It will be seen that old ltoane has given ''our
Gus" an increased majority. This is gratifying
when we take into the account that a large
number employed upon the Railroad and - the
tsnage, wno Tiarc u& otj i tk; coun

come here regular built Locofocos. In this civ
il district, Van Dyke fell behind Henry twelve

Female Piety. The Gem of a!l others which
enriches the coronet of a lady's character, is
unaffected piety. Nature may lavish much on
her person the enchantment of the counten
ance the grace and strenght of her intellect
yet her loveliness is uncrowned till piety
throws around the sweetness and power of her
charms. She then becomes unearthly in de
sires and associations. The spell which bound
her affections to the things below is broken,
and she mounts on the silent wings of her fan
cy and hope, to the habitation of her God,
where it is her delight to hold communion with
the spirits that have been ranssmed from ti e
thraldom of earth, and wreathed with a garland
of glory. Her beauty may throw a magical
charm over many; princes and conquerors may
bow with admiration at the shrine of her love;
the sons of science and poetry may embalm
her memory in history and song, yet her piety
must be her armament her pearl. Her name
must be written in the "Book of Life," that
when the mountains fade away, ajLidevcrs me
mento of earthly greatness is lost in the gene
ral wreck of nature, it may remain and swell
the list of mighty throng, who have been cloth
ed with the mantle of righteousness, and their1
voice attuned to the melody of heaven. With
such a treasure, every lawful graification on
earth may be purchased; friendships wi'.lbe
doubly sweet, pain and sorrow will will lose
their sting, and her character wdl possess &
price far above riches life will be but a pleas
ant visit to the earth, and death the entrance
upon a joyful and perpetual home. And when
the notes of the last trump shall be heard, and
sleeping millions wake to judgement, its pos
sessor shall be presented faultless before the
throne of God, with exceeding joy and a crown
of glory that shall never fade away. Piety
communicates a divine lustre to the female
mind; wit and beauty, like the flowers of the
field, may flourish and charm for a season; but
like the flowers, those gifts are frail and fading;
age will nip the bloom of beauty; sickness end
misfortune will stop the current of wit and hn
mor. In the gloomy seasons, piety will sup
port the drooping soul like the refreshing dew
upon the parched ewth. Such is piety, like a
tender flower, planted in the fertile soil of a
woman's heart, it grows, expanding its foliage
and imparting its fragrance to all around, till
transplanted and set to bloom in perpetual vig
or and unfading beauty in the Paradise of God.
Follow this star it will light you through eve
ry labyrinth in the wilderness of life, gild the
gloom that gathers around a dying hour, and
bring yon safely over the tempestuous Jordan
of death, into the heaven of promised rest

