IW ritten for the Journal-1 Birdie. BY MBit. F. M. IllMO.VD. 3T . . jlVOT many years ago, m a sinan ?3 village in the Far West, lived a feiSN: little blind girl. A very happy iir.mo wm the humble losr-cabin la which she. dwelt. It was very small, and so nearly covered by the dark green leaves of beautiful vines that twined over the rough logs, that any one at a jiiurnn seeinf the brisrht scarlet of the trumpet-flowers, the rich cream color of the wooUDine, me sienuer, goiucii uciid of the honeysuckle, and the white, fpntlierv flakes of the Persian vine, would have taken it for a huge but beau tiful bouquet. It w as only when you were close upon it that you observed the low door and narrow window ; then yon would have thought it a bird's house, so many of those tiny creatures, startled by yonr presence, would have fluttered wildly over vour head. You would have thought rlghtlv, too, a bird did live there; but it "wan Birdie Xestor, and Birdie was the blind girl. All day long yoii coidd hear her sweet voice Einsrine: nieVrily, and the birdies outside trilled out their richest Mraius iu resnonse. God had not taken one blessing from Birdie without giving her another, lie bereft her of sight: He gave her beauty. Iler face was as pure and fuirs the great white lilie, and the June roses bloomed all the year round on her cheeks, and most lovely ,' golden, i ed curls floated all over her slioultiers. i She was so tiny and fairy-like that every one petted and caressed her. She was very poor, but love with his white wings uplifted shielded her as best he could from poverty's darkest frowns. Iler papa had been the pastor of the village church, and now. that he was dead, her mamma taught the parish school, thus securing for Birdie aud her self a home. One day Birdie sat sunning herself In front of the cabin, and singing, when suddenly t'je gun seemed to have hidden himself behind a cloud, for she no longer felt his beams shlng upon her. It was, however, only some one passing between the sunshine and Birdie, for presently a voice quite near her said " Are yoji happy, little one, that yon sit and sing all day long among the birds and flowers?" " Yes, sir," said Birdie, " I am happy pretty much all the lime, and I sing all day long when mamma is gone." .You are wise, little one, to the lonelv hours away with song." " The hours are never lonely ; but iny name is Birdie A estor. not little one: and though I can not soe the bright world, I hear many things that those who see can not. When 1 grow weary of sincrins the birds talk to me Birdie could not see the gentleman start as she mentioned her name, and his emotion did not manliest itself in his voice, as he replied "Indeed, Birdie, what do your name sakes sav to vou t" " O, sir, .there 4 a robin, here who came quite close a moment ago, and as he picked the crumbs from my hand he sung .

Presently a gray old robin fluttered down at her fet, and chirped weakly My birdies are -jrown, my mate is dead. lione is rov voice, and my breast is red: The vav was drearv and the hours so lone. But ('lightened it by "labor aud song." The robin's song was ended, and so w as Birdie', for when they went to call her, slie at smiling among the green leaves, but answered not. me angei had called her, and she was quite ready to go wttH him to his beautiful home.

