Poor man, he has always been unloriuoace. .ueiormea aim ui-sur- rounded in early life, be brought to himself tbe deepest curse in celling an appetite foretrongdrink. Among the boys ne nag always tieen a gooa fellow," but the other night he un fortunately put himself on the wrong side of one of our window?, and to day be left and the constable, went with him. Of course it is weakness, but we felt sorry with the man's sorrow, nor do we just now judge those places very harshly that nave aeait loo kindly with rogues. Isn't it just as well toiudge great sins too lightly as to judge little sins too heavily? Do let us sin on the other side of the fence once in a while. It is strange how much better sheep look at some times than at others. They are really popular just now, while but little over a year ago almost anyone like John Randolph could bave gone out or the way to kick one. We know of men who sold sheep last spring at low figures and bought cows at the tallest, and this year if chance comes they will probably reverse tbe operation in every par ticular. Many men keep themselves poor by chasing the market. Wool, beef, cheese, grain, have alternately paid the highest profits, and are per haps about even in the long run; and as a rule those men have done best ho have settled on that production to which their farms are best adapted. and bave stuck to it. Tbe highest capabilities of most farms can only be brought out by " mixed farming," and it is generally best not to go to the utmost extreme in anything. At least don't sell all thecowsand invest wholly in sheep before year after next. We confess to a weakness for study- ins tbe almanac, and when tbe first Chronicle Calendar comes out we beg for the post of compiler. e shall eschew all patent medicine advertisements as wt do the Father of lies, but we shall cling to the old wood CJts. You remember how in January two men in a barn stood in attitudes tearfully suggestive of- threshing, while in February as if to confirm any gloomy forebodings, flax is sol emnly "broke" and " batcbeled " be fore our eyes. Especially should we insUt on the picture for June, where two men (the ever present two) have each brought a sheep dowu to the bauk of a stream, and sit under a shady tree for the ostensible purpose of shearing, although one is asleep, and the other watches some ancient youth who await a fii-h bite on tbe other side. These scenes bring au air of repose that is comforting in our hurried age. We fel it. CLEMENT. In first number for "burdening process "read "hardening process." Bismarck and the Jews. [New York Methodist.] The Jewish journalists seem de lighted with Bismarck's compliment to their race, in bis late speech against the clerical party. He declared that he found the Jews -to be the best administrative functionaries of tbe Government. European statesmen generally know this fact, in respect to finance at least. But in all depart ments of business which require thorough care and close calculation of contingencies and probabilities, tbe Jewish intellect is pre-eminent. The Hebrews have also moved to the front in other intellect ual labors, since their emancipation in Knrope, espe cially in Germany. The educated German Jew is now among the best examples of theGerman mind. Auer bach is in the first classof German nov elists. In the mure recondite studies for which the nation is distinguished, Hebrews are found among its first scholars, in and out of the universi ties. In journalism they perhaps excel any other lineage. The liberal journalism of Germany may be said to De in the hands of German Jews, and they make it a felt power through out the country. Bismarck is too shrewd a statesman not to have ob served this fact. One dark night, not long ago, a burglar entered a private residence in a country town. On ascending one flight of stairs he observed a light iu a chamber and while deliberating, "What to do, a large woman suddenly descended upon him, seized him by tbe throat, pushed him down through the ball and forced him into the street before he had time to think. " Heroic Itepuise of a Burglar by Woman," was the way the story ap peared in tbe newspapers next day. But when friends called and cou gratulated her upon her courage, she exclaimed "Gooa gracious, I didu't know it was a burglar. If I bad I should have been frightened to death. I thought it was my husband come home drunk again, and I was deter mined h shouldn't stay in the house in that condition." As the trials of life thicken, and the dreams of others fade one by one into tbe deep vista of disappointed hope, the heart grows weary of the struggle, and we begin to realize our Insignificance. Those who have climbed to the pinnacle of fame or revel in luxury and wealth, go to the grave at last with the poor mendicant who begs by the wayside, and like him are soon forgotten. Generation after generation have felt as we feel, and their fellows are as active In life as ours are now. They passed away aa vapor, while nature wore the same aspect of beauty as when tbe Creator commanded her to be. And so it shall be when we are gone. The heavens will be as bright over our grave a they are now around our path. The world will have the same attraction for offsprings yet unborn that it had once for ourselves, and that It baa now for our children. It is said the more clumsy, awk ward and ungraceful a man is, tbe warmer his heart and more sensitive his feelings. [From the Gazette and Democrat.] A. O. OF U. W. Some time ago we spoke of some of the objects of the Ancient Order or l uittru iturauini, fjiumirMiij; m le gume the subject