He read the newspapers carefully, and when

supposed Charley Roes he sent to learn If the

found what he had been so long in search of,
The child's hair had been dyed, and he had

The office of the Black Rod, the iccumbent
of which came into prominent notice at the
recent opening of the British Parliament, is so
old that its origin is all but lost in obscurity
The holder was originally a servant about tr.e
court, his emblem denoting that he was to keep
order, and see that people behaved with deco
rum in the House of Lords. From time to time
his status improved and the emoluments in
creased. His duties are now mostly cotined
to summoning the House of Commons, in the
ni.nme of the Moverelgn, to attend at the bar of
the Ho.use of Lords to hear the opening or
valedictory speech from the Throne. the
House of Commons makes it a point to shut its
doors in the face of the messenger, to show
that they are quite independent of the Lords.
The Black Rod has to knock thrice at the door
of the Commons, when the Sergeant-at Arms
interviews him through a small aperture in the
door, and keepe him waiting until the Speaker
is nloformed of the messenger's pretence, and
says, "Admit him." Black Rod then advances
gravely along the floor, bowing to the Speaker
every three or four paces. After delivering his
message he retires backward, as he came, and
makes it a great point in that most awkward
process to go over the same line as on entering.
MAcINI.-It is worthy of notice that no au
thoritative statement was given, although
demanded, touching the alleged abuses of
the clergy in Italy. On the other hand, past
Ministers of the Crown have publicly de
clared that the Catholic clergy have been
distinguished above other classes in Italy
for the honesty with which they have paid
the taxes imposed on them. And now,
when special laws are enacted for their an
noyance, tribute is borne to their merit by
no less a person than Signor Mancini, the
Minister who introduced the law against
clerical abuses. It was proposed to pass a
law exposing to fine and imprisonment any
priest who should dare to celebrate mar
riage without the civil ceremony belng
previously performed. Signor Mancini
opposed this suggestion and quoted statis
tics to prove that the clergy had done much
to prevent the marriages of persons by the
religious rite alone. tHe proved that the
priests had prevailed on many couples to
fulfil the requirements of the civil law.
And he asserts that the fees paid to the
civil authorities were too high for the peo
ple to pay. It was the cost of the civil
marriage which compelled the poorer
classes to content themselves with marriage
by a priest, to whom but a trifling sam was
paid. Signor Maneini now proposes to
abolish the fees paid on civil marriages is

i Among the notable events of this year Is the
formation of a colony atBostou to settle in th
dr State of Virginia. The movement is healthy
in more respects than one. Massachusetts
m espeolally in its chief clties, is overcrowdes
with population. Manufetacres were unduly
stimulated by the war of the rebellion, and
retrenchment of producotion has created . a
army of the unemployed. Many of these must
necessarily look to some other employment, for
e a long time to come, as a means of livelihood,
and it is manifest that neither the soil nor oil
me mate of New England afford a good field foz
ntl the ordinary agriculturist- On the other band,
fl the Old Dominion proffers a genial olimate and
a soil that promises an abundant yield to
es faithful labor. *Farming in Virginia has been
ter found by recent immigrants to be both plea
or sant and profitable, and the same may be said
of Kentucky and Tennessee. In many respecte
these are the finest part of this continent, and
yet they are much in need of a people to culti
i tivate and utilize this earthly paradise.
Among those who already have given proof of
their admiration of this favored latitude are
Caleb Cushing and General Butler, the latter
id, having invested, it is said, in some two hun
1at dred thousand acres of the saored soll of the Old
a Dominion. It may seem singular that New

