For the present, I will interrupt my descrip
tion of natural scenery and genet-al appearance
of the country, and devote a couple of num
bers to the condition of agriculture in the
- E - o - tifli:
When I look back upon my boyhood days,
and call to mind the pleasures which rural life
has afforded me, I feel proud that it was my
fortune to guide the plow, and although,busi
nese cony for a time direct otherwise, yet the
fondest desire of my heart is, that my declin
ing years may bo spent amongst 'those scenes
which have so much delighted the spring time
of my existence. But to my task.
Thitigs are generally interesting in propor
tion to the pleasure or advantage which they
afford, and as I observed but few improve
ments upon the modes of tillage which are
adopted in Pennsylvania, I am fearful that I
will liot.bc able to make any important sug
In the proauction of tobacco, rice and cot
ton the southern States have the advantage of
a climate and soil suitable to their growth,
but ‘‘betbur, even in these indigenous produc
Lions, they understand the most approved
modes of cultivation is a subject which, will
rdinit.Of discussion, but one upon which I tun
not suffioiently infortned to give hn opinion.
The agriculture of the northern parts of
Maryland is similar to that of Pennsylvania,
and plantations are freqhently to be seen which
compare very favorably . with the farms of
Cumberland valley, but one isetriick with the
difierence which is even there exhibited. It
appears necessary, in order to preserve the
fertility of the soil, that it be worked by' the
hands of freemen. That this obseriation is
true, a glance at the condition of different
countries, in which this institution' has existed,
clearly demonstrates.

In the middle portions of the State, the
northern and southern systems comminglr.
Wheat, tobacco, and corn aro the staple pro
ductions, and as wheat or tobacco griming
prepondertites the appearance of the - country
changes. The Stitt observation a Pennsylrit-
Dian makes is the ;smut_ of barns.., I 'doubt
whether there is a barn south of
more, at least I have not had the pleasure of
seeing any. It is amusing to hear the objec
tions which are gravely urged against the ad
vantages of worm shelters for cattle, and the
collecting of a whole crop into one pine.
Saving of latior Ss not so mu - oh tut object with
them as with us. A shed to protect the hor
ses from the inclemency ofwinter, is all which
they desire, whilst the cattle are continually
exposed to the' rigor of the storms. Sonipclf
the finest cattle which I have ever seen, were
in Montgomery county, but I sh'ould think
that from the exposure to which they are sub
j elated, t_ wo ul &raga' re.n_larga_pcirtion_of_ the.
summer for them to regain the beauty which
they exhibit in the fall 9f the year.
Some of the farmers have threshing floors,
but most of the grain is threshed in the open
air, which renders it a hazrirdous and tedious
operation. Habit is a second nature. When
people become accustomed to' nay course of
•life they aro loath to change it. It wo-were
compelled to expose our crops to the changes
of the weather, and especially to interruptioris
from showers in the middle of a day's thresh
ing, we would consider It a great inconvenienoo
- to'our; farming operations. Why it Is that
they are contented to plod on in this manner
I cannot say, unless it be from respect and
veneration for Ohs .customs of their fathers..
" Although respect for the memory
t of other
days tie 'a laudable trait of character; yet
when excessive it becomes injurious. If our
ancestors winnowed their grain by taking a'd
vantago of the wind, that Is no reason' why we
ehotild refuse to make use of the improvements

By way of apology, we—that is I, Lem.

so much' so, indeed, that in order to commune
with you all. I avail myself of the fair columns
of our Herald! Now you would d flee con
sider me selfish and presuming, and that just•
ly too, if, after our chat, I Was net assured
that you would find the benevolent and inter
ested in your welfare. An ancient philoso
pher bee said, very truthfully, that
: the pos
session of vast treasures can make a man hap
py only in so far as he expends them for the
benefit of his fellow men) and so I have often
thought that the intelligent of all eommuni
ties would much increase their own happiness,
if they would bestow upon their neighbors
some of the fruits of their wisdom and experi•
ence. It is a sad thing.—is it not 7—that one
must have gold to obtain that which is most
essential ttiliying well and happily. I mean
wholesome 'newel. Oh ! had I the pen-of
many of our townsmen, hoW Nillingly would I
point out to-you in propei and powerful rens
onieg he rationale' of life. _ But we will not
war with fate. .
In the first place, however, I would have you
know.that lam entirely opposed to the Woman's
Itigibts Movement! I consider, that you wo-.
men have all the rights you require for your
happiness: among which I may poi t out the
following :-the right,' which many f your sox
have not enjoyed, to live marr'e or single; for
which latter, I hope that noon of you with
whom I chat; will ever stiffly contend; and the
right of exorcising your own reason sod °bole%
Their:, ought you especially to regard; for
pOn'theii right exercise, doeh indeed your fu
ture happiness or misery depend. It would
be useless to attempt to set before you ell the
occasions in which they are called into action.

