, Our Creed. TVo lore religion, not the priest— We love our country and our God; We love tlie man who governs least} Not one who rules with iron rod. Each family should be a State, Where all domestic virtues grow ; The heart an empire—then let fate Attempt in vain its overthrow. We love the fiu-mer and his toil, The talismen of life are there : We treasure God's great gift of soul, And His creation fair. We love bright gold that it may strew, Contentment in ihe paths of care: We hate the man who never knew That he could huve too large a share. We love both wit and merit fine, Though poverty their grace unfold ; The diamonds in (lie dirty mine Shine just as bright as set in gold. We love the beautiful, the good— The finished workpf nature's plan, For when these're fully understood, They constitute ihe perfect man. We love in woman, virtue, truth, And know such gems would be les3 rare, If pity for her tender youth, Exposed the tempter's ready snare. Her life is often overcast, And darkness clouds tlie future way; But need the lesson ofthe past, 'Tis darkness tells us what is day. Take off thy sandal, weary time, And lay it at Hie gates—go in, Search for some new and radiant cltmc, TJntainted by the blight of sitt; We wish thy realm as free and wide As make? God's universe our Iiome, That what we love might there abide, And what is hateful never come. San Jfraitrisw ?lrjbu'fecnttiif<s.

He who is wanting in honor towards curl3 and corsets, will invariably attempt to dodge the grocer, tailor aud butcher. Faithlessness to the dimity institution is a sure sign of a want of principle, piety and good bringing up. The difference between a schoolmaster and an engine driver, is that one minds the train, and other trains tlie mind. "I don?t care so much about the hugs," said Mr. Wormly to the head of a genteel private fami. ly in which he resides, " but the fact is, marm, ] hain't got the blood to spare; you see that your- self. The sigh that rises at the thought of a friend may he almost as genial as hia voice. 'Tis breath that seems rather to come from him than from ourselves. The thoughtless and impatient, shut their eyes to danger, rather than labor to avert it. Little acts of kindness, gentle words, loving Bmiies—they strew the path of life with flowers, they make the sunshine brighter, and the green earth greener: and he who bade us "love one another," looks with favor upon the gentle and kind hearted, and he pronounced the meek blessed, Spiders have four paps for spinning their threads, each pap having 1,000 holes; and the fine web itself is the union of 4,000 threads. No spider spins more than four webs, and when the fourth has been destroyed, they go filibustering and seize on the webs of their neighbois. Worth Knowing.—To ascertain the length of a day or night, any time of the year, double the time ofthe sun's rising, which gives the length of the night, and double the time of setting, which gives the length of the day. An affected singer at one of our theatres, the other night, was told by a wag in the gallery " to come out from behind his nose, and sing like other people." A western editor perpetrates the following: " A flock of sheep composed of all 'wethers' may be said to resemble our climate. Abaker has invented a new kind of yeast. It makes bread so light that a pound of it only weighs four ounces. Good locking girls in male attire are dangerous counterfeits. Industry will make a man a purse, and frugality will find him strings for it- Neither the purse nor the strings will cost him anything. He who has it should only draws the strings as frugality directs, and he will be sure always to find a useful penny at the bottom ot it. Three things to be pitied: a henpecked husband, a child with a drunken father, and a wife with a brutal partner. In private conversation between intimate friends the wisest men very often talk the weakest. "Little boys should be seen and not heard," as the boy said when he could not recite bis lesson. A ruined debtor having done his utmost to satisfy his creditor,1), said to them, "Gentlemen, I have been extremely perplexed till now how to satisfy you; but having dune my utmost endeavor, I shall leave you to satisfy yourselves." A dog, which had lost the whole of its interesting family, was seen trying to poke apiece of crape through the handle of a door of one of the Philadelphia sausage shops. A man who is furnished with arguments from the mint, will convince his antagonist much sooner than one who draws them from reason and philosophy. If to do wore as ea?y as to know what were good to be done, chapels would have'been churches, and poor men's cottages princes' palaces, A fool in high station is like a mm on the top of a high mountain—everybody appears smr.ll to him, and he appears small to every body ell A parson reading the funeral service at the grave, forgot the sex ofthe deceased, and askin one ofthe mourners, an Emeralder, "ia this a brother or a sister?" "Neither," replied Pat, "only a cousin." God, who is liberal in all His other gifts and favors, is sparing in the distribution of Lime, never allowing us two moments at command. He gives but the second a.-! He takes away the first, and leaves us in absolute uncertainty whether the third shall ever be ours or not. An old Vermont lady was asked by a young clergyman to what deuo ^nation she belonged? " I don't know," said she, " and dont care anything about nominations ; for my part, I hold on to the good old rneetin' house.''

