" It was soon aereed that Hugh Maxwell
,' should call at the house of Mr. Greene
after dinner, at which time and place he
should receive the necessary instructions,
and an the two gentlemen turned to leave
. the wharf. Hush followed them till he
came to the street, and then turning down
..- Ship Street till he came to a small dock
just south of Grant's shipyard, where lay
moored a handsomely built shallop of not
" less than fifteen tons burden She was
"slightly ice-bound, but with the assistance
of twu men, who stepped on board, he
soon had her in good sailing order, and be
fore long he he had everytning in reaai
. ness for the adventure. He .had obtained
a letter for Captain Manley. whieh he
very carefully rolled up within a piece of
, sneet lead, so tnat in case 01 acciaeni ne
might sins, it, and he bai also obtained the
.aooisuuice of four fishermen, who were
nothine loth to ret out of a place where
thir daily avocation "was placed under
such an uncompromising embargo.
. It was drawing towards dusk, when an
x,ugluh nudshipmau came running aown
Battery Alley, and stopping the sentry,
whose post extended from Grant's to
Burrouiihs' wharves, he asked :
" - Sentry, is there a boat anywhere about
here that can be .very easily and very
quickly cast off?" - -"Nothimr
smaller than Maxwell's shal
lop, sir," replied the soldier, as he gazed
- in wonder upon the excited countenance
- of the young officer. .
".Never mind the-size," hastily cried
the midbhipman, 'only show me where
she lay. Be quick, too, or the" rebels
will have the start of us."
The sentry immediately led the way to
. tne dock where the shallop lay, ana as
soon as he had pointed it out, the midship
man hailed one of the men that stood
upon the deck.
"ilallo, there, on board that snailop

" Tnere's three of us, sir," was the re
ply from the vessel.. .. ". ;
"Then start np smartly, all ofyon, and
Ijet on board the Commodore's ship as

- " But, sir," urged the man thus ad
- dressed, " this vessel belongs to another
man, and we have no " --.Z
"Silence, sir, hastiyinterrupted the of-
ficer; "I tear the King's commission, and
if you -dare to disobey me I'll shoot you
the moment you do it 8tart up your
' men, and cast off your shore fasts. Bear
"a hand, now."- Then turning to his com
. panion, the officer continued : : v
" Here sergeant, yon cast of that head
line, while I jump on board and start up
those lazy rebels!".; . . ' - - - : .'
- As he spoke he caught' hold of the
mains ay and slid down upon the-deck,
and then drawing the pia ol from his pock
et, hr sat the three men about the desired
work. As soon as. the sargnt had cast
off the line, he also slid down upon the
deck, and in a f w minutes the- sails were
loosened, and lha vessel started out. r"or
the first " ime the sentry began to think
that thcefflcer ought to have a pass, and
as the thought found room among ihe ex
cited imagin ions of his brain, he hinted
the fact to the officer. -

the officer., " Here. - you man there, for

.' The wind was blowing briskly from the
northward, and the shallop had it fair, and
with flowing sheets she started down the
harbor. As she neared the Admiral's
ship, which lay just off Noddle's Island,
. the midshipman had the sheets hauled in,
and shoving the helm down," the small
p vessel very gracefully -came up underline
ship's stern. ; l " ; -?4 -
' Boat, ahoy !" shouted the officer of the
deck from the poop of the ship.

A Word About Early Rising.
A medical gentleman who gave years
i uivraupuius tne Subject to interview
ing old folks, and rummaging among fam-
y nistories -states thst he never came
across a case of remarkable longevity un
accompanied by the habit of early rising,
from which testimony it might be inferred
that they die early who lie abed late ; but
we hold this to be a f&lacy. The medical
gentleman started with a theory already
formed, aud, after the manner of partisans.
looked at but one sice of the question.
That most elderly people are early ria
ers is due to the damaging fact that they
cannot sleep o mornings. They necessa
rily rise betimes, and unjustifiably make a
monstrous virtue of it Alter a man
pastes his fiilieth bi."thday he usually
awakess at sunrise, though perhaps he
used to let the breakfast bell ring in vain
when he was yonnger. As our theorist
confined his observations to aged people
who could not slumber after the gray
dawn had tapped at the window-pane, he
came easily to the conclusion that men
live to be old because they do not sleep
late, instead of seeisg that they do not
sleep late because they are old. Having
with a great deal cf trouble secured this
lop-sided diUum, cur friend started off
with his theory of rising with the lark.
Not being a lark ourselves, w,e decline to
regulate our movements on any ornitho
logical principle. We believe in a gener
ous allowance of sleep. We believe that
too little sleep is core injurious than too
mach. Unless a man s business or pro
fessional engagements obliges him to turn
out very early, ha does his physical nature
injustice by delracdrag nimsell ot those
delicious morning naps winch so refresh
and strengthen one. For men who do
brain work there is no medicine like plen
ty. of sleep . -

