Raymond Warren was a "nice" man everybody's clever fellow, as I beard a pub lic man once remark, a very extensive of fice,' with numerous duties, never discharged. Raymond used to sit in the chimney-corner late on a winter's night, because he was too shiftless to get ready for bed. But after a while the tire burned low, the glow on the embers faded, and it grew cold in the chimney-corner; then Uaymoud became chilly, aod be would sneak to rest, where his wife perhaps had been for several hours, endeav oring to recover from (he severe tat'g.ro ot a day's work, into which had been- erowded the greater part of her husband's- legitimate fifties. Raymond owned a large farm, left him by his father. It was- good land, but tbe fences were not in- repair,' and every body's cattle roamed thfoeghthe fields, aud Raymond's crops-were nut sufficient to yield (he family a ire cent support. The farm bad once been well stocked, but for want of proper etteruw th; cattle became poor, tlje sheep were never folded, even iu the most rigorous weather, and- many of their died1. Tbe wool was never properly sheared and washed, and when taken- to market it would iiot bring the market price. Had it not been for Raymond's wile, who was- a Imbr ues wouiSD; the family must often have suf fered for the cnoimou necessaries of life. Raymond's chores were rarely ever ae ded to by himself; but wss a neighbor sick, uo man was ever more williug to work in his place. He was refitd upon aa the man who would always neglect his own iutcrcaU to look after those of somebody e.'se. He could never set-himself at his own frrm- worn, but be was considered aa excellent hand, when, to oblige a neighbor, he took a job in bis field. It was a bleak morning in mid-winter. Raymond Warren's wife was in the barn yard foddering the cattle Raymond was in bed. Tbe light of a brisk tire which his wife bad built, shone directly iu his face. It awakened him: the room was warm, and Raymond was persuaded by its inviting ap pearance to arise, lie sat down by the fire place in his shirt sleeved, aud waited for his wife to come in and get luin some break fast. As he warmed hiss feel he felt that he had reason to congratulate himself on his happy situation, aud he said to himself. Taint every man's got such a wife as I have. Here thu's made a gocd fare, and 1 II but the chores are all done." I'he chores were done, aud Raymond had scare ;-!y finished his soliloquy when, the useful wile hastened to (he uru-place (o ; warm her hands, which had become aViur-' ou!bly chilled by (no coiu nana.e oi me pitchfork, with trliich she had been throw ing hay aud 6traw to the cattle. It might be supposed that these occurren ces took place eailyin the morning not so. It was ten o'clock when Kayaioud arreu lull his bed. His wile had been sewing lor two hours before site prepared her breakfast, then she urged Raymond for' an hour longer to get up. lie maue lair promises, but tett (hem all uniululled. bhe waited until it was nine o'clock, and then knowing her husband's easy habits, and ashamed to have t he cattle unfed at that hour of the day, she determined to attend to their wants her self. ' Raymond's first salutation to her aa she stood by the fire was, 'I wish I bad some tea, Sally; but never mind, you've put the things away a little warm water, with a little milk and sugar in it, will do just as well; and while you re a- bout it. you may get me a little piece of bread; but just as you choose: no matter a- bout it, anyhow. 'Taint every man's got such a women for a wife." She might have answered, "It is not every woman that has such a husband." But she knew Euch remarks would only make bitter feelings, and though fatigued with tbe violent exercise she had taken, she went cheerfully and prepared her easy, good- natured husband a cup of tea and a slice of toast, and then asked him if be would not cut some wood. "To be sure I will," was his response. His breakfast over, be took up his axe, mounted the wood pile, and cut a half-a-dozen sticks, when along came a neighbor, who wanted Raymond to accompany him (o a saw mill, about two miles distant, and assist in loading unon a sled some boards which had been sawed for him: of course Raymond went aud his wife was compelled to cut wood enough to keep the bouse warm until tbe following day. Mrs. Warren was in appearance a feeble woman,but she bod endured hardship which would have destroyed the constitution