Hereditary Business. Mr. Mor
gan is now vtlie bead of Morgan & Co.,
the successors of George Peabody & Co.
In tbe whole history of Mr. Peabody per
haps nothing has surprised English peo
ple more than the loss of his name iu the
commercial world. To perpetuate a busi
ness and the name of its founder is the
ambition of an Englishman. With us,
as a rule, a merchant, when a fortune has
beeu gained, retires from business. It is
never so in England. The money made
goc3 to increase the business. There is
hardly a baukiog house in Lombard
street which does not trace its origin to
the goldsmiths, who settled there before
the reign of Edward II. llankcy & Co.,
in Frenchurch stieet, have account books
of that firm kept in the 1.6th century.
There are drapers in St. Swithin's lane
who made court suits . for Charles I.
Fishmongers' Hall, on London bridge,,
possesses records or existing hrm3 that
dealt in Billingsgate when James I. came
from Scotland, and served salmon for the
royal feast. The Skinners' Company, in
corporated in 1327, enrolled members in
the leather trade whose ancestrs were
the cordwainers of court 300 years ago.
It is the pride of an Englishman to per
petuate a business long in his family.
The brewery which Dr. Johson sold in
1781, as one of the executors of Mr,
Tarale, to Mr. Barclay and Mr. Perkins
for 135,000 is that saice gigantic con
cern of Barclay, Perkins & Co. which
now pays excise annually to'" government
on 150,000 quarters of malt. Hence,
when George I'eabody took his name, as
well as his person, from a business which,
to the admiration of Londoners, had in a
lifetime achieved a reputation rarely won
in a century, no explanation was satis
factory; aud even now Morgan & Co., are
better known in the city a3 Peabody's
than by auy other incorporated name.
IIow to Court in Church. -A
young gentleman happening to sit at
church in a pew adjoining oue in which
sat a young lady ot whom he conceived a
suddeu and violent passion, was desirous
of entering into a courtship on the spot,
but the place not being suitable for an
informal declaration, the case suggested
the following plan. He politely handed
his fair neighbor a Bible opened, with a
pin stuck in the following text Second
Epistle of John, verse five "and now I
beseech thee, not as though I wrote a
new commandment unto thee, but that
which we had from the beginning, that
we love one another." -
She returned it, pointing to the sec
ond chapter of ; lluth, tenth verse :
"Then she fell on her face, and bowed
herself to the ground and said to him :
"Why have I found grace in thine eyes,
seeing I am a stanger ?"
He returned the book, pointing to the
thirteenth verse of the third Epistle of
John: "Having many things to write
unto you, I would not write with pen and
ink, but I trust shortly to come unto you
to speak face to face, that your joy may
1( rom the above interview a
took place the ensuing week.
A curious ease has just been tcied in
the New Orleans courts. The children
of a blind mendicant having been enticed
away by another professional beggar, the
.father brought suit. One of the witness
es testified that nine out of ten, who are
led about as blind, have good, sound
eyes. The plan to make blind beggars is
this: The im posters secure a piece of
peculiar bluestone, which when dissolved
in water will make fifteen men blind for
four days. The lids of the eyes are then
tattooed with 4he liquid which acts as an
astringent, and the beggar cannot see
until the effect wears off. The lids are
tightly closed, and if they are forced
open, there ia a-temporary film over the
pupil whieh would deceive any but the
most pkillful oculisf. The judge sentenced
the men who had enticed away the boy
and the mother of the boy to six months
in the workhouse in default of a one
thousand dollar bond for good behavior.
It is interesting to know that these one
thousand dollar bonds were given by the
beggars . on the spot. One of the de
fendants had three thousand dollars on
his person and a certificate of deposit
for twelve thousand dollars more.

friends but they cannot do us an injury

Marion County Teacher's Association.
This association held its ninth cssion
in Salem, coiumoucing Docember 28th,
1SG8, and continuing three and af half
days. The following proceedings were
forwarded to us, with the request to pub
lish, last week, but were received too
late for insertion in that issue. We pub
lish as requested :
About fifty of its members were pres
ent, thirty of whom are active teachers.
All who are versed in the history of
the Association, unite iu saying that this
has been the most lively and profitable
session ever held since its organization.
Salem vvaa chosen as the place for
holding the next, or tenth session.
Part 1st. Clark's Practical Grammar
was the subject of discussion, and
through the energy and ambition of the
teachers, it was thoroughly aud critically
investigated. A short time was also de
voted to the discussion of Mathematics.
Several uice principles were elucidated
in Algebra and Arithmetic.
The literary exercises constituted an in
teresting feature of the session.
An essay written by Prof. S. W. King,
upon the subject of "Free Schools," was
read by Mr. Jos. L. Carter. The strange
but beautiful poem The Haven was
read by 3Ir. O. D.,Done. Extracts were
also recited by Messrs. E. 1'. Smith, J.
M. Garrison 'and Miss Nellie F. Taylor.
Declamations were delivered by Prof,
llamscy, J. Dcnuison and Thomas Coon.
On Tuesday evening, Hon. 11. P. Boise
addressed the Association upon the sub
ject of education. The house was crowd
ed, and the address was full of truth.
The first number of "The Teachers'
Offering" was thou read by the editor,
Mr." J. L. Carter.
On Wcdne-sday evening, Dr. Peyton
delivered a brief but very able lecture,
upon-tli3 subject of Physiology.
After which the second number of
"The Teachers' Offering" was read by the
editress, Miss Ellen Chamberlin.
The exercises throughout were inter-
sperced with music Miss Sertrudo
Moores presiding at the organ.
The following resolutions were passed ;
Resolved, 1st. That the thanks of this
Association are hereby gratefully tend
ered to the citizens of Salem and vicin
ity for the generous hospitality with
which they have entertained those at
tending the present session of this As
sociation. 2d- That our thank3 arc due and arc
hereby tendered to the committee on
nlusic for the pleasure they have afforded
us, by the active part they have taken
in our Associasion.
3d. That our thanks are hereby ten
dered to the executi.e committee for the
able manner in which thair various du
ties have been performed. f
4th. That the thanks of the Associa
tion are hereby tendered to Hon. Keuben
P. Boise and Dr. Pay ton for the interest
they have manifested in our prosperity.
5th. That the Secretary be instructed
to furnish the leading papers of the State
with copies of these resolutions, together
with an abstract of proceedings with a
request for their publication.
During the session sixteen new names
were added to the list, which increases
our numbers to one hundred and thirty
eight. We surely have more reason to
be encouraged now than ever before.
Several of the most prominent citizens of
Salem have manifested an interest in our
behalf, and have resolved to unite their
influence with ours in diffusing intelli
gence and banishing ignorance. Among
those who- have joined the Association,
are those occupying the highest positions
in the educational affairs of the State,
and with their sympathies and useful co
operation, a glorious future is predicted
for the Marion County Teachers' Associa
tion. Our great purpose is to unite our
labbrs in such a manner as will best pro
mote the cause of education, which bears
With it prosperity and happiness.

