Wc are expending1 too much human and animal muscle where metal and wood would serve a better purpose. Wc go without a machine U-causc it costs $100 oreven less.and employ two men to d) the work which tlie investment would enable one man to perform. In so doin we regard the value of the extra man ns only $100, and as wc so regard him, he is apt to underestimate his own value, and his powers to a certain ex tent lie undeveloped or dormant. Nor is the laborer the only sufferer the whole community is a loser; each man has exerted but half his produc tive capacity. In the West there has ltccn more improvemeut in this re spect than elsewhere. At the South the constant cry is more labor, when in reality the n!ed is more machinery, and more brain to make it available. We need to give employment to the large unproductive element in the .South, by introducing manufacturing machinery, which they may operate. And then we need to introduce ma chinery on the farm to make our farm force more effective. The pitting of manual force against Fteam or water power, or against labor-saving machinery is recognized among manufacturers as sheer folly ; and it is every whit as much no upon the farm as in the factory. We only need educating up to the thinking paint, to comprehend it. The ireen t'oanlrymsn. Years ago, into a wholesale gro cery store in Ucistori walked a tall, muscular looking, raw-boned man, ev idently a fresh comer from some Vat k town in Maine or New Hamp- hire, accosting the first person he met, who happened to be the mer chant himself, he asked : "You don't want to Lire a man in your store, do you ?" "Well," said the merchant, "I don't know. What can you do ?" "IoJv said the man; 'I tather guess I can turn my hand to most anything. What do you want done?" "Well, if I was to hire a man, it would be one that cold lift well, a strong, wiry follow one, for instance, that could shoulder a sack of cofue, like that one yonder, and carry it across the store and never lay it down." "There, now, captain," said our couutrymuu, "that's just me. What will von give a man that can suit you f " "I tell von," said the merchant, "if you will shoulder that sack of coffee, and carry it across the store, and never lay it down, I will hire you for a year at one hundred dollars per month." "Done," said the stranger ; and by this time every clerk in the store had gathered around, and were waiting to join in the laugh against the man, who, walking to the Rack, threw it across his shoulder with perfect case, as it was not extremely heavy, and walked with it twice across the floor ; went quietly to a large hook which was fastened into the wall, and, hang ing the sack upon it, turned to the merchant, and said : "There, now, it may hangthere till doomsday ; I shan't never lay it down. What shall I go about, mister ? .Just give me plenty to do. and one hundred dollars a month, ami its all right." The clerks broke into a laugh, but it was out of the other side of their mouths; and the merchant, discomfit ted et satisfied, kept to his agr"e ment, and to-day the green country man is the senior partner in the firm, and worth half a million dollars. provid r. ti A i.i. v in h i:ti:i. Amoiisr ;lio attendants at a late Methodist Conference was a large, beautiful and intelligent looking young lady, who drew the admiring gaxe ;f mmy eyes, particularly mas culine eyes, always on the lookout for feminine faces. During the in transmission at noon, a spruce young minister stepped up to the presiding elder and said, with an air of secrecy; 4I)id you observe the young lady who sat bv the fir.-t pillar on the left ?" "Yes," said the elder; "What of her?" "Why," said the young man,"I feel impressed that the Liord desires me to take that ladj- for my wife. I think she would make a good compan ion and helpmate in the work of the ministry." The elder, as a good Christian ought, had nothing to object. Uut, in a few moments, another candidate for ministerial efforts, hon ors, and the. name of husband, came confidentially to make known a like iuipcssion regarding the same identi cal young lady. "You bad Utter wait a while. It is not bcrt to be too hasty in deter mining the source of such impres sions," said the prudent elder. And he said well, for hardly were the steps of the second youth cold at his side ere a third approached with the same story, and while the worthy confidant still marveled, a fourth drew near, with the question: "Did you notice the fine.noble-look-ing woman on your left?" 'Yes," cried the swelling elder "Well, sir," went on tbe fourth vic tim of that unsuspicious girl, "it is Krongly borne in upon my mind that it is the will of the Lord that I should make proKsals of marriage to the lady. He has impressed me that she U to be my wife." The eldr could hold in no longer. "Impossible! impossible!" he ex claimed in an excited tone : "the Lord never could have intended that four men should marry that one woman!"

