BONO BY AN OLD SAVAGE.
Dearest girl, for the high cultivation
Of your form, take all possible care,
But, oh pray to your mind's information
Of attention do pay a small share !
In a few years, without satbfaction,
On your toilet youH lavish your pains ;
Beauty gcea, and a women's attraction
Then entirely depends on her brains.
While you still keep the figure and features
Which men gaze on with joy and delight
Tou may say what you will, pretty crea
tures, Twill be taken for clever and bright.
Such delusion is owing to Cupid,
That no word can be uttered amiss,
Though entirely unmeaning or stupid,
By the lips that appear made to kiss.
When her mouth's line of grace have got
Eyes grow dim, cheeks are faded and
By a woman if nonsense is spoken
Man perceives that her speech is absurd,
Tis the waist that has ceased to be slender,
Tis the ankles that more are slim,
When she talks any folly, tBat render
All that folly apparent to him.
Persevere then, with earnest endeavor,
Still those fueitive charms to enhance
Study dress as intently as ever,
With a view to display and to dance,
But read books too that make th mind
When your good looks have vanished
And you can't please the eye any longer,
That you then may have something to
THE STATE OF THE MARKETS.
Breadstuffs Rising every day.

Indigo The trade Is dyeing.
Pickled Pork Dead and very inactive.
Brandy Very spirited.
Vermillion Finds a reddy sale.
Nutmegs In grater demand.

Declivity of Rivers. A very
slight declivity suffices to give the
running motion to water. Three
inches per mile in a smooth, stra'ght
channel, gives a velocity of three
miles an hour. The Ganges, which
gathers the waters of the Himalaya
Mountains, the loftiest in the world,
is estimated at eighteen hundred
miles from its mouth, only about eight
hundred feet above the level of the
ea, and to fall these eight hundred
feet in its long course, the water re
quires more than a month. The
great river Magdalena, in South
America, running one hundred miles
between two ridges of the Andes,
falls only two hundred feet in all
that distance. Above the com
mencement of the one hundred miles
it is seen descending in rapid cata
racts from the mountains. The gi
gantic Rio de la Plata has so gentle
a descent to the ocean that in Para
guay, fifteen hundred miles from the
mouth, large ships are seen which
have sailed against the current al
the way by the force of the witid
alone that is to say, which, on the
beautifully inclined plane of the
stream, have been gradually lifted
hj the soft wind, and even against
the current, to an elevation greater
than that of our loftiest spires.
-Steadiness of purpose is capable
of helping us in the smallest as wel
as in the greatest events and acts o
life. It is not with the moralist as
with the economist " Take care o
the pence and the pounds will take
care of themselves" but, Take care
upon what ruling principle you frame
your conduct, and the details of your
daily lives will fall easily, and rightly,
and naturally under it." Let the
purpose of your lives be steady, and
your acts will be steady ; even your
thoughts and wishes will not be flut
tering after the nnattainablo and the
Impossible. If you lose some pleas,
ant dreams, you will also lose the
more bitter awakenings. Only please
to accept in friendly mood our part
ing admonition, and, when you seek
for steadiness of purpose, "see that
you get it.''
" Boiled clocks" gives the im
pression of a very novel and some
what unpalatable dish, although we
see it recommenced in the Scientific
American. A writer in that journal
says that common brass clocks may
be cleaned by immersing the works iu
boiling water. Rough as this treat
ment may appear, it works well,
whenever they stop from an accumu
lation of dust or thickening of oil
upon the pivots. They should be
boiled in pure rain water, and dried
on a warm stove or near the fire
The writer speaks of an eight-day
clock which was boikd a vear ago,
and has behaved perfectly "well ever
There are few manufactures in
which there have been more radical
change recently than in book-making.
The manufacture and sale of books
has increased five times over in the
last twenty years. Editions of new
and nntried books to the number of
3,000 are unhesitatingly ventured on
by publishers at their own risk, where
one thousand were printed with much
trepidation ten years ago. " W nen
we started our first steam press in
1832," said one of Harper Brothers,
" we thought we were going to do
all the printing in the country." Now
the firm employs over forty. The
artistic taste and mechanical skill dis
played by compositors, pressmen and
binders are Tery far superior to what
it was ten years ago. Compare
Harper & Brothers' last edition of
the " Lives of the Stephensons'1 with
their first, or witness any of Ticknor
& Fields', or the Appletons' books of
early and late years. Even the pe
riodical magazines in which uniform
ity of style must be preserved, illus
trate the great improvement in typog
raphy, press work, binding, Scc. The
books of the present day are magnifi
cent specimens of the art; but in view
of the prrcat changes which nave oc
curred it would be unwise to think
them perfect. Ihey will appear
shabby enough beside the books
which will be produced at less cost
in 1878 Tmes.
