When you sujf ?es: a reply to these, 1 am sure jou can (hare no conception of the subdued and i-iii _rntt-n. -\ ttate of mv mind. I am bent on improvement. Laying aside all my old notions of my beliefs and of ray sUnding, I am carefully put ting together the real man that I am vow tauvht I am. When I get my new perional identity to gether, and in working thai c, I intend to study theology somewhere, though in my present confu sion I cannot ytt see whether I shall study at And<> er or Boston. >ew Haven is nearer, but Ur. SmUhe has been settled there, and I fear the laxity of doctrine in his r.eiKhborhood. Princeton is not far south of me, hut Dr. McCosh is a Christian evolutionist, and it would be folly, after what 1 have suffered, to come undtr the malarial ii.fluince of that phi'osopher. On the whole, I incline to study at l'irk street, but wherever I may jjo I am de termined, before I die, to find a theOlojy which will pass muster at Bancor, at Andovtr, at Cambridge, at New lin.i, at Princeton, at A'leifhany, at oberlin, at Chicago and at Park street. Then I shall willingly die. Vourp, HENRY WARD BEECHER. The «.■.■..! Army Kiflc Content.

The common idea that Benton first sue gested a railroad scross the continent to the Paciiic was shown to be a fallacy by ex- Senator Armstrong at a recent meeting of the Historical Society in this city. As a matter of fact, tbe records prove' that he opposed such a project, even after it had gone so far as the calling of a Con vention at St. Louis. It was arranged that Stephen A. Djugias should preside over Baid Convention, and Benton did all he could to embarrass the proceedings until it became evident that the Convention was going to recommend a line by the way of Albuquerque — since practically adopted by the Atchison, Topeka and Santa Fe road— when he suddenly changed hid views and made a vigorous speech in favor of the Sonth Pass route, which he argued to be the most natural and most feasible route, a3 demonstrated by the pathway of the buffalo, and by tbe ex plorations of Colonel Fremont. The credit of the first Beriou*} proposi tion for a railroad to the Pacific really be longs to Asa Whitnej, a New York mer chant, whose name is rarely mentioned in connection with the matter. He was at one time worth about -*700,000, but the great New York tire of 1835 destroyed nearly all his possessions, and soon after wards he went to China as a supercargo, and then to Kngland and otiier parts of Europe. During this journey he made a systematic study of the pr.-i'.lem of trans portation and the commercial relations of the United States to Chiaa, India, the islands of the ocean and tbe various Euro pean countries ; and it was while returning home across the Atlantic that ho evolved the scheme of a great national railway from Like Michigan to the Pacific, which he had convinced himself was the comprehensive expedient that would enable his country to avail itself of its manifest advantages, aud secure a vast and enriching foreign trade, while at the same time developing its own resources and promoting the general wel fare. Sa profoundly was Whitney impressed by this far-reaching conception that he went promptly to work at giviDg it practi cal shape, spending both time and money in efforts to justify his theory and enlut public sympathy with it. At his own ex pense he mado a survey of some 700 miles of proposed route, crossing the Mississippi near l'rairie dv Chien and penetraiing a considerable distance westward, and also descending the Missouri in canoe, to study the topography of the country. Then he prepared a memorial to Congress, praying that a erant of land 00 miles ia width, from Lake .Michigan to the Pacific, be made aad the eale thereof suthorizsrl, through commissioners appointed l>y the President, to furnish the means for constructing a railroad through said territory on the lati tude of the South Pass. No bonds were askud for, and no guarantees of interest. The sale of the lands alone, it was urged, would meet the whole outlay, estimated at $.50,000,000, with probibly si.), 000 ,000 more to operate the road until it should reach a eelf-Eustaining basis. The meuiorial went on to show, by a strong array of figures and