S. llouito of Rcp rt'Hontntivvs, expired tills evening at twenty minutes punt 7 o'clock, J tint aa the sun went down ovor una Ucnmiiui mountain valley, Ilia luat half hour was painless and pcacoful a death he cravua coiiritanliy uuring tno past luw weeks. Ho was surrounded by wife and son, and bis luitlitu! aocrutanos, Messrs. White and Scudder, and Mr. Cox and wile. Mr. Montgomery Blair bad been nearhimduringlus protracted illness, and all kindness possililo to alleviate and comlorl baa ucen bestowed by Mr. Fnir.ier, tho proprietor of the botel hero, and other lriendB. Mr. Uox said ho had been with Mr. Korr lor tho last two dnys, during which bo had been gradually sinking. On Friday bo conversed in whispers, consciously and intelligently giving directions to bis Secretary on pnvnlo mattors, and words of cheer to bis friends and con solation to his wilo and son. "On my arrival," said Mr.Cox, "alter giving him the kind mossages ol his Congressional friends, 1 asked bun if he was ready to go. JIo expressed bis entire content with a heroic gentleness which was one of his characteristics. lie conversed freely about the future world, its rowards, hopes and expecta tions with calmness and equanimity : ho had autl'ored so much that be desired to be relieved, and yet bo would not huvo his pain nllcviutcd, so as to dis tract or stupefy his mind. lie bused his hopes of a better world upon tho justice and benevolcnco which ho had en deavored to illustrate in his life. He impressed bis views ujion his son, who is just entering upon his manhood. II is wilo was nenr him constantly, and but lor the consolation of frienda would be incoiisoluMe." . , All proiwr direction has been mndo to take tho remains to Now Albany, Indiana, wbero Iho funeral will lake place. Mr. Korr is a member ol the Presbyterian church, and tho funeral services will be held in that church. No medical account can supply a proper statement of tho almost super natural endurance of the sufferer. 1 ho simple fact is his frame was but a mere skeleton, Thcro was no flesh left. The back-bono was apparent from the ab domen. Tho wonder is the man sur vived so long ; yet at no timo, ovon to the last, did he tail to recognize tboso about him. Ho talked of tho country, of bis relatives and of politics with Mr. Cox, and expressed with great serenity his hopes as a patriot in tho recent struggle. Ho was proud of tho part bo bad taken in publio allium, and without repining, be adhored to his peculiar tenets of philosophy and faith. About 4 o clock p. u., the death strug gle seemed approaching. His respira tion grow abort and leoblo. lie sank into a collapse, and ho seemed in great pain, and frequently tho word "sufl'oca- ,nMn.i l.lo IE..- in !: ktunnM Yet amid that trying scene ho still manifested not only his usual fortitude, but the atTectionnto recognition of bis friends. Ho pressed tho hands of Mr. Cox and Mr. Montgomery Blair, to the tormcr exclaiming: "Good-byo, dear irioud ; -Cod bless you." His pulse censed at tho wrists and his limbs as sumed a marblo coldness. A little timo passod on, and tho approach of tliognin monster seemed to be moment arily bullied by the extraordinary vital powers of tho sick man ; tho respira tions grew stronger, and at B o clock M. Iho pulse returned to tho wrists. tho heart beating with its usual force and regularity. As 7 o'clock drew near, tho hour of the sotting sun, Dr. Pope sat besido tho bed conversing with Mrs. lverr, the IricnUs liaviug momentarily returned, tho Doctor asked Mi. Korr: "Do you suffer any pain?" Tho ptttient shook his head. Do you leel easier now Y 110 nod ded his bead emphatically, at tho same moment fixing an earnest gaze on the Doctor, expressing at onto thanks Tor relief from suffering, thon fixing a slendy gar.o upon the ceiling his breath ing became porlcctiy natural and regu lar. Tho sun gradually declined bo hind the mountains, and as its last rays faintly glimmered on the horizon it seemed as if tho quenchless spirit was taking its last gaze through its bodily organs of vision upon things of oartb. r aintor and luinter grow Ins breathing, and nxed grew tho gaze. 1 be lamily and friends hastily gathered around tho bcdsido ; mo last iicart-brcaKlng laro wells were breathed ; his hronlhings frrow soft and fuint, like thoso of an nfnnt sleeninir. tho sun sank, and the deathless spirit took its noiseless flight, like " the Miiiiiner evening s last sigh that shuts tho rose." Ills LAST OrTICIAL ACTS. Tlio long course cf Mr. Kerr's Illness had in it muc h patbetio interest. A few weeks' labor as (Speaker of tho rorly lourtli uongrcss so exhausted his strength that from day to day he was too locblo to perform the duties imposed upon him by his onerous posi tion, but ho continued tho work until temporary retirement became Impora- tivo. x hen bis health was so much impaired that he forgot to fill the chair during his absence, and whon reminded of liia omission ho was too weak to re sume his position long enough to namo a Hpeaker pro Im. After a short sojourn in New York he again endeav ored to fill tho Sneakorshin. but anoth er attack soon compelled him to re linquish It. For weeks be was ill at bis houso in Washington, and only sufficiently recovered to journey to the Hook Alum springs, where be died. SKETCH OF HIS PUBLIC CAREER. lion. Michael C.

