Heap high the golden corn ;
No richer gift has autumn poured
From out her lavish born.
Let other lands,exulting, glean .
The apple from the pine;. i. .

We better love the hardy gift : '
Our rugged vales bestow,
To cheer us when the storm shall drift
Our harvest fields with snow.
Throneh vales of grass and flowers
Our plows their furrows made.
While on the hills the sun and showers
Of changeful April played. -
We dropped the seed o'er bill and plain,
Ketieath the sun of May,
And frightened from our sprouting grain
The robber crows away.
All through the long, bright days of Jane
its leaves grew bright aud fair.
And waved in hot midsummer noon, ,
its soil and showy hair.
And now with autumn's moonlight eyes,
J u harvest time is come.
We pluck away its frosty leaves.
And bear Its treasures borne. " '
Then richer than the fabled gifts , '
Appollo showered of old,
Fair hands the broken graftis shall sift,
And knead its meal of gold.

Gov. Brown on Louisiana.
Governor Brown's message to the
Legislature closes as follows :
"Permit rue to express my congratu
lations that unlike the Legislative As
sembly of our sister State, you have
been allowed to assemble peaceably
and jKrfect your organization without
iutimidation. No military force sur-
Tt'tmds your capitol or drives from
their rightful seats: the representatives
of the people. The edict of a petty
tyrant does not here avail to disperse
the State Legislature. Yet, your im
munity from such an outrage is just
now made more conspicuouous by the
Fpectaclc of Louisiana tramped under
foot and despoiled of her liberties.
If we may credit the reports that reach
us through the daily press and which
set-m to have the sanction of official
authority, the power of the national
government thrtTugh its military arm
is being used for the subversion of the
liberties of the people of Louisiana.
Possibly it is not in your power to do
more than interpose a solemn and ear
nest protest against this glaring crime.
Vet if this be all that the representa
tives of bo valorous a State as Tennes
see may do, I trnt that your protest
may be made with such emphasis and
earnestness as to arrest tbettention
of vcry patriotic citizen in this Re
public and awaken the people every
where to a sense of the daneer that
threatens our constitutional liberties.
" ' f : Charge It. ' " 1 ft
A simple little sentence is this, to
be sure, and yet it may be considered
as one of the most insidious enemies
.with which people have to deal. It is
very pleasant to have all the little
commodities offered for sale in the
market, and it sometimes hard to deny
buc's self of the same -when they ran
be obtained by saying "charge it."
.But this habit of getting articles, how
ever sm ill the charge may be, without
paying for them, keeps one's funds in
a low state most of the time.
' I have no money to-day, but should
like the article very much," says a
young man who haponed to go into a
store, and sees something which strikes
bis fanev. ;
"Nevermind, says the gentlemanly
clvrk. "you are good for it."
"Well. I will take it, and you may
And so it is that little accounts are
tH'ned at one place and another, till
tin young man is f urbrised at his lia
bilities; w hich though small in detail,
are sufficiently large in the aggregate
to reduce his cash materially when
settling day comes.
In many instauees, if the cash were
required, the purchase would not be
made, even had the person the money
by him ; but to some getting an article
charged, does not seem like parting
with an equivalent.
Still when pay-day comes, as it al
ways docs, this illusion vani.-hes, and
a feeling is experienced of parting
with money and receiving uothing in
If there is an actual necessity for
makine a purchase, and the means are
not at hand, there is a reasonable ex
cuse for obtaining the sitae on credit;
but when the artiele cau be disiHnsed
with until payment can be made, it is
much to the advautage of the purch
aser to do so.
A TOrxti fellow in San Francisco
suddenly snatched a kiss from a lady
friend, and excused his conduct by
Baying that it was a sort ot temporary

