'"-i RUTLAND WEEKLY. HERALD, .THURSDAY, NOVEMBER 25, 1875.
THE RUTLAND HERALD. THURSDAY.' NOVEMBER ISfoWB. REM EMBER THE POO R : r ' The coming weeks till the new year ia fully ushered In are the festival and hol iday season of the year. They are laden with thanksgiving and Jhappiness and are looked upon by the young and old as the happy days. Thanksgiving comes, with its home gatherings, when sons and daughters who have wandered away from the old homestead meet around the ' hearthstone" once more,' and for the' day become children again. . The little ones also are present ; the little grandchildren climbing into grandpa's and grandma's laps and begging for a story. The old folks enter with zest into the enjoyment of the occasion and the slow running blood quickens In their veins, as they re member how they once were children. Then there Is the bountiful board, heap ed high and groaning under the weight ofthejgood thiugs, the , pumpkin aud mince pies, and , the grand old turkey who has gobbled hia lait gobble. But we have omitted one of the pleasures of Thanksgiving day.- It is the Thanksgiv ing service. With hearts full of love and thankfulness it is to many the most joyous service of the year. Thanksgiving day passes, and the little ones, with the remembrance of its pleas ures still in their minds, look for wara to Christmas and the coming of Santa Claus. The biggest stocking is hunted up, and on Christmas eve it is hung by the fireplace, or at some point where it will be most convenient for the mysti cal present giver. The bight hours pass and In their dreams the little sleepers seem to hear the distant sleigh-bells, the natter of the reindeer's hoofs upon the roof, and they seem to see the fotm of a iollv eray bearded old fellow come backing down the chimney, puffing at the burden of presents on his back. They see him chuckle as he una up each stockinz and shakes it down to make room for more. The morning breaks and, no matter how difficult it may have been to rouse the sleepers on other mornings, on this morning they are awake with the first ray of light, and without stopping to dress they came tumbling into the room to examine their treasures. As their shouts of laughter ring through the rooms, father and mother, the real Santa Claus, feel that it is more blessed to give than to re ceive. Christmas has its other pleasures, Its happy greetings and happy meetings, and the world seems to join with the angels in rejoicing on this day that Christ was boru. And then there is New Year's Day, with its calls ami well wishes for tie new year. These seasons', with their pleas ures and merry makings, are realities to most of us, and t he memories of the past are fraught with pleasant recollec tions of thm. We have been happy and perchance have been priviledged in making others happy, but iu our enjoy ment have we always thought of those wllb were too poor to light up these hol idays. There are many to whom want and suffering are as real on Christmas as at any other season, and the day is made barker by the light which gleams out from the homes of the wealthy and U-t-ter favored. We are apt to think, that want am', eufferiug are confined to the larger cilies, but a little investigation nion. As TbauVBgVvlng day, ami Christ inas and New Yars dy approach, we would urge our readers to make their own happiness complete by seeking out and relieving the bufferings of the poor. The winter has set in earlier thau usual, and Uier-may be those to whom a ton of coal or h barrel of flour would he a Godsend. There, are little children whose Christmas would be made bright by a gift of warm clothing, or by a few of the toys with which the children of the rich are so well supplied Let us all make it a duty and a pleasure to furnish the means of enjoyment to other?, and our own happiness will be increased As we rejoice let us throw wide open the doors of the poor to the genial warmth and sunshine of generosity.

