Ely Shllit.
On her chain of life is rust,
On her spirit's wing is duet ;
She bath let the spoiler in—
She bath mated with her sin--
She bath opened wide the door;
Crime has passed the threshold o'er
Wherefore has she gone astray?
Stood Temptation in her way ?
With its eyes so glittering bright—
Clothed in angel robes of light.
Oh I her story soon io told,
Once a lamb within the fold,
Stranger voices lured her thence,
In her trusting innocence.
Woe!; she had not strength to keep
With the Shepherd of the sheep ;
For the fleece so spotless white
Then became the hue of night,
And she stood, in her despair,
Bleating for the Shepherd's care.
Woe 1 that none might lead her back
From the bloodhound on her track.
Hunger prowled about her path
With a wild hyena wrath.
Scorn came leaping from its lair
With a defiant growl and stare;
And she grappled, all in vain,
With the fangs of want and pain,
Hope and mercy shut the gate
On this heart so desolate.
So she turned again to ein,
What had she to lose or win?
Resting on her life a stain
Deeper than the brand of Cain.
Heard she not a pitying tone,
Weeping in her shame alone?
Was thr e not a, human heart
In her anguish bore a pert?
None to hold a beacon light
Up before her dorketed sight?
No; tho altar was not there,
For a canting priesthood's prayer.
"She hath fallen ! Let her die"—
Said the Levitt', passing by;
So she turned again to sin,
What had she to lose or win ?
Sisters! there is work to do—
Field of labor here for you,
Ye who pour the wine and oil,
Up, and rest not from your toil.
Till the bruised and wounded heart,
Aching 6Om the Tempter's dart,
Sore and weary with its pain,
!nail be bound and healed again—
Till, no more defiled by sin,
Like the pardoned Magdalen,
Kneeling in repentance sweet,
She may wash the Savior's feet
With her tears—that while they roll,
Blot the sin stain from her soul—
Do ye ask for your reward ?
"They aro blest who serve the Lord."
A merchant resided many years, high
ly respected, at Canton and Macao,
when a sudden reverse of fortune re
duced him from a state of affluence to
the greatest necessity.
A Chinese merchant, to whom he
had formerly rendered service, grate
fully offered him an immediate loan .
of ten thousand dollars, which the
gentleman accepted, and gave his bond
for the amount ; this the Chinese im
mediately threw into the fire, saying,
"NI , hen you, my friend, first came to
China, I was a poor man. You took
me by the hand, and, assisting my
honest endeavors, made me rich. Our
eireumetairees are now reversed—l sec
you poor, while I have affluence."
The ystanders had snatched the
bond from the flames ; the merchant,
sensibly: affected by such generos
ity, pressed his Chinese friend to take
the security, which ho did and then
effectually destroyed it.
But the disciple of Confucius, obser
ving the renewed distress this act oc
casioned the merchant, said ho would
accept the latter's watch, or any little
valuable as a memorial of theirfriend•
ship. The merchant immediately pre.
sonted his watch, and the Chinese, in
return, give him an old iron seal, say
ing; "Take this seal, it is one I have
long used, and possesses no intrinsic
value; but as you are going to India,to
look after your outstanding concerns,
should misfortune further attend you
draw upon me for any sum of money
you may stand in need of, seal it with
this signet, sign it with your own hand
and I will pay the money."

