Our Stato must noon become tho lar gest tobacco crowing and manufacturing ono in tho Union. Its toil and climate arc admirably adapted to the production of the finest qualities brought to any mar ket in the world, surpassing even Virgin ia ; and, being by far the most profitable crop that can be raised, our planters aro giving extensive and increasing attention to its cultivation.

The idols which our Saxon ancestors worshiped, and from which the days of the week derive their names, wcro vari ous, and the principal objects of their ud ointion. The Idol of the Sun. This idol, which represented the glorious luminary of tho day, was the chief object of their worship. ,l is described like the bust of a man, ait up,,,, a piar holding, with outstretched aims, a burning wheel before his hroist. J he tirst dav of thn week was cspeciallv 1 tk-ilu-utod to its niloratioti, which thoy , termed the Sun's Deag; hcn.'O is derived tiie word Sunday. The IJul the Moon. The next was the idol ol tho Moon, which they worship ed on the second day of tho week, called ' by them Mtan't Dmg and since by us, Monday. The form ofthis idol is intend- ed to represent a woman, habited in nj short coat and a hood, and two lung ears. I The monn which she holds in her hand designates the quality. The Idol at Tukro. Tuisco was at first if iiniia as tno taiiier aim ruier tu tne J etttonie race, tmt in eourse ot iimo no wa woishipcd as the j-nn of the earth. l-ioni thi eatun the fcaxou words, luuoo D-g, which wo call 'luesday. Ho is represented staniliiiir on a pedestal, ns an old venerable sigc clothed in tho skin of an animal, and holding a sceptre in the right hand. TA Idol of Wotfrii, or Odin.--Woden, or Odin, was ono of the supremo divini itics of tho Northern nations. This hero is supposed to have emigrated from tho cast, but from what country, or at what time is not known His exploits from the greater part of the mythological creed of tho Northern nutious, and his achieve ments aro magnificent boyond all credi bility. Tho name of tho fourth day in the woek, called bv tho Saxons Woden' Deihj, and by us Wednesday, is derived from this personage. Woden is repre sented in a bold and martial attitude, clad in armor, with a broad sword uplifted in his hand. The Idol Thor. Thor was tho cldost and bravest of tho sons of Wodon Friga, nnd was, after his parents, considered tho groatcrt god among the Saxons and Danes. To him tho fifth day of tho week, called by them Tior' Deaj, and by us Thurs day, was consecrated. Thor is represen ted as sitting on a throne, with u crown of gold on his head, adorned with a cir cle in front, wherein were sot twelve bur-j nished gold stars, and with a regal scep ter in his right hand. The Idol of Friga or Frega.Vn&, or Frcga, was the idol of tho Woden or Odin, and, next to him, the most rovercd divin ity among tho heathen Saxons, Danos, and other northern nations. In tho most nncinnr. times Frica or FrcL'a was tho placed a perch, on tbo sharp, prickica back of which ho stood. His head was uncovered and his visage loan. In his left hand was a pail of water, whnein were flowers and fruits ; and his dress con sisted of a long coat girded with linen. Tho appellation given to tho day of his celebration is still retained. The Saxons named it Stater'i Dtag, which we call Saturday. Thus the days of our week are derived from heathen idot'l and heath en worship. Butter-milk Pie. Three pints of but- tc-milk, two eggs, four tablcspoonfulls of i antmr n tnaannnniul of flnur stirred into the milk, and half a nutmeg. Stir well topener anri rjjkc uite a cusvin 'iv The Wart's we Use. Bo simple unaffected; be honost in your speaking and writing. Never use a long word where a short ono will-do. I Call a spade not a well-known oblong in- atrument of manual industry let home be a home, not a residenco a place a place, not a locality, and so of the rest, Where a short word will do, you always loso by using a long one. You lose in clearness you loso in honost expression J of your meaning; and in the estimation or all men who aro competent tojudgo, yon lose in reputation for ability. Tho only true way to shine, even in this false world, is to be modest and un-1 assumimr. Falsehood may be a very thick crust, but in the course of time I TftUTH win una a piace to orcax tnrougn, elegance ot language may not be in the' power oi an oi us mit simplicity ana straightforwardness are. I Write much as you would speak ; speak as you think, it with your interior speak no coarser than usual : if your su perior sneak no finer. Be what you say, and within tha rules of prudence, say what you are. Avoid all oddity of ex pression. No one was ever a gainer by singularity of words, or in pronunciation. The truly wise will so speak, that no one will observe how he speaks. A man may show great knowledge of chemistry by carrying about bladders of strango gases to breathe, but he will enjoy better health, and find more timo for business, who lives on common air. RatS. Neighbor Jones rays, that if' wc will go to a tin shop and get a lot of scrap tin, and crowd it into their holes, they will evacuate tho premises at onco.

Whore it always was." Whero's Wales?" All ovor the sea." "Very well,"said the schoolmaster, "stand there till I show a species of birch that grows all over tbo country." Homestead Law. Our Legislature enacted n Homestead Law which is certainly liberal enough for all practical purposes. The act provides that n homestead in the country, embrac ing 1C0 acres of land, and of the value of 81,500, shall bo exempted from levy and salo uuder an execution for debt. In a town of k'83 than 40,000 inhabitants, tho value of tho homestead exempted is 1,500, with thirty squaro rods of ground. In a city of over 40,000 inhabitants, tbo valuo of tho homestead is 93,000 and not to ex ceod eighteen square rods of ground. No State in the Union can boast of a moro liberal law. TobiIo Vines.

