" Senator Douglas baa unquestionably
played a manly part in the National Coun

or appreciate the feelings and objects: of

,, The several black frosts which so effeo-
tually blasted all our prospects 4 for fruit
around Columbus, on the morning of the
2d inst., seems- to hav exiended. jhrough
the entire south hair of ihi State, and sev
eral Slates south and west of us. ThoCln
cinnaii and Louisville papers contain; sad
accounts of . iu devastation in the orchards,
gardens, and vineyards of those regions.
It will be interesting to the readers of the
uultivator to learn what districts and local!
ties have escaped this calamity. In our
- lrjp j0 Cleveland bv railroad, we had ud op
portuniiy to examine (run buds until we
reached about . thirty miles aouth of the
Lake shore; here we found peaches but little
injured, i nd apples none at all. , The same
is true at Cherlin, and we presume thorough'
J out Lorain county. . j
About Cleveland we made exiensive ex
amiuntioiis of fruit. The blossoms are some
two weeks later than at Columbus, and ow-
ins to the influences of the Jake,; and
more cloudy state of the atmosphere, the
Irosts have been but slight. ,lhere is rea
son, therefore, to hope that the fruit crop in
of this portion of the State will be sufficient to
to furnish a supply to the destitno regions,, If
so, i wi!i prove a welcome harvest to tho
fruit growers of the lake shore. , v
