Brown suspected that the a sections of mrs. Wade were bestowed on another and the Demon of jealousy took Possession of his mind. He yesterday afternoon gave mrs. W. An invitation to take u ride with him which she declined a towards evening he met her returning from a walk and joining her they together entered the premises through the Back Way. Brown called her into a front room saying he wished to speak to hear and then on her compliance discharged a pistol loaded with Duck shot the contents of which entered her right breast mrs. W. Staggered out of the room crying Quot i am shot Quot a Quot i am shot Quot a second had scarcely elapsed Ere the report of another pistol was heard which was discharge.

Mrs. Wade sustains an excellent character and we Are informed that the unpleasant slate of her Domestic relation she is an Able woman. Doctors w. S.

On his person was Fourqu a Challenge from an individual whose name pc a ppr ski r the present and which is said to Avci been accepted. A belief that the affections of mrs. W.

L5y Experiment 1 have arrived at some conclusions in regard to the Cul ure of Indian Corn which i think Are of importance to planters in the South Ern states. I communicate them for the use of the Public with great Hesi lation because they Are directly at variance with the inc Eivid opinions on the subject. The Early part of my life was spent in agricultural pursuits and hence if Theio were no other Riison 1 feel a deep interest in every thing relating to agriculture. I noticed very Early the great difficulty in successfully the Young Corn plants i hence comes this but from break ing the roots in taking the How is it then that intelligent planters affirm the doctrine that Oil chief object of ploughing Corn is to Cut its roots if breaking the roots Oyoung Corn in transplanting it is really fatal to it future growth must not break ing its roots with the plough when it is older and the season hotter be a serious injury to it any other conclusions be Ems to me to be at variance with the general eco ii Uny of nature. It seems to me that there can he in truth but two reasons for ploughing or hoeing corn�?1st, to destry grass and weeds and to keep the soil Loose that the roots May penetrate easily ill search of their proper fond but in accomplishing these two Pur. Poses great injury must be done to the torn by breaking its roots. Can we not accomplish both these ends and at the same Lime keep Clear of the attendant mischief 1 to link we can. Last Spring i planted a Small piece of poor ground first breaking it up Well. The rows wer made three feet apart and the stalks left about a foot apart in the Drill. The ground had been very foul year with crab Gra is whose seed in lured. I he Corn was not Well up thib Spring before that Rab i began to appear. When h torn had about four or five Iii ii. Lie Youing grass oni plemely covered lie ground and the Corn turning yellow i spread a Quantity us s Al it la manure around the torn and covered the whole to ree or four inches deep wit Kavi i Iii i. I Rcpt Tak ing care to do this when the ground was wet and the leaves a that they might not be blown away and to leave the tops of the Young Corn uncovered. In ten Days there was not a particle of living grass to be found and the Corn had put on that deep bluish Green which always be tokens a healthful condition of the Plant. T rom the Day the Corn was planted until after the odder was pulled and the tops Cut nothing More was done with it and the result is a product at the rate of fort two bushels to the acres about one third of the stalks having two ears on each of them. 1 noted in the course of the sum Mer the following facts. 1st. The Corn treated thus was always ahead of some planted along Side of it and treated in the usual Way. 2i. It ripened at cat ten sooner than Ether Corii planted it Thi same Irne.
