A Flett tike Vrinrr of M wfee to 'lie rants' ToMtlm. III the southwestern corner of Bombay bland the low plain swells up rather suddenly into a lull of two hundred feet hitfh, from the top of which the whole city, and ainioet the whole island are vis ible to the north anil cat, ami to the west and south the wide xea. It i a spot which, without a doubt, presents the 6uet view of what had been called one f the choicest scenes of the world, and might well, therefore, have lieen se lected for the gayest villa of the richest inhabitants; but it Ls a tact that, till the prince came to India, no European, except it may have been by stealth, had set loot npon it. None, certainly, were privileged to examine this stiange place, and if any came, which may well be doubted, at most they could but cast a furtive glance around them, and steal away again. Two centuries have passed since, in this then most desolate and savage spot, a gray tower was raised, no sign of life or man's habitation, hut an abode of death, and so well called the Tower of Si lence. As time went on four other tow ers were raised around the first, the Parses, to whom these towers belonged, grew in wealth and influence, the whole hill became theirs, and a high encircling wall with iron gates barred access to any itnt those of their own nation. Up to the Prince of AValcs visit I do not only say that no stranger has visited the spot: I say more that no one ever expected to see it. The Parses are not a proselytiz ing sect ; they would not accept prose lytes though they came to them volunta rily. There is a veil of mystery and mysticism over all that the Parses do, and they do not love to talk with strangers about their sacred things. Next to the strangeness of the prince's visit it self the strangest thing which has hap pened during that visit is the eay way in which the curtain which has so long been held up by the Parses around their tombs has been dropped by them. The prince wished to see the Towers of Silence, Kir Bartle r rere wrote to the governing body of the Parses that the prince wished it, and lo! it was done. It maybe quite true that the fire worship- era had found that the detractors had made nsc of the mystery in which they shrouded their funeral rites to invent many calumnies against them, but still I do not think that a desire to set them selves right with the world would alone nave induced them to raise the veil. It would never have been put aside but for the prince's wish toEjiare it removed, and so, if his visit should lave no other re sult, it will have in this brought about one ef the most curious changes that In dia has witnessed. The thing came about so suddenlv that the secretarv of the Pcrses found himself, so he told me, standing under the wall of the principal Tower of Silence, close to the vast stone ulab on which the corpses are deposited, explaining for a model the interior econ omy of the structure to his royal high ness and a group of his suite before be had time to prepare his dress or thoughts for the occasion. You may ascend the hill of the Towers f Silence by a long succession of ter races and flights of steps from the south, or you drive in by a carriage road at the northern entrance, and read as you pass the gate the inscription, which tells you that the costly road was made at the ex pease of the son of the first baronet, Sir Jamshidje, in honor of his Cither's mem ory. After driving a quarter of si mile you proceed on foot up a long, rocky axcent till you come to a gate with the warning, " None but Perses may enter !" But the prince had unsealed the en . tesc and, in company with the cour teous secretary- f the Parse governing committee, I went in, and found a little way on my right a stone chapel or house of prayer, where the Parses who attend the funerals perform their devotions. From this spot there is a roost en chanting and unequalled view over Bombay, which every European visitor should see if he can. While I sat here a model of a Tower of t-i!e:ice was brought and explained to me; the same identical model which had interested the prince, and the explanation was given by the same exposition. As I listened two corpses, one of which w:w that of a i i . i,mt,i, .... , i. .. OIUUCU, ui pi :air ... uiuugu t in; rocky ascent, each followed by about one hundred Parses, in while garments. The biers were carried by four men, and two others followed, who alone are al lowed to enter the towers. The Parses ' who walked in the procession had their garments linked two-and-two, and