Rail-Road Accidents at Miollidays
We learn from the Hollidaysburg Register, that
on Friday night, the 23d ult., a great explosion took
place in the Tunnel of the Allegheny Portage Rail
. rod, Some cars laden with whiskey and bacon had
been run into the tunnel in the evening, where they
were left for the night; but in coming along, a spark
from the Locomotive had got into ono of them and
remained unobserved. Towards morning it had in
creased to a flame, and, reaching the contents of the
barrels, an explosion of tremendous violence occurred
—rending the car into a thousand atoms, and diem
\ gaging huge manes of rock move; filled the tunnel
to such an extent as to render it impassable for a
day or two.
co' From the same paper we learn that a rather
perilous and unfortunate accident occurred at Plane
10, A. P. Railroad, one day week before last. The
rope broke while a burden train was near the head
of the plane. The cars rushed down the plane “like
mad;". the conductors held on, and applied their
levers, but unavailingly; they gained in velocity
every moment; so that when near the foot of the
plane, the conductors leaped off, and escaped without
injury; but the cars kept on, and coming in contact
with another burden train on the same track at the
bottom, in an instant there was a ~w reck of matter,"
and the road lay strewed with fragments of the bro

"The weather could not be better for harvesting

A friend in Princess Anne informs us that every

and if nothing happens to mar so fair a prospect,
the yield of both will be beyond all precedent."

Time for Mudding Fruit Trees.
August has been generally considered
the best month for building, but other
months are found to answer quite as well.
Pear trees that are not in rich ground
should be budded earlier than August, lon
they often cease to extend their limbs in
July ; and when they have stopped grow
ing, the buds that we insert are nut likely
The peach in nurseries continues to
grow to a late day; and when they are
thrifty, August is early enough to insert
Some nurserymen prefer budding to
grafting apple trees ; and we must say we
have been most successful, in budding.
In grafting, if the scion does not live, we
loose the stock, or we are obliged to wait
for a sprout to grow large enough to be
operated upon. In case of a failure of a
a bud in August, the stock in which it was
inserted may have a grift in the spring;
thus a nurseryman will stand a double
chance of keeping his rows full.
The operation of nodding is simple; yet
some of our young friends never seen it
performed ; and we will try to describe it,
though it is a harderjob than to bud a
stock. The bud should be cut from a
41 litnb or to ig of this year's growth, and a
slip of bark should be taken from the twig
with the bud, one, inch in length ; half of
t his -lip a'oie , and half Wow tilt:tld.
little of the sap wood of the twig will nat
urally be sliced nit and will adhere to the'
bark inclosing the bud. It has been cus
tomary to peel out the sap wood, and leave
nothing but the clear balk with the bud ;
hut unless this is done with caution, a
vital part of the eye of the bud will come
out, also, and spoil the bud. Some in sli•
cing ul the bud, take out a little of the sap
wood from the twig, and they let that res
main. As soon as the bust is prepared,
take a sharp penknife and cut a perpendi
cular slit in the stock, one inch long, and
as near the ground as you can with con
venience. You must cut quite through
the balk, at the bottom of the slit cut an
other at right, angles, or directly across
the stock, so deep as to enable you to raise
the bark or peel it up enough to admit the
budunder it ; this may be done with a
smooth bit of iron or ivory ; the bud should
then be run under the bark, and should
be slid up as far as the slit will admit ; if
the bark of the bud be too long fur the slit,
it should be cut off square with thecros scut
in the stock ; and the bud should be kept
in place by tying some matting around the
stock, above and below the bud.
Some choose the month of June for bud.
ding; in this case, the bud will become a
limb in the same season. When the buds
are inserted early, care must be taken to
cut the matting, or to loosen it, on finding
that the stock wools more room.—
Massachuscits Ploughman. .
Things to be Remembered.
Horses should never be put to severe
work on a full stomach. More horses
are hurt by hard driving after a teed,
than by a full teed atter driving.
It the farmer wishes to have his pork
barrel and meat closet to hold out, let him
look well to his kitchen garden. Plenty
of vegetables conduces not more to health
than lard to profit.
In laying in a stock of winter fodder for
animals, let it not be forgotten that a litt le
too much is just enough. Starving ati.t
mats at any time is miserable -policy.
As you treat your land so it will treat
you. Feed it with manure liberally and
it will yield you bread bountifully.
Avoid debt as you would the leprosy.
If you are tempted to purchase on credit,
put it oft' for three days. You need time
Never beg fruit, or any thing else you
can produce by the expenditure of a little
time or Wow. It is as reasonable to ex
pect a man to give away the pi oducts nl
his wheat field, as of his orchard or fruit
you keep your sheep and cattle in
your meadows until June, don't complain
because .you are compelled to purchase
hay for your stock.
Ihe man who uces good seed, has a
good soil, and works it in good season,
rarely fails of having a goad crop to re.
ward hi; toil.
Never forfeit your word. The saying
in truth, of any farmer, his word is as
good as his hand," is worth more to him
than the interest of $lO,OOO annually.—