[Under this head we give opinions of lead

than one side of a question.]
The South---Its Industry, Its Busi
ness and Its Prospects.
[From tim Now York Tinos.]
Whatever be the misconceptions
which prevail throughout the South
concerning its political relations and
interests, on the general question of
material interest, there would seem
to be ground for complete agreement.
Financially and industrially bankrupt,
its old labor.systetn suddenly overturn
ed, its vision of independent prosperi
ty collapsed, the people might be ex
pected to realize the necessity of vig
orous effort to escape from the ruin
that surrounds them. Their journals,
formerly foremost in partizan discus.
sior., now proclaim the first duty of
man to be the cultivation of the soil,
the introduction of a greater diversity
of crops ; and the organization of an in
dustry to which they have hitherto
been strangers. Especially is the need
of imported help admitted. Northern
capital is prayed for, that the recuper
ative process may bo accelerated.—
Northern men aro invited, that lands
now valenless may be made marketable
and productive. Northern enterprise
is called upon to extend its ramifica
tion southward that home wants may
be supplied, and places now desolate
may become scenes of thrifty labor.—
all these points the more influential
of our Southern cotemporarieg have
for months past evinced a keen and
withal a sensible appreciation. And
wo have been inclined to accept the
tone that has been cultivated as an
assurance that the South thoroughly
comprehended its wants, and would be
prepared to turn to good account eve
ry available means of help.
'Thus far, we fear, these expectations
have not been fulfilled. In the easily
managed matter of immigration, liter•
ally nothing has boon done. At this
moment the avenues of travel to the
Western States aro choked with fami•
lies in search of new homes. The hu
man stream never ran that way in
greater volume or with greater veloci
ty than now. Minnesota reports more
new-corners than in any other season.
From lowa we hear of crowds of set
tlerS in all the more sparselyreopled
counties. Missouri and Kansas are re
ceiving daily largo accessions to their
population. The land sales in Wiscon
sin tell of a similar state of things
there. Indeed, everywhere through
out the West the tide of settlement
flows with a steadiness that knows no
ebb. Doubtless a very largo propor
tion is furnished by the population of
older States. Immigration, however,
supplies its full quota; not only swell
ing the immediate amount of settle
ment, but multiplying the sources of
future growth.
And all this time what is the South
doing or acquiring? What State in
that section can truthfully tell of a
well-considered plan for drawing im•
migrants thither ? Which of the num
ber can report accessions of foreigners
or of new comers of any class ? So
far as we know, not one. Speculative
companies exist in this City, and else
where in the North, having for their
object the introduction of immigrants
with a view to profit through the aide
of land; and now and then we read of
twenty or thirty strangers who have
gone South, to farm, under the auspi
ces of ono or another of these organi-'
zations. Apart from these movements,
nothing is being done. Certainly noth
ing by the authorities or the people of
the States most deeply interested in
the subject. Of this there is ample
testimony. The New Orleans Picayuire
the other day commented upon the
fact that five hundred German immi
grants who had arrived there, and
whose continuance in that State might
have been easily secured, had passed
up the river to St. Louis without an
effort being made to retain them. The
labor system of the State is confessed
ly disorganized. White labor is ur
gently required. Yet Louisiana uoith•
or attempts to draw thither emigrants
nor uses its opportunities to influence
the choice of emigrants who touch
there in the ordinary way. And as it
is with Louisiana so it is with Georgia,
Alabama, Mississippi, the Carolinas
and Virginia. Not one vigorous effort
has been made by any of them to ac
quire a share of that stream of immi
gration which is with almost incredi
ble rapidily filling and enriching the
more remote and, in many respects,
less attractive States of the West.
The comparatively small accessions
which the South has received since the
war, have been nearly altogether de
rived from our own population. Our
traders and farmers have contributed a
per tentage that might ho vastly in
creased were the conditions favorable.
Our merchants have crammed South
ern stores on credit. Many of our
traders have gone to Southern cities
with largo stocks, and tho go-ahead
spirit of Northern enterprise. Adven
turous operators have entered exten
sively into lumbering, milling, and a
a dozen other businesses, profitable in
themselves and beneficial to the local
ities in which they are carried on.—
Small bodies of agriculturists have
gone into Virginia, especially into the
counties adjacent to Washington, and
their dexterous industry has already
shown how much might be done in the
line of improvement. Had these per
sons been "able to report' favorably of
their reception, of their intercourse
with the Southern people, and of the
prospect in respect of comfort and
prosperity, they would havo been
quickly followed by tens of thousands,
who now look to the West for fields
of future labor. But the reports have
not been favcfitble. They have on the
contrary, been calculated to dishearten
and disgust. We have striven to cul
tivate a different opinion. We haVe
cherished a hope that the unfavorable
representations which from time to
time found their way into print rela
ted to exceptional cases, and would be
counteracted when the whole truth
came to light. But the evidence is un
fortunately conclusive the other - way.
There is no longer reason to doubt
that, as a rule, the Northerners who
have gone South to trade, to grow
cotton, or to farm, have encountered a
reception the reverse of friendly.—
There aro localitiesi - Of course, where
courtesy and kindness have been dis
played. Generally speaking, however,
there has not been kindness, or courte
sy, or fair play, or even adequate pro
tection to life and property. Northern
men are compelled to abandon planta
tions to escape assassination, to quit
farms they have purchased, and to
throw up businesses to get rid of an
noyance and avoid threatened injury.
The prevailing Southern opinion is ad
verse to them. They are treated as
intruders—often as enemies. If they
sell goods they aro unable to collect
payment for them, not merely because
of poverty, but because of the ruling
disposition to cheat and despoil the ac
cursed Yankee.
Upon this latter point, a discussion
which is in progress in Georgia news
papers, in common with those of other
States, is unpleasantly suggestive.—
Devices to stay the summary collection
of debts albeit unjust, may not be
wholly incompatible with ultimate
honesty. But when suggestions are
promulgated and sanctioned looking
to the repudiation 'of debts incurred
anterior to the war, and the creation
of obstacles in the path of Northern
creditors who have generously granted
business accommodation since the war,
the case assumes a different and much
more diserenitable aspect.
For the sake of the South, and alto,
gethor irrespective of political consid
erations, this state of things is to be
deplored. It indicates so complete a
lack of common prudence and common
sense as to be almost incomprehensible
to those who look at the subject from
a national point of view.
The South is terribly in need of cap
ital and labor. With resources excel
ling those of any other region of the
globe it is poor even unto beggary.—
The family estates of distinguished
Virginians are advertised for sale,with
but a small chance of realizing the val
ue which their- division into small
farms would produce. Tho rich cotton
lands of Mississippi sell at less than
one-third the price they commanded
before the rebellion. In Alabama im
proved real estate is disposed of with
difficulty at rates that can hardly be
called nominal. And yet nothing is
done by the Southern people to extri
cate themselves from their distressed
condition. They require large addi
tions to their numbers, and they take
the best possible method to render
these additions impossible. They want
money and enterprise, and they pur
sue a course which will assuredly repel
both. To this extent, then, the gloom
which overhangs their prospects is at
tributable entirely to themselves.
Negro Labor in the South.
Wo aro informed by an observer
who has had extensive opportunities
for surveyffig the condition and pros
perity of negro labor in the Southern
States, that it would be a very liberal
estimate to say that the blacks per
formed one-half as much labor as they
fbrmerly did when in slavery. Their
former habits (enforced habits, it is
true,) of steady and continuous work,
have, to a largo extent, given place to
indolence, and employers find it diffi
cult to rely upon them in those plant
ing operations where formerly their
industry was so effective. In some
places the condition of things is ex
ceedingly bad, and planters fool utter
ly discouraged. The question:of com
pensating the blacks has been one of
the hardest of settlement. Owing to
the want of money last spring, a groat
proportion•of the planters agreed to
give the negroes a share in the crop;
but this mode is found to have led to
endless confusion and trouble, beside
producing discontent on all hands; and
the plan will he generally abolished
hereafter, and thatof weekly or month
ly wages in actual money substituted.
There are many grave and threaten
ing difficulties connected with this ne
gro qnestion in the South, and those
who think they can all be solved by
simply giving the black population the
privilege of voting, will yet find them
selves greatly mistaken.—N. Y. Times.

