( h ! the Drink
The following word picture is an extract
from the temperance lectures of John B.
There is no power on earth that can make
a ficntl like the power of drink. One cir
cumstance in my own remissances I will
give you. I was asked tij an individual to
go and sec the hardest case then in town.
1 said :
' I have no right to go and see him , he
will say to me, who sent you to sec -me?
Who told you I was a drunkard ? You mind
your own business, and I will mind mine;
you wait till you are sent for. " 1 have no
right to go to him," 1 said.
" Well," said. he, " he is a hard case; he
beat a daughter of his fourteen year of age,
with a shoemaker's strap, so that she will
carry the mark to the grave."
Said I, he's a brute."
"Ilis wife is very ill now with theTfever,
andjthedoctorjthinks she cannot get over it;
the man has not been drinking for some
days, and if you can get at him nowp I
think you might do him good." "4.
I thought I would go. I knocked at the
door ; he came to open it. He had been at
one or two of our meetings. Tue-'monient
be saw me he knew me. '
Said he, " llr. Gough, I believe f " '
" Yes, that's my name ; would yoo be
good enough to give me a glass of water, if
you please tn
" Certainly," said he "come in.,; '
So I got in. I sat on one side of the ta
ble, and he on the other. There were two
children in the room playing together; and
a door open that led intto the room where
the wife was ill. I sat and talked with him
about everything I could think of but the
subject; I talked ol trade and crops, rail-,
roads and money matters; and then I got'on'
to the public houses, and then drinking, afld
he headed me oil again.
I looked and I thought I saw a malicious
twinkle iu his cj'e, as much as tosay,
" Young man, you are not tip to the business
yet." I was about to give it up; but I
think, providentially, I saw the children.
I said to him, "You've got two bright
looking children here sir."
" Oh ! yes, yes, bright little things!
" Said I. " You love your children, dou't
"Iiless the children! to be sure I love
Said I, " Wou'dn't you do anything to
benefit 3"our children?"
He look-d at iu as if he thought so e
thinc else was coming after that.
" Well, to be sure, sir," said hp, " a man
ought to do everything to benefit his chil
dren." Then I stood up so that I might get out
of the door as speedily as possible, and. said,
' don't be angry with me ; I am going to ask
you a plain and simple question. You
know who I am; therefore ycu won't be
anjry. Suppose you use no more intoxica
ting Potior: don't you think your children
would be better ofl'V'
Well, well," said he, "you have got mc
Said I, " You have got a good wife, havn't
" Yes, as rood a woman as ever a man
had for a wife."
" And you love your wife"
' To be sure I do ; it is natural that man
should love his wife."
" And you would do anything you could
to please Vours?" "
" Well,' I ought to."
" Suppose you were to sign a temperance
pledge; would that please her?"
" IJv thund:r! 1 rather think it would.
I conld not do a thing that would please my I
wife better than that. If I was to put my
name down there, why, the old woman
would be up and about her business in two
weeks, sick as she is."
Said I, "Then von will do it!"
41 Yes. I guess 1 will do ill" And he at
once opened a closet, took out a pen and
ink, and I spread out the pledge and he
wrote his name.