In the good old steamboat days, i the steamboats plying between New - w r . w ,1 .'w tT uneans ana ct. IjOuis, uuu .cw vi leans and Cincinnati, never made a trip without carrying one or more chevalier d'induntrir, who turned any trick that came in Lis way, from robbing a stateroom to wringing in a flat on a cold deck in a game of draw poker. The men were invariably well dressed and gentlemanly, and were rarely without a roll of $1,500 or $2,000. " They generally traveled in pairs, as it was frequently possible for one of the fakirs to render his companion valuable assistance, espe cially in a little game of draw, where the dealer would stock the cards, slip 'the cut and deal in such a manner as to give the man at his left a full hand, but to furnish his partner with a larger full. The victim, if smart, would "tumble to the game and jump it," after getting outrageously beaten once or twice" on almost iuvincible hands, but the blacklegs would al ready have made enough to pay them well for the trip. One of the most noted of the professionals was Hum phrey Davis, a small, dapper and rather good looking man of perhaps thirty years of age, who traveled al most continually on the boats, but made his home in New Orleans, where Le supported a woman in luxu rious style. He was not married to her.but seemed to entertain an unusual affection for her, and treated her with the utmost tenderness, although he was naturally cold and unscrupulous. He weighed ouly 120 or 123 pounds, but his word was never disputed by his reckless companions, who knew that he would brook contradiction or interference from no one, and that his hand readily foil on the hilt of a knife or the handle of a revolver. Unlike many of the others, he frequently traveled alone, and was al-ayBlvady test his f-kill in a game of poker with one or more strangers, but the profession a!s who knew him only by reputation hesitated at trying to beat IjIiii by illegitimate nieaus, well knowing that, should the cheat be dis covered, it would involve the loss of their money, if not their lives. On one occasion, when coming up from New Orleans, Davis met a party who expressed a desire to engage in a little poker, and, as he manifested no reluctance, they all adjourned to the cabin after supper, and whecliuga ta ble, commenced to play. One of the party was a man standing over six feet in his stockings, and a perfect giant in muscle and strength. lie had heard of Davis, but probably underestimated his shrewdness or courage, and determined to wiu his money by raising cold bauds from his lap and playing them. While he was reserving material for an invincible hand, Davis noticed it but said noth ing, and the game went on. Finally, Davis received a more than ordinarily good hand, and bet fifty dollars ( ii it. The giant adroitly changed the hand given him for the reserve on his knee, and thinking the manoeuvre had not leen observed, raised the original bet one hundred dollars more. Davis saw the one hundred raise, and in turn raised one hundred dollars. The other, thinking he had a sure thing, raised two hundred dollars more, and so it went until $C00 or $700 were up, and Davis called. The giant threw the stolen hand on the table, and Davis quietly remarked, after looking at it, "That's a good hand." The other assented, and reached to draw the money in, when Davis said, "Don't touch that just yet." - "Why not " said Goliah, "I have the best hand." "I say, don't touch it," repeated Davis, whose eyes were beginning to gleam, although he was outwardly calm and collected. "Yes, I will touch it," said the other in a sneering way, as he swept the money towards him with his arms, lie had barely placed his arms on the table when Davis reached over the table with his left hand and caught him by the hair, while with his right he drew a revolver and fired point blank at his body. Although shot through the chest the vitality of the man was so remarkable that the wound appeared to affect him but little, and rising to his feet he caught Davis by the hair with his right hand, and throwing his right arm about him, forced his head back with the in tention, he afterwards said, of break ing his neck. Davis comprehended his design in nn instant, and, quick as lightning, fired two shots into the giaut's shoulder, completely crippling his arm. He then sent another ball through his left arm, and as he fell back into his chair fired the fifth shot, the bullet passing through his antag onist's right arm near the elbow, severing one f the tendons. The wounded man's friends had, in the meantime, crowded back out of the way, and Davis swept his pistol, which still contained one load, around the table once or twice, and, still holding it in his right hand, culled at tention to the cards which the black leg had dropped, and coolly remark ed, "I lolil you not to touch that money, but you would do it." lie then crumpled up the