Go away, I'm bus jV A little, perplexed face lifts it self anxiously to the fretful mother's as if wondering at the cold rebuff so undeservedly, so suddenly giren. J place in bere. indeed, 1 nave no other in ' the world !' looks the laby eyes. Go away from my mamma: I have nowhere to go.' Sure enough, where should the baby go but to its mother's heart ? and what business can there be that has the right to usurp, for one mo ment, this tiny little monarch ? It is a new dress that must be completed, 1 suppose ; cr it is a' bit of finery for baby herself ; or it is a new book full of enchanting situa tions : or somebody has called and 'or these simple matters a little heart must be grieved, and the whole world made cloudy to a little mind. Mother, you are wrong ! Let me tell you something. I love new books, new dresses, finery, and call- ers ; out tor the sound ol one uttie voice hushed into eternal silence, for the return of one little one gone away forever, 1 think I could give up all the world, and never ask it again. These little ones are infinitely precious to us, and to them mamma is all the world; and one unkind word from her can hurt the tender, sensitive little heart past all telling. And one unkind word spoken to these innocent listeners leaves its impression in indelible marks, whieh often are never obliterated. Little children are of all crea tures the most helpless and depen dent, and they demand, by right, care and attention on the instant. Baby knows a want, an absolute necessary attention, and it holds possession of the minute senses and must be gratified: and in the beauti ful trust and faith, she turns to mamma. Mamma, don't put her away ! Dronathe sewine. or the book, and take her up in your arms and loye her; for it is just as necessary to the "welfare of her being as water when she thirsts, or food when she is hungry. I don t believe in petting child ren too much it spoils them, and they expect it always. 1 feed and cloth mv children, and that is enough,' says somebody. These are temporal wants, that must be attended to, but they are not all of a life. Pats, kisses, smiles, forbearance and patience are just as milk, flan nels and socks; and the baby who comes up without them misses what God meant should be the portion of all the little, tepder creatures in the world. These simple messages from mothers heart do much toward making the man or woman. Child' characters are bat reflections of our own; and if we give them gentle words, and show a patient willing ness to bear with them, are we not certain to see them come back to us glorified by the imitation ? Oh ! what a world of cold-hearted ness, selfishness and utter indiffer ence is conveyed in the command, "Go away ! I m busy ! Need we wonder, in the years to come, if we find our boys seeking happiness outside of the home circle: or if we are put aside by our girls, and hear them declare, "Mother is such a bother !" and try to exile us from their secrets, and indeed their lives ? Don t put the little ones away don't have any business that is sup enor to their wants; love and at tend them for their own precious sakes, and for our own in the days when we shall be the suppliants and they the ministers. A Needlewomen's Syndicate. The needlewomen ot rans are about forming themselves into a so ciety or syndicate, to protect their interests and to struggle against those employees who are constantly reducing prices. There is a differ ence ot oO per cent, in the prices paid for the same work by certain establishments,and there are inter mediary agents who often find their remuneration at the expense of the ouvrieres, The wages of a needlewoman vary from one to three francs per day. The payment for sewing a water proof varies from 20 to 13 sons, and the finishing of it from o too sons piqueuses, if skillful, can gain francs per day. Added to all this there are two months of a dead seaj son throughout the year. An ordinary dress with corsage is paid at the rate of 6 francs, and requires the labor of two days ; a costume with a corsage Louis XY. with flounces, etc., is paid at the rate of 23 francs, bat exacts ten or twelve days of close work to finish it ; linen caps, whether for children or women, are paid at the rate of 5 franca the dozen. From the San Francisco Golden Era. Utilizing a Jack Rabbit. Tbt Extraordinary Story told by a Montana Miner Useful Fishliues. While my friend Clyde and my self were oat in the hills back of the Golden Gate Park last week, a jack rabbit came along, and stop- ped to look at us. If I had thought to briDg my reyolver along we would have jack T marked on toast for breakfast to-morrow. Not with my consent,' he re- plied What reason can you give for nnl rtftTispntinfr? A rabbit saved my life, and I o have not killed one tince, and will never kill one again.' How did he manage to save your ife?' 4 Three years ago I was living in Montana. A smeller had just been built, and it created a demand for silver rock. I owned a interest in lead that had been sunk on 30 It. Thinking that the time had come to make it available, I concluded to go there and get some ore and have it tested. 1 did so ; and reached the place just in time to take shel ter in the mine from the terrible hul-storm. 1 lighted my candle, went to the bottom and went to work. I had not been there mors than five minutes when I heard a noise that sounded like a cannon. The rock over my head shook, and in a moment the shaft behind me caved. You can imagine my feels ings better than ' I can describe them, when I found myself buried alive. 