Kissing for Ihe Children.
Kisses in the mo'mning

Filling every corner
With a gleam of light;
Anl what happiness he iniss.,
Who, affection's impulses scorning,
Depqrts,'and gives no kisses'
To the children in thie morning.
WMany think it folly; .
Many say it's bliss;
Very muchldepending
On .who-e lips you kiss!
But the truth I am confessing,,
And I'd! have y,6u all take warning,
:If you covet any bleSsinig,
Kiss the children in 't6 morning!
Kisses in the evening

With atffetion's glow.

Surprising Developments.
The visitor to Florida just after s
the war, and the visitor of the t
present day, can but note the
marked difference which meets his
eye on every hand. In 1866, on
reaching Palatka, he could find no r
hotel, not even a boarding house, I
to lay his head and rest from the 1
fatigues of a tiresome- journey.-,
To-day he is transported to that
flourishing city in as magnificent
steamers as can be ft,,nd on any
waters in the United States. He c
finds at Palatka not only excellent I
boarding houses, but as large and
fashionable hotels as can be found
anywhere in the South. Promi-
nent among them may be men- I
tioned the "Putnam," kept by F.
H. ORVIS, Esq. The Putnam I
ha 86 rooms, besides its north
and east cottages, some distance C
from the main building. Electric
annunciators are attached to these
buildings and guests have the
same comfort ,s if occupying
rooms in the main building. Mr.
Orvis is the proprietor of the
Equinox House, Vt., and is one
of the most popular landlords in
America. The Putnam is the
only hotel in Florida that has had
a full run all winter. The Carle-
ton House is another neat' and
comfortable looking building and
has added greatly to the accom-
modatious of Palatka. It is kept,
by Mrs. Shally,"who fully under-
stands the business. The -im-
provement and increase of steam-
ers is as marked as that of the
hotels. This winter the Old Do-
minion line of Norfo~lk placed two
elegant steamers upon the St.
Johns-the Hampton and Gen
Sedgwick. The appointments of
these steamers are superb, and
both are manned by polite and
accommodating officers. Mr. Gal-
lagher, the purser of the Hamp-
tour, is particularly so, and all who
travel on board the Hampton are
witnesses of this fact. The im-
provements on both banks of the
river are equally noticeable, and
Jacksonville-well, it is destined
to be the metropolis of the South.
Railroad Speech.
Col. Robertson Topp, of Mem-
phis, Tenn., arrived in Ocala last
Saturday, as previously announc-
ed, and delivered a very histruc-
tive and able address on the pro-
ject of building a grand central
railroad through the peninsula of
our State, commencing at Live
Oak and terminating at Key West.
[How the Colonel will build the rail-
raod across the channel from the main.
land to the island of Kev West is a rid-
dle to me. Durin thie hurricane in 1873,
all the wharfs at Punta Ras-.a and Estero
river were washed away. A railroad
upon trestlies across the channel that will
resist one of the eycloons whiich are of
frequent occurrence in these attitudess ,
oan of right be called the eighth wonder
Of the world.--rinter's .Devil.]
The manner of building this
road was given to our readers in
our last issue and explained by
Cot. To~pp ,in his address. His
,proposition is to memoralize Con-
gress to cede all the lands of the
Federal Government to the State;
throw these lands upon the mark-
Sets and with the proceeds derived
therof'om construct the proposed
, road.: Col. Topp dwelt upon the

importance of this road as a na-
tional enterprise; its savings'to
commerce by giving quick transit
to perishable articles, and its vital
importance to our government in
case of foreign wars, and its im-
m tense local importance in devel-
oping and- fostering the fruit and
3 sugar interests of this State in
) quantities large enough to supply
I thl entire country, which we are
now compelled to import from for-
r eigncountries and pay for in coin,
- without an exchange of products.
The address was listened to atten-
r tively and we hope it will stimulate
s our people to some action in the
t matter.
0 The bill proposes the establish-
s ment of several colleges on the line
e of the road, and Col. Topp made
n several very excellent and sug-
n gestive remarks on the subject of
male and female education, which
were received with demonstrations
- of approval by the ladies and gen-
. gentlemen in attendence. The
)f Colonel made some good hints on
e the want of energy of our popula-
s tioe, which we hope will be re-
12 membered and acted on. We re-
e gret our limited space prohibits us
& from commenting more" t large
t. upon his speech.

