This energetic firm well deserve* tbe credit of being fhe leading bouse in their branch of business, it is most wonderful to ac-knowledge that they have established this bufines* in the short space of five years. They bave customers who reside in nearly every State of the Union, the Dominion of Canada; from the Island of Cuba they receive orders from persons who are continually dealing in stocks. Their busi-ness has become so extensive that two ex|>erienccd correspondents are employed to attend to their ad-vertising accounts. Their cards may be read in eve-ry first-class newspaper published in the United States. To this they attribute a portion of their success, We advise tho9e desiring to placc their business wilh a firm possessing tbe very highest record for uprightness, and who conduct their busi-ness npon honest principles, to deal with this boase. They also issue a weekly report of the condition of affairs in Wall street, which they are glad to mail free, for one year, to any one who desires and con-templates speculating.

Their office is at No. 12 Wall street, New York City. New York Graphic save: ••This old established house offers facilities for speculating with an investment of money ranging $50 to any amount, and gives small investors the same advantage as those who invest thousands of dollars. During the last month investments ot $(00 ooanany stocks have returned profits of $900 to $S,- 800.

How gracefully each meadow wears Its nice green paletot, With buttercups and daisies trimmed Extremely comme il faut! Along the sky those summer clouds That float so soft and cool Seem to the thoughtful gazer's eye Of puffiug of white tulle. In many a glade the eglantine Her clustering leafage sets, And beautifully decks herself With tasteful, neat rosettes. Down on the shore the waves come in, While pale foam edges them, And look like flounces of blue silk With white lace at the hem. On foliage boughs the robin sings In joy s most sweet excess, Her scarlet jacket suiting well Her glossy satin dress. Oh, when among the cherries red Each robin eats and trills, It pleases me to see the dears Send in their little bills! [From the Stamford Advocate.] CORRESPONDENCE.'

Stafford Springs, Conn., Dec. 18,1874. tf PAESONAOE, SOUTH COVENTRY.) July 12 th, 1875. f Having just returned from a row on the lake, of which I made mention in my laSt, in terms which may have seemed enthusiastic, I wish now to refer to it again for the purpose of emphasizing the highest praise I then put upon it. The half, I know I did not tell you, of this lovliest feature in our landscape. Un-der a clear blue sky, such as that which to-day looked down upon it, its waters are of sur-passing clearness. Seen from the surround-ing hilltops the blue depths are exceedingly rich, with the light of as soft a sky ss ever mirrored itself in classic waters. Seen when at perfect rest, as^it occasionally is, a more perfect mirror never reflected hill-side, or rock, or grain, or grass, or flower, or bird, in any classic land. But seen from its own lap, as one easily pulls his oar along the lake, words fail to tell what a fiction of beauty these hill-slopes trace all about him. Rich fields clustered over with fresh foliage ever varying in their man-ifold tints, rise upward in every direction till they reach the clear cut horizon, in lines of beauty, only to invest themselves with even greater distinctness all over the glassy sur-face. The distant tree tops stretch down just beyond the reach of your oar. Yonder row of mowers on the far off hill side, swinging their scythes in silence beneath the undisturb-ed waters over which you are gliding. Yon elegant mansion, overlooking the anoestral acres of a goodly line of the Coventry How-ards, looks up at you from the far down depths which stretch so far away beneath it. How real all this mirrored fiction seems. The very fringes which so soften the light from tbe flowing chestnut trees, float tremulously in their strange beauty, as if rivaling the cor.il treasures of Indian seas. But if so clear and true to all the minutest features of these sur-rounding landscapes, how suddenly these pic-tures on the water disappear. A slight breath brushes meadow and forest, men and tree-trunks, houses and all their surroundings in-to a medley of such confusion that not a sin-gle feature of any one of all these forms can be seen. The same beauty is on the green earth still, but on the fickle water only a shimmer or a shudder. And so we row the whole distance around the lake, aboot four and a half miles, every where encircled by perpetaally shifting scenes of rural, summer beauty. At one moment the surface, wave-less and without sign of slightest ripple, save what the slender oar makes, looks as serene, pnd still and deep as the cloudless sky itself, into whose pure depths you look and gaze, but from which your wondering scrutiny re-ports no sounding; and at the next, it may be. some sudden shock seems to bave smitten and shivered every inch of your mirror way out to its hill-ribbed leafy frame. But the beauty of this lake is not all there is of it worth having. Its utilities are mani fold. Drawing its supplies not fioin tbe heated surface of the earth, but from its sub-terranean Bprings, it gives UB more than a square mile of cooling Rurface for our hottest days. Welling up here in its elevated basin, so far above the most of our houses, so far above our mill sitta, and so near to both, it is a perpetual promise to us of a bountiful sup-ply of pure water for all family uses, and steady current of power for such uses as our needs require and our ingenuity can con trol. Of the slender stream issuing from this spring-fed lake, murmuring its devious way eastwardly towards tbe valley of the Willi mantic, resting now for a little in the cosy mill ponds which become so many lesser lakes to gem tbe entire course, and now rushing through artificial flumes to leap with intelli gent and beneficent purpose upon resistless mill wheels, geared to tireless industries, we might well write with delight and in thank-fulness. Let it now suffice that this our faithful agent, fed without cost, guided at slight expense, turned easily this way or that, as man's interests or wishes dictate, before entering the WiUimantic for greater service still, stops on its way thirteen times to do over again tbe same friendly service in aid of our busy people. x.

The burial ground is on a hillside, and is half overgrown with brush and weeds, while several dilapidated woolen faotories hard by are fast going to decay. • The Lyon family lot itself is not neglected, and the monument erected by his friends shows an eqnestrian figure of the little general, in has relief. About two miles distant is the farm house where he wad born and the little school house where he began the education that was finished at West Point, and in the same neighborhood still lives Lorenzo Lyon, a brother of the general. He tieasures the hero's watch, worn by him when he fell at Wilson's creek, Angust 10, 1861; also the commission of brigadier general, issued and signed the day previous, August 9, by Presi-dent Lincoln, to date from Lyon's capture of Camp Jaokson in May—• document Lyon never saw. 6TAn Irish girl, employed in a Philadel-phia kitchen, received the following letter: "San Francisco, July 10. My Dear Sister : I have just received a letter from the parish priest of S t Bridget's Abbey, who informs me that our uncle Patrick is dead, and has left an estate of £60,000. We are his nearest of kin, and consequently aa rich as blazes. I'll write ye agin. Hopin' this finds you aa it leaves me, I remain your darling brother, Rafferty." She said to her mistress: "Av coorse I'll finish the dinner I'm coo kin' yez, but ita purely a matter av accommodation," CTMr. Donaldson's fiancee ia said to be confident of his safety.
