The City on the Hill.
BY EBEN E. BEXFORD.
I know the strangest city
A sileut, peaceful city,
A beautiful wbito city
Upon a sunny bill ;
Where daisies fair are growing,
While summer winds are blowing
Upon the earth's green bosom,
Among the streets so still.
The streets are long and narrow,
And the brown thrush and the spar
Crow Their little nests have builded
Among the flower-flucked grass.
You will hear tho song of linnet,
And tho robins carol in it,
Whenever this strange city
Your footsteps chance to pass.
The houses in this city,
This still and peaceful city,
Where never human pity
The dwellers ask nor need,
Are long and low, and over
Each roof the grasses cover,
That no one may discover
Tho haunts where sparrows breed.
There aro no sounds of sorrow,
No longings for to-raorrow,
No pain to bear and borrow
Within its silent streets.
But all is peaceful over
The green grass and the clover,
As days go drifting onward
Abovo its calm retreats.
Tkither, dear one, grown weary
Of treading pathways dreary
Grown, oh I no tired and weary !
Have often turned for rest.
And in that fair white city,
That beautiful, 6trange city,
No thought of pain nor pity
Can touch the dweller's bieast.
Oh, peace, so sweet and tender,
So wrapped about with splendor "
Of rent, which you can render
About each low-laid head ;
Sometime my feet shall enter
Tho gates of your white city,
And I shall claim a dwelling
Among your peaceful dead.
Her Silence Saved Mo.
"I remember," said a young man,
"being in company with several
thoughtless girls. Among them,
however, there was one exception ;
& Gf-rious, quiet, and'beautiful woman,
nv.koo ruikiluua opinions wero well
known, and whose pen hud for a long
time spoken eloquently in tho caw
of truth and virtue, through the col
umns of our village paper. Suddenly
I conceived tho thought of banteiing
Iier on religious subjects, and with
tho foolhardiuess of youth and reck
lessness of impiety, I launched forth
iYiiih some stalo infidel objections that
none but the fool who said in his
heart, 'There is no God,' would ven
ture to reiterate. The flock of yjly
goslings about me laughed ami
tittered, and I, encouraged' by their
mirth, grew bold and repeated my
inuendos, occasionally glancing slyly
toward the principal butt of all my
fun. She did not seem to notice mo
at all; but she did not smile, did
not look away, aud did .not look at
me.
"Still I continued my impious
harangue, thinking that sire muit re
fute something, that she would not
purely hear her own holy faith held
up to ridicule by a beardless boy.
The. suiekerers around mo gradually
began to advance toward hor. Her
faco was so quiet, so even in its
quiet, that seriousness stole over it,
and I stood alone, striving by my
own 6onseless laughter to buoy up
my fast sinking courage.
. "Still-she never spoke or smiled
scarcely moved ; hor immobility grew
awful; I began to stutter to pauso
to foel cold and strange I feel cold
find strange I could not tell how.
My i courage oozod off my heart
grow' faint I was conquered.
"That night, after I went home, in
rejecting over my foolhardy adven
ture, I could have scourged myself.
The sweet, angelic countenance of
my mute accuser came up before mo
in tho vision of the night; I could
not slflep." Nor did I rest until, soino
days after, 1 went to the home of the
lady T.had insulted and asked hor
pardon. ( Then bho spoke to me, how
mild ! how Christianly 1 how sweet
Jy!
"I was subdued, melted down, and
it was not long after that I became, I
trust, au humble Christian, and
looked back to my miserable unbelief
with horror.
"Her fsilcnro saved me. Had she
answered with warmth, with sarcasm,
with sneer, or with rebuke, I should
have grown stronger in ray banter
ing, or more determined in my oppo
sition. 13ut she was silent, and I felt
ns if my voice was striving to make
itself heard against the mighty words
of an Omnipotent God. O how often
would it bo better", if, instead of vain
argument or dispute, tho Christian
Would use tho magic silence."

