Lift up your beads, ye stooping throngs,
And see Life's constellations;
For the stars are resonant with songs
. Above the plodding nations.
Forget, one hour, each slavish care,
And walk among the mountains;
Inhale the pure and fragrant air,
And drink from gushing fountains.
Your love of gold, your toil and strife,
Have made your souls too bestial;
Come forth again to Nature's life,
And catch a glimpse colestial.
Ye warriors, fling aside your arms,
And hush your battle-thunders:
For smiling Peace amid her farms,
Invites to rural wonders.
Ye crowds, that go like driven herds
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 ra.liant face
Through air with odors laden,
And see us in some happy place
With love and late and maiden.
Oh! then forsake the dusty street,
While summer charms invite you;
Let shady forests cool the heat,
And mountain air delight you.

throughout e' r who properly appreciae
amost eve : luxuries of the table, to pbt up
tecomforL hsannual supply of thsarticle,
ce. To se t that he should have a good and
iis imp t pond for the purpose. tLet him
a perm a pond supplied with a few of our
have ieties of perch, and in a couple of years
fine begin to luxuriate in both of these 1luxu
h to his heart's content. We would by no
a limit the size of a fish pond to the fourth
an acre. A half or even a whole acre would
t be objectionable, as the supply of lish would
f course bear a proportion to the area and depth
f the water.
Our mode of constructing a pond is as follows:
After selecting a suitable location, taking care
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 contempae dam, we turn about
and throw.the earth back into the ditch, and
build the dam immediately over the ditch, with
dirt altogether, taking it from the upper side,
which wi give more depth of water and more
secnrity against leakeage and breakage. Whetn
we have raised the dam to the requisite height,
we cut a waste around each eiid, seven or eight
feet wide, and of sullicient depth to make the
dam secure from overflow in timie of heavy floods
of rain. If the source from whence we draw
our supply of water is noar, we deem it best to
cut a head ditch, carrying it both sides of the
pond andI emptying it some distance below the
dam. Care should be taken to keep far enough
from the pond to prevent this ditch from becom
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 muddy
water and floods that might carry off many fish
and endanger the dam.
When the pond is completed, we have ounly to
get our angling implements, go to the next pond
or river, with a bucket on our arm--and while
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 ponid, we prefer the
varieties of perch: the freckle, or silver perch.
the black perch, the wide mouth, or Joe Dentouis'
(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 voracious,
soon eats out tbe other sorts of fish, and then
preys upon his own progeny. We wvould recom
mend to those who would like to cultivate this
variety, to build a second pond for thenm 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 will 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 spring is a bold one, wecould
rear the mountaim or speckled trout, with entire
succ~ess, between it and the head of the ponid, by ~
a~nking boxes at intervals in the stream, of two
to three feet depth, and six or eight feet long, &
and putting a few stout rocks at the bottom.
The great difficulty, however, in regard to this
fish, is the distance to which we must gofor
them. It is very much to be regretted that our
'wealthy gentlemen do not pymore attention to
' rearing fsh. In New Engad we are told some
of our most distinguishe men have regarded the
subjetas well worthj of their efforts.
* :.gse parts of Franc~e artificial ponds are
iigh rent. They are rented by the acre. We
now of no reason why artificial ponds may not
)e as productive in Nhirginia as in any part of (
Europe. Our springs furnish as pure water as
Lay in the world, while the varieties of fish are
is numerous and as fine as can be found any
As a measure of domestic economy, the rear
ing of fish commends itself to every farmer H
a source of healthful innocent recreation to our E
sons and daughters, it is worthy of our conside
ration. We have rarely known boys who have
been taught and encouraged in the frequent and 0
skilful use of the angle addicted to the grog j
shop, the gamhling halls, or any of the low
haunts of vice and rowdyism. It is a refining
sport. All anglers, almost without exception,
are amiable-and among the votaries of the art,
we can enumerate many of the greatest, best,
and most distinguished men. The illustrious
Patrick Henry, it not the most successful, was
at least one of the most persevering disciples of
the good old Isaac Walton. No one can tell
how much the silent hours-of thought and reflec
tion which this great apostle of liberty indulged,
while watching his cork on the still waters, con
tributed to prepare him for the eventful struggle
of the revolution.
We shall conclude this article by recommend
i to our readers a plan by which we believe the
fI pond may be made a very great convenience,
almost if not as great as the chicken coop itself.
Let the fisherman sink a box of convenient
length and depth just below the spring, so that
the water will flow through it and keep it full.
Let the box be covered with a lid of boards suf.
ficiently open to admit the air freely, with hinges
and lock for security. Whenever he may take
more fish than are needeil for Prent.. na, li
ma ut them in the box, where they will grow
anitrive, and whence he may take them to the
kitchen at short notice alive and fluttering, to
be dressed for himself, or to regale any friend
who may happen to step in unexpecte or too
late for a regular family dinner.

