I OWE NO MAN A DOLLAR
BY CHARLES P. SiIRAS.
Oh do not envy, my own dear wife!
The wealth of our next door neighbor,
But bid me still be stout of heart,
-And cheerfully follow my labor.
You must know, the last of those little debts
That have been otr fingering sorrow
Is paid this night! So we'll both go forth
With joyful hearts, on the morrow!
Oh the debtor is but a sihame-faced dog
With the creditor's name on his collar,
While I'm a king and you are a queen,
For we owe no man a dollar
Our neighbor you saw in his conch to-day,
With his wife and Iis flaunting daughter,
While we sat down at our coverless board
To a crust and a cup of water,
I saw that the tear drop stood in your eye,
.Though you tried your bestto conceal it
I know that the contrast reached your heart,
And you could not help but feel it;
But knowing now that our scanty faro
Has freed my neck from the collar,
You'll join my laugh, and help me shout
That we owe no man a dollar!
This nwighbor, whose show has dauled your
II fact, is a wretched debtor;
I pity him oft from my very heart,
And I wish that his lot was better.
Why the man is the veriest slave alive,
For his dashing wife and daughter
Will live in style though ruin should come
So lie goes like a lamb to the slaughter ;
But lie feels it the tighter every day,
That terrible debtor's collar!
Oh! what would lie give could he say with us,
That lie owed no man a dollar!
You seem amazed, but I'll tell you more:
Within two hours I met him
Sneaking away with a frightened air,
As if a fend had beset him;
Yet lie fled from a very worthy man,
Whon I met with the greatest pleasure
Whom I called by name, and forced to stop,
Though he said lie was not at leisure.
He heldi my last note ! so I held him fast,
Till lie freed my neck from the collar;
Then I shook his hand as I proudly said,
I Now, I owe no man a dollar !'
Ahi! now you smile, for you feel the force
Of the truths I have been repenting
I knew that a downright honest heart
In that gentle breast was beating.
To-morrow I'll rise, with a giant's strength,
To follow my daily labor;
But ere we sleep let us hunibly pray
For our wretched next door neighbor:
And we'll pray for the time when all shall be free
From the weight of the debtor's collar
When the poorest will lift his voice and cry,
" Now, I owe no man a dollar!"
GRIEVE NOT ThY FATHER AS LONG AS HE
BY Mas. L. H1. s5GoUaNE.
Ah! grieve him inot, whose silver hairs
Thin o'er his wasted temsples stray ;
Grieve not thy sire, whein time imspairs
The glory of his manhlood's sway
Ihis tottering steps wihm reference aid,
Binid Isis wan brow with hsonor's weath
Anid let Isis deafensed ear be smade
The harp where filial love shall breathe.
'Wha~t thioughs his pausing mind partake
The evils of its house of elay,
Though wearied, blinded memaory break
The easket where her treasures lay.
Still wviths prompt arm Isis burdens bear,
Bring heavenly balms his wounds to heal,
And with afleetion's watchful care,
The error that thou mark'st, conceal.
Know'st thou hsow oft those powerful arms
Ihave clasped thee to his shieldinug breast,
Whmen isifant woes, or childish harms,
Thly weak, unguarded soul distressed ?
Know'st thou how oft these accents strove
Tine uninstructed minisd to aid 1
Ihow oft a parent's prayer of love,
Ilth pierced densse muidnsighmt's darkest shade?
Crieve not thmy fasthser, till lie die,
Lest whsen lhe sleeps in earth's cold breast,
Thme record of his latest sigh
Should prove a dagger to thy rest.
For if this holiest debt of love
Forgotten or despised should be,
Ile whom thou call'st thy Sire above,
Will bend a Judge's frown on thee.]

Farming--Attention to Small
Things the Secret of Success.
Mehlssrs. Editors :-If you will allow
me the use of a brief space in the columns
of' the Farmer and Planter, I wvill make a
few hints upon matters relating to farm
I fully believe that too much cannot be
said in favor of subsoiling our lands and
protecting them against the washing rains,
that bear so rudely away from the soil the
elements essential to its productiveness.
These matters, together wvith rotation of
crops, and drainage of the wvet lands, are
receiving, I am glad to see, due consider
ation at your hands. The ravages occa
sioned by their neglect throughout the
South are too apparent to be mistaken,
and all except the volunttary benighted and
those into whose mind no light can shine,
are now convinced of what ought to be
done to render their land productive and
their homes permanent. But there are
other things to be attended to besides these
fundamental principles of successful farm
ing are many trifles, so conssidered, that
make the profit or loss of the husband
man, and in the observance of these lies
thme good management of the farmer, or
in their neglect the secret of his failure.
In the first place, it is a matter of moment
for most of us who cultivate deversified
crops to ask Ourselves, if weo have our i
tables, granarles anti out buildings pro
>erly located and conveniently construct
d. Are the stalls and troughs for otir
torses so constructed as to be comforta
le, and to prevent waste of food ? Do
ve use chopped fodder, corn or meal?
