RAILWAY EXPERIENCE. There is an old saying, that the friendship of a dog is better than his ill-will, and for many years in my capacity as a railroad conductor, I have found the above to be true to a letter—but mind, I am not saying that I have no enemies.% I undoubtedly have a few, but I don't think thereis a man that lives but has more or less. A little kindness now and then to the many needy ones a conductor will find, almost every day over his road, will not be lost; and he will, in many cases, find, from his " bread cast upon the waters" a return f<^ur-fold. Yet he must use a great deal of judgment in bestowing his* eh'arity upon even those he thinks entirely worttiy of such bestowal. I will, in connection, relate a little incident by which a little kindness saved my life, and the lives of all the,passengers on board my train. The western division of, our road runs through a very mountainous part of Virginia, and the star tions were few and far between. About th...

TALK WITH THE BOYS. It was the afternoon before examination in a eountry school. A half a dozen boys, who had volunteered their services to procure evergreens and spruce boughs to decorate the school room, were in the yard trimming the boughs and turning the evergreens for the use of the girls, who assisted by their teacher, were fastening them to the walls within. Presently a boy, wearing the air of a would-be gentleman, came swaggering up to the fence. His left hand was thrust into the bosom of his close jacket, while between the fore fingers of his right was a cigar, which he had just taken from his lips to accost the boys. He had evidently succeeded in making himself think that he was almost a man, and might possibly have made the same impression on the others, had not the teacher just then come to the door for a fresh supply of the trimming. On seeing her, Tow Bentou—the boy with the cigar—who knew her opinions on the tobacco question, dropped the hand which hela the ciga...

Jxwilg' §ittH Hill! glowing month, auspicious hour Of varying sky and budding flow'r. Hail! to thy sunshine and thy rain, Repeopling earth with bloom again. In thee the storms of winter cease, And spring usurps a throne for peace, Her kingdom stretching like a strand, Where shines the sun, and winds expand Their fragrant wings, to hover o'er The flowers on that halcyon shore. Loud roars the ocean at her feet, And foaming waves the vision greet _. But ail their murmurings fade away, Where up the banks the roses lay, And far beyond* grand parterre, Lies like elysiuni smiling there_. The sloping fields of freshening green, Seem like a summer' s sea serene, While from its bosom flies the lark, Like a fair angel's winged bark. And there like islands of the blest, The lilies deck the meadow's breast, And king-cups meekly look to God—Like children on the recent sod, Sorrowing o'er a cherished one, And musing where her soul had gone—Scattering round their sweet perfume, For the Amer...

WHAT IS DUE TO _WOMAff. Let man learn to be grateful to woman for this unbounded achievement of her sex, that she, far more than he, and too often in despite of him, has kept Christendom from lapsing back into barbarism; kept mercy and truth from being utterly overborne by those two greedy monsters, money and war. Let him be grateful for this, that almost every great soul that has led forward or lifted up the race 'has been furnished for each noble deed, and inspired with each patriotic and holy inspiration, by the retiring fortitude of some Spartan, or more than Spartan—some Christian mother. Moses, the deliverer of his people, drawn out of the Nile by the king's daughter, some one has hinted, is only a symbol of the way that woman's better instincts always outwit the tyrannical di plomacy of man. Let him carefully remember, that though the sinewy sex achieves enterprise on public theatres, it is the nerve and sensibility Qf the other that arm the mind and inflame the soul in...

THE _VALTTE AND USEFULNESS OF SAILROADS. Mr. Milner, in his late report survey, exemplifies the value and usefulness of railroads as follows "In 1837, I was engaged on the Georgia State Railroad, just then commenced. I there became acquainted with the people along the road, their habits and their means. Beyond their actual wants of food, they raised nothing at all. 'The men moped around, and shot at a mark. The women seemed to do but littlewhilst their children, poorly cared for, sauntered _^ about from place to place, as if their largest thoughts were bent on catching rabbits, opossum_; or some such small game. What was the use of working, when it would cost them two dollars per bushel to get their wheat to market, an_'d then get only one? "In 1857,1 went back again, and what a ehange The rivers were the same—the Ken'esaw ¦ Mountain had not changed—the "Crooked Spoon" still rolled along—the men and women that once I knew were there—the boys had grown to men, and the girls t...
