OLD AND BLIND.
itsllant Gray-beard can't you se•■
You unconscionable bat, yon —
While yon play the devotee.
That the girl is laughing at yon
You m. handsome in .our day,
You are well preserved and thrifty,
And your manners, one may say.
Are superb, but—you are fifty !
!>o-'t he foolish, now you're old.
Flirting in this feeble fashion,—
Trying on a hearth grown Cold
To relight a boyish passion.
You have had your day of youth.
With its tender freaks afid fancies «
You have known a woman's truth,
An.l have lived Love's sweet romances.
Ay. I know her lips are read ;
True, her curls are black and glossy ;
Yes, she bears a dainty head,
And her eyes are sweet and saury.
But she knows voii net apart,
Whlleyon try to tease and please her.—
Knows, Old Make Believe, yonr heart
Is as il?ad as JiiliiisCnsar;—
Knows it, though a simple girl.
And is laughing while you linger ; —
Knows I. well, and, like a curl,
Windi you round her jeweled finger!
But if you must act a pari:
If yon cannot drop your feigning.
Feign yon have not In your heart
Such a thing as love remalni-g.
Come and sLmdwith me, my friend,—
She'll penult you—never doubt her !
Do as I do, and pretend
Not to care a tig about her!

WASinwi _.»., March 89, 1574.
The "Woodlawn .Farmers Club," of
Fairfax county, is one of the most flourish
ing and most intelligent body of men and
women to be found in Virginia.
On last Saturday lhey held their regular
monthly meeting for March, on invitation,
at the residence of J. W. Cox, Esq., in this
city. The event was one full of interest and
enjoyment and largely attended by both
men and women.
(.'halkley Gillingham, the president, oc
cupied the chair, and N. W. Piersons was
secretary.
Alter opening business, the critical
committee made instructive report on the
condition of the farm of "our host."
The subject of underdraining was largely
discussed, and by nearly all present admit
ted lo be an operation of great benefit to
f-iniing prosperity.
A model for a new invention to . tecr
Steam and other ships was exhibited a:id
explained by Captain , Ihe inventor,
and much admired as an ingeni.us and
handsome machine.
At this point the host announced dinner,
when a handsome and bountiful meal was
enjoyed by the entire company.
Upon reassembling in tho pleasant par
lors, various cheerful conversation was in
dulged, after which the subject of peaches
and peach trees was discussed. A mem
ber asked what were the best sorts to be
grown in Fairfax county. The president,
secretary, Warrenton Gillingham, and
some others made suggestions in reply, and
finally gave the following names as desira
ble sorts: Troth's Early, Mi.xton Cling,
Smocks, Stump th- World, Lagrange,
I'rocket, and some otbers.
John H. King had had many years ex
perience iv fruit-growing ; thought high
and dry lands the best for peaches.
Warrenton Gillingham said west and
north sides of hills wore most favorable for
fruit trees, as the sun would not strike
ihem so severely.
In answer to tbe question about the La
grange and Crocket peaches, D. S. Curtiss
answered that la>t fall a quaotily of these
two kinds were mixed together, and they
could not be distinguished, so near alike
were they in form, color and quality.
Several names were presented and elected
as now members of the society.
The subject of the Patrons of Husbandry
was suggested and discussed at some
length. David Ferris was not in favor of
the order, because it was a secret society
and in danger of becoming a political
party.
Warrenton Gillingbnm sjjoke in favor of
it as a necessity to help the farmers to
protection against monopolies.
Hilman Troth asked it it was not in
danger of falling into the hands of design
ing persons or wily politicians and be
used for personal ends. It was said by a
member that already a few scheming men
were beginning to contract for their own
gain. *
lln the request of a member, Colonel
Curtiss explained its high influence in an
educational and social point of view, and
its power to aitl the business operations of
the farmers.
Questions were asked as to farmers'
rights to sell their products in the streets
of Washington, which elicited some dis
eussioii, when, on motion, the chair ap
pointed a committee, of which J. W. Cox
is chairman, to make inquiry and report
at the next meeting.
Growing of corn antl vegetables was de
signated as the subject for consideration at
next meeting, and members requested to
come prepared to discuss the subject, with
presentation of experiments and fads, as
well as arguments.
After some routine business and appoint
ment of critical committee, the society ad
journed to meet at the residence of S. Pul
man, on the _.th of April next.
At the close of the club meeting, the
member- of the new Potomac Boat Com
pany present assembled in the parlor to
bear report of the committee. Hilman
Troth is uresideiit, and Captain Snowdcn
secretary^ Colonel Daniels, N. W. Pier
sons, John Harrison, Ed. Mason, W. Wal
ton, and some others, are among the sub
scribers ; and the appearances are highly
favorable and indicate that a fine, substan
tial new boat will soon banjiaking regular
Hips for the benefit, of farmers and citi
zens. Potomac.

Monday-, March 30.
Senate.— Mr. Hamlin presented a memo
rial asking relief on behalf of the commer
cial marine of the East from excessive
pilot tolls imposed on tho passage through
Hell Gate.
