S.C.-Dear Sir: Since my daughter took:
tiie first "dose of your medicine you sent ber ;
she has not had one fit. Before that she used j
to have them every day, at least one, and as ;
many as two, three, six and nine a day, for j

TEE LABOSIIsG MAN
-o
Blest be the lab'ring man,
Who works with ready hand.
Content to so'-v, tc reap, and mow,
And plough the barren land j
To fertilize the plain.
Ar.d make th' desert bloom
To plant the golden wheat and rye.
"Where erst was swampy gloom :
Thro' joy and sorrow here, in life's short
span,
.My prayer shall be, God ke^p the lab-ring
man ;
Blest bc his rough, bard hands,
Embrowned with toil!
I love them, for they till
My country's soil !
Blest be his brave true heart,
Though silken vest,
And chains of jewelled gold
Fold not his breast !
Thr foremost form in liberty's proud van,
Earnest and true. God bless the lab'ring
j man !
Let soft-brained dandies sneer,
And rouge-daubed misses scorn
Shame! that in our fair land
Such dastards should be born !
Go on in hollow deeds,
Worse than a senseless void,
Thc laboring man's a glorious sun
And thou, aa asteroid !
Sweat, laborer, if thou wilt, angels' coral
wings shall fan
Thy heated brow and parched lips. God
bless the lab'ring mau !
The brave, strong sons of truth,
Defenders of the frail.
Ci: let their noble deeds be borne
Abroad by every gale.
Their faith and trust jr. Heaven,
Their standards raised on high,
Until the jicrgeous upper folds
Arc lost in ether sky !
Through joy and sorrow here, in lice's short
span, ' .
My prayer shall be, God bless the lab'ring
man !

"That's all," said the tired girl let?
ting her pencil drop, and breathing a
sigh of relief.
''I hope she will pay to-night," mur?
mured Mrs. Stetson
"She is well aware of our needs,"
was the sad reply. Af. the same time
slie carried her old habits ot soring
into her new life, for she knows I
shall not charge one-half thc price
that a regular dressmaker v?oidd.
Site would iiave to pay Mme. JolifJe
?100 at the least.77
"Well, its a shame," replied lier
mother, " that you can't get the reg?
ular price when you do your work as
well. Time was when your father
could have bought and sold Walter
Hayden, and now yen must work
your fingers off for his daughter, who
has neither your education, nor-77
'.Oh, don't mamma!''' pleaded Lau?

For poor, proud Laura, earning a
scanty living for her mother and her?
self, had a memory of the Haydens
hidden in her heart.
When Bart Hayden had gone array,
only a year before, she had thought
of him for months aller, nay, even till
now, with quickened pulse and height?
ened color. Tito Haydens were not
! wealthy then ; but within a short
time they had come into a fortune,
and i: was rumored that young Bart 1
was also growing rich through lucky
speculation.
It was just niue months since the
death of Laura's father. He had drop?
ped down suddenly, while apparently
in tho full enjoyment of health : and ;
after the funeral it was found that his 1
affairs were in a very tangled condi?
tion. In fact, only a small house was 1
left, to the widow, through theconsid- \
oration of creditors, and that far /rom ]
comfortably furnished.
Laura, the child of wealth and fa?":- 1
ion, her father's idol, a delicate. :
thoroughbred, elegant girl, who had :
haretofore sunned herself in the warm 1
rays ci'prosperity, and hardly knew ]
whether she hud a heart or nu!, proved 1
herself a heroine. Whatever she
could find to do, she worked at with 1
all her heart. Plain sewing, embroid?
ery, dressmaking, for which she had
a talent, and concerning which she
had often laughingly said that if she 1
had not been rich she might have '
been famous, everything was under- '
taken willingly. She accepted the .
situai ion, though not without some '
struggles with pride and matty secret 1
tears. Mrs. Stetson thought of the '
time when a carriage was at the call 1
other beautiful darling.
"Dear, can't ] take it ?" she asked .
gazing at her anxiously. "You look f
ill.77
"I am iii-that is, my head ache's ;
but tiie walk will do mc good/' Laura ? 1
responded, trying to look bright. "Do
you think ? would let you carry home j
my work? No, indeed!''7 and she '
bent (.vcr and kissed her mother's '
forehead.
Out in the open air she felt belter.
Tho previous depression from which (
sin.- suffered gradually left her, and she
bc,'.!;;r interested in til" sight s and 1
sounds ab<>uf her. :*omo ci' her for j 1
mer aeonaintanc :s passed her, u few '

and passed bravely on. Turning a
corner she came lull upon au unex?
pected tablea u. A smartly dressed '
boy, with foal her in his cap, kicked ,
and struggled with his nurse, who 1
vainly palled tin) obstinaie child till 1
her face was purple.
"Why, Lucy! Why, Benny !7; ex-j

