When it ia reruouilvrvd that " all f1ea*h ia
gr**a,"'—which is a tmo propuaitlou—it
will tx« soon that the rauff of the huj erop:
to the world ia Iwyond calculation. When,
wo of tho valu>< of hay we liaro refer-1
one? to ita nutritive«|ua1itic>H; fur hay which
hiul loat thoae, would, ofeourao he aa vulue
1«« aa atr.nr. The ra»re perfect tlio olo-1
lurnt* of nutrition in grai* are prwcrved in
luy, the more valnahle and economical it ia
for feeding pnr|<09cn.
The period at which hay ia cnt lioa much ;
to do with it* nutritivo value. While the
graaa ia growing, and especially during t!»e |
latter part of growing, tho ateim and lmvoa
contain considerable quantities of augur aud
gutu, which aro transformed into woudy 1
fibre tuoatly during tho ripcuing pruoc**,
ami into *«eds. Therefore, when gran ha* ,
attained ita growth, it gains nothing in >
nutritire value hy atandiug. The woody I
fihft' which ia form'.'d and exists in the ri
pWwd gra«*, is for the inowt part tndigcati-'
)4e, and ewry farm t knowa tliat more tliun
half the »**d usually shatter* out when the
gra» In left t.» staii'I till ripe.
I)r. Thompson, in his " Experimental re
surcix* on th» F<kkI of Animals," males
some TCTT judicious remarks. Ho says:
" When gross first springs abort* tho sur- '
face of tho eurth, tho principal constituent
of its early f»Lwi w is water, tho amount of
•olid matter being comparatirely trifling;
as it rises higher into day, the deposition of
a more indurated form of earbm gradually
l».v)ni'H more f »n«idcrahl*; t!ie sugar and
rotable matter at first increasing, then grad
ually diminishing, to gire way to tho d*>
position of woody substance."
If the sugar be an important elc-nent of
the food of animals, then it sliould be tho
object of the farmer to cut gran* for hay
making, at that period when the target
amount of matter soluble in water is con- ,
tained in it. This is tt*<ur<«lly at an earlier
period of its growth than wbcu it baa shot |
into wed, for it is then that w«H>dy natter I
predominate*; a sulwtanoo totally insoluble i
In watjr, ami therefore loss calculated to
■enre as fv*l to animals than substance*:
oupahlo of a.Muming a soluble condition.
This is the first point for oonsidcrution in
the production of hay, sineo it ought to b.>
the object of the farmer to pre* n o tho hay

Farmers differ as to which is tho best |
method of rai»ing corn for fodder. I have i
raised it for four years. I plant it in drills
four foot ajurt one way, mid two ieet tlir 1
other, fnuu four to seven in a lull. Last |
year I planted half an aero at first planting,
tliat was r«ady to cut on the 1st of Auguiit,
In five to my mi!rh cows in tho evening.— !
I planted another field | of three acres ou
the 23d of Juue, on un old meadow where
the grass had run out. When tho first field 1
was gone, thin was ready to begin with.— I
The cow* will give more ajid better milk by j
using this feed. Lost year I had a field
tlut was in logs, briars, %Ukr», and u little (
^nuw. Wo cleared it off, plowed it, and |
plant -<1 the com on tho 1st of July. It
was so wot that it wu not cultivate!, and
wu» iu roustiug curs the last of September.
The stalk* were from eight to ten feet high. i
Two years ago I had two acres, one half
was old, well run, tho other was now
ground. 1 planted on the 15th of June,
cultivated it, aud hoed it, and hud no more
than four or five stalks in tho hill. When '
it cauio in tasMul, I began to feed from it 1
1 cut out tlw small.«t stalks first, until I
cut it all up. I husked out) hundred bush
el* or earn Irom it.
Simo people think that the shocks should
j lx» made small; it Is not noeiwsaiy. The
I lund* will not interfere witii the ear.—
| Wlwu the shock* are larg*. the f*ldi»r keeps j
1 bright. It will not do to put it iu mow or
i staek, as it will heat and mould.

