First get a wife; secondly be patient. Yeu nay bare great trials and perplexities ia your business with the world, but do ate therefore, carry to your bome a clouded brow. Your wife may hare many trials, which, tho' of less magnitude, may have been as bard to bear, A kind, conciliating word, a, ten der look, wil! do wonders in cbaaing from ber brow xitl clouds of gloom. Yon encounter difficulties in ti.e open air, fanned by heaven's cool breezes; but jour wife is shut out from these healthful influences, and her health fails, and her spirits lose then elasticity . Butob! bear with her; she has tria?3 and sor rows to which you are a stranger, but rvhicb your tenderness can deprive of all their ail' guisb. v Notice kindly her little attentions and efforts to promote your comfort. Do not take them all as a matter of course, and pass them by, at the same time being very sure to observe any omission of what you may consider duty to you. Do not treat ber with indifference, if you would not sear and palsy her heart, which, watered by kindness would, to the latest- day of your existence, throb with sincere and constant affection. Sometimes yield your wishes to hers. She has preferences as strong as you,and it may be just trying for her to yield her choice as for you. Do you find it bard to yield sometimes ! Think you is it difficult for her to give up al ways? If you never yield to her wishes, there is danger that she will think you are selfish, and care only for yourself; and with such feelings 'she cannot love you as Ehe might; ' Again, show yourself manly, so that yiiur wife can look up to you, and feel that you will act nobly, ani that she can confide in your judgement. fl'' ;. TOBKCOMKISHIPPV. : , In the first place, if you waut to be miser able, be selfish.; Think all the time of your self,' and of your things.

'Never thick ol enjoying the satisfaction of seeing others happy; but the rather, if you see a smiling face, be jealous, least another should enjoy what you have not.

Be; constantly afraid lest someone shorild en croach oporr your rights; bewatchtul against it, and if- any one come near your- things, snip st them like a mad dog. Contend ear nestly for every thing that is your own, thu' itjnny not.be. worth a pin; br your "rights'" are just at much concerned as if it were a pound of gold. Never yield a point. .Be very sensitive, and take everything that is said to you in playfulness in the moat se rou3 manner.' Be jealous of your friends lest they should not think enough of you.

"" VOL. XLI. THE POT OF GOLD. Deacon Bancroft, though a very good man in the main, and looked ep to with respect by all the inhabitants of the village Centre vine, was rumored to have, in Yankee par lance, "a pretty sharp eye to the main eh a nee," a peculiarity from which deacons are not always exempt. Iq worldly matters he was decidedly well to do, having inherited a fine farm from bis father, which was growing yearly more val uable.. It might be supposed that, under these circumstances, the deacon, who was fully able to do so, would have found a help mate to share bis house and name. But the deacon was wary. Matrimony was to him in some measure a matter-o'money, and it was bis firm resolve not to marry unless he could thereby enhance his worldly pros perity. Unhappily, the little village of Cen- treville, and the towns in tbe immediate - ciniij. contained few who were qualified in this impfvtant particular, and-?i those few there were probably none witn wnom me deacon's suit would have prospered. Su it haouened that year after year pas sed away, until Deacon Bancroft was in the nrime of life forty -nve or mereauouts ana still unmarried, and ia U homan probability likely to remain so. Deacon Bancroft's nearest peigntor was a widow. The widow Wells, who had passed through one matrimonial experience, was some three or Jour years younger man ueocun oiu- croft. She was still quite a comely woman. Unfortunately, the late Mr. Weils had not been oble to leave her sufficient te make her independent of the world. All that she possessed was the small, old-fashioned house in which sbe lived, and a small amount of money, which was insufficient to support her and a little son of seven, though hardly to be classed as 'productive' of anything but mis chief. The widow was therefore obliged to take three or four boarders, to eke out her scanty ncome, which of course imposed upon her considerable labor and anxiety. It is not surprising then, under these cir cumstances," she now and men wouia nave bethought herself of a second marriage, as method of bettering her conditioul Or again, need westeem h a special wonuer, if, ia her redactions upon this point, she should have cast her eyes upou her neighbor Deacon Bancroft! The Deacon, as we have already said, was in flourishing circumstan ces. He would be able to maintain a wife in great comfort; and, being one of the chief personages in the village, could accord her a prominent social position. He