NRw rona's IMPORTANCE.
Tho importance of tho Km pi rc Mate
in tho political balance is admitted all
around. With its electoral vol Iii* Ro

computing the chances of parties show
that of tho 202 electoral votes 11 ce iary

States with 158 certain electora] votes.''
They porccivo that thc Republicans can
oaf ry tho next Presidency without New
York, but success there is indispensable
to the Douioeracy. Carrying all tho
doubtful Sta e.s 1,aliud without New

Washington, \iinnix mel ilel?cruou.
(Otek in Gloolnnit' Kcqulror.)
Even our I'residents have poor luck
with their marriages. Washington mar
ried ins adopted daughter, who was
his wife's grandchild to Jus own nephew,
and the last I heard ol' them was the sale
to the government of some of Washing
ton \s old furniture hy the posterity.
John Adams had a daughter named
Abigail, who married a .young r?volu*
tionnry officer named Smith. Intaking
care of Smith, who was but mediocre,
Adams incurred ?nany enmities.
The ladies may he further interested
in the subject of the marriages of im
portant peoplo. JUr. .Jefferson had very
interesting daughters, and they married
Virginia politicians around him, to very
little satisfaction in at least one case.
Maria, the best looking of these gi.ils,
died in 1804. Uer husband had bee:: a
sporting man and horseman, and it ap
pears that both the sons-in-law of Jeflor
Bon required endorsements, cte., which
brought the old man's gray hairs down
to mendicancy, in addition to his own
Aaron Burr, on tho other hand, had
ono dnught< r, and she made n brilliant
marris go, but it was her father who in
volved nor and her husband in his un
scrupulous financial and political tricks,
ruined her husband, and when she em
barked from South Carolina with her
child to seek her father,^ she met some
where in this world an agonizing death,
lt is a legend that pirates took the vessel
and made this brilliant young woman
and her child walk the plank. No evi
dence, however, exists on tho subject,
except hearsay ; at that tinto there were
privateers and pirates.
The most brilliant marriage ever madl
in the political circles of the country in
thc tina's of .Washington was that ot' Ann
Willing to William Bingham. They
married carly in those, days, especially
where there was money, and Ann Will
ing married at sixteen. Her husband
was descended from a (Quaker black
smith, hut his family hod for four gen
elations made prosperous marriages, and
during our revolutionary war the hus
band got out of tho country and held a
position of hall British, half American
consul in ono of the West India islands
to which privateers resorted. He came
home very neb, and received as well tho
Bingham moneys, and he choose the >
daughter of Willing, who was president
of tlie United States Bank, and business
partner of Uobort Morris. Tho Willings
wore tho finest people in Philadelphia.
Secretary Bayard is desconded from ono
of them. Freshly married in her bloom,
tho bride and husband went to Europe
and remained away live years. They
were introduced at thc coin!, of thc
French king by Minister Adams, and j
thc young tuan w?is greatly admired us ?
tho first American ever seen abroad.
When he returned, at tho commence
ment of Washington's administration,
they built tho finest house ever seen in |
Philadelphia up to that timo, and not
excelled perhaps in the present day. It
was Illicit with tho best furniture to be
bought in France and tho best pictures
from Italy. Along caine young Baring,
tho English banker, and saw the daugh
ter of this pair so superbly brought up,
with a town house and country house,
and ho married her; and tho larger por
tion of tho Bingham proporty, which
amounted to $1,200,000 in money, w ent j
to swell tho capital of tho Barings. The
young mother, however, having lost
herself in fociety, caught cold in an im
perfect dress one night, and was seized
with consumption, and she died in the
West Indies at an early agc She ha a
sister of whom great things was expect
ed, but along came a dissolute French
nobleman, without any standing or pro
priety, and ho tempted this girl to go
out with him one night, and ho kent her
out all Light, to the horror and wonder
of the town, and then made a compro-j
mise with her parents whereby they yave
him money to send her home; she was
divorced by the Legislature, her father
having become United States Senator,
and so little was m ado ot' tho matter by
the Baring family that she was solicited
in marr' jo by her brother-in-law Bar
ing, and tftor living w ith him until his
decease she married another French
nobleman and passed out of notice.
President Taylor's daughter run away
with Jefferson Davis. President Mon
roe's daughter married lier cousin, and
they have left some descendants at
Washington and some in tho State of i
Maryland. Nellie (Inuit is tho last
President's daughter to draw attention.
She saw a young, bright faced English
man on a steamship and fell in love with
him without much reason or inquest,
and ho turned ont to bo apparently a
sort of boys' Oom pan ion, hardly ever
looking up to tho dignity of acquaint
ance with grown men. Ho therefore
seeks his pleasure up in Loudon, when
ho has any money to Spend, and she
stays at homo with her baby.
Tho marriage of Blaine's son is il tea
tiraony to tho beauty, modesty and
sweotuosa of Mrs. Nevins, tho mother of
tho bride, who has been too much es
teemed on all these points for her (^nigh
ter to puss into nothingness. In this
case we know what tho poet means when
A thing of beauty isa joy forever;
Its loveliness increases; it will never
Poss into nothingness, but still will keep.

