We bad hopes that rose as proudly
A each sculptured marble sLrino;
And our prophets spake qs Ludlj
At their oracles divine.
"Grand resolves of giant daring,
- Socb as Titans breathed of old,
Brilliant ai m their front upreiring,
Liks alcrop'o roofed with gold.
Sools of fire, like columns pointing,
Flame-like upwards to the skies;
Iorious brows which God's annotation
Consecrated allar-wiso.
Stainless heart, like temples olden.
None but priests hath ever trod;
Hands as pure as wero tho golden
Slaves which bore the ark of God.
Oh, they built up radiant visions.
Like an iris after rain;
How all Paradise traditions
Might be made to live agiiti.
Of humanity's sad story..
How their hand should turn the pag,
And tho ancient primal glory,
Fling upon this letter ii fa
llow with God like aspirations,
Up the soul of man would climb,
Till the fallen, enslaved nations
Trcd in rhythmic march sublime;
Reaching heights the people knew not.
Till their prophet .Leaders led
flat hod in light that niorta Is view not,
While the spirit lilc lies dead.
How tho palid sons of Labor,
The)' should toil nnd.toil to raise,
Till a glory, like a Tabor,
Once again 6h(uld meet earth's gaze.
How the poor, no longer keeping
Count of Iifo alone by groans.
With tho strong cry of their werp'ng.
Start tho angels on their thrones.
Ah, that vixion's bright ideal,
Must it fade and perish thui?
Must its fall alone bo real?
Are its ruins trcd Ly us?
Ah, they dicmcd an El Dorado,
Given not to mortal sight:
Yet the soul, that walk in shadow,
Still bend forward to its light.
Earnest dreamers, sooth we Llama not
If ye failed to reach the goal
If the glorious Ileal came not
At the strong prayer of our soul.
By tho path ye've trod to duty.
Blessings yet toman may How,
- Though the proud und stately beauty.
Of your structure liclh tow.

The Past, the Present, and the Future.
"Here the free spirit of mankind, at !englh,
Throws it last fellcts off; nd who shall place
A limit on the giant's unchained strength.
Or cast his swiftness in the forward race?
Far. like the cornel's way through infinite space,
Stretches the long untravelied path of light
Into the depth of ages; we may trace
Distant lh? brightening glory of its flight.
Till the receding rays are lost to human sight."
fcFIt is well, occasionally, not only for
the statesman, but the philanthropist, to
glance retrospectively at the history of the
American Union, to ponder upon the
present, and to speculate as to the ja
ture. 1 her e are, moreover, seasons
at which such a policy is particularly op
portune. Nations, like individuals, some
times bound forward, as if under the in
fluence of some extraordinary impulse.
Their fortunes undergo a rapid change in
a short period of time. Circumstances
and an overruling Providence control their
destinies, and either make or mar at plea
sure. The progress of our own country
has been truly extriordinary. It is the
modern wonder among civilized States.
The seed of emigration and colonization
that was planted but a few years back,
comparatively speaking, has already be
come a mighty and majestic tree, the
growth of which is nevertheless only in its
infancy. The pas', in connexion with
our progress, lias been marvellous. Our
present poskion is well calculated to star
tle and astound all thoughtful and contem
plitive mind.3. And yet the wonders that
have been realized, areas nothing com
pared with the gorgeous visions of the fu
ture isions well calculated to excite and
bewilder the vivid imigination. The
mission of this Republic is indeed momen
tous. The part we are called upon to
perform, is one of the highest character,
not only in a political but a social sense
not only as concerns the existing, but
future generations not only as our imme
diate people are affected but with reference
to the whole family of man. Already our
example has exercised a powerful influ
ence upon the nations of the old wrorld.
1 he masses have been roused to a due
sense of their necessities and their rights.
Monarchs have been compelled to recog
nize and respect the power and comforts
of thir subjects, and the liberal principle
is sti 1 at work, r ranee is now ens-aeed
in a great experiment, is endeavoring to
tread in the footsteps of the model Repub
lic of the New World. The prayer of
every friend of liberty is with her. Her
course is wctched with hope and with fear

are topics well calculated to engage the at

mind and heart. 1 h

ac:ivity and enterprise. Our young men'
are moving forward by tnousuads, to bind
the two extremities ol our vast territory by
ers tiiat a lew vears aro were deemed al
most impassable, and which seemed to
form a wall of sep iration between us and
the Pacific. A lit !e longer, and the jour

ed, exciting discoveries will be made, and
the tide of human beings will roll on in an
almost ceaseless current to the golden
eriile West. In 1810, the official census
gave our population as a little more than
seventeen millions! The present estimate
is, that it is more than twenty-one and a
nali millions beinrr an increase of four and
a half millions in nine years! This is in
deed a wonderful result. Estimating the
future increase at thirty-three and a half
per cent., in less than a century from the

