NIMI'.KIt 10. 

Some poet. I think it is Dr. 
Walts. says: — -Tis education forms 
the common mind; just as the twig 
is bent the tree’s inclined.” This 
is so Incontestably line that the! 
most stupid and obtuse intellect 
cannot fail to realize the verity of 
it. Kdm ation organizes and arran- 
ges the powers ef thought method- 
ically; methodical thinking forms 
the foundation of correct reasoning; 
correct reasoning leads to close 
observation and acute investiga- 
tion; those ca".se an inquiry into | 
the true character of causes and 
effects; reasoning from cause to ef- 
fect discloses the source and foun- 
tain of wisdom and knowledge; and 
these arc the climacteric of Iranian 
power: and since knowledge is pow- 
er, fl enables us to command and 
control whatever ( tod has beqeatli- 
ed to us for our earthly inheritance, 
if we desire lo do so. llenco, it is 
education alone, which gives man 
his apparent elevation or pre-emi- 
nence above the brute creation. 
It is this, and this only, which en- 
ables him to circumscribe his act- 
ions, and keep them within such 
bounds, as will yield him thegreat- 
estotmount of earthly prosperity 
and felicity; audit is this which ! 
cheers and consoles him onward to i 
the gates of Death, and prepares 
him for his transit to a happy im- 
mortality. Now it is presumed no 
one will deny that t he parent or 
guardian who gives to his child or; 
ward a well-directed and practical 
education, gives il an inheritance 
which neither sorrow, misfortune 
nor adversity can take away; and 
henc". that- it is durablo aa the 
mind, and is the most estimable 
and important of all worldly gifts. 
Theroforo. .im-e education is the 
most desirable and important   ( 
till worldly possessions, it is of vi- 
tal importance that ws consider; 
I lie subject with great care, and 
adopt the most, effective means of 
obtaining il ourselves, and the sur- 
est mode of bestowing it upon otif 
ers generally, if not universally; 
and since education contributes 
so largely to our temporal comfort 
il is of still more vital importance 
to our happiness in that world 
which knows no end, because im- 
mortal felicity is t lie legitimate 
fruit of a well spent and pious life 
on earth, and earth being onr 
warehouse for eternity, it follows 
I hat wisdom and knowledge, which 
are the offspring of education, ire 
tiie only reliable operatives which 
we can employ to cultivate, nur- 
ture and store, in this earthly 
warehouse of ours, fruits, tit for 
“that house not made with hands.” j 
I lay down the proposition that- 
The human mind is the offspring of 
instinct and education, and that 
woman, physiologically, and by her' 
instruction anti influence, forms! 
seven eighths of it. lienee, she 
is the elementary material on 
which the foundation and seven- 
eighths of the great superstucture 
of education rest. Therefore she 
is the begiuing point, and should 
be carefully and thoroughly edit-i 
catecl in all things, and trained in 
the way she should go. Having 
laid down this proposition, I sub- 
mit it to the court of the fairies | 
for their discussion and demonstra- 
tion under t lie belief that they are 
much more competent to dispose 
of if than 1 am; and, without furth- 
er digression, return to theirpoet 
ical prayer. In my judgement this 
prayer was an epitome of the du 
ties we owe to our Creator, our i 
fellow man, and ourselves. It was 
uni verbal in its application; yet 
it comprised the entire category 
of human duties within tiie small 
est possible compass. It lias fall- 

a very devout and pious divine, 
who closed the business and ttir. 
moils of the day by singing a 
“liime” and prayer. He had a 
neighbor living near by, who was 
notorious for his “moral depravity.” 
In other words, he was so wonder 
fully “light lingered” that lie laid 
violent hands on things which did 
not belong to him, an 1 his lingers j 
alheredto them with prodigious 
tenacity. Daring his supplications, 
our divine bethought himself that 
lie would pray for his unrighteous, 
neighbor; and during this part of 
his invocation a very large rat 
passed before him which caused 
his prayer to go forward thus; “()! 
purify and cleanse bi n from this 
loul iniquity-ah; — There goes a 
mighty big ratj-ah. Kill him! Bed- 
im. kill the sorv ol’-ah! the son of

en to my lot to mingle much with 
praying communities, but the brev- 
ity and beauty of this simple pray- 
er, and the sincere, heartfelt and 
almost holv devotion with which 
it wtis uttered, gave it a pre-emi- 
nence in my estimation, so far 
above the. clerical lip Service 
which we often hear from the pul- 
pit, that I most heartily endorsed 
it as a superior production. Indeed. 
1 considered it equal, if not supe- 
rior to the oratory of the more an- 
tiquated clergy whose rhetoric de- 
manded that the terminus of the 
last wonVof every sentence, if not 
that of every word should he a. 
guttural a ij. As an example, I 
once sojourned during a night with 

