You Lave the facts and figures showing the effect of this traffic in causing crime, pauperism, and a fearful train 01 evils reaching to every home and heart. W e know of no plea that can be mp.de for the continuance of a busi ness that produces nine-tenths of the crimes and misdemeanors that affect society, and ? confidently ap ' peal to you to grant us 6uch legisla tion as will enable us to relieve our selves from the burden of expense and misery that is now imposed up on us by this traffic. TVe are not fanatical, but as sober minded Christian men and women, fearing God, and laboring earnestly for the welfare of humanity, we ask your decisive action to remove this evil from us, and we will ever pray, &.C. a a or 'A to ing too A Railway Temperance Movement.

After some little difficulty in com pleting arrangements for the prose cution of his work, ho at ler, fairly started in the Seventh Street Methodist Episcopal Church, and very soon large crowds were drawn together to listen. The Church named has become too small for the crowds who attend these meetings, and the large hall used by Rev. Dr. S. H. Tyng, Jr., has been offered and accepted for the present. Mr. Murphy, also, has made arrange ments to begin a series of Gospel Temperance meetings in the large hall of the Sailors' Exchange for the special benefit of sailors. "The daily press generally speak highly of his efforts, and offer to him words of en couragement rather than words of criticism. Of course it is yet too early to say what will be the results of these meetings, but as yet every thing promises great results. rN. Y. Letter. one to the and like is can For and your as An Important Victory. Fredericton, the capital of New Brunswick, has taken the initiative under the new Temperance Act of Canada, and voted for the prohibi tion of the 6ale of all alcoholic bev erages, to take effect May 1, 1879, by a majority of two to one. There was a very earnest preliminary con test The friends of Temperance organized a campaign of public meet ings, every elector was visited, women held prayer-meetings, and "A committee was appointed to se lect and distribute Literature bear ing upon the contest, and every home in Fredericton was visited by the mute but persuasive documents, appealp, and facts, which were scat tered in profusion." Thus thoroughly was the prelim inary work done, and a grand suc cess achieved. It is a noble prece dent for other constituencies to fol low both in Canada and the United States. Murphy is assisted in Lis tem perance revivalism by Mr. and Mrs. Wilson, vocalists. Mrs. Wilson, says a New York correspondent, is a well preserved, elegantly dressed lady. She is the sister of the lato P. P. Bliss. She has a fine contralto voice. She has marvelous compass and skips about like a canary on Lis perch. She Las a good deal of magnetism, and will take in New York if she has pa tience to wait Her husband has a harsh voice, and often 6ings her Sown. He enunciates with great distinctness.