this had a mvstic meaning. The towers are circular, and are so well built that the oldest has stood for 200 years without requiring to be re paired. They are formed of hure stone Mali, well cemented together, and the largest eo-t 30,000. If it may le assumed that the four other towers cost on an average 20.000 each, we should have a tenth of a million invested in these buildings alone. Add that Hir Jamshidje gave 100,000 j square yards of land and defrayed the j expenses of a road, and some idea may I be formed of the cost of the whole cem etery. In the circular external wall j there is but one atw rttire, about five and a half feet square and thirteen feet ! from the ground, and to thi3 the ear- 1 Hereof the dead a:-rrml by a flij-ht of Heps, and there take in the corpse. The ' outside wall is from 2- to 40 lent high, I according to the inequalities of the ! ground on which the tower is built. In side is a circular platform, depressed gradually toward th renter, where, is a wall of about ten feet in diameter. The surface of the platform consists of fluted j groove lairlout in three series, with circu lar path surronndingeachseries, to which communication obtained by a straight path leading from the aperture in the outer well to the well in the center of the tower. Thi iftraight path inter sects the circular para, ami is nlout two and a luilf feet lfJ and 'hen three feet. The corpses are deposited in the grooves, those of men occupying the first series, those of women the second series, and those of children the third. All the Uwlies are absolutely nude, to fulfill the saying, ".Naked came I into the world, and naked shall I go forth ;" and iu half an hour from the time they are put in the grooves every particle of flesh is stripped from the bones by numerous vultures that inhabit the spot. The skeleton is left to blench in win and wind till it becomes quite dry. Two carriers of the dead then enter with gloves on their hands ami provided with !ags. with which tluy carry the bones to the central well, where they are east and crumble into dust. There are lierforH tioiw in the wall of the well, through which any moisture caused by rain or otherwise p:isscs and dc-rends into two drains at the bottom of the building, where it passes through charcoal, and s-o becomes disinfected ami imxlorus liefore it reaches the ra. There is a ladder in the well by which the carriers of the dead descend when it is necessary to clear the perforations from obstructions. The dust in the well accumulates so slowly that in forty years during which the largest tower has been used it has risen only five feet. -The origin f the whole practice is no doubt the veneration with which the Parses regard the elements. 1'ire is too pUrC lO Of IHJUUHSl WS COlltlllltt.11111 to the flames. Water is almost i equally I Hence this strange svstem has been vented, by which it is supposed none of the impurities of the corpse can efTect the elements, at all events directly. And everything that can Ije thought of is done to dispel the gloomy thoughts which some parts of the process natural ly engender. The chapels are situated in a beautiful garden, where those who attend the funeral may sit and enjoy the beauty of flowers and flowering shrubs. Those who deposit the corpses in the towers go through a purification, and the garments they wear when in the Tower of Silence are put away iu another tower erected for the sole purpose of receiving them, and there they smoulder away. THE I'XITED STATES tl-EET. The United States home fleet, iron clads and all, is centering at Port Koyal. This movement, a Washington letter says, is in pursuance of a general plan of the secretary ol the navy to make that place the headquarters of the North At- lauticstation, as it presents many ad van- tagesover any other port on the Atlantic const. The writer adds : The climate is very healthful, and the harbor oners every facility for the exer cise of naval tactics, so that the service can lie kept in thorough discipline. On one occasion only during the late war was the yellow fever there, and then for only a very brief period, while at Key West, the former headquarters of the station, it was often epidemic and caused the vessels at that place nearly every summer to be ordered to Portsmouth, Jf. H.,or some other northern port where supplies, repairs, etc., could be furnished without delay. The geographical posi tion of Port Royal makes it the central point for the North Atlantic station, and vessels rendezvoused there can reach Cuban waters