Miscellaneous Selections. j;
Purity ok Character. Over the beau- I '
ty of the plum and apricot, there grows a '
bloom and beauty more exquisite than the j'
fruit itself a soft delicate flush that over- :
spreads its blushing cheek. Kow if you I;
stricke your hands over that, and it is once t:
gone, it is gone forever, for it never grows j
but once. The flower that hangs in the I1
morning, impearled with dew arrayed as j;
no queenly woman ever was arrayed with '
jewels once shake it, so that the beads roll j-:
ofl; and you may sprinkle water over it as j i
you please, yet it can never be made again j
what it was when the dew fell silently upon i
it from heaven ! On a frosty morning you I
may see the panes of glass eovered with
landscapes, mountains, lakes and trees, j,
blended in a beautiful fantastic picture.
Now lay your hand on the glass, and by the
scratch of your linger, or by the warmth
of the . palm, all the delicate tracery will be
obliterated. So there is in youth a beauty
and purity of diameter, which, when once
touched and defiled, can .never be restor
ed ; a fringe more delicate than frostwork,
and which, when torn and broken, will never
be re-embroidereil. A man who has spotted
and soiled his garments in youth, though
he may seek to make them white again, can
never wholly do it, even were he to wash
them with his tears. When a young man
leaves his father's house, with the blessing of
his mother s tears still wet upon his forehead, j
if he once loses that early purity of charac
ter, it is a loss that he can never make whole !
again. Such is the consequence of crime. )
Its effects can not be eradicated; it can only
be forgiven. Henry Word Beecher.
A Sad Story From the South. The
Monroe (La.) Telegraph of a recent date has j
the following: i
"A couple of gentlemen Jiving on Bceul ;
river were out hunting hogs, when becoming ;
tired they dismounted, and hitching their j
horses, lay down to sleep near an old tree on i
fire. Sight days after this, a neighbor was ;
hunting in the vicinity, when attracted by the j
barking of his dog, which would come to no j
calls, he went to the spot where the men lay j
down, and found that the tree had fallen '
across the head of one and across the chest of !
the other. j
''One of the horses had broken loose, the j
other was still standing where, eight days ;
before, he had been tied. One of the gen- j
tlemen, a Mr. Day, leaves a wife and six chil- !
dren in distressed circumstances. The wife's .
historv has been a sad one. The conscript I
authority, always too loose or too rigid, drag- '
her first husband from home, and sent '
him to Shreveport in acar.
" His wife followed just in time to see him
conscripted bv death. She returned home,
, . x , I 1111 i
aiul m about a week had her house, and
everything she possessed, but a wheel, a sad
! die. and a pair of cards, burned up. After
frcqUcnt importunities, she married Mr. Dav, i
who was a widower with three children, j
which, added to her own. made six. This 1
; helpless charge is now left upon her hands.''
Steam Excuse ox a Spkkk. Yesterday
morning, between 9 and 10 o'clock, the re
gula tor connected with the engine in the
sawing and turning establishment of A. C.
Green, Xo. 18 Church street, liecame dis-
! connected and bereft of its restraining power, ,
; the engine entered upon a series ot antics ;
: of a most extraordinary character, its speed j
! rapidly increasing until it had readied the ;
I fearful rate of from 800 to a 1000 revolutions J
' a minute. i
f The engine, an iron structure, weight a i
. ton. commenced dancing a hornpipe about !
the floor; while the shaftings in various parts ;
of the building danced an acconpaniment,
! being driven by mere contrifugal force from !
: its fastenings, bent ui) us one would bend :
a small wire, and hurled about the establish
ment and upon the floor, The shafting in
the room above was also hurled from its
place and a pully burst, while the building
swayed to and fro as if rocked an earth
quake. The made pranks of the engine were finally
brought to a close by the steam supply pipe
becoming disconnected and thus, as it were,
cutting off its breath, else it is difficult to
conjecture what might have been the resule.
Providentially there -was no one in thhe room
at the time of the accident, or we might have
had, in addition, a loss of life to chronicle.
The extent of the damage was bent and dis
placed shafting, five broken pulleys, and
othertrifling disarrangements of machinery.
How to Live ix New York City. The
New York World contains the following
sensible advice to an economical man of
moderate means, who is visiting 2'ew York
for a brief stay :
His first care, as soon as he ranches New
York, should be to secure a roo.ii at a re
spectable, cleanly, but not "first class"' hotel.
For a dollar a night he might obtain a decent
room at either of the following : French's
Lovejoy's, the Girard House, Earie's. There
are perhaps some others, but these are the
most important. If he be staying in the city
for a week, lie might get ft good room at
some of the restaurants at five dollars per
week. He should board not at the hotels, but
at restaurants. There are ii great number
of these establishments ia every quarter of
New York, conducted in the best possible
stj-lc. He may enter one of these, take his scat
at a table, and select what pleases him best on
the bill of fare. Ie may get beefsteak, pork
steak, cutlets, fec, (la rather diminutive
portions, it must be confessed,) for fifteen
cents. Buckwheat cakes, ten cents; and tea
and coffee, chocolate, ten cents a cup. He
can thus obtain a very respectable breakfast
or supper for thirty cents. At dinner he
might have a good plate of meat for twenty
cents, soup for ten cents, some pie for ten
cents, cider for five, and ale ten cents. If
we reckon fifty cents for dinner, and sixty
for breakfast and tea, whieh is about a fair
computation, his board would cost him
about a dollar and a quarter a day. At
some of the second-class hotels, the Girard"
House and Lovejoy's for instance, he may
also get some refreshments, but at slightly
James Littleworth, of Plympton, Pa., now
87 years old, is the father of 31 children, the
oldest of whom is 50 years and the youngest
four months. He is living with his fourth
wife, when he married at the age of 59, she
being then a little Indian squaw of 14. By
her he has had 13 children.' Littleworth is a
; native of England and has been an English
soiuier in uenmark, .Portugal, pam ana
Canada. For 40 years he used liquor to ex
cess, but has since been a teetotaler.
The examination bv the Fire Marshal of
New York, reveals the fact that large quan-
tides of nitro-glycerine are stored in that j
citv. and the subject is to be brought to the
attention of the Mayor at once. !
