Above the plodding nations. s

And walk among the mountains; all
Inhale the pure and fragrant air, st
And drink from gushing fountains. hi
Your love of gold, your toll and strife, s
Have made your souls too bestial;
Come forth again to Nature's life, a
And catch a glimpse celestial.
Ye warriors. fling aside your arms,
And hush your battle-thunders: b
For smiling Peace amid her farms, t
Invites to rural wonders.
Ye crowds, that go like driven herds 0
Along your streets and alleys,
Game out to hear the singing birds
And brooklets in the valleys.
Forsake your hot and noisy walls,
And come among the roses;
We'll sit beside the waterfalls
Until the twilight closes.
We'll wander down the winding streams
To watch the birds and fishes;
Or sleep in shadows where sweet dreams
Shall crown our dearest wishes.
And when the evening shadows trail
Along the grassy ridges,
We'll down the placid rivers sail
Beneath their arching bridges.
The moon shall look with raliant face
Through air with odors laden,
Andsee us in some happy place
With love and lute and maiden.
Oh! then forsake the dusty street,
While summer charms invite you;
Let shady forests cool the heat,
And mountain air delight you.

FISH PONDS. ,
The following excellent hints on the subject
of "Fish Ponds," and their cheap and easy con
struction, we clip from the Southern Planter,
publi4hed at Petersburg, Va. The importance
f this subject, as a matter of domestic econo
my, adapted to the wants, convenience and ca
pacity de every planter and planter's family in
theTlanting States, applies with as much force
here as it does in Virginia. 'i here is scarcely a
planter in this whole country who may not, at a
very light outlay of labor, supply his family eve
ry ay in the.ear with good, home-raised fresh
fsh. In the lime regions of Alabama and Mis
sissippi, where th'ee are few springs, Artesian
wells supply the water for ish ponds just
where fancy and convenience could desire them.
What could add so muoh oChkeauty and fresh
ness to a gentleman's home, the amusement
of his childres, as one of those artificial lakes of
p ure fresh water, and it stock-ed with an abun
dant supply of fine, fat, home-raised tame fish!i

With the nicest v - *a that a small pond

Iarge one, wi . It is now customary for
alroughovet er who properly appreciates
host ever luxuries of the table, to pitt up
- ie comfo his annual supply of this article,t
. i To s t that he should have a good andt
ut iS Em t pond for the purpose. Let him
apenm a pond supplied with a few of oura
hve -eties of peh, and in a couple of years
~ne beg'in to luxuriate in both of these luxu
to his~ heart's content. We would by nor
us limit the size of a fish pond to the fomithe
an acre. A half or even a whole acre wouldn
t be objectionable, as the supply of fish would a
f course bear a proportion to the area and depth s
f the water.
Our mode of constructing a pond is as follows:
After selecting a suitable location, taking care e
to avoid a very sunny exposure, both on account
of the ice and the fish, we cut a ditch from three
to four feet wide, according to the depth we need
to go to reach the clay, cutting out all the roots
carefully. When we have dug this ditch the full
length of the contemplated Jam, we turn about
and thromthe earth back into the ditch, and
build the dam immediately over the ditch, with:
dirt altogether, taking it from the upper side, ~
which wiigive more depth of water and more
security against leakeage and breakage. When e
we have raised the dam to the requisite height,
we cut a waste around each end, seven or eight ~
feet wide, and of sullicient depth to make the s
dam secure from overflow in time of heavy floods
of rain. If the source from whence we draw c
our supply of water is near, we deem it best to a
cut a head ditch, carrying it both sides~ of the ~i
poend and emptying it sonme distance below the -
dam. Care should? be taken to keep far enough -
from the pond to prevent this ditch from becomn- (
ing a drain, in case it should wash deep, that
would let the water pass off from the pond. The
object of this ditch is to carry off the inuddy
water and floods that might carry off many fish
and endanger the dam-.T
When the pond is completed, we have only to
get our angling implements, go to the next pond f
or river, with a bucket on our arm-and while b
enjoying the sport of fishing, in a few hours pro
vide a stock to start with. Or we may take a"
seine and a barrel, and go to work in a more bu
siness like way.
In selecting fish for the pond, we prefer the el
varieties of perch: the freckle, or silver perch. i
the black perch, the wide menth, or Joe Dentons'
(as they are called amongst us,) and the yellow
perch. In fact all the varieties of perch common
to our waters are excellent for the table, afford
fine sport to the angler, and may be caught at
almost any season of the year. The chub is not.
suited to small ponds. He is very voracisus,
soon eats out the other sorts of fish, and then
preys-upon his own progeny. We would recom
mend to those who would like to cultivate this
variety, to build a second pond for them below
the first, so that they may prey upon the small
fish that escape through the wastes. The com
mon round fish of our rivers wvill not breed ex
cept in running water, but we like to throw a
few of them in the pond to be taken out in win
ter. They grow quickly and do not prey upon
the others. If Our springis a bold one, wecould a
rear the mountain or speckled trout, with entire
success, between it and the head of the pond, by "m*
a'nking boxes at intervals in the stream, of two
to three feet depth, and six or eight feet long, rE
and putting .a few stout rocks at the bottom: l
" The great difficulty, however, in regard to this '
fish, rs the distance to which we must gofor ~

