One of these Is the laundry, with a hydrant at the door,
the other two are occupied by the servant*.
The hydrant water is introduced into these cottages as
well as Into the main building, and all the waste water

of a hill, surmounted by a large cedar reservoir containing
five hundred barrels, brought from a never-failing spring

works, (retail price, $2 60 per vol.) A new and complete
w'th, "? descriptive account of those countries and their
inhabitants, from the earliest period of authentic history
to the present time. In which the editor has treated not

The embellishments are about two hundred, and of the

ploy their time in supplying to the people of the United
States. They aro valuable for reference, and should be
possessed by every family in this great republic. There is
not a city or town in these United States, not evon those
or small importance, but contains many citizens to whom
these works are indispensable. They are adapted to the
literary wauts of the Christian, the patriot, the statesman,
and the domestio circle, got up in a superior style of art
and workmanship; and are not only such books as will
sell, but are such as an agent of good principle will feel
tree to recommend, and willing to see the purcliaser again

Our Plan.?The plan the publisher has so successfully
cai ried out for several years, is the obtaining responsible
c en agents, who are well known in their own counties,
owns, and villages, and have time and disposition to cir
culate good and instructive books among their neighbors
and mends. Any person wishing to embark in the enter
prise will risk little in sendi*g $25 or $50, for which he
will receive an assortment as he may direct, at the whole
sale cash prices.
Enterprising and active men of respectability and good
address, would do well to engage in the sale of the above
volumes; and all postmasters, clergymen, book pedlars,

IN consequence of the great number of complaint* which
have for a long time been rnuUe by Emigrants, of fraud*
committed upon them in the Bending of monev to their
friends in Ireland, and to aid and protect the Emigrant,
the lrluli Emigrant Society established a fund, deposited
in the Bank of Ireland, upon which they draw drafts,
payable at sight, at any of the brunches of the Hank.
Persons residing out of the city, by enclosing in a letter
the sum they wish forwarded, with the plainly'written
direction to whom and whore it is to be paid, will have the

Part 4th.?Containing two excellent sneechet, followed
by a happy event?and " The End."
A certain Caliph, once, whose name,
Arabians say, is known to fame,
But which I tlnd too long, to bu
Inserted in iny history,
At night, would doff his rolw of state,
And in disguise perambulate
Hid capital, the truth to hear,
Which comes not oft to royal oar.
This curiosity revealed
Things otherwise forever sealed;
And much he learned of evil dono
By men he showered his gifts upon.
Right often, too, was ho confusod,
To hear his mighty self abused?
Himself, the "gentle," "wise," and "brave,"
Pronounced a " tyrant," "fool," and "slave I"
Now, this was not exactly truo;
The best that Caliph well could do
ile did : but Ministers were vile,
Pervorting all his acts the while.
Good Lordl If Presidents should go
About the streots, in night-time, so!
? ??***
The sage Arabians further say,
The Caliph's custom was, next day,
To summon to his palace hall
Complainants, and atono for all.
Good Lord! if Presidents should try
? ??*??
The last eight verses only ar?
The tuning of my light guitar,
And don't mean anything, indeed?
Which understood, I now proceed.
The Ball was over, day grew bright,
Went on and on with added light,
Till high in heaven the sun was shining?
In prose, 'twas almost time for dining:
But not an echo told a tale
Around romantic Sliannondale ;