Beautiful Women,
"How much handsomer the women
East are than they used to be," said
an unsophisticated friend the other
day, fresh from the wilds of the great
Western country, where the latest
fashions had not yet penetrated.
"I don't know how it is„bnt . I bad
an Impression, that in NeW York city
especially, the men, as a rule, wore
finer looking than the women ; but it
does not strike rue so now. On the
contrary, all women seem to be beau
tiful; it is the men who are gaunt and
wretched looking, by comparison."
Very true. Do'you know the rea
son why ? I will tell
,you. It is the
fashion now for women to be handsome,
and for men to have the dyspepsia.
You see the result—the women are
handsome, the mon all have the dye.
Why should not women be hand
some, and of what use aro natural gifts.
When you can buy masses of beautiful
hair at so much per pound, a complex
ion to match at a dollar a paekage,and
a form superior in nearly every re
spect to the original article, at any
dressmaker's ?
"You don't mean to say that all that
hair iB bought ?"
I don't mean to say anything about
it. I only ask you to look at all the
hairdressers' windows, and judge for
yourself whether every women can
possibly own the mountain of hair
which she piles on the back of hor
"It is immense, to be sure ; but I
toll you it's 'stunning;' it would make
a man feel proud to own a piece of prop
erty like that."
It is not necessary to record my in
dignat reply. I. simply desire to give
an illustration of the prevalent opinion
among mon, that women were never
so handsome as they are now.
Unquestionably, women nover.look
ed better than they do now; there is a
wonderful harmony between their
splendid hair, their rich complexions,
falso•or truo, and the beauty of color
and stylish elegance of the present
mode of dress.
It is to be hoped they.will continue
it long enough to have all the best
points reproduced in the next genera
Oddly enough, the fair hair which
has been the lashion for several years
past, to such an extent as to induce
many ladies to dye or bleach their hair,
is now to be seen in profusion upon
three fourths of the ttvo - and three
year old babies, and very lovely it is.
Everything has its use, and perhaps
this passion, which seemed so absurd,
will bring us nearer to the true north
ern and celestial type of beauty.
To return to dress; lot any ono con
trast the coquettish costumes of to-day
with the short, straight skirts and
poke bonnets of thirty or forty years
ago,and the contrast will be imrneasur-
ably in our favor.
Young girls especially have a great
advantage over their grandmothers
and great grandmothers in their youth.
The pretty toquet, the basquine, the
trailed or looped up dress, constitues
the prettiest and most becoming of all
toilettes to young girls, provided al.
ways they are neat and pay duo at
tention to cleanliness ' and brightness
of their hair, and the fit and finish of
their gloves and botinos.
Another charming fancy has taken
possession of out belles this Season, re
placing the white hat in their affec
tions. This is the white Angola cloth
cloak. It is indeed delicious—wool,
soft, fleecy, long and curly, the trim
ming consisting only of epanletts,
made of white wool fringe, and largo
spar or pearl buttons. Even white ca
mel have not sufficient delicacy to suit
the freshness of these snowy gar
White bonnets aro not adapted to
these cloaks, they present too much
the appearance of a bridal ; but the
white toquet, with a band or blue vel
vet, and short Oft of curled white os
trich feathers, suits it exactly, afford
ing the relief of color, without any sac
rifice of harinony, and interposing the
mass of curls, or bands of shining
gold or brown, between the white of
the cloak and the rim of the hat.
It must be confessed, however, that
white cloaks are an expensive luxury.
They soil soon, and they require an
exquisite toilette to correspond with
Ahem. It is not necessary, however,
to - wear them on all occasions ; and
they aro not more costly than white
furs and other things which are
thought necessary to a lady's complete
ward robe.
A PRAYELL—Ono of the most estima
ble of men some years ago died and
left a wife and several children. Among
the latter was a boy of eight or ten
years, who was the, very personifica
tion of mischief. His mother finding
she could not control him, put him in
charge of a reverend gentleman of the
neighborhood, who made it a rule,
whenever the boy committed a fault
which required correction, to give him
a taste of the rod, and then make him
got on his knees and ask God to for
give the sin committed and bless his