A strange Old Story.
The editor of the Pall Mull Gazette
publishes the following curious letter:
Sir : The incident you have quoted
as a "singular variation on the 'Enoch
Arden' romance," reminds me of an older
oue to which you will perhaps allow me
to call attention as an authentic example
of the most moral, manly, English, and
constitutional behavior, under such "tol
erable and not-to-be:bovne" circumstan
ces. It is mentioned in Lysou's "En
virons" as from an entry in the parish
register of Bermondsey, A. D. 1604:
"The forme of a solemn vowe made
betwixt a man and his wife, having bene
long absent, through which occasion the
woman being"niarried to another inanhe
tooke her aair as followeth
"This -Man's Speech. Elizabeth
myibeloved wife, I aia right sorie that 1
have so long absented mysealfe from thee,
whereby thou shouldest be occasioned to
take another man to be thy husband
Therefore I do now vowe and promise,
iu the sight of God and this companie, to
take thee again as mine owne, and will
not! only forgive thee but also dwell with
thee, and do all other duties unto ihec as
I promised at our marriage,
MThe Woman's Speech. Raphe, my
belpved husband I am" right sorie that I
have iu thy absense taken another man
to be my husband j but here, before God
and this eompanie, I do denounce aud
forsake him, and do promise to kepo my
sealfe ouly unto thee duriug'life, aud to
perform all other duties which I first
promised unto thee in our marriage."
Then- follows a short "occasional
prayer," and the entry concludes with
the names of the parties, and attestation
of the "parson, clerk," etc. I regret
that I cannot find any "speech" of the
other mm s to complete this notice, but
I hope some exemplary records of his
sentiments mayyet be discovered by local
antiquarians ; or that in the opposite
case, we may indulge 3n the reasonable
conjecture that he gave a cordial consent,
hy silence, to the termination of his ex
perience of matrimony. I remain, sir,
'-yours most obediently.

The Angel's Charity. Once upon
a time a poor man sheltered an angel in
his thatched cottage. He rejoiced at
this high privilege with all his heart and
offered his holy guest everything he had.
The angel sat by his side half the night,
speaking heavenly wisdom about tho val
ue of faith and virtue. The next morn
ing, when he had taken leave of the poor
man, he took a match and set fire to the
cottage, which in a short time was burnt
to the ground.
The poor man was disconsolate at hav
ing no longer a roof to shelter him ; but
his distress was all the greater that his
guest whom he had so generously enter
tained could have brought about such an
event. He doubted the holiness of the
angel, and began to disbelieve all that
he had told him and taught him in the

And lo ! when he put his hand to the
work, in the old foundation he found a
great treasure, with which he was able
to build a house, and save riches besides.
Then he perceived the angel's charity,
and believed in the wise though unseen
Providence all the rest of his life.
The New York Observer speaks of the
horso race and the human race. It does
not beleive that those who attend horse
races "do it because they have so much
love for the horse, since they not unsel
dom abuse their horses unmercifull at
these places. This love which they bear
to horses is one that springs from the
gratification of certain selfish instincts,
and that has no scruples about sacrafic
ing the object of affection to pander with
its own passions. Is there any question,
it asks, as to whether the race-course is
to be included in the course of the christ
ian ? It is like attempting to make two
trains pass one another on the same track.

The Irish Boy's Song. A man go
ing to the station to take the train, heard
a little Irish boy singing,
j , There'll be no sorrow" there,
) , There'll be no Borrow there.
'"Where?" asked he, for his mind
was impressed by the words, "there'll be
no sorrow I" f The boy answered,
I , In heaven above, .
"!' Where all is love, -
' There'll be no sorrow there. . '
The man hastened on to take the train,
but he could not forget the simple words
of the hymn. A world where there is
no sorrow! This was the great thought
which filled his mind. He had been
an infidel, but now he resolved to become
a Christian, and he did become one, and
began to live a life of preparation for that
land where there is no sorrow. ,

The number of deaths from small pox
at the Sandwich Islands in 1852 was
estimated at 10,000. The principal cause
assigned for this terrible mortality was
want of proper ; vaccine matter. It was
considered unsafe to use that obtained
from the natives, as there is not one of
them whose system is entirely free from
all taint of disease. This is said, to be
a melancholy fact and is attributed to
the immorality not only of the present
generation, out or tnose preceding it.
