BY BDWIS RORSITER JOHXSOS.
If that indeed were fact which seem-
A pleasant universal fiction.
That 's daily born of youthful dreams.
Nor dies of daily contradiction —
That every mortal has a mate.
And counterparts go blindly grcping.
To find perchance, through fogs or fate,
The end of all their weary hoping—
I'd say : V\ hatever I have done
To manhood's earnest work befitting,
Be consecrate to her alone
Who waits for me, though all unwitting:
Who puts the signs of pain away.
Lest grief too soon her cheek should fur
Who beats temptation back to-day,
1 hat I may see some glad to morrow-;
W ho dare not pluck a flower that grows
Beyond the paih God spreads before her.
Nor ever think of passing those
That bloom beside it to adore her ;
Who strives to add a ! cubit yet
By failb unto her moral suture—
Dear soul ! —lest I should feel regret
At finding less than mine her nature ;
W hose bands train many a trailing vine
That mine had rudely left to perish.
And all its tendrils deftly twine
In folds that failing years shall cherish;
W hose steps will mark life's tune a!-vav.
Though mine have stumbled, failed, and
W hose spirit walks with mine to day,
However far our feet are sntidered. —

O, what a going back there hez bin on

Feelin an oneasine-s in my mind ez to the

Atuet.'linent, 1 determined to a !opt. a mo-t
hazardous ex peri n cut. 1 hed no fears uv
Kcntuck, none. K muck frill git ready to
adopt an idea ninety years after dale, but I
felt that I wanted to be satisfied ez to the
souti lnis uv the Ohio and Injeany Ditnocri
sy on this question.
To this end I de: tniincd to ic-> rt to
st.-a'i gy. I wanted to know- precisely the
feelin* entertained iri these States rcgardin
the Aliikeo. 1 wanted to see with my own
eyes the skornful foot wich was formerly
slung at Afrie's nose; I wanted to hear
again from Demikratic lips that ch -erin ex
pro—ion, "I)—n the nigger, anyhow!" To
accomplish thi*. I determined to personate
a nigger, and in that guise to go boldly into
Injeany, announce myself cz an Afriken
nigger determined to assert bis rites, and
note the result. I (xpectid. uv course, to
be hooted and reviled. I expected to be
stoned and shot at, bat I wood thereby kill
two bird* with one stone, \iz. I no 1 dis
gust the Injcanian* with nigger ekaiity, ez
they wood see wat it wuz leadin. and I could
exhibit my sears to Kentucky cz proof uv
the *tedfu*rii* uv their Northern Trends.
IVat I determine upon I do. In iuy
younger day*, the feat involvin the pos-es
shen uv a horse, which resultid in tny bein
tried for grand larceny, and convicted by
twelve prejoodist ioorymcn, and my incar
cera*hen from which I wuz only roleered
bee -z my vote wuz neodid to carry Pennsyl
vany for Bookannon, this masterpiece wuz
coneeeved and execootid in less than four
hours. Unforchnitcly, the courts wuz near
!y ez cxpedi*bus, for four days thereafter I
found myself in a Basted.
I entered Injeanny ez a white man; I rej
c.-tered tuy name at a hotel ez a white man,
but I left it a nigger, wich transformation
was rccompHshed by means uv burnt cork,
in ray room; wich transformation wuz uv
double us", ez it enabled me to leave my
hotel without Hkidatin my account, wich
otherwise wood hev bin impossible. The
county in wich I landed wuz a close one,
the two parties bein nearly tied, neither
hevin fifty votes to spare, and there bein
over a hundred niggers in the county, the
Afrikin will, cf he votes this Fall, hold the
balance uv power.
With my face and hands blackt to the col
or uv nite, and assumin the character uv a
preacher in the 31. E. Afrikin church, wieh
character I cool assoom, cz the burnt cork
hid the b;- iuir d color uv my nose, I sallied
forth boldiy. Procuorin the kteashen uv
the leadin Di mi krat uv the county, with
wuz al-o the candidate for sheriff, I sought
him out and demanded a subeeripshen for a
Afrikin church, wich I asserted I was desi
rous uv crcetxn in the east part of the coun
ty, and uv wieh I wuz to be pastor in charge,
holdin myself at the same time in sich a po
sisheu that a kick cood do but little if any
"I wuz not kiekt!"
On the contiary, quite the reverse ! The
gush in candidate kindly, blandly and win
ningly be/aged me to be seated: he askt me,
with tears uv intrest gush in from his eyes,
ez to the prosper uv our Zion; ez to how
many we numbered, male and female, adult
and youthful, and whether or not we cood
ent indulge a reasonable hope lbat many
more uv our color mightn't be induct to
leave the South and settle in the couuty.