at some future time. In accordance with said promise we will proceed to notice : Object 7. "To use all legitimate means in their Dover to adjust all differences which may arise netween employers and employees, and to labor lor the develop ment or a plan oi action tnat may oe uen- eticial to both parties, based on the eter nal truth that the interests oi lauor ana capital sreenaal and shoul.l receive cinal protection." That there do differences arise be tween employers and employees, no one will for a moment deny; dill'er ences which are very serious and dif ficult to adjvist. Therefore we think that this is one of the most worthy objects, one which should eugae the attention, and call into exercise all the judgment and mental powers of tbe workiugman, as well as the man of capital. The order pioposes to use ail legitimate means, all honorable means, all wise and intelligent means, to ad just all differences. Sever tor one moment stoopin.c to au unfair, un manly, or unreasonable plau to gain the end nought after, thereby to bring their employers to their teims. But by honorable, lerjilimatc means does the order ol the A. O. U., W., propose to adjust all differences. And by earnest labor and candid thought, by unwearied research, find a plan ol action that may be yes, will lie bene ficial to both parties. Can there 'je any valid objection to such an object? The great mass of mankind are Me chanics, their Helpers and Laborers; or in a word workingmen. This being the fact, would they not be culpably negligent of duty, duty to themselves, their families, their fellow workmen, if they did tot unite for the accom plishment of this object ? Xo advan tage is sought over capital at all, but a plan of action Itcnrticial to both par ties. Is it possible for workingmeu to accomplish anything for their good, their prottction aud elevation, with out union, union of sentiment and of action? Then, in tbe name of reason, why object to such an object, as tbe object stated above. Is the basis, the foundation right? Let us see "Based on tbe eternal truth that the interest of labor and capiial are equal and should receive equal protection." I his is the declaration of the Older, and the world is challenged to contradict the statement, and show to tbe con trary. A writei iu the Household Magazine commences an article on the subject of "Capital ami Lalor," by making use of the following lan guage : The question of the day is "By wbat means shall Labor and Capital be brought into such harmonious aud trustful co-operation as to give fullest employment to all able and willing to worK, anu secure me largest po?si'jie production of wealth, wilh the faiiest recompense to all who contribute to such production?" This is just tbe question which Hie A. O. U. W., propose to answer, the- grand solution earnestly sought for in this object. The men of caoital have ample leisure to study their own in terest, they are prompt in co operation and prompt too in purchasing legisla Hon lor themselves, these are tacts which are indisputable. It is true too, that Capital and Labor a re a matter of necessity united in all kinds of pro ductive industry, and that while Cap ital is represented by the lew. Labor is represented by the mnny, and while Capital is comparatively independent and powerful, Labor apears to be corresponJingly dependent and de pressed. itli these lads in view is it not or the greatest importance mat workingmen unite together for tbe accomplishment of such a good, mi selfish object. Labor without Capital is as helpless as Capital without Labor. One necessity ueeds the oth er. Should Capital invested reap all the bene lit, all the prone, while mere is doled out a bare pittance to Labor as its reward? Should capital double aud treble iu its returns, vs bile tbe re turn or reward of the worEiugman is scarcely sufficient to keep the wolf from his door ? Should the reward of the oue be affluence and ease, while penury and want is tbe leward of tbe other? Should not the piofiis be more equalized, so that while dollar is add ed to dollar by capital, some adequate return roav be realized by the laborer as his to enjoy, his to assist iu the war fare of life. Certaiuly it is right when a man invests his capital in any enter prise requiring la"xr to reconvert the same into money, that he should thereby realize a good, fair profit, but it is equally true that the bone and sinew, the muscle put in force to re convert the same into money, bliould be as justly rewarded, and as fairly remunerated It has been said that every one who, by his energy, i ti Jus tly , tiugality aud cood management, rises out of the needy class, ceases to compete 'or employment, and be comes himself au employer instead. btnehts thereby the class out of which he has risen. Xow this is so, if workingmen do not unite for tbe at tainment of the object stated above, how can they ever hope to rise out of the needy class. Capital is united. It is iu possession of every advantage over those who are without capital. Capital will dictate aud labor must submit, unless workingmen uuite, there is no other remedy but union for the laborer, nothing can reach his case unless he seeks union with work ingmen, for the protection of working- men and for victory over tbe difficul ties which they meet In battles or lire. It has been said too that when A. is impelled to solicit employment as a favor to petition for work aa though his life or the lives of his children de pended on B's hiring him, that he is thus degraded iuto a beggar, and con strained at once to earn bis living, and receive it as the dole of