Had the United .States persisted in pro
tecting the Guano speculators in getting
the article from the Lota, the value of
the Chincha guano which forms lhe
sole revenue of this eovernment would
have sunk one half, and her credit would
have been prostrated. The Lobos are es
timated to contain two millions ol tons.
which at thirty dollars -per Ion. is sixtv
millions of dollars. The combined effect
of the loss of this great property and the
depreciation of the Chincha guano would
bave been national bankruptcy ; an im
mediate overturn of tho government, and
a series of bloody revolutions.
With the turn things bave now taken.
the prosperity f .Peru is assured. Kbi
wilh now go ahead rapidly. The euano
deposits are inexhausli ble, and as a great
care is taken under government suspervi
sion, to regulate their removal, confining
the operations to certain spots, so that the
birds may not be frightened awny from
others, this 'smgirfaf source of. revenue is-
renewed as fast as it is exhausted. From
henceforward Peru shoots a long ahead
of all i be other South Amercan States on
the Pacific coast ; tind a she feels that
she owes this to the magnanimity of the
United States in retracing a hasty step,
her gratitude is unbounded. It wilt give
us a lasting influence in her councils.
The Peruviac gorernment is behaving
very handsomely toward the vessels char
tered for guano."

I saw a strangely dresssd child behind bis

fellow, then scarce eight year old. He had
lost both hi parent, and was under tbftcbarge
of his maternal uncle, who treated bim with
lb greatest brutality, and obliged iim lo go

Household Duties. From variety of
causes, nojwog is more common man to
find American women , who bave not the
slightest idea of household duties. A wri
ter thus alludes to this subject:
fin this1 neglect of household cares,' A
merican women stand alone. A German
lady, no matter how lofty her rank, never
forgets that domestice labours conduce to
lhe hentlh of bedjrutid mind alike." An
EnglUh-lady, whether she be only gen
tleman's wife or a duke's, dors not de
spise the household, and even though she
has a housekeeper, devotes a portion of
her time to this, ber true, ber happiest
sphere. It is reserved for our republican
fine ladies to be more choice that) even
their monarchicaland aristocratic sisters.
The result is a lassitude of mind, often as
fatal to health as lhe neglect of bodily ex
ercise. A be wile who leaves ber house
hold cares to servants, pays the penalty
which has been affixed to idleness since
the foundation of the world, and either
wilts away from enui, or is driven into all
sorts of fashionable follies, to find employ
ment for her mind." j

" Rothschild is forced to content himself
with tbe same bky as the poor newspaper
writer, and the great banker cannot order
a private sunset, or add one ray to the
magnificence of night. The same air
swells all lung. Each o.ie possesses, re
ally, only his own thoughts and his own
senses, soul and body these are the pro
perty which a man owns. All that is val
uable, is to be had for nothing, in this
world. Genius, beauty and love are not
bought and sold. You may buy a rich
bracelet, bnl not a well turned arm to wear
it a pearl necklace, not a pretty throat
with which it-shnU vie. The richest bank
er on earth would vainly offer fortune
to be able to writeja verse like Byron.
One comes into the! world naked, and goes
out naked the difference in the fineness
of a bit of linen for a shroud is not much.
