At about forty years of age he began to study Medicine a Little and to take care of his health a great Deal. He in might Medicine books prowled about the wards of hospitals and made himself As unhappy As any comfortable Middle aged single gentleman could wish to be. I Learned these particulars of him from a Friend who recommended him to me. When i was first called to attend him not knowing that his diseases were All imaginary i was quite taken in fur about a a Quarter of an hour or so. I found him lying on his Back on Tho sofa the room darkened and he was groaning in an extremity of anguish. I turned to his housekeeper who bad marshalled me in and said what is the matter with or.

We know of but few Maiden ladies who have not Superior intellects. Beautiful to Gate upon they May not be but they have mental Beauty that cannot fade that will glow with More freshness As time dims the Rosy hush of Houlb. What ladies set no business for themselves and make Money ? the unmarried. Who arc our Host female authors old maids. Few men appreciate them few study their characters and consequently the most Talt Utcy of the female sex remain in a single state. They have More respect for themselves than to flatter or receive flattery. They will not put themselves Forward to catch a wan or do any mean things but they silence tic ill bred and foppish who denounce them is old Mai disc when for sparkling wit for mental accomplishments and real Worth they far far outstrip the Butterfly Belles that hang so languidly on the arms of simple fops.

They arc moved by pity and never withhold their sympathies and their aids. But for them Bow Many a heart would he Chocol cwt How Many an aching head remain a soothed. They go Forth like god s ministering Angels wherever the footprints of poverty can to found or consumption a fatal Arrow Lins been sent and Light with Joy the heavy heart and Cany peace and Consolation to the Ali Doc of sorrow. Never speak a word of disrespect against an old maid. She is an Honor to her sex. We could not spare her from our sin polluted and afflicted world. Think of her Virtues in your heart and Ever have a cheerful word and pleasant smile for her. Home Industry. A Friend in Hanover has sent is a specimen of a Shingle the production of female labor. It is of the Best Quality regularly drawn and a Baa straight As a it appears that the Virginia women in that Region having found that the men Are not Quick enough in establishing Home Industry have determined to set them an example and two of them in Hanover Young of handsome figure and fall of spirit having been reduced by necessity to self dependence have taken hold of Tho saw axe and drawing knife and get upon an average 6,000 shingles n week. We Are desired to say that if there be any bachelors in this City who desire their houses covered Bachelor editors not excepted they can be furnished with any Quantity by forwarding their orders to the misses Christian Noah the slash cottage Hanover.

Indeed yes and when i remonstrated he actually turned me out a of of a i flattered myself that i had made a great hit in or. Augustus Browne Scase by my mention of the Prepend rating pills and i was Only astonished at the amount of credulity upon the subject i sent him some extremely mild pills composed of a common harmless drug and waited the result with some degree of patience and a considerable degree of expectation. In a few Days a message came to me to go to or. Brown immediately for be feared he was sinking fast sinking oat said l yes sir. Is he to weak ? weak sir yes you say he b sinking.

Alas How vain arc human anticipations just three nights after i was rang no in the Middle of my first sleep so violently that i thought for a moment that the House must be on Gre. I popped my head out of window and asked who a there ? me was the reply a very usual one by the Way in Der such circumstances. Who a me said i with a laudable contempt at the moment for grammar.

