'There are three , Elebrew words which
are rendered into the English term Mine,
they are Tirosh, Yain and Shockar.
Our object in this article is to show
that the term, Tirosh, rendered .wine,
does not mean a liquid but the fruit of
the vine. The term occurs, according to
Rev. Wm. Ritchie, thirty-eight times in
the Scriptures, and is invariably spoken
of as a blessing, not a syllable is uttered
against its use, iu the whole Book of
God, and who does not know that the
fruit of the vine is a blessing? and if
Tirostils the fruit of the vine it must be
a solid and, not a liquid. Ist. The
Phrase, " corn and wine and oil " occurs
in Scriptures quite frequently, the He
brPw term for corn is Dagan, and com
,prehends a large variety of the produce
of the tield, such as wheat, rye, barley,
'l). , ans,•cucumbers, 'ie., nil of which" are
Yitshar, the Hebrew term rendered
"oil," signifies orchard finite, eornpre
hen,ding figs, olives, pomegranates, &c.,
all of, these .are solids. May we then
not also infer that Tirosh rendered
wine is the name of solids? Particular
ly when we find it associated with Du
gan thirty times, and with Yitshar twen
ty-one times, while it occurs only six
times inconnected with either of these
terms. Itameins to us almost impossi
ble to account for this almost uniform
association of Tirosh with each of the
other terms, unless, upon the supposi
tion that it agrees in character with
.them and hence denotes's solid.
But besides this we never find the
term associated with objects or acts,
which would indicate it to be a liquid, it
never is spoken of in connection with
bottles, or cops, •or pots. It, is never
spoken of as poured out or used as a
fluid. We might refer to numerous
passages to indicate this, but we shall
not have the space to do so. We shall
refer yon to but a few, and would ad
. vise all to secure Ray. Wm. Ritohies'
valuable hook on "Scriptural tAstimou,"
from which we have gathered these fucte.
Ist- in Dent, XL-14, it is spoken of as
gathered "Thou shalt gather in thy corn

A. FEW WORDS ON SQUEEZING.— WhiI e
we are growing very sensible indeed in
the matter of dress, as far as boots, Bal
moral skirts, warm stockings and high
necks, we are degenerating in some oth
er matters quite as important. The
,corset is now a necessary part of a wom
an's wardrobe ; also 1 %hen a woman
does begin to wear corsets, she will
wear them to small, and will tug at the
laces until her breath becomes short,
and she feels it necessary to refrain from
anything like a comfortable meal.
We say nothing against a well-shaped
corset worn loose, but there lies the
difficulty.—A loose corset injures the
appearance of the figure, instead of im
proving it, and people wear corsets that
they may have small waists. All we can
say is:don't squeeze, whatever you do ;
you may .have small waists, but you are
exposing yourself to a dozen misfortunes
which are as bad as a large waist. First
you'l surely have dyspepsia, and grow
yellow end cross and unhappy ; secondly,
your bands will grow red ; thirdly, your
nose ; fourthly, you will be unable to
walk a mile at once ; fifthly dinner will
be. a misery ; sixthly, your shoulder
blades will increase in size and altitude;
seventhly, your eyes wilLgrow . -weak;
sightly, you will break down at thirty or
there-about, and be a sickly old woman
from that time forth. If these-truths do
not frighten women from tight corsets,
perhaps the information that gentlemen
generally do not admire what dress-ma
kers call-a "pretty figure" . as mach est a
natural one, may have some influence. .
An enterprising` keeper of a con-
factjapary, in Waterbury,. coon., has
taught a parrot , to say "pretty creature"
to each person . that enters the store.
The result is that the store is crowded

Stewart and Astor.
A. T. Stewart is not. what 18 .called a
liberal man. - ' He seldotn: looks at a sub
•cription paper. He has little sympathy
with vagrancy. Men and women who
seek his , presence seldom gain much by
an interview, if money is the object. In
deed it is very difficult to gain access to
him in any way. He is intensely devo
ted to bus ness, and works more hours,
probably, than any merchant in New-
York. lie controls his own affairs with
despotic sway. His partners have no
enontrol over the business, but are in
tereeted merely is the profits. He buys
and sells as he pleases, without cousult
fug any one. In his down town 'store
he has a small office where he spends his
time from early business hours till dark.

