The rest of the true laborer is sweet, Beneath the welcome shadow of an oak, Whose overhanging branches spread and meet, At .noon a cool and beautiful retreat From burning sunshine, and the mower's stroke. The laborer is worthy of bis hire ; Who works Bhall eat, for God will give him food; The honest man shall win his heart's desire, And calm contentment evermore inspire, And fill aperpetualf east of good. Who works Bhalllive—who labors shail.find rest; At eventide there shall be light andlove ; The sleep of the hard-worker shall be blerf, And nerve for labor with a purer zest The high nobility of work to prove. Who works for God, serenity Divine Shall ever soothe and sanctify his breast; Who conquers sin, shall heavenward rise and shine, Where calm repose and endless Sabbaths join, Day without night—eternity of rest, — Benjamin Gauyh. PUT TOTJRSBLF IS MY PLAGE. \ I cannot vrait any longer. I must have my money, and if you cannot pay it I must foreclose the mortgage and sell the place,\ said Mi\ Merton. \In that case,\ said Mr. Bisftop, \ it will of course be sold at a great sacrifice, and'after all the struggle I have made, my family will again be homeless. It is very hard. I only wish you^ had to earn your money as I do mine; you might\'then know something of the hard life of a poor man. If you could only in imagination put yourself in my place, I think you would bave a little mercy on me.\ \It is useless talking ; I extended this one year, and I can do so no long- er,\ replied Mr. Morton, as he turned to his desk and continued writing. The poor man rose fron his beat u--.:.-i walked sadly out of Mr, Merton's office his last hope Was gone. He had just re- covered from a long illness, which had swallowed up the means with which he had intended to make the last payment on his house. True, that gentleman had waited one year, when he had faije-d to meet the demand, owing to illness in his family, and he had felt very much obi iged to him for doing so. TM3 year he had been laid up for several months, during which he could earn nothing, and all his savings Were theti needed for the sup- port of himself and family. Again he had failed, and now he would again be homeless, and have to begin the world anew. Had heaven forsaken him and turned him over to the tender mercies of the wicked ? After he had left the office, Mr. Mer- ton could not drive away from his thoughts that remark to which the poor man\ in his grief had .given utterance, \I wish you had t o earn your money as I do mine.\ In the midst of a row of figures, \Put yourself in my place\ intruded. Once after it had crossed his mind, nothing of the struggles of the poor. They are men just, like the rest of man- kind, and I am sure if they but had the faintest idea of what the poor have to pass through, their hearts and their purses would open. You know it has passed into a proverb, 'When a poor man needs assistance, he should apply to the poor.' The reason is obvious.. The poor only know the curse of poverty. They know how heavily it falls, crushing the spirit out of a man ; and, to use my fa- vorite expression, they can at once put themselves in the unfortiinate one's place and appreciate his difficulties, and are therefore always ready to render assist- ance as far as they are able ; and if Mr. Merton had the least idea of what I and my family had to pass through, I think he would be willing to wait several years for his money, rather than distress us.\ With what emotion the stranger lis- tened may be imagined. A new world was being opened to him. He was passing through an experience that had never been his before. Shortly after the conclusion of the meal, he rose to lake his leave, thanking Mr. and Mrs. Bish- op for their kind hospitality. They in- vited him to stay all night, telling him he was welcome to what they had. He thanked them and said, U I will trespass on your kindness no longer. I think I can reach the next village be- fore dark, and be so much further on my journey.\ Mr. Merton did not sleep much that night. He lay awake thinking, lie had received a new revelation. Thf poor had always been associated in Ids mind with stupidity and ignorance, and the first poor family he had visited he had found far i n ad% f ance, in intelligent ..sym- pathy and real politeness, of the ex- quisites and fashionable butterflies of the day. !<y called at the cot- i:-i; ••.: ill a large blue l u> M-i*.

