IC^A clergyman and an elder parishioner were walking home from church one day when the old gentleman slipped down. The minister said to him:— “Friend, sinners stand on slippery places.” The old gentleman, looked, and uaid, “ I see they do; but I can’t. T h k M a n W h o L o v b s h i s F e l l o w Mkk—The King of the Cannibal Is* lands. besides. I must pay for the red cow next month ’■ “Oh, dear!” said the wife impatient ly, ‘ there is never any money ior me and my children. I don't see how rh» boys are going to get on much longer.— 'I'here was not a single pair of pants left over last winter, and Harrys overcoat ha.«5 been worn three winters, and is very shabby.” “ Well, I don’t know what you can do Perhaps, next month I can give you the itoney.” “ Next month,” said the wife despairingly to herself, some hours afterwards “ I don t see how I can wait that long.” So she went to the closet, in the little boy's room, to examine the old coats and pantaloons,and see what wa.<» to be done. “ It is a shame,” said she, ‘-that I should be required to mend up any of these old things. This coat is entirely | worn out in the sleeves, and so laded and shabbj'; this one has been worn by them both. I certainly shall not mend this old sacque. I have no pieces for these pantaloons; these are too short, any way. All the old things put together are not worth half a day of my time, and will not last a week after they are done.” But then came better thoughts. “It is vacation. Perhaps, by school-time, I can have the money. Oughtn’t I to try to make some of these things do a little longer? My husband is in unusual difficulty it is so hard to get money.and after all it is not so much matter what these little fellows wear. Perhaps a neat patch is as much to their mother's credit as a new garment There are plenty of pieces like this brown coat.— Let me see what I can do.’* So she iat down, ripped the back of (ach sleeve, pieced them down from above the elbow, and re-faced them, then faced the back anew, put on missing buttons, and held it up. * Really, 1 did not think it could look so well; it will last another month at least ; and the pieces will soon wear to the same color.” Then she took a .second ©ne, which had a good plaid lining and turned it completely, put the buttons on the other side bound the neck and sleeves, and made it look as good as new. An hour in the evening, spent in making over the old caps.and the boys were well enough clothed for all the weeks before winter. Now, was all this of any advantage to herself? Had she not gained the victory? Yes, indeed; a victory over her discontent, her injpatience, her love of display, and her love of ease. “Necessity is the mother of invention,” and ‘ con trivance is better than work.” are two good proverbs worthy to be in every housekeeper’s vocabulary. Here was a woman unaccustomed to being denied what seemed to her necessary for her wants; making a little do what a great deal would hardly have supplied, just by an un toward exertion on her part, an exertion good for herself. and an excellent example to her childr< n. To make an old garment al' m<^st as good as a new one.is an nri.atid is possessed by but few. Some notablt-housewives are equal to it, though few among thousands. This wife, when she showed her husband her achievement, with as satisfied a look as if the clothes were new, lightened his heart from the pain he felt in the denial, and made the future look brighter to him, Besides..she had done good to herselfand she felt it. Her resolution was better tnan listess ness her contrivance abf've anythin" monej could have .bought, because it acted upon her character Little things form our discipline, our every day life leads us onward improvingly, and every action tells for good or evil. Are there not many wives and mothers who can thus lighten their husbands hearts, and keep their purses heavy.— Look twice, before you throw it aside Don’t put those old pantaloons into the carpet rags or the mop, until you have patched them once more. Let the tack <lown in the little girls dress. Make the old ribbon trim the little bonnet again: get the boots mended; buy a little trimming for that sacque, and it will look as well as new. Contrive and economise, and you will be happier; discipline yourself better, do more good, and set a better example, than if you had plenty of money, and lived carelessly — Mrs. M. L.

A letter from Oran gives an account of a lion hunt which had recently- taken place on the frontiers of the province by the members of a company ot amateur sportsmen, who had been attracted to Algeria by the exploits of the celebrated Gerard. I'he hero of the day was Count Henri de Steckel, a Polish nobleman, who made use of a new kind of weapon invented by him. It is a lance weighing from 20 to 25 kilogrammes. It is sharp at the point, but for some distance down it is barbed and notched so that when once it had entered any body it would be impossible to remove it. The i do not start with the assertion that lance is made of Teledo steel, and of the ! rumors are always hes. They are some-best temper. The lion was supposed to tiroes even quite the reverse.

