JONA. C. WHITE, I Publishers LOUIS p. ANDERSON, f ruDuslle " A Frenchman's Opinion of the United States .—M. Alfred D'Alembert has published a book on America. On slavery he is neutral ; but maintains that the condition of the slaves, physically, is superior to that of the peasants in many parts of Prance. Of the inferior cast into which the free blacks at the North are converted, even by the Abolitionists, after speaksng of their exclusion from all participation on an equal footing, in the business and pleasures of white life, their exclusion ,'rom public offices, from theatres, hotels and railroad cars, he adds : Death itself does not rehabilitate them ; they have a sepcr.-tte burial place ! And it would not surprise me if the Americans should pretend that God had set apart for them a hell and a par adise, so that the classification might be observed in the other world. Do not forget that this is the case in the Northern States, where slavery has long since ceased to exist, and where they manifest the greatest impatience at not seeing it abolished by their neighbors. He writes as follows on the subject of Ameri can gallantry : I am profoundly humiliated ; I blush to the roots of my hair ; I know not where to hide my self. On the faith of tradition I had hitherto believed that the French people were the most gallant people in the world. Everything sup ported this conviction. Songs, ballads, the good opinion we generally entertain of ourselves, and the error of foreign people, who say from habit: " Gallant as a Frenchman." A profound error which I have recognized with shame and surprise! Gallantry is not •dead. It has deserted Europe ; it has taken re fuge in the United States. * * I proclaim it openly—it is in America that I have seen true gallantry universally practiced, spontaneously, disinterestedly. There, woman ie respected for her own sake, because she is woman ; because she is, or will be, the mother of a citizen. If a good thing could be carried to an excess, I should say that the rights attributed to the fair sex are pushed to exaggeration. The women know their power, they abuse it as tyrants do who know that there are no limits to their authority. In summer when it is too warm to stay at home, all America travels, by railroad and by steamboat, to interior wateriug places, to sea side resorts, or wherever else the inhabitants of the United States are supposed to amuse them selves. It is in these excursions that one can judge better than anywhere else of the extent and de gree of this true gallantry, and of the eager deference shown, invariably, to women. They arrive late ; all the seats in the cars are occu pied ; twenty gentlemen immediately rise, at the risk of remaining on their feet, or even of losing their journey i they quietly seat themselves, without as much as saying " thank you." The least sign of gratitude to the men is superfluous. L ynch L aw as A dministered bt W omen .—By the annexed extract of a letter from China, De cember 8th, published in the New York Com mercial, it seems that a female coolie, is worse than a tigress, and that lynch law, as adminis tered in China, is severer than with as outside barbarians. Perhaps, however, if a wife were al lowed to avenge her husband's murder, ia the first moment of her excitement; married men would feel very secure, and the question of mar ried or unmarried be always put before com mencing a fight : " Oar peaceable suberbs were a scene of un wonted uproar yesterday afternoon. A Canton man quarrelled with a Fuh Chau man ia the street and killed him on the spot. He was in stantly seised by the mob, and with his hands tied behind him, taken to the top of the hill back of the foreign hongs, and bound to a pine tree. The wife of the deceased Coolie took a nail sand drove it into the body, shoulders, breast, temples and eyes of the writhing culprit, aided and abetted by a furious multitude ia her bloody revenge. The man was just alive at sundown, several hours after. I saw the mangled body this morning. The head was a perfect mass of gore. The oondact of the womaa is loudly ap plauded by the natives." W hom P a*ticdlabs .—A good story is told ef an old lady who had received a letter from «er sea, a sailor, m board a merchantman, Which ran thus : " Have been driven into U m Bay of Fandy by » pampoose right ia the teeth.

