O, loTely June, once more I hail Thy gontle power along the vale, - Over the hillside, over the glen, ' :- Away from the busy haunts of men, Along the brawling brook I see Clear tokens of thy majosty. Thy floral sister, May, retires, And quits the field. Thy sanguine fires Deep permeate the fertile soil, Producing fruit, rewarding toil, Inspiring love and adoration, 9 To the great Author of Creation. Tho clover now is in the bloom, ' Tho wily spider works his loom; The hum-bird . whizzing through the air,- " Appears a spirit, .with plumage fair; , While in the orchard's lovely.bowers The cuckoo's note beguiles the hours; The whipporwill adown the vale, Pours out her sweet, nocturnal wail ; Or in the forest's awful gloom, - The great owl hails the rising moon ; . But when the lovely morn appears, Serenely smiling through her tears, ' The rural thrush, the live dayjong Carols her ''bena coma" song; Meanwhile the hawk, with pinions fair, In graceful circles swims the air; The squirrel- springs from tree to tree IIow happy the industrious bee, And all the myriad forms that rise . i Inspire their sweetest melodies. ' ;' ' Twits thus in old Arcadian days, ' : ' . . Virgilius Maro tuned his lays,. ' Moving the hearts of rural swains, 1 ; : ' : Led captive by his artless strains. ' Not so, the present race of men R. D. N. For the Telegraph. WHEN WATERMELONS RIPEN. BY MRS. HELENA BASCOM. ; Wheri fairest May has passed away. ' - And gone Is bright-eyed June, When July's breath is hushed in death, And not for us too soon; When August's brand hath scorched the land, ' And fairly's o"n the wane, When watermelons ripen Then look for mc again. When robin seeks her nest again. Remodels it all o'er, And there hatches out her fledglings, ,-Jnst as, th year before; When, she's Wed thorn, to the woodland, All that pussy may not catch, When watermelons ripen, For your coming I will watch. : : !- When the days have fully rounded " Past the middle of the year, When the woodstre softly saying, '-" " ''Next month will don the sere.;" When the air's oppressed with stillness, Silent save the wild bee's hum, -. -. - When watermelons ripen, - ' Then, dearest, I will coma, When the first flower of the spring-time Its tiny seeds hath sown, And the later ones are sleeping . Within their wildwood home; When the meadow's shorn and empty, -And the lark's low nest forsook, " 1 'When watermelons ripen, ' :- For your coming Ltvill look. . When robin's rearedher fledglings J The second tirae this year, . i When the meny lark hath two times Fled the mowers coming near; Twice the meadow grass hath languished j 'JSTeath the knife so truly set, When watermelons ripen, .. I will not our tryst.forget. From the Geauga Republican. AFTER THE VERDICT, WHAT THEN? Augu8t4th, 1874,1 wrote to my wife, then summering, in Geauga Co. concerning the Beecher case: This scandal will divide churches, if not families." The prediction, made previous to any comments of the press, so far us I kno w, should relieve ""me from being thought a mere echo, and its more than ful fillment warrants me td forecast the future .again, as to the possible bearings of a verdict of acquittal for Mr. Beecher, or a disagreement of the jury; for it ; seems to be s foregone conclusion in i tho public mind thai one of these results must follow. r The faith of a majority of the people, especially a majority of the church element, though rudely sha ken, BtilLclings to Mr. Beecher, not- j withstanding . the terrible rnayY6f evidence "from unimpeachable wit- nesses, and his still more damaging letters and, admission while on the witness stand, all pointing with un erring finger to the inevitable con clusion of guilty. - Not to believe it is to stultify the obvious meaning of tho English language. , Not to believe it is to cause human creduli ty to break down at every step un der the accumulating load of tho ab surdities of his defense. Why should it be thought a thing incredible that Mr. Beecher should commit adultery? It is notably in this direction .that human nature is the weakest; man, the aggressive an imal, is in this regard the most in satiable of all. Not a day nor an hour passes, but that ho takes his life in his hand while ho seeks the gratification of his passions, in the adulterous bed. Nor is this infirm1 ity confined to the lower walks of life; for, while it is probable that this sin is mora common in the ex trem lower class, it is undoubtedly more common among the aristocra cy; than among the great middle class, the more common people. This is not because of any essential difference in men, but from natural indVbvious causes. 