Many year ago it Ned to to Tho in torn to act voting Apple tree alongside Tho Wall or Fence not of ill against the Fence bordering Tho Highway luit quite often al Iii Tho Dit i a n line of Tho Tiehua. This practice has been utterly neglected and to believe Cood tuned by Mot per Toun who have planted tree. The ques Tion a often Ari cd in our mind who Thor that Ohl custom a out in by without Merit. Wore there no Good reason for placing fruit tree in those Stiving Tho subject 01110 , and looking at the farm whore Tho tree Wro thus scattered to conf a Given a several recon for believing that the old Way alter All. Had it claims As Well a the modern innovation. 11 to work of cultivating the Oil Lor any crop i in to about doubled on Laud that i covered with fruit tree at the Ordinary i stance by from to 40 feet apart. The in offer an obstruction to Ever operation in removing the Stone if there Are any in blowing carting on manure in harrowing furrowing Ami perhaps More than All in cultivating the Corn preparatory to Hocius. They Are al formidable obstacle to the do of mowing Machi Ilea when the land come to tie in Gran a will a olt auction in carting off the Hay. There Are to Many hindrance and consequently Are a much a tax to the Fanner a though the amount of hindrance a paid in Cah. Thaw Ica of Are not presented to i made any one from planting an Orchal in the compact form but merely to Thow that objection May be urged to this Modi of planting a Well a to any other. Some of the a objection a Vanceil against planting by uie Ide of act ice re 1. That the Trees prevent blowing near the Wall or Fence. 2. That Weed and by he grow Ami at length occupy the ground Between the tree and the Fence until the former cat Ter their mh1 Over the contiguous Field and the latter Send out their roots to a the soil of the Nutriment which the tree themselves require. 3. That cattle reach after the limbs either to browse them or feed us ii tin fruit and thus break the Trees and de Troy their symmetry and also destroy the fences. 4. If Apple tree Are set along Side o mowing lie ids we Mtika either Sutler tin lot of the fall feed or run the risk of having the tree browsed. 5. That w Here tree Are on the Road Side the fruit become a temptation to boys w to sometimes steal it Knock the fences Down and Stone or club the Trees greatly to their detriment. Now let us see if tonne objections have and tatter foundation than Tomc urged against compact Orchard culture. 1. In order to make Trees grow some idly in to prevent their being stunted covered with Moss and show premature old age they must stand in a Loose Ami Orous soil beside being manured and this must be their position with occasion al exceptions for a year or two at a Timet of leaving them in Gross for at Hast 20 years. A strip of Laud near the Fence May be slowed and thoroughly pulverized to set them in when planted and this my be spaced up once or twice a year with an much Economy per lips Asil could be slowed for even in close or Chard culture the use of the Spade is necessary after the Best blowing has been performed and spading the tree near fences May be done in Spring and fall at Odd hour when other Woik is not press ing. When this is faithfully done it takes away Tho Force of the second objection in Tegard to weeds and Bushes. H. The third objection in relation to the destruction of Trees and Fence by cattle is the most form Itable one. 1 it in order to prevent this mischief the limbs of the tree May be started High the Feu d s made Strong and such other precautionary measures adopted As might in from time to time devised. I. In regard to the fourth objection if planting fruit Trees by the Side of mow ing lots would keep cattle out of them it would prove of essential service to Many Farmers who greatly injure their mow i Iii lands by feeding them too Clonell in the fall. A. The tilth objection would have but Little Force in the country where fruit is plenty. Upon the whole we Are inclined to be Lieve that the old practice of setting fruit by the Side of fences and especially where they Umler the Highway was a economical and proper one. They certainly must find a considerable ortion of their support from the washings of the High ways and they afford Shade in summer break the rough winds of Winter and Render the Way attractive Ami pleasant to the traveller.

