What shall be Done with Davis?
Tho storm has. passed over; its thunders have died away; -fears and resentments are subsiding; the nation can now consider, in the full con sciousness of security and strength, w hat ought to be done w ith the leader of the-rebellion.- lie is no longer feared; he is rather an object of pity. And though public opinion is not to decree his late, yet it . is highly impor tant that the Christian sentiment of the country be right on a qnestion of so much moment to its moral health, and to our hope of the blessing of God ' The question, What shall be done with Jefferson Davis? is not one that turns wholly on his personal dcscrt3. lie may not have been an original secessionist, or -a piincipal actor in fomenting rebellion; he may even have opposed it at first, and consented to it only when it was inevitable; he may not have been concerned in the cruel treatment of our prisoners, nor in the assassination of the President; he may have been honest in his politi cal opinions of the right of slavery and of secession ; he may die in the full belief of the righteousness of his course; but tho one great fact will still remain Jefferson Davis is the re ) resent alive man of the rebellion. He is so by his own consent and act. lie has fully identified himself with it.; siuvess or failure, its glory or its .-I tune, its innocence or its guilt, so that the rebellion is to be tried and judged i-i his person. He stands as its sponsor. It the rebellion was worthy to live, he is worthy to live ; if the rebellion is worthy to die, he is worthy to die. As the rebellion was dvserv ing of being treated, he deserves to be treated. Georjre Washington was i;ot more identified with the inde pendence of the United States than D;:vis with the late rebellion nay, i.o! lit ar so completely. The conscience of the nation must sit in judgment upon hi-n. If he ought not to die, it will be sin in us to desire it ; if he ought to die, it is sinful in us to desire that he be spared. If Davis ought to be put to death, it is not be cause policy requires it; not for the repose of. safety of the country; b,ot beea:ie our treasures have been wast ed, and our brothers and sons killed h) battle : not because European opin ion favors 01 oppo-.es it ; not in re venge, or malice. If he is to suffer death, it should bo because justice re- qiiii es it ; because it is right. Or, if he. u to bo set at liberty without a trial, or tried and acquitted, or con- vi.,tcd,v.id pardoned, it should not l-t because we pretended to have an aversion 10 bloodshed for tho past five years prove the contrary when we thin!; proper to shed it; not be cause it would be a nice thing to be able to say to Europe that no one was ever put to death by ns for political oileiiees ; not because some of the fiercest radicals, whose violent pro ceedings were only less reprehensible than those of the rebels, now favor it. bat because it is right and just that ne should be. L"t us, then, in making up our minds on this question, discard all reason ings or expediency, nor like Caiaphas, conclude "that one ma:i must die for the people, that the whole nation per ish not." Such reasonings are ab horrent to God. Tho question how Davis ought to be treated turns on the question how the rebellion ought to be treated. Was it right, was it the duty of the -nation to put down that rebellion at the cost of blood, either of the innocent or the guilty. Were the rank and file of the rebel armies, who stood up and fought for the rebellion, worthy to be shot down for so doing? Was it right for our sons and brothers and neighbors, to hazard their lives in the high places of the lield to put down the rebellion. Or did they die as the fool dies ? Do we justify oar doings in the list four years in killing and being killers, in order to kill the rebellion? Here are the alternatives : The re bellion was either a great virtue or it was a great crime. It was no com mon, no trifling thing to fill a country with desolation and mourning. II the rebellion was right, it was intensely and gloriously right; and we were outrageously wrong and guilty in put ting it down by so much blood. If the rebellion was wrong, it was a most crying wrong, a wrong that cries unto God from the ground that has opened her mouth to swallow up such a profusion of blood. Davis, then, as the willing and accepted champion of the rebellion, is cither a fallen patriot, an unfortunate worthy, or a monstrous criminal. These arc the alternatives. It is true, the putting of Davis to death will not restore the dead to life; and the ssme is true in the case ojT murderers always. Cut that con sideration can have no weight but in the minds of fools. It maybe that a life of contempt or o f banishment would be more intolerable to him than death; but that has nothing to do with the question. It may be that if lie should be put to death, many will regard him as a martyr. A plausible