For the benefit of nu anxious pub lic, I> George Washington Greene, depose and state As follows: That, on tho night of the 22d of February last) I nttendcd n meeting of the mem bers of the Utopinn Club, and thnt there and then many pntriotic speeches were made and toasts drank and the 'rosy* circulated freely. Lato in the evening a gentleman, evidently thoroughly acquainted with geography, arose and slightly leaning upon the back of his chair, to add to the grace of his posture, proposed, in a voice husky with emotion, 'The Uni ted Stntcs of America?bounded on the North by Canada; on the South by the Gulf of Mexico; on the Fast by the Atlantic, and on the West by the Pacific Ocean.' And that this .stu pendous toast was received with great enthusiasm by the club, nnd that ever}* glass was instantly emptied and every voice raised in acclamation. That immediately thereafter a mem ber with a bald head and philosophi cal face, and whose iuitials arc G. W. G., arose and said; 'Gcntle-meu and U-lophinns, I endorse the sentiments of the preceding toaster, but, in my opinion, his toast was noi sufficiently buttered; iu fact he hits confined our great country within .such narrow limits that 1 already begin to feel cramped lor room, and gcn-tle-men; with your permission I propose an amenclmert/ This was greeted with prolonged applause and cries of 'The amcti'dmen tP 'Give us more!' etc. The sage of the Utopian then pro ceeded : 'The United States of Aineri ca; bound cd on ,hc North b}' the Nortli j Pole, on the South by the euth Pole; on the Fast by the Rising, and on the West by the Setting Sun i V That tre ri ndeus excitement cn su. d, nnd that the members, ail that were able, arose and gave three I imes thrcc, nnd that ore the echoes had ex pired, a young and ambitious man who had apparently been suffering from colic or a desire to be heard, leaning across the middle of the table, ga/.ed into vacancy, and addressed it thus, while all the eyes that were not dosed in meditation were aimed at him: 'Gentlemen, with all deference to the distin-guished (.hie) Utopians who have spoken, I must (hie) express myself dissatisfied. In /act. no Ameri can citir.cn has ever (hie), in my opin ion, properly eonccived the extent of hia country, and therefore I (hie) feel it my duty to propose an amendment to the last!!' With strong emphasis, and in the midst of complete silence ?the Utopians being filled with awe at the very thought of the unknown vastness of their land?Gentlemen !' then recommenced the young man, speaking slowly and solemnly, an d heightening the effects of his words by a peculiar sound like the feeble popping of a cork?a sound which, I confess, he emitted with great frequ eucj' and skill, 'our magnificent coun try is bounded on the north by (hie) the Au-ro-ra Borca?s, on tho south by the (hie) processions of the Equi nox-cs, on the cast by Ancient (hie) Chaos, and on the west by the Day of Judgment! !!' 'That then no sound was heard, other than a feeble pop ping of corks by several members, and several other members were so much overcome by tho sublime nature of the boundary that they Rank exhausted beneath the table; others wcro uncon scious in their scats. That then the deponent arose io depart, but even'he staggered under the awful character of that boundary as ho wended his way to his hotel on Union Square, while the hour of twelve boomed forth from St. George's. And further, that ho was much sur prised at beholding a throng of men and boys about the steps of tho hotel, apparently deeply interested in the remarks of a noble looking man, who spoke with a lisping sound in conse quence of the loss of 801110 of his tront teeth, and whose form was clad in the uniform of a general officer of the last century. Approaching, I recognized the Father of our Country, and instinc tively glancing towards his equestrian statue at the southern end of the square, I saw that the horse was .rider less. That then I was deeply impress ed by the grandeur of the scene, the beauty of the clear winter night and tho delicate moral lesson conveyed by the moon, which like a faithful deb tor, was paying back its borrowed silver to the earth. No sound broke tho stillness but tho strong, sad voice of George Washinton speakiog these words: 'Fellow countrymon, I am permit ted to revisit the scones of my earthly greatness. Again 1 am permitted to gaze upon your vast metrcpolis, ah, how changed from what I knew it; but as I gaze a feeling of snduoss fills me, for I know, though you have many advantages over my contempor aries, though you are more than forty millions, though the natural sciences light you on your road to wealth and power, though your marvelous inven tions, your railroads and steamboals, your sewing machines and telegraph tuny save you labor and comfort your existence, your breach-loaders and rifled cannon make you feared iu war; still I would not I e happy among you. I should be despised by your business, laughed at by your politi cians and wondered at by your pub lie because?