A Great Speech.
It it not often that such lolid words of wisdom fall from tho lips of man as were uttered by Mr. Petor Cooper, at the recent Annual Commencombnt of the institution founded by him. The occasion was one of unusual interest on account of the presentation of an nd dress from the present and past pupils to the venerable founder cf the Union. This address, unlike most similar pro ductions, was remarkably well written, tender in the expression of gratitude, beautiful in sentiment. It has been elegantly engrossed, and elaborately framed for preservation in the great reading room of the Institute, and is in better taste than any bronze statue or monumental device could have been. The thousands of grateful pupils say to the world, " if you seek a monument look about you," and Mr. Cooper's name and fame is rendered more secure and imperishable in such a way than it could be in any other. The remarks of Mr. Cooper, in reply to the presentation address, were full of wisdom, and deserving of preservation in a permanent form. The venerable author would blush to have his words called a speech, and yet we venture to say that a greater speech was never heard in the large hall where have been assembled from time to time, nearly all of the wise men of the country. Writers on political economy devote many pages to the elaboration of the laws of trade, the question of demand and Bup ply, the relations of employer and em ployed, the rights of property, and the duties of men of wealth, but Mr. Cooper has condensed the whole matter into a few words, and if these words could sink deep into the hearts of all mankind, we should never again hear of the rich oppressing the poor, nor the poor de stroying themselves by " lock outs " and " strikes." We advise every manufacturer, every mechanic, every laborer to procure a copy of this address, and trade unions could not do a better thing than to have it reprinted for gratuitous circulation among their members. It ought to have the widest possible circulation, and, we propose to give toe greater pare ot it in our columns. Mr. Cooper celebrated his eightieth birthday by making au additional gift of one hundred and fifty thou band dol lars to the Union, for the foundation Hnd support of a free circulating library, This act was all that was necessary to round up and complete the usefulness of the Institute. The laboring poor can now obtain gratuitous instructions in every depart ment of practical knowledge, and when unable to attend the exercises of the school, can still profit by the benefaC' tion by carrying home with them the book required lor their lntorination, By such acts of benevolence, and by the gut of more than a million dollars for the tree eduoation ot workingmen and toiling women, Mr. Cooper has earned the right to offer advice, both to the rich and poor, lie snows now to earn a tor tune, and how to spend it. He says " While vet a child, I learned that ' the Land of the diligent niaketh rich,' and whatever of wealth I have achieved has been due, primarily, to habits of patient industry formed at the outset of my career. He early learned that the great part of the poverty, vice, and crime which afflict the American people was due to intemperance, and he " carefully avoid' ed all alcoholic liquors as the greatest curse of the young, and tne most deadly foe to domestic happiness and'the public welfare. He next warns against hastily con tracted debts, and suggests tne wisdom of trying to keep a little ready money on hand for judicious investments. Debt is a slavery which every young man ought to avoid , or, if assumed, ought not to endure for one day beyond the shortest time necessary to set mm tree, " By shunning intemperance, and pract ising rigid economy, he was able to grow in prosperity and wealtn, but tbe op portnnities of acquiring knowledge were so limited, there being no tree day or evening schools, that he found it far more dimoult to learn what he wanted to know than to be industrious, temper ate, and prudent. Hence he decided that, if he should prosper in the acquisl tion of worldly means, to found an in stitution to whioh all young people of the working classes who desired to be good citizens, and to rise in life, could resort, without price, in order to acquire that knowledge of their business, and ox science, which in these days, is ab solutely indispensable to a successful Mr. Cooper never lost sight of this resolution during a business career of nearly sixty years ; and all this time, he nays, that he was " cheered, comforted, sustained and encouraged by the great est of human blessings, a diligent, wise, industrious, faithful, and affectionate wife ; and by the active co-operation of lis children, who justly regarded, as the richest portion of their inheritance, that part of his wealth which he desired to consecrate to the public welfare." Having thus given an account of the train of circumstances which led to the foundation of tho " Union for the Ad vancement of Science and Art," Mr, Cooper closes with the following elo quent words : "I do not prescribe any standard of ex penditure for others, and I am quite ready to subscribe to the doctrine that a ust and faithful trustee should be liber ally paid for his services, and Bhould not be restricted in tbe reasonable gratihca tion of his desires so long as the right; to others are not hereby infringed ; and I desire to give the fullest recognition to the sacredness of private property and the conservation of capital, as for the best interests of society and all the members thereof ; but I cannot shut my ttyes to the