bills in his left hand, crammed them into his pocket, and, unmolested, retired to his state room, where he reloaded his pistol and packed his portmanteau. At the next landing be U ft the boat without interference, and was quickly lost to sight as Le climbed up the landing and entered the woods. It was probably owing to two rea sons that the officers of the lioat or the passengors made no attempt to detain him. In the first place, it was evident to ail of them that the suffer er had attempted to swindle or rob him, and he (Davis) licing much the smaller and weaker man, they felt a sympathy for him, not unmixed with a species of admiration at his cool ness and nerve. Secondly, most of them knew him by sight or reputa tion, and did uot care to hazard their lives in tu attempt to arrest him when they could gain nothing by 60 doing. The wounded man was assis ted to Ixd by his friends, and a phy sician was called to attend him. Strange to say, he recovered, but for weeks after arriving at St. Louis, and ltccoming sufficiently convalescent to walk the streets, he carried both of his arms in a slhig. Davis remained away from town some time, but finally reappeared here, and officer Patrick M'Donough, seeing and recognizing him, arrested him, but in the attempt was stabbed, and rather badly wounded in the side. The man shot, for some reason best known to himself, refused or failed to appear to prosecute him, and that case was dismissed on a nolle prose qui. How the case against him for assault with intent to kill upon officer M'Donough was disposed of the Democrat informant did not remem ber, but Davis was probably released on bail and jumped his bond Miss ouri Democrat.

There is but little in the practico of Japanese agriculture that the Amer ican farmer can profitably imitate. I might say, though not quite so posi tively, there is little in American ag ricultural practice that Japan can can profitably adopt, no great is the difference in seasons, people, and in stitutions. But while the American farmer finds but little in Japanese ag rienlliirnl nractiee of value, there is certainly much in its spirit worthy of his attention and study, meiriuoi ough tillage.preferring rather to culti vate well than much ; tbe care with which they husband and apply ma nures; their diligence in cuunuimg forest trees for timber, ornament, and shade, are tvortby olall emulation and nraise. In Japan the Government has the absolute proprietorship of all the land, and this is farmed out to the peasantry, the Government tax being something over one-half of all pro duced. Under this system the life of the peasant is usually one of unre mittinr toil and wretchedness. His farm rarely exceeds in size a few square rods, but this he tills ao well and thoroughly that tl.e umount produced is a matter of surprise to foreigners. In early sprin , if on the uplands, the wheat "or barely is sown in drills about one foot apart This is carefully and repeatedly hoed, and liouid manure applied during the sea son. To manure the plant seems to be the object rather than to fertilize the soil; and it is certain that the liquid from which all manures aro ap plied here best acconipiisncs mat obieet. About the time the grain is" in the bloom another crop is Bown between the rows of standing crain. and thus two and often three crops are grown from the same con- j ducted season. ; Perhaps the uiont serious obstacle to the introduction of new sorts, as well as to the prosecution of old meth ods of farming, is the number ana va ricty of insect enemies that contend with the agriculturists. I am con vinced that butforthe abundance and cheapness of labor there are few plants that could be profitably culti vated here. As it is, none but the hardiest aud most rapid growing are attempted. The growing of the ap ple tree has been repeatedly attempt ed in Yokohama and vicinity, yet thev rareiy survive more than two years from the time of planting. The present season I have seen Swedish turnips tried, but- the way in which the vicrts oleracea swooped tlown ui on the plants as soon as they appear ed will forbid a repetition of the ex periment. The truth is Japan is reaping the legitimate fruit of yielding an indis criminate protection to all kinds of birds. I irearms to the masses Here are unknown, and indeed any other kind of offensive weapons except the everlasting sword. Not one Jap in a hundred ever drew the trigger. Thus left to themselves in the "strug- cle fr life," the voracious, greedy crows and hawks became "masters of the situation ;" and so far as my ob servation has extended, the small, or insect-eating birds really valuable to the agriculturist, have become all but extinct. Their eggs as soon as deposited become the food of crows and hawks; or should they pass the egg stage, their fate is sealed as soon as they leave their hiding place. The crows and hawks, on the contrary, are omnipresent