There is much more intellect in birds than
people suppose. — An - instance - of - that occurred
the other day at a slate quarry, belonging to a
Triend from whom we have the narrative. A
rus , t aware of the expansive properties
o powder, thought proper to build her nest
en a ridge of the quarry, in- the very centre of
which they were constantly blasting the rock..
At first she was very much discomposed by the
fragments flying in all directions, but still she
would not quit her chosen locality.—She soon
observed that a bell rung whenever a-train
was about to be fired, and that, at the notice,
the workmen retired to safe ositions. In a
few days when she heard the be ~ ' quitted
her exposed situation, and flew down , o where
the workmen sheltered themselves—dropping
close to their feet.—There she would remain
until, the explosion had taken place, and. then
return to kr nest. The workmen observed
this—narrated it to their employers, and it
Was told to visitors who came to view the
quarry. The visitors naturally expressed a
wiAlt to witness so curious a specimen of intel
lect ; but, as a rock could not always be blast
ed when visitors came, the. bell ,was rung.in
stead, and for a few times answered the same
purpose. The thrush flew down close to where
they 5Wa, but she perceived that she was tri
fled,'with, and it interfered with the process
of incubation g ; the consequence was that after
wards, when the bell was rung; she would
peep over the ledge to ascertain if the workmen
did retreat, and if they did not, she would re

A Western chap, who went to New York
to purchase goods, &c., Was invited to one o

verylittle, until he found that ‘ the party was

the merest accident in the world, found them
selves about said western green one, in a most
animated discourse on music, and city playing.

conclusively that one hundred years had elapsed

. Highly Interesting to Agriculturists.
A correspondent of the San Diego (Cal.)
Herald relates the following:
- Conversing the other day on the effects pro
duced by different kinds of pasture on the
quantity and color of butter, an estimable and
witty friend of ours'in San Diego, who has
lately turned his attention to rural and agri
cultural pursuits, mentioned a singular fact in
'exemplification, which occurred in a churning
of butter from a cow belonging to his mother.
In this case the butter was found to be red,
with green stripes—and was traced to the cir
cumstance of the cow haVing chewed 'up, the
day before, a piece of carpet containing those
colors. The most remarkable feature of this
incident was, that the carpet was green, with
red stripes, while the butter was red, with
green stripes.—Now, although I can readily
believe this unusual color for butter to be
caused in the manner above stated, yet I find
it very 'difficult to account for the arrangement
of the colors, in a different order from what
we find in the carpet. The only way I can ex
plain it is, by supposing that the cow in chew
ing her end, must have so ground the colors
together on her palate as accidently to have
changed them, or else the agitation of the.cream
in churning may have Mixed them up so as to
materially disarrange the whole matter and
throw it into pi. lam aware that this theory
is not perfectly satisfactory, and I shall be
giatified if any of our scientific readers will
examine this subject and throw some light
talrhe following is considered by old and
experienced farmers as a pretty sure remedy
for the "potato" rot : Select a suitable piece of
ground ; plough to the full depth of the good
soil, and, as the old farmers say, so as to "turn
up a leetle yeller dirt;" then subsoil ; manure
as highly as possible—it doesn't matter much
with what, so that it is rich and enough of it
—and, when you have done all, the rest—
plant with Indian corn.