charity. While we Are compelled to accede to the truthfulness of ihe statement, we ask in all candor, when will there ever come a change for the better, so far as the workingman is concerned, if they do not themselves wake up to their own interest. N ill capital come to tbe relief of labor, and emancipate earths toiling sons, from this beggary, this degradation, or securng charity bestowed as tbe reward of labor done? No, sir, never. Capital may depress, or distress the laborer more and still more, but it does not, will not seek for their prosperity. We call on all workers to uuite, and in tbe language of the object here spoken of, "use all legitimate means in their power to adjust ail differences in such a way as shall be beneficial to both parties, for It is an eternal truth that tbe interests of labor and of capital are equal, and should receive equal protection. " And then, and then only will the worker be emancipated from tbe tbralldom and beggary of what other wise is his inevitable lot. The great object to be attained is equal protec tion, equal reward, equal remunera tion. This is what the A. O. U. W. seek for, they desire no more, and by the blessing of God, they will be sat isfied with no less. Tbe object is a good one, and can wrong no one, but will, (if carried out and achieved) be of incalculable benefit to working men. By united en art, united action, united deliberation, the plan shall be discovered, the difficulties shall all be adjusted, labor and capital both shall oe prelected, tne oiessea irui's snail be enjoyed by all. Capital shall re ceive her increase, and labor shall be remunerated fairly, justly and honor ably. -The laborer with confidence and rejoicing shall engage in the active duties of life, with the full as surance that bis efforts have been ap preciated, his labors rewarded accord ing to his merit. And with the con sciousness of the dignity of his call ing, and the purity of his purposes he takes his place among men as a man, having the confidence of all around him, living in the enjoyment of pros perity and happiness be goes forward laboring for tue advancement of all men, especially his fellow-laborers. United Workmen, work on. Your objects are good, they are uuselflsh, they are pure, contend for them, faiut not, weary not, falter not, fail uot un til all shall enjoy the bleseiugs ob tained through your objects, and find that rest the virtuous enjoy, when conscious of duty done. We will no tice other objects at some future time. A. O. OF U. W. SEVEN HUNDRED MILES ON FOOT. ---Where there's a Will, there's a Way. BY PROF. J. D. BUTLER. LINCOLN, March 25, 1872. Nils Xvsten is a Swede,--auil was bom where bis forefather even to the years of many generations, had Deen content with "only this and nothing more" '"To draw nutrition, propagate, and rot." He aspired hiirher. but s low was birth, and so strong the' barriers around him, that he wa threescore years old before he could work his passage to America, two years ago he reached Iowa with his wife, and penniless, stopping first in Mount 1'leasant. While working thereat his trade of wasron uiakinir. he became convinced that his best means of further ad vancement, was to secure a Nebraska Homestead without delay, nis mode of making this boon hisown, is worth telling to encourage the oiners. now he hid it! , He walked from his home to Lin coln, 307 miles, along the track of the Burlington &. Missouri ltiver Kail road. This journey he accomplished in about fifteen days. At Lincoln he found shelter in the Jmmigranfs ftrt. a building provided by the U. & M. liailroad Co., where land lunters may lodge aud live without charge, while seeking farms. Looking at the maps oi public lands in tbe I ntted tstates Laud otnee there, he judged York county to afford the most desirable homesteads. He therefoie walked on thither seventy miles further. Having picked out the farm which suited bim best of all those still vacant, he returned to the Land Office and filed his claim to it, September 2d, 1S71, Piyihg H in fees. His homestead consists of SO acres, in ihe 34th section of the 11th township in the 3d range west, of the Cth principal meridian. WHAT THEN? Repairing again to the farm of his choice he made sundry improvements for a month. He finished Inm a dug out and stacked twelve tons of wild hay. His purse was now empty, save one dollar and a half, but be walked to Lincoln, and thence home, as he had walked hither, daily laying behind him about twenty miles, i rMKin after reaching home, at the end of a seven hundred mile walk, he learned that his hay stacks bad been burned by a prairie fire having no plow, he had been unable to make a fire-break around them. But through out all, beseemed to bave lost nothing of heart or hope, but to have remained aa jolly as Mark Tapley, in Chuzzle- wit. Through all the winter he worked at bis trade, sometimes beginning his tons at two o'clock in the morning. Thus he finished three good wagons two he traded oil for a mule and harness. Then putting m board bis wife, at barrel -of pork-, a harrow, all of wood, made by himsrlf, and some othet needments, he drove westward. by the same route which lie had last fall traveled on foot. He took with him three other Scandinavian Homestead hunters, each with n wagon and his family in it. , He arrived in Lincoln in due time, rested a little among the old familiar hospitalities for strangers, afforded giatuitously by the B. t M. liailroad Co., through the whole-souled keeper, John Frost, a:. d on the 21st of March, in spite of au equinoctial wind, set bis face towards his homestead. His