A WORD TO 7AB.SflT.SR3 SOHS.
You have sometlfing to be proud and to
boost of. The farm is the keystone to every
industrial pursuit. When it succeeds all
prosper;; when it fails, all flat;, Dou't think
yon can't be a great man because you are
the son of a farmer. Washington,. Webster
and Clay were farmer's sous, but while they
Udled they studied. So do ye. Buy a good
hook, one at a time, read anil digest it, and
Call and see iiw and look over books.
No other Machine can accomplish the
kind of sewing stated in Nos. 3, 4, O, and 6.
Parties using a family sewing machine want
a Whole Machine, one with all the improve
ments. It is to last a LIFETIME, and therefore one
is wanted that will do the most work and do it
the best : and this machine can do several kinds
of sewing not done on any other machine, besides
doing every kind that all others can do.

SKETCHES OF FRENCH REVOLU-
The First Revolution.
I Many causes combined to effect the
overthrow of the rronarch y in France in
the Uuer quarter of the last century. "The
excesses of the crown, the grinding tyran
ny of the nobles, the spread of infidel
principles, the example of America
and the awakening conscionanees that
''de vine right of kings," was a gross im
position all impelled to the great denoue
ment on the iOih of August, 1792, when
Palace of the Tuileries was entered by
the populace of Paris and the reign of
Lou U XVI and his beautiful consort,
Marie Antionette, ended forever. The
beginning of the first revolution might be
said to date from the action of the king in
the granting (May, 1789,) M. Neckers's
proposition of a double vote to the third
estate (the Commons), so as to balance
the votes of the iMber two houses, compos
ed of the clergy and nobility. What was
called National; Assembly sprung from
this cause, and by the constitution which
they formed they changed ihe old French
monarchy into a representative republic.
They suppressed feudal jurisdictions, man
orial dues and fees, the littles of nobility,
tithes, co n ven to and corporations of trade ;
they confiscated the property of the Church
and uprooted things generally. Th
Kitigendeavortal in vain to stop this head
long career by the use of his veto, bnt th;
revolution as fnshing ut lull speed, and
outbreaks occurred in lhe province, while
every day the pari ians of the King was
growing fewer? and weaker. In June,
1792, ati insurrection took place in Paris,
followed Lv another in August, and the
Palace of the Tuih'ries was entered and
all its inmates massacred. The King was
; deposed ; he atd his family sent prisoners
to the 1 emplH,ftr;ed by the National (con
vention and circuted on the 2 1st ni Jan
uary, 1793. jMarie Antoimete followed
him to the scaffold in October of the same
(i nard s joined the people, the Hotel de
Ville was taken and retaken, the Ixnyre
and Tuileries attacked and on the 30th
July the revolution was virtually ended
and Louis Phillipe was proclaimed King
The Eighth Revolution
was the meoSorable one of 1848, when
"the Ciliaen King" had to fly incontis
nently to England without his shaving
utensils. His reign was a period of cor
ruption in high places. The heart of the
Lnation was alienated from their Ring, and
wnen a inning aisturoance in February,
1848, was aggravat d into ft popular riot,
Louis Phillippe felt that be s'ood alone
and unsupported as a constitutional King.
He shrank from employing soldiers against
his people and he fell in consequence.
He fled in disguise from Paris to the coast
of Normandy, and, taking ship, found re
fuge again iu Enghrud. There was a
republic once again. L itntrtine was the

sulship oj thr , of whom Napoleon B mli
pane was firat.:. The (all of the Directorial
government in fl 800, though ever so ir
regularly brought abour, was certainly not
a subject ot regret to the great majority
of the French people, who had neither
respeO for it nor any confidence in it.
The piofligacy and dishonesty of that
government were no'orioos. Napoleon
was now pup ni' nently on the scene,
and his power from year to year grew
more absolute, until finally, in 18U4, a
motion was made iu the Tribunate to be-
stoy upon him the tittle of the Emperor of
the r rench, with the hereditary succession
in his family. I The proposition was sub
mitted to the votes of the people, but be

of Napoleon. I He squandered the blood
and treasure of France en a scale of un

the Republic disappeared, and however

where The treatment has been instituted
within twenty-fonr hours after the develop
ment of the prominent synitoms : In the
first place discard all ideas of this being
an iuflamatory affection 'of the brain and
spinal cord ; saturate a flannel folded sev
eral timei. with soirits of turpentine.
Apply this ftlong the whole course nf the 1
r pi ue, pass over this alter the ordiuary
mode of ironing, a common smoothing
iron, well heated. Continue this for ten
or 6ften minutes until you have well stim
ulated the spine. Iu (he meantime give
quinine in heroic dosiie, to be repeated
every two or three hours until all symp
toms are overcome. Follow each duse of
biotuida of potasrinru "combined in with
an ordiuary dose of solid extract Hyoe
cyainus. The use of the bromide is to
control reflexatioii and the doses should
be regulated according to tbe h- ad and
spinal symptoms as ihs is dependent ou
the electra inouic changes in the periphery

modus operandi of the quine or bromide
will be readily understood by the intelli

use a fly blister or opiates in the oatset of

When constipation' exists, which is

the horse took no notice of any object

subsided this symptom disappeared, which

IF YOU PLEASE.
Boys, do you ever think bow much real
courtesy will do for j'ou ? Some of the
greatest men were ever cautious iu this
reaped. When the Duke of Wellington
was sick, tbe last he took was a little tea.
On his servant binding it to him in a
saoctr, and asking if he would have it,
the duke replied, "Yes, if you please."
These were bis last words. How much
kindness and courtesy are expressed by
them! He who had commanded great
armies, and was long accustomed to the
tone of authority, did not overlook tbe
small courtesies of life. Ah, bow many
boys do ! What a rode tone of command
they often use to their little brothers and
sisters, and sometimes to their mothers.
They order so. That is ill-bred, and
shows, to say the least, a want of thought.
In all your home talk remember "if yon
please" will make you better served than
all the words in the whole dictionary. Do
not forget three little words "If yon
