Mr. Editor J In your last No. I observe
a notice of a Reaping Machine sent by Mr.
Hussey to my caie for trial, in which you
sav that "the conclusion arrived at, taking
all things into consideration, was that it
was no improvement on the old method.' '
Nowm order that the farming community
- r . r I 1 - . . I !
may rot lorman opinion uniavorauietome
rperation of the machine without just cause,
I wish to state that I do not think it had a
'fair trial," as we all were unacquainted
with the Machine, and the best mode of
working it. It cut the grain clean, excep
ting when moving in the direction in which
the wheat leaned; and to make the sheaves
straight and eveuly, would require more
than one hours experience, which was
about the time it was in operation. With
respect to its economy, when compared
with cradling, we had not sufficient expe
rience to form any correct opinion. We
had intended lo give it another trial on the
next day, but the occurrence of the storm
which so widely extended over our coun
try, so completely saturated the ground
and pos'rated the grain as to preclude the
rcssibilitv of triP2 it stain this season. Il
Mr. Ilussey thinks proper to let i! remain
here till next harvest, it shall have a "fair

Sowing Wheat in July.
All crops of winter wheat that we have
seen among us, this spring, and thus far
in the summer, look extremely well; and
all that we have heard from are very
promising. This is good encouragement. We be
lieve that the culture of this variety ol
wheat will succeed well with all the Maine
farmers who know how to do it, and the
knowing how, is very easily obtained.
, The experience ol our larmers directs that
the soil should be in good heart sow ear
ly sow upon the furrow, and cultivate it
in, or harrow it deep. Some cross plough
h in with light ploughs make ditches to
lead off any water that would stand upon
il, and if it forms joints before fall, feed it
cfT wi:l sheep or light cattle. By pursu
ing this course, we verily believe that win
er wheat will not fail, by being winter
killed, any oftener than winter rye or than
our grass crop does. Some have suggest
ed the utility of sow ing ii; July,
v Two rears ago, Mr. J. Jones published
a commumcatton m me America., r.
on the subject. He mere d Ut Mr
Hossencer of Newark, in Delaware, had
" ' o ' , ,
practised, lor nve or tix jcors, me i..m v. j
sowing his wheat in July. He sowed!
among his corn, and cultivated it in, and
ly this practice frequently obtained as j
much as twenty-five bushels to the single j
acre. During the six years, he did not j
fail to make a good crop but once.
lie was not in the habit of pasturing his
with sheep in the fall. Probably there
was two reasons why this was not required
rn this case, viz : By his sow ing in com
it did not come forward so fast as il alone,
and the winters in Delaware not being so
severe s with us in Maine, it did not be
come necessary to crop it off if too far
Krow n before winter. He mentions that a
Mr. Bowman was in the habit of pasturing
hi July-sown wheat with sheep, and that
by il he avoided the Hessian fly, which,
in that region was thought to deposit its
eggs in the joints during the fall.
We hope the Farmers of Maine will ex
tend the culture of winter wheat this year.
The success that has thus far crowned the j
experiments of those w ho have ventured ;
to try them, ia this branch of forming. is j
highly encouraging- Fu'uh aud good works, j

LEWISBURG CHRONICLE AND WEST BRANCH FARMER
Reading Out of the Party.
This amusement (for wc regard the prac
tice in no higher light) has become unusal
ly prevalent with various branches and in
dividuals of the Democratic party. Col.
Page reads out'' all, who can not quad
rate their views ou the slavery question
with his own. A number of papers read
out Wilmot the Keystone insists that Cam
eron should be forever attained another
journal contends, that all the members of
the last Legislature, that voted lor the ap
parlionment bill, have lost caste beyond re-
while a few chivalrous individuals
renounce all but themselves, and stand
belore the world an unexceptionable and in
divisible Democracy. At the present time,
there is scarcely a member of the party,
w ho is not "read out" by somebody, often,
too, without being conscious of the fact.
Wc know there is no small degree of
satisfaction attending all these movements.
There is an agreeable feeling of political
superiority and honesty, accompanying the
act of expulsion, which is always undis
guised in the subsequent action of the
self-constituted dictators. There is not
often a corresponding ratio of depression
in the victims all they have to do is to
turn about, and visit their tormentors with
the same infliction. And this is precisely
the progress of the game. After political
conscience has been satisfied, we generally
find all the parlies acting in practical con
cert, and the machinery of the party moves
on ri the beaten trarch. We have occa
sional interruptions, and renewed violence
of denunciation, sometimes endangering
the success of the party, but often without
any effect upon his relations to the common
enemy- The Democracy of Dauphin
support Mr. Cameron, notwithstanding his
faithlessness and the Democracy of the
Bradford district return Mr. Vl'iliuot, des
pite his treason and contumancy.

