Thinking a description of the modus oper
andi of planting corn in this region might in
terest some of your readers, I have concluded
to give you a short sketch of the plan of
planting. And first in order is ploughing the
ground. If corn stalks, we usually break
down the stalks before the frost goes out of
the ground, by hitching a horse to each end
of a pole some 20 feet long, and putting a
boy on each horse - and running over the
ground. The best time to do it is on a frosty
day in March. After this some rake the
stalks together - with a horse and rake and
burn them. The ground is then plowed—a
good span of horses or mules will plow about
3 acres per day. The ground is then marked
off with two horses and a rough concern call
ed a marker, which makes three marks at a
time from three feet six inches to four feet
wide. Next comes the planter crossing the
marks at right angles, a two-horse machine,
half sled and half wagon combined ; the dri
ver sits - on an elevated seat on the hind part
of the machine, over two wheels or rollers—
the dropper occupies a low seat on the front
or sled end, and the runners make the marks,
and the dropper by means .of a lever drops
two drills at once by a single stroke of the
lever as it crosses each mark, and the rollers
press the ground over the seed. A common
team with two hands will plant from 12 to
15 acres in a day. So you see corn planting
is made easy at last, at least to the boys if not
to the horses. The machine spoken of is the
invention of G. W. Brown, of Knox county,
in this State, where they are manufactured.
They have only been in use a few years, but
they are destined to supersede every thing
else in this Prairie country. The speed with
which corn can be planted makes them inval
uable, particularly such seasons as this when
farmers are kept back with their spring work.
Nine tenths of the corn in this and adjoining
counties will be planted with them this sea
son. There will be a very large crop planted
this season. Spring has come at last, and
the Spring wheat looks fine, though late sown.
WHAT IS HOME WM:MUT A FATHER ?
Sad, dreary and cheerless ! I have sung in
days gone by, when I was merry and light
hearted, "What is home without a mother?"
though I did not realize its meaning. But
I have realized, from the very depths of my
soul, that home without a father is lonely,
gloomy and mournful, beyond description.—
Two weeks from to-day he sat by the fire,
and we were all happy then. But now he
"sleeps the sleep that knows no waking."—
"At twilight's soft and. pensive hour," we
gather around the old stone hearth, and
listen to the crackle of the glaring fire; but
it has ceased to be cheerful. No sound is
heard but the wailings of our mourning
mother, or the prattle of our sweet little sis
ter, asking, in childish accents, if papa has
gone to live with God. The family circle is
broken, and our father has been borne to
that land from which no traveller returns,—
Now that he is gone, how every word of
kindness, is remembered with fondness.
We remember, too, how happy his laugh
used to ring out, as seated around the sup
per-table, he would relate some amusing
anecdote. But it pleased our Father who is
in heaven, to release his spirit from its house
of clay, and take it to his eternal home.—
The last enemy, which is Death, came with
his scythe in his hand, and hard and heart
rending was the struggle between them.—
But death was the strongest, and in a few
short hours, those sparkling eyes that ever
looked on us with delight, were closed for
ever: those hands, which had ever clasped
our own with such warmth and affection,
were cold and stiff; and that heart that had
loved us so fondly from earliest infancy, was
pulseless and stilled in death. We buried
him near our own Forest Home. As I stood
by the grave, and heard the frozen clods fall
on his coffin, Iliought what sorrow can be
greater than this ! Now he sleeps on the
cold. hill-top, where the January wind howls
and. shrieks among the branches of the state
ly oak that stands near by, as if to protect
that sacred spot from the wild freaks of the
too rough winter's blast. "Home, be it over
so homely." But oh I how sad to know we
have a home without a father!

Some misconception exists in respect to
the character of the suffering now prevailing
through certain counties of the Lower Penin
sular. These sufferings are not novel in
their character, but are more aggravated in
degree than usual. They are the usual pri=
vation, incident to the condition of border
emigrants, who take the lead in the settle
ment of new regions.
