The Blacksmith's Daughter.
BY KiTE GLENMOKE.
"'I wish to exact a promise from you, Fred
on this anniversary of my birth day shall it
be given1" j
"Moat assuredly Lucy, if it be anything
consistent, unless, indeed, it be that I shall
relinquish my cigars."
"No Fred, that is not what I am aiming at,
bo rest easy, I will not tease you on that
point to-day; but it is one of infinitely more
importance. SosayyeS." ... km;m !
"Tell me first what I can promise. It is
too much like a leap in the dark, to say yes
to an undefined proposition,' My sister
knows I would not willingly refuse her any
request to-day ; : i
"Well, then, it is simply this, that you
pay Susan Howard no further attentions." '
"How so, Lucy!" What has Susan How
ard done to offend you, or what can you
bring against her that will justify you in
making such a request!" ' ', ' ' 1
"I should not suppose you would ask that;
Is not her parentage enoughl" ,:
"I cannot see what. She is the daughter
of a honest respectable blacksmith) who has
always supported his family honorably, and
given his daughters an education that will
render them ornaments to the best society
in our land." '
"How absurdly you talk, Fred; where can
.you have picked up such sentiments! I
think that society wculd be vastly obliged
to you, were you to introduce blacksmith's
daughters to grace it's circles."
"Well, it might be Lucy; for notwith
standing your prejudices, let me assure you
there is not a girl among the circle of you?

of mind and heart, will compare with Susan
Howard." . ,!'7 7
' "I know nothing of her sterling qualities.
She doubtless does well enough for the sta
tion in which she moves, and which she is
assigned to fill, as the wife of some sturdy
mechanic'; but you as well as she, would
. find she was quite out of her sphere in more
refined society:" ; ;'.S i:i:.w
"I am sorry to hear you express such sen
timents. What have we, the children of a
republican government to do with such dis
tactions' Worth is the criterion by which
we are to judge, not the accident of fortune
and family. This is one of the chief beau
ties of our' republican institution that,. it
grants to every man and woman the power
to become the architect of theiV own for

"AH that sounds well to politicians snd
will doubtless have a very good effect in
electioneering purposes, but I have no ambi
tion, because I live under a republican gov
ernment, to become so very republican in
my feelings and associations. " The distinc

"How can you Fred, persist in that which
you know ia so annoying to your family!
The very idea of having a girl like Susan
Howard associated with it, is too humbling
to be endured.
"I regret exceedingly that your prejudi
ces are so strong Lucy, aa I have decided on
asking Misa Howard to become your sister,
so you see that I cannot with consistency
give you the required promise."
"If that is your decision, further argu
ment is useless; but you know my feelings
towards her, and the welcome she will be
likely to receive from me."
"Have you seen the member from C ,
Fred!" asked Lucy Preston of her brother
the day after his arrival in Washington,
where she had been spending a few weeks
with her father, a distinguished member of
Congress, from one of our New England
"No. Who is he! and what is he like!"
"His name is Howard, and I hoard father

already filled with the elite of the Capitol;
when Lucy Preston entered, accompanied
by the talented and accomplished Mr. How
Grave statesmen and politicians had laid
aside the care and dignity of state and of
fice, to participate in those fashionable fol
lies which so invitingly promise to afford re
laxation and amusement; and well were
those promises fulfilled, as the raidient fa.ies
of beauty, and majestic manhood proclaim,
as they surrender themselves to the exhilor
ating sound of music, and keep time and
pace with its voluptuous swellings, or they
join themselves to that merry group where
! wit and humor is the presiding genius, while,
perchance, some more intellectual in their
tastes, find a deeper source of enjoyment in
tho discussion of graver topics. . ,
Lucy's eager eye took in at a glance the
gay assembly, then wandered enquiringly
from one group . to another, to distinguish,
if, possible, the star which reigned pre-eminent;
but all seemed alike to her, gay and
beautiful, and she soon in the fascinating
eloquence of tho gentleman on whose arm
she leaned, half forgot the womanly curiosi
ty and the promised introduction; when the
announcement of Mr. Preston and Miss
Howard excited both curiosity and astonish
ment. 'The suppressed murmur of admira
tion which greeted their entrance had scarce
ly subsided, when her astonishment was
suddenly changed to the deeper chagrin and
mortification; for their the acknowledged fa
vorite of the most refined circles of the Cap
tul, she beheld none other than Susan How
ard, the blacksmith's daughter.
The following Christmas witnessed a mer
ry party assembled beneath the roof of our
blacksmith, and Lucy Preston, now Mrs.
Howard the bride of lh6 blacksmith's son
rejoicing in the beauty of those liberal in
stitutions, which a short year before she had
held in such contempt. .
"The distinction of society should be ob
served, Lucy, else what will it become!"
whispered Fred Preston to his sister, on his
merry Christmas evening.
"Yes, sister, dear; only I wish to enquire
what reception the blacksmith's daughter
would receive from tho wife of a distinguish
ed member of Congress!" :
You are positively to bad. There, Susan

