treatment more cruel, if possible, in
east of Scotland than elsewhere.
Nor are young. or even married
men, much hetttr ofl thanm the girls. .
ne Harris. aged 15. "heartily bated it.
It was no woman's work, nor is it go
for any body; but I am obliged to the work
as father hipwks (hows) the coals below."
Janet Dunchn, aged 17, "was a coal
bearer at Henmuir pit. The carts she
pusbed contained 3 rwt. of coals, and it
"was very severe wark cpecially wh.:a tee
haal to stay before the carts to prevent their
coming down 0too fast; they frequently run
too quick anid knock us down. Is able to
sa thut the ht;rdest duy-light work is in
finitely superior to the Iest of coal work.
Margaret Drysdale. aged 15, -did not like
the work, wit h-'r mother was dead, anid

choice. Iler employment is to draw carls,

fort on adequato idea of it without in
spccting the plates which represent it in
the piarliamentar) report.
Well may the report say, that "when
the nature of this horrible labor is taken
into consideration-it extreme severity
its regular duration of from 12 to 14 hours
daily-the damp, heated, and unwhole
some atmosphere ofa coal mino, and the
tender ago and sex of the workera-a pic
ture is presented of deadly physical op
pression ani systematic slavery, of which
I couscientiously believe no one unacquain
ted with such facts would credit the exis
tence in the British dominions."
Married women are chiefly employed in
filling. riddling, and carrying, and the Igbor
impo,ed upon them is excessive. The
reason given by one wit ness (he-rselt' mar
ried) why they undertake such work at all,
is -that if the w'men did not work below,
the children wouil. no't 6 ;own sooon."

Indian Pun.-One of the earliest settlers
around Lake Champlain. was Col. Edward
Ravmun. lie understood the character
and disposition of the natives of the forest,
and lived with them in much harnony;
frequently employing Them to row him up
and down the lake as lie had occasion. Oue
stout fellow by the name of Bigbear, had
his wigwam it no trent distance from the
Colonel's dwelling, and was "(ten there.
The Colonel, having occaion 1o vi~it some
distant shore of the lake. employed Biig

crotch stick from a bunch of hazels upon

Ravmun," said he as he clapped the crotch
astride the neck of a serpent that was
asleep close to tha edge of the water.
'Take utm now, linymaun; hold faS3."
The Colonel then took hold of the stick,
keeping the serpeut down, while Bigbear
tied up a little sack of powder, putting otne
end of a slow match therein. lie then
made it fast to the snake's tail and touched
fire t) the match, gave onlers to "let tim

One of most successful and intelligent
cittivators of the grape in this country is
Mr. Longworth of Cincinnatti. He. how
ever, has given upmostly, ifnot altogether.
the attempt to cultivate the European'
species. and has taken pains to procure
some of the best varieties ofthe indigenous
vine. There ara as Many dilerent kinds .
of the native grape as of the European. -
and our forests have been imperfecily ex
ploreil for the finest.
i the May nuher of the Iforticultu
rat Magazine. just published by I. Pos,
of thi city, is the following letter fromt
Mr. Longworth.-Neo York Post.
--I was surprised on reading a enema
nic:tion in your Mmznzine, (Vol. VI. p.
:11.) frorn an intellitet gentleman at
Mnrett?,. Ohio, in which he speaks of the
lqanella gralpe as the heet nativegrapecul
tiveted by them, and that they'mnenco -
n1ing i for the tabl-s as soon as itassumes
a redt color. I should suppose he alluded
fi t - lilanl Mnleira, did lie not speak of
that grape in a subsequent pait orhis letter.
I have ceased to cultivate-the Isabella "for
near twenty years, deeming It,-interior, as
a table and wine grape, to mast others.
He gives it the preference over the Ca
tairi-. as a table grape with us, It ripens
badly, and is subject to rot, and in its best
,ste far inferior to the Catawba either for
the table or for wine. I havehad bunches
or the Catawba to weigh twenty four oun
..I have a white variety of the Calawba.
nuI another Catawba producing fruit a
third larger than the Catawba of Adilum.
I say the Catawba of Adlud fur Mlajor Ad
lum was the first zo bring it into notice.
"I have three varieties of native grapes,
which I consider far superior to the Ca
awba for the table. They have none of
the hard pulp common to the Catawba,
"'"sancadel, and the Isabella.
will give five hundred dollars for a root of
a native grape that, in quality of the fruit
anti size of the bunch. shall surpass i.
The other two are equally good for the tao.
hie, perfectly hardy, greatgrower, but the
hunches of the fruit are not so large.
"I was surprised, when east. to find no
good aive grapes. At mydiffierentvine
yards. I have nbout sixty acres in grapes.
itt not all in he::ring. Last seasnn. I had
not hnlf a crop. with the exception of one
vineyard. vhere the rrtuit was abundant
anti fine. I made about two hundred bar
rels or wine and some brandy. I am now -
raising large ettainitics of vines from tho
seedt of my best varieties of native grape,
having cleared a piece of new land express
ly for that purpose.
&-The Bland grape is not a native. It
was introduced into Virginia frm France.
about fifty years since. by a French gentle
man, as I w'ns informed by General Har
rison. who knew the gensteman. and had
seen the fruit on his table, more than forty
years since. It is a good .ble grape, but
subject to mildew, ani does not always
ripen its wood or its fruit.
