Pacta U be Remembered In Pruning.
There are important differences in the
mode of growth and bearing of the various
cultivated fruit tree?, suhjectcd to pruning
ab2 training, that every cultivator should
it lidy carefully. Every species is governed
by laws no less regular and observnhle in
this respect, than in their periods of blos
soming and maturation, and these laws
should be takeu into f 'ret account a prun
ing and every process intendt 1 to modify
the growth and productiveness of bearing
trees. Most culuvatnrs are too apt to over
look thpse ininorinnt points, and hence the
principles of pruning aie Ladly understood.
Inmcdia'e cActs alone are lop frequently
looked to. it' the head of a tree La too

neglect of it, thai produces such vast num

now cumlir the g'ound of a large portico
of our orchards and gsr.hns. At present
we can give but few hints on the subject,
by way of calling attention to '.Vse points.
The Apple, Pear, and Quince are all
similar in their motle of bearing. The fruit
buds are usually produced on spurs or short
tout shoots along the sides of the branch
es of two or more years' growth, and these
shoots or sjurs contiirjn tJ renew their
fruit buds, and bears for several years in
succession, if they enjoy the advantages of
light and air, and are not deprived of a suf
ficient supply of nutrin.cnt by rapid grow
ing por'ions ol t.ic ires above tl.cm. Uc
casionally we see fruit buds formed on the

this is rare, except in particular varieties.

October 16, 1319, will be read with inter

I a correct solution of the quadrature of the

They took her to an island, w hich we con

came that the same ' largo war canoes of

answer when Capt. Stanly asked whether,
of her own free will, (for be would do
nothing by compulsion,) she wished to re
turn to Sidney, where her parents were
w hen she left. She said" I am a Chris

could not express, her leelings choked her,
and her tongue refused its office. She
had forgotten much of her own language,

to mention that every kindness and consid

that she goes with us to Sidney. She told
the three blacks (one her rescuer from

Mr. Editor : Hitherto, it has been almost
impossible for any one who wished to visit
Lewisburg, on pleasure or business, to get
to or from the Canal.wilhout much trouble,
expense, or inconvenience. This has been
a standing reproach against your Borough,
of which Milton and Williamsport have
rightly availed themselves, not only in
money, but in a good name for enterprise
and hospitality. I am happy to learn, by
experience, that this reproach is about to
be removed. 1 now find an omnibus
ready to convey passengers from town to
the Cross-Cut, at 9 every evening, (except
Sundays) in time for the down Packet ;
and at 4 in the morning, it takes over
passengers in time for the up Packet, and
also conveys passengers to town. The
passengers are delivered at any part of tho
town for 25 cts. only. Nor is this the
only convenience. Your old friend Mr.
Wm. Porter, has taken the Warehouse and
Dwelling at the Crossci't, where be is pre
pared to entertain passengers who may
have occasion to wait, with lodging and
f'Mid, iu comfortable style and at reasonable
charges. As the packet becomes more
punctual, fewer delays will occur. As it
is, all corning up or going down may be
sure of good treatment by Mr. Porter at
his house or store, and of safe carriage to
and from town by Mr. Sterner, at little
trouble or expense. These facts should be
made known for the public good ; and those
gentlemen should be supported and encou

Dreadful Steamboat Disaster-Loss of
The steamer Bt-lle of the West, on her
w ay 'from Cincinnati to St. Louis, with a
large number of passengers, was destroyed
by fire on the night of the 23d ult., one
mile below Warsaw, Ky., and it is sup
posed th it over one hundred persons per
ished ! An eye witness thus describes the
appalling scene :
"The fire was discovered about 12
o'clock in the hold, and she was immediate
ly run ashore. She was then made fast
and the stage planks run out. Up to this
moment the flumes had not burst forth.
The after-hi!c?f was then raised for the
purpose of getting water into the hold, but
so rapid was the rush of flames, that all
efforts to quell them were of no avail, and
the entire boat became a blazing ruin. The
total number of passengers is estimated at
four hucdred, among whom were two com
panies of California emigrants, and about
thirty families removing westward. It is
ascertained from the register that over sixty
souls perished, and probably as many r.iore
have been lost whose names were not en
rolled. Such was the progress of the fire,
that before the passengers could get out of
the state-rooms all communication between
the after cabin and the forward part of the
boat was cut off, and all either were com
pelled to jump overboard or perish in the
flames. At the time the deck fell
in a lady and gentleman, with a child in
Iii arms, were standing between the chim
neys. A largo number of horses and
cattle were burnt to death. The scene,
taken altogether, is represented as having

Another Steamboat Disaster.
On the 21st of April, the steamboat An

10 steerage and 20 cabin passengers.
She took from the train 34 passengers,
which, including her crew of 20, made in
all 64 souls on board. On Sunday morn
ing, when nearly opposite Vermillion, both
boilers blew up, making a complete wreck
of the boat, and hurrying from thirty-five
to forty hvman tovh into eternity.
The case of Mr. Archer Brackney, one
of the passengers on board the steamer,
at the time of the explosion, is of thrilling
interest. He was on his way from Lafay
ette, la., to Philadelphia, with the remains
of his wife and ehi'd, rcc.t'ly decease!).
Both of the corpses were enclosed in one
box. Whciv explosion took place he suc

until at last his little boy, two years old,

luctantly parted with the body, and turned
his attention to the rescue of the remaining
