FOOTSTEPS AT THIE DOOR.
As we know familiar voices,
Every near and dear one's call,
Ccttifitg tli- ,igh the silent chamber,
Waking echoes in the hall;
So with instinct all unerring,
Ever strengthening, more and more,
We can read the varied language
Of the footsteps at the door !
Grandpa's filtering tread, now heavy
With the weight of fruitful years,
Nearing yonder golden city-
Almost through this vale of tears;
Steadfast feet that never loitered,
Bravely going on before ;
Bye-and by we'll miss their music
Precious footsteps at thp door.
Then the patters of the children,
Happy darlings out and in,
Like the butterflies and sunbeams,
With no thought of care or sin !
Little feet that need sure guiding
Past the pitfalls on the shore.
Lest they turn aside to mischief ;
Blessed footsteps at the door !
Then the matron, glad and cheery.
Hears her good man drawing nigh ;
And the children hear the mother ,
As her busy footsteps fly ;
Household music We all hear it
While we love it more and more,
And we hope to welcome with it'
Angel footsteps at the door !

The Doctor's Story.
Twenty-five years ago, I began the
practice of medicine in one of the minor
towns in eastern Pennsylvania. My sole
capital consisted of a hard earned diplo-
ma~ uiv medical library--a :niall on..---
and thirty-six d,-ll:ii-s in imoiey.- -rTr
established practition er was a geutleiji i,
quite along in years : %ho, being desi-
rous of withdrawing from practice, furn-
ished me with much assistance, as well
as encouragement.
Thus, happily relieved of some obsta-
cles which bar the way of confidence in
a young physician, and successful enough
in my first cases to increase faith in Dr.
Bigelow's recommendation, it transpired
that in a year's time I had a good prac-
tice in town and considerable in the
surrounding country.
Among the families who came under
my notice more particularly, was one by
the name of Harridge, who lived on a
farm at the suburbs of the town. There
were two brothers, an aged, infirm fa-
ther, the house-keeper, and a young girl
who assisted in the house-hold duties.
My first professional callwas upon the
old gentleman, who was fast declining
under the fatal workings of a malignant
cancer. There was little I could do for
him. except; to ease something of the,
sharpness of suffering and smooth-as it
were-his passage to the grave.
The privileges of the profession are
necessarily such, that the physician, if
he be anything of an observer, can hard-
ly fail to know more of the inner work-
ing of the different family circles into
which he is thus unceremoniously admit-
ted, than an outsider- excepting per-
haps the spiritual adviser, and here I
have my doubts. In my visits to the
afflicted father, I very natu rally made
some discoveries, and the first Lt these
came in the form of a surprise. On my
first visit in the noontide heat of a long
,- :..-, the houre-keeper,
Mrs. Erkine, sent i nto the spin
Dorothy," she said, will 0.. .
drink of cool, fresh but termilk." -lu a
I found the spring house, a delicious
cool place, with a stone pavement bisect-
ed by a miniature canal, just above
which, resting upon narrow slats a row
of earthen crocks stood brimming with
golden cream.
But Dorothy was my surprise! Ima-
gine if you can Correggio's Magdalen "
turned into a dairymaid.
There was the same cast of features,
heavy but clear cnt, with a touch of pen-
sive sadness about the small ripe month.
The same large magnificent development
and symmetry of form. Her skin was
fine and smooth in texture, and of pure,
opaque whiteness; the bright, red blood
beneath just revealing itself at her lips
Her eyes showed only thoughtful reti-
cence than open frankness


She wore a short loose fitting gown of
some blue stuff, coming half way below
her knees, and displaying shapely pro.
portions of limbs, and slender bare feet.
Over broad shoulders she had piunneI s
large white kerchief, which crossed over
her bosom, left bare toa point her beau-


