Which knells the passing hour, B'lt art ne'er found, nor mind conceived. The life-clock's magic power. Nor set in gold, nor decked with gems.

When life's deep stream, 'mid beds offlowers, All still and softly glides, Like the wavelet's step, with a gentlfi beat. It warns of passing tides. When passion nerves the warrior's arm, For deeds of hate and wrong. Though heeded not the fearful sound. The knell, is deep and strong. When eyes to eyes are gaz'ng soft. And tender words are spoken, Then fast and wild it rattles on. As if with love 'twere broken. Such is the clock ihat measure's life, Of flesh and spirit blended.

More than this he had a certain regard for her happiness which made him already feel half ashamed of his decision, but like maiw oilier men who have more obstinacy than wisdon, he could not bear to retract anything., and above all to be convinced that he wrong by a woman. However, with a commendable wish to remove the unhappiness he had caused, he suggested that as the papers were carefully saved, and as she had found them interestiiiEr- she could read 'em all over again, beginning at January, and taVing one a week, clear through the would just come out even.' iie concluded, as if it were a singular fact that they should do so. Notwithstanding this admirable propo- sition, he still felt some uneasiness.- It followed him as he walked up the pleas- ant lane to the' pasture, and it made him speak more sharply than was his wont, if the cows stopped while he Was driving them hoinCr to crop the grass where it all the puling epithets of clearest, love, and j greenest and sweetest on the darling, so lavishly uttered in a long past sunny slope- It troubled him till he courtship. heard his wife call him to supper in such Very pleasant was this retrospect to-1 cheerful tone that he concluded she didn't hundred a year out of the rocky, farm.' 'It does pay fur a good deal of head said she; to see how different things look from what they did then.' Now I'm going to figure up how much we've said Mr. HEATH; 'don't make a noise with your knittin' needles, 'cause it puts me out.' His wifg laid down her knitting- in pei-- feet good humor, and gazed out over the j broad, rich fields of waving grain which grew so tall around the laden apple trees {that they looked like massive piles of fo- liago. Hearing her name thus kindly j spoken, led he thoughts far back to the past; for after the lapse of twenty-five years, the simple sound of the name she bore in youth, means more to a wife than MILLICEXT HEATH. The picture of the past had on it some rough places and some hard trials, but no domestic strife or discontent marred its sunny There were smiling faces on children's faces, without which no life pic- care all. much about the newspaper, after About a week after this, as Mr. HEATH was mowing- one morning, he was sur- prised to see his wife come out, dressed as if for. a visit. I'm said she, 'to ture is beautiful. Soft blue eyes shined J spend the day with Mrs. with unclouded gladness, and wavy hair I left plenty for you to ea1..' And so say- floated carelessly ovcrunwrittenforeheads, i ing, she walked rapidly on. She forgot fora moment how they were Mr. HEATH thought about it just long changed, and almost fancied herself again enough to say to himself she don't go the young, mother; and tiny hands stole visitin' to stay nil day once a year hardly, lovingly over her bosom, and young heads and'tis strange she should go in liay- i nestled there as of old. The illusion time.' vanished quickly and she sighed as she thought of her youngest bornr the reckless boy who had left her three 3-ears before, for a home ou the sea. Once only had tidings reached her of the wanderer. The Ver lon the day seemed to him to go in for luncheon, dinner and supper and have no body to speak to to find every- thing so still. The old clock seemed to tick stiller than usual, he thought; the letter spoke of hardship and homesickness, j brood of pretty white chickens that in that light nnd careless way that reach-' almost always peeping round the door, had es the mothers heart, more surely than re- wandered off somewhsre, and left it pining ami To know that he stiller yet he even missed the busy click I'm he said to himself, as he be- gan to look down the road at sunset. that j MII.LICENT don't go a visitin' all the time as some women she is just j corning.' How tired you said he, as she j came why didn't you speak about it. and I'd have harnessed up and come after you.' 