' The light in which, we look at this much mooted question has nothing to do with the political one. There are plen ty of partisans upon eit her side to discuss it ana we can safely leave the future prosperity of our country to those who are devoting their brains and breath and energies to it. But there is a view, and one of the nt most importance, that appears to be gen erally ignored in the more exciting con tests as to who shall dictate the terms of labor: who name the hours in which it shall be performed, and what the prices to be paid. Upon that we propose to say a few words, and that without treading upon the "pet 1 corns" of either of the great opposing parties. Labor was not given as an ill, but rath er as a blessing to mankind. The idea that it was the"primal curse," is ridicu lously false. ' Without labor, man would have no higher aspirations than the brute; with nothing to do, be the most miserable of beings; would, from the highest civilization sink to the most ab ject savage. It is labor and the incen tive to it that keeps him not only from being so, but steadily elevates to a high er social and moral plane. The bless ings of labor are so manifold as not to need recapitulation ; are so interwoven with our every day life as to be impossi ble of separation. It was the labor of the great Master that created th world, and the labor of his creatures that beau tify and make it yield food and comforts. Without the work of human hands, it would soon become a desert waste ; rank and noisome weeds usurp every field, and starvation take the place of plenty. Labor is among the best gifts to our race. -We know who it is that gives temptation and finds work for idle hands ; what is the natural result of sloth, and the direction in which its footsteps tend, in this world, to say nothing of that oth er and better one dimly shadowed from the thither shore. And every one, if he fulfills his high destiny, must do some thing; for each was ordained some oc enpation. If he neglects it he buries the "talents," and there can be no increase. Without work, man is the lamp of the foolish virgins, wanting the illuminat ing oil ; his journey is darkness ; at his late arrival he finds the doors locked against him. These troths are self-evident. They are no dreamer's theory or insane phi losopher's fancy. They are carried upon the eternal rocks by the tempest, stamped opon the prairie by the broad palm of the Almighty, and written in foam upon the streams. They have to labor and to produce; for the earth there is growth, and water is chained to the wheel. Every material alone labors in a greater or less degree. There is no one thing, from the most minute insect to the mighty monsters of the woods that has not something to do, if only to struggle for the means of existence. The worm works in the earth; the fish in the water; the cattle upon the thousand hills. We look abroad, and lo ! labor is found to be the lot of all, and there is no escape from the decree. ' . lAbor, then, should be no spasmoaic movement, but the business of life. It should be regular, systematic; should be governed by fixed laws. And this is the point we would urge ; is tbe one to which the mass of mankind give little heed. - The aim appears to be to avoid not to be op and doing. The returning night telletli of the shortness of the day, and should give warning of how swiftly the final one for us should come. "What soever your hand findeth to do, that rlo with -nil vonr mieht" is' a maxim that should never be forgotten. There is enough work for all, and at best much must be left unaccomplished. Better see how great can be the effort, not how little we can do ; better to work all the hours than be content with a few; better to make them all pay than fritter one away in idleness. This is the true "reform" that labor needeth, and when man acts up to it he will grow in independence, happiness and wealth. This is the "reform" in which there is no chance of failure; no loss; no blowing about by any politi cal breath of favor; the reform that shall last until the end. Be ye wise in time The People of the Cape. Hottentots have a natural antitude for war. Thev are a rerklpss neonle. lieht- hearted, light made and hardy. With their high cheek bones, narrow eyelids, projecting chin and lips, and smoke-dried complexion, they are far from being a handsome race. . But, to use a homely phrase, they have a "rough and ready" look about them ; march and fire very well; have an uncommonly keen sight; rival North American Indians in track ine an enemv bv his marks, thoueh sev eral days old. on the ground and on the bushes ; are indifferent to the shelter of tents; can eat six pounds of meat and two of bread at a sitting, and then, with the assistance of a girdle, go three days without food ; and. in short, are excel lent materials for light troops, and are rapidly trained to war, whether on foot or on horseback. Tlie Dutch burghers are generally very tall and lusty men, subsisting from their youth upwards on mutton, and living in one of the health iest climates in the world, which is total ly free from marsh miasma and contag ious disorders. When called out for the defense of the colony, they go into the field usually with a couple of horses, one of which tl ley ride, and the other they lead. On this last is strapped a sheep skin blanket, to sleep in, some trifling cnange or raiment, and some dried meat. Many burghers have a little Hottentot boy, perched like a monkey, with a handkerchief round its head, on a third horse. This attendant carries on the match the long gun of his master, and hands It to him when he desires to brine down a buck or Kaffir. From early and long practice, the Dutch burghers are ex cellent marksmen ; ana tnougn tney pre fer fighting the Kaffirs out of the bush to exnosina- themselves, under every dis advantage, in it, having no arms for close combat, yet we nave seen inai tney can fight, and desperately, too, in the bush.

