Of aH the mighty nations
In the East er in the West,
0, this glorious Yankee' nation
- Is the greatest and the best. '
We nave room for all creation, -And
our banner it unfurled ;
Here's a general invitation
To the people of the world.
Then come along, come along, make no delay,
Come frgt every nation, come from every way,
Oar lands they're broad enough, don't bolarm
ed, , .
Uncle Sam is rich enough to give us all a farm.
St Lawrence marks our Northern Line,
- As fast her waters flow;
And tho Rio Grande our Southern bound,
'Way down to Mexico.
From the great Atlantic ocean,
Where tho sun 'gins to go down.
Leap across the Kooky mountains,
Far away to Oregon.
Then come along, Ac-
While the South shall raise the Cotton,
And the West the Corn and Pork,
. New England's Manufactories
Shall do the finer work ;
For the deep flowering water falls
That course along our hills,
Are just the thing for washing sheep
And driving Cotton Mills.
Then come along, Ac.
Our fathers gave us liberty,
. But little did they dream,
The grand results that pour along
ihis'mlghty age of Stsam;
For our mountains, lakes and river
Are all a blaze of fire,
And we send our news by lightnfng
On the telegraphic wire.
Then come along, Ac.
Yes ! we're bound to beat the nations,
For our motto's "Go ahead,
And we'll tell the foreign paupers
That our people are well fed ;
For the nation's must remember
That Uncle Sam's no fool,
.For the people. do the voting,
And the children go.t school.

The priests of the Sun were almost innumer
able, and in all the temples of the empire,
both bv dav and nieht. a certain number of
them were obliged to keeD watch, and dis
charge the 'various f auctions prescribed by
their ritual. They enjoyed the highest .esti
mation, but before entering upon their duties
were subjected to the severest tests of capaci
ty, and obliged to undergo the severest penan
ces. Before all of the great festivals of the
-Sun, they had to fast for long periods, and to
iro through many lustrations. "In some parts
of the empire they were bound to constant cel
ibacy; in other parts they were permitted to
marry, but for long periods were cut off from
any communication with their wives. The
high priest, who was always an Inca of the
"royal line, belonged to the brotherhood of the
priests, and was suljected to the same regi-
men. lie resided in Cuzco, where he made
augeries from the flight of birds, and by con-
nltinor thn entrails of animals, concernintr the
destinies of the Incas and of the empire. In
the great festivals, the reigning Inca himself
officiated as high priest, and was therefore ini
tiated into all the mysteries of religion.
The virgins dedicated to the Sun, were con
idered as spouses 01 uod, ana uvea in con
vents, in the greatest seclusion and retirement
The most celebrated of these establishments
was the Acallahuasi, or House of the Elect, in
Cuzco, where only those went who were dis
tinguished for their lineage or beauty," and

which contained more than a thousand virgins.
None could be admitted here by right, except
girls of the royal blood, who, in their earliest
youth were taken from their parents, and pla
ced under- the care of certain aged matrons,
who had grown grey in the cells of the clois
ter. When sufficiently advanced to' do so
they were obliged to take an oajh of perpetual
seclusion and virginity, to have no relation
with their parent or the world; and so faithful.
lv thev kett their vow. and so rigorously ob-
served their seclusion, that the Emperor him
self could not enter the shadows of their clois
ter a privilege reserved for the Coya or queen
alone. Under direction of the matrons, the
spouses of the Sun learned the sacred duties of
their office. Their occupations wero to spin
and weave the fine cloth for the Royal family,
to make the vestments in which the Inca sacri
ficed to the Sun, and the chiva and little cakes
of maize called zancus for the use dT the court
Their convents were as richly furnished as the
palaces of the Inca, and the Temples of the
Snn, so that nothing should be wanting to in
vest their institutions with dignity ' and influ
The Moon was regarded as sister and spouse
of the Sun, and as such was the objectof great
veneration, although its worship was compar
atively restricted. It was supposed to be the
special protectress of women, and invoked in
all the circumstances connected with materni
ty. Besides the priests of the bun, there were
others of less distinction, who were attached
to the worship of the different classes of deities
which have already been enumerated. Each
huaca had its priest, and throughhim their or
acle was consulted. There were priests throT
whom the proprietors of Comopas consulted
them, and others.who attended at child-births
and at funerals, to drive away evil influences
from the new-born and the dead. There were
others also, wild wanderers, whom the early
Spaniards denounced sweepingly as witches.