Chemistry of the Atmosphere.
A divine arranger must have spread
out the thin, filmy curtain of the sky,
' like that thin film of water,
soap bubble, which, like the atmos
phere, reflects and decomposes the
light reflected on its surface. As with
light,so also the atmosphere is the con
ductor of sound. Professor Cooke
says :
"Every ono who has dropped a stone
into the water of a still lake.has no
ticed the system Of waves - which,' with
its ever-increasing circles, spreads in
every direction from the stone; but all
may not know that when .two stones
are struck together in the air a similar
system of racial waves spread, in ever
widening spheres, through the, atrnos
phere, and that it is the waves break
ing on the' tyrn`anum of our ears, like
the waves of water on a:sand-beach,
which produce the sensation which wo
call'sound. Two stones thus struck
together give rise to waves of unequal
size, following ono another at irregu.
lar intervals; and such waves produce
an unpleasant bensatiOrt on our- midi=
tort' nerves which we call noise. But
if, instead of striking . together two
stones, we set in vibration the string
of a piano -forte or the reed of an orga
nic pipe,_ we excite a system of waves,
all of equal 'sizO,.and succeeding.-one
another with regularity, and these
breaking on the car produce by their
regular beats what we call a musical
note. If the waves follow ono anoth
er with such rapidity that one hundred
and twenty-eight break on the tympa
num every second, the note has a fixed
pitch called in music C natural. If the
waves come faster than this, the pitch
id lower. What you are all familiar
with as the pitch of a musical note de
pends then, on the rapidity with which
tho waves of sound strike the ear, and
may evidently be measured by the
number of waves breaking on the tym
panum in a second."
Science demonstrates that the differ
ence between colors is of precisely the
same kind its the difference' between
tones. • Red, yellow, green, blue, vio

