Years have gone by since we met by the sea, The kiss that you gave, love, lingers with me ; Thrills in my heart like an ingel's tuno Perfume distilled from the rose of June, Silvery light from the face of the morn. Lulled to repose by moan of tho ocean, Clasped in a Mil-ill of blissful emotion ; Sunlight and starlight we catch but a gleam, And things are not surely all that they seem! Your secret and gem I still fondly keep, So close to my heart, awake or asleep, The world has no prize more dear unto me, I riiiiurchnsed. uusoiiLdit. alove without fee Was that soul thrilling gift down by the sea! ' "' My darling ! while niem'ry clings (o this bruin, I'll foudly look back o'er mountain and plain ; The dews of the morn and mists of the night Shall waft me away to the couch of the light, Drowned in the. waves of your hair, outof sight. Absent and lonely, my soul flies to thoe ; Back to t he shore of J hat sweet summer sea, A land where the vine and oruuge doth bloom, , And silver and gold its mountains entomb, A paradise planted, rich with perfume. Deep in my heart I have built a pure shrine, Where I can worship your love, so divine, To which lean turn in moments of sorrow, Kneeling to one from whom I can borrow, Pleasures and peace to bless me to-morrow. Tho fruit timely plucked from a ripe sun ny tree, Is Bwectee thau all the "green gages" to me; So love freely given, heart full with mind, Leaves nothing but glorious inein'rioa be hind " A vision of beauty so noble and kind. Sadly I sigh for your loving embrace, Fancy uwukens the light of your face ; Out through the mist of your echoless shore Angels are railing my lost, loved Lenore ; Weeping, I piuo for yonr love evermore. Sitting-Koom Vs. Parlor. Mrs. Giii-field and Mrs. Webber had . exchanged 1 call for years. Eneh bad entertained tlie other in the best dref s, which she bad hur riedly donned for the occasion, and eaeli lady had been received in the other's best jtarloi-, both unexcep tional rooms iu their way (if uno must ha ve a best parlor), with hand some carpet, nnd just exactly the stereotyped number of chairs, otto mans, hassocks, tables, brackets, albums, busts, mantels, vases and pictures. , The ladies sat primly in the dreadful fuueial gloom, and iu tones which from necessity sounded .sepulchral exchanged a few con ventional questions and answers, and I dnre say, either never thought much about tlie other's home life. I knew Mrs. Garfield thought Mrs. Webber a dreadfully common place person, and beard-Mrs. Web ber say it was a pity that Mrs. Gar field hail, since her marriage, devel oped such fondness for general so ciety. Owe day when Mrs. Garfiold paid her semi-annual call at Mrs. Web ber's a new servant, answered the bell, who took tho lady culler through the hall, and opening the back parlor door said, "your sis ter, muin," and straightway van ished down the basement stairs. It whs like 11 revelation to Mrs. Garfield. She said aftei ward iu re verting to tho incident that (the wanted to take her things right oft' and stay. She saw a pleasant sun ny room with flowers and growing plants, a canary, a cat nud a baby. Airs. Webbercame gracefully for ward with an excuse ou her lips to take her visitor into tbe parlor, lint the lady having had one glimpse ot this home paradise would not budge. Sbe sat down in the sew inir chair, and they talked as last as their tongues could fly about tbe baby, the books, the music, anil the tilants, the birds and the worst ed work until the call which usual ly lasted tilt een minutes stretched along into an hour. To Mrs. (iarflebrs surprise Mrs. Webber talked ensibly and plea santly ukii every subject that came up; spoke of tho value of time ; told her how much she had accom plished iu odd moments ; said she kept up her omsic because she thought it every person's duty to have some intellectual pursuit in w hich thev were all the time mak ing progress even if slowly ; that having once takeu it tip she could not conscientiously neglect it be cause it w as painful for her to feel that she was deteriorating in miy ruv. "I have enjoyed ltso iniieU,'' said Mrs. Garfield, when at last the tore herself away witli a U00K to read and a tidy to copy which her hostess had lent her. " I miu so clad," repueu JJra. Webber cordially. "Now in return t vou must allow me 10 uiuacjuu i ...11 N I Biuing-rooni can. t Although .Mrs. uarneian nouse. w,t.s uhgrmd a Mrs. Webber's, and she bad equally as bountiful means at her command (their husbands both living on ft salary), she was not inclined to b very domestic, and with the exception of her front parlor, her housekeeping was sadly neglected. - ') Jiow if she was to receive Mrs. Webber iu bee sitting room, the place was to bo made worthy such a charming houy body to be enter, tained in. . "I have neither piano, plants, cat, canary, nor baby," she soliloquized. "There are books enough, but I am not at all studious or literary. There is the sewing machine, too, and tho work-baskets, but my sitting-room must not si 11 k to the level ot a mere, sewing-room." She did wish she had a fernery, if uoUiing more, for tho bay window. Then like an inspiration came to her the thought or her