and the gulf, where our in terests most need to be looked after, within forty-eight hours. It is the poli cy of the secretary of the navy to make our home, squadron larger than any of those abroad, because he believes in be ing prepared for any emergency which may arise out of the present difficulties on the island of Cuba. While there is no official announcement in regard to the condition of affairs between this country and Spain, it is believed in well informed circles that the uncertain tenure which Spain has upon that Island may cause that government to become involved in a difficulty with the United States when it sees that it can no longer hold the island and then parts with it as a matter of necessity. Another reason why ves sels will be ordered to Port Royal from northern rivers and harbors where they have been laid up is to free them from the ice during the approaching winter. In case of any difficulties arising it would not do to have these vessels frozen up at League island or some other north ern port, where they could be of no ser vice; hence the secretary deems it ad visable to have them at Port Royal, where there is no danger of an ice block ade, and in case of emergency they could be used with effect. . S.4U KK1IIT. There is no sadder sight in New York than that witnessed at the station houses about six o'clock in the evening. There are thirty station heuses in the city. Around these gather at six o'clock the houseless, homeless, destitute people of the city. They number from one hun dred to two hundred persons at each station. These are old and young, women and children, tramps and respec table people out of employment. They ask a night's lodging, and must have it or perish. One reason why tramps are so numerous in the country is that thou uuirls aroxmt of employ, many of whom are ashamed to lie seen begging in the city, and the impression prevails that people are more charitable in the coun try than in New York. It is the cus tom of many of the restaurants, at the j close of the day's business, to gather up the fragment remaining and hand them out to the poor on the sidewalk. Ixing , lines of suffering, hungry, wretched and j halt-clad creatures stand in patient wait- j ing by the hour for their turn. Some- j times the line will extend two or three j blocks. The women are wretched look- ! ing, and nearly every one has a babe in j her arms. The basket -'eiierallv irives I out before half the line is su pi.lied, and j the sorrowing hungry ones are turned j away empty. . The Gold Yield. The mines in the I states and territories west of the Mis- i souri river, including British Columbia ! and the west coast of Mexico, show a f yield of 80,889,0:i7 during the preM-nt ' year, being an excess of nearly ?i;,f.00,000 ' over that of last year. Nevada. Colo- i rado, Mexico, Oregon, British Columbia, i Montana, and Arizona increased. Cali 1'iruia, Idaho, I'tah and WaHuinjrlon de treanfd. The decrease in California was due to want of water. The increase iu Colorado and Nevada was very notable. The latter yields more than one-half the ; whole. The present prospect of the ! yield nest year indicates that it will reach $96,000,000, of which Nevada will '. contribute $.50,000,00). Wells, Fargo ' & Co. carried over $23,500,000 of gold i dust and bullion and over $11,000,0M of ' silver bullion. The other $16,000,000 J was in ores and hace bullion. i . . me jxjnuon ijincet says mat tne i narKesi oiots are near the end ol Hie habit of secret druukenneHS in becjujiiig i hone', and if the prophecy faib not, win very common auuiiig the Loyt t the j ter will vciirV the aayinjj of coniing in F.ngli-h public .hjoIii. II ELLS. Till- f luirl-m IHrkrnx .Hm.c Thrill ill Ilia Eil'tiulli. As for Pickens' marriage bells, he can marry none of his characters without a great deal of ringing. Mark how he in sists on theliells lieinir excellent ctmpuny. Mr. Pickwick's excited reveries on the night of the discovery of the famous Iiill-S'tiimpiaii sculpture are dissipated i by the church bell "sounding solemnity I on his ear; but when the bell ceased, the silence was insupiortablr he fell al t as if he had lost a companion." "They were company to Toby Vet k : many kind things they said to liini." To the ltest of my Is'lief, he has only mail fun I of the moral effect of bells and their as social ions once, viz., in Nicholas Nick li by 's explanation of the part to lie )er forined in a new play by Mr. l,cnville, the heavy tragedian of Crum.nie's com pany : ' Hut just asyoii are raising the pistol to your head, a liell strikes ten: you pause, you reecollect- to have heard a 1k-!1 strike ten in your infancy; the pistol falls from your hand, you areover- i conic, burst into tears, and liecome a vir tuous character ever afterward." In his travels abroad he still displays his U-II worship. At Marseilles lie no tices the jail lell .