'To keep pace with the growing interest in
practice' Elortioultine, `lted te• eentrily.with:fre-,
,giant apirals - from all parts of- the country, for
information of a practical character on the sub
jeCt; we have engaged the. services of. a potion,
,who is experienced in rural affairs to' write in sa
lucid style a series of articles on the management
of Small Farms. Fruit and Vegetable Culture,
and bow to"nialte them pay, giving' general and
specific directions from planting to the ultimate
disposal of of tho crops.
Of late years titere has been a lucrative busi
ness carried on .by unprincipled men,,.
worthless and old plants under new names to tiv:
inexperir,nced. The Tribune will be 'always
ready to guard the farinoritgeinst any, stielt,im:
volition that comes'vrithle-our knowledge.
• To make' The tribune' itill tridke, valuable; to
its agrienitural readers, we have 'engaged Prof.
James Law, Veterinary,Bargoon in Corpell Dni
verititY; to arillwer qtiestieneeotteerning'•distieses
of Cattle;;llorses,'Sheisti, and other domestic aril
and to prescribe remedies. Ansv?ers-and
presekiptions will be' given only' through' the eOl
a:Una oli,The Tribune. We are sure that this
new feattire in Th 6 Tribune - will addlirgely 'to
its renders, as all miner's ofanimals hie liable
need the information proffered. Inquiries, sbo'
bo made as brief as possible, that " the questions
answers, and prescriptions may ho published td- I ,
gather. In short, we intend that The Tribun r e'
shall keep in the advance in all that concerns
Agricultural, Manufacturing, Mining, and other
interestcrof the country; and' thlirfek varietylind
completeness, it shall remain altogether the most
valuable, interesting, and instructive Newspaper
published iri the world. ,
It has-been well observed that ct,eareful read

features from year to year. As it is, no prudent
farmer can do without it. As a lesson to his
workmen alone, every farmer should place 'the
Weekly Tribune upon his table every Saturday
evening. -
-The Tribune is this host and cheapest paper RI
the country. This is not said in a spirit of
boastfulness. It has fallen to Now-York to cre

every copy of The Weekly Tribune contains as

long been conceded that The Aeekly• Tribune

, I turned into the grave' yaEd,
stiAnge influence came over me, afid it
seemed that I, too, was one of the,dead.
The old Academy failed away;' the
'glorsus landscapes around, grew !aim;
the viillage helow,•seemed, but the lurt
subStxtritial. fabrics of a dream; and at
lastiall went out, and to me, alb things
were notlflpg, and I was not. ,
• How long, I know not, for there is no
:tithe in eternity; - but at last, creeping
over me with a strange-influence, there
came a dim, liaiy memory of myielf—
dim as the firit ray of -light, creeping
along the raiders of Infinite - darkness;
and then an old home that looked, out
'upon me in the dimness, and old elms
towering in front, and tall chestnut
.trees In the distance—and walking
in the ,shade, a middle aged - man and
a beautiful Vornan, and upon the trees
anti under them, innumerable children,
seen only to fade away—and then the
grand panorama of a whole life, and
leas again in the old grave yard—l,
and all its dead; each one there —I
knew most of them, crowding around,
me, and greeting me with a ghostly
smile, as a new comer to the spirit land—
a new inhabitant of the old Grave Yard
on the Rill.
There were there, the old and the
young, beautiful girls, athletic young
,gray-headed old men and women,
and sweet children, all hovering around
me, and seeming, at times, to become a
part of me, and I, of them; all inter
mingling in one,and yet each preserVing
his identity. They had no voice: no
sound was heard in all that desolate
cemetery-of the dead; and yet It was as
though they talked with each other,
and with me ; sometimes like the sweet
melody of music, then like the earnest
conversation of those) who would seek
convince; and then like the loud
shoufof hapyy souls;
There were prattling children; the
'noiseless' mirth of merry girlhood; the
sober l yeice of manhood; the trembling
voice of old age, and yet there was no
sound—ii was as it were, the language
•o't thonght. I asked no questions, for
As soon us a ,qnestioning thought ttioiie

nahow,,but it seemed to come from
all around me—not orally, not written,
not, in, characters ; but as the soft in-
IlttiinOe of gentle magnetism ;'like the
uribreathed answer of love to love.
-WhO; old grave yard was there ; the
'broken-down fence, the unshapely trees,
the dwarfed thorns, the .unsightly bri
ars, the broken tombstones, the deep
ideals from which,the buried dead had
been raised to be transported to the new
cemetery----all just as I saw them in life;
and yet ; we passed among them and
throtigh. them without, hindrance, for
they were: alll.its , *e_were—tlie imma

I noticed that over nearly all the
graves, there was a kind of phosphoric
glimmer ; 'over soling just' perceptible;
others,yet brighter over some, a bright
halo - of glory ; and this pliosphores 7
cence seemed also a part of the dead
themselves; sometimes assuming the
outlines of the human form, yet, as the

Over a few, graves there was no light,
and yet I observed that the bodies lay

and city—miserable loafers, whose sole
occupation is to void employment of
any kind—whoSe lives can hardly be
called live S—who die one after another
and leave behind them—what?*A va

are in themselves vacancies; not men.

Four different stores I entered. with

shouldn't know whether I could get

We entered the' fifth store, and the
little fellow walked up manfully, and
told the gentleman just what he wan=

Yon want the book very; very much?"
said the proprietor., ! -
Yes; sir, very muoli.' • 1 !,

Well, my lack, I will, tell on what I

and I told him what I had seen of the

and when he Orouguu aton s ,
saw a nice new pencil and some clean
white paper in it.

