Fulton's First Steam Voyage.
The ft '.lowing reminiscence of Fulton's
first steam voyage, and the reception of
the passage money, was communicated to
the Buffalo Commercial Advertiser by R.
W. Hat-kins Some years since I formed
a traveling acquaintance upon a steamboat
on the Hudson river with a gentleman
who, on that occasion, related to me some
incidents of the first voyage of Fulton to
Albany, in his steamboat the Clermont,
which I never met with elsewhere. The
gentleman's name I have now lost, but I
urged him at the time to publish, what he
related, which, however, so far as I know,
he never has done :
" I chanced," said my narrator, "to be at
Albany, on business, when Fulton arrived
there in his unheard of craft, which every
body felt so much interest in seeing. Be
ing ready to leave, and hf arimr that this
craft was to return to New York, I re
paired on board, and inquired for Mr.
Fulton. I was referred to the cabin, and
there found a p'a'n, gentlemanly man,
wholly alone, and engaged in writing."
" Mr. Fulton, I presume."
' Via all-
" Do you return to New York with thia
bo" , ,

"You can take your chance with us,
I inquired the amount to be paid, and,
after a moment's hesitation, a sum, 1 think
six dollars, was named. The amount, in
coin. I la d in his open hand, and, with
an eye fixed upon it, he remained so long
mntinnlcsn that T Rtinnnsed there might
be a miscount, and 1 said to him, " Is that
This roused him as from a kind of rev
erie, and as he looked up at me a tear was
trembling in his eye, and his voice faltered
as he said, " Excuse me, sir, but memory
was busy as I contemplated this, the first
Decmiarv reward I have received for all
mv exertions in adaoiing steam tonaviea
tion. I would irladly commemorate the
occasion over a bottle of wine with you,
but, really, I am too poor even for that
just now ; yet I trust we may meet again
when this will not be so."
Some four years after this, when the
Clermont had been ereatlv improved, and
two new boats made, making Fulton's
fleet three b;ats reeularlv plvinK be
tween New York and Albany, I took pas
sage in one of these for the latter city.
The cabin in that dav was below, and as
I walked its length to and fro, I saw I was
very clcsely observed by one I supposed
a stranger. Soon, however, I recalled the
features of Mr. Fulton ; but, without dis-
closine this. I continued my walk and
waited the result. At length, in passing
his seat, our eyes met when he sprang to
his feet, and, eagerly seizing my nana,
exclaimed, "I knew it must be you, tor
your features have never escaped me, and,
although I am still far from rich, yet I
mav venture that bottle now."
It was ordered, and during its discussion
Mr. Fulton ran rapidly, but vividly, over
his experience of the world's coldness snd
sneers, and ot the hopes, tears, aisap
pointments and dimculties that were
scattered through the whole career of
discovery, up to the very point of its final
crowning triumph, at which he so fully
felt he had at last arrived. "And in re
viewing all these," said he, " I have again
and again recalled the occasion and the
incident of our first interview at Albany
and never have 1 done so without its re
newing in my mind the vivid emotion it
originally caused. That seemed, and still
does seem, to me the turning point in my
destiny the dividing line between light
and darkness in my career upon earth
fox.it was the first actual recognition of
my usefulness to my fellow-men?'

Some time during the early portion

The daughter of the condemned man
telegraphed at an early hour in the morn

begging of him a pardon for her only
support, her father. This message was
received by me from Mr. D. E. Norris
(now the Manager of the Westt.-n Union
Telegraph Office at Macon, Ga.,) at about
nine or half-past nine o'clock a. m. I at
once forwarded it to Richmond, and
awaited with some degree of anxiety for

numerous little offices between Lynch

their ground wire and most effectually
cut me off Here comes the trying time.
Here I was with the pardon of a human
life in my hands, and was unable to
forward it to its proper destination, owing
to that horrible practice some operators
have of resorting to their ground wire
to enable them to get possession

believe, over that same line, though if the
operators on that portion of the line had
been placed in the unfortunate and trying
p st on that I was in, they would never
resort to It. You must rt collect that the
execution was to have taken place at two

Va , was the person who obtained possession
of the line on that occasion.