/ aamot tell a lie." Theu I thought his earnest eyes rested upon me. I attempted to as cend the steps to tako the General by the hand and give him my card, when a sudden discharge of fireworks from the gaslights at the sides of entrance startled me and I sat down and closed my eyes. When I opened them George was on his bronze horse and the crowd had resolved itself into a policeman who assisted ine into the hotel. ?, No Time to Read. We have ofien encountered man)' who profess to believe they have no time to rend. Now we think of it. there have always been men of such characters, the points of which arc easily summed up. Nine times out of ten they arc men who have not found time to confer any substantial advantage either up on their families or themselves. They frequently spend whole days in gossipp'mg, tippling and swapping horses, but they have "no time to read." They sometimes lose a day asking advice of their neighbors; sometimes a day in picking up the news, tho prices current, and the exchange, but these meu never "have timo to read." They have time to fiddle, to drink, to?do nothing, but "no time to read." Su-h men generally have uueduen | ted children, until) proved larms, and unhappy firesides. They have no energy, no spirit of improvement, no love of knowledge; the}r live "unknow ing nnd unknown," and often die un wept and unregrettcd. He Woum n't Go?A farmer the other day was walking around the central market in Dctro t, trying to find some chap willing to go into the country and do a little work for good pay. when a colored man accosted him asking: i "Boss, docs j'ou want s omc one to husk corn ?" '?Yes; I've been looking all the morning for some one." "What's de pay ?" "VM givo a dollar a day.'' "And board ?" "Yes." "And chickens au' pudding for din ner?" "Y yes." "An' Havana cigars to smoke?" "I?I guess so," stammered the farmer. "An' a coal stove right close aroun' dar whar dc corn is?" "No, I never heard of a Btove in a corn field." "Well, if dar's no stove out dar you can't coax dis chile along. Izo ?ot to take care of my health, even if cro isn'ta bushel of com raised iu dis country." Train od Journalist, Mr. A. Marschalk, who is about to start a newspaper at Cartersvillc, call ed the Planter's Advocate, was literally born in n printing office and cradled on an old-fashioned press. Ho told us the tale as related to him by his parents. He is a man near fifty years of age, an excellent and well educated printer and ;a reliable, truthful man. He bays fifty years ago his father was a poor young man, just married, and had got hold of a little typs and an old press of the mos* primitive kind and got a little room to put it up in. His wife lived in the office with him, did the cooking and washing there and helped him at the case and press. He had no other assistance, and very little furniture, one bed, a couple of chairs, a skillet and oven, arid a little table furniture. Airs. Marschalk's confinement!.was rather premature, and the infant was wrapped in its .addling clothes and laid upon the bed of the j/ress, as there was nootlur place to put it. The boy was raised up a printer and received no educa tion whatever, except from his parents and the types. He sny3 his father had forty-eight subscribers aud four exchanges. % Tho subscribers paid mostly in provisions, and th c family relied upon ; tho legal advertising ol the county- and an occasional job for money to buy their clothing and pay for house rent, and yet they got along first-rate, and the Marschalks were useful and valuable members of soci ety.?AVirnmn, Star, A WiFivd Pow ii.?A good wifo) is to a man, wisdom, strength and courage; ab d. one is confusion, weak ness and 'despair. No condition is hopeless to a man where the wife possesses drriiuess, decision aud econ omy.' TheYo is no out ward propriety which can counteract indolence, ex travagance and folly at home. No spirit can long endure bad influence. Man is strong but his heart is not adamant. He nee Is a tranquil mind; and especially if be is an intelligent man, with a whole head, he needs its moral force in the conflict of life. To recover his composure, home must be a place of peace arid comfort. There i his soul renews its strength, and goes forth with renewed vigor to encounter I the labor and troubles of life. Hut if at home he finds no rest and there is met with bad temper, jealousy aud gloom, or asfuilcd with complaints and censure, hope va nishes, and he dinks into despair.

What requires more philosophy than taking things as they came ? Parting with things as they go.
