W. BOOGHTOH, . H. HOUGHTOf, IattSrs. Thx Atlantic Monthly has not been paying expense the last year by $20. 000, and Mr. Howtlls will retire from the management, and T. B. Aldrich take hU place; Mr. Howell continuing to con tribute. Thb Woman' Repository ef Cleve land for the term of two month ending Teb. 9lh report that 177 women hare de posited article for tale. 407 article have been sold, bringing $508.03 la cash. They hare still $873.00 worth of article on hand. Their lunch table ha brought in $23.00. . Tn cotton crop of South Carolina i belie Ted to be the largest ever grown in that State. It is said that a total failure never occur with them, though the natural yield is not equal to the growth on the virgin soil of Arkansas and Texas, but these Bute are liable to dis astrous season in which the crop la an entire loss. Bt a motion to reconsider the vote oa the Local Option BiJ, that measure was again brought before the Legislature and put upon its passage, when it wa so effectually killed that it will not likely be again resurrected. Now Itt u try taxing the saloon business. That ha been found beneficial in other States by making it impossible for the lower class of saloons to continue, and thus reducing the number by one-half or two-thirds. and compelling the others to contribute toward paying the expenses resulting from the liquor traffic. Jctx culture is becoming one of the experiments that promises success in different parts of the Union v The plant is a native cf India but adapted to the warmer portions of this country. It has been raised in England but does not ripen its seeds there. It is an annual raised from teed, and grown under the same conditions that rice can be raised. Bagging, burlap, curtain material and carpeting are made from the fibre, which is sow prepared by a recently invented machine. Instead of by maceration as formerly. The plant grows from six to twelve feet in bight, the fibre coming from the limbs and upper part of the stalk. Ax industrious correspondent has just f xed up another slate for the Cabinet, in which Governor Foster is to be Post master-General. As making the story appear more probable, it is said that Lieutenant-Governor Bickenlooper met an old friend in the rotunda of the capi- tol. and, tapping him on the shoulder, exclaimed, "By God, I'm going to be Governoi of Ohio, and dont you forget it." Whatever may be the probabilities as indicated by the foregoing, we must express a hope that no such disgrace is in store for the people of the State of Ohio. Setting aside the question of the morelity of the language used by the Lieutenant-Governor, any man whose culture and gentility Is on a plane with a third-rate pothouse politician has no business to represent us as Governor. We even blush for the Republican party. It may not be required of a man to be religious, but he ought to be a gentle man. We can better afiord to dispense with Governor Foster's services as Postmaster-General than to have Bicken looper made Governor. Tra article "Standing by their Friends" on our first page, ought to convince those who nave been skeptical oa the question of Southern political methods that the charges of fraud against the freedom and purity of the ballot are true, since the Charleston News openly and unblesh iogly admits it, and in a labored article defends it. On the same page, the arti cle "As to Carpet-Bag eers" very thor oughly ventilates the subject of Carpet- . bag rule in the South, and makes that great Democratic war cry appear very 'small and insignificant.' The fact as shown by the census of 1370 that North Carolina had 491 more Northern men than in 1860; South Carolina 172; while Georgia had 149 and Alabama 608 lees than in 1880, makes the sad story of op- pressioa by Carpet-bag rule look like a myth. And yet all of these Statea were overrun by what the South expressively denominates "Northeaa larva'' and com- pares to the scourge of locusts which overrun Egypt. But statistics prove that the average through the South would not exceed 2 votes to a county. The whole thing is shown to be superlatively ridi culous. Our readers cannot afford to neglect a careful examination of these two articles, and if they have any Demo cratic neighbors who are groaning in spirit over the oppression of their South ern Democratic brethren by carpet baggers, hand the paper to them. It would appear Incredible that so small a matter could have raised such a political tempest. t - . Beliability. The little boy who goes to market and forgets nothing for which he had been sent, whoTgoee down street oa errands for father or mother and comes back again with the errand done, proves that he has a valuable business faculty, and one of the moat cecessary elements of character fcr success as a man. The road to failure Is macadamized with . good Intentions. ' "I forgot" or "I meant to do it" is slender consolation for the neglect of important responsibilities, and 1 was just agoing to do It" when the opportunity or the necessity la past, and doing at all is of no use, is in all cases provoking, and In some instances crimi nal. A pilot waa ordered to take his place at the wheel. He took his time for it, what was the hurry, now they were fairly out at sea? The "little more sleep and a little more slumber" In this instance cost eleven mea their lives. A fishing smack was run down and its crew went under in that few moments when . there was no on at the helm. . The ; highest positions in life all involvs im- portent trusts. Persons who are uare- reliable never reach them, because they , are useless, out of place, sad' dangerous to have about anywhere) la the vicinity of great lesnoitsibilitiesV Host of the ter rible accidents occoriag by railroad and steamer, by which human lira is imperil ed and sacrificed, is traced to somebody's neglect of duty. . A merchant wishing to take advantage of a temporary demand for a particular class of goods, directs a clerk to order such a bill by next tnin; gets no word from it, puU off customers. blames the wholesale house, and learns after rival houses . have . furnished the goods that his clerk neglected, then for got to send the order. The habit of de laying any duty soon developes into Iresponsibl forgetfulaess and utter lack of reliability. The man who succeeds in business is wide awake, quick to dis cern, prompt to act, alert, ready to meet opportunity half-way instead of attempt ing a fruitless chase when it has passed The one who neither forgets or neglects a trust, who can be depended upon to bear in mind and do at the right moment and well, things that must not be tardily done or Illy done such an one is always in demand, and his services likely to be appreciated. So the father or the mother who trains sons and daughters to habits of promptness and accuracy and of reliability In little things, is doing them the greatest possible service. Good habiU are better capital than money. Indulgence of their slackness will only defer the penalty they mutt inevitably pay. A little strictness from those who love them best will not be so hard to bear as the disappointment and morti fication of finding out that no where is there a permanent or desirable "situa Uon" for one who cannot be relied upon to do a thing the moment it need to be done. .

