3. Never take upon yourself to be

read lectures to her except 'affection

example, and practice virtue yourself

4 Command her attention by

exact anything from her that you
would not be willing he should ex

which will excite her to kind offices.
6. All women are vain ; in somV
their vanity U insufferable. Never
wound this vanity, not even in the

G. When a woman gives wrotg

dress with taste, and particularly with

10. Never be curious unnecessari

but obtain her confideuco by 'that

her entirely mistress of her own ac

sees fit. "A husband ought to raake
his company so amiable to hi3 wife
that she will not be inclined to seek
any other ; then she will not look for
pleasure abroad, if he does not pars

The Treasury Seal. Tbe Phila

to the fact that the seal used by the
Treasury has never received the sane

history cf its original adoption is
veiled in obscurity. We know that
a committee had been appointed to
j a a ,nocei (OT a seal. and that it
reported two, one of which is at pres
ent in use in the Department. The
report of the committee, so far as is
known, was never acted upon by
Congress, so that, it is claimed, the
Treasury seal is not one authorized
by the proper authority. The qucs

a part of Washington Territory of
vrhich but little has hitherto been

in oar columns :
. IjELLING ltaii BaV, Aug. CI, 1SGS.
Ed. Statesman :
Understanding that a large immi
gration has crossed the plain3 this sea
son to settle on the Pacific slope, and
that a large portion thereof would
pass through your valley, branching
off from there in different iirectios, I
propose through your colarns to give
a description of this portion of the
Te.rrit(iry"(hhhertO So "little known)
for the benefit of those who are seek
ing a home in our midst. Whatcom
county, including the disputed islands,
contains upward of ten thousand
square miles of land ; its" population
is about 450 white male adults ; 23
white female adults, and about CO
white children. It is the extreme
north "western portion ot the Terri
tory, being bounded on the north and
west by the British and U. S. bound
ary line. It contains by far the
largest amount of rich agricultural
lands of any county west of the Cas
cade mountains ; but owing to the
want of roads, and its isolated posi
tion from the line of travel on the
Sound, but few farmers have reached
here yet. The Skagit river drains
the southern portion of the county,
along the banks of which are large
tracts of rich bottom lands, where
hundreds of settlers could obtain good
firms by clearing alder, maple and
brush ; there is co prairie land on
this river, but great portions of it
could be. easily cleared ; there are
about twenty settlers located there ;
no white women. Immediately west
of the mouth of the Skagit are what
is called the Swanomish Hats, a body
of low prairie land about six miles
square, connecting Fidalgo Island
with the main land. These fiats are
overflowed by the extreme high tides
j in winter, but never in summer, and
by dyke'mg they can be kept quite
dry, and put in the highest degree of
cultivation; fur pasture lands they
are unequalled in the Territory. So
says every stranger who sees them ;
thousands of tons of wild grass can
be cut there every year. A slough
(roes through the fi its, through which
mall steamers and boats can pass at
high water, affording a navigable
route from the upper portion of the
Sound to Bellingham Bay, north of
Whidby's Island, giving settlers the
means c f obtaining supplies and send
ing their produce to market in any
direction. There is but one family
on the fiats yet, Mr. Dodgp, who has
not been one year on his claim, and
has over forty acres in crop ; about a
dozen claims are taken, and there is
nearly a "hundred left. On Fidalgo
Island, contaning about fifty square
miles, there are some very rich tracts
of land. Ou Beale's Bay, on the west
side of the island,, there is about a
thousand acres of prairie, on which
there are some IS settlers, two white
families, and a logging camp of some
20 men. North from the Swanomish
tlats about two miles are the Samish
flats, of the same description, and
about half as extensive as the Swa
nomish. Twelve miles north from
there, brings you to Whatcom, the
county seat, situated on Bellingham
Bay, half a mile from which are the
Bellingham Bay coal mines, which
have just been reopend on a large
and extensive scale, ready to deliver
hundreds of tons per day. A new
wharf is now being built, at which
two large vessels can be: loaded at
once. There are about one handred
persons employed at these mines, and
about fifty more miners are wanted.
From this point along the foot of
the mountains to the' boundary line,
17 miles, thence along the boundary
line to Simiahmoo, about oO miles,
thence back along the shore to the
starting point, encloses a body of rich
agricultural land. The Lumen river
runs through it ; one mouth empty
ing into Bellingham Bay, another into
the Gulf of Georgia. On this river
there are some strips of prairie, and
many valuable claims could be had
by clearing brush, vine maple and
alder. This portion of the country
is part of a large and extensive coal
field, extending north into Biitish
Columbia, which will soon be largely
developed, affording a market for the
farmers who may try their fortunes
here. Withio the disputed territory
are three large islands, Orcas, Lopez,
and San Juan, on each of which are
large bodies of good land. -Immigrants
will bo able to crous the Sno
oualaiie Pass this fall, and drive Ihcir
wagons to Seattle, from whence a
steamer plys weekly to Bellingham
Day. The greatest want of .Wash
ington Territory is single women, and
in no part of it is that want greater
than in WThatcom county. Any farm
er coming here to settle with several
marriageable daughters, would have
little to pay for help in the way of
house-raising, log-rolling, &c. Any
one seeing this and desiring any more
definite information can have it by
addressing me at this place. I have
lived here over fifteen years, arid will
be pleased to furnish any one w?th
information on any subject connected
with this country. '
Edward Eld ridge. '
v TirE Cattle disease.' i
Dr. Harris, accompanied by the
President of the New York Board of
Health, Professor Busteed, of tbe
Veterinary College of New York ;
Professor Liautard, of the Ve terinary
College, Paris ; Dr. Weisse, and
other members of the profession,
visited the abattoirs of Comrn'nnU
paw, recently, to examine tbe car.
cases of cattle said tobe infected with
the plague from the West. The
animal alive shows a certain degree
of lassitude, a dull eye, and is gen
erally weak and poor. On examin
ation of its intestines the kidneys
showed a fatty condition, while some
portions of it presented a. less solid
condition than naturarpand the ex
tirior .was of mettled appearance.
The main intestine was excoriated,
and presented numerous black spots,
having the appearance of having
been burned with caustic. The urine
was bloody. All the cattle coming
to Cotnmunipaw in this condition are
from Illinois, but they have been
previously pastured with Texan cat
tle, in which alorie the disease, if any
exists, is found. The Texan cattle,
however, are known to be infected
with ticks, a species of cattle lice of
an enormous size, which would alone
account for several of the symptoms
of plague, so-called that is poorness
of condition, the excoriation of the
stomach produced by tbe animals
swallowed, the color and appearance
of tbe contents of the bladder, etc.
A number of cattle in this condU
tion have come to Cotrrmunipaw
during the past few days, but only
a very few of them were sold to a
Williamsburg batcher, and these
were immediately repurchased by the
agent of the owner; hence it is all
but certain that so far no diseased
cattle have got in the market. The
whole of the stock diseased , or hav
ing been pastured or shut up with
diseased animals were, by order of
Mr. Fitch, the saent of the owner,
Mr. Alexander, killed and sent to the
rendering vats. No otucr herds were
infected on their arrival.
In addition to the examination of
the abattoir made on Sunday, Dr.
Harris has mada minute examination
of various portions of the animals,
and finds that certain portions of the
intestines are diseased. But at the
examination on Monday the opinion
was expressed that the flesh of the
animal was perfectly sound, though
the fat presented a peculiarly yellow,
jaundiced appearance. It was pre
sumed that the partaking of such
meat might produce sickness such as
Precautions have been taken to
prevent the selling of any diseased
cattle at Communipaw by the ap
pointment of additional officers, and
Governor Wrard, of New Jersey, has
given orders to have all diseased cat
tle, or cattle exposed to others dis
eased, stopped on their entrance to
the State of New Jersey, if any dis
ease exists tt is certainly deleterious
to health and cannot be detected by
ordinary buyers, hence the only
means of preventing the ill effects of
it is by cuttiDg o3" the source of sup
ply, which iu in the case of diseased
meats has been effectually done by
the authorities of the States of New
York and New Jersey. The primary
cause of the disease, however, seems
to come with -the Texan cattle, but
the native herds are not in the least
infected, as is proved by a drove ot
sixty-four smt down from Illinois
from a farm where no Texan cattle
had been pastured. They arrived
here perfectly sound.
One of the operatives of Rich
ard & Co.'s paper mill, at Gardiner,
(Me.), found a diamond cluster pin
in the rags. It is 'ft-orihone handred
dollars or more. This is the second
time that a diamond pin has been
found 'within a year. All such treas
ures are allowed by the proprietors
ai the perquisite of the girls who
pick the rag over.

