The farmer all make good wives and render home a paradise the latter is a useless piece of furniture, and will, to the annoyance of the household, go whining to the grave. Let her go 1 The above we clip from an exchange.— We think as the paragraphia does, bul where in tho name of sense will you find this article in market? We occasionally hear of developments of this character, but a report of such iudustry and excel lence invites young men of thought so readily that the sample is applied for as soon as the story of her value obtains currency. This is a delicate subject, we arc aware, but wo take the responsibility of saying a word or two about it anyway. The approved style of young lady train ing at present—at least if if not ap proved it is the fashion and that is all the same—is to teach her lo lie abed till moth er and the servant girl prepare breakfast. She is roused by MA from morning repose and she comes to the meal, pale, weak and interestingly delicate. Her paleness ceases after a hearty breakfast, and an hour or two spent at her toilet. She cannot knit mittens for her little brother who carries wood to her room and water to her bath, nor can she knit stockings for herself.— MA, kind soul relieves her painted darling of this onerous duty 1 She drums a Pi ano "splendid,"' and probably sings "like an ailgel." Company must not call till she is in full dress jpreparation. If a ride is proposed, she requires an hour to get ready. When the sleigh or carriage calls for her, she springs into either with a vig or that implies ability to sweep the house, make her own bed, wash her own clothes, churn and get breakfast. All a mistake in the iinplyer! She absolutely cannot do such things. Let exercise take any shape but woefc and the delicate little sylph *'is in." She is home'' in Vesuviana, the Lancers or tho Galiopade. She reads highly sensational works to improve her mind, and falls in love with a novel hero even though he be a brigand, the author paints her favorite as to "delightfully handsome." Years pass and she is yet single. She continues to fish in the pool of great ex pectations, but though she gets many nil)— hies, she receives no[gennine, earnest bites, Hnd, hence she does nt hook a huband.— I11 time she half despairs of reaching that goal which women, with rare exceptions, think about—Matrimony. Then she grows petulant even to sourness and surrenders her position as a first class velvet-cheeked young belle to others who are bein^ train ed as was herself. Having no knowledge ot the duties of a house-keeper, she can have uo employment that will drive ennui away. Her piano becomes an eye-sore to her the latest sensation work of modern patent book manufacturers has no charms for one who is indulging in that all-ab sorbing thought of "Who will be my life protector when and MA are taken away Roused by Despair from the bed of Hopelessness, she brushes up her ar mor, makes a mighty effort to hide the wrinkles which Care has furrowed on her cheeks, and, possibly, she succeeds in cap turing a husband some quiet old widower, or, perchance, a bachelor who has sinned away his day of grace, and who has no right to a choice in tho Matrimonial stock pnarket. The husband has a nicely furn ished house and plenty of money. The courtship is usually short and extremely tender. They are married. He supposes be is getting an angel to look at, and one, too, who is house-keeper enough to direct, and to somewhat as sist the servants and to keep his shirt but tons last to that important garment, but he soon awakens from that dream. She was polished at Saratoga or at Longbranch, and she cannot descend to any employ ment that has work about it. The truth is the woman don't know how, and she is too proud and too'indolent to learn. Time passes. The idleness, ennui and conscious incompetency to play the role of wife, brings on fretting till it becomes chronic. Finding fault with herself till that plan of relief plays out, she soon be gins to find fault with him whom she once called by the endearing title of "Hubby." lie responds at first aud then absents him self from the house as much as possible: here he has the advantage. He is now seldom at home except for meals and to sleep both of these are frequently taken "solitary and alone." JShe scolds he re plies in reproaches and leaves the ranche. Time passes. As 6tyle is kept up in tho parlor, the lady of the rich husband has many callers. Young men are wel comed with roniles ineffable. They are so polite, so well got up in dress aud so flat teringly smooth in at/ dress. They are pleased with Madame** vivacity, her music, I York, kcr conversational powers, and above all, the elegance of her (painted) face and (padded) figure. Her husband pursues his business avocations, glad to have little or no part in her frippery levees of fash ion and hypocrisy. On "a beautiful star light evening" when the lady is "intoxi cated with love," or wine, she scarcely knows which, Charles Augustus, a once young gallant of hers who has been jilted a dozen times for want of common sense, falls at her feet and declares imploringly, impetuously, that|his brain, henrt, stomach and all things elso in nature are on fire and slio must "fly" with him. She was thinly at any time on application After few days fixing up her wardrobe and abstracting what carry-able values she can find in husband's bureau or secretary, »ioney included, sho pens a note of sub lime condolence to "my'poor, dear, discon solate, heart-broken husband," and the iufatuates take wing for that isle of Love which Tom Moore so fascinatingly de scriljcs. For n tiiue, tlic people read with avidity of the elopement, in the journals the and decule own nccordinp to their prejudices, or, perhaps their weaV.