THE ILL I NO IS FREETRADER.
THE Ill'IH'.
Toll me, ye winged wind's
That round my pathway rour,
Do ye not know some spot
Where mortal wep no morel
Some lone mid pleasant dell,
Some valley in the west,
Where, free from toil and jut'in,
The weary soul may rest !
The loud wind dwindled to a whisper low,
And sighed for pity as it whispered "No!"
Tell me, thou mighty deep,
Whose billow round me- play,
Know'st thou some favored spot,
Some island far away,
Where weary man may find
The bliss for which he nigh,
Where sorrow never Iivc,
And friendship never dies!
The loud waves rolling in perpetual llow,
Slopped for awhile, and sighed, to answer " No
I"
And thou, serenest moon,
That with such holy lace,
Dost look upon the earth
Asleep in night's einhraec:
Tell me, in all thy round,
Hast thou not seen some spot
Where miserable man
Miht find a happier lot 1
Behind cloud the moon withdrew in wo,
And a voice sweet, but sad, responded " No !"
Tell me, my societ soul,
Oh ! tell nir, Hope and Faith,
' ' . Is there no resting place
From sorrow, sin and death :
Is there no happy spot
Where mortals may be blcss'd,
Where irrief may find a balm.
And weariness a rest?
Faith, Hope, and Iove, best boons to mortals given
Wav'd their bright wings, and whispcr'd '-Yes,
in Heaven."

Tiia air in the morning is more hracini
and bHlmy, than during any other part of
the day. Every boy or girl, who can be
spared from household affairs, should be
abroad with the lark and the robin, inha
ling it. What will your sons or daugh
ters be good for, if you allow them to bo
dozing and dreaming, and breathing car
bou in a close room, and dreading to gel
up, when they ought to bo out brushing
oif the dew drops from the flowers, and
listening to the nii'nstrelsv of the orchard
and grove, or with burning cheeks and
frost breath, dallying with the hoary locks
of winter. It is easier for a child to rise
at five o'clock than at seven.
.If you allow your children to become
sluggards when they are young, they will
probably carry the habit with them
through life, of .crying. "A little more
sleep, a little more slumber, a little more
folding of , the hands to sleep." Hcgin
early then to fix your hour, and adhere to
?k Let your child know that you are
fixed as the laws of the Modes and Per
sians, and lie will see that there is no use
in trying to plead off. In this way he
will become accustomed to early rising,
while he is 'yet a child. As the habit
gains strength, it will become more and
more pleasant to him. lie will be likely
t3 retain it when he is no longer under
your roof- He will live longer and be
more happy, and do more good, than if
he had been indulged when he thought it
a hardship to bo roused so early from his
slumbers. If your boy docs not get
sleep enough by the time yo-.i set for his
rising, send him to bad an hour earlier,
and ,the matter will soon be adjusted.

There is not a shrub, vine, plant, or
tree to be found in our fields and forests
that is not susceptible of a high degree of
improvement, if taken up late in fall or
early.' in the spring, properly trimmed,
and transplanted into good rich soil near
our dwellings. Their change for the
better soon becomes apparent, j Take,
for instance, young chestnut trees from
the mountain, top off as much of their
tops as you leave of their roots ; 6et them
out as you would your apple trees ; not
deeper in the soil than they have stood.
They then have a rapid growth, and if
well preserved, will spread and bear pro
lifically, producing a nut three times the
sue of those generally brought to market,
and pf better flavor. The hickory ' tree
will do the same.- . All will bear grafting
as well as the pear tree. . Experiments
in this line cost but little.

Vi htn' tlio celebrated Patrick I lenry
of Virginia,! was near the close of his life
and, in feeble. health, he laid his hand on

wh:a!wv'vvith Km, .Here is a book,"

primed ; yet it is my misfortune never to
have read it with proper attention and
feeling, till lately !" About the same
time, he wrote to his daughter "I heard
it said Deists have claimed me ! The
thought gave me more pain than the ap
pellation of Tory, for I consider religion
of infinitely higher importance than poli
tics ; and I find much cause to reproach
myself, that I have lived so long and giv

