the columns of tho Herald, ihe fruit
growers of Morgan County to an ex
hibition of Apples, on New Year's day
last past. The exhibition was held in
this office, and, strange to say, no one
appeared to contest for tho champion
whip in growing thin kind of fruit but
Mr. Sigler, Wo think it would have
been useless fur anyone to have com

three different varieties of the luscious
fruit which, all i all, we have never
seen equalled. We thank Mr. SigW

among tho working men in Zunesville,
on account of the proprietor of the

The Social Evil in New York.
In tho city of N ew York, tho num
ber of thoe women who, with a la.
mentable truth, are styled '"abandon
ed," can not be loss than ten thousand.
In 1858, the number of professed pros
titutes, by actual census, wns 7,830;
they must be more numerous now, and
thir roll is continually inr.reasiur.
Already they equal tho population of
two average rural townships. If they
were placed in & line, two abreast,
they would form a procession two and
a half miles long, that would reach
from tho Battery above Union Square.
Of all this ghastly army, onehalf sro
under twenty years of 0o. It only
requires a brief space of carousal and
champagne, of revelry and rum, tore
due a beautiful girl,' fresh from the
country, into a loathsome mass of dis
ease, ready for the paupor's grave.
In addition to the ten thousand
prostitutes, there aro probably twenty
thousand mere who aro oither "kept
mistresses," or the occasional visitors
cf houses of assignation. If the names
of ell these could bepublished.it would
make a fearful quaking ' in society,"
and Home;knccs would "Hmito together"
behind brown stono-fronts.and beneath
Paris laces. Somo years ago New
York was horrified at learning through
the press that a licentious man had
been conducted to a room in a house
of infamy m which he found his Own
wife wa'ting to receive the "wages of
sin. fscitlicr one had susnccted th
inlidelity of the other.
ficJ-Iftho South perish, let none
think that the North can livo. If one
die, both will die. They are bound
together by a ligament stronger, inoro
vital, und more irremovable than that
cf the twins of Sin.ni. Let one bccoaie
a dead body, and tho ligament, decay
ing and putrefying, day by day, back,
back, back, into the bowels and to tho
heart of tho still-living form, will soon
finish the work of Tottenesa and death.
Car Poaring cold wntor on the faco
and head destroys the olToct of narcotic
poipona. A girl poisoned with . lauda
num in England was saved in'thiaway,
after all other remedies had fitiled. .
letf-The receipts of gold in the Treas
ury during tbe current month aro un
usually light. Extraordinary expon
dituree have been made, and the bal