The people of the interior haye
with few exceptions, made no ef
fort to advertise their valuable sec-
tion. Nevetheless many invalids
and settlers are constantly arriving
and are agreeably surp iised to find
t he interior so heal Ihfuil, so fertile,
and, every way, so much more at-
tractive than they had anticipa-
ted. Theh counties of Marion,
Alachua, and Sutter present as
great indoceinents to the indus-
trious irurnigiant and to tlhe inva-
lid as can he found. A4 hor the
invalid who is not past all .iopeof
recovery, there is the highest med-
ical authority for assrting that
no other section in the world
equals themin erior counties. In
his report on the climaite of Fl,.r-
ida, as published in the L,,ndon
Times, Surgeon Gereral Star says:
"After a thorough study of- cli-
mate in' different parts of the
world, arid a recent stay of more
than two months in Florida. I am
satisfied that the weight of argu-
ment is in favor of that State. 1
am prepared to swake my, reputa-
tion that in the interior of this
State, on the high, dryh pine lands,
is to be found as pture, balmy, in-
vigorating, and healing an atmos-
plere as in any other part of the
globe. Tt e peninsula is nanow,
and the warm breezes from the
Atlantic and the Ghilf,, mingled
with the soft and delicious atImos-
phere of the pinue forests, give to the
conntral part of the Staatea pre-emi-
nence for health that no other
part of the world I know of p&es-
erts." ,Other evidence, from equf-
ally high authority, and to the,
same effect, could be given, but,
perhaps, interested parties will
fi,,d the most satifactory proof of
the truth of these statements by
coming and seeing for themselves.
To such there are two routes open
-one by railroad from Savannah
and, other points northward, or
from Jacksonville and Fernandina
at the east to Gainesville, in Ala-
chna county; from thence, 'by
mail-coach, to Ocala, in Marion
county, and to Tampa on the
western coast. The other route
'and probably the best lor those
desirous of visiting Marion county,
is from Jacksonville by way of the
St. Johns and Ocklawaha rivers
to Silver Spring. The latter is
in the centre of MaHion county,
and is only five miles fram its.
county site-Ocala. -

The Jewish rabbi of the Te'.m-
ple, Dr. Gottheil, has retorted up-
on the Baptist conference of cler-
gymen who have been engaged in
discussing how they shall "reach
the Jews." The rabbi warns the
Baptists that if they desire to.reach
the Jews, they need not go to the
criminal classes, or among the
drunkards, or to the haunts of der
bauchery, or to the prisons. He
tells them that' they need experi-
ence no difficulty in reaching, the
Jews, for they can be found at
, their homes, where they will cour-
, teously receive" any caller. The
,learned rabbi handles the Baptist
project in his own way, when he
> "What has the Christian wolrd
l to offer us Jews instead of what
', we have? Have the Christian
\world come to us, and offer red-us
,comfort, and endeavored to make
[us see the beauty of their lives and
Their religion by their kindness to-
[ ward us? Have they offered shelter
to us, the poor scattered ones of
i the earth, whom they now pity so
1 greatly. Never have we, seen any-
,thing of that sort, and never has
; any such spirit been shown us.
[For ages the Jew was .called an in-
t fidel. and treated like one: but

t even when he lay in the dust, he
I still proclaimed his religion."
a After having studied Rabbi
r Gottheil's reply to the Baptist in-
' quiry, we are disposed to say. that
t; when next the Baptist conference
' of clergymen would find out how
I to reach and convert the Jews,
i they ongt to send for this bold rab-
, bi and question him on the sub-
, ject.-New York Sun.

to the development of the county.-
'Among others, may be mentioned the
Marshall: and Bell plantations on the
Ocklawaha river. In former days one
of 'these places contained the largest
sugar works in Florida, and we hope
to see this important branch of agri-
culture again revived. Persons ilho
possess more land than they can handle
to advantage and'desire to see our
county settled by industrious and
wealthy" citizens had better consult
with Mr. Ddunni, and we feel assured
that these consultations will result
beneficially, not only to the present
owners of the land, but to the com-
munity at large.

` Desirable Settler.
Mr. E. C. Antlmny, an intelligent and
wealthy citizen of Muncie, Indiana, after
traveling over the greater portion of
Florida has selected $pr county for his
future home. The county 6n, con-
gratulate itself upon the acquisition of
an energetic citizen, who proves al-
ready bylhis works that lie has the wel-,
fare of his new home at heart. We
are glad to state that a number of Mr.
Anthony's friends have already been
induced to follow his example and
settle, amongst us. With such a class
of settlers the prosperity of our county
is guaranteed. ; ; ~:.\ ; ,:
Mr. Anthony has, bought the Jacob
and John Lei[ner ,places, containing
about 640 acres of very fine and fer-
tile land, situated about 8 miles north
of Ocala. Mr. Benj. Harter has bought
the Reuben Roberts place, also a val-
uable tract of land. These gentlemen
intend to buy up other plantations and
willbe followed in the fall of the year
by a number of families.
Mr. Anthony is a gentlemen of
large means and intends to engage
largely in the cultivation of frfits. He
and his friends seem highly pleas-
ed with their new homes and have al-
ready commenced to improve their
farms. Some of the parties have lo-
cated in town and will commence in
various businesses.
