v f'l ant afraid I cannot save poor little
Mary Evans,". said Dr. Lisle' to his wife
as lie took his Beat at the supper table,
Tlicy arc all lmlf distracted over there
even Jhe grandmother liiiscoasedto impor
triije'iuc about licr herbs an J nostrums, and
KhatfiM with tears this morning, that 'twas
no use doing anything for Mary, now nhc
had heard the death cull."
"But her mother what does she pay T
asked Sirs. Lisle, her cheek a shade pal
as she ppoko u think the child is every
thing to her, especially since her father has
declared himself an atheist."
, She is calm, but suffering intensely.
'I sometimes think,' that could it bo the
cause of changing my husband's belief,
could spare Mary.' And then her hands
ell, and the tears rolled over her thin face
and there was anguish in every tear.
Poor creature, it will bo a loss indeed.'
'What a beautiful little girl she is,' re
maiKou the doctor's wife, the moisture
standing in her eyes; 'what eloquence in
all her movements ! the fact that she is
dumb makes her so interesting. I never
could look at her unmoved, as I can at
sown children. I was there the other day
and she was sitting at her mother's fect
talking with those large, luminous eyes.
As I went in, she moved back a little, and
in conversation, her mother spoke of Mr.
Evans. She did not shed tears, and she
was talking in very low, subdued tones.
I heard a sob, and looking around the lit
tic child was sobbing in all the abandon
ment of grief.
'It is just so, whenever I ppeak of her
father,' said Mrs. Evans, holding the child
to her bosom; poor littlo one I by some
tieart intuition, sue seems to be aware of
Li danger .J What should I do without thee,
my dear dumb Mary V
'Suppose you go over,' the doctor sugges
ted ; 'Mrs. Evans needs sympathy, and she
tells mo she thinks by some yearning glan
coa of the littlo ono towards the door, she
misses your accustomed visit.'
The doctor's wife needed no urging, and
together they sought the afflicted family.
Mr. Evans was a rich man ; his house
iras the most elegant in town ; his name
tood in bold relief against a ground-work
of silver., 'Ossian Evans,' and at the ring
of the bell came troops of servants. Now
as doctor Lisle ascended the marblo steps
passing into the door, without giving notice.
Molly, the nurse of littlo Mary, stood weep,
ing in the hall.
'What! is the child worse?' exclaimed
the physician, while his wifo ascended to
the room above.
Just then tho father appeared; his eyes
woro red, and his voice husky. He wrung
tho doctor's hand, and his tones faltered
as ho cried with suppressed anguish, 'oh 1
can't bear it doctor. To lose her thus ?
and never, never seo her again ; this, this
is agony unutterable.'
,'An agony such as the Christian never
feels said tho doctor with emotion, 'but
lot mo pass to the child.'
'Stop, doctor-i-bow tell a frantic man ;
Aowcan I believe ? Oh ! if I could if I
could,' largo drops stood on his forehead,
hi 8 eyes glazed and hollow, refused a tear;
he respired heavily like a man in the last
throes of dessolation. 'But go ! though the
stamp is on her forehead ; she is almost
gone. Oh, heaven ! that I could believe,'
he cried most fiercely as the physician left
him; 'this damning doubt that makes my
veins curdle as I cherish it, that fills me
with delight that is full of horrors ! Oh !
God, if .thcro bo a God, havo mercy on
me I1..
Mcanwhilo 'tho little sufferer placidly
awaited death. Shadows laid over the som
bre room ; they were visible ; not bo the
shadow of. that dread majesty who m men
call death, and who, pale with prophetic
silence, held the sceptre abovo the white
brow. Loose and uncurled tho waves of fine,
golden hair, caressed tho lace fringing of
the' pillow. Ilcr eyes, larger and more
mysteriously beautiful, were rivited by
turns upon her mother's faco and upon
things unseen Eave by tho tenants of death
beds. Mrs; Lislo sat near tho mother with
an arm about her waist; tho doctor stood
anxious and soirolvfulon the opposite side,
his hands clasped. Onco he made the re
mark, 'she does no t suffer.'
'Why does not her father oorao in V ask
ed Mrs. Lislo in a gcutlo whispor.
'He says ho cannot see her die;' answer,
cd tho mother, her frame quivering with
suppressed sobs."
FathoVl'.l 1
The voice .was clear, ' distinct, sweet.
The doctor started back aghast, unclasping
bis Lands violontly ; the mother and the
dootdrV wifo sprang to their feet.

