Jean took the resolullion to write to the
Blessed Virgin. It wvs not an original
idea with poor little Jean. lie had not

lie had ofteu listened to the beautiful

Jean was six years old ; his pants were
wounlded on both knees; his light curly
hair was so thick andil rich it could easily
have dclked tihe lie:ls of two " belles; "
a pair o' blue eyes which still tried to

lie wore a little jacket cut elega:nt ly, but
which hung in threads; on his right'foot
he wore a girl's gaitr--on his left a col

was cold, for it was a winter night; and!
hungry. for he halid iasted sinel noon of

thought occurred to hint to write to the
In the ward of Gros Caillon, at the cor
ner of an avenue, and near the ]Esplen
ade, there stool a Compiler's stall for the
purpose of addressing reclamniations and
requests to the government. The Coii
piler was an old soldier, ill humored but
worthy, not bigoted and by no means
wealthy. Jeani peeped through the win
dow and saw him walking up and down
smoking his pipe, waiting for customers.
lie said, " Good morning; I come to write
a letter. "
" It's ton cents," anlswerel Father
Bouin,-for this old brave one, who glo
ried in being an old Marshal of France,
was called Father Bouiun.
Jean having no hat on could not raise
it; but lie said very politely, "theni you
will excuse me," and lie opened the door
to withdraw; hI t Father louin finding
hiiii so genteel askeud:

"Yes, sir," auswered Jean; "exactly !"
" Cosie on; ten lines and a ,half sheet
of paper won't nlake me any poorer."
Jean obeyed. Father Bouin ldipped his
pol and conuloneced: "Paris, January
17, 1857. Then on the lino wroto: "To

"In. the namie of the wonders ! don't,
you know to whom you are going to
write f" screamed Father Bouin.
"Oh. yes!" said the child. '
"'fhodf say it, and be in a hurry!"
Little Jean was scarlet. The.fact is
it is not pleasant to be compelled to have'
recourse to a publio writer for such a
correspondence; but he picked up his
courage and said:'
" It is to the Blessed Virgin that I wish
to send a letter."
Father Bouin did. not laugh. He
dropped' lfis lpen and took his pipe fiom
' Little onoe," '-'i~ihd'sternly, " I guess
yotf have not "ti': Thtenitiou to mock an

slapped, but clear right out of here !"
Little Jeau obeyed and turned on his
heels,-I say those of his feet, for his
shoes had none,-but seeing him so sweet
and submnissivo Father Bonin called him
back a second time and looked at him
" In the name of mercy!" he ex
claimed, " there is indeed lots of misery
in Paris! What is your name, petiot t"
".Jean what ?"
"Nothing but Jean.'"
I;ther l)ouin could fedl his eyes brim

" What were you sayiing of sonp a

" lWell, we mast: have some. Before

' And her, what.has she eaten ? "
" For two days she had been saying to
inc: 'I a notot hungry.'"
" Hlow did you do whoa you wanted
to awaken her ? "
"\\ell, as I always do, I kissed her. "
"Did she breathe ?" Jean smiled and
it made him more beautifil :
"I do inot know," he answered. "Do
we always breathe I"
Father Bonin turned hishcead, for two
great tears were Ion his dice is. He did
lnt answer the child's question but asked
in a tremlulous voice:
" Wlhei you kissed her, did you not
notlce anythinig ? "
"Yes," sh11 was cold. But it is so cold

"Oh, lo! Site was so pretty. Her

Father Bouin rellected: "I have en

him with tears, "do men ever cry I You
know I love you as though you were my
own. hlow foolish! Is it because I had
a mother too? It was long ago certain
ly, but I can see her still, when before
parting front nme she said, "Bouiu be an
houst man and a good christian ?" A
little image of the Virgin which had only
cost two cents, which was ever' smiling
so sweetly, was hanging by the bed-side.
I loved it tlihen, and now it returns to my
heart. I have .ciien an honest man it is
true, but for being a good christian I ani
not so sure about that!" lie arose with
tihe child in his arms, and pressing him
to his bosom said as though he was
speaking to some one unseen.
"There old motherl there! Be con

This is all. I do not give it as being

eyes. The poor woman died of misery.
WVho she was, I have never known.
What had been the martyrdomn of her

