])K S.\T1SFIK1».—A French paper relates the
case of a yoting lady in Lj'ons, v. ho was predisposed
to corpulency. Some of her triends very foolishly
ridiculed her stout figure. S'oon afterwards her
healtli began to decline, and finally she died rather
suddenly. As there was no apparent cause for
the death, a j»ost mortem examination was had,
and it was found that she had been taking acids
too freely to stop the growing fatness.
It is stated that there is now on exhibition
at a fa,shionable jewelry establishment in N. Y’ork,
in a small show case less than 30 inches siiuare, a
collection of jewelry, forming an outlit for a lady,
valued at ?7S,C)(.I0. A breast ]iin is valued at

THE EDUCATION MOSTLY NEEDED.

The (juestion is often asked, why is it tluit so
few persons are successful in business, and wV.y
property finds such an unetjual distribution 'i This
man, they say, received the advantage of a gcod
Knglish education, and that man was educated at
one of our colleges. Both have been industrious,

the New York Expre.ss; and that journal proceed.s

The idea too comiuonly prevails that a mere
knowledge of bihjks is the beginning and end of
education. The sons and daughtens, especially of
the rich, grow up with this-notion in their heads,
iji idiene.«s, as it were, with little idea of the re
sponsibilities that await them. Their natures re
volt at the mention of “labor,” not dreaming that
their parents before them obtained the wealth they
are so proud of, by industry and economy. How
many young men, college-bred though they may
be, are jirepared to manage the estates which tfieir
fathers po.ssess, and which it may have rei|uired a
lifetime to acfjuire ? How many young women,
though iiaving acijuired all the knowledge and
graces of the best schools, know how to do what
their mothers have done before them, and which
the daughters may yet be compelled to do at some
period of their lives ? The children of the poor
liave to lab(»r or starve, and as far as that goes they

THE COUNTRY NOT RUINED.
Those who have been preaching that the coun
try was about being ruined by the democrats, and
that the Treasury wa^j bankrupt, will plea.se notice
Fin'incidt condition of the U. S. (lOvernnirnt.—
The United States Treasury stands a good chance
of again having on hand a large surplus.
According to official data, the importations for
the pre.sent fiscal year will greatly exceed those of
the year previous, and will rcacfi in amount at least
§300,000,000, which, at the average duty of 15
per cent., will yield revenues of §02,400,000, or
six million four hundred thousand dolUrs more
than was estimated for by Secretary Cobb in his
last annual rejtort to Congress. It is an interest
ing fact that while the (.Jovernment receipts thus
exceed the Secretary’s estimates, the public ex-
])eiiditures are falling considerably below his
figures. The result of this double operation W’ill
be the receipt of a sufficient revenue not only to
meet the current wants of the (Jovernment without
any further loan or re-issue of Treasury notes, but
the speedy accumulation of a surplus to be again
applied to the rcdcmjition of a public debt. Never
before, since the foundation of the Government,
have the recuperative powere of the federal treas
ury been so forcibly exhibited.
The receipts for 1859—’GO are estimated at §77,-
072,475, and the expenditures at §03,321,415,
thus leaving a surplus of §13,751,050.

makes no great pretentions. You find the pale

the Court House has two stories, is painted white,
and looks jirecisely like a private dwelling; two
stores, churches, etc., are all of unambitious archi
tecture, and stand as the exponents of the plain
ness, honesty and cleverne.^is of the population. A
vigorous war has been waged here against ardent
spirits, and there is not now a licensed liquor
establishment in Stanly county. I was informct^
by my hostess that they have haI in this region
four dry summers succe.ssively, ami that the pricc