With a heavy souu.tl thd awe-struck infi

that shrouded her face.

A PLEASANT SURPRISE.
A young man eighteen or twenty years
of age, a student iu the University, took a
walk one day with a professor, who was com.
monly called the student's' friend, such
was his kindncs to the young men whose
office it was his to instruct
While they were now talking together,
and tho professor was seeking to lead the
conversation to grave subjects, tliny saw an
old pair of shoes lying in the path,
which they supposed to belong to a poor
man who w as at work in tho field and who
ad nearly finished his day's work.
The young student turned to the profes
sor, saying "let us play the man trick ; we
will hide his shoes and conceal ourselves bo
hind those bushes, and watch to sec his per
plexity when he cannot find thcra."
"My dear friend," answered tho profes
sor, "we must never amuse ourselves at
the expense of tho poor. But you arc rich,
and you may give yourself a much great
er pleasure by means of this poor man.
ut a dollar in each shoe, and then wo will
hide ourselves."
The student did so, and then placed him
self, with the professor, behind the bushes
close by, through which they could easily
watch the laborer, and seo whatever won
der and joy he might express.
The poor man had soon finished his work
and came across the field to the path where
he had left his coat and shoes. While he
put on his coat, he slipped one foot into one
of his shoes, but feeling something hard,
he stooped down and found the dollar. As
tonishnient and wonder were set upon his
countenance, ho gazed upon the dollar
turned it around and looked at it again ;
then ho looked around him on all sides, but
could see no ono. Now he But the monev
j
in his pocket, and proceeded to put on the
other shoe ; how great was his astonish
ment when he found another ! His feel
ings overcame him and he fell upon his
knees, looking up to heaven, and uttered
loud and fervent thanksgiving in which
he ppoke of his wife, sick and helpless, and
hi3 children without bread, whom this
timely bounty from Bome unknown hand
would save from perishing.
The young man stood thcro deeply affect
ed and tears fillod his eyes.
"Now," said the professor, "are you not
much better pleased than if you had play
ed your intended trick."
"Dearest sir," answered the youth, "you
have taught me a lesson now that I will
never forget. I feel now tho truth of the
words which I never understood, "it's bet
ter to give than to receive."
We would never approach tho poor but
with tho wish to do them cood.

SPRING WHEAT.
Owing to the present prospective hig
price of wheat, any thing relating to its
culture aud increase, can be of interest to
our readers; henco we insert tho followin
letter from a Pennsylvania subscriber ;
Eds. Cultivator : Seeing enquiries made
of you in regard to tho spring wheat,
cheerfully send to you what I know of it
practically. Two years since, my brother
living in Illinois, sent me a barrel of flou
made from Rio spring wheat, which on tri
al I found to bo equal to over 'Double Ex
tra from selected wheat." This called my
attention to it, and the following winter,
on my return from a visit west, I brought
homo three bushels for seed, which I sow.
ed about tho middle of March, on a corn
field, without plowing , having first cutup
and burnt the stalks, and harrowed it twice
previous to sowing and twice afterwards
I sowed the three bushels on two and a
half acres, and harvested 47 bushels. On
having it flowered, 1 got 27 lbs to tho bush
el, and the bread was found to retain its
moisture longer than that made from win
tor wheat.
Tho reputation of spring wheat flour has
been greatly injured in eastern markets, by
the fact that until within a few years, tho
majority of the western mills have been
greatly defective ; and to avoid the unpop
ularity, my brother, who is a miller, writes
me they invariably brand all good spring
wheat flour as having been made from win
ter wheat.
If any of your subscribers should send
to their friends west, for this wheat, tell
them to gut it from the farmers before it is
mixed in market, and get cither tho Rio,
Italian or Canada Club, as the Black Sea
and Portland are quite inferior to thoso
above mentioned.