. i Anecdote of Gen. Jackson.
, One of the most characteristic anecdotes of
Gen. Jackson is related with a great deal of
zest by Gen. Cullonv who was as he says
"raised under the shadow ' of the Hermit
age." As Gen, Jackson's second, term was
drawing to a close, the politicians were very
anxious to get bis "preferences." it was
suspected that he bad determined to go for
Mr. Van Buren, but no overt demonstration
had yt t been made. A number of Mr. Cal
houn's' shrewdest friends, hoping the old
General might be induced to go for their fa
vorite, managed to get an invitation to dine
at the "White House,'? and amidst the gen
ialities of wine and familiarity of conversa
tion, thd absorbing subject of "tho succes
sion"' was brought forward, and cautiously
narrowed down to the important point of the
old' General's, preferences, . The old man
appeared to bo perfectly unsuspecting but
finally said "he was in favor of of Mr. Yah
Buren." One of the inquisitors, net con
tent, asked "General, who is you second
choice" 'By the Eternal" said "Old Hick

flashed with excitemnt "By 'the 'Eternal, jsjr

Now and then.
(From the Correspondence ef the Detroit Free Press.)
New Yokk Aug. 6lh,
" Piety drat laid
A strong foundation, but she wanted aid;
To wealth unwledly was her prayer addressed
. Who largely gave. Crmibe.
In our last, we gave you a picture of the
Brewery as it was when first explored by the
agents of the" New York Ladiea' Mission,"
a place where cunning crime crawled away
to hide, where loathesome disease and re
lentless poverty stored miserable victims
in short, where Satan held his unsightly pro
tracted meetings the livelong year such a
place it was. But be ours the easier, pleas
anter task, to tell you of the change that has
come over the place, and how the evil gen
ius of the spot has been bereft of power, and
a brighter spirit become its divinity. Here,
in this place, where, three years ago, mur
derers and thieves, were alone at home,
where not even the bravest man dare go un
armed, we now see well dressed, respectable
ladies going about on their errands of mercy,
unprotected and without danger of molesta
tion. At one house, we saw one whom we were
informed was the widow of a distinguished
divine and former President of an Eastern
College, a woman unused to sights and
sounds like these, administering comfort and
consolation to an unfortunate one of her own
sex, who, fallen from her estate, is now dy
in this wicked place, where even her pray
ers are lost in tho ever-ascending murmur of
groans and curses.
Again, we saw a "Sister of charity,'' with
her ostentacious hood and cloak, gliding so
gently from door to door, looking in so
kindly with her pale face, that though un
protected, except by her trust in that Pow
er which ia ever strong to save the holy and
the pure, the most abandoned would not dare
even to speak disrespectfully to her, should
they have a desire to do so, which we are
sure is not the case.
Here is a sight, then, which we would have
sectarian bigots look upon tno which an
gels may look down upon and rejoice two
gentle, . benevolent women, belonging to
the two great church divisions of Christen
dom. Protestantism and Catholicism going
almost hand in hand without discussing the
tenets of their respective beliefs, and with
out exasperating and perplexing themselves
about heterodoxy and orthodoxy, doing kind
ness in a true Christian Spirit tendering
mercy and comfort alike to the sick and dis
tressed of every sect and every belief. They
are examples which many of our political
clergymen may imitate with great honor and
credit to themselves; for it docs seem that
truo philanthropy can render itself much
more practical and effective here; that gen
uine charity " which vaunteth not itself and
js not puffed up," can exercise its tender
offices here to much better advantage than
it can in composing treasonous resolutions
against law and order, or even in Construct
ing dicUtive appeals to Congress on Ne
braska bills. Truly; if, by some enchant
er's power, the miserable denizens of our
great cities could be transformed from Buf
fering white men, and women, and children,
into' fat and swaggering negro fugitives,
Greeley,' and, Seward, and Garrison, and
that ilk, cold almost wear themselves away
in good deeds, and abolitionism and fanati
cism might almost have a surfeit of the great
work which would spread out before them.
But the misfortune- o.' having been born
white excludes the pauper and the lejjer
who infest the purlieus of New York, from
the magnificent charities of such excellent
and christian men, and it was not through
their influence or assistance that we are en
abled to contrast the old Brewery as it was
Lwith : : 7 77.
. THE OLD BREWERY AS IT IS. , ; , ;
Where it was there now is a Mission
building, in which there is S chapel, twenty
rooms for reformed families, two school
rooms, and the residence of the Missionary.
The school averages a hundred and fifty pa
rentless pupils, the year round, who are fur
nished clothes and tuition gratuitously. Thirty-five
per month are sent to good homes
found for them by agents of the mission,' in
the country. Beside the day school, they
have a Sunday school, and at this, and the
preaching in the chapel, they average, adults
and all, a 'weekly attendance of three hun
dred and fifty.' The parents of the children,
at least who call themselves such, are also
furnished with, clothing .upon, their signing
the temperance pledge and promising amend
ment In this way during the last year, one
thousand were induced to leave off strong
drink, and the majority, we were informed
by Mr.' Lakin the Missionary, remained true
to their promise, and the results are highly
beneficial. A" new building is about going
up, which will coBt; from, eight to ten thou
sand dollars, making, with what has been al
ready expended for the site i and the present
building, very nearly forty thousand dollars.
And all .this has been brought about, no); by

