The Three Beggars.
LINES FOR Tan TIBBS.
A traveler passed athwart my way,
Bending with age, wrinkled and gray;
His looks were careworn and forlorn,
And his coat was tattered all and torn.
Thus in misfortlines chilling blast,
His tide of life Seemed ebbing fast;
It seemed:to him a wofal task,
Andhis.p . sle cheek blushed, an aims to ask.
On thilame pathway, there was seen
A perisonage of different mien ;
Oniiin whom life's crimsoned tide
'Flowed, in manhood's strength and pride.
As pompously he onward aped,
He scorned the man who begged for bread;
But now, with me, his conduct note,
Se begs of yonder man his vote.
With, craving , spirit he will go
To those who office•oan bestow ;
And'even•tiurow the truth away,
Or principle, that win he,may.
Now is it not a less disgrace
To beg:for bread, than beg for place;
And must our offices be filled
By those in begging tactics drilled;
IX as of' Cid, lave we not now
Some Cincinnatus at his plow,
Who, herd at toil, is well content
That undisturbed his days be spent;
And-yet.who will prove truly great,
If called to steer the ship of State.
Bat list t there is one beggar more ;
I hear him, through his closed door,
And one whose strong desires are known
By'his deep, supplicating tone.
He asks not man for bread or place,
Buti asks that, through God's boundless grace,
His many sibs may be forgiven,
And he a passport have to bea'ven.
'Tis he who does the Lord believe,
Who says, " Ask and ye shall receive,"
Or, as 'tis pressed up,pn his mind
In these sweet words, "Seek ye and find,".
From him shall sins be washed away,
And, servant like, at close of day
From all, his labors he shall rest,
And the morn rise with the blest,
On everlasting joys to feast,
Unto his. God a king and, priest.
0 ye who beg„beg of the 'Lord,
And as directed in his Word ;
And seek ye not for earthirfame,
But in the Lamb's book fora name.

Shortly after the ,Dierpitibit in 'the .qtirch of
Scotland, the feelings f the landed gent 7
:Highlands and in the Isles of Scotland, were die-*
played in opposition to the Free Dlinrch minis
tern to an extent that is now scarcely credible.
Sites for churches were refused. Dwellings for
the miaistera were refused, and the tenantry
were threatened if they were known to harbor in
their houses, the pastors who broke to them the
bread of _life. In this emergency, a small ves
sel was procured for the Free Church minister of
Small Isles, the Rev. Mr. Swanson, who sailed
about from one district to another, and thus kept
alive the flame of devotion among his scattered
people. The first part of this volume is the nar
rative of a cruise among the Hebrides in the Free
Church Yacht, " The Betsey." Like all' the pro
ductions of Mr. Miller, it is characterized by his
extraordinary pictorial power. In one respect,
Geology is one of the -driest of the Sciences, yet
hire as well as in the " Old Red," and in the
"Footprints" he brings to his aid such beauty of
description, snob .fertility of illustration, such
gushes of poetry, and over all, such enthusiasm,
that even the unscientific reader is carried away
in transport. Without committing ourselves to
all the theories of the lamented author, we shall
hail the appearance of the successive volumes of
this remarkable series.

WASHINGTON, Ohio, May, 1858
We parted with our readers, last week, on
our arrival at New York. The confusion
both on board . and on.ehore as we neared the
landing in that notable city, was truly great,
hut to me very amusing. The Spaniards
were all in commotion, the tongue of each
rattled like the haminer of an alarm bell.

issued his many commands in a stentorian
voice • the - sailors sung in chorus their he-no

over the deck, and examined by the t.fficials

As our ship touched the pier, a number of
these gentry attempted. to .climb on deck ;
but the sailors'repelled 'them by throwing
down buckets of water. They then `tied
their cards to the point of their whiplashes
and - held them out toward us similar to
fishermen. These fellows are • a very, great
nuisance; and the authorities of our large
cities should pass some law to protect travel
ers from such annoyances.
The scene from Sandy Hook up to the
city, is, indeed,, very beautiful. There is
no other place in our country, I suppose,
where so many royal residenees, fine gardens,
and lovely lawns can be seen, as here, on
both Staten and Long, Island. The fortifi