'Luxurious liv ing begets tho desire idlonoss and moro Jintiraato sooial oontact affords the opportunity. - " ' ?'"i' ' Tho olergy havo ; hitherto feeori subject to tho great temptations; society has not only allowed but domnnded Frtr them agreatei liberty in the families of their parirfionehf than is accorded to other gentlemen, thus giving tho unprincipled of either sex . tho opportunity for in dulging in illicit love with compar ative impunity. This fact in no wise derogatory to tho great body of ministers, who, are tha best and pur est men. But' they have sliown themselves under the-disad vantages intimated so suporhuman that wo should bo astonished beyond inoas uro at tho obscuration of tho great luminary of Brooklyn? Counsel for the defense, to accomplish their des perate purpose of placing the inno : cunt for the guilty, have assigned various motives and reasons why the plaintiff and his witnesses; ac cording -. to their . theory, enter ed into s ' conspiracy to ruin Mr, Beecher; but with each succeeding effort the weakness of their cause is more apparent, resulting in glaring absurdities, running counter to al previous experience.-. The testimony foiHhe plaintiff, I repeat, Stands, and ever will stand, nnimpeached; and. notwithstanding the volumin ous testimony introduced to blacken Tilton's character, the time will soon come, whip in contrast with his wily calumniaror, he will tower above him in oWrv moral attribute, like a colossus'-j-' ;!'-'' - - Many are carried away by the current of Mr. . Bcecher's emphatic and solemn denial, deeming it im possible that he should bo capable of such Jastonnding jyingand hypocn sy as his guilt implies. Let us rea son together a little on this point. Mr. Beecher says m one of his let ters to Moulton, "He Tihon" had coruloned his vsife s offense ana en treated me in tJie tnost solemn man ner not to betray his wife nor leave his children to a bliuht. 1 his is true. Til ton "had condoned the of fense." Beecher had also . "hum bled himself before Theodore Til ton as he did before God." True he de- riies this language, but it is in the same strain and tending as all the rest of iiis heart-breaking and re morseful letters, and is undoubtedly his own. He'-1 liot ; only humbled himself, but his repentance seems to have been sincere. Whatever ex planation could be made he would do; but alas! he robs the household of the jewel of virtue can never make restitution.1 Still he did what he could. "Of course I cannot see Elizabeth again," he sobs, but he complied with the general purposes of concealment. Such a crime, How ever, was a ghost not lightly to be laid. "All the devices by which they had tried to save, themselves had proved worthless." Then came the statements and counter state ments, then the whitewashing com mtitee, and finally Mr. Beecher, ful lv committed to the Dolicv of deni al, falls into the hands of his lawyers ana is led step oj step in the vain hope of saving his great reputation, and of diverting the disgraoc which would fall npon the famous family, into a labyrinth of wickedness un- parallelled, in view of " which we justly stand appalled. .wow, n tneso premises are correct. what ought to be the attitude of the community, and especially of the churchjtoward this lubidinous priest? There is a growing impression among the common people that cler ical rakes, are by" far i too leniently dealt with. There has beon a nota ble instance within a year, where a ster was brought before an eccle- cal court for seduction and bas- rj and, in .the face of .bodying statement of bis victimupported by unequivocal corroborative evidence, whs allowed to go unwhipped of justice, simply; from the fact, of his own denials. If the woeful day shall ever come, when J,ha Christian JUhnrch snail have ven the appearance of being corrupt in its leaders and teachers, or. shall be- cdme the partizans or apologists of mjon of dubious antecedents, then the people f will, ' with ' one 'accord, conclude that the less they have to with the church tho better. The question at issue, is not primarily be tween Tilton and Beecher ; it ia far reaching and infinitely above the principals or their partisans, touch ing the very Jounoatioa;:.of sooiety and morality. What a spectacle! This adulterous priest sitting astride the neck . of . the church, and with the most brazen1 assertion "voclfera tirig his innocence, and demanding the heads of the witnesscss who ap pear against him! It is a significant fact that, while the Protestant Church ,- has been wrangling for a year as to whether Mr. iieecher's remorseful lotters were caused by a crime or a pecea- dillo, the Church of Rome moves on with litlle portentious pugeant and power to conquest, special envoys from the -Holy Father bestows the Cardinal's beretta in . New York, while Boston, Milwaukee and other cities are made the ... scene of special proselyting effort. ---Meantime, Mr.. Beeohcr preaches at the Catholics on the jury, though ostensibly to his church, substantially, that in all es sential matters he is at one with his "der and venerable brother, the Pope." I predict that the children of tjiis "dear and venerable broth er,"! whose hands are still red with the blood of Christians of Mexico, will,' reciprocate by rendering, as far as they are concerned, a verdict of acquittal. Rome would hardly lose so good an opportunity to cast her influence tor the division and dis grace of Protestantism,thinking, and not (without reason, that the masses will'turn away in disgust to the chuich whose doors are ever open to the poor.

