The following paper a communicated to the Patent office department at Washington by Henry Lillie esq., of Bangor. Or. L. A one of the Many horticulturists of Bangor who have made that City Famona for its Gardena and Fruita although i am in the mercantile Buai be a my favorite Pursuit for Many year ims been to ascertain what Choice Fruita will heat auit the climate of Maine and More particularly the locality of Bangor and iia Vicinity to introduce suah i Ruth a widely a possible on Peno Boot River and through the slate. The repute lion of Many Fruita will depend on their location. What May be at richly True of a fruit grown in Maine May be a strictly Fale of the Unte variety it grown in Pennsylvania or further South. In the one care it May be brat rate in the other inferior in flavor. Therefore in the selection of varieties the Pomology at should be influenced by the climate of his location. Our clip Nat differ from that of England yet it Topi Olachea nearer to it than Moat other states for the Fruita that Best thrive in hat country grow in great perfection in Maine. 1 know of no Way that lands in this Region can be used to so a let to a profit As by the cultivation of the finer varieties of fruit. No crop command so High prices. For to years pm to the Avarace Price in our Aai Ket a been Lor Apple is per Bushel or plutons the beat Vastelie. $4 it Bushel. For pears a still higher Price. In thin part of the stale tie demand is greater than the a undly at these Price. There is a Lively interest awakened Here on the subject and we have in this a flourishing horticultural society which an a tally holds a highly respectable show of fruit particularly of the Apple the Pear and the Plum. A baiting and by dding. There is annually. At the right season much grafting and building done. The grafting a not performed by splitting the Stock but by Quot Saddle grafting a which i very popular Here for the Trees grow perfectly sound at the Juno lion As the scions neatly All live and thrive when the grafting cloth u used Here give the method that is adopted which As far a 1 can learn a Unildo Raly practice on this River. First take six pounds of beeswax one Pound of Rosin and one pint of linseed Oil soother than linseed Oil should be use a and melt them Well together Over a alow fire. Then while warm with a paint Brush spread Tho Wax on one aide of closely Woven Cotton cloth which Cut when waxed into strips a Mav be wanted say half an Inch wide and nine to twelve inches Long according to the size of the Stock to be grafted. I have used this grafting cloth with almost sure Success fur Many Yeats. It a very pliable easily worked and contains nothing that in the least injures the scion or stuck. Posea As Well As feeding Stock. Apples grown in this Sute Are kept full a month longer than those raised in asst of the other sections of the country. _ i therefore believe that main will at no Distant Day become one of the largest exporting fruit states in the Union. Immense quantities Ere commonly exported to foreign countries in ships owned Here which affords us every facility of adding to the cargo a our Long keeping apples. In this respect is have Many advantages Over our Brethren of other states which have less sea Eoa at and with two exceptions less navigation. Maine is indented along the Emonet with More than the a Hundred harbours suitable for ships steamers and other teasers. Pruning to xxx. I think most people is my mystery there was a web of Romance weaving around the mysterious Apple girl which became More and More interesting and every Day my Resolution to unravel it became stronger. There was such modesty in the girls bearing at the stand she seethed so much afraid of scandal should any one Converse with her longer thin was necessary to make purchases that there was no was left for me to solve the mystery of her life but by visiting the cottage. Asiu i went without an invitation and boldly made known the curiosity which led me to Force myself upon their acquaintance. A the daughter laughed heartily and said gaily a a we have been As Jurch at fault to mud no no your Euno a Ity As Yod have to reconcile our circumstances with my a then we should be Mutual of it fid ants a prune Tel it much. The tap Root is Cut off i observed. Quot i have been very Frank with when the tree is planted and All Tho Branch you and i Hope von will re cipro Cale a j a a a a but our relations Are not similar a she replied archly. U we Are not responsible for your curiosity you Are for is fur at least six feet from the ground und in some cases so severely that a Man on horseback could rids round them without touching his hat to Tho Lew limbs that Are left. Thus Tho us Are treated with downright cruelty. The result is. Tho bodies of the Trees Are More or Leas affected with the however we Antny respect Tho customs of our grandfathers to Are not obliged to copy their errors. To preserve the Pear and other fruit Trees that have been deprived of their much needed dress and Orn Smy it we wind the bodies with warm ties of Hay or Shade them by Cotton cloth from the ground upward to the lower brunches. Where this is done in every in a How sol Quot i cried. Quot it was forced upon Quot indeed and was not mine forced upon Mej in such a manner too As left note no Chotro but to seek out the mystery a truce to this banding of word you will nol Lake advantage of rankings for any other purpose than to Reward it with full she looked at me a moment As if questioning my apparent honesty and then said pleasantly a a Well As you have been so Good a stance it has Al girded a sure Protection from Patron of my Apple stand and have taken Sun Scala. 