In the deep woods of Mexico,
Where screams the 'painted paroquet,'
And mocking birds flit to and fro,
With borrowed notes they half forget;
Where brilliant flowers and poisonous vines
Are mingled in a firm embrace,
And the same gaudy plant entwines
Some reptile of a poisonous race ;
Where spreads the Ito icy shade
Benumbing even in summer's heat
The thoughtless traveler who hath laid
Ilimsclfto noondav slumbers sweet:
Where skulks unseen the beast of prey
The native robber glares and hides,
And treacherous death keeps watch alway
On him who flies, or he who bides.
In these deep tropic woods there grows
A tree, whose tall and silvery bole
Above the dusky forest shows,
As shiniug as a saintly soul
Among the souls of sinful men ;
Lifting its milk-white flowers to heaven,
And breathing incense out, as when
The passing saints of earth are shriven.
The skulking robber drops Lis eyes,
And signs himself with holy cross,
If, far between him and the skies,
He sees its pearly blossoms toss.
The wanderer halts to gaze upon
The lonely vision, far or neir,
And smiles and sighs to think of one
He wishes for the moment here.
The Mexic native fears not fang
Of psonous serpent, vine, nor bee,
If he may soothe the baleful pang
With juices of this "holy tree."
How do we all, in life's wild ways,
Which oft we traverse lost and lone,
Need that which heavenward draws the gaze
Some I'alo Santo of our own 1

A Judge rx a " Fix." An awkward af
fair, -which once occurred to one of the
judges on the Western Circuit, has been
the subject of such mirth. It appears that
the pious judicial, having finished his la
bors, and having cast of Lis forensic wig
at his lodgings, had retired into the next
room to wait for his brother judge, whom
he was about to accompany to some of the
local aristocracy to dinner. The female
servant of the house had entered the bed
chamber br a side door, and not knowing
the judge w-as in thtTv-ext room, in a frolic
arrayed herself in the judge's wig. Just
the moment when the fair Mopsy was ad
miring herself in the looking-glass, the
judge unexpectedly entered the room ;
and poor Mospy catching a sight , of the
stern countenance looking over her shoul
der in the glass, was so alarmed that she
fainted and would have fallen to the
tloor, if the learned judge, impelled by
humanity, had not caught her in his
arms. At this critical moment his brother
judge arrived, and opening the dressing
room door, with a view to see if he was
ready, discovered his learned brother with
the fainting maid in his arms. Nqit wish
ing to interrupt what lie thought to be an
amour, he quickly attempted to withdraw,
when his brother judge vociferated, " For
heaven's sake, stop and hear this matter
explained.-' Never mind, my dear
brother; the matter explains itself" and
he left his brother to recover the fainting
maid as best he could. Anecdotes of the

With regard to the control of children,
there can be no rule by which all can be
governed alike. Health, temperament,
disposition, each affect the behavior of the
child, and should be considered in its
management. Children of excitable tem
perament (and this is now by far the larg
est class), require greater wisdom in their
training than others. Their over-active
minds and delicate bodies, s are truly a
serious care to those who have the rearing
of them. Example h the best of teachers,
as the infant is purely imitative in its na
ture : and here, let me impress it upon par
ents, that faults of their own are reflected
in their offspring, and although it may be
necessary to punish those faults, the neces
sity might be avoided by a proper self
control in the majority of cases. Qualities
go by inheritance it is true ; but many
more are gamedy household education.
If you wish to have sons and daughters
excellent in every characteristic, exhibit
that excellence in your own conduej; daily.
Children are very apt to look upon their
parents as perfection in all things, and
woe to that parent who discovers to the
little confiding mind so palpable a deform
ity, as to be perceived by it. There can
be no greater humiliation on one side, or
grief and disappointment on the other. If
you have forbidden a child to do affi ac
tion, no matter how insignificant, be care
ful that it does not find yon doing the same
thing, and thereby have its sense of justice
outraged, except, of course, in such cases
as where the reason of the difference can
be explained.