'I'm not very she answered; but her looks belied her indeed, her hus- band declared she looked tired like for a clay or two after. What was his amazement to see her so away the next Tuesday, in the same manner as before, without .saying much about it before she started. To his great dissatisfaction, everything seemed that day to partake of his wife's new propensity for going a way from home. A man don't want cold feed in hay grumbled he as he sat down alone to din- ner. In ihe same grumbling mood he re- counted the mishaps of the morning, which seemed to have been much after the man- ner set forth in a certain legend of old time, for he embellished his recital by al- lusion to The she.'p's in the meadow, The cow's ia the corn." Adding that have been there if Mrs. HEATH had been at home, because she'd have seen 'em before they got in and hollered. She would have seen the oxen too, before ihey got across the river, and saved him the trouble ot'j getting them back. But after tracing all these untoward events to her absence, he said to himself consolingly, I guess she Won't go any more, for she always was a home body.' Mrs. HEATH did go ngnin though, and again, and the day she went for the fourth time, her husband look council with him- self as to what he should do to stop this gadding.' Seated on the door step in the shade of the old trees, ho spent an hour or two in devising ways and measures, talking aloud all the time, and having the satisfaction of hearing nobody dispute him. 1 It's hard to know of her gettin' to be a j visitin' said he, and it's clear it j ain't right. 'Keep her at I've read in the Bible, (old RICHARD'S Bible knowledge was somewhat confused, and his quotations varied slightly from the scriptural phrase keepers at but it says he added, with the true sci- ence of a sincere man, thst husbands must set great store by their wives and treat 'em well. I wont scold MILLICEXT I'll harness up and go after her to-night, and comin' home I'll talk it over with her, and tell her how bad it makes me feel; and if that dou't do, something else.' In accordance with his praiseworthy resolution, he might have been seen about sunset hitching- his horse at Mr. BROWN'S door, for, strange enough, Mrs. HEATH'S visits had all been made atthc same place. Going up to the door he stopped in a- mazement at seeing his wife in tfie kitch- en just taking off a great woolen wash a- pron, and putting down her sleeves, which had been rolled up as if for He listened and heard her say, as she took some money from Mrs. BROW.N, It wont be so that I can do your washing again.'- 'It has been a great favor to have you do it white I've been so poorly.' answer- ed Mrs. BROWX, 'and I am glad to pay you for makes four times, and here's two dollars. 'Tis just as well I that you can't come again, for I think I i shall be well enough now to my- i 'Two the price of the exclaimed Mr, HEATH, as the truth flashed across him. Rather a silent ride home they had, till at last he said, I never was so ashamed.' 'Of ask-ed his wife. to have you go out washin.' I aint so poor as that come' to.' 'Well'I don't know, when a- man is too- poor to take a newspaper, his wife ought not to feel above going out re- plied Mrs. HEATH. Nothing more was said on the' subject at that time, through some ill feeling lin- gered in the hearts of each. The 'ma- king up' was no mawkish scene of kiss-- ing.-embracing, and crying, such as ro- mance writers build their useless fabrics- with but as Mrs. HEATH was finishing her household duties for the she .said qoietly I don' 'think I did quite right, RICH- ARD.' I doift think I. did, responded the husband and so the spark was quen- ched which might have became a scath- ing flame, blighting all domestic peace under their humble roof. At last the long voyage is almost end- ed, the sailors talk only of home They talk of those they are to meet, of the wives and children, to whom their thoughts have so often wandered during these three vear's won- der if the vounr sailor. ALFREP, who lies sick, will ever see his home again; and with their rough tones, almost subdued to gentleness, they speak of his anxiety to see his mother. He is so hopelessly ill that itis heart is now where the worn spirit ever turns in its hour of bitterest sorrow or its approach to the God and his moth- er. Paintlv as his heart beats, it still i i throbs with earnest-desire for life. Dim j as his keen eye has became, he fancies it would brighten once more at the sight of his mother, and his failing mind.'be clear- ed could he lean on her breast. With folded hands the young sailor prays his words are confused and indis- tinct to those who listen, but all clear, all earnest and plain are they to the Great Listener. And when the stately ship has reached her destined port, and mingling voices are all around the sick sailor, his comrades bear him carefully to a a miserable better to him than the rocking vessel in the mit'st of the sounding sea. Now if I could see mother' he mur- mured to the strangers around him. She is by the vine covered win-1 dow, patiently reading the shipping jour-1 nal, and thinking meanwhile of her absent i boy thinking it is time for him to return, and hoping that he will never go to sea again. How quick the words catch her Arrived Ship Banner, And it was a week ago lie could have been at home by this time he will come she said as she went to communicate the good news to her husband. They watched in vain for him that night, and then Mrs. HEATH suggested what no mother ever failed to suggest when the prolonged absence of a child was unaccounted he must be and when night after night passed, and they neither saw nor heard anything of ALFRED her anxiety would let her rest no longer. 