FA( Ts ARE STI BBORIY THINGS.
GiEO_ M. LOGAN & CO would most respectfully
I inform the good citizens of Macon and the sur
rounding country, that they are not quite selling off
their stock at New York cost, nor do they loudly boast
ot under selling their neighbors. The design of this j
advertisement is to disseminate extensively this unde- 1
niable truth, viz: that our assortment is rich and racy— 1
rare and beautiful; comprising every desirable article of!
Fancy and Staple Dry Goods
usually found in store on speculation. ’Tis unnecessa- j
ry to enumerate the many, rcry many extravagantly i
beautiful articles on hand, and to comment upon mtrin
sic worth, is deemed entirely superfluous. Suffice it to I
say, that all our rich Fancy Dress Goods, French Work
ed Capes, Ac. were purchased of A. T. Stewart & Cos.,
New’ York, and diner materially in style and patterns 1
from all others in Macon.
All thce who entertain the erronions impression
that we hold up for high price*, can receive occular de
monstration to the contrary by popping in and looking !
Glass Ware, China Wave, ami Earthen
Ware, of every and any kind, at a very small advance j
on New’York cost.

LAUGH, LADY LAUGH !
Laugh, lady, laugh !
There’s no avail iu weeping ;
Grief was never made
To be in beauty’s keeping.
Tears are of a stream,
Where pleasure lies decaying;
Smiles, like rays of light.
O’er sunny waters ploying,
Laugh, lady, laugh.
Sing, lady, sing;
There is a charm in singing
When melody its spell
Upon the air is flinging;
Sweet sounds have often won
More than the fairest faces,
And harps have always been
The plaything of tlie graces.
Sing, lady, sing.
Love, lady, love;
There’s always joy in loving;
But sigh not when you find
Thnt man is fond of roving;
For when the summer lee
Takes wing through beauty’s bowers,
He knows not which to choose
Among so many flowers.
Love, Indy, love.
“Take Care of Yourself.”
“ Tttkc care of yourself” is a principle,
which, in some respects, is not neglected by
mankind in general, though, however strictly
they may act upon it as u rule of conduct, to
the extent of their intelligence, they, of course
deride the maxim as an extreme of selfishness.
’ when it is broadly and distinctly put into
■ words. Hot yet. take care of yourself-—for,
| lie assured, from the very outset, that if you
do not take care—good care—of yourself, there
are none to be found who will perform this
necessary otfire for you. Take car* of yoitr-
I self, then —of your health, your reputation,
! your interests, your happiness, and whatever
else combines with them, to make up the in
dividual recognized its yourself. A contrary
course, iu some instances may secure to you
; a temporary but insubstantial popularity—
people may call you a “ clever fellow,” and
all that —hut heed them not —for the day may
come, unless there he a prudent change in
your tactics, when Ihe very same people will
pass you with a smile of contemptuous pity, as
tlie man who did not know how to take care of
himself, which you will find but a poor reward
for sacrifices to the good of others.
“ Take care of yourself ”It is not thus set
down in the school books, with other maxims
of conduct; but all other maxim- of conduct,
if carefully analyzed, resolve themselves into
this—“ Take care of yourselfTif the phrase
be received in its broadest as well as its nar
row sense. In every action, ponder well its
bearings on yoursell; for this is a sitcred trust
imparted to your hands; and us the trust is
discharged, so will be your happiness here, as
j well as nereufter; and happiness is the great
| object of life. Take care ot'yourself.
It is a capital error lo neglect your own ad
j vanccment in life—see to it always, hy every
means of a lair und honorable character. It
is a liilly, if not worse, to stand aside while
others pant and struggle lorn prize which
might as well be yours as theirs. Assert your
own claims—your own dignity;and heed not
the sneers that- mny greet your coining for
ward. It is ever so—if you nre successful,

