SCRAPS FOR FARMERS.
From Chapin's Hand Book of Plants, &c.
Zistory of the Potato.
The potato was found wild in various
parts of America, by the first discoverers,
and is still so found. It grows abundant
ly in a wild state near Valparaiso, and
along the coast for many miles, where its
flowers are always a pure white, instead
of being coloried like the cultivated plant.
It has been transplanted to foreign botan
ical gardens, where the tubers vary but
very little from *the common cultivated
plant. 'rhe attempts, therefore to make
it appear doubtful as to its origin, or as
not incleginous to this country, renders
the fact of its being so the more apparent,
and the quibblers inure isilly and selfish.
It was brought, into use in Great Bri•
fain against the strongest and most ridi
culous prejudices and misrepresentations
of the aristocracy and professional men.
Many writers on plants dill not even
imentimi it for more than 100 years after
its introduction, and not until its merits
and cultivation had forced it upon public
attention. It had lon. been cultivated in
Ireland, and was well known in Scotland,
before it was much used in England.
It was called, in the records of a voys
age to this country, the openawk. The
Irish gardener of Sir W. Raleigh, on find
ing one potato of the maturity of 'apples,'
as the result of planting, earnestly en•
quired of Sir W. if that were the fine
fruit of Ameriky. Pretending to be dis
appointed himself, Sir W. ordered his
gardner to root out the seeds entirely, in
doinw e which, instead of ole, he found a
a bushel of potatoes.
Religious prejudices were waged against
it, it having been maintained that "pota
toes are not mentioned in the bible:' , —
Therefore the same anathema was pro
nounced against it as were pronounced
against "spinning wheels" and "corn
ahellers." On no subject tlo men appear
so irrational as when arraying their re
ligious prejudices against science and the
gifts of nature.
More recently the priests of the lonni
an 'blends pronounced the potato "the
forbidden fruit, and the cause of the fall
of man; " hence its use must be sacrile
gious and wicked. Nor were the French
without their prejudices against its use,
they having rejected a gentleman for culs
tivating it, and alleged that he invented
it. Popular favor subsequently set in so
strong in its favor that Louis XIV, and
his court wore the flower in their coats.
During the dearth of the revolution, the
cultivation was effectually established.—
The peasants of Italy were offered a re
ward by the government before they could
be induced to cultivate it ; but during a
subsequent famine, they refused to receive
a reward fur that which had save , ' their
The potato is now generally cultivated
in India, Dhina, and the East. But it
does not thrive well in tropical climates,
below three or four thousand feet from the
level of the sea.
The potato came into general use on
the Continent about the middle of the last
century. A royal edict brought it into
general cultivation in Sweden in 1764.
In Switzerland it was in use in 1720, and
was first made into bread in 1780; so that
in 1760 it constituted the food of two
thirds of the people. In Poland, also, it
has become a chief arttcle of food, K.
763,700 lbs. being raised there in 1827.
It was introduced into India about 40
years ago, and it is there now extensively
cultivated. It ►s said to be the beat gift
which the natives ever received from their
enlightened European masters. In Hin
doston, too, it is increasingly cultivated,
as there, it is said, no religious prejudices
exist against its introduction, as was the
case with their enlightened European mas
ters. But this plant has forced itself into
universal use by its valuable qualities,
and is now admitted, even by British
writers, as "necessary to the English
inan's fare," and as "the plant which
seems alone to have been wanting to make
the British Isle complete." A glance at
the products of our country shows the
engrossing importance of this vegetable,
especially since emigration has become so

Tho Devoted Wife,
DY JOHN O. WHITTIER,
She was a beam tful girl. When I first
saw her, she was standing by the side of
her lover at the marriage altar. She was
slightly pale—yet ever and anon as the
ceremony proceeded a faint tinge of crim
son crossed her cheek, like the reflection
of a sunset cloud upon the clear waters of
a lake. Her lover, as he clasped her
hand within her own, gazed on her for a
moment with unmingled admiration, and
he warm eloquent blood shadowed at in
tervals his manly forehead, and "melted
into beauty on his lips."
And they gave themselves to one anoth
er in the presence of heaven, and every
heart blessed them as they went on their
way rejoicing in their love.
Years passed on, and I saw those lovers.
They were seated together where the
light of summers sunset stole through the
half closed and crimson curtain, lending
a richer tint to the carpeting and the ex
quisite embellishments of the rich and
Time had slightly changed them in out.
ward appearance. The girlish buoyancy of
the one had indeed given place to the grace
of perfect womanhood, and her lip was
somewhat paler, and a faint line of care
was perceptable on her brow. Her hus.
band's brow, too, was marked somewhat
more deeply than his age might warrant;
anxiety, ambition and pride had grown
over and left their traces upon it ; a silver
hue was mingled with the dark of his
hair almost to baldness. He was reclining
on a splendid otoman, with his face hall
, hidden by his hand, as if he feared that
thoughts which oppressed him were visi
ble on his features.
"Edward, you are ill to-night," said his
wife in a low, sweet, half inquiring voice,
as she laid her hands upon his own.
Indifference from those we love is terri
ble to the sensitive bosom, It is as if the
sun of heaven refused its wonted cheer
fullness, and glared upon us with a cold,
dim, and forbidding glance. It is dread
ful to fee! that the only being of our love
refaces to ask our sympathy—that lie
broods over the feelings that lie scorns or
fears'to reveal—dreadful to watch the[con
vtilsive features and gloomy brow—the in
definable shadows of hidden emotion—
the involantary sigh of sorrows in which
we are forbidden to participate, whose
character we cannot know.
The wife essayed once more. 'Edward,'
said she slowly, mildly and affectionately,
'the time has been when you wei e willing
to confide your secret joys and sorrows
to one, to one who has never, I trust, be
trayed your confidence. Why, then, my
dear Edward, is this cruel reserve? You

