Excess. Bayard Taylor; in a recent letter
from Germany, says: while either wine or
beer, or both, make an indispensable part of
a German plc-nic, I have never known an in
stance of Intoxication. In tbe first place the
beverages arc alwas pure and light in quality ;
in the second, they are not looked upon as
luxuries, and thciruse Is not considered as a
special indulgence Leaving tbe question of
example out of view which is tbe main
argument used by the advocates of temper
ance against those who use wine without
excess I confess I see no barm In the
habitual use of light, Pur0 vintage. Nothing
is so difficult to measure as the positive
influence of an individual npon his fellow
men, and the coses are rare where a man
with conscious purpose, leads another to his
ruin. I have been frequently assailed by
over-zealous reformers for writing of the
usu of wines without adding a .condemna
tion of the habit; but I, have no condemna
tion but for excess. I do not consider that
the weakness of one gives me tbe right to
attack the temperance of teu. The most
temperate people that I ever found are tbe
Greeks, every one of whom man, woman
and child drinks wine. Xxcess, in fiict. Is
a physical disease, and should be treated as
such ; where there Is any tendency towards
It tbe'only remedy Is total abstinency. But
the stronger and healthier nature has always
seemed to me tbgt which is able to control
Itself. Let our education, domestic as well
as public; develop aud strengthen this quali
ty, ana wo snsu accompiun more man oy
prohibitory laws.
The Value or Time. When the Roman
Emperor said, "I have lost a day," he ut
tered a sadder truth than If he had exclaim
ed i "I have lost a kingdom.'! Napoleon
said that the reason why be beat the Aus
triaus was that they did not know tbe value
of five minutes. At the celebrated battle of
Rlroli, tbe conflict seemed on the point of
hclnir decided against him. He saw tbe
critical state of affairs and Instantly took his
resolution. He despatched a flag to the Ana.
train hcadauarters with nroDosala for and
armistice. The unwary Austrians fell Into'
tbe snare; lor a lew minutes me tnunders or
battle were bushed. Napoleon seized tbe
precious moments, and while amusing the
enemy with mock negotiations, re-arranged
bis line of battle, changed bis front, and in
a few minutes was ready to renounce tbe
farce of discussion for tbe stern arbitrament
of arms. Tne splendid victory of Rlroli
was the result. The ereat moral victories
and defeats of the world often turn on five
minutes. Men loiter, time flies, and all tbe
great interests of life are spewing on with
tbe sure and silent tread of destiny.

the reputation of a female has been tnajpil
rled by. malicious minds until the, cloud has
become dark, onoorh to oTerha5owr'fcr
whole existence, To those Wh6 are accus
tomed not necessarilv from bad raotlTes.
but from thoughtlessness to speak lightly
of females, wo recommend these bint as
worthy of consideration :
Never use a lady's name' in an improper
place, or at an Improper time, or in mixed
.never maice any assertion aooui ner wbmb
you know id bo untrue, or allusion teat yen
know she herself would blush to hear.
When von meet with men who do not
scruple to make use of a woman's name is a
reckless and unprincipled manner, sunn
them, for they are tbe very worst members
of a community ; men lost to every sense of
honor, every feeling of humanity.
Many a good and worthy woman'a charac

broken by a lie. manufactured by some vil
lain, and repeated where it should not have
been, and in the presence of those whose
little judgment could not deter 'them from
circulating the foul and blasting-report.
A slander is soon propagated, and tbe
smallest thing derogatory to the character of
a woman will fly on the wings of the wind,
and magnify a it circulates, until Its mon
strous weight crushes the poor unfortunate
victim,. Respect the name, of woman,' for
your mother and sisters are women; and as
you would have their names .untarnished,
and their lives unemblttered by the slander

tongue may bring npon tbe mother,. thq sla

New Year : To-day being their fourtli day
is tornied, according to their almanac,
" sheep-day," to be followed by cow-day,
horse-day, pea-day, grain-day, hemp-day
and man-day. On the seventh or 'man
day" there will be a grand demonstration
at the Fatee gardens, whither all the beau
ties repair to see and to .be seen. At this
festive season a peculiar kind of flower
makes its appearance called shut sin fa,
the history of which is somewhat interest
inc. Once udou a time a- husbandman is
said to have become possessed of exten
sive landed property in the neighborhood
of Amoy. ' On his death tho eldest mem
ber of the family appropriated to himself
the lion's share of the parental estate,
leaving to his younger brother a .barren
piece of ground by the sea-shore. It is
on this soil tho plant spoken of is said to
have, and is still, grown in time to find a
market and to constitute one of the pecu
liarities of the New Year embellishments.
The growth of tbo plant is, therefore,
looked upon as joss-pidgin," and as snch
our. benighted friends take it to be as
much an object to pay homage to as their
graven images.
How to Get Sleep. This is to many
persons a matter of high importance.
Nervous persons, who are troubled with
wakefulness and excitability, usually have
a strong tendency of blood' on (ho brain,
with cold extremities. The pressnro of
the blood on the brain keeps it in a stim
ulated or wakeful .state-, and the pulsations
in tho head are often painful Let them
rise und chafe the body and extremities
with brush or towel, or rnb smartly- with
the lianas, to promote circulation, and
withdraw the excessive amount of. blood
from the brain, and they will fall asleep in
a few moments A cold bathor a sponge
bath,, and robbing, or a good i run or a
rapid walk in the open air, or a eoing no
and down stairs, a few times Just, before
retiring will aid in equalizing circulation
and promote sleep. These rules are sim
ple and easy of application In the castle
or cabin, and may minister to the comfort
of thousands who would freely expend
monoy for an anodyne to promote " Na
ture's sweet restorer, balmy sleep."

Enclisli caoitalists of a speculative. dis
position are turning their attention to the
oil resources of Northern Italy. ' Thia
country has been known for ages to be
rich in petroleum of peculiar qualitio) and
of a natural transparency. In iiarigaao
the oil appears on the surface ofBfimll
pools of water, and throughout the whole
of tbe hills of tbe northern sections tbeie
are unmistakable geological signs of the
existenco of petroleum . deposits. There
are wells at Monte liocello, which have pro
duced eleven tuns of oil. per day, nnd this
at the depth of less than 160 feet' The
Italians seem entirely apathetic about de
veloping the oil resources, but tne intro
duction of English capital and American
machinery will make petroleum one of the
most profitable of Italian industries.
