The Printer's Devil, and His Love.
A printer's dovil was pierced intheheart With tho charms of a little miss ; Quoth he to the lass, '*my dear, ere wc part Let us seal our love with a kiss." The maiden replied, as the imp she eyed: 44 Dost think that I'll let yon revel Where others before have vainly tried ? No, ho I m not kins the devil.1' Years rolled along, and tho sweet little lass Became an old sorrowful maid ; Sh? livod Uko H queen-was rieh, but alas! Her beauty had all decaved.

For several years past the question of fences has been often discussed by the agricultural press, without having resulted in any practical move, one way or the other. The advocates ol a "no fence law" have al ways-met a stumbling block in the inexpediency of making such a law operative throughout the State. Sometime since we had an opportunity to see the " no fence" law in practical operation in several counties of Virginia, and were astonished at the unanimity ol feeling of the'people in hoping that '.ni? law might never be repealed. In other sections it seems that it does not work so well, where numbers ol small land owners depend upon pas turing cows upon the highways and waste lands. We confess that this knotty problem will be difficult to solve in a manner satisfactory to all the farming community ; but for our selves, waiving all the points brought by intelligent farmers of Virginia against establishing such a law, we would merely consider the great in fluence the abolition of fences in cer tain sections of our State would have upon improving our system of agri culture. The most fertile and rich est farming districts of Europe have no fences. Still more cattle is kept there than in the same area of tut best agricultural sections of the Uni ted States. There, necessity never existed to enclose one's land against the depredatio ;s of his neighbor's stock. There, each person is respon sible for damages caused by his cat tle ; and if a law of trespass exisis herc against man, it seems that one against beasts should certainly be in force. With no fences, cattle could receive more attention and become more profitable to our farmers. Ol necessity cattle would have to be fed upon crops grown for that purpose. The soiling system would naturally be the result of this, and we may safely say that where this system is practiced, lands are brought to a state of fertility unknown elsewhere. With soiling cattle vast amounts of stable manure are produced, and as atten tion is paid to this requisite of good farming, so will success and profit be secured. Herewith we give the outlines ol the Virginia fence law, and would ask its careful perusal by our Southei n agriculturists : AN ACT, relating to Fences and for the Protection of Crops. Passed January 26th, 1866. 1. Be it enacted by the General Assembly, That in any county of this Commonwealth, which shall adopt the provisions of this Act, in the manner hereinafter specified, the boundary lines of each lot or tract of land in said county shall be and re hereby constituted a lawful 2. ^It shall not be lawful for the owner or manager of any horse, mule, swine, sheep, goat, or neat cattle ot any description, to permit the said animals to run at large beyond the limits of their own lands. 3. If any of the animals enumera ted in the foregoing section shall hereafter be found going at largs, or upon the lands of any person other than the owner, the owner or manag er of said animals shall be liable for all damages done by the said animals to the ownar of the crops or lands upon which they may trespass, wheth er the said animals wander from the premises of their ownersin the county in which the trespass was committed, or from another county. 4. In case of trespass as aforesaid, the aggrieved party may make com plaint to a Justice of the county in which the trespass was committed, who shall issue his warrt.nt immedi ately, returnable within five days from the date thereof; and at the time and place named in said war rant, the case will be tried ; aud the amount of damage sustained by the Complainant aud judgiucui given for the flume, with legal costs, as in eas? of ut her warrants.