The whole of our sailing fleet havc-l returned, after their perilous voyage among the heaviest ice-fields ever seen on these coasts, and not a single disaster has happened; not one ves sel has been lost or even seriously in jured.

" Had tho sailing vessels done as well propor tionately as tho etoamors, the fishery would uavo buou splendid; but tno heavy ice arrested their movements and the majority returned to port "clean." . Some of the steamers made splendid hits. The Porteus, owned by J. & W.

This firm has received, in all, 90,000 seals this season, equal in value to thrioe that number of dollars. This beats gold mining hollow. The firm . of W.

Last year serious apprehensions were awakened by finding that the great bulk of the seals were in an imma ture condition, even so late as the 20th of March, when usually they are in their prime; but this year no apprehension is felt on this score. Sheridan's Matrimonial Troubles. ' "Oh, Phillip,""laTd Mrs. Shoridan to the General yesterday, "bow can you agitate my nerves so?" The General was in the act of lifting a bottle of wine to his lips, but paused in opened mouth wonder. "Eh?" he said, "what's the matter, my dear? You surely don't object to an old soldier's taking a glass of wine?" "An old soldier!" said Mrs. Sheri dan scornfully. "Will you ever give up these rude army expressions? What I particularly referred to.how ever, was the shocking impropriety of drinking wine from the bottle. If you must drink wine and event ually, Phillip, it must be stopped why don't you take a wine glass, or at least a goblet?" "H'm!'" was the good tumor ed reply, "goblet? wasn't 1 going to goblet?" Here, however, Mrs. Sheridan manifested symptoms of hysterics, and after looking at her with a sad- but curious expression for a moment the General silently placed the nntasted wine on the sideboard and went into the back yard, whistling thoughtfully to him-1 self. "I think," said Mrs. Sheridan after he had gone, "that matters will be pleasant in this house after a while; but it ia too evident that Phil lip has been - dreadfully unsteady these many, many years. Rochester Democrat. Mr. Stanton and General Sherman. In the account of the great review at Washington at the end of the; war, which Gen. Sherman gives in his Memoirs, he states that he refused to shake hands with Secretary Stanton when he met him there upon the grand stand, occupied by the'Presi dent, .the Cabinet and other officials, and invited guests. "I shook hands," says Sherman, with the President, Gen. Grant and each member of the Cabinet. As I approached Mr. Stan ton, be offered me "his Iland, but I de clined it publicly, and the fact was universally noticed." Of course Gen. Sherman here sates his own recollec tion, but he is entirely mistaken, as we think and we dare say there are witnesses of the affair who will'ton finn our .impression; . ?: '''' At any rate, we can speak for one who stood very near to tho President at; that time and saw the scene which Gen. Sherman describes. Knowing lat had passed between Sherman ana Stanton tnis genueman waicnea them very closely. 1 hero was no of fer on the part of Stanton to shake hands with Uen. Sherman, nor any approach to a friendly salutation. Looking sternly but quietly at the Goneral, the Secretary of War bare ly ! inclined his head without any mark of personal recognition, as if a mere' stranger had come upon the stand. His hand was not extended towards Gen. Sherman,nor even rais ed; He had no wish to shake hands with Gen. Sherman, and no thought respecting him, except that he was a man dangerous to nis country, wuuau presumptuous ambition he had just been able to put down, and he treat ed him accordingly. - - There was certainly no friendly feeling in Mr. Stanton's mind toward saaarman at anv time after his treaty wkk Johnston had reached Wash, ingtem. Not that he had, so far as we are aware, any . personal antago nism toward him. Ilia motive was Jiigher; although we at the time, and Btill think,tkat his judgment of Gen. Sherman's motive was too severe. Mr. Stanton and General Sherman. N. Y. Sun.

