woithless, and, soma quite injurious , in fact,
I despaired of ever getting well, and determ-,

Th e Little Home Rooms.
This Saturday Night is the first
we have given in a long, long time
to matting social call and we
made but two. When the sun went
down we put aside the white paper
before' u 8, put the cover on our
inkstand, wiped the pen and rested
A few hours later we called to pay
a poor man for some work he had
done for us, that he might not
lose time coming for his pay, when
etery hour of his time he needed
to use for bis support;
- 'Then we called upon a friend,
who works in a harness shop up
town a yonng workingrcan we
have known for years. We found
him at home. A few years ago
be was an apprentice boy in the
town where we learned our trade.
He started out in life poor but
plucky. After a while he came to
this city, and at last became fore
man of a large shop.
Then he married now ho rents
an entire floor of a neat house on
Twenty-first street and lives like
a man of sense. His wife was
there his two babies two bright
faced little bovs were there ha
was there, and better than all,
there was a home look about the
place words cannot describe. We
were welcome. So they both said
as we look a chair. He had been
reading from a magazine. She
was sitting by his side, nearly,
sewing and listening, while the lit
tle fellows were building a block
house in a corner, whist as young
mice, with no loud talk, angry
words, or quarreling.
And thus ran our talk:
' 'Happy as ever as you both
deserve to be.'
Yes; happier and better off
than many others.'
'Is work good now ?'
Middling ; but not so good as it
has been.'
You all appear in good health.'
Yes ; we are quite well.'
'And quite contented ?'
Why not ? We are well hap
py ; in good health. My earnings
more than support us, for we live
within our means. We buy noth
ing except we pay for it at the
time, so debts and creditors never
bother us. I have the best woman
in the world lor a wife, and two
kinder, belter-beloved children I
do not know of. They take it
from their mother.'
Oh ! dear George; perhaps he
don't care to hear of such things.'
Excuse me, but we do. Here
you live. Here is jour home.
Here is the heaven of lifethe
resting place and here we find
you happy. So we would know
all you see fit to tell nothing
more.' ' , :
There, good Mollie, I told you
so. You see, I knew hiui before
I did you, and I know what he
thinks. And I am not afraid or
ashamed to talk to him, for he un
derstands these things. And, as I
said before, we are quite content
ed. Mollie is good just as good
as she can be. She is kind to
others, but loves only those of her
own home, and we all love her.
She tries to save and to help ac
cumulate something, for we are
growing old, and the boys are to
be educated, just as we were. To
be sure, we don't seem to bo any
older than lst year, but we are.
Every year counts two one more
gone, and one less to come.
We don't have so much to both
er us. Not so much as we used to.
Once I wanted to wear all tbe fine
clothes I saw, and to own a great
big house, with lots of servants to
wait on us. And Mollie and I use d
to walk down Broadway, looking
in the how windows, and wishing
we had the beautiful things to be
seen all along. Then we would
feel blue because we could not
have them all come home tired,
and feel sort of heart-scratched
and mean, to think some folks
could have everything they want
ed and we could not. Then we
would go to bed tired and out of
humor. '
One night we felt real bad, and
both of us went to bed in bad hu
mor. In the morning Mollie said
she didn't want to walk down
Broadway looking in the windows
to wish she had all the dresses,
&c, any more, for it was no use
to wish all the time for something
we did not need. After breakfast
I waited a few moments, and we
said we were better off than many
who were rich who did not love
79 1871.
each other, - and . then we kissed
each other, and I hurried off to
work, with a . heart as light as one
of these little red baloons children
plav with.