1 tremble even at this dis tant day when I think of that mo ment. The root of the shaft was rocks, and when they came down they did not pack so tight but what the air came through. There was nothing that I could do to release myself. I knew that if relief did not come from the outside 1 must perish. No one knew 1 had gone there. A road ran past the mouth of the sift ; but it was not traveled much, and I was not likely to at- tract attention by calling ; never theless I shouted at intervals all djv The following morning I commenced calling again ; and all day, whenever thought I heard a sound, 1 shouted. When night came all hope3 of being released abandoned me. One thing added great bitterness to my suffering. I owed quite a large amount of money, and, should my fate remain unknown, my creditors would think I had fled to defraud them, and my name would be stig matized. I will not dwell on the agonies I endured ; I am sorry I cannot for get them. The morning of the lourth day of my imprisonment I heard some thing crawl into my grave. 1 light ed my candle and saw a rabbit. There was only one aparture large enough to admit him; I closed it to prevent his escape. I saw in him food to appease my hunger, and my hand was raised to kill him, when a thought occurred to me that pre vented the blow from descending, had two fish lines; their united lenghth would reach to the road. I took off my ehirt, tore it into strings, tied them together, and on to the fish line. 1 wore a long, gold watch chain ; I tied it on to the part of the line that would cross the road. I then cut several leaves from my diary, wrote on them my condition, and tied them on to that part of the line that would be outside. I then tied the end made out of my shirt around Jack's neck and let him out. He soon reached the end of the line, and I knew by the way he was pull ing that he was making desperate attempts to escape. Soon the tug ging stopped, and knowing gnawing to be Jack's chief accomplishment, I thought he had cut himself loose. JLbout three hours afterwards I felt the line pull, and some one called; I tried to answer, but the hoarse noise I made died in the cavern. I then pulled the line to show that I was not dead. All grew still again, and I knew the man had gone for assistance. Then came the sound of voices ; I palled in the line, and it brought me food. It took all the men who worked in the shaft nine hours to reach me. A very large pine tree that stood near the shaft had been the cause of my misfortune. It had been dead a number of years and the storm had blown it over. The ter rible blow it struck the ground had caused the cave. ' Jack had wound the line around a bush, and tied himself so short that he was imprisoned outside as securely as I had been inside. He was taken ' to town, put in a large cage, and supplied with all the rab bit delicacies the market afforded. He, however, did not thrive, and the boys believing that he ' pined in thought,' voted to set him free. He was taken back to his old grid ling grounds and liberated. He not only saved my life, but became the benefactor of all the rabbits in the neighborhood the miners refraining from shooting any, fearing it might be him.' Cotton Manufacture Changing Ease. A Northern paper discusses cer tain changes in trade and manus factures in the North and East, such as have been brought about by Atlantic telegraphs, by extension of railways, and by the varying conditions of agriculture and the mechanic arts. Finally, it has to say of the man ufacture of cotton fabric3, this : On the other hand, certain bran-, ches of our production have been overdone. There are large woolen and cotton mills which, for the past tea years, have not paid ot per cent, profit. The cotton mills of Massachusetts are compelled now to reduce their productions by onei quarter. This means a great change in the business at the points of distribution and sale, such as New York and Boston. It would seem that throughout the world certain articles of necessity have been produced beyond the demand, and for a time capital must be with drawn from various branches of manufacture. It is a period of ebb and flow in the tides of capital, and this means great uncertainty in business. These remarks touch only on the fact that cotton manufacture in the North no longer pays as formerly. The reasons assigned for that fact, are, however, false The truth is, that the rate of wages, the cost of living, the freights on raw material and the short work ing year, have slowly and surely transferred the area of profitable cotton manufacture to the South and the Middle States. The des mand for the coarser fabrics, negro wear, has also greatly fallen off, for the freedman purchases now for him self and buys pinchback jewelry and kicshaws with one-half the money with which his planting owner bought brogans from Lynn, linsey from Lowell, and osnaburg from t all Kiver. This has contrib uted to cut off the margin of profit, and in addition thereto is the much greater fact that capital, enterprise and labor has been diverted in the Southern and border States from agricultural and planting to manu factures. affording a home market for the staple, gaining a home market for the finished fabric and findins that the saving of two freights, or ten to twenty per cent. in labor, and another twenty per cent, in the working time, give them leaves to undersell the North ern and Eastern factory. tlence the rapid increase and full profits of cotton manufactures in the South, especially North Carolina, Georgia and .Alabama With the aggregation of capital this process grows faster, and with the full .development of the cheap coals in the Kanawha valley and in Northern .Alabama, the progress will be still more accelerated unti within the next twenty -years the States south of the Potomac and east of the