The Grasshopper. A correspondent of the Maine Farmer thus homoroaslv points ont i plan to thin off these destructive insects. The grass hopper, undoubtedly; was created in the beginning when every thing bImj was, nd probably for some useful purpose. Although we my consider it a nuisance and trouble that ought to be removed, yet in former times they have been con sidered a blessing; and perhaps a luxury. The ancient Greeks, whose literary taste was very correcf, and whose sense of taste possibly might be qnite as correct, used them as an article of food ; but how they were caught, and how they were prepared for the table, whether in sonp, pie or sau sage, we are unable to say ; and therefore, shall leave it to some Greek student to investigate and bring to light. In the meantime, we would recommend to all our brother farmers to manufacture all their grasshoppers into good fat turkeys. For this purpose let ns commence a sort of peculiar warfare, and each one acting as a recruiting officer, raise and prepare, to bring into the field, a regiment of val iant young turkeys, armed and equipped as nature directs, for a minute inspection and general Bold review give each regi ment in command to old Col. Gobbler, who with epaulets on his head and spurs on big heels, will lead them on to victory with as much certainty of success, as even old Zack himself. They will, undoubt edly, fatten upon the spoils of the enemy, and after the summer campaign is ended, they can bodisbauded about thanksgiving time, and being well dressed and washed, will aid ns very much in our rejoicings. This plan is the most feasible, inasmuch as these insects are, in part, the natural food of the turkey, and from the fact that the turkey is admirably fitted to seize and devour them. There may be objections to using turkeys in this business, but it is the only practicable mode of destroying them that we can think of, nnless we im itate the ancint Greeks, which at present, we are not quite refined enough to do. "R.EMEDT FOR SmiPED BCGS, &C. These destructive insects have appeared in greater numbers than nsual this season, and we are almost daily inquired of re specting the means of preventing their "ravages. The common application, such as dusting the plants with ashes, plaster, sulphur, fcc, seems to have but little eflVct unless it is to injure the plants. We have experimented on these varmints many years, and never have found a rem edy so easy and effectual as sprinkling the vines night and morning, with suds made of Whale Oil Soap. This article is obtained in the process of bleaching sperm oil. It is sold at seed stores at 25 cent per quart. To make the Suds. Dtssolvo the soap in two or three times its measure of hot water, then dilute the liquid with cold (soft,) water in the proportion of about eight gallons of water to a quart of soap. Or, in other words, tako a common sized pail, two thirds full of hot water, stir in one gill of the sonp, and when cool it is ready for use. Wet the leaves on both sides, if possible, without spilling much on the ground. It will promote the growth of the plants as well as keep off the bugs, it not too plentifully. This is also an effectual remedy forslugs and lice on fruit trees. 1-or this purpose, it is best applied with a common syringe. Geneves Farmer. Tamk, vs. Pbaikib Grass at tiik West. Many farmers at the West have argued that the wild herbage of the prairie, was superior to the cultivated grasses for hay and pasturage. Its unstinted abundance. "when in season, made them forgetful of 'the limited duration or the supply, and ths general absence of cultivated grasses readered it difficult to draw just conclu sions in regard to their comparative value. While it was known that the native grass es Btarted late in spring, ripened in sum mer, and were early destroyed by frost, it was not known that the cultivated va rieties on the same soil, would prove of greater permanence and vaJue. Hut the actual test, this season for instance, of cul tivation and experiment, proves that though the prairie grass has been worth less for pasturage since the 10th of Octo bcr, the tame grasses at this time (a month later,) are green, nutritious, and palata- 'blc. Most western farmers now endeavor to snpply their 6tock with early spring and late autumn pasturage upon their own farms depending npon the prairie range for only a portion of tho season, when its product is at its highest stage of ex cellence. To Ccrk Sheep Killing Dogs. If any of onr farmer readers are so nnfortu nate as to have a dog that will kill sheep. we recommend the following cure : oeieci me stoniest and most vicious old ram in your flock, and shear him close ; then get a small ropo, thirty-five reet long, and tie one end around the ram's neck ami the other end around the lng s neck and turn them in a ten acre field, well cleared of stumps, brush and cornstalks, and let them remain two hours, and if that old ram don't knock all the sheep killing propensities out of tnatdog, why then, as bamnel btonestreet would say, "I hope I may never see chinkapin time again." That dog will never have the conrage to look a sheep in mo race again. Stookino Corn. A farmer in Harvard. last year, made an experiment to test the comparatively ntility of "topping" corn and "stooking," or cutting np stalk and butt with the ear on. The result was in favor of "stooking." The shelled corn from four rows stooked, weighed 47 ft. 6 os. more than that shelled from the mine quantity of ears from butts that had been topped in the nsual way. The labor of harvesting the stooked (except cotasking,) was less than by the usual mode. Ashes, derived from the burning of the trimmings of apple and other fruit trees, should be applied about the roots of grow ing fruit trees, as they restore to the soil the same inorganic salts which a previous growth had drawn from it. Hongariax Grass. Hon. A. B. Dick inson wriea to the Country Gentleman, that the Hungarian grass of last year, and the Honeyblade grass of this year, " is nothing more than what millet was forty years ago."

