AGRICIJLTURE. FOR THE FARMER. As peach trees greatly exhaust the soil. it is probably the cause, in some measure of the fail. ore of crops. Cultivators would do well occasion ally, to S•emove the exhausted soil from . around the roots of the ,trees,loupplyiag its place with good earth. Coal dust from the blacksmiths torgo, and maid ashes, are a valuable omulsher of the peach tree. It is also said they are an antidote against worms which preys upon the peach at the surface of the soll, : and causes such a la- nentaide destruction of tSein Thepeach, also, at proper times, needs more pruning than any other tree, to keep it in luxuri ant growth. It has been ted, as the result of an incident tal experimencthat squash sown in the fall will survive the frosts of svinier and spring, and wil mature m earlier than ■nv which can be sown in the spring. It is worth a more satisfac tory experiment. The earliest Ballads, we know are grown in this way.. , Young trees should not be planted where the decaying old roots are, as they are the receptacle of nurnei nue worms, which seek their food in the roots of the young trees, and open the sap vessel, so that the 'sap instead of nourishing the tree, flows, to waste in the earth; and .causes the loss of the tree Deep digging is essential to the growth of young trees, in order that the rain water may ter under the roots, which otherwise would be rotted by stagnant water remaining around them. From the Farmers' Cabinet. . FOOD FOR PLANTS. Vegetable mould or earth when brought into Late Of solution furnishes food for plants, and enters into their composition and structure; *Ma rurntsti food for other plants and rinimala, and hecome animalized by the process of digestion ; consequently animals are manufactured out of vegetables by a process of which we are ignorant; and when animals die and are decomposed by the agency of heat, moisture 'and air, they are redo ced again to the elements which conititute the food of plants, and so proceed,on the same round again of producing a new generation of plants and inimals; and this rotary system has been in operation from the creation of the world to the present time, and so will continue until time is no more; the quantity of matter always remain ing the same, though its forms and combinations are constantly undergoing a change. From the Farmers' Cabinet.: LIME YOUR ORCHARDS. The effect of lime on orchards an 4 on grounds in which fruit trees are planted, is stated to be very - beneficial ; it improves their health and promotes their growth, and it ia,said to improve the quality of the fruit. The food orpasture of the tvees is Increased in quantity, and improved in quality by the application, end it is doubtless an important agent in destroying the pubs and Wornlt which are so destructive to fruit trees by the wounds which they inflict, as well on ,the tender fibres of th'e roots, as on the branchesind trunk. - The good effects of lime on apple and peach trees is preeeptible in a short time, and it be• lieved equal benefit will be derived from its ap. plicatiun, by all other kinds of fruit trees. ' Let us try it without delay. fot it is universally known that good fruit is never produced by an unhealthy tree. From the Farmers' Cabinet EXPERIMENT TO RAISE LAMBS TWICE A YEAR - PROM - rut sAms swig Having heard that the pure bred Dorcetshiie ewes wonld infallibly bring lambs twice in the same year, I purchased, for the purpose of ma king the experiment, seven ewes on the 2d De. cemlier, 1825. They were all in lamb, and by the 28th of that _month had yeaned nine lambs The first of the ewes lambed the second time on the 2d day of July, 1826, the remaining six by the 26th of that month ; they brought seven lambs. By the 14th of March, 1826, five of these ewes had lambed- 'the third time, the remaining two on the 29th day of April, and produced, at the third lam ping twelv, healthy lambs. Thus these seven ewes, in 17 months from the time of their purchase, brought and 28 lambs, which were all reared in health. and were sold, the first lambs for a guinea and a half each, and the third were sold with the ewes as couples. Besides the 28 lambs, I had a fleece of wool from each of the ewes at midsummer. NATIONAL L SILK GROWER'S CONVEN. 'PION. To the (fiends of the Salk Cullum-1i having been determined at a meeting of the, friends of the cause, held at Philadelphia on the 25th ultimo, in which the states of Pennsylvania, New Jersey, and Delaware i'vere represented, that it was im. portant for the furtherance of the intereata of tha Silk Culture, that a National Convention be held at the city of Baltimore, on the second Tuesday, the Ilth day of December nest; it is therefore respectfully suggested that the. Silk growers, and those trtendly to the introduction of this brunch of industry into stir country, take prompt meas • urea to appoint delegates to represent the several sections of oar Union in said convention. The approaching meeting of Congress will afford the ditiiens of distant stales an opportunity of being represented to that body theirby representatives in Congress, and it is therefore subniitted to the consideration of those filet-Ay to the cause in those states, to avail themselea• of the opportuni ty which will be - thets afforded of being so repre merited... • The spirit which now animates the American people, in favor of this enterprise, seems peculiuly to call for a measure of this kind, IN it is obvious that a body of practical men, coming together om the remote parts of our country, will be able by their united counsels to lay before our country men a vast body of important facts and Images. Mons, and thou enable them to proceed onward in their holy work with intelligence and zeal. Aa the time allowed for the meeting of -this CAmver.tion is short, it is earnestly requested of the friends of the measure, to go to work imme. iliately and make appointments of delegates, and it is of great moment