It is about a dozen yeah since business
—not pleasure, took we .to New Jerico,
the terminus of civilzaticin• and• the Warn
melover Railroad. And "a hard road to
travel" „that was. It had steeper grades,
sharper curves, and mare of them than,
it is to be hoped, ever put in peril thepub
lie life or limb before or since.
It was Saturday afternpon,and we were
to reach Jerieo at some lindelinite hour
thatevening, "time not Whig of the es
sence of the contract."
At a place called Blueruin we stopped
fifteen minutes to "liquor." There had
been a cock-fight, and several other fights,
and a big croud there that day, and every
body was in high glee.
The New Jerico delegation returned by
our• train, and rougher locking samples of
rustic rowdydom it would have been diffi
cult to find even in that ffivored region.—
Among them was a strapying siz-footer, a
very Hercules in proportions, with a cock
o'-the walk sort fo meager about him,
who took possession of two seats, deposi
ting his body on one and deadheading his
legs on the other. One cheek was puffed
out by an underlying tiuid i •uhile over and
anon with a backaction erk, he would
send near, a gill of tocci juice over his
abodlder, which those within rimge had

puzzle over. But there was no time to
settle it. The lady was standing and all
the seats were occupied. I was on,, the
point of offering her mine when a Touth
fulteoking gentleman of preposesing man
nera and almanac% ste s forward and
addressed thecesehout s rules
"Allow me,' he said po itely, "to turn

"Hey?" grunted the other.
The request was repeated.

"But, sir—" the gentleman began to ez

shouted the. bully, swiping to

striding up to the . young man, who didn't
seem quite-sensible of his danger, "you've _

other end of the car. He didn't get,*
immediately and when he did, he seemed
a little bewildered as to whether-he had
been knocked down;, or the Jrain run off
the track: 'He had enough- at all events,,
wherever it come frciin, as was manifest
from the subdued air - with which he took
ills departure forthe smoking-car, whither
his companions soon followed, no doubt
chuckling at the result, as usually do .the
chums'of a whipped bully.
-Pap Kilderkm, the proprietor of the
New jerico Rest, was the most communi
cative of hosts: Before bedtime that night;
I was thoroughly and accurately "up" in
all the gossip of the place, and had its'
scandalous statistics"at my fingers' ends.
Among other
'' things I , - learned that
"stated. preaching had hitherto been a
mong the wants of the community, but.
that a "supply" had been at last obtained,
and the new minister was expected to en
ter on his' uties on the morrow. • .- .."
"And a freshin' season he'll hev of it,"
said pap.
"Why so ?" I asked.
"Oh! Bill Grinkey an' .t'other Chaps
goiu'to break him termorror ; an' if you
want to see fun,.l'd edwise you toile that
' And I did go—out "to see fun," as Pap
Kilderkin suggested, bat I trust, from bet
ter motives. Pap went too-4.1. what
prompted,. I prefer not judging. . .
When we reached the church the min
ister had not yet made his appearance,
though a goodly number of hearers had
already'assembled.' A few minutes later
yesterday's delegation to the Blueruin cock
fight, headed by the vanquished bully,
with his eyes in full mourning, sauntered
in, and walked noisely down the aisle..
"That's Bill Grinkey," whispered Pap,
"an' them's other chaps."
"Make way for the mourners!" sang
out Bill, crowding, with • his companions;
into a front seat, where a boisterous, con
versation was struck up, mingled with' an
incessant cracking of peanuts.
• "I 'can tell you that progmnny," Pap
continued, "a pack 'of shootiu" crackers
i'll be teched off doorin' the first hymn,
an' a pair. o' game chickens as a couple
o' them chaps'got in their pockets, 'ill be
sought fightm, a§ soon as the tex.'s gin_
out, after which general Ned will bein or
der." ,
A sudden silence fell upon the congre
gation. Not a' murmur was heard, and
the peanuts ceased'to Crack. Lookingup,
I saw the minister in thepulpit; and guess
my surprise at recognizing him as the
youn.s man that had struck out so deftly
from his shoulder the day, before.
' With a clear, manly voice, he_gave out
a hymn, which Was.sung through without
interruption:.. A prayer :was offered up a
mong profound and decorous silence.—
Another hymn followed, and then a ser
mon, earnest, plain and practical with
outa wkord of can't in. it.. From the be
ginning to the end of tht exercises, not
an unseemingly sound was heard, save a
single incipient crow, promptly choked off
from one of the invisible chickens.
"I say Bill," I overheard from one of
"t'other chaps," as they made their way
out; `that parson's a trump'; he preaches
a down-right good lick, and fights fair
Without Wm' or gougin."
It was easy to see the new minister's
status was settled. I have since heard
that Bill arizikey has 'become an exem
plary member of the church; and the
parson the happy husband _of the young
lady, as' whose champion he first achiev
ed popularity.—Bli judge Clark

