I bad just returned after ten years' absence in tbe West, and of course, found many changes even in my coun try home. There was a new birdhouse on the barn-top ; there was a new wood shed built on to the old kitchen ; there was a handsome carriage drive in place of the old uneven road and narrow foot path which lod from the ample gate around the hospitable side door, with its pleasant piaza, covered in summer by creeping vines, and in the winter by the loveliest enow drapery ; tho vine resting for support and giving form if not color to the flakes as they fell. I think I never saw anything so pretty. Inside the old homestead the changes were even more apparent. Dear grand mother's seat was vacant, but I could seem to see tbe venerable form, the sweet, pale face with its lovely blue eyes and serene brow, crowned with the softest, prettiest silver hair you ever saw, still occupying it. I saw her then, just a? when I parted from her, with a smile i n her lips, though tears were in her eyes, as she bade me a theerful "Good-by, and God bless you, my love." I turned and looked back as I left the door, she had already taken up the little writing desk, my patting present, and commenced writing. I knew after wards what she was saying on that white sheet. "flow shall I thank you enough, my darling, for this beautiful gift? It will be one of my ohief comforts in your absence, for it will constantly remind me of your love, and of my duty tc you. You have just left me, and I am soothing tho pain of patting by writing you a letter I God only knows when and where we shall meet again." My father had grown old, and my mother moved silent and less bustling in her ways ; my sistors had changed from merry school girls into sober, qniet young ladies ; ray brothers were away to college, or etigaged in business in u neighboring city ; and the front chamber was changed into a nursery for Ellen's new baby. A swoet little girl of four years old would ofton stand near grandma's chair, leaniug her head upon the cushion, and there was a curious resemblance betwoon the old face banging in the gilt frame above it, and the fair baby one beneath it, and I felt that iu nature, as well as in name, we had a second Tirzah. The old clock in the corner tloking tho same psalm, and the grand old olm just in front of my window seemed to mo the only things quite unchanged in and about tho farmhouse. "And my school girls, whore are they ?,' I interrupted, as my sister Lois, was giving a detailed account of Mrs. Oerow's new mansion ; tho splendor of her carpels, the size of her mirrors, the number of her tenants, being the wonder of tho village. "Where are Helen Morris and Susie Joioe ? Surely they do not know of my arrival, or they would have oa'led ere this." "Mercy on me, Sister Kate!" exclaim ed Lois, "didn't I write you that Helen was married six months ago to Oerowe; and dont you know she is tho vory ono that I am telling von about? Hois Orcesus, and an aristooratic as a prince, to Helen and ho aie well matohod yon know." "And Susy?" "She was married, too, about the same time, and lives in H , tho next town to ours." "And is her husband rich, too?" I asked with some anxiety, for she was wy favorite pupil, and I could not boar t he thought that she should grow out of that sweet, simple girlhood into a proud lady of fashion. "Oh, my' no," answered Lois. "Her husland is well enough, very pleasant and interesting indeed I think an ar chitect ; poor I believe, at bast, far frouricb; you netd not be afraid of her being spoiled by ease, for Bhe has a host of little ones I hear, and of course she is dragged to death." I was always a great band to take quiet walks by myself, and also to drop into a friend's boupe to make a call without ceremony ; so, when after a long ramble the next day among my favorite haunts of olden times, I found myself near the stately mansion of of James Cerowo, Esq., I deterermined to waive etiquette, and call first on my former pupil. She received me very cordially, a little stiffly perhaps, consid ering our past relations, but quite in keeping with the elegant appointment of that magnificent drawing-room, and her queenly presence. Helen was an aristocrat by nature, as Lois had said, and wealth and art lad added their treasures to perfect her character a3 such. Susy, on tho contrary, was per fectly simple in all her tasts and habits. I used to call them "Josephine and Maria There s." "The one," as Napo leon said, "the perfection of nature, the other of art" Some oi these tnoughts passed through my mind as we sat there chat ting of what had transpired since last we parted, and then I asked, "Have you no children, Helen V "Yes," said she, warming a little "I have one child ; Jane," she said, in answer to her bell, "bring Master James to me