- note, which of the unfortunates is most to blame but in a few days a similar case comes to the surface and the past sensa tion loses interest. The husband, with, perhaps, a child or two, now deserted by their badly-educated and unnatural, mother is not sorry to lose the company of one whose voice had be come a torture, and whose conduct had been so trifling but his pride is wounded when he reflects that his troubles are overhauled in ribald jests on the streets, in saloon and in fashionable parlors This it is that speds tho arrow to the heart. He sues for a divorce. In the meantime the "flyers" Sad no bread, no meat, no butter or potatoes on Moore's pretty Isle, and Love herself will lose its ruddy hue if not supplied with physical aliment. Both are hungry for the reputations they have forfeited both would take their late places if it were possible. Each blames the other. The vinegar of Reproach succeeds the sugar of Passion. Charles has seen a prettier, younger, better-tempered "Lady" and— the elopers separate. He "flies" with the new flame and the poor woman is left a victim to REMORSE The past comes up befoie her as did Richard's ghosts on Bosworth Field. She sees a pleasant house, her (at first) confiding and unsus picious husband, the prattling little chil dren enquiring, "Why don't MA HOLE-IX—THE—DAY.—This I10 come home?" and while she reflects that all these precious treasures were once hers, the brain dizzies and unconsciousness comes to her relief. Her means were ex hausted by the villain who nursed her weakness only to betray and now she is a wreck on the Sea of Life. COD, pity her The Divorce suits progresses. The "Lady" is discovered by friends who per suade that she can secure moral palliation md alimony, if the husband is proved to have been first in the net of crime charged against herself In dispair, she accepts any advice. Eloquent lawyers, knowing he is rich, and warm friends(?) are ready to defend and to "back he?," so long as they see a prospect of forcing funds from the husband. He may prefer "to give" to the horse leach Lawyers around sum rath er than stand in court and submit to the coarseness which such suits inevitably carry with them. If he "bleeds" freely the matter ends legally. If not, the city is ransacked for testimony relative to the criminal connections of each party and their visiting friends. (See report of a late trial in Chicago where all were proved to be criminals in the sense in which we are writing.). All the filthy Avit nctscs to be found are suborned ar.d the report of the trial is well aired in disgust, ing detail to the readers of newspape.— However the case may be settled, both parties are irretrievably disgraced subjects for the tears of Pity, or marks for "the slow, umnoving finger of Scorn." Sorrow is the companionship of both till Death kindly bids them pass away. More is un necessary. Readers can supply the bal ance if they have Thought if they have no such article, this hurriedly written matter will not affect them either way.— Cases such as this load our city dailies.— WHO is to blamj for the fate of the wrctchcd, ill-trained, vanity-inspired, too highly-educated "young lady?" Wuo? Those only who were the natural guar dians of infancy who should have been the advisers of youth, must answer. THE PARENTS! well known Indian chief of the St. Paul country was shot recently by a lot of raiders from an other tribe. He has been reported killed on several occasions in the last few years but this time there is no doubt. "II. in the D." is "Hole in the body" now, for certain. We learn from one who knows, that was a tyrant toward all whom he could intimidate, brutal, coarse and mean. No tears for him even from hisaercn widows or 'any other man.' We confess to an ad miration for him now and we'll tell you why. On a late occasion an Omaha gen tleman—a Kentuckian by birth—was in vited to exc.urse across the plains to Chey enne and the Rockies. On the way out and return the party saw specimens of the Pawnees, Rappahocs, Souix, Cheyennos &c. The Kentuckian was asked, at a sup per on return to Omaha, which kind of Indian, among those he had seen, he liked the best, which tribe he admired the most, what specimen of tho noble savage most won his regard. His prompt reply was "A dead one!" Hence our Sudden attachment to "Hole.' The dome of the Capitol at Washington is the most ambitious structure in Ameri ca. It is a hundred and eight feet hiyher than the Washington monument at Balti more, sixty-eight feet higher than that of Bunker Hill, nnd twenty three feet higher than the Trinity Church spire of New It is tho greatest dome of iron in tho world. It is a vast hollow sphere of iron weighing 8.000,200 pounds. How much is that? More than four thousand tons, or about the weight of seventy thous and full grown people or about equal to a thousand laden coal cars, which holding 4 tons a piece, would reach two miles arid a half. Directly over your head is a figure in bron-e. "America," weighing 14,9S"i pound*. The pressure of the iron dome upon its piers and pillows is 13,477 pounds to the square foot. St. Peters presses nearly 20,000 nounds more to the square feet, and St. Genevieve, at Paris, 6b,000 pounds more. It would require to crush the supports of our dome a pressure of 7 "f,2bi0 pounds to the square foot. The cost was about $1,100,000. Tho new wings cost about $6,^00.000. The arch itect has a jlan for rebuilding tho old cen tral part ot the Capitol and enlarging the park, which will cost about 53,200,000.

