We miss thee at home, yet we miss thee,
Since you sloped without bidding adieu j
And prayers have since dally been offered,

That to wish you might ever be haunted,
With visions your conscience could trace
Would be useless, for villains like you, air,
Don't have that Invaluable grace.

Of " means" all thy wants to supply ;
Never dreamed of thy acting the scoundrel,
But they've now found a different reply.
The shadows of evening are gathering,
O, where is the wanderer nowj
The hail stones, like hen's "(tgs are falling,
Let us hope they may visit thy brow I
But bear on thy bosom this message,
We'll watch thee where'er thou may'st roami
And if you want a good flinging, .
Just make your appeararce at home.
The Manners of the Mother
Mould the Child.
There is no disputing thia fact, it shine
in the face of every Jiule child. This
coarse, brawling, scolding woman, will
have vicious, brawling, fighting children,
She who cries on every occasion, "1 11 box
your ears 1 II slap your laws 1 II break
your neck, as if her no-womanly manners
were openly displayed in the public street.
These remarks were suggested by the
conversation in an omnibus that noble in
stitution for the student of men and man
ners between a friend and schoolmaster.

sharp. His wit flashed like the polished

I can tell the mother by the boy. The
urchin who draws back with doubled fists,
and plunges at his playroute, if he looks at
bun askance, has a very questionable moth
er. She may feed hun and clothe him,
cram him with sweetmeats, and coax him
with promises, but if she gets mad she
fights. She will pull him by the jacket;
the will give him a knock on the back; she
wil drag him by the hair; she will call hun
all sorts of wicked names; while pa.-sion
plays over her face in lambent flames that
curl and writhe out the corners of her eyes.
'And we never eee the courteous little
fellow with smooth locks and gentle man
ners in whom delicacy does not detract
from courage and manliness, but what we
tay, 'that boy's mother is a true lady.
Her woids and ways are soft, loving and

Who Marry and have Children
More than four sevenths of the mama
ges in Massachusetts are among the for
eign born.' Why is it? For tho most sim
ple of reasons the foreign born can allord
to get married, and the native born can not
and this must be, so long as our extravi
irant modes of life continue. In social life
there never was a people tending to deep
er and mora destructive social corruption
and that is most evident from the record
of all the courts, and the columns of all the
newspapers than Americans. Our fa
thers used to tell of the profligacy of Fnris
their children tell of the mysteries of New
York a city not fur behind any in Lu
ropo. And making proper allowances fur
fsize, lmw far is New York ahead of our
other cities and towns? Once was the
time when a wife was a help meet;" now
in a thousand cases you can change "meet''
to "eat" and make it read more truthfully.
We boast of our system of education;
we have female high schools, female col
leges, female medical schools, and feinalo
heavens. Our cirla are refined, learned
and wite; they can sing, dance, play pianos,
pniut, talk French and Italian, and all the
soft languages, write poetry, and love like
Venuses. They are ready to be courted
at ten years; and can be taken from school
and married at fifteen, and divorced at
twenty. They make splendid shows on
bridal tours, can coquette and flirt at the
watering-places, and shine like angels at
winter parlies. Hut heaven be kind to the
poor wretch that marries in the fashiona
ble circles. Having children now is left
to those who is the least able to maiotuin
them! What lady thinks of having chil
dren about her now? or if she is so unfor
tunate, don't she put them to wet nnrses to
begin with, and boarding schools after
ward? We repeat we have come to a
point where young men hesitate and grow
old before they can decide whether they
can marry, and afterward keep clear of
bankruptcy and crime. What is the con
sequence? .There are more persons living
a single life are there more leading a
virtuous life? It is time for mothers to
know that the extraviganco they encour
age is destructive oi ine virtue or uieir
children; that all the foollah expenditures
making to rush the daughters to matrimo
ny, are, instead of answering that end, ten
ding to destroy the institution of marriage
Storing Potatoes for Winter. '
Jn no former season has so largo a
crop of potatoes been grown in the west,
nor have they ever been of better bize
and finer quality. When potatoes ma
ture Into in the season, and the weather
is dry, they retain their good mealy qual
ities much longer than when they mature
early, aud tho summer afterwards proves
wet. Wheu these are dug and put aay
for winter, after the manner practiced by
many, they are injured by heat, germi
nate in the pile, and thoy sprout and be
come watery and of inferior quality.
The most perfect method of keeping po-
tatocs in winter, is in a dry house above
the freeziag temperature. A potato
house will preserve the crop in the most
I r - l l ! . i. l t
oi iwnn uiuti, u mm mum icao nwi
than is required lo bury in the ordinary
To way, and m a house, they are cc:sible
ut nil times when tho weather will admit
f their removal.
When potatoes tire lo bo rut away in
pits, care should bo ttikth to keep them
as dry ns possible, and to ventilate tho
uie so that no confined air elmll remain.
The best method is to select a hich. drv
ridge, and when tho pilo is formed, give '
it a thick covering of straw, grass or stalks,
with a sufficient thickness of earth, to
render them secure from frosl, and then
covrr the whole with plank, so as to turn
oil" tho water into trenches, which sur
round the heaps. In forming tho pile, a
tube, or several of them, according to the
eiigtn of the pit, should bo extended into
tho body of the heap and reach to the top
or mo eartn, lor the escape of heated air.
These may be fivo or six inches square,
and in very cold weather, the opening
should be closed with a bundle of straw
or hay. Without this precaution, potatoes '
that are designed for seed, ara as much
injured as if they were intended for the '
table. Ileforn plnnting time, thev are ao
much grown, that their strength and vi(r i
or, are so ulucli exhausted, that the second .
growth is niiicli weaker than the first,
causing slender, sickly vines, and a great
ly (iimiiiioneu crop.
J.xcept tho covering of plank, turnips
and other roots, should be stored and ven
tilated in tho sumo manner.
Savino Caiibaoin. The best way to
preserve Cabbages green all winter, so
that their good quulities shall in no man
ner deteriorate, is as follows: As late
this month ns ihe weather will allow, dig
out your cabbages that you have set apart
for winter use,- dig trenches, say eighteen
or twenty inches apurt, and from twelve
to twenty feet iu length, as may be most
convenient, and in accordance with the
quantity to be preserved, transplant your
cabbages firmly in these trenches as close
ly as they will stand together. When your
bed is finished, raise a platform tome
eighteen or twenty inches high over them,
which can be made of any refuse posts,
rails, or boards about the place; across this
place a few bean poles or lath, and upon
the whole throw a quantity of bean haulm,
corn stalks, straw, or any material of this
kind, as a protection against wet and frost,
and you can eat green cabbage up to
April, finer than if plucked from the gar
den, in October..
Dress He ware of a woman who wor
ships dress. In nine cases ont of ten, such
a woman is without a redeeming qualifi
cation. Dressy people are generally those
who lack brains and education, and cheat
themselves into the belief that the world,
in admiring ihcir gewgaws, forget that
their hearts are untenanted by a single
womanly emotion. A man who is attract.
ed by mere dress, is unobserving of the
name, ani is a dear bargain even to the
fool who entraps him.

growth of corn. He wandered for three
days, subsisting during that time on green
corn. His negroes becoming alarmetf
about him, commenced a diliigent search,
and found him on the fourth day. He

dry Micks together to make a fire, the
green raw corn having produced an un
