IJis ffiltol teik The calm of the public mind has not been disturbed by the meeting of Con gress. The several elections in the early part of November were followed by a peace that passed all expectation. Up to that event, the conflict of parties was waxing more and more fierce as each wee\ passed by, and the gravest apprehensions were felt as to the result of the war of opinions. At 110 period since the failure of the rebellion, has the sky appeared more threatening than during the month of October last. Such was the violence of party men, so fearful were the extreme views they were disposed to press, in the struggle to keep or gain the power, that dispas sionate men who stand ;doof from the struggle of contending factions were at a loss to understand whereunto this thing would grow. But the elections were followed by an ominous and expressive calm. We have read the journals represen ting the extremes of both sides, and they draw one and the same lesson— that moderate counsels must prevail; the war is over; slavery is dead; seces sion is buried ; peace has returned; har vests of grain have been gathered from fields fattened with brothers' blood; the wanderers have come back; let us kill the fatted calf and be glad; the na tion was (almost) dead and is alive a gain, was lost and is found. This is the public sentiment of the American people. This sentiment dictatesyoncil ation and gentleness, with justice and prudence. This spirit requires us to do as we would be done by. It forbids to break the bruised reed. It demands of us to lay 110 burdens 011 our brethren which we are not willing ourselves to bear. It teaches all parties to lay aside prejudice and animosity, while, with the ancient feelings of American union we get together again as soon as possi ble.—JV. Y. Observer. The following account of this remark able piece of mechanism purports to be taken from the Persian manuscript, called "The History of Jerusalem:" The sides of it were of pure gold, the feet of emeralds and rubies intermixed with pearls, each of which were as large as an ostrich's egg. The throne linil cavon olclou OA otwl3 cidp vvnro /lo lineated orchards full of trees, the branches of which were of precious stones, representing fruit, ripe and un ripe ; on the tops of the trees were to be seen figures of birds of plumage, par ticularly the peacock, theetanh, and the karges. All these birds were hollowed within artificially, so as to occasionally utter melodious sounds, such at the ear of mortal never heard. On the first step were delineated vine branches having bunches of grapes, composed of precious stones of various kings, fashioned in such a manner as to represent the vari ous colors of purple, violet, green and red, so as to render the appearance of real fruit. On the second step, on each side of the throne, were two lions of terrible aspect, large as life, and formed of cast gold. The nature of this remarkable throne was such that when Solomon placed his foot 011 the first steps, the birds spread their wings and made a fluttering noise in the air. On his reaching the third step, the whole assemblage of demons, and fairies, and men, repeated the prais es of the Deity. When he arrived at the fourth step, voices were heard address ing him in the followiug manner: "Son of David, be thankful for the blessings which the Almighty has bestowed upon us." The same was repeated on his reaching the fifth step. On his reach, ing the sixth, all of thechildrenof Isra el joined them ; and 011 his arrival at the seventh, all the birds and animals be came in motion, and ceased not until he had placed himself 011 the royal seat, when the birds, lionsand other animals, by secret springs, discharged a shower of the most precious perfumes on Solo mon, after which two of the karges de scended and placed the golden crown upon his head. Before the throne was a column of burnished gold, on the top of which was a golden dove, which held in its beak a volume bound in silver. In this book were written the Psalms of David, and the dove having presented the book to the King, he read aloud a portion of it to the children of Israel. It is further related that on the approach of evil persons to the throne, the lions were wont to set up a terrible roar, and to lash their tails with violence, the birds also, and demons and genii to utter horrid cries; so for fear of them no one dared be guilty of falsehood, but all con fessed theircrimes. Such was thethrone of Solomon, the son of David. A POLICE STORY. A Paris correspondent writes: "The recent death of Nuzillard, the senior cashier at the Comptoir d'Escompte, through whose hands more gold has passed than would buy up an empire, reminds me of the following story: Nuzillard has always enjoyed the re putation of being the most clever, and at the same time most prudent cashier. However, in 1849 he managed to get robbed of a sum of £4,000 in £lO notes. The director of the Comptoir, although he had always had the greatest confi dence in the often tried probity of his clerk, still thinking it strange that ho could have had so large a packet of MODERATE COINSEES. SOLOMON'S THLLONE. notes taken from him without his knowledge, went to the Prefect of Po lice, M. Carlier, and told him all about it. The latter pronounced an opinion favorable to the honesty of poor Nuzil lard. 