was not especially handsome, calcu lated to make a profound impression upon the female heart this was true but he was of a good disposition , kind-hearted, and would no doubt make a good sort of a hus band. A desirable match. Some sagacious person, however, has ob served that it takes two to make a match, a fact to be seriously considered; for in the present case it was exceedingly doubtful whether the worthy deacon, even if he had known the favorable opinions of his next door neighbor, would have been inclined to propose changing her name to Bancroft, un less, indeed, a suitable motive was orougnt to bear upon him. Here was a chance for finessing. One evening, after a day of fatiguing la bor, the widow Wells sat at the fire in the sitting-room, with her feet resting upon the fender. "If ever I am so situated as not to have to work so bard," she murmured, "I shall ba happy. It's a hard life keeping boarders. If I was only as well off as Deacon Ban croft" Still the widow kept up her thinking, and and by-and-by her face brightened up. She had an idea, which she resolved to put into execution at the very earliest practicable moment. What it was the reader will dis cover in the Bequel. "Harrv." said she to her son the next morning, "1 want you to stop at ueacon Bancroft's as vou go along to school, and ask him if he will call and see me in the course of tbe morning or afternoon, lust as be finds it most convenient." Deacon Bancroft was a little surprised at the summons. However, about 1 1 o'clock, he called in. The widow had got on he din ner, and had leisure to sit down. She ap- pea red a littler embarrassed. "Harry told me you would like to see me," he commenced. "Yes, Deacon Bancroft, I do but I am very much afraid vou will think strange of it at least, of What I may hare to say to you. .The deacon very politely promised not be surprised, though at the same time bis curi osity was visibly excited. "Suppose," said the widow, casting down her eyes "mind I am only supposing a case suppose a person should find a pot full of gold pieces in their cellar, would the law have the right to touch it, or would it belong to them." - ' The deacon pricked p his ears. "A pot of gold pieces, widow? Why nn- qtestionabIy, the law would have nothing to do wrh it." "And flie one who had formerly owned the house couldn't come forward and claim it, could he deaco?" inrfuired the widow further with apparent anxiety. "Ho, madam, unquestionably not. When he house was disposed of, everything went with it, as a matter of course." "I am. glad to hear it, deacon. You won't think strange .of the question, but it happened to occur to my mind, and I tho I would like to have it satisfied." "Certainly; widow, certainly,''; said the deacon abstractedly. , . . "And, deacon, as you are here, I hope you wilf stop to dinner with us. ' 1 will be ready punctually at twelve." . "Well, no," said the. deacon rising, "I'm obliged to you, but they'll be expecting me at home." . .''"."'. At any rate, deacon," said the widow, taking a steaming mince pie from the oven, "you wont object to taking a piece of my mince pie, you must know- I rather pride myself oa mince pies." Tbe warm pie sent forth such a delicious odor, that the deacon was sorely tempted, and after saying, "Well, realy," with the intention of refusing, he finished by saying, "On the whole, I guess I will, as it looks so Bice." : . , : Tbe widow was really a good cook, and the deacon ate with much gusto the gener ous slice which the widow cut for him, and after a little more chatting upon unimpor tant aubjecw, withdrew in some mental per- nlaxlt. "Was it possible," thought he, "that the widow- could really have found a pot of gold in her cellar! . She did not say so, to be sure, but why should sbe show so much anx- iets to know as to the proprietorsb:p of treas ure thus found, if she had not happened up on some! To be sure, so far as his know ledge extended, there was no one who had ) ola ware occupied the house who would be in the least what to the surprise of the village people likely to lay up that amount of gold; but who could not conceive how she had brought then the house was one hundred and fifty : him over. years old, at the very least, and undoubtedly Some weeks after the ceremony the dea had many occupants of which he knew J con ventured to imjuire about the pot of gold nothing. It might be after all. The wid- she had found in the cellar. ow's evident anxiety gave additional proba bility to the supposition. "I will wait and watch," thought the dea con. It so happened that. Deacon Bancroft was one of the directors in a Savings' Institution , situated in the next town, and accordingly used to ride over there once or twice a month, to attend meetings of tbe Board- On the next occasion of this kind, the widow Wells sent over to know if he would carry her over with him as she had a little business to attend to there. The recitiest was readily accorded. Ar rived In the village, Mrs. Wells