' Whv. Nellie, I thought all farmers lived

No doubt, but let ine proceed. In this
building, termed a ' farm-house,' there d wells
an old. or rather aged man, and a beautiful
vouuiT female, whom he calls his wile. She
was formerly from the city, but having got
her head as yours is crammed full of
pleasing notions respecting a romantic emm
try life, and being urged by her speculative
parents, she accepted the lot of a farmer's
wife. Her husband was rich, and she thought
that she would have servants to go and come
at her bidding. She had not seen her future
plaeo of residence, and nothing had been
said about it; there, she still indulged her
romantic dreams of a beautiful white cottage,
with green blinds, piazzas and arbors cov

AN' EXTUAOUDINAHY LAMP.
Among the number of patents recently ta
ken out in Kiiglaml is one by K. W hide, for
a candle lamp of very novel character. The
lamp has a dial or clock face, aud, as the
candle burns, the hands mark thc hour sand
minutes correet'y, and a hammer strikes the
time. Asa chamber-light for a sick room,
it marks the time, ami can be set to strike
at any given periods, when the patient re
quires attention. As a night light, it marks
the time on a transparent dial, and rings an
alarm at any stated period, and iu ten min
utes afterward extinguishes the candle, or
will continue to strike every second until
the party gets out of bed and stops it; and
if a very heavy sleeper requires to bo rous
ed, it will fire off a percussion cap. As a
table lamp it marks the time ami strikes
thi hours and has a regulator and index,
by which may be ascertained the amount
of light and economy of consumption of the
various caudles of different makers.

un the Jionuou I lines :
Karl of Aberdeen rose to explain
, i.i ie-
the circumstances which had induced him
to undertake the t.i.-k of forming a new ad
ministration; and said though loth his
tastes ami habits, as well as the re
that he had arrived at the very verg

of the lvhieen. lie had been accused, in
deed, of entering into a con-piracy to ovcr-

only say that his efforts hml bein direeP
towards keeping it, in, and not towards its
destruction; and so far was he from o inspir
ing against the Karl of Derby and his eal
lc agues, that he had actually made arrange

Circumstances, however, had induced

lay before the House a sketch of its policy.
With regard to foreign powers, it would
adhere to the principle which had been pur

sisted in respecting the rights of all itulc-
p ndent States, iu abstaining from interf'i-r-
ence in their internal affairs, w hile nt the
same time we asserted our own rights and
interests, and above all, in an earnest desire
to secure the general peace of Kurope.
Tins policy might be observed without
mi v relaxation of tho-e di tensive measure.-
w hich had been lately undertaken, and had,
perhaps, been too long neglected. At home

The noble Karl, too, had spoken of the

that there was as much regulation in tlm

is in the circulation of the blood or the

If we take a drop of water from the Si a,