God, yet they are all circumscribed in the
range of their desolating visitations. 'tut this

In the afternoon we sauntered out to see the
city. A long walk up Broadway made us
feel that New York is always new. At least
if looked almost as much so to me as if I had
never seen it before. What a noise I What
a rush and confusion I What magnificent
houses, well paved streets and shady parks!
What beautiful carriages and well dressed
.people. This is certainly the great city of
this Western continent. I took a look at
old scenes in Fifth Avenue; spent an hour
in the nicely furnished rooms of the Young
Men's Christian Association;was curious
enough to visit "No. 31 Bod Street," of
Burdell notoriety; was at the Bible House ;
walked down , the Bowery to Grand, and then
to Broadway, where I saw a sign announcing,
"Prayer-meeting in this room every day
from 6to7P. M. Come in—all are net
come." So I dropped in, and saw a large
room partly filled with people. The services
were about commencing. He who lead, ap
peared as awkward as he was darned. A
verse , or two were sung, and then a prayer;
after which remarks were made by a very
diirrthiiiirwhont tool % ikrbe 1174'student.
Again we had singing. and an excellent
prayer. Remarks were then called for. For
a time no one arose. At last a stranger got
up and spoke of the inscription " To ,the
Unknown God," seen by Paul in Athens,
and compared' it "with that en the, banner
over the door at which we'all had entered.
He was listened to with good attention ;.and
when-he closed, a woman near him called
out,M,Ood,bless. the stranger." We went
from that room refreshed, although disap.

The next day we left for Washington City.
A fine ride of a few hours through the

us to Philadelphia. Our stay here was

roomed at "Millard's'," of Wash
ington. For six days we roamed about this
city, seeing sights, hearing wonders, and mak:
bag acquaintances, and I hope frisias also.
The Hon. W. 'Lawrence, of the seventeenth
diatrict of Ohio, was our daily companion,
and to him I am much indebted for the
rare privilege Of going where, s and of hear
ing.what, I did. He took me into the Seri
ate chamber; then into the grand Hall of
the House of Representatives, where' I
lounged about a whole day on - the soft seats,
learriing the art of law-making. The ma
ehinery is quite complicated, more so I
thought than necessary, and when *motion
on some matters it is awfully 'noisy, a cir.
oumstanoe truly annoying to an unsophisti
cated countryman like myself. But there
are a, great many wise, upright, worthy, men
here 'tfho are always at their posts striving
to do their duty both to their constituents
and 'their country. Among these btu happy
to rank my worthy friend Mr. L. And what
ever others may say or think of this qingresa,
it has the reputation in this city of being one
of the most temperate and respectable that
ever sat in this Capitol ; although it has
been disgraced by some foolish and beim
siderite members who, in the heat of debate,
allowed their passions to get the better of
their prudence. We, ministers, know how
easily this might take place among two hun
dred and fifty politicians, thrown together,
from all parts of the land, representing dif
ferent and even opposite interests, when
even we, the professed arnbassadora of the
Prince of: Peace, sometimes in our Church
courts, allow our feelings to glow with a
binning, zeal rather above that raised by an
ardent piety. The evils of Cengress are

