The Prairie Do re.
BY A. E. D.
Oh, fly away, e'er the prairies roam,
Thou beautiful bird of the West
Oh, fly away, to my native home,
Thou'lt be a welcomed guest.
Bear a message from us sweet dove,
To that long-loved cheerful spot,
For there are friends whom we dearly love.
That shall never be forgot.
Oh, tell them we oft grow sad and lone,
When we think of the days of yore,
We miss the familiar smile and tone,
Of the friends we loved before.
Ob, tell them that absence, nor change
Can sever the sacred ties,
Of love, of friendship, for is not oura
A love which never dies.
Oh, tell them, we would be happy here,
Yes, wo would be content,
If those we loved in youth were near,
Pleasantly would time be spent.
Then fly away to my once sweet home,
Thou bird of the airy wing,
Bear this message to that loved dome,
Aud hear the songs they sing.
Oh, then return with the speed of love,
When night grows dark and chill,
And tell, O, tell us thou innocent dove
Do they love, do they love us still.
We know there are some in that distant
Who love and remember us yet
And though in the far off west we roam
We know they will not forget.
Ob 1 there is a pure, a constant love,
Which lasts and lives forever,
Time I know its strength may prove,
But the chain it cannot sever.
Though we iny never meet on earth,
There is a brighter boms
Where we may meet, and ever dwell,
In tl.at celestial dome.
Oh, may we soar on wings of love,
Beyond the azure vaulted sky j
Reign with the angelic hosts above,
Around God's thrown on high.
BT AUGUSTA MOO BE.
A little lovely Baby Boy,
With features soft and fair,
With smiles upon his dimpled cheeks,
And sunshine in his hair.
With kisses on his rosy lips,
And love within his eyes
This is my last year's jewel bright,
The treasure that I prize.
Tbe New Year hath no gift so tweet,
Nor halt so full of joy,
Nor half so good and beautiful,
As my dear Biby Boy.
The Western Man.
He rolled the prairie up like cloth,
Drank the Mississippi dry,
Put the Alleghany in his hat,
A steamboat in his eye,
Aid for his breakfast, buffaloes,
Some twenty-one did try.
He whipped the whole Camanche tribe
One day before he dined j
And for a walking cane be look
A Califori.ia pli.e (
And when he frowned he was so black,
The sun it could not ahine.
He whipped a ton of grizzly bears
One morning with a fan
And proved himself by all these feats,
To be a western man.
The Great Writ.
Little do we, of the present generation,
imagine what an iiea is yet to be convey
ed ly the term " Great West." . Indeed,
this miht Le said of every part of our
country, but particularly of the Yest, the
South-we&t and the North-west. It is of
the Wet we speak, and wo mean by that
word, the country west of the Allegha
nips and the Mississippi river, extending
to the far reaching Pacific, whise shores
already begin to teem with Anglo-Amer.
! The old Thirteen," grand and glorl.
ous in the records of the past, can no
, longer compete in civilization with the
i march of progress iu the ruighty West.
And this we:iern empire, what was it
half 1 a century ago? A.n unbroken and
bawling wilJermas a royal hunting.
ground for the untamed savage, who has
melted away before the science and art
or the White Man, like the mountain mitts
before the summer's eun.
Great and marvelous as has been its
development, we do not yet conceive the
nature of the Republican Empire that is
to rise in the Great West. If our wes
tern cities have not been, like those of
Sardanapalus, built in a day, we may
point to Cincinnati, Columbus, Louisville,
St. Louis, Chicago, Cleveland, Milwau
kee, Detroit, Keokuk, etc., with their
hundreds of thousands, and say (hey have
been built in the life of a man. Aye,
the very spot from which we now write,
wns " three score and ten" years ago,
shaded by the primitive groves first seen
by the old French voyagers! Where the
fnthers brought down the noble deer and
the subtle turkey, where they met and
c mtended with the Read Man for the
right of possession, the sons are piling
stone on stone, adding houso to house,
block to block, and street to street ; where
the wild whoop of the savage, the howl
of wild beasts, and the sweet song of the
native bird were mingled in a common
chorus, we now listen to the clank and
rattle of machinery, the roar, bustle and
life of a mighty city, containing a quarter
of a million of busy mortals, each pursu
ing in peace his chosen avocation.
May we not, then, even in this simple
aspect, be proud of the mighty West ?
May we not point with exultation to the
triumph of labor, end peace, and safely
predict a brilliant future for this vast re
public? No matter what demagogues
may say, we are one people, indissolubly
united by the strongest bondo and inter
ests known to men. The South and the
East have sent hither their sons and
daughters, and nobly have they repre
sented the old commonwealths. Until re
cently, the people of the West, like a
new married couple, coi stantly looked to
the old homestead for every assistance,
but nqw we have come to feel as heads of
families that we must rely upon our
selves. We have learned to build cities,
railroads, etc. Western rivers are navi
gated by Western Boats, propelled by
Western Machinery. Our miners have
gone down into the bowels of the earth,
and brought forth specimens of our vat
Mineral Wealth. The black smoke of
the furnace and forge rises like ominous
clouds, revealing to us that Science and
Art have at last begun to exert their sway
over the progress and development of the
Great West. It is now to the West that
the East looks for a markat, and to it for
provisions, and the great elements of
wealth and national greatness.
The ever potent Press is radiating true
and noble sentiments to every family, and
our public schools are directing our chil
dren's minds into pursuits of practical
utility. Scitnlife Artisan.
ScMMta Complaints.-Why should
there be summer complaints and winter
complaints, apri ig diseases and autumnal
disease? Simply because people live in
defiance of physiological laws at all sea
sons. In the various seasons of the year,
the different circumstances of temperature, i
diet, exercise, etc., determine the way
and manner in which nature makes the
remedial effort to free the system of its
accumulated impurities, and this deter
mines the form and charcter of the dis
ease. In the relaxing heats of summer
the processes of depuration through the
skin and lungs are much less vigorous
than in the more bracing at uospbere of
winter, hence all irregularities of life,
and all improprieties in eating and drink
ing, affect the bowels as the chief depur
ating channel. This is the rationale of
the prevalence of choleras, dysenteries,
and diarrheas in the warm season.
We have long been of opinion that the
doctrines taught by medical men, and the
measures recommended by Boards of
Health, in their application to the preven
tion and cure of bowel complaints, are es
sentially erroneous in nearly all impor
tant particulars. Rice, fine flour, farina,
starch, and animal food are recommend
ed as the proper dietary to prevent or cure
all diseases which are attended with loos
new of the bowels.
We hold to the contrary doctrine. We
regard the safety of the patient, and his
exemption from any fatal or even very
severe malady during the hot season, to
be associated with loose bowels. The
great error and danger is in constipation.
Constipation is itself the cause of the rio
! lent struggle which so frequently results
111 the death of some form of bowel com
plaint. Tbe dietary should, therefore, be
just the opposite. Instead of being re
atricted to fine and concentrated prepare
tions, all of these should be excluded. It
cannot be too coarse, or rather too natur
al. Uubolted bread and mushes, plain
vegetables, and ripe fruits are the pre
ventive remedies. We know scores of
families in New York city and elsewhere
who feed their children 111 this way, and
who religiously eschew flush, fish, fowl,
nne flour, all greasy and starchy prepare
tions, as well as candies and confections
of every sort, and their children never
have any serious bowel complaints.
Convulsions, of which children die in this
city at the rate of fifteen huudred a year
or more, are produced solely by coiistipa
ting and indigestible food.