-mil the bells on the draught horses; at Venice, " tl.e softened ringing of tin-eliurcli Ih IIs ;" at Genoa, " the long strings of patient mules th.nt . ,.. , , , g J,n'r,,"f ''"-J'" lls through the Jingling through every village;" the festa days, "when the liells of churches ring incessantly, not in peals, but in a horrible, irregular, jerking dingle, dingle, dingle, with a sudden stop at every fif teenth dingle or so, which is madden ing." Home seems to him " a vast wil derness of tinkling bells, from the bell .'.iat announces the elevation of the Host in St. Peter's, and the bell that gives the signal on Easter-Monday for the simulta neous illumination of the great cathe dral, to the bell which puts the carnival out like a breath." At Florence he re marks the Ik-11 of the beautiful Campa nile, " that summons the Coinpagnia della Misericordia to their charitable labors;" and as he returns homeward he hears the bells of Calais, and descrilies the night steamer which restores him to his native land as a "screech, a bell; and two red eyes." Arriving in London, like Arthur Cl.nnam (in Little Dorrit), " maddening church hells of all dem-ees of dissonance, sharp and flat, cracked and j and clear, last and slow, made the brick j and mortar hideous. In everv thorough fare, up almost every alley and down almost every turning, some doleful bell was throbbing, jerking, tolling, as if the plague was in the city and the dead-carts were going round. Mr. Arthur Clcnnam sat in the window of the coffee-house on I.udgate Hill, counting one of the neigh boring bells, making sentences and bur dens of songs out of it, in spite of him self, and wondering how mauv sick people it might be the death of in the course of the jear. As the hour approached, its changes of measure made it more and more exasperating. At the quarter, it went off into a condition of deadly-lively importunity, urging the populace in a voluble manner to ' Come to church, come to church ." At the ten minutes it became aware " (like the "disappointed bell " tolled by the sexton in Dombey and Son) " that the congregation would be scanty, and slowly hammered out, in low spirits, ' They won't come, they won't come, they won't come !' At the five minutes it abandoned hope, and shook every house in the neighborhood for three hundred seconds, with one dismal swing per second, as a groan of despair." In short, London represented to Dickens not so much the metropolis of the world as the capital of chimes, inhabited not by so many million human creatures, but by innumerable bells. He takes an interest even in bell-ringers mysterious mouldy men, of a somewhat ghoulish character from their association with church-yards, and always shabby, like " the whity-brown man whose clothes were once black, a man with flue on him and cobweb," and "the shabby little sexton who rang the church bell.iike the bull in ' Cock Robin,' with his foot in the stirrup." He lovingly lingers in musty old belfries, " where the rules and fines of the ringers are painted in rhyme upon the walls." He is great on beadles, like him of Eatanswill, "ringing an enormous bell, performing concertos on it, and fantasias by way of commanding silence among the uproarious electors of that immaculate borough ;" on the town- crier sent round with a bell to announce the opening of Crummies" theatre; on the " Golden Dustman" (in Our Mutual Friend), "clad in red plush velveteens, fan-tail hat, and hand-bell ;" on " the scarlet postman and his bell ;" on the chimney-sweep's bell ; on the muffin boys bells (to almlish which the public meeting is called in Nicholas Niekleby); on the liells on .Tip's Chinese pagoda many of which bells, alas ! are olisolete ; peripatetic liells, which have been swept away by ruthless police acts, or have died a natural death, like thoe of which Charles Lamb ask, ' What is gone with the cages with the climbing squirrel and bolU to them, whiob. were formerly the indispensable appendages to the outsideof a tinman's shop?" Gone, like' the pass ing-liell, the pancake bell, the thief and riever's bell, morris liells, All-hallowtide, Good-Friday, St. Catherine's Eve bells, liell corn, bell courses, and bell prizes.

