PREPARED WrH AN EYE
To Season and Latitude.
Though it is right that you should stand
to your plows while yet you can, be not
,nuiindful of the fact that you may be
:.oon imperatively called, by every sense
(if honor and interest, to buckle on the
armor of your beloved South. Some of
you are gone already to that work. Let
14 * LL, hold themselves in readiness.
NN e .,... .11 expect to do, as that great
and good Southerner Rid slaveholder
GEORUE WAsHINGToN, did,
"Who left the plow and furrowed soil
Till independence crown'd his tvil,
Aud then retired with laurelled brow,
Like Rome's dictator, to the plow."
With or without laurels, yet with hearts
conscious of duty, let this be the pathway
for us all.
Advice for the Times.
Secession and depression have been the
themes of farmers all winter; they have
subscribed for the daily papers, and anx
iously read every paragraph on the condi
tion of the nation We would quote to
them an excellent admonition, 3000 years
old, " lie that observeth the winds shall
not sow, and he that regardeth the clouds
shall not reap.' lie that is constantly
looking at the course of the political
breezes, and scanning the cloulds of nul.
lification, cannot attend to his farming.
Dismiss all political newspapers, or the
nearer to this the better, and then go ac
tirely to work. The news, when there is
atny worth listening to, will be sure to
reach your ears-it will come to you;
you need not go for it. If every farmer
attends faithfully to his calling, and raises
abundant crops, we shall be sure to have
a prosperous country. If prices are like.
ly to 1be low, raise more; a thousand
b;ushels of wheat at 80 cents will bring
as much as five hundred bushels at 164
cents, and the owner will live more cheap
lv. Nothing is more absurd than to say
-Prices are low ; I guess I won't raise
much this year." Ht w will this course
ever make a prosper.us farmer, or give
prosperity to the country ?
So advises the Country Gentleman in
its April number. Thle advice is good so
far as it urges inerensed agricultural eflrts,
but iarrow wierea 1/ al-ises apathy as
tj poltical matten::. It is certainly so, if
considered in its idi1iatioin to Souithem
fariers. For, with us, the present po
litical struggle involves our very existence
as a people; and we must watch it with
constant vakefulness. We must think of
it daily and hourly. even while busily en.
gaged in the work of the term as well as
as in other employments mechanical, pro.
fessional or oflicial. The farmer is, above
all, interested to know continually how
the good cause advances, because it is
emph)latically the cause of his happiness
and his interests.
Yet the Country Gentlenmn's advice is
perhaps natural .enough in a Northern
latitude. For what earthly interest have
.y E.;. .a t'- .jgao-nonf the SoutM'
What is it to them whether the Federal
arms fhil or succeed in the present nefa
rious war ? If there be any thing in the
matter to arouse them, it is the pleasant
prospect of the South's speedily conquer
ig a peace and restoring all the pursuits
of life to their wonted prosperous chan
nuzls. This might serve to stimulate them
to some interest in the pending struggle;
but in other respects, the advice to stop
the papers, wait for news to come of it
self, and hold the plow-handles steadily to
the furrow, is perhaps good enough for
New York ears under the circumstances.
We of the South not only will not follow
it, but wve can not ;for it is now literally
true, that but few families amongst us
have not their thioughts irresistibly drawn
to this struggle by the fact that sonie
miemaber thiereof.-1ith~er, brother or son.
--is gone to do battle-in its defence. And
soon there will not he a lingle fluniily cir

The Apple-Pie Melon.
A corresponident of an agricultural i-x
cha~ng.e thus depicts his ludicrous experi.
enee of the A pple-Piie Melon:
"I tried the pie' meclin with poor sue
'oess. In 1 59 the vi'es camne up fmnely.

direction they crossedi the border of po~
tatoes, and started across a three acre lot
just mowed, anmd I thuought at one time
they would overrun tha~t too, but fortun
ately a f-ost came, andh the pie melon
su rrondered. Niow fir the p/*-viit--three
small, gnarled, ill-booking specimens. all
of which would not weigh five pounds,
which I threw into the hog-pen in disgust.
I am satisfied with the pie melon.'
They are not quite so subject in these
parts to actions of quare clausum fr-egit,
ad the fruit comes more abundantly.
But " the hogpen" is thme usual fate of the
nelons at last. Some say they mauke
good apple pies. We rather think it

P5LowIso.-Ther-e is considerable sense,
mdo more truth, in the following remarks
whlich we take from the Ohio Cultirator:
Boys-smnal Ihoys-are often antbitious

w-. to say that a good fhrmer can not

The farmers' daughters are soon to be
the life as well as the pride of the country
-a glerious race of women which no oth
er land can show. I seek nut to flatter
them, for before they can comp to this,
they will have to make earnest efforts of
one or two kinds. There are some who
depreciate their condition, and some who
have a false pride in it, because they de
mand more consideration than they merit.
A want of intelligence upon all subjects
of the day, and of a refined education, is
no more excusable in a country than a
town bred girl, in this age of many books
Many girls are discouraged because
they cannot be sent away from home to
boarding.sehools ; but men of superior
minds and knowledge of the world would
rather have for wives women well and
properly educated at home. And this
education can be had, wherever the de
sire is not wanting. A taste for reading
does wonders, and an earnest thirst after
knowledge is almost certain to attain a
sweet draught of the "Pierian spring."
There is a farmer's daughter in this very
room in which I am. writing, a beautiful,
refined, and intellectual woman, in whose
girlhood books were not as plentiful as
now, and who gained her fine education
under difficulties which would have dis
couraged any but one who had as true a
love for study.
The women in towns and cities are be
coming so universally unhealthy, and so
almost universally extravagant, foolish
and fashionable, that men are almost in
despair of obtaining wives who are not
invalids, and providing them with what
they demand after they have married
them. Unless the young man has the for
tune (good or bad) to be the inheritor of
wealth he must spend the bloom of his
youth in acquiring enough to "start up
on," as people are expected to begin now.
a-days. Men, even in high places, would
go to the country for their choice, if they
met there equal refinement and intelli
gence. Women are preparing to take a
noble stand in history, and they cannot do
it in ignorance.
Town girls have the advantages of
more highly polished manners and greater
accomplishments; but country girls have
infinitely more to recommend them as
rivals of the.fair city sisters. They
have more truth, household knowledge
and economy, health (and cobsequently
beauty,) simplicity, aff'ection, and fresh
ness of impulse and thought. When they
have cultivated minds, there are more
chances in their favor fcr good sense and
real ability, because so much is not de
manded by the frivolities of society.

Dr. Anadersona says: " I have eaten butter
cured with the above composition that

as sweet as at first." It must be nioted,
however, that buatter- thus eured is to stand

quantities, and with so muchl elbow grease
