TO E. .
Rack'd with a thousand ills?the rosoate
Tints of morning, and ovening's gorgeous hues,
As set tho autumnal snn, were to my
Jaundiccd eyes, a tyro's feeble pencilling!?.
The variegated faco of nature,
With her forests wild, lawns and streams?
Yea ! cataracts and mountains lowering high,
Frowned as one vast waste of human woe ;
And my disordered mind, despised mankind.
And doubted (impious thought!) the love of heaven! !
Buried in darkness, tind in gloom, my (soul,
Like the blind eagle, fed as 'twere upon
Itself?reveling in misery and despair:
Heboid the change ! a sunny smile from thro
Sweet love, mv grief and darkness beamed away,
And all nature robed in hues of beauteous light.
So, morning dawns in radianco on the world,
And flowers, fount, hill, and dale illumes?
And glittering fount, and stream and ocean's spray,
The wilderness was refreshed, redeemed.
My heart, all petrified and hard by woe,
At the gentle pressure, of thy sacred wand,
Gushed with sparkling streams of living joy !
And now thou art to me, the light and love,
The beauty, fragrance, harmony of the world.
How sweet to bathe my soul in the bright smiles
Playing o'er thy checks like sunbeams o'er the rose,
Revel in the enchanting melody
Of thy song, soft as angel's minstrelsy,
And road affection in thy every act and word,
Thou, loveliest creature of the eternal mind.
Oh?Lmay our lives, like kindred streams?parted?
Now, mingle into one, and glide
Soronoly, 'mid sunlight and sweet flowers,
Onward through time, reflecting Ilcaven
In its courso, to the ocean of Eternity.
Newly Discovered Usu of tiig Sunflower.?Those
most experienced in the
cultivation of this plant are sanguine that,
with a proper soil and proper cultivation,
it is more profitable than wheat or corn.?
The seeds are more oleaginous than those
of the flax plant, and combine the qualities
for tnhlp iko i->f -I!"- ?:l - r? 1
uuv ui tub ucsi unvc uii j lui uuriling,
of the best snprm, without its smoke ;
and for painting it is said by painters who
have used it to be superior tj linseed, and it
is more rapid in drying, equally easy in
spreading, and without forming a much
denser coat. Prepared and eaten as artichokes,
the young cups of this plant are
very esculent and pleasing to the palate ;
the stalks are an excellent substitute for
hemp or flax, and for bee pasturage it is
equal to any plant, yielding, from its luscious
and numerous nectaries, an abundance
of the best and most palatable honey.
A writer in one of our agricultuial exchanges,
says that, on suitable soil, with
proper cultivation, it will yield on an average
from eighty to one hundred bushels of
seed to the acre. From five to seven quarts
of oil are calculated on per bushel. If this

it can be raised as cheaply as wheat or Indian
corn, ordinarily considered the most expensive
crops cultivated, the Sunflower I
must be a very profitable production. We i
have therefore cultivated it on a small scale, j
as usually in vacant spots, by the fences and
in places where the culture of other vegetables
were ineligible, and so far as our experience
goes, it ooroborates the above ascertions.
We find that the green leaves are
excellent fodder for cows, especially when
the feed in our pastures gets low in seasons
of scarcity and drought We generally
commence plucking them in July, taking
the lower leaves first, and feeding them out
at night, or, if scarcity of feed is great, in
the morning before turning them from their
jaiuo. ** c nave: auiiicumes given ItlCm
corn-toppings and the leaves of the sunflower
at the same time, and have (bund that the
latter are invariably preferred. The seed
of the sunflower is a most desirable food for
poultry, its highly oleaginous nature wholly
superseding the necessity of animal food.
Hens and Chickens?As the season for
rearing chickens is at hand, I beg leave, as
a professed utilitarian, to give to your readers
a hint of a plan which I have successfully
practised for several years, for economizing
the time of my hens, because, in this,
as in other instances "lime is money"?
or rather time is eggs, and eggs is money. |

?* liuu j. huvu a nuinuer 01 selling nens in |
process of incubation, the first one that comes
off with her chickens, I put in a coop, just
as the other people do ; when a second one
comes off, if a day or two has intervened,
? and I were to put the last hatched chickens
to the first hen, which has now had time to
become acquainted with the number and
color of her own brood, she will abuse and
kill the new comers, as intruders, especially
if they are of a color different from her own:
. instead of this I remove the first hen and
put the second in her place with the chickens
of both?when the third one comes off,
1 put ner in place o! the second?and give
her all the chickens, and so on until the last
hen has as many as she can attend to; a
large hen may comfortably brood twenty, five
orthirty chickens-?and the hens which have
been taken from the chickens, after being
shut up a few days, will resume laying
agian,.instead of wasting their time with the
I oare of a few chickens. I have known an
instance where one hen reared, thirty-eight
chickens to maturity.