Birdie." said the geiv tleman, "at least the sentiment is good, if the verse is rather lame. 1 wish now that you would tell me all you know- about vour father. -.- I once hail a very dear friend whose name was the same as vours. He w.19 a minister." " So was my papa the pastor of the little church down yonder," interrupted Birdie. -'I never saw his lace, you know, since I was a tiny baby; but he was great, and strong, aud handsome, too. His voice was so sweet, and he loved me verv much." Tears were coming now, sparkling like dewdrops on her long lushes, and Birdie's voice was trembling, as she continued : tie grew ill after awhile, and got so thin and weak; and poor mamma sobbed and cried all the while. One day, after he had been sick a ions tune, ne tooK me v his arms, and kissed me many times. and said, ' God bless iny Birdie, and take care of her when. 1 am gone'.' 1 cried ever so hard, and begged him not to leave mamma and I, but to take us to the beautiful heaven where he was going; but he only held me closer, and bade me not weep, but be patient and happy, and be mamma's singing bird.: Hesaid that one day God would send an angel to take us both to that happy home above the white clouds and blue sky. I sit and sing all day when the sun shines for fear the angel might . come and ; not find us. Sometimes when it is cold, and rains, I grow weary of waiting. Then some thing whispers to me softly,; 'Patience, Birdie! God has not forgotten you; in His own good time the angel will come.' Then my heart is light, and I Ringagain; and mamma is so happy, and calls me her blessing." ., Tears are in the gentleman's eyes now, and though Birdie can not see them, she wonders why his voice trembles as he replies "The angel may not come for a long time, Birdie; but God may help you to be patient by giving you a great bless ing. When did you lose your sight?" " So long ago that I cau not even re member how mamma looks. If I could only see only see one little moment, just to get one glance at papa's picture, I should be glad; but mama says it is very wrong to wish for what we have not got, for if Got! thought it was best for us we should have it." ' Mama is right. Birdie. Xow let me look at your eyes ?" The gentleman lifted the white lids from the lieautiful sightless eyes, and examined them carefully. When he had finished, he nodded his head as if satis fied, and a pleased smile stole over his face. " That will do, Birdie, I hope I did not g ve you any pain i " ' ' - 1 ' ' - . "O no, sir," and Birdie wished very much to ask the gentleman if he could her any, but she knew that if he thought it best to tell her he would have done so without any questions front' her.' " I must go away now. Birdie," said the gentleman, bnfc I will come again to s.ee your mamma; I hope to find you singing just as loud and cheerfully as ever." . ."... -- '- The pleasant voice ceased, and Birdie heard him walk away, jkmiehow she could not sing any more. She did not even notice the robin as he fluttered close to her singing : 1 must busily labor all the day, . Be I ev so weary and the hours so long. For birdies three are waiting for me, With their hungry mouths and their happy SOJUC. , i -. .; , i i ' 1 I ' - ' Birdie even forgot to assist the poor fellow in his work by sharing with him the crumbs she held in her hand. At last, wearv ot waiting for the attention he was not likely to receive, away he ficw quite disheartened, and when he reached his home in the maple-tree he whispered to his mate confidentially that he could not imagine what ailed their irodinother. she seemed so serious, and took no notice of him. He felt very in dignant, although It was the first time he had been neglected. I i J The hours had never seemed so long aud lonely before, to Birdie, though her mother was not . absent longer than usual. When she came she saw imme diately that something had occurred, and she asked verv softly and tenderly " What is the matter with mamma's song-bird?" .' ' . i!; "O. mamma, a gentleman came aud talked with inc a long while; he said that he knew papa; and he examined my eyes, too, but he did not say any thing. Perhaps he is a doctor, and can heln me to see some dav?" Birdie was correct. That evening the gentleman came again, and he encour aged her mamma to hope that her little girl would soon be cured of her blind ness. The hearts oi ooiu were mien witn iny when they heard this, and Birdie siiiir and (lanced with glee.

She was very grateful, and careful to make good use of the blessing she had regained. She studied, and wrote and traveled, always trviiifr to be ready if the angel should - j r ( come. ; i -- - ;- One day, after she had waited many rran. niul was oulte old. she came back to the village where she had lived a little blind girl.

First Xever raise two crops of corn in succession on land that will not produce over seveniy-uve ousn- eU to the acre. Always plant on a sod, if possible, broken up m September or October, that it may be cross-plowed im mediately before planting. it the breaking can not be done early In the fall, do it as late in the spring as possi ble. Sod broken later than the middle of October in heavv soil will not decay sufllcientlv for cross-plowing before planting time, and with ail tne nai row. insthatcan be done will remain- a cold, heavy, ungenial seed-bed. I doubt if much is gained but time in plowing in the fall for a corn croo.