we came upon sutliin like fificn gentlemen

shot abed, keepin in advance till he bed

"'Why this maneouver?" askt I, that he

"My deer s'r!" replied he, "Vou will ex

But I did come to greef. One uv these

there met my fate. He led me to a cham

on my hands 1 undertook to wash em, wich
1 made a pint uv d"in reg'.crly twice a week.
The fitst splash in the water showed me my
blunder. Off came the color and I stood
before him a wbi'e man in disguise. He

HO It ACE GREELEY IN THE RIOT.
Only a hundred muskets had been brought
into the building during the night: but;
these, by a happy run,, had been mag
nified in the estimation of the mob into at
least five hundred. They kept the ra-cals
al bay for the night, but w- rc totally in.-uf
ficieut for the regular defence of th ■ build- :
ing. \\ ith even a hundred brave men be j
hind tbeui the.v could no more have with- i
stood that infuriated crew of five thousand, j
than a feather can withstand a whirlwind.:
This was fully appreciated by the defenders, ;
and it was determined that if the building j
should stand over night, to load it up to |
the muzzle in the morning. Accordingly, I
by the following nooti it was a perfect arse- :
nal. The first floor was barricaded with ■
bales of printing paper, and provided with ■
a steam ho*e-. that would have badly
"scotched" any intruder; and the second
story bad at one of the windows a small
cannon, loaded with crape and canistir, and
at the others, piles of hand grenades, ready
to be hurled upm tie rioters. The third
(ory wa.* cqn illy well armed, and in the
larger editorial room were a dozen forty
pound shells, with fuses shortened so they
would explode on striking the pavement.
Thc*->, with a brace or more of muskets at
every window, and a hundred and fifty de
termin- d men, all under command of an ex
perienced army officer, completed the arma
ment of the building.
j This arsenal Mr. Greeley entered about
noon on the second day of tie riot, and ma
king his way to the editorial room-, he look
ed curiously about at the warlike prepara
tion-. "What are these?" he ioqu'red. in
speding the .-hells, which were range 1 in
an irregular semi-circle near one of the front
"Balls of fire and brimstone for tho<e rc-d
i ragamuffin* down there on the sidewalk."
"But I wanted no arms brought into the
"Yes, we know; but Col. Adams now has
command of*the Tribune, and we propose to
oe this dance out, if it lasts till doomsday."
Without further remark 31 r. Grecly went
to his work, and ail the day was knee deep
in editorials and exchanges.
Meanwhile a noisy mob was in posstssim
of Printing-llousc Square, and whoever
entered or left the building was greeted with
yells and curses, and threats of even rough
er treatment. Still, a throng of friends
kept pouring in and out all the day, and
these visitors so impeded 3lr. Greeley's
work that it was eight o'clock at night be
fore he ha i finished his last leader. As B
grew toward* dark one friend after another
went to him, urging hint to leave for home,
and repre:eming tte gieat danger of re-
maintng aflor sunset. To all his answer
was, "I am not quite through ; I will go in
a few minutes.'*
At last General Bustccd t-ame in from the
street, reporting that the crowd, now great
ly augmented, were clamoring wildly for
"ould Gray ley "It is absolute madness,"
he added, "for you to stay longer;" but the
answer still was. "I am not quite through;
I will go in a few minutes."
Light o clock at last came, and then Col.
j Adams and another gentleman sent out for
| a close carriage, to be brought to the side
door, and then going to Mr. Greeley, acoos
i ted him somewhat as follows:
"Mr. Greeley, a carriage will be here in
stantly. \\ e want you to leave the office."
i. hi not quite ready; 1 wiil go in a few
j moments, was again Ihe quiet answer.
e insist on your going new. A hun-
I dred and fifty of us are risking our lives in
; defending your building, and you have no
| right to add to our danger."
At this the philosopher slowly rose, and
with hi- peculiar smile, said, "But why or
der a carriage? I could have gone just as
well in a street eir."
"I od couldn t have got to a car." Look
down there, and see the kind of crowd that
surrounds the building.''
He looked down and saw what might have
made a man of iron nerve turn a little pal
lid. The infernal regions had been uuroof
-1 e-j, and the devils were there, shouting and
hooting, and howling, and groaning on the
pavement. Such another crew got togctb
er on this or any other planet: and a* he
looked they shouted, "Come out. ye ould
haythen; come out, and we'll taichye a nay
gar s as good as a Irishman."
"Well, they ar< a hard looking set," he
said, turning quietly around and drawing
on his coat, preparatory to leaving; "where
could these fellows have come from* '
He was smuggled into the carriage, the
door was closed, nod in half an hour he wa.
miles away, in safety.
As all know, the riot lasted two days lon
ger. Daring every hour of those two days
the Tribune office and its editor were in al
most hourly danger; but Mr. Greely came
aod went as usual, ami as usual attended to
the duties of his position, as if only quiet
were reigning over the blood-deluged city;
and all thi- while some of the great dailies
were porting him a* a poltroon; and even a
venerable archbishop had the bad taste to
publicly brand hint as morally and physical
ly a coward !
Whatevei may be the fact- touching Mi.
Greeley's moral or physical courage, he
showed upon this occasion an intellectual
courage that stood him in good stead, and !
constituted him in every deed a hero.—El) j