old disused easel that she used to' think such a pret ty addition to the sitting-room at home, she ran up nnd brought it down from the rubbish closet in the back chamber. ,A soft flannel, a little linseed oil and a good deal of polishing made it look as well as ever, and standing iu a good light in the bay window with an unfin ished sketch upon it, showed that some one loved pictures and the making of them, and gave the key note to the arrangement of the room; for iu every apartment must be some idea to bo carried out in detail else tbe true ettect is lost; and although there may be pleuty of pretty things in it, it becomes a room w ithout a character. The easel, forming a peculiar and distinctive feature, awakened so many possibilities that she hardly found the day long enough to carry them out. Her husband, a man of much natural refinement, was tie lighted when he came home at night. He said the roou was an ideal studio, and running up stairs soou came back witli tt large pott folio stuffed with pictures which ho scattered artistically about, completing the charming effects 'Wheu did you get them P, his wife asked, m surprise. "They were brother Jack's, and have been, ever, since Lis death, with other traps in that old hair trunk. 1 intended to give them to you after we were married, but you gave up your drawing and paint ing entirely, you know. I hae been very sorry, and now I am de lighted that you are thinking of taking it up again, fori had great pride in your talent, which I thought almost .amounted to genius." Af ter that Mrs. Garfield could not besr to tell her husband why she had brought down her neglected easel, and the nexUdny, after she had finished her housework nnd for some reason she saw more that needed doiug than usual she pre pared her pencils, and went to fin ishing up a sketch commenced years before. The old love grew uiion her as she worked, and she found an hour or two to devote to it every day. Wheu Mrs. Webber fulfilled her promiseof calling soon, she found a very absorbed little la dy at the easel iu the bay wiudow. They talked about pictures, of course, and Mrs. Webber, alter looking over Mrs. Garfield's work, with much interest, recommended a teacher whom she well knew. A year later Mr. Garfield met with au accident w hich will disable bim for life. They were deendent upon his salary and had lived well up to their income, therefore it be came uecessary for Mr. Garfield to do something for their support. It was required that di awing be taught in the public schools of the city. 111 which tiiey lived. Mrs. Webber's father was 011 the school board, and through that lady's recommend ation the situation was procured tor Mrs. Garfield at a good salary. Soou she began to design, ami now, aside lrom ber school duties, has regular work iu illustrating books and palters for publishers, and is grow ing to bo almost famous as au artist. 1 Her acquaintance with Mrs. Webber has developed into a warm friendship, and both ladies often bless Bridget's blender, which was the means of their getting ac buainted after knowing each oth er for years. And Mrs. Garfield looks livou that first sitting-room call as a direct act of Providence, whose mysterious workings have formed and elevated her character, and have been the means of saving herself and ber husband from iov erty and dependence. One ot two young ladies who re cently visited the city from the country wrote home as follows: " We attract :i great deal ot atten ehuit promeuadiu the streets like other latlys, and hold in up our close. MoIkmIv isn't nothiu now-n-days which don't hold up their close, and the bier you lioldcs 'em the more atteushiiu vou attract." Pen 11, the founder of Pennsyl vania, abhorred smoking, ilia Quaker council one day obNvrriiig bis approach laid down their pipes. "I am glad to sec," said Peon, "you are ashamfd of that vile ha bit." "Xot at all," returned principal friend, M we only laid tbem dowu lest w e should offend weak rind her." ltust 011 the Orange. Itust on the orattgc is confined to tlie peel of the fruit. Tho ettect is to lessen the beauty of the golden fruit as well as the size; the latter by furnishing an escape of the wa tery particles through the porous skin. It the fruit is well advanced when attacked by the disease, it does not lessen but increases the sweetness of the pulp by means of evaporation. It has still an addi tional a fleet of toughening the skin and rendering it pliable, so that tho fruit is not so liable to be dam aged by shipping. As the golden colored fruit sells for about double the price ot the rusty, it is very de sirable to growers to know both the cause of the disease and the reme dy; the can kc, that it may bo avoided, and the remedy, that the disease may be cured. That the reader may the more readily diseever and expose the fallacy, it any exists, or be satisfied with the truth of the theory, if proven, I will give tho process of investigation mid thought by which 1 have reached conclusions. In in v travels over the State 1 noticed, as a general rule, that 1. Bright oranges abounded 111 the ratio in which soluble lime was found iu the soil. In the limestone regions of Alachua, Marion and Sunipter, except iu a few cuses to be mentioned, there was very little rust. 2. Where trees were growing iu shell laud, the fruit were universal ly tuiglit. 