Such proceedings were never more im
politic and hazardous, than at this time.
We have, at best, but a small majority in
Pennsylvania, which might be entirely
destroyed by an active opposition of any
of the paries alluded to. At any lime,
soothing appliances are better than violence,
and we must never forget, that, whatever
may be the guilt of the principals, many
of iheir followers are among ihe most ar

yond the limits of human patience and en
durance. The greatest caution must now
be exercised. We need the cheerful co
operation of all branches and wings of the
party, and our efforts should be directed to
closing, and not widening existing breach

compatible with the duty of counteracting
the schemes of wily and ambitious parti
sans. We have a ticket in the field, and
it will require-our whole strength to elect it.
Such was fhe policy of Jackson, and such

What a relief it is to escape, for even a
single hour, from the terrible heat of the
season, to the cool shelter of the river
groves, where the rippling waters dance
onward with subdued gladness to the sea,
and the refreshing breeze comes as grateful
to the uncovered brow as the spirit's bles
sing winged by angel hands.
Nature's many voices, when suffered
to be beard m ber own quiet retreats, Vavc
ever a spirit tone, aud when we can tear
ourselves away from the busy world, and
forget for the time the wearying cares and
sordid chains that so fret the soul, how
instinctively the heart responds to the
mysterious monitor, and Low old emotions
and fond memories come welling up from
its deep fountains ! What hoarded wealth
of joyful recollections and cherished griefs
is suddenly developed ! How the ethereal
influences around us are challenged for
tidings of loved ones who have faded from
our sight, and passed before us into the
spirit-laud, aud with what longings do we
gaze into the blue depths above iu search
of the 'far-off pavilions of eternity !' Is he
there the venerated sire, whose head was
frosted, and the thread of his existence
suddenly severed in the very meridian of
life ? And dte, too our first-born, the
little cherub whose presence gladdened our
hearts for a little time, and then, just as
she could begin to shape the souuds of her
bird-like voice, meekly folded her pinions
and left us .Wd?- ? Can it be only fancy,
that her miniature fingers are still toying
with our locks in infantile glee ; or that
she is clinging fondly an mud our neck ;
or gazing thoughtfully upon us, as was her
wont, with those mild, blue, spiritual eyes
of deep intelligence ? Alas, it is but
fancy's dream ; memory alone retains an
image of the original; her blue eyes holy
light, and the glad music of her voice,
have perished, aud the heart's deep yearn
ings are met by unauswering silence. Aud
yet it seems to us that even now we hear
her whispering from the empyrean in angel
accents, ''Come away come li"ne!"
'Away' from the turmoils and sorrows of
earth 'home' to the upper sanctuary,
where wearied ones may rest,
The moaning uf the sea."
It is not given us, and perhaps wisely,
to know uhtrr in the illimitable universe
are fixed the habitations of the loved and
lost. But, through the power of faith, we
can know that they are happy, nnd that
their happiness is not the mere 'frost work
of bliss,' but floweth like a river deep,
blissful and eternal.
The Storm of the 10th inst. was very
destructive to crops on the North Branch.
Some of the papers in that region speak of

away much property, and destroying many-

SayThe following paragraph from the
Xational Era, expresses our sentiments
exactly. "Justice to political opponents,
is as sacred an article in our creed, as ser
vice to political friends. It costs us no
more effort to award due praise to those
who differ from us, than to those with
whom we agree. Truth is the exclusive
heritage of no organization. Good and
evil are mingled in all parties."

There can be no doubt, Mr. Editor, but
the extensive use of Lime (with other pre
cautions) was last year very effectual in
guarding off the Cholera, and promoting
the health generally, of those towns which
practiced it. 3Iay it not be well to raise
the alarm again, to induce those of our
citizens who have not limed this year, at
once to scatter it in their cellars, on all
wet grounds, on manure-heaps, in pig-pens,
privies, and wherever any stench (which is
generally a poisonous emission, containing
the seeds of disease) is found. Heads of
families, and particularly females, should
see carefully and strictly to it that their
houses and tenements are well limed and
ventilated. Merchants and mechanics,
see that your premises are kept clean and
sweet. Besides beinir healthr. limine is
