Much lius been written iihnut woman's
love, but we doubt If that "glory of a wo
man" wns ever m forcibly expressed In a
few words as iu the follow big stanzas :
Come from your long, long roving,
On the wit so wild anil rough;
Come to uio tender and loving,
And I slmll bo blessed enough.
Where your mill have been unfurling.
What wind have blown on vour brow
I know not, and ask not, my darling,
So that you come to me now.
Sorrowful, slulul and lonelv,
Poor und despised though' you be,
-All ai nothing, If only -
You turn ti oiu the tempter to nc.
Of men though you bo nnforgiven,
Though m-ietbe unable touluive,
I'll pray till 1 weary all heaven,
If you only come back alive.
WOMAN'S LOVE. Miscellany.
The true lady is unmistakably
recognizeJ, though not so easily
described. She shows in her eve
ry act, a dignity, a grace, a purity
which vulgarity canntt hope to
counterfeit, nor the most irrever
ent fail to admire. Whether 6he
be found in a hovel or on a throne,
there is that in her character which
will inspire respect, and render her
position unassailable. Cassander
linding Olympias, the mother of
Alexander, an obstacle in his ap
proach to the throne of Macedon,
which his ambition coveted, sent a
band of assassins to put her to
death. But when these hardened
wretches found themselves in the
presence of this daughter, wife and
mother of kings, such was the lof
ty majesty of her mien that they
could not raise the arm to strike
the fatal blow. With such a de
fense every lady is supplied. Vil
lains who have long revelled in
crime as if it were pastime, will
stand abashed in her presence.
Like the fabled Una, she will move
m her armor, purity, unharmed,
amid all that could contaminate
and all that could imperil.
We may not, as we have said,
describe a true lady; but we may
name a few of the characteristics
by which she is most prominently
distinguished. First among these
is genuine refinement, both of sen
timent and manners. This will dis
play itself in the tidiness of her
household arrangements, in the
neatness of her dress, and in the
elegance ot her language. Many
a shrew, indeed, keeps a house
with scrupulous nicety; many a
woman, without one attribute' of
the lady, dresses with brilliant
splendor and boundless extrava
gance; many a virago uses lan
guage so utterly refined that she
will employ the most lengthened
periphrases to avoid a vulgar ex
pression. But in allfliese instano
es there is little danger ol a mis
take. We can tell the home of a
lady, almost as soon as we have
put foot on the threshold. A wo
man of truly refined tastes will
make herself known as such even
to a casual observer. She will im-
art to the simplest details of her
lousehold arrangements touches
that will proclaim her appreciation
of the beautiful. All things will
bespeak neatness and comfort, but,
in nothing will there bo seen ef
fort at display. Her dress will al
ways bo so appropriate to the oc
casion, or so becoming to her sta
tion, that it will appear well,wheth
er it be of calico or silk. Her con
versation will be chaste, but not
falsely modest She will never
(brink from speaking right out in
good plain English anything that
ought to be spoken at all. She
will never think f saying very
wicked things in French or Italian
and never think their unbecoming
ness lessened by this use of anoth
er tongue.
The lady is always unostenta
tious in her manners, avoiding rath
er than courting public observa
tion. She is polite to all; not that
6tiff, cold politeness which makes
its object feel quite a3 unpleasant
as rudeness would do, but that gen
uine politeness which springs from
a beneficent heart. There is in
her none of that supercillious pride
which causes some to treat with
disdain those who are more plainly
dressed or less highly educated
than themselves. On the contrary
her deportment toward those who
are inferior to. her in -wealth or po
sition is especially kind, without
being oppressively patronizing. It
is her first aim to render all who
come under her influence pleased
with themselves. This . tact will
