Te who once were with me groping,
Ere ye passed the mystic stream,
Ye who hold life's utmost hoping,
A3 a rain unquiet dream ;
Look with pity on my striving,
Forgive my paltry hopes arid fears,
Ye who know the worth of living,
Since ye dwelt in Argent spheres.
Come to me some kindred spirit,
With a message to deliver,
From the land that ye inhabit,
Beyond the " border river."
My soul sometime delighted,
Hath a vision of a wife,
Soul unto soul units-d,
Life mated unto Life ;
To her spirit's living dwelling,
Shall 1 come as I am real,
Ere the message speeds foretelling,
I must pass to the ideal?
Guide mc, ye the superhuman,
Ere tny earthly race be run,
Guide me to the chosen woman,
The very darling one
That the Fates ordained my equal,
Not aboje me not below
Let me read a happy sequel,
To Life's Romance ere I go.
Let her come, in radiant seeming,
Wliifor spirit in ber our,
"Life fulfills its dearest dreaming,
Only when she draweth near."
Life r.mong tlie IVottiiigliani Lace
makers. One of Professor Leone Levi's recent
sketchesf the condition of the working
classes in England gives an interesting ac-
count of the Nottingham lace trade. This
industry has increased very largely during
the past five years ; the number of opera
tives employed in 1801 Laving been but
51,000 in England and Wales, against 13j,
000 in Nottingham alone in 18G6.
In the lace manufacture the earnings of
men are usually exceedingly good. Many
of them will earn some 2 or 3 a week,
and some even C or 8. Mr. Felkin, in
a paper read before the British Associa
tion last summer, gave the wages of men
employed in making machines, bobbins,
O carnages, points, guides combs, needles,
etc.. at 33s. a week, on an average. In the
larger factories, the first? class leavers"
hands earn 35s. a week, a much larger
number 25s., and many no more than ICs.
to 20s. a week. The boys employed in
clearing, winding or threading bobbins
earn their 5s. a week. And among the
women employed the white menders earn
12s., lace folders, 10s., and overlookers
Professor Levi says : It is truly surpris
ing to see Hie roughest cotton or the most
beautiful silk suddenly transformed, by
the agency of that complicated instrument,
into the finest Iloniton or Tambour lace.
infinitely more perfect than ihe most edu
cated fingei-3 could achieve : a wonder,
moreover, of precision, uniformity and
cleanliness. The introduction of the Jac
quard machine, for the purpose of orna
ment in large patterns for flounces and
shawls of great beauty and valne, was
itself) an era in the manufacture of lace.
Nor has the warp machine lost its ground
altogether with the advance of the twist
lace for light and fancy nets of a useful
and elegant character the warp is still
used with excellent effect. At the London
International Exhibition of 1852, it was
reported by the juries, that in England
there were 3,552 bobbin-net machines, of
which 1.212 were of plain net ; 1,057 of
fancy net, and 353 standing. The exports
of lace, trimming and hoisccy from Eng
land amount to nearly 1,000,000.
Although a good deal of the lace mami
faclure is carried on in large factories,
(3nd is, therefore, subject to the Factory
Acts, different branches of the business
are as yet unaccountably omitted. In the-
same building a portion of the operations
is under the factory laws, and another
portion, employing almost as many per
sons, is exc limed irom their supervision.
O Yet. iff lace, finishing and the making up
of lace, which includes separating the
breadth of lace bv drawing out a thread,
Qmending, joining lengths together, com
pleting patterns, pearling, grafting, card-
U mg, setting on by facings ot colored pa
per, clipping or removing superfluous
threads from the edges, and bonnet-front
making, the nature of the employment
and the condition of the warehouses are in
some eases more iniurious to health than
the dressing rooms.
The social condition of the operatives is
thus described: A most pleasing feature
in the manufacturing towns of Notting
hamshire and Leicestershire is the combi
nation of the close labor of the factory and
workshop with the healthy and invigorat
ing light labor of a flower or kitchen gar
den. All round the town of Nottingham
a large space of ground is laid out in gar
den land, and let out to the workmen in
small lots of 100 to GOO square yards at
the very small rent of about 7s. per quar
ter, more or less. The tenant builds a
small cottage on his land, sometimes only
a plain hut for shelter, lie goes there
early in the morning, and after his work
in thDevening, to cultivate the land, and
when there is no work to do in town he
has always this source of useful employ
ment". Though the piece of ground is
kept mainly for pleasure and for the cul
tivation of flowers, usually potatoes, tur
nips, and cabbages are also planted, and
their proceed not only suffice to jmy the
small rent, but leave a certain amount of
profit. For the preservation of health,
nothing could be better than such a pro
vision, w hile in an educational aspect, the
constant proximity to nature's unfathom
able beauties must have a considerable in
fluence in enlightening the mind and en
livening the imagination of the operatives;
Would that some such arrangement were
possible in this great Babylon of industry !
How needful, how important, not only "to
preserve, but to increase the extent of our
parks and pleasure grounds in every part
of this densely crowded manufacturing
The houses of laborers are small, but
comfortably furnished. In Nottingham
0 tlieJ generally exhibit all the signs of
plenty. In other parts, however, such as
Towchester, in Northamptonshire, and
Newport ragnell.in Buckinghamshire, the
dwellings of the laboring classes are often
small, overcrowded, and ill-ventilated.
As we might expect, whoro so large a
number of girls are assembled, marriages
Prof. Levi adds : The lace manufacture
is a striking evidence of the immense
utility of machinery. Ilgrs wo tare an
instance where machinery not only im
proved but created industry. Ihe labor

