C,MoILE.-A decoction of the leaves of
common chamomile, will destroy every
species of insect, and nothing contributes so
much to the'health of a garden as a number
of chamomile plants dispersed through it
No green--house or hot'house should ever be
without it, in a green or dried state; either
the stalks or flowers will answer. It is a
singular fact, that if a plant is drooping and
apparently dying, in nine cases out of ten it
will recover if you plant chamomile near it.
THE ORIGIN OF THE PHILADELPHIA CoN-'
'VENTION.-It is not a fact generally known
that. Gov. Orr has the honor of first suggest
ing the necessity of the Philadelphia Con,
veution. This was first done during a con%
ference with some of the leading conserva"
tives of Washington when he was in that
city, and subsequently the idea was enlarged
apon in a letter which at some future day we
shall give to the public.-Col. Carolinian.