A Tailor's Blunder. a nice clever trick when I set up for myself, which you shall hear. That large house just opposite to mine is Lara m ' s town residence, l maae a fishing-suit for one of the young honor ables, and was ordered -to gq over, and get paid. The hall-porter who let me in tola me to walk up-stairs. I met on the landing a little- old woman,' in a stuff gown and white apron, with a basketful of keys on her arm. I made sure she was the housekeeper, and so told her my Dusmess. "Step into this room, young man," she said, "and I will pay you." My bill was not more than fifty shil lings ; and, as soon as I received the money, I put half a sovereign into her hand. i "I'm verv sorrv. ma'am." 6aid I. "that 1 cannot afford more ; but, if you would only get his lordship to give me the or der for the Christmas liveries, J'd do. the handsome thing by you." "AndDrav what would that be?" asked she, looking at me with her little shin ing black eyes. "Nothing less than a new silk gown, that I can promise,"'! replied. "I hope you will speak to his lordship about this little matter, and lose no time.'1 - "I certainlv will do so." said she ; and you shall be informed with what effect this very day." "Bring over the news yourself, old gal, if you can," I rejoined; "and I'll find you a drop of the real stuff out of a bottle I keep in the shop." I left the house, feeling quite sure that I had secured the chance of a good or der. About five minutes after I got back to my shop, in came the butler. "Mr. Dean," said he, "his lordship Has given strict orders that on no account are ou to be admitted into tbe house again, cause of vour im pertinence to my lady." "Your lady!" said I.... .".Why, I never set eyes on her." r . I 'v . - "Kieard her tell his lordship that you called her 'old gal.'" MCh ! - what I I articulated, wide awake in a moment ; , .

I toon ner lor tne Housekeeper." Well, of course I lost the custom of Lord M . But what vexed me most, was, that I also lost the half-sovereign.. The Laws of Health. There are few thintrs with which the majority of us are less acquainted than with our own organization and the con ditions upon which our bodily health depends. And yet it is much more im portant that , we should learn how to avoid disease and toxherish health in ourselves and in those who are dear to us, than that we should possess a knowl edge of the dead languages or any other lore included in the ordinary round of a collegiate education. Physiology should be taught in all our seminaries and edu cational institutions. Whoever under stands even the leading principles of this valuable science must regard with regret the manner in which its laws are set at nought by society at large. In tneir arena, in their diet, m tneir House hold economy, in their business pursuits. in their amusements, in a thousand things tnat they do anu neglect to (to, three-fourths of the community as habitually and constantly violate the rules of hygiene as if their aim were to break down their constitutions and Bhorten their lives. Surely if everybody knew the physiological consequences of overstimulating the brain, of neglecting to protect the lungs, of overtasking the stomach, of breathing impure air, we should have less drinking, less consump tion, less dyspepsia, fewer or all the His, not that flesh is lieir fo.but that it invoket vjxmiisclf by its own folly, than we have at present. If physiology and the conditions of health were universally understood, the mortality of the human race, in large towns especially, would bo materially diminished. Personal Adornment. We are just ld-fashioned enongh to believe in making ourselves, and espec ially the gentler sex, as beautiful and at tractive as possible. Loveliness in shape and color was stamped upsn tlie flowers by the Supreme Being, who created everything "good." He gave to the ros-e its blush, the lily its whiteness, the fruit its sun-tinted Bide, and the wisdom of m doing cannot be questioned. Why, then, should not those who are next to Him in intelligence, and within whose bosom is implanted taste, and to whose eyes He gave the power of discrimination and the love of color, not make a free use of his gifts to render- themselves attractive to others, and revel in the luxury of adorn ment? Breath is not more natural to woman hood than the aesthetic- It is revealed alike in the savage and civilized; is shadowed forth even from the cradle. Babyhood delights in gaily dressed