I'arents and Tueir Children. There
is nothing Letter, nothing safer, nothing so
sure of bringing forth the right fruit in the
end, than truth. Tell your child the truth
Tell him that obedience requires unpaid sac
rifices. Tell him that he need not expeot
that a purse of gold will drop into his hand
the moment he denies himself of a coveted
pleasure. Tell bin. that the path of duty is
often terribly lord, and seldom leads to an
oil well, or a seat in Congress, or to a brown
stone front house. Tell bim that rirtue
sometimes brings thorns, enmities, neglect
But tell him tha't it is virtue, nevertheless ;
the brightest, the noblest, and the best of
gifts, and whatever comes of goodness it is
the one thing desirable, itself above all price.
Mate him feel that obedience is pleasure,
that goodness is delight, that love is altogeth
er lovely, and he will not expect to be paid
for the smallest service and be tempted to
withhold a kindness when he is not sure of
a reward. Parents must cease appealbg to
the appetites and the avarice of their chil
dren if they would have them anything but
selfish and sensual.
As John Morrissey was standing in
the door of "Willard's, at Washington, one
day last week, he was approached and sa
luted by the notorious Beau Hickman in his
politest tone, who remarked: "The Hon
orable'Mr. Morrissey, Member of Congress
from New York, I believe." "The same, at
your service," good naturedly replied Mor
'T am Beau Hickman, Mr. Mor
I am glad to see you." "Ah, Mr.
Hickman," giving him his hand, "what can
I do for you ?" "An introduction fee of $1
from you, if you please, Mr. MorrisRey."
The tax was cheerfully paid, and the two
celebrities conversed for some moments upon
the Btate of the country, the policy of the
Behind the Curtains, How They
go to Bed.
The young girl trips gaily up to her cham
ber, and, with the cautious timidity peculiar
to her sex, first locks the door and arranges
the window curtains, so that by no chance a
passer-by, of a belated nocturnal wanderer
from Ihe pavement can catch a glimpse of
her beautv when en dishabille. This task
completed, she turns on the gas to its full,
and institutes a general search throughout
the apartment that she may be sure it does
not contain a horrible "bugbear," or a "des
perate ruf5an," in big whiskers and crisp
black hair. Carefully, with her delicate lit
tle fingers, she lifts the bed valance, peers
into places where even Tom Thumb could
not squeeze his diminutive corporation, and
takes a cursory peep into the half-emptied
truuk, not forgetting io glance nervously
under the sofa, the space between which aad
the floor is not sufficient to contain the ghost
of Calvin Edson, much less an ordinary rob
ber. Having ascertained that she is really
alone, she leisurely proceeds to divest her
fair form of the silk and linen conventionali
ties of society. First, she relieves her
glossy hair of the pins and combs which en
thrall it, and "does it up" more compactly.
Then off comes the little collar and the lit
tle vapory cloud of lace she calls under-
sleeves, which all the day have been clasped
around her white plump arms, by a couple
of India rubber straps.
Next the love of a spring silk dress is un
fastened in front. The sundry waist strings
and button straps are loosed, and lo ! what
a collapse, like Lowe's big balloon. She
stands like Saturn, the eentre of the rings.
There they lie on the soft carpet, partly cov
ered by the linen underfixings, with no more
expression in them than there is in the floor
beneath the carpet She sits now on the
side of the snowy bed, and begins the unlac
ing of gaiters, and the disrobing of those
fair, swelling limbs of their stockings. The
pretty little foot is carefully perched upon
the knee down dropsthe gaiter, off drops
the elastic, an I her thumb inserted in the
top of her stocking, pushes it down down
over the heel, and the cotton rests beside
tha prunella. So with the other foot, only
involving a change of jiosition. There is a
smile that peeps out behind the Washes of
her sweet face, now, as-standing before the
glass, she places on her head the night-cap,
and with the quick twist of her finger tie3
the bewitching bow. Then the nightgown
is thrown over ihe frilled chemise, conceal
ing the heaving bosom and the shoulders in
the linen fold.. Then the counterpane and
sheets are turned back, and the gas is turn
ed down verr, vcrv low and the little
brm pres.'es the yielding couch, and ihe
angel goes off into the world of dreams.