1 have Long Heen convinced of the great Benefit of permitting nil fruit Trees to Branch near Tbs ground suffering them to form in the shans of a Pyramid. Mulch inv has been found very beneficial More especially to newly planted Trees. It is done by spreading Reluse Hay or Straw n few inches thick Over the roots of Tho Trees. By a Good grafting Wax Tony be made by mixing by weight one part tallow two Parta Heck a and Lour parts Rosin. The whole should be melted and thorough mixed turn it into water and when sub Cint la Onolee work it Well with Tho this Wax May be a Pread upon a cloth and make a Good Piaster in strips for binding grafts ethos who would be successful in grunting Cherry and Plum Trees should do so in the Prim it before the fro to leaves Tho soil. All the Stone fruits do Best to to crafted Early while App s and Peur Trees a fruit he grafted on the swelling of the buds or m tin Vicinity from Tho Middle of april to first of june. 17 every f Irmer should learn the Art of grafting. This can be done in n very Short time und he should teach Tho not to Overy son and daughter. Of soon in they Are old enough to use a pen knife with skill. Miscellaneous. The pretty Apple gig Al. A Cincinnati Stoke. Some years ago when i was a rate blog through the streets of Cincinnati for the purpose of picking up trifles to interest the Reader of the local columns of u City paper i often purchased apples cuts and candies of u Young girl who had a stand near Tho Junction of two business avenues. She was not handsome in the common acceptation of this much unused word but there was an Artles Ness and yet a winning Grace in her manners which convinced me that her station in life should be above the one occupied. She wore invariably a close fitting Calico dress. I fell that her parents must be very poor and As i saw her Day no syringe i after Day in the same attire i had my St a Are Nec Saiy and the work be very j Pinion Inal her wardrobe could not be very neatly a Well As quickly performed. These extensive Yel Sho always appeared Soru waxed Stipa May also be used in budding a a a loudly neat and tidy it Wujs a steal mys Tresa. Some us More Rosin than one to Tery to me How this striking neatness was six Pound of been a but Rosin is not so i secured and Why their never was any pliable a beeswax and the Only reason i a variety in her apparel. I saw that it was use any u for ils my heave Quality a cd very All tasteful and becoming but i knew that Stony Fiu is should is Gru lied very Early i ladies Are proverbial for a love of variety in in the Spring i have grafted plums anti chert ies with sue cos when the Snow was Over a foot deep where the Trees stood. It was in the month of March. The Paradise Stock a used for apples though some Engratt upon the do ctn i Stock. Fair dwarfing certain varieties of a girls a peculiarity. Her Tuil was Ever clean dress and i had an interest in knowing Why this simple girl was so marked an exception. I Hare always delighted to study character either in High or Low life and i took it upon me to investigate the pretty a Quot a a a pears the angers quince is pre erred for the purpose. Fur the Csuy the Macaleb sep k is employed. For plutons the Canada sum Al cd is mostly used but it operate the the Pear on the Thorn or Mountain aah j a the scion outgrown the a lock. The Chany tree should be grafted before i the Frost is out of the ground mania Rinc to scr. In this and the other not Inch. Some o f the Farmers Are in the habit of gathering fruit torn their Orchards for a succession of years without giving i the soil any Nutriment. In Maine if we a take heavy crops Horn the soil we must i enrich it in return or it will suon be exhausted. And the fruit will there is More danger of starving our fruit tree than of giving them too much food. 1 therefore see no Good reason Why we should manure our Lautus for crop of wheat. Oom. And potatoes and utter la neglect to enrich the soil for our crops of fruits. One of our Farmers was asked Why i apples were so much Superior to those of the same variety raised he his neighbor i a because a a he replied n i fat my Apple by enriching the soil around the Mot of my there was gift of sense in the reply these observation would not be Wallai for. In we All had soil like the Prairies of the West. We have in this stale ample incas to fertilize on soil. For growing fruit by swamp or Pond mock or any Quantity desired Lime ashes Bone Ami other fertilizer. Under draining land in beginning to at tra i attention and so far a it a practice it hmm m every instance been attended w perhaps it is mors Bene and tempting but i often Road purchases merely Lor the Sake of forming an acquaintance. At length known to her As a Liberal Patron she began to have less Reserve with me than when i first noticed her and finally i was emboldened to make some inquiries in reference to her family. It was sometime before she conversed freely but by dint of perseverance i Learned that she sate of new England where the land is lived with Ner Mother in a pleasant cottage a a a s. A l a.

