- it wittihoiiistrom the people the benign
influences of Christianity, the rrent ele
ment in the development of civilization..
It. withholds the Bible the sermon; it
has instituted a worship which wants nolli
ing of heathenism hut the name; that
worship U performed in. a language now
unspoken by anv living-people: it ex
cludes all reading from the people but such
as the priest permits acting on the priu
ciple that ignorance is (he mother of devo
tion, it erects no school tor the instruction
of the common mind; it substitutes the
feast day for the Sabbath;- the saints and
Viigin Mary for the Saviour; confessions
and penances, for faith in Christ; und
reverence for plnces, utimeanmg riles,' re
lies, for the fear of God. Sir, I say it with
deep sorrow. Popeiy is not Christianity.
It is a fearful perversion of the religion of
God; and Tor the evidence of these asser
lions I again point you to its influence up
on thu people where there is nothing K
eounieract it. It has degraded the. once
noblo Castilian until there is now none so
mean ns to do Jiim reverence; .Italy,' once
the seat ot empire, it has reduced to fee
blcness; and the once chivalrous Italian
who carried the eagles of his country to
the extremes of the world, to an ijrnoblo
slave. And it has rendered our noble
hearted, noble-minded, .impulsive country
men, the hewers .of wood and drawers of
water in nil the countries to which they
emigrate. - I. he degradation ot Ireland
whieh has made it a by-word, I charge up
on-Popery. - If the priests of Ireland wo'd
give the quarter of what they receive for
praying souls out of Purgatory, to the sus
taifiinir of common schools among the pco
pie, there might be three or more sucl
schools sustained in every parish in that
bleedintr, famishing, yet noble country
and its sons would have an opportunity of
rising to that position to which their tin-

them. ' ' ' ' V

Sniiitl Po.ntod, for Seed. '
Mr! C.: T. Alvo!d, 'of Wilmington, Vt,
says:., . .-: .. ,;, f,; (...,'
Some eight years since, at the time of
planting my potatoes, I came short of seed
to plant. i Pievious to this time, I used
large whole potatoes, or the seed end cut
oil, tor seed, and supposed no other would
answer, 1 resolved to try the experiment
of planting small potatoes, the size of com
mon plums, but the most ot them bein
smaller. I carried several bushels of these
little things to the field, and coin men
ced planting them, putting from two to
lour in a lull. ,
The potatoes' in-different parts of tlv
field came, up at the same time, but the
vines from the Email potatoes were not as
large nnd as.turitty as those from thelargi
ones. At the first hoeing there was some
difference in tho tops, but after that tl
tops from the small potatoes looked as well
as any in the held, and continued to thro
the season. When I. came to dig them I
found the potatoes, where the small seed
was planted, to be as good, in every re
spect, as those where the largo potatoes
were planted. : There was as many in a
hill and the potatoes were as large and
with as few, small ones, as those from the
large seed. . v. .: , , ,, ,
. ."Many of the farmers in this vicinity,
after seeing the experiment fairiy tried,
are using small potatoes for seed, who in
form me that the farmers whom they pur
chased from are gradually adopting the
way of using small, potatoes for ;seed.p

It will be perceived that while the value
of imports in 1854 exceeded those of 1853.
the Custom House receipts are less in the
tter than in Ibe former year. Tins ap
parent error is accounted for by the fact
that the abolition of tonnage dues, which
took effect during the last eiirht or nine
months of the year, reduced (he revenue
from that source -55,237 55; while the ag
gregate revenue for the year is only $3.
614 69 less than 1853. As the law will
e in force during the whole of 1855, the
loss will be the whole 88,000 which form

Os Ukrb asosadlIe Temptaiios. We
may in some measure ascertain the moral
condition of a man by tbe kind of things
that tempt him. There are some tempta
tions, the assaults of which, if we resist
them, imply no depravity of the mind.
uui there are other temotationt which.
whether we resist them or not. rould not
be trials to any but a thoroughly "disor
ered mind. ' thus, for an instance, were
the task imposed on a class of students to
write ' on some given subject, and were a
prize held out to the foremost candidate.
Und were the youth who trod the closest
r- . - -
on the neels of the winner, . to feel some
stirrings ofjnvy of disappointment.whiuh
ne ai once resisted . and put down, we
should feel that he was deserving of our
admiration',' rather than bur disapproval.
But if a duH and stupid youth, who had
no pretensions even to pass muster in the
class, were'to h.tng his vacant head with
mortification because he had not surpassed
the excelled who Dad won the prize; end
were he, by what; he thought an effort
of right principle, to quell the storm with
in, we should see at once that the trial,
though resisted, could not even have an-
pron.:hed him, unless he were a monster
of vanity and presumption. ' ' "'

List of a recent date, and, as they are

that countries, unlike , mankind, notwith

ten: years. - In . 1340, bngland imported
of cotton and wool 692,000,000 lbs;.-and

The undressed hemp in 1840 was 587,000

thrown silk in 1840 was ' 4,000,000 lbs.,
last year it was 8,500,000 lbs. In the
two periods respectively, the lumber im

sheep and wool, 49,000,000 and 106,000,

000,000 cwts; tea from 28,000,000 to 85,
