facts in tfce case ? The sheep arc about as
much alike as a ncgro aud a white nian, for
they are bothof Adam's race, and these two

The fact in the case is that neither of the

He was raised fromanewepurchasedon Long

tome Paular blood in lier, aud sired by a buck
which I purchased of the Hon. Wm. Jarfis
of Weathersfield this State; he was purchas
ed when a l.imb eight years ago.
It is well known that Mr. Jarvisimported5
kinds of merino sheep some 25 or 30 years
since, and that one or these kinds was Paular.
Mr. Jarvis has not kept the diflerent varieties
separate and distinct, but mixed them toceth-
er, and bred his full blood merinos in th"i3
style. After breeding many yearsin tliis mix
d manner, I purchasea the sire of Jewett's
Fortune. Luckily, itseems my buck turncd
out to be pure Paular, or else his progeny
uetter than he. (Juery! Mr. Kandall as
serts that " a Paular without his ruflle would
be like a tchilc Berkshire nobody would give
credit to his pedigrce." By the ruffle is meant
a huge dewlap, extendins from the jaw to the

Before laking tip thc third point that I have
particularly in view, I wish to notice some
othcr statements, made by Mr. Randall in his
communication in the Cujtivator, and one is
relative to the eight of fleccc taken from
ycar to ycar from the buck Fortune. As
stated by Mr. Kandall it is as follows :
Don Pedro. Fortune.

!d year, Dlbs. -Soz. 12lbs.
3d ycar, l2Ibs. 13Ibs. 4oz.

is a blank. Mr. Jewett sheared him the -1th
year, from whom probably Mr. Kandall gets
his mformation. Has tliere not becn time
enougli for.Mr. Jewctt to inform Alr. Jianuall.'
Or did he forgct it when he gave the wcight
of Pcdro's llecce ? Or is there another reason
more probablc still and tim is the increase
ruus the wronc way to be published say
miuus some 3 pounds and over. If there had
been au increase as there ought to have been
at this age we should not have foiiud a blauk
for the fonrth clip. It may be said that he
was sheared or 3 weekssooner than last year.
Very wcll, how much must be allowcd for
that .' A half pound or evcn a pound and then
how docs it stand when added to ten pounds?
gam it may bc said he was sheared soou af
ter w ashing. Very well, just let us know how
he was washeu, whethcr in tlie nver or m

Alr. itandall wntes "Ihat Mr. Jewctt states
that the full blood yearlings of Forluucs get

avcr.ige bclwecn five and six pounds ofwash-1

husband and hcr child
This w as thc natural rcsolution of an af
fectionatc woman, ofawoiuau whose soul
wns bound to that of hcr husband, not by the
ordmary ties of law, but by that tlivinc chaiu
which should cvef link the hearts of wcddcd
bcings of a womau cstctnning cxistcnce but
for thc ciijoyment of hcr hashaiid aud hcr
son, iu whose happincss slie livnl, nnd iu
whose dcath she could tlic, nor wish to Iivo
when those should bc torii lium hcr. It was
thc natural impulse ofa wifc's alTcctioti, that
iuduccd Christiiie to follow thc hasty niarch
of thc dcspoilcrs of hcr homc that impulse
which we sec so oftcn cxcrtcd, but too fre
ipiently without avail: too often is the hcro
ism of womau dcspiscd, too oftcu thc dignity
of hcr charactcr contcmiied, and hcr iutrc
pidity laiighcd to scorn. Christinc arrivcd
at thc camp, she made hcr way through the
rcvelliug soldicry, and fell dircctly at thc fcct
of thc commaiiihng oiliccr, and stretchiu out

She hastily turncd from the oflicer in in

tone cxclaimed, ' Christinc is a Polish wife
and knows her duty !'
'Ay,' rejoined Wrclschoff, 'butChristineis

Christiiie hcsitated a moment as she con

aud its probablc cffccts, but as instantly as
