LAND POOR. BY ROBERT ROLLINS. I've had .another offer, wife a forty more. .... Of high and dry rich prairie land, as level as a floor; . , I tbousrht I'd wait and see yon list, as lawyer Whiting said, To tell how things willturn out best, a wo man is ahead. And when this lot is paid for, and we hare got the deed, 111 say that I am satisfied ;'.it's.all the. land we need. And next we'll see about tbe yard, and fix tbe house up some. And manage in the coarse of time to have a better home. . , . WIFE. There to no use or talking, Charles yon buy that forty more. And we'll go scrimping all onr lives, and al wavs be loaa poor. For thirty years we've tugged and suved, de nying baif onr aeeds. While all we have to show for it is tax rtAipU I'd sell tbeland, if it were mine, 'and have a better home. With broad, light rooms to front the 'street, and take life as it come. saBsa If .we could live as others live, and have what others do, We'd live a great deal pleasanter, and have a pleaty.ktoo. as. WhileVrthers have amusement, and luxury and books, Just think bow stingy we have lived, and how this old place looks! That lother farm you bought of Wells, that took somanv years Of clearing np and fencing in, has cost me many tears. . Yes, Charles, Indeed. I've thought of it a bun dled times or more. And wondered if it really paid to always be land poor! If we had built a oozy house and made a hap py home. Our children, once so dear to ns, had never learned to roam. I grieve to think of wasted weeks, and years, and months, aad days. While for it all we never yet have had one word of praise. Men call os rich, but we are poor would we not freely give The land, with all its fixtures, for a better way to live? Don't think I'm blaming you. dear Charles, you're not a whit to bl lame: I've pitied yon these many yean, to see'you It's just the way we staited out, onr plant too tirefl anu lamex We've worn the cream of life away, to leave too much when dead! Tis putting of enjoyment long after we en : joy And after all too much of wealth seems useless as'a toy Although we've learned, alas, too late! what all mast learn at last. Our brightest earthly happiness is buried in tne pass.. That life is short and fall of care, the end to always ntrit. We seldom half begin to live before we're doomed to die. Were I to start my life agaia, I'd mark each separate day. And never let a single one pass unenjoyed away. If there were things to envy, I'd have them uow and then. And have a home that waa a home, and not a I'd sell some land if it were mine, and fit np well the rest, I've always thought, and think so yet mail care or pen. fisrmt stM swrcsa ars new THE PRIEST'S STORY. BY FRANCES HENSHAW BADEN. Clasp me a little longeron the brink Of fate! while I can feci thy dear caress; And let It mitigate thy woe's excess. That thon hast been to me all tenderness. —CAMPBELL. of I to to be The magnificent steamer Magnolia was just landing- her passengers on one oriu"epIers 6 ine CMscSat " tlty.t' Among the crowd leaving the deck might be seen a fine looking middle aged man, on whose arm rested a young girl.' Placing his fair companion in the carriage waiting, he turned and spoke to the driver: " Do you see that priest walking just ahead there? I want yon to keep in sight of him. ' His face is strangely fa miliar. Do you know who be is, dri ver?" "Ah, faith! and it's myself that's blessed with the knowing of him! It's Father Jerome, sure ; and may the Lord shower blessings on his holy head ! It's all the poor and miserable that knows Father Jerome's iroodness!" answered the son of Erin. "If it were not for those priestly robes, I would say it was my old friend and class-mate, Charley Mayo. Keep a little behind him, driver; I want to get a better chance of watching him." Slowlv the carriage rolled on. In tently its occupant watched the rever end father. Tnrning to his companion, he said : "I cannot be mistaken. That priest is surely my friend; and notwithstand ing his robes would contradict it, I shall speak and claim him as such." And tapping at the window, he called to the driver to stop; and opening the door, stepped from the carriage, order ins it to wait there. He hurried on, and overtaking the priest, said : .? Stop, my friend ! Although twenty- five years have passed since I saw you. I cannot fail to recognize my dear friend ; Mayo you surely are." And clasping the band of the priest, he shook it long and warmly. "You are right, Lovering. I am he the world once knew as Charles Mayo." and a look of deep sorrow overspread ie reverend father's face. "Why do I see you thus? Why in these" robes? Tis strange that your face should be the first to meet my eye ! Ton remember the last time we met: your wedding-night.' I stood beside you. Where is your wife? Have you children? Oh, tell me, dear old friend, what means tins sad lace auu mien ? "Hava mercy, and recall not the past! My once wife Is no longer of this world. I have no children save those of the Church.. Remember no more Charles Mayo, but know Father Jerome, who gladly claims your friendship !" The decided words, the sorrowful manner, were not to be resisted. ; " Be it as you will. Of course I have no right to seek any knowledge you are not willing to impart. I shall be in the city but a few days. I've