' The Last Stroke of Fortune. , Twenty )oars ago, an old liouso was itill ttaiiding in Cologne, wlucli showed to the ' street a frontage of fue small windows, hi was the house in v Inch the first painter of the Finnish school, the immortal Rubens, was burn, A. I). 1577. Sixty years Inter! than ilns date, tho ground floor was occu pied by two old people, a shoemaker and his ' "ile. Tln upper tlory, which was usually lit tu lodgers, was empty at the time we , write of. Two, however, occupied the gar ret The evening was cold and wet, and ! the shoemaker and his wife were sitting to-' gether in the room below. ' You had better go up stairs again,' slid , he man to his wife, 'and sec how the poor , i.ily is. The old gentleman went out early, 1 ami lus not been in since. Has she not! taken any thing 1' I It is only half an hour since I was up! Hairs, and he had not come in. I took her ' me broth up at noon, but she hardly ( lunched it, and 1 was up again at three ; 1 he was asleep then, and at five she said she i 'honld not want any thing more.' Toorlady! This time of year ; and1 neither firo nor warm clothos, and not even ( decent bed to lie on j and yet I am suro 8he is some body or other. Have you no-' iced the respect with which the old gentle-j Wan treats her?' 'If she wants any thing it is her own fdult. That ring she wears on her finger I would get her the best of every thing.' Then came a knock at the dour, and tho woman admitted the old man they had just j 'puken of, whose grizzlebeard fell down upon Ins tarnished velvet coat. The host s sadly wanted to have a little gossip with j him, hut he passed by, and, bidding them a 'hurt' Good night,' groped his way up the1 ,cen and crooked staircase. On eiiterintr ! th fli.....k. .. I C l.ln . tiwiiilrnfl I the causo of his long absence 'I could not help it,' he said. I had oeen copying manuscript, and as I was on roy way here a servant met me, who was to I 'cii mo to raise the horoscope or two In dies who were passing through ; they were Udies who I have known before. J thought I could get a little money to pay for some simples which might bo of service to you.' ' 1 am cold.' it is feer cold. I will make you some thing which you must take directly.' The flame of a small tin lamp sufficed to "eat some water, and the patient, having taken what the old man had provided, was "'gently covered up by him with all the clothes and articles of dress he could find, le stood by her motionless until he per ceived that she was fast asleep, and indeed long after ; he then retired into a small C ,?,cl' ani sught repose on tho hard floor, I'he next morning the lady was so much be',er that her attendant proposed she should endeavor to leave the liouso for a moment ? two, and he succeeded in getting her wth as far as the 1'lacc St. Cecilia, It was cldoin that she left tho house, for, notwith. standing the meanness of her dress, there whs that in her carrinqo which rendered il difficult to avoid unpleasant observation. ' Do you see that person yonder ?' she said suddenly. ' If 1 am not much mis taken, it is certainly tho Duko of Guise.' The 'stranger's attention had also Jieen attracted, and he had now approached them. 'I'lirUrn ." said he, 'why that is Alas cali. What, ate you married V ' Ho does not know mo,' sighed tho lady. ' I must indeed be altered.' iMasoali had, however, whispered a sin gle word in the Duko's ear, and he started as if struck by a thunderbolt ; but instant ly recovering himself, he hastily uncovered, and bowed nearly to tho ground. 'I beg your pardon,' he said; 'but my eyes arc grown so weak, and I could so lit tle expect to hato the honor of mocuiir I your' ' " ' For the love of God,' interrupted the ' lauy, nastiy, name mo not here.