Far..back, in ages past, The plough with wreaths was crowned, The hand ; of kings and sages Entwined the chaplet round ; Til! men of spoil Disdained the toil By which the world was nourished, And blood and pillage were the soil In whieh their laurels flourished. Now the world her fault despairs— The guilt that stains her glory, And weeps her cares amid the cares That formed her earliest glory. The thrones shall crumble, The diadems shall wane, The tribes of earth shall humble The pride of those who reign, And war shall lay His pomp away. The fame that heroes cherish The glory earned in deadly fray,. Shall fade, decay and perish. Honor waits all o'er the earth, Through endless generations— The art that calls the harvest forth, And feeds the expectant nations. " HOE OUT YOUR. ROW." One lazy day a farmer's boy Was hoeing out the corn, And moodily he listeued long To hear the dinner horn. The welcome blast ho heard at last, And down he dropped his hoe, But the good man shouted in his ear, " My boy, hoe out, your row 1" Although a '" hard one" was the row, To use a ploughman's phrase, And the lad, as sailors have it, Beginning well to "haze"— " I can," said be, and manfully He seized again his hoe, And the good man smiled to see , The boy hoe out the row. The lad the text remembered, And proved the moral well, That perseverance to the end At last will nobly tell. Take courage, man ! resolve you can, And strike a vigorous blow ; In life's great field of varied toil Always hoe out your row. A New Sugar Plant. Mr. Wray, an American gentleman residing in Paris, in a communication to the London Times. describes a new plant ofthe sugar-caue species called the "Imphee," the cultivation of which seems deslined to bring about a revolution in the production of sugar. The New York Post says: The Chinese variety of this plant, called the ••'Shorgo/'is mentioned by Mr. Fortune in his work on China ; and in 184-i Capt. Swinboi-n imported into England some seeds of it; but in 1852. the Geographical Society of Fr'aSaoe received from M. deMoutigay, consul-general at Sbatighai, a parcel of these valuable seeds, Which, with characteristic sagacity, were immediately distributed to the moSt distitigtnshec-'agriculturist's and agri" cultural societies of France, and by tham carefully Cultivated, with' beneficial results. A far more valuable species, however, is the "Zulu Italia." of which Mr. Wray has fifteen varieties, collected iu Caffreland. Sugar manufactured from these plants was first imported into Europe in the beginning of 1854. These imphee> vary in time of growth from seventy-five to one hundred and thirty days, the most precocious requiring only from seventy five to ninety ifays: to arrive at maturity, others, again, ninety to one hundred days, aud so ou up to the gigantic "Bim- pis-clm-a-pa," which requires one hundred and thirty days and reaches a height of thirt.-en feet* The Chinese imphee, on the other hand even in the luxuriant soil and climate of Algeria does not ripen in less than one hundred and sixty days, and is less full of juice than the Caffre variety. To this it is principally owing that the great efforts made by the French chemists and agriculturists to obtain ciystalized sn^ar from the juice of the Chinese variety, have hitherto so signally failed, and as they are obliged to conturity and a peculiar process of manufacture, which Mr. Wray has already patented in many countries, insure the most complete crystaliz.tion of the concentrated juice, and the sugar obtained from it cannot be distinguished from tbe cane sugar of the West Indian colonies, which it equals in every respect' The Imphee yields from one to two and a half tons of sugar per acre, according to the quality ot the soil and the character of the climate, besides excellent grain and molasses: and in som departments of France the earliest varieties yit'ld two crops in the year from the same sowing. The grain furnishes a good meal, and the stalks excellent fodder for cattle;: while its rapidity of growth (at the rate of about twelve inehes a week) is marvelous. Mr. Wray had for a long time been laboring to introduce the culture of this plant in France, aud has now considerable plantations in four of the southern departments, which fortunately have n'ot been much injured iiy the recent inandations. Official information has just been received from: Gudaloupe showing -that the im- phee'introduction by him into that island has yielded four full crops'is out year from the same sowing. Mr. Wray haV j-nst received a communicatibn from tbe Viceroy of Egypt,-offer.ng Mm ten thousand hectares of land- fur experimeutiug with this new. plant within his dominions.' BOTTIEK DE PAKIS.