inferences, that the construction of such a road would bring to our doors the commerce of 700, --000,000 people, worth at least §10,000, --000 a year, otherwise out ot reach by reason of circuitous sea voyages and other natural hindrances. An argument, since grown familiar as the multiplication table— to the effect that the building of the road would attract immi gration and make a market for the lands was dwelt upon at some length, with the added suggestion that the settlers could pay a full share of the price of their farms by working on the road. The other argu ment, and the one which finally insured a Pacitic railroad, was also employed, to wit : the political important of such a medium of communication between widfily-sepa rated portions of the country. Tee trip from coast to coast, then requiring six I months, could be shortened, aa the memo rial pointed out, to eight Jays, as has since been verified. A cargo of tea from China, it proceeded, may then be delivered in any of our Atlantic cities in thirty days, and in London or Liverpool in less th?n forty rive <l»yp. Aud finally, Mr. Whitney in sisted, the road must revolutioniza the en tire commerce of the world, placing us in the center of all nations, and be the msans, morally, of civilizing and Christian izing all mankind. In the lifcht of things now accomplished,' Mr. W hitney's madness does not appear so very unmethodical ; but we may be Bure that when his memorial was read in the Senate— in 1545, that was— the statesmen of the period listened with little other than an amused interest, with possibly a touch of pity for the dizzy enthusiast who soberly proposed an undertaking that must have been looked upon at that time about as we should now regard a proposition to build a railroad to the moon. We had then only •J0, 000, 000 inhabitants, and but 5,000 miles of railroad all told, not a mile of it west of the Alleghanics, and the telegraph was just coming into operation. The whole wheat and corn product of the country was not greater then than is now furnished by the two States of Missouri and Kansas, the one of which was then considered the jumping off place of civilization, and the other was not taken into account at all except as an incumbrance and an obstacle. They cour teoußly referred Mr. Whitney's memoiial to the Committee on Public Linda, how ever, of which Sydney Breese, of Illinois, was Chairman, and Tom Corwin and Jesse D. Bright were members ; and there it re. maioed. Poor Whitney besought action upon it until his means were exhausted, and then gave np in despair. A friend of former days whom he h-ul aided in similar extremity helped him to employment, and after a time he secured a small farm near what is now the Soldiers' Home, in the neighborhood of WashiDgtoD, where he died at last, in obscurity and forgotten of the world, an old man of 70 yean. — [St. Louis Globe- Democrat. SOLOMON AND THE BLACKSMITH. The story goes that, during the building of Solomon's Temple, that wise ruler de cided to treat the artisans employed on his famous edilice to a banquet. When the men were enjoying the good things his bounty had provided, King Solomon moved about from table to table, endeavoring to become better acquainted with his work men. To one he said : " My friend, what ie your trade ?" " A carpenter." " Acd who makes your tools V " The blacksmith, "rt plied the carpenter. To another Solomon sad : "What ia your trade?" aud the reply was : "A mason." " And who mikes your tools : "The blacksmith," replied the mason. A third stated that he was a stone cutter, and that the blacksmith also made his tools. The fourth man that King Sol omon addressed was the blacksmith him- Belf. He was a powerful man, -with bared arms, on whic.'i the muicles stood out in bold relief, seemingly almost as hard as the metal be worked. "And whit is your trade, my good man ?' said the Kicg. "Blacksmith," laconically replied the cran of tbe anvil and sledge. " And who makes your tools ?" "Make ttem myself," said the black smith." Whereupon King Solomon immediately proclaimed him the King of Mechanics, because he could not only make his own tools, but all other artisans weie forced to go to him to h&ve the tools of their trade manufactured.

