pression that the fruit crop in tale region has

Grass, which is, after fill, our beat bold, never
looked better. Oats and - potatoes never fail here;
and corn, if it can be coaxed out of the • ground
ear enough to be hoed in June, always " comes,"
By the way, it is an excellent plan to put enough
Corn in a loose muslin bag for a second plantings
and bury it in the ground about a week or ten
days after planting the corn crop. It will sprout
and be all ready Jo come up quickly, in case the
first planting Should be out down by frost. And
it is a capital way to sprout corn for

up quicker than anything we ever tried—except
a flock of long-toed hens, with which we are ex
perimenting the present season,—sucoesefully, so
far; though the experiment—at the auggeation
Of Our neighbers—rather takes the direction of
Pet -pies, just at present.
En peasant, our Waltonians have gone to the
glens- and hollOws wherein, and adown which,
the cool trout streams foam and dash. • We are
of, but not with them. We sit here, hating our

and responsibilities, wishing all honest men might
be rich enough to hunt or fish when they please;
swearing inwardly to r shoot a deer and catch ton
pounds of trout—" as occasion shall serve."—
" Kite," " Charley," "Hi," the " Cap'en," and
others, are doing it to the speckled ones this
blessed minute. We could give a shrewd guess
as to the flies they will find most taking this hot
afternoon'and evening of the last Saturday that
over was---brit we shall not be there: "The pity
of it, jago, the pity of it."
We saw them start off—the happy villi ans—
with rods, baskets, ole clo'ea, anid—groecries,
We bear no malice; we wish them success; and
we will give them a neat local notice anent the
splendid mess of trout which they— —are going
to " lay on our table."
P. S. Notice next week.
A STONE-PLANK QUA.IIII.Y.—A curl
ous and valuable quarry has recently been dis
covered and opened on the farm of Mr.'llual
Bartlett, some twtt hundred rods north of Mains
burg. This may 'e literally described as an im
mense deposit of 'stone plank. It covers some
six acres, and the Stone aro found ready for uso—
smooth, true, of uniform thicknOss, and in slabs
of more than 20 feet long by 16 feet in width,
told from ono to three or four inches in thickness ;
etich stone, however, preserving its thickness as
neels/ as if sawed out by machinery. The stone•
is very sound in texture, even in grain, and,
, en first taken from the quarry, soft enough to
ivbrk easily, though it soon becomeilike hard
gray granite on exposure to the atmosphere. It
is ti.'fliet bard to account for, that the edges of
these large slabs are as true in most of the speci
mens as though worked out: by-41._ekillfal atone
el:liter. They aro easily reduced to any -desired
ise, without brA.Ln....... -- + ••
site without breakage ; and the stone indeed '
pear to be very tough ; a load of these stabs hay
ini been brought to this village last week over
tbk) rough mountain road between here and Mains,
burg, without injury. They were twelve feet
long by four in width, and one inch thick; al
in st as smooth as though planed, and without
v r i p or wind. They were quickly bought by our
11 ow townsman; F. K. Wright ; and any one
y see how the thing works—for a walk—by
ling at his residence.
heritT Fish informs us that be examined this
trry, at a point where these slabs were in lay
twenirseren deep, large enough to square six
feet, and of. a uniform thickness of two in-
lot of these slabs has been sent .to Corning,
t an order from the George Washington bank,
re they are to be used as flagging. And Ele
i Pomeroy, of Troy, on seeing specimens from
quarry, ordered $5OO worth of them.
Iy . r. Bartlett has taken a skillful stonecutter
intopartnership, (Mr. L. B. Austin,) and this
stone-plank mine—for such it is—bids fair to be
-a ftirtune for its owner.

The lecturer was most happy in his Toy:A:ling

As the lecturer, with a fine appreolation'ef his
author, dilated on the notable phase of the sat
ire, that the mast arrogant wearer of boots is the
man who pulled them on for the first time but
yesterday, we noticed the Hon.'s Miss Wiggles
and Mrs. Waggles exchanging nudges and winks
—induced, of course, by a keen appreciation - of
the satirist's wit, and the leeturet'e rendering of.
the same ;—because, here in the backwoods,
where our richest village millionaire would
scarcely out up into vest-pocket-change for an
average gold broker in Wall street, we aro all

from integrity, intellect and good behavior. Jim

pulled on boots for the first time, yesterday.

SIAIC SOC/lITY Of Wellaboro :
The Society was organized in the fall of 1869,
and started out by giving a free coarse of home
lectures, delivered by volunteer speakers. It
was our pleasure and privilege to bear most of
,the efforts of the various speakers, And it is no
tlattery,when ,we, confeas,,to astonishment thst
men of Intelligence, with a few weeks' desultory
preparation, could come so Irery near the popular
lecturers of the day.
The Society is incorporated, is composed. of
fifteen or twenty young men, and has,for its ob
jects : improvement and eultivation of public
taste in literature, innocent and profitable enter
tainment for long winter evenings, and the estab
lishment of a public library, so soon as the funds
of the Society will warrant the attempt. During
the lecture season just closed, there has been a
course of leeturerdelivered here, that we do not
believe another village of the same size in the
State would, or could, support. This is mainly
.due to the onerky and executive ability of the
Harmaic committee, whose names we are reques
ted not to mention ; but all our (Athena know to
whose efforts the success is mainly dub.
It is not uncommon for an inland city of eight
or ten thousand inhabitants to find itself in debt
for a leCture course, to the extent of two to five
hundred dollars. Some forty-five of our leading
citizens, having doubts as to the possibility-, of
making a lecture course pay expenses, signed an
agreement to make all pecuniary -delleiencies
good at the end of the season. The expenses
slightly exceed the receipts; but a dollar from
each signer will cover the deficit. Ttukentire
affair is highly to the credit of our modest' little