I have a mind to drop in there this after- noon, and see how it fares with his family ; that man has roused my cu- riosity.\ About .> r o'clock he put on a gray wig and some old, cast-ofi clothes, walked to the residence of Mr. Bishop, and knocked at the door. Mrs. Bishop, a pale, weary- looking woman, opened it < the poor old man requested permission to enter and rest awhile, saying he was very tired with his long journey, for he had walked, manv miles that day. Mrs. Bishop cordially invited him in, and gave him the best seat the room af- forded. She then began to make prepa- rations for tea. The old gentleman watched her attentively, He saw there was no elasticity in her step, no hope in her movements ; and pity forlier began to steal into his heart. When her hus- band entered her features relaxed into a smile, and she forced a cheerfulness into her manner. The traveler noted it all ; and he felt himself forced to admire this woman, who could assume a cheerfulness she did not feel for her husband's sake. After the table was prepared, there Was nothing upon it but bread, butter and tea. They invited the stranger to eat with them, saying, \We have not much to offer you, but a cup of tea will refresh you afteV your long journey,\ He accepted their hospitality, and as they discussed the frugal meal, he led them, without seeming to do s>, to talk of their affairs. \I bought this piece of land,\' -aid \>; r. Bishop, \at a very low price, u.i.d ri*.t.-.d of waiting,, as 1 ought to have done, :.-•\• 1 had saved the money to-build,.1 though I would borrow two hundred dollars, The interest on the nrmey would nut be nearly as much as the rent I was paying, and I would be saving something by do- iti<>- it. I did not think there would be any difficulty in paying back the borrow- ed\ money. But tho first year my wife and one Of my children were ill, and the expenses left me without the inea-ns to pay the debt. Mr. Merton a; ' x ~ L tents, heavon!.\ \What is it, John s' ions wife. \Good news,\ replied John news that I had nevei- hoped for, dreamed of.\ \What is it--what is it * Tell me quick I want to h?ar if it is anythinir good.\ \Mr. Merton has canceled the mort- gage, released me from debt, both the in- terest and principal, and says any time I need any further assistance, if I will let him know I shall have it.\ , \I am so glad, it puts new life into me,\ said the now happy wife. \But what can have come over Mr. Mer* tonf \I do not know. It seems strange after the way he talked to me yesterday morning. I v.-iil go right over to his office and tell hint how happy he has made us.\ He found pressed hi.- _ _ \What could have induced you;'' he asked, \to show us so much kindness i\ \I followed your suggestions,\ vt-plicd Mr. Merton, \and put myssdf i-n \ntw phtctf. I expect that it will surprise you very much to learn that t're stnin-g«; traveler to whom you showed MI niiirll ki-ndi-ntss was myself.\ \Indeed '.\ exclaimed Mr. Bishop, 'can that be true I How did you disguise yourself so well'?\ \I was not so much disguised after ail, but you could not very readily associate Mr. Morton, the lawyer, with a -poor wayfaring man --ha! ha! ha!\ laughed Mr. Merton. \Well it is a good joke,\ said Mr. B'shop ; \good in more senses than one. It has terminated very uleasantly f<>r me.\ \I was surprised,\ said Mr. Merlon, \at the bread and liberal views y-oW ex- pressed of men and their actions gener- ally. I supposed I had greatly the ad- vantage over yoxt in means, education and culture ; yet how cramped and nar- row minded have been my \iews beside yours ! That wife of yours is an esti- mable woman, and that boy of yours will be an honor to any mail, 1 tell you, Bishop,\ said the lawyer, becom- ing animated, \you are rich-*-rich be- yond what money ean make you. You buy Mi', Mertoii in, and ex- gratitude in glowing terms. , Oct, 10, 1874. MR. HUMPHRIES :—Autumn is with us, but io me she seems a stranger. In - stead of coming with bustle of fickle winds and falling leaves, and pouring upon us condensed sunshine in tints of golden brown, scarlet and orange, until nature blushes like a staid matron caught in the trappings of the school girl, she quietly steals along like a pale little lady in russet brown and faded green, not much given to smiles or tears. Vivid visions of October glories come to me, and my heart aches for ft sight of: the scarlet maples, for the woods, gay with their many colored leaflets, and even a glimpse of orchards in their fruitage would seem dear. We have the glory of the sky that nothing can rival, The deep blue tints dissolving in pearl and opaline, and their transparency, as though only a mist from the \golden shore\ hangs between yon and Heaven's glory. Beer into their depths, and you soon dream of the holy land'—-your heart fills with longings to get a little closer to God, Old time mem- ories, hallowed by joys or griefs of \de-. parted days\ throng about you, you feel \the touch of a vanished hand,\ and hear \the sound of a voice that is still.