The old year hath softly passed along,
Softly passes with solemn tread;
The wintry sky is dull and gray,
And clouds bang over his lonely way,
The path that leadirto the silent dead.
Many a hope Ass ho trampled down,
Under his feet as he strode along
And many a life has felt his frown,
As proudly wearing Youth's beautiful crown,
Ile walked in his spring -time halo and strong.
Joy has been with hint, hand in hank
And often he met with smiles and tears ;
Trouble and care, with their sorrowpl band,
Have followed him over from strap to strand,
And whispered their tales in his careless ears.
And now ho has come to his journey's end,
- His form is bent and his locks are white ;
And cur changeful thoughts we sadlY blend,
With keen regret for our dying friend,
As he floats away , with the stormy. night.
in Essay read before the i.Bradford County
Teri c here ,issociation, al purinigtop Boro ,
Nor. 8, 1872, by Miss )Any E:RLCE.
In taking a inute view of,the
rious objects about, us, as they come
to us from the hands of men, there is
scarcel,y any of. these productions
which are not susceptible of improve
ment. Although they proceed from
scientific men—men :who follow ow,
systems which are established for di
rection in opposition to speculation
and principles ; yet by careful medi
tation with regard to the theory and
object for which the thing exists, we
say „again,. there is scarcely anything
that may not be advanced in good
qualities. And, at the present age
many persons with the honors which
proceed from attaining to perfection
as an incentive to action, are seeking
to gain the ascendency with regard
to melioration; and then productions,
many of ialich are effected only by
arduous labor, are placed before us
as novelties, some of which are seem
ingly indispensable, and thousands of
which are utterly useless except to
occupy vacant places in the laborato
ry and museum halls, and pass away
the time for a class of persons called
curiosity seekers.
In discussing this subject .of, hn
provem9nt, let us, notice its two ex
tremes, or in other words, the ex
tremely injurious effects upon a per
son who fails to apply to practical
purposes, that which might be bene
ficial tti, his interests; and the impro
priety of extending the work of raeli
'oration, beyond the bounds of expe
lli.ency; and in conclusion draw a line
of distinction between the two, which
n ill more generally meet the true ac
ceptation of the term. He who neg
lects to advance himself in usefulness,
is incompetent to perform the moral
and civil duties of life. He who omits
to embrace the golden opportunities
must suffer that which necessarily
follows such an injudicious act, and
live a life of deterioration. He will
not even retain his intellectual posi
tion, but will gradually become infe
rior in mind. His God-given facul
ties will become exhausted by want
of sustenance, famished by ceasingto
partake of intellectual food, and re
lax their inherent faculty of perform
ing their proper functions ; and• the
physical system in sympathetic union
with the intellectual, becomes impair
ed, and the person is truly an object
of commisseration.
"On the-other hand, let the physi
cal system remain in a state of tran
quility, repose being the height of
ambition; idleness begets indisposi
tion to action, and under the ill ef
fects of, this the duties requisite ,to
the person's welfare are neglected;
the exercise which is indispensable
to the muscular system remains Un
heeded; not even the morning walks,
or the drive to town, or the overseeing
of the farm, the workshop, or the of
fice aro indulged in ; the person is
completely wrapped up in indolence,
sits down in ease, and little by little
the physical system loses its vivacity,
the healthy flush leaves the cheek,
paleness pervades the brow, the in
tellect yields its acuteness to perform
its proper functions, yea, is murder
ed outright, and the person passes
away almost unnoticed; and over the
title page of his history, may be
written a most debasing inscripthin,
which shone out in his every action,
and may be well marked throughout
his- whole biography. It is that of
concentrated laziness; and his former
1 :fe demands that the inscription up.
-.n his tombstone shall be indicative
of the truth that he died of inactivi
ty and habitual indolence.
