By an arrangement of Providence, as
beautiful as it is benign, the fiuits of the
Earth are ripening during the the whole
Summer saason. From the delightful straw
berry 011 the opening of Spring, to the lus
cious peach of the Fall, there is a constant
succession of delightful aliiueuts; made de
lightful by that Power whose kindness is in
all Ilis works, in order to stimulate us to
tneir highest cultivation, connecting with
their use, al-o, tba ruo-t health-giving influ
ences, and with the rich profuseoess of a
well attended fruitery, it is one of the most
uuaccootable things iu nature that so little
attention is paid, comparatively speaking, t°
this Lraneh of farming.
It is a beautiful fact that,while the warmth
and exposure of the Sun tend to biliousness
and fevers, the free use of fruits and berries
counteract their tendency. Artificial acid*
aie found to promote the Septration of the
bih from Mood with great milduess and cer
tainty. 1 his led to the supposition that the
natural acids, as contained in fruits atid
berries might be as available, and being
more palatable, wouli necessarily be prefer
red- Experiment Ins verified the theory
within a late period medical writers have
suggested the of fresh, ripe, perfect raw
truits, as a reliable remedy in the diurrljcc
as of Summer.
How strongly the appetite yearns for a.
pickle, When nothing else can be relished, is
in the experience of most of us. It is iti the
instinct of uature pointing to a cure. The
want of a natural appetite is the result of
the bile not being separated from the blood
and if uot remedied, fever is inevitable,from
the slightest grades to that of biliom, con
gestive and yellow. "Fruits are cooling,'
is a by-word, the truth of which has forced
ttsslt on the commonest observers. Hot why
they are so, they hud not the time, opportu
nity inclination to inquire into. The rea
son is, the acid of the fruit stimulates the
liver into great activity in separating the
bile from the Lh,od, which is its proper work,
the result of which is, the bowels become
free, the pores of tho skin areopeued. Un
der such circumstances, fever and want of
appetite arc impossible.
To dorive, from the employment of fruits
and berries, all that healthful and uutritiv,.
effect which belongs to their nature, we

Jd. Frails have their best effect when
used iu the early part of tbs day; hence we
do not advise their employment at a latter
hour thau the middle of the afternoon; not
that, if perfect and ripe, they may not be
eaten largely by themselves,within two hours
uf bedtime, with advantage; but if the
sourness or decay should happen to taint
them, or auy other liquor should inadvertent
ly be largely dratrli afterwards, even cold
water, acidity of the whole mass may follow
resulting in a night of distress. So it is
better not to run the risk.
To derive a more decided medical effect,
fruits should be I isgdy eaten soon after ri
sing, iu the morning, and about midway, be
tween breakfast and dinner.
AQ incalcuable amount of sickness and
suffering would be prevented every year, if
the wiiolo class of desserts were swept from
our table during Summer, and fresh, rife,
perfect fruius and berries were substituted,
while the amount of money that would be
saved thereby, at the New York prices of
fruits, would, iu some families, amount to
many dollars, enough to educate an orphan
child, support a eolporteur a whole year, iu>
some regions of our country. — linlVt Jour

It was Charlotte Bronte, I leliev*, who,
when she was urged to write more books,
said she thanked God for the ability to keep
silent when she had nothing to say. I wish
her beautiful art were ntore appreciated,
for we have too much even of & good thing;
but; as brevity is the only excellency of
common places, it scents a pity that the
quantity should be so often wanting. There
is always a right point, beyond which to
proceed is dangerous and ridiculous; timid
ity sometimes comes chert of it, but confi
dence often overleaps it, an d falls on the
other side.

