A Story From Eeal Life. "What do you mean by such carelessness ?" exclaimed John Döring to his son William, a young lad of twelve years.—"Take thatl he added, striking the boy a heavy blow on the side of the head: and that and that 1" repeating the blows as he spoke,, the last of which knocked the boy over a plow that was standing by his side. "Get up now, and go into the house," continued the father, "and see if you can't keep out of riiischiet for a while, and stop that crying, or I'll give you something to cry for." The boy started for home, struggling to siirpress his sobs as he went. "It is astonishing," said Döring, addressing a neighbor named Hanford, who was near in a barn, and of course had seen and heard all tliathad passed, how troublesome bays are. . Just $ee those oats now that I've got to pick dp for that boys carelessness," and he pointed to a measure of oats which William had accidentally overturned. "Audit was for that trifle that you -asaaultetl yonr tlnW antl k nocked irim^ down?" replied Mr. Hanford, in. a sorrowful tone. Döring looked from the oats in surprise, and repeated- "Assaulted my child and knocked liim down I Why, what do you rntüui, neighbor Hanford?" "Just what I say. Did ' you not knock the child over the plow?" "Why—weU—Ji^ atuuiT.- bliifl^ancrTtnT over it," doggedly replied Döring. "Do you go against parental "-^vn't I u right to punish my own cliildi-oiii "Oortaiiily you have," responded Mr. II;uiiorci, "In a proper manner, and in a proper spirit, but not otherwise. Do you think that a father has a right to revenge hiniseif npon his child ?" "Of course nut; but who's talking about ix'v<-ng+-?'' Well fiiciid. During, lot inc ask you an oilier question: Tor what purpose should child be punished?" "Why, to make it better, and to do it good, of Course," quickly ans-were<l Döring. "Fur any other?" quietly asked Hanford. *\Vell, no, not that I can .think of just now," replied Döring, thoughtfully. ".\ii'l now my frimd," kimlly con-tiiujcil Ml', llanrmil, "do yon siipoose youi' tK' itiiicnt to yiini- siiii a few lyo-meuts ago did him any goo<i, <ir has incfeaswl his respect I'or yon? The l)oy, 1 venture to huv, is nttorly un-concioiis of liaving di'iie cny wrong, and yet you suddenly ¡issaiilted him with anger and violence, and gave him a beating which no penitentiary convict can be sul'jected to' witliout having tiie outrage; in(^iiired into by a legislative couunittee. l>ut let me tell vou a long story You knew my son Charles?" 'The one that is preacliing in Charles-town?" . ' "Yes; you have probably noticed that he is lanic?" "I have n<iticed it," said Döring, and asked hj he told me ha got hurt when a boy." "Yes," responded Mr. Hanford with emotion, "the dear boy could never be made to say that it was by his father's brutality.—But listen" he cuntinu^ as he saw Döring was about to speak. - "When Charles was about the age of your son William, he was one of the most active and intelligent boys I had ever seen. I was fond of him, and especially of his physical beauty and progress. But unfortunately I was cursed with an irritablf and violent tempei', and was in the habit of punishing n^y children under the influetice of passion and" vengeance, instead of from the dictates of reason, duty and enlighted aflection. One day^ fjiiarles offended me by some boyish and trifling niisdemeaiior, ;ind I treated hini almost exactl3^as you treated your son a few minutes ago. I struck him violently, anjl he fell upon a pile of stones at my side, and '"njured his left side so badly that the result was that he was.