Thc hardier email grains, srach as rye
and barley, may bo sown during this and
tin; next month. They aro valuable tu
soding crops iu early spring; barlej
richer ami more rolishcd oy stock, rye
hardier and bettor adapted to poor html.
Whoro there is moro rye than eau be fed
in its green state, it i.s'cut ami cured us
hay, provided tt is cul before tho head?
aro out. Jt becomes woody and hard
SOOQ after the heads form, and is thou of
little value. Harley may be allowed to
ripon, and bo harvested and fed Uko
oats. There is a general impression that
the beard is in the way of doing this,
but a gentleman recently informed us
that ho has fed barley in the sheaf to his
horses for twenty years without injury;
that sometimes the beards collect be
tween t ho lips and jaws, but are easily
removed l>y tho finger, and tho animal
suffers no special inconvenience. We
aro also reliably informed that unthrosL
ed barley is quito commonly fed to
horses in California. Whore one lias
pretty good land, therefore, barley might
be sown as a substituto for fall oats, in
localities where the latter is very liable
to bo winter killed.
But our special object in calling atten
tion to these crops is to present their
claims OS means for preserving tho fer
tility of soils. In the first place, a very
largo portion of our lands aro Iv if baro
through the winter, with nothing lu pro
tect thom from being washed away by
tho heavy rains td* that season. A grow
ing crop, especially otic with numerous
roots, tonds to hold the soil firmly. For
this reason alone, woro there no other, it
would pay a farmer to sow from a half
bushel to three pecks of rye per aero in
his cotton fields at the last ploughing ol'
the crop. Tho rye, after having done
its work of holding tho soil, might be
grazed, or cut in the sining for soiling
purposes, or might bc plowed under to
enrich the soil.
But there is another very important
work which a green, growing crop has to
perform, which is not generally or fully
appreciated, lt is a great anli-leacher;
it prevents tho washing out of tho avail
able nitrogeu in tho soil by rain water.
The ultimate form which nitrogen as
sumes in the soil is nitric acid (aqua
fortis) and is found in combination with
potash, soda, lime, etc., forming salts
known as nitrates. Now all nitrates are
soluble in water, and besides aro not held
by rocks as phosphoric acid and potash
are. Tho nitrates arc very easily washed
or leached out. This is not only capable
of demonstration in a laboratory, but
has been abundantly shown by collecting
tho water from uuderdrains (tiles) anti
analyzing them. It has been found that
where the water ?.Mine from tiles undera
bare, naked piece ol' land, the nitrates in
it exceeded by a considerable quantity
that from tiles overlaid by a greet:, grow- |
ing crop. Thc grow ing crop appropri
ated and held thc nitrates-thc bare, soil
let it go.
Hut this is not all. Thc frequent
plowing and .stirring of the soil encour
ages tho formation ?d' nitrates-the in
soluble, inert forms of nitrogen in the
soil, aro thereby changed into soluble
nitrates. J lenee in autumn the soils of
our cotton fields aro comparatively rich
in nitrate i, and continue so until the
winter rain leaches thom out. A cotton
Hold is not utily, therefore, most liable
to washing, but most exposed also to
greatest leaching. Above other fields
it needs: tho protection of a grow ing crop
through tho winter and early spring, lt
is not too late yet to give it this protec
tion. Sow rye now, and continuo to
sow, if needs be, till the first ol' fc)CC0m
bor. Sow southern raised or home
seed-that from tho northwest will not
give satisfactory results. Evon if a field
IS intended for corn thc next year, sow
it in rye now and turn it under next
spring. Farmers think it right to sow
and plow in peas for enriching land in
summer j let thom try tho same thing
with rye in winter, lt will cost no more,
and probably do more good. Peas in- I
crease thc supply of available nitrogen
in tho soil; rye will hold that already
present and prevent it? loss. Fields cov
ered with winter grasses arc neither
washed nor leached they increase in
fertility. Lot us bring our summer cul
tivated lands as nearly as possible into
tho same condition by clothing them in
winter with a carpet of green, w. :., j.