Siuicthing like this lias boon taking place

there may l»e Luthcrs,—and Mcluucthons |

while then' is a fi ?orgo Third adinin'stration, I
there may boa George Washington admin
istratiun. i
11at we have something clso.to do, my
friends, besides coming together to condemn '
iniquity in high place*. Let that l>c done, j
I wy nothing in di»pu ugemcnt of that.
Sin in the high places of this land is com• j
plt*x, multiplex, ain. Itiannot he a mere
isolated occurrence. Congret»-men are rcj>
rcecntntivo tu n. They staud for State*.'
The States are mpowililn, nupectively, for
the doing* of these their Agents and Repre
sentatives. Cabinet men uro National men.
flie Nation accvpts a« its own, unites it I
promptly and dx-idodly rejects and dis >wns
tiieir acta. The influence, not only of their
voicc, hut of their cjamplt, is felt, for good
or for ill, through the nathn. Kvery grow -
uiind und forming character among us, takes
hue aud sliape somewhat from thomiud and.
character of the men wo send to represent
us in tho State and Natiou.
I)onot, therefore, understand me to affirm,
thut unrightful* and tyrannous uud mur-,
dcrous deeds in tho liigh place* of our land,
do not call for our rebuke. They do call
for it—from tho Pulpit, to the humblest cot.
They call for more than our iudignation. |
They demand rectification at our hands, and
•OLurity, so far as !t is in our |>ower to give i
it, against their repetition.
Mot what I wish | nrtieularly now to draw
attention to, as a mutter of no less concern
to us, und which has special importance
from our constaut liability to forget it, is
the fact, that, seen or unseen,abroad Inetn- j
inent stations, or at home in our own hearts, •
sin is, tmK-tUintiully ami radically, tho Kinie(
thing;—as hitcfu! and perilous, as brutal
aud tyraniioiu, htrt in u.t, as without us,'
and afar otT.
1 liavu heard it said in pruisoof ulatedis
tiuguiahed philanthropic, that ho was so
much engrossed with bis gtcut work of res
cuing othir.i from degradation und suffering,
that lie had wholly forgotteu ho himself had
a soul to suve.
The self forgetting spirit, in the true cl^
nilicanee and application of it, is worthy in*
deed of all rcverence and love, liut there
waf no much, to uiy mind, of yrit, us of
praise, in the remark referred to. It wus
sud to uie, not merely :w regarded Lim, of
whom it was nude, but as suggesting a very
common liability. Every iuuii'ii greatest
hiuin(*H, whether as rr*jxvt« himself or the
PkmI of others, is with his awn soul. If we1
*v "in aiKl condemn it in others, hut an
Mind to it, or forget it, In ourselves, wlut
Jo we? Wlut are we? The teaching* of
the Saviour must lie too familiar to require
an answer. " U*A<i/ shall a man ytrc in is
rhanjr for his soul?" •• Work out," toy*i
the Apostle, ''your own salcation
Let us direct attention, then, to tho fart,
llmt if tho terrible iniquities that have late
ly stirred every gtiienus and rightly dis
posal mind among us to its very depths, are
justly deemed worthy of our unqualified
con lemnatiou, as tlagrant violation* of i
Christian and civil law, aud as blows struck <
successively at tho root of our inalienable
rights and liberties, that such, also, is the in'
trinsu and unuirsal chanutrr of sin, wheth
er we liave so r.-gard. d it ur not, rren as it,

Tito crudtLxion of " the Son of Man,"
was a deed lu rvg trl to whic!i, there has J
Nvn, proltuMy, Imt one optni >n and one

If wc allow tho suiuc spirit of worldling,
aud narrow winded prejudice, and liardj

I God, tliut ruled in tlio hearts of tho origi

■ay, the same spirit to rule us, thut ruled
them, how lar tire wo different, morally,
from them?
Often, it occur* to mo,—and yet I desire
to have it still again and moir deeply im
pressed,—! would it alicmji might be, in
connection with overy inward experience of

thoughts that carno to mo was, "in then is

Is it nut, I n»k you, brethren, to look ami ;
see, ii it not tlio nature of sin, to bo all
this—lawless, tint] brutal, and cowardly, i
und murderous? Is it uot all this, oven in
our own bosoms? Havo we boon habitual-,
1}- sinners, without trampling upou the luivs
of God, uur Maker? In nut bin, in tho very
definition of it, "transgression of tho law ?'' |
Again, when appetites und puscion and {
worldly lusts havo prevailed over reason
and conscience, was it not of the nature of,
brutality? Wus it not brute force over-j
riding mural law, und violating tho " tcm
pie of God, which," the ujK^tle says to tlio
disciples, "ye arc." "While you are di.,
vided amongnt yourselves by jealousy an< 1
strife and factious (turtles, ure yo not," u^ks
the ap wtlo, "carnal?"
Onoo more, if wo havo l»ecn prevented by
a weak timidity <ir irresolution, from choos

if wo have conformed ourselves to the opin
ions and fashiohs of this world, because of
tlio inconvenience und uncouifortahlonees of
declaring und obeying conscientiously our
own convictionh of truth and duty, was it
not cowardly't
And foully, if wo havo deliberately set

have for tho sake of a tem jural advantage,;
or to gratify a strong tl.sire, planned ami

This m tho nature, I say, of rin, as wo have
all, inon> or 1cm, had experience of it in
our own Ikwoiuh. It is cssontially despotic,
whether in tho form of solfUhilOM, avarice,
prld'.*, ambition, or whatever last or tho
jfl.'oh. It U imperious, domineering, tyran
nical. It is tho very fath»r of cunning
sophl» tries and lies. It makjs us think
oursotves free, while It ho!d*us In IU grasp ;
that wo lmvo light enough, whilo it is
ing us in darkness; that we uro receiving
tl o very best of life's pleasures, and its
richest gain*, while wo have but a name to
live,—fattening, llko cattle, upon tho pro-j
duco of the earth, but spiritually poor, oiis-i
crublc, and dying. 1) ijwtic, I say,—novor |
content, whilo thero is any free domain i
ar<»und it. It is forever encroaching;—|
watching its chanoo;—creeping stealthily
on ;—breaking down sacredly established
barrier'", ami, under some ingenious plea of
right and liberty, tresjiassing upon tlio ter
ritory of tho soul. It wastes tho soil it
fastens upon, and then wanU more. It is
novcr satisfied, till it gets the govcrniuontof
tlio whole man into its hands ; till it has
laic, morals, and religion under it. It
claims "all tho kingdoms of the world "
for its own. And if there 1k> a Son of God,
whom it can neither seduce by bribery, uori
terrify by throats, into sahvrvionco to its
will, it cries,14 Crucify him, crucify him."
So it hits been, so it it, and so it always will
be—not with one sin, nH with tlio sins of
a State, nor of a Nation, only, but of each
individual soul. " Know ye not," says tho
Apostle, "know yo mt, that to whom yo