ANECDOTE OF DISRAELI'S XV I EE.
A story i- told of Lady Beacomfield's de
votion to her lord and bis ambition, which,
if ttue, i- a touching commentary on the
unselfish DCs* of womanly affection. lln one
ooi'-ision, wh"t> Disraeli w* tjltaiwclier of
tin Exchequer, hi.* wife accompanied him
to the I'arliauient House. It was "Budget"
sight -tb tiM-t momentous of all sessions
to the Chancellor of tb: Exchequer, for he
had to unfold his financial plans fox the en
suing . ear to a critical and not too <-:L.-iiy
-ati.-ii 1 House. Di-ratli. a- he took his
place m the carriage, wa- wholly wrapt up
in his subject and hi* figures; it wa- a crisis
in hi* career; if lie failed this night, he
might well take Wolsey's advice to Crom
well, "Fiing away ambition !" His wife
entered the carriage a!*o, softly, so as not
to disturb the thinker. In getting in, how
ever, hirfing r was caught by the doer,
which, -huttine upon it, jammed it terribly
and held it so hist that s"he could not with
draw it. She uttered no cry, made no move
meat; her paio and agony must have been
intense. There wa* the finger crushed be
tween the panels ; to iq>eak or to endeavor
to withdraw it would disturb her lord—
would drive the figures and argument* from
his h ad. No there stayed the finger, every
moment more painful, until they reached
the House ; nor did Disraeli hear a word of
it till long alter the famous debate of that
night had become history. All tbat evening
the faithful wife sat in the gallery, that her
husband's quick glancing eye might not
mi— her from it; she bore the pain like a
martyr and like a woman who loves.
No wonder that by her husband's act she
ha* become Viscountess Beaconsfield : still
le.-* wood r that, a* Lady Beaconsfield, she
is honored in England's proudest castles,
and has taker, her place in the hereditary
* iciety as naturally and easily as if she too
had been "to the manner born." — From