When there is no tnrf to interfere with deep plowing before your corn-tassels and silks are out, for deep cultivation after that period will destroy and cripple a large proportion of the corn roots, wnicn should be avoided if possible. Hilling and ridging the earth np to the corn is worse than useless. rlat cultivation proves more satisfactory, all things con sidered. Use the double-shovel plow or cultivator, and keep them going, j.Kn i stob to hoe. but plow, plow, plow Never save fodder by topping corn, but cut it below the ear. I commenced top ping the first field of corn that 1 eve raised, because I thought it was too green to cut tin. and would shrink-on the cob, butbv leaving the lower part of the stalk with the ear it would ripen up with full, plump grain. I knew no bet ter then, but a neighbor passing by in formed me that my corn wa3 too green to top, but if I would cut It up the grain would not shrink, because it was a por tion of the stalk above the ear that fed the grain during Its Jast stages of ma turing; and although I did not believe the theory I followed his advice, aud when 1 husked that corn, I found he was right; for all that I topped was badly shrunken and shriveled, while that cut up at the ground was heavy, solid grain. Besides, yon can save more fodder in a day by cutting up at the ground than by taking the tops above the ear.

STORY Ot A GOLD ltli All English paper contains the follow ing story of a gold ring;"Oii the iStk of October last, Captain Tye, the uiaa ter of the smack llary Ann of Colchester, picked up at sea. the dead body ot a bullofk, which was quite warnl when found, aud appeared to have been thrown overpoard by a foreign steamer which passed the Spit way Bouy at .noon on that day on her way to the mouth of tne i names, rne seamaii ot the Man- Ann, having cut up the carcase in order to obtain fat for greasing the rigging, found in the stomach a golden ringl liearing an inscription and the date 1809. The officer appointed to deal with' wreck' under the Merchant Shipping Acts was communicated with by Captain Tye, and it was found that a ship called the Adler had reported that on the day " iu question aa ox that had died of exhaus tion, through stress or weather, was thrown overboard. At about the same time that this discovery was made a let ter was received by Captain Tye from a gentleman at Nordenham, stating that he had read in the Shipping Gazette of the finding of the ring, and that the lady whose name it bore was the wite of a wealthy farmer. Further informa tion was sought, and it then appeared that at the marriage of this lady she and her husband exchanged rings, in the German fashion, aud that one dav last winter, as the latter was engaged in ma king Hour-balls wherewith to feed his oxen, he lost hisj wedding-ring, and as ne uia not Know wnicn ball it was in, or which of his oxen had swallowed it, he gave it upas a bad job. Snbsequently. he sold seven of his oxen to a dealer, who shipped them to England on the 26th of October as part ot" the Adler's cargo. On the voyage one of them died and was picked up as above stated, the result being that the ring has been re stored to its rightful owner. Prospectus for 1872. FIFTH YEAR.