One class, called Soeyac, professed to foretell
events, and predicted through the means of
little piles of kernels of maize ; others by
means of the Insects which they fonnd in hou
er, others affected to interpret dreams; in short
in Pert, as everywhere else in the world thou
sands were found designing enough to avail
themselves of the ignorance, and practice on
the superstitions of men. The priests who
i consulted the kuacas, it should be mentioned,
were accustomed ta put themselves in a Btate
of ecstacy by means of a narcotic drink, called
tonca, made of the fruit of a species of stramo
nium, and in this state received their inspira
tions. ' ' '
Oar. Beautiful World.
It has been continually asserted that our
temporary abode is one of sin, trial and tribu
lation, and we "are satisfied it is so, but by
whose fault? By the beings for whose happi
ness the globe was made.
Thre is no doubt that the earth is the most
favored of all the planets, indeed we are rather
nuzzled to reconcile beings similar to our-
r '
selves inhabiting those orbs that lie outside
of Mars or, on the other hand, inside of our
selves, regarding the sun as the centre.
The planet Jupiter for example that is 1,500
times as large as the earth lias its axis perpen
dicular to the plane of its orbit and therefore
there cannot be seasons there as we have them
here, besides it is so far removed from the sun
that (all other things being considered alike)
the. cold must be more than our frames could
bear. ...
Again, taking the planet Mercury, the near
est to the sun. the heat there is equal to that
of iron at a white heat, and therefore totally
unfitted (all other things being alike) to be the
dwelling place of. man as we understand him
Now to think these great orbs were made' for
no purpose but for us to gaze at, is quite ab
surd, as there are many of them undistinguish
able with the naked eye; therefore wc may
naturally conclude they are the habitations of
other intelligences, fitted to their individual
Let us for a moment suppose that we stand
on Uhimborazo Iook at tne mil ana aaie

tain streams as they trickle down until they

ed light look at all these things and must we
not at once see that we have been well cared
for by the great architect.
But, alas! how are we humiliated, when in
the same breath we are obliged to acknowl
edge that, all man's unworthy passions, all his
hypocrisy, all his short comings, and all his
crimes, are the ouly blots on the escutcheon of
the fairest, and most beautiful of all the sphe
riods in space. ,
In a Hurry.
Every-body now-a-days is in a hurry. The
watchword everywhere is "hurry "up." Like
the Spartan boy whose sword was too short to
reach the foe, we take an eager step forward
with everv luDge we make in the great Battle
of life. "
'jllurry up." The milk man stanjliug among
his canes like patience on a monument, rub
bing his hands the while to keep them warm,
sings the single strain "hurry up." The
collector waiting at the door, with a fist full of
bills, begs you in softest tones to "hurry up."
Mrs. Gad dressing for an evening party, and
trembling with the thought of captivating the
foreign count, has no other ejaculation for the
tardy maid than "hurry up." If a girl is to
be kissed, or a pig to be shaved, it is "hurry
up" "time is precious, can't wait' ""
The preacher in his desk, the orator in the
forum, the conductor on the railroad, rclormer
in the market-place, are all crying "hurry up."
If en are born in a hurry, are buried in a hur
ry, and forgotten in a deuce of a hurry.
But after all, "hurry up" is not such a bad
motto. There is neecuthat the old togyism 01
our age should "hurry up." Young America
is pressing hard upon the heels of the lug-
gards, and will cut them down one and all, un
less they "hurry up."
"Hurry up." It is an injunction that we
all might hear with advantage in many rela
tions of life. In our search after truth and
righteousness; in our efforts to promote" the
right and obliterate the wrong; in our abnega
tion of vice and error we might all "hurry up"
without any diminution of our renown or self-
respect. We live but a little while at best,'wear
but a few crowns and gathar but a few tro
phies; and if we cannot, as did Cleopatra, dis
solve the pearls in our drinking cups, or like
Alexander, stand up among men a demi-god,
we can at least while we do linger here in our
sphere "hurry up," in the discharge of our
duties and responsibilities, so that when time
shall trample down the summer rushes that
bind us here, and our feet take hold on the
. . . , A ,
upper strands, we may near mat welcome,
"come up higher." Newark Mercury.
