From Juveiiib Scrap BookS
Tell us then child of sweetness,
What are young thoughts to thee?
Are they not in ilicir fleelncss,
Like sunbeams on the lea 2
Are they not Tike the flowers.
Thou gatherest in thy play,
Where the sparkling fountain pours
Its melody all day!
Are they not like the "blending,
Of odor and of bloom,
When Spring's young buds arc sending
Abroad their soft perfume!
Arc they not like the shadows
Oi clouds that quickly go,
Across the purple meadows
When southern breezes blow !
Tell us, thou gladsome rover, ,
UnweaTieS rail day long,
Like the bee with beds of clover,
The blackbird with its song,
, The lamb so lightly bounding,
Tbe butterfly so gay,
What fairy lute is souEding,
The music to thy play.
Whatfind'st thou, child of gladness,
'Mid those young thoughts of thine,
That-scarce or.e tear of sadness
In thy soft eyes can shine2
Hast ftiou some hoarded treasure,
Or deeper mine of gold.
Or secret stores of pleasure,
To mortal ear untold.
Tcs, to thy check is swelling
The rosy tide of Youth,
Its smile of radiance telling
Thy secret ard its lrr.th;
For gloomy fate can never
Thine after-life pervade,
If hra seest the sunshine ever,
Nor murmurest at the shade.
ExtraC from Prof. Kirllamr Address.
Art had also heard from lime immemo
rial, the saving. -"Tlml the tale snores

for the poor
an old wive's
the enliung etfatt of those vernal snows
on the fresh starting vegetation.
Science has shown that at the Ureakir.? j
up of Winter the immense accumulations
of enriching gases are set Ircc by the
warmth of Spring, ascend to the clouds,
combine with their moisture, which at
that season often congeals and falls 1j
earth in form of snow, ciiarged with those
enriching materials. Plaster will, as it
were scizeu upon an anchor tliem lor tne

Art pertinaciorifily exclaims, . We

-lay soils, without deriving the least
Science tauntingly replies, "You-might
. as well give a drowning man,sunk twenty
. feet tsnrter water, a dose of medicine with
i the expeelion of resuscitating him, as to
apply Plaster to wet clay lands before
they" have been properly prepared by
. draining and sub-sail plowing.
First, extricate the drowning man from
the water, get him warm and drythen
If a spark of vitality remains, -admiuister
your cordial vneificincs, and the latent

clay lands; cut blind ditches at suitable
distances andjn proper directions, lay on
lhera brush or flat stones, or what is far
preferable, manulacture tiles from the'
clay into proper forms and they will be

Having drained your fields thoroughly,

quarts of Cioverseed with as many cf

of Plaster to the acre, and roll down the

The next season mow the first erop f
clover if you please; pasturing with
swine is better economy however; and
the second seasou pasture sparingly, and
in the month of August turn in -a heavy
crop of clover by the aid of Kincaid's
improved patent plow, if you have no
batter article. It is the best we have seen.
Upon this clover-lay, or sod, sow your
wheat; drag and roll it in; follow the
next Spring with the same routine of
clover and plaster. Your subsequent

Science would, however direct the
farmer how to save and multiply enrich
ing products from the sink, the slops and
refuse matters from the house, and yards
stable and poultry roosts. Time and
place will not permit us to particularize
on these heads. It is sufficient to say,
with the addition of these enriching com
pounds, to the course suggested, the cold
flat clay lands that Art has exhausted,
and knows not how to replenish, can be
converted into some of the best wheat and
cora land the State of Ohio furnishes.
Science . would also direct the same
principles in regard to blind ditches and
subsoil plowing, or deep trenehing, as
applicable to the preparation of gardens
and fruit yard soils of the quality just de
scribed. Every garden of this quality
should be surrounded with a blind ditch
from two to three feet deep, laid with
hrusli. stone or tile, and covered with
earth, and should be traversed by similar
ditches running parallel to each other tw o
The surface should next be . broken
eighteen inches deep, and be enriched
with abundant supplies of the Featy com
post previonsly described; and Plaster
with Poudrcttc should be employed as a
top dressing to the hills of the various
plants cultivated. Thus managed, yosr
gardens and fruit yards in clay lands
would vie with the best the world af
If you are not disposed to put full cre
dence in the suggestions of Science, test
their correctcess on a limited scale, dig
a ditch, throuirh some of your wet and
drowned lands. Upon the embiiwment
try a patch of wheat, clover and plaster.
Try other patches of garden vegetables,
cucumbers, melons,&c. dressed with pou-
drette and piaster. Tiie result of your
trials in this way will' convince you mat
-file principle may be equally well appli
ed to a fueld or a whole farm. It is not
an hypothesis. It is not a matter yet to
,c tested by experiment. It has been
fully tried, both in tins country and m Lai
rope. In extensire districts in Scotland where
twenty-five years since, the population
could scarcely raise oatmeal enough for
sustenance scientific farming has chang
ed the entire character of the soil by the
introduction of ditching sub-soil plowing,
clover and plaster, to such an extent that
they arc now large exporters of wheat.
We dwell at some length wpon this
fact, for we believe that the mode Sci
ence suirgests, will before, the close of a-
y.otker generation, change the staple of
Y estcm Reserve from the product oi the
dairy, to that of the wheat field. Wes.

sisted in recommending asses' milk as a
certain cure. The bard, tired of his im

"And, Doctor, do you really think
That asses'niilk I ought to drink!
'Twould quite remove my cough,
And drive my old complaint away.

But then 'i was mother's milk to you."