enough!—which, we must confess, more
mately concerns -us: How many of you, my
fair readers, instead of using your reason
and choice right, pander thim to a sordid de
sire of selfagrandizefflent? All merged in tho
wring the dulcet strains, Which the throbs .
of pure love pour over your souls. A decep_
tivo glare passes over your sensibilities,—en
tirely drowns the light of reason, and thugs a
prestige of glory over the will I This idea of
selling yourselveii I acknowledge you have got
from the men; and their total inability to bear
the weight of misery which ensues, shci'uld es
pecially teach you how terrible is the retribu
tion! 'God`' gave you not an existence, whose
happiness, at yOur wilt, you could barter
way! You know it is unnatural—hende.its aw

But there is another phase. Sometimes
When you would li.ten`to the mire and sacred
monitions of yOtir hearts, your parents cher
ishing the most false and unnatural ideas res
pecting the way of happiness, or filled with a
sordid ambitiiin to elevate you, and, more fre-'
quently, themselves, into a higher social
sphere, attempt' to compel you into their
views and to asseme a relation, which you are
&ware; will render you hopelessly miserable!
This is not .- an uncommon occurrence; and

CARLISLE, 1854.. ,
Mower 6torti.
There stood in its , little green vase, on a
light ebony stand, in the window of the drati
ing room. The rich satin curtafos, with their
costly fringes, swept down on either side of it,
and around it glittered every rare and fanciful
trifle that wealth can afford tOttury, and yet
that simple rose was the fairest of them
So rare it looked—its white leaves just touch
ed with that deliciotis creamy . tinti so perfect,
he head bending as if it we're sinking' and
melting away in its own richness—when did
ever man make anything like the perfect
But thd sunlight that stroamed through the
window xevettled 4 something' fairer than the
rose. Reclining on an ottoman, in a deep re
cess, and intently engaged with, a book, lay
what seemed theliving iiiartatorpart of that
lovely flower.. The tiheelt- so pule, so spiritu
al, the face so full of high thoughts, the fair
forehead, the long, downcastlashes, and the
expression of the , beautiful Moab, so sorrow
ful, yet so subdued and sweet—it seemed like
the picture of a dream.
- Florence - Florence l' - echoed a - merry - and.
musical voice; in a sweet impatient tone.—
Turn your head, reader, and you will — see a
dark and sparkling maiden, the very model of
some little wilful elf, born of mischief and mo
tion, with a dancing eye, a foot thit scarcely
seemed to touch the carpet, and a smile so
multiplied with dimples, that it seemed a thou
sand smiles at once. -
' Come, Florence, I say,' said the little fai
ry, 'Put down that wisb, good, ay.:afloat vol
ume, and talk with a poor little mortal; -conic
desoend from your cloud, my dent.'
The fair apparition thus addressed, obeyed
and looked upAveal'ing just the eyes you ex
pected4o-see beneath such lids; eyes deep
pathetic, and rich as a strain of sad music:
.1 say, bousin,' said the layde,' I've
been thinking what you aro to do with your
pet rose when yOu go f . # New 'York , 1 ,-as, to
our great consternation, you are going to do—
you knoi It would be a sad pity. to leave it
with such a eootterbrain as I am. I do love

