W hen. the careful, observant, and intelli
gent agriculturist sees any particular district
in which .vegetation naturally thrives or
dwindles, it becomes a matter of vital im
portance with him to ascertain the cause of
such fertility or sterility.
With a knowledge of agricultural chemis
try, or chemistry as applied to agriculture
in the cultivation of the soil, ho would at
once comprehend the why, and ho would be
enabled to meliorate the condition of soils
upon rational principles, with certain suc
Many who are engaged in agricultural
pursuits, particularly in England, as well as
In some other portiohs of Europe, have em
braced its study, arid by obtaining a sound
knowledge of its rudiments or fundamental
principles have been ....bleu to make their
lands more productive than they were in
their normal original or condition:
With such knowledge, the farmer could
determine the average quantity of Water ab
sorbed and retained by the soil under ordi
nary vicissitudes of the atmosphere; id est,
the exact proportions of sand, clay, calcare
ous compounds, organic and other matters,
that it contains ; and could frequently com
pose a soil equally fertile with that naturally
so ; or he could make a naturally good soil
more productive by the judicious and well
dined application of various organic and in
organ-lie matters as manures.
In popular language, the solid parts of the
globe are called earths, as for example, lime,
clay, and magnesia ; which are in fact com
pounds of oxygen, with the metals calcium,
silicium, aluminum, and magnesium ; they
are the rusts or inetalic oxides of these met
als, :Ind their composition is, say of 1000
parts :
Lime has of Oxygen 500, of calcium 714-1000.
Sand or silicia has of oxygen 000, of 500-1000.
Chip or ahnunilt has of oxygen 480, of aluminum 520-1000
Magnesia has of oxygen 400, of langur/limn 000-1000.
A good general idea of the manner in
which earths, earthy and saline compounds,
organic matters, and matters, arc mingled
together to constitute a soil, may be gained
from the following statements, which sup
poses that 1000 parts by weight of a soil,
have been submitted to proximate analysis.
I,at go loose stones and hiliefons gravel, 143.
Fine ailielou9 sand 572
Aluntinotni earth
Phosphate of lime
Qarl, nah of mlignenin
Sulphato ~f lime
Oxide of Iron
Salts of sodium acid polahhionk
Vegetable and animal manure
It is by a correct knowledge of the nature
of the pure earths and their compounds and
various mixtures with organic and inorganic
matters, that the agriculturist can assist
himself materially in augmenting the pro
duce of his fields in the autumnal harvest.
Any man can cause ground to bear torn,
or any other grain, yet it will only grow in
abundance, and of the best quality, where
sown after rational principles, and his labors
are profitable and useful in proportion as
he is acquainted with the rudiments of
chemical science.
Fifty-five elements re presented to us by
nature; of these only four, viz: oxygen, nitro
gen, carbon, and hydrogen, or the ultimate
elements of the atmosphere, aro employed
in the elaboration of all the wonderful crea
tions of living matter. They enter into the
essential constitution of all organic pro
ductions. This discovery, one of the tri
umphs of : cionce, presents a magnificent
illustration of,' the power and goodness of
God, who created these elements, and con
trols their arrangements by definite and
unering laws, into countless forriA of beauty
and utility, for the adornment and enrich.
ing of the earth.
The Creator has given to man the power
to analyze the productions of nature, and
to ascertain the proportions of their con
stituent parts, but has denied to him the
power of synthesis. Ile may place the
elements of any substance which he has
analyzed, together, in every possible manner
that human skill can suggest, and employ
upon them the most powerful And exciting
agencies at his command, but they will
neither conbino to produce the original, nor
the slightest resemblance of any organized
body. The ability to analyze and combine
the various prciductions of nature, for the
purpose of producing greater fertility in the
earth, has beerigiven to man, but God alone
can vitalize. Mtn can use tbo means, and
the Omnipotent Creator can make them effi
cient, and does se; for He contols their ar
rangements by definite, unerring, and im
mutable laws.
Plants can grow and thrive only in places
where they are supplied with food suited to
their requirements, and enabling them to fix
themselves in such a manner as to obey those
mechanical powers by which their radicles
are kept below the surface, and their leaves
exprpsed to the free .atmosphere. As the
systems of roots, branches, and loaves aro
very different in differoLt vegetables, so they
flourish in most different soils. Those with
bulbous roots require a lighter and looser
soil than such as have fibrous roots, and
such as possess only short, fibrous radicles,
require a firmer soil than such as have taper,
extensive lateral roots.
As illustrative of the varied composition
of soils fitted for the support of different
kinds of vegetation, a good turnip soil, by
analyzation, has been found to consist of
eight parts out of nine, of silicious sand,
combined with sixty , t i liree parts of carbonate
of limo, fifteen of silicih; eleven of alumina,
three of oxide of iron, five of vegetable and
saline matter, and three of moisture.
An excellent wheat soil gave three parts
in five, of silicious sand, and the finely di
vided matter consisted of twenty-eight parts
of carbonate of lime, thirty-two of silicia,
twonty,:nino „of.. al amina,Lana
galfiE mutter and moisture.
Of these soils, that adapted to turnips is
the least, whilst that for wheat is by far thO
most coherent in texture. In all cases, the
constituent parts of a soil which give tenaci
ty and coherence of texture, aro the finely,
divided matters ; and they possess the power
of giving those qualities the highest degree
of coherence when they contain a largo pro
portion of alumina.
Vegetable or animal matters, when finely
divided, not only give coherence', but also
softness and penetrability; :but neither they,.
nor any*othor ,part of the soil, must, be in too,
groat proportion ; and a soil is UnproductiVo
if it consists entirely of impalpable matters:
No soil is fertile that contains as much as
nineteen parts out of twenty of. any of the
constituents 'that have been mentioned
above: If Water be too strongly attracted
by the earths and their compounds, it will not
be absorbed ,by the roots or plants ; if it be'
in too, great quantity, or too loosely hold,
amidst them, ittonds to injure or destroy the
fibrous parts of, the roots. Foils .which at

