YOV KISSED ME. You kissed me! my head had dropped low on your breast, With a feeling of shelter and infinite rest.; While the holy emotion my tongue dared not speak, Flushed up like a flame from my heart to my cheek; Your arms held me fast—Oh ! your arms were so bold, Heart beat against heart iu that passionate hold ; Your glances seemed drawing my soul through my eyes, As the sun draws the mist from the sea to tbe skies; And your lips clung to mine till I prayed in my bliss They might never unclasp from that raptur ous kiss. You kissed me! my heart, my breath and my j will, In delirious joy for the moment stood still : j Life had for me then BO temptations, no charms, No vista of pleasure—outside of your arms ; And were I this moment an angel, possessed Of the glory and peace that are given the blessed, I would fling my white robes unrepioingly down, I wduld tear from my forehead that beautiful crown. To nestle once more in that haven of rest, With your lips upon mine and my head on your breast. You kissed me! my soul iu a bliss so divine, Reeled and swooned like a foolish man drunk en with wine; And I thought 'twere delicious to die then, if death Would but come while my lips were yet moist witE your breath ; 'Twere delicious to die, if my heart might grow coid. While your arms wrap me round in that pas sionate fold And these are the questions I ask day and night, Must my life taste but once such exquisite de light? Would you care if your breast were my shel ter as then ? And if you were here, would kiss me Bgain ? Jfarm, (harden & liousefcolf THE TABLE-ORDER and ORNAMENT. It was Dickens, we think, who said he could always judge of tbe character of a hotel by the condition of the Caster. Now do not quarrel about the spelling of the word, for we ! have looked into both the W's, and are sure that er is right and not or. We sbobld like to write Castor but both W's forbid. If Dickens was right in his estimation of public houses by this standard, it is, we think, a good oDe to apply to private tables, and it is lair to judge a housekeeper by her caster —to which we may add the salt cellar. Bait, pep-, per, aud vinegar, are needed at most meals, aud besides these oil, mustard, catsup, and other sauces, are more or less used. Let us take up these things as a matter of order. In tie first place the salt cellers and the caster should never be put away until they have been properly replenished for tbe next meal. We say never with an emphasisffor nothingis more annoying than to find that there is no pepper or vinegar in the cruets, and it is in just these little things that the housekeeper showg ber tact. Let m discuss these condi diluents. In the first place there is salt. Good salt should have no smell, snd it should not become moist, no matter how "muggy'' the weather. If salt shows either of these de fects, try some other brand, or some other store, and insist upon good salt, r.ot only for butter but for table use. It is to be* had. l'epper is the next article of importance. Outrageous adulterations are practiced in the grinding of pepper end other spices, yet it is very inconvenient to do it one's self. De mand of the retailer that he shall furnish you a good article, and he will soon find out where to get it. Most of us who live near cities use white pepper. The black pepper is soaked in water until it loses its useless black skin, und then the grain is ground. It coals a lit tle more, but it is neater in the caster, and does not blacken the iood. Of course this is a refinement which ouly those near large cities can practice ; but good, straight ahead black pepper, if it be pure, is good enough. Vinegar is the condiment next, most in use. Get good cider vinegar, and it will be the better the longer it is kept. Cider vinegar has an aroma, a fragrance, about it that he longsnot to wine, wh'skey, or any other vin egar. It is very true that the name vinegar means sour wine, but give us sour cider in preference. Sugar, or molasses and water, and many other things, will make a sour liq uid which may be called vitiega-, but nothing can equal that n.ade from apple juice. Oil many people do not use oil. Do not put it in tbe castor unless it is good—emphatically good. To those who use oil there is nothing more annoying than that of a poor quality. . Better omit it altogether, tbau to present an indifferent article. Mustard. There are two kinds of mustard, so distinct that they should be called by two different names. The strong, biting English or American mustard is best ; known. The powdered mustard is mixed with cold water, and sometimes a little salt is