brought my only child, my motherless girl, to make a visit to her relatives. I shall leave her here for a time, and then return to my business in London. Do let me see you as much as possible while here ?" "You will find nie at the college from two until five. I shall always be hap py to see you," answered Father Je rome. ."To-morrow, then, I shall be with yon, and bring my daughter to see you. Good-bye." . The friends parted, to meet again many times at the priest's apartments. But during none of these meetings could Mr. Lovering penetrate one step back iu the past, or draw one word from his old friend in explanation of the mystery surrounding him. At last, on one occasion, a few days previous to Mr. Lovering's departure from the city, Father Jerome said : " My friend, I have noticed what a very sad face your daughter has. I grieve to see one so young seem so sor rowful. Indeed her expression at timet seems almost hopeless. She does not seem in poor health. What Is It? The loss of her mother?" "No, no; neither bad health, nor her mother's loss. It is a love affair. I will tell you. Yoa see she is beautiful, and, of course, has had many admirers; the most persistent and devoted one being an Englishman, a very worthy young man, and of noble birth younglord. She has givea her heart to him; and nothing I can do or say wiU have any effect to change her. I've told them both I never would consent to a union between them. So I have brought her over to visit her mother's relatives, ho ping absence may work a favorable change over her. "I never will consent to my daugh ter's marrying any but one of my own countrymen. I love my countrymen. I love my country and al) her sons, and none other will I call mine, of noble birth though they may be. Another reason: I have other views for her. A high position here she has the oppor tunity of holding, and I would almost as soon see her " Dead !" asked the priest In a hollow almost frightful tone, "as to thwart your wishes?" he continued. " Well, not exactly that perhaps, but" "Stop! I will tell yon a story, from which you may profit," said the priest. " Less than ten years ago, In. this State, lived a man high in social and po litical position, of very decided opinion and strong prejudice. He had no kind ly feeling toward any man adverse to his way of thinking. His time, his money, were all devoted to the advance ment of his political views. In the same legislative body with himself was a young man one of flue mind, bril liant talents, and swiftly rising career belonging to the opposite side of pol itics. The older man beheld In the young one the probable check to his own advancement. He hated him for his opinions; he was jealous of his favor with the people. They were thrown much together in the social cir cle, young Hastings' society being cour ted, by the first families of the State. In one of these he met the daughter of the man whose rival he was. He soon learned to love her, and sought the fa ther to obtain permission to offer her his band. Feeling confident in his own worthiness, his heart was buoyant with bright anticipations. Judge of his sur prise to be met with absolute rudeness, and a firm, decided refusal; giving him no explanation or reason, save that such a union was very objectionable, and never would be listened to with any favor. In vain Hastings pleaded, and finally departed, feeling sure that to political prejudice alone he owed his re jection. The father then sought bis daughter, his only child, and command ed her to dismiss from her mind any idea of young Hastings ever being niore than a mere acquaintance. Deat to all her entreaties, regardless of his wife's earnest solicitations for their child's happiness, he continued. Daily he saw the unmistakable signs of the deep sor row hewas caus!ng.He knew be was crushing the -light from nut that TH!nIC heart, hitherto so bright and joyous, The sunshine of his home he saw grad ually fading beneath his harsh treat ment, yet there came not one thought of relenting one pang of remorse. "Poor child! she was subjected to the severest scrutiny; every action watched, kept almost a prisoner, for fear she might meet her lover while visiting her friends. Every chance which might either bring hope or com fort was guarded against. The father's will was the law of the whole planta tion ; no one dared to oppose or evade it " Weeks passing on brought the birth day of the poor girl, eighteen years only, and life without one hope for her ! 'Twas the father's custom to bestow some boon, or gratify any wish his daughter might desire on the day. . , " The hours wore on, and she came not as she was wont, to place her arms round her father's neck and whisper her wish. " For the first time since her infant tongue could lisp, "Papa, please," he missed the joy of blessing and making his child happy, Hard and unyielding as he was, this silence was keenly felt, and spoke -more forcibly to the father's heart than all the words of entreaty, and the tears so oiten stealing quietly down the pale cheeks. Yet he could not relent. While brooding over this, a servant came in and placed the papers and letters from the post-office before him The quick eye of Rose, his child, caught what had not then met his, and springing forward and clasping her arms