The flrm for widen he dally measured tape and rolled and unrolled yard after yard of goods for the Inspec tion of fashionable dames who seeai to look upon dry goods clerks as a species of automation wound up ami set going for their amusement, never tired and never run down, had given him a holi day, and now hurrah for the country •ud tbe glorious June breezes, the mur muring of brooks, the smell of the new mown bay, tbe tinkling of cow bells, aud the bright eyes of country, mai den. «. George felt like a boy newly let out of school. Long years had passed since he had reveled iv the innocent delights ot.rural pic-nies, sport, anil rambles, but his heart had not lost its freshness nor his spirit its bonyancy. Tape had not tied down his elasticity, nor had piles of dry goods smothered his capaci ty for enjoyment. One evening during the precedingan tumn, while passing through an unfrc queuted street on his way from his .tore to hi. boarding-house, George encoun tered a burly ruffian who had seized a young girl by tlie arm, ami with ribald jests and obscene oaths, was trying to lorce her to enter some refresiimcutsa loon of doubtful reputation—either mistaking her character, or sii-lcieatly i.iflamcd with drink to be iudifterent to her social status. A well directed blow from George sent the wretch sprawling upon the ground, where he lay partially stunned and afraid to rise lest ho should be met with another dose of tlie same medicine. Having disposed of the assailant, George's next car. was tor the victim, who leaiicil against a friendly tree. Her face wa. closely veiled, but her voice, as she thanked him for his assistance and protection, though tremulous, was low aud sweet. George, with a graceful disclaimer of any merit iv the act ho had ju*t per formed, drew her trembling firm Within his and r__iK_.-e.tl the privilege of ac companying her, that he might siwrq-hcr from further annoyance or molcsth-lon, This wa. gladly accorded him, and af ter a short walk they paused before the door of a i_.nd.oinc residence in an aristocratic quarter of the city, where, after learning his name and address, she liable him .'it'iiou, thanking him in the warmest marinof far his kindness, but without removing her veil, or asking him to call upon liar. From this day, however, George. po sition iv the house ot Hayes & Co,, seemed to uncle rgoa mysterious change. Before, he had lived upon starvation wages, was snubhed by his superiors, and treated as underclcrks too ftcqucnt ly are. After this adventure hi. duties were made lighter, his treatment from the linn much butter, und hi. Hilary raised by degrees until it reached a fig ure which enabled him to dre.s well aud live ii) goqd style. On the morning when our story com mences, Mr. Hayes called our hero into the counting-room and addressing him kindly, said : "Shaw you have worked hard during tlie winter and spring ; dull times are coming on; don't you think you need a holiday?" "Yea, sir," replied Goorgc; 'ibutyou know my means are limited; My salary is all I have to depend upon, and 1 can not afford to be wasting my time." "Don't let tb,at trouble you, my boy,' said Mr. Hayes. "Your salary shall go on just the same during your ahseence; and here is a check lor a hundred dol lars to start on. Consider this a present frqn. (he firm. Now, where do yoii propose to go?" George, overwhelmed with astonisli T ment at this unexpected liberality on. the part of liis employers, coi'lcl only stammer ot|t that the Idea never hav ing oc.cuneti t<> hlw before, he had lormed no plans In reference to it.— i .Veil, then," said the good old genllc _ei.ni, wiih a m.errv twinkle in ins eye. which George, In his embarrassment, tailed to notice, "let me plan for you.— You can take the up-nvcr train to-mor row morning, niul by ilark you will reach tbe little village of IT , which i-no.ieila'.iionjrthe hill.of —Coun ty, lull of trout stream*, with plenty of shooting anil the best grove, antl ram bles for pic nic'parties in tho whole country. There is an old funnel- living there, whom I havo known for many years. 1 will give you a letter to him, anil you can make your home with liini, at a trifling expense, during your ab sence from the store.'" George was too thankful for the un expected liberality granted to him to liini any fault with Mr. ll'* selection of a place for .pending his vacation, even If his rural tastes had uot inclined h:m to just such a spot; aud on the evening ofthe day following the conversation with tho old merchant, the H stage sat him down iv front of an old but t'oniioi'lalile looking farm house, at the has* of a majestic hill, with broad lawns and meadows lying In front of it, traversed by many a winding slrcain. He wasteceived with a cordial w_. com_ from the stalwart farmer, and a grasp from a brawny hand, which showed that the heart went with it.