us, dices of the past go for nothing, and when the
prospect of a future, rich beyond all former
alt dreams, has blotted out many sectional an
le tipathies.
Those who study the problem of our popula
it. tion are convinced that there should be some
outlet for the overcrowded cities of the North,
wd with their severe winters and terrible records
of destitution and sufering. Of late year
there has been an influx of our young men
e- from country to city, in addition to the large
ng foreign element that seems to prefer taking its
, chance in the throng to the still wider chance
'u of success offered in the agricoltural districts.
All our large towns are overrun with stalwart
youths looking for situations as bookkeepers
and olerks, and with able-bodied laborers seek
ug ing odd jobs, and insisting that the taxpayers
Iv- shall support them, whether there is work to
it. be done or not. If matters are to remain as
as they are, the result will be that every large
rk city will have a permanent army of paupers,
m. whose independence has been destroyed by
on publio charity, from which crime can always
reeruit its ranks. Such a result is in every
is way undesirable. It tends to vitiate the masses
of and to heap heavy burdens upon the taxpayer.
he The evil notion that a man most needs be
it. furnished work by the authorities at whatever
or point he may choose to pitch his tent needs to
is be eradicated. So long as there are broad
a, fields waiting to be tilled, railroads yet to be
no built, mines in which the shining ore is ready
for the toucoh of the pick, and, in a word, op
portunity everywhere else, there is no reason
why' a city should give its surplus population
the bread of idleness. For this class the waste
places of Virginia, with their fertile soil and
° genial Atmoophere. are opened with promise of
n abundant return for labor. There lsno plopeer
re work to be done there. The wilderness was
* subdued long since by the early settlers.
is Now there is only hard labor for a while, com
d* bined with a littleself-saerifioe, and the golden
returns await the husbandman. There, too,
the small capitalist may-betake himself with
e sure hope that fortune awaits him, and that all
difficulties will vanish before a determined
e- spirit. It is strange, indeed, that there is so
i, much talk of emigration to tbe West and so
, little of the South and its claims, when there
d every comparison, in point of agriculture and
er and markets, is in favor of the latter section.
u- A little capital will go a good ways there, and,
n, under the pressure of these hard times, there
i. ought to be any number of colonists furnished
id from the large cities of the North. An organized
* movement in this direction, influenced by lead
- ing and responsible citizens, might go far
9. towards solving the problem of our surplus
le population. The one objection made to the
scheme is that sectional prejudices may make
it nnpleasant for Northern men to seek a home
in Virginia and its neighboring States. This
is a mere bugbear, and has no foundation in
. fact.
a In this connection, we would call special
attention to the following letter, copied from
a last Sunday's Picayune, on the
Iberville Parish, La., Feb. 27, 1877.
d T. the Editor of the Piosaynoe
h For the information of the general publio,
emigrants contemplating removal to our State,
and partioularly for thu benefit of the thou.
g sands of youth living in idleness in and about
e our large cities, I present the following as an
exhibit of what can be done in our State with
common energy and enterprise.
Sugar culture in every case has proved a
paying investment, and experience has taught
that with the proper system means are avail
able by which the youth of our State can ac
quire an honest living.
The subject I shall present as an example is
taken from the " Hermitage," in Iberville
e patish, La., lately owned by Mr. James Auger,
a planter of great experience. .The place was
worked last season upon the plan now being
e adopted by many others, called "tenant eys
tem," by which the proprietor gives to the
tenant one-third of all that is produced on the
place, be furnishing all necessary seeoes for
condooting the year's work, the tenant simply
furnishing common labor.
Mr. James Anger contracted daring 1876 with
three parties, J. O. Terrell, J. I. Brown and
Jules Kerme, all Creoles and "to the manner
born." Each of these parties received one-third
of such products as they cultivated.
Mr. Anger on his part furnished all necessary
lands, buildings, seed, mules and agricultural
implements. He advanced all cash or provi
slons on one year's time, and ausemed all cost
in the manipulation of the case crop.
The place from 200 acres oultivated produced
153 hbds. sugar, 250 bbls. of molasees and 1700
bbls. oorn, and other necesosary prodote oin
small quantities for ordinary consumption.

It will be seen by the above that tshe tenant
sumes no expense beyond the hire of the
labor. Mr. Auger aeunmed all cost of wear and
tear on wagons, hrnssem and rle-.hons ma
chinery. This example shows that each of
theoe parties hu earned a good living--a bet
tbo on. than the individhal who stands behind
the oounter at $76 pee month, or the book-J'
keeper who works ontil 12 o'clock at night for i
300 days in ths year and gets the alim piraneo