around him, she cried : " Papa, my birthday wish ! That let ter, give it me ph, do ?" Looking at the one she was pointing to, he beheld inscribed, in a clear, man ly hand, his daughter's name. Taking It up and examining the post-mark, he found it was from the neighboring city. Surmising the author, he said: " Do you know from whom it is f " " Oh, yes! Give It to me, papa. Grant me this boon to-day ! " Rose, anything else, but this I can not Banish that man from your mind and heart, and be my own bright, lov ing girl again. We will go and travel, little one, and you will soon forget this cloud," said her-father, " No, no, papa ! Give me time, papa. Perhaps he may be going away, and that letter is to say good-by. Oh, give me some little comfort for his absence ! Let me have that to read first, and I will return it to you. Yon may see all he savs .' she nleaded. r ooiisn gin : iuw wumu umg w this comparative stranger against your parent's will! Yon would resign the love of years for his ! You should have more confidence in the judgment of your father, believing he seeks your happiness. Say no more; you cannot have this letter." Papa, have mercy! Remember your own youhg love. As my mother loved you, so love I Earnest Hastings. With perfect confidence in his worth! ness, I would cling to him to the end of life. Y'ou may force me to give him up. but I will never cease to love him until I cease to live. Papa, once more I en treat you ; will you give me my letter ?' " No, a thousand times no !" answer ed the hard, cruel man The father's determined spirit was it work In the hitherto gentle, submissive child, rendered desperate by the con tinned, unyielding tyranny. She sprang forward, nnd snatched from his hand the coveted letter, saying, "Then, heav en forgive me, but I will have it!" she fled, with deer-like swiftness, from his presence Bewildered, completely stunned ill' deed, at the unexpected action, It was some time belore her father could re cover himself too late to overtake and prevent ber reading the letter. There was no more loving intercourse then between the father and child. Weeks more rolled on, and from his servant he heard of clandestine meet ings between the lovers. A little while more, and there came a hint of a poss ible elopement. Sending for his daughter, he told her of what had come to his knowledge, and concluded by warning her that he should keep a watch himself, and if finding any one trespassing on, or hov ering around his premises, he should regard him as a robbermd deal with him as such ; and if she had any regard for her lover's life, she had better let him know what danger he might be iu ! A look of great terror passed over the sad face, and she fled from the sight of the violent, unnatural father. That night he began his watch, fully determined to discover tbe truth of the reports he had heard. He concealed himself among the shrubbery near his child's window. Believing her safe in her room, he expected most likely Hast ings would come, and by some well- known signal bring her to the window. He had not very long to wait. The moonhad,been shining very brightly, but just then had passed behind a cloud, but lending still light enough for him to discover a figure wrapped in a long cloak and wearing a cap, stealing cau tiously along in the direction of where be was concealed. The demon's power was over him. Thoughtless of every thing else bnt his hate for man he be lieved before him, he drew his revol ver and fired. Tbe loud report, a dy ing shriek, a woman's voice, filled the father's ears. Servants, with lights, rushed affrighted to the scene. The miserable, wretched man rushed for ward to behold " Here a deep groan escaped the priest's lips. His whole frame was convulsed by the most violent emotions. Rising, he paced the' room for some moments, then sank again into his seat, and hoarsely whispered : "His child! the flower that bad been fading for months under his harsh treatment, now dying before him by Us hand!" . Thank God 'tis I, not Earn est," came in broken words between tne gasps for breath. "1 went to warn im " Catching her in his arms, the terror- stricken father was about bearing her in the house, when hurried steps were heard, and another figure appeared on that terrible scene Earnest Hastings. Tbe dying eye brightened, and with a feeble effort to raise her arms, she whis pered : " Take me, Earnest." The murderer made no attempt to re sist, but yielded her to the arms wait ing to receive her, standing appalled by the result of his hatred, his vindictive ljea!ousyjae.c.oyi'.ere.dbejeath . the eye of the yonng man, nasiung wua witn terror and grief upon him. ' She was sinking rapidly: Once more ber lips essayed to speak, and we caught the words, "Earnest papa forgive And with nestling motion closer to his bosom, she laid his In death!" Mr. Lovering was' much affected by the sad story he had heard, rendered far more oppressive by the deep emotion of Father Jerome. After a few mo ments' silence, he asked : Tell me. What of her miserable fa ther?' Was there nothing done with him?" " Nothing by law. A simple verdict, Accidental death.' ' But remorse and grief work a surer, a more dreadful pun ishment." " . t " Where now are the lover, father, and mother? Tell me all," said Mr. Lovering. .

