Alesander, during his march into Af--'.ca, came to a people dwelling in peace ful huts, who knew neither war nor eon quesf. Gold being offered him he re fused it, saying that his sole object was to leant the manners and customs of the inhabitants. "Stay with us," said the chief, "as long as it plensetli thee." During this interview with the African chief, two of his subjects brought a case before bini for judgment. The dispute was this: The one had bought a piece of ground, which after the purchase was found to contain a treasure, for which he felt himself bound to pay. The other refused to receive anything saying that he had sold the ground with what it might be found, to contain, apparent or concealed. Said the chief, looking at the one, 'you have a son ;" and to the other, "You liave a daughter. Let them be married, and let the treasure be given them as a dowry." V . .1 Alexander was astonished. "And what," said the chief, "would have been, the decision in your country ?" "We should. Lave dismissed the par ties, and seized the treasure for the king's use." "And does the sun shine in yonr conn try?" said the chief. "Does the rain full there? Are there any cattle there which feed upon herbs and green grass?" "Certainly," said Alexander. 1 "Ah !" said the chief, "it is for the sake those innocent cattle that the Great Beinp permits the sun to shine, the rain f!ill, and the grass to grow in your country." The Snow of Age. No snow falls lighter than the snow of age; but none is heavier, for it never melts. The figure is by no means novel, but the closing part of the sentence is new well as emphatic. The scriptures represent age by the almond tree, which Dears blossoms or the purest white. Ihe almond tree shall flourish" the head shall be hoary. Dickens says of one of his characters whose hair was turning gray, that it looked as if time had lightly splashed his snows upon its passage. "It never melts" no never I Age is inexorable. Its wheels must move on ward they know no retrograde move ment. The old man may Bit and sitig would I wero a boy again" but he grows older as he sings. He may read the elixir of youth; but he cannot find ; he may sigh for the secrets of that alchemy which is able to make him young, but sighing brings it not. He may gaze backward with an eye of long ing ujKn the rosy scenes of early years, one who gazes on his home from the deck of a departing ship, which every moment carries him farther and farther1 away. I'oor old man! lie has httle more to do than die. "It never melts." The snow of winter comes and sheds its white blessing upo the valley and the mountains, bnt soon the sweet spring comes and smiles it all away. Not so with that upon the brow the tottering veteran. There is no spring whose warmth can penetrate its eternal frost It came to stay. Its sin gle flakes fell unnoticed and now it is drilled there. We shall see it increase nntil we lay the old man in his crave. There it shall be absorbed by the eternal uarkness lor there is no age in neaven. Yet why speak of age in mournful strain? It is beautiful, honorable, elo quent. Should we sigh at the proximity death.when life and the world are so of emptiness ? Let the old exult be cause they are old. If any must weep it be the young, at the long succession cares that are before them. Welcome snow, for it is an emblem of peace and of rest. It is but a temporal crown which shall fall at the gates of Paradise be replaced by a brighter and better. Will somebody inform us how it is that dog, the best, truest, most coura geous and unselfish of man's friends, is nuo.l In Vflrimia smrpssmna no iiwllnntupa everything that is bad ? An obstinate ! scoundrel is termed "dogged;" a lying scamp a "hound," a coward a ''cur," and brainless idiot a "puppy." The road ruin is called "going to. the. "dogs.; This is not fair to the dogs'."

