BY MISS Z. It. C.
Pale ofipring of the waning year,
Thou lookest up with tender eye,
To you darkly threatening sky,
IHow caist thou meet the tempest near ?
Unmindful of the sleet and rain,
And heedles of the driving snow
Or icy winds that harshly blow,
Thou purest 'bove the barren plain.
Tile oak uplifts its leafless boughs.
The clouds are dark with winter's rage,
And shrieking storms a warfare wage,
Around the hiliock's furrowed brow.
There is no flower in yonder vale,
To cheer the gaze ot passer-by,
No tender bloom to breathe its sigh
Upon the moaning, wintry gale.
Thy sweet companions are all gone- t
When autumn winds blow harsh and
bleak,
Then tinted flow'rets, fair and meek,
In frosty dews grew pale and wan.
Like our loved ones, the fair and frail,
That give their charms to lingeriug
death.
So at the winter's blighting breath,
The flowers died in forest dale.
There is no sound of warble clear,
Fromu tuneful birds. in yonder wood .
Thero's naught to cheer thy solitude,
Iid scenes so wild and coldly drear. i
lut 'midst the wreck of winter's blight,
Thy snlowy blossom's as sweet, as fair,
As luring dreamss traced in the air
By fairy Hope, mid mis'ry's night.
What wonder then, we hold thee dear,
Lone blossom of the',gardcn walks; t
Thy swaying bells ring on their stalks r
A welcome to the coming year.
'he coming year! God grant it hold t
in its nufathomed, dark abyss t
Fruition of more perfect bliss
rhan e'en our wishes dare unfold.
:od grant alike to friend and foe, f
That it may bring the branch of peace, t
To sorrow's tearsa long surcease, ii
nd turn to joy, da k sullen woe. t
Chat it may herald in the day,
The promise of that fairer time t
When earth shall bask in golden clime, t
nd righteousness extend her sway. b
WVhen plagues shall be no longer felt, i
And hatred's boast but idle breath, 1
When "victory shall conquer death," e
nd earth be free again from guilt. s
WEST IFELICIANA, LA., Jan. 1, '79D. e
i-The Governor of Iowa pardoned a
nan who had been sentenced to the State
risdn for ten years, on tle conditions a
hat he should, during the remainder of it
f his term, abstain from the use of in- :
oXicating liquors as a beverage; that he ,
bould exert himself for the support of s
is mother and sister; and that he should
lot be convicted of crime during the
0rm of the sentence of any violation of
ruminal law. The criminal agreed to
he conditions of the pardon. and found
o inconvenience in complying with the i
ast two articles thereof, but the demon t
f intemporance was too strongly the c
aster of his appetite for him to long I
ajoy his freedom. After a short respite
rom confinement he waIl found inebriatd
d, whereupon the Governor remanded at
im to the State prison. The validity of tt
he action of the Executive was ques- w
oned, but a decision of the Supreme pr
ourt confirmed his action in the prenl- w
s5. lii
The last Legislature, in preparing the
late proposed amendments to the presentr
abominable State Constitution, made it.
obligatory upon the Secretary of State to
cause these suggested patches to be pub
lished aiwet!l days in one or more papers inl
each parish in the State.
In accordance with, and in obrdieru:e
to this law, Mr. Strong authorized forty
nine papers in the State to insert these
amendments. To defray the expenses
thus incurred, the last Legislature made
an appropriation of $~000. The amount,
due by law to each ot the forty-nine pa
pers for the publication of these propos
ed amendments for the specifiec<_ length of
"fi aitiarjt ea;,-uT $344. This amount
multiplied by forty-nine would make
$16,856, leaving a deficiency in the above
named appropriation of some $11,856.
In these proposed amendments, accord
ing to the measurement of the N. O.
Democrat, the official organ of the State
there are forty-three squares, which, in
serted fifteen times at one dollar for the
first insertion of each square, and fifty
cents for the remaining fourteen inser
tians of the forty-three squares, would
make exactly $341 duoe each paper.
