A Child Voyager. Children furnish more than one half of the world's purest joys, their beauti ful deeds breaking in upon us often times as delightful surprises ; and stupid would wo be if we failed to be roused from life's torpor by their presence, their deeds, and tin ir expression of them.

Dispatches from the interior indicate severe snow storms extending; as far as learned to south of Monterey bay. On Friday there was an earthnuake in Havana, Cuba, the first experienced on the island; as Gen. Grant was there at the time, on his first visit to Cuba, some people are so foolish as to think it was a demonstration to enter tain him. -♦ • ♦ - -- 1 There are reports from Hussia that the crops of IsTH were unsatisfactory, and that this fact is causing apprehen sions of distress in several provinces. Newspapers now discuss the probabil ity of a necessity arising for the im portation of American grain into Hus sia next spring.

I know not what will befall me: God hangs a mist o'er my eves: An<l o'er each step of my onward path He makes new scenes arise. And every joy He sends me comes As a sweet and glad surprise.

An Increasing Rainfall. in alluding to the yearly increase of rainfall west of the Missouri river, Pro fessor "Wilder says: The efficient cause, greater by far than a'l other causes com bined, of t'.is extra moisture precipita tion from ye:'.. - to year, is the steady ad vance of cultivation or crop-raising— making its westward march in a direct ratio to the annual increased rainfall. It is not necessary for the forest or grove to appear as the condition of rain. At best the forest affords only a surface of leaves, and it can make no difference whether this surface be live feet or fifty feet above tlio earth, providing it be a cool, condensing surface. It has been ordained that all growing crops are green like the leaves of forests and groves, and their extended area would cause moisture to condense and gather into clouds, and by electric agencies, not yet understood, finally to fall in rain in proportion to the cultivated area. Thus an army pf farmers advancing westward twenty mile...