"OUR NEW YORK LETTERS How Actors Live and Die The Literary PeoDle Moody and SankeyTammany's Extrava gance Business. ' : '.' ;Nkw York, Nov. 19, 1875. " UOW ACT0K8 uva A'D PIE. , There are,- of the young men and women who read your paper, at least a thousand who have been and are crazy to get on the stage. They have heard of the wondrous costumes the actresses wear, and of the gorgeous salaries they aU draw, and they suppose that the life of a player is one unending round of pleasure. The few who do "get on the stage" find the difference between fancy and fact iu a very short time. It is the hardest, meanest, most uncer tain and wretchedly paid business in the world. Not one actor in a thousand makes more than the merest subsistence, at his best, with the certainty staring him in the face that at the end when he can act no more of dying in an alms house, or subsisting on the charity of younger ones, who are almost as poor as himself. There are those, of course, who make immense salaries. Edwin Booth, for instance, never piays for less than S500 a night, and 8othern, Charlotte Cnshmao and a doz en others command quite as much. But you can number h class on the fingers of your two bauds. These are the ex ceptions, just as Stewart and Claflin are among the merchants. The highest sal ary paid regular stock actors In New York is $ 100 per week for a seasou of nine months. Out of this sum the ac tor has to furnish his wardrobe, which, if pieces change frequently, makes a terrible hole in 1 Then he lies idle three months la the year, and what is worse for his pockets, the very nature of his employment makes frequent expen diture almost unavoidable. The most prudent end the year with nothing nine-tenths of them are always iu debt. And there is always ahead of them two ghosts lack of engagements md sick ness. Out of employment in his pro fession, there is nothing under heaven for him to do, aud sickness means star vation A noted English actar named Belmore, a man who stood first in ec centric comedy In that country, and i who was the especial pet of the "uobili- j ty and gentry" George Belmore, who ; kept all England laughing for yeari died last week iu a poor boarding house on Fourth avenue, dependent at the last on the charity of his fello w actors for the gruel'-he ate and the medicines be took.

They come to New-York this winter, and here they will do better. They will have in addition to the enormous resident population, the fifty thousand strangers who are in the hotels, who would naturally be attracted. Besides there are a heavier per cent of the peo ple here to be converted than in Brook lyn. I predict for them a great success in New York. They are zealous and hard workers, they believe in their mis sion and they know how to work. WHAT TAMMANY AND EXTRAVAGANCE HAS DONE. In addition to the enormous cost of living in the city, the people are paying $168,000,000 annually in interest and taxes. The real estate of the city is .mortgaged for $1,600,000,000, the inter est on which, at 7 per cent, foots up 152,000,000. Add to this the enormous lares that have to be paid, and the sum aggregates enormously. Tamma ny has done this for New York. It Is the most common thing in the woihl for an improvement to be ordered that costs so much as to compel the own er to put a mortgage on the property to pay it. Nine tenths of these improve ments are unnecessary, and nine-tenths of the cost goes into the pockets of the rings who run the politics of the city. I have one friend who has a lot fifteen feet wide, on an up-town street, who was compelled to pay $750 for repaying the street. The opposite fifteen feet was taxed the same, making nearly $1,500 for paving fifteen feet of a street. The actual cost of the work was prob ably $250, leaving the handsome bal ance of $ 1,250, to be divided among the thieves. And as these parties had the whole street, you can see that they made a very nice thing of it. And the . worst part of it is, that the street did not neod repaying, and that the old one was bet ter than the new one. This is only one way in which taxes are piled up there are a? many ways of swindling, as there are hairs on the swindler's heads. .Prob ably it will be some better hereafter, for the last election disturbed the rings somewhat, but at the best there will be enough of it. The ignorant and vicious vote of the city Is so large, that scoun drelly politicians have but little difficulty in getting the power to put. their hands in the pockets of the people. continues dull, and there is now uo pros pect of revival till after the holidays. The city it. discouraged, particularly when the reports of booming business comes to us from all other parts. No one can tell why it is so, but it is.

"Certainly, certainly, brother." "Oh, yes, yes ; of course I believe it," says Tom. - "Do you believe that the TEree He brew children, Shadrach, Meschech and Abednego, were cast into a furnace, heated seven times hotter than usual, and that they walked in the fiafcae prais ing the Lord, and not even their gar ments were singed !"