But independent of the plain law of instinct,
there is one for the promotion of dress among
ladies which may be plainer still to some—
and this is the law of self interest. It is all
very well for bachelors to be restricted to a
costume which expresses nothing beyond a
general sense of their own unfitness to be seen
--since they can be safely trusted for publish
ing their characters to the world with that
forwardness which is their chief element; but
heaven forbid that the spinsters should ever
take to the same outward neutrality. With
their habitual delicacy of mind, and reserve
of manner, dress becomes a symbolical lan
guage—a kind of personal glossary,—a spe
cies of body phrenology,—the study of which
it would be madness to neglect. Will Hon
eycomb says that he ran tell the humor a wo
man is in by the color of her hood. We go
further, and maintain that to a proficient in the
science, every woman walks about with a pla
card on which her leading qualites are adver
tised.— Quarterly Review.
Marriage Customs in .Sweden.
Hr. Baird, in n late lecture delivered in
Springfield upon foreign governments, and
the social customs of different nations, allud
ed particularly to Sweden, a land made re
cently quite familiar to us through the graph
ic writings of Frederika Bremer. The man
ners and customs of the Swedes he describes
as being remarkably interesting and some of
them very peculiar. He instances most espe
cially the ceremony of marriage, of which for
mality he gives the annexed sigular account:
W hen a young girl is to be married she
dresses hersell in all her bridal garments, and
places herself in the middle of the parlor,
landing. A circle of bright lights are placed
about her, and the groomsmen also come in
to the room bearing each a brilliantly lighted
chandelier. The doors and wiudows are then
thrown open, and every one who chooses can
come and see and criticise the bride as they
please. Impudent fellows will walk about
her, and besides criticising her appearance,
which they do within her hearing, they all
use some such expressions as, ‘-Well, so and so
is to la: married at last; she has been long
enough about it. I pity the man who marries
her.” &c. Females, too, will appear hbout
her in masks, and make still more cutting and
insulting remarks. Aller standing thus lor an
hour and a half the ordeal is ended, the throng
is dispersed, and the wedding takes place in
the presence of the immediate friends of the
parties. After a dinner party, the guests ap
proach the hostess, who stands in the middle
oi the room, and each returns thanks. This
beautiful custom prevails even among the sim
ple peasant families. After the meal is over
the children approach their mother, and, tak
ing her by the hand, say. “Thank you, mam
ma.” The guest, if one there be, merely says
It was the earnest recommendation ol'Wash-
I ington, that among the several departments of
I government, there should be one devoted to
agriculture. This advice and recommenda
tion have hitherto been strangely neglected.
It would have been the duty of those, to whom
this department was to have been entrusted,
to continually watch over the interests of the
farmer—to suggest and encourage improve
ments —to collect and disseminate information
among the agriculturists of the Union—to
open communications with individuals and so
cieties, both at home and abroad, in order to
obtain seeds, stock, machinery. &c.—and in
short by the strong arm of government, to uid
in every honorable wuy tin-progress of the
science and the art of good husbandry. We
can hardly calculate what would have been
the amount of gain to the community, had the
suggestions o! the prudent and far-seeing
VV ashington been attended to and put in prac
tice. Strange that it never had been ! All
the other departments have received the ut
most attention, but this most essential branch
of human industry has received signal neglect.
Commerce has always had treaties and laws
to promote its welfare—light houses to guide
and navies to protect its ships. The army
has Imd its appropriations and its school of
cadets, where, at the cost of $6,000 par head,
favored individuals are taught the sciences
and art of war. The mechanics have their
i patent office, where n sort of bonus is given to
the ingenious, by granting them a ihonopoly
lor a certain space of time. But Agriculture,
homely, laborious, dusty old Agriculture, may
dig without help, and plough her way along
us she best can without any substantial aid or
uny encouragement save what is uttered by
political aspirants and stump orators during

n surely destined to be forgotten when tbe
contest is over. *
It is true, that Congress did vote, thnt a
small sum from the avuilsof the Patent Office
might be expended in collecting ahd distrib
uting seeds, tfcc., by the Commissioner of Pa
tents. It (lid much good, and would have
done much more, had not Congress again,
more flckle than the winds, repemed the law,
and thus Stopped the operation just ns it began
to be useful to the community.
We hope that the day is not distant when
Congress will have a “ lucid interval,” and
establish a home department of Agriculture.
The benefit” of it wiil be immense, not only
to ourselves but to unborn generations.-*