Ho opposed all illegal schemes for abstracting money from the National Treasury, insisted upon public officers being hold to a strict account, urged tho disconlinuanco of needless ofllce-holdors, and recommend ed bringing tho Government back to tho early rulus of honesty and econo my. Being an itnprcssivo spoakcr, and at all times fortified with facts, M r. Kerr commanded tho attention of the House wbonever ho spoke. His record is that ot an honest, upright and consistent Domocrat urm in his principles, with out partisanship, PREPARATIONS FOR THE FUNERAL Washington, August 20.

Although Presidents and Vice Presi dents have died while in office, this is the only cose where a Speaker of tho Houso has diod while occupying that position. Two sons ol F.rin, shoveling dirt on a hot day, stepped to rest, and ex changed views on the labor question. "Pat, this is mighty hard work we're at."

Wo t'jen made coffoo and rested for throo hours, at tho expiration ot which timo the march was resumed, the divide crossed, and about 8 a. m. tho command was in the valley of ono of tho branches of the Liitlle Jdg Horn. Jiy this timo In dians had been seen, and it was certain that wo could notsurpriso thorn, and it was determined to move at once to tho attack. Previous to this no division ot the regiment had boon made since tho or der was issued, on the Yollowstono, annulling wing and battalion organi zations. Gan. Custor informed mo bo would assign commands on the march. 1 was ordered by Lieut. W. W. Cooke, Adjutant, to assume command of Com panies M, A, and Q; Cart. Hcntoon, oi Companies II, D, and Kj Custor re taining C, E, F, I, and L, under his immediate command, and Company B, Cantain McDougall, in rear ot pack train. I assumed command of tbo com panies assigned to mo, and without any definite orders moved forward with tho rent of tho column, and well to its loft. I saw Bcntecn moving ftirthcr to the left, and, as they passed, he told mo be bad orders to move well to the left, and sweep evory thing before bim; I did not seo him again until about 2:30 p.m. The command moved down tho creek toward tho Little Big Horn vulloy, Custer, with five companies on tbo right bank, myself and throe com panies on the loll bank, and llenteon lurthcr to the loft, and out of sight As wo approached a deserted vil lage, in which was standing one fjwe, about 11a. m., Custor motioned me to cross to biro, which 1 did, and moved nearer to his column, until about 12:30 m., whon Lieut Cooke, Adjutant, came to mo and said tho villago was only two miles ahead, and running away. To "move forward at as rapid a gait as I thought prudent, and to chargo afterward, unci that tho wholo outfit would soon support me;" I think those were his oxset words. I at once took a fast trot, and moved down about two miles, when 1 came to a ford of tho river. 1 crossed immediately, and halted about ten minutes or less to gather tho battalion, sending word to Custer that 1 had everything in front of me, and that they were strong. 1 deployed, and with tho lioe scouts on my lult charged down the valley, driving the Indians with great ease for about two and a half miles. I, how ever, soon saw that I was being drawn into some trap, as they certainly would fight harder, and especially as tbey were noaring their village, which was still standing; besides 1 could not see Custer or any other support, and at tho snmo timo tho very earth seemed to grow Indians, and tbey were run ning toward me in swarms, and from all directions. 