Toung Fred, a bashful, yet persistent swain, Was very much In love with Miry Jane. One night she told him in her tenderest toce, "It is not good for man to be alone." ' Said Fred, "Jest so, yon darling little elf, I've often thought of that same thing myself." Then saij the lass, while Fred was all agog, Ton onght to buy yourself a terrier dog." He took the hint and left. HOUSE TO LET. "Hejgho!" yawned Jlr. Ellicott, the reai estate agent, as he looked out of the window at two old women, a market. cart, and the postman. "Times are dull fearfully dull! Never have known 'em stagnant so since-1 was in the busi ness. A list of .houses to rent and for sale that would suit anybody, at prices that are absolutely scandalous, as for as cheapness is concerned, and no demand lor em literally none!' And Mr. Ellicott lighted his cigar, arranged the "To Lets" a little more attractively in the window, and shook his head mournfully at the big ledger on tne uiga uesK. But just at that instant in which he drew a sigh, indicative of the extremest despondency, a stout, middle-aged gen tleman, with a felt hat, an umbrella under his arm, and square toed boots, walked into the neat car.ieted office. The agent slipped nimbly off his chair, laid down his cigar, and assumed the business smile. "What can I do for you?" he said, rubbing his hands, and scenting a brown Ptone sale, or a red brick exchange, at me very leasi. -My name is Jones," said the stout stranger. "Happy to see you. Mr. Jones." sinx pered the real estate agent, rubbing away naraer man ever. And I want to rent a respectable house in a pleasant neighborhood," aauea tne gentleman, i am sick of boarding, and I intend to take a house and go to house-keeping." "Certainly, by all means," said the agent, Degmning briskly to nutter oej Die leaves of his book. "W e have, I am tiappy to say, a number of most eligible residences here, which can hardly fail to meet yonr requisitions. . "Give me a list," said the old gentle man. "Certainly," said Mr. Ellicott, dipping nis pen into me wooden sumdisn. "I mean business," said Mr. Jones. "I am glad to hear it," said the agent And scarcely five minutes more had elapsed before the middle-aged gentle man, with the a'paca umbrella, and the square-toed boots, was where a fat let tered 10 Let nung conspicuously be side the door. Miss Pamelia Peppermint was just taking her hair out of crimp in the front third-story apartment as the bell sounded its hollow tocsin through the house. "Joanna," said Miss Pamelia, over the stairs, "look out of the area window and see who it is." "It is a gentleman, ma'am," Joanna answered, in a shrill whisper, "in a su perfine broadcloth coat aud a new um brella." . "Come to answer the advertisement," said Miss Pamelia, radiantly. "Show him into the parlor, Joanna and tell him I'll be down directly." She settled her crimps once again, Einned a petite ribbon bow in her back air, gave her forehead a farewell dab with a powder pulT, aud read over for the last time, a paragraph in the morn ing's paper, which ran as follows : Wanted By a young lady of educa tion and experience, a pusitiou as House keeper to a gentleman of means. No trifiers need apply to Miss 1'., No. t9 Nixon street. "Dear me," said Miss Peppermint, "how my heart flutters for surely this a crisis in my life. How often does a housekeeper eventually become some thing nearer nnd dearer to a gentleman susceptibility and appreciation! I hope he is foiul of poetry." blie crossed the threshold with a trip ping step. . To her surprise, the apart ment was empty. "Where is lie, Joanna?" said she look ing around in dismay.

It is seldom advisable for women who; have a sufficient income to attempt its increase by exchanges or investing it in business. But there are many whose incomes are inadequate, and who are under the necessity of increasing their incomes or leaning on their friends. Supposing a woman in these circum stances is of an independent spirit, and resolves not to depend on the assistance of friends, my first suggestion to her would be to resolve that, come what may, her present property shall not be diminished. And if to what she has she can, by self-denial and earnest effort, add something from tima to time, the tide will at lentrth turn in her favoi. She may hear it whispered, "Molly Stark has taken up teaching, has become a governess, is copying law papers quite a tumble." Well, Mollie Stark is not beholden to such, nc-r ever will be. Saving and laving uo is the habit that succeeds. It seem to be in the blood of some families tf both sexes alike to be independent. Cost what it may of present self-denial, they will set the ball rolling that will griw into a round com petence. How much better and hap pier is such a life in the long run than tile ot sopuieness and semi-depend ence. A resolute woman is pretty Bure tr find one way or another to do that which will be remunerative, and be- prospects for working out her pecuniary salvation are better than those of the average m,n in the same circumstances. Of course, her success all depends on losing no time and saving and laying np ier earn! ncs. Where it Never Rains. In Peru, South America, rain is un known. The coast of Peru i3 within the region of perpetual southeast trade- winds, and though the Peruvian shores are on the verge of this great southeast boiler, yet it never rains there. The reason is plain. The southeast trade winds in the Atlantic ocean first strike the water on the coast of Africa. Travel ing to the northwest, they blow obliquely across the ocean until they reach the coast of Brazil. By this time they are laden with vapor, which they continue to bear along across the continent, de positing it as they go and supplying with it the sources of the Rio de la Plata and the southern tributaries of the Amazon. Finally they reach the snow-cappeij Andes ; here is wrung from them the last particle of moisture that very low temperature can attract. Reaching the smnmit of that range. they now tumble down as cool and dry winds on the Pacific slope beyond. Meeting with no evaporating surface, and no temperature colder than that to which they were subjected on the mountain-tops, they reach the ocean. Thus w e see bow the tops of the Andes become the. reservoir from which are supplied the. rivers of Chili and Peru. DirrTTEiriA.