overwork. —There was William Pitt,
dead at forty nine, carrying the British Em
pire on his shoulders for a quarter of a cen
tury, and attempting to carry a pint of port
wine daily and a pinch of opium in his
stomach, and foundering in mid-ocean from
this over-cargo. What a wreck was that
when Brinsley Sheridan went to pieces on
the breakers of intemperance and overwork!
There, too, wa* Mtrabeau, that prodigy of
strength and health, of versatility and splen
did talent, killed by the overwhelming
labors and excitements of the tribu ie and
the orgie* of Cyprian bell*. Sergeant S.
Prentiss attempted the double ta-k; and if
ever a man might with impunity, he could,
with leonine health and marvelous mental
gift*. Said a distinguished Mississippi law
yer to mc. "'Prentiss would sit up all night
gambling and drinking, and then go into
court next day and make a better pica in
al! respects than I could, or anybody else at
the bar of our State, even though we stud
ied our CMC half the night and sleep the
rest." He tried it, and in the trying burned
to tbe socket in :oity-one years the lamp of
life that had been trimmed to last fourscore.
A draft upon the constitution in behalf of
appetite is ju*t as much a draft as in behalf

balances the clouds, and hung the earth

IH TO BE HANDSOME.
st people like to be handsome. No
body denies the greater power any person
may have who ha* a good face, and who
attracts you by good looks, even before a
word has been spoken. And we see all
sort* of devices in men and women to im
prove their looks —paints and washes, and
all kinds of cosiuatics, including a plentiful
annointiug with dirty hair oil.
Now not every one can have good fea
ture*. They are as God made them:
but almost any one can look well espec
ially with good health. It is hard to give
rules in a very short space, but in brief these
Keep clean—wa.-h freely and univer
sally with oold water. Ail the skin wants
is leave to act freely and it will take eate
of itself. Its thousand* of air holes luu.-t
oot be plugged up.
Eat regularly and .-imply. The stom
ach cau no more work all the lime, night
anA -by, tltun s llnr-,-; it. must have regu
lar work and regular rest.
Good teeth are a help to good looks.
Brush them with a soft brt:*h, especially
at night. Go to bed with teeth clean.
Of course to have white teeth, it is need
ful to let tobacco alone. Every woman
knows that. And any powder or wash for
the teeth, should be very simple. Acids
may whiten the teeth, but they take off
enamel or injure it
Sleep m a cool room, in pure air. No
one c-an have a clean skin who breathes
bad air. But more than all, in order to
look well—wake up the mind and soul.
When the mind is awake, the dull, sleepy
look pa.-ses away from the eyes. I do not
know that the brain expands, but it seems
to. Think, read —not trashy novels, but
books that have something in them. Talk
with pteople that kn >w something; bear
lectures and learn by them.
This is one good of preaching. A man
thinks and works an] tells us the rc-ult
And if wc listen, aud hear, and understand,

We have seen a plain face really glori

Men say tbey can't afford books, and
sometimes they don't even pay for their
newspaper. In that i-a-c it does them
little good, they must feel so mean while
they are reading it.
But men can afford what they really
choose. If all the money *i>ent in self
induigenoe, in huriful indulgence, was spent
in books, self improvement; we should see
a change. Men would grow handsome and
women too. The soul would shine out
through the eyes. We were not meant to
be mere animals.