We come to notice the other ex
treme; or, the impropriOy of extend
ing the work of melioration beyond
the bounds of expedience. The in-
clinations of a certain class of men
lead them toward fame, and a public
report of some action of theirs, or
some pike of mechanism which they
have invented, or of some intellectu
al production which they may have
set afloat among' the y people, gives
them notoriety to a certain extent,
and if somewhat gifted in the partic
ular branch of work with their mini
so much taken up, they essay to
make that a hobby, upon which they
expect to ride through this world,
regardless ofi everybody and every
thing except ithe thing in which they
themselves are interested. And they
expect the people to make obeisance
to them, and congratulate them on
-Avery hand, because they —'and no
' body else—have performed deeds so
very extraordinary.
Again, much time is, wasted, com
pletely thro,vn away, by class
of men, whose imaginary powers are
so wonderfully developed that they
are always building castles in the air.
Always trying to overdo and excel
all others, they endeavor to reach at
once by one grand splurge; the ut
most round in - ' the ladder of fame,
and could they have their desire
ratified and attain to that position,
would undoubtedly endeavor to add
another step—pat in another round
in the - ladder.
Such feed the midnight lamp with
their lives, endeavoring often in vain
but always secretly, to dev.ilop some
thing to astonish the world, and add
to their renown. Such rack their
brain to the uttermost, day and
night, year ii and year out they toil,
seemingly without any progress. ,No
matter'what barriers present them
selves, even though impossibilities
cross their path, yet they are nothing
but their immense castles, and move
on towards its completion regardless
of everything else.
Their mind is compleitely taken up
with their folly, and melioration car
ried to such an extent as brings dis
repute upon the noble and true mer
its of the work. Thus they sail over
life until their frail bark is complete
ly worn out, and made shipwreck
upon the shoals of Disappointment.
Thus we have noticed the two ex
tremes, or negligence with , regard to
embracing passing • opportunities,
and the excess to which the work
may be carried. Now we do not wish
yon to mistake our thoughts with re
gard to melioration, and think that
we dishonor its merits, or underrate
its value, and would in any way blast
the hopes of any engaged in the no
ble work. Nay, not so. The true
importance of the work cannot be
overrated, nor its true i)rinciple too
_deeply instilled into the minds of the
people. And in conclusion, we briefly
notice a medium between the two,
which will give better satisfaction to
those who follow it out, and also be
more respected by those with whom.
they daily come in contact.
Live for some object. Work to
some object. Ever keep this object
in view, out not have the attention
so fixed upon it as. to be regardless
of everybody and everything else.
Not be so all-absorbed by arty partic
ular enterprise, that you cannot live
in sympathetic union with your fel
low creatures, your friends and
Do not; worship any particular
productioh which you may have, ef
fected; as' your God—that is, have
that always before the mindllo the
neglect of your moral and civil du
ties. Do not ride in the same old
rut of some particular holiby, thus
making yourself an object of ridicule
among your neighbors.
If you have a work to do, do it
with a will; do it ; with a view to im
prove upon it, if it lie 3 within your
power; do it with a cheerful heart, a
heart open to the feelings and inter.
eats of others as well as of-your own,
that they as well as yon may be ben
efited thereby. If in some grand en
terprise You have failed, do not be
discs,uraged ; but gather up the wreck
of he failure, and with perseverence
as a motto, and duty as a guide,
move on conquering, and be con
queror ! And the difficulties will all
disappear, the barriers swill be re
moved, and you will have friends on
every hand who will be in sympathy
with you,, and if need be, lend a help
ing hand.
Whatever our l ocation may be,
there is always something in which
we can improve. If a teacher, there
is much for us' to learn in this re
spect. Oftentimes we see things
which we might have bettered, after
the time has passed by.
At the end of the year, at the end
of the term, at the end of the week,
at the end of the day, we often see
that in which we might have improv
ed. Then let us take the experience
of the past and learn lessons there
from, to be of use tows in the future.
