OUR NATIONAL WEALTH.
A British Statement of the
Material Prosperity of the
United States.
A report recently made by
her majesty's secretary of lega
tion at Washington, and trans
mitted to the foreign office,
states tbe following facta, as
showing the astonishing pro
grecs being made by the
United States, ia spite of the
loss of their ocean commerce,
and the prostration of their
shipping interests:
"The wettlth of the union in
1870 was $30068,488,507,
against $t6159,616,0GS in the
year I860, and $7,135,780,288
in 1850, so that notwithstand
ing the exhaustion consequent
on the lour years' war, and the
loss of $2,000,000 in slaves, the
increase in the last ten years
is rather over 80 per cent.
Tbe thirteen leading mines on
tbe Comstock lode alone have
produced in bullion, Irom 1861
to August 1871, $81,355 002
and .this, too, notwithstanding
very wasteful and careless
mining, now belng jarjly aitor !
reeled. 1 believe it has been
estimated by competent judges
that there now accumulates
during the winter months, in
the various western mines, of
precious metals, an amount
equal to about $10,000,000,
which during the spring and
early summer finds its way
east to toe shipped abroad.
Even the Llano Estacado, a
barren stepe, destitute of wa
ler, and long tbe terror ol
travelers to the Pacific, lias
lately been discovered to be
rich in mineral wealth. The
daily average production ol
petroleum in the United
Slates in 1871 was about 18,
100 barrels, against 17,900 in
1870, while fresh impetus is
likely to be given to it in some
of the western states by its
proved adaptability to the
smelting of iron ores, which
is already becoming an import
ant industry in the wesc.
'The unlimited ore deposits
of the iron mountains and Ihe
knobs of the Ozarks, their
proximity to the coal beds ot
the prairie state& of Missouri,
the inexhaustible limonites ol
ihe sub-carboniferous and the
carbonates of the coal meas
ures of western Kentucky, all
promise to make Belmont,
Cairo, St. Louis, Carondolet,
Grand Tower, Evansville, fa
ducah, and other places, great
interior centres of an iron
trade looming up in the possi
bly not very distant future.
In Alabama, a late geological
survey estimates the coal fields
of Warrior, Cahawba and
Coosa, at 5,500 square miles,
wilh about 19,000,000 tons of
coal to the square mile; tbe
accompanying iron ores are red
and brown hematite, black
band and fossiliferous. The
quantity and quality of these
ores, their proximity to both
coal and fluxes, and the low
rates of transport to the sea at
Mobile, are considerations well
calculated to attract foreign
and especially British, enter
prise to these regions, and that
in spite of any present political
drawbacks."
Itemarkable Telegraphic Feat.
tJapt. J. II. Lulls, a Vermont
telegraphic operator,bemg on a
snow-bound train where severe
suffering was anticipated.with
out speedy relief, cut the tel
egraphio wires, took their ends
into a car where they could
be sufficiently warmed to ad
mit of being readily handled,
and by sticking the ends to
gether was able to "call' tbe
operator at one of the princi
pal stations on the road. Lie
then sent the following mes
sage: "Trouble. Answer slowly.
I'am working wilhout any in
strument; I will receive your
answer through my tongue'
Captain II. received tbe an
swer by putting one end of the
wire above and tbe other under
his tongue, and letting the
electric current pass tlirouth
it, when he was able to read by
tbe succession ot sharp and
somewhat painlul electrical
ehocks. Ilia success was per
fect, and he not ouly sent and
received messages for the con
ductor, but for several of tbe
passengers- The only ill con
sequences of th exploit was
the total loss of taste which
Captain 11. suffered for several
days afterwards.
Do not let your little ones
grow up, blue and pinched, in
an atmosphere of frost. Do
not repulse them. With your
hearts overflowing with the
real mother love,ho can you?
The affection of the child is
pontancous. The baby lips
are lavish of kisses, and the
soft baby arms twine instinct
ively about the mother who
takes care of and feeds. Bui
as the child grows older, let
her repulse him ever so little
let him come to understand
hat his caresses are a "bother,"
he feels the chill and retires
nto himself. But let her cher
ish and return the childish
tenderness, and he will grow
with it, never be foo proud to
show it. Then, tender mother,
you shall have your reward.
