YOUTHS' DEPARTMENT.
v GOD ISjEVEBYWHEEE.
we pray, wo are to reihetnber that Gol
: is everywhere present ; and that although thousand
: v of llis children, and tens of thousands may be ad
' dressing Him, He Iijears them all. Our weak voices
- cannot be distinguished at a ; little distance ; 'and
' jnany times, like the mother of little Samuel, our!
, A hearts pray,' wKen our lips do not speak. God,
- who is. everywhere,; hears all who pour out their
hearts, to Him. . This is wonderful, and past our
; 'understanding ; but it is nevertheless true.
'f ; .To such as strive, in the love and fear of God,
j ' 'I to do His will, it is a pleasant, though awful
thought, that He sees all we do, and hears all we
r say; and .that not only so, but lie knows alscfour
thbughts before even we know them.. His eye is
everywhere,' beholding the evil and the good. The
: child. who remembers this great truth is a good
counsellor for the man who dares to forget it. -We
met fiot long sincein our, reading, an anecdote
t winch raav well be repeated in this place. A man
who5 was in the habitiof going to a neighbors corn
. .. field to steal the grain, one day took his son, of
. about eight . years old'with him. 'The father
told him to hold the bag, while he looked on to
watch if any one was near to see him. After
standing on the fence and, peeping through all the
! rows of corn, he returned to take the bag from the
V ' child, and began his 6inful work. " Father," said
the boy, "you forgot to look somewhere else.'1
Which way, child 1" supposing he had seen sqme
ie " You fortrot to look-up to the skv. to see if
one.
God was notiping you." The father felt this reproof
, of the child so much, that he left the corn-field,
afitd returned home, and never again ventured to
eteal ; remembering the truth that he had learned
from the child, that the eye of God always beholds
us. ' . ' ' - " f
Such an occurrence as this may rerhind" the read
er of the saying, of loly Scripture Oat of the
I mouths of babes thbuthast perfected praise." Un
.';' fortunately, too maiij- men, wise in the wisdom of
I this world, are prone io forget God. Some, though
the mind can hardFy realize such wicked foolishness,
; affect to deny that there is a God, Such men mafy

I acknQwledge it There is a beautiful (story from
' the German, which our readers may nt, perhaps,
have seen, and which, we swill here repeat, since it
' . embodies: in a brief pace the great argument, apart
( froV Scripture, for God's existence-which b, that
.Gdd, the Creator, Is seen in all His works., t
" In that beautiful part of Germany," says the
. narrative, " which borders on the Khine, there is a
Boble castle, which, as' "you travel -ofr the western
bank .of the rier,. yOjU may see lifting its aircient
towers on the opposite side, above the grove of trees
about as old as itself. " ,
V" About forty years ago there lived in that castle
a noble genllenian, whom we shall cal Baron .
: X He had only one son, who was not only a" co'tnfort
. to hia -father, but a blessing to all who lived ou his
. father's land. . ' - . .. ..
7 : "It happened on' a certain occasion that this
. young man being from home, there came a French
: jrentleman to set; the castle, who began' to talk' of
his heavenly .Father in terms that chilled the old
man's flood ; on which the Baron Reproved him
saying,. 'Are. you not afraid of offending God, who
;' reigns above, by. speaking in such a manner f
- ' The gentleman said he knew nothing about God,
lot, he had never seen him. . The Baron this time
; lil not notice what the gentleman said, but the
i next morning took him ' about his castle-grounds.
-iind -took occasion first to showhim avery beautiful
' .picture that hung xn the wall. The gentleman
" iulmired the picture very much and said, ' Whoever
; drew this picture, knows very well how to 'use the
pencij.' ; ,
; " '.My sorf 'drew the picture,' said the Baron.
;" 'Then your son is a , clever man ' replied the
eman. . L. .
"The Baron then went with? his visitor into the
I garden, and Showed him many beautiful flowers
. : arid plantations of -forest' trees. . . j
' . " t Who h-as the ordering of this garden V asked
, .- the gentleman. , ' - ' '
" ';My son, replied the Baron ; 'he knows every
plant, I may say," from the cedar of Lebanon to the
s 'byssop on the wall,' ; f 1 . '
" ' Indeed;' said tlie gentleman ; L- shall think
I . vonr ViififTilw rvf lirm nnn 1 ! , ; . !
