This remarkable tree boars a curious fruit of the Sixo of a poach which although not very palatable is eagerly sought after by different animals it is separated into three lobes which contain each a Small Black nut. The Trees Are tapped in Tho same manner that new englander tap Maple Trees. Tho trunk having been perforated a Yellowish liquid resembling Cream flows out which is caught in Small Ely cups fastened to Tho Trio. When these by coins full their contents arc emptied into Largo Earthern jars in which the liquid is kept until desired for use. The operation of making the shoes is Sirn Plo is it is interesting imagine yourself. Dear Reader in one of Tho Seringa Groves of Brazil.

His Success in raising the Concord grape is the Best proof of this. Says miss i Ford Man is born to dial or.

I have by no Means said All that can be said for it my desire being to have it come fully up to the expectations of those who Inay cultivate it which i have no doubt it will. 1 believe i have before stated to you that my Vine is growing on a poor Sandy Laiu overlaying gravel which has nut been trenched and but slightly manured add to this the late Spring and Early autumn frosts a which we Are liable to in this deep Valley of Concord and Tho summer droughts which Are very severe with Rue and i think you will conclude with me that it will be Likely of keep up its character under almost any circumstances. And Here let to say lira i have Multi but Patron who left him in und Imin i died with and increased perplexity. This interview Hud taken place immediately after break fast and when the conference a ended the provoked father sought his daughters who happily unconscious of All that occurred were am using themselves in their splendid conservatory a a scene always As becoming us it is agree Able to youth and Beauty.

It is proposed to Muke the american Ca Mil several Hundred feet wide fourteen deep and of sufficient capacity to Tako vessels of 500 tons Burden. F or various reasons the of Vermont might Grant Aid to this work first it is All important us a a nouns of do Fence in times of our. In a War with great Hrit Uin the supremacy of tie lakes would he even inure fiercely Oon Custod than in the lust our but while our opponents would have the Welland canal it their service we should have no pass for vessels from one Luke to another. Secondly we possess in i Menso tracts of unsold lands to which the lakes mud River have been furnished by nature to an outlet would adv Unco in value by Tho construction of this work. We Hugo often granted funds to railway Compa Nice from this consideration. Third a i would Tond to Tho settlement of the country which has always been in object with Ull governments and to promote which they Havo always granted lands the Homestead Hill now by fore Congress is urged for no other purpose. So vast is our country and extensive its capacities hint to do not always perceive them and they Are to he influenced by u measure Biko this. U on Tho Chain of Waters that this canal would Rondo navigable to have seven of the Lur Gost most productive and to to Tho Moat populous states in visit a lio Union with 2000 nilus of Navi Guhlow coast. They have a Commerce employing i 80.000 tons of steam and 140,000 tons it Suil vessels Tomt in 1850 transported 2,000 000 barrels flour 8,000,000 Bushe s wheat 7,000.000 bushels 2.ink ,000 of outs and Barley equal to 27,000,000 bushels of Groin. Around these Waters to have no ready n population of five million people and Tho District thut lius its Trade concentrated on Lake Eric is equal to 330,000 Square Miles. Within the United states to Havo two main arteries by which this produce comes to a Market the Erio canal whose tonnage in one season has amounted to 4,-000,000, and Whan enlarged May to double that and the Erie Railroad that transported in 1852, 406,460 tons but the so and All other avenues which Are Row literally choked with business cannot relieve the pressure and we Havo before us this fact that Tho population and agricultural produce of Tho Luke Region is doubling in every twelve years. What therefore is to to Dono Twenty five years to Day unless such a canal he Cut our Domestic Trade is outrunning All calculations and beside it our foreign com Eros is sinking into insignificance. The Coal and minerals the mums and other products from Tho West and Tho manufactures to turned from Tho East Aro kicking All Busy a and the moans of transportation should be equal to the demand. This forma Tho basis too of our foreign Trado. Tho Atlantic slope is Barren compared with the Fields of Tho West and it would rely upon no valuable Commerce of its own. What it would do in Exchange the earnestness with which site had spoken she Bent her head Over the Marble Basin Whoso Waters reflected the Lair image a if she had really been the grecian statue to which whilst he listened her fathers loud fancy had com pored her. A let to live Siu Gic Wilh you and marry Charles to the woman whom to a have you Hoarel the name of the Ludy in question ? have you formed any gues who she May be a a a not the slightest.

