We'll try it, we'll do It, and never despair, While there's light in the sun shine, and breath in the sir The bold independence that labor shall buy, Shall strengthen our hands and forbid us to sigh Away, far away, let us hope for the best. And build p a horns In ths land of ths West" The steamer reached N., their destined Hopping place, juat as the morning sun wi bathing with its amber light, the soft verdure that covered the hill, ruing with a graceful swell behind the city, and ai from the landing they patted through it to the only hotel it contained, they found that that bote!, a few stores, shops, and sa loons, 6 or 8 comfortable houses and i few small cottages and log houses, at that time constituted the whole city of N., It was indeed a new place, and yet in the moning of its strength, but from its fine location, it gave eridt-nt priw of iu fu ture imports nee. Though rude in comparison with eas tern cities, and villages, it was all they had expected, for they knew bow short a time since it was known only as the re gion and domain of the red man, end they had expected the stern labor of aid ing- in laying the foundation of its future prosperity, and commencing with the first improvements in the new country. With an ever fresh delight they often wandered over the hill, rising on the west of the city, gazing on the beautiful coun try spread out before them, and the broad green fields, and rolling prairies, were indeed beautiful, when clothed in the first freshness of spring's green robe. Then, at the east, far in the distance flowed the placid waters of the Missouri, while be yond arose the bold and barren bluffs of Iowa. Then they found scattered in rich profusion over the prairies, nearly as great a variety of flowers, growing in wild luxurisnce, as are often cultivated in the gardens of the east. As a farmer, too, Mr. Marvin noted the strong, deep soil, already valuable for grazing, and requiring but cultivation to produce line crops of wheat and grain, and fully realized the 'advantages it pos sessed for agricultural purposes, over the rough hill country, he had left. And yet there were times they looked back to the quiet, picturesque beauty, of their native valley, and their own little cottage home, peeping out from the vines, shrubbery and shade trees, surrounding it, the still hill side, or frowning mountain, the wind ing rivulet, the orchard, and the garden, which constituted the beauty and charm of almost every New England landscape, not with vain regret, but almost the same yearning tenderness with which they of ten regarded their friends they had left behind. As soon as possible a valuable claim was selected, a comfortable log house erected, and Mrs. Marvin bus ed herself in endeavoring to arrange tho few articles of household furniture they bad brought with them, so as to present something the appearance of comfort, if nothing of the elegance and luxury of her old home. With a cheerful heart and active spirit, she readily undertook her share of the hardships and labor and pri vation necessary for the first few years, thus rendering her husband important aid. Edward, her oldest son, too, now a strong, manly boy of neatly 7 years of age, readily entered into the cheerful, in dustrious spirit of his parents, and often rendered valuable aid in the many im portant duties devolving upon them. Thanks to that education which New England so freely bestows upon her sons and daughters, and the knowledge of phys iology, long since instilled into the minds of the parents, in school, they knew how doubly important it was that plain, whole some food, should be supplied for the fam ily, and regular daily bathfhg, sboud be practiced, as change of climate and the neglect of these, alone, often induced fe vers, dyspepsia, neuralgia and ague, and they were astonished at the increase of their own physical and mental strength and the habits of self reliance, which they saw daily developing in the characters of their children, in the industrious and en ergetic course they had marked out for themselves, and those only who have led an active, energetic and useful life, can fully understand how a life of idleness and self indulgence, often deadens the physi cal and intellectual powers of man, and all the nobler sympathies of his nature. -The scenery surrounding their Nebras ka home, waa indeed pleasant and cheer ful. It was situated on an elevated plat of ground, about one mi'e from the city of N.i commanding a fine view of it aud the river. Behind the house was a pleas ant open grove, which, through, all the long summer days, resounded with the melody of countless birds. Before the house was a green plat, sloping gently to the south, while on the west arose two gracefully rounded hills, so green and lovely when covered with waving