That a very poor Chance to my no Tion for one who would Winter calve to worm not take much pain for the Comfort of any of his it Winter let a Tell Tho tory Farmer ii. Wintered i four calve inn stable partitioned Oil in one Corner of Hii cow had or rather one of i cow had for he Hase eral on different tide of Hii Imru Yard. It a about 15 feet Square and had a Manger or Box for Hay knot one id eighteen inches wide and a Foo deep with stake about even two feet Long enough to keep the calve head separate. Tho floor was of Earth or rather of litter and manure for in the course of the w inter it accumulated a Foo or More in depth Over the surface. 1 was levelled and kept clean and dry l \ i daily supplies of refuse Straw a Small Quantity of this sufficed each Day except in thawing weather. I their food was Cut Straw and chaff and Good Clover Hay the latter night and morning the former at noon or a Rha h twice in the Middle of the Day and they were not allowed to waste much of either calves and other Stock will waste Inorg than they eat Inlet some judgment is used in supplying their food at proper Timet and in n pro Jar manner. We should put before them All they will cons ump and place it where they cannot get it under their feet removing the re fused portions from their mangers before giving a fresh Supply. Water was Furni hed onco a Day in very cold Days twice or warmer ones. Farmer a s water Jond is near but out title his Harn Yard and he says cattle will not drink More than once in the bleakest Days of Winter even if they must go but a few rods from the Yard. It would be bettor to have water in the Yard Ami at All times ready for the Stock but this convenience beyond the reach of to Nav Fanner. It is remarkable How Little thought is often Given to Nfn Ter for animals. These calve in the fall had Mii Ooth Glossy Coats and were full of life and animation but As Winter weather came on they be to show its effect in a rough new of coat and drooping of spirits. The change was very noticeable in the few weeks before their shelter was fitted up for them. They had As much and As Good food and ate More of it but the cold and wet made a very material differ ence in their Thrift and appearance. De end upon it attention to the Comfort of us i my first Losson. Ii mum Ann h. Tepi Kinh. Abby l in Renwu yen that was the name of my Tiv St schoolmistress. She w us one of the Stit Fost nicest anoint Down the Long Tow of roman capital Ami toll me to read. I re member it nil she had on a Brown Cali co dry her hair was parted plainly and done up in a French twist behind there we a Good Deal of Gray in that Black hair and around her Prim Mouth any Sipui Unity of Fine wrinkles but her voice was Low and Sweet she wan stiff but not Cros and the Little girls loved her in a degree though she did give them Long stretches of of Hemming and Over seems to new. My first school mistress came from Louic neighbouring town. She was Nei Titer Episcopalian nor presbyterian but wore the i Cost Little methodist Bonnet made of Silver Gray Satin without a in w or a bit of lace a Quaker Bonnet Cut Short. Then she had a Dainty silk shawl tinted like a Dove s Wing and always car 1 ried her handkerchief folded when she � went to prayer meeting. 1 the school House stood on the t Ank of a Small Stream which turned a saw Mill just above it was so overshadowed by 1 Young hemlocks that you could Only hear 1 the singing of the Waters As they stole by the window. Some forty feet of Meadow Lay Between the windows and the Bank 1 a Noble car that cat no Rushing from the Topmost laughs of the tree and rolled Down toward the Mill Stream. Dan Haines who was sitting on the second class Bench close by me whispered from behind his spelling Book. That Tho mistress would to after that Ere pair about noon Marv Dell a Little girl in my class looked suddenly up and nodded her head. To had found it All out that was Why the mistress crossed Tho Bank every noon. She w As fond of pears and wanted them All to herself greedy old thing we l Egan to feel very angry and ill used not one of us would Havo thought it. What right had she to the pears 1 they did not belong to her More than to us. In fact Mary Bell s father who owned the saw Mill and lived in the great House with pointed Gables just in sight was the Only person who had a claim on that tree or its fruit. When the recess came we were upon the watch. Just As usual Tho mistress took her dinner a Iskot and get incr Over the Fence went toward the Hemlock Bank. Once she stooped m if to tie her shoe. See Nee whispered i a who was on his Knees peeping through the rail Fence. She s making believe tie up her shoe of the old maid is cute i told von to. Let jump Over and see the mean old thing eat it Dan climbed