d Referring to the fact that a large colony
of Belgians are about to leave Belgium to
t settle in Texas, the San 'Antonio Berald
Ssays :
This is a subject of more than usual im
r portance, because the Belgians as a people,
I, like the French, are, as a rule, strongly
1 opposed to emigration. Belgium is a per
feet beehjive of industry, both agricultural
° and mechanical- hence a colony from that
country would be worth more to Westera
Texas than from'any other country or loca
d lity. We remarked that they were averse
to emigration; this as a rule is true;
the parents are unwilling to part with their
f children, who all contribute the proceed.
a of their labor to the common stock, and al
r though wages are extremely low, yet the
united earnings ofa family amount to a con
siderable sum. This stay at'bome policy
results, of course, in an increase of the
population which in 1871, was 5,113,780-a
e larger number to the square miles than in
r any other country in Europe. In fact for
the last fifty-four years theemigration from
Belgium has only been 20421, all told.
No country in the world presentsa higher
e state of cultivation than Belgium. 1Pas
through Belgium in whatever direction
a you may, and of every hundred acres, sev
onlty- two are sown with cereals and plants
a used in manufactures; twenty-eight with
a oats and forage; but to the latter must be
S added thirty-one acres of after crop, which
gives fifty-nine as affording excellent food
for cattle superior to common meadows in
Europe, and which shows how poor land
can pay a rent of twenty dollars an acre
peranonnm. We dwell on these minutia
s to demonstrate to our people what an in
s valuable opportunity is presented to them
to obtaintin this Belgian colony, skill and
labor in all varieties of agriculture, that
labor which is the best in the world.
Everyone who has visited Belgium will
recognize the faithfulnes of the following
description :
Every road is bordered with trees, not a
rise in the ground is seen ; all is calm, uni
1 form, and presents an image of quiet, com
fort and peace. Each house is detached
and surrounded with apple orchards,
hedged in box, holly and hawthorn where
the cows are broughtto feed every morn
iag and evening. It is of one story only
and thatched containing four rooms, the
f first for meals, the second for the dairy,
and preparing the food for the cattle,
s and the others for sleeping rooms. The
* old fashioned oak furniture is a model of
brightness, tin and copper utensils shine on
the walls, which are whitewashed. The
garden is goy with wall flowers, dahlias,
I and hydrangeas, and the florists flowers
I which are shown at Ghent, outside every
) thing is in its place; nothing spoils the
green award; the manure heap is always
under the roof of the stable or cowlshed. In
this stand five or six cows, the constant
care of the farmers wife, who give them
abundance of green food in summer, with
I straw, hay and a kind of warm soup, mixed
I with the carrots, turnips or rye, or barley
in winter. Thanks to this nouoishment
and the constant rest they enjoy, the ani
male give from fifteen to twenty-five
quarts of milk daily. The tools are simple,
but of first-class construction ; the plow is
light, drawn by one horse, and works with
ease and regularity; the harrows are of
various kinds, triangular, rectangular, and
and parallelogram ; but the special tool is
the spade; this is the Instrument with
which the Belgian has fertilized his landsu
dried up marshes, and forced back the sea.
The proverb on the banks of the - Scheldt
is: "' The spade is the gold mine of the
peasant," and different kinds are made for
lighte or heavy soil. Hence, it is of prime im
portance to Western Texas to secure this
colony of several scores of families, who
are so unexpectedly brought to seek a rels
dence in Western Texas. A more desirable
population could not be presented to usn
they bring with them their own priest and
propose to settle in one colony.
MANY.-In Krupp's works there were 12,100
hands employed in the spring of 1875 ; in
September, 1876, there were 9,000. The
wages for twelve hours were $1; now they
are 80 cents. In the works or Horde in
1875, 2,800 men were employed, who work
ed six double shifts every week; in 1876
there were 1,500 men working five double
shifts. The Ganto Hoffoung-Hntte. at Ob
erhausen, employed in March, 1873, 7,175;
in October, 1874, 5,876; in January 1876,
4.142 hands. In the Bochum Steel works
4,600 men were employed in 1873, while the
first two months of 1876 the. number was
FRUIT TRaes -It is a good practice to wash
the trunk and main branches of fruit trees with
lime wash. If the white color is not agreeable,
a little soot can be put in to neutralize the
glare. The wash destroys the eggs of insects
and the germs of fungi, and keeps the bark
free to swell as the cells grow. Where the
white scale abounds on the bark the branches
may be painted with linseed oil. It Is a sure
cure, and really seems to make the tree more
healthy and rigorous than it would be without
the wash.
