It may seem strange, but it is neverthe
less true, that alcohol, regularly applied
to a thrifty fanner's stomach, will remove
the boards from the fence, let cattle into
his crops, kill his fruit trees, mortgage his
farm, and sow his fields with wild oats
and thistles. It will take the paint ofl his
building, break the glass out of the win
dows, and till them with rags. It will
take the gloss from his clothes and polish
from his manners, subdue his reason,
arouse his passion, bring sorrow and dis
grace upon his family, and topple him into
a drunkard's grave. It will do this to the
artisan and the capitalist, the matron and

tarian. Where does all the opium go to? Are
we tx-coiuing a nation of opium-eaters? '
The increase of its use in this country is
truly alarming. The importation of opium
now amounts to nearly 2.0,(MI0 pounds
annually, ten times more than thirty years
ago; audit is the opinion of physicians
and druggists that not more than one
third of the quantity is used for medicinal
purposes. In other words, more than
PKI.000 pounds of this drug are now used
for stimulating purposes in this country.
If the reformers could get rid of the
opium, it is a question whether some other
stimulant would not be found to supply
its place. The influence of this drug on
the human system is fearful to contem
plate. A coon example of muscular Christian
ity is recorded of Father Lynch, an Irish
priest, formerly attached to the lloman
Catiiolic College below Niagara Falls, and
who was afterward ISishop of Toronto,
llcturning home one dark night on horse
back. Father Lynch was accosted by a
footpad with a bludgeon, who ordered him
to dismount and surrender his horse and
purse. The reverend father did as he was
ordered, and in so doing sprang on his as
sailant and laid him Hat on his hack. "Are

Catholic?" "Sure that 1 am." "Well, 1
am Father Lynch, and shall take your
punishment out of the hands of the law,"

Sam Wileoxen, of the Eagle Brewery,
lias a small menagerie of monkeys, badg
ers, foxes, coyotes, and the like. He also
has a large Newfoundland dog, on whose
back he sometimes places one of his pet
monkeys when he is going for a walk
iiliout town, the monkey Listened to the
collar of the dog bv a string. Asa gener
al tiling the monkey enjoys his ride, but
we saw him a day or two since when he
would willingly have traded himself ofl
for some less privileged sitccimcn ol his
siHVies. His canine steed, being allowed
to roam through the streets at will, saw an
other dog that he thought he could whip,
and forthwith went for him like a hairy
hurricane. In a moment both dogs were
on their hind lesrs and going lor each other
like two sauage machines. This made
times lively for the monkey, as the stran
ger dog evidently considered hiiu part and
parcel of his antagonist. Such wails of
despair a that monkey uttered, anil such
hideous faces as he made we never heard
or saw. He would climb down the side
of the dog he Ix-strode opposite to where
the war was going on, and thence peep
over occasionally, his jaw quivering, vis
age di.-torn-d, and his eyes starting from
their sockets with terror. As the dogs
were constantly changing sides, it made
times awfully lively with the monkey.
When hejun"iH'd to the ground the string
held him.'aud he found himself trampled
under the feet of loth friend and toe, and
he wa glad to get again upon the back of
his steed and lace the battle. The poor
monkey was in a worse lix than the boy
who stood on the burning deck, and had
not the dogs leen separated he must soon
have lecn rendered a lit subject for the

