Why shouldn't we then celebrate, and this - day ne'er forget ? -' Where is there any freedom like being out of debt? . I've riz up many mornings, an hour - before the sun, And night has overtaken me before-the task was done ; When weary with my labor 'twas this thought that nerved ory arm Bach day of toil will help to pay the mortgage on the farm. . ' And, Mary, you have done your part in rovvin' to the shore, By taking eggs and butter to the little vil lage store ; You did not spend the money in dressing up for show, ".. 'f. 'But sang from morn till evening in your faded calico. And Bessie, our sweet daughter God bless her loving heart, The lad that gets her for a wife must be . by nature smart . She's gone without a piano, her lonely - ., hours to charm, . . To have a hand in payin' off the mort gage on the farm. 1 I'll build a little cottage to make your heart rejoice ; I'll buy a good piano, to go with Betsy'3 voice ; You shall not make your butter with that up and. down concern, For I'll go this very day and buy the finest patent churn. r- - Lay by your faded calico, and go with me to town, And get yourself and Bessie a new and shining gown ; , Low prices for produce need not give us " ". now alarm ; - . "" Spruce up, my little Mary,there's no mort gage on the farm. While' our hearts are now so joyful, let us, Mary, not forget To thank the God of ileaven for being out of debt; - - -- . - .

A Dastardly Trick. ' A retired clergyman sends ns an ac count of a little affair that happened in his place. It appears that there was a young woman, a fine spirited girl, engaged at a , wash tub, oppo site an open door.- Just behind her was a young man, as is generally the case, and in the yard was an old buck that was allowed the freedom of the premises, which is not always the case, we are glad to say. Well, this buck came up and looked in, and the young man going close behind the young wo man, pointed nis linger straight at the buck, and the old fellow recognizing at once the pressing character of this mate invitation put down his head and dash ed forward, and the miserable man step ped one side and fled,, and the young wo man, all unconscious ot . the arrange ment, received the awful shock without warning, and passed over the tub. and the air . for . an instant appeared to be full of slippers, and wet clothes, and soap and hot water, and suds. And the next minute that goat came flying out of that door at a dreadful speed bald the whole length of his Spine, and with a wild look in his eye. And for an hour afterward ho stood back of the barn, scratching his chin, and trying to recall all the circumstances in the un fortunate affair. Air Editor, says somebody who evi dently knows, is a man who lives, on what other people owe him until be starves to death. A subscriber is one who takes a paper and Bays he is well pleased with it, and he tells erverybody else 'he ought to subscribe.' After he has subscribed about seven years, .the editor writes to him and asks him to let him have $2 50 (two dollars and fifty cents) and then the subscriber writes back to the editor and tells him not to send his old paper any more, for ..there is nothing in it, and then the poor editor goes and starves to death some more. . Death is the Chignoit. Ladies who consider their toilet unfinished without a chignon will dread to hear that the hair of patients dying With small-pox in Eastern cities is cut off and sold to barbers and hair-dressers. - - It is a noto rious fact that much of the "glory of woman " is scissored from literally dead heads, but it had never before occurred to us that any one would be so crim inally, so atrociously indifferent to the public welfare as to barter hair from pestilential heads.