argumnet may be made out that it will be good policy to spare him ; but such arguments should have no weight. It may be said that his execution will strike terror into the hearts of rebels and prevent future outbreaks, but that should not sway our judgment in the least, nor the fear that his execu tion will exasperate them. Whatever Jcferson Davis deserves, according to the even-handed justice of the Eternal God at the hand of this ration, that tho nation, through its lawful magistracy, is under the most solemn obligation to mete out to him ; and if it be liberty, remuneration and applause, give it to him in full meas ure. If it be a public, ignominious death on Ihc scaffold, give it to him ; for, gurclr, it is no common treatment wliLh he ought to receive. He can not divest himself of his responsibili ty."" There Jic is, the tnown man of the rebellion. It is to be judged in Lis person. Whatever judgment we pass on it, we pass on him. Woe to us if wc kill the Amelekites and spare Agag. Let U3 beware of mocking the justice of Heaven : by our sickly Motions of policy and of mercy. Who was the merciful man, King Saul, or the prophet of God t r O ; Aversion to bloodshed is not mercy ; nor is justice cruelty. - Purejusticc is mercy in its highest form. To spare the guilty, who ought to suffer, i3 cruel ty under tho mock of clemency. Is it worthy of solemn reflectionthat those States in which murderers have been allowed to go unpunished have had blood to drink during this rebellion in the largest measure. If we spare the guilty shedding of human blood. God will require it of us in sevenfold measure. Woe to the' land that is trodden by the feet of murderers. The blood of the innocent cries unto God, and that cry cannot bo appeased but in the blood of the guilty. It is in the light of such truths a3 these that tlw question at the head of this article should be answered. God is the judge of nations as well a3 of individuals. Watchman and llejlcctor.

Its depth is 41 feet. The water is from two and a half to three feet in depth. A coat of ice is formed on the walls of the well the whole depth of the water. The ice becomes so thick in the win ter as to render it difficult to dip up water with a common bucket. The surface of the water also freezes over every night during the winter. Ice has thus formed four inches in thick ness in one night, the present winter. The owner is obliged to descend into the well, and cut open the ice, every morning in winter, in order to draw water. As spring advances, the sur face of the water ceases to freeze, but the ice remains on the walls around the water, diminishing in quantity as summer advances, but does not entire ly disappear; some remaining until the next winter's freezing rnmmpnwa The well yields an abundant supply of water.

An Experiment with Carrots. Mr. J. II. Blackman of Sharon, Mass., writes to the Country Gentleman as follows: Last year I had a piece of about two acres under cultivation, which had been broken up the previous year; the lower part of which bordering up on a pond, was planted with potatoes: The soil is rich, but heavy and very strong at the bottom. It is such a piece of land as a person would natu rally select for cabbages. ; - The year I broke up the land it was so wet I could not plant it till very late in the season. Upon this low piece of land I determined last year to sow carrots, as an experiment. I measured off one-sixth o f an acre alongside of the pond, and spread on seven horse loads of line barnyard manure, and plowed it in about the middle of April, the horse slumping in, at one end of the piece, six to eight inches at every step. I let it stand two or three days ; then harrowed it thoroughly. I then ridged it up, turn ing the ridges as near together as the plow would admit. Upon these ridges I sowed seed of my own raising, thickly, with one ot Horace Emery's seed sow ers, and waited patiently for the re sult. The carrots started very readi ly and handsomely, but the weeds outgrew them, and I had to fight them hard. The woodchucks cat the car rots off almost as fast as they came up, and dry weather came on, and the plants being very tender on account ot the moisture ot the soil, many of them burned off near the ground, and it seemed for a while that the dry weather and woodchucks would en tirely destroy them. But I persevered in pulling weeds and catching wood chucks till a slight shower gave the carrots a fresh start, and they went a'lead fi.iely. It now became n:ces sary to thin them, out, and I asked a neighbor, who had raised carrots, how far apart the plants ought to be left to thrive well ? He held down his hand and spread his lingers apart, as far as he conveniently could, and said, "about so far apart." I did not agree with him, and thinne'd them out to eight inches apart. I weeded them three times and hoed between the ridges four times, when I left them to take care of themselves. Another