of one much more robust. Day after day her strength failed, yet bhe made no complaint. Raymond saw that she grew pale, and was olten disturbed with fears in regard to her, but be was too easy to mention tho subject, and the useful wile became more aud more feeble; until she was seized with a violent cough. Raymond was one day thoughtful enough to speak to the village doctor as he passed their house with bis ponderous medi cine portmanteau on his arm, and the benev olent gentleman, who had some knowledge of Raymond's peculiar tailings, left the wo man an innocent tincture, aud forbade ex posure, to the cold atmosphere under any circumstances, and also declared that her complaint was of a character very much ag gravated by severe exercise. For a tew days Raymond remembered the doctor's counsel, and as he had respect for the physician, be obeyed him as nearly as his constitutional failings permitted, but soon again was tbe wife obliged to chop wood, and feed the cattle, and taking a se vere cold, she faded as would fade a summer rose in a frigid climate. '-" When Raymond Warren's house was des olate aud his fireside cheerless, he saw what had been his great error during the two years of hiB married life, and he mourned bis wilo deeply it must be said in his favor. both as a helpmate and a companion. He rented out his farm and managed to exist 'easily' for one year; but he was a domestic man he was not satisfied with a childless widower's solitary lot, and he began to look about for a second helpmate and companion. In a few months he took to bis home a wo man; who he confidently felt would fill the place left vacant by bis first wife. Sadly was Raymond disappointed. A few weeks e lapsed and he fell into hia old habits, with complete abandon. Leaving bis own work in a neglected state, he "Worked dilligcnlly one day to assist a neighbor getting wood to his house, and he returned to his home, late at nicht, hungry and fatigued, expecting that his wife would have for his refreshment an inviting supper. In this hope he bad re fused to take supper with the neighbor whom he had assisted. Poor fellow! tne Kitcnen where was to have been his excellent sup per, attended by a smiling wife, was cold and unoccupied. No frugal board was there, and Mrs. Warren was in bed. Raymond Wktt Mj was astonished, .but too good1 Matured lo co m plain, and silently he ventured to explore the cupboard on which to satisfy tbe gnaw ings of his appetite. Not a crutrrb- was there. It was etidvB. (bat hia wife de signed that he should go-to bed supperless, and supperless to bed he did go, grieving se riously oser Ms hard kt. He had never be fore been- so badly treated, and he thought it iudeed distressing, but yet bis disappoint ment was not sad enough to- revolutionize his- constitutional good nature, and wi'hotrt a- mutter he fell sound asleep-. Raymond W arreu did ryot bear cbafiticleer salute the morring, as it ' dawned after the night of his grievious disappointment. It was spring but he heard them not; yet he heard his wite, who had risen before the sue, call him: "Air. Warren-, here I've fceew for an' fJoor Mr the cold-. Tire wood's all burned. It's I Hire I bad- some cut. Is you want auy breakfast, you had butter gel up." Was Raymond dreaming? Was this a voiee of reproach- tirat came to Imw in- his sleep, wnh recollections of the wife that bad gone before him to tbe spirit laud I Not So it was a voice from the wife that dwelt with him in tirrs- sphere of fcjtisence,- that cautc to- reuMitd him oi d wios not discharged crpagt the performance of which depuRiled the satisfaction" ei those cfesifes- which hwi intruded visions of ,lcas:s upon his hours of rest.- All this he felt, still he did not, offer to leave bis couch. Raymond Warren','' again" saJJUfje voice, "yow left me yesterday without wood, to help a eeighbor get wood lor his- wile, and you went to bed last uight without your sup per. You'll not get a bite to eat in tlrM house till you bring me wood- to cook rt vvith." There's plenty t-f elirpe1 said Riymowd in palliation, rising on- his cKjow as Ik spoke. "Gel up, then, and bring them into the house," said the resolute wile. "I did rot know you when w? were married, but I kuow you uow. I know what killed your first wile. You want to wake a slave of me. I'll attend to my duties; aud if you don't do your chores, tne cattle may starve, and you'll never get a bite to eat in this house