Millions have lost their good eyesight from tiou observance of this simple rule. It is fuuuded on scientific principles which we will not take room to explain at length. The liht direct upon the ejes contracts their pupils, u that not euough rajs are admitted from the print ed Jag or fabric sewed, to make them plain to the night. Alw) wt txt that tU liUt froiu tVe viodow or Lamp abnll fall over the shoulder, usually over the left one as it will not then be obstructed by the right hand iu sowing. Another advantage, and a great one, i, that when facing th light, oue naturally inclines forward to save the eyes. Thi cramps the chest and lungs, and is injurious to the health ; but with the light from the side, or over the fchoulder, one inclines to sit in a much more upright aud health ful position. Every one who follows this suggestion, will find it conduce to comfort, and good vision. FtMALe Labor. Every year females sre taking a more active aud' extensive part ia the industrial enterprise and the number and condition of those at present employer! in each branch of business would at once deeply interest business men and astonish our readers. There aie thirty -eight thousand more females than males iu New York, and thrice or four times that number are depeudent on their owu labor. " has beeu lately stated that not lesbV.an three thousand of these are engaged in the manufacture of hoop skirts alone. Of the oe hun dred and fifty thousand school teachers in the United States, over one hundred thousand are females. Mauy of the New York establishments, like Stewart's and others, each employ eight hundred and oue thousand women iu manufactur ing articles of feioale dress. lai case or oCRitAX. lue case o John U. Surrat was taken up in the Criminal Court at Washington, on the 13th inst,, and his counsel made a long argument ta support of the motion to admit him to bail. Chief Justice Carter held that be had. the right to grant the motion, but aail he, could not dv so. The ease, he stated, was a most important one.' It embodied in its features a grave offense against' the public, and would be, whoever committed it. . The Chief Jus tice said it was eounected with 'an .at tempt to destroy the government, or one of the details of that attempt, although out of season for that purpose. : It, nevertheless, was one of the entailments of an attempt not only to destroy per sonal life, but the life of the nation, and in that point of view it rises to great gravity, and should be treated with great judicial circumspection. He must, there forefjvcrrule the motion and remand the prisoner to jail for trial at the June terra of the court. Surrat's counsel said during his statement that they had re ceived nothing for former service in the prisoner a behalf, and expected nothing herauM he had nil mean, the nrnrwrtit - 1 - r 1 left by his mother being nearly or quit covered by debt. . r ' A Malc "Modiste."

Desirous of giviug to our enterprise a distinctive character, and believing that the men who were immediately con nected with the fortunes of the Confed eracy are the most proper persons to faithfully and actively forward it, we have restricted member-hip of this asso ciation to those who were uiu the Con federate service, or who left their homes to identify themselves with the Confed erate cause' It will also afford to this clans opportunities for that iutimate social iutercoune which its members so naturally desire to culiiva.e amonjr them selves, and it will unite iu peaceful asso ciation the comrades who braved to gether the hazards ot battle.

We earnestly appeal to'our comrades iu every part of Kentucky to orjrnuize " divisions" of this association, and aid us in the prose cution of the good work.

The Ohio State Journal says: "We shall expect to find Grimes, Fessenden, and Henderson delivering eulogies over the grave of Wilkes Booth for having given us a ruler this immaculate Saint Andrew." TbejNew " York Tribune inquires, " Willis Mr. Trumbull's guerdon for defending the President ?" Ihe Tribune prefaces this tuoiiry by telling how large a fee Judge Trumbull recently re ceived for arguing a law case. The New York Sun says " there is a woman iu Mr. Henderson's case." Mr. Henderson is reported about to be mar ried." The Philadelphia Bulletin says of the Republican Seuators in favor of acquit tal : " These men take up their burdens of infamy and clothe them-clvea with their eternal tihatae without a shadow of ex cuse. They have been bargained for, higgled "over, weighed, and measured. and valued, aud,fiually paid for and de livered to the purchaser as coiupletc.Iv ana unreservedly as was ever the lowest .- - wretch who is dragged from the gutters of tbe Fourth Ward to. the polls, and who casts bis vote for a drink of whisky. It will be found that more than one of them has been bought with actual money. selling their miserable souls and consci ences for so tnany dollars. There are others no less base and treacherous, who hikve sold themselves to their own fpite. Froje dav when these men reverse theif Irn principles and tbe solemn veroVv"2 tne people, men will begin to teach their children these names, as they teach them the name of Benedict Arnold, and they and their prostcrity will long in vain for au oblivion that would blot out the record of their infamy from among men."

The whole record of hutuan affairs sadly illustrates and repeats the old fable of the wolf and the lamb. Iu Christian aud in Pagan countries in the past aud in the present the his tory of nations is but a practical asser tion of the maxim that " might is right." . Whether inflicted by force of arms or through form of law whethef by. the sword or by majorities it has been the invariable practice of the powerful-blue n. press the weak, it needs but tb flint sieet pretext and tbe pretext is never wanting. We are sometimes inclined to think that the world, Iike.men, grows worse as it grows older. The Indian who scalps his enemy does not add to the cruelty of tbe deed the hypocritical pretense of brotherly lore. ' When he subjects his captive to the process of slow torture he does not profess to be doing it for, the sufferer's good. t It remained for civilized, humanized, and christianized nations to add to the ruin and destruction of their victims the insolence of assumed mortal superi ority and the exasperation of pretended charity. If there be one thing which more thau another can tempt a man to curse his better angel from ffls side it is when the provideuce of God has delivered law into the bauds of saintly tormentors.

Or all the ex traordinary delusious of our time, the delusion that Sir Morton Fcto was ever a a.a tf Uuiiilcs wealth i tLc aw.t notable. The truth is, that he was a power in the financial world, not aecount of his property, but on account of his debts. His creditors were interested ia his success, and he was seat over here by them to shift, if possible, his debts on to American shoulders, or to get up here p excitement as to the value of his American investment., which would re act on Ergland and enable his creditors to negotiate his stocks aud bonds iu the London market. We remember to have ben told, by a financier, of mere than ordinary cooluess and astuteness, that he knew Sir Mortoa to be worth at least JC1 1,000,000 sterling. It turns out that the leases of Lis credit ors including those who are creditors by being stockholders in the groat Eng lish road he mismanaged will ataouut to about that sum.

Oue cent loaves of wheat bread varied from sixteen to 5'J ounces in weight, ac cording to the price in grain. Wheat was three cents a bushel in 12S. The law fixed the price of two pullets at .f eents and a fat Iamb from twelve to eight cents, according to tbe season ef the year, 1299. In 1313 Parliament fix ed the price of s fat ox at about twelve dollars: or. if corn fed. at eighteen dol lars; a shorn sheep, at oue dollar and twenty-five cents; and eggs at three ceuta a dozen; and other articles of breadstuff!, ' etc.. continuing atthe prices given above. 1307 the best wine cost five dollars a tun. Wheat was thirty-seven cents s buhet in 13170, and this was deemed a famine price by the historians of that period, who designate that year as the "dearth year." In the time of 7enry VIII, beef and pork settled down to a cent a pound, aud veal at a cent au l a half. 3 piuts of milk was sold for a cent. TLv best of it was that these prices were fix e'd by law, and so placed out of the reach of speculators, though the people grum bled at these enormous rates, as they thought then, as they do now. These prices are reduced for convenience from sterling to federal money. Ttie Story of' tbe McI6nou;Li Will.

For mauy years before hia death, he Used to rub his hand will, glee, aud his handsome face would brighten up with pride andself-gratiua-tion whenever he referred to that great instrument, which was to carry Lin down to remote posterity the benefactor of his age.