WHOLE No. Radical leaders from Massachusetts and nnd her old puritanical colonies out west as well as her new "settlement" ofcarpet sackers down south are beginning to "smell"' too much "wool" in the votes of the "re-constructed" states of the Gulf and the lower Atlantic. That the former masters of the slaves will not control tho votes of the new-made citizens of the Sou is assuming that ties of association over 100 years old in families of white and black amount to nothing. We believe not in the exhaustion of a subject by lengthy articles. A talented minister once told us that he alwnj's tried to preach in such a way as to leave his audience some thing for reflection. He seldom used up about 40 miuuites in his sermons. Long editorials and long speeches (II. Clay Dean's, for instance) are seldom read and if read at all, the points arc generally lost in the immense clothing of words in which they aro dressed. Georgia's "colored" vote of 17,000 against the rads the late victory in Mississippi the close vote in North and South Carolina—all these elec tions, under the management of the gov ernment Major Generals, mind you, are straws which indicate the currcnt of events. Now read this clip from an and then go to thinking TIU TH IN IT.—The colored Democrats of Memphis held a meeting a few days since, at which several rowdies presented themselves and endeavored to convert it into a Radical pow-vvow. While Mr. Thomas (colored) was calling the attention of his brethren to their former and present condition, he was interrupted by a noisy fellow with the question: "What had you when the war broke out?" To which Mr. Thomas replied: "I had a great deal more than I have now, and it was in no danger of being stolen from nie by Radical thieves. (Loud applause.) True, I was a slave, but had a kind master whom I love to this dav. The Bible snid that the people of Ethiopia would one day become it people, and they are last teeomiug so, but tliey never wiil be, if they adhere to the Radical party. They have promised you land, but they lied to you when they"did so. The only way you can ever get your land is to go to work, and when you make a dollar, save it, invest it in land, and become part and parcel of the people of the country. It is the only way you will ever get "it. The New England States, in the first place sold us into slavery brought us from our na tive African homes, and almost forced us upon the people of the South. We, as a people, are too poor to hold ourselves to gether, and we must depend up«n the whites and all thinking colored men, know that what is the white man's interest is also the colored man's." Mr. Thomas was followed by several colored speakers, expressing similar senti ments. Mr. Avent said he had been a slave, but intended to stand by his South ern friends. We quote: "At the beginning of the war, the col ored people were prosperous and happy. Now wo have nothing. Every good sol dier who came from the North went home at the conclusion of the war, but the thieves staid here, and from that time to the m-esent, they have done nothing but steal." At the conclusion of Mr. A Mr. Bruce arose and sai 1: "The colored race have lived three years under Radical rule, and they have, even in that short time, sounded the lowest depth,* of degradation. The Radicals pre tend to he the friends of the colored men, and no doubt they are—for his vote, and after that is given, they have no further use for him. Who owns the lands of tho country? Where are the men of our race to get employment, and gain a living? The radicals came here, carpet bag in hnnd, and as soon as they could succeed in tilling them, they would leave on the first train for the North, and lenve the colored men to enjoy the benefit of the hate they had engendered.