Cloud-Bursts and Water-Spouts.
"ih fw-tlil TTill AVtra ill akes the followinsr
very correct distinction lietween these two
classes of phenomena : juany oi our con
temporaries seem to Ikj under the impres
sion that cloud-bursts and water-souts
are one and the same thing. Our own ob
servation and experience of them during
several years' residence in this State, as
well as comparing notes in the experience
of others, induces the belief that, although
the phenomenal effects of each are very
similar, yet there is a decided difference in
their source and formation. Water-spouts
are met with ou the ocean or on broad sur
faces of water, whose huge moving
columns of water are whirled up from the
eca to the clouds, and whenever this
. t 1
column of water breaks, whether on land
or upon some unfortunate ship, It descends
in a body oven helming all beneath it.
A cloud-burst Is simply most extraordi
nary shower or pouring down of rain an
overladen cloud suddenly letting go its
contents by the run. The heavy, porten
tous cloud mav pass along over the eaith,
showering down its watery contents gen
erously as it goes along, and were it to
meet no obstacle or changing circum
stance, nothing unusual might come of it.
At or about the heads of gulches orcanons
among the mountain tope is where the
cloud-burst occurs. The cause may be
looked for in sudden electrical disturb
ances, the electricity of the earth and the
cloud coming into contact or conjunction,
or perhaps a huge current of cold air met
wi'n at that oint may produce the result.
ISo that as it may. the observer will simply
notice a sudden and furiously copious
shower or pouring down of rain, and no
definite body or column of water as in the
case of a water-spout. The steep hillsides
will be directly covered with flowing
sheets of water rushing from all directions
into the bed of the ravine, forming a great
flood which sweeps along logs, brush,
rocks, and every loose thing it can gather
in its course, and thus driving along a huge
front wall, as it were, of all sorts of debris
seething with angrily foaming water,
sweeping everything movable before it,
and spreading i uin and devastation in its
course. The flood-gates of the upper re
gions secin to open and the rain descends
more in actual streams than drops. The
watery composition of the cloud seems to
condense all at once, and the name of
"cloud-burst" is peculiarly applicable.

Model lor If onuewivn.
Looking out of the window the other
morning I saw a woman drive to the gate,
with a trim little establishment in excel
lent order. I had never set eyes upon her
before, 1 was sure of tliat, though she
looked up at the window with a bright
and cheery smile as though she had
known me all my days. Springing out of
the high wagon like a girl ot sixteen,
though she was evidently three times that
age, she hitched her horse and blanketed
it as if she was used to it, and was ushered
into the parlor. She had come to inquire
about some lots upon our farm, and I as
sure you she talked business, it evidently
iH'ing no new thing to her. I found she
was from a neighboring town, five miles
distant, where her husband is a prosperous
architect and builder. After she had ob
tained the information for which she came,
we fell into conversation such as our sex
will indulge in.
"Have you much of a family?" I in
quired. "Eleven children," she replied.
1 opened my eyes in astonishment, expect
ing to hear the usual answer in these days,
"Three, two boys and a girl," or vice
versa. " Have you never lost any chil
dren?" said 1. "None," she replied,
" and none are married, they are all living
at home." "What a family to look after!"
I exclaimed. " O. I shouldn't mind our
own family at all," she said, " but we
have always boarded three or four carpen
ters, necessary in my husband's business.
Then we have a farm, and a good many
cows to see to and butter to make, and as
my husband is always busy in other ways,
the oversight of the farm devolves mostly
" I hope you are more fortunate than the
rest of us, in having good domestics to
help you with all this work," I said. The
good woman straightened herself up and
gave a decisive reply. "I never keep
anv," she said; "they never suit me."
" Your children must help you a good
deal, then ? " " Yes ; but they have their
lessons to learn. Their eldest" sister, who
has as good an education as money could
give Tier, teaches them entirely at
home. We have, a room in our
house fitted up especially for this purpose.
They are more thoroughly taught by her,
with the deep interest sh feels in them,
than if they went to school elsewhere; and
being able to recite their lessons in the
early part of the day, they spend fewer
hours overbooks, which is better for their
health, and this enables them to give me
more assistance than they otherwise could
do." What a sensible woman, thought I,
for you know what a favorite idea home
education is to me, when it is at all practica
ble. So I drew my chair up nearer to her
and said, " You don't do your own sew
ing, do you?" " Never sent out a stitch in
my lilts dresses or anything else, even
when we had not a sewing-machine, and 1
don't know what excuse I could have for
it now, with a good machine." " Do you
make your husband's and all your boys'
shirts?" I asked. " Every one of them.
My eldest son is something of a dandy, as
voung men will be, and he bought some
shirts a while ago. Oh ! such a lit as they
were ! I spent more time ripping and fix