"'Deed.. Miss, lie's awful," said tl
girl, nearly crying. "When lie malo

Laura spoke a few words to the ho

"We're all at sixes and sevens,

Ile fell back a little. Strange how
the light went out of his face. .

fused way ; there might have been r
little anger in the voice, "but-yes.
perhaps you had better go up," anc
he turned on his heel.
"ile didn't like to speak of his wife,
and no wonder," half sobbed Laura tc
herself.
"What in the deuce makes her act
so coldly ?" muttered young Hayden;
then in a tenderer voice, "poor little
thing ! it's pride, I suppose ; but she
might have seemed just the least bit
glad to see me, I think," and then he
kicked a box out of his path, and
went moodily to the door.
Anne Hayden was alone.
"?o glad you brought it," she
cried; "and oil ! doesn't it look beau?
tiful ?" and she shook out the creamy
satin with exclamations of delight.
"Sit down, won't you ? I've so

"I'll run round, perhaps. Must you

Laura had not worn brr veil. The

Com?is seen from BaHoons.
Recently a paper by M. W. deFon
vielle was read before the Balloon So?
ciety, in which the author described
the appearance of comet "b,"1831, as
seen by him at midnight, from the
car of a balloon. Thc brilliancy of
the light which Che comet showed
when the balloon reached a height of
more than one thousand metres, in
Creased in a very large proportion,
notwithstanding the transparency of
the atmosphere. So far as could be
judged of similar changes without
the assistance of optical instruments,
it seemed that thc brilliancy had in?
creased about half beyond its normal
brilliancy as seen from the earth.
The tail was a little longer than seen
from the earth, but most remarkable
was the manner in which it terminat?
ed, for it was cut oil* straight, as if a
line were drawn over it horizontally
with a ruler. This singular circum
stance made M. de Fonvielle think
that the phenomenon might be termi?
nated by a fleecy cloud. The appear?
ance of the tail was as if produced by
legions of large stones traveling in
the planetary space independently
of the comet and having no other
connection with it than that ol being
temporarily lighted by the rays
which its atmosphere had caused to
deviate, more or less, from their natu?
ral route. These myriads of rem?
nants of worlds would therefore pro?
duce thc same ciYoet as dust lighted
hy a ray of sun admitted into a dark
room through a'crevicc. M. dc Fon
ville dwelt upon this theory at some
length, and insisted that it was to
this causo that the zodiacal l??rhfc was
in all probability to be attributed,
lie also insisted that astronomical in?
vestigations should include balloon?

Under thc head of "Religion of the
Presidents" 1 see it slated in your ex?
cellent paper that Ge lierai Jackson
was a Methodist. Ile, doubtless, at?
tended thc Methodist church occa?
sionally. But his mother was a Pres
by terian, and Jackson was carefullv
trained in thc Shorter Catechism and 1
the five points of the Presbyterian j
faith. In old age he joined the Pres- |
byterian church in Nashville, Tenn, j
The records of the church will show j
the date. One of his brothers was ;
taken prisoner in 1TS0, during
Lord Cornwallis's Triumphant march ;
through South Carolina, and thrown j
into prison in Chai lesion. Mrs. Jack- !
s*m rode on horseback from Lancaster j
to Charleston, a distance of nearly j
200 miles, to see her son. On her j
return, when about fifty miles from j
Charleston, she was taken with fever
and died. After this sad event young |
Andrew lived in thc family of Major j
Robert Crawford,_ whoso wife was;
Jackson's aunt. Major Crawford was j
his guardian. Jackson's mother was j
Miss White. The Crawfords, Jack- j
sons, Whiles and Dunlaps all came j
from the North of Ire! ?nd, and settled j
in what was then and is now known ?
as the Waxhaw Settlement, in Lan- ;
caster Con ty, S. C. They were all j
inveterate Whigs during the R?volu- i
tion. After the war young Jackson j
began to b-arn the saddlery trade j
under his uncle Moses White, inc !
brother of his mother. Ile had not 1
been long at it whee jie suddenly j
dashed aside his tools and declared I
that he was born fora higher destiny. ;
Jie then went to Salisbury, N. C , '?
lo reside with a Mr. Crawford, father,
of W. II. Crawford, formerly member !
of Congress. lie studied law with ?
a Mr. Crawford, and afterward moved j
to Tennessee, lt has been said that ?
Jackson was boru in North Carolina. ;
But this is a mistake. Ile was born j
in South Carolina, only a short dis- !
tance from the dividing line between j
the .two States. General Jackson ?
never forgot his old friends and kins- j
people in South Carolina, and he often !
expressed a wish to revisit the scenes ;
of his childhood. When President ;
he wrote to his first cousin, Mrs. j
Mary Dunlap, of Lancaster, S. C., j
tlie daughter of his uncle, Robert j
Crawford, and sent her a handsome
silver-lined snuff-boz, as a souvenir!
of their young days when they were j
schoolmates. The snuffbox is now j
the property of Mrs. Sims, wife of i
Dr. J. Marion Sims, of New York. !
Mrs. Sims-is tue great granddaughter j
of Robert Crawford, the uncle of Gen-;
eral Jackson. When Jackson started ?
in life his guardian gave hine his pat- j
rimony, which at that day was no !
mean sum. In conclusion, I mav sav !
my mother named }*our informant for j
her cousin, Andrew Jackson. When ;
President, General Jackson often j
sent him presents, and after he re?
tired to thc --Hermitage" he sent him !
an invitation to make him a visit, as i
he v, -*s!ied to see a descendant of his
favorite cousin, Sarah Crawford. The
death of General .Jackson m'cvcnted
the intended visit.

