It is a fre.pient sight to see a certain
white girl and her brother, both of tin in
small, beiiii; on the streets. Thc3' are
generally, not exactly togetlier, but if the
iViy (who is the younger and is apparently
about ten years office) is seen, the girl is
apt to be not far off. Thursday the boy
walked into an office and requested that a

upon a remark lein made, by the gen

We have before this alluded to the beg :
ging by these children, they have mote
i bin once been directed to the officers oi j
the Female Benevolent Society, w hose ;
business it is to examine into sucli eases,
but they ne ver seem in a notion to go, even ;
when an offer of accompanying them is ;
No matter what it is that causes this !
continuous begging du the part ot these
little ones it ought to ! stopped. Wher
ever an occasion arises where f.picial des
titution calls for unusual aid, the generous
people of our cily have ever 3hown their
willingness to rise to the occasion, and
will do so again when probably called
upon without the necessity of children
roaming the streets and begginingat large.
If the begying is done from choice there is
all the more reason why it should be
stopped. No matter what the cause may
bo, if it is continued a year or two longer,
it will mean that the two who are engag
ing in it will be lost to the community
as far as usefulness is concern, d The
boy appears to be about ten years of age
and the girl about twelve or thirteen.
Something should be rlone to keep them
from thus wrecking their lives.
By Ureen Manuring Oar Farmer.
Should Nludy up on the Subject and
CJI ve It a Thorough Trial What ;May
be Expected From It.
Not long since we publisheel an admir
able article by Dr. J. W. Sanders, of
Carteret county on the subject of green
manuring. Though comparatively short
we considered it the most comprehensive
and satislactory, the plainest and best
treatise on the subject we ever came across.
In it Dr. Sanders maintained that the in
telligent practice of tips method of restor
ing fertility to cultivated soil would ren
der a farmer practically independent of
other methods of enriching his hinds.
We have been led to this subject again
by conversation with a Pennsylvania
gentleman who is familiar with gn-en
manuringjin extensive practice and who
consequently sjieaks with confi lence of
its value. 1 he gentlemen is Mr. 1 , o
Mr. Vosburg expresses his perfectaston
ishment that our fanners do not under
stand green manuring lietter anil practice
il nioic. lie read Dr. .Sanders article while
heie anl emphatically says that the inde
pendence of oilier maunres which JJr.
Sanders declareel could be brought about
by green manuring is an absolute accom
plished fact in his slate. He says that
wjiere he lives, that no one con '4 sella
farmer a ikjuu.I of fertilizer. They sow
clover alter every crop in the majority
of instances it is soweel as the crop is ma
turing. It e-an be sowed at any season and
plowed ur.ilerjus-t belore the next plan
ting. This, without any other trentment,
keeps the land very productive.
The root3 of the clover are as valuable
for improving the land as the top. They
penetrate the soil until clay is reached.
Where some such method is not used tho
subsoil becomes high lhat is close lo the
surface leaving only a thin portion of
good fertile soil on top. The roots of the
clover cause this proeluctive portion lo
become thicker and to extend deeper ami
deeper down. Besides this, the roots
themselves impart to the soil valuable
plant food, they restore to it what has
been taken from il by the crops grown
There is not a farmer in the county who
should not give this method of fertilizing
a fall fair, personal and intelli
gent trial. Iet it be done in a small way
as experiment and extend the practice as
familiarity with how to procure ihe desired
results comes from experience
If the sowing ot a few clover seed will
accomplish the same lesults that the
spending of many hard dollars will, what
farmer is there that woulel not rather sow
tbe seed and keep his cash or spend it
for something which will delight und
benefit him or bring him in income ol
itself? Give green manuring a trial?

In the course of the feven talks, the ar- !
guments which the single gold standard j
men coilsieler their strong ones arc es un
ineel, and their fallacies false promises;
and illogical reasoning laid bare. The j
preferable-ness of the elouble standard, to
monometallism is clearly shown, along
wilh the reasons for it; and the position
is taken and will be maintained that this
country can and should lead in the work
of remonetizing silver, regardless of w hat
steps any other nation takes on tho sub
ject. Free silver is shown to be Democratic
practice in the past and Democratic eloc
trine to-day, and that those Democrats
who have, who oppose are fighting their
party anel its platforms.
The oubseryiency of this country to
England under the present limited liuau

the privileges und powers it had prior to
the undjl'handed Shern.au. act which rob

Free nnd unlimited coinage of both
metals is the proper policy and Capt.