the Fence As he spoke and we followed a Little fright ened but Resolute to find out the truth. I an went before treading very softly and looking everywhere in Tho grass. Once he stooped made a Dart at a tuft of Clover and up again. I caught a glimpse of something yellow in the hand he was pushing with considerable hurry and trouble into his of act that swelled out enormously after. But Dan looked straight Forward into the hemlocks and began to whistle which frightened us half out of our wits and we threatened to run Back again unless he stopped. Dan flared up at this and went Back in High Dudgen trying to cover his pocket with one hard. I think Mary Bell and i would have gone Back too but that moment we heard a voice from the Hemlock Bank. Come come whispered Mary Bell let s see if she has really got it we crept Forward very softly and looked Over into the Stream. It had a dry pebbly Shore broken w Ith n few Inross covered stones All in deep Shadow for the hemlocks overhung Tho spot like a tent. Upon one of these stones sat our school mistress with her hymn Book open singing ller voice was soft and Clear and joined in with the murmurs of the Stream solemn and Sweet the Oil maid Sung her Little hymn closed the Book and casting a Tiu Iid glance up and Down to be sure that she was in Solitude Knelt Down by the Mossy Stone w hich had been her scat and begun to Pray. The mistress was alone with her god she had Only very simple language in which to Tell him her wants but its earn estness brought the tears into our eyes. L Oor soul she had been grieving All Tho time that no Ono of the scholars Ever Knelt by her Side at prayer. She Besought god with such Meek Earnest Ness to touch our hearts and bring us humbly to his feet kneeling As she did for a Blessing or in thankfulness. She told the lord a if he had been her Only father How Good and blight and precious we were lacking nothing but his holy Grace. She so humbled herself and plead for us that Man Bell and i crept away from the Bank crying sol Tiv and ashamed to look each other in the face. Dan Lla incs was sitting in a Crook of the pc acc eating something very greedily but we avoided him and went into the school House quite heart broken at our own naughtiness. After a Little while the mistress came in looking Serene and thoughtful As if she had been comforted by some Good Friend. Mary Bell and 1 were still and serious All the afternoon. Once or twice i saw her Beautiful Blu eyes looking at me wistfully Over her spelling Book but we knew that it was wrong to whisper and for the world would not Havo Diao be cd the Mistr Caa then. At last Trio classes were All Hoard. The mistress looked we thought sadly around at the Little benches arse Laid her hand on the High backed chair and Sank slowly to her Knees. The children stood up m usual. I looked at Mary Bell she was trembling a Little Tho color Camo and went on her face. My heart beat Quick i Felt aglow on my Cheek something Sod and fervent stirring at my heart. To both Kmic hand in hand walked through Tho scholars up to that High backed chair and Knelt softly Down by the mistress. She gave a Little Start opened her Oyes and instantly Thev filled with tears her lips trembled and then came a burst of thanksgiving to god for having answered her prayer. Sho Laid her hand first upon one head and then upon Tho other. She called Down blessings upon us she poured Forth her whole soul eloquently As Sho had Dono under Tho he unlock boughs i have heard burning prayers since but never Ono that entered Tho Depths of my memory like that. Tho next Day Mary Bell and i followed Tho mistress Down to the Mill Stream for to Felt guilty till she knew All. But she persisted that god himself had led us to the Bank. No matter though Dan Haines appeared to have done it wicked instrument were often used to work out Gooc. God had answered her prayer and it was enough. Sho Only hoped we would not to ashamed of having Knelt by our lonely school mistress. Ashamed for the first time in our lives we threw our arms around Abby under soil s neck and kissed her. Poor soul she hardly knew How to take it those withered lips had been so Long unused to kisses that they began to tremble As ours touched them. We were very Young and could not comprehend Why she hid her face Between those stiff Luuis and wept so piteously. Fanny Fern on the american crisis.

Holm a of the Maine Farmer speaking of the disposition in hard times to begin to economise not in a Juring costly Vicea or in omitting useless expenses in Little things but in stopping the newspaper says 44 we Are aware that Many when a a much coma upon Uick iry 10 ecu Chi themselves by pinching off the Printer and Stop their paper at the first move of Economy and retrenchment.