tiful white, throat. An abundance of
dazzling yellow hair was wound careless-
ly around her head.
With round arms bared to the shoul-
der, Dorothy stood stirring a jar of
cream.
There was nothing coquettish, no sign
of eons'ious heovty~i^mer demeanor, am
she saw me standing in admiring con-
templation at the door.
From my first glance it had seemed
like some rare old picture stepping out
from lits frame, and when she spoke, the
delusion did not vanish! I
Did Mrs. Erskine send you for a
drink of milk, sir?" and as collectedly as
she had been perusing her former task,
she deftly filled me a bowl, from one of
the brimming crocks.
It is frequently argued that there is
always that in the voice of a person
which is a sure indicative of character.
The deep, full tones of this girl, gave
out the ring of a grand nature, albeit
rude and untutored :
"You must be quite proud of your
dairy, Dorothy ?" I said, half inquiringly.
"Yes, sir, as much as anything !"
There was more in the expression than
in the words, a lurking discontent.
Yet you sometimes find your work
hard no doubt."
"Hard and the superb shoulders
rose in a shrug of disdain.
"I've health and strength What were
they given me for but to earn my bread ?"
Simultaneous with word and gesture,
came to me a sudden, subtle cognizance
which generated and renewed a graver
interest concerning thp future of this
girl.
"Well, Dorothy," I replied kindly,
you talk like a sensible girl. Don't get
foolish notions in your head There I've
hindered you long enough this busy
day ?"
Not at all, sir!"
I went back to the house, curious to
learn something about l)orothy's history.
1l.-I-pr. i2 c-wen1.an- J wn. Taken
at an (-u4v age 'rom an orphan asylum,
she had been brought up by ,~ --.... -
kine, who was herself childless. Hemr
home record was that 4 a modest virtue,
and unpretending exclence.
It would be a fact stranger than fic-
tion, for two young apd single men to
remain long under th< same roof with a
creature as gifted yiti physical charms
as Dorothy, without a sort of rivalry,
however covert, springing up between
them.
I found the rule hdd true in this case.
The younger was a wild, reckless lad,
very brusque in manner, and showing in
the presence of the girl, little but indif-
ference, as far as a third person could
observe; but while an occasional word
or glance from him sent a scarlet flush
across Dorothy's cheek, she was, in her
indifferent way, perfectly free and at
ease in the society v4f his elder brother.
The elder on hisipart, made no secret
of the ardent flame ; his eyes following
with undisguised ;-dmiration her move-
ments about the house.
I had on such occasions., several times
intercepted dark, threatening looks be-
tween the brothers.
At last the old gentleman passed quietly
away and my visits to the farm ceased for
a time. I heard indirectly and at inter-
vals, rumors of troubles between the two
Harridges. The conduct of the younger
was disolute and irregular to a degree
that often provoked the anger of the
elder, and occasional strife, and even
violence between them.
The temper of the elder was as little
under control, as the conduct of the
younger, and in short, they lived very'
unhappily together.
At last, one winter's night when the
ground was covered wi) '-_ from the
1punger brother abscU"e than usual
violenc'.i'r a luarrly, t -re than usual
traced in the snow o a considerable dis-
tance; nor were there any steps besides
his own.
All possible inquiry was set on foot
but no information was elected as to
either the direction or distance of his
flight.
A clue to this strange disappearance
came about whet gossips began to whis-
per strange neys concerning Dorothy ;
and it was not. long urtil my presence
was again required at the Harridge
SFarm.
This time, a n|w life came in; a feeble
life, that ilickemld a little and went out,
Though not uuini the happy mother had
bestowed upon her baby boy the name
Sof the father vIo had deserted it and
her, Eichard Il:irridge.


After this latC trial, John Hlarridge be-
came a soured, mor,,se man, and shun,,
ning the society of neighbors and friends-
lived almost tl life of a recluse.
-r In a little ibre than-w year after the