Then a much pains to know the Romance of my history if you will Promise secrecy 1 will Lell Quot ill accept any condition that i can fulfil a i answered eagerly. Quot walk with Roe to the Garden said the girl. We had a pleasant seat under a rustic Arbor when the lady remarked Quot Soihet told you that we once lived in a Village near parts 1�?� a a she did a i answered Quot on my first a a we were not Rich but we had a pretty cottage and an a Como sufficient to support us. Father died when 1 was s Little girl. I had no Brothers but i had a Nlay Unaie who was dearer to me than a brother. As we grew older his parents who were Rich forbade him our House. We met in the Fields. We loved each other and would not be separated. His father Learned that we still met and lie was Verv angry. He told his son that if he visited me he a Tould not Alay at Home. Oar fathers had been titter enemies but we would not tin Tler Nirid Why that should make us enemies when we loved each other and Emile de Olard that he would net neglect me if i father did Hul i doors against him. One Day to said to me a i am Gning to run away but not from you from father and you a Hall come to me and then we shall never be parted in was hard for me to consent but Gentilo insisted and we took leave of each other and he did run away. It was a Long time before we heard from hint then we got a letter which told us he was in America. I had changed very much since Emile absence and Mother was afraid i would die. 1 coaxed her to take us to America Emile told us in the letter he lived in Cincinnati. When we arrived at Boston we inquired for Cincinnati and were directed to this place. Mother bought this cottage and hers we have lived expecting to meet Quot have you never heard from him a i inquired. Quot Only once a she answered. A a do you know where he is now a a no indeed if we did we would not stay Here Long a Quot have you never written to him a Quot we do not know his name.

She understood my look and tone of curiosity Aud answer to pleasantly Quot that will explain to you the Romance of my do and occupation. When Emile and i played together in France i often wore a dress Verv much like this one. If he should see me any where to this dress to Wald know me. I might see him and not know him but he would recognize me and i would not dress in any other style for fear we might mis each a a but Why sell apples in the Street a said i with a look of admiration for her Devotion which she could not Malako a there is certainly no necessity that you be so a Eye there is a she answered naively a a i must be where Emile could tee me if he were to visit the oily. I dare not be on the s Reet All the time unless i was occupied and i never knew there was any disgrace in Selling Quot certainly not a i exclaimed a a but All on a quiet Street in the suburbs of the cry i knew the spot its attractiveness Hail often it Lere Rietl me and i now became More curious than Ever to hear the history of the Apple girl in the Pink Calico Tress. T ventured to ask permission to Call on her Mother and make her acquaintance under the pretence of a love for Birds and Flowers with both of which the cottage was surrounded. I did not receive the encouragement i wished but still was left to Hope that my curiosity might be some Day As a a Lacier to my purpose increased i became More determined and i resolved to change my tactics i could not understand the urls a disinclination to allow our acquaintance to become in any respect familiar hot i knew that she would not f m foolish but something tells me to Hope dare to treat me rudely and watching my a old i do opt Unity one Sonde morning Laddie a Quot May Yon not be disappointed a i said de her a stood at Fie Street Gal of the blot involuntarily cottage Ami As i admired some i a Day after this interview missed the Apple girl in the Pink Drew bom her accustomed at a my.