dolls, and with advancing years the desire for decoration increases. H. d there been no use for ornamentation, the means would never have been given. No wo man who loves to be arrayed becoming ly, will ever be a "slouch." The one is entirely incompatible with the other. Flowers are not placed in "frousy" hair, and the rose-bud and the geranium leaf finds no resting at an untidy throat A bit of color, a ribbon, a flashing gem and golden trinket, assist very much to re lieve a rarely over-partial nature; silks and satins were not woven to be useless, and bright tints were not stolen from the rainbow to be lost to the eye. Given the means they should not be found wanting. Personal adornment adds much to life. There is no one who does not love to look upon the beautiful, particularly in woman. Even their own sex do, though at the cost of jealousy. To man, if taste fully dressed, she is the brightest type ot Divine Art The husband admires it in the wife ; the brother in the sister ; the lover in his mistress, and the eyes of the stranger lingers long even, upon a face and form that can never be more to him than a passing vision. No one can gaze upon a "daudy" dress ed woman without a feeling of disgust ; it is unnatural for him to do so. No mat ter how "plain," art can assist nature and in a great measure tone down and rem edy the defects. But to this end cost is not alL Many dress for a merely nomi nal sum, and yet are attractive to the eye, fill the heart and taste in more than money. Be the fabric what it may, let it be fitting, properly cut, trimmed, and stylish ; don t be afraid of a ribbon or a flower, and mankind will look more ten derly upon you. Girls don't be argued out of the love of personal adornment. One wiser than any, than all of earth. gave the means and expected its use. All arguments to the contrary are sense less, and came from bigoted and jaun diced minds. ' The Growth of Gardening. It is interesting to notice the extent to which gardening has grown. In 1403 the chief products of our eardens were cabbages, onions and garlics -Apple,- pear, cherry, and -qmnce - trees' eeem to nave been theonlv fruit trees in England at that time. ' The plum tree- was first in troduced into this country in 1580, being .brought from Asia. - The eockspur haw thorn was hrst cultivated ' here in 161)2. The maple-leaved- hawthorn' was intro duced into England from America in the year 1738. A beautiful variety of alder was 'first .-cultivated ini Eneland in the year 17S0, being brought' from Switzer land, Siberia and other cold countries. The cedar was first cultivated here in 166M, and the common white larch, which now covers with such excellent effect so many wild parts of the kingdom, but is becoming . diseased, was accidentally taken to Scotland in 1737. Mr. Menzies, of Culdare, having procured four of these plants from Siberia, gave two to the Duke of Atholl, which are still in full vigor at Uunkeid, and may be called tne parents of all the larch trees in the kingdom. The mulberry tree was introduced in the reign of James I. The lime was brought into England by the Romans, but it does not aDoear to have been planted in Scot land before the reign of Charles II. The general cultivation of cairots originated with certain Flemings, who fled hither in the reign of Queen Elizabeth, and set tled at SandwichVin Kent Peas were a rarity in that same reign. They were brought from Holland. Fuller speaks of them as "fit dainties for ladies ; they came so far and cost so dear." The opin ions which prevail in respect of some flowers are curious. The snap-dragon, for example, is thought by the less ad vanced people in some countries to ex ercise supernatural influence to have the power of destroying charms and baf fling maledictions. .Bachelors' buttons were viewed as having a magical effect on the fortunes of lovers. How oddly, too, have some plants reached us ! eat fron, which was at one time cultivated to such an extent in Essex as to give its name tu a tij, uiiuo iaj uo iium Au.vau, at the risk of a life. Hakluyt was told at Saffron Walden that a pilgrim brought from the Levant to England, in the reign of Edward IU, the first root of saffron, which he had found means to conceal in his staff, made hollow for that purpose. "If he had been taken, by the law of the country from whence it came, he had died for the act." Saffron Hill, Holborn, part of .hly trardens, had its name from the crops it bore. The Detective