-ah!! the son of a gun-ali!!! and 
the lord have mercy on Ids soul 
-ah.” Nature endowed me with 
a large slock of gravity, but I free 
ly confess that such praying as this 
effects my facial muscles seriously. 
It produces ugly contortions, and 
unatural elongations &c., which to 
say th« least of them, are exceed- 
ingly t rouble- ome; whereas the 
pure, chaste and almost holy dic- 
tion of the fames produces the op- 
posite tranquibzing effect, which 
when heard, stamps itself upon the 
tablets of the memory with an in- 
dellibility which death, only, can 
erase, llenco, I am compelled to 
acknowledge the superiority of 
the prayer of tiie fairies. 

- My half hour now ex-pired, 
and 1 gave my attentions to 
the proceedings of the* court. — 
Mis ; Angela rose, and the judge 
I’.iictly pronounced the words No. 
one, which announced that MRs 
Angela had the floor. Here was 
a very decided improvement they 
had made. Instead of the old stu- 
pid parliamentary regulations 
w hich would announce, as per ex- 
ample, that ‘-the Honorable, tal- 
ented and distinguished member 
from district number one of Ken- 
tucky has the floor,” when, prob- 
ably, that dignitary might not 
; honor, .;!enl or distinction, 

they had numbered each fairy, and 
when sho was referred to, they 
simply pronounced her number. — 
In this case Miss Angela was No. 
1, and she simply aske 1 “the neo- 
phyte out there in the corner,” 
pointing her index linger at me to 
“take his seat on the platform.” 
I tool: lily seat ks desired, and the 
minutes of the proceeding session 
were read and approved. The 
judge then required tlio recorder 
to read over the catalogue of mi 
finished business connected with 
I be “good of the order,” This 
embodied a somewhat lengthly cat- 
egory of deferred and unfinished 
business, first of which, was an ml - 
dress from No. 1, which had already 
been deferred too long. No. 5, 
rose and *aid; “The neophyte there 
has only been instructed in tiie 
Alpha section of his initiation, 
and prudence demands that we 
should move him onward through 
the Beta Section. I therefore re- 
spectfully ask permission to move 
the court to suspend our present 
action upon the good of the order, 
for the purpose of taking up this 
subject.’ No. 200 rase to a point 
of order and said — “our laws a c 
like those of the Modes and Per- 
sians. They cannot be altered. 
They were purposely made so be- 
cause we bad seen the folly com- 
mitted by the various moral and 
religious societies of the times, in 
placing the good of their “orders,” 
and the consideration of all good- 
ness, as the last in the catalogue, 
and so far away that they were 
never reached. Consequently, 
they were non-entities; or subjects 
much talked about, but never act- 
ed upon with any important bene- 
ficial results.” The judge decided 
that No, 5 was out, of order, and 
directed No, 1, or Miss Angela, to 
proceed with the following ad- 

•■'Ti~ now Leap Year; aia-t I fear

An Honest Man 

Is the noblest work ofGod. AY hen 
one is found and proved, it is a 
duty we owe lo society to publicly 
recognize and hoaytily commend 
him to tiie world. 

A circumstance which proves 
the character of one of our Broad- 
way business men, iias been com- 
municated Lo us, and, unsolicited, 
from a sense of duty, and for the 
pleasure of doing that duty, we 
here give it publicly. 

 Some fourteen years ago, Mr. 
Horace Waters, the music dealer 
on Broadway, being in business in 
this city, became embarrassed, and 
finally was compelled to make an 
assignment. The matter was clos- 
ed up and Mr. Waters again went 
on in business. One of bis credi- 
, tors was .T. F. Zeblcy, Esq., a whole- 
sale paper dealer, who then did an 
immense business on Spruce street, 
adjoining tiie Tribune buildings. 
A man of wealth, great business 
capacity, liberal, generous and en- 
terprising to a fault, Mr. Zebley 
quietly took his dividend, which 
was very small, and dismissed the 
matter as paid in full. 

