lie Gentle, Forgiving and Ki.nl.
Oh ! why are we always so ready
To hear what another may say,
To canvass the faults of a neighbor,
Forgetting our own. by the way?
We know not the heart that we censure ;
Be gentle, forgiving and kind
One drop from the fountain of pity
A wound that is bleeding may bind.
A word, like an angel of mercy
The sunshine of gladness may hear;
May cheer a lone spirit forsaken,
Or add to the weight of its care,
A word ! do we think of its import?
Though uttered perhaps with a smile
A heart may be writhing beneath it.
Or breaking with anguish the while.
A word that in coIuupss is spoken
May sever the friendship of years,
The flowers of feeling may wither,
And leave them in sorrow aiid tears.
Then why should we always be ready
To hear what another may say,
To canvass the faults of a brother,
Forgetting our own by the way?
Noble Sentiment. " This is an agreea
ble world, after all. If we would only
bring ourselves to look at the objects that
suiTOund U3 in their true light, we should
see beauty where before we behell de
formity, listen to harmony where before
we could hear nothing but discord. To
be sure, there is a great deal of anxiety
and vexation to meet ; we cannot expect
to sail upon a summer sea forever 5 yet if
we preserve a calm eye and steady hand.
we can so trim our sails and manage our
helm as to avoid the quicksands, and
weather the storms that threaten ship
wreck. " We are members of one great family :
we are all traveling the same road, and
shall arrive at the saiua goal. We breathe
the free air, we are subject to the same
bounty, and we shall lie down on the bo
som of our common mother. It is not be
coming then, that brother should hate
brother ; it is not proper that friend should
deceive friend ; it is not right that neigh
bor should injure neighbor.
" We pity that man who can harbor en
mity against his fellow, lie loses half
the enjoyment of life ; be embitters his
own existence. Let us tear from our eves
the colored medium that invests every ob
ject with the green hue of jealousy and
suspicion ; turn a deaf ear to the tale of
scandal ; brearhe the spirit of charity from
our lips ; and from our hearts let the rich
giishings of human kindness swell up as
from a fountain, so the ' golden

ArruF.ctATiNG Humor. A humorous lec

his agent on a couple of days in advance,
to smooth his way. On his arrival, the
lecturer found the agent most thoroughly
Bourbonized. Whether or not there is a
" Bourbon among us," he had certainly
been among a good deal of Bourbon. The
following dialogue ensued between lec

Lecturer "What are the prospects?"
.Agent " Splen'id prospects."

A Yeau?3 Tiiocbi.e. Sometimes I com
pare the troubles we have to undergo in
the course of a year to a great bundle of
fagots far too large for us to lift. But
God does not require us to carry the whole
at once. lie mercifully unties the bundles
and gives us first one stick which we are
able to carry to-day, and then another,
which we are able to carry to-morrow,
and so on. This we might easily manage
if we would only take the burden appoint
ed for us each dav. but we choose to in
crease our troubles over again to-day, and

After a few moments of silence his noble

Etliics of Svumliing.
Rascality seems to be the only perennial
thin in ihe world. Virtue has its ups and
downs : disappears for a season, and then,
at the universal call of mankind, is gener
ous and forgiving enough to come back
again ; truth and justice are resorted to by
distracted and despairing society, as the
passengers of a foundered ship betake
themselves to life-preservers ; but there
is no question about it half mankind love
to cheat, and the other half find an equal
though evanescent satisfaction in being
cheated. It isn't our infantile confidence
in each other which is so sad ; the mourn
ful matter is our fatal confidence in our
selves our over-estimate of the profundi
ty of our own perceptions ; our belief that
Mercury himself could not cokii us.
While ve think we stand, we stumble :
while we feel armed at all points against
fraud, we are continently reduced to a
stale of roast-pigeon brownness : a3 every
man must eat his peck of refuse, so every
man must expect to have some other man
come it over him" in that one fatal sec
ond when he is oil his guard. How should
it be otherwise when all the power and
dignity and grandeur of Government itself
cannot save it from voracious sharpers,
and there is a, howl in all the public of
fices over "whiskey frauds'" with the con
comitants of private stills, mendacious
brands, unfaithful inspectors, and liquor
fatal to the bowels of the toughest drink
er ; frauds upon the income-tax, by which
some wicked person undervalues bis re
sources, and for the truth of his lying
statement appeals to his Creator until he
is sable of countenance : and the fine old
venerable Custom-House frauds backed up
by antique and staple perjuries? Bui; all
this seems to be dull aud stale in compari
son with the brilliant exploits of the Jere
my Diddlers of private life, like this gen
tleman, for instance, of whom we are
about to speak, who lately reduced to a
state of disconsolate discouragement, the

or majors, or captains, or military mag

meek virtue of Capt. John Gilpin, and end

In an evil hour the great Col. Brantley
(regiment unknown), appeared "in St.
Joseph ; began install tly to speculate in
real estate with pluck and enterprise atid
evrumng except money; eaued upon
bewildered men of substance to indorse

Now. if we may be allowed a bull, the

I)e Foe might have dressed up such a

give the naked outlines. The boners are
such a numerous company, darting away
from every point of the compass, by rail,
by steamboat, in their own vehicles, on

rest to the imagination ol the gentle read

fatal confidence of man in man which it
would please us better to find less gener
ally and less successfully practiced upon
by the designing. Confidence mr.y. iu the
happy, primeval times, have been a plant
of slow growth ; but in this wicked cen-

springs up and increases, and spreads like
the gourd of Jonah. Does a man an

The San Francisco Tones some weeks
since had a leader deprecating the policy
of the press discussing the fitness of men
who are candidates for office, and urging
that so far as the newspapers are con
cerned the politicians should be allowed
to make their own fight for the nomina
tions, and. that done it was the duty ef the
Union press to help elect them. This is a
detestable doctrine, and one which, if car
ried to its results, would put the Govern
ments of the State and Nation into the
hands of the profligate and worthless.
The man whose antecedents will not bear
discussing before nomination had better
not be a candidate. That policy then ad
vocated would favor only the evil doers
and cause able, faith fa!, upright men to
abandon the filthy pool," for in very
truth it Would then be abominably so. In
deed it was on its very face so obnoxious
that the Tijues could not long tolerate it,
lor that journal in a later issue strikes out
i?i the opposite direction and comes up to
the work fully and fairly thus :
"It is totally absurd to say that bad
men can be safely trusted with power, un
der the pretext of carrying out good prin
ciples or measures. All reliances upon
the promises of the bad. and the pledges
of polUiciansmerely.aro as unsabs'iamialas
chalf as senseless as the idiot s dream.
Every man who is elevated to office carries
with him something of a borrowed influ
ence ; and. whenever his character is bad.
as well as when he differs from the mass of
the people on the great 'principles of human
freedom, he is a dangerous man, aud ought
not to. be trusted witli. anything more than
Ids own independent iraiueneo. When
fierce political partisavis. in their scramble
for oCiee. cry out measures, not men. as
the watchwoid by which they expect to
rally the hosts of freedom to iheir support.
and as the passport by whi
profiigale and unorincipled
e to ride
into power over the honest-minded men, it
is the duty of the people to chock such
madne'is. and repudiate the demagogues,
whether thev have been nominate;! by do
eepUon in respectable conventions, or
forced upon the party by frauds at the
p r i ru ary elec t ion. 7
Strike then at improper men before they
receive the nomination, and thus save the
party the disgrace of having them as stan
dard bearers, aud the country from the
evil consequences that would surely flow
from their success.
