" Now, Herman, tell me, why do so many children goto school not knowing lor what reason they are sent r , " . H Because, dear Aunty, their heads remain empty." " Right and surely no father sends his children to school to be idle. He tells them always to study, and endeav or to learn all they can. What is your teachers name ? Is he a young man ? "His name is Goodstrength,"- replied Herman. M He is quite old ( our father went to school to him ; but he seems young, be is bo strong and active. " He is no doubt," said the old lady, " one of those teachers who have a love for their hard task. Teachers are of ten to blame for their indifference and indolence in teaching; yet, parents sometimes find fault with them for their children's stupidity, when the truth is, the children are lazy and idle, and like bettter to play, and waste away their 1 - j j .t i precious lime, man to siuuy anu tuiutu " Can you tell us a story about this, dear Auuty ? asked the inquisitive lit tie Aueusta. , ; " Yes ; one whieh applies well to the subject.

I .ill "O, the fourth picture must be Mr. Monkey, with a fashionable coat," said Herman. - , " Yes," said Augusta ; " and look at the two asses 1 one can see in their faces bow lazy they are. And then the old ass. with package on his back, is certain ly the t her." " You are right,' replied Aunty Won . dertul ; " and see bow his master beau htm. It i the consequence of hi la ziness. " Laziness is detestable ; not only be- VOL.,1. cause it makes ui ignorant and thought less, but also because it causes it causes' us to be dishonest and deceitful. The idle, in spite of their indolence may lead an honest life ; yet they do not like to exert themselves to provide means for their own support, and in seeking an easy way to live they are tempted to take that which belongs to another. Any one who does this becomes a thief. "A thief is every one's horror, and his fate is severe punishment, if he be caught , . " I will tell you a story about a farm- er, who was punished for his dishonesty." THE FARMER AND THE DONKEY. - ' There was once a farms . " Lazy and idle, ., . , ! .

