Mayor Brown, in an address -to the
Sunday School scholars of St. Louis,
made a point that is worthy the at
tention of older iieople in these daj s.
Do right for the love of it, and not to
keep an account with your own con
science, charging np any good act you
may have performed as an offset to
tbe wrong vou may commit. The
man who only refraius from commit
ting a crime from fear of punishment
is but poorly fortified against tempta
tion ; but the man or woman who
does right without other incentive
than because it Is right, lives in an
atmosphere through which tempta
tiou cannot penetrate, and bo beset
ting sin will ever take possession of
that man or woman.
''Selfishness is a besetting sin, and
is half brother to crime. It shrivels
tne soul aud buries within the man
all the nobler qualities of his nature.
It leaves its impress on the features,
and the soul looks out gloomily from
its living sepulchre as if it were tired
of its tenement. Pride is of all the
vices or follies of our nature tbe most
foolish, for we are what we are only
by comparison, and who is there that
in his pride looks down upon his
brother, but if he looked up would
find himself beneath ten thousand

of his own has been struck out of that

reinforcements from the crowded hu

cases the foreigners have been. found
luily equal to their ta kg; in others
they have failed to give satisfaction.
For instance, the glass-blowers of
Germany nre not able to work the
tough Pittsburgh glass and, conse
quently, their employment is imprac
ticable. For many years Europe was our
only resort for cheaper ami more reli

[Correspondence of N. Y. Herald.]
The apostle Paul ntfered a great
truth when he paid, " That is first
which is netural, afterward that which
is spiritual, and as we have borne the
image of the earthly, so also ahall we
hear the image of the heavenly."
Christ was a prophecy of the man of
the future. He was the man of the
future the restored man of the future,
living in Divine order, moving in the
currents of the Divine affections. He
lived on tbe higher plane of existence;
while the Jews spoke of God as their
father, parrot like. He called God His
father from an interior couscious ex
perience. The hidden forces of nature
and spirit were disclosed to His gaze;
He saw in the lily or the field, the
spanow, the hen and her brood, the
tender, watchful, loving care of tbe
All Father who Is in the perpetual
endeavor to restore and save all who
will receive that ove into their hearts
and lives. That is the reason why He
was not understood by the Jews. He
was to them an enigma; while men
looked at things only on the exterior,
He looked at the interior of all things.
The seeming righteous Pharisees, the
Keepers or the taw in its letter, were
to Him whited sepulchres, full or dead
men's bones, because they weredevoid
or any spiritual principle. He called
things by their right names; He ex
posed tbe shams, deceits and hypocri
sies ot the times, . consequently He
excited the hate and contempt of those
in authority. That Christ was not
understood, even by His disciples and
immediate followers, I think must be
apparent to every student or the New
Testament. And why? Because the
interior degree or their minds were
closed. They lived and acted rrom a
spiritual principle, it is true, and were
accepted or Him ; but the opening or
the interior degrees of tbe spirit were
reserved for tbe man of the then fu
ture age. That the apostles did not
unoersiand the true nature and mis
sion f Christ, read their history in
i he Acts or the Apostles aud in theii
Epistle. See their narrow-mindedness
in thinking that tbe new kiug
iom was to be confined to the Jewish
nation. Note their surprise when the
gilt or tbe Holy Ghost was bestowed
upon the Gentiles. They had to re
ceive the truth little by little that
God is the universal Father and Christ
the divine humanity. .Humanity

is humanity restored to divine order.
We do not blame the apostles for their
i arrow mintledt.ess, nor do we find
null witli them for not graspitig the
great truths uttered by tbe greatest ot
all teachers. It was the fault of the
limes they lived in. Our object is to
show that the revelation of truth and
us reception is gradual. Christ Hira-
-eir ton! His disciples that He had
many things to tell them, but tney
could not bear them now ; but th
lime would come when He would
ulaiulvl show them or tbe Father.

K. . : , ,
o party has ejer had more than a
tern imrary success that based Its action
simply on a denial or a set ol positive
id aa held by its opponent. The pop
ular mind denaantls something posi
tive something that really possesses
breath and being to which it may
yitld its allegiance. There is no vital
izlng and organic power in simple
opposition and negation. Earnest,
straightforward affirmation has a
power in itself, independent of what
it affirms, greater than negation when
associated with all the influences It
can engage.
The Author of Christianity under
stood ibis matter. His system of re
llgion was to be preached, proclaimed,
promulgated Its friends were not to
win their triumphs by denying their
denials of infidelity, but by persist
ently affirming, explaining and ap
plying the truth. With this system
of truth in his hands so pure, so
beneficent, so far-reaching in it. re
sults upon human character, happi
ness and destiny the Christian teach
er commanded the position. Infidel
ity and denial can make no permanent
headway against faith, unless faith
stops to bandy words with them. That
is precisely what they would like, and
what would give them an importance
aud an influence which they can win
iu no other way. Why should an
impregnable fortress exchange shots
with a passing schooner? Silence
would be a better defense than a salvo,
ana deprive the schooner of the priv

