Picking berries by the way ;

JTossing up the fratrrant hay.
Never dure the question ask . '
"Why to me the wenry task "
The same little hands mav prove
Messengers of Light and Love.
Mother, watch the little tontre,

By the joyous, happy child.
Catch the word while yet unspoken.
Stop the vow before 'tis broken :

Mother, watch tbe little heart,
Beating soft and warm for you;
Wholesome lemons now imparts

Kxtricating every weed ;
Sowing good and precious seed ;
Harvest rich you then may see,

SAUL, KIXG OF ISX2AEL.
On a low couch, with a drapery of
rare embroidery, sat Saul, King of
Israel. Ills tail, elegant form was
bent ; his large beautiful eyes glared
wildly ; and to look into then: was to
see the tempest of a soul. At times
he would rave ; then he would mutter
strange words In low tones.
He was surrounded with wealth
and luxury. On tables carved from
the cedars of Lebanon, were salvers
of silver, exquisitely wrought, filled
with luscious fruits fig9, olives and
pomegranates and . golden . , goblets
filled with wine pressed from grapes
gathered from the vine-clad valley of
EshcoL . -liis robes and the tapestry of
the room were of the richest shades of
Lydian dye. ;
Servants stood ready to minister to
his wants. Around him were wise-
men and poets, prophets and seers.
Wise men, witn head bowed low.
whispered in a sad voice. Poets,
"with the eve In a fire-phrenry roll

The King of Israel was tormented
with an "evil spirit from the Lord."
A servant stepped forward, and
stood before the King and said: -
"My lord doth know that music can
drive the evil spirit from the troubled
soul. - Shall I bring hither that come
ly youth, the 3011 of Jesse;. he is a
skillful player on the harp,"
The King said .
"Bring hither David!"

and not to serve. Yet he bowed be

him, and his quick thought knew
that, because of liis rebellious heart,

all hearts filled with rapture, and went
out after the great soul of harmony,

The countenance of the King
changed. For "It came to pass, when

played with his hand; so Saul was

His eyes softened. A smile of peace

which was tossed like a lost ship on a
stormy sea, became as quiet as the
still waters after a tempest has swept
over them. In subdued tones he said.

Fearful Condition of AtThJrs In

About ten days ago, a quarrel took

their way to the quarries, with a gang
from the prison under charge of
guards, which resulted into a desperate
fight with knives. Both the combat

and powerful men. A few words pass
ed, when both parties drew forth
large sharp pointed knives, and a
most terrific and deadly struggle en
sued. They fought the entire length
of one of the long tables, stabbing and
striking alternately, and were not
sepe rated until they began to fail
from the loss of blood. The floor and
tables were bespattered with blood,
tond the scene was one long to be re
membered. They were both taken to
the hospital and one of them expired
in five minutes. His body exhibited
no less than half a dozen fatal stabs.
The otherjwas severely wounded but
survives yet. . An inquest was held
over the body of the dead man by
Coronor Reese, but the jury could not

