                                                          "Dum vivimus, vivamus"
                                        "Live, while you live," the epicure would say,
                                                 "And seize the pleasure of the present day."
                                        "Live, while you live," the sacred preacher cries,
                                                 "And give to God each moment as it flies."

                                       Lord, in my view, let both united be,
                                              I live in pleasure, when I live to Thee.
                                                                                              Dr. Doddridge

                 An old Deed. Robert Dunning, a clerk in the store of his brothers, J. A.
          Dunning, a few das since, found an old parchment deed as big an a apron
          upon the wharf on which their store stands.  It was executed one hundred and
          thirty-seven years since, and by which Sir Charles hobby, of London, Knight,
         deeded sever large tracts of land to "Thomas Allan , London, only son and heir
         of Samuel Allen, late of the province of New Hampshire, within her Majesty's
         Territory and Dominion, of New England."  Cape Ann and Piscataway harbor
         seem to be included in the grant.  The parchment is much stained, and it is with
         difficulty that the manuscript can be made out.  {Bangor Whig
              Fire.  The house and out building belonging to William Whittier, Esq., of
           Farmington, Me., were totally destroyed by fire about 11 o'clock Sunday night;
          it caught in the upper story of the house, and was without doubt, accidental;
         the house was occupied by Elder Bailey and H. B. Stinchfield-it was one of the
         best building in the town and was insured for nine hundred dollars at the
         Monmouth Mutual Fire Insurance Office.

             An Old Stick. We have received a stick of wood which appears to be a hemlock
         branch, taken by J. B. Fillebrown, Esq., from a bog on his farm, six feet from the
         surface.  It has been cut off by some not very sharp instrument.  Probably done
         "long time ago," by the Indians.  The soil or peaty matter had accumulated over it
          to that amount-but how long it has been so doing it is impossible to tell. If we
          allow the soil to increase half an inch per year, it must have been there 142 years.

                Serious Accident. While Mr. Benjamin Hawkes and wife, of Windham were
          proceeding down Preble Street, yesterday afternoon in a wagon, the horse
         suddenly took fright, became unmanageable, and started upon the run. At the
         juncture of Cumberland and Preble Streets, the wagon came in contact with great
         violence. Mr. Hawks was thrown head long from the vehicle, and his skull so badly
         fractured that his life is considered in danger.  Mrs. Hawkes was also thrown out and
         considerably bruised, but fortunately no bones broken.

             Fire. The Large Tavern House, kept by Mrs. Cheney, on the upper road to
         North Yarmouth, about six miles from this city, was burnt to the ground,
         together with the adjoining stable and out-building, yesterday afternoon,
         between 2 and 4 o'clock.  it is supposed that the fire took from the pipe of a
         person who had been smoking in the stable.  We understand that the house was
        insure at the Gorham Mutual Office for $800. The furniture was mostly saved.
            A person who came in town by the stage last evening, informed us that the fire
        had  communicated itself to the woods in the neighborhood, and was spreading

            We regret to learn that Mr. Joseph Walker, engaged to work upon the
         machinery in the new woolen factory of Brookville, on Tuesday accidently
         cut off his finger of his left hand.  he is an industrious and enterprising man.