placently around the elegant apartment,
where wealth had done its utmost to pro
claim its possessors entitled to the first rank
in the world of fashion.
Tho room was large, and the ceiling very

of a pa i ttorn in which velvet buds seemed

of itself. The walls were frescoed, and the
design the cameos the carpet. And the lady,
who seemed but a pkrt of her surroundings,
was a handsome woman with whom Time
had dealt very daintily, and who might have
been supposed en elder sister, instead of the
mother of the line looking young man she
was now addressing.
"My. brother did not consult me in his
choice of a wife," he replied, a little bitterly,
"and I sometimes wish he had chosen one it

not quite so proad. Her expensive habits,

William sees it, but the fear of her family
keeps him from remonstrance. "She bas al

how can I deprive her of them ?' he plead
with me when 1 asked Lim if he could not
curtail his family expenses?"
"Are you suffering embarrassment in pe
cuniary matters, my son V asked the star

Mrs. Stuart hesitated a moment, and then
said :
"Why not bring your bride home to me?
there is no need of tho expense of two estab

Tho young num thought, for an instant,
and then replied :
"I will, mother, if you will promise to

"My son, you either forget to whom you

"Neither, mother I forgive me. 1 know
you are a lady always ; but the heart I bavp
won, would be as deeply pained by cold po
liteness, as another would be by open neglect"
"I will treat your wifcas a lady should be
treated in my house, arid can promise noth

'With this answer Howard Stuart was
forced to be satisfied , and• it was decided
that a suite of rooms should be fixed up fop"
the young bride, in Mrs. Stuart's residenCe,
she being a widow, and the dwelling being
her own by right of dower.
No expense was spared, and the apart
ments wore declared faultless, by ern Mrs.
Clayton, the future occupant's aunt, who
was admitted to have the most exquisite
taste of all Mrs. Stuart's fashionable friends•
The rooms were elegant, and the furniture
of the most recherche style.
And to these the fair bride came, with a
heart brimming with love and happiness.
She , was an only child, and had been loved
and potted, as such
.favored ones usually are.

had read about, and pined for its noveltrs.
Descriptions of fashionable life, as given by

home from school, Mrs. Clayton, her father's
only sister, wrote, begging for a season for
hor in Now York, where she resided, her
parents left her to decide, and her answer
was soon given.