'I’here seems to be a pretty general agreement in tlic statement thal the grape crop in the West was seldom if ever better than that for the present season. There was an excellent crop in 1855, from which the best wine ever made in this country was manufactured; liut the crop of 1858 is generally regarded as the most abundant R. Buchanan an experienced grape grower of Cincin nati, thus speaks in the periodical called the Cincinnatus, of this year s product: •‘The grape crop in the Ohio Valley is the best we have had since 1853 In Missouri and Illinois it is nearly as good. In Maryland, Tennessee, Georgia, and North and South Carolina, late frosts and lot shortened the crops at least one-half. Within twenty miles around Cineinnatti about two thousand acres in vineyards are estimated t.o yield this year, three hundred and fifty gallons to the acre on an average. vSome vineyards will produce siv hundred to eight hundred aliens to the acre; others, from neglect, not more than one ^'undred and fifty. I t>ave invariably found the larges crops in the best pruned and best cultivated vineyards. It will be readily be perceived, that the large crop will reduce the price of wine, but not to th • extent that some people suppose. The vin*^age will be two we(ks earlier this season than usual and the quality of the win** should be good, for the grapes abounded in juire and saccharine matter ” This is decidedly good news, not only for the growers, but also for those who prefer pure and reasonably expensive wines to the dear and adulterated wines from abroad There is evidently a wide field opening to the wine-makers of this country, which, if properly and honestly cultivated, will give employment taboth capital and labor to an extent little thought of at this moment This new industrial pursuit, with the other benefactions which we believe it is destined to promote is calculated to make us a temperate instead of an intemperate pe ople, by the substitutions of wine for brandy and whiskey, thus adding to do mestic comfort as well as prolonging hu man life.— Germantown Tel.

The .^boli'ion eulogists, Negro apologists and sympathizers of John Brown and his murderous scheme for the insurrection of negroes and the munler of in nocent women and children, have provoked the New-York Express to revive the following remiuiscenc^ in the history ot Gotham—it wa-^ the negro plot of 1741 The city of New York then contained about 8,000 inhabitants, of whom only 1,200 were slaves. It says: On the I8th of March, a fire occured in the fort, which consumed the Secretary’s offi e and the Dutch Church.— About a week later another though inconsiderable, fire occured, and. within two or three weeks later, some half-dozen more, most of them, however, only the burning of chimneys. The frequent fires, togeth(‘r with a prevalent be lief that a great deal of petty robbery was carried on bv the negroes, with the aid of certain white men gave rise to a general uneasiness, which soon increased to a panic This was greatly hight- • ned by a proclamation offering a r ■- ward of a hundred pounds for the dis covery of the incendiaries. The reward was too tempting to be long resisted.— An indentured servant woman soon after obtained her freedom and the hundred pounds, by pretending to divulge a plot formed by her master, a low tavern-keeper. named Hugbson, and three negroes, to burn the city and the entire white population. This information was like a spark among the timber.— The whole fopulation was thruwn in a ■paroxysm of rag’’ and fear. The millitia -paraded the street almost continually — The accused parties were arrested and buried to the Jail, and the utmost rag'* against the negroes inflamed every breast. So intense was the panic, that the most unreasonable and contradictory statements were greedily caught up and the least su.spicious circumstances were construed as plain evidence against the accused In a short time one hundred and fifty four negroes and twi'nty suspicious whites were lodged in prison. The following is the way the lawyers behaved on't'jie occasion: ' There was at that time only 8 lawyers in New York,' a^'l of whom volunteerd their services to the Crbvernraent and assisted by turns in the pi^dsecution Reaving the miserable' prisoners wUtiout the aid of counsel.

The animal rolled about pyramid would to the portion above its basis. But every one is ready to acknowledge that they grow, increase enlarge widen, to an astonishing and alar> ming degree.