the quick, electric thrill of individual exer
tion.'1" Single-handed benevolence, personal
efforts, have, produced this, so: magnificent

Itcad This, Boys.
"This is the effect of shoe-making," said
a young mechanic to us yesterday, shaking a
well-filled purse in our face. It was not said
beastingly, but with an honest pride. We
wish to refer our readers to a few particu
lars in the history of this young man. He
is the fourth son of an industrious mechan
ic, who has known the height of influence
and the depths of poverty. His eldest sou
is reared for the ministry, and is, we believe,
a talented and useful member of society.
A second was a mechanic; hard-working
fellow. The third has acquired an excel
lent education, after much labor "and hard
work, through his own means. The youngest
son, him to whom we introduce the reader,
was brought up in the conviction that labor
was derogatory to respectability; that wealth
was the highest good that could be enjoyed
by mortals. He was early sent to school,
then to the academy, preparatory to a course
of professional studies. Meanwhile, his old
father was toiling and striving to attain the
distinction which are attendant upon Wealth,
merely for the sake of his children; but still
willing to forego all the pleasures and emo
luments of the world, if his sons could be
useful and lauded in the community.
The young man entered upon his studies,
convinced that he was the son of a rich man
comparatively, and consequently he was en
titled to a "full swing" iu all the frolics and
sprees that came off. So when his six
months were completed he came home to
his disappointed parents a wild, reckless, in
dolent boy, instead of tho sedate, fixed and
ambitious young man. He loitered about
home for 6ome time, but his father's consti
tution was broken, his sales low and his re
turns nothing. Starvation was before the
family. Fruitless and equally many were
the applications which the young man made
at the trading establishments in the city for
occupation. ' There were more clerks than
merchants, and more traders than buyers.
Worn out with fatigue and the stings of con
science for his former mis-spent time, with
his spirit humbled and his mind nerved to
undergo any privation rather than return
without employment to bis father's house,
the shop of every mechanic from the black
smith's to the jeweler's was beeeiged ; hut it
was a time of general depression in business
And every man looked out for his own inter
est. ; So without blame, conscious that he
had done his best to obtain in occupation the
young man went home. ; The well-spread
table, tho carpeted floor, and the refinement
which was visible in the household, but
seemed to aggravate the misery of its ten
ants. i ,., . , .
One day the young man was in the shop
of a shoemaker, who had amassed by his in
dustry a respectable , fortune, while he had
built up a reputation which can never die
from the memory of the community in which
he lived. "Why don't yoa go to work!"
asked the old man. I can't get anything to
do, was the response. "Come and learn my
trade," said the old man. It was a bargain.
The pampered son of fortune became the ap
prentice of honeBt; father - .' His good
habits endeared him sensibly to the gener
ous shoemaker, and the progress which he
made in his avocation, surprised every one
who had been formeily acquainted with his
idle habits.'" '' : ' ' 1
The old man died. During his illness he
carried on the business " of the shop, and
received for his services some old tools which
had been the property of his employer. He
commenced business for himself, but soon
went to a flourishing village and entered a
large establishment as a journeyman. His
love for study , and refinement increased.
The best, society was thrown epen before
him, the confidence of tho employer was
unbounded in his integrity, his shopmates
were pleased with his native talents and ad
dress he became the sun of their little cir
cle; and when he left his employer in the
hope of obtaining a better situation, his loss
was severejy lamented. v : " i
We were conversing, yesterday, with this
young gentleman, upon the false pride which
had ruined so many boys. '- "If I had obtain

