Indeed, within the next three months, will have been settled, by the political determi nations of those States whose elective su premacy largely controls the destinies of the nation, the question as to whether American freemen shall yet be free through a restora tion of good and Constitutional government, or whether we shall have fastened upon us tor another four years the administration of that party whose insupportable corruption and dishonest inaugurations of oppressive measures for political agrandizenient, have forced the American people to regard Con stitutional liberties and tlic rights of free men more a matter of history, than of pres ent experience.

With the surplus population, the times go hard on account oi the scarcity of labor. Factories which in other towns exist, more or less, are here entirely non est and the cry is hard times, no work, and consequent ly, no money. How is this state of affairs to be remedied? In such cases, Horace Greeley was wont to say, “ Go}West, young man;” but it might be properly and wisely said, “ Go to the country, young man and old.” There is plenty of land in Georgia await ing the pleasure and plow of the husband man going a begging for immigrants and settlers. “ Charity begins at home.” Our own people are better entitled to her boun tiful soil than the Mennonites, Scandina vians and Chinamen. Would it not bo wise for those who labor and are heavy burtb- ened to flee from penury and taxes, to the peaceful bosom of the country, and find in' dependence and rest? How is this to bo done? Form into vil lages or colonies of from ten to one hun dred families, after the model of Vineland, New Jersey. This plan has many advan tages. In the first place, it affords mutual protection to life and property against prowling thieves and vagabonds. Secondly, it will admit of schoolhouses and churches, the great essentials of Christianity and civ ilization; the other concomitants—courts, prisons, poor-houses—can be dispensed with. This is a practical and important snbject for the consideration of philanthro pists and our people generally, and demands an abler pen than mine, such as “ R. M. O.” or “ Paul Pry,” to do it justice. I hope thc subject may be taken up and that much good may come of it.—Savannah News. From the Microscope to the Woodl pile. The other day a Detroit father purchased a microscope for his son, a boy of ten, patted the lad on the shoulder and said to him : “ My son, take this microscope, and go out and study the beauties oi nature.” The boy left all other amusements for that, and he took such great interest and im proved so rapidly, that at tbe tea table, to which several visitors sat down with the family, he felt that he must make some re marks. Turning te one of the ladies, he ini> quired: “ Did you ever look at cheese through microscope? - ’ “ I don’t think I ever did,” she pleasantly replied. “ Well, you just ought to see the things crawl —-—’’ “John! Johnl” exclaimed the lather, shaking his head at the boy across the table. John subdued for a minute or two, and when his mother passed the cheese around, everybody said, “Thank you, no.” Pretty soon the young student, desiring to molify his father, asked: “ Father, did you ever look at a toad through a microscope?” “I will talk with you after supper," re* plied the parent scowling at the boy. John was rather disappointed at bia fail* ure to arouse enthusiasm, and just as the strawberries were being passed around, he remarked: “ Well, you just ought to look at a straw, berry once through a microscope! They look just like warts, they do, and you think you see bugs running—” “ Jawn 1" said his mother. “ Boy 1” warned his lather. “ Well, they look wors’n flies’heads!” pro tested the boy, who imagined tbat they doubt ed his veracity, for flies ” “Boy r said the father, making a mo tion for John to leave the table.