Food and Starvation. We often hear complaints of failure of arops, want of yield, that land does not yield "as it used to do ;" and the cause is so apparent and the remedy so easy that it is strange there should be any discussion upon the subject It all lies in a nut shell, and is contained in the two words, "Food and Starvation." me virgin sou was ncn to fatness in decayed vegetable matter, and long with stood the constant drain of cropping, but for years it has been drained of its life blood without any return is now ex hausted. Put it back to the condition it was when the plough first broke the sod, and the result would be the same. But no efforts have been made in that direc tion. Lvery successive crop lias more depleted and enfeebled it; has tended to snp it of all plant food, and the inevita ble consequence is ttiat growth should corresjiondingly dwindle and land scarce ly repay culture. Stock -is fed if expected to repay in nixr. Horses and oxen are not starved, iut land is rarely looked upon in the same light, as it should be. ieeel your . . . M ... acres as you ao your oecl and pork and they will increase in fatness; starve, and they will equally show their bones. What other result could be expected? now can the exhaustive process go on without at last resulting in failure? Feeble and impoverished soil never will, never can give a fair return; it is simply impossible. Want of rest and nourish ment tends ever to sterility, and when a farmer complains that his land will scarcely "grow white beans," the cause requires no long seeking. But we must enter our protest against the "white bean" view of the matter. They, as well as anything else, deserve and re quire proper food, and will equally repay the giving. Poor land never grew even good crop of beans, and they delight much as wheat and corn in weed less culture and fertilizing properties. We find the food and starvation ques tion so effectually set forth in a late num ber of the Vermont Chronicle, that we can not retrain lrom copying it: "Since the creation, until less than one hundred years ago, the soil of Vermont had been growing richer and richer by the growth and decay of vegetation, by the decomposition of the rocks, and the chemical changes going on in the soil. The first settlers of this State entered upon a goodly heritage, indeed. prairie of the West, no Californian valley, reports better wheat crops than were grown in Vermont for the first fif ty years of her soil's cultivation. Never were there seen, on all the earth's green surface, better meadows or richer past ures. These things, that were the rule short time ago, are now becoming the exception. We have exhausted and spent our fathers' endowment. Like the captain's sons, we have spent all we took in. And now though," thank God, we have only taken awav the high con dition, Rnd not the native strength of our laud it will take much toil, much study, and farming based upon true and genuine "business principles," to make Vermont what she was. Shall we do it, shall we go West to devastate more land? Our fathers are excused, because they knew, r.nd could know, no better. has excuse is not for us." Grumbling. How many men, avc and women, love grumble 1 It is food and drink for them, and as natural as breath. Noth ever goes right. It is too hot or too cold, too wet or too dry, too sunny or dark, too early 01 too late, and so on through the entire category of imagina evils, as if there was not sufficient of realitv. They never enter the house without finding something has gone wrong. Dinner is spoiled in the cook ing; is not what was wanted; is cold; some fault. The children are 'rais ing hob f the poor wife is blamed, and everything is kept red not. bo, too, in business. Every tiling is wrong there; things are out of place; other men will do exactly as he thinks right; the mails are not on time; the government run according to his peculiar ideas. the country going to the dogs! Heaven help all who come in contact with the chrome grumbler; especially those who are under his rule. They stand about the same chance for peace comfort as a man in a hornet's nest or a 6trange dog in a country town. all growl and snarl. Never content ed himself, he never permits anybody to be so. He grumbles at getting and grumbles at going to bed ; grum bles when lie gets his dues because he does not receive more,and grumbles when forced to pay his debts because they are much ; grumbles when asked to do a favor, and at the very man who does one ; grumbles at the rising and the setting of the sun, and as a witty son of once remarked, would grumble he was going to be hung." A grumbler is tosociety what ajiettle is the vegetable kingdom, stinging every that conies in contact with it; is the proverbial dog in the manger. He ought to live in a world managed accord ing to his own ideas of the eternal fit ness of things, though even then he would not be satisfied. The very angels would fail to please him. and if he car ries beyond the grave the peculiar char acteristics of this life, Heaven will have be reorganized and a radical change made in its government; for the songs won't be in the right key; tke golden harps out of tune, and the plumage of sweet singers will have to be dressed curled in some other fashion. Grumbling is a useless, senseless, in sulting, abominable fashion ; is very a snake biting everything it touches ; the most unhappy frame of mind that be imagined ; and what a curiosity a world managed by grumbleis would be. the sake of household peace and comfort and love; for the sake of wives children ; for the sake of all hu manity, avoid grumbling as you would and be blessed ; as you would have days pass pleasantly; as you would your death cause tears, and not a 3ense of rebef and sighs of rejoicing.

A watchmaker, named Adams, who practiced his craft some years ago in Church Street, Hack ney, was fond of putting scraps of poetry "the outer case of watches sent to him repair. One of his effusions was to following effect: "To-morrow? yea, to-morrow ! yonll repent A train of years in nee and folly aornt.

There are many who mistake the lovi of life for a fear of death. Fancy runs most furiously when guiltv conscience drives it. A royal soul may belong to a beggar, and a beggarly one to a king. Very few persons have sense enough to despise the praise ot a 1001. A doctor niav learn to cure by killing. but men never" learn to tell the truth by lying. No man is always wrong. A clock that does not tro at all. is right twice in tne twenty-four hours. Courage, the commonest of the virtues, obtains more applause man uiscreuon the rarest of them. Let not one failure discourage you. He that has had a fall may stand as up right as he ever did. Love can excuse anything but mean ness; but meanness kills love, and crip ples even natural affection. There is no one else who has the power to be so much, your friend or so much your enemy as yourscll. That, nnlr ran with nrrmrit'tv be Stvled refinement, which, by strengthening the intellect, purines the manners. To all men the best friend is virtue the best companions are high endeav ours and honorable sentiments. Many people's lives are not worth the market value of the iron in their blood and tho phosphorus in their bones. The majority of women are little touched by friendship, for it is insipid when they have once tasted ot love. We are oftener more cruellv robbed by those wiio steal into our hearts than by those who break into our nouses. In some tranquil and apparently amia ble natures, there are olten unsuspected and unfathomable depths ot resentment. The tear of a loving girl is like a dew riron on the rose : but that on the cheek of a wife is a drop of poison to her hus band. Of all monarchs, nature is the most just in the enactment of laws, and the most rigorous in punishing the violation of them. Friends should be very delicate and careful in administering pity as medi cine, when enemies use the same article as poison. Some of us fret inwardly, and some fret, outwardlv. The latter is the better plan for our friends, but the worse for ourselves. When a cunning man seems the n.ost humble and submissive, he is often the most dangerous. Look out for the crouch ing tiger. Never retire at night without being wiser than when you rose in the mom- ng. by having learned something usemi during the day.