journey thither can hardly lequirt more tlmii three days, but as he must needs be there before the first of April, or be egregiously April fooled, by forfeiting his farm, he resolved to make assurance doubly sure. Hence he has taken time by the forelock. Xils Nysten is sixty-two years old, though he declares himself only forty when just shaved. His example shows what others can do. It shames many faint hearts that are weepinc like women, for lack of a farm, which they have the privilege of seizing like men, had they only manly pluck. Nils Xysten's homestead was one of 9,822 which bad been enteied in tbe Lincoln United States Land Office, before last New Year's. The number there entered since New Year's is 501. The B. & M. liailroad Company have sold 351,705 acres to 3,238 buyers, os ten years credit and six per cent, interest. A Sistek. He who has never known a sister's kind ministrations, nor felt his heart warming beneath her endearing sm lie and love-beaming eye, has been unfortunate indeed. It is not to be wondered if the fountains of pure feeling flow in his bosom but sluggishly, or if the gentler emotions of bis nature be lost in the sterner at tributes of manhood. "That man has grown up among kind and affectionate sisters," 1 once braid a lady of much observation and experience remark. "And why do you think so?" said I. "Because of the rich development of all the tenderer and more refined feelings of the heart, which are so ap parent in every word." A sister's influence is felt even in manhood's later years ; and the heart of him who has grown cold in its chilling contact with the world, will warm and thrill with pure enjoy ment, as some iucideut awakes within him the soft tones and glad melodies of bis sister's voice, Aud he will turn from purposes which a warped and false philosophy has reasoned into ex pediency, and even weep for the gentler influences which moved him in his earlier years. m i I m9 , m Two principles govern the moral and intellectual world. One is per petual Progress, the other the neces sary limitations to that Progress. If the former alone prevailed, there would be nothing steadfast and dura hie on Earth, and tbe whole of social Life would be the sport of Winds and Waves. If the latter had exclusive sway, or even if it obtained a mis chievous preponderancy, everything would petrify and rot. The best ages of the world are always those in which these two principles are tbe most equally balanced. In such ages, every enlightened man ought to adopt both principles into his Mind and Conduct, and with one hand develop wbat he can, with the other restrain and uphold what he ought. Qenz. Cure for Hoof Rot. A veteran stock raiser gives the following as a certain cure for hoof rot in cattle, horses or sheep: "One tea cupful of sharp cider vinegar, one and a half tablespoonfuls of copperas, one and a half tablesnoonfuls of salt. Dis solve gradually on the hot stove, but do not let it boil. When cool, apply it on the affected limb and hoof, and also swab out the mouth of the ani mal with the mixture. Two or three applications usually effect a cure. An over-dressed woman Is a perfect horse a clothes-horse. Provision for Insane of the State. COLUMBUS, March 25, 1872. Eififor Steubenville Herald : Some weeks ago, in an editorial of the neraia, auuuinn to County Innrmaries, you made a courteous, but direct appeal to m personally, to see that something wasdoue by legislation to provide for the iusane now compelled to remain in these institutions throughout the State. Since uemg nere t nave given much attention to this subject in connection with tbedu ties of the committee on Benevolent In stitutions. The delay ol any response has occurred only from a desire to be able more fully to present the facta as tbey have been developing. The condition of the insane in County Infirmaries in Ohio, is the great public re proach of the State. It dishonors not only our Christianity, bnt our very civil ization. It is impossible for the insane to be properly cared for in County Infirma ries without all tbe appliances" of a regu lar asylum the State of Ohio is now hastening to meet this great public need. Three years ago the Central Asylum was burned, largely reducing the capacity of our State institutions of this kind. Our population, and, consequently, the num ber of our insane is constantly increas ing. There are now in the State, under public and private treatment, including: those in County Infir.i aries, aboot three thousand insane persons. The Southern Asylum at Dayton, with a large addition just completed, accommodates .V0 pa tients. inis is under the care or Dr. Gundry, who has made it a mode! of cleanliness, order and humane treatment. The Northern Asylum at Newburgh, near Cleveland, just enlarged and re paired, can now provide for 550 more. It is under the care of Dr. Lewis, and its management is not only an honor to bim, but a credit to the State. Tbe asylum at Longview, near Cincinnati, is a county institution, with a capacity ortOO patients. The State has now nearly one hundred insane there, for which it provides by contract. Truth would not warrant me in speaking of this institution in the same high terms I have of tbe others, so I will say nothing. The State is build ing an asylum at Athens, which will contain 500 patients, and which will probably be completed in a little more than a year. Three miles west of Colum bus, on a beautiful rolling farm of three hundred acres, the Central Asylum is now in process of erection. . This will accommodate nearly 1000 patient". It is not possible that this can be