No father's lore, no .mother's joy, Nor kin nor kind to take my part. For though a humble home I've found, I eat the bread of charity ; And when the kiss of lore goea round, There i. no kiss, alas ! for me. Yet once I had a father dear, A mother, too, with loving eyes, And tender hand to wipe the tear, If chanced a transient tear to rise. But canso fof tears was rarely found, For all my heart was youthful glee ; And when the kiss of love went round, How sweet a kiss there was for me. But. ah ! there came a war, they said, And why it was I could not tell ; But drums and nfos were loudly played, And loudly rang our village bell. Iu truth it wns a pretty sound, I thought, nor could I ouce forsee That when the kiss of love went round, Thero soon would be no kiss for me. A soldier's ooat my father took, And sword as bright as bright could be; And feathers that so gaily look, All in a shining cap had be. Then bow my little heart did bound ; Alas! 1 thought it fine to see; Nor dreamt thai when the kiss went round, There soon would be no kiss fur me. At length the bolls again did ring, There was a victory, they said ; 'Twaa what my father snid he'd bring ; But, oh ! it brought my fatherdead. My mother shriek'd iu speechless wo She olasped me to her trembling knee; Oh ! may you never never know How wild a kiss sho gave to mo But once again but once again. Those lips a mother's kisses folt ; Thatonco again that onco again The tale a heart of stone would melt. 'Twas when upon her death-bed laid, (l'liat sight iall my life shall see.) "My child ! my child V she feebly said, And gave her last, last kiss to me. xIISCELLANEOUS l'lie ICstilroust Cousliirtor.

Twenty-three meu were seued, aud seven died. Hu land ed the sick at ouce ; thuu closiug the batches of the berth-deck and ward-room, discon nected a joint of the steam beater in each ; and kept them tilled with steam for two hours. At that time the theromotnter Indicated a temperature of two hundred and live degrees in the ward room, and one hun dred and seventy degrees in the berth deck. The work was effectual ; there were no more cases of yellow fever. This method ha for several years been prosecuted at our own qnarntitine with econ omy and success ; but we c!o not remember seeing an account of an example in an in fected port where the disease is indigenous.

That great eunnomicul reform of onr day, tha co operative principle, has presented a new phusu in England in the establishment of a co-operative society of a novel kind, called the Agricultural and Horticultural Association, the first meeting nf which was held some three weeks ago nt Islington. The manuring director, Mr. Oroning, made a report in which ho auiil the society had so far accomplished everything which it had undertaken, aud explained the principle of their association as a limited share capital, by which all liabilities were limited to the amount uf 1 per share. He said the mem bers were to be supplied with the best de scription of implements, manures, cattle, food, seeds, &c, at trade prices, without the intervention of agents' profits; but, in addition to their securing good und unadul terated articles, the wholu of the profits, minus the small charge for working expenses, which did not average more than four per ceut, would find their way into tho pock ets of the members. They would receive a dividend of seven and a half per cent, on the capital and the profits upon their pur chases, minus the working ex peases, the amount returned in thu average of existing co operative associations being six-sevenths of the profits. At present the manufactur ers allowed a rnmmissiuu of something like twenty per cent, to thu agents who sold thu goods, nnd, in the event of tho farmers availing themselves of thu advantages of agricultural co operation, the commission would be saved. Mr. Thomas Hughes, member of Parlia ment, made a speech in which not pretend ing to decide whether thu farmers would find it to their advantage to adopt the co operative principle, hu said it had done a good service to the trade iu preventing adulteration, and frauds in measurement, and had enabled him to save from twelve to fifteen per ceut. in his ow n household expenses. Mr. Groping, in answer to a quesuion, said the amount of capital invest ed in co operative enterprises in England was 1,010.010 ; thu amount lent ou depo sit, Ul 18.023 ; the aggregate profit derived from such enterprises last year, !iTd,Ul?, and thu nverugu ret tun to the individual stockholder thirty-six per cent.