Correspondence of the Missouri Republican.
Religion ix California. San Francisco,
April 22. The time ha3 been when religion
was scarce article in this country. It's better now,
and the moral and religious sense of the people
is improving everyday. The methodists have
their conferences, their circuits, their stations,
their preachers and exhorters, all over the coun
try. The Presbyterians, ever vigilant and in
dustrious, are in all the cities and towns, acquir
ing an influence and swaying the popular feel
ing" to a great extant; and the Baptists are e
qully industrious if not so numerous or influen
tial. The Episcopalians flourish in the cities,
where they have able ministers and the hand
somest churches; and the Catholics are pros
perous at the old missions in San Francisco and
and some other places. The American popu'a
tion complain of lack talent in this church a
mong the "Fathers." The emigrant need not
fear without his accustomed church privileges in
this country. The greater danger is that he
will leave his religon behind him. There are
several ways leading out of California to the
"great highway," of which we read in the good
The Methodists, Baptists, Episcopalians,
Presbyterians and Catholics, all have their
lines, which they say connect with the "high
way of holiness," and each line is furnishing
suitabl cares to accomodate the "travelers
to eternity," who start from California. Do
you see those plain looking cars yonder? That
is the Methodist train. The little noisy, strong
looking locomotive you see there is the "John
Wesley." It always starts off with a trcmen
duous load. The road runs meandering up and
down the rivers, across the praires, through the
woods, by all the towns, along all the settle
ments, past every hut, and to the very tops of
the mountains, and the trains stop at every
place for pasengers. The conductors are plain,
practical ami energetic men. The passengers
are zealous and enthnastie. When they start
off they give a loud, long shout, and you would
think "the kingdom of heaven suffered violence,
and the violent (were about to)take it by storm."
On their banner is inscribed "Religion in earn
est," and as they pass through the woods, they
make the welkin ring with the sound
"Bright Cannan! bright Cannan!
We are bound for the land of Cannan."
Yonder is the Enpti-st depot. Their cars
are stout, the seats uncushioncd, the conduc
tors exacting and circumspect, and the passen
gers numerjus an 1 pious. The train is drawn
by the "Baptisto," (a Greek work, to immerse.)
It i3 surprising how so small a locomotive can
take so heavy a train over such a rough road.
They have tunnelled "mountains of sin," and
bridged the hollows "iniquity," but water has
no terrors for them, and hence they plumb
through the "River Jordan"
"To Cannan's fair and happy land,
Where my possessions lie."
But sec there! Do you notice that beautiful
train of cars yonder, with handsome gothic
windows and velvet cushioned seats? Do you
see the surpilce, the silk gown, and the golden
cross? That is the Episcopal train. That
gorgonsly amounted and smoothly running lo
comotive is "Henry the Eight." It sweeps
over the solid T rail as if propelled by Eire
son's new "Moor." It is the most fashionable
and genteel train that runs out of California.
(The Unitarians are not fairly under weight yet.)
They take towards heaven a vast amount of
worldly wisdom, theological learniug and pious
gentility. It is supposed that St. Peter, Who
has the keys, is of opinion that the passengers
who come in these cars are his relatives and
descendants; albeit he dosen't like the name of
the locomotive "Henry the Eighth," in his
opinion, having been a great scamp.
The presbyterians, however, are doing the
best busiuess in California. They train the
mind, inculcate inflexible morals, have skilful
engineers, intelligent conductors, and well ar
ranged cars. They run through a hostile coun
ry; they come in contact with Sabbath-breaker3,
gamblers and drunkards, and pounce 011 the
"host3 of sin" everywhere. They are skilful in
a manoeuvre, and display superior generalship
in a fight. Their road runs through all the
towns, they have missionaries in all important
places, they have colpteures or runners on the
steamboats, beating for passengers, and Satan
himself cannot get up an enterprise without
danger of having a Presbyterian after him to
spy out his plans, and to borrow his thunder.
But listen those chimes the Catholic train is
about to start. Those old cars look as though !
they were made a thousand years ago anti- I
ciuated, dark, gloomy, rustv, but very stout old I
cars. Ihey run full, however.
See the crosses !
and Latin inscription, and see those "sister
bonnets. The more one looks around here the
more he sees to interest him. The road from
California connects with that old line from
Rome, which was started eighteen hundred
years ago, and is supposed to be the most direct
way to Heaven. It enters at the front door,
while all the other lines " climb up some ether
way." So thev say.
Monetary. At the East, we hae but little
change to note in the Money Market. The rates
continue at from 5 to 7 cent, for short paper.
Long paper is avoided, in view of the present
unsettled state of foreign affairs. Should there
be a war in Europe, the channel for capital
would be changed. Capitalists, therefore, pre
fer to keep control of their means. The Banks
are discounting freely for their customers; and
money is plenty, with no pressing calls.
While under the uncertainty of European ad
vices, money remains comparatively inactive,
the Grain Market is very animated, though
somewhat checked by the rapid advance in
freight, consequent upon the "war news;" for
should there be war in Europe, the carrying
trade will be confined to American shipping en
tirely, and the supply would not be equal to the
demand. The current, opinion is that there will
be no war at present, at least though the ad
vances made by Russia upon the Turkish terri
tory will need some explanation.
Foreign Exchange has fluctuated from 109
to 109 J, and at last reports the latter quotation
was being paid for favorite names -only.
The best class of Railroad Securities wore in
demand. Fancy Stocks are much depressed,
with little appearance to an immediate rise.
Erie has fluctuated some, and is somewhat
heavy under the recent changes in the a'dmini.
tration of the Company; but ii now held at 77 .
A decline is also noted in Cleveland and Pitts
burgh shares, attributable, we suppose, to the
construction of the Cleveland and Mahoning
Road, furnishing a more direct line between
the same two points.
. The stock of the Crvs'al Palace so'd on the
13th at 145, and on the 19th at IToQMZ
quite a falling off.
At the West, the Money Market continues"
easy. Street rates for good paper 8 to 10 per
cent. The Banks supply their customers readily.

The Virginia Corn Crop. The Richmond
Enquirer says the corn problem is pretty well
solved. In all the eastern portion of Virginia
there will be good crop. A regular succession
of copious rains since the first of the present
month has given the cornfields tlTe most vigor
ous and promising aspect. Early planted corn
is already beyond the hazard of dry weather.

An American Lady at the Court of St. James.