You, the son of a mill who, had he not loo much despised dancer, micht well have set tho crown on his own head, and I, once the Queen of the ' mightiest nation in the universe; and now' botli ol us alike. Hut adieu,' she said sud denly, and, drawing herself up, ' the sight of you, my lord duke, has refreshidmc much, and I pray that fortune once more may smile upon your steps.' ' Permit me to attend your majesty to ' A slight color tinged the lady's features, as the answered, with a gently commanding tone ' Leave us, my lord duke, it is our pleas ure.' Guise bowed low, and, taking the lady's hand, he pressed it reverently to his lips. At the corner of the struct he met some one, to whom ha pointed out the old lady, and hastened away. I ho next morning a knock at the door ! announced a person inquiring for .Monsieur AUicali; she had a small packet for him, ; and also a billet. Inside this was distinctly J written : ' Two hundred louis d'ors constitute tho whole of my present fortune; one hundred I send for vour use. 'GUISE.' And the packet contained a hundred louis d'ors. Tho sum thus obtained sufficed to sup ply the wants of the pair two long years. lint the last louis had been changed, and the lady and her companion wero still with out friendly succour. The shoemaker and Ins wife had undertaken a journey to Aix la Chapelle, to take up some small legacy. It was the Kith of Febuary, I01. A low sound of moaning might have been beard issuing from the garret; a withered female form, more like a skeleton than a thing of flesh and blood, was lying on a wretched bed of straw, in the agonies of death. The moans grew more and more indistinct ; a flight raiding in the throat was at lengih the only audible sound, and this also ceai-ed. An hour later an old man, dressed in rags and (alters, entered the chamber. One only word had ocaped his lips as he tumbled up the falling staircase " Nothing ! nothing !" Ho drew near the bed listlessly, but in a moment he siezedjan arm of thocorpno with an almost com ulsivo motion and letting it suddonly fall, he cried : " Dead, dead, of hunger, cold, and star vation !" And this lady was Mary of .Medicis, wife of Henry IV., Ciuecn Kogoni of France, mother uf Louis X1IL, of Isabella, Queen of Spam, of Henrietta, Queen of England, of Christina, duchess of Savoy, of Gaslon, Duke of Orleans dead of hunger, cold, and misery; and yet Louis XIII., the cowardly tool of Richelieu, his mother's murderer, is still called " the Just." Influence of Example. In a certain illagu in Switzerland, some years ago, there wero heavy complaints a inong all those who possessed trees that no fruit was safe; that tho children plundered it perpetually before it come tu maturity; and not only that, but thai llie green sapling had no security against them. Another se rious complHint was tho barbarity of the children towards all living crep.tures in their power. The clergjinan, teacher and elders often laid their heads together, to lind'sqjne remedy fur this inhuman spirit, by which every child in the place was more or less affected. They could not conceive why such sport should prevail, especially in thit village ; but could find neither causo nor remedy ; all exhortations or punishments were in vain. The clergyman of the vil lage was changed; and the minister w as ii great friend tu schools. His first walk was lo tho school house. The vice of his schol ars had been made known to him, and the failure of all the preventive measures hilh crfo applied. Hut determining within him self lo watch the whole course of proceed ings in school, ho soon perceived ihat the teacher had a habit, and acquired a singu lar dovterily in it, of knocking down and killiii" Hies with his cane, to the cud of which he had fastened a piece of leather. Tho windows wero all on one side, and be ing exposed lo the morning sun of summer, thev were continually full of flies. The teacher's path lay along them in front of his ncholars ; and w lule talking lo the latter, he struck down tho flics as they showed them selves at the window. This maneuver a mused the children infinitely more than his instructions did, and they followed his ex ample. They were incessantly on the watch for flies that buzzed about the room, caught them in their hands, and showed as great dexterity in their kind of chase us their teacher in Ins. Hut their amusement did not end hero ; they had learned to play with their captives, treat them with detest ble cruelty, and seemed to find a wicked delight in observing