ECONOMY. —A SLIGHT knowledge of litinmn nature will show that when a man gets little in the world, lie is desirous of getting on :i little further. Such is the growth of provident habits that it has been said that if a journeyman lays by the first dollar, he is on the high road to fortune. It has been remarked by one who has paid great attention to the state of the laboring poor, that lie never knew an instanee of a man who had saved money having after wards to depend on public bounty. We may add that those individuals who saved money are, in the long run, the most reliable workmen; if they do not perform liie work better, the}' behave better and are more respectable. " I would soon er," says a • man of experience on this subject, " have in my trade a hundred men who save money, than two hundred men who would spend every shilling they earn." In pro portion as individuals save a liitle there ifc a suj eri >r tones to their morals; they behave better for knowing that they have alitile st.:!<e in society. _ DECIDED AND TRUE. —Mefora much benefit is derived from tho Atlantic Cable, as a medium for the trans mission of intelligence, remarks the Cincinnati Commercial , it will be necessary to have some persons in Europe, to send reports, who know what news is. Just now the ocean telegraph seems to be iu the hands of speculators and fools. The first message through it, that peace was actually declared in Europe, was a falsehood. The second sensation, that there had been another gunpow der plot in London, wa9 scarcely founded on fact. Tho incident of a small bag of gunpowder which had been thrown over a fence near the Parliament House, was hardly worth recording in a London newsjtaper. The story that war is about to be resumed between Austria aud Prussia u untrue.

The following year her prophesy was fulfilled. The same young girl, Jenny Liud, ap peared in the character of Agatha, in the "Hunter's Bride," and won such immense admiration that the orchestra, forgetting themselves, paused to listen to her heavenly soprano. It is not, however, her enchanting vocal powers, but her thorough womanliness,her Christian love, her faithful and kindly remem brances of her native laud, which make Madame Goldschmidt so be loved. AN EARTHLY ANGEL. —The New York relates the followinginci- Og dent: As a train of cars was last week approaching the Suspension bridge, near Niagara, tho conductor found a young man that could not pay his fare. The poor fellow v/as evident ly in the last stage ot consumption, and emaciated to skeleton propor ions. lie sat by himself, and his eyes were red. as though from weep ing; but tho laws ot the company could not be transgressed, and he must leave the train. Not a person moved or spoke as the conductor led him from his scat, all shivering with cold; hut just as ho icnched the door a beautiful girl arose from her seat, and, with bright, spark ling eves demanded tho amount charged for the poor invalid. The conductor said eight dollars, and tho young and noble girl took that sum from her pocket book and kindly led the sick youth back to his seat. Tho action put to shame several men who had witnessed it, and they offered to " pay half," but the whole souled woman indignantly re fused the assistance. When the train arrived in Albany tho young protectress gave the poor invalid money enough to keep him over night and send him to his friends next morning. FISHING KOR A GOOSE. —When Gen. Ilokc's division was on the re treat through this county, one of the buys baited a book with a grain of com and threw it into a flock of wew that had been driven into a fanner *. yard for protection.

The br-ud *teep of Sion. crowned with the tower ofl>avid; nearer still, Mount Moriah; with the gor geous temple of the God of Abra ham, but built, alas! by the child of llagar, not by Sarah's chosen one; close to its cedars and cypresses, its lofty spires and airy arches, the moonlight falls on JJethesda's pool, further on, entered by the gate of St. Stephen, the eye, though it is in the noon of night, traces with ease the stoets of grief,, a long winding ascent to a vast eupolacd pile that now covers Calvary, oal'edthe street of grief because there the most illus trious of the Hebrew rac3, the de scendant of King David, and the di vino sou of the most favored of wo men, twico sank under the burden of suffering and shame which is now throughout all Christendom the em blem of triumph and honor; pass iug over the groups and masses of houses built of stone, with terraced roofs or surmounted with small domes, we reach the hill of Salem where Melchisedek built his mystic citadel, and still remains the hill of Scopus, where Titus gazed upon Jer usalem on tho eve of bis final assault. Titus destroyed tho temple. The region ofJudea has in turn subverted tho fanes which were raised to his father and to himself in their im perial capital; and tho God of Abra ham, of Isaac and Jacob, is now worshipped before every altar in Rome. Jerusalem by moonlight! 'Tis a fine spectacle, apart from the indis soluble associations of awe and beau ty. The midnight hour softens the austerity of the landscape, magnif icent in outline, however harsh and severe in detail, and while it retains all its sublimity, removes much of the savage sternness of tho stratigo and unrivaled scene. A fortified city almost surrounded by ravines, and resting in the center of chains of far spreading hills, occasionally offering, through their rocky glens, the gleam of a richer and distant land. The moon has. sunk behind tho Mount of Olives, and the stars in tho darker sky shine doubly bright over the sacred city. The all-pervading stillness is broken by a breeze that seems to have traveled over the plains of Sharon from the sea. It wails among the tombs and siirhs among the cypress groves. The palm tree tretnMe* as it paw®, as if it were the spirit of woe. Is it the breeze that has travehnl over the plain* of Sharm fr"ia the wt?

