For the Inquirer. WHY OUR YOUNG MEN I.EA\E US. The tanner, the mechanic, the tradesman, men in whatever employment or profession among us complain frequently that our best, most intelligent and enterprising young men are continually leaving us. We have no pa tience with such complaints. The fact stares us in the face: the complaint is well founded but the fault is with the complaioer and not with those who leave us. Then why complain. Why not rtt ourselves to remedy the fault we all deplore? He who sits down idly lamen ting troubles his own laziness or obstinacy has brought npon him deserves no sympathy. j Bedford County is to day poor, with a population scarcely larger than twenty years ago. Her sons are scattered in every slate throughout the wide west, enterprising, thrifty and prosperous. Why are they not here in stead of there? For 110 other reason as a general rule than that their parents have been so old fogy, stolid and ignorant in their ways that their children, if they bad the least enter prise in their composition, became so disgus ted with the slowness of things at home that they would no longer endure it and left to seek their fortunes among strangers iu a strange land. The ways in which the young are thus daily driven from their homes are multifarious. The method usually pursued is somewhat as follows. The farmer leads his sons at the first peep of morning light to the fields and then with brief intermissions for meals, tbey toil till darkness ends their labor for the day; no books or papers are allowed, for they take up time that should be eroyloyed in labor. No improved farm implements, reapers or mowers or threshers —they coat too much we can't afford tbero. No time for school there is too much work to be done- No holidays they are idle dissipations—Noth ing but labor from dawn till dark week in and week out the year through—No experiments with new crops, uew- methods of culture; new implements or improved stock, they are ex pressive luxuries farmers sons must not ex pect to enjoy—There are no books kept —DO estimates made of the profit of crops or work —The father complains of hard work, savs farming don't pay. declares everybody makes money but himself and manages in the end to so completely prevent any enjoyment by bis children at home and to present so hopeless and gloomy a prospect generally, that he manages to drive his children away from home abont as fast as they reach their majority. The same programme is followed by the tradesman and as a general rule with the same results. All these however fail to drive some of the more apt away from the calling of thair fathers, if any of this class are found who through superior intelligence have seeu the capabilities of their calling and out of genuine love for the business of their fath ers, propose to remodel things and try to im prove upon the order of things to which they have been brought up, there is one pretty sure method of curing their mania. This c'ass of enterprising youths generally mani fest a desire to improve the general appear ance of things at borne by repairing broken down fences, cleaning up the grass plot, plant ing shrubbery, Ac., and giving a general ap pearance of tidiness and neatness about the homestead. This is a dangerous form snd is apt to be persistent. It indicates a tendency to make calculations, keep books, and a desire to know what things cost, how certain kinds of work pay, Ac. These are all unmistakable indications that the young gentleman is a sort of natural born Yankee be may do for western farming, but he is entirely too smart for a Bedford County farmer. The best way to get rid of him is to promptly forbid any of these demonstrations, don t permit a loose paling to be fastened on the garden fence, the planting of a rose bush or the removal of rubbish frum about the doorway, don't allow any books or newspa pers about at such a time—they are particular ly dangerous, especially if tbey are of a kind given to book-tarming, horticulture or any other new fangled culture. Drive the young ster to bed as soon as begets bis supper and wake him up before daylight aodseud him to feed the hogs by moonlight or curry and gear the horses by candle light By this means you will generally either succeed in driving him away from home, so you will be no longer troubled with him, or break his spirit into a tractabilitv that will prevent his ever after thinking of modern improvements. If you succeed in accomplishing this last part of the programme, you may be permitted to enjoy your hard work and poor pay, your rickety fences and dilapidateu buildings and scrawnv cattle, h..d perhaps be able to reach your last days in the full enjoyment of a pack of dogs in your kitchen, the cattle in your front yard and a pig stye under your porch and finally ■lie tn the blissful and satisfying assurance that you have successfully combatted the nat ural tendencies of your race to better their condition and succeeded in leaving your pos t" .ty as far, if not alittle farther, behind the age than you yourself were iu the beginning. FARM ITEMS. How TO JrDfiE CATTLE. —In all domestic animals the skin or hide fortns one of the best means by which to estimate their fattening properties. In the handle of oxen, if the hide be soft and silky, it affords a proof of tendency to take meat. A beast having a perfect touch will have a thick, loose skin, floating, as it were, on a layer of soft fat, yielding to the slightest pressure, and spring ing back toward the finger like a piece of soft leather. Such a skin will usually be covered with an abundance of soft, glossy hair, feeling like a bed of moss, and hence it is termed a mossy skin. But a thick set, hard, short hair always handles bard, and indicates a hard feeder. A MACHINE for harvesting com, bv taking the ears from the sulks while standing in the field, was exhibited at the reeent State Fair in Illinois. The apparatus is constructed to strip two rows at once. The stalks are takes between projecting metal faced fingers, and as the machine advances the butt of the car is brought in conuct with a short sickle, playing at the rear of the fiDgers. cutting it off, while the sulk passes under the machine without being pulled up; the oars are received into a large hopper at the rear of the machine, and discharged when it is full.