the shivering victims. On observing these curious and far from pleasing peculiarities of tho school, the in telligent and humane clergyman easily ac- counted for the Fpirit of dcstriictivcncsr a- niOUf? ttu! chllltrnil : ami hi fipt lnn tvad to induco the teacher to tako tho leather Irom the end onus cane; and next, to turn tho desks so that the boys sat with their backs lo the windows, and thn ledrlipr'n path lay on tho other side of tho room. Then the minister went frequently into tho school, and examined so severely that both toachcr and scholars hail tnnrn In iln than to give their attention in the flics. As this was not yet entirely satisfactory in lis re sults, the minister took advantage of the hot summer weather, to have instruction given only in the afternoon, when the school was . r M . .. noi so iuii oi mes, anu llius lie gradually banished the insects from tho thoughts of the teacher and children. Hut he knew it was of little avail solely to null the weed out of the young mind. He obtained an unoc cupied piece of land fit for plantingund, not far from the school, laid out a scKbol' garden. 1 I his pleased the teacher, and the chil dren willingly took part it) the task, for they hail seen and learned lo like their now minister, who came and worked amongst them. The garden was surrounded by a hedge planted with trees and shrubs, and each child had a trco or shrub given tohitn to lake care of. A nursery was soon laid out, and provision made for plenty of larg er gardens and orchards in the village. And behold I tho spirit of dostructiveness among the children soon passed away ; and every man's fruit and garden became safe, the youths even begging their parents that trees might be planted in tho fields for them i to take care of. The uw Kmrit u-ns mm. inunicatcd from children to tiarenia. till ii spread throughout the entire village ; every lamuy nan in pretty little garden ; an emu lation in cultivating flowers sprang into exiftencc; idle and bad habits disappeared; and gradually the whole village was a scene of moral as well as physical beauty. This incident, the truth of which can be vouched fur, has been communicated to us by a l.n!y of rank who happens to be ac iptnniled with the circumstances, and has thought that their publicity may be adiauta geous. We have no doubt of the fact, that tho practice of amateur gardening is never associated with evil, but is alvvaws a token of advanced tastes and correct habits. We would lurlher say, let every school, so far as it can be conicniRiillv dnnp lin h garden, not only for purposes of amusement, nui as an important engine ot education. Chambers' Journal. A Wonderful Comet. There is a comet that requires G7U years 10 make its revolution around tho sun. The first account of its appearance on rec ord, is I7(i7 years before Christ. Some who lived then thought it the plauet Venus changing its appearance and course. It was seen tho second time 1 11(3 years before Christ. Again, .111 1J. C, This was tho year after Julius Caisar, the Roman Dicta tor, was killed in the Senate. Some, in those dark ages, thought it conveyed tho soul of Ciusar to Paradise, others that it portended the glory of the ruler that should succeed the Dictator. It was seen without doubt tho fifth time A. D. .":!(). Il was tho fifth year of tho reign of tho Roman Em peror Justinian. The account is that n Comet was seen twenty seven days in tho month of September, and that for some time after the sun appeared pale. It was duo again in 1 105, and early in tho following year one was seen. Its last appearance was 10?0. An account of in remarkable ap pearance, with its velocity, heat, ecc. is given by Newton and others. This comet has been gone near 171 ) oars. 11 will be due here again in the year '2UG. Tho idea of a coirrt going off and slaying so long a time is a great one. It gives us an idea of the greatness of the Creator's works, and of the mighty operations of his hand. Where does this fiery body go, and w hat part of the universe docs it visit I It has been stated that the comet was seen 1 7(57 years II. C. It must have ap peared ata years before that, which would have been 2:112 II. C. which was six yoars after tho flood in the days of Noah. Its picvinus visit to our system must havo been 2917 IJ. C. Then before that, according to our Chronology, was tho Creation. This lacks 02 years of the lime requisite fur the comet to make a complete revolution. So at the Creation, it might have been placed at a distance from the sun equal to what it would have moved in sixty three-years. It probably is now making its eleventh revo lution in its orbit. 