Fox : Sometime since we took occasion to say something about osteatation at fu nerals. The Springfield Uepublkan sys a' very sensible custom of dispensing with unnecessary expenses at funerals has lately Fprung up in that city. The .movement is among those who, if any body, ceu'd afford the usual expendi ture. On several occasions, and some of them among wealthy futilities, after the funeral tervices at the Inuse, the friends have Lem ilisn is-cd and the Initial has taken place at the convenience of the family, aud with no one else present ex cept, perhips, i he pislor. The move ment is a good one, and we believe that in time it will he widespread. The cus tom of expenRe and display at funerals reaches its height in heathen nations. Ia India the amount of respect and grief shown by the relatives of the dead Is supposed to be in proportion to the decorations ef the funeral car, or the number of hired drummers and horn blowers who accompany the body to the grave or pi re. In our own coun try respect and grief st erna to be gauged by the number of carriages which fall Into line behind the heae. It would be uncharitable to suppose that the ma jority of hose who attend funerals go from curiosity or because they have formed a morbid taste for being present at such occasion. But such, neverthe less, ia the true reason iu many cases. Such persons love to get together after wards, and, comparing notes, tell what a beautiful funeral the last one was, and if asked, they could tell you just what the mourners had on and just how they acted, down to the most minute points. If the present style of funerals is con tinued, the sacredness of true grief must often be intruded on by these profes sional funeral goers. We believe that good taste will find a correction for this as well as for other abuses. 11k. Stanley's discoveries in the heart of Africa are already stimulating missionary enterprise.

Young man or young woman, as the case may be, if you have any amplia tions for the stage, ciush them out at once. The life is one in which there are ten thousand blanks to one prize.and of the priz:s there is not ore iu a thousand that is worth having. It is an ugly, un satisfactory life at the best, and a hor rible life tor auy one who canm t get above decent mediocrity. Be a shoe maker, a tailor, a farmer, or the wife of one but never be an actor or actress. Take the advice f;f oue who knows and don't And while I am about it, I may as well say something about another class who are popularly suppoted to roll in pur ple and fine linen, but who don't, namely, THE l.ITKKAKY I'EOfl.E. As is the case with the theatrical pro fession, it is generally supposed that the writers get immense pay, and the mis take is just as imj.at Longfellow, L'w. ell, Holmes, Bret Harte and a few oth trs get large sums Mr wnat tbey pro- luce, but they make but little money, fcr they produce but little. Take ado. en or two out of the thousands who live by their pens in the cities of New York, uostou aLtl rmiaaeipuia, ana it is worse than a doe's life. The usual pay for common writers for stories, newspn tier articles and matter ot this class is from 4 to $8 a column tor such pa pers as the Timen The wriier. work as he or she may, cmnot xceed four columns a week, fi r a large part or the time is consumed in setting up the ma terial for the work And iheu, after it his been sent iu, it is au even chance that it will be declined, or, if acct pttd, that it will be cut down to a column by the managing editor, so that the two colnmus which the water wrote, and for which $16 was expected, will net the scribe only $8. A good story, it it is grooa enougn, or say six columns in length, is worth to the pub lisher f2o. Ine writer will spend on the production of such a st ry a week or two, or even more. Of course, when they get up in the world, and get so wtll known that their names will bring ad ditional subscribers to a publieaiion, they get higher prices, but this is what the few who get employment at all are compelled to submit to. Aud let it be remembered that of every thousand who submit manuscripts, not teu get a line accepted. There are to-day in New York alone two thousand men and wo men besieging editors with productions in prose and verse, who never had a line published and never will. And the few who get work to do 6tarve at it, tor the reason that there are a thousand, all equally good, trying for the place of ten. I advise your young readers to avoid the stage, and I advise them with equal fer vency to avoid literature, that ip, as a means of living. Write all you choose it is a delightful and improving recrea tion, but don't try to live by it. If you get your matter published and get a $10 check for it, thank Heaven, and spend it on a new hat, but don't depend on it as a means of livelihood. That way starvation lies. It is taking ten chances in a hundred of sleeping in a garret, eat ing at cheap restaurants, and dodging taiiors and dress makers during the term of yur natural life. MOODY AND 9ANKEY In December, 1841, writes a corres pondent to the Troy Pre, a Mr. Jacobs commenced with a soiall carpet-bag what was termed the Harndon's express between Troy and Montreal : but the business was not as remunerative as. it was wiih Harnden between Boston and New York, and after two or three trips he discontinued the business. In the spring or 14', uapt. u. irgu, of Troy, took hold of the express busi ness and went by packet to Whitehall, by steamboat to St. Johns, and by rail from there to Montreal. In the winter of 1842, he went by stage, leaving Troy at 10::.5i a. m., Monday, spendiug the first night at Oastleton, Vt., tho second at Burlington, aud arriving in Montreal, Wednesday evening, when the roads were good, but when full of drifted snow he would be trom one tothree clays late.