added. This is the common mustard upon our tables. The German and French have a way of preparing mustard in which much of its pungency is modified by spices. If any of our German readers can Riye us a recipe for this manner of preparing roustarU, we should be glad, as we believe that no one who has once tried it would willingly take tbe oth er kind. Catsup and fauces. Theseare not considered as necessary in the caster. Cat sup, if properly made of tomatoes, is too thick and unmanageable to get through the narrow neck of a cruet, and it is better to put it upon tbe table in a separate bottle. The same with Worcestershire and other sauces that may be fancied It i 3 a great deal bet ter to have a common, black bottle for catsup, from which those who desire it can get some, than to have an elegant cut-glasa cruet into which the catsup has been introduced with a difficulty only to be equaled by that experi enced by those who attempt to get it out. WHAT IS JK>ST BY KEEPING CORN.—A cor respondent ot tbe Davenport, 111., Gazette, put two hundred measured bushels of corn in a crib iu November, 1868, which were recent ly marketed. The corn was kept in a well protected crib, and was in excellent condition wLen sold. It was found to have shrank lorty eight bushels, equal to twenty-four per <ent. discount from the original amount. I cere was no unusual exposure to rats, bad weather, Ac., the corn was first quality, aud he thmKi the experiment was in all respects a fair test of the profit and loss of hotting over. OCR \\ OOL MAM-I-ACTCRES.— According to lion. E. B. Bigelow, President of the Nation al Wool Manufacturers Association the an nua! value ot the wool manufactures in the Lotted States, and of those manufactures in which wool is a component part, is not less than $175,000,000. Of these goods, more than four fifths are mada from American wools. Tbe coarse carpet wools, which are not grown here at all, the worsted combing wools, and the fine clothing wools which are growu by us only in limited quantities, go to make up the rest. COFFEE. The Rev. J. C. Fletcher, late of Brazil— now Consul to Oporto, gives the following in formation in a late lecture : A good cup cf coffee could not be made by boiling—the best cup goes up in a smell to the fourth story of tile house—and people should brown and grind their own coffee. There is no way for the south and West to get good coffee except to ask tor the Golden Rio, or Gold Washed Rio, when they ask for that, they will get what they want. Coffee should be browned in a cylinder evenly, and not bnrned ; it should be ground about like corn meal, and then one tablespoonful put in the pot for every cup. One cup of water ttr every four caps of coffee, is enough. It should not be boiled ; percolating is the only Christian way to make coffee. When done, pour one quarter of a cup ef the decoction into a cup, and fill up with boiled milk. By this plan yon will have a drink worthy of the gods. Water and coffee have no affinity for each other; boiled milk only should be used. GKEXSE os CARPET. —There is nothing that annoys a tidy housekeeper so much as to have her carpet spotted with lamp oil or grease, and we therefore make known for their bene fit the following recipe for extracting oil or grease spots from carpets or clothes : Cover the grease spot with whiting, and let it re main until it becomes saturated with the grease ; then scrape it off, and cover the spot with another coat of whiting, and if this does not remove the grease, repeat the appli cation. Three coats of whiting will, in most cases, remove the spot, when it sbould be brushed off with a clothes-brush. Is a mow twenty feet wide by thirty feet long and twenty-five feet deep, 450 feet, of herds grass, or 350 red top, or 550 clover, is a ton. JOMI BILLINGS PAPERS. Puddin and Milk. Lov iz sed to be blind, but i kno lols uv phellows in love who kan see twice as much ill their galls az i kan. The miser iz a riddle. What he possesses he haint got, and what he leaves behind him he never had. Good phisick iz like a fiddle, furnishes the tune, while nature cuts the pigeon wing and cures the patient. Caution tho very often wasted, iz a good risk to take. l'ity iz about the meanest wash that one man can offer another. 