ANDREAS DOMTNGUEZ. «rj20—*f JSSUSMa,COTAdBDOMJ.NGUEZ. Rain and Snow.—There has beec considerable rain and some snow in Plumas county duriug the past week. The Yuba river is reported to be slightly swullen in consequence. A New A*rl,;«ii Grnlu. A grain,1 called the " fundi," cultivated in some of the districts ol the colony of Sierra Leone, has lately been described in Chambers's Edinburgh Journal, and brought to the notice of European agriculturists for the first tithe. It is a slender graa't* with digitate spikes, and grows to the height of about eighteen inches. The ear consists of two conjugate spikes, the grain being arranged'on the outer edge of either spike, and alternated; the grain is attached by a short peduncle to the husk, from which it is easily separated. The grain, which is heart- shaped, and about the size of mignionette-seed, is covered by a thin fawn-colored membrane, and when freed from this membrane is whitish, and semi-transparent. It is highly glutinous, and has a' delicate flavor, between that of rice and kiln-dried oats.' When ripe, it is cut down, tied up in small sheaves and placed in a dry situation; for, if allowed to remain on the ground and to get wet, the grains become agglutinated to their coverings. The grain is trodden out with, the feet, and is then parched or dried in the sun to allow of the more easy removal of the outer membrane in the process of pounding, which is performed in wooden mortars. It is afterwards winnowed with a kind of a cane fanner on mats. The Europeans and negroes connected with the colony generally stew it in a close sauce-pan, wiih fowl, fish, or mutton, asmall piece of salt pork being added for the sake of flavor. This is said to innke a very good dish. Sometimes it is made into puddings, and eaten either hot or cold with milk. The grain appears to be quite as delicate as arrow root, while it possesses a more agreeable flavor than sago, potato, starch, and other simple preparations. Beauty op the Spanish Wo.vkn.—A young German diplomatist, long a resident at Madrid in a work recently published, thinks the Spanish women very beautiful. " Asa general impression, I should say there is more beauty both of face and figure, to be seen here than in any other capital ; but that the toilet in Paris is more tasteful. In London there is, perhaps, a greater air of high breeding in the higher circles, but incomparably less grace. No such feet and figure were ever seen at St, James, nor, in spite of all Ihe accessories of dress, at the TuUeries, A French woman and graceful tournufe is the result of art, education and the toilet. An English woman's elegance proceeds from her high breeding and pur sang. But the grace of the Spanish women is pure nature. Nowhere can such eyes be seen as in Spain, whether for size, color or expression. As an English' woman advances in years she generally grows thin ; the Spanish SeHora is apt to become uu- wi'eldly ; the oue contracts, the other expands; an3 the expansion system, though it must be in- cebvenient, preserves the beauty of the face to a latter point of life." A" priuter, in setting up the sentence—"We are but parts of a stupendous whole," by the mistake of a lettcivmade it read—" We are but parts of' a stupendous whale," " Pn all contention," says Sydney Smith, "let peace be rather your object than triumph.' Value triumph only as the means of peace." - _■_*! — Is not every face beautiful in on" eyes, which habitually turns towards us with affectionate guileless smiles ? The siia is like God, sending abroad life, beauty and happiness; and the stars like human souis, lor all their glory comes from the sun. The Scottish dialect is' never more espres'sive than when a hot forenoon is spokeu of as a "'simmer morn." It is said that a mixture of honey with the purest charcoal will make the teeth white as snow. The parent who would train up a child ir/the way it should go, must go in the way he would train up his chiid. Example is before precept. Good nature, like a bee, collects its honey from every herb. Ill