- crippled for life," said Mr. Hanford^ in, tones of deepest spr^ aWreino^^^ his face with his hands. A period of oppressive silence followed, which was at last broken by Mr, Hanford saying: ; When I found that my lioy did not rise from the stones on which he had fallen, i seized him by the arm and rudely pulled him to his feet, and was about to strike hi|n again, when something that I saw in his face, in the lookrarrested^ tny arni, änd^ r asked ifhe was hurt. _ * , '-I am alVaid that I am, pa,» he inildly an8v?ered, clinging to my arm for support. ILWiiere-B 1 asked--4iifii in^-greist tilarm, for notwithstiindrng my brutali= ty, i fairly idolized the boy. *'Here," he replied, laying his hand upoa bis-hip^-^^ In silence'T took him in ray arms and carried hinj to his bed, from which he never arose the same bright, active, glorious boy that I had so cruelly struck down .on that pile of stones, but after many months he came forth a pale, saddened little fellow, hobling on a crutch Here Mr. Hanford broke down and wept like a child, and_the___tear8 also rolled down Doring's cheeks. When he resumed, Mr. Hanford said; _ ^'Thisis^iiiii^^^ bor Döring, and I %vould not have related it to you had I not supposed that you needed tho lesson which it contains. It is impossible for me to give you ail adequate notion of the suffering I have undergone ou . Account of my brntal mshness to my boy. But fortunately it Ms been overruled to my good, and to that of my family also, The vemc'dy, though len^^^^ plete, and no other child of mine has ever been punished by riie,except ^fhen I was in the full' possession and exercise of my best faculties, and when my sense of duty has been chastened and softened by reason and affection. " I devoted iiiyself to poor Charlie from the time he left his bod, and we come to understand one another as I think few fathers and sons ever do. The poor boy never blamed me for blighting so much happiness for him, and I sometimes tried to thimk that his life had been made happier on the whole than it would have been had I not been taught my duty through his sacriiice. Still, neighbor Döring, I should be sorry to have you and your son William pass through a similar ordeal." "I trust that we shall not," emphatically and gravely responded Döring; I thank you for your stoiy, friend Hanford, and I shall try and profit by it." Influeaee of the Press- In a sermon on Thanksgiving Day, by the Rev. Mr. Leaken, Rector of Trinity (Epischpal) Church Baltimore, he said:— "I shall reserve the remainder of my remarks to a subject which is rarely alluded to in tlie pulpit, but which is exei'cising a most important influence upon-every State; cfty, village, couiitry and family of our Union. I refer to the press—the ncwR":"^'"' ""i''""*^ '' * <V,o «m-^li-^ i,oH-.»n<ng, a luxury to iiie favored few, has becom indispensable to piillions, and whose power in forming bublic stMilinient is unnieusur-able. "To illustrate remotely the inflncnce of this power, suppose a person of intelligence coming to your family every morning. He infpi tns you of all that lias accuried in yonr city, in your country, in Europe, or distant Asia. He gatliers the details of each interesting event; he attends each important meeting, and tells you what was said and done. In rain and tempest, in summer and winter, does this person pay you hi.s daily visits; and not only bri ngs you information,but gives you his opinioti on each (]uestion that arises. In time he becomes one of you;he is identified witii your family; and the character of ytnirself and those around have been moulded by this constant contact. "Bnt the newspaper doe.s more. It brings you an hundred difierent articles, besides adveiLisements. It can 4)0 read at leasnre. Its information reaches ciiildreii, and is read by servant;-). It forms the subject of con-•vorHiwk.>ti-,.-.a.; id-pilas-its.«ea.'ieles8---visite to your homes, instructive, enteraining and iiiteresting to all. Have I overestimated the force <jf this mighty engine? The French Encyçlopœdists ht.'lped to produce tlie French revolution by means ofpondeioas books reaching the learned few. "What increased influence must the modern press exert, acâïtering its myriad thoughts daily among the the editor ! How vast his capacity for good or evil. He may enter the family daily and difïuse cheerfulnes.s by his diversilied thoughts. He may dry the tears ^>f sorrrrw, animate" tire weary pilgrim to renewed exertions, arrest the young man in his downward carreer,and shield tlie humble and defenceless against the invasion of power. We have prayed for the President of the United States, and for all in authority,—for oiu- Senate and Representatives in Cofigress assembled. And shall we forged those who make our Presidents and deternuue our Representatives?" Wheat-Meat—Caddaoe—Potatoes—Ap-pLes-Grapes-Beets-Tomatoes-Bread „^cake—and Some otiien-thinos'-anr the Boys and Girls Bestoes. ~ Sprite—John SniUh's Country Store^ Speakers, Sundry Villagers, and Farmers who have "Imppened in as usual" ' Mr. Smith.