)o we vary the food, or continue the same?
)a we make thorough use or the curry.
lo:nb morning and night? Is our stock
n good condition at the time of laying
>y our crop ? Have we good collars and
races for out, hirses, or do we use grape
ines and hickory withes? Have we good
lows, hnrrowg, hoes and every kind of
mplement necessary to facilitate and save
:bor, and do we suffer these to lie out in
kight dews and rains, or have we a place
or each one beneath a shelter, and do we
ake care that each is stored in its place
vhen not in use?
Do we feed our milch cows night and
norning upon peas, turnips or meal, or do
ve suffer them to go with what they can
aick up in the range, and then complain
hat we are without butter and milk, and
hat our cows, miserable milkers are dry
he greater part of the year ?
Have we set apart a piece of land, and
ra-mred it well, to be sown in ruta baga
Irnips? If not, is it not time to do it
Do we, as a matter of grace feed our
ows on decaying cabbage leaves, and
xpect to have butter fit to he used ?
These are but, few of the many ques.
ions that farmers might ask themselves
vith profit, but I will forbear pressing
nore upon the mind of the reader lest lie
al to heed any of them. It is a very
eneral fault among the best of managers
hat small things are passed by as too in
significant to deserve attention.
This is a great mistake, and never shall
we be a thrifty, independent, good-living
people, until wve change our habits in this
resp.-ct. The trifling occurrences of every
dav life make up the sum or human hap
piness or misery, so do the details of plant
ing and farming constitute the gain oi
loss. Vast crops of rice may be mad<
and handsome prices realized-bales ol
Dotton may be heaped on bales, till Ossi
be piled upon Pelion, and if the little con
reniences of every-day life are not al
commnand, we fail to secure the object oi
adl our exertions.
Rules for the Application of
The following article, from the writing
)f Von Thaer, is copied from the Plow
the Loom and the Anvil.
We much question whether one farmei
Dut of a hundred ever entered into an3
calculation to inform himself about th<
w, ight or given measure of manure; ye
ho.w without such calculations, can lie tel
whether his cattle are over or under load
ed, or his land over or under dunged? I[
thre any business on this earth conduct
ed with so little pretence to exactness, a!
that of agriculture? But how can it b<
otherwise, when there is for it no pretenc<
of education, or systematic account o
any thing--when, in fact, the idea is tha
any fool may make a farmer.
Thue real value of manure is increase<
by the fact that it progressively augmien's
iself, and that, beside the produce it yield
ed, an extra quanlity *of manure willi
properly bestowecd never fail to product
tie elements of a fresh supply, so thati
will soon lbe possible to cultivate thos<
plants from which the largest sum o
money may be realized. On the othei
hud, the manure diminilshes in like pro
po(rtionl, if scarcity is allowed to be lt
ad an immediate and suitable remedy b<
[und and applied. One of the conse
luences of a scarcity or diminution o
cinure is a scarcity of strawv, and whler<
~here is little strawv or fodder little dung
~an be obtained ; andl thus the quantity o
nanure progressively dwsindles aw~ay un
ii the soil becomes totally exhausted.
However, expensive it may be to be
tow the first quantity of manure on .
oil which has been1 impoverished, thmer<
~ertainly is no capital better eimployed
han that which is expended in this man
Thme usual load for a wagon dlrawn'm by
our horses is thirtv-six cubie feet of sta
de manure half reduced, amnd in the state,
hat is to say, when the straw has become
;oft and disorganized, with out becing whol
y decomposed and the (lung is moist, yei
ot very wa~itery a cubic foot of it will
veighi 20 pounds; therefore a load 3(
eet contains 201t6 pounds, w"hich for the
ake of oibtaiiing round numbers we will
-educe to 2,000 pounds. Where the roadsm
ire good and the wveather favorable, tlh
oad may be increased ; but as a period of
ne weather is seldom used for carrying
nanure, this quantity wvill in genleral be
ound to be tolerably correct.
If tihe strawv is not decomposed or al
red, a cubic foot, closely packed, wvill
ot weigh more than 18 pounds, and in
his case the volume or size of the load
s increased, and coatainls from 45 to 46
:ubic feet of manure.
When eight of these loads are distribu.
;ed over an acre of land it is considered
hat a good covering has been given.
Bach square perch then receives 88 lbs.
>f manlure, and each square foot nearly 6
younds. If only five of these loads be
dlowved each acre, as is generally tihe case,
t is said then thlat ground hlas been slight
y manured and each square perchl receives
thout 54 pounds. A nd lastly, if 12 loads
tre spread over each acre, which must
ever occur where cereal crop are to be
~rown, (wve of course do not include In
ian corn,) unless the land has been com
>letely exhausted, then the ground is said
o0 have received an abundant manuring.
