In the morning the boy sunk iutt pro found sleep, and persuading her mother, to lie down, Anne moved around noise lessly, preparing the room for the doe tor. - - A poverty-stricken lightstand, with wasted legs, wa -drawn up to the bed, and with much difficulty Anne sur mounted it with the bouquet, ii the crack-hosed, no-handled pitcher. ' - "It's as good as new,"said she.looking at it proudly, first on one side then on the other. "I wonder what the doctor will say to it." To her mind, the whole room was glorified by it. When the doctor came, before he even glanced at the sick boy, almost before he was over the threshold, he began to snuff. "Snuf-f-f, what's this? snuf-f, flowers eh?. Snuf-f, can't have my patient killed twice. Ah, here they are," snatching them from the pitcher. Anne looked up to him frightened. "He gave them to me," said she, clasping the flowers all dripping.

Throw thtm out of the window and be done with it,' growled the doctor, as he turn ed away. . ,...... , Poor Anne! A big lump rose up in her throat , that she found it hard to swallow, but she made a great effort. "1 have had, it ; three whole days," she thought,, counting It on her fingers, "yes. three whole long, long days.

She held the muiih-loved nosegay in a tight, last embrace, she scratched her nose against the noiiynocis stems, anu twuw net cje winkera with the airy princes' feathers. "One, two, three," she said, in.: a low tone, and with the last word she leaned forward, and shutting her eyes (she couldn't bear to see herself do it) hurled the bouquet down into the street. "That'stUe last of it," .said she shut rlnir down th& window.;, without one 9 vlatiPA out. But here she made a mistake. If she had watched her bouquet she would have seen it spinniug through Jthe.. air faster and faster as it went lower and lower (it came from some six stories up remember) till it pouncea Kernop nrion an enormons 'leghorn : bonnet,- that adorned a woman who happened to be just then "picking her way across the street.'- "Heyday!" xclaimed the astonished woman,'"what's up now r--' - ' This showed how bewildered she was.

I'd know them 'ere hollyhocks, if I should come across them in Chinese Tartailc." " ' Without stoppinir to fix her bonnet that lopped over her face like a wilted cabbage she stalked up the steps into the house the bouquet was thrown from.' ' Anne, whose lips would quiver a lit tle, was smoothing the pillow under the sick boy's head when a quick rap sound ed on the door which was swung wide orjen at the same time, and there stood woman in a comical, one-sided bonnet holdinsr out the banished bouquet, at arm's length. "I'd like to know," said she, "if this come from here? I've been in every other ' room in the house and can't find nothing." "Yes ma'am," answered Anne, threw it out of tha window." "I'd like to know," went on the wo man, "how you got it? I picked these flowers out of mv earden with my own hands, and gave them to Harry to take into town. 1 can't miscaice tnem nouy hocks, and when I was tying it up J savs to Henrv.Henry,' says 1" For the first time the sick boy opened his eyes and looked at the stranger : "What is it.

"You will break my heart witli your scrapes. v liat have you been do ine tovonrself now?" .- ,-" ... . , "Madam,- he ean not bear excitement," said the doctor, and with a great many jaw-breaking names, which nobody un derstood (t oouDt ir ine doctor am mm- self) he told her what had happened. "He can't be moved, eh? ' Then here I stay," and she threw her leghorn anvwhere, ana tucking up ncr petti coats, dumped herself into a chair as Arm as a rock. Vl'm father and mother and everything "else to that 'poor child there, and nobody shall miss him but me."- So she staid and she and Anne, who at first was rather shy of her ,on account ot he ec d ways, become boec-m friends, Anne told her of all her wonderful plans fop the future, especially the one where she and her mother were going to get rich and go to Branch ville. She didn't forget to put in the rockaway and the two brown ponies, Jip and Jim. " Aunt Jame seemed to be as much de lighted tts she was. -"Splendid!" she would say, after she had made Anne go over it time after time. "I know it will come to pass, just exactly so." One morning, the doctor putting his hands behind his back, spoke to Aunt Jane in this wise: . "I think that to-morrow if pleasant vour' --nephew niav be taken home, without risk to his safety." "Bless me," said Aunt Jane. "Now I'm hanpv." Aud she shook hands with everybody twice around like a crazy wo Anne's face though looked anything but pleased, i It looked ready tor a cry "You simpleton," cried Aunt Jane "don't von know vou