I have also caused it to be mixed withstareli, in the application to linen, and, in both instances, have no hesitation in saying, that it is equal to the article of which it must soon become a popular substitute, hi the first form, the Indian Department is permitted thcprivilege of its Brat official use. It will be seen thut itsadbeaiou or glutinous qualities cannot beexe lied; as I have sealed up the box with it, and will use it ou the outward envelope.

Ttira=! mid-winter ** the ground was slightly cov- erel with snow, which a chilling north wind had been (lrifiing in fcath:-ry ííukes all d-.iy. The tn.-c, were stripped of thpir green foliage and looked dreary; the ground was strewn v.-itli the sear ami yellow loaf, but the gloomy ¡ace of nature did not present a more melancholy scene than the interior ofthe little cottage which stood nestling beneath tho.-o large leafless trees. 1 was then but ten years of age; but the scene I am trying to picture is as ire h yet in my memory a!s if it was but yesterday. In a coffin in a corner o ¡'the room lay the form of my fal her. My mother gathered her little orphans around it. to look, for tne last time, upon that dear lace. Oh I how well do I remember her heart-break- íag sobs, the scalding tears that traced each other down her pale chw.-ks as she kissed hi;- smik¡;n e'.:>'ik. n,nésmoothed back the damp hair from his cold b,,i>w. amt boM u -, in broken acwwtft. Btitfled by boI*, thai, we ""ere fatherless; tltat henceforth A:. no one to support our weakness but a poor, feeble mother, and bade us look to God for help. Oh! how my heart ached as I looked forward to the future ; all looked dark and dreary ; but the coilin lidw=as shutdown and ali that remained of my father W=ás conveyed to its hist resting place. Tlie clods fell upon tiie coffin with a hollow sound that Chilled the life-blood in my veins. The grave was filled up, and soon was covered over with grass and flowers. The muddy waves of life again ebbed and flowed ; my young heart, too, again began to smile within mybnast. 1 was evc-n happy, and began to forget the solemn lesson I had learned. Years rolled around, bringing surprising changes With each successive day. but I heeded them not, forraeh revolution ofthe wheel of time, brought me nearer to maturity, and the hearts of children always have the future pictured in brightest colors. At length the diminishing aspect of our resources and the failing health of toy motheradmonishedu-, to try and replenish our purse, and also to i>egain her ha-nlxh, braving a journey across the barren plains, to run the risk of sickness and perhaps death, to withstand hardship aud privation. I left ih home of'my childhood, the companion'of my youth and ail the endearments of social life and youthfui pleasure. We voyaged onward, faltering not in our course, until Death marked to himself another victim irom oor little band. The venerable protector of my Childhood—-her. whose careful attention had been ihe solace for every sorrow, she was struck down by the sickle of Death. J saw his traces on her lips and brow. I saw the blow was descending but had not power to avert it. She, too, was dead! The last link broken, the last bond 5 00 riven, the last hope blasted! We laid her to rest I on the slope of the mountain. No shroud enveloped her form, no coffin, but a rude Imdx ; no lontglioe of mourners ; no marble slab to point out theplace to tiie passer-by. But, yet. how clearly aud distinctly do I remember the spot! The wolves howl their niournftll d'rges over her head, the bird:-, hi; panhi't* grave aud warole forth asougas gladly as if no heavy hearts o'er stood beside that little mound ; the low night wind whispers calmly around: the grasáis green, and the flowers ofeveryhue cast their delicious fragrance about. The travel-worn emigrant steps a:-ide to see who lies ourie I the» : he reads the initials rudely carved on a plain board, the only tribute affection could rear there.,and passes quietly away. Oh! how little doe- he know of tiie scaldmg ¡car- mat íeü there—atribútelo a lost friend and mother! My eyes may never again rest npon that spot. but memory will make many a weary pilgrimage thither. You who have wept for a mother, know well how to sympathise with mc; you who are blessed with a mother, neverwound her feelings by a hasty, cruel word : obey her precepts, imitate her example, reverence her above all eerLhly ihitiL's.— First your God and thea your Mother.— Golden Era. 10 00 2 50 5 00 5 00 5Q ntj 20 00 20 00 . 00 10 00 Medical Use op Salt.—Tu many cases-of disor- d¿í *ed stomach, a teaspoonful of salt is a certain cure. In the voilent internal aching, termed chol ic, add a teaspoonful ofsalt to a pint of cold wafer, drink it and go to bed, it is one .of the speediest r.-medies known. The same will revive a person who seems almost dead from receiving a very heavy fall, &&. Iu an apopleet!c fit, no time should be lost ii pouring down salt and water, if sufficient sensibility remain to allow of swallowing ; if not, the head must be sponged with water until the sense return when-a't will completely restore the patient from the lethargy. In many cases of severe blending at the lungs, and when other remedies fail, Pr. Rush, found two teaspoonfuls ofsalt completely stayed the blood. In case of bite from a mad" dog* wash the part with strong brine for au hour, then bind ou some salt with a rag. In toothache, warm salt and water held to the part, and renewed two or three times will relieve iu most cases. If the gums be affected, wash the mouth with brine : if they le covered with tartar, wash them twice a day with salt and water. In swelled neck, wash the part with brine, and drink it also twice a day until cured. Salt will expel worms, if used in food in a moderate degree, and aids digestion; but salt meat is injurious if used much.— Scientific Aimrican. Woman.—As the dove will clap its wings to its side, and cover and conceal the arrow that is preying on its vitals, so it is the nature of won.iau to hide from ihe world the pangs of wounded affection. With her the desire ofthe heart has failed. The great charm of existence is at an end. She neglects all the cheerful exercises that gladden the spirits, quicken the poise, ar.d send the tide of life in healthful currents through the veins. Her rest is broken ; the sweet refreshment of sleep is poisoned by melancholy dreams, " dry sorrow drinks her blood.,'" until her feeble trame sinks under the last external assailant Look for her after a little while, and you find friendship weeping over her untimely grave, and wondering that one who but lately glowed with all health and beauty, should now lie brought down to "darkness and the worm."' You will be told of some wintry chill, some slight indisposition that laid her low. but no one knows the mental malady that previously sapped her strength, and made her so easy a prey to the spoiler.— Washington Irving.

