We are all- to blame, t In the first place it ' was :a foolish quarrel : about a few pounds of . tea and suga:r. a You thought he ought to have saved some .'of his best articles for you, because .you had spoken for them .before their arrival; ' andj be cause he did not;,. we; felt ihurt,: and charged him with showing partiality toward-: his ' wealthier customers; and when he; denied the charge, you gave him to understand .that .you did not. be lieve him; : that you did not forget what you had said some time beiore; and you know that must have been provoking." "Well, but- Jidn't I know?. Didn't Shawitell me that he heard Smith say that he wished he had more of that su gar, for that I ought to have some of it; but that he always filled out .

"Yes I know.we have had one" thing here and another thing there, and pe6pe have not been at all backward in encour aging us in Our course toward Mr. Smith. Sometimes I wish we had never listened to a single thing told us about him.'' If is hard to believe tnat ne jias slandered us, as we have heard; and it is hard to feel that we cannot place confidence1 in those ' who . told us. No doubt it has been the' same with one side that it was with the other.' 'They have said hard things about us.' " We have done the same by ' them until the foolish little quarrel , nas grown into a serious diffi culty, and the first cause is almost for gotten in the throng of bitter Swords, cold looks and galling acts ot un kindness which have followed. ' I'll tell you what I think. " In the first place, Mr: Smith ;. It was very natural for us to resent it; but IT .wish, ,now wes neve had. But what's done can't be undone. You told him what vou though t not, however, till you had told several others. and heard things to aggravate the case. Then, you; know, you did not keep your temper very well, , Mr. Smith got, angry, tooaad made some, very unkind remarks. We felt injured,, and cherished a .foojish pride in letting people see that we could show proper resentment when abused Then other people , stepped in not to make peace, but tpiden the breach and we set down everything that came to us as true, often magnifying some slight remark; into, a hideous lnuendo. . And so, you see, we are to blame very much so. We are all erripg creatures; not one of Us but has faults, and it seems to. me that we ought to consider our own frail ties when we feel inclined to censure contention that comes iu our, way, but just pass it by; and think nb more about it." . 8'3tesy.es-ypijrtiri rightj a'nswered the husband, "but the plague of it is, if Smith and I go to, talking matters over, we shall just ake a circle, and jeomeVight round to' the starting poihi, ana1 neither of us will own that we were' wrong iri the first; place:" '!i I kn 6w-j ust iiow 5i? will- b. It is of no use ;to talk' it over;' it will just be a raking up ot all. the .troubles from first to last, and such affaits are just like a coal fire the more you stir it the hotter it grows." r . : . . :t . - . "Let the fire, alone, though, and it will smoulder away, and die out of itself. So, with-" this' trouble"; let it'gd. Say to them, let by-gones be by-gones, and just drop the matter entirely, and begin where we left off, : forgetting that any thing of an unpleasant nature has hap pened. Come,, now,, what do you think of it?" - - -, - Mrs. Jones adjusted her collar, and smoothed her hair with her hands, as if preparing .for a start. Mr. Jones sat dbwn,rIaid nis left fdosoter hiC- righ't knee and leisurely picked the Jint from his trowsers, gathering it in ' little pinches, and, carefully dropping it be tween the andirons, for they sat before a cheerful s wood ( fire. He was in some thUig' oi j aJquaridary iiPri.de)anii Con science were, struggling, for the mastery in his heart;' at last he said: "Blame me if Jt want to haS'e it . go all oyer the vil lage that I acted the penitent, and Smith the magnanimous judge, who listened to my humble suitand. granted a merciful pardon." ' , i'Nbw, John," said the wife, "which is really . the most magnanimous, to '. ac knowledge a fault or forgive one?" , It seems to me to be .the most easy, natural thing in the world, to forgive an erring friend when be .takes, 'the place, of a pen itent. ' But I know that the proud heart struggles long andafJly(witlr;.itself when ft'feelsathe justice and the neces sity of acknowledging a fault; and when it has achieved this victory, it seems to me that it has won higher honors than when it has obeyed its natural impulses, and runs over with forgiveness and ten der compassion towards a penitent., We ought not to allow a drea of the scoffs o village gossips to deter us from our duty ..Let us do what fwjllf please God and eyerytruly -good person. Let us set our own hearts at restr"and feel thit whatever others say or do, we will do right, p Better be sneered at for a gppd act than condemned for a bad one." ' L-ttWell," said the tailor, "I wish it was all over.. I do feel dreadtuUy awkward about going over there under the circum stances. -But come! : We can walk along down that way, and if we do not want to go in, can take a stroll around and come home' again'.'' : , Thev were soon equipped for their walk, and locking the door behind them. passed through the narrow, yard and stepped into the'stret; It was a. clear Autumnal evening. The moon shone brightly, and lit up the streets of the village with a , soft, mild radiance, and an aipBg upon tbe 6ide,walks lay little jpatchas of quivering light and 'shade, I where the moonlight and theBhadows of ' the over-hanging tree-boughs danced to- ireioer. w iue uiusig vi.vub ..c'8u" "( I can; imagine, j ust how everything looks around the old homestead, now! said Mrs. Jones, in a low, subdued tone.