departure of his brother-during which,
no tiding of the absent had been recei-
ved-John HIarridge sold out the farm,
and removed to a distant State. I also,
found a more lucrative practice in a
neighboring city, and for a considerable
period lost all note of events in N-.
Full ten years after my removal, busi-
ness calling me in near vicinity, I made
a short run over, for the mere pleasure
of looking up old acquaintances.
I had no sooner driven into town than
my attention was attracted by a promis-
cuous crowd clustered around the en-
trance to the town-house ; who seemed
laboring under the greatest excitement,
and were loud !in their execrations
against some man as the murderer of
his brother.
Mingling with the outsiders I soon
learned the cause of the agitation.
The subsequent tenant of Harridge
Farm having undertaken some altera-
tions in the house and 'surrounding
grounds,'a human skeleton was dug up
under circumstances so conclusive that
it was without doubt declared to be that
of Richard Harridge.
Popular clamor was raised, and a jury
immediately impannelled to investigate
the case ; and on the strength of several
important discoveries, a constable had
been dispatched for the arrest of John
Harridge and the bringing him back for
trial.
Being informed that the jury were
then sitting, I made my way into the
court, which was already crowded by an
eager and excited audience,
The prisoner, worn, haggard, and aged
twenty years in the last ten, was sitting
in the box, with his head bowed upon
his hauds.
A number of witnesses had been
sworn, all of whom testified to the known
looseness of the young arridge's con-
duct, and of the strife it had occasioned
between the brothers-particularly re-
garding the Miastter of Dorothy Havens.
I found that two eminent surgeons
had been suipiemMd to inspect the re-
information as to their characte~efff"A -
been obtained.
Curiosity alone induced me to request
the coroner to be allowed the privilege
of examining the bones, which were con-
tained in a basket .at the further end of
the hall. They were immediately placed
upon the table, and I proceeded to dis-
pose them in their natural order.
After a brief examination, I privately
requested the attendance of the medical
men, who had already given their opin-
ion; both of whom, without delay,
answered the summons. We then made
out jointly a trrief statement, which was
secretly put into the hands of the coun-
cil for defence. Meanwhile the prose-
cuting attorney continued his examina-
tions of witnesses.
Mrs. Sarah Erskine was called upon
the stand. Being sworn, she testified as
follows:
"Lived as housekeeper in family of
accused for three years, before and after
his father's death. Knew of trouble be-
tween the brothers. Hard words had
passed between them the night before
Richard's disappearance. H ad no sus-
picion at the time of anything wrong
concerning his absence. Never thought
John Harridge a revengeful man, though
hot and hasty in his temper."
What was the particular object
which occasioned this last dissention?"
questioned the opposing council.
"The subject was Dorothy Havens.
John Ha, riddle had asked permission to
address her with a proposal of marriage.
Had wished him every success. lIaving,
afterwards discovered certain unfortuun-
ane i,-.--i between Dorothy
duty to inform him. A bitter quarrel
followed between Richard and John,
which ended in Richard's disappearance
next morning."
"Did John Harridge, in your presence
make threats of violence which would
endanger the life of his brother?" asked
the examining attorney
"No actual threat. Once he said,
'Get out of my sight! I could almost
kill you where you stand"'' To which
Richard replied' "Kill me! well, strike
me if you darel You've wanted to do it
this long time !"
This point of the evidence, given with
such evident reluctance, did much to
Sstr'ngthen public opinion against, the
prisoner. The prosecuting attorney
continued his examination.
"What was the termination of the


qua: rrel?"
"Richard Harridge rushed angrily up-
stairs, and John went to the barn. I
heard no further words between them.
Will the witness," continued the
State attorney, "relate the succeeding
events of the evening, as relating to John


and Richard Harridge ?"
The witness hesitated, glanced reluct-
antly at John Harridge, and appealingly
at the court.
"Remember Sou are under oath,"
cautioned the State attorney.
A moment more of hesitation, and the
witness proceeded-
I dislike to repeat what I must, for
though I alu as confident now as at the
time, that John Harridge never struck a
blow at the life of his br,,ther, yet what
I am about to relate bears hard on the
evidence against an innocent man.
"Go on," interrupted the attorney im-
patiently.
In a short time," continued the wit-
ness. "John came hurriedly in from
the stables and told me to make haste
and call Richard, for the roan horse was
down in a fit. I left him getting to-
gether some remedies, and when I came
down with Richard he had gone out
.again. I saw neither of them for about
an hour, and then John came in with
blood on his hands and clothes, and his
frock all torn up into bandages, as he
said to bind the horse where they bled
her."
At this stage of proceedings the ex-
citement was intense.
"Proceed!" again exclaimed the State's
Attorney.
"From that time", faltered the
witness. "j never isaw Richard Har-
ridge again, John told me he went from
the stable up towards town-yet sulky,
and in a pet. In the night, his room
was entered, and all his valuables taken
out of the house. The grapevines below
his chamber were pulled partially from
the trellis, and his footmarks were plain
in the snow, and mn:rked by the curious
nails in his boots. I know the mare
haAdJeen bled, for I exaneiue her my
self the next morningg"
The witness left the stand, with such
a look of remorse upon her aged coun-
tenance, as if confident that she had
sworn away a human-life. The State's
attorney after summing up the evidence
-,i"W'.'"y -l. e for the State .t