are coming too I always keep a pig to pet and fatten and eat up the BKlui-miiK, ana, i tn in uresu ful need of a! seamstress," looking at Anne's mother. You can't think how busy Aunt Jane was that day. one made Anne ten over the old story, about getting rich and go- ingto granaiatlicrs, and tne iunny wo man, laughed . and cried, all the way thrnmrh. So the next day away they all steamed in the cars, and when the conductor called out .'"Branchville," Aunt Jane bustled them all out, in the twinkling of an eve. : - "Here we are," said she, with a sly elance at Anne and her roomer who looked as if in a dream, at a pair of brown ' uonies standing in the road harnessed to an old-fashioned rocka- wav. "Ah Jip," said Aunt Jane, rubbing one pony on the nose. ' At this tne otner pony gave a gentle neigh.. . Don't be jealous, Jim," said she ; and she rubbed bis nose, too. Thev rode along for some time tn si lence, then Anne said, suddeuly i "Mother, here we are in the rockaway and here's the two ponies inn ana dip. Do vou think it is real ?" "Yon little goose," exclaimed Aunt Jane, chucklinc as thouehshe were run nlng over inside, "hold your tongue aud sit still, x ou are almost nome. , The rockaway turned a corner: ' "Mother, mother, do you see the hol lyhocks?'.' cried Anne, jumping on her feet; "and look, the house is red, and O, there's the balsams all in the shape of a heart, and I can see the marigolds and this larkspur, and ; the honeysuckl m-owine round the door. It has all come, true, hasn't it." "Hush. dear, don't speak to me," taid her mother, softly. .. Mrs. Lawrence sat with folded hands drinking in the loved, familiar sights she had goloneed for. Even the bum ble-bees were there, humming lazily about the holly hocks, in me artcrnoon sunshine. "You see." said Aunt Jane, in tremble of delight, "that it was I that bought the old place, and I never altered anvtliing, oecaiiie i ukc uiu'imuiiuucu fhfiiKs, being old-fashioned myself.

A Fxkxch paper savs : A remarkable occurrence took place during the severe frosts in the month of September last. A large cedar of Lebanon, of more than wo varus in circumference, on tne prop erty of M. Doteun, at Yillepinte, Can ton de Conesse, in the department of the Jeine et Oise, was completely killed by frost. At how many degrees below ze ro the thermometer stood to produce uch an effect has not been stated. Fences. We are hoping for the time when in this country, as in Europe and the East, we shall be able to do with out fences, but that time is not yet. Illinois is said to have ten times as much fence as Germany ; and Dutches county N. Y., more than all France. A narrow path divides farms in France. Germouy nd Holland. In South Carolina the improved land is estimated to be worth 120,000,000 ; the fences have cost $10, 000,000. The annual repair is a tentli of this. A recent circulation places the cost of fences in the L nited States at $1,3,000.000,000. Nicholas Biddle thirty years ago, said the Pennsylvania fences had co?t 100,000,000, and in JNew York f 114,900,000. Grafting Wax This is an article hat every farmer should keep on hand, ready for use whenever needed, lor it 13 valuable for various other purposes be sides grafting. Woiinds made in prun ing large trees will heal over much soon er if coated with this wax, and if a piece of bark is accidentally stripped from a tree, the place should be covered over with it, and the wood will remain Mund and healthy underneath. There are several receipts for preparing this wax, and I have found the following oetter than any other one tried : Melt in a ba sin one pound of tallow, two pounds of beeswax and four pounds of rosin; stir well together, and keep in a cool place in the dish in which it was melted. If oeeswax is a very costly item, one-third less quantity can be used, lhis wax is most excellent lor sealing tne corus oi bottles whose contents are desired to oe air-tight, and for covering cloths to tie over preserve iars. It can be melted over wbeu required for use, and it will spread with a knife upon bandages etc, is the best cealing wax that can be used tor many purposes. Covering JIancke, It is remarkable that more attention is not given to the subject of covering manure from the weather, and especially rroin too niucn rain. Those who have g ven tne matter particular attention nave iound tnat manure so protected is wonn aouoie mat which is lelt out m the open air. two loads for one is a profit few farmers can afford to lose. There ,13 no questiou which so vitally 'concern the farmer as this one of manure. Much that he does has reference to it. Straw is not to be sold because it makes manure. Stock is fed through