WOMAN'S FAITH.
Vlicn life grow dark its flattering glo
It bright delusions dimmed and gone
When worldly gold has turned to dross,
And hope no longer lures us on,
Tie then we test tlie precious ore
In woman's breast, untried before.
Should font prove rough, and skies obscured.
And angry tempests rend my eaila
My bark, in no sweet haven moored,
The sport of waves, and adverse gales;
Oh ! then, my love, I'd turn to thee,
lly polar star on life's rude sea.
Or if, beneath some stricken tree,
That emblemed forth my own stern lot,
I stood, in midnight reverie,
By all, perchance, but thee forgot;
'Ti then for thy dear voice I'd long,
To drown the night-bird's boding song.
Or wlien, In winter's saddening hours,
Their U y chills would round me creep
When fronts had spoiled my summer bowers,
And dark Sirebodings banished sleep;
Oh! whence would come my ray of bliss,
And thou not near, lu gloom like this?
But should those waves subside to rest,
And gentle calms o'er ocean reign,
The halcyon, slumbering on her nest,
l'rocluim sweet peace restored again;
Would I theu look to thee alone,
W hen myriad lights around me shone?
Or should some gonial spring restore
That blifhted tree to forest green
The Owl's dull chant be heard no more,
Where blither minstrels cheered the scene;
Would thought recur, as day grew bright,
To that dear voice that lone'y night?
Or doomed on foreign strand to roam,
Vr nnught sustained but dream of thee;
Miould happier fortunes cull me home
My fettered spirit once more free
Would it not find, iu life's bright streams,
A lethc for the woe-wrought dreams?
Thus, thus man's heart that senseless thing
When swoln with pride, secure in ease;
While suppliant tendrils ronnd it cling,
Deems woman's faith but such as those;
Nor owns, till summer wreaths decay,
Iu its fond clasp a constant stay.
l or woman's faith, like faith divine,
F.ndureth (inn, through time and place
Not the frail annual's transient twine,
Hut the perennial's fust embrace;
The generous ivy, ofttimes seen
To clothe e'en ruin in living green. w. B

They call me light hearted,
Oh, little they know
Ot the hours I've past
In sadness and woe.
They call me light hearted,
They judge by the smile
That sits on my brow;

There's joy in that sadness
I cannot express ;

It comes but to blcsB !
Then call me light hearted;
I'll never complain,
For the smile I must wear
To cover my pain.