'Remember,' said the director, 'that a hundred bank notes make quite a thick packet on his breast ——, Noth ing for a clever thief,' interrupted M. Carlier. 'Here is a newspaper, fold it, and button it in your breast pocket. Now I will not promise you it will still be there when you leave the Per fecture!' The director laughed, and declared it was impossible, while he carefully placed the newspaper at the side of his pocket-book. The two gentlemen remained some time in con versation during which the Prefect of Police was receiving people and writ ing orders. When the director rose to go, M. Carlier, after shaking hands with him, said: 'By-the-by, I suppose you have the newspaper all right!' But, lo and behold! to the intense stupefaction of the director, both pock et-book and paper had disappeared, whereupon the Prefect rang the bell, and the amateur thief, who had done the deed on a pencil command from his master, and the astonished owner of the pocket-book then and there de clared his complete belief in his cash ier's innocence." A MODEL MERCHANT. "Business isbusiuess," "andacontract is a contract." These are sound com mercial maxims, but the following in cident illustrates the nature of the busi ness community which obeys the in spired injunction, "Look not every man on his own things, but every man, also , on the things of others:" A merchant of New York, during the late war, made a contract with a mechanic to supply him with a num ber of tin cans. Not longafter this the price of tin rose so much that the con tractor must lose money by complet ing the ware at the price agreed upon. However, he said nothing, but went on delivering the cans. When the first bill for the pay of the cans was receiv ed, the employer called upon him and said,— "I understand you are losing money on this job." "Yes," replied the contractor, "but I can stand it; a contract is a contract, you know." "How much will you lose?" asked the gentleman. "(), no matter," was the reply: I don't complain, and yon ouglit not to.' ; "I insist on knowing." "Well, since*you desire it, I shall lose so much a hundred," naming the amount. "Well, sir," said the noble-hearted man, "you must not lose this—it would not be right. I shall add the amount to your bill, and, as the price of materi al may still rise, I will advance you the money for the* whole contract, which, no doubt, you can use to ad vantage." The difference thus paid, to which the contractor laid no claim, amounted to five hundred dollars. That was something more than business honesty; it was Christian principle carried out in business. The world needs just such examples to convince it of the truth of religion. ADVICE TO A DYSPEPTIC. You have asked me to prescribe for you. You expect medicine, perhaps you hope for whisky, just now the rage for chronic maladies, but I shall give you nothing to swallow; you haveswal lowed too much already. Of all the maladies dyspepsia is the most distress ing ; to get rid of its horrors you would part with your rightarm ; I believe you, but would you part with a portion of your table luxuries ? I fear not; but presuming you are in earnest, I will prescribe for you: 1. Rise early, dress warm and go out; ifstrong, walk; if weak,saunter, Drink cold water three times—of ail cold baths this is best for dyspepsia; after half an hour or more, come in for breakfast. 2. For breakfast eat a piece of good steak half as large as your hand, a slice of coarse bread and a baked apple; eat very slowly; talk very pleasantly with your neighbors; read cheerful com ments of journals; avoid hot biscuits and strong coffee; drink nothing. 3. Digest for an hour, and then to your work; I trust it is in the open air. Work hard till noon, and then rest body and miiul till dinner; sleep little; drink water. 4. For dinner—two or three o'clock — eat a slice of beef or mutton or fish as large as your hand, a potato, two or three spoonsful of other vegetables, a slice of coarse bread ; give more than half an hour to this meal; use no drink. 5. After dinner play anaconda for an hour ; now for the social, for pleasant games—a good time. 6. No supper—a little toast and tea, even for supper, will make your recov ery very slow. Iu a warm room, bathe your skin with cold water hastily, and go to bed in a well ventilated room before nine o'clock. Follow this prescription for three months and your stomach will so far recover that you can indulge for some time in all sorts of irregular and glut tonous eating; or if you have resolved, in the fear of Heaven, to present your bodies, living sacrifices, holy and ac ceptable unto God, and will continue to cat and work like a Christian, your distressing malady will soon be for gotten.