AH interesting Incident. Mr. Joseph Lenvitl, one of nor cilizens returned from California, in speaking of sights and scenes in California, made men- tion ol tho following highly interesting in- cident, whic-li speaks eloquently of the true humanity of hearts even in California, whore selfishness nnd passion are supposed to reign with unwonted force: During the raging of the cholera in Cal- ifornia, a young man from tho state of Mis- sissippi, Jesse Cook, about 23 years of ngf, who was engnged in the laborious work of mining, chanced to meot with a id generation.

The sweet, loving eyes of the infant looked up con- fidingly into the face of young Cook, and a smile wreathed its beautiful face, nnd ils delicate little hands stretched forth fondlingly. No female was there to caress and care for it, and the young mi- nor, with a trust in God and his own re- sources, took the nameless infant, then only seven months old, in charge, and provided for it with nil n father's care and n mother's love.

From the Galena Gazette. Fruit Culture. We are continually reminded by the New York, Philadelphia, and o'.her East- ern papers at this time, of ihe luscious bounly of the Peach crop in ihe neighbor- hoods of these several cities. Week be- fore last, the peach season in New York had reached, its climnx, and according to the Journal of Commerce, they were pour- ing into the city a. golden flood. They sold, this year, for about un average of cents for a basket holding one third of a bushfil. There is no doubt thnt the superi- or health fulness of these citios, over for mer years, noiwithslanding an increased and crowded populalion, is owing lo the cheap rate at which good, ripe fruit can be obtained. All readers have heard of tho circumstance related of Dr. Felix Houston. He purchased n large planta- tion near New Orleans and went into the raising of peaches. The slaves on his plantation, had, before he purchased it, died of cholera, and other fatal diseases, by hundreds. Their former mastnr kept them on the usual salt fare, forbidding them to eat any fruit. Houston changed nil that. He made them eat peaches and other choice fruit, and the ripest and best, nt thnt, an3 the consequence is, thnt he htis scarcely lost a negro for a wholo sum- mer. Dr. Stone, a somewhat eccentric physician of the same city, expressed him- self to the effect, that the adoption of peach- es, and other ripe fruit, ns a prominent ar- ticle of diet, would almost completely ban- ish the Cholera, Yellow fever, and bilious diseases, from Southern cities. Fruit, then, is henlthlul, nnd it is hardly neces- sary to say, universally considered deli- cious. The fruit raised here, like that in all new countries, is very limited in quantity the supply we receive from other places down the river, is by no menns the besi. We cnll the attention of farmers nnd gardeners in this neighborhood, to the raising of fruit, to the cullivntion of apples, pears, poaches, d-c. Thnt it will be a paying investment, iho experience of the wholo country will justify us in asserting. ft hns been found, that ihe demand increas- es with ihe supply, in New York nnJ the New Englnnd States, nnd this summer, the quality being the same, peaches, on an nvernge, brought a higher in Now York City, thnn ten years since. 11 such then, is the cage in n climate where bilious diseases nre comparatively rare, what will bo the demand where they art; prevalent, and where fruit ia the safe and pleasant cure1? The soil and climate, here, we under- stand, favors the apple nnd the poar, bui is not so advantageous tf> the Howtiver, wo believe by judicious selection of varieties, and careful cultivation, ru- good peaches may be rniseil on Sand Prairie, ns in the State of New We hope farmers will not neglect this branch of agriculture: now ia the time to cast about them for Suitable location, to obtain or select seeds, nnd to enquire into the different modes of cultivation, nnd the proper sorls and varieties suitable to the soil and climate. They nre sure of a re murierating return for their outlay. A bearing orchard is n perpetual fountain of health, nnd recreation, of pleasure and pro- mine, where a luscious Jead is sure to be struck every year. From the Patent Office Report for 1843-50. A few Facts ufoout Soils. Soils contain, ns a general thing, not more than one part in a thousand of the atoms, in an available condition which nature consumes in forming u crop of any kind. This statement expresses a fact of great practical importance for the husbanding of these fertilizing atoms is the first step toward arresting the im- provement of the earth. It is the mailer in ihe soil which makes crops in one ar- rangement of its atoms, and forms ma- nure in another condition of the same atoms, that the farmer should learn to preserve from waste and toss. Soils of differen) degrees of productive- ness, where Iheir mechanical texture and physical properties are alike, always con- lain unlike quantities of the food of crops. It seems to make littls difference how small is the amount of the lacking ingre- dient in the composition of cultivated plants. Its absence is fatal to the farther growth of the crop after its appropriate aliment fails in the soil. It is easy to discover the wisdom of this universal law. Suppose nature should organize grass, grain, and other plants which serve as th' daily food of all tho higher orders of animals, as well without hone-narth of lime) as with that mineral it be passible for such grasn and grain to yield to the blood of domestic an i mnls, and of rimn himself, that solid earthy matter which imparts strength to human bones, and to those of oxen, horses, sheep, and swine f Certainly not. Al- though iron la always present in the food nnd blood of animals, no farmer ever killed a calf, a pig, or an ox, which had iron far the frame of its system. No nn- atomist ever enw h bone in the body of a person formed of other earthy thaM such Providence ft ad f Kerf for peouliai function in The brains and muscles of nil animals contain both sulphur and phosphorus, as constituent11 elements. If iheir daily food, derived ns il is from the soil, lacked either sulphur or phosphorus, must not this radi- cal defect in their nourishment soon induce weakness nnd disease, and finally result in premature death? To prevent conse- quences so disastrous and so obvious, tititure refuses to organize plants with- out the presence in the soil, in an available form, of those peculiar atoms adapted alike to ihe wants of vegetable and animal vitality. This wise provison should be carefully studied by every who desires to enjoy sound health and a long nnd )iappy life. Most of the ills thnl flesh is heir as well ns most mal- ndies of their orign in the vio- lation of nature's iaws. The growth and constitutional vigor of all living beings, not less thnn the revolu- tion of the earth on its axis, ;iro governed by immutable laws. One of these ap- pears to bo that'nn atom of carbon char- coal) shall not perform lha function of an atom of iron nor can nn atom of iron perform the office of an atom of carbon, or that of any other element concerned in organism of plant? and animals. There are only some fifteen kinds of el- ementary bodies used by nature in form- ing every vegetable and animal substance produced on the farm, in the orchard, or in the garden. The science of'rural economy consists in the systematic study of atoms, and the laws by which they nre governed, whether lhay exist in solid or crumbling rocks, in loose earths, in vegetable or animal mould, in fermenting manure, in iho living tis- sues and cells of. organized linings, or in the form of invisible) guses diffused through the atmosphere. Every product of agri- cultural labor is either a vegetable or on animal substance and in its production, not an atom of new rnntler .is called into existence; nor is it possible to annihilate an atom when it decays. In ths language of science, nil matter which ia neither vegetable nor animal, in- cluding air and water, is mineral. All minerals aro either solids, like sand, clay, and lime or like water, or gases liko common air. The fnrmor deals largely with atoms in each of these forms; and hence he should be fatnilirr with the several sciences which treat of the natur- al phenomena Witnessed in the mineral, vegetable, i.rirt animal kingdoms. lie should know that plants alone subsist on mineral or disorganized if ihere were no plants in the ocean nor on the land, neither marine nor land animals could have a being. In the absence of all vegetation, it is obvious thnt nil ani- mals must be carnivorous, or cense to con- sume organized al'mont. Being wholly dopendenl on mutual destruclion for the means of subsistence, every day would diminish the nggiegalo supply of food, and the last animal would soon die of starvation. From tho above reasoning, it is plnin that vegetable lilo is older on this planet than animal life and that plants mny i have flourished thousands of years before iho lowest lype ofheing which depended wholly on organized food for subsistence, was created. It will also be seen that the line of demurkation between nnimals and plants is well defined, by the fact that tho latter can organize the elements of all vegetable and nnimal substances into com- pound bodies, which the former cnnnot do. All plants produce nnd increase orgntiimed matter all animals consuino nnd dimin- ish the quantity of organized food. Ill is gratifying to see the reaped which is uniformly paid to the nominee.'- of the Democratic State Convention; the Whigs aro giving them tha most flattering nolicei throughout the Stain. The follow- ing from the Wisconsin Statesman is nil that could be asked, and more than is gen- erally expected or found in an opposition paper: 'Of the above nominees, aside from (heir politics, wecnnsponk in iho higheM terms We know nil of them by reputation, nnd with most of thorn wo are personally ac- quainted, nnd we aro well aware that to defeat them we must use our greatest ex- ertions, and make our best This we shall do, and should We fail, wo can only hopo thnt the elect will strictly abide by tho oath to 'support tho Constitu- tion, and discharge fhoir several duties to the beat of iheir nbililies.'