him,. Yhen he arose to take Ins

"If you ever feel any more such fits

C RADICAL MALIGMTT. V
A Mean Assault Upon the Southern
The following is from the Cincinnati
Gazette, one of the very few Repub
lican papers of the country claiming
any circulation or influence that have
sustained the infamous course of Grant
and Sheridan toward Louisiana:
"The Methodist Episcopal Church
Souih wants the United States to pay
it $300,000 as damage for its occupancy
of the Book Concern at Nashville, du
ring the war. It is not denied that a
large proportion of the membership
of the church was disloyal, but it is
held that the chureb as such, was a
non-political body, and so not hostile
to the Government. In considering
the responsibility of a corporation, one
rnu't look at the conduct of its au
thorized representatives and it will not
require much searching to discover
that Dr. McFerrin, the agent of the
Book Concern, and the editors of the
different Church periodicals at -Nashville,
were fierce rebels. All the em
ployes who lid not take the, oath of
allegiance to the Confederacy and sym
pathize with its cause were dismissed
at the very ohtbreak of the war.--"When
the national defeat at Bull TLnn
was known at Nashville, these officials
were cpoa in their exultations,, and
some of them were seen discharging
fireworks, while others exclaimed that
the Lord was on the Southern side.
Bishop Andrew recommended the
agent to secure the printing of the
Confederate authorities, and there
were actually issued from the-concern
school Looks, almatoacsiaud other pub
lications of an out-and-out rebellious
character. Pirated editions cf North
ern works were also published there.
Other bishops of the church besides
Dr. Andrew were undisguised in the
expression of their rebel proclivities.
If,then, the officers and membership
of a church were overwhelmingly
rebel, it is a miserable quibble to as
sert that the denomination was unpo
liticaL!' ., : ,

From the Nashville Banner, 23d insL '
Mr. John Frierson is in tlo city. In
regard - to the; statement made by
Ilobba that he (llobbs) received the
$10,000 from Wm. Duncan on a check
signed by him, (Frierson,) Mr. Frier
son says that he" signed no check", order
or draft, either as an individual or as
President of the First National Bank
of Columbia, lie knew of no one
being connected with the furnishing
of the $10,000 other than Duncan.
Duncan told him that he (Duncan) had
paid Hftbb $10,0 J to rcMgn.-Mr.
Frierson had, according to his owu
statement, been, talked to" by, llobbs
about his resigning, and advised such
a step. He says he never made any ap
plication to Governor Brown for the
appointment either for himself or for
auy oue else, and had never talked to
Governor Brown about any probable
vacancy in the office of Comptroller at
any time prior to the resignation of
linhhs. i i : 'm . ','
Mr. Friersen explains his absence
by frankly admitting that ha was de
sirous of not appearing before the
House Investigating Committee oa
account of confidences that had been
reposed 111 him. .' .
: The intimation of llobbs that he
(Frierson) had drawn the draft on
which the $10,000 was' paid," together
with tho fact that he had met Colonel
John House in Alabama and freed
himself by telling him that he (Frier
son) could not allow his own reputa
tion to suffer on account of the Hobbs
House transaction these two consid
erations caused him to no longer hesi
tate, but come forward' and tell just
wh.it he really did know and do in the
I pass some houses in every town
whose windows might as well be seal
ed in with the walls for any purpose
they have but to let in light. They
are never opened, summer or winter.
In the winter it is cold; in the sum
mer the flies stray in, or, if they are
netted, the dust sifts through the nets.
Now, I can tell a person who inhabits
such chambers when I see him in the
t-trect there is such a smell about bis
clothing I always wish for a sniff of
cologne, or hartshorn, or burnt leather
or something of that sort, "to take the
tesse out." "A house that is never aired
has every nook and corner tilled with
stale dors of cooked meats, boiled
vegetables, especially cabbage and ou
ions, which, as the weeks go by, liter
ally ret-k in their hiding places. The
very garments of the children tell the
same story of uuc-lcanliness. It is bad
to have uuwashed clothes, but there
may be an excuse for it But what
excuse can there be for unaired ones,
when air is cheap and free? There is
death in such unaired chambers. Bet
ter a swarm of flies, or a cloud of dust;
better frost and snow -in a room than
these intolerable smells. The first
thing in the morning, when you are
ready to go down stairs,' throw open
your windows, take apart the clothing
of tour beds and let the air blow
through it as hard as it will. There
is health in such a policy.
Talue of .Smiles.
Who can tell the value of a smile?
It costs the giver nothing, but is be
yond price to the erring and rcleuting,
the sad aud cheerless, the lost and
forsaken. It disarms malice, subdues
temper, turns hatred to Jove, revenge
to kindness, and paves the darkest
paths with gems of sunlight. A smi'o
on the brow betrays a kind heart, a
pleasant friend, an affectionate brother,
a dutiful son, a liappv husbrsud. It
adds a charm to beauty, it decorates
the face of the deformed, and makes a
lovely woman resemble au augel in

For examples: If our occupation is
sedentary, we need plans for walks,
rides, and active games to keep our
muscles lithe and serviceable. But
it our employment gives us enough
muscular action, it is not one with
less important to our health of body,
we should plan for' mental exercise
for employment enough of our mem
ory and reasoning powers to keep them
from rusting. And, in either "case,
that life must be a dwarfed and un
healthy one that does not provide ex
ercise for our spiritual faculties for
worship, and charity, and patience,
magnanimity. Exercise of soul, mind
aud body can alone bring as to the