The farmer thought it over ' Long in his mind, , If to forbid the donkey clover , A reason he couH find ; But the donkey was the stronger, , And he quickl got away From hit unwilling master, In the sweet grass to p'ay. Now ha k 1 Who's emiine ? ' "Crack ! crack ! crack I " ; 'Tis the landlord, Mr, Saving, " Clack I clack 1 clack ! " The farmer beats the donkey, Saya, " Let us nuiek begone. , For if the landlord sees me I'm certainly undone." But the donkey only laughed Ha ! ha! ha 1" And before the farmer thought, , Was the landlord there. "Hoi came that donkey here, ' Spoiling my ?ra" ? " " And the farmer, pale with fear, To the judge was brought at last. The children beean to feel quite at home with Aunty Wonderful, and when she left the room to say something to her old maid servant. Herman seated himself in her chair, and spun as well as if he were an old spinner. A spinning wheel was to him so attractive, when he was quite a little boy, that he gave his mother no rest till she had taught him to spin. When the old lady came into the room she was astonished to find Herman thus employed. " Ah," said she, "you spfn like a woman ! A boy should not soin : that is not work for him. I am not an-1 erv with vmi. hut T arlvi.a t I waste your time in learningr that which .A.. t i n l f can be of no use to yon." ! U, dont be angry, dear Aunty, said Herman, coming forward ; " I know right well how to spin. See ! the thread is straight and even as when yon held it in your hand." " Angry ? that I am not Do not misunderstand me. I wished to sny to you that an occupation which was unfit ted for you would be of no use. And it is as easy to learn that which is useful as that which only amuses, whilst it has no utility. I would save yon the mor tification of being laughed at, and spend ing your time tor nothing. . t,ery one should seek such an employment or pro fession as will benefit himself, and make him of use to others. Did you ever hear the story of the old goal r " I " JNo ; do tell it, dear good Aunty," replied the children. ' ., i to bk continued. HOP RAISING, A FICKLE BUSINESS. Messrs. Editors : There are causes and effects which follow causes, that may be felt years after causes cease to exist. I here are causes which lead to prosperity and those which tend to ad versity. Hop-raising and hop specula tions, like lotteries, have made some wealthy and a larger number sorry. There is no production growing out of the earth liable to such fluctuations in prices as hops. Whoever raises hops, to sell, runs a gambler's risk, he has no assurance whether he shall realize fifty cents a pound, or lose his labor. Per haps there was no town in this Common wealth more celebrated than Wilming ton tor producing bops at an early pe riod. In the latter part of the last cen tury, almost every farmer in town had a hop-yard, and as hops grew in demand the raisers proxpered, and from an al most utter destitution of money, that fascinating tempter began to circulate in such sums as to produce a giddiness in some of the heads of those who had been unaccustomed, only occasionally to have their organs of vision gratified by such a rare visitant. The flow of money in to Wilmington from the sale ot hops, was soon promulgated in the neighbor ing towns, and the hop excitement ar- rived at such a pitch that men might be seen from all directions bound to VV il- mington to purchase hop-roots which af forded another source of profit to the producer. As a consequence of ready sale at high prices, the bop fever be came epidemic in all the neighboring towns, and finally extended to all the New England States and New York, till that business, like every other profit able business, was over-done, and the production was astly Rreater than the demand, and hop fell from twenty -five cents or more, down to four cents a pound, or no sale, w hich made many a suecula-or regret his temerity. AfVr losing their labor, and more besides, tor one or more reasons, the farmers in their wrath would plow op their hop yards and put their ground to a better use. When prices were high, yards would be multiplied t when low, they would be torn up. This course of ac tion and reaction was followed by con tinued fluctuations from the hi-jhest prices to the lowest, or no salt: a all. ,'ihmi - i n mi - nuimin- , i.i.i l. j . . ... a- -v. -' i. mmn i . , . . aa i . - a-.- 1 " "V J 1 1 " 1 BELLOWS FALLS VER No produce ever sent into market has disappointed the expectations of farmers more than hops, nor no Bpecies of traffic ever entered into, proved more disas trous than bop-speculations. -f - . Now, let us view other consequences. It is well known that hops are not a necessary of life, but used mostly as a luxury. At the time of the bop mania, hop-raising was the prominent subject of conversation. The merino or hen fever never had a harder struggle to form a crisis than the hop-fever Most of the farmers directed all their ener gies to the production of hops, which re quired all toe manure mat possibly could be robbed from the other crops, and of course but scanty crops of grain, English hay and meat could be obtained from a cheated soil. , Hops, like other bulky crops, exhaust the soil, they make no return to it in the shape of manure, and every tun transported from the town was reducing ln vali of the IwlK Thus this delusive money-making bu siness went on till most of the land would neither produce hops or any other de cent crop. Scanty crops of English hay compelled the cattle to live on meadow hay, and who ever saw good butter or beef produced from meadow hay ? Ma nure made from it was but si feeble res torative to land growing poorer every year under the exhausting system of bop-raismg, and to this day the ex hausting effects of growing crops w ich left no restoratives to sustain the soil are visible. For a few years at the close of the last and the beginning of the ' present century, very few country towns of its size could boast of as much money brought in for produce as Wilmington, but this wnt dona at a proportionate re- auction ot the value in the iarms. I he excitement produced by this sudden flowing in of wealth seemed to overpow er reason, paralize all inducement to regular industry, and make the wages of regular labor look like a " very little tiling," and men whom we should have as little suspected, as the deacons of the Scottish covenanters, entered into hop speculations at the neglect of good trades, farms and every other pursuit of nonest industry and plunged, in thought less baste, into the dazzling phantoms .u:t- i.l .? , . , i nmcu pruuiise weaiiD, uu ine last uoi lar was mortgaged and the character weather-beaten and looked upon ith suspicion where veracity was required as a test. In consequence of money be coming more plenty, new ideas began to crowd out old ones, new desires to form, and new views and transports awakened in the craniums of those which we had supposed were proof against all sorts of changes and innova- turns. The most of the fortunes mad. So suddenly bv hoo sneculations wr nj transient as Jonah's gourd, and I hard ly recollect an individual who did not lose a part or all of the property which he bad, by patient industry earned be fore the hop excitement took place ; and it is a question in the minds of many thinking people whether Wilmington, as a town, is a dollar the richer for there ever having been such a thing in the world as a hop. . . v , I was personally and practically en gaged at hop-raising from 1792 to 1797, and though young, the impression "ol hop-raising and hop-gambling was indelibly- stamped on my memory in such a manner that it will probably be one uf the last things I shall forget.

The second annual exhibition of lb V hit ingham Agricultural Society, took place ai Jacksonville, on TuesHay !Vt 7th. The weather Was all that the most sanguine could wish foi and the attendance very lary.j. Al though this exhibition was not equal lo wtmt it might have been under different circum stances, it was sr'nerally very s itisfncioi y. and will show what the Society can do in such things. The show of Cattle, Horses, Sheep, Swine and Poultry, was larjie, and of good quality. There were 159 pairs ot Oxen and Steert exhibited, 16 yearling heifers, 24 calves, all ol' which would do credit to any show. The show of c, heep and swine was not so numerous, but good. There w a leu number of homes exhibited, than last year, but of a superior qualify. We notice in particular, the henu tiful Stallions of Lewis t'lark, of Colerain. and Dwijihi lin ks, f Rowe, Invh of which showed great speed The eliano tin trot tii'g was not the best, but the Imlg. s al lowed that Mr. CI i V 1 orsc a! owe t , leu than 8 minutes yait.

