SoolKTT. The Cincinnati Horticultural So
ctety met as tisnai, last Saturday, In Bacon's
Building. President Orange in the chair. .
The subject fbrdisenasion the grafting of
the grnpe-was called np and partu-ipVcd in
by Meiwrs.Motlier. Mdsher, Reemelin, Mullet,
Pierson, Warder, and others, but nothing was
elicited of sufltcient interest for publication.
The Secretary read a communication from
James Deniston, Of Eaton, Ohio. In regard to
the decay of npple trees, In which lie states
that some years ago ho hud concluded that
tlio injury done to the apple tree on the
South-west side was eaused by the hot sum
mer snn. But more recently he has come to
the conclusion that the Injury or sup blight
that is destroying our orchards so rapidly, is
caused by the sun's rays in the winter. In
support of this position, he offers the follow
1st. That the Intensity of heat communi
cated by the liuu's rays to the stock of a tree
is in proportion to ths lumber of siiid rays
that fuU on a given area of iusurfiue.
2d,- That the effect of said rays on trees is
the greatest at that time of the day when the
mercury ranges the highest. ; ,
3d. That summer rays to the horizon or
plane of the earth are winter rays to the per
pendicular object or body of a tree, and vice
vtria; consenuentlr. there are a orreutnr num
ber of the sun's rays full on a given area of
me sunoceoi a tree in the winter than in the
summer, which would of course produce
greater neat there in proportion to tlio tem-
fierature of the surrounding atmosphere thou
4th. That the mercury ranges further in the
Winter than in the summer, to-day 70degreis
above scro, and the sun impinging its rays
against the body of the tret .with the effect
and relation of a July sun to the horizon, and
perhaps in forty-eight hours or less, tlid mcri
cury.10 or 30 degrees lielow aero. With this
view of the case before us, is it any wonder
that our fruit-trees nre decaying? .,
Upon motion of Mr, E. P. Crunch, it was
. Keiolvtd, That the Nominating Committee
appointed to select suitable, persons, mem
bers of this society, to experiment on various
subjects, be instructed to add to the list a
Committee on rlurnl Agriculture.
Dr. W. B. Chapman presented a specimen
of the work of an insect on the common
raspberry, apparently the same as the ono
presented a few weeks ago on the gric vine,
wbieh the Committee on Entomology sug
gested nt that time to be a Cicada. Dr. Chnp
man stated that the grub of the Cicada leaves
the tree as soon as it is hutched, and Is pro
vided with six strong legs, its retreat being
the gronnd, where it subsists on roots, 4c,
the grub of the present insect seeming to be
a worm uesiitnto oi legs, and upparentiy nv.
ine on the pith of the plant. ,
The alwve specimen on the raspberry was
referred to the Committee on Entomology for
CAUUIIIlUllUU. j. - I ,
It was stated by some of the members that
the whole of the raspberry crop, in somo
places, hud been cut oil by the depredations
oi ine uoove insect.
Dr. Warder stated a fact that he had (lis,
covered in Entomology, viz: that some of the
common earth-worms were phosphorescent,
similar to the glow-worm.
The followinggentlemen were unanimously
elected to membership, viz: W. H. Snyre,
proposed bv W. H. Irwin." and T. H. Johnson
by E. J. Hooper, after which the Society ad
School- Board Prockeoimgs Last Nioiit.
The Board met nt the usual hour lust night,
President King in the Chair. The minutes
of the previous evening were rend and
An appropriation of $10 was voted to the

Mr. Gilpin, from the Committee on Public
Buildings, reported that the. old building in
the Eleventh District was perfectly sale, but
needed .repairs, and offered the following
resolution: . . .:
Rr.imhe4, That the Building Committee of
ine Boaru tic antnorizeo to repair tno old
part of the Eleventh District School-house,
at a cost not exceeding 500. '
Mr. JTnrrlann mnvprl a BiihstitlltA that. Ilia
Comtuiivow b. a,,ut,.it t ndvertise for
plans and specifications for a uew nouav.
jue following counter Teport was submit
ted ny the gentlemen who nod been called in
to assist uie uuiiuing committee' ,
"We; the- undersigned, having been re
quested to examine the Eleventh District
School-honse, on Clinton-street, have at
tended to that duty, and beg leave to sub
mit the following statement: We believe the
walls to be safe, and no fear of their falling
down; but inside of the building we can not
speak so positively; the floors being sunk In
some of the rooms two or three inches, and
the joists have drawn out of tlio girder, from
some cause not known to us, or have never
been properly put in. The brick pier in the
cellar that supports the girder is not sate, it
beinir snlit from the weiirht restinia tinon it.
The building will need a great deal of re
pair and outlay of money, to make it nil pas
sably or safe.- If that can be done, .which is
a question, with us, aud 'in 'view of the ex
cited state of the public mind on .that sub
ject, we would recommend that a new schooV-
Mr. King moved the subject lay on the
table in order that the Board may meet on

