In fact on my journey Home i had entertained serious thoughts of exchanging my old Silver watch for a More modern time piece of Gold arid had mentally appropriated tho ten dollars to further that savings Bank reflections later. Anecdote of Washington. Many years ago in a de Solaf Little Calin in tho suburbs of Philadelphia Sata lonely widow surrounded by her fatherless her husband Lind fallen in the Battle of his country but since then she had earned a scanty subs Stanco by her own hands without being burdensome to any Ono and her Little ones though but poorly fed and clothed Lead Nevor Felt that bitterest ingredient of poverty a alms seeking from the Public. _ n but recently sickness had Laid its heavy band upon her and Stern want and starvation almost had followed closely in its footsteps. Yet did not her Faith fail. She repeated the words that often before had cheered her sad heart a a leave thy fatherless children and i will preserve them a i have been Young and am now old yet never saw i the righteousness forsaken nor his seed begging bread a and her heart Rose in Humble yet firm Reliance upon their divine author. As her eaten nothing Rill Day Aud As she was still too feeble to Rise from her bed she now Quot Felt compelled though reluctantly to Send Forth the eldest of her children on his first Mission of begging to seek from some charitable stranger a or buy bread hoping she should to again Able to earn some by her own efforts. Quot the child a Noble Little fellow of ten years shrank from such an errand but seeing his Rico there a look of Linguish to hushed regrets Rind rushed Forth into the streets Little thinking in his grief what Courso to took hut a higher Power though unseen guided his Steps. ,.a a a. As tho child walked mournfully on looking wistfully into the faces of the people he met he was too much disheartened by their cold indifferent looks to adventure to address them., the longer he put it off the Mora re Ductant lie was to ask the alms he feared might be refused and weeping bitterly he hurried on unknown arid unheeded by the Busy throng. A. Suddenly a kind voice spoke to him and looking up to saw a mild benevolent looking gentleman dressed in. Black and wearing a three cornered hat. Taking the child a hand into his and leading him gently Onward tho stranger gentleman soon Drew from the Little boy this whole history the fathers name and death the mothers struggle to gain support her recent sickness and the subsequent sufferings arid then he hade the child Lead him to his Homo though stopping at a provision store on the Way to order a Supply for the poor family. Entering tho Louse the Quick Eye of the stranger soon discerned the cause of the Rico there a feebleness and introducing himself As a physician quite suited to Lior ease though riot a regular practitioner he offered to write a prescription which i lie said be was sure would prove beneficial. Leaving the paper on the table after saying a few kind cheering words to the Mother he left the House promising to repeat his visit in a few Days and then to renew the Prescript Ion if necessary., Gono. The Willow , paper Rind found it an order for a Hundred dollars to be paid on demand and was signed George Washington. This is a True incident. Such was the father country a god soaring plan hot less pitiful to tho sorrows of a weeping child and anxieties of a widowed Mother than great in the armies of and councils of tho nation. Thus were a widows prayers answered and the seed of the faithful Christian not suffered to a beg bread.�?�. An old maids Soliloquy.

Quot a wag on hearing that a Man had Given up Chimney sweeping expressed sur a Crisp As lie thought Tojo business sorted him. Rotation. is rotation necessary a this is a Fri Quot inquiry with practical men. Supposing a crop carries off a certain specified amount of inorganic substances from the soil each of which is indispensable to its do Volos intent it follows As a matter of course that tho cultivation of that crop for several consecutive cais will abstract so far from the Supply in the soil As ultimately to deprive it of the Power of producing it. But All crops do not exhaust the soil of the same special substances and hence if to cultivate Indian Corn for a couple of years in succession on one Field and then potatoes turnips peas Beans or carrots we shall find that the latter Are by no Means Stul tidied from any Lack of Nutriment each finding its appropriate aliment and in sufficient quantities to insure its healthy growth and n Atu Fatiori. There Aro Many organic substances in the soil which Trio Corn Plant does not pc Cirilley require or appropriate and which Are consequently not exhausted by its while each of them Aro essential to the growth of sortie other vegetable. Lenco it is that when these Are grown alternately the productive Powers of the soil Are not so rapidly exhausted and Fertility is kept up by a sort of recuperative process the organic element necessary for the development of Ono crop having Ticino to to emulate while the soil is occupied by another crop by which they Are riot a in Many sections of our country tho Indian scorn crop is one of prime importance consequently it is frequently cultivated for two three and even four years in succession on the same Field but i have observed whenever this practice has been i judiciously adopted that after the third season generally after the second there is an obvious falling off even when Liberal manuring is adopted. Very few Farmers therefore who consult their own interests arid who have had the Bonoit of experience and observation Are found to favor it either in theory or practice. 1. By adopting a judicious system of rotation and adhering rigidly to it with the assistance of copious manuring returning to the soil Moro if possible than tar crops carry off any land May to retained in a condition of High Fertility while by an opposite course it will As certainly to exhausted and a a run ,. It is a Prin Siplo with to Nevor to attempt tho cultivation of a drop which i cannot afford to manure Well and this should to the policy of every Famor. Ono had better run in debt for manure than exhaust his soil by cropping without or perhaps had bettor suffer his land to Rost until manure Oan to .
