Liau on the Death of General Worths
ST O. W. CCTTSa-
Oh! let the solemn minute gun
Arouse the morning raj.
And onlj with the setting sun,
In echoes die away.
Oh, let our banner from the skies,
Like autumn glories fall.
To shed its ever changing dyes
Around the sable pall.
The muffled drum, the wailing fifo,
Ah! let them muriner low,
O'er him who was their breath of life.
The Eolenin notes of woo;
For oh; they they can alone impart
The sorrow of the brave, .
When the. Idol of a soldiers heart
Is followed to the grave.
At Chippewa and Lundy's Lane,
On Polakla's field,
Around him fell the crimson rain,
The battle thunder pealed;
But proudly did the soldier gaze
Upon his daring form,
When charging o'er the cannons' blaze
Amid the sulphur storm.
Upon the heights of Monteray,
Again his flag unrolled,
And when the grape shot rent away
Its latest starry fold,
His plumed cap above his head,
lie waved upan the air,
And cheered the gallant troops ho led
To glorious victory there.
But ah! the dreadful seal is btoke,
In darknes walks abroad,
The pestilence whose silent stroke.
Is like the doomed of God!
And the hero by its fell decree.
In death is sleeping now,
With the laurel wreath cf victory
Still green upon his brow.
His monument shall be the roar
By old Niagara made,
The waves on lovely Tampa's shore,
The silent everglade,
The top of Orizaba, white
With everlasting snow,
The Sierra Madre's lonely height
The towers of Mexico.
Fair eyes shall weep his early doom,
Fair hands shall often bring
And offer ai his sacicd tomb
The dewy flowers of spring;
And with the rank 'twas his to lead
Shall ever live his fame,
While history treasures up the send
That's worth eternal fame.
Think not because tho eyes are bright,
And smiles are laughing there,
The heart t.iat beats within is light,
And free from pain and care.
A blush may tinge the darkest cloud"
Ere Sol's last rays depart;
And underneath tho sunniest smile,
May lurk the saddest heart.
"Mirth's sudden gleam may light the cheek,
Though joy bo far away,
As blossoms oft adorn the tree.
That's hastening to decay:
Alas! 'tis but the vcryinghue
CM April's wayward hours
A sunbeam bursting brightly through,
When all beneath are showers:
For there are pangs the sorrowing heart
Will oft in darkness shroud,
That lurk within tho lonely depths
Like lightning in the cloud.
As falls tho shadow on the path
When bright the sunbeams glare,
Whichever way our thoughts are lurnod,
That darksome- khapc is there.
Though brightly o'er the hollow cheek
The smilo, the laugh may break.
Like bubbles bursting on the breast
Of Acheron's dark lake:
Tby are but outward signs to hide
The deadly pangs we feci.
As o'er the lono and mouldering to wer
Tho rose is taught to steel.

The following is a literal copy of an ad
vertisement, which appeared in a Con
necticut paper, the Farmer's Journal,
some time ago:
Messrs Printers Please to put into

Drilling in Wheat.
We are convinced that putting in wheat
with a drill is not only the preferable plan,
but that a great saving of seed may be
effected by it, and an increased product

the machine, will answer fully as well,
thereby saving 75 bushels in seeding 100
acres. The ridge raised by the machine
protects the plants through the winter;
and in spring, if the roots should be thrown
out, many, if not most of them, will be
covered by the crumbling down of the

to pass a roller over the field, as soon as
the frost was out of the ground and the
sod dry, as the pressing down, or com
pression of the ridges, would necessarily
cover up most of the roots that might be
found exposed upon the surface, and thus
ensure their taking root and growing.
Besides, the intervals between the drills,
would secure a free circulation of air
through the plants while growing, and be
particularly serviceable in pres enting, to
a very grert extent, the grain from rust.

from shrinkage a loss that, we are sure
amounts to at least 20 per cent, where the