"Ia it possible for a person's hair to turn within a short time?" There are so many instances now on record that there ought to be no longer any doubt upon the subject, in the late Arctic ex pedition nearly every man's hair be came grayer, and in some cases white, but assumed its natural color when the men returned to lower latitudes. In many cases the human hair is said to have turned gray from grief, extreme care, or sudden fright. During an out ward passage- to Australia (says a corre spondent), the ship 1 was in sunered greatly in the British Channel: twice we were nearly wrecked, having lost three anchors and two cables. The pilot who had charge was constantly on watch, only snatching a few minutes' sleep here and there, as opportunity afforded. On the whole, he had a very anxious time indeed, and when he event ually left the ship off the Isle of Wight, he certainly looked twenty years older. I thought his hair had decidedly turned grayer; this may, however, have been only imagination, and therefore ought rather to De considered as an impression than actual fact. Within the last few months a fresh case of the possibility of u-. ..i 1 i ' mo uuiur ut uie iitur cnanging lias come under my notice. An old gentleman, aged eighty-nine, residing in my imme diate1 neighborhood, lately died. For many years his hair has been perfectly white, but a few days before his death some of his hair became black, giving the appearance of his having.', irk brown or black hair. Here it is interesting to note that in bis younger days his hair was light. After the death of this gen tleman the tips of his hair for about an jinch assumed the original color, becom ing white again. I have heard of an otner instance where, after death, the ihair had turned from white to black. Dogs seem to be affected with regard to their hair in like manner as human be ings. I lately read of a case where a black Newfoundland dog became gray in a few weeks, and the writer declares that the only cause for this sudden eoa vexsion was grief. an all let is a on he bv and has to Telegraphic.

Carlvle's Literary Habits. Thomas Carlyle works but two hours a day. What tie accompiisnes in tnis briet time will live. Few authors who have achieved immortality have written rap idly. Sir Walter Scott and Byron are among the exceptions. A great majority have been as painstaking as Montesquieu, who wrote to a correspondent : "You will read my book in a few hours, but its composition has turned my hair white." Carlyle is among the number of literary men" who has plodded through a long literary life, but the plodder has left his impress upon the age in which he lives, and it will continue to exist so long as our language endures.

On the southeastern coast of Texas, not a great way from Corpus Christi, is the stock range of Capt. ltichard King, who is, indeed, the stock king of the United States. His ranch is most beau tifully and favorably situated on a stream called the Santa Gertrude. Capt, King has under fence about 200,000 acres of pasture land, upon which the finest and most nutritious grasses grow. Besides that portion of his estate enclosed, a vast domain of territory owned by him lies open. This monarch in his business estimates that he owns twenty-two thousand horses and fifty thousand sheep. As to the number of cattle iu his pos session there are no possible means of safely conjecturing. His residence is large and elegant, and nothing, the absence of which would detract from the treasures and comforts of his home. lacking. Being near the Mexican border, he has found it. necessary to resort to an unusually forcible method cruardinir his interests from the en croachment of marauding parties.

What his fortune amounts in the aggregate no man can tell, though its value would run far into the millions. Persian Ladies. The bath is the greatest pleasure and luxury we might almost call it neces sity of life of the Persian women. They spend the greater part of their leisure time there ; indeed, the Eastern ladies regard the use of the bath almost in the light of a religious duty. The bathroom Persia is the teniple, the newsroom, the drawing-room all in one. The women make appointments to meet there, and they tattle and gossip away their sweet hours there, sometimes spending from seven to eight hours at a time in the carpeted saloon attached to where, and in the bath, they tell stories, relate anecdotes, eat sweetmeats, smoke the narghileh (or pipe), and em- bellisu their beautiful lorms with all the fancied perfections of the East. dyeing ineir uair anci eyeuruws, anu tuiiuusiv staining their fair bodies with a variety fantastic devices, not unirequentiy with the figures of trees, birds and beasts, sun. moon, and stars.

There they sit down and stretcn out their feet, and every one must light twelve tapers, and doing this care must be taken to lift hand high above the head, so as to raise up the veil, as if by accident, and thus display their beautiful faces." All twelve tapers must be lighted by maiden, and where one of the tapers is left unlighted, it is regarded as unlucky omen. "Further, it is not at necessary that, in lighting the tapers, Silence should iie observed. On the contrary, lovely women should alwavs their sweet voices be heard."