It is possible that others have adopted the
same plan; indeed, the plan issoexceedly
simple, that it seems impossible that it
should not have occurred to more persons,
but as it is nut general known and practised,
it may perhaps be deemed a sufficient reason
lor giving this article an insertion.

apprehension, as it will not do the least
injury to the frames.
To Prevent Fuotii Rising when
Churning.?A lady sajs she had well nigh

she was advised to try saleratus which she

Original anecdoth of Gun. Worth.?
A friend of ours who regards himself as a
connoisseur in such matters spins out a yarn
in something like this fashion:?Some IS
or 19 years ago, major, now General Worth,
was military instructor at West Point ?
He was a hustling liille fellow, with an im- J
m-. nse amount of milil'iry spirit; spent his
whole time iti his duties, an;l always slept
in camp while the corps of cadet's were enPlinillfrt
nlllimirrh tut o fiiin lin"-'"

close by, where his family resided. One
night he had been at a party, and was returning
to camp sometime after midnight."
The sentinel, a cadet, hailed him and asked,
''who goes there?" ' The commandant, of
the corp.*," responded the major in his sharp
tones " Advance commandant, and giv^
the countersign!" said the sentinel. The
major tried a moment to recollect ; then
said he, "1 have forgotten the contersign,
but you know me as " " Guard no. G!"
shout ted the sentinel, dropping the point of
his bayonet 10 the level of the Major's breast.
"There's no need of calling the guard," remonstrated
the Major, "you recognise me
as major ." "Stop your talking, sir 1"
deliberately drawled the sentinel, holding
his bayonet in statu quo. It now began to
rain, and as the major was too military a
man to ever be seen with an umbrella, his
nnrfv r\ntr?trr urne m o ^ ?
vj v/u?.i iq ?f uo ii< w tun wajr iu ici;i;i\c a
comfortable soak. "Do you not recoguise
fiercely demanded he. "Stand still,
sir, and stop your talking," was the only
answer the poor major could get; and so
he had to stand and take the inist, until the
corporal on duty waked up a file of the
sleepy guard, and marched to the other end
of the encampment. Worth was at length
allowed by the corporal to pass on. He
was very wroth for a short time, but the
next vacancy that occurred among his corporals,
was given to the sentinel that had
afforded him so agreeable a lete-a-tete.

A Venerable Bible.?At the anniversary
meeting of the American Bible Society,
an old divine from New Hampshire, of
the Presbyterian denomination, called Father
Robbins, held in his hands the identical
Bible upon which the members of the
first Congress and President Washington
were sworn into office, and containing the
names of all the old worthies written upon
its pages. These, said Mr. Robbins, were
Bible times?and these, IJible men, and.
God blessed and prospered their labors ;
and under these men their country was prosperous.
God grant, sir, said he, that we
may again see such rulers and such times.
The Clock at Lunden.?The cathedral

structure, and lias a very lofty spire, which
serves as a mark for sailors, being seen at
a considerable distance. The altar of this
church is a beautiful piece of work ; but
what most engages the attention of strangers
is its curious clock, which, from the number
of its movements and fingers, may vie with
those of Lyons and Sirasburg. Every hour,
two horsemen come out and encounter, and
a door opens which discovers the Virgin
Mary sitting on a throne with her Divine
Infant in her arms, and the magi, with their
luuuut, muicaing in oraer, and presenting
their gifts, two trumpets sounding all the
time of the procession. The clock, besides
the hour, shows the month and day, and
every festival throughout the year.
Awful Consequences of Imperfect
Sepulture in Ireland.?In the neighbourhood
of Castle island and Ballylongford,
from the imperfect covering thrown on the
dead victims of famine, troops of dogs prey
from day to day on the bodies, this is not all:
violent madness is the result, which has al
ready led these rabid animals not only to
attack one another, but the cattle in the
Blasting with the Gun-Cotton.
Rocks are successfully blasted in England
with gun-cotton. In a large quarry near
Liverpool, experiments were made,and rocks
in huge masses thrown out, when powder
broke them in small pieces. Eight ounces
of cotton dislodgla. jmore rock than two
and a half pounds of. powder.
The Island on which the city of New
York now stands, was purchased twohun.

