In preparing tlie ground lor winter wheat, let it be well pulverized, and manured upon tlie surface wiili fine well rotted mamite.— This gives the wheat plant strength to endure the cold months and fits the ground lor re ceiving clover seed early in the spiing. Th.rty years ago a man in Massachusetts planted some 30 acres of acorns, and tlie re suit is a fine oak torest with trees Irom a loot to a loot and a half in diameter. We trust that man is still living to enjoy the fruits of his labor, and if he is not, the coming gener ation will bless his memory. Farmers sometimes make a mistake in crowding the soil with roots, which should ar ways have room enough. When stand iug too thick don’t he so teuder hearted as not to thin them out. We know it is unpleasant to pull up and throw away a Iresh good lookin',’ plant, kut then it must be done, if you expec4 a profitable crop. It is said that teuder raspberries and flow era do better at Quebec than at New Orleans. If this be true, it turnishes a subject of study tor the florist and philosopher. To have mote land than can be used is like selfrighteousness, the more you have of it, the worse off you are. Large farms aie otteu very unprofitable. They make hard work, but yield a small profit. “A little farm well tilled and a little wile well willed”; every body knows these verses, lor they are almost as old as the hills. But there is good com mon sense in them. Strawberries set out in September will yield a half, not a whole crop next year. It is well to remember this. Perhaps every farmer does not fully under stand tail plowing. All soils an; not lit to plow in the tall. When a soil melts in the rain and bi comes like a mortar bed, it should not be plowed in the fall, but heavy clays which the frost pulverizes should be. Generally fall plowing is best, and if the same land is plowed in the spring, it will not be injured. Mother earth loves to be tlioioughly manip ulated belore she gives ample sust 'nance. Colmx, who is to be our next Vice-Presi dent, has introduced a strawberry at South Bend, Indiana, which is the largest, both in plant and fruit, of any variety, and is very productive. But it is too soft to ship and is only lit for home use. Californians grow the largest vegetables in the world and do things on a grand scale. Iheir steamplow promises to be a great success. It cuts furrows nine feet under and from five to eight inches deep, pulverizing the soil very fine and travels six miles an hour. It weighs only seven tons. We dare not say how many acres it will plow in a day but it would turn over a decently sized larrn in a few hours. As Mayberry in (be play says: ‘‘This is a great country,” and in some things California takes the lead. He» wheat fields are destined to be much more valuable than her placers of gold. The world may be governed too much, but the earth is not tilled enough. Young maul don't look with con tempt upon farming! It is the most noble employment you can engage in. While trade and traffic may tempt you to be a little tricky, if not absolutely dishonest, farming will not only put money in your pocket, but tend to make you the “noblest work ot God.” Auiucola. _ _ ... The Annie* af (iranl and Lee iu 1864-5. According to the World, “Lee’s total lorce, including reinforcements, was 70,000.”— Against this we have simply to set the fact, shown by the records of the commissary gen et al of prisoners, that the number of prisou ers taken by the armies of the Potomac and James Irom May 1, 1864, to April 9, 1865, was 66,512. Add to these the number of kill ed and wounded, and the abs irdity of limit ing Lee's lorce to 70,OCX), or auything like it, becomes apparent. The World says that •‘when both armies had reached the James, June 10. the number of Grant’s army which had been put horn tie combat was 117,000.” The tact is that Grant’s entire loss from May 4.1864, to April 9, 1865. was 12,561 killed, 64.452 wounded, and 26.988 missing; total, 104,001. During the same time Lee's losses were at least 16,000 killed, and 50,000 wound ed, besides 67.512 missing; a total of 126 512. At the opening ot the campaign, Grant had on the Kapidan 98,019 men, and under But ler 25,000 more, making 123,019 altogether. Lee, at tbe same time, bad on the Kapidan 86,742, and in and about Richmond and Pe tersburg 32,654, making in all. 119,396. So far, then, from being outnumbered by our troops three to one, the rebels were nearly even with us.