Peter 8 tan wood was a book-bfcder bj trade, end had now been oat of employment over a ? month. Ue was one of those who generally calculated to keep aboat square with the world, and who oonsider themselves fortuoit* if they keep oat of debt.

However, ah* knew it wo?M be of no * ? to ap?ak to him now, and ah* l*t the matt?r pass On the following morning, th* laat bit of food was put on the table. 8 tan wood could hardly realiae that he waa pennileaa and without food. For yeara he had been gay. thoughtl*aa and fortunate, making the moet of the . # . - ? * resent, iorretung tne put, and tearing the uture to take oare of itself. Yet the truth ?u naked and clear; and when he left the henae be said "something must be done.'* No sooner had her hiuband gone than Mrs. Stan wood pat on her bonnet and ahawl. Her eldest child waa a girl seven years old, and her youngest foar. She uked her next door neighbor if ahe woold take care of her ohil> dren till noon. These children were known to be good and q oiet, and thej were taken cheerfally. Then Mrs. b tan wood looked op her house and went awaj. 8he returned at soon, bringing her children some dinner, and then went away again. 8he came home in the evening before her basband, carrying a heavy basket a poo her arms. 'Well, Peter," she asked, after her has band had entered *n<J sat down, "what luck7" " Nothing! nothing!" he groaned " 1 have i made out to get a dinner from aa old eham, bat I ooald find no work." 44 And where hare 70a looked to-day?" 44 Oh?everywhere I have been to a hundred places, bat it i* the tame in every plaoe.

Why, I woald sooner go and do tt myself." " If yoa will go," said the wife, with a smile, " I will stay at home and take oare of the children." It was hard for Peter Stanwood, bat the more he thoaght apon the matter, the more he saw the jastiee and right of the path into whioh his wife thas led him. Before he went to bed he promised he woald go to the batcher's in the morning. And Peter Stanwood went upon his new basineee. Mr. Snow greeted bim warmly, praised bis faithfal wife, and seat him off with two baskets, one to a Mrs. Smith's and one to a Mrs. Dixall's And the new oarner WAfkid til HftV wKan UmA earned ninety-seven cents. ft had been a day of trials, bat no on* sneered at him, and all bis acquaintances whom he met greeted him the same as nsaal. He was far happier now than he was when at home the night before, for now he was independent. (Jn the next daj he earned over a dollar; and thas he oontinned to work for a week, at the end of whioh time he had fire dollars and seventy-fivo cents in his pocket, besides having T>aid for all the food for his family, save some pieces of meat which Mr. Snow had given him. Saturday evening be met Mark Leeds, another birder, who was discharged from work with himself. Leeds looked oareworn and rusty. " How goes it ?" asked Peter. 44 Don't ask me," groaned Mark. " My family are half-starved. 44 But can't yon find anything to io?M 14 Nothing." 44 Have you fried ?" " E?erywher?; but it's no use. However, M- ' fferud uie a joS outside of our trade.1' 4' What was it ?" ,l Whv be offered to let me do bis hand carting! He has just turned off his nigger for drunkenness, and offered me the place !