Cervantes' humble hero did not misplace
his benison in showering it on the man
that invented sleep; bat the man that in
vented waking up much before seven
o'clock in the morcizg was no friend to
tne Human race.
There is an immense amount .of non
sense on record in defense of early rising:
this has been written cbieny by poets who

twelve o'clock. Thomson, who gave birth
to the atrocious sentiment embodied in

tating verses on sunrise), and did not often
get fully awake until later in the day, for

garden at Richmond, after breakfast, eating
peaches on a tree, witii Doth bands in his
waistcoat pockets .' .
We would like to snow what induce
ment there is for early rising in the city.
W nat is more snaDDy cna dispiriting than
a city street before the shop window-shutters
are taken down, when nobody is astir
but the milk arid-water man, and Mary
washing off the front stsps ? In the coun
try there is a kind of bloom in the morn
ing, that wears off in an hour or two ; this
is worth enjoying. Daybreak on the sea
coast or up among the mountains is a glo
rious spectacle; but familiarity with it
breeds-contempt, it is your habitual
late riser who takes in the full
richness of nature on- those rare occasions
when he gets up early. It is well enough
to rise with the sun (we won't say with
the lark, because we know nothing about
its eccentricities) two or three times in the
course of the summer, if for no other pur
pose than to be prepared to combat the in
tolerance of the professional early riser,
who, if he were in a state of perfect health,
would lie abed until nine o'clock. There
are few small things more apt to be exas
perating than this early bird with the
worm of his conceit in his bill. How he

r TtrE early a lvent of hot summer weath
er has brought to the notice of the public
the fact that sunstroke ias already proved
fatal in more than one case. Whether
society at large,' particularly men, wear
head gear adapted to resist the solar solstice
and tropical heat like that experienced last
summer, is a matter 'cf hygiene, and
worthy of , consideration. Last year the
Commiasioners of Charities and Correction ;
established the hospital for the reception
of sunstroke patients, in Centre street
The treatment there was eminently suc
cessful during the exceptionally hot sum
mer of last year. The number of cases re
ceived for treatment was seventy, of which
nineteen only proved fatal. Large ai the
proporuon may appear, it is in reality small
with the usual results. Over forty of the
cases brought in had been drinking heavily.
The diagnosis of sunstroke is congestive
apoplexy, and also exhaustion, but the ma
jority of the casts combine the two. The
mode oA treatment is substantially as fol
lows: Application of ice to the head,
which is regulated by toe heat of the body,
the idea being to reduce the compression
of the blood vessels of the head. Mean
while an axillary thermometer is applied
On arrival the patient is divested of all un
necessary clothing, sod placed on cool In
dia rubber sheeting on a bed in one of the
coolest wards. People of lymphatic tern
perameht are those who succumb the more
readily. The change" for ' the better or
worse almost invariably takes place within
twenty-four hours, but one case in opposi
tion to this stands on record, where a man
remained in a comatose state for forty -eight
hours, when death ensued. Bromide of
potassium and stimulants are also part 01