uuloss you lake it uucooked,' if you don't cut wood yourself or get somebody to do it for you." j Raymond 6tarted bolt upright, and it was not many minutes before ho was at the wood piie. Dilligcnlly did he work until he j had cut an armful, when like a dutiful hus band, lor the first time iu his life, he carried it into the kilcheu. His wife made uo allusion to what had passed between tlicm, and Raymond, al though burning with curiosity lo kuow where she had Icarued what bhe had revealed to hiui, dared not commence the conversation iu relation to it. The train of ills it might revive was iearful lo the easy mau's mind. His breakfast over, forgetlul of its lessoii, careless Raymond wandered away from home his noee3ary uioruing labors iu the farm yard unattended to, and his wood pile tin visited. He returned home at noon, strong in the faith that ho should sit down to a good dinner, because he was one of those men who think a wife should always give her husband a good dinner, whether she have anything to cook or not. Mrs. Warren had enough to cook, but nothing to cook with : however, much to Riymond's satisfac tion, when he entered hia home he lound the table spread, and he knew be should soon be invited to take a seat near it. When the iuvilation came he hastened to his accustomed seat, lifted a cover from a dish that he supposed contained meat; and1 truly there was meat, but just as it came from the butcher's. Raymond was not a cannibal: he looked at his wife inquiringly: she appeared lo be waiting patiently to be served. He tilled the cover of another dish: there were potatoes just as they had been dug from the earth. All the dishes that usually contained victuals were. cover ed. Raymond grew suspicious, aud he lifted the covers hastily. There uraa bread, as it had come from the tray; there Were turnips, thai had never been under the influence of fire; there were apples nicely sliced for sauce, and there were numerous other edi bles, but none of them could Raymond eat. He turned for consolation to a cup of tea bis wile had deposited near liU plate. There were tca-leavca floating in the cup, but the tea looked remarkably pale; nevertheless, Raymond by force of habil blew it vigorous ly to prepare it for bis palate. But when he put it to lips he found that lie had wasted his breath; for the water was aa cold as when it came from the spring. Raymond was not a hasty man. He push ed bach his chair deliberately, and thought aloud: "In the name of Heaven, what docs this mean!" Mrs. Warren, whose countenance during this scene had worn a sober aspect, now smiled pleasantly, and answered: "Tbe victuals were-on the stove at the usual time." "It's strange they were not cooked," said Raymond. "Not at all," replied Mrs. Warren; "there was no wood to cook them with." In an instant Easy Warren then saw what a "moral" there was iu his novel dinner, and with a keen appetite, ho went to work on tbe wood-pile. He took his dinner and sup per together that day, and he remembered that Mrs. Warren said: "Now, Raymond, whenever you leave me without wood, you must eat victuals that have been cooked on a cold stove." Many women would have stormed and scold ed, but Mrs. Warren knew there was a bet ter wi) to correct her easy husband's care- Icsncs3 or shiftlessncss, as the reader pleas cs. One day there was no flour in tbe bouse. and Raymond was about to go with some neighbors to a town-meeting, when bis wife hid his best coat, and reminded him of the empty flour barrel. Another day, bis corn was to be gathered, when a neighbor desir ed him to assist him with his horses and wagon. It was a neighbor who olten receiv-, ed favors, but seldom rendered them; yet Easy Warren could not refuse him. But, when he went to hitch bis horses before his wagon, he found that one of the wheels was missing. Of course the neighbor was disap pointed. In the afternoon, when Raymond expressed a wish to draw his corn his wife told him where he could fimd his lost wagon- wheel. Thus was Easy Warren's household man aged, until he began to realize practically what the error of his life had been . People said: "Warren's farm looks much better than it did some years ago." Mrs. Warren never interfered with Raymond's business, except when he neglected it, and then she never found fault or scolded, but took occa sion to show his neglect to him in a manner which impressed him with bis injustice to his own interests.

