Beautiful the children's faces
Spite of all that mare and sears
To my inmost heart appealing ;
Calling forth love:i tenderest feeling;
Steeping all my soul with tears.
Eloquent the children's faces—
Poverty's lean look, which saith,
Save us I sere us I woo surrounds us;
Little knowledge sore confounds us:
Life is but u lingering death.
(live us light amid our darkness;
Let us know the good from ill ;

Love us, lead us, show us kindness—
You eau make us what you will.
We are willing ; we are ready ;
We would learn, if you would !each
We have hearts that yearn towards duty ;
We have winds alive to beauty;
Souls that any height can reach

Consecrate to man our powers i

Let us runup the ago as ours
We shall be what yuu•make us I
Make us wise, and make us good I
Make us strong in thus of trial ;
Teach us tutuperauce,
Patience, kindness, fortitude I
Look into our childish fuces ;
Bea yo not our willing hearts ?
Only love us—only lead us;
Only let us know you need us,
And we all will du our parte.
We are thousands—many thousand.
Every day our ranks increase;
Let us march beneath your banner,
We, the legion of true honot.,

Train us ! try us 1 days slide onward,

Save fro!h ignorance and ruin ;

celery is the best of all that I have ever
grown, as well for my own eating as foi
sale as a market gardener. I have raised
a good deal of celery in various places—
the best on mucky land near Milwaukie I
prefer guano for manure.
T. W. Field—The manure mostly in
use among the market gardeners, is well
' decomposed. comported manure and guano.
Wm. Lawton—l am glad that this sub
ject has been introduced, since the proper
cultivation of celery is a very important
branch of business. I notice the garden
ers about here do not use boards, but they
are very careful about earthing up the
plants every day when they are dry.
Judge Meigs—l have raised celery with
success folly years. The plant loves shade
and must have it when young. I choose

cut back three times. taking care not to tu.
jure the crown, to make the plants strong
before they are transplanted. I prefer to
have celery beds upon an inclination where
I can run water between the rows, and I
have tried sundry things in solution as fel.-
til.zers, but never lound anything equal to
hair, though old expo,lated horns do pretty
well. Decomposed amuck mixed with send
makes an excellent soil for celery.
lIIWA New Jersey farmer hits °frame
folks handsomely. He says :
"People says the farmers are the most
independent class; and pray why shonld
we not be ? We have to work hard enough
for what we get The reason why fann
ers don't fail along with the rest, is because
we live within our meaes. I own a good
farm, and *if I was to live as peopled° in
