Thc increased prices obtainpd for wool and the avidity with which it was souglit in market, aftcr the. passage of tlie TarifT act of I&23, pointcd to that business as more lucrative than anv other. A ma- joritj- of tlie farmers cagerly cngaged in mcreasing their llocks of sbeep. 1 he re sult has bccii, that Addison county had, jn 1840, in proportion eitlier to territory or iopulntioti, a nreater numher of shcep, and produced more vvool, than any other. counly in the United States. To show J he truth of this remark, I refer to facts drawn from the statistical tables accompa nying the Census returns of 1S40, and from other sources. There are nine Statcs which had more than one shecp to each inhabitant, lo wit Pennsyh-ania, Virginia, Mainc, Ken' tucky. Connecticut, and Uluo. witn a fraction more than one: New Hamp shire and New York had about two and one-fourth, and Vermont more than five and iIireeMourths to each inhabitant. Should territory be regarded, Vermont will be found tc hare 18o, New York I lii and New Ilimpshire 05, to the square nnle. " Addison county, when compared with the other counties in the State, will be found to have elevcn and six hundredths, Kutland eight and eighty-five hundredths, Grand Isle seven and four hundredths, and Bennington six and nineteen hun dredlhs, to each inhabitant. If territory be regarded. Addison has three hundred and seventy-three, Grand Isle three huu' dred and thirty-four, Rutland two hun dred and eighty three, Windsor two hun dred and, sixty-one, Orange two hundred and forly, and Chittenden, two hundred and twentv-ntip n thf snnare mile. Ta- king eieven toxvns, most favorable to the kequng of shcep, one half the numberin the county, and they will be found to have possessed more than one sheep in each acre oi improveu and unimproved land m those towns, or more than six hundred and forty to the square mile. This array of figures is no idle specu lation. They represent facts, which show the immense stake the farmers of AddK son county possess, in this branch ofhus- bandry. No seclion cf the United States perhaps I might say of the world, being ow so exclusivelv entrafied in it. The Peculiar and excellent grazing qualities)f aoii coniDinea with other circtimstan--ces, would seem'to mdicate to the farmer, that he should still pursue it, as being Iikely to aftord greater nett profits, all things considered, than any otner. uov.

A friend of ours, whosomelimessends, cattle to Brighton, made some inquiries of us, in regard to the rules of the butchers in that btate, respectm? the dressing and weighing of beef cattle. The following is an extract from a law in that -State, in regard to it, which will answer his que- nes. "All beef cattle, exceot bulls, sold in market by veight, shall, when slaughler ed, be prepared for weighing in the fol lowing manner: The legs shall be taken off at the knee and gambrel ioint, the skin shall be taken from all other partsof the animal : the head shall be taken oitat the second ioint of the neck ; theentrails taken out, and all the fat of the same be taken off and weighed as rough Ullow, and every ot'ier. part of the animal, ex cepting the hide and rough tallow, (the udder of cows exccpted,) shall bc weisn ed. "All beef shall be weighed upon thefirst wcck day succeeding that on which itmay be slaufflitered. MSCELLAKY. From the Ladick Xation! Magazine. TIIE DESERTED -VIFE. QT ALICE C. LEE. CIIArTER I.

The trance had given place to a disturbed anduneasy slumbcr; rilh head pillo'vod up on her arms, and her hair unbonnd fnllingin masses upon berbosom, Lucy Clare had for a time fbrjjotlen her misery. No.it was nol tvholly forgotten, for she moaned the name of herhusband, nnd seemed begging him nol to lcave her all alone not to deslroy the happiness which lived upon his Fmiles and tender words. "Your own Lucy," she murmured ; "call me yoursweetwife; clasp me once more loyour Iiearl!"