Now, in the room directly above her, is
the great brute of a brother. He comes
into it, shuts the door with a slam, turns the
key with a snap, growls at the chair which
happens to be in the way, pulls of his boots
and throws them in a corner, jerks his socks
from his feet, drops his pantaloons on the
floor and lets them lie there, gets off his
vest and coat by a quick, vindictive move of
the arms and bodyt unpins and unbuttons
his collar, throws it carelessly at, rather
than on, the table; travels to the window in
his shirt extremity to let down the curtain,
as if he didn't care a cuss whether the en
tire population of the neighborhood beheld
his anatomy or not ; then puts out the light,
and then bounces into bed like a great calf
jumping into a pile of hay curls hiniselfup
his knees nearly touching l.ii nose, lies a
moment or two, turnsn his back, stretches
his limbs out, swears at the tucking in of the
bed-clothes, grunts, gets over on the other
side, and L asleep. ' Then comes in the
snoring and the snorting.
Tilting Hoops. That there cxi?ts an
immense attraction about ladies ankles is
certainly no proof of a want of manliness in
a community where it ia observable. If a
woman's delicacy is shocked by the idea of
too free an exhibition, so far as her own ca.e
is concerned, she has it under entire control,
and there is no lack of horrid examples to
illustrate the enormity of the practice and
to suggest infallible methods for its correc
tion. On the other hand a pretty foot, a
shapely ankle, are indubitably strong attrac
tions in a woman, and if she chooses to show
them she will assuredly never lack admirers to
appreciate the privilege. There is nothing
insstrinskally more immodest in showing the
lower limbs than on showing the upper ones,
and as the latter are usually revealed with
out covering, "and the former are not, the dis
tinction, if any is cn the safe side. Deci

A Long Story.
There was once a certain King who, like
many Eastern Kings, was very fond of hear
ing stories told. To this amusement he gave
up all his time, but yet he was never satis
fied. The exertions of his courtiers were all
in vain. He at last made a proclamation,
that if any man would tell him a storp that
should last forever he would make him his
heir and give him the princess, his daughter,
in marriage, but if any should pretend he
has such a story, but should fail that is, if
the story did como to an end he was to have
his head cut off.
For such a prize as a beautiful princess
and a kingdom, many candidates appeared,
and dreadful long stories some of them told.
Some lasted a week, some a month, some six
months. Foor fellows, they all spun them
out as long as they possibly could ; but all in
vain. Sooner or later they all came to an
end ; one after another the unlucky story
tellers had their heads chopped off. At last

would last - forever, if his majesty would be
pleased to give him a trial. He was warned
of his danger, they told him how many oth
ers had tried and lost their heads, but he
said he was notafraid,andsohe was brought
before the King. He was a man of very
composed and deliberate way of speaking,
and after making all requisite stipulations for
time for his eating, drinking and sleeping,
he thus began :
"O, King! there was once a King wh
was a great tyrant and desiring to increase
his riches, he seized upon the corn in his
kingdom, and put it in an immense granary,
which was built on purpose as high as a
mountain. This he did for several years,
until the granary was quite to the top. He
then stopped doors and windows, and closed
it up fast'on all sides. But the brick-layers
had by accident, let a very small hole near
the top of the granary and there came a
flight of locusts, and tried to get at the corn,
but the hole was so small that only one locust
could pass through at a time. So one locust
went in and carried off cue grain of corn,
and then another locust went in and carried
off another grain of corn, and then another
locust went in and carried off another grain
of corn, and then another locust went in and
carried off another grain of torn."
He had gone on thus from morning till
night (except when he was engaged at his
meals) for about a month, when the king be
gan to be rather tired of the locusts, and in
terrupted the story with "Well, well, we
have heard enough cf the locusts, we will
suppose they have helicd themselves to all
the corn they wanted. Tell us what happen
ed afterwards." To which the story teller
answered deliberately : "If it pleases your
lmjcty, it is impossible to tell what happen
t d afterwards before I tell what has happen
ed firsi." And then he went on again.
