Ma j. N. M. Tasxor. Piesidert Gnanahani Guano Company. Petersburg, Va.:
Dear Sir : I have drawn sarrmles of the Guano, as it has arrived in cargo lota, and find
it rxreedinu'v uniform in the amount of Phosphoric Acid it. contains, namely, from 15 to
19 pe' cent. This is combined wit!i Lim-, and is ot animal orijin, and readily assimilable
by p'aiiln. Il contains potential ammonia and niinc acid havins; a combined Niirogen
value equal i from 2 to 3 per cent, of aitiuniiia, with me alkalies Potash and Soda, and
valuable proportions o" Si.lj.hate of Lime. The who forming a very desireable combina
tion for all crops, and w ben apt lied to land, the crop receiving proper tillage, must in my
opinion, give as good results as any guano uered to the farmer.
Being ol animal oriain. the oiaantic matter has uudergne partial decomposition, and it
necessarily contains a valuable amount of Humus, which makes its fertilizing power much
srre;tter than fertilizers which are compounded largely of Peruvian Guano, which, beyond
iis ammonia and small uhosuhatic value, has

Ma) N M. Tanner, Petersburg, a.,
OearSir: In compliance with your request, I have analyzed sample of " Guanahani
Giiam," and have made additional examination of an average aample from a lot of 800
tons the result of which, I be to embrace in the following. The Gnano is a brownish
powder, with lumps of combinations of lime wiih Carbonic Phosphoric and Nitric acids.
It contains a :-:n-ide-abie quantity uf water (about 20 per cent ), and when dried is a paler
brown powder. Tne Gu mo is evidently of animal oriuin, and the minute bones, which
were ili.-CMvered iu the same, indicate that it is the result of the decay of batu, mice, &c
Tlie q iantity of organic matter, which is still present, is about 12 per cent., and 'this yields
about lil per cpi.t. of nuimouia. A poition of the nitrogen is present, as nitric acid, of
winch about 3 per cent, was found. All the nitrogen present would lie equivalent to about
5i per cent, of ammonia. The phosphoric acid in th.uano, about 124 percent., equal to
27 3 per cut of bone phosphate. A considerable qun-'ity of the phosphoric acid how
ever, is pre-ent. as so called neutual phosphate of lime, which, being slightly soluble iu
water, renders the Guano as quick in its action as a corresponding quantity of super
phosphate would do. The small per centage of potash, which was fouud in the analys s
ad. Is to its value. ' '
From al! the experiments which I have made of the Guanahani Guano, no doubt can
exist that it is a valuable maimure.

Through a window, old and broken,
Came the moonlight like a token,
Like a token pure and holy,
From the happy world above,
Just wiilnn the shadow lying,
There a little child lay dying,
All alone lay moaning, crying,
With no one i.o help or love.
True, the rtreets were full of people,
And the shadow of a steeple,
Of a steeple, grand, and stately
Almost fed upon the floor.
Yet ithin as want and sorrow,
N" I i1 thoughts for Hopes to-morrow,
Oolv framing lest a footfall
Shoul.1 come through the open door.
Lest a footstep, diunken, reeling.
Should come through the darkness stealing,
And with bnuai hand uplifted,
Drive her out into the town,
Where all day, with voice that trembled.
She had stinr, where crowds assembled,
Asking only for a penny.
As she wandered up and d,owu.
But when ilie nlhl came weak and weary,
To the attic, dark and drearv.
To a cruel master's chiding.
Came the little faltering feet,
And the tired child lay sobbing,
Mingled with her heart's wild throbbing.
As she listened lo the coming,
For his comi, g from tl:u street.
Till the moonlight, growing blighter.
Made the dark room, clearer, lighter.
And a gentle voice seemed calling,
Till she followed where it led.
Through the window, old and broken,
Came the moonlight like a token,
Like a peaceful benediction,
On the pale fice of the dead.

The Deadly Evils of Gossip.
I have known a country society
which withered away all to nothing
under the dry rot of gossip only.
Friendships once ss firm as granite
dissolved to jelly, and then away
to water, only because of this ; love
that promised a future as enduring
as heaven, and as stable as truth,
evaporated into a morning mist that
turned to a day's long tears, only
because of this, j
A father and a son were set foot I
to foot with the fiery breath of
anger that would never cool again
between them, only because of this;
and a husband and his young wife,
each straining at the heated leash,
which in the beginning had been
the golden bondage of a Godbless
ed love, sat mournfully by the side
of the grave where all their love
and joy lay buried, and only be
cause of this,
J have seen faith transformed to
mean doubt, hope give place to
grim despair, and charity tako on
itself the features of black malevo
lence, all because of the fell words
of scandal, and the magic mutter
ings of gossip.
Great crimes work great wrongs,
and the deeper tragedies of iife
spring from its larger passions ; but
woeful and most melancholy are
the uncatalogued tragedies that
issue from gossip and detraction ;
most mournful the ship wreck often
made of noble natures and lovely
lives by the bitter winds and dead
salt waters of slander. So easy to
say, yet so hard to refute throw"
ing blame on the innocent, and
punishing them as guilty, if unable
to pluck cut the stings they never
see, and to silence words they nev
er hear. Gossip and slander are
the deadliest and crudest weapons
man has for his brother's hurt.
The Shad and Herring Fisheries.
The season for the prosecution of
shad and herring fishing in North
Carolina waters has already com
menced, the receipts of shad by the
Norfolk boat yesterday being 10
barrels, which is now the daily av
erage. The supply will gradually
incieaso until it reaches 50 and
then 100 barrels per day. The
first North Carolina shad are ( aught
in the Alberraarle and Pamlico
Sounds, in scake nets, each 86 feet
long. About 15,000 or 20,000 of
these nets are set and fished by men
in small boats, 200 nets being
managed by one boat. Erom 500,
000 to 1,000,000 shad are caught
in thig way every season. These
fish are at once packed in ice, and
in a few hours are in Norfolk, and
in 24 hours after being caught are
landed in this city. From here
many are shipped to points in the
WTe8t. in March the North Car
olina fisheries about Edenton are in
full blast, the enormous hauls of
shad and herring being landed by
means of seines. At least one
million shad and many more herring
are here caught, the shipments
reaching from 100 to 500 large
boxes ach day. The North Caro
lina fieh are considered buperior,
because they are caught as they
leayj the sea, and are always ft
and in excellent condition. The
first shad that reached here this
season were caught in the St. John's
river, Florida, and brought here by
the Savanah steamers early in Jan
uary. These fish are generally
poor, and commands but $30 per
hundred, while North 6had com
mands 35. The Potomac and
Maryland fishermen commence op
perutions about the first of April.
6 had are not caught in the waters
north of here until as late as May
and June. Baltimore American.

results more frequently exceed than fall short of the above increase.
