The river hemmed with leaning trees
Wound through its meadows green;
A low, blue line of mountains showed
The open pines between.
One sharp, tall peak nbovc them all
Clear into sunlight sprang;
I saw the river of my dreams,
The mountains that 1 sang!
No clew of memory led me on,
But well tha ways I knew;
A feeling of familiar things
With every footstep grew.
Not otherwise above its crag
Could lean the blasted pine ;
Not otherwise the maple hold
Aloft itrf red ensign.
So up the long and shorn foot-hills
The mountain roads should creep ;
8*6, green and low, the meadow fold
Its red-haired kind asleep.
The river wound as it should wind ;
Their place the mountains took,
The while, torn fringes of their clouds
Wore no unwonted look.
Yet ne'er before that river's rim
Was prcsssed by feet of mine,
Never before mine eye? had crossed
That broken mountain line.
A presence, strange nt once and known.
Walked wiih mo as my guide ;
The skirts of some forgotten life
Trailed noiseless at my side.
Was it a dim-remembered dream?
Or glimpse through ages old ?
The secret width the mountains kept,
The river never told.
Rut from the vision ere i* pa>^cd
A lender hone I drew,
And pleasant as a dawn of spring,
The thought v ilhin me grew.
That love would temper every change,
And soften all surprise,
Ami. ^dsty jv-jtlw?iej^ii^amt^if carlh?

A BEAUTIFUL PICTURE.
E. Y LDWAKI) EVER KIT.
As n work of art, I know few things
more pleasing to the eye, or more capa
ble of affording scope end gratification
to a taste for the beautiful, than a well
situated, well cultivated farm. The man
of refinement will hor.g with never-wea
ried gaze on a landscape by Cloud or
Sal valor; .the price of a section of the
most fertile hind in the West would not
purchase :i few square feet of the can
vas on which these great artists have de
picted a rural scene. But nature has
forms and proportions beyond the paint
er's skill; her divine pencil touches the
landscape with living lights and shadows,
never mingled on his pullet. V hat is
there on earth which can more entirely
charm the eye, or gratify the taste, than
a nohle farm? It stands upon the
Southern slope, gradually rising with
variegated ascent from the plain, shelt
ered from the north-western winds by
woody heights broken here and there
with mosstcovcrcd boulders, which im
part variety and strength to the outline.
The native forest has been cleared from
the greater part ot the farm, but a suit
able portion, carefully tended, remains
in wood for economical purposes, and to
give a picturesque oflect to the landscape.
The eye ranges round three-fourths of
the horizon over a fertile expanse?
bright with encerful waters, of a rippling
stream, a genet ous river, or a gleaming
lake;?dotted with hamlets, each with its
modest spire;?and if the farm lies in the
vicinity of the coast, a distant glimpse
from the high grounds, of the mysterious
everlasting sea, completes the prospect
It is situated off the high road, but near
enough to the village to be easily accessi
ble to the church, the school house post
office, the railroad a social friend or a
traveling friend. It consists in due pro
portion of pasture and tillage, meadow
and woodland field and garden. A sub
stantial dwelling, with everything for
convenience and nothing for ambitirn,
with the fitting appendages of stable and
barn, and corn barn, raid other tauy
buildings, not forgetting a spring house
with a living fountain of water, occupied
upon a gravelly .knoll a position well
chosen to command the whole estate. A.
(few acres on tho front, and on the sides
of the dwelling, set apart to gratify the
eye With choicer forms of rural . beauty,
aro adorned with a stately avenue with
noble solitary trees, with graceful clumps
shady Walks, a velvet lawn a brook
murmering over a pebbly bed, hero and
there a grand rock, whose cool shadow

The many thrilling incidents of the
early and venturesome life of Dr. Cookc,
the celebrated New York surgeon, whose
death occurred recently, give a decidedly
romantic coloring to his record, lie was
a great traveller in his younger years,
and visited all parts of.the werk' hi lb >?
locating himself in Albany, where he
obtained fame and wealth us proprietor
of a dispensary, Oh one of his voyage?
he acted as surgeon of* a British man-of
war, and while cruising off the Tonga
Island, he went ashore with twelve oJ
the crew to gather herns. The whole
party were captured by the cannibal
natives, bound and thrown into a cave to
he kept till morning. During the night
time the uniortuim'c victims heard the
yells oJ the savages, who wore preparing
fur the horrible feast of the morning. In
the morning they were brought .orth,
and after having been bound, thrown to
the ground and dragged throng the burn
ing sand, they were brought to piles of
wood for sacrifice. Each of the savages
marked with his finger upon the loins of
the trembling doctor the portion selected
for himself, and just before yielding him
self up, the eyes of the doctor and the
chief mot. By a spasmodic action of the
muscles Cookc gave a semi-Masonic sign,
which the chief answered, und, uttering a
cry of amazement, ordered the victims
set free. Dr. Cooko and his men stayed
upon the island, four days, and when
taking their departure were escorted to
the beach, where their boat lay, by a
procession of savages. It seems that
several years previous an English captain
was cast ashore there, ami, getting into
the good graces of the chief, gave him
I the first two degrees in Masonry.
Board of Visitors.
At the last meeting of the Local Board
of our Home a resolution was passed
requesting the two gentlemen in each
county who have been chosen on the
Board of Visitors to receive all applica
tions for the admission ol children from
their respective counties, and forward
such as they think proper subjects.
"NVe would suggest that a card in the
county papers making known the readi

