" 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

" Can you tell us a story about this,
dear Auuty ? asked the inquisitive lit
tie Aueusta. , ;
" Yes ; one whieh applies well to the
subject. Listen; 'lis about
LAZIN'KSS. ; ; ,.''
An ass, who, in his days of youth,
Had wasted the precious hours,
Came too late to know the truth ; '
To recall time past was beyond hit power
And that tug only use, in tact
Was to carry bundles on his bai k.
Unwilling luinx lf to hear the shame "
Of his stupidness and folly.
He said his jureata were to blame ; '
lie was not instructed fully.
S lid lie, " I'd then have learned so fast

Should go at once to school. , , ,, ,
To a famous teacher he quickly runs, -
Whose puiiils read and write, by rule.

Mr Monkey tried and tried in vain, , .
His knowledge to impart 5 ' ; ' ' '
To the j oung asses, who complain
Ol long lessons to learn by heart. ' .
The- yawn, when they these lessons -ay,
A nd I xe about the livelong day.
' You're voung," their teacher to them said,
" But when you older atses be.
You'll lead the life your father hd j
'Tis all you re worth, I see ;
And when you're called Stupid At,' : .
Believe it is the truth, at last.". 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-
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."
- ' There was once a farms . "
Lazy and idle, ., . , !
. Who rode on his donkv . ; ,;r,
i,,, Without any bridle.' 1 '
" Sir," said the donkey,
, ! ' Here grows such sweet gran ;
What a tMatkwonM.ba' .;,,'".Vr, :V
- Could I make a repast!"
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. '

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.

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

and crowded through the day with admir

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

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 ?
