How "Uncle Tom's Cabin" Came to Be Written. It was In Mm year 1850, when tbe whole country was Id n blaze of ex oltetuent over Mr Webster's sevcnth of-Mnrch speech nnd the Fugitive Slave Law, tbat Mra Stone joined her ImalmiKl In lirutifuvick, Maine, whom lie bnd acccepted a profesßor ship in llowdoln College, lier brother Ndwnrd wrs at tbla time the pastor of a church in Hoston, and Mrs Hl.own received frequent letters from him and from his wife teeming with heart rending iooldouta of unfortuuatca fleeing tor Canada, and the won and niiEory that bml oomo to rnanr a negro home. In one of thoso letters Mrs ISoeolu-r exuliiimed : "() llnttio! Jf 1 could ouly write as you can 1 would write. something to make tbe world feel what an awful soourge slavery in I" Mrs Stowe's ohildreu well remember bow she rose from ber chair, crushing this letter in her bund, and with tbe color mounting to bur check exclaimed, "1 will I (Joa help me, 1 will if.l livol" Mrs Stowe's family bad removed to Cincinnati when she was about twenty years of aae, [and there she had bad usual opportunities for ob serving . tbe practical workings of flavery as an institution. At this time ber brother, Charles Jieoohor, was in business in tbe city uf New Orleans in a large commission bouse wbloh bad frequent dealings with tbe slave plantations. He also kept a journal of bis observations and experiences, (tils letters wore full] of inoideuts bearing more or less re motely on tbe practical influence of slavery. There was an actual Legree, whom Mrs Stowe's brother Charles met on tbe boat returning to bis Red River plantation with a miserable gang of slaves tbat be bad purchased in Mew Orleans. In 1839, while still >t Cincinnati, Mrs Stowe received into ber Jain ily^tis a servant a colored girl, who, accord ing to tbe laws of tbe state of Ohio, was free, as she bad been . brought into tbe state and left by her mis tress. Hearing tbat tbe girl's master was in the city looking for her, and that she was in danger of being seized and carried back to slavery, Professor Htowe and his brotber-in-law, Henry beeober, both armed, drove with the fugitive, une night to a lonely farm house, from which she was speeded on ber way toCsinada. It is from this incident in real life tbat Mrs Htowe wove the story of Eliza's escape from Marks and Tom Loiter. Uncle Tom was largely an ideal character, .but tbe leading traits of the composite portrait were drawn from many conversations that Mrs Stowe' bad with trembling fugitives, who, on their way to Canada and freedom, found in her house tood, shelter, kind wordß, and pecuniary aid. Tbe first fourteen years of Mis Stowe's married life were a dismal struggle with ill fortune, ill health, and poverty. As tbo seminary in wbicb ber husband tbeu taught was in financial straits Professor Ktovro'H meager salaiy was very irregularly paid. J I ib health, frail at tbe best, broke down complotelyunder exaspei ating and perplexing complications connected with bis duties in tbe seminary, and tbe effects ot tbe un wonted climate. Certain nverzoulous students tried to promote tbe cause of bumunity uud abolition by ostentati ously consorting with uegroen and parudiiig tbe streets with young colored women, thus at once showing their contempt for all race prejudice and awakening tbe wrath of the Cincinnati mobs, tbat threatened to go out to Walnut Hills, and burn down the seminary buildings 'and wreck the piofetsor's bouses. This was tbe last straw for poor Mr Stuwti, siiid, collapsed and despairing, he bad to seek a water oure in tbe Kast. Then oiiuiu an avvtul visitation of cholera, and tbu death uf their youngest child. In spile ot all, tbe luavt* little mother wrote articles tor tbe papers and magazines and managed to feed and clothe her cbildreu and write letters full ot hope and cheer to hor poor, despairing sick busbaud. At lust klid borself win striokeu down with a painful and dangerous illuesi. JSut she oould still trust and pray. And pray aba did bo fervently mid with H'ioh faith that ber soul was hum into a new aii'JJglorious experi ence of (Jort's greutueas and love. In 1850 she joined ber luinlmud in Maiue. After hor resolve was fcrmod month* clasped before she was able to carry out her intention ot writing something to mako tho world realize tbe borrorti of slavery. The writer in obliged to confess that he was him self the principal liindrauoe just at tbat time. In December, lßuu.JMrs Stowo wrote to Mru Edward lieeober' "As long as tbe baby sleeps with me nightri 1 can't do much at iiuy tblug, but 1 will do it. 1 will write that thiug if 1 Jive" At luut tbe visiou oamel Kbe wus in the little church in Uruuswlck during tbe oonimuniou service.

They both sobbed violently and too youngest cried out: "Oh ! tnnrunin. slavery is the most mused thing Id tbo world." ■ Krom tbeen experiences came at last tbo bonk. GLOB E SIGHTS.

There is generally someone to see that you are unconfortnhle, and kept 80. . i After a man baa been kind, several times, it is regarded as a part of bis plain duty. It is said that oot one person in ten is polite. Have you looked your self over lately? It Is always safe to distrust a man who smiles when be has reason to look displeased. Every time you become confidential with some people you bear of a new kind of dirty trick. A clear consoienoe doesn't do a man much good, it be has eaten some thing be shouldn't. it is a rare mau who can put on a now pair of suspenders, and get them right inside of a week. There are no more important or tiresoma questions, probably, than temperance and orthodoxy. The proudest man we ever knew had nothing to be proud of but bis whiskers, and they were red. If a mau spent 75 cents on his wife's kin, and doesn't like them, how the sum grows in his talk about it.

Thousands of song have won tran sient popularity, bat comparatively few have beoome permanently popular. This element of vitality in muaio is a secret which composers, critics, publishers liave long striven to dis cover. -Like genius, it refuses to be defined. The very oldest favorites are what are called folk songs, th»t have origi nated nobody knows bow. Two Irish favorites are "Kobin Adair" and "The Last Hose of Hum mer," the words of ;tbe latter .being Thomas Moore's. Oi'tbe Sootoh three prime favorite are "Auld Lang Syne/ "Coming Through the Kye," and' "Annie Laurie," Burnt" supplying the words for the first two, while Annie's charms were described by her devoted laddie. William Douglas. The souk goes straight to the heart, and the British army sang it all through the Crimean War, when Each heart recalled a different name, but all sang 'Annie Laurie.' The 'French have furnished two splendid war songs, "Malbronk" and the "Marseillaise." The first, author unknown, was intended to deride Queen Anne's great general, Marl bor ough; but be defeated the French so thoroughly that the song was adopted liy England, nnd is beard there to this day. The "Marseillaise" was the great song of the French Revolution. It was composed, woids nnd music, in a single night by Houßet de Lisle, an army officer. It is generally deem ed the finest of national song?. England also has a grand one. l (.io<i Save the King," written and compos ed at white heat in .1740 by Henry Carey, aud sung by him the next day tit a patiotio oelebntiun. About 1832 Rev. B. F.