But in winter? when home comfort lias a vital meaning? what of it is found, think you, in these handsome barracks of theirs, where you have to muffle yourself up in furs as if setting out for a journey through Siberia, and for all arti ficial warmth trust to the scaldino under your feet, and maybe one in your lap waiting with patience, wanned by cups of broth, for the turn of the season which is to release you from semi-congelation? No; the Italians know noth ing of comfort as we have it. and both the French and the Germans beat them off the field. These last indeed do give us cleanliness, which the children of the sunny south hold a superfluous posses sion altogether, and, although spiders and red ants, cockroaches, with an occa sional scorpion in your window curtains and a centipede under your pillow, may be interesting enough to the naturalist, key are not of so much value to the orld at large. Ordinary folks, indeed, would prefer to have their apartments so well dusted and cleaned as to make the tenancy of these and other such beasts impossible, compounding for the loss of naturalistic knowledge by the gain of personal comfort and domestic cleanliness. As for Spain poor Spain like a queen of old time tumbled down from her royal heights, reduced to beg gary, and trailing her purple in the dust she is past praying for in the matter of domestic decency, not to speak of comfort. She does not know the alpha bet, still less how to write the poem of Home so she may pass to the side as not worth the trouble of considering. In Russia we have home comfort of a very sufficient quality ; yes, that is unde niable; but outside? Yon cannot call a climate where frost-bites are of the ordi nary run of things if a square inch of your flesh meets the air comfortable Our own climate is bad enough ; but we are a few degrees less ferocious than Russia, and the chances of catching a cold are not exactly to be weighed against inose oi being caught by a pack ot wolves if you venture half a mile awav from the .village. Still, the house appliances of Russia are to be spoken of with more than respect with genu ine admiration and their superiority to our own confessed with gratitude for the lesson ; though none the less England is the most comfortable country, and nn lewer unpleasantnesses to smooth away we have both a sharper nlane and a more nicely-adjusted ornamentation.

The next day ho resolved to try again. He saw that the poor captain was not on leek, and again he went and knocked at the door. "Who's there?" "Captain, can I do anything foryou to-day?" asked Little Bob. "No, no ; go away," said the captain. Bob was pleased that the cap tain did not speak m so harsh a voice as e did the dav belore, and he made up his mind to try again. Meantime the captain's heart grew warm toward the little fellow. He thought how different ly he had acted from the unfeeling sail ors, who had not once Inquired for him all the time of his illness, and he de termined, that if he came again, he would let him in. When Bob came next day, the cap tain said, "Come in." Bob walked in on tiptoe, and said, very tenderly, "Please, sir, can I do anything for you? Shall I mate your bed, or get you a cup ot col- tee .' i ll do it m a minute." " W ell, .Bob, you may, if you like, said the captain. Away ran Hob, and in a few minutes everything was ready, the coffee, and the hot toast, and he brought it on a tray to the captain'sbedside. Bob always carried with him the Bible in his pock et; and as he came in the room, the cap tain observed it. 'What book is that? said he. "It is the book my mother gave me," said Bob ; the nicest book you ever saw. tan vou read it. Bob? "Oh, yes, 6ir," said the boy, "and I should like to read it to vou." "Ave, vou may, said the captain : 'as soon as I have finished my coffee you may begin." Bob cleared away the conee, and set hiniselt down on a box beside the captain's bed, and opened on the history of Jesus, and read how He went about doing good; how He pitied the wretched, how He healed the sick and fonrave their sins. The captain listened very attentively, and asked the boy to come again the next day. lrom this time he came every day and instructed the poor captain in the knowledge ot Jesus the baviour. lie asked him many questions, and Bob knewhow to answer them thanks to lis mother and to his Sunday-school. One evening the captain said, "Leave me that book of yours, Bob; I should like to look at it myself." Bob willingly left it. The next morning iie went as usual, and tapped at the cabin door. No answer came. Again he tapped, and louder. Still no answer. He opened the door and walked in. The captain was on his knees, and the Bible was lv- ing open on the chair before him. Bob spoke; still there was no answer. He came nearer: the captain never stirred. He looked; the captain was dead. He had died on his knees, praving over the Bible. We trust that through the in structions of little Bob he had sought and found mercy at the hands of the Saviour of sinners. Is there a little boy a little girl, now reading this, who can not do as much as this poor cabin-boy 1 Uo and do likewise.

This Sarsaparilla is a combination of vegetable alteratives Stillingia, Man drake, Yellow Dock with the Iodides Potassium and Iron, and is the most efficacious medicine yet known for the diseases it is intended to cure. Its ingredients are so skilfully com bined, that the full alterative effect of each is assured, and while it is so mild to be harmless even to children, it is still so effectual as to purge out from the system those impurities and corruptions .vhieh develop into loathsome disease. The reputation it enjoys is derived from its cures, and the confidence which prominent physicians all over the coun try repose in it, prove their experience its usefulness. Certificates attesting its virtues have accumulated, and are constantly being received, and as many of these cases are publicly known, thev furnish convincing evidence of the superiority of this Sar saparilla over every other alterative medicine, so generally is its superi ority to any other medicine known, that need do no more than to assure the public that the best qualities it has ever possessed are strictly maintained.
