THIS" Mill differs from all others In tho construe tlon of
the upper or Running Ktone, which Is composed of
French Burr Blocks, enclosed in a cast Iron Case, which
forms the back and hoop-of the Stone with a Cast Iron Kve.or
Bash, than Is ofgreatcr external diameter at the bottom that
at the top, which Is secured to the back by four bolt', no that
every block Is In the form oladove tall, which gives greater
strength to aStonothananyothor method which Is requiied
In small mills, where the stone is run with great speed, and
becomes dangerous If not strongly made. It also gives any
weight to a stone of small diameter that is required without
having it thick or high, that makes it top heavy.
This mill Is a square frame made of wood or castiron,tn
the form of a bus!:, with liridge-trce, Spindle Balance, HlDg
Driver, and Kegulatin; Screw, and grinds ui on the same
principle as a lare mill, differing only in the Runner Stone;
this being of great weight enables ltto grind nearer the cen
ter a greater quantity of grain wlthlcs owor than any oilier
mill now in use. This mill lsportable, and may be attached
to steam, water, horse or hand power.
ALSO, all sizes of Krench Ilurr .Mill Stones, manufactured
on the same principle.
Joseph II. Burrows, of Cincinnati, Is tho Inventor, for
which he obtained Letters Patent in 18t2. For alllnfringe
ments the purchaser will be held responsible for the right
TheseMUlsdonotreaulreaMillrightto set them up; and
all that Is necessary to put them in operation, is to attach a

large to run a twenty-four Inch Mill SM0 revolutions per
minute, attached to Gin, Steam, orWater Power. Bytho
steady application of two horse power the Mill will grind s.x
lo 8 bushels per ho.rof good meal: and will grind wheat
as well as com. The thirty inch mill, if put to its fullest
speed, will grind from ten to flftoenbushelsperhour.
These mills are warranted to be in every respect as recom

The subscribers offer the following good and suflicien
reasons why every fam ly in the South should use the
Wrought Iron Cooking Stocti.
Manufactured bv them and called
1st. It is of Southern manufacture, being made by the
Skibsprjhers lj thp city of Nashville.
2nd. It is of such desirable material that it inn.-t outlast
three or four cast iron Stpvps.
Sd. It is more complete in its cooking apparatus Hum any
cant iron P'nvp, i
1th. It is so simple In construction that a child ran use 1
51h. Itseconomyof fuel is such that it does not use half j
asmuch'fuel as a cast iron stove of the same size. j
Gth. In the economy of time it is important, as it can be :
heated ready for use in a few minutes.
7th. Its uniform regularity, as every part of the stove is '
heated at thesametime,
' 8th. Its perfect reliability as we have put up over four
hundred ot them in this State, and no one has ever failed
to giveentue satisfaction. SN0AY, MACKENZIE A CO.

There's not a place-where man may dwell
Rut he can hear a Sablath 11L

Howls like a famMied wolf along,
Or w hen the south winds scarcely tnm
The light leaves of the trembling fern
Although the cloi-1er-chimes rinjr, there.
The heart is called to faith and prayer.
For all Creation's voices tell
The tiding- of the Sabbath btlb
Go tothe billows let them ponr
In gentle calm or headlong roar;
Let the vast ocean be thy home,

In rippling swell or stormy roll
The crystal waves sliall waku thy soul,
And tllou shall feel the hal!owedrpell
Of the wide water's SaMath bell.
The lark upfin his skyn-anl way,
The robin on the heiigeway spray.

The owl mid the cypress gloom

A vesper to the great Unknown;

Of God's unnumbered Sabbath bells.

