Col Moncitoiyof the British grenadiers,
killed at Monmouth, lies buried within six
feet of the west eud of the church. He
was a gallant officer, and of splendid per
tonal appearance No monument is there,
but his name rudely cut on the building,
marks the spot. .
The Rev. William Tennent, remarka
ble for bis piety, and devstedness to the
Christian cause, was, for a long period, tbe
pastor of this church. - lie came from Ire
land in 1718, with his father, the Rev.
William Tcnncut, and was educated under
bit tuition, at tho Log College, on tbe
banks of tho Neshaniincy. ' Being of a se.
rious turn, he resolved to devote himself
to the gospel ministry, and commenced the
study of divinity under the direction of his
brother, the Rev. Gilbert Tennent, pastor
of tho church at New Brunswick. While
there, he was thrown into a remarkable
trance, and remained apparently dead for
a number of days. The following account
is from a Life of Mr. Tennent, ascribed to
Elias Boudinot, LLD., and first published
ia the ", Evangelical Intelligencer, a work
printed in Philadelphia.
'," "After a regular course in theology, Mr.
Tennent was preparing for his examination
by the Presbytery, as a candidate for the
gospel ministery. II is intense application
affected his breast, and be bad a slight
hectic. ; lie soon became emaciated, and
at length was like a living skeleton. His
life was now threatened. Fe was attend
ed by a physician, a young man wno was
attached to him by the strictest and warm
eat friendship. He grew worse and, worse,
till little hope of his life was left In this
situation his spirits failed him, and he be
gan to entertain doubts of his final happi
ness. . He was conversing one morning
with his brother, in Latin, on the state of
bis soul, when he fainted and died away.
After the usual time, he was laid out on a
board, according to- the common practice
of the country, and the neighborhood were
invited to his funeral on the next day. In
the evening, his physician and friend re
lumed from a ride in the country, and was
afflicted beyond measure at the news of his
death.' He could not bo persuaded that it
was' certain ; and on being told that one of
thd persons who had assisted in laying out
tho body, thought he had observed a little
tremor of the flesh under the arm, altho'
the body was cold and stiff, and he endeav
ored to ascertain the fact. He first put
his own hand into warm water, to make it
as sensible as possible, and then felt under
the arm.- and at 1 the heart, and affirmed
that he felt an unusual warmth, though
no ono else could..- He had the body re
stored to a warm bed, and insisted that the
people who had been invited to the funer
al should be requested not to attend. To
this the brother objected, as absurd the
eyes being sunk, the lips discolored, and
the whole body cold and stiff. However,
the doctor finally prevailed, and all proba
ble means were used to discover symptoms
of returning life ; but the third day arri
ved, and no hopes were entertained of suc
cess but by the doctor, who never left him
day or night. The people were again in
vited, and assembled to attend the funer
si The doctor still objected, and at last
confined his request of delay Co ono hour,
then to half an hour,' and finally to fifteen
minutes. '! He 'had discovered that the
tongue was much swollen,- and threatened
to crack : be was endeavoring to soften it
by some emollient ointment, put Upon' it

About the expiration of the last period, and,
mistaking what tho doctor was doing for
an attempt to feed Lira, manifested some
resentment, and in a spirited tono said, 'It
' is a shame to bo feeding a lifeless' corpse
ond insisted, with earnestness, that the
funeral should immediately proceed. At
Ihi critical and important moment tbe
w body, to the great alarm and astonishment
. N presbnt, opened ' its "eyes, gave a
j dresdful groan, and sunk again into appal

