PALMJBB. the press. TUESDAY MORNING, APRIL 8,1873. Gossip and Gleanings. Contentment is natural wealth; luxury, ar tificial poverty.—Socrates. It cost a man in Green Bay, Wis., 12,000 to speak ot a woman as “that notorious woman.” A woman who tells fortunes from a tea cup is not necessarily a sauceress. Salvini, the great tragedian of Italy, is com ing over in August. Never say, if you had not these sorrows, that you would bear others better.—Richter. Characters never change. Opinions alter! characters are only developed.—Disraeli. 1 exas has undermined its constitution by fast living, aud wants a new one. Miss Neilson, the English actress, returns to New York from her western tour, May 12. Kerosene is down to 19 cents a gallon in Auburn; which paces suicide within the reach of the poorest. Do grete diligence (saith Salomon) in kep ing of thy lrendes, and of thy good name, for it shall longer abide with thee than any tre sor, be it never so precious. Mayfield, Ky., ladies are such accomplish ed chin musicians that their tongues are fre quently sunburned. Boston thinks the British provinces want to be annexed to that city, with the other outlying territory. At St. Paul, Minn.—the place whither they send people to be cured of catarrhal dis eases—a man recently sneezed his spine out of joint. On hearing of Chaplain Newman’s Intend ed trip round the world, the Courier-Journal for the first time regrets the limited circum ference of this planet. King Lunalilo will visit this country soon; and we hasten to add, in order to allay ap prehension, that he will attire himself accord ing to the American custom. The Washington Chronicle thinks that “Con gressmen ought to feel their oats,” They most frequently give evidence, however, of having been fooling around the juice of corn. The services in an Ohio church a few Sun days ago wera suspended while a young lady horse-whipped a msle member of the congre gation. “I'm so thirsty I” saida boy at work in the corn-field. “Well, work away,” said his in dustrious father. “You know the prophet says, ‘Hoe every one that thirsteth.’ ” A woman in Indiana whose husband was killed by lightning last summer is haunted by h!s ghost whenever she rides out with her new partner in joys and sorrows.

A Louisville practical joker succeeded in imitating a canine growl so perfectly the oth er night, that one of his mostlntimata friends was “April fooled” into perforating him with a charge of buck shot. So conduct thyself in all thy actions and thoughts as if thou wert to die this day. If thou art not ready, to-day, how wilt thou be so, to-morrow ? And how dost thou know that to-morrow will exist for thee 1-Thom as-a-Kempir. The jovous birds, hid under greenwood shade, Sang merrle notes on every branch and bow; The winde (that in the leaves and waters plaid) With murmur sweete, now sung, and, whistled now; Ceased the birds, the winde loud austere made, And while they sung it rumbled soft and low; Thus were it happe or cunning, chance or art, The winde in this straunge musicke bore bis part. —Fairfax. It is consoling to hear that Minister Ban croft is not going to resign. It would be un pardonable fora man so advanced in years of discretion to violate that rule of tenacious ad herence to office which is generally regarded among all enlightened Americans' as one of the chief bulwarks of constitutional liberty.— Commercial Advertiser. One of the most encouraging evidences of advancingcivilization in Omaha is the interest manifested in the public school exhibition by the adult residents’ who are in the habit of taking their whiskey with them and “making a night of it.” They live, they die, like as He doth ordalne, Ne ever any asketh reason why. The hils dne not the lowly dales disdalue; The dales doe not the lofty hils envt.