The children had been listening with eyes,
ears, and mouths wide open, while we were
talking about temperance. They knew what
a drunken father was ; they knew what the
principle of abstinence would do for him ;
and when he had signed, one said to the
" Father has signed the pledge !"
" Oh, my 1" said the other, " now I'll go
and tell iny mother!" and away he ran into
the other room.
Hut she had heard of it, aud I listened to
"Luke! Luke! Come here a moment
Said he, "Come in here along with inc;
come in and see my wife."
1 went in and stood by her bed side. The
faco was ghostly pale, the eyes large and
sunk decp in their sockets ; and with her
lung, thin, and bony fingers she grasped my
hand, and with the other took the hand of
her husband, and began to tell me what a
good husband she had. " Luke" said she,
" is a kind husband and a good father; he
takes care of the chilcrcn, and is very kind
to them ; but the drink ! Oh ! the drink
makes terrible difficulty." That difficulty!
Gcd only and the crushed wife of the in
temperate man know anything about it
The man shook like a leaf ; he snatched
the hand from the grasp of his wife, tore
down her dress from the shoulders, and
said, "Look at that!" and on the white,
thin neck, close to the shoulders, was a blue
mark. Said he, "look at that!" and when
1 first saw the mark of a bruise, I felt my
flesh creep. "Look at that sir! I did it
three days before she was taken down upon
the bed ; and she has told you that she has
a good husband. Am I ? Am I a good hus
band to her? God Almighty forgive me!"
and he bowed over that woman and wept
like a child, gripped the bed clothes in his
hands and hid his face in them. And she
laid her thin hand upon his head, and said,
" Don't cry, Luke ; don't, please don't ; you
would not have struck me if it had not been
for drink. Mr. Gough don't believe him ;
he is as good a man as ever lived ! Don't
cry Luke !"
One IIcndueu Tons of Grass to tiie
Ackk. Mr. James R. Nichols, of Haverhill,
N. H., writes to ihe Scientific American that
the statement it had published, taken from
an English paper, respecting tbe raising of
one hundred tons of grass on a single acre
of land pertaining to Lord Derby's estate is
undoubtedly correct or very nearly so. I
had the pleasure of visiting his Lordship's
estate last summer, while on a tour of agri
cultural observation in England, and I am
prepared to believe the statement My visit
was made about the first of June, and they
had secured two heavy crops of grass.gand
it is not improbable that four or five more
were cut during the long and favorable sea
son of the year. Four or fiye crops of tbe
heavy, stout Italian rye grass is not unusual;
and Mr. Mccbi, of the celebrated Trip Tree
farm, informed me that he had once grown
seven during the summer. This grass grows
with great rapidity in England, when stim
ulated by the rich liquid nutriment so liber
ally and continuously applied. Our farmers
have yet much to learn respecting the scien
cntitic cultivation of the soil. They have
ytt to learn how bountiful mother earth may
be when properly dressed and cared for by
the husbandman. It should be observed
that the clinutte of England is much more
favorable for tlie growth of the grasses than
our own, owing to the excessive humidity ;
but still, I do not know why several succes
sive crops may not be produced here by the
use of liquid manuring, and by careful sys

