Sitdkdat, Octi 9, SU1I dismal weather.
Our household, being composed of children
and j oong peQple, is generally a cheerful ono
enough, even in gloomy weather. Tor a week
past we hare been especially gladdened with
a little seamstress from Boston, about seven
teen years old 1 but of such a perils figure
that, at first view, one would take her to be
hardly in her 'teens. She is very vivacious
and smart, laughing and singing and talking
all the timer-talking sensibly j but still, tak
ing the view of matters that a city girl natu
rally would. If she was larger than she is,
and of less pleasing aspect, I think she might
be Intolerable J but being so small, and with
a fair skin, and as hcalthv as a wild flower.
she Is really very agreeable ; and to look at
oer lace is nice Deing snone upon by a ray or
tho sun. She never walks, but bounds and
dances along, and this motion, in her dimin
utive person, docs not give the idea of vio
lence. It is like a bird hopping from twig to
twigandchlrpingmemlj all tho time. Some
times she is rather vulgar, but even that works
well enough into her character, and accords
with it. On continued observation, one dis
covers that she is not a little girl, but really
a little woman, with all the prerogatives and
liabilities of a woman. This gives a new as
pect to her, while the girlish impression stilfl
remains, anu is strongly comDinea wim tne
sense that this frolicsome maiden has the

whereby the said load lost its balance and
slid off the cart. Bho strings tho secd-berrics
of roses togither, making a scarlet necklace
of them, which she fastens about her throat.

takes her for a promise of cheerfulness

excellent daughter, and supports her toother
by the labor of her hands. It would be difll
cult to conceive beforehand how much can
be added to the enjoyment of a household by
mere snnniness of temper and liveliness of
disposition; for her.intcilcct Is very ordinary
and she nevexsays anything worth hearing,

self is an expression well worth studying.

A man who always commanded resneet
from the soundness of his opinions and the
calm, serene manner of their presentation.
A man capable not only of discerning what
was the proper thing to do, but always right
in his choice of a period at which that tlung
should be done. A man who occupied no
inferior position when cotempornry with the
greatest men of American State history. It
was not needed that anything should be
added to make tho reputation of such a man
more remarkable, more prominent, Yettlu.ro
is one fact which gives this man a hold upon
the American heart possessed by no other
liting man; a hold touching, tender, and no

ing Its noblest and most acute sensibilities,

It Is claimed that this man's course has
not been exempt from error in judgment.
It Is not necessary to the maintenance of the
reputation which his policy hss won, that
this should be denied Mr, Seward is human,
and humanity Is fallible IT there be any
statesman who rose in 18C0 and predicted
truly all the principal events that would take
filace In the succeeding semi-decade, who
orccasted the policy that would would carry
the nation through the strugglo, or who, ap
preciating its magnitude properly, ventured
to foretell its triumphant ending, the name
of that statesman has not met the ejo of the
present writer. Hut that Mr. Seward, from
the outset, took the highest and noblest tiew
of his duty In his country's strait, and that he
has carried out his conceptions in the most
conscientious and noble manner, no one
familiar with the history of the past (he
years can stand up and deny.
Time, that test of all human endeat or, has
already set its seal on the worthinus of Mr.
Seward's work. At the tune of the Trent
difficulty an anglomanla spread over tho
country, which it required no ordinary nerve,
no common tensPordnty to withstand But
he did withstand it, although the flood was
to powerful that even one so cautious In his
thoughts and utterances as Edward Everett
was carried over to tho opposition by it.
But a perusal of that noble State paper,

only one In history where tl e claims of an
opponent are fairly and fully stated, and
which winds up with a decision adterse to

The Averlll Coal and Oil Company.
Major General Averill, a cavalry officer in
Weil Virginia, has got into ome)"trbublef"
withNew York capitalists who embarked
with him In an oil speculation.: These capi
talists aro the IIon.'xIenry J. Raymond, Mr.
Leonard W. Jerome, Ellsha luggs, Paul
Forbes, D. II. Ilutton, and others of lesser
note, who, on January 14, 186 organized
the Averill Coal and Oil Company, and ,
bought 3,500 acres of valuable land in Put
nam county, West Virginia. On this tract
of land a village named Raymond City was
laid out, a saw-mill erected, and a brick kitfl
put in operation. Gen. Averill, as president
of the company, was to have a salary ef
5,000 a year, and hit brother, Ii. F. Averill,
14,000 as superintendent .Hut now Mrj Ray
mond and Mr. Klggi, who holdJ the title to
the land, refuse to transfer It to the com
pany, or to complete the organization by
Issuing the 0,01)0 shares or stock that were to
be sold at 820 each to famish working capi

distributed among the speculators, of which
1,680 were to come to the Genera himself;
besides, neither his salary nor his brother'!
havo been paid.
The case is now before the supreme court
in New York. Mr. Raymond and his friends
show that they have invested 81G2,O0q cash
in tho property, and that in money the Gen

G. S. Peabody, master of the packet ship
Isaac Wright, trXs written a letter giving an
account of the treatment of cholera cases
which occurred on hit vessel in January last
during a trip from Liverpool to New York.
Captain Peabody says that within forty-eight
hours after sailing, cholera appeared, and in
ten days twenty-seven passengers had died of
it, though they were treated " by the book.".
The contain then applied a method of treat.,,
ment that had been recommended by bupre
decessor in command, and did not loso" an
other patient on that voyage or since. The
remedy waa this- A tablcspoonfu of salt and
a tablespoonful of red pepper in a liajf pint
of hot water The captain says he wai him
self attacked by violent cholern.with cramps,
c,butthe medicine" carried him through."
He adds " The medicine acts quickly at an
emetic, say in one or two minutes. It brings
up a very offensive matter, whiwh sticks liko
clue. It was elven. amonir others, to one old
woman 01 eignty-iourj ears or age, who was

dozen shipmasters betides myself. Its use
is quite general In Liverpool, where even
some of the regular doctors find It to their
advantage to resort to it Provided with
this simple recipe, I no longer consider the.
cholera an unmanageable disease."

over the hot pudding when cooked, return it
to the oven, and bake to a delicate brown.
We like the above without addition, bnt