The great error with to many of our lead
ing men is, that their views and objects
are too temporary, too selfish, and too
limited, for the great stage upon which
they have been called to figure. One of
our national faults is rashness, excitability,
a disposition to yield to tlie impulses of
the hour. We do not sufficiently ponder
! upon causes and eflects do not recognize
our cxiranrumary position as a nation, ann
adapt our government and legislation to
the great and cdmprehensivelevelope

directed their footsteps towards the shores

adventurous, the enterprising spirit of our
people! The result cannot be but-extraordinary.
It is certain that the Atlantic

merce, by trade, by social afinity, than
the wildest of our theorists could have im
agined a few years since. The subject is
one suggestive of high thoughts of far
reaching undertakings., A century ago,
and what were we as a nation- a century

English sometime since resolved uoon the
overthrow of the corn laws, it Kas not un
til now been by any means ce?tain that
they would be completely abolished. A
part from the good that will flow to the
English people themselves from'. this wise
resolution, it is to be rejoiced at becausp
of the efiect it must have on the wlm
civilized world. England's infltenc in
matters of commerce and manuf:ctures is
still of the first class, though inl a few
years more it must come to be slcond to
that of tho United States; and perhaps
there never was a more fortunate Urn for
the cause of liberal principles thanthefact
that Great Britain, while ranking j as the
first of commercial powers, was compelled
to throw aside the restrictive system of
which she had been so long the greatest
champion among the nations. In ipho'd
ding that system, for a period of lalmost
two centuries, dating from the timtj of the
passage of the Navigation Act, England
was compelled to wage many long, costly,
and in some instances disastrous wats, and
to incur a debt that weighs upon her en
ergies, and which must, for a long Uime,
prevent her from playing the part uf an
effective upholder of liberal ideas. 1 Her
position has been happily compared, by
one of her own sons, to that of an aged

IT.ivin-Tihu nreseut vear. notwithstanding
tho drought, succeeded in growing and preser.
ving a fine and healthy crop of potatoes. I have
decided to furnith an account of tho circum
stances under which they were produced, and
my opinion relative thcrclo, lor insertion in
your journal, should you deem it worthy of a
plane therein
About the first of May, I planted fivo acres
in the following manner: The soil was a dry,
micaceous, sandy loam, gradi ally rolling, with
a Kouthren exposure; the seed used, was both
wh ite and purple Mercers, principally large
ones, cut into three pieces, and rolled in gyp
sum, and aliowed to lie but a few Lours after
cutting. The field was an old sward princi
pally of mo.s and garlics; the manure applied
was entirely from the yards, made from the
cow and horse stables and the styes, about
tvveniy.flve two horse loads per acre, spread
bioadsidti before tlie plow the land having
been heavily limed several years previous.
The planting process commenced with the
tillage, by dropping the pieces o f the tubers
(prepared as above,) about one foot apart in the
bottom of every furrow, which was five inches
i i dep'h and ten wide, strewing them with ash
es and fine charcoal, about twenty bushels per
aire. The plowing was performed in the
u -u:il manner, in lands of the va yx rds
Immediately after planting, the ground was
thoroughly rolled. After it had lain a lew
days it received repsalcd harrowings, length
wise of the furrows, in the warm part of the
day, which continued unlil the tops were three
inches in height, after which they remained
without t:!!ago until fiome eight inches high,
when tho cultivator was passed through, be
l.veen the rows, and tho weeds, if any, renvt
vej. They then received a light lop-dressing
ol gypsum, after which they remained untouch
ed until fit for harves-t, which was dime
as snon as ihc kkins of the new tubers were
firmly set, but before all the tops were entirely
dead. We began to dig ab-ul the first ofsep
lenibcr, before the autumnal rains comn enced.
They were placed in a cool, dark cellar, ai:d
spread on tho ground floor about eighteen in.
ches thick, where they remained for two
months, when they were assorted and placed in
gib ns about four feet deep, there to remain until
marketed in the spring. They have so far
kept perfectly, there being no visible traces of
disease in the entire crop.
The yield was about 50 bushels per acre.
w liich lis a lurch greater pn duct than I anti-
cipated, on account f the esccsbive drought.
The whole cxpe nsc of the tillageot this crop
did not exceed four cents per bushel, indepen.
dent of the planting and harvesting, which
cost not lcs than ten ce;ils per bushu!, making
I the aggregate cost of producing the five acres

abundant, I much prefer being classed with the

muck, chip-aunjr, rotten-wood, mould
from the road side, leaves, straw and sods,
as will furnish a stratum of ekiht inches

mass accumulates, sprinkle on corn, peas,
and if you have them, nuts of any kind
from the forest, and let them be mixed in

to the swine to root, and keep the mass

swine have free access, and as fast as the
materials are worked up add to them, and
so on till the yard is filled. Every hog
will, in this way, manufacture from three

he is old enough to commence fatting hirn,
and with manifest advantages to his health.

irrip;ated either by couducting the water
which falls upon the roofs of the adjoining
buildings therein, or by the suds from the
laundry; water from any source, however,
will sufiice.
