Tennessee, and the stack is the largest in the Siale, being
47 feet high. Th- furnace, except the stock, is now being
rebuilt, and will be read r to put in blast bribe 1st of IV
rcmbcr. The route of the .North Western liailrood, as sur
J eyed, passes immedaitcly by the Furnace. The ore is un
te surpassed, andtbctbnber'and gronnu admirably adapted
. AIso USleriew Furnace, and about 8SO0 .acres of land,

Take Pnrtictilnr Notice. There is a habit which
Imvs teach each other at the academy or college a habit in
dulged in when by tbemsclves,in solitude, growingup irith
the boy to manhood, and which, if not abandoned in due
time, not only begets serious obstacles to matrimonial hap
piucsg, but gives rise to a series of protracted, insidious and
devastating affections. Few of those who indulge in this
pernicious practice are aware of the consequences, until they
timl the ncrrou3 system is shattered, feel strange and unac
countable feelings, rague fears in the mind. The individual
becomes feeble, he is unable to labor with accustomed rig
or, or to apply bis mind to study: hissiepisiardyandweak,

eves without natural lustre, shainefaceduess is apjiarent

If the rictim be conscious of the cause of his decay, and
liaiing relinquished the odious practice, he suffers "under
those terrible nocturnal emissions, which weaken and sham
him, producing mental and physical prostration. If lie
emancipate htinselt before the practice has done its worst,
and enter matrimony, his marriage is unfruitful, and his
seni-es tell him that this is caused by his early follies.
Too many think ther will hug the secret to their own
hearts, and cure themselves. Alas! how often is this a fatal
delusion, and how man) a promising youth, who might liare
been an ornsinent to society, has faded from the earth!
Young Illoii! Let no false modesty deter you from
making our cast, known to ouc who, from education and re
spectability, can alone befriend ou. He who places himself

Going Down Hill.
"That looks bad," exclaimed farmer "CVhitc, with
an expressive shake of his head, rut he passed a neg

"Bad enough," was the reply of the companion
to whom the remark waa addressed.
"Neighbor Thompson appears to be running
down lull pretty fast. I can remember when every
thing around his little, place .wad trim and .tidy.'
"He always appeared to be a'steadyynidustriQUs
man," rejoined the second speaker, "I have a pair
of boots on my feet at thii moment of his make,
and they have done me good service."
"I have generally employed him for myself and
family," was the reply 'and I must Confess that he
is a good workman 7 but, nevertheless, I believe I
shall step into Jack Smith's this morning, and or
der a pair of boots, of which I stand in need. I
always make it a rule never to patronize those who
appear to be running behind hand, there is gen
erally some risk in helping those won't help them

about a pair of shoes for her this morninc I will
follow your example and call upon Smith. He

"And yet he seems to be getting along in the
world," answered the farmer, "and I am willing to
give him a lift. But I have an errand at the butch
er's. I will not detain vou,"
At the butcher's they met the neighbor who was
the subject of their previous conversation. He
certainly presented rather a shabby appcarancet
and in his choice of meat there was a regard to
economy which did not escape the observation of
farmer AVhite. After passing remarks, the poor
shoemaker took his departure, and the butcher
opened his account book with a somewhat anxious
air, saying, as he charged the bit of meat
"I believe it is time neighbor Thompson and I
come to altk-ment. Short accounts make long
"Xo time to lo30, 1 should say," remarked the
"Indeed! have you heard of any trouble, neigh
"Xo; I have heard nothing; but a man has the
use of his own eyes, you know; and I never trust
any one with my money who is evidently going
"Quito right ; and I will send in my bill this eve
ning. I have only delayed on account of the sick
ness the poor man has had in his family all winter.
I suppose he must have run behind a little, but still
I must take care of number one."
"Speaking of Thompson, are you?" observed a
bystander, who appeared to take an interest in the
conversation. "Going down hill is he? I must
look out for myself, then. He owes me quite a snug
sum for leather. I did intend to give him another
month's credit, but on the whole I guess the money
would be safer in my- own pocliet."
Here the four worthies seperated, each with hi3
mind filled with the affairs of neighbor Thompson,
the probability that .he was going down hill, and
the best way of giving him a push.
In another part of the little village similar scenes
"I declare," exclaimed Mrs. Bennett, the. dress
maker, to a favorite assistant, as she. hastily with
drew her head from the window, whence she had
been gazing on tho passers-hy ; "if there is not Mrs.
Thompson, the shoemaker's wife, coming up the
steps with a parcel in her hand. She wants me to
do her work, I suppose, but I think it would be a
venture. Every one says they are running down
hill, and it is a chance if I ever get my pay."-
"She always has paid us promptly," was the re
ply. "True ; but that was in the days of her prosper
ity. I cannot afford to run any risk."
The cntracc of Mrs. Thompson prevented furth
She was evidently surprised at the refusal of
Mrs. Bennett to do any 'work for her; but as great
pressure of business was pleaded as an excuse, there
was nothing to be said, and she soon took her
leave. Another application proved equally unsuc
cessful. It was strange how busy the village dress
makers had suddenly become.
On the way home, the poor shoemaker's wife met
the teacher of a small school in the neighborhood,
where two of her children attended.
"Ah, Mrs. Thompson, I am glad to see you,"
was the salutation. "I was about calling at your
house. "Would it be convenient to settle our little
account this afternoon ?"
"Our account !" was the surprised reply. "Sure
ly the term has'not yet expired 1"
"Only half of it; but my present rule is to col
lect my money at that time. It is a plan which
many teachers have adopted of late."
"I was not aware that there had been any change
in yonr rules, and I have made arrangements to
meet your bill at the usual time. I fear that it
will not be in my power to do so sooner."
The countenance of the teacher showed great
disappointment, and she passed on in a different di
rection, he muttered to himself
".Tint us T ernected. I shall never see a cent,-1
Everybody says they are going down hill. I must
et rid of the children in some way. Perhaps I
maygct a pair of shoes or two for payment for tha
half quarter, if I manage right; but it will never
do to go on in this Tftiy."