-^Trade is very dull nowadays, I don't sell half as much as I did five years ago. Mr. Jones.—Good reason. Things'er so high, we can't afford ^o buy." You charge such awful prices, Smith. pay 80 much more. When I sold sugar at 10 cents a pound, I made a cent on a pound, and I only make a cent now on 20 cents, and this cent profit don't go lis far to keep my family. Mr. Brown,—I buy just as much as ever. I don't see as there is much change. I used to sell my 600 bushels of wheat for 76 cents a bushel, or . -Qf.lhiH,.$260 -w<int for -PaTOily "¿tore bills, and $500 to pay off my farm debt. Now when I sell for 1,50 per pushol, or $900, it takes; about $500 for for store bills, and leaves $400 to pay off the deht. In fact these high prices suit me. I wish Mr. McCulloch had kept out of the Treasury, for he threatens to make greenbacks par, and knock down prices. Mr. Price —I don't see as it makes much difference. If thprc is twice as much money going,and everybody gets twice as much for everything that he rajses,and pays twice as much for every thing he buys, it all comes out equaio at the end; and there is this gain in the operation; those who save money, or make a profit, make double, as neighbor Brown explains about paying his farin debt. Mr. BoTLER.-That's so. Mr. Green.-So'I think.—Mr.Moore. -So do I. Mr. baker.-There is a little drawback. I keep the account of Widow Roberts, who has the mortgage on Mr. Brovvn'^a farni, and the $400 he paj^s, don-1 go only half so far in supporting her, and educating her children. Mr. Travis (the Shool Teacher).-Yes it does, for I only get $30 a nipnth for teachirig Mrs. Robert's and others' children, and I used to get $25^ with wheat at 75 cents. Rev. Mr. Corey.—And I only get $G00 a year, while I always had ^ith whcararT5 cehfs'"and sugar 10 cents. C.^____ - ■«''■ < ■ 'i -.„Uii sepiare. Mk. Knox, (Editor,)—And you only pay nie $2 a year for my nc'wspaper, which you thought clieap at $1,50, five years ago, though I have now to pay three times as much for every thing I use in making a newspapci". Mr. oreene.-Why xlon't you raise your price too? Mr. KNox.-People won't stand it. I must keep along with no profit, or even at a loss, hoping for better times, or else lose my 8ul)scribcr8, and let the paper go down. Why when I raised the price from $1,50 to $2. a year, a good many stopped their paper-aniong them Mr. Brown himself, though I paid him double for liis wheat. Mr. Brown.-I didn't stop it so much for the price; I went in for paying for my farm by extra economy. Mil. Knox -Yes, he followed my advice "for people to economise and pay their debts now." But let us see .jf Mr. Brown begun at the right place On one Saturday I publisheil in my paper that wheat had advanced .15 cents a bushel. On Monday Mr. Brown went to market with liis,wheat, and sold GO iiUfiheU- old price, and thought he did. well. He came h<iine boiisting about it, until he. met neighbor Johnson, who got the 15 cent advance, because he read my paper, and was wiilc-awake. JUr.. Brown's loss on CO bushels would pay four whole years, subscription. Mr. BRowN.-Don't say anything mOie about that, Mr, Knox, and put me down a subscriber for life. other such losses by those who stopped my paper. Not to be too personal, as some of them are here, I will call them A. B. C, etc. Mr A! paid 4 per cent more fees on fTl" taxcrs; ' be did not see the collectors notice in my paper, and thus lost $2,84, to savp $2. Mr. B. paid $3,00 the same way, Mr. C., failed to bring in his claim against an estate, because he did not see in my paper the legal notice limiting th<i time.