lectures and hear them, and sermons and

The maxim that "every man is the archi
teet of his own fortune, has been striking
ly verified and illustrated in the history of
American >ut<*-mcn. The following col
lection of facts respecting some of our great
men may prove interesting:
Very few of the fathers of our republic
were the inheritors of distinction. Wash
ington was almost the only gentleman by
right of birth in al! that astoui.-hing compa
ny of thinkers and actors. Two or three
Virginians, John Jay, of New I ork. and
half a dozen meaner men from other provin
ce*. were exception*. But Franklin was a
printer's boy: Sherman, a shoemaker; Knox
was a book-binder; Green, a blacksmith;
John Adams and Marshall, the sons of poor
farmers: and Hamilton, the most subtile,
fiery, and electrical, but at the same time
the most composed aud orderly genius of
all. exceptine the unapproachable Chief,
was of as humble parentage as the rest, and
himself at the beginning, a clerk or shop
keeper. And if we come down to a late pe
riod, Daniel Webster was the son of a coun
try farmer, and was. rescued from the occu
pation of a drover only by the shrewd ob
servation of Christopher Gore, whom he
called upon for advice in respect to a difti
culty arising from the sale of a pair of steers;
John C. Calhoun was the son of a tan
ner and currier; the father of Henry Clay
belonged to the poorer class of Baptist min
isters: Martiu Van Buren. during the fitful
leisure of the day gathered pioe knots to
light hi* evening studies; Thomas Corwin
was a wagoner: Silas Wright, by heritage,
a machinist. In later times wc have had
Lincoln of the flat-boat; Johnson, the tailor:
Grant, the tanner; Wilson, the shoemaker's
apprentice: and many others among our
statesmen, who receive the applause and
reverence of mankind, passed their earlfhr
years, of what, in other countries, would be
almost impassable distance from the emi
nences which they now enjoy.
All this is encouraging for our aspiring
voune men who would dare and do, rather
than lean on the reputation of their ances
In the old monarchies the question is,
what is your pedigree; or who were your
progenitors? Here, in our republic, the
question is, What hare you done? what are
you doing? at what do you aim? To do, to
grow, to improve, and become all that God
intended us to, i our privilege, our right
and our duty. "'God helps those who help
W HAT ARE Toe LTVIHG FOB.— A pastor,
walking out recently, met a little girl be
longing to bis floek. As they walked on
together, be spoke to her of her studies,
and was pleased to see her manifesting an
int?te-t, amounting almost to enthusiasm,
in the cultivation of her inind.
"But why, Eilic," asked the pastor, "arc
you so anxious to succeed in your studies?
What do you mean to do with your educa
tion after you have got it?"
said the girl, "I want to learn,
that I may do some good in the world. I
don't want to have to tell the Lord in the
day of judgment that I have lived so long
in the world without having done any good
Noble purpose! Who of our young

