QoJ of the swiftly-rolling year !
Thy bounties he on every hand ;
How rieli Thy varied gifts appear
While 'neath the Autumn nicies we stand.
With countless sheaves of golden grain
The joyful reapers strew the plain.
Pensile from every drooping bough,
Fair in the snnliirlit's ruddy glow,
The ripening fruits are bending oow:
From lavish Hand our blessings flow,
Through day and night, 'raid heat and cold,
Hull swells the marvellous sum untold.
Spring sent a thrill of dawning life
Thro' every root snd branch and spray ;
AH Nature woke with beauty rife,
As to a new-created day.
Bong tilled the air, from every tree
Were wafted straius of melody.
Ths flowers sprang blooming at our feet,
Earth's fruits matured 'neath sun and shower;
With thankful heart our Jips repeat
God's goodness to this latest hour.

Turpentine Effects. The valuo
of turpentine as a disinfectant is not
sufficiently known or understood. Wil
mington is a town situated on Capo Fear
River, in North Carolina, a river sabject
to high tidal Roods, and, as the town
is in vicinity of large swampy rice-fields,
it would appear to be peculiarly hablo by
nature to attacks of malarial fever. In
tho town, beforo the late war, there were
six large turpentine distilleries, and the
health of the town was remarkably good,
which was accounted for by the supposed
effects of the rosiuifcrous odors of the dis-
Ullerie. Some time after the distilleries
had stopped work, owing to the late war,
yellow fever broke out aud spread rapid
ly. Hoping to check it by this means,
large quantities of rosin were burned iu
the streets, but without beneficial effects.
In 1870 the distilleries wore onco more
worked, and the health of tbe town re
gained its former condition. Another in
stance is given in which turpentine was
used with good results. During the
American war tbe soldiers of the Confed
erate Slates suffered severely from fever,
and the surgeon -general, not being able
to procure qoiuine, tried the offset of
applying bauds oi cloth steeped in tur
pentine aud woru round the body. This
was found te be very efficient iu subdu
ing the paroxysms of ague, and it is
evident that turpentine has some great
power, both oa a disinfectant and a sooth
er of malarious fevers. Medical Times.

Farming ia a profession, not to say
science. If any one doubts this state
ment let him leave bis city home
for no one bred in the country wil
doubt it and undertake to cultivate
even a garden or half an acre for the
summer. He will then find that
knowledge is as essential to the right
use of the spade as of tue peu, and
that there is as great a difference be
tween the scientific farming of Flan
ders, where literally not a weed is to
be seen, and that of many of our far-
mers, tue weaitu ot wnose sou is aoout
equally divided between fruit and
weeds, as between the trade ot a
commerciaT city and the barter of a
backwoods settlement. It is true
that agriculture has been the last to
receive the impetus of modern science.
It is true that many agriculturists
are content to go on in tne ways or
their fathers, because experiments are
costly. But it is also true that they
arc unable to compete with those who
understand the use of new instruments,
methods and fertilizers. Agriculture
is almost- becoming in this country a
popular recreation. Many a gentle
man is content to spend on his coun
try seat money which he makes in the
counting room. The practical farmer
is thus able to get the benefit of ex
periments without paying for them.
This change in agriculture, which has
converted it from a druggery to an
art, has created a demand far a cor
responding literature. 'Fifty years
ago a stable agricultural periodical
did not exist on the American Conti
nent.' Now every considerable djs-

monument are nearly completed and
are eovcrca with canvass Dootns,
awaiting shipment. The work will
all be completed on December 1st,
when the huge blocks comprising the
monument will be lifted from the
yard on to LovelFs locomotive cars,
which Mr. McDonald will procure for
the purpose, and will not be unloaded
till they reach Richmond. Here the
guage will be narrower and the cars
with its freight will be lifted from the
old and placed on the new trucks,
from whence the monument will be
taken to Salisbury without further
change. Tbe monument when erec
ted will be one of the handsomest in
except upon a theatre nearer at home.
The Kew York Tribune, Republican,
though liberal snd opposed to tbe admin
istration, is yet not so liberal at to wish
the success of the Democrats if it could
see its own party deserving of suceett.
It still clings to that hope. We can
therefore acquit it of any bias ot partiality
when it pre scuta a summary of tho re

Varioua accouuts of the origin and

The following is given by Mr. Sankey.
Some time iu 1873, Mr. Saukcy being
then in England with Moody for the first
time, bought a copy of tbe Christian
Age, a Loudon religious paper publishing
Dr. Talmoge's sermons, and in one corn
er found this hymn. lie bad never seen
or heard of it before. . It pleased bim
and seemed adapted to religious work,
lie cut it out of the paper, and three days
afterwards he sung it at a meeting in
. . . a t r ii -v-a t t
r ree Assembly nan in iainourgu, pav
ing composed the music himself. A short
time alter, he received a letter from a
lady thanking bim for having sung the
hymn, aud suting that the author was
her sister, Miss Eliza C. Clapbane of
Melrose, Scotland. She had written the
hymn in 18G8 and shortly after died. She
and ber whole family were members of tbe
Church of Scotland, and were not Uni
tarians, as stated in this country. Mr.
Sankey replied to the lady's letter, ask
ing if her sister had ever writteu any
other hymns, and wot told that she had
written several others which were sent to
the Family Treasury, a religious paper cf
which tbe late Dr. Arnot was the editor,
but only "Tbe Ninety and Nino was ever
published. Mr. Sankey communicated
with him. and received several pieces of
manuscript. The only other hymn by
will not be long before something oft the same author in Mr. Stnkey's eollec-

In New York in 1871, the Republicans
had 18,907 for Secretary of State, while
for the same office in 1875, they are in a
minority of upwards of 15,000. And tho
1 ribune says 25,000 did not vote at the
late election. Is it not quite as possible
that these may vote next year with tho
Democrats as with the Republicans T

iu Iowa the plurality for Governor
Kirk wood is 10,000 less than the Repub

In Ohio the Republicans have less to
spare by 15,000 than they bad iu 1871.

Thev show conclusively that though the
Republicaus have apparently regained
ome of their losses, yet they do net

his ballot, aud there is jast at good reas

act with tbe Democrats as with the Re
publicans more so in fact, siuce it is
more tbau probable that under the free
use of money, and the necessity of creat
