Two rosebud lips apart Disclosing milk-white pearls. Two wondering wide blue eyes. Now bright with baby gladness; Beamins on some small prize. Now wet with some small sadness. Plump shoulders, soft and white. For kissing surely ment; Rumpled and crumpled muslins. With here and there a rent. Dimpled title fingers. Every where they fumble; Restless, little active legs. Now and then a tumble. Saucy little stampings. Pretty little rebel ! "Saucy small expressions In a silvery treble. Ringing shouts of laughter. Sobs of deepest woe; Going to see wee piggies. Hurt a tiny toe. Now naughty wilful ways. And moat Indignant glances; Anon her stick a racer. She caracoles and prances. A little sunbeam ever. With very soltenlng power. Oh ! how her father leves her, Ills sweet unopened flower. II. THE FATHER'S ANGEL. A tiny, weary face, A hot, flush'd cheek and brow, 'Nurse me, papa, I'm tired, I don't want dolly now." A tossing, restless head. The red lips parched and dry, "Drink some nice water, darling;" "Papa, what makes you cry?'' The bright hair like a halo, A little gasp for breath. The gentle moaning ceases. "Doctor, It can'f be death?" A tiny, quiet face, A rounded cheek of snow. Her "Father's little darling" Is her father's angel now. . No gleesome merry shouting, "Papa la at the gate." No ourrying little footsteps For rear she'd be toolate. No rosv lips upheld To get the loos, d-for kiss. An clasping little arms "Waseverpain uae tuisT No folding soft wee hands To soothe away the care. No blue eyes glancing bright Because "Papa is there !" Nosunny.'tnmbled curls. One has her father now. Cut from the little pallid face. From the little icy brow. Dear Lord ! I know 'tis well, I know Thou heard'st my prayer. But home and heart are empty Without my darling there. III. HW DARLING S HOME. They say he has forgotten How hard it was to part," But the wound Is not quite heal'd Yet in her father's heart. Although once but a name. Heaven's very real now Since the golden curl was cut From the lillly Icy brow. Since the small white thing was laid In the little coffin-bed. And home and heart were desolate As word hath never said. " Yes Heaven Is real now His loving darling's home; A tiny hand is beckoning, A tiny voice says "Come" A tiny face Is gaging When he kneeleth down to pray. To beg the Ixrd to keep him To walk the narrow way. For the father of an angel Must be good, and pure, and true; Keeping tue better country. His dai ling's home, in view. This world wss all too dear. Now the bright gold looks dim. And that was why his darling Was taken np from him. Because in paths defiling Weak, erring feet migut roam. The Lord made Heaven real. Made Heaven "Nellie's home." Arthur' Home Magazine. SURE TEST OF DEATH. To learn with absolute certainty whether a person i dead or not, Dr. Haeo Magnus suggests the following simple method: Tie a strong ligature around a finger or toe of tne supposed corpse, and if life is still present a red dening, which grows gradually dar ker until it becomes a bluish red, will occur In that portion of the member beyond the constricted point. Where, from exposure or toil, the skin of the finger baa become very much thick ened, a toe may be selected. . On the other band, if life is extinct.no change In color will ensue. The bluisucolora tion of the nails so often seen on the dead body, and also in certain cases of blood diseaee, need not be regarded aa any source of fallacy; for after the application of the ligature, as long aa life remains in the body, the whole of the limb, from the place of con struction to the extremity, will be uniformly blue-red ; but If the colora tion do not take place, or only occurs at at circumscribed spot, it can with certainty be concluded that the spark of life has vanished.