The Reid (iohl Mine.—lleturning fioni Stanly
I passed near the I’eid (Jold Mine in Cabarrus. It
was from this pioliiic and celebrated mine that the
first record of gold found in North Carolina was
made. Old Mr lleid was living on the premises
in 1709. A beautiful yellow rock, weighing three
or four pounds, was fbutid, and was used in the
dark reddish fawn color, which is liglit, spongy,
and pervious to water in a high degree. Another
substance which has been used of late years is a
kind of bean-pod called divi-divi. Thes^ sub
stances arc used either individually or in various
combinations, anl they are ])repared with plain
water or with ooze, with hot water or with cold,
according to the judgment of the tanner. In which
ever way the tanning is efl'ected, the hide is sub
jected to the action of .solutions increasing pro
gressively in strengtn, until it is so perfectly pen
etrated that wlien cut through it presents a uni
form brown color, any apf>earance of a white streak
in the middle of its thickne.ss being an indication
of imperfect tanning. When the jirocess is com
plete the hides are hung up and allowed to dry
slowly, and while they arc drying they are com
pressed by heating or rubbing, or i^y jtassing them
between rollers, to give them lirmness and density.
Of the thin skins prepared for ornamental pur-
po.ses many are tanned with a substance called su
mach, prepared from the well-known plant of that
name. After a preparatory clensing, &c., the skins
are sewed up in the form of a bag, with the grain
or hair side outwards; they are nearly filled with a
.solution of the sumach, inflated with air, the aper
ture tied up, and the bags then thrown into a cis
tern ot hot sumach liijuor. Being thus acted on,
within and without, the skins arc swii impregnated
with sumach. The bags arc then opened, the
liquor removed, ami the skins washed, dried, d}'cd,

house as a prop to keep the door open. It was
finally regarded as something of a curiosity; and
when the old man went to Fayetteville, N. C., to ‘ wrinkled by pres.'urc with
market, the old lady prevailed on him to take this |
singular rock along, that it might be examined. It 1 Classijlaifion of Lrtfh' r Skimt.—The stoutest

An old man ,«at by the cottage fire,
And he watched the children piny;
And a tear stole down his aged check,

lor his thoughts had wandered back again
To the .scenes of other years;
And his spirit had found a glad relief
In the falling of his tears.
Again he played on the dear old hearth.
And he heard a mother’s voice,
And the gentle tones fell on his ears.
And they made his heart rejoice;
Again he joined in the blind man’s buff.
And the game of hide and .seek,
And he heard his littie sister’s voice,
So gentle, soft and weak.

Till, tired and weary of boyhood’s play,
He turned to his home again.

lIoHiUBi,K Cri'KI.tv.—The sentence of death
passed on Capt. John A. Holmes, at Portland,
Maine, for murdefiug a seaman on his vessel, was
recently published. His defence wa.s insanity,
but it did not juail him. It appeared, from the
evidence, that Chadwick had twice gi\en ofTencc
to the pri.soncr—first that he, with others of the
crew, did not sing one night, when hauling at a lee
br'ice; second, that he did not use the word ‘Sir,”
in answering a question. In this case, the prisoner
struck ( hadwiek over the hcail with a bclaying-[»in
repeatedly, and finally knocked him down with it.
He was next stripped, and tied up to the main
rigging by the prisoner’s orders, and flogged with
a knotted stran-yarn, by one man after another,
for 2t minutes. When the men did not strike
hard enough, or stnabk unskillfully, the prisoner
would take the rope himself,and strike thedeceased
for the purpose of showing the men how to do it.
The decease*! repeatedly cried for mercy, and
a.sked to be allowed to die in peace. These out-cries
the prisoner silenced by striking the deceased with
a belaying-pin.—While still alive, he was taken
down and helped into the foreca.stle, but in ten
minutes he was brought back and tied up a second
time, and the flogging was rc.sumed, the prisoner
tolling the men to strike harder. Again for the
purpose of stopping the out-cries of the deceased,
not to kill him, the prisoner cotnmenced striking
him again with the belaying-pin, till a blow on
the nock killed him, and when his corpsc slewed
round dead, the pri.soner cea.sed to strike.
