MISCELLANEA.

Faith.— Implicit Feith has been sometimes ludicrously styled fides carbonaria, from the noted story of one who, ex. amining an ignorant collier on his religious principles, asked him what it was that he believed ? He answered, “ I believe what the Church believes." The other rejoined, " What then does the Church believe ?" He replied readily, “ The church believes what I believe.” The other, desirous, it' possible, 10 bring him to particulars, once more resnined his inquiry: “ Tell me, then, I pray yon, what it is you and the church both believe ?” The only answer the collier conld give was, “ Why truly, sir, the church and I both-believe the same thiny." This is inplicit faith in perfection, and, in the estimation of some celebrated doctors, the sain of necessary and saving knowledge in a christian,

Laconic Order of the Day.- Frederick II. wrote one day to Gen. Salmon, Commander at Cleves,-“ My dear Salmon, it' the Austrians come into my territories, tell them they have mistaken their way; it they begin to argue, make them prisoners; and if they make any resistance, cut them to pieces.

Aboriginal Character.-As an Indian was straying thronglı a village on the Kennebec, he passed a gentleman stauding at his store door, and beyyed a piece of tobacco. The person stepped back and selected a generous piece, for which he received a gruff • tank you,' and thought no more of the affair. Three or four months afterwirds, he was surprised at an Indian coming into the store and presenting him with a beantiti miniature birch canoe, painted, and furnisied with paddles to correspond. On ashing the meaning of it, he was told, ' Indian no forget; you give me tobacco - me make this for you.' This man's gratitude for a trifling favour had led him to bestow more labour on his present, than would have purchased him many pounds of his favourite fumigatory.

Composure.-On Friday se’nnight, as the condemned pri. sovers were enteri:g the goal, of this town, one of them, of the name of Bradnom, convieted of tie burglary at Glems. ford, was thus accosted by his mother :-"Well, boy, what are you to be done to?" “ Hanged mother.” replied the son. “Well," rejoised the mother, “ be a good boy, and don't be hanged in your besi clothes, but let me bave them-I had bei. ter take your red waistcoal now.---Bury Pust.

A Querulous Mon.-Mr. Tyers (the proprietor of Vaux. hall Gardens) was a worry man, but indulged himself a liitle too much in the querulous strain when any thing went amiss ; insomuch, that be said, if he had been tronght up a hatier, lie believed people would have been born without heads! A farmer once gave him a humorous reproot for this kind of reproach ot Heaven : he stepped op to him very respectfully, and asked him when he meant to open bis Gardens. Mr. Tvers replied the next Monday fortnight. The man thanked him repeatedly, and was going away ; bnt Ar. Tyers asked him in return, what made him so anxious to know. Why, sir,” said the farmer, “ I think of sowing my turnips on that day, for you know we shall be sure to have rain.”

Orer-ferding.- Mr. Abernethy agreed with the opinion en. tertained by Frankiin, who said that nine tenths of the diseases weie caused by over feeding. That learned surgeon, in one of li is lectures in 18:27, thus addressed his hearers:-“ I tell you honestly what I think is the cause of the compli. cated maladies of the human race; it is their gormandizing and stuiting, and stimulating their digestive organs to an excess, thereby producing nervous disorders and irritation. The state of their minds is another grand cause; the fidgeiting and discontenting yourselves about ihat which can't be helped; passions of all kinds ---malignant passions and worldly cares, pressing upon the mind, disturb the cerebral action, and du a great deal of harm."

VOLTAIRE's character of Cromwell is an admirable example of wisdom and conciseness.--" Cromwell is described as a man who was an impostor ali bis lite. I can scarcely believe it. I conceive that he was at first an enthusiast, and that he afterwariis made his fanaticism instrumental to his greatness. An ardent novice at twenty, often becomes an accomplished rogne at torty. In the great game of human lite, nien begin with being dipes, and end in becoming knaves. A statesman engages as his almoner a molik, entirely made up of the details of his convent-devoit, erednlous, awkward, perfectly new to the workil: he acquires information, polisli, tinesse, and opplants bis master."