If a cold aettles on the outer cover ing of the luDgs, it becomes pneumo nia, inflammation of the lungs, or lung fever, and in many cases carries off the strongest man to the grave within a week, If cold falls upon the inner covering of the lungs, it is pleu risy, with its knife-like pains and its slow, very slow, recoveries. If a cold settles in the joints, there is rheuma tism with its agonies of pain, and the rheumatism of the heart, which in an instant sometimes snaps asunder the cords of life with no friendly warn ing. It is of the utmost practical im portance, then, in the wintry weath er, to know, not so much how to cure a cold as bow to avoid it. ' Cold always comes from one cause some part of the body being colder than natural for a time. If a person son will keep his or her feet warm al ways, and never allow himself or her self to be chilled, he or she will never take cold in a lifetime; and this can only be accomplished by due care in warm clothing and avoidance of drafts and eqposure. While multitudes of colds come from cold feet, perhaps, the majority arise from cooling off too quickly after becoming a little warm er than is natural, from exercise or work, or from confinement to a warm apartment. Scientific American. Mrs. Scott-Biddons' New York agent seemed not to be an adept in geogra phy. - He arranged her western ap pointment in this wise: One night at Davenport, the next at Clinton, the next at Minneapolis, the next at Om aha, the next at Dea Moines, the next at Chicago. The agent was evidently determined that Mrs. Scott-Siddons should have an opportunity to get over ground in a hurry. THE OHIO LAW. Much inquiry has been made of late in regard to the exact terms of the law lately passed in the State of Ohio, regulating the sale of mineral oils. We therefore give below the exact text of the law. Its terms . are very strict, as will be seen, but we believe none too much so for the safety of the consumer and the general welfare cf the trade. We particularly approve of the fifth section, which makes the seller of low test oils responsible for any damapre done by it to property or person. We always maintained that this was the surest way to drive low test oils from the market, ., AN ACT To regulate the sale of Mineral Oils, and other substances for substances for illuminating purposes.aud to re peal an Act entitled "An Act to provide for the inspection of mine ral oils for illuminating purposes," passed April 16, lSb7.

In the whole history of criminal ju risprudence, there has probably never been anything equal to the gigantic trial which was concluded at Moscow, Russia, on the 21st of November, and in which were arraigned five hundred prisoners, upward of two hundred of whom were convicted and -sentenced to cruel penalties. Among the accused were persons in every station in life gray-haired men and youths, men and women ; among the latter some highly accomplished and prepossess ing in appearance. All the prisoners were charged with one of the gravest offenses in the criminal code of Rus siathat of Russia. The code says : "The person that counterfeits the coin or currency of the Imperial govern ment shall suffer death." Notwith standing this rigorous provision, Rus sia has been flooded for several years past with well executed counterfeits of the government treasury notes. The prompt execution ot several who were caught in passing the spurious currency did not check the evil, and for the last three years it became so great that the Minister of Finance was almost in despair. Offers of the largest rewards did not lead to the de tection of the guilty parties. Changes in the appearance of the treasury notes did not do much good either, for so vast is the extent of the Russian Empire, that it takes the Imperial government six months to communi cate its decrees to the remotest parts of the countrv-, , At lengthy la last July, a curious accident gave the government the long-looked for clue, "which led to the discovery of an association of crimi nals of both sexes, banded together for the purpose of circulating spuri ous currency, and which extended from the bleak and frozen shores of the White sea to the Volga and the Black sea. In the course of the fol lowing two months three thousand men and women were arrested; but after a preliminary evamlnation twenty-five hundred of them were dis charged, and about five hundred were held for trial. Among the latter were six Frenchmen, of St. Petersburg, who had been caught printing the counterfeit notes, and a comparative ly large number of women. The pris oners wera all conveyed to Moscow, where they wree confiDed in the vast vaults underneath the Kremlin Pal ace. Criminal law in Russia is bar barous at the least, and the male pris oners were herded together like so many hogs. They received the coars est of food, and straw was their only couch. t n the 20lh of October the trial was opened iu the large ball of the Krem lin, which holds nearly five thousand people. The proceedings were pro tracted for a month, and the prosecu tion succeeded in establishing the guilt of nearly one-third of the ac cused. Two hundred and three of them were found guilty, among them about fifty women. Sentence of death was passed upon the six French print ers, and the other convicted parties were condemned to hard labor in the gold mines of the Ural Mountains for life, or for