Chapter V.?The Witch of Golciko Gouok.
" Annie, what say you of a visit to the fa
mous Witch, in her kennel up there at the
Gorge?" ^
"Only this, Eddy: I'm not afraid to go; but
Ma, you know, is one of the Old School people,
and 1 really believe, much as she loves me, if
she thought I had consulted the fortune-teller
at Golding Gorge, she would conceit I was be
witched by hor, and refuse me the shelter of
our roof forever after, through very fear. In
deed, though, I've the greatest curiosity to see
her, and hear what she would say."
Ah! this " curiosity " is a dangerous thing
with the female sex; and whatever a woman
has curiosity to see or know, that she is bound
to know in the end. Berry, therefore, did not
find it very hard to persuade-her to go; pro
mising that he would satisfy her ma, and pro
testing that his object was to explode this hum
bug, and make the old beldam dissolve her pre
tended league with the devil.
" I'll bet you a kiss, Annie," he said play
fully, "she shall sup with us under the great
sycamore tree, as certain as I shall see her;
and that, too, to old John's appropriate music
on the bugle."
In a few minutes they reached the foot of
the Gorge, and Annie remained timidly behind,
while Berry knocked resolutely at the close
shut door, which he found after some difficulty.
No reply came, and nothing indicated that the
sound was heeded within. Clouds had been
quietly gathering for somo time, and the rain
now began to descend in downright earnest.
Annie's gala-dress was threatened with total
destruction; and as for Berry, he felt far from
easy concerning his Annie, his beaver, and his
broadcloth, lie redoubled his summons at the
door; but the torrent roared so deafeningly
without, and the claps of thunder were so loud
and frequent?for the tempest was raging now
in oil its fury?that no other earthly sound
seemed as though it might rench the inmate.
" Shelter yourself as well as you can, dear
Annie," screamed Edwin, in an interval of the
storm, "and I'll try to beat down the door?
I I'll have to do it!" He gathered up a massive
rock of slate-stone, as he spoke, and hurled it
with surprising effort against the door; but it
was barricaded within, and resisted the assault,
I not budging an inch, when the missile re
I hounded from it and fell heavily to the ground.
| He was preparing to repeat the attack, and
another great rook was actually poised above
I his head for that purpose, when tho door was
i suddenly opened from the inside about an inch,
and a shrill, unnatural voice, distinct above all
the elemental confusion, called out?
" Stop! Who are you, and what do you
J want?"
" Let us in, good woman, for the love of
j Heaven 1" replied Berry; "wo are travellers
from Moorfield Hamlet?a young lady and
| myself?and aro drenched in this infernal rain !
Admit us, and I will reward you well. You
I need not be afraid of us," he added?observing
i her evident reluctance to open the door any
I further?" you need not be afraid, we will not
' harm you."
J " I ain't afeard!" replied tho unearthly voice:
j "let me see you first, fur its been a long time
I sence Damo Goldixon's trusted mankind, an'
| maybe you lie to me!"
At these words, a shrivelled, tawny cou^,te.
'vanco was thrust forward, almost hid oehind
matted locks of snow-white hair, to?,je<j negli
gently over the face, just allowing the shac^y
white brows to appear, and the retreating, lus
treless gray eyes, one of which was entirely
sightless. J
" Come in with you, then !" she sullenly ex
claimed, " but mind ye, ye must pack off as
soon as ye can venture out again 1" As she
spoke she removed a heavy log-bedstead from
etnnd the door, with an exertion of strength
sue did not seem equal to ; and the low door of
,. hut swung reluctantly on its solo rusty
lunge, wide enough to permit Annie Bell and
dwin, now thoroughly soaked with rain, to
i mucli difficulty. Notwitliatand
v !ir uucomforLttble condition, they could
not but gaze with intense curiosity upon the
old drone who had thus grumblingly afforded
them shelter; and was now continuing her hos
pi ality by kindling a brush-fire on the narrow
nearth; mumbling to herself, as she knelt there
whenever she ceased to blow the smoking fticl.
She had not bid them sit, and seemed wholly
to have forgotten their presence, were it not that
wh; ?c.c,upatl?n; tLo preparation of n fire by
!h. i , y dr^ themselves, proved that
she had not. They sat down unbidden upon
the side of the old bedstead, without speaking;
and while the roar of the Potomac through the