the winter for the express purpose of manure making. Articles which scarcely pay to send to marKet, are nevertheless taken to the eity in or der that manure may be brought back as a return load ; and yet the whole ol the manure made remains all the season ex posed to the suu, wind, and rain, until it is diminished in value to so great an extent as it is. The trouble is that lew really believe that exposed manures un dergo this loss. But the matter nas Deen too thoroughly tested to aamitot a aoum. We know first-class farmers who did not themselves believe it, until by actual experiment thev found out its truth. in arranging tarm ounuings, it win pay well to look as much to the preser vation ot tne manure asoi tne nay or grain ; and those who have their build inzs already finished without these ma- nurial arrangements will find that $25 or $30 spent on boards for a shed will rank among the pest investments ever made (iermaniown letegrapn Cultivation ox. thb Potato. Dr. F, W. Heximer. of Westchester county, re cently read a paper on the potato, before the New York Fruit Growers' Club from which the following extract is made: "The principal cultivation of the po tato consists in keeping the soil loose and free from weeds. Whatever process ac complishes these points, best and cheap est, is the best cultivation. As soon as the potato vi nes appear aoove tuegrounu furrow should witn a sniau piow, De plowed away from the rows as close to the potato as possible. About two weeks after this a furrow, with a double mould- board plow, is opened in the center oe tween every two rows, and repeated every two weeks afterward, ; until the vines cover the eround. it tne ueiu is verv weed v and the plow does not destroy the weeds, it is necessary to go over tne ground after plowing and hoe up the weeds left by the plow, and aiso micover vines occasionally covered oy tne piow After the plowing has been discontinued a very important part of tne cultivation commences, lit order to obtain a full crop there should not at any time, be single weed visable in the field, and all weeds growing after the last plowing should be pulled by hand. Alter a ram, when the soil is light and loose, is an excellent time to weed potatoes, and it should have the preference before any otner iarm worK. ine time requireu i: butver' little compared with the. ad vantage gained. The labor saved in digging in a clear field is more than is reauired to pull the weeds when tney are small, not to add the increase of the crop. , We have raised large ciops with out the use of the hoe, by simply plow ing three times aud pulling the weeds twice. "When potatoes are planted late so that theirround can be plowed twice before planting, that is probably the cheapest way to raise ihe crop.

The French woman goes to market, and for a few sous buys a small piece of meat a joint perhaps, which our "crackers' would throw to his dogs a few vegeta bles and a few herbs added, and a gallon of eootl soup is made, which, with a lit tie cold bread, makes a good, wholesome nonnshing dinner lor a latmiy.

Columbus (Qa) Enquirer. RELIGIOUS NEWS. As we advance, our joy increases; it is a beam of the glory to which we are hastening. But griefs diminish; they are the dark shadows of the life we are leaving behind. The Kev. Francis L. Patton has final ly resigued the pastorate of the South resb3-terian Church, of Brooklyn, to accept the Professorship of Didactic and Polemic Theology in the Seminary of the North-West, at Chicago. He entered upon his new duties about the middle of May. Dr. Dollinger celebrated, on the loth ult., the 50th anniversary of his conse cration as a priest. 1 he King ot Bava ria sent iiun the Order of Ludwig, and a letter by his own hand praising Dol linger s lifelong conscientiousness in the faithful fulfillment of his duties, and wishing that "God may still pre serve him for a long time in his physi cal and mental vigor." ; Rev. CrEcsHAJtus, D. D., President of Robert College, who has been spend ing some months in this country, pre senting its claims to American Christ ians, sailed in the Russia last week, for his home. He intends returning to this country in the fall to complete the en dowment of this institution, which ha3 already proved a success tar beyond the most sanguine expectations of its foun der. The applications for the admission of students of all nationalities greatly exceed the accommodations, and already a great enlargement is called for. Thb hostility . which still prevails in the East, and even in many of the coun tries ot Europe against the Jews is one of the strange things connected with the history or this wonderful people. Every where they