The opposing counsel rose to open fie
defence. ''May it please your Honor
and Gentlemen of the Jury," he said "I
have a few words to say in regard to
what the able counsel of the State has
proven before you to ,day; yet we pro-
pose to prove to you, upon undisputable
testimony, that the remains now in court
are not those of the accused's brother.
"Call Dr. Maynard."
I took the stand, and being duly
sworn, commenced as follows:
"Knew, personally, both John and
Richard Harridge; was medical attend-
ant in the family, iup t) the decease of
Dorothy Havens. Richard IIarridge was
a tall and slender strippling, full five,
feet ten in height. Does any one in
court gainsay this fact?"
The fact was assented to by the State's
attorney.
"In reconstructing the bones of the
skeleton," I continued, "supposed to be
that of Richard Harridge, I find that
they represent a person short in stature,
while living, not to exceed four feet five-
From the obliteration of the sta es of
the scull, and the- worn down state of
the teeth, they must have belonged to'
an aged person. Furthermore, in replac-
ing the bones of the trunk, I find them
to be nunistakably ithse of a female.
These medical gentlemen present stand
ready to corroborate my testimony in
every respect."
The court held breathless as I left the
stand, while the two surgeons inmmed-
iNtely following verified my testimony.
Without rising from the box, a un-
aunimous verdict of Not guilty," came
I need hardly add t.at a--n
man received the "amnende honorable,"
in the shape of an apology in which the
coroner heartily joined.
It was afterwards proved beyond all
doubt that the spot where the skeleton
was found, had been formerly the site
of a large gravel pit, in which hoards of
Indians were wont to assemble, and oc-
casionly to bury their dead, in corrobor-
atiou of which, other skeletons were
subsequently exhumed.
This imrrative, while it strikingly ex-
hibits the tf-llaiblle and uncertain nature
of circu:nstantild evidence, aflbrds a'sc

EDUCATION FOR THE FARMER.

Every Agricultural paper in thi
United Sitaters aiil1 Canada is advo
eating a high-i-r standt'rd of education
for the fartni,-r. In almost every stat
of the Union, igric'iu.ltural schools an
colleges have been established, and th
people of all classes and condition
approve of. them. Also in Canada
V-pecially the Province of' Ontar,
dluring the past few years efforts hav
,be-en made to develop more fully th
agriculrtiir r.' .-urces of the country
aud place, tlh interests of the farme
on a higher sc.-e.
It has long h:en thonilhit indispen
sable, that thi, 'atiiou.s ])rofessionu
men, mi- rh-,! utI., and scientific men
sishould have a classic education, Few
could aspir., to high pf'liti,:al di,'tinc
S ion wit lhoit this education aid while
the fonindation of our political system
S rests upon the farmer and mechanic
1vho thoiulight of educating them, We
are now beginning to look back upoi
this long neglected b:rancl of edueation
with surprise. The farmer, above al
other occupations should be the mos
extensively t.ducated ; so that h(
might be the more enable to decipher
more clearly the great hieroglyphic
problems of the Book of Naturo, which
is kept continually before his eyes
ind in support of such we would
assign out of many, the three following
'*e-o ns.
1st. The farmer should be educated
to take any rplaee in our political
government which he may be called to
and which is too largely represented
by pr:fs-,ionals who eompinaitivelh
:;now but little of, and care less
about the interest, of the farmer.
2nd. He should be educat.-d in th(
scieneo of his occupation, which in it
true sense, is tie liglhest, broadest, and
deepest of all sciences-and because
his oe,-uat0ion demands it.
3rd. He should be educated because
L j is a bian,-nature's true nobleman
because he hAs an immortall mind,'
sise.-e. til .le of receiving and enjoying
'knowledge, and it, is essential to his
(rnovinenjt And highest human per.
fection--and because ,.wmo:g men the
farmer is generally looked upon ia a
false ipos-ition, and below the standard
he is entitled to, and should occupy.

ECCLESIASrICAL HARMONY.

deinicnations, alth,-ugh dihiering onu
certain forms of Church di.cipl inF
and Scriptural interpretation, should
in themselves one with nriother exhi-
1iit lodel examples of social fellow-
ship and mutual feelings of charity
and 'good will. Formerly a wider
range existed between them as well as
between the different congreLations,
arising to a great extent from bigoted
and jealous 'feelings, aroused into ac-
tiodi by the gross animal nature of
Christian humanity. In great Britain
as well as in some of her Colonies, a
change is apparently being effected
for the better, both among Chlrgyvme:i
and their congregations; and many
Vlwho in dayvs of yore stood at the en-
trance of the Church grounds exclaim-
ing, "Hitherto shalt thou come, and
no furtherr" are now opening the di-
vision gates to their fellow-workers in
some othr. part of the Vinevyard of
Christ, a"1 inviting them to enter in
and sup it'i .them. An instance of
,,was noted recently in a para-
graph which appeared in the Hamp-
shire Telegraph and Ess.x ('Chiruinicl('
(Englandi)-to the effect. that the Rev.
Mr. of St. John's Episcopal
Church, Wool \ ich, had invited a bro-
ther worker in the Vinevard, a Non-
conformist minister, to his pulpit, to
which assent was given; and that the
service was performed by each taking
part, wlich appears to have been mu-