A Brave Man. Marshal McMahon, Duke of Ma genta, has just done what no other officer*in all France cared or dared to do ; he has fully, freely and frankly vindicated the honor of Napoleon III. The world knew before that Marshal McMahon was heroic ; to-day he is regarded as the most chivalrous man in Europe. What Duciot failed jtcfdo ? what the newspapers failed to do ; what all the other marshals and generals failed to do, McMahon has *aone in his blunt soldierly way American readers have not forgotten yet the peculiar features of that un accountable campaign which culmina ted at Sedan, and which cost the Em peror his Empire and his throne. He alone of all men received the blame, and went away, into.t exile preserving a silence, which, while ifcwas sorrow ful and dignified, in no manner seem ed to seek other victims than himself upaX Which -to casji ihe ;*fer?rijb;le,,?jed ponsibi?ities of the overthrow.. jSorne pity rnurt?t have' still remained lin French "heat ts, even then, if- the truth had been known, and if the true re terijns between STspofom ac d ids ar- J ny had been understood by the peo >le. Gen.. Wimpffen, the signer of he terms of capitulation, should cer-~ ainly have known better when he leclared that the Emperor prevented i sortie which might ?h H ve preserved :he bulk of the armv, and com manded an unconditional surrender. McMahon, however, tells the whole truth. In his testimony before the committee on the conduct of the war, he declares on his oath that he alone is responsible to the country for the march from Chalons to Sedan; that by his orders alone the army march ed t that the Emperor in no way whatever interfered with his plans, or those of the other commanders ; that from the first he, McMahon, had been left free to manage the army.:in his own way-the mo3t the Emperor ever attempting to do consisted of suggestions and recommendations ; that he always received the Empe ror's cordial support; and that during his entire connection with the army he was actuated by but one motive that of devotion to France at the sac rifice of everything else-his throne, his family, the hopes of his dynasty, and his own personal safety. The Marshal continues by saying'that his army deceived him. He thought it could make eighteen miles a day, while it only made ten, and that to this cause alone should the disaster be attributed. Had it b- en other wise, and had he succeeded in obtain ing such marching results as he had .i right to expect, a junction would have been made with Bazaine and the issue might have been different, i This statement of McMahon has ; made a profound impression in France. It was at first attempted to suppress its full force by the complete silence of the newspapers ; but the army took it up and cast it forth broadcast, commenting upon it in every garri son, and expressing open and undis guised sympathy for the fallen Em peror. Especially was this the case in the ranks of the Imperial Guard, who toasted McMahon for his gener osity, and declared with rather more emphasis than discretion that one empire was better than forty repub lics. Certainly the Marshal has done the Bonaparte family no harm by this frank avowal of his, and has greatly increased the admiration of all for his own honorable and unsel fish course. Louis NAPOLEON EXPLAINS.-The following letter addressed to Sir John Burgoyne, was published in the English papers of the 11th instant: WILHELMSHOHE, October 29, 1870. My Dear Sir John :-I have re ceived your letter, which has given me great pleasure-first, that it is a touching proof of your sympathy for me, and also because your '".ame re calls the happy and glorious time when our armies fou " t together for the same cause. You, who are the Moltke of England, will have under stood that our disasters arose from the fact that the Prussians were ready sooner than we, and that, sc tospeak, they surprised usina shame ful state of disorganiztion. The offensive having become impos sible, I resolved to put myself on the defensive ; but, hindered by political considerations, a retreat was retarded and soon became impossible. Return ing to Chalons, I had wished to lead the last army that remained to us tc Paris ; but again political considera tions forced us to make that most imprudent and little strategical march which ended by the disaster of Se dan. See in a few words the unhap py campaign of 1870. I think it right to offer you these explanations, because I wish to retain your esteem. In thanking you for your kind re membrance, I renew to you the as surance of my warmest regards. NAPOLEON. Remnants by Josh Billings.

Appeal, of May 21, is "re sponsible for the following : "Can I get my dinner here, ?ir?" said along, lean, hungry-lookingnpec imen of humanity, stepping uo to thc bar of the Merchante Hotel, yes terday. "Yes, I reckon," responded "the General," who happened to be be hind the counter. We looked at the applicant. He had broad hips. He had hollow, long jaws. He wore a hollow stomach. In fact, he was not full-chested. He looked like a dangerous cu-tomer, where unprotected food was left ly ing around loose. He entered the dining room and called for a porter house steak. He got it ; also, pota toes, bread, soup, vegetables, pie, cof fee, andr sundry other things. By and by the table was cleared, and he then ordered a mutton- chop. . This, with the trimmings, vani'Iied also. Then he called for a pork chop. He got it, and into.the cavernous recenses of that India rubber stomach it dis appeared also. The waiter sat down, completely exhausted. The cook wept. After eating a cold lunch, the stran ger arose, his stomach foreboding im mediate dissolution, for,. ?'S coming' ^vsjaisi/sast their shadows before, xnd walking.jap to the .bar asked,- in ? sof?rarfd'y.'he?zipg voice : \ .." itow much do Lowie yton, ?ir ?V .'.'-Not a eent,-8ir.' replied the Gen ial.: , " I ain. your Je^tor.

