You talk of the mines of Australia— t
They're wealthy in gold without doubt.
But atm I there is
_gold un - the farm, boys.

And so has the busiest mart,

1 - - THE FRUIT-GARDEN—THE GRAPE TINE.
Grapes which have been covered during
' • the winter . should not be uncovered too
• - hastily in spring; it is better to wait until all
danger, from severe frost is over than to
- expose them to the alternate freezing and
• thawing which takes place in early spring.
Accordingly as - the culture of the grape is
• betoming extended, fresh' facts in conned
'. tion with its successful management are
• ' being brought out and widely disseminated
through t . he. medium of horticultural socie
ties, grape-growers' conventions, etc.,' and .

. proceedings in the agri

- abandoned, and even the selection of ele

• . Tender varieties, which have been pro
. tected by a covering ,of some . kind . during
winter,should leuncovered before vegeta
tion commences.. If new beds or .planta
...r . 'dons are to be made; the sooner the plants
• ' • are set out the better, for after vegetation has
commenced, it , will not be ;easy to remove
them without breaking the shoots. • The

' deep the shoots surfsemetes prevented

Rhubarb, lar "ple-plant," isa very valua
ble and pholesome vegetable, and a large
bed of it should be found in'every garden.
It requires deep tillage, the deeper the bet
ter, and heavy manuring. The large roots
and leaves require plenty , of room to extend
- below and above the soil. Some persons
- trench the' soil to the depth of two feet,
when - preparing to plant rhubarb, but w
out good drainage very deep tillage is use
less. if propagated by dividing the roots,
the plants should be set out singly, and not
in threes, as is so often done. One or two
buds. is taifficleit l on. each root.
The ordinary varieties are generally planted
in drills two and a half or three feet asunder,'

TEE Quincy (Ill.) Herald, 25th inst.,
notes: "From conversation with many of
our country Mends whd are now in the city
in attendance upon the Circuit Court, we
are gratified to hear that a very hopeful feel
ing is generally entertained in regard to crop
prospects. The fall wheat is coming on fine
ly, and the favorable weather has permitted
the sowing of an unusually large breadth of
land in spring wheat, which is already up
in many places and promising well. Many
farmers have already finished seeding oats,
and farm work is generally well ahead. •
, DENTLENtAIi- writing from Richland
county, Ohio, says: "Winter wheat looks
well in this section of the country, and has
the appearance of making a splendid crop—
the-warm weather of the past week has been
very favorable to it The peach buds were
all killed in the early part of winter—but all
other kinds of fruit have the appearance of
making a good crop.
THE De Witt (Clinton county, Iowa) Ob
server, 24th inst., says : "Our - farmers are
now busily engaged putting - in their wheat.
Much of the low land, however, is too wet
to seed..k By reference to our files we see
that on, the 24th of April, 1867, we published
a similar item, which showsthatour farmers
have gone to work nearly a' month earlier
this year than they did last. 'l
Thu Sycamore (M.) 'True Republican,
25th inst„ says the farmers of that county
are busily employed in sowing their grain,
and happy in that prospect for good crops
which is so much enhanced by the opportu
nity of getting seed in the ground thus early.-
The Cairo Dernocral42sth inst., says
strawberries will ripen in the vicinity
Jonesboro about the 15th of April. A num
ber of peach orchards - were an full bloom
thereabouts on the 6th of the present
The Belmont (Ohio) Chronicle learns by
inquiry of farmers that the wheat prospects
in that county are very flattering. An un
usually large amount was sown, and it looks
better than usual at this time of the, year.
The Oskaloosa (Iowa) Herald says that
but little wheat has been put in so far in that
Professional Profits in New York.
In the matter of professional fees, the
giants of the New York bar, not to speak
of the pigmies, are as fortunate, if we may
believe report, as they are skilful. In the
Jumel will case, for instance, Mr. Martin,
who appeared for the defendant, received a
fee of $lO,OOO, while (nowt, . who gained
the snit, pocketed $50,000 as his reward.
These will cases, often involving . the labor
of weeks and even months in their prepar
ation, and requiring arguments of an inter
minable length, seem to be . peculiarly pro
fitable. The leading counsel, in the Rose
will case probably received a fee of $50,000,
and in the Parish suit, . involving . a property
of two millions, $200,000 were' paid in the
same way.. The late Daniel Lord
.raimbered ' John Jacob. Astor among
I; his clients. He drew 'up the
~will of the millionaire and was one of the
executors, - drawing as his share for the litter
service $lO,OOO. Many of the:best ,specula
tors in city property are found among the
members of this profession. Mr: J. R. Whit
ing owns" Broadway property renting for
$27,000, - and Mr. Mabiiry returns an in
come of $55,000, ' mostly' from the same
source; itis reported. - But large as these in
comes limy seem, they tare "generally the
fruit of hard and long-confinued labor. Mr.
Lord struggled for years without a sign of
success, and .at the age of 35 was on the
1 point of giving up bis profession for some
thing which would afford him aßving. It
is generally the same story of the triumph of
real, ability after long triab—Bosion Post.