fact that production of Vealth is not the work of any one man, I nd that the acquisition of great for tanes is not possible without the co-op I ration of multitudes of men, and that therefore the individuals to whose lot 1 bese fortunes fall, whether by inheri i inoe or the laws of production and trade, I hould never lose sight of the tact th&t, I they hold them only by the will of society, expressed in statute law, so they tihoula administer them as trustees for the benefit of society, as inoulcated by the moral law. When, rich men are thus brought to rsgard themselves aa trustees, and poor na learn to be industrious, economical, temperate, self-denying aud diligent iu the acquisition of knowledge, then tho deplorable strife between capital and la bor, tending to destroy tuuir lunaameu tal, necessary, and irrefragable harmony, will cease : and the world will no longei be afflicted with such unnatural indus trial conflicts as we have seen, during the past century, in every quarter of the civilized globe, and latterly on so great scale iu this country, arraying those whom nature intended to be firm allies and inseparable friends into hostile camps in which the great law of love and mutual forbearance is extinguished by selfish passions. The law of force, whether expressed in trade associations, preventing other men from exeroising tneir inalienable rignt to labor where they can find work, or in combinations of capitalists seeking by lock outs to close the avenues of labor, are equally eprenensibie and should never be allow ed, under any provocation whatever, to take the place of the divine law : 'What soever ye would that men should do un to you, do ye even so unto them ;' nor will such an unnatural and criminal substitution ever be possible, if poor men will remember that it is the duty and therefore the right, of every poor man to strive to become rich by honest, intel ligent and patient labor, and if rich men will remember that the possession of wealth, which is the fruit of the general effort, confers no right to its use as an engine of oppression or coercion upon any class which is concerned in its pro duction. Let me then reoord that, dur ing a long life passed in active business, I have never known any but evil conse quences to all classes, and especially to the innocent, to result from strikes, lock outs, or other forcible measures designed to interfere with the steady and regular march of productive industry, and I feel justified in an earnest appeal to both workmen ana capitalists nencetortn to regard each other as equals and friends ; and to imitate tne great example, so re cently sot by the enlightened govern ment of Great Britain and the United States, in the submission of their differ ences to arbitration ; and not to expect to reform social evils by combinations designed to force either side into the ac ceptance of unpalatable terms, by the stern logic ot starvation and indiscnmi nate ruin. Reform to be of any perma nent value, must be based upon personal virtue, not force ; and it seems to me that the millenium will not be far off, when each individual shall set about re forming himself rather than society, and conforming his life to the great law of loving God and his fellow-men. While 1 thank you my young friends 1 had almost said my children for this mani festation of your respect and gratitude, so touching because so full of love, let me ask you to accept of this feeble but heartfelt reply as a kind of last will and testament ot the garnered experience of an old friend, whose days are almost numbered, and who asks only to be re membered as " one who loved his fellow men." A Sagacious Dog. Mr. Snapp, a blacksmith, owns two nogs ; one, a terrier, tour or hve years old, the other, half shepherd and half cur, about twelve or fifteen years old, and consequently very feeble. In the winter, between the hours for breakfast and dinner, and dinner and supper, these two dogs may always be seen perched up just far enough from Mr. Snapp's forge to escape the sparks, but still near enough to keep warm. As soon as the hour for dinner comes whioh they know even better than the apprentices in the shop they are both off at a full run, each aiming to secure a place behind the warm kitchen stove, which is only large enough lor one dog at a time. Now the terrier, being the mcst active, almost always gains the coveted place, leaving the poor olddog out in the cold. .Now comes the curious part of my story : The old dog being thus left out in tho cold, one bitter day, put himself iu a thinking attitude, and set his wits to work to devise some means by which he could get the terrier out of the coveted place. All at once an idea seemed to strike him. Taking advantage of the good " watch dog qualities ot the ter rier, he made a feint toward the garden, barking furiously, as if some oue was intruding at that point, when, true to his nature, out popped the terrier, not to make a feint, but to make a pell-mell rush to the extreme end of the garden, pushing the old schemer just outside the kitchen-door, who no sooner saw the terrier enter the garden than he popped too, not into the garden, but behind the warm kitchen stove, curled himself up and waited, with a cunning twinkle iu his eye, for his young friend, who no sooner made his appearance, and seeinsr the situation, then he tried exactly the same stratagem with the old dog, with as little success as it be had tried to ny, Finding that to fail so signally, he in turn put his wits to work Alter disappearing in the garden lor a few moments, he made his appearance right in front of