"One thousand men arc wanted,
"Good hearted fellows,' too
"Who have the ready dimes to spend
Ah 6ueh "pood fellows" do
One thousand such are wanted
Men who have not the "chink,''
Throw out jour dollars freely
"While I mix a wondrous drink."
'Twill drive away all borrow
'Twill drive away the blues
'Twill drive out bitter memories
Come now! and dou't-rciuee.
They may prate about religion,
They may talk of noble men,
Who cares for all such nonsense,
Let's be merry while we can.
Let time move slow or quickly
Come right in, friend or foe.
Come father, husbands, brothers
No souls but ours shall know.
'.Mothers aud wives are waiting'
Fie, comrades, let them fret;
For a wondrous soothing potion
You will owe but a trilling debt.
Your children are needing clothing,
And wholesome food, to eat?
This is not neglecting your family,
Fie, man, that's only a cheat,
'I, too, must feed my family,
Aside) And dress my wife In silk,
A thousand men must help me!
Let the children wait lor milk,
One thousand souls are going
Rum Seller, 10 your door,
Ohl God in Heaven; look down to-night
Across the dreary moor
Of doubt, and hungry misery
That soon will swallow up
The fathers, husbands, brothers, too,
"Who drain that burning cup.
Many thousand souls are rushing.
To dark, i emorseful doom
And still the Tempter's voice doth cry
k "IIol comrades, yet there's room."
Room? yes, For what? Oh think ye,
"When purse and strength are gouc.
And home and friends, w ill there be room ?
Ahl then they'll cry, ''move on."
"Wc want no such as you here
To men of means we cry:
Go; hungry, poor and homeless go;
Blame your weak wills atid die!
I have no words to otler
But hope and pray that He

And ne'er accursed be.

The (twitter City ns Viewed
by a. Correspondent
Philadelphia has a population of
nine hundred thousand, and when
considering the amount of ground
it occupies (the whole of Philadel
phia county) it is the largest city in
the United States; also in the opin
ion of your correspondent, the
healthiest, neatest and most niajr
nificent. The facilities for sight
seeing and amusement aiforded vis
itors and citizens could hardly be
excelled. At Fairmount Park is a
largo tower, and by the aid of an
elevator you are drawn to the top,
when by looking through a large
telescope which is stationary at the
top, surrounded by a large platform,
the whole of the city, the Delaware
river and Camden, N. J., are broughtf
within range of the vision. The
park coulains sixty acres of ground
with the Catskill river
- " .
through it, affording delightful
pleasure boat-riding aud excursions
in the summer time, and a splendid
6kating rink in the winter.
Northwest of the park boundary
are the immense Centennial build
ings. A photogtaph of thi'se build
ings can convey but faint idea of

the magnificence of these buildings.
Tho main building encloses twenty
one acres of grouud, and with its!
exhibits in tho departments of Sci
ence, Art, Education, Agriculture,
Mechanics, it is a permanent inter
national exhibition. The diorama
of Washington at Yorktowu is
among the many interesting sights

marvelous wonricr when finished:
Work upon this building has been
in progress for four years, and five
million dollars have been expended
upon it; it is expected that the
building will cost fourteen million
when complete; it encloses one and
a half blocks, will be five stories
high and is all built of gray and
white marble; through the "entire
building are four arches and every
cutry has different scenery iu fact
the architecture and work compris
es a rare accumulation of scientific
art of marvelous mystery aud won
der as a work of man.
I have also been iu the "European
Museum of Mjttery, Hidden Won
ders of the World and Beauties of
Nature. No person visiting the
city should fail to spend a portion
of their time in this magnificent
building or temple. Ordinal? plac
es of amusement afford but a tem
porary enjoyment, but the impress
ions produced iu the museum are
lasting, and are as interesting as
they are instructive. Lessons are
here conveyed to the mind that
caunot be easily obliterated. Here
you will find food for future study
On December the 5th, at the
wbarf of Cramp & Sons, the great
iron ship, "California," was launch
ed. This structure is three hundred
and twenty feet long, width, thirty
seven feet; depth, twenty-six feet,
and all built of five-eighths iron
the most durable and costly packet
ever built ; it has the capacity for
accommodating two hundred and
fifty first-cla.s passengers, and also
room for a regiment of soldiers. It
is owned and was built by the Pa
cific Coast Steam Navigation Com
pany. The ship was launched by
one signal, aud when all was in
readiness, hundreds of hammers
made Eimnltancous blows on the
wedges, and the ship darted off like
an arrow, running over a half mile
ou tho river. It took two tugs to
draw her into the secoud wharf,
where It will be finished. At the
wharf, to wituess the launching,
wcrft over-a thousand people, some
thing over three huudred being iu
the boat when it went its coureo
into the river. At the same wharf,
this summer, einco May, have been
launched three Russian war ships,
named respectively, Enrope, Asia
aud Africa, each boat being three

to take hindmost place.
There are men, who, after having
in youth enjoyed the blessedness of
delight, come, in age, to enjoy also
the blessedness of suffering.
There is no unendurable pain : if
it becomes actually unendurable,
it breaks the heart, whether physic
ally or morally. As long as it is
felt, it may be borne.
It is a sweet feeling, when we
have done with our own life, to look
back upon it as upon a work of wise
and holy grace, in the midst of the
tumult of our own sin and folly.
The unconsummatc creaturely
spirit can, so soon as it is unclothed
from the body, not exist in our
present sphere of existeuce; it must,
ou account of its embryonic condi
tion, be placed under the conditions
of an embryonic existence. These,
as a system, constitute Hades, or
Death. With the consummation of
the earthly world-sphere this Hades,
which is an organism of means of
an activity of God directed solely to
maintaiuing the creature in being,
is annihilated. Rev. xx, xiv.
Although none dispute the value
of fcelf-reliance, nor in fact, its indis
pcnsability to success, yet it is one
of those strange and anomalous
virtues which boys are exhorted to
cultivate and girls are admonished
to shun. The statement, if not made
in so many words, practically
amounts to this : Boys, learn to de
pend upon yourselves. No success
or honor is attainable without it.
Girls, be content all your lives to
depend upon others. Be parasites,
uon-cntities be anything, iu fact,
but self-reliant individuals.
Iu the common acceptance of the
term, after you have called a man a
parasite, you can defame him no
farther. The success of an individ
ual in lire is largely owing to ability,
natural or acquired, to rely upon
his own resources. That the young
meu of the rising generation are
many of them lacking in this essen
tial element is not perhaps to be
wondered at when we consider that
they were born of mothers whol
have all their lives been taught to
regard self-reliance as something to
be ashamed of in themselves.

estly one speaker exhorted the boys
to good aud noble works, remind
ing them that in their hands alone
would fall the destinies of the coun
try; urging them to be honest,
upright, industrious, &c. ; then
turning to the girls, he said, in a
bland, patronizing way : "And you
girls must grow up to be wives for
these coming men."
Of course the average school-girl
of ten years of age would immedi
ately ask herself, "If I must speud
all the years till I am growu, pre

When will teachers and preachers
aud people generally take a common
sense view of this matter and
encourage girls to good works,not in
the hope of catching a husband, but
because they, as well as boys, have a
grand and noble part to play iu the
drama of life, one act of which may
not be matrimony? The New