"Will you please to (ell rue a true story, grand
ma," said Charley, as Mrs. A. entered the nursery
'Yes," said Irs. A., will tell you about a dear
little boy I saw yesterday. I called, to see liis
mother on business of importance. As she is yery
influential in society, I 'was rejoiced to find lier at
home and in her nursery. I had heard that she vas j
a very good mother, and was glad to be introdu
52 to lier three lovely children.
"As we retired to the parlor, the youngest child,
boy of throo years of age. was very importunate
tat lie might be permitted to accompany us, as
Wfcre the other two.
'Their mother told tltein, very decidedly, but in
her usual calm tone of voice, that she wished to Ih
with her visitor alone, by ourselves.
'We remained, I should judge, perfectly unmo
lested from any disturbance, for nearly an hour
not one wliiinjier of noie or word of impatience,
not even one footstep did we hear from either of
'When we opened the parlor door we discovered
this lovely infant of three years old, a plump,
rosy-checked, curled-headed little fellow stretched
at full length upon a new and leautiful rug, fust
asleep, with liis little face as close as posible to
the craclc of the parlor door.
'What do you think, Charley," said his grand- I
mother; 'would the majority of children, inlikocir- j
cumstances, have paid such deference to the wishes i
of their mother!" I
"I fear not, grandmother," said Charley. '-On
the contrary. I think very many children would
have rushed to the parlor door and thumped and
thumped, and called and called, till their mother '
would have been so much ashamed that she would j
either have opened the door and let them in, or have 1
called for thennrseto come and take them away by j
main force." j
"It was indeed a lovely sight," said Mrs. A.,
"when his mother took up her little one, smother- j

"This mere infant felt all the luxury which comc j
from an obedient disposition, and his present re
ward, though he was half asleep, was greater than
any disobedient, half-grown boy ever knew any

"Grandmother," said Charley, "I am more and
more resolved to try to be a good and obedient j
child. I intend to strive always to do right, for j
only when I do right am I happy."
"You will always find this to be the case," said
Mrs. A. "Though yon are now not quite ten yeare
of age, you are old enough to understand and ap
preciate the privilege of having had parents who
early dedicated you to God. and who always re

