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 the privilgireir dodging ortaking *peon - sequence OM; they liked.

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 AY OLDFincE.—A fence is still stand ing in Gerniannown, Penn., which was in its present location darim. , the days of the revolution, and still/bear;the marks upon it of the battleof Germantown.

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-.. ed the price he would give for this one, and that, and the country bumkin made no objection, although some of the offers were not more than one-half thereal price - of - the - Imimak - 7 One - of - the -bystanders gently-suggestedio the - countryman - that -he-was-beiniaeatedrhtit-be-returned. 9,2oaddy said Brown would set the price himself," and so Brown had it all his own way. At last they come to another animal which did not look much superior to the rest. "I must have more fur that anermel," said the fellow. Daddy says he can run some." "Run!" said Brown, "that nag cant run worth a cent." "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 .try 'em. "I'll bet the whole boat load of horses on 'im." Brown smiled. stake five thousand dollars against 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. responded? "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 •" (nigh tile poor fellow was to be badly beaten, nen suddenly his horse plunged forward and the horse jockey was left far behind. Such going had not been seen in those parts for a long time,' and poor _ Brown w crestfallen, as is, the cheers of 't h e bystanders - fell on his ears. "I'll take the snpndulix," said the coun tryman, riding up. "Dad. was right.— The anermal cam git round a little." 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 trade but he pushed off his boat; resolu tely saying, "I'd better go back, and tell daddy!" Brown Was completely ' "sold" fOr he knew•at once that the green countryman was a leetle shrewderthan peopleimagined him, • and had just t onae there purposely to win his money. Next time he did not ridicule a horse that "daddy" said "could run-some." 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. Daddy's say.

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. drones. 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 ty-four. 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 . diately. ' 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. "Luck' —What is it ?

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. • New Oxford, :Pa.