Oh, how many times Mary and I have repeated that as we walked together, up and down thvnwf at Qm itr yhfen we were happy school girls.'. Oh, what visits we used to have; what secrets we confided to each other, andhbir we vowed eternal constancy! We .migWiiave been very foolish and sentimental,, but we were certainly very happy. Xt does not seem . possible that we have been es tranged so loner. How little we dreamed, that when we were" married and settled down in the same village,, that months would pass over our heads without an in terchange of kind words and loving smiles. Oh, it seems to . me to-night, that'vI can never entertain an , unkind feeling toward an old friend again. Evervthins seems so holy" and calm around us; why must there be such tur moil and strife within? But isn't that Mr. and Mrs. Smith we are going to meet?" "Yes, it is! Let us speak to them as if nothing had ever happened. Good evening! . said JUr. Jones, extending nis hand toward Mr. Smith Good evening!' echoed .his Vrife, grasping the hand ot her oidscnooimaie, and putting up her lips for a kiss. . Mr. and Mrs. .smith gave a little start of! surprise, and betrayed a little em barrassment of manner; but there was nothing of coldness in their answering salutations,' and that there might npt be an awkward pause after the greeting, Mr. Jones added immediately. ,"A fine evening', for a walk!" We have been SDeakintr of vou. and thought some of calling f at your house before we went home!" ' -T "Indeed! Well, we will turn back, then. ". We were only out for a walk. lHary, dear,' Mr. 'and Mrs.' Jones were thinking of calling on us. Let us walk with them!" ' '" K-! ' : c j : i r; 'Certainly! Susy has just been tell ing me." '' And so they walked through the streets together;' As they proceeded they met a few villagers, who stared af ter them, as if to assure-themselves that their eyes saw clearly; -v Long before our little party reached their destination the report was 'going throiighi the : village that 'Smiths and Joneses had uiade up, and were good friends again Jl' I domot know how they would have managed to have filled up the awful pause necessa rily occurring between their: meeting in the street and their arrival at Mrs. Sm ith's house, had it' not been for "the weather," that dear old friend who has - helped so hiany bashful people; awkward pairs and dull companions to a topic of conversa tion;' but,i some .-how; they contrived to make the time pass easily,, if not pleas antly; and were at last seated in the par lor before a "cheerful coal : fire..; Hats, gloves" and shawls, -were laid aside, arid then there 'was a moment of hesitancy on the part of. each, and each; dreaded anembarrassingstate of things; but Jones had "screwed up his courage, " as he was wont to express himself,' and he was not the man to back out now; sp -without waiting for any one-else te open, he be gan:' ; .J;w.' t-. ;:.! ,. ;-.! v.-! ; ' "MrV and Mrs.' Sihit'hi my "-wife and I nave been talking over matters tO-night, and thinking pf the estrangement that ex ists between1 bur families, and we have come to the conclusion that it Ts as wrong as' it is unpleasant for us. to live as we have' been, and that thbre 'is rid need of this state of things continuing l'We ; feel that there has been wrong on both sides, we know that we; have been1 very much to blame, and what was at ' first but a trifling affair,' has been' magnified and ad ded to until we have become widely es tranged. .