1 saw 1 must defend myself, and givo up tho attack mount ed. This 1 did, taking possession of a point of woods, and which furnished, nobr Ita edge, a shelter tor the horses ; dismounted and fought them on foot, making headway through the wood. I soon found myself in the near vicini ty of tho village, saw that I was fight ing odds of at least five to one, and that my only hope was to get out of the wood, where I would soon have been surrounded,andgainsomo high ground. I accomplished this by mounting and charging tho Indians between mo and tho bluffs on tho npposito sido of the river. I n this charge First Lieutenant Donald Mcintosh, Second Lieutonant Ben. 11. Hodgson, Bevonlh Cavalry, and Acting Assistant Surgeon J. M. DoWolf, were killed. I succeeded in reaching the top of tho bluff, with a Ions of the three officers and twenty nine enlisted men were killed, and seven men wounded. Almost at the samo timo 1 reached tho top, mounted men were seen to be coming toward us, and it proved to bo Col. iicntccn s battalion. Companies 11, D, and K ; we joined forces, and in a short time the pack train came up. as senior, my command was then Companies A, II, 1), G, 11, K, and M, about 300 men, and tho billowing officers: Captains loiileen,Wcir, r rcnch.ond McDougall ; First jjicut. tiodircy, Mathey, and Gibson : Second Lionts. Kdgerly. Wal lace, Yamum, and Hare; Aoting As sistant Surgeon loiter, first Lieut DcKudio was in me dismounted nghi in the woods, but, having some trouble with bis horse, aid not join the com msnd in lbs charge, and. hiding him self in lbs wood, joined the command alter nighttall ol the Z6th. Still bearing notbing or Custer, and with this roinforcment I moved down the river In the direction of th village, keening on th" bluffs. Ws bad heard firing in that direction, and knew it conic only bs Caster. I moved to the summit of the highest bluff, but seeing ana nesting ww.umg, ann vspa. tt or with DM company to open romrsnnics tion with tba othor command. Ho soon sent bsek word, by Liout. Hare, that ho could go no furthor, and that the Indians were getting around him. At this timo be was keeping up a heavy fire from bis skirmish line. I nt once turned everything back to tho first position I had taken on tho bluff, and which soemod to mo the best. I dis mounted the men, bad the horses and mules of tbo pack train driven together in a depression, put tho men on the crests of the bills making a depression, and had hardly dono so when I was furiously attacked. This was about 6 p. m. We hold our ground with the loss of eightoon enlisted men killed snd forty-six wounded until tbo attack oeasod, about 9 p. m. As I know, by this timo, their over whelming numbers, and bad given up any support from tho portion of tho regiment with Custor, I had the men dig rifle pits; barricaded with dead horses, mules, snd boxes of hard bread, the oncninrr of tho denression toward the Indians in whieh the animals were horded, and made every exertion to be ready for what 1 saw would be a tor riflo assault the noxt day. All this night tho men wore busy, and tbo In dians holding aoculpdanco underneath us in the bottom, and in our hearing. On tho morning of the 26th, I felt con- ttdonl that J. could bold my own, and was ready as fur as I could be, when, at daylight, about 2:30 a. m., I beard tho crack ol two rifles; this was the signal for the beginning of a fire that 1 nave never seen equallod. Evory rule was bandied by an expert and skilled marksman, and with a range that excecdod our carbine, and it was simply impossible to show any part of tho body before it was struck. We could see, as tho day brightened, count less hordes of thorn pouring up tho val ley from out of the village, and scamp ering over the high points toward the places designated fur thorn by their cbiels, and which entirely surrounded our position, lhey bad sufficient num bers to completely encirclo us, and men wore struck on opposite sides of the lines, from which the shots wore fired. I think wo were fighting all the Sioux nation, and also all the desperadoes, renegades, half-breeds, and squaw men, between the Missouri and the Arkan sas snd east of tho Rocky Mountains ; they must bave numbered at least 2,500 warriors. The firo did not slack en until about 9:30 a. m., and then wo discovered that they were making a lost desperato attempt, and which was directed against the line held by Com panics H and M j In this attack they charged closo enough to use their bows and arrows, and one man, lying dead within our lines, was touched by the "coup stick: ot onooi tho foremost In dians. W hen I say the stick wss only about ten or twolve feet long, some idea of the desperato and rocklcssflght. ing of these peoplo may be understood. This chargo of theirs was gallantly re pulsed by the men on that lino, led by Col. Bentoen. Thoy also cams close enough to aend their arrows into the line held by C'o'a D and K, but were driven awnv by a like charge of tho hiiu, wuicn a aeeonipanieu. tt e now bad many wounded, and the question of water was vital, as from 6 p. m. of the previous evening until now, 10 a. m. (about sixteen hours) wo , hod been without ... A skirmish line was formed, under Col. Beutceu, to protect tho descent of voluntoors down theniu in front ot bis position to roach the water.