Although there is a falling off as compared with 1808. the decrease is not propui t iuiiats to the decrease iu the crop of 1 SOU us compared with that of 1805, The to'al receipts (estimating Hour us wheat; toot up 50,710,1)05 bushels, against 07,771, 730, bushels received in 1800. and 511,022, 823 bushels in 180.). The dccrflisu, as com pared with 1800, isJ,0M,7i)5 nearly twelve per cent. Flour is less by sonic 43,000 bar rels. Wheat shows an increaeu of 1,120, 000 bushels. Corn has fallen off over ten millions of bushels. Oats exhibit an increase of nearly one million bushels, itye has de creased 000,000 bushels, but hurley shows a gain of 742.000 bushels. This great falling oil' of twelve per cent, if. thu aggregate receipts, w as caused by the disastets which overtook the crops of 1800. Thu rains in August ond September of that year played havoc with wheat, rye ami bar ley and partially so with oats and the damage inflicted on thu coru crop by the early frosts nf September and the late rains retarded its growth and prevented a large portion from reaching maturity The har vest of 18G7 was in nearly every respect a satisfactory one. The grain was large, healthy and well filled, though the yield of wheat was subsequently ascertained to be below the expectation of the trade. The crop of iive was lighter than anticipated. In the east thete wns a fulling in thu crop of barley, but in tho West was a largo one und of excellent quality, better than uuy harvested for several year. The falling off in the receipts of flour is attributable to the low' stage of thu water in all the streams in the West during the past full, and its rela tive cheapness as compared with wheat. The advantage favored the eastern miller instead of thu one ut the West. Tbe Jlt'n WUo lire Attractive. Thu Cleveland Leader, in a recent article, answers the question, "What kind of a man is attractive to women f" in this sensible stjle. This answer can be given iu a few wonts : tiod has so made the sexes that wo men, like children, cling to men ; lean upon t lii-m for protection, care and love ; look up to them as though they were superior iu mind and body. They make them the suns of their system, and they and their children revolve around them. Men are gods if tbey but kuew it, aud women burning incense ut their shrines. Women, therefore, who have good minds and pure hearts want men to lean upon. Think of their reverencing a drunkard, a liar, a tool, or a libertine. II a man would have a womuu do bun a homage he must be manly in every sense ; a true geu tlctnan, uot utter the Chesterfield school, but polite because his heart is full of kind ness to ull ; one who treats her w ith respect, even delereuce, because sue is a woman ; who never condesceuds to suy sillv things to her; who brings her up to his level, if bis mind is abuve hers ; who is never over unxious to pleuse, but always anxious to do light ; w ho has no time to be frivolous with her; always dignified in speech and act; who never spends too much upon ber; never yields to tempta tion, even if she puts it in his way ; who is ambitious to make his mark in the world, whether she encourages him or not ; who is never familiar with her to thu extent of be ing an adopted brother or cousin ; who is not over careful about dress; always pleasant and considerate, but always keeping bis place at the bead, aud never losing it. Such deportmeut, with noble principles, a good mind, energy aud industry, will win any woman in the land w ho is worth winning. There are forty-five native professional photographers in Osacka Japan.

The Adulteration vf Woman, WHAT VKHUANT OREKN FOUND OUT ON 1113 WEDDIN'O NIGHT. Verdant bad lived an unsophisticated life until he had reached tho ripe age of twenty one. About that time a neighbor of V'a father employed a governess from New York. V. met her at a picnic, and as she was the first lady be had ever met that could make him feel at ease in her society, he fell vio lently in love with her. His bashfulness, under the skilful tutelage of tbe governess, wore rapidly away, and ere long be bad consented to become her bridegroom. The bridal party stopped at a Cincinnati hotel, and, after many a weary hour, the most momentous moment in a man's whole life arrived for Verdant. On two chairs was piled n pyramid of rkirts, etc., and on a tablo near tho head of the bed the astonished eve of Verdant be held a sight which filled hiin with horror. There were fa!s calves, false hips, false pal pitators and false hair. In one tumbler of water w as a full set of Talse teeth ; from another a glass eye stared at tho bewildered bridegroom. How long he stood. Verdant knnweth not; but, Hfter awhile a hollow and strange voice from under thu bed clothes addressed hi in thus : "Why don't you come to bed, dear I'' "So I would, but by I don't know whether to get into bed or on the table." Composition to Stop Leakage. A cor respondent of tbo Lynn Xeus gives a recipe for a cheap composition, wilh which leaks in roofs may bo effectually stopped. Having a leaky "L," he says: "I made a composi tion of four pounds of rosin, one pint of lin seed oil, and one ounce red lead, and appli ed it hot with a brush to the part where the 'L' was joined to the main house. It has never leaked since. I then recommended the composition to my neighbor, who had a dormer window which leaked badly. He applied it, and the leak was stopped. I made my water-cask tight by this composi tion, and have recommended it for chimneys, windows, ic, nnd it has always proved a cure for a leak." ScrcEss Makes Enemies. They who are eminently successful iu business or who uchieve greatness, or evan notoriety in any pursuit, mtiBt expect to make enemies. So prone to selfishness, to petty jealousy and sordid envy, is poor human nature, that whoever becomes distinguished is sure to be a mark for tho malicious spite of those who, not deserving success themselves, are goaded by the merited triumph of tbe more worthy. Moreover, tho opposition which originates iu such despicable motives, is sure to bo of the most unscrupulous charac ter; hesitating at no iniquity; descending t) me snanuiest littleness. Opposition, if it bu honest and manly, is not in itself undesirable. The competi tor in life's struggles who is of true metal, deprecates not opposition of an honorable character, but bo rather rejoices in it. It is only injustice or meanness which he depre cutes and despices; anil it is this which the successful must meet, proportioned in bit terness, oft times, to the measure of success which excites it.

Suppore a man and girl were married the man thirty-five years old, and tbe girl five years ; this makes tlio man seven times as old as the girl ; they live to gether until tbe girl is ten years old, this makes him forty years old, and four times as old as the girl ; they live together until sho is fifteen, the mau being forty-five; this makes the man three times as old ; they still live until she is thirty year old ; this makes the man sixty, aud ouly twice as old, and so on.