In wandering throngh the various resting-places of the dead one might well ex claim: "Where are the sinners buried?" Surely their graves are not here; the in scriptions on marble, shaft or Blab indi cate the resting places of the good alone. But in going here and there through old cemeteries, especially in England, one of ten comes across inscriptions strangely un like those of the present day. Let ns pang oy me ordinary ones ana read some ot the extraordinary. The two wives: of Thomas !exton are buried in a churchyard near JNewmarket. Lpon the stone over the grave of the first one is the following: -Here lie. tb body of Sarah Sexton She was a wife that never vexed one.

The follow ing is an extract from La lypotTrufia ifsxicana, an able and libera paper published in the City of Mexico, It will be all the more interesting, as it gives some facts about the country, com. piled by intelligent native authority: incredible as it may seem, in many parts of Mexico there are acres upon ' acres of land that yield every year three and even four crops of corn, cultivated as they are in the crude way still followed by the Indians; and a yield of five hun dred for one is common enough through out the country. Eight hundred and fifty-six thousand square miles, the area of the republic, present no mean field for commercial enterprise where the soil yields every necessary of human want, every element of luxurious comfort, every element of accumulating wealth. And the country is still in its major part, undeveloped, in many parts even unex plored ; and the Mexicans themselves, only partially estimate the wealth and resources that lie dormant under their soil, in their vallevs and on their moun tain ranges. According to official statis tics, the foreign commerce of Mexico, imports and exports united, exceeds sixty millions of dollars annually ; ac- jording to the Jactt, and taking into con sideration the extensive smuetrlins: car ried on over the six thousand miles of sea coast she has to guard, we may almost doable these figures and say one hundred millions. The purely internal "rarte may be put at four hundred mill ions per annum. The estimated value of farming properties is seven hundred nnd twenty millions of dollars, and of city properties, six hundred and sixty- five millions. Humboldt gave the gold and silver product up to 1803 at $8,242, XX),000; and for the seventy-five years to date, at thirty millions per annum, as the average product, $2,250,000,0(10, and we have the startling figures, $8,492,000, i0 as Mexico's contribution to the precious metals circulating in the world. One year with another, not less than fifteen millions in gold and silver bars and coin, go to Europe through the cus tom houses, and nearly as much more goes as contrabando. All these figures are simply a fraction of what the republic can produce if worked up to anything like her capacity for the yield of gold and silver. Here is a grand field for the mirrng instruments and apparatus of the North, which every manufacturer of the United States should attend to. Mexico, says the same paper, can sup ply the United States at a cheaper rate with all the goods imported from the West Indies, Brazil and Central and South America, and there is little doubt of the fact. Mexican trade will be a great fact yet, notwithstanding the per sistent efforts of certain parties in Mexico and in this country working in the interest of European traders, to put obstacles iu the way. Wc believe the manufacturers of Chicago and the North west have made tho right beginning. Some Things that Mexico Produces. Tact. It w";isoTk Causetir's good fortune to spend a few days ia the modest home ot a friend of slender means, a home that was all that its owner could afford to make it, yet Licked many things that would liave made it more comfortable and convenient. During Causeur's stay two guests were entertained at tea, both of them ' men of means and wide acquaintance, accustomed to all the luxury tl.at wealth can give. iut they were widely different in their behavior. The first dwelt upon the fact that the house was in an out-of-the way spot, and that there were few or no neighbors. At the table he told of the delicious tea he had drank at the house of one friend, of lhe rich tea service he had seen upon the table of another, of the rare old china that was used in his own honse- hold, and of the dainty meals he had eaten from it. In the cramjied httle sitting-room after tea, he sat by the stove and talked of the delights of an open wood fire, of his enjoyment of rare and costly books and pictures, and of twenty otlier things that the host, of whose hospitality he had partaken, did not and could not possess. When he had gone it was clear, although nothing was said, that his visit had caused pain, that it had made the wife feel her straightened circumstances more keenly than ever, and cast a shadow over her husband's thoughts. The next evening came the other visitor. He brought good cheer in his very face. The room, he said, felt so warm aud comfortable after his walk, which, he added, was just the thing to