- We sac oeeded in getting some) canteens, al though many of the men were bit In doing so; the fury of the attack was now over, and to my astonishtnont the Indians were seen going tn parties to ward the village. But two aolulions occurred to us for this movement, that tbey were going lor something to vA, more amunition (as tbey bad been throwing arrows), or that Cns'jr was coming. Wo took aclvsr.t-.ge of this hill to till all vessel.: ''.h water, and soon had it by tbecam.i kottletull: but they continuod to wv.hdraw, and all firing ceased, save occasional shots from sharpshooters sent to annoy ns about tho water. About I p. m. tho grass in tho bottom was set on fire, and followed np by Indians, who en oouraged Its burning, and it was svi dent it was done lor a purpose, which purposo I discovered later on, to be tho creation of a denso cloud of smoke, behind which they wore packing and preparing to movo their fcpeys. It was between 6 and lp.ni. that the villago came out from behind tho clouds of smoke and dust Ws bad a closo and good view of them, as thoy mod away in tbo direction ol Dig Horn Mountains, moving in almost oerloct military order; tho length of the col umn was fully equal to that of a large division of the cavalry corps of the Army ol tbo Potomac, as I bave scon it on its march, Wo now thought of Custor, of whom nothing had been seen and nothing hoard since tbo aring in his direction about 6 p. m. on the eve ol the 25tb, and wo concluded that the Indiana had gotten between bim and us, and driven lnm toward the boat, at tho mouth or Little Dig Horn rivor, tho awful fate that did befall him novor occurring to any ot us as within the limits of possi bilities. During tho night I changed mv position, in order to socuro an un limited supply of water, and was pre pared fur their return, feeling sure they would do so, as thoy were In sueb numbers. But cnrlv in tho morn I ho of tho 27th, and whilo we were on the quivh for Indians, I saw with my glass a dust sonio distance down tho valley. There w as no certainty tor souio time what they were, but finally I satisfied myself they wore cavalry, and if so, could only bo Custer, as it was ahead of tho time tlrat I under stood that Gen. Torry oould be ex pected. Before this timo, howevor, I bad written a communication to Gen. Torry, and throo volunteers were to try and reach bim 1 1 bad no confidence in tho Indians with me, and could not get them tn do anything). II this dust were Indians, it wss possible tbey would not expect any one to leave. 1 he men started and wore told to go as near as was safe to detormine if the spprosching column wss white men, snd to return at once tn case they found ft so; but, U tbey were Indians, to push on to Gen. Terry. In a short time wo saw them returning ovor the high bluff already alluded to. ibey were accompanied by a scout who bad a note from Terry to Custer, saying, "Crow scouts bad come to ramp say. ing he had been whipped, but that It wait not believed." 