It is about a dozen years since business —not pleasure, took roe to New Jerico, the terminus of civilzation and the Wamnielover Railroad And "a hard road to travel" J;hat was. It had steeper grades, sharper curves, and more of them than, it is to be: hoped, ever put in peril the public life or limb before or since. ' It wns Saturday afternoon, and we were to reach Jerico . at some Imdeiiinte hour that evening, "time not b«iiig of the essence of the contract".: " • ' At a place called Blueruiu we stopped fifteen minutes to "liquor." There had been a cock-fight, and several other fights, and a big croud there that day, and everybody was in high glee. ' . The TSew Jerico delegation returned by our train, and rougher locking samples of rustic rowdydora it would have been difficult to find even in that favored region.— Among them was a strapping siz-iboter, a very Hercules in proportions, with a cbeko'-the walk sort ib swagcr about h...

/ ... Ror the " Village Record." / . Education of Business Men. The times are changed. It is- no longer considered essential that only professional men,, so styled, be admitted to the privilege of a liberal and thorough education ; nor on the other hand, ' , that all who receive diplomas' at our RolIfigesT must, as a matter of course, enter upon some one of the three professions, in order to make a better dismay of their education. Now-anlays, the thing has taken another face. _ Now the Agriculturist sees the value of a thorough education, as much for himself and his own class, as for any one else. Now learning is ceasing to be regarded merely as a display. ' It is taking new shapes, and entering into fresh and practical combinations, * and making itself felt as a moving -power, rather than merely an empty exhibition . All this is healthful and good. It argues well for our future. It promises great performances for the generations that are yet to be born. Commerce especially is th...
