' "Swing Clover 8eed. .
Th,diiou!tiea of saving tho teed are
ijnaginarj,, the process ia aiinptts and easy
After the tlover field boa been cut or gra
let the second growth conio on. When
about two-thirds of the heads bare 'turned
brown, cnt, with a- cradle, throwing the
grass itito double swaths, and cure.' When
cured rake up in the. morning while 'the
dew continue on, into convenient parcels
for loading with a pitch fork, and as soon
as all danger from beating id obviated, get
it under shelter, either iu tlio barn, or pro
tected in the fluid. Bo careful not to put
it away whilo any moisture remains in the
plants, and, on the other hand; don't ban"
die it rudely when verv dry, where you
don't want the seeds to fall, lor in that con
dition the beads shell freely. Having shcl
. tared it you may wait if you choose, till
winter affords leisure fur threshing, or trea
ding out.
Tbe second crop produces more seed than
the firtt, and hcuco the economy of first
cutting, or gruzing the field, though from
that cut for hay, a prudent, oareful bus
landman might easily save enough seed
for his own use. It is believed that, more
need may be saved by mowing when about
two thirds of the beads have turned brown,
than at any other period; cut soonor, too
many of the seeds are uuripc, and if later,
too many scatter out of the heads in crad
ling and handling. If tbe beads break off
and fall through the fingers iu cradling,
cover with cotton or linen cloth: Every
fawner may easily save bis own seed. There
is abundant time for clover to make good
heads, well filled with seed, after the hogs
have been turned upon the rye, or after the
first crop of buy has been taken, and it
would surely be eeouimieal to preserve a
hujull portion of the Hold i'cr saving scud.
Save Your Plums Now.
We begin to thiuk this cau be done
without Mr. Matthews, if not with Lim
Ye were yesterday ou the grounds of one of
eur best horticulturists, aud saw the appli
catiou and have some faith in its success. 1
Our frioud thinks there is no chance for
mistake about its efficacy. He informed
us that heappliedit last year, af'er the cur
eulio had lYgun iis ravage? and that it only
saved iho.-e which were unstung, but many
of the plums ou which the insect bad left
bis card healed up and ripened well. The
liquid entdrs the opened wound and destroys
the egg. This is the only remedy he has
ever fuuud to avail against this slippery en
emy of one of our best fruit. His reocipt
is
. One peck of unslaekcd lime, Six pounds
of salt, On barrel of water.
The mixture is to bo applied with a
common garden syringe. If one application
ie not Huffiirieiit repeat it. A single appli
cation answered with him last year.
No time i to be lost; us the young plums
are already set, aud the enemy has begun
to show himself. If a syringe is not to be
had sprinkle on the liquid iu some other
way. Tbe mixture is cheap aud easily op
plied, aud every man who has a phim tree
should try it. This is the most pbilisoph
ical remedy we have yet seen suggested,
and we commeud it with more confidence
than uiout new things to the notice of fruit
growers. If it answers our expectation?, it
will be worth millions to the country,
riutus can be grown ou loose, Bandy loams
as well ru clay' soils, to which they have
hitherto been mainly confined, on account
of tli ravage of this insect. Tbe cultiva
tion of this fruit indefinitely extended, and
we may make our own dried plums instead
of importing them from France. Those who
have Mr. Matthew's remedy in keeping
should hurry up their secret, or they will
be too late for the fair. American Ajrl-rulturiit.

