For The Marietti# .
Take care of the Children,
Mr. Editor :—ln our great temperance
reform we battle for future generations.
The reclaiming of, the drunkard is of
the greatest moment to him ; but of
more importance is it to prevent the
millions that are coming upon the stage
of action from tasting the drunkard's
cup, or forming the drnnkard's character.
Whatever may be said in favor of leaving
the minds of children unchained and un
fettered on other opinions, no one can
speak in favor of leaving them to drink
deep of intoxication, and gain the drunk
ard's thirst, before they shall decide in
their mind's whether it is best to adopt
the only safe principle of total absti
nence. As there is no natural appetite
for the intoxicating cup, there is nothing
to be subdued in the child. As he has
come under the power of no fashion, no
change of habits is demanded. As he
has not began, to derive from the use of
the sale o f the intoxicating cup and pe
cuniary advantage, no interest has to be
sacrificed. As we are able to point him
to the most baneful consequences of the
use of strong drinks, and assure him of
the greatest personal gain from entire
abstinence. We have a motive, power
ful with the youthful mind, and one,
which if properly presented, will go
through all the ranks of the young
throughout the nation. And its benefits
none can tell, in preserving them from
intemperance—saving them from a great
amount of suffering—degradation and
shame, and making them instruments of
extensive good in all their circles of
influence. Could the rising generation
be trained up with fear and abhorrence
of the drunkard's cup, our great work of
rooting intemperance from the earth
would soon be accomplished, To assist
in accomplishing this great work in our
town and vicinity a "Band of Hope"
Temperance Society has been organized,
for the especial benefit of the youth ;
Should not parents feel a deep interest
in its prosperity ? Is not the happiness
and prosperity of the community closely
connected with that of the proper train
ing of our children ? And is it not the
absolute duty of parents and guardians
to promote the interest of every enter
prize gotten up to improve the morals of
the children ? Is not the happiness of
parents intimately interwoven with that
of their children's character.? Why
then is there not a hearts response from
them all, saying, "Here is my heart and
hand, and purse to help you in this good
work." Come then to the help the
Lord, to the help of the Lord against
the mighty ; the night is coming when
no work can be done, therefore, "what
ever thy hands find to do, do it with all
thy might." And in thy dying hour,
you will not regret that you labored to
advance the temporal—spiritual—and
eternal, interest of the children commit
ed to your ca. e

Commencement of the Year,
By the reformation of the calender by
Gregory, the yeas began on the first day
of. J anuary ; and, consequently, whenev
er and wherever the NEW STYLE - of reck
oning time was adopted, then and there
the year commenced on this day.
Previous to the use of the Gregory
Calendar, the years bad different days
of beginning at various times in the same
and different countries, and occasionally
at the same time in the same country.
In most countries it began on one of the
following days :
Christmas day, the 25th of December
Circumeission day, the Ist of January
Conception day, the 26th of March
and Eater day, the day of the Ream
rection of our Lord..
In England, in the seventh and so
late as the_ thirteenth century, the year
began on - Christmas day; but in the
twelfth century the Anglican Church
commenced the year on the 25th of
March, as did also the civilians of the
fourteenth century. This continued until
1752, the time of the adoption of ilia
new style. By this it appears that tWo
modes of reckoning the commencomout
of the year have generally existed in
great Britain and its colonies, causing
what are - called the Civil, Ecclesiastical,
or Legal Yeurnd the Historical Year.
The last name of these has commended
on the let of January for a long period
In order to prevent, as far as possible,
the occurrence of errors by the use of
two commencements of the year, it is
now' usual to annex the date of he
Historical to that of the Legal Yer,
when alluding to any day between the
let ofJanuary and the 25th of March
previous to 1752—thus : 10 Jan, 164 ;
or 10 Jan. 1624 ; or 10 Jan. 161-2.
When dating occurs, the upper or first
figure indicates the Legal, and the lower
or last the Historical year. The last of
these is the year used in the present
ifizi - A Paris correspondent of the

of hie paper
A number of years ago a person was
taken and committted to prison for pas
sing counterfeit money. Shortly after
wards a negro was taken up for some
crime, and confined in the same cell,
but was taken sick in about a week and
died. Next cl.e.y a coffin was provided,
and the body of the deceased deposited
in it. As people of color are commonly
interred in the evening by those of their
own complexion, the coffin was suffered
to remain till night in the room with the
counterfeiter. After the jailor and those
who accompanied him had left the room
he bethought himself-the present would
be a most favorable opportunity to make
his escape, and thereby avoid the pun
ishment that awaited him.
The wicked do not care much what
are the means, if they can accomplish
their designs. When all was still and
safe he took the corpse out of the coffin
and placed it in his own hammock, got
into it himself, and turned down the lid
carefully as before. In this situation he
lay, anxiously yet fearfully waiting the
moment when he should be liberated
from his loathsome confinement.
In the evening the coffin was taken
from the prison by four lusty negroes,
appointed for that purpose, and solemn
ly conveyed it to the burying ground.
When they arrived at the grave, the
coffin was set down with great care, and
one of them was about to make a speech
upon the death of their companion.—
Scarcely bad he time to utter one word,
before the lid of the coffin flew open, and
the counterfeiter jumped out and made
hie escape ; while the poor negroes,
affrighted almost to distraction. ran with
great violence in every direction scream
ing. The mistake was not discovered
till the nest day, and the prisoner made
good'his escape and was never heard of
LAWYER OIITWIITTED.-A. remiting
officer in the vicinity of Milford, Ohio,
having enlisted several' recruits among

of one of them being desirous of having
his son released from the service, sent
for a young lawyer to pick a hole in the
The lawyer came, in hopes of receiv
ing a great reward for his services, and
reqnesited the officer to relate to him
his manner of enlisting, to which be
readily assented, and said he would show
him, if he required it. The lawyer re
plied, "I shall be glad to get all the in-
formation I can." The officer taking
eight dollars in his hand, said—" Sir, I
tell them as I intend to tell you," (and
after telling him the necessity of enlist
ing and duty in camp) said, "Sir you
receive this money as a part of your
bount,y in the name of the United States,"
(putting the money in his hand) and
stepping to his book, asked the lawyer
his name and age, then said, "Step this
way, sir, and I will show you the manner
they are all qualified," telling him to
raise his right hand, and after administer
ing the oath, said; "Sir, now take your
place in the ranks."

the following : Within a few days past
a case of somewhat novel character . has
been discovered by some philanthropic
ladies in Old Town. It seems that pre

was residing in North Carolina, upon a
very large plantation, surrounded by
luxury and living in true Southern style.
The result of the war reduced her to
want ; her many slaves wer emancipated
by the proclamation, and she was left
helpless and alone. She finally reached
this city several days since, in search of
some old friends, in gieat destitution,
and was about to apply to the authorities
for relief, in her utter despair, when she

residing here, who insisted upon return.

stated in the article referred to. Fill

fill up with oil. It burns with a clearer

twenty-five per cent, in oil. Try it."

and the soldiers ran and sprang upon the
