We believe that among well-informed wheat growers, tho practice of preparing the seed by soaking in brine and liming pretty generally prevails. But as we find somo who do not believe in it, we commend them to the fallowing experi- ment Iltrmcr. "In a Northumberland report on agri- culture, il is stated that Mr Ciilley, who grew tniiuuilly fiom 400 to GOO acres of wheat, had but one instance of smut in forty yours, ntid tins was when tlie wheat wds not fcteepcd Another experiment tried on seed, in which were a few balls of being steeped in chamber lye and limed; one-third steeped m the same, and not limed; and the icmainder without steeping or lim- ing; nod the result was, that the seed pickled and limed, and that picklod and not limed were free from smut, but the other hul smutty ears in abundance Another experiment was tried, by taking a peck of very smutty wheat, of which ouo half was sown in its nutmal state, tho other half washed clean as possi- bles, in three waters, soaked two hours in brine stiong enough to bear an egg, and dashed with lime; tho result was, two- thirds ot the unwashed was smutty, but of the pickled and limed seed there was u full crop, without a single ear of smut. A Miml.u experiment, somewhat varied, is the following Of four sacks of smut- ty wheat, one sack was soaked iu strong brine only; one prepared with lime on- ly; ono was soaked in strong brine, and then lay iu lime all night; and the fourth was sown without any thing: the result was, where brme only was used, now then there was a smutty ear, but not many; where lime only was used thcro was about the same quantity of smut; whore lime und brine were used, not a single smutty ear could be found; and where nothing vas used, it was a mass of smut HINTS TO FARMERS. Great profits in agriculture can result only from great improvements of the soil. Gieat improvements in the soil can re- sult only from unremitting industry.

The most perfect in their kinds are tho most piofitable. 41 Liberality iu good barns and warm shelters, is the source of health, strength and comfort to animals, causes them to thrive on less food, and secures from chtm'agc all sorts of crops. Liberality also, in the provision of food for domostic animals, is the source of flesh, muscle and manure. Liberality to the earth, in seed, culture, and coittpost, is the source of its bounty. Thus it is in agriculture, as in every part'of creation; u wise and" Pateinal Providence has inseparably connected our duty with our happiness.

The wild procession moved on to the green, a place appropriated in every In- dian village, to councils and sports.

Talasco's giant frame shook like a trembling child while ho looked at her; for u brief moment the flood of natural affection rolled over fieice passions, and he uttered a piercing cry as if a life cord were severed, but after a moment of ag- ony, the sight of which made the old men's hearts shake, and young eyes to oveiflow with tears, he brandished his knife, andcommanded the youths to pre- pare the funeral pile. A murmur arose among the old men. "Nay, said one of them, the tender sapling should not be so has- tily condemned to fire Wait till the morning's child to be con- ducted to Genanhateona's call of the mother biid may bring the wan- derer back to the nest." Francoise tinned impetuously towards hev father, and clasping her hands, she exclaimed, "Oh! do not send me to my only mercy I ask of can hear any other pierce me with those knives on which the Wood of my husband is scarcely dry me with your will not shrink from any Chris- tian martyr cun endure as firmly as the pioudest captive of your tribe." exclaimed tho old man, exul- tmgly, "the pine blood of the Iroquois runs m her the shadow of this night shall cover her ash> es."

I'll tell tho tale as 'twas told to mft'" The Buckingham, outward bound East Tndiaman, was skimming before a freshening breeze which had just be- gun to ruffle the broad bpsom of the At- lantic; every stitch of canvass was set, and joy sat smjlhrg on the countenances of all at the prospect of soon escaping from tho region of calm and variable winds, wheij suddenly a seaman engaged about the rigging lost his hold and fell overboard. "Put the helm shou- ted the officer of the watch; "a man overboard Aft heie, cutters; clear away the boat1" In one moment all was bustle and excitement; small sails flapping in the wind, studdingsail booms cracking, tacks and halyaicls Jet go by the run The ship flew rapidly np in. the wind, the main-braces were let so, arid the main-yard swung back. The cutters were lowering the boat, when suddenly came theordeis, "keep all fast, 'tis too late! Port quartcimastcr, keep the ship on her course' After guard brace np the these promptly and actively obeyed, soon the vessel moved on in the even tenor of her course. All was silence and gloom, for poor Pat Roean was universal favorite. Meanwhile, however, the cause of all this commotion was quietly perched up- on the rudder, patiently waiting for some friendly hand to render him assistance. The officer of the deck had seen him go down under the ship's quarter, and looked in vain for his re-appcarancc, he having risen imdci the counter, and being a good swimmer, instantly and instinctively stri- king out for the rudder-chains. Pat loudly shouted foi bolp, but, amid the noise and confusion which prevailed, his ciics were unheard. Being a bold and active fellow, and not gifted with much patience, he ran do- a spring for one ofthe gun loom poils, which, in trop- ical latitudes, are often kept open to give air to the various stoics the loom Con- tains, and once more succeeded m get- ting on board. Tired with his exertions, he seated himself for a moment, and, looking around, what a tempting spectacle pic- sented itself On one side was a tin- box of the be.st biscuits, on the other an open case of bottled ale. Pat looked long and wistfully at them both, weigh- ing the enjoyment against the probable consequences.; at lust, "here goes." said he, dipping his liand into one, and taking a bottle fiom the other, and in two min- utes a quait of the best Hodgson had changed masters, lie soon began to feel its powerful effects, but befoic yiel- ding to them contrived to stagger to a dark corner, and to lie down between two packages.

The sun had nearly attained his meridian, and the smooth and unruffled sea reflected his beams with almost in- tolerable splendor, while the ship lying perfectly unmanageable, heaved and rolled heavily with the swell; it was a dead oalm. Pat looked out ofthe port, and a bright idea sti iking him, he pro- ceeded to act upon it. The fear ofthe "cat" overcame his dread ofthe sharks, and letting himself quietly overboard he dropped as far astern as he could with- out being observed by those on It was seVen bells in the fotenoon watch usual, the officers were busy "ta- king the -and laughing and joking with each other, when suddenly the cry "ship alloy! ship arising from the filled every one'with astonish- ment and surprise, to the tafTetel, Where; to their dismay, they perceived poor Pat Roenaii; slowly, and apparently with, .much fatigue, forcing his way through the waters.

Pat Eoenan nnd his ad- venture occurred to Capt.

Pat Roc-nan was summoned to tho quar- ter t'eck, and told what was expected fiom him, and that it was arranged the two men should swim directly out to sea, with attending boats to pick them up when exhausted. Though a good swi m- mer Pat well knew he was no match for ihe black, and he trembled at the consequences of a disooveiy of his de- ception; still he trusted that his native impudence would again save him. And so it did.
