The following parody on "The Laat Rose of
Summer," will bo specially appreciated at this
season of the year,
'Tis the last hog of Autumn,
. Left squealing alone;
All Ii:a gruniing eimpanions
Are butchered and gone;
No pig of his kindred,
No porker is nigh,
To help empty his swill trough,
Or share in his sty.
I'll not leave tliee then lone one,
To tarrs iu the pan,
Since thy inalea arv all pork now,
Thou ahull ba salted with them.
Theu thui do 1 urf.r
Tho knife to thy throat.
That tbua ahull be pickled, '
Like every dead ahuat.
And may I bs present
Whru tliou ait the tiW,
For ham, sauce and aauaagca,
Who would not eat?
Wheti people are hungry,
And beef eau'tbe had, ,
For calming the appetite .
Pork is not bad.
There's a great deal of truth in
these lines: , . w
We'll chase dull care away.
And baniah every aorrow, '
FuBsoniamj, pay your debs to day,
And we'll pay ouia to-morrow.
A Dutchman's Distinction.
In the Ninth Ward, New York, lives
an eccentric butcher, by the name of tlerr
Vorjscliip. He keeps a little meat ttore
and often amuses bis customers with hia
curious comments on iniilicri and things
in general. Hia wife ia a patient hard
working woman, willing to turn her bnnd
to anything to gratify him. When Iier
husband goes out she attends the (tore,
and can slice off a steak or carve a roast
as well aa her liusbund.
Mr. Brown is a rcijular customer of
butcher Vonsclup. He ia a cai-h custom
er, and has an abhorrence of accounts.
One day when Brown purchased a roast,
he waa short of change just five cents.
Mrs. Vonsclup served him and he said to
"I will tako the meat liorne and return
instantly with the five centi. Don't mark
'Dnt beet all right, Meister Brown, i'
replied the butcher's wife.
Brown hurried borne: During hit ab
sence the butcher returned, and hit wife
returned to the house. Preaently Brown
came back and hurriedly approaching tbe
butcher, laid: -' "
"Here it the five centi I owe you," at
tbe tame lime handing out the coin.
" ot 1" aiked the astonished Von
sclup, "I owe you fire cents and here it ia."
"You makes mistakea Meister Brown I
never trust you mit nolin," replied the
"No, no, I owe it lo you. Since you
have been gone I bought some meal of
the lady and did not have enough to pay
her by five cenls, and
"Lady! You buy meat of a lady in
mine shop! Vat in ter turel do you mean
by dat eh?" ;
"Are you crazy, mnn? I mean I pur
chased a roast of the woman who attends
here when you are absent." .
"Der voman rot sells meat here?" .
"Yet." ; ' y'
"Mein Cot, rat you mean den? She
bees no lady, the ish my wife-'' , " ,
"You are an infernal fool!", replied
Brown, throwing tbe lire cent piece at
the butcher and leaving in disgust.
"You beet anuder fool Meister Brown
to take mine frow for a lady. Ha! ba!
dat bees a good choke." ; ?
JsW If the poor houae baa any terror for
you; never buy what you don't need. Be
fore you pay three cents for a jewsbarp,
aee if you ean't make just aa pleasanj a
noise by whiatling, for inch nature fur
nishes the machinery. And before you
pay aeren dollars for a figured vest.young
man, find out whether your, lady love
would not be just aa glad to aee you in a
plain one that eott half tbe money. If
the wouldn't, let her crack her own wal.
nuts and alto buy her own clothes.

A Temperance Lesson.
On Tbanksgiviug afternoon, we went to
ee an old gentleman, Uncle 8 , who
lived on Long Ialand, on hit farm, near
Brocklyn. Mr. S -ia from Germany,
and baa been for tome yean a strong tem
perance man, although bro't up with an
ardent appreciation of the virtues of the
"Undo," said we, aa we drank a large
tankard of cider, while partaking at hit
bountiful table, how came you to relin
quish the use of wine?"
"Well," responded the hale old gentle
man, unbuttoning hia vest to make room
for the third plute of turkey, to which ho
had helped himself, "I tell you, den:
When first I came from Jar many, we
moved into Lancaster county, Pennsylva
nia, nnd dt-re wat no wine; to, erery year
we mnke a barrel of cherry bounce, and
we all gett trunk on it regular every Sun
day evening. Nchl Shpring when der
bounce wat all drinked 'up, I geefi ter
cherries to der hogs. Der consequence
wat, der hoga git ahoost at drunk, as
a lot of beenlet.
"Bye-and-bye, hoga gel aobcr again,
and triet dem mit anoder meat. Der
hogt wat very hungry, and come ruonin'
up to the trough, achquealiu' like der
tuyvel; (leu dey stick in der shnouts, and
ihmack deir chops till dey git a taato-of