" Do you ever have time to go outside
your house?" I inquired.
" Oh, yes," she replied with a smile : '"I
am here this morning, you see, to inquire
about the land, and day before yesterday I
went to the State Fair with some butter,
which took a premium."
" You must sit up very late nights," I
"Oh, no, not very; we always finish up
our work by eight o'clock evenings, unless
something very special I?. goin? on, for we
are quite a musical family, we have a
piano. My daughters are good players,
and father and mother, boys and girls, all
count upon a good sing, often before going
to bed. and this cause us to sit up rath

ahvavs well?" I asked. "My health is
pcrfeet. I have a good natural constitu
tion, and have no time to be debilitated
and nervous." Here this paragon arose
to go. I followed her to the gate, saw her
unhitch her horse and drive oil, while I re
turned to the house with these reflections :
Eleven children, boarders, a farm, no ser
vants, no sewing put out, all teaching
done in the house, premium for butter at

Of course I hate it. Of course it will tire
me to death, but it is so nice to be smart
like this good woman. I have made some
inquiries about her since she was here, and
lind her story was not exaggerated. She
is a living example of what perfect sy

was once a teacher, well educated and sen

was not considered a gentleman, and

through him. General White heard of it
and made some remarks about Houston,
which led to a duel between Houston and
White, iu which White was seriously
" This added to the popularity of Hous
ton, and he was elected Governor of the
State in 1827. He had succeeded Governor
Carroll, who was a very popular man, and
who was spoken of prominently as a can
didate for re-election. Houston was afraid
of him, and in order to secure his own re
election to Congress in case Carroll beat
him for Governor, begau to strengthen
himsell politically, and in order to carry
out his scheme married, in January, 182U,
a lady belonging to a very influential fam
ily at Gallatin, thirty miles north of Nash
ville. She was a very handsome, brilliant
young lady, and attracted great attention
wherever she went, which exasperated
Houston, who was of a morose, jealous
disposition. I used to see linn frequently,
and knew that he had married purely
through political reasons, and soon saw
that his domestic lite was an unhappy one,
" One Saturday in April, I met him at a
big barbecue, just west of the city, where
he and Carroll both made sjieeches. I saw
that the feeling of that crowd was all in
his favor, and told him 60, which caused
fnm to be in the very best ol spirits, anil
while in that mood we separated. Monday
morning I called at the Nashville Inn,
where he and his wife had been boarding
since their marriage, but I was refused ad

and was admitted by Dr. Nielby. 1 iouini

that she had left her husband and returned
to the home of her childhood.
" Said I, 4 General, what's this I hear?'
" Said he, ' I'm a ruined man ; I'm a
ruined man !"
" I told him he owed it to his friends to
give some explanation for his conduct, and
asked him whv he and his wife had separa

word to say against his wife that she was
a high-minded, virtuous lady.

with him. While in Nashville he went

How Carl Rosa Got Married.
Carl Rosa and Parepa, antipodal as they
were in complexion, stature and avoirdu
pois, were supremely harmonious, excel
lently adapted to associated enterprise.
He had never undertaken a management
Hntil after his marriage, and he is indebted
to her, it is said, for the inspiration. He
is so modest and retiring a little fellow
that many persons have wondered how he
could summon courage to propose to a
woman so much larger than himself.
The manner of lus proposal is thus re
lated. The musical twain were en route
to Hartford by rail seated side by side ;
Rosa seeming to be unusally depressed.
I'arepa, a close obverver, and always sym
pathetic, noticing his melancholy, inquired
the cause. He answered :
" I have been unlucky in this country.
For some reason or other I have not been
able to keep my friends in America. With
the best feelings and intentions, I appear
to lose as rapidly as 1 make them. 1 think
I have not to-day a single friend."
" Oh, I am sure you have," responded
"Alas!" he exclaimed, sighing, "I fear
I have not !"
" Indeed, you are mistaken, my good
Carl. If you have not so regarded me
heretofore, 1 promise you now that 1 will
always lie your friend."
Rosa's lioyish face kindled with delight ;
he took her gloved hand, and with chival
rous instinct lilted it to his hps.
" And," she added, with a charming in
genuousness, " I will be your wife also, if
A fortnight later they were married.

