The sentence however was commuted to service for life in his Britannic majesty s army in the East indies. They were accordingly shipped to England and thence with a regiment of newly levied recruits despatched to Calcutta. For 21 years or.

The citizens Here forc a few dollars upon him for poor and decried As he is he still possesses All the Pride of a kentuckian and sent him on his Way in the Stoge to Wellsville for which town he intends to embark on a steam boat for Augusta in Kentucky. Fancy cannot help asking what now is that Home to which the War broken wanderer is returning will the wife of his youth be ready in the Fidelity of her Early love to Hail the restoration of her Long lost husband or will her duty and affections have been Given to another or will she be reposing beneath the clods of the Valley and his children if living they must have Long since entered upon the Busy scenes of life. Will they take the weary Pilgrim to their Honnes and to their bosoms a thousand overpowering emotions must Rush upon the old Man s heart As his weary footsteps approach the spot that was once this Home fancy cannot fill the picture.

What will this Union be fifty years from this Day the Cloud by Day and pillar by night for the world 10 follow in their March of civilization and refinement. The morning of 1886 will Dawn up this nation double in extent with Quot Michigan Wisconsin and Iowa As the Centre of civilization and the in Begotten states of Macedon Oregon Columbia with another tier of sisterhood lying along the Rikky mountains known by the name of the Marble or Mountain states. What Are now known the Western will then receive the a Mil lation of the Eastern slates while the Western will be those bordering on the Pacific Ocean. Fifty millions of freemen will look upon the Light of that morn and glory in the name yielded by France on the great nation. Splendid cities will then exist where now the Indian lies upon his Copper face dreaming of the Happy Hunting grounds of his fathers with whom must soon dwell Tho whole Indian race. On that Day a Mere handful will be lingering on the Borders of the great deep that most at length in Gulph them. Where then will to the Capitol of Tho United states possibly in the Valley of Tho Mississippi St. Bous May be the favored spot or even Tho unbroken Widt Ness still farther . And where also will be the present citizens of our great Republic the present dwellers of the Earth will then have ceased their Bustle but Little Vitace will be held by them and a new rate of men our children and our childrens children will then Mange the machinery of the world. The above is not the huf Guage of Prophesy but that of rational a education rom a knowledge of the past and the boldest flights of imagination fifty years ago could scarcely have equal to lire realities of the present hour. Harrison and Clay. We ask Alten Ion to the article under Tho head of Larrison and Clay Quot in another column copied from the West Chester exam mar. We Are Well aware that there is too much truth in the remarks of the examiner that great exit Zicuis Are making to push general Harrison off the course and to bring Forward or. Clay As the anti Van Buron candidate for the next presidency and we entreat those who have rashly engaged in this scheme to pause and ref incl before it is too late. It has been the misfortune of the whig party to this country to be governed by a few leading politicians in and around the Eastern cities who mating been from the Yankee Farmer. On the mixing of vegetables.

But there Are but few who consider How far be tables will mix Aud while they Are very cautious in keeping come varieties at a distance others Are crowded together mixed and spoiled. Almost every Farmer knows from facts under his own that different kinds of Corn will mix when Plon cd near each other and yet Ninny have expressed their Surprise that any other vegetables would do the Sandrie. This is owing to the Corn being of different colours and showing distinctly the effects of the mixture while other vegetable kinds spoiled without the cause of the depreciation being known because the effects of the mixture Aro not apparent by looking at the seeds. Every one should consider How far vegetables will mix and when and How they mix this will enable cultivators to preserve valuable Kin is pure. It will also enable those who can give proper care and atle Tiou to exper intents to produce new and a wraps valuable varieties by a Cross or mixture of two different kinds. Plants have in Elmir Flowers different organs which perform an important service in relation to the seeds. One set of organs Are called Pilut other at Meiu.