tion, but not a whit more so than it ought
to be, nor than the United States are able
to 'hive it be. No parsimony 'uppears so
mean as' that of a nation, unleis it be that of
a rich congregation, and.this'ii so . perfectly
contemptible as to horrify me to think of it.
The heating, ventilating, and illuminating
fixtures of the Capitol, are' very complicated
and costly, but melt arrangements are truly
admirable and highly conduciVe to safety,
health, convenience, and comfort. These,
with' the mammoth marble struoture that con
tams them, I have neither time nor power to
describe. Suffice it to say that all, as'well
as - , the Interior Department, (commonly
called-the Patent Office,) and the Post Office,
and the Treasury buildings, and the White
House and all the grounds around, are on a
scale of elegance that strikes the mind of
every beholder at first with wonder, and
gives him enlarged views of the powers of a
nation. On Saturday evening, I beard the
Marine Band play in the Capitol grounds„
and saw thousands of well-behaved and well,
dressed men, women and children, congre
gated in the green. It was truly most
delightful'seene. Such . meetings certainly

all -who read this, that
these speeches have been preparing for six
or eight months, during which time every
minister, has not less than , thirty or forty,
sermons to prepare. Still Ido think, our
pulpits might be more animated if we would
lay aside the manuscript and the formalities
of the schools.
I heard three sermons on the Sabbath, all
from Dr. J. A. Alexander, of Princeton,
and I would have been glad to have heard
three more from the same source on the same
day. 0, such preaching'? Profound, clear,
rich, instructive. And such prayers—every
word appropriate, coming from a heart glow
ing with an 'unction from heaen. I noticed
among the audience in the` evening; Gen
Cass, Gov. Wickliff, of Kentucky, and Pres
ident, Buchanan. They all paid the most

slept that I could see. This pleased me:
If piety does not, politeness' ought to keep
people awake during Divine service on the
Sabbath. Sleeping in church is a miserably
vulgar habit, and= should at once be aban
doned. Reader, do you sleep in church?
If you do, shame !
But •I wont scold, but go on to say that on
Monday, the President spoke in terms of
the highest commendation of the sermon he
heard the evening before, and of the won
derful concentration of thought evinced by
the speaker. We inquired if he were per
.sonally acquainted with Dr. A. 4,e said not
.personally, but well by

"Why not ?" said I. "Because," said he, ,
" the clergy are all so popular with the
ladies." " And so are Presidents," said- 1,
" but one of them has in some way managed
to avoid the yoke." At this he laughed and
said something about Paul's celibacy.
From the mansion we went again to the
Capitol. The Senate was in session. We
went into the gallery and got a good view
of the Vice President. He is a goodlook
ing, wide-awake, accomplished gentleman—
one whose words and manners are dignified
and prepossessing. We saw no one in this
body who presents a finer appearance than
Hon. Mr. Seward, of New York, and next
to him is- Mr. Crittenden, of Kentucky. To
Mr. Douglas, we were introduced in the Hall
of Representatives; 'and"we made free to
ask him whether he was the good - or bad
Douglas, of whom so much was said in the
public prints, intimating that surely there
must;be two of them. " I'm neither," said
he; , " for if I was the bad one, I- ought to
be hung, and if the good one, I am too good
for a politician ' I am simply S.,A. Douglas,
of Illinois, andhave in me a mixture of both
good and bad." He spoke this in the most
pleasant mannerpossible, with a countenance
indicating much good humor Be is very
courteous, 'full of animation, moves quickly,
is quite social, and never seems fearful of low

whoever approaches- him.