vated at an age when nnftrrc does hot furnish

No physician doubts that precocious chil
dren, in fifty rases for one, are much worse
fdr the discipline they have undergone. Tho
mind seems to have beeu strained, and the
foundations for insanity ore laid.. When the
studies for maturer years are stuffed into the
child's head, people do not,, reflect on' the
auutomicol fact that the bruin at au infant is
not the brain of s man; that the one is con
firmed and can bear exertion she other is
growing and requires repose; that to force
the attention to abstract facts to, load tlie
memory with chronological and , jiistorrcol

bo devoted to the education of , the heart-J-tb
the formation of prinuplos rather than to
tlie acquirement of what is usually termed
knowledge. Nature herself points out such a
course; for theeiuotionsare then the liveliest,
and most easily moulded, being as yet unal
loyed by passion. It is from this source that
the mass of men are hereafter to draw their

Mr. Wilson gave notice of a bill to more

Mr. Davis's resolutions were then taken '
up, and Mr. Chesnut made a speech in their
favor. The resolutions were then laid aside.
Mr. Hunter's motion to tade up the Indian
Appropriation Bill won lost.
Ihe House Homestead Bill was then taken
up. Senato then adjourned.

which, after amendment, was adopted, calling
for all information concerning the slave trade,
with instructions to naval officers, and the
opinion of the President whether further
legislation is necessary. '
. Tho House proceeded to the consideration
of the report of tho Covodo Investigating

Schcll, when Mr. Window made 11 minority
report, maintaining that tfiere is nu antlioritV
to inquire into the private contri.bntious of
any persons, unless it be hrst determined that
the purposes were corrupt.
Mr. Covode questioned tho right of Mr.
Winslow to Jiring in a minority report.
. Mr. Winslow maintained thnt he did so as
a question of privilege. '-
Mr. Covode wished to postjidnei the con
sideration of the subject in order to allow Mr.
Hickman to report ou the President's pro

Mr. Hickman raised a point of order that
Mr. Winslow's course was irregular under
the Parliamentary law.
, t The Speaker decided Mr. Covodo was en
titled to tho floor, and an appeal by Mr.
Winslow was tabled, 123 to 59.
Mr. Covode said he wanted tlie list in
Mr. S hell's possession, because it contained
tlie names of Government oflicers, and not
because it was signed by private individuals.
Mr. Hickman ineffectually sought to pre
sent his report. Adjourned.

The Isolation of Illness.
I see spring budding, flowering, leaf
staring, nd verdure-brightening, in won
drous beauty out of doors; but without met
am ictl behind while this gay procession is
gliding pest. We are no less islanded on onr
jf 1 because we are tenderly watched
and kindly administered to. It Is across a
gulf that they reach to us; they with whom
wo no uuiger sn aown to eat, or go tortn to
walk, or converse carelessly and gaily. Tho
mail comes in as usual with its news, but
from a world with which my pulses are not
in tune. The sun rises over familiar rivers
and mountains that I can not now visit, on
roads that 1 can not now travel, on well
remembered labor and pleasure that I can
not now share. Children come in to see me,
but not with their usual frolicsomeness and
freedom. Their voices are subdued with a
vagi e awe of the paler face and the invalid
surroundings. Of what I know as "the
world," I am no longer a part; no longer
necessary to its present day's doings and
completeness. And, strangely enough, there
is no pain in this conscious dismemberment
from the life around. Aa to the mere in
stinct, it is like undressing for sleep when
weary; laying off the clothes that to wear
with comfort we must be strong and wakeful.
A Beautiful Fable—Jove and the Sheep.
sheep was much from
all the animals. She came to Jupiter and
prayed him to lighten her misery. Jupiter
appeared willing, and said to the sheep:
I see, indeed, my good creature, I bave
made thee too defenseless. Now choose in
what way I may best remedy this defect.
Shall I furnish thy mouth with terrible teeth,
and thy feet with claws?"
"Ah, no," said the sheep, "I do not wish to
have anything in, common with the beasts of
prey." . .
"Or," continued Jupiter, ."sliall I infuse a
poison into thy spittle?"
"Alas!" replied the sheep, "poisonous ser
pants are so hated." 1
"What then, shall I 'do? I will plant
horns in thy forehead, and give, strength to
"Not so, kind father. I might be disposed
to butt like the be goat."
' "And yet," said Jupiter, "thou must thy
1 self be able to injure others, if others are to
be aware of injuring thee."
"Must II" sighed tbe sheep. "Oh, then,
kind father, let me be as I am, for tbe ability
to injure, I (car, will excite the desire ; and
n ia net icr vj suner wrong man to uo wrong.
I yray thee, let me be as I am."
Jupiter blessed the good sheep, and from
that time forth she forgot to complain.