stop as the whole scale of colors
spreads out before us the analogy of
light to sound becomes still more evi•
dent. And thus wonderful are the
forces the atmosphere holds and the
varieties of arrangement it displays, it
modifies and diffuses heat, while it
holds and dispenses the mysterious
and astonishing agencies of electricity,
just as the electrical machine is con
stantly rubbing together glass and silk;
just as we rub a stick of Sealing wax
or a glass tube with a warm silk hand
kerchief, so the air is always rubbing
over the face of the earth with greater
or less rapidity. Nature seems to be
a groat electrical machine. 'As man
-guards his roof from the destructive
action of lightning—dashing to the
earth, crashing, rending and burning
on its way—by erecting the lighting
rod, whose bristling points quietly
drain the clouds, or, failing to do this,
receive the charge and bear it harmless
to the earth, so God has made a harm
loss conductor in every pointed loaf,
every blade of grass. It is said that a
common blade of grass, pointed with
nature's exquisite workmanship, is'
three times as effectual as the finest
cambric needle, and a . single sprig is
far more efficient than the motalic
points of the best constructed rod.—
What, then, must be the agency of a
single forest in disarming the forces of
the storms of their terrors—while the
same Almighty hand has made rain
drops and snow-flakes to be conductors,
bridges for the lightning iu the clouds,

THEIR NAMES.—The days of the week

day and Monday to the sup and moon
respectively ; Tuesday has its name
from Tuesca, whom the Saxons 'sup
posed to be supreme ruler ; Wednes
day, named after Woden, tho god of

Falstaff's questions concerning "hon

is only a sympton caused by some oth4

Effeots of Good Feed-on Mulch (lows.
Our cows give fully one third more
butter this year than last,due solely to,
good feeding and warm quarters in the
winter; They were cows I. bought
With the farm. They looked well, but
oroved to be poor milkers. They had
been suffered to go dry about the lst
of November, under the impression
that milking them • in the winter would
seriously injure them. the common
summer. And I have no doubt that
there is considerable truth in this idea,:
provided the' cows in,the 'winter have
nothing but cornstalks and straw and
are,not stabled. But if they are fed
liberally; they may be milked, not only.
without injure, but with positive ad
vantage. It favors the habit of secret-,
ing milk. Till within six weeks or.
two months of calving, a good cow,
with plenty of rich food, can give four
or five
of milk per day,and will
still be able to secure milk enough for
the calf. She will eat • and assitrillife
more food, and will get the habit of
secreting more milk. I believe there
is no better way of restoringthe milk
ing qualities of cows that bavr degen,
crated from poor management. I give,
my cows three quarts 'each of core
meal a day, and an abundant supply.
of C0111E441110 and straw. Instead of•
letting them go dry, in November, I
kept them stabled in cold weather, and
they gave more milk, or rather more
butter; after we commenced to' feed

than they did in August and Septern-.
her. I milked some of them till with.
in sir weeks of. calving. This is per
haps too much—ten weeks would be
better. The Cows, after we stopped
milking, fleshed up rapidly, and many
were the predictions that the cents
meal would spoil them for milk, But
it did not. They give more milk than
ever before, and it certainly, is very
much richer. The prospects now erg
that for the year commencing the
of last November till the let of next
November, they will give as much
again butter as they ever gave 'in a
year before. So much for good feeding
iu winter. We weigh every pound of
butter made,and feel confident that this
opinion will prove correct. I have not
yet fed meal this summer, but shall do
so at the, moment there is any indica-'
tions of a falling off in butter. In tacit
I should feed meal now if I had 1
buildings conveniently arranged fa
purpose. I have not the slightest
doubt that it would pay to give each
cow two quarts of corn and pea meal
a day. If twenty busbels of corn
year will double, or even add
to, the amount of butter and cheese
made by a cow, it is easy to figure;
whether It is profitable or rioS. Idg
not say they will not eat as much imps
and fodder as if they were not fed
meal. The more food they will eat
the bettter, provide it is turned into
butter and cheese.—liarris' Walks and
