A man can metamor phose himself by a change of his hat sooner than by that of any other garment, \What is a knight with- out a helmet, a Turk without a tur- ban, a Bonaparte without a cocked hat? Would a trapper be a trap- per without a. wolf-skin cap with the tail dangling between his shoulders ? Where would the stage Yankee be without the bell-crowned hat?— What would become of the ideal Ethiopian queen of the plantation without a red bandanna? It is'nt the tailor that makes the man, either nine or nineteen of them. It is the hatter. The broad brim is essential to the Quaker, and these modern friends that wear plug-hat \ may be just as good, and for aught we know, better than then fathers who wore broad brims, but we wouldn't give two centsforafollowj er of Fox in a modern hat. Ail piefcuresqueness is gone as soon as the broad-brim hat vanishes, and if you take away the picturesqueness the Quaker is no better than any other good Christian. Our advice to young Quakers is to stick to then wide hats. We likejvarieiy. When our eyes are weary of the black chimney-pot hat in Broadway, we like to meet a rosy-cheeked young Irish priest in his priest's cap. It relieves the eye What anybody wants with a mod- ern beaver we do not know. What demon of ugliness prompted the first inventor of the 'things to introduce them ? There is no form or come- liness to tliem that they should bo made or worn. Thei'e is not a grace- ful line in their contour. In vain the ingenious hatters change them and seek out new devices, widening them atop and turning them up at the sides, and then reversing the pro- cess. All is vanity and vexation of spirit. They are ngly, first, last, and all the time—ngl;f continually. 'These cylindrical \stove-pipe \nail- keg\' things, as the boys call them, have nothing that can recommend them. They are cold in winter.— They are. hot in summer. They de stroy the hair. They do not pro- tect the eyes. They disfigure the man, and they want no quality pos- sible in a hat that coiiM make fhern more uncomfortable: The very glossiness of the high- crowned top-dressing is a disadvan- tage. Instead oi sheltering the wearer, as they pretend so they have to be sheltered. Ten drops of rain are sufficient to impair their luster. The wind has every chance at them. They are too delicate to^ travel in. They are too nice to wear around home. They are generally unfit for use, and worse than worthless for ornament. What a martyr a\ well-dressed man is to Ms hat! He dusts it with a soft Brush bought on purprsa that he may not scratch its surface. He cherishes its gloss with his sleeve and his pocket handkerchief. In a crowd ho gives his whole attention ^ to thejvese^ajim^ \Xt Tjis destination he deliberates where he shall put it. In a rain he shields it. In the cars he band boxes it. And in a wind—olil in a wind, how lie holds it! M\|»t too tightly, 1 ! lest he put it ontof shape. iTo'- too loosely,*lest it escape. Not with one hand, but with both. And if it should escape—oh! fearful ca- tastrophe ! How it rolls! How docs the nice eccentric of the brim give it a graceful limp, like the gait of a Grecian bender! How it is now poised on the brim like a velou- against the walls, and a brave man rushed up its rounds to the rescue. Overcome by the smoke, and per- haps daunted by the hissing flames before him, he halted, and seemed to hesitate. Jt was an awful scene. A life hung in the balance, and each moment was an age. \Oheer him?\ shouted a voice from the crowd, and a wild \ Hur- rah!\ hurst like a tempest from the beholding multitude. That cheer did the work, and the brave fireman went upward amid smoke and flame, and in a moment descended with the rescued one in his arms. Friend, brother, when you see a brave soul struggling under the cross, rushing forward to rescue dy- ing men, and yet faltering iu -an hour of weakness or a moment of peril, then eheei' him! And as a pebble's fall may change a river's course, so your words of sympathet- ic kindness may lift a drooping hear and fix its faltering purpose for a noble life. LETXEHS ODP RECOM- MEND __ TIOIST. A gentleman advertised for a boy to assist him in his office, and near- ly fifty applicants presented them- selves to him. Out of the whole number, he, in a short time selected one and dismissed the rest. \I should like to know,\ said a friend, \on what ground you select- ed that boy, who had not a single recommendation.\ 'Totf -Jh ~~u\stafcm v §'cird-Srritii , ipede, and now rolling the glossy crown on the dirty sicl.'