rgiHE subscriber offers to the farmers- through the
_IL county the Egyptian Corn, which Upon trial was
Sound to ripen if planted even the last of July. It is
estimated, from its very prolific' qualities, to
yield 150 bushels per acre, and weighs, by measure,
65 pounds to the bushel. This corn was produced
from some procured direct Iron] Mr. Jones, our Con
solar Agent, directly on his return from Egypt. It
needs no different culture from that of other varieties,
and in the South two crops can be raised on the same
,ground in oneyear. Itgrows in the form of a tree, and
31 ears have grown upon one stalk—average from 5 to
16 ears. For domestic use it le unparalleled. When
ground and properly bolted, it is equal in color and
fineness to wheaten. flour. As a forage crop, by sow
ing in drills or broadcast (tor early feed,) there Is no
kind of 'corn so well adapted to mulch cows, and none
that will yield half the value in stalk or corn.
;trail be successfully grown in any State.

And here 'Squire Dunham sat down in
his velvet. arm-chait, by 'his marble - table,
and- his thoughts Went back through the
long winding- path of theyeats of his yoga'.
Ills boyhood—his glad , careless boyhood—
came back to him. The . gentle, loving
mother, : and the young,, sweet face of, his
sister, arose up before him, and he SAW`the
little brown' cottage-whers , his life came to
him. The old apple tree in front was frost

native town, and he saw at last that greed

til every other wish and purpose of, his life
had been swallowed:np:ln the pursuit of
He was still a young man when he came
to the city, - but he brought with bim.the
title of "'Squire," which he bad borne for
three years. He took to himself a wife, the
daughter of a rich man, and she brought
him a - hundred ' thousand dollars for her
doviry; but in a few years death had sum
moned her away, and she had left no chil
dren, whose soft, sweet voices calling him
"father," should 'melt:the cold heart that
kneW but one love, and AIM w*--money.
Alt this 'SquireDunham thought of as he
sat alone by his table,, with the bright light
of the chandeliers gilding. the .gray head
that rested on his hands;, and he thought,
rich man that he was, that his money didn't
pay; that, after all, the great object of his
life had been., as the man said, a "losing
operation," and he longed to feel that in the
wide world there )vas one human being who
would be sorry to hear that he was dead—
one human being, man, woman, or child,
who would say °, " I ant happier this
because you are on earth."
And in the midst of want and yearning, 'a
sudden determination flashed across the mind
of 'Squire Dunham. He arose and walked
again to and fro, with his hands behind
him, his . ..forehead knit with perplexing
thought, and a variety of emotions floating
over his face.. But suddenly he stopped,
and set down his foot resolutely. "I'll do
it—l will- do it this very night!" And he
went into the hull, took up his cane, and
passed out into the street, contrary to his
usual custom; and the night was dark and
"Did you see Mr. Minor, Henry?" It
was a faint, mournful voice which asked
this question; and the speaker was - a pale,
sad-faced woman, whose sunken eyes - -and
hollow cheeks at once told you she was an
invalid. The chamber where she sat was
very.poorly furnished, but everything was
Heat. A small fire was burning in the grate,
and a solitary candle on the stand.
" No, mother, Mr. Minor won't be at
home for a week," answered the boy slowly,
as though he disliked to communicate the
news. He was a slender, delicatelooking
b `WIRMITHIV n ine t , I "44I - 7a .-- momer, -
looking despairingly on the thin hands
which lay in her lap. "There is no way to
pay the rent, and the agent said if I wasn't
ready when he called to-morrow, we must
go into the street. What will become of
us, my poor children? I'd hung on to Mr.
Minor's getting back, he was so kind to
your father before he died; but.my last hope
is gone now. I could have earned the mon.
ey if it hadn't been for this sickness, bfo't
on by steady sewing; but to-morrow we
must go into the street."
`` Don't cry, mother, I earned a shilling
this afternoon selling papers, and bought
you and Mary each, a nice orange," inter
posed the boy, tryihg to speak in a bright,
hopeful , voice.
And now a small hand was thrust out for
the fruit, and 41 little voice said' earnestly,
"Oh, mother, don't let us feet bad now we
have got the oranges."
At that moment there was a loud rap at
the chamber door, which startled the little
family, but .Harry was not long ushering
into ,the room an old gentleman who in
quired if Mrs. Carpenter lived there.
His glance took, in the room and its three
occupants, and after taking the seat which
harry Carpenter brought him, he said:
" I am 'Squire Dunham, and I called here
to say, Mrs. Carpenter, that I would not
press the matter ltbout the rent; that if you
could not meet it, you might stay here, and
I would not trouble you."
A dash of joy went over the three faces,
but the mother broke down into a sob.-
-" Oh, sir, God in Heaven will bless . you for
this!" and they were the .sweetest words
which Stephen Dunham had heard for many
a day. .
. Btft before he could answer, his gaze was
attracted to a small, wistful, upturned face
in the corner,- and its sweet blue eyes and
the golden gleam in its broWn hair were
like those of that face which shone away
off in the morning of his boyhood, the face
of his sister lletty!
As his gaze met the little girl's she arose
and came toward him.
" You won't scud mamma and Harry and
me into the street, will you?" she said, in
her sweet, pleasing way; "cause we can't
live there when the wind blows, and the
rain comes. The great carriages would go
over us; and mamma's sick, and I'm a little
girl, you know,-and Harry isn't big . enough
to do anything but sell papers."
" My child," said 'Squire Dunham, .4-you