are spokon against, and in many places they are made the object of senseless and careless persecution. In formation has been received of desperate conflicts in the streets of Smyrna be tween the Greeks and Jews, growing out of a report that the latter, in their relig ious ceremonies, naa saerincedan infant, Several persons were killed and wound ed. At the latest accounts the rioting had ceased, but was expected to be:; re sumed, and troops had been ordered to occupy the city. This groundless super stition is every now and then revived and made tne occasion of assaulting and even murdering a people who inmost Eastern cities are not only harmless but helpless. - . - Southern Colleges. Dr. Bovce, of the southern Baptist Theological bem inary, thus expressed his views at the .Nashville Educational ; Convention, ot the policy to be pursued in building up Baptist institutions ot learning at the South. "If he had his wav with the Baptists of the South he would have: one or he would have two accordiug to the space which, was to be covered great universities, and he would have them far above any college of the land ; ami then he would have colleges . located there, from which the young men would go to these universities after getting tnrougti - witn tueir college education lie would have colleges located at con venient points throughout the fcouth. He would get two or three States to unite upon a college. . He would not have one in each State. He would get, for in stance, Airginia, North Carolina, South Carolina and East Teunesse, at least, to unite upon one. He would let Georgia, rlorida and Alabama mute upon an other. Mississippi, Louisiana and West- Tennessee could have another. He would not have a college in Texas,- ex cept -as a nucleus, until there was a preparation for a still further move to build up a college on a good basis. The result would be, that there would be enough students coming from these States to support, the colleges well, and there would be enough students coming from all these states to support one uni versity, and not more than that. The Anti-Papal Revolt. We give below some items of intelligence respect ing tne progress ot tne revolt in the Roman Catholic Church against the in fallibility and tyranny ot the Pope, The work goes on and the people and his ministers are helping it on : A correspondent or the fall Mall Ga zette writes from Rome, April 9th: Count d'Arnim, before taking leave of Cardinal Antoneiii, was commissioned by Prince Elsmarck to remonstrate with nira upon the attitude ot the Ultramon tane party in Germany. It is said that Count d'Arnim acquitted himself con scientiously in the discharge of the duty imposed upon nim y tne uerman Chan cel lor, and lectured the Pope's Secretary of State with the utmost severity for three quarters of an hour; He stated that the Papal Court, by permitting and even authorizing the excesses of the Ultramontanes in all the countries of Europe, bad forfeited the sympathies of every civilized Government, and that it could now count upon none of them. lie argued that it the Vatican did not desire to destroy the whole influence of the Church, it was absolutely necessary that it should reconcile itself to the ideas of liberty and progress, without a regard lor which no one could now rule any considerable nation. The Minister of Public Worship at Berlin has addressed a missive to the Bishop of Ermeland on the subject of recent excommunications pointing out that excommunication is not purely an ecclesiastical punishment, but likewise derives a civil significance from the per sons excommunicated being outlawed in social relations. According to the law the punishment can therefore not be inflicted by the sole action of the ecclesiastical authorities, but only after the .sanction of the Government has been obtained. The Minister, therefore. calls upon the Bishop to prevent the conflict which thus arises between the civic effects of excommunication and the spirit of the law's of the land. In case of non-compliance the Government will be compelled to consider the recognition of the Bishop by the State as void, and will not be able to maintain the rela tions hitherto existing : between the Roman Catholic Church and the State, The Bishop of Ermeland, in his reply to the Minister, eudeavors at great length to prove that hy the publication of the excommunication no detrimert has been inflicted upon tho civic rank of the per sons excommunicated. Baptism of Miss Smilet. Miss Sarah E. Smiley, the Quakeress preacher who has'ocenpied several pulpits of different denominations within the last few months, was baptized by immersion, in Brooklyn, on Sunday evening