waters, buries the dam, and, rolling
over it, grasps tbe occasion for a new
exhibition of its positive power and
beauty. The rip rap shuts an ocean
noor, but the ocean lias a million doors
through which it may pour its tides.
Stopping to deny denials is as profit
leas aa stopping to deny truths. It is
consenting lo leave an affirmative for
a negative position, which is a remov
al to the weak side !
So a man who has anything teally
positive in him has nothing to do but
persistently to work ami live ft out.
ir he is a politician or a statesman, or
a reformer or a library man, he can
make himself felt most as a power in
he world, aud be securest of ultimate
recognition, by leading a boldly af

who suffers himself to be annoyed by
them will be certain to Keep him busy.
The world has never discovered any
thing nutritious in a negation, aud
the men or faith and conviction will

I think the most curious facts.taken

electric telegraph, was told me by a
cashier of the Bauk of Englaud.
"Once upon a time," then, ou a cer
tain Saturday nigbt, the folks at the

the mistake in arithmetic, for it oc

as if-the old lady in Thread needle

want of it. Luckily, on the Sunday
morning, a clerk (in the middle of the
sermon, I dare say, if the truth were
known) felt a suspicion or the truth
dart through his mind quicker than
any flash or the telegraph itself. He
told tbe chief cashier on Monday
morning tbat, perhaps the mistake
might have occurred in packing some
boxes of specie for the West Indies
which bad been sent to Southampton
for shipment. Ihe suggestion was
immediately acted upon. Here was
a race, lightning against steam, with
eight and forty hours start given, in
stan ly the wires asked "Whether
such a vessel had- left the harbor."
'Just weighing anchor," was the an
swer. "Btopber!" frantically shout
ed the electric telegraph. It was
done. "Have up on deck certain
boxes marked so and so : weigh them
carefully. Tbey were weighed : and
oue th- delinquent was found by
just oue packet of a hundred sover
eigns heavier than it ought to be.
"Let her go," said tne mysterious
telegraph. Tbe West Indian folks
were debted with luu more, ana the
error was corrected without ever look
ing into tbe boxes, or delaying the
veyage an uour. Sow, tnat is what
la called "doing business."

each State ot the Uuiou, as a membel
or oue united body lolitic, will show
to her sister btates and to tbe world
how much she can add to the great
ness of a nation or which she i a bar

To make the Centennial Celebration
such a success as the patriotism am
the pride of every American demands
will require tbe cooperation or th
people of tne whole country. Tbi
United States Centennial Commissiot
has received no Government aid, suet
aa Et.gland extended to her World V
fair, and 1 1 ance to her L u i versa! Ex
po ition, yet tbe labor and respousi
bility imposed upon the Commissiot
is as great as iu either or those under
takiugs. It is estimated that ten mil
lions or dollars will be required, am
mis sum tJougres-tnas provided shal
be raised by stock subscription, aim
that the people shall have tbeoppor
tunity or subscribing in proportion t
tbe population of their respective
States atd Territories.
The Commission looks to the un fail
ing patriotism of the people of every
section, to see tnat eacn coutrioui
iu share to the expenses, and receiver
Its share ot tbe beueniHof an entsrpris
in which all are so deeply interested
It would further earnestly urge the
formation in each State and territory
of a centennial organization, which
shall in time see that county associ

nations are gathered together iu 1876
each Commonwealth can view will,
pride the contributions she has made
to the national glory.
Confidently telyiug on the zeal and
patriotism ever displayed by our peo

The John Bull newspaper, edited b
Theodore Hook, frequeutly indulge!,
in uttebsive persoi all lies in remarking
ou the couduct and character of pub
lie men. A military hero who would
iiersist In placing himself conspicu
ously befote the world's gaze, received
a copious share of what be considered
malignant ana libelous abuse iu. in
columns of said newspaper hie
"Soldier's Spirit on Revenge." An
officer and a gentleman could not
demean himself by calling up a hire
ling scribbler for honorable satisfae
tion. No! he would horsewhip tbe
miscreant in bis den tbe Bull would
be taken by the horns!
Donning his uniform and arming
himself with a huge whip, be called
at the ffice of tbe paper, and scarcely
concealing his agitation, inquired rot
the editor. He was invited by the
clerk to take a seat in the room. He
complied, and was kept waiting wbile
the clerk, who tvcog-iized the visitor,
ran upstairs and in formed the edito
rial responsibility or his name aud
evident purport. After an aggrava
ting delay, which served considera
bly to increase the ill temper or the
officer, the door opened auu a coarse.
rough-looking man over six leet in
height, with a proportionate, breadth
of shoulder, and armed with a blud
geon, elite rid tbe room.
Walking up to the surprised and
angry visitor, he said, in a voice of
"Are yon the chap as wants to see
"You! No- I wish to see the editor
of the paper."
"That's me; I'm Ihe-werry mad."..
"There must be some mistake." :
"Not a morsel ! I'm the head hitter
or this Bull," said ihe fellow.bringing
the nobbed end of his bludgeon in
fearful proximity to the officer's caput.
"You the editor? Impossible !"
"Do you mean to say I'm telling a
lie?" roared tbe ruffian, as he again
raised his knotty argument
"Certainly not by no means!" said
the officer, rapidly cooling down and
dropping tbe whip and his wrath at
the same time.
"Werry well, then ! What are you
wanting wl' me?"
"A mistake.my dearsir a mistake.
I expected to meet another person.
I'll call some other day." and the
complainar t backed to the door, bow
ing to the drawn stick before him.
"And don't let me ketch . you
coming agaiu without knowing who
aud what you want. We're always
ready for all sort or customers army
or naval, civil or military, horse foot
and dragoons."
The officer n tired, resolving to un
dergo another goring by tbe Bull be
fore he again ventured to encounter
the hercalean proportions of tbe fight
ing editor.
When the elerk informed the occu
pants of tbe editorial sanctum of tbe
visit of the irate Colonel, neither Hook
nor the publisher cared to face the
horse whip. A well known jpugilist,
the landlord or a tavern in the vicini
ty, was immediately sent for; a alight
preparation fitted him for tbe part,
in which he acquitted himself with a
complete success. , -- .