"Grandmother," continued Charley, so tenderly
filled with this ever beautiful theme of conversa
tion, "do yon remember the anecdote that a yonng
lady told u about my father when he was a very
little boy2" said Cltarley.
"What was it?" said Mrs. A., wishing to know
how much litis child had treasured up of a passing
"She said she called one day to see and converse
with niy grandfather, who was her pastor.
"She found him busily engaged in fixing a door,
which would not readily open nnd shut. He had
.taken off the hiuges that he might raise it up a
iittle. . ; i-..
"The hinges, with the screw., were lying by hi
side on the-floor, 1 '; ' " " "
'My father was standing quite near, with his lit
tle hands clenched tight together upon his chest.
'This young lady, who was quite intimate in the
family, asked him why he clasped his hand3 so tight
together. He said he did not know if his hands
were loose bat that he might be tempted to meddle
with the screws."
"I do remember," said hit grandmother, "with
gratitude, this and many other incidents, which
were perfectly characteristic of yonr father."
"Do yon recollect, grandmother, how that young
lady cried when she saw mo; she said I reminded
hor so much of my father I was the very imac
of my father when he wa3 of my age. I wish T
might grow up to bo as good a man ns he was.
"My 'lear Charley," said Mrs. A., "then you mustW
tivc a praycrmi life, for I well remember asking
this darling child, when about eight years of age,
if he maintained secret prayer; he replied, 'Yes,
mother, I always do.' '
"I asked him what he prayed for.
"He replied. 'I always ask God to teach my dear
parents, that they may know how to teach ns.' "
Mrs. A. added: "My dear Charley, as onr con
versation began this evening by noticing an act of
obedience on the part of a littlo child, I will tell
you two passages in tho early history of your father,
which your grandpa and I always thought laid the
foundation for his remarkably docile, obedient,
lovely disposition and character.
"We always thought that his will was partially
sulMlucd at the early age of seven weeks old."
'Oh grandmother!" exclaimed Charley, "did you
whip such a young baby?"
"No, my son, there are other ways of making
children mind, than always having recourse to the
rod. I will tell yon under what circumstances we
accomplished this objyet. We had from the first
earnestly besonght the Lord to give ns wisdom to
train this door object of our affection in tho way
he should go, especially as he was our eldest, so that
when lie was old he would walk therein. And we
have ever had occasion to know that God does not
answer the cries of His children unless they strive
to obtain the victory over every opposiiig obstacle
within tlremsslves, ns well as without.
"I will therefore tell you. without descending to
every particular, that 1 had a very severe fit or ill
ness when your father was but a few days old, and
from some peculiar circumstances we kept quite :i
bright light burning cuch night, without ever sup
posing that any evil might, by this means, come'to
"When he was just seven weeks old, I was so far
restored to my customary health, that your grand
pa, on coming to lcd that memorable night, put
out the candle.
'The infant, not accustomed to total darkness,
began first to worry and then to fidget, but finding
tins did not iinng the light, he set up a loud cry,
as if he were in an agony of pain.
"Your grandfather sprung for a light, and at my
suggestion he begun to rake open the embers, iu or
der to warm some catnip tea. a, beverage too of
ten given to infants in those days, supposing he
had a pinching eholie.
"But to our surprise, the little fellow began to
coo, and to talk iu his own baby language, as if to
thank his father for restoring the prettycandle.
"His father inquired with surprise, "'Can it be
that this young child was crying for a light!'
"I said, 'It looks like it.'
"He said. 'I will experiment;' and he immediate
ly put out the light and came back to bed.
"This same scene was gone over three times that
night, lleing satisfied that it was the light that
was desired, and this ado was not the effect of pain,
your grandfather said, 'Well, well, my little man,
you need not think to overcome your father thus
at such an early age; and taking him in his arms,
he grasped him and held him tight.
"The child screamed as if he would go into fits.
Seeing it struggle so, I cried out in no less terror,
'Give me my baby! give me my baby! You will
kill my baby!'
"Your grandfather was my senior by several
years, and had greatly the advantage of me in such
matters, as he had for several years been engaged
in teaching before he entered college, and for one