— Dio Lewis, M. I>. VOL. 62.—WHOLE No. 5,424. JAPANESE MAPS. There are now in this city some specimens of the work of Japanese which shows that they have attained a proficiency in some branches almost if not quite equal to our own. Oneof these is a large map of the Imperial City of Yeddo, apparently executed by litho graphic process, or something similar, and finished up in colors. No job of this kind, executed in Europe or Amer ca, could excel it in minutences of de tail and careful neatness of execution. The streets, many of which are seven teen miles in length, are all laid down with apparent mathematical exactness, the vast system of canals like those of Venice, but on an immensely extended scale, is also exhibited, and the location of the Imperial Palace and grounds, covering several square miles of territo ry, and the palaces of some 250 princes who reside in the city, are all given.— The city is said to contain 1,500,000 houses, and 5,000,000 people, and to have a commerce more extensive by far than that of any city on earth, though this last seems incredible. Another is a birdseye view of Yokohama, with the foreign quarter to prevent indis criminate commingling of the races, the harbor, the surrounding hils, &c. These maps were purchased by a gentle man now in this city, at a native sta tioner's shop in Yokohama, and are said to be, as in fact they must almost necessarily be, entirely of native work manship. No foreigners have yet been allowed to settle in Yeddo, and the surveys of that city from which the map was made must have been wholly by native enginers.— San Francisco Al- Alta. MXiliO VOTING. The Jackson, Louisiana, Flay pre sents a new phase of the negro voting question. In that part of the South the freednicn were told that unless they voted with the Radicals the supplies of provisions for the owning year would be stopped. In consequence of this in formation, communicated in the lodge rooms of the colored loyal leagues, the negroes assembled immediately after the election to make requsitions for the donations promised. The Flag says: "There was a full exhibition of negro credulity and ignorance on the occa sion. Asa sample of what they ex pect, we give the following bill made out by a freed man for his family for supplies for the next year: Fifty pounds coffee, two barrels flour, fifty pounds sugar, four hundred pounds bacon, one bolt calico, one bolt do mestic, half barrel molases, one dou ble-barrel shot-gun, one pistol, &c." This is the manner in which the ne groes are manipulated in the loyal leagues. They are bribed by promises, cajoled by flattery, their passions stim ulated, their prejudices inflamed, and all this for the purpose of inducing them to vote the Radical ticket, to place in office persons who will dis franchise intelligent white men, and place the balance of the power in the hands of such individuals as those con stituting the gathering at Jackson. What hope is there for the peace and prosperity of a section while political power wielded by persons who can be thus fooled and deceived, and why should white men of the North support a party willing to debauch our whole elective system to hold power in the Union? This question of negro voting lies at the very foundation of the Radi cal party, and they will push on that column regardless of consequences to the real prosperity of the nation. If the North will not allow the experiment to be tried here, why should they force the system upon the South, especially in the face of such facts as those presen ted in the Flay f—Age. FRANK 1.1 N\N WIFE. To promote her husband's interests she attended in his little shop, where she bought rags, sewed pamphlets, fold ed newspapers, and sold the few arti cles in which he dealt, such as ink, papers, lampblack, blacks and other stationery. At the same time, she was an excellent housekeepers, and besides being economical herself, taught her somewhat careless, disorderly husband to be economical also. Sometimes, Franklin was clothed from head to foot in garments which his wife had both woven and made, and for a long time she performed all the work of the house without the assistance of a ser vant. Nevertheless, she knew how to be liberal at proper times. Franklin tells us that for some years after his marri age, his breakfast was bread and milk, which they ate out of a two penny earthen vessel, with a pewter spoon; bnt one morning, on going down to breakfast, he found upon the table a beautiful china bowl, from whiee his bread and milk was steaming, with a silver spoon by its side, which had cost a sum equal in our currency to ten dol lars. When he expressed his astonish ment at this unwonted splendor, Mrs. Franklin only remarked, that she thought her husband deserved a silver spoon and china bowl as much as any of his neighbors. Franklin prospered in his business until he became the most famous edi tor and most flourishing printer in A-j merica, which gave him the pleasure of relieving his wife from the cares of business, and enabled hi in to provide for her a spacious and well furnishtd abode. She adorned a high station as well as she had borne a lowly one, and presided at her husband's liberal table ■ l= -2- as gracefully as when he ate his break fast of bread and uiilk from a two pen ny bow I.