Not thine I not thine I is the glittering crest
And the glance of the snow-white plume—
Nor the badge that glealis from the warrior's
Like r star 'mid the battle's gloom !
Nor is thy place 'mid thy country's host,
Where the war-steed champs the rein—
Where waving plumes aro like soa-foam tost,
And the turf wears a gory stein.
Not these I not these I are thy glorious dower!
But a Mier gift is thine ;
When the proud have fallen in triumph's hour,
And the red blood flowed like wine,
To wipe the dew from the clammy brow—
To raise the drooping head—
TO cool the parched lips fevered glow,
And to smooth down the lowly bed !
Not thine I not thine ! is the towering height,
Where ambition makes his throne—
The timid dove wings not her flight
Where the eagle soars alone—•
But in the hall, and in the. bower,
And by the humblest hearth,
Man feels the charm, and owns the power
That binds him still to earth.
Yes, these are thine ! and who can say
His is a brighter doom,
Who wins fame's gory wreath of bay,
Round an aching brow to bloom ?

To soothe every pang of woe,
And to whisper hope to the fainting heart,

This is the most, profoundly scientific), work
which hai been published in this country' on the
department of Reasoning, slime the appear t ance
of Mill's celebrated treatise. In many re
spects it is vastly ~preferable either to
the compend of Whately, or to the 'larger 'and
more pretensions volume of Mill. It is as small
as Whatley's book,, but much more analytic,
thorough, and penetrating, going,down as - it does
to the foundation principles on which all reason
ing is paled ; while on the other hand it is an
actual Text Book, and fitted for the - exercises of
the class-room, .over which, in the course of a
session, the students of a Collegiate, Class should
be carried, instead of being an extensive essay, on
Metaphysics, as in the work of Mill.
It is customary with smatterers in Classics, and
dabblers in Science, to speak disparagingly of Ox
ford, and of the literary training of that vener
able place. Were we'not able to appeal in refu
tation of the implied charge of ignorance and in
efficiency which isthus made, to the fact that has
been developed by the government arrangements
for the reception of candidates for office,, from all
the Colleges and the Universities of theßmpire,
in consequence of which the relative practical
value of their respective system has been tested,
and which has placed Oxford at the head, an ex
amination of this book would satisfy tiny intelli
gent mind, that the intellectual training of Queen's
College, at least, must be of the most exalted or
der. The students who ire drilled into 'a
and comprehensive understinding of logic as
treated of In this Text Book, and of the works,
both ancient and modern, to which 'reference is
made, must be thorough masters of the science.
In this respect they enjoy a decided advantage
over the students of the Scottish Colleges.
In Oxford and in Trinity College, ' Dublin,
a Text Book is made the basis of instruction.
This book must be mastered ; and from the Twit
Book, the student is carried out by the Jecturer
over all the field of the particular science'; and
thus having, by the book, become accurate in his
views, he is, by the addition of the lectures, ex
aminatione, essays,. and additional works of ref
erence, made extensively acquainted with the
whole range of which be is now able to compre
hend the relation of its separate parts.
As a Text Book this work is invaluable. We

Astronomy is no longer confined to the schools
of the learned, but tha, seism* has taken its
place upon the platform s and no other subject ,
draws such audiences to the popular lecturer.
We read of it in the newepapdrs, and we
talk of it in our families. The work, whose name
is given above, is moat admirably adapted to
secure the results intemded. It embraces all the-
recent observations of the heavenly bodies, con
dnoti.the reader step by step from the base to

far, as praoticable, by figures and diagrams, all
thei celestial phenomena, and the laws to which
they are subject, without entering into the mathe