Among the wondrous sights on Earth the Volcano of Etna will always hold a just preeminence. Renowned by Post and present history Sublime by its Elevation its form and the awful secrecy of unknown terrors that lie concealed within its bosom the sicilian Volcano will always be viewed with the deepest and most solemn Awe. In was with such feeling ants ugh thoughts As these i began to ascend the Rosemos on the morning of the 5th of May 1849. I had left Catania on the Day before in order to visit this wonderful a kit a. I did not wish to glance carelessly upon ill no Lor to me there was always something thing almost divine in connection Wilh this grand mass of up heaved lava which led me to look earnestly at ils rugged sides. I wished to ascend to View from its Summit the fairest regions on Earth to Glauco Down into those unfathomable Depths where fire fire in All its terror forever dwells forever Strug Gle. It was with slow Steps that i ascended the Cone after the patient Ami Hardy ponies had been dismissed. I had been an invalid and the fatigue of coming up the Steep and Rocky Declivity might Well Nave daunted me. Rut after Many resting and Hastings i was Able to attain the Summit. The Summit Good heavens can i Ever forget the delirium the transport of Joy Winch the boundless Prospect there awakened within me can i Ever forget the first glimpse which i caught of All the glories and the horrors of nature mingled together in such fearful Union 1 far away on Ono Side spread the Fertile Plains the Green Meadows and the gentle Valley of Sicily. There were streams Glano a ing and flashing in the Sun As Thev wandered to the sea with ten thousand labyrinth Ian turnings Inkes whose Glassy surface showed Nota ruffle nor a Ripple there were terraces upon the sides of a Hundred Hill where Tho trellises vines pass along All Green and Blooming there were Groves of Orange tees timid the dark Green foliage of which Tho Golden oranges peeped Folb like flashes of phosphorescent Light in a Midnight sea there were Long avenues of cypresses of acacias of Noble Trees of Many kinds mid which kingly assemblages at times could be seen the Noble Summit of some stately Palm As it towered on High above the others. And the a a the wide the boundless the deep Blue Mediterranean there it spread away on Tho other vide a far As the Eye could reach As tar of thought could run a glorious As Quot the dashing slim flashing a Burge or 8n but to turn aside and there beneath far beneath lies an abyss like that 0i which Milton has Sung in Sublime mortal strains. I paused upon the Brink and shuddering i gazed Down Down the thick and funeral volumes of tortuous by ascending smoke came Seething upward As from to cauldron ii leaped through a myriad of crevices in the Rocky and precipitous sides it poured Forth from behind projections and United Wilh the vast mass which came sublimely upward from the unfathomable Depths. Here upon Tho Sandy Rocky Edge where sulpher and crumbled lava and pumice Stone were All mingled together to form a horrid soil hero i a at and looked from Tho scene beyond from that glimpse of Earth which made it seem like heaven from that vision of All that was most Lovely and All Hal was most overpowering to turn Ami gaze into n volcanoes Depths what a Chance involved in a thousand thoughts Sal there thinking Myall alone when a sudden grating struck my ear. I was struck exceedingly and turned around. The place where i Hail been Silling was n Peninsula projection of the Olivit which formed part of this infernal chasm. Upon this narrow strip of land which joined it to the other Cliff upon the isthmus i saw a mild looking Middle aged gentleman approach me. He waa Rcv cd in Plain Black clothes and in his hand he held n Light stick. Quot i beg your Pardon Signor a said he in a polite manner and with great softness of Lone. A a i beg your Patron for intruding myself upon your company. But it a not Flea that i see any visitors so far Quot my dear sir i beg you will make no excuse a i replied. Quot i was just admiring this scene ii a yes Mia a glorious glorious say in Thor a terrible a a terrible perhaps to you but do not be Surpri de. If i say to me it is Lovely absolutely Lovely a As he spoke a smile of bewitching Beauty crossed his features. A a i Supit Ose your tastes Are different from Khoee of Many people Signor. I have nol such feelings. But May i ask you if Yon Are often Here a Quot a yes i Livo Here a he replied waving his stick around. A a i live thought that he meant to to understand that his Home was on Iho Mountain where very Many villus were situated. And i suppose a i continued a a that Yon Are very often on the Summit to a a of yes i Atn Here a