Always endeavor to improve in.what
ever station we may occupy; anirnc
cupyingt as we the people of the 19th
century do, a pre-eniinence with re'
Bard to time, a position which not
only overlooks the past, as far back
as memory reaches, bat even to that
point from whence tradition and his
tory arises, it is no more than justice
to those who have gone before us,
and laid the foundation upon which
we may work, that we are percepti
ble of the true and living principles,
which proceed from their economy,
and move on with the unfinished
work, and at every step leave the
imprints of Improvement
The subject is likely to 'be warm ;
but, if an illustration of rolling-mill
work may affect the 'value of khe
statement that "" one-half of the
world does not know how the other
half lives," or works, it may not be
unprofitable to consider it. , Away
from home the wildest questions are
asked about rolling mill work and
wages. "Is the work all done by
machinery ?" " Can I get $lO a day
in 'the mill?" Is it very hot ink the
furnaces?" The work is not all done
by machinery, as many an aching'
frame of bone and muscle can testify;
and the questioner would probably
not get $lO, if he got no more than
he could earn. An equivocal Yes !
disposes of the third enquiry, which
is construed into meaning the neigh
borhood as well as the furnace. the
labor of most of the rolling-mill men,
who work by the ton, begins in the.
morning. Viewed in' the light of
other people's hours, however, it be
gins in the night. At 4 o'clock, they
must be up and doing, for,at 5, one
half of the world being yet. in bed,
sharp whistles will be calling the
rollers to their tongs and hooks, and
the iron must be hot before that.,
During the early part of the day, the
heat, though intense, is patiently
borne with the body clothed; blithe
tereen 12 and 3 o'clock, when the
rolls, furnaces and iron are all hiss
ing with heat, the endurance of the
men is tasked to the utmost._ By
the time 'the first-named hour is
struck, all metal substances have be
dome too hot for the unaccustomed
to basal°, and the air about the fur
naces and rolls is stifling. Ninety
five degrees in a shady office is a ter
rible affliction to many.,but often the
thermometer marks from 125 to 135
degrees of heat.. Shirts dripping
with perspiration are discarded, and
muscular development may be studi
ed to good advantrge. Pantaloons
are wet and steaming hot, and even
shoes must be occasionally emptied
of the sweat that runs into them.
Countenances begin to wear distrem
ed appearances, as if the physical
strain was telling severely, upon the
toughest. It is human to be "bush
ed "on a hot day. One look at the
dozen stout men that will be pros
trated in the last round or two will
convince any one that the largest
wages they may receive are well
earned.- 7 --9. Loufs Weekly Register.

The remarks of Gen. Goo. P.
Jones, of the Nashville Union and
American, before the Press Associa
tion of Tennessee, are so truthful and
apply with such force to this commu
nity that we , insert them for the ben
efit of newswaper. proprietors ,and
those persons who think they have
the privilege of gratniously using the
colnmns of a journal to advertise
their business whenever they feel so
disposed :
We do too much work without
compensation. We pay too much
money without any return whatever.
We establish au eleemosynary insti
tution at our own -expense. We. keep
a charity school on our own hook.
We conduct business as if we owe
everything to the public and the pub
lic are not indebted to us a farthing.
We are preyed upon, by the sharpers
and the innocent alike. We adver- 1
ttse gratniotisly every week when we
should have the money for it. The
general public are entirely . ignorant
—probably ourselves are not ful
ly aware' of the extent to which
newspapers are burdened with 'the
insidious drain upon their resources.
It insuates itself in every conceivable
form. It does it through reporters,
through agents, through correspond
ents, through business managers,
through proprietors, and generally,
too, with as much disadvantage to
the public as to the press.
There is not a business, from the
dispensation of ginger cakes and ci
der to the largest manufactory,which
will not advertise with you gratis ;
which will not, if you listen to it, en
deavor to convince you that it is
your duty to the' public 'to do so.
There is not an aspirant for public
'station and when I contemplate
the numbers of these I experience an
overwhelming sense of commingled
amazement and disgust—frOtn con , .
stable to the senate of ' the Union,
who does not conscientiously believe
it ,to be the imperative cIUV of the
press; daily and syeekly,'`to speak
with pen of telescopic power of his
meteroscopic deservings. Even' that
army of strollers, which infest the
country and the people as a sort of
visitation of providence for our in
iquities, from the street corner seller
of prize candy or magic oil to the
operatic impressario, will expect you
to write an indefinite number of edi
torials on a tlfree square advertise
ment for five days, changeable daily
without charge. We are required to
write up and urge up and put thro'
every enterprise ; great or small, that
seems to have a possible connection
vith the public. But we never hear
of a- share of stock or of a dividend.
