There is no necessity to offer an apolo

ry, we ought to thank you for having selec

' Now, Madame,' added the young until,
in a timid ui.d hesitating milliner, ' il only
remains for me to inquire the name of my
young sister in this work of kindness.'
' Mademoiselle Anna Revial.'
A cry of astonishment broke from the
stranger ' The daughter of M. Revial, ol
Bordeaux, who lost bis fortune by trusting
in a friend, and died of grief I'
'Alas! you have but too truly stated the
case. How does il happen that you are ac
quainted with these facts V
' 1 am Jules Bursac,' said the young man,
in it voice scarcely audible.
Anna grew pale, and went nnd placed
herself near her mother's scat. A mourn
ful silence succeeded for a short time, and
it was Jules who broke it.
'Ah! Madame,' said be suddenly rising
' I perceive Hut I yesterday sent you my re
nunciation of a life of happiness. This

He held up a little ring set round with
tornuites
' It is Anna's ring 1' said Madame Ilevial
with surprise
' Yes, mother,' said Ann, quite confined ;
' 1 was obliged to tvell it to renl ice the mo

The Poetry of Geology.
Those who never look fqr poetry exeef

If it does not breathe the very spirit of p.'

Straw Cutters.
In n very great proportion of the barns

none one half of which arc never used,

Fre3h Air.
Man acts strangely. Although a current
of fresh air is the very life of his lungs, he
seems indefatigable in the exercise of his
inventive powers to tleprive himself of this
heavenly blessing. Thus he carefully clos
es every cranny of his bed chamber against
its entrance, and he prefers that his lungs
should receive the mixed diluvium from his
cellar aud larder, and form a patent little
modern aquarius in lieu of it. Why should
men bo so terrified at the admission o.f the
nighi air into his apartments! It is nature's
ever-flowing current and never carries the
destroying angel with it, See how soundly
the delicate wren and tender little robin
sleep under its full and immediate influence,
aud how fresh and vigorous, joyous (hey
rise amid the surrounding dew-drops of the
morning. Al'hough exposed all night long
to the air of heaven, tho lungs are never
out of order, and this wekuuw by their dai

Jlcsolced, That ns the press exerts a pow

public opinion, Editors nnd publishers of
lie.vspapers uud periodicals be ropectfully
invited to continue their efforts in aiding
the temperance reformation and in promot
ing a healthful public sentiment in regard
to the observance of the law.
Resolved, That we recommend to the
friends of temperance in cuch town of this
State, to appoint a committee of one or more
to md and sustain the omcers ol the law in
carrying into execution tbe law prohibiting
the sale of intoxicatfng liquors.
Resolved, 1 hat Ilia benefits which the re
cent License Law is designed lo secure to
an injured community cannot be realized,
and that the clandestine sales ol liquor and
the appalling evils ol intemperance cannot

the law, and consequently do nut teel bound
by a sense of duty to refuse to sell in viola

expected to sell intoxicating liquor clandes

for tho final success of the Temperance
cause must depend upon the broadest nnd
most ellectual instruction ol the mind in
the State, and as a chief means of effecting
it, wc recommend to the Superintendents
and Teachers of the Sunday Schools of the
State the utmost zeal, and energy in their
instruction to their classes.
The following from the New York Tri
bune is apropos to the subject :
We think our influential and public
apiritcd citizens are remiss in performing
their diitv to the Political Press. Many of
them will freely spend their hundreds of
dollars in a Presidential canvass, to diffuse
through their several Counties the views of
public policy they deem correct and impor
tant, when they might have effected their
cud far more certainly and tit comparative
ly no expense, had tbcv in concert and sea
sonably promoted the circulation therein of
such journals as would most ably, ellicicnt
ly Iihvo presented tbee views. There are
few Counties in the Union in which the
circulation of the able Political Journals
might not be doubled by the concerted ef
fort of their most influential arid public spir
ited citizens none in which such circula
tions would not make itself manifest in fu
ture elections. The chief obstacle lo the
prevalence of just views of public questions
to day is not prejudice but iiidill'ereuce,
whereof the root is ignorance. Many vote
mistakenly, heedlessly, while more neglect
to vote nt all, mainly because their atten
tion has not been seriously drawn to, and
fixed upon topics of National concern as,
indeed, it could not well be unless they
were induced to study the facts and con
siderations relating thereto. But if every
person (lid habitually study these facts,
there woultld be litlle use in political drum