: SLAVERY AXD KANSAS.
Mr. Howell Cobb, of Georgia, has writ
ten a letter on the present state of Nation
al polices, which we find copied with ap
proval in many of the Southern Democrat
ic printi. :
The extension of Slavery ia to be with
them, the real issuo in tha coming political
etmpaign The specific point ou which it
la to turn, will be, as Cobb cays, tbe ad
mission of Kansas as a Slave State into the
Union.
"The admission of Kansas is the para
mount question of the day." Tho potation
taken by Georgia in her last Legislature,
is that no man is worthy of political fellow
ship who denies the right of Kansas aud
all other territories to come into the Union
with or without Slavery, as their people
may dctermiue. This is tho doctrine of
the Democratic Party of this State and of
the sound Natioual Democrats of the north.
Upon this basis the National Democrat
ic party will staud iu the coming contest.
Id her ranks there will be lo place for
Free Soilers and Abolitiouists. Tbe man
who denies this doctrine should and will be
deemed unworthy of fellowship in the
Democratic ranks. Presenting as the Na
tional Democracy do, this Catholic platform
to tbe couutry, the question comes home
to every Southern man as to his individual
duty in tbe matter. If, wo desire the ad
mission of Kansas and seek to establish ou
a firm and lasting foundation the great prin
ciple involved iu the question of her admis
sion, why should we not uuite with tbe ouly
party that can and will enable us to effect the
object?
Being in the minority iu Congress, we
ar powerless to carry any measure except
by votes from the North. The policy i
profess affords the only practicable mood
of securing the admission of Kansas as a
Slavo State. If it fails, we would be iu the
same position as if we now abandoned our
friends at the North aud commenced at once
to rely upon our uwn resources. If ou the
contrary we succeed, we shall have carried
our measure, secured our equality and just
rights aud at tho sauietime preserved in
violate that American Union which we
hold '"secondary in importance only to the
rights aud principles it was designed to per
petuate."
Having stated the question in this ex
plicit and unequivocal way, Mr. Cobb calls
upon tho people of tho South of every par
ty and name te rally to the staudard of the
old Democratic party. lie reminds them
that the patriotic Whigs of Virginia sac
rificed their party prejudices tocoalescoiu
tbe election of Wise, tha'. their success
should encouriigc tbe whole south to place
themselves in a position to defend the south
ern policy, on the question of Slavery, and
rally as a unit on tbe Democratic National
Platform as upheld by the administration
of Gen. Pierce, and as promising most for
the South, most for success in the coming
Presidential campaign . Fusion is here pro
posed with "the Democratic party on the
ground of Southern leaning, no less than
a common opposition to the Ameoiean par
ty.
Americanism in New Jersey.
. The Americans of Trenton are sound !
At a receut meeting of one of the Couueils
in that city, resolutions were passed con
demning the action of the National Coun
cil in adopting resolutions favorable to sla
very, denouncing tha repeal of the Mis
iouri Compromise as an infraction of the
plighted faith of the nation, and deniand-
ng its restoration, that settlement of
the tdavery question effectod by .such pat
riots as Clay, Calhoun, Monroe aud Adams,
should be very sacred to the American
people, mid its disturbance by those trait
ors to freedom, Pierce and Douglas, and
their fellow conspirators, be condemned
and dvnouoeed by every true friend of
Freedom. The proportion of tbeAmeri'
can State Council of Pennsylvania to hold
a National Council at Cincinnati iu Janu
ary next, was endorsed, and a resolution
adopted . approving of the action of thoso
delegates from tbe Free States who pro
tested against und opposed tbe adoption of
tho Slavery rcsolutiou iu the Philadelphia
Convention. Wo repeat, tbe Americans
of Trenton are sound, and New Jersey
will bo found on tbe same platform with
tho Amerieaus of the other Free States.

by long resilience, divested themselves of
all foreign allegiauco, either political or re
ligious, and become fully Americanized
2. Riwh'fd, That while wo contend for
the exercise of our Native American influ
ence in political matters, we would cheer
fully leave the free exercise of their relig

Hanging and Quartering Democrats.
Such is the threat of the old Hunker
Democratic ("Journals which are constant
ly denouncing the K. N.' for their waut
of liberality.
A lato number of the Richmond Exam
iner commences an article iu this wise:
"Know Nothing Democrats We are rc
queutly solicited to hutij and quarter the
unoitunate Democrats found lurking iu
the culverts where they were broken open
at tho lato election, and their contents cx
posed to tbe gaze the public. They ap
pear to be regarded as unhappy prisoners
of war, to whom all of thejritntye and
riqlds of 'captives shouldle denied.
Such Is the right in which old Hunker
ism regard all who have had the manhood
to leave its embrace aud to take position
in the American ranks.
All priviltyns and rights are denied you
old Democrats and your eolaborers iu
Democracy are determined to "hang und
quorkr."
Sec to it, that they have no opportunity
in Ohio, of putting their benevolent inten
tions into practice.
A Hit at Somebody. The New York
Sun snys "we have heard of ladies who
will pay sixteen or eighteen dollars for a
uew bat in Broadway, and yet cut down to
the lowest possible figure the price of work
which they give out to poor seamstresses.
They will pay five dollars without a scru
ple for the mulang of a plain dress in a
fashionable Broadway establishment, where
girls sew ten or eleven hours a day for
three dollars and a half a week ; and u
they are afterwards obliged to employ an
unpretending dressmaker to alter it they
"rumble at paying her a fair remuneration
for her services. Fashion is a heartless
thing, the fruitiul source of folly, extrav
agance and dishonesty."
Poi'I'Lation of Texas A letter from
Texas to the Journal of Commerce, says :
"Our population is now estimated at up
wards of six hundred thousand, and it will
doubtless reach a williou before 1860.
Five religious deuominatious are uow rep
resented in Texas iu the department of re
ligious newspapers. We bavo two tem
perance and one ogrieultural periodical.
Tbe various religious denominations and
benevolent associations arc all succeeding
well."

the engine which exploded on the Vermont
Central road, throwing the cars off the
track, and causing the death of three em
ployees, was sti-uck by lightuing. The
train was going at full speed, on a high
embankment, through a swamp. "Jersey

asters, than the natural clement which
comes with the storm cloud. Such a cas
ualty from lightning, may not be impossi
ble, but that it was the effect of careless
ness as or inattention to duty from some
cause is more likely.

Some of the largest hotels in New York
