In the bos*in of a valley,
Hides a slender-figured maiden
Called. Luline :
Light of foot as any fairy
'Neath the moon ;
Light of heart as oriole, wukisg
Not for ber the empty homage
* Men bestow,
Nor for her the tides of fashion
Ebb aud flow ;
But the bonnie children greet ber
As she gathers honey-suckles,
Fair as they.
If you knew her, if you knew her,
You would call her of all maidens
Qurenliest Queen ;
Not because the diainoDds glisten
In her hair
They aro only morning dew-drops
But a nobler type of beauty
'Neath the drooping, languid lashes
Of her eyes :
You wonld know her soul no plcbian
From the first ;
Royal oatures loom so grandly,
Should you wander to this valley
You would find her 'mong the roses,
My Luline :
And would dream forever after
Of the grace
Permeating like a sunbeam,
Form and taee,
loach ber not, oh sordid passions,
With your breath ;
D.u-h no storm of early sorrow,
Cold as death.

It is again bright summer in the South,
and the whole land is once more gay with
bloom and redolent with a hundred per
fumes. Unmindful of the strifes or sor
rows of men, nature has, after her custom
ary fashion, put on joyous smiles, and ar
rayed herself in her most gorgeous vest
ments. For weeks past the southern peo
ple have been awaiting the advent of the
season. They were looking for no idle
holiday, no pleasant excursion, no stately
pageant. But with the coming of the
summer now, the people of that section are
summoned to a sad and tender duty. The
reappearance of the flowers brings the op
poitunity for testifying anew to the affec
tionate remembrance in which they hold
the dead who laid down their lives in the
tremendous conflict which has left the
South conquered and undone. And now,
from all places within her borders, we
leain that the people arc daily engaged in
the pious work of decorating afresh the
graves of the fallen. In silent and solemn
procession men, women and little children
stream out from tho towns and the villages
laden with flowers and evergreens and be
take themselves to the cemeteries. Busi
ness is suspended while this loving tribute
is being paid to the dead No tomb is
forgotten. The giave of the stranger who
fell in their defence is piled higher than
that of a brother with floral wreaths ; and
we read that the spots where repose the
bones of soldiers of whom it is recorded
that they were • unknown,' are left hidden
beneath roses and the myrtle, This annu
al custom by which a conquered people
testifies its devotion to the memory of
those who died in a cause which has per
ished, though connected with harrbwing
associations is fruitful of good. It binds
suffering communities together in ties of
closer sympathy, thus enabling them to
hear with their distresses with serener for
titude, and it teaches the young to emulate
the honor and manhood which are so ten
derly commemorated, 'i he South has few
consolations to turn to in her wretched
AN UNLUCKY DIVORCR.— James Si.
Grant, of Bridgeport, recently obtained a
divorce from his wife Julia, and the fact
was announced in the Bridgeport Farmer.
The next day Mrs. Grant informed the
public through the columns of the same
paper that the notice waithe first she had
heard of the matter. Last week Mrs.
Grant received information from England
that a deceased lelative had left her be
tween 80 and $90,0u0, and Mr. Grant is
said to be somewhat dingusted at the turn
which affairs have taken, and ii fruitlessly
lamenting that he obtained that divorce. —
Mrs. Grant will be recollected by our citi
zens as a resident of Hartford for a con
sideaable period, and at especially distin
guished for her cquestrianship, she having
becu awarded premiums at several Stale
, fairs.— Jlartford Post.
WHITE SLAVERY NORTH.
Sewing Girls and Women of New York.
A writer in the Revolution gives the
following sad picture of the life led by sew
ing girls and women in New York. It is
unfortunately too true;
"Of the thirty thousand women now
out of employment in this wilderness of a
city, twenty thousand are said to be sew
ing girls. There arc, first, the shop girls
who sit in long rows up and down the
length of dreary workshops, or piled in
promiscuously in less pretentious estab
lishments. Then there are the dressma
kers, tlie cloakmakers, tailoresses, seam
stresses, and takers in of shop work. A
picture of one of the vast establishments,
where shop girls work, will do for all the
rest. Large, well lighted show rooms at
tentive salesmen, watchful floor walkers,
spry little cash bevs—all these will the ea
ger buyers find in the lower rooms. Down
staiis to see the evening dresses, where
brilliant gas jets flame out to show out
the effects ;up stairs to see the bargains
in cloaks and shawls; wherever they go
the same gonial light and soft radiance is
thrown. The work room is a very differ
ent place to the show rooms, however.—
On the third floor are the fitst work rooms.
They arc large and well lighted, though
but poorly ventilated. The impression up
on one's mind is that a breath of Iresh air
has not entered that close atmosphere for
a long time, and yet the windows are
thrown open every night at sweeping hour.
But one must remember, when sixty hu
man beings, some of them with diseased
lungs and horrid breath, work in these
rooms ten hours per day, that it is almost
impossible to keep these in a proper con
dition. These are the lace workers and
muslin finishers. They prepare those
delicate articles of lingerie which so wins
one's heart from the window or case where
they hang. Infant's robes are made, babe's
baskets are thoroughly prepared here.—
The girls look tired, even at an hour be
fore noon. They bend over shockingly,
and nearly all of them have sore eyes and
sorer hearts, poor things. Six dollars a
week is the average price made here.—
Some make nine. The majoriry only
make five. The fourth floor, one immense
room, running over the whole building
fioin back to front, and from side to side,
is occupied by cloakmakers. There are
four long tables down the centre of the
room, arid smaller ones placed a little to
the side. Here, during the brisk season,
n.nety-five girls work. Now the number
cannot be more than twenty.