THE FIRST STATE PRISONER.
BY GRANT THOEBLRX.
One day lie gave a man a pair of boots.
"Now, friend," says he, Hhee must baing
home these boots on fourth day evening."
Says the man, "You shall have them."
The boots did not come home till the fifth
day evening. Noah was wroth. lie
gave the man a long lecture on the evils
of disappointment and want of punctuali
ty. When he drew np to breathe, the
man replied :
"Sir, I am a poor man ; have a wife
and three children, the youngest only
forty-eight hours old. I had to tend to
my wife and cook for my children. It
was not in my power to finish the boots
sooner, isoan sua continued to magnny
the horrors of disappointment. The man
grew angry ; tiis &cotcn Diooa oouea in
his veins ; he struck the counter with his
fist like a sledge-hammer. "I know,"
says he it's a terrible thing to be disap
pointed. I remember going up to the
park to see you hung, and I never was
so disappointed in my life when I saw the
reprieve.
Now this was a knock down argument
as an Irishman -would say. It was a case
in point, as they say in court ; and a fact
beyond all controversy, as they say in
Congress. Noah was dumb ; he opened
not his mouth. He gave the man anoth
er pair to make, kept him in employ
ment, treated him kindly, but as the man
said he never heard the word disappoint
drop from his lips thereafter.
Noah went on prospering and to pros
per. Une day he borrowed various sums
of money, and obtained a number of en
dorsements. The bills he changed for
gold ; the endorsements he got shaved in
Wall street. That night he was off for
part unknown, taking with him a dear
sister, the wife of a young friend, to cheer
him on the way. This story is true to
the letter, and being the first subject of
state prison reform, the day dreamers of
the present time may settle the question
whether banging or state prison is the
surest way of curing a consummate vil
lain. His family and friends never heard
from him.
Agricultural ttcaMng.
1 landed in New York, June 1774, by
trade a rough nailmaker, in the 22d year
of my age. In October following I went
tip to the Tark to see a man hung, (at
that time the- Park was out of town, and
only 50,000 inhabitants). With ten thou
sand fools, some bigger and some smaller
than myself, we stood watching the vi
bration of the rope and the iron hook
during two long hours. Then the sheriff'
btood on the scaffold and read a reprieve.
I confess I was very much disappointed
I expected to see a hanging, hutnohan
ing was there.
The man was Noah Gardner. lie
kept a large shoe store in New York,
' lie committed forgery, which, at that
time, was death by the luws of the United
Status. The state prison in New York
was building at this time ; this was the
first prison erected in the world for re
form, instead of hanging. The Society
of Friends were the chief promoters of
this humane system. One room in the
prison was now ready to receive crimi
nals. The Kriend.4 procured from the
governor's commutation from death to
the state prison tor life.
Ileing a shoemaker by trade, they gave
him a stool wax, lasts and awls, and here
commenced the state prison manufactory.
Next court, six vagabonds were sent to
keep him company ; thera he learned to
make shoes. I visited the prison three
years after this. In one large room sal
three hundred shoemakers. Noah was
provost marshall, walking throu"h the
ranks with cane in hand, punishiii" evil
doers and praising them that did well.
Seven years having passed over him, the
Friends waited on the governor. 'Friend,'
said tuey, "seven years ago you would
have hung this man ; now he is a reform
ed member saved to society."
He received an unconditional pardon,
and came out. The Friends found him a
f lore on Tearl street, found him money,
enoorsea ms notes, and gave him their
euMora. Imraediuelv he

Friends, and said thee and thou with the

SOME NOSE.
The following incident we had from a
friend who knows the parties. Deacon
Comstock, of Hartford, Connecticut, is
well known as being provided with an
enormous handle to his countenance, in
the shape of a huge nose, in fact it is re
markable for its great length. On a late
occasion, when taking up a collection in
the church to which the deacon beloncs.
as he passed through the congregation
every person to whom he presented the
bag seemed to be possessed with an un
controllable desire to laugh. The deacon
did not know what to make of it. He
had often passed round before, but no such
effects as these had he ever witnessed.
I he deacon was fairly puzzled. The se
cret however leaked out. ne had been
afflicted for a day or two with a slight
sore on his nasal appendage, and had
placed a small piece of sticking plaster
on it. inuring the day referred to.the nlnu
ter had dropped off, and the deacon seein
it, as he supposed, on the floor, picked it
np and stuck it on again. But alas be
picked up instead, one of those little
pieces of paper which are pasted on the
end of every spool of cotton, and which
reads as follows: "Warranted to hold out
200 yards." Such a sign on such a nose,
was enough to upset the gravity of even
a puritan congregation, and we think
the laughing justifiable.
The Poor Man's PirE. We admit
that the money expended for tobacco
might buy good clothes and wholesome
food ; but among the sunbeams let into
the cottage, not the least is the light of
the poor man's pipe. We write now with
especial reference to the treatment of
women ; and we are convinced that the
pipe has a very sedative and tranquili
sing effect. Much angry and bitter feel
ing, we are convinced, is puffed out and
dissipated with the fumes of the tobacco.
On the w hole, the pie is not an offence,
but a protection to women. North Brit
ish Review.
O" There are three sorts of nobility
divine, worldly, and moral ; the divine
depends upon the power of God ; the
worldly upon the greatness of our birth,
the moral upon the liberty of our mind.