directly." "Then you have only one?" I in quired again, as the young gentleman delayed his appearance. " Only one, I am most happy to say. Neither Mr. Cerowe nor myself are fond of children, and one is quite enongh in our family." Jamie here came in, a bright intelligent-looking boy of five years, but he seemed to lack the gayety and impul sive childishness I so love. He walked demurely up to his mother, and al ed her to present him to me with a for mal little bow, and a stiff "Very well, I thank you ma'am," in answer to my in quiry for his health. There was, however, a certain look in his dark eyes I did not like to see, of constraint and watchfulness, as in fear of offending, When his stately mother left us a moment to order lunch, I took the op portunity of questioning the little man on his plays, his tops and marbles and his balls. He looked at me with astonishment in his dark eyes, and said, "Mamma don't allow mo to play with those noisy things ; I build houses with blocks, and have wax dolls to play with ; only rude boys have balls and bate and marblop, mamma says." His mother returned in time to hear his remark, and added, "I desire to make my love a gentle man even now ; there is no need of so much noise and dirt as most boys make. There is my old friend, Susy Joice, you remember her, she has a perfect flock of little ones about her suoh a noise and clatter as they make I She has just had another added, I believe, mak ing four ; poor thing, how I pity her I" Mr. Oerowe came in just then, and I was of course presented to him with the remark, "My former excellent teacher, mv dear ; Mis H ," and re ceived a bow from the gentleman so magnificently stately that I felt myself turning to ice, and believe I returned it with equal solemnity, and a dignity quite surprising to myself. After our elegant, but to me most distasteful lunch was dispatched, ltook my departure, with a feeling of intense relief, and a sense of thankfulness that this splendid mansion had no power to hold mo within its walls ; although I would gladly have lingered under the noble row of elms beneath whose shade I walked to the marble gateway, and I pitied from my vory heart the ohild de barred from childhood s own pleasures, and I folt sure that he would some time burst his barriors, and perhaps luxuriate in hurtful and pernioious ones, bring ing sorrow and shame into those hearts where he, if any one, must have a place. " But Susy," I thought, "poor child I must go at onoe and see hor ; fnll of care as I know she is, overburdened I fear, still I am sure of a welcome, hearty and full, from her ; perhaps I may be of some holp and comfort if she is oast down - she nsod to lean on me so much." I took an early train the noxt morn ing for H , and roachd there while it was yet vory unfashionable for a call. "Only half-past seven very likely their broakfast hour ; well, no matter," I thought. "Susy will excuse the eager noss of her old teacher, and I oan roturn on tho ono o'clock train if I choose." A brisk walk of flveminutos brought mo to tho pretty oottage, which a passer-by had told mo was " Mr. Lorri- mors, for sure he built every stick of it himself, ma'am," and softly opening tho gate I stopped to the front door, and there paused. " Such a noise !" a Mrs. Cerowo had truly sai.l. The windows were open, but the blinds were closed, and merry voices rang out clear and sweet and fnll of innocent mirth that bright summer morning. "Oh, Harry, Harry, you will surely kill poor papa ; pity, pity, you young rogue, I say !" and amid tho shouts and tumbles I hardly dared touch the door bell ever so lightly. In an instant there was perfect silence, however, and a pleasant, merry eyed Bridget ushered me into the parlor so different from Mr. Cerowe's but so like Susy simple and neat, yet elegant. Only a moment bad I to observe it all, for my Susy s loving arms were about mo, and her tears of joy wetting my cheek. " Hero, Harry, Harry, come in quick and see her ; you know quito well, I am sure, who she is." " I must be very stupid if I do not," said Mr. Lorrimer, advancing and grasping my hand most cordially, "after hearing her name mentioned and her many perfections described every day for the past six years." " And I may hope that it has not proved that familiarity breeds con tempt," I retorted. " Contempt, my dear madam ! rather love, reverence, thankfulness ; for my wife constantly assures mo that all she is she ows to you." "And your children, Susy," I said, " how many have you, and are they all well?" "Four, dear, and such darlings! Here, Harry, my love, come in, and see mamma s old iriena ; ana win you bring in Walter and Frank, Bridget, as soon as you can make them decent." Harry came up to me at once, with such a sweet, frank face and earnest manner. "Are