The heads of the Mormon ilhurch, give us snylt , queer speciments of preaching. The following is from a late sermon by President Kimball: ..1-low long do you supposed it will take a little man like ine—though I feel per fectly able to thrash any six common wick ed men—lf I am faithful in keeping the commandments of God, and true all the Clays of my life to my brethren, as I have been hitherto. and men to be more to got into the celestial kingdom of God with my whole posterity, in case there should be no obstruction ? How long do you suppose it will be before toy posterity in creases to over a million ? A hundred years will not puss away before I will be come millions myself. You may go to work and reckon it up, and twenty-five years will not pass away before Brother Brigham and t will number inure than this Whole territory. In twenty-five or thirty years we will have a larder number in our two families than there now is in this whole 't erritory, which numbers store than seventy•five thousand. If twenty five years will produce this amount of peo ple, how much will the increase in one hundred years ? We would not number them, or, if we did sum up the amount to any given time, they are still on the in troit*. Matrimonial Lottery. On the 21st day of December lam, 1 sir A girl, who had become tired o sincle blessedness, wrote to her intended thus : ".Dear Jim, cum rite off if you are cum min at all ; Ed.

'Excuse haste and a bad pen.' as the hog said when he fled from the butcher. gar Mrs. Partington, on being asked respecting a pair of twins with which she was said to have been recently blessed, replied that if such was th fact, it need not be wondered at, for she belonged to a very growing family, arid though none of rem had twins, yet several of them had conic within one of it. Mr As Joe was walking up Washing- ton street yesterday with a friend. who ludulgos pretty freely in the use of the weed, the latter remarked that he wile al. most roasted. 'No wonder,' replied Joe, 'as you bare been on the spit all the morning,' PATIENCE —When Dencen B—'s wife died, the bereaved husband endeavored to console himself by gaining the smiles of a pretty servant girl in his family, whose name was Patience—but the gray locks and wrinkled visage of the worthy man, were unsuccess ul pleaders in the Court of Love. and she would encourage none of his advances. The preacher paid him a visit. 'You must endeavor to be resigned to the will of heaven, and you will find it advisable to have patience, under this of (liming dispensation. 'Well.' said the deacon, with sudde animation in his manner, , 1 have, to tell you the truth, Mr. been trying her a little, but she seams a Litt!, (IRA.' VOL. XXIII. NO. 9. Annus' (fnitinin. American Institute Farmers' Club. Celery,—flow to grow ii.—Solon Rob. isson—l have a letter from 8. W. Paine, Johnson Creek, N. Y., which, though on. like the preceding one that gives us some important information how to grow pots. toes, is equally important, becaus it asks how to grow a valuable plant ; and it is on• . ly by asking questions that answeiqien be be obtained. Mr. Paine wants to know how to grow celery, and so do I and some thousands of others, and perhaps there may be somebody here who thinks it such a simple operation that he has . never tho't it worth while to tell others, who will see by this letter that somebody etse,wants to know. The writer says : most desire to know how to make a bed fo• an acre or more of celery which will keep out or prevent the destructive ness of the gnat, fly, or worm, which de stroys the young plant wholesale and m oil. I suppose that they arise from the fermentation of the manure; if so, what mixture will keep them away ?

Mr. Pardee—l tried, one year, seven sorts of celery, and found Cole's superb celery the best of all ; it grows small, and of is pink color, but it is very superior.— ThQ aced is now common; it originated is England. Seymour's new solid celery is white, and also a very excellent sort, Mr Gore of New Jersey—My mode of raising celery is this : I dig a trench 12 or 14 inches deep to set the plants in. and al ways manure with guano or phosphate. I set a board upon each side of the row, so that no dirt can get into the heart of the plant when I commence earthing up, and keep them there until I get my trench fill ed as high as the surface of the ground... The soil is a sandy loam. lam very suc cessful, and produce it very fine. Icover the plants with boards in Winter, and dig out from one end of the row as 1 want it. It should be carefully earthed up every day. Ihe moat essential thing in raising celery is to blanch it well Andrei! Fuller of Brooklyn—Seymour'. 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 such a situation as will be shaded at mid day, as the north side of a building, or in the shade of a tree, for the best location for a celery plant•bed. Dr. Wellington—The unifoim custom here is to sell three celery plants together, at about the saine !nice that ono brings at . Boston, and yet the Boston celery is the the best at three tunes the price. It grows there fur superior to what it doe.; in this vicinity. It is only necessary to shade the nursling plants of celery, and not the after growth. Prof. Alupea—l have tried a great many experiments in growing celery, and have settled the whitest as the best, aid that above all other manures, hair, such as I get from skin dressers, put in the bottom of this trench, is the best. The young plants I 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 ?
