After a ride of two liundrcd miles through uninterrupted snow-banks, one is rather surprised to find himself prom enading dry ilags and cobblo-stones in New York. The city is innocent of snow, yet the waatber we have here is de-spiriting enough: rainy, foggy, true London weath er. The sun has forsaken us, for the ieu.1 of w ar, or some other center of inter est. Coining from sheerful firesides ol Yankeedom, where mils' are cracked, and apples eatm, one is struck by the care worn; anxious expressions which sila on all the "old fami iar faces," from tho Wall street banker to the Fullon ferry apple woman. The countences of buisness men lire "signs of the times," betokeing bankruptcy, famine, and till such direful visions. Therefore tho city is doleful .ho' Fashion spreads hor peacock tail not less superbly than of old. Aininj the poor there is, and will be though tho win ter, a great deal of suffersng. It is dif ficult to obtain employment und imny are , brown out of occupation by the reverses of employers. The benevolent societies of this and the adjoining cities are laboring faithfully to improve the condition of the various classes of poor whom they have taken in charge. The Female Employ ment Sociely, of U ooklyn, is affording ,h means of supporl to many indigent seninslresses, by enabling theinto dispo se of their work at remuneiativo ju ices. One would think fro n the dolorous out cry, that we w tie u'l in danger of star, vuiion. Kvery body is frightened. But while fishies swim tho water u 1 caltl walk the land, the great nun of tha mel rophcli ihi.ll le filled. LISS0X3 CT 7HSE PAST EZAEOS. We are much mis'.sken if ih wheat ... . j ...i. mnttre or weevil noes noi uo m omc suj slantul good. Crops of wheat which have been put in early and in the best manner, land not injured by previous mismanagement, have been but slightly affected. An energetic fanner of our ac quaintance prepared his land last year, by first turning over deeply a good clover aod then giving, this a good coat of com post in.uure then harrowing the interl e I sod and compost into complete inter mixture and pulverization then turning the whole under with the gang-plow just deep enough for the roots of the young wheat which was put in with a drill in the best manner. The whole of this was accomplished by the first day of au'um-.. Oilier crops on the same farm, after cam, were also well put in, but necessarily i .... 1 i,. I.,.j ft, i'ir:tl !e some week later, aim j. soil. Now mark the result. The fust named crop yielded the present, season of drought and insects, not less ihan thirty bushels eflhc finest wheat per acre the other was only ten bushels per acre. Others crops in the same neighborhood, .own riter corn with only ordinary care and ti.litge, produced but five bushels per acre. Iu one instance, when two fisdd were sown fide by side, on similar I.nd, al tho s-.me lime, but with one of their thoroughly tilled with an especial view to the destruction of "June grass," the lat ter yield! nineteen bu.lv.ls per ucre, tha former only ten. Lxamples may be mul tiplied to degree, showing the great pro- fus of the best modes of tillage for secur ity against these depredators. The present year of extraordinary drought has furnished some interesting lessons on the diffctence between the ef fects of good end bad management. The potato crop, for example, has saried live hundred per cent wilh the treatment u Dow, in a sermon delivered nt George town Ht long before his death : " My humble hearers,"' said Lorenzo, "I have preached in Kurope, in Asia, in Africa, and in Ameriea. 1 have preached to George III., I have preached to George (aiming, but: believe me, I never preached bllcr sermon to thitu than I h:ive tins v ureached to vou. I would not flatter .- i Neptune for bis trident. I would not compromise the; cause of my IIe..vcnly Kin? for all the smiles that earthly royalty could confer. I told them precisely what 1 tell you unlets yon repent o" your sins, eternal damnation is sore." Mr. Ilersey can apply to himself a portion, ul least, of the historical parlot this p.:ss.'.ge. He has preached in three quarters of the globe, and perhaps in the fourth al.o. an cxpei imr at which we some lime since perfonncd to the Htiiazenicnt of many.

The Irishman ' ho dug our ciop sai l he was quite as woU rewarded for his labor in taking oua bushel in ten, as in IbkiiiK the whole of his own scanty pro duct. The oats crop is another which has exhibited in u striking light, the udvanta gel of being up to tho time. Crops which were sown closely tfler the disappearance of frost, have afforded a fir return; while some which we had ocction to notice that IS KSLIClOl BEAUTIFUL. Always! In Ihe child, the maiden, the wife, the mother, religion shines wilh a holy, benignant beauty of its own, which no'hing of earth can mar. Never yet was the female character perfect without the study fai.h of piety. Buauty, intellect, and wealth they ore like pit-falls, dark in the brightest day, unless the divine light, unless religion throws her soft teams around them, to purify and exalt, making twice glorious that which seemed all love liness before. Religion is very beautiful in health or sickness, iu wealth or poverty. We nev er enter the sick chamber of the good, but soft music seems to float on the air. and the burden ef their song is : "Lo! peace is here." Could we look into thousands of fam ilies to-day, when discontent fights sul lenly widi life, we should find the chief cause of uuhappiness, want of religion iu weinan. And in the felon's cells in places of crime, misery, destitution, ignoble we should behold in all its most terrible de- mitv, the fruit of irrc'.igion in woman. Oh, i.!';.'ou! benignant in;jesly, high on thy throne thou sittesl, glorious i.iu eddied.

This cement gets as hard us any stone in ic course of a few weeks. The lead forms a kind of a flux wiih ihe sand; it is excellent far filling up cracks in exposed parts of brick buildings; it is also a good ccrtent for pointing chimneys, where they project through ihe roofs of shingled hous- s. We have Made this cement and tried it, and speak about il from experience only. for we have no knowledge of its ever liv ing been described in any work. Life illustrated. Love. ILw bright and beautiful is love' in i s hour of purity and iunocenco how mysteriously it etherealizes every feeling, and concentrates every wild be wildering impulse of the heart; Love holy nd mysterious love! it is the jrar laud spring of life, the poetry of nature. Its song is heard in the rude hut of the poor, as well as of the gorgeous princes of the rich its flames embellish the soli tude of the forest, and the thronged haunts of busy life, and its lijht imparts brillim cy to every heart, nojnatler what may be its condition. Love pure and devoted love cm never c) ange. Friends my forget is the riches of this world my soon soar away, but the heart that loves will cling ihe closer; as loud roars the storm, and mid the wreck of the tempest, it will serve as u "beacon" to light us on to safe ly and happiness. Love is the music and unseen spell that soothes tho wild and rugged tendencies of human nature, that lingers about the sanc tity of the fireside, and unites iu closer union of the fafTec. ions of society, and tho soul thuL loves truly will live forever. Not lika ihe waves of the ocejm: nor trac ed in sand, is the image impressed upon a loving heart. No, no, but it will remain unbroken and unmarred it will burn un drfneed in its lustre, amid tho quick rush of the tempest cloud and when our f ato seems dark and dreary, then will love seek shelter in her own hallowed temple, and offer us a sacrifice, her vows and affections.
