I V! -? ? | f'? I ?rmma VOL. X. WASHINGTON, D. C., MONDAY, JULY 27, 1&57. NO. 1,410. THE CULTIVATION OF A GARDEN. Every man. rich or poor, in town or country, should cultivate some piece of ground, noiaatter how small. anil have something either useful or beautiful growing in it. if it be within the scope of possibility. No man. woman or child, should esteem it a sufficient plea that they do not know how Let them get one of Landreth's Almanacs, or Preer's list of garden plants, and try exper iments. Tliey will soon learn. Let none say they cannot take an interest in such matters, or that they have no time. An interest will speed ily arise with a little experience, and then the time will be found, aod it will re-invigorate many a warm frame imd many a wordly and o.ire-corrodod heart, with the freshness of "a sec ond youth, and the vigor of an early spring. In a city like this, there is many a man whose head M turning prematurely gray with care and business, and who feels, nlas' that his heart is becoming gray and blase. even faster than his head, who would feel all his powers bloom again, and his sensibilities refreshed by a little gar dening as by nothing else. The wealthy, of course, all cultivate their gardens in one sense: that is, they have their gardeners, who do it for thein, and they walk around with their friends on a Sabbath after-" noon, perhaps, and criticise and admire, and order a fresh lot of flowers from Landreth at tho request of their wives, only grumbling a little, possibly, as they f??ot the bill, the items of which have no interest for them. l'erhafs nine gentlemen out of ten who do this, have no real ten-c of the delight which many a poor family take in some of the simplest flowerf , merely because they have themselves watchcu and cultivated them. Every one will find the personal cultivation of the earth a *>nree of daily and increasing interest, whether on a larger or smaller scale. f?r ornament or f??r use. according to his means, his technical knowledge, and his other opportunities. The rich and the poor will find this one of tho roost improving, profitable and pleasant of all recreations, whatever their daily employment. If it be but a little creoS seed or a few vi Jet grown in a box of earth outside a garret win d w, it will ?hed a fragranco that will hurnan ue and refine all who 1 wlge within ?>ne of the ' hiet advantages of the garden is, that it will offer recreations of such an infinite variety, that, no matter what may a man s humor, or how tired he may be of other things, ho can 'till find something usef ul to do for it that will be pleasant at tho time, and yield its fruit after many days All the family, too, can unite iu the lal?or and enjoyment of the garden, as in no oth^r recreation, from the littfe child to the grandparent It will attach the poor man to h's home, and will save his more wealthy neighbor ten times more than it co.-;ts, every year, as a substitute for expensive journeys to costly watering places, where nothing is to be f ?und but the dissipations and fatigues of the city, transported at vast expense into tho coun try How much more advantageous to transport the beauties and benefits of the country into one's own premises. A garden creates a taste for simple pleasures. Tho.>e flowers and trees that may or may not interest the pissing stranger, will always be looked upon with interest and affection by the eye of hiin who planted them with his own hand. This love of natural beauties is the best antag ? mist to the love of artificial stimulating ami cx p nsive excitements "Consider the liTlies how they grow,'' said the wisest and the holiest, while aiming to producc simplicity alike of faith and of tasth?"they toil not. neither do they spin vet Solomon in all his glory was not arrayed like one of these." One great source of pleasure in a garden is that it subsidizes the forces of all nature.? These work for the man who works for thein, and that, too, while he sleeps and cats and is otherwise engaged. All the increase is clear gain to hum;iu happiness. No one is made poorer by what is thus gained, but tho whole world is so much the better and happier. Nothing teaches patience like a garden. All have to wait fo? tho fruits of tho earth. You may go round and watch the openiug bud from <|ay to day. but it takes its own time, and you cannot urge it on faster than it will. If forced, it is only torn to pieces. All the best results ot a garden, liko those of life, aro slowly pro fjrcssivc. Each year does a work that nothing >ut a year can do. " Lsarn to labor and to wait. ' is one of the best lessons of a garden All that is good takes time, and comes only by growth. Hence, a garden attaches a man penninently to his home. It is a kind of sheet anchor, that ties a man fast to a place he has once improved by a thousand little riots and tendrils, numer ous as those of the trees he has planted. And this is one of its most valuable properties. A rolling stone gathers no moss. and we Ameri enns are too ready to pull up stakes, and sell our brick and mortar, our furniture, and our land, that we may move to the ends of the earth ? >n the vaguest rumors of slight advantages, lhou^and- thus go the West to dio disappointed or to return impoverished, who inignt have steadily pro.-|>ered, had they only keen content with their own .State We want more ties to bind us fait in the.^e days of steamboats and railroad? When fiullivcr went to Lilliput, ho awoke and found that the tiny inhabitants had driven stakes into :he earth, and made them fast to the separate hair* of his head, so that, while he could lie still pleasantly enough, let him but attempt to move, and it was at the expense of a thousand little pains, each in itself surmounta ble. but the wholo together forming a strong premium upon remaining quiet. Every plant and tree and flower of a garden kept and culti \ated by one * own hand liecomes such a tie to one quiet spot around your own dwelling ?

