BT THE LATE WILLIS G-AYLORD CLARK.
Solemn, yet beautiful to view,
Month of my heart! thou dawnest here,
With sad and failed leaves to strew :
The summer's melancholy bier.
The moaning of thy wi.ids I hear,
As the red sunset dies afar,
As bars of purple clouds appear,
Obscuring every western star.
The solemn month I I hear thy voice ;
It tells my soul of other days,
When but to live was to rejoice;
When earth was lovely te my gaze !
Oh, visions bright oh, Blessed hours,
Where are their living raptures now?
I ask my spirit's wearied (lowers
I ask my pale and fevered brow !
I look to Nature, and behold
My life's dim emblems rustling round,
In hues of crimson andof gold
The year's dead honors on the gronnd.
And, sighing with the winds, I feel
While their low pinions murmur by,
How much their Sweeping tones reveal
Of life and human destiny.
When Spring's delightsome moments shone,
They came in 'zephyrs from the West,
They bore the wood-lark's melting tone,
They stirred the blue lake's glassy breast;
Through Summer, fainting in the heat,
They lingered in the forest shade ;
But, changed and strengthen'd now, they beat
; In storm, o'er mountain, glen, and glade.
How like those transports of the breast '
When life is fresh and joy is new,
Soft as the halcyon's downy nest,
And transient all as they are true !
They stir the leaves in that bright wreath
Which Hope about her forehead twines,
Till Grief's hot sighs around it breathe,
Then Pleasure's lip its smile resigns.
Alas, for Time, and Death, and Care,
What gluom about our way tliey fling !
Like r.lomls in Autumn's gusty air, .
The burial pageant of the Soring: -The
dreams that each successive year
Seemed bathed in hues of brighter pride,
At last like withered leaves appear,
And sleep in darkness side by side !

'SAYS HE' -AND SAYS I,'
As Awkwaed Phedicamekt for ak Inhocbst
Talking of a man's making & hero of himself,
reminds me of an old friend of mine, who is fond
of telling long stories about fights and quarrels that
he has had in his day, and who always makes his
hearer his opponent for the time, so as to give effoct
to what he is saying. Not, long ago I met him on
'Change, at a business hour, when all the com
mercing multitudes of the city were together, and
you could scarcely turn for the people. The old
fellow fixed his eye on me ; there was a fatal fasci
nation in it. Getting off without recognition
would have been unpardonable disrespect. In a
moment, his finger was in my button-hole, and his
rheumy optics glittering with the satisfaction of
your true bore, when he has met with an unresist
ing subject. I listened to his common-places with
the utmoit apparent satisfaction. Directly, he be
gan to speak of an altercation which he once had
with an officer of the navy, He was relating the
particulars. 'Some words,' said he 'occurred be
tween him and me. Now yon know that he is a
much younger man than I am ; in fact, about your
age. Well he 'made use of an expression' which I
did cot exact 1y like. Says I to him, says I, 'What
do you mean by that 1 Why,' says he to me, says
he, I mean just what I say. Then I began to burn,
There was an impromptu elevation of my person
al drandruff which was unaccountable. I didn't
waste words on him ; I just took him in this way,'
(here the old spoony suited the action to the word,
by seizing the collar of my coat, before the assent'
Wage,) 'and says I to him, says I, 'You infernal
scoundrel, I will punish you for your insolence on
thf spot 1 and the manner iu which I shook him
Gust In this way) was really a warning to a person
' I felt myself at this moment in a beautiful ptedi
cament: in the midst of a large congregation of bu
sincss people: an old grey-headed man hanging,
with an Indignant look, at my coat-collar ; and a
host of persons looking On. The old fellow's face
grew redder every minute ; but perceiving he was
observed, he lowered his voice in the detail, while
he lifted it In the worst parts of his colloquy.
You Infernal scoundrel, and caitiff, and villian
says I, 'what do you mean, to insult an elderly per
son like myself, In a public place like this 1 and
then,' said he.lowering his malapropos voice, 'then
I shook him so, '.- '. ,
Here he pushed me to an fro, with his septuage
narian gripe on thy collar, as if instead of a patient
and mach bored friend, 1 was his deadly enemy