no wonder such a singular creature should have

Virgin^ PCaSaQtry RS 111111 of the Garden of
^ Her stature was diminutive; and her faco
and neck an entire succession of wrinkles.
Whenever she spoke, it was apparently with I
the greatest pain?the muscles of her whole
face and neck twitching convulsively, and with
a voice strong, but completely beyond her con
trol, having a most unearthly tone. A hand- I
kerchief of faded blue cotton was tied care
lessly around her bend; under which, every
now and then, she would tuck her coarse hair
white with the frosts of over five-score winters!
iter long bony arms were bare, and her skinny
fingers, frightful to look at, were armed liko tho
wild-cat, with claws that almost appeared never
to have been trimmed. Her loose garment of I
homespun cloth-for frock it could not be
called?was huddled on in the most negligent
manner; and its color wag an excellent match
I ? her 81ckJy? yellow complexion. Altogether
she was as strange a looking creature as one
could be persuaded, in Christian charity, to call
pn'iTi t 7 L Ume the intru(lers had been
enabled to observe thus much, the fire was
blazing comfortably; and bidding them, by a
sweep of her arm, to draw up to it, which they
did, she mumbled as if to herself, but audibly I
;? ? i *ou}d y? come here, an* bid me tell
it. 1 can t change it for you, or I would ! Ob
ye are a comely couple, an' good is in your
hearts; ye have never known trouble, but the ,
I worst is to come to you yet, I know '-sho con
tinued aloud, as she turned to them; while the
only eye she had fired up with n light like in
spiration, and every nerve and vein in her neck '
and face writhed like a nest of slimy serpents:
11know what ye've come for, though ye havn't
told me. Do ye fear now to hear what is
written in the sealed book for ye, that yo do
not ask your destiny? or do you think me a
croaking wretch, that knows not what she says?
Listen, then!"?and here she solemnly lifted
her left hand towards the sky, and pointed, with
the almost Heshless finger of the right, towards
them ; while poor Annie, white as death, leaned
for support upon the shoulder of Edwin, whose
stout heart was moved with a strange feeline it
had never known before.
"Listen!" sho almost shrieked, and then
lowered her voice to its hoarsest tones, while
the storm without grew suddenly hushed, and
her words were distinct as the sobbing sound
issuing from the smoking brushwood on the
"You, Edwin Berry, and you, Annie Bell,
beware of the ford of the Panther Bluff?for it
flows with oblivion for one of ye, and remem
brance for the other-with wo for one, a?d
bnny tears for the other, till this day twelve
month, when that one too shall forget. Now
go ; the storm is over, and I would pity you
when none may see me!"
Annie screamed faintly, and fell without mo
tion upon the floor. While she lay there her
ong sunny tresses showered like a flood of
light around her?her beautiful, inanimate faco
tair and cold as marble, turned upward?an
expression of mingled intense terror and pain
yet lingering around the mouth and brow?
Edwin sprang from his chair, and advancing
as if with the impulse to strike the crono, cried
"Liar! imposter! miserable hag! shame upon
you to play upon the gentle nerves of a timid
girl thus ; take back what you have said. Oh, i
take it back, I implore you!" he continued
changing from invective to expostulation. "Not
for my sake, for I do not care myself; but let '
. hear ^u say that it is not so, and I will '
give you gold enough to quit these paltry
tricks, and live in honesty the rest of your
miserable days!"
The old crone's countenance was a hideous
thing to look upon during ^his harangue her
toothless jaws twisted from sido to side, and
her remaining eye was red as blood from the
excess of her passion.
"Aye!" she shrieked; "Edwin Berry, you
will know this night if I am an imposter, when
you stretch your arms out to mo as you do now,
and as vainly. Begone! begone, I say! I
would be alone."
Sho dashed the creaking door back on the
rusty hinge, and the calm, sweet rays of the
declining sun streamed into that miserable
abode?only onr of the dismal spots his mission
ary beams illumine. Annie soon recovered,
and her first anxiety was to be beyond the
gorgon eye of the strange being whom she now
resolutely believed possessed of supernatural
Annie's pallid face, and the terror depicted in
her features, much as she strove to master it i
occasioned considerable alarm and conjecture
to tho rest of the party when she joined them,
as they were just emerging from the chasm
where they liatl sought shelter when the storm
surprised them. She nor Edwin returned an
answer to the volley of questions which assailed
them; as, " Where had they been ? What had
happened?" and the like. One was possessed
by fear and apprehension, tho other by anxiety 1
on account of the shock his gentle companion
[ had sustained. Old John blew the bugle again,
[ for supper?and more comically still; saying,
that immediately after, they would set out to
return; but this time Edfrin did not suiile, and
Annie, poor Annie, shuddered, for both were
thinking of the Witch of Goldiug Gorge.