tention is necessary. N. T. Standard.-
Anecdotes About Over-Eating.
- To ehow What gluttons people may un
consciously make of themselves, produc
ing derangement in the system which tbey
cannot account for, the following conver
sation between Abernethy and a gentle
man farmer may be introduced : " Do you
make a good breakfast?" inquired Mr.
Abernethy. " Pretty good," answered the
patient "You lunch?" "Yes, I take
luncheon." " Do you eatahcarty dinner?
" Pretty hearty." "You take tea, I sup
pose?" "Yes, I do." "And to wind up
all, you sup, I suppose r " Yes, I si ways
sup." "Why then, you beast," said the
surgeon, " go home and eat less, aud there
Will be nothing the matter with you." .
This eminent but eccentric physician
was remarkable for the stress he laid upon
over-eating as a cause of disease ; and wis
fond of addressing his patients in such
words ss these : " Your stomach being out
of order, it is my duty to explain to you
how to put it to rights again ; and in my
whimsical way I shall give you an illus
tration of my position, for I like to tell
people something that they will remem
ber. The kitchen, that is your stomach,
being out of order, the garret (pointing to
the head) cannot be right, and every room
in the house becomes affected. Repair tbe
injury in the kitchen, remedy the evil
there, and all will be right in parlor and
chamber; this you must do by diet If
you put improper food into your stomach,
you play the deuce with it, and with the
whole machine besides"
The Duke of Yoik once consulted Aber
nethy, who treated him with the greatest
indifference. The Duke, astonished at
his conduct said, -" I suppose you know
who I am?" -'Suppose I do, said the
surgeon; "what of that? If his High
ness of York wishes to be well, let me
tell him he must do as the illustrious Duke
of Wellington often did in his campaigns
cut off the supplies, and the enemy will
quickly leave the citadel." -.
Strict as Abernethy was in regard to
the "diet of others, he was not very par
ticular as to his own; hence, in common
with other physicians at the present time,
he was often asked why he did not prac
tice what he preached. To such taunts
he would reply by reminding the inquire r
of the sign post; it points the wsy, but
does not follow its course j it is none the
less useful for that
The exact opposite of the gluttons are
the hypochonuriac . men -and nervous
women, who almost starve themselves to
death for fear of injuring themstlves by
eating improper food. To such persons
the advice of Sir Richard Jebb may be
recommended ; he says : " My directions
will be few and simple. You must not
cat the poker, shovel, or tongs, for they
are naTd of digestion; nor the, bellows,
because they are windy: but anyunng
else you please."
The above advice, both to the too great
and the too little eaters, is applicable to
other countries than England, to other
cities than London, and is just as true in
this, as in the last century. Good Jlealtk.

Hints to House Builders.
Many people are about beginning to
build a house. Avoid such lots as will re
quire your house to face north. - Have your
living rooms face south, always, if possi
ble. -Put your hall on the north side of
the house. . Don't spoil your sunny win
dows by stretching a piazza outside which
will keep the sun away. .Live in your
pleasantest room. Build no parlors to
shut up; what is good enough for you, is
good enough for visitors. Have a bow
window in your living room. Make your
windows large and enough of them. Have
plenty of closets. A goodly pantry and a
closet should be connected with the
kitchen. Build a fireplace in your living
room. The height of your rooms should
be one third .the. sum ot the width and
leneth of vour living room If vou build
of wood, use tarred paper under the clap
boards. Whatever else you may not avoid,
don't have a cellar kitchen. The seven
years' itch is a blessing to one of these.
Paint the exterior in three shades of
browns, grays or drabs making blinds
darkest shade. Avoid gimcranks in trim
mings. They cost and get out of repair
easily. Paint sanded outside is most
economical. Never build a flat-roofed
building. Large panes of glass are better
than small, as they clean more easily and
obstruct vision less. . Finish a house inside
with native woods; if you cannot afford
ash. take pine and spiuce and don't paint
them, but shellac and varnish, or merely
oil. They look mucn better, ana, 11 only
oiled, improve by age. Never build a
house without providing a bath-room,
opening into your sleeping room. - You
can pump hot and cold water into it with
slight expense, having a couple of pumps
over your bath tub, one connected with
your cistern and another with your hot
water tank on your stove. LeanMon (Me.)

of which, when rightly understood, are
disgustingly offensive to he taste. Their
presence is evinced by the fact that these

Destroying Burdock. The St Louis
Journal of Agriculture thinks that August
is the time to attack and destroy burdock.
It says the old sterna with burrs on them
should be cut with a spade or mattock
just below the surface, and piled carefully
together while green. After a few days
of dry weather, set fire to them and stand
by till the last burr goes to ashes. This
done, the young plants that have grown
from the seed this year should cither be
pulled up or the roots cut off below the
collar, and thrown upon the manure heap.
Cure fob Stammering. The effectual
cure mainly depends upon the determina
tion of the sufferer to carry out the fol

inspire deeply ; then give time for quiet
utterance, and after very slight practice tbe
hesitation will be relieved." No spasmodic
action of the lower jaw must be permitted
to seperate the teeth when speaking. This
plan, regularly carried out for six months,
cured me when twenty years old. I was
painfully bad, both to myself and others.
Without determination to follow out this
plan, it is of no use attempting it Ex

