Why Married Persons Live Longest.
Dr. Hall, in one of his excellent "Health
Tracts," gives the following reasons why
marriages are favorable to health: Batchelors
are always in a state of unrest; they feel
unsettled. If in-doors after supper, there is
a sense of solitariness, inducing a sadness, if
not an actual melancholy, with all their de
pressing influence ; and many, many hours
iu tjie course of the year are spent in
gloomy inactivity, which is adverse to a
good digestion and vigorous and healthful
circulation. His own chamber or house be
ing so uninviting, the batchelor is inclined
to seek diversion outside, in suppers with
friends, in clubs, which are intoductories to
intemperance and licentiousness, or to those
more unblushing associations, which, under
the cover of darkness, lead to speedy ruin
of health and morals ; and when those are
gone, the way downwards to an untimely
grave is rapid and certain. On the other
hand, marriage lengthens a man's life, by
its making home inviting by the softening
influence which it has upon the character
and the affections; bv the cultivation of all
the better feelings of our nature, and in that
proportion saving from vice and crime.
There can be no healthful development of
the physical functions of our nature without
marriage; it is necessary to the perfect man,
for Divinity has announced that it is "not
good for a man to be alone."
Marriage gives a laudable and happy
object in life, the provision for wives and
children, their present comfort and future
welfare, the enjoyment in witnessing their
happiness and daily and hourly participa
tion in affectionate interchange of thought
and sentiment and sympathy ; these are the
considerations which antagonize sorrow and
lighten the burdens of life ; thus strewing
flowers and easting sunshine all along its
Voltaire said : "The more married men
you have the fewer crimes there will be.
Marriage renders a man more virtuous and
more wise. An unmarried man is but half
of a perfect being, and it requires the other
half to make things right ; and it cannot be
expected that in this imperfect state that he
can keep a straight path of rectitude any
more than a boat with one oar can keep a
straight course. In nine cases out of ten,
where married men become drunkards, or
where they commit crimes against the pence
of the community, these acts were laid
while in a single state, or where the wife is
as is sometimes the case, an unsuitable
mutch. Marriage gives him a centre for
his thoughts, his afl'ections, and his acts.
Here is a home for the entire man, and the
counsel, the afl'ections, the example, and tlie
interest of his 'better-hair keeps him from
erratic curses and from falling into a
thousand temptations to which he would
otherwise be exposed. Therefore, the friend
of marriage is the friend to societv, and to
What ever may be said of Voltaire's the
ology, his statement on the marriage ques
tion is certainly correct. Statistics prove
that a large majority of our criminals, State
prison convicts, etc., are unmarried. Think
of this, young man, and if vou wish to es
cape all that is bad, try to form a partner
ship with a good woman, and you will be