"Exct >F this bit of sarcas,m" said Smith, to Jones, "but I must say you are an infa mous liar and scoundrel." "Pardon this bit of iron#,'' said Jones to Smith, as he knocked him over with a poker. "WHAT'S that?" said a teacher, pointing to the letter X to a little ragged urchin. "Daddy's name." "No, no, my boy." "Yes it is, I've seed him write it a good many tiroes." As a reverend doctor once passed through j a region of very poor land, he said to a far mer : "Sir, I see your land is not very produc tive." "No sir," said the honest farmer, "our land is just like self-righteousness." "Ah, how is that ?" "Why the more a man has of it the poorer he is."

The Chinese Government having [through the Hon. Anton Burlingame) conceded to this Compa ny the privilege of connecting the great seaports of the Empire by submarine electric telegraph ca ble, tee propose commencing operations in China and laying down a line of nine hundred miles at once, between the following ports, vis Population.

The cable being laid, this Company proposes erecting land lines, and establishing a speedy and trustworthy means cf communication, which must command there, as everywhere else, the commu nications of the Government, of business, and of social life, especially in China. She has no pos- Tel syrtem, and her only means now of communi eating information is by couriers on land, and by steamers on water. The Western World knows that China as very large country, in the main densely peopled; but a few yet realise that she contains more than a third of the human race. The latest returns made to her central authorities for taxing purpo ses by the local magistrates make her population Four Hundred and Fourteen Hillione, and this is more likely to be under than orer the actual ag gregate. Nearly all of these, who are orer ten years old, not only can but do read and write. Her cirilisation is peculiar, but her literature is as extorsive as that of £urope. China is a land of teachers and traders; and the latter are ex ceedingly quick to avail themselves of every proffered facility for procuring early information. It is observed in California that the Chinese make great use of the telegraph, though it there trans mits messages in English alone. To day great numbers of fleet steamers are owned by Chinese merchants, and used by them exclusively for the transmission of early intelligence. If the tele graph we propose, connecting all their great sea ports, were now in existence, it is believed that its business would pay the cost within the flrst two years of its sur cessful operation, and would steadily increase thereafter. No enterprise commends itself as a greater de gree remunerative to capitalists, and to our whole people. It is of a vast national importance com meroially, politically, and evangelically.

This Company, N&tienal in its character, of fers, by reason of its Large Capital, Low Rates of Premium and New Tablee, the most desirable means of insuring life yet presented to the public. The rates of premium, being largely reduced, are made as favorable to the insurers as those of the best Mutual Companies, and avoid all the complications and uncertainties of Notes, Divi dends and the misunderstandings which the latter are so apt to create among the Policy-Holders. Several new and attractive tables are now pre sented which need onl> to be understood to prove acceptable to the public, such as the INCOME PRODUCING POLICY and RETURN PREMI UM POLICY. In the former, the policy-holder not only secures a life Insurance, payable at death, but will receive, if living, after a period of a few years, annual income equal to ten per cent. (10 per cent.) of the par of hie policy. In the latter, the Company agrees to return to the aeeured the total amount of money he hae paid in, in addition to the amount of hie policy. The attention of persons contemplating insur ing their lives or increasing the amount of insur ance they already have, is called to the special advantages offered by the National Life Insurance Company.

