The husband had Pill on with the account of his own Drain a will by which he left his Wilo hardly to maintain herself even with the most rigid Economy. It was he said All he possessed. The widow who a i endued Wilh an excellent heart fell a sincere grief at the loss of her during All the Lime of her deepest Afflic Tion there was no Opportunity to address her with a s word of gallantry.

This change of position and his former promises placed him in the attitude of an applicant for her hand in Futor 10 be her future husband and the widow was Loo prudent to risk her upon a Promise rather await the be Gal ties the admirer found himself in i Lurn on the Edge of a precipice.

When he had quilted Iho chateau inc widow who had began to be consoled for her loss through the emptiness of All the line sentiments which were so promising in theory but which proved m hard to practice. She was forced to acknowledge that of ill to brr Ray but not enl Miira to marry her. She herself deserted alone and poor alter such a1 lesson it was with inexpressible Joy that last week she received a letter Contin Slicting the sad news of Hei husbands dual and some Days he himself arrived in the Cha of the tips Lei set lots. Tin take in Uci irn at this time of the ear tie a siring it in such a Way thai a Lien it Sponcil the Blunt end of the Acorn where the cup was is hang it thus prepared in the inside of a bottle or hyacinth Glass containing a us Lac Walrer taking care that the Acorn does not Itai h the water within in Inch wrap Ilir bottle All oct flannel sons to keep it dark and warm t lid put it in a . In three or four weeks Tho Acorn will have so Olin ils coat will have burst and a Little White Point will make ils appearance ill Llie end Opp Silc the this Point is inc Roul the Acorn is now changing ils nature and becoming an Oak Mill however it must be stationed in the dark Kepi Clear of the a lit and soil Musl Ronli nue till the Young Root is at iras Hilf an Inch Long. Then Llie water May be allowed to Rise higher but it is Only when from the neck of the Root a Little Point by gins to Lurn upwards that it is Safe to allow the water Lii touch it. At that Lime Llie Acorn has ceased to be an Acorn and has really become a Young Oak i m the i talc Point directing itself up wards is the beginning of thai i unit which a cent nov later Mav form the Limber of a i Rig iu1. As soon As this Young Stem be gins to shoot tie Oak will require a dose of Light a Little every Day and it also learns for Mure food and its Mot which is in a Enlil ils Musl be allowed to touch tin1 water and to drink it.

I have often thought my reverend Brethren that religious whose pm plot or civil is teaching others too frequently if nol always stand in need of Ossad to Ihm solves i try inic need that one Leach if a Lay proc lips were cup toyed to write and it liver sermons particularly adapted to their wants to their Peculiar defects and instr Miries once in a West he would of As usic Ful and do As Good As any Pic lends to teach Iho laity every sunday. Mai slurs have great Faulls Ivsich almost invariably result from their and the Peculiar routine of their . They arc always occupied in selecting and exposing lilo i auts of others but Alliey never hear of their own Faulls. A certain a carve and affected deference towards Lliam even when they lie Young simple and comparatively ignorant Ami this even from old and Learned men of Ether professions makes them arrogant my dogmatic Al and is Apt to pull them up with lnl1 vain notion that Diny Are really infallible or at Bast in Wisdom and knowledge far in Advance of most other prisons. But my Brethren Elliis is not the this very deference and re serve is the Sim t s. Way to Proton the acquisition of knowledge and the enlargement of Ilie Intel tool. Bold opposition would teach us oar faults Aud defects errors Mil , our false conclusion i and logical infirmities. In the pulpit there is unfortunately no contradiction no opposition not Only custom but the Law self forbids in. Livery thing however weak and absurd is quietly heard at the Lime and polite Ness a gaels that afterwards no criticisms and expose should to made to l in preach or conversation. If after a ser Oti lib should meet company at dinner or in the evening at r. Mooting for Reli Gions Converse and discussion it would to a sir anime thing for him to hear his Sermon 01 his positions contested. Thus ignorance and prejudice remain fixed and Fei blk sch edit runs no like a weak i. My tic Shade. It is nol. So will they arc exposed to , opposition to Iho defection and exposure of in false and every Spe Ciesol mental weakness. Of , increase 01 business professional reputation schemes of ambition will arc on logical acute Ness thorough knowledge and Ilelle Clural strength. No politeness no Reserve no affected defer ence will screen the the indolent the weak Law or from overthrow and Dis Grace. Una this very opposition this rough unfeeling discipline will in Lime if it be wisely improved impart strength and ability Aud him to respectability foot to Eminence. Such in not the minister s lol. Unopposed to becomes to c and More self Kulli Cicil and Dogma tical. Ail his Lisl errors Are retained and to is daily calling into new ones. The pulpit peril is is the very worst possible logical schoo. Another miso Itutti of a is that to associates mostly with women. Tho ladies of his society