Please talk the matter over with «ther neighbors and 'see, if it cannot be done. ..SB-VEBAL ■ willr -- Mr. Smith—And now while you are about it, I want to make up a club for a good New York Paper. Mr. Brown,-We can't afford to take so many papers. Mr. Smith.-You have just seen that you could not afford to stop your home paper; let us see if it will not pay to joiii bur club. Mr. Rích, yòu have taken the American Agriculturist for several years "Does it pa?/? Mr. Rich.—Pay ? Yes fifty times over. Why, I got two ten-acre fields ready to sow to \vhcat, and put in one of them. That night my AgricuUurist came, and I read a simple i'ccomenda-tion about preparing seed wheat. I calbd John and we put 15 bushels in soak for the next day. It cost 50 cents for the materials. Well, that second field yielded 5 bushels an acre more than the other—or 50 bushels extra,and better wheat too. Pretty good pay for $1,50 expended for a paper. . And I got lots of other hints almost as profitable. You knSw I get better profits on my beef, pork and miitton, than any otiror man "in tiie^plaCB.- No wdoPs^ttits not come from any direct hint» like the wheat, but from a good many suggestions that I have picked up in reading the and from the Cotifse of reasoning tha; I have been led into by reading in it what others do, and think, and say. Mr. Smith.—You are another sub-mìhW'iòlM'A^icMiiriò^^ does it pay ? Mr. WirsT—Voo. Yuuknow iiou ^(juu t;ivtrtr,»j;co aiiu , had last season. Why^ tl«5 cabbages were worth double any others in town, for mfirket or for home use. I had 400 heads, worth 5 cents a piece, extra; and they only cost 20 cents extra for seed. My 250 bushels of potatoes are all engaged for seed at $1,50 a bushel, when other kinds bring only 50 cents. That's $250 clear gain, for the $14 extra I paid for seed, iind the $1,501 paid for the Agrieulturist. It was through this paper that I learned about both the cabbages and potatoes. Its (iditors are careful, intelligent men, on the constant lookout for anything new that is .leally good, while the paper abounds in cautions against the poor and unpiTifitable. " " 7 Mr. Smith.—What say you, Mr, Taylor ? Does it pay to invest $1,50 in the AgricuUurist ? Mu. Taylor.—Most certainly. A hint in the paper le<l me to look after certain insects at the pr(tper time, and the result was, 1 had IGO bai rels of splendid apples, which brought niii'a clean $5 per barrel, and this you know was better by $1, than the average prices •neaNs «IF advkrtim nm Oat tquw* an« w«fk, -f 1JÍ On« tquaro tlirc* ire«kt.

Ah! young man, if the holy feeling of love fof her who bore is not dead within you, shun that which gives her pain; adhere to that which giv«s her joy. If she is with you on earth, she ,does not, cannot desire to see her son a dirunkard. If she is with her Father in hgaveii, shun that course of life which shuts the gates of Heaven against you, and debars you from her society forever.

And then think of a household sitting down together 365 days iri a year, and having nothing to talk about, except their own affairs, and a few itenis of gossip, gatheredmp by 'occasional contact with other people. Mr. tavlor.-Let me help Editor Knox's argument. Wife read to me an item Tie published about a humbug, which he copied from the American Mr, Crane.—I only read in the paper what was said about hogs—what kind pajd best^ how to feed them and, ihelike ;Tjut iryou wilf^ll aroun^airKr see my porkers, and my expense ac count, I'll bet a pippin 1 can fitow fifty dollars more of pork for the same money, than .anyi)ther man here. And this comes from reading what other men think "and do. But Wife ought to be here to speak. She and the giris read the Agriculturist next to the Bible They think the household department is worth zinesinthe fiill of good hints about' all kinds of house work. All I can say is, that we do have better bread and cake; and "Wirc'saya,rtlic ^^^^ don^t cost so inucTi as it used to. She has learned frtiiri the having to write out; it.

In cities and towns the man who does not insurg Ms jproperty is the, exception and is generally considered improvident. It is true that farm bvild-ings are less liable ta be destroyed by fire-tbanthose-in-eitieSybut-lt-ie-eqaaUy-true that when once on fire there it but very little hope of saving them. A careless smokcr,thr0winghi8 un|umed but fired tobacco upon a bunch'ofbaj or straw, the dropping of a candle, the explosion of a lamp, have caused tJ^ destruction of many barns. and i^iedt containing not only the hay and grain of a whole season's labor, but valuable „ ____ animals and the of the farm he worid., Theysay,iti8 so ^^^^^^ explosion of keraeeae lamps, and careless use of matcbet among children.

They told me, the other day, they got these up from pictures and descriptions in the AgricuUurist. Mr. Travis.—My salary haft not allowed me to take the paper; though I raust squeeze put enough to do so this year. My school boys have brought me some copies to look at, the past year or' two, and I find the Bwys'^ and Girls' departEaent of the AgricuUurist the best thing I ever saw.
