Deep Cultivation.
Charles Barnard, in tho last n timber of
the farm Journal, makes tho following
satisfactory communication On this subject.
Wa hate never had a doubt as to the ad
vantages of judicious Rubsoiling.
Uaviug directed my attention somewhat
to a deeper cultivation of the soil, and ad
vantage arising therefrom, in the fall of
'52, 1 purchased a Michigan Double Plow,
mid used il for plowing my oats stubble,
(drat hauling out the manure which cover
ed but a part of tho field,) and plowed it
to the depth, the mauure and a greater
part of tho top soil, it gave the field a dif
ferent appearance than it ever presented
before. A subsoil of five or six inches
seemed but a poor prospect fof a crop of
wheat, and the question was frequently
asked. "What do you expect to raise on
that field?" However, I prepaied ground
drilled in the wheat. It came tip uncom
monly well and soon covered the ground.
As to the average yield I cannot say, not
having threshed all yet. But I am confi
dent thatf on tho manured part there was at
least twenty-five bushels per acre. To the
remaining part of tho field, applied 330
lbs, of Jordons phosphate of Lime per acre,
which did not benefit tho whout much, but
had an astonishing effect on the young tim
othy forcing it to such a growth as to in
jure the wheat. Tho grain on this part
was purfect and weighed heavier than the
other, but the" wheat did not shell out
hence less tho yield. In the spring of '54,
I used the same plow for corn, plowing the
same depth. I plowed abont six acres
with it, leaving one acre in the middle of
tho field, for I used a common plow, pre
pared the ground and planted tho corn.
It came up equally well all over the field,
and no difference could be seen for two or
three weeks, when thero was a marked dif
ference in tho color. That on the subsoil
ed part was a pale yellow, and looked rath
er sickly, while the other was a dark green,
and looked more like making a crop.
This had a tendency to doubt on my part
as to its answering for corn. Bnt as the
season advanoed so did the corn, particu
larly that which grew on the subsoiled part
vof tho field, and in a few weeks there was
also a marked difference in favor of that
subsoiled, and the yield was one-third more
per acre, and of asuperior quality. I have
also used it. for vegetables, and find the
same ' beneficial results. I will add that
I havo full faith in subsoiling, and believe
the Michigan Double Plow to be prefera.
tie to any other that has come under my
notice.
Settitg Out Trees.
On the opening of early spring, a large
proportion of onr readers are particularly
interested in any plain, simple directions as
to the best manner of setting out trees, and
especially so, when in that way, common
fatal errors are avoided. Let us therefore
suggest.
1. Do not set them deep- This is the
secret of the grand discovery of tho great
law of vegetation, for which Russell (,'oiu
stock asked the small sum of one hundred
and fifty dollars :
"That the "seat of life,' in a tree or plant
is just at the point where the earth should
cease to cover the foot of the tree. If cov
ered deeper it strangles the tree at said
seat of life or forces it into sending forth
suckers, which stifles all healthy progress
in the trees."
Now, the discovery is not a new one,
that trees must not be too deeply planted ;
certainly no deeper than they were when
growing in the earth previously. With
out doubt thousands of dollars worth of
trees aro annually lost to our country by
this simple error.
2. Put nothing but pure and finely pul
verised earth around tho roots. Many
persons are told ther lands want manure,
ashes &e., and not having time to manure
and ash their whole field, they as a substi
tute, put these substances inta the holes
for the trees, and mingle it in tho earth
with which they cover the roots. This is
all rong. The soil may need manure and
ashes, but these should be composed in the
soil before allowed to come in contact with
the fibrous roots of tho young tree.
3. Mulch tho tree after setting out.
Mulching consists in piacing the manure!
bo it new or old leaves, tanbaik or whatev
er is used, loosely on the Burface of the
pronnd for a considerable space aronnd the
tree. On no account mix it with the soil
in transplanting.
4. Tho first step, and most important
in prepaiing for a fruit yard, is to thor.
ouchlv drain the soil. The tree cannot bo
healthy and vigorous witHout this.
6. Take cate of tho tree after setting it
out. Many persons do not bestow as much
labor on a tree, which ought in ten years
to yield an income of ten dollars per an
num, as they do on half dozen hills of po
tatoes. They do- not seem to bo aware
how great the difference is between the
quality and quantity of fruit on a kindly
treated, well fed tree and that of ono half
starved nnJ dwarfed. Let it be always re
membered, that whatever is worth doing
at all, is always worth doing well. Am