As a measure of domestic economy, the rear
a of fish commends itself to every farmer. As
source of healthful innocent recreation to our I
us and daughters, it is worthy of our conside

ilful use of the angle addicted to the grog j
op, the gambling halls, or any. of the low
tunts of vice and rowdyism. It is a refining
iort. All anglers, almost without exception,

'atrick Henry, if not the most successful, was

ow much the silent hours-of thought and reflec
on which this great apostle of liberty indulged,
rhile watching his cork on the still waters, con
ributed to prepare him for the eventful struggle
f the revolution.
We shall conclude this article by recommend.

is pond may be made a very great convenience,
Imost if not as great as the chicken coop itself.

RUiANITY TO ANIMAILS PUNISHED BY PROV
Some poet has truthfully said that
" Man's inhumanity to man
Makes countless thousands mourn."
Of man's inhumanity and downright cruelty to
lumb animals, something equally true and still
more severe might be said, and easily sustained.
For, though there seem to be good reason fiy
thinking that humane sentiments and disrs'
tions towards the dumb creation are beebing

those guilty of it, to the j t reprehension of the
more merciful and the ,ore excellent ones of
the earth; and it is apinquiry of no little inter

and treated by a j..t and merciful Providence.
How, then, do- Providence deal with those
who are guilty 1huianity and indifference to
the comfort othose animals which have been

who carr. ut this inquiry as far as their own

to their extensive assortment ef
STOVES, GRATES, RANGES,

Our assortment in this department is all that the

sirable patterns that are to be found exclusirely at

patterns, all bought within the last sixty days and
from the latest designs. We think we hazard
nothing in saying that we can offer a MUCH
GUEATER VARIETY-in this line than all other
dealers in the city combined.

Having tested nearly all the different styles of
Ranges extant, we have for two years past sold
Morrs' PATENT' INVINCIBLE RANGE exclu
sively, believing them to lbe the very best article
otfered. We have sold sonme twenty of these
Ranges in Augusta and vicinity, andl they have
never failed to give perfect satisfaction. We will
sell to any customer with a full guarant~ee that
thcs.e Ranges are perfect in their operation in
IIOUSE FURNIIHING GOODS.
In this department enumeration is out of the
question. . Our assortment is, as usual complete,
and no effort will be spared on our part to retain
roarhna~aoitoieaaepe for fivo
years past. It is well known that we keep MORE
THAN DOUBLE the stock and variety of any
house in the city, and ours is, in fact, THB
P L A CE to purcbase House Furnishing Goods.
Th le increase of our-business in this department
has entirely exceeded our expectations. Our ef
forts to establish a FIRST CLASS IIOUSE-FUR
KISIllNG .sTOR E have been crowned with sue
cess by an appreciating public, arid our motto is
" Ujncard and onzward !
We have in store an unusually heavy stock of
