THE EDITOR'S SONG.
The editor sits at his table.
Writing ae well as he's able,
Paragraphs, leader and puff ;
IHs scissors beside him are lying,
While he is in agony trying
Of copy to furnish enough.
Toil, toil, toil Î
Wliat a weary life is mine !
Wasting the precious midnight oil
Un leader and column and line.
Working from morn till night,
Working from night till morn.
Oh, why was that power-press ever made,
Oh, why was the editor born ?
Toit, toil, toil !
And whose is the gain when done?
Whose arc the trophies we achieve?
And for whom arc the laurels
To stand in the foremost rank
Of each hard-fought party fray—
To toil and toil and only get
Abuse and neglect for pay.
Toil, toil, toil l
What a thankless task is ours,
To bake the bread and press the cheese,
That Senat, r Jones devours !
To sit on ft three-legged stool,
While others have hair-stuffed seats,
To prepare the hash and cook the stew,
But never to taste the meats !

Toil, toil, toil !
As the constant drop on the stone,
So the ceaseless, endless w ork,
W ears away body and soul !
Though the poet splutter and write,
Though the orator bully and brawl,
If it were not for the editor's pen,
What were the use of it all?
Toil, toil, toil !
Christians, Mormons and Jews,
Is there a man on this weary earth,
But grows richer by reading the
Richer, richer, richer,
As they read it by sunlight nnd. taper
And yet how many of them all
Begrudges to pay for his paper.

CS)ur (Dlio.
Proflt of Fish-Farming.
That the «ulturo of fresh-water fish as a
branch of farming will pay where the nat
ural advantages exist, cannot be any lon
ger considered an open question. It has
been too ofetn and too clearly demonstra
ted to admit longer of a doubt. Seth
Green bought his now famous fish farm
near Mumford N. Y. fur $2000. He fit
ted it up with hatching apparatus, and a
year afterwards sold a half interest in it
for $0000. In 1800, his profits
$1000 : the next year they amounted to
$0000. n During 1808, his sale of eggs
and young fry alone amounted to $10,
000, leaving out of consideration the prin
cipal income from the sale of the fish. Mr.
Green, speaking from his experience, once
said, that "an aero of good water can be
made to produce twice as much as an acre
of land." It was Francis Francis, the first
fish farmer of England, who said that
sowing of fish was twice as valuable as a
sowing of corn. Dr. Thaddeus Norris es
timates the annual cost of breeding ten
thousand yearlings, eight thousand two
years old, and seven thousand 8 years old
trout at $706.60; the receipt from the
sale of their product, without decreasing
the stock on hand, at $6100—a net profit
of over $5000. Mr. Ainsworth of West
Bloomfield, N. Y. found on his farm when
he purchased it, thirteen or fourteeu small
springs, not one of them of sufficient vol
ume to fill a good sized quill. But by col
lecting their several streams into one he
secured a volume of one inch of rather va
riable water—variable not only in temper
ature, but ingredients ; yet ho makes tbiu
supply of water sufficient for a pond of
fourteen feet deep, and covering sixty rods
of ground—formerly a useless marsh ; and
in this pond and accessory popls he keeps
from fifteen hundred to two thousand trout,
which he feeds to his family, and about
dozen farm laborers, and yet manages to
sell eggs to the amount of at least $500
y_e»r. In England and Scotland, entire
rivers are farmed this way. The Galway,
Scotland, was rented in 1852 to a fish far
mer named Ainsworth, who began to stock
it with salmon. In 1858 he took
thousand six hundred and throe fish; 1854,
three thousand one hundred and fifty-eight;
1861, eleven thousand and fifty-one, and
in 1864, twenty thousand five hundred and
twelve—all this without decreasing the
original stack. At the same time the
same gentleman rented the river Tay for
$40,000 per year ; in 1854 he had to pay
$45,000, and in 1864 the rent had ad
vanced to $75,000. The profits of the
fishery were so great that not only
tho lessee justified in paying this rent, but
he was enabled to build a breeding estab
lishment superior to any outbuilding in
France.
Every farmer in the United States who
has the uecessary^upply of water can in
like manner become a breeder of fish, with
liko profit to himself, and aid also in stock
ing public wnters with his surplus eggs.—

They are both equally good, and contain the
same medicinal virtues, the choice between the
two being a mere matter of taste, the Tonic being
the most palatable.
The stomach, from a variety of causes such
Indigestion, Dyspepsia, Nervous Debility, etc. is
very apt to have its functions deranged. The
Liver, sympathizing as closely ns it does with the
Stomach, then becomes affected, the result of
which is the patient suffers from several or more
of the following diseases :
Constipation, Flatulence, Inward Piles, Fulness
of Blood to the Head, Acidity of the Stom

There is no medicine extant equal to these rem
in such cases. A time and vigor is impart

eradicated from the eyes, a bloom is given to the
cheeks, and the weak and nerv

Persons advanced in life and feeling the hand of

especially for Liver Complaint, it ie a en/e and
