Orohard Work for tho Month. h'rom the Southern Hortioultarlat. The Huon U now at hand when tin fruit trees should be attended to. Go over the peach orchard, cut oat all the dead wood, shorten in ihe last summer's growth. At least one half, and where the bianobes are o cloea as to interlock thin them out, leaving Ihe head, of Ihe treea open to the sunlight; this adds not only to the rich, bright color but also to Ihe jtaror of the fruit, Probably nothing is more beneficial to the health of a tree than a nice clean trunk or body; scrape off all old dry bark and examine carefully about ihe eollar or portion next to the ground for (he borer, if any gum is exuding it is a ture sign that he is at work. Dig away she soil down to Ihe roots and with a sharp-pointed knife cut him out. This is the surest and only reliable Way of gel ling lid of this pest. Afler examining every tree in this manner the orchard should be well worked by plowing, but as it is difficult to plow close lo the trees especially if they are large enough to bear, they rhould be dug around with a pronged hoe or hoe fork, care being taken not lo injure the surface roots. A good manure for the peach, where the f - a,l a nnl anffiainnllc rt(ll in compost y of leaf-mold or scrsDinns from the wood yard, and stable manure, dig this in lo the depth of one or two inches, and give that most of our knowledge of this ashes bs a top dressing, when they can ; branch of the subject hss been obtained be bad eilber leached or unleached; a ! jn precisely this way.

Petters, formerly of llolivar, Tenn., was lately remarried to till divorced wife divorced on ac count of the terrible Van Doru affair in 1803, which so startled the whole country, though occurring in the midst of our bif; war's loudest alarms. The doctor has thus been married ' four times, but has had only three wives. It is mentioned, in the same I connection, that Miss Peters, his I daughter, haa, to the infinite gnitifl i cation of her friends, abandoned her intention of " taking the black veil " I in the Catholic convent to which she retired soon after the war. Hugh Martin, Esq., former! v of I Maury County. Tenn.; and who, soon afler the divorce, married her "first love," lived happily with him until his deiilli, which occurred some year or two since, and now quietly returns to her " second love," by re marrying her first husband ! The case of Ir. James Mcintosh, of Knoxville, East Tenn., is almost precisely similar in its outlines, though far more remarkable, than that of Mr. Hugh Martin. Dr. Mc IuUksh remarried his divorced wife a few months ago, after a separation of some twelve or fifteen years ; during which time, like Martin, he had re mained single, hut his wife had mar ried a former suitor and most worthy man, lived happily with him, until made a widow by his death, her first husband and " first love," redeemed, and disenthralled from that arch enemy of domestic peace " the wine cup " returned, and a second time claimed, and won her for his own, in the holy and, in these degenerate times, thrice honorable estate of matrimony I One of the strangest things about Dr. Mcintosh's case, was, that the divorce was not de manded by either himself or his wife, but wai amicably brought about by their mutual friend; and, still stranger, was the fact, that when some months later, she was asked in mairiage by her former suitor, the Doctor was in good faith consulted about the matter as her best friend, anil freely gave his consent, saying, that it anybody in the world was 1 worthy of her (which he doubled) it was liis trleud M , to whom she i was accordingly married ! All these " marriages extraordina ry " occurred in " high life," In Ten nesseeall the parties being ereme de la ereme of the most respectable society In either ot three grand divi sions of that State. Verily, "truth it strange stranger than fiction." And there are things ; constantly happeuing all around us in everyday life, which no romance writer, no dtamatist (save an over shadowing genius like Shakespeare !) would dare to make use of, for fear of being accused of overdrawing his pictures of life and human nature.