Amerlcan.Tea.
The tea grown here, turns out more high
ly and dcliciutisly flavored than that impor
ted, being in all respects like that drank by
the wealthy in China, the grand diffureiice
between tho American grown and the im-
ported, being in the loss of flavor occasion
, ed by the sea voyage. Latitude U 1 north,
j in Alabama, Georgia, and North Carolina,
proves better suited for the cultivation of
the plant than any other region. Dr. Da-
I vis. of South Carolina, who originated the
experiment, is already realizing handsome
ly by the sale of his young trees, which arc
eagerly bought up al any price by Southern
agriculturists.
There aro persons yet living, who can
recollect when the Cotton plant was only
seen iu flov er pots, in which it was culti
vated on account of its lovely blossom ; one
of tbe prettiest flowers iu the calendar of
horticulture. Observing men in the South,
who know the history of the cotton-raising
business of this country, are generally of
opinion, that lea-growing is about to be
come quite important to us, iu even less
tiiuu tli.ui it has taken us to become the
great cotton producing country of the world.
i ho character ol soil and climale auapteti

as to make it interfere ut all with the pro

" Dear friend If thee bast nut filled u

The broker, iu fact, had not filled up tin
pulicy, but presuming from the tenor of Ja

tempted by what seemed a good chance t
clutch his per coinage without risk, he fill

Lr.ATiicn SiT.CTAcr.RB at last. There
has been a great deal of bad joking about
Leather Spectacles, but there is now a
great probability that they will come into
actual use. One Mr. Cranmorji, an Eng
lish gentleman, informs a scientific journal
that his sight is defective, and that among
other experiments to strengthen it he took
a card ami made two fine pin holes exactly
in the position of the centres uf the pupils
of bis eyes, and found that he saw the trua
image as correctly as ever ho did in his
life.
By making the pin holes larger or small
er, tho focal distance is increased or dimin
ished proportioiiably. In sunshine he can
read at the natural focal distance, but with
faint light there is the common confusion
of letters. A flattening cornea will explain
this ; he thinks tho cause to be " some want
of contractility engendered in old age, in
the iris." There is one curious fact which,
he has observed, viz : that fine wire gauze,
l-50tb of an inch in diameter, in meshes,
enables him, when vorn close to .he eye,
to read small print with great facility, at the
distance of six inches, and when the mesh
es are still closer, be can see tne most min

A Droll Definition or a Yankee..
As the Yankees aro creating no little ex
cicmcnt in the commercial, political and
military world, we hope our definition of a
I genuine male Yankee may not be consider
ed a miss.
A real genuine Yankee is of animation.
checked by moderation, guided by deter-
iniiiHtion, and supported by education,
He has veneration corrected by tolera-
l tion, with a love of self-approbation, and
' emulation ; and when reduced to a slate of
aggravation, can assume thti most profound
j dissimulation for the purposo of retaliation,
always combined, if possible, with specu-
' lation.
! A real live Yankee, just caught, will be
found not deficient in the following quali
ties :
Ho is self-denying, self-relying, always
' trying and into everything prying.
I He is a lover of piety, propriety, notorie
ty, and the temperance society.
He is a dragging, gagging, blagging, stri
ving, thriving, swopping, jostling, bustling,
wrestling, musical, quizzical, astronomical,
philosophical, poetical, and comical sort of
u character, whose manifest destiny is to
spread civilization to the remotest corner
of the earth, with an eye always en the look
out for the main chance. -Rogersvillt

I am sick of tho dull, prosy affairs," said a
lady, iu the presenco of a parson. .
' But it is no easy matter, my good wo
man, to write good sermons," suggested the
minister.
" Yes," rejoined the lady, " but you aro
so long about it ; I could write one in half
the time, if I only had the text."
" Oil, if a text is all you want," said tho
parson, " 1 will furnish that. Tnko this from
Solomon : ' It is belter (o dwell iu a cor