To the Editor .of the N<: ic York Timex: J
The foregoing Jacksonian, comma- ?
ideation I clipped from the New Or-j
leans Times a few days ago. It was j
written by my kinsman, the Rev. An- j
drew Jackson Witherspoon, who is j
pastor of the Seaman's Bethel in I
New Oilcans. ? send it to you be- j
cause the smallest items pertaining !
tu the great men of thc past are !
always interesting to us. Mr. With-1
erspoon's statement fri regard to thc !
snuff box induces me to say a word j
about it. When the secession ordi- j
nance was passed by South Carolina \
(fifty years ago) Jackson was Presi-.
dent, and he wrote an autograph i
letter lo Mrs. Dunlap (nco Mary ?
Crawford, thc playmate and sweet- j
heart of his boyhood,) reminding her ;
of his affectionate regards for her and j
his kinspcople in South Carolina, j
And he denounced tu strong terms \
the heresy of his native State, and j
said as President he would be obliged j
to send a military force into South i
Carolina to execute the laws of tho!
Government if the ordinance of nut- !
lificati?n should be put to the lest. ;
Ile then warned Mrs. Dunlap if her ?
sous should be found in the ranks bf j
the country':- onere;-. - he wou'd bei
compelled to deai with them without:
regard to personal feelings. And he 1
sent her, a snuffbox as a souvenir of;
his kindly rem .'.rn bronce. The snuff;
box is a pea-sheii. (tortois) oval, 3 i
indies long by - ? 1 inches diameter. ;
On the outside of ihe lid is the' Amuri- ;
can eagle; just over its head "Jan. j
S, 1S15,?? and above this "U. S. F. j
brandywine, 1S28." On the inside
of ;he lid is inscribed, "To A. .lack-;
son, from D. M. Stokes." Por thc j
last seven or eight years I have been :
trying to get hold of ihe letter writ- ;
ten by President Jackson lo Mrs. j
Dunlap. As it is not in thc posses-:
sion of any of his immediate descend- ;
[inls, I presume that lier two sons who j
were violent Nullifiers, must have
lorn it to pieces as soon as they read it.
Previous to the days of nullification
General Jackson had some corres-:
pon dence with Colonel Witherspoon :
and others, of Lancaster, on the sub
feet o?'his r.. v isiting lu's native State.
Hut after that time the bitterness of
>arty spirit was such that no one
hired to renew the subject.

Caught in His Gv?u Trap.
A story-quite as good for bei og
I true-is told of two medical students,
the one a very large and tbc other a
very small person, who were room?
mates and bed-fellows. On a certain
warm night the L?:ir man, who was on
thc inner side, awoke to thc conscious?
ness that he was being crowded to the
wal!, his companion having taken a
good sized reservation in the middle of
thc bed. By way of punishing tbe en?
croachment with neatness and dispatch,
he gently adjusted his soles and ousted
the little fellow so effectually as to land
him on thc carpet. Thc ejected one
showed no sign of resentment until sev?
eral nights later, when Dinding his
bulky comrade occupying a position sitn
iliar to the one ic which he had given
offense, he plotted a revenge. Stealthily
clambering over thc hugh form, he
braced his back against the wall and
plaoting a foot on either side of his
friend's spine, collected all his force,
gave a tremendous push. The effect
was instantaneous, and if not just what
had been anticipated, was certainly, iu
strict accordance with nature's laws.
The big man moved, but the bed moved
with him, opening a wide space between
itself and the wall, through which the
little man immediately dropped to the
Soor, where he doubtless had a chance
to recover from his astonishment and
reflect on the reasons why another good
plau had gone wrong.