fually appreciated, as the audieiee on
that oceasi,,n was a very large ole.

I having its origin in the pockets of for-

health amid the beauties of a warn:

I al pleasure seekers, and a few in search
e of quiet rest for their wearied and toil
worn minds, either from business or

also, and leaving notliing undone, if
possible, that could be done to enhance

beautifully God Save the Queen."
Pen and pencil would fail to describe
the various and beautiful decorations of
the Town. On the several arches and
elsewhere were numbers of very appro-
priate mottoes ; but the richest and
most ingeniously deig'ne-d piece of ar-
tistic workmanship was the SUBMARINE
AaCH.. This arch must' have cost a vast
amount of labor! Several divers were
S(ver a week in procuring the material
from the waters. Capt. Win. E. Meyers,

liithlvy credited by the public for the in-
geni nus design and the ,arry'i n out and
ctinplt-ting of it so aii.'irabiy. It was
quite a novelty in itself, and was so at-
tractive as to cause the Princess to stop
when she came to it and for a short
time examine and admire it. Its form
nation consisted chiefly of various sea
weeds, green sea-tresses, sea-fans, clSm.,
scallop and other shA.ll, muscles, cork,
coral, sea-rods, etc. In the front of the
main pillars were niches of Gothic form,
in which were placed two fountains from
which, in sprinkling jets, streams of pure
Florida water were gracefully ejected.
On the south frontal curve of this arch
was the motto "Welcome Royal Lady,"
on the other side "We Love thee."
Leaving the .Nrket. Square the party
then moved onward through the town,
and after passing alonm several streets,
lined on either side ,with immense
crowds of cheeriumg and excited specta-
tors, they at length proceeded to the
Market Wharf, where Her Royal Eigh-

MR, EDIToR.--Can you inform me what
has become of our fast steamer, I mean
George Whitney's boat? That noble
craft with her large passenger accommo-
dations, her freight room, strawberry
apartments, and running at 18 knots per
hour.
AWe saw her in the distance; we
watch-'dher as she neared our shores ;
and also when she was cordially welcom-
ed by the House of Assembly ; but with
the greatest sorrow we beheld her bom-
barded out of the llonirnihle Council
Ch.,ilbi':r. When we saw this Castle of
strength with its 9 guns pointed at her,
we wviloder-id not; but we 'do wonder
when we see the Royal GAZETTE, former-
Slyher firm and faithful frieid- now leaves
her, as Shaktespeare- said-" Weary and
old to the mercy of a rude stream, that
must forever hide her." So thinks the
new Editor of the G.zIrTTE. (Who1ev1r he
miniy be.) lie has it seems aldopt.-d a

