"I am trying."
"Well witness, what do you say now ?"
continued the official presently.
"I haven't made any discoveries asyet."
"Have you not, within a week, told

"Not that I remember."
"Did you not tell me yesterday that
you bought spirits of defendant ?"
"You did ! Ah I Well, sir when you
told me that, did you lieor tell the truth ?"
"I told the truth."
"Well, sir, then you have bought
spirits of defendant?"
"What did you mean by swearing you
could not remember ?"
"I meant that I could not."
"Your memory returned amazingly
quick. Did you pay defendant for the
spirits you bought of him. ?"
"How much ?"
"What kind did you buy?"
"Spirits of camphor."
"Ahem ! we i est the case here."

ADTVANCE IN AGRICULTURE.-In an
admirable article on the above subject,
the editor of the American Farmer says
that if we would lay a firm basis on
which to build up wisdom and knowledge
in the minds of our planters, large and
small, we must convince them- that the
course pursued by our forefathers in
husbandry, is by no means the best
course. And he would convince them
fret, that in general, a small farm is
better than a large one.
Second, convince them that a little,
well tilled, is better than much, half
tilled. Convince them that two loads
of manure are better than one, and every
lead, judiciously applied, is better than
a greenback dollar.
Convince them that three good' cows
are better than six poo; ones, and so
on of all other stock. Convince them
that two blades of grass may easily be
made to grow where but one only grew
Convince them that experiment is the
mother of i:nprovement, and improve
ment thie true source of wealty ; and
lastly, convince them of these simple
trutbs, and induce them to practice ac
cordingly, and the work is done. You
will then bring mind and body to act
in unison. You will elevate the hus
bandman to his natural sphere in the
scale of existence. You will place hina
oa the road to higher eminence. He
wHil think for himself, he will be learn
ed, he will be wise, he will be wealthy
Rev. Henerv Ward Beecher's farm
and bomne, at Peeskill, is- thus de.scribed
by a corr'espondent:
The farm is about two miles east of the
railroad depot, and. a beautiful iite for a
summer residence. The residence is a
low roofed, one story-and-a-half building,
and resembles very much an old-fashion
ed farm house. The carriage house and
barn and foreman's residence are all one
edifice. In external appearance, this
building is more imposing than Mr.
Beecher's home. The farm consists of
about forty acres, and I am told its cost
may be estimated at forty thousand
dollars. When Mr. Beecher purchased
it, it was ca#ered with rocks and stones,
but he bas made it bloom and blossomu
with flowers, and so enriched its soil that
it yields prodigious harvest. The farm
is a garden ; the whole of it has been
subsoiled twenty-five inches, and every
stone, large or small, has been taken out
and put into fences or drains. I never
saw such vegetables and fruit. He has
four acres of onions, and last year sola
eight hundred barrels; the foreman told
me he sold last year about ten thousand
dollaas worth of produce from the place.
Such onions, beets, squashes and d warfed
pears 1 never before witnessed ; one small
pear tree, not three feet high, had fifty
seven pears on it, and many other trees
seemed loaded with their fruit.
CoumEIT[oN.-The Richmond papers
lose no opportunity of poking fun at their
neighbors of Petersburg, to which the
papers of the Cockade city respond
promptly. The following is the latest
correspondence passing between them:

meidiog that bhursday, November 29,

day of thanksgiving and praise to
Almighty God, who has been pleased to
vouchsafe to uq as a peeople another year
of that natural life which isan indispensa
ble aonsideration of peace, security and
progress ; that the rear has, moreover,
beep Crowned with many peculiar bless
ings_; the civil war that so recently
closed among us has not been anywhere
re-opened ; foreign intervention has ceased
to excite alarm or apprehension; intrusive
pestilence has been benignly mitigated;
domestic tranquility has improved; sen
timents of conciliation have largely pre
vailed, and affections of loyalty and pa
triotirm have been widely renewed. Our
fields have yielded quite abundantly, our
mining industry has been richly reward
ed, and we have been allowed to extend
our railroad system far into the interior
recesses of this cotntry, while our com
merce has resumed its customary activity
in foreign seas. These great natural
blessings demand a national acknowledg
ment. He recommends, also, that on the
same solemn occasion the people do
humbly and devoutly implore God to
grant to our national councils and to our
whole people that Divine wisdom which
alone can lend any nation into the ways
of all good.
Is A BROKEN NECK CJRABLE.-A Lon
don,lelter in the Chicago Evening Jour
nal has the following :
The old saying that there is no cure
for a broken r eck, has just been practi
cally disapproved by a surgeon at Green
ock. He was called in ti, see a young
girl who had jist fallen a distance of 18
feet, and thoroughly dislocated her neck.
When he reached her, the face was near
ly reversed, and looking over the back.
He promptly supported the back with
the left knee, took a grasp of the head,
and began to pull gradually and prettv
strong, whereupon the girl's eyes opened
and there was an effort at breathing. In
creasing the pressure the parts suddenly
came to their natural po.4tion, and
after a minute or two regular breathing
was established. Close attention was
afterward paid to the case, and after
much fever and occasional convulsions,
the child r ecovered and is now as well as