requesterl to- be set down at tbe bank. "Ha! ha!" thought the deacon; "that means something." He said nothing, however, but determined to come back, and find out as he could, readi ly, from the cashier, what business 'she had with tbe ban!!. The widow tripped into the office, pretend ing to look very nochalant. "Can you give me small bills for a five dollar gold piece!" she inquired. "With pleasure," was the reply. "By the way," said she, "the bank is in quite a flourishing condition, is it not! " "None in the State on a better footing," was the prompt response. "You receive deposits, do you not 7 "Yes, madam, we are receiving them every day." "Do vou receive as high as a9 live thou sand dollars 7" "No," said the cashier with some surprise "or rather we do not allow interest on so large a sum. One thousand dollars ia our limit. Do you know of any one who" "It is of no consequence," said the widow burridly; "I only asked for curiosity. By the way, did you say how much interest you allowed on such deposits as came within your limit!" "Five per cent., madam." "Thank you. I only asked for curiosity. What a beautiful morning it is!" And the widow tripped lightly out. Short afterwards the deacon entered. "How's business, Mr. Cashier!" he ask ed. "About as usual." "Had any deposits lately!" "None of magnitude." "I brought over a lady this morn ing who seemed to have business with you." "The Widow Wells." "Yes." "Do you know whether she had any mo ney left her lately?" "None that I know of," said the deacon, pricking up his ears. "Why! Did she de posit any!" "No; but she inquired whether we receiv ed deposits as high as five thousand dollars." "Indeed!" ejaculated the deacon. "Was that ell she came for!" he inquired a moment afterwards. "No; she exchanged a gold piece for some bills." Ha!" pondered the deacon reflectingly, "did she give any reason fur her inquiries!" "No; she said she only asked from curiosi ty." Tne Deacon left the bank In deep thougni -He came to the conclusion that this "cu riosity" only veiled a deeper motive. . He no longer entertained a doubt that the widow had actually found a pot of gold in her cel lar, and appearances seemed to rnutcate mat its probable value was equal to five thousand dollars. The gold piece which she bad ex changed appeared to confirm this story. I rather think," said the deacon complac ently, "I can see into a millstone about as far as most people, a statement the literal truth of which I defy any to question, though as to the prime fact of people being able to see into a mill stone at all, doubts have now and then intruded themselves upon my mind. Noxl Sunday the widow Wells appeared at church in a new and stylish bonnet, which led to some such remarks as these- How much vanity some pecple have, to be sure!" How a woman that his to keep board ers for a living can afford to clash out with such a bonnet is more than I can tell. I should think she was old enough to know better. The last remark was made by a lady just six months younger than the widow, whose attempts to catch a husband bad hitherto proved utterly unavailing. "I suppose," continued the same young lady, "she is trying to catch a second husband with her finery. Before I would condescend to such means I'd I' drown myself. In this last able speech the young lady had unwittingly hit upon the true motive. The widow was intent upon catching Deacon Bancroft, and she indulgod in a costly bon net, not because he would be caught by her finerv, but because this would strength en in bis mind the idea that she had stum bled upon hidden wealth. The widow had calculated shrewdly, and the display had tbe effect she had anticipa ted. ' -. , r-. i . ' . ; Monday afternoon, deacon Bancroft found an errand that called him over to the widow's. It chanced to be about teatime. He was impart emeu to stay to tea, and, somewhat to his surprise, actually did. ' The polite widow, who knew the deacon's weak point, brought out her best mince pies ; a slice of which her guest, partook of with Best. .J-..' . ; - !' You'll take another piece, I know," said she persuasively. "Really, 1 am ashamed," said the deacon and he passed bis plate. "Tbe fact is," he said apologetically, 'your pies are so nice I don't know when to stop." . "Do you call these nice!" said the widow modestly. "I only call them common, . I can make mince pies when I set out to, but this time I didn't have such good luck as usual, "I shouldn't want anything bettet" said the deacon, emphatically. "Then I hope if you like them, you'll drop in to tea often. ' We ought to be more neigh' borly, deacon Bancroft." i Deacon Bancroft assented, and he meant what he said. The fact is, the deacon be gan to think the widow was a very charm ing woman. She was very comely, and he was such an excellen cook! Besides he had no doubt in his own mind that ahe was worths considerable sum of money. What objection could there be to her becoming Mrs. Bancroft? He brought this question