A few days after this interview, a- ther Jerome received another visit from his old friend. This time his daughter was with him. With a beaming face, she came quickly up to the priest, and seizing his hand, she pressed it to her lips, saying : " Heaven bless you, dear father, as you have blest me." " Yes, my dear friend, we have come to bid you good-bye.

A royal tiger lily. With snots of purple and gold. And a heart like a jeweled chalice, The fragrant dew to hold. Without the blackbird whistled. High up In the old roof-trees. And to and fro at the window The red rose rocked her bees; And the wee pink lists of baby Were never a moment still. Snatching at shine and shadow That danced at the lattice-sill . Ah me! in a darkened chamber. With the sunshine shut away. Through tears that fell like bitter rain. We measured the baby to-dav, And the little bare feet that were dimpled And sweet as a budding rose. Lav side by side together In the hush of a long repose. Up from the dainty pillow. White as the risen dawa, A fair little face lay smiling With the light of heaven thereon; And the dear little hands, like rose leaves Dropped from the rose, lay still. Never to catch at the sunshine That crept to the shrouded sill. We measured the sleeping baby With ribbons white as snow, For the shining rosewood casket That waited liim below. And out of darkened chamber We went with a childless moan; For to the height of the sinless angels Our dear little one had grown. One-Dollar Judges. To-day I saw a friend who has lived here many years, and was helped out of several little difficulties by A., the former vice-consul. He was very clev er, and knew how to manage the Judge; which seems to be the key of the whole administration of Roman law. My friend said he had a servant whom he caught stealing, and turned him out ol the house. Tbe servant brought a suit against the. master for a month's wages. He sent for A., who said he would see the business settled. He went to the judge, and made his statement, at tbe same time presenting his honor with a five-franc'piece "Make yourself easy.'said the judge, "I will attend to the matter." The complainant was told to go about his business; and if he was ever caught trying to cheat foreigners again, he would be sent to prison. Now, this was a simple and ef fective method. A little oil applied to the wheels of justice, the car moves on, and your business is done. Nothing more is required. Unfortunately, my prejudices are so fixed, that I could not consent to bribe a judge or even a crim inal; and if that skillful Vice-Consul A., had not gone to that other world, where it may be hoped justice is both swift and accurate, he could not be of use to me. Jan. 12. A bitter cold morning is this in Rome; and it is early work to be at the judge's house at nine o'clock : but we do it, and, as might be expected, are kept waiting an hour or more. The house is very cold with brick floors; and we sit shivering'. On the other side of the room are ranged four or five witnesses for the other side. After waiting an hour and a half, M. is called into the other room, where she finds the judge in his dressing-gown arid slippers, also the two lawyers. I do not bear what is going on there, but in distinct murmurs varied by an occasion al laugh. They keep her about two hours to tell .what she knows of the agreement. - When she comes out she looks tired but amused. Says after she bad told all she knew, and they had written It down, they asked her to swear to It. "Read it over to me first I wish to know what I am swearing to. Again she made them read it, that she might be sure. "You are very careful,"1 said the judge. "I wish all witnesses were as careful to know what they are swearing to." 'Yes," said M. "it is a serious thing to s wear falsely ; and I do not wish to be in danger of do ing it In my country, a witness who swears falsely is liable to be sent to prison , for twenty years." What! twenty years, imprisonment for false swearing only!" The judge was as tonished; the lawyers held up their hands in amazement at such tyranny practiced in a free country. Indeed, the judge became more and more agi tated tbe more he considered this phe nomenon, till M.thought he might have A comulso, which is a common termina tion of too much excitement among this sensitive people. But the examin ation of this witness ended without such a catastrophe. On the whole, the court seemed never to tire of asking questions of so intelligent