And a very few Mouths noved that love bail contrived bet Lei for or. Molesworth than he had done for himself. Jesy with her prel Siuess Ami her Tille her Fop Peries was the very thing to to vain of the very thing log a the India rubber tree. From a volume lately published in f York by g. 1. La Utonn entitled scene now scenes and adventures on the bunks of Tho at Naxon we take the following account of that strange poles India rubber shoes also attracted our Attan Tion. These Are for the Moat part manufactured in the Iuie rior and Are brought Down the River for Salo by Tho natives. It has been estimated that at least two Hundred and fifty thousand pairs of shoes Aro annually exported from the province and Tho number is constantly on the increase. A a a few words hero respecting the tree itself and the of the shoes inv not be out of place. The tree sip Hilla of a Ustica is quite Peculiar in its and sometimes Roaches the height of eighty and Evon a Hundred feet. The trunk round rather smooth and protected by a hark of a Light color. The leaves grow in dusters of three together Are Tun and of an Ovate Lonn and Are from ten to fourteen inches in length. Reuben turned slowly away meditating upon what Hud occurred. A a 1 will but care for what he thinks a he at length said to himself a a 1 have four dollars now and when i have sold my cabbages i shall have another Dollar. I shall soon have enough mud i heart bounded Ujj Lully i step re covered it elasticity and his Pace quicken my a the pleasant thought removed the sting which the no Cut alien of meanness had inflicted on i Sens Alivo spirit. Enough did not mean the Saino with Reuben a with grown people. It Hud n limit. He Lia Slen de cheerfully Homo or to the place he culled Home. He had no father or Mother there but in their Stead kind and Loving Friend. Or. La utter had died two years before Leav ing a wife and four children without property to sustain them. Reuben a the eldest Aud a he was old enough to in the labors of Arm it was thought Best that he should leave his Mother. Or. Johns ii a neighbor took him into i Tumilty where he very soon became a great favorite. There a one thing about the boy How Over Flint Good mrs. Juh Sori regarded a great fault. It was what she called a a spirit of Shu said she Novor gave him an Orange Oran Apple that he did not carry it to i room instead of eating perhaps i sister at Home or dear Little brother Benny could Tell what became of them. Mrs. Johnson had noticed Loo in his drawer a Box which a quite heavy with Money. She did not believe to had bought so much is a Lish look since to had been in their family. If he should go in this Way lie will grow up to to a miser. Or Johnson smiled at id wife a earnestness Aud in marked that with Sueh nil example of generosity As Reuben Hail constantly be Fere him he would not by lieu the child was in much danger from the fault she feared. A a it must to remembered who said a that Reuben in i own Way to make in life. He must Early learn to save or he will always to poor their Are his Mother and Sisters too who need i in various ways Reuben added to his store. When Tho Snow came to Mado Nice Broad paths about he House which so attracted Tho notice of a Sci Gubov that she asked if he might he allowed to make paths for her. To Rose Early shut he might Nave Timo fur this extra work and was Well paid for i efforts. Thu Box grew Cavior from week to week. Reuben had almost enough one Day Thero was a Faircl of flour loft it mrs. Purler a. Shu thought there must be a mistake about it but the Man said he was directed it Tho store to Lake it to that House. Or. Purler went immediately to least about it and what was her Stirp Riso on finding that her son had been Tho purchaser. How could to pay for a whole barrel of flu i a the Muisey Quot said Tho merchant a the brought in a Box. It was in Small bits which look me sometime to count but there was the Mother called with a full heart at mrs. Johnson a and related what had occurred. Reuben wondered Why his Mother should cry so. He thought she would be Happy. Do was sure he wus. He had been thinking of that barrel of flour and now he Felt More like laughing than crying those tears Noble boy Are not tears of Sor Tow but of the deepest Joy. You Aro More than repaid for your sell Durial. You have ears covered in your determination you ave resisted every temptation to deviate from the course which you marked out As right. You have borne meekly the charge of meanness so galling to your generous spirit Aud now you receive your Luu Are Happy and so is your Mother and so ate your kind friends or. And mrs. John son. That night or. Johnson remarked to his a Ifo a they Sal lug Lher before the cheerful fire that to had some idea of keeping the Little miser and educating him. A a a boy who could form such a purpose and keep it will in nil proc ability make a use Ful after year proved Tho Correct Ness of this Cou Clu Ion. Reuben m now Man of intelligence nud wealth. He is Ono whom the world delights to Honor but among his pleasantest memories i doubt not is that of the barrel of flour to bought for ins beloved . A Peculis Anutt of cock try. It is said that Uli nost All fruits Grain and vegetable which grow in the Clear dry climate of new Mexico Are remarkable for their extraordinary sweetness. Tho common Cornstalk abounds in Saccharine matter to Sueh an extent a to furnish Tho native population Wilh molasses which although hardly As Good of the inferior molasses of Louisiana might doubtless be much improved by a More perfect Mode of manufacture than that adopted by the mexican this molasses is purchased their by those who do not Supply their own wants at a rate of 81,50 per gallon. Tho beet of new Mexico contains so unusual n Quantity of Saccharine matter that the manufacture of beet sugar is said to offer Strong inducements to gentlemen of Enterprise and capital to Ein Oark in the business. The Only sugar which i brought to Santa be now is trans pulled from the Valley of the Mia a Ippi across a desert of nearly 000 Milea in extent and the Cost of transportation increases its Price about ten cents a Pound so that the most inferior kinds Range from 19 to 25 cents in value. Labor in new Mexico is Worth from four to eight dollars per month. The manufacture of sugar irom beets has never been attempted there probably because no one in the county has the slightest knowledge of Tho journal. From the National Era. Hell Smith abroad.