It is customary to allowv only one-hlalf
he weight and quantity of manure above
nentioned when the mianure is derived
ntirely from sheep because the effects
svhich it produces are at once greater and
nore prompt but less efficacious in point
'rho periods of these manurings occur
very three, four, six or nine years-- The
nore frequently applied, the slighter they
Lre; and the longer the intervals the more
bundant must the manuring he. Thus
only the quantity to be laidepin at each
time but the tmuniber of thies to be re- a
RECEI 3 dR MAKING AfvIx PLD
DING.-Pare and chop fine half a dozen
more of the best cooking apples-rub a
little grease on the inside of a pudding a
dish, and cover the bottom and sides with
h-lf an inch of finely pulverized bread, -r
and some butter divided ito Small lumps;
then put on a layer of apples with sugar
and grated nutmeg, and repeat the layer,
which must be of bread and butter, and
pour on gradually over the whole, a cup
of cold water. Bake for thirty minutes.
It may, when desirable, be prepared and i
liaked the day before it is used, but it
must be turned into a platter thoroughly
heated berore serving, and sprinkled with
powdered sugar. No sauce required.
CUSTRnD WITHOUT EGGo.-One quart
of sweet new milk; four table-spoonfuls
of flour, and two of sugar. Season with
nutmeg, or cinnamon if you prefer it, and
salt to your taste, The milk should be
put over a brisk fire, and when boiling
the flour must be stirred in, after having
been mixed with cold milk-to prevent
its lumping. As soon as thoroughly
scalded add the sugar, salt and spice. It
may be baked either in crust or cups.
This is a fine custard, and by many pre
ferred to that made with eggs.

A GOOD REAso.-A country peda
gogue had two pupils, to one of whom he
was very partial, and to the other very
severe. One morning it happened that
these two were late and were called out
to account for it. " You must have heard
the bell, boys; why did you not come I
"Please sir," said the favorite, "I was a
dre imin' that I was goin' to Californy,
and I thought the schoo'-bell was the
steam-boat bell as I was goin' in."
" Very well, sir," said the master, glad
of any pretext to excuse his favorite; "and
now, sir, (turning to the other) what have
you to say ?" " Please sir, please sir,"
said the puzzled boy-" IP! ! was wai
tin" to see Tom of! !" It was this same
boy who being asked the next day if his
father was a Christian, answered, "No
sir, he's a Datchman."-Carpet Bag.
SWEET.-" Ma! ma! Cousin Bill, lie's
in the parlor, with sister Sal, and hekeeps
",Cousin Bill biting Sal !"
"Yes'em, I seed him do it ever so ma
ny times; bit her right on the mouth
and the tarnal gal didn't holler a bit no
" Oh-alh ! never mind Ned, I guess lie
didn't hurt her much."
" Hurt her! by gosh, she loves, it she
does, cos she kept letting him, and didn't
say nothing but just smacked her lips as
though twas good~jshe did. I seed it all,
through the key-hole. I'll fire taters at
him, by gosh."
A flashy young man wvent into a Posey
country clothing store the other dacy, aiid
rasked the price of a pair of pants. On
being told the price lie exclaimed
" Why no, you don't say ; I could steal
'em hepr thana that."
"'No doubt," replied the merchant.
" I've lost three pair since your arrival."
"A h, indeed ! You have lost some
thing else too, which some would miss
more thman their breeches."
[lost possible! Pray what else have
"Your brains," coolly responded the
" Oh, I knewv that," retaliated the mer
" But T wvould not accuse you for a mo
ment of having stolen them."
Be.-Some peopile always have a bu,,
whlichl they put in thme wvay of everyting.
Inquiring of such a onie the character of1
his neighbor, he replied :" Why, lie is a
poorly fair, clever sort of man ; but hem."
"What ?" " Why, a hem-why he feeds
his darned old1 horse on pumpkins !"
How DF.LIGHTFUL, w~hmen one reposing
after the fatigues of the day, and the,
mind, before entering dream-land, is per
haps taking a retrospective sweep of
years gone by, calliing up fond images
in the memory until the glowing sun
light of other (lays senms returning
back again how pleasant then is it to feel
the gripe of a bedlbug in the back.
" PO~rPEr," said one darkie to another,
"what am a crowner's 'quest ?"
" Wal de fac is, nigger, a crowner's
'quest am a lot of tellers wvhat sits down <
on a dlead man, to find out for sartin
whether he am dead, or only playing
Mas. Guames says she doin't know what
they want or a grand jury. She thinks
that common juries are grand enough, as
her hausbanid felt so grand when he was
on the jury that nobody dared to speak to
him for a month afterwvard.
Poou Pr~s !-The farmer whose pigs
were so lean that it took two of them to
make a shadow, has been b~eat by another,
who had several so thin that they would
crawl out through the cracks in their pen.
He finally stopped them by tying knots
in their tails!
"LANDORDx," said anm exquisite, "can

murphies, rendered innoxious by ignecouse
martyrdom ?" He wanted a sweet pota
