Just seveiteen! the sunlight throws
Its beauty on tlee ow;
And plensures dance amid the beams
That burn upon thy brow.
Bright friendship clusters in thy way
Like e:rapies upon the viine:
0! that they ever imiglit remains.
And o'er thy pathway shine.
Just seventeen! The bowers are green,
'I imat woo thee to thbeir shades;
Amd in the distance, flow ers ofjoy,
Bedeck the blooiming glider;
Hope's brilliant meteor shines afar.
And tids thee ha.te too share,
The glory i mmiatuirer yeamrs,
That thy fair form may wear.
Just seventeen ! The tempter's wiles.
Thy glowing path bestrew.
And fashiomi's false delnsive star,
Thy haiii y heart mam1.y woo.
Ani iii the gil.led halls of jride.
Lured by its treaci'rons light,
Thon'lt fimid tow sooi, in folly's race,
That paii succeeds delighL
Just seventeen! True wisdow waits,
To place thee iem her throne,
Where g,-ims of1pire st brilliancy
Have ever rieh0y shome.
Then go, an.! at her princely feet,
Seek for the robe of white.
Which weriing, thu may'ct surely win,
A throue oh enidle..s lighlt.
A pen-to register; a key
That winds thromgh secret wards:
Are well assigmed to M3emory
By allegore Bards.
As aptly, also. might be givem
A penicil to her hamnd;
That. softeing ,bects, sometimes even
Outstrips the heart's demanmd ;
That simooths foregotne distress, tihe lines
Of bmngerinig care smt~uhdes,
Lomig vanishmed happiness refines,
Amid clothes int bt ighter hues:
Yet. like a stool of Fancy, works
Those Spectres to dilate
That startle Coinscien< e, as she lurks
Within her lonmely seat
O fthat our lives, which Acve so fast,
Jim pumrity were smuch,
That not an immag'e of the past
Soukd fcar that pencil's touch !
Retirement then might hourly look
Upmon a soothinig scene,
Age steal to his allotted nook,
Cuntenmied anad serente;
With heart as calm as Lakes thait sleep,
In frosty mmoalighmt glistemnitg;
Or tmunittaitn Rivers. where they creep
To their owni hir-off murmmura listenming.

Il'the story he trtte. as the Heathens relate.
That Jove showered down a whole haidrn
And left them to sr.ramble their best for a innte
'Mlongst the bodies that wandet'd betweer
the two poles.
Your nnfo--rtuinate watit we canl early explain
For what senisible spirit, beholding yom
Would not rather a shelterless rover remain,
Thuu to wear a waesp's form, with the face

A SERVANT OF SERVANTS.
A tnaster one day. his apprentice was chiding.
\nd a rattan just rai.sting to give hiin a hiding:
When the poor fellow found that his sits and
C61,1h nothinug avail him; he mainfilly cries
- I'm a servant ol' servatts, and that's a sore
1' a servati toyiin,sir-id ynt to the devil.'

U! OF SUCKERS ON CORN.
11n Mr. Editor:-Ju the last ntumiber of the
rn Cabinet, in your article on the " Agricul
ur tural Survey" of the coutry about Pedee,
you seem to regard the lit. of Suckers onl
Corn bearing Ears at their proper places.
as lefore unknown to you; and you ask.
if it is not one of the peculiarities of the
t Corn cultivated by Col. Williams, in pro
I ducing suckers hearing ears? I can easily
er answer that question by observing. that it
is not pecnliar to Col. Williams' species of
Y Cort, unless his and mine are the sante.
" which I think scarcely probable; and it
c has been my settled conviction fron sone
le years close 'bservation, that Indian Corn.
be when there is a superfluity of strength inl
I? the soil tir itse.own wants, will send out
suckers, which, if suffered to remain. will
Snot, unly do no injury to the parent stalk.
d- but wil, inl corn and blades. produce mcore
id than the original %talk withont them. That
e this is no newly fornied opinion of mine,
*, vot canl, by referring to tihe June niuber
le of the Siomihern Agricilturist fir 1839, and
O in an article on this subjeci. see that I
i eaine to the same conclusion from tmy first
et year's oh-,ervation.
e Corn highly innured, when not plated
too ttii-k, will begin to send mit sockers
when about frot six inches to kiee iith,
and if those early enekers a e sutffred to
remain. and if the field is well cultivated.
they will grow lf i apidly. detach roots f
te their own. thotjnh they adhere still to the
V parent stalk ; tassel, shoO, and ripen. it
. he same tine ; and if the siacker-s alt
pear veryenrly tn the Corn, there is often
,1t some difficulty in discovering which is the
s, parent auil ,vbich the iiff-prinig.
In d3, I made the fairest experiment
that could be. with sckers. It was a (Irv
Spring, and a great anyaptpeared onl my
e mannttired Corn. it a fiel of thirty five
acres. I left eight rows lengthwise through.
S tit the field with the sutrkerson ; fin the
e rest of the field I had them taken away;
. and I was l1illy satified with the result of
that trial, that I had never taken them
. away from tmy Corn sinee. The quanti
ty ol loddler was so much greater ihai up
f:o the adjoiiig rows. that there could he
I 'tio doubt cof the propriety of leaving stick.

