Away by tho Mississippi,

And ttaon how happy I ahould bo 1

And thou wo nil should luivo somo bread,
And good, warm clothes for sister Sue,
And brother WUlle, who Is dend.

And broad nnd llttlo shoes ho'd havo,
And ho would thank his sister Jane ;

They heard my sister's wall.
Mnmmn, can't Christians bounties shed
Except on negroes J Can't they glvo
To sister Buo ond mo some bread,
And let your little daughters live?
I went to church, to-day, and heard
The preacher for tho negro pray ;
Put not tho first Imploring word
For hungry llttlo Christians say.
My little dress was worn out thin,
And I sat shivering In the cold j
While other llttlo girls put in
Tho box their sums of shining gold.
They told mo that this was to buy
Tor little negro girls somo bread ;

They laughed at my old fadod d reus,
And put on miny haughty nlrs j

Mamma, shan't we bo nenroes, too,
So wo can havo some clothes nnd bread

And brother Willie, who Is dead ?
Wiir.N men move to a new country,
they nro generally very slow to com
prehend tho changed condition of nf
fairs, and still slower to learn tho capa
bilities of their new situation. When
tho settlors of Western Bradford left
tho bleak hillsides of New England, and
her stony and ferllo soil, and entered
upon tho densoly timbered wilds of
Northern Pennsylvania, they first
passed by tho fertile and now densely
populated regions of tho Chemung Flats,
and made their way up among tho llrm
rooted hills; deciding, from previous
knowledge, that the river land was use
less for purposes of culture. They were
not accustomed to its variety of soil, so
they chose to battle with tho primitive
forest for tho mastery of tho hills rath
er than try to gain a subsistence from
tho bottom land. Wo now laugh at
them ns unwise, when wo seo Elnilra
spreading Its skirts up to tho baj-o of
our " hill country," nnd sitting by her
winding river, the beauty of Southern
But tho samo blindness adhered to
our early settlers in other respects, and
yet in none of them more than that of
fruit-raising. The frigid cllmato and
ungenerous soil of New England had
never taught them to make fruit a
means of comfort or of existence; and
when'thoy came to their new homo,
they forgot to ask tho question if there
was not a region adapted to its culture.
If wo look over tho first cleared farm
of tho towns of Columbia, Springfield,
Troy, and Burlington, wo aro struck nt
onco with tho small number of them
that possessed at an early day good, or
oven tolerable orchards. Tt has been
only within a few years that tho atten
tion of our farmers has been called to
this subject, and wo fear it never would
havo been, but for tho fact that a scarci
ty in neighboring markets first gave
them a hint that fruit-raising might be
made profitable. Tlicro aro farms witore
not ft dozen bushels of apples havo been
raised ; yet with proper caro there are
very few regions better adapted to the
raising of tho hardy varieties of fruit
than Western Bradford. It is u fact that
our market has been uncertain, but
only because farmers would allow it to
bo so. Our fruit-raisers instead of seek
Ing ft market, havo shiftlessly waited
for somo " contractor" to comonround
nnu engage their llttlo quantum of
fruit, or finding that tho sale was likely
to bo dull, havo converted It into cider.
Our farmers will yet havo to learn that
tho readiest and safest way to dispose
of their products, is to seek their own
"But," says Mr. Solemn'un, "will
fruit-raising pay?" Let us ask you a
question, Mr. S. " Will butter-making
pay." I'ay, of course it will ; hasn't
it nlways paid better than anything else
WO could uo?" " No, Mr. 8., beforoour
railroads gave us tho means of trans
portation nnd before Elniira was touched
by tho Erie, wo could not get ten cents
a pound for our butter after carrying it
oy wagon twenty or thirty miles. Dr.
Bullock tells us that he had toglvofortv
pounds of butler for ono pound of poor
tea, in mo early (lays ; did butter-mak
lug pay then ? So of frult-raiting now ;
tho demand has Just reached us, and our
farmers must awnko to this fact that
fruit-raising U going to pay. Wo now
raise but little more fruit than we need
for homo consumption, yet wo huvo
closo at hand, two young and rapidly
growing cities, Eltnlra and Williams