PRETTY TOP HOOTS.
If their is anything prettier or more sen
sible than the short dresses which the la
dies wear now, what is it? If iherc is any
thing more bewitching than those cunning
little feet that trip with alight spring across
the streets and along our sidewalks, even in
the muddv days, what can it be? As when
lennyson s Princess and her traiu were
climbing the rocks,
"Many a light foot attune tike a jswel set
In the dark crag
So they shine over our rough cross-walks
and pavements. And you remember, that
one very charming characteristic of pretty
Arabella Allen in Pickwick was, that she
wore a very nice little pair of boots with fur
around the tops, which Mr. Pickwick caught
a glimpse of, as she was getting over the
style with a bevy of damsels who were en
joying their Chri.-tmas frolic, and "who,"
says the author, '"having pretty feet and
unexceptionable ankles, preferred standing
on the top rail five minutes, declaring that
they were too tTightened to raov."
The short dresses have led the ladies to
pay particular attention to their feet, and
they have almost reached perfection in those
thick, firm and artistically shaped shoes
which they now wear, iri place of the thin
soled and sprawling things around which
they u-cd to drabble their muddy skirts.
A woman s foot now is, as it ought to be,
a legitimate object of admiration, audit is
not neee-sary for curious loungers to wait
for muddy days and wind storms, and to
congregate on corners to see them, while
the modest young ladies could only express
their admiration of that wise compensation
of Providence, by which the same wind that
mussed their crinoline, blew dust into the
eyes of the wicked young men who would
take advantage of their confusion. We can
echo at this time an equal praise to the giri
that wears short dresses that Stedman sang
in the''sweet brogue of the Emerald 1.-!e,
to the girl with the balmoral:
'•Then here's to the gal *itb the balmoral
And dainty top-boot.* glinder,
Who'* a* digcrate a- she is swate,
And wise as she is tender."
GOOD ADVICE TO BOYS.— The following
good advice to boys, which we find in an
exchange, is worth reading and digesting.
How many men would now lie improved in
mind and moral.-, if' they had so acted in
their youthful day.-: The boy who spends an
hour of tac-h evening lonnging idly on a
street corner, wastes, in the course of a
single year, three hundred and sixty five
precious hours which, if applied to study,
would familiarize him with the rudiments at
least of almost any of the familiar sciences.
If, in addition to wasting an hour each
evening, he spends five cents for a cigar,
which is usually the case, the amount thus
wasted would pay for four of the leading
magazines of the country. Boys, think of
these thing-. Think how much precious
time and good money you are wasting, and
for what. The gratification afforded by the
lounge on the corner, or by the cigar, is not
only temporal r. v, n t positively hurtful You
cannot indulge in those practices without
seriou-ly injuring yourselves. You acquire
idle and wastefol habits, which will cling to
you through life, and grow upon yen with
each succeeding year. You may in after
life -hake them off, but the probabilities are
that the habits thus formed in early life will
remain with you to your dying day. Be
warned then in time, and resolve that a- the
hour spent in idleness is gone forever, you
will improve each passing one, and thereby
fit yourselves for usefulness aDd happiness.
A MAIDEN'S FIRST LOVE. —Human na
ture has no essence more pure; the world
knows nothing more chaste; heaven has en
dowed the moral heart with no feelings
more holy than the nascent love of a young
virgin's soul. The warmest language of the
-anny South is too cold to shadow forth even
a faint outline of that enthusiastic sentiment.
And God has made the richest language
poor in that respect, because the hearts
that thrill with love's emotions are too
sacred for the common contemplation. The
musical voice of love stirs the source of the
sweetest thought within the human breast,
and steals into the inost profound recesses of
the soul, touching the chords that never
vibrated before, and calling into genera!
companionship delicious hopes till then un
known. Ves. the light of a young madien's
first love breaks dimly but beautifully upon
her, as the silver lustre of a star glimmers
through the thickly woven bower: the first
blush that mantles her cheeks, as she feels
the primal influences, is faint and pure as
that which a rose leaf might cast upon
marble, lint how rapidly does that light
grow stronger and flush deeper, until the
powerful effulgence of the one irradiates
every corner of the heart, and the crimson
glow of the other suffuses every feature of
TIIF. GIFTS OF HEAVEN TO WOMAN. —
The first and "most important quality in the
female sex is sweetness of temper. Heaven
did not give to them insinuation and per
suasion in order to be surly; it did not
make them weak in order to be imperious;
it did not give to them a sweet voice in or
der to be employed in scolding ; nor did it
provide them delicate features in order to be
disfigured by anger.
AFTECTION. —On the proper and complete
exercise of the affections alone the best hap
piness of life depends : and, as the meanest
scrape of gauze, of bead, or of tinsel looks
beautiful and costly through the reflecting
mirror of the kaleidoscope, so does the most
common and dreary scene acquire attraction
and value when beheld through the beauti
fying medium of gratified affection.
A GOOD GUlDE. —Every young man is
cagciiy asking the best way of getting on in
life. The Bible gives a very brief answer to
the question : '"Walk in the way of good
men, and keep the paths of the righteous."
Many books of advice and direction have
been written, but that is the gist of them
AFFLICTION.—The sorrowing believer like
a noble and imperial bird, though some
times driven down by the storm, yet keeps
his plumes expanded and his eye on heaven,
until, on the first gleam of sunshine, he
shakes his wet and weary pinion, and eagle
like, towers again to the sun.
IF we did but know how little some enjoy
the great things that they possess, there
would not be so mueh envy in the world.
A SOUL without prayer is like a solitary'
sheep without a shepherd. The tempter
sees it and lures it away into his snare.