A PARIS D1SXER. (From the correspondence of theN. Y.Tribune ] We dined Inst week with a French Countes3 Your American imagination may, perhaps, fancy lavish display anil abundant waste ; but no?the house was small, though arranged and furnished with the most elegant taste. The lady would not have been a true French woman had she expended money in nseless superflui ties. The dinner, which was quite perfect in a certain way. might be characterized in a like manner, there was not too much of anything, and yet a plenty. Abundance did not appear so much as tasteful and beautiful arrangement. Surpassingly delicate, too, were the sauces. For instance, after many dishes, there was served a roast turkey, which I supposed was liko all other roast turkeys?very good ; but I was surprised upon adding the sancc to a good nutritious bit of the breast. I discovered a new and unexpected flavor?something that I did not rcuicml>er to have tatted at an Ameri can table. To begin. I shall give you the order and names of the courses, thinking that it may help some young housckoepcr giving her first dinner party : There were only ten at table, which was oval, and the hostess sitting at tho middle of nnf side. The centre ornament was? n??t an expensive silver epergne, as you might have seen on some more extravagant table?but a large pyramid of beautiful camelias. roses and violet*, buried in their fresh-looking green moss, with here and there peeping out a little pot of ripe strawber ries?for it was February, and they were then a rarity?the whole rising from a low, brown wicker basket. The china?that is; the plates, for no dishes were placed on tho table, as the waiters, who numbered only two, banded every dish, it being first well carved on a side table? tlio china was admirable for solidity and beauty; the color was dark blue and gold. Tho glasses wero four to each person; and one in particular, of fine and slender shape, was ex quisitely ornamented with a garland of loaves and grapes; this, I observed, was kept for the best wine After the soup, which had rico in it. and was flavored with tomato, there was placed on tho table opposite the hostess a large silver salver.covered with a damask nnpkin, on which lay a 3plendid turbot entire, so large that it covered the silver to the edge. It l?K>ked so enormous that I thought of a small whale. All thoughts, however, of such coarse and oily crea tures vanishod at once. when, on helping my self to a piece of this fine white-looking fish meat, and adding the sauce, which was creamy and a little acid, tho dclicious turbot melted in the mouth. Then came pungent radishes, which are a French appetizer, and cold spiced sausago cut in slices; and good red wine was served to all. After small rich oyster pates, was served the filet of beef, with mushroom sauce, accom panied by simple potatoes. Then lamb chops, dressed with bread crumbs, and accompanied by boiled green peas. Next, roast turkey, with the above-mentioned extraordinary sauce, and a dish of sweet bread of veal cooked in a simple but most satisfying manner; and finally lcttucc dressed only with oil and vinegar, and a littlo parsley cut up fine. With each different course, of course, a different wine was brought, chain Kagne being the dessert, which was only the est and most delicate ice cream ; then fruits, both fresh and candied, and great sugared chestnuts, which are a favorite French bon-bon. Finally, black coffee, served in cups and sau <;<?rs each different in style and pattern. And, liter the liqueurs and sweet cordials, wo all. >>oth ladies and gentlemen, left the table and wint 'o the drawing-room. I thought, as we came home, I never fancied a dinner could be so complete ; yet with nothing very expensive, nothing showy or elaborate; yet every dish was finished, and the whole artistically perfect. A DnuAnFCL Tale of a Skirt ?Dearly and devotedly did the learned and popular I)r. Fiiegenblade, of Dresden, love his wife. In his eyes, no step 60 light, no check so pure, no eyes so radiant as hers. In the eyes of all the hab itues of the promenade of Dresden, no carriage so graceful, no taste so exqusite, no skirt so am ple. Broad, however, as was the expanded tlouncc of Madame Fiiegenblade, the fond bus band determined to appeal to his art in chem istry to make her tho subject of a hopoless and unattainable envy. Directing her. one day. before going out to expel from her skirts the air with which her faithful maid had just been fill ing them, he infused within a tubtlo vapor, which not only spread them twenty-five percent beyond their ordinary circle, but which by their upward pressure npon whalebone rods that uni ted at her waist lifted her gently from the pave ment. and but for a loaded satchel which he obliged her to carry in her hand, and a heavy metal belt, would have raised her light brown gaiters, and the littlefeet inside of them, entire ly from the ground. Madame Fiiegenblade was indeed, the envy of all the fair damsels and ?lames of Dresden ; and many a beauty went peevishly to bod. alter vain endeavors to rival the .>mooth amplitude of her silken fence. Despite of nil this envy, however, placidly Madame Fiiegenblade went daily forth, relying trustfully upon her loaded belt, and holding faithfully upon her heavy bag. But, alas! who can foresee every danger? In an unlucky moment. Madame Fiiegenblade was seized with a sudden faiutness, while walking along a fa vorite promenade, in the environs of the town She was borno into a store, her sttchel was placed upon the counter, and tho kind ladies who surrounded her made haste to relieve her of her belt. Still, she remained inanimate, whereupon they bore her into tho open air. and sitting her upon a chair. st<?>d wido apart to f;ive her an opportunity to respire. When, lo ' iting itself from the chair, the mass of silk gradually rose, and, before the spectators could recover from their surprise, it was beyond their reach Slowly it pursued its upward way. the ill-fated lady reposing in the centre of the rising cloud of lawn, a* peacefully as Elijah submitted to his translation The distracted chemist ar rived upon the ground just in time to see her disappear entirely from sight. There may now be seen, daily, on that spot, in Dresden, exactly at tho hour of 5 in the afternoon, a strange, moody looking man, who. with rapt look, and vacant stare, gases at the heavens for an hour, as if he expected his lost darling to return; and then, folding his arms with a heavy sigh, he stalks sorrowfully home. It is useless for us to speculate upon the proba ble fato of Madame Fiiegenblade. Her husband is expecting her every day to drop from tho clouds into nis arms, where be lost her; but we learn that Leverrier, the great astronomer at Paris, has computed her descent to be duo in 271 days, hours and 22 minutes; and that in stead of settling at Dresden, she will drop in the Canary Inlands.