FOE YOUTHFUL HEADERS.
The ltnlilillt and the Foxrtf
ON a wild, exposed promontory, Jut
ting out Into tho flea, round which tho
wild waves roared and foamed, was a
rabbit warren. Hundreds of these pret
ty gray animals, with their odd white
tails and sleek skins, had made their
They wero very happy rabbits, on tho
whole, getting plenty of grass and roots
to eat (1 am afraid they sometimes went
Into tho neighboring turnlp-fleld, whore
they had no right to go) ; but every
now nnd then tho man to whom the
warren belonged would como with some
other men, nnd tho whole day their
guns went bang! bang! bang! and num
bers of the rabbits wero killed; for the
man sold their skins to the furrier, to
make muffs, nnd tippets, nnd culls to
keep peoplo warm. And then It was
with the rabbits as It is with men after
nations havo been fighting against each
other. Ono had lost a mother, a mother
her child, a wlfo her husband ; and for a
time they wero very snd. But rabbits
are thoughtless creatu s ; and theso
soon forgot their friends, and went play
ing hide-and-seek in aud out of their
holes, and behind their sand-hills, just
as if there was no such a thing as a gun
in tho world.
Tho rabbits had other enemies than
tho men and tho guns, and these wero
tho foxes. In a hole on tho wide of a
gorse-covered hill lived two old foxes
and their cubs, ns young foxes are call
ed. Now foxes, like other folks, must
cat ; and it happens that what they like
best they can only obtain by stealing.
Hut, after all, foxes do not know that it
is wrong to steal, so wo must not be too
hard on them.
Foxes aro narticularlv fond of ducks
and geese, to which they cannot possi
bly assert any right, being domestic an
imals; but rabbits nro uNn great favor
ites of theirs, and to these they seem to
havo moro claim, as, being wild, they
cannot belong to nny one, nny moro than
the foxes whom nobody claims. It hap
pened that ono of the young foxes who
dwelt on tho side of tho furze-covered
hill had been very ill, and thecause
was this : being very young, too young,
indeed, to seek Ids own food, his teeth
wero small, and not sullicientlv stroncr
to crack a bone. But, though young,
ho was greedy, and his father bringing
homo a nice fat duck, ho seized a leg,
but alas for him ! ho was unable to man
ago it, and tho bono stuck in Ids throat.
For somo time his family despaired of
his life, but at tho time our btory com
mences ho was slowly recovering.
"Ah! father," said Bushytail, in a
desponding tone, " I'm so hungry !"
"Delighted to hear it," replied tho
father. "What have you got in the
house, Mrs. Fox'.'"
"Nothing," replied tho mother, de
" Nothing," exclaimed Mr. Fox.
" Why, what huvo you dono with that
goose I brought homo only yesterday?"
" it's all gone. Keineokonnd Slyboots
wero out on tho hill all tho morning,
and came homo so hungry! But why
havo you brought home nothing ? Yo'u
havo been out all day. 1 made sura you
would at least bring home a rabbit."'
" l'vo been out hunting," said tho fox,
"Of course," replied his wife, "but
why did you not bring something
"I havo been hunting horses, nnd
men, and dogs," said the fox, with a
lofty air; " but I was hardly In a condl
Hon, nnd so they escaped from my pur
suit.," Tho young foxes looked up admiring
ly, but tho wife sighed, for she knew
her husband was not speaking tho truth,
nnd that .so far from his having been
hunting tho dogs and hon.es, ho had
hlmt-oir been hunted, and had had a
narrow escape. Indeed, had It not been
for tho night closing in, ho would never
have returned homo to his family, but
been torn In pieces by tho dogs, and his
tall his hnndsomo bushy tail cut off
and hung up its a-trophy In thoSqulru's
"I am so hungry" sighed Bushvtall
again. " I fancy I could pick just a lit

plied tho father. " As soon us tho night

In n little whllo tho father set off, and
in about an hour returned with a charm

of which not only Bushytail but the
rest of tho family partook, and pro
nounced delicious. Th

hack a rabbit, and so on for
for hi! Was, ill SpltO Of hU other hHilr
a kind father, and did not caro whal

But as tho young foxes irrow. thov r.