3. In 11 few instances the fruit had been changed in a single year from brown to bright by accident ally throwing lime around the trees. These observations led 1110 to the experiment with lime, with the fol lowing results ; 4. With unburned oyster shells, no perceptible effect. 5. With bone meal, the dark co lor increased. C. With air-slacked lime oyster shells burned a bright color, autl when 8ufticieut a quantity was ap plied, a complete cure. I noticed another class of facts; that tho dark color increased iu the ratio of nitrogen in tho soil. 7. Trees standing near dwellings, stables, cow-pens, etc., had more frequently dark orauges, and oc casionally even iu limestone sec tions. . ,3.. Cow-noniiing ..frequently pro duced dark oranges iu a single sea son !). Manures abounding in nitro gen iu any form invariably produc ed dark fruit in a single season, mi less there was considerable lime either added to bo touud in tbe soil. 10. In one instance the color was changed in a single season from n bright to a dHi k color by the ap plication of several barrels of li quid draining from cowpeus. 11. Dark oranges more frequent ly followed rainy seasons than dry. 12. Trees that stand in the open field, and are neither cultivated nor fertilized, are almost invariably bright. 13. Trees that are mulched sel dom have dark oranges. When trees produce both dark and bright oranges, as a general rule, those ate darkest that have had most sunlight: 1, tho color darkest at the point and oil tho side of the orange, where the di rect rays of the sun and the rays reflected by tho sand unite; 2, darkest where the rnys re flected by the sand strike; 3, where tho direct rays fall; 4, and lastly, brighter where the fruit is entirely protected from the sun by the to- 14. Trees with dark oranges usually have dark-green foliage in dicating nn abundance ot ammonia, one of the forms of nitrogen. 15. Where yellow leaves are found on trees indicating ft defi ciency of nitrogen. ' 1 16. The microscope reveals two clases of oil cells the oiie class very minute, apparently for the manufacture of the essentia! oil, the other class of oil-cells for the dciiosit of the oil. (Xotk. The dried peel is better for microscopic than the frsh.) 1 ' 17. The yellow jteel abounds iu essential oil ; the dark is deficient. 18. Analysis of esseutial oil shows ten parts ot carbon and six teen of hydrogen. 19. When the fruit is entirely rile, aud the entire peel is colored brown, the fruit is shrunken and soft"; w hen only a part ot the peel is dark, the orange is shruukcu mostly ou the aide which is brown. 20. The niicroscote, two hundred diameters, double tube, reveals 110 fungoid, but a thin lamina, or dark, oily coating upon tho epidermis. 21. Several trees had been ui nich ed ; the mulching was removed du ring the summer and the ground under one of tbe trees cultivated. The fruit from the cultivated tree was rusty ; the other fruit was bright. 2iow, that system of tbenrie which will bo eousieleut with itself, and agree with all tlieoe facts, must Ut the true avsteui. aud will reveal the cause of the disease aud the rented v.--r. . Morr, t " tin -I ir. ' A lilt ot Murrled Experience. I married my wife about thirty, five years ago. Tho ceremony was performed about seven o'clock in the moriilng. Before retiring that evening we had a good talk with each other, and the result has sweetened our 'entire lives. We u greet I that each should always be watchful nud careful, never, by word or act, to hurt tbe feelings of the other. We were both young, and hot-tempered, both positive in our likes aud dislikes, and both 'somewhat exacting and inflexible, just the material for h life ot con jugal warfare. Well, for a few years we found it hard work to always live by our agreement. Occasion, ally (notol'ten) a word or look would slip of! the tongue or lace before it could be caught or suppressed; but we never-allowed the' sun to go down upon our wrath. Before retiring at night on snch occasions, there was always confession and forgiveness, and the culprit would become more careful iu future. Our tempers aud dispositions be came gradually more cougeuial, so that after a few years we came to be one in reality, as the marital ce remony hud pronounced us nomin ally. In thinking back we find that for more than twenty years our little agreement has been uu broken, aud theie has beeu no oc casion for confession and forgive ness. Iu business we have had adversity and prosperity, failure aud success. We raised a family ot children, and now have our grandchildren about us, and we are simple enough to believe that we have better children, and bet ter grandchihlren because of our little agreement. Under such a contract religiously kept, no ill-na-turued children will be reared, and no boys will find the streets and bar-rooms more pleasant than home. To make a good wife or a good hus band requires the co-operation of both. High Church Music. ELI PISH kin's book. My cousin Julia is learning to sing hi opera.

