In the bos*in of a valley, Summer green, Hides a slender-figured maiden Called. Luline : Light of foot as any fairy 'Neath the moon ; Light of heart as oriole, wukisg Slumbrous June. Not for ber the empty homage * Men bestow, Nor for her the tides of fashion Ebb aud flow ; But the bonnie children greet ber Every day, As she gathers honey-suckles, Fair as they. If you knew her, if you knew her, My Luline, You would call her of all maidens Qurenliest Queen ; Not because the diainoDds glisten In her hair They aro only morning dew-drops Sparkling there. But a nobler type of beauty Brooding lies. 'Neath the drooping, languid lashes Of her eyes : You wonld know her soul no plcbian From the first ; Royal oatures loom so grandly, Valley-nursed. Should you wander to this valley World -unseen, You would find her 'mong the roses, My Luline : And would dream forever after Of the grace Permeating like a sunbeam, Form and taee, loach ber not, oh sordid passions, With your breath ; D.u-h no storm of early sorrow, Cold as death. On the white brow of my darling, My Luline, Throned among the regal roses, Queenliest Queen. fljisf aifii JJttnrfoisf. H hen does act itninal resemble an old book ? When be is bound over.

As my wife and I, at the window one day, Stood watching a man with a monkey, A cart came by, with a "broth of a boy," Who was driving a stout little donkey. To my wife I then spoke, byway of a joke, "There's a relation of your's in that carriage;" So which she replied,as the donkey she spied, "Ah. yes, a relation—by marriage." A country girl one morning went To market with a pig : The little curl-tail, not content, Began to squeal a jig.

The country girl thus quick replies, "So bad a breeding had he, That ever and anon be cries, When'er he sees Ins daddy." "What's fashionable I'll maintain Is always right," cues sprightly Vane. "Ah, would to Heaven !" says graver Sue, "What's right, were latbionable loo."

SOUTHERN DEVOTION. It is again bright summer in the South, and the whole land is once more gay with bloom and redolent with a hundred per fumes. Unmindful of the strifes or sor rows of men, nature has, after her custom ary fashion, put on joyous smiles, and ar rayed herself in her most gorgeous vest ments. For weeks past the southern peo ple have been awaiting the advent of the season. They were looking for no idle holiday, no pleasant excursion, no stately pageant. But with the coming of the summer now, the people of that section are summoned to a sad and tender duty. The reappearance of the flowers brings the op poitunity for testifying anew to the affec tionate remembrance in which they hold the dead who laid down their lives in the tremendous conflict which has left the South conquered and undone. And now, from all places within her borders, we leain that the people arc daily engaged in the pious work of decorating afresh the graves of the fallen. In silent and solemn procession men, women and little children stream out from tho towns and the villages laden with flowers and evergreens and be take themselves to the cemeteries. Busi ness is suspended while this loving tribute is being paid to the dead No tomb is forgotten. The giave of the stranger who fell in their defence is piled higher than that of a brother with floral wreaths ; and we read that the spots where repose the bones of soldiers of whom it is recorded that they were • unknown,' are left hidden beneath roses and the myrtle, This annu al custom by which a conquered people testifies its devotion to the memory of those who died in a cause which has per ished, though connected with harrbwing associations is fruitful of good. It binds suffering communities together in ties of closer sympathy, thus enabling them to hear with their distresses with serener for titude, and it teaches the young to emulate the honor and manhood which are so ten derly commemorated, 'i he South has few consolations to turn to in her wretched ness. AN UNLUCKY DIVORCR.— James Si. Grant, of Bridgeport, recently obtained a divorce from his wife Julia, and the fact was announced in the Bridgeport Farmer. The next day Mrs. Grant informed the public through the columns of the same paper that the notice waithe first she had heard of the matter. Last week Mrs. Grant received information from England that a deceased lelative had left her be tween 80 and $90,0u0, and Mr. Grant is said to be somewhat dingusted at the turn which affairs have taken, and ii fruitlessly lamenting that he obtained that divorce. — Mrs. Grant will be recollected by our citi zens as a resident of Hartford for a con sideaable period, and at especially distin guished for her cquestrianship, she having becu awarded premiums at several Stale , fairs.