When to Cut Hay.
Timothy Hat is much more valuable
when cut early than when permitted to
become ripe. If seed is needed, leave a
portion for that purpose ; but the main
crop for hay should be cut when in blos
som. At this period the plant contains
much gum, sugar and starch, which later
become changed into dry, harsh, unnutn
tious, woody fiber. For this reason, cut
early in July. There is a very prevalent
idea that the blossoms causes the hay to
be dusty, and productive of disease to
horses fed on it Heaves are said to be
caused by it This is an error. Any dust
made by the dried blossoms must of necess
ity be shaken off during the handling of
tne nay, and it it were not so, tne dust it
self would be harmless unless taken into
the lungs, which continued, of course.
would be hurtfuL There is no necessity
for the hsy to be fed in such a manner as
to allow this. The injurious dust is that
caused by damp and moid, this is hurt
ful, in a high degree, and care must be
taken to have the hay put in the barn free
from moisture. Timothy hay is very easily
cured ; we have cut it in the forenoon, and
had it well and safely housed' before night
by Having it well-spread and turned dur
ing the day. Hay so gotten in will come
out green and fragrant, will spend. well,
and sell well. It is a common idea that
Timothy is hard on the land. When per
mitted to ripen its seed, this is true, as of
any other grain crop: but when cut early.
is not exhaustive. Cutting early, spares
tne son, gets the nay out ol the way ol the
wheat harvest in good time, and gives the
farmer more nutritious feed for his .stock.
Try it Hearth and Home.
The Management of Clover Hay.
Clover should be mowed as soon as it
is well, in blossom. There is no necessity
to wait for a brown head ; there will be
plenty to be seen .before the crop is well
down. Cut when the dew is off, and al
low to dry until afternoon, wh n it should
be shaken up and turned before the dew
falls. If a tedder is employed, its con
stant ute will fit the clover to be put in
cocks the same day. If turned by baud,
11 may lie until tne noon 01 next day, wnen
it may be put in cocks, made as high and
narrow as possible ; th y will shed rain
better in this shape, and. if caps are used.
a yard square will be sufficiently large to
cover them. Caps are to be strongly
recommended, and the above size is suf
ficient, as the top only needs protection.
Put up, and, thus protected, the hay may
stay in the field until it is all made, when
it may he hauled together. If any cock
should be damp inside, spread for a few
minutes; it will dry rapidly. Clover
cured in the cock is much more valuable
than that dried in the sun, and wastes less
in handling, fut away the first cut hay
by itself, in a place convenient for use in
the spring. Cows comirg in early in the
spring will thrive on this hay: the milk
will be largely Increased in quantity, and
be richer iu quality, while the butter will
come easily, be free from white curdy
specks, and in color will not be far behind
that from June grass. American, Agriculturist.
Cultivate the Corn.
Constant cultivation cannot be too
strongly urged for the corn crop. As soon
as the blade appears above ground, pass
through the rows with a harrow made for
the purpose, or with the cultivator. Con
stant stirring of the soil will destroy the
young weeds and push the corn ahead. A
week thus gained may save the crop from
an injurious frost when near ripening. An
excellent implement lor tbis purpose is
Shares' horse-hoe ; with it a careful hand
mav cut out the weeds to within an iuch
of the growing corn. By going twice in a
row the crop may be encctuaiiy hoed, and
much hand weeding saved. - The aoTTdoes '
not need stirring detply; one inch is
sufficient ; deeper-would injure the corn
roots, which : love to spread -near the sur
face. Fur this reason all deep cultivation
should be avoided. The surface should be
kept level; the crop --will 'thrive better
than by burying the roots under a ridge of
soil ; therefore, keep the plow out ol the
cornfield. This crop requires heat and
moisture, and a level, mellow, porous' sur
face will secure these. A soil packed with
rain and baked by the hot sun,1 cannot be
endured ; therefore, If a heavy rain should
occur, followed by dry weather, turn in at
once to the exclusion of ail else, and break
up this trust This may be done safely
even after the" corn lain tasseL"-"With
level and shallow cultivation no check
will be given, and good results wul follow.
The roots will be uninjured. It is the dis
turbance of the roota, when the plant is in
blossom, that checks the growth and in
jures the corn. - Corn need not be laid by
until the rows become so close that the
horse can no longer pass through without
breaking down the stalks.- Permit only
three stalk to a hill. If planted three feet
apart each way, with one fair ear to each
stalk, seventy bushels of shelled corn per
acre may be counted on. Better cultivate
five acres -well, than to work and grow
weary over twenty, acres aud get but fif
teen bushels per acre for yourpny. Amer

