A Reform in Contemplation.
The New York city board of education
has requested the superintendent to report
what he thinks of the expediency of keeping!
.school on Saturday, just as on other days of
the week. This opens up a new field for
discussion, in which the teachers und schol-
his will feel u lively interest. The question
arises why teachers should be let oil' with1
five davs work in st ven. when everybody else
is compelled to work ut least six. We re-

The great raciiic ra. road project of Rob t ,
J. Walker & Co., is likely to tall through '
jise about it. Before that do-.
after all the noist:
nation of Texas land could be obtained,
8300,000 must be deposited with the officers
of state as a pledge. This sum was to be
deposited by the 30th of October. A Texas
paper of the 21st of October says the funds
will not be forthcoming, and the entire
scheme, for the want thereof, will tumble to
the ground. 0. S. Journal.
A correspondent of the New York Herald
states that an expedition is to be organized
during the ensuing winter, the object of
which is to wage a war of extermination
gainst the Sioux Indians, and other hostile!
i tribes, who have been engaged in the late!
outrages on the plains. This force is to be
concentrated upon Jefferson Barracks, early
in the spring, so that active operations may
'commence without delay, as soon as the
j weal her may permit. The force will consist;
: of the. second regiment of infantry, three;
i companies of the second dragoons, and one!
(section of light battery, now stationed at
Ilia ton Rouge the whole under the command
of Col. Sumner. This force will also be:
joined bv all the men trait can be spared
i from 1 he. garrisons of the forts which are
through that region, and there is aj
probability lhat at least two companies oil
mounted volunteers, composed of frontier!
iii 'ii, will be added to the command. After!
j they have accomplished their duties in
i region, they will turn their attention to the!
Cumanches, and will act in co-operation1
with the forces now stationed upon the fron-
tiers of Texas.

A Country Home.
Oh ! gi?e me a home in the country wide,
A seat by the farmer's wood fireside,
"Where the fire burns bright,
On a frosty nilit,
AVhere the jest, the song and laugh are free
Oh ! the farmer's home is the home for me.
Oh ! trive me a home in the country wide,
AVhen the earth comes out us a blushing bride,
AVith her buds and flowers,
In the bright spring1 hours.
Her bridal son:.' ringing', from fresh-leaved trees,
And melody floats on the perfumed breeze.
In summer, a seat in a shady nook.
And close by the side of u cooling brook,
AVhere the violet grows.
Or the pale swamp rose.
Fainting and sick, 'neath the sun's scorching beam,
Dips her fair petals in the cording stream.
Oh ! give me a home in the country wide,
In the golden days of a farmer's pride,
AVhen his barns are tilled
From the fields he's tilled,
And he feels that his yearly task is done,
Smiling at w inter, he beckons him on.
A Desperate Game Cock. A remarkable
instance of the daring of a game cock lately
occurred at Melton, Mawbray, to a young
man named Hill. He was endeavoring to
catcli a hen, when a cock flew at him from
the wall, striking one of his spurs in his neck
just behind the ear, while with the other spur
he cut his left eyebrow nearly off. Hill was
knocked down, and from the great quantity
of blood which flowed, it was at first appre
hended that the jugular vein had been cut.

for supporting overloaded branches of trees :
When I find a forked tree that is liable
bring them together and wind them around

twelve months the ends can be cut off. This
brace will grow as fast as any other part of
the tree, and it is a perfect security from
splitting. I have them now of all sizes, and
I scarcely ever knew one to fail to grow."
