No Use Praying.?Two raftsmen were

and bo many steamboats lost their sky

instant it was pitching and writhing as
if suddenly dropped into Charybdis,
while the waves broke over it with tre?
mendous uproar. Expecting instant de?
struction^ the raftsman dropped on his
knees and commenced praying with a
vim equal to the emergency. Happening
to open his eyes, he observed his compan?
ion, not engaged in prayer, but pushing
a pole m the water at the side of the raft.

Agricultural Societies.
Tho following article from the Lynch
burg ("Va.) flews, on the subject of Agri?
cultural Societies, is quite as apppropri
ate to this State as to Virginia; and we
commend it to the attentive considera?
tion of our readers:
While everybody is so deeply concern?
ed for the reconstruction of tho Union, it
is somewhat remarkable that so little at?
tention is given to a subject of equal, if
not of paramount, importance?the recon?
struction of the State in her social and
industrial interests. The impression
seems to prevail to a great extent that
everything depends upon tho admission
of our Senators and Representatives to
the Federal Congress, and national poli?
tics, consequently, absorbs the popular at?
tention to tho exclusion of domestic and
local affairs. Now, while it is conceded
that representation in the National Gov?
ernment is a very sacred and valuable
light, yet there are interests nearer home
of even greater practical importance to
every citizen of the State?interests bo
intimately connected with our prosperity
as individuals and as a pooplo, that they
are really indispensable to it. Tho suc?
cess of the President's policy, the admis?
sion of our Congressmen, and the restora?
tion of our State to a position of perfect
equality in the Union with all tho other
States?desirable as these things are, they
will not cure our worst ills, they will not
restore our lost fortunes, nor put into our
pockots the money necessary to meet our
wants. It is not a doctrine of sordid ma?
terialism that the dearest interests of a
people depend upon the development of
their natural resources and the increase
of thoir wealth. Money or wealth, as a
means is a sine qua non: food and raiment
for the body, education for tho mind, can?
not be procured without it. It is roquired
for building and keoping up railroads and
canals, for erecting churches, and for the
support of ministers and teachers.
A sago has said, "Tho greatest public
benefactor is he that causes two blades of
' grass to grow where only one grow be?
fore." It cannot be disputed that agri
! culture is our chief resource as a people ;
and to this fact are we mainly indebted
for the nobility of character for which the
South is distinguished. Whatever, then,
I may tend to the improvement of agricul
! ture has a just claim upon the attention
and active support of every one among
us. He cannot be wise or innocent who
, looks with careless indifforenco upon any
measure of enterprise tending to the pro?
motion of general prosperity. It is in
this view we urgo the propriety of resus?
citating the Stato Agricultural Society,
and the revival, under its auspiccB, of the
annual Fairs, which created such a whole?
some interest in the popular mind before
the war. The industrial pursuits and in?
terests of our impoverished section need
every stimulus that can be applied to
them. Nor let it bo supposed that the
necessities of the people aro sufficient for
this purpose; avarice is blind, and cannot
see boyond a present temporary advan?
tage, often obtained at the price of future
permanent injury. Especially in agricul?
ture, will it not do to labor with reference
merely to immediate gains, without re?
gard to the future. Tho worn-out old
fields all around us attest tho folly of such
a policy. What wo want is, that gener?
ous rivalry among the tillers of the soil
which tho comparison of results at tho
fairs naturally inspires, that intelligent
electism in farming which overcomes the
obstinacy of ancient prejudice, and com?
bines the elements of success drawn from
various and numerous experiments. The
system of annual Fairs is the most effi?
cient agency for producing these results
that has yet been employed, and deserves
to be perpetuated.
But there aro many more benefits re?
sulting from Fairs. It gives to the far?
mer and his family an opportunity for
pleasant and profitable recreation, once a
year, in a visit to them, where they meet
with a vast concourse of colaborers and
kindred spirits, have an opportunity of
inspecting and procuring the latest im?
provements in agricultural machinery,
and buying and selling superior stock and
seed ; and they learn, by the most infali
ble tests, tho extent of the State's resour?
ces, and the relative value of lands in the
different sections. The advantages of
those Fairs to mechanics are too obvious
to be repeated, and to all classes, indeed,
the benefits to accrue from them seem to
us perfectly apparent. We call upon our
brethren of the Press, then, in all por?
tions of the State, to raise their potent
voice in advocacy of the early resuscita?
tion of these powerful engines of material
prosperity and enlightened advancement.
? Tho Richmond correspondent of the
Danville Register tells the following anec?
dote about Gen. "Alleghany" Johnston,
on the march to Bristoe Station in the
fall of 1863. The General was riding
along the road, and perceiving one of his
men up a persimmon tree, hallooed out to
"I say thorc, what are you doing up
there ? Why ain't you with your regi?
"I'm gettin' simmons, I am," replied
the soldier.
"Persimmons, thunder! They are not
ripe yet. They are not fit to eat."
"Yes, but General," persisted the Con
fed, "I'm trying to draw my stomach up
to suit the size of my rations. If it stays
like it is now I shall starve."
The General had nothing further to
say, but rode on.
? There seems to be no doubt but that
Stanton will soon retire from the War
Department, and that Lieut. Gen. Sher?
man will succeed him, for a term, at least,
as Acting Secretary of War.