Into the harvest fields to-day
Singing I went
Th fiold3 where once I met the Way,
All llowers and 6cent:
Aud there rich Autumn, warm and
sweet,
Went laughing through tho windy
wheat
In glad content
Both hands wero full of grass and
grain,
Both feet kept time
To some low murmuring refrain,
Some breathing chime,
That blew through gulden cars and
leaves
The promi-io of the full ripe sheaves
In qnaint old rhyme :
"This is tho happy harvest time :
Then cut the corn afid press the w ine,
Gather the sheaves, and load tho wain:
And bring tho 'harvest-homo' again."
And was glad as glad could be
To meet her there ;
"0, Queen," I said, "give uuto mo
My harvest fail
My splendid lover, strong and true,
Vi'hose witching eyes of tender blue
My heart ensnare.
'The goMen corn, tho ruby wine,
Is not the best :
A richer Haircut-Homo is mine,
Sweeter quest.
Give mo my lover! In bis kiss
I have rounded a world of bliss;
Keep ill the vt."
Cottage Chet -e.
This is a farmer's dish, but should
and would bo eaten and appreciated
by all classes if ihev knew how
wholesome and digestible it ja.- Those
who have plenty of, rii.'k and make
butter have an abundance of sour or
clabbered milk daily, clean and fresh.
Skim the cream off for the churn, and
set a gallon or two of tho milk on
tne stove in a milk pun, and let it
gradually warm until it is lukewarm
all through. Stir it occasionally to
prevent its hardening at tho bottom,
and tho whey begins to show clear
around tho curd, pour it all into a
courso, thin bag, tio cloose, and hang
up to strain. Let it hang two or
three honr3 in a cool, shady place,
and then take from tho bag and put
in a covered dish. When preparir.g
tho rest of a meal, mix with tho curd
rich sweet cream, sugar, and nutmeg.
Some prefer salt and pepper, but the
sugar gives it tho flavor of fruits or
acids. This preparation of milk will
often be found most salutary and
wholesome for dyspeptics and weak,
inflamed stomacliB. The clabber is
also very nutritious and easily
digested.
Knowledge on the Farm.
Many say that knowledge is not
necessary for farmers that anybody
can run a farm. And is this really
so ? Is no knowledge required to
understand the laws which govern
the planting and growing of crops,
the nature of the soil in which they
should be grown? Is no knowledge
required to understand the science of
breeding, to their highest perfection,
the various kinds of live stock, and
the caro and treatment which they
should receivo during tho period of
their growth ! Do not tho laws of
health and disease want to bo under
6tood by tho breeder of 6tock ? Do
not the science of planting, pruning
and training of fruit trees want to be
mastered ? More knowledge is need
ed by tho farmer than auy other pro-
lossionai man. Volmann liural

POETRY
The Two Armies.
As life's unending column pours,
Two marshaled hosts are seen
Two armies on the trampled shores
That death flows black between.
One marches to the drum beat's roll'
The wide-mouthed clarion's bray,
And bears upon a crimson scroll,
"Our glory is to slay."
One moves in silence by the 6tream,
With rad, yet watchful eyes,
Calm as tho patient planets gleam,
That walks the clouded skies.
Along its front no sabres 6hine,
No blood red pennons wave;
Its banner!! bears tho single line,
"Our duty ia to savo."
For these no death bed's lingering
shade ;
At honor's trumpet call.
With knitted brow and lifted blade,
Inglorj's arms they fall.
For these no flashing falchions bright'
No stirring battla-cry ; '
The bloodless stabber calh by night
Faeh answers, "Here am I !"
For those, the sculptor's laureled bnot
The builder's mnrblo piles,
The anthoins pealing o'er their dust
Through long cathedral aisles.
For these the blossom-sprinkled turf
That flood3 the lonely graves
When spring rolls in her sea-green
surf
In flowcrysfoaming waves.
Two paths lea upward from below,
And angels wait above,
Who count tech burning life drop's
flow, ..