"I most unexpectedly received an invitation to
the Court Ball o'f Queen Victoria. It is the et
iquette of the court that no one shall receive an
invitation to attend the ball who has not been
presented at the preceeding drawing-room. All
my friends regretted so much when I came that
the last drawing-room had taken place, for not
even a Peeress of the realm could be invited un
less she had been previously presented. Will,
in spite of all this, your friend received an invi
tation, and attended the ball. I entered the
room in company with Mr. Ingersoll and suite,
and precisely at ten the glass doors flew open
and the Queen walked up a long line of noble
ladies, preceded by the Lord Chamberlain.
First came the Queen of England, and by her
side the Queen of Hanover, then the Duches3
of Kent and the Princess of Prussia, the Duch
ess of Cambridge and Princess Mary, the Duch
ess of Sutherland and the Maids of Honor.
Next came Prince Albert and the King of Han
over, the crown Princess of Prussia, the Duke
of Cambridge, the Prince of Saxe-Coburg, the
Prince of Saxe-Weimer and the gentlemen
lords in waiting, all passing on to the Throne,
upon which the royal personoages seated them
selves. The Queen is small, anil although not
handsome, she has a bright cordial smile
which lights up her face charmingly. She
dances with great grace and spirit and is as
unaffected as a child. Prince Albert is a splen
did looking personage, Lut now quite Lald; and
'The Lord Chamberlain was introduced to me,
and said as I was not presej'it at'the last drawing-room
I must be presented to her Majesty,
lie commanded a space to be made in front of
the Throne, and lords and ladies all stood back,
while I was taken up to her Majesty and pre
sented in a special uianver, in the presence of
the crowned heads, and the rank and beauty of
England. Her Majesty arose and greeted me
with a most cordial bow, while I made a low
courtesy before her, then to the other sovereigns
by her side, and to Prince Albert. When I
mingled again with the crowd it was amusing
to overhear the whispers. "Who can it be?"
"Oh, some one of great distinction, or her Ma
jesty would not have honored her by such a
special reception." At last an old duchess said.
"Vhy it is an pxtraordinary clever person from
America, who is treated quite like a queen in
her own country.''
'There were 2,000 persons present, and I of
all that number only had the honor of being
presented to her Majesty, 'Madame America.'
1 assure you the compliment paid me of such a
particular presentation soon made me the 'ob
served of all observers,' and the ball wa3 a
scene of enchantment to me. Just fancy 2,000
people, every lady iu the richest toilet, "glitter

gentleman in uniform or in court dress; then
the delicious music, the beautiful statues, the
splendid pictures, all made it a glorious specta

The compliment thus paid to Mrs. LeVert,

Sources of Comfort Comfort does not mean
merely warmth, good furniture, and good eating
and drinking. It means something far more
than this. It includes cleanliness, pure air, ci
der, frugality in a word, house-thrift and do
mostie government. Comfort is the soil in
which the human being grows not only phy
sically, but morally also. It lies indeed at the
root of many virtues. Comfort is in a great
measure a relative term. What is comfort to
one man would be deemed wretchedness by an
other accustuincd to nicer habits of living.
Even the commonest mechanics of this day
would consider it a misery to have to live alter
the style of nobles a few ceLturies back; to
sleep on straw beds, and live in rooms littered
with rushes; without glazed windows to their
apartments, ai!d these lit up m the evenings by
a pine torch, the wind carreering through the
dreary chamber. In respect to the elements of
substantial comfort, there can be 110 question
that the English people have made extraordina
ry progress during the last few centuries.
See the working man's cottage now what it
is. or what it ought to be. All tight and snug.
dry and clear; the floor swept and sanded; a
bright fire blazingin the chimney; a clean
warm bed to lie in; books on the shelf, and
flowers in the window; a home of contentment,
taste, and comfort. That is what every house,
even the poorest man's, ought to bo. But that
is not all. Where there is confjri, there is
contentment and absence of fidget. Comfort
depend as much 011 persons as on ' t'imgs.''
And it is out of the charter aad temper of those
w ho govern households that the feeling of ccm
f ut arises, much mere than out of hand some
furniture, warm logins, or any s' ri of home
luxuries and conveniences. Comfortable peo
ple are kindly tempered. That may ha set
down as an invariable condition of comfort.
There must be peace, mutual help, and a dispo
sitieai to make the best of ever.t'ying. ''Bet
ter is a dinner of herbs wher-? love is, than a
stalled ox and hatred therewith." Comfortable
people are persons of sound common sense,
discretion, prudence, and economy.
Thev have a natural affinity f r honesty and
justice, goodnc-s ar.d truth. They do not run
into debt, fur that is a species of dishonesty.
They live within their means and lay by some
thing for a rainy day. They provide for the
things of their own household, yet they are not
wanting cither in a proper hospitality and be
nevolence on fitting occasion And what they
do in the latter direction is dor.e without osten
tation or loud talking. Comfortable people do
everything in order. They are systematic, stea
dy, sftber industrious. You will never find
them in a bustle of tyding-up. As they do eve
rything at the right time, so nothing is done in
a hurry or "slobbered over." Comfortable peo
ple dress comfortably. They adapt themselves
to the season neither shivering in winter, nor
perspiring in summer. You will find they ex
pencl more on warm stockings than on gold
rings; and prefer healthy good bedding gau
dy window curtains. Their chairs are solid,
not gim crack. They will .bear sitting i;pon,
though they mav not be ornamental. Every
thing they have is convenient, sang, comfortc
ble, and you have pleasure in feeling yourself
iu the midst of them. Eliza Cock.