— Jlartford Post. WHITE SLAVERY NORTH. Sewing Girls and Women of New York. A writer in the Revolution gives the following sad picture of the life led by sew ing girls and women in New York. It is unfortunately too true; "Of the thirty thousand women now out of employment in this wilderness of a city, twenty thousand are said to be sew ing girls. There arc, first, the shop girls who sit in long rows up and down the length of dreary workshops, or piled in promiscuously in less pretentious estab lishments. Then there are the dressma kers, tlie cloakmakers, tailoresses, seam stresses, and takers in of shop work. A picture of one of the vast establishments, where shop girls work, will do for all the rest. Large, well lighted show rooms at tentive salesmen, watchful floor walkers, spry little cash bevs—all these will the ea ger buyers find in the lower rooms. Down staiis to see the evening dresses, where brilliant gas jets flame out to show out the effects ;up stairs to see the bargains in cloaks and shawls; wherever they go the same gonial light and soft radiance is thrown. The work room is a very differ ent place to the show rooms, however.— On the third floor are the fitst work rooms. They arc large and well lighted, though but poorly ventilated. The impression up on one's mind is that a breath of Iresh air has not entered that close atmosphere for a long time, and yet the windows are thrown open every night at sweeping hour. But one must remember, when sixty hu man beings, some of them with diseased lungs and horrid breath, work in these rooms ten hours per day, that it is almost impossible to keep these in a proper con dition. These are the lace workers and muslin finishers. They prepare those delicate articles of lingerie which so wins one's heart from the window or case where they hang. Infant's robes are made, babe's baskets are thoroughly prepared here.— The girls look tired, even at an hour be fore noon. They bend over shockingly, and nearly all of them have sore eyes and sorer hearts, poor things. Six dollars a week is the average price made here.— Some make nine. The majoriry only make five. The fourth floor, one immense room, running over the whole building fioin back to front, and from side to side, is occupied by cloakmakers. There are four long tables down the centre of the room, arid smaller ones placed a little to the side. Here, during the brisk season, n.nety-five girls work. Now the number cannot be more than twenty. " The women working here seemed more cheerful than those on the lower floor ; but they, too, are overtaxed and al- , low themselves to die by inches just be cause they fancy they are making an hon est livelihood. They average more than the muslin workers. Some of them can make ten dollars a week, but these are old hands at the business. On the fifth floor is a smaller work room than either of the others. It is devoted to making up plain underwear for ladies and children. There are about twenty five or thirty employed here, pale, wan and sickly; but, strange enough, more contented with their lot than those of either of the floors below. I ask ed one old lady, whose age would surely entitle her to rest, how she liked to work here ? She replied, " I thank God that I can take-care of myself in my old age ! " She is sevi nty-two years of age, and earns three dollars a week. God help her. I conlil not help wondering how in the woild she managed to reach the fifth story with her poor rheumatic limbs and feeble strength. As it divining my thoughts, she said " To be sure, it's a good ways up, and I have to come very slowly; but after I once get here there is rest for me until night." A little creature of thirteen, but who looked no more than nine, was bas ting hems in a corner. She was only learning she said, and had been there two weeks, but in a fortnight more she would be paid for working. Upon asking her " how much, " she answered with a proud inflection of voice, " five dollars a month." The faces of the employers throughout this establishment generally wore a shock ed, startled expression as they were for ever on the rack. A great majority seem ed to be suffering with lung and throat diseases. Poorly paid, illy clothed and fed, they go from one year to another. Kelly of Pennsylvania, has been elevat ed among the Radical apostles to the po sition held by Judas of old. "He carries the bag, " and is now on a begging tour through the States to get money for the coming campaign. Contributing Repub licans will do well to secure themselves by demanding a receipt in full from Kelly in every instance. There are circumstances attending this demagogue's former posi tion of treasurer of the Democratic fund in Philadelphia which inculcate the utmost watchfulness of his financial course. The trial of John 11. Surratt has again been postponed for another term. His counsel are endeavoring to secure his re lease on bail. The Radicals are too busy with Andrew Johnson to think of trying minor criminals like Surratt and Davis. Money is being subscribed by (he good people of Great Bend toward erecting a bouse for McLaughlin, who lost three chil dren by the destruction of his residence by fire recently. Th* Southern papers print the Wash burne-Donnelly debate, probably as a warning to the negroes what they may yet be reduced to when they get into Con gress. TERMS, $2.00 Per.

