Train t!ir Irish Li My U'lluu'.e.
Bachelor's Ilali ! what a queer looking place it Li
Kape me from .such all the days of my lite;
ilute, but I think what a burninir ilirace it is,
Never at all to be getting, a wife.
See the old bachelor, gloomy and sal enough,
Placing his tay kettle over the lire;
Soon it slips over; St. Patrick he's nnd enough
(If he were present) to light with the squire.
Now. like a ho" in a mortar bed wallowing.
(Awkward enough) see him k.nading his dough;
Troth! if the bread' he could ate without swallowing,
IIuw it would lavor las paiai3 you khow.
His dishcloth is missing, the pi?s are devouring it,
In the pursuit he has battered his shin;
A p'ate wanted washing, grimalkin id scouring it,
Thunder and turf, what a pi:kle he'd in.
Pots, dishes, and pans such gr?.zy commodities,
Ashes and prater skins kiver the tloor;
ilis cupboard's a store-house of comical od ditties,
Things that had never been neighbors before.
Hi meal being o'er, the table's left setting so;
Dishes take care of vourself if you can;
lilt hanger returns, then he's Joining and trettmg so; i
Och ! let huii alone, the bas.e of a man ! J
Late in the night he goes to o M s.uveriu , j
.'eer the bit is the bed nude at nil;
He croons like a tarapm under his kivertu
Bid luck to the picture of B --.ch'-lor's Hall !

27. e Three Jolly Ilusfxinds.-Ti.rte Jolly Husbands,
out in the country, by the name of Ton Watson, Joe
Brown, and Bill Walker, sat late one ev ening dining at
a village tavern, until being pretty well corned, they a
greed that each one, returning home, should Jo the first
thing his wife told him, in default of which he should
the next morning pay the bill. They then separated
ibr the night, engaging to meet again next morning,
and give an honest account of their proceedings at
home, so far as they related to the payment of the bill.
The next morning Walker and Brow n were early at
their posts; but it was some time before Watson made
his appearance. Walker began first:
You see, when I entered my house, the candle was
out, and as the fire gave but a glimmering of light, 1
came near walking, acciJcr.tly, into a pot of batter that
the pancakes were to be made of this morning. MT
wife, who was dreadfully out of humor at sitting up so
long, said to me, sarcastically, 4 Do put your fool in
the batter !' 'Just as you say, Maggav,' said I, and
thereupon, without the least hesitation, 1 set my foot in
tlie pot of batter, and then went to bed." Next, Joe
Brown told his story: "My wife," said he, "had al
ready retired to rest in our usual sleeping room, w hich
adjoins the kitchen, and the door of which was left ajar.
Not being able to navigate perfectly well, you know, I
made a dreadful clattering among the household furni
ture: and my wife in no pleasant tone, bawled out, ' Do
brt nk the porri!sre pot, Joe!' No sower said than
done. I seized hold of the ball of the pot, and striking
it against the chimney jam. broke it in a bund rot pie
ces. After this e.vplo.t, I retired to rest, and got a cer
tain lecture all night ibr my pains." It was how Tim
Watson's turn to give an account of himself; which i.o
did, with it very long face as f .11 lows: .Mv wife gavo
me the moot unlucky command in the World : f.r, u- I
was blundering up stairs in th" dark, she cried oat. ' ..--break

said I, as I gathered myself up, I'll sooner pav the- bill.
And so, landlord, here's the cash for you. Th:s is the

TlllXChS A FARMER SHOULD NOT DO.
A tanner should never undertake to cultivate more
land than he can do tin roughly ; half til'eu land is
growing poorer well tilled land is constantly impro
ving. A firmer should never keep more cattle, horses,
beep, or hogs, than he can keep in order; an animal
m nigii or.
r, the hist of December, is
A farmer should never depend on his neighbor for
what he can, by care and good manage. m-r.t, produco
on his own farm ; he should never beg fruit while he
can plant trees, or borrow tools while he can make or
buv ; a high authority has said, "the borrower is a ser-'.
vant to the lender." " '
The farmer should never be so immersed in political
matters as to forget to sow his wheat, d.g his potatoes,
and bank up his cellar; nor should he be so inattentive
to them as to remain ignorant of those great questions
of national and state policy w hich will always agitate,
more or less, a free people.
A farmer should slum the door? of a bank, as he would
an approach of the plague or cholera ; banks are for
men cf speculation, and theirs is a business with which
farmers should have little to do.
A farmer should never be ashamed of his calling; we
know that no man can be entirely independent, vet the
firmer sltould remember, that if any one can be said to
possess that enviable distinction, he is the man.
Xo fanner should allow the reproach of neglecting
education to lie again-t himself or family ; if knowledge
is power, the beginning of it should be early and deep
ly laid in the district school.
A farmer should never use ardent spirits as a drink :
if. while undergoing severe fatigue, and the hard labor
of the summer, he would enjoy robust health, let him
be temperate mail thmcs.
A farmer should never refuse a fiir price ibr any
thing he wishes to sell ; we have known a man who
had several hundred bushels of wheat to dispose of, re
fuse Ss. because he wanted Ss. Od., and after keeping1
his wheat six months, was glad to get (is. 6d. for ih
A farmer should never allow his windows to be filled
with red cloaks, tattered coats, and old hats; if he does
lie will most assuredly acquire the reputation of a man
who tarries long at the whiskey, leaving his wife and
children to freeze or starve at home.
There are three things of which the man who aims
at the character of a prosperous farmer will never be
niggardly manure, tillage, and seed ; and there are
three things of which he will never be too liberal
promises, time, and credit.
