Important to Executors and Admin'rs.
An A t r-htting to Esecutor ami Ailnu'n
ittnit'irs. Sr.CT. 1. That the executors and ad
ministrators of every decedent shall, im
mediately after the granting of letters
tcstamcutary or of administration to them,
cause notice thereof to be given iu one
newspaper, published at or iioir the place
where such decedent resided, once a week
during at least U successive weeks, to
gether w ith their n?mes aud places of res
idence, and in every such notice, they shall
request all jiersous hav ing claims or de
mands against the estate of said decedeut,
to make known the same to them without
delay. Act 24 Feb., 15:04. Pamphlet
Law, page 70.
jarWe re-publish the above extract
from our State Laws, iii.ismueh as there
are many persons who, (doubtless from
want of kuowledgc of the legal require
ments) publish Notices of the kind indi
ted but three or four weeks, and then not
in the paper " at or near" the residence of
the decedent. The Law is explicit that
they must be published sir ircA-, and
in tlie naner nearest tho late rcsiUeuce ot
the deceased. By the requirement of this
law, all legal notices for White Peer, Kel
ly, Lewisburg, the greater part of Buffa
lo, Union and East Buffalo, should be
published in Lewisburg, in preference to
New Berlin. They ma be published in
both, if tho Executor' or Administrator
deem it advantageous to the estate.
This requirement is not unreasonable,
inasmuch as the circulation of country
newspapers is universally limited mostly
to their immediate vicinity, and there is
the place where legal notices should of
riirht be published, to accomplish their
proper object. Their publication in papers
most remote, is contrary to the law, and
betrays the interest of those who should
be aided.
We will only add, that the Lewisburg
Chronicle has the largest circulation of
any English newspaper in the county, and
is steadily increasing. ,

Mr. Editor: I am passionately fond of
circum-ambient eloquence," and abstract
seience diluted to the consistence of efful
gent fog ; and must therefore beg you will
do nie the favor to publish the following
extract, for my own satisfaction purely
nothing else. It is part of a lecture on
mental philosophy, which-1 copy from an
old book, entitled " Miscellaneous Thoughts
on Men, Manners, and Things, by Antho
ny Grumbler, of Grumbletou Hall, Es
quire." Here is the extract. I greatly
admire its lucid perspicacity, and the sub
tended force of its orbitual logie, reaching
as it docs from the pcrihcliou to the ze
nith. A. B. Z.

u.e g.au s ..em, sir.es uuuS cuu-

the sphere of its micography. Its powers
are irrefragable its unity, like that of a
sister republic, (France,) indivisible : like
that, its fulcimeut is true virtue itsapop

base may be shaken, the foundation cau
not be uprooted by the ntussitatimi of all
the ambidextrous litigarians of this glob
ular jumble of elemental matter, ludcl
ibcratcly have I always avowed, that its
latesusterous cavity would engulph all the
petty vertieulate weeds of weak-miuded-ness,
the languid ladanumity of laziness,
the blind, grovelling earth-wormediiess of
those children ot uuiance wuo still au here
to the apocryphal details of the New and
t Ud Testament ! These beauties may be
latitant, but can not be forever concealed,
for even the loxodromick mazes of inter
polatory periphrasticity, can not conceal
then, from the searcher. Even to those
who avow a taste for the attie salt of an
cient notoriety, its salsoacidity must be
evidently pungent, while its salubrity on
the mental affections is unprecedented,
and only gentle mendicants of au apo
phlegmatick nature arc requisite to a per
fect cure of the soinnolcutic stupor that
pervades its faculties wheu in ttutu uo.
The arts of stenography, lgograpby,
braebygraphy, aud of paleography, are
unequal to the expression of its praises
incommensurate with the palacious great
ness of its lustrous powers. Then, how-
can I. in my weak, unadorned, humble
language, display the impetus glare, that
implex irradiation, that divine light of
reason, which must, and will, at some fu
ture day, not far distant, prove, after
some luctation. tho incomputable latitudi-
uary mandilicutinn to the anatomical illus
tration of the Mind of Man !"

Distressing Occurrence.
Que day last week, a dispute occurred
between David Master and Henry John,
son, near Millville, about some buckweat,
growing on a piece of land in dispute be
tween said Master and Johnson, but for
which, judgment bad, at the last term of
Court, gone in favor of Masters. . Johnson
interposed when Masters went to harvest
the buckwheat, and while the two men
were scuffling, the wife of Johnson threw a
stone at his antagonist, which accidentally
hitting her husband on the head.killed him.
He was buried on Saturday last. We have
learned nothing further. It is a roost mel
ancholy casualty. The parties re highly
respectable, we are intimately acquainted
with ihem, and none can feel more sorrow
for the untoward circumstances than our
selves. (Columbia Dem.