1 had rather have a teu dollar greenback that had been torn in two twice and pasted together, than tew have all the pity thare iz on the upper side ov the earth —pity is nothing more than a quiet sat isfacshun that I am a great deal better oph than you am, and that I intend to keep so. Fortune iz like a coquette, if you don't run after her she will run after you. Did you ever hear a very rich man siDg? Ifi was goin to paint a picktur of Faith, Affection and Honesty, i would paint aii dog lookin up in my face and waggen his tail. The devil iz a mean kuss; he never keeps hiz own promises, but always makes us keep ours. Truth iz az artless az a child, and az pur swasive. There iz nothing in this life that men pay eo hi a price for az they do for repentance. Laws are made, customs grow —laws hav tew be executed, customs execute themselfs —laws begin where customs end. Men who hav a good deal tew say, use the fewest words. Punning iz nothing more than miraickry; the best punster now living iz a monkey; he makes a pun on a louse forty times a day bi skratching hiz head. The read to wealth iz a highway, but the road to knowledge iz a bveway. Shame iz the dieing embers of virtew. I don't know ova better kure for sorrow then tew pity somebody else. Experience iz a grindstone, and it iz lucky tor us if we kan git brightened by it, not ground. We shouldn't fotgit one thing, that thare iz not a single fee simple on this fut-stool; even the best tooth in oar hed may fall to nking before sunset aud hev to be jerked out. Ignorance iz the wet nuss ov prejndice. Anticipation iz constantly nibbling expekt ed pleasure until it consumes it, jisa so the skool boy who visits his basket during the forenoon too often, has alreddy discounted his dinner. I never knu a man troubled with melankol ly who had plenty to dew and did it. Good breeding, az i understand it, iz giv ing every man hiz due, without robbing your self. Nature iz jist az hooest az a cow. i alk little, but listen out loud, yung men, iz the way tew make the company suspect you—i mean suspect yu ov knowing a grate deal more than yu aktually do. If you should reduce the wants ov the peo ple ov Nu York city down tew aktua! necea sitys, and plain comlorts, yu would hav tew dubb'e. the perlice farce tew keep them from I committing suicide. People when they find fault with theirselfs, ! are generally more auxious tew be consoled j than forgiven, and therefore, when a man be- i gins tew confess biz sins tew me and sez, 1 "there ain t no hope for him," i tell him he ought tew kno awl about it. and I guess iz more than half right. \\ bat the world wants iz good examples, : not so much advice; advice may be wrong, , but examples prove themselfs. Pride iz bogus. Adam at one time had a right to be proud, but he let sin beat bim out ot biz birthright. A crowing hen aud a cackling ruster are very misfortunate poultry iu a family. As a ginra. thiog the man who marrys a woman ov more uppercrust than himself will find the woman more anxious tew preserve the distance between them than tew bring him up tew her grade or go down tew his level. Titles are valuable : they make us acquaint ed with menny persons who otherwise would be lost among the rubbish. Peace iz the soft and holy sbader that vir tew casts. Habits are like the wrinkles on a man's brow, if yu will smooth out the one i will smooth out the other. II iz & darned sight easier tew find six men who kan tell exactly how a thing ought to be did than one who will do it. Marrying for money is a meaner way tew git it than connterfitting.

We beg leave to announce that we have accept ed the agenry of the KANSAS PACIFIC RAILWAY CO., For the sale of its New Seven Per Cent. Thirty Year Gold Loan, Free from Tax. This Loan amounts to $6,500,000. First Mortgage Land-Grant and Sinking Fund Bonds, secured upon the extent ion of tho Railway from near Sheridan, in Kansas, to Denver, Colorado, a distance of 237 tuilcs, of which 12 miles are com pleted, and ihe rest is under construction.

In addition to this the Bonds are also secured by a first mortgage of the Government Land Grant of Three Mil lion Acres, extending in alternate sections on cither side of the track, from the 394 th mile post in Kansas to Denver. The proceeds of tbe Bale of these lands are to he invested by the Trustees in the 7 per cent Bonds themselves up to 120 or in U.S. bonds, as A Sinking Fund for the Redemption of the Bonds. The lands embrace some of tho finest portions of the magnificent Territory of Colorado, inclu ding a coal field and pinery. The company also holds as an asset another tract of Three Millions of Acres in the State of Kansas, and although not pledged as a security for this Loan, their possession adds largely to tho Com pany's wealth and credit. We estimate the Value of the Company's property, covered by this mortgage, at $23,000,000 net, while the Loan is merely $6,500,000. The bonds have Thirty Years to Run, from May 1, 1869, and will pay Seven per cent.
