A worthy man of Paris town,
Come to the bishop there ;
His face, o'erclouded with dismay,"
Betrayed1 a fixed despair. ?
"Father," 'said he, *?a sinner vile
Am i, against, my will;

But am a doubter still.
??Sure* wero I not despised of God;
He would not loave ind so,
To struggle thus, in constant strife,
Againut the deadly foo."
The bishop to hii sorrowing son
Thus spoke a kind relief:
'?The King ot France has castles twain;
? To each he sends a chief.
??There's Montolhery, lar inland,
That stands in place secure ;
While La Kocbelle, upon the coast,
Doth sieges oft endure.
??Nt?iv, for thcHe castles?bothpreserved
First in his prince's love
Shall Montclhery's chief be placed,
Or La Bochelle's above ?"
?!Oh, doubtless, sire," the sinner said,
"That king will lote the most
The man whose task was hard, to keep
His cusilc on the coast!"
??Son," said the bishop, "thou art right;
Apply this reasoning well;
My heart is Montolhery fort,
And thine is La Uochellc !"

A company has been organized in this

that the butter is genuine, the means ol
producing it being alone artificial; in

butter factory and cleansed. Then it i

boiler with as. much water in bulk as
itself. A sfcam pipe is iutroduocd
among the particles of the siut and they
are melted. Tho refuse or membrane
?oes to the bottom o' the water, the
oily substance floats and is removed.
This litter consists of butter matter and
steariue. A temperature of 80 degrees
melts the former and leaves tho Stearine
at the bottom. The butter matter, or
oreim, is drawn off; then about 13 per
cent of frc?di milk is added and the
necessary salt, and tho wholo is churned
lor ten or fifteen minutes. The result
is Orange County butur at about one

The stearine is sold at twelve oenis a

refuse at seven coots a poun I to the

BUTTER FOR SUMMER TOURISTS.
All (he leading Btoamship lines be
tween here and Europe uro to be sup
plied this summer with the newly inven
ted butter. Iu taste und appearance it
is precisely similar to the finest county
butter, made fron the milk of live cows.
Several of tho leading men iu the butter
trade hav ; purchased stock, as have al
so many ol the presidents of the steam
ship hues and the proprietors of tho
leading city hotels. Professor C. ().
Dorcmus has testified to tho succoss of
the now uiochod of butter manufacture
and prophesies groat prosperity for tho
new corporation, l'rofossor P.iraf, tho

will drive live cow buttor out of the
market altogether. Tho few unscientific
outsiders who are acquainted with tho
i facts now first mado public, regard the

extremely odd to them that the same

Recognition of Merit in the South.
There was no part of tho country in
which talent and virtue, no matter how
humble its origin, or from what locality
.of the Uni?n, had speedier recognition '
than iu the Suuthcru States. The illus
trations of this truth are almost number
let's. The great George MeDuMie, of
South Carolina was of nuniblo parentage.
The father of President Andrew Jackson,
a dative of North Carolina, was a poor
mat}, and his mother belonged to a hard
wmking family of linju weavers. The
lather of John C. Calhoun lell his
family in moderate circumstance", and
after his death his son resided with his
widowed mother, laboring ou the farm.
Andrew Johnson ol Tenucssec, was
originally a tailor. These are only a
few out ol many, instances of the prompt
and practical recognition of labor in the
South, without regard to origin. The
same is true, whatever may have been the
loeulity from which talent came. John
M. Berrieu, the distinguished represen
tative in former days of 'Georgia iu the
United States Senate, was a native of
New Jersey. Johnson; of Virginia, a
of New York, was elected Governor
of Virginia over George \Y. Summers a
native Virginian. The father of the late
Dr Josiah Clark Nott, principal author
of tho famous ' Typos of Mankind," by
Nott .4tid Gliddon, was a nitiw of Hast
ern Connecticut, but moved to Camden,
South Carolina, where he practiced la*
with s?cei is, was elected to Congross,
and ended his days as a Judge of the
State Court of Appeals. The most
brilliant and popular orator iu the
Southern States, Sargent S. Picntiss, of
Mississippi, was a native of Maine, and
j otio of tho most fam ots Southern editors,
George I>. Plenties, of Kontuuky, was a
nalivo of Connecticut.?The list might

