MORAL REFORM. . 4 From the Journal of Public Morals. XOWELL, MASS. In a recent visit to this manufacturing envt we were forcibly impressed with the sober morality of the place. Special ef forts have been made in the regulations of the large manufacturing establishments, against the introduction of those vices which form a moral vortex for the de struction of bodies andsouls in our Atlan tic citie. . Lowell is a city among a thousand. A Freneh traveller in America has thus writtea of this city: In France,'1 he says, "it would be difficult to conceive the condition of young girls, canveyed 20, 30, 40 leagues from their families, to a town where their parents would have no one to watch over or advise them. It is, however, true, that with few exceptions, which confirm the rule rather than destroy it, these circum stances have had at Lowell no bad effects. The English race sre different from the French; their habits and received opin ions are different. Protestant education draws round eUch individual a circle far more difficult to be broken, than that for med by Catholic education. The result is more coldness in the social relations, and to some extent a want of frankness and open-heartedness ; but, in return, very one is obliged and accustomed to show greater respect for the persons of others. What among us would be mere frolic in a young man, is severely reprov ed among the English and the New-Eng-landers, and particularly among the latter, who. are, as is said, Englishmen doubly refined. In that country it excites no sur prise to see the daughters of farmers leave their village and their parents, niter re ceiving a tolerable education, and go alone fifty or a hundred miles to a town where they know nobody, and there reside three or war years in a separate and independ ent sta'.e. They are under the safeguard of the public faith. This implies extreme resetve in manners and an inexorable rig or in public opinion. It must be allowed that in this system there is a tincture of . sadness and dullness spread over socie- V W ul when we Teflect on e dan- cert to which the opposite system exposes the daughter of the poor man, who has no one to watch over heT, and how manw become the victims of temptation, it is dif ficult not to acknowledge that Anglo American prudery is better, all things cunsiuerra, man our toierant manners. However charming. At these manufactories, these young girls are watched over with scrupulous care. Twelve years ago, Lowell aid not exist. When the manufactories were built, houses were also built for the work men. .'Each company erected on its own ground boardin? houses, which are un ? der the care of matrons, who receive a ' . Salary, These matrons, who are gener 4 ally widows, are responsible for their boarders, and are. themselves under the control of the company, in the govern merit of their little community. Each company has its rules which are not mere dyon paper; their strict execution is se cured ty that persevering vigilance which is one of the distin:tivo attributes of. the Yankee.", , ; the same wrijer thus speaks of the basi nets ofnurriags in France and the Uni ted States: " I ought also to do the Americans jus tice m one important respect. I have said that every thing with them was an affair of money. But there is one matter which, with us, a people of strong affec tion, a loving, generous people, has, in a great degree, this mercantile character, and which does not have it among the Americans, and that is marriage. We purchase a wife with our fortune, or we sell ourselves to her for her dowry. The American chooses her, or rather offers himself to her, for hei beauty, her intelli gence, and her qualities of heart. These are the only dowry he seeks. Thus, while we make a matter of traffic of what is most sacred, this mercantile people have a delicacy and an elevation of sentiments which would do honor to the most perfect models of chivalry. To their industry, they Qwe this superiority. Our idre. citi zens, unable to increase their patrimony, are obliged when they take a wife to cal culate the dowry, in order to know wheth er their joint revenue will suffice for the expenses of the household. The Ameri can, having acquired the taste and habit of industry, is sure of providing amply for the wants ofhis family, anddispenses with this pitiful calculation." If the following extract from the same work shows any difference between Eu rope and the United States, respecting the odium attached to a violation of the do mestic constitution, that difference is ow ing to the fact that the United States are yet in their infancy. It is not a little to our credit, that there is much more mo rality among the lower classes of the Uni ted States, than among the high, polite and refined circles of Europe. If we wish to have the morals of France introduced among us, we have nothing to do but to let the vices of our great cities alone, and they will soon exert a controlling influ ence over public