Rural life has always a charms a Romance which clings a rotund it especially to one whose childhood was free and Happy amid the society of Brooks and Vales and Foll Iago and pleasing Rural haunts. Continually will some germ of old remembrance uncover itself from tho dust and cobwebs of dim recollection tend come up fresh and possessing an interest with a kind of weirdness of pleasure causing pangs of severe regret that childhood had not always lasted. A Tittle Stream which formed the outlet of a Lake Embo world among the Hills As if to add Only tho Cham of a Ray of sunlight to tho Beauty of the landscape ran concealed along by the Alders and flags the Meadows and pastures till at last it crossed Trio Highway and plunged into a thick Forest and was lost in corp a Hention. #. One summer Day i tired of wondering where this Trout Stream ran to for like the a a Brook Quot of Tennyson there was a poetic Romance about it which was tempted by the wildness of the scene made a journey to its course and wandered along its fringed Banks. A slight Rushing sound As of Distant falling Waters or. The hastening of the wind through the foliage led me Down the gradually steeping Declivity and by the increasing rugged Banks now across the Stream upon a High suspended log or picking Roy footholds among the rocks which Rose above the rapids. _ Over the bed of the Stream As it deepened into the ,.hung their hand Elm forming a continuous Shade and Vista Down which my eyes peered with All the admiration of a Young poetic soul. Here and there a White Cascade broke the regularity of the descent and wound around the Baso of jutting Hill or Rock growing every step More wild varied and picturesque. As the descent grew steeper the rough a a iss of the Banks compelled me to leave the Shore and clamber around a distance of a few rods when i again came full upon the 8troam and tie yield the pouring Waters the sound of which had grown More and More distinct As i approached. Turn Long suddenly to the left Aro Iid a projecting ledge the Stream plunged Down a height of a Hundred feet or More into a Ravine Pititti More dwt and wild and forming a Beautiful Cascade which broke in Spray and sprinkled the mosses and wild Flowers upon its Banks with a delicious could a a a. Upon the Bra w of the opposite Rhode and the shelving Rooks the fir and Hemlock grew so Ciobot and dense As to completely shut out All View of the scene beyond. The Vine and Gooseberry intermingled with the dark Gray rocks while Over the fall the mingling branches of Trio Trees formed u Beautiful Gateway from which the White Cascade Dart a ii like a thing of life and fled away Down the deepening Vista. At the foot of the fall stood the ruin of an old Mill the stones growing Oyer with mos3 and weeds while a Little Green plot of grass and wild Flowers spread out before it. As i clambered upon the ruins lost in the Roar off the falling Waters and unconscious of outer things i discovered a pretty summer hot decorated with ribbons and wild Flowers lying by some overhanging branches and i suddenly recollected having caught an indistinct Strain of a song As it mingled and seemed lost in the sound of the Waters Eoas not to have before left a distinct impression upon my ear. I listened and gazed about carefully searching for some indication of the fair owner but to no my departure to a contemplated to a among the Northern Hills and lakes. The Long absence from these scenes had a new Charm to me,.or Olee the interruption of my peace of mind had suddenly made me More appreciative. I passed a week at amp Fine hotel which had grown lip of the shores of Willoughby Lake which was now a favorite resort. My unsettled fancy led me to Long wanderings among the Forest shores and by the new found pastures in search of a wild Flower or n stray Berry. One afternoon i came upon a party of ladies breathing garlands for a couple of Bright Little girls the very embodiment of loveliness and health and placing upon them their summer hats the party strolled Down to tho Lake to watch the White fringed Waves As they Laved the shining Sand. It. A i had not heeded the ladies. None could be Beautiful nor charming to to but a a a. But a sudden remark caught my ear How singular it is Annie that we never had a Trace of your lost . I hardly understood the a words at first nor did i catch the reply but 1 looked up Star tied with a Pang of despair As i had no doubt from the appear Hoe of the group that one lady was the Mother of the children