Iris-wile employed a neighbor to make flic necrsaary repairs. His wife tooithe paper, eiriread;: she knew the state ot the market, and to ce-lige her, Raymond had his grain rn raw ket when th price was hiliest. one peo ple said: "Easy Warren is a hen pecked &oteBaad.ft JDut be knew belter; and often boasted that his wife was more of a "tusirress crarrr' than he was. They bad lived tcrgefker peaeeably some years, when, one day, Raymond WS3 in good humor thinking over bis prosperous condition, and he told his wife: "I am a woman's- righu man- of the trae grit. They rrwy say J yoo- wea the breeches, if they please; I an satisfed to have you do the thiukinijjor, the firm. And, now that 1 see what " fool 1 have bceu, I must make ap- form? eatly shiftlessncss." He did innjcc up for his early tftifritessfJessi and muter 3 yutlicious wife's training, he became fnduswfous, hBStead- of E-ucy' War ren. Mrs. Warren had the correct idea of wo-man'-rights afiJ woin-arr's wrongs. We commend her management to those who' have "easy husbands." Especially do we com mend it to (hose unfortunate women who have earned themselves the opprobrious title of "SCOIDS." St,.VrCi WOltDSASD PliKASi:& A restore recently delivered in Carlisle by the Rev. A. Mursell contains the following arsvtising and instructive passage: The point tec which I have next to direct attention, is manliness in speech. There are many yotfrvg men Who consider it essen tial to manliness that they should be masters of slang. The sporting world, like its brother, the swell mob, has a language of its own; brx this dog English extends- far beyemd the sporting world. It comes wilh its Iiordo3 ot barbarous words, threatening the entire extinction of genuine English. Now just listen- for a moment to oar fast young untn,er tire ape ot a fast young man, who thinks to be a man he must spoak in the dark phraseology ut slang. If he does any i.'iing on hia own responsibility, he does Sow his on "hook." If he see? anything remark ably goo:! he calls it a "stunner," the super lative of vh:ch is a "regular stunner." It a man is requested to pay a taverir bill, he is ubked to "stand dJDi." If he meets a sxv-age-lookiug dog he calls it aa "ugly custom er." If he meets an eccentric man he calk hint a "rummy old cove." A sensible iiwn is a "chap that's up to snuff." , Our young triend never scolds, but "blows up;" nsver pays, but "stumps up;" never is fatigued, but is "used up." He has no hat, but shelters his head benath a "tile." He wears no neckcloth, but surrounds his throat wilh a "choaker." He lives nowhere, but there ia some place where he 'hangs outi He never goes away or withdraws, but fe "boha" he "slopes"' he "mizzles" baj "makes tracks" lie "walks his chalks" he "makes himself scarce" he "cuts his sticks' or what is ibe same thing, be "cuts his lucky." The. highest compliment tha( you can pay him is to tell him he is a "regular brick." He does not profess to be brave, but he prides himself on being "plucky." Money is a word which he has forgotten, but be talks a good deal about "lin,': and "the needful," "the rhiuo"' and "the ready." When a man speak3 he "spouts," when he holds his peace he "shuts up;" when he is humiliated, Im is "taken down a peg or two," and "made lo sing small." Now a good deal ot this slang is harmless, many of these terms are, I think, very expressive, yet there is much slang that is objectionable. -For example, as Archdeacon Hare ob serves iu one of his sermons, the word "gov ernor," when applied to a father, is to be reprehended. I have heard a young man call his father the "relieving officer. Does it nut betray on the part of young men great ignorance of the parental and filial relation ship, or a great contempt for them! Their father. is to such young men merely a gover nor merely the representative of authority Innocently enough the expression is used by thousands of young men who venerate and love their parents, but only think of it, and I am sure you will admit that it is a cold, heartless, word when thus applied, and one that forthwith ought to be abandoned. The new hotel at Cairo, which went down with a grstid crash and splash into the flood, cost nearly one hundred thousand dollars. During the present term of the U. S.

I Boa't Dance - A plain unlettered man came from the back country in the stale of Alabama, to fuscaloosa, and on the Sabbath went early to church. He had been accustomed' to at tend" meetings in school bouses and private dwellings where each one appropriated to himself the first seat which he found unoc cupied. He selected there a convenient slip, and awaited patiently (ho .-ainhli ng nf the congregation. The services commenced. Presently the music of a full toru-d organ burst upon bis astonished ear, he had never heard one before. At the same lime -the gentleman who owned the slip came up the isle with his lady leaning upon his arm. As he approached the door of the slip, he motioned for the countryman to come out ii order to give place to the lady. This movement the countryman did nut compre hend; and from the situation of the gentle man and lady, associated as it was in his mind with the music, he immediately con cluded that a cotilion, or a French contra dance, or some other dance, was intended. Rising partly from his Beat, he said to the gentleman who was still beckoning to him, 'Excuse me, sir excuse mu( if you plcass Don't Dance! Wavs altd tfieana.

