These lines were very popular in

An ansi?os, restless temper, that rons
to meet earc on its way, that regrets
lost opportunities too much, and that
ie over painstaking in contrivances for
happiness, is foolish, and should not be
indulged. If you cannot be happy in
one way, be happy in aaother ; and
this felicity of disposition wants but
little aid from philosophy, for health
and good humor are almost all that are
requisite. Many run about after hap

A WON?KHFUL TRANSACTION.
The singular financial transaction
t. occurred io one of the dock offices, in
Buffalo, a day or two since. By some
meaos*or other it happened .that the
office boy owed ono of the dorks three
^ eentsy the clerk owed tho cashier two
teats, and the cashier owed the
offioe boy two cents. One day last week
the offioe boy having a ecnt in his
pocket, concluded to diminish bis debt,
?nd therefore handed tho nickol over to
the clerk, who, TB turn, paid half of his
debt by giving tho oom to the cashier.
The latter handed the cent back to the
!"' office boy, remarking, "Now I owe yoo
noe cent." Tho offioe boy again passed
tho cent to the olerk, who passed it
hack to the offioe boy, and the lutter
individual squared all accounts by pay?
ing it to the dork, thoroby discharging
. his entire debt. Thus it may bo seen
how great is the benefit to be derived
from a bingle oent, if only expended

UNDER THE DIRECTION OF DR. N. A. PRATT, CHEMIST FOR THE Sulpburio Acid
and Super Phosphate Company.
SOLUBLE PHOSPHORIC ACID, in the form of SOLUBLE PHOSPHATE OF LIME, or DIS?
SOLVED BONE PHOSPHATE, is the basis of all good Fertilisers, and these are valuable in the
ratio of Soluble Phosphorlo Aoid whioh is in them. *
The immense deposits of Phosphatid Guanos which were discovered in 1807 in Sontb Carolina,
by Dr. PRATT, consists mainly of Insoluble Phosphate of Lime, whioh is made available as a Fer?
tiliser by boing ground to powder, and reduced by Sulpburio Aoid to suoh a condition as to make
its insoluble phosphate 8'iluble in water, and thus made capable of being taken up by growing
plants. The insoluble Phosphate found in any commercial Fertiliser is of no more value to the
plant than the original Phosphate rock. The greater the proportion of this Soluble Phosphate
which any Fertilizer oontains, the less the quantity required por aero, and consequently the oheapost
Fertiliser is that containing the highest per centage of Soluble Phosphate.
Impressed with these truths, tho SULPHURIC ACID AND SUPER-PHOSPHATE COMPANY
have erected at Charleston the first extensivo Aoid Chambers South of Baltimore, and are able to
offer to planters tho HIGHEST PER CENTAGE OF SOLUBLE PHOSPHATE OF LIME'known
in any market.
Their Fertilisers are offered under two forms :
1. ETIWAN. NO. 1.-PURE SOLUBLE PHOSPHATE, guaranteed f' on tain 24 percent, of
Dissolved Bone Phospbato of Lime, $00 per ton, 10 per cent, discount for ?. tah.
2. ETIWAN. NO. 2.-PERUVIAN SUPER-PHOSPHATE, guaranteed to contain 20 per cont,
ot Dissolved Bone Phosphate, and ll tn 3 per cent, of Ammonia, with ? sufficient audition of Peru

WE ALSO OFFER;
DISSOLVED BONE, of high grade, fer planters or manufacturers, who may desire to mix Into
any other compost, and we suggest that this is the bost and oheapost method for manufacturers to

season upon my Cotton lands, I would etat? that it haafllxeeeded my expectations,' its spplteaiiee
having been attended with the moat favorable results. I used it in connection with the popnUj
Phosphates of tho duy and Peruvian Guano, and unhesitatingly gi to the preference to Meairt. Wa.
Crichton A Sou's Ammoniated Super Phosphate, whioh I regard us tho beat fertiliser for Cotton thu

In reply to your ?nquiry regarding Wm. Criohton A Son's Ammoniated Fertiliser rent to malas)
spring, I can give my own and Mr. J. M. Fowler's experiments. I triol it on Cotton, aide by lida
with Peruvian Qunno-coating $112 per ton-and in the same quantity, and the difference waa eea
aiderable, being in favor of tbe Fertiliser. The Colton grew from two to three inches taller, ul
was bolled in proportion.
Mr. Fowlor. on? of our best formers, and elosest and most accurate observers, told me he trisi
Peruvinn Guano, Soluble Pacido, Wando Fertilizer, and six or seven others, the ehaapeat of anita
coat $65 per ton, and Crichton's Fertilizer beat them all.

I uaed Wm. Crichton A Son's Ammoniated Phosphate on both Corn and Cotton, at the rstsaf
200 pounds to theaoro. The reanlta were very good, although we had a very dry sesaoo. Ian
(aliened it is a valuable manare, sa it was applied on poor land, whioh ls the place to teatanythlls
of this kind. I reoommend it to planters as a good fertilizer.

"This year I have experimented with ten different fertilizers of the most popular branda-aal
"Wm. Criohton A Son's Ainmnniated Soluble Super-Phosphate of Lime" is at present only equalled
by two of the manures. I am not quito through picking, but there is so little yet to be pioksd, thal
it will not materially alter the above statement or result.
I can without hesitation reoommend this fertilizer to planters as a No. 1 Cotton Manure.

"I used the Ammoniated Snper-Phosphate of Lime of Wm. Crichton A Son en three aorei of Cot?
ton. Th? summer was remarkably dry ; yet I am well pleased with the result. The yield of Collei
being much groater where the feriiliier waa used, and paying me handsomely. I ean cheerfully rt
oommeod it as a first class fertiliser. Th? well known integrity of the manufacturers is a luOeiat
guarantee for its uniformity."

Messrs. Wm. Crichton A Son, Baltimore;
"I write to say, that so far as I have beard from the "AMMONIATED SOLUBLE SUPER?
PHOSPHATE," the reports are very favorable indeed. Several planters who have med that and
the Peruvian Guano side by side, aay they cannot distinguish any difference. I have uaed both, tod
think your fertilizer shows fully aa well as the Poruvian, and believe th?ro will b? a great deoead