Position and Influence of the Jews. The ex
istence of the Jews is the living miracle of th
world. They are scattered and down trodden
and yet, according to the most accurate statia
tics, are as numerous as they were when they
left the land of Egypt, the returns made to Bo
napart giving about three mil ions. Expatria
ted, they become 'citizens of the world; and
wherever tolerated they commence trafic and
become thrifiy. Everywhere th-y are at home.
They may be banished, but cannot be expelled;
be trodden down, yet cannot be crushed. Only
in the United States, France, Holland, and
Prussia, are they fully citizens; but in spite of
British statutes, the Russian nkas and Turkish
curse, they prosper still. The great nations of
antiquity, the Egyptians and Assyrians, thd
Romans and Saracens, a3 well a3the modem
Turks and Christians, have attempted to de
stroy them, but in vain; while penal. Iaw3 and
cruel tortures have only served to irfyeaae theif
number and reinforce their obstinacy.
But the Jew3 exist not only as a monument
and a miracle: Jewish mind has exerted a pow
erful influence on the world. Favored by Na
poleon, the Heprew race at once developed pow
er which had never been suspected. Soult, Neyf
Massena, who thus altered his name from Man,
nassah, to escape the odium, of being an Israe
lite, were all Marshals of France under the eyd
of the greatest warriors of his age. In politics
the Jews have Metteniich in Anst ia, D'lsracl
in England, a convert to the Christian faith,
while the Autocrat of Russia has had a Jew
forhii confiJcnt;al counsellor, and Spain a
Prime Minister of the same .race, and Russia,
her Minister of Finance. In the United States,
Jews begin to figure in our national councils;
Mr. Y'ulee, late member of the House, and Mr.
Soule, recently Senator from Louisiana,, being
of the Hebrew tck. Mr. Ciemitux, one of the
most eminent lawer3 of France, was what we
should call Attorney General upon the flight of

dozen Jews can do more to preserve the peace
of Europe by sitting behind their desk, and
prsisitingly saying No! to the royal applicants
for money, than all the Peace Congresses and
Conventions in Christendom. The Rothschilds,
the Barings and Sir John Mon'.efiere, are all
Jews, and with their banking establishment
scattered over Enrope and Asia, weild a sceptre
more powerful than monarch.? hold.
Coming to the literary profession, and inquir
ing into the lineage of many of the most dis
tinguished scholars and men of sceince, we find
the Jews prominent I ere as w ell as in acitiv
life. The most renowned in Astronomy hae
been the Jews, as the Ilerschels, in England
and Arago in France, the Astronomy royal un

Death of Dr. Ehcard-t. A telegraphic dis
patch announces the death, at the Virginia
Springs, of Rev. Dr. Justin Edwards, of Audo
vcr, Mass., aged about 66. He has filled many
responisble stations and is widely known as the
author of the able Documents and manuals cu
Temperance and The Sabbath, and the com
ment, on the New Testament. He had carried
the Comment on the O.d Testament to tho
Xinetetnfi Psalm, on which the last word h$
wrote were: "Men must die and leave many
things unfinished; but God lirts. His cause
exteids, and by susch instrumentalities as ho
s'lall raise up, will utimately triumph." Dr
Edwar Js was a graduate of Williams College
for many years wrs the pastor of a Congre
gational Church in Andover at a subservient
period was Prcsideut of the Theological Insti
tution in the place, and, of la e kal retired
from puble official functions. He was a man of
great energy and equal integrity. X. V. Trib-
The ancients exalted domestic afiection into
a household god, and one of the most beautiful
antiques now preserved, is a gem representing
the draped figure of a woman worshiping this
deity, as it kneels upon a pedestal. Croly
wrote the following sweet lines upon it:
Oh! love of loves! to thy white hand is given
yjt earttuy Happiness thegolaen Key!
Thine are the joyous hours winter's even,
When the babies cling arond the father's knee. .
And thine the voice that on the midnight sea
Melts the rude mariuer with thoughts of" home,
Teopleing the gloom with all he want to see.
Spirit! I ve built a shrine; and hast come,
And on its altar closed: forever closed thy plume.