An orphan from cr carliest remembrancc, shc had known fcw to lovc, and the affection that had been solong repressed in hcr gentle heart was now yielded wannly and unreserredly, and that affcction gave a soft light to her glad, blue cyes, and a tcjider Dcauty to ner aeucate muuiu iu;iujii cd on him, who was far dearer than aught else in the wide world to her. . With no carthly sorrow, no vexing care tq annoy them, what wonder that pcace and love dwelt in the happy mansion. A ycar passed thus, and thcn camc a serpcm 10 meir .cueu. Eveline Gray was a cousm of thc- gentle Lu-iC-it-o rtn cpmrilanro tn her. savc that at timcs she could wcarthcsamc winning sniile, and spcak in her low, swcet voicc. She was beautiful gloriously beautiful ! and Lu cy lookcd when ncar her like the gentle lily tVint hidps its head in the erecn moss of the rallev when placed by thc gardener's hand.be side the quccnly camelia that blcoms for the ad- miration ot thonsands. But the ocart of the proud Eveline was falsc, and hcr nature most basc ana aniut. She haiLvowcd to steal from hcr swcct cousin ihp. lnve that she in herinnocencc decmedun- changcablc. Little did Lucy know thc hcart ol man little did shc drcam of thc sorrow so near at hand, as unconsciously she aidetl in thc schcme her cousin had prepared; for when Evelinc's white hands swcnt thc harp strinjrs, "and hcr brilliant voice floatcd in glorious strains through the hushed room, Lucy would listcn in wrapt attcr.tion and bcg for anothcr, and anothcr song; thcn as Eveline, wcll plcas cd, granted the rcquest, Lucy bade hcr hus band mark the graccful curve of her beautiful arm. or the nroud stateliness of hcr snowy ncck. 'nuiverin'r in the tide of son".' Strange that an anael-likc form should so oftcn en 6hrine thc bascst licart, fillcd with pride, pas sion and trcachcry ! Lucy would have shrunk from that cnwrcatbing arm as from a serncnt, could she have read the purposcs of the friend whom she so trustcd; hcr minu was too purc to comnrchcnd rruilt. such as iealous lovc and woundcd nride had conccived. Eveline had loved Arthur Clare, and before he mct the iircimcd tbat hcr lovc was rcturned. Sbc saw it was but a drcam. and thcn hcr pndc was rouscd : pride that with all hcr glorinus oeauty ana ncr aazzitng lnienccr, a cduu, -rracefuland fairy-hkc it is true, but still child in comparison with herself, should be prefcrrcd before her. Shc had vowcd re venuc. but thouh it was delaycd, it was not tho Tcss ccrtain. She had studicd Arthur's charactcr. Shc knew that actin? from imnulso. thouch noblc and atrectionatc, he was cnangcable and casi ly influcnccd. So she vciled her angcr un- dcr a plcasant sceming, and when shc knew that the first romance of their lovc was pass ed, shc camc to their home little doubting that a new objcct for his attcntions would bc glad ly wclcomcd. But Arthnr trnly loved hi wife, and for a time that lovc was his safc-guard. There wcrc momcnts when thc tull dreauiy cyea- of Eveline would bc fixcd on him, as shc spokc bitterly of thc misery of a heart that had wast cd its decpest, faohcst lovc on ono who lookcd upon itas a stranger when he would almost wish to prcss hcr snowy hand to his lipj, his hcart, and tcll hcr that he loved hcr, guilty thougli'it might be. Then thc sorrowful facc of hcr who had trusted love" and life to him would float before his vision, and he would turn from thc bcautiful, but crring woman at his sidc, and seek tranquillity and safety jn thc sweet prcsenCe of his wife. Yct he still listcncd to the tcmptcr; though for n tiine her imagc would bc banishcd, it was but to return again, and a thousand tim.es more radianttban before, hovcringnear his couch. in tho hush of midnight, contesting still a place in his hcart. Thcn though be saw the featurcs of his wife lovclr in the reposc of calm and innocftnt slumber, he would turn.madly away and al tnost hate her as a bar to his future happi ness. - At last wcakncss and vatillation became guilt. and ho flcd with Eveline Gray to a for eigtr lan'd, Ieaving in her trust and blindness the ircntle Lucv. to whose unsuspecting hcart thc truth camo wiih a terriblc force, that for a time thrcatcntd to destroy the life that hence forth shc ft'lt would bc but a bcrdcn. A life that shc would gladly have yielded could shc have breathcd it oiit upon fiis bosom, chccr ed bv thc thought that his lovc was still her cnArTER iir.

Stand back I will cnter you will drivc mc mad." - Ere tho outstrcfched arm of Eveline could dctain her she had flown by thc astonuhcd at tendants, and with a long cry of mingled joy and tcrror had thrown herself beside the couch, whero palc and cmaciated lay the oncc brilliant Aithur Clare. But she started back wildlv, for thc face of the sleeper was like that of Ihe dcad, and thc feeble breath tbflt still fluttered to and fro disturbed not the bloodlcss lips. "Ob.1 God,hcisdead!

But the hand that for a moment no had fecbly clasped was again released, and he shuddered nnd moaned as he turned from the deep gaze ol those love-li: eyes. The thought of his grcat sin came lo him, and he felt it was not his right toclasp that dearhand and to listcn to words ofleve and tenderncs3 from hcr whom he had so wronged.