1 think it was about 10:30 a. m. that Gen. Terry rode into my lines, and the fate of Custer and bis brave men was soon determin ed by Capt Bentoen proceeding with bis company to his battle groumd, and where were recorsized the following officers who were surrounded by the dead bodies of many of their aaea : tie. George A. Caster; Col. W. W. Cooks, Adjutant; Cspts. M. w. tveogb, u. W Yates, and T. W. Coster i First Lie tenants, A. K. Smith, James Calbona; Socond Lieutenants, W. V. Roilly, of mo oevenin vavairy snu 4. vniven don, Twontioth Infantry, temporarily attached to this regiment. The bodies ot First Lioutenant J. K. Porter and Second Lieutenants JI. M. Harrington and J. G. Sturgis, Sovonth Cavalry, and Assistant Sorgoon G. W. Lord, United States Army, wore not rocog nized ; but there) is every reasonable probability thoy wore killed. It was now oertain that the column of five companies with Custer had bcon hilled. The wounded in my lines were, during toe aitornoon and ovoningor me zau, movod to the camp of bcnornl Terry, and at 5 a. m. ot tbo 28th 1 proceeded with the regiment to tho battle ground of Custer, and burried 204 bodies, in cluding tho following named citizens : Mr. Boston Custer, Mr. Roed (a young nophow of Gon. Caster), and Mr. Kel logg, a correspondent ot tbe Ac'U xork Herald. The following named citizens and Indians wbo were with my com mand were also killed: Charles Key nolds (guide and hunter), Isaiah (col ored), interpreter ; Bloody Knito (wbo fell from immediately by my side); Bob Tailed Bull and Stab, of the In dian scouts. . After following over his trail, it is ovuiontto me that Custor intended to support me by moving further down the stream and attacking the village in flank; that bo found the distance greater to the ford than be anticipate od ; that be did charge, but bis march had taken so long, slthough his trail shows be moved rapidly, that they were ready for bim ; that Companies u snd f, and perhaps part ol Company E, crossed to lb village or attompted it at the charge, and were met by a staggering fire, and that tbey foil back to secure a position from which to do fund themselves; but thoy were fol lowed too closely by the Indians to permit bim to form sny kind of a lino. I think, had the regiment gone in as a body, and from tbe woods in which 1 fought advanced on the villago, that its destruction was certain, but be was fully confident thoy were running or he would not bave turned from mo. 1 think ( after the great number ot In dians there wore in the village) that the following reasons obtained for the misfortune: His rapid marching for two days and one night before tbe fight, attacking in the daytime at 12 m., and when tbey were on tho qui vive, instead of early in the morning, and lastly, bis unfortunate division of tbe regiment into three commands. . During my fight with the Indians I bad tho heartiest support from officers and men, bat tho conspicuous services of Brevet Ool. F. W. Bon toon I desire to call attention to especially, fur it ever a soldier deserved recognition by his Government for distinguished ser vices, he certainly docs. ' I enclose herewith his report of tho Operations of his battalion from the time of leaving the regiment nntU we joinod oommands on the hill. I also onloso an accurate list ot casualties as far as it can be made at the present time, separating them Into two lists "A," those killed in Gen. Custer's com mand ; "B," those killed and wounded in tho command I had. Tho number of Indians killed can only be approximated until we hear throngh the agencies. I saw the bodies of eighteen, and Capt Ball, Socond Cavalry, who mado a scout of thirteen miles over their trail, says that their graves were many along their line of march. It is simply impossible that numbers ot tbem should not bs nit, in the several charges they made so close to my line. They mado their approach through tbe deep gulches that led from the hilltop to the river; and when the jealous care with which tho Indian guards the bodies of killed and wound ed ia considered, it is not astonishing that their bodies were not found. It is probable that the stores loft by thorn snd destroyed the noxt two days, were to make room for many of them on their frotwt's. ' Tbe harrowing sight of the dead bodies crowning tbs height on which Custer fell, and which will remain viv idly in my momory until death, is too recent for me not to ask the good peo ple of this country whether a policy that sots opposing parties in the fiold armed, clothed, and oquipped by one and the same Government, should not be abolished. All of which is respect fully submitted.

