"Uo homo and make that," said be; "if there is any thing in you, it will come out." Alouc, in her own room, the young girl toiled over hor clay, and when sho had dono ber best carried tho result to her master. He looked at her model, broko it up, and baid, "Try again.'" Sho did try again, inoaldod feet and bands, and at last undertook a medallion of tho head of John Brown, which was pronounced ox cellont. - . The next essay was a bust of tho young hero, Colonoi Shaw, the first man who took command of a colored . regiment, and whoso untimely and glorious death, and the epitaph spoken by tho South, "Bury him with his niggors. nave made mm an immortal nauio in tho history of our civil war.

Among Miss Lewis's other werks are two small groups, illustrating Longfellow's poem of Hiawatha, Lothair, for an that new life iu which the woman receives, along with her child, a portion of i(s youth and freshness. I have seen the inconvenience patiently borno, the reward antici- Her first, "Hiwatha'a 'wooing," Pated. dai'8 and WC8ks to Feoious represents Minnehaha seated, making a pair of moccasins, and Hiawatha by her side, with a world of love and longing in bis eyes. In tho marriage, they stand sido by side, with clasped bands. In both, the Indian type of features is carefully preserved, and every detail of dress, &c , is true to nature ; the Bentiment is equal to the execution. They are charming tits', poetic, simple and natural; and no bappier illustrations of Longfol-low's most original poem wore ever made than those by tho Indian sculptor, A fino bust, also, of this same poet, is about to be put in marble, which has been ordered by Harvard Collcgo, and in this instance, at least old Harvard has done itself honor. If it will not yet open its doors to women who ask education at its hands, it will admit tho work of a woman who has educated horsclf in hor chosen department. Miss Lewis has a fine medallion portrait of Wendoll Phillips; a t haruiing group of sleeping babies, wuh hope to bo carelessly counted and dismissed. In such cases, the mother is a prophetess, and her child, when it comes, an emoodied Word of God. AVoe to any act or ouiishion that should silence it! The Get maris boast their ancient reverence for woman, too little reoognizabla to-day. But the Western theories to-day have the advantage. They are extending to world-wide application. They are drawing the children of the East like subtle magic. They are bringing their practical enlargement and correction to the one-sided scheming and dreaming of tho past. And this Western world woman is to bave a majostio place. Man is forced, on tho christian level, however superficially adopted, to pluee her besido him. So seated, sho appears bis equal. Tbo children belong as much to hor as to him, more to tho State, most to God's high providence, to bo trained as its conscious and wiling instrument. If woman in America knows what she doon, and why, title will place tho maternal dignity nt tbc fuun datiun of all others. , INSURANCE. Tho Lbt number of the Hearthstone contains the fallowing articlo 6n Life Insurunco, written CHpocially for it by Horace Grocly : Why Lives Should ho In cured. - BY IIOItACJS OHEEr.Y. Insurance; of whatever kind, is an effort to guard against tho mis ohuiievs and disasters whereof wo aro always in danger. Tho most capable, cnergi'tio and efficient merchant or manufacturer, lias ofton been reduced in ono hour from prosperity to banktru tcy by fire,'flyod or shipwreck." Insurance protects against tho ever-present peril of such calamity by devoting aishare of each year's trains to guard against the possibility ol rum. One lbousnd men have, this year, paid an average of $100 each fur firo insurance, and have scarcoly felt it; but one of their number has been burned, and would have thereby beon uttody ruined, but for tho $30,000 ho has received (rom an insurunco company in sat' isfaction oi lii.s'claim; and thut has set hiui fully on his feet again. The premiums paid wore scarcoly missed; tho insurance recdved made the difference betweon thrift nnd hopeless ruin. Not merely the rocoivcr but his creditors and cmployos, aro feneibly benefitted by bis prudenco and foresight. Lifo is the most precarious of human possessions, the must itidis pcnsable clement of a business career. I ho bankrupt of to-day, may next your, bo ou his feet again, busy and thrifty as ever r but death is tbo one interruption to an active career which is inevi tably final. And , death strikes wherever ho will, often sparing tho decrepit and debilitated to smite the sturdy and