before her one evening. The widow blush. ed professed to be greatly surprised in fact she had never thought of the thing in her life but, on the whole, had always thought highly of the deacon, and to cut short the matter, accepted hint. A month afterwards, she was installed as mistress of the deacon 's largn house, some DELAWARE, OHIO, MAY 28, 1858. "Pot of gold," she exclaimed in surprise; "I know of none." "But," said the deacon, disconcerted, "you know you asked me about whether the law could claim it!" "O, lor! deacon, I only asied from curi osity." "And was that the reason you made in quiries at the bank!" "Certainly. What else could it be!" The deacon went out to the born, and for about half an hour sat in silent meditation. At the end of that time, be ejaculated, as a closing consideration, "After all she makes good mince pies!" It gives me pleasure to state that the uni on between tne deacon ana wioow proven a very bappy one, although to the end of bis life, lie never could quite make up his mind about that "Pot of Gold." There is much of truth, as well as of that kind of philosophy which comes into every day requisition, helping to strengthen and brighten the ties of social affection, in the subjoined brief article taken from the "La dies Enterprise." "Will you! asked a pleasant voice. And the husband answered, "Yea my dear, with pleasure." It was quietly, but heartily said; the tone, tbe manner, the look, were perfectly natur al and very affectionate. We thought, how pleasant that courteous reply, how gratifying it must be to tbe wife. Many husbands of ten years' experience are ready e Dough with the courtesies of politeness to young ladies of tbeir acquaintance, while they speak with abruptness to the wife, and do many little things without considering them worth an a pology. The stranger, whom tbey may have seen yesterday, is listened to with dif ference, and although the subject may not be of the most pleasant nature, wilb a ready smile; while the poor wife, if ehe relates a domestic grievance, is snubbed or listened to with illy-concealed impatience. Oh ! bow wrong this is all wrong. Does she urge Bome request! "O, don t bother me!" cries her gracious lord and mas ter. Does she ask for necessary funds for "Susie's shoes or Tommy's hat !" "Seems to me you are always wanting money !" Is the handsome retort. Is any little extra de manded by his masculine appetite, it is or dered, not requested. "Look here, I want you to do so and so; just see that it's done;" and off marches Mr. Boor, with a bow of gentlemany polish and friendly sweetness for every casual acquain tance he may choose to recognize. When we meet with, guch thoughlessness and coarseness, our thoughts revert to the kind voice and gentle manner of the friend who said, " Yes, my dear, with pleasure." "I beg your pardon," comes as rapidly to bis lips when by a little awkwardness he has disconcerted her, as it would is the presence of the most fashionable stickler for eti quette. This is because he is a thorough gentle man who thinks hi wife in all things enti tled to precedence. He loves her best, why should he hesitate to show it; not in sickly baudlin attentions, but in prefering her pleas ure and honoring her in public as well as in private. He knows her worth; why should he hesitate to attest it! "And her husband he praiseth her," saith Holy Writ; not by fulsome adulation, not by pushing her charms into notice, but by speaking, as opportunity occurs, in a manly way, of her features. Though words may seem little things, and a slight attention, seem almost valueless, yet depend upon it, they keep the flame brighter especially if tbey are natural. The children grow up in a better moral atmosphere, and learn to respect their parents, as tbey see theiw respecting each other. Many a bof takes advantage of the mother be loves, be cause he. sees often the rudeness of his fath er. Insensibly be gathers lo his bosom the same habits, aud the thoughts and feelings they engender, and in his turn he becomes the petty tyrant. - Only his mother, why should he thank her! father never does. Thus the home becomes the seat of disor der nnd unhappifiess. Only for strangers are kind words expressed, and hypocrites go out from the hearthstone fully prepared to render justice, benevolence and politeness to any one but those who have the justest claims. Ah! give us the kind glance, the happy homestead, the smiling wife and cour teous children of the friend who said so pleasantly " Yes, my dear with pleasure." "ClEANINQ HOUSE." The local of the Cleveland Herald thus bewails the season lor house cleaning: The fiat has gone forth. Every warm day has caused a sbtifdder of apprehension, but though there were forboding remark's drop ped at intervals, the stern decree inexora ble as fate had not yet been pronounced. There is to be o revolution in household matters. Stoves must come down and car pels-come up. Curtains are to be taken off and windows taffenr ont.