you my Aunt Esther?" he asked. "Yes, darling," I answered, delighted to find my name a household word. Presently the little ones came in, fat and happy, just from baking splendid dirt-pies and mud houses in the back yard. " I cannot keep them quite clean all the time." said Susy, with her old de precatory manner when excusing her self for any lack of what her stately friend Helen deemed indispensable to etiquette. " They must play, you know, and I won't punish them for soiling their aprons, only for being naughty and wilful. And my baby you haven't seen her yet" as if she had treated mo with injustice to deprive me of the pleasure so long ; " come up to the nursery and see her sleep." Mr. Lorrimer kept mo a moment from this happiness to assure me again of his pleasure in meeting me ; and, as of course I should spend the day with them, ho would dine early, and return in a carriage and take me and Susy back to B in the evening ; and then ho said, " You may bid your friends good-by for some time, for I am sure Susy will never let you off without a long visit." Susy had preoaded up stairs, but flew down again to give an order for dinner, as she said, but as I could see, more to give and receive the parting kiss. Then we went up stairs. 'I hope, my doar, you like my hus- and," sho said ; " because he is the best and dearest in tho world ;" and having utterod this complimentary eulogy, sho opened the door of her paradise. " Here she is 1" And with a illuminated face she looked down upon her lont and best treasure her baby. " I thought," she said, as she touched her lips to the velvet cheek, "that I was happy enough before, but this one 1 my own little girl my only daughter sometimes," she continued, tears filling her eyes, we fear it cannot last long we seem too happy for earth. There is our friend Helen Cerowe ; she has an elegant house and ground, and drives snob a span of splendid horses, and is so rich, but oh, dear I her husband is well, i won't say anything about him, only ho is so cold and stiff not a bit like Harry. And then, she has only one ohild , how I pity her ! Largo iron ore deposits af almost un precedented richness havo ,lately been surveyed in Lapland by practioal min ing engineers. The district is near tho village of Judkasjaryi, in Swoedish Lap land, about ton miles from one'of the arms of the West Fjord. Analysis shows 70 por cent, of metallio iron in this oro, and the quantity is said to be sufficient to supply the entire world with iron, at the present rate of con sumption for many years. A most remarkable disoovory has been made in tho Sweetwater country, in Wyoming Territory.

"Is it true," inquired a reporter of Postmaster Pearson, of New York, jot terday, "that there are nearly $2,000, 000 in tbe United States sub treasury, representing accumulations from un paid money-orders for several vcars back V "Yes," replied tho postmaster, "I suppose that in round numbers they hold about that amount", belonging to careless persons whom it is impossible for us to find," "What do yon propose to do with this money, Mr. Pearson ?" "Congress will probably be asked at its next session to make tome disposi tion of it." "Why was this not done heretofore V" "Well, there is no legal limitation to the time when funds of this character may be accounted for. The postmaster cannot tell when the parties to a money order may correct fatal mistake in the order and demand their money, You know we must always bo prepared to pay on legal demand." ' Can you give me a genen.l idea of the way in which such large, unclaimed accumulation of money comes about?" "Primarily it is due to a lack of knowledge concerning the operations of the law under which the money-order system is organized. Then a great many people who understand the pro visions of this law are habitually care less and overlook some of the necessary details in making out the order. For instance, they may get the name of the payer wrong, or they may neglect to notif; him by mail. Then, again, tbe person to whom the money is sent may be a traveling man, who has left the town where the order .is payable and who may never roturn there again. No legal provision has been made for advertising for these people. The individual amounts which go to make up the large sums of unpaid money orders in this office are, generally speaking, small, and no doubt havo long been forgotten by the persons who sent them, as well as by the persons who were to receive them, AU post offioes which do a reasonably fair share of money-ordor business have the same trouble to contend with, but some day or other Congress may definitely settlo postal responsibility in the mutter." The Anatomy of an Oyster. Every oyster has a month, a heart, a liver, a stomach, cunningly devised in testines, and other