"And then another locust went in and
carried off another grain of corn, and then
another locust went ia and carried off anoth
er grain of corn."
The King listened with unconquerable pa
tience six months more, when he was again
interrupted with : "Oh, friend ! I am weary
of your locusts. How soon do you think they
will have done ?" To which the story-teller
made answer: "Oh; King, who can tell !
At the time to which my story has come,the
locusts have cleared a small space, it may be
a cubic foot each way round the inside of the
hole, and the air is still dark with locusts on
all sides. But let the king have patience,
and no doubt we shall come to the end in
time." Thus encouraged, the king listened
on for another full year, the story-teller still
going as before.
"And then another locust went in and car
ried off another grain of corn, and then
another locust went in and carried off anoth
er grain of corn, and then another locust
went in and carried off another grain of corn."
At last the por King could stand it no
longer, and cried out : "Oh, man, that is
enough ; take my daughter ! take my king
dom ! take everything everything, only let
us hear no more of the abominable locusts."
And so the story-teller was married to the
King's daughter, and was declared heir to
the throne, and nobody ever expressed a
wish to hear the rest of the story, for he said
it was impossible to come to the other part
of it till he had (lone with tbe locust3.
Ladies Should Bead Newspapers.
It is a great mistake in female education to
keep a young lady's time and attention de
voted to the fasbionablo literature of the
day. If you would qualify her for conversa
tion, you must give her something to talk
about give her education with this actual
world and its transpiring events. Urge her
to read the newspapers, and become familiar
with the present character and improve
ments of our trade. History is of some im
portance ; but the past world is dead, and
we have nothing to do with it. Our thoughts
and our concerns should be for the present
world, to know what it is, and improve the
condition of it Let her have an intelligent
opinion and be able to sustain a conversation
concerning the mental, moral, political and
religious improvements of our times.

The "Situation" South.
We but utter one cf the most obvious of
truths when we say that it is impossible for
the North and the South to remain perma
nently or for any considerable time in their
present relations to each other. Those re
lations are anomalous and unnatural.- They
must inevitably change soon in one way or
another. How the change is to be wrought
and what is to be its charactor, time will re
veal we cannot Our anticipations are not
There can be no doubt, that the South,
oppressed, humiliated, treacherously wrong
ed, cruelly disappointed in all her rational
hopes and just expectations, treated contu
meliously and in bad faith, and beholding
no reliable indication of future justice on
the part of the North, is yielding gradually
to the natural influences of- strong and out
rageous provocation, ller resentment to
ward the North is continually growing deep
er and more intense. Her feeling in regard
to that section is tending towards antipathy,
and even revenge. Her dislike of those
whom she considers her tyrants and despots
is greater than it was a year ago and far
greater than it wa3 two years ago. Her pa
tience has been extraordinary, but it has not
proved indomitable. Though she is neither
blustering nor noisy, the fire of her nature
is not quenched. Every month she cares
less and less for restoration, and, if it be de
ferred for any long period, she will in all
probability be utterly indisposed to accept it
The majority of the Northern people, if
the Il&dicals constitute the majority, are
blind. Prejudice and passion have covered
with a thick film their sightless orbs. They
cannot discern what the nation's prosperity
and safety require. The country's condition
is at present most wretched. It Is almost
exactly the condition which, at terrible sac
rifices, we fought nearly four years to avert.
We carried on war to prevent the Union
from being divided, but virtually and for
nearly all practical purposes it is divided.
W e arc scarcely better off in respect to Union
now than we should have been, if the Con
federates had won a triumph, established
their independence, and accomplished all
their purposes. If the existing state of af
fairs is to endure, all the sacrifices of the war
were in vain. The ten excluded States are
of no benefit to us. We derive no advan
tage frani our connection orquasi-connection
with them. As a distinct nation, they would,
if a Southern nation and Northern nation
could keep the. peace toward each other, be
as advantageous to us as they are now, if
not far more so. Therefore, by holding them
as they are. we grossly wrong not only them,
but also ourselves. Louisville Journal.