vigorous in early manhood, sealing the eyes that woro so lately Keenest un l bright est, in that sleep that knows no earthly waking. Out countrymen plungo into bu siness in early lifo Many a one, whoso means are moderate, is scarcely twenty-five when a wife and child, with an exteusvio fuetory or ware-houso, are among tho ob jects oi his caro. With a strong arm or active brain, and a resolute will, he gives himselt up to his calling, confident of his ability to achieve a "grand success. His ins oomo is considerable ; in ten year, it nothing goes amiss, he will have made enough to pluce him henoo- forth beyond tho reach- of want. But suppose he wcro suddenly tricken down by disoase, aud cut off from lifo before this yeur shall have closed, his property would hardly .pay his liabilities, and his widow nnd infant mut be thrown upon a ' world with which they aro unfitted to straggle. Tho kindnoos of relatives may shield them from the alms-house ; but their prospoot is bleak indeed. Life Insuranco is exactly calcula ted to meottlm exigency. While prosperous and healthy, ho can pay the small annual payment re quired to insure that $10,000, or at least $5,000, which shall be due them direotly after his death. The knowledge that they are thus sheilded from utter ddstilution is calculated to modify his anxieties nd apprehensions during lifo, and to divest death of its sharpest pang. Lifo Insurance is not a specula tion. He is nl-adviaed who pays a large sum yearly in tho cxpecta tion I had almost said tho hope-that the foeble octogenarian on whom he has riekod it will soon die, when he will be entitled to ro-ceive many thousands by virtue of his policy. I would counsel uo one to invest largely, even on his own life, much less on that of another. Yet there ate many . all around us who ought to take out policies at once, in defcronco, not merely to the seourity and comfort of their loved ones, bat to their own pence of mind as woll. Thy cannot afford to live iu constant dread of tho hazards and privations to which their untimely decease would expose those dearor to thuni than life itself. B"w:iro of frauds, and shams, and specious false pretenses. Pay no money for policies without knowing that you are insured in the fullest sense of the term. Make nquiry. ; know the character of the men to whom your money is to be aor-fided; nnd lo not deluded into oocpliiig tbc plans of weak, worth less or rrd -ponsibie associations. Proceed with wise and vigilant cir cum.poction, and you will lmve reason to blew the forecast that in ducod you to invest in Lifo la-suranco. The Stato University. 1 no annual examination closod on Tuesday at I, v. M. Tho clas ses examined wcro tbo Sophomore class in Latin, By Prof. Itobinsun ; tbo Junior class in botany, by Prof. Snow; tho clacs in physical geo graphy, by Prof. Eraser; tho ele mentary class in zoology, by Prof. Snow, and the class in solid txioni- etry, vy. i ror. jjurawcii. v lule we weio exceedingly well pleased with evidence of thorough work displayed by all tho classes, we cannot bolp making particular men tion of the fine collection of speci mens which woro exhibit-id by the classes in botany and gcolo"T. The botanical specimens collected, clus siued and preserved by the si us dents amounted to two.thousutid. Tbo zoological specimens, all ol which wore in excellent condition, and most of them ananged in cas es with exquisite taste, numbered over ono thousand. Both the botanioai and zoological specimens were accompanied by . very neatly written descriptive memoranda, which test fied to tho thoroughness with which tho studies in natural history wore conducted. : From 'what wo have sccu and heard of the annual examinations just closod, we can assuro our rend ers that tho University of Kansas, in respect to the thoroughness of tho work which sho is now pros pared to do; U not ono whit behind tho lirtt institutions in the land. And we venture to predict that the time is not far distant, when even tho shoddy aristocracy of our State, for we havo somo, even in pioneer Kansas, will be foreod to admit that thi? may sond their children to older institutions, and ftt groater cost, without iinding any Improve ment upon tho educational advantages which aro placed within t'hoi.' reach in tho Statu University, at home. Lawrence Hume Journal. Rome the Capital of Italy. Tbo long promised event tho trurtsfor of the Italian capital to Home has at last been atiuouncod to take place July 1. Tho representatives of foreign powers at Floronco have been notifiod ol tbo proposed change, and will probably accept tho invitation to follow Victor Emanuel to Home. 