A GREAT COUNTRY.
It is estimated, by an article »n De Bow s
Review*, that the trade of Japan v\ iih this
country, if she opens her ports, will he woith
more than $200,000,000 annually. This is
more than the entire value of the ar.uual ex
ports ot the United Mates to Great Britain —
The population is put at 50.000.000 i he

LOOK BUSINESS.
A soulless landlord ac'ua.ly seized jpcr* a
poor widow’s hed at Cincinnati o.i the nth. as
a paitial payment for his rent. The unfortu
nate woman was observed standing on tue
pavement weeping, and questioned ns to «he
cause, w hen she related her story. A bvmvo
lent bystander paid the demand to the miser :v
landlord, who was worth twenty thousand
dollars in property,
It is a great and prevalent error, that ch i
dren may he left to run wild in every sort of
company and temptations for several years, ai, i
that it will then he time enough to hr?**

man would deal so with his garden or Jot, no
man would raise a colt or puppy on such a
principle. 'lake notice, parents— unless \on

Speaking of speed, said a wag the other day,
‘•1 reckon they travel some on the Hudson Riv
er Railroad. I stepped in tl.e car at Albany,
got fairly seated at Hudson, lighted my cigar
at Poughkeepsie, spit out of the window at
Peekville, and hit a man aiSing Sing. The
telegraph poles looked like a close picket
fence, and, on going to the tear ot the tra.n, 1
found that we had a rope walk and ten-pm al

straight out like the tail of a kite, without
touching the track—and were Used inert**) to