There is much meas uring and: eonsttUaptiotf as tc What windows want new curtaffts, what room must have new carpet, and where tables shall be plac ed.' Adjurations not to forset the tobacco to go under tbe carpets and tbe tacks to nail them down, are frequent. There is an un pleasant sensation in tbe stomach at the thoughts of cold "scrap" dinners to be eaten; a sinking at heart at the prospect ot the; cheerless house in which every thing is turned "topsy-turvy;" an aching of the back in anticipation of the tour around the room on all fours, beating the "devil's taboo" with a hammer. Spring and Fall two very beautiful and poetic seasons in the country, no doubt, but suggesting anything but comfort or poe:ry in the city. Whenever the unhappy city Paterfamilias hears the approach of Spring commented on, he shudders with the appre hension at the ordeal ho has to go through.

Mr. Seward having heard this announcement, then nobly spoke a toU lows : . Weil, Mr. President, then the peopfo e4 nansas will have to come here under tbe Leavenworth constitution, and meet you on the first Monday in December next when you assemble here, and they will ask you to admit them as a free State. Have you any law that will prevent them coming here in that character! The Constitution ef the United States says that the people of tbe United States may petition, and they may petition for what they please. The people of Kansas can petition to be admitted as a State under the Leveawortb ceastittatioo. Then there is no obstacle in the way of tbeir coming here. Have yon any constitutional prohibition to prevent mo from voting for them! I shall vote for them as a free State, in spite of a thousand such laws as this. I tell you more, you yourself will vole for them too, a large number of you, in order to prevent tbe question going over to the next Congress, then already elected, because the next Congress will vote for them if yoa do not, and you will then seek to save for your selves the credit of stanching the wounds of bleeding Kansas, and establishing forever tbe cause of freedom. All this will happen unless you will in voke armies to suppress such proceedings by the people of Kansas. Well, I should like to see ehe bill introduced into Congress now, to levy an army or provide supplies for any army to control freemen and extirpate free men iu Kansas. Tou cannot een pass a bill to maintain your authority in Utah, a gainst pofygamists, without infinite trouble. I think I can take up the list of yeas and nays- aw Call them over, t think my hon orable friend from Pennsylvania Mr. Bigler) will vote aye, becaCbe he always stands squarely up to the Admimetratjow.

I tbink that my honorable friend from Califor nia Mr. GwinJ wotId gfre it b vote, for, like myself, he is apt to favor appropriations, and not very particular about the object to which they go. But when these responses are pronounced, in favor of tbe measure, there will be an. end. I rather think my honorable friend from Ohio Mr. Pugh will hesitate for instructions. My two excel friends from New Jersey would be found in the negative on that vote, because things are already eotniqg fe a bead at home.