Associate yourself with men of good qual

An I.vcidf.nt or Spiritualism. A long
bearded customer recently entered a spirit
ual bookstore in this city, and applied for
an agency. He proposed to take a large
quantity of books to his part ol the coun
try "away out west," where he represented
he could sell them, as he was assured by the
invisibles. -The enterprising bookseller was
ef course dwlighted with the prospect of a
sale; but his enthusiasm waa somewhat
dampened when his long bearded customer
remarked that he had no money, and want
ed the books entirely on credit
" Are yoti responsible ?" was the natural
inquiry of the merchant
" What evidence of your reliability can
you furnish ?"
" I have the best of backers, men whose
names you know well."
The merchant's countenance commenced
" Very well," said he, " let us see your
Thereupon the customer prcatiiUd the
following document :

Through Jane E , medium.
The bookntller remarked that the backers
were good if the medium was reliable, but
he thought on the whole that he would pre
fer to keep his books. The customer here
upon denounced the bookseller as an impos
ter, telling him that he did not believe in
his own doctrine, and that the spirits would
expose his duplicity to the world. Of this
tic felt assured by the spirits of prophecy
The bookseller was not convinced.
TAnocA. Many persons are familiar with
this as article of diet, who do not know Low
it is obtained, or really what it is. It is the
produce of the Cassava root There arc
two varieties of the cassava plant, both na
tives of South America ; the one is the bit
ter, and the other is the sweet cassava, but
both are used for food. The first in its nat
ural state is highly poisonous, and the In
dians use its juice for poisoning their ar
rows. It is from this cavassa that tapioca
is made, but with all the poison removed.
The poisonous principles has been found to
be very volatile, hence by submitting the
roots to the action of heat, it is all driven
ofT; it is only when eaten raw that it is
highly dangerous. The roots are first wash
ed, then reduced to pulp, and the juice al
lowed to drain out The pulp is then heated
in a pan until it becomes slightly roasted ;
when in this state it forms cassava bread,
the principal food of the natives. The juice
which has been allowed to filter from tbe
pulp is of a milky color, and is allowed to
settle for some time in wooden dishes.
A deposit of starch then falls to the bot
tom; the poisonous juice is now run off, the
starch washed, and all the moisture driven
off by putting it on hot plates until it is dry.
It is afterwards granulated in seives, and in
that state forms the tapioca, of which very
excellent puddings are made. The heating
of this starch on hot plates drives off all the
Recent experiments have been made in
France by distilling the cassava root and
condensing the vapors, for the purposo of
ascertaining the nature of its poisonous pro
perties. A very small quantity of Prussic
acid was thus obtained, about 0.004 per cent
of the vapor, but the roots employed by the
experiments were not fresh, hence it is rea
sonable to suppofe that they contain more
of this volatile poison when fresh dug from
the ground, as cows have instantly dropped
down dead from eating them. No other poi
sonous substance was found. Cassava con
tains a great amount of starch, no less than
23 per cent, and 5 per cent of sugary mat
A good story is told of a grave divine on
Cape Cod, not long since, who awoke from
a comfortable nap in bis chair, and discov
ered his amiable helpmate in the perform
ance of an act for which Gov. Marcy once
made a charge of fifty cents to the State
in other words, mending his pantaloons.
Inspired with a love of fun which seldom
affected him, he inquired, " Why are you,
my dear, like the evil adversary spoken of
in Scripture ?" Of course she was unable
to discover any resemblance. "Because,"
said he, " while the hutlandman slept, you
sowed tit tare"
An old Dutchman is astonishing the peo
ple of Rochester by swallowing pebble
stones in public. He puts bis hands behind
him, and swallows them readily, and smacks
his chops as if he relished them hugely.
He says he has swallowed stones since he
was eighteen years of age and never suffer
ed any inconvenience from the practice. On
the occasion alluded by the American, the
old fellow swallowed over fifty stones. We
should like to board about fifty such chaps.
Animated Nature. .
Throughout all the created universe, ani
mated beings are plentifully distributed.
"They exist in countless numbers both visible
and in invisible to the unassisted eye, al
most everywhere in earth ; sea and air.
Geologists tell us, that the quantity of fossil
remains is so great, that with the exception
of a few of the metals and older rocks, there
is probably not a particle of matter on the
surface of tho globe that has not at some
time formed part of a living creature; in
some instances their shells are formed so re
markably minute that forty millions of them
would not make a thimble full.

Mountains are the highest elevation of the
earth's surface. A great many persons think
that the mountains on the t aith cause it to
be an irregular body and not a sphere; but
the highest mountain known rising about
2S,0o0 feet is enly one five-thousandth part
of the earth's greatest circumference, and
one sixteenth-hundredth part of its diame
ter. In plains mountains are seldom found,
and when they are they are usually of vol
canic origin. Very frequently the mountain
chains are hundreds of miles in length. In
the lower mountain ranges the valleys be
tween the mountains are very fertile and
well adapted to cultivation, but in the higher
chains they are dreary and not fit for man
to live in. On the side of the mountain to
wards the ocean it is most always rough and
steep, but towards the interior it is a long
gen tie slope. It appears that solitary moun
tains are of volcanic origin. Most all the
gold and silver that has hitherto been found,
has been found in the mountain ranges run
ning north and south. The gold and silver
that has been found in California and Aus
tralia has also been found in the mountain
ranges running north and south. A con
tinued line of mountains is what is called a
chain or range. The highest peak of the
mountains i3 called the culminating point
A mountain system consists of a number of
ranges or chains extending in the same di
rection and have an apparent connection