One of the Results of the Late
Those of our citizens who have business
about the river, probably noticed, a few
days ago, on one or the wharf-boats, a poor
woman, with scarcely clothes enough to
cover her nakedness, much less keep out
the chilly winds of winter, accompanied by
two children, also poorly clothed. The wo- "
man, notwithstanding the dilapidated- eaiv
dition of her dress and general appearance,
showed some traces of former beauty, and
the children were really interesting. The
history of this poor woman is an every-day
story. She was the only daughter of weal
thy parents, a few miles from Clarksville,
Tennessee. She married a young man well
off in the world's goods, about one year be
fore the war. All went well, she and'liW
husbaud living happily until the late terri
ble war came on. Her husband entered the
army as the leader of a band of partisan
rangers, and was killed the second year of
the war. His property was all confiscated,
leaving his wife and two babes on the cold
charities of the world. Only one hope was
left the poor creature she would go to her .
father's ; but he. too, had taken an active
part in the rebellion, and his property also
was conhscatcd, and now inhabited by stran
gers. She received the sympathies of the
friends of her youth, bat alas I they were
too poor to assist her. In her troubles, she
recollected of having an uncle in Desmomes y
Iowa, a brother of her father, and determin-
ed to go there and apply to him for aid
She was brought from Clarksville free of
charge, on the deck of a Cincinnati steamer,
and landed at our wharf. On landing her,
the mother and children were sick and hun
gry, having had nothing to eat for twenty
four hours. They were provided with food
and money by a gentleman, and sent on a
through boat to St. I)uis, to take the cars
from there to Desmoines. Thus we find a
woman, once the pet of society, reared in
the lap of luxury, reduced to an obiect cf
poverty, and forced to travel on the deck of
a steamboat This is one of the results of
the late war. Still there are people in our
midst, professing Christianity, who want to
see the Southern people "humbled." What
creater humiliation would you visit on their
heads than force them to go from door to
door begging for bread? Surely, no man is
a Christiau who would wish them greater
evils. Fcansville (Ind.) Courier.
The Early Home of JesuS,
Four miles south of the strong Greek city
of Sephoris, hidden away among gentle hills,
then covered from the base to the crown
with vineyards and fi trees, laid a natural
nest or basin of rich red and white earth,
star-like shape, but a mile in width and won
drously fertile. Along the sacred and chalky
slope of the highest of those hills spread a
small and lovely village, which, in a land
whore every stone seemed to have a story, is
remarkable as having had no public history,
and no distinguished name. No great road
led up to this sunny nook. No traffic came
into it ; no legions marched through it
Trade, war, adventure, pleasure, pouip,pass
ed through it, flowing from weot to east,
from east to wet, along the lioman road,
But the meadows were aglow with wheat
and bai ley. Near the low ground ran a belt
of gardens, fenced with stones, in which my
riads of green figs, red pomegranates and
golden citrons ripened in the summer sun,
iligh up the slopes, which were lined and
planted like the Khine atBingen, hung vin
tages of purple grapes. In the plain, among;
the corn and beneath the mulberry trees and
figs shone daisies, poppies, tulips, lilies and
anemones, endless in their profusion, bril
liant in their dyes.
Low down on the hillside sprang a well of
water, bubbling, plentiful and sweet, and
above this fountain of life, in a long street
straggling from the fountains to the syna
gogue, rose the homesteads of many shep
herds, craftsmen and vinedressers. It was
a lovely and humblo place, of which no ru
ler, no historian of Israel has ever yet taken
notice. No liachael had been met and kiss
ed iuto love at this well ; no ltuth had gath
ered up the sheaves of barley in yon fields ;
no town had been built for otweryaton on
this height ; no camp had been pitched for
battle in that vale. That one who would be
come dearer to the fancies of men than eith
er Buth or liachael, then walked through
these fields, drew water at this spring, pass
ed up and down the lanes of this hamlet, no
seer coiild have surmised. The place was
more than obscure.
The Ai ab may have pitched his black tent
by the well, the magistrate of Sephoris must
have known the village, but the hamlet
was never mentioned by the Jewish
scribes. In the bible, in the Talmud, ia tha
writing of JoseDhus. we search in vain for
