The following illustration of these sig
nificant, words was employed by a promi
nent .advocate of our cause at one of his
public lectures in this city. We quote
from memory, and hence cannot give his
precise language. The sense, however,
is unaltered :
A member of a gentleman's family is
taken very sick in the night. He is im-

for a physician. On arriving at his
residence, he Immediately dismounts,
immediately arouses him, and immediate
ly informs him of the illness of his fami
ly. The Doctor also immediately arises,
and takes immediate measures for visiting
his patient. On his way he is perhaps
encountered by a snow storm, and man
and beast are prostrated by its force. Not
discouraged, he immediately recovers him
self, immediately secures his horse, imvie
diatehj resumes his journey, and though
he does not immeiiatefy arrive at its end,
he has taken the only just and proper
method of attaining it. Upon reaching
the sick man, he finds him very ill. and
that it is necessary immediately to bleed
him. This done, the patient is immediate
ly better. , Now though a considerable
time may have elapsed between the first
and last of these'events, who will doubt
but that this gentleman took the only fea
sible plan for relieving his friend."
The parallel between this case and the
course pursued by abolitionists, may be
followed out by the reader in his, own
mind. Facts for the People.
Temperance. No man ever began
to drink, for the purpose of becoming a
drunkard; no man ever meant to be a
drunkard; no man wishes to be a drunk
ard. How is it then that so many are
drunkards? Ardent spirits was to them
what a bait in the snare is to an unwary
bird. They knew not the danger they
were in when they began to be cautious
drinkers. Cautious drinking is an en
deavor to pull the bait out of the trap
without getting caught. Let it alone.
No man is safe who drinks cautiously.
If you get into the habit at all, it is like
the rnsh or ignorant mariner entering the
drsh of the maelstroom, that great whirl
pool on the coast of Norway. He can
not keep upon the edge. Each circum
ference carries him nearer and nearer to
the centre, and, of course, to irretrievable
destruction. His only safety lies in keep
ing out of the current and at a distance
from it. Some people drink to drown sor
row. Unwise! thev drown themselves.
They are about as reasonable ns the mad
commander of a vessel, who, because he
had bad troubles on his voyage, ran his
vessel into the whirlpool, that the dizzi
ness produced by the rapidity with which
he made the circumference, might cause
him to forget his troubles. Trumpet.
We observe with pleasure, in many
parts of the country, an increased atten
tion to thorough farming, particularly to
raising large crops by copious manuring;
but there is one essential point which is
still greatly neglected, a general and reg
ular system of rotation. The great ad
vantage which mi?ht result from this
practice is very strikingly exhibited in a
cornfield now growing, a part of which
was last season occupied with a crop of
ruta bagn, and the remainder with corn.
The whole field was equally covei ed with
manure, before the crop was planted.
The result is, that the part of the crop of
corn growing where the ruta baga sto d,
promiststo be at least double in amount
that which follows the part of the fkd I
occupied with corn last ye;ir, though it had
no other advantage whatever, over the
other part,' than that of having been pre
ceded by a crop properly adapted to a
part of a course of rotation.
Suppose that on an average twenty-five
per cent, is gained by rotation, over the
common practice where this is not attend
ed to; that a farmer's annual crops are
worth one thousand dollars, and that all
his expenses are six hundred i his nett
profits of course are four hundred; if
now his crops are increased twenty -five
per cent, by rotation, his profits (no addi
tional expenses whatever being in this
case required,) are immediately raised to
six hundred aui fifty dollars. It is be
Jievea that th difference in these two
modes would generally be much greater
if the best system of succession was at
tended to ; nor is this the only advantage : !
for wnne improper culture tenls constant
ly to impoverish soil, a good course of
rotatioryis constantly increasing its fer
tility. Ceneee Farmer.
PubUe Sale of Fine Cattle
We find In the -Philadelphia papers a
notice that on the lith of Sentemiw xill
be sold at the.seat of Col. Powell thirty
three head of cattle, Bulls and Cow's,
selected by Mr. Whittaker the celebrated
l!h catt'e breeder, and by the request
or t-oj; Powell sent out to that city for
sale. -1 he sale will: be by. auction, and a
cu.npeuuon is expected. Araonr
m2:fn.VPU- f tho best specf-
mens of the,nmproved,breed of ?aU c jn
that co,,n.tryj animals whose nam e a e
d.st.ngu.shed in the Herd. Book of Eng
lish Agriculturists; npd whose qualities
and blood will not therefore admit. of dis
pute. We consider every importation cf such
cattle a national good : and trust the suc
cess of this experiment will be such as to
justify a repetition. .That our stock needs
improving, no ,one,who witnesses Uhe
scraggly, lean,' light quartered- normals
found in most of our pastures, and digni
fied in courtesy by the name of cattle, can
possibly doubt; and in such, importations
we have the means ready to our bauds.
The farmer who should introduce such a
bull to his farm for the use of himself
and his neighbors, would confer an es
sential benefit on the community ? around.
We know there are many who sneer at
the idea of improving our stock, who
think our old fashioned cattle are good
enough, and who speak with contempt of
improved short horns, or high blood
Leicesters or Merinos. Some of these
individuals, however they may be inac
cessible to argument, will believe the evi
dence of their senses, especially when the
coin in their neighbors' pockets compared
with their own, gives weighty testimony
in favor of crosses and improvement.
Thawe have occasionally fine looking
animals, and those that combine excellent
points for fattening and milking, among
our native breeds, few will be disposed to
deny; and could there be any certainty
that in rearing from such, the progeny
would resemble the parent, the necessity
for importing stock would be materially
lessened. But there is no such certainty;
the good qualities belong to the individu
al animal, and not to the breed, and there-
fare mav not be perpetuated; while in the
improved breeds the good qualities have
become permanent, a part of the constitu
tion as it were of the animal, and there
fore descend undiminished to the progeny.
It will besides we think be found, that in
nine cases out of ten, our most promising
native cattle a3 they are termed, are cattle
that have a cross of imported blood about
them, and to which the most of their val
uable qualities may safely be attributed.
Perhaps no stronger argument in favor of
improving the breed of cattle or sheep in
any country can be found, than the fol
lowing facts stated at a late meeting of
the English Devon Agricultural Society.
The chairman in referring to some re
turns showing the increased produce of
cattle, sheep, and wool, as regards number
and qnal ty in that county, as well as the
improved weight of each animal, remark
ed a fact which maybe unknown to some
of our readers, namely that in 1750 the
average weight of each bullock slaughter
ed was 370 pounds; while in 1831 the
average was 800 pounds each, So also
of sheep; in the first period the average
weight was only 28 pounds each, whilst
in the latter they were 80 pounds each. -76.
From Goodell's Speech at Boston.
" We recognize your Principles, but de
precate your Measures!'
Our measures ! Whatarethey? And
how can they be separated from oae pria
ciplesl Sir, I venture to affirm that anti
slavery measures are nothing more nor
less than the practice of anti-slavery prin
ciples. And I affirm that our measures
cannot be discarded no, nor neglected,
nor unsupported without an utter dere
liction of those principles.
Our measures what are they? For
the most part the publication of our princi
ples dissemination of our doctrines!
That k is, emphatically, that is called im
prudent, and inflammatory, and insurrec
tionary, and treasonable, an 1 incendiary.
For this the mails are rifled! For this
our peaceful citizens are outraged. To
prevent the dissemination of our princi
ples, the pulpits are closed against our
lecturers, and the houses buiit by the
people are closed against themselves!
To shut out our principles, the gay nw
of the seminary is enforced the ecclesi
astical anathema is put forth. .For the
same purpose, the aristocratic mob is col
lectec the threat of disunion is b
ic bed
out the southern demand is made,
without benefit of clergy.' to the promul
gator of our principles nay, more; the
northern threat of a compliance with these
demands! Our most obnoxious 'meas
ure,' is the proclamation of our ' princi
ples.' And it is chiefly against this very
measure, thai the wavering and double
minted exclaim, when they sny, ' we
agree with your principles, but dep:eeate
your measures:
Our measures ! What are thev ? The
diffusion of light the inculcition of
truth the same truth that is claimed to
be the public creed, and the faith ol our
opponents themselves ! Our measures
what are they? To bear testimony
against sin to plead the cause of the
oppressed to open our mouths for the
dumb to wash our own hnnds from
blood guiltiness, and touch not the unclean
thing to purify the churches of Christ
to reform the abuses of the state to
change the public sentiment to diffuse
correct information lo sav that sin is
exceedingly sinful to caM theft and rob
bery by their appropriate and bible names.
Our measures! In what manner are
they prosecuted By what instruments
are they carried forward By the pul
pit Dy tne, press by the living ayent
by the action of the churches by the
onstituiional use of our influence, as
citizens, to procure a correct legislation
by petitions to Congress and the legisla
tures ofthe several states in a word, bv