In a female word of a Hospital about Daylight the hour at which Dubois with a class visit the place while they Weto passing a lowly from bed to bed upon one Side of thu Long Hall our Friend observed a girl sitting on the Little Couch carefully combing her hair and urn Nging her dress. He observed this because the girl a so ill he had not expected thu Day before again to see her alive and the prepay tin she made was evid Eully accompanied with great Elford for she paused frequently mud continued with and exhaustion. The teacher and Pupil passed on and in less than an hour returned upon the Side where b. Had observed the poor girl preparing to receive a greater visitor than they she had smoothed her hair and folded her dress fur death. This Winter us fur a Beau severe upon the poor.

Thu immense Fountain in the Centre with its four Collu us figure of Church dignitaries sheeted in ice Lias a grotesque and chilling appearance the huge Lions at the base seen growling in stiffened rage As they freeze to death. Thu uni ads and naked gods of fountains Ami squares look dismally out of Placo through Tho falling Snow the boys Are not accustomed to it they play in a subdued quiet Way is if this rough visage Winter were a serious affair and nut to be trifled with. The Voiture in a Long line seem Frozen to the ground the Drivers very fut men generally Are shivering upon their boxes or walk slowly about beating their beasts As if engaged in an insane attempt to be Lively while the Bony horses mumble and snore in Thor nos bags. The winds Roor a boat the great Lowers of St. Sulpice and Over the Many centaurs shaded Walls thu Bright Snow dances Down from height which Mako St. Sulpico seem a mole Hill. The Fountain of Stony divines and co chant Lions coated in ice is dazzling White. The Broud Square is Whito. The tops of ancient Voiture look like sheets. The old Church is tipped with White at a thousand Points. Omnibuses run noisily while the smoking horses slip and fall upon their noses then up and stagger on again. It is Winter Ivory where but not our nearly wholesome merry Winter greeted with wild shouts of boys Aud set to the music of Sleigh Bells but miserable Dull shivering Winter. Way up in a to Uvonah Story window an old Frenchman in red Nightcap has poked oot his head and said a a Sacre thu goes in Aud heists an umbrella for the Rool leaks in numerous places and suggests rheumatism. Thu withered old woman at thu Corner watching her Hall cart of oranges says Sacre a and she too sets up an ancient umbrella which rather makes things worse for Whilo it snows above it Rains beneath her deceptive Shado.

And he never sold an apples a dozen withered de Clyod things certainly not templing yet he never ceased in Hia Earnest efforts. At Daylight i awakened hearing that appeals Tho freezing Winter evening swept Down the streets in was the last cry to cease. My imagination pictured some sick father some widowed Mother or sister depending upon this feeble Effort for daily bread. I could not look at the Little sufferer any More in quiet and so sont Nannette with orders to Purchase the entire Stock of thu Little Street merchant.