Th Fall is a season of comparative leisure with tbo farmer, ana ample time is allorued bim to prepare tho ground thoroughly, and to dig the holes of large size, and to prepare the work in the most perfect manner. In the Spring a thousand jobs are pressing on the farmer, all demanding bis immedi ate attention, and the orchard is usu ally deforred to tho last, when every other crop would suffer less by the delay. . , If a tree is planted in tho Fall, the earth bocomea firmly settled around tho roots before Spring ; and if the weather should prove, as It ircqnenliy does, warm in February and March, yonng roots will be formed, often three ! i i . . k I . : .1 menus lung , snu u luu pittuiiiiir ib ue- laycd until Spring, after these roots have put out, tbey are broken off and lost in tho act of removal from the nursery, and consequently so much of tba vital energy ot tho tre is lost in tha effort of nature to repair the injury. ll planting ts delayed until spring, it is almost always put off uutil a late period after tho buds bave considera ble swelled and many of the fibrous roots have put oat ; those then become dried and many ol tbom are lost, and from tba drv westhor that frcauenllv follows, causes the death of thousands of trees annually.

Tho subjeot of birds and their rela tion to agriculture has an importanco which is not generally appreciated, bat which is being enforced by havoc which is being worked by insects where birds have been destroyed. A Rich mond (Va.) paper recently stated that oaa news cumo irom evory toDacco- & rowing district of tho Stato, tho plants ling eaten by the fly. Thus, in tho opinion of the paper, tho chief staple of a largo part of Virginia was in dun- gor. 'Ibis special peril to the Virginia tobacco crop has grown tbo last twenty years. It is believed that ono of tbe chief causes is the destruction wrought of lato years upon tbo birds. With the end of tho war an indiscriminate hunt for birds has begun and ever since has bcon continued. 1 bo greatest enemy of insect life is tho bird, and as tho birds have been destroyed in Virginia, every one bas noticed tbo increase ol insects that attack tho crops. The same lesson has long sinco been learned in other countries, so that it has becomo an accepted maxim in Europe to foster the birds, and in Australia, and of late in this country, European birds have been imported for tho simple purpose ot insect destruction. In a report of tho Commissioner of Agriculture thora is an article from tbe pen ot rrot. beorge U. rorkins, ot Vermont, in which lie says that there are in tlie State of Vermont probably not less than 800 snecics of leuidoDter- ous insects, (i. c., tlie moth and cuttor flics), and in tho whole United Slates there are not less, probably, than 4,000. Hut loavingthorcst or the states. 1 rol. Porkins confines himself in the follow ing calculation to Vermont, and works out tho following alarming results : " It we suppose tbo number ol species in this Statu to bo 800, the increase will be something like this : Each female lays on sverago 350 eggs but wo will place tbo number at dOO. .Now suppose in the year 1871 thoro oxists only ono pair of each species, there would be during the year zw.vw oggs iroduced, wbicb would develop into MO.000 caterpillars. If half ol them were females, next Tear we should have 120,000 pair of insects, which would produco 36,000,000 caterpillars for 1873, and so on, so that in bve yoars there would come from the un checked increase ol only one pair ot each species 1,215,000,000,000,000 cat erpillars, or 200,000,000 for evory sin glo acre in tho Stato. It is true that as the arrangement (of things now is, not one in a hundred, U indued one in thousands of these eggs ever roach maturity, but tho groat agonts ot de struction are the birds. Making all possible deductions on account of all destructive influences except the birds, we have loft a verv larrre firruro. and if this is multiplied by the number of pairs actually living, and aa an know of some kinda there are thousands, tbe produce is something appalling." if sucn are me lacts in Vermont- here a cold climate tends to harrasa and diminish insect lifo, what must be the innumerable bordos ot Insect dep redators under warmor and more genial skies 7 If any of the animal creation, by its relation to the goneral economy of nature, deserves to be protected it is the birds. F'or every apparent evil in nature tho Creator has provided a remedy, and birds are the insect de- stroyors. The remedy is ono m wbicb all can bave a share in rendering effectual. Farmers