last. Rev. Mr. Pentecost, of the Hanson Place Bap . . . e . e i . , - ui viiurcn, perioruieu me ceremony After preaching a sermon from the text, Eph. v. 25-27 "Husbands, love your wives," etc., he stated that Miss Smiley leu it ner uuty to mane some expiana n at ion of the step she was about to take and that she would then be heard. Miss Smiley, who still wore the plain Quaker dress, said Ehe was converted twenty years ago, and then joined her self to the Society of Friends. A year ago sne experienced a new sense ot adop tion that seemed to draw her into ft new and closer relation to Christ, Six years ago she was regularly ordained as a preacher by the Society of Friends. She then accepted all their" tenets, and had always tried to satisfy herself with a spiritual baptism, and a spiritual Lord's Supper. But she had at times felt that this was not satisfactory. A year ago, particularly, she was impressed with the desire to be baptized, but she was unable to see how she could satisfy the desire, and retain her position. She felt that she was called to preach the Gospel, It was her duty to preach. The Society of Friends gave her her commission to preach. Should she renounce her rela tions with that Society could she still preach? This question had agitated her sorely. But at last she had concluded that It was the Lord's work, and He was able to arrange It. Therefore, a week ago she had written a letter resigning her connection witn the Society of Friends. She was now intending to join no other society. She desired fel lowship with all Christian Churches, and considered herself as entering the Church Universal. This , step, she claimed, was not the beginning of her Christian life, but the completion of her consecration to Christ, Mr. Ponteeost, before administering the ordinance, said he did not consider that Miss Smiley became a member of the Baptist Church by receiving baytisni at his hands. The ordinance, he said, was not administered by the authority of the church of which "he was pastor, but on his own authority as a minister of the Universal Church. He then Im mersed her, pronouncing these words : "Sarah E. Smiley, my sister, upon profession of thy faith in the Lord Jesus Christ, and iu obedience to His command as the first Head of the Church, I bap. tizo thee in the name of the Father, the Son, and the Holy Ghost. Amen." PRACTICAL HINTS. The various recipe vAfcA ttlU hereafter be given to our reader in this departments art presented aUy after they have been tested and proeem reliabis.

' Cement for Aquarinm. The troibte with red lead and oil is that it is ipt not always to adhere to the glass, frobabl v the best cement is that wUicb consists of three parts powdered, pipe clay one part of oxide of iron, and about as much linseed varnish as is sufficient to make a stiff paste ; or the so called Jstone cement --nine parts of pipe clay, one of litharge, and so much linseed oil as to he of the proper consistency. This be comes as hard as iron, ahd adheres witli great tenacity to glass or almost anv other substance. yervous or Sick Headache.

The bronnrife ls perfectly harmless, unless ta ken, in very large doses. There will be uo danger, in taking 20 grains every two hours until you have taken three doses. . Bnt most cases, if taken iu hand early, will need only one or at most two doses. Dieretic Hints. Most chronic diseases, and many acute ones, are produced at the table. As a rule no nunl of any k mo snouid oe patten at toe tneai espec ially if the stomach be weaJs, The stom ach should never be over-loaded ; not more than two or three articles should on taken in at one meal ; no stimulants used before eating; tobacco arrests diges tion. Milk is the best diet for infauts and children. Tomatoes with cream and sugar are healthy and nutritious. Bread and butter is the statT-of life and Is easily digested. Too much salt ir ritates the stomach . Colds are f requen t ly produced by drinking hot tea and ex posure afterwards. Late suppers ind nee heart diseases, i Pastry and cakes con stipate the bowels. Fresh Fish strength ens the tiervious system. Boiled pota toes are not as healthy as baked ones. Fruits should be eaten at breakfeastand dinner. The stomach requires much rest to be healthy; purgative medicines weaken the bowels. Cheerful conver sation promotes digestion, anger pre vents it. Mounting Prints. Make a thin size of fish glue or isinglass. Take a good sized flat varnish brush, wet the brush inst sufficiently to moisten the surface of the Erint to the extent of the w idth of the rush and the whole length of the print. Commence at one side and continue in this way until you' have gone over t he whole surface.

