grave, once lived in a cave,
I» Hermitage cleverly ;
And while he wu« there, domesticated a Dear,
Just exactly like Jackson did Beverly.
So one hot summer day, to repose down he lay ;
As contracted as Jackson did ever lie,
And sat II ui», tfrovvn wise, to mind oil'the flies ;
Nut unlike the employment of Beverly.
But one obstinate lout still kept buzzing about,
As fearless as Clay, and as jovially—
Hr was Watch'd close by Bruin, who doomed him to ruin,
Willi a vengeance as bitter us Beverly.
When at length the fly chose to perch on his nose,
And like Clay lie bore down on him heavily ;
bays Cuflie, " my lad, now 1*11 have you, by gad."—
it was just a quotation from Bcveriy.
Then he struck with a force, 'twould have knock'd down
a horse.
Or astonish'd the author of Waverly ;
But dreadfm disaster! it fell on his master,
Just like the great blow aim'd by Beverly.
Now in Cuflie's distress his sole comfort was this,—
He had punished the fly most severely;
While the blow in its fall never touched him at all,
That was aimed at by hold Carter Beverly.
The malice of foes in then* spitefullest devilry,
Seldom do as much harm as the friendship of Beverly.

Dr. Brown courted a lady unsuccessfully for ma

A young pert, prating lawyer, one day boasted to

A certain minister, in the overflowings of his/.eal,
was preaching to a large congregation, and at length
he concluded by prayer. Among other expressions,
he prayed, (as his profession usually do on such oc
cassious,) *• And l beseech, thee, with all humanity.
0 ! Lord, to forgive our short-comings ." This ex
pression was reiterated a number of times, to the
confusion of one of his audience, whose name was
Cummings; and who being remarkably short in his
person, supposed himself represented, and took the
entire tendency of the passage to himself. On the
breaking up ot the meeting, he appeared greatly
agitated, and catching his friend by the button, in
quired of him eagerly, what the tl—ibis minister
; meant by exposing him thus openly before all the
congregation—especially as he was so seldom in the
habit of attending divine worship. His friend en
"Oh ! but I

he kept his eve steadily upon me, and pointed at

A fad .—Not long since, in South Carolina, a

awful consequence of disobedience to the Divine
commands, lie exclaimed in a voice of iliuntler. that

"and are there any Jonahs here?" There was a ne

said, "discretion is the better part of valor;" and

Extract of a letter to John Hare Powell Esq.
of Philadelphia by II. IP. i caliierslon/iattg/i, Esq.
Comsqmuling Secretary of the New Fork Agri
cultural Board.
Sir — l had occasion, in a journey of fifteen hull
tired miles, made this winter, m the different States,
to see a great many of the imported cattle, which
have been brought to this country, and to examine
the method alter which their owners keep them du
ring our rigorous winter months.
i'he particular satisfaction I received from the
inspection of your well-kept and valuable animals,
at Powelton, has induced me to address a letter to
you on this subject; in which 1 propose to otter some
remarks arising from the observations 1 have been
enabled to make, and purely from a desire to be use
lui to the country.
With very few exceptions, the importations have
consisted of the favorite breed now io Great Britain, '
"the improved short-hum*." The exceptions are
Devons, the blood of which is getting generally |
spread—a,few Alderneys, and Lancashire. Of Here- j
fords, which have been considered the rivals of the «
"improved short-horns," I did nut see one. Of
these, the Devons are considered an ancient race of
cattle That the variety is a permanent one, is cer
tain from their particular form, their unvarying
mahogany colour, and waving, curly skins. Thou -1
sands of oxen are tobe seen throughout this country,
somewhat lighter in colour, but bearingall the marks
of this blood, except the yellow colour of the muz
zle; and the ring round the eyes. No person can
give an account when the blood was imported, and
hence it is to be concluded that it was brought over
on the first settlement of this country, and that it
came from the Red Devons, then generally prevail-1
ing in England. The Devons are considered in j
England smart walkers, and endurers of fatigue; j
qualities which distinguish the red oxen amongst j
ourselves |
The Herefords are an improved breed, and are -
thought to have sprung from the Devons. They
have bald faces, with deadish colours, are large and
considered profitable as beef; they make strong ox
eu. So much pains has been taken with their bree
ding, that they may be considered now a pure, im
j proved breed. .
The improved short horns are also, a pure, nn
proved breed. The individuals resemble each other!
much, that the most expert person can scarce
distinguish them. They are the largest of all the
breeds. As nr as their short horns g», they are to
be considered a permanent variety : but the original
short horns, before the improvements took place,
were considered a poor breed. The improvements
effected for them what Mr. Bake well dal lor the I
Disl.ley sheep, making them perhaps the most pro-,
(Ruble breed... existence, .1 justice is none to them.
Many controversies are still carrying on ... En
gland as to the origin ot these improvements, which
would not excite much interest here.-the appear j
ante of these superb animals at once satisficsjudges, )
of their great value; and I believe we are all ron
tented vvitn the assurance that the animals we pos
sess ut that breed, spring from the ce e ta e u
Comet, sold for one thousand guineas , a r n>
ling's sale in 1810, and who was boug i >v e •
VPetherill, from whose stock you piocuu. jo

tjeaving aside the celebrity <u tins Dree , w i
has been the inducement for its importa ion in
this country, the proper inquiry loi us is, '
... ought to treut it here : in onler to get the moat
money out of it, in the shortest period of time.
Tins breed is said to afford a greater quantity ot
beef, tallow and milk, than any other, in the same
time, and is remarkable for its early maturity.
Some of the cows aie very deep milkers, and all fair

Breat qualities we must remember, that in their na
tive country it is considered indispensible to keep
t|l(jm e xtri-mely well, and in a very different manner
,-. um the custmn prevailing here; which is,
in sumille ,. to leave cattle to help themselves to

They are entitled to the
milkers; but it is only now and then that a cow giv
ing from 00 to 40 quarts a day is to be met with.
This propensity to convert all the loud into milk is
sometimes met with in individuals ot other breeds.
The property of being very deep milkers, therefore,
is to be considered accidental, rather, than one
which can be continued with any certainty in the
breed.—Take one slmrt-horn with another, no breed
valuable for its milk, or keeps in better Con

A writer in the N. E. Farmer recommends the
substitution of Mulberry Hedges in the places of the
walls anti fences comimmly used in this country for
the division of fields. 1 lie tree is well calculated
for the purpose, being easily cultivated, of a thick
growth, and ot such a nature as to bear dipping and
cutting without injury. I he leaves of course might

the raising ol which on an extensive scale, has-been
again recomnieiuled to the attention o! tanners,
The plants should be set into the ground about one
foot apart, and they should be clipped so as not to
exceed five leet in height, and 18 inches in thick
ness. Let a farmer compare the annual expense ot
taking care ot such a hedge, with that ot keeping in
repair a wooden fence, and he can easily as„et tam
whether a change would be profitable,
A gentleman ot Lauderdale county, A lab. ma,
made, the last season, a considerable quantity ot
Wine from the Muscadine, or Muscadine Giape,

From the Harrisburg Chronicle.
The peach is the most delicious fruit that grows in
this country ; hut the farmer does not rear the tree,
because it "dies so soon." Experience has taught
that Peach trees will live and flourish fifteen or
twenty years, if the ground in which they are plati
j ted be cultivated ; but it their enemy, the worm de
j scribed in the following paragraph, be destroyed
j every year. I should suppose they w ill live much
| longer. Now is the tunc for destroying the worm,
