MVfi Dr. Itlair, concur with divine anthoritv. to enforce the duty «•! lor givciicee. " Let bim that i-\vitli'*ut d'hi east the first stone" is the true principle of forgiveness. Of all pis eions that envade the human breast, the most direful, the one that soonest unhinges order and repose in society, and which has its dwelling place in harrow contracted minds, is revenge. It permeates society like u serpent in the garden of Eden, exciting at its poisonous touch, moving onward unhinging society, and spreading desolation in its pathway. It ha? been truly said, that •• ilie greatest man on earth can no sooner commit ail injury, than a good man can make himself greater by forgiving it." One ot the surest eriteiioin tojudyo a people by, in reference to their position and advancement in civili zation and morality is, to sec if they oXi-iviS ' chir.tv and lor:;i veucfS to others. Uevciige ehaiuetoriy.es na tions as well as individuals and moves ot. the same principle hut in greater volume. It always lias its abode in lit'le self-conceited minds. A brave man and a brave people, never harbor revenge. What a sad instance of these great truths do we sec at the present day in the degrad ing actions and conduct of the Nortl - - ern people? Having both riglit and justice on their side, the spirit of forgiveness and charity to a con quered people-would shine forth with increased lustre, aud add honor and glory to courage; but when it is even doubted whether the scales will proponderate in their favor, when viewed on the rigid principles of strict justice, tiow sadly does a nar row contracted self-conceited spirit of revenge, tarnish the glory of their urms.— San Antonia (Texas) Ledger. VVIIAT THEY WON'T OWN TO.— There are several things which yon never can, by any accident get a fady —be she young or old—confess to. Here are some of them : That she luces tight. That her shoes ure too small for her. That, she is tired ut a ball. That she paints. That she is as old as she looks That she has been more than Jive minutes dressing. That she blushes upon hearing a certain person's name mentioned. That she ever says a thing ehe does not mean. That she is fond of scandal. That she cannot keep a secret. That she —above all persons in the wide world—i« in lov£. That she doeau't want a new boa Met. Thai know everything.

" Kv ry one does not look on me with the unfavorable eyes of your Majeatv." "You muat be very rieh, then or ahe eould not love you," said the Czur. " Allowing tliat to be. I should not be the first one who' has been loved for bis wealth !" replied the buffoon, with a cynical smile. "I know one far richer and more pow erful than I am, who has thought himself loved for himself alone, in stead of his piles of yellow goH ; and was so plainly deceived that he alone was unsuspicious oft he true object.'" The Emperor turned pale with anger, and bit bis lips until the blood flowed, for the buifooti alluded to a love adventure of the Monarch well known at court, but which none had dared to speak above a whisper. »Very well," said he, controlling his rage by a powerful effort, "since you desire to marry Catherine Ital vaski, you shall do so. I charge niv sell with the whole expense ot the nuptials, and you will receive . from me the palace wicli you will occupy with your charming bride. Mean time you are forbidden to leave your chamber, under penalty of being made acquainted with tho knout, in comparison with which, the blows of my wife, which have often made your shoulder# ache, arc mere love caresses." Fifteen days after, on the 14th day of January, 1720, the buffoon was awakened at daybreak, by the sound of music at the door of the chamber which served him as pris on. A number of servants df the Czar entered, clothed him in a mag nificent suit of garments, then placed him on a sledge, to which were at tached four of the most beautiful hordes in the Imperial stables, and surrounded by a cortege , composed of the greatest lords and ladies of the Imperial Court, conducted to the cathedral Notre-Darue-de- Kahzan, where, the nuptial ceromony was celebrated with a splendor and ex travagance which uot only complete |v reassured, but delighted the proud ftikolicff*.

MORMON WOMEN. —The Salt Lakd Telegram thus comes to the rescue of the women of Mormondom,wh» have been called " ugly" by an "Eastern scribbler Speaking for ourselves, wo will say that our ninety and nine wives and our five hundred and ninety nud nine daughters, God bless them each, every, and either, all and singular, are the very perfection of beauty, beautiful bevond compare, in coun tenance, in ligure, and far higher, in virtue. With the most unshaken con'tidence wo put thetn against wives and daughters elsewhere. Our women give in to none for personal beauty, but when you com 9 to the beauty expressed in the homely proverb " handsome is as handsome does," we assert, without the slight est fear of successful contradiction, that our Mormon women "immeas able surpass those ot any other com munity, and wo can prove it the sat* iefaction of any reasonable man, and. if wo can't, then ho is no man, that'sall. Every citizen of Utah will back us up tu these particulars, and if they do not it won't make bit of diilorence wo can back ourselves Wo are perfectly at homo at stand ing tip for truth and the women—we are a whole team at that, it is forte, exactly what wo prido ouselves iu. . TUUTLB Eaa BUTTER. —O»d of tho peculiar productions of Brazil, des cribed by Mr. Fletcher, was "turtle egg butter." There are innumera ble turtle* on the sand bars of the Amazon and the natives make it a business at the proper season to col lect their eggs which are deposited in the sand. These are thrown into a boat nnd when sufficient quantity has been collected they are trampled by the Indians. After a short time an oily substance rises to the surface and is skimmed off and this is 44 tur tle egg butter." Many millions of eggs are consumed in this war every year, and the article is largely eon iiumiiL Bat Mr. Fletcher coufoseed that although be bad partaken of many •tm-fg* diabe* in this e«srw iff i«f Hi* travel* and had Umti to rrlwh tbeot. be oerrr cn«U taste tar tie ncr Utur. lie 4iis't oactlj TW» Mt mmm ikrttw i ywrk<t fi—*mg _ . mi afc | > :<;:4Mn * 4MM9L 0H MMM