The Polite Boy.
The other day we were riding in &crowd
ed car. At one of the stations an old gen
tleman entered, and was lookingaround him
for a seat, ,when a lad ten or twelve years of
age, rose up, and said, " Take my seat, sir."
The offer was accepted, and the infirm old
Man sat down. " Why did you give Me
your seat?" he inquired of the boy. " Be--
-cause you are old, air, and-I am a boy," was
the quick reply. The passengers were very
much pleased and gratified. For my part,
I wanted to seize hold of the little fellow
and press him to my bosom. It was a re
spect forage, which is, always praiseworthy.
When a boy or girl does not reverence the
aged, it is a sure sign "that' they are evil in
more respects than one. We once saw a lad
ran after a lame old man in the street, and
hoot after him ; but he was known as one
of the worst lads in the village. He would
swear, disobey his parents, rob orchards, and
do other things equally bad. We feel quite
sure that the polite boy in the cars never
uses wicked or vulgar wordi. His parents
probably can trust him.—Child's Paper.
A writer in Entery's Journal of Agricul
ture on the subject of making butter, says,
that in all various changes through which
milk passes before it becomes butter, utter
cleanliness is indispensable, and this cannot
be too often held up to view. Next, re
member, milk and cream want air, and pure
sweet air at that; no one should cover a
cream pan or put cream in a large, high
stone jar or crock, if they intend making
first quality butter; and now, ,if I can, I
will put thinga in order.
The Milking,.—This should be done with
clean hands and short finger nails. • The
same cows should be milked by the same
hands as much- as possible, and as quick;
much conversation or singing should not be
tolerated during milking time; the times of
milking should be twelve hours apart, as
near as may be.
Milk should be strained, as soon as it can
be brought in buttery or cellar, and I am
of opinion, that if the milk of several cows
is a little mixed, it will produce butter of a
more uniform color ,'six or ten quart pans
made_ of tin are in common use; glass
would be better. Milk should not sour
under thirty-six hours, if in a right tem
perature:; if it does, your milk pans have
not been well scalded and cleaned. When
your cream is taken from the milk,' let a
little milk pass along with it in the cream
pan. Milk should not sour, and cream
should, not be of the consistency of sole
The. Ohurning —This should be done
every day in a dairy where there are eight
cows or more. At a:temperature of sixty
two degrese,' butter 'will `come (if the cows
have salt regularly,) in about thirty minutes.
"'would not have it come sooner if I could;
churns that propose to bring butter in five
minutes area humbug.
Washing. Butter.—lt has been and per
haps still is thought an open question,
whether it ,is necessary or even proper to
wash butter, but I deny it. It is a settled
point, a fixed fact, that butter should be
washed if it is intended to be packed. All
through the dairy counties of New York,
washing is thought indispensable to make a
good article for packing A late Weekly
Tribune contains a letter from the Hon .A.
B. Dickinson, recommending cool soft water
to wash your butter, "without which, no
man or woman can get the milk out with,-
out injuring the grain ;" " soft water is= as
necessary to wash butter, as fine linen "
Immediately after washing, place the butter
in a large wooden bowl, spread it well out,
and add about an ounce of salt to the
pound. " Liverpool Blown" or " Turk's
Island" is best; if New York salt is used,
the " solar salt" is preferable; the other
contains lime, which injures butter; let it
stand twelve hours, work over so as to thor
oughly mix the salt, pour off what brine
will come out, notice whether it is entirely
free from, milk, and pack immediately,
taking, care to well cover your firkin. A
churning of butter which does not corres
pond from heat or other cause in color or
flavor with what has been packed should be
sold or used in the family. The family sup
ply should never be packed, -but kept by
itself. The sooner a firkin is filled, the
better; then 'place over the butter a clean
damp linen, and salt an inch or so thick and
Preparing Firkins-- Generally hard wood
firkins are preferred; take out the head and
fill with soft water (rain -water, if handy,)
and allow it to stand forty-eight hours, then
take a scrubbing brush and scour well, next
scald in hot water, and when well cooled it
will be ready to receive your butter. Al

About the Weather
A weather prophet, writing to an , agrical•
turat paper, says " When you wish to know
what the weather is to he, go out and select
the smallest cloud you oan see ; keep your
eye upon it, and if it decreases or disap
appears, it shows state of air which is sure
to be' followed by fine `weather; but if it
increase's in size, take your great coat with
you, for falling weather will not be fir off.
The reason is this: when the air is becoming
charged with electricity, you will see every
cloud attracting the lesser ones to it, until
it gathers into a shower; and, on the , con
trary, when the fluid is passing off, or
diffusing itself, then - a large cloud will be
seen breaking to pieces and dissolving."
Anthracite Ashes, long considered worth
less to 'vegetation, are endued with proper
ties rendering them somewhat valuable as
manure. Those who red . & in the, vicinity
of cities and other places where this coal is
used as fuel, and where the ashes , can be
obtained in large quantities and at small
cost, will find this article's matter' of import

