Carrots and their Cultivation.
As wiuter fowl fur cattle and horses in con
nection withhay, carrots are very valuable,
;w J should be grown by every farmer who
has fitcck to consume them. Ou land
properly prepared, their cultivation is at
tended wiih little trouble, and tho return
they yiuLl fully as profitable as that of any
other product of the farm. The good in
fluence of the carrot upon the health and
thrift of animals fod in part upon them,
has frequently boon remarked upon, and
we now proposo to add a few hints upon
the best mode of cultivation.
Tho carrot, having a long tap root requi
res a deep mellow soil'jof a ssmdy or hiamy
character, though it will grow on a clay soil,
'.ill is will drained and manured, aud large
crops, have Leen produced in .such situal ions.
The grcuud shall be comparatively free
from stones, as theso obstruct the free
growth of the roots. It should be ploughed
deeply the deeper roots jthu better as
tho carrot will go down as far as the soil is
mellow, if it is as rich as it should be to sus
tain a continued and vigorous growth. It
should bo manured with at least thirty
loads of compost or well-rotted stable, man
ure, per acre, and very thorughly ploughed
and harrowed, so as to bo mellow as well
a.i rich, and then, if properly tended, a good
crop of this valuable root will bo returned.
Sward land, long seeded, and with a
deep fertile soil, is well suited to tho pro
duction of carrots. Manure freely upon
tho sod, plough deeply and neatly, and
then top dress with a liberal application of
compast manures. Mix this intimately
with the Eurfaec soil, by means of a gang
plough, or cultivator, and harrow, aud then
sow on the seed. In the use of such land,
and by such a courso of treatment, a new
surfaco soil, comparatively free from weeds,
is gained, and the grass being entirdy
turned under the expense of weeding is
much less than on the ground prepared in
a different manner.
How to treat Kicking Cows.
In the most cases the habit of kick
ing is contracted during the first mouth afi
tcr tho cow has had her first calf. If, as
it is often the case with well-fed heifers;
tho udder is a little feverish at the time, it,
often becomes so soro that it is impossible
kr the poor creature to stand still while
the necessary milking is being done. Fol
lowing 'the instinct of nature she kicks; and
Sliding she is thus for a moment freed from
puin, continues to do it till the anger of the
mill cer is aroused, and then a bad matter
is made much worse.
It is better in tho first place to tie the
heifer by the head, then set your left shoul
der gently but firmly against her, just back
of her right shoulder, grasp firmly the right
fore leg, below the knee, turning her foot
up backward till it touches the leg, thou
slip on over the knee a strap, or hoop, or
cord that will confiue it fast in that position.
While standing on three legs she will find
it difficult to kick so as to hurt you. Now
take a convenient sized cloth, and wet and
wash the udder thoroughly with tepid or
cold water, after which milk her as care
fully and tenderly as possible, using at the
sumo time such gentle and soothing lan
guage as is calculated to show her that you
do not wish to hurt her, but let her stru"
gle3 be ever so violent or provoking; miud
you keep cuutrolc of your own temper. An
outbreak on your part will as certainly be
productive of a bad effect upou the cow,
as an echoo will answer your own voice, or
as your imago will bo reflected in a mirror.
Kiuduess, combined with the perfect
2outrole you havo over her in thissituation,
I consider much the best way of breaking
hem; and after a few times 6hc will lift
icr foot lo be tied as readily as a horse
all to bo shod. Continue to milk her in
his way until the soreness is gone and she
will find it a gratification to be milked, will
often meet you os she sees you coming
with tho pail, and you will ever after find
it easier to get along with her should her
teats by chance get sore afterwardj.-Ou

Cultivation of Cariwts.-As noon as
the carrots appear, the cultivation and
working of the ground should commence.
Whilo the weeds are small, a light iron
toothed rake is capital tool ; it gives a
line mellow service, and the work of dres
sing is a rapid one. The ground should
be kept clean with the hoe and rake, until
tho tops cover the surface, which they will
do iu six weeks or two mouths time, when
no further care will bo needed. Digging
can be done in the case of largo crops with
a plough, turning a furrow from the side
of each row, when they can readily be ta
ken out by the hand. Storo in heaps iu