deir yard mit deir mouth wide open and
deir tongues hanging out, and rub de
ground agin deir noses, to take away deir
inshte. Hogs couldn't stand it nohow
make dem orful sick.
"Old (ltd said, 'neffer geefs it up dat
way;' so next week I geels der hogs an
other mess of der cherries; and when I
come mit der bucket to feed 'em, right
away dey teen something wrong. Up
dey all walks slowly (o deir feed; nnd dey
schmelt der cherries, dey all turned right

"Ever since dat lime, mine poy, when
del prandy subject comet up I thoott

mit der subject." , . ,
We felt at though we had heard an im
pressive temperance lecture, and congrat
ulated ourselves that Uncle S had
strengthened the conviction that temper
ance wat better than indulgence. V. Y.
- A Slight Difference.
Some time ago, one Sunday, we wend
ed our way to one of our churches, and
instead of a sermon, heard an address
upon some miasionary or benevolent sub
ject. After the address was concluded
two brethern were sei.t around with the
basket for contribuiions. Parson L., who
waa ono of the basket bearers, tuking
the one on which we tat. Immediately
in front and upon the next teat, negligent
ly reclined our friend Bill II., a gentleman
of infinite I umor and full of dry jokea.
Parson L. extended the basket to Bill,
and he slowly shook hit head. '
"Come Willium, give ut something,"
said the Parson.
"Can't do it," replied Bill.
"Why not? It not tbe cauee good
one?";. . .. , .-
"Yea, but I am not able to give any
thing." : . :. . ..
"Pohl Pohl I know better, you mutt
give fe better reaaon than that.",
"Well, I owe too much money I
mutt be jutt before I am generout you
know." ., , , :;: .
"But William you owe God a larger
debt than you owe any one elae."
"That's true, Parson, but then he ain't
pushing me like the balance of my cred
itors." "" ; . " ;:. .

A Catholic Miracle,
Tho reformed and Kotnanited Free
Lover, Dr. Nichols in a recent lecture at
Tioy, N. Y., relates mirnclu which waa
performed in Washington City, and wit
nessed by Jamet Buchanan.: -
A few yeart ago there lived in the cily
of Washington, a Mis. Matlingly, a
devout Catholic, of a very respectable
family, and a lady well known iu the com
munity in which she resided. She bad
been tick (or terun years of a cancer of
the sttmach, which had progressed to far
aa to make itt appearance on the turface
and bad entirely cripp'ed bcr in the arms.
She wat so weak nnd low of the disease
that often a mirror was plaoad before her
face to see whether the wat aliv or not.
Her disease wat contidcred incurable by
her medical attendanti in Washington
anj she wat given over to die.
When there was no other hops her
friends wrote to a Hungarian prince, who
was also a priest, a very devout and holy
man, whoie prayers had often been an
swered in hia own eountry, and the fame
of whose deeds had spread far and wide
in respect to her case. He replied that
on a certain day, at a certain hour, he
would tav mass in behalf of the sufferer,
which should be celebrated in her pres
ence at the same time, calculating the
uifference in longitude, nnd that she
should also receive the holy communion
The period fixed upon arrived. She lay
in bed, and it appeared that the wns
never to low at on that morning. The
ceremony was performed and she received
the holy communion, nlthouh it waa at
first doubled whether the could turvive
it. In a moment after it wat completed
the rose from her bed, returned thanks,
went down ttairs and receive! the con
gratulations of over three hundred visi
tors who came to rejoice orcr her recov
ery. All iTmptomt of disease had van-.
isliod, the ulcers had disappeared, and
the cure waa effected instantly. Among
those present on tht ocoation was Presi
dent Buchanan. Tho lady died in Wash
ington three or four yeart ago. I could
mention other cases at occurring in this
country, but this one ia sufficient for my
purpose. ' . I bring it forth as an attesta
tion of the divine character of the Roman
Going to Bed.
Going to be we have always consider
ed one of the most sober, serious, and
solemn operations which a man can be
engaged in during the whole twenty-four
hours. With a young Indy it is altogeth
er a different thing. When bed time ar
rives, she trips up stairs with a candle
in her hand, and if she has had plentnnt
company during the evening, with some
agreeable ideas in her head. The candle
on the toilet, and her luxuriant hair is
speedily emancipated from the thraldom
ol combs and pins. If she usually wears
"water curls," or uses the "iron, her
hair is brushed very carefully from her
forehead, and the whole completely so
cured; if not, why then her lovely tret
set are toon hid in innumerable bitt of
paper. This task accomplished, n night
capappeara, edged, it may be, with plain
muslin, or perbapa with heavy lace, which
hides all,suve her own tweet oountenanoe.
At toon at aha tiea the ttringt, she prob
ably takes a peep in the glass, and half
smiles and blushes at what aha aces. Tbe
lightisout her fair, delicate from gently
pretses the couch, and like a dear inno
cent, lovely creature at the ia, the falls
gen'.ly into sleep, with a smile on her still
tweeter face. A man, of course, under
tbe same circumstances, acts quite differ
ently. Erery moment in hia chamber
indicate the coarse, rough mold of hia
sullen nature. Wben - alt is ready he
snuffs the eandle out with his fitigert.like
a canibal; and then jumps into bed like a
savage. - For a few momenta he thinks
of all the pecadilloea he may have com
mitted through the day, vowt a vow to
amend toon, groant, turnt over, ttretches
himself, and then all it silent save the
heavy breathing of tbe alumberer.