Daisy no more—was realizing her school-girl

It was a mutual attachment, and they only
waited the consent of the parents. This was
reluctantly given, although the lover's letter
had been strongly endorsed by the most eu
logistic- epistle from Mrs. Clayton. •i The
wedding was to take place at her house, the
parents coining for the occasion. It was a
grand affair, as everything was, of which
that lady had the supervision ; and when the
parents returned to their far-away home,
they felt, that instead of gaining a son, they
had lost a daughter ; their only, and so dear.
The young wife soon learned, in her
splendid home, by an instinctive teaching,
that she was not expected to converse of her
parents, or aught that concerned them. She
had no cause to complain of her husband or
any of his family; i•.deed his great love for
her seemed to increase, rather than diminish,
and Iris lady mother was always kind and
pleasant. 'William evidently admired her,
as his brother'a wife, while his ultra fashion
able lady delighted to lead her along the new
paths she was treading; evidently giving
herself great credit for her amiability and
kindness in so doing. This wits all very
pleasant, more especially, its her aunt was
absent from the city, having accompanied
her hinband to Europe to remain set end
months. But gradually a yearning, that was
almost pain, crew. into her heart, to see the
dear old home aghin, that seemed so entirely
shut from her life ; to see her gentle mother's
smile and feel her kiss, and hear luir father's
vo i ce i n bl ess i ng once more! Even the ani
mals on the farm, seemed like absent friends
she was pining to sec. "And why should
she not see her piyents I" she asked herself,
and why were their names taboodcd by the
people by whom she was surrounded ? and
who ranked above them; only in style and
fashion. She would know I and sought the
information by timidly asking her husband
—whom she tenderly loved—to take her
home for a visit.
"Home!" he repeated, pleasantly, " are
you nut at home, darling ?"
" 13ut to my own home, to my dear father
and mother. Howard, you know where I
mean!" and the voice quivered piteously.
" Yes, Daisy, I know what you mean, hut

" But I can go alone. Please let Me do
so, and stay just a little while. I am so
hungry to see the old place again."
" It would not bo proper, love, for you to
travel so far alone; across two States I just
think! You have only been in my home
three months ; are you tired of it, or me 3''
She shook her head, but did not speak ; her
voice was to() full of tears ; and he came and
sat upon the luxurious couch, beside hoe.
"Daisy, I am about to say something that
I fear will wound you ; but it is better said
now than later. When I married you, my
friends offered but one objection, and that
was you parent's position in the social scale;
but I convinced them that you would iden
tify yourself with our family, and allow
nothing of your former life tO • artnoy or en
tangle us. Your parents aro excellent people
I nm sure I but they would be no happier to

gladly and freely render it. More, I presume
ho will not expect. I will take you . lo visit
them, for a short time, once a year, and
when you are keeping house, you can ask
them to visit us. Will that do?"
The tears were all gone now. Surprise
and indignation had dried them. She saw
that her husband was laboring under a ludic
rous mistake, either the fault of his early
teachings, or by tho misrepresentations of
other ; the former, she thought most likely,
and a little excitedly, she asked;

Howard Stuart cared nothing for politics,
and if he saw the name, never thought of it
in connection with the family of his wife.
And something of more vital consequence
to himself was transpiring, that brought a
look of care and unrest to his face, that
troubled his young wife exceedingly.
" What is it, Howard ?" she said one day,
as he came from private interview with his
mother, perturbed, and almost feverish.
"It would be. foolish, Daisy, to trouble
you with business matters ; especially, when
they are as uesperate as these are."

