ON THE DEATH OF G RENVILLE
BT MHS. E. J. JAMES.
Another harp is broken, and the strains that

trembled upon its strings are now heard in He
Another and another:
They arc going one by one :
The golden bowl is broken,
And life's silver thread is spun
In the perfect prime of manlood,
With its glory cn his brew,
And Fame's wreath upon his temples
Hut thai is nothing now !
:t i:r.v J l i
Nor bereak the solmcn, mystic seal, that on his
fine lip lies !
O chaste and sweetly beautiful
Were the breathings of thy lyre,
For Genius, like a living coal,
Had touched thee with its fire :
The light shed from thy musings
Had its birlh-plcce in thy mind,
Where all the finer faculties
Of Intellect were shrined.
O the World thy name is speaking its lament
for thee is loud
But thou can'st not hear its praises through the
foldings of the shroud.
Thou has put on the garments
Of the Redeemed in Heaven,
And the Harp whereon the Angels play
Hath to thy hand been given :
For the Poet's earthly laurel
For his bright but cold renown
Thou has won thine immortality,
And wcar'st a fadeless crown !
We will miss thy, sons O minstral ! from the
true barbs of our land
Ovrs is the loss, bnt Urine the pain, amid the shi
ningband. Eames Piece, Sept. 1S41.
J Gil 11 CLTURA L.
From ihe Missouri Farmer.
I am inclined to think that the piece on Berk
shire Hogs, in the August number, is a little ex
aggerated; although I am a great admirer of the
Berkshires, and have procured some, and have
become satisfied from experience that they are a
great improvement in the hog line ; and I now
haAe some of the pigs for sale, but I wish
not to deceive those who may buy. My expe
rience has resulted about as follows : Half
breeds will weigh 250, lbs. while 'long faces' will
weigh 200 lbs. on the same feed at the same time.
The China hog is nearly equal to the Berkshire
(frnEaHThff half breed of both) for the first 9 or
10 months, with Jimitcr! feed ; but the Berkshire
will eat more if he can get it, and will grow faster
in proportion as he cats. The Berkshire, like
the China, will be fit at any age, if well fed.
The Berkshires arc more brcedy than the China,
that respect, I believe no hogs excel them,
and pigs are hardy and thrifty when young.
Now, as I think I have taken fair ground on
whkh to reason before the firming community,
allow me to make some calculations, and I will
hardly fail to convince evejy stock-raising rea
der of the necessity of improving his breeds of
stock. My experience in Berkshire hogs shows
that 25 per cent, is saved by feeding half breeds
and 60 on full bloods, over scraps. Then allow
that you feed 100 hogs 18 months, you will feed,
to be rnott profiahle, at least 3000 bnshcls
elo of corn. If Berkshires, they will weigh on
an average 200 lbs. each ; aggregate, 30,000 lbs.
Allow your corn to be worth 20 cts. per bushel,
3000 bushels will be worth COO dollars. Then
by calculation you will find that your pork has
cost you two dollars per hundred. By the same
calculation, you will find that your scrub pork
has cost you three dollars per hundred, throw-

Foot Evit may be cured by pouring boiling
tar or tallow on it before it gets too far around
the hoof. This is a tolerable sevore applicetion,
but is a sure one. I don't know of any that is
milder, that will save the hoof. It then has to

The Swe5et may be remnved before it gets
bad, by frequent rubbings and bathings in spirits
of turpontine. But after it runs awhile and the
