Today I was lookimj over the valued relics of by-gone jears, ao3 treasury among them, I found a soft browo curl of babyhair, tied with a faded ribbon. The tb reads of old gleamed as brightly through it, as on 'hat day when it was i-evered, and as the time recurred more forcibly to my tneniory, through the tuidft rif my t9rrs, I saw coma forth from the Mirnny past, the fairy-like form ol a little child. l With bounding, graceful step she came nearer still, the soft browu curls t(sed bacls,.5auJ orQwned wiilt "earl -Spriffg j.iWs.'het'oaft of liich -iwas fairer, cr more beautiful', than tLe waxeo brow they encircled; the da-k blu eyes sparklin; with iuerrjtiieu, and th. baby 1 pi lisping in the grntlest, clearest of Laby tones. '-It is my birth day." . J Like music from heavep, the Founds i f th'i silver' voice stoln c?er me, and as I iazed uj ou the chi d-like form I w ndt'ted, cot 1 i one of (ixl's angels be more marvclously beautitu'. Rapidly memory carrieJ u.e oy r the space of months which finished the spau of that short, bright, lile, crowding upon each other recollectiors of balmy fuusmcr days, when res' less little feet. paHered up and down, and a tiny figure flitted here an 1 there, eluding my f;ra.sp oi spring awy aud '-peep" with the wiDcsome face.

Th;'ii came sileue, sij peuse, and then the crowning ag) y. In a darkened room ttn-(iuh which hushed fout-tteps were petnly passing, there was a little erio, huur with gar lands while, and trithiu it lay a little child clothed in snowy robes, aud asleep among the flowers. ihe tired feet were still, aud the dimpLvl hands were cla?ped with all the innocent grace of childhood, the silky ringlets were smoothed away from the baby-brow, and crown nr its tnatlle whiteness a wreath of flowers, summer flowers now, and purely white.

Rut. say many, "We are not able to build Cisterns." Let nio.showyou that you are not only able to build cisterns, bat that you can make, money and have health to enjoy it, by at least building oq good cistern, just as soon as you can find a competent man to do it, evca if you borrow the money to jay him. I take it for granted that, yr.u, drink Well water, and that Well water, ii. he ch ef catisp of your sickness. Now the average cost aod loss of lime on account of sickness in every family in thii county is not less than ten d l lars a year. Fifty dollars will build a cistern large enough to supply a small family, and one hundred dollar will build a cistern f - abr.Ut" 100 barrels capacity, aud aa iucreasea size can be huilt propurtionately cheaper. Now il you have a Well, you can afford to build a cifteni, which pays you in ni')tie3' profit at least ten per cent, per annum. If you havq no well and ex pect to dig.otje, you will tnukp st til more by bu Uiug a cisteru instead of a well. N Some of the richest districls of the Cotton States could not be cultivated or settk'd until a good supply of rain water was ob'ained. b'uch were the qad effects of well and spring water, that many plantations were abandoned until good Cisterns werj builc und a supply of rain water obtained. Soon after the salutory resul e of good Rain Wa'er was known no plantation was without from one to a half dozen cist erns, aud no part of the South, cao show a better Bill of hedrh. th;in these once loafer-poisoned districts. These facts lean affirm from personal kuowl edge, as I built many of the cisterns in the ootton districts, ivfered to, my self, from the year 18'J3 to ISGf. The able and jusily distinguished writer I first quoted, treats the whole subject of Diet aod Drink with such force and appropriateness, that I pre fer to let him pcak her in my place. lie sayr, ''Diet and Drink exeici cs such au influence upon us all, phys ically and morally, too much care cannot be observed as tq the .rjualitv of what we eai and drink. Much of our conduct depends upon what we cat and drink. Ronaparte used to at tribe te the loss of oue of h's battles to a poor uiuuer. which at the time disturbed his digestion. 11 ow many "of our misjudgments ; how many of our deliberate errors ; how many ol our uuUindnes-es ; our crul'-ie-i, our acts of thoughtlessness, and reckless -?ss may be actually owing to a cause of the sa ne character. We eat or drink something that deranges the condition of the stomach, lh rough the stomach nerve! that derangement im mediately affects the brain. Morose uess succeeds amiability, and under its influence we do that wh.cli would shock our sensibility at : ny other moment.."