In a certain small town on the Missis
sippi lived a man who - made horse-trad
ing tv business. He bought up, horses for
.a city market, Aml_was considered pretty,
gOOd on a trade.
One day, a long, lean, queer, greenlook
s s ecimen of the western count arri-
veil at the dock with a boat-load of hors
es. He inquired for the horsejock,ey.
"Daddy sent me down with some hors-.
es," he said in a half idiotic tone.
"Who's he?"
"What do . you want' for your horses?"
"Daddy 'said you could set your price"
was the responce. •
• 'Let me go down and look at your hors-,
es," said Brown, and accordingly they
were soon at the boat.
Brown examined the horse 4, and nam-..

and that, and the country bumkin made
no objection, although some of the offers
were not more than one-half thereal price

"Daddy said so, and daddy knows."
"Why, got one up in the stable
that would beat him hollow."
"Guess not," said the fellow. ':Let's

Brown smiled.

your boat-load," said Brown, winking to
the crowd, "and these men," selecting two,
"shall hold the stakes."
Brown's Ave thousand was intrusted to
one, and the other went on board the horse
boat. .
' One of the crowd started to remonstrate
with the poor idiotic fellow, but lie only.
"Gully! dad told me he could run some
and daddy ought to loose 'em if be was ,
such a, tamed fool as to tell me that when
he couldn't."
- Brown's - sleek racer was brought down,
and Brown mounted him. The countryman
led out his animal and climed on his back
looking ,as uncouth and awkward as the
horse he proposed to ride..
The word was given, and they started
midst of the laughter of the Crowd. At
first Brown was , ahead, and, it looked as

Brown tried to - say it was all a. joke,
but the fellow would have his money.
"I guess I wont trade to-day," he said,
as he put it in his old rough pocket-book.
I'll go back to daddy."
In vain Brown tried to induce him to

A Strange Presentiment,
The Scranton (Penn.) Republican ° tells
the following sad story of one of the 'vic
tims of the late Pittston disaster :
"William James expired abouo3 o'clock
on the afternoon-of the Tuesday following
the catastrophe, and was the last addedto
the list of those upon whom the death an
gel laid his hand in that awful havoc. He
was a welshman; and had beenin this
country about seven months. On the
morning of the dreadful ' day in question
he had taken his breakfast' and his wife
had made ready his dinner and set the
pail hefore him. For sometime he sat
wrapped in thought, his arms folded, his
eyes fixed vacantly upon the stove and a
deep melancholy apparently • broOding.o- -
ver him. He was aroused born his rever
ie by his Wife telling him that his dinner
was ready, and that he would be. late, as
the bell had lung. He started to'his feet
and gazing upon her for a•moinent with a
look of tenderness and significanee, said
to her, 'lf I should notconle back • alive
would you be in such tPhurt getting me
out ?' The wife- answered 'No,' but re
marked that, `if he was going at all, it
was time he was gone.' • He lifted up his
pail without saw word, and after
kissing his wife, ' four little chil
dren, who were sitting 'playing on the
door-step., When he had got about fifty
yards from his home, he returned again,
awl kissed -his wife' and' children with
with great• fervency. His. wife noticed
that he was the victim 'of gloomy forebod-'
Inge, and as he turned away she - was a
bout to ask hint not to go to work. if he
apprehended any danger. But hope and
courage and the pressing necessities of
their family overcame her intention, and
she let him, go. She stood in the door and
watched him on,his way . to the fatal pit.
When' at a point where he turned out of
her Sight, he paused and east a 'wistful
look toward his home and little ones, and
seeing his wife, waved with his hand a
last' adieu. He parted with his loved
ones forever.