—Aeio York tian. Portland and Rutland Railroad. Centre Harbor, N. H„ Sept. 9,1868. ! To the Editor of the Press: The first meeting of the New Hampshire Central Railroad Corporation was held at this place to-day in accordance with the terms of the charter. There was a large attendance of representative men from the several towns in terested, from Ihc counties of Carroll, Belknap and Grafton. Hon. Wm. M. Weed of Sandwich was made chairman, and S. K. Mason, of Bristol, clerk. Remarks were made by Judge Fowler of Bris tol. Wm. Dyer of New Hampton, SauDorn B. Carter, Esq., of Ossipee, John W. Bedee, E-q., of Meredith, Thomas J. Whipple of La conia, Dr.W. H. H. Mason of Moultonboro,Da na Woodman ot New Hampton, and John A. Poor aud A. C. Rice of Portland, setting forth the claims and prospects of the enterprise. The reports of the engineer in charge of the surveys of the lines w.re also read, showing with the plan and profiles a most favorable route from the northern railroad in Danbury through Bristol, New Hampton, Meredith, Center Harbor, Moultonboro, Hardwick, Tam worth, Ossipee, Freedom and Effingham, to the State line. The Engineer, C. H. Latham, Esq., says: A cursory examination is sufficient to sh iff iu remarkable adaptation to the cheap con struction and easy maintenance and operation of a railroad, and in these respects it chal lenges comparison with any equal extent of continuous territory in New England, where any railroad has been or may be constructed. The last twenty miles ol' tne road may be laid most direct; the general surface of the valley varies but little from level and the char acter of the formation is the very best in na ture for the construction of a railroad, While 1 would not ignore the fact that on some portions of the proposed line the work will lie quite heavy and the direction some what circuitous, yet taken as a whole, the line is exceedingly favorable for the construction of a railroad across the State, both for the ex pense involved in the construction and the character of the route secured. He estimates the cost of the line at from $20,000 to $25,000 per mile (exclusive of furni ture at the present scale of prices. Between Bristol and Tamworth a survey is in progress ot another liue by way of Squam Lake passing through the village of Holder ness, which will be completed the present autumn. The’ choice of routes for some thirty miles between Bristol and Tamworth excites a live ly comp etilioli betweeu Holderness and Mere cith as to the point where the line ol the Cen tral railroad shall strike the line of the B., C. Montreal ra ilroad. There was a large delegation iu attendance from both of these towns. After full di scussion and the admission of associates it was voted to proceed to the choice of directors. The vote resulted in the unani mous choice of the- following gentlemen: Hon. O T. Fowler of Bristol, Wni. Dyer of New Hampton, John W. Beede ol Meredith, Dr. W. H. H. Mason of Moultonboro, Wm. M. Weed of Sandwich, Hon. Larkin I). Mason of Tamworth and Henry I. Burke of West Ossi pee. At a subsequent meeting of the directors* Hon. O.T. Fowler was elected President, 8. K. Mason ot Bristol Clerk, and Cyrus Taylor ot Bristol, Treasurer Very manv interesting fact* wore elicited as to the former and present trade relating to Central New Hampshire, showing that the trade of 60 towns with a population of 71,321, with a valuation of 1860 of $21,605,551, would be turned to Portland, its former market place, by the building of the proposed line—which now finds its market elsewhere. The distance along the frontier Is over 100 miles in favor of Portland over Boston and av eragings miles of distance in lavor of Port land as against Boston. The sentiment of the people of Central New Hampshire in favor of this new line to Portland is entirely unani mous, and the several towns on its route con taining 20.072 people in 1860 with avaluatiou of $5,135,466 in 1360 are ready to follow the ex ample of Bristol as soon as this line Is seoured from the State line to Portland. This enter prising town at or near the extreme western end of the line, and connected with Boston al ready by railroad, led off in voting 5 per cent, of its valuation to the stock of the New Hampshire Central Railroad. A public meeting of the friends of the en terprise will be held at West Ossipee on Tues day the 22d of Sept, at 10 o’clock A. M. _ R. R. V nrleticH. —A masquerade uuder water has taken place at Berlin. Five hundred swimmers, wearing curious and characteristic dresses swam trom the Oberbaum down to General von Pfuel s river batbs, a distance of about five hundred yards. When they had arrived at the latter place they performed various feats of strength aud agility in the water, to the de light of a vast crowd of spectators. A great part of the effect was produced by the quaiut ness of the costumes. The first company rep resented “the ladies,” and wore chignons and little Paris hats, and carried parasols. There were two companies of negroes, and a very numerous one ot red Indians, with their bod ies painted and their faces tattooed, and wear ing head-dresses and feathers. Besides these there were swans, river gods, Chinese, dandies and various other ^characters. One of the swimmers at the head of the procession per formed a very difficult feat of playing the na tional air, “Ich bin ein Prusse,” (I am a Prus sian) on the horn. The file lasted an hour, aud passed off without accident. —Lookout Mountain is crumbling, and the neighbors fear that some internal forces are at work.