Anna Holyoke Howard, in the Household, says : Nothing is more injurious, not to say ruinous, than a constant system of repres sion with children. "Don't do this," "You must not go there," "You cannot have that," etc. It ia chilling to the youth ful enthusiasm, cramping and dwarfing to all his faculties. Children who daily and hourly listen to such injunctions, who are chtcked in all their t-tlurts and aspirations after what seems to them as glorious and worthy as seem to us our higher aims, feel like exclaiming in despair, " What may we do ! " and if we do not open to them ways of pleasant employment, we are guilty of exercising toward them real cruelty. Active children are generally healthy and intelligent. The disposition to incessant movement, noise, mischief or frolic, which 13 often so trying to weary mothers, is only the expenditure of s superabundant nerv ous force in the child, which, if rightly di rected, may in time make him a powerful agent for good in the world. But what is to be done ? We must have peace and quiet in the evening or we shall he unfitted for the duties of the morrow. Keep them happily employed for a little while and then send them to bed early, and so take your rest and recreation after they are asleep. Soire place their bli9S in action, some in ease, Thoee call it pleasure and oi.tontiuent these. Children certainly place their bliss in ac tion, and we who enjoy rest after labor must be patient with them. I know a mother who always ha 9 a little play or story- telliDg or reading with her \ children the hour before bedtime. On Sunday she and their father each devote part of the day in walking with them and ! reading to them in books suited to their en tertainment and improvement. I need hardly say they are among the mostintelli- ' gent and promising children of my acquain tance. (live children something pleasant to do ' or think about, a block house to build, a ' puzzle to put together, paper to cut, bub- ' bles to blow, a stick to whittle, a picture to paint, or to look at, a top to Bpin, dough ' to make into cakes to bake for themselves, a little broom to sweep the doorsteps, a wheelbarrow and a little shovel to dig ' sand, anything to keep them busy and ' happy, for a busy child is a happy child, a healthy child, and. if you have rightly ' managed his employments, a good child.

It ii not a wv>te of time for pa rents to stop their work long enough to pet a child, to tell him a story, or play a rol- \ licking game.

There are three distinct classes — the imperfect females (the workers), the males, and the perfect females. Two ants working at a time are apparently sufficient to supply a nest of three or four hundred with Jood. When Sir John Lubbock first noticed two working for a whole neet, he thought they might be individuals remarkably fond of work, so he removed them. Two others took their places in foraging ; »nd, as soon as these two were also removed, two others took their place.

DAILY Rf(l!RI» r\lO\ BCKIEB VOUTJfE XTI-HVJIBEa t 59. THE MOON AND THE WEATHER. t.o belief is more general thaa that the >n exercises an influence over the ither. People who declare that they not superstitious in the smallest degree, eve th»t a change in the weather is all it certain to occur with every change in moon. Perhaps they inherited the be uei, but if they did not they acquired it in very early life and strengthened it through years of observation. Their ob servations were not very accurate, and their methods of recording them far from methodical. They believed that the weather changes with the moon, and when a sudden change did occur at the appear ance of a new, quarter, half or full moon they remembered it and sometimes noted it down. If the weather did not change at about the lame time the moon did, they, did not charge their mem ory with the failure. By means like these they became more strongly convinced of the influence of the moon on the weather. Chher circumstances tended to confirm the belief. Every almanac displays the various phases of the moon with the time of the occurrence of each. These at least suggest that the event is of very con siderable consequence, for no notice weald be taken of it if it was not of importance. Many think, without being informed of the fact, that the time of the moon's changes are ac 3 rately given so that ;ro;>'p miy know when there is to be a change in the weather. Farmers, who9e crops are largely influenced by the weather, study the alma nac very diligently, and often with a view of forecasting the weather. In fact, they often plan to commence a certain kind of work at a given time, or to r,ut off certain labors on account of expected changes in the weather, which, they think, are condi tioned on changes cf the mcon. Scientific men in different times and in various countries have attempted to over, turn the popular and almost universal be lief that the moon influences the weather. They have been at the trouble of keeping an accurate account of the prevalence of winds, the fall of water, the degree of ttm. perature, and other phenomena, with a view of showing whether changes are more likely to occur at one time in the lunar month than at another. They have all come to the conclusion that no coincidence exists between the changes of the moon and those of the weather. At the meeting of the British Association for the Advance