and planters should exert themselves to protect the birds from the sonseless, savago, and more than useless slaughter to which they have boon condemned. ' These littlo beings not only minister to the solace of men by their beauty and melody, but they are even mora useful than thoy are beautiful. AO MOTHER. The othor day when a stern and dignified judgo ordered a prisoner to stand up and offer objoctiona, if ho had any, to being sentenced to prison for a long term ot years, tbe prisoner rose and said: "I never bad a mother to sbed tears over me I" His words entered every heart In the court room. Ho was a rough, bad man, in the middle age of life, and he had been convicted of burglary, but every heart softened toward bim as his lips uttered the words. He foltwhat ho said, and tlie tears rolled down bis cheeks, as be continued: "It 1 bad a mother s lovo and a moth er's tears some one to plead with me and pray with me 1 should not now be wbat l ami Abt That's it I There Is a power in a mother's lovo, in bor tears, plead ings and prayers, whoso influence is hardly to be realized. God pity tbe lad who bss no home to go to no mother to whom ho can tell bis griefs and troubles no mother to put her arms around his nock, and beseech Heaven to keep bim pure I Thcro is no heart liko a mother's. Hot child may wound it again and again, yea pierce it with a sword, and its lost pulsations will still boat with love for tho ingrato. It is tho first to loescuao his faults, the last to condemn. Thoro is no lovo liko a mother's none so en during, so tender, so far reaching. It is lavished upon the child in the i radio, and it follows the boy ovor the ocean. It calls up tbowanderor tbo nrst thing in tho morning, and it remains with him until sleep closes tho eyes, n bon a mother's love for her offspring dios out, it is a certain sign thst no baa be come too atrocious to longer live among them. There is no tears liko a motbor's. Nothing csn so lighten the sorrow of the child nothing so restrain a mind from wandering into ovil paths. The man who looks back over bis child hood and youth regrets nothing ss much ss that be has brought tears of sorrow and sadness to a fond mother's eyes. Every tcsr a mother sheds ovor a wayward Child is rocoraoQ in vne great book, and he sbsll snswer for it There are no prayers liks a mother's none that reach so fur, and nono so earnest The wanderer on foreign shores feels this in bis heart, and ho is thankful to Heaven that he can fool it. Kneeling at her bodsido and asking tbo angels to guide ths foot of bor children in right paths, wbo doubts that a moth er's prayers are beard in Heaven T "1 never bad a molber to sbed tears over me I" The sorrowful words of that burglar might bs the words of many evil doors "JXo motbor' means aching beans, hardened minds, deadly woes, and paths which lead to ruin. Heaven be kind to the lad who must battle bia way through tha world without a mother's boundless love to give bim aops, sirengia ana courage. Tbe potato-bugs are getting to be a regular nuisance in tbe eastern States. A party of them was diecoverd one night recently trying to roll off a bar rel of aew potatoes from the front door ot a country store. ECCLESIASTICAL HISTORY OJf THE CANDIDATES. An exebango publishes tbe follow ing t Governor lluyos was brought up in tho Prosbyterisn faith by an un clo on bis mother's sido of tho bouse ; but It appears bo did not adhere close ly to it, as bs now, although not member, attends tho Mothodist Episco pal church with bis wifo, who is in full communion. Governor Tilden is a Presbyterian from conviction, and is a mem her of tlie Madison Square Church, in Now York city, until latoly under the pastoral care of tho Roy. Dr. Wm. Adams. GovornorTilden does not, liko Govornor Hayes, go lo church with his wifo, one reason being that be is still unmarried. Mr. Wheelor is a member of the Congregational Church at Ma lono, N. Y.. tho place of bis nativity and residence. Ho accompatiiod his wifo as long as she lived to the same Chnrch, but he has beon'awidoworfor a short timo. Govornor Hendricks is tho son of a Presbyterian elder, and has some relatives In the ministry of tho Presbyterian church. Ho was reared in the Presbyterian faith, as might be expected, but bis wifo boing an Episcopalian bo bas thrown asido tho Confession of Faith and adopted the Thirty-nine Articles. it will thus bo seen, It tho bistory Is fall and complete, that Wheeler and lildcn are the most stable churchmen. Neither of tbom bas ever changed his religion, but each ono abides in tho faith in which