SONG FOR A FARMER'S BOY. t). a farmer's hoy is a joyful lad. So healthy, bright and Iree; hi Ids country home he is ever glad, O. that is 1 he home for rr e. With a hoop and a bawe to his lively team. With the lark abroad is he, W th his bread and tnilk nmobbed ol cream; O, that is the home for me. In the morning bright he drives away, tile morning sun we see. The lowing herd to the silver stream, And the pastures green ami Iree. In the summer time To the harvest field, With the cooling drink we see Both the farmer hoy ami the farmer girl; (.), that l- the home lor tne. When the autumn winds are sweeping wild, lie is gathering nuts, you see, For a winter store he'll lay them by. For his sister, himself, and me. To the orchard then he hies away. For he knows each favorite tree, And he saves the iriut for a coming friend; O.fhat is the home for me. When the w inter conies with the driving blast. Then the farmer's boy's in glee. For he loves the srir.w that is lulling fa-t, ,\s it's drifting o'er the lee. And he says to himself, to-morrow morn With rny sled and skates I'll he. While my cattle are munching their hay and corn; O, that is the home lor rne. RIB OR Rt ST. r.V KBENCZKR FLt.IOT. Idler, why lie down to die? Better rub than rust. Hark I the lark sings in the sky "D.e when die thou must 1 l>av is waking, leaves are shaking, Better rub than rust." In the grave there'.- sleep enough— Better rob than rust. Death perhaps is hunger proof, Die when die thou mu-t; Men are mowing, breezes blowing, Better rub than ru-t. lie who will not work shall want; Naught lor naught >s just Won't do, mu-t do, when he can't, Better rub than rust. Bees are flying, sln'h is dying, Better rub than rust. Terrible Accident on the Kric Railroad. (Ini- ,M<:n Ki!le.;l r.n<l ihniij Injured. The following particulars of the serious accident to the Cincinnati express train on th-- New- York ami Krie Railroad, on the 16th inst., were furnished by one of tire injured pas sengers : The train consisted of one baggage and two passenger cars, containing not far from fifty per ms, and at the time the accident occurred was going at a moderate speed. Our informant was in the forward passenger car, and says lie was first conscious of receiving a violent shock, and immediately felt himself precipitated towards one end of the car with most of the passengers, and the wreck of the seats and the stove piled up together. It seems the locomotive and tender parted from the rest of the train and were thrown off on the side from the river, while the cars went down the bank, which is about fifteen feet above the water. The river was frozen along the shore, anil one end of the first pass-mger car plunged through the ice, smashing the front and letting water into the car to the depth of two or three feet. Fortunately the fire in the stove was at once extinguished by the water. As soon as the passengers recovered conscious ness they set to work to break their way out through the shattered front of the car. A lad who was fastened under the fragments of the seats was completely drenched with water, and came near freezing to death before he was ex tricated. Nearly all the passengers in the for ward car were more or less bruis <l, though no limbs are believed to be broken. The rear car remained resting npon the ice, while its occupants were found to have sufrered more or less from contusions. The baggage car was completely demolished, and one man in it, a passenger killed, whose name our informant was unable to learn. Deceased was a sailor, and was coming; on to Cincinnati. Mis parents tire s iid to reside in Boston. There wete three or four others in the baggage car, all ui whom had a very narrow escape from death, and were quite seriimslv injured. The wounded were conveyed to the nearest dwelling house—about a quarter of a mile dis tant— and medical assistance, procured as soon as possible. Our informant received a severe cut over the right eye about three inches i:i length, which he thinks was caused by his head coming in violent contact with some portion of the car. Inconsequence of the rails being dis placed, ami not in a passable condition fir trains, the passengers arriving in the n true , east,- nnd west, together with their baggage, were transferred and the respective trains return ed. E HAVE NO .TEOTtfiCR. "Mayn't I stay, ma'am? I'll do anything you give rne; cut wood, go for water, and do all vour errands." f The troubled eyes of the speaker w ere filled with tears. Tt was a lad that stood at the out er door, pleading with a kindly-looking w oman, who still seemed to doubt the reality ol his good intent ions. The cottage stood by its-If on a bit.,k moor, or what in Scotland would have been called such. The time was near the latter end of S ■; t •mb'T, and a fierce wind rattled the boughs of the only two naked trees near the house,and Bid with a shivering sound into the narrow d or-wav, as if seeking for warmth at the blaz ing tire within. Now and then a snow-flake touched w iih he soft ciTilt the cheek of the listener, or whitened with the angry redness of the j r lm\ s I:t— -numbed hands. The woman w as evidently loath to grant the hoy's reqm and the p. ruii lu?k Matnped upon his features, would have s; *g,■•■!"! to any mind an idea of deptav itv* far ii*\ond hi years. But Imr woman's heart could tu-t insist the -orrow in those large, but hv h\ no tne.ins. barn!-one , giav eyes. "Come in, at any rate, til! the good man comes Lou. •. There, sit flown by the lire; you look ; ensiling with cold:" and she drew a rude chair up to the warmest corner; then, suspiciously glancing at the child from the i- mt-rs of l:er eyes, she c mtinued s' tting the table for supper. Presently came the tramp ol heavy shoes, the door was swung open with a quick jerk, and the "good man" presented huitsi 11, wearied wit it labor. A look ol intelligence between his wit" and kin self; he, too, scanned tie boy's face with an expression not evincing sa!isfac 1 ion; hut never theless bade him come to the and then en joyed the Ze>t with which he dispatched his supper.