Meiggs, the great railroad builder over the Andes in 1'eru, has just arr ved from that country with his family his wav to Kuroiie. lie said this on morning that he had had a talk since he had been iu New York with Mr. liufus Hatch, and had told him that an express line of steamers along the coast of South America, from Valparaiso to ranama, would prove a paying investment. There are no American lines there now, and the foreign lines arc ruu on the accommoda tion principle, stopping at every port. The average trip consumes twenty-one days, just about twice as long as it takes to go from New York to Liverpool. These steamers are charging extravagant freight and iMisscngor tariffs. Mr. Hatch told him that when he was a director in the Board of the Pacific Mail Steamship Company they had sent two agents down to the South American coast, each of whom had rtqiorted against such a proji osition. "I told him," said Mr. Meiggs, " that it was because the agent did not get thoroughly acquainted with the re sources of the countries. Such a line would pay well from the start." Mr. Meiggs said his brother's and his railroads had lieen progressing wonder fully well until the late government financial difficulties. Word came all at once that the government could not meet its engagements and Work was stopped like a flash on all the roads. "It had to be done," said he. " We had pushed our way through a tunnel just under the summit of the mountain, and were now descending toward the navigable waters of the Amazon. The roadway was pre pared for some distance down the eastern side of the mountain, but the rails were not laid quite to the tunnel yet. Wur roadway is now completed to a point only thirty-six miles in direct line from navi gable water on a branch of the Amazon, but we are yet eleven thousand feet in the air and shall have to, build fifty miles of road in order to make a descent possible. We had in ascending the Andes on the west side to make an elevation of sixteen thousand feet and had only one hundred miles to do it in. You can imagine the amount of climbing our engines have to do. The chief engineer of the Ghaut Railroad from Bombay iu India heard of our road a short time ago, while he was in Panama, and on the advice of friends came to see it. I gave him every facility to sec the road, though he was very much inclined to sneer at the stories he had lieen told. I did not see him again for a week. He had spcut the time on the line messing with one engineer after an other at various points and thoroughly examining the work. When he came back he said if any man had told him at the beginning what the contractors had undertaken to do he would have said it was simply impossible. The extreme cost of construction makes it necessary to charge the rate of five cents per mile." svjtrirAL or TIIK MOST JIE.T. TltAXSHA- In a fantastic tale entitled Manmat'ha, printed in the January Atlantic, are to be found these curious sugestions: It occurs to one very soon that animal life does exist of so transparent a texture that to all intent and purposes it ls invis ible. . The spawn of frogs, the larva? of certain fresh water insects, many marine animals, are so clear of texture that they are seen with difficulty. In the tropics a particular inhabitant of smooth seas is as invisible as a piece of glass, and can be detected only by the color mingled in its eyes. At first reflection a thousand in stances arise of assimilation of animal life to their surroundings, of mimicry of nature with a view to safety. Why, then, by survival of tte most transparent, should not some invisible life hold a se cure position on the earth ? Pondering thus, I had been startled not a little by coming now and again on facts-. that seemed to bear this out. Strange tracks through untrodden grass suggested footsteps of the unseen. Flat tened spaces of peculiar shape in the standing rye, where human beings couid not have ntuded, looked marvclously like human visitation. Or I lay con cealed and watch the crows in a roadside field. What was it caused them to look up suddenly, and flap away on seoty fringed wings? No bird, beast, or man came. Then the rats scampering about under a dock, like so many gaunt Vir ginia swine : all at once came a flurry of whisking tails, and they were off! Yet I had not stirred, nor did anything move on the dock above. Nevertheless all seemed to realize a common danger, a noise of some kind, perhaps a step? Again, you sit like a block while a snake basks unconscious in the sun, and may watch many hours without event ; but sometimes it happens that he raises his head, quivers for an instant his double tongue, and. slides off the stump into a brush. At such times put vour ear to the earth. Do you not distingush or is it all imagination a sound, a brushing ? Cai-kTc'es ot French Srscinro-MAs- tkrs. An amusing description of the method adopted by French singing-masters was recently given by a writer in the Paris Figaro. Take M. Delsarte, for example, who lives au suieme at Mont inartree. When a ;'oung man goes to this professor, something like the follow ing scene takes place : "Have you cour age ? " " Yes." " I warn you my method is severe. But we will try it. Rundown my six pair of stairs as quietly as possible, and then run up again, cry ing out 'Bonifacio' in varying tones. Do that for eight days, an hour and a half each day. Then we shall see about the beginning lessons." The famous M. Wartel is less severe, though equally original, lie asks a candidate to voc.il ize with closed mouth, and if a protest be entered against the possibility of such a thing, exclaims: "So much the worse. You must do it, if I am to be your pro lessor." But a well-known tenor em-i ploys a stranger method still. A joung lady goes to him, fur example, and is met by an order to stretch herself at full length upon a couch. She. remonstrates but finally obeys, and the master piles upon her a heap of books, surmounting the whole with a glass of water. " Now sing," he commands "Sing, sir!" ex claims the victim. " Yes, my child in singing you must respire as little as pos sible. When you sing thus, so as not to spill the water, I will undertake your training not liefore." . .The latest theory of the prosecution in the Land is case is, that the surgeons are the real murderers, having done the deed with their little probes, but that Laudbj waj au accessory before the fact because he made the hole fcr tte .ur- - ons to put the probes itj.