1 he cteation is worthy of its Divine Author. The Jews. The new Chancellor of tho (English) Ex chequer, Disraeli "tho wondrous boy who wrote Alroy" in his recent life of Lord George llcntinck, has many interest ing statements and speculations as to the " children of Israel," of whom hois one. In one place he remarks that "the allegation that the dupcrsioii of the Jewish race is a pcnulty incurred for the commission of a crimo the crucifiction of Jesus Christ is neither historically true, nor dogmatically sound. Il is not historically true, because the Jews were as much dispersed through out tho world at tho advent of our Lord as they aro at tho present lime, and had been so for many cpnturies before." Again he says: "The Jews after all the havoc and persecution they have experienc ed, are probably more numerous al this date, than they were during the reign of Solomon tho wise; aro found in all lauds, and, unfortunately, prosper in most. All which proves that it is vain for man lo at tempt to ballle the inexorable laws of nature, winch has decreed thai a superior race shall never be destroyed or absorbed by an infe rior." Again: "If the reader throws his eyo over the Provisional Government of Germa ny, of Italy, and even of France, formed in IfcUeS, ho will recognize, everywhere, the Jewish element. Alazzani, who accom plished thu insurrection, is a Jew, who professes the whole of the Jewish religion and believes in Calvary as well as Sinai, He is what the Lombards call a converted Jew. Frederick Gentz, Secretary of tho Congress of Vienna, was a child of Israel. Several millions of the Jewish rajo persist in be lieving a part only of their religion. There is one fact which none can conte'st. Chris tians may couttnue to persecute Jews, and Jew s may persist in disbelieving Christians, but who can deny that Jesus of Nazareth, tho Incarnate son of tho Most High God, is tho eternal glory of tho Jewish racol " The European nations are indebted to the Jews for much that regulates, much that charms, and much that solaces exis tence. Tho toiling multitude rest every seventh day by virtue of a Jewish law; thoy are perpetually reading, for their example, the records of Jowish history, and singing the odes and elegies of Jewish poets; and they daily acknowledge on their knees, with reverent gratitude, that tho medium of communication between the Creator and themselves is the Jewish race. Yet they treat that race as the vilest of generations ; and, instead of logically looking upon tliem as the human family tbat has contributed most to human happiness, they extend to them every term of obloquy and every form of persecution." The Sufferings of Poverty. A French provincial paper, the Imltpcn dent r!c la Moselle, contains the following narrative, tho authenticity of which it says is guaranteed : ,, . ..... , . . . iii a nil i; uiHU til iiiir iinri.irirnpm ' there lived last year a poor family of work people. 1 he fathtr died. A martyr to la- tior, no overtasked his strength ; fatigue killed him at thu age of 32 I For all per sons sickness is n frightful thing, but for tho workman it is the worst visitation that can befall him ; for, having only bis labor to live by, Ins icsoiirces are stopped. To feed his wilo and children ho sells in a few months tho proceeds often or twenty years' labor, and when death arrives ho loaves them without an asylum and without bread. Such was tho fate of the poor family of which we speak. When the father died the chamber was cold and void. Except the wooden crucifix suspended lo the wall, near ly nil the furniture had disappeared. The mother, however, did nut lose courage, and to find food for her children worked day and night. Alas lor the nohlo hearted wo man ! she was not more fortunate than her husband ! At tho end of a few weeks she fell dangerously ill. One morning in the month of March last a female neighbor went to her house to render somo little ser vices required by her position. Sho found her dead.

' Wife,' said he, embracing her, ' w hy are you sad ? Has anything happened ?' ' No, nothing disturbs my happiness or yours; what af fects me is the misfortune of another.' ' And what is that misfortune ! Explain.' ' Well, our neighbor died in the night.' In so saying she felt her fears increased, and looked towards the bed in which tho chil dren were, hidden by the curtain. 'Dead !' said the man. 'Ah!

