MR. WEBSTER'S LETER8 TO JOHN TAYLOE,

"John Taylor-G) ahead. The heart

your work. If you think so, then dispose
of tie Stephes' oxenor-unyoke them, and
send them to the passere for beef. I know
not when I shall see ypu, but I hope before
plainting. If you nediI anything, such as
gariio, for instance, grite to Joseph Buck,
esqr.. Boston, and he.'will send it to you.
Whatever ground yoiu sow or plait, see
that it is in good cotiition. We wa-.lnt no

is to a farmer the next best thing to ' a little
wife well willed.' Culivate your garden.

them without cost. I am.glad that yon have

who are no Whigs atlall, and no better than

letter must soon follow to aniothrer world.
W~ASuTITroT, Mlarch 13th, 1852.
JOn[s TmAYon: I am glad to hear from
y-ou again, and to learn that you are well,
and that your teams, arid tools are ready for
sprig's work, whenever thre w~eathrer will
allow you to begin. I sometimes read books
on farmniing; and . rememiber that a very
sensible old1 authror advises farmers " to plo1w
naked anmd sow naked." By this hre means
that there is no use in begirnnring spi-rig's
w~ork till the weathier is warm, that a farmer
may throw off his whiter clothes arid roll up
Ihis sleeves. Yet Ire says we ought to begiii
as early in the year as possible. lHe wroto
some very pretty verses on this subject,
wuhiich, as far as I remember, run thus:
" While yet thre spring i4 young, wuhile- earth unbinds
Thre frorzenr bo.om to, the western winds:
While mlountajin snows~V dissolve beneathr the sun,
And stre:una yet new, fromi preipiesr runt
EC'en in tis early dawu-ning of tht. year,
Produce thre prlow, andt yoke thre strry isteer;
A rnd goard hini till hre smoke betwniah hris tetil.
Arid the bright share is uried in tire NoiI."
Johrn Taylor, when you read these lines,
(do you not seo . the sno'v melting, anrd the
.little streamrs beginning to run down the
slopes of .your Punrchbrook pnastuire, anid the
new grass starting and growing ini thre trick
ling water, all grecen, bright, arid beautiful ?
Arid do you not see your Durhaim oxen smo
king from heat and perspiration, ars they
drawv along your great breaking rip pilowt,
curttiung arid turning co-er thre tough swIardl in
y-our meadow in the grea-t fielId? Thre name
of this sennsibjle author is Virgil ; arid h egives
farmers much other advice, somec of which
you liave been following all this winter with
out evern knowvinig that hre had given it:
" flit whenr cold weaither-, heavy snow nnd rain,
Thie laborring far-mer in thoe housre restrain,
Let him forcast Iris work, withr timely car-,
Wicelse is huddled whren tire skies mre fair:
Their let him mark the sheep,arid whet thre shirring
Or low trees for boats, arid number o'er
ii sacks, or measure isa increarsing store ;
Or sharpen strikes and meird cacth rake anid fork,
So to be ready in good time to work
Visit his crowded barns at erly miorn,
Look to Iris granary anrd stroll Iris corn;
Give a good breakfast to hris numrrror'us kine,
ills Aslnin nerig nnli- rd irs fattirr swine."
And Mr. Virgil says some other things,
which you understand up at Frinklina as well
as ever he did :
In chilling winter swains enjoy their store,
Foret their hardships, and recruit for more:
The faruner to full feasts invites his frienls,
And what he got with painas, with pleasure spends;
Draws chairs aroun-l the fire, andl tolls once inure,
Stories whieli often lhive leien told berore;
Sprea-ls a clean t.1ablC., with thIngs good to eat,
A nil ais some nipistening to his fruit and meat;
'hey praise his hospitality. and feel
They shall sleep better after such a nical!"
John Taylor, by the time you have got
through this, you will have read enougl.
The sum of all is, be ready for your siring's
work as soon as the yeathor becomes warnn
enough, and then put your hand to the pbw,
and look not back.
THE THUNDERER'S THREAT.
The London Times, in a leader on the
Cuban question, uses the following language.
L is not calculated to .gnench the spirit of
filibusterism now abroad in this country:
" Powerful as the American peop!e un.
questionably are in the delence of all that
belongs to themselves, no nation has; in these.
day-s, the strength or the means to run riot
in the world, and gratify its own lusts and
caprices at the expense of others. This rash
and dangerons course will, if adopted, bring
them into collision with other States besides
Spain, and they %tould enter into such a
onltest degraded in the eyes of the world by
the popular violence and injustice which
iave dictated these aggressions. The con
auest of Cuba will not easily 'be effected by
% mere band or freebooters, if indeed another
Lopez expedition were allowed to quit the
shores of the United States: But we fear
:le American govermnent will be gradually
ed on to do, as it (lid in the case of Texas,
vhat every man of honesty condemns. Let
hem not suppose, however, that such meas
ires are to be taken with impunity because
spain is not the power she once was. Spaim
ins still the means of destroying the trade of
he United States with the Mediterranean,
md of inflicting tremtiendous losses upon it
>y meants of letters of marq'e all over the
vorld. Except Cuba and Porto Rico, she
ias now no western colonies, and nn import
mnt trade for America to assail. Moreover,
ipon a question of this magnitude and im
lis own groveranmet a .. .
othing would better suit him than an op