\ Come back to reality you must, but 'tis with softened' moods, and, for the time, chastened desires. Never shall I forget Southern skies, but the sunlight, except in winter, I do not like. Instead of mellow drifts of light, as you now have, ours is a brassy, gari&h light, as unlike as the creeping in of the morning sun is t o the blaze of kerosene. By and by, however, it will soften to perfection. We have no beautifully tinted leaves ' —the frosts are too late. They turn brown, shrivel and fall, and as each va- riety can have its own time, there are no leaf-beds. The catalpas and a few shrubs are bare, the china trees are luxuriant in leaves and ripening waxy berries^ wMch. later will hang in clusters from the na- ked branches, while the oak and Orange are green the year around, the new leaves coming on gradually, their lighter tints taking the place of the dark green of the older leaves. Koses we have all through th«j winter, To me, this combination of dry, sere foliage with green is unpleasant. It does not suggest the healthy fullness of the old j'ear, but a blight. Gives one to dream of the touch oi sin, of the blight of remorse. Who has not seen the one who should be just in life's prime, learning to grow old gracefully, come with bent form and unquiet sottl to these later years, because of early excesses in study or pleasure, or indulgence in fretful moods, which is a sin against the soul, as the former are against the body. Such, to me, seems the Southern an- tuinn-^-a season of premature decay in- stead of the rightful signs of age, the wai-mth of the air probably inducing this, by cheating one into forgetting proper dates. (Bear with me.) What a les- son is set for Us in nature. As the cloS'- ing of the year brings also the comple- tion of her gifts, the richest season of vegetable life when foliage gives way to fruit, so the latter years of man should contain all the gifts- and graces gathered through life. Not one of value need we ics'.

God breathe upon the stone and guide the carver's hand. At the present political matters are hushed. Whether the quiet is deceitful or is to. contiiiue none can know, but we, who have nothing to do with politics, feel no anxiety. The various political jour- nals are, of course, filled with smothered gunpowder., The Sugar Bowl says of Kellogg : \He can reign royally in New Orleans, and so can any thief with gun- boats and gatlin guns at his beck and c:>! 1. Wherever there is a garrison, there a decree from Kellogg will be lawful and good. But he must have money, money, it will be necessary not levy taxes but, to collect them. Therein lies the ultimate good of the revolt. He will not collect -these-taxes. His collectors, his assessors, his spies, his informers, Ins dogs of agents, and constables, the landowners mean to shoot. That is what they ordered the muskets for, that were seized the other day. That's what they .have been organizing, arming and drilling for during the past twelve- months. (So it was not to protect them from being massacred by the blacks after all. Thanks,). That's what all the good people Of the Union want them to do.. (Doubtful.) That's whatOodinhis infinite justice will pardon them for doing. But the federal anny, what of that 1 What of Emory 1 of Brooks ? of cavalry or- dered to do patrol duty 1 of infantry sent Out as skirmishers ? Sufficient unto the day is the 'evil thereof. Louisiana is a land of bayous, of lakes, of lagoons, of interminable cypress swamps, of cane brakes impervious to all save men who hunt and are hunted, and of unsurpassed ambuscades twenty miles long.\ So that's it, Our boys say: \Well let them begin another fuss, but they'll find this time the 'niggers' will not stay home and take care of their crops, and their wives and children.\ The article I have copied from was to show that the last revolt was not labor lost. One of the arguments was, \It illustrated the uni- versal odium attached to the despotism Grant has set up.\ Another, \It made plain that there was a powerful armed organization ready for •battle.\ (The ital- ics are theirs. Franklin is quiet, the White Leaguers, have subsided, but they send out messages that \assassination will be the order of the day if Kellogg's officials are contin- ued in office.