ten yea's. The doomed men aud women burstintopiercingshrieks and howls, and well they might ; for in case or the former, the sentence in cluded barbarous flogging and brand ing on the forehead with a red-hot iron ; while the women, some of whom were of refined descent, shud dered at the Idea of having to do the most menial work for lite or for ten years at the station houses. In their despair some of the unfortunates threw themselves upon the ground, and their piercing cries, mingled with the clanking of their chains, produced a truly horrible enect. The excite ment and freuzy of the condemned grew from minute to minute more in tense, and the judges, in order to re store quietude, had to call in the sol diers, who with their Kantscheba beat the prisoners right and left, and then dragged tuvm back to the vaults of the Kremlin. THE LANDLADY'S COMPLAINT. I've knowed what it was .to have women boarders that find fault. There is some of 'em would quarrel with me and everybody at my table ; they would ouarrel who tne Ancei ua- briel if he lived in the house with 'em and scold at him and tell him he was always diopping his feathers round, if the couldn't find anthing else to bring np against him. There's nobody knows what a woman that has the charge of a lamny goes tnrougn, but God that made her. I've done my best for them that I loved and for them that was under my roof. Some has always been good to me ; some has made it a little.of a strain to me to get along. When a woman's back aches with overworking herself to keen Iter house in shape, and a dozen mouths are opening at her three times a day, like them little birds that split their heads open so you can a'most see into their empty stomachs, and one wants this aud another wants that, and provisions is dear and rent is hiirh. and nobody to iook to, men a sharp word cuts, I tell you, and a bard look goes right to your heart. I have seen a boarder make a face at what I set before him. when 1 had tried to suit him just as well as knew how, and I havn't cared to eat a thing all the rest of that day, and I've laid awake, without a wink of sleep, all night. And then, when you come down the next morning, all the boarders stare at you, and wonder what makes vou so low spirited, and why you don't look as happy and talk as cheerful as one of them rich ladies that has dinner parties, where they have nothing to do but give orders. and somebody comes and cooks their ainner. and somebody else comes and puts flowers on the table, and a lot of men dressed up like ministers come and wait on everybody, as attentive as undertakers at a funeral. Boarders sometimes expect too much of the la dies that provide for them. Some davs the meals are better than other days ? it can't help being so. Some times the provision market isn't well supplied: sometimes the fire in the cooking stove doesn't burn so well as it does other days; sometimes the cook isu't so lucky as she might be. And there is boarders who is always laying wait for the days when mea.s is not quite so good as they common ly be, to pick a quarrel with the one that is trying to serve them, so as that they shall be satisfied. I hope God will bless all that sit at my table, old and young, rich and poor, married and single. My husband that's dead and gone, always believed that we all get to heaven sooner or later; and since I've grown older and buried so many that I've loved, I've come to feel that I should meet all of them that I have known here or at least as many of 'em aa I wanted to in a better world. And though I don't calculate there is any boarding houses la heaven, I do hope I shall somg time or other meet them that has set around my table, one year after another, all together, where there is no faultfinding with the food and no occasion for it. The J oel at the Breakfast Tabic. A photographer in Berlin hai been sent to the penitentiary for an ingeni ous fraud which he has practice on the aristocracy of that city lor several months past. He pretended he could make photographs of gentlemen so life-like that their dogs would be able to recognize them. When these pho tographs were held up before the dogs of the owners, the dogs would wag their tails and lick the pictures. The other photographers of Berlin, who were unable to perform anything similar, watched their colleague, and finally discovered his secret, It was a very simple proceeding. All he did was to cover the photographs with a thin layer of lard, which the dogs, of course, smelled, and then licked off. i as ip The Danbury Xeus says: ' Playing games ou the aged is not always pro ductive of flattering results. An old gentlemen who frequently comes In when we are busy to talk about the ology and the planets, made his ap- Ccarance the other day at the Dau ury JVt'ic office, when, assuming his blandest smile, the editor passed him a copy of the last report of the Con necticut Board of Agriculture. He was very much pleased with it. He looked it all over, and then, turning to the beginuitig, commenced to read it aloud, and the editor hopes to be nominated for office if he didn't go clear through the volume, carefully and intelligently spelling the long words, aud sitting between the editor aud the door all the time." A gaunt subject of humanity ap plied to one of our citizens for victuals Friday morning. The citizen told him be ought to go to work. " But I can