— Par toil's Life of Franklin. A PEEP INTO RRKUIAM YOI.VOS NKKACiLII). But let us seek a field of interest. Hereon our right hand are the private grounds of him who ruleth in Zion, Brigham Young. Twenty acres he owns in the heart of the city, where are pleasant walks and floral beauties, sur rounded by a stone wall. Within this enclosure are three princely mansions, where live his thirty wives and num berless progeny. Each of these houses carries a name, that disorder and con fusion may not arise in the camp of Israel. They are the Bee llive House, Lion House and White House on the Ilill. This mighty wall is designed to shut out the world, to exclude inquisitive sight, but we shall venture to describe the scene with in. It is the hour of sunset, gilding the mountains with rapturous light.— We approach the massive iron gates, and unlike Moore's disconsolate Peri, we are permitted to enter the domestic paradise. Strolling leisurely along the grassy walks, our attention is attracted to the singular movements of an elder ly woman, her hair streaked with silver threads, yet with a step firm and elas tic. This evening's air isinviting, and she seems to enjoy the freshness. In her hand is an open book (can it be "Griffith Gaunt; or jealousy ?") which closes with a nervous twitch of the hand as her fading eye rekindles with a look that would seem to say, 'Oh, how I des pise you !' This woman, forty years ago, became Brigham Young's first wife. But who can be the victim of that ma lignant scorning ? What poor mortal is being crushed between her clenched teeth? Can it be I,only a looker-on— a harmless and unoffending Gentile? No; but we have discovered the study of her hate—the bohum upas that has been planted in her side. Yonder is a cluster of trees—they are aspen and maple —and under their thin, yellow tinged tops, is a bright eyed woman of twenty summers, who now leans upon an old man's arm. By what power we know not, but, as if drawn by magic hand, our steps are directed thither ward. The now mistress of the heart and situation flashes winsomelooks and breathes poetic words; he, old man that he is, and slave of sensualism, treads the floor of his own paradise, and smiles approving glances. This man is Brig ham Young, and this woman his very last and much the prettiest wife. No wonder that the "old creature" looked the disagreeable. Perhaps there are others peeping from behind damask curtains who are also.mourning the loss of their place in that old man's affec tions. WIT AM) WISDOM.

TEXAN BEEF.—At the taking of the . last census Texas had, or was estimat ! Ed to have, 3,500,000 head of horned cattle. They were worth little then, just as in the South American pampas the best stock was killed for the tongue . and hide. A plan lately devised has . introduced much of the South Ameri can beef into Europe in a comparatively ! fresh state. The fact that Texas cattle I can be bought for eight to ten dollars a head in gold there, while selling at [ twenty to forty cents a pound here, j has led to a plan by which some 30,000 :i to -10,000 Texas cattle have been coliect -1 ed at Abilene, on the Arkansas river, seventy-five miles from its mouth, one hundred and sixty-five miles west a from Kansas City and three hun . dred and seventy-five miles from northern Texas. Great preparations have been made for receiving and \ fattening animals there, and from . there they will be transported to the ' east. They can bo sold for four cents a v pound, gross, in Chicago, and leave s a good profit over all expenses. They v can be sold for six and seven cents t here, with equal results. The matter has been so well demonstrated that ex tensive preparations have been made . for the ensuing year, and the Texas .* farmers will be rejoiced to get cash for r their stock and we to get beef for our cash. The wild cattle are not quite so succulent eating when killed in the grass as our stall-fed beasts. But when • a Texas cow has been well fed for four or six weeks and kept quiet, nothing e but buffalo hump is tenderer, juicier or )f better flavored. e = a —Wooden legs cost the government is last year $15,203 50.