finished in less than two years, but when completed it will be the largest and most perfectly constructed and appointed asylum in the world. It will be fireproof, si.nply be cause there is nothing to burn, sud most thoroughly ventilated. Dr. Perk, whose devotion to this great branch of science, as well as his large experience, so emi nently qualify him for tho post, gives hU whole time to supervising all the de tails of this work, so that nothing will be larking w hich skill, science and energy can accomplish. These institutions, when completed, are designed to accommodate all the in sane of tbe State, and will place Ohio, in this great, hum neand beneficent enter prise, in the same rank she baa so nobly earned in regard to all her public and benevolent institutions. The State is now going on as fast as it safely can with these buildings, but considerable time must be occupied in their completion. In the mean time many of tbe insane must necessarily be cared for in infirma ries, and it is the imperative demand, not of benevolence only, but of humani ty, that more efficient means be made use of by every county in the State, for improving their condition. It is the no blest characteristic of modern, and espec ially of Christian civilization, and its tenderest care and supremest efforts alike are exerted in behalf of the lowly, tbe destitute, the helpless, the unfortu nate. Above all others, the insane are the wards of our common humanity. J. T. UPDEGRAFF. Further Legislation Concerning Streets and Roads. The legislature at Columbus has be fore it two bills, the object of which is to provide for the vacating of roads and ways opaned by private persons and occupied for a period for public use. Oue of these is a House bill, providing that w ben a road has been, or shall be dedicated by private per sons to public use, a majority in inter est of the proprietors of lands lying upon said road may, after giving thir ty day's notice by proper advertising, petition the county commissioners for the vacation of said road, and the commissioners shall have the power to determine and declare tbe road va cated. And the same bill further pto vides for the direct and immediate closing of cros roads connecting main roads which intersect each oth er, in certain cases, by any prty own ing land through which the said road runs. The econd bill having the same general object, is a .Senate amendment tothe act for tbe opening, widening and improving of streeta aud highways, providing that the question of damages may be taken into consideration for tbe alteration or vacation, as well as for the opening of streets aud roads, and assessment made upon the property benefitted. This latter amendatory bill was passed by the .Senate on Thursday, and will doubtless become a part of the im provement bill which has lately be come a law. It is sometimes as im portant for the proper improvement of a locality to bave badly arranged streets and roads closed, as to bave necessary streets and roads opened ; and we hope tbe Legislature w ill not delay to pass one or the other or tne bills framed for this purpose. Cleve land Leader. In the debate in the Houseof Lords' on the 22d ult., concerning the Wash ington Treaty, iarl or Derby rose and desired to know how the govern ment intended to proceed in the treat ment of the treaty. Karl of Granville replied on the part of the administra tion, and the sum and substance may be summed up in a courteous refusal on his part to say what the govern ment was going to do about it. What course the Ministry meant to pursue wilh regard to the presentation of the counter case at Geneva was not even referred to. The press is undecided in its opinions, of the reserve, or se crecy, of th9 government in the mat ter. Endorsed by some as wise and by others as lacking decision, the course of Mr. Gladstone and his Cabi nent Is tbe subject of much adverse aud but little favorable criticism. Sadness. There is a mysterious feeling that frequently passes a cloud over the spirit. It comes upon the soul in the busy bustle of life, in the social circle, in the calm and silent retreat of solitude. Its power is alike supreme over tbe weak and the iron hearted. At- one time It is caused by a single thought across the mind. Again; a sound win oe Dooming across the ocean of memory, and solemn as tbe death-knell, overshadowing all the bright hopes aud sunny feelings of tbe heart. Who can describe" it, and yet who has not felt its bewilder ing influence? Still It is a delicious sort of sorrow, and, like a cloud dim ming the sunshine of the river, although casting a momentary shade of gloom, ft enhances the beauty of returning brightness, "As root of plants, by mysterious forces, draw in the materials of life from the earth and throw them up ward, and themselves lying in dark ness, minister to shining glory of blossoms and leaf in the suullght above, so prayers uttered here in darkness and tears and with no seen results, shall in heaven disclose fruits whose transcendent loveliness the ut most wishes of earth did not meas ure." .