the immediate inconvenience to them-
selves. Nor can they in a moment realize
iue iuei inut me mauuniciurer, in ttuupuiig
a new" machine, instead of acting upon
caprice, obeys an irresistible law which
compels him to do his best to economize
the cost ot production.
After all, however, the laborers are not
long in discovering that what is good for
the world at large is beneficial to them
selves also, and the evil of the change is
confined to the uneducated or infirm, who
unable to adapt themselves to the exigen
cies of a new occupation, are thereafter
powerless to earn their livelihood. In his
address to the Department of Economy -
and Trade, at York, Mr. Chadwick stated
that whilst in 1810 a lace-making machine
made a square yard of plain lace in two
hom-3. and the iinisued yard was sold for
5, recently the machine made u square
yard of the same net in five minutes, which
was sold in 18G0 at (Id.; but that neverthe

The Roman Catholic priests in Belgium
and elsewhere are in the habit of adorning
themselves with lace vestments, and cele
brating their rites before altars decorated
with new and gorgeous lace cloths, imag
ining them to have been wrought in nun
neries or by the faithful of the Roman
Catholic flock. But in lucf the buvd labor
of the poor worker of that flock, who was
toiling hard at five meshes a minute for
poor wages, which rendered unnecessary

reflects on facts like these, all his opposi

First Work in Spring. No farm is
complete without a good garden. There
should be a succession of vegetables that
there may be full supplies through the
season. When the first peas are well up
the second crop should be planted : beets
should be planted at different times, and
sweet corn every two weeks from May 1st
to July 1st. In the orchard, suckers of
last year's growth should be removed, and
all loose bark scraped .from the trunks, for
here are myriads of insects. I oppose cut
ting off large limbs unless decayed. I
have seen whole orchards ruined by inju
dicious pruning. Small limbs which keep
out the sun light may be removed. Before
the grass starts all meadows should be
examined to remove obstruction to the
mowing machines, and the fences looked
to, paricularly those dividing farms. A
meadow that will not yield more than a
ton of grass to the acre is to be broken up.
Cow-Pox. Mr. A. Cheuveau has shown
that what is called spontaneous cow or
horse-pox can be produced at will by
simply introducing virus into the lympha
tics, instead of into the blood-vessels.
Eight horses were experimented upon by
him, confirming this view, and he there
fore concludes the power of the vaccine
scab is suspended in the air, from whence
it is introduced into the lungs of cattle.