Are Corn Cobs, good HanureT
- This question was lately put to m by a
gentleman at Jackson, North Carolina. 1
answered yes, of course ; that I consid
ered them et y valuable, Sec To this,
another man put in an objection. He cau
tioned the first person not to use ihem loo
freely. If he did, he would not make any
corn ; " because," said he, " I tried them
last season, and where I put them on thick
est, I lost all my corn."
Ah ! how do you accouut for that !"
said I.
'Oh ! easy enoouh. TAere is to much
lime in cob, it burnt up the land so that j
the growing corn a!l died.'"
So much lime in cobs !" I eiclaimed ;
Well, that is new to me. Are you ure
n) fce caose p
Oh, yes ; certainly. What else could
it be! I dou't believe much in lime, no
' Perhaps jou did not plow your cobs in
deep enough. Whit kind of land was i'.V
Well, it was good strong clay land,
and thev were plowed a deep as we
ever plow in this country. How deep
would you have plowed T"
" Ten or twelve inches 1"
44 Ten or twelve inrhes ! Well, I don't
want mom to plow my land. You'd turn
the soil all under so deep it never would
do anv ood naain."
"My liear si',1 would not only plow that
deep, but I would use the subsoil plow,
also, and then I don't think that the lime
in corn eobt would hurt your land."
" You may talk as much as you like,
but I know it was the lime in the cobs that
killed my corn ; and lime will kill any
land in this climate ; and as for a subsoil
plow, I woul dn't let you bring one on my
hirm ; and I don't believe they were ever
of any benefit lu land in the world."
What sort of plows do you use, my
friend, nnd how much team to a plow !"
Why, the common sort of plows in
this country ; and I never want any plows
on my land that one horse can't pull.
I've sten enough of your new fangled
Y'ankee plows I believe they are just
poison to the land, I do ; and as for plas
ter and guano, that you talk an much
about, I've tried both anj (hey ain't worth
a crfit ; no, nor lime either.'"
Now, I pray you to take notice ihnt this
wise man is not t nly a farmer, but he is
an overseer one who hires for high wa
ges lets himself nnd his knowledge and
skill to another; sets himself up as a com
petent teacher of the right mode ol farming,
manuring, nnd managing land ; and, as
you see, understands " agricultural client-
isty,'" about upon a par with nine tenths of
his class ; and yet this man has charge of
an estate that is probably worth seventy
or eighty thousand dollars. Hew can a
country improve when nearly all the ag
ricultural operations are conducted by just
such bigoted ignoramuses as this mm
men that ridicule the idea of learning about
farming in a book. And not only that,
but when such men as the Messrs. Burg
wyn's arc conducting their enlightened
operations right helore their eyes, and by
means of lime, turning old broom-sedge
fields into the most luxuriant clover pas
tures, they not only ridicule them because
the first crops don't pay cost,' but con
tend that lime and deep plowing will ruin
any land. How can you teach a man ag
ricultural science, that contends that ''lime
in corn cobs' killed his corn. anJ who
never reads an agricultural book or paper?

1. Mules, on a general average, live
more than twice as long as horses. They
are fit for service from three years old to
thirty. At twelve a horse has seen his
colthnod, and is going down hill, but a
mule at that age has scarcely risen out of
biscolthood, and goes on improving till he
ia twenty. Instances are recorded of mules
living sixty or seventy years, but these are
exceptions. The general rule is that ibey
average thirty.
2. Mules are never exposed to diseases
as horses are. Immense sums of money
are annually lost in the premature death of
high-spirited horses by accidents and dis
ease. 1 lie omnious tines in me cut oi
New York have not been able to sustain
their losses, nnd are beginning to use mules
as less liable by lar even to accident as well
as disease. This results from the next con
sideration, which is that
3. Mules have organs of vision and
hearing far superior to those of a horse.
Hence they seldom shear, and frighten,
and run off. A horse frightens, liecause
he imagines he sees something frightful,
but a mule, having superior discernment,
both by the rye and ear, understands ev
erything he meets, and therefore is safe.
For the same reason he is surer footed, and
hence more valuable in mountainous, re
gions, and on dangerous roads,
4. The mule is much more hardy than
the horse. A pair of these animals, owned
by a tv ighbor of mine, although small in
size, will plough more land in n week than
four horses. Their faculty ol endurance
is almost incredible.
5. Another very important fact is, that
in matter of food, a mule will live and
thrive on less than one half it takes to keep
a horse. The horses of England at this
present time, are consuming grain, which
would save the lives of thousands of British
subjects. But yet individual aimers, who
are in debt, and whose land is not improved
would find it profitable, in the course of
ten years, to have the labor of a full team,
and save one half and more of the food
necessary to keep it , might be- the
case in substituting mules for horses.

"How do vou sell peaches f asked a
young gentleman of one of ihe boys who
deal in the article on the large bridge.
"Two for a center," was the boy's polite
answer. 'Two for a cent!' txclaimrd
the gentleman, with apparent astonishment,
for the peaches were very largp. "Two
for a cent ! And he began lumoiing nooui
pets. "Two of them great peaches
for one rent V he repeated, very dehber
ately. It was evident now that his fingers
did not find what they were searching for.
'Two for a cent," he said once more, in
somewhat lower tone, and turning round
to leave the basket. "Two for a cent!
Well, by thunder ! that is cheap enough
The Post has inadvertently furnished,
by this anecdote, a very good Tariff argu
ment. The Free Traders are constantly
insisting that every man shall be allowed
to buy where he can buy cheapest. The
peaches, by the conlcssion of the querist,
were very cheap. Hut what did all that
avail, so long as he hadn't the cent? It
may be a comfortable reflection to the man
that wun's a coat that he can get it for
half the old price, if he has the money to
pay for it. But if he had no money, its
cheapness would be rather an oggravaiiori
than a comfort.
Most men in this country only get hold
of money in exchange lor their labor. It is.
therefore, more important to the laborer
that labor should be in demand at fair rales,
thn that boots, hats.coats, and beef should
be very cheap. For, with plenty of woik
at or.d prices, the laborer can afford to
pay liberally for his bread and beef. .No.
thing is chenp to a man, however much he
mny require it, if, for the want of work.he
has been unable to earn what the article
costs; while anything is cheap, which he
needs, if, from having plenty of work and
good pay, his pockets are well tilled with
hunk hills. V ree. 1 rade mav make thin"'
nominally cheap ; but when the laborer
goes to buy them, from hating been depri
ved of work by the free, trade policy, he