IfellARKABI.K MOltTALITV OF EVER grekns. From Virginia to the Canada shore, and from the eastern slope of the Rocky Mountains to the Atlantic, the evergreens are dead or dying. Millions of dollars worth of hardy plants, that have for year withstood our northern winters, now show the ravages of the zero weather of the last season. Nor way spruce, pines, arbor viuc, juniiers, rhododendron?, dwarf and standard roses m public parks and private gar dens have "put on the sere and yellow leat, ' tneir symbol oi decay, . lng is land has suffered severely. . in the gar- uens at AStoria,w uere immense uumoers of evergreens were growing for sale, the loss is estimatcu at imnureus or uious- ands of dollars. Rows of arbor vitse. containing thousands of plants, are ab solutely valueless, rrosnecx 1'arK and the private gardens in Brooklyn have not been spared in the general disaster, and the gardeners at the Central Park, New York, pronounce the loss in these grounds almost irreparable. "At Flat- bush. T-i, I,, and in Westchester county the loss has been very great. Somo of the nurserymen have lost their entire stock. In other ; places the effect has been peculiar. Plants of the same age ud apparent health, growing in long rows, have been touched at intervals ol a few feet. The lirst dozen in the row are dead, and the next half dozen are well and thrifty, , In Brooklyn, the plants on the north and east side of the houses haye suffered most. In Xew Jersey the horticulturists have noticed that plants which were shaded from the winter sun nave escaped the worst ef fects oi tne season, and may ue saved with much trouble and tune. The re port from the vicinity of Boston and further east confirms the sad tidings of what was only a rumor a few weeks ago. and from the great nurseries at Roches ter, the Ohio valley, and even further west, the words come to us, "Our ever greens are dead." The cause assigned tor this unexpected loss are various, hut from among them the following may be taken as having in them most ot proba bility : irst. it is said that the warm days of February gave the plant-5 an early start, as if the spring had really opened, and then when all were swelling with the new lilc, the weather changed to hard winter, freezing with the cold March winds. Another view is that the plants were killed very early iu the win ter. There was not a gradual diminish ing of the temperature as in former years, but the season came suddenly up on the plants helore they were proijerly shielded or prepared for it. Their color changed slightly, but not enough to cause alarm, and although the plants re mained green they were dead. Only when the warm weather of the last few weeks started the other plants into gener al - activity was the damage to the ever greens visible. In support of the lirst theory it is observed that in one place on the Hudson, a private garden, there were several fine specimens of the golden-bark arbor viae. They had been covered nearly all the winter. During the warm days of February they were exposed, and seemed remarkably vigor ous. They have not been covered since and are now dead. Where the new sup ply will come from is as yet a matter of conjecture. Xurserynien are afraid to purchase the few plants offered for sale until the season is more advanced. Many think they could save some of their stock by carefully nursing it for two or three years : but the ground is too valua ble to be used for that purpose, and the evergreens will be cut down and cast away among the nurserymen, and some of them will be sorely tried in the effort to recover from the losses inflicted by the death of the evergreeus. A fFRlors FIZZLE. Two Arabs aat down to dinner. A stranger requested to join their party, saying, that as he could not buyprovis ious in that country .if they would permit liim'to eat an equal share with them selves, he would pay for the whole. The frugal meal consisted of eight small loaves of bread, five of which belonged to one of the Arabs, aud three to the other . The stranger having eaten a third part of the eight loaves, arose and laid before them eight pieces of money, saying "My friends, there is what I promised you,- ihvide it between you according to your just rights." a dispute arose, ot course, respecting division of the money: but reference being made to the Cadi, ho adjudged seven pieces of tbe money to the owner ot tne five loaves, and only one to him who had the three loaves. And vet the Cadi decided justly. Answer. A has 5 loaves; B has 3 loaves. The stranger eats 1-3 of the eight loaves, which equals 2 2-3 loaves There would now remain u 1-3 loaves. Supposing that A and B shared alike in oitinn. tlm t-omoinitiM T. l-l. tlii wnnl.l give an amount ot exactly z 2-3 loaves to each person. But B only had 3 loaves of his own. Hence the stranger could could only consume 1-3 loaf belonging to is. Tne remainder ot the strangers por tion (9 13) must have been part of A's loaves. Now 2 1-3 or 7-3 was supplied by A, aud ouly 1-3 was supplied by R. But 7-3 is seven times as great as 1-3; that is, the portion belonging to A which the stranger ate was seven times as great as that portion belonging to B, consumed by the stranger. "Wherefore, the Cadi's decision was just, viz. : 7 pieces of silver to A and l to IS, Preaching in theaters has been exten sively carried on iu London.