usually strive to ont i Oiler in their attentions to him and their Izill Ivonee Over him. Lie must attend their sowing circles and o Sci Bene Volent coteries and is to be consulted by them in their Constitution management Mil ways Ami Means. He must make his daily Calls on some one or More of the family of his charge and there he rarely meets any but females. This is not All. Tho men who collect or undid the minister though often Good and. Pious Are mostly Point Thoy should cite them fairly candidly and according to the True mid rational moaning shown by the context. They should not blindly Content themselves with taking mechanically such As Are in elementary works or in old books but such As arc satisfactory Anil convincing to their own and not easily shown to be in applicable vague and inclusive. In Short ministers must be honest in Tell genl and not having re course to weak Sopor sly and unsupported statements under Tho belief that their audience have nol knowledge or under Sund sufficient to detect such attempted in positions. It is not uncommon that la Large portion of Llie hearers Are better informed and p assess More logical ii Sleness than inc preacher himself. 1 forbear Iny Brethren to mention of her dangers and disadvantages Loo often Aris ing from the intimacy and sympathy is Ling Between a minister and his fair parishioners. J uni or recur to them on a future Post. Profits or fruit cult cab. Are sem Limos called old to their intellects have a feminine Litch yield enquirer gives Llie names of 174 per sons now residing in the town of zilch yield who Are seventy years old and up ids females 49 of the null it Are 80 Aud upwards. Such men. Intruder. They fire under die in fluence of feeling and than of Voisson and reflection. To Short ministers arc so much in the society of ladies and lady Tike men and Aie Little in that of Well , Superior my i that their intellects become Fumi Nino by habit. Consequently their pulpit discourses Are Loose illogical common place and unil Austing. Their state cents Are Senle and unfounded and have been repeatedly shown to be so and their Are weak in conclusive and such As have again and again been employed and As of ten refuted. If ministers would be sound efficient and respectable in the pulpit they must associate much with laymen of Strong sense and solid knowledge and Dis cuss important questions freely with such persons. They must read not Only tie common profession in books and the old arguments hut they must read the opposite Side and learn How such supposed facts and old arguments have Baen answered. They should study nol Only the theological works of Oiler sects but me controversial writings of the most Uaje und Learned de its also. In quoting scriptural Atil Hori lies in support of any theological or moral pin having seen in a late number of the an account of u Cherry tree that produced ten dollars Worth of fruit in one season permit to to a Jive a chapter of i ails on fruits most of which Are Willi in my own personal knowledge. 0. A. Cable of Cleveland has an or Chard of an Hundred Cherry Recs now 2s years old. In the year 1845, his crop sold for upwards of one in Busand dollars. Or. C. Manages his Orchard Butler than any Othet person in the Union so far As Rny knowledge extends. The Trees arj3 planted out Twenty five feet apart the ground properly enriched and cultivated but no crop is put in of near Philadel has inc remains of a Cherry Orchard numbering Trees mostly of the May Duke variety. In the height of the season his Salus amount to upwards of eighty dollars per Day or. S. To ensure a Good crop every season digs in a horse curl Load of manure to each tree in autumn. Hill inn null of Darby has Twenty Apple Trees of the Early Redstreak and Queen Vari Elios that stand on half tin acre of ground. In 18-10 these Trees produced three Hundred bushels of fruit that sold Market for 78 cents per Bushel or two Hundred and Twenty five dollars for the crop. Or. Pc null has a grape Vine of Llie Kleeoon Fox grape indie a that covers the top of fourteen Apple Trees. In bus never been pruned but produces seventy five bushels of grapes yearly that sell for one Dollar per Bushel. The Apple Trees produce Good crops of fruit and under Llie Trees is produced a crop of grass thus a Kimg three crops from one lol of Gromad. J.ime-9 Laws of Philadelphia a Washington Plum tree that produced six bushels of fruit yearly thai would sell ii Market for ten dollars per Bushel. Five of the above plums weigh a Pound. Or. Laws has a Small Vineyard of Isa Bella and Catawba or pcs near Chester sixteen Miles below Philadelphia three eights of in acre of which came into hearing in 1845. The sales amounted to three Hundred doll irs no Eigil cents per Pound or at Iho Rale of eight Hundred Dol Lars per acre from vines Only four years old. Jar Talon Darlington of West Chester pa., has a Catawba grape Vine that produces ton bushels of grapes yearly. This crop is Worth forty dollars at Market Price. Jacob Stcin Mulz of Philadelphia has a ulue a Igo Plum tree thai produces ten bushels of fruit in a season Worth in Market thirty dollars. My Friend Ellwood Harvey c a tides Ford p.i., the present season gathered shiite ii quarts of Goose carries from one Plant. A Gardener near Philadelphia has iwo rows of Goosberry plants one Hundred and fifty feel Long. One afternoon he gathered with his own hands six by