cure it one gratihontion. Poor Mrs. &spited°,
for example; I know she would enjoy birds and
flowers, and music es much have
seen her eye kindle as she looked at those
things in our drawing-room, and yet not one
beautiful thing can she'comniami. , Prom fle
rassity, her room, her clothing, all she, had
must be coarse and plain. You should have
seen the almost rapture that she and Mary
felt when I offered them my rove."
el:fear me, all this may be true, but I never
thought of it before. I never thought that .
these hard working people bad' any idea of
, Then why do you see so often the geranium
,or rose carefully nursed in an old cracked
tea pot, in the poorest room, or the morning
,glories planted in a box, and mndd to twine
around the window. Do not these show hoiv
every hunta`ii heart yearns after the beautiful?
You remember how Mary, our Washerwoman,
eat up a whole night, after.a hard day's work;
that she might make her first baby a pretty
little dross to be baptized in.'
'Yes, I remember, and how I laughed at
you for making such a tasty, neat little cap
far it.' •
Well,lraty, I think that the look of per
fect delight and Oatisfootion , _ with wOich the
poor woman regarded her baby in Its new
dress and eqi, was something quite worth cre
ating; I do believe she could not have thanked
me more, if I had sent her a barrel - offlour.'
Well, I never thought before of giving to
the poor anything but*hat - th - ey ,really need
ed, and I have always being willing to do that,
oould, without going _far- out of my
way.' „ .
Well, cousin, if our Heavenly Father gave
to us as we deem, give, wp should have only
coarse, shapeless s pites of provision, laying
about the world, instead, of all the beautiful
_variety_of trees,trults_and'ilowlara which now
delight tts.'
• Well, well, cousin, Istippose that you are
right, but pray have mercy on my pocm,head ;
it is too small to hold so many new ideas at
once; even go on pita way,;' and the little
lady began practising a waltzing step befoNe
the glass with great satisfaction.-
It was a very small room, and lighted by
only one windoiv. There woe no carpet on the
floor; There was a clean but coarsely covered:
bed in one corner; a cupboard, with a few,
plates and dishett in the other ; a chest of
drawers; and before the window stood a small ,
cherry stand, quite', neilt,-end indeed the only
article in the room that esemed so. 'A pole,
sickly,,, looking, woman of abbot forty, was loan•
ing back in her rocking chair, her eyes closed,
and her lips compressed as if in pain. ', She
rooked backward and forward a few moments,
pressed her hand hard upon her eyes, and then
languidly resumed the fine stitching on which
she had bocci busy since morning, The door
opened and ikslender little girl of about twelve
years of age entered, her large blue eyes dila
ted, and absolutely, radiant. with delight; as.
she held up the small_ vase with tho rose.tree
in it.

But little did Florence know, when she gave

upon her a pair of very bright eyes, pleased
and rather struck with the simplicity of the
communication, 'and how came she to give it to
you, little girl I"
, Oh, beenuee we are poor, and mother in so
sick, and we ''can .never have anything pretty,.
We used to have a garden once, and we loved
flowers so much, and Miss Florence found all
this out, and she gave us this.'
'Florence!' echoed the stranger.
Tea, Miss Florence l'etrange ; a beautiful

As the result of. this, Florence received f rorp

In 1651 a book was printed,' called the "A
natomy of the !dais." It had only 172 pagst
in it'; but the author, a pions monk, was Alf
ged to add fifteen pages to correot.the.blnor
,'derv. These tie attributes to the special in*
etigation of the "devil," to defeat the work;
and hence may have come the" use of the title
" Printer's Devil." The attempt wo. some'?
times make to correct' mistakes only to.flnd
&ether ones made, reminds us of an edition of
Paul's Epistle, in the Etheopio language, which•
was fullof errors, accounted for by the editors
as 'follows:,-"They who printed this work
could not'read, and we 'could not print,; their

Some of these blunders are the 'fruits of tie-•

Germany lost herlife by, thus meddling with
types. . She went into the office by night, and
took out the 'word "lord"in Genesis iii, 16.
where Eve made subject to her husband,
and made the verse read, `"he shall be thy
fool," instead of lie shall be thy lord." It is
said that she .was put to death for wicked
ness. It is well known that thenrintora_ofta
early edition of the Soripttires were so heavily,
fined as to be utterly ruined, for leaving' out
the word "not" from one of the TonCommn l l4-