From the New England Fanner,
THE CLOVER.
The surface of the earth at this time is
almost everywhere covered with that
rich, beautiful and fragrant plant, clover,
of one kind or another. It covers broad
fields, waiting for the scythe, and mean
while scattering its fragrance over towns
and villages; in springs in wide pas
tures, dots the hills where sheep roam,
checkers the valleys where cattle graze
and perfumes them with its sweet breath.
From it bees are busy laying up stores ot
honey which may yet come to our tables.
The dusty way-side and the crevices in
the dry rocks are redolent of the clover
blossoms, and the bleak bank and deep
excavation of the railroad track are
cheered with its beauty and fragrance too.
It is not a new setting of gems in the sweet
grass, but a multiplication of them, with
fresh brilliants added. It comes to us
daily, not only on our senses, but to our
physical nature, in the golden butter, ten
der sirloins or lamb ; in the cream for
our fruit and ices, and grateful milk dur
ing the fervid heat !
"The clover is everywhere," people
est. "and how came it there?" Fields
v
at band are now so thickly covered with
it that it can no longer stand. But those
fields were not seeded by man. Last year
some of them were sowed with oats that
are now dense with clover alone ; and so
it is with pastures, and even some low
grounds where clover has rarely, if ever,
been seen before. It is everywhere.
Grows in the garden" and corn field.
Herebolds up its modest head in the hot
highway, and there, looks clean and prim
by the spring, or laves its blossoms in
the cool brook as the limpid waters pass
along.
Well, welcome, welcome, to the clover
for it sheds innumerable blessings on us,
for, with the other grasses it forms the
basis of agriculture. No wonder the
Flemings said, that "without clover no
man in Flanders would pretend to call
himself a farmer." The introduction of
clovers, and the cultivated grasses, is one
of the greatest improvements in modern
husbandry. The commencement of in
provements in tbe different species of
live stock, in the mode of cultivation, and
in the superior quality, as well as quan
tity, of the crops of grain, may be dated
from the period when the sowing of clo
vers and grass seeds were generally in
troduced.
But where have the clovers come from
now, appearing so suddenly and so uni
versal in extent ? We cannot tell can
you ? but our theory is, that their pre
sent appearance in such quantity, mak
ing the earth rich and lovely, is the ef
fect of the drouths of 1854 and '55. Du
ring these seasons, not only the surface
of the earth became as dry as a puff ball,
but in digging some eight or ten feet
scarcely a handful of moist earth could
be found. It was then that the secret
stores of the earth were called on to sup
ply the enormous evaporation from the
surface. The moisture from below came
up, bringing with it minerals in its way,
and among them something -perhaps
the sulphate of lime having an affinity
for clover seeds and put them into ac
tive condition; they germinated and grew
and covered the earth with their foliage,
fragrance and flowers.
If this theory be a plausible one or if
it is not drouths have their office to
perform as well as winds and showers
and storms. Indeed, we have no doubt
of the fact ; and though they wasted our
fields, and the water-courses were dry,
and cattle went weary and thirsty to
their parched valleys, and returned to
their heated stalls hollow and thin, yet
they were carrying on the operations of
that wise and Omnipotent Power who al
ways knows what is best
It is our theory that the same causes
that is, the introduction of mineral sub
stance from below that ruined so many
wells after those drouths, and that con
taminated the Cochituate water, whereby
tens of thousands were deprived of tlie
pure beverage, bring this abundance of
clover, and may feed innumerable other
plants for years to come, for the benefit
of bph man and beast.
We cannot now pursue the sues
tions that crowd npon us, but some of our
learned and observing correspondents,
may do the agricultural world, at least,
a lavor, by giving the subject 6ome in
vestigation.
On the other hand, there is another
class of cows naturally disposed to turn
sUll their food into the pail Turn a cow
of this kind into rich grass along witn we
above, and she will rather get poorer ev
ery day, if the milk is taken from her;
while her plump and siee nvu
ing in weight. The former will consume
greatly more grass and water uwu m
klter, returning for it, in, proportion, a;
still greater quantity of milk, but interior
in quality. In town dairies, when fed on
sour grains, distillers' wash, &C-, the quan
tity sometimes yielded is almost incredi
ble. When such is the case, however,
life is generally short, especially if cows
are in a low state at calving, iicnce ine
reason why dairymen purchase near-
calves of this class in good condition.
The above two classes may be called
extremes between which there is a mean
cows which if turned into a rich field
of grass along with the other, would keep
themselves in good condition and give a
medium quantity of milk, the quality de
pending npon the richness of the food.

