Hut lo iliu giiild hearted youth who i,
thrown upon the rocks of n pililiss city,
and 'Stands homeless amid thousand
homes," the approach of evening bring
with it an aching sense of loneliness and

Smr Building. During ISofl, the busi.
ness of shipbuilding has reached the low.
est point within a period of about ten
years, and compared with 1S5-1 has fallen
off one half. There hui been a disposition
lo construct ship of nioderato tize ; clip
per are out of date ; p rope Mors aro more
in demand. The attention of ship build
ers is Leins turned to the expediency of
building vessel of iron. It is staled lb
in England iron ship can be built for 1 15
less per ton than timber enos, and that
with the same outside measurment an iron
hlpof 1,800 ton burden, will carry 300
ton more than a limber vessel. During
the year, the ship builder of New Yoik
and vicinity have been employed upon 73
vessels, COof which have been launched,
and 11 ro Hill on the stocks. The t"n
nnge of these ves-els amount to 60,322
tons; lltul of 18o5 was 53,773 ; of 1654,
07,553; of 1833, 105,829 ; of 1852,70,
W is r Words. Hon. J nine Buchanan,
President el ct of the United States, in a
recent addrena to the student of Franklin
and Marshall Collego, Penn., warned them
very atrongly against forming the habit of
using Intoxicating liquors, declaring that
it would be better for that youth who con
tracted an appetite for strong drink that he
wore dead, or had never been born. When
he saw a young man entering upon such
a career, a fondness for liquor becoming
with him a governing passion, he could see
nothing before him but a life of sorrow,
and a dishonored grave in his old og.
lion. Thomas II. Denton, long a ditin
guMicd Senator from Missouri, in a recent
Ircturo before the Mechanics' Apprentices'
Association of Boston, advised them to ab
stain rigidly from tho une of spirituous or
fermented liquors, and to lead lives of so
briny and temperance. lio ascribed much
of his success in lifo, his vigorous constilu
lion, and his exemption from the infirm
ities of ago, though ho had passed the limit
which the Psalmist assigned to the line of
ifc, to the fact that he had not only thus
abstained, but bad kept free from every
kind of dissipation, saying that he bad
never spent a night In cntousing, and could
uot tell one card from another.
Entomology. Professor Agassiz says
that more than a lifotimo would be neces
snry to enumerate the various species of
insects and describe their appearance. Moi
gor, a German, collected and described 000
specie of flies, which he collected in a dis
trict of ten miles circumference. Tliero
have been collected, in Europe, 20,000
pecics of intects preying on wheat. In
licilin two professors are engaged collect
ing, observing, nnd describing insects and
thoir habits, and already liavo they pub
lished five large volumes upon the insects
which attack forest trees.

A "Mean" Editor. The editor of a
western paper having lent his ax to one of
his subscribers, ihc borrower unfortunately
broke off tho handle. On returning it, be
said: "Von can easily get it fixed."
"Yes," replied tho editor, "but that will
cost at least a quarter of a dollar 1"
.."Well," rejoined the borrower, ''If you
ain't rather small for an editor. Here's tho

paper at once.