The Narrow-Gauge Road.
The two-feet jrauje road is eominsr into
use m this country. Several are being built
in Canada, one from New York into Con
necticut, and one from the
iron regions in
Kentucky to the Eastern Kentucky roaL
California is early to adopt this admirable
means of inter-sectional railway transporta
tion, Jhaving built one as a feeder to the
Union Pacific railroad. A road on this plan
is about to be built from Denver City, in
Colorado, to El Pasa, on tlie Kio Del Xorte.
We observe that the press in every quar
ter is approving very earnestly of this style
of railway, and urging its advantages upon
the public attention. As we have said be
fore, its introduction solves the dilficulty
heretofore existing in the way of supplying
cross "sections of country with railroad com
munication. The isolation of many com
munities, their being deprived of railway
transportation in this day of railroads, is
greatly to their disadvantage; restricting
their intercourse, affecting the value alike !
of the lands, their products, and, conse
quently, their industry. The narrow guage,
with its cheap construction, the ease with
which it overcomes sharp grades and tra
verses reverse curves, is fitted so admirably
for the relief of such isolated communities
that it should be hailed generally as one of
the most beneficent improvements of the
day. It is a great liberator, and will set
free a world of energy and enterprise that
would without it be paralyzed. lllchmond
What Every Young- Man Should Do.
1. Every young man should make the
most of himself, intellectually, morally, soci
ally and physically.
2. He should depend, upon his own efforts
to accomplish these results.
o. lie should be willing to take advice
from those competent to give it, and to fol
low such advice, until his own judgment
or convictions, properly founded, should
4. If he is unfortunate enough to have a
rich and indulgent father, he must do the
best he can under the circumstances, which
will be to conduct himself very much as
though he had not these obstacles to over
come. 5. He should remember that young men,
if they live, grow old, and that the habits
of youth are oftener than otherwise perpe
tuated in the mature man. Knowing this
fact, he should "govern himself according-
(3. He should never be discouraged by
small beginnings, but remember that nearly
all great results have been Avrought from
apparently slight causes.
7. He should never under any circum
stances, be idle. If he cannot lind the em
ployment he prefers let him come as near
his desires as possible he will thus reach
the object of his ambition.
8. All young men have
rights," among which none is
more sacred than the privilege to be "some
Something for All.
So various are the appetites of animals
that there is scarcely any ydant which is not
chosen by some and left untouched by others.
The horse gives up the water-hemlock to the
goat, the cow- gives up the long-leaved water
hemlock to the sheep, the goat gives up the
monkshood to the horse, &c, for that w hich
certain animals grow fat upon, others abhor
as poison; hence no plant is absolutely
poisonous, but only relatively. Thus the
spurge, which is noxious to man, is a most
wholesome nourishment to the caterpillar.
That animals may not destroy themselves
from want of knowing this law, each of them
is guarded by such a delicacy of taste and
smell that they can easily distinguish what
is pernicious from what is wholesome; and
when it happens that different animals live
upon the same plants, still one kind always
leave something for the other, as'the mouths
of all are not equally adapted to lay hold of
the grass, by which means there is surHcient
food for all.
To this may be referred an economical ex-
neriment. well known to the Dutch, that
when eignt cows nave oeen 111 a pasture, ana
, '1.. 1.1" - - .
can no longer get nourishment, two horses
will do there very well for some days, and
when nothing is left for the horses, four sheep
will live upon it.

An Experiment with Seven Different kinds
BY GEORGE C. DIXOX, CAME BOX, GA.
There are now in the market for sale about
forty different kinds of Fertilizers. Each of
these are supported by a long list of certifi
cates from various planters who testify that
they have, used them some one and some
another t?ut, all bear witness to good re
sults. No proprietor or agent is without his
list of certificates to show that his particular
Fertilizer is as good, if not better than any
other. Now, now are planters to know
which is the best ? Notwithstanding these
long lists of certificates, we find some farmers,
yea, too many, who find that by practical
application- after, giving them a fair trial
prove them to be worthless fertilizers (or so
called fertilizers) and come out in debt and
denounce all Guanos.
Now if farmers would put themselves to a
little trouble we can soon find out the stan
dard or best Fertilizers, but to ascertain this
we should try different kinds of Fertilizers,
side by side, and publish the n-sults ofthese
tests, firing to tJw. farming com mat it g tJie
method of application, mode of culture, and
the cJiaracter of tJw land planted. Even if
but one kind is used the result should be
made public. Such a policy will enable the
farmer to gain information, not only as to the
best aud most reliable Fertilizer applicable
to the different soils, but of the best method
of application. If any particular Fertilizer
proves worthless puMisi it, but state at the
same time the character of the land and the
methods of application and cultivation. Liy
so doing farmers will be able to judge as be
tween the Fertilizer and the experimenter;
and thus be enabled to decide between the
various kinds of Fertilizers; and what is
more, to determine whether the manufac
turer or manipulator is deteriorating his pro
ducts bv adulteration, to reap fraudulently
a rich harvest of wealth, or is perfecting his
manufacture year by year.
This year I have tried seven different kinds
of Fertilizers, side bv sik viz :
1. Bradley's Super-Phosphate of Lime.
2. Whann"s liaw Bone.
3. Wilcox, Gibbs & CVs Manipulated
Super-Phosphate of Lime.
4. Patapsco Guano.
5. My own Compound.
6. Soluble Pacific Guano.
7. Mapes Super-Phosphate of Lime.
The land was a very poor old field, clay j
near the surface. It was planted in cotton !
last vear but "lay out" the year before. The !
rows were three feet three inches apart. I j
did not break the land "flush" but ran fur- j
rows between the old rows, with an eight
inch shovel plow, made with two wings in
order to leave the furrow well open. This
shovel plow ran twice in the same furrow.
Then I drilled the Guano in this furrow at
the rate of 32U pounds to the acre, ran a No.
10 cast iron plow (Yankee) about eight inches
deep on each side, covering the Guano.
This left a ridge on the old bed where the
old cotton stalks stood, about seven or eight
inches wide, which I "bursted out" by run
ning my two-winged shovel plow very deep.
The laud was planted April 10th and culti
vated with the sweej-plow ami hoe. The
rows of this experimental field were one aere,
or 70 yards long.
The following is the result: I picked from