They toil not neither do they pay their grocery bill. yet I tay unto you that Solomon In all his glory was not arrayed like a dead beat 'a wife, as she appears at church In the loveliest bonnet of the season seated by the side of her husban J, who like Jesburon of old, has waxed fat be fore the Lord, and they sit In the upper seats in the synagogue. Now, breth ren, be not deceived concerning these dead beats. They are not all low-bred lewd fellows, that hang around corner groceries and saloons. Many of them are well-learned and of pleasing aJ dress; they wear good clothes, and Ulk politics, theology, business, and on finance are they oft times eloquent and windy. Now, herein an we deceived, for they have the knack of talking and appearing like men, but when you trust them too much but not wisely, they discover to you tbelr true luwardne, which enables you to trace their dis tinctive characteristics back to Bene dict Arnold, and on even to Judas Iscariot, and you are satisfied that they are their lineal descendants, and a curse to all classes of industry and legitimate business. They are to be found in all the walks of society, from the pulpit to gutter; from the snob to the tramp The respectably-cultured professional dead beat commences at first by paying cash for all bit purchases; he tells you how prompt he is to pay his debts; that be does not owe any man a dollar and that be never allows himself to owe any one man for any lenztn of time ; in the meantime (and a mean time it Is for the one thit trusts Llm) he fails to get ht wages on a certain Saturday night, or be has bad unusual expenses sickness, perhaps and he would be under great obligations if you could let a little balance run over till the next week And your sympathy and goodness of heart prompts you to favor him. The next weest he pays you. and your con fidence is strengthened. Then comes a series of manipulations and excuses It may be he Is expecting back pension which has failed to come, or bis rent was due and took his surplus funds, or he bad Ubexpected visitors, or sickness, or some other plausible excuse by which yon are Induced to extend credit from week to week, until, at last, your suspicions are aroused and you make vigorous efforts to persuade your cus- tomer to settle; but you awaken to consciousness that yon hare been beaten. Your objection to giving further credit gives mortal offence. It is a downright insult to question his integrity, and you are toM, with the added emphasis of a long list of cuss words, that they will pay when they get ready, and that If you get the money before they do you can let them know. He unceremoniously consigns you to climate where it is aald to be a few degrees wsrmer than summer all the year around, and fctklug his leave. shakes the dust off his feet for a test! mony against you. and with an air of Injured innocence, bestows bis patron sge upon some one who is ' destined to be victim No. 2 at no distant day, pre facing his acquaintance by telling how badly he ha been used, paying cash, as before, until confidence is secured, then Jumping again until he swing around the entire business circle, by which time he finds It convenient to emigrate to fresh fields, leaving unpaid rents, gro cery bills, shoe makers bills, dry good bills.' and all sorts of bills by which be will be held In everlasting remem brance. The Scripture ssys that It pleas ed God to make man only a little lower than the angels, but a dead beat has outdone his Creator all hollow, and made himself so low that I am unable to find language to do Justice to the subject. I give it up. I suppose these dead beats sustain about the same re lation to society as do cancers, fevers, cholera, measles and whooping cough to the human organization, and about the same relations moi aHy as do flies, lice, and buga to the animal creation. A war of extermination ought to be commenced against tbetn at once, for there is no use la talking about reform ing them. If a thief is caught be can be punished by the infliction of the penalty of the law upon him. The dead beat has not manhood enough even to steal and give a chance to give him his just deserts. I believe it is the duty of business men to make common cause against them by each one preparing a carefully revised list of tbelr names and comparing ; them with each other, so that all may be ba their guard and thus compel tbem to starve; steal, or work for a living, and pay as they go. There is no more pitable sight than a human being shorn of houesty and manliness, stooping away down and offering to sell his soul for a little bill of a few dollars ;wormlng,wrigglIng and playing sycophant, hypocrite and sneak rather than assume the honorable conditions and duties of manhood. A Victim. A True Bill. "There la -nothing new under the sun." The unceasing nooa or appli cants for office pouring in upon the President elect, is but the repealing of similiar scenes of the oast. Soon after the inauguration of Harrison, Gen. B. of Ohio, a political and personal friend of the President visited Washington, Lcalled at the White IIoue, and was In formed by the door keeper, that, his orders were not to admit any one, as the President had been besieged by office seekers night and day ever since in auguration ; was completely exhausted and must have rest. "Go and tell him" replied the Gen. "That an old friend Gen. B. from Ohio, who acted as grand Marshall at the celebration of the battle of Tipacanoe, who detpUes the very shadow of an office seeker, wishes to see him." "Admit him promptly" replied