In what are now the richer counties of
Michigan, and those most and best cultiva
ted, the felling of primeval forests, and the
first breaking of the tough, unpromising,
willow-bound soil, was done by men whose
daily fare was coarse and scanty.
Many a "fallow" has been chopped or
" girded," grubbed and "sprouted down,"
dragged and seeded, by men whose stom
achs actually yearned for the seed-wheat
which their hands scattered upon the soil
and who returned to their shanty at night to
sit in silence around a board, furnished with
a corn bread crust, and a glass of water.—
Happy indeed was the family which possess
ed a few potatoes, and rare and unusual-as
they were happy.
As for pork, it came at a high cost, and
heavy expense for transportation from Ohio,
and rusty, hard, and rancid as it was, was
far out of the " settler's reach." Thus was
Michigan settled, and during the seven suc
ceeding years, from 1837, saw these suffer
ings monthly during all seasons of the year,
throughout what are now the richest and
most productive counties of Lapeer, Shiwas
see, Genesee, and Saginaw.
These sufferings reached an unendurable
degree in 1842 and '3 when an unprece
winter, both for duration and se
verity, and a dry summer, seemed to drive
the inhabitants to the very verge of destitu
tion. Cattle, hogs and sheep died by thou
sands, hundreds of families were without
animal food for months, a cup of tea; except
as made from the sassafras, was unknown,
and that tribute of thanks, to the Divine
Giver, for " daily bread," was no empty cere
monial, when the "daily bread" was present
to be eaten.
These are fierce trials which the pioneers
of settlement are condemned to endure.—
This year these usual privations are en
hanced by a series of disasters, almost un
precedented. The prevailing fires of 1856,
the heavy August frost, which cut off corn
and buckwheat, and nearly ruined potatoes,
the miserable crop of other vegetables, and
a bitter winter, have combined to depress
the standard of life to a point of absolute
The worst has not come. The cattle can
begin to live, it is true, and, the milk will
help out the faro of the poor children, but a
large portion' of the cows are dead, and it
will be two months before the ground will
yield anything upon which human beings
can rely for support. Let those who reap
the rich fruits remember the pangs of the
Riot at Washington City.
Six Persons Killed and nearly Thirty Wound-
WAsniNcmox, June-l.—There were seri
ous disturbances at several of the voting
places to-day.. The Mayor obtained from
the President an order to call out two com
panies of Marines—havin& had stated to
him, upon the representation of creditable
citizens, that a band of lawless persons—
most of them non-residents—had attacked
one of the polls at which the annual election
was in progress, and after maiming twenty
good and peaceable citizens, had dispersed
the Commissioners of Elections and Threaten
ed further violence in any attempt to carry
on the election.
The Mayor directed the Marines to proced
to the Northern Liberties whither the rioters
had conveyed a swivel. He then command
ed thorn to disperse, informing them that the
troops were there solely to preserve peace.—
This order they tauntingly disregarded, when
the swivel was wrested from its possessors.—
One Marine was shot.
The most fearful alarm prevailed. Fre
quent shots were being fired by the rioters.
The Marines returned the fire and it was
soon discovered that five or six persons were
killed, and. twice as many wounded. The
large portion of them were innocent, as far
as can be ascertained. The verbal accounts
of the particulars are extremely contradic
The city was thrown into a fever of ex
citement. The occurrence is everywhere dis
cussed. The Marines were still in reserve
at the City Hall.
- A. Peep at the Comet.
By the assistance of C. W. Tuttle, Esq.,
late assistant of the Astronomical Observa
tory of Harvard University, now resident in
this city, we were able to see this comet on
Friday last with Mr. Greenough's achromatic
telescope, notwithstanding the brilliancy of
the full moon and the strong twilight pre
vailing at the time. It was more satisfacto
rily seen on Saturday night with the same
instrument. At that time it was on the con
fines of the circumpolar constellation Camel
leopard, near Ursa Major. It exhibited a
round, nebulous mass of light, slightly con
centrated, of about two minutes of arc in di
ameter. Its excessive faintness on both oc
casions was owing to the united effects of
the full moon and strong twilight. There
being no known star within the reach of the
annular micrometer, its position could only
approximately be determined.