William AlcDougall, formerly member of the Ottawa government and late Lieutenant Governor, in a lecture last night, stated that while in Egnland, he had discussed the posi tion of Canada, as affected by the rela tions'between England and the United States, with Mr. Cardwell. Earl Gran ville, Gladstone and Adderley, Secre tary for Colonies, in the previous government. The conclusion they had come to was this: That all parties recognized the change that bad taken place in the position cf Great Britain and were anxiously preparing, in every possible way, to meet the new state of things. He had been forced to the conclusion, that the policy was not to abandon the colonies, rior to act so as to drive them away from their allegiance, but to prepare them for maintaining their own position, by means of their own right hands; to make them conscious, that if an at tack was leveled against them, they must depend mainly, if not altogeth er, on their own resources to resist it. failing in which they must be pre pared to accept the consequences whatsoever they might be, which would follow an invasion and con quest. Speaking for himself, and speaking freely, frankly and truthfully, he was or tbe opinion that tbe union or these provinces was the preliminary step for the establishment of a system of government in British America which would enable us when the mo ment arrived, when the necessity pressed on us to maintain our separate, independent existence among nations. He believed that that idea was pres ent in the minds of those who took part in that change, but because they foresaw tbe inevitable coniingences, was it to becharged that they were disloyal, as had been hinted ? He took "the position that these men were not open to any such condemnation. He referred to the phrase or ijora Monck about new nationalitv Lord Lisgard's declaration, that an alliance should now take place in allegiance, as well as to tbe repeated observations of the leading newspapers ot England to establish the fact that what the public men of Canada foresaw was based on a correct understanding oi the opinion in tbe mother country. The whole drift of that opinion was, that the connection wilh Canada was a source of embarrassment, from which the mother country should be freed as soon as possible, and if tbe English statesmen and the English press discussed tbe question so unre servedly, without beiug subject to im putations of disloyalty, it could not be charged against the public men of Canada that they were wanting in loyalty, because they recognized the actual position of affairs. The speak er was frequently applauded. A SPHERE FOR WOMEN. [Congregationalist.] Woman are naturally good econo mists. They are apt at understanding how to make limited means go as far as possible. The man and the wife are united in the desire to get rich; the man is likely to think more about earning money, the wife will attach more importance to saving it. Almost every American earns mon ey euough to be well off, and in times to be rich. It he does not become so, it is, in many cases, because he has no wife, or because he does not take her into his counsels. He is full of enterprise and makes an income, and if he does not prosper, it is often be cause he does not hold on to it. His wife, very likely, has the faculty of conversation which he lacks, aud if be has the shrewdness to enlist her in his plans, he may find his fortune made. In continental Europe, book-keeping is a part of the education of well taught farmer's daughters, and the wife presides over the finances of the establishment. With us woman's aptitude iu tbe promotion of material prosperity is too little thought of; aud a woman, who, as a girl, was untaught in respect to judicious economy, makes an expensive wife. Her husband per haps keeps her in ignorance of bis finances purposely. If he is prosper ous, she becomes accustomed to plen ty of money, and ill-prepared for re verses. If he is not proposed, she has to bear the pinching of jioverty without knowing how to help him avoid tbe pressure. Marriage would be easier and hap pier if young women were taught the principles of account-keeping, and systematic habits in respect to finan ces; and if the young husband would take his wire la to his confidence, ana make tbe income and outgo, and the accumulation of the first few thou sand of dollars, a matter of common interest. An American girl of aver age intelligence aud good sense can make the rortuneor a man whose love she enjoys, and who will give her for the purpose a full share in the respon-' sible control of the income of the household. She will not generally be able to enter into his business plans, but if she knows his wages, salary or current profits and his personal ex penses, and can thus foresee what tbe household has to rely on, she will characteristically be ready "to cut the coat according to tbe cloth," and will usually be more scrupulous than he. to lay aside something every sea- sou as the beginning of their fortune. A LUMP OF BROWN SUGAR. Do you eat brown sugar because it is cheaper? If you do, buy a micro scope and examine a lump of the next you taKe home. "Asionisnment, the word won't hall express the feel inss vou will bave at theresult. Least you may not get the microscope.allow us to describe what you can see. ten der a powerful glass Ibere will be seen myriads of horrible monsters as large as beetles, and having the appearance of crabs, Four dreadful legs, with claw-pinchers at the ends cf them, jointed in four parts as with armor, and bristling Willi snarp-pomteu spears, are in front of the menster, and his head has a long pyramidal rorm in two joints, Willi nve nnger tips at the terminus where the mouth should be. The body is oval shaped, and marked almost exactly like that of a crab, only upon tbe rims of an inner circle upon the back there are twelve more of those long, sharp spears, with two at the tail and four snake-like teneacuia, exceedingly nne in the articulation, and no doubt in tended, like puss' whiskers, to be feel ers, to warn the animal of danger. Tbe reverse side shows the ugll ness of tbe beast even more