unless he were liberally encouraged.
Few men or women have been better
partners, sentimentally or financially, than
I'arepa and Rosa. They gave English

notwithstanding the great expense to
which they had gone, they realized hand

THE BLACK HILLS EXPEDITION.
An OtaeM Report by General mfr
A Productive Country Important
St. Pacx, Mixx.v August 22. The re
port of Gen. Custer to the Department
Commander, dated Bear Butte, Black
Hills, Dakotah Territory, Aug. 15, was
received this morning at Gen. Terry's
headquarters. After detailing his opera
tions and explorations, and the finding in
one direction of an impassable barrier
which he finally circumvented, the Gene
ral says : I propose to return by a differ
ent route, although, perhaps not a short
er route than that adopted in coming to
the Black Hiils. I am induced to make
tliis change in order to embrace a larger
extent of unexplored country within the
limits of our explorations, and particular
ly to enable us to locate as much as possi
ble of that portion of the Littie Missouri
of which nothing is now known. 1 ex
pect the expedition to reach Fort Lincoln
on the 31st of August.
This expedition entered the Black Hills
from the west side, penetrated through the
eastern and most southern ranges, explor
ed the major portions of the interior, and
passed out the most eastern ranges, which
form the boundary of the Black Hills,
from the foot. That in all our principal
marches through the Black Hills we have
taken, without serious obstacle, a heavily
laden train of over one hundred wagons.
It may be inferred that the Black Hills do
not constitute the impenetrable regions
heretofore represented on entering them
from any direction. The most serious
obstacles were encountered once near
the outer base. This probably accounts
for the mystery which has so long: existed
regarding the character of the interior.
I can repeat what 1 have said in previous
dispatches : No part of the United States
can boast of richer or better pasturage.
purer water, (the natural temperature of
which, in summer, as it nows irom me
earth, is but 12 degrees above the freezing
point,) and of greater advantages general
ly to the farmer or stock-raiser than are
to be found in the Black Hills. Building
stone of the best quality is to be found in
inexhaustible quantities. Wrood for fuel
and lumber sufficient for all time to come.
I.ains are frequent, with no evidence iu
the country of either drouth or freshets.
The seasons, perhaps, are too short, and
the nights too cool, for corn, but I believe
all othet firain could be produced here in
wonderful abundance. Wheat particular
ly would yield largely. 1 will only men
tion the fact that iron and plumbago have
been found, and beds of gypsum of appa
rently inexhaustible qi antity. I referred
in a former dispatch to the discovery of
gold. Subsequent examinations at nu
merous points confirm and strengthen the
fact of the existence ot gold in tne uiack
Hills. On - some of the water-courses
almost every panful of earth produced
gold in small yet paying quantities.
Brirf halts in rapid marching prevents
anything but a very hasty examination of
the country in tins respect, dm iu one

edge where so sreat a depth was reached.
a hole was dug eight feet deep. The mi
ners report they found gold among the
roots of the grass, anil from that point to
a lower point reached, gold was found in
naving Quantities. It has not required an
expert to find gold in the Black Hills, as
men without former experience m mining
have discovered it at an expense ot but
little time or labor. As an evidence of the
rich pasturage to be found in this region,
I can state that my beef herd, after march
ing upwards of 1.400 miles, is in better
condition than when I started, being now
as fat as consistent with marching cpndi
tion. The same may be said of the mules
of the wagon train. The horses of the
command are in good working condition

portunity to improve their breeds ot stock
The same principle of selling articles on

The tmtries in other departments are
already so large that the managers have
found it necessary to employ a considera

new buildings and the enlargement and
reconstruction ol others.
The new Fine Art Hall, with its large
collection of fine pictures, statuary, etc.,
will add much to the attractions of the ex