— "Conic In, stranger," said lie, ootae iv —we aint exactly prepared for visitor., though Mr. Hayes did talk some about sending up some young folk, to keep us old ones company. Come in—mother will IK- up 50,,,,, place f„ r -~,, to sleep." A .upper of new-laid egg*, home made bread and freshly picked straw berries, was spread upon a snowy ta ble •cloth, and tho party of four sat down to the table. There woro the old man. Ins wife, George and a fott-th per son, \vhnsu position in tlie family George wa. at a loss to divine. She was clad in a plain gingham dress, had evidently been helping to prepare tlie supper, and ad-re_.d tlie old farmer and hi* wife as nnele aud aunt, but surely George thought that delicate Hugo of rosy red upon her cheek was never acquired upon a country hillside, those hands could never have been pre served bo soft and slender in milking cows and washing dishes, that aristo cratic poiso of the head, that dainty curve of tl|n neck anil that perfect seli pos.ses>ioii was the result of something else besides country training. He went to »leep between sheets of saowy whiteness, pillowed upon a yielding bed of softest "live geese feath ers," aii'l dreamed ofthe farmer's niece until he wat awakened by the sound of an opera air sung beneath his window, nnd executed as none but a carefully trained voice of unusual sweetness could execute It. He sprang to the window, and through the half-drawn curtain, saw only the young girl In her cotton gown and suubonnct iv tlie kitchen garden cutting lettuce for his break fast. He dressed and descended with an ap petite sharpened by mountain air, and be set about forming the acquaintance of Julia, or July, as she was called by ihc farmer, at once, and so successful that In half an hour they were chatting like old friend.. Spite of her aristo cratic air, he could not draw from her any admission that she had ever known the pleasures of a city life, and George was puzzled to know how she had be come possessed of sq much information relative to music, the fashions, aud the small talk of fashionable circles, which is supposed to be the sole property of the favored few. Soon a ramble wa. proposed, aud with the grace of a fairy and the light step of a mountain sylph, .he led him "through brusl. anil through H'l."'-," to g.»«o entranced upon the beauty of the sylvan scenery. George began to wonder how he had ever boon attracted by the stereotyped smiles and empty talk of city belles, while listen ing to her glorious descriptions of Na ture's beauties, almost as It seemed, in the presence of Nature. Got 1 .. This was but a prelude to other walks, drives, fishing parties, pic-nlcs, ai|d rural cif oui-ious. it) ail of which she .cemod the queen. One day when, the time allotted *qr his stay was drawing to a close, they were in a boat upon a neighboring pond gathering water-lilies. Julia had made for herself a wreath, with which .he had Adorned her beautiful head, and was fashioning another for Geqrgc, wiien, i.l reaching too far for a particularly flue lily, she lost her balance, and with a scream, fell into the water. George plunged after her, and the boat floated away, lier rescue seemed easy at tirst, for the shore was not far distant, and be wa. an excellent swimmer; but soon, to his horror, he found that she, was en tangled in the stems ol the lilies, \, hieii had torm/'il a thick network beneath the surfaou, Vigorously ho struggled to extricate her, but iv vain. Then, in that moment of deadly peri), flashed, up on h'tir. the truth that 1(0 loved tl.e girl Who rested, half unconscious with, ter ror, upon his left arm, while bo sruport- ( ed lier and himself upon the surface'with his right. "Save yourself," cried Julia; "if both ci',iinot live, at least do not let two lives be sacrificed." '.'Neyer, Julln," he replied, firmly I -If you die I have no care to live, for, , Julia, you are my life. Tell me, Julia, here, struggling on the brink of eterni-. r y, do you i'ctiti-i) my love f" "I dr.," Mm softly murmured; and, as tlieii- lips jollied lv the first kiss of a tvui: and it.rvcu__ -tlceUoii, she fainted. i "Oh. God 1" cried George, will no one ■ come to our aid ? Must I die now when I hold in my arms .11 that can make life dear to 1110? At least, kiud heaven. , save l_r, and let me be the .sacrifice, if ■ sacrifice tlie re must ho." Tt seemed as though heaven had