A SKETCH FROM REAL LIFE
iiV JAJtra ur.Ks.
It was a tempestuous night, tho wind
whistled fearfully, and hailstones whoso
size llneaieiiul to demolish the windows,
rattled against tlum with n poitinacity ns if
to test their strength. In tho parlor of a
fine old fashioned house, besido n i other
comfortless firo on such n night, wero seated
the family of Mr. Southcrlnnd, consisting
of himself, wife, djughtcr, nnd a faithful
maiil servant, a heavy gloom more of sor
row than of anger, rested on cneh brow, not
even excepting that of the maid servant al
luded to,from whose eager glances eve rand
nnon cast towards tho family group, the
closa observer would have noted the deep
inlerest sho took in the cause of their grief.
Tho picture wns a melancholy one, for
virtue in distress has no light shade, to re
lievo it ; all around and about it is dark and
sombre. Tho sensativc nrtist would have
thrown aside his pencil, if tho subject had
been presented to his view as wo havo to
describe it, nnd his heart would have receiv
ed an impression which ho could not have
transferred to canvass.
'To-morrow,' observed Mr. Sunderland,
'is the anniversary of the melancholy death
of ourdcar Henry to-morrow will be ten
years sin-e tho vessel in which ho sailed
wns lost, and all on board perished all,
nil.'
'Alas,' exclaimed his wife, ns tho tears
coursed their way down hor cheeks, 'to
morrow will bo ri melancholy day.'
'Indeed it will, for to-morrow this house

but thank Providence, misfortune not crime
has reduced us to this stage of poverty.
'Will they sell everything, can we se

'No my child unless with what little mon

ford silenced tho anxious parents, nnd the
family piece of fnrnituro wns knocked down
to the new owner of tho house. A gentleman
that stood by remarked that the act wns
a cold heartless one. 'Was it? sarcastically
nsked Mr. Clifford, 'then sir, why did you
not buy it for him ?'
Mr 'dirwlnrlnnil u-n! miir.li nfieeteii nt
this little incident. 'He little knows how a light haired boy whom you cnllcd
much ho has laccrntcd this henrt. But 1 1
will purchase the the piano for my child.'
He stepped up to Mr. Clifford, and told him
the desiro ho had to purchase tho piano for
his daughter and ho hoped he would not bid
against him.
'Sir,1 said the stranger, 'I will not deceire
you ns much as I respect your feelings,
and the sympathy of this good company; I
cannot, nay, will not auer trie ueiennum

'And pray sir, what may it bo ?'

"Por.Titv of Life." When tho cele
brated Dr. Samuel Johnson was nsked why
so many literary men were infidels, his re
ply was, because they are ignorant of the
Bible. If tho question be nsked why the
lovers of general reading so often fail to ac
quaint themselves with tho sacred volume,
one rcison that may he assigned doubtless
is, they nro not aware of its interesting ran
tly. This feature ofthe Bible is well illus
trated by Mrs. Ellis, in the following elo
quent extract from her recent work, entitled
tho Potlry of Life. Jour. Com.

The principle is tho same prccijcly as renched full bloom. We know thcro has
tho eloctnc or galvanic machine. Many of
out readers have surrounded tho machtno in
tho museums, each holding on to Ilia chain,
and each receiving a portion oftho shock (ruin

pidity of lightning, may extend along the wire
thousands'of miles around iho world if ne

Colt's submatino battery is on tho samn piin
eiple. A copper retort of powder is floated
under a ship's bottom, from which a coveted
wire is appended, nnd tho powder ignited at
any distanco by galvanism. Tho turning of
tho glass plato or cylinder in an cleetric ma
chine produces electricity, which, like air or
water, seeks to establish an equilibrium. The
invcnlion of the galvanic battery by the Im
mersion of different metallic, plates in acid
produces eleetiicity as by frit-lion, and this
is the simple and rapid agent of communica
tion! One ofthe connecting ulrcn Is always
immersed in a cup of mercury, into which
other wire is dipped whenever a stroain of
dtcciricity is to bo sent along the cniiro line.
The agency is perfectly understood, hut iho
method of uniting or abbreviating, of sending
a message uy mcro lines or dots, is a upccies
of hand-wriiiug novel in application and in

Dnnby Corners, Juno 17, 1811.
Denr Sir, A terrible calamity visited
our quiet village yesterday, Sunday, nt one
o'clock, P. M. I stood by "my office window,
when suddenly tho building shook as with
an earthquake; on looking in tho direc
tion of Mr. Seneca Smith's old Store, about
cirrht rods distant, tho air was filled with
smoke, flames, boards, and shingles. As
snnn ns the smoke cleared nw.iy, tho first
object I saw was a srr.all boy crawling out
from under tho timbers, his clothes on fire
I at once concluded the boys hud set fire to
Mr. Smith's powder magazine which he
kent in his old store. I immediately went
to the ruins, where I witnessed a scene that
beggars description; mothers wringing their
hands, nnd in tears enquiring for their chil
dren .' On moving the rubbish wc found two
other bovs. They wero tho sons of Nathan
J. Smith", David Lane nnd Yaniah Brown,
their ages running from six to ten years.
They wercso disfiguied that wo could not
recognize them except by their clothes,
which were on lire I 1 lie first boy I saw
was Mr. Lane's. Ho extricated himself,
and on running a few rods met his father,

heretofore been somo diffi-renco of onitlloll
nsto tho Jtngn grata should be in whin it is
cut, hut wo believo iho experience of tho
best farmers is in ngrcement with the poti
lion above assumed. Thoso who are In
the hnbit of curing herbs, cut them when
in this stage, hecnliso it is known that they
contain nt that time the most of that peculiar
principle from which they derive their ef
fioacy and value. The sacharino or sugnr
principle; which constitutes one oftho chief
sources of nutrument in herbago, is found
In tho greatest qtinntity nl the period of
bloom. 1. sometimes becomes expedient to
cut grass heforo it hns reached this stalo ;
particular when it falls down, nnd is in
dnngcr of souring or rotting. When this
happens, it should bo cut, whatever stato it
mny bo in, because if it rcmnin on tho
ground it will spoil, nnd tho fermentation
which lakes place, will destroy tho roots.
Another great advantago in cutting grass
before tho seed forms, is that tho roots nro
not so much cxhanstcil,nnd the after growth
is much morn vigorous,
In some parts oftho country, it is iho
prnclicn to mow the grass nnd let it lio un
touched on the ground, 'thro' sunshino nnd
shower,' (or several days beforo it is stacked
or put in the b:Ul). It isqulta common to
begin Monday nn.l coulinuo to mow till
Saturday, when with hand-rakes and horse
rakes, nil turn in, take it up nnd stack it
and this dono too, without much regard to
tho state of the weather ut tho timo it is
raked, or to what it may havo been after it
wns Cut. Tho nppcaranco of tho nnimals
which nrc fed on hay thus managed, is evi
dence enough of its worth lessncss.
After gruFs is cut and partly dried, it
ought never to be exposed to wet or dew.
The best way is to spread out tho mown
grass evenly, ns soon as tlio wet hasji
lifted off from ho spaces between tho
swathes, anil beforo the evening, rnko it and
put it in cock. Where tlio crop is henvy,
considerable timo will bo gained in making,
by tl is plan. If it is Only wilted when it
is put in cock, jl will in a short timo under
go a siccat, which will much faciliato its
making when it is again opened lo the sun.
Many good fjrmors believe that it will
make moro in cock twelve liourj, tlnn
will make in threo days without being put
in Cock.
