Such a Meas ure As i am Goin to mention has been in contemplation Here with n few for a num Lxi a of months but their fears Are Raj idly subsiding and they Are now audibly what but a few weeks in Nee inc y to 10 almost Straid to think. From a Tara aces circus Taiin a daily develop o them air. Clay will in Tho nominee of Tho National convention in 183�z. Should this to the fact of which i have no doubt the present supporters of the and Niini Talion will almost to a Man go for Harrison. As Tho object of the whigs is to Defcoat Van Buren to the object of Vanburen friends is to defeat Clay and they will do it with Tho assistance of Pennsyl Vania who will never to brought to Vole for Clay under any circuit Tancos. This move Noat will when generally known make a tremendous excite Niento. Vote cannot but have observed surrounded you ure by the in it ers from All quarters that the South West Are All going for Clay. To is if the election was month mrs really certain of Louisiana Alabama Mississippi Missouri and Illinois and they Are becoming stronger in his favor every Day but of your old Friend Kichie says Nama ver rim. To shall controlled Power to prescribe what sort of Money shall be received in payment of dues to the Oor Ern ment to the extent of Rei Guirior if he choose the whole Revenue of Twenty or thirty millions of dollars a year to be paid in to Peeve. It then proposes to leave it entirely at the dire it Tion of the president to direct there and a am and in what amounts and proportions this specie or whatever other Money shall be kept. So that As under the reign above referred to the Money May be Lent by half millions at a time or by ten times that amount at a time to any Bank or individual whatsoever whom the executive May choose to Trust to prop Riate or to buy up As men have been heretofore propitiated or bought up by Means of the deposits. It propose of course also to empower the Sesi birr to punish a wit diam of the deposits any such depository As his pleasure May from Ike National Tuell Gencer. Tho latest project of the administration for regulating the fiscal affairs of the government yesterday passed the Senate by a majority of five votes. What thu precise nature and effect of that Bill Are Tho Reader will be Able to understand by an attentive perusal ofor. We Bstok s remarks upon its passage which will be found in the proceeding col us in. That Bill is in Brief an attempt to empower Tho president of the i United states of his own Mere will a pleasure to do that which the sub Treasury Bill Poschl Todo by legislation. In other words the amp Nate now asks of the Llo Usuff representative a to Grant Mai Mission to the president of the United Tatos Todo the very thing which Tho Senate has asked the House of Itse Flo do and which the House of representatives has twice sol a dimly duty Ramiu Enthat it will tvo no hand in doing. That ii the Short of it. The Bill Jiro poses in truth to a Stoke the ski us of Jackson ism in All its it proposes to invest Ihu i Uii in tar with an a. Chance to Light upon just As the late president of the United states visited Bis displeasure on the Bank of the United states by the removal from it of the Public deposits. Finally after clothing the Paesi birr with this More than regal Power the Bill proposes to place it All within the cover and Protection of the veto. For the Power which it is now proposed to Confer upon the president if the House concur with the Senate will be beyond the reach of remedy by legislation so Long As a single vote More than one third of the members in either House of Congress shall stand by the president in the exorcise of it. From the Xenia free press. Three things Fob some folks to think of. 1st. Henry Clat can not be president without the vote of the free states. 2d. He can not Hare the vote of the free states without leave of the abolitionists. 3d. He can not have the Vole of the abolitionists until he emancipated his slaves and turns a Short Corner in his congressional course respecting slavery in the District of Columbia. . Clay and his friends May turn which Way they will count the squares of their chess Board either Way perpendicularly horizontally a or slant Wise. It won t mend the matter and they might As Well understand it first As last. We copy the foregoing from the Friend of Man the Organ of the new York anti slavery society. It is but a few weeks since that we saw in the same paper an article touching or. Van Buren s conduct on the question of slavery which shows him to be in no better favor with the editor than or. Clay is. It is True no Consi amp int abolitionist can support either of the two. Or. Van Buren is the most obnoxious to censure from the abolitionists. Brought up As be was in a free state and always professing to be a Democrat he has no apology for pledging Nis influence to support slavery but the paltry consideration of receiving the votes of the South. Or. Clay s education and location May be an apology but they Are no justification. Or. Clay on or. Calhoun s Resolution did attempt to soften Down a Little the Southern nation of the right of petition and the Power of Congress Over slavery and the slave Trade. He yielded just enough to have the favor of the South without gaining a single Friend at the North. The Ditre Renco Between the North amp the South on these questions is so great that a Man May find Many positions Between them without being near enough to reach either. He who at Emps to grasp both will be Suro to obtain neither. Thus Between two stools or. Clay will be Apt to find himself seated on the ground. We travelled a few Days since with an Intelli pent gentleman from Mississippi a whig who gave it As his opinion that the Southern and Western slave states would not support or. Clay. His course on or. Calhoun s resolutions was condemned unanimously by those interested in slavery. If this gentleman s opinion is Correct and we Bulino it is where will or. Clay get his support Hay making. Philosophy teaches and Many years experience has confirmed us in the correctness of her teachings that not Only Clover but All Hay in which Clover or any of the succulent grasses Are constituents should be cured in Small grass Cooks not rolled Bojt formed of layers with the Fork. The objections to the old Mode of curing who in Tho Sun Are in the first place that the leaves and finer parts of grasses dry crumble and Are lost Ere the stems and succulent portions Are