In thecourso of an hour she professed to be much relieved, "thanks to uiy skill," us she said, and I took my departure promising to see her early in the morning. I went home an entirely different man from what I had left. Then I was med itating suicide, while now I looked at the pistol as I entered my room with horror, and quickly placed it out of sight. AY hat had wrought such a change in my fecliugs in so short a time ? Was it hope aroused by the trifling circumstance of the one call I had just had ?

Nans had a. daughter Kate, who was about eighteen years of age, and who John Jones, the oldest son in the Jones family, thought just the prettiest girl in all crea tion. At the time the family troubles be gan, ho was paying attention to Kate, but then the old man forbid him the house, and threatened Kato with dire vengeance if she even spoke to him again. But love was not to be conquered in any such man ner, and in fact the opposition only seemed to fan the flames the brighter. The result was that John and Kato managed to meet quite- often. It so happened, that on one evening tho whole family, except Kate, went away to conic merry-making, to be gone until quite late, when J...

Our effort to furnish a family newspa. per which should be independent upon political subjects, has met with such good success, that we feel warranted in iucrcas ing the size of our paper without making any chango in the price. We have ad ded to our list of subscribers very many new names and hope to add still more ; therefore it may not be out of place to here state what course we intend to pur sue throughout this volume. Uy an independent paper, we do not mean a neutral one ; for while we shall not advocate the interests of any party, re shall claim and exercise the right to support every measure which we think calculated to promote the public good, or to criticize the acts of men iu official positions regardless of party favor. In each number we will give a full report of local and miscellaneous news, and the market price currcut. The remainder of our space we...

Communicated by Janncy & Andrews, Phila. Preparation of Poultry. Considerable care should bo taken in the preparation of poultry, ns on this de pends whether the labor expended is profitable or unprofitable. Poultry intended ibr sale in the Phila delphia market should be fat and should be dry picked. The birds should not be fed the day before killing, in order that the crop may be empty ; a full crop dis figures the bird and injures the sale. Never remove the intestines, feet or heads; the two latter should be free from nil dirt and blood. Fold up the wings and feet neatly, and confine them with strings, This gives the birds a fatter and neater appearance. Pack smoothly in boxes or barrels with perfectly clean and dry straw, to dry-pick a fowl, all that is necessary is to kill one bird at a time, and immediatel...

Thousands of horses die yearly with this disease, and many are killed with the remedies given to cure them. In nine cases out of ten, a horse is given laudanum, others whiskey, pepper, etc., which ure no remedy for the sickness whatever, and only fill up the stomach and do no good. flatulent colic kills more horses in America, than any other two worst dis eases that our horses are suhject to. There is a right and a wrong way to do everything, curing colic not accepted. The right wny to relieve a case of flatu lcut colic, is to give a remedy to stop the accumulation of gas in the stomach and let the gas that has passed out of the stomach into the bowels be, as you can do nothing with it except the case is cos tive, then get injections of warm water and a very fine salt, as the salt will relax the muscles of th...

Would we shrink from little shadows Flitting o'er the dewy grass, If we knew that birds of Kden Were in mercy Hying past? If we knew the silent story. Quivering through the heart of pitta, Would we drive It with our coldness Hack to haunts of guilt again ? Life hatlunnny a tangled crossing, Joy hath many a break of woe: But the cheeks, tear-washed, are whitest, And kept in life are flowers by snow.

l)c ftimc0, New Bloomftettr, )a. 4 Ijc fUaomfitlb Sinus. NEW BL00XF1ELD, PENN'A. Tuesday, January IS, 1870. A bill has boon introduced into the State Senate to fix the legal rate of inter est at seven per cent. Docs not every one know Unit the price fur money like all other articles is regula ted by supply and demand, and that no matter what the fixed rate may be, there is always found a way to obtain a higher rate than the legal interest, if the de mand is sufficiently pressing. AVe hold that the proper way is to leave the rate of interest like other merchandise to be reg ulated by open market. We believe that borrowers would in the long run obtain better terms than they do at present. TnE House of Representatives at Ilar risburg with astonishing liberality have voted to furnish each member with a copy of Purdon's digest and Tyler's manual. For members to replenish their libraries in this manner is au outrage on the peo ple whose money they use. It is neither right nor honest, and ...