nature, like a spider, sucks poison from the sweetest flower. There is a man iu Connecticut who has such a hatred to anything like monarchy, that he won't wear a crown on his hat. " Grandmother," said a child on returning from Sunday school one fiue morning, '■ is the Bible true?" "Certainly," replied the old lady, " but why do you ask ?" "Because,", replied the juvenile, ''it says that every hair of our head is numbered, and so I pulled out a handful to-day, and there wasn't a number on- one of them." *' What heresy!" exclaimed the old lady, aud she lamteu clean stiff stone dead r.n the floor. A horse dealer, who lately effected a sale, was offi-red a bottle of porter to confess the animal's tailings. The bottle was di'mik, and then he said thu horse had but two faults. When turned loose iu the field he way hard lo catch, and ho was of no use when caught.- A small piece of paper or liueu, moistened w^Uh spirits of turpentine, and put into a bureau or wardrobe for a single day, two or three tunes a year, is a sufficient preservative against moths. Cattle.—A drove of cattle from Los Angeles, numbering nine hundred, head, passed through Marysville on Sunday morning, en route for Feather River. Stbat Shot.—It is with ideas as with pieces of money, those of the least value generally circulate the most. A man, for being told the truth, thenksyou the first time—votes you a bore the second—aud quarrels with you the third. A French woman taliks a great deal more than she thinks—an English woman thinks a great I deal more than she talks. Forms.—A m%n may look at a pawe of glass, or through it, or both. Let all earthly things be unto thee as glass, to see heaven through.- Religious ceremonies shc-uid be pure glass,-not dyed-iu the gorge us cnuisous and purple blues aud- greens ot drapery oi saints and sainleSses. HoMtEorATHic Globdlbs.—I'd tbe well'-breddoc tor, all balnea are angels. A dead wail never looks so dead, aa when there is a row of orokeu medicine bottlus o.. the top ol it! A man may have the " 'constitution of a horse.-" but that is no reason why a doc-or should treat him like au ass. We sooti grow tired of the medicine we take ourselves, but somehow it doesn't seem to be tlie cares with the medicine we give toothers. It would almost appear as if there was an in burn desire in the bean of every mau to physic another ! Three Weelu Later froitt An»ii-u!ih.

The establishment of telegraphic lines throughout the entire Cobbles is attracting much alten-" tion. It is proposed that the wire shall be extend*' td across Asia to the ''mouth or the Amaor, thence along the coast of China to the Eastern Arch i pel a* go. and to meet another line from Eurupa at Sin- Sapoi-e. | Meteors. There is no room left for the entertainment of the question, whether ponderous manses do sometimes get precipitated to the ground when meteors fall, very weighty proof's, indeed, have beta afforded of the fact. A friar was killed by a stone cast out ot a meteor'that visited Crema in 1511 ; another, a Franciscan monk, was killed in the same way at Milan in 1650 ;>and two Swedish sailors met with a similar fate oh shipboard in 1674. A meteoric stone was seen to' fall at Agram, in 1751, aud was dug from the ground, into which it had burrowed IS feet deep. Others have frequently been disinterred fro lit a depfh of frd^Ji six to twelve feet. A stone seven feet and a half across,- fell at Otumpn. On the year in which Socrates was born, a meteoric stone was cast to the ground ia Thrace, which had the bulk of two' millstones, and formed a complete wagon load.' The meteor of Angers, on the Oth of June, 1822. and which left a 1 ami nous tiaiti and cloud track behind it in the sky—like the one seen on the "tli'of January in the south of England, in the present year—de-' posited ashower of stones, with loud detonation",- 68 miles north of Poitiers. These substantial con- sequencesa of meteoric apparitions' are called airolitcs. The meteoric stone is composed oi* rarioua'mineral ingredients which are identical with matters of familiar