Sheds of fruit and inc next morning sold them in Philadelphia Market for Twenty four Dol Lars. A genl Leinan of Philadelphia having two Apricot tortes that produced More fruit than his family could consume concluded to aund the balance to Market and exp Jid the Money it would bring in Pur chasing Wood for the poor. Judge line of Carlisle pa., had two syrian Apricot Trees that have produced five bushels to each tree in a season in the Lii Ladelphia Market they would commanded one Hundred and Twenty dollars in the new York Market one Hundred and forty dollars. Hutti Hatch of Camden n. J., has Lour Tewksbury Winter Blush Apple Trees that in i Fig produced one Hundred and forty Market baskets of apples. Wilbut any extra care ninety baskets of these were on hand late in the Spring of 1847, when Thoy readily sold at one Dollar per Basket. The following incas Rel alive to fail growing near the North River 1 hive never seen published. Three years ago or. Charles Downing of n. Y., informed my a fruit of his acquaintance in Fisi kill Landing of. Y., had gathered of apples from one Irce Anil sold Ihm in new York for forty live dollars. The same gentle Man you speak of in your fruits and fruit Trees of As having sent to new York sixteen Hundred bushels of plums in one season Lias sent to new York apricots and received fourteen Dol Lars per i Nislick for them. The above gentleman has often said that his Plum Trees which arc set out about the build Ings and Lake up but Little room him More profit than like whole of his valuable farm of iwo Hundred acres. Another fruit grower in your neighbourhood has sent four Hundred bushels of Frost age plums to in one season and received twelve Hundred dollars for them. Yel with All fads before up Iacre is no full Supply of any kind of fruit in the Philadelphia Market except Priches. Many Farmers and gardeners no Alert set Ting out fruit Trees from a natural negligence others dislike to fifty cents fora Plum Irce others again Aro Ifrain that every body will go to frail growing and bring Down the Price to Al most nothing. But we would ask if t Ere is any More danger of every body commencing Large scale the culture of fruit than there is that every body will commence the raising of onions or the making of razor Strops or the Chili ovation of Rose yours etc., ii. Cd. The Bridge at Nia Aba Falls. I have been intensely int crested to Day in listening to a description from a Well informed and competent source of the great Bridge Over the Gorge that separates to 0 dominions of the Queen from those of the president. If any thing could be wanting in the aural icon of Iho country about Niagara to turn thither the tour of the multitudes in the pleasure season this Bridge will Supply it. Ils thousand ions of weight of tic strongest thai the ingenuity of the Iron master Oati de sire find a Safe support in wrought Iron anchors a nit in the solid Rock one Hun dred feel below he surface so that before it could yield inc very Rock bound Earth Woald forsake its tenacity. A Large wooden is to be placed so that no undulating Molion be experienced. In full sight of inc Cataract the surge of an Gry Walers far by Cadi he sullen storm beaten rocks All around the Quick locomotive will put Forth All ils quickness to Rush beyond Iho perils of its journey. Thin is already begun the Money for ils Cost in and available the excavations the contractor is to pass on horseback by the Middle of next june. Its firmness is to be such int Wilh All the Burden of a powerful locomotive and a Long attendant train of cars ii is not to vibrate one Inch in the the railway is to occupy the Centre iwo Carriage ways on either Side and two foot ways. What a magnificent spectacle Lii is in full use will present a Road of this kind Over the Straits in Wales famous for displayed in ils that Over the Niagara will soon be world famed. It will be an Iron link of civilization Between Iho ruling Powers of the world and will never be severed. One of that first thoughts that presents itself in reference to the constr Naclion is As to How the wires arc Lobo thrown across. The Steamboat now used below the fulls is to Lake Over iwo cables to which strands of Iron Are affixed. These Are to be drawn Over till two rope of Iron Are drawn Over on which a temporary pathway is to he placed and when i inquired where work men could be found thai had nerve enough to work effectually under such Circum stances the answer so characteristic of american strength of action was of there Are always plenty of Yankees who have both the courage to work there and the ingenuity to work Welt the great railway in Canada which is to connect with this mighty work presents some admirable features. Ils Grade is nol Over Twenty feet and a very Large proportion of the distance is in a straight Tine. On one line perfectly straight ninety Miles Are Laid out. All the highways of inc country arc to pass either Over or under the Road by depression or Elevation so to be entirely removed that there will be neither obstacles nor hindrance to a Light which will put More life into the provincial dominions of her Bri Tamsic majesty than it yet Serin that Kame province of Canada West has Cyl to Sre great Days. England spends millions on sections of her great Dominion far less worthy of her and fostering eyes. The last link is completed when this great Bridge of the shall have been completed.