teacher, Mrs. Thompson stepped int&'a neighboring.

ITer.pcrplexity was increased by finding her hus
band with two bills in his hand and a countenance
expressive, of anxiety and concern.
"Look, Afary," he said, as she entered, "ITcraare
two unexpected calls for money;, one from the doc
tor, and the other from tho dealer in leather from
whom I purchased my last stock. They arc both
very urgent for immediate payment although they
have always beea willing to wait a few months un
til I could make arrangements to meet their claim".
But misfortunes never come single, and if a man

Reply wai prevented by a knock at tue door, and
the appearance of a lad, who presented a neatly
folded paper, and dissappcared.
"The butcher's account, as I livo.!" exclaimed
the astonished shoemaker "What, is to b done,

ployment a3 usual, and the usual credit allowed
me, I could soon satisfy all thcsc claims ; but, to
meet them nOw is impossible, and the acknowledg
ment of my inability would send us still further
on the downward path."
"We must do our best and trust in Providence,"
was the consoling remark- of his wife, as a second
knock at the door aroused the fear that another
claimant was about to appear.
But the benevolent countenance of Uncle Joshua,

hastened to hand him, he said, in his eccentric, but
Well, good folks, I' understand the world "does

"There need be no trouble," was the reply, "if
men would not try f o add to the afflictions which
the Almighty sees to be necessary for ns. The

"But there lies the difficulty, friend Thompson.
This is a selfish world. Everybody, cr at least, a
great majority, care only for number one. If they
see a poor neighbor going down hill, their first
thought is whether it will affect their own interests,
and provided they can secure themselves, they care
not how soon he goes to the bottom. The only
way is to keep up appearances. Show no signs of
going behindhand, and all will 20 well with von."
"Very true, Uncle Joshua, but how is this to be
done? Bills which I did not expect to be called up
on to meet for the next three months are pouring
in upon me. My best customers are leaving me for
a more fortunate rival. In short, I am on the brink
of ruin, and nought but a miracle can save me."
"A miracle which is very easily wrought then, I
imagine my good friend. "What is the amount of
your debts which press so Tieavilyupou you, and
how soon in the common course of events, could
you discharge them."
They do not exceed one hundred dollars," repli
ed the shoemaker: "and with myusual run of work,
T could make all right in three or four months."
"We will say six," was the answer. "I will ad
vance you one hundred and fifty dollars for six
months. Pay every cent you owe, and with the re
mainder of the money make some slight addition or
improvement in your shop or house, and put every
thing about the grounds in its usual neat order.
Try this plan for a few weeks,and we will see what
effect it has upon our worthy neighbors. Xo, no,

Weeks passed by. The advice of Uncle Joshua
had liccn strictly followed, and the change in the
shoemaker's prospects was indeed wonderful. He
was now spoken of as one of the most thriving men
in the village, and many marvellous stories were
told to account for the sudden alteration in his- af
fairs. It was generally agreed that a distant relative
had bequeathed to him a legacy, which hail entirely
relieved him of his pecuniary difficulties. They
had never before realized the beauty and durability
of his work. The polite butcher selected the best
pieces of meat for lilt inspection, cs he entered, and
was totally indifferent a3 to the time of payment.
The teacher accompanied the children home to tea,
and spoke in high terms of their improvement, pro
nouncing them among her best scholars. The dress
maker suddenly found herself free from the great
press for work, and in a friendly note expressed
her desire to oblige Mrs. Thompson in any way in
"Jtt3t as I expected,'' exclaimed Uncle Joshua,
rubbing his hands jcxultingly, as the grateful shoe
maker called upon him at the expiration of six
months, with the money which had been loaned in
the hour of need. "Just as I expected. A strange
worldl They arc ready to pu3h a man up hill if he
seems to be ascending, and jrtst as ready to pu3h

way In future, neighbor Thompson, let everything
around you wear an air of prosperity, and you will

more. They have numerous classes over the whole