"It's a mouse,1' said Pat, "and 1 will leive it to the first traveler that comes along for a pint of whisky." "Agreed," said the landlord. Mike soon arrived, and to bitil was the appeal made.

All these things were done when the nven- were in a- t?cie state, slid- ia full view of all live n-ei "hours-. At the barn they laid tbe body on tbe floor a-nd- began to empty the teililing of its contents,-which done, they took a heavy whip, known as tbe "black snake" whip, ui.d com menced whipping the corpse, calling upon it in French to "get Up".' Tuey then closed (he scene by a fight between- themselves. How long they fought is not known, but the narks on (heir bodies show how desperate it was. They afterward took tbe body of their sister and placing it in a wagon cover ed it with straw and left it. Arming them selves with pitchforks they started though the woods toward Gratiot. Through the rain and the darkness, stark naked, they made their way, and at midnight arrived, bleed-i-By, cold and exhausted, at a Mr. Pulcfeer's, re porting there that they were pursued by their neighbors, who sought to kill them, and that Jhe Lord had instructed them to flee lor succor.. Pulcher took them in, puttrrerB to bed, where they fell asleep, and then sor inuned the neighburs to his assistance. They slept until morning, and in the morn ing were pursuaded to dress, and then relat rlejillhejrjtorythebrother Augewte doing the most of the talking. The brothers were taken iu irons to Mt.

Some are silling list lessly, ad with f prin indifference to the proceedings, in their easy chairs,' with both feet, it may be, upon their elegant carved oak desks.

What with this and the conversation going on about the hall, in ev ery direction, a pretty good idea ol Babel may bo formed. Every few minutes the Speaker's hammer is vtguioosly but vainly plied, for the purpose ol restoring order; and ten times an hour the clear voice ot the Speaker is heard above the tumult of tongues requeating members to resume their seats, and admonishing them that the conversation is too loud in the hall, and that he cannot entertain any motion or proceed to business until oider is restored.

We ffad in the Maine Farmer a Fr'ze Es say by Mrs. H. Winchester, of Brewer, read before the Maine State Agricultural Society at Bangor, September, 18j7. It contains so much information on this subject, that we think its perusal will benefit out readers r I have been practically acquainted with; butler-making for more than tweuty years, and hope I shall be able lo give some plain directions for making good butter, which wili be valuable to yutrog housewives f whMe those who know more about rt than I do, will-be induced, by my example, to coirrmunicars the knowledge to the public for the benefit of others. I believe it is as essy to make good butter as) that of an inferior quality. In the first pVafe, to stake good butter, we must hsve good mills. More depends on the quality of the milk than many would suppose. Some" cows give richer mills then1 others-. 7W cows wft?cb give p jo mils) should be sold to the butchers, snd their places supplied by good- eoesv They ahould bavs pure water' and- rich grasses, or fodder, irr abtntdance, be cause the milk is flavored by the food. Tur nips or garlic impart their peculiar taste to thc milk, and so do all kinds of foodon tffcicfj the row feeds, (hough-some taint it mure than' other. In winter if cows sre fed on poor hay, thf oHlt will be poor, snd- tbtt butter while aud of inferior quality. The excel lence of Jum better is owMrg' to tbe rich, young grasses wheihrare svabundant at that lime. The farmer should see thai bis cows are supplied wrcfr tire best of food, if he would have good1 batter. Cora fodder, car ruts, pumpkins, beets and Indian meal, or shorts, are good for fall and winter fes&Ag; It is not ueccssary to maf Chat ths sails: room ami dishes should be clean; for all ad mit it. But every one does not know how imp r taut ii is to have pure sir in the dairy room to see that it is as far removed ss pos sible from all impure odors, or anything that' ' will taint the atmosphere, and thus injure the butter. The milk room should be clean, cool dry, airy, snd well ventilated: Flies may be excluded by a thin gauze screen in the windows. The temperature should range ' from tbirty-five to sixty degrees, aa cream separates