tentation of life, the means of livelihood.

aFor &11 the higher arts of construction,
some acquaintance with Mathematics is iodis
pentab e. The village carpenter, who lacking
rational instruction, lays out his work by em
pirical rules learned in his apprenticeship,
equally with the builder of a Britannia bridge,
makes hourly reference to the laws of quanti,
Lative relations. The surveyor on whose sur-
vey the land is purchased; the architect in de-

all are guided by geometrical truths. Railway.
making is regulated from beginning to end by
mathematics. Similarly with the barbors,
docks, piersandvariousengineeringand archi-

mines that run beneath it. Out of geometry
as applied to astronomy, the art of navigation
has grown. Even the farmer, fcr the correct
laying out of his drains and his furrows has
rude reference to geometrical principles.

WHAT WE ARE SAID TO NEED.-ROV.
Horace James writes fromNewhern, N. C.,
to the Boston Congregationalist: "Until
an infusion of Northern life has set new
forces in motion, until society has time to
grow-not only to be organized, but to grow,
the South is as incapableofself-government
as a spoiled child. The nation must keep it
under tutelage until it is of age. This is
the system of apprenticeship which is need-
edhereuot for the blacks but for the whites.
The government has discharged toward the
South a duty of correction. Let it be fol-
lowed by a duty of instruction. It remains
that it should teach the South line upon
line, precept upon precept, by military gar-
risons, by Bureau courts, by Congregational
Churches, by Northerasettlers, by constitum
tional amends4nts, by Christian missiona-
ries, by free schools, lectures, news{npers
and reading rooms, what be the first prinei-
ples of soetal order, political eminence, mor-
al worth and industrial success. The North
must teach the South bow to think and how
to act, how to work their own black labor-
ers, how to manufacture their own tarpitch
and turpentine, how to manufacture their
own cottoo, rice and cane!'s 1Yho can suf-

The cultivation of the florse Radish is

rich soil is indispensable, when fine, large,
smooth roots are desired. A piece of moist
loamy bottom land, well drained, is prefer.
ble-not boggy and wet, as most people
imagine to be the thing, for its cultivation.
Good garden soil dugli to 2 feet deep, will
produce very fine roots. The planting my

Catching Cold.
A valuable lesson may be learned from
the fact that.common colds were almost un.
known in our army, during the late war.
Men were exposed to cold and wet long
continued, so that during cold storms of
winter men often were wetasiongas the
storm continued, and until their clothing
dried upon them when the storm ceased.
If Ohis proves anythitig, it proves the falsity
of the common complaint that one has been
ut ago much and caught cold. Tke truth

The Case of Senator StdolstOIL

edThism at man, s isiv kneWIk, wasUe to

was sought in the unusual mode of his election:

Another nime has been somerrhat mixed 1
with this case, in the papers, namely, that
James M. Scovil, the President of the New J(

was about this: he was in the joint meeting
which the plurality rule was offered, opposed
bitterly, protested against its adoption, and 1
tired from the meetitig. But wheh the elect
was had, as a man of honor and a lawyer,
thought himself bound by it, and that 1