their chief study. This work is highly recom

Pruning and Protecting.
Ennton :—As the time is now at
hand for pruning fruit and shade trees, al
low me, through the columns of your paper,
to give a few practical hints.
With regard to the proper manner of so
,doing, all shade trees should be pruned or
trimmed to a shape corresponding with their
situation ; for' instance, along an avenue or
street, and in front of a house, the shade is
desirable down on the pavement, around the
door, and at the chamber windows, and not
on the roof or top-of - the. house. ,To secure,
this, the tree should be headed down more
or less every Spring, for five or six years af.
.ter it hate first been.set out, litifin.no-case
should the side branches be cut off unless
they are so - thick as to rub 'agabist each
other, After , a tree-- is twelve or fifteen
years old, it should not be pruned or touched
by the axe or saw, excepting to remove the
deadwood.. ,I. have seen many fine, healthy
trees ruined' by improper pruning. Some
times persons will divest a tree, six to eight
inches in diameter, of all its branches, and
will then cut off a Elution of the top:leav
ing nothing but an unsightly trunk. Trees
thus trimmed will take more time to recover
aid give shade, than,is necessary to produce
shade from a thrifty young tree, ;and'
frequently they never. recover ; So all the
labor, is lost.
Fruit trees should be trimmed so as'
to admit the light of the sun to every
branch; by this means the fruit will _be''
larger and, more perfect than when left to
grow at random. No suckers should be al
lowed to grow on a fruit tree; but as much
depends upon the soil and exposure, it is
impossible to give a rule that will apply to
all situations. Experience and care, with
the exercise of a good, judgment, must sup
ply any deficiency in this report.
Roses and flowering shrubbery may be
trimmed according to taste, being careful
to remove the old wood and that which may
have been killed by the Winter. The Pm
per time for trimming roses and shrubbery
is in the latter end of Mara, after the frosts
are over and the buds begin to swell, as you
can then see what has been killed by the
Winter. And here I would remark, that
the best method of preserving tender roses,
is—where it can be done and the wood is
not too strong—to lay down the bushes and
cover them over with earth to the depth of
two or three inches, having first secured the
bushes, to the ground with pegs. It is not
so much the frost that kills rose bushes, as
the effect of the sun upon them after they
are frozen, and before the warmth of the
atmosphere has drawn the frost out. Where
they, cannot be laid down, a good plan is to
surround them with cedar brush, carefully
tied up. - This admits .the air and at the
same time keeps off the, sun. Some persons
tie up the bushes in straw. This is a bad
plan, for very frequently upon opening them
in the Spring we find the wood all mildewed,
and before the season is over it dies out.
Raspberry bushes may be protected in the
same manner as roses.- 7 - Germantown Tele.
Cleaning the Bark of Frnit Trees,
The fungi on the bark of trees, scaly in
sects on pear trees, cocoon and ova of in
sects, etc., may be-all removed by a few ap
plioations of, the wash we have so often re.
commended: We are induced to write
again on this subject in answer to the nu
merous inquiries made, as to the best method
for cleaning the bodies of dwarf pear trees,
etc. The ordinary ealeoda of the shops,
when heated to redness in an iron vessel,
parts with water and carbonic acid,. bccom
sing caustic soda, sometimes called " Bleach
er's No. 1 Soda." One pound of this Soda
disiolved in one gallon of water, is,the best
tree wash in the world: Unlike potash, it
does s not kill or injure live plants,.but rapid
ly decomposea dead bark, fungi, ova of in
sects, cocoons ; scaly insects, &o. It may be
applied with a sponge and then. suffered :to
dry on i the bark: the first rain or heavy dew
will remove it, running down thp 'bark to
the soil lt richere it is worth all it, costs, as
manure. In bad eases, such as scaly insect,
bide bound trees,,old s trees with,muoh, dead
or unsightly bark, it may require to be ap
plied several times, and to be assisted by
rubbing the tree while wet with a stiff brush
and sand,'or an old carpet or other' woolen