There was a certain lawyer on Gape Cod, a long time ago, the only one in j those "diggins" then, and for aught we; know, at present. He was a man well to do in the world, anil, what was some what suqrising in a limb of the law, ad verse to enconriging litigation. One day a client canu to him in a ter rible rage: "Look here. Snnire." said he, "that Vie blasted shoemaker down to Pigeon Cove, has gone and sued me for the mo ney for a pair of boots I owed !nm." "Did the boots suit you? " Oh 1 yes I've got them on now first rate boots." "Fair price?" " Oh, yes." "Then you owe him tho money lion tly ?" "Of course." "Well, why don't you pay him?" " Why, because the blasted snob went and sued roe, and I want to keep him out ol the money, if I kin." " Jt will cost you something. "I don't keer a cuss for that. How much money do you want to begin with?" "Oh, ten dollars will do." "Is that all ? Well, here's an X, so go ahead;" and the clieut went out, very well satisfied with the wgiuning. Our lawyer next called on the shoe maker, and asked him what he meant by commencing legal proceedings against M. " hy," said he, " I kept on scndin to him, till I cot tired. 1 knowed he was able to pay and I was determined to make him. That's the long and short of it." "Well." said tho lawyer, "he's al ways been a good customer to yon, and I think you voted too hastily. There's a trifle to pay on account of your proceed ings but I think you had better take this five dollars, and call it square." "Certain, Squire, if you say so, and darned glad to get it," was the answer. So the lawyer forked over one V, and kept the other. In a few days his client came along, and asked how he had got along with tho case. "Rapidly!" said the lawyer; "we've nonsuited him! and he will never trouble you more." "Jerusalem! that's great!" cried the client; "I'd rather a gin fifty dollars, than have him yet the money for them boots!" Short op Nkws. Some years ago, a lady noticing that a neighbor was not in her Rent at church one Sabbath, called, on her return home, to inquire what should detain bo puuetual an "attendant Un entering the bouse, she found the fa mily bny at work. She was snrprised when her friend addressed her : "Why, la! where have yoa lieen to day, dressed np in your Sunday clothes?" -"To meeting." "Why, what day is it?" " Sabbath day." "Sal, stop washing in a minute! Sabbath day ! Well, I did not know, for my husband has got so plagney stin gy he won't take the papers now, and we know nothing. Well, who preached?" " Mr. ." "What did ho preach about?" "It was on the death of onr Savionr." "Why, is he dead? Well, all Boston might be dead, and we know nothing about it!

A State road is now opening, and will soon be completed from the opposite side of the Missouri River to Des Moines, in Iowa, and as there is a new steam ferry recently establiflhed. this will be the most direct and convenient route for the emigration to Northern and Western Kansas. A Rajroad has already been chartered to Fort Riley, in the interior of the Territory, and will be built at no distant day. The healthfulnesa i of the climate, and fertility of the soil are proverbial, and are surpassed only by the beauty of the gently undulating prairie. This portion of the public domain is rapidlyfillingup, but still most valuable lands can be obtained within a very reasonable distance at the government price. White Cloud, though scarcely a year old, contains one of the best hotels in Kansas: five stores all doing a good business, and a class of buildings superior to most new towns, and has a populati of five hundred, and is rapidly improving in every respect. Already there are flourishing schools in operation in the place, and whithin eight mUes, in the growing town of Highland, there has been established a Urn versity under the management of the Presbyterian denomination, which is now under the process of erection the cost of wich, will be more than twenty-five thousand dollars. Thus the morals and intellect of the people will keep pace with the improvements of the country, and render White Cloud, as a commercial mart, and the adjacent country as an agricultural district, the most desirable and attractive portion of the mighty West.

At length the public have a Life of Thomas Jefferson, that is not onl v fascinating, and there' fore sore to be popular, but one that will stand the essential historic test that of accuracy and trntblulneis. it is seen that the ground-work or the whole is authentic eo temporary mate rial, and that of the highest order.

We would not compare this volume with that inimitable and incomparable biography of Boswell.and yet so taithlul is ine portraiture that Jeueraon is mad to a raw or mmscit, mat nis nature, his verv soul, is delineated with a distinctness not unlike that in which Johnson stands out in the pages of Boswell.