This subject is ol ton brought up, but it must be sen ously considered . until . every means of reaching the people wim the proclama tion ol the Gospel has been thoroughly tried. This is the way a minister lost a thou sand dollars. The Lehigh (feun.) Ga zette says that a .wealthy V illiatnsport gentleman became so much attached to a clergyman of that city, that he asked him to preach his lunerai sermon, no matter where he might be. The pastor promised that no matter what the dis tance that separated them, or the diffi culties that migUt hp placed between, he woqld, when informed of the death of his old friend, drop all else and hasten to the spot that was to be the last resting place of his mortal remains. The pas tor afterward removed into that vicin ity, and a short time ago received the sad announcement that his friend was dead. Instead of. keeping his promise, he replied that he was unable to be pres ent, as he could not close his church, etc. The funeral took place in due season, but the pastor was not there to perform the last sad rites over the body of his departed friend,- The ceremonies, how ever, were performed by another, and afterward, when the will was opened, it appeared that the old man had been faithful in death, as he was in life, and bequeathed $1,000 to his old friend, pro vided he preached his funeral sermon. Rev, Rtifus Anderson, P. I)., so long the honored and now The honorary Sec retary of the American Board, is ren dering a valuable service in the cause of Missions in the preparation of a History of the Missions of the Board. His vol umes on the Sandwich Islands have been for some years before the public, and he has recently completed the first volume of the History of the Missions of the American Board to Oriental Churches. This volume commences the record of the Syrian, Armenian, Nestorian, and Greek Missions, giving their early his tory, and bringing it down to different periods. No other man was so well qualified to accomplish this work as Dr. Anderson, who for more than half a century has been connected with the Board and familiar with all its opera tions, and he has accomplished his work well. The history is by no means. so full as is desirable," but as a summary of the leading events of that great work of revival and renovation which has boon carried on among the Oriental Churches through the Instrumentality of this hon ored Board, it will be of great value. The volume is from the Press of the Con gregational Publishing .Society, Boston. The six Englishmen who in violation of the agreement between the English and American Commit tee for exploring Palestine, went into the land of Moab iu search of antiquities, did not gain much, excepting capture by the Bed ouins, and the privilege of paying a ran som. They have returned safe and sound. But in the meantime two of our countrymen, Rev. D. Stuart IXKlge, Pro fessor in the Arabic College at Beyrout, and Frederics. Winston, Esq., of New York, who has been traveling in the East, stepped over into Moab, and by an outlay of obtained the prizes for which it U supposed the. English party had been la seuroh. These are sqituexes or casts of three additional stones con taining ancient inscriptions, which judging from the results of the previous discovery, will be of great value. One of these stones was found at Aroer, an other at Dibon, near by, and the third at I'm-el-riiSiis, on the oltl Roman road to There are many sorrowful faoes lite East, The Inscriptions have not yet been deciphered, but the Impressions are on their way to this country, and will soon be iu the hands of those who will be able to tell us what they contain.

Moving Marbles and Mirrors. In pack ing marble or mirrors ior removal tney should be placed by themselves in a box and fixed iu their places, by side pieces and wedges, driven closely, and nailed laths should be placed across mirrors. and no elastic materials, as pillows or feather-beds, be used in packing them Marble should be put iu a box by itself wetted sheets of clean paper laid be tween the pieces, and each piece held firmly in its place by side pieces and wedges. It may tnen be carried over a rough road in a wagon, without iniury. Glass and china ware should be packed upon the same principle that is, they should be so firmly fixed that it will be impossible for them to move and ja against one another. The way the pack ing material is crowded in, to make the whole firm, is of much more consequence than its quality or quantity. Newspa pers, sou straw, or hay may be used but, whatever the material may be, hav every crevice filled, and all well packed Economies in Furniture. Oil Cloth. One of our neighbors sent a set of chair frames to the cabinet makers to lie reseated. The foreman told her he could not promise to do them, as he had plenty more profitable work, but he would sell tne canes tor a trifle and could show he in a few minutes how to put them in as well as it would be done in his shop. The chairs were sent home, the advice taken, and before night thev were al most as good as new. The same lad had an old arm chair, with a splint seat or rather that had one when it was new and she said if she could fix that, site would lie quite happy. I suggested piece of strong canvas,firmly hemmed on all its edges, could be used. It should be large enough to wrap about the rounds that once held the splints, then should be sewed with twine, putting th needle through the edge the hem will prevent pulling or tearing and also through the canvas above the round, in closing it tightly. This will make a firm scat, and cushion can he added, if de sired. It is a pity to have such chairs disabled, for all the family enjoy them, and if thrown aside, the old people miss them sadly, I have seen rocking chairs made prettier than when new', by fasten ing canvas with small tacks where the cane had been, taking care to have the wood work hid as little as possible. If a few layers of old quilts sewed together for stuffing, be added, and the whole covered with rep or Brussles carpeting, the cushion is finished. An old lady dropped in just at night, with her knitting, and her hit of good news was, that she had a nico bit of oilcloth for her kitheu stove, and it had cost her not a cent. A couple of yards of coarse bagging, si.ch as covers pack ages of batting, had been given her at the store, and a few strokes of 8am"s hammer fastened it securely to the side of the barn. It was first brushed over with thin rye-paste; when this was thoroughly dry, it was given a coat of dark brown paint, and when this was well dried, another coat y;ts added, When these had burdened, the edges were trimmed and bound with sn ips of tin. It was pronounced a success. As the materials for tainting were in the house, she enjoyed telling it to her friends how comfortable an article she had made without any expense. I have often seen In print directions for making oil cloth, but never have iioluwl any which advised a coating uf paste first, "but my friend said she was taught by one who had followed oilcloth making, and that It was a gret Improvement.