It consists of three pieces a tall tankard, for holding the wine ; a very handsome goblet, of most beautiful proportions, and a large, heavy plate for the bread, all of the pieces bearing the royal stamp, crown, etc. . .The re-opening of the venerable St. James church, at Goose Creek, near Charleston, S. C, occurred Sunday, Jan uary 2! . Rev. J. Grimke Drayton was invited by the vestry to preach the ser mon, and accepted. The ladies finely decorated the interior of the church for the occasion. Hereafter services are to lie held in the church each Sunday, the building and roads leading to it having been put in good repair. The Charleston News says the parish of St. James, ( !oose Creek, was laid out by act of the legis- ture in 1706. The church building was soon too small for its large and increasing j congregation, and the present brick edi- f i . -I. i i:i..i I : i7ii t. ! fice was built and iinii-hed in 1711. It U now, therefore, one hundred and sixty five years old. . It is a remarkable illustration of the growth of the church in this country that last week a minister of the Methodist Episcopal church died (Kev. Father Roclini), who was liorn nine years before the separate organization of that church, and onlv seven vcars after the dedication of the John-street chur. h, the first Meth odist church built in the United .States. At the time of his birth there were nine teen preachers in the denomination and 4,021 members. At the time of his death the Methodist churches in the northern branch alone numbered about 14,000, the preachers more than 21,00u. and the church members 1,500,000. The south-! eru and other brant lies of the Methodist j Episcopal church would increase these j numbers by about one-thild Xei- York j Observer. !

IS THE n ORLIHlUIXO TO THE Iff. I II.:' Dean Stanley, in Westminster Abbey, recently, spoke of the fear of many at the present time that the world is grow ing worse. " It may lie that sometimes iu our gloomy moods we are inclined to think we can not count of the con tinuous advance of the onward progress of our race. It may lie we are some times inclined to fear that the latter half of the nineteenth century is to close in a lower morality, a darker philosophy, a debasement of the senses, or a term of gross superstition. It may be that dia bolical crimes shall rise again which we had hoped were dead forever, that states men may again become corrupt and self seeking, that the leaders of sects and churches will again' prefer the outward to the inward, the natural to the spiritu al, the seen to the unseen." There are plenty of revelations to liear out in part a pessimist philosophy ; nnr is there any that shocked them killed oc maimed units, our misfortunes desolate hundreds of homes. The horrible consequences of strong drink in brutality to woman and children have .multiplied in our large towns. For one- English child brought up in foul air three hundred years ago, there are now at least fifty. For ten men habitually unused to country walks in the sixteenth century, these are prob ably one hundred. Ifv.e. look abroad and remember the civil war in America, or the recent French wf;r, we see that the numbers of men engaged in deadly struggle were ten or twelve times the forces of our ancestors, though great, and the loss in money and ervery way to the nations striving proportionately in creased. In trade and commerce dis honesty has made gigantic strides ; the tiny picking, and stealings of the village have grown into gigantic city frauds. Goldsmith's rogue no longer cheats far mer Flambo rough in a bargain, or over reaches Moses with "a gross of blue spectacles ;" he starts a company, and dips his hands in thousands of pockets. Then instead of a few sailors being paid to scuttle a ship, giving the passengers time to escape in boats, we have the Bremcrhaven monster, who murders by machinery and winds up an assassina tion eight days in advance ol the deed, leaving no hopes for the victims of the calculated crime. Moreover, faith has died down, leaving none of the stern, relentless zeal that impelled men to die at the stake themselves or burn their neighbor for a clause in a creed. Tbe chivalrous loyalty which placed life and goods at the bidding of a king is van ished or is cherished only by a few peas ants, priefts and nobles in Biscay and Navarre. Our theater revels not on in tellectual but sensuous attractions ; our literature is all copy and compilation ; our poetry is half hearted, and Romeo, sighing under Juliet's balcony, is soothed by the anticipation of a dinner, a cigar and rubber at the club.

