mar be easily put into it both for the sake
of increasing the heap by these valuable
additions; and that they may act likewise
as absorbenti to gather and fix all the li
quid manures. It should bit high enough
to receive a wagon or cart for the purpose
of loading ; and it should be completely
enclosed that the contents may be secure1
from the so n,i and ram and air, The
proper site for a barn is on a side hill,
where the bottom of the cellar may on
one aide be oa a level with the surface of
the ground ; anJ where three sides being
formed by an excavation into the side hill
may be well stoned ; and the fourth side
protected by movable wooden doors, it
should be likewise a place for housing a
certain number, of store swine, who are
to be employed in turning, dissolving and
enriching the contents of the cellar. Such
is what a barn cellar bught to be, There
are few situations, where such a cellar
cannot be formed. We have seen many
such cellars, and are happy in perceiving
that they, are fast coming into use ; and
that, in regaVd to barns -recently erected
or in the process of erection, a valuable
barn is now seldom built without such
provision The cost of such a cellar will
in anysituation be fully paid for in a short
time by. the. increased quantity and in
creased value of the manure. We often
hear farmers say they would have a barn
cellar if. they could afford it. Now we
say that if any' roan calling himself a

This is one of the most important opera-
lions in farming ; a great deal of this work
is to be done in a short time, and in a warm
season, and it is of the greatest importance
to lighten the labor as far as possible.
We have seen some ery stout hardy men
toil and sweat al) day, and do but a small
day's work, while other men of much less
strength would cut more grass, and yet not
exert themselves o fatigue. From this it
is evident that some mowers exert twice
the srength that others do in per
forming the same work, and those who nse
the least strength usually do their work
the best, though they may not render the
field so smooth by cutting off the tops of
knolls, stumps, stones, and other impedi
ments that intrude themselves among the
thick grass. '
There are several reasons' why there is
so great a auierer.ee in sneaas scythes as
to their hanging "well, and there is so great
a difference in sc'vthes as to their cutting
with ease and holding their edge, that some
are better' worth five dollars than others are
worth brie ceit U Some men'" keep their
scythes in prime border, and in mowing
they lay their strength but to the' best ad
vantage ; . tHey use a gentle motion that
will not fatigu? ; they are Jlesg liable to
strike stones, &cv, than, those who? make
greater exertions, and when they do strike
them, less injury is done. , '
The best scythes should bev xhoseni as
the difference in wice - betvfeen a very
good one and one that is good for nothing,
is i mere trifle : 'Indeed the f expense' cf a
good scythe ia less than its value Above

Use of Lime is New-Hampshire.
One of the shakers recently told me, thev
had been in the habit of buying the best
Thomaston Lime, which with ansporta
tions cost them at leas; inree aowars a
cask: of breaking and slacking it and
miring it with mud collected from bog-
..... 0 , . . . r
holes or turfs from the sides or the high
ways, in proportion of Jour or five cask
to an hundred common ox loads ; and af
ter the fermentation and mixture, they
have found this composition not less valu
able than an equal quantity of the best of
stable manure. If the above remarks are
correct, and no doubt they are, as I find
them corroborated by various writers on
this subject, it is an easy and cheap meth
od of obtaining manure, and well adapted
for top dressing.
The Hon. John Wells of Boston, who
has made several experiments with lime
in the preparation of compost manuTe for
a top dressing, recommends that it be pre
pared by first placing a layer of mud or
loam as the case may be then a layer of
unslacked lime, and so continue until the
materials are used up; and in twelve or
fourteen days, shovel it over and it will be
fit foi use. From what 1 am able to gath
er fiom this gentleman's experiments, he
made use of lime in proportion of about
one cask of Thomatton lime to five loads
of loam or mud, and that he annually, for
more than twenty years, made use of lime.
for agricultural Durnoses to the extent of
more than one hundred casks. He further
says "To my surprise 1 found the effect
produced to be equal to what is usual from
common compost manure." Lime as a
top dressing on a wheat crop is undoubt
edly valuable on many kinds of soil, espe
cially where there is a deficiency of calca
reous matter.
Beni. Cutter, Esq. informs me that he
has made use of lime at the rate of twenty
bushels or more to the acre, as a top dress
ing, by sowing it on in a fine pulverized
state, when the wheat wis a few inches
high, and considered himself well remu
nerated in the vheatcrop. The Hon. Le
vi Fisk observed to me, that he used two
teirces of Thomaston lime last spring by
sowing it on nearly two acres of wheat.
leaving a small piece in the same held un
sown, and is confident he realized twenty-
five per cent, more wheat in consequence
of the lime. The above and other similar
experiments, are conclusive ebidence in
my mind, of the importance and value o
lime is a manure. Conanfs Address.

