The butter from this .countirlas long enjoyed an excellent rep utation and commanded an extra price, tind any incentive to continued excellence is a step in the right direction.

The annual re-union of the children and grand-children of Mrs. WF.aurnir RIDG WAY took place at the old , homestead near Monroeton,on the 3d of the present mouth, and was a very enjoyable affair. The re unions of this happy family have grown into an established institution, and have been occasions of great enjoyment and happiness to all who have participated in them. The meeting this year was no ex ception to the 'yule ; it Was a continual round of pleasure from early, morning un- til evening. It seemed that everything which could contribute to the enjoyment of the occasion had been provided. Lov ing bands had beautifully decorated the old home until it seemed instinct with life ; beautiful bouquets smiled from the midst of .1 fantastically-arranged ever greens in nearly every nook and corner of the house ; the long veranda was so orna mented with wreaths and_ festoons of flowers and evergreens, that it seemed like one huge bouquet. The boys—for they were'all boys and girls again—opened the' festivities of the day by tiring alialute in real military style, which seemed to be thiasignal for the frolic to begin ; and it did begin in right good earnest, and cori: tinned all day long without intermission or diminution. Swinging, croquet play ing, extemporized concerts,—everything that they thought would contribute to the enjoyment of • the day, was .engaged in with a zeal that was truly refreshinz to witness. The refreshments for the occa sion seemed to have been gotten i'ip with out any thought of expense or labor; everything that heart could wish, appetite crave or ingenuity invent was there to contribute•to the enjoyment of the inner man. Turkeys which had ruled the barn yard with lordly dignity all summer, now lay on the table stripped of all their , dig nity, as if overcome by the scone; hens that had Lid their nests and laid away all summer, were by a little gentle persuasion induced to lay on the table undersa pie crust: In short, nature and art seemed to. vie with each other in contributing to the. enjoyment Of the occasion. Amidst all ills festiliities, one object was kept constantly in view,—it was Monirra'A BtaTunay ,; so everithing was done to this deference of Mother. She was made .to feel that the festivities were in honor of lairi t and for herlenjoyment, and a large number 3f beautiful presents were given her as a token of their love. The number present was forty-one (nearly all children or grandchildren)rather an un fashionable family as to numbers. "May their shadows never. grow less." And I understand there IS'a prospect of it being larger soon; as the only - immarried'son is looking around for a youdig lady to add to the family. Below are a few lines extemporized by a lady &lest, not as an exhibition of merit, but to gii-e expression to the feelirgs of the family. The lines were sung to the air of "Auld Lang Syne." We gather at the old home nest Anettue year has gone. We come a joyous, happy guest, To cheer the dear old tome. We gather 'round the festive board, Not as In days of yore, But with our little ones we erne To greet you all once more. Mother .1 the name how sweet It Is, Dearest of ail on earth : Today we gather borne agate To celebrate her birth. Some have crossed to the other side, To heaven's bright borne so fair, But father, mother, sister, brother, All today are 'here. Time and change have left their furrows Deep upon her brow ; - Mother's dearest eartnlypreasnre • Lett to children now. Soon she'll brush the dews of Jotdan. Soon will cross Its spray.— Soon shell join the loved In heaven, • And-tread the pearly way. O bow sweet to know In heaven. That the broken chain That wax shattered here on earth Will there be Joined again. • Sweet to know that all the loved ones On the other shore. Are waiting wlth.thetr songs to greet as. • • There to part po more. . E. E. DI ORANGE MESTIZO.