IVtrolruiti Oil Well.
About 10 years since, whilst boring for
salt water, near Uurksville, Ky., after
penetrating thro' solid rock upwards of
'ZOO feet, a fouutam of pure oil was struck
which was thrown up more than twelve
feet above the surface of the earth. Al
though in quantity somewhat abated after
the discharge of a few minutes, during
which it was supposed to discharge 75
gallons a minute, it still continued to How
for several days successively. The well
being on the margin and the mouth of a
small creek emptying into Cumberland
river, the oil soon found its way thither,
and for a long time covered its surface.
Some gentleman below applied a torch,
when the surface of the river blazed, and
the flames soon climbed the most elevated
clifl's, and scorched the summit of the
loftiest trees. It ignites freely, and pro
duces a flame as brilliant as gas. Its
qualities were then unknown ; but a
quantity was barreled, most of which
soon leaked out. It is so penetrating as
to be difficult to confine in a wooden ves
sel, and has so much gas as frequently to
burst bottles when filled and tightly cork
ed. Upon exposure to the iir it assumes
a greenish hue : It is extremely volatile ;
has a strong, pungent and indescribable
smell, and tastes much like the heart of
pitch pine.
For a short time after the discovery, a
small quantity of the oil would flow
whilst pumping the salt water, which led
to the impression that it could always be
drawn by pumping. Hut all subsequent
attempts to obtain it, except by a sponta
neous flow, have entirely failed. There
have been two such flows within the last
two years! The last commenced on the
1th of July last, and continued about six
weeks, during which time twenty barrels
of oil were obtained. The oil and salt
water with which it is invariably combin
ed during these flows, are forced up by
the gas above 200 feet into the pump,
and thence through the spout into a cov
ered trough, where the water soon be
comes disengaged and settles at the bot
tom, whilst the oil is readily skimmed
from the surface. A rumbling noise re
sembling distant thunder uniformly at
tends the flowing of the oil, whilst the
gas which is then visible every day at
the top of the pump, leads the passing
stranger to inquire whether the well is on
liie. cw Orleans Bulletin.
Plant Tree.
If you icanl to thrive, plant trees: tiny arc money
at compound interest, whkh iiicreanrx whit)
you sleep.
Iii the year 1758, ninciytwo fir trees
were planted upon a piece of poor ground,
about three quarters of an acre in extent.
The ground M as waste, and poor : no
extra expense was incurred, and no furth
er attention was paid to the young trees.
n 1813, they were cut down and sold
for three hundred and sixty pounds,
(about eighteen hundred dollars,) which
was equal to an annual rent of thirtytwn
dollars, during the intervening fifty-five
years, or upwards of forty dollars per
icre.
A gentleman in England, whose lands
were more extensive than fertile, planted
fifteen hundred trees, on the birth of eve
ry daughter, upon his waste grounds
which were on an average worth one
pound sterling, on her coming of age :
thus enabling him to true a handsome
fortune to each of them on arriving at the
age of twenty-one, without any extraor
dinary economy on his part ; the regular
thinning of the trees, at proper seasons,
with barking, &c.,-paying off nil the
current expenses, besides yielding him a
small rent for the land.
In Scotland, a piece of waste land was
planted with sycamores and at the end
of sixty years, sold for a sum which paid
fourteen pounds sterling (nearly seventy
dollars) the acre, per annum, during that
long period.
The planting of the banket willow tree,
in wet, waste places, or along the margin
of streams, yields more profit, proportion
ed to the outlay, than raising of wheat, or
making of butter ; and when onco started,
requires no further trouble than annually
to cut the twigs. in a shame to put
it in print, and yet it is true, that annual
ly there a.c large quantities of willows for
baskets, imported into this country, from
Holland. . We also import annually,
thousands of dollars' worth of baskets,
ready made to our hands, from France
and other countries '.! Truly ours must
be a rich country indeed, to enable us to
perpetrate such an amount of folly every
year. Farmers' Cabinet.
An elderly maiden, meeting a newly
married man, who had onco been her ser
vant, carrying homo a cradle, exclaimed,
"Alu John,' these arc the fruits of maw
age." ' "No, madam," replied John,
"this be only therrn basket."

Messrs. Wiitek tc Hise

The above account will assure you of the per
fect harmony and unanimity that exists among
the Democratic members of the Legislature, and
is a sure presage of the future. The mu.it cupullt
men have been selected and named by their friends,
and from them the above list lias been elected,
without n murmur that I have heard from those
who were not so fortunate as to obtain a nomina
tion from the Democracy.
There i an evident desire on tho part of both
parties, to make the session a useful one; and I
will endeavor from time to time to inform you of
passing events, which must possess more than or
dinary interest this winter, from the, important na
ture of the public business.
The Senate notified the House this morning
that it was organized and ready to proceed to bu