The chinch, the state; commerce, hi
dustry, art, inception and humbug
alike seem to regard .the press as
their servitors, and to be run and
sustained for their advantage. .
There is a line of demarcation in
all these things, between public de
mand, public utility, -newspaper duty
and individual gain. That line should
be defined and held, as it in reality
is, the dead line. Not a letter, nor a
space, nor a figure, nor a comma, nor
a period—nothing of all the innmer
iable particles, that enter into the
form or structure of a daily or week
ly newspaper—is There that its pick
ing up i nn(' ° do7n does not
cost cash, money. • Not a revolution
=of the press, not a square inch of pa
per, at does not cost something in
can . This should be understood by
th public. _ If it is not, its correc
tive should be practiced by the press.
I do not mean that the press should
abandon its position as being the
foremost charitable institution in' the
world. It should hold to that for its
munificent liberality, after purging
itself of nine-tenths of the daily
swindles practiced upon it, will ex
ceed that of any other business.
To get rid of the stupendous fraud
of gratuitious advertising, this can
cer, canker—call it anything, pro
vided yon select an epithet that will
characterize it strong enough—l can
prescribe no better rule than this.
Put voluntarily and without• charge
any and everything into your paper
which you deem advantageous to it
in being beneficial to the public. All
else exclude, being of advantage to
those who wish to make money up
on your capital and enterprise. Hold
your space at its value. Fix your
space at a fair price for your circula
tion and adhere to them. Fair deal
ing will accomplish much more than
foul will, at all times and every
where.. For be ft known that the
American press is not a vampire to
be constantly. sucking life blood out
of the people. It has a vastly high
er mission, but it should ' also be
known that it will no longer be made
the victim of the thousands of vam
pires that come daily,to the counters
in every conceivable garb, to have
its life blood incontinently sucked
KEEPII4G GIMPES.—The editor of the'
Fruit Recorder says he haefgood
cess in keeping grapes in winter byi
cutting the clusters with as long
stems as possible, removing bruised_
or decayed specimens,. dipping the
end of the stem in mucilage wrap
ping in pieces of newspaper, packing
carefully in shallow boxes and storing
the same in. , a cool place till cold
weather, and then transferring -themt
to a room next or between zooms
that are kept warm through the--win
ter, For this purpose he recom
mends Diann, lona, Isabella. and
Rogers 1-5. Even Coucord retains
its virtues till January. He has al
so had very good luck Mai grapes,
picking them right" from the vines
and putting in' boxes in layers with
paper between. A California grape
grower, it iresaid, keeps his grapes
any desirable length of time by pack
ing them,- when perfectly free from
external moisture, in dry sawdust,
and thenlburying them in thelronnd
under a shed. He uses nail casks
for packing, because they are easily
and cheaply procured, but any cask
or box would serve the same pur
pose. The sawdust must be perfect
ly dried, either in the sun or in au
oven, and the place where the pack
ages are buried must be secured
against,the possibility of any water
settling around them.

A striking example of the so-called
authoritative misuse of language is
the use of had in the phrases I had
rather, you had better. This has the
sanction of usage for centuries, not
only by the English-speaking people
generally, but by their greatest and
most careful writers. Nothing, how
ever, amqng the few enduring cer
tainties•of language, is more certain
than that had, expresses perfected
and past. possession. How, then,
consistently 'with reason, and with
its constant and universally accepted
menning in every !other connection,
. _
can it be used to express future ac
tion? A perception of this 'incongru
ity and a consequent uneasiness as
to the use of - these phrases ; is becOna
itig quite common, and it is safe to
say that they will ere long begin to
be dropped in favor of -a wore logical
and self-consistent plitaseology. Had.
rather will probably yield to would
rathr, and had better to might better.
