"A little house u>tll fi'ted " Our houses are too large, and too cost ly. We hare, usually, one or two rooms that are merely for show; a parlor per haps two, with folding doors between, that are only open for company, that are too nice for children to play in, too large to be warmed readily in winter; in short, like a dandy, too nice for anything use ful. And then, often, there is a part of the house unfini>hed, a large attic which might accommodate a whole family, oc cupied now by a few old l>oxes of white beans, and a few bunches of catnip and pennyroyal, and some broken chairs and a cradle. This upper story was proba bly put on because you wanted a house as large as your neighbors. Now a house should, in some measure, fit a fam ily, as a suit of clothes should fit an in dividual. Although it is not, perhaos, always safe to couut your children before they are born, and therefore the capacity of ycur house must often be by estima tion, yet everywhere are houses gemg up, with the perfect understanding that a xmsiderable part of the room is to be useless, either kept for an annual party, or to remain unfinished. If we who plan and build such houses, would re flect upen it fairly, we should see that no rational man would entertain for u> any more respect for living in a house which we do not fill, than for wearing a suit of clothes made for a person of twioe our size Let us have "a little house well filled," with no spare room except a chamber for our friends, and no lumber room of a garret for ghosts, rats, and mice to in habit. I he thousand dollars which even careful men generally expend in build ing "a houne to live in," merely to con form to fashion, or an architectural whim, costs the poor wife and children many a lecture upon penny economy, which might otherwise have been spared. And when you have built or purchased a house too large for your wants, the evil has but commenced. Your large and numerous rooms require large and nu merous carpets, and curtains, and sofas, and other adornings. But this is not all, nor the worst of it. The bouse and i the furniture must be taken oft?swipi ! and dusted daily, and scrubbed and : scoured Spring and Fall, whm house ! cleaning time comes round. You must ? either pay for help to do all this, or what ! is perhaps more common, allow addition al burdens to fall on your wile, who has already a ceaseless round of cares. A sensitive or even a just man should see ! that, in this land, where seivants are an | expensive luxury, at best, his wife have I comfort and leisure, and a selfish man | * may soon learn that he cannot lead a peaceful'and happy life with a woman who is overrun with hard work and fain ily cares. We think if our reader him j self is not open to censure in the panic , ular3 named, he may find plenty of his ; neighbors to whom our remarks will apply. And then, again, we are extravagant in our household furniture. The ladies must come in for a share of our lecture on this topic. The furniture of a house is mainly for u<e and comfort. Carpets ani sofas and tables and chairs are chiefly designed to promote warmth anil quiet and physical enjoyment in some way. A carpeted floor is warmer in win ter, and the children make less disturb ance on it than bare boards; and besides, they require much le&s labor to keep them in nice order. Let comfort then be regarded, principally in selecting furui |jre. But a nice perception of the fitness ot things which is good taste?the faculty of producing harmony between the occu pants of the house and the house itself, and between the house and the furniture and surroundings?this is what you do not buy at the upholsterers, this is be yond price, and a matter, madam, in which it is your province to excel. Let the furniture, say, as plain things can speak, this house is for the comfort of those w ho livo inside of it and not for mere callers and strangers. This carpet is not too good for the children to roll on, this aim chair will not be soiled by being occupied, and the bright sun-l'ght may visit the inmates in the morning, bringing health and cheerfulness, with out fear that it will fade the brilliant colors of the silk and velvet. If, when your house is built, and furnished, you have money to spare for articles of mere taste and luxury, the world is full of books and pictures, and a thousand other things, which will afford to a refined arid cultivated mind far mere rational enjoyment than a whole ware-house oi gilded mahogany. On the whole, we think the ambition which is common among all classes, to live in large houses, elegantly furnished, is leading us daily into embarrassments aud discomforts, which as a thoughtful rational people, we ought not longer to suffer. CHARGES OF CLIMATE. History informs us that many of the countries of Europe which now possess very mild winters, at one time expe rienced severe cold during this season of the year. The Tiber at Rome was often frozen over, and snow at one time lay for forty days in that city. The Euxine Sea was frozen over every winter during the time of Ovid, and the rivers Rhine and Rhone used to be frozen so deep that the ice sustained loaded wagons. The waters of the Tiber, Rhine and Rhone, now flow freely every winter; ice is un known in Rome, and the waves of the Euxine dash their wintry foam uncrys talizcd upon the rocks. Some one lias ascribed these climate changes to agri culture; the cutting down of dense for ests, the exposure of the upturned soil to the summer's sun, aud the draining of great