and lively a witness; and I think they prolonged her examination unnecessarily. Old and New. Fattening Women for the Matrimonial Market. Throughout the interior of Africa, and indeed in some parts of Asia, woman is prized for fatness. Beauty is associated with excessive obesity; and such being tbe public sentiment, moth ers seasonably commence a system of dietetic treatment that makes their daughters irresistible. Colonel Keat- ing's travels give an account of the pro cess of fatting a young woman for a Tunis market As soon as betrothed, she is cooped np in a small room, with shackles on ber ankles. If her proprie tor has lost a wife by death or divorced one, their anklets are sent forward for the new matrimonial candidate. When she has attained a desirable size, indi cated by filling the pattern rings she is carried In triumph to her new home. The preparation of food that actually produces that coveted dimensson a mountain of fatness is called drough, made of seeds of a vegetable peculiar to the country. Some positively die from excesseve fatness in an effort to surpass in that bewitching accomplishment ri val candidates for matrimonial positions These famous mortals are not the poor girls. They are the higher orders in society, and therefore are ambitions, like fashionables iu some civilized States of securing an elevated position with a rich husband. Bruce.tlie traveler, saw a great queen In Africa, a gem of a woman the envy of hoc sex and wife-hnnters, who weighed over four hundred. It is stated that during the iost year 2,000 pounds of walnut kernels were shipped from Broadway depot, .Rock ingham county, Virginia. , Ihey sold in Baltimore market at thirty cents per pound, bringing $000. These walnut kernels were gathered mainly by poor children who had no other way In whicii to turn an honest penny. They are used in making candy. The great fire in New York, in 1S35, was only a $20,000,000 atiair. The Scriptures have been translated into 184 languages and dialects. Market. THE SCRIPTURES. Printers Errors in the English Bible. The errors of the foreign editions of the Dutch and Scotch Bible are'almost innumerable. In a black-letter testa ment of 16C4, printed at either Edin burg or in Holland, a mistake may be met with In nearly every column. In England itself a vigorous attempt to In sure correction was made by tbe restric tion of the right of publishing Bibles to the King's printers; and no more cur ious' proof of the perpetuity of English usages could be found that in the his tory of this monopoly. The house of Christopher Baker, to which the patent was granted in 1577 went on steadily printing it until 1709. The right was held for sixty years by Thomas Baskett and purchased in 1769 by Charles Eyre, whose representatives, Messrs, Eyre & Spotxiswoods, continue a succession which lias been unbroken since 1765. But the monoply failed in securing the various editions from even ludicrous and profane blunders. In one of the earlier issues, the second folio of 1611 in which tbe mistakes of the first were supposed to have been corrected,we find Then cometh Judes with them into place called Gethsemane. A folio of 1781 has received its name of the Vine ear Bible, from a misprint in the head ing of the parable of the Vineyard. In two quartos of the present century we are told that tbe blast of the teribie one is as a stone against the wall, and that the "dogs liked his blood." We may perhaps expect a little irony in the com positor, of 1838 (he may have been an acquaintance of Milton's) who makes the heathen vex the Israelites, not with their "wiles," but with their "wives," or in the printer of 1640, who sub stituted "rulers in the wilderness" tor "mules." But the real mischief of such blun ders lay in their tendency to perpetua tion. The omission in the first folio of two important words in the fifth chap ter of St. John's First Epistle is still per petuated in our prayer-books, though it has been corrected in the text of our Bibles. "Strain at a gnat" was proba bly a typographical blunder in the first issues of King Jamas' Bible for the "strain out" of the Bishops and Gene van versions; but it remains to this day. So a misprint in the First Epis tle to Timothy, which originated at Cambridge about 1629, went on uncor rected after edition , till 1803. Tbe fine of 3,000 Inflicted by the Star Chamber on Baxter, for his omission of the pro hibitory "not" in the Seventh Com mandment is a well-known instance the