find no work," said the beggar. " Well, go to lecturing, then," was the uncharitable response as the door closed. WASTE OF TIMBER. It is computed that twelve million feet of hard-wood timber are used an- nually for ties alone by American rail- and that seven million cords of logs are consumed in propelling loco- The estimated annual clear- ance of forestland is estimated at over, two million five hundred and fifty thousand acres. With the constant extension of population this tremen dous psroad upon the timber land must, perforce, attain still greater pro portions, and the effect thereby on the climate of the country, is becom ing a serious question th it, if not speedily attended to, may thrust itself upon our notice in a way that will not be agreeable. Scientists have not at tained a full knowledge of the climatic effects of trees, but it has been pretty thoroughly proved by practical expe rience that the presence or absence of forests has positive influence upon the amount of rain. Since Egypt has been plentifully garnished with fig and orange plantations, it is no longer dependent upon the ile for fructifi cation of its soil, but is watered with several inches of annual rainfall, and the stripping of the Apennine range is believed to be responsible for a change of climate in the Parmese ter ritory, where hot. blasts of wind, for merly unknown, are now of Injuri ously frequent occurrence. Wisdom would, therefore, appear to inspire us in this country to take active steps to prevent any sections of our territory from being afflicted with climatic changes that may be guarded against by such simple means aa the produc tion of forest tree. Some few States have already, by legislation, encour aged or enforced the planting of trees, but the greater number have done nothing in that respect, and the vat territories which are just beginning to be assailed by the woodman's ax, are open to the same ravages that have thinned the timber giants in the East. It should at once be the subject of national oversight, to provide sub stitutes for the forests which are daily depopulated in obedience to the de mands of trade, and it would be well if the several States would each occu py themselves in supplementing the action of the central authority.

The Portland Oregonian recently contained the following account of a hunting adventure, which occurred in that region : " A professional hun ter, named Repzs, was out hunting this week, on Martin's Island, down the Columbia. The hunter was ac companied by a young hound only, which started some animal a short distance away in the dense brush. Repzs ran from the thick timber in which he was standing, toward the edge of the water. A clear space of several yard divided the brush and the river margin. On reaching the bank, Repzs halted, and placed him sel( in an attitude of defense. In a few minutes the dog emerged from the timber, and came running toward his master. Immediately following the hound, aud in hot pursuit, a large and ferocious panther bounded in sight. Repzs raised his gnn to his shoulder and fired. The ball took effect in the jaws of the animai, but it did not in fiict any serious injury r.or retard its progress toward the hunter. On firing Repzs retreated into the water np to his' armpits. The wounded and in furiated animal sprang after and 4 tackled ' the hunter. The dog came to the rescue of his master, and made It so warm for the panther tbat it abandoned Repzs and turned on the hound. Repzs waded out toward the bank, turned around and nred the second barrel of the gun at the pan' ther. The load was large buckshot, and took -efTect In the panther's side, The wound was very severe, but did not entirely disable the animal, which was getting the best of the dog. See ing tbat the bound would soon be drowned, Repzs resolved to rescue it, if possible. He had discharged both barrels of bis gun, and cast aside his large bowie knife in the edge of the timber when he stalled to retreat to the water. No time, however, was to be lost, and Repzs sprand into the river to save the dog. By this time the panther had lost much blood, and was growing weak from exhaustion. The hunter, who was a powerful man, seized hold of the panther's bead, and, after a fierce tule,' broke its hold on the bound. The panther now turned on Repzs. A long and despe rate encounter ensued between the hunter, panther, and dog. At last Repzs succeeded in keeping the ani mal's nose underwater until it was quite dead, after which he drew the body to the shore, and tainted from his wounds and exhaustion. The hunter was severely lacerated in the conflict, and has scarcely been able to leave his bed since. The hound was also badly torn KEEP STOCK WARM. The advice which makes the head ing of this article might almost be said to be a stereotyped maxim for farmers, so frequently doe9 it appear in all the papers or the country, both agricultural and those which have an agricultural column. The philosophy of the advice is that stock is much comfortable when protected from se vere cold, tbat it takes lets food to keep them, and tbat they do better, and we should prepare in time for winter. Of course it does not imply that we should build our barns so thai they can be warmed by fires. As gen erally understood by farmers, it means batten your stables light and keep out all the cold. Where this is done and no arrange