Names or Days Their Origin.
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.

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.

A Tree Werth i5,OW,
A remarkable tree was brought to New
York in the month of January, 1806,
from a Western State. 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.