In like position is the use of the per-,
e - ct infinitive •to express contingent
action, as if I had have done,"l was
ready to have gone-which is support'
ed by the best usage of centuries:
Bishop Jewell writes : " The church
was ready to have fallen." There
seems to be no doubt that this is
logically ineorrec,t. Jewell meant
that the church was ready to 'fall; we
should say, If I h . ad done, I was
ready to go; and we may be sure
that ere long this phraseology will be
deliberately substituted for the other,
on logical grounds. ,
I pass over xiyht away in the sense
& immediately, which is, in common
use here among the most cultivated
people; merely with the mention of it
as; altogether unjustifiable on any
ground, as - hag no affinity what
ever with raigh.tway. It is an un
doubfabl Americanism, one of . the
very 'few words:or phrases, nut slang,
which can be properly so called. D!'i
fereat to is as exclusively British. It
has come into use since the Common
wealOk and the Restoration, and it
pervjides British speech and litera
ture of even the highest class.
A. word used - in both countries, but
more commonly with ns, , lengthy,s a
marked example illustrating my pres
nut position. It is illogical, at vari 7
ance with analogy, and it is entirely
neettess, as it has usurped who
knows how or why ? the rightful
.place of ,a good and well-connected
English Word, which does properly
express that which lengthy - expresses
only on sufferance, and by reason of
!general but unjustifiable usage. And
Set even Mr. Lowell not only uses it,
but speaks well of it as a word "
compromising between long and
tedious," which we have "given back
to England." It is true that English
does need such a word, and there-
fore had it before there could haTe
been Americanisms. For did not
Puritan sermons precede President's
messages? And adjectiVes expressing
likeness in quality are formed in En ,
glish from immaterial nouns,
by a
suffix which which would have at
once occurred to Mr. Lowell,, if he
had used, instead of the ROmance
word tedious, the Anglo-Saxon zeearz
some or tiresome'. The family is nist.
merous,' lonesome, wholesome, irksome,
handsome, loathsome, frolicsome, bur
deniome, and the like: And so from
Anglo-Saxon times to vei'y - modern
days-we have - had the very analogous
word longsome, _meaning sq long as
to be almost wearisome of tedious. ,
It is common with the Elizabethan.
writers, so well known to Mr. Lowell,
and Prior is cited for its use by Web,
stei. Bishop Hall, in his "Defense
of the Humble Remonstrance," writes
" They have had so little meey on
him as to put him to the penance of
their longsome volume." It is mani
fest that writers who use worisome,
irk:oste and burdens.onte, - can have no
consistent objectiOn to longsorite,.
which has long and eminent usage in
RS ,favor, and which'. Mr.
.. Lowell
might well ; bringup again as Tenny
son his brought up rathe. The ob
jection to lengthy seems )to 'be well
taken. As to our haVing given the
latter back to England it may be
said' that as instance of ' the use of
the word •before Englaid gave her
people and her language,-to America
has n6t yet been produced, 'and ac
cording to my observation, does not'
exist. - . . • ,
Another error common among cul
tivated writers and: speakers, is the
use of adverbs with the verb to look,'
as, He looked wretchedly, she looked
beautifully 4*might as well be-said
that the grass looks greenly, or the
- man looks bluely.. A man who lives
wretchedly, - will probably look
wretched; a woman who is formed
and dieSsed „beautifully, wilf,..look
beautiful. -The error is the crinse:
,quence of a confuSion of look in, the
*sense of to direct the eye, and look in
the sense to, see, to appear.. The
same persons who say that a man .
looked wretchedly or a w.nnan look
ed beautifully,-would not say that he
seemed 'Wretchedly or she seemed
beantifultY.. Iu the phrases, He look- -
ed well, she seemed ill, well and ill
are not really adverbs. Such phrases.
as, I had rather,-you hail better,.had_
have done, ready to have fallen, right
away, different to, and looked wretch
edly, have, it need hardly be said;
nothing in common with such as, We
made the land, the ship stood up the.