It has been su'psed that tho Si erra sequoias, or big trees of Califor nia, were confined to a few small, iso lated groves like those known to tourists by tho name of Calaveras. Tonlumne, Merced and Mariposa, scattered at considerable intervals along the western slope of the moun tains for a distance of CO miles. It was known that a collection of big trees, larger than any of those in tha Mariposa and Calaveras region, ex ists in Fresno county, where Thom as' Mill has, for several years, been sawing this red wood of the Sierra to supply the market of Visalia; but it was discovered last summer, that this body of big-tree timber is not properly a grove,but a forest extend ing for not less than 70 miles in a north-west and south-eastward direc tion, with a width in some places of 10 miles, and interrupted only by tho deep canons which cut across the feneral courso of the forest, and re uco the level to an elevation below that at which the tree is found in a wild condition, although, when cul tivated it thrives in all our vallevs. ' Different persons havo traced the forest from tho basin of tho Tula River, in lat 30 deg. 20 min., across the Eeweah and Kings to that of San Joaquin. The elevation has not been carefully measured, but it ia supposed to vary from 4,000 to 6,000 feet At one point, and at ono only, this forest is accessible by a wagon- road, and this is at Thomas' MilL 43 miles from Visalia. Unlike the groves turtner north, this forest consists mainly, and in some places, almost exclusively, of the big trees, and there are also a multitude of small pines, in all ages of growth, some just sprouting, and others saplings only two or three feet through. Tho largest standing tree, as yet measur ed, is forty feet in diameter; a char red stum the tree itself having dis ¬ appeared measures forty-one feet' across. A tree twenty-fonr feet in diameter, four feet above the ground, is precisely the same thickness sixty feet higher. A fallen trunk is hollow throughout, and tho hole is largo enongh to drive a horse and buggy seventy-two feet in it, as in a tunnel. jThis forest is so extensive, the tim ber so abundant and excellent in quality, and the demand for it so great in the bare valley at tho foot of the mountain, that ' it cannot be withheld from the ax and the saw mill. The wood is similar in general character to the coast sequoia, or common redwood, straight ia grain for furniture, and far superior to oak in: its keeping qualities in positions exposed to alterations of D-.oisture. The Sierra sequoia does not throw np sprouts from its stump as does tho redwood, and can therefore be felled out more readily. Don't Worry About Yourself. . To retain or recover health, persons should be relieved from anxiety con cerning disease. The mind has pow er over the body. For a person to think he has a disease will produce that disease. This we seo effected when the mind is intensely concen trated in the disease of another. It is found in the hospitals that surgeons and phy8icanswho makea specialty of certain disoases are liable to die of -it themselves; and the mental power is so great that sometimes people die of deseases which they have only in imagination. We havo seen a person sea-sick in anticipation of a voyage before reaching the vessel. We have known a person to die of canoer in the stomach when they had no can cer or any mortal disease. A blind folded man slightly pricked in tho arm hat fainted and died from be lieving that he was bleeding to death. Therefore well persons, to remain well, should bo cheerful and happy; and sick persons should have their attention diverted as much as possible from themselves. It is by their faith that men are saved; and it ia .by their faith they die. As a man think cth so he is. If he wills not to die he can often live in spite of desease; and if he has little or no attachment to life he will slip away as easily as a child will fall asleep. Men live by their soujs and not by their bodies. Their bodies baye no ife of them selves; they are only receptacles of life, tenements for their souls, and the will has much to do in continu ing tho physical occupancy prgiviug it np.- ilwral New Yorker. - Talking about frauds in canned goods, it was shown by reeent inves. tigation in New York, that in a ease of clams, the solid contents of a one pound oan weighed eight and a half ounces; two-pound cans contained sixteen and three-quarter ounces.