They caw and scream at vou trom well-nigh every thatched roof; and with impudence only equalled by their greed, stand ready to catch every unlucky bit or fish that escapes froia the chop sticks of the natives. In cultivation both the people aud Government manifest a most com mendable zeal. Stringent laws cx ist to restrict the cutting and encour age the planting of timber. Little groves of Kiakas, cedars and japoni- cas, dot every hill side and adorn every valley. I question whether there is another country in the world densely populated as Japan, that can show an equal breadth of timber growth. Nearly all the houses arc of wood, and wood is exclusively the fuel of the people; yet there is no dearth nor dread of future failures, no rubbing of musty political econo mies, or new theories, to explain our conduct when the "timber suppliy" shall be no more. The exercise of the same common sense and forecast in regard to a crop twenty or thirty years in maturing, that we arc com pelled to exercise with annual or bi- ennal crop, is the Japanese substitute for our ever present fears, and scarcity, with consequent high prices Cor retjxndent of the Prairie Fanner. The History of the Flajr. Tha following history of the flag of our Union will doubtless interest ma n v of our readers : The stars and stripes bccaniethc national flag of the United States of America by virtue of a resolution of Congress, passed June Mth, 1777 "Resolved, That the flag of the thir teen United State sbc thirteen stripes, alternate red and white ; that the Union be thirteen stars, white, in a blue field, representing a new constel lation." This resolution appears in the journal of Congress, volume sec ond, page 195. Although passed on the date given above, it was not made public until September Sd, in the same year, when it appeared in the Uoston Gazette and Country Jour nal. The flag seems 16 have been the result of the work commented by Washington, Dr. Franklin, Mr. Lynch, Mr. Harrison and Col. Jo seph Heed. On the 2d of January 1770, Washington was in the Ameri can camp at Cambridge, organizing the new army that was that day cre ated. The "committee of conference, consoling of Franklin, Lynch and Harrison, sent by Congress to arrange with Washington the details of the army, were with him. Colonel Reed, one of the aides-de-camp, was also Secretary of the Committee of Confer ence. The several designs of flags had long occupied the thoughts of Reed and his associates. The flag in use by the army was a plain red field, with the Rritish union of the crosses of St. Andrew, St George, and St Patrick on the upper left cor ner. Several gentlemen from Boston sent to the American camp copies of the King s speech. It was received on the date mentioned above, and the effect is described in the Jiritia an nual I.'rgitfrr, 1776, page 147, thus: "The arrival of the copy of the King's speech, with an account of the fate of the petition from tho Continental Congress, is said to have excited the greatest de gree of rage and indignation among them ; as a proof of which the former was burnt in the camp ; and they are said, on this occasion, to have chang ed their colors from a plain red ground, which they had hitherto used, to a flag of thirteen stripes, as a sym bol of the number and union of the colonics." The use of the stripes to mark the number of States on the flag cannot be clearly traced, but may be accounted for by a custom of the camp at Cam bridge The army of citizen volun teers comprised alt graacs oi meu. Very few were uniformed. It was al most impossible for the sentinels to distinguish general officers from pri vates. Frequently officers were stopped at tbe outposts and held for identiiication until tnc arrival oi mc officer of tho day. Orders were is sued that the different grades of ofli- cers snouia oo aistinguisncu oy a stripe of colored ribbon woru across the breast. Washington, as commander-in-chief, wore a ribbon of light blue Tho stars on the blue field "a new constellation" were suggested by the constellation Lyra, time-honored as an emblem of Uuion. j i ne mirieca stars oi tue new iuumci lation were placed as the circumfer ence of a circle, and on a blue field, in accordance with the resolution al ready given. That was the flag used at Burgoyne's surrender, Oct. 17, 1777. By a resolution of Con gress, passed January 12, 17!'5, the flag was changed to fifteen stars and stripes. That was the flag of 1312. By a resolution passed April 4, 1818, to tike effect on the following July 4th,the flag was again changed to one of thirteen stripes and tweuly stars, and a new star, to represent a new State, ordered to be placed on the 4th of July following the admis sion of such State. The flag planted on the National Palace in Mexico had thirty stars, it now carries thirty seven. mi. . .1 r . i ...1 Cblrasro Enerarj . Mr. J. T. Fields, who has ju.