Smith. N. A. i-ivundvico. If chastisement will do it. Unit, R. K. Cox, John Howard, Timothy C. Day, Samuel Froome, Samuel W. Cor win, Wm. Miller, David Wluto, Thomas Sherlock, eleven of the most prominent democrats of tho city of Cincinnati and the county of Hamilton (Ohm) publish a card, in which they announce that they havo been mado acquainted with the cxistciico ofn secret political organization in that county. They " charge that this society has contin ued in u.xislenco up to this lime, unless its members have all been frightened away with in tho past week-that its meetings arc in secret, its members regularly initiated and bound by an obligation to keep secret tu acts and existence ; that, though tho pre amble to its constitution very modestly claims that its object is lo ' purify tho dem ocratic party,' the solo aim of getters-up and managers is, and has been, lo control the nominations of the party by tho secret as aistencc of two hundred members, repre senting tho wards and townships of the county, who arc understood to be bound to use all their endeavors to secure the success of the ticket nominated by the society, when the County Convention shall meet." They challenge any denial of theso grave charges. Tho Louisville Journal says that the editor of thu Cinctuiiati Enquirer (a prominent democratic organ) not only ndtnitB the rx istencc of this society, but also, that he is, himself, a member of it, and that it 1ms been in existence for many years. It is also al lodged that it has branches all over the State of Ohio. It was for attempting to speak in pulilii against tho existence of such secret socie ties mid their despotic rulo over the rank and file of the party, that Mr Rccinrlin was mobbed. Well, wo ccrtninly must say, that in pull, ing up somo of their rotten flooring, there was discovered a rather singular and oxteu sivo nest of rats upon the prcmisos of llic democrats of Hamilton. Wc .should judgu that a secret society, two hundred strong, and all bound by oath to turn out and work together in controlling the democratic party of Hamilton county, with the mass of the apathetic quietly at home, should bo rather sure of its end. We always thought there was something queer in (Tic management of the democratic machinery in that section, and marveled greatly how the editor of the Enquirer ever was Humiliated for Congress. " The murder is out now," and it certain- . ly must give a very amusing and puzzling , casl to the physiognomies or the humbugged (democracy thereabouts. If this secret or- ionization really extends throughout the State, wc should think the domucrotic out sHcrs mint have to Toast on a far-off vision of official loaves and fishes. We doubt very much if there aro scats for them, even at " tho second table." Tho democratic party is unfortunate in these urittcrs. In Now York, the Tam many Society, Alike Walsh's Subterra neans, Ryndcr's Club, or thu Aristocratic Regency at Albany, hae generally kept the wires in their own hands. In St Louis, a Henry Iloersleiu (a compendium of hII posaible ultraisms) seems to hold its destiny in hands: and a short time since rather cool lv informed it, that the organization of a German Republican Democratic Associa tion was necessary lo ktep it and thn count ry from " going to the dogs." Now comes the revelation of this Ohio Secret Associa tion, and its private arrangements lor " liv ing matters." What next ! Wc shall not innrvel nt anv new discovery. Crescent City.

A Golden Rule for a young lady is, to con verse always with her lemalu friends as if a gentlemen were ol tho party ; and with young men as if her female com panions weru present. Rapid Ghowtm. Tho Massachusetts Ploughman gives tha measurement of fourappfc trees set live years tigo, when three years Irotn the hud. The soil was of quite moderate fertility.

U. I have seen farmers let their best laud grow up lo briars and weeds, and remain from year to year encumbered with nil manner of trash, thus fulfilling the proverb, " I went by the field of the slothful and the wneyartl of the man void of understanding, and lo, it was all grown over with thorns, und nettles had covered llic lace thereof, and the stone wull thereof was broken down." 1. I havo seen farmers who had a tol erable theory of farming in their heads, but not the (irjt principle in practice, nnd were like the Scribes and I'harisics, '' for they say and do not." 5. I have seen farmers who thought it wicked lo cultivate n lino garden, shrubbery, ornamental trees, (lowers, or anything to muku their homes pleaseut and inviting, not discerning the hand of the Creator in all the works of nature but who esteemed it no sin to stiller their children to grow up in idleness, roving about with no taste for anything pertain ing to home. (i. I have seen farmers who let their tools remain in the field in nil weathers, and during the winter, saving a gtcat deal of time in not carrying tliem to and from their store houses, it is true, but orgett ing the old maxim "a penny saved is as good as two pence earned." 7. I have seen furmcrs who knew en ough of farming without reading tho Cultivator, nnd could not afford lo tako il, but who wero uble to pay for u novel, or some trash paper of the day. 8. I Imvo seen farmers, who wero very officious iu their neighbors business, and strange ns it may seem, neglected their own. Geo. Caugii.i,. Berkshire, Ar. Y.