best in a' cool place. I find that milk which is set tu rise in a hut room, will very soon become sour, will not yield so much" cream, aod will make soft oily butter, which will soon become rancid. The dairy should front the north, and be shaded by trees so as to admit tbe ligln and air, but exclude the' suushiuc and the beat. I am uow using "Davis' Patent World's Fair Churn." I like it because it churns' euwily, and- separates the butter from the milk quicker and easier than any other churn I know of. The churn should be soaked over night. Put in a quart of boiling wafer, cfiurn it owe minute, ther draw it e9 end pour a pailful ot cold waiter into' tbe churn to' re main for five minutes, and youv ehurn is ready for use, As soon as yoa bve done with it, wash it weir, dry it, mtti put it in1 a dry place. Cbwn-mg should be done early irr the morn ing, while it is cool. Rapid churning is not tbe best; but if the cream is acid, and of the' right temperature, it will require less than) half an hour. The temperature of cream to churn best shou!dbe sixty-two degrees. Cream- must be slightly acid before it will make good but ter; aud iu coot weather it must be put in a warm place for that purpose. 1 rrever scald1 my milk, or cream because it gives the but ter a flavor which I do not like, and it is use less labor, t use tin- pans to set my milk, be cause they are light to handle, and are easily kept sweet and clean. Milk should be skim med before if becoirtes acid to the least de gree. The first cream that rises hr the best, both in flavor and1 color. The milk should not be set more than 24 hours, and it is bet ter if skimmed in 13 hours, as what little might be lost In rfue-ntrry would 6e ga-irred irr quality. -Recently f measured out sixteen' gallons of milk , set it 24 hours, skimmed nine? quarts of cream from it and churned it, and churned trine pound of butter, tlm ob taining nine ounces of taHer (yen geilon of milk. 'Fire erearo should be kept n stone or glass jars, or well glazed or enamel ed ware, as the acid ecweuVcorrayor coarse glazings am imparts poison to the cream. Too much care cannot be taken to have our food pure from mineral poisons. I wish our housewives understood this matter better than they do. Tbe cream should1 oot (re covered except by gauze, which will not ex clude the air. I put an ounce of finesalt in to a three-gallon jar when I begin tar Sll if with cream, and stir the cream we morning snd evening'. As soon as the butter has come hard, 1 draw off the buttermilk, and remove the but ter Krt9 a long wooden tray. Than 1 press out the buttermilk with hard-wood clappers, and wen in, by weight, vtm and one-eighth ounce of fine salt to tbe pound. Placing tbe butter in one end of the tray, which is slightly rateed so as to drain it, 1 leave it for the salt to-combine with it, ootil ths next mrnrng. t then work it over thoroughly (bot not long enough (a beat it or make it like salve) and mix in two ounces of white su gar K ten pounds of baiter. If it is for present use, I make it into halls and stamp it. But if intended ta be kept for winter f pM it down solid into stone jars, sprinkling a very little salt on tbe surface, and covering it wilh a thick fine cloth, put ou the lid, and place the jar in Ciol place. It is better to fill the jar wilh oue churning; but, if not able to do so, pack in each churning solid, and yoa exclude tbe air till you get the jar full. If it is kept long while or sent to sea, pour a little melted butter over the top of the jar, before yoa put va tbe cloth. 1 have put down butter in this way in Septem ber, and kept., it tilt the next June as good) as newly-churned butter. It is very important to ha goai salt to flse, fof 60M0 salt gives tbe butter an an pleasant taste and prevent it from keeping well. 1 wish it la be noticed particularly that I do not wash my bolter, trot allow any water,- hot ot f old, to be put in trie creara to raise or lower the temperature when I churn. It la Very injurious to it. It washes out the flavor and sweetness trots it, snakes it insip id, and sootr turns it rancid. Tbe water which remain in it injures it more than ths buttermilk. I do not betters H is possible to preserve hotter well fot any length of time that has been washed. Some one should supcrirfterAd tbe da-fry and se that sll is done as it should be. Galls ob Eorsss.