Perhaps no one medicine is so universally re quired by everybody as a cathartic, nor was ever any before so universally adopted into use, in every country and among all classes, as this mild but efficient purgative Pill. The obvious reason is, that it is a more reliable and far more effectual remedy than any other. Those who have used it, know that it cured them; those who have not, know that it cures their neighbors and friends, and all know that what it does once it al way*--tb-it it never fails through any fault or neglect of its composition. We have thousands upon thousands of certificates of their remarkable cures of the following complaints, but such cures are known in every neighborhood, and we need not publish them Adapted to all ages and con ditions in all climates; containing neither calomel nor any deleterious drug, they may be taken with safety by anybody. Their sugar coating preserves them ever fresh and makes them pleasant to take, while being purely vegetable no barm can arise from their use in any quantity. Tbey operate by their powerful influence on the internal viscera to purify the blood and stimulate it into healthy action—remove the obstructions of the stomach, bowels, liver, and other organs of the body, restoring their irregular action to health, and by correcting, wherever they exist, uch derangements as are the first origin of dis seise. Minute directions are given in the wrapper on the box, for the following complaints, which these Pills rapidly cure: For Dyspepsia or Indigestion, Listlessness, Lan guor and Loss of Appetite, they should be taken moderately to stimulate the stomach and restore its healthy tone and action. For Liver Complaint and its various symptoms, Bil'ous Headache. Sick Headache, Jaundice or Green Sickness, Bilious Colic and Bilious Fevers, they should be judiciously taken for each case, to correct the diseased action or remove the obstruc tions which cause it For Dysentery or Diarrhce , but one mild dose is generally required. For Rheumatism, Gout, Gravel, Palpitation of the Heart, Pain in the Side, Back aud Loins, they should be continuously takeu, as required, to change the diseased action of the system. With such change these complaints disappear. For Dropsy and Dropsical Swellings they should be taken in large and frequent doses to produce the effect of A drastic purge. For Suppressions a large dose should be taken as it produces the desired effect by sympathy. As a Dinner Pill, take one or two Pills to pro mote digestion and relieve the stomach. An occasional dose stimulates the stomach and bowels into healthy action, restores the appetite, and invigorates the system. Hence it iw often ad vantageous where no serious derangement exists. One who feels tolerably well, often finds that a dose of these pills makes him feel decidedly bet ter, from their cleansing and renovating effect on the digestive apparatus. * DR. J. C.

The superior merits of the "Singer" Machines over all others, for either family use or manu facturing purposes, are so well established ana generally admitted, that an enumeration of their relative excellence is no longer considered nee essary. OUR NEW FAMILY MACHINE, which has been brought to perfection regardless of time, labor or expense, is now confidently pre sented to the public as incomparably THE BEST SEWING MACHINE IN EX ISTENCE. The machine in question is BIMPLE, COMPACT, DURABLE A BEAU TIFUL It is qniet, light running, and capable of per forming a range and variety of work never be fore attempted upon a single machine, -using either silk, twist, linen or eotten thread, and sew ing with equal facility the very finest and eoartest materials, and anything between the two extremes, in the most beautiful and substantial manner. lis attachments for Hemming, Braiding, Cording, Tucking, Quilting, Felling, Trimming, Binding, etc , are novel and practical, and have been in vented and adjusted especially for this machine. New designs of the unique, useful and popular folding tops and cabinet cases, peculiar to the machines manufactured by this Company, ha r e been prepared for enclosing the new Machine. A faint idea however, can at beet be gir through the medium of a (necessarily) limited a verticement; and we therefore urge every perso in quest of a SewiDg Machine by all means to ex amine and test, if they can possibly do so, all tb* leading rival machines before making a purchase A selection can then be made nnderatandingly Branches or agencies for supplying the "Singer' Machines will be found in nearly every city and town throughout the civilised world, whera machines will be cheerfully exhibited, and any information promptly furnished.