give a man a good appetite for his supper. At the table he spoke of everything that was nice, con gratulated his host on having such a snug little home, apologized for eating bo much but couldn't help it because it was "so good" and tasted "so homelike," liked the old black teapot because it was just like the one his mother had when he was a boy, and told his hostess, w ho was all smiles and happy as a queen, that she ought to thank her stars that she had no gas or furnace to ruin the flowers that made ' her room look so cheerful. After tea he insisted that the ! children should not be sent to bed just yet ; said he wanted to tell them a story, as he did ; and, when he had done, and had kissed them good-night, they trudged off up stairs with beaming faces, under the guidance of a mother who felt that ray of real sunBhine had entered her home, making it better and tsppier. as More Conveniences. We ask every fanner, -tha half day of rainy or idletime; to sit down and seriously inquire of himself if there ar not many conveniences needed about the house, barn, cribs and Stables which he could easily and cheaply construct. Confine this investigation not entirely to conveniences for himself, but extend it to all departments for the wife, daughters, son ajui hl.--"l be!r. Do you wade through mud ta tuer tarn in rain and in thaws of the spring? How easily this could be obviated by gravel or plan St walks. Are the members of your family exposed to the same inconvenience in going to the well the smoke-house, the water-closet, the chicken jhouse, or even to the front gate ? And yet some people think you are: good hnsband- and father. How are the steps to go into your cellar ? Are they ia good ord, and are the steps of the proper height for your over-burdened wife to descend or as cend easily ? Is the wood house distant and inconvenient, or have you no such convenfence, leaving your Usn ily to dig the wood from under the snow ia winter, or use it dripping with water in summer? For feeding ami watering the stock, is it as convenient and labor-saving as it could be? The. aaia cribs should be a distance from the barn 'and stables, but for convenience for feeding there should be a place near the horses for a load or two of eora and oats for feedic?. Thers shook! be easy and safe bidders fbr ascending mows or stable lofts. ' Ilea and boys are seriously . injured .for Ufa by pulling themselves urj by their arms several times per day. There should ba a corner fbr beddin? for hor;cs, and a trap door for dropping it down behind the horses. If this is not the case, the difficulty of obtaining it in bad weather deprives the horses of, this comfort when they need it most. Every Hina should have a wheelbarrow, which any handy man can make himself. - A hand truck is convenient for hauling heayy articles, such as bags of grain, movinz stoves in the fall and spnng, pnd hun dreds of other purposes. A,ii.iht but strong skid for loading and unloading salt barrels, etc., can be made on a wet or leisure day, should Je in a convenient place, and handy when demanded. A rack should be made in the mout public room of the barn for hanging up forks, scoop shovel,, spades, idle halters, etc Aud thus, if the farmer will repair to to his barn and spend otherwise id'.e time in planning conveniences, ho wij find that he has no such time to hanz heavily on his hands. And these con veniences will make life pleasanter, the family happier, aud home the best placo to stay. What the Tariff Has Done. [Boston Com. Bul. It used to ba aa understood fact Ihat American cutlery could not compete with the SnefHeld (English) works, but a - protective tariiL has guarded the American workman, and all the table cntlery now sold here is of American make. An article in the Boston Jonrnal states that there is an Association of Table Catlerv Minufacturers, and they work to keep alt foreign cutlery from being sold in this country; whenever they hear of any such cnt lery having been imported they meet the price promptly. Thev are constantly devising improvements to the pood?, and, while these are copied by foreign mannfact-nrers, the fact remains that foreign goods ara excluded where they used to com mand almost the entire market. A gentleman from Sheffield, England, who was recently in a cutlery store in this city, acknowledged that American manufacturers hold tho market, and that cutlery is nowmada in England after American methods. We may also add that AtUeboro' jewelry is made in largi quantities for the French and German make's. Hon. ohn Bright, the great English, statesman, at a banquet, spoke of the greatness of the United States in ths fol lowing flattering manner: "Its population now has reacheTto 50, 000,000, which is nearly half or about half more than the whole population of Great Britain and Ireland at this day. , I have no doubt there are scores in -this room who, before they live to the a;?e I" have attained to, will live to see the day when the population of the Unilea -3tates will be more than double what it now is, and that it will pass 100,000,000 of people. . , , Young Folks' Corner.
