Three Words of Strength, There are three lessons I would write-^ Three words as with a burning pen, In tracings of eternal light, Upon the hearts of men. Have hope. Though clouds environ now, And gladness hides her face in scorn, Put thou the shadow from thy brow- No night but hath its morn. Have faith, Where'er thy bark is driven— The calm's disport, the tempest's mirth— Know this—God rules the hosts of heaven, The inhabitants of earth. Have love. Not love alone for one, But man, as man, thy brothers call, And scatter like the circling sun, Thy charities on all. Thus grave these lessons on thy soul-r- E'ope*. Faith and Love^-and thou shalt find\ Strength when life's surgesjrudest roll, Light when thou else were blind* and girls to try to get an education. Bat few children aire ever more ppor than this little factory girl, whose parents Md not know one day what they should give their little girl to eat the next day. But God provided the way for her to get a good education, and he is ready to help you* Only, \God helps those who help themselves.'' Make up your mind that you must have an education, and never stop till you have secured it. Second thing: Do not be ashamed to do whatever is honorable to help you along. Per- haps you would not think it a very genteel way to make a living to work in a factory. But Fanny Forester did it, and now we all honor her for having done what she could to help her parents and to provide for herself. Third thing: Do not refuse to do a thing which will furnish you some help because it will not help you more. The little Fanny For- ester might have said seventy-five cents was not enough to pay for teaehhag school a whole week. But it was all she could get, and rather than nothing she took that; and byand-by she was able to earn two or three hundred dol- lars a year. She began life in a very humble way, but before she died there were thousands who felt honored even to speak of the little factory girl. Fourth thing: Do not think you can do no good because you are poor. This poor factory girl and poor teacher came, In after life to do very much good by her writings and her labors. When any poor girl is tempted to think she can do no good in the world, let her remember the poor factory girl, let her remember Fanny Forester, let her remember Emily C. Judson.

AN ACT to amend an act entitled \An act to incorporate the United States Trust Com- pany of New York,,' passed April twelfth, eighteen hundred and fifty4hree. Passe 1 March 31,1863. 'lheJ'eople of the State of New York, repmented in SriMt' and Assembly, do enact as follows : SECTION 1. 'i'he United States Trust Com- pany of New York, in addition to the powers etftmeraied in the second section of its char- ter, may take and accept by grant, assignment tia'nc&r.dovi'sC or bequest, and hold any real ©r*pc-rsori(il cstat J, (in trusts created inaccord- ^vviih the laws of this State,) and execute In the spring of 1828, a little girl, eleven years of age, might have been seen in a woolen factory, in Madison County, N. Y., splicing rools. For a child of her tender years it was very hard work; but her parents were so poor that they knew not one day what they should eat the next; and no alternative remained for their child but to toil on. So, in the midst of noise and filth, with bleeding hands, aching feet, and a heavy head, she labored on, through the summer* But this Tittle girl had a brave heart, and was not overcome by the trials which weighed upon her. By and by, when she was a little older, she had managed, poor as they were, to get a term or two of school in an academy near by 5 and when her mother proposed that, as a means of making a living, she would learn the milliner's trade, Our little girl, now about fifteen years old, determined that she woujid not spend her life in making bonnets. She, therefore, after having secured a recom- mendation from the Principal of the academy, went to a neighborhood, not far distant, and engaged to teach school at 75cts. per week. After a few years more this little girl, now grown to be a young lady, was able, through the kindness Of friends, to attend the Young Ladies Seminary, in the city of Utica. Here it was discovered that she was a young lady of more than Ordinary mind. Whatever object of study sue undertook she quickly mastered. Bat she had a peculiar faculty in Composition j so that no sooner had she completed her own course of study than she was placed at the head ef the Composition Department in the Seminary. While thus engaged as a teacher she also wrote some books for Sabbath Schools, which have now been read by hundreds, if not thousands of children. But it was not long before her aptitude in composition brought her into more public notice ;. and she was employed by variouspapers and magazines to contribute to their columns. In this style of writing she speedily earned a wide reputation. Thus time passed on till the year 1846, nearly twenty years since we saw that little girl at work in the woolen factory * At this time there came across the- ocean from Burmah, which the children can all find on the map, a great and good man, who had been laboring for many years as a missionary among the Burmahs. 0n his Way home from Burmah, at the island of St. Helena, which the children will all remember as the burial-place of Napoleon Bonaparte, this good man had buried his wife, a lovely and devoted Chris- tian. The great warior and Emperor, and the humble missionary lady, in death, had their beds made side by side j on a lovely island oi the sea. When this missionary from Burmah had been a few weeks in this country, he met in the city of Philadelphia with this young lady, who had been the factory girl. He was at once Yery A Bachelor** Defonse. Bachelors are styled by married men who have put their foot into it, as only half per- fected beings^—cheerless vagabonds-^bttt half a pair of scissorsr-*md many other titles are given them ; while, on the other hand, they extol their state as one of perfect blies-^-that a Change from earth to heaven would be some- what of doubtful good. If they are so happy, why don't they enjoy their happiness and hold their tongues about it ?

Loneliness, indeed! Who is petted to death by ladies who have daughters ? invited to tea and to evening parties, and told to drop in just when it is con- venient ? The baehelor. Who lies in clover all his days, and when he dies has flowers strewn on his grave by the girls who could not entrap him? The bachelor. Who strews flow- ers on the married man's grave 1 His widow ? \ Not a bit of it; she pulls down the tombstones that a six weeks' grief has set up in her heart, and goes and gets married again-^shedoes. Who has wood to split, house hunting- and marketink to do, the young enes to \waih and the lazy servant to look after ? The married man. Who ia taken np for whipping his Wife ? The married man.

As soon as any such increase of cap- itaUbali have been made, the said company much charmed with her, as she was also with him/ In a few months that missionary was married to that factory girl. They went back to Burmah together to spend their lives in telling the poor heathen of the love of Jesus. After a few more years that missionary died, and his widowed wife again returned tp-thit. country and spent the remainder ef her life. Would you like to know Who that factory girl was? 1 will tell you. When, as a young lady, she used to write for magazines, she was very widely known as \Fanny Forester,\ but .that was not her true name ; her true name was Emily Chubbuck,; and when she was married she was the wife of Rev. Dr. Adoniram Judson, one of the first and one of the best missionaries who ever went out from this country.