heard and answered his prayer, for almost at the same instant one of the farmer's men appean! Iv sight, and answering George', frenzied cull for )..)p, sprang into another boat which was lying at 1 the landing place, and In a few mo ments George almost exhausted and his unconscious companion, were, lifted . into it. That evening fully recovered,' . they both .tit in the vine 00wired porch ' ofthe cottage. There was no need now of shy ness or coyness. The talc of love had linen told, anil with her head upon hi. shoulder aud his arm around her dainty waist, both were reveling iv tho sweet delirium of "love's young di'oam"' * 'It may seem tintiuideuly, George," .lie suddenly said, raising her head from her shoulder, after he had been "pnintingin glowing colors the delights ofthe cottage homo they would enjoy together, some time in the future when ho should have, earned money to have a home to otter her—-"It may aocm un maidcnly in me to say so, but I would much rather you many me and tako me with you." "Would that I could my darling," re plied George; 'but you are poor I know, nnd, a. for myself, I am a clerk on a salary which though large enough for one, would be but a small pitauce for two." "Never fear for me," returned Julia laughingly; "1 am a famous housekeep er and while we have each others love, what other luxuries shall wu need. ' "But,dearest can|you bear uplagain.t tbe poverty which is all the marriage portion I have to give you?" i"Otui I r" was the womanly reply— "can If" "Will you try me ?" And so the matter was settled,and lv a few days George Shaw was mar ried in thu ijuiet sitting room of the old farm iion.su, and with his bride set out 011 liis return to the city aud the dull routine of measuring tape and peddling calico. Great was his surprise when the cars reached the depot to Unl Mr. Hayes hi* employer, waiting for him on the platform. "Ah, you young scamp,"' he said Joc ularly, you found somthiiig beside trout dream, hi the village of II , did you ? You've made short work I see.-- Mr*. Shaw 1 suppose, lam happy to welcome you madam." "But how in heaven's name Mr. Hayes, dill you know 1 was married, and coming home to-day f" cried George in a still greater maze ot bewilderment. "Nevermind where 1 got my Infor mation," .aid the old guißlemai. "I know how you havo been driving over fences aud through ditches, tumbling into mlllponds and pulling young ladies out, but my errand here is not to scold you. As soon 8* 1 learned of your marriage I know your former bachel or lodgings would not suit, and I took the liberty of engaging other quarter, for you. Jump into the carriage both of you, and th. driver will attend to the baggage," If Georges surprise was great before how much was it euchauced when the carriage drew up at the identical door to Which he had escorted the veiled young lady whom he rescued lroin the grasp of the ruffian more than a year before. Tho happy pair wore ushered Into the handsome parlor, and Julia withdrew to change her traveling dross for oue more suitable. George was engaged in examining the gni-gco.s paintings which adorned the walls, when a pair of soft arms were flung around his neck. He turned, and there stood the same figure in the identical dress and veil whicli had leaned trembling against a tree while he polished ofl a brute on a pleasant .summer evening long before, lie lilt ed the veil, antl beneath it found the laughing, blushing face of his own Ju lia. ''Sit do .11," .aid 'she while l_tell you my .lory. I fell in love with you at tirst sight, but I am t f.i romantic, turn of mind and always entertained a holy l_r.rar of being married for ray mopey. It i« high time you should know mas ter (leorge that I am an orphan ami rich one too. This house I. mine and my credit is pretty well established at Stewarts and Tiffany.. I took your address and made sufficient inquiries abont yon to ascertain that you were poor and overworked. I had your sal ary increased and procuredf'or you the vacation which procured forme a hus band : A nil now, master George what do you think of your couutry sweet heart?" George's reply was much more im pressive than words could make it, and would have continued much longer if Julia had not complained that he was rumpling her dress and pulling down her hair, He drives a span of fust horses, now and never regret, the lucky moment when he knocked down a brute and pulled a pretty gin} qqt of the mill; pond. ■ * • |C_P I>Q|t't rely upon fr.iunds, Don't Fe.y !.noii the r|ime of youiancestor.— Thousands have spent the prime qt _j|i., in the vain hope of Whom they called friends; 1..

