Msssasq. Eurronis: Last wveek we had
very great pleasure in the presence, be
fore the Robeson County Agricultural
Society, of Dr. John F. rmpkins, the
Editor of the Farmers' Journal. -The
Doctor addressed the Society for
an hour or more, and was listened to
with very great interest and pleasure.
The result was an adldition of some
eighteen or twenty subscribers, aird
if perfect faiwr for scientific farming.
On~ yesterday we received the first three
numbers of the Journal (vol. 2,) and
whilst I was engaged in readiing some
of tihe choice articles to a most at
tentive squad of' our villagers, ifnd
among them "Cure for Cholice in IHor.
ses," in came the news that our WOV
thy old citizen, farmer Brown, had
just got to the village with a very
sick horse.--Off I started at once, and
the crowd with mec.
"Is it spasmodic or flatulent, Mr.
Brown?' says 1, with the numiber
opei at the page and my thumb upon
the article- -
'-T'an't neither," says he: "It's cholie."
."May be it's the tymnpanies she's
got," says 1.
"Well now it an't; it's bholic, I tell
you, and that awful bid."
"Well," says I, "here's the treat

bout a foot clear from the ground.
I looked round to Smith and Jones
and Barker, who are fellow-members
of the Societ-y with me, most inquiring.
ly. Smith looked at Joies, and said
that ho thojught the drought had
killed all on his t(riu. J.'ncs said that
lie knowed it very well when lie saw
it growing, and a capital remedy it
was, but lie had not seen any since
last Fall; and Barker said that he had
never heard of the thing before in
his life. Mr. Brown's maregot up; and
down she came, and this time bounced
about a foot and a half.
"Well let's leave that thing out,"
says Brown, "what's next? for you
must be in a hurry."
"Bleed her in the pro re nata," says
I, reading on.
"Wiere?" says Brown, most em
"Ii the pro rO nate," says I. And
I looked at Smith. and Smith at Jones,
and Jones at Barker, and Barker said
that lie did not think she ought to
be bled in the no pre orta as it
was dangerous. (Johnston who was
standing by and always trying to say
something smart, said he thought she
ought'er, but we were too seriously en.
gaged for any body to laugh ex.
"You're right there, Mr. Barker,"
said Beeve Stoddiford, "for I bled one
of my mules in the po ne korta, and
she had the trimbles for a month after
wards." (You could just hear John
stun, as if talking to himself, "I don't
.woidet.it hurt her.") ~ -.-~
And Mr. Biown's mare gotup and
stood for a inonibnt'.
"She lo, ks more oval than she did
before," says Mr. Brown, meekly.
(" And behind, too," says John
She staggered but a step or two
and down she came, and this time
showed too feet clear of daylight as

In .igke's absence the mare took sev

did not look so oval, but he thought she
began to get roundish. Beeve Stod
diford said that lie thought the pain was
drawing her in a straiglt line from
the head to the root of her tail, and if
Jake did not get back directly he
thought they would conie together.
"Spose they do?" sdid Bias Larnes,

and coughled, and struggled and sneez

their best to hold hei- down, but up
she rose, jumnped about a foot clear of
the ground, and came downi with a
rnin,- and she bounced clear over.
(It's all or'er with her now," says
"I'm afraid you can do nothing more
for her, says Mr. Brown, sorrowfully.
"Don't give up yet," says I. "Let's
try the whole prescrip~tion."
"Whait's to'be do~ne now?" says Mr.
Brown, almost inaudibly.
"Give her injection of dernier re
'4ort,". says I, "and two drachims of
suppositoay of tobacco."
"What's that?" says Mr. Brown.
And I looked at Smith, atid he at
Jones, and lie at Barker, iina 1ker
back again at. Smith and Jones.
"Don't you know the dern) r,.re
sort?" says Stoddiford-. lil b'e urned

"0, 1 ktio* - it like a 'book," says
Bias, "and I could gather seven bush

it is too far to go.lor It, and it don't

all the good of that comes out when
you bile it .with the burnier desort."
"Adzactly," says lieeve Stoddiford,
"I know it." .
More and more sorrowful grew the
countenance of poor Mr. Brown. as
lie saw his mare swelqiug peiceptibly,
and heard her awful groans. He
wrung his hands in desphir, and stood
half bent ovir her prostsIte form as if
"If we only had any ationale,"

"Wh-wh what youo.db with that

"Rub her down N ith it," says I.
("Better take a little yourself,'
says Johnston.) . .. II
"Make haste," says Stoddiford, "or
I'll be burned if she don't splode."
Again I looked at the page, and
read hurriedly, "if yon cat't get the

"Them's um," said'"Bias" Larnes.
"Yes, I never knew that to fail,"'says
And Mr. Brown's mare made one
roll, and her legs looked as if they had
been driven up to the knees.
"You inay haul her off, JAke?' says
Mr. Brown, sobbing.
"I could have curedher,",said , "if
she could have stood.- it :until I got
through with the prescription."
"I b'lieve you could,"'says old:Buggy.
"Mr. Brown," says Johnston, -I'm

Mr. Brown looked at him imploringly'
1hrough his tears,. with a hea too
full to speak. "If she had lived," con
tinued Johnston, "you would have'.to
bear the expense, but the ..prescription
ays 'the loss of one- animal will

"D-n the expense-the Lord for

since, in favor oftthe bill'for.the.con
struction. of a road from St. Louis to

find the same thought in Humboldt's
"Views of Nature:"
. "There is an idea become current of
late-a new.born idea-that none but
a man of science,. bred in 'a school,
can lay ofT a road. This is amistake.
There is a class, of ,topographical en
gineers older than the. scHools; and
more unerring than the Wnathematics.
They are - the wild animhals-buffalo,
elk, deer, antelope, bears-which tra
verse the forest, not by compass, but
by an' instinct which: leads. them
always the right way-to the lowest
:passes in the mountains, the shallow.
est fords in the rivers, the richest pas
tures in the forests, the best - salt
springs, and the shortest - practicable
.lines betwoen. remote points. -They
trayel thousands of miles, have their
annual migrations backwards and for
-wards and never miss the best -and
shortest route. These are the first en
gineers to lay out a road in a new coun
try; the Indians follow them, and
hence a buffalo road - becomes a
war path. The first white-hunters fol,
low the same trails in pursuing their
game, and after that the buflhlo road
become.the wagon road of the white
man, and finally the macadamized or
railroad of the scientific man . It. re
solves itself into the same thing-into
the.same buffalo road; and thence the
buffalo becomes the first and safest en
gineer. Thus it has.been here, in the
countries which we inhabit, and the
history of which is so familiar.. The
present national road from Cumber