-t re turned from his first visit to the West, gave his new lecture on "Masters of the Situation" in Cambridge, on Tues day evening. The followinir refer ence in it to what he witnessed in j (. htcago will interest every one: " A feu hours ago 1 stood for the first time in the great city of Chicago, amazed at the spectacle before me. I had read, as wc all had, how just one year ago that noble metropolis of the West had been mown down, as by a scythe of fire, and all of us had shud: dcred at the tale of horror as related by eye witnesses on the spot. I re member how the usual band of croak ers came forward with the usual shake of the head and prophecied that her glory bad departed forever, nnd that Chicago would never be rebuilt Three square miles o fits area, seventy-three magnificent streets, eighteen thousand buildings, many of them the finest in the city, forty beautiful churches, were transformed in two days into one vast waste a heap of hideous ruin. Two hundred mill ions of property became ashes in forty-eight hours ! Only one year had elapsed, and I dreaded to look on such a desolated scene of a catastrophe unparalelled in the historj- of modern cities. But when last week, I walked through those very streets, the scene of all that terrible havoc of fire, I saw such an illustration of the subject I am now discussing with you, that all the oth er incidents I have cited are dwarfed and reidered insignificant by compar ison. Instead of ruin I find such a grandeur of restoration and strength of enterprise, euch an overwhelming result of indomitable will, unfailing in dustry and courage, that I almost doubted the evidence of my senses and could scarcely believe that any such conflagration as we have heard of aud read of had occurred at all ! Collossal structures, miles upon miles of palatial business and domestic edi fices, richly ornamented with statutes and intaglios unequalled for beauty of design in any other of our great cit ies, arc up already, and your eyes arc bewildered by magnificence, instead of being blasted by deformity. Surely this is the mastery of a tremendous situation ; over which we in common with our kin of the West may well be exultant, and for one I rejoice that I belong to the same race with those stout-hearted sons and daughters of Chicago, who are now teaching a les son of patient endurance and well di rected enterprise to the world, such as was never witnessed before in the whole broad history of civilization." Wbere's theConrouiided Mother. A gentleman who has been travel ing on the Hudson River relates the following incident : I noticed a serious-looking man, who was taking care of a crying baby, and doing everything he could to still its sobs. As the child became restless in the berth, the gentleman took it in his arms and carried it to and fro in the cabin. The sobs of the child irrita ted a man who was trying to read, until he blurted out loud enough for tbe father to hear : "What does he want to disturb the whole cabin with that baby for ?" The man only nes tled the baby more quietly in his arms, without saying h word : but the baby began crying again. "Where's the confounded mother, that she don't stop its noise ?" continued the irrita ted grumbler. At this the father came up to the man and said: "I am very sorry we disturb ycu, sir, but my dear baby's mother is in her coffin down in the baggage-room. I'm taking her back to Albany, where we used to live." The hard hearted man buried his face in shame, but in a moment, wilted by the terrible re buke, he was bvthc side of the grief- stricken father, helping him tend the babv. FarArrs Should Tiait. One of the most imnortant duties of the farmer in to visit his neighbor. Be neighborly ; be Bocial ; let out those srood social feclinis: make them grow ; go see your neighbor ; and learn of hia success : exchanjc ideas : confer with one another. If our far mers" wonld do this, if each farmer ould onlv visit around his whole neighborhood once everv three months, a world of good would be ac complished. The social virtues ould be promoted, and useful knowl edge gained. Fotato Salad. Who has uot cat- en and relished that famous German dirh potato salad 1 This is the way it is made : Cut ten or twelve cold, boiled potatoes into slices from a quar ter to half an inch thick ; put into a salad-dish with four table-spoonfuls tarragon or plain vinegar, six table spoonfuls of best salad oil, one tabb spoonful of minced parsley, and pt , -per and salt to taste ; stir well, that all be thoroughly mixed. It should be made two or three hours before need ed on the table. Anchovies, olives, or any pickles, may be added to this salad, as also cold beef, chicken or turkey, if desired, but it U excellent without these. Deaths from the horse disease in Washington City hare averaged about thirty per day. Skvkbal vessels laden with ovstcrs for England hare departed from the lower Chesapeako this season.
