"No sir," replied the Spanish

necessary to stop the leak; yoa may
rent her here, and traffic so far as

As fathers love their daughters
better than goes, and mothers love
tbeir son s better than daughter..
so do sistern feel towards brothers
a more constant sentiment of at
tachment than towards each other.
None of the little vanities, heart
burn'ngs and jealousies that, alas,
for poor human nature ! are but
too apt to spring up in female
hearts, can, or, at all events,
should arise between brother and
sister; each is proud of the suc
cess of the other, becanse it cannot
interfere with self nay, on the
eontrary, is flattering to self.
Hence, if there be a bond of family
union more free from the selfish
blots that interrupt all others, it is
that which exists beeween an af
fectionate sister and brother.

bill, said it had become a necessity.
It was within the province of the
General Assembly to enact the
law. It was not unconstitutional
and he thought public opinion de
manded its passage. It was not
intended to inflict any hardseips ou
the railroad corporations but to
maintain a just and reasonable rate
of freight and passenger tariffs.

It is commonly remarked by
foreign thinkers and philosophers
who have studied our national
characteristics, that Americans are
an excitable people, of highly nerv
ous organism, who follow the occu
pation of the moment, whether
business or amusement, with an
intensity oblivious of physical
reaction. Our medical men defend
the truth of this observation, and
at meetings of scientific and pro
fessional authorities circulate pam
phlets with such headings as: ''Is

TVsnt of Courage.
A great deal of taleDt is lost to
the world for the want of a little
courage. Every day sends to the
grave a number of obscure men
who have only remained in obscur
ity because their timidity has pre
vented them making the first effort
and who, if they could have been
induced to begin, would, in all
probability, have gone great
lengths in the career of fame.
The fact is, in order to do any
thing in this world, that is worth
doing, we must not stand shivering
on the brink and think of the cold
and danger, but jump in and
scramble as we can. It will not
do to be perpetually calculating
risks and adjusting nice chances.
There is such little time for over
squeamishness at present, the op
portunity so easily slips away, the
very period of his life, at which
man chooses to venture, if ever, is
so confined, that it is no bad rule
to preach up the necessity, in such
instances, of little violence done to
feelings, and of efforts made in de
fiance of strict and sober calcula
tion. Whatever your hand finds
to do, do with all your might.

Alden's Manifold Cyclopedia.
The issue of the tenth volume
calls attention to the rapid progress
which this excellent popular cyclo
pedia is making. The publisher
promised the volumes at intervals
of about a month; he is recently
more than keeping his word. The
volume extends from Cosmography
to Debry, contains about 040 pages
aud about 100 illustrations, hand
somely printed and neatly bound
in cloth, all for 50 cents ! The Man
ifold is more comprehensive than
any other cyclopedia except Cas
sell's (which costs several times as
much), including an unabridged
dictionary of the English language
in addition to ordinary cyclopedia
matter, and though many of the
articles are necessarily brief, they
are sufficiently lull for practical
people, and some articles are sur
prisingly extended for instance,

so on. It would be strange indeed
if a cyclopedia ol such great merit,
published at a cost so surprisingly
low, did not reach an enormous
circulation. A specimen volume
may be ordered and returned if not