(Several years after, Mr. Zebley 
was called upon to pass under the 
rod which the war laid upon the 
Northern business men who trails, 
acted with Southern people — he 
' too was driven to the wall and fail- 
! eil \ 

Waters, who at this time began 
to get ahead, agreeably surprised 
his old creditor by sending to him 
a ch?ck for a part of the canceled 
debt — and subsequently sent Ins 
; check for the whole of the bal- 
ance, with interest to date of pay- 
ment added. 

This was wholly unexpected and 
unasked for by Mr. Zebley, who 
related the circumstance to us. We 
learn from Mr. Z. that the other 
creditors of Mr. Waters were treat- 
ed in the same way. 

This statement is made, as lie- 
fore stated, fronj a pure desire to 
discharge a pleasant duty in point- 
ing out at. least one honest man. 
It is done without any sort of 
knowledge of it on the part of Mr. 
Waters, whom we have never seen, 
and, of course, we do not know. 

The man who is thus a law unto 
himself; who seals his claims to 
integrity and honor in this way. 
in a plodding, quiet, unnoted way, 

! without the hope or expectation 
that it will bo noticed by any uave 
by Him who seeth all tilings, with- 
out expecting any approval save 
that of his own conscience, is one 
to be honored, trusted, and patron- 

We, therefore, do our part, and 
while honoring, commend Mr. 
Waters and his business to our pa- 
trons. and say that we will guar- 
antee his transactions with them 
straight and honorable. 

Wo admit no advertisers to our 
columns, except such, as upon in 
' quiry, we find, or think we laid 
to he reliable men. In searching 
the title of Mr. Waters as an ap- 
plicant for otirspace, one ef our re- 
porters unearthed the facts we have 
given above, — N. Y, Progress.

The Mis.-ft~ippi River Railroad. 

The eon® lion of affairs of this 
road are J-ertainlv encouraging. 
The survey ^mul location of the 
road from Memphis to Covington 
tire finally completed. The work 
will be let out immediately to con- 
tractors, and ground will be bro- 
ken at an early day. The route f 
surveyed by Capt. Millington 
proves not only shorter than the' 
old survey, luit by Ibis route the 
road can be built for twenty five to 
forty-percent cheaper than by the] 
other. On this route the grades I 
are lower and (he approximation 
jo an air line is nearer than any 
other railroad of equal length in 
the State. These facts insure a 
high rate of speed, and safety in the 
runnning of the road. It is grat- 
ifying to us to be able so state 
that, in accordance with the in 
strucitons of Colonel Mitchell 
President of the Road, Captain 
Millington and his able assistants 
have laithfiily striven to obtain the: 
best, line possible between Mem-

ing whose land it hit or missed. 
Tho sootier the road is completed

Martin, Gardner & Co. assisted 
by the merchants and board of to-

of $20(1. The fair will be open to

Oar Exchanges in the 
Several cotton States give encour- 
aging accounts of the growing 
crop, though it is very backward, 
in many sections, from the lateness 
ol the spring and tlie difficulty of 
procuring labor, at the* beginning 
of the season. A good stand is re- 
ported as a general thing, and un- 
der the kindly influences of the 
last two or three weeks of clear, 
warm weather, t lie plant is flour- 
ishing and thrifty. Should the] 
months of July and August prove 
favorable, the yield will be very) 
good for the area planted, but with 
the present picking capacity of the j 
South. we cannot reasonably expect 
to realize moi'e 2,500,000 bales.! 
This will be (he maximum of the 
cotton crop until the gentleman r 
from China, with It is extra hat and 
rice pan, arrives to take the ‘place j 
of the indolent and unreliable tie-! 
friends, and had the Church been gfo, or to increase and give vitality 
twice as large it could not have to our present system ol'Iabor. The

healing and hem-lieial qualities it poss.-isscs,

I was wounded about -two years ago

teen months. Being moved so often, my 
wounds have not lust led vet. I have not I 
sat up a moment sim-e I was v-oundod. I, 
am shot thnnijplt the hips. My general 
health is impaired, ami I need something to

Sarsaparilla than in anything else. I wish! 
that that is genuine. Please express tin-

Dn. John Bull— D ear Sir : Mv husband I 
Dr. C. S. Johnson, was a skillful surgeon,! 
and physician in Central New Y ork, w hen-

a chronic diarrhea and scrofula, for which I 
gave him your Sarsaparilla. It Ci lth 


to many 

scrolula, lever sores, and general debility. 
Perfect success has attended it. The cures 
a fleeted in some cases of scrofula fever sores 
were almost miraculous. I am very anx- 
ious for my son to again have, recourse to 
your Sarsaparilla. Be is fearful of getting 
a spurious article, hence his w riting to you