" The Baron then took him into the village and
, sbowed him.ia ' small, neat cottage, where nis son
. had established a school, and where he caused all
. ydung children who had lost their parents to be
."received and nourished at his own expense. The
children in the house looked so innocent and so
happy, that the gentleman was very-much pleased,
. and when ; he returned to the- castle he said v'to the
Baron," '' Wliat a happy man you " are to have so
vgood"a son !'.' ; ' "
"' How do you know I have so good a son,?'
i .";' - Beca"use'I ' have' seen his works, and I know
' 'that he must be good and clever, if he has done all
that 'ybu have showed me,'
; - y " ' But you have not seen him.' ! '
'.' ' ? No, but t know him very well, because I Judge
; of him by his works.' j;
f Ui. True,' replied the Baron ;and in this way I
jujge of the character of bur heavenly Father. I
, -know by bis works that he is ; a being of infinite
'- wisdom, affd power, and goodness.' "
'. . The scoffer was silenced. He had jabswered-his
own ' "wickedness and folly by his own wVds, .and
" could say no more. It is not the w'isest who scoff
' - at rehgion and piety ; for true wisdom begins in the
fear, of the Lord. And gratitude presses us tb love
v o good & being, and to be heedful of all the means
'..which" He has appointed, by winch we may learn
His will,- and obey His commandments. Foremost
among these, are the reading of His Word, and the
duty of prayer By the first we learn our duty,-and
r by tlie second are assisted to do it Nor should we
ever profane or misimprdve the Christian Sabbath.
There are many perverse thoughts and temptations
I which j ould?way us to error, r neglitrence in this
respect : but there is a ery bUT rhyme, -which is
worthyj of being committed to memorttes a check
"'.upon tlie desire to: neglect our religious duties j It
' . "A Sabbath well spent
f Brings a week, of content;
And health for the toils of tojnorrow ;
But a Sabbath profaned, l
Whatsoe'er may be gained, -'.!
Is a certain forerunner ol sorrow." j .
This is a ditty very simple in its "language ; and
it is as true as it is easily understood. It was writ
ten two hundred years ago,and by a very distinguish
ed person, s Sir Mitthew Hale. Sir Matthew) was ia
judge in 'England, and made many decisions iin I
cases which came before him, which are frequently
jeferred to even, now by o'ur lawyers and judges;
but he never made a decision embodying more truje
wisdom than is contained in those lines. He was
so studious that it is related of him that he studied
sixteen hours out of the twenty-four ; and his Sun
day's repose and the calmness of his devotion gave
hiin strength for the great' labors' which he accom
plished. . Let us all then,4while we remember that
Goa is everywhere, and that His wisdom is sfeen in
His wprksr acknowledge- and obey the wisdom
which made the Sabbath, for man, and blessed the ,
seventh day, and hallowed it. Mentor. -
v ANECDOTE OF A SNOW-BIRD.
We did not know, until the other day, that the
lJttle ehick-a-de-de,j whose song we have tried to
tfaiiblate, was such an affectionate creature. There
k a little book, published in England, called " Early
Days," which tells" a story about a pair of these
birds ; and. since reading the story we have loved
this winter warbler more than ever as we are sure
ourreaders will doj , when they are made acquaint
ea with tne story which .we intend to tell tuem.
Ihis little bird,-' -it seeins, is knownln Ireland by the
name-of blue-bonnet. Its food consists of grain and
insects, especially the latter, in 'search of which
it may be seen hopping from branch to branch, ill
every position, sometinies with its head downward.
On a cold day, m the month of 'March last sq
says the book before mentioned ne of these birds
hopped into the house of a friend . of mine, near
Belfast, and commenced pieking crumbs about the J
J3 '1,11 1 . i l
jioor ana laoies, wnen alter remaining tor several .
hours, it took its leave. -Next day it returned, and
alighted on the top of a cage, where it seemed to
form an acquaintance with a goldfinch. The cage,
door was opened, and the blue-bonnet went in, and
remained all day picking seeds with the goldfinch;
At jnight the strange prisoner w;as released ; but as
it showed no disposition to leave the house, it was
allowed to remain in the parlor. ' J3ut the next
mosuing, while the servant was opening the window-
shutter, the room being quite dark, she unconciously-
set her toot on the poor; bird and killed, it It was.
afterwards thrown out, and its untimely death soon!
forgotten.'