Lime Water in Bread Making.
In bread making the vinous fermenta
tion sometimes passes . into the acid, and
thus rendering the bread sour and disa
greeable Liebig has lately performed a
scries of experiments to improve the prep
aration of bread, from which he comes to
the conclusion that the only effective and
innocuous means of improving the qualities
of wheat and rye bread, is lime water. In
making dough, ho advises ono pint of clear
lime water to bo used for every five pounds
of flour.
The lime water is first added to the flour,
after which a sufficient quantity of common
water is added to work the whole into good
common dough, the leaven being fixed
with the water.
The lime water prevents the bread from
becoming sour, and is a healthy ingredient.
Lime water can be prepared by stirring
some quick lime in a vessel containing pure
cold water, then allowing tho sediment to
settle. The clear is then to be poured off,
and kept in bottles for use. No care is re
quired respecting tho quantity of lime, and
no more.
Those who uso saleratus in tho raising
O
of bread aro recommended to cease its use,
and employ pure baker's yeast and a little
lime water.
Our bones arc composed of the phosphate
of lime, and those who uso fine flour, re
quire for their health a littlo more lime
than is contained in their food. Cream of
tartar and carbonate of soda are far inferi
or to common yeast for making healthy
bread.
More cream of tartar, carbonate of soda,
and saleratus are used in Boston in making
bread, in ono day, than aro used in all Eu
ropo in ono year.
It is tho cxtravagaut use of these arti
cles that is the cause of our young men
and young women having decayed teeth.
In France, in the largo cities, no ono makes
what we in this country call family bread ;
henco tho government is very strict in
their laws regulating the manufacture of
bread by the bakers. Officers are appoint
ed to keep a strict watch over them and if
detected in nsing, or having in their ba
keries ammonia, saleratus, or carbonate of
soda, they are subject to a heavy fine.
Wo should havo such laws in this city;
then those of us who Lave to patronize the
bakers, would find the staff of life a much
better support than it is. Botton Trans
cript. ','..'
RW An agricultural friend, who return
ed from Franco lately informs us that tho
farmers thcro Lave discovered that by leav.
ing a portion of their potatoes intended for
seed, in tho ground during tho winter, and
replanting in the spring is a romedy
against the continuance of tho various dis
eases to which the potatoo of late years has
been subjected. It will be reccollectcd
that process was first recommended in this
country by Mr. Roberta. Wo havo tried
this experiment by leaving potatoes in the
ground last year, mulching them slightly
during the winter with a brush. When
we dug them in tho spring, wo found the
potatoes porfect and very solid, and have
planted them along side others, kcptlntho
cellar during winter. Tho growth of the
crop gives fair evidence of the superiority
of tho seed left in tie ground, and from pros
ont nppoarances, our experiment, lacked
by the result claimed by Robert and by tho
farmers, is likely to sustain the recommcn
dation of tho Farmers Club of the Ameri
can Institute for tho trial of this plan, ud,
those of tho Agricultural prcNT.who at
tempted to laugh it down at the time of its
publication will jbe- able to review their
jokes with soma jprofit to their readers.

