Poetry. “A Fnriurr-> Wife I’ll Be.” [Tho following linos w ere sent to ns as original by a bright-eyed daughter of one of the best farmers In Waldo County. Knowing the kindness always dis played, and the comforts enjoyed in her own “sweet, sweet home,” we do not wonder that she has resolv ed to Join her fortdhos lor life, only with some wor thy husband-mau. We confess we have some doubts of its originality, though we do not recollect ever to have seen it before.) I am a wild and laughing girl, just turned of sweet sixteen, As full of mischief and of fun as ever you have seen, And when I am a woman grown, no city beaux for me, I if e’er I marry in my life, a farmer’s w ife I’ll be. I love a country life; I love the Joyous breeze, 1 love to hear tho singing birds among the lofty trees, The lowing herds, tho bleating decks make music sweet for me; If e’er I marry in my life, a larmer’s wife l’U be. 1 love to see the chickens skip, I love to milk the cows. 1 love to hear the larmer’s boys a whistling at their ploughs; And Helds of com and waving grata are pleasant sights to me; If e’er I marry in my life, a farmer’s wife I’U be. I love to see the orchards where the golden apples grow; 1 love to walk in meadows where so bright the stream lets flow; And flowery banks and shady woods have many charms forme;— If e’er 1 marry in my life, a farmer’s wife I’ll be. Let other girls, who love it best, enjoy the gloomy town, ’Mid dusky walls and dusty streets to ramble up and down; But flowery banks and shady woods and sunny skies tor me ;— If e’er I marry in my life, a farmei’s wife I’ll be. Our Vonuu FrimJ*. As surely as we know that a vigorous plant iu spring will produce the largest fruits in au tumn, so surely caD we foresee the youth who in the coming years of manhood or woman hood will make the strangest marks upon their age and command the respect and hom age of the community. By their mental and moral tendencies they foreshadow their ap proaching characters and positions. When young people despise parental restraints, hate then school-rooms, scorn a good book or pa per, and are seldom seen pursuing any useful and serious studies calculated to subserve the purposes of a manly life; but instead, are seen wasting precious hours In the haunts ol idleness, folly and dissipation, it requires no prophet to predict that these are the ones from whose ranks the paupers, beggars and convicts of our prisons are to come—and this at no very distant day. The fact is as inevita ble as any law of nature. Stones were not made to swim iu water. Ignorance and vi cious habits are millstones to any body’s neck. On the contrary, when you see a sober minded, steady lad or lass, who respects the authority of father and mother, whose seat in the school-i oom is regularly occupied, who loves a good book or paper, and prefers to spend time in the company of those from whom something useiul can be learned, rather than in the society of the idle and giddy, who re members the Sabbath day to keep it holy, and is an habitual attendant on the means of mor al and religious, as well as intellectual culture, we may know, as well as anything can be known, that these are tbe ones who, whether they occupy public positions or not, will be looked upon as the wise and honorable of their age and generation. l.ndy. What is a Lady? She is anahnouerof good to the needy. The word Lady is an ab breviation of the Saxon -‘ieofday,” or loaf-day, ■which signifies ‘-bread-giver.” The mistress of the manor, at a time when affluent fami lies resided constantly at their country man sions, was accustomed, once a week or otten er, to distribute among the poor a certain quantity of bread. She bestowed the gift with her own hand, and made the hearts of the needy glad by the soft words and gentle ac tions which accompanied her benevolence. The widow and tbe orphan arose up and call ed her blessed: the destitute and afflicted re counted her praises; all classes of the poor embalmeu her in their affections as the ‘-leol day,” the giver of bread and the dispenser of comfort—a sort of ministering spirit in a world oi sorrow. Who is a lady now? qut't’U Victoria’* Visit to America. When in Loudon a few years ago, we were told by a member of the House of Commons, that Queen Victoria had a strong desire to visit this country, and be the first English monarch who ever visited the British posses sions in America. The piints at home and in Canada have from time to time announced such intentions on the part of Victoria. In reference to this subject, one of our American writers, Mrs. Stepens, pays the foliowin g de served tribute to the royal sovereign of Eng land: We hojje slic’d come, from the bottom of oar h;art! Not that we haven’t seen her, or that there is anything very wonderful in her appearance—though, at the time of her mar riage. sculptors did insist that she was as near the V'enus de Medicis as a live woman was ev er known to be. Not that she is in blood and law the sovereign of a great nation, but be cause she