Among the many dangers by which t lie rising generation are surrounded, we know of t.one no dangerous as bad company. How many promis ing youths who bid fair to become exemplary members iu society, have been allured from the path of virtue .mil plunged into the path of vice and i ifamy by associating with immoral and unprincipled persons. If we were to approach the poor inebriate ;nd ask him how lie became addicted ti his miserable practice he would, no doubt, tell you that his first etep from, the path of virtue was bad com pany.

Visit the should only pell for 06 2-3 cents on the dollar, making an expenditure of Iwenty-one inillior.s in all. What have they got in return for this? Why, first, a Railroad 800 miles long, which will, as soon as completed, be worth at least the twenty-one mil lions expended in its construction. Secondly, eight millions of acres ol land, which, if sold at 813 per acre, the amount for which the lands of the Illinois Central road sold, would be worth 12,000,000. Here then is 120 millions acauired at an actual outlay gallows tree and hear the penitent of one million, supposing the road, when completed, should be immedi ately sold by the company forthc pay ment of the 20 millions of indebted ness. The reader will doubtless be astounded at this result; but let him examine it carefully, and see if he can detect any fallacy in it. If, however, the foregoing calcula tion should be thought by any to par take of the fabulous, let us make one (bat will be unreasonably small, and see what will be thought of it. Suppose the road should cost i30,000 pr. mile, which is 30 per cent more than the first road ever built in the South cost, when men were inexperienced in the business. This would add ten mil- iiuppose, ttien, JU millions ol a pr. cent stock is issued. The purchasers of this stock would pay into the treas ury of the Company jut one million of dollars.

The Saviour was there. The Lord's spirit was powerfully displayed, and went from heart to heart all through the church. It worked upon me three or four nights. The pastor of the church came to me and asked me if I would not like to get religion and serve God. J answered "No, I didn't care about it just then," and told him a lie, for 1 did; I felt as though 1 wan ted religion.

After church that night as we were going ho'tne the minister lived up our way I made some remarks about those backsliders, saying to him that if I were in their place I would come out like a man and seek religion over again.

Plant out Tomatoes toward the end of thi month for a late crop, and cut them down until the early patch is giving out; and let them go to fruit, and you will have plenty until frost. Sow Cabbage seed the latter part of this month, for fall and winter use. Flat Dutch and Ilergen are the best. Try, also, the genuine "Buncombe" seed, if you can obtain it. Transplant Ijcrks they will be fit for use all next winter. If you are raising Gnions from the black seed, thin out the rows and transplant.

There was liftle said on the way, but he told me to keep looking for the Saviour; that I was trying to get religion and had let everybody know it; the Lord was willing to bless me at any time or anywhere. 1 was riding along, singing a hymn, and in an instant I felt as though 1 was bless ed. I am sure I give up my soul and body. The first thing I knew, God spoke peace to my soul. It came like a shot it came like lightning, when 1 was not anticipating it, and the first thing I said, "Glory! God blessed me." My friend said he knew it, he bait the shock too. We rode a gainst a stone fence two orthree times, and came near tumbling on theground. The change was surprising, the trees looked as if they had been blessed, everything appeared to have been blessed, even the horse and wagon. I felt strong. I could almost fly.

All of sudden, some fine morning, Mary turns ui missing ami John also.