\ They mean, if republicans hold the power, That many think they mean business is evident as some of the officials ate trying to get the colored candidate for a seat in the House to withdraw, £s an appointment of a man of different color might be less exaspera- ting to the White League. This is more noticeable as the plan originated with the Parish Judge, E. B. Mentz, who, hereto- fore, has been almost reckless in his bravery. The man deserves more than a passing mention, but before giving it, let me apologize. I am not at all sure thatthisthatl select to writeyouwillprove interesting. I cannot put myself in your place, but if I were with you, these things I should certainly tell you, and that is the rule I have followed in writ- ing you, The Judge is a Iloosier. After a long search, he was the only man to be found who dai-e take the place of Judge Pope, the man who was so brutally murdered in '68. He isabout thirty, well educated, of gentlemanly appearance, tall, fair, with blue eyes, and auburn hair and moustache^ quite the man of the world, and would be called \irresistible\ by our fair devotees of' fashhm, there is but lit- tief •• indicate hiscourageinhis personnel, and he carries neither pistol nor knife. Probably the rebs. were disappointed in him. His enemies call him \the hero of so many duck fights,\ because, instead of shooting a man down, like a gentle- man, he uses nature's weapons. He wears boots made about three inches longer than the foot, nearly pointed, and these with his length of limb, which is great, are his chief dependence. A man, who was noted for his murders, once drew a pistol upon him, but while his finger Was on the trigger, the Judge brought his length of tqes to bear upon the man's arm, the pistol flew, and so did the holder of it, and before he was let alone he was a more kneaded if not a better man. For a long time after coming, so frequent were the attacks upon him that he wore a shield, and eighteen months ago (it was needed during and following theelection of '72,) it again saved his life. A man drew a sword cane and made such a thrust at. him that the sword point, coming bi such violent contact with the shield^ was badly bent. The long-toed boots and agile limbs again came in play, and with such effect that the Village bully left and pitched his tent in Texas. He (Mentz) is always the champion of fair play. The Home boys were, if alone in Franklin, often attacked by gangs of the city boys, who would worry and ill-treat '. the poor little fellows, whose only safety was in flight, At one time a white boy of fifteen, belonging here, was set upon in this way a little outside of the village, when unexpectedly Judge Wentz came upon the scene. Ordering tiie torment- ors back, he talked with the other, then made the attacking party, One at a time come forward, and bade Willie \go a t him,\ which he did until all were satis- fied. Any number of stories are told, enough to make one laugh, and also ad- mire theman's daring. Don't think him a rowdy because he fights so well. He is as far as possible from it, and all say he is very amiable and quiet if treated well. He will even smile and joke the cowards when under a shower of brick- bats—that is if none hit him—but wo be unto the thrower of the lucky missile, (unlucky for the thrower, however), A manlessdetermined to look out for No. 1 could not have staid two weeks in Frank- lin. Even his political enemies are forced to respect him, (it will not prevent them stabbing in the dark),and the belles of the village would gladly espouse the side of the North if it was represented by the polished Judge Wentz. Rumor says that a \faire ladye\ of the North sent him back here, last summer, under promise to do his best for the temper- ance cause at all events he has given up his beer, he saysj in which, low be i t Bpoken, he Occasionally indulged. Cotton picking has begun, with pros- pects of a good yield. Oranges areslow- ly ripening. Pecans and grapes scarce. Apples from thirty to fifty cents a dozen. They are from the north and west,.«and scarce. New corn meal, the house-keep- ers delight, is an old story. Sweet potatoes not yet harvested, but nice to eat, and dug iu gardens. Irish potatoes are nev- er raised in large quantities, only as they are dug and eaten from the ground. They soon rot. They are $7.00 per bbl. in N. O., rotten ones not counted extra. Cellars are unknown, as water under- ground often prevents their being dug, and as vegetables can be raised all win- ter, there i3 but little to store. No fruit is canned, and all sweetmeats arc made very rich, and then are difficult to keep.