A recent letter of Rev Mr. Nute to a gentleman in Boston, gives the follow ing account of the outrages of the Mis ourians at the time of their departure from the vicnity of Lawrenc.' ; The evening before, at the request of the governor, I tried to negotiate for the safe pas-age of this regiment over the Kansas at a crossing several miles below Lawrence, the colonel In command, the same who had me prisoner, promising in a note which I took in, to pass quietly and in perfect order. But before, our answer could be returned, they had mo ved on to encamp on the hilL Now mark the bloody treachery of the miscre antsjafter getting a little over three miles from town on the road to Lecompton, and about one mile from my cabin, they resumed their depredations. First they took two horses from a Mr. Thorn; next to him lived an excellent man, David Buffum, who was badly wounded at tla seige of Lawrence last December, it i.i crippled for life. ; lie was harnessing his horse when he saw them approaching j a squad of "Kickapoo rangers." He fled as fast as his lameness would permit, into his corn field ; they pursued, overtook him and shot him through the bowels. After shooting him, one seized him by the throat, and drawing a revolver threaten ed to blow bis brains out ; he begged his life, and on finding that he was mortally wounded they left him 5; he died that night, and I have just been called to attend bis funeral tomorrow the first ot toe martyrs w bo baa received that , repest for t last two weeks, A. mes senger came in ami reported to the gov ernor ; be hastened on, and,? hear ar rested the murderer, who was afterwards rescued by his fellow . scoundrels. All the U. S. troops have left us to-day and returned to Lecompton. Guerilla bands are laying waste the country south of us, burning and butchering as they go. V hat is to te tne ena ot tins no man can see. Mr. Buffum was from Salem, MaSS. -- ' ' "' " I have heard of one of the most abominable outrages on a woman that ever came to my knowlege., , She lived but a short distance from us. Several fiends came to the house in the night, took her out into the bushes, stripped her of every article of clothing, tied and gagged her, and then proceeded to vio late her one after the other to the num ber of four. ' She was left nearly dead, but after a longtime crawled back to the house and aroused the other inmates, all of whom were females. I have taken some pains to investigate this story and am satisfied that it it true. I could give you a score of stich diabolisms but you will need no further proof of the hell lisbne of the creatures whom the minions of slavery have let loose upon us. They think to drive us all from the country by their horrible deeds. I am astonished at the firmness with which our - people stand these things. The heroic spirit has not died out. ' Such trials as these show the noble material that goes to make the lovers of free dom and of God." i 9a O tx m p o. 1 k - Tor tbt Ttnwr. CAMPAIOS OXO. ' ' " tvirs uasarr.

( The "account of . tho - naming of Ht Kilburn was doubtless read with" inter est by all to whoso notice it come. , There nrn tnms fnntsr. fiplnncrincr tit that tiiatorv of the mountain and others pertaining to the man, which do l ot appear in the , narrative,' and they, together with (hose already recorded, may possibly be in corporated into it single communication of moderate length. This is not the first mountain that has borne the name vi auuuiu. iu 1110 wuiiiv ui aieaiurn,- Ireland, fs a Kilburn Mountain, 'of ' . which mention is made in Harross's His- . tory of the Irish Rebellion. It was the , scene of kinnish May ls i781ba. f. jV tween a troop of the Taghman oavairy and body of the rebels. " n . '& Ml Kilburn was for many years call ed "the Governor's calf pasture." ' The origin of this name wa as follows. ; It -was the custom of Gov. Benning Went worth in granting townships to reserve for himself five hundred acres in each township. When be was about select ing his land in ' alpole, he consulted Col. Benjamin Bellows, who was the ' chief man in the town, as to what was the most desirable part of the town to lay claim to, at the same time express ing his decided preference for a location near the great falls, as the probable site of the future village. CoL Bellows very honestly told bim that the 1 ud there would make a very good calf pasture,' but nothing more. The Governor im agining that the Colonel wished to ' ap- nmnriflta tbnas. lumla rt riimv1f anrl Sa discouraged his own selection of them,' resolved to locate his claim there and actually did so. " r Whether Governor . Wentworth ever learned that he was the owner of the precipitous and rocky hill in question tradition does not inform us, but "the Governor's calf pasture"' for many years" after was the occasion ' ; of many a merry joke and hearty laugh among the actual settlers of Walpole. ' John Kilburn, the first civilized in- , habitant of Walpole, was a descendant - in the fifth generation from Thomas n Kilburn, the common ancestor of all the Kilburus in America, who embarked from London to this country in the ship Increase, April 15, 1635, and settled in "WartWafleld, Ct. The family was a. very ancient " fane," its pedigree 1being traceable nearly or quite ' back" to the ; time of Wrilliam the. Conqueror. ,, The ; proudest Briton of the thirteenth cen- -tury was William de Kilbourne, lord of ' the manor of Kilbourne in -'Yorkshire, '' and in the long list of names which ' in- - tervene between him and Thomas Kil- burn, are to be found lords, viscounts, J vicars, priests and abbots, as well as mere burgesses, gentlemen and yeoman. John Kilburn was born at Glasten- . burg, Ct, in 1704. . He married Me- : hitable Bacon, of Middletown, CL, Oct. 2G, 1732. - In 1737, about which time his wife died, be sold his land in Con necticut, and removed to Northfleld, " Mass., from which place he removed to Walpole in the Spring of 1749. In the " mean time he had married again, and , , his family consisted of himself, his wife, -, , his son John thirteen years old, and his , daughter Mehitable fifteen years old.' He built himself a log hut near the ' ! mouth of Cold River, and in this he -lived two years without seeing a single n human being save his own family. The r ,( exact spot where his cabin stood, is , where ten apple trees on the east side - . of the road now stand. . It was a notable - ; coincidence that the stream was named ? v!
