160 NEW ENGLAND PARMER. NOVEMBER At, 1830. MISCELLANY. SUMMER'S GONE. BY MRS. MORTON. Hark, through the dim woods dying-, With a moan, Faintly the winds are sighing" Summer's gone 3 There, when my bruised heart fcelelh, And the pale moon her face revealeth, Darkly my footstep stealeth To weep alone. Hour after hour I wander, By men unseen And sadly my wrung thoughts ponder, On what hath been. Summer's gone! There is our own green bowers, Long ago, Our path through the tangled flowers Treading slow; Oft hand in hand entwining, Oft side by side reclining We've watched in its crimson shining The sunset glow. Dimly the sun now burnetii For me alone Spring after spring relurnetb. Thou art gone, Summer's gone. Still on my warm cheek playelk The restless breeze ; Still in its freshness strayeth Between the trees. Still the blue streamlet gushetb Still the broad river rusheth Still the calm silence husheth Tke heart's disease : But who shall bring our meetings Back again T What shall recal thy greetings Love in vain ! Summer's gone ! DESCRIPTION OP AN AMIABLE WIFE. Dodsley in his Economy of Human Life, has finely depicted a valuable woman, pronouncing her with the wise man of old, the first and noblest of human benedictions, winding up his eulogiums with those remarkable lines : " Happy the man that shall call her wife, Happy the child that calls her mother." Among other merits which he celebrates are the following : " She presides in her house, and there is peace ; she commands with judgment, and is obeyed ; the law of love is in her servants' hearts ; her children reverence her precepts, and her husband with rapture hears her praise in the gate she is the best counsellor, example, friend." What higher felicity can be imagined than a union with so amiable a creature ! and notwithstanding the degeneracy of the times, many, very many are to be found by those who seek them worthily. Casket. DEFINITION. The editor of the Lancaster Journal says, ' intemperance is the consumption of the soul." We mean no kind of pun when we say it is a consumption of the spirit. Mind and matter all go, and he who embraces the bottle is like the Spartan boy with the stolen 4 fox' hugging close that which will eat out his vitals. U. S. Gaz. SELECT PROVERBS OF ALL NATIONS. The first chapter of fools, is to esteem themselves wise. The longest life is but a parcel of moments. Truth hath always a fat bottom Gaelic. Vain glory blossoms but never bears. We have all forgotten more than we can remember. Vice is its own punishment, and sometimes its own cure. The greatest learning is to be seen in the greatest plainness. The first degree of folly is to think one's self wise ; the next to tell others so ; the third to despise all counsel. The example of good men is visible philosophy. LONGEVITY OF THE SWAN. The other day, a male swan which had seen many generations come and go, and witnessed the other mutations incident to the lapse of 200 years, died at Rosemount. He was brought to Dunn when the late John Erskine, Esq. was in infancy, and was then said to be 100 years old. About two years ago he was purchased by the late David Duncan, Esq. of Rosemount ; and within that period his mate brought forth four young ones, which he destroyed as soon as they took the water. Mr. Molleson, Bridge-street, in whose museum the bird is now to be seen, thinks he might have lived much longer but for a lump or excrescence at the top of the windpipe, which, on dissecting him, he found to be composed of grass and tow. This is the same bird that was known and recognized, in the early years of octogenarians in this and the neighboring parishes, by the name of " the old swan of Dunn." Montrose Review. This is the age of large Turnips, Mammoth Beets and Big Apples. Mr. T. Curtis of Monmouth, has left in our office a turnip, of the white Norfolk variety, which weighs twelve pounds, and measures two feet six inches in circumference ; This is only a fair sample of his crop ; he states that he had one which measured three feet in circumference ; but it absconded one day from the yard. Probably it felt too large to stay any longer with turnips of smaller dimensions. Maine Farm. A HUMAN TEAM. A novel spectacle and, we may add a moving one was witnessed in this place ten or twelve days since exemplifying in one of the strongest points of view a state of bodily degradation most painful and revolting to the feelings of human nature. It consisted of a wagon, filled with such articles of furniture, &c. as usually belongs to an emigrating establishment bound for the far West, drawn by two men and a hoy, all duly harnessed, acting in the capacity and doing the work of a team of horses ! The individuals thus engaged appeared cheerful and patient in the exercise of their laborious employment. They were ascertained to be emigrants from Germany, on their way to the distant regions of the West. Guernsey Times. From a Poem of Enoch Lincoln, late governor of Maine. " New England's fruitful soil Requires no culture from a servile toil ; No master's torturing lash offends the ear, No slave is now or ever shall be here : Where'er he treads upon our sacred fields Their Guardian Genius an asylum yields ; His chains drop from him : and on Reason's plan . He claims the gift of God the rights of man." NEW ENGLAND SEED STORE, AND HORTICULTURAL REPOSITORY.