Elements of Success In Business.
What are they? Knowledge to plan, eu-
terprise to execute, and honesty and truth
fulness to govern all. . Without these ele
ments, without them deeply impregnated on
his nature, no man can conduct any busi
ness successfully. Without them, he is like
a ship that has lost its rudder, er an engine
that has no regulator. " With them, success
is certain as sure as the decrees of destiny.
But with them, there are other qualities
which must be considered. A man must
not waste his life away in small things, if
he would achieve honor or renown. He must
strike boldly, lay out gigantic plans, follow
great thoughts, and drive them, curbed by
reason, to a successful issue, as he would
drive noble steeds to the end of journey.' He
must have the boldness to grasp, the vigor
and intelligence to execute, lie must look
above the ordinary ideas of those in the same
business as himself, and attain an eminence
far above them one they may have observ
ed, but had not courage and resolution to
ascend. It is a trite saying that some men
are great because their associates are little.
A bragging captain of country militia, a
spouting demagogue, and the chief of a half
exterminated horde of savage?, are all ex
amples of the truth of tho observation.
None of these must be emulated; none of
the traits of their characters must be held up
as models. A man who would acquire fume
in the present age of social and political
progression must not be behind the times.
He must not live in the -past, but in the fu
ture. He must not only be a thinking man,
but a working machine know how to form
great plans, and how to put them into force.
Mind must be the monarch of matter, and
annihilate time and space. . Man should not
be an animal, nor a mere machine of flesh
and blood; he is a child of God, and should
copy from his Maker. He should not be a
mere earth-worm; but live as befits a being
with a highly-gifted and Immortal soul!
There are men who peddle sand to gain
their bread; there are others who just as ea
sily build cities, create kingdoms, and revo
lutionize one-fourth of the world. One of
the first sect drives an old horse and cart be
fore your door, unloads his sand, carries it
into the cellar and deposits it in a bin, point
ed out by a greasy looking servant girl, and
and chalks the number of measures down
with a smile of satisfaction, as he wipes the
sweat from his brow. A ,member of the
other sits by his fireside, reads the ! news,
and sends a vessel with a valuable cargo up
the Mediterranean, to run the blockade of
the Baltic, and give him a clear profit of fif
ty thousand dollars! Both are men; noth
ing more or less. Each has bones, flesh,
and. muscle; eyes to see, and ears to .hear;
and perhaps in all physical respects,, one
is just as well provided for, as the other.
Where, then, . lies the difference! Not in
the body, but in the mind; mind rules mat
ter. One lives by a sort of animal instinct,
and is a sort of a living automaton; the Oth
er lives by calling into exercise the all-powerful
faculties of an immortal soul, and is a
possessor, in a bumble degreo, of the pow
er and magnitude that characterizes his
God! HunCs Merchant's Magazine.
''No One Loves Mc." '7
; Many 'moons . have waned since those
mournful words, "No, one loves me," fell
from the. quivering lips of, a. sweet, blue
eyed, white-souled maiden, with a cadence
so melodious and melancholy, that the tones
linger with us still, and. still awake pensive
echos in the heart. , ,;
"No one lov:s me," she said; and the sad
reflection touched her fair spirit with dark
ness, and tears gushed forth as if to wash
the ' sombre . shade away. "No one loves
me," Qnco more she murmured; and her
form dropped with her .wait of woe, as, the
lily when its spotless cup is surcharged with
dew. ,' ' .... '. , r
Thrice twenty suns had cast their fiery ar
rows o'er the Earth; and some one forever
loved that beauteous being; for she had been