enable her to do without either
falsehood or flattery. Many a bash
ful young man who, in general so
ciety, is silent to the point of stu
pidity, has been surprised at find
ing his timidity entirely banished,
and his tongue loosened ,into a
ready flow, by the potent spell of
an elegant lady, with whom, for
the first time, he has" ventured to
converse. Such great power can
be exerted only by'those who have
brilliant intellects as well as noble
hearts; but the desire to make oth
ers happy exists in every true lady.
. Hence she will be actively be
nevolent. Whatever good she finds
to do, she will enter into with all
the energy of her nature. Her ef
forts will be made -without the
sounding of a trumpet; but they
will not, therefore, be the less ef
fectual in the accomplishment of
their ends. Wherever she finds
one suffering under the lash of ad
verse fortune, or under the far more
cruel tortures which slanderous
tongues inflict, she finds an object
ol charity, and Hies with ready zeal
to succor and to save. Even the
"one more unfortunate," who comes
like the Peri at the gate of Eden,
with tear-bedewed face and heavy
heart, begging to be admitted to
society, receives from her words of
encouragement and hope. The en
terprises which aim at ameliorat
ing the condition or elevating the
dignity of her sex, she supports
with willing heart and ready hand.
But, however deep an interest she
may feel in extending schemes of
benevolence, the true lady will
never forget her home or neglect
her duty to its inmates. She will
never, like Mrs. Jellaby, render her
household a scene of confusion
and misery, in order that she may
benefit, the savages of Booriabola
Chah. On the contrary, if she be
raised to the sublime dignity of a
wife and mother, she will deem her
husband and children the mosU
precious of her jewels, and feel
that in them she exhibits to the
world the noblest results of her
labor,and the worthiest monuments
of her virtues.
Not only is she benevolent in
deed she is likewise charitable in
her opinions.
She is not given to slander, to
jealousy, nor to envy. In the pet
ty intrigues for social position and
advantageous matches, she takes
no part. Though not haughty, nor
unduly proud, she is still too proud
to contend with the vulgar and
groveling about matters which
seem vastly momentous to their
little minds. If assailed, as she
very likely will be, she moves
steadily on and lets the slander die.
The tenor of her life proclaims her
purity. She needs no other de
fense. The shafts which calumny
would hurl against her, fall at her
feet as straws thrown against the
corslet of a steel-clad warrior.
But it would require a book in
stead of a newspaper column, did
we attempt to portray the true la
dy in all the fullness of her beauty,
majesty and glory. Much as we
delight in the theme, we must for
bear. We have said enough to
show that the character is too bril
liant to be very frequent. In truth,
the genuine lady is much more
rarely found than we could wish.
Numbers who have many of these
elements are led astray by a' de
sire to follow the silly fashions of
the world. Others, who have a
great desire to be considered lad
ies, are mistaken as to what is nec
essary to constitute that character.
If our remarks shall inspire any
one with a higher appreciation of
this highest type of womanhood, or
beget a desire to attain to its ex
cellences, we shall feel abundantly
repaid for all the labor it has cost.
[The Ladies' Home.
In 1790, Bailey Guard, aged two
years, came West with his parents
from New Jersey, who settled near
North Bend, Ohio. The infant is
now an old man of seventy, and
has ever since lived in the vicinity
of that place. A few days ago, his
birthday was celebrated, there be
ing present four sons and three
wives, twenty-nine grand-children,
and six sreat-grand-children. The
old gentleman is still very vigorous,
and sits on a horse erect as a ramrod.
In Boston a lady .expected the
return of her husband, thought 6he
heard him, rushed down stairs in
the dark, saw a man, embraced
him, hugged him, kissed him a