National Physical Force of Animals.--The account given by M. Dupin, of the Physical force of the animals of France, affords' a great number of interesting observations. We remark, that the whole animal force of the kingdom is only equal to four times the physical force of the people; while in Britain, the whole animal is equal to eleven times the phy. sical force of the people ; whence it follows, that in France the labourers are three times less assisted by animals than the labourers of Britain. In Britain, they have ove horse for every ten inhabitants; in France, one for every thirteen. The diligences, or stage coaches, except on a few roads, travel at the rate of only two leagues an hour, while in England, the same conveyances travel at the rate of tree, and even four.

When to kill a Lion – The following curious circumstance is related in Thompson's Travels in Southern Africa :-" I was · told here that a lion had just killed an ox, and bad been shot in the act. It is the labii of the lion, it seems, when he kills a large animal, to spring npon it, and, seizing ile throat with his terrible t'anys, to press the body down with his paus, till bis victim expires. The moment lie seizes his prey, the liou closes his eyes, and never opens them again mil life is extinct. The Hoitentots are aware of this; and on the present occasion one of the herdsmien ran to the spot with his guin, and tired at the lion within a few yards distance, but, from the agitation of his perves, entirely missed him. The lion, however, did not. even deign to notice the report of the gun, bit kept fast hold of his prey. The Hottentot re-loaded, fired a second time, and shot bim through the head. This facr, beinly well an. thenticated, seemed to me curious, and worthy of being ineutioned.”

Slarery.“ Withont slavery,” say the advocates of the practice, “ the plantation could not be worked; for the negra has such a constitutional abhorrepce of labour, that bothin's bue blows and direats can force him to exert his physical powers; money or entreaties won be found insufficient to mahe hini vise from the sand, on which he wonde bask the whole day long.” And, therefore, for the sake of sweetening olis' gossip-chips with a little cane-jirice, the bitter sweat or agony is to continue to be wrwg tronk the brow of a fellow. morial ; his back is to be so laceratul, that, when he starts from his short sleep, at the voice of his imperiou« ia-k-master, he carries away with him half of the rollen liter which kept liis bleeding limbs from the ground. Bilt, enough!

We hope the time is near when suche scenes will et'us!, and ouly beieme mbered with horror.

Narrative of Three Desprled Children.-" I will recorj in this place," says Mr. Frint, in his Travels in America, narrative that impressed me deeply. It was a fair sample of the cases of extreme misery and desolation that are often wit. nessed on the Missi«sippi siver. In the Sabbath school at New Madrid we received three children, ulio were introducent to that place under the following circunstances: A man was descending the river with these three children in bis pirogue. He and his cluidren lad lauded on a desert island, on a biter «Snowy eveving in December. There were bill two houses, which were al Litile Prairie, opposite the Island, within a great distance. He wanted more whisky, althonghi be had been drinking too freely. Against the persuasions of his children, he lelt ther, to cross over in his pirogue to these houses, and renew his supply. Tie wind blew lighi, and the river was rongh. Nothing could disenaide him from this dun. gerous atieinpt. He told them that be should returu 10 them that piulit, left them in tears, and exposed to the pitilexs pelt. ing of the storm, and started for his carouse. Tive children saw the boat sink before he had halt crossed the passge: the man was drowned. These forlorn beings were left without any other covering than their oun scanty and ragged dress, for he had taken bis bianket with him They had neitier fire nor shelter, and no other food than amicooked pork and corn. It snoweit last, and the nig!ıl closed over them in this situation. The elder was a girl of six years, but remarkably shrewd and acute for her age The next was a girl on tour, and the youngest a boy ottwo. It was atfecting to hear her describe lier desolation of heart, as she set herseli to examine her resources. She made them creep together, and draw their bare feet under their clothes. She covered them with leaves and branches, and thus they passed the first night. In the morning, the younger children wepi biiterly wiili cold and buget. The pork she ciltinio small pieces. She then persuaded them to run ajout, by setting them the example. Then she made the return to chewing corn and pork. In the course of the day, soine Indians landed on the island, found them, and, as they were coming up 10 New Madrid, took them with them.”