'We will go to him, or at least go where we may hear of and Mr. HEATH, now as anxious as herself, read- ily assented. Their simple preparations for the journey were soon made.and with heavy hearts they proceeded in search of their son, with little hope of gaining any- thing more satisfactory than definite intel- ligence of his death. It was a dark and rainy evening when they entered the city, and after an hour spent in fruitless enquiries, they found the place to which ALFRED had been carried. Little care had he received in the crowd- ed boarding Was none of the neatness and order that shows better in a. sick room than anvwhere else. o hands had roughly tended him, and pale and death-like as lie looked, it seemed as if it mattered little what care he had now. In the agony with which the parents bent over the unconcious sleeper, and. marked the sunken cheeks and wasted form, there was but one ray of comfort; they could watch over should not hear of his death with the sacl thought that none but stranger's hands had smoothed his dying pillow. The sufferer awoke from a troubled dream, to find his aching head supported by hi? father, and see his malher's eyes resting upon him with a look of unuttera- ble tenderness. So faint was the smile of recognition with which negreeted them, that only a parent's eye could have caught the flitting expression. 'Uan't live, can't said the doctor, with professional carelessness, as he en- tered the house the next morning. 'But his mother has said the landlady. That alters the case, lie may get up answered the doctor, than whom, none knew better how much a mother could do. But how frail seemed the thread that held that young and promising life. For days it quivered and treiftbled with the lightest breath, and the mother tearfully- prayed that it might not be broken.- A. gentle care' and kindly watching as ever blessed a sick be'd, had young ALFRED HEATH, ami no-x in vain1 j gradually he grew better, and was able to talk with' his parents, and ask them how' fney chanced to come to him in that hour of need1'. It was in the said Mr. HEATH 'just four words in the paper told us that your ship had conve. You didn't conre home, and so we came to see if you was sick. You'll soon be well enough' to go home, my God be' he added' for sending us to lake'care of you.' At length ALFRED was prouounced well e-.vough to ride, and in a few days the. old homestead gladdened his siffht. How beautiful it looked as the sen shone on the Tin'es in which it was with their, wealth of grapes, just purpling in the autumn sunshine. one seemed so joyful as Mr. HEATH, who after being gladdened by hearing' AL- FRED say he would never go to sea again, expressed his opinion of newspapers in general, and his newspaper in particular, on this wise I'm so glad, MH.I.ICF.XT, that you took i that paper, for I counta newspaper just the most necessary thing1- in a family.

H. j To Preserve We condense the following recipe for preserving butler from one of our exchan- ges. Itis said to be mucii used in Goslien, Orange County N. Y.r a place famous for its superb butler. Composition Take of sugar one part of nilrc, one part; and of the best Spanish great salt, (or rock" two parts. -whole into a fine powder, mix them well as-d put- them by for use. Of this composition one ounce should be put to every sixteen ounces of butler; mix this salt thoroughly with' the butter as soon asit has been fresdTrom the milk, and put it without loss of time, down into the vessel prepared- to receive' it, pressing it so 'close as to leave' no air holes or any kind of cavities within it. Smooth the surface, and if you 'expect it will be above a day or trt'o before )-otf can add more, cover it up close will) a piece of clean linen, and that a piece of wetted parchment, or for waii't of that, fine linen that has been dipped in melted butter, exactly fitted to the edges of the vessel all round, so as to exclude'- air as much as possible, without the1 as- sistance of any watery brine; when more butter is to be added, those coverings are' to be taken off, and the butter applied close above the former, pressing il down and smoothing it as before, and so on till the vessel is full. When it is quite let the two covers be spread over it wiflv Jhe' greatest .care, and let a little melted butter be poured all round the edge, so as to fill up every cranny, and effectually exclude the air. A little salt may then bestrewed over the whole and the cover be iixed down to remain close shut till it be ed for use. If all this be cijrtfully done, the butler may be kept perfectly sound in this climate for how many 1 ca-n.not lull bull have seen it two- years old, and in every respect as sweet and sound as it was when only a month old.. Butler cured in this manner does not taste well till it has stood at least a fort- night after being salted but after that pe- riod has elapsed il eats with a rich mar- rowy taste that no other butler ever, ac- quires and it tastes so little of that a person who has been accustomed to ea-t butter cured with common salt only, would not imagine it had got one fourth part of the salt necessary to preserve' it'. Thrift of IIic Wax. An experienced man at the business of engrafting, objects to th'e'uie of Hotin or any other similar substance in h'ia engralv- tng waxysuch substances burn or neat much.

Pedro I, the eighth king of Portugal was remarkable for his and impar- tial- administration ofjusticer An ecclesiastic, iii a high fit of pas- sion, killed a whom he had em- ployed, for not executing something a- greeable to his mind.