cloth, sanded. The smooth 'bark trees,
plums, etc., become really polished by its
use, and insects find it difficult to attaoh
themselves. Old apple bark decays and is
thrown off as the tree expands, leaving a
new and clean surface, and sometimes pro
ducing a fruit after having been useless for
years. We believe that a clean surface to a
tree is just as important as a clean skin to
an animal. The
,natural functions of the
tree cannot be developed with an unhealthy
How to Plant Roam
Low, wet ground is unfavorable for the
growth of roses, and if planted in such
soils, without the aid of artificial draining,
they soon become mossy and die away.
Where your soil is of this character you
must proceed thus :—First of all have - the
whole of the ground well drained, then
trench it over to the depth of eighteen
inches or two feet, throwing the mould up
in ridges to allow of the frost and winds to
act upon it ; when thoroughly dry, level it
down, and where the plants are to be placed,
take out the soil two feet deep;.put about
six inches of brickbats in the bottom, then
mix some well-rotted manure with the soil,
and fill in as before. With a deep stiff
loam and dry soil, Which is the natural soil
of the rose, little more than trenching and
manuring will be required, except for the
tea•seented and China tribe for which the
addition of sand and leaimould will be
Insects on Plants.
One of the' greatest annoyances a gar
dener has to contend with, is the ravages of
insects upon young plants. • I have a rem
edy which I have applied for several yea*
and have never known it to fail. Take
three parts air-slaked , lime, or unleaded
ashes "and one part Peruvian guano, or any
other substance containing a large percentage
of ammonia;, mix, them well together; and
dust the plants while the'dew is upon them,.
and apply, it, alter every rain; but care must
be taken that too much is not used at one
time, or it will have a deleterious effect upon
the plants; a light "dusting is all that is ne
:cessary.' I neticed the effect more particu-.
larly _last Spring, upon a patch of cantaloupe
vines, which..the yellow bugs were eating
up. I dosted.about one•half of, the patch;
the next morning there was not a bug to be
seen on that portion of it, while , they were,
literally devouring the 'other; Witt autitin g
cleaned them all out, in ten minutes so-effec
tually that I" was not pothered again the
balance of the season. I have found it to
. equally good for cabbage , and - other
plants. Ido not know the effect, unless it
is in the ammonia being set free, which,-per
haps, is a little too strong for their olfactory
nerves.—D. Al R., in Horticulturist.
Tomatoes—Supporting and Shortening in.
Fe* gardens are now found unsupplied
with tomatoes, but very few persons take
pains to cultivate them. - The vines are
usually left to straggle ad libitum. This
is both bad economy and bad taste. If to
are planted in rows, a convenient
plan is to put up stakes on both sides of
each row, and nail on horizontal strips or
slats, to keep the vines perpendicular.
They may be carried up to the' height of
three to five feet. 13y this means the vines
will show Enna better, especially , when cov
ered with ripened fruit clustering thickly
upon the aides. The fruit itself will be much
superior to that matured on the ground and
in the shade. Strong twine or wires may
be substituted for the horizontal A
cheap 'process of supporting tomatoes is to
bush them, in the.same manner that beans.
or peas are treated Our own tomatoes are
planted around the border of' the garden,
'and trained upon the fence, the vines being
upheld by strips of leather, doubled around
the stalks and fastened to'the fence with
small nails. ' = •
Tomatoes are also benefited by shortening
in. Three•fourths .of the mature fruit is
produced upon a small part of the vine
nearest to the `root,• say one.third or one
fourth,of its length. It is recommended to
atop the further development of vines after
a fair supply of fruit is set, by clipping off
the vines growing beyond. The clipping
should not be carried too far, as a supply of
,foliage is required to gather fOod from the
'air. One of the most sueeessful cultivators
in our acquaintance, made it a rule to let no
vine extend beyond four feet from its root.

have attracted much attention from the-medical profession.
To give a genera idea of their settee, we make the follow.
ing extracts from Dr. Churchill's Parer " On the Proximate
Cause and Specific Remedy of 'Tuberculesie," read Hors
the Academy of Medicine, eerie, July, 1857. Says Dr. "
The total number of cases of Phthisis' treated by I n s
amounts to thirty-fives All were either in the second or
third' stages of the complaint; that is, they bad either
softened tubercles or cavities in the lungs: of teese, nine
recovered completely, the physical signs of the disease dis
appearing altogether in eight out of that number; eleven
improved conslierably, and fourteen died. The results
will be found to justify the following conclusions:
"The proximate cause, or at all events an essential con
dition of the tubercular diathesis, is the decrease in the
system of the phosphorus which it contains in an oxygeni
‘• The [specific remedy of the disease consists In the use of
a preparation of phosphorus, uniting the two conditions,
being in each a state that it may be directly assimilated,
and at the same time at the lowest possible degree of oxy
"The effects of there Salts upon the tubercular diathesis
is immediate; all the general symptoms of the disease di} -
appearing wito a rapidity which is really marvelous. If
the pathological deposit produce' by the dyseracy in of re
cent formation, if softening has only just set in, and Joe
not proceed too rapidly, the tubercles are reabsorbed and

issue of the disease then depends upon an anatomical

existence or non-existence of complications. 1 have made
numerous attempts to modify the local condition of the
lunge by the inhalation of different substances, but have
never obtained any satisfactory result independent of what
Wes to be attributed to the specise. treatment. The Elypo

-have a two-fold action; on the one hand they increase the
principle, whatever that may be, which constitutes net.

several functions concerned in alimentation and nutrition.
They seem to poetess, in the highest degree, all the thera

.which attends the use .cf that substance. The different
preparations of Elypophospborns Acid will undoubtedly
occupy one of the meet important places in the Materiel
The success of this treatment being so much in advance'
of anything before attained in the management of this
heretofore almost incurable disease, calls for a thorough
testing of these remedies. With this view, the cousbinatioa
here offered in the form of Syrup has been made.
The beneficial effects of these Salts are not limited to
