THE LOVE KNOT.
Tying ter bor.net under tier chin,
Stye tied her golden ringlets in.
But.not aldne in the. silken snare
Did she <9*tch her lovely floating hair,
For, tying her bonnet under her chin,
She tied a young man’s heart within.
Th<sy were strolling together up the hill,
Where the wind comes blowing merry and chill,
And it blew the curls a frolicsome face,
All over the happy- peach-colored face,
Till, scolding and laughing, she tied them in,
Uhder her beautiful, dimpled chin.
And it blew a color, bright as the bloom
Os the piekiest fnschia’s tossing plume
All over/the cheeks of the prettiest girl
That ever imprisoned a romping carl,
Or, in tying her bonnet under her chin,
Tied'a young man’s heart within.
steeper and steeper grew the hill—
Madder, merrier, chillier, still;
The western wind blew down and played
The wildest tricks with the little maid, „
As, tying her bonnet under her chin,
Sbe.t*ed a young man’s heart within.
Oh, western w ind, do you think it was fair
?oplav such tricks with her floating hair?
o gladfully, gleefully, do your best
To blow her against the young man’s breast,
Where he as, gladly folded her in.
And kissed her mouth and her dimpled chin.
Oh, Ellery Vane, you little thought,
An hour ago, when you besought
This country lass to walk with you,
After the’sun had, dried the dew.
What ire/iloua danger you’d be in
As she tied her bonnet under chin.
A Brahmin on a lotn?-pod
Once' wrote the holy name of God.
Then, planting it, he asked in prayer,
For some new fruit, unknown and fair.
A slave near by, who bore a load, ,
Fell fainting on the dusty ro^d.
The, Brahmin, pitying, straightway ran
And lifted up the fallen mail.
The deed scarce done, he stood aghast
At touching one beneath his caste.
“Behold,” he cried, “I am unclean,
-My hands have clasped the vile aud mean !’’
God saiv the shadow' on lps face,
And wrought a miracle of grace,
The buried Seed arose from death
Aud bloomed and fruited at liis breath.
The stalk bore up a leaf of green,
Whereon these mystic words were seen :
H ‘ Firkl, count' nil men of-equal casta —
Then oau.it thyself the hast and lust.”
The Biahmiu, with bewildered brain,
Beheld the will of God writ plain.
Transfigured then in sudden light,
-The siave stood sacred in his sight!
Thereafter in the Brahmin s breast
Abode God’s peace, and he was blest.

A Practical Business Operation.— Ad
odd iiisfancc of business has just trans
pired at Prague., ,A d&ilerin hops one
«ay (T.Du'iid' Ihc counting room of a large
merchant, who asked hum, how his busi
ness was'progressing., Hrs answer was :
‘I am aeing so little that*l am almost
Inclined to enter your service as clerk.’
‘£low ioubb salary WijUyou take ? was
ihe merchant s question.'
■Two thousand florins a y<?an ’ said the
other la’ighing. . ’»• *«
r ' The merchant then "shook hands with
liim, saying ‘Done! it is a bargain. *.
After this and neither ap
peared to tliiuk any more'of the matter.
Six days after.Jhe merchant went to
Suez the great hop market of Bohemia,
a great rise having occurred in that
article. When be got there he found
that the dealer had got the start of him,
.and had bought all in the market. Meet
ing -him in the street the merchant asked
him what hops lie had bought, and the
'That is my affair,? was the answer.
‘What do you mean by your affair ?
~Yon forget that you are my clerk* and
.that I have a right to know #hat busi
ness you arc doing, as it must be on iny
account. You are iree to cancel your
engagement for the future, if you please,
phut for the present you act for me.’
‘The hopdealer went to a lawyer, and
the advice was to settle it. After a long
-■discussion the hopde; l<-r was released on
paying five thousand florins ($200) and so
w.ts allowed to keep his profits to him
self, Tin* merchant on receiving the
money distributed it among the poor.

Messrs. Stephens, Hunter and Camp
bell, the Confederate Peace Commisson
ers, who left here on Sunday morning
for Washington city, stopped on Sunday
night in Petersburg, whence they went
through the lines to City Point yester
day morning. They left our lines in
General Bushrod Johnson’s front. As
they were making the transit their char
acter and the objects of tlieir mission
became known, when our troops set up
such a cheering as never was heard be
fore, and continued it until the Commis
sioners were out of sight and well with
in the Yankee lines ; when the clamor
was immediately caught up by the Yan
kee troops, who cheered and hurraed
until they were hoarse ; and, amidst the
deafening shouts of the two armies the
Commissioners went on their way. The
next we hear of them will be through
the Yankee papers.
The Internal Revenue. —Tke*4able
of internal revenue derived from the
various States, which was published a
few days ago, shows the proportion ot
wealth to the population which exists in
each State, and hence the proportionate
profits of capital in each. New York we
should expect to exhibit the highest ratio
and its twenty-four millions ot taxes di
vided among its population of nearly
four millions, give a tax ot only $G.25 to
each individual. Pennsylvania, with
nearly thirteen million taxes, divided
among three millions of population, give&
$4 46 to each person. Massachusetts
.gives $9.07 ; Rhode Island $10.25 ; Con
necticut $6.33; Ohio $5.04; Illinois $5.70;
New jersey $4.32; California $4.50;
Maine $1.80; Michigan $1.57 ; New
Hampshire $3.07; Vermont $1.12; Dela
ware $3.23; Maryland $4.02; Indiana
$2.41. According to these ratios, Rhode
Island is richer per capita than any other
State in the Union, or in other words
capital is more remunerative and wealth

The attention of all parties " interested in the
pressing or compressing of Hay, Cotton, Hkmi>
Wooe,Rags, any other article required to
be baled fdr Transportation, Storage or ConsutoD
tion, is respectfully solicited, to the PORTAiup
or STATIONARY PRESSES, manufactnmd by
this Company, under the superintendence ol the
Patentee, Mr. John H. Gov®
The Press is very simple in its construction, re
quiring but ordinary intelligence to work it, nd
can be operated by any known power, s id as
Steam, \Vater, Horse or Hand. In horse
power but one horse is required, the Pres* bein°-
so mechanically constructed on a well-known
principle that the £3’" power increases in a greater
rcUio than the increasing resistance.
The advantages of this Press over all others*
are as follows, viz; ■
Ist. It can press 2d per cent, more material in.
a given space.
-d. It can do the work in 33 per cent.less time
3d. It requires 50 per cent, less driving power]
4th. It turns out the best shaped bale for hand]
ling or rolling.
sth. The Press will last a life-time, he work
ing parts being built of the beet of iron, and not .
liable to get out of order.
The ordinary work of this machine will press
in one operation (after once filling the box of the’
No. 1 Press) a bale of Hay of 450 lbs. weieht in
£3 Two Minuter &t,
Four men and one horse can bale 12 tons of
Hay a day.
Four men without the aid of a horse, or any
power except that contained in the ~ress, can
turn out a bale of nay 27 inches square by 46 inch
es long, weighing 460 lbs., or _3 1-2 lbs. to the cu
No toggle j cUits. screws, cog-wheels, beaters
or rollers used in this Press.
The attention of Cotton factors and planters,
Wool and Hemp raisers, is especially .called to
this Press, destined as it is to work a complete
revolution in the now slow, clumsy and expen
sive method of baling.
The Company will dispose of Town, County or
State rights (reserving to themselves only the
right to manufacture) on reasonable terms.
Mr. N. D. Fisher is the authorized Traveling
Agent for the Company in the Eastern and Mid
. For further particulars send for circulars.