response is satisfactory he is allowed to

the ordeal once will do it a second time
without a cause. But, on great occas

princely. He proposes now to devote
millions to build houses for the poor.
If the city refuges to give the site, he

tor is always accessible. His rooms are
on Prince street, a door or two from
Broadway. They are the same that were
occupied by his father. He has e: fi out
and a back office where the business of
his great estate is carried on. The door
is wide open between the two offices. A
person asking for Mr. Astor, is directed
to the rear room at once. At a common
desk, crowded with papers!, site a Ger
man-looking man, about seventy, heavi
ly moulded, tall and stout. His eyes
which are small with an expression bor
baring on stupidity, are fastened on the
visitor, and Mr. Astor awaits his utter
ances. He wastes no words. His ans
wers are yes, or no, with an air that ad
mits of no debate. All the day long,
from ten to five, Mr. Astor sits in 'his
office and sees all comers. He is man
ter of his business. Lie knows the rent

ToHaire on Marriage.
Vohive said, "'1 be more married
men Yon'have, 'the fewer crimes there!
will be. Marriages render a man more'
virtuous and more wise. A man un
married is but half able to make things
right"; and it . cannot be expected that
in this imperfect state he can keep the
straight path of rectitude any more than
a boat with one oar, or a bird with one
wing, can keep a
,straight course. In
nine cases out of ten where married men
become drtinkards, or where they com
mit crimes against the peace of the
community, the foundation of these acts
was laid while in the single state, or
where the wife is, as is sometimes the
case, an unsuitable match. Marriaze
changes the current of a - rnan's feelings
and gives him a centre for his thoughts,
his affections and his acts. Here is a
home for the entire man, and the inter
est of his better half keeps hini from
erratic courses, and from falling into
thousand temtations to which he would
otherwise be exposed. Therefdre the
friend ,to marriage is the friend o—f-socie
ty and' of his country."
SELECTIONS POP. A NEWSPAPER.—An ex
change says : "Most people think that

is the easiest part of the business. - How
greatan error. To look over fifty ex
change papers, from, which to select
enough for one, is no easy task, especial
ly when it is not what shall be selected.
Every subscriber takes the paper for his
benefit; and if there is nothing in it that
suits him,. it must be stopped—it is good
for ,nothing. Just as many subscribers
as-an editor may have, so, many tastes he
has to, consult. One wants anecdotes,
fun and frolic, and the next one wonders
why a man of good sense will put such
staff in his newspaper. Next comes
something argumentative, and"the editor
is a dull fool. Something spicy comes
out, and he is'a blackguard. And so
between them all, you see, the poor fel
low gets rbughly handled, They do not
think that what does not please them
pleases the next man ;=but they insist
that if the paper does not please theM it
is worth nothine." •'

1.0 PArdon's Digest , of the Laws
of Pennsylvania, a vagrant is defined as
a " person going from door to door, or
placing themselves in streets, highways
or other roads, to 'beg or gather alms,
and all , other persona wandering about
or begging." Section 2d of the. vagrant
law declares that" It shall and May be
lawful for any justice of the peace of the:
county where such idle and disorderly
persons shall be found, to commit such
offenders (being thereof legallY convict
ed before him, on his own View, or by
the confession of such offenders; or-by
the oath,or affirmation, of one or r more
creditable witness or, witnesses) to the
workhouse of said county, if such there
be, otherwise-to-the common jail of the
county, there to be kept at hard labor. -
by the 'keeper of such work-house or-jail'
for any time not exceeding one month."
The 3d section makes it the duty olthe
constables to carry oat , the provisions of
the act. The , 14,w is plain and < clear,
and if it is properly enforced the vagrant
nuisance would soon be abated.