morals and manners, in town and country. Mr. Chevalier refers, at the end of the second volume, to the respect and attention shown generally to women in the United States, even in the lower classes : The American community," he says, "is more advanced than the European in what relates to the family and the house hold. The union of the man and thp wifp is more sacred among American laborers, than among the citizens of some countries of Europe. Though in America mar riage is accompanied with less formality and ceremony than with us, and though the conjugal tie is not as indissoluble as in our countries, cases of adultery are ex tremely rare. The unfaithful spouse would become a lost woman. A man who should seduce a woman, or who should be known to have an illicit attach ment, would be excommunicated by the public voice. In the United States, even in the laboring class, a man knows better the obligations of the strong sex towards the weak sex, than among French citi zens. Not only does the American me chanic or farmer spare his wife as much as possible all painful labor, all unsuita ble occupation, but he shows towards her, and towards all women in general, a po liteness unknown among us by men who yet believe they possess much cultivation of mind, and much learning. In the Uni ted States, in public places and in travel ing, a man, whatever be his talents and his services, is not an object of any atten tion. No preference nur anv necnliar politeness is shown him ; all the men are equal, liut a woman, whatever be the station and fortune of her husband, is sure to command universal respect and regard." " The salary of a man being sufficient for the subsistence and main. tenance of his family, the wife h as no other labors tha n thnsp rf trio riniicnkU . n grt-muu vantage lor nerself, but greater for her children. It is now a rule with out exception among the Anglo-Americans, that the woman be exemnred fmm ..... i r i '! v x 11UUOC1JU1U , 1 every rude employment. A woman, for example, never takes part in the labors of the field.

AGRICULTURAL, On the Quality and Growth of Wheat. From a late London paper we learn, that Col. Le Couteur, an officer in the Jersey militia, has recently published a small work, 'on the varieties, properties and classification of wheat.' The details are the results of the writer's own exper iments, on his own property. Circum stances led him to make a collection of wheats: and in the course of five years' close attention and research, it increased to upwards of 150 sorts. To show the importance of attending to the varieties and properties of wheat, Col. Le Couteur mentions, that among these varieties, there are tome that will thrive better than oth ers in the particular soils and situations adapted to each, all over the kingdom that one ear of a superior variety, sowed grain by grain, and suffered to tiller apart, produced 4 lbs. 4oz. of wheat; whereas, another ear, of an inferior sort, treated in the same, manner, produced only I lb. I0oz. a proof of the paramount impor tance of selecting the most productive and farinaceous $ort3 of seed, the profit of sowing one sort, and the loss resulting from the other being manifest The wri ter Temarks that his attention was direct ed to this important subject by professor La Gasca, Curator of the Royal Gar dens at Madrid; that five years since, he accidentally saw about eighty distinct sorts of wheat growing in a nursery gar den in Jersey, some seven feet high, some only four, the ears of some being three, others six inches long; and that the pro fessor explained their nature to him. He requested the professor to visit his crops, considering them to be as pure and un mixed as those ofc his neighbors. To the writer's dismay, the professor drew from the fields, twenty three sorts some white wheat, seme red, some liver-colored, some spring wheat, some dead ripe, the corn shaking out, some ripe, some half so, some in a milky state, some green. He thereupon became convinced that "no crop, in that state, could either produce the greatest weight of corn, give the larg est quantity of flour, or make the best or lightest bread, such as would be produced from a field in an equal and perfect state of ripeness." He then selected the best and most productive sorts of wheat? and secured 14 sorts which he afterwards cul tivated with great care and success, show ing the great profit resulting from this care and selection, and arguing on the j immense consequences to the country, if attention to this subject could be made a national object. The modes by which Col. Le Couteur proceeded and succeed ed, occupied large portions of the volume; but the paper from which we have drawn the preceding account, gives no further information. Boston Courier: From the JS'ew-England Farmer. SMUT llf WHEAT. Mr. Editor : There has been much said about smut in wheat, in years past ; many theories and conjectures have been advanced, but nothing proved, nor any thing verv