Service. One would think crime would have learned bv this time that it is no match for the shrewd, patient, indefatigable men whose vocation it is to hunt it down and bring it to justice. Very rarely now adays do criminals escape capture and punishment We refer, of course, to evil-doers whose villanies come within the province of law, and who are pur sued and prosecuted in downright car nest; for there are rascals encrusted all Over with moral guilt who manage to evade their just deserts by sailing to windward of the statutes, and others whom the law migld reach, but at whose offences official justice winks, for special reasons. Burglars, thieves, and forgers, however, very rarely succeed in baflliug the vigilance and skill of our detective police. Their cunning is but a poor de fence against the system of intelligent espionage which is ever active in their midst; and sooner or later, they almost inevitably receive the wages of their misdeeds. If men, inherently prone to wickedness, were gifted with average re flective qualities, they would restrain their bad propensities from motives of policy. But the truth is, that moral ob loquy and lack of forecast generally go together. Rogues are poor reasoners. Otherwise they would know thut from the cordon of the detective police, linked together, as it is by the telegraphic wires there is scarcely a chance of escape for any prominent criminal. Home Truths. As sure as there happens to meat, or a poor, slmbby dinner of scraps and make-ups, so sure is the husband to take some one home to dinner with him. No child ever makes a noise; and as for babies, it is a well-known fact, that every blessed baby that ever was bora was the "quietest little thing in the world." It is rare, indeed, that you can get ,two mothers-in-law to agree upon any domestic matter, more especially upon any treatment connected with the rearing of children. One thing is indis putable: servants take care generally to answer the mother-in-law's bell the first time it is rung. As the mother grows older, so the daugnters grow younger; for if the mother is only thirty-two, it would be absurd and con tradictory to give out that her grown-up daughters were more than fifteen or eighteen at the utmost .From the want of this simple management ridiculous cases have been knowu, in which the mother, by deducting ono, or more, oil her age every vear, and neglecting to make the same deduction with her ..,,ti,r,,i lu.mitit-R. has at leiiL'th arrived to be of the same age as her daughters. A New Washerwoman. My old washerwoman died the other day, says "Parmenas Mix," aud several new applicants for the position imme diately presented themselves. I engaged a jet-black lady, who said ohe had wash ed the clothes of Governors, Senators, etc., and that her mother used to wash for George Washington. She confijeutly reckoned that she could do justice to the underwear of a common man. The first washing she brought in was hardly sat isfactory. I vaguely intimated to her that I could have washed my shirts in the creek and ironed them with a brick with more nicety than she had done, but she merely remarked that my previous washerwoman had nearly spoiled my underclothes, and that it would take her some time to bring them around all right again. The next week I found a hickory shirt, with a patch on each shoulder, in my washing in place of one of my own. She declared it must be mine she couldn't have made a mistake. When I pulled out a pair of number nine woolen socks, patched in the heels with bag material, and asked her where she came across those beauties, she seemed very much astonished, and said : "Why, honey, don' you know you own ga'menis yo' isn't gone deranged, is. you?" I had paid her for a month iii advance, and didn't say much. The next time she came she brought three worn-out cotton shirts in place of my fine line a ones, and two figured calico handker chiefs that were riddled as . badly as old battle flags. She swore they were mine, then I fished out a pair of drawers big enough for the Colossus of Rhodes with an unbleached domestic patch on each knee. She declared by all the gods on Mount Olympus that she had got them of me. Then she went away and I sat down and made a very earnest resolve to discharge her the next week. My underclothes were being metamorphosed in a manner that was remarkable, to say the least I commenced to suspect that her integrity was slightly tainted. She came in the next week with