Count Otto Von Mdrner was born in 1781, and during his long life of eighty-seven years took a very active part in the politics of his country. In 1810, on the death ot Charles Augustus, Count von Mdrner went to Paris and offered the Swe dish crown to Marshal Bernadotte. The Mar shal then presented himself as a candidate tor election as Crown Prince, and Count von Mdrner labored so sealously in his behalf that the election resulted in bis favor, notwith standing the ill-concealed opposition of the King and his Court. Ultimately Bernadotte was crowned king as Charles John of Sweden, and Qount von Mdrner was appointed his aide-de-camp. -•The death of Christian Fredrick Scbon bein, ot Basle, on Sunday last, removes one ot the most eminent chemists in the world from the useful labors ot his most practical science. He was the discoverer of ozone, and the iu veutor of gun-cotton, which, though useless for purposes of war, yet dissolved in ether be came, nnder the name of collodion, a valuable aid in photography and in medicine. He was the author of several chemical treatises, was the friend of Faraday, and at the time of his death had almost completed his sixty-ninth year. —Kev.

The Tribune says that Tommy Haudan, who is claimed by the sailors to be a wickeder man than John Allen ever was; and Sojer (soldier) Brown, who is wickeder than Tommy Iladdan; and Kit Burns, who is wickeder than Bojer Browu, have all signified their willingness to have prayer-meetings in their respective deus a.) soon as they can get them in order tor that purpose. The Tribune does not say that any one of these gentry has oflered to go to work and earn an honest livelihood. —At an intruded wedding, just as the cere monies were about to begin, the bride sudden ly called upon the bridegroom to abjure tobac co, on pain of forfeiture of wedded bliss, &c., which he reiused to do—then and there tak ing a fresh quid from his tobacco box, to show his independence. Whereupon the young la dy took out a dainty box, “took a chew,” amid the applause of the guests, and ordered the clergyman to go ahead.

He had seen his lather drink trom the bottle during the day, and was trying to imitate him. —The condition of the people on the Red River of the North seems to be even worse than was at first reported. The St. Paul Press says the case is just this: “Ten or twelve thousand people, immured iu a distant region, four or five hundred miles beyond our western frontier, arc on the eve of starvation. The grasshoppers have utterly destroyed the crops of the farmers, while, by an unprecedented combination of misfortunes, the hunters, who constitute a large part ot the population, have returned from the plains without their usual supplies of buffalo meat. While their wants are thus pressing, the time within which they can be reached with relief from this quarter is very short. In a few weeks, when the frost shall have killed the grass on the praries, it will he extremely difficult for the trains to reach there with supplies, for want of sub sistence to feed the animals. Before Novem ber it is not improbable that these starving people may he walled in by five hundred miles of snow from any possible aid except what may dribble through on dog trains. ’ —Miss Blanche He Bat, a member ol the Booth family, graml-daughter of J.