occurrence upbnthe earth,but amidst these, iron is found in great abundance as it never is found on the'earth—'that in, iu' a native state." The surface of the tcrblit'e'al ways' has a pitch black glazed appearance.' A perfectly vitrified or enamelled crust, something less than a tenth of an inch in thickness, covering the inner substance, and separated from it by a clearly marked line.' Thfe flame of the meteor is evidently more fierce than that of the hottest p..rcelaiu furnace, for this is altogether ineffibient' for" the production of any such perfect proeeaffof glacing as'the aii-olite exhibits. Meteoric stones baVe' been found to be very hot when discovered in tlie ground, and som* have retained their high temperature for hours. The River Amooii..—This maguificent liver, which runs through' the lower part of the Russian possessions/and' eiriptiss' into' the head of the Gul? of Tartary. is navigable seventeen hundred miles fromits mouth to the city of Nurlhink, tin- capital of Southern! Siberia. The country is' densely populated, and great results are anticipated by some adventurers, who propose opening' » communication between our Pacific possessions and the Russian Asiatic territory. Two succesn- ful voyages Irom San Francsco to this river have already been made, and the steamship America, the first oi a line of steamers to run between these points, cleared port on the 10th of June last. The Use of Rain.—Every inch'of rain that fall*' oh a roof yields two barrels to every space teu ieet square: aud severity-two barrels are yielded by the annual rain in this climate on a similar surface. A barn thirty or forty feet yields annually liSf barrels. This is enough for more thau: two barrels ad-ay for every day in the year.- Many of our landlords have, however, at least five times the amount of roofing on their dwellings aud ether buiidiugs, yieldiug;auuual!y more than four thousand barrels of rain water—twelve barrels, or about one hunral and fifty ordinary pails- lull daily. ^___ The earliest record of oeedie -baking iu England (says an English journal), is in the year 1545, inthe reign of Henry VIII., and it ia supposed this useful branch of industry was ictro- ducedby a negro from Spain. The historian Stow* telis us'that needles were £old in Cheapsidc and other busy streets in London in the reign of Queen Mary, and were at that lime made by a Spanish negro, who refused to disclose the secret of liii art. Another authority states that ihe ,-rt of making steel needles was lost at the negro's death, but was afterwards revived by a German in 1566. 1'ropably these facts may account for ihe crest of che needle-rnuker'scoat ol anus being the head of' auegrrf.

TVo lore religion, not the priest—
We love our country and our God;
We love tlie man who governs least}
Not one who rules with iron rod.
Each family should be a State,
Where all domestic virtues grow ;
The heart an empire—then let fate
Attempt in vain its overthrow.
We love the fiu-mer and his toil,
The talismen of life are there :
We treasure God's great gift of soul,
And His creation fair.
We love bright gold that it may strew,
Contentment in ihe paths of care:
We hate the man who never knew
That he could huve too large a share.
We love both wit and merit fine,
Though poverty their grace unfold ;
The diamonds in (lie dirty mine
Shine just as bright as set in gold.
We love the beautiful, the good—
The finished workpf nature's plan,
For when these're fully understood,
They constitute ihe perfect man.
We love in woman, virtue, truth,
And know such gems would be les3 rare,
If pity for her tender youth,
Exposed the tempter's ready snare.
Her life is often overcast,
And darkness clouds tlie future way;
But need the lesson ofthe past,
'Tis darkness tells us what is day.
Take off thy sandal, weary time,
And lay it at Hie gates—go in,
Search for some new and radiant cltmc,
TJntainted by the blight of sitt;
We wish thy realm as free and wide
As make? God's universe our Iiome,
That what we love might there abide,
And what is hateful never come.