he was raised in youth. But Gov. Tilden is not entitled to any credit for remaining stoadfust to the faith of bis futhors, for bo bad no wifo to turn away his heart from tho princi ples in which he Was trained in early lire. Haves and Hendricks have bo til lapsed from Prosbyterianism, and we do not know how the churches will view their apostasy. a printers' dream. A printer sat in his offico chair, his boots were patched and his coat thread bare, while bis face looked weary and worn with care, while sadly thinking of business debt, old Morpheus slowly round bim crept, and before be know it be soundly slept ; snd, sleeping, bo dreamed that he was dead, from trouble and toil bis spirit bad fled, and that not even a cow bell tolled, for the peaceful rctt of bis cowbido sole. As be wandered among the shades, that smoke and scorch in lower Hades, be shortly observed an iron door, that crcakingly swung on hinges ajar, but tho entrance was closed by a rod-hot bar, and Satan himself stood peeping out, watching for travelers thereabout, and thus to tuo passing printer spoke, snd with growling voice tho echoes wono : "Come in, my dear, it snail cost you nothing and nover fear ; this is tbe place where 1 cook tbe ones wbo nover pay their subscription sums, for though in lifo they may escape, they will find wben dead it is too lato; I ill show tbe place where 1 melt tbem thin, with red-hot chains and scraps of tin, and also whore I comb thoir heads with broken glass and melted lead, and if of refresh monts they only think, thero'sboilingwaterfor tbem to drink j there's the red-hot grindstone to grind down his nose, and red-hot rings to wear on bis toes, and if thoy mention they don't liko firo, I'll sew up thoir mouths with rod-hot wire; and then, dear sir, yoa should see them squirm whilo l roll tbem over and cook, to a . turn." With those last words tho prinlor awoke, and thought it all a practical joke ; but still at times so real did it seem, that he cannot believe it was all a dream; aud often be thinks with a chncklo and grin, of the lato of those who save their tin, and nover pay the printer. Talking to Horses. Horses can not nndorsland our languago except so iar cut it im auNaucittieu wiui auiiuu. j-u teach a colt to stop we must first pull on the bolter or bndlo and then say "hoi" If he obeys, we should always caress bim or give bim some thing to eat, and thus continue asso ciating tho word with the action until he obeys readily. In tbe same wsy we should teach him to go on-, touch ing bim lightly with tho whip as we give tho word ; if he obeys, reward him aa before. Now, the secret of training properly lies in using uniform langage, always employing the samo words evory time you want the borso to do a certain thing. This ambiguous use of laniruaco is a univalent fault How f requodtiy wo seo a man get into a saddle or buggy, gatbor up the lines or reins, givo his horse a cut or two with the whip, and say, "Come bora I" And again, when he dosiros bis horse to change Irom a trot to a walk, ho will ssy "ho I" or if he wants him to quit gnawing at a post, pulling at th? haltor, or to reprove bim tor shying, and for a dozen othor things, ho uses ' ths same word "bo." This a common fault with most men ; thoy talk too carelessly in training their horses, and in managing them. Be uniform in lan guago. Select a different word or sig nal lor every command, ana always use oach in its proper place and no othor. This would abolish, in a great measure, the aborainablo jerking, pull ing, whipping and otberwiso abusing this noble animal. A Permanent Home. To have a home which a man has himself reared or purchased which bo has improv ed or beautified a borne indeed,wbich, with honest pride and natural lovo, bo calls his own is an additional security for any man s virtue, buchahomehe loaves with regret ; to it ho gladly re turns, There ho finds innocent and gratifying pleasures. Thoro his wifo and little ones are happy and safe ; and there all his best slloctions tako root and grow. To such a pair, as time advances, the abode of their oarly and middle lifo. whon llhev have nerhans all departed, becomes constantly mora dear ; for it is now a scene of precious memories tbo undisturbed declining years I And say what lapse ol timo, what vanoa exporionco oi prosperity, or sorrow, can evor offaoe the good im pression mado by such a homo on tho tender heart of childhood I To tbo -tempted youth, to tho wanderer from virtuo, to tbs sad victim of misfortune, such remembrance has often provod a strengthening monitor, or a healing balm.