down into th« mon» pleasant clhnatc of tho i
lower Del Norto and rapidly through into
California; mid my plan* when I get tli»>tv. i

You tho story now instead of waiting to tell
it to you in California. But I writs in tho1
great hopo that you will not receivo this
letter. When it roadie* Washington you )
may Ik* on your way to California.
Former letter* have made you acquainted '
with our journey no far a* Bent's F*«»rt, ntul,
from report you will have heard tho clrotim*,
stane»* of our de|nrturo from tho Upper'
Pueblo of the Arkansas. Wo left that jilacc
about tho 25th of Nowmbcf, witli upwards
of a hundred good n»i.lM and ono hundred
and thirty bushels of shelled corn, internal
to support our nninial* nenww the snow of I
the high mountain*, and down to the lower
pirt* of tho Grand Hlvcr tributaries, wlirrn
usually tho snow firms no ofiaUcIo to win-1
lor travelling. At the l'ucblo, 1 had en
gaged us a guldo an old trapper well known !
as * Dill Williams,' and who had spent soino |
twenty-live year* of Ms life in tnipping va-1
rlotiH part* of tho Rocky Mountains. Tho i
error of our journey was committed in en-1
gaging this man. Ho proved never to have I
In tho least kimwn, or entirely to have for-)
gotten, the whole region of country through i
which wo were to pas*. We occupied more
than half a month In making the journey I
of a few daji, blundering a tortuous way
through «le.'p snow which already begin to
choke up tho passes, for which wo wer
obliged to wi>sto time in searching. A'xwi*
the 11th D-cemVr wo found ourselv^ at I
tho north of Del Xorto Canon, where that
river ismns from St. John's Mountain, one
of the highest, mo«t rugged and impracti-1
(ub'j of all tho Kooky Mountain raiig<*, in
acccMtildo to trapper* and hunter* even in 1
tho summer time. Across tho point of this;
eLvatcd range our guide conducted us, mid
tuning otill grout confidence 111 his knowl
edge, wo pre«»cd onwards with fatal resolu
tion. 1-vou ulong tho river bottoms t!io
enow was already belly deep for tho initios,
frequently snowing in thevalley anil almost
constantly in tlio mountain*. Tho cold wan
extraordinary; at tlio warmest hours of tho
day (I) twoen onoand two) tho thermometer
(Fahrenheit) »tanding in tho shadoof only
u treo trunk at zero ; the day Miiudiiny, with
a moderate hreuse. We praised up toward*
the miiiiiiiit, tho enow deepening; and in
(our or five day* reached tho nakul ridge*
which lie uhovo tho timbered country. ami
which form tho dividing ground* bstwoen
tho waters of tho Atlantio and I\wiflc
Oceans. Along these nakul ridgiw it stortris
nearly all winter, and the winds bwoop acr<*»
thrm with remorMulewi fury. On our fir*t
attempt to crow wo encountered a pout/trie,
(dry «now driven thick through tho air by
violent wind, and in which objects a ro vi*iMo
only at a short distance,) and* were driven
back, having somo 10 or 12 men variorsly
frozen, face, hand*, or 'cot. Tho guide camfl
nigh being frozen to death here, ami doud
initios wf»ro already lying about tho lire*.—
Meantime, it snowed steadily. Tho nest
■lay we made maul*, and boating a road or
trench through tho Know crossed the cre*t
in defiance of tho poudcrie, and encamped
immediately Mow in the edge of tho tim
ber. TIlO trnil idiowed tt* If a defeat ed J*ir
tv bad passed by ; pack-Kiddle* and |<iek*,
Ntrowed articled of clothing, uml dead muleH
oeatter d along. A continuance of ftor—y
weather paralyzed all movement. W« wore
encamped •omcwliero uliout 12,000 foci
ahovo tiro sea. Wuttwanl, tho country wu*
buried in deep snow. It was hnpoaiihlo to
ndrunoo, ami to tuin luck wan equally im
practicable. Wo were overtaken by Mudden
and inevitable ruin. It *o huppencd that
the only placcs where any gra.Mt could ty>
had were tho extreme summit of tho ridge*
where tho sweeping winds kept tho rocky
ground, lure und tlio enow could not lie.—
Iklow tliVM animaU c./uld not g -t uboat,
tlio snow b-ing deep enough to bury them.
Here, tiiurtfore, in tho full violeuiv of the