The elements of this comet resemble those
of the comets of 1532 and 1661, and if they
are identical, then this comet has continued
to revolve around the sun once in every ten
years since, unseen by human eye till the
25th of February, 1846, when it was discov
ered by Brorson. The dimensions of its
orbit are now well ascertained. Its aphelion
is beyond the orbit of Jupiter by more than
thirty-six millions of miles. At its perihe
lion it was just within the orbit of Venus.—
The comet's geocentric motion, at this time,
is mostly in right ascension, being upward
of fifteen minutes of time daily from West to
East. On the 23d instant it will near the
bright star Beta Urste Majoris. It was near
est the earth on the Bth instant, being then
about twenty millions of miles distant. It
is now, receding from us, and will not be
visible to the naked eye during its present
apparition. This is the comet the Euro
peans announced would strike the earth in
June. But in America it has been con
founded with the great comet of 1556, which
has not yet appeared.—Newburyport Herald.

Arrest of a Supposed Mtrderek,
The Harrisburg Telegraph. of Wednesday
afternoon, says :
A man by the name of William Williams
was brought to town this morning, in charge
of Officer Nolen, of Wisconisco, having been
committed by Justice Ferree, of the same
township, on suspicion of the murder of
Daniel Henrick, at Bear Gap, on or about
the 3d of this month. Williams is a machin
ist, who has been employed in that vicinity
for some time, and always been regarded as
a suspicious character. The body of the
murdered man was found a few day ago, in
a private path leading to the coal mines, and
upon an investiption, two holes were found
in his body, which were examined by a phy
sician, and both found to have been made by
gravel stones shot from a rifle.
. A Coroner's inquest being held, a verdict
was given in accordance with the above
facts. When discovered, the body was lying
in a secluded part of the path, and looked as
if he had fallen asleep there, which the dis
coverers supposed,. until they approached
nearer. Suspicion was at once cast upon
Williams, from the fact of his having been
last seen with Henrick in that neighborhood,
and on further investigation a watch was ob
tained from him, known to have belonged to
the deceased, and of which he could not give
a satisfactory account of how he received it.
Further evidence was brought against him,
from the fact that he had borrowed a gun
and gone into the woods with him, where he
acknowledged that he had fired it several
times. We learn that other evidence can
also be produced, showing clearly that he is
guilty of the murder.
SLANDER AND SUICIDE.-A correspondent
writing from Newport, Me., under date of
May 20, furnishes the following particulars of
the sad death of a young lady:
"Miss Mary Martin, a very pretty and in
telligent young lady, of about 20 years of age
committed suicide by drowning herself in the
stream at Detroit, the town adjoining this.—
She invited a young lady friend to walk with
her, and seating herself upon a log near the
stream, she told her friend that she was
about to drown herself, and the reason for so
doing. She took off all her jewelry and gave
it to the young lady, saying "I want you to
have these." In a few moments after her
friend persuaded her to return to the 'house,
telling her that they would come down in the
afternoon. They bad proceeded only about
five or six rods, when Miss Martin caught
hold of her friend and dragged her towards
the stream a rod or two, but suddenly releas
ing her hold, she ran and jumped in. Her
friend gave the alarm, and a brother of Miss
Martin came to her relief, but too late—life
was extinct when her body was taken out.—
The cause for this melancholysuicide was
slander. During the past winter stories
have been circulated to injure her character.
She protested her innocence, and but a few
weeks before, while walking near the place
where she was drowned, with the young man
to whom she was engaged, she said (referring
to her troubles) "If I thought there was no
happier days in store for me, I would jump
in and drown myself." Miss Martin was a
very pretty, modest, and highly respectable
young lady, and her untimely death is deep
ly regretted.—Boston Traveller.
