rv A SCOLDING WIFE.;;" ,
Got scolding wife, have you.' 'Well, It's
your own fault, ten to one. "Women nro all
naturally amiable, and when their tern lorn get
crossed it's the men that do it. Just look at
yourself na you came home last nighU ISbtu-
ininjjj doors, and kicking everything that luul
in tliu way, right and left - because well,
you couldn't tell for the life of you what it
vns for. Suppose you'd been "laying your
lace unuor cmoargo nil day to those who
cared nothing about von, amil'mir nnd nod
ding, hemming and ha'ing, mi J wanted to get
where you could enjoy a little superlative ill
nature.
Jo wonder your wife was cross, getting
supper wan a buoy in her arms ! Why didn t
you tike the baby, and trot it, and please it?
'Koom was all in confusion" why didn't
.you put it to rights? "You want a little
rest!" So does your wife, and she gets pro
ciout little, poor woman. You nre nt vour
shop walking briskly through the sunshine
in this bracing weather reading the paper
meeting friends and acquaiiitatR-ea-Mtting
cmily in' tkc ofHcb. She is" at home with
clinging arms dragging about her neck; j liv
ing, but still wearisome nt times. She is de
pendent upon the eall of a neighbor for a
little break up in her monotonous life, or the
opening of n w indow upon a stunted yard for
what fresh air comes. Wake up, man alive,
nnd look into this matter! Put on your best
smile the moment your foot touches the door
step. Treat tlje littered room to a broad
grin, and your wife to a kiss. Give the baby
aome sugar-plums, and little Bobby a new
picture-book to busy his bright' eyes with.
Pell that poor, tired-looking woman tliat
you've brought her a nice book to read," a6d
that you're going to tay at horns evenings.
Our word for it, apologies will bo plentiful,

enrse it will to a charm. . '
; . It may be a little silent that evening. You
miss the complaining tone, the scolding and
faultfinding; but your loss is her gain; she is
. thinking of the long-past, but considers upon
the whole that she is a happier woman to.

Give the new plan n fair trial. Gradually,

and your wife appear as good as new. Home

TnE TiJiF.s-Goon Advice. The Provi
tlenco Journal ofl'ers Ui following sonsible
advice to manufaelurerK, but it is applicable
to sJ classe egaged m msiness, imd it is
worthy of careful consideration: . '
" The best thing for the manufacturers is to
make tie "best t'the preseik feivonible .siate
if business, to draw themselves into as close
quarters as possible, to nnply their profits to
tho panent f tnx delis, nnd not to be
tempted into the folly of extending tlicm

legitimate result of American business.

to Great Britain. Rail wad iron Whicb coti'd

the only substantia! representative that we
luue to shew for this debt The wA 4as
lieen consumed. When the foreign creditors,
from sudden alarm, which comes in business
matters, no ne knows whence, or from com
mercial depression, or stringency in the money
market nt home, call fur their pay, there will
be hard times hero. Investments made here
under present prices will not pay tho debto
that they create; property will be sacrificed,
nnd fortune lost, and good men rained.
Now is the time to prepare.
Abstemious Diet. The necessity of per
sons becoming their wn physicians when the
bodily functions Te slightly disordered is
well illustrated in the Domestic Receipt
Book.
Many cases of illness, both in adults nnd
children, may be Teadily cured by nbstinence
froui all food. Headaches, disordered stom
achs, nnd many other attacks are often caused
by violating the rules of health, and iii con
sequence, some parts of tho system nre over
loaded, or some of the organs nro clogged.
Omitting one, two, or three meals, as the ease
may he, gives the system a chance to rest and
allows the clogged organs to dispose of their
burdens. The practice of giving drugs to
clear out tho stomach, though it may afford
he needed temporary relief, always weakens
the system, while abstinence secures the good
result without duing any injury.

used to wash with in all p arts of the country,
and by those who.kuow its virtues it is pre

ly to strip oil' the hnsk, dip the clothes in
water, and rub the bulb on them; it make a
thick lather,nnd smells not unlike new brown
soap. The botanical name of the plant is
Phalangium pomaridianiim. Pesides this

For the J'oxt. t ,,
Mit. Editor: Home time since, in' a num
ber of your paper, there appeared a lKitiee
of a superior quality of Corn, raised by your
worthy citizen, Judge Keycsf and while'.Meigs
comity may riv-al you in point of Corn, it is
claimed by nnd fairly conceded to James Lil
ian!, Esq., of Decatur, Tenii., that ho has
raised a pig, now m salt, which weighed four
hundred and fourteen pounds, stripped and
bled, at the age of fifteen months -it being
the largest of the hog kind known to have
been raised in East Tennessee. To such
men as those wc have mentioned, is due much
credit, for without labor there is no excellence.
Let the attention of our farmers nnd business
men generally be more attracted to the de
velopment of our real and certain commer
cial resources, and tlw tide of trade which
has enrichened other sections of the country,
particularly Kentucky, will be thrown in our
midst, and the' g'-eat objects of society
pcnconiid plenty be enjoyed by all uninter
ruptedly. Upon the farming class depends
all other branches of business in our own
suction; the cotton of the South being a
medium through which our currency is sup
plied, the almighty dollar of the rich million
aire finally reaching the pocket of our farmer
boy who feeds the pigs. J. A.

not a precedent. Two married men who liv
ed near each other, became, from reasons
best known to themsulvcs, dissatisfied with
their own wives, and took n fancy, Cuch for the
other's spunse. Matters being thus, their
better huK'es vcro; mmsulled as to tt change,
und expressed. themselves willing to accede
to any measures that would keep pcaco in
the family. Each wife took her neighbor's
husband, nnd have since lived contentedly in
their new home. - ' - ' .' r
Never trust a man for tin vehemence of

J5f The following we commend to the
attention of that heartless fellow, the news
paper borrower. It contains an oeenn of'
truth: -
"Newspaper borrowers are nlways the

and their pure eyes water at error, which 'they
steal to read, und eheat to obtain. Those
who take and pay 'for their' papers, always
have a pail in their hearts1 tilled with the
milk of indulgence. It takes one of your
stealing and borrowing fraternity to turu out
tho real bitterness of fault finding." .
