us hope that, as the world grows older
and better, journalism will become less
sensational and more substantial; that
readers who hunger fur the details of
railroad disasters, gallows scenes and
Brooklyn horrors, will turn to the con
genial pages of the Police Gazette, if the
law of that enlightened age will tolerate
such sewerage of scandal.

Joshua Reynolds, often painting in his
imperishable colors, your sister, the
queenly Siddons, as the Muse of Tragedy
said to her, "I am resolved to go down
to posterity on the hem of your gar

with Swinton on the ragged edo of bat

ed your lives at the cannons mouth for
a paragraph, you would have given eve
rything but your soul's hereafter for that
blank page in which, as an argosy, to
sail into all the future eching your
name! And you would have written
there good works, kind words, full ot
humanity and hope, words clear and
pure as the arctic sun-beams, no sicken

grim social horror. Every page before
yju is that unwritten page. In this age
of types and stereotypes, of books and
libraries, of newspapers with their small

assimilating with the world's life, of tel

European Breeds of Neat Cattle ia
Several of the more valuable breeds of
neat cattle were established early in the
Old World, and improved during the
period spoken of. Pedigrees began to be
carefully looked after. The first volume
of the EnglUh Short-Horn Herd-Booh ap
peared in 1822, but its pedigrees began
at about this period, or a little earlier.
Only thirty animals are recorded that
flourished in 1780 and earlier; and while
the blood of unrecorded animals after
wards came in, for the present purpose
the pedigrees of all the thousands of
thorough-bred short-horns date back to
about that time, theoretically at least.
Precisely when the first importations of
this breed were made to this country is
uncertain. It is now believed that they
occurred very soon after the Revolution
ary war, and there are traditions of sev
eral importations before 1800. Soon after
that date importations begun in earnest,
and have gone on ever since. The first
volume of the American Sliorl-Horn Herd
Booh was published in 1846, the thir
teenth last year, and in tbem are record
edj some 33,000 pedigrees. Certain
strains of this breed have thrived peculi
arly well here, and the sale of one herd,
September 10, 1873. at New York Mills,
was doubtless the most extraordinary
cattle sale that has ever taken place any
where. At this sale 109 head sold for
about $382,000, or an average of over
$3,500 per head, the highest price being
$40,000 for a cow, and several sold for
over $20,000 each, a calf but five months
old selling for $27,000. The Devons
were also introduced early, and previous
to 1840 were imported more abundautly
than the short-hums, and have perhaps
had as wide an influence on the improve
ment of American cattle as the last
named breed, or even a wider. Now all
the more distinguished breeds of Europe
are successfully bred here, and some five
or six of the moat niimerousor important
have American herd books now publish
ed. The effect of all this has been to enor
mously elevate the quality of American
cattle ; and so completely has the mon
grel or ''native" stock been improved
through these that in certain agricultur
al societies where premiums are offered
tor the best "natives" it is fuund that all
that are offered as such are, in fact,
''grades," having had an infusion of bet
ter blood within three or four genera
tions. Even the Spanish cattle of Texas
and California are being rapidly changed
aud improved through and by these
better breeds. Harpers Magazine.

One of the last as well as one of the
neatest hits made by Geii. Butler, just
before the close of the last session in
Congress, occurred d urine the famous
"dead-lock" fight on the Civil Rights
Bill, The question of adjournment was
under consideration, and Gen. Butler
had stepped oyer to Mr. Randall's desk
for a private consultation. Butler fa
vored a Sunday session. Randall op
posed. "Bad as I am, I have some respect for
God's day," said the Democrat, "and I
don't think it proper to hold a session of
Congress on that clay."
"Oh pshaw ?" responded Butler, "don't
the Bible say that it is lawful to pull
your ox or ass out of the pit on the Sabbath-day?
You have beventy-thrce
asses on your side of this house that I

"Don't do it, Butler," pleaded Sam. I
have some respect for you that I don't
want to loose. I expect some day to

The Wait Met Christ.
Strauss neglectad in his work the point
which should have been most essential
the origin of Christianity, the supreme
and critical epoch in which the doctrine
arose. Liberty and the Republic died in
Rome. The philosophers of Greece had
been converted, with the Stoics, into
practical moralists. Jerusalem, which
always endeavored to preserve its God
apart from the world, experienced the
desire of the Sadducees to give him in
communion to all nations and make Him
known to all the world. The deserts
were filled with saints, with ascectics and
hermits, who clamorously demanded the
dew of Heaven for their desolate, thirst
ing souls. In Egypt, wherever there
passed a conqueror, a tribune or a poet,
the people asked if this was he who they
hoped for. Alexandria brought together
the ideas of the East and West, as if to
form a new dogma. The Ebionites and
Esscnes were scattered about Jeratem,
making public profession of poverty, with
the presentment of the rich renovation
of the spirit. The Genostics brought in
vague echoes of the Oriental religions,
reflections of the early twilight of the
religious conscience. And all this crisis
was collected and personified in a youth
of the most benighted region, the most
oppressed people, the divine Youth who
annihilated religions caste and gave His
life for the two grandest ideas of future
civilization, for the moral liberty of our
souls and religious equality before God
for all men. Harper's Magazine.

One of the little things which a farmer
may neglect to his cost, is that of testing
field and garden seeds before planting
them. Most important in this matter is
the corn crop. An experienced corn
grower can generally give a pretty safe
openion as to whether corn will be good
for seed. There are some special marks
which help to determine this question of
vitality, but when it is so easy to deter
mine the question definitely by planting
a few kernels, it is not wise to run even
a slight danger of being mistaken. In a
less important degree, the same is true of
We strongly advise taking a few seeds
of each kind to be planted in a box of
good earth, keept in a warm room and
watered as needed. In a lew days the
plants will appear, and if all or nearly
all the seeds have germinated vigorously
the quality ot the seed may be consider
ed positively settled. This work should
be done promptly, so as to get another
assortment if that on hand prove defect
