But the largest heads at Humdrum have
not Ghristtan, but 6nly selfish hearts beating
in their bosom and sending life' into the
brain. ' So these calculators think the men
oi Humdrum shall worlt uourteen hours a
da y as before. - It would, be dangerous, say
tliey, to set fire to so much time. ' The de
luded creHiures would soon learn to lie and
steal, and would speedily end by eating one
another up. - It would not ba Christian to
leave ihem to this fate. .Leisure is very
good io us but would be ruinous to them.
So the wiso men; of Humdrum Dersua'do
their noiglibors to work the old fourteen
hours; more is produced ihnn is consumed.
So they send off the superfluities of the vil-
liige, and, in return,, sring back tea, and
porcelain, rich wines -and thowy gew-gaws,
and fashions Hint change every month. . .
Tho strong headed men grow rich, live
in pnlacci; ibeir daughters do not work, nor
their sons dirty their hands. They fare
sumptuously every day aro clothed in pur
ple and fine linen Meanwhile tho common
peoplo of Humdrum work as long as before
iko machines were invented, and a little
harJer. They aro , also blest by the "im
provements." The young women have red
ribltons on their bonnets, French gloves on
their bands, and shawls of India on their
shoulders, tinkling ornaments" in ihoir
ears. The young mau of Humdrum is bel

tains for his windows, and a showy mirror
iu hang on his wall. For these valuable
considerations, he parts with the nine hours
a day which machinery has saved; but has
no more bread than before. For these bles
sings lie will make his body a slave, und
leave his mind all uncultivated. lie is con
tent io grow up a body nothing but a body.
So thai if you look therein for his under
standing, imagination, reason, you will find
them I iko three grains of wheat in three
bushels of chaff; you will seek ihem all
day buforo you find ilicm, and at last ihey
are not worth your search.
At Humdrum nature begins to revolt at
ike factitious inequality of condition, and
thinks it scarce right for breud to come fast
est into hands that add nothing io iho gen
eral stock. So many grow restless, and a
few pilfer. In a ruder state, crimes are
few the result of violent passion. At Hum
drum they are numerous the result of
warn, indolence, or neglected education;
they are, in a greui measure, crimes against
property. To remedy this new and unnatu
ral evil, there rises u court house and a jail,
which must be paid lor in work; then judges
and lawycia and jailors are needed likewise,
in this artificial state, and add to the com
The old Athenians sent yearly seven
beautiful youths and virgins as a tribute to
ihe Moniiuur. The wise men of Humdrum
shut up in jail, a largo number, a sacrifice
to the spirit of modern cupidity: unfortunate
wretches who were the victims and foes of
society; men so weak in head or heart, that
their bad character was formed for them,
through circumstancos, fur more than it was
formed by them, through their own free
will. Still further, the men who violate the
law of the body, using the mouth much and
tho hands a little, or iu the opposite way,
soon find nature taking vengeancj for the
offence. Then unnatural , remedies jnusi
oppose the artificial disease. In old time
every sickly dunco was cured "with mother
wort and tansy," which grew by the road
ride, suited all complaints, and was admin
istered by every mother in the village.
Now Humdrum has iis "Medical Faculty,"
with their conflicting systems, homeopathic
and allopathic but no more health than be-
lore. 1 hus the burden is incroased to little
purpose. . , . , i
1 he strong men of Humdrum havo grown
rich and becomo educated. If one of the
laboring men is stronger than his fellows,
he, also, will become rich, and educate his
children. - He becomes rich, not by his ovn
work, but by using iho hands of others
whom his cunning overreaches. Yol he is
not more avaricious than they. He has
porhaps the average share of selfisfinoss.
So he cois and saves, and lakes cure of
himself a part of their duty - which iho
strong have always known how to perform;
though the moredifhcult part. How to take

He viewed the Iron foundry and machine
shop, and was, just opposite the warp mill as
tho 'hands' were going in from dinner. The
girls were hurrying as onlylactory girls can
hurry, and Jonathan unaccustomed to such
an array of plaid shawls and hood bonnets,
deposited his good stick upon the stairs, and
stalked in 'tasee what the trouble was.'
The clatter of the machinery and. th
movements of the operatives soon .absorbed
his whole attention. Being, however, ol an
inquiring turn of mind and seeing nuch thai
was calculated to perplex one whpee obser
vations in mechanics had been confined to
threshing machines, and corn shelters, he
began 10 push vigorous inquiries in an airec

quainted successfully, with the external and
internal economy 'of 'Picker,' .'Boater,'
'Lanwinder,' 'Doubler.' ond 'Speeder.' By
2 o'clock he had extended his researches' as
far as the 'Breakers,' and 'Finishers. ,
He reached the latter just as the card
stripper was 'stripping he flats.' . In this
operation the cylinder of the card is exposed
to view, and is seen revolving with a very
pretty buzz. Not sa.iisfied with contempla

reach him, he was run through and manu

personal danger here shot across our hero's
mind ; and he bogan 10 retreat precipitately
without wailing for an answer.
There was not much room to spare be
tween himself and the gearing of tho card
behind, another step backwards completed
the ceremony of introduction. His un
whisperables being of large 'calibre,' the
process of snarling ihem into a knot was no
ways slow. Our hero 'gave tongue' instan

embodiment, the muslo was melodious. . His
explosive tones were scientific, and did hon

The gearing by this time had wound him
up so that he was obliged to stand on tip toe.
His hands were revolving vigorously behind
him, but he dare not venture them too
near the 'seal of war' lest they should be
drawn into hostilities.
The caid stripper threw off the belt, but
the momentum of the cylinder kept it re
volving, and our hero supposing it in full
operation, burst out anew:
'Oh, stop her ! do 1 aint well and orter

