Be Diligent in Business Fervent in Spirit, Serving the X^ord. JEiesist the .Adversary. I I i i Well-Boim1 Christians.—Dr. T. L. Cuyler, of' brooklin, Bays, pithily, in tbo Evangelist: A well built Christian is harmoni- ous in all his parts. No trait shames another. He is not a jumble of in- consistences,—to-day devout and to-morrow frivolous ; to-day liberal to one cause and to-morrow niggard- ly towards another ; to-day fluent in prayer and to-morrow fluent in polite falsehoods. A new paper is to bo started in Paris to be called tbo Divorce, to be devoted to the passage of a law le- galizing divorce. There are said to be forty-five thousand separated men and women living in France. BITER AND MARKETS. Jsjterson, August 20, 1869. River still lower.

Boys, Aunt Funny has a special message for you. I was sitting by tho window this morning thinking of what I should talk about to my little friends this week, when a wagoner shouted " Geo, Coly 1" which caused me to look up. I saw a load of watermelons passing. " Eureka 1" Do you know what that moans boys? It means " I have found it." Now, boys, I have told you the meaning of Eureka, if you will tell me why so many oxen aro called Coly, we will be even; Aunt Fanny is generally odd, you know. But to my story: several years ago I lived on a new place where the ground was fine for melons. Uncle Fanny was absent, but our two boys, (the older not quite nine years of age), were sure they could tend a watermelon patch. The ground was only fifty yards from the house, so, though there was no man on the place, I de- termined t...

SEPT. 3, 1869. VOLCiSE 1. Nirnsin at TIIE SLEEPER'S PROPHESY. It ib going the rounds that the sleeping girl, Miss Caroline Godsey, near llicknian, Ky., after awaking from a nap of fourteen years, in* dulged in a little prophesying and then died, on that same day, at the age of 26 years. She said the " sun would be a total eclipse on the 7th of August, and that the sun would never shine as bright after that day. That this would indicate the end of the world, which was speedily ap- proaching." She missed it just a little. If Bhe had said that the heat of the sun would increase in power till it be- came intolerable, some folks in this hot-very-cool section of country would have been scared out of their wits. A printer iu our office says he saw the " sleeping beauty" dur- ing the war, and that sh...

The other day I was going along Ihe street at noon to dinner, and I passed a negro man who was down on his knees and hands scratching about in the hot sand and looking very intently, as if he were hunting for something very precious. In- deed I have no idea that the poor woman mentioned in the Bible sought her lost treasure with more earnest- ness. 1)0 you remember about that woman ? 1 thought the poor negro looked like a crazy man.

The last senBation in literary cir- cles und with the press generally, is Mrs Harriet Beecher Stowe's "The True Story of Lady Byron's Life," in which the following announce- ment is made in regard to Lord By- ron : u From tlie height at which he might have been happy as the husband of a noble wowan, he fell into the depths of a secret adulterous intrigue with a blood relation, so near in consanguinity that discovery must have been utter ruin and expulsion from civilized society." This " guilty secret" Mrs. Stowe claims to have received from Lady Byron herself, as the cause of her reparation from tier husband. The Hood relation referred to is suppos- ed to be Lord Byron's half sister. The ruling impression seems to be that the st...

If you will tnsn to Proverbs 22. 1, you will not have to guess art}' more : " A good name is lather to be chosen than great riches, and loving favor rather than silver and gold." A good name—loving favor. These two things always go together, for if ;i boy has a good name he will have the loving favor also of all go<>d people.
