LIFE. BY 51. LOT IS GOr.tISJIITH. f.ife is but a troubled stream, Flowing on as in a dream— Wider, deeper growing— Bearing freight for good or ill, Hast'ning on some gulf to fill, Into the grave flowing. Down the stream our barks are borne, Like some water-lily torn From its quiet mooring ; Now we, at a tearful rate, <ilid on hefpiess to our fate, Dire suspense enduring. past a whirlpool now we glide ; Breakers now on either side Threaten to destroy us. Faraway, brilliant light Shines ucioss the mutky night, Seeking to decoy us. Th-re, along the treacherous tide. Shipwrecks loom up far and wide. At the shrin* of pleasure Stranded ; bulks there strayed away. And within the rocky bay- Cast awav their 'reasriie. Sail we on ! Onr cratt, though wreak. Came thus far without a leak , s torms and wave's commotion Hastened rather than delayed The votfage, and we've almost made Eternity's dark ocean. Pause we hpre—but no * the tide Sweeps us onward —we abide Not on earth or ocean Rest nnfotind eludes our clasp, • Till we, at our latest gasp, Yield to Death's dire potion 1 AN INFERNAL MACHINE. Several years ago, a friend of mine took a ; Irook store B street, Cincinnati.— . Things went cm very well lor a tniu- . but iike | all the rest of mankind, he hud seveiai ''ni \ wishers," as he expressed if, who were ron- j stautly watching for an opportunity to do turn i harm. One day, the Adams' Express Company pin- j ced \ box in front of his door: and without! broking at the inscription he signed the ticket, and the man drove off. A lew moments later he went nut, ar.ci was surprised lu see "This side up with extreme car* !" marked on the up per surface. Now, this caution together wilh the singular app. arauce of the box, caused oui friend to ii- .. little* suspicious, lor it was short- ! ly after Allison and in wife were killed by the explosion nl an infernal machin \ He had it careful:y carried tuto the store, ' and then aii the clerks gathered around it to see the wonderful b.x. Jt was then carefully placed behind the counter, w.iere it remained tor a whole week. At the end of that time he ' got tired of" keeping company with such a dare ' gerous companion, and tie consulted a few per- ' sons (among whom were myself,) what he 5 should do with it. After a little talk, he resol ved to sink the box in the cistern tor three days, ' after which was to be opened, It was placed in the water accordingly.— 1 We ail laughed heartily over the affair, for ev- I eiy one except our friend, considered it an im mense joke, for it had been published a few days previous that a woman had received a box and thinking it to be an infernal machine, she sunk it in the cistern. When her husband came home at night, he inquired about his ten dol lar box ol cigars that fie had sent home during 1 the day ! No doubt they were well soaked ! 1 In the anticipation of having a very grand 8 lime, Jake Kile published it in the papers. The appointed uay came, and with it came ' some two tiundred terrified people. The box 1 was taken out of the cistern, and laid upon the counter. Some ladies began to shed tears, and 1 one I believe filiated. Every body pre>ent was j fearful thai (he oiX was closed so tightly lhat ( the water had not entered j'. However, our j ! friend advanced aud kicked tile box*. All shud- | . tiered. No explosion, and he kicked again j with the same result. Then he look a small ; J haichet and carefully pried the lid open. He j lifted ihe top carefully, but hesitated about re moving the cloth that was spread over some- 0 thing within. At length, however, it was ta ken off! Alt pressed eagerly forward to see u ttie wonderful infernal machine. Our friend clasped his hands ; the clerks burs- v ted . the people clapped their and shou ted : "boldl sold ! sold!" ® isheil forward and peeped into the box j - There lay a huge doll baby dressed in s New York paper! . * , i( A lady in an omnibus at Washington espied b 'be great unfinished dome of the capitoi, ( which j 'I cerlauiiy looks very little like a dome ai pies- ' h nt.! and said Hinoceatjy — h "I suppose those are the ga> works i" ; ti "Yes madam, lor the nation," was the re- ' f< F' of aft How passenger.

