Oh, do not smilot it gives me pain
To ace thy WO dissembled ;
Relmo those blinding deeps again,
Which on thine eyelids trembled.
Smile not; or else thy heart will break
The wild deceit to borrow ;
'Twill heavier make the cold, dull ache
Of agonizing sorrow.
Bond, in thy sad, resistless grief,
Unto the cruel hmiter ;
That flood of tears will give relief,
And make the agony lighter.
Smile not; 'twill bind the eanheting, chain
Around thy heart still deeper;
But rather choose the easier pain,
And bend ; a mournful weeper.
Let Nature take the course that God
To Nature's sons bath given.
Oh, kneel, and kiss the smiting rod;
'Twill bring thee close to lleaven.
Make it a point of duty to keep the soil of
your corn crop open to the atmospheric in
fluences, and perfectly free from weeds. Use
the cultivator or corn-harrow freely and often
in the early stage of the growth ofyour corn
plants and up to the time of laying the corn
by. Whatever others may say to the con
trary, we would never put a plough in a
corn-field after the plants are up. If we did
not ash and plaster at the time of planting
the corn, we would give the rows a free
dusting at the time of the first working,
with a mixture of five parts ashes and one
part plaster—say at the rate of five bush
els of ashes and ono bushel of plaster per

As the wheat crop is always liable to be
attacked with the rust, and mostly about the
time the grain is near its mf.turity, we take
time by the fore-lock to remind our wheat
growing friends, that it is always safest,
when wheat is attacked by this disease to
cut it early.
Now as every planter and farmer should
have his patch of buckwheat, to supply his
family in winter with that delicious accom
paniment of the breakfast table—buckwheat
cakes—we trust that each and all of them
will put in an acre or two for the purpose.
Oct it in by the 10th or 15th of the month;
give the ground a moderate dressing of ma
nure, and a good crop will be the result, un- .
less the weather proves inauspicious.
Buckwheat, besides, when reduced to flour,
making good breakfast cakes—the grain as
an alternate food for poultry is excellent and
healthful—while the straw is good for cattle.
Indeed, it may be grown very profitable for
hay forage for them.
When grown for grain it should be har

When grown for cattle-forage, harvest
when the plant first comes into bloom.
For grain ; sow 2 pecks of seed per acre—
for hay, sow 3 or 4 pecks per acre.
CUTTING AND CURING HAY.
All the grasses and clover, are the better

it remain a few hours in the swath, it should

HARVEST TOOLS AND IMPLEMENTS
Examine all your harvest tools and imple
ments critically, and have all that need it,
thoroughly repaired at once, as delay in this
essential point may prove dangerous If on
examining these you find your stock insuffi
cient for your purpose, purchase more imme
diately, and while you are making your pur
chases, recollect that the best agricultural
implements and tools though they may cost
a little more in the beginning are always
cheapest in the end.
Ten gallons of cold water, 1 gallon of mo
lasses, 1 quart of vinegar, and lb. of ground
ginger, well stirred together, makes a health
ful and refreshing drink for the harvesters,
with which they should be supplied at short
intervals of time.
While upon this subject we will crave leave
to' be indulged with the remark, that harvest
hands should be generously fi cl : and that,
while at work, singing should be encouraged.

Look through your „orchards and destroy
all the catepillar nests you find.
The trunk of the peach trees near to and
just under the ground, should be examined
for worms, and. whenever a hole is discover

needle, or a piece of wire should be inserted
to kill the worm. This done paint the entire