Des- A letter to the New York Herald, from St Loui, of the 17th says that the true story of the celebrated "light ning will strike" despatch has at last got out I he genera! belief at the time it was discovered was that it had been seut either from the treasury depart ment or the Whi e House, in order to warn the St. Louis distillers of the im pending raid. It turns out, howevr, that it was sent by Mr. Stagg, a distiller iu this city, who had been iu Washington, and it being known there that his house was dealing cerrect.ly hn was consulted at the treasury department in regard to the crooked whisky operations here, and in the course of these conversations he was informed that the crooked houses were to besiiz"d the following Monday. Upon leaving he wtmt to New York, and wishing to let his partner in St. Louis, who was iutertsted in breaking up illicit distilling, know the good news he telegraphed him, "Lightning will strike ou Monday." The following card is published this morning s The names of many Wash ington officials and parties haying been mentioned as being connected with the whisky ring through or with me in St. Louis, I desire to say that neither Gen. Babcock, Orvil Grant, Colonel Casey, Commissioner Douglas?, Colonel Holt, Colonel Luckey, or any other officials or citizens of Washington have to my knowledge, wither directly or indirectly, beeu connected in any way with the ring, with the exception of Wm. O. Avery. I make this statement iu sim ple justice to any of the parties named. C. O. Meorce. Cen. O- E. Babcock- The whiskey developments at St. Louis tend to fasten suspicion upon Gen. O. K. Babcock, the President s private secretary, and a native of this county, but before the trial is over we hone and expect to see the suspicions entirely cleared up. Unless he has been growing weak minded, the General has been no such tool as to write letters 10 any member of the whisky ring, giving assurances of protection. lnis iact alone is sufficient to lead all his acquaint ances to discredit the charge, to say nothing of the fact that they don't be- live he would enter into a dishonorable transaction. There is a good deal of force in what a gentleman who is very familiar with political appointments said to day t. "The corrupt officials had got to give some excuse to the distillers for extorting so much money ; it wa3 con venient to say that they had to pay it out to somebody in Washington; the names or uabcocK ana Avery were usea without authority taken in vain but used because they were 'so near the throne' as to lead the distillers to sup pose that they had power to protect them.

Some time about the year 18C0, Mrs jbmma iiardmge received a number of most unaccountable epistles signed "John G ," the name being given in full. The writter addressed Mrs. Har dinge in terms of enthusiastic admira tion, and referred to numerous inter views which he purported to have had witn her. Bo lull of detail were these statements that Mrs Hardinge at first oeiievea mat some designing woman must have assumed her name, while the letters naa, by mistake, been forwarded to herself. But allusions to her pic tures, dresses,and even scenes of private life known only to her immediate home circle, at length connected these myste rious documents exclusively with her self. Greatly perplexed, Mrs. Hardinge began to scrutinize the communications more closely, and soon found, to her amazement that they betrayed an inti mate knowldge of her very thoughts, no less than incidents and words of the most private nature. These letters not only followed her from place to place in her itinerant ca reer but seemed to come from one as well acquainted with her movements as her self. The darkest part of the mystery was that though the language of these epistles was refined, and occasionally el oquent, the constant allusions to inter views and conversations which were as sumed to have transpired on terms of the most eudearing intimacy, suggested the horrible suspicion that the whole was a plot concocted by unpriac'pled enemies to destroy the character of a .young girl whose reputation and osef ni nes would alike have been blighted, were these letters to reach any other hands than her own. In the deepest distress of miud, occa sioned by this inscrutable mysten', Mrs. J 11. consulted several of her friends, among them the late venerable and re spected magistrate, 3Ir. Fletcher of Do lanco, N. J., who, though unable to as sist her in his judicial capacity, advised her to collect and keep t he letters as she received them, promising her, when ever an opportunity occured, to render her all the legal assistance la his power to discover