ment is made for supplying them with fsesh air by ventilation, it is as bad or woise than allowing them to be ex posed to considerable cold. Wewant to advise our farmers who keep stock warm in this way to study physiology enough to know the value of fresh air to animals aa well as men. There is scarcely a farmer in the country who keeps his stock warm who does not ruo into a worse extreme by making them breathe air loaded with etlluvia for hours every day. Observe the character of the air iu the stables when you open the door in the morning, and you will be convinced of it. We once heard a sheep farmer say tbat the best place to stable sheep in winter was in a dry ten-acre lot, shel tered from driving winds. The only advantage in this was that they could have plenty or rresn, purs air. vt e heard another farmer say tbat, in win tering twenty steers, be stabled ten and let ten go the stack all winter, and the ten outside did the best. It was easy to see, on examining the sta bles, tbat ten of them had been de prived of good air, and of course this would keep them from doing well. It is a common remark among the farmers tbat cattle running out all winter, if well fed, come out in the spring strong and in better condition to grow, than those too carefully housad. This appears to argue against stabling them at all ; but when we look at the matter closely, we find it argument in favor or fresh air. cleanliness and exercise; and if we take sufficient pains to supply this condition to our stock tbat is stabled, we will then learn the true value of tue maxim, "Keep your stock warm." Ohio Farmer. av--aa- - It took several years of cdttly liti gation to obtain from the Supreme Court of Vermont a decision to this effect : That a Mrs. Drew, who cut some grass on the public highway, in order that her children might have a path by which they could get to and from school without getting their clothes wet, committed no crime; but that, as Mrs. Drew fed nine pounds oi this grass to her husband a corse, sue committed a trespass, for which she waa responsible to the State or V er- mont. I Home Insurance Company of New York. Principal Office, No. 135 Broadway. j Probably no question occupies a larger share of attention in the mer ways, i eautile world at the present time than that of Fire Insurance. The sad ex motives. perience of the past year has very thorouehlv ventilated the insurance system, exposed its weak points, and shown the necessity of radical change in some respects. Two things appear to be conclusive ly demonstrated first, that absolute security is only attainable in compa nies doing a very large business; cala mities like those of Chicago and Bos ton inevitably sending small concerns to the wall and next, that it is better to have risks widely scattered, rather than concentrated in particular locali ties. Without Intending any invidious comparisons, we merely propose to say something about a eompany which meets the requirements of the busi ness community more completely than any other we could name. Aa our readers have doubtless anticipated we refer to the Home Insurance Com pany of New York, an institution which has amply demonstrated the validity of its claims to publio confi dence, and holds to-day the proud po sition of the leading company in the United States, doing an exclusively fire business. Setting aside all previous statements let us consider the condition of the "Home" at the present moment, after the heavy draft made upon ita resour ces by the Boston conrlagraiicn. Ita entire loss cannot exceed $800,- WO and will probably fall considera bly short or this outside estimate, but even if that entire amount were paid out, mere would still remain assets exceeding $3,700,000 cash, as its com bined capital and surplus, at this time are more than $4,500,000, and from the new business which pours in ceaselessly, its daily income Is not less than S10.000. While a company resting upon such a solid basis as this might continue to do a safe and profitable business upon the rates hitherto current.it Is evident that the only salvation of smaller con cerns consists in a material advance of premiums, and it is prpbable that by general consent, the rates will be increased nearly fifty per cent. There ia no doubt that competition nas hitherto depressed rates below point consistent with security, but reform in this regard, while it will serve to reinvisorate doubtful insti tutions, will render the "Home" abso lutely impregnable against aryl cala- mi:y snort or me general destruction of the universe. The Home Insurance Company was organized in the spring of 1853, its first policy being Issued in April of that year. Previously it had been the custom of insurance companies to re strict their operations to their own immediate locality. The disastious result of this system, aa shown in the year 1835 and 1845. induced a number of New York merchants to lay the foundal ion of a company which should give a wider scope to iu business, and by a judicious selection of risks, place its solve ncy, in case of sudden calami ty, upon a more secure basis. This movement resulted in the organization of the "Home," with I capital of $500,000. In 1858 the Stock holders added $100,000 to the capital, and in 1S59 further increased it to $1,000,000, and from that date the company baa always possessed the largest paid-up capital of any insti