A Warning to Married Men.
A well known manufacturer of this city
visited his family a few days since at one
of the popular summer resorts not a thou
sand miles from Falmouth. Happening
to have an unusually well tilled pocket
book, upon retiring for the night he placed
it in one of his boots for safe keeping,
omitting, however, to say anything about
it to his wife. Fatigued with the long
ride, he soon fell asleep, and upon awaken
ing early in the morning sought in vain
tor his boots and his money. Bousing his
wife with anxious inquiries about "those
boots," he learned that she had found them
lying around and had set them outside the
door for the hotel bootblack. A few sec
onds later a well developed, manly form
with only " one or two clothes on," was
notioed making rapid strides for the por
ter's lodge, with the "ragged edges of
anxiety, remorse, ruin and despair " dis
tinctly mapped out on his usually beaming
countenance. It remains for us to add. as
a simple act ot justice to all parties, that
the porter was honest, the money restored,
and our manufacturer firmly convinced of
the propriety of having no secrets from
his wife in future. Worcester Gazette.

How to Clean Soap-suds. It is well
known, says an Australian paper, that a
little alum dissolved is very cnecuve in
clcanm? muddy water; but a short time
since, some alum was applied in a manner
which, from its novelty and its valuable
results, is worthy ot notice, in a piace
where wnter is scarce at present, a little
alum was dissolved in hot water, and
thrown into a tub of thick soap-suds. In
a moment the soan curdled, and accom
panied bv the muddy particles, sank to the
bottom, leaving the water perfectly clear,
Hire, and devoid of smell. This water
was found very useful for washing cloth
ing again, when poured on tne seuimenc.
A similar result was attained in a quick
mniiner. bv filling a boiler with soap-suds
placing it on a lire and throwing a bit of
alum into it. When the suds boiled, the
scum went over and left the water clear,
soft, and as useful for washing clothes as
it had onginaiiy been.
Cucumber Pickles. First get a good

U millonsof water to every 5 gallons of

When vour iar ii full put a clean flannel
cloth over them with a weight heavy
enough to keep them under the brine, and
keen the cloth clean and free from mold.
Now in soaking them for use, the quicker
it is done the better your pickles win De.
When freshening keep plenty of fresli
water on them. Now scald in a brass or
copper kettle, using weak vinegar for the
purpose, and about enough to cover your
pickles, adding a lump of alum large as a
quail's egg to every gallon of pickles.
Scald slowly until they get scalded hot.
but do not let them boil ; take them out
and lay them in a stone jar, using cinna
mon or eloves to suit the taste. Spread
1 large coffee-cup of sugar to 1 gallon of
pickles over them ; then pour vinegar uot

will do for use again. If made in this
way they will keep for months and be as
plump and sweet as uie uay uiey cio

strono-. na that would make them sour
and destroy the taste of the sugar.

A Tonno- son of one of the principal ex
aminers in the ratent-Oftice at Washing

uncle's in Kentucky, near the Ohio liiver.
There was but one restriction on the scope
of the boy's amusements. Horses, dogs,
rifles, shot-guns, etc., etc., were freely al

but as his cousins were as fond of the water
as so many ducks, he was requested to

to use in their aquatic excursions. lie prom

and who is a large planter, thought the
ferry business a good investment, and ac
cordingly started one of his own in oppo
sition to "the Nails. The General employed
two brothers named Coe and a young
man named Cole to run his ferry for him.
Both ferries have run along smoothly, the
Nail ferry, perhaps, doing the most busi
ness. Last Saturday afternoon a large party
of movers from the State came to the fer
ry for transportion. Mr. Nail succeeded
in engaging passage, when one ot the Coe
brothers came over to Nail's boat and of
fered additional inducements for the mov
ers to take his boat. This caused a quar

learned what was the matter, he turned to
Coe and said: "Why don't you kill the

tween Nail and the General, which re
sulted in the former drawing a pistol and
shooting the General, the ball striking in
the left breast near the heart, and ranging
downwards. When the General fell, the
man Cole, who had come up by that time,
drew his pistol and firing brought young
Nail to the ground. hue on me grounu,
Nail raised his revolver, and taking a cool
aim, dropped Cole dead in his tracks.
Then Coe, the man wun wnom ne nan
first had a dispute, pulled his pistol and
shooting Nail where he lay, killed him.
This ended the tragedy. Mr. all and
Cole killed and General Darnell mortally
wounded, and in all probability dead be