But during the course of the ay, the attention
of some one was drawn to au affecting scene out-;
side, before the parjor windows. " The mate of the-blue-bonnet
wras standing beside it, mourning its;
loss in plaintive tones. . It then stretched out its. '
neck, and putting its beak below the head of its
companion, raised it up, and then sang as before.;'
Afterwards it attempted .to remove the body, but was
unable, ; At length it flew away, and after some
time returned, carrying a gkain of corn, which it,
dropped before its dead partner. Then it fluttered:
I with its wkigs, making an effort to be joyful, ., and-:
endeavored to cqg the attention qf t)ie dead bird to !
the corn. Finding this useless also, it again flew f
Away, and returned with another grain, which it '
deposited in the same manner. It then lifted the
grain, and dropped it ,upon I its mate's beak, con-;
tinuing to do this for several minutesi ' Then it re- j
suiued its plaintive"; notes,; but the sight was too j
affecting, arid a person was-sent out to remove the
dead bird. ; J ' .
, -." At that moment," said a spectator, " I would :
have given any thing in my possession to have !
sQen the poor blue-bonnet restored to life." '
A lady, on a cold morning, seeing all the win
dows and. blinds of a wealthy bachelor's room
thrown wide open, enquired .the reason of it.
'f'Oh," said he, " it's merely to . let in mf only sun
and air.
To yield to the passions is to give up the strug- f
gle and to acknowledge ourselves better ; but to
contend to" the last is to earn the .reward of the
faithful. ' -: . '- j
The first Bloomer, Punch thinks",- was Joan of '
Arc, who wore a short tunic1 with tights, and was
otherwise clad in mail attire.

PROSPECTUS OF THE
North Carolina University Magazine.
THE Students of the University of North Carolina, having
deliberated in a body on the Expediency of establishing a
literary organ, and well convinced of the mental and perhaps
mural benefit which may result therefrom, have resolved to
execute their design., They take this appropriate means of
lnlorming the public. JNo legitimate, department ol literature
will be excluded from the Magazine, and it is presumed none
will be held objectionable, provided the article be thoroughly
winnowed of the chaff of improprieties!. Every effort will be
exerted to interest its readers with oqginalty, and enlighten
with valuable information. We do jnot indeed expect to
E reduce aught 'which the World will not willing let die;'
ut as we are aiding iu the purpose which has placed us at
College, on this account we may justly expect encouragement.
To those who take an interest in us personally, and to those
who' sympathise to any degree ;in the) ends which prompt us,
we appeal unceremoniously and with Aure hopes ot success.
The Lditorial Corps will always consist of sixmembers of
the Senior Class." The Magazine will be issjed monthly,
(excepting January and July) from the press of ff . D. Cooke,
Raleigh, N. C. To him also all subscriptions and business
ctrmmunications must be addressed, (post paid.)
The first Number will be issued 1st February 1852. Terms

PROSPECTUS
OF THE t j
"WEEKL.Y POST."