ste:umer., wl\-hiii' i. tu go ,nily 10 knots an

SSTIEOLAH
MN. EDITOi.--Certain quest ions have
lately been agitating tihe public mind.
Giants have gone outto, show themselves
as at othertimies, and as a consequence,
the pillars of delusive temples are begin-
ning to tremble. Bermuda ias moved
with the rest of tlhe world. Much that
was familiar to our .sight has gone down
below the western horizon. Strange
constellations appe.ir, even comets are
seen-wanderers from the OUTSIDE world.
During that week a new star burst upon
the firmament, doubtless, "to light and
glory, born." A pamphlet bearing' the
name .Shh)iodii" has just been publish-
el. It represents one Sopher as return-
ing from a visit to his lady1 love, as he
passes the parish -r.v,-.%iard the hum-
jmingof his nmadri-'tl is :uddeuly stopped
by the Il.e-irance (if ghostly forms.
They have met in mighty conclave to
discuss a matter in which they have
sympathy with thos- albive, ground.
From them Sopher le rtL.s, that Bermuda
could long boast of a state church. It
was not always Episcopal in its form,
owing to Pur'itanic itiflen(es, but it was
s ill a state church. By legislation the
Episcopal church was sepa.rate.i from
the stoite.. It became a fr,.e church
standing in' exactly the same relation to
the state as the other churches in the
land. The Episcopal church arrogated
to herself that power which makes her,
if need be, independent of the Bishops
as well %asof the Government. The Epis-
copal church has become free. Its pos-
session of the parish graveyards is held
upon the ground of establishment. This
establishment is shown to have no longer
any existence. .Hence the claim upon
the graveyards is not valid. This line of
argument is presented to the public for
the first time. It "is admirably worked
out. Having read the work you feel
that the, author has accomplished what
he attempted. So conclusive are his ar-
guiments. that he leaves the reader con-
vinc.ed, that the idea of an established
Episcopal church in Bermuda at the pre-
sent date is something for which it
would he childishness to contend. The
work is ,i'ven in a somewhat. dramatic
form. This n,.'vel future is well sustain-
ed throu-ghout. The writer- style is vigo-
rous. His points are cle,'arly made.
The pamphlet ha- e,. id0-rtli been printed
abroad, so .that the author could not
have the opIportuLity ''f. reading! the
proofs,, when this is remembered the
number of t.yp 'r'q lhieLl errors will

SMn.EnEiT'>iR.T Mi. "Tickletobv"--the
new critic c>rrespudent of the COLO.isr,
whoever lie is, whether in or out of the
b dy, appears in last week's issue of
that piper, to feel deeply insulted in be-
ing told by me. in the NEw Eju, that it
was bad taste and rnuh out of place,
p.articulh.ly at this time, to. characterize
pr rather caricatire some of our respect-
able Arierican visitors as Fenian advent-
ur-rs, etc. I till say, (and I have the
public to back me,) that it showed a
lack of .taste and common sense. But
the host ridiculous feature of his false
assertions, is that he has mistaken my
MARK by calling the NEW Ea 'to account
for what I wrote. Let me tell that
same fellow, that the Nr.w ERA man and
myself-I mean Bill, (that's my name,)
are two distinct independent human be-
ings and therefore I feel a sense of
honesty in fathering the whole responsi-
bility. as the Editor had nothing to do in
the matter whatever. The following s







THETI .iVE ERS.


the paragraph referred to :
SBy-the-bye, is it not a good joke to
Find the NEw ERA reading a contempor-
iu'vy a lecture upon good taste. I shall
be quite prepared to find -that paper
tre atiug us to a little preachment on or-
thography and syntax, for it is gradual-
ly improving in both those particulars.
No one is so severe upon a fault as a
reformed sinner."
I myself, BILL, have no pretentious
conceit in my grammer, but I think I
know enough to say that "Tickletoby"
should not. attempt to find fault until he
has made himself acquainted with these
"particulars" as he terms them. I shall
refer only to a few of the many errors he
committed; and would ask him, what
does he mean b) READING a contempor-
ary a lecture-I did not READ my re-
"marks, I WROTE them-and further : it
was not a NEW ERA contemporary, but
a correspondent, I found fault with.
Treating uss"-This plural pronoun
us, sounds inconsistently with the big
singular pronoun I, that stands at the
head of the sentence. Pert aps Tickle-
toby" is a singular sort of single and
complex body-such as Editors claim to
be. lie this'as it may it smacks strongly
of Printer's ink : perhaps he is some
ex-printer's devil. Little preachment"
-I would, venture to say that there is
.no such word as *" re uhumient" in the
w h1ole English language. I,have exam-
ined all the Lexicographies I could get
and failed to find the word. Not only
this paragraph, but all the others of his
article are marred with errors ; as for
instance he uses the word TRYo-no such
word extant; TYRO, perhaps he means.
Also, IMPARALLELLED-no such word; un-
parallelled, he intended; but, poor fel-
low, his orthography is defective. The
word WOULD he spells wouid ; and the
word CLASS he spells classes, and also
though for THROUGH. He says, "that on
the arrival of one of the British regi-
ments that landed here from a trans-
port that LAID in Murray's Anchorage,
before the men BEGUN to disembark, the
order was given to 'load with ball car-
tridge,' etc. The word LAID should
be LAY, and BEGUN should be either HAD
BEGUN or BEGAN. Tickletoby's" style of
using verbs and participles is notion ac-
cordance with the rules of modern gram-
mar. He uses incorrectly the name St.
Georges, four times, with the mark of
the possessive case, and once simply St.
George. The preposition TO he spells
with two o's-thusly TOO.
These will be sufficient to show how
far he is acquainted with those "par-
ticulars" he accuses the NEW ERA of.
Well, I think I hear him say as an ex-
cuse, "Oh, they are typographical er-
rors." The same plea may be applied
in defence of the NEW ERA, or my "'Ram-
bling Talk." But more likely he finds
fault because the NEW ERA does not spell
jail as gaol or goal ; almanac with a k
stuck to the end of it; and the words
labor, favor, honor, etc., with the old u,
besides other words of that sort. But
7 Tickletoby" appears to belong to' the'
old school of 200 years ago; or, for
aught I know, he may have been school-
teacher to Noah's family in the Ark.