Is it because of the inconsistencies of professing Christians? "Every man shall 'give an account of himself to God." 3, Is it because I am not willing to give up all to Christ? "What will it profit a man if he shall gain the whold world and lose his own soul?" Is it because I am afraid that I shall not be accented? "Him that cometh unto Mi, I will in no wise out out." o.

The Sandusky Ohio Begister gives the following description of tho latest curios ity; A gentleman of this city is the happy possessor of a bright littlo daughter six months old. When the child was born the head was entirely devoid of hair, ex cept that portion of tho back head which, with ladies, is covered by tho waterfall, and this portion was covered with a thick growth of jet bhek hair, thrco inches long, and precisely in the shape of the most approved waterfall. The young la dy paid us tho compliment of a visit yes tcrday, wearing her fashionable but nat ural appendage. This singular growth ot uair remains, presenting a grotesque appearance, ana being only slightly re lioved by the uual crowth of fine white . will make you moro merry than a ereat deal of money for 'tis the company, and uoi tno charge, that maucs tho least.

A few days ago ho unearthed , his treasure, and round that the mice had destroyed all but about fifty dollars of it. Damascus is tho oldest city in tho world. Tyre and Sidon havo crumbled on the shore; Balbco is a ruin; Palmyra lies bu ried in tho sands of tho desert. Nino rah and Babolon havo disappeared from tho shores of tho Tigris and Euphrates. Damascus remains what it was beforn the days of Abraham a center of trade and travel, an island of verdure in a desert. In almost every seotion of tho country but this, religious revivals are going on. One of our exchanges makes mention of some 200 meetings now progressing, or but very recently closed, at each ot which from 20 to 200 persons have attached themselves to somo religious denomina tion. Paris Mercury. Illinois lieas. The small pox has mido its appearance in Pontiac, aud tho people of the place are in great alarm lest tho loathsome dis ease should sprea j through town.

It was a blaek walnut 70 feet long, measuring 4,500 feet board measure; but when cut into veneers it would be thirty times that, making 135,000 feet, which at 20 cent, would be worth $27,000. The cost oi cutting it and placing it in store for sale would be about 8700. Black waluut for the last ' six years, has been gradually taking the lead of mahogany, and is worth as much now as formerly. The figure most sought for at present is a stripe, which seems to be formed by the sap, casting dark and light shades alternately through the trees which, when worked, makes the most beautiful furniture that is manufactured. Dewdrops of Wisdom. He who teaches, often learns himself. The idoa of what ought to be, rises up from the heart what is. It is our duty to appropriate our timo to valuable purposes. He, who being master of tho advanta- jge ius moment to crush bis enemy, mag nanimously neglects it is born to be a conquerer. He that endures to tho end, tho same shall be saved. Of all tho habits, that of idleness is tho most incorrigible. We resolve and re-resolve; that is the order. We do not stick to the resolve. But we have got to repeat so often we break, 'i his shows a lack of firmnesi. .Mutual Forbearance. The house and the barn had a quarrel. The barn charecd the house with con suming its substance. But I shall fill it again, you crumbier, said the house. Al ready my sods are preparing the soil. Besides, your cattle are eating up your substance. But blame not the cattle; it is tho cattle and I that feed us. The barn has been silent ever since. Cotton growing was Unusually lucra tive last year in Southern Illinois. Jeff erson county produced one half million pounds, which at Western prices (45 cents per pound) is worth 8225,000, while somo of the counties below raised four times that amount. A young minister in a highly elaborate sermon which he preached, said several times, "Tho commentators do not agree with me." Next morning a poor woman came to see him, with something in her apron. She said her husband had heard his sermon, and thought it was a very fine one, and as he said "tho eommon ta- ters did not agree with him," he had sent 'some of the very best kidneys. What is the world ? A dream wilhiu a droam as we grow older each step has an inward awakening. The youth awakes and he thinks from childhood; the full grown man despites the pursuits of youth as visionary; the old man looks on man hood as a feverish dream. Is death the last sleep? No it is the last final awa kening. Sir Walter Scotl. Will you keep your eye on my horse, While I step in and get a drink? Yes sir. (stranger gets bis drink and comes out.) Where is my horse, boy?

In the Senate, a few days aincc, Mr Lane, of Kansas, raid: "This I know that the Republican party, of which I am a member, la crum bling to pieces, and that every day we postpone the reception of the Southern States insure the destruction of that party." Referring to the recent Connecticut election, he observed that "Ono moro victory like that would ruin tbo Republican party. . It was the flrit scratch of tho hand wilting on tbe wall." Fire Cent Coin, In the Houso of Representatives, dfew daya ago,lhe following proceedings tcok place. Mr Kasson Tho Committee on Coin ago, Weights and Measures have instruc ted me to report House bill No. 307, to authorize the coinagb of fivo cent pieces. No objection being mado, the bill wj considered, and was ordered to be engrav ed and read a third time. Tho bill provides that aa soon & prac ticable there shall be coined at the Unite J States mint a five cent piece, composed of copper and nickel, tho proportion of the latter not exceeding 25 per cent, aud of the coin not to exceed 60 grains.