Ohio will manufacture the whole of their textile fabrics and New England must seek mark ets outside of the United States. Norfolk Virginian. Bricks Twenty Centuries Old. A correspondent of the Cleveland Leader, writing from Persia, says "Coming from .Bagdad, which, in a direct line, is forty -four miles dis tant, three lmense mounds appear in succession, which have the ap pearence of natural hills, But close examination shows that they are composed of bricks, and are the remains of large buildings. These are on the east side of the Eup hrates, and the largest is about one hundred and fifty feet in height Thev are suposed to be an ancient citadel that defended this part the town, the royal palace and temple. How immense must the original buildings have been, when it is considered that these mounds have been the storehouses from which, for twenty centuries, bricks of the finest description have been taken to build the great cities c Csesiphon, Selucia, and Bagded Fragments of alabaster vessels and images, fine earthernware, marble, and great quantities of enameled tiles, the coloring and glazing of which are still surprisingly fresh, can yet be found in these mounds. On the face of every brick is stam ped, in cauneiform, the name and title of Nebuchadnezzar: They are all laid face downward, and the cement in which they are imbedded is so hard that they can only be detached with the greatest difficulty. Query. That was a funny old coincidence that happened in Washington. While the Democrats were jubilat ing after the Ohio and Indiana decs tions, so we learn from a special telegram in the Baltimore Sun, a queerly attired individual was seen perambulating the avenue in the vicinity of the White House, hav ing, evidently, somethig in his mind. After meditating a few mos ments he turned round in at the main entrance and walked up to the front portico. He drew from a basket, which he carried, a bottle containing a dark looking fluid, with which he besprinkled the stone floor. With another drive into his basket he brought out a placard, on which was printed in arge letters. "For Rent." After affixing this to one of the columns, and satisfied' that he " carried the news to Hiram," he disappear ed. .After a short time one of the White House employes came out, and in a melancholy manner pro ceeded to remove the placard. Pro bably the republican party will be disposed to rent its interest in the Executive Mansion for a small sum in the nether months of tho good Centennial year 187G. Stranger things have happened. Will the placard-poster be a bad prophet: The Seven Wonders of the World. The seven wonders of the world were : First.

European Savans in American Insti tutions. - Prof. Proctor writes to The Acad erny in reference to the policy of the importation by .America or European savans as proiessors in colleges, di rectors ot observatories, ccc, and remarks that at all the chief centres of scientific culture, whether in New England, the Middle or Western States, he found the general sentn ment favorable to such action. He, however, states that while at the college of his adoption such a per son meets with a warm welcome, and is regarded with special pride, as was the case with Agassfz, elsewhere he is looked upon with jealousy, especially among those best able to weigh the merits of American science. He thinks that it is only among the less well-informed Amern icans that the qualities of the Amer ican leaders in scientific research are undervalued, and this merely because shortcomings are imagined which have no real existence. He remarks that the Americans, who are best able to judge, know that the elaborateness of European scien tific training is less effective than their own more practical system and they consider it unfair that the claims of their best men should be overlooked in favor of strangers. Stephens Overated. If there was any doubt before of the kind of statesmanship Alexander 11. btephens possesses, his recent speech at Augusta should give the key to the calibre of his mind. Mr. Stephens has all his life been much overrated man, and the power he has wielded in the bouth has been extraordinary in view of his talents. His judgment is not equal to his fluency. His eulogy of General Grant for his action in Louisiana was, to say the very least of it, out of place. His endorse ment of the third term places him where he has almost always been in his career, with the few impracticables who ride strange hobbies. Nearly all the politicians who are silently favoring the pro ject have something to gain by it. Mr. Stephens has nothing but ap pears to be actuated by a pure spirit of contrariness. Transfusion of Blood. The experiment of transferring the blood of a live lamb into the veins of a consumptive patient was successfully performed upon the person of Hermann Dubois at Fall River last week by Drs. Julius Hoff man and Weyland, of New York City. Every vein which is con nected with the jugular vein of the animal was severed and securely tied by the physicians, so as to allow the blood free egress to the arm of the patient. Dr. Hoffman used a small glass tube, about 2 inches long, slightly curved, for the opera tion, thus bringing the neck of the lamb in very close proximity to the patient's arm. The operation oc cupied one minute and thirty-three seconds, about 6 ouncesof blood be ing transferred in that time. Mr. Dubois has been afflicted with con sumption more than two years, and his frienns thought it best to try the experiment as a last resort for relief. -At last accounts the patient was doing well. 2tt7 The, Nashville correspondent of the Sk Louis Republican, in a very readable, letter, upon Tennessee pol itics, says; .