and tho other an aunt or grand Mother. I however caught a Hasty. Glance of the features of the Mother and beheld All my fancy Ideal with but a bearing of still Gre Ater loveliness and Grace Thad my fevered imagination had Ever pictured. # a confound the Fortune Quot i ejaculated and turned away to the hotel to c insult the record. But nothing satisfactory was gained. Or. And mrs. Bigelow were there and numerous other bus but no 11 a. B.,&Quot although i was satisfied that a Annie Quot was the real a a a. Quot i cared not to learn further a of my Fate and came near quitting on tho Early stage for the Queens dominions whet the landlord accosted me and. Asked me in i would not join a party upon the Lake a another gentleman was wanted and the Ladier had proposed i consented was presented to the Good natured company but forgot the name in my thoughtlessness until every indication of attention on her part and frequent raillery of my melancholy proved to Iii satisfaction that she was not the Mother of Lovely children i had seen her in company with. The boating party returned and with it nay drooping spirits while acquaintance begun ripened into admiration. The rambles were frequent and the wreaths of wild Flowers often suggested a subject which i could not summon courage enough to Tough upon. One Day when her hat had received a few Flowers of my culling i while stooping to Pluck a Flower and with my face turned away mustered sufficient courage to say that i onco heard her remark that she had lost a hat decked with Flowers. Yes Quot she replied a Host Niy travelling hat once when i was a Little girl and i would give Ray heart to know who found it. �?nwt�y?&Quot-8ugg�sted"i rmu8�ng,-Ttnd-learnr_ de that there was some mystery which she purpose. Whether the wearer had noticed me and hastened away fearing to stay to claim it or whether some occident might not have befallen her were thoughts which engaged my curiosity until near the 6 sinking of the even a in a soft air concealed a a i found the hat a said i As we sat Down upon a Knoll shaded by an overhanging Maple a a and i will take the a a you or. Smith a said she in Surprise a you found my hat by that Beautiful water fal1�?� ,. A a i did miss Annie and lost my heart. There followed no Surprise nor exclamation at my last remark but her hand in con piously dropped upon Mino is we both at the 8amo moment asked How it came about. As i divined she had thoughtlessly strayed Nway from the spot where the hat was left until too near night and. Too far away to return for it. Tipon returning with a companion tiie next morning Trio hat was not to be found by it inst and the inscription As i had made it. She added the playful suggestion and returned harbouring the same curiosity As i had Dune. The hat had been carefully kept of a Hae Honor Relie stowed in my Garret hut it Hab Ridob been pulled out Anil Ein Hodies to two Happy hearts a Bright Page of childhood. Ive have both since visited the fall and the Mill ruins while somebody has added to tho former inscription a a found the hat and found the the Devil in me cellar. A Rich thanksgiving so Oil. Burned Blue and threw 6uch a feeble Light on tho sacred pages and tho Book trembled in the hands of tho Reader that Quot lie could not distinguish one word from another. The Little Hildron cried and Clung to their Mother the girls nestled close to their favorite swains and tho whole House was shaken with the agitation of its halt demented inhabit Rita. One Bright thought Howoy or occurred and a messenger was sent for tho minister to come and a a Lay tho the Parson a Man More celebrated for Good nature piety and credulity than for Talent and heroism slipped a Small Hisle into his pocket put on his hand arid surplice Liat he might appear As formidable to his great antagonist As possible and hastened to the Relief of his distressed Parish owners. In coming to the House the reverend Man was hailed is a deliverer and implored by at least a dozen voices at tho same moment to drive the Devil away but a few were lost in asking questions which not one could answer before the Parson pushed Forward is a Leader with the same penurious Light into the cellar the most courageous of the company keeping close behind him. He reached tho toot of the stairs. There the eyes of fire the Send cry outlines of the enormous Lions magnified tenfold at least by the terror of those that beheld them removed All doubt if any existed in his mind us to the infernal nature of the being