GREEN FRUIT.-A correspondent writes us
on this subject:—Never permit green fruit to
decay on the soil beneath the trees. In every
apple, pear, plum and cherry, which is pre
maturely cast, there exists a minute insect
which eats its way out in time, and becomes
the source of evil to the succeeding crop.—
Gather all up, and either feed them to your
domestic animals, or dispose of them in some
way which will secure you against the re
sults which must necessarily ensue from ne
glect. Swine turned into orchards the last
of June, and permitted to have access till
the fruit is gathered, afford a good protec
tion against insects by destroying the wormy
fruit that produces them.
reZr. Girls beware of transient young gents;
never suffer the addresses of a stranger;
recollect that one good, steady farmer boy or
mechanic is worth all the floating trash in
the world; the illurements of a dandy jack,
with a gold chain about his neck, a walking
stick in his paw, some honest tailor's coat on
his back, and a brainless skull can never
make up the loss of a kind father's house,
a good mother's counsel, and the society of
brothers and sisters; their affections last,
while that of such a young man is lost at
the wane of the honeymoon.
Food for Horses—Value of Carrots,
Carrots are very excellent "fodder" for hor
ses that have been long kept on highly car
bonaceous food, and whose digestive organs
may be out of order in consequence of their
constant activity in reducing meal and
oats into the the elements of animal nutri
tion. With a fair allowance of carrots, good
ground oats and sweet hay, a horse will en
joy good health and spirits, have a loose hide,
shining coat and healthy lungs. A daily al
lowance of carrots should always be furn
ished to horses, the subjects of indigestion ;
whose food often runs into fermentation, in
ducing diarrliceit or a lax washy state of the
bowels. Carrots furnish an acid called pec
tic which possesses the curious property of
g,elatonizing the watery contents of - the di
gestive cavities. A few drops of this pectic
acid will gelatanize both, and when mixed
with the juice of an orange, changes the
same into jelly. So that if the alvine dis
charges of a horse are watery, carrots can be
used as a valuable therapeutic agent, both
in view of arresting the same and restoring
the tone of the stomach and bowels. By ex
amining the excrement of a horse, fed in
part on carrots, it would to contain no undi
gested hay nor oats, and therefore we may
safely infer that they promote digestion, so
that by the constant use of carrots, less quan
tities of hay and oats will suffice than when
a larger amount is consumed and parted with
in an undigested. For fattening animals
carrots are exceedingly valuable. It will be
urged that carrots are not very nutritious;
that may be ; still, if they possess the proper
ty of gelatanizing the contents of the stomach
and bowels, they aid in the manufacture of
fat out of other food, which might otherwise
pass out of the system.
It is said that the milk of a cow at mid
winter, fed on carrots, is equal in flavor to
that supplied from clover in summer, while
the butter from such milk presents a rich
orange color, and does not taste, as some
persons suppose, of the peculiar flavor of this
vegetable. Two bushels of oats and one of
carrots, is a better food for a horse than three
bushels of oats without carrots, and when
the animal is used for light work only, the
quantity of carrots may be' increased.
The reader must bear in mind, however,
that animals, like ourselves, have their pecu
idiosyncrasies or susceptibilities—"what
is one man's food is another man's poison"—
and some might digest, and thrive amazing
ly on a given article of food, while an equal
number shall lose both flesh and spirits.—
There appears, however, to be less objection
to the judicious use of carrots than many ot
her vegetables, both as regards horses and
If any of our readers happen to have
-what we call a "stall fed horse, and the same
shall be the subject of heaves," (sometime a
symptom of indigestion only,) let them take
away the fine meals and substitute carrots,
and our word for it, the horse will improve.
SALT TO DESTROY WORMS, &c.—ln that excel
lent paper, the Germantown Telegraph, we
find some remarks on the value of salt to de
stroy worms on vegetables. We copy what
follows A weak brine. not exceeding the
strength of sea-water, proves a remedy for
the "squash destroyer," one of the insiduous
and persevering, as well as voraciously de
structive enemies with which the gardener
and fruit grower is called to contend. It is
also a most effectual preventive of aphides, or
plant lice, vermin which prey upon the cab
bage and turnip tribes. In every instance
of the applecation of brine to those vegeta
bles that has fallen under our observation,
its success has been complete. No injury
need be apprehended from a very liberal ap
plication, say one quart to a plant, if the so
lution be of the strength indicated.
All the cabbage tribe aro liable to be at
tacked and fatally injured by minute mag
gots, resembling, very nearly, the maggots
in cheese, and which are doubtless the larva
of some fly. There is another enemy, also,
by which they arc frequently infested—a
small grub, similar, in many respects, to
these found in corn and potato hills, and
which not unfrequently prove very destruc
tive. Salt water applied to the hills will
have a tendency to arrest their depredation,
and if the application be repeated frequently
say once in two or three days, it will effectu
ally destroy or drive them off.
The water, however should not be allowed
to come in contact with the foliage, in this
instance, but should be applied to the soil
immediately around the stalks, but without
coming in actual contact with them. To de
stroy the first named insects, it may be ap
plied in a state sufficiently dilute to admit of
a perfect ablution of every part of the foli
age ; but as we said before, care must be ta
ken not to make it too strong, or it will de
stroy the plant. Every cook knows, or ought
to know that the washing of cabbage, let-
tuce spinach, &c., in salt water before cook
ing or preparing for the table, is sure to ex
pel every species of insect which so frequent
ly seeks a habitation or a shelter in these
vegetables.—From the Western Agricultu
BLOOD STOCK.-It seems impossible to make
some people understand what is meant by the
expression, "Blood Stock." They will twist,
and turn, and laugh at the idea that any
fanner, by judicious selections, has reared a
herd of cattle that inherits the principal traits
of the animals selected to begin with.
They laugh at the idea of keeping the very
best for breeders—and will tell you how a
chance animal of their own has excelled the
herds denominated "blood stock."
And yet when you ask what reliance they
can have on the progeny of chance animals,
they will tell you that they have bred from
the same for sixty years in succession, and
therefore they arc confident of success in
rearing their calves.
Now this is precisely the doctrine of the
advocates of "blood stock." They breed
from the best, and cast off the inferior ani
mals. They want no crosses with the infe
rior animals, and are confident that by pur
suing this course, they arc on the right road
to perfection, however long that road may
Still there is another class of farmers who
profess to think that the most promiscuous
intercourse between the males and females of
cattle, will tend to produce better dairy cows
and better working oxen, than can be produ
ced by any kind of selection.
These farmers inquire what is meant by
" blood stock." They would prefer to buy
from the most promiscuous herds of cattle,
because they occasionally find an extraordi
nary cow that yields more than the average
of blood stock. If one in fifty is found to
excel the average of select stuck, they seem
to think they have proved their case, and are
ready for judgment.
But what progress do such people make in
farming? The same which a gambler makes
to get a fortune. Ile runs for luck, and
makes but little calculation, except upon the
want of information of those who may he in
duced to play with him.—. Mass. Plowman.
HORSE SHOES ON A NEW PRINCIPLE.-A
Philadelphia mechanic has constructed a
horse-shoe in such a manner that it requires
no nails, and can be put on by any one with
out the aid of a blacksmith. Attached to the
toe is a flange extending around the hoof;
and at the back of 'the shoe, which lies over
the frog of the borse'a , foot, is a joint, held in
its place by a screw, which allows the shoe
to open and close, so as to accommodate itself
to the size of the hoof. Between the hoof
and the plate is placed a layer of gutta-percha,
for the purpose of preventing injury to the
hoof or leg of the horse by concussion, while
running over hard roads or streets. The me
chanism is very simple, and the cost much
below that of ordinary shoes.
"Manners" is the sultject of a passage in
the American Journal of Education, in which
Dr. Huntingdon, the author of the same,
says some admirable things. Mark them
parents and teachers :
"A noble and attractive every-day bearing
comes . of goodness, of sincerity, of refine
ment. And these are bred in years, not
moments. The principle that rules your