It is said that since I'.-iris has been given
over to the millionaires nothing has been
more common than cashiers taking flight,
bankers stopping payment or speculators
making false calculations. Since money is
plentiful, and nothing but money is talked
of, it is necessary to have a great deal of it,
and to get it, therefore, somehow, is otic of
the necessaries of life. Apropros of money
and deficit*, there is a curious anecdote,
which is circulating just now among the
fiuancial worthies, the truth of winch cannot
be avouched for.
M. 1* , one of the authorities on
'change, on looking over his monthly M—
counts, discovered a deficit of one hundred
thousand francs. Now, his cashier au
old school friend of his, aud an intimate
friend of his family. He could not suspect
him. In despair ho went to the police.—
There one of the detective officers was de
puted to attend to his case.
'llow old is your cashier!' inquired that
'About eight and twenty.'
'Dissipated l '
'No; lives in the house with me; is a
friend tf my wife's and myself.'
'How old is your wife 1 '
'Pretty 1 '
•Very, and devoted to tne.'
•Hum!' replied the deteotive. After a
pause: Won't you go out of towu for a
week? I'll find the money?
M. P obeyed, and the detective be
gan his watch. On the second evening af
ter M. P.'s departure he suddenly towards
eleven o'clock in the night, made his appear
ance in the boudoir of Mote. P . She
was not alone—the cashier waa with her.—
Great was the eonsternation.
'Wow my little augel,'said the detective,
wbcre's the money? juat fork it over.'
'We have only one hundred aud twenty
five thousand ftancs left.'
'Never mind that will do. Now,' con
tinued the detective, having got hold of the
money, 'my dear sir, bid this lady good-lye.
This gentleman is going to* Ilavre, and
thence to America.*
Expostulation was iu vain. The lover
was escorted to the Ilavre, generously giv
en teu thousand francs by the detective,
and is now, for aught I know, winning the
hearts of some of the belles at (Jape May,
as a distinguished foreigner.
M. 1' was astonished and overjoyed
at recovering so large a portion of his mon
ey. His wife is more devoted to him than
ever. He has told her how his cashier de

A Pictur of Illiaois Farming.
The great mnaries o' Kgypt hardly bear
comparison vith the enormous productions
of the West. We readof a single county
in Illinois pducing-over a million of bush
els of gaaioand we now hear frum one in
the State, <'hn is acquainted with what he
writes ant with facts upon which to b:is e
his reasonc, that he estimates the wheat
crop of Illiois this year ut ,35,000,000
bushels, il the corn crop at 290,000,000.
and, sayiwhc writer, I am persuaded the
conclusioi are correct, as almost any one
who shod see these extensive fields would
be of likopiuiou.
The sue writer, in a letter to the New
ark Adniser, gays of one of the fanners
in Marsll county where the wheat averages
from 2 do 25 bushels to the acre:
"He ould like to sell at once, and if arc
will git him 90 cents per bushel, he will
engage) deliver it all at our mill in ten
days. Jut that is the starting price for the
harvesand the immense crop promises that
we cathortly for less moucy. That is all
we cafffer for this weak; the next most
take ij chance, and 75 to 80 cents will
short Jbel be mark. There are fields here
wbicbfor several yens have alternated
wheat and corn, itrtd there is yet no appa
rent diminution in the crop. I know of one
field which has this year the eighteenth con
secutive crop of corn upon if, and I doubt
no' tbis will be as copious as any."

teports that the Atlantic cable was lost at u

Although the unfortunate ac.-iu'ent will
postpone the completion of this great under
taking for a short time, the result of the ex
periments has been to convince all that took
part in it of the entire practicability "f the
enterprise; for with some slight alterations
in the paying out machinery, there appears
to be no great difficulty in laying down the
cable, ami it has been clearly proved that
you can telegraph successfully through twen
ty-five hundred miles of cable, and know
that its submersion at a great depth hod no
perceptible iutiuunce in the electric current.
There is no obstacle to laying it down at
the rate of five miles per hour in the great'
est depth of water on the plateau betweou
Ireland and New FounJlauJ.
Ihe experience now obtained must be of
great value to the Oifmpany, and it is under®
stood that the Directors will decide wheth®
er it is best to have more cable made and
fry again, immediately after the equinoctial
gales are over, or wait until another trial
will take place in October. A Liverpool

five thousand armed foreigners paraded the

and in applauding the spirit of the Germans.