'Mr. Tennent contiuued in so weak and
loir a state for six weeks, that great doubts
wero entertained of his final recovery.
However, after that period he recovered
much faster j but it waa about 12 .months
before he was completely restored. ' After
be was able to walk around, on a Sunday
afternoon, his sister, who had straed from
cuurcn . iq atteoa 10 aim, was rcauiug iu
the Bibie, when he took notice of it, aud
asked her what she had in her hand. She
answered that she was reading in the Bi
ble."" no replied, ,What is tho Bible T I
know not what you mean. This , af
fected the sister so much', that she, burst
into tears, and informed him that he 'was
once well acquainted with it. On her re-
porting mis to tue urouier wucn uereimu-
ed, Mr. Tennent was found, upon examina
tion, to be totally ignoraut of every trans
action of his life previous to his sickness
He could not read a single word, neither
did he seem to have an idea of what it
meant.. .As soon a he became capable of
attention, ho was taught to read and write,
as children aro usually taught, aril after
wards began to learn the Latin language
under the tuition of his brother. One day
as he was reciting a lesson in Cornelius
Nepos, he suddenly started, clapped his
hand to his head, as if something had hurt
him, and made a pause. His brother ask
edhim what was the matter. He said that
he felt a sudden shock in his head, and it
now 6eeraed to him as if he had read that
book before. By degrees his recollection
was restored, and he could speak the lan
guage as fluently as before his sickness.
His memory so completely revived, that he
gained a perfect knowledge of the past
transactions of his life, as if no difficulty
had previously occurred. This event, at
that time, made a considerable noise, and
afforded not only mattes of serious contcm-
lation to tho devout Christian, especially
when connected with what follows in this
narration, but furnished a subject of deep
investigation and learned inquiry to the re
al philosopher and curious anatomist.
The writer of these memoirs was greatly
interested by these uncommon events, and
on a favorable occasion, earnestly pressed
Mr. Tennent for a minute account of what
his views and apprehensions wsre while he
ay in this extraordinary state of suspend
ed animation. He discovered great reluc
tance to enter into any explanation of his
perceptions and feelings at this time; but
being importunately urged to do it, he at
length consented, and , proceeded with a
solemnity not to be described : -
'While I was conversing with my broth
er,' said he, 'on the state of my soul, and
the fears I had entertained for my future
welfare, I found myself, in an instant, in
another state of existence, under the direc
tion of a superior Being, who ordered me
to follow him. I was accordingly wafted
along, I knew not how, till I beheld at a
distancaan ineffable glory, tho impression
of which on my mind it is impossible to
communicate to mortal man. I immedi
ately reflected on my happy change, and
thought: Well, blessed be God! I am
safe at last, notwithstanding all my fears.
I saw an innumerable host of happy be
ings surrounding tho inexpressible glory,
in acts of adoration and joyous worship ;
but I did not see any bodily shape or rep
resentation in tbe glorious appearance.
heard thoir songs and hallelujahs of
thanksgiving and praise, with unspeakable
rapture. I felt joy unutterable aud full of
glory. I then applied to my conductor,
and requested 'leave to join the happy
throng on which he tapped me on the
shoulder, and Baid, You must return to the
earth.' This seemed like a sword through
my heart. In an instant I recoliect to have
seen my brother standing before me, dis
puting with the doctor. The three days
during which I had appeared lifcles3, seem
ed to me not more than ten or twenty min
utes. The idea of returning to this world
of sorrow, and trouble, gave me such a
shock, that I fainted repeatedly.' He ad
ded, Such was the effect upon my mind of
what I had seon and heard, that, if it be
possible for a human being to livo entirely
above the world aud the things of it, for
some time afterward I was that person.
The ravishing sound of the songs and hale
lujahs that I heard, and the very words
that wero uttered, wero not out of my ears,
when awake, for at least three years. All
the kisgdoms of earth were in my sight as
nothing and vanity ; and so great were ray
ideas of heavenly glory, that nothing which
did not in some measure relate to it, could
command my serious attention.'

; " ; Deep Cultivation -v -
Chicles Barnard, in the last number of
tbe Farm Journal, makes tho following
satisfactory communication on this subject.
We have never bad a doubt as to the ad
vantages of judicious sub soiling. , .
. Having directed my attention somewhat
to a deeper cultivation of the soil, and ad
vantages arising therefrom,, in the fall of
'53, 1 purchased a Michigan Double Plow,
aud used it forplowing my oats stubble,
(first hauling out ; the, nianuro which cov
ered out a part of the field,) and plowed it
to tho depth of " twelve inches or more.
Covering to that depth the manuro and a
greater part of the top soil, it gavo the field
a different appearance than it ever present
ed before. A sub-soil of five or six inch
es seemed bot a poor prospect for a crop
of wheai, and tbe question was frequently
asked. "What do jou expect to raise on
that field ?" However, I prepared tbe
ground, and drilled in tho wheat. It camo
up uncommonly well and soon covered tho
ground. ' As to the avcrago yield per acre,
I cannot say, not having threshed yet.
iiut 1 am confident that on tbe manurou I
part, there was ac least 35 bushels per acre.
To the remaining part of the field, I appli
ed 3O0 lbs. of Jourdon's Phosphate of Lime
per acre, which did not benefit the wheat
much, but had an astonishing effect on the
young timothy, forcing it tosuch.a growth
as to injure the wheat. The grain on this
part was perfect and weighed heavier than
tho other, but the wheat did not shell out
hence less the yield. In the spring of
'54, 1 used the same plow for corn, plow
ing tho same depth. I plowed about six
acres wit h it, leaving one aore in the mid
dle of the field, for this I used a common
plow, prepared the ground, and planted the
corn, it came up equally well all over the
field, and no difference could be seen for
two or three weeks, when there Was a mark
ed difference in the color. That on the
sub-soiled part was a pale yellow, and look
ed rather sickly, while tbe other was a dark
green, and looked much more like making
crop. This had a tendency to doubt on
my part as to answering for corn. But as
the season advanced, bo did the corn, par
ticularly that which grew on the sub-soil
ed part of the field, and in a few weeks
there was also a marked difference in favor
of that sub-soiled, and the yield was one
third more per acre, and of asuperior qual
ity". I have also used it for vegetables
and find the same beneficial results. I will
add that I have full faith in subsoiling, and
bclievo the Michigan Pouble Plow to be
preferable to any other that has come under
my notice. " ,
About the depth which peas should be
planted j upon this point, experiments have
shown that one foot deep, the time of com-
ing np varies; from those sown three inches
deep, only forty-eight hours, while the pro
ducing season is continued two weeks lon
ger, owing to the fact, that the roots arc
kept cool a necessary consequence to suc
cessful Pea growing.
Planted at oue foot deep, they do not re
quire earthing up, as in the case with those
planted in the ordinary manner. Thus a
considerable amount of labor ia saved.
In very heavy soils, and those naturally
inclined to ba wet, eight inches deep may,
perhaps be most advisable, as the soil where
the experiments were made, was a clay
loam, but well drained. Querccs. Ohio
