MA For tho benefit of thoao who lmvo not heard it, or forgotten it, wo will givo tho story of a backwoods editor : Years ago, when a certain Western Stato (which wo nlmll not name) wan a territory, and with few inhabitant a young lawyer from ono of tho old StateB emigrated thither, and settled in tho town of K Ho succeed ed admirably in his profession, and roso rapidly in popular favor. Ho had been thero nearly two years, whon ho induced a printer to print a weekly paper, of which ho was editor and proprietor. Sipiiro S. was much pleased for awhilo with editing a paper. He was a roan of very low stature, but ho used tho editorial "we" as fru.pneutly as if thero wero a dozen of him, and each as big as Daniel Lambert. Ntrango to say, thero woro at that time men in ollico who woro not a particle more honest than they nhould bo; a thing which probably never happened before and never will again. H.piiro S. fult all tho patriotism of a rou of 7G, and poured out grape and canister against public abuses. This soon stirred a hornet's nest about his ears ; but as thoro was no other paper in tho lorritory, thero was no reply, and he enjoyed his warlike propensi ties in security. At length ho published an nrticlo moro severo and cutting, against malfesanco in office, than any that had preceded it. In fact, though pointed at no ono individual iu par ticular, it was a "scorcher." Sonio threo or four days afterwards ho was sitting alono in his editorial office, which was abont a quarter of a milo from tho printing establish ment ; bin pen was busy with a para graph, when his door opened without much ceremony, and in stalked a man about r,ix feet in bia ntooLiugu. Ho asked, "Are yon S , the proprietor of this paper ?" Thinking ho hud found a new patron, tho liltlo man, with ono of his blandest smiles, answered in the affirmative. Tho stranger delib erately drew tho hu-t number of tho paper from his pocket, and pointing to the article against rogues iu office, told tho affrighted editor that it was intended for "him." It was in vain that S. protested ho had never heard of him iHifore. Tho wrath of the vihitor rose to fever heat, and from being bo luieg restrained, boiled over with donble fury. Ho gavo tho editor his choice, either to publish an hum ble, very humblo recantation, or tt!.x 'i Jl'i'J'J"1' on tin' Hjtot. Kilher alternative was wormwood ; but what could ho do ? The enraged ouice holder was twice his size, and at ono blow would qualify him for an obitu ary notice. Ho agreed to retract; and as tho visitor insisted upon writ ing tho retraction himself, ho bat down to his task. Hquiro sS. made an excuse to walk to tho printing office, with a promiso that ho would 1h) back iu season to sign it as soon as it was finished. S. had hardly gono fifty rod.i, v. hen ho encountered a man who inquired whero Sqniro S.'s ollico was, and if ho was at homo. Suspecting that he, too, was on tho samo errand as the other visitor, ho pointed to tho oflico, and told him ho would find the editor within, writing a most abnsivo article against office-holders. This was enoiioh. Tho eyes of tho new comer flashing fire, ho rushed into the office, and assailed tho stranger with tho epithets, "liar, scoundrel, coward ;" and told him ho would teach him how to write. Tho gentleman, supposing itwassomo bully sent there by the editor, sprang to bis feel and a fight ensued. Tho table was upset and smashed into fire wood, tho cont. nls of a larso jug of ink stood in puddles on tho floor, tho chairs had their legs and backs broken beyond tho skill of surgery to euro them. This seem ed only to inspiro tho combatants with still greater fury. I'.low follow, ed blow with tho rapidity of light ning. First ono was kicking on the floor, then the other, each taking it in turn prtty equally. The ink on ll.o ll,,,,. found its wnv lo their faces, till both of them cut 'the most ludic rous figure imaginable. Tho noise) and uproar wero tremendous. 1 1"' nei'dibors ran to the .l"r, and ( chinned with astonishment, that two ni '-rocs were lighting i" S'iiiro S. w tillii c. N"ne dared p.' arate them.

