A a a 0 dear a sighed Good mrs. Bright As she leaned her head thoughtfully upon her hands. A tear or a a two,.trickled through her clasped fingers and she Fly eed As she sat there a like a very care worn anxious Mother. And Teo. She Way. Sue was a widow and Harry her Only child. He was Albright faced boy of thirteen a Quick wit Ted impulsive and kind hearted. But o he was so daring so impetuous so self willed. To Lovlid his Mother dearly but he loved his own Way better.

Harry not feel just right when he got out of doors. The evening was quite dark but the sky was thickly studded with stars and the air was soft and Balmy. It was indeed just such an evening As would ordinarily have set Harry a brain All aglow with Bright dreams. But on this evening it was altogether otherwise. He stole up to the window and peeped in then sat Down on the end of the door Stone leaned his head on his hands just As his Mother was doing inside and began to cry. He was listening to Bis Good Angel then and had nothing untoward happened he would probably have gone in asked his mothers forgiveness and passed a Happy evening with her. But just As Harry was making up ins mind so to do there Camo shrill whistle at the Garden Gate. It was Dick Colton calling Lam to the Satin ground. Harry gave no answer but Drew his sleeve quickly two or three times across his eyes. Dick whistled once More then came to the Corner of the House and peeped round. A a Hallow there Quot he shouted a a Are you asleep or dead ? come there Are half a dozen More boys going on to the River and we shall have capital a a i can to said to Arry faintly. A a can to repeated disk coming up to him a a what do you mean ? been crying too. Ill bet a sixpence. A a that a a Good one. My Mother said you Shaw not go and i said a will. A come boo baby but your mother1, apron strings and Harry not relish being called a boo baby. His Cheeks grew his eyes he breathed Quick clenched his fists and would have struck Dick had not that Art Ful boy turned the tide by a Tough of flattery. A a it is too Baa though Harry that such a Good natured fellow and capital skater As you Are can to have a Little fun now and then of an evening a now Harry like the rest of you boys liked to be called a Good natured fellow and liked Dick at the time for doing it 80 Harry parlayed awhile with the tempter and then what people always do who Parley with sin he mad Ltd a Compromise with Dick and concluded to pro Down to the River Side and look on whilst the other boys skated. Another breach of god so command another forfeiture of the glorious Promise. Dick Colton and the rest of the boys strapped on their skates and started off in Fine style. Harry took Dicks shawl and spread it out at the foot of the great Elm tree which overhung the River and sat Down upon it. He looked up. Through the leafless branches the sky shone Blue and Clear Bege med with stars. Way up and Down theban As far As be could see Little Bushes nudged and crowded each other and leaned far Over on to the Frozen Stream. A very pleasant River Bank they had always made for him before but now they grew weird and grim in the dim Light and the tall Forest beyond them was full of gloom. The boys had gone far Down the River and Harry grew so very lonely he thought he could not stand it any longer a and had just made up his mind to go Home to his Mother when he was startled by a crackling Bushes behind him. It was Only Dick Colton a. Dog however that jumped out of the underbrush on to Harry a neck and began to wag his Tail As much As to say a a you Are not such a bad boy after Harry was glad just then to have the caresses of any living thing so lie hugged the dog until he barked for pain. Suddenly there name up the River a shriek so Clear so shrill and wild. Harry started up in terror. Skating toward him As for dear life he saw five boys. Where was the sixth ? 0 come Quick a they shouted to Harry Dick will drown. He has broken through the ice. 0 do Harry was a Quick witted boy. A your skates a he called to the smallest boy they were off and Buek cd on again in a twinkling Harry snatched the shawl and in less. Time.4han l am , was far Down the River. Stop Stop a screamed the boy behind him a a there be is. You will be in after and so he might had. Not the Stalwart fellow caught Harry by the Arm and thrown him somersault upon the ice. The thin Erust cracked beneath them and they were obliged to creep very poor Dick was in a a fearful plight. Yet Providence had Given him a fragile hold upon life. In an autumn Gale a tall tree had been dislodged from the shelving Shore and had fallen into the Stream which was Here both Broad and deep. Upon the outermost Brancho this tree slender and frail Dick supported himself.1 he not try to reach the ice for he knew that it would break off at his touch so that his Only in the overhanging tree1 he was. A Wise boy to Send for Sharp Brave Harry who just what you must do in a like trial he crept As near the Hole As he Durst and Laid Flat upon the ice then he made another Stout boy lie Down behind him and take hold of his heels. Thereupon he threw a Corner of the shawl to Dick who by the help of that made out to reach the firm trunk of the tree upon which he easily clambered on to the stronger ice. A there was no More skating that night.1 Dicks Little dog clapped his. Tail Between his legs and walked