The Effect of Cold on Farm Animals
The Peru (Illinois) Chronicle of tho 7th
iust., learns from a farmer who resides on
the south ; tide of the Illinois river, some
particulars of tho storm on the 20th ult
His cattle, thoiijrh they were enclosed
within a circle of straw stacks and hay
stacks, were so much suffocated with the
driving snow blast, that they refused to
cat. The snow was driven between the
hairs, and coming in contact with tho skin,
aud wait for a moment molted, then frozen,
until the whole covering of tho animals,
seemed one unbroken armor of ice, which
did not disappear on many for four days
after. The snow melting on their fore
heads and running down, foimcd huge
icicles that passed down over their face, and
reached far below the nose, giving "thoin
the appearance of the beast with tho len
horns in many instances tho broad sheets
of ice falling over, their eyes, blindfolded
them effectually. Their nostrils wore fil
led with frozen snow ttat Lad been driven
into them by tho violence of tho wind.
Ilia barn-yard chickens wore many of them
frozen, and what is singular, in nearly ev
ery caso they wcro fouud with their bills
as wide apart as they could bo sundered
and filled the mouth with solid ice. He
has driven his' teams and cattle over fen
ces, the snow being on a level with them,
and so compact as to sustain a heavy load.
The Collins Line Appropriation-
-Cor-
ruption of Congress.
Tho New York Tribune, in tho course
of a strong article denouncing the passage,
by Congress, of a law giving to tho Collins
Lino an immense lomts from the public
treasury forcibly says :
'(Now, if Congress had thrown away
this vast sum in a freak of generosity or
folly we might have regretted tho waste
of money, but we should not be called to
deplore a still more grave calamity. The
evil in this case is, that Congress was not
deluded it wes corrupted. Where the
the money camo from we do not legally
know we can only give a Yankee guess
but that this money passed this bill mon
ey not merely expended on borers and
whecdlers, and the usual oyster-cellar ap
pliances of lobby legislation but money
counted down into the palms of members
of Congress themselves this is as clear
as tho noon-day sun. Members who but a
few months age were breathing out
thrcatcnings and slaughter against the Col
lins job, havo now spoken, canvassed and
voted for the still more extravagant provi
sions of tho bill of this session.
...
"It gives us no pleasure to speak of
these things. We would gladly bury them
in oblivion, but for tho certainty that the
fearful precedent established in this case
will work immeasurable demoralization in
the national councils, and woo to the
American people. When members of Con
gress arc bought and sold like horses at
Tatteral's, or second-hand furniture in
Chatham-street, the miaria of corruption
will soon infect tho wholo atmosphere of
tho metropolis; speculators will lay their
plans for gettiug millions out of the treasu
ry, and will cooly calculate the amount re
quisite to buy their bill through tho two
Houses. Then any affectation of virtue
on tho part of members whoso votes aro to
be had, will only nccessiato an addition to
the aggregate to bo stolen, and no mom Dor
can vote for even a good measure, by which
individuals arc to bo benefitted, without
subjecting himself to somo taunt of the
universal rottenness. Men and brcathren!
think of these things !"
Who docs not applaud the President for
vetoing this corrupt project 1
Our President gets '25,000 a year.
The English Queen $2,000,000. The few
old revolutionary pensioners yet remaining
amongst us, get from eight to thirty dol
lars a month, because they fought for and

Royal Highness, tho Duchess of Kent,
gets $150,000 because she is the mother
of tho Queen; nud the Duchess of Glou
cester S00,000 per year, for being tho
Queen's aunt.
Prosperity and Adversity. Tho
virtue of prosperity is temperanco ; tho
virtuo of advertisity is fortitude. . Pros
perity is the blessing of the Old Testainont;
adversity is tho blessing of tho New, which
carrieth tho greater benediction and tho
clearer revelation of God's favor.. Yet,
even in tho Old Testament if you listen to
David's harp, you shall. Lear ;aa many
hcarscliko airs as carols; and the pencil
of the Holy Ghost Lath labored more in
describing tbo afflictions of Job than the
felicities of Solomon. Prosperity ; is not
without many fears and disasters ; and ad
vcrsity is not without comforte's hopes.