Prof. Henry, of the Smithsonian Institu
tion, has collected facts respecting the inte
rior of the United States, which will com
mand the attention of scientific men and
Statesmen. The induction from these facts
is, that the entire region of the United
States West of the 98° of West longitude,
(say the Western boundry of Minnesota)
with the exception of a small portion of West
ern Texas, and the narrow border along tte
Pacific (including Califoinia), is a sterile
waste of comparatively little value, and
which can never be available to the agricul
turalist. The importance of this statement
will be more fully comprehended when it is
considered that the line of Prof. Henry,
which extends Southward from Lake Win
nipeg to the Mexican Gulf, will divide the
surface of the United States into nearly two
The intense heat. and extreme dryness of
this region, which will make the Great
American Plains a barren waste forever, is
caused, to a large extent, according to Prof.
Henry's theory, by the fact that the return
ing Trade Winds, sweeping over the eleva
ted masses of the Rocky Mountains, are
-deprived of their moisture; in other words,
the heated air which ascends at the equator,
saturated with moisture it has extracted in
its passage over the ocean, after depositing
a portion of its vapor in the tropics at the
rainy season, is further desiccated by, the
r dges and mountains which it meets, tbe
vapor being condensed on the windward
de by the cold due to the increased verti
cal height, and it finally passes over and
strikes the plains as dry as a sponge which
has been thoroughly squeezed. Without
moisture there can be no fertility, no-agri
culture; and .a great portion of this wilder
ness, according to Prof. Henry, is as irre
deemably barren, for the purposes of agri
culture, as the deserts of Africa. If this
theory be true, it will- greatly modify the
opinions which have been entertained by
politicians and Statesmen of the future des
tiny of the " Great West " Piof. Henry
stated these facts to us a few days since,
which we confess, greatly modified our
ideas of the vast 'extent of Territory which
we had always supposed was yet to be filled
with human habitations, like the already
productive prairie States bordering the
The process now gefierally practised in
the manufacture of gas, consists in "placing
from one to three five and even twelve re
torts in an oven h ' eated by a fire fed with a
portion of the coke left from the distillation
of coal. These retorts are long cast iron or
clay tubes, open at one end, and closed by
means of a plate listed with soft clay. It is
furnished with a pipe, through which the
gas, as it is generated, Oases off to the con
densers, purifiers, and gas-holders. The re
torts are kept at a cherry red heat; a Charge
of coal is shoveled in, and the retort dosed.
Tim gas and vapors contained in the coal,
soon begin to be evolved, and continue to
distil until nothing but dry coke remains in
the retorts The richest gas is generated_in
`the first three hattre, and it requires from
four to'eight hours to exhaust the coal. In
the best managed, gas works the charges are
renewed every four hours, the quantity and
quality of gas varying with almost every
kind of coal used. Cannel coal gives the
richest gas, and in large qui.ntities; but as.
it leaves only a little coke, it is not econom
ical to use it alone. A mixture of cannel
with coking coal, in certain'portions, affords
the, best results; but the redaction of the
quantity of cannel coal below a certain
standard, is soon perceivable, by a diminu
tion in the illuminating power of the gas
flame, and an increase of cost to the con
sumer. On an average, a ton of, mixed'
good gas coals produces eight or ten thou
sand cubic feet of gas, or from four to five
feet per pound, twelve hundred pounds of
coke, two hundred to three hundred pounds
of tar, and the same quantity of anamoniaeal
water. One pound of rosin gives, in the
old rosin apparatus, from six to nine feet - of
`gas,- the illuminating power of which is
greater than that of ordinary coal gas as five
to three. North American.