perfect gentleman ; but then he was the he
ro that on the field of Zutphen pushed away
the cup of cold water from his own fevered

habitually make their home in the heart,
they will beset, not perhaps a factitious and
finical drawing-room etiquette, but the breed
ing of a genuine and more royal gentility, to
which no simple, no young heart will refuse
its homage. Children are not educated till
they catch the charm that makes a gentle
man or a lady ! A coarse and slovenly teacher,
a vulgar and boorish presence, munching ap
ples or chestnuts at recitations like a squirrel,
pocketing his band like a mummy, projec
ting his heels nearer the firmament than his
skull, like a circus clown, and dispensing
American saliva like a member of Congress,
inflicts a wrong on the school-raom for which
no scientific attainments are an offset. An

his personal carriage, deserves, on the prin
ciple of Swedenborg's retributions, similia

The Rich Heart
Every thing that is called fashion and cour
tesy, humbles itself before the cause and
fountain of honor, creators of titles and dig
nities, namely, the heart of love. This is the
royal blood, this is the fire, which in all coun
tries and contingencies, will work after his
kind, and conquer and expand all that ap
proaches it. This gives new meanings to ev
ery fact. This impoverishes the rich, suffer
lug no grandeur but its own. What is rich !
Are you rich enough to hold any body ? rich
enough to make the Canadian, in his wagon ;
the itinerant, with his consul's paper, which
commends him "to the charitable ;" the
swarthy Italian, with his low broken words
of English ; the lame pauper hunted by over
seers from town to town, even the poor insane,
besotted wreck of man or woman, feel the
noble exceptions of your presence and your
house, from the general bleakness and stone
iness ; to make such feel that they were greet
ed with a voice which made them both re
member and hope ? What is vulgar, but to
refuse the claim on acute and conclusive rea
sons ? What is gentle, but allow it, and give
their hearts and yours one holiday from the
national caution? Without the rich heart,
wealth is an ugly beggar.
A Sunday :Family 'Dinner
A Sunday family dinner, where all its mem
bers being separated perhaps for a week,
unite under the parental roof, appears to us
one of the most delightful circles imaginable.
When a home loses its attraction, we may re
ly on it there is fault somewhere; parents
have become unkind or children prodigal,
and when aversion takes place, how great a
source of enjoyment cut off from the parent
—how great a privilege is forfeited by the
children I - Where can we find a welcome like
home ? It is at once the altar where we wor
ship—the sanctuary where we flee. How
many temptations arc resisted, where the
child thinks of home, or when the parent
thinks of the child—each to the other is a
monitor—conscious that the other is watching
its conduct and his welfare.
A Lesson from the Birds.
A gentleman observed in a thicket of bush
es near his dwelling, a collection of brown
thrushes who for several days attracted his
by their loud cries and strange
movements. At length, curiosity was so
much excited, that he determined to see if
he could ascertain the cause of the excite
ment among them.
On examining the bushes he found a fe
male thrush, whose wing was caught on a
limb in such a mannner that she could not
escape. Near by was her nest, containing
several half grown birds. On retiring a lit
tle distance, a company of thrushes appear
ed, with worms and other insects in their
mouths, which they gave first to the mother
and then to her young; she, the meanwhile,
cheering them in their labor of love with a
song of gratitude.
After watching the interesting scene until
curiosity was satisfied, the . gentleman releas
ed the poor bird, when she flew to her nest
with a grateful song to her deliverer; and
her charitable neighbors dispersed to their
several abodes, singing, as they went, a song