the remark : "Boss, whv don' von cet some new shirts? These what yo'hab got now is done wored out I'll hab to cha'ge yo' mo' fo' foolin' wid dese old rags." .1 dis covered that she was right they were very old racs. Thev Teminded me of the shirt I wore for seventeen months when a prisoner during the war. Pick ing up an old black yarn stocking that would have held a bushel of corn. I plaintivelv asked her where she got that? UVU ' ot,- oKn,l fA Jot'o yours. I alius keeps yo" washin' buy itself and I knows dat's yo' stockin'." I laid it aside and produced a towel that had more holes in it than a grain Bieve. She hastened to pledge me her word and honor as a high-toned, Christian lady that it belonged to me. I hen I picked up a knit undershirt that I could not have got into unless I had been ground np and shoved into it with a sausage stnffer. One sleeve was gone and the other was in the act of leaving. There was an old brass button at the neck, and the rear tail was adorned with a canvas patch in tne shape of a Greek cross. "Do you say that shirt is mine 2" I asked with a show of indignation. "Honey, yo' know it's yo' shirt," she replied. If you is ashamed of yo' own clothes, why don' yo' get new ones?" I didn't strike, her. Never shall it be said of me that I laid forcible hands on a woman. I merely kicked her down stairs and threw a chair at her. Since I have thoncht disDassionatelv of the matter. I'm sorry that I didn't give her a hint that 1 was onenaea. The Best Cure for Sorrow. Attempts to drown the sense of mis fortune in strong drink are the climax of human folly. Intoxication eventually aggravates and intensifies every evil which it is invoked to alleviate. It has been thus from the day when man first "put an enemy in his mouth to steal away his brains," and thus it will be to the end of time. No safe and sober man denies the fact Even the habitual drunk ard, in his brief intervals of reason, shud deringly ad 11 1 . s it. Yet thousands of in tellectual beings many of them richly endowed with mental gifts seek conso lation from the bottle in the hour of af fliction ; though revelation, history, ob servation, and instinct alike teach them that of all the broken reeds which weak ness ever leaned upon, the false excite ment caused by liquor is the most treach erous. . It is passing strange ! one of thase anomalies to which philosophy furnish es no cine, and for which we can only account by supposing that a power inde pendent of themselves, against whose in fluence mere reason is no sure protec tion, betrays men into ruin. There are only two genuine salves for sorrow prayer and work. Trust in heaven and keep doing, is the best recipe for every human care. There are no wounds of the spirit which it will not heaL Strength, fortitude, patience, res ignation, are as sure to be vouchsafed to the unfortunates who earnestly pray for them, and at the same time are dilligent in the performance of their temporal tasks, as 'the 'harvest is to follow the planting of the seed. Duty is balsamic. Peace is the child of worship. Curious Calculation. The vast number of inhabitants who do live, and have lived, upon the face ot the earth, appears, at first sight, to defy the powers of calculation. But if we sup pose the world to have existed six thou sand years; that there now exist one thousand millions ; that a generation passes away in thirty years; that every past generation averages the present; and that four individuals may stand on one square yard, we will find that the whole number will not txxupy a com pass so great as one-fourth the extent of England. Allowing six thousand years since the creation, and a generation to pass away in thirty years, we shall have two hundred generations, which, at one thousand millions each, will be two hun dred thousand millions; which, being divided by four persons to a -square yard, will leave fifty thousand millions of square yards ; there are in a square mile, three millions, ninety-seven thousand, six hundred square yards; by which, if the former sum be divided, it will give sixteen thousand one hundred and forty one square miles, the root of which, in whole numbers, is one hundred and twenty-seven ; bo that one hundred and twenty-seven square miles will be found sufficient to contain the immense and almost inconceivable number of two hundred thousand millions ot human be ings, which vast number rather outnum bers the seconds of time that have pass ed since the creation.

