I went to seek for Christ,
And Nature mmM so fair.
That first the wood and Holds my youth euticed,
And I was sure to find him thorei '
The temple I foreook,
And to the solitude
Allegience paid i but Winter came and shook
Tho crown aad purple from my wood
His snows, Itko desert sands, with scornful drift,
Besieged the eolumn'd asile and palace gate:
My Thebes, cut deep with many a solemn rift,
But epitaph'd her own sepulchred state
Then I remember'd whom I went to seek,
And bless'd blunt Wintor for his eouusel bleak.
Back to the world I turn'd,
For Christ, I said, is King ;
So tho cramp'd alley and the hut I spurn'd,
As far beneath his sojourning)
'Mid power and wealth I sought,
But found no traco of him,
And all the costly offerings I had brought,
With sudden rush and mould grew dim I
I found his tomb, indeed, where, by their Inws,
All must on stated day them sol res imprison,
Mocking with bread a dead creed's grinning Jaws,
v itless how long the life had thence arisen j
Due sacrifice to this they cut apart,
Prising it more than Christ's own living heart.
So from my feet the dust
Of the proud World I shook j
Then came dear Love, and shared with me his crust.
And half my sorrow's burden took.
After tho World's soft bed,
Its rich and dainty fare,
Like down seem'd Love's coarse pillow to my head,
jus cheap food seem d as manna rare;
Fresh trodden prints of bare and bleeding feet
Turn'd to the heedless city whence I enme,
Hnrd by I saw, and sprints of worship sweet
Gush'd from my cleft heart, smitten hv tho same-.
L,ove loolt d me in the faco, nnd spako no words,
uui straight I knew those foot-prints were tho
I follow'd where they led,
And in a hovel rude,
With nought to fence the weather from his head,
The King I sought for meekly stood.
A naked, hungry child
Clung round his gracious knee.
And a poor hunted slave look'd up and smiled
iu bless the smile that set him free:
Aow miracles I saw Ins presence do
No moro I knew tho hovel bnre and poor j
The gathcr'd chips Into a woodpilo grew,
1 ho broken morsel swcll'd to goodlv store i
knelt and wept ; my Christ no more I seek .
His throne is with the outcast and the weak.
Tho French are an ingenious people; none are
more so. They are but littlo behind tho rest of
mankind in anything, and greatly abend oi them
with respect to somo things. They aro the greatest
people in tho world at revolution making, and
rather the worst in the world, we think, at .mm.
metit making. They can unmake a government
and soud it adrift in a dnv, or an hour. The revo
lution against Louis Philippe required but a fow
minutes to be complete. But after about sixty
five years of exporiuient, and after fifteen or twenty
trials, they have at last achieved nothing but a
military dospotisra founded on universal suffrage
j anomalous government now in ex
istence. But still the people seem to be satisfied
with it, either because they think they might go
further and fare worse, or because, hem
mont of their own choice, so they say, they make
a point ot honor to respect and obey it. All the
parties except the party in power the Bonnpart

FARMERS WIVES AND DAUGHTERS.
How our Revolutionary fore-motfer managed to
be such matches to our Revolutionary fore-Joiner
in health and heroism, wo never could rightly re
concile to the general condition of the sex in the
agricultural classes to which they belonged. Surely
they could not have been so overworked as our
farmers' wives are, at the present day nor could
thoir ni'.nds and manners have had so little chance
for eultlvation. It has been a "msggnt in onr
brain," for some time, to write on this subject
pleading for some recreation and some leisure in
tho farm-houses where these two blessings are not
petticoat belongings. But our friend of the Amer
ican Ayrintltnrut has anticipated us. A corres
pondent of his thus sensibly discourses on the
sunject : Hume Journal.
" I am a genuino farmer's daughter, as f told
you, and my experience is not at all an imaginary
one. We lived away out of the village, were sur
rounded by farm-houses, nnd our only neighbours
were farmers ; therefore I have a right to say I
know something about them, and how they live.
But I cannot say they were all to my taste, or that
they all had the refinement and cultivation which I
think it should be the aim of every class of people
to possess ; yot I do not know that, in more than
ono family, there grew up sons and daughters, with
all the pride of our country; and not only with re
finement, but elegance of mannors such as I have
rarely seen surjiossod in any circlo, in city or

ers' households lead a more toilsome nnd drudgery
kind of life than the men. and I think this Is trna.
One reason has ever been, that so little attention
has been paid to convenience in the construction of
tnose parts or the house where they must spend
most of their time, and where their Inbor must bo

the labour of the field. Many and many a farmer

PREPARING SEED CORN.

scepticism, forgetting tnat where nature proceeds

equally fortunate results. Tho moJue ojierandi it
reported by Mr. Wetmore. in hi nublished .
uouut, hi nave oecu as loiiuws:
"At noon of the day before planting. IRih r
Jiay, i put my seed corn to souk in a ntnm-Iao-.
tion of copperas water, say two pounds of copperas
to warm soit water sumcieut to cover a buslmi r,r
corn, ine next morning toon out a peck, added a
pint or more of soft soar, stirred it timrouirlilv
then put on plaster enough to make h eouventeut
for planting, say one quart. The whole fluid was
planted with the seed thus prepared. With the n.
oeptioB ot lour rows, wnwh wtrc planted with
seed without preparation. The after culture of
the whole was alike, passing through each way
with the cultivator twice. The four row last
mentioned rere eut up, harvested, and the corn
weighed and measured by itself; also, four rows
noxt adjoining, the seed of which had been pre
pared as above. The produce of the four rows
from the unprepared teed, was eleven bushels and
a half. The produce of the four rows from the
prepared seed, was seventeen bushels a difference
of five and a half bushels of ears in one hundred
and twenty hills 1"
It takes about six quarts of corn to plant an
aero, at the usual distances, aay three and a half
feet each way t so that for six quarts of seed corn,
six ounces of copperas would be required an
ounce to a quart is near enough as a general rule.
Wheat growers and gardeners well know the value
of liming wheat, and steeping garden seed where
they desire an early and vigorous growth. A lit

give it such a start as to keep it in advance of oth

We can see this in the fields of smaller grains,
where a plant which started earlv and vicorouslv