scarce, covering with straw and earth, as in

Biuall crops at the rate of fifteon hundred,

A bit of Romance. .
Five or six years ago, a rich Louisiana
planter died, leaving an only heir, a daugh
ter, who was not quite teventeen years old.
She, together with her fortune, was placed
in the charge of a g-tardian, who was dis
tantly related to the family. Her fortune
i anil her remarkable beauty, attracted the
attention of many suitors,auioug whom was
an accomplished young man from St. Lou
is, whose only wealth was his profession.
llis handsome person, and fasciuating man
ners won the ladys affections, and, without
the knowledge of her guardian, they were
Shortly afterward they moved to gt.
Louis, whe.re they lived together happy
for a time, aud a bright future seemed to
be before them. At the expiration of a
year, the lady having attained her majori
ty they returned to New Orleans, to claim
her fortune and live in the splendid old
family mansion. They were coldly receiv
ed by the occupant, who deliberately in
formed them the estate had passed to oth
er hands. They at once applied to tho
law for redress, and going through the
protracted formalities of two or three fruit
less suits, they were left penniless, and
obliged to abandon the case. Friendless
and dispirited, they returned to St. Louis,
where the husband, like, many other hus
bands, tried to drown the re meinbrance of
bin disappointment in the fatal cup. His
j wife entreated and admonished in vain. A
separation was the consequence, and the
husband became more reckless and dissi
pated thau ever. Driven at hist to desper
ation, the wife applied for a divorce, ob
tained it, and retired to a convent. This
restored tho wretched man to his senses;
he abandoned his former associates, return
ed to tho paths of virtue, and became an
industrious and respectable citizen.
A few months ago tho lady received a
letter from the son of her former guardi
an, informing her of his fathers death, of
his inheritance of the estate, and of his de
termination to make full restoration, clo
sing with an appeal to her to forgive his
misguided parent, and to come to New Or
leans and enjoy her fortune. She at once
complied with the generous request ; and
all her inheritance, together with the ac
customed interest, was restored to her.
Now comes the strangest part of this
most extraordinary affair. The young man
offered her his hand in marriage, and plead
with all tho earnestness of impassioned
love. He reminded her of all their child
ish attachment, of his deep anguish when
she became the wife of another, of the
long years of his silent sorrow. AH these
remembrances came up before her mind,
and gratitude plead eloquently iu his Javor;
but at last the wife triumphed over the wo
man. Sho thanked him, and gave him
her simple blessing; told him she had lov
ed but one, and could never love another;
and eutnafed him to take back all her
fortune, and permit her to return to the
convent. Finding her resolution unalter
able, the young man consented, on condi
tion that she would postpone her return
one month. He immediately wiote to the
former husband, who was ignorant of what
had transpired, offering him a first rate sit
uation, on -condition that he would come
immediately. The letter was signed by
the principle of a well-known firm, who
was apprised of every cireuniBtance in the
case. As soon as the letter came to hand,
the overjoyed recipient took passage for
New Orleans. He presented himself at
the place designated iu the letter, and at
once made himself known by showing his
credentials. He was conducted to the
rcsidenco of tho generous heir, where, he
was informed, the writer of the letter wait
ed to receive him. His name was an
nounced, aud he wa3 conducted into an el
egant parlor, and there, alone, he met the
woman whom he had neglected and dis
honored tho woman who had been forced
to leave hiin, but who would not quite
give him up.
A few days afterward, the city newspa
per announced the marriage of Mr.
and Mrs. . The estate was restored
to the lawful owners, and the reconciled
couple, made wiser and better by adversi
ty, aud are living happy together.
It is good to turn sometimes from the
cares and turmoils of politics, and contem
plate human nature rising up from the
depths of misery and despair, casting aside
selfishness, and reaching that standard of
purity and happiness which so few attain.
Tar, a Remedy for Horse Distemper.
Thomas W. Ladd, of Smithfield, Jeffer
son county, Ohio, writes tho Ohio Farmer
that he has found a remedy and cure for
"distemper" in horses. He sayB:
"Having three colts sick with this din-
case, an experienced farmer told me to use
tar, and he thought the sick colts would
Boon jecovcr, and that those who had not
taken the disease would not have it at all,
or but lightly. I followed his direction,
to my entire satisfaction. I gave the colts
morning and evening, as much as I could
readily get into their mouths with a paddle.
After a few applications, the sick ones com
menced running at the nose, their appetites
returned, and in a short time they had en
tirely regained what they had lost from
disease. Tho others never took it to my
knowledge. Some prefer mixing fish-oil
with the tar, but I used it alone, and I be
lieve it to bo entirely sufficient, if the arti
cle be good, pure tar. I would havo no
faith at all in the coal tar now in up in some
Lafayette Hit Religious Views.
A well authenticated and highly inter
esting passage in the history of General
Lafayette, has recently been rescued from
oblivion and placed upon record. The
manner in which this developcmcnt has oc
curred, is given iu detail in the New York
Observer. Of the affair we will give a
brief statemcut, in introJuting the histo
There has been a dispute between Prof
S. P. 15. Morse, of Poughkeepsie, N. Y.,
(the Telegraph Inventor,) and Dr. Spaul
ding, a Catholic Bishop, on the authentic
ity of the alledged sayiug of Lafayette :
"If" ever the Likrlies of the United Stales,
urc destroyed, 't will he. by Romish Priests."
Prof. M. affirms, liishop S. denies, and
charges the Professor with originating the j
sayiug. He asserts that it is not only
groundless, but is directly the reverse of
the truth, making the French patriot say
directly the opposite of what he did say.
Ho theu gives an extract from a letter said
to have bueu written by him from Paris,
in 1S2!I, to a Protestant gentleman iu New
York, iu which the following sentences oc
"I can not but admire your noble sen
timents of devotbn and attachment to your
country and its institutions. But I must
be permitted to assure you that the fears
which in your patriotic zeal you seem to
entertain that if the liberty of the Uni
ted States is destroyed, it will be by Ro
mish Priests arc certainly without any
foundation whatever. Au intimate ac
quaintance of moro than half a century
with the prominent and influencial priests
and members of that chureh, both in Eng
land aud America, warrants me iu assu
ring you that you need entertain no appre
hension of danger to your republican insti
tutions from that quarter."
Professor Morse pronounced this letter
of Lafayette a fraud aud demanded evi
dence of its genuineness
Tho Jesuit man, hard pressed, or some
adherent in his behalf, affects to give the
title of a small work published at Paris, in
ltfof), but does not give the publisher's
This alleged French book proves to be a
hoax or pious fraud, as the investigations
of Professor Morse fully show. He says:
"For myself, 1 need 110 other evidence
of its forgery thau the letter itself affords,
as quoted by you, especially as it is made
manifest iu the light of my own personal
intercourse with General Lafayette. My
first expectation, indeed, was that I should
actually find such a letter as you quote iu
the alleged book, aud in such connection
as would afford sonic clue to the culprit,
artd so I sent to Paris to procure the work.
To my surprise, 1 learned from my corres
pondent that the most eminent bibliopho-
lists of Paris, after dilligent search, know
of no such icoi h, aud they write lue with
one accord that "no such work is to be
fouud in Paris !" I could hardly bring
myself to believe, notwithstanding the well
known and avowed principles of your cor
poration warranted the cxtrcmcst distrust,
that the whole fraud had extended not
only to the forgery of a letter of Lafayette,
but to the forgery of a false title to a false
book, a false author, a false place of pub
lication, a false date, a false size, a false
number of pages, aud in connection with
these, a purely fictitious account of the im
aginary author, and all the other fabulous
circumstances of its ideal existence ! But
to this extent, iu the present state of the
research; this pious fraud seems already
to have reached.
"Since writing to Paris, I find that it
was not necessary for ine to have, written
there, in order to ascertain whetucr euch a
work had becu published even in any part
of France. In the Astor Library, of New
York, is the "Bibliographic de la France,
oi? Journal General de I' Imprimeric, el
de la Libruirc," which is a weekly period
ical containing a complete catalogue of all
the works published in Paris, or in the de
partments, arranged iu three tables : 1st.
Au alphabetical table of the wtrks ; 2d.
An alphabetical table of the authors, and
3d. A systematic table of tho works.
This catalogue is so comprehensive as to
include everything that is published in
Paris, dowu to a four-puyed ephemeral el
"Iu company with the accomplished Li
brarian of the Astor Library, I carefully
examined this catalogue and tables for the
years 183 1-5-30, and no such work, nor
anything that could be mistaken for it, is
therein to bo found. The most insinifi
cent four-paged pamphlet is not omitted,
and yet a work of so much political preten
sion as to occupy 21' pages is omitted I
With the fact bofore you, sir, you can
draw your own conclusions, and tho pub
lic will also draw theirs."
Tho Professor asserts that he received
from Lafayctto himself the motto which he
ascribes to him, but that he was not the
first who published and gave currency to
it. He names several publications in
which it appeared, so long ago as 1835 &
1837, and affirms that the writers did not
get it from him. The saying of the-Geu-
cral must therefore havo been expressed
to others besides himself.
In conclusion, he publishes a letter from
Rev. Dr. Van Polt, an aged and respecta
ble clergyman of tho Reformed Dutch
Church. To the following extract from
tho letter of this venerable divine, wo in-
vito attention, as it is of great interest,