the President. "If there is a man in the United States that has not come for office I desire to see him." During the interview the Gen. said: "The Presl dent tbowed me a room about twelve feet squ .re, filled from floor to celling with letters. "These" remarked the President "are all applications for of fice. Prav for me Gen. that I be not worried to death." E. O. F. Our New York Letter. New York, Feb. 21, 1SS1 Proas ear on CorreepoodcBt. Gen. Grant is winnlng.golden opinions by his industry, tact, and bonhommie in many directions. He seems to be a far busier man than when President or Com mander-in-Caief, and is becoming ap preciated widely as a pleaiant. well-in formed, frank, and quiet outspoken Surt of person. In fact, he is quite changed from the character he was supposed to be, except in one respect. He till smokes. At the heal of the Great Fair Commission he is working like a beaver and putting a little of the ginger into his somewhat lagging companions, after the fashion wherewith he was went to inspire hU lieutenanU in old Virginia campaigns. At the Fair of the Brooklyn Fourteenth "Red Legged Devils," his old body guard, by the way, he was the cvnosure of all eye, and the fact of the presence of Je hero of Appamittox was worth a great many dollars to the widows' and orphans' fund of the vet- rans. His business as a presiding officer at great gatherings where prominent men expound their views is quite lively, and altogether the greatest American traveler manages to distinguish him self right royally. The great Fernanda Wood (is not his history written in the book of the Ne Gospel of Peace by Richard Grant White?) is no more. He was a repre sentative New Yorker, one of the mott extraordinary wirepullers and put-up of jobs that ever lived, an aristocratic-look' ing Democrat of the Democrats, whose life waa closely linked with some of the most memorable events in the records of the great city. He will have a tremen dous funeral following, provided, of course, that his family will submit to any public demonstration. A man of iron will, with the persuasiveness of woman, he won his way up from a low round on life's ladder. Few have been so bitterly haled by some men, while so heartily loved by many others. It would never do to omit mentioning the greatest of all Ante-Spring Festi vals, St. Valentine' day. Never was the Saint so devoutly honored. Burden some were the packs shouldered by the unhappy letter cariers, loud were the objogatlons of the clerks who had ta ort their contents, yea, like unto the musical roar of Niagara in volume, but betokening much dissonance within those outraged bosoms. Small boys rang neighbor's door bells incessantly as they in an amateur way rivalled the boys in gray with cargoes of more or less affection. The cost of some specimen was large, and really some of the valentines of to-day are very hand some and well calculated to be joys for a long time, if not forever, being em phatically tilings of beauty. Prangs' Christmas cards have been closely ap proached by one unique sttle which took my fancy immediately, and I shouldn't wonder if the Art Amateur or some other enterprising journal, with kindred arms should get up a prize competition against the re-currence of the feast of Cupid and Hymen. One particular spec imen, a richly colored chromo repre senting a bonk of violets, with a charm ing cupid trying to climb a silver cres cont, the whole fringed with old gold floss silk, was really quite too awfully lovely for anything, at least so I was in formed by a young person whom 1 should consider a reputable authority on the subject. - Radix.

Change in thermometers ranging as high as eight to ten degrees have been found to occur when applied to certain purposes, snd kept at a high tempera- ture for a considerable period. A tea plantation was established last year by Couut d'Amtgoupoa his estates near Messina, Italy.

John Duncan, a poor Scotch w eaver. has presenteJ the University of Aber deen with his herbarium of neatly 1,- 200 British plants, collected by him while moving about as a hi r vest laDorcr over the southern districts of Scotland and the north of England. In his ex treme old age, this self-educated de votee of science is dependent on parish relief. Dr. TIiebold ' lately exhibited a beetle at a scientific meeting, giving these figures to Illustrate its physical strength :' Weight of beetle, two grains; weight moved by it, 5) ounces 1.320 times the weight of the beetle.

O. Wood. It respires after a manner totally different from that of hiiiher animal.'. The "spiracles" admit air into two tubes, which run along the fides of the body. The insect docs not breathe through its mouth or nose, but through the sides of its body. It has a large number of brains through the body, which explains why it is so dif ficult to kill au insect, as each separate brain has to be destroyed. According to a recent work by Prof, Bischoft, an eminent Munich anatomist, the average wcizht of the human brain is 1,303 grammes for mn and 1,219 grammes for woman. The difference between the average br.iln-weiglit of man an 1-woman thus amounts to 143 grammes, or 10J percent. The brain- weight of inuti exceed that of all ani mals except the clcplnnt (4,500 gram mes) and the Urger Cetuceaj (2,500 grammes). The brain-weight of the largest npes is hardly a third of man's. Prof. Bijcliofl's data comprise the weights of brain of 539 men and 347 women. Wiso Words. It is better to nccl relief than to want heart to give It Riches without charity arc nothing worth.