It will be seen, from the above tables, that
the European despotisms, with two millions and
and a half of Bquare miles, have nearly ono
hundred and ten millions ol' population, while
the American republics, with eight millions
and a half of square miles, have only forty-two
millions of people. Russia, which is the prin
cipal European despotism, has vast tracts in
the frozen regions altogether uninhabitable.
The lands of the American republics are mostly
in the temperate zones, exceedingly productivo,
and favorable to the development of every ele
ment of national greatness. This fact is forci
bly illustrated by the extraordinary rate of in
crease of our own republic, when compared
with that of European despotisms and mon
archies, some of which are almost stationary.
This country is now progressing in the ratio
of about three per cent, per annum compounded,
which in 1875, twenty-four years hence, will
give us a population of fifty millions; and at the
close of the century, one hundred millions; If
the French republic maintains itself, the popu
lation of European and American republics will
then outnumber the despotisms one hundred
per cent., and equal that of monarchies and
despotisms united. We have not estimated the
probability of accessions to our number by tho
withdrawal of European despotisms and mon
archies from those portions of North America
and the West Indies which have been permitted
to remain in their hands. Nearly a million of
square miles of available territory in the North,
exclusivo of inhospitable tracts in possession of
tho Aborigines, yet remain outside of our
present boundaries, to come into the Union.

Capital Punishment.?In tho details of the
execution of Stookely, in New York on Friday,
19th inst., may be seen the degrading and bru
talizing effects of capital punishment. There
were about five hundred persons present to wit
ness tho great moral spectacle which a distin
guished clergyman of this country once charac
terized as " the rainbow of promise to the moral
Outside of tho prison tho usual crowd of
men, women, and children were assembled, and
those whp witnessed tho execution were grati
fied with more than a usual share of horror.
The victim struggled for six mortal minutes, to
him an eternity of torture, writhing and tear
ing his flesh with his nails, in a manner pecu
liarly edifying to the brutal crowd, who feasted
their eyes upon his choking agonies. If tho
object be simply to annihilate the culprit, who
is no longer fit to live, why not allow the exe
cutioner to enter the cell, and, in tho presence
of a few witnesses, administer some form of
instant and painless death ? Even the Spanish
garotc is far less barbarous than the English
gallows ?, and sitting in a chair no more " igno
minious" than standing upon a scaffold. That
infamous life-snuffer, the French guillotine,
does its work in a cleaner and more mercifid
manner than the rascally cord of the hangman.
I We arc, therefore, decidedly in favor of abol
ishing the gallows, even if tho ?'good of so
ciety" requires tho infliction of capital punish
ment.?Providence Mirror.
He who despises useful employment tramples
under foot a fundamental law of his Creator.
"In tho sweat of thy brow shalt thou eat bread,"
was tho first rule of action prescribed for man,
after the fall?meaning that each member of the
human family should perform an amount of use
ful labor, equal to that required to produce tho
means of his own subsistence. To secure obedi
ence to this law, we are so constituted, physic
ally and mentally, that a violation of it produces
an amount of punishment more than commen
surate with tho pleasure that can bo derived
from stubborn disobedience.?//. L. Jlarvey.
Divuns Definitions.?When a man thinks
he has been insulted, and challenges tho ac
cused, and, besides the insult, gets a bullet
through his nerves, arteries, or u rains, this is
the kind of action called Satisfaction.
When a man's pocket-book is not in a pletho
ric condition at best, and he is compelled, by
an inexorable dun, to hand over the little that
remains, that is the kind of action called Sub
When a tea-sipping, gossipping gathering,
each in turn, letB off tho pent-up steam of scoff,
sneer, and scandal that has been hissing after
delivery for weeks or months, that is the kind
of action called Detraction.
When a man smiths another, in the folly and
madness of his sudden wrath, and gets in return
a blow, or missile, that loosens a tooth, or
blackens an eye, and sends him wounded,
ashamed, and conscience-smitten to his home,
that is what we call Reaction.
In an omnibus tho other day, a little girl, not
more than seven years of age, asked an old gen
tleman "if ho would be her father ?" A look of
surprise was the reply. "Oh," said the pre
cious miss; "don't you know if you'll be my
father till the fares are collected, 1 shall get off