The Alabama Claims.—The New York
Album, the organ of the English residents of
this country, says :
The English journals, it seems to us, arc
too much excited on this question.
In this city and country Mr. Sum
ner is regarded as a political enthusiast
whose opinions must be accepted with a
certain amount of mental reservation, ilis
speech on the Alabama question was; in the
first instance, regarded a neither tuorc nor
less than an individual opinion, and the
exaggerated importance which has been
attached to it on the other side of the At
lantic, is a source of surprise on this. Mr.
Sumner is, undoubtedly a great egotist, and
wished to be the inouth-piece of a great na
tion, but his speech is entitled to little more
consideration than Mr. Chandler's and the
people of the United States know that the
latter is little better than an irresponsible
agent when he mounts his British hobby
horse. Mr. Sumner's speech created very
little sensation, to use a popular expression,
in America, and as it has not been endorsed
by the adrnini-tration at Washington, there
is no reason why it should have agitated
the British public. We trust, however, ~-
tluit we are correct in supposing that the
London journals attach more importance to
Mr. Sumner's dration than the English
Government docs. The bulls in the gold
room here, however, ran the premium up
to 44J, mauily in consequence of this Ala
bama speech of the 31assachusetts Senator,
and the bulls in gold and the bears in stocks
are trying to make believe that war is a
probable contingency, but in our opinion,
it is a very improbable one, and the journals
on this side that are directly or indirectly,
urging the people on to such a catastrophe,
are productive of grave public evil. There
is no more danger of war between the two
nations than there was a year ago, and
those who endeavor to make out that there
is are working against international peace.
The Alabama question ought now to be al
lowed to rest, as, after what has been al
ready said, no good can be done by agitat
ing it afresh. All farther controversy will
result, under existing circumstances, in
nothing but irritation.
EMIGRATION OK LONDON WORKMEN.—
About six months sin ;e a body of London
workingmcß formed themselves into a so
ciety, under the title of the "Mutual Con
solidation and Co operative Emigration
Land Company," with the object of raising
a capital of £'250,000 in £1 shares, payable
by weekly instalments; the money so raised
to be u-ed from time to time in the emigra
tion of the members. The society was duly
registered under the Friendly Societies Act,
and met weekly at the Eleetic Hall, Den
mark -treet, Seho. Shortly after the forma
tion of the society its promoters placed
themselves in communication with the Gov
ernor and Legislature of the Nebraska Ter
ritory, United States, by whom a large tract
of land vm offered to tlio ociet v at a moro
nominal price, and upon conditions by which
the society could carry out its plan of co-op
eration and family colonization. This offer
and its conditions were, after some negotia
ii >ns, accepted, and the correspondence be
tween the Governor of Nebraska and the
committee of the society was, a few weeks
since, sent to Mr. John Bright, the Presi
dent of the Board of Trade, by a deputation
from the society, reported in the public
journals. 'The right honorable gentleman,
though unable to comply with the request
| of the deputaion for governmental sanction
' to the scheme, expressed himself as highly
favorable to the objects of the society
About three hundred members, chiefly
-killed artisan--, have already enrolled them
selves in the sociely. which has now com
mewed praciieal operations: and on Satur
day morning last sixteen of the members,
chosen by ballot, and named "'The Pio
neers," took their departure for Nebraska
Territory in the -hip Paraguay, from the
Victoria decks, under the leader-ship of
Mr. E. G. Smith, the first secretray of the
Society. The whole expenses of the emi
gration is born by the society, the members
of which were all working men, and as soon
as letters are received from these "pioneers"'
of the society, should they he of a favorable
natun-, a ballot for another lot of emigrants
will take place, and be continued periodical
ly, until the capital of company is exhaust
ed. The emigrants who left on Saturday
were all single men, it being thought desira
ble to ascertain further particulars before
sending out any married men with families.
—London Newt, Aprd26th,
FIFTY THOUSAND persons die of drunk
enness in England annually, and twelve
thousand of tbem are women. By the
way, in the United States thirty-five thou
sand persons die annually of drunkenness.
The population of England is about 22,000,-
000. while that of the United States is about
35,0<)0,000. In 1-ranee, with a population
of about 3f>,000,000, the annual number of
deaths from drunkenness is fifteen hundred
—a pretty strong evidence in favor of cheap
wines as a preventive of intoxication.
THERE ARE only two marriageable
girls at Coosa, Oregon. On Sundays half
a dozen or more young fellows sit all day
on the verandahs in front of the ladies'
houses, while each fair one looks at her fol
lower? through the half open window. The
lovers all the while are whittling bits of
white pine. At dark they move home.
But the damsels find these visits profita
ble, for there is generally left behind a pile
of shavings big enough to light fires the
rest of the week.

temperance before the Excise Board in New

that if you call tor water in England it Li
always brought hot. They suppose you
want to shave or make toddy. They do not
even water their stock over there.