DDr. Johnson once dined with a Scottish
lady who had a hotch for dinner. After the
doctor had tasted it, she asked him if it was
'It is good for hogs, ma'am,' said the doc
'Then pray,' said the lady, let me help you
to a little moro.'
K7"An Englishman travelling in Kilkenny,
came to a ford and hired a boat to take him
across. The water being more agitated than
was agreeable to him, he asked the boatman if
any person ever was lost in the passage.
'Never, replied Pat, 'my brother was drown
ed here last week, but we found him again the
next day.' 1
K7""We cannot help thinking how much
easier an editor's life might be made if his gen
erous patrons could only hear his 'better half
scraping the bottom of the flour barrel! A
man that can write editorials with such ma.
sicsounding in his ears, can easily walk the
telegraph wires and turn somersets in the
branches of a thombush."
Moral Suasion on a Sam.
When a friend of ours, whom we call Agri
cola, was a boy, be lived on a farm in Berk
shire county, the owner of which was troubled
by his dog Wolf. The cur killed his sheep,
knowing perhaps, that his master was consci
entiously opposed to capital punishment, and
he'could devise no means to prevent it.
"I can break him of it,'? said Agricola, "if
you will give me leave."
"Thou art permitted." said the honest far
mer; and we will let Agricola telHhe story in
his own words.
"There was a ram on the farm," said Agri
cola, "as notorious for butting as Wolf was
for sheep killing, and who stood in as much
need of moral suasion as the dog. I shut Wolf
up in tho barn with this old fellow, and the
consequence was, that the dog never looked a
sheep in the face again. The ram broke every
bone in his body, literally. Wonderfully up
lifted was the ram aforesaid, ' by his exploit;
his insolence hecame intolerable ; he was sure
to pitch into whomsoever went nigh him. 'I'll
fix him,' said I; and so I did. I rigged air iron
crow-bar out of a hole in the barn; point fore
most, and hung an old hat on the end of it.
You can't always tell, when you see a hat,
whether there is a head in it or not; how then
should a ram? The ram made at it full butt,
and being a good marksman from long prac
tice, the bar broke in between his horns, and
r.mie out under his tail. This little adnioni
tion effectually cured him of butting."
The Mistakes of the Telegraph.
A few days since, a gentleman telegraphed
to one of the western cities, to gain intelligence
of his daughter, who was ill. In return he re-
ceivca a laconic repiy iroiu er pujuunu,
r 1 . I, I A n Wl
which purported that he was a grandfather.
'Heavens!" he exclaimed, throwing down the
missive as if it had been a hot cinder. "My
r1.inirhr.pr a child!" And striding to Ins clo
set, he grabbed his hat and coat and struck
bee-line for the cars, muttering, A pretty
niiisa itulci-fl rhild rnvdausrhter In sucli.a
nredicament. and unmarried, too! Oh, such a
disgrace!" " In a few hours he was at the sick
c ,
room of his daughter. The physician was sur
prised to see him so soon, but politely told
him "that the girl was getting along finely."
"So it is a eirl. hev." easoed the father. "Of
course," said the doctor, "don't you call your
daughter a girl?" "Ah hum yes but, th-
the child!" "Child!" wondered the doctor,
"what child!" "Why, sir, did you. not send
that dispatch?" pettishly inquired our friend,
as he handed the doctor the dispatch he had
hastily picked up from the floor before he left
home. The doctor read it, and a broad smile
was visible ution hia features. "I sent you a
dispatch, but heaven knows, it contained no
such news as this. The one I sent you intima
ted that your daughter was just through having
a chill." It is added that tho relieved papa
offered to treat, if the doctor would say noth
ing about it.
The Boy and the Brick. A Fable.
A hov hearinsr his father say that it was a
poor rule that did not work both ways, said:
iff:iMir smnlies this rule about his work, I
will test in my play."
So s.dtinrr nn a row of bricks, three or four I
inches apart, he tippod over the first, which,
striking the second, caused it to fall on the
third, which overturned the fourth, and so on
fliwtnnrh thP wholft course. Ulltll all rTie WICKS
lay prostrate.
"Well," said the boy "each brick knocked
ed down his neighbor which stood next to him
T oilv tinned one. I will see if raising ono
will raise all the rest."
w - A 1 -
He looked in vain to see them rise.