The writer was once teaching a little
fellow to feed himself at table. Childlike,
he put in his food as fast as he could, and
in very large mouthfuls. I took great
pains to show him the proper size of a
mouthful, suclyis he should take, using
the expression do not stuff your mouth."
Happening to have him at table with my
self one day, not long afterwards, I was;
surprised to see him watching me with an
expression of outraged confidence on his
babv face, and laving down mv knife and
fork, I smiled and asked him what was the
matter. " Ee stuff eemouf!" replied the
little fellow in so grieved a voice that I
could not refrain from laughing ; for I in
stantly comprehended that he had been
comparing the size of my mouthfuls with
those I had instructed him to take. So
soon do children begin to criticise and
Be careful about showing irritation of
temper, for there is no habit so catching.
If the-mother of a family is a scold, or
fault-finder, ten chances to onv if every
child she has does not turn out a scold and
fault-tinder ; not only making themselves
miserable, but sending out ever-widening
circles of misery into the families they
shall raise, and they after them. Women
have a good excuse for irritability in their
sensitive organization, and strength so
often over-taxed ; but when the injury
done by indulgence is so great, it is worth
while to try the length of yonr endurance.
Beware of making uncharitable remarks
about your friends or neighbors in the
presence of children. It is peculiarity
of these little folks to like gossip about
their elders, and I have seen children sit
hours in the house to listen to the conver
sation of their parents and neighbors when
it was of a personal character, who would
otherwise have been happily at play. The
effect of such conversations on their inex
perienced minds is to give them very in
correct and unhappy notions of persons
and things, and an anecdote treasured up
in this way has often been of great injury,
not only to the child who judged wrongly,
but through the child to others wkGiH it
influenced, as well as the person judged.
Do not sutler a child to be made afraid
of anything. Feal'is not only undignified,
but a source of the greatest discomfort to
the possessor ; and do not teach children
to doubt your word hy promising them
anything which you do not perform,
whether it be a favor or a punishment.
Tlieir minds are not so occupied with busi
ness that they forget it, whatever it may
be. They are, on the contrary, expecting
you to keep your word, unless you show
them by your conduct that you make
promises without intending to keep them ;
thereby learning them to place no confi
dence in what you say, and teaching them
a lesson of equal untruthfulness. Neither,
w hen you command a child, use a great
many words, but remember to speak
pleasantly though firmly, as if you did not
doubt its instant obedience. Such a man
ner will yearly always insure obedience ;
but if, for some peculiar reason, it fails,
insist upon being obeyed promptly, in the
same calm, kind, and firm manner. Al
mdlt the whole secret of seettrisg the re
spect and cheerful obedience of children
lies in that one neglect of .parents, arising
from carelessness. They imagine it easier
to have an occasional battle with a child
to subdue its temper when it has got be
yond the bounds of reasonable endurance,
than every day, and all the time to require
just the same respect of authority, which
in time becomes a habit, and the child is
insensible to any restraint, and of course
happier than when half the time indulged
and half the time restricted in proportion.
Let no mother forget that she is respon
sible for the happiness of the children she
brings into the world. Let her endeavor
to cultivate- in them such temne-rr-. motives.
habits, and principles as shall secure that
happiness, not only by making them be
loved and respected by others, but peace
ful and contented within themselves.
To preserve their health is the first duty,
and after that to teach them usefulness,
virtue, self-respect, and cheerfulness. The
latter is of much greater value than most
parents perceive. A cheerful, self-reliant
disposition is a greater gift than a fortune,
and it is never too early to begin to incul
cate it in the infant mind. Do not allow a
child to dwell upon a hurt or grievance of
any kind, but by lively, hopeful, or play
ful remark teach it to regard the accident
as of no serious importance. A child will
frequently laugh instead of crying, if, in
stead of making a great ado over some
little bump it has received, you affect to
pity the floor, or the table, or whatever it
has come into collision with. Its mirthful
ness is excited by the ludicrousness of the
idea, which it quickly perceives, and the
trouble is forgotten. Never forget the
real good of the child in the pleasure you
yourself experience in lavishing pity and
tenderness upon it : but mix up with these
endearments wholesome lessons of patience
and content, or, if need be, of endurance.