Holy and bcautiful was Ihcpicturc, show ingforth woman'slove triumphingover pride and cruel desertion. And though Eveline Gray would have disturbed it, she dared not, but shrank back,for even bcr haughty spirit quaneu beiore thescene that met hcr zaze Thc golden rrys of one of Italy's most glori ous sunsets had stolcn in nnd lingered about the couch of the dyintr man. The head of Arthur rested upon thc bosom of his wifr, and his dark spiritual cyes were fixed upon ber, as it he feared that her presencewas a blistlul aelusioD, that would vanish witn nu waking ; and she, with the tun'jeams restiog in the golden curls that fell over them both at a halo, and her sofi, blue eyes peaceful and serene, seemed as aguardian angcl come to chcer the last momenis of him who would soon depart for a far land.

Is not forgivencss thc holiest principlc of human lovc t READING ALOUD. A book is ten-fold a book, when read in the company of beloved friend?, by the ruddv fire. on the wmtrv eveninc; and np commentaries, or notes Variorvm, are comparable to the interruptcd sayings o the wife and sister, or the merry ejacula tions of the littening child. A good voicc, a just intouation, and a quret but animatcd delivery, secure far more of the soul of the great author, than any amount of closet studp. It is delishtful to feel that the delinht is shared by so many. There is frugality of timein reading good books aloud. I he matron goes on witli her stocking; the girls,ply the nimble nccdle; Jack and iom work away at carving and joinery ; the very child that rolls on the carpet or plays with puss is unimpcded in his pursuits: all the while the stream of knowledge and enlertain ment is gently ffowing into the wakeful ear. Glances from bright eyes, smiles, and lauzhter, or perhaps thc sigh and tear, bear witness to the stroke of wit, or the touch of palhos. To make a pleas tire, otherwise solitary, one of social love, is to exalt it ; this takes place when some stirring old history is read aloud in the family group. Ancient stories wf re made to bc orally delivered : among theGreeks, we know, they were pronounced befoie thousands: amonjrthellomans, in crowd ed saloons of the great ; it is little et.ough if we do the like by our hresides. Poetry, which by its numbers addresses itself directly to the ear.is robbed of half its cliarms if ncrustd in silence. The taste for rhythmical composition is awa kened and cultivated by social reading. The legend goes home to.he imaginalion with accumulated force when uttered by a beloved voice. There is magic in the human organ, which the dead letterofthe pace can never rival, and which Ieaves deep traces on the memory. .Though the great poet writes it for solitary lucubra tion, I woujd claim it also for the domes tic circle, to rise on the wings of 'genius, when tragedy - - "In aceptred pall comef rwecpin; by, Precnting Thebes, or Pclopa' line, Or the tale of Troy dirine, Or Vrat (though rare) of later ayo Eanobled hath the buikinrd taf e." " Whq does not remember some illumih ed evening, in which faces, now removed, shone more brightly at the recital of some great action, and where the thrill of ex quisite awe ran through the entire assem blage of.hearts in unison? For such en joyments, tve might be willing to sacrifice a few ho'urs of recluse literaiire, which but for tbese interruptibns, might grow moody, selfish and unfruitful. Let us bathe our intellectual pleasures in domes- tic afTectiftn. So rich are the stores of written lening, that we may, on these sacrcd occions, deal chiefly whh.rflas- V terpieces; the chotce morsels of human wisdom. Selection is more apt to be guarded, aud equirocaf matter is more sure to he biinished, where the wife and daughter are 1o be listepers. Newark Dauy Adv. The Langoage of pLOWEna. The fair lily is an image of holy innocence ; the purpled rose a figure of heartfelt love ; faith is represenled to us in the blue pas sion flower , hope beams forth from the evergreen, peace from the olive-branch, immortality ttom the immortelle; the cares of life are represenled by the rose mary ; the victory of the spirit by the palm ; modesty bj the blue, fragrant vio-J let ; compassion by the ivy ; tenderncss by the myrtle ; affectionate reminisccnce by the forget-mc-not ; natural histnry and fidelity by the oakleaf; unassutningness by the corn-flower, (the cyane,) and the aurictilas, "how friendly they look upon us with their child-Iikc eyes." Even the dispositions of the human soul are exprcss- ed by flowers. Thus. silent grief is poir- trayed by the weeping-willow, sadness by the angclica. shuddering by the aspen, melancholy by the cypress, desire of meet- insr again by the startwort ; the night smelhn? rocket is a figure qf life, as it stands on the frontiers between light and darkness.