Knowing the personal character of Its mem bership to be almost universally good, we need have no fear that whatever influence or power it may choose ,to exercise politically will he other than that of wisdom, justice and moderation. Jt may be that in the next decade or two the lawyers will be sent to rear and the farmers reign iq their 27ie Marrying Question. Among the portentous maxims of old Ben Franklin, that the original American philos* loaopher devised between his hours of scien* tific and political wprk, is that which advises the young to marry ;,and other profound in* spectors of the system of humanity have ven tured to repear the same instruction, even in the face of the Shaksperean saying that a young man married is a man that is married. Political economists, too, have not been idle, and it has been demonstrated over and over again that marriage promotes longevity, mor ality and financial prosperity. Nature has always seconded such notions of science and philosophy. The love of home is an innate quality oi the human heart, and we know that while there may be a possible home without a mother-in-law, there can be none without a wife. * Re it ever so humble/ says Papne’s touching lyric, * there is no place like home,’ and this m substantiated by the affec-. tkm whicbexirts between ti*S8HM9tul a* the rich, and by the pain which follows an enforced separation of families. The wisdom of the Creator in giving Adam a companion has always been recognized without tbe help of theological distinctions, and unhappy though many married pairs may be, we feel a good deal more than is expressed even in the words of Holy Writ, that a true wife is not simply a ‘ help’ bnt a port of the man himself, a restored ‘rib,’ without which he makes through the world a disjointed and crab-like progression. Of late years we hear marriages discussed from so purely utilitarian a point of view as to be seriously* alarming, and the heavier bur then is laid upon the shoulders of the weaker vassals’ that their extravagance stands in the way of the marital obligations of the race; that young men cannot afford to marry girls who carry fortunes on their backs, and whose main occupations are dressing and tattle. Were we to listen to or read in confidence all that is said derogatory to the future matrons of unborn Americans, we should stand aghast at tbe prospect which is thns presens ted of our future Republic. We are over whelmed with accounts of our Lillies and Rosalies of Saratoga or the seaside; of their fondness for mammoth trunks and daily changes of attire, of drives and dinners, small talk and novels, operas and soirees, and dis sipation generally. According to this pic ture, the girl3 are the most mvolous creas tures in the world. Some of them may owe their beauty to the beneficence of nature, but if they are pretty they are either stupid or vicious, and are most likely to unite both the undersirable mental and qualities with a positive physical plainness. It is somewhat surprising how determined the female writers from the watering places are in writing down American female beauty and merit, and ar guing that the young woman of society is not fit for the condition of marriage and the sub sequent family relations. In a contemporary newspaper is a pathetic arraignment of this kind against the Ameri can maiden. We should, perhaps, take no notice of it except that it presents a picture of tbe model young American of the mascu line gander who lights his lantern and goes through the world hunting for a congenial mate. This young man is, seemingly, a paragon of perfection. He never parta his hair in the middle, nor runs in debt to his tailor; he smokes not, neither does he chew; he is a punctual attendant upon church, and doesn’t know the name of any horse that ever ran a mile inside of 1:50. He puta all his savings in the bank, has a cottage paid for, supports his widowed mother,- never tas ted alcohol, and abhors swearing. He is al together one of the good, the true and the beautiful, with capitals for each adjective. He wants a wife who shall stead upon the same comparative plane ai»d be despairs of finding such a one. His estimate It m little too high for average human natire, and probably rather above his own msdiam if he could strike it correctly. The girl of tbe period does not, however, lack a defender. The comphunant was quick ly and sharply answered by a correspondent, who, among other things, said that ‘ the av erage American girl of to-day is not the fast and giddy creature our bachelor friend de scribes. Such pictures of true and sweet maidenhood we trust are not rare as those who care to seek them. Many a true heart beats beneath a beaded cuirass* Hands that have been in the flour often go info six-buts toned gloves; and feet that have rocked the cradle sometimes lead to mazes of tbe Gers man.’ There is wisdom in this quotation, and its point is that there is something uns natural and not commendable iu tbe woman who, before she has made considerable prog ress toward tbe half century, cares nothing for graceful dressing, pleasant company, the theatre and the opera. A young girl takes as naturally to a pretty dren as ster does to flowers and music, and te debar her from such pleasures after marriage is simply to make her prematurely old. What vanity there is in this line is pardonable. It comes from the love of beauty and harmony, and in many cases it will be found that the liking for a fashionable appearance is gratified at a small expense. Some of these visions of feminine beauty which parade the streets and seem to have exhausted hundreds of dol lars in their getting-up, have really not re quired as many as ten. Many of the articles worn by ladies, though pretty, are expensive, and no bachelor will ever know how much a clever woman can do with a five dollar bill. To bring all that we have said to bear upon the matrimonial question, we may add tkat a man of good judgment can always find a girl who wilT help aud not hinder him iu life; who will make him a pleasant home and share all his troubles with him; and, more over, that tbe average of true love and confi dence is as high in the ultra fashionable classes of society as in any other. “Is be anything anyhow ?" said one young lady to another as they promenaded Laramie street, and discussed a nice young man. “Oh yes,"replied the other, “hex something; he’s an awfnl big fool.” A Pugnacious Goat.—His head was the shape and size of « Bullitt county water melon, aud he was so black tbat charcoal would make a light mark on him.