Your young men and women
will keep to tbe affectionate
ways ol childhood, and their
caresses, trentle and sweet shall
fall upon your heart like dew.
I love to bear a boy say that
he is never going to be too big
to kiss his mother, and I love
to see a young lady with her
arms about her mother's neck.
It shows a loving confidence in
which there is security for her.
No girl is so safe as she who
tenderly loves and trusts a
faithful mother.
Experiments have been mado
at Suresnes, France, before a
large number of interested ob
servers, on the possibility ol
preserving vines from tbe ac
tion of frost, by artificial clouds.
In a vineyard of twenty hec
tares there were placed 360
iron vessels containing a heavy
oil. All these firepots were
lighted at once, and a thick,
black cloud was interposed be
tween the vines and the sky.
When the weather is calm, and
the eky clear (and it is in such
circumstances that the frosts
which so injure vines in spring
mostly occur,) this cloud con
tinues all the time necessary
to exercise its protective influ
ence. Tbo cost ot the opera
tion (including pots, oil, and
labor) was estimated at about
five irancs per hectare, or 2.5
statute acres; ai'd all tbe vit-
ioullurists expressed tbem
selves as struck with the ad
vantages of this means ot prea
ervation.
A Linn girl who bad great
kindness of heart for tbe ani
mal creation, saw a hen pre
paring to gather her chickens
under her sheltering wings and
.houted earnestly: "Ol don't sit

birds, you great, ugly old roos

Anecdote of John .Bnnyan
To pass awa the gloomy
hours ia prison, Banyan took
a rail oat of his stool belong
ing to bis cell, and with his
knife fashioned it into a flute.
The keeper hearing music, fol
lowed the sound to Buayan's
cell, but while he was unlock
ing the door the ingenious
prisoner placed the rail in the
stool, eo that tbe searchers
were unable to solve the mys
tery; nor during the remainder
of Bunyan's residence in the
jail did they ever discover how
the musia was produced.
From all old accounts of
Bedford there is an equally
good anecdote, a man came to
Bunyan in jail, one day, with
what he professed to be a mes
sage from the Lord. "After
searching for thee," said he, m
'half tbe jails in England, I
am glad to have found thee at
last." 'If the Lord sent thee,"
said Bunyan,j8aroastically,wyou
would not have neeJed tot ike
so much trouble to find me
out, for be knows I have been
in Bedford jail these seven
years past."
Tab spirit ot rebel fiendish
ness is rtill transparent in the
South and especially in Geor
gia. Tbe latest evidence of
it is civen in a recent issue of
the Georgian, a paper publish
ed at Athens, in that State, tbe
editor choosing the following
language to announce the mas
sacre f Gen. Oanby by the
Modoc 3.
"Captain Jack and his war
riors avenge the South bv
murdering General Oanby, One
ot her greatest oppressors.
' a a
Keep the ball in
motion! Three cheers for the
gallant Modocs?"
It Is very evident from the
tone of the above that all the
Modocs of the country do not
nhabit the Oregon lava beds.
A general Indian war, it
eems, after all, is not to be on
the programme this spring
The Modocs, through their em-
isaries, have been able to stir
np a few scattered remnants of
tribes within reach of the "lava
beds," in Nevada and Oregon,
but the great mass of the In
dian race are beyond the reach
clMcdoc influences. The peace
Commission maintain and are
extending their friendly rela
tions; the warlike rumors of
the past few weeks have gen
erally proven to be falsehoods
disseminated by those to
whom the "wish is father to the
ihought."
Among the drowned sailors
of the Atlantio was a woman,
whose sex was discovered upon
recovery of the body from the
water. She went by the name
ot Bill, rnd bad made three
voyages. She was excessively
fond of tobacco, but was a fa
vorite and free from many of
the vices of the common sailor.
She was an American, but her
history was buried with her,
for who she was or where she
came from, or why she adopted
man's pursuit, will never be
known.
Wordsworth' said Charles
Lamb, "one day told me that
he considered Shakespeare
greatlr overrated. "There is"
said he, "an immensity of talk
in all Shakespeare wrote, and
people are taken by it. Now,
if I bad a mind I could write
exactly like Shakespeare."
"So you see," proceeded Lamb,
quietly, "it was only the mind
that was wanting.''