His a a be replied. Sir May a a let me Tell you once for Allma a a x<7tj me unhappy victims the potato in Ireland. In a work entitled a annals of the famine in Ireland a by mrs. A. Nicholson we find the following interesting extracts the writer travelled through Ireland during the famine of 1847, 1848, and 1849, and what she says b from actual observation attachment to the potato. A brother of Theobald Mathew had planted a Field of Twenty seven acres in almost certain Faith that they would not he blasted for weeks they flourished and promised to yield an abundant crop. The poor people in the neighbourhood were Blessing the Good god for Tho Beautiful Patch of Tho a kind gentleman a and seemed As Happy As though they were ripening fur their own use. They have been known to go and look into the Field and take off their hats and in Humble adoration a less the name of god for he great merry in sending them the potato again. The was their snal practice when they saw a Fiebel looking vigorous. But in one night the spoiler came the Beautiful Field in the morning had in isolated spots the withering touch of the fatal disease to a few Days the Rich extensive crop would not pay the labourer for he toil in gathering it. All was Over and in silent despondency each one submitted to the stroke. The a a still Small voice seemed to say a be still and know that i am their Rod of open Tsiou yet they emphatically a skin the nal and Liim that hath appointed it a and could a decree now go Forth that lie is Tato should lie restored to its Pristic soundness and health and that the present generation and their posterity fit a Ever should feed on this Root exclusively and have work six a lays a week at foil Spence or Sirju uce a Day there would be a Universal Jubilee kept through Mountain and Glen and bonfires from Bill top to i log would ext Ingul h the Light of Moon and Star for Many a Joyful night. And let it he expected by those who would do Good to Ireland and elevate her in the scale of being that it will be Many a Long year before the sickle will be As joyfully and heartily worked As the it Palt be. The Spade has a thousand associations entwining in Aud about the hearts of Parent and child which no other instrument of husbandry can claim it has Cut the turf that lighted up the mud Wall Cabin and toiled the a blessed potato it has dug the pit in front of the Cabin for the Duck it and. It has Pill the manure Heap at tic Comer Mountain High it has planted the Ridge which furnished their daily bread it has made the ditch Aud repaired the Road it has stood by the Hearth or door through Many a dark Aud Stormy night to guard the Little stack for the cow against the tithe gatherer it has been a fireside and Field companion and above All and Over Alt it has measured and hollowed out Many a last sleeping bed fur a Darling child a beloved husband or wife and in the dark Days of the famine it has often been the Only companion to accompany the father Mother husband wife or child who has had the Corpse of a hunger stricken relative in a sack or tied to the Back to convey it to the dread Unicof find pit where Are tumbled in Burtrid confusion the starved dead of All Ages. Tic sickle has not that claim to the affections of what is generally called tic a lower it is More aristocratic in its station and occupation. It has been used in the hands of the poor to reap Down the Fields of the Rich a for nought it has Cut the wheat and the Barley for the tax gatherer the landlord and Tkv sur pm iced a binding a who a reaps where he sowed not Quot and a gathers where be had not the Farmer. Jenny Lind. Lind s second concert at Rochester was a before fully attended and gave general satisfaction. The premiums at the auction Sale of tickets amounted to 82,500, which goes to charities. Apropos we learn that mad he Lind made her appearance on foot in the streets of Auhorn several times while in that City and because she could do so without the annoyance of a train of followers. She visited the prison also and was conducted through the shops occasionally speaking encouraging words to the convicts who were permitted by the keeper under the relaxation of the rules to reply. In one of the Shotis a convict aware of her presence sent round a shaving among his Fellows upon which her name was written with Chalk. The kind interest she exhibit it was something few Whichman could a it. Of a m h a h a. M a t urn a a a to in a Hawaii a 1. A a. .1 reprove his brother and he dared not ret proach his god. A and what a said an old woman sitting by her vegetable stall a a would become of us miserable bodies if god almighty had sent the blast on of and left the potato a this was in the Anuran of 1815, when but a partial failure took place the blast had not yet fallen on Man but it did fall and swept them Down As grass before the mowers scythe yet not one of the victims through Long months of starvation was heard to murmur against god. They thanked Bis holy name loth when they saw the potato grow to Luxuriance and when they saw it dried As by a scorching heat. It was one of the most touching striking features of Tho Amine to see a family looking into a withered Patch which the Day before looked promising and hear the exclamations of wonder and Praise weeping and thanksgiving mingled together a a he a sent the blast blessed be his holy a this blessed will be done a and Well All die with inn Ger and Praise god we re All poor sinner a a. They literally and practically carried out the principle of one in ancient Days who said a though he slay me yet will i Trust in him a for though year after year they saw the Root on which they and their fathers had lived melt away yet they could not to persuaded but that the Good god would give them the potato again Aud in 18467-8-9, when each successive year had produced the same if not worse affects they yet persisted in Taring oftentimes by stealth some part of a sound potato to keep it from the hungry months of their children that they might put it in the ground and a Praise god we will have the potato again a would be the persevering reply to All Export Alstom. So wedded Are toy to this Root that notwithstanding a philosopher in new Orleans has dts covered Kat much of the Wekesa in Many know and deeply feel that it has been town is owing to bad health.