has lost much ol' his priestly appearance.

I was a priest called on her often in a

thought I could do better there. We rc

asked nu? if J wouldn't like to join the
Baptist Church. I did not answer this
question for some time, until, in fact, 1
thought it over thoroughly. In tho I

HOM ? Train Traveled I'lirce Hundred tillea an
Fruin the San I'KIOOUCO Chronicle.)
When OcorgO Stevenson asserted his
ability to run passenger coaches at lt
speed of twelve to fifteen miles an ho,ii,
scientific and practical nu n deemed him !
lit for a lunatic asylum, but time has
shown that trains may bo run at a much
greater velocity without materially add- ;
mg to tho dangers of railway travel. Thc
Hight of tht; inst express on the Penn
sylvania railway is a marked example of
thc possibilities in tho way of sustaining .
high rates of speed. This mad now runs
the fastest train in America. Nine hun
dred and twelve miles, including sovou
stops, are accomplished in 25J hours,
and tho average time is 36.30 miles an
hour. A portion of tho distance is run
at the rat? <d 7,"> miles an hour. At a
speed of 60 miles an hour tho driving
wheels of the locomotivo on this train
make 2,">H} revolutions a minute. Wm.
Vanderbilt's spurt of 81 miles in GI min- ?
utes on tho New York Central ts declared
to be the bighost rale of speed ever at- '
tained in this country, but this speed
was not a surphso to good engineers,
many v.i w hom aro firm in Un; belief that
100 miles an hour will yet bo accom- 1
plished on American roads.
Thirty-one years ago Colonel MeiggS
read a paper bef?t e (JIO. New York Farm
ers' Club on "Futuro Traveling," in
which ho expressed the belief thal rail
road cars oould be safely propelled Ly
steam at the rate ol'dot) miles an hour.
Ho stud: "Thc Emperor of Russia has
taken the first great .deo toward what 1
deem tho ultimatum of railroad travo'.,
Instcad of cutting what I call n mere
drill through tho country and going
around everything in tho way for a
straight line, ho has eut, a broad way for
000 miles from'U. Petersburg to MOS
COW. Ho ha? rotulo it all tho way 200
feet wide, so that the engineer sees
everything on the road. This is part of
the future-tho railroad from point to
point with a mathematical lino; tho rails
ten times stronger than ar?; now used;
the loeomotiveu on wheels of far greater
diameter; the gauge of n relative
breadth; thc signals and times perfectly
settled; tho roads on both sides during
tho transit of trains having thu gate of
tho walls all closed-then instead of
traveling 100 miles an hour, wo shall
mon; safely travel 800 milos un hour."
One of the latest eflbits at improve
ment in locomotives is that of a French
man named Estrade, who has construct
ed an ongino which lie calls La Parisi
enne. I?a Parisionne, when watered and
tired, weighs 42 tons. Its driving w heel...
six in number, aro 8i feet in diameter.
The cylinders are outside, with valve
boxes on tho top. Thc diameter of each
cylindor is 18J, mohos, and tho length ol
stroke is 2 feet and 81 inches. This eu
gine is built for high speed, and will
carry a prossuro of 200 pounds to thc
squaro inch abovo tho atmosphere, or an
absoluto prossuro of 215 poonda. Ee>
1 trade't ongino is designed to run at tho
[average rate of 78 milct? an hour.