The estimated increase: of imputation between 1871 and 1S72 48,71!:so that the natural increase is was supplemented by about 16,000, rep resenting the excess ol immigration over emigration. The birth-rate in London In 1871 was equal to 31.3 per thousand persons, neuig U.a oeiow the rate for all Hdiglanu. The Dirtli-rate (says the Times) varies remarkably in different sections of the population, depending much upon ages, proportion of the sexes, con jugal conditions, and- social position. The death- rate In London in 1S71 was 24.7 ler 1,000 being 2 1 above the rate for England. Exclusiveof deaths from small pox the London death-rate would have been only 22.3. As it was, the rate of mortality was higher than In in any year since when cholera was ep idemic. The male death rate iu London in 1871 was 20 6, while among females it was only 22.8; at the recent census there were 113 7 females living iu Lon don to each 100 males. In 1871 there were 8.5P4 deaths from violent causes in London, 1,133 of them from negligence or accident, including 009 from fractures and contusion, among which are 208 deaths eaused by horses or vehicles in the streets.

The last of the Gretna priests Is dead old Simon Lang, who for many years past has been the lone survivor of a long line of self-appointod dlgnitarios. He died April 23. at Kelling, near Xew-castle-on-Tyne (at which place he was staying with his son over winter), and was buried in Gretna churchyard. The united careers of the two Langs, father and son, as priests, extend over fully 80 years. David, the father, was born and brought up iu the parish of Gretna. E,arly In life he went into Lancashire as a draper, or pedlar, and soon afterward was carried off by the press-gang. Dur ing the time he was in the English ser vice the ship in which he sailed was boarded and Liken by Paul Jones, the pirate Paul being the first man who stepped on board, The captives were run into a French port, and induce ments mane for tnem to join the Ameri can service, in which Paul then served David Lang, however, returned safe home to Gretna, donned the priest's ca nonicals in the year 1792, and continued in the v odd jug lino until the time of his death, nearly forty years after. The greatest achievement of his reign was the marriage of Thomas, Lord Erskine. in his old age, to his mistress, 3Iiss Sa rah Buck, of York buildings, Maryle bouc. For this event, it is said, he net ted the sum of 100 guineas. David suc ceeded in joining several scions of noble and powertul houses, moludlnff the Vil- Hers, the Beaucjeros, the Coventries, and others of almost equal standing, lie was cut off rather suddenly in his 72d year, from the effects of a "severe cold. caught while attending the great sensa tional trial at Lancaster, of Wakelield, for the abduction of Miss Turner, a rich heiress, 15 years old. After this event Simon Lang at once entered upon the duties of the priestlv office, and as his father's fame was full in the laud, he natural! v fell into a lu crative branch of business at once. Si mon", however, had his trials among it all. Sonic of his rivals, becoming jeal ous of his success, resorted to all sorts of unprincipled dodges in order to injure and annoy him. If a newly-arrived couple wanted to lind out "Lang, the priest," vliii invariable answer was, " Deid an' btiriet, lang sen'." " But his sou surely he lives ?' ask the strangers. "Deid an' a' dcid's a door nail!" is again the response. Yet In spite of such unfair opposition Simon flourished abun dantly, following closely his legitimate occupations of marrying and weaving, and occasionally varying the tone of these by doing a'littlesuiuggling on the quiet. He long outlived all his compet itors, and saw the decline of the golden days of old Gretna; but still he contin ued in harness to the last. About twelve months since he went through prohably the last marriage ceremony he over in formed, In complete dishabille, having nothing on but his shirt and drawers. The reason of this unwonted exhibition was that the parties reached Gretna from Dumfries by the midnight train, and, like all fond lovers, could brook no delay. So the old priest was aroused from his slumbers to do duty at a mo ment's notice.