behind his drenched master whining piteously. Harry sobered and saddened went straight Home and Laid open his heart to his Mother. A a 0,-if it had been me dear Mother a said he a a How i should have thought of my unkindness to you. Can i Ever treat you so again a ,.a god helping you my sop you will not a said the widow her eyes filling with tears. A. A a a a a and Harry i Trust thereafter try1 to fulfil the full meaning of that holy commandment with Promise. Wish too that Dick Colton a heart had been washed clean in that cold River but poor Dick was but a sorry fellow at Best. He was Laid up a Long time with a fever brought on by. The exposure of that night and for More than a year was barely Able to hobble about. When i last saw him he had just shipped of Board of a merchantman bound for China. More than one praying Mother Bolds the poor Waif in remembrance and i have Strong Faith of Good news of him some Day. Honor thy father and Mother which is Tjie first commandment with Promise. Coming to Christ. A it was Sabbath evening and All the children were gathered together in the part lor. Luella had been playing on the piano and All had been singing the hymn a a i was a wandering sheep a 1 .�?~1 a a i not love the fold it my i not love my shepherds voice 1 to would not be 1 11 a the eldest sister now seated herself on the sofa and taking her wild little1 brother Willie by the hand she said a a suppose a a a the hog had Juaneti heard of Jit Esus should come to night from the wilds n in. A a i i Tim a t-9lfeu Idom i of Africa and ask to know the Way to heaven How should you Tell him a a i wish i was a missionary a said Mary. A a it must be so pleasant to visit such countries As Africa and India and see the rare Flowers that Are found there and the animals a fire flies so Large that they can he used for candles and tigers that you have to frighten away by opening and shutting umbrellas. -1�?Td carry umbrellas enough i guess i and then it must be splendid to eat bananas and oranges right off the Trees then i should collect Ever so Many stones and idols and shells and such things. Or Cobb has a Cabinet full of them a �?oi1 am afraid you have not the True missionary spirit a replied her sister a but what shall we do with our Little negro boy a a i should teach him to say his prayers and a our father a and a now i Lay me a i should have him1 say them every Day a said Susie. 1 a a but there Are a great Many children who say their prayers and do not love god. I knew a Little Gir who was afraid to go to bed without saying them. She thought something would come and carry her off in the night if she not say them a. A i should make him sit Down and learn that hymn. A a a Little the fold a and wandered far away 1 to Mountain forests dark and cold,1 1 where every danger Lay a 1 that is the first verse a said Willie. A a you would have to explain it All to him. I do not believe it would do much Good a said Susie. sitting very quietly in a Corner of the sofa. She now started up with a Ashing eyes and a glowing Cheek and exclaimed a a i -think1 if you. Were not More in Earnest the Little boy would never come to Christ i would Tell him about Jesus and his great love to is a Rhow he died for sinners upon the. Cross How he was whipped and spit upon Quot and punished for our Sims and i would Tell him that Jesus loves Little children of so much land that he want them to. Come to him. And love him and it grieves him to see them turn away and reject him when he has done so much for them. And then i should Tell him that if he was a Good boy and loved Jesus and was my child that by and by he would go to heaven and have1 a White re be and a starry Crown and he with Jesus 1 a a a you would make quite a preacher Emma but he would not know who Jesus a a i should say that a Long time ago he was in heaven in glory and that people were very wicked and sinned against god every Day and that god oved us so much that he gave his Only son to die for As j that Jesus came into the world and became a Little babe at Bethlehem and grew up and was always pure and. Holy and at last was crucified for us i. see How any one can help Loving him said Susie thoughtfully. A a it seems Yery sad that when he has done so much for. Us we should be so unwilling to love him but you need not wait for a Little negro boy to be imported from Africa. There Are wicked selfish1 children All around us. Can you not ask them to come to Christ ? and can you not give your own hearts to him those of you who have not a said Luella. A a i do some times a said Willie a a but then i get a Doghty again and god seems a great Way off.�?