The subcribers to ti e 7 iJun in Lynch
burg have paid for their papers; we hare
taken their money, and shall fairly and
fully earn It, according to contraot. If
thm direct us to tend their papers to tome
oilier Post-Office, we shall obey the re
quest; otherwise, we shall tend them aa
originally ordered. If you or your mas
ters choose to nteal and destroy them,
that Is your affair ut all stents, not ourt;
and if there it no law In Virginia to pun

her and, our plundered subscribers. If
the Federal Administration, whereof you
are, the tool, after monopolizing tbe busi
ness of mail carrying, tees lit to become
the accomplice nnd patron of mail-rob

rulers can be put into high placet at

odds of the Government.
Foa at IIome
. Don't be afraid of a tittle fun at hom
gond people! ; Don't shutap your houses'
lest the tun should fade your carpets; and
your hearts lest aSiearty laugh should
shake down tome of the mutty old cob
webs there? If you want to ruin your
sons, let them think that all mirth aud so
cial enjoyment must be left on the thret
hold without, when 'they come' borne at
night. When once a home it regarded it
only a place to cat, drink, and leep in,
the work ia begun that endt in gambling
houses, and reckless degradation. Young
people must hare fun and relaxation
somewhere; if they do not find it at their
own hearthstones, it will be'sought in oth
er, and perhaps in lest profitable, places.
Therefore, let the fire burn brightly at
night, and make tbe home nest delightful
nilh all those little arts that pireats to
perfectly understand. Don't reprett tbe
buoyant spirits of you children; half an
hour of merriment round the lamp and
firelight of home biota out the remem-i
brance of many a care and annoyance du
ring the day, and the best tafeguard they
can take wiib them into the world ia the
unseen influence of a blight little domes

Nature's Song In the Night.
Night hat ite tongs. Hare you erer
stood by the tea at night and heard the
pebbles ting and the waret chant God'a
glories? Or have you never risen from
your couch and thrown up the window
of your chamber and listened? Listened
(p what? Silence, tave now and then a
murmuring found, which teems tweet
music then. And have you not fancied
that you beard the harp of God playing
in Heaven? Did you not conceive that
yon atart, that those eyea of God looking
down on vou, were also mouths of tong
That every star wat tinging Gods glo
ry, tinging at it shone Ita Almignty Ma
kers and bit lawful, well-deserved praise?
Night hath ita kongt. We do not need
much poetry in our tpirlt to catch the
songs of night, and hear the spheret aa
they chant praises which are loud to the
heart.tbough they may be silent to the ear,
the praise of the mighty God, who bears
up the unpillarcd arch of Heaven, and
moves the etart in their courses.