Mr. Scott presented sundiy petitions of
citizens of Pennsylvania, remonstrating
against re-enactment of duties on tea and
coffee.
The unfinished business being the bill to
provide for the redemption and reissue of
United States notes and for free banking,
was taken up.
House. —Under tho call of states for bills
and resolutions for reference only the fol
lowing, among others, were introduced and
relerred, viz:
By Mr. McDougall (N. Y.)—Hill to pro
vide for tho care and custody of persons
-onvieted in the courts of the United States,
By Mr. Ross (Pa.)— Bill to provide for

FARM -M> GARDES.
—A good coat of tar or ink around the
trunks of fruit trees will protect them from
insects.
—Straw should be cut short before be
ing thrown into the barn-yard for manure,
as it will the more readily absorb the
liquids and rots much sooner. Short
straw makes better bedding than long
straw.
—Now is the time to prepare for garden
work. Get your seeds selected and ready
for use. Mark out your plans tor tho va
rious kinds intended to be used. Get the
rubbish off your garden that all may bo in
readiness to p'ow and prepare the ground
for the seed; thus you will be enabled to
get seeds in early and realize an early yield
of vegetable).
—Bran or shorts ate more valuable for
feed than hay. While timothy is worth
twenty-eight dollars per ton, shorts are
worth eighteen. The manure from a ton
of bran is worth fifteen dollars ; that from
timothy or corn is worth seven dollars:
that from a ton of clover, ten dollars; that
from a ton of straw, two or three dollars.
The farmer can readily calculate the differ
ence.
—Mr.T. B. Rogers, of W ethersfield, re
ports lhat his thirty-five Brahma hens
produced 050 pg»s during the month of
February, which is 158 more than the same
fowls laid in January, and February is a
short month 1.0. Mr. Rogers hopes to
make the number 1,000 for March.—Mid
dletoum Constitution.
—The agricultural make-up of the Pal
mer (Mass.) Grange is peculiar. The mas
ter is a horny-headed lawyer ; the steward
is connected with a carpet company; the
assistant steward is a druggist; the over
seer is a doctor; the chaplain is a dry
goods merchant; the treasurer a dentist;
the secretary a hardware dealer. The gate
keoperand his brother are the only original
members about whom the odor of new
mown hay has ever lingered.
—Farmers and gardeners should not
delay a moment to hunt and destroy the
insects that infest the orchard and garden.
Tent caterpillar's eggs arc more readily
removed than the young after hatching.
The female canker worm ascends the tree
on mild days to deposit her eggs. Any
thing fastened around the tree properly
will prevent the worm from ascending,
such as strips of paper with tar or printer's
ink. Troughs containing petroleum will
prove an effectual barrier.
—M. J. B. says he has a horse that is
subject to a hacking cough, and wants to
know what to do for it. The best remedy
is good care, good old oats and old hay ;
careful and regular exercise, but not sweat
ing the horse if it can be helped, and cool
ing out carefully, if sweated, so as not to
take cold. If medicine is needed, give
twenty grains of iodine of sulphur in two
diachms of powdered gentian in his food,
daily, for a couple of weeks; and then
once or twice a week afterwards for a
month or two, and tho cough gradually
gives way.
—Indian meal as a fertilizer is enthusias
tically recommended by a New Jersey farm
er, lie says it is superior to Peruvian
guano and not half so costly. He has
tested its properties on potatoes, grass,
and wheat with excellent results, and re
commends farmers generally to try it for
themselves. Applied in hills of corn it
had lemarkable effect in stimulating
growth, tho same as guano, and like the
latter it had killed the corn when in con
tact with the glwing germ. Tho stimula
ting effects of Indian meal must be owiug
to the nitrogenous elements contained in
it. Its consistence in a One powder ren
ders it speedy of decomposition and ouick
in action.
j^ A simple and efficacious plan to utilize
mt\ manure is to gather some peaty soil,
dry it thoroughly in the sun, and store it
away in a dry place. With this, dust the
house floor well two or three times a week,
and one. a week-sweep it out clean, and
store in a dry place. You can thus pre
vent the manure from emitting any offen
sive smell, keep the hen house perfectly
sweet, and have a very valuable manure.
Treat Ji he stable in a similar manner, ex
fi'ii! that it be cleaned out daily, and
sufficient is put down to absorb the urine,
a very important item, usually not only
lost, but allowed to become a nuisance tn
man and beast.
—Rhodes& Server, produce commission
merchants, 36 Whitehall street, New
York, issue the following advice to pro
ducers: "The main objection to tho su
gar coming to this market is that it is
black and dirty looking, caused by soot
falling in it when boiling, and dust and
leaves falling in Ihe sap while under the
trees. How can this appearance be
avoided without, adulterating the sugar?
The remedy is simple and will surprise
you when tried, viz: When the sap has
boiled to about half the consistency of
syrup, add to quantity required to make a
pound of sugar, a tahlespoonful of new
sweet mill; ; let it boil five or ten min
utes, and strain through a coarse linen
cloth. The milk collects all tho fine par
ticles of dust and soot, and causes some
to remain in the cloth. In "sugar
ing off,'' if a scum arises it should be
carefully skimmed off. During the whole
time the syrup is boiling, after it begins
to bubble, and after being taken from
the fire, until cool enough to pour into
the moulds, it should be briskly stirred.