A Little IIvshaxd UtiULTTfLB Wife.—The Sati- _sl_t Rcgislei is responsible for this. Two little children—a boy and girl, aged four aud three years r.'speciively. were missed by their families. u:.d considerable alarm existed. Persons were om in all directions aud the bell-ringer had been sent for, when, passing a thicket of bushes in the garden, tlte mother thought she heard low voices near.— Pulling away ihe leaves tliere mme the truants, with their night clothes on. loek"diii one e.notin-r's arms and very comfortably stowed away for the night.

The denouncement was fo comical that it was eo iclnd'd to let the babies fie married tmi.1 they bad a felling oul.wlrcli occurred the next day. and now tin y live apart—a roiw-ited man and wife. Pi.axt Tkfes.—Plant tliem by the roadside piiwit them in yards, streets, lanes, lots—every where you can find room for a tree to give shad' or bear fruit. Now—this very day—is the right time to plant trees. There is no better time than now to plant hardy fruit trees, and every hundred dollars that may be spent in plant ng such trees along the highway, of a farm that has 3 pa - lie travelled road running through it wil aid a thousand dollars to the seliiug price of that far twenty years hence. Take up large trees, w th plenty of roots, and plant them as though you intended them to grow, and they will grow. Pexm-AUTv.—A counnittee of eight j*sjeuileinen had appointed to meet ;at 12 o'clock. Seven of th. in were punctual: but the eighth came bustlia; in with a polo ik's for being a quarter of an hour behind the time: "The time" sad he. '___* d away without my being aware of t; I had no idea of it being so i ate," &c. A Quaker present said, "l-'riend, I am not clear that we should admit thy apology.

If you want to fall in love with a girl, don't 'commence flirting with her. Tliis courting lor fun is like boxing lor jfun.