The Childless Home.
Mart newly-married people consider
childlessness a peculiarly fortunate cir
cumstance. It relieves them from many
cares, annoyances and vexations. It abol
ishes the nurse, 'sleepless nights, " Mrs.
Winslow," and tbe cradle. It gives op
portunities for parties,, balls, the opera,
and sundry trips to the mountains and
sea-shore, which would be ex'-eedingly
inconvenient if a little trouble-maker had
to be taken along or left - behind. . There
is nobody to litter the floors, turn the
show articles upside down, and make con
fusion generally ; and there are no sobs nor
squalls, which those may call "music" who
have an ear for such sounds, " which our
childless people have not And then, the
landlords are always so civil when they
are told, "No children;" that is the
"open sesame" to any desirable suit of
apartments or love of a cottage. Indeed,
many of our newly married people -look
upon no children as the universal panacea
for the ills of life, and the infallible re
cipe for connubial, and, indeed, all other
' But after awhile the brightest and most
engaging couples tire of receptions, tnea
tres, concerts, and the like. The appetite
for excitement becomes sated. The relish
for artificial enjoyments gets cloyed. The
desire for comfort and quiet tikes the
place of the feverish craving for active
pleasures. ' To sit down at home over an
entertaining book : to break the monotony
of an evening by a pleasant -chit chat , a
lew toucnes 01 music, or ui amusing
'game; to be; warned of! to bed by
velvet-footed ""dreams, stealing over
the senses and fining' the ' fancy
with drowsy delights these things in
variably come in time. . And then comes a
yearning for something the heart has not,
a looking for what the room does not con
tain, a feeling after what no provision has
been made for.- But the cradle does not
come. The aversion to "care, infantile
cries, and confusion of ail sorts, has be
come chronic; but little Two Shoes is a
tvrant and wherever he sets CD his small
despotism insists that the " laws of dis
order "shall prevail.- The aestre lor some
body to pet, and play with, and dote upon,
grows to a hunger, which, alas, does not
feed itself, and only gives way to the more
painful need of that sympathy, affection,
friendship, solace, and support which none
but a child can supply. There may be
wealth; yet who but a child shall keep at
bay the great brood of vultures and cor
morants which peck remorselessly at the
life of whoever has a purse? .There may
be social position, and even fame; but
how empty and barren are all honors that
must dissolve with the breath of their
wearer ? The home may be a palace ,- but
its splendid halls will be cold and cheer
less as the rorecourt ot a sepuicnre, 11 tney
are -not made the portcls of Heaven by
the prattle, the merry laugh,, and innocent
hilarity of children, through whom the
Divine Paternity bestows perennial youth,
and hope, and earthly immortality upon
Of all cheerless, unnatural places in the
world, a childless home is quite the most
uncomfortable. There is something op
pressive in its vacancy. Its stillness is sti
fling. The heart faints and cries for what
is not there. The home into which the
Great Father has once placed one of His
little ones, for however short a stay, is
transformed by that visitation, and can
never lose the charm of that mysterious
coming, - nor the light that streamed
through the door of the noiseless depart
ure. That door is open, and no hand can
shut it ; and just on the other side the un
seen child engages in gambols, or is busied
with tasks, which it needs but a little im
agination, blended with faith, for a parent's
heart to hear. ..No . home can ever be the
same again into which one immortal being
rose to conscious life, and saw a heaven of
love in a mother's eyes. Birth is the great
sacrament But the home that has had no
such baptism, cold, dull, and dreary is it at
the best with none f the poetry of life
in it, no legends of angels trailing about
it, and no star shining over it to indicate
that it is favored of Heaven. The Golden