tution iu New York, engaged in the same business. In 1S64 the capital was enlarged to $2,000,000, by an ad ditional cash subscription of $1,000,000 and in 10 the capitalization oi a por tion of the accumulations made the entire cash capital $2,500,000. . The premium receipts in 1853 a period of 81 months were $160,905,50 and In 1871 $2,746,70. .besides earn ing and paying to the stockholders over $3,500,000 in dividends, the Com pany have paid for losses, up to Janu ary 1st. 1872, nearly $17,000,000. Such operations could have been conducted to a succeseful issue only by the most consummate ability and thoroughly practical business management, and if the past be any criterion by which to judge of the future, the Home In surance Co. is destined to maintain the leading position among American institutions or the kind. At an early period in its history the "Home" commenced the establish ment of Agencies in all the important business centres throughout the Uni ted Statts, and have now upwards of 1400 representatives, exclusive of Cali fornia and the Pacific coast, which requires about 160 more. These agen cies, while in direct communication with the Parent Office, are subjected to a most careful supervision by State and General Agents. A system so extensive in Its ramincations require the most methodical management in order to securd ita harmonious and successful operation. That these nu merous branches are most admirably conducted is evident from the prompt ness with which thtir returns are made, no company exhibiting in pro portion to its assets so small a "bal ance In the hands of agents." 1 be success attending ita home agencies suggested the propriety of ex tending their field of operations to Europe, and accordingly, in 1870, the Company established a General Euro pean Agency at Hamburg, wnence branches have been located in Eng land, France, Belgium, Holland, Ger many, Austria and Russia. This is, we believe, the only American com any having permanent agencies abroad, and very few could hope to be equally successful, lhe reputa tion oi the "Home" preceded ita ad vent aud ita foreign business is steadi ly increasing. 1 he Directors oi the company are well known gentlemen of position and influence, in both commercial nd social circles. Many of them have been identified with the Com pany from ita origin and to their saga city, in connection with the enter prise and judicious management oh the part of the Executive Officers, the unparalleled success of the Insti tion must be largely attributed. Of course such a prominent position has not been attained without expo sure to the shafts of envious direction and the envenomed arrows of delibe rate misrepresentation, but all such inventions have resulted only in cov ering their authors wun contusion, while the "rlome" nas pursued me even tenor of its way, and is to-day the largest Fire Insurance Company in New York, nor doea it seem possi ble tbat a contingency could arise which Its resources would prove in adequate to meet. This Company ass been represented fora number of years in Warren, by Whittxesy Adams, Insurance Ag't Wedding of a Vetebax Wateb- looxatic William Edwards, of Jay, who is almost Uo years o d. married a woman of 70 a few days ago.

His grandfather was 104 when he died ; his great grandfather was 114, but he regards his father as having been cut off in youth, as he died when only 90 years old. Mr. Edwards intends to make a trip to London next summer, to claim a bounty due to Bitish sol diers over sixty-one years, which, with accrued interest, will amount to near $5,000.

At the sixty-seventh annnal dinner of the New England Society of New iora, at jueimonieo's last week. Gen. Sherman responded to the toast, "The Army ana avy or the L nit?d States," the entire company rising to their feet as he was announced. He Is reported to have said : Mb. President and Gectlfmej : It certainly is to me a great pleasure 10 oe nere io-nignt among my mends, from New England, but I am a little taken aback by this toast being taken so early and not later in the evening, when a briefer response would be more appropriate. I know that thou sands of my fellow soldiers away from here will be rejoiced when they learn that the people of New England have remembered them this night, and that yon all feel toward them the same kindly aeutiment which I have felt on many occasions, for I believe them to be worthy of it. I will speak of my own branch of the service, and I re gret tbat there is no naval officer here to speak for his own more particular branch. The army la free from poli tics, not mixed up with the questions which disturb our peace of mind, and which Mr. Beecher nas so eloquently pictured. It is the institution upon which all men may turn aa a national one simply. The men of the army are sworn to obey the laws of the coun try, the constituted authorities, be they whom they may. They have kept that promise, and surely so fur as I can control them, they will keep it. Applause. Why do I see on your crowded streets so much wealth ; these ladies dressed aa none other in the world ; gentlemen replete with health; carriages outvying almost regal pomp? Wrhy is New York so wealthy ? Be cause (here la a country behind you, filled with an industrious population, to whom the products of the world pass through your gates, and whose productions pass in return on their