grass, and interspersed with the stunted, knotty oak, to common a tree in Nebraska. During the winter, when the pressure of their daily duties were much diminish cd, it became the great object of Mrs. Marvin, to instruct her children in the first rudiments of education, and thus keep them in readiness to make father improvements when a school should be opened near them. They hod brought a variety of. books with them, and papers, informing them of the events of the day, regularly found their way to their distant home, and were a never failing source of enjoyment. And thus in the improvement of their farm the pleasant scenes surrounding them the faithful discharge of their daily duties and the cordial affection and sincere friendly interest of many friends around them, they found contentment and happi ness ; and learned when in the enjoy ment of health and plenty, how little need we have to search for happiness, amid scenes of pomp and luxury, for like the dove she oftenest seeks some secluded re treat, in which to build her nest. They had their annoyances, their privations and hardships, and certainly could have ren dered themselves unhappy, had they des pised the simple blessings they were en joying, while vainly reaching for those beyond their grasp, and thus " while looking at the stars hare neglected to no lice the sweetness of the violets at their feet." Two years have passed, and again spring, fragrant and beautiful, has return ed to Nebraska. . She is again putting forth her buds and blossoms, and again clothing the awakened earth, with her carpet of green. Two years have pass ed since Henry Marvin sought a home in the west, and now in the spring of 1848 we find him with increased pride and pleasure, regarding the spot of ground he had chosen for his home and increased thankfulness to God, who had given for their possession, so beautiful a portion of the earth, and contented and grateful hearts, to enjoy the gift. The lapse of two years have indeed brought many changes in the vicinity of his home. He still looks out upon the same scene and lovely landscape. The river still flows on in its brightness, but each morning the smoke rises heaven ward from more than two hundred hap py homes, in the busy city of N. Church es and schools have been established there, and it is now known, far and near, as a flourishing young city, in the west The winter has passed, and a mild and pleasant winter, indeed it has proved, iu cheerful fireside evenings, with its work, its studies and its amusements, are past, too. The children have returned from their winter school, and spring, busy, enlivening spring, again rails thm fonh to labor. They are busy with their tittle plats of flowers and vegetables, in the gurden, and also earnestly engaged in making additions to the inclosed piece of ground, they have reserved for the culti vation of fruit trees; and Mr. Marvin is indeed out " amid his own flocks and herds, tilling bis own soil and breathing the fresh, pure air of heaven," as he to often wish ed, when obliged to labor daily, in the close, confined air of the workshop, and his vision of happiness is fully realized. It is true that life can be to none an unal loyed and unvarying scene of happinets and enjoyment. Neither can we believe it is designed to be a state of alternate hope and fear, bright prospects and un fulfilled aspirations. " There is a fount ain, still and deep, welling up from the inmost heart, that comes only with the matured intellect, with the full flow of the tried soul, conscious of iu strength," that can only be aiuined by a faithful dis charge of the simple daily duties of life obedience to the laws of our being, and an unfaltering and unwavering trust in the care of our Heavenly Father. A contemporary, noticing the appoipt ment of a trend as postmaster, says: " If he attends to the mails as well aa he dose the females, he will make a very attentive and efficient officer."- Pooa Fellow, An inquisitive Yan kee was standing at a tavern door, in the lower part of Jersey, watching a funeral pass by At the head of it was a large manure cart, moving along very slowly and making no ellort to turn out for toe procession. The Yankee was astonished at this want of confidence on part of the driver of the said cart, and turning to a tll!l- ll-L' L ! ,7.

" Oh, that a a part of the procession," remarked the Pluladelphian, gravely. " Du tell ! Yeou don't sa v so ! Ileow ?" exclaimed the astonished Yankee. " Why, you see, it is very poor sandy soil about here, and nothing comes up they plant unless they manure it well ( so when they go to bury a fellow, they throw a whole cart load of manure into the grave, to mak him rut on judgmtni dayT A farmer who bad employed a green Emeralder, ordered him to give the mule some corn in the ear.
