Never be oast down by trifles. If a spi der breaks his thread twenty times, twenty times will ho mend it again. Make up your minds to do a thing, and jov will do it. Fear not, if a trouble oomes upon you; If tho sun is going down, look ap to tho stars; if tho earth is dark, keep yo;ir eye on heaven ? With God’s presence, and God’s promises, a man or child may be cheerful. Mind what you run after ! Nevor bo content with a bubble that will burst, or a firewood that will end in smoke and dark ness. Get that which you can keep, and which is w’orth keeping. KKcctoral Vole of 1852. No. of Electors. Pierce. Scott Duplin—B Southerland, W il Ward Edgecombe—R R Bridgers, J S Dancy.

Life, ’tis true, has its strange and eventful scenes, mingled with sighs, shouts of joy, smiles and tears. And yet, with these manifest sighs and tears, there is a cold philosophy lords it over our being, and rules our immortal souls by shutting up the very fountain of tears. Day after day are we witnessing this cold philosophy [ of the- world. Man’s death and burial cre- I ates no sad thoughts beyond the circle of j the home where he was intimately 1*2 j known. The dio and bustle of the world I goes on as ever, tho hearse and the funeral j train sweep by, and mayhap a few of our j fellows on their way to the haunts of busi' 13 j ness, halt but a moment to ask of the de- i ceased, and then walk on forgetful that a ! heart has ceased to beat forever. Even j the mourner’s tears that gush up with a I seemingl3>^ ceasless flow, are soon dried up, ! and the veil and scarf, the dark badges of I death are cast aside, and the lifeless clod of I the valley forgotten, amid the pomp and j airy vanity of a vain glittering world. Btit i such is life. If we die to-day, the si.n will i shine as brightly, and the birds «>:ug as J sweetly to-morrow ■, not a wheel in the groat 12 ; machinery of tho business world will cease, ! and scarce a voice of mirth be cheoked.— 5 1 This is life; how rapidly it passes and how ! soon we are forgotten! ^ I Jov IN Adversity.
