MORNING, MARCH 5,

In glnncing over jestenlay's Bl'Llktix, I
diucoYered an extract from a lecture on the
iunjL'ct ol prohibition. delivered
ly the Rev. Chancellor II. Crosby,
fvuuw mo to make an extract
irom the to me- flimsy ar'ument8 ho

Has the wine-loving, Rev. Dr., ever con

moral sense of the community to spread
over it the restriction of the drunkard, as it
would lie to imprison all the community
with the imprisonment of the thief, lest by
liberty they should all fall to thieving.
I wonder if this clerical defender of
drunkard manufacturers lias ever thought
what the result would be, if our govern
ment licensed places all over the country-
tens of thousands ot them where thieving
in all its branches, should be taught? And
if these pernicious schools were made
pleasant and fascinating to old and young,
by every attraction that gratifies the eye,
soothes the ear, or tickles the palate-
music, pictures, flowers, warmth, delicious
linncrs till sixty thousand of our
noblest ami best men become professional
thieves every year, and ns many more were
acquiring this shocking habit with little
hope of their ever being reformed, would
the Rev. Dr. fight against a law abolishing
all these pernicious schools, and rendering
it impossible for other persons ever to be
When we see our husbands, sons and
daughters, by tens of thousands, becoming

The Prinoe of Wales and the '"Vet,"
Tho Prince of Wales, sayi a London
correspondent of the Philadelphia
Telegraph, is not at all apt to stand on
ceremony, as was his father, the prince
consort. Ho cultivates tho social vir
tue to a greater extent probably, than
any of his forerunners, and is hail-fellow-well-met
with everyone with whom
he is thrown in contact. A littlo story
is going round the clubs now which is
conclusive proof of this, and rellecU
great crodit upon the prince. The vet
erinary surgeon of a crack housohold
cavalry regiment was lately asked to
dine at Marlborough house. Now a
doctor of horses, oven iu one of her
majesty's finest cavalry regiments, ia
not quito upon a par with tho humblest
dispenser of pill and potions to human
beings. Veterinary surgeons usually
aro gentlemen, and, as such, are re
ceived by their brother officers; but a
"Vet" is not eligible to be presented at
court, and would not be ranked as a
"gentlemen" by the Herald's college,
or court master of ceremonies. Al
though in former times the offices of
farrier and veterinary surgeon were
combined, t hey have for a generation or
two, in the army, at any rate, been
quite distinct, and the latter has to n.tss
as stiff tin "exam" us a member of tho
Royal College of Surgeons beore he is
considered compnUmt to administer
boluses and drenches to her majesty's
But when the "Vet" in question was
invited to dine with the Prince of Wales,
he felt that bis royal highness had been
under a misapprehension as to his soc
ial status, or he would never have ask
ed him. Under the circumstances, as
a gentleman, he felt bound to let the
prince know that ho wasn't a gentle
man, and accordingly requostodhis col
onel to explain tho matter to his royal
highness. When Albert Edward heard
of it he waxed mighty wroth, and not
only insisted that the "Vet" should
dine with him, but. is moving heaven
and earth, and the Horse Guards, to get
the red-tape department to soe the mat
ter in tho same light that ho1 does, and
hasten to remove the slur cast upon a
right deserving class of gentlemen.
The new Senate of the United States
will have a pretty strong representation
of Bible nanu s. There will bo eleven
Johns, seven Jameses, I hive Thomases,
and three Matthews, making twenty
four in all who hear names of the
apostles. Two Josephs, three Benja
meiis, and one Zebulon are representa
tives of the sons of Jacob, and one Eli,
three Samuels, one David, nnd one
Daniel, make up the list of thirty-six
scriptural names. A Justin and an
Ambrose, however, are thrown in to
prevent tho early church from being
Greenhouse and Window Plants.
Insects, when found on the plants,
should be destroyed nt once by usin"
tobacco water, soapsuds, etc. Plants?
if neglected, may bo ruined In a short
time. Success in tho light with insecta
depends largely upon one's promptness
Climbers, like English ivy, troprco
lum, German ivy, etc., add very much
to tho beauty of a greenhouse or win
dow. Hanging baskets should bo placed
where they can have an abundance of
light and sunshine, and not near the
stovo or register. If tho lirrbt comes
from ono side, tho basket ought to bo
turned every day.
Watering: The successful culture of
house plants depends largely upon the
care in watering. The pots should have
some pieces of broken pots or oyster
shell put in the bottom to provide pro
per drainage; with good drainage there
is but little risk from over-watering.
A thorough wetting when water is need
ed, is far better than keeping tho sur
face moist, by frequent "sprinkling."
Hanging baskets may bo dipped iuto a
tub of water.
