" boob disorder. wruii ling, and irregularity, rob me of my peact and make the bouse a bedlam instead of a qoiet home Tom!" she spoke sharply to a bright fellow who was pounding away with a wooden hammer on a chair, and makiag a most intolerable din, "atop that noise this in stant . And you, Em, not a word more from your lips. If you oan't leave in peaoe with your ?iuter, I'll separate you. Dye hear* hush this instant!" ? Then make Julia give me my pincusftion. She s ^ot it in her pocket." Julia' ' 00 8UCtl ng"~* haven't," retorted M Too have, I say." " I tell you I haven't " " Will you hush ?" The face of Mrt. Lyon was fiery red ; she stamped upon the floor as she spoke. 441 want my pincushion. Make Jule o-ive me my pincushion." Irritated beyond oontrol, Mm. Lyon caujrht Julia by the arm, and thrusting her hand into her pocket, drew out a piece of lace and a penknife. ?;I told you it wasn't there; conldn t you believe me." Thia impertinence was more than the mo Hi?!! ? eiJduro' "nd> acting upon her in. dignant impulse, she boxed the ear* of Julia soundly, conscious at the same time that Em i 'j was chiefly to blame for all this trouble by a wrong accusation of her sister; she turned upon her also, administering to her 11kowide an equal punishment Frightened by all this, the younger children, wnosc in cessant noise for the la?t half hour had con tributed to the overthrow of their mother's temper, became suddenly quiet, and skulked away into the corners; and the baby, that was seated on the floor between two pillars, curved her quivering lips, and glanced fear fully up at the distorted face in whieh she bad beeu used to see the love light that made her heaven A deep quiet followed this bum of passion, like the hush which succeeds the storm Alas for the evil traces that were left behind ! Al? for tho repulsive image of that mother, da- i guerreotyped in an instant, on the memory of tier children, and never to be effaced How many many times, in after years, will n,t a sigh heave in their bosoms, at that painful reflection looks out upon them from amid the dear remembrances of childhood A woman with good impulses, but with scarcely any self-control, was Mrs Lyon. She cl?,Idren> and desired their good That they showed so little forbearance one with another, manifested so little fraternal teeling, grieved her deeply. ''My whole life is made unhappy by iL" she would often say ; ?? what is to be done>" It is dreadful to think of a family growing up in disorder and disunion. Sister at variance brother^'' bf0ther lifting his haod aK*iu*t As was usual after the ebullition of passion, Mrs^ Lyon, deeply depressed in spirits, as well as discouraged, retired from her family to grieve and weep Lifting the frightened baby from the floor, she drew her head tenderly against her bosom, and leaving the nur?erv sought the quiet of her room There in re pentance and humiliation, she recalled the stormy scene through which she had just pa-.. ed, and blamed herself for yielding blindly to passion, instead oi meeting the trouble among her children with a quiet discrimina tion. 1 o weeping, calmness succeeded. StHl she was perplexed, in mind, as grieved at her own .?0Ul7r0lu * LHt Wtt* 10 bo done with her children ? Uow wero they to be governed aright ? Painfully did she feel her otn unfit ues* tur the task. By this time the baby was asleep, and the mother felt something of that tranquil peace that every true mother knows when a young babe is slumbering on her bosom. A bock lay ou the shelf near where the was sitting, ani Mrs. Lyon, scarcely con scious of the act, reached out her hand tor the volume. She opened without feeling any in terest in its contents, but she had reSd only a few sentences, when this remark arrested her attention: "AI1JW governmertof children begins with self government." The words seemed written for her, and the truth expressed was elevated instantly into perception. She saw it in the olearest light, and closed the book and bowed her hea<l in sad acknowledgment of her own errors Thus for some time she had been sitting, when the murmur of the voices from below grew more and moro distinct, and she was soon aroused to the painful fact that, as usual, when left alone, the children were in a wrangle among themselves Various noises, as of pounding and throwing chairs and other picces of fur niture, were heard, and at length a loud scream, mingled with angry vociferations, smote upon her ears. Indignation swelled instantly in the heart Mrs. Lyon ; hurriedly placing the sleeping baby in its crib, she started for the scene of disorder, moved by an impulse to puuish se verely tho young rebels against authority, and was halt way down stairs, when her feet were checked by a remembrance of the senti rnent 4- All right government of children be gins with self-government " 14 Will anger subdue anger 7 When storm meets storm, is the tempest still ?*? These were questions asked of herself almost invol untarily. 44 This is no spirit in which to meet my children. It never has, and never will enforce obedience," she added, as she stood upon the stairs, struggling with herself and striving for victory, rrom the nursery came louder sounds of disorder. How weak the mother felt. Yet in this very weakness was strength. 441 must not stand idle here,' she said, as a sharper cry of anguish smote on her ears and so she moved on quickly and opening the nur sery door stood revealed to her children. Julia had just raised her hand to strike Emily, who stood confronting her with a fiery face. Both were a littlo startled at their mother's sudden appearance, and both expecting the st^rm whiou usually came at such times, becamo to assume the defiant, stubborn air with which her intemperate reproofs were always met A few moments did Mrs Lyon stand look ing at her children?grief, not anger, upon her pale countenance. How still all became What a look of wonder came gradually into the children's faces, as they glanced one to the other. Something of shame was next vis ible. And now the mother was oonscious of a new power over the young rebels of her house hold. "Emily," said she, speaking mildly, and yet with a touch of sorrow in her voice she could not subdue, 441 wish you would go up into my room and sit with Mary while tho sleeps." Without a sighn of opposition, or even cf re luctance, Emily went quietly from the nur sery, in obedienoe to her mother's desire liB ,fhis room is very much in disorder, Jr Many times had Mrs. Lyon said under sim ilar circumstance, 44 Why don t you put things S/lhi h -?r' " 1 nover ?uch girls !