In no previous year has (here 
been such strong competition among 
all the leading Solving Machine 
Manufacturers of this country and 
Europe as the present. At all the 
principal Exhibitions and Fairs 
they met and contested for the Pre- 
mium on Family Sciviny Machines, 
and the i-csult was unanimously in 
favor of the Florence Reversible 
I'-e.i t nrlc-Stilch Family Sewing 
Machine. It rcccltcrf tr,a nrst and 
Highest Prize as the best Family 
Sewing Machine, at the following 
Exhibitions, viz.: Exposition Uni- 
vcrscUc, Paris ; American Institute 
Fair, Xew York; Sew England 
Agricultural Pair, at Providence, 
It. I. ; the Xew York Slate Pair, at 
Itu/falo; the Great Annual l-'airs 
of Xew England, viz.: that of the 
Mechanics' Association , at Lowell, 
Massachusetts, and the Pair of the 
Maryland Institute, at Baltimore, 
which closed a four-weeks’ Session 
on the 12th of Xovctnbcr, the supe- 
riority of the FI/OHEXCE was 
again confirmed by the Committee 
on Sewing Machines, who unani- 
mously awarded it the “ GOLD 
ME UAL,” the highest Prize the 
Institute confers. 

It would scorn ns if this succession of tri- 
umphs should bo sufficient to convince every 
unprejudiced person of tho great superior- 
ity of the FLORENCE over all others as a 
Family Sewing Machine. 

A written warranty is given to the pur- 
chaser, that the Machine WILL DO ALL 
that is claimed for it, and should it fail, it 
will be taken back, and tho MONEY RE-

Chester White Hogs are pure white, very 
solid, of good length, large si/^jd an I small 
honed, are wr\ squarely Imilt with heavy 
I'd be hams and shoulders, they are broad across 
the hack with short legs and head, are very 
thrifty and will grow to weigh from* 500 to 
to Hi mouths old. 
ti for a number of years en- 
gaged in breading and i shipping Chester 
White Pigs, we believe them to he the best ! 
adapted to general use of any known breed. 
The numerous testimonials given below, all 
attest this f i.-; . ; well ns the numerous pre- 
miums that have been awarded them at va- , 
rious Slate and County Fairs. Our pigs 
alone having taken over il.XO different pre- 
miums. over all the different breeds that 
have come in competition with them. XX e 
know that there are quite a number of -so 
eaiied" Chester Whites, sold by different 
breeders, that have seen ply any Chester 
XVhite blood in them. This is the class of 
hogs th t injure tho reputation ol the Ches- 
ter XX' bites, in some parts of the country. — 
Our C.i esters arc bred to produce thegreat- 
est amount of pork for the feed consumed, 
and we an* satisfied that they will make 
Fuller, more pork ill a shorter time, with less food 
than any known breed. Another item of 
great t'noir quiet habits and 
the fact is that thij can lie fattened tit any 
age. they are n’so*iroli!ie breeders, careful 
nurses. The sow- mostly rafting from 8 to

of any age. fri m '1 weeks to 18 months old. 
as wo always have a large and varied stock 
to sole r from. Our p : gs are earcfullv boxed

till our orders, we refer to the following tes-

( 'it: 9 . f.K XV n I t'K Pjqs. — We had the pious- 
ill e to see. on Saturday c'.vniifg last, a pair 
of Chester XVhite Pigs, said to he only two 
mouths old. just received from the estab- 
lishment ot N. P. Boyer ,v Co.. Purkesburg. 
Pa., by express. These pigs though just 
taken In m tile (age in which they had been 
confined for twelve days, were in line con-

lie permitted to say. were the tin -t of their 
snei ie ■ we have c\ or '"on. 

XX Itere the White   hosier is known, no 
other breed can compete with it. It i-

We are mueh pleased to see tic introduc-

greatly to the beiielit of dur people. The 
pigs referred to have already attracted nuu It 
attention — 4 $' real many persons have been 
to see them — and it is tlm unanimous opin- 
ion of every om*v that they cannot he ex- 
celled any when*. We. learn that, several of 
our citizens have already determined to 
supply them selves with this -fork; and wo 
hope the day is not distant when the long- 
legged. lank-jaw ed. uligatnr lin ed, now so 
prevalent in the country, will lie supplanted 
by this inlinitely sup- rior stock. XVe lake

sire lit rlher information, we direct them to 
Samuel F. Fightener or Benj. Gardtier.