As before stated, the land was very poor,

were three feet three inches apart, there
would be sixty-four rows to the acre. Now
as Whanifs liaw Bone stands ahead in this
experiment, let us make a calculation as to
whether or not it would pay, and if it would
pay, how much ?

Plan for Raising Water-Melons.
As I am very successful raising water
melons, I thought I would send my plan.
The spot of ground that you expect to
plant, prepare well early iu "the spring, by
plowing Jeff ; the first of April lay off
your hills eight fetepart each way, dig out
holes 2 feet deep, 2 feet square ; in each
hole put half peek rotted cotton seed, half
peek of hog pen manure, and a table spoon
ful of salt; mix well with a hoe, adding
soil until you get the hole full up to 3 inches
from the surface, then draw on light loose
dirt until you get it level ; do not elevate
it, for by so doing you cause them to die
out when summer comes; draw your hoe
around to form a furrow; plant half-dozen
seed in a hill soon as up, thin out to four;
second hoeing thin to two. Continue to hoe
them every four or five days, and just before
the vines start to run, side with a plow, first
one way, then the other ; plow out first one
way, then the other I mean cross-plowing.
In about ten days give another plowing and
hoeing. Continue to keep the ground loose
just as long as you can do so without injur
ing the vine, for in no case should thev be
moved. Drive little sticks across the vines,
thus: X, to keep the wind from blowing
them about. By the above plan, I have
gathered over foot) melons from half acre of
ground, some weighing over 40 lbs. Young

Chinese Servants in New Jersey.
Mr. Robert Beatie, the woolen manufac
turer of Little Falls, who has had much
trouble with his domestics, procured two
Chinese for house servants. The Paterson
Press says :
"Formerly he employed two 'girls' to do
the household work and then the ladies of
the family had to do half the work them
selves, or it would go undone ; on washing
days a third woman had to be employed,
and even then his family had to do all the
cooking. Three weeks ago two young Chi
namen were introduced instead of the tvo
girls; the men went quietly, but steadily,
about their work, never needing to be shown
but once how to do a thing, and never for
getting to do what was to bo done, ami
gradually they took upon their own shoulders
all the house-work, leaving the family noth
ing of the kind to do. On washing-days
they get through by three in the afternoon,
and at the same time doing all the other
housework; the next day they iron, and all
their laundry operations are in the very
best style. Notwithstanding all this, these
heathen are inclined to complain that they
haven't enough to do, and want to bake for
the family, besides ! Their cooking is ex
cellent and very clean. They always pre
pare the materials for breakfast over night.
These men are about 18 years old, and dress
in a sort of 'composite order' of costume;
but their hair is arranged in strictly Chinese
fashion, with a long cuependant. They eat
the same food as other people about them.
(.July one of them readily understands Eng
lish, and he speaks it but little. They do
not practice any heathen customs, at least
not openly. These two men were hired at
San Francisco by Mr. Beattie for three
years (they would not contract for longer
than five years), for $10 per month, gold.
He also paid their traveling expenses to
Little Falls, which will make their labor
cost an average of 18 per month, gold,
during three years of their service."
A Manly Act. Some time since Gov