The hon able Senatur from Illinois Mr. Douglasthe honorable Senator, from Michigan Mr. Stewart and the honorable Senator from California, Mr. Broderick,with their associ ates in the other House, and the honorable Senatur from Kentucky Mr. Crittenden,) and the honorable Senator from Tennessee, Sir. Bell. have stripped you bare of all pre tences to fairness in the maintenance of popular sovereignty. You will go before tbe people, no longer in the character of a party that balances equally : between free dom and slavery, but ia the detested charac ter of a party intervening for slavery against freedom. A party in power, in the first year of an Administration, is bold and violent. A par ty going out of power, at the close of an Administration, is timid and hesitating. You ' will search the summits of the mountains of New Hampshire, the' plains ol Mexico, and the privileged courts of St. James,- in Lon don, to find a candidate in I860 who was a gainst the conference Lecompton Kansas bill in 1353 ; and then, if these honorable as- , sociutes with whom I have labored for a short time so pleasantly, shall be found re maining in your communities, I think I can promise them and you, you will come to a much better understanding with them than you have now. Mr. Presideut, while I am speaking I learn that this bill, of so much evil omen, has passed the House of Representatives, aird that the battle there is ended. I confess to you, sir,- that it produces oA my mind, if some disappointment, no discouragement. I confess that I was prepared for this con clusion, and that now when it has come (for what remains to1 be done here is a matter of course) it is to me utterly indifferent. This I have knowii all the while; that this was to be our last defeat or our first victory. ' Ei ther result- would have been welcome. ' For Kansas, for freedom in Kansas, I have not so much concern as I have about the place where I sh-all sleep to-night, although my home is hard by the place where I stand. Kansas, sir, is the Cinderella of tbe Ameri can family. She is buffeted she is insulted; she is smitten and disgraced; she is turned out of the dwelling, and the door locked a gainst her. There is always, however, a fairy that takes care of the younger daughter, if it be the most honest, the must virtuous, the meekest, and the most enduring inmate of the domestic circle. - . . . Kansas will live and survive your persecu tion; she will live to defend protect and sus tain you J and the time will come when her elder sisters, now so arrogant, Louisiana, Viigiuia and .Pennsylvania, will repent all the injustice they have done ber. Her trials have not been imposed on ber for naught. She has been made to take the position, the dangerous and hazardous position, of being tho first to vindicate practically by labor, by toil, through deso lation, through suffering and bloood, that freedom is better for States and for the Republic than slaver'. Sho will endure the trial nobly, and she has been the first, so will be the last to contend and suffer. Every other territory that shall come into the Union hereafter, profiting, by the sufferings and atonement of Kansas, will come into the Union a free State. Sir, this unnecessary strife draws to an end. The effort to make slave States within our domain la against reason, end against nature. The trees do not spring up- from- tbe seeds and roots scattered by the parent trunks in tbe forest more naturally than new Free States spring up from the roots projected and i - T tars do not more surely form themselves out of the Nebulas in the recesses of space and come oat to adorn the blue expanse above us, new states etiape themselves out of the ever developing elements of our benign civili zation, and rise to take their places in this .great political coulseil ation.

Senator Wade, in his great speech on the I4th,-made some capital hits, and none bet ter than the following, tracing the similarity between a singular race of beings that lived in ancient times, and the fossil remains of a siiOTjaf race of people whom we discover in the United States, in this age of the world. Every one will agree with the Senator, bow ever, that like the Indian tribes, they are fast disapperarmg from the ace of the earth. Says Mr. Wade: "How have you done it! You have done it because you had a general bond of intre cst uniting you, lying you together as if an imated by one sol. What was the inter est of one was the interest of another. You are forced on the same platform, all acting te one end. You found the Democracy of the North divided in various pursuits, labor ing in thei Varirowr avocations, with very little time to stsdy this problem of politics; and yo have aiwaya been able! to seduce enough of us over to you, to Carry your government along, t know that genllenveo smile at this; but lam compelled by troth' to state facts here that I wish I cotrld Hde from the world. . It is a rottenness at the North that you do not have. It is disreputable to us, but I am compelled to admit it. Your allies, the doughfaces of the North, in my judgment, are the most despicable of men. The modern doughface is not a cborarter peculiar to the age in which we now live, but you liud traces of bim at every period of the world's history. He is void of pride; he is void of self-respect; he is actuated by a mean groveling selfishness that would sell his Maker for a price. Why, sir, when old Moses, under tbe immedkttv inspiration of God Almighty, enticed a Whole nation of slaves, and ran away, not to Canada, but to old Canaan, I suppose that Pharaoh and all tbe chivalry of old Eygpt, denounced bim as a wawt fortune Abolitionist. fLaughter J.

In the days of our own revolution, when Wash ington and bis noble associates were carry ing on that struggle to establish justice, and to secure the blessings of liberty to them selves and tbeir posterity, they met with the same class of men in tbe admirers of George III. and Lord North.