and punish her persecutor. The same answer and advice were also tendered by Mr. Newall A. Foster, late Mayer nf Pwtlaud, ia whose house as a guest, Nrs. Hardinge was residing when she received several of thee offensive missives. .Besides consulting witii these and sev eral other friends in this manner, Mr?. Hardinge pursued a course of observa tion on her own part which led tn very extraordinary conclusions. Habitually accustomed to fsce and converse with spirits, Mrs. II, "did not regard their vis itations with either surprise or fear. One exception to this complacent feel ing, however, occurred in the approach of a dark, undefined shape, who begun trtquentld to manifest his presence ot a night, and always inspire the most un mitigated feeling "of loathing and terror. Neither the form nor features of this mysterious visitant could be distinctly observed ; in fact the whole manifesta tion appeared rather J,o perception than sight, and was a preaenre rather than an apparition, Y ho or what it might be was a profound mystery. Mrs. Har dinge earnestly questioned her spirit frkmds and guides on the nature -or uhs dreadful haunting, but could obtain from them no other explanation man' itiiat it was an "eVil or undeveloped s pir- it, uver whom tney had no power. this obsession h lcaaie ineupportKble-'ftno . ii)jtixiou alike to the- health aud mental" bstlafiC.- " ' Their Unfortunate; subject eoukl always recognise th? -approach of the phantom, from her intense fce'iag (tl horror and ibis cold fblveringa which pervaded her whole frame. "Sometimes a seimticn of famtnesa accompanied this presence, which nothing- but the iu supportable drtvtd of bCGOUaiig hoc n Sclous could overcome. At last another feature of this mystery 1 jomcd up amid the darkness. The mid night visitations were the unmistakable precursors of the not les abhorred let tors above alluded to. They came so closely aud invariably in succession, and the feelings experienced in the presence of the one and the receipt of the rthrr were so exactly similar, that Mrs. II. began at last to realize that they were as intimately connected as the shadow j aud substance ot one dire system 01 per secution. Whether impelled by desper ation or inspired by her watchful spirit guardians, the affrighted medium cnuld not determine, but this is the method which she took to solve at leaet one por tion of the mystery, namely, the con nection of the phantom and her h itcd correspondent. One night after returning from a lec ture, when Mrs. Hardinge felt the luar approach of the invisible tormentor,aud notwithstanding the fact that her terror almost deprived her of the power of iuo ti n, the hastily suatched up the blue t? ilk dress which she had just taken oil, arranging the skirt around hcrnea'l in the manner of a veil. Mrs. Harding at that time was lecturing iu Cincinnati Ohio. Three days later she received one o usu 1 odious missives dated from Boston and containing these remarkable words : "How beautiful my angel looked, ar rayed in that blue veil, which she so kindly threw ever her head lat Friday night, as if in token of welcome when 1 entered her chamber. It-till another experiment was attempt ed, urged by a new horror at the shock' ing possibilities disclosed in this sen tence. JHrs. Hardinge was returning trom a lecture at a distance from town, aud was traveling in a large covered carriage with three Inends, late at night, when the party halted at a lonely inn by the wayside to water and refresh the horses Being exceedingly fatigued, Mrs. liar dinge sat still in the carriage while the rest of the party alighted. Suddenly she became aware that a man was seat ed at her side, and actually ia contact with" her. She was on the back seat, and commanded a full view of all that was going on in front. She was confi dent that no one had entered the car riage, nor would it have been possible for any one to have done so without ob servation. Yet in an instant she knew that some one was .there, and the con sciousness of this mysterious compan ion's 2 proximity was so startling and alarming that Mrs. H. was on the point of shrieking aloud, when the deathly chilliness which accompanied her" phan tom tormentor informed her of his pres ence. Almost paralyzed as she was, she re membered enough of her desperate res lution to avail herself of another oppor tunity for experiment, and snatching the hood from her head she tore a flow er from a bouquet she held in her hand, and tossed it hastily into her hair. The flower was a cape jasmine, and was seized as the first one that presented it self. Before she could recover her scat tered senses the figure was gone and her friends resumed their places in the ve- nicie. So rapidly had the whole scene passed that ere she arrived home Mrs. H. had persuaded herself that it must have been a dream, a mere fancy, a vision conjur ed up by ill health and disordered imag ination. 