than the obverse; but it also shows the wonderoua mechanical genius of the maker of it. Each limb is padded with a mass of muscle at tbe base or It, wnicn g'ves tbe impression of immense power. and over the muscle there is a case of armor through which it shows. These creatures are eager, restive and rav enous: always falling foul of each other, or attacking great lumps of sugar, as large in reality as a mathe matical point- A spoonful of this raw coarse sugar was dissolved in about three times the quantity of water, when, as with a conjurer's rod, ani malcules sprang to the rurfaoe and floated there.BWimming about aud up and down, like the beauts that wriggle in soft water tubs, and finally turn into mosquitos. They can be seen with the naked eye, but not in their entire hideousnesa. It has been proved that in every pound of unre fined, raw sugar, there are one hun dred thousand of these acari. If seaman should turn back every time be encounters a bead-wind, he would never make a voyage. So he whi permits himself to be baffled by adverse circumstances, will never, make headway in the voyage of life. REBREATHED AIR. Tbe crowded, badly-ventilated school-room i.often the place where, early in life, rebreathed air commen ces its deadly work. Not one school room in a hundred in this country is a fit place in which to confine cnil dren six or eight hours of the day. The little ones are herded together in a promiscuious crowd; those of ten der years and those more advanced, the feeble and the Btrong, the sickly and the well, are all subjected to the same hours of study, the same school discipline, and all breathe the same deleterious air. The hardy and tbe strong may be able to resist the in fluence of the poison; the weak and tender ones grow pale and haggard, am!, struggling on through their school-days, live perhaps to the age of puberty, and then drop into the consumptive's grave. Will parents never awake to the enormity of this evil? femall, ill-ventilated sleeping-rooms in which rebreathed air is ever pres ent, are nurseries of consumption. These are not found alone in cities and large towns, or among the poor and lowly. Well-to-do farmers' daughters and sons in the country those who live among the mountains of tbe New England States, where GoJ'spure air is wholly undefined are often victims of consumption. How is this explained? Look into their bedrooms; examine into their daily habits of life; and the cause is made plain. Old-fashioned fireplaces are boarded up, rubber window-strips and stoves bave found their way into the most retired nooks and corners of the land; and tbe imprisoned moun tain air in country dwellings is heated to a high point, and breathed over aud over during the days and nights of the long winter months. It ia cer tainly true that girls in the country take less exerche in the open air than those residing in cities. They appenr to be more araid of pure cold air than city girls. Consumption is not less rare among females in the country than in cities, in the present age. It wrfi3 not so formerly. The declara rations of grandmothers and old phy sicians go to show that, fifty years ago, consumption was hardly known iu the rural districts. Tbe winds whistled through tbe dwellings then, and the fire blazed aud roared upou tbe hearth. Half the time, in tbe cold winters, "tbe backs of the in mates were freezing, while the front parts cf the person were roasting;" aud yet there was less rheumatism than now, and no consumption. From Dr. SichoW I'irenidc Science. There is a place in Oregon called the Suiokey Valley, where the peo ple have a very curious way of cook ing. They don't have the trouble of making fire when they wish to get breakfast. They just walk out with their kettles, cofle-pots, and what ever else tbey need, and cook at the boiling springs. The water seems a great deal better than common boil ing water, and all they need to do is to have their kettles in it for a short time, and their food is nicely cooked. They are able even to bake it. The bread is put into a tight saucepan, aud lowered into the boiling flood for an hour or two'and then drawn up most exquisitely baked, with but a thin rim on the crust over it. Meat is cooked here, and beans, which are the miner's great luxury. It takes but a minute to cook eggs, or to make a pot of coffee or tea; but if there should chance to be a "slip between tbe cup and the lip," the food would be gone beyond recovery. exchange. Sometimes Father Taylor's mirth fulness led him to use expressions that seem out of place when repeated in cold blood, and especially when printed. A Mr. Snow not being very warm in bis talk, the old father groans out, "O Lord ! melt the Snow." A colored brother, who was speaking ardently, drew out of him the re sponse : "There is rain in that cloud." A man by the name of Wood, who was not noted for his warmth in his talks, drew from Father Taylor the brief prayer, "O Lord ! set fire to that Wood." An old German saying he no more doubted his acceptance with God than that the sun shoue at noon day on a cloudless sky, the old vete ran exclaims, "Bring your Harvard learned ones to th is man, and let them learn true theology." At a Spring field conference, there had been a warm discussion on the propriety of publishing in "the Minutes" the names of the donors to the missionary fund, together with the amount con tributed by each. Father Taylor had made one of his characteristic, poin ted speeches upon ostentatious giv ing closing with the junction, "Let not thy right hand know wbat thy left hand doeth." In reply, it was urged by