ILLUSTRATION OF FINE ART APPRE CIATION Two very splendidly attired ladies recently made a condescending visit to the studio of one of our distinguished landscapisis, and a..k*d the privilrge ol look it gat his Pictures. The artist was but 100 happy to comply with their request and piaced before them a brilliant sunset which he had just finished. His vi-itors were lavish of those charming epithets winch ladies bestow so liberally upon objects of their admiration.— "Oh. isn't it lovely ! How sweet! How nat ural !" etc. And then, after gazing at the glowing canvass lor-a lew moments in rapt si lence, the lady who had been loudest in ex pressing her admiration, said with a naivete which must have penetrated to the core of Ihe painter's heart : "Pray, Mr. G , is it a moonlight ?" The artist meekly replied lhat it was inten- j -led for a "sunset." "Oh, indeed," replied Ihe lady. "Pray, Mr. G , which do you think the most ; difficult to do, pictures in oils or in wor sted V "Really," repli-d the astonished painter, "I am unable to say, for 1 have never don.' any thing in worsted." "Ah !" said the lady, "1 find it so difficult, in working little dogs, to put in the eyes !" ( This reminds us c.f an an.-cdoie the lamented Henry Ininan used to relate. He was sitting in his studio, then in Murray Street, near Broadway, one morning, when a jaunty look- j ing young man an i woman en'ered, and wan-; ted to "see the picture he ha - 1 painted of S'phiar j G ,in B Street." It was unfinished, 1 but was readily shown to them by the always ; obliging artist. "0, ain't that good ! ain't that good ! partic-! ularl v the comb .' That's'S'phiar's comb for alt the world' I should have known it any where !" The appreciative young lady'-? companion idmitted that it wa3 good ; and added flattering ly to the artist : "Alter all,' paihtin' is a regular trade, isn't ,t 7" " He 'old his companion, however, that "the aest way to look at a picture, if ybu wanted to ■throw it NmT,' is so," and he stooped down and looked up at it thrcnjgh his legs ! Somebody had probably told him that distance was some times given to a landscape by that process. Dif ference of costume rendered his improved lens ■ anavailable '.O hie companion. JIM AND HIS BRIDE- The Indianapolis State Sentinel relates the lb!lowing : "A happy, unsophisticated coup!? from the j rural districts got married on Tuesday last and j posted oiTto Indianapolis to enjov the first lew j days in seeing the sights at th"e State Fair.— j They first stopped at the American House,! where Kinkie, after puzzling hi;; brain to the i utmost, was unable to give them a room, and | they were obliged to-be separated. On VVed- j nesday night they tried another hotel, with no, better success. The rooms were all crowded, ! and men had to oe huddled together in pne room, some on the floor, and packed up any way, while ladies were served the same in oth er rooms appropriated to their use. On Thurs day, the unhappy couple, in despair an ! disgust ed with crowded hotels, seaiched (or and found a private boarding house. The landlady sym pathized with them and promised it possible that they should have a. room. But on Thurs day a perfect avalanche of people came upon the town, tin boarding-'- ouses and'private hou ses as well as the hotels had to make every shift to stow away 1 as many as possible at night.— j Our unfortunate newly-wedded pair heard with i dismay after tea, that they would have to be ; ;eparated again that night. The groom looked | his disappointment, but the bride could riot con- j trol her feelings and blubbered out as she stamp- > ed her foot on the floor—"l've got my head s-'t ' on it, and I won't be separated from Jim any i more." The boarders snorted, and offered to j sleep in the street, or any way, but the landla- 1 dy*would not allow i, and Jim had to take a berth on the carpet, away from hi* weeping j third night. NVver bring your! bride to a Fair." A Democrat of the Grand River Valley, not of'.en seen in church, recently attended a | Methodist prayer meeting. VVe shall call him j Squiggl- byway of concealment. In a short j time his countenance lost its usual oiiv 'jolly j look, and he became oblivious of the solemnities ' going on around him, and was plunged in a j profound reverie over the recent defeat of his i parte- in Maine, which h° had been discussing that morning. As he reflected, his face nalu- ; rally elongated, and his jaw dropped, .\oti- ' cing hi-, sei lUUS and solemn look, and not re- j numbering ever to have seen hiin before, one of the brethren took him to be a stranger cf a •• religious turn of mind, and leaned ov- r firs j bench and remarked : "Biotfser, these are refreshing seasons." Squiggle gazed vacantly at the speaker and ; groaned inwardly. The brother paused : •'lt is good to te* here." Squiggle, still absorbed in reverie, groaned , again. "Brother, do you often think of your future stale ?" At the word "state" the eyes of our 1) mo cratic Irlend lost their dreamy look, and bis; jaw clashed into place like a rat trap. "Stat--!" fie exclaimed, brine-ing down his clenched ■lst on the oack of his questioner's bench, with an emphasis that startled tiie wor lv brother greatly.