She Sung the Echo song there and was enchanted with the precision with which her own notes came Down to Alunni aryans. An i Sci morning a number of Fine looking indians men and women were favored with so interview by Jenny Lind in her apartments at the Eagle hotel where she Sung several of her most admired songs greatly to the Delight of the children of the Forest. The Melody of the a a Nightingale was overheard in the Street and in a few Quinn to.

Drilling when Mes he it it us a having a Little i sure and being desirous of saying something that would he Quot fax refit to the Farmers of this county i will take the a re it Nup tinn to intrude us Xin your column and the patience of your Farmer readers for i Brief space whilst i shall Endeavor to How them the advantages of Drill 111 Bandry Over the uld system. In doing so i am not actuated by the vain thought that 1 am wider thou Roy neighbors but will merely say what i hive earn. J from the truthful teaching of that Sage instructor experience. In in stand and in China where the population is very dense and where every in Eli of ground is cultivated to the list advantage drilling is very fully and Exten icly practice. Bat we need not go so far from Home for evidence of its superiority. In our sister states of Ivun Shiva Uia and Delaware it line been practice far several year with signal to i is. In the counties of Lancaster and Chester in in in no a and in new cast in , it has almost entirely superseded the old plan. And Why ? Tiu Ruly it must have some advantage Over the Obi system or those keen eyed Money saving Farmer of Lancaster would nut adopt it fruit or. Noble of new Castle county Delaware where fanning is carried to a greater perfection than perhaps anywhere else in the United states we have published fact sustained by the sworn certificates of disinterested Perseus clearly showing the superiority of drilling wheat Over broadcasting. The result of his experience was that in Bis crops averaging from 28 to 35 bushels per acre the a Hillel wheat produced from 7 to s bushels per Are store than the broadcast. But now to our experience. The writer of this Long since impressed with the idea that our old system of seeding wheat was radically wrong was determined u soon As be could do so to obtain a Drill. This he did two years ago and the result of his experience las fully confirmed him in Hia previously formed opinions. He reasoned in this Wise if we Plant one Grain of wheat it should bring us one stalk and that stalk Uduc head containing 30 grains. Now his is Low for one Grain almost invariably brings 3 or 4 stalks and often Inaus More. But to thaw Mure clearly the strength of our position we will make it As Luw As Fossil do. If then we get fur every Grain we Row one head containing 30 grains we get 30 fur 1. But is such the Case in our old practice of sowing wheat ? no Aud i am sorry Stosuy very far from it. I have fur a number of years kept a regular account of no a crops harvested and the seed sown to produce that Harvest la or 10 years from 1s39 to is 18, inclusive the average yield for wheat sown broadcast has been 74 to 1 sown which was 15 per acre assuming 2 bushels to have Bce u sown per acre. In in 13 it was As Low As 5 to 1, and in is 18 As High As ii to 1. Now if As we have id Yuwu 30 to i can be raised at Tho invest rate we can put it and our data show a yield of ouly 7 j to 1,1 ask where is the enormous loss ? certainly the greater Jurt of it is in the nun our of putting in the seed. When put in with the plow some is Cuy Rcd so deep that the in fluence of the Sun and air Nevor reach it and it Rota. Some is put in so shallow that in the Winter it is Frozen out and also lost. but a Small portion that happens to be in he right place remains to repay the Husbandman fur i arduous labor. But when planted with the Drill he Coso is different. Being planted at a regular depth comparatively none is lost and being in the Bottom of tic Furrow the action of the Frost in Winter tends to feed it with the a rumbling Earth thereby cultivating it. My drilled wheat last year that was uninjured by the Fly from 1 Jwo per acre produced we 45 to i. Now this is considerably above the broadcast. This year it promises much bettor. 1 knew a lot last year which was drilled that produced 22 to 1 sown without manure. But the advantage of drilling is not Only in the increased proportionate yield but also in the saving of seed and Imbo. Witch is a considerable item. In seeding 1uu acres with the Drill you save from 50 to 75 bushels of wheat in the seed you save the trouble of furrowing out your ground of sowing Jour wheat of shovel ploughs and of the extra fore required to shovel it in. With the Drill after the ground is ploughed and harrowed Una Man a boy and two hone will put in 7 or 8 acres a Day and that can be Dono whilst the plows Are going in some other Fields. In conclusion let Sac advise any Fanner who doubts what i have said to procure a Good Drill and try it fairly not Only once but several times Aad my word for it by will never quit it. But my Adrice is get