TAI COMING AGONY.—The new style of pants gentlemen—of course for ycntle men,—is to be pictorial. Some represent a quiet landscape in the country, with cat tle and sheep browsing near bbubliug streams and unbrageous recesses others picture forth in all the fascinations of fes tive art, lofty mountains in which peaks lift themselves up and slumber quietly in pillows of the softest clouds: others detail the gay and exhilerating scenes of the ball-room with ladies in their most beauti ful costumes and radiant in tho most bo witching graces and still others give street life, horse cars, omnibuses, various vehicles, dogs, mannikins, and other lively photographs of active life. Tho ladies will find much to admiro about the legs and bodies of fashionable young gentle men in about two months. This will be a sort of return compliment to the opposite sex, whose pedals have been a sort of ob servation by the mail genus since the early days of one Mr. Adam. What lady-liko designation is that which is spelt forward and backward the same Madam. A Philadelphia physician says that peo ple of forty-five and OW should Mt but two meals a day. A soldier, was tuken before the magis trate of Glasgow for playing 'jivds during* divine service. The account is thus pivet in an English journal: Sergeant commanded the soldiers at the church, and when the parson had read the prayers he took the text. Those who had a Bilile took it out, but the soldier had neither bible nor prayer book but putting out a pack of cards, ht« npread them ont belore him. lie first looked at one card and then at another. The Sergeant of the company saw him and said "Put up the cards this is no plaee fotf them." "Never mind that," said Richard. When the service was over, the cottsta* Mp took Riehard a prisoner, and brought him before the Mayor. "Well," says th'e Mayor, "what have you brought the soldier here for?"* "For playing cards in church." "Well, soldier, what have you to saj fof yonrself?" "Much sir, I hope*'* "Very good if not, *ilt punish more than ever man was punished." "I have been" said the soldier, "about six weeks on the march. I have neither bible nor common prayer book. I have nothing but a pack of cards, and hopp to satisfy your worship of the purity of my intentions." THE POTATO BPG.—Coleman's you Then spreading the cards before the Mayor, he began with theacj: "Whon I see this, it reminds ne thai there is but one God. "The deuce reminds me of Father anf Son. "The trea reminds me of Father, Son and Holy Ghost. •'The./bw reminds me of the four Evan gelists—Mathew, Mark, Luke and John. "Tha five reminds mefof the five wise virgins thsit trimmed their lamps. "The sij reminds me that in Bix days the Lord made Heaven and Earth. The .seven reminds me that on the seventh day God rested from the great work, and hallowed it. "The rif/ht reminds me of the eight re ligious persot s who were saved when God destroyed the world, viz Noah, his wife, his three ns and their wives. The ninr reminds me of the nine lep ers that were eleansed by our Savior. There were nine out of the ten who never returned thanks. "The ten reminds me of the Ten Com mandments which God handed down to Muses on the tables of stone. "The l.iiitf reminds me of the Great King of Heaven, which :s PRINTERS vent's speech, God Almighty. "Tlie quceti reminds me of the Queen of Sheba, who visited Solomon, fur sho was as wise a woman as he was a man." "Well" said the Mayor, "you have giv en a description of uil the cards in the pack but one." "What is that "The knave," said the Mayor. "I will give your honor a description of that too, if you will not be angry." "I will not," said the Mayor, "if you do not term me to be the knave." "Well," s:tid the soldier, "the greatest knave that I know of is the constable that brought me here." "I do not know," said the Mayor, if he is the greatest knave, but I know ho is the greatest fool. "When I eonnt the number of cards in a pack, 1 find there arc fifty two—the num ber of weeks in a year and I find four suits—the number of weeks in a month. "I find there are twelve picture cards in a pack, representing the numberof months in a year and on counting the tricks, I had thirteen—the number of weeks in u quarter. "So you see. sir, a pack of oards serves for a Bible, Almanac, and Common Pray-' er Book." are unlike other classes of men. Their vocation imparts to them an intelligence that does not result from any other business. Dealing with language exclusively, in combinations of letttrs, words, sentences and paragraphs, they are constantly brought into communion with thoughts arid tho working, and these in sensibly become imbued with the ideas of these minds whose creations they help to embody into those forms that give them to the world. They literally get grammer at their fingers' ends while picking up the types that form sentences that are gram matical. Spelling comes to them as natur al as breathing, far ti.ey fall into correct orthography through force of habit. The characteristics of printers are not so favor able to personal thrift as those of other professions. They partake of the nature of the artists in some degrees, and are generally liberal to a fault, thoughtless of the future, and frequently improvident of the past—flush when in a good situation, and dead broke when on tramp. They may be said to be the working Bohemians of the world of operatives. Hurat Wit?IJ, ill referring to the potato bug, which has already commenced its ravages in Missouri gives the following advice to those growing tho edible "When a few garden potatoes are raised the bugs and the larxaj may be brushed off by holding a tin pail on the side of the vine and with a little stick knock them off into the vessel. They may be killed by pouring boiling water upon them, but great care should bo taken not to inhale the fumes arising from the insects. Where large fields aro culti vated, another method is recommended. Take a bru-.h harrow and run it over the rows of vines, this will knock oil'the larva) and most of the bugs—which are naturally disinclined to flv: then immediately cover them with a one-horse eight inch plow. The larvae when mature will go into the earth to change, but they are not ready when thus covered aud can not extricate themselves, and thus perish. ANTIDOTE FOR ALL POISONS.—A plain farmer says It is now over twenty years since I learned that sweet oil would euro the bite of a rattlesnake, not knowing that it would cure poison. Practice, observa tion and experience have taught me that it will cure poison of any kind on man or henst. 1 think no iarmer should be without a bottle of it in his house. The patient must take a spoonful of it intern ally for a cure. To cure a horse it requi res eight tunes as much as a man. It is an antidote for arsenic and strychnine. It will cure the sting of bees, spiders and other insects it cures persons who have been pohoned by a low Running vine growing iu the meadow's callcd Ivy.