I Want all the thanks."
After weeks of newspaper squabbling
"Dr. Henry Denton, a gentleman and a
scholar, and one of the most influential men
in,the State, was elected to the gubernato
rial chair, by an overwhelming majority."
Thus the party organ announced the fact,
with its record of full returns; and this was
the paper received by the happy daughter.
Her mother had kept her fully posted, from
the time—of the nomination ; and she had
thought, if be we.- successful, she would
enjoy her triuMpli, by telling the important
news before them all. Bu t when her wish
was gratified, her woman's heart was true

only, could she take any pleasure in telling
"Are you a Cinderella?" he asked, when
he fully understood the matter. "If I am,
you are my prince," she replied, laughing
though her eyes were moist with happy
tears; "and you will love me, always, and

who have only me to love, in all the world."

sought his mother's apartmow.
Mother, allow me to •introduce my wife,
only daughter of Gov. Gunton...
The lady entered into the spirit of the
joke without comprehending it, and bowing,
iu her own stately way, said :
"I am very happy to claim you as one of
my family; and think my sou fortunate in
'possessing so good a wife."
•'But mother, congranlat•• her I her father

The father was in no haste for a visit
from his son-in-law; hut Daisy—aided by
her mother, who eould respect any one her
daughter loved—tunnaged, with woman's
tact, to bring it about; and it would have
taken a harder man than her father, to
fuse the concessions the mortified young
man was eager to make.
"I have but one cause of complaint against
him," he said to his daughter, "and that is
his goading me on, until I suffered myself
to ho dragged from the old farm to this pub

soon pass away, and I shall feel like a boy

not finished.
The Easton Star of Tuesday relates the fol-,
lowing extraordinary military exploit upon
the authority of a traveler :
A short time ago there was raised a very
handsome uniform military company in one
of the towns in Worcester
,county. Some
tunc - :after - thoConipany' had become quite
familiar with the drill, an oyster pungy from
New York anchored in the waters of Wor
cester, and commenced catching oysters con
trary to the laws of Maryland. The fact
comimr,to the notice of the Sheriff, he forth
with went to -work to capture the pungy.
To "make , assurance doublx sure," he be
thought him that the now military company
would be the best posse comitatus" ho could
summon ; accordingly the reilitiirk was or
dered out, in full uniform, properly officered
and equipped, with "guns allotted" ready for
action. Arriving at the shore, opposite the
pungy,,it.was decided to put the military in
ambush until the "overt act" was, committed,
to:order that there might --- bottolnistalto - az

• The military did not have to wait long be
hind, their masked battery, made of mita;
bushes, before the overt act was committed.
,The New York captain, not having the fenr
of the. Worcester Sheriff before his eyes, and
being anxious to load his pungy, vqry soon
put down, his rakes, and commenced to draw
the contraband bivalves.. This was the
signal for the military to advance to the
charge. The sheriff having given, the, wink

gentleman - ,-gave , the• - -word- 44 forward;,:•.

The besfittion:manifested by the military
encouraged the cuptnia Of the pungy to press
matters to .extrernitiesiand'cOjing to one of
his hands for a clitink - of fire, he commenced

This murderous proceeding of the savage
captain brought the military to their feet,
ready for the most desperate deeds of daring.
The moment was critical, with every advan

who straightened up, and at arm's' length
prepared to apply the match. Simultane
ously as he thrust the chunk of fire into the
end of the stove pipe the military jumped
overboard, and such a "sloshing about" and
diving was never witnessed in the waters of
Worcester. It is needless to add that, while
the military were under miter, the captain
of the pungy hoisted sail and bid farewell to
the waters of Maryland, and that since this
marvelous adventure the military aforesaid,
for behaving so gallantly, has been called the