neighbor, who had experience in rais- ing carrots iin mis way) came along when I was weeding, and said, "you will not have any carrots there; they wont grow in such soil as that, and 1 should think you would have known i . . . i . . , , oener man to sow mem in such a place." But I said ''wait and see." I let them remain in the ground till late in November, when I commenced digging; and such carrots no one in my neighborhood ever saw. They .111 .1 1 . I I. were an large, the largest ucing lour or five inches in-diameter and some twenty-two inches in length, and weigh ing lroni four to five pounds each. Fourteen of the largest packed closely into a bushel basket, filled it heaping full. The result of the crop upon one- sixth ot an acre, was one hundred and fifty pounds each, or seven thousand five hundred pounds being three tons and three-quarters, or twenty-two tons and one-half to the acre. The result would have been larger still, had the land not been stony at the bottom, which made it very difficult digging, in consequence of which several bushels were left broken off in the ground. One of my neighbors had at the same time about one-quarter of an acre of light sandy soil in carrots, about three or four inches apart, not ridged, and a yield of seventy bushels. From these results I arrive at the-conclusion that carrots required moisture, treedom trom weeds and plenty of room. The Cotton Crop. The Eufala (Ga.) Xcu-s estimates the next cotton crop at not over 2,000.000 bales, and very likely not exceeding 1,500,000 bales. The News reckons that 200, 000 able bodied negroes were con verted into soldiers; 100,000 more were lost by battle and other casual tics and incidents of the war ; another 100.000 have congregated in the towns and villages, and their labor is lost to the planters. All these if at work w o ii 1 d produce 1,000,000 bales which must be deducted from an average crop of 3,500,000 bales. A further loss of 500,000 bales is estimated in consequence of the un settled condition of the Southern labor system, the want of stock and agri cultural implements, leaving 2,000, 000 bales a3 the outside figure for the next season.

THE FEEDING AND -CARE OP THE HORSEL This discussion was. opened by Mr. Davis, who contended that the train ing of the colt from infancy was a most important point. He believed the colt should be loose in the stall, and compelled to take his food by reaching up" high, after1 it. '"Tn this way he would by habit hold his head high, and get that length, roundness, and graceful curvature of neck, for which a horse is so highly prized. -This point drew forth much discussion, in which Mr. Davis was assisted by Mr. Pierce and others, while Messrs! Arnold and Kimball, whose most exp edient horses show a mastery of the art of feeding and care, were not dis posed to attach much importance to the method. It was urged that habit in all animals with care, produced wonderful and permanent changes in their organism. The hound by train ing had been rendered more fleet and sagacious. The sheep had been raised with a more abundant and golden fleece. The giraffe, by reaching up ward for his food, had becoma more upright and lofty in neck and staturei Even man had progressed greatly phy sically, perchance intellectually, from the rude and imperfect condition of primitive Adam. Even the reachingj up of Adam to pluck the fruit of the forbidden tree, had not a little influ ence, contrary to the common opinion of the fail in giving him an vpright position while the serpent became prone. At all events, the theory that the horse might get a more graceful curvature of the neck, and a perma nent habit of holding up its head by reaching up for its food, is not an an omaly in the improvement of domestic animals. On the other hand it was contend ed that the data might be at fault, that animals, including man, might fall from that grace and perfection of body with which they were originally endowed, and be brought back under the influ ence of climate, food and training, but in regard to the horse, the great reli ance was to be placed upon the choi cest selections, and a judicious system of breeding. Like as most excellent fruits and grains have arisen from repeated propagations and hybridi zing, in which nature seems to have if not a creative, yet a perfecting power and an ability of acclimating, so ani mals, especially the horse, by careful breeding and crossing is produced more graceful in form, and more airile in movement. Mr. Kimball fed his horses in a manger or box, even with the ground, but so that they could not paw out the fodder. They would not waste their food so easily. He did not approve of racks.' He feeds dry lood, oats, corn meal, tlax-secd, oat straw and hay, does not cut his hay or straw, gives potatoes once or twice a week. The quantity of food should depend upon the animal and the work He does not believe in feeding horses an extra allowance