Brief Pacts about Bees
There are three classes of bees in a hive
—the worker; lueen and droan.
Queens are raised by peculiar foodYnd
treatment from eggs that wouldz-other
,wise producewprkers.
The worker is an iindevelei<d' female.
Workers, in the absence fa' queen, some
lo v . ; lay eggs,. Th.
The queelives from two to five years.
The worker from, two to three months
in the virking season, and from six to
• •: •
'll‘he quee - n is perfected in fifteen or six
teen days from the egg, the worker in twen
ty to twenty-one, and the drone in twen
The 'queen usually commences laying
from seven to twelve days after leaving
the cell, and is capable of laying from
2000 to 3000 eggs in a day.
The impregnation of the queen es : a alw ays
takes place outside of the hive, on the
wing, and. generaly the fourth or fifth day
aft4leaving_the eell._Excepting in rare
cases,oneimpregnation_answers_for_life.-_ , _-
_The_dr_on.e_she bns mated.with_di .
' The egg of a impregnated queen pro
duces nothing f: drones; and it is' gener
ally conceded t t impregnation does not
'affect the drone progeny; consequently the
male progeny ea pure Italian 'queen is
pure without regard to the. drone she has
mated with.
• The queen and worker are provided
with stings; lint while the latter will use
it upon any provocation, the former will
only use it at her own rank. The drones
have no stings.
Wax, like fat, is an animal product,
and is secreted by the bees in thin scales
on the under side of the body.. While do.;
ing this. they consume large quantities of
honey—from fifteen to twenty pounds for
every. pound of wax. secreted.
A frightued bee, or one filled with hon
ey, is not disposed to sting.
A good swarm contains about twenty
thousand bees. '
A strong or medium hive, with a good
laying queen, is 'never' seriously troubled
with the moth worm; but a hive without
it.queen or the means- of raising one is
sure to be taken by them.
Bees recognise each other by their scent.
The first one_ or tiVo. weeks of the young
bee's life is stient'insidenthe hive, as nurse
'or wax worker.
The range of a bee's flight for food is
generally within two or three miles; much
greater range is but little , benefit to•them.

vi Education of Business Men.
The times are changed. It is• no lon
ger considered essential that only profes—
sional men, so styled, be admitted to the
privilege of a liberal and thorough edu
cation ; nor on the other hand,', that all
who receive diplo ii as at our college-}
must, as a matter of •course, enter upon
some one of the three professions, in order
to make a better display of their educa
tion. Noway-days, the thing has taken
another face. Now the Agriculturist sees
iii Ir 4 of P - / FS-
e invan y pro
ae value of a trough education,
much forhimself and his own class, as for
any one else. Now learning is ceasing to
be regarded merely as a displa y . 'lt is
taking new shapes, and entering into fresh
and practical combinations; and making
itself felt as a moving power, rather than_
merely an empty exhibition. All this is
healthful and good. It argues well for
our future. It promises great performan
ces for the generations that are yet to
be born. Commerce especially is the
,characteristic - of - our age - and, times: Alt
- men are - engaged - in - trading - someway or
ther-an, d--;rvery-large-proportioirof-our
population devote themselves to it as a
lifelong pursuit. There is an urgent ne
cessity, thsrefore, that such men be prop
erly educated to their occupation: He
who intends bringing the energi, talents,
industry of his whole existence to bear up
on one practical calling, owes it to him
self, by considerations not less of improve
ment than of profit, to qualify.himself well
for the perfect discharge of - every respon
sibility that may belong to his vocation.—
American merchants, as a class; are rap
idly taking rank with the first men on the•
face of the earth. Not by the force of
pretension at all, , but as a consequence of
that spirit of enterprise, liberality, and
comprehensive intelligence, that places
them practically at the head of our popu
lation. For them • a liberal course of
preparation for their profession is quite as
necessary, as it can be for a lawyer, doc
tor, or a clergymaii. But the system of
education would properly, be of a different
character from that hitherto pursued un=
der public institutions. It would have to
•be greatly modified, and made more con
sonant with the exigencies of the times,
the present wants of society, and the broad
and enlarging prospects of the future.—
Humanity needs to be taught quite as
Much as the dead languages. The true
relations of the man of commerce to the
world, are of. as much impoitance as the
significance of the digamma, or the origin
of the dumb old pyramids. We repeat, it
is a good sign in theise times to see our
business men profitinein every Way by
the experiences of the past. Wd are glad
to know that they no longer consent to
receive social or political opinions at sec
ond hand, and from men whopraotically
can never hope to know as laugh as :them
selves. Commerce now is King. Mer-..
chants and Princes, They scud messages
all over the wide globe. They search out
the hidden ways in which civilization - may
follow ; and . send-intelligence into guar
where it would not otherwise penetrate in
the natural course" Of long and dismal
ages. •
