Oipitbbath morning I visited as unday sclioo!
in a i'Ction where inicp:iity abounded a ft-w years
since! I went in time to witness their entire
exer
and a more interesting scene I have ;
seldi
men
tion
and
n if ever beheld in my life. The Govern-!
of the Snpt. and the attention and instrnc-
pf the teachers, was of the most pleasant
ffectual character. The children were all
deeply interested in reciting their good
quie
lessdis, and in hearing the explanations given.
I hrfe found 50 of "The Pictorial Tract Pr'tm
meri' in use, aud the Sunt, said "This book is
justjthe right thing for interesting and instruct
ing j-hildren. All are delighted with it." And
a mother here remarked, "So simple, tender aud
toudiing are the answers iu the catechism of the
Trait Primmer that my son John, though not
quiib 6 years old is so delighted with and im
pressed by them that frequently he is affected
to tears while I am teaching him the lesson,
ant) he will then say, "Ala, I must be a good

Sciool has increased from 43 to 87 scholars
sinte its celebration on the 4th of July last.
Oiie of the Supt's plans for increasing his school
is, to give to him or her who brings in a new
scholars a nice picture tractand one to the new
scholar. 'This gets the whole school interested
and at work.
I gave a tract called "The Fool's Pence" to
a moderate driuker 13 mouths ago aud he at
Icnce gave up the use of ardeut spirits and loan-
fj tt 'j twH-ti lilo ticiliVw. , crlicrT'tiail ami cm. vi
ed it again: and in this way it has passed
through" 18 families, and by it 13 persons have
been induced to give up the u.se of alcoholic
liquors as a beverage.
I have been forcibly struck aud greatlv en
couraged by heari tig professors of religion speak
of the happy effects produced on their minds
and hearts from reading the Tract Volumes.
Some have been thoroughly awakened to their
christian duties, and in the performance of duty
they testify that they have enlarged views of
God, new love for Him, and increasing concern
for the spread of the gospel and the conversion
of sinners. Many of them have requested nie
to give them an opportunity to contribute an
nually to the Tract Society, assuring me that
their prayers should ascend daily for God's
blessing to attend all its efforts aud instrumen
talities. A travelling minister recently said.
"I have been through neighborhoods where you
have scattered books and your books are doing
vast good. They are getting people to read
who read not before; and they are getting many
to think and talk in a way they seldom did be
fore; and they are getting light where there
was gross darkness before."
Recently a gentleman came to me in the
street and said, "My heart is Idled with joy to
an over-flowing this morning, and I wish to
speak with you about it. Since I having been
tryiug to serve God my dear wife has strongly
opposed me. But for the last six months she
has received and read a Tract monthly, from,
the "Female Tract Society" which seemed to
make her serious and occasionly she has gone
to church. On last sunday she went to church
twice and at night she was much distressed
and unwilling to retire I asked her to mak
known her mmuanu leeiings to me. one seem

streaming eyes, 'Oh I am such an awful sinner!

hopefully converted to God.
f Most of the last month, November, I was on
a visit to West Tenn. where Colportage lias and
is yet doing great good. I was greatly strength
ened and encouraged by spending a few days
with Bro. T. J. Terry Colp. of Henry Co. May
the Lord long spare his useful life. I also met
with other Colporteurs by the way who suc
ceeded well in getting travellers to take good
books aud tracts to read instead of novels. A
fine looking gentleman came to me on the cars
and purchased some tracts. He seemed un
usually glad to get them and after he had dis
tributed some, he took a seat with me aud
stated that whenever he saw tracts his gratitude
to God was newly stirred, for it was a tract
given him by a Colporteur between Philadelphia
and New York that was instrumental in awak
ing him and bringing him to Christ, the sinner's
friend. May we all take fresh courage in work
ing for God who ever works for us