Address of the State Central Committee.
CONCLUSION OF NO. 3
The Missouri line was never aifavorite mea
sure with the old Democratic statesmen. It
suited - a - temporary purpose, and , quieted -agi
tation for a time, but it was manifestly wrong
in principle, and legislation of; a dangerous
character, calculated 'to divide the country nto
geographical sections, and create diksenstons
and*divtsions among the States and the people.
Thomas .Tefferson once said :
•This Missouri question, by a geographical
line of division, is the most portentous one that
I have ever contemplated."
1820 he wrote to John Holmes
- "A geographical line coinciding with 'a mark
ed principle. moral, and political, once conceiv
ed and held up to the angry passions of men,
will never be obliterated.'
James Madison said :
must own that I- have always leaned to
the belief that the restriction was not within
the true sropo of the Constitution."
James Monroe said :
'The proposed restriction as to the territories
which are to be admitted into - the Union, if not
in direct violation of the Constitution, is re
pugnant to its principles."
We might siVell the list of authorities on
this'same point, from-eminent American states
men, living and dead.
It is difficult to force from the mind the be
lie,Lthat this whole subject of Slavery in the
territorimis greatly magnified,. Tito right of
a sovereign State to control this sobject is not
disputed even by abolitionists. The right to
establish or abolish the institution is admitted.,
The 'only effect that the legislation ofCongress.
can possibly have moat be confined to the ter
ritorial probation-of a State, during which time
it can exercise but a limited influence upon the
social or political affairs of the country. When
once admitted into the Union with slavery, a
State can abolish adtnitted without it;
she can establish it. Should-the people north
of 36 deg. 30 min. in Nebraska become nu
merous enough to be admitted us a free State,
they could afterwards establish the institution,
even if the Missouri line or the actof 1820 had
not been disturbed. Suppose, for example,
that -- any of the States covered by the ordinance
of 1787, were at this time to establish slavery,
where would he the remedy ? There wonid
-be---none.---11--the-people of a-territory shoal
desire to haie the institution, but perceiving
that Congress might object to their admission
into - the Union, they could forbear to establish
it until after • their admission, and then do as
they might deem best. Ilene° the wisdom of
allowing thatpower to control in the beginning,
that will most certainly, control, in the end, or
at a subsequent period.
It is not to be denied that there is a most
Violent and unwarrantable spirit evoked by
this slavery conflict, that should he discoun
tenanced by the good men of all parties. It is
one of the enigmas of human nature,. that it can
be - Come so unreasonable in sonic of its manifes
tations. Our .Anti.-Nebraska friends should
take care lest the mania of a Wild and ungov
ernable fanaticism should possess them as it
has already possessed ninny others. Tho in
flammatory and treasonable proceedings of an
abolition convention in the city of New York,
not long since, calls for the earnest Condemna
tion of every lover of our Nati_oaaLUnion.
Wendell Phillips said :
“The Union sentiment is the great vortex
which swallows up the great minds, and they
have power enongfor the time being to influ
ence the people. ' remedy for the
slave is the destruction of the government. I
challenge any man to tell . = what the Union
has done for us."
_ Wm. Lloyd Girriion proposed the following
"Resolved. That the one grand vital issue to
be made with" the slave power.is the dissolution
of the existing American Union." - •
Henry C. Wright spoke to the resolution,
and said :
"I like that resolution very much. This
country .denies God, or if it believes in God, I
do not. The Christian God the most accursed
of demons., No man's rights can be ascertain
ed by reference to a Bible, a law, or a Consti

The Hon. Edmund Quincy said that : "The

This was during the pendency of the Ne•
bra.ska and Kansas bill before Congress. At
the same time the leading Abolition_ journals
were loud in their denunciations of the bill it
self; and treasonable in their opposition to
the action of the government. Horace Greeley,
through the New York Tribune, said in refer
ence to the contemplated passage of the bill
"Better that confusion should ensue—better
that discord should reign in the National
Councils—better that Congress should break
up in wild disorder, nay, better that the capitol
itself should blaze by the torch of the incendi
ary, or fall and bury all its inmates beneath
its crumbling ruins, than that this perfidy and
wrong be finally accomplished."
There were many treasonable exhibitions
also, by the same class or men, during the re•
cent Anniversary of American Independence.
At some places the bells were tolled, as if
mourning for some great National calamity.
At Fartningham, Massachusetts, treasonable
speeches were delivered, after which Garrison,
above named, burned the Constitution of the
United States and -the Fugitive Slave Law,
amid the applause of men of as little patriot-

that they are not only wilting to be so, but
also that they have the power to be so. The
day of' wild fanaticism and' stolid bigotry on
the question of shivery has passed ll'in this

In the Legislature of 1853, Northumber land
county was represented by S. - A. 13ergstreker,
a whig,' who voted against every , thing that
had the least leaning towards a prohibitory -
law, or which was likely to bring the ,subject

such project as the most ultra Lager Beer seller
in the State could possibly be. Ile was nand

was the neighbor and personal friend of tho'
latter. In all , the - proper qualifications of
Legislator, he 'was far superior to Mr. Berg‘