INRUMANITY TO ANIMALS 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
dumb animals, something equally true and still
more severe might be said, and easily sustained.
For, though there seem to be good reason
thinking that humane sentiments and dis"
tions towards the dumb creation are beq'!'g
deeper and stronger in those who possessecor t.

b- those'0 are so inhuman and indifferent to the
.needgid comfort of their brute animals, as to
n let tlhr pick up in the latter portion of the fall
d or eg part of winter, an insufficient amount of
e nutrient from the scanty and frost injured

the ,snter, while at the same time they obtain
zauch less milk or wool, or meat, or work from
animals so mistreated, than those who deal with
their stock more justly and humanely. Under
such treatment, with a continuance of insufficient
food and shelter through the winter, sheep die,
calves become little stunted runts, cows give lit
tle or no milk, lambs come still-born or die in a
few days, cattle become so week that they cannot
do the work that should be done in spring, and
damage and losses accrue in other forms beside.
Want of sufficient food and shelter in fall, winter,
and early spring, prodne-es such result4. Teams
so mal-treated cannot draw a plo0w put down to
a proper depth, andl thus the scanty crops, from
fields plowed onily three or four inches deep, con
tinue the providential punishment throughout
the whole year.
Such are some of the ways in which wrong
doing is rebuked and punished, evil-doers war-ned

to their extensive assortment of
STOVES, GRATES, RANGES,
and a complete variety of everything pertaining to
a FIRST CLASS Ilouse Furnishing Store.

Our assortment in this department is all that the
most fistidious can desire. We have nearly every
style of COOK, OFFICE and PARLOR STOV.S
kept by any other house in the City, and many de
sirnble patterns that are to be found excusirely at
Ce r a t o M.
Of these Goods, we have some thirty different
patterns, all bought within the last sixty days and
from the latest designs. We think we hazard
nothin in saying that we can oflfr a MUCH
GlIE-A'TER VARIETY in this line than all other
dealers in the city combined.

Having tested nearly all the different stSles of
Ranges extant, we have for two years past sold
Morrs' PATENT INVINCIBLE RANGE exclu
sively, believing them to be the very best article
olired. We have sold some twenty of these
Ranges in Augusta and vicinity, andl they have
nerer failed to give perfect satisfatction. We wvill
sell to any customer with a full guarantee that
these Ranges arc perfect in their operation in
HIOUSE FURNISHIING GOODS.
In this department enumeration is out of the
question. . Onr assortment is, as usual complete,
and no eftort will be spared on our part to retain
forourahguse.the nosition it, haurecupied for five
years past. It is well known that we keep MORE
TlAN DOUBLE the stoek andl variety of any
house in the city, and ours is, in fact, TiL E
P L A CE to purebaate Hlouse Furnishing Goods.
The increase of our business in this departmnent
hats entirely exceeded our expectations. Our et
forts to establish a FJRST CLASS IIOUSE-FUR
NISITINU STOR E have been crowned with sue
cess by an apphreciatina public, and our motto is