so young, was considered a remarkable disciplina
rian. He said to me laughingly, but very sooth
ingly: 'My dear wife, it happens to be my bady as
well as yours. Believe me, I will not hurt it; Twill
so place my hands 113 to guard it. But you must
consent to havp nie snbdtte its will.'
"Thongh I trembled from head to foot, I did, by
the grace of God, remain perfectly quiet.
"This painful experiment was tried for three
nights in succession, and was perfectly satisfactory.
The little fellow never after made any resistance
when he was put to bed nnd left alone in the dark.
"The other instance was by far more paiuful.
When nt the age of between three and four, we
were again .-.d!ed upon to snlidnchis will. In fact,
this required all the faith and patience and forti
tude and self-denial that we could possibly summon
to our aid.
"Previous to this age, your father had been very
remarkable for his docility and obedience on all
' had, up to this time, always spoken to him in
a mild and Jiersuasive tone of voice, never having
had occasion to speak authoritatively.
"I do not remember how it was, but I told him
quite sternly to go and pick up mother's handker
chief. Bnt, as is ofted the case, eombntivenes be
gets combativeness. So it proved at this time- He
refused to pick up tlte handkerchief.
'f told him, over and over, to pick it tip, but he
refused and refused, till at length his temper ap
peared exceedingly irascible, and he said, over and
over again. ! won't, 1 won't.'
"f corrected him quite severely, but this only
made htm more angry and determined not t obey.
Just nt this juncture, to my great relief, your
grandpa entered. 1 was in a high state of excite
ment, was full of perspiratiou. and began to fuel
'He took tlie child out of my nrms, supposing
that he could instantly snbdtie him.
"But what was our consternation and grief, wlicu.
after a full hour tif controversy, having inflicted
stroke after stroke, such as was adapted to snbdnu
and intimidate a young child, he not only refused
to pick up the handkerchief, but he exclaimed with
a relmllious voice. 'Whip me, whip me! beat me.
beat me! Tie ine np! put me down iu the cellar!
kill me, kill me! 1 won't, I won't pick up the -and-kerchief.'
"Thus he went on, till at length he began to
show signs of drowsiness.
"I said to your grandfather, 'My dear huslnind,
our tender mercies should not !. cruelty. God
knows that we intend to subline our child, and He
will give us another opportunity.
"As he surrendered this precious burden to my
arms, I felt assnrod that hit heart had never liefore
been so broken on account of sin. Your grand
father's brother, who was very fond of the child,
and had. in an agony of grief, paced the floor this
hour, which seemed to us an age, Iieseeehing God
to take awnv the Iieurt of stone and give a heart
"As I undrese''d the child, and saw the marks of
the rod still visible iu the tlesh. I rememlicrvd with
gratitude the language of Scripture, and it was
balm to my soul. 'Like as a father pitieth his
children, so the Lord pitieth them that fear him.'
I washed his strijies with a little camphor and wa
ter, feeling as I had never done before, thoA-xceed-ing
depravity of the human heart; for, sure I was
that this child had never liecn taught this, by evil
examples. He had never for once witnessed any
contest between his father and myself, or, to niy
knowledge, had he witnessed any thing quarrelsome
on the parC of other children. .
"I dreaded all the night to have the morning light
appear, lest we should witness a recurrence of the
last night's painful seen-- -My prayers, mingled
with bitter tears of repentance, ascended to a covenant-keeping
God during the greater part or the
"I11 the morning T went to his bed as usual, to
take him to my room that I might wash and dress
him. I Te was already awake, and he eagerly sprang
to my neck, and clusping me with his little cling
ing Teet, he loaded m with kisses.
"I took him to my room, nnd had just finished
washing and dressing him, when his fathered enter
ed. 1 rose, and the dear child reached out liis lit
tle arms to embrace his father; and on iis coming
closer by my side, he clasped ench of ns round the
neck, kissed fint one and then the other, and then
he wanted we should kiss each other.
"Tear, of gratitud. streamed down onr faces
then, as the? did many times afterward, as we re
curred to thi3 pathetic scene.
"Never from that time to the day of Lis death, aft
theagaof thirty-eight, did this tLling son ever
exprcaf the shadow of a desire to do any thin dif
ferent from the known wishes of hb parents."
As Charley's grandmother finished this interest
ing relation, Charley straggled to conceal his emo-
nun uy saying: "urandmother, I should like at a