How Coffee is Cultivated.
Thb manner of cultivating the coffee
plant varies but little in the several Cen
tral American States, and a short sketch
of how their favorite beverage is produced
may be interesting to all good conee drink
The coffee beans are first planted in hot
beds, from which, in a few months, they
sprout, and shoot up five or six inches high,
when they are removed singly and taken
to the fields which have been prepared
receive them. There the young sprouts
are planted anew, in rows, with a space
from four to six feet between each plant
For two years they need no more care,
an occasional plowing out of
weeds which spring up around them.
third year the plant is from three to
feet high, and commences to bear, produc
ing about a pound of coffee fruit. Each
year adds to the size and productiveness
of the tree, till it reaches about ten feet
height, after which it gives a product
from 20 to 30 pounds of green fruit.
The coffee fruit resembles in shape, size,
and color a plump cranberry, and grows
clinging closely to the small, lateral
branches ot the tree ; so that the band can
at once strip ofi the 60 or more berries a
branch may bear. On some plantations,
the trees are dwarfed, for the double -pur
pose ot increasing the fruitage and tacin
tating the picking.
The time of picking the crop varies, ac

the kernels are rapidly gathered under
hel er, as rain upon them while drying
would cause an irreparable Injury ; and,
on torse plantations, machines tor drying
by hot air have been introduced. After a
few days in the sun, the kernels become
dry and crispy : they are then thrown into
a circular trough, and large wooden rollers,
shod with Iron, crush the shell, and liberate
the two beans which each shell contains.
The bean has still another coating its skin
which is the hardest ot all to remove,
but, through long-continued attrition with
the iron-shod rollers, this, also, is mostly
removed, and then the tanning mill cleans
the bean by blowing away the loosened
skin and broken shells.
But the roost expensive part of the
process is now to come Before long ta-

work, and on these tables are poured the
beans as they come from the fanning-mill.
Each Indian holds a basket in bis or her
lap, and with both hands rapidly picks
out, separately, every perfect bean, till
there remains on the table nothing but
broken and imperfect coffee, of no value.

Evergreens should be much more ex

recommend them, they should be found in
every door yard, shrubbery or pleasure
ground. Belts of evergreens form an ex

homesteads ; but it is expecting top much
to suppose that a single row of pines or
spruce will form an effectual barrier
against the rushing winds oi a bleak prai

several rows ot trees so arranged as to

greens raised in nurseries are better suit

shipped In the sex. Can It be wondered at, then,
that so much of vomu'i time and attention
should be devoted to the means of developing
and preserving that beauty ? Women know, too,
that when men apeak of tke Intel'ect of women,
they speak critically, tamely, coolly ; bat when
they come to speak of the cbarms of a beautiful
woman, their language and their eyes kindle
with an enthusla-m which shows tbem to be pro
foundly, if not. Indeed, ridiculously in earnest
It Is part of the na'nral sagacity of women to
perc-lve all this, and therefore employ every al
lowable art. to become the uoddess of that adora
tion. Presch to the contrary, as we may. against
the arte employed by women for enhancing their
beauty, there still stands the eternal fact, that
the world does not prefer the society of an ugly
woman of genius to that of a beauty of less In
tellectual acquirements. The world bas yet al
lowed no higher mission to woman than to be
beautuui, ana it wonia seem mat tne laoies i me
present age are carrying this Idea of the world to
greater extremes than ever, for all women now to
whom nature bas denied the tallsmanlc power of
beauty, supply the deficiency by the use of a most
delightful toilet artie'e, known as the " Bloom of

this country by Gsobos w. Laird, a delicate

American trick of a Lady's toilet, female beauty
la deslined to play a larger part in the admiration
of men and the ambition of women than all the
arte employed since her creation Prof. C. F.
Chandler, Chemist to the Metropolitan Board of
Health, baa recently prepared a chemical analysis
of this dellghtral toilet preparation, and reported
that the " Bloom of Tooth" waa harmless, con

An Old Fallacy Exploded.
Thirty or forty years ago. It waa the fashion to
administer powerful purgatives as M spring medl
ctnee." Terrific doses of salts and senna, calomel
and Jalap, or giauber salts were given to all the
members of a family, whether sick or well, by way
of preparing them for the warm weather In pros
pect. This pernicious custom Is nearly obsolete,
but there are some old Bourbons of private life,
Incapable alike of forgetting anything or learning
anything, who obstinately cling to It still. Noth
ing could be more pernicious, more utterly nn
philosophlcal, than such an onslaught on the vigor
and elasticity of the system. In order to enable
the physical structures to resist the enervating
effects of spring damps and summer heats. It
should be toned and reinforced, not relaxed and
weakened. The best medicine agent for this pur
pose is noetetter's Stomach Bitters. Its effect la to
tone the stomach and liver, gently relieve the
bowels from obstructions, brace the nerves, im-
Srove the quality of the blood, stimulate the appe
te and cheer the spirits. In this Improved con
dition the organization is capable of resisting un

feeble sj stem. A vigorous digestion is absolutely
essential to health, and there Is no danger of the
stomach faltering or falling In Its important office