way to a foreign market, upon alt of which yon make your pro lit. This land is now at peace ; and why is it so? The army, a mere handful of men, are kept ever moving step by step, not enjoying the comforts you enjoy, bnt living as your forefathem did, exposed to storms, living on food which you would reject from your own kitchens. Yon do not see this, but I hear from it every day. It has been the case for the last fifty years, and probably will be until the settlements of the Atlantic and Pacific meet. Therefore am I grateful that you re member them, because they surely are entitled to a share of the luxuries which you are . enjoying to-night. . That is one of the duties of the army, but it is not all ; we now rank as one of the first nations of the world, with a population of 40,000,000 ; we are sep arated from other nations by 3,C00 miles of ocean, but tbat ocean is trav ersed by great lines of steamers, which bring us into daily contact with Eu rope. Then we have neighbors on the north, and thus it is right that we should keep within us that knowledge of military affairs which will enable ua at a very short notice to cope with any power that may come in contact with us. We all know the pride of our people, and that they will not take any Insult, como from what quarter it may. Applause. We must keep up our army in all that belongs to an army. The first thing is a spirit of honor, and tbat I think we have ; then there ia the science of organiza tion, the science by which men are mod a into organized wholes, so that they can be made to execute properly the order of the President, and this science requires study and thought. Then our arms and equipments must be made the best in the world, and I believe that has been accom plished. Applause. I have recent ly seen the armies of Europe, from one end to the other, and I have como to the conclusion that we cannot imi tate any other nation. We differ from them in the character of our people and in the objects to be accomplished ; so we must construct an army for our own purposes, and we must engrail upon it principles of military law which are common to the whole world. We did so in the late civil war, and we can do so again only by and through the knowledge which must be. kept alive through the regular army of the United States. This must be kept as a school, so that we can be prepared at any moment to infuse that knowledge through our militia, so aa to make a whole out of a few. Dur ing our late civil war we spent two years in thia process, and it is a leseon which we should heed; it cost us many lives, and it should never be al lowed to occur again. No one that walks up and down Broadway and ees the young men, strong, hale and hearty, can doubt that give any of us the power to make them into an army, and we will make an army equal to any in the world. Applause. That waa the reason why tne armies or Prussia were so fine, because the best of the young men were selected for them, and we can do the same with our own army if we choose. Gentle men. I thank yon ; I feel I am in an awkward position, following so soon after Mr. Beecher, but I thank you for thus giving me your attention. Great applause. Phil, Cor. N. Y. Times. Stephen Girard's College. None will Question Mr. Girard's liberality and philanthropy in devot ing so large a portion of his hard earned fortune to so laudable a pur pose, and yet this same man confines bis posthumous charity to "poor white male orpbans," and after say ing, "I do not forbid, but I dot reeous- mend, the Greek and Latin lan guages" aa branches or study, wnne iucluding such abstruse studies a astronomy, natural, chemical, ana experimental philosophy," in the curriculum which he lays out for the Instruction of the children, he winds up by enjoining and requiring that "no ecclesiastic missionary, or minis ter of any sect whatsoever, shall ever hold or exercise any station or duty whatever in said college; nor shall any such person ever be admitted for any purpose, or aa a visitor, within the premises appropriated to the pur poses of said college." When I pre sented my ticket of admission to the porter at the college lodge this morn ing. I found myself unconsciously re garding my costume, and considering whether it in any way partook of a clerical character. A moment's a;t r thougbt, however, convinced me til at no sane man would ever accuse me of being a priest or parson, and I was soon laughing over the idea Willi Prof. Allen, the President of the col lege. "Do you strictly enforce this anti-clerical regulation?" I asked of Mr." Allen. "Yes, the law compels me to do so," he replied ; "if anv clergyman, finds hia way in here, he doea so with a tuppressio reri," aud then he laughingly added: "I recall an incident in thia rt'gaid. A gentle man, with a clerical iook about him, him, once presented a pass to the jan itor. The janitor eyed him up ami down, and then said : 'I cannot ad mit you, sir; you are a clergyman.' 'The devil I am !' exclaimed the vis itor, who was a banker, or merchant or engaged in some kind of business1. 'You can pass,' was the quiet rejoin der of the janitor." He kuew at otu-e that any one using such au expression was not likely to infringe on the pro visions of Mr. Girard's will, lie waa not likely to be imbued with any pe culiar theolocical theories, or to have convictions about any special route . to heaven.
