upon to enliven the excursion by singing and playing. They are seated under the shade

A TRIP ACROSS TUE ATLANTtC.
This voyage, which, before the application of steam to navigation, consumed long weary
months, now can be -ecomiplished in from two to three weeks. Soon after leaving port, a
person not accustomed to life on the water, becomes very sick, but as he becomes more
accustomed to the rolling motion of the ship, he recovers, with a ravenous appetite. The
various sights which attract the attention of passengers. render a. trip across the Atlantic
one of the pleasintest and most interesting experiences that a person can enjoy. As the
land frides gradually out of sight, and the passenger finds himself entirely at the mercy of
the skill of the engineers and sailors, he is impressed. as he looks upon the trackless ocean,
with feelings of the most solemn description, and' cannon think, but with awe, of the
might and grandure of the Creator.

A Day in the Woods, or Life
in the Country.
Life in, the country has
many advantages over city
life. In the country the air
is pure and bracing, and
children require less watch-
ing than they do in towns
where the streets are crowd-
ed with men, horses and
wagons. Little children
who live in cities, delight
to spend their summers in
the country, where they
can run over the green
fields and enjoy themselves
to their hearts 'content.-
They see many things that
are new to them. The cows

are strange, and every-
thing wears a first and

THE FAVORITE HORSE.
The horse we see here is_
the steed of a sportsman, he
stands as if he were tired out
by a long journey, near himn
are lying the dogs, watching
the game that they have been
taught not to touch. Gunning
is an amusement much liked
by those who often so splelld
their time, but it seems a pity
to destroy the innocent, birds,
that have never caused injury
to any one, but have been of
great service to farmers by
destroying worms, which
would cause considerable in-
jury to the field and fruit crops, 7_-
besides enlivening the season by their pleasant songs.:
THE SCOTTISH ORPHANI.
SAmid the highlands of
Scotland resided a happyfam-
ily, consisting of a gentleman,
his wife and one daughter.
i Their life was undisturbed,
ea-ch day seemed to make the
1) I bnds of love which united
them, more firm and lasting.
But when least expected,
,ie'kness overtook the father,
and in spite of all the care
and attention that his wife
and daughter could bestow,
he died. The daughter's
whole time was now devoted
S U.- to her mother, whohad con-1
tracted a severe fever in con-
sequence of her days and nights of watching over her husband,
which proved fatal, and poor Mora was left an orphan.
Indians are a barbarous and uncivil-
i ed people. They have often carried
off little children, and made them live
the same lives as themselves, never
more to see their brothers and sisters.
They often fight among themselves, but
1 before doing so, they engage in a horrid
k.L.. 4". war-dance.

SIndians have gone westward ever since the white man first

Appear as if the subject was very

ly amused. It is his custom to
entertain his little ones by telling
them the most interesting parts
of history, and while they are
apparently but listening to stor-
ies; they are having their minds
stored- with. one: of the most
useful branches of knowledge,
and which will be of service to
them as long as they live. They
are already acquainted with all
the particulars of the American Revolution, as well as the prin-
cipal points of English history.

This animal, which all of you have
seen probably in the menageries, is one
of the largest of the animal kingdom.-
When tamed, he is perfectly harmless,
unless his good nature is imposed upon,
when he becomes quite revengeful, often
having caused serious injury to persons
who have played tricks upon him. A
man, who was in the habit of giving fig
leaves to an elephant, one day wrapped
a stone among some, which he handed to
the animal; the elephant immediately
___~. ~ dropped it, but seemed to have taken
such special notice of the man, that when
he met again, the same day, he wrapped his trunk around his body, threw him to the
ground and trampled him to death.
The camel in not found anywhere in a .
wild state but in parts of Asia and Africa '
it is used as a beast of burden. The 4
Camel and the Dromedary are two varie-
ties of the same animal. The Dromedary
is to the Camel, what a racer is to a
draught horse. There are one humped
and two humped Camels, and one humped
and two humped Dromedaries. The f-. '
height of the Camel rarely exceeds seven
feet. He is admirably adapted by the
Creator to traveling across deserts, in
the structure of his feet, nostrils and in- __-
his ability to carry within himself a
supply of water.
Here are the birds which furnish us
with all our eggs, as well as with the
young chickens for our table. The kind
you see in the picture' are' called Cochin
China chickens, having been imported
front the place, from which they derive
.their name. They. are a much better
variety than our common chickens, laying
for a longer time, as well as larger eggs.
They are entirely white, except around
the neck, where the feathers are pointed
with black. There are a, number of
other kinds of fine chickens, some of
which are larger.

A' OCISE ts LAPLAND
Lapland is a country where the ground is generally covered
with snow. The Laplanders have reindeer.to do for them what
horses aind oxen do for us, These reindeer pull their sleds at
the rate of from seven to ten miles an hour, furnish milk and
meat, and their fur is used for clothing.
To this house, soon after George Washington was born, his
father removed. It was situated on the Rappahannock near
Fredricksburg. Here under this humble roof his mother reared
her six children, the eldest of whom became so illustrious.
This is an emigrant family, which has left their home among
their friends and relations, and sailed across the Atlantic to seek
their fortunes in America.