that every section of the country should be fully represented. PUNISHMENT OF INFANTS. We have tieatises on the rights of man, of women and on almost every .right which attach es to the several social relations ; yet we have Seen nothing on the rights of infanat,• a class more needing and more di:Serving protect,ion than Soy other. The power held over them to SO oft. en and so onfeelirgly abused, that W 4 give from a foreign Journal, the following instance of its criminal exercise,in hope that it may operate u a caution and defer the infliction of punishment which may, by the most distaot possibility, in volve consequences that no regrets cab repair, not atonement expiate. - "The Conycnt de St. Clair, at bombes hmeaui has lately been the theatre of • catastrophe which has plunged a htgly respectable, family into the deepest grief by the . loss of a beloved child, and created a deep Sympathy among the inhabitants of that part of the country—as much, indeed, from the melancholy nature of the cir cumlitance itself as, from the unexampled man ner in which it took place. Monsieur and Mad ame B— bad placed this'll' only child, 11 beauti ful girl of ten years of age, ib the abate men tioned convent, conducted by Urauline onus, du I ring itereral years,' and enjoying a high repute lion as an establishment for iqunule eduriaton. "The unfortunate child, Lputse B—. it ap• pears. had incurreo the punishment of the cachoi, or prison—the usual Diode tir correcii:in stippled in French schoo;‘, and wive in consequence shut up in the place used for that purpose. It was observed that the moment the door was, closed upon the child her screams were heightened to-a •reinarksble.degree, but no particular importance was attached to the circumstaoce, and she wig left in the cachot, situated at the•hottom of the garden, and at such a distance front the house that her cries were mendable to the initiates. About an hour after the child had been shut up, a violent knocking was heard at the outer gate of the convent, which beifig opened, a labouring man who happened to be conducting a cart a long the road, Which passes near the preuintes, presented himself, and to mauthorativekune de mended .whom they were murdering in the con vent T . adding that he had' distinctly heard the sighs and groans of a dying person proceeding from the-premises at the bosom of the garden and insisted on knowing the cause. The nuns uninednitely explained to the man the fact of the child's imprisunment and asisured him that his imagination had attached more importance to the matter then was • necessary. The man • net •erthelesu insisted upon seeing the child, and the none were ultimately compelled by his positive and determined air to accede to his request, and they had_no sooner arrived at the spot where the child was confined than the convulsive sobs and faint sighs which struck their ears excited rip: prehension. of her safety. The door was immediately opened, when a specimen of indescribable horror presented itself The unhappy child was lying on the ; ground in -it state of the most agonising convulsions, and a cat employed in tearing away the flesh from her neck and face. Every effort was bad recourse to in order to save the life of the child, but such was the nature of the wounds inflicted on the neck and face of the unhappy sufferer; that she expired three days alter the even:, in a state o! the most horitti delirium. , It is supposed that the cat, which happened to be shut Up with the child, becone in the first instance frightened by ta screams, and subsequently infuriated.

FAY.-Founded "on fact. I would have.given worlds to recall the action.—l bad nu excuse. It was a deed done with my eyes open.

Night game. Night ! At this mysteri ous period, the guilty have a foretaste of their punishment. In summer I should havelone out and walked till morning.-L- Bdt it wits 'a cheerless November night, I went to. bed. In a little while a sort of oblivion descended upon me, faintly light ed with images of the gay scene where I had spent the evening, and where I had unfortunately laid this sin uoon my soul. My imagination retained a dim sense of music and dancing, and careless voices, and flashing light, till their repeated and repeated \ impressions pained me; and over the whole mysteriously and darkly, like a cloud, or an impending danger, lay the definite conviction and shame of that act —a sane of remorse, appreheosion, guilt and and folly, from which I strove to recoil and hide myself in sleep or even death.— And in those vague movements, weltering bee ween the real and the unreal, grotesque beings, whose shapes were drawn in light upon the black air, darted around, acid made faces at me, and held a sort of devil ish revel over my torments, as I lay pow , erless on my back. Such visitations might come to a dead man in his coffin. And a power seemed whispering—" This is to commit a sin." "1 did not think Of it." And for a moment, this seemed a triumph to me, and I shouted the fact sturdily in the faces of the finds, and I called the good angels to help me, a poor, misused mortal, set upon in this fashion by a par cel of infernal devils. But a voice, after a pause, answered as if with a silent smile —You know what you did—you gratified your wish—you agreed to pay the price— you scorned consequences—you have no excuse—you are bought and sold—you are ours !" And I answered—"lt is true !" and strove to hide myself. I would have crawled into my cave ; and all the while the d.incing went on, and the music play ' ed one continual tune—and gay crowds moving and bowing around, and beautiful female faces, with radiant smiles and care less words, came and went in throngs and mastics, with a floating change and a mock ing contrast. Then 1 ' fell abruptly off a precipice—started and awoke. . I groaned aloud. The chamber was lighted by the faint beams of a night lamp, casting grotetique and giant shadows upon the wait and ceiling.