' Well," said Peter, "if I had be?n in your place I should have taken up with the offer.'' " Why," resumed Peter, " I hare been doing the work of a butcher's boy for a whole week." Mark wm incredulous, but bis companion convinced him. and they separated, one going home happy and contented, and the other going away from home to find some sort of excitement in which to drown bis own misery. One day i>eter had a basket of provisions to carry to Mr. M. It was his former employer, and just as he waa entering the yard of his oustomer, be met him coming nut. " Ah, BUnwood, is this you?" asked his old employer kindly. ' Yes, sir." " What are yoa up to now?" " I'm a butcher's boy, air." " A what?" 44 Too see I've brought your provisions for yoa, sir. I'm a regular batcher's boy." 44 And how long hare yoa been at work . _ !* wis'' ' This is the tenth day " " Bat don't it oome hard?" Nothiag is hard so long as it is boneat, and will famish my family bread." " And how much can you earn in a day at this'" " Sometime* over a dollar, an 1 sometimes not over fifty cents." " Well, look here. 8t*nwood, there has been no less than a dosen of my old handa hanging around my counting room for a fortnight, whining for work. They are stout, able men, and yet they lie still because I have no work for them. Last Saturday I took pity on Leeds and offered him the job of doing my handcarting i told him I would give him a dollar na ? quarter a day, but be tamed op hie nose and asked me oot to insult him. And jet he owoed that hia family was suffering But you oome to my place to-morrow morning and you shall have something to do. if it is only to hold my bench. I honor yon for your manly independence." Peter grasped the old man's hand with a joyous, grateful grip, and blessed bim fervently. That night he gave Mr. Snow notice that he must quit, and on the following morning he went to the bindery. For two days he had little to do, but on the third day a heavy job came in, and Peter Btanwoed bad steady work. He was happy?more happy than ever, for he had learned t?o things; first, what a noble wife he had; and second, how much resource for good he held within his owb en erriee. Oar simple picture has two point* to its moral. One is?no men oen be lowered by any kind of honest labor The second?while yoa are enjoying the fruits of the present, forget not to protide for the futare; for no man u so seeare bat that the day may some when he will want the squanderings of the past. THE ERICSftOM BATTERY. The New York Journal of Commerea Htm the following description of the now battery now being oonatraeted in that city : The battery reita upon two vessels, an npper and a lower one. The npper one is built of iron, 174 feet long, 41 feet 4 inches wide, and 5 feet deep, with a draught of 3 feet 6 inohes, leering only 18 inohes of the aides exposed bore the water-line. The aidea are covered with a white oak bulwark, 30 inches thick, but receive their prinoipal protection from an armor ef rolled plate iron, 6 inches thiok. The deok is made or oek beams 10 inehes thiok, covered with plank 8 inohes thiek and a one Inch iron plate. The upper vessel is flatboitemed, and has a wedge-shaped atom and a tern. The lower vesael which la entirely submerged, is 134 feet long, 34 feet wide, and 0 feet 6 inches deep. It contains the working machinery, the rudder and the anobor, housed away beyond reaoh of the enemy's ahot. Upon the deck of the apper vessel, and the only oonapieuous obieeton this "low, raking," and terrible oraft, is the turret, JO feet ia diameter, 9 feet high, and composed of nins one-inch iron plates, Lapped over eeeh other and fastened with thousands of bolts. A shell proof roof, 0 inohes thick, covers the turret, which ia enured through hatchwsys frem above. The total iakt nf th? turrat ll IK) tnnl Tk? arma. meat oonaiata of two oolumbiada (whioh are preferable to rifled nu At abort range*.) aaoh carrying a ball of ISO lba., and working threugh circular port-hole* three feat above tba deoV Tba oarraigea are made of wrought Iron, and moTea on forged iron alldea. The turrata ean be turned at pleaaure, by a apur-wheei and gearing driven by a double cylinder engine, and eeatrolled by a lever in tba turret. By thia eontri vance the gun* ean be aimed, aim oat instantly, at any point of the horiaoa. The eyliodera for the main angina are 40 ioahea in diaaaatar. with apUtoa atrohe of tl inohee.

But it is believed that nine inches will be a sufficient thioknen. The best practicable thickness can only be ascertained by actual experiment. That four and a half inobea (the thiskBess of plates on the La Qloire aud Warrior) are not enough, was satisfactorily proved by Capt Ericsson in experiment* conducted by him many years ago. The test to whieh his battery will be subjected will probably settle all that is unknown about the resisting power of iron plates. Immediately upon the completion of the battery it will be taken to a position in front of some one of the enemy's accessible batteries - the most formidable preferred?and will "pitch in" at ranges from 1,000 to 300 yards, and u much less than that as will be neoessary to rilenee the rebel guns. Should It not prove potent enough at the fire* trial?about which no apprehension need be felfc?the additional plates oan be attaenea in a very short time, and the suocess of the battery, in the elosest engagemenu and under the heaviest fire, be plaoed beyond any reasonable doubt. How te Increase the Value sf a Cow. Every one who owoi aoow oan see at a glance that it would be very profitable to increase the value of her, but every one oannot tell how to do it. We oan, and we think we oan make it equally palpable to our readers If a cow is kept for butter, it would certainly add to her value, if the butter-miking properties of her milk should bo improved. In summer or winter this can be improved just as the yield of a cultivated crop oan be improved by what is fed to each, and it is simply a question of, will it pay, the manuring the one or feeding the other? Indian oorn will add to the quantity and quality of the butter to a very sensible degree, ana u is simply a question of easy solution, bJ I experiments, whetuer it will add to the profit of the butter-maker to buy corn at one or two cents a pound, aud oonvert a portion of it into butter at twenty fivo cents a pound, or whatever (he market price of oorn and butter may be, and another portion of it into fat, and an other portion of it into manure, for that is the natural result of the chemical change produced in the Ubratory of the cow's stomach. The rime result will follow any other kind of feeding <ioo J pastures will produce an abundance of milk, often as much as the cow can carry; but does it follow that even then it will not be proGtable to feed her with some mure oleaginous food to increase the quantity of butter, just as it sometimes proves profi able to feed bees to enable them to store uivre honey ? It certaiuly does appear to us that the value of cow feeding upon ordinary winter food, may be almost doubled t>y making that food suitable f.?r the purpose of increasing the quantity of milk, if that is the purpose for which the cow is kept. Farmers generally understand that they can convert corn into beef, pork, aad lard, and owujo ui lueui unow exactly a; wnat price per bushel it will pay to convert into these substances ; bat does anyone know at what rate it will pay to convert corn or any other kind of grain iuto butter, or any other kind of-feed into the dairy produots? Is the whole business a hap-hasard one? We fear so. 8ome persons know that they can Increase the saleable valu* of butter by adding (he ooiorlng matter of carrots to it Does any one know the value of a bushel of carrot* fed to a cow to increase her value as a butter-producing laboratory ? Experimental proof upon this point would be far mere worthy of agricultural prisee than it iato see who can show the largest sited roots: for by a few carefully conducted experiments we should be able to increase the value of a cow almost at pleasure.?Rural Register.