'I here is, however, still considerable doubt as to whether tho French Minister to the kingdom of Italy will ac company his diplomatic brethren to tho eternal city. It is well k nown that M. Theirs is personally in f.ivor of tho temporal power of th'o Pope ; thai ho resented the ungrate ful conduct of Italy ia abandoning Franco to ber fate by appointing a representative to the Holy See- Undor theso circumstances tho position of the French Minister now in Florence is a singularly embarrassing one, and would, bccouis still more so if ho were to remove to Homo, where ho would be liable to clash with his colleague, who is ecredited to the Popo. On the otter hand it is a fact of great significance that tho Aus trian government has authorized its Ambassador at Florence to fol low tho Italian court to the new capital. Whatover hopss tbo Pas pacy may have plaeod on the active support of Austria is now dispelled by this announcement. The zeal of the prelates of Vienna, who but lately addressed a peti tion to the Fmporor Francis Joseph asking the government to rostore the Holy Father to his sovereignty, must bo considerably dampened by this formal recognition of the Italian status quo. The hope of tho Holy See now rests with Franoo. We doubt, however, that France, in spite of M. Theirs' personal leaning toward the Papacy, will interfere by force of arms; and nothing short of armed interference will have any persuasive influence with tho government of Italy, Keep out of debt, out of quarrels, out 8f damp clothe-", out of reach of liquors, and out of doors al' you can in good weather. , A fixed star is as much in the bounds of nature as a flower of tho field, though less obvious and of far greater dignity. Ah, sho is only half mother who does not see her child in every child! her own crihl's prief in every pain wbiah makes another child weep ! . Educational, ' Tho Bubjo'Jt'of compulsory education is now rccaiving a good deal of attention throughout tho country Several of our teachers' institute in this Stato havo hud the matter undor discussion, and gent-rally have been disposed to favor tbo project. Michigan, which is apt to loud the way in refordl, has already adopted a law which enacts compulsory attendance at school. It provides that every parent, guardian, or other person in the Stato, having control and charge of children between tho ages of eight nnd fourteen years, shall be roquired to send them to a public school for a period of at least twelve weeks in each year, nt least six weeks of which shall bo consecutive Childron may be excused from such attendance by the board of the school district in which the parent or guardian resides, upon its being shown that tho child's mental or bodily condition is such an to prevent its attondanco nt school or application to study for tho period required, or that the child is taught in a private school, or at homo, in such branches as are usually taught in tho primary school, or lias already acquired tho ordinary branches of learning taught in tho public school.-. Home Journal, Lawrence. Kansas Emigration. I have rooontly taken a flyiiu trip as fur as Lawrence, Kansa '. It would seem us if all tho world and his wife and children were on tbo movo toward this, now the promised lurid. Covered emigrant wagons woro seen all along the route, upon which you will gener ally see pjiuted "Kansas." At Quincy I was told that fivo hun dred wagons crossed the river daily, bound for this young Stato. The cities, and tho towns, and the country ere nil filling up rapidly, aud improvement is the order of tho day evorywhere. New towns are constantly springing up as the railroads are opened, and tho whole face of the country h.-is undergone a most wonderful chango since I was there four years ago. The crops look magnificent, and the promise of an abundant harvest was never better in all parts of the State. The winter wheat looks especially no. Tbo complaint is everywhere, however, that money is scarce. I foil in with a largo party of emigrants from Ohio, who were oing to their destinatiun by rail. They woro gonerally thrifty farmers from tho Western lloservc, num bering in all, 1 should judge, over two hundred. And the State is larguly being settled up iu this wholesale way. Whole neighborhoods from the older States, go together, and soon all seems homelike again. Tho church and school houses, to which they have been accustomed, find at onco a place among them, and in this way. the ordinary privations of tho emigrant arc si.avcoly known. .