One time I ast my sister: "Don't yoa think buzzards is oile nasty birds for to eat such nasty things as they does?" And missy she said: "Why yes, Johnny, that's a fuck, but wot can you expect wen you refleck wot they live on?" That's iest like ole Gaffer Peters; who gits fooler and fooler evry day of his life. One day my father, he seen that ole man a diggin a hole for to jet a post in, and my father he sed : "Gaffer, wot will yon do with the erth wich yfiu take out of the hole?" Gaffer he thot a long wile, and scratch his head, and bime by he sed: "I guess He have to bury it in a hole." Then my father he sed, "You better left it in thisn and dug a other for the post" Then Gaffer he spoke up and sed, "It ain't too late yet" So he put the erth back into the hole wich he had dugged, and wen my father he come away Gaffer was diggin a other hole for to set his post into. But wats ol that got to do with buzzards Ide like to kno? Billy, that's my brother, he says they is called buzzards cos they buzzes a rwund dead horses, but if evry feu1 is a going to be a naturalist Ime for drawing out! There was a buzzard and it was eating a ded elephant, which smelt, and there was a lion. And the lion he turned his nose up, like sayin: "You ought to bo a shamed, you crewel feller ! But if you will eat sech innicent little things, wy don't you kill 'em for yourself, fresh?" Then the buzzard it wagged its tail. much as to say, "That's jest wot I wud do, but wen ever I find one wich is alive there is ol ways one of your vegetarians close bv, a minding it so it shant get hurt" If you reformers wude tend to yure own bisnesses yude see me Blotter em rite and left." Then the lion it wnnk its eve like it wrl how wnd th buzzard kif 'em, but the buzzard shook: itself much as to say, "Don't interrupt a feller wich is to his dinner." Never Ridicule Children. There is so great a charm in the tport ive play of fancy and wit, that there is no danger of their being neglected and undervalued, or that the native talent for them will remain undeveloped ; our chief solicitude must be to keep them, even in their wildest flights, still in sub, jection to duty and benevolence. We must not allow ourselves to be betrayed mto an approving smile, at any effusion of wit and humor which are tinctured in the slightest degree by ill-nature. A -child will watch the -expression of our countenance to see how far he may ven ture, and if he find that he has the pow er to amuse us in spite of ourselves, we have no longer any hold over him from respect and he will go rioting on in his sallies until he is tired, and seek at every future opportunity to renew his triumph. Wit, undirected by benevolence, gener ally falls into personal satire the keen est instrument of unkindness; it is so easy to laugh at the expense of our friends and neighbors they furnish such ready materials for our wit, that all the moral . forces require to be arrayed against the propensity,' and its earliest indications checked. We may satirize error, but we must always teach by ex ample to children, not oniy in what we say of others before them, but in our treatment of themselves. We should never use ridicule towards them, except when it is so evidently good-natured that its spirit cannot be mistaken ; the agony which a sensible child feels on being held up before others as an object of ridicule, even for a trifling error, a mis take, or a peculiarity, is not soon forgot ten, nor easily forgiven. When we wish, therefore, to excite contrition for a seri ous fault, ridicule should never b em ployed, as the feelings it raises are direct ly opposed to self-reproach. , Marrying at Large. A New York justice of the peace was recently called to a German house in that city to marry a couple. Putting a marriage certificate in his pocket, ne started for the festive scene. Arrived at the house, under the direction of a bine legged little boy, who pointed out the place, he knocked and went in. In the middle of the floor stood a stout Ger man girl, sorry and plump, her blue eyes rolling out tears as large as butter pats. "What's the matter?" said the sympa Ihetic judge. "Matter!" said the girl; "dat Gotleib went off and wouldn't marry me, ain't it?" The justice said he supposed it was, and intimated that he had come to marry some one, and requested the old lady to bring on the lambs to the sacri fice. Old lady said, "Dare voa no lambs Gotleib ish run off, and vil not marry my Katarina." "Well," said the justice, "Gotleib isn't the only man there is send for some ather man to marry her." At this Katarina's face brightened np, and she ejaculated, "Yah dat is goot send mit Hans." Hans was sent for, but couldn't coma. When her messenger returned, Katarina. determined not to give it np, said, "Send mit Shoseph." Shoseph was sent for, but he couldnt be found. Katarina's looks fell at this news, and the justice was growing im patient Just then Katarina looked out of the window, and saw a short and thick young German going by, when she rushed to the door and hallooed, Fntx . Fritz r Frita shortly made his appearance at the door, when Katarina's mother said, "Fritz, you lofs mine Katarina?" - Fritz allowed he did, "more as saner kront" . . "Then stand np here," cried the justice ; and before Fritz could realize his posi tion, he and Katarina were man and wife, and Katarina's arms were around his neck, and her lips pressed to his, she crying the while, "Mein husband mein Fritz !" Our duty as a correct historian compels us to say that Fritz hugged back as well as he knew how. The justice, with head erect, stepped smilingly out, leaving the lovers to themselves, and walked away meditatively, a holy calm stealing all over his massive proportions, the con sciousness of having done his dnty eleaming in his eye, and honor, honesty. and rectitude in his footstep. .