was not quite steady, and there was moist

Wiertz was born in 1800, in the old town
of Dinant on the banks of the river Muse.

One of the triumphs, of his - babyhood was
a wooden frog whiqh he had cut with his
knife, and which was so marvelous ' an imi
tation of the living creature that visitors to
the tailor's shop tried to kick the counter
feit reptile into the street. A captain of
gensd'arrues, who tried-to pierce the wooden
frog with his sword, jwns so amazed by it
-that he talked aboitt it everywhere he went,
and the hews comingtto the ears of M. Paul
Maibe, an art connoisseur at Dinant, he vis
ited,the boy, and became his patron in a
small way; that is to say, he took him home
and had,him taught music and drawing—
for the boy had an aptituda for, music, too.
The result was that at the age of fourteen
Wiertz could teach his drawing master, not
only, but he l!ad acquired a surprising fac
ulty at engraving, in which latter art he was
entirely.self taught. He made wood cuts
of his own original drawings, and having
made the cuts, lie himself printed from
thorn; besides which he could play on some
half a dozen different musical instruments,
but of this art lip made 'little or no use in
after life.
At so early an age as this the boy's soul
bechme fired with a passion for Milieus,
and his patron Dhally took him to Antwerp.
There' the hind-hearted _man did what he
could for his little friendL4ound him eXcel-:
lent masters, and got him -a pension of
about fifty-six dollars from the . Kidg—and
left him to make his way. On this paltry
sum the boy lived, practicing the most' rig

cupations, - outside his nrt- In one of his
letters to his mother, to whom he was ten
derly devoted all his life, he wrote, "Ex
cept for food, I hardly spend two farthings."
His lodging was his studio; and that-studio
was 'a miserable corner in. a' granary, with . -
out fire, and_without lights at evening, the
roof so low that as his stature increased he
leouhl not stand upright in it, but went
'about stooping. Here he wrought all day
long on the paintings which he already de

The Sensation , of Starving.
For the first two days through which a
strong and healthy man is doomed to exist
upon nething, his sufferings are, perhaps,
more acute than tin the remaining states.
He feels an inordinate, unspeakable craving
at the stomach night and day. The mind
runs upon beef, bread, and other substan
tints, but still, in a great measure, the hotly
retains its strength. On the third and fourth
days, burespeemlly on the fourth, this in
cessant craving gives place to a sinking and
weakness of , the stomach, accompanied by
a nausea. The unfortunate sufferer still de
sires food, but with loss of strengthlic loses
that eager craving which is fell, in 'the ear
lier stages. Should he chagee to obtain a
morsellor two of food, he swallows it with
a wolffill avidity, but live minutes afterward
his sufferings are more intense than ever.—
He feels as if lie _had swallowed a living
lobster, which is clawing and feeding upon
the very foundation of his existence: On
the fifth day his - cheeks suddenly appear
holly.v and sunken; ;his body , attenuated; his
,color is ashy pale, and bis eye wild, glassy,
cannibalish. The lifferent parts of the sys•
tem now War with each 'other. The stow-.

of. food; the legs, from very weakness, re

SACI2EDNESS op Tema.—There is a sa
credness in tears. ' They are not the mark
of weakne‘s, but, of power. ' They speak
more eloquently than ten thousand tongues.
They are the messengers of 'oybrwhelming
grief, of deep contrition, and of unspeaka

not the deep solemnity by rude ;laughter or

above the brute. 'We love to .qee tears of
affection. They are painful to :ens, but'still

periments made in England have shown
that,- where fertilizers rich in phosphatic
substances have been used, the potato crop
has been sound. It was early found in the
United States that the use of rich barn yard
urinure aggravated the disease. It is also
known that good sandy soils are better
adapted to this crop than the richer ,loams
and . clays of the prairie, even - when the lat
ter arc thoroughly subdued by tillage.. On
sod, and sod of the second . year of break
ing, the crop is usually sound. The appli
cation of super-phosphate of lime and other
phosphatic manures have always been found
useful in the cultivation of the potato crop.