Entireness, illimitableness is indispensable to faith. What we believe, we must believe wholly and without reserve; wherefore the only perfect and satisfying object of faith is God. A faith that sets bounds to itself, that will believe so much and no more, that will trust thus far and no farther, is none. It is only doubt taking a nap in an elbow chair. —J. C. Hare President Thiers is said to be worth $200, 000, in great part through his writings. Vic tor Hugo is put down for $120,000; “George Sand” for nearly twice as much; Edmund About for $50,000; Victorien Sardon, author 1 of “Rabagas,” for $100,000, and Theophile Gautier died worth $200,000. We have arrived at such an age of precoci ty that it is extremely dangerous to kiss a fe male baby out of arms. Breaches of promise cases and their probable issues are of discuss ed in our nurseries, and visionary judgments of candy are awarded to wronged misses of six, whose too susceptible hearts have been lacerated by the blandishments of some Lo tharios of eight.—San PranclscoNeves Letter. A gentleman who has a fancy for bees hap pened casually to say, a few evenings ago, that he is constructing an apiary in his gar den. What was his astonishment, next day, on receiving from a lady who had not quite understood him, a marmoset monkey and a copy of “Darwin’s Descent of Man,” as her contribution to his new experiment. A young gentleman who has been trying the effect of a nostrum “warranted to pro duce whiskers and mustache on the smooth est face in six weeks,” and obtained by him through the mail from some advertising quack at a distance, has reason to be dissat isfied with the result. Society will not brook a piebald man, and his temporary retirement from the circles erstwhile ornamented by him is imperative. Ctjbe Dogs of Killing Sheep.—If you have a good dog that kills or runs sheep and don’t want to shoot h:m, build a pen sixteen feet square, and run a pole across the top and then pick the largest and oldest buck ol the flock, put him in the pen, get yourr dog with a collar around his neck, and rope to draw up over the middle of the pole, so hat the dog will have his fore feet .wtofing off of th® ? f<7 ^ches. Get out of the pen, and let the buck give him several good butts and then turn him loose. This is a sure cure. I tried it on my father’s dogs when I was a hoy; never knew them to even cross a field where the sheep were grazing. Try it.—Cor. Rural Sun. Recent Publications. I,if* of Srr«rinl 1. w.

Were this “Life” a downright invention, from beginning to end,or a story “founded on fact,” it would rank with Robinson Crusoe, or, on' some accounts, with the Pilgrims' Progress. But when we are told, and have abundant reasons for believing, through a long personal knowledge of the man himself, that Sergeant Ambler is no myth, but a straight forward honest fellow, exceedingly scrupulous and truthful, the hook is a wonder, and the nar rative, crowded with incidents and adventure, told in the simplest lauguage, one of the most agreeable and instructive contributions to our household literature, which has appeared within the last fifty years. A poor motherless boy, and worse than fa therless, without friends or helpers, unable to read or write, goes into a coal mine, after having learned to weave, and there labors in drawing coal two hun dred yards up hill, through a passage on ly three feet high. The scoop, or com was a wagon with small iron wheels running on a railway. It was fastened to the poor boy by a chain passing between his legs and hooking into a broad leather belt, round the waist. The passage way being so low, he bad to creep through it on ail fours, and sometimes through water six inches deep. Here he fell into bad company and learned to curse and swear and finally to drink aa the others did. His grandfather, grandmother and mother were ail Methodists, and from his earliest recollection he was given to prayer. After years of trial, he enlists, undergoes the afflictions of a soldier's life, till he can bear it no longer, deserts, comes to America, throws off bis allegiance to the mother coun try, and begins the world anew, as a weaver at 'iddeford, Maine. Here, the seeds that were dropped into his little heart by a faithful mother, spring up and begin to bear fruit. He became a man of prayer, a preacher of temperance, and a successful recruiting offi.er, without pay, when the great rebellion broke over the land. N t satisfied with this, he learned to write a capital hand, began to study for the minis try, and took to drilling regiment after regi ment, and officers by the score, in the bayon et and broad sword exercise, being a master of botL, and always without pay; a 1 which is proved by the unqualified testimony of such men as Generals McClellan, Burnside, Hooker