The First Index Expwgatorius.
That most narrow-minded aod bigoted
monarch, Charles V., has the honor, orin
faniy rather, of being the author of tho
first Index Expurjratoriua. ' In tho year
t546, being desirous of arresting tho pre
press of the new opinions in Flanders, he
directed the theological faculty of the Uni
versity of Louvain to draw Tip a catalogue
of such books as ought not to be road by
the people. Ten years later, this cata
logue was by an imperial decrco much en
larged. Tho pope did something of the
same sort, but only with referenco to his
own temporal dominions. But in 155!),
Paul IV. resolved to frame a catalogue on
the most rigid principles, and mako its ob
servance universal. This Index was ar
ranged in three divisions. The first con
tained the names of authors whose whole
works were interdicted. The second em
braced the names of those authors some of
whose works only were specified and for
bidden. Tho third pointed out certain
anonymous publications which were un
lawful to be read. To which was added a
list of more than sixty printers whose pub
lications were all forbidden, no matter in
what language they worn printed, or what
subject they treated. This was the origin
and foundation of the famous Jndex Ex
purgatorius, by which Homo has been
striving to reduce the world to the darkness
of the middle ages. The condemned books
were doomed to the flames; and severe
penalties were decreed against those who
should neglect to give them up. The pro
mulgation of this barbarous decree spread
consternation throughout Italy; but not
withstanding the reluctance and hesitation
manifested in certain quarters, the work
of destroying heretical books commenced
and went bravely on in all parts of that
country. All libraries, public and private,
felt the expurgating progress. An im
mense number of books were consumed.
The trade of the printers and booksellers
was ruined. Tho disastrous effects were
felt not only at Venice, where so many
books had for a century been published,
but also at Lyons, at Geneva, at Zurick, at
Basle, at Paris, at Leipzic, and at Frank-fort-on-tho-Maine.
Not only were the
books which had been written by Protest
ants, and by those who were suspected of
favoring tho new opinions, destroyed, but
even those which contained any notes or
scholia written by such persons. All the
works of Erasmus, and also the editions of
Cyprian, Jerome, and Augustine, which
ho published, were condemned, because
they were polluted with his critical anno
tations. Upon the death of Paul IV., a
new Index was published by the Council
of Trent, which was more select and dis
criminating. It included a great number
of Protestant authors, but it omitted some
Popish ones, whose sentimeuts were so
similiar to those of the Protestants on cer
tain points, that they had been put into
the first Index. From this epoch com
menced the barbarous practice of defacing
and mutilating those portions of certain
works which were considered worthv of
condemnation. This was sometimes done
by besmearing tho heretical page with
some black adhesive substance, which rcn
dc.ed it illegible. Sometimes the prohib
ited portions of a work were covered with
prints taken from other works, so as to
present a most wonderful appearance.
Sometimes the condemned pagesor parts
of pages, were wholly or partially torn
out. Dr. Baird't Sktteha of Protestant
ism in Italy.
Kn ow Nothing Progress.
The Know Nothings of Massachusetts
held a State Convention in Boston, on the
1st inst. Tho attcndcncc was large.
Hunker officers were thrown overboard,
aud thorough auti-slavery men substituted
by largo majorities. Tho question of sla
very was fully discussed, amid much excite
ment, and resolutions adopted declaring
tne nostnity or mo orucr to slavery, iierc
are the resolutions :
Resolved, That whilo tho American
party of Massachusetts fully recognizes the
rights of tho States to regulate their own
domestic affairs, we claim and shall under
any circumstances exercise the right to re
lievo tho Federal Government from all con
nections with, and responsibility for the
existenco of the Sectional Institution of
Slavery.
Resolved, That wo discountenance all
attempts to stifle the freedom of discussion,
and the freedom of action upon all tho
great moral questions of tho ago, and will
resist any attempt to exclude from our
ranks any person on account of his opinions
upon such questions.
This is progress ijn the right dircction.
Wo hail it with joy. It is said that the
order in this Stale have placed themselves
substantially on the same ground. Bcu

'little Children. "'
Ah, these lit tlo children! little witches!
pretty oven in all their thoughts and absur
dities! See, for examplo, yonder little fol
low in a naughty fit, ho has taken his long
curls over his deep' bluo eyes tho fair
brow is bent in a frown the roso leaf is
pushed up in defiance and the white shoul
der thrust forward. Can any but a child
lotk so pretty, even in their naughtiness?
Then comes tho instant change-flashing
smiles and tears as tho good comes 1 ack
all in a rush, and you aro overwhelmed
with protestations, promises, and kiss
es. .
They aro irresistible, too, these little ones
They pull about the scholar's pen tumblo
sommcrsetts over his hooks, and what can
you do? They tear up newspapers-li ter
the carpets break, pull, and upset, and then
jabber and talk unintelligible English in
self-defense and what can you do for your
self? "If I had a child" says the precise man,
you should see!
lie docs havo a child and his child tears
up his papers, tumbles over his things,
and pulls his noso like all other childrcn-
and what hai tho precise man to say for
himself? Nothing. lie is like every body
else "a little child shall lead Vvn."
Poor little children, they bring and
teach us human feelings more good than
they get in return. How often does the
infant, with its soft check and helpless hand,
awaken a mother from woridliness and ego
tism to a world of new and higher feeling.
How often does the mother repay this, by
doing her best to wipe off, even beforo the
time; thedew, and fresh simplicity of child
hood, and make her daughter too soon a
woman of the world as she has been.
The hardened hcai t of a worldly man is
touched by the guiltless tones and simple
caresses of his son; but ho repays it in time
by imparing to his boy, 'all tho crooked
tricks aud ways that have undone him
self. Go to the jail the penitentiary-and find
the most sullen, brutal, and hardenedthen
'ook at your infant son.
Such as he is to you, such to some moth
er was this man; That hard hand was soft,
arid delicate that tough vciee tender and
lisping; fond cyc3 followed as he played
and ho was rocked as something holy.
There was a time, too, when his heart, soft
and unworn, might have been molded to
to the questionings of his Maker, and been
sealed with the seal of Heaven. But harsh
hands seized it and it is over with him
for ever.
So tho tender weeping child he is mad
tho callous, hearties man, of the all believ
ing child tho sneering skeptic, of the
beautiful and modest-the shameless aban"
doned; and this is what the world does for
the little one.

The gentleman dropped his knife and
fork, seized her hand and giving it a hear
ty shake, we thought tears were going to
drop from h"s twinkling eyes.
"Madam," said he, "I respect your sen