the kitchen-door, with a large bone in his mouth, and set to work on it as if he was enjoying it hugely. How, what dog could resist such tempting sight V At least, the fellow behind the stove could not, it is plain ; for, sneaking cautiously out ot his snug retreat, he made a sudden dash for the coveted bone, which he secured very easily, to the surprise of all for a few minutes only, as the mystery was soon cleared up ; for, no sooner had he pos sessed himself of what he soon found to be nothing but an old dry bone they had both gnawed a hundred times, than the young rascal had secured the good warm retreat behind the stove which he certainly deserved after displaying so much cunuing leaving the poor old follow out again in the cold, there to contemplate the proverb : " It takes a thief to catch a thiel." Curious Slatlstios of Suicide iu New York. Some of the details in tho case of the one hundred and one suicides for the year 1871 (nearly two per week), re corded in the bureau of vital statistics, and hitherto unpublished, are interest ing. Ueventy-nine ot these were males, and twenty-two females, and out of that number twenty-seven chose death by hanging, twenty-one by shooting, and eleven by drowning ; nine cut or stabbed themselves, seven jumped from J l L i i , r. .1 uizzy neiguis, twenty-nve toon poison, and one placed himself before a locouio tive. It appears that the Germans dur illfr the vear have henn tha most nrnnn to tuke their own lives, having furnished forty-six or nearly one-half of the en tire number, flanging seems to have been the favorite form of suicide, there being twenty-seven, a plurality over all methods adopted by them to " shuffle off the mortal coil." Of the forty-six Her mans who chose other methods than hanging, eleven put an end to their ex istenoe by shooting, seven used violent and active drugs to poison themselves, three leaped from windows, three cut their throats, one stabbed, and another killed himself with a hatchet, and three chose death by drowning. Native Americans and the Irish are next upon the roll of those " rashly im portunate, weary of breath." Thero are sixteen cases of each nationality. Six of the Americans slumbered unto death by swallowing narcotio poison, five shot themselves, two took Paris green, two cut their throats, and one hanged him self. Of the Irish, six took poison, four hanged, an ! two Bhot themselves, two leaped from windows, one drowned him self, and one cut his throat. Of seven English suicides, four took poison, one hanged himself, one cut his throat, one leaped from the roof, and one hanged himself. There were three French suioiileg, of which number one hanged himsnlf, one out his throat, and one leaped fom the roof. The remain ing thirteen of the total number, and scattered through various nationalities, ended their lives by all the different plans above specified, except one, who threw himself before a locomotive. It is interesting to note the Germans pre ferred the most violent deaths, even in the choice of poisons, such as Paris green, strychnine, etc., the most ticl.ivo and deadly. Tho Wonderful Grove of Palms at Rio Janeiro. I hardly know how to describo this garden. There are one hundred and ten palms in two rows a fine gravel walk about forty feet wide running between them. These palms, set out as straight as an arrow, are crossed at one end by another path with about as many palms on each side as in the first row ; the whole forms the letter T. A fountain from the aqueduct which supplies the city plays in the centre of this grove. The trees are perfectly straight, with no branches until near the top, where the wholo cluster is. The whole tree is, I should say, about seventy-five feet high ; the upper part of the trunk is perfectly green, the lower part is bottle-shaped. Every variety of palm is to be found in this garden. Plots of flowers are be tween every walk, and of the brightest colors ; most of the walks are lined with hedges, trimmed up to square corners, nat on top, and are a little larger than at the ground. These hedges are in per fect line in their trimming. So true and perfect are they that I first took them for blocks of wood cut out and painted green. Every kind of tropioal truit is found in this garden. The or ange, lemon, pine-apple, cocoanut, fig, bread-fruit, mango, guava, caju, plan tain, banana, and 1 don't know how many more, whose names I do not re member, and the fruit I never saw be fore. Bowers covered with running vines, having seats under them, were filled with humming birds of gayest plumage. Jiamboo canes, in spots, were growing so thick that a mouse could not have crawled through the clusters. The canes were forty feet high, some of them, and perfectly straight. Think ot a hail ing pole as straight as an arrow, thirty or forty feet long, not as large as your wrist at the butt, with a perfect taper down to nothing. This garden is about one-fourth as large as Central faik. New York, or about as large as Boston Uouimon. Lake the park, it is not nn ished yet. A Hue of horse cars run to it from the city. This liue is owned by some JN ew x orkers, pays 4u per cent, a year dividend, and the Btock can't be bought for money. Although negroes and whites are on equality here (I mean the free negroes), no man can ride in the cars unless he has on a cravat and col lar. Journal of a Tour'ut.

We copied in a recent number of the Journal an account given by the poet Bryant of the mode of life which he had pursued for many years, and to which may fairly De attributed ins remaritabie health of mind and body at a very ad vonced age.