Little girls arc em ployed in bellows blowing (very hard work for children) for fourteen hours a day, standing on platforms to enable them to reach the handle of the bel lows, Night work, overtime, and tho very nature ot tho employment, cannot but have a very disastrous influence ou their health. The foundry boys, It I. admitted by the masters themselves, commence work at miich too early an age, and arc taxfcd far beyond their strength ; and the children who work at home iv the various domestic manu factures, arc so inftired by pi. inatiiro labor, often commencing trom the age of seven, that, as a rule, they arc stunt ed, dwarfed, or deformed. An Instance is given ot a fanner having worked his three young boys from four In the mor ning until twelve at night for weeks to gether, until the other men "cried shame upon him." Overwork Is sys tematic ; 1,200 boy* under 15, and '-,400 youths between 13 anil 18, work through the nights of every alternate week.--- Iron chain, are wrought in this district, and thero Is no employment In which boys arc subjected to a greater amount of labor. Eich link Is formed by weld ing together at a white heat the end. of thick piece* of rod iron, a man and hi. boys striKhig alternately with the great est possible rapidity lest the iron should cool beforo the welding is completed.— The labor of boys is measured only by the strength ofthe men ; for as long as the men can work, the boys must at tend them 1 but m> heavy I. the work that by 6 p. in. tho men themselves are completely exhausted, and obliged to cause, and it ha. been pror.ounced unlit for boy*. A chain maker at Wcdnea field Heath, working in his own shop for a manufactory, aud who had left tbe establishment that he might employ his little girls to luiip him Instead of hir ing boys, which he was obliged to do in the public workshop, wa. found by the assistant commissioner engaged in mak ing a large chain. Two girl., nine and ten years of age, were working a. •■strikers," and 8 little girl of eight, oc casionally relieved by a still younger one of six, was working tlie bellows,— Tlie gross earning, of this man amount ed to two guinea, a week. It may be doubted whether the world could now produce a more revolting instance of parental oppression than the spectacle of these two young girls whole little ham], would have been appropriately employed iv hemming n kerchief or working a sampler—begrimmed with the .moke, stifled with the heat and stunn ed Witt) the din of a smithy, wielding sledge hammers, aud forging iiQa chains from morning till night. A uirigle lit static— of oppression ha. often had a greater effect in routing indignation than the most powerful denunciation of a general wrong. The picture of these little Staffordshire girl, thus tin." sexed by an Imperious taskmaster, and that taskmaster their parent, is well adapted to expose for univarsal repro bation a system under whicli such an enormity could be possible, aud to prove the necessity ot immediate legislative ioterfe.cnce. The district iv which so much of the repulsive work of England and ol tlie world 1. done Is perhaps one of the most forbidding in its aspect of any iv which the lace of nature is tlisfigiirid by the industry otman. Moris it. social aspect much more attractive. The large working population live itliqo.t insolated from the rost of society.— The principal employers reside a dis tance.! loin their works; tor in the black country a lew ministers of religion are almost the only representatives of the. higher elements of civilization , no oue, unless compelled by duty or necessity would reside iua region from which all that makes the country attractive has been so completely effaced. •'Huge heaps of refuse, spoil from the pits or cinders Iron, the iron furnace., cover the whole surface of the district even to the very door, of the houses. Tho smoke which rise, incessantly night aud day from hundreds, of furnaces ob scures the sun, and sti tiles what little vegitqtion the few patches of .oil left unoccupied by buildings or rubbish might afford."

It Is desirable, not only to 'get tho best varieties for seed, but to know how In plant llicui and to raise the largest and best crop. The method 11 -rsuc. and which pays be I tor, far better, than any of the old systems generally practiced, is as fol low. : t 1. In the fall plow deeply and sub soil plow, in all 1- to 20 inches in depth, 2. In early spring plow and sub_)il across tho winter furrows, hjirrow antl roll. 3. Mark out as lor com, 3 feet apart, each way, opening the furrows 8 inches deep. 4. At the intersection drop a whole potatoe, tho largest you have, aud spread upon a handful (about 40 bush-, els per acre) of a compost made of eight parts of wooid ashes, four of bone phos, phate ot lime, and one of saltj'or, if preferred, 3 t unices of artificial fertiliz er per hill. Then cover, roll and spread 1,000 pouns per acre of good artificial tcrtilixcr. 0. As soon as the young plants aj_ pear, run the cultivator close to and Be tween, but not over them, in each di rection. Afterwards, and before the weeds come up, cultivate both way*, with Knoxs horse shoe, so arranged a*, to cut as shallow as possible, and keep the surface entirely flat. Itepeat this at short intervals, three times. Then hand-hoe three tinier still keeping a. flat -uiTacc, Allow no hilling ut any time, nor any weeds to grow, 6.