marshes. We do not believe that great changes could have been produced on the climate of any country by agri culture, and we are certain that no such theory can account for the contrary change of climate?from warm to cold winters?whith history tells us has taken place in other countries than those named. Greenland received its name from the em.raM herbage which once clothed its valleys and mountains: and its east coast, which is now inaccessible, on account of perpetual ice heaped upon its shores, was in the eleventh century, the seat of flourishing Scandinavian oolonies, all trace of which is now lost. Gold Labra dor was named Vinland by the i^orth men who visited it A D. 1 000, and were charmed with its then mild climate. The cause of these charges is an im portant inquiry. A pamphlet, by John Murray, civil engineer, has recently been published in London, in which be endea vors to attribute these changes of the cli mate to the changable position of the magnetic poles. The magnetic variation or declination of the needle is well known. At the present time it amounts in Lon don to twenty-eight decrees west north, while in 1658, the line of variation passed through England, and then moved grad ually west until 1816. In that year a great removal of ice took place on the coast of Greenland ; hence it is inferred that the cold meridian now passes through Italy, and that if the magnetic meridi n returns, as it is now doing, to its old lines in Europe, Rome may once more see her Tiber froz?n over, and the merry Rhinelander drive his team on the ice of his classic river. Whether the changes of the climate mentioned have been caused by the change of the mag netic meridian or not, we have too few facts before us at present to decide con c'usively; but the idea, once spread abroad,, will soon lead to such investiga te -n.^pprttl no doubt remove every ob scumvrand settle the question.?Sacn tijic jpncrican. CAPTAIH JOB. Captain Job was what is vulgarly known as a " pig-headed man nay. he was not only pig-headed, but exceeding ly pav^fcate. The original Job was all over Ws, but our specimen toil- all 'with rage?at least twenty-four T'rnes in every twenty-four hours. It cauld scarcely be said with propriety il.at his education had been neglected, for he had received none to neglect. He could neither read nor could he write ; and what would have b^en very singular in any other less singular being, he was singularly proud of the want ot knowl edge, usually deemed of such importance. Job considered it as a proof of his exceed ing cleverness that he had got on .-o well in the world, despite his deli :icucu*. As he had many commissions ?o perform in the city, and also sold there, for account ot whom it might concern, vast quanti ties of poultry and country meats, moun tains of oysters and clams, and great loads of hay and grain, it became neces sary for him to keep some account of his vanous transactions; and accordingly he employed a system of hieroglyphics peculiarly his own, which, however, would have puzzled Champollion him self. Dollars he designated by a large cipher, shillings by smaller ones, and the copper medallions of the Goddess of Liberty tigured only as so many marks. llis customers were represented by some leading characteristic, mental, physical, or professional. A saw stood lor his friend the carpenter, a most em plialic nose for one of his cusiomers?a second Naso?and something like a clenched first was supposed to represent a particularly pugnacious individual who dtaK in clams. The articles that he had bought or sold were entered in a like manner, and when Mary was at home to take down his rude accounts in a more every-day man ner, while they were yet fresh in his mind, all went well enough ; but if she happened to be absent on his return, and die transactions of another voyage had driven those of the previous out of his r head, sometimes ludicrous blunders would occur. A man was once charged by him with the purchase of a couple of hoes and a rake, which he stoutly denied, and Job's litigious spirit would have soon involved the affair in the entanglements of the law, if the creditor's wife had not suggested that she had received two pipes and a long comb about the time, and that these might possibly be the ar ticles charged. So it proved to be, and Job. for once in his iife, was forced to submit. Anecdote of Chancelix)* Kent.? The late Chancellor Kent was one of those men whose innate dignity enabled him to take in good part familiarity? the result of ignorance and accident, lie was exceedingly fond of martial mu sic; and hearing the drums of a recruit ing party who had taken a station at the corner of the street beat a point of war, he walked out to listen to it nearer. In i sensibly he was whistling the burden of the tune, when the man ot war accosted him thus: "You are fond of such music then, my fine fellow?" "Yes," was the reply. "Well, then," said Sergeant Kite, ? "why not join us? Good quarters?good bounty?largp bounty. Besides, our Captain is a glorious fellow. Why don't you, now? You can't do better. ' 14 Well," said the Chancellor, 4,I have one pretty strong objection." "What is it?" asked the Sergeant. 44Why, just now I happen to have a better trade." 4>What trade is it?" asked the inquisi tor. 4,I am Chancellor of the Sta'e of New York." "Whew!" muttered tha Sergeant. "Strike up!?quick time!?forward, march!" Off tramped the military man, without looking behind him, leaving the Chancel lor to enjoy his laugh at the adventure.