As is generally known, there Is a Vein of coal located above the. water level in the Broad Mountain, about seven m'le from this Borotrgb and near H ckselervtlle , which for twenty-one years has been on fire. The vein, "which contains excellent white ash coal, is some forty feet iu thickness. The orimn of the fire is attributed to a couple of miners who having some work to perlorm in the drilt in the depth of winter, built a fire they being cold in the gangway. The flames destroying the prop timbers, were car ried, by a strong current, rapidly along tho passage, and the fire communicating to the coal, nil subsequent effurta to extinguish it were ineffectual. The men were cut off from escape, and were, undoubtedly, soff. tea- ted to death. Their remains were never found. A few dava since we ascended the the mountain at the fire, and were much in terested in examining tho effect of tbe fire upon tho surface. The course is from west to cast, and where the vein is nearest the surface, the ground is- for tbe space of several hundred feet sunken into deep pita, and the stones exhibit evidence of having been exposed to the action of intense heat, every vestige of veeeralion hae been blasted. It is a desert track in the midst of smiling fertility. The ground in soma plates was almost too warns for the hand to rest upon it, while steam from water heated by inter nal fire rose from every pore. The fire has evidently extended for several handred yards from the place whore it originated, and finds vent and air to coMiou its progress-, at tne nits to which we have alluded.

Wright, in a letter to the Liber ator, thus describes the great clock in the Cathedral of Strasburg: "The priests and military have retired, and I am now sitrtng in a chaiC facing the gigantic clock from the bottom to the toy not less than 100. feet and about thirty feet wide and fifteen feet deep. Around me are mary strawgersy waiting to see the working of the clock as it strikes the hour of noon. Every ee is upon the clock. It now wants five minutes of twelve1. The clock has strsck ml tbe people are gone except a few whom the scstorf, or head man with the wand and sword, is conducting round the buildif;. The clovb bj struck in this way the dial is some twenty feet from the fl Rr, on each side of which is a cherub, or little boy with a mallet, am) etef the dial is a small bell The cherub-on the left strikes the first quar ter, tlat on the right the second quarter. Some fifty feet over the dial, in a large niche. is a huge figure of Time, with a bell in bit left and a scythe in bis right hand. In front stands a figure of a young mm with a mat let, who strikes the third quarter, on tne bell in the band of Time, and then turns and glides, with a plow step round behind Time, then cornea out an old man, witn a mallet, and places himself in front of him. As the hour of twelve comes, the old man raises his mallet, and deliberately strikes twelve times on tho bell, that echoes thro' this building, and is heard all round the region of the church. The old man glides alowly behind Father Time, and the youug man comes on readily to perform his part, as the time comes round again. 8mo -as the old man has struck twelve and disappeared, an other set of machinery is put in motion a- bout twenty feel higher sua. It is thus: there is a high cross with the imago of Christ on it. The instant twelve has struck one, of the apostles walks out from behind, comes in front, turns, facing the cross, bows, and walks on around to his place. As he does so, another comes eut n front, turns, bows, and passes ia. So twelve apostles, figures large as life, walk round, bow, and pass on. As tbe last ap pears, an enormous cock, perched on the pinnacle of the clock, Blowly flaps its wings, stretches forth Ks neck, and crows three times, ao loud as to.be heard out side of the church to some distance, and so naturally to be mistaken for a real cork. Then all is silonl as death. No wonder this clock is the admiration of Europe.

This ia attributable, in a great measure, to the late important discov eries made by Mr. Lengstroth and otaers. As soon aa those discoveries are thoroughly known, bee raising will become as gnral- aa any other branch of production. Wh se men learn that it is just about as cheap to raise honey a not to raise it, and far cheap er than to buy It. they will no longer avoid - tbe business aa something involving a great' outlay ef titne labor and patience, and- r meager return of profit. Mr. E. T. Sturtevant, of East Cleveland, -Cuyahoga County, Ohio, has nearly two hon--dred thrifty stocks, and hi opinions and ex perience are entitled to the highest respect. From a letter recently written by him, ww make the following extra cts: u I have long grieved at the neglect and-' cruelty suffered by the honey be through the Ignorance of mankind; and at one time I had almost concluded that there wa no possible remedy.