I am willing to do so. I know that I have said aggravating things and. cher ished unkind feelingsTWe, too, were talking of- this difficulty to-night. It seems to me a good omen that our minds met upon the same topic. Here is my hand, Jones'. You're a good fellow, a little hasty, like myself sometimes, but such people like each other all the bet ter, it they do tall out occasionally: '' There was a warm shaking of hands in token of friendship; the two women were already sobbing in each other's arms, There was mutual, forgiveness, and re union of hearts, and the good old times were lived over &rain; and it was long af ter the village was hushed in repose be fore the friends separated. Peaceful Wore their' slumbers that night; . their dreams were undisturbed by the taunts of self-reproach, or the demands of neg lected duties;.' '' :, Years have since glided away: but the two families have never allowed anything to occasion a quarrel between them. They have been tempted and tried with each other's failings. Meddlers have of fered their . assistance in misconstruing and exaggerating; but they remember a bitter lesson, and their motto is, "Pass it by!" ' -V. ; '..

Sir: Your letter of the 3d inst., has been received. I am truly sorry that you should con sider anything in my last letter person ally discourteous or insulting to you,. Certainly such was not my intention, nor do I believe that the letter, in whole or in part, can with fairness be so' con strued. ' ( - r .' It was due .as well to yourself as to those I represented, that, in withdraw ing the invitation previously given to you, I should inform you plainly of our j jmtmti&tr, nfb J tLtjujfJtetter in no' degree removes or i diminishes the force of those reasons., . ,, -; It was not generally known in this community that you were connected with the N.iY. Trilune, and the fact of such connection assumed a significance in the light of recent events, which caused open expressions of dissatisfaction.' . ,, ;. ,. -And when, in addition to this, you in form me that you "hold the opinions of Washington and Jefferson on the sub ject of slavery," your partial editorship of the Tribune indicates a positive sym pathy with its doctrines. Washington and Jefl'erson were great, but human; they lived and died before the subject of slavery had been thoroughly discussed in view of Scripture and reason, and above all, they died before modern Ab olitionism had commenced its pestilen tial career. . ; Washington's opinions in favor of emancipation were moderate, and, in his time, not objectionable; but Jefferson went much farther. If it be true that you, a scholar and a writer, do now m I860 hold with Jeffer son, that "the whole commerce between master and slave is a perpetual exercise ofthe most boisterous passions, the most unremitting despotism on the one part, and degrading submission on the other," and, in view of slavery, that you "trem ble for your country when -yjou reflect that God is just; that his justice cannot sleep forever; that considering numbers, nature, and natural means only, a revo lution of the wheel of fortune, an ex change of situation probable by supernat ural interference," and is among possible events, that it may become that "the Al mighty has no attribute which can take side with us in such a contest" if such be your present sentiments, then you cannot be surprised to find that you will not be a welcome visitor' to a Virginia community. As to your lecture on Humboldt, I have never heard it, and as it has not been published in full, J have of course not read .it., ; But certain extracts from it, and statements of parts of it.havo-ap-peared in the papers, the Tribune among others, the accuracy of which you have not, within my knowledge, denied. One of these represents you as saying that Humboldt rarely attended Divine service, and , that he possessed an unbounded scorn for much that is called religion: that his religious nature was perhaps too deap, to find expression by' such meth ods; that in a conversation with yourself he uttered a satire upon clergymen, and to this, certain remarks of your own are added, from all of which, others beside myself had inferred that you vindicate and approved Humboldt's religious be lief, although it was Deism, and not a simple faith in the Scriptures as divinely inspired Whether such be your real sentiments your own conscience only can decide. , I pretend not to judge you, but I am bound to draw my own inferences from the indications apparent, and I re gret that nothing in' your