GREAT NATIONAL WORK!
APPAN & DENNETT, 114 Washing
T ton street, Boston, proposes to publish,
by subscription, in fourteen monthly numbers,
at the low price of twenty-five cents each, the
BY JARED SPARKs.
Each number to contain between forty and fif
ty pages. and be embellished with the following
fine steel and copperplate engravings. viz.
1. Portrait of Washington at 40, by Peale,
2. do. Mrs. Washington at 26. by
3. View of Mount Vernon,
4. Battle of Braddock's defeat,
5. Head quarters at Cambridge,
6. Head quarters at Newburg,
7. Plan of farm at Mount Vernon,
8. Plan of Boston and environs,
9. Head quarters at Morristown,
.10. Battle of the Brandywine,
-11. Portrait of Washington by Stewart,
J2. Encampment at Valley Forge,
13. Battle at Germantown,
14. Fac simile of Washington's handwriting.
The portraits were copied from the original
paintings. The plans, sketches, and other en
gravinge, have been compiled from the best
rawing as well English and French as Amer
ican. Special aid was derived from a series of
manuscript drawings in the possession of Gen
eral La Fayette, which are executed with scien
tific accuracy and beauty.
The well known ability of the author, the
abundant means which he possessed. viz:
more than two hundred folio volumes of origi
nal manuscript, purchased by Congress, ten
years researches in the public offices in Lon
don. Paris, Washington, and in all the states
which formed the confederacy durng the revo
luttor-as well as the access he has gained to
valna te private papers in the different parts of
the country--have brought into his bands ma
terials, original and important in their charac
ter, which we trust will be found to have con
tributed essential aid in enabling him to execute
with more accuracy and completenesr his main
purpose. and thus to have compensated in some
degree for the time and labor they have cost.
- Its publication has not only involved extended
and laborious researches on, the part of the edi
tor, but great pecuniary responsibinties on the
part of the publishers.
The prices affixed to this work is less, when
the exertion is considered, than that of any
other publication in Europe or America. The
- investment and expenditures connected with
this undertaikinig are much greater than usually
attend such publication; anrd it will be appar

THE DRUNKARD'S DREAM.
"Who hath wo? who hath sotrowsl They
that tarry long at the wine."-Proverbs xxiii,
- O tempt me riot to the drunkard's dranght,
With its soul-consuming gleam!
0 hide mc from the woes that waft
Around the drunkard's dream!
When night in holy ailence brings
The God-willed hour of sleep.
Then, then the red-efed revel swings
Its bowl of poison deep.
When morning waves its golden hair,
And smiles o'er hill and lea.
Our sick'ning raty is doomed to glare
On yon rude revelry.
The rocket's flary moment sped.
Sinks black'ning back to earth;.
Yet darker-deeper sinks.his head
Who shares in drunkard's mirth !
Know ye the sleep the danokard knows?
That sleep, U who may tell!
Or who can speak the flendful throes
Of his self-heated hell !
The soul all reft of heav'nly murk
Defaced God's image there
olls down and dow,. yon abyss dark
To thy howhng home, Despair!
Or bedded his head upon broken hearts;
Where slimy reptiles creep;
While the ball-less eye of Death still darts
UMack fire on the diunikard's sleep.
And lo! their coffin'd bosoms rifi
That bled in his ruin wild !
The cold, cold lips of his shrouded wife,
Press lips of his shrouded child!
o fast-so dfeep the hold they keep ;
Hark his unhallow'd scream !
uard us. U God, f omn the dennkard's sleep
From the drunkard's demnon-dreatn!"
From the southaern PLanter.
BOMMER's M~tstE ?iETHOD PUT IN
We extract the following certificate of
the value ofthe manuure made by Bommer's
process from the last naumber of the Ctulti
rator.-We have in our own possession
the most satisfactory testimonials of its ef
ficiency in producing speedy decomposi
ion, and of the apparent valne of the man
ore. But nobody hereabouts has ye' had
an opportunity of testing its effects upon a
rop ; although no erne who has seen the
tnanure after it is made, seems to h ave any
doubts upon this point. As far as our in
formation and experience can go, the lime
reqnird to produce perfect decomposition
is rather underated. OIf course different
materials will be longer or shorter in rot
ting, but we rather thinik that the average
will require fromr four to six weeks.-But
our information is drawn from experiments
made during the last summer, when the
process was undoubtedly much retarded
by the excessive rains for which the season
was so remarkable.
Messrs, Gayjlord 4- Tucker.-Being a
subscriber and cohstant reader ofyour val
uable agricultuiral publication, I frequent
ly find there, arttcles on 'Bommer's Meth
od of Making Manure.' As these articles
are chiefly from the pens of agriculturalists
who have followed this method with entire
mcess, it affords me unfeigned pleasure
tdbe able, on my own behalf, also to beat'
testony to the value of this method. and'
throgtbe medium of your paper, to make
the resth of my experiments and opera
tions knowA to my fellow-citizens. This
' do, both ft the sake of bringing before
t. e pubict hn eat ael'nntages derived
from using the method spoken of, and the
benefits insured me by its application, and
at the'same time in order to render a deser
ted tribute tu the truth.
"On purchasing Bommer's. method last
spring, I immediately prepared a heap in'
presence of a few neighbors. I followed
strictly the directions laid down in Botn
mer's book. After the lapse of a fortnight,
the heap was opened- in the presence of a
number of farmers, and ourastonishrent
cannot be conoeived on seing the matamor
phosis which had taken place, es. we found
all those weedy and stramineous materials
of which the heap was constructed, re
duced ,to rich black manure, having an
ammoniac smell, much more pungent than
the best stable manure. Beholding so'
surprising a result, the farmers present for
med themselves into a public meeting, and
in that capacity nominated a Committee
from their midst, who were charged with
the preparation of a report of what we had
seen, to be sent to the agricultural press.
"1 ploughed in this manure into one-half
of a field intended for potatoes, and in or
der to institute a comparison of effects, I
put the same quantity of my best stable
manure into the other half of the field. The
effect on the soil was nearly the same with
both these kinds of manure ; but the vege
tation on that part of the field which had
been furnished with Bommer's manure,
was more luxurious and the folliage of a
deeper verdure, which I attribute to the
richness of the saline matter which it con
tains, and which alone prdserved the hu
midity of the soil during the severe drought
of this last season.-It is proper to remark
also, that in the composition of the Bon
mer manure, I employed simply such do
ses of the ingredients as were absolutely
necessary to insure success in the operation
of making it, and if I had increased these
quantities, there is not the least doubt that
the result of the Bommer manure would
have been far superior to that of any horse
"FPerfectay satisfied with my expori
ment and its results, I have put up fixtures
near my barnyard for the purpose of pre
paring large quantities of this manure ;
and within the last two months I have
made three heaps, which have yielded me
between 200 and 300 loads of excellent
manure. The last heap was composed
entirely of 100 loads of sedge grass, nearly
dry, with which I intermixed 40 loads of
swampy matter, such as exist on my farm.
All my outlay in purchasing ingredients
to form the lye for this last heap, amount
ed to between $20 and $30, and in disbur
sing this trifling sum, 1 have made a heap
of manure, which 1 would not dispose of
"1 shall prepare other heaps of manure
before the winter sets in, and those who
may be desirous to see me at work, and
to assure themselves of the truth of what
I have said, need only. call at my farm,
and judge for themselves. The benefits
which 1 derive from using the method are
not inconsiderable. Before becoming ac
quainted with it, I purchased every year
from three to five hundred dollars worth of
manure, which I needed over and above
that of my own farmyard, for the two hun
dred acres which I have. Now I do not
purchase one penny's worth, and I can
make double the quantity if I choose. I
have the advantage of producing my ma
nure in the sowing and planting season. I
can make it more or less strong, more or
less fermented, so as to suit the soil'aud
kind of crop for which I want it ; I spread
and plough it while it is perfectly fresh,
and consequently in all its strength.
These are some of the results experienced
by me in using Bommer's method of ma