light was brought and he wasn't
her husband. He was John, Mary
Ann's the hired girl's own young
man. Mary Ann wasn't pleased,
neither was her mistress.
[The Ladies' Home. He Lost His "Marier"---A Steamboat
A funny scene transpired on
board the steamer "St. James" on
her last trip down. The uSt.James,"
he it known, is a favorite boat with
vd(ling parties, on accountof the
superior accommodations and the
general elegance, which distinguish
her. At Aberdeen, a young man,
dressed in his Sunday's best, and
showing in all his movements that
thi was the happiest day of his life,
came aboard leading by the hand
a tjmid young woman, who had
sworn that very day to love, honor,
eti, the young man aforesaid.
iney were on wedding tour to
Cincinnati to see the Big Bridge,
the Nicholson pavement, and oth
er objects of interest. Approach
ing clerk Begnicr, the young man
steeped in bliss said: "Look a here,
Mr. Clerk, IandMarier have just
doubled teams for life. (''Marier"
blushes some more, and tries hard
to draw away, but the other . half
clings to her.) We've determined
to take a day to ourselves and go
to Cincinnati. Now, we want a
(hesitating) a room well, a
room (with desperate energy)
both together."
Bride, ( reproach tully ).--" Josier !"
Bridegroom Stoutly, "That's
what I say, and we want the best
room you've got on the boat."
The clerk disposed of them satis
factorily, and "Marier," blushing
more than ever, retired to their
8ta;te room, it being late in the
niiht, while her 'Josier,' lighting a
ciiar paced the forward cabin with
Ihl importance which every young
man feels when he first assumes
reaponisbility of paying a young
woman's board as a consideration
for her changing her name.
Josier at length concluded to
6eek his "Marier." Accordingly he
directed his footsteps toward his
stttte room
Softly he tapped at
mat state room door-but no
response from within fell upon his
listening ear. Then he gave a
louder tap, and, applying his lips to
the-key- hole, whispered shrilly,
"Marier, open the door to your Jos
ier! Still no reply. He turned
the handle, and the door being un
locked it opened readily.
He advanced one foot inside,
gave a look of bewilderment, and
then rushed back into the cabin
in a state of frenzy, exclaiming,
"Stop the boat ! she's gone ! over
board, may be ! Captain ! Oh,Mr.
Clerk ! were's my Marier I" By
this time Captian Oakes, backed
by his clerks, Begnier and Ross,
and reinforced by the passengers
generally, was on the spot.
"What the deuce is the matter ?
said the Captain.
'Oh, Captain 1" said the distract
ed bridegroom, tearing up and
down the cabin," she always a tim
id gal was afraid of gitin mar
riedgone crazy and jumped over
boardwhy didn't I git two rooms?
-Oh, dear!"
He then pointed at the state
room in which he had expected to
find his "Marier."
4Why,it's empty,'said the captain
"Yes, said Josier, tearing his hair
"and don't you see the outdoor's
open ? She went crazy, I tell ye,
and jumped overboard.' Then fall
ing upon the Captain, he screach
ed"Oh, give me back my Marier?
At this moment a state room
door adjoining opened, and there
was a glimpse of a snowy nightcap
while a low, sweet voice said :
"Josier, you fool, what you tear
ing 'round at that rate lor ? Have
you been drinkin'?'
"Josier' gave a yell of astonish
ment and delight, and put himself
inside of that state-room door in a
twinkling. He had made a mistake
of the number of his state-room.
Why the Best Flour is Cheapest.
Two dollars extra on the pi ice of a
barrel of flour will secure a much
superior quality. "Any one who
will devote a little observation to
the subject wid notice that with
poor bread people eat from three
fourths to one-half more butter
than they do with that which is of
suprior or extra quality. If we
reckon three-fourths more, it will
be seen by the calculations the
preceding item, that S2 saved in
the price of flour involves $5 62
more expenses for butter, or for
other condiments to make the poor
er bread palatable.
"Sammy, Sammy, my son, don't
stand there scratching your head