1 What n iiang of sweet emotion
Thrilled tlie Master of the ring,
When he first beheld the lady.
Through the stabled portal spring!
Midway in his wild Grimacing
Stopped the Pielmhl-Yisaged Clown;
And the thunder? of the audience
Nearly brought the gallery down.
Donna Inez Woolfordincz'
Saw ye ever such a Maid,
With the feathers swallitig o'er her,
And ner Spangled ri:h Brocade?
In her tairy hand a horsewhip.
On her foot a buskin small.
So she stopped, the Stately Damsel,
Through the scarlet Grooms nnd nil.
And she beckoned for her Courser,
And they brought a Milk- while Mure:
Proud. I ween, was that Arabian
Su. h a gentle freight to bear:
And the Master movad towards her,
With a proud and stately walk;
And, in Reverential homage.
Rubbed h.-r soles with virgin chalk.
Round she llew, as Flora Flying
Spans the circle of the year;
And the Youth of London sighing,
Half forgot the Ginger beer
Quite forgot the Maids beside them;
As they surely well might do,
When she raised two Roman candles
Shooting fireballs red anel bine!
Swifter thnn the Tartar's arrow,
Lighter thnn the lark in flight,
On the left feiot now she bounded,
Now she stood upon the right.
Like a beautiful Bacchante.
Here she soars, and there she kneels,
While amid her floating tresses,
Flush two whirling Catherine wheels.
Haik! The blare of Yonder Trumpet'.
See the gates are open wide!
Room, there, room for Gomersalez,
Gomersalez in bis pride!
Rose the shouts of exultation.
Rose the cat's triumphant call,
As he bounded, man and courser.

One foot on his coal black's shoul
ders, Anel the other on his tail!
Onward, Onward, panting Maiden!
He is faint and fails for now,
By the feet he hangs suspended
From his glistening saddle-bow.
Down are gone both cap and feather.
Lance and Gonfalon are down!
Trunks, and cloak, and vest ol velvet,
He has flung them to Clown.
Faint and failing! up he vaulteth.
Fresh as when he first began;
All in coat of bright Vermillion,
(dipped as Shaw, the life Guard -swan.
Right nnd left his whizzing broad
sword, Like a sturdy flail, he throws;
Cutting out a path unto thee
Through imaginary Foes.
Woolfordinez! speed the onward!
He is hard upon thy track,
Paralyzed is Widdieombez,
Nor his whip can longer crack;
He has flnng away his Broadsword,
- HKm Irt nl,.or tl... I il lii i .,.
Tear9 away has scarlet vest;
Leaps from out bis nether garments,
And his leathern stock unties
As the flower of London's du.-tmen,
Now in swift pursuit he flies.
Nimbly now he cuts and shuffle-,
O'er the buckle, heel and toe)
And with hands deep in his peX'kcts
Winks to all the throng below!
Onward, Onward rush the coursers;
Woolfordinez, Pecrles gill.
O'er the garters lightly bounding
From her steed with Airy whirl!
Gomersalez, wild with passion.
Danger All but her-lorgels;
Wheresoe'cr she flies, pursues her,
Casting clouds of somersets!
Onward, Onward rush the coursers;
Bright is Gomersalez' eye;
Saints protect thee, Woollordincz.
For his triumph, Bure, is nigh!
How his courser's flanks he lashes,
O'er his shoulder flings the rein,
And his feet aloft he tosses.
Holding stoutly by the Mane!
Then his feet once more regaining,
Doll's his jacket, Doffs his smalls;
And in graceful folds nround hiui
A Bespangled Tunic falls.
Pinions from his heels are bursting.
His bright locks have pinions o'er
And the public sees with rapture
Maia's nimble son before them.
Speed thee, speed thee, Woolfordincz!
For a panting God pursues;
And the chalk is very nearly
Rubbed from tby white satin shoes;
Every bosom throbs with terror.
You might hear a pin to drop;
All was hushed, save where a star
ting Cork gave out a Casual pop.
One smart lash across his courser,
One tremendous bound and stride,
And our noble Cid was standing
By his Woolfordinez' side!
With a God's embrace he clasjKjd
Raised her in his manly arms;
And the stables' closing barriers
Hid his valor, and her charms!