satisfactorily asserted. Many have been of the opinion that smut will produce smut again, whether sown with wheat, or mixed with the ma nure spread on the wheat ground. But should they tell me the sowingof charcoal would produce trees ofcharcoal, or cause acorns to produce such trees, I should be no more surprised. For the smut of wheat appears to be an inert matter, resembling carbon, with the appearance of lamp-black. I think we have no proof of its producing smut, but to the contrary. A neighbor of mine of veracity, informed me that he one vear had very smutty wheat, and that " the spring following, he took his seed wheat and washed it clean ; but it fell short of sowing the whole of his ground; having no other sed, he took the smut and small wheat which was separated by washing, and that produced wheat as free from smut as his clean seed. Now I would ask if smut in wheat may not be accounted for on the principle of fermentation, or rather effervescence ? Raising such an external motion and heat, as to entirely change the substance of the kernel from white to black, resembling lamp-black, as before stated ; which is caused from too great a degree of acid in the young growing flour. In order to substantiate this, we have the testimony of many farmers; which is this, that when they soaked or scalded their seed wheat in lye, it never became smutty ; and sometimes liming will doit, but not always. In the spring of the year 1836, the wri ter sowed some wheat, and hi. neighbor .owed some of the same kind, the same day, and the same hour of the day, and apparently on the some soil divided by a fence only; his was free from smut, and his neighbor's was so smutty as to injure his flour materially. Now what could make this difference? We know of nothing except the field which produced clean wheat, had wood ashes sown on about the time the wheat was coming up ; and that which produced smut had not. Perhaps the alkali pre vented the grain from receiving so much acid as to produce a fermentation. Should these hints move chemists and philosophers to examine the subject, and ascertain the true cause of smut in wheat, the writer would be more than paid, and the public much benefitted. C. Minot, Me. April 5, IS37. New method of propagating Ap ple Trees. A new plana tor increasing plantations of apple trees has lately been carried into extensive practice by the hor ticulturists of Bohemia. Neither seeds nor grafting are required. The process is to take shoots from the choicest sorts, insert them in a potato, and plunge both into the ground, leaving but an inch or two of the shoot above the surface. The potato nourishes the shoot, while it push es out roots, and the shoot gradually grows up and becomes a beautiful tree, bearing the best fruit, without requiring to be grafted. Whatever may be the success of the undertaking, its novelty is at least an in ducement to give it a fair trial. Farmer and Gardener. To RAISE FORWARD POTATOES. It is stated in the New-England Farmer, that potatoes exposed to a warm sun a few days before planting, will be a week more forward than those planted in the common way. As the experiment will cost but little trouble, we think it worth the trial, and would suggest to those who make it, to favor us with the result of their respective experiments, as all such things tend to add to the sum of agricul tural knowledge, and to inspire an esprit da corps, highly promotive of the gener al interests of husbandmen. lb.

A few of the R lamination of Slavery. " Wo unto him that useth his neighbor's service without wages, and giveth him not for his work." Jeremiah 22 : 13. The editor of this journal, spent the summer and fall of 1820 as a missionary, on the Eastern shores of Maryland. He had occasion, frequently, to remain for three or our days at a time, with some of the more wealthy slaveholders ; mostly church members and officers. The num ber of slaves held by them, individus II y, ! varied irom ten to nfiy or sixty. let these Christian slaveholders, while hev and their children, daily surrounded the family altar, and called on God to multi- ply his mercies towards themselves, had ! no remembrance of their poor injured , slaves. They clothed them badly, fed them sparingly, and neglected their sal- I vation wholly. They raised young slaves j j as they did cattle, without any more ' : thought or moral arrangement. j I The following from the " Christian In- i telligencer' is to the point A FEW PLAIN QUESTIONS FOR PLAIN folks. The following pithy questions, although propounded by British Aboli tionists to the people of Great Britain, are worthy of consideration by the American people. Can a slave marry without his owner's consent? If so, quote the law ; give chap tei and verse. Can a slave prevent the sale ofhis wife n me owner pleases If so, quote the la iv. Can a slave, with impunity, refuse to flog his wife, with her person all exposed if his owner pleases to command him? If so, quote the law.