We regret that our coilumns affords space
for only a brief extract from the eloquent
vindication of Mr. WVise to his constituents.
We have seldom read a more eloqument and
arnest appeal. The snm of his advice is,
or what ?
1st. To pay your public States debt.
2d. To educate your childretn-overy
hild of them-at common primary free
schools at State charge.
Trhat is my legacy of advice to you be
fore I leave niy coutitry's shores, to return
erhaps, no more forever.
"Economy and Taxation !" should be
the watchwvord and the reply of the Gov
rnent and People of every State in the
[nion. Nothing more is wanting to rem
edy the evils of IHard Times.
The most awful calamity of "hard
times" is their depredation ~upon- pubfic
norals. They afford knaves the pretext
nd force weak men to dodge their debts.
hey destroy confidence among those men
who are honest, atnd thus increase their
wn pressure, But men of stern integrity,
f high honor, and of brave nerve, meet the
iiculties of the times,'they look debt and
distress full in the face, prepare to grapple
anfully with them,- and lilte proud and
heroic freemen, wvith brows erect, come off
more than conquerors-more than ifI cov
ered with the sweat and dust and' blood of
a thousand victory crowned battle-fields!
A true, a brave, and an honest men rises
with the crisis in-his own affairs. He -re
dues oxpenditures-, he sells every unneces
sary possession,=hle parteraith every luxury,
he saves every mite, he' watches close, he
works hard~and bears every pri'vation un
til ho is free again, and until his honor is
afe. A n.d asi is wit-lh at,,.n honnsand n
bravo man, so should it be with the States.
In a -Repurlie the honor of the State is
morefprecIous far than the individual honor
of every man in it-; and every true patriot
in the, State will be more-jealous, more
render of the honor of his State than of his
own.e He who deserts' the standard of
Statlhonor, is the worst of deserters, the
bass of deserters. BNaO taxation, then;
lay it on heavy until every sliver of the
Comrnonwealth's debt is sunk, and every
morsel- -of public -credit is saved. Look
uponavery demagogues of .whatever hue
of par'1', who comes biefureyoi Teniouncing
taxcation for the public debt, no matter how
,r on what imposed, as the deadliest of foes
to the State-denounce him as one who
would tempt you to dishonor. The mad
tess of party will forget not only State but
ndividtal honor; it will seek to make cap
tal out of the want of wisdom in the mere
mode of taxation. Punish, I beseech you.
he culprits, whoever they be, who would
recklessly fix upon you indelible shame
and disgrace, for the mere form's sake of
taxation. Distrust all attempts to disturb
the operations of a tax bill already pasesd.
Disbelieve any set of men who come before
you with false promises of freedom from tax
stion. Listen only to those sincere friends
who will honestly tell you that you must
le taxed, how- much you ought to be taxed
and who will counsel freely and fully with
you beforehand as to the mode and subjects
if taxation. In a word, learn to love taxa
tion as the only means of accomplishing
tuch objects as those of paying the public
iebt,.and of educating your -children, rich
and poor.. See to it well that no revenue
-aised for legislative purposes is wasted ;
tee that it is all faithrally applied to the
rue ends of Government; but be sure to'
-aise enough and amply enough for every
!nd of State necessity, usefulness, and
ionor; There is no easy mode of taxation,
io royal road to paying debts or to oduca
ion. Industry, honesty, economy and ed
ication alone can make you a free and

Somne of this man's- fitness for his position
may be gathered from the following verba