COUGHING HORSES. It is well known that feeding horses on clover hay often makes them cough, but tho why and wherefore may Pot he so generally known. From very extensive observation I have become satisfied that the manner of feeding hay to horses is the caue. The us ual custom is to let them draw it through a rack, thus stripping off the fine dust which adheres to the stalk, which being drawn into the lungs in respiration, produces the cough—that is the rack—and allowing the animal to take their food in the natural way I have removed all of mine, and BOW feed my horses on the barn floor, having a breast work sufficiently high for them to eat over. In this way they can be fed on hay without raising a dust, they get none under their feet, and the labor of cleaning out the man gers is saved. Whatever is left is easily pushed out with a rake into the yard for the cattle. The dust on the hay will do the horses no harm if taken into the stomach.— Since making the improvement above men tioned in my feeding apparatus, I am not troubled with coughing horses. There ia no patent on my invention ; my brethren can use it freely. CPRE FOR HOG CHOLERA.—I write to send a core for the hog cholera that 1 know to bo good, and a certain care, eo far as I haTo tried it. Not to trespass on jour space, I will give it in a few words. When a hog is first found to have the cholera, throw it on its back ; put a piece of tar, about the size of a hickory nut, on the end of a stick ; put it down its throat ; be sure 'us swallowed. I have tried it on a good many and cured every one. One in particular was so far. gone as to have lost one of his legs. I lost a great many before this was tried. I clipped their ears and tail, but think that should he left off, as it oniy weakens them. All hogs that look droopy are benefited by tar. Some recom mend rolling corn in tar, but I don't thiDk the hog swallows enough in that way to be benefitted. RECIPE,FOR WHITEWASH.—WE. FIND the fallowing recipe for making what is claimed to be superior whitewash, in our exchanges. This whitewash ts composed of Paris white and white transparent glue. The proportions are sixteen pounds of the white to a half a pound of the glue. The latter ta covered with cold water at night,and in the morning care fully heated, without scorching, until dissolv ed. The Paris white is stirred in with hot water enough to give the proper milky con sistency for applying to the walls, and the dissolved glue is then added and thoroughly mixed. Tt is applied with a brush in the us ual way and it the walls are not very dirty, one coat will prove sufficient. LOOK OUT FOR CURRANT WORMS It will soon be time to look out for the currant worm, which for two or three years iiast have done so much injury. White powdered hellebore sprinkled upon the under side of the leaves, is an effectual remedy. We have tried this aud find it a perfect protection.— The drug is not in the least injurious to the berries, and by applying it whenever the worms make their appearance, vou may save your fruit and bushes. SWEET POTATOES— If, as is frequently the case, the field culture of sweet potatoes con stitutes one of the minor operations of the farm, there will be no necessity for planting this valuable root in the garden. On tbe other hand, if they are not so grown, no gar den should be without its bed of sweet pota toes. A deep sandy loam is best adapted to their vigorous growth. The exposure of the bed sho'J be well to the south, and the hills or drills should be well manured. POTATO PUDDING. —BoiI six or seren good sized potatoes, and when thoroughly done, peel and mash with milk to a thin batter ; add half a pound of white sugar, four eggs, the graied peel and half the juice of a lemon- Bake three quarters of an hour. JC3£T Surplus honey should be sold off each year, as by long keeping, unless stored in uniform temperature as near the Datural heat of the kite as possible, it it apt to crys* talize, and if separated from the comb is liable to ferment with change of tempera* ture. m LIMA AND CASOI.INA BRANS. — Plant these in hills, well manured, six feet apart and on aoil lighter than is required for the dwarf beans. Get them into the ground as soon as it is warm enough to plant melons. A broody hen may be made to sit in a strange pis'"* by being put on the eggs at Dight, in the dark, and shut down closely. After a day or two she will keep to them. JEST Raneid Oil may be restored to Ha original pnrity and sweetness, by being beat* ed with a cortan quantity of calcined magne sia. NO. 42.