The beat business men keep them selves posted up with the a knowledge of what is going on is a very important part of their capital. Deprive them of this and they soon fall astern and fail. If it becomes necessary to retrench they do it by lopping off some superfluity of dress some useless habit or convenient not absolutely essential but not by shutting up the avenues of information and knowledge Well knowing that know ledge is Power and that the current knowledge of the Day or information in regard to transpiring events is of great use in applying that Power to the Best sea is a Peculiar Charm about the sea it is always the same yet never monotonous.

Most of our readers know something of the history of John Mitchell the notorious Irish Patriot who two or three years ago established a paper in new York which Broko Down by reason of its disgusting Toad ism to slavery. Since then John has gone to Knoxville Tennessee and established a paper which advocates the re opening of the african Slavo Trade. Parson Brownlow of the Knoxville whig tells a Good Story of this renegade " a Ilo and his partner or. 8wan, have a Slavo m boy named Jordan in their office and the Story runs thus or.

She at on every Aid death stared a in the Froe of human skill could Ami it any longer. W e saw the moment approach when we must bid Farewell to Earth Jet without feeling that unutterable horror which must Hare been expert booed by the unhappy vie time at Law pore. We were resolved rather to die than to yield and were fully up Quad de that in Twenty four hours All would be Over. The engineers had said so and All knew the worst. We women strove to to courage each other and to perform the Light duties which had been assigned to us Sueh m conveying orders to the batteries and sup plying the men with provisions especially cups of Coffee which we prepared Day and night. I had gone out to try and make myself useful in company with Jessie Brown the wife of a Corporal in my Hoe band s regiment. Poor Jeesie had been in a state of ree Tolces excitement All through the siege and had alien away visibly within the last few Daye. A constant fever con armed her and her mind wandered occasionally especially that Day when the Reo collections of Home seemed powerfully pc sent to her. At last overcome with fatigue she by Down on the ground wrapped up in be plaid. 1 est beside her promising to awaken her when As she said her father should return from the blowing she fell at length into a profound slumber motionless and apparently breathless her Bead resting in my Lap. I Wye. If could no longer resist the inclination to sleep in spite of the continual Roar of the Cannon. Suddenly 1 was aroused by a wild unearthly scream Cloee to my ear my companion stood upright Eide me her arms raised and her head Bent for Ward in the attitude of listening. A look of intense Delight broke Over Ber countenance she grasped my hand Drew me to wards her and exclaimed Dinna be Bear it Amna be Bear it 7 a i m no dreaming its the slogan o the Highlander we re eared we re moved then flinging herself on her knee rho thanked god with passion Ace terror. I Felt utterly bewildered my English ears Beard Only the Roar of artillery and i thought my poor Jenesis Wai till Rar ing but she darted to the batteries Tad i heard her cry incessantly to the my your age courage i Lark to the Logan to the Macgregor the grandest of them a. Ilene e help at last to describe the Fleet of these words upon the Soldier would by impossible. For a moment they ceased firing and every soul listened in intoned anxiety. Gradually however there arose a murmur of bitter disappointment and the wailing of the women who had flocked to the spot burst out anew As the colonel Shook his Bead. Our Dull Lowland can Beard nothing Bat the rattle of the musketry. A few moments More of this death like suspense of this ago mixing Hope and Jessie who bad Sank on the ground sprang to her feet and cried in a Roice so dear and piercing that it was heard along the whole line will be no be Liere it noot to slogan has Oraeed indeed but the Campbells ars Ootkin d be hear d be Beart at that moment we seemed to Bear the Rioe of god in the distance when the i Broch of the highlanders brought us tidings of Del Terance fur now there we do longer and doubt of the bet. That thrill penetrating sea Aelease found which Roee abort All other sounds could Home neither from the and Ranee of the enemy nor from the work of the Sippen. No it was indeed the blast of the scottish bagpipes now shrill and harsh As threatening vengeance on the foe then in softer tones seeming to Promise eur door to their friends in need. Never surely was there such a tone As that Wiloh followed. Not a heart in the residency of Lucknow Bat bowed itself before god. All by one simultaneous impulse fell upon their Knees and nothing was heard but Bunting sobs and the murmured Rioe of prayer. Then All Rose and there rang oat from a Tom ail Lisa gnat ebon of Joy Whigob is sounded far and wide and Lent new rigor to that blessed Pibroch.