Newport Mercury, published in Newport
Rhode Island, completed the hundredth
year of its existence last Saturday, the
first number of that journal having been
issued June 12, 1768. It was founded
by James Franklin, and his press- the
one on which he and his younger brother,
Da. Benjamin l rakklim, sooften work
ed has remained in the oflice to the pres
ent day, as a venerable relic. The Mer
cury was afterwards published successfully
by Mrs. Ann Franklin, the mother of
James and Benjamin; Samuel Hall, who
married her daughter, and others. The
present publishers are F. A. Pratt &. Co.
They stereotyped for circulation, on the
centennial anniversary of the Mercury,
a fao simile of us issue for December 19,
175o the earliest perfect number in their
I osseseion. it is a dingy little sheet, about
7 x 12 inches. The contents are letters
from London, tlescrptive of the then polit
ical alfurs 111 Europe, a short essay on
agriculture, an account of the taking of
1 1. Duquesne from the r rench in Novem
ber, 1758, sixteen ordinary advertisements
and one special notice most conspicuously
across tbe editorial page, to wit : " Any

what can be more noble than the equip

we are dead, to move gradually en to

This is to win a victory from death, for
this has no dying in it. - -

office he performs is toil. , Oh, it is rot

A little song was uttered somewhere
long ago : it wandered through : the twi
light feebler than a star ; it died upon the
ear But the printer takes it up where it
was lying there in the silence like a
wounded bird, and he equips it anew
wih wings, and be sends it forth from
the Ark, that had preserved it, and it
flies on into the future with the olive
branch of peace ; and around the world

A Fair Divisior. A lady tells this
story : " I have been out to Indiana on a
visit, and while there I found a kitten,
which I bought and brought home for a
plaything for my two children. Te pre
vent a dispute about the ownership of puss,
I proposed and it was agreed, that the
head of the kitten should be mine, the
body should be the baby's, and Eddie the
eldest only three years should I the
proprietor of the long and beautiful tail.
Eddie rather objected at first to this divi
sion, as putting him off with an extreme
ly small share of the animal, but soon be
came reconciled to tbe division, and quite
proud of his ownership in the graceful
terminus of the kitten. One day soon
alter, 1 heard the poor puss making a
dreadful mewing, and called out to Eddie I