is a greater and a better thing—a true w.imau,—wise without an effort to dis play her wisdom—modest in the midst of power—a faithfhl wile, and a fond, discreet mother! This is why we wish to see Victoria in Yankee land; lor with our own weakness regarding royalty, she may render womanli ness, modesty and taithfillness the fashion; and virtues are sometlung, even if caprice ex cites them. The truth is, Victoria is in every respect a perfect gentlewoman, and that is a character which may be studied with great effect in our age. Uepend upon it, however, we shall see no Elizabeth in barbaric splend or, llirting with her statesmen one minute, or cuffing their ears the next; nor wiii she come like the beautiftd Queen of Scots, bewitching ireu to their ruin; nor like Catharine de Me dicis, with her hands red with slaughter. But she will come to us a good woman, whose ex ample the purest girl in our country may foL low and become the better for it. Our "‘strong minded women” may not find in her a great statesman or jurist, but she knows how to submit to superior wisdom; and, though firm in justice, is never obstinate except when she wishes to be merciful. Our fashionables will be mistaken 11 they expect to meet a royal flirt, ready to exhaust herself in a German co tilion, or join iu the indelicacy of a polka; for all these things hare long s'ince been ex cluded from her drawing rooms; but they will find a faithfhl w iie. acquainted intimately with her own children, which should connt some thing in these days of neglected nurseries and easy divorces. In short, Victoria is thorough ly respectable—a thing that cannot be said of all Queens—and we for one would give the brightest rose in the vase before us to see a crowned woman on this side the Atlantic whose heart never swerved to the seductions of the court she rules, and'whom power lias never tempted into arrogance; a sovereign who has uo adverse party, and a lady who, in this slanderous age, has never had a wor j of blame cast on her womanliness. A Kat Trap.—Take a tight barrel, with one bead out; pour a couple of pails full of water inlo it; draw over the top a sheepskin or piece of oil-cloth carpeting, and coniine it by a string drawn around the upper end of the barrel. Cut the skin or cloth from the center, at right angles, to near the walls of the barrel. Smear the centre of the skin or cloth with butler or grease mixed with meal, or, what is better, scent the meal with oil of rhodium. Set up a board from the floor agaiust the top of the barrel tor the rats to walk up on. a little meal upon that will dq 1 no hurt. As they step upon the covering and advance toward the center, suddenly their foundation will give way, and they w'H tall In to the water, from which there is no retreat. If you place a brick cr stone in the band, barely leaving the top of it above water, tbe first' rat that tails In will climb thereupon and set up a cry which will call perhaps the whole family of rats to see what is the matter. As each new-comer enters upon the skin-covered top Of the brrrel, he, too, is as suddenly intro duced to the whereab >uts of his alarmed com panion. In this way several rats may be ta ken in a single night- The trap is a simple one and costs but little. Those who have tried it say it is effectual. Hoist the Flag! Store Re-built l New Goods !

Caution to ibr Public. Every intelligent and thinking person must know that remedies handed out lor general use should have tlieir efficacy established by well tested experience in the hands of a regularly educated physician, whose prejiaratory studies tit 1dm for ail the duties ho must fulfil; yet the country is flooded with poor nostrums and cure-alls, puritortiiig to Ik* the best in the world, which are not only useless, but always injurious. The uniorinnate should be Paeticllae in selecting Ins physicuLn, as it is a lamentable yet incontroverti ble fact, that many syphilitic paticuts are made mis erable with ruined constitutions by maltreatment ‘ from inexperienced physicians in general practice; for ! itisa point generally conceded by the best svphiiogm phers, that the study and management of these come plaints should engross the whole time of those who would be competent and successful in their treat ment and cure. The inexperienced general practi tioner. having neither opportunity nor time to mak himself acquainted with their pathology, commonly pursues one system of treatment, in most cases milk ing an indiscriminate use of that antiquated and dan gerous weapon, the Mercury. Have Cou Alienee. All w'ho have committed an excess of any kind, whether it be the solitary vice of youth, or the sting ing rebuke of misplaced confidence in maturer years, SEEK FOK AX ANTIDOTE IN SEASON. The Pains and Aches, and Lajsitude and Nervous 1 Prostration that may follow Impure Coition, are the Barometer to the whole system. Do not wait for the consummation that is suro to fol low; do not wait for Unsightly Ulcers, for Disabled Limbs, for Loss of Beauty and Complexion.
