sFlie Flight of Time.
How rapid is the flight of time in its jour-
, ney onAvard 'to eternity!' And the dews of
morning, do they not rise, glitter, break and
bubble, to direct the course of all beneath the
sky! From the cradle to the grave from in-
'fancy, our strife is begun; we advance toyman-
hood, progress to oId age, and, at last, sink
into everlasting life.
- Passing rapidly, as it is thus apparent, from
one.state ocxistenee to another from help-
Jess childhood to the feebleness of age it
'-woulc" he well to contemplate these swift
changes; "to meditate on the brevity of liuman
'"Tiemgfand to employ, to the best advantage,"
eachpassing moment as it flies, by the agita-
tion of whatever measures Avould, in their ten-
dency, benefit, in the last degree, our fellow-
' creatures, and in reTaxingno effort toward
carrying the same to a successful issue.
In the progressJof events, it will falL tothe
lottf many a traveller 'jto eternity,' to witness
The "rise and fall of thousands of their conpan-
ions, Avho are pursuing the same journey; the
-wheel of fortune,, ever on the turn, produces
a varied change in thelife of all. At one time,
we are -wafted, by the gale of piosperity, along
the stream of time, love beams forth its bright-
est rays, and friendship's joys gild our merid-
ian; at another, the dark clouds of misfortune
pour on our devoted heads their gathered store,
arrest our every joy, blast f our comforts, and
cast a shade over all our transports, but, al-
though life is thus chequered, Ave are consoled

We have now come to the consideration of
time, in its onward stride 'to eternity. A

Tlie Female Temper
j"Noirait of character is more "valuable in a
female than the possession of a weet temper
jlpoine cannot be made happy without it it is
llike the flowers that spring up in our pathway,
reviving and cherishing us. Let a man go
Jhbnie at night, wearied 'and worn by the toils
of the day, and how smoothing is a word dic-
tatedbya goodjrdisposition. sIt is sunshine
Falling on his heart. He is iiappy, and the
Jczxzs of life are forgotton. A sweet temper
Igias-a soothingjufluence over the minds of u
'-ivhole family. "When it is found in a wife
andmother, you observe kindness and love
the predominating over the natural feelings
of a bad heart. Smiles, and kind words and
looks characterize the children, and peace and
love have their dwellings there. Study, then
to acquire and attaiu a sweet temper. It is
valuable than ro!d, it captivates more
jeauty, and to the close of life it retains
?huess and power.

ectly so that, in a couple of days, it
be with creat difficulty broken even

pose it Avould not be doing justice to the i li-
ven tcr or discoverer to mention the ingredients:
but we may say they are very cheap, vastly
abundant in almost every locality throughout
the United States and the process or rationale
so perfectly simple that a child may make
the mixture it requiring not the least skill.
It is.' perfectly impervious to water, slightly
elastic, and a non-conductor of eleclrjcity

bility equal to that of granite. It is certainly
quite as difficult to separate after being .ex-
posed two or three days to the air, as we our-
selves have seen tried, by the blows of an axe.
The covering for houses will be less expen-
sive than that of wood, and its use for fences
will perhaps be but slightly more so. One
or two houses have already been covered with
it iriMontgoracry; and others have been con-
tracted for." As to cohesive and adhesive
qualities audits impervionsuess to water; and
its cheapness, there can be no doubt. Aud-if
its durability is as great'as is claimed for it by
the inventor or discoverer, then it is oue of
the most important and useful discoveries of