Anti-Inflammable Cotton.?It is curious
in science, as in other matters, how one
discovery is made when we are striving af
tersometlung else. 1 lie following is acurious
case in a point of finding the very reverse
of what was thought.
A physician in Georgia, in recently attempting
to prepare gun-cotton by a receipt
sent him by a brother physician, he was
unsuccessful, and found, to his astonishment,
that his cotton would neither explode nor
ignite, being anti inflammable. On investigation,
to find out the cause, he found that
he had not used the right acid, muriatic
acid we suppose. He repeated the proccss,
and the result was the same ; so that he
claims to have dicovered a method of rendering
cotton incombustible. He says that
this cotton can be prepared with little expense,
as he has tested the matter sufficient
to know that it can bo manufactured into
cloth, the lint and texture ol the cotton not

Santa Anna's Gamu Cocks.?In the pursuit
of the enemy, when he was flying fiom
Cerro Gordo, several of Santa Anna's game
coclcs, with their legs tied, were picked up
by one of our people,. The men were for
carrying them oflf as trophies, but General '
Twiggs being near by, and prompted no j
doubt a spirit of humanity, although some j
ha ve insinuated lie wanted to test Santa An- ;
nil's judgement in game fowl, ordered them >
to be unloosed. The cocks, when liberated, i
much, we suppose, to the disappointment j
of the general, instead of following the ex- j
ample of their illustrious owner and flying |
-to the field, went right into the field, went i
right into bottle and used their spurs with j
as much fierceness as he must have been I
plying his on his mule about the s^me time.
Gen. Twiggs, admiring the true game dis
pisiyea, ejaculated something that was not
exactly a Messing upon the Mexicans for ;
not showing as much pluck as their cocks
and holding their position a I ill i o longer.
We are not positive that there was any better,
nor have we consulted Parley on the
practice, for we know the general was right
in the main.?Picayune.
Expected Return of tiie Comet of
1556.?As long since as 1751, Mr. Richard
Dunborne, of"Cambridge, on computing the
elements of the comet of 1264, found them
so simi'ar to those of the comet of 155G,
that he was led to the conclusion thath the j
two were identical, and that its return might
he expected about 1843. Subsequent investigations,
which have b;;en made l?y
different astronomers, confirm this conclu
l-i. . t _ r i

look for the re-appearan.?c of this comet du- j

A Mexican Gtrl Fkee.?At Monclova,
a good looking Mexican girl of 1G years '
of age was held in servitude as a peon, \
having been sold by her father to pay a
debt. She was about to be transferred
to another mister, and was very much
distressed at it. Gen. Shields happened
to hear of it, and enquired what was the
amount of the debt for which the girl
Wi:s held in bondage. He was informed
the debt was five dollars. Small as this
sum was, it is not probable that she ever ;
could have paid it. Without further in- i
quiry, the general promptly paid the debt,
and restored her to freedom. The poor
girl was overcome with gratitude, and ,

his feet if he had permitt d if. Drying
her tears, she returned to her father's
house rejoicing?perhaps to enjoy life in
freedom?perhaps to be sold again.
It is said that Napoleon was accustomed
to remark, that when lie required any
"head work" to be performed, he chose an
individual with a long nose. "In my observation

To Preserve Peaches.?Clean your

We offer to the citizens of Abbeville and the
adjoining Districts, our improved SWING.
ING FULCKE PRESS. The invention
was not the result of mere chance, but oMor.g
experience and mathematical calculation.
As to power, it is equal, if not superior, to
any thing now in use. It requires less tim.
ber, easier framed, and put up in less time,
and vvith I.'fs danger than a screw; and the
Press will last as long as any timber protect
eel from the weather or above ground. From
tiie number of these Presses which tire now in
use from North Carolina to Mexico, we feel
no hesitancy in saying that they will supercede
the Screw ; and there are ten of our
Presses up to one of any other, and wo feel
justified in saving1 fifty to one. The average
duration of Screws in this District is not
more than four and a half 01 five years, and
as there is not less than five hundred Screws,
see what is pnid out in one year.
For single or individual rights, ?>15.00.

than there is in the country.