O 1 there was something so horrible in the word -jail," the poor woman trembled as sis-- hi id auav her purchases: n,r con hi she tie •a sv till she called the bov in, and assured him that she knew that dark part of li s history. Ashamed, distressed, the boy hung down his lmad ; his cheeks seen ■ d bursting witH the hot blood; his lips qui vered, and anguish was pain ted as vividly'upon his forehead, a< if the words were blinded into the flesh. "Well," !m muttered, his whole frame relax in*, as if a burden of guilt or joy had suddenly rolled may a- Well g.j to ruin at orie l : there's no ii>- iri my Irving to do better; eve rt hotly hates and despises me; nobody cans a | hunt me: f may as well goto ruin at onc.'t."' '•Tell lie said the unman, who shod oil far enough for flight, if that sh mid lie necessa ry, "how came you to go to that dreadful place ? Where was your mother—where "0 !" exclaimed the boy, with a hurst of grief that was terrible to behold, "01 1 hair, t riu mother! O! J hain't had no mother ever since ; 1 was a baby. If I'd only had a mother," be continued, his anguish growing more vehement, and the tears gushed out f rom his si range- J . ik ing gmv eyes, "I Wouldn't ha' b* en bound out, i and kicked, and cuffed, and laid on to with whips.

O! 1 hain't got no mo ther ; 1 hain't got no mother : 1 haven't had no mother since I was a baby." The strength was ail gone from the poor hoy, and lie sank on ids knees, sobbing great choking sobs, and root ing the hot tears away utih his I pom- knuckles. And did that woman stand there unmoved ?—Did she coldly bid him pack up, and be off—the jail-bird ! No, no : she had been a mother, and though all her children slept und-r th<- sod in the church-yard, she was a mother still. She went up to that pi hoy, not to hasten hirn awav, bu'to lav her fingers kindly, softly on his head : to tell him to look no, and from henceforth find in her a mother.

Never! lie is with her still, a vigorous, manly, promising youth. The unfavorable ca.t of his countenance has given place to an open, pleasing expression, with depth enough to make it an interesting study. His foster-fa ther is dead : his good foster-mother, aged and sickly ; but she knows no want. The once poor outcast is her only dependence, and nobly does he repay th** trust.

York. Another case of crim. con. occurred at the Astor house on Friday evening, January d hh, as f dlows: A Philadelphia Merchant of con

siderable w.-alth, and good standing in society, had, with his wife, been stopping at the above hotel e>r some little time past-. On Tridav af ternoon the merchant found it necessary to go to Philadelphia, and accordingly crossed the ri ver for that purpose. On arriving at Jersey ci- Freedcm of Thought and Opinion. i ty, lie waited several hours Ibr the departure of! the train, hut at about " p. m. finding that there 1 was not much chance ol his getting oft that I night, he returned to the Astor House with the intention of starting afresh in the morning. In the parlor ofthe 11ot e*J the gentleman met with several acquaintance?, who kept in corner- ! sat ion until near midnight. On going to his room he found the door locked, and after ! kit eking s tne little time was obliged to force the door to gain admission. Entering the room !-. * discovered there n ,t only his wife, but -a gen tleman with whom he had been on the closest term-- of intimacy. A seei;e ensued. The violator ofthe marri age ntes; ofthe Philadelphia gentleman was un ceretr niuuslv pitched, down stairs, and after-i wards taken to the s-comJ ward police station, ivi ;e, h -a ever, the captain of the police refu sed to hold th • culprit, on the ground that he could not take cognizance of the affair. The Phi'adt iohian was obliged, t!ier< fire, to let tin* guilty j arty escape, hot managed, however, liter he had left I lie station, to p.ound him a!- .most to a j"Ily, and furthermore to promise 1 bim wI at he had received was only aj small portion of what lie intended to give liirn. Tin* gt:i!ty wife was found at about day light flie next morning lying in a half frozen condition in one of the upper looms ofthe ho tel. Th" p.e-.t day the gentleman paid his bill, ; and left the hotel on shot, and the wife, some fifteen minutes nfler, took her departure in a ; (Carriage.