Ever since then we have been
happier. We have all we need and
more.' It don't take so much to
keep a family after all, if we don't
live more to please other folks
than ourselves. If anybody don't
like us because we don't livo in a
big house and give dinners and
parties, and msko a great fuss, we
can't help it, and don't care wheth
er they do or not. Our greatest
happiness is in living for each oth
er. ;
Sometimes Mollie is a little wor
ried,' for house work will worry
anyone. Then I am sorry for her
and hold her in my arms till she is
rested, and it's all gone in a few
moments. Sometimes something
or other vexes me, for you know
it is not all sunshine, and then
Mollie cheers me up, and prints a
loving kiss on my brow or l'ps,
and tells me that she loves me I
look at our little home and think
how 6he is to me always, and I
tell you, the clouds float almost
before I know it, and then my
heart is light, and I feel so thank,
f ul that I have such a good wife
and such a quiet home; that I love
ber more and more each day, and
care less for the noisy, bustling,
cheating, selfish world outside.
Not long did we remain, for one
does not like to break in upon the
haDDiness and comfort of others.
One has no right to do this. So
we came to our room, and thought
of the homes all over the land and
of those who live therein. And ol
a truth we believe the little homes
are the happiest. These little lov
ing homes where people livo more
for themselves than others, not of
the family circle. Tbe beautiful
Heaven-touched homes where men
are kind, true earnest, loving, and
loved the like in return by a goodi
pure, careful, considerate woman
who is something besides a but
terfly of fashion, anxious to show
her good clothes to company, as
if pone others had costly attire.
But a home to be beautiful must
be heart-warmed and love-lit.
This world is not all storm, nor all
sunshine. We all have troubles,
vexations annoyances, ia propor
tion as we fight and mix with the
world. : How few there are who
really love or care for us. We
meet this oerson and that. We
shako hands we Bmile we listen
to their compliments and call them
friends . They look to os to in
terest them they discourse our
viands or drink as we pay, then go
away to repeat the same compli
mcnts we thought were for us ex.
clusively, to others, and criticise
our acts, dress, and manners
They love us in proportion as they
can use us, too often. We fasten
our heart to this one, then to that
one. When no loneer of use, we
are cut, shaken, ignored, forgotten
Then comes the beauty of home,
and the joy of its love. We find
here a rest and shelter, all the
more dear as we have learned the
hollowness of the world and the
composition of that surging sea of
humanity, which rolls ever the
same, but ever to keep down more
than there is room for at the sur
If a man wojld be happy he
must trv and make others so. He
must have a home and live for it,
as we have a hope for the future
and lire for it. We cannot all
wear crowns, but we can all take
care of our hearts and our thomes
We cannot all have great houses,
but we nee4 not wear our life out
in wishing for that we cannot ob

which does not bring happiness to
the heart, no matter what pleasure
it be to tbe eve, or how much it
gratifies pride.
We know of happy homes where
loving hearts are living where
men and woman are contented.
If a man be enntet with
his home, if heart be there, you
win nnd bim there. Jf be is not
contented there, he will seek and
invent excuses to absent himself
therefrom. If a woman loves her
husband or the one of her choice,
a word, a lock, a kiss, a smile, a
touch, is more from him than all
the adultation of the world, for
thos her heart feeds on that which
is the germ of life, present and
eternal the source of happiness
here and Over There. Life is a
school a study. It is with some
a success with others a failure.
We can all do better if we will

Nathan's Murderer Discovered.
The New-York Sun of the 31st
alt., publishes a statement from
Counsellor Count Johannes setting
forth tho startling fact that the
murderer of Benjamin Nathan, in
July last, has been discovered. It
seems that the assassin entered
Mr. Nathan's house as a burglar,
for the purpose of plundering it.
Mr. Nathan was asleep. The noise
of the intruder awoke him. Sup
posing it to be one of his sons he
said: 'Harmon, is it you?' These
were his last words. The robber
at once became a murderer, strik
ing the old man dead with the iron
dog, or, as he called it, the 'rung.'
Mr. Nathan was killed in order
that the burglar might not be de
tected, arrested, and punished.
The blow was struck by a left
handed man, whose right hand had
been mutilated, so that when, cov
ered with blood, he laid it on the
wall of Mr. Nathan's room, it left
there the mark of a hand with only
four fingers. That man, we are
assured, is now in costody.