Dr. Butler that it would be in opposition neither to the spirit nor the letter of scripture to publish the names of these donors; citing, as an illustration in proof of this position, that Christ himself had made lauda tory mention of Ihe poor widow who hail cast two mites iuto the treasury. Father Taylor, half rising add lean ing forward, with a shrill voice, not loud, but perfectly audible in every part of tho house, called out, "will Dr. Butler please give us the name of that poor widow?" Sheep Eatino their Wool- In stances of sheep eating their own wool are quite common, especially during the latter part of the winter and early spring. Some have thought the cause resulted from the presence of a parasite as minute a3 the red spider of some flowering plants which produce an irritation, and to allay this the sheep acquired tbe habit of biting its own skin, and thereby eating its own wool. It is generally believed, however, that the habit is analogous to that of hens eating their own shells, and of tbe abnormal ap petite of cows for old bones, woolen rag-, &c. ; and is caused by an ex haustion of the phosphates in the soil. Old pastuies and fields that bave been long cropped, are deficient in these elements, hence the absence of them in the feed, and consequent want of thera by the animals. Asa preventive, mix a small quantity of bone meal with corn meal, aud give the-fn an occasional feed. Sulphur also has been found to be a preventive of the habit, and many farmers keep their flocks constantly supplied with it. It no doubt assists in giving a healthy tone to ihe system. Maine farmer. The locality where the recent earth quake was most severe was in the middle of the southern part of Cali fornia, iu the new counties of Keurn and Inyo. It is about four hundred miles southeast of San Francisco. Central and Northern California scarcely felt the shock. The shock at Lone Pine is described as resem bling a park of artillery fired beneath the town. Terrible scenes, screams of pain, and cries for help filled the air. It was 2:30 A. M., and three hundred shocks came between that and sunrise. About one bundled persons were injured and thirty killed. Kearn and Owen's rivers ran up stream for some minutes, but present ly returned with increase volume. Plenty of experts for some purposes are to be bad in San Francisco. In the course of a recent trial in that city growing out of a gambling trans action, tbe Judge asked "if there was any man in the room who oould show how a 'cold deck was 'wrung in' in a game of poker;" Extraordi nary to relate, two-thirds of the spec tators rushed for the witness-stand; but at that moment an officer of the court Informed the Judge "that he had a 'cold deck' in his pocket." Such a cloud of witnesses was embarrassing, and the Court concluded not to take testimony npon the points. A Beautiful Illustration. Shortly before the departure of the lamented Heber of India, he preached a sermon which contained this beau tiful sentiment : "Life bears us on like the stream of a mighty river. Our boat slides down the narrow channel, through the playful murmuringsof the little brook and the windings of its grassy bor ders. The trees shed their blossoms over our heads; we are happy in hope, and we grasp at the beauties around us but the stream hurries on, and still our hands are empty. Our course in youth and manhood is along a wider and deeper flood, amid other objects more striking aud magnifi cent. We are animated at the mov ing pictures, and enjoyments and industry around us; we are excited at some short-lived disappointment. Tbe stream bears on, and our joys and our griefs are alike left behind us. We may be ship-wrecked, but we cannot be delayed; whether rough or smooth the river hastens to its home, till the roar of the ocean is In our ears, and tbe tossing of the waves is beneath our feet, and the land lessens from our eyes, and the floods are lifted up around us, and we take leave of earth and its inhabitants, nn til of our future voyage there is no witness save the Infinite and the Eternal. Fondness for Sweatmeats in India. All over India sweetmeats are con sumed as a substantial article of food. A native, when traveling, seldom eats anything else; and between the two great meals, at all times, he whiles away the long noon of the Indian summer day by sucking lollipops or candy between the whiffs of his hookah. Large dishes of sweatmeats are very common presents to make on religious festivals or domestic red letter days; and when a Hindoo wants to be very merry or very dissi pated he never gets drunk, but goes to a " mi thai " shop and makes him self ill with candied sugar. The Ohio river rises in Westeru New York, and joins the Mississippi at Cairo, Illinois, on the Bhores of Missouri. When considered tha Ohio is 1,200 miles in length, and passes through or borders on eight States, but its great tributaries, the Cumber land and tbe Tennessee, pass through two other States, so that, in point of fact, ten states are traversed by the Ohio and its tributaries. These ten States contain nearly half the popu lation of the United States. But de ducting that part ot those States not interested directly in the navigation of tbe Ohio, there yet remains eight millions of people directly interested. John B. Gough tells the following story, thoughathe joke be at bis own expense. Once, while on lecturing tour through England, he was intro duced to a large audience in these words: "Ladies and gentlemen I've the 'onor to introduoe tbe distin guished lecturer, John B. Gaugh.who will address us on the subject of tem perance.