" The women working here seemed
more cheerful than those on the lower
floor ; but they, too, are overtaxed and al- ,
low themselves to die by inches just be
cause they fancy they are making an hon
est livelihood. They average more than
the muslin workers. Some of them can
make ten dollars a week, but these are old
hands at the business. On the fifth floor
is a smaller work room than either of the
others. It is devoted to making up plain
underwear for ladies and children. There
are about twenty five or thirty employed
here, pale, wan and sickly; but, strange
enough, more contented with their lot than
those of either of the floors below. I ask
ed one old lady, whose age would surely
entitle her to rest, how she liked to work
here ? She replied, " I thank God that I
can take-care of myself in my old age ! "
She is sevi nty-two years of age, and earns
three dollars a week. God help her. I
conlil not help wondering how in the
woild she managed to reach the fifth story
with her poor rheumatic limbs and feeble
strength. As it divining my thoughts, she
said " To be sure, it's a good ways up, and
I have to come very slowly; but after I
once get here there is rest for me until
night." A little creature of thirteen, but
who looked no more than nine, was bas
ting hems in a corner. She was only
learning she said, and had been there two
weeks, but in a fortnight more she would
be paid for working. Upon asking her
" how much, " she answered with a proud
inflection of voice, " five dollars a month."
The faces of the employers throughout
this establishment generally wore a shock
ed, startled expression as they were for
ever on the rack. A great majority seem
ed to be suffering with lung and throat
diseases. Poorly paid, illy clothed and
fed, they go from one year to another.
Kelly of Pennsylvania, has been elevat
ed among the Radical apostles to the po
sition held by Judas of old. "He carries
the bag, " and is now on a begging tour
through the States to get money for the
coming campaign. Contributing Repub
licans will do well to secure themselves by
demanding a receipt in full from Kelly in
every instance. There are circumstances
attending this demagogue's former posi
tion of treasurer of the Democratic fund
in Philadelphia which inculcate the utmost
watchfulness of his financial course.
The trial of John 11. Surratt has again
been postponed for another term. His
counsel are endeavoring to secure his re
lease on bail. The Radicals are too busy
with Andrew Johnson to think of trying
minor criminals like Surratt and Davis.

IV" Farmers, and Agricultural men generally
are requested to contribute to thie Department, ae it
is from their experience that we hope to gain aome
thing of interest for our readers.
It is well known that feeding horses on
clover hay often makes them cough, but tho
why and wherefore may Pot he so generally
known. From very extensive observation I
have become satisfied that the manner of
feeding hay to horses is the caue. The us
ual custom is to let them draw it through a
rack, thus stripping off the fine dust which
adheres to the stalk, which being drawn
into the lungs in respiration, produces the
cough—that is the rack—and allowing the
animal to take their food in the natural way
I have removed all of mine, and BOW feed
my horses on the barn floor, having a breast
work sufficiently high for them to eat over.
In this way they can be fed on hay without
raising a dust, they get none under their
feet, and the labor of cleaning out the man
gers is saved. Whatever is left is easily
pushed out with a rake into the yard for
the cattle. The dust on the hay will do the
horses no harm if taken into the stomach.—
Since making the improvement above men
tioned in my feeding apparatus, I am not
troubled with coughing horses. There ia
no patent on my invention ; my brethren can
use it freely.
CPRE FOR HOG CHOLERA.—I write to send
a core for the hog cholera that 1 know to bo
good, and a certain care, eo far as I haTo
tried it. Not to trespass on jour space, I
will give it in a few words. When a hog is
first found to have the cholera, throw it on
its back ; put a piece of tar, about the size of
a hickory nut, on the end of a stick ; put it
down its throat ; be sure 'us swallowed. I
have tried it on a good many and cured every
one. One in particular was so far. gone as to
have lost one of his legs. I lost a great many
before this was tried. I clipped their ears
and tail, but think that should he left off, as
it oniy weakens them. All hogs that look
droopy are benefited by tar. Some recom
mend rolling corn in tar, but I don't thiDk
the hog swallows enough in that way to be
RECIPE,FOR WHITEWASH.—WE. FIND the
fallowing recipe for making what is claimed
to be superior whitewash, in our exchanges.
This whitewash ts composed of Paris white
and white transparent glue. The proportions
are sixteen pounds of the white to a half a
pound of the glue. The latter ta covered with
cold water at night,and in the morning care
fully heated, without scorching, until dissolv
ed. The Paris white is stirred in with hot
water enough to give the proper milky con
sistency for applying to the walls, and the
dissolved glue is then added and thoroughly
mixed. Tt is applied with a brush in the us
ual way and it the walls are not very dirty,
one coat will prove sufficient.
LOOK OUT FOR CURRANT WORMS It will
soon be time to look out for the currant
worm, which for two or three years iiast
have done so much injury. White powdered
hellebore sprinkled upon the under side of
the leaves, is an effectual remedy. We have
tried this aud find it a perfect protection.—
The drug is not in the least injurious to the
berries, and by applying it whenever the
worms make their appearance, vou may save
your fruit and bushes.
SWEET POTATOES— If, as is frequently the
case, the field culture of sweet potatoes con
stitutes one of the minor operations of the
farm, there will be no necessity for planting
this valuable root in the garden. On tbe
other hand, if they are not so grown, no gar
den should be without its bed of sweet pota
toes. A deep sandy loam is best adapted to
their vigorous growth. The exposure of the
bed sho'J be well to the south, and the hills
or drills should be well manured.