Wall, 1 wo«i4n't ha i —Mnr Bow to Preserve Women. There is nothing in the world that we think so much of as we do of women. Our mother is a woman—wife, sisters, pretty cousens, are all women ; and the daughters will be if (Heaven spare them !) they live long enough. And then there is a love of women in general, which we do not deny. A fine, magnificent specimen of the sex, full of life and health—a ripe red cheek and lip, and flashing eye, is something that does one good to look at, as she illuminates the humdrum sidewalks of every-day streets. A North River Steamboat under full headway, with colors fly ing is rather a pretty sight—rather stirring and inspiring ; and we pull up our tired nag on the shore to see her pass, and admire the swell she cuts. Comparitively, however, the steamer sinks into insignificance, or some other very deep water, by the side of a well kept, well dressed woman. There is no rubbing it out ; women are the ornament, charm, blessing, beauty and bliss of life, (man's life we mean, of course.) Any means that can be devised for preserving them should be publicly made known. They are dif ferent from any other kind of fruit. You cannot pickle them. You cannot do them up in sugar and set them in a cold room, with a paper soaked in brandy over their mouths. You cannot put them in cans and seal them up air tight, without injuring their form and flavor. Now, as men are so dependent upon women for life's choicest blessings, a proper mode of preserving them be comes a matter of grear moment, and we are sure tlint the public will thank us for an unfail ing receipt. Have the feet well protected, then pay the next attention to the chest. The chest is the repository of the vital organs. There abide the heart and lungs. It is from the impressions made upon these organs through the skin, that the shiver comes. It is nature's quake—the alarm bell—at the onset of danger. A woman nevet shivers from the effect of cold upon her limbs, or hands, or head ; but let the cold strike through her clothing on her chest, and off go her teeth into a chatter, and the whole organism is in a commotion. One sudden and severe impres sion of cold upon the chest has slain its tens of thousands. Therefore, while the feet are well looked after, never forget the chest. These points attended to, the natural connectionis of the dress will supply the rest, and the woman is ready for the air. Now let her visit her neigh bors, go shopping, call upon the poor, and walk for the good of it, or the fun of it. Keep away from the stove or the Register. Air that is dry and burnt, more or less charged with gases evolved by the fuel, is poison. Go up stairs and make the beds with mittens on. Fly around the house like mad, and ventilate the rooms. Don't sit pent up in a single room with double windows. Fruit will not retain its full form and flavor iu air-tight cans ; neither will women. They need air. If the shiver comes on during these operations, go direcrly and put on something more about the chest. Again, do not live in dark rooms. Light fades the carpet, but it feeds the flower. No living thing, animal or vcgitable, can enjoy health in darkness. Light is almost as nessesary as air, and a brown tan is far preferable, even as a mat ter of beauty, to a sickly paleness of complexion. Thus much in regard to the physical means for preservation. There are moral means no less important. Every woman should be married to an excellent man. Marriage, it is true, brings care and wear, but it is the ring that is worn that keeps bright, and the watch that lies still and unwound that gets out of order. The sweet sympathies evolved in the relations of the family, the new energies developed by new responsibil ities, the new compensation for all outlays of strength, bring about a delightful play of the heart and intellect, which, in their reaction upon the body, produces an effect that is nothing less than preservation. Then there is a higher moral power than this—one which we speak of soberly and honestly. No one is completely armed against the encroaching ills of life—who has in the heart no place for religion. The calmness, the patience, and the joy and hope that are in possession of the woman whose heart is right in it« highest relation, can never fail to preserve and heighten every personal power and charm that he possesses. There! yoa have the receipt. Some of it is in sportive form, bnt it is none the less sober truth. It has Within it the care for many a dis ease—the preventative for more. It might be made longer, but when we see its prescriptions universally adopted, it will be time to bring for ward the remainder. . S hooting S tab .—There was a man who, when the stars were complaisant below, usjed to rig up a telescope wherewith to study astrono my at a sixpence a squint. One night as he was getting ander way I saw two Irish gentlemen taking an observation of his movements. Both were policemen. m Jamey," «aid one, "what in the wurreld is yon fellow after with his machinely !" " Whist, ye spalpeen," whispered the other, "sure and can't ye see that it's an air gun cannon that he's got. He's after shooting stars, he is." " Had'nt we better be getting out av the way thin ?" inquired his friend. " Sure and it's not us," was the answer. "Did'nt ye ever hear of shooting stars ?" By this time the telescope man h 'id arraged his instrument and squinted through it up at the stars. The policeman gazed up likewise in wonder. Just then, by an odd chance, a large meteor shot down the Bky. " Bedad, he hit it—he's fetched it down!" oried both of the paddies in a ■■ breath. "Sure, and that's-die greatest «hooting I iver saw in my life ?" Bat a sens» of duty at once prevail ed, and one of them at once rudely accosted the men of science. " Ye'll just stop that now, mister, a▼ yeplase. The night is dark enough now, plinty, and av you go on shooting stars at that rate, sorra the man'li find his way about the strate." Aad the telescope man had to pick up and beoff. C amphor ahd S trychnine .—The beneficial effects of camphor, as an antidote to strychnine, are illustrated in a case reported by Dr.. Tewk esbury, of Portland, Main. It appears that a hoy was seised with eoavalsioas, and it was as certained that be had just eaten a biscuit, pick ed up at the door of an eating house, that was made Ihr the purpose of killing rata, and eon tained about «ne and * half graim of strych nine. The boy 's spams were so severe that im T mediate death was inevitable, though all the osaal remedies ww* wsérted to. Camphor eould ootbe ietredaeeilinto the stomach on ac count of the continued lockjaw. Accordingly •trong injections ef camphor were need, and the body immersed ia a hoteampbor bath, and » a Ifcw boart the boy was comparatively well. Business ôTarîis.

The undersigned selected committee of judges of the Bourbon County Agribultural Society, to deter mine the relative merits (under rules presented for their gui dance) of the Corn and Cob Mills of Messrs. Scott ft Hedges, of Cincinnati, named the " Little Giant," and of Messrs. Dou glass, Smith * Co., of Zanesvllle, Ohio, named the " Excel sior Young America," had trial made of said mills at Paris. Ky., on the 5th and 6th of May, 1S5C. The " Little Giant " in 100 revolutions ground 12,1^ bushels of meal, at an aver age draft of 460 lbs. dranometer. The "Toung America" bushels at an average draught of 190 lbs. A half bushel of the meal of each mill was run through seives No. 4 and 6 ; the quantity of cob left in the No. 4 seire by the " Toung America " was double that of the "Little Giant," while the meal of the latter was of more uniform Oneness than that of the former. Though the mills are of equal diameter (20 inches) thegrinding surface in the " Little Giant" is sup posed to be live times greater than in Ihe " Toung America." these tests and an examination of the construction of the mills, led the committee to the opinion that the " Little Gi ant " Is the superior mill, best adapted to the uses of the far mer, and they therefore award to Messrs. Scott ft Hedges the two silver goblets. R. H otchcbait . BBCTCS J. C lat. W. R. Dcncan. C. T. Garrard. Bekj B. G »oo«. W. C. L tlb . B. J.

And now when the prospect of a crop of cane Is so small, it becomes the more important that you should have one of those cheap mills.