The testimony presented by
Count Johannes settles forever
tbe question, so shocking to ev
ery human feeling, Whether any of
Mr. Nathan's family were in any
way implicated in bis murder. It
shows that they were all perfectly
innocent in thought as well as in
deed; that the crime was the work
exclusively of a professional rob
ber, who, had accomplices.. This
evidence will be most grateful,' not
only to the relatives of the mur
dered man, but to all persons
whatever whose hearts are not as
wicked as that of the murderer'
New Discoveries in Geology.
The Independent says: 'As
some persons have reported that
Dr. Carpenter, one of the leading
investigators of the character of
the ocean bottoms by means of the
dredge, has represented that the
late discoveries made by the dredg
ing expeditions upset modern ge
ology, he has given in Nature a
ull exposition of the bearing, as
he sees it, of the discoveries on
geological science. He believe9
that we may truly saj that the
depositions of the Chalk Period
have been going on in the deep
seas, undisturbed to the present
time, and charicterized by the
same essential constituents that
is, globigerinocl, coccoliths, sponge,
spicules, and foraminifers now
as in the time of the white chalk.
But this, he says, does not indi
cate any denial of the great doc
trines of tbe regular succession of
strata deposited at different periods
and charicterized by different fos
sils, which have long been ac
knowledged. These ' discoveries,
however, show that the entire dif
ference in lithological character
and in fossils of two beds is not
proof that they were not cotempo
raneous. We find that tbe mere
difference of a few hundred feet
deep, accompanied with a current
of cold instead of warm water, will
give a gravel instead of an oozy
bottom and an arctic fauna. Still
further, the presence of such an
arctic fauna in the deep seas, even
within temperate or tropiial lati
tudes, shows that the discovery of
similar fossil shells in a sandstone
would be of no proof a glacial pe
riod existing at the time of its de
position.' The National CsMSTSRiKs -The
report of the officers in charge of
the National Cemeteries shows
that remains of deceased Union
soldiers are interred in 73 Nation
al Cemeteries, and 316 locl, pri
vate or pos. cemeteries. - The to
tal number of bodies of Union sol
diers reported interred throughout
is 315,555, of which number the
lemains of 172,109 can be identi
fied, while those of 143,446 remain
unknown. It is estimated that 463
scattered bodies remain yet to be
interred in the National Cemeter
ies. The estimated aggregate of
expenditures on account of tbe es
tablishment and main ten ace of the
National Cemeteries, up to Janu
ary 30, 1869, was reported at $3,
226,370. The estimated expendi
turee for these cemeteries for the
next fiscal year is 9300,000.

Good Story ot a Kentucky Jndge.
An incident in tbe judicial career
of the Hon. Thomas B. Monroe,
who, for over twenty-five years,
occopied the position ; of Federal
Judge in Kentucky, will illustrate
the high purity of his character, and
may serve to remind the judiciary
of our day how conscientiously the
Judges of the olden time held the
scales of justice.
A student in the Judge's
school one day asked him if
deciding a cause he ever bad felt
any bias or prejudice for or against
the parties. The Judge promptly
said: "Never but once; I'll tell you
the story. There was a very im
portant case which was argued with
great ability before me by the most
distinguished lawyers at the bar of
Frankfort, and it took two weeks
in the trial. Every morning as
the court opened a little woman
dressed in black, modestly and
unassumingly courtesied to the
court as if unseen, and took her
seat near the . door. Just before
the court adjourned she retired,
not without making always a cour
tesy. It attracted my attention,
and I inquired who she was, I was
told she was a party to the suit
then on trial. When the cause was
submitted, and I was preparing my
opinion, I found it impossible to
dismiss Trom my mind that littlo
woman and her courtesy. I began
to doubt whether I could do jus
tice in the case. I studied the mat
ter very closely, finally decided in
her favor. It involved the title of
all she possesed in the world
never," said the old Judge,
entirely satisfied that my decision
was correct, until o it was finally
unanimously affirmed by the Su
preme Court of the United States.
I feared my judgment had been
warped by the simplicityind deli
cacy of the little woman in
black." Aim OrUan Timet.