How the Boy Arises.
Calling a boy up in the morning can
hardly b^ classed under tho head of
"pastimes," especially if the boy is loud
of excrciso tho day before. And it is a
little singular that the next hardest
thing to getting ti boy out of bed is
getting him into it. There is rarely a
? mother v. ho is a success at rousing a
I boy. All mothers knows this; so do
their boys. And yet the mother scouts
logo at it in the right way. She opens
the stair Ja >r and iusiuu itingly observes:
"Johnny!" There is no response"?
?Jim.my '." Still no response. Then
there is a short sharp "John !"
followed a moment later by a pro
longed and emphatic "John Henry l"
A grunt from the tipper region
signifies that an impression has been
made, and the mother is encouraged to
add, "You'd better be getting dowu here
to your breakl'.tat, young man, bjfore 1
come up tbcro, an* give something you'll
feel." This so .startles the young man
that he immediately goes to sleep again.
And the operatiou has to be repeated
A father knows nothing about this
trouble. He merely opens his mouth
as a soda bottle ejects its cork, and the
"John Henry!" that cleaves the air of
that stairway goes into the boy like elec
tricity, and pierces the deopest recesses
of his very nature. And ho pop9 out of
the bed into his cloths, down tho stairs,
with a promptness that is commendable.
It is rarely n boy allows himself to dis
regard the parental summons. About
once a year is believed to be as often as
is consistent with tho rules of hoa th.

A Valuable Invention for Ladies.
It was Mover a turn fur inveution
that caused the disaster. Moyor design
ed a new kind of "pateut, iuflatcd
gossamer bustle" for ladies. It was a
thin bag of Indii rubber which was to
be inflated with gas to give it the proper
detention and sufficient lightness. When
the model was completed, Mrs. Mover
determined to try it. She went into
the yard and tied the maching under
her dress, while Moyer turned on the
kitchen gas to fill tho bag. It worked
well enough for a few moments, when
all at once Mrs. Moyer began to ascend
with frightful rapidity. She had barely
time to scream dowu to Moyer to put
the children to bed early, and to tell
Mary Jane to set bread, aud the next
instant she was two miles above the
Bnow line. It was embarrassing for
Mrs. Moyer?very embarrassing, as J
.he could not roach round to the bustle
to turu off - the gas iu order to come
j down. So Bite" floated about up there
among thunderbtcrms and clouds aud
crows and aurora borealises for several
hours enjoying tho scenery am! studying
the air currents, and wishing sh i had
brought her muff and a bo.?k to read.
Then she commenced to doscend gradu
ally uuttl she came within a couple ol
hundred fed of tho earth. She thcu
screamed some as she floated along, and
several enthusiastic students of natural
history tried to biiug her down with
shot-guns, under the impression she was
some new variety of ostrich or flamingo.
But a sudden gust of wind struck Mrs.
Moyer, and blew her against the Pres
! byteriun church with such force that
ihe "inflated gossamer bustle" exploded
violently, impressing the sextou with
the conviction that the sacred edifice
had beim strnok by lightning. l>ut wheji

A writer iu Chamber's Jourual, on
?Short Speeches and Coun Correspon
deuce," gives a budget of anecdotes some
of which are fresh, aud others, well?
otherwise. Here are the best of them :
' An American judge once intervened
iu an odd way to prevent a waste of
words, lie was sitting in chambers and
seeing, from the piles of papers iu the
lawyers' hands, that the lirsl case was
likely to be hurdly contested, ho asked,

pay it,' said the judge, handing over the
monoy ; 'call tho uoxt oase.' He had
not the patience of taciturn Sir William
Gruut, who, alter listening for a couple
of days to the arguuicuts of couusel as to
the construction of an A?t, quietly
abserved, when they had done, "The
act is repealed " One morning a woman
wu.s shown into Dr. Abernethy's room;
before he could speak, she bared her
arm, saying ''Burn," "A poultice," said
tho doctor. Noxt day she appeared,
showed her arm and said, "Better."
"Continuo the poultice." Some days
elapsed before Abcrncthy saw her again;
then she said, "Well, your fee V* "Noth

tho most sensible woman I over saw 1"
Lord Aberdeen, tho Premier of the
Coaliiion Ministry, was remarkable for
tho little tuso he made of his tonguo.
When, by way of reconciling him to
accompanying her on a soa trip, tho
tJut on smilingly observed : "I believe,
my lord, you are not often seasick f"
'Always, madam," was tho brief but
significant reply. ''But," said she, "uot
very seasick?" "Very, madam," said
the uncompromising minister. An in

Tartar in tho Duke de Knquelaire. The

was hailed by tho bishop with "Hi!