A Smallpox Remedy.
Tho following statement of a corres^
pondent of tho-'?tockton (Cal.) Herald
has been going-the rounds of the papers.
An ex-Califorfiian says he has wen it
tested with entire success. We repro
duce it therefore for what it is worth :
I herewith append a recipe which has
been used to uVy knowledge in hundreds
of cases. I t ^ill prevent or cure the
smallpox though the pitting arc filling.

land, the world of science hurled an ava
lanche e f famef upon his head ; but when
the most scieniifie school of medicine in
the world?thju of Paris?published this
receipt as a panacea for sinallpox, it
passed uilhectjed, It is as unfailing as
fate, and conquers in every instance. It
is harmless when taken by a well person.
It will also cure scarlet fever. Here is
tho recipe as I have used it, and cured
my children o? the scarlet fever; here it
is as I have used it to euro, smallpox.
Whcu lranu^ physicians said the pa
tient must dic.it cured: Sulphate z\uC,
end grain; foxglove, ((tigiitalis) one!
grain ; half i*tenspoonful of sugar, mix
with two tahle'poonsful of water. When
thoroughly mixed add four ounces, of
water. Take a spoonfcl every hour.
Either disease will disappear in twelve
hours. For ; child smaller doses accord
ing to age. If counties would compel
their physicians to use this there would
be no need of pest-houses. If you value
advice and experience, use this for that
terrible disen: e.

Idleness v.is a criminal offence at
Athens, and sfiould be so regarded every
where since "drones suck not the blood..ui'
eagles, hut i'-b beehives." Plutarch iu
'the *nt*c of *rycu felis1 tett? of.' chis.--ic
loafer," who was one day fined for this
? [fence, hut was greatly condoled by a
brother idler as having been condemcd
for keeping up his dignity.
Rather do what is nothing to the pur
pose than be idle, that the devil may
find thee at nothing. The bird that sits is
easily shot, when flyers eseapa the fowler.
Idleness is the dead, dead sea that swal
lows all the virtues, and the self-made
sepulchre of a living man.
We pity any man who has nothing to
do, for idleness is the mother of more
misery and crime than all other causes
ever thought or dreamed of by the pro
foundest thinker or the wisest theorist.,
"Pro) of wb .t did your brother die?"
said the Marquis Spinoln one day to Sir
Horace Vere. He answered, "Hedied,
Sir, of having nothing to do." "Ala.1!''
said Spinoln, "that is enough to kill any
general of ur.
Laziness grows on people ; it begins in
cobwebs, ami ends in iron chains. The
more business a man has to do the more
he is able to accomplish ; for lu* learns to
economize his time. In a workhouse at
Hamburg idlers are punished by being
suspended in a basket above the tables
so that they can see and smell the things
provided for the industrials, hut arc not
allowed to taste them. Idleness is a con
stant sin, and labor is a duty. Idleness
is the devil's home for temptation, and
lor unprofitable, distracting musings,
while labor profitcth others than our
There arc hundreds that want energy
for fine that wants ambition, and sloth
has prevcited as many vices in some
minds as virtue has in others. Idleness
is the grand pacific ocean of life, and in
that stagnant abyss the most salutary
things produce no good, the most noxious
no evil. The son bred in sloth becomes
a spendthrift profligate, and goes out to
the world a beggra.
No pains?no gains. No sweet. No
mill, no meal. An idle brain is the devil's
workshop. Indolence is a stream which
flows slowly oil, but yet Undermines the
foundation o* overy virtue He is not
only idle who does nothing but to hide
who might bo bettor employed. Much
bending bicaks the bow?much unbend
ing the mind. Wo have more indolence
in the mind than in the body. Indolence
is the paralysis of tho soul.
Look happy if you do not feel so.
Present a cheerful exterior, though^rour
heart and mind be troubled. Never
wear a face which, as Sidaey Smith, says
''is a breach of the peace." Dr.-Johnson
used toNob*H2rvc that the habit of looking
at the best of a thing was worth more to
u man than a thousand pounds a year,
and Samuel Smiles observes:
"We possess the power, to i great ex
tent, fif so exercising the will as to direct
the thoughts calculated to yield happi
ness and improvement rather than their
opposite. In this way the habit of happy
thought may bo made to spring in
like any other habit. And to bring up
men or women with a genuine nature of
this sort, a good temper and a happy
frame of mind is, perhaps, of even more
imprortance, in many cases, than to per
fect them in much knowledge and many
making People Happy.
A poetical writer has said that some men
?.'ovo through life as a band of music
moves uVvn tho street, flinging pleasure
on every side ttuPUgh the air to every
one, far ami near, that c^" listen. Some
men till the air with their streb,-;*? an(l
Hweetucss, as the orchards in October
days fill the.fcir with ripe fruit. Some
women cling to their own houses like the
honeysuckle over the door; yet, like it,
fill all tho region with the subtle fra
grance of their goodness. How great a
bounty and blcssiug is it so to hold the
roynl gii.s of the soul that they shall be
music [o some,fragrance toothers and joy
to all. It would be no unworthy thing
to live for, to make the power which we
have within us the breath of other men's
joy; to fill the atmosphere which they
must stand in with u brightness which
they cannot create for then.selves.
Consternation in Utah.
;Tr>c tribulation among the Mormon
leaders, iu view of the probability of
decisive Congressional action against
their institution, is becoming daily more
manifest. Already a removal from Utah
is discussed. One of their organs to-day
says that, the strong arm of power is to
be invoked to make them move on, but
where shall they go? Where is it desired
I that they shall next pitch their tents?
I The priesthood is understood to be
seriously contemplating the possible
necessity of another pioneer expedition,
but it is hot generally believed the saints
us a body can ever be induced to aband-1
on their present homes. There is no
doubt that Brighnm Young and his ad
visers are endeavoring to secure a new
c uintry for a kingdom, and it is intimated
that negotiations have been renewed for
the exclusive possession of one of the
An Infamous Organization.?We
learn thnt thcto exists in the Legislature
a regular organized band of stragglers? I
members of one or both houses?who
have united themselves together for the
purpose whenever possible, of making
money out of every bill that may be in
troduced in the house or Senate?. Thvsc
plunderers meet wc arc informed and de
liberately discuss measures and lay their
plans in order to set the price upon such
legislation as they may have it in their
power to pass or to defeat. This reveals
a pretty state of affairs.

