SINGULAR Gnoi.ocCAL FACT.-At
Modena, in Italy, within a circle oft
four miles around the city, whenever
the earth is dug and the workmen ar
rive at the distance of sixty-three fleat,
they come to a bed of ebalk, wlich
they bore with an auger. five feet deep.
They then withdraw from the pit be- -
fore the auger is removed, and upon
its refraction the water bursts up with I
great violence, and quickly fills the I
well thus made, the supply of water
bigie cc rains or
droughts . At the depth of ourteen
feet are found the ruins of an ancient
city,-hiouses, paved streets, and Ma
sonic work. Below this again is a
layer of earth, and at twenty-six feet,(
walnut trees are fbunid entire, with -
leaves and walnuts upon them. At
twenty-eight feet soft chalk is fo'ud,
and below this vegetables and trees.
CA1.lFOaNA.-We see it stated that
the division of Californiia into three
seperate States is now contemplated
and pressed there. A majority of the
Legislature, it is said, will order a
State Con venition, ad upon that C~on
ventioni will dependl the mode(1, manner.
and bound uries of di visioni.
The three States are to be named
"Sierra,"' thle mnoun tain divi tion, which
has about 2:3,000 iiihnbitants by thle
last census; "Californiia," w hich has
207,388, and "Tulare, thJothr
8tate, inclu~inmg Los Angelos and San
Diego, which has 34,150 in habitants,
and abo'ut seven and a 'mnlf il ilions oif
taxable property. This Southern
State of' Tulamre, in the division, it is
co ntemplated by miany of'thme occupantsI
to mnake. a slave Stat e of, and one of
the objcets of pressing the division isr
to establish slavery there.

The Mirror replies as oillows:
As the above communication is ad
Iressed 'to the editor of the Mirror,'
md not marked private, we take it for
rranted that the writer desires the full
enefit of a public avowial or himeilf
is an 'Abolitionist.' Instead of' re
racing tile expression quoted from
he Mirror, we unhesitatinulv re-as
ert the fact that 'we have yet to learn
hat an Abolitionist can be a gentle
nan.' We will confess, however, that
>ur personal acquaintance with men
>f that description is very limited, and
nay have been unfortunate. We have
lot the honor ot knowing Mr. Berry;
ut on inquiry at the publication office
>f the Mirror, learn that lie is an agent
or the sale of' Pianofbrtes manuifietur
d in Boston by Alessrs. Hallet, Dia
,is & Co.
In order to draw sharply the line of
listinction indicated by the renaik at
vhich Mr. Berry feels his 'self'respect'
rritated, it is necessary to define the
neaning of the term 'AbolitioisW
term, in our understanding of the
vord, of blackest reproach.
What, then, is it to be an 'Aboli
ionistI' It is, in the first place, to be
traitor to the Constitution, which re
-ognises slavery. It is to be a viola
or of the law enacted for the reclaia
ion of fugitives from service. It is
1) be a violator of the law~ enaeted for
he reclamation of .fugitives froma ser
'ice. It is to be an instigator to ser
'ile rebellion-a stealer( of negroes
disturber of the peace-a promoter
>f bloodshed-a destrover of the Un
on of the States. Abolitionism leads
lirectly to all these calanmities; and
here is no escape from the issue.
au the advocate of Such a cause be a
;entleman. We think not. Still less
an he be a Christian.
And what are the habits and man.
er of the Abolitionists'? Read their
Luurnals; listen to their speeches; look
t their speckled conclaves, where

perior y ield to the acre, of five times as
much as the Kentucky hemp: the mo.
ney saved in its being tMade near at
home and not broughtifroe a distance;
its more durable, qualities in water or
damp than any other hemp; and its very
easy manfacture into bagging. This last
article is mpdesand needed in such quan
tiues, that any substance that will sup
ply it, of equally good quality- and at
cheaper rates than can be afforded by
the present basis of manufacture, must
become a staple in this market, and
one of profitable pursuit.
We append the documents relating
to this discovery, which we find in the
report of the U. S. Patent Office:
PAIHsu OF PLAQUEMINES, Jan. 24,
1831.-John Blanc, the bearer here
of, raised on my plantation, at Deer
Range, some beautiful specimens of
hemp from the okra plant, and raised
seed enough to plant forty or filly acres
I consider it as valuable as any other
staple raised in this State, and should
have continued the culture were it not
that it interfered with the works I was
compelled to pursue in the manage
ment of my cane crop.
I am not able to say how much it
would produce to the acre; but, from
what I saw, I think it would yield
from thirty-five hundred to live thou
sand pounds clean hemp per acre, and
require less work than any other
crop until the gathering commences,
when, with proper apparatus, the la
bor would be less than with either coL
ton or sugar.
Mr. Blanc himself is an honest and
industrious manl, worthy of all praise,
and I give' hii this testimony with

ty- four hundred and fourteen pounds of
hemp from the okra plant, raised in
six acres ot land, planted on the 5th of

P. HI. MILLER.
Mr. H. Penoyer, of Union county,
Illinois, publishes in the St. Louis Re
publican his experience and success in
preventing the potato rot. He has tes
ted his prevenxtive fo~r four years, with
perfect success, wvhile others in the
samne field who neglected it lost their
cnt ire crop. It is asserted, also that the
root is nearly double the size. The
remedy is as follows:
"Take one peek of fine sault and
mix it thouroughly with halfa bushel of
Nova Scotia plaster or gypsum, (the
plaster is tha best,)an d immediately
after hoeing the potatoes the second
time, or just as the young potato be
gins to set, sprinkle on the main vines,
next to the ground, a tab~le spoonful of
the above mixtnre to each hill and be
sure to get it on the main vines, as
it is found that the root proceeds from
the string of anl insect in the vine, and
the. mixtnre, coming in contact with the
vine, kills the effect of it before it reach
es the potato."
Mr. Penoyer asks no hing for his
d:scovery beyond what those whoe are
benefited are willing to give, and he
desires a test to be made before an
opinion is formed. This is reasonable,
and~ the experiment cost so little that it
is worth testing.