Let no mother trust the education of
her children entirely to others, if possibly
she can avoid it. If she feels disqualified
for teaching by any deficiencies of her own
education, she ought, by all means, to use
what leisure she may have in qualifying
herself in those branches which her child
ren are pursuing. This, perhaps, is equally
the duty of both parents : for children are
always far more deeply interested in that
which seems to interest their parents, than
in other sibjects. But if it is important
to show a sympathy in the jjursuit of the
earlier elementary branches, in order to
fix their attention sufficiently upon them,
it is even more important when the pupil
becomes farther advanced to be able not
only to assist your children in their studies,
but to be competent to judge of the pro
priety of the course of instruction they
, are following, as well as of the merits of
authors, and the perfection of theories.
Those children who are handed over to
teachers, no matter how able, who have
no special sympathy with their pupils, al
most invariably learn by rote, instead of
having that thorough understanding of
their subjects which familiar instruction
and conversation imparts to the confiding,
youthful mind. It frequently happens in
this way that a very expensive and appa
rently thorough education is nearly lost
upon a son or daughter, who, after going
through all the text books, and having all
the usual masters, turns out a dull and
really ignorant person ; the fault having
been that no one ever engaged his or her
attention by sympathy- the most sure
and universal mode of instructing suc
cess full v.
Teach your children to inquire into
causes w hen they see effects, instead of al
lowing them to take up with any absurd
or superstitious explanations which may
have descended through generations of
uneducated and credulous persons. There
is no training of the human mind more
ennobling than that which comes by a close
observance of. and inquiry into the mys
teries of Nature. If you are able to in
struct your child in these mysteries to
teach him the exquisite and harmonious
relations of things to explore Avith him
the intricate but delightful paths of science,
and to make of him a chemist, botanist,
geologist, or naturalist, or to explore with
him the great and wonderful truths of as
tronomy, you give him one of the most
surest means of happiness as well as of
usefulness ; and you make of him the no
blest of whatever he is capable of being.
Admitting that you are not able to go far
with him in these pursuits ; only then go
as far as you can. and give him a taste for
the stud- or studies.
This course, too, "will develop not only
his highest morality, but will show to you
and to him the peculiar bent of his mind,
for he will be sure to have a preference for
some one thing over another, and thereby
you can decide upon his future profession.
Supposing that he does not find his pecul
iar talent in the natural sciences, the ac
quisition of this knowledge is a help to
him in the attainment of any other kind of
knowledge. Try him then on mathematics
and mechanics, or on logic. During all
this exploring, you will be deeply delight
ed, and your child led insensibly to an un
derstanding of and confidence in his own
powers in some particular sphere of ac
tion. In doing this for him or her, you
renew your own youth and experience
over again it) the enthusiasm of school-days
ad student-life.
After thus becoming acquainted with
the capacities of your children, by joining
in their studies, and having perfected their
knowledge by furnishing them the best
books on their favorite subject, decide for
them, or with them, upon a profession.
Every child, male or female, should have
a profession, trade, or handicraft of
some sort The origin of loaferism is
the want of this, in nine cases out of
ten. The want of this among women re
sults still more deplorably. How, let me
ask any kind father and tender mother,
can you reconcile yourself to the righteous
ness of bringing children into the world
to turn them off, as soon as they arrive at
the estate of men and women, to depend
upon mere chance ? There is no doubt as
to the tiukindness, not to say, wickedness
of such a desertion of your duties. Hith
erto your child has depended uroii von
for every thing maintenance, instruction,
sympathy and, all at once, either by be
coming of a proper age, orbyr your death,
he or she is cast upon his or her inexperi
ence to contend not for bread only, but
for position, consequence, character, every
thing desirable, unarmed with a knowl
edge of any occupation that could secure
the one, ant"" too timid and desparing to
know how to make sure of the other.