DIFFERENCE IN COWS.
Cows under eel-tain constitutional cir
cumstances, are naturally disposed to
convert their food into fat; so much so
that there is great difficulty in keeping
6ome individuals in a breeding state, and
more especially the improved Short,
horns, Devons, and Herefords. Turn a
cow of this description into rich grass,
and she is soon useless for anything but
the shambles. The quality of mii she
gives may be fine but the quantity almost
nothing. We have had a Devon, the
property of a noble duke, which carried

SAVE YOUR PLUMS NOW.
We begin to think this can be done,
We were yesterday on the grounds of one
of our best horticulturists, and saw the
application, and have some faith in its
success. Our friend thinks there is no
chance for mistake about its efficacy.
He informed us that he applied it last
year, after the curculio had begun its
ravages and that it not only saved those
which were unstung, but many of the
plums on which the insect had left its
card, healed up and ripened well. The
liquid "enters the opened wound and de
stroys the egg. This is the only remedy
he had ever found to avail against this
slippery enemy of one of our best fruits
His recipe is, one pound of unslaken
lime, six pounds of salt one barrel of wa
ter.
The mixture is to be applied with a
common garden syringe. If one applica
tion is not sufficient, repeat it, A single
application answered with him last year.
No time is to be lost, as the young
plums are already set, and the enemy has
begun to show himself. If the syringe
is not to be had, sprinkle on the liquid in
some other way. The mixture is cheap
and easily applied, and every man, who
has a plum tree should try it. This is
the most philosophical remedy we have
yet seen suggested, and we commend it,
with more confidence than most things, to
the notice of fruit growers. If it answers
our expectations it will be worth millions
to the country. American Agriculturist.
From the New England Farmer.
GRANITE BOWLDERS.
A Practical Way to Remove them.
Many ingenious theories have been
aduced, as to the time when, and the man
ner how, these fragments of granite
stones were scattered over the New Eng
land States, and many othejr parts of the
world.
Some geologists think they were bro't
at the time of the flood ; frozen to large
pieces of ice, as we often see small stones
m the ice of our rivers. From the di
rection of the various strata of the earth,
they argue that a drift has sometimes
swept over it, from north-west to south
east, and at that time, the bowlders were
taken from their parent quarries, and
scattered over the land. In corrobora
tion of this hypothesis, is the well-known
fact that granite bowlders are found in
large quantities to the south-east of quar
ries of that stone.
But it is of little consequence to the
farmer whose arable lands are encum
bered with these bowlders, whether this
or other theories be true or false. He
wants to understand a practical way of
removing them. The following is a cheap
and expeditious method of breaking them,
when large.
First, remove all the earth from around
them, as low as tbe bottom of the bowl
der ; this being done, kindle a fire npon
its top, or side, as is most convenient In
a short time, thin scales of the stone will
be detached under the fire ; these must be
removed, and the fire kept burning. The
heat expanding the stone and convertin
it - .
me moisture it contains into steam will
open one or more seams ; now with a
sharp crow-bar, the seams are widened
by well-directed and energetic blows, and
in a short time the mammoth bowlder is
broken into pieces that may be easily re
moved.
This method is much cheaper, requires
less skill, and is less dangerous than blas
ting. Coarse and refuse wood, of little
value, may be used. Any man can do
the work, tending from six to ten fires at
a time, and will find it hard but exciting
business. Do not throw water ppon the
stone at all, but keep np the fire, and you
wiu not lau of success.