necessary organs, just as all living, moving and intelli gent creatures have. And all these things are covered from man's rudely, inqusitive gaze by a mantle of pearly gauzs, whose woof and warp put to shame tho frost lace on your windows fir winter. The mouth is at the smaller end of the oyster, adjoining the hinge. It is of oval shape, and though not readily seen by an unpracticed eye, its location and size can be easily discov ered by gently pushing a blunt bodkin or similar instrument along the suifuce of the locality mentioned. When tbe spot is lounu, your doojuu can do mrusi ue- tween the delicate lips and a consider able distance down towards the stomach without causing the oyster to yell with pain. From this mouth is, of course, a sort of canal to convey the food to the stomach, wheuce it passes into the intestines. With an exceedingly deli cate and sharp knife you can take off tho " nuntle " of the oyster, when there will bo disclosed to you a half moon shaped space just above the muscle, or so called heart. This space is tho oys ter's pericardium, and within it is the roal heart, the pulsations of which are readily seen . Tho heart is made up of two parts, just as tho human heart is, one of which receives the blood from the gills through a network of blood vessels, and the other drives the blood out through arteries. In this important matter tho oyster differs in no respect from other warm or cold bloc." id ani mals. And no one need laugh icredu lously at the assertion tha'; oys rs havo blood. It is not ruddy, according to tho accepted notion about blood, but it is nevertheless blood to all oyster in tents and purposes. In tho same vioi nity, and marvellously proper positions, will be found all tho other organs named. But it is very proper to bo in credulous about that mouth and organs. At first glance it would seem that they are utterly usoloss, for tho mouth can not snap around for food, and tho oyster has no arms wherewith to grab his dinner or lunoh. True, apparently, but only apparently, for each oyster has more than a thousand arms tiny, doli oate, almost invisible. And oaoh one of them is incessantly at. work gather ing up food and gently pushing it into tho lazy mouth of the indolently com fortable creature. A party of lynchers, after hanging robber at Socorro, New Mexico, dis covered that two of their number were mounted nn stolon horses. An imme diate trial resulted in conviction, and two more bodies wero quickly suspended. P0IT1.1R SdE.U'E.

As at least one-third of our liv is passed in our beds, their arrangement and furnishing is a matter of no snail importance. The new steel spring bed is, of course, the bed of the fu'.urs. Fulfills every intention of flexibility; it is durable ; it goes with the beds . sad, as an actual part cf it, and it oar. never be a nest or receptacle of cenragio'. or impurity. On the subjeot of bed clothes the points that have most tc be enforced are that heavy bed-clothing is always a mistake, and that weight i'i nr true sense means warmth. The t.gl.t down quilts or ooverlets which we coming into general use are the g. eat est improvements that have been u ade in our time in regard to bed-clot les. One of these quilts takes well the p ace of two blankets, and they cause m ich less fatigue from weight than hyer upon layer of blanket covering. The clothing must be regulated according to the needs of each individual ; the body under the clothes must ne;ih'jr be too oold or too hot; but it is beltjr to sleep with too little than too m ich clothing. The position of the bed in the bed-room is of moment, The loot of the bed to the fire-place is the best arrangement when it can be carried c nt. The bed should be away from the dc or, so that the door does not open upon it, and should never, if it can bo hell ?d, be between the door and fire. If he head of the bed can be placed to ' he east, so that the body lies in the line of the earth's motion, I think it is tho best for the sleeper. The furniture of t he bedroom, other than the bed, should be of the simplest kind. The chairs shonld be uncovered, and free from stuffing of woolen or other material ; the wardrobe should have closely- It tiug doors; the utensils should iu ve closely fitting covers ; and every thing that can in any way gather dust shot Id be carefully excluded. A Sod Tale from tho Sea. Mrs. George L. Hunter, the wife of Capt. Hunter, of the schooner Thomas J. Lancaster, which was wrecked north of Cape Hattoras, has returned home to Philadelphia widowed and chil("'t having left the bodies of her husband and three children buried in the Noi ih Carolina sands, near tho burial place if four seamen and the second mate. T'd hi(h up ia the rigging of the L&ncasti , while the strong vessel was pounding herself to pic