Something of returning tenderness soft

the husband's features, but it passed away
and a bitter smile was his only reply.
Time passed on and the twain were
separated from each other. The husband
sat gloomy and alone in the damp cell
of a dungeon. He had mingled with the
men whom his heart loathed, he had
sought the fierce and wronged spirits of
his land, and had breathed into them the
madness of revenge. lie had drawn his
sword against his country; he had fan
ned rebellion to a flame, and it had been
quenched in human blood. He had fal

The door of the dungeon opened, and a
light form entered and threw herself into
his arms. The softened light of sunset
fell upon the pale brow add wasted cheek
of his once beautiful wife.
"Edward—my dear El ward," said she,
"I have come to save you. I have reach
you after a thousand difficulties, and I
thank God my purpose is nearly executed."
Misfortune had softened the proud
heart of manhood, and as the husband
pressed the pale wife to his bosom, a tear
trembled on his eyelash. "I have not
merited this kindness," he murmured, in
the clioaked tones of agony.
"Edward," said his wife, in an earnest
but taint and low voice, which indicated
extreme and fearful debility, "we have

"you look sadly ill. You cannot breathe

"0 speak not of me dearest Ed ward,"
said the devoted woman, "I can endure

haste, and all will be well," and she aided
with trembling hands, to disguise the
proud form of her husband, in the female
"Farewell, my Ave, my preserver,"
whispered the husband in the ear of his
disguised wife, as the officer reminded the
supposed lady that the time allotted to
her visit had expired. Farewell: we shall
meet again," responded his wife—and the
husband passed out unsuspected, and es
caped the enemies of his life.
They did meet again—the wife and
the husband—but only as the dead may
meet in the awful communion of another
world. Affection had borne up her ex
hausted spirit until the last purpose of
her exertions was accomplished in the
safety of her husband; and when the bell

sicknesrcan effect the human frame, that
these celebrated Pills do not relieve as much
as medicine can do. Cocos and COUGHS
are more beneffitted by the Brandreth Pills
than by Lozenges and Candies. Very well,
perhaps, as palliatives, but worth nothing as

CURE OF A CANCEROUS SORE.
SING SING, January 21, 1843.
Da. BENJAMIN BRANDRETH:
Owing to you a debt of gratitude that mo
ney cannot pay. I am induced to make a
public acknowledgment of the benefit my
wife has derived from your invaluable Pills.
About three years this winter she was taken
with a pain in her acle; which soon became
very much inflamed, and swollen, so mach
that we became much alarmed, and sent
for the doctor. During his attendance the
pain and swelling increased to an alarming
degree, and in three weeks from its first
commencing it became a running sore. She
could get no rest at night the pain was so
great. Our first doctor attended her for six
months, and she received no benefit what
ever, the pain growing worse and the sore
larger all the time. He said if it was healed
up it would be her death, but lie appeared
to be at a loss how to proceed, and my poor
wife still continued to suffer the most terrible
tortures. We therefore sought other aid,
in a Botannical doctor, who said when lie
first saw it that lie could soon cure the sore
and give her ease at once. 'l'o our surprise
he gave her no relief, and acknowledged that
it quite baffled all his skill.
Thus we felt atter having tried during one
whole year the experience of two celebrated
physicions in vain, in absolute despair. My
poor wife's constitution rapidly failing in
the prime of her years from her continued
suffering. Under these circumstances we
concluded that we would try your Universal
Vegetable Pills, determined to fairly test
their curative effects. To my wife's great
comfort the first few doses afforded great re
lief of the pain. Within one week to the
astonishment of ourselves and every one who
knew the case, the swelling and the infla
'nation began to cease so that she felt quite
easy, and would sleep comfortable, and sir,
after six weeks' use she was able to go tliro'
the house and again attend to the manage
ment of her family, which she had not done
for nearly fourteen months. In a little over
two months from the time she first commen
ced the use of your invaluable Pills her ancle
was quite sound, and her health better than
h had been in quite a number of years be
fore. I send you this statement atter two
years test of the cure, considering it only an
act of justice to you and the public r.t large,
We are with much gratitude,
Very resp etfu I ly - ,

the sore cancerous, and finally said no good
could be clone,unless the whole of the flesh