The Reward of Industry. The
now Right Hon. Sir John Cowan, Bart.,
and nrpspnt T,nrd Mavor of the city of
London, came to town m the humhie ca
pacity of an errand boy, and was employ
ed in a wax-chandler's shop, which stood
nearly opposite the present site of the
Mansion house. The drudgery which
the duties of this office imposed, were
performed by him, day after day without
a murmur, and each tasic set nun oy u
employer was executed in such a manner
as quickly to gain him tne estetm ana
friendship of all w.io knew him. A lew
years rolled bv, and he was promoted to
the situation of shopman, when his un-
a .
surpassed industry, and the strictest in
tegrity, again procured him the confi
dence and attachment of his master. A-
bout this time it was his good fortune to
win the affections of his master's daugh
ter (the present Lady Mayoress,) and their
marriage taking Dlace soon after, witbj
the consent of her parent, he was further
elevated to the distinguished post of part
ner in the firm. Here he remained till
his partner's death, which occurred some
time afterwards, and the entire business
then devolved upon him . A succession
of years, during which his previous good
qualities characterised him in an eminent
degree, brought with them wealth, opu
lence, and power, and from that time up
to the present he has continued his ca
reer, in a manner alike worthy of him
self and the city of which he is the dis
tinguished representative.
Distinction between Poverty
and Pauperism. " It is of the utmost
importance accurately to distinguish be
tween poverty and pauperism; fur by
confounding them, poverty is dishonored,
and pauperism is countenanced, bupply
poverty with the means and it vanishes,
out pauperism is the more confirmed.
Poverty is a sound empty vessel, but pau
perism is not only empty but cracked.
Poverty is a natural appetite merely want
ing food : pauperism a ravenous disease
which no food cans itisfy. Poverty strives
to cure itself, pauperism always paraly
ses. Poverty is sincere, pauperism is an
arch-hypocrite. Poverty has naturally a
proud spirit, pauperism a base one, now
cringing, now insolent. Poverty is silent
and retiring, pauperism is clamorous and
importunate; the one is grateful, the oth
er the reverse. There is much that is
lovely in poverty, but pauperism is alto-o-pihpr
hateful. It is deli.crhlful to relieve
o . o
the one; irksome to be taxed for the oth
er. Poverty has the blessing of heaven,
as well as those that relieve it: pauper
ism on the contrary, h is nothing in com
mon but is the reverse of the christian
virtues. The injunctions of the gospel
are in favor of poverty, but wholly in op
position to the spirit cf pauperism, and
the merit of those individuals who tho't
lessly succor it, may be estimated accord
ingly." Walkei, in Farmar's Mag.
How common it is to see people who
set their faces as a flint against the use of

portray the evils of drunkenness ia the
most glowing colors, aud hale its victims

Moral Effects of Marriages.
The statistics of the Eastern Penitentiary
of Pennsylvania, are curious in the great
inequality, which they exhibit, between
married ani unmarried convicts. Of the
one hundred and sixty prisoners, received
the last year, one hundred and ten were
unmarried, six were widowers, and forty
five only were married. 1 have never
seen a stronger illustration of the moral
influence of marriage. It is too late to
eulogize the marriage institution, after the
world's experience of its ameliorating in
fluence upon the human condition, for
si thousand years. But we may take
this instance, as an evidence of its effects,
in promoting good habits, morality and
virtue amongst the lower classes of soci
ety. Atlas.-