Under this head, tiie police reporter of the Phila
delphia Pennsylvanian, sketches a most ludicrous
incident of city life. His account of the affair is
dated Sept. 27th, and is wrought up in the follow
ing capital sty!e :
Darius Vincent, a junior member of the city
night guards, (unlike a majority of his professional
brethren, who spend half their time, while en duty;
in snoozing about on out-door benches or reclining
with their backs against trees or lamp-posts)
Darius Vincent, we say, wh'ue charged with the
care of his fellow-citizens, improves his lime and
cultivates his intellect by reading direful narratives
of murder, rape and robbery, from a book called
tho 'Awful Beacon,' which he always carries in the
pocket of his watch-coat, and pulls out for purpo
ses of study under every gas-light which is suffi
ciently brilliant to make the print visible. Last
night, his customary studies were prosecuted un
der a gas-lamp, at the corner of a certain blind al
ley running from Eighth street. The recital to
which his attention was then directed was an ac
count of a lady, who, having killed her sleeping
husband at midnight, buried the body under the
kitchen hearth, and conveyed the head in a slop
bucket, among potato parings, cabbage leaves, and
other culinary offal, to the dock, casting the mis
cellaneous contents of the pail into the river with
heatless indifference, although the glassy eyes
seemed to glare at her reproachfully, ai the ampu
tated head made its last evolution on the surface of
the water. Just as lie came to this thrilling pas
sage Darius observed from a corner of his eye
that a woman was passing him, and (most Btrange
coincidence !) she had in her hand a bucket. The
imagination of Darius was powerfully excited by
what he had just been reading ; he was ready to
suspect a woman carrying a bucket, of anything
'Where are you going?' said he to the female pe
destrian. 'I am going home,' answered the woman.
'What have you got in that bucket ?' .
'I shan't tell you ; only that it's something I've
just bought at the store.'
'Take off the cloth and let me see it.'
'I'll see you hanged first.'
The dispute became warm and loud ; as it was
only about eleven o'clock, when people are still a-
bout,a small concourse of listeners gathered around
What's the matter, witchmanJ' was thegener-
I suspect this woman's been doing something
wrong ; ('aid Uanui,) "she 1 got something in mat
bucket which she don't want to be seen.'
It's nothing that nobody that's got any sense
need want to see,' said the woman.
'It's the head of her murdered husband,' said Da-
All the hearers were horrified. Darius jerked
off the cloth with a slight of-hand movement; the
spectators crowded around to gaze into the bucket;
roar of laughter followed, in which the woman
herself joined; Darius alone looked disconcerted
We regret that the curiosity of the reader cannot
be fully satisfied. All that we know, at least ail
that we can tell, about the mystery of the bucket,
is that it contained an article of crockery-mare,
which the woman, (as she truly reported,) had just
purchased at a neighboring china-store. The pro
prietress of the bucket, etc., was now permitted to
go on her way, the crowd, uttering sundry scurvy
jests, dispersed, and Darius returned to the persnal
of the 'Awful Beacon. .
When Mary and I were nurried we were young
and foolish.for we had nothing to be married. with,
but Mary was delicate, and I thought I could take
care of her best I knew I had a stout arm and
a brave heart to depend upon. Werentedacham
ber and went to house keeping. We got together .
a little furniture a table, bedstead, dishes but
our money failed us before we bought I he chairs.
I told Mary she must turn up th tub; for I could
not run in debt No, no. It was not long before
our rich neighbor Mrs. M .found us out, and
kindly enough she supplied us : half a dozen chairs
added to our stock. They w;re old ones, to be
sure, but answered just as well for us. I shall
never forget the new face those chairs put on our
snug quarters (hey iiever looked just right before.
The tables are turned with Mrs. M- and me
now she has become a poor widow, but she shall
never want while I have any thing, never.!" cried
theold man, with a beaming face. " I don't for
get those old chairs."
Ah, now the secret was out. It was the tnfer
eslqfihe old chairs which maintained the poor
widow. She was living upon the interest and
compound interest of a little friendly act done fifty
years before, and it sufficed fur herself and daugh
ter. ;-: ;
. How beautiful is it to see how God blesses the
operation of his great moral law, "Love thy neigh
bor ;" and we should oftener see it could we look
into the hidden paths of life, and find that it is
not self-interest, not riches, not fame, that binds
heart to heart. The simple power of a friendly
act can do far more than they. It is these, the
friendly acts, the neighborly kindness, the Chris
tian sympathy of one towards another, which rob.
wealth of its power to curse, extract the bitter
from the cup of sorrow, and open wells of gladness
in desolate homes. We do not always see the ,
golden links shining iu the chain of human e
vents ; but they are there, oh yes, they are there.
and happy is he who feels their gentle but irresis
Thus was I made a martvr ts mr food feelincs,

the Exchange. Willis Geylord Clark.
"I HAVE NO TIME."
Want of time is often used as an excuse by far
mers tor stopping their country paper. 'A poor
excuse is better than none,' and this is unquestion
ably one. When a man has no time to read he
should employ more help or till less land. Thou
sands of our best farmers find time to read not on
ly their country papers, but a city weekly or two,
besides monthly periodicals of literature and agri
culture. We say such men are our best farmers.
They are bo. , An intelligent man cannot be a poor
farmer, because the very knowledge he has acquir
ed from newspapers, periodicals and books, tell him
that one acre well tilled is worth two over grown
with briars and thistles. Just so' with the mind.
The intellect that has been stored with information,
and is ever seeking to acquire more, is worth more
to a neighborhood than ten others whose possessors
think of nothing but satisfying their animal appe
tites in a glass of grog, a hearty dinner, or an af
ternoon nap. A proper amount of animal food and
rest is necessary to preserve and develops the body
so also is a proper amount of intellectual food
neceesarr to t erre and develops the blind. If
the mind does not have h, II becomes stupid from
Inaction, or seeks in vicious thought an activity
otherwise denied It ' How many would have been
saved from crime, and consequent punishment, if a
taste tor reading; h ad been cultivated In their youth.
Idle thoughts are the parent! ot crime, and an un
oceu Died brain is the father of Idle thoughts,- A
newspaper is the cheapest remedy for such an evil.
It Is Lady Montague, we believe whosnyi; 'No
entertainment is so cheap at reading 'nor any so
lastii.g;' and yeV tlioeeande of men deprive them
selves and families of this entertainment on the
falae plea that they are not able 10 afford it, and if
they were, they have no time to indulge in it. Such
men generally find time 10 do a great n any things
they ought not to do, and csn s fiord to buy article
they ought to do without. Erie Obterur.

God evidently designed ber, must make be iiig a
greeable part cf her duty. They need no urging
to look as pretty as they can; nature takes care
of that But nature contents herself with this
lower prompting. She does not always suggest
to us that higher attractivenesss without which
even beauty is shorn of its beams, and which of
ten supplies the place of beauty. If any f o ur
readers have ever seen a foolish old won. in, they
will not need anything further on this point.
Foolish young women we see every day ; their
youth and good looks carry them along in a cer