no progress in life." uWl y, lather,'
replied the hope, "I've often heard
you say that the only way to get

admirable adaptation to the sea

There are getting to be more

conversation. The point which
they arrive at with little difficulty,
except to their husbands, is point

an eye to the great wast when they
are very snug with the lace.
Brandy and Brains.
Judge Quay, the temperance lec
turer, in one of his efforts, cot ofl
the following:
All of those who in youth ac
quire a habit of drinking whisky,
at forty years ot age will be total
abstainers or drunkards. No one
can use whisky for years with mod
eration. If there is a person in
'ho audience before me whose own
experience disputes this, let lu'm
make it known. I will account for
n, ot acKnowieuge that i am mis
taken. A tall, large man arose, and, fol
ding his arms in a dignified man
ner across his breast, said:
"I offer myself as one whose own
experience contradicts your state
ment." 'Are
you a moderate drinker?"
said the J udge.
"I am."
"How long have you drank in
"Forty years."
"And were never intoxicated?"
"Well," remarked the Judge,
scanning his subject closely from
head to loot, "yours is a singular
case; yet I think it is easily ac
counted for. I am reminded by it
of a little story. A colored man,
with a loaf of bread and flask of
whisky, sat down to dine by the
bank of a clear stream. In break
ing the bread, some of the crumbs
dropped into the water. These
were eagerly seized and eaten by
the fish. That circumstance sug
gested to the darkey the idea of
dipping the bread in tho whisky
and feeding it to them. He tried it.
It worked well. Some of the fish
ate of it, became drunk, and float
ed helplessly on the water. In this
way he easily caught a great num
ber. But in the stream was a large
fish, very unlike the rest. It par
took freely of the bread and whisky
without any perceptible effect. It
was shy of every effort of the dar
key to take it.
He resolved to have it at all haz
ards, that he might learn its name
and nature. He procured a net,
and, after much effort, caught it,
carried it to a colored neighbor,and
asked his opinion of the matter.
The other surveyed the wonder a
moment, and then said: 'Sambo, I
understand dis case. Dat fish is a
mullet-head. It hain't got any
brains.' In other words," added the
Judge, "alcohol effects only the
brain, and, of course, those having
none may drink without injury."
The storm of laughter that fol
lowed, drove the moderate drinker
suddenly from the house.
Take care when you buy, that
you are not 6old.

Pious Lotteries.
There appears to be quite a re
vival in the lottery business just
now, the object in many cases, be
ing purely charitable commen?la
ble.notwithstanding that the whole
system in this and other Stated is
illegal. The Supreme Court of the
United States has just decided that
the Federal Government has the
right to collect a tax from lottery"
keepers, wherever they find that
business in existence, without any,
regard to the fact whether the bu
iness was legal under the State law
or not. The lottery business, ' if i
did not originate in tho churches,
certainly received its greatest im
petus and encouragement from
them in the numerous "fairs'whicJi

Institutions. People verv natural
ly fell into the belief that what was
moral in the church could not be
immoral out of it. Thus the lotter
ies have assumed more or less ot a
pious aspect, which accounts, no
doubt, for the fact that Mr. Tilton,
of the Independent, a strictly re
ligious newspaper, has established
a lottery, through which he oilers
prizes of a Stein way piano, and
aChickering piano," and various
other valuable things, for the larg
est number of subscribers procured
by agents for his paper, Mr. Tilton
has the reputation of being the ri
val of Henry Ward Beecher in re
ligion, ofGiceleyin politics, and
and the rival of both m devotion
to strong minded women. His
new lottery speculation would go
to prove that he can beat them
both on the main chance, and that
ho is quite alive to the spirit of

Jl i.n:3 a Western darkey, land
ing at Chicago, and seeing an ad
vertisement notifying those who
who wished to be clean that they
might get a bath for a quarter,
thought it would be a good idea to
ask the use of them of another dar'
key, who said, "Baths were used
by white folks to wash in." Acr
codingly Julius started with a bun
die under his arm, and being shown
into a bath room, was left to his
ablutions. Considerable time elaps
ed, and Julius did not come forth ;
and waiting for about an hour, the
keeper of the baths went to the
door and screamed. "Hallo! ain't
you ever coining out?' "Yes, as
soon as I get troo my washing."
"How long will that be?" "P'raps
an hour to an hour and a half,' cool
ly answered Julius. With that the
man burst into the room, and there
all around the room, was the dar-key'sfreshly-washed

bathing man by surprise, 'Td like