A nearer contact with the once des pised meehanical art* and muscular occupations has developed new ideas regarding their usefulness. excellence and respectability. A longer ac quaintance with their attractions and BervieoahlencßS vill have the effect of enliroiy dissipating the prejudices of the southern people against all kind of physical vocations. When that day shall have arrived, the South will be able to enter upon such a career of prosperity as never before visited its borders, and such as its greatest statesmen never conceived as possible. A FIRE EXTINGUISHING CART RIDGE. — Tho latest invention in France is a sort of a cartridge, con taining ingredients which arc capa ble of extinguishing iire. This is effected by the sudden developement of n large quantity of hydrochloric ncid gas, The scientific principle has long been known, but it has never been put into practical form. The cartridge resembles brown pa per parcels, and are of two sizes. No. 1 is about eight inehes long and two and a half inches wide, and is intended to bo thrown by the hand into the heart of the iire. A string is also attached by which it may bo projected as from a sling. The car* tridge is slightly explosive, so ns to scatter tho substance producing the extinguishing gas. Jfo. 2, or the second-size cartridges, are simply thrown (tho covering being torn on) into the water of the engines, which they saturate a substance producing hydrochloric acid gas as soon ns tho Water touches the lire. Experiments have proved that one-tenth of the water that would liavo beon neces sar}- to extinguish a iire is only requi site when the cartridges are mixed with it, and that tho saving of time is in the same ratio. They are very expenusive. CURE FOR N EURAUIT.' . — Somo timo since we published, at the request ot a friend, a recipe to cure neuralgia. Haifa drachm of sal ammonia, in an ounce of camphor water, to bo taken a teaspoonfull at a dose, and thedoso repeated several times, at intervals of five minutes, if the pain be not relieved at once. Half a dozen dif ferent persons have since tried tho rcc'pe, and in every ease au immedi ate euro was effected. In one, the auffercr, a lady, had l>eei» affected tor more than a week, and her physician \va* unable to alleviate her #atfori tigs when a solution of sal ammonia in earnplior * .iter relieved Lor in a few minute*.—•>. /*.

COOL. — Here is & story of the days when traveling on canal boats wns considered the most conin fortablo mode of gcting along on a journey out west: "Hallo, there- Captain," said a Green Mountain Yankee, to a captain of a packet on the Erie Canal, " what do you charge for passage?" "Three cents per mile and boarded," Wal, I guess I'll take passage, capting, seeing M how I cm kinder gin eout walking so tarnation far." According he got on board just as the steward was ringingtho bell for dinner. Jona than sat down and began to demol ish the " fijeins" to the utter conster nation of tho captain, until he cleared the table of all that was eata ble, when he got up on and went.on deck, picking his teeth very com fortable. "How far is it, capting, from here to where I came aboard r ' "Nearly one and a half miles," said the captaiu. "Let's see," said Jonathan, "that would be just four and a half cents; but never miud the charge, capting, I won't be small) here's five cents, that pays my fare up to here ; I euess I'll go ashore now; I'm kinder rested." The captain vamosed tor the cabin, aud [Jonathan went ashore. tdg=» At tho close ef the war the United States Navy numbered over six hundred vessels: Of these, two hundred and ninety-four are still in the service. About all the useleae vessels have been sold. On the K»t now nro 63 iron clads, 0 .frigates and 65 ships of line. The Government makes the following classification! the rates referred to size rather then to the quality of the veneii: 81 fnt rate sui|»sot war, 686 gun*; 48eae> otid rate; 606 gun*; 80 third rate, 881 guns: fourth rate, 890 (ana.
