The 'cait ax and his watch. A

tors had passed over him and their frosts
were scattered thick upon his temples. His
figure was stately jand erect ; his person
commanding ; and there was a gravity up
on tils, countenance Uwiiniigboth his age
and profession.' A large family grew up
around him, and he saw his son s sons, even
of the secMid generation. , Misfortune had
luid her hand upon him, and"poverty with
fts privations hi red not to embitter and
sadden tho evening ol his days. - Many
time have I watched his venerable form, as
leaning upon a staff he entered the sanctu.
ary on a summer s babbnth morn ; and as
I have cant my eye into an adjoining grave
yard, I have reflected In a little time,
white-headed, aged man, you will he down
in tile narrow.house. Ilut to you it will be
tho crave of dishonor, for intemperance
lias blown upon you its searing blasts."
In truth, the aged, white-hcndea man
was a dru'iitari',and for his drunkenness I
saw him expelled from the church. Despair
then sat upon his prospects, and his case
was regarded as beyond recovery. Just
then a temperance society was formed in
tho place f. the subject was carried homo to
every family; the white-headed old man
heard of a way, of escape, even for him :
le embraced it as his lust, his only hope,
and now he is no longer a captive. Ho is
again a brother among his brethren, and
when he goes down to his grave it will be in
peace, like a shock ol corn fully ripe.

The American Eaglk.- A boatman,
while cngnged in conveying salt on the
Oiiondago lake, a few years since, saw a
largo grav eagle cutting its gyrations in the
air, apparently noticing some prey in the
lake beneath. In a moment he poised, and
darted from bis attitude into the water, from
which he was unable to rise. A continued

The day has eotne, when father and son, as Ike.

ger' point the Cjffspring ready to rise in vengc.
ance against his sire, to achieve bis purpose1. And
however ardent may be our political attachmnat to
thii or fAat party, we shall cautiously refrain from
expressing auy opinion relative to National affairs,
which would tend in the least to disseminate the
,seeds of discord and strife, that are already by
far, too .numerous, aa well as too deatrurtim in
the peace and prosperity of our country.
' Hence, in regard to political affair we shall oh.
serve a strict neutral ground admitting into our
column nothing neither for nor against our party
preferences. , .
Knowing the incalculable eniovment of a hr