reputation of tie fighting; editor of the

Some thirty years ago I lodged from
Saturday to Monday with au inn
aeeper in Ibe cuuatry, who .was also
tiartuer,- Ou the. table tbt Sunday
tiuuer, there, was a nice: piece of
tackled porkr boiled Ihe day before.
ou taeiiug tu, 1 thought il lite most
Jeliciotis I eyvur ale. I requested
'mine host" to give his lecetpfc lor
curing pork.' Ho replied aa follows :
"As boob- a Dajf hogs are dressed
snd cold enough to be cut, I pack tbe
-ide pieces in a barrel or cask, with
pleuty' vt sait ou all sides of each
,'iece, and when my battel is full 1
.uaujediately rull it to my- pump and
.jump in" water Bulil 1 can. see5 the
water cease to sink lu the ve-sei, or
o moisten the Bait on top of the cask.
1 lbe lay a flat stone, aa large as the
vessel will receive, on the contents,
to as to keep the pork always under
he salt or pickle. 1 put it iu my cel
lar, covered so as to exclude the flies,
tnd there it remains until a piece is
an led. Care must be taken to keep
tbe meat under the pickle, otherwise
.t will rust." ..
Here is tbe whole secret of making
4od pickled pork for family Uee.. W e
udve used tbe above method, aud we
waul uo belter, easier or more eco-
. to mical piaaC -It hasofieu happened
bat when we waul to put iloita new
uotk there remains some of the old in
Lhe bottom or the cask.-, iu that case
we poured off tbe pick ie, took the dis-
wlved sail, packed the tresb pork on
be cask, wtin tne addition of fresh
salt if ueceaeary, and ihea poured on
Uie old pickle or water.. ii ibis way
we have bad pork three or four years
to the bottom of our pork barrel, aud
wheu used it was u free from ran
cidity aa it wae three weeks alter it
was put down. Indeed, we seldom
emptied our pork barrel.except when
il wanted hooping. We believe tbat
uoiliug pickle is useless, if not injuri
ous, xutk ought not, if it can be pre
vented, to be frozen before it is put
down. .
Tbe best pork that we ever saw was
that from aouie pigs uuder charge of
a lad who took as much care of them
as some people do of their children.
tivery day iie Used to give them a
liuuerof hot potatoes, tor be said he
didn't see why bis pigs "should have
their 'taters hot as well aa himself."
l'heu he used to scrub them several
umes a week with a brush aud soap,
rinsing tbem well with clean water.
1 he animal seemed lo enjoy their la-
valiou, and used to press quite eager

with bi pail and scrubbing brush.
i heir sly was also .kept pertectly
clean, and their troughs washed out

was pei fection. - .

During sleep tbe brain is compara
tively bloodless, and hence anything
thai will produce tbia result, causes
sleep. Muscular exercise, taken af
ter brain work at aoy : period of the
day, will draw the bluest away, from
the brain moreetlectually and health
ily than any- other agent. : Dr.- Oli
ver Wendell - Holmes tells us that.
during exercise, "the muscles suck up
blood like so many sponges.". .Where
do they get it from ? Obviously, most
largely from those parte which con
tain tne most. And so reader, if you
have counted backward and forward.

you are advised to keep lhe brain at

try a rational plan. Set the muscles

thus giving its overstrained vessels a
chance to gain their elasticity. : Ten
miuulee vigorous exercise, just before
going to bed, is worth more than
tweuty grains of hydrate of chloral
to procure sound, refreshing, healthy
sleep. . Cumulative exercise, be
cause no other character exercise uses
so much muscular tissue with so little
brain-work, and iu such a brief time
and, consequently no -other exercise