ment cf Science, this year. Sir William Thomson stated that "careful observation with the barometer, thermometer and ane mometer, at the time of new moon, full moon and half moon, has failed to establish any relation whatever between the pha-ea of the mcon and the weather," and that " if there is any dependence of the weather on the phases of the moon, it is only to a degree quite imperceptible to ordinary observation." S.ill it ia questionable if this announcement will in the least shake the faith of farmers and sailors, who, more tbsn other classes of persons, are directly interested ia the weather, in their old ideas about the in fluence of the moon upon it. They will go through life not expecting to see a "drought broken" or the cessation of a continuous rain till the moon changes. Neither will their faith be changed in the favorable or unfavorable influence of the moon on certain crops planted at different times in the lunar month. They will con tinue to plant potatoes and other root crops "in the dark on the moon," and to sow small grains "in the light of the moon." They will slaughter their hogs and their bullocks, if they are intended for home consumption, when the moon is on the in crease, so that " the meat will not waate away in the fryiDgpan." They will, how ever, lay up rail fence while the moon ia decreasing in siz» so as to prevent the rails from warping and from rottitg out before their time. It may be said that no evil results from believing in a harmless superstition. Sacb, however, is not always the case. Dr. Draper has shown that superstitious people are very liksly to be conquered in war. They will not Bet out on a march or engtge in any hazardous undertaking unless alt the signs ami omens are favorable. If ttey place reliance in lucky and unlucky daj a t ity will accomplish less in a given tiu.e than people who regard all days as of equal value. If they rely on eupernatural aid they will not use their best exertions. They will attribute victory or defeat to other than human acd natural causes. If such are the effects of a belief in supcrsti] tions on a people engaged in war, similar unfavorable t fleets would be observed among people engaged in a peace ful pursuit like that of farming. The delay of two weeks in planting a crop would often result in failure. It is likely that the general belief in certain agricult ural superstitions has had much to do with rendering farming unprofitable. It jb gen erally very difficult to dii cover the origin of a superstition, on account of its great antiquity. Superstitious beliefs are the oldest we inculcate. They arc also among the first that are received in childhood. They are taught in the nursery long before we learn to read, and many years before we commence to study science. Such be liefs are very difficult to dispose cf. Our judgment may condemn them as follies, but they remain to influence our actions. Few persons are willing to acknowledge that they are superstitious, although they hold to beliefs having no foundation on carefully considered observations made by themselves or others. Tt ; ey hold to the doc trine that relations exist between certain things that cannot he explained with our present knowledge of science. HOT AND COLD DRINKS. A correspondent of Knowledge calls at tention to some of the disadvantages of hot dtinkp. Cold drink*, he says, are natural to man, though most people nowadajH are so uted to hot drinks that they do not feel satisfaction - - really stimulation — unleis they have them. Hot diiriks are injurious to the tongue, for they deaden its sensation, and, after taking hot soup or drick, the toDgue becomes quite numb, aud unable to taste the fine tUvors of a dish. The teeth are greatly injured by them, and n.ai y dentists say caries (decay) is due to them alone. Thty crack the enamel, and thus allow caries to set in. When caries hi a once Ftt ia, hot drinks are a common cause of neuralgir. Hot drinks are specially hurtful to tho stomaub. They cause irritation of the nerves of the stomach, and consequent mild i&fiimmation of that organ, co that after a hot drink the stomach is red and congested ; in time a debilitated condition is set up. A temperature of 100° Kahr. also destroys the active ferment of tho gastric juice -pepsin — and so leads to ia digextion. If the stomach is at all disord ered, hot drinks give rise to much griping pain, and iv many cases to vomiting. In cases cf diarrr<et, too, hot drinks only in crease it, while cold ones tend to lessen it. Tiirat is not common in winter, unless sugary, salty or hot spiced foods have been taken. In cold weather the air c-mtains more moisture than in hot, and in cold weather there is less perforation. Hot drinks increase the volume of heat in the body, and if that is not required it is quickly got rid of by the skin. Water is the best thirst-quencher, but if simple food be taken the need of drinks will be tmalL Many vegetarians drink nothing from month to month, the only fluid they get being the juices of the fruits which they eat. Hit pleasant drinks, like tea, coffee, etc., may be taken lukewarm for a time with little apparent damage. The least injurious is cocoa, made with plenty of milk, and al lowed to stand until nearly cool. A good test ia to apply the little finger to the drink, and if it be not hot to it, then it may safely be taken.