"Hero father," said the boy ''tis a poor rule
that won't work both ways. They knock eacn
otner uown, out win uvi uiw uui.u .
"My son,"said tho father, "bricks and man
kind are alike made of clay, active in knocking
each other down, but not disposed to help each
other up."
Father. said the bov, 'does the first. brick
represent or resemble the first Adam?'
y -
The father replied m the following
((men men fall, thev love company: but
when they rise they love to stand alone, like
vnnrft'r hricfr. nnd see others prOstratc and
below them." But, my sou, this is contra
ry to that Heavenly charity which we ought
all to possess, and never let it be so with you.'

No sare. I put my foot out of it,for she say
she would call her sacre big brudder, and keek
me out, begar! I had intention to say mortified
but I could not tink ofde vird, and mortify and
rot is all same as von, in my dictionaire.'
CEP"A darkey, having been to California,
thus speaks of his introduction-to San Francis
co: y
'As soon as day landed in de Tiber, dar
moufs watered to be on de land, and as soon as
dey waded to de shore, dey didn't find no
gold, but dey found such a large' supply of
nuffin to eat, dat dar gums cracked like baked

K7"A temperance paper, extending Its views
in the region of tobacbo exclaims: "What a
splendid figure the apostle Paul would have
made, had he gone about to proclaim the sub
lime truths of Christianity with a quid of to
bacco and a long nine in his mouth!"
Beautifully Said.
We make the following beautiful extract on
the Homestead Law, from a letter recently
written by Judge Dhxahcxtt, of Tennessee
"Secure to each family whose labor may ac
quire it, a little spot of free earth that it can call
its own that will be an asylum in times of ad
versitv. from which the mother and the chil-
dern, old age and infancy, can stil! draw sus
tenance claim protection, through misfortune
mav rob them of all else, and then feel that
they are still free, still entitled to walk on the
green earth, arid breathe the freaair of heaven,
indefience of the nowerand potency of accu
mulated wealth and the domineering of the
nretendinsr and ambitious. The sacredness of
that consecrated spot will make them warriors
in the time of eternal strife. "Those shocks
of corn," said Xenophon, "inspire those who
rafse them with courage to defend them. The
largest of them in the middle of the field to
crown the conqueror."
"Secure a home to every J?uily whose hon
est labor may obtain" one, against the weakness,
vice and misfortunes of the fat her, and you
will rivet the affections of the child in years
of manhood by a stronger bond than any con
sideration that could exist. Hewill remem
ber where he gamboled in his youth, tho stream
in whose limpid waters he has bathed, and the
family alter where he felt a mother's love, and
the green spot within that little homestead
where sleep the loved and the lost ."
Getting on too Fast. A pious slave had a
W icked master. Thi3 master had much confi
dence, however, in the slave's piety. He be
lieved he was a christian. Sometimes the
inasteMvould be serious and thoughtful about
religion. One day he come to the old slavo
with the New Testament in his hand, and
asked if he would explain a passage to him.
The slave was willing to try and asked what it
was. . -
It is here in Romans,' said the master.
'Have you done all it tells you to do in Mar-
thew, Mark. Lnke, and John ?' inquired th
slave seriously, fixing his eyes upon his mas
ter's. . -
'No, I haven't,' said he
'Then you're getting on too fast, master.
Go back to the beginning of the book. Do
all it tells you, till you get to Romans, and
vou will understand it easy enough then, for
the good book says, 'If any man will do my
will, ho will know the doctrine.' "
If any of our readers ever hear any body ar
guing about a hard text in Romans, or some
where else, and worrying to know what it
means, just tell him the story about 'getting
on too fast.'
E00XS. -
There are many books that require no tho't
from those who read them, and for a very sim
ple reason they made no such demand upon
those who wrote them. Those works, there
fore, arc the most valuable, that set our think
ing faculties in the fullest operation. For as
the solar light calls forth all the latent powers
and chrment principles of vegetation contain
ed in the kernel, but which, without such a
stimulus,-would neither have struck nor borne
fruit upward, so it is with the light that is in
tellectual; it calls forth and awakens into en
ergy those latent principles of thought in the
mind of others, which, without this stimulus,
reflection would not have matured, nor exam
ination improved, nor action embodied. Col-