EXPERIMENT IN PL4NTING CORN.
A few weeks since we published a corn.
muuication from a correspondent, givit)g
the result of an experiment in planting
corn, by H. Massey, Esq. or this village.
Mr. Mnsiey called upon us the other day,
to correct au important error in said com
munclation, and invited us personally to
examine said field, which we accordingly
did, and now give the results of our obser
Mr. Massev took ofthe seed corn with
which he plaited the field, a small quan
tity. and soaked it in a solution of salt-nii.
tre. commonly called sali-petre, and plan
ted five rows with the seed thus prepared.
The remainder of the field, we believe,
was 1heird by the tane individual. Now
for the result. The five rows were un
touched by the worms, while the remain
der of the field suffiered severely by their de
predations. We should judge that not
one kernel saturated by salt-petre was
touched, whle almost every hill in the ad
joinin rows suffered severely. No one
who will examine the field can doubt the
efficary of the preparation. He will be as.
tonishel at the striking difference between
the five rows and the remainder of the field.
Here is a simple fact, which if seasotna
bly twl generally known, would save ma
nv thouiands of dollars to the farmers df
t he country for corn. It is a fact, which
should he universally known, and is, in all
probbility one of rhe ereatest discoveries
of modern time., in the neglected science
of agrienhitre. At all event,, the experi
ment .boubl be extensively tested, as the
results are deemied certain, while the ex
pense is comparatively nothing.
American Bed Blankets. -The Bostot
Trans'ript says, the Rochester hed blan
ketoA, fromu the extensive works of the Me
ehanies' Matinfacturing Company, Ro

of the kind for beauty nnd perfection ever

Interesting to Bachelors.-It is stated in
the Charlottesville Jeffersonian that the
Legislature of Virginia is literally Hooded
with petitions for divorce. One npr iin
paiss "a general law, divorcing every cou
ple in the State, with leave to such as are
diiposed to re-marry." This proposition
is certainly "revolutionary and disorgan.
Such a law would make fine times for
the parsons though. It would also pro
vide glorious treatment for the wives.
There would he no wonings and prornises
of better behavior. Old Colons would be
come young swain.; again. moonlight
walks, and iender civilities would be all the
fashion-in short, snch a law. on some ac
rounis woull bejust the thiaig. On others,
perhaps. it tnight not answer so well, and
that reminds us of an old anecdote. At
a time when divorces were to be had of
the Kentucky Legislature for the mere
asking, some wag procured the passage of
a hill to divorce an old couple who had
never dreamed of such a thing. The aged
worthies were aghast at hearinrg or their
separation. and were remitted within the
hour fron the titne they heard of it. In
3lassachusene, where it takes a fortnight
at the least, to get married, such a case
would have been desperate.
A Lament.-The editor of the Daily
Bulletin, St. Louis. thus laments in his
maper of the 31. 'tlt.- We offer as an
apology for the lack of our usual quantum
01f editori-d matter-private businsss. Our
tafliee h':s btetn thronugetd for several days
with tc betmost hideous looking characters,
but at the samtte time the poliIest men in
the w,,rbi. * Here is a smnll bill-he glad
if you would settle it to-day,' says a little
heardlless rascnl. * Have you made out
suir arcout yet t-Here is your bill-he
ulad if you coutld give us the little balance
this mottintg,' says a Merchant on WVater
street. 'and if you can pay me for that
coat 5o0t will mueh olige a sufferer,' &c.
&c.- Zounds ! thte. infernal scampus have
kept us in a fever for the last t wo or three
dlavs. But there is one cottsolation-we
ha've t wo as polite and savage looking
clerks out, csontinually, as any that visit us,
playitng the samue gamue; b~ut we are sorry
to say that thtey are seldom :oinnerg.

An Affectionate Son.-The Centraville
(Md.) ientinel ofthe9th inst. says:-"Mr.
Trhotmas Nsvill, living~ in the upper part
of Queen Ann's county, died a few days
ago fromn a 'cut across the abdomen, given
to hitt by his father. Mr. Jonathan Nevill.
Report says, tat the son was attempting
to tie his fat her to inflict persontal chastise

self the father cut hlim.'' Those who have
