INDITKD BT THE OLD MAN.
Friend Mac: I feel it a duty to
make good my pledge te occasionally
drop you a communication, but the
eternal sameness of things here makes
it a difficult task to write anything
that would be likely to iuterest read
ers at such a distance. We have not
had a severe storm, destructive fire,
Indian raid, or anything to create a
RPnsat.inn not. ovoti mud oniMtodi tn
keepthe pegs from get(iug l0-ge ,n
our shoes! The same bright sunshinv
days, and gontle winds, warm enough
for a man to perform his work in shirt
i sleeves, has been the rule here during
the entire winter. Of course we have
had a few cold, blustering days, but
not many, and only one snow, which
occurred abeut Christmas, but only
lay on the eround a few days. We
have not had a rain sufficient to wet
the ground since last September. I
think I hear you say, "-nobody can live
in such a country, where everything
is dried and parched up in that fash-
ion "but there is just where yo would
be mistaken. We have a soil here ca-
pable of enduring greater extremes of
either drouth or wet than any that I I
ever saw in my life. At this time I

I stated in a former letter that Fur-
nas County was better supplied with
timber and water than auy Connty in
the btate, which I believe to be cor
rect; but I wish to explain that the
grounds upon which this statement is
based, is the evenness with which both
are distributed over the entire county.
Any one can see by a glance at the
map that we have three good sized
streams passing from west to east.
with many tributaries entering each
one, and there are many small streams j
not marked upon any map, that all
bave timber and water in abundance.
Go in any direction you please, and
you will find a bright, clear stream of
water, with rock or gravel bed, and a
belt of timber skirting its banks about
every two to five miles of your journey.
The people in this section fail to see
why the R. & M. should have contin
ued their road up the Republican, in
stead ef crossing it near Orleans and
Soing up either )iie Beaver or Sappa
thereby heading off any other road
from ever entering the country lying
between the U. P. and the K. P. The
route which they have selected carries
them up so near the U. P., that a good
opening is left for a road south of
them through a rich country that is
rapidly filling up with enterprising
and thrifty farmers. It surtly can be
but a short time before we shall have
a roud Posing up either the Beaver,
Sappa or Prairie Dog, and either one
would accommodate us, and we are
content to abide our time.
There are many excellent water pow

can come to is that you wanted a clear-

Servants in Italy.
Ill Italy the vocation of servant is an
lonorable one in itscit ; or, at least, a3
it implies no personal inconvenience
or sense of inferiority, the self-respect
is inviolate, nnd the innate manhood
or womanhood ot the valet or maid is
on a level with tfcat of the master or
mistress, and alwnys so recognized and
respected. The.r manners, too, are
fashioned after the politeness of good
society ; so that, in courtesy of speech
nd general deportment, both classes
are virtually on tne same looting.
The oldest civilization of the globe has
interpenetrated decplv in the habita
of thought and customs of each, estab-
lishing distinct permanent classes, to
common advantage, free of mental re-
p roach, or prejudice, and singularly
tree and easy in social relations, with
out the slightest disturbance to the
respective parts they fill in life, and
those individuals whose living de
pends upon the transitory wants of
travelers, can form but an inadequate
idea of the actual relation between tho
two social extremes of master and ser
vant in the average Italian household.
It is almost patriachal in character.
I havo known three generations
mother, daughter and grandchild in
service in the same family. As in
marriage, both sides are inclined t?
keen together until death do them
part, unless for some cogent reason.
lliere is nothing like caste in tne ser
vant's position, for he or she usually
comes from the peasant ry,than whom,
especially in Tuscany there does not
exist anywhere a more sturdy inde
pendent, self-respecting and asserting,
vet courteous, class of people. This
i: particularly true of tho Pistoian
ami liucchesc mountaineers, who cul
tivate their own lands, and can always
gain a subsistence. J? rugal, friendly,
and virtuous at home, respectful and
polite to strangers, self-unconscious
and perfectly at case in their deport
ment, with strong ties of family and
neighborhood, and quick intellects,
they carry these qualities into the vo
cation of servants whenever they as
sume it, as they frequently do as a re
lief to overgrown households at home.
Their employers are chiefly of the old
nobility or landed proprietors, whose
conservative ideas and modes of life
arc in harmony, iu the main, with
those of the peasants themselves. They
require but little drill to lit them tor
iheir new positions, and when they
have mastered the requirements of a
somewhat elaborate household, there
are no more companionable, useful,
and trustworthy servants devoid of
nonsense and desirous to please, put
ling heart into their work, and becom
ing so attached to their new homes as
to make their interests their own to I

The weighting of silks has grown to
be an evil of such magnitude, that ex
perts who have devoted special tstudy
lo tho subject do not hesitate to alarm,
of the practice in France, that its ef
fects are becoming positively ruinous
to tho silk-growing departments of
that country. Jl. Moyret, whose
opinions on the subject we have a!
ready had occasion to notiec, iu a re
cent communication in Keidni.'inV
Farbcr-Zeitung, shows that the higii
clas products of France are no longer
in demand, for the reason that inferior
and cheaper foreign silks serve tiuite
as well for loaded tissue. Hence, nc-coi-ding
to the writer, these districts,
already suffering from the ravages of
the phylloxera and from tho loss of
the madder trade, are in the utmost
He makes the suggestion that the
same principle thatTs followed in the
valuation and sale of gold and silver
should bo adopted with silks, namely,
that the proportions of the real article
and of the weighting matters be ex
actly specified, and that a central office
for the cheap and expeditious assay of
silks 6hould be opened at Lyons. Iu
conclusion, it may not be without in
terest to note, that M. Moyret credits
a New York firm with the unenviable
distinction of baying practiced tho
most excessive weighting of silk that
has come to his knowledge.