DEED SCOTT.—The real, original Dred was
the lion of the Court House on Saturday
morning. About ten o'clock he made his ap
pearance on the steps fronting on Fourth
street. He was soon recognized and surroun
ded by about a score of ]awyers, all congrat
ulating him on his enviable notoriety. Some
said he was the most celebrated character of
the present day—that he caused a greater
stir in the United States than Lafayette him
self, and advised him to go off forthwith to
Boston, exhibit himself there, andfrom thence
to London, but to be sure, before he left for
England, to get an introduction from Mrs.
Stowe to the Duchess of Sutherland, and that
doubtless his fortune would be made. Oth
ers advised him to join the Black Republi
cans, and stump it through the State for Ma
jor Rollins during the ensuing canvass, while
some others advised him to join the church.
"No, massa," said Dred, "me not go to Bos
ton, nor to England, nor to de stump neider ;
me stay in St. Louis wid massa Labaum."—
Dred is a small, pleasant looking negro, be

TnO INVALIDS.—Dr. Hardman,
, Anarytical Physician.—Physician for Diseases of the
ugs, Throat and bleart—Forinerly Physician to the
CINCINNATI MARINE HOSPITAL,
Also to Invalids Retreat, Author of "Letters to Invalids,"
IS COMING! Soo following Curd.
JUNE AND JULY APPOINTMENTS
DR. HARDMAN, Physician for the
disease of the Lungs, (formerly Physician to Cincin
nati Marine Hospital,) will in attendanco at his rooms
as follows :
Huntingdon, "Jackson's Hotel," Wednesday, July 1.
Lewistown, "National Hotel," " 2.
Mifflin, "Patterson House," 4C 8 .
Hollidaysburg, June 30.

Greensburg, " 25.
Pittsberg, June 19 & 24.
Dr. Hardman treats Consumption, Bronchitis,Asthma,
Larryngittis and ail diseases of the throat anlungs, by
Medical Inhalation, lately - used in the Bromton 'Hospital,
London. The great point in the treatment of all human
maladies, is to get at the disease in the direct manner.—
All medicines are estimated by their action upon the organ
requiring relief. This is the important fact upon which
Inhalation is based. If the stomach is diseased we take
medicine directly into the stomach. If the lungs are die
eased, breathe or inhale medicated vapors directly into
the lungs. Medicines are antidotes to disease and should
be applied to the very seat of disease. Inhalatiou is the
application of this principle to the treatment of the lungs,
for it gives us direct access to those intricate air cells, and
tubes which lie out of reach of every other means of ad
ministering medicines. The reason that Consumption,
and other diseases of the lungs, have heretofore.resisted
all treatment has been because they have never been ap
proached in a direct manner by medicine. They were in
tended to act upon the lungs, and yet were applied to the
stomach. Their action was intended to be local, and yet,
they wore so administered that they should only act con
stitutionally, expending their immediate and principal ac
tion upon the unoffending stomach, whilst the foul ulcers
within the lungs were unmolested. Inhalation brings
the medicine in direct contact with the disease without
the disadvantage of any violent action. Its application is
so simple, that it can be employed by the youngest infant
or &eldest invalid. It does not derange the stomach, or In
terfere in the least degree with the strength, comfort, or
business of the patient.
Other Pis - eases Treated.—ln relation to the following dis
eases, either when complicated 'with lung affections or ex
isting alone, also Invite consultation, I usually dad them
Prolapsus and all other forms of Female Complaints, Ir
regularities and Weakness.
Palpitation and all other forms of heart Disease, Liver
Complaints, Dyspepsia, and all other diseases of stomach
and bowels, &c.
All diseases of the eye and ear. Neuralgia, Epilepsy,
and all forms of nervous disease.