�1but god loves you still and you remember the verse that says a if we confess our sins he is faithful and just to forgive us our sins and to cleanse us from All if you Quot Are sorry you have sinned and Tell Jesus so he will always . Can you not All Pray a Little prayer like Bis if lord Jesus i know that thou Lovest me that thou didst suffer and die for me and because thou Hast done so i Pray thee that thou Wilt forgive me All my Sims. I want to be thine own child to1 love thee alone to please thee in All things. I have wandered away from thee like a lost sheep and thou Hast brought me Back i give myself to thee. Of take me lord Jesus and make me thy the children looked thoughtfully and when the evening lamps were lighted they showed tears Iff Little eyes that had been right recorder. Discussion of fruit the meeting at the office1 of the agriculturist on thursday the 8th ult., was numerous by attended by the. Fruit growers about new a Yok. Irma Trowbridge of new Haven and John a Harold Esq., Secretary of the Queens county agricultural society were present and took the discussion. Or. Armstrong treasurer of the Westchester county agricultural society was also present likewise several spirited horticulturists from new Jersey Sev eral specimens of Winter pears were tested and their merits discussed by those present. The vicar of Winkfield gout Morceau and easter Burre were among those Dis tribute. With care the former May be rendered a tolerable Pear for the table had we no other at this season but with the gout Moreau Lawrence,1 and Winter Nelis which May be had at the same season we would never put the vicar to any Quot other use than cooking. Quot a a by the politeness Oft tev. Or. Beatty of Steubenville 0we Wei a cabled to present a Fine specimens of a an Apple a very common in Eastern Ohio called there the Gate Apple identical with what is called Quot by Downing Bellemont or Waxen. It of task pronounced of very Fine Quality and Well worthy of cultivation. I size and appear a Ance it resembles the Belle Fleur but less elongated. A a Fine seedling was presented for name of or. Hicks of Long Island. Another Quot was offered by or. Tremble of Newark found in the Market of that 1 City. It is a fruit of High character Large fair of a Fine red and tender skin Rich yellow flesh a pleasant acid Crisp and tender. If other characteristics of the fruit a As habits of growth productiveness &c., Are equal to its books and taste it is one of our very Best Quot apples whatever May be its origin Quot r 1 a the regular subject of discussion was however the grape a committee of which or. Fuller of Brooklyn was chair Man had been appointed at a previous meeting to report on. The Best varieties of Hardy grapes for general cultivation.-, the committee were each to bring in , rate report in accordance with their individual views. Only two reported. A a a a it it or. Fuller placed the following six Vari cities in the following order Delaware Concord Hartford prolific Cuya hoga Cre Veling and Iona. The latter three he said were but partially known and there fore a for a a Quot a a were better the Ana Isabella and Diana or. A Williams of West Bloomfield n. of the committee to a Ltd a a a ? a recommended the Clinton Delaware Concord Diana Isabella and Catawba the first As one that would grow without so much cultivation As was requisite for most varieties. The Delaware was confessedly the Best of All. The Concord was placed next without much dissent. But on the Hartford prolific difference of opinion existed some placing it As High As the Isabella Well ripened. It is confessed on All hands that without careful cultivation it would be worthless by overgrowth of Vine and fruit but with rigid cutting Back to a single Bud or two on the past years growth the fruit will be abundant and hold on to the Vine till satisfactorily matured with fair Quality and earlier than any other variety in cultivation. Where House grapes Are not cultivated we should regard the Hartford As worthy of a limited space for Early maturity. We Are evidently from the reports of fruit growers and Pomo logical conventions the past year on the eve of great improvement in Hardy grapes. Attention is now widely Given to the growing of new varieties of grape from seed and a Large number of seedlings Are in the course of trial which Promise Well. Zehavo no doubt that a few years will developed new sorts of american Hardy grapes which will supersede the older kinds now most widely cultivated Jav. Y. Observer.,1 a. Two questions settled. I test. Saw to get a Small crop ? plow and Plant at the latest Day it can possibly answer do it in the cheapest possible Way expend neither Money nor labor for Fertile cers cultivate in a cheap and hurried Way never forgetting that with a Given amount of produce the cheaper the cultivation try greater the profit. What can be More evident than that if you get Twenty bushels by. An outlay of five dollars the profit is greater this year than if you get Twenty bushels by an outlay of ten dollars. Cling to this self evident truth. Carry it into the blowing planting weeding cultivating fencing and harvesting the less Pend the greater per cent of what you har Vest will be net. Heigh Hor May Havo fifty dollars Tod duet from the value of his crop for Cost be wide awake to keep your Cost Down to five dollars an acre if possible and you will be pretty sure of a Small crop. 1 a 1 a i 2d, How to get a Large crop ? plow in Good season. Plow again before planting if the soil is not Loose and Well pulverized. While working in and mixing the manure with the whole body of the soil while cultivating often and carefully and while doing a whatever your j judgment tells you will a ,product, own mind which would be most probable to grow sixty dollars Worth of produce from an acre at a Cost of forty dollars or twelve dollars Worth at a Cost of five dollars ? consider who fare Best the men who run Over land in the cheapest Way and make it sure that the crops shall be Small or those who spare nothing necessary to a Large crop you will say the latter if you Rea son soundly. You will prefer to expend Quot forty dollars and get sixty dollars rather than expend five dollars and1 get1 Twenty dollars not Only because Yon get More profit per acre but because when Yout expend forty dollars on an Are this years return is not the end of it half remains in the soil to help the next years crop. Low farming never pays except in Virgin soils and then Only temporarily so Long As the soil is Ini the process of being spoiled. A High farming always and everywhere . 