SWITZUCUI'D.
Switzerland tho iodel republic
of tho world, is an inland country of
Europe uhut in also by mouutains
of less tl.au twica tho area of New
Hampshire with some 22 cantons,
or district?, comprising a population
of 2,0(50,147. There she sits, en
throned in peace, plenty, and happi
ness. No Credit Mobilier job dis
grace her halls of legislation' Her
rulers ait all Bristows, and there aro
i:o thieves to pifrush. The favorite
legend ol her children is found -in
the iunooiit tale of William Tell.
But i,itf, it may bo said that
Switzerland is a small country and
ours is a largo one, and that makes
all the duiVftjico. ThenVy that, you
would b? understood as asserting,
that republics ore better Euitedto
email tlun to large countries. Well,
there mi:y ba 6omo truth in this, and
on tho vssuniption, you go on to
say surly so if you are an Englishs
man, lira'; our government has becorao
unuieldly. You declare that the
machinery is bungling. There are
too many pails to it. That ease of
motion, tat perfection of action that
comes o;j,7 through simplicity, is lost.

tljas fat?4? Our progress in this
respect l& ) been very rupid. , This is
not shown by any illustration at the
Centennial. But since, this great ex
hibition has opened, tho nation has
witnessed the going out of oilico of a
prominent, honest, and efficient
ofiicer, and alas, they say it was his
very honesty and efficiency that com
pelled him to go. Thus tho thieves
are invited to "break through and
steal." And yet tho capricious, un
reasoning masses, liko Tennyson's
brook, bid fair to "go on forever,"
under the lead and rulo of villainous
partizans. Verily, if wo rush on at
this rate much longer, some historian
will have a nice little job before tho
next century closes, of writing the
'Decline rnd Fall of the American
Bepublic." One of two things are
certain, we must either have a spoedy
change of conscience m oilico or a
not far distant chaugo of govern
ment Speaking of tho government of
Switzerland, they have a federal as
sembly composed of two branches,
like our congress. A general election
for representatives takes place every
three years. Then this assembly
makes choice of a federal council of
seven members. The President and
Vice-President of the federal council,
who serve in turns for terms of one
year, are tho first magistrates of the
republic.
The German Inngu.ige is spoken by
a majority of the inhabitants in six
teen cantons, the French in four, and
the Italian in two. Parents in that
country are compelled to send their
children to school from tho ago of
5 to 8. The constitution of the
republic, howover, forbids the mainte
nance of a standing army within tho
limits of tho confederation.
One Cause of the "Jlanl Times."
During the past ten years, tho
labor of this country has been con
centrated in our cities and villages,
building up these and extending our
public works. Now there has been a
panic in this rush of building ; the
real grounds for extending our
capacities for doing business can be
seen ; and also, under recent devels
opments, tho manner in which it has
been accomplished.
Men, with and without capital,
have extended their business, and
built themselves palatial residences,
apparently forgetful 'of the , word
failure ; manufacturers havo re
modelled, enlarged their works, nnd
multiplied' their machinery, until tlie

of necessity, cotnen retrenchment ard
suspotiision of expenses and work,
and this is tho dull times about which
so much is said.
This rush of building and extension
was a. harvest "time to labor. From
18(13 to 1S73 wus a golden harvest,
and fortunate are thoy who so con
sidered it ainl mado good use of it.
The natural result of this reaction
upon tho laboring' classes in, they are
not wanted at any prico in certain
directions, and in such numbers.
Tho decline would have como
sooner, had not some extraordinary
events interposed to postpone the
d;y. In the spring of -1870; tWe

bunday was bo (ailed because it
was dedicated to the sun, or to its
worship.
Monday was moon day, or made
sacred to the moon.
Tuesday, from the liars of our ans

Wednesday, frcra Woden, tho god

Saturday, from Saturn's day.
Coming now to names ' of tho
months in common use, wo find that
January comes from Janus, an old
Italian deity, the god of the sun and
tho year, to whom tho mouth of
January was sacred. Ha was repre
sented with two faces, looking in op
posite directions. His temple at
ltomo was never closed except in lime
of universal pcaco.
February eome3 from the Latin
Februarins, tho mouth of expiation
aud purification, nnd was held by
tho Romans as a festival to purify.
March, from Mars, the god of war.
April, from tho Latin aperire, to
opeu, as the month in which tho earth
opens to receive tho seed.
May, from the Latin Mains; so
named in honor of tho goddess Maia
daughter of Atlas and mother of
Mercmy.
June, from Juno, because it was
sacred to that goddess.'
July was 60 called from Julius, the
surname of Caius Ckosar, who was
born in that month.
August, from August Cwsar, on ac
count of his victories, and his having
entered on hi3 first consulato in that
mouth.
The other four, September, Octo

from the Latin numerals, but are
misnomers as now used, because sep
tern means seven; octem, eight;
novem, nine; docem, ten.