Interesting Fftfures. Special to Courier Journal. WASUlNftTOH, April 26. Con gressman Money, of Mississippi, has made a very effective reply to tho demagogue cry of the republi cans, and especially tho New York organ of Jay Gould, about rebel claims, which they have estimated at one to two hundred millions of dollars. Mr. Money shows that the bills introduced by Northern men for the benefit of the Northern peo ple during the forty-fifth congress, loots up nearly sixteen hundred millions of dollars. He also shows that the money expended iu the JJorth for customhouses, forts, rail roads, etc.. since 1740, amounts to two hundred and twenty-seven million dollars, as against seveuty one millions expended for the South. It may be added that tbe total am ounts actually appropriated by the last democratic house tor Southern claims are only two or theee mil lions, and are less than a republi can bouse appropriated for tbe same purpose, the money in both cases going out not to ex Confeder ate claimants, but to the so called loyal men. Such is the basis ot the last radical cry, on which they proHse to run the campaign for congress. Their Grave Mistake.

Sixty-Six Cent a Dozen for Making Coatt That Went to a Pawn Shop. Philadelphia Record. The sympathies of tbe court and the crowds gathered at the central Btatiou healings yesterdjiy, were aroused by tho story ot a respect. able. looking 'woman with a cure worn lace who was occupying: a coat in a comer of the dock to an swer 11 charge of larceny, Her ac cuser, Mrs. Emma L. Mnrriner, ot Mo. 11 Keefe street, said the wo man had been intrusted with ma terial for fourteen coats, which had been given her to make. Mrs. Mar riner said sbe was the agent for Suyder, Harris, Bassett & Co., clothiers, on Market street, below Sixth, and that the woman had ad mitted that she had pawned the goods. " "What have yon to say V inquir ed Magistrate Smith.. "I did it for bread; indued, I did !" exclaimed the poor woman, as the big tears chased each other down her wan face. "Didn't you know it was wrong for yon to pawn the goods T" in quired the magistrate. "Yes, sir; I did, and I never did snch a tbiug before, bnt my cbil dreu were crying for bread and I bad none to give them, and I was driven to do it to keep tbem from starving." "How many children have you?" asked the court. "Five ; the youngest four years of age." She explained to tho court that she had already taken steps to get tho goods out ot pawn, and to re turn theui to the agent, Mrs. Mar riner. "It's a bard case," said tbo ma gistrate, "and you may go on your own recognizance ." A collection was then taken up for the heart-broken woman, aud when she left tbe courtroom it was with a lighter heart than when she entered it. To a reporter the needle woman sa id she got only 66 cents a dozen for making the coats, aud by working hard she could make ft dozen a day. - The Agricultural College- The governor is publishing tbe following advertisement relative to tbo location of tho agricultural college: ' At a meeting of the board of trustees of tbe 'agricultural aud mechanical college of the. state of Mississippi, held in the city of Jackson, 011 Thursday, April 11, 1878, tho undersigned, as ex-ojfficio member of tlie board, and. resi dent thereof, was requested to five notice that in accordance with the provisions of the act of the legis lature, entitled : "An act to estab lish and organize agricultural aud mechanical colleges, aud to regu late the government of the same," approved February 28, 1S78, tho said board will receive proposals until Saturday, Juue 22, 1S78, for a site for the location of tho said agricultural aud mechanical col lege.