cor, Mrs. Hunter saw bar infant ohild torn from her arms by the sea. winch had only a moment before swallowed up her husband and his eldest daughter, and still clinging, w t and nearly frozen to the mast, the heart-broken woman heard above the roar of the sea a plaintive, sobbing or, Mamma, oome save me," which told her that one child still lived. Through twelve hours of wind an 1 rain and dark ness Mrs. Hunter battled against the ropes which obstinately saved her li: e by fastening herself there out of reach of the storm and of her ohild, who died even after suooor oame, and the five survivors of the ill-fated ship wete brought to land. When the captain's body was found, his pookot had been robbed of $75, which he had secure! before leaving tbe cabin when the vossel struck the reef. The poor woman was thus left destitute, but not frien I -less, for she met kind assistance fron Lioutenant Newcotnb, of the Unite 1 ntates army, and keepor Midget, of the lifo -saving station, who made her ss oomfortablo as it was possible to do in that uncivilized place. Like a beautifnl flower, full of eoler but without soont, are the flno bot fruitless words of him who dojs not ac t accordingly. A Tea Cultivator Wanted. The manager of a largo tea farm in India appeals, through the Nairi American, to American inventors for what we may call a spadiDg machine, i to in- used in tbe cultivaiion of tea plants ; the machine to be worked either by bullock or steam nower. The tea bushes on the estate in our correspondent's care are mostly planted four feet by four feet apart, in plots eighty plants broad by four hundred and twenty plants long ; a few acres are planted four feet by five feet and five feet by five fect, in fields of the same length and breadth. Many tea gardens however, are planted five feet by five feet. The tea bush grows from three to four feet high ; it occupies about a square foot of ground at bottom, and at top spreads so that the lines of bushes almost (sometimes quite) touch each other. The nearest approach in America to a tea field, our correspon dent think, it, ft plot of gooseberry bush 98, wl-i'.h somewhat resemble the tea jushes, r:ichs the thorns. In gen eral aspect an ordinary cotton field might be compared, we imagine, to a tea field ; and possibly a machiuc suited for, the cultivation of the one might be readily adapted for use in the other. The iudiz tea fields are dug by bpd ftuiu tvrclrc to fifteen inches deep, the ntpei PTjr'iwTo. gru, eU-, being turned over O't buried rui tho subsoil brought up to tn-.' tan, A day's work for a cooly i. to dig on: Hue across a field, or 1,280 ir.ajv feet. Tho ordinary plow will not answer for this work, bh it loaves one side of the bushes unculti vated ami cuts ta roots of tho busbcB on the other. The horso hoe or culti vator has been tried, but it does not cut deep enough, it does not turn the soil over, and it injures the outer stems of the bushes. What is required is a r-.chine work ing a blade or blades set at right angles to the handle, with an up and clown motion, and so operated as to turn the soil over. It must dig to a depth of fifteen inches and turn the soil thor oughly. It must dig close to the root of tho plant, yet not injure the side stems ; and it must be aMe to do much more work than a cooly can do - say ten or twenty times as much, when drawn by a bullook or by a fixed steam engine working with wire ropes. A machiuo of this character, able to compete suc cessfully with cooly labor, both in cheapness and efficiency, would bring our correspondent thinks, a small fortune to the inventor, "as there are upward of a thousand tea gardens in India hard up for coolies and looking out for something of this kind." A 91,500,000 Diamond Found. From all accounts the wonderful Koh-i-noor, "Mountain of Light," tho prop erty of hor majesty, is eclipsed by a re cently discovered diamond lately found in South Africa, and now in the posses sion of Mr. Porter-Rhodes, who is, I believe the fortunate discoverer of the gem. The weight of tho newly found stone ic 150 carats. It is uncut, but from itp peculiarly favorable shape is not expected to lose more tuan ten car ats during the process. The diamond is as big as a v ry large walnut, and is described as "liko a hailstone in sun light, oi a bewitching transparency and brillient whiteness no other precious crystal can vie witii." Most Cape dia monds are of an 'zferior yellowish tinge, which detracts from the value of the stont s ; but this specimen is not only the 'argost ever discovered, but of a purity unsurpass-Ml by any of its com peers. I understand that tho stone was recently shown 'o the Prinot of Walos at Mailborongh House, and that his host diamonds, when placed beside the Porte' Rhodes stone, were seen to bo "off color.''