THE "Deaf Mute" having closed ifs second volume, has
been succeeded by a larger and more valuable paper hav
ing the above title. 'If
There is evidently -an opening in Nrth Carolina for this
new enterprise ; but while saying this, the undersigned wishes
it it be distinctly understood, that he doas not entertain hopes
ot Establishing a paper that will rival. o supplant the literary
papers issued-from the large eominerciajl Cities such expec
tations, when entertained in the country, and ia towns that
may be called provincial, are based on an imperfect "knowl
adsre of the course of human atlkirs, and the failure of all
iueh undertakings teaches a practical lesson not to be over
looked. . ' I
But we should not. we cannot, we must not get all our
literature from abroad : if we do, we miist inevitably become

pride ; will have a very imperlect knowledge of xur wants
and interests, and knowing nothing of imrselves, of the ad--vantages
of our own country, and of ii$ moral and physical
resources, be strangers to the purest and sweetest of all
earthly enjoyments, and the slaves, of foreign opinions and
habits. i 1 ;
The North Carolinians have hearts that yearn or an ofand
of attachment ; and in their Su:e are objects worthv -'t thf
i aiicctions. iney nave minus active, enlightened, vi -. ijub
minds that need a medium through whiich to manilest than
selves to each other 'and to the world and' they have souls
imbued with poeti!c sentiment, but whose inspirations are
smothered at the source, or offered, at foreign shrines. This
state ot things must not continue ; it is a question of self
preservatiorf. ' . ' i ;
We need more vehicles for the transmission land circulation
of. the ideas of those who think more temples for the offer
ings of the sons and daughters of genius4-more exponents of
me puoiic ncan ana mina, ana more aciienaers ot our social
and literary rights. In a word, for the want of proper chan
nels there is not a sufficient commerce of thoughts and feel
ings amongst us ; and as a i consequence, the intellect of the
State is underrated abroad, and nas not its due weight at
nome wmie tnat tervent iNortn-aronna heart, whose out
pourings 'might consecrate everv locality in Hhe State, and
enaear our dwelling places by the embellishments and faci
nations 61 fancy and sentiment, is left to J
" Waste its sweetness on the desert air."
Another evil attending this want of home literary journals,
is tne literary imposition unaer wnicn our people suiter, it
is a fact worthy of being universally knovn, that North Car
olina is considered bv book-makers the best mart in the world
for uncurrent and trashy productions ; anji the very refuse of
literary quacKery is sent oui nere,. ana circuiatea among our
peopie. c or most oi me woms oi tnis sort, m orthern publish
ers nave agencies all over North Carolina, and thus while
there are none to circulate our own books! and the oeoDle are
kept in ignorance of their own history, aiid of the character
ana resources ot their btate, they are drqgged with foreign
uarconcB, auu ueaviiv taxeu lorme oenent oiiaDncs tnat win
not sell and cannot be sold where thevlar manufactured.
These are the reasons which induce the Publisher and Editor
to undertake the " Weekly Post and ifor these very rea-
sons meir penoaicai win enter tne neia not as the rival, but
as the friend and supporter of all similar publications in the
State. It does not aspire to the position f the Literary or
gan of the State ; and its conductors believe, that where there
is but one organ, even that cannot flourish j
The "Weekly Post" will, therefore, ibhald as essential
to its own existence, all the other literary papers and maga
zines in the State, and will consider itself not as the sole
intellectual organ of North Carolina, but as an additional
public highway for thought a new facility for the increasing
wantSi of our mental commerce. It will be! the special friend
of all works of. internal improvements ; of all schools and col
leges,' and of each and all the industrial interests of North
Carolina, in a word, it will be the friend of everv trn North-
Carolinian, and devoted to his honest interests as a man and
as a citizen- ot this land ot steady habits.
It will be published by the undersigned, and chieflv edited
bv Ci H. Wiley. Esq.. through whose exertinns iti tmAtk
wilr be furnished with interesting and original statistics of

ana original articles, statistical and fanciful, from the pens of
NorthTCarolinians. .
The proprietors do not expect to realize ilarare nmfit
their undertaking ; but they anticipate a liberal support and
will labor to deserve it. .
With this hope the " Weekly Post " is iow issued ; and
'its publication will be continued for one yeir, even if it prdVe
a loss tt its proprietors. This result, however, they are not
prepared to anticipate ; and to show their confidence in the

BLAKE'S FIRE AND WATERPROOF PAINT.
SOME idea may be formed of the usefulness of this truly
wonderful Paint, and the extent to which it is used, from
the fact, that within a few months past, I have sold upwards
of 5,000 pounds, and have this day ordered 15,000 pounds
more. It has given entire satisfaction, and all who have
houses to paint, will consult their interest by using it. It is
the cheapest and mostdurable paint ever used. lTiave Col
lin's Patent Refined Paint Oil, which is used for mixing with
the paint at less than halt the price of Linseed oil, and just as
good. The paint and oil, I am prepared to sell at New-York