-walk! And as the panting owner tries to sieze it, how docs it elude him! Inevita- bly it makes a graceful curve, as if by a calculation of sines and co-sines and tangents ; toward the mud-pud- dle or the gutter. And when the panting proprietor of a hat, who has lived solely for that hat, wholly con- secrated to the welfare of his beaver, whenat last he claps impatient hands upon the truant whirligig, ho is like the boy that caught the butterfly. The gloss of his nine-dollar beaver has disappeared. And the shape. It is now that most pitiful of objects a shocking bad hat,—Ex. gentleman, \he had a great many. He wiped his feet when he came in, showing that he was careful. He gave up Ms seat instantly to the lame, old man, showing that he was kind and thoughtful. He took off his cap when he came in, and an- swered my questions promptly and respectfully, showing he was polite and gentlemanly. He picked up the book 1 had purposely laid upon the floor, aud replaced it on the ta- ble, while all the rest stepped over it or shoved it aside, and waited qui- etly for bis turn instead of pushing and crowding, showing that he was honest and orderly. When I talked with Mm I noticed that Ms clothes were carefully brushed, his hair in nice order, and his teeth as Avlnte as milk, and when he Wrote his name, I noticed that his finger nails were clean instead of being tipped with- jet, like that handsome little fellow's in the blue jacket. Don't you call hose things letters of recommenda- tion? I do, and I would give more for what I can tell about a boy by using my eyes ten minutes than all of the finest letters he can bring me.\ axacBEE, __iiv_.' always remember, that hi order to be great artists we must first of all be good, men—that his work only lives and prospers who hath hot lift- ed up his mind unto fainty^ but steadily pursues solely what is pure and honest and of good r'ep'dr'f;;\ WATER IN THE DESERT*—tinder the sand of the, Great Uesert there is a liquid bed, which the inhabit- ants of the border of i^aliara have long been in the habit of' reaching by means of wells. With rude in- struments they penetrate the suc- cessive layers of sand, gf ave'l, and clay, until they come toasc'istoseor slaty stratum at a depth' 6f one or two hundred fathoms. TMs last covers the precious fluid, arid in penetrating it, the indefatigable workmen are often overwhelmed by the sudden ascent of the wafer in- great quantity. Sometimes these* wells are completed under a column of a hundred or more feet of water for infiltration, which it is impossi- ble to keep out. The Arabs dive to the bottom, remaining not more-' than four or five minutes, and bring-' to the surface, as the result of each trial, only a few pounds of sand. It is evident that often many years are- needed for the completion of these' wells under such circumstances.— The French have come to the relief of these unfortunate inhabitants,- and have sunk artesian wells in va- rious pyts of the Desert, sbine of w*n>& .4lH$4 morB w ^ ie ^ tvWtho famous well of Greuelle. They em- ploy, to make the desert blossom as the rose, an American invention,, the tube-well. In one of our cities a fire occur- red in a dwelling. It. was near mid- night, and the flames had made headway before they were discover- ed. The fire companies rallied; the inmates escaped in affright, and the firemen worked with a will to sub- due the flames. The snaoke had be-- come so thick that the outlines of the house wore scarcely visible, and the fiery element was raging with fearful power, when a- piercing cry thrilled all hearts, as they learned that there was one person yet un- saved within the building.- In a moment a ladder was swung I industiy is guilt, si Milton has finely said; \Ho who would not beflnstrated of his hope to write well hereafter in laudable things, ought himself to be a true poem—that is. a composition and pattern of the be st and bono blest things—not presuming to sing high praises »f heroic men, or famous cities, unless he have in Mniself the experience and the practice of all that which is- praiseworthy.\ This was recalled by the following\ equal- ly fine, saying of Buskin, which we find in one of his recent lectures; \True Art is never immortal; we might almost say that little else but Art is moral ; for as life without, industry with- tMough the flames and planted lout Art is biutdity.

The chains • of hills- which traverse the quarters to the\ south and west of tlie Castle are re- p markably rich in rocks, little glens,- grottoes, springs, and ponds, wliich the small proprietors combine in the most ingenious manner, so as to' give the features of a varied land-' scape in a limited spaee. When there is an entrance from the garden upon the street, a rustic bridge is- thrown over the canal before the' portal, wliich is carefully concealed under spreading trees or thick shrub- bery. We have hard'y crossed the threshold, when we find ourselves apparently in a wild forest, far from- all habitation Masses of rocks,. carelessly disposed in the manner of a staircase, invite us to ascend, and from the summit a charming scene' is suddenly spread out below. Aif amphitheater of leaves and flowers incloses a picturesque pond of water; bordered with lotus, >iris, and water- lilies; a light wooden bridge is thrown across it; the path which .descends to the latter passes by long:. windings through clumps of bam- boos,-azaleas, dwarf palms, andca: meliae, then by groves of small pine* and slopes of turf or flowers-.- 1 —i' • ' U Wealth is desirable for what it eu= ables ns to do or enjoy; biit,< it is not desirable at the cost of honesty and honor and true manhood.- It i* not desirable when truth and virtue*. - and religion—when honorable use- fulness and happiness here, and-eter-- mil happiness hereafter— vaunt be? ;?.w.'rifiur;d- for if*