Good nature i one of the most prec ious commodities of lite, both to the pos sessor, and to all that conies in contact with him. One may own an exquisite picture, and yet, locked in his hone, its beauty is sequestered, and few derive any pleasure from it. One having pre- lous stones may nasu a moment s ad miration upon spectators ; but good na ture brings happiness to scores and hun dreds: and the best of it is that it takes nothing from the possessor. There is so much care in life so many that are vic tims to low spirits, so much of sorrow, so many that are lauguid through sick ness, or grief, or watching, or want, that any one who can throw a ray of light upon their spirits is a benefactor indeed. Good nature is the most practi cal of all kinds of benevolence. It gives itself forth without measure. It shines like the sun. into all places, high and low alike. It chooses nothing, but blesses ! 11, without discrimination. It allays strifes, pours oil upon friction, lightens the tasks ot lite, and din uses a cheer and glow which wine cannot give ; and . all this, too, while the cause of all this bless ing is himsalf blessed above all. Some men arc good-natured in spots: some are good-natured when they have their own way, or nave lallen upon some good luck; some are good-natured in company and cross at home. Xow aud then we find a real son of light a hero of the luminous heart : one who beams forth always hke summer upon all every where; whom all men bless when lie come3 and all miss when he goes, Such men ought to . wear crowns. ,They do. They wear it unconsciously but a hun dred hearts place it upou their heads, and they go crowned with light all their days. ENGLISH EJIIVRATIOX TO THE IXITEO ST AXES ASD CAM ADA. The most striking feature of emigra tion of the last three years, say the En glish Commissioners iu the annual re port just issued, has been the increase in the number ot English emigrants, es pecially as compared with Irish. Pre vious to lsti'J the Irish emigration had always been much larger than the En- gush, in J 840 tne numbers ot Engiisu and Irish emigrants were 5C,01S and 115. 328 respectively, or in the proportion of 43 to 67 ; in 1869 they were 90,416 and 73,- 32a. or in the-proportion ot bd,2a to 14,78. In 1870 the English were to the Irish as 56.68 to 41.27.and iu 1871 as oO to 41. : Nevertheless,, as regards the proportion to population, the Irish em igration is still much greater than either the Euglish or Scotch, the proportion in 1871 having been: ot lnsn, l.di, Eng- glish, 45 ; Scotch, 57 per cent of the pop ulation . This, as regards Irish and Eng lish emigrants, is neariy the same pro portion as in 1870. in the bcotch emi gration there is a decrease of about 16 percent. Ot the whole number ot em- l lruiits Lucre tteiit iu me; luiivu oLatea. 108,843 ; to British Xorth America. 2,- 071 ; to Australia aud New Zealand, 12, 227; to other places, 8,694; making to tal Of252,430, Of the emigrants to the United States there were of English birth 71,026, or 36.17 per cent ; of Irish 64,511 or 32,98 per cent; of foreign, 43,521 oi- 21.28 per cent not known 4,534 or 2j per cent. Ihe large number ot emigrants of Bru ise birth, and especially offEnglish and Scotch who went with the number who went to Canada will, as the commission ers observe, probably be viewed with regret. This however, is an enevitable consequence of the extent of the emigra tion. Cauada caunot at present absorb more than between 30,000 aud 40,000 em igrants a year, and the excess beyond that number can obtain employment, only iu the extensive labor market of the L nited States. crmors facts . Pianos, it is said, contain fifteen kinds of wood, namely, ptuc maple, spruce, cherry, walnut, whitewood, ap ple, bass wood and birch, all of which are indigenous: and inahocanv, ebony. holly, cedar, beech and rosewood, from Honduras, Ceylon, England, South America and Germany. In this combi nation elasticity, strength, pliability. toughness resonance, lightness, durabil ity and beauty are individual qualities, and the general result is voice. There are also used ot the metals, iron, steel brass, white-metal, gun-metal and lead. There are in the same instrument of sev en and a half octaves, whea completed two hundred and fourteen strings, mak- ing a total ot seven hundred and iglify seven feet of steel wive, and live hun dred feet of white(covered)wire. The total number of strings, when properly stretched to produce the right, tone, ex ert a pull of over ten tons ; this repre sents the force with which one end of the piano is drawn towards the other end and it explains the reason why good pi anos are built so stroug and so heavy. Such a piano will weigh from nine hun dred to one bonsand pounds,, and will last, with constant use, (not abuse,) twenty to twenty-five years.- TO OVU ME Lay it down as a foundation rule, that you will be "faithful in that which is least," Pick up loose nails, bits of twine, clean wrapping paper, and putthc-ni in their places. , Be ready to throw . in an oild half hour or hour's time, when it will be an accommodation, and don,t seem to, make a merit of it.