When the $5000 already appropriated
by tne Legislature is divided pro rata be
tween the forry-nine papers, each paper
will receive, in what are termed ordinary
warrants, about $102. These warrants
to-day are worth from thirty-fire toforty
cents on the dollar. Consequently, for $344
worth of work, the poor printer will re
ceive only about $10 in actual cash.
Will the incoming Legislature look in
to thle matter, and see that the lnewspa
per publisher is paid for the labor he has
performed ?-l'atriot-Democrat.
O-'A weilknown financial writer, says
the N. 0. Democrat, has ,just published in
the Financial Chronicle, of New York, a i
letter on the condition of financial af
fairs in England and Europo generally.
Hie reaches the following conclusion:
That actual, real money only includes
moetalic money ; that silver has been de
monetized in Europe, and ranks now as a
representative of money; that from 1848
to 1873 the real money of the world was
increased 40 per cent, or from $5,00u,000,
000 t- $7.000.00U,000, creating the unex
amipled period of growth of the world's
productions and trade; that since 1873,
by the dlemonetization of silver and the
contraction of the real money of the
world, money is proportionately scarce.
As money has become dearer as it hlas
been decreased in volume, it follows that
the value of all commodities and proper
ty has decreased. The business of the
world has been contracted and crippled
just as it was stimulated by the increase
of money between 1848 and 1873. He
conhcludeu that as thle contraction of trade'
of production, of prices and of prosperity'
is due to the contraction in the world's
money, so the natural, direct remedy is
the restoration of the supply of money by
the remonetization ofsilver generally, in
Europe. 'These are the views of an able
man, who a year ago was one of the stron
gest opponents of silver remonetization
in this country He has recognized the
logic of events. Germany and England
must also recognize this irresistablo logic
and restore silver to its old place as a
part of the world's imoney. And as the
United States are producers of silver,
they should be the last nation on earth
to depreciate the value of the precious
metal.
TilE EXPosITioN OF 1876.-Wandering
through the United states section of this
truly wonderful Exhibition, hyperorna
mented and over-displayed as the most of
it is, I came upon an elegant glass case,
whose modesty was the more conspicuous
from its neighbor's finery, surmounuted by
tihe motto Dignias 'raentia and displaying.
in neat packages, the medical prepara
tions of the house of Dr. J. C. Ayor & Co.,
Lowell. Mass.:
I was aware of the world-wide reputa
tion of this eminent firm, for the charac
ter and quality of their goods and remem
bet- well their agent in London, Messrs.
Newberry, in St. Eul's Churchyard.
Having a liesure hour, I determined to
examine tLe contents of this case, my
s61f, and I was surprised to see the deli- a
cate perfectior to which they have a
brought their household remedies. I
was chagrined at the reflection that, t
while we have at home the most skilful g
and, pro-eminently, the best physicians d
in the world, these Yankee doctors dis
tance us so far in the line of popular
medicines for family use. They have tihe
sharpness to take advantage of the high b
scientifio discoveries among us and make a
pills and potions as palatable as they are a
salutary. I was told by a leading drug
gist in Philadelphia, that Dr. Ayer's man
factory was thie largest in America, giv- II
iug employment to hur.dreds. I must go ti
bo Lowell and see it on my way home.

A CALIFORNIA MNINGV STORY.
Not many miles from Shasta City is the
t* gulch,. of which the following mining sto
t ry is told: It is a pretty deep ravine,
3 with rocks ihowing all the way up the
- sides. Gold in payilg qaultities had
been found along the stream, but it seem
ed to disappear a few feet from the chan
nel. One day, while a gang of bussy
- men were toiling in the stream, a stranger
e evidently green at miniig, came .along
and leaned on ragged elbows to watch,
with protruding eyes, the results of their
toil. The miner nearest him took out a
$5 nugget. and anxiety overcame the
green -horn. ' S-a-a-y," he asked, '*where
cIn I go to diggin' to find it like that f"
The hardy iiiier stoppeld is work, and
giving the wink to all the boys, so that
the joke should not be los., pointed up on
the barren rocks whero no gold had over
been found. " Ye see that rough lookin'
place r" Yes, yes," said the new band.
