On many a lic.irt wo deem ir.o: gay,

O'ef which the smiles of beauty stray.

And forms as brizht iif pninters dream,

And think that o'er that KiHfring throng,

A Good Illustrated of the "To Whom It
May Concern." Lstter.
The St Louis Republican hits off Mr.
Lincoln's famous 'To whom it may concorn'
letter to the southern comm:ssioners as fol -lows,
ilero is its illustration:
Jones an J Smith are quarrelsome neighbors.
Both see the folly of continued strife, and
desire pacification. Johnson, the friend of
Jot;cs, knowing this mutal desire, under
takes to fee if it can bo honorably consum
mated, and writes to Thompson, tho Iriend
of Smith , that he would like to consult about
it. Tbompsou goes to meet Johnson, and
they enter into correspondence as follows:
- . . " July 1, 1864.
"Joil-isoN Dear Sir: I understand that
you are authorixod by Jones to tender
terms of reconciliation to Smith. If true
I am d.'puted to put you in way of seeiug
him .
Yours, " Thompson."
To which Johnson replies:
July 2, 1861.
Thompson Dear Sir: I am not direct
ly authorized to offer tsrms, but I know
Jone's wishes perfectly, and hava no doubt
that I could at ouce get his authority to act.
T wish to see Smith'
Y'outs, Johnson."
This note is sent to Smith, who responds:
July 3, lSGt.
"Know all men by these presents, that if
Johnson ts directly authorized by Jones to
tender terms of reconcilatioc, and Jones
will agree to paint bis house white, and
burn up his son's mahognay furniture, ha
may live next door to me in peace, subject
to my rules. Smith."
Smith is Lincoln exactly; and his letter
is quite. sensible as Lincoln's.

Summer Sours. Physiological research
bas fully established the fact that acid pro
motes the separation of bile from tho blood;
which is then passed from the system,' thus
preventing d iseases of summer. All fevers
are'billious,' that is, the bilo is in the blood
Whatever is antagonistic to fever is 'cooling'
It is a common saying tint fruits are 'cool
ing, 'and also berries of every description;
It is because the aciditv which they con
tain aids in separating tho bile from the
blood, that is, aids in purifying tho blood.
Hence the great yearnings for greens and
lettuce and salads'in the early spring, those
being eaten with vinegar; hence, also, the
taste for something sour, for lemonade on
an attack of fovor. Bat this being the case,
it is easy to see that wo nullify tho good ef-
fects of fruits and berries in proportion as
we eat them with snrar. or even sweotlnrt thar.t Ond fnr thloinn? An 1mm mill

Saturday Night.
Once more the 6un goe3 down into the
western ocean of time to usher in a Sabbath
morning. Again has the wheel of the week
rolled around crushing the lifo out of many
a strongman and loving woman the heart
out of many a true lovo, who alotie, uncar
ed for and neglected, is left to wander over
tbo shoals and broken rocks on time'sshore
to die broken hearted and with no loving
hand to smooth the hair and drive the deatb
damp therefrom. Saturday night! Blessed
night of all its brethren. Prized night of
all the week loved corpse of all the six
which have been lain under tho place of
midnight. Night of respite from labor, and
communion with the heart. Night of re
pose for the mind, and the resuscitation of
'driven energies. Who of onr readers does

Falling Stars Expected. Those who
remember tho great meteoric display of
November 13'.bl833, will ba glad to learn
that a return is expected this fall. The most
important of all celestial phenomena has
been tho subject of much inquiry amoug
astronomers. It is found thatiu November
of every year tho number of falling stars is
moro numerous than at other periods, and
that there is a less considerable display in
August. The July' number of Siilman's
Journal contains the last of a series of arti
cles by 11. A. Newton on tho "November
Star shower " In these articles Prof. New
ton has traced tho histi.ry of this startling
phenomenon from the first record of its ap
pearance in A. D. 902, and has discussed at
length its most probable causa. Uo comes
to the conclusion that there is a ring of
small planets revolving arouud the sun;that
planet are distributed very unevenly in the
ring, there bjiu a small section of .the ring
whero tho bodies are numerous with a few
strajgk'rs scattered along the rest of its cir
cuit; that the earth passes through the ring
every year, and each year in a new place;
and that it passes through that part of. the
ring in which the planets are most numer
ous once in about thirty-three years, lie
further concludes that the period of the rev
olution of. this ring of. planets around the
sun may be calculated with very great ac
curacy, and that it is"351.Cl-i days a little
less than a year, lhe motion is retrograde,

the great shower: "If, then, r. shower occurs

The Widow Maker of the 19th Century

dency. Including the last batch of Ifalf a tniiriotf,
since tho war began to million seven hun
dred and ninety Ove thousand men have
been called into the field by the North, or by
the widow maker. And the crusade is.no
nearer over by fighting to-day than ft was?
four years since, and we veribly believe that
if the affair goes on for a year raorei on the
same plan as for tho past three the rebel
will force the North to terms. Seventy
five thousand th-ee months men were, in ther
estimation of our rulers and tyrants, full en
ough to subdue the rebellion. The differ
ence between the first call and the numbef
actually taken from their homes to ber
butchered and squandered by the flat-boat
tyrant and widow maker, is not greater than
the difference between the aforesaid nation
al grave digger and the least of all our form
er statesmen.

bave been by driblets fed into the mangling
machine smothered to death in cotton or
etunk to death between niggers not for the
salvation of the country but for the glorifi

marked his path with the blood and bones
of Kis betters at every step.

Strong Characters. Strength pf char
acter consists of to things power of will,
and power of 6elf restraint. It requires two
things therefore, for its existence-stron
feelings, and strong command over them.
Now, it is here, we make a great mistake.
Wo mistake strong feeling for strong char
acters. A man who bears all before! him before
whose frown domestics tremble.his children
quake because he bas his will obeyed and
his own way in all tilings, is called a strong?
man. The truth is that he is a weak man
It's his passion that is strong. Ha that is
mastered by them is weak. You" must
measure the strength of a man by the power
of the feeling be subdues, not by the power
of those which subdue him. And hence
composure is very often the highest resul.
of strength.
Did we never see a man receive a flagrant
insult, only growing a little pals, then re-
ply quickly? This is a man spiritually
strong. Or did we never" see a man in an
guish stand a3 if carved out of solid rock,
mastering himself? Or one bearing a hope
less daily trial remain silent and never tell
the world what cankered his home peace?
That is strength."
He who --with strong passions, remains
chaste, he who is keenly sensitive, with
many powers of indignation in him, can be
provoked, and yet restrain himself and for
give these are the strong meothe spiritdal
