COINS OF THE NEW TESTAMENT. BY JAMES ROSS SNOWDEN, ! _* * Director iff the United _States Mint, Philadelphia, "And when he hail agreed with the laborers for a _TJtenny a day, _hesent them into his vineyard ."—Matt. xx. 32. A penny a day seems a small compensation for a laborer; but we have, in our previous article, shown that the coin in question was not the penny of the present day, but was a denarius, a silver coin, the intrinsic value of which was fifteen cents. This gives one a better idea of the value of labor at that time. And it shows that the good Samaritan was more liberal and generous than the usual reading of the text would indicate. Luke, x. 35. He gave the poor man that fell among thieves two silver coins of the value of thirty cents. We have _Reason to believe that silver was at that period ten times as valuable as it is at present; in other words, thirty cents then would buy as much as three dollars would now. It thus appears that the Samaritan, besides the oth...

LITTLE FOXES. A Bsppy holiday patty had assembled one summer afternoon at Nettie Bailey's house, and of all places you can imagine, the _galley farm was the most attractive for holding children's levees. Comfortable, wide, open apartments, furnished in t| | ! good old-faahionedstyle, and the Whole family, iVom dear old grandma to the least, quite free from nervous complaints. A beautiful lawn encircled the house, stately trees threw out their cool shadows, and one they called the ladder-tree, Which a child six years old coi_^ld easil _y climb. But the grand old barn, minus modern improvements was, after all, the most irresistible part of the establishment, as had jt|st been decided by a unanimous vote of the party, in response to the question, what shall we do first? 'The barn, the barn!' said they, with one voice. Grandma had been kissed by the whole * cluster of rose-bud lips, and she was looking on complacently from her arm chair.

THE CAPTIVE TEXAN BOY. My little friends, I will tell you a story of a little boy who was stolen by, and lived with the Indians, for nearly a year. Away off on the frontier of Texas, there lives a wild and savage tribe of Indians, known as the Camanches. Sometimes small parties of them slip down in the settlements for the purpose of stealing horses and mules, and sometimes they murder entire families, or perchance they may not kill some of the younger ones, but carry them away off to their wild homes and rear them upas servants. In _tho summer of 1859, two Camanohes came to the house of a Mr. H., residing in Mason Co., Texas, and after stealing his horses, discovered his bright-eyed little boy, only ten years old, playing at some distance from the house. They approached him slily, and having secured him, he was tied on a horse. The little fellow cried for help, but no one heard him, and away went the Indians at full speed, carrying the little boy with them. Towards night he was mi...

A BAB HABIT FOR A MOTHER. Mrs. Colman used to say she could not see why her children did not mind her better. She was sure she did ' not drive them and make them obstinate in that way, and they had everything done for them which could be done, and yet they never yielded cheerful obedience; and she looked worried and anxious all the time. However, she would have stoutly resented it if any one else had ventured the opinion that they were not the best children in the world, or had suggested a change in her manner of governing them. It was eight o'clock in the evening, and all the little Colmans were in the sitting room, when the customary scene was commenced, which was repeated with slight variations every evening. " Come, Horace," began the mother, addressing her eldest boy, a child of ten years, " come, it is bed time now—you had better put away your books." "Oh! I can't go to bed now—I'm right in the middle of a story, besides I ain't going as long as Carrie sits up." "Come, Carri...

Great Meteoric Shower.—A meteoric shower which appears to have extended over the greater part of Eastern Ohio , fell on Tuesday, 15th of May. In Neyr Concord four stones, weighing from forty to sixty pounds each, fell near the track of the Central Ohio Railroad, burying*themselves in the ground to the depth of about two feet. At Olaysville stones,6f the same quality, but in greater quantities, fell, j Near M'Conncllsville several boys observed aliuge stone descend to the earth , which they averre ' d looked like a red ball, leaving a line of smoke-kt its wake. A gentleman walking in his field, heat New Concord, heard a terrific crash, _likethujnder , which lasted half a minute, and then plainly, saw a large bod y descending through the air in an oblique direction , with a velocity apparently much greater than it could have attained by its own momeutum.

MARRIAGE AND LONG LIFE. It has long been the opinion of those who paid attention to the subject, that marriage in both sexes is conducive to length of life; and a European philosopher has lately 'made observations which render the fact indubitable. His researches, together with what was previously known, give the following remarkable results.—Among unmarried men, at the ages of from thirty to forty-five, the average number of deaths is only eighteen. For fotfy-one bachelors who attain the age oT forty, there are Beventy-eight married men who do the same. As age advances, the difference becomes more striking. At sixty, there are only twenty-two unmarried men alive, for ninety-eight who have enjoyed the benefits of matrimony; at seventy, the proportion between the bachelors and married men is eleven of the former for twentyseven of the latter; and at eighty there are nine married men for three single ones. The same rule holds good in nearly the same proportions, witn regard to the...