Sent Order of Good Templars was

a from ",Star of Hope Loyal Lodge,"
', SQmerset. The'" AAnniver ary Hymn"
",; lowed by a selection of glees, :songs,
readings, etc., formed the programme
for the evetinog, al.l of which were well
Sredered. Refreshments, all that:
S o ild be wished for, were supplied,,

usuMl votes of thanks, having been

JAs? It is somewhat flattering to us
that several of the Canadian papers
have published our verses entitled A
Poetic Welcome." The BRITISH WHIG
of Kingston, Ont., one of the oldest
and most ably-conducted papers in
the whole Dominion of Canada, kind-
ly introduces the verses with the fol-
lowing paragraph: "A. L. Spedon, so
favorably regarded in Canada for his
gifts of poesy,' and whose ill-health
drove him to Bermuda, met the Prin-
cess Louise upon her recent arrival in
that Colony, with a charming Poetic
Welcome. We extract the verses;
they are full of the flowing rythm and
poetic fancy which characterizes Mr.
Spedon's poems generally."
Thanks to our old friend the WHIG.

A Derangement of the
Liver
THE CAUSE OF DISEASE IN THE

STOMACH, KIDNEY
And Nervous System,
-.-
Below will be found a brief Sum-
mary of a Lecture upon the Liver, delivered
before the Eclectic College of Medicine by
11. J. HAYgBoK.
THE LIVER has been known as the
great BLOOD-MAKER and BLOOD
PURIFIER of the Circulation. From its
size and spongy structure, it plays a most
important part in the animal economy, as
regards assimilation and nutrition. Food
taken in the mouth and acted unon by the
digestive organs or the stomach is con-
verted into Glucose and Peptone, and in
these forms enters the Portal vein. Ilere,
by the action of the liver, these substances
are converted into a form of sugar and
pass out of the liver by-a large vein, called
the Hepatic vein, into the general circula-
tion. The new material now formed serves
two purposes, viz. : the maintenance of
heat in the body and assisting in the cel-
griowth of the system.
Dr. Murchison says, "The composition
of bile and its secretion is very complex.
It is constantly being secreted by the
liver, and, increasing suddenly before eat-
iug, gradually decreases us soon as the ap-
petite is satisfied and feeding ceases." Now
if this most important organ of the body
become torpid. or the ;assage of bile in-
terfered with, emaciation and disease en-
sue. I note eight marked peculiar riiies
that Dow occur, and which we all knw, <'f:
1. The patient complains of a
feeling of weight and fullness of
the epigastrium.
2. listention of the stomach
and bowels by wind.
3. Heart-burn.
4. A feeling of weariness, pains
in the limbs and great sleepiness
after meals.
5. A bad taste in the mouth,
especially in the morning, and
furred tongue.
6. Constipation, with occasion-
al attacks of diarrhoeo.
7. Headache in front of head.
8. Depression of spirits atnd
great melancholy, witli lassitude
and a disposition to leave every-
thing for to-morrow.
All of the above symptoms 'go to slow
functionial derangememnt of the liver ; and
now comes the great importance of iin
error tmadet as to the condition of tire pa-
tint. Hle should iinneitdaatlv piro iec
himself with a LIVER STIMULANT,
tie most common frmI of *bicda is a Pill
I)aily experivca'e shows that this. whoe,
the Pill is coimpoitieded lroperly, is the
readiest mfo(le of inciting and promitiiig
the action of the liver., nid ian be alhnosi
always relied on. I have devoted ianym
years of my life, as many of you now vbe
fore me know, to comipiuniling a Pill that
will act readily 1 lnd systematicailh as !v
Bilious Remedy. 1 '1o not believe in
gieat purgatives, and1 thereforere have made
a Pill, one of which is an active ani
thorough dose. I have called it