homo a rabbit. At last, so many of the
rabbits had lost some ono from their
families, that they determined to find
out tho murderer, nnd put a btop to his
thefts; so they set a watch, and soon
found out that It was tho foxes. But
what they were to do by way of pun
ishment they knew not. In their di
lemma they thought of the man and
tho gun who came and banged away at
" If ho would only glvo them n good
fright. Wo don't wish to kill them,"
said the rabbits.
So they sent a deputation to the man
who owned tho gun, begging him to
frighten away the foxes.
Tho man promised all they nsked;
and they went away qui to satisfied with
their success, and said to each other,
that after all, tho matt was not so very
badly disposed toward them, for he was
going to protect them from the foxes
However, It was from no love of the
rabbits that tho man had determined to

was afraid that he should lo.so a great

down to tho warren, and having found
the track the fox had made, set a nooso
or snare, that ho might become entan
gled in it.
That evening, Mr. Fox having hurt
his foot in trying togct into a hen-roost,
his wlfo was obliged to go by herself.
As she noared tho warren, sho thought
she heard a noise; so sho turned down
and got over tho hedge at some distance
from her usual place, and thus font time
bhc escaped tho snare.
"I am alone," said Mrs. Fox, "to
night; and if I only tako homo n little
rabbit the children will not have enough
for supper. I'll try and get a good fat
ope." She managed to catch a fine
plump ono, and throwing It over her
shoulder she turned homeward. " 1
may as well go the shortest way," said
Mrs. Fox ; "tills rabbit is a heavy load."
So saying sho took tho old track, and
only discovered her error when it was
too late to retreat. She was, caught,
owing in a great measure to her heavy
load, which helped to entangle her more
and moro in her struggles to get free.
The man, hearing the scuflle, camo up,
and soon killed poor Mrs. Fox.
Tho warrcn-kecpsr buried Mrs. Fox
cloe by, and sot a nooo on her grave;
for he said to himself, "sho has doubt
less relations, who will come to look
after her and my rabbits, and I may
catch them too."
Mr. Fox, nnd Beinecko, nnd Bushy
tail, and Slyboots sat waiting and lis
tening, but no mother nor any supper
made Its appearance. They sighed and
growled, but at last were obliged to lie
down to sleep without anything to eat.
Tho next day passed, and as you may
guess, no Mrs. Fox appeared. Sho was
lying so quiet under the green sod witli
tho noo.so above her, waiting for tho?o
sho loved best. Poor Beynard feared
tho worst. Such a kind, affectionate
wife, so loving a mother, could hardly
leave a lame husband and helpless chil
dren to starve. No ! death alone could
Account for her absonc. Two days pass
ed, and he and bis young ones wero al
most perishing. Still bis foot was so
bad from the nail he had run into it (hut
ho could hardly move; and, had his life
only been at stake, ho would gladly havo
Iain down and died.
But Heinceke, Bushytail, and Sly
boots wero starving. " I will try nnd
reach the warren," said he. . So bidding
tho young ones keep heart till ho re
turned, ho sallied forth. Slow wero his
steps.and weary tho way ; and the lo.s of
his kind companion made him feel very
sad. As he neared tho gap In tho wail
by which ho had been in the habit of
entering tho warren, what was it made
him lift his head and snuff the air?
He knew his wifo was not far off;
and as he entered tho warren, nnd saw
tho little mound whero poor Mother
lox was buried, ho uttered a low whine,
and lay down on it to dio ! For ho be
came entangled in tho thenooso; and
when the warren-keeper camo tho next
morning ho found Beynard stark and
stiff, his bones nearly through his skin,
and tho hair quito worn nway where ho
had slung tho stolen rabbits. Ami tho
young foxes ? What became of them ?
I really don't know what became of
Bushytail and Beinecko, but somo
day, perhaps, I will tell you the history
of Slyboots, which I happen to know.

While a lame iiiimber of Machines have been
oll'eied tothe public, somo of which possess points
of excellence nnd ncknowlcdgud merit, we nnvc
lonu felt what others have experienced, tho lie
cf sslty of a Machine more prfect In Its mechani
cal structure, combining In tho
SIMPLICITY WITH D0IIA11IL1TY,
nod whllo eopable of doing a
GREATER RANGE OF WORK,
ono that could bo easily understood and compre

To supply a Sewing-Machine free from the ob
jections attached to others has been noensy tnsk j
for we not only had to surpass other Machine, as
they appeared year ono, but also as Improved
from time to tlmn by more recent cxK-rlcnn.