For the sins, suffering, and shame which
too frequently falls to the lot of these
weaponless ones set in the front rank of
the battle of life, not themselves, but their
parents are too often responsible. Be
cause, a son has come to maturity physi
cally, is no reason he should be consider
ed a man, unless you have so formed his
mind that he is ready to take upon him
self a man's duties. Through all kinds of
errors will he struggle, and if he fall not,
it will be by virtue of an inherent manli
ness that may defy temptation and trial of
any kind ; and even by his success you do
not stand acquitted of neglec0
Your daughters you are training up for
what ? To get married ? But they may
be unfortunate in marriage, or death may
deprive them of protection and support.
What then ? They are ignorant, helpless,
and despairing. To keep a cheap boarding-house,
to wash gentlemen's shirts, to
sew for a few cents a day, to drudge at
the most menial and unprofitable employ
ments, unable to educate or even comfort
ably clothe their children this is the fate
awaiting them in case of any accident to
their prosperity. Let me consul and en
treat you to do what you can to prevent it.
Educate your daughters not only in books
and every accomplishment you can afford,
but also in some one particular branch of
industry which would afford a mainte
nance if necessary, and in that one branch
see that they excel. It is true that men
have hitherto jealously guarded the ave
nues of trade from the encroachments of
your sex ; but when you have become
really fitted to compete with them in the
knowledge of and capacity for any busi
ness within your desires, it will be in vain
for them to resist you. The time is corn
ing when women may be truly independ
ent, hi the way perfectly compatible with
delicacy and feminine dignity.
In these few hints which I have given
concerning the treatment of children from
infancy to maturity, I have arrived at con
densing instruction into a small space, be
lieving that if you value my suggestions
the subject will continue in your minds,
and you will elaborate it in your own
thoughts. And let me here again remind
you of the importance of physiological
knowledge, as well for yourselves as your
children. It is imperative upon you, that
before you assume the responsibilities of
motherhood you should know witl what
a terrible and wonderful, as well as beau
tiful, being you are gifting your offspring.
Gather about you the best authors on
Physiology and Medicine, and by an un
derstanding of the first, endeavor to avoid
the necessity of the latter. And now go
over these imperfect suggestions from first
to last, and begin to think upon the sub
ject. Follow7 up thinking with reading,
and reading again with thinking ; and as
fast as your daughters are old enough,
teach them what you have learned, and
council them to continue the study.
Neither excuse your sons ; but bo especi
ally faithful with your daughters, for with
them rests the welfare of future genera
tions. Sardines. The
fishes biled in fey
lovers of the "little
should know that the
fish which furnishes them with such a deli
cious repast belongs to the herring family.
The popular name Avas given to it by Cuv
ier, who was the first to assign it to a dis
tinct place in the finny tribe. He called
it Sardinia, from which it is known as the
sardine. Sardines are caught principally
along the coasts of Brittany and, to a less
extent, in Portugal. The fisheries employ
a large number of men and women. The
fishing vessels of eight cr ten tuns each,
and carrying a crew of from six to ten go
out two or three leagues from the land,
and watch for shoals offish. When they
see them, they spread, their gill-nets for
them, and scatter on the water the bait that
has been prepared, and which consists of
the eggs and flesh offish; especially of cod
and mackerel, and sometimes of salted
fish. Large quantities of sardines arc
taken in this way. Some are salted on
board and others are carried on shore, and
either gid fresh or prepared for shipment.
For the latter purpose, they are salted and
packed away in tin cans, vnth melted but
ter and olive oil, which is poured upon;
them in almost a boiling state. The cans
are sealed up to prevent the air reaching
the fish, and are then ready for shipment.
A clergyman of a country village desir
ed his clerk to give notice that there
would be no service in the afternoon, as
he wjis "going to officiate for another
clergymen." The clerk, as soon as the
sermon was ended, rose up, with all due
solemnity and called out : " I am desired
to give notice, that there will be no ser
vice this afternoon, as Mr. L. is going a
fishing with another clergyman." Mr. L.,
of course, corrected tho awkward, yet
amusing blunder.