perance reformation, and all similar en
terprises have been carried on ; by the
same means so perseveringly employed

short time before died in the poor house.
It was tnrec yards Jong; and with the

LovejoyV Appeal. We call upon
every man who values, the liberty of the
press, without distinction of sect or party,
in religion or morals, whether abolition
ists ornot, to respond to this appeal, and
enable this devoted and heroic brother,
who is willing to jeopard himself for the
third time in vindication of the right of
speech, to resume his labors and stand his
ground " for the supremacy ofthe laws."
Wo would hope there is 'not an editor
among us, so recreant to liberty, as now
the case is understood, to refuse to print
this appeal, or to second the application.

" One Hundred Guns." In the-iate
election Of Representatives to Congress
from Rhode Island, the political party pre
dominant last year were defeated. When
the news reached this city the party-pleased
with the change, resorted to Bunker
Hill, and discharged one hundred guns
" in manifestation of their joy." A wi i-er
in the Courier, very justly as we think,
expressed a strong disapproval of gu,
noisy exultation. His sentiments are full
of sound sense, and equally applicable tu
both parties. Zion'' s llrr.
It is not great to triumph in this way.
It seems to say, We have enemies, ami
we have conquered, and we lauih tln-m
to scorn. It is not" noble to triumph ov. r
the fallen. It is needless to exnsper.. ti
the conquered. By add'ng insult to th
shdme of defeat, the conquered are on'v
aroused to more vigorous exertions.
Tht'ir pride is touched ; and o bring thoe
over by fiiir argument whom we hae
once insulted, is almost a hopeless undertaking.
Party spirit, far from diminishing, in

rules, justice is forgotten, and corruption
is likely to teign. Men, not measures,

ciples by waich it itigns. By -all extre -agant
rejoicinis, party spirit is increased :
they are dictated only by the spirit of pni
ty : they increase t ho excitement which
the friends of virtue and good order v ih
to have allayed. The next s'op to the
firing of guns, will be the hu::z; s of rra.-f.s