The Boston Journalof Ctemutry gives the following method of cleansing Dianeets Put two large tablespoons of borax ana a pint bowl ot sole soap into a tub of cold water. When dissolved, put in a pair of blankets and let tbem remain in over night. Next day rub and drain them out, and rinso thoroughly in two waters, and hang them out to dry. Do not wring them. tint this is not tbe only domestic use to which borax may be put. Says the same journal : " Borax is the best cock roach exterminator yet discovered. This troublesome insect has a peculiar aver sion to it, and will never return where it has once been scattered. As the salt is perfectly harmless to human beings, it is to be preferred for this purpose to the poisonous substances commonly used. For cleansing the hair, nothing is better than a solution of borax water. Wash afterward with pure water, if it leaves tbe hair too stiff. Borax dissolved in water is also an excellent dentifrice or toothwash." To Take Bruises Out of Furni ture. Wet the part with warm water ; double a piece of brown paper five or six times, soak it in the warm water, and lay it on the place ; apply on that a warm, but not hot flatiron till the mois ture is evaporated. If the bruise be not gone, repeat the process. After two or three applications, the dent or bruise will be raised to the surface. If the bruise be small, merely soak it with warm water, and hold a red-hot iron near the surface, keeping the surface continually wet the bruise will soon disappear. Floeal Aebokiculture. In the garden of Mrs. Alfred Wadsworth, at i'attersonville, says ttie Iberia riantem Banner, is a large, flourishing magnolia tree. A beautiful running rose has thrown its branches among all of the hiub3 of the magnolia to its crown : and tne roses bloom on all ot these branches several months in the year. Soon the large, white flowers of the magnolia will blend with the llowers ot the rose bush ; and there, among the glossy, dark green magnolia leaves, all combined, consti tute a "thine of beauty, and it s the delight of all who gaze upon it. Early in the spring, we noticed a large hicko ry tree, in this city, apparently covered with heavy clusters ot the most beauti ful flowers. A Chinese Wistaria of great luxuriance, had climbed up this tree, and spread itBult all over it, and as the Wistaria was in full bloom before the leaves of the hickory made their appear ance, the effect was most striking. It actually appeared that the hickory was laden with blossoms ; and for a moment we were cheated into the belief that we had found a new and magnificent flow ering troe. Headers of taste can easily produce novel and beautiful effects in floral aboriculture by thus planting Wistarias, climbing roses, the Bigloria grandinora, the broad-leaved ivy, etc, and allowing them to spread upon and iutermin leith tha bran(.heg of the magnolia, live oak, hickory, or other trees.

Scribner's Monthly for July leads off with a splendidly Illustrated article, by J. T. Hcadley, on " Philadelphia." The next nrtlcle Is a very interesting account 01 oit. w. u. Hallock's "Jaunts in Japan," in which some valuable Information is given concerning out-of-the-way portions of that marvelous island. The rilctures accompanying mis article are very curious and suggestive. Horace Bush- nell discusses "Frce-Trado and Protection." Miss Louisa Bushnell follows her father with a charming account of a "Fete-day at Mat maison." A most curious article is R. W. wa . "- Wriirut's "Samson's Kiddle Solved the Lion- cup versiu The Lion-cub," by which the lcnrn ed writer appears actually to have discovered the solution ot enmson'S ccierjratea rmuic, which has puzzled the world for three thou sand years. Mrs. Richardson has a " Plea for Chinese Labor." and " Back-Log Btudics," by Charles Dudley Warner (author of My Sum mer in a Garden), is one of the most witty, thoughtful, and suggestive papers of the writer ol tn:s generation nearest to uancs Lamb. In the storv element, this number is particularly strong. First, tbero is Mac Donald's Wilfrid Cumbcrmcde ; then we have a capital Fourth of July story, " The Gun powder Plot," by Edward Egglcston ; a tale 1y Julia C. R. Dorr, with the taking title of My Husband's iirst Love;" ana " mason's Mother," a quaint story by Susan Coolidge. The poetry is by R. H. Stoddard, M. A. Hop kins, and Thomas Dunn English. Tbe editorial departments are as usual, very readable. The " Etchings " consist of another clever poem by Baker, "Up the Aisle," with exquibite illus trations by Miss Ledyard, being a sequel to " Love's Young Dream," and closing a num ber of Scribner's which will form delightful reading for summer days. Scribncr 6i Co., Mew lork, (a a year. The July Number of " Peterson's Magazine" is on our table, and is unusually good, even for this unrivalled Monthly. Tho principal embellishment is a spirited steel en graving, "Ahead of the Field," Illustrating an old-fashioned love story. The fashion-plate is on 6teel, nnd richly colored. " Peterson," be It kuown, Is celebrated tor the surpassing style ana beauty ot ins runs lasmou-piates. The stories are all original, and by our very best writers. It gives more for the money than any other. Indeed, it Is a standing won der how so gooda magazine can do published at so low a price, viz.: $3.00 to single subscrib ers, or cl.au to clubs ot lour; but it is to be accounted for, we suppose, by tho enormous circulation, as tuo publisher says, "a small prollt on a larger edition Is better, both for tho public and lor him, than a large profit on a smaller edition." No lady of Uuto ought to bo without " Peterson." Mow 1b the time to subscribe, for the July number begins a new volume, and subscriptions will betaken, 11 de sired, for six months, at half price, so that tho subscription may end with the year.