The interest attaching to the history of this
extraordinary female, to whom-France was so
largely indebted for the preservation of .her
honor, and perhaps her nationality, but who
eimlly, received at the hands of Iier uograteful
conntryiucn, as a consummation of her glory, a
martyr) crowu, prompts as to copy this char
acteristic passage, descriptive of ber yonnji
life: f;:vi .
; "The pensive, and retiring feeanty of Joan,
while it attracted the attention of men, repel-letl-'iBmiHarlty.
Several, nevertheless, pleased
with Her race and modesty, solicited her hand
from her. parents. She persevered in remaining
single and free, possibly through some obscure
presentimeut which warned her that she would
one
right, swearing before a court of justice that
she was betrothed to hint. The poor girl, abash
ed but indignant, appeared before the judges
at Toul, and contradicted by oath this calumny
of passion. The judges saw through the plot,
aud sent her home free.
While her beauty thus charmed the eye, the
composure of her face, the thoughtfuluess of
her features, the solitude and silence of her life,
astonished her father, her mother, and her bro
thers. The possessed only the grace and at
traction of her sex she had none of its weak
ness Uer face exhibited neither her feelings
nor the emotions of her heart. Its expression,'
concentrated in her eyes, seemed rather that of
meditation than of feeling, yet she was compas
sionate and tender; but her pity and tenderness
extended to something greater and more dis
tant than her immediate horizon. She prayed
unceasingly, spoke little, and avoided t be com
pany of her equals in age. She generally re
tired alone, and plied her needle in a secluded
nook, under a hedge behind the house, from
which she could only see the blue sky, the tow
er of the church, and the distant crest of the
mountains. She seemed to hear voices within
her which the noise of the world would have
stilled.
She was scarcely eight years of age when
these signs of inspiration began to appear in
her. In this she resembled the Sybils of old,
marked from their infancy with the fatal seal
of sadness, beauty, and solitude, among the
daughters of men instruments of inspiration
reserved for. oracles, and to whom every. other
employment of mind was prohibited. She loved
everything that suffered; particularly animals
those intelligent beings jrifted with love for
us, but deprived of words to convey their fc-l-j
ings. Her compauious say that she was mild
and merciful to birds. She considered them as
creatures condemned by God to live near men,
in a state of transitiou between soul and matter,
and having iu their nature nothing as yet com
plete but the painful faculties of suffering and
love. All that was melancholy and indefinite
in the sounds of nature attracted and absorbed
her. 'She was so fond of the sound of bells,'
says the old Chronicler, 'that she promised the
ringer hanks of wool for the autumn gathering
if he would sound the Amrelus longer in the
mornings.'
But her pity was most strongly excited for
the kingdom of France, and for the young dau
phin motherless, without a country, and with
out a throne. I he ta es she dm v henrrl from
monks, soldiers, rjilsrrims. and beiro-ars the
cottage newsmen of the time filled her heart
with compassion for the voung prince. His
image was associated in her mind with the cala

she saw it perish; it was through him that she
prayea to Ksoa lor its deliverance. Her spirit
was ceaselessly occupied with this anxiety and

t-wunij ji oi. i' i uuiuis, ami in tue midst ot a
fertile and flourishing agricultural region, some
eiglity miles Irom fct. Louis, and some twenty
eight from the Mississippi, rises this famous emi
nence ot iron. It is thus described by a corres
pondeut of the St Louis Republican:
Hie mountaiu and the mound consist of
masses of iron ore of the richest quality, arrau
ged iy the hand ot JNature in 'ready-made'
lumps, from the size of a pigeon's egg upwards,
mixed witn a small portion of reddish-vellow
clay, which itself contains quite a per-ceutatre of

ing necessary have been confined to a small
portion of the westerly slope of the mound, the
mountain being held in reserve, I presume, for
the grander operations of future generations.
tew bauds, with little labor or cost, pick out
enough ore to supply the furnaces. The entire
mound, so far as it has been excavated and test
ed, is composed of these lumps of ore, almost as
pure aJTpig metal, easily separated from the
ciay which mis tne interstices, in many places
scarcely anything but lumps of pure ore, with
hardly any admixture, appear. In some part
of the workings the ore taken out requires no
roasting to prepare it for the furnaces; but
generally, it is roasted in immense heaps, which
at this time form a large store for future use.
When this mound, or that portion of it above
the level of the furnaces, is all changed from
its crude state to iron, the company may pro
ceed to excavate below the level, or continue
eastward a few hundred feet, and attack the
mountain itself, which, so far as is known, is but
a vastly-enlarged edition of the same volume.
But at what period will the mound, even, be
exhausted? I have seen ,no calculations and
heard of no estimate of the quantity of ore; but,
for my own satisfaction, assuming the following
data as entirely within reasonable bounds, these
results are obtained:
"Twenty acres, an average depth of fifty feet,
yielding (say) four tons of ore to the cubic
yard, would "produce seventy per cent, as the
net yield of metal, fonr and a half millions of
tons of iron. If this were taken out at the rate
of one hundred thousand tons per annum, it
would occupy forty-five years. Unless, there
fore, a much larger quantity be yearly disposed
of the present generation of workers will not
witness the disappearance of the mound even to
the level of the furnaces. Respecting tbe quan
tity in the mountain, it is enough to say that
it is practically inexhaustible. The line of the
St Louis and Iron Mountain railroad passes im
mediately west of the works, affording easy and
most convenient railroad access to the mound,
the furnaces, and the base of tbje mountain.