fit to carry to the barn. In the second place that an intense hot Sun is Hurt Ful to the Quality of the Bay that curved in the Shade Bein always the Roost fragrant and nutritious. Third it is liable to be seriously injured by the Dew sudden showers or continued Rains. And fourth demands More labor than the new Mode. We will briefly state our method of management which experience has induced us somewhat to a y our grass is heavy averaging perhaps 81 tons to the acre and abounds More or less in Clover. Where this preponderates or is in any too adorable proportion we endeavour to Cut when the Clover has just passed the Aill Bloom. The grass is of course succulent and Juicy and the swaths heavy. That which is Cut in the fore part of the Day. If the weather bids fair is turned Over in swaths but not spread or tended after three or four o clock in order that the wilted portion May be covered Isom Tbs Dew. If rain is apprehended it is put into Graza Cocks instead of being turned in the Swarth. The grass which is nut in in the afternoon it i is put Iam Cocks the following Amer noon having men lured in the Swath at Tea or eleven if time will permit or if the grass is heavy or wet. We never Spremo from the Swath unless rain us before it Isdock a a and in this Case it is ma4i� into Cocks As soon a the water is exhaled and the Graza wilted. We prefer to leave Tho souks undisturbed two nights and one Day and until a fair Day in which the curing process May be completed and the Hay housed. It May stand a week in Cocks without receiving any injury if they Are properly made. In the finishing process the Rooks Are out ened in the torning say at nine or ten Tho Hay Shakea up that the Mois Ture which is now principally upon the exterior of the grass May Pam freely off it is turned Over at eleven to two and at two to four it is completely cured and fit to be taken to the Bam. Cured in this Way scarcely s Leaf is wasted and the Hay has a freshness fragrance and Fine Colour much to be desired. There is at least ten per cent gained in Quantity and As much in Quality. The practice of tie Best English flemish and French Farmers says Deane is to expose their Hay As Little As Possie to the Sun. It is carried in dry but it preserves its Green Colour and you Sec Hay two or three years old in their Market of so Bright a Ereen Colour that we should scarcely conceive it to be cured yet they Are in the practice of preserving it for Yanai and value it More for its age. The Caa excludes it from the Sun and preserves its greenness and if a slight fermentation takes place there the Hay Seldom beats and never spoils in the mow or stack. It is the Best Mode to make Good Bay. From the Farmer and Gardener. Ghazi gof sheep in Cornfields. Baltimore june 21,1838. Or. Robert so a few Days since while Riding i the country with a Friend about twelve Miles of this City who observed a flock of sheep deliberately feeding in a Bonifield. Supposing they were trespassers we lost no time in informing the proprietor of the circumstance when to our Surprise he laughed and said they would do no harm that they were put in the Field for the purpose of destroying the Blue grass &0., and farther that sheep would never touch growing Corn nothing but the sight of the Experiment with my own eyes would have made me believe this statement but having seen it and observed also the manner in which our information that the sheep were in his Cornfield was received by him 1 was obliged to yield my belief. You will readily see the importance in various bearings of this information to our Farmers without a special detail or reference. Yours amp to. Gideon b. Smith. A fragment. Quot there is no place like this poetic phrase is no less Beautiful than True. We find that the food attachment of Home pervades All ranks and classes of society. The wandering scythian although they had no abiding habitation yet they maintained that regard and veneration for the place where the Bones of their forefathers slumbered that the nighty army of Cyrus could not Appal. Even the crude and untutored Savage of America whose dauntless spirit never Uail Belpre a fee has nevertheless a heart which beats with the warmest love towards his friends and the most tender regard to the spot where stands his wigwam. But in civilized society what is it that binds every sympathising feeling of the heart around the cottage where our fathers dwell it is because there is rare intrinsic Worth attached to it or is it those heaven born associations which connect Esch Brook and Rill each Hill and Dale with some Joyful recollection of Happy hours spent in the company of a Youthful Friend who now perhaps sleeps beneath the cold Sod of the Valley yes this tends store firmly to i Init the ties of affection to paint to the imagination seenes which occurred of Home and to Call up from the wreck of the past hours sacred to memory. Yet those associations joyous As the Are would sink into comparative nothingness if from that Circle where we spent our Youthful Days in the Gay Sunshine of pleasure was removed a Mother. The Hean Sweet As it is would be like a Temple Stripl of it Garland were it not for the sacred name of Mother to consecrate its portals. Like the evening Dew which scatters its fragrance while All else is wrap in the slumber of night so the Mother while every other ear is deaf is attentive to our Griefs mingles her tears in the cup of our misfortune and soothes our dying agony. What a solemn place for contemplation is the grave of our Mother every fault is buried in the stillness which a tombs her. Then it is that the soothing words that fell from her lips the Sweet smiles which emanated from her countenance and the warm sentiments which breathed from her soul come floating along like heavenly visions. Alas never did i fully comprehend the charms that Are conveyed in that word Mother until the grave had hid her from my View. But though the grass Waves Over her grave and the soft gentle breezes of summer pass unheeded by. Yet never until my spirit shall have flown to the other worlds never until the grave shall enclose my Bumble Remaina will i forget that word Moth by. Ameriam Magazine useful knowledge.

Agin Ember elect of the lower chamber of the legislature of this state was last year persuaded by some wags of this neighbourhood that if he did not reach Tho state House at ten o clock on the Day of Assembly he could not be sworn and would lose his seat.
