Tqp Poor to Taps a Newspapeb.
An anecdote is told of a farmer
going* one day to the office of &
New York jour nal and ordering his
paper stopped, because he was too
poor to take it any longer.
"Suppose we make a bargain,"
said the editor, "in thiB.way. Go
home and Beleet a hen that ?hall
be called my hen; sell the egg* that
tho hen lays during the year,' and
send the proceeds to me as your
BubsoriptiQiiTfor the paper."
The Isomer was pleased at ? so
oasy a.wajrt? pay for his i
and readily consented. , The result
was, that doing the year the hen
paid lor the paper twice its regular
price of subscription. ' I
This is by no means n'pnx** fic?
tion, for the same may be true in a
great multitude of oases. Almost
every one wastes .and throw away
more than enough money during
the year to get a weekly or daily
newspaper that would furnish him
with intellectual food, and keep
him posted in the busy, stirring
events .of the day. A very small
retronchmfcnt in the luxuries that
almost every one indulges in would
secure1 a; .dapiy1 visitor full of gossip
about*.';ine doings of ' the great
world around us; full of Stirring
events in the history that is every
day being made in our own coun?
try, and full of .useful general ,jn,
fornmtion, and facts in literatures,
science, and art. Bt-sides it is'the
duty of-the,peoplo to" support the
press, for it has always stood as a
grand. bulwarki between them
and political and military oppres?
sion; it has Bounded', the notes of
warning that has often aroused
them to action; it has stripped the
borrowed cloak from corruption
and venality in high places, and
showed them in all their deformity,
and is to-day the great friend of
education, justice, religon and
peace. The press speaks every?
where, at all times, carrying light
in places where othewise perpetual
darkness would reign. 1 And when
we remember what the World would
be without the press?how dark?
ness, ignoranoe, nee and oppression
would, flourish unopposed?let no
one an^- longer say that he is too
poor to take a newspaper.

ToiTj5rrc..~The Pall Mall Gazette
says: "The latest novelty in wo?
man's attire does hot . sound com?
fortable. She has,' it seems,
adopted a garment in which it is
almost impossible to' walk or to sit
down; or to enter a carriage, and
which c^n only be worn by throw?