road is the wings on which we fly

A railroad, the . philosopher's
stone t which turns , everything- it
touches into old, and it comes to ns
freighted with: wealth. It is the
richest investment which the world
affords, and as saclt is specially , en
joined upon us,, . , , ..--'.
No man can excuse himself from
the investment. To those who would
lay away their dollar safely, instead
of putting it where it would increase
ten fold, we commend the parable of
the talents. When the nobleman
started to go into a far country, he'
called his servants together aad gave
to each of them a talent. And when
he returned and demanded an account
of their stewardship the servant who
had invested his talent in railroads
said, " Lord, thy talent has gained
ten talents," and he ; was given : au
thority over ten cities. And the next
servant who had invested his talent
in railroads, walked forward and said,
" Lord thy talent has gamed five tal
ents," and he was given authority
over rive cities. And the third ser-
vant who did not believe in railroads,
being a regular old seed, boosed for
ward and said, ' Lord, behold, here
is thy talent which I have kept laid
away in a napkin," and hereupon the
Lord ordered him to be skinned like
an eel And why? Because, in
stead of investing the , money, and
doing something with if, he had peg
ged around with his talent done up
in his shirt-tail, the same as all anti
railroad men do. It is clearly to be
seen 4tlu.lujLj3arflbIeil)aJ. i

fossils among us who have their tal

Prohisixg to Marry the Girl.
We yesterday beard rather a good
story on. one of our city ministers,
says an Eastern exchange.' f During
last winter a revival was in progress
in one of the country churches near
the city. Among the regular attend
ants on the meeting was a beautiful
and estimable, but rather unsophisti
cated young lady, w hose friends were
very anxioU3 to have her unite with
the church. v -
She seemed, however, reluctant to
do so ; and the minister in question
was requested to "talk to her.;' This
he did several times, on one occasion
saying, in a jocular manner'4 Miss
M , if you'll join the church' I'll
marry you," meaning he would per
form the ceremony. The girl seemed
pleased with, the proposition, and a
few evening3 after walked up to the
altar and united with the chnrch. '
Several weeks after this the minis
ter preached at the church, aud after
the services met the young lady.
"Brother ," said she, "you
promised to marry me if Fd join the
church. A re you going to do sp ? I
don't want to wait any longer." The
minister? saw bis dilemma; and ai,
tempted to explain. "I meant' I
would perform the ceremony,' he
said, " that's all. . I can't marry you
myself, for 1 am already married, and
love my wife too much to desire to
swap her off for another."
The young lady became indignant,
declared that she'd leave the church,
and that she never did have much
faith in these town prer.chers." Our
ministerial friend declares that he
will never again use any other than
plain scriptural argument to induce a
young lady to join, the church.