Tho card was stopped at last, but Jona
than's clothes were so tangled in the gearing
that il was no slight job to extricate him.
Like Uthello 'he was not easily moved.'
and it was only by cutting out the whole of
iho 'invested territory,' that he was finally
released. : . , v.

sweted the stripper. ,
Our heto not caring to resume his 'pursuit
of knowlodge urder difficulties,' a pair of
overhauls were charitably loaned him, and

Again, society is shocked by the exposure

cessity of a reform In the laws and the man
ner of their execution.. Numberless are
the various bhades in the character and
causes of crime, and as numberless are the
various reforms and preventatives proposed
But, we think, it is easily made apparent
mat an graaes 01 crime, irom the petty
slander up to the most deliberate and atro
cious murders, are but manifestations of the
fallen and depraved character of unregene
rate man. :, . v . v
Civilization, as the term is commonly un
derstood, works no radical reform upon man
character, li does not eradicate the sources
of crime, any more than the cultivation of
the earth destroys its power to throw ud
thorite and bramble and noxious weeds.
But its agriculture removes the asperities of
Iho soil, gives It a more pleasine surface,
and .employs it in the production of useful
fruits, so civilization, undoubtedly: destroys
the rougher and ruder traits of savage life,
and developer the mental capacities and re
sources of man. Yet, as tares grow up wiih
the wheat, and weeds rise to choke the grow
ing crops, so vice and crime appear indige
nous in the . human heart, and continue to
spring up and bear their evil fruit amidst all
the glories and blessings of civilized society.
The tiller of ihe soil who is slothful and
careless, allows his farm to be overrun with
weeds an the strength! of -the soli fe-irsfrted
in their production, so there are those fn ail
civil izdd communities who neglect to culti
vate their beuet principles, and who allow
their evil passions to gain the ascendancy.
It is not very strenge that so much vice
and crime prevail in what are called civil
ized communities. Civilization not based
upon, and directed by, purifying religion,
will' never reform the evil passions of men.
t is the quick and healthy conscience with-
n, and not the outward social arrangements
and obligations, that must restrain men from
wicked and criminal acts. What may be
called intellectual civilization, is better than
a state of savageism, but it is only the pro
gress of a truly Christian civilization -thai

Poverty, in itself, is not a crime. No

destitution, The poorest man who walks
this earth of sorrow, or who toils in vain to
clothe and feed his children, can stand
the presence of the man of millions, with
no consciousness of inferiority. But when
poverty is the result of crime, il becomes at

KisgiNO. A correspondent of the, Wil

Ot course v u must be taller than the

your left arm over her right shoulder, diag
onally down across her back, under her left
arm, press her lo your bosom, at the same
time she will throw her head back, and you
have nothing to do but to lean a utile for
ward and press your lips to hers, and the
thing is done. Don't make a noise over it,
as if you wore firing off percussion caps, or
trying the water-cocks of a steam engine,
nor pounce down upon it like a hawk upon
an innocent dove, but gently fold the damsel
in your arms, without deranging the econo

pressure upon her mo'uth, revel in the bliss

Ii is not' any design tb enter into the dcrtlU..
of this subject; but aslmost farmers, like my-?
self, are not provided with cellars to their-,

practice lo prevent ua toss with (v6ry bene
ficiat results. '' It is I'as follows: 1 ' ' '" 1 "
In the fall, after removinjj aJl tlie mauiire'
I haul a quantity of dirt obtained from, ponds
andeiher sources, into , my yard, and, by
the way, evory farmer who has a small,.
stroam or run of wsior upon' his , premisSs, '
should have one or more ponds, os the mud .
which ihey collect, and which, wero.it not . .
foi ihem, would pass down the stream, and
be entirely lost, is itself a valuable manure. ,
I then place smbte manure upon the lop
of this bed of dirt, which absorbs and re- ..
tains the liqujd portion of. the former..
As it is a well k-nown fact that nitrogen is'
tbo clement mosi nendlu! to bo applied 10
tho soil ; as ii is, in a majority of cases tho
one which the soil is most deficient, that it -
s contained in a much larger quantity in ihe"
liquid than in the solid excrements of cot-
iiu, 11 follows therefore, that iho dirt forma
a very valuable fertilizer. f '.:.-' jfe

to be very good practice; for by protect

iti January, green peas as succulent, to'all

The modd of preparing them, Is to pluck,
when of the proper sizo for use, . shell .'"and
dry oil cloths in the shade. All tlie care
necessary is to prevent them from moulding;
ihii done, they will be fine and swaei in the
following spring. Beans may be preserved
ib the same way with perfect success.
Green corn may be preserved in the foN
lowing manner : Pluck the ears of greon .
corn' when fit for boiling, strip offtlio husks,
nd th sow the ears into a kettle of boiling
wator; toave them in until the water boils
over them, when ihey must be taken out,
shell off the corn by running the prong of
a fork along ihe base of ihe grain, including
the heart or germ, which, is the swecteti
After being ill us prepared, it must be
spread out on thin cloths in a shady, airy,
place to dry it; it should be stirred every
day-limit dried thoroughly v When cooked
it should be puiin cold water and boiled an ,
hour or more, the water to be pretty welt
boiled off.. When the water is nearly off
little milk added to it will improve tho taste.
Beans, peas l and green' corn will retain
their original flavor more porfectly by being
pressed in hermetically soaled cans. '. '
