Juvenile Vagabondism.
Jf we arc Jo recuperate our^fortunes,
improve our morals, amend our lives, nud
me.ko ourselves worthy of God's favor and
man's respect, (lien must our reforms com?
mence witli every head of a firmly and in
cverv household. It is a terrible thing to
behold the children of a family going to
the dogs, or lo the devil, through the self
complacent disregard or indifference of
the parents. Vet, that 6uch is the fact, j
nobody who beholds the large amount of
iuvenile vagabonds in our streets, at all |
hours, can doubt or deny. The father is.
?doulitless^-loitcring himself; -ind what the j
mother is doing, we leave to her mirror to
report! It is clear that neither of them is j
doing the duty of a parent, while children, j
from right to sixteen years of nge; arc
Buffered to grow up in utter idleness.
Lither they should be at their books, in the !
school or in the house, or they shoufd be
put to trades, where they may learn an
honest end useful business, to be forth?
coming at their finger?' ends, when the
home is in liiins 'and famine piteoiisly
etnlks the rounds, crying for bread.
"Where parents cannot afford to pay a
teacher, they can still less afford to peram?
bulate the streets. They had better keep
their boys at books at home, teaching ali
that they k themselves know. A hov at
fourteen, not designed for a profession)
?aid having neither the talents nor thc
pecuniary means to acquire it, may ac
quire those means in time, if articled to
a good mechanic, machinist or tradesman
;'or live or seven years. Let him do his
duty faithfully, and he can support, feed
and clothe himself, assist his parents, and,
if lie have the proper gifts for a profes?
sional mutt, he must acquire thc elements
of his profefision besides. Let the parents
look to lifts matter, for they may he sure
that every boy brought up in idleness is a
mere and willing tool in the hands of j
some airead}- graduated and distinguished
agent in the bauds of the devil. There are
throe gifts which a parent, in order to save
the boy, must "be careful to seek and
choose for him-an occupation which
shall give him honest employment; asso
ciatos who will give bim honest compa?
nions; and such sports and plays as, for?
bearing to stimulate*cupidity, will yield
him innocent and healthy recreations.
Briefly, the gifts wh?eh are of most im?
portance to the morals of the voting, are
employment, society and amusements. The
amusements, Hie plays of children are
quite as essential to their morals as either
of the other-since the character of the
child is more likely to be developed and
shaped by his associates in [day than by
any other influence. Yet these three
things are the very last subjects of con
saltation usually with the parent. All
children should, at the earliest possible
period, be put to use. To be useful is one
of the greatest of human virtues. With
the development of the uses of the .hov, '
you exercise and develop bis intellect, and
muscle-mind and body being equally
considered in the employments chosen for
bim. These are to be chosen with refer?
ence to w%bat of endowment he show's,
especially if there be anything peculiar in
his gift. And the work should always be
within the capacity of mind and body.
Neither is to be put to strain or tension.
TVi'.h the degree of responsibility thrown
upon him will he develop his characteris?
tics and arrive at usefulness; and to be
useful, rather than to be happy, is the
great end of life.
On "Wednesday last, in pursuance of an
invitation from Gen. Hatch, r.f the United
Slates Army, commanding at Charleston,
(jens. Lovell and Preston, accompanied by
Cap ts. Manigauit, Illicit, Corbett and Gue
rard, of their staff, repaired to Orange
burg, to consult with the above named
officer and Gen. Hartwell, in relation to
certain mattera in connection with the
system of paroles now issued. Wennder
H'muJ that the object of the conference
temporarily failed, (ion. Hartwell prefer?
ring to refer the matter, to Gen. Gillmor.-;
but il is thc impression that the United
Hiatos authorities are disposed tousecvery
possible conciliatory measure. - The officers
assert that they were received an.N treated
i'n the most courteous and hospitable style,
the utmos' kindness, respect and even de?
licacy being exhibited.

Tile trial of the persons charged with ]

begun in Washington before a military |

Mn. LINCOLN'S TOMB-The public has ;
confused understanding of the fact tba
there was an earnest struggle over th
final resting place of the ?ortal remain
of Abraham Lincoln, which was not ter
minated till the day of their interment
I hut it is not so well known as it should b
i that there was never #ny division or hes
I talion on thc part of his family, who wer
! uniformly averse to his burial alone in a
eight-acre square in the centre of Spring
I field, but insisted that his dust spool
j mingle with its kindred olav in thc publi
cemetery two mil^s from "the whirl an
roar of traffic, and not be made the chi?
advertisement of a smart and growin
?city. Robert Line?la did not decide th
i point, ns some of the reports have indien
ed; he simply Announced the unaninroi
and unchangeable resolve of the fatnil
that the a-hes of bim they loved shoul
repose in a cemetery-that ofSpringfiel
if that were allowed; if not that, in son
other. While doing justice to the lib
rality and public spirit which dictated tl
purchase ol' an eight acre lot for the tom1
at a cost of $55,000, we must say that tl
decision of the family seems to us th
which good taste and right feeling won
naturally prompt. And thc monument