Farm and Household.
Any good food that a cow will eat
with relish will make good milk, and
the quantity will within certain limits
bear a close relation to the quantity
of food consumed.
Horse owners differ as to the practical
value of the check-iein. The trouble
is not in the horse being checked, but
in the manner of checking him. The
horse's mouth is tender.
To CLEAN SILVER.-Never prtl a
particle of soap on silver ware, if you
would have it retain its lustre. Soap-
suds make it look like pewter. Wet
flannel cloth in kerosene, dip it in dry
whiting, and rub the plated ware. Let
it dry on it, and then polish with a
chamois skin.
THE FEET.-Never wear rubbers in
dry weather or for any length of time
in any weather, but change your shoes
and dry the feet, wet by the retained
perspiration. Let your boots and
shoes be plenty large, and thus avoid
corns and discomfort. Tight boots
retard the circulation and produce a
coldness. Never go to bed with cold
or damp feet.
Apples stimulate the appetite of a
horse or a cow wonderfully. The
ration should be made small at first.
It produces a great flow of milk in
cows, and gives to the horse a fine
glossy coat. Apples are excellent for
fattening cattle, counteracting the
tendency to feverish action engen-
dered by corn meal, and giving a fine
flavor to the beef.
Baked Apples.-Buy a small tin
apple-corer; core with it as mamy
apples as you want, without peeling
them;, set them on a tin dish; place
this in a hot oven, having first filled
up the vacancies left by your surgery
with the best sugar. Let them bake
till they are well done. Take then
out, and if you do not know what to
do next,, call in your nearest and best
friend for further advice.
Hogs when nearly fat are liable to
have disordered stomach through over
feeding, refusing their food. The best
antidote for this is charcoal. If the
charcoal is taken from the stove when
cold there will probably be ashes taken
up jat the same time, these will not
hurt the hog should he eat a portion
of them. Charcoal is best taken from
an open fire-place. It would be well
to have on hand at all times a barrel
or two of charcoal. Charred corn cobs
or charred corn have a good effect.
There is nothing better than theso
substances where hogs have the scours.
USEFUL IDEAS.--The Paris "Figaro"
gives the following advice to gArden-
ers :-Do not waste your orange peel,
but make an incision round it midway
and remove carefully in two halves;
take the two cups and place them,
hollow downwards, one on the grass
and the other among the plants or
vegetables ; at the end of a few days
you will be rid of all slugs, black or
green. Every morning you will find
that they have taken refuge under the
two cups of orange peel, and can be
easily destroyed. Another excellent
idea is that of submitting earth taken
from common fields or gardens for
window plants to the inspection of
some domestic fowls. They scrape it
out, and pack up every living thing in
it, grub, worms, and eggs of insects. -
To Keep Pork Sweet a Year.-Pre-
pare brine as strong as boiling water
and pure salt will make it, and keep
it at or near the boiling point. As
soon as 'the pork is dressed, cut it for
packing. The flanks and thin parts
may be left in pieces somewhat broad.
if desired but the thick parts should
be in slices not more than two inches
between the cut. Have your barrels
or packing tubs prepared beforehand.
Put as much pork into the boiling brine
as it will conveniently hold, and let it
lie in the hot brine from three to five
minutes, according to the thickness
and size of the pieces. Take it out
of the brine and pack it into the tub
or barrel; repeat it till all the pork is
in. Then pour in brine hot, andput


on weights to keep the pork from
floating.
NEWLY PAINTED ROOMS.-The dan-
ger of inhaling thd vapor of turpentine
has been long known, and its pernici-
ous influence on the health is beyond,
all doubt, as it has been identified in
several cases occurring in persons
sleeping in newly painted rooms, some
of which have proved fatal. Several
theories more or less probable have
have been propounded to explain the
prejudical effects of the inhalation of
the vapors; but whatever be the correct
explanation, there is no doubt of the
danger of occupbng a room recently
painted, in which turpentine has been
employed before complete desiccation
has taken place. It was pointed out
by the Council of Hygiene that a
sudden death which recently took place
in Paris, was attributable to this cause,
it being shown that. it could not be
ascribed to the lead which entered
into the composition of the paint of
the room in which the deceased slept;
the lead, being fixed and non-volatile,
cannot in these cases be accused of be-
ing the offending element.