with whom he had to contend. The divine instantly fell on his Knees and with uplifted hands began to Pray in his most fervent manner. Tho ram not understanding the pious Many a motives hut supposing by the motion of his hands that he was during him to a butting contest made n pass with All his might at ills supposed adversary but deceived by tho swelling de me Sious of his drapery missed the slender body of the priest and drawing hastily Back to renew tho assault hooked one of hib horns into the Belt of the surplice and pulled the priest with dior into the cel or. While thus in the Nower of his victorious foe he lost Hope As it regarded himself and the natural Benevolence of his disposition burst Forth in the exclamation. A Brethren take Odro of yourselves lie Devil has Gol me a this exhortation was better obeyed than any he had Ever delivered from the pulpit his friends All fled and left him to his Fate. Among the company was a shrewd Young Farmer who had from the first supposed the fiend to he some Domestic animal but being a Lover of fun and willing to see a comedy kept his thoughts to himself and pro tended to sympathize with others in their fears. He thought it time to interfere and snatching a pitch Pine knot from to blazing fire expressed Liis determination to Rescue the Quot preacher or perish in the attempt. A done to done to shouted several. A what does the Devil care for fire said i another. A Tako along the Hible if you will go i suggested another. But a needing the suggestion and tho manifestations of Cori Cern Tor his safety lie pushed into the cellar seized the animal by the horns calling to the astonished Parsen a follow me 1�?T the horned Devil was led in Triumph followed by tho ecclesiastic in the midst of the company. A momentary silence and hanging Down of Heads ensued Lut tho past was too ludicrous to admit of sober reflection and loud peals of laughter Hurst Forth from Evory Side during which the ram was turned out at the door the Par Sou absented himself without ceremony and the sports of the evening were resumed with better spirits than before. Made up for tho Isabella.

There is Ono joint upon which our Western friends Aro exercised some go to far As to say that no variety which requires for is healthy development to be grown under gloss the first year should be recommended for general culture. We cannot agree with this View. The object of Rico grower is to a Cucuro tho strongest possible Well ripened Cane at the close of the first seasons growth. Ii this can he done in tho open ground All the better. If by mulching the Young vines let him mulch or if by shading them let him Send a. So if by controlling the atmospheric changes by Means of Glass structures he can secure a healthy growth let him do it for to Only accomplishes by legitimate horticultural appliances what the out door grower trusts a favourable season to do for him. That a variety is a slow grower and delicate when Young is not in itself an argument Ngn inst it any More Tymn the fact that Young turkeys will die if allowed to run in the wet grass is a reh6on Why we should not raise them.

A. Manv a year later i strayed again to the Thlu tot and tho fall still hidden in the depth of a larger Forest. There Lay the old Millstone a tree of considerable size growing through it and the wild Flowers and tho Brambles were thicker and coarser. _ the ruins suddenly culled to mind the incidents of the former visit so Lowig before that the precise time was not recalled hut a forc left my Eyo fell upon the following inscription. A a june 15, 1845. Found a hat and lost my heart. S. just below Cut in a similar style by the Chisling of a Niece of Quartz was. A a lost my hat hut found no heart. A. I recalled to my mind my impression of tli3 time that the hat was out of style and trimming usually worn in the of entry and that it was no doubt that of a visitor to the locality who had unattended strayed to gratify a curiosity for romantic scenery similar to my own and that rambling away from the locality had mistaken tho place where the lint Wab left. It was in a moment my full determination to discover who was the fair a a a. B., and then for the first time in my life i seriously thought of the idea of choosing a companion to with me Admire tho Romance of nature. ,.a yes a snid i a a she should not Honvo come Here unless tempted by the same fancy and if the germ budding so Young Lias been cultivated she must to All i could imagine both in body and soul.�?�.

