The following is the conclusion of a room at one of their regular weekly ' meetings, on the subject of "Ancient History, winch was divided and treat ed in seven distinct periods. II tvig presented the facts of An cient History, we now propose a chaji ter of taucics in connection with the folg In the first period, fancy to yourself Adam and Eve dressed in the latest spring styles of the fig leaves, with no preaching to attend on Sunday, nor "old fulks at home" to visit on Satur day evening, nor yet any neighbors to maku them the first cull as the newly arrived strangers in the community. If Mrs. Eve Adam had been as formal and fastidious about who should make the first call as some of her daughters have proved to be, she would have been sitting under that fig tree yet grieving over woman's inhumanity to woman which makes countless thou sands scold. But, nay verily, Mrs. Adam, although she enjoyed a distinc tion never allotted to any of her gen erations after her, that of having cap tivated and won the f flections of every man on eaitli, yet site was none of your stuck up aristocracy, but like all sensi ble people jn a new country, she laid aside all her preconceived notions and prejudices of the customs ami conven tionalities of life whence she came, and very wisely concluded as she was in Home she would do as Rome did, ami pitched out of the garden and made the acquaintance of her neighbors with out the use of tin1 visiting card, or the fit mnl introduction of our daw And what devotee of etiquette will d-jny that Mr. Eve was the model of her race and the paragon of her sex ? Again, fancy to yourself Noah, Hip first preacher of righteousness, a Meth odist circuit rider perhaps, riding the circuit of the Euphrates for 120 years because there was no Bishop elected to change bis appointment to a fresh pas turage of spring chickens and autum nal camp meetings. Then in your fancy step over the diluvian into the Patriarchal period, and there behold a man of unfaltering faith and ventursome pluck, leave his o-vn native country, Ur of the Clod dee, and go out to camp awhile in the wilderness of Canaan. If Abram and Sarah had possessed that peculiar mod ern fascination for stone fronts, corner lots and brown houses which has seized upon so many of their faithless descend ants they would yet have been linger ing around the brazen gates and hang ing gardens of Babylon but they took that wholesome ad ice so gratuitously given by Horace Greeley, when he said : "Go west, young man, go west !" Whether Abraham ever read the book "What I Know About Farming," by Horace Greeley, or not we re not in formed, but it is said of him that he went out "west" not knowing whither he went, looking for a city whose foun dations were already laid and whose future was not at all problematical. Thus showing that lie had imbibed the spirit of Mr. Greeley's advice, as well as the poetical sentiment so 1 ropheti cally expressed by Bishop Berkley w hen he said : "Westward the star of Empire takes its way The four great acts already past The fif'h will slose the drama of the day. Time's greatest empire is her last." Now on fancy's wings let us take a flight across four hundred and thirty years and imagine yourself standing in the presence of Moses the Hebrew, a man alnrnt six feet high, and of ma jestic corpulency and magnitude with an avoidupois specific gravity of 2o0 pounds, neatly attired in dark trowsers, white vest mid cravat, standing collar and blue cloth pigeon-tail coat with brass eagle buttons, and a white fur I hat that would hold a iKvk of shelled corn. This U the man that bad gradu ated at the Uuivtrsity of rgypt ("in all the wisdom of the Egyptians") and had taken the degree of D.

An Accomplishment which Every Young Man Should Acquire. This is an accomplishment which every young man should strive to ac- quire. Its usefulness, when called up- on to perform the duties of host or ac- cidently to assist a lady friend iu serv- ing her guests, can only be appreciated by utter absence of it. Like Bwimming. once acquired, it is never forgotten. Hence, even the most impecunious among the ax mar learn it. with fair reason to expect to use it. even in the course of a most precarious life.

This cut is rarely done except wnen tne saddle is served a second time, and the top cuts have been consumed. The. forequarter of lamb or mutton j8 rather troublesome to carve, vet bv ti,e knife under the leg. and disjointing it the ribs are exposed and i)0ti, DOue and meat being tender they are easjy BPperatPd.

A ten-pound turkey was set upon the table; the un- skilled carver attacked it; one lady got the winrr nnd brensi. from onn m.Ip an. other fared similarly, while the legs went to two others, and the carcass to the fifth, leaving three children, the lady of the house and himself with out any.

The Old and The New Year, The Old Year has fled fled forever like tome strange wild dream that haunts the brain of a sleeper, So fades the last blush of day, the tint on the rose, the leaf in the forest. Only a while ago it was called the New Year, and around the festive board many a glass was drained to its houor. Bright' anticipations arose in every beating heart for a happy future just beyond, while Hope whispered 'her golden promises and bade each restless soul tu ''wait!" Ahl it is the hardest thing in life this "'waiti Even should a wish be realized (which seldom is to our satisfaction) another takes its place quite as ardent. . That which is just before is always beautiful; so is the mirage in the desert so the apples on the Dead Sea shore. But, the Old Year has gone 1 Dear was some departed friend. Some gbrious time in that Old Year has forever planted it in the garden of memory, some sorrowful event has forever hallowed it there. Of what was that Old Year made? Shadow and sunshine, flowers and leaves, hopes, fears, pleasure and pain. Brides going forth in their beauty, newly made graves in the old burying ground. Feasts, funerals, merry wel comes and weary farewells. But it has one now, that old time, into the dark oblivion that rolls 'round all the world, and the Recording An gel has Enid, "'tis done!" "the Old Year dieth, v. And the forests utter a moan, Like the voice of one who eiieih In the wilderness alone, 'Vex not his ghost.'" Yes, the roaring winds have chanted his death-song in the forest, and he has wrapped himself in a winding sheet to slumber with the things that were. 1883 has dawned upon us, nd thou sands of hearts have welcomed his com ing with joy and gladness. Many a bosom thrills with pleasure as the rosy visions of it coming time draw near brilliant hopes all woven in gorgeou tissues flaunting daily iu the golden light! Another page, pure and spotless is opened before us, and when another twelve months shall have been gar nered in, let no evil action mar its beauty. Of the coming eventa that are veiled in mystery we know noth ing. We can only look to a higher power for guidance and fervently utter the petition, Kyvin elyron! Christi elyrou! Adriexxe. The Oldest Oak iu America. The town of Wood bridge, near New Haven, is said to possess the oldest onk in America, and a celebration was re cently held in honor of tho venerable tree It is said to be from 1,000 to 1,800 years old, its circumference at the base being thirty feet, and some of its bran ches extending sixty feet from the trunk. Despite its ag it is full of vigor, and those who gathered to honor it, decked it with flags and flowers. The company also formed themselves into an association which has for its object the protection of tho patriarch and the building of a railing around it. Nearly ail of the grand old oaks of England have been protected by like associations. The protection of his toric trees seems almost a sacred duty, Exdiange. Deserve friends and you will have them.