The facts as to the religious progress of the United States are very remark able, and have been collected by Prof. Denian, of Brown university. In 1777 the number of churches was less than 950 ; by the census of 1870 the number was 72,000. Churches have multiplied nearly thirty-seven fold ; population, eleven fold. In 1870, religious societies owned $.154,000,000 worth of property. The most extraordinary increase has been among the Methodists and Roman Catholics. The rapid rate of increase of religious bodies might well seem alarm ing, were it not that the vast amount of property held by religious organiza tions is distributed among many liodies. A century ago the Congregationalists were largely in advance; Methodists were hardly known by name. Now. Methodists are the largest organization in the land. Ojie hundred years ago the more important religious liodies were reckoned in the following order: Con gregationalists, Baptists, church of Eng land, Presbyterians, Lutherans, German Beforined, Dutch Reformed, and Roman Catholics, Christian, Lutherans, Con gregationalists and Protestant Episco- ; pal. The zeal of American Christianity j has nowhere expended itself with such j force as it has in founding schools and i colleges, and precisely at this point the i Roman Catholic Church merges into j significance. It ranks now as fourth in j population and second for the value of church proierty. It has occasioned ap prehension, but on insufficient grounds, as reasons for its surprising growth can be found in foreign immigration. Neither the church statistics nor the census fur ish material for anxietv. But conced ing that the lMtio of the increase has been great, there is nothing in the growtli of this powerful liody which need excite any apprehension. AVer York .S'tfi. . . A Vermont man returned home the other day, alter an absence of eleven years, and found that neither of the three husbands his wife had married and buried had fixed the gate. "0 wearisome condition of humanity '." How many wretched homes in our laml! How many heart-broken invalids! Ufo with many signifies a mere onerous existence. All arc subject to diseasr, but when health is removed the hope is nearly gone out. Sick ness is usually incurred through exposure or carelessness. Kspeeially is this true with those diseases peculiar to woman. Through her own imprudence and folly she is made to drag out a miserable existence a source of annoyance and anxiety to her friends, and anything but a comfort and pleasure to her self. Exposure to the cold at times when she should he the most prudent, and overtax ing her body with laborious employment, are both fruitful causes of many of the maladies from which she suffers. Gradually the bloom leaves her cheeks, her lips grow ashy white, her vivacity departs, she continually experi ences a feeling of weariness and general lan guor, and altogether presents a ghostly ap pearance. AVhat does she need? Should she take some stimulating drug, whieh will for the time make her "feel better," r does her entire system need reparation? She requires something which not only will rrslure to health the diseased organs, hut will tone and invigorate the svstem. Dr. Pieree's Favorite Prescription will do this, ttimpartsstrength to the diseased parts, brings back the glow of health, and restores comfort where previ ously there was only suffering. Every invalid lady should send fur "The People's Common .Sense Medical Adviser," in which over fifty pages are devoted to the consideration of those diseases peculiar to Miiit;ii. it oc senr, posi-pain, 10 anv : address, for $1.50.