Tiie youth went, and tire parte he travelled! wi'h was assaulted be robbers. One follow asked th- boy what be had, to, which he answered - "Forty dollars are sowed up tu nty gar- i merits." 'I he robbers laughed, thinking the bov jes ted. Another a-ked the same question, at:d re-; Ceived the same answer. At last the chief cat fed him and asked hiin j what he had .said. The boy replied ; "I have told two of your people already that j 1 have forty dollars sewed up in my clothes." | "The chief ordered the clothes to be ripped I open, and the money found. "And how came you to tell this ?" "Because," replied the boy, "I would not be false to my mother, to whom 1 promised nev er to tell a he." "Child," said the robber, "art thou so mind- | lul of thy duty to thy mother at thv years, and | am I insensible, at my age, of the duty I owe to God f Give me thy hand, that 1 may swear ; repentance on it."

THC RASCALS BEATEN. —On the steamer O- j j cean, from Cleveland on Monday night, there j came a number of sharpers, attracted thither bv [ { the State Fair. They made several attempts I with three-card rrionte and other swindling jj games at cards to "rope in" some of the other 1 passengers, but Without effect, till one young ' man was found and badgered till he took out t •$!5. He bet on four kings, but the gambler I showed four aces, and the greeny was out just ! j. s!f>. A Cleveland gentleman who had been j v quietly looking on proceeded to inquire of the | young man his name, business, &c. The lat- l n ter in reply, stated that he was living in the | Saginaw country; worked for $!0 a month and ! had beer, down to Biack River, Ohio, to get a- j

bout $l-0 due him for labor there. This he had h with him when he came'on board. T'he gen- ] t It man called Capt. Evans and told the ctrcum- j v stances. "Capt.

The rascals gave up $lO, but j s said tiiey certain I v ought to be allowed to keep 1 h sh.

He was re -1 markable for his modesty, and his thirst lor j eve." j One unlucky day the proceedings being ra ; thei dull, and Dobbs being rather thirsty, he i concluded to go over to the hotel and take a j drink. As Dobbs rose to leave the hall, he , caught the Speaker's eye. The Speaker sup , posed he intended to address the house, and ' announced in a low voice j "Mr. Dobbs!" Dobbs started as if he had been shot. The assembled wisdom of the State had their eves | fixed upon him. He pulled out his pocket I handkerchief to wipe away the perspiration, j and feeling it necessary to saj, something, ho j thundered out: "Second the motion." "There is no motion before the house." said i the Speaker, j "Then I I" I :e silence was brea'hles?. ; Dobbs could not think of anything to say.

HOMELY TRUTHS FOR WlVES. —Although your husband may neglect to give you a new dress, do not seek revenge by giving hun a good dressing. Do not hesitate between the choice of an expensive mantle and your husband's affection ; tbuug'njthe lorraer may be dearer to your besom. Should your husband bring a friend home to j partake of yesterday's beef, do not be churlish, but let a warm smile season the cold repast. Prefer the country rambles'jto town lounges: the colors of the rose are brighter than the hues of silk, and the de'vdrops outshine the jewel ler's gems. Never deny your husband the pleasure of smoking ; the cigar by the fireside is the domes tic calumet ol peace. Be careful in brewing the cup which cheers, but not iubebriate3 ; strong tea is better than weak arguments. The hand which was pledged at the altar is not disgraced in sewing on a button, and re member—as you sow, so shall you reap.

Mr. Cornwall Simeon gives the following anecdote in his "St.ay Notes on Fishing and Natural History 1 | "A parrot belonging to some friends of min j was generally taken out ol the room when the j famiiy assembled for prayers, for fear led he I might take it into his head tojoin irreverently {in the responses. One evening, however, his ! presence happened to be unnoticed, and he was , forgotten. For some time he maintained a ! decorous silence, but at length, instead of 'A ; men,' out he came with 'Cheers, boys, cheers.' • On (his the butler was directed to remove hirn, ; when the bird, perhaps, thinking that he had | committed himself, and had better apologize, j called out, 'Sorry 1 spoke.' The overpower i ing effect on the congregation may be more ; easily imagined than described." A SICKLY girl in Plymouth, N.

Then the family gave her iiberty, and watched her movements :n hope that the same somnambulism that carried it off i would again find if. The other night she star ted out followed by her brother. She walked places that he uare not follow ; but the moon , light helped show her course, and he kept along. Finally she walked up the trunk of an old tree that hung out an angle of fortp-five de grees over a brook, stood firmly at the end, j while the tree swayed beneath her, and stoop ing down brought out that watch. Returning to terra firma the brother waked her, took the properly, and they hurried home. justice of the peace in Dubuqup, lowa, whose love of liquor exceeds his knowledge ol law, visited a sic; friead the oilier night, upon ; whose table stood a tumbler [of brand.y which | had been ordered by the doctor.