You who havo never tried this kind >f floriculture should by all means invest a small sum in some of our moat beautiful varieties of flowers. Florists ?ire now offering these bulbs 30 cheaply that any one who can af ford to spend anything for flowers can certainly well afford these. A dollar's worth of tulip bulbs will do for a start; once planted according to directions they will increase rapidly, nit only hy bulb, but with little care the seeds may also be propa gated. Lilies in endless varieties can also be well afforded ; these as well as tu lips require little care and will so richly repay the cultivator that I consider them indispensable o a flower yard; garden or bed. They raise their stalks of bloom with a majesty and glory no other flower can assume, at the same time hoi'J us spell bound by their perfume. The white lily is emblematic of all that is pure and lovely. Hyacinths too are valu ble; grown carefully in pots they will afford beau tiful flowers for the sitting room du ring winter's coldest months, and in beds or borders are very fine. All the common varieties of bulbous plants can be easily grown by the inexperienced. I always like to watch the success of others before investing in new and highly priced varieties. C>r. Iowa Homestead. We have a strange story of a miracle in St. Louis, which we are rather anxious about. Three physi cians, over their own names, aver that they had given up the case of a young German girl suffering from a liver disease as hopeless, and had left her to die. She was a Catholic, and the priest was called in and ad ministered the last rites of the church. Her death was momentarily expected, when she fell into a gentle slumber. She awoke from it in the morning perfectly well, and walked forth as strong as she had ever been before. The physicians who had been attending were sent for, and after an examination pronounced her to be in the enjoyment of full health. Her story is, that on the night in question, after she had been given up and received the last sacrament, the Virgin Mary appeared to her in a vision and asked her if she desired to live, assuring her that if she would devote her life to the service of the church she " should be made whole." She made a solemn promise that she would do so after the death of her mother. The Virgin then disappear ed, and when she awoke she was strong and well. Ingratitude to Pareuts. There is a proverb that " a father can more easily maintain six chil . dren, than six children one father." Luther relates this story : There was once n father who gave . up everything to his children-his : house, his fielas and goods-and ex 1 pected that for this his children . would support him. But after he had been some time with his son, the latter grew tired of him, " Father, I 1 have had a son born to me this night, and here, where your arm . chair stands, the cradle must come ; ? will you not, perhaps, go to my broth 1 er, who has a larger room ?" 1 After he had been sometime with . the second son, he also grew tired ol ; him, and said, " Father, you like a warm room, and that hurts my head Won't you go to my brother the ba ker?" The father went and after he - h id been some time with the third i son, he also found him troublesome . .md said to him, " Father, the people ' run in and out here all day, as if it ' were a pigeon-house, and you cannot have your noonday sleep; would you not be better off at my sislei Kate's, near the town wall?" The old man remarked how thc ; wind blew, and said to himself " Yes, I will do so ; I will go and try it with my daughter. Women have softer hearts." But after ht had spent some time with his daugh ter, she grew weary of him, and said she was always sn fearful when lu i father went to ciiurch or anywhere else, and was obliged to descend thc steep stairs, and at her sister Eliza beth's there were no stairs to descend, as she lived on the ground floor. For the sake of peace the old man assented, and went to his other daughter. But after some time she too was tired .of him. and Lol.I him by a third person that her house near the water was too damp for a man who suffered with gout, and her sis ter, the gruve-digge 'a wife, at St. John's, had much drier lodgings. The old man himself thought ?he was right, and went outside the gate tn his youngest daughter, Helen. But after he had been three days with her, her little son said to his grand-father, "Mother said yester day to cousin Elizabeth that there was no better chamber for you than such a one as father digs." These words broke tho old mn n's heart, s-n that; he sank back it) his chair and died. A TROUBLED AMENDMENT.-A la dy was leading to her servants an account of the Chicago fire. The in cident of the burning of the eman cipation proclamation* which cost the city $25,000 for its Historical Society, arrested the attention of one old colored woman, a slave all lid life, who viewed the proclamation much as the Israelites did the ark ol the con vean t. "What dat," she said, "burnt up ?" " Yes, aunty, burned up." " Den what gwine to come of os again ?" " I don't know ; may be you'll be slaves as before." " Den dis chile gwine to die right now." And throwing up her hands in dis may, she left the presence of her mis tress, visiting dire imprecations on the head of the man " what sol out that fire."-N. 0. Picayune. ALIVE IN HIS COFFIN AT HIS GEA VE.-James Hickey, of Birming ham, Pa., very narrowly escaped be ing buried alive the other day.

The remains were not kept long, the friends being afraid of the disea- A<-n-^ i ment8 were made for the fungal; and the coffin was placed in the hearse. On reaching the cemetery the atten tion of the driver of the-hearse was attracted-by a noise in the coffin, and he made it -known, to the-pall-be;?rers. The coffin was .taken out, and the lid was taken off, and Hickey' immedi ately raised up terrilied. as were all those around. ' He was taken home, and at last accounts was recovering.