[Moogpn'ary, (Ala,) Advertiser.]
Au oldfwon~ih wnt to the postofflce a
few days ai o 56 mail a letter. She want
ed to purchase a three cent stampeil enl
velope. The price was four cents. • She
gave a uib~le and was handed a one cent,
stamp in ci/angoe. She looked at it and
said : "This is of no use to me." Then
she was given a penny. She again said :
"I can naike no use of this." Nor could
she. So the poor woman lost one cent.-
This looke like a trivial matter; but it
is not. It amounted to twenty-five per
cent. on her investment. Any merchaqt
will t [4Y4L. what that is.. It is a for
tune to the dealer when made-it is ruin
when lost. This trifling incident suag.
gested several, reflections, all tending to
the inquiry why it is that one ceut pieces
are not., used in this community, They
are used in all the large cities; and they
are nsefdl, too. There are many articles
which ae uneede4, and whicih would cost
less than a uickle-the smallest coin we
use-or the multiples of a nickle, and for
which; for want of this coin, one is com
pelled to pay more than their value or
purchase more than he needs. For ex
amplle, - pound *of crushed sugar is
worth,' thirteen coets. One must pay
fifteen aents or buy a larger quantity.
Here isa large per centage of the invest
ment lost for. want of this convenient
coin. Nor does it really boenefit the
seller, who is.only desirous to make a fair
profit on his sales, and who thrives better
the cheiper he sells hismercliandise. But
the greatest dvil in this is the wasteful
spirit iteencourages:. Economy is a vir
tneo. By taking care of small amounts
we legir better to'appreciato the value
of noti.y: "Trake care of pennies and
pouulj *li.tate care of themselves," is
an old but ise saying. No people can
become rich who do nut regard the ad
vantages of saving inrsmnall matters. -
Wastefulness is eucouraged by this in.
difference to a penny, and habits of pro
digality.ilusensibly'rtsult from it.
TIHE PUBLIC SCHOOLS.
MI:.. E'rton :
It is proper that some report should he
made to the Public to account for the ap
parent neglect of duty of the School
Board, and in answer to the numerous in
quuiries whicl. are made by citizens in
tcre.teil. lrpose - n: ooucisely as possi
ble to give an unoflicial statonment of the
affairs of the Board, and an explanation
of their action. The Board oentered upon
its duties under very eoubarrassing cir
culmnsta;nces; for somle time no books or
records of fruner Boards were before
tlemn, and when finally reiciv ed, the Trea
surer's Book was unaccomlpanlied by any
vouchers, and the Secretary's Book was
simply a blank, containing no proceed
ings whatever of the former Bloard.
With nothing in the past as a guide, it
was evident the Board would havo to
begin precisely as if there had been no
schools in the parish, aud endeavor grta
dually to reorganize them. To dothis the
Board could scarcely be in a worse con
dition fiuancially. A warrantof 76 un
encumbered was received amounting to
$1131. Against this fund t ro suits for
services of teachers in 73 are now pend
ing-one for $780 and the other for $51i0
with another claim of sanio nature for
$160. Until these claims are decided, the
proceeds of this warrant can hardly be
considered available by the Board. In
August, under the State distribution, the
parish received ..333 which still remains
in the Treasury, less $4 used for Secre
tary's book and stationery. Each citi
zen can decide for himself how far the
Board would have been justified in con
veiling the Public Schools, remembering
that so far as the Board is informed there
is but one Public School house in the
parish, and that sorely in need of repair.
A slight calculation as to what would
really be noodoed to properly organize a
sufficient number of Public Schools for
the parish will be instructive. There are
ten l'Wards or School Districts in the
parish, each of which would doubtless
claim one white and one colored school.
Suppose that half of these required first
class teachers at $40 per month and the
other half second class teachers at $20
per month-andl we have for a session of
tdn months $6,000 required for salaries of
teachers alone. Add to this 19 school
houses to be provided, with benches,
desks, oto., and estimating these at $100
each, aud addiung $100 for contingent ex
panses, we have a total of $8,000 which
would he really required to place the
schlools of the parish upon a proper foot
ing. This work, or as much of it as pos
sible, has to ble accomplished by the
Board vith a school fund which is not
likely to exceed at present $41,000 per an
num, of which amnount only $513 has at
this date (October 1st) been recoivcd.
Art. 5., Sec. 5 of "Digest, of Laws relat
ing to Public Education," says: "Be it
further enacted, etc., That said Parish
Board shall limit the aggregato anual
expuense of accommodating and maintain
ing the Free Public Schools of the Parish
to the amount of rvenuue derived from
the State, Parish and such donatious as
-shall be madeo by public-spirited ditizens
br or towards the support thereof."
The Boardl has been of.the opinion that
some funds should be secured to at least
provideo houscr for the schools; and thai
to open the schools without the ability
to sustain them was simply a waste of
the School funds, with no practical beno
lit to the pupils. The system heretofore
generally pursncd of opening the schools
for a few months and closing them again
the greater part of the year fur want of
mnens can show n. advlantages which it
has confetrrcd upon the children of the
piarish, and has caused the loss to the
poo0lo of largo stluims of money.
Should the Board conclude to postpone
theo.opetting of the schools until JanMary
next, antd using. th9 funds of this year as
a reserve for tlhe hoxi two years, it is
probables that.thb schools may bhe sus
ta-ineo- zile. -or let vimo thls of: sichyolm :
At the end of that time either a better
method of collecting the Poll Tax may
be atlopted, or the parish may he linan
cially in a condition to hoar a
small increase in taxation to aid the
The Board is fully aware of t he im
portance of Public Schools and does not
need a rouminder of the pledges given at
the last .canvass that the schools should
be reestablished ; but in the absence of
any better, plans, the Board, giving its
time and attention gratnitously to the
publio'service, will endeavor. to accom
plish thu most good with the least pos
sible expendliture of means.
A discussion in this counlitnication of
the litireut nmethodls plropose would oc
cupy too much of your space. If dlehild
I will state thoen at another time, hoping
that other citizens who are interested may
suggest plans better or more practicable.

Cotton, what is left by the
wormts, has been blown down and
consequently destroyed. Corn
that remained ungathored-and
there is a groat deal of it-has
been thrown down, and of course
will rot, even if it is housel. The
bright prospects of a largo cane
crop, wh ch greeted the eye some
two weeks since, has fled, for there
is'hardly a stalk in the course of
the storm that is left standing.
We estimate one-third of the crop
has been destoyced, others of wider
experience, say on-hlalf.-Iber
The cotton crop has been dam
aged considerably. Visited by
the. caterpillars and right upon
their heels such a storm, most as

not riquired, and soime few signs
were ouserved in localities not cal
