Talk of sin there never was a Ray trom that glorious luminary that fell so Jearm upon the heart of a created Man As a smile from the face of mercy o More. There was a Man who declared upon his heart that miss mercy had made no impression and people said in consequence that he had no heart at All but he had and a pretty Good one too As the sequel will show. It happened too that this very identical Young gentleman with a hard heart or with a heart with a Low covering was the Only one whom mercy herself had really fallen in love with.

In Good time the Yeoman s Blooming daughter returned and busied herself with preparations for supper taking care whenever she could to have her share in the discourse which she did with a pretty spright Liness exceedingly agreeable to her Young admirer. Seeing her attempting to move the great table higher the fire he must needs jump up and with a Graceful officious Ness seek to do it himself the which she appeared to object to in some manner and there was a Little arguing of the matter betwixt them the father looking on with a glimmering smile As if he could see in it something exceeding pleasant. The end was that the two Young people carried the table together manifestly to their extreme satisfaction.

After soaking the seed one Day i commenced sowing Bat rain came on and the soil being rather Clayey it was a Hbl its week before i could sow the re Milinder. The seed was soaked All this time and supposing it was spoiled or injured i sowed it Kieker than usual and had not enough to finish the ground. Accordingly i sent to the Sinae place and got More seed and sowed the remainder without any soaking so that part of my ground was sown with seed soaked one Day another part with seed soaked a week and a third with a soaked seed. Now for the results the part soaked a week came up first and much too thick a the part soaked a Day came up slowly and very thinly a while the a soaked part did not come up at All. Thus showing conclusively the necessity of thoroughly soaking these seeds and the Little danger to be apprehended from soaking too Long. I am confident that inattention to this subject is the most frequent cause of the failure of the Mangel Wurtzel and sugar beet. Respectfully a. B. Rapalje. West Farmington september 1840. Gen.

And a few Farmers think it possible to deviate from this ancient Rule and by digging that vegetable in the fall provide their tables with a very pleasant and useful Winter variety. By taking it up in uie fall we not Only gain a Long use of the Plant but we Liao it in greater perfection for rarely can it be taken up in the Spring before it has sprouted and become igneous.