an extreme radical, will be elected to Con?

the 10th ult. The night before a woman

The Winter of the Heart.
Let it never come upon you. Live so
that good angels may protect you from
this terrible evil?the winter of the heart.
Let no chilling influence freeze up the
foundations of sympathy and happiness
from its depths; no cold burthen settle
over its withered hopes like snow on the
faded flowers; no rude blasts of discon?
tent moan and shriek through the deso?
late chambers.
Your life path may lead you amid trials
which for a time seem utterly to impede
your progress, and shut out the very light
of heaven from your anxious gaze.
Penury may take the place of ease and
plonty; your luxurious home may be ex?
changed for a singlo low room, the soft
couch for a straw pallet?the rich viands
for tho coarse food of the poor. Summer
friends may forsake you, and the unpity
ing world pass you with scarcely a word
of compassion.
You may be forced to toil wearily,
steadily on, to earn a livelihood; you may
encounter fraud and base avarice which
would extort the last farthing, till you
well nigh turn in disgust from your fel?
low beings.
j Death may sovor the dear ties that bind
you to the earth, and leave you in fearful
darkness. The noblo, manly boy, the
sole hope of your declining years, may be
taken from you, whilst your spirit clings
to him with a wild tenacity which even
the shadow of the tomb cannot wholly
But amid all sorrows, do not come to
the conclusion that nobody was ever so
deeply afflicted as you are, and abandon
every sweet anticipation of "better days"
in the unknown future.
Do not lose your faith in human ex?
cellence because your confidence has been
betrayed, nor believe that friendship is
only a delusion, and love a bright phan?
tom which glides away from your grasp.
Do not think you are fated to be mis?
erable because you are disappointed in
your expectations and baffled in your pur- |
suits. Do not declare that God has for?
saken you, when your way is hedged with
thorns, or repine sinfully when he calls
your dear ones to the land beyond the
Keep a whole trust in heaven through
every trial; bearadversity with fortitude,
and look forward in hours of temptation
and suffering. When your locks are
whito, your steps falter on the verge of
Death's gloomy vale, still strive to retain
the freshness and buoyancy of spirits
which would shield you from the winter
of the heart.
Home Virtues.
In the secluded scones of home life, by
influences direct and indirect, are many
of those traits of character formed and
tested which most ennoble our nature, and
which are more serviceable to the world.
In tho outward intercourse of life, the
thronging mart of worldly interest, tho
character assumes forms and expressions
which do not belong to it. Blinded by
self-love, or soothed by the flattery of the
world, tho heart is hidden from itself, and
we appear, are for the moment, bettor
than we are! But in the privacy of home
the heart wears no holiday dress. It is
thero just what it is; and the thought
speaks out its native language. To its
virtues come thronging no public honors
and praises. Home with its wide field of
unob-Btrusive duties is spread alone before
tho eye of divine approval, and its labors
are illuminated with the light of holy
Youth nevor wears a brighter beauty
than when, leaving the gilded pleasures
of the world, it seeks in seclusion to min?
ister to tho comfort of an aged or infirm
parent. Nor does intellect over beam
with greater lustre than when the pride
of reason bends to listen to the counsels
of a mother.
Tho continual recurrence of petty cares,
little labors of love, and constant oppor?
tunities for trifling acts of kindness, like
the chisel of tho sculptor, mould and pol?
ish tho heart in perfect symmetry. And
doubtless a wise hand hath so mingled
the cup of daily life that, by its calls upon
our charity, pationco, and self-control,
we may be fitted for our nobler, higher
homo. Not a day comes without its pe?
culiar trials; its duties which cali for ful?
filment glide away forever. The infant
brother prattles, disturbs us, and passes
on to manhood, but the patience his child?
ish caprices fostered is our enduring pos?
session. Tho infirm sister or parent calls
now for ceaseless activity, self-denying
effort; a few days, and the wild flowers
tremble above her, and we rejoice in the
privilege of having ministered. And thus
with all the duties which flow from that
sweet word?Home. They are the school
for the highest talents, the opportunities
for the noblest efforts, finally to be crown?
ed with tho "Well done" of heavenly ap?
Little Things.?The prcciousness of
little things was never more beautifully
oxpressod than in the following morceau
by B. F. Taylor:
Little marten-boxes of homes are gen?
erally the roost happy and cozy; little
villages are nearor to being atoms of a
shattered paradise than anything we
know of, and little fortunes bring the
most content; and little hopes the least
Little words are tho 'sweetest to hear;
little charities fly furtherost and stay
longost on the wing; little lakes are the
stillest, and little farms the best tilled.?
Little books are the most read, and little
songs the most loved. And, when nature
would make anything especially rare
and beautiful, she makes it little?little
pearls, little diamonds, little dews.