"Oh I you go 'long ; I'll bo thero in a minute," and Dill went on with his reading. Hal edged townrdn tho chamber door, stopped to pinch tho cat's tail, kicked up tho rug, knocked over a chair, ami then snorted out : "Now, Dill, yon jes' got to como on; I ain't going up thero alono." "Yes, Willio dear," interposed tho mother, "go together liko good boys." "And, 'William," suggested tho father, with sonio emphasis, "I don't want to hear any giggling, nor snick ering, nor snarling. I want you both to go to bed quietly to night; do you understand 7" "Yes, sir," responded William, dutifully, as ho aroso and laid aside his book. Hal, porcoiving that his brother was really coming, felt good-natured, and resolvod to havo sonio fun. Accordingly, ho darted ahead, and slamming tho chamber door after him, ran tn-ho-ing np stairs. "Oh! I'll pay you for that, young man !" exclaimed Will, as ho opened tho door and rnshed aftor him. At tho head of tho stairs tho lnck Inpfi Hal was overtaken, and a fierco hn((l ensued, which was onlv ended by tho stern voice of tho father from tho foot of the stairs : "William! Harry! I want you boys to go to bed and stop that noise; do yon hear 1" "Yes, sir," answered both boys, in subdued tones. A few moments of silence followed, and then, as tho bed creaked, voices wero heard liko this : "Now qui-it!" "Now stoop!" "D. havo, or I'll tell pa !" "Te-ho-ho:" "Ha! ha! ha!" "Doys," called the father impatient ly, "what tho dickens nro you doing there t" "Nothin'," said Hal. "Goin' to bed," said Will, surprised that such ft question should bo asked. "Well, now, I tell yon it won't bo healthy for you if I hear any moro of that uoiso." Tho father closes tho door, and there is another short spaco of hilence, and then Hal remarks : "Will, I saw yen kUsin' a gal to day, and I am going to tell all tho boys." "Oh, ho ! smart, ain't yo 1 I saw you hugging Nutlio Drown yesters day." "No you didn't." "Yes, I did." "Didn't, either." "Did, too." "Tako that, smarty." "And that, you young ape." "Oh, oh, oh ! Ma, ma, Will's a pinchin' mo !" Tho mother opens tho door and sighs as sho sadly exclaims : "Willio, what arc you doing V "Nothin'," answered Will ; "'am t touched him to-night." "Oh, nin, he did, too. He "Well, no, I want you both to ho still and go to sleep; won't you, boys !" pleads tho mother. "Ycs'in," they both answer, turning over resolutely, determined to be good. The mother retires, and then ill happens to think : "Oh? say, Hal, didyoulosoth.it slate pencil' I lent you to-day !" "Oh, 1 dunno." "You needn't pretend to bo po awful sleepy," punching him in the ribs ; "if you'vo lost that slate pencil, young man, you'll catch it." "Ouit! Lemmo 'lone! I dunno nothin' bout your t-lato pencil. ' "You don't, heyt Well, you jes better find out something about it pr.tty quick, too." ",Ies' lemmo be, now." "Yes. 1 11 let von bo!

Jesus went through tho corn, nnd, taking things fen and known of all men for tho subject of His teachings on various occsaons, looked upon the harvest with a holy eye, discerning spiritual truths beneath outward forms, and reproducing them in para bles which sp.'ko to every heart. Tho parables of tho sower, of tho wheat, and of tho rich man whoso ground brought forth plentifully, as also His touching allusions at Sychar to tho spiritual field "white already nnto harvest," and His yearning pity for the multitude when Ho marked how tho harvest was great and tho labor ers were few reveal tho thoughts of Jesus and tho heart of Jesua while walking on tlio Sabbath through tho golden fields of corn. Tho objects of His Father's bounty suggested mat ter for some of His lovliest teachings, and tho corn bucamo His text book for parables that will not ceaso to edify His people as long as tho world endureo. Not stich v-cro tho thoughts of tho Pharisees who accompanied him. They porcoivnd neither Ood's bounty in tho harve .t, nor Christ's spiritual teaching in 'ho corn parables; but they were quick to pereoivo tho hungry fishermen who fullowod Him, rubbing tho ears c', coin in their baud for food ; and, elighted to havo an op portunity ef attacking tho Master through the disciples, they immedi ately ask : "Why do they that which it is not lawful to do upon tho Sab bath day !" It is easier to bo sancti monious tlan to bo holy. Tho letter of tho law may bo kept whero tho spirit of it is broken ; tho l'hariseo may walk ihrongh the corn and find nothing I nt matter for cavil, while Jesus liiiJs rich (spiritual food where with to nourish His people in every The I'.ililn in lodhi. At the late anniversary of tho Brit ish and Foreign Diblo Society, tho Karl of Shaftesbury read tho fullow ing letter from Sir I'.artlo Frero, who had just returned in tho company of tho l'riiro of Wales, from his tour in her majesty's Indian possessions : At .liferent places, during his roy al liighiess's tour, thoprincn received from various bodies copies of trans lations jf the Holy Scriptures into, I believe, no less than eleven languages, nnil i T think, no less than nine cases tlo translations comprised tho whole Bible, anil sonio oi uio most, iomnvtinf, nortions of both Testa ments wero presented, which had been translated into nine other languages in which no eompleto translation of tho wholo Diblo had yet bcu finished. This may nfl'ord somo Idea of tho number of readers in Iuilia to whom tho Holy Scriptures are now accessible in their own In dian dialect; and when I mention that, i f all these versions four Olllv were, I be'.icve, complete when I first wont to Jn.tia, lorty-iwo years ago, wo may havo f oino idea of tho great present activity of tho society's agents, in ft great number of missions scattered through such a number of nations speaking so many dnlereut diaUcts. Then, as to tho elToct produced, nnnrf. from direct, and entire conver sions from other religions to Chris ... i , , i . dainty, 1 may mention tnc laci, which struck me greatly, that I was a-sured from n. any quarters that many thou sands of Hindoos, who do not make itnv profession of Christianity, babit iia'lly use books of the Old and New Ti slum, nt-i ns their models in tu aver and their standards of morality. I . . . . . 1 1 i . need not 'rouiile you wun conum-ius on the fact, but I urn sure that all friends of tho Diblo society will re joice lo think that the devotional portions of the.