This Company Offers (he Following Important Advantages io those About Effecting laurance ou their Lives: 1st. Insurance at Stock Rates, being from 20 to 30 Per Cent, less than the Hates charged by Mutual Companies. 2d. Each Policy-holder is regarded as a Stockholder to the extent of one Annual Premium on his Policy, and will share in the Profits of the Company to the same extent as a Stock holder owning an equal amoui.t of the Capital Stock. 3d. Every Policy issued by the Company is non-forfeitable, and contains a Clause stating its exact Surrender Value. BEFORE INSURING YOUR LIFE OR ACCEPTING THE AGENCY OF ANY COMPANY READ THE FOLLOWING : A lengthened experience has d< inonstrated that the rates of Premium ordinarily char^edl})' Life Insurance Companies are Irom twenty-five to thirty per cent, in excess of what are necessary for a safe and legitimate conduct of the business. In other words, carefully and prud?ntiy-managcd Companies charging "Mutual" rates have been able to return to their policyholders from 25 to 30 per cent, of the amount charged for premiums. When Life Insurance Companies were first organized, thc reliability of the data upon which the premiums were constructed had not undergone the test of experience. It was thought, therefore, no more than common prudence to adopt a scale of premiums which woulS, in any event, meet all the presumed and unforeseen contingencies of the business. As long as the matter was involved in some doubt, it was better to fix the rate too hi"h than to incur the risk of making it too low ; because, in the former case, the error could be easily remedied, at least in part, by returning !o the policyholders, at certain intervals, such portion of the premium charged as was found unnecessary for the purposes of the business and the complote security of.the Company. Experience, however, having satisfactorily demonstrated that these rates are exces sive, what possible excuse can there be for maintaining them ? Availing themselves of this experience, the Directors and Managers of thc Universal Life Insurance Company, at i?? organization, adopted a scale of premiums in accor dance therewith, and which has proved to be fair and adequate, and all that was necessary ,o meet '.he requirements <.f the business. These premiums are about twenty five per "cent, lower than those charged by Mutual Companies. It also appeared, inasmuch as the rates so established were as near as could possibly be determined fair rates, and noi in excess of what Insurance has previously cost the Policyholders m Mutual Companies, that auy profits arising from prudent manage ment' jusllv and properly belonged to the stockholders of the Company, for thc risk incurred by them in undertaking the business. Experience has shown that there are sources of profit in the practice of the business which theory will not admit of being considered as elements in the calculation of the premiums. These results from a saving in thc mortality of the members of a Com pany owing to the medical selection ol* good lives, a gain in interest on thc investments f the Company over .hat assumed in the calculation of its premiums, the profits derivable from the lapsing and surrender of Policies by the members, and from other minor sources. Profits from these sources, in a Company possessed of a capital of 8200,000, and do in" a fair amount of business, would give to the stockholders dividends largely in ex cess of what were counted on by the Directors of the Universal at the tune of its organization. They have, therefore, determined to divide among the policyholders ol the Company a large part of the profits accruing from the sources named, all of which have heretofore been divided among thc stockholders. The plan adopted for such division is as follows : Every person who may hereafter insure with the Universal will, for the purposes of division, bc treated as a stockhol der to the extent of one Annual Premium upon his Policy ; and zu ill share in thc profits of the Company lo precisely the same extent as a Stockholder owing an equal amount of the capital stock. Bv this system of Insurance, original with thc Universal, the policyholder secures the following important advantages : FlKST. Insurance at the reg ular "Stock'' rates, requiring a primary outlay oj about twenty lo thirty per cent, less (han thal charged by Mutual Companies, and which is equivalent to a yearly " dividend" paid in advance ol' that amounkon mutual rates. This low cost of insurance is worthy of attention. Since its organization this Company has received in premiums from its policyholders the sum of ?1,517,000. Tc effect the same amount of insurance in a Mutual Company would have cost them an initial outlay of $2,000.000. Ly allowing it;- policyholders to retain in their own pos Mtssion ?hw ?XOMH ot' $183,000, tho Universal has virtually paid them a " dividend ol $483,000, and paid it, too, in advance, instead of at the end of one or more years, lt is impossible to find any,example of a Mutual Company furnishing insurance at so low a cost by returning to its policyholders ?rn equal amount upon similar receipts. SECOND. Participation in thc legitimate profils of thc Company, upon, apian which secures to the policyholders thc same treatment which Directors and Stock nolders award to themselves. Tins system of participation,in connection with the lov "stock" rates of premium, must necessarily secure lo the policyholders every possible advantage t< be derived from prudenfcund careful management. Thc low rates of premium compel economy, and, independent of participation guarantee to the policylu Idcr his insurance at a rate which is not in excess of the cost in well managed mutual companies ; while, l>y the proposed plan of participation ii what may lie considered th.- legitimate f/rofits of the business, the cost will be sti! further diminished. Thus bv thc combined advautagi ? arising (rom low slock rate and participation i? the profits it is confidently believed that the UNIVERSAL LIFE IKS?KANCI COMPANY offers insurance at i; ? lowest practicable cost. Those of the existing-Policyholders who desire to participate in the Profil; under the new Plan can do ?o by making application to the Head Office, or to any o thc Agents of the Company. Thc Company is in a sound financial condition.