And i was no longer a resident of the country and she might be abroad. A the meditation was Well nigh distracting and the few moments of sleep that night were but inn tones of wild song and fairy nymphs just eluding my gaze and grasp by the learning Spray. To free myself of the eff cot the madness had produced i quickened in one of the smal Interior towns o new England where the superstitions of our ancestors still possess a hold on the people the facts occurred a few years since of which the following is a True narration _ an honest Farmer and his family preparing to celebrate thanksgiving at his wife a fathers in an adjacent town were hurried and confused extremely on the Day preceding that festival by the multiplicity of things which must be done before they could leave Home with safety. The House was to be Quot banked up and the Glt a Nigga of the Harvest cabbage turnips and go Forth put into the cellar that the external Entrance thereto might lie closed for the season. Having carried in the vegetables the pews were dispatched to thai barn for Straw to fill tie passage with while the Good Man himself was busied on the opposite Side of the House. An old ram the horned patriarch of a Largo Fiock of sheep kept on the farm having got a taste of the scattered cabbage leaves unobserved entered the a Ellar and silently continued his feast. The ave the through which he had entered was immediately closed up and All the necessary work and arrangements being completed the larger boys and girls set off on foot in High glee the dog running and Barking before after the parents and. Their Little ones having put out the fire and fastened the doors and windows to keep out thieves started on the same destination. _ on the afternoon of the Day following the festival the family returned Honit accompanied by some Young cousins. Some of their Youthful neighbors of both sexes were invited in and a merry thanksgiving arousal was in full Trifie of successful operation when one of the Hoys who had been to font into the cellar with a Little two Wink oat Idle which gave just enough Light to make darkness visible to draw cider ran Blok into the room with eyes glaring wildly uttering the half suffocating exclamation the Devil is in the cellar a a Pooh a said the father Yuu have Only been frightened by your own Shadow give me the Light.�?T. Saying this he seized the candles leaving the candlestick fast in the hands of the boy and boldly rushed to the Collar stairs but before lie descended half the Steps the Large a Ucer eyes and enormous horns of the ram caused him to repeat As much terrified As his boo exclaiming sure enough the Devil is in the Collar the Good Man seized the great Bible and attempted to rend but the Zandlo sputtered. From Theja Merican agriculturist. Notes on grapes and grape culture. A a in let More about grapes a says the Render who has no interest in the culture of the Vine. Yes for the Renson that it is now Ono of the lending horticultural topics. Tho Vino growers have their grape shows and grape conventions and we should not be much surprised if they started a grape journal hut whether they do or not we roust have our share of grape talk. Those who do not come in Contact with grape people Are Little aware of the great amount of capital already in vines and of the perhaps still i greater amount about being invested there especially in tho Western states. Individuals Are about to Plant their acres and Pompani Nies with abundant a Pitzl their scores of acres. Land in localities known to be favourable to the Vine Sells at great prices and men known to be Good Vineyard lists Aro engaged by companies at Liberal salaries. If we and d to All this activity in planting vines the Largo amount of map ital engaged in raising and Selling then it will to seen there is no Ono Plant which is of More pecuniary in Teres just now than the grape Vine nor one concerning which people Are so anxious for fasts Quot facts Are just what i have been looking for a suggests tho Reader i have read All the reports of the grape discussions All tho grape notes books Aud catalogues and tho Only a fact i arrive at is that it is All a previous we admit that there is some truth in this View hut we regard matters Mure hopefully. Chaos always precedes order and every science accumulates first a disjointed Maso of materials before apy general Laws Are found by which to arrange them. So in graph culture to Are accumulating varieties and bits of information by and by we shall have a sweeping away of the rubbish and a clearer Knowel Edge of general Laws. Then grape discussions Are useful and amusing withal. One grower comes several Hundred Miles to assert that there is no grape like the Tweedledum another Homes a far As the opposite declare the merits . While the growers around in the state where tho convention is held Are sure that the old things mob is tho Best sort. All of these talks have settled just one thing and As far As we can see Only one that there is no one grape yet known that is suited to every locality. A very Little bread for so much sack truly but still there is one the services of the Day were commenced by the Reading of the 65th psalm in connection with the st chapter of the 1st epistle to the thessalonians. Tho speaker then said. J we have assembled in compliance with the request of the chief magistrate of tho United Soutos that to should on this Day meet and give thanks to almighty god for the restoration of peace to our lately distracted and unhappy land a not that i recognize the right of nov civil magistrate to dictate to the Church of Christ in any a nyx but a request such As the Ono put Forth by president Johnson must find its Echo in the heart of every Mao and woman before to and flail Forth a mingled gratitude to god for the mercy vouchsafed is in being delivered from one of the most Oruel bloody and Deso lating wars the world Over saw. At the Sanio time i am sure that no Ono amongst us has waited until hour to pour Forth the gratitude and Praise which hostilities must have caused to Spring in the heart of Evory Christian find of what minister of the Prince of peace has not i urged upon his people the duty of devout thankfulness from tho moment that tho last gun was fired ? for it is a glorious truth that Christ his gospel and his ministers Are alike opposed to War which in All its consequences is Quot fraught with evil Aud evil Only. Or. Chambers then off Rod up a prayer in which to to linked god for the return of peace oud Freedom tint the writ of Hareas Corpus had been restored so that Trion wore no longer in Din go a of being dragged at the Midnight hour from their Homes and families.