',Well, thar it is rich. Jes ye stake out
a claim, and go ter work, and when we
finish here we'll come up too." Then the
new hand thankel the honest miner, and i
boys all grinned appreciation of the 1
joke. That afternoon there was a solita
ry figure picking away on the slope, and
every tinme the miniers looked up they
roared with laughter. But about the
next day the greenhorn struck a pocket,
and took out something like $30,000 in a
few minutes. Then, innocent to the last, t
he treated all round, and thanked the r
miner who sent him up there, and took t
his money and went down into the valley c
and bought a farm. Then the unhappy t
miners aroso, leaving their old claims e
and dotted that hill-side for days. But c
theme were no more pockets anywhere. 8

TO CURLE AlIMS ORl OTHER MBIEAT.
From an excellent lady resident of tiis
Parish we have received the following
very valuable recipe for curing hams
and other meat, which we putblish for the
benefit of those who have been so provi
dent as to remove their meat houses from
the far west to their own domain. We
advise all our farmer friends to cut it out
and file it away for future refeference:
"First see that the hams are dht smooth
at the fleshy part-leaving the cross-bone
.in. To each ham take one half of i tea
spoonful of powdered saltpetre, and,
when cold, rub well on the tlishy parts
and in the crevices with the hand. Next
take slt and brown sugar, four parts of
the first and one or the latter; mix rnd
rub well over the hams or other micat
you may wish to save. Lay ileat in a nlo
lasses barrel, with three hams in the bot.
tom and halfjowls around; and taungue
in the middle. Sprinkle the salt and su
gar between each layer until the barrel is
full. Put a weight on top to press the
meat down; make a hole in the bottomu
of the barrel to let the brine drip out,
but also put a tub under the barrel to
catch this brine. Let it stand three days
after which, put this brine on the fire
and let it come almost to a boil, but not
quite; push away the fire f:om the pot
and drop in a cup of cold water, which
will cause the blood and other impurities
to rise to the top. Skim off the top, and
repeat in the same way. ]Boil this the
third time, adding salt a.d water suffi
cient to make enough brine to cover all
your meat. This brine should be strong
enough to float an egg. When perfectly
cold, put your meat in it with weight
sufficient to keep it under. Let it re
main from four to six weeks. Then wash
the salt off with brine and wipe the meat
dry: rub it over with molasses and black
pepper-proportion : one quartl of molas
ses to one fourth of a pound of pepper.
Hang up and smoke, the hams hock
downward. Smoke for six weeks, after
which, take it down on a dry day and a
cover the hams with cloth and white- l
wash them, provided they are ready be
tore March. If, however, they are not
smoked sufficiently before March, dip each t
ham in boiling water and wipe perfectly I
dry before cauvassaing.
P. S.- Red pepper can be used instead
of black." L. J. B.

irThe late deathot the Princes Alice,
third daughter of Quee.n Victoria, who
died at Darmstadt in Germany, has
caused sincere regret and genuine sym
pathy for the queen-mother throughout
Eugland. Princess Alice, in her girl
hood. was the loveliest and best beloved c
of all Victoria's daughters. She was
early married to Prince Ludwig of Hesse t
and was the mother of seven children,
one of whom was killed while a baby, C
by a fall from a window, and another, a C
little girl, died with dipthcria just be- 1
fore the death of her mother. Indeed, it
was while nursing little Marie, that r'
Princess Alice contracted the disease n
that ended her life. She was eminently Y
domestic and tender in her nature, and
made society and fashion subservient to t]
the claims of home. She was the best 11
loved sister of the Prince of Wales, andl
during that terrible illuess when his life
hung upon a straw, she and his will, the t
Princes Alexandria, watched night and C
day at his bedside, scarcely leaving himn
for one half honur.-Siuuy! South.