Children ix Russia, In the life of a
Russian peasant there is a period anterior to
all tunics, mantles, and even sheepskins,
during which they live a kind of mummy
life, only, unlike the Egyptian, it is the first
instead of the last stage of their existence.
For the youngest children are always swad
dled, and rolled up tight in bandages, so that
they may be conveniently put away without
risk of getting themselves into mischief or
danger. On entering' one of their houses,
an enthusiastic traveler thinks be has come
upon some Pagan tribe having their idols
and penates, with the heads well carved out,
and tbe rest of the body In block. He 1 oks
curiously at one laid up on a shelf, another
hung to the wall on a peg, a third swung
over one of the main beams of the roof, and
rocked by the mother who has the cord
looped over her foot "Why, that is a
child !" cries the traveler, with a feeling si
milar to thai experienced on treading upon
a toad which was supposed to be a stone.
" Why, what else should it be ?" answers
the mother. Having learnt so much in so
short a time, the inquisitive traveler wishes
to inform himself about the habits of the
creature ; but his curiosity being somewhat
dampened by the extreme dirt of the little
figure, he inquires of the parent when it is
washed. " Washed !" shrieks the terrified
mother; "washed! what! wash a child?
You would kill it"
Mb. Marct's Last Portrait. Mr. Marcy
appears to have died from diseases of the
heart; and although it was not generally
known that he was subject to heart disease,
be on one occasion, during bis last visit to
New York, evinced, in an unmistakable
manner, its symtoms. While having his
photograph taken by Bardy, he was reques
ted by the artist to stand, in order to corres
pond with most of the other portraits of
eminent men in the gallery. Mr. Marcy,
however, attempted it in vain, the palpita
tion of his heart requiring him either to sit
or move about His restlesness was so no
ticeable in the effort of standing for his pic
ture that he was finally taken sitting in his
chair a posture rather more familiar to him
of late years than any other. The likeness
itself, which is the last ever takent of the
great statesman, is perfect His garmets are
a little more glossy and fresh than in the
original, but the face, the features, and what
Shakespear called the " visage of his mind,"
is there. The shrewd, wise half smile with
which, when in a jocose and amiable mood,
he would at once please and baffle those of
bis friends who tried to know more of his
mind than he chore to reveal, is here caught,
and perpetuated with a grace almost beyond
the reach of art N. . Eve. Pott.
Painting and Poetry-, .
Painting and Poetry, alike in their na
ture, and yet Very unlike, lortn a theme f al
though it may now be a hackneyed one) to
be p.cglected in no coming age, and by no
people who have tastes to admire the beau
ties of nature, and minds to look aloft to,
and praise tbe God who gaye them being.
It has been well said, that poetry is the soul
of man. I may repeat it and add, painting
is nothing less than the same in miniature.
That there are imperfections in these as in
all things else none will deny. Perfection is
with God alone. His creatures are as He
would have them, aspirants, and he smiles
upon them as such. That mild, sublime po
etry can melt the hardened hart we all
know ; that it serves to raise in the lowly
mind a sense of its own dignity, and to in
fuse within it a knowledge of what it can
and should be, ali will admit when they read
ancient and modern poetry. A Homer has
written though he wrote in an age, when,
comparatively speaking, tbe world was in
darkness in regard to refinement and litera
ture we, of the present age, read his pro
ductions with a thrill of joy known to none
but those who read, and to be described but
by a poet's pen. Of an Ossian, too, I may
speak. Homer was a Greek, Ossian a Celtic
bard, whose career was among the highlands
of Scotland. His productions were the na
tural flow from the mind and heart, as were
those of Homer, who lived a (hoOsand years
before him. Osaian's poenta, never gay, but
high toned and of lofty bearing, did excite
and lead to victory the now dead Celtics ;
they have little less power to excite and en
noble us living Americans. The refined
Virgil is not to be forgotten; his poems are
duly appreciated by all minds capable of so
doing. The poets of more modern times are
in no way inferior to the ancients. Their
productions are, many of them, the overflow
of a soul filled with gratitude, and a heart
warm with love to God and man. Since a
Burns, a Racine, an impetuous Byron, an in
firm but high-minded and persevering Scott,
a passionless Wordsworth, a Shakespeare,
(of whom I need not speak, for none but a
Shakespeare can do him justice,) have writ
ten, who shall say we can live without poe
try ? When poetry declines let us look for
the cause ; and satisfy ocrselves whether
Longinus be right, who has attributed such
to covetousness and effeminacy, regarding
them as two dispiriting vices. Painting is to
the eye what poetry is to the ear. He, who
can listen to the one and gaze upon the

There is scarcely a word in the Encash
language more precious than that of friend.
It is suggestive of much that is pleasant and
joyous in social intercourse, and tells of love
and solace when the heart is made sad by
trials. A friend ! How lone and aesolate
would be the condition of a person without
this boon. In all ages and climes, by all
classes and sects, friendship has been sought
and honored. Who would be willing to go
friendless into the walks of life, to share
friendless its numerous joys, and to meet
friendless its inevitable sorrows? 1 think
there is no one. A true and faithful friend
is one who will tell us of our faults. It is
one of the severest tests of fidelity to go and
tell a bosom companion of his faults, but 'ti3
an tary matter to proclaim his errors
abroad. It costs little self-denial to whisper
them in the ears of those who ought not to
be informed of them. No person is a true
friend who is not ready to be a faithful ad

In our social relations we arc continually
reminded that friendship is like other
things, uncertain. One of the dark scenes
that mars human intercourse is that of
friends speedily changed to enemies. Every
neighborhood can furnish one or more of
these scenes. It is no strange thing for
friends who lore to-day, to hate to-morrow,
and frequently the strongest friends become
the bitterest foes. The rich man has many
friends. And that it is the fruit of his rich

that when his wealth is gone, his friends go
in about the same ratio. There is no cer

joyments of the world. The wisest counsel

to-morrow. The friendly relations of life
are subject to change. But we forget too of

Savior and ourselves, are not subject to
change, at least on his part. He is the same
yesterday, to-day, and forever. Sallik.