Won't you try to pity without making ro tnu*h noiseT" n Yes, mother, I'll try," answered the little fellow, cheerfully. " But I'll forget some times " He looked earnestly at his mother, as if something else was in his thoughts " Well dear, what else ?" said she, encour agingly *' When I forget, you will tell me, wjn't you V* u Yes lore." *' And then I'll stop But don't scold me mother, for then I can't stop " Mrs Lyon's heart was touohed. She caught her breath, and bent her faco down to conoeal it* expression, until it re?tel on the silken hair ot the child. " Be a good boy, Tommy, and mother will never scold yon any more," she murmured gently in his ear Hi* arms stole upwards, and they were closely twined about her neck, he pressed his Ifps tightly against her cheek ; thus sealing hi' part of the contract with a kiss How sweet to the mother's taste were those first fruits of self-control In tbe effort to govern herself what a power had she ac quired. In stilling the tempest of passion in her own bosom, she hud poured the oil of peace over the storm-fretted heart-- of her ohildren Only first fruits were these. In all her af ter days did that mother s rive with herself, ere fhe entered into a contest with tbe inher ited evils of her children, and just so far she was able to overcome evil tn them. Often, very otten, was self-resistance only a slight effort, but the feeble influence of good that flowod from her w ?rds or action whenever this was so, warned her of error, and prompted a more vigorous self control. Need it be fail that she had an abundant reward. POLITICAL GOSSIP The Albany Register (now removed to New York city) is out for Horace Greeley as a can didate for Governor. Since Olc Bull signified his intention of con tributing a good sum of money to the Fremont cause several newspapers have adviaed him first to pay them what be owes for advertising, Even ine Milwaukie American, a fierce Fre mont paper, jjins in this hue and cry against the distinguished fiddler. The Lowell Cititen threatens that unless the Republicans support Gov Gardiner, tbe Amer ican* will run separata tickets against the Re publicans for all other offices, from Congress men down to county officers, at the risk of throwing them into the hands of the Demo crats The Maine Free Press says that the Key stone clubs have been formed in Stratfjrd, Whitefield, and other towns in C??oe bounty N. 11., where they are no " Republicans" except the dandy tourists and loafing clergymen, who go up to the White Hill* to spend the summer The venerable Judge Kent, known through out the legal world by his commentaries on tl a constitution, and as one of the greatest consti* tutional lawyers in the Union, goes heartily for Fremont He presided at a recent meet ing at Fukill landing, New York Is the Judp.e a disunion sectiouahat ??button At.'a* The 41 venerable Judge Kent" spoken of in the above has been dead for some eight or ten years.

He avows it as his opinion that Sharp's rifles are better than Bibles, and and that it is a shame to shoot at a man and not hit him. A y>>ung gentleman who was ardently ar guing in favor of Fremont s election was re plied to by buxom young miss, who expressed doubts of Fremont's success; whereupon the gentleman proposed to bet a kiss that hi* < ?b didate would win, upon these terms : " If Fre mont is chosen, you are to kit's me?if Bne hunan is elected I am to kiss you " We should'nt mind gambling a little ourselves after this fashion. Let it not be forgotten?let it be told to every adapted cititen of German birth who ia likely to be deluded into the support of Fremont? that George Law, the great Know Nothing leader, who is one of the intimate and confi dential friends of Fremont, has written a let ter to say 441 shall give my support to John C Fremont, as the best representative, in mv estimation, of the American people, anA of the American (Know Nothing! The Delaware Gasette says The people of Delaware look upon Mr. Buchanan as their neighbor, and bolieving him to be by far the most wise and conservative candidate in the field, will vote for him without regard to party lines. While this is the feeling of the people, the Democracy are so well pleased with tho choice of the Cincinnati Convention, that they are determined to give our nominees a larger majority, in proportion to population, than the good old Keystone of Jhe Federal arch dare roll up for her favorite son In 1820, John Quincy Adams reoeived one electoral vote in New Hampshire, while the balance was cast for Monroe ; and in 1828 F.

Also in 1H25 tbe electoral vote of New York was divided among four candidates ; that of Maryland among three, and of Dela ware, Louisiana and Illinois between two can didates.