dear father." "
This would certainly form a suitable chapter for

Escape from' Death.
Almost every person can recollect narrow escapes
from death, or severe bodily injuries, in one form
or another; and probably our cscajies from umeen
dangers are more than those we have seen.
At a meeting of ministers, on. of the fathers
spoke with deep emotion of a narrow escape on his
way. "Just as I come to tho top of a long and
steep hill," said he, "which I had often descended
without any fear or accident, tlte hold-back of She
liarness broke, which brought tho carriage down
upon tlie horse, and frightened him so that he start
ed to run with fall speed, and I expected nothing
but to be dashed to pieces. But it was so ordered
that I kept him in the road, and cheeked him be
fore coming to another hill, withont being thrown
ouPoV upset; nnd here I am, in the midst of you.
without having experienced any harm." He was
listened to with affectionate interest. Every one
felt that it wa a narrow, providential escape, and
all were ready to unite with him in thanksgivings
to God for tho deliverance.
But what was their surprise, when another of
their body rose and remarked, that it certainly wai
a striking exampte of divine protection, which
should be devoutly acknowledged in prayer; but he
had ono to mention, which he thought had still
higher claims to their gratitude. Everyone eager
ly listened. What could it be? "I came," said he,
"on the same road as my brother, and when I got
to the top of the same hill, I began to descend, and
my harness did not break, and my horse did not run,
and I felt no alarm, ami came ou all the way in
perfect safety, and withont a moment's fear. And
now, brethren. I appeal to you, which of ns has the
most reason to be thankful for divine protection,
our highly esteemed father ami brother who so nar
rowly escaped, or myself who saw and felt no dan
ger! We are both here, we are all hero to-day,
alike iiviug and well. He alone has suffered any
alarm; and while he may well feel that it becomes
him to call upon his soul and all that is withim him
to bless God for his sparing mercies, hove not we
additional reasons forthanksgiving!"'
While God's hand forces itself visibly, as it were,
upon our attention, in all wtr deliverances from im
minent danger, how apt we are to rorgct that there
are a thousand dangers nuseen as well as seen, and
tliat without divine protection we could not be safe
a moment, at home or abroad, goimr. out or coming
in. Jf when some great danger has been escaped,
we are bound fervently to acknowledge that pro
vidence which watched over and delivered ns, how
much more do we owe to onr divine Protector, for
his hourly, daily, weekly, and monthly care over
us, by day and by night, when no ambush springs
up in our path, and no plague comes nigh ourdret
liugs. These thoughts might be illustrated by a thou
sand examples. Two friends are crossing the sett
in a storm one of them falls overboard, and barey
escapes with his life. It is a mereiful deliverance.
But which of the two has experienced the greater
favor, the man who was drawn into the boat half
dead, or his friend who remained safe upon deck?
A ship, coming upon our coast in a dark and stormy
night, is wrecked; the crew, after suffering incredi
bly from cold and banger, at last ftnd food nnd shel
ter. The next morning, another ship that sailed
iu company enters the harbor with a fine breeze,
and the passengers all land in high spirits to meet
their friends. Who have the most occasion for
thanksgiving when they get ashore, the shipwreck
ed company, or the other?
Yesterday hc cars with a hundred passengers
were thrown off the track, and though taany were
injured, no lives were lost. It was a narrow and
providential escape. They have certainly great
reason to be thankful; bti't how niaeh more the
hundred who have passed over the same road to-dsy
without the slightest accident. A fire breaks out
in a dwelling-honse at midnight. The family are
barely rescued from the devouring element, and
some of them, badly sorched; but praised be God,
they are all saved. On either side are large fami
lies, qnite nut of the reach of the fire, and scarcely
awaked bv the alarm. Whieh hare the most rea
son to be thankful, the fumily that has lost every
thing, but has been almost iniraculoasly snatched
fronfa dreadful death, or those who have lost noth
in- and suffered nothing? An alarming and mortal
Bsickness comes into a neighWhood. Every mem-
lcr, perhaps, of one family taKen uown anu
brought near to death: bnt the great Physician in
terposes, and they all slowly recover. What a
theme for tbauksgiving, morning and evening, iu
that house. WoTshoutd think it strange, and most
ungrateful indeed, if they did ttot look upon it and
speak of it as a great temporal salvation. The dis
ease does not enter the house of the next neighbor
at all. AVhich of these families U laid under tho
highest obligations of gratitude to tho Giver and
Prcwrver of life? Is it not the latter? And yet,
who takes this view of tlie snhjrct? Who does not
feel tlutt the preservation of life and limbs, under
circumstances of great manifest exposure, calls for
more thankfulness than duvs and weeks of health
Let us seriously ponder the subject. Is it not a
g5iter mercy to be kept nut of danger, to receive
no wound or'hnirbrendth escapes, titan to lie snatch
ed from tlie jaws of itaath when mt ready to be
swallowed up, great as such a deliverance is! li
so, how fur do we, wlien every thing goes well with
us, full short in tlmnksgivings" for daily and honr.ly
No Sabbath anil the Working; Classes.
In a "Prbsc Essay on the Salibath," written by a
journeyman printer of Scotland which for singu
lar power of language ami beauty of expression
has never lieen snrpasoed there ctecujf the follow
ing passage. Bead it. and then X!fleetfr-r awhie:
wivnt a dreary and dawitate page- would this life
present if the" Sabbath wnre blotted ont from onr
'Yokefellow! tliink how the attraction of the
Sabbath would hopelesdy enclave tlte working class
es, with whom we are itlentiSesl- Think 'A labor
thus going on in one monotonous and continnons
and eternal cvclc Iimi forever on the rack, the
fingers forever ldjing, the eye-balU forever strain
the brow forever sweating, the feet forever
iiloddinvtk brain forever throbbing, theshonlders
forever 'drooping, ihe loins forever aehing, and the
restless mind forever scheming.
"Think of the beanty it would efface; of the mer-ry-lieurtfdness
it woukl extinguish; of the giant
stren"tl that ii would tame; of the resources of
nature that it would exhaust: of the aspirations
that it would crash; of the sicknesses that it wouM
breed; f the projects it wonhl wreck; of the groans
that it woukl extert: of the lives that it would im
molate; and of the cheerless graves that it would
prematurely dig! See them, toiling and moiling,
sweating and fretting, grinding and hewing, weav
ing and spinning, strewing and gathering, sowing
and reaping, razing and building, digging and plant
ing, unloading and storing, striving and struggling
in the garden and in tlte field, in the granary and
in the barn, in the factory and in the mill, in tha
ware-house and in the shop, on the mountain and
iu the ditch, on the roadside and mtlw wood, in tho
city and in tlie country, ontheseaand ontheshore