We a re told upon the but authority that they no dying by the hundreds yes by tho thousands. The Public journals of the Day inform us that hospitals and alms Housos Are being prepared for them.

Meanwhile let us go on discussing the matter especially in state county and town Suoi ties and learn to give More Unlue to our own experience and that of our neighbors than we do to that of those who dwell in for Distant localities. The Post season has explained Quot tho caution that we must he slow in making up our final id moment upon varieties As it has shown us that some of Likely to recede from the High position accorded them while others have developed new claims to popularity. It must be recollected that grape culture with us is still in its infancy and notwithstanding the Rema Kahlo Progress it already presents it is Only the vigor and growth of , and not Trio settled Ohn Ractor of manhood. But few of our finer grapes have had a Lair trial. How Many have had ten years experience with them yet it was and religious Liberty than do the american people but it is a and truth that in Many eases it is bit the empty sound without solid foundation and tho Many Aro led Cap Tive by the fowl especially politically. The past four or fire years have Boon among the most oven till of tho worlds history. The great Experiment of self go Vermont has Bee stretched to its utmost tension. As a nation we Havo been upon the verge of ruin and confess that Evon now my mind is not satisfied that the ship of Stato is entirely off the Lee Shore or safely moored. There is a wildness in the political heavens which to the att Ontjo observer must appear portentous of evil in the future nod what makes it the move Nur filing a a that the immense mass of our people Are ignorant of their chartered rights. How Fow of teeming millions of this nation Evor carefully Road or studied til Constitution of the United states ? do you suppose that More than Ope in every thousand has Ever done so ? and yet this grand instrument is the Book of the people not by a any Means the exolus tvo property of the Jurist the lawyer or the politician but i repeat it the Book of the people made for.

But let us now proceed to inquiry int what is our present condition and what our future prospects and first of All,.l slip Riew Tny my a they stand related to the Hible Standard of Christian purity and exo Ellenwoo. Let us go to the Law and to the testimony. We Road Titus 3d chap., 1 3 verses a a put them in mind to be subject to principalities and pow ers to obey magistrates Quot to to ready to every Good work to open evil of no min to lie no brn lors but gentle showing All meekness unto All men for we ourselves also foolish disobedient decdveu., serving divers lusts mid pleasures living m envy and malice hateful and hating one i ask Viiu whether this nation As a whole nay even Tuat portion of it who pro another fearful sign of tho times is tho general demoralization which we find meeting us on every Side. It May indeed be Eaid that a a iniquity abounds a and yet what indifference there is to the increase of crime. A the press teems with murders frauds Deal cations robberies to Sabbath desecration drunk enness blasphemy and some Tell us that this is the necessary result of increase of population but that cannot be. We have lost Moro men by the War than we have loaf More Moo by the War than we have gained by emigration.