" The new silk dresses manufactured for the
present and coming seasons, include some- of
bright colors; for instance, Isly green and pink,
npou which are printed, in black relief, patterns
consisting of an imitation of guipure flounces.
The patterns are disposed in horizontal rows,
one above the other in the manner of flounce?,
and they generally diminish in depth as they,
ascend upwards. These dresses are intended
for evenirg costume. . One, a dress of pale green
silk, has thelskirt ornamented with five rows ,
ed by ruciie of ganze' ribbon," green striped .
with black. The corsage has a berthe com
posed, of black lace, which opens en coeur in
front and behind, and is headed by a ruche of
ribbon; at the shoulders the berthe is gathered
up in fulness by a bow and long ends formed of
a barbe of olack lace, and in the centre of each
bow is fixed an agraffe of aqua marina. In
the middle of the corsage, between the two
sides of the berthe, three bows of black lace
are placed one above the other. They are
graduated in size, the smallest being the low
est; and in the centre of each is an attache of
aqua marina. The coiure which accompanies
this consists of two bouquets, each of foliage in
tinted velvet, surmounted by a small water lily.
The bouquets arc placed on each pide of the
head, and are united one with the other by a
cordon of aqua marinas, which passes across
the bandeaux of hair. A dress of Isly green
silk, made high to the throat has the front of
the corsage trimmed with three rows of roset
tes, formed of velvet, sarsnet and gauze ribbon
of different tones of green. The velvet ribbon
is the deepest in color, and occupies the under
most part of the rosette. The sarsnet ribbon is
a shade paler, and is placed next to the velvet,
the centre of the rosette being formed of gauze
ribbon of a brighter green thnii the s;irsnet rib
bon. The rosettes arc united one to the other
by a narrow bouillon of the silk composing the
dress, edged on each side by a row of feather
fringe about a half an inch, in width. Rosettes
of pink gauze ribbon have just been employed
to trim a dress of white worked muslin, made in
the peignoir style. Each rosette consists of rib
bon of rive different tones of pink. A single
row of these rosettes ornaments the front of tho
dress which is embroidered in a sprigglcd pat
tern with flowers surrounded by foliaire open
work. A small pelerine of worked muslin is
edged by a deep row of Mechlin lace, which
descends to the waist. The sleeves are trim
med with two rows of lace gathered up in the
inside of the arm by two rosettes of ribbon.
With tins drcjis is now worn a small cap formed
ot tnree bouillons ot tulle over pink ribbon.
Between each bnillon a row of lace, set on in
slight fulness, droops towards the back. Tho
rows ot lace meet at the ears, and are there in
termingled with loops of ribbon in various '
hades of pink. The strings, which are of broad
pink ribbon, edged with lace, flow loosely over
the back of the neck.

It seems that the Erie troubles are not end
ed. The Plain Dealer of the 1 7th says; "It
seems that our neighbors of the 'Sleepy Boro' "
are preparing for war. The common council of
that city have passed resolutions authorizing
the mayor to direct the high constable to 're
move the railroad track occupying the fctreet,
after one week's notice to the railroad com
pany.' "
A Remarkable Corn.E. A correspondent
of the Maine Farmer, tells of a couple in that
State, who are remnrkable people in their way.
The husband is 63 years old and his wife fix.
These old people by their own labor raised this
year 71 bushels of wheat, 40 bushels of corn,
three or fonr loads of pumpkins, besides pota
toes and other articles. The old liidy worked
in the field with the husband six or eight hours
each day, and prepared all the meals besides.
The wife is the mother of ivertty-three chil

were between $250,000,000 and $260,000,000.
The exports of brendstuffs and provisions were
somewhat in excess of $50,000,000. The differ

Speak not harshly much of care
Every human heart nin.st bear;
Enough of shadows darkly lie
Veiled within the sunniest eye.
By thy childhood's gushing tearn,
By thy griefs of after years;
By the anguish thou dost know,
Add not to another's woe.
Speak not so harshly, rnneh of sin
Dwelleth every heart within;
In its closely eovercd cells
Many a wayward passion dwells.
By the many hours misspent,
By the gifts to errors lent,
By the wrong thon didst not shon,
By the good thon has not done,
With a lenient spirit cn,