Small cakes and squares weighing a pound
each sell best. Sassafras spiles should
always be used in tapping the trees. Don't
use sumac. Tin pans are best to catch
the sap into ; if these cannot be obtained,
whitewood troughs may be used.
The advocates of the "New Money Sys
tem" are opposed to Senator Cameron's
billon Finance just deleated in the Sen
ate:
Because it would increase the power of
the money monopolists by loaning more
currency to them.
Because it would loan this increase with
out charge, whilst the producers of the
wealth of the country are ready to pay
at least four per cent per annum for its
use.
.Because it would increase the volume of
currency without providing a means of ab
sorbing any excess.
Because it proposes to issue more
money without fixing its value as the Con
stitution requires.
Because, in a word, it violates, greatly
to the injury of the people, the spirit of that
portion of the Constitution which requires
Congress to coin money only for the use of
the whole people and not for a favored
few.
The friends of the "New Money System"
want:
That there should be no monopoly in
money except by the Government for the
good of the whole.
That Congress should authorize the
issue of as much money to bo loaned on
Government bonds or individual wealth
backed by the Government, as will enable
laborers to be paid in legal tender green
backs for their services —not only those in
' centres of industry, but those remote as
well—and as much as will enable the trad
era of the country to buy for cash, so that
the difference between cash and credit
prices maybe saved.
That Congress should create nn inter
changeable bond to absorb the excess of
trouey when industry cannot use it at
about four per cent per annum.
That Congress should regulate the value
of money and in the only way it can bo
regulated, viz:—by fixing the interest, and
at a rate not exceeding the annual rate of
increase of the wealth of the land.
The New York Tribune says
''that the business of the Chesapeake and
Ohio Railroad is very encouraging. At
its western terminus there is a well
arranged line of steamers connecting with
Cincinnati. Tho great need of the compa
ny is an independent line of steamers
from Richmond to New York. * *
The Baltimore and Ohio Railroad have a
branch road tapping the Chesapeake and
Ohio at Staunton. Should the present man
agement of the latter road continue in de
fault on the interest of their bonded debt
it is understood lhat the Baltimore and
Ohio Railroad will not bo averse to be
coming proprietors of the Chesapeake and
Ohio at a price that would fully protect
tho holders of the first mortgage loans.
Should that event transpircßaltimore would
become the eastern terminus of the road,
and have the advantage of n large business
that will inevitably come to the owners of
this substantial railway.''
Mk. Sener has introduced a bill lo
amend the bankrupt act. Congress by
two acts has legalized homestead exemp
tion in lta application to bankruptcy cases,
but Judge Bond, who as United States
judge of the Circuit Court exercises super
visory authority over bankrupt cases in the
United States District Court, decided these
laws unconstitutional. The effect of Mr.
Sener's amendment will be to allow to
these bankrupts in Virginia a right of ap
peal to the Supremo Court, which they are
now denied. While the application of this
amendment is general, it will work a
special result in Virginia, as Judge Bond is
the only United Slates .judge who has de
cided the laws unconstitutional.
It is a pity to have one of Mr. Evarts'
good stories mangled by the reporters, as :
is the case in the reports of his anecdote
about a donkey, told at Harvard meeting
last night. The story was as follows : A
few summers since Mr. Evarts, at the ur
gent request of one his younger daughters,
sent up to his country place in Vermont a
donkey for her use. She had read about
donkejs, but was not familiar with their
peculiar vocalism. The animal's strange
noises inspired her with the profoundest
pity for his evident distress. So she wrote
to her father. "Dear papa. Ido wish you
would come up hero soon ,\donkei/ is so lone
some.^ As Mr. Evarts renders this pa
thetic appeal, it is irresistible.
Cremation in New York.—Tt will
probably surprise most readers to know
that there are a number of persons in the
city really and zealously in earnest in the
effort to introduce the practice of burning
the dead instead of burying them. These,
gentlemen, or some of them, held a meet
ing last night at the office of Dr. Sexton,
in west Thirty-fifth street, with a view of
perfecting arrangements either for a large
meeting or some other form of demonstra
tion upon the public. They consider the
subject solely from a scientific and sanitary
point of view, and in that light it is cer
tainly a question deserving the fairest hear
ing.— New York Tribune.

Our market ia very dull under very heavy
receipts and ofterings, nearly all of which
is very inferior in quality. Our oldest buyers
insure us they have never seen a crop so poor In
quality as that portion of tho crop which has
reached this market. It is generally believed
here that our planters are holding back all their
best grades for spring order and prizing, and
only sending forward now their lowest grades.
When the quality of th. tobacco now being
offered is considered, we do not think there is
any cause for complaint as to the prices paid on
the part of the planters.
We renew oar quotations of __i- week, tho'.ig
there ts a tendency to lower prices.