0 On reaching the place of her destina tion, several letters were put into her hands, one of which instantly produced the sense ot fear and loathing which an nounced her detested correspondent. On opening the letter a faded ssr of cape jasmine fell from theenve!ope,and these words caught her eye,: "To satisfy me that my visits are ap predated, I entreat you to place in your hair at eleven o'clock on Monday night next, a sprig of cape-jasmine or any white nower you can produce. The lecturer looked at her watch it was twenty minutes past eleven, Mon day night. ;The carnage must have stopped at eleven precisely. It would be needless to pursue the de tails of this painful case more closely ; we hasten, therefore, to relate its con-" summation. The time of this occurence was in the month of January, 19G1, and Mrs. II. was delivering a course of lec tures in Georgia. The day after the receipt of tlfe mis sive noticed above, Mrs. Hardinge en clo3cd it with three others from the same source in a letter from herself to the Chief of Police in Boston, in which, omitting the spiritual visitations con nected with these letters fwhich she deemed would not be understood or sus ceptible of proof), she detailed the other circumstances of their reception, and called upon the Chief, in his cfQcial capacity, to use his utmost efforts to dis cover the writer, with a view to imme diate prosecution. When her package was ready for mailing, and before she could summon messenger to despatch it, a spirit friend addressed Mrs. Hardinge, speak ing to her in the usual analytical method adopted by her invisible guides, as fol lows : "What are you going to do with vour letters? Mrs. H. -You know very well what they are, and why I send them hence. bpirit lour hre is low: the air is chill ! Will you oblige your spirit friends by mending the fire with those papers ? Mrs. II. I will not positively not. You would not aid me to solve the mvs- stery of my tormenter's presence, and now you want me to burn his letters. I refuse you, as you have ref csed me the help 1 sought.

The day after h-.r arrival she was waited on by a lady who earnestly so licited a private interview. The request granted, a highly interesting aud refined widow lady stated, in word's broken by deep emotion and fast falling tears, that herself and her mother (a!- ) a widow) bad been dependent on her only brother, who had held a most responsible situa tion, an 1 up to some sixteen months pie vious had fulfilled all his public aud private dufk'S in the ru-.st exemplary mnnner I he ai V Jirs.

It can scarcely be suppled that apy reasonable mind would decry the power or u?e of magnetism simply because it was liable to abusej in unprincipled Lands, any more than they would forbid the use of steel implements in domestic life because the murderer might employ them to de 6troy that life.

I have found a record of a corn crcr kept by a reliable citizen of this State, which contains so many valuable hints with regard to cultivation, and so many interesting calculations, that I will take the liberty of reading it as a part of my statement. The field of corn entered Lv me fcr premium containe two acres ; the soil la a black loam generally, and part of it is a mixture of gravel. The condition cf the field was poor; it was sowed down to grass in the fall of 1313 without acy manure; it has been ia gras3 ever since until September, 1372, when I had it broken up ab ten inches deep. Al low me to safthat it had better been ploughed in the epriDg following,- last before planting. The manure used on this field was a compost mala entirely between the ISih of November. 1Sj2. and the last of April, 1833, from one horse, one cow and sods takea from the above field and com nested in my bam cellar by my boa. As the bulk tf the manure was taien from the same Held to which it was returned, I shall only stimate the value of the horse and cow manure, the use of the hers for comport ing, and the carting of tbe sod3 into the celiar, as that was the only cost to rse. The comport was carted directly from the barn cellar, without turning ever about the la-.t cf April, aai saread es even over the whole field as it could well be, and immediately ploughed in. Tb' quantity spread ia this way was abc"1 sixteen cord? to Ine field, or eigbt cT-i to the acre; k w&3 then ha-To-1 furrowed both way.", thrtj t'":t -oz: inches one way end three feet -"? rtb.r.