1 1feeding turkeys in Winter. Where Corn is cheap and the bins Are full nothing better is needed. But unfortunately Many who like roast Turkey have their bins nearly empty where Corn is nearly a Dollar a Bushel. These Birds will eat longer of Corn than of any other food. They seem never to get enough of it. But they Are by no Means Dainty in their diet and will eat anything coming from the Kitchen that Quot a pig will a devour if1 it be properly prepared. They will work up the refuse material from the farm and Garden about As Well As pigs. Boiled potatoes fed warm Are highly relished by them. In this Way potatoes that Are too Small for marketing and for seed May Quot be turned into roast Turkey 06 very Short notice. If the pairings and slops from the Kitchen Are boiled and mashed with them it is All the but they need a variety of food Green As Well As cooked in order to thrive most rapidly. A they Are very fond of Eab Bage and will feed upon the refuse plants1 that have not headed until the Stamps Are picked Bare. If these Are not on band raw turnips chopped up Fine will be readily eaten. They need also some animal food to to 1promote growth in Winter it beef scraps from the tallow Chandlers or butchers Are As highly relished As by hens. Nothing in the Way of animal food comes amiss. It is of More importance that Tite food should be abundant and various than that it should he . Arica Laurist. In Iron Navy of great Britain. The following is1 an extract from a Lect Ture lately delivered on the above named subject by j. Scott Russell Esq., before the Leeds England philosophical and liter-1 Ary society i a 1 Quot 1 or. Russell stated he was not sure that they had a Fleet capable of -protecting1 their Commerce from Cle vervain Art Well handled and fast pirates like the Alabama. The first question was were wooden ships of War Worth anything for purpose a of warfare. Sir John a. Hay the chairman of the Cenaj Mittee appointed by. Government. To make experiments on the effects i ipod Iron Armor uttered this fatal Sente up up Only wooden fleets a the Man who goes in of action in a wooden ship is a fool and the Man who sends him there is a villain�?T.? the worthlessness of Wood ships came from their combustible nature and arose mainly from the invention in modern times of horizontal Shel firing which could be Diso Barg red with tolerable certainty at distances1, of twp three four and even five Miles. A they could however make Iron ships i combustible. A plateau Inch thick. Bad it been found to take the sting out of -,a1 Shell altogether.

Second and the question was How to Stop it ? a Many theories had been proposed to Stop the Shell by coaxing that wis by pieces of India rubber by Bales of Cotton blankets and other mollify ing substances. a a.

It was then a question _ of strength if there was a certain Quantity More of Iron in the plate than in the Shell the plate had it and vice versa but if the plate were hit three or four times in the same place it would probably give Way of All the hundreds of shots fired in action very few would have similar fortunate circumstances. The mortality and sickness of the army or. Elliott actuary of the sanitary commission in a preliminary report on the mortality and sickness of the volunteers estimates that the number of deaths in the Volunteer forces of the United states during the War a a Home guards a and other bodies not in Active service being excluded has been at the annual rate of fifty three per thousand men of which about forty four were from diseases and accidents and nearly nine from wounds received in action assuming the same rate of mortality for those discharged and deserted and the an of deaths is about sixty five per thousand. The rate of mortality for the autumnal months is twice nearly that for the summer months and the Winter nearly doable that of autumn the mortality in the armies of 4he-Rwest is three times As great As that in the volunteers of the Eastern and Middle states. The deaths from wounds Are five times As great in the Western army. To Supply losses among to be enlisted men in our Eastern armies requires recruits at the rate of Nineteen per 1,000 per month or 226, per .1,000 per annul to Supply such losses in our Western armies requires recruits at the rate of nearly Twenty per 1,000 per month or 234 per 1.000 per annul. The number of Jess a Quot tons from the Eastern army is double that from the Western army. To secure in the Field a constant Force of 500000-1 effective men recruits Are required of 123,000 Meh per annul As Long As the War last a be sides maintaining 5.800q�?Tin hospitals. Of these 123,000 annual recruits 83,000 Are to. Supply losses by death and discharges from service exclusive of discharges for expiration of term of enlistment 34,000 for desertion and missing in action and 6.000 to Supply other losses specified and unspecified.