Hut where did that man got tho whiskey! Wo would very much like to know. We find the following in the She- boygan Lake Journal: a tornado passed through Sauk County on Ihe 8th. Iu track wns about eighty rods wide. In course it twisted off and toro tip trees, car- ried away grain shocks and fences, unroof- ed houses, It fortunately passed through but one settlement in its course, so far as ws know, and no one Was per- sonally injured." And "so far as know" no tornado has evei4 passed through Sauk County. Where did lie get it f Not long since a man came into our of- fice to transact some business, amounting to one dollar and a half, and wo freely say that we would not, for that amount of mo- ney, endure such close proximity, for ten minutes, to another person in a similar sit- uation. He had evidently been drinking something warmer thnn hac nn idea that it was something that had boei but half brewed, nnd ihe process of fermen- tation was still going on in his stomach and oh, horrors we bad to bear the fumes If such a load of corruption ns lay on thn man's stomach wns on ours, we shoulf cause an immediate ejectment thereof i" there wns lobelia enough in Sauk count} to effect it.

An enquiry arose to our minds, vii. whore did ho get tho liquor? Thcro is i, law against vending it, and we believe ou. citizens (jenornlly nre n law abiding peo pie. But the law had evidently been vio lated here, and we ask again, where did hn get itf The man who sold that whiskey com milted a number of offences against tho Slate and community. 1st, Ho broke tin- law.
