What this change is we dare not
oven conjecture} but we see in* the
leavens themselves some traced of
destructive elements £id some indi*
cation of their anuihilative powers.
The fragments of broken planets
the descents of meteoric stones upon
our globe, the .whirling comets wield*
ing their loose material at the solar
surface, the volcanic eruptions in our
satellite, (he appearance of new stars
are all foreshadows of that impending
convulsion of which the world is
doomed. Thus placed on a planet
which is to be burnt up, and under
heavous which are to pass away;
thus residing, as it were, on the
cemeteries and dwelling upon mauso-
leum* of former worlds, let us learn
the lessons of humility and wisdom,
if we have not already been taught
in the school of revelation.

The wise and gifted Josh Billings
tenders to all whom it may concern
the following excellent advice :
"Don't court for munny, nor buty,
nor relashuns; Üiose things are just
about as tho l&rosene ile refining
bizziness—liable to git out of repair
and bust at any minnit. Oourt a gal
for fun, for the luv you bare her, for
the virchu and bizziness there is in
her; court her for a wife or for a moth-
er ; court her as you would a farm,
for the sito and perfection for a title;
court h$r as thou' she wasn't a fule
and you another; court her in the
kitchun, over the wash tub and at
tho painer; court in this way, young
man, and if you don't get a wife the
fault won't be in the courtin."
A young friend of ours requests us
to advertise that he desires a situa-
tion as son-in-law in some responsible,
wealthy family-—the lady to have
enough means at her command to keep
both from work, and to pay all ex
pensos for luxuries, sueltas buggy-rid-
ing, going toMthe springs this summer,
etc. References exchanged if requii ed.

In a certain school during the par-
sing lesson the word "waif" occurred
in the sentence. The youngest, who
was a bright eyed little fellow, _
zled over the word a few minutes and
then a bright idea struck him, "I can
parse it—positive waif comparative,
wafer, superlative, sealingwax.
Black-eyed ladies are most apt tobe
passionate and jealous. Blue-eyed,
slothful, truthful, affectionate and con-
fiding. Gray-eyed, philosophical, lite-
rary, resolute, cold-hearted. Hazel-
eyed, quick-tempered and fickle.
"Is anybody now waiting upon
you?" said one of our polite dry goods
clerks to a girl from the country.—
"Yes sir, said the blushing damsel,
"that's my follow outside. He
wouldn't come in."