Lamontague, a boy only thirteen years of
age, saved eight children from drowning at
the burning of the Montreal, some of them
nearly as large as h tnself. He is said to be
the chief support of a widowed mother at

tall of his age, is of a delicate form ; and it
is really wonderful that he should have had
the presence of mind and courage to grap

by seizing the door of a state room, placing
the children upon it, and pushing it before

he succeeded in landing on dry rocks, or on

have, otherwise, met with hundreds of oth

. It is morning. The king of flay (s slowly
rtsing from his royal couch : his daughters;
the bright sunbeams, are preparing to act
rortb upon their daily missions of lovo and
mercy. Let us for a time follow the wan
derings of our fair princess 89 she winds her
way to our little earth. A dark cloud now
andtben flits before ber, or a piercing wind,
a tagrant froffl the north, darkens her path
way, but regardlcsa of these trffle shi
presses forward upon her mission. Nature
rejoices in ber coming for she has a blessing
for all. The old trees reel her soft touch,
and she creeps gently between the leaves,
down to the little Ho vers almost bidden in
the tali grass: she woos the little songsters
by her winning smiles, to warble Another
song of praise; she finds her wsy to the
banks of the little rivulet and whispers to it
gentle words, they dance lightly on, mur
muring praises of love to the fair Sdnbcam.
Let as turn for a moment to the " hearts and
homes" cheered by her presence. There
stands a prison, bat tbe fair Visitant from
the balls of hcaveor passes not by tbe cell of
the poor criminal. Behold him stretched
upon his hard coich through the long
night, revenge only bas filled his breast, his
hard heart is yet onsoftened, bat he is
aroused as the faint light creeps through hia
grated window and falls upon his face, and
as he returns its gaze, a glimmer of the far
distant years when his mother blessed him,
steals over him, his heart is touched tho

rests ber loving hand npon the careworn la
borer; she kisses the cheek of the gentle
child reposing in its soft slumbers; site
steals to the chamber of the sick and dying,
and as her light illumines the bead of the
dying one, it seems an emblem of that
brighter crown in reserve for the trusting
spirit She is now peeping into the win
dows of the school house to leave a blessing
upon the heads of the little ones, they love
her soft caress and gentle smile. Now she
is softly entering the old church to beautify
tlie temple of worship; a bridal group
stands before the altar vows of love are
passed between that noble youth and fair
maiden; trustingly she yields all to him
who tias promisvd to love and protect her,
and as the beamifrtl sunbeam rests upon
them, they fuel the encouragement that
theirs is to be a life of happiness. She goes
onward with a smile for all what a motley
group pass by, some there are perchance'
who heed or care not for sunlight or dark
ness. But tlie day wanes, and we have wit

by ber presence such are her daily mis

The strawberry season Is always antici
pated with great pleasure by children. They
blossom about the last of May. The flowers
are white and the " little folks" always watch
them with great anxiety. When the flow
ers disappear, they leave little green clusters.
In about two weeks they begin to ripen.
Then is the time to lay plans for pic nics and
strawberry excursions. The best place to
find them, and where they grow to mere
perfection, is around decayed old stumps.
How beautiful the bright red clusters look.
When many children are gathered together
to go on strawberry excursions the berries
disappear into their mouths sooner than in
their baskets. Strawberries are favorite

they grow to a very large size. Most per
sons that have gardens have strawberries in
them. They often ripen before they havo
grown on account of the sun's heat being so
great In places where the heat is milder
they have time to attain to a large size be
fore they ripen. Then they are so mellow
they almost melt in your mouth. It is very
pleasant to hunt after tbem in shady woods,
where the heavy foliage of the trees prevents

Sad Case or Insanity. The train from

road yesterday, brought in a German woman
whose case indeed was a sad one. Some
weeks ago she arrived in New York city
in search of a brother who had been in that
place for a couple of years, and who had
sent her on the necessary means to bring
her over to this country. What was her
surprise on her arrival that her brother had
gone to Chicago. She immediately set out
for that place, and when she reached there,
she was horror stricken to learn that be was
dead and buried. The shock proved too
much for her her reason fled and she is a