fruitless efforts to obtain correctness the fine, however, as we hear. from Mr. Loftie, dwindles on investigation to 300, -and this again is compounded for by the presentation of a set of Greek types to one of the universities. Not was free trade more conductw-te-l correctness than monopoly. The great rebellion for a time threw open the mar ket, but the popular editions of Field and Hill were disfigured with a greater number of blunders than had appeared before. Their defects are mercilessly exposed iu a rare tract by Mr. Kel bourne, which Mr. Loftie has reprinted in the preface. Besides the great errors, however, which we have noticed, we fiud a great number of smaller modifi cations going on in spelling and punc tuation. During the first century which is included in Mr. Loftte's list, the spell ing of no two editions is the same. In such a change as of "sometimes" for "sometime," spelling becomes an im portant organ of revision. "We still," says Mr. Loftie, "have such words as "astonied," "throughly," "pransings," scope," although the authority by which they are retained has no more existence in reality than that by which such words as "shamefastness" or un- possible were altered. Another Victim. A Butler county man has been victi mized by accepting, as he supposed, an agency for patent roofing. He finds now that the agreement he signed is note for $130. He spends at least four dollars advertising that he will not pay the note. If he had spent two dollars in paying for the county paper and then read it, be need not have been victimiz ed. Now he will probably have to pay the note. All kinds of swindlers are operating through the county, and we would warn our readers to keep clear of them. Do not sign your name any paper without thoroughly under standing its contents. If a man wants to sell you, for a trifling sum, a receipt or a patent for making your fortune, to sell you goods at less than cost, set him down for a swindler, and Tack off the premises, if you are able. A German poet has lately written touching poem, in which the hero represented as devoured by alligators under a palm tree ou the shore of Lake Erie. The heroine hears of the dread ful fate of her lover down in the glades of Florida, near the banks of Lake Su perior, where she Is living, and rushes down South to Lake Erie, and lays wait for that crocodile, captures him, cuts him open, extracts the Dones her dead lover, purchases a rich cofllu, and has him interred iu magnificent style in Greenwood Cemetery, in New York, iu the State of St. Louis. Tbe poem is too affecting. New Year's Day, according to the Chinese calendar, comes on the 38th January, and the Celestials of San Fran Cisco celebrated It after their own home fashion. The wealthy traders walked about attired in long silk gowns, and the women bad their hair dressed in most gorgeous style. The Chinese restaurants and stores on Dupont and Sac ramento streets, were visited by many American ladies and gentlemen, whom delicacies were politely offered Business was entirely suspended and the time devoted to merry-making. The next day was sacred to dinner parties. and, it Is estimated, to a regular debauch of opium smoking. It is rather expensive to tell a town clerk of Massachusetts a young lady older than she really is, besides being peculiarly harrowing to the feelings the lady herself. There was a young man who wanted to marry a young miss of fourteen. He told the clerk she was sixteen, and for that little act of imagination he waa fined $500. A poetic Hibernian explains that love is commonly spoken of as a "flame' because It's a tinder sentiment. Holmes Co.

That regarding births is Important, in asmuch as it rather upsets tbe theory that the original or native stock is dy ing out of the country. Though the tables are reserved for ths second vol ume of the report, we are assured that they will show that the calculations re garding this matter, as generally made, are very erroneous. It would seem that.more children are born In December, Jauuary, February, March, April and May than In any oth er months ofthe year,theJpreponder ance being rather in favor ofTMarch of all tbe months. The table of illiteracy are very interesting.

In regard to churches, we find that we have 74,459 church organizations, and 63,000 church edifices, with proper ty valued at $354,483,581. Of the relig ious bodies the Methodists take the lead, having over 21,000 church edifices, and property valued at $59,354,121.