and is Heaven itself.
Beneath that long grass in which . the
slender shadows, sleep, lies the clay of that
unbeloved" one, 0, no, not unboloved !
Even those that were human loved her, well
and earnestly; for white roses breathe their
pj-ayers in fragrance above her tomb; and the
hands that planted them, often fold them
selves in devotion there, and sobs steal out
upon the sacred and perfumed air, .
She deceived herself, poor girl, and , she
thought not of the hearts .warmed and throb
bed towards hers. Her nature blossomed
with affection, and she gave it forth instinc
tively, and it returned more plenteous than
it went. , ; .' ; .. 7,.. 7
There were. many, very many that loved

Ike Marvel. In his "Reveries of a Bache
lor," thus writes: A man without some sort
of religion is at best a poor reprobate, the
football of destiny with no tie linking him
to infinity, and to the wjndrous eternity that
is begun within; but a woman without it is
even worse a flame without a heat, a rain
bow without color, a flower without per
fume. A man may iu some sort lu his frail
hopes and his honors to this weak shifting
ground-tackle, to his business or the world;
but a woman without that anchor called
Faith, is a drift and a wreck! A man may
clumsily continue a sort of moral responsi
bility out of relations to mankind; but a wo
man, in her comparative isolated sphere,
where affection and not purpose is the con
trolling motive, can find no basis in any oth
er system or right action but that at spirit
ual faith. A man may craze his thought and
his brain to truthfulness, in such poor har
borage as fame and reputation may stretch
before him, but a woman where Can she
put her hope in storms, if not in Heaven!
And that sweet truthfulness that abiding
love that enduring hope, mellowing every
page and scene of life lighting tbem with
pleasant radiance, when the world's storms
break like an army with smoking oannon
what can bestow it all but a holy soul, tied
to what is stronger than an army with can
non! Who has enjoyed the love of a chris

energy, and hallow it with a tear
Primitive Man. -r-Horace Mann says, in
his inaugural address, that for more than
one third part of the duration af the human
race not a single instance is recorded of a
child born blind, or deaf, or dumb, or, idiotic,
or malformed in any way! During that whole
period, not a sngle case of natural death in
infancy, or childhood, or early manhood, or
even middle manhood, is to be found. Nor
does he think that during all that period any
one ever died of disease.. The first instance
on record of a son .dying before bis .father,
occurred two thousand years after the crea
tion. . He. thinks the introduction of disease
was the result . of the long continued viola
tion of the laws of our physipal . and organic
nature; Ho says: 'Man came from the
hand of God so perfect in his bodily organs,
so defiant of cold and heat, of drought and
humidity, so surcharged with vital force, that
it took more than two thousand years of the
combined abominations .of appetite and, ig
norance it took successive ages, of outrag
eous excess1 and 'debauchery-tbdrain off
his electric energies, and make hint siven
accessible to disease; and then it took ages
more too breed all these vile distempers
which now nestle, like yermih, in every or
gan and fibre of our bodies.-CArwian'Ai-vocati.

paid at the Museum of. Natorst History, in
Paris, to the cultivation of a plant doming
from China, and known under theriaraS of
Discorea .Japonica, '.This 'plant,- ftys the
writer of a paper sent to the Central Agri

the Jerusalem' artichoke resist la the open

injury. Several specimens of these roots,
of very large size, were presented, in 1852 to
the society, one of which', of a cylindrical
form, was three feet in length; another tu

pounds, the former having been in the earth
twenty months, and the latter sixteen. The
flavor of this vegetable1 is said to be more