Thank you, sir. You ore very good.'
What is - your name?'
Harverly, sir.'
Do you . want any more books?' I
now asked him.
More than I ever can get." he re
plied, glancing at the books that filled
the shelves.
I gave him a bank note. 'lt will
buy some for you my boy,' said I.
Tears Of joy came into his eyes.
Can I buy what I want with it?'
' Yes, niy lad, anything.'
Then buy one book for pother,'
said he "I thank yop very much,' and
some day I hope 1 can pay you back.'
He. wanted my name and I gave it to
him. Then - I left him standing by the
counter, so happy that I almost envied
him ; and many years pawed before I
saw him again. •
• Last year
. I went to Europe Qn one of
the finest vessels than ever plowed the
waters of the Atlantic. We had beau
tiful weatheruntil very near the end
of the voyage, then came a most terrific
storm that would have sunk all on
board had it not been for the captain.
Every-spar was laid 'low, the rudder
was utmost useless,. and a great leak
had shown itself, threatening to fill the
'ship. The crew were all strong willing
men, and the mates ' were practical
seamen of the first class; but - after
pumping one whole night, and still the
water was gaining on them, they - gave
up in despair, and prepared. to take to
the 'boats, though they might have
- known that no small boat could
ride such a se ; The captain, who
had been below with his charts now
came up. He aw how matters stood,
and with a v lee that I. heard distinctl
above the r iar Of the tempest, lie or
dered every man to his post..
It was surprising to see all those men
bow before the strong will of their cap
tain, and hurry hack to the pumps.
The captain then started below to ex
amine the leak. As he passed me, 'I
asked him if the - 0 was any hope. He
looked at me, ti , n at the other passen
gers, who ,had et wded up to bear the
reply, and said, febukingly :
`Yes, sir, tber is hope as long as ono
inch of this deck _remains aboVe water.
When I see none of it, then I shall
abandon the vessel, and not before; nor
one Of my crew, sir. Everything shall
be done to save it, and if we fail, it will
not be from inaction. Bear a hand,
every one of you, at the pumps.'
Thrice (luring the day did we despair;
but the captain's dauntlesS courage, per
seVerance and powerful' will mastered
every mind on board, and- we went to
work again.
' I will land you safely at the dock in
Liverpool,' said lie,'if you will be men.'
And he did land us safely; but the
vessel sunk moored to the dock. The
Captain stood on the deck of the sink
ing vess.el, receiving the thanks and
blessings. of the passengers as they
passed down the- gang-plank. 1 wa.

Various plans were rejectid. One
gentleman proposed that I shoed he
tied down so that I eoodent bit at the
likker, and that he shood do the hon
ors. His nose wuz agin him and I de
elined; his proposishen. Finally I hit
upon the plan. I calkilated that twen
ty gallons would anser,
and I put that
amount in a barrel, T i tle balance uv
the stock I locked in a room, and then
put 'the key away in the drawer.
There' sed I triumphantly, 'afore

be too far gone to know where the key

It resultid ez I anticipatid. At first

Rev. D. a Methodist minister stationed.
at Meadville, some two years age, one
evening *e, ceived a note informing him.
.that a couple living in the suburbs of
the city deslied to be united in the
bonds of matrimony, and requested his
services at, 111110 o'clock in the morning.
At the proper time he went to the house
designated. He inquired of a young
lady who was busy 'washing dishes, if
there was a couplelhere who wished to
get married.
' I am the lady,' she replied, blushing.
'John will be In in a moment.'
The minister was surprised to see- no
Preparations, and stepped to the door
to see the • surroundings. Two men
were busily engaged in grinding scythes
in the yard, and another, who proved
to be 'John,' was tending a cow- and
calf. The young lady came to the door
pretty soon and shouted :
John, John, hurry up ; the preach
er's here !,
John leaped the fence and rushed to
the house, the girl wiped her hands on
her apron, and after joining hauds, said
they were ready. The . minister _pro
ceeded, and had just - got through ques
tioning the young man, when the old
lady rushed into the room, shouting:
`John, John, you didn't turn the cotta
away from the calf I'
He let go his sweetheart's hand ins,
stantly, and rushed into the barnyard,;?,
put the old cow through the bars, and
then returned, to the house, again tocik
his - place when the remainder - of the
ceremony waa performed. The minister
went on his way rejoicing, John went
to'the bay field, and the lady resumed
her digh-washing.—,-Forest (Pa.) Repub

A few days ago, on. board the Express
Train of the Philadelphia and Reading
Railroad, bound southward under the
Charge of conductor Frescoln, were a
young lady. and gentleman Seated to
gether, bearing the appearance of a
couple, recently married,_ or wishing
most heartily they were. It - was ob
served bythe passengers thht the lady
had,on her lips a bit of black court plas
ter—probably she had a soar lip. This
was noticed before the train had entered
the channel at Phoenixville, which is
1930 feet. After the train had passed
the tunnel the passengers saw another
sight! For lo !• the black court plaster,
by some hocus pocus, had changed'lips,
and now the young man 'had it bad.
The mysterious changing of the plaster
became the subject- of conversation
among the other passengers, and all on`
board indulged in a hearty laugh, as
light began to draw upon their won
derings. Light began also to draw
upon the minds of the couple, when
the train stopped at Phcenixville, and
violent blushing ensued. The ques
tion is, 'What happened'in the tunnel.'