murderous weapons. This being the,

scores of innocent men Is momentarily

Beauty and Fashion.
Of all who inhabit our globe or
Fphere; of all who have a bearing in
the world, there can scarcely be one
found who does not profess or mani
fest some desire for the possession of
that which we call personal beauty
and a desire to be f;i?hionable.
The individual who may be spoken
of its the plainest looking and uncouth
apparently, will instinctively halt and
pause for a moment in front of the
mirror, and will be seen Tapidly ad
justing the hair or fixing the dress
for something genial of personable ap
pearance. This is true of all mankind
in air ages and all countries. The
most virtuous and moral on one hand,
and the voluptuary and revealer on
the other. The mirror may be found
as universally as the Bible, and looked
into, we may say oftener.
It is said that the savages upon the
far distant islands of the South Sea
will Importune the stranger for a piece
of looking glass in which to behold
his personal beauty and fashion, and
when obtained, it will be deemed and
considered as an invaluable treasure.
But personal beauty must necessarily,
and does depend in a very great de
gree, upon the state and condition of
the skin, while artificial beauty de
pends upon fashion and mode of dress.
Tho Roman ladies were considered
handsome, but they were indebted to
the care they took of the skin, for that
transparency of complexion which
The Grecian mythology has repre
sented the godess of love to have
arisen from the depths of the sea, thus
it was indication that she came forth
washed ' and abluted, refreshed and
purified, and hence she was consid
ered as beautiful.
A fresh and transparent complexion
adds stupendously to the beauty of a
male or female. But how few of our
country and nation jossess this charm,
although all might become possessors
of a good complexion.
In our land king fashion reigns pre
dominant, and there seems to be a
general court of appeals in all matters
of dress and appearance, whose au
thority Is readily admitted, whose
changeful freaks are heartily ridiculed
by all, save the devotees who worship
without cessation at her shrine, and
whose fiats are lamented by the Just,
and vainly opposed by the philosophic.
'But we may pause for a moment
and ask from whence does she receive
her right to supremacy ; from what
attitude or source does she derive her
sovereignty, placing us in the hands
of thraldom and gyles servitude.
And when we contemplate lor a mo
ment the extent to which fashion has
carried us, we caunot but exclaim that
there is not a physiological law in ex-
lstanco : not a law of beauty and ex
cellency, and scarcely one of true mod
esty that has not been violated and
mlringed upon with impunity, and it
is almost impossible to adduce a shape
of deformity which has not in some
manner or other been honored by
fashion soa;. arid fashion natronaire.
Every nation! has its peculiarities
and words of operating, and so every
people have their modes of dress and
ginger-bread fix up, and it seems
more natural far one to follow the dic
tates of fashion in order to promote ar
tificial beauty than it is for one to fol
low physiological laws to promote
natural or personal beauty, and the
reason for this we cannot assign, un
less it is because it is fashionable to
do so ; and it ha3 been said that we
might as well be out of the world as
out of the fashion.
There is tiuite a contrast between
the fig leaves of the antiquarian world
and the stays and Grecian-bends of
We have become a prey to that
which will shorten our stay upon the
earth. The ribs are flexible, and a
small amount of pressure will aug
ment or increase their curvature, and
hence lesson the size of this cavity. .
We are daily bowing In the most
object and servile bandage at the beck
of a clique of the most dishonoring
specimens of silly humanity that mod
ern civilization has ever produced
amid the fresh, moral atmosphere,
and contaminating associations of
Paris; and if we Mill follow fashion
it should come from our own plastic
hands, and not imported from Paris.
Fashion does not conhne itself to
the moral and sinful world only,
but sways iU tyrannical scepture to
a certain . extent ever the religious
world, for in the cities you will find the
free gospel penned or boxed up within
pens and cushioned seats, or proclaim
ed from a marble stand and between
beautiful and painted walls, and it
would be a sacrifice for the poor to
even venture there.
And for health and beauty we would
adopt the language of Dr. Armstrong:
"In what'ef you sweat, indulge your taster-"
Some love the manly tolls.
The teuntx some, and some tbe graceful daace;
Others more hardy range the purple heata,
Or make stubble when from Meld to field
The sounding eovies urge their labecing flight,
Kager amid the using clood to poor
The gems unnerving tbnnder, and there are
Whom still tne meaa oi ine green arcner cnanu.

A Move to Make Judre Chase
President In 1S72.
New York, June 18. -A movement
has lecn commenced among some dis
satisfied Republicans for pressing
Salmon P. Chase for President in 1372,
and with the supposed Intention of
coalescing with the Democrats. Hugh
Hastings, or the Commercial Adver
tiser, Dudley Field, Thomas C. Mur
phy and George Opdyke are mention
ed among the parties interested, and
two or three meetings have beeri held
to arrange plans. A meeting wa3 ar
ranged for last night at the SL James
Hotel, but there were not enough
present to organize. Some who went
into the measure at first have backed
out of it, on account of its strong lean
ings towards the Tammany Democrats
and a suspicion that it was intended
to carry eonservath'c Republicans into
tne .Democratic ranxs.