About tbis tun '3 one of those petui. clous thecxiste who attempt to Cover the promptings of licentiousuess by the gloss of philosophy, teaching the prac tice of sensuality under the pretence of sotkiug "true affinities," (r) informed Mr. U. (as a spiritual communication of high authori'-y) that Mrs. Hardinge, the lecturer, was his spiritual affinity, and that henceforth he must dedicate his life to her. Without presuming to seek an interview with the subject ot this base less revelation, not even daring to in form her ot it in the ordinary way of correspondence, the deluded man cher ished his fantasy for some time in pri vate, until Le worked himself iuto the belief of its correctness. Then, fearing that he should be spurned w'nh indigna tion If In cipeuly urged his fancied chim, ho pvct"txr.l to consult certain mag netizers, gitd t'jrot;f:"-i tbeir promptings, used the really ecroisg powers ii clair voyance which he poss.;'i:Cd lor th pnr pose of establishing a tpirlusc! r-ofa-m union with his supposed afliuity. To promote the most favorable con ditions for these exercises the infatu ated man devoted all his time to mag netic experiments. neglected his business, put himself upoa the moit abstemious regimen, aud distiactel his sorrowing relatives by practices corresponding to those of ancient "magician-;" or modern "fakirs." Whether he succeeded iu establishing his spiritual freedom by the use of drugs, magical or magnetic practices, the nar rator could not say, but she alleged that he now began constantly to declare to , his family that he could visit the beloved ' object of his insane purpose, however distant, whenever or wherever he pleased. He frequently described to his afH'.ct ed relatives the dresses which the lady wore on tne occasion ot his terrible vis its ; also, the persons by whom she was surrounded, and the derails of her situa tion. Mrs. C. (the sister) had preserved notes of these statements, and when she submitted them to Mrs. Hardinge, the latter could no longer doubt the identit' of her brother with the Mr Q. who had so long tormented her. Not only was the name timilar, but the statements themselves proved, in all their details, to be so invariably correct that no doubt remained of the truth of the man's alle gat ions. Many convincing evidences were afforded to the family of his remarkable clairvoyant faculty, his unquestionable ability to send his spirit forth from his body, and, under favorable conditions, to exert that power at will. The effect of such practices, however, uoon his physical and uiental system were dis astrous to the last extent. He had grown so weak and debilitated that he could no longer pursue hi3 usual avoca tions, added to which his mind was fast becoming more and more unbalanced, so that confirmed lunacy might be expected to supervene as the final result. In this calamitous strait the unhappy mother and sister determined to apply to the innocent and unconscious cause of their misfortune, to solicit aid and coun sel in their difficulty ; and then it was that Jlrs. Hardinge perceived the dis grace she would have entailed on the re spectable family of her infatuated tor mentor, had she exposed him by putting his letters in the hands of the police ; also how much cause she had to rejoice that she had been withheld from heaping the additional misery of a public prosecution on the heads of the unfortunate women, who were already sufficiently over whelmed by the existing facts.

Of thb I tni n.-jt sure. !er when cut has reached a de xterity which rn tlu season may be. ared as much bv ter how favorable A corn crop miy be in the effects of a cold soil upon the Peed as by au early autumnal frost. Coru should never be planted, therefore, un til the atmosphere has been tempered by summer heat and the soil has been weil warmed by the early summer sun. It should be planted at 6uch a time and iu such a soil that it will germinate at once, and start forth in life with a strong and healthy green color. A yellow and stunted growth in the corn crop is never followed by a vigorous and profitable maturity. It is heat, then, which corn requires a warm soil and warm weather. It is only under fortunate circumstances like these that a great crop can be raised ; and it is only by the observance of this law that the average yield of ccrn in any locality can be brought to the highest degree. The preparation of the soil f or corn planting is simple and similar to that re quired by the other common field crops. If stubble land is to be used it should be thoroughly pulverized by OLe early and one later spring ploughing. If, how ever, sod land is to be used, it should be ploughed immediately before the plant ing, and the furrow set at an snide of forty-five degrees, in order to secure a proper and necessary circulation of the air throuch the soil during the early growing cf the crown, and in order to provide for the most effective applica tion of manure, to which I shall allude hereafter. The land should not be ploughed ia the autumn with any idea that this will be a substitute for spring ploughing, but only iu heavy stubble land as a valuable preliminary to the cultivation of the next year. Nor should the manure be applied in the au tumn unless you are willing to lose one half of that stimulating power which corn especially demands of its fertil izers. Corn is one of the crops to which green, undecayed barn-yard manure can be profitably applied. I have spoken of the use of sod land for the corn crop : and it is to land of thi3 description that green manure may be applied with great advantage. If you will spread the ma nure broadcast upon the land j ust before pughing, and turn your sod upon it, not flat, but at the angle 1 have desig nated, you will prepare for the most rapid and sudden decomposition during those very weeks in which the corn grows most vigorously. The bed which you have thu3 prepared for rootlets when they are engaged ha their busiest operation, is the best that can be con ceived of.