just before driving, he would have them ready at anf time to start ; is not afraid to sweat them not even it the sweat is copious and runs off when you stable them take oft your coat and rub them well, thev t ....... - wm come out all right, lie waters his horse but little at a time, yet of ten, while driving. Mr. Davis cuts feed for his horses and mixes meal and water with it would have a mixture of corn, oats and rye. The rye meal would make the mixture stick to the hay. It takes much less hav than it docs to feed separate. Mr. Richardson raised the question whether he got more nutri ment lor the horse by mixing than by feeding separate. Mr. Davis said more nutriment was extracted from the mixture, as the hay being cut was more easily and completely digested besides the horse would leave less refuse to the hay. Mr. Pierce said if you place hay, meal, and water in the manger the horse would mix them in eating, thereby showing that it prc- lerred them combined. Mr. Davis added upon this point that the feed ot horses was apt to be too bulky. i ne horse would not travel so well with a distended stomach, and would sweat more easily horses should not sweat. Maj. Page here gave an interesting talk, how feeding of horses and oxen was managed m olden times. He would feed sprinkled with meal to both working oxen and horses. It would save much hay at a less ex pense ot gram. Cattle would work liftre easily, would be kept in better condition, and causing less distention ot ttody, this feed would tend to a better frame both of the ox and horse. Mr. Arnold fed dry food, corn on the ear, some oats, and did not groom a horse much. Careful use with proper food and drink, did not re quire that a horse should receive so much rubbing. Mr. I. N. Farr thought care was the great thing in making a and drive carefully, not overload nor sweat the horse. Mr. Roberts sug gested that farmers of Westminster, in all these directions should practice as well as preach. D. C, Wright, who has a span of the oldest horses in town but still in full strength and vigor for work, at tested the benefit of careful treat ment and feeding He had given his horses cut feed for along timeMr. Phrce recommended carrots for hors es, while Mr. Goodrich had fed horses upon parsnips, and found that' they went a long way in feeding, compared with any other root. Phoenix. An ; interesting obituary notice of a lady runs thus 'She was married twenty-four years, and in all that time, never banged the door once.' 'My dear, you are not the woman I took you to be.'

The Nash ville papers are full of news items pointing to great social disturbance and lawlessness throughout Tennes see. , In Fayette ville a lady was drag ged from her horse and horribly treated by some unknown person. In Chattanooga a white girl was shot while cooking, supper in one of the camps. In the Jackson fFir of the 10th inst. we also find the following: ' 'On last Saturday night a negro staggered up to Mr. John Fry, and told him he was stabbed to the heart, and fell dead. It is not known who did it. We learned on yesterday, of another murder, where a negro boy was knocked in the head by another negro and instantly killed.' A Liberal Ghost. That a ghost in a family is not in every instance an unprofitable annoyance is proved by the foil owing fact, vouched for by a 'reliable gentleman.' Orrin Elder of Indianapolis, Ind., went to Califor nia in 1 853, and was killed some five years ago in a drunken brawl. Last week one of his daughters died at Indianapolis, and a few friends gath ered in to watch the corpse. During the night, according to the testimony of Wilber C. Mclntire, the ghost of Elder came into the l-ootn without opening either door or window, delib erately walked up to the coffin and placed upon it a bag containing $670 in ten dollar gold pieces.' Digging Wells Hare to Determine where Water is. At a recent meeting of the American Institute Fanners' Club, a member related his experience in this matter as follows : 'An Irishman in his employ, in or der to ascertain where he ought to dig to obtain water-soonest, got a stone and buried it over night iu the ground, next to the hardpan. Tn the morning he found it quite moist, but not suffi ciently moist to suit his fancy. Next morning he tried it in another spot, and found it very wet on the follow ing morning. 'There' said Patrick, 'you will find water not many feet deep, and plenty of it. Sure enough in a few days' digging Patrick confirm ed his prediction, notwithstanding the jeers of the workmen finding a vein which filled the well to overflowing, and rendered it extremely difficult to bail out the water so as to stone it. The philosophy of the operation seems to be that as great evaporation takes place from the surface of the earth during the night, the water rises up from the depths below to supply the loss, and accumulates in the vicinity of the stone, often making quite a puddle.'