Cotton Manufacturing in the South.
I If thero is anything needed to convince
the sceptical that cotton manufacturing
in the South is a gold mine for those en
gaged in it' the report of the Eagle and
Phoenix Company, of Columbus, at the
annual meeting of stockholders will be
sufficient. The roport states that the net
earning? or profit of tho company for the
past year amounts to $181,406 01. The
undivided profits of the Company amount
to $'297,706 92 or twenty-four per cent of
tho capital stock. According to this
statement the stockholders, when the
profits or* finally divided, will have re
ceived back almost their entire invest
ment. It is a wonderful record, and
ought to stimulate the rapid growth of
similarcutcrprise everywhere in the South.

is far from being a misnomer.
This doctor has a student, who attends
within, while tbo doctor is out. Among
the fixtures of tho office ia a wired skele
ton bo hung and adjusted that it will walk
out of the cupboard where it is kept and
go thronh sereral grotesque antics.
One day- a youthtul peddler with a basket/
of knicknacs presented himself. When
told that nothing in his line was wanted'
the little-rascal began to "talk back" iu
a most impudent manner, and was finally
ordered to leave the office.
This he refnsed to do, and thinking to*
scare him tho student pulled a string and
open flew tho door where the skeleton'

half out of his wits, dropped his basket

red a subject on a cold winter's night,
and having dressed it, placed it sitting
upright on tho scat of a covered wagon
and started home. Coming to a tavern
and seeing the bar-room lighted np, they

receiving no answer, he discovered how
the affair stood, and instantly resolved to
have a little fun of his own on this oc

their scats by the side of the supposed
dead man, When one of them remarked
tremulously to his companion : 'He is

There is a wheat field on the west side
of the San Jonquin river, California, 35
miles in length by eight iu breath, with
an area of 179,000 acres. Estimating
the average yield at sixteen bushels to
the aero, it would give a total yeild of
2.8G4.200 bushels, or 00,015 tons. This
amount of grain would load 8,601 cars,
which, if made up in one train, would
reach for over eighty miles.
No matter how humble the abode, if
it be garnished with sweetness, with
kindness and smiles, tho heart will turn
laughingly toward it from all the tu

ever so homely, will be the dearest spot