"On my next interview and conversation
with Lafayette," says tho vencrablo Dr.
Van Pelt, "after his visit and return from
Boston, he said to me, 'my dear friend, I
must tell you (something that occurred
when 1 was in Bostou. I received a polite
invitation from ho chief Catholic Priest or
Bishop of the Horn in Catholic Chureh in
Boston to attend his church on the Sabbath.
I wrote him an apology, saying, as I
never expected to be in Boston again, and
as doriug the Revolution when in Boston,
I worshipped sitting by the side of his ex
cellency General Washington, and as I sco
that the churcliaud" the pewsare the same,
except as they are decorated with paint; I
wish to occupy the same seat iu that chureh
on tho Sabbath. He took it in great dud
geon, that I did not attend his church. But
I could uot help that. I followed my in
clination. Now, my friend, I must tell you,
that I was brought up in France a Roman
Catholic, and believed that tho Roman
Catholic Church was tho only true and
mother church, till I cume t this country,
where I saw his Excellency General Wash
ington, and the officers of the American
army of different religion, worshipping in
different churches. My eyes were opened.
I see men can be of different religion, and
worship in different churches, and yet be
good Christains;' then saying, 'It is my
opinion that, if ever the liberties of this
country, the United States 0 America
are destroyed, it will be by tha sttblilily o
tue Roman Catholic Jesuit Phiests,
foil they are the most crafty, dan
gerous enemies to civil and religiol'8
liberties. They have instigated most
of the wahs IN Euroi'E.' He further
said, 'I wish my country, France, had such
government aud national liberty as you
have in this country.' To which I replied,
asjiny opiuion, that neither Franco nor any
other country could havo national liberty
without the free circulation and knowledge
of the Bible. To which ho gave ready and
cordial assent. "With sincere respect and
