It was on a sunshiny day on the
fourteenth of February, 1852, when
a young Southerner passing aown

in many ringlets over a neck of sur-

smooth as Parian marble; while her
large eyes beamed forth an intensity
of feeling, which impressed those who
saw her with emotions ot piety, and
Her manner was certainly some
what wild and singular, nevertheless,
the Southerner, too well bred to turn
haughtily, paused to listen to the fair
girl, whose toues of earnest entreaty
were evidently making sad havoc
with the poor fellow s heart
The Southerner, himself, a practi
sing lawyer in Richmond, Va., had
just arrived in Bostonwhere he had
come to attend to certain matters of
business connected with his profession.
He was quite familiar with the citVj
having some three years previous
graduated at the University rear
Boston. But familiar as he was with
many peculiarities of cities, he felt in
deed, surprised at the idea of a young
and beautnul stranger stopping him
in the street to ask him a singular
question: ; ' . , 1
'Will you marry me, sir?'
Now, Charles Knowlton or, as
they called him at home, Chas. Knowl
ton, Esq., was young, and. a bache
lor; and, like all young bachelors, in
tended to marry some time or other.
But the idea of being forced into
matrimony without a moment's warn
ing, and without knowing anything
about the lady who was to be his
bride, except that she was youDg and
handsome, rather startled him from
his propriety; and, for a moment, it
must be confessed, he stood gazing
with astonishment upon tho lovely
maiden, whose eyes seemed to flash
every moment, with re

just beginning to curl in scorn, as she

She curbed her feelings, however, lor
the time, , looking once more upon
him with her bright, beautiful face,
and repeated, with still more earnest
ness, if possible, her former inquiry:
iWill you many me, shT
Startled from his reverie at the
sound of. her voice, he was once more
aroused from' the statue-like posture
he had fallen into, on first seeing her,
though he still continued to gaze up
on the lovely being before him, with
out uttering a word- m . , .
'I must leave you then, sir, she
continued,' 'though Heaven alone
knows iny present misery. It is
true, I am asking of you a strange fa

yet find one whose manliness of heart

you: - .

And here, overcome with her feel

tiful eyes, while the lady turned, to

The young lawyer keenly felt the
awkwardness of his position, and po

for a stroll up the street, inwardly re
solved to learn more about the mat
frr if possible. : The lady s case
seemed to be so novel and singular.

; Knowing it to be past tho regular
dinner hour at the Tremont, where he
was then boarding, and to escape the
the noise and confusion of the street,
Charles proposed to the lady the pro
priety of adjourning to one of the
nearest saloons, where the subject
could be discussed more quietly and
satisfactorily with the aid of a cup of
nice coffee and some refreshments.
A moment later and we find the pair

A ; thousand ill-defined ' . thoughts
passed through the young lawyer's
mind. As we have already remarked, i
he was . highly romantic, yet he feit
that a loyely woman, apparently in
distress, was before him.
There was something so singularly
romantic in the whole affair that he
almost determined, at one moment to
comply with the lady's request In

nation of so romantic a marriage
might be he thought- ot his rela

house or rather your house.'

The vdue of this. cereal to the
country has never been appreciated.
Recent investigations and compari
sons show conclusively thnt it is of
more value than, any other agricultu
ral production, not excepting cotton,
about which so much has been said.
The culture of corn has wonderfully
increased withiu the l ist. few years;
its ratio of increase beiog far greater
than anv other nroduct. From 1S39
to 1 SiQ as npr census returns, the
increase was fiftv-eight per cent.
Wool is the next highest, its increase
being fifty per cent; cotton twenty-four
per cent; oats twenty; and
wheat sixteen. This is a remarkable
The cotton crop has not increased
half so rapidly as the ccrn Crop, and
ho claim of tbe former to tha titltf
of "king" is only in its influence up
on the commercial interests of the
country. , The cotton crop of 1S51
was nine hundred and twenty-seven
millions of pounds, valued at one
bundled and twelve millions of dol
lars, while the corn crop of 1850
was five hundred and ninety-two mil
lions of bushels, which at tbe lowest
possible price at which it can be es
timated, is of far greater value than
the cotton crop.
The Southern States are not suit
ed to the profitable growth of corn
the average product per acre south
of the latitude cf North Carolina,
with one exception, being but six
teen hushels; while in Ohio it is
above thirty bushels to tbe acre
and in New England it reaches near
ly to that figure. . The five States
Ohio, Indiana, Illinois, Kentucky
und Tennessee produce one-half of j
all the corn raised in the United
States. Tennessee and North Caro
lina are in the same latitude, but the
soil of the latter State i3 not suited
to the production of this cereal,
while tho former yields it abundant
ly. The profit accruing on a bushel
of corn to the farmer of Ohio, and a
nound of cotton to the planter of
Georgia, is in favor of the former.
The cost of raising corn is set down
at about ten cents per bushel, which
if sold for twenty five cents would
leave fifteen cents profit. Cotton
Cannot be raised at less than six cents
per pound, aud is worth eleven and
twelve cents, sometimes less, at tide
water. The corn crop is more sure
than all others. - Jt needs but a few
months to ripen it, and if the early
frosts of spring destroy the first
planting, it may be replanted with a
hardier kind, which will ripen gutii-
ciently early to escape the frosts of
The export of corn is increasing.