Farm and Household Top-Pri'ssliifr Orchards. Tho London U'ttrdm says: "Tops dressing can bo npplied to orchard trees on grass with tho perfect confi dence that improved crops will follow, although the grass itself may bo tho first to show tho top-dressing. There is before us an instance of an orchard of applo troen planted on thin grav elly soil ; tho trees wero coverod with moss and stunted, although not by any means old (about 25 yearn.) Tho grass of this orchard had been mown year after year for the sako of tidiness, thus exhausting tho soil moro than tho trees did. A rather rough system of top-dressing was inaugurated at n saerillco of appear ances j all sorts of refuso material wero wheeled or carried into tho orchard and spread over tho surface, such as Biftod coal ashes, old decayed tan, the old soil and rubbish from tho potting bench, sweepings and scrapings of roads, etc,, until a con siderable thickness of material had accumulated. Tho first result was a troublesome growth of grass, which was kept down with tho scytho, but not cleared away on tho contrary, allowed to rot on tho surface. Dy and by tho trees began to omit quan tities of young roots from tho lower parts of their boles into tho top dressing, and tho soeond result was, that the next crop of apples was considerably larger and of a much improved quality; the branches were soverely thinned to admit light and air, well dusted with quick limo to remove moss and lichens, and they wero amply repaid annually by this simplo attention." lloine-mn.le C'iciiiii Candy. To a cofTee-cupful of whito sugar add two tablespoonfuls of water to dissolve it and boil, without, stirring, in a bright tin pan until it will crisp in water liko molasses candy. Just before it is done put in ft teaspoonful of extract of Tannin, ... k...ci o peppermint ecicnce, and a quarter of a teaspoonful of cream of tartar. When done, pour out into a buttered pan, and when cool enough to handle, work it as you would molasses candy until it is perfectly white, then stretch and lay on a marble slab or molding board ; with n chopping knife cut into mouthful and lay it on buttered paper on a plate. When children want candy, by all means let them have that ma do at home, and they will not eat plaster of paris, chalk, starch and poisonous com pounds, which derange their stomach and ruin their teeth. To Clean Looking ;insscs. Tako a newspaper, fold it small, dip it in a basin of cold water. When thoroughly wet squeezo it out as you would a sponge ; then rub it over tho surface of tho glass, taking care that it is not so wet as to run down in streams; in fact the paper must only bo completely moistened, or dampened all through. Let it rest a few minutes, then go over tho glass with a fresh newspaper, till it looks clear and bright. Tho insides of windows may be cleaned in tho same way, also spectacle glasses-), lump glasses, tte. Whito paper that has not been printed on is better; but in tho absence of that a very old news paper, on which tho ink has become thoroughly dried should be used. Clienp i.-tcrns.

Of courso a manhole through which tho cistern can be entered for cleaning is also neces sary. - Sulphate of ir five prain.4; pep permint wat'-r, eleven diaehm"; sp.iit of nutmeg, one' drachm; e.ne table spoonful taken t'.wce a d .y is a cu re fer intemperance.

A soi;xn philosopher oneo paid, "Ho that thinks any innocent pastimn foolish has either to grow wiser or is pant tho ability to do so ;" and wo have always counted it an impudent fi. tion that playfulness is inconsistent with greatness. Many men and women havo died of dignity. Evrnv man likes honesty in ono way or another. This man likes to oco it in another, enjoying the sight of it as that of ft costly luxury which ho cannot afford to indulge iu ; whilo that man, wiser and truer, having lost fill else, hugs it as his priceless fortnnp . nnd .gloats over it as his secret :A suP.ic ing treasure.

Tim business of ostrich raising for the sako of tho feathers has reached considerable, proportions in South Africa.

Sho is a woman of about 10, rather pretty, and tho next favorito to Amelia Fobioin, his cigh teenth wife. No. PS is credited with haing a high grade temper, and it is raid that sho treats Drigham ns if sho wero his mother in law instead of his w ife. Ax ingenious modo of designing on glass, being a modification of tho process by which copperplate engravi ings on paper aro transferred to porcelain, has been invented in Franco. As fine-lined copperplate) en"ravings would not adhere to glass, others having considerable depths aro used ; also, lo impart to tho enamels that thickness which tho gl.i:,s requires, hlearates and oleatcn aro ndded to tho nsual elements, which servo to pnpport or fuso tho colored and coloring oxiTes; and for a vehicle, a eolation of resin in ether or benzine is added to the mixture. Impressions', taken ncclnnirally on paper with this ink from engraved rollers, aro transferred to the glae, which is then treated as in similar procee ses with porcelain, and is finally placed in tho furnace. Effects of great artisti.' beauty ahd merit aro found capable ef be ing produced by this means at a trfliig cost, and it is probable that tho nppli"ai"n of tho act will bo greatly extended. 1'oi.hm: is not the lui'.frcM rf events, becur-c in herself sho i i .-l-j. -.;;!,.',!.