Meade. Hevena. Covswell. Chamherlaln Vo,. ! senden, Shepley, Dow. Governors Wash burn Goodwin, Clafiin, Padelford and Spea ker Blaine. With these testimonials he is persuaded to go to Washington and ask a pension for suf ferings and sacrifices, in the cause of our country; am' there stays, lingers week after week and month after month, until all his earnings and savings for many years amount ing to nearly two thousand dollars, are all used up in sickness and boarding expenses and for the support of his admirable wife, while he is fed on promises to the last, when he finds himself a beggar, without means to bny a dinner or a nights’ lodging—and without clothes and utterly unable to earu a dollar, on account of a broken wrist, obtained while in the service of his adopted country, without rank or pay! Would such a story be listened to with pa tience were it a mere invention, or only * fouuded on facts?’’ Would not every Amer ican spring to his feet, if these charges were made by a sensationist, a book-moter, or a mere story-teller? What then shall we say, when assured of their truth—of their unquestionable truth? Shall so great a wrong be passed over unre buked ? Are we not all sharers in the guilt of unthankfulncss, and of unqualified injustice. Read the book, and j udge tor yourselves my countrymen. Johx Neal. The Social South. Wiliam P. Frye, member of Congress from Maine, has been down in Virginia; he had intended to go far'.her, but the atmosphere of social life was not invigorating. “The South,’’ he says, and in this he is corroborated by all who know it, “is far behind in the com forts, not to say luxuries, of life; the shiftless ne=s of antebellum days remains, and there is a deep prejudice against Northerners.’’ He found a Maine man who had lived twelve years in Petersburg, by the side of a native Virginian in the same social sphere, so far as pecuniary means and intelligence were con cerned, but without the slightest social recog nition on the part of the Petersburg man and his family. A daughter of the Virginian by mistake went into the house of the Yankee, one day, and wrs compelled by her mother to remove and wash her olothiug. All this would be 6imply ridiculous were It not tor the fact that it prevents, and so long as such feel ing continues will prevent, the restoration of the South to a position in the country to which it is otherwise entitled. The Dative Southerners and the negroes cannot fill up that section, cultivate it, make it prosperous, in a long time. Some few may make fortunes out of cotton; but as a whole there can be no genuine advancement, no republican commu nities, no general prosperity, UDtil this absurd notion of ignoring Northern neighbors is over come. This sentiment is more in the way of the progress of the South than even her enor mous indebtedness- Proper .y might be pur chased with a view to that incumbrance, but no man with any proper self-esteem wUl go into a country where there is a population looking upon him as a degraded being. Two Receipts fob Gettihg into Good Society.—Mrs. L-, of E-Park, was always to be seen everywhere, no matter what difficulty much moie exalted personages ex perienced in getting invitati ms. She was at the marriage of Paul Esterhazv with Lady Sarah Villiers,—the p-ince who dropped £400 worth of diamonds from his jeweled attire whenever he went to a ball,—and saw every thing, though the crowd was so great that no body else could see anything but the person before him. Th's, how ;ver, she contrived to do by getting into the pulpit. To obtain an uvuauuu tu -UMviY juuuuuuuwnjr » uaurequireu jreat tact. “How do you do Iti” asked a friend. Mrs. L— —of E-Park, hesitated :on»iderably before answering the question, but at last answered: “Well I'll tell you. The morning of that ball 1 sent her ladyship a large van full of the most beautiful flowers; and she was so delighted with them that she sent me back a most pressing invitation to come and see how well my flowers looked at night. My garden is my life,” she added, “i nd I never rob that for anybody;” but for twenty five pounds spent in Covent Garden she found she could be asked wherever she pleased. A still cheaper method of receiving good company at one’s own table was adopted by a certain “city man,’’who requested the honor of the Duke of Wellington’s company to meet Marshal Soutt, aDd that of Marshal Soult to meet the Duke of Wellington, although unacquainted with either of them, for he knew that both these illustrious warriors were so fond of “fighting their battles o’er again” with one another that they were sure to accept. And then be invited people to meet Marshal Soult and the Duke of Wellington.—From Recollec tions of Society in France and England, by Lady Clementina Davies. ailCBU.AKEOVS NOTICES. Old Du.