always what a strange fascination it has for Yon a m i has it has a said the a ooh a fearful a a and his voice grew Low and hollow Quot a tenable fascination 1 was silent. Quot i will tall you a said to silting closely by my Side Ami turning his eyes full towards a a i did not wish to inform any Une. Promise me that Yon will i had not noticed i eyes Befu the Bol i saw now within their Dent lie there gleamed a strange and sinister ii Glit. I promised him. And at the same time uneasily Drew Back further from the Edge. A a Well then St nor a Quot cd he a a i am King Here 1 role mount Etna a a yes in i answered a Little alarmed at Bis words and attempted to smile. A a Yea. I am King Here. In me Yon see the being who canse the lava to pour Forth and overwhelm the regions below. I have lived Here for centuries. The spirits of the dts obey me see a he leaped up from the ground. There was a tearful fire in his eve Hie nostrils were dilated his Pale lace became a while As Marble As bloodless save on either Cheek there glowed a deep red spot. See a he shrieked wildly and loudly a a spirits of Tho deep arise has yonder a see them they Are coming in Clouds Enro bed in Thunder see a i leaped from the ground i gazed at him. He threw off his hat wildly and it fell far Down in the abyss. He Flung off Bis coat and threw it away. A a Signor a said i in Hopes that mild tones might make him Calm a a Signor the winds obey you. Let us go a Quot go where Boot this my Home is not this my Palace sew you not my Servante ? 1 of Are my guest of a a a will you not sit Down and Tell the about your Home a said i shuddering. Quot no there Are secrets that can never be spoken. Canyon understand in sol wha Are you a mortal that you dare to ask a i walked slowly towards the narrow passage of land the Bridge. But he saw me and stood upon it. I could not go. Quot can All this be pleasantry v thought i. An awful thought passed through to a which froze my heart s blood pleasantry Thero he stood my wild companion his eyes blazing fixed piercingly on me his hands clenched his Mouth foaming every sinew in his body worked he stood screaming laughing 0, cod 1 was Alono with a maniac Quot you go with a a where a Quot Thero i have Homo to carry Yon to my to pointed with no old snaky smile Down towards Tho unfathomable abyss whence ascended the terrible ool Umo of inky and suffocating smoke. I gazed at him for there was some Clement of fascination in Hie Glassy stare which forced me compelled me to gaze. There was a cold smile upon his lips which were nil bloodless and disclosed As they parted his Mouth and tightly shut Teeth. Quot there is my Homo Thero and i come to take you with me. Ila a How Happy you will be. Come a still i gazed while my heart throbbed with slow and terrible pulsations. Iio advanced Ono Stop towards to. I looked nil around. The spoil was broken which enchanted my gaze. I looked nil around at the Blue sky above at Tho scorching in Atli beneath. There was no Hope of could i but leap the space which separated me from Tho main Cliff could i hut do it but i could not to Bro was no Hope Quot what do you not answer who cried suddenly i shod into fury by my a tamped his foot in frenzy upon tie Quot do you not answer ? then i must carry you with me a the maniac sprang toward me with All my energies roused into frantic notion with every sinew braced and muscle contracted. 1 planted my foot backward against a Small angular Rock which projected above thu Loose Sandy soil and endeavoured to meet the Shock. With u wild scream which arose thrillingly into Tho air his eyes Ull bloodshot his Mouth foaming on it came. He struck is his arms surrounded me in a Fotter Fol embrace his hot breath tame burning upon Tny Cheek. 1 stood firm for despair and All the hit Corneas of death had Given no place to fear and timidity but had bestowed upon the the coolness of one in in Ordinary is ution. I threw my left Arm let Noath his my right passed Over his neck and around upon his Back thus seeking to press him to Tho Earth. It was a moment of horror such As no mortal Tongue can toll. A struggle with a mania to to on a Small surface of Rock Whilo three thousand feet beneath Lay the abyss of untold horrors at this hour my heart heats More forcibly Ovon As i think upon Tho time. Thus we stood breast to breast face to Faco the madman and in to with his arms encircling me i socking to save lie pressed to toward the Edge of Tho Cliff. To plunged his feet deep a Oto the ground he laughed mockingly and screamed As he tried to destroy me. But against the Rock my foot were firmly braced and i held him tightly and sought to hurl him from to As Well might Tho hungry Tiger to hurled from his Proy.