letter removes these unfavorable impressions. : ( f You conclude with the strong words, "Yours for free thought and enlightened Christianity." In a proper '.sense,' I unite with you in desiring tl ings; out tne very iorms ot your ex pression remind me that with many at the' North "free thought" has degenera ted into "free thinking," or infidelity, and culminated in 'free love," and that they have sought to "enlighten" . Chris tianity by holding up in the face of the Sun of Righteousness the smoking taper of their so-called "higher law." For such "free thought and enlightened Christianity" I am not, but I am Yours for Constitutional Liberty, and the Christianity of the Bible. ! ' - - R. R. HOWISON. -: ,1 , MR. TAYLOR S REPLY. , '- Vtica, N. Y., Feb. 30, 1R60. Sir: I acquit you of intentional dis courtesy, though my own standard ; of good breeding would lead me to omit such insinuations of infidelity, spiritual ism, and free-love as you have seen fit to apply to me; From the tenor of your letter, I am not so much surprised that you should see nothing insulting in the attempt to subject a free man to censor ship, not only of speech but of thought. It astonishes me, nevertheless, to hear from you that Washington's opinions on Slavery were contrary to "Scripture and Reason" that Jefferson, if now living, "would not be a welcome visitor to a Virginia community" when I find, in a history of Virginia,' written by yourself, thisdeclaration: "The last and most important Cause, unfavorably affecting Virginia, which we shall mention, is the existence of Slavery within: her bounds" -and also this: "We apprehend that, in general, the people of Virginia hold Slavery to be an enormous evil, bearing with fatal power upon their prosperity." Allow me to ask whether your history was written by the light of "Scripture and Reason." : 1 t The notices of my lecture on Hum boldt, to which you refer, do not cor rectly represent my expressions. I said "he possessed an unbounded scorn for the meanness and inconsistency of many loud-mouthed professors of Christianity," and also repeated a remark of his, satir izing unwort hy "clergymen. - I neither stated, nor do I believe, that he was merely a Deist. It is useless to recapitu late my remarks, because they referred to him alone. I trust I have too much good taste and good ' sense, to intrude my own religious views into lectures which are listened to by members of all Christian sects.

Chicago, Journal. : Feeding Cattle. .'.'It's better to feed cattle two or three times a day in winter." , ' j Three times. For when cattle are turned into good pasture, they soon eat their fill, and then lie down to chew their cuds. This they will do from three to five times a day, if the weather be cool and the flies do not troubletheml When left to take their own, course in the mat ter, they act according to nature's teach- g. Jiy this we may learn that they require feed at least three times a day. It led but twice a day, they must either be fed so that a portion of food will be left lying before them after they are sat isfied; or, if fed only as much as they will eat up clean, they must suffer in convenience from hunger before the next feeding time. ; Cattle, when fed more than they ' can eat at once, leave" the coarser portions, and will not eat until pressed by want. Better feed five times a day than but twice.. Cleanliness and regularity are indispensable, let the teedT ings be few or many. M. Garntey. t.-r A Climllenge.

Never, j say never! ' Wrangling in jest and put ting on an air oi lll-hunior merely to tease becomes earnest in practice, Mark that! Next promise each other sinc-erly arid solemnly never to have a secret from each other under whatever: prtext, with whatever excuse, it might be. -.1 You must continually, and every , moment see into each other's bosom. Even when, one of you has committed a fault wait not an instant but conless it ireely; let it cost tears; but confess it - l,i ..- y. :': ? ..:- 'And as you keep nothing secret from each other, so, on the contrary, preserve the privacies of house marriage : state arid heart, from . father, mother,; sister brother, aunt and all the world. lou two with God's help build your own quiet world; every third or .fourth one whom you draw into it with you will torm a party and stand between you two.. That should never be. ; Promise this each to the other. Renew the vow at each temptation. You will find your ac count in it.: Your bou1&; will grow as it were, together,-and at last, will become as one..
