knowledge! ents lo the \\ esterr. C >ntinent for some beau, i
tifal extracts that we have taken from i's columns. In
the number tor last week we find the following poem,
which the reader will peruse wkh pleasure, and, we caa-,
Lot doubt, confirm the taste which selected it :
A Hebrew knelt in the dying light;
His eye was dim and cold;
The hairs »»n his brow were silver whit#,
And his *Und was thin and old;
He lifted his bo« k to his latest aun,
. Fof lie knew that his pilgrimage waa don#;
And as he saw G"d’s shadow* there,
Hi* spirit poured itself out in prayer.
"I corne unto Death’s second birth.
Beneath a stranger air, ,
A pilgrim on a dull c Id earth,
As all my fathers were;
And m^ii have stamp 'd ine with a
1 feel it is not Thine,
Thy mercy, iik»' y-n son, was mad#
On me as tnern to shine;
And iheref-re dare 1 lift mine eye
Through that to Thee, betore 1 dit.'
In this great temple built by Thee.
W hose altars are divine,—
Beneath yon lamp, that carelessly 1
Eights up I . me own trne slirin#,—*
Oh take tny lrest >:i**rifi ••• '
Look down ar.d make this sod
Holy as that, where, long ago.
The Hebrew met ins God.
I have not caused the wid >w ’• tear*.
Nor dimmed the orphan’s eye; 1
I have not stained the virgin’*year*.
Nor mocked the mourner’s cry;
The songs of Z in in mine ear*
li^ve ever been uv»st sweet,
And always when 1 felt The# neap.
'.My shoes were « tl my feet.”
I have known Tnee in tlie whirlwind, '
I have know Thee on tlie liiM, 1
I have Known Thee in the vuic# of bird.
Hr the music of the rill;
I dreamed Thee in ti.e shadow,
1 saw Thee in the light,
I heard Thee in tl. thunder-peal.
Anil worshipped in the night;
All beany, while i: spoke of The#.
Still made my soul rejoice,
And ;ny spirit bowed within itself. «
To hear Thy ‘still small voice.’ 1
I have not !Ht myselt a thing
Far from Thy presence driven,—* 1
By flaming swmd, ui waving wing*,
IShut out from Thee and Heaven;
Must I the whirlwind reap, becau## y
My fathers sowed the storm ?
Or sink, becausean<uh«T »imwd#
Beneath Thv red right arm ?
Oh ! inucii of this we dimly scan.
And much isa!l unki: >wn, *
But I will not take my curse from ■ #*, j
1 turn to Thee alone !
Oh! bid my fainting spirit live.
And what is dark reveal.
And what is evil, t.li9 forgive,
And what is broken heal!
And cleanse my nature Irons a bo*#
In the deep Jordan of Thy to##.
I know not if the Christian9# lieaveo
Shall be the same #s mine***
I only ask to be forgiven.
And taken home to Thin#;
I weary on a far diui strand.
Whose mansion! are a* t>*ml»#.
And long to find the father-lan 1,
Where there ate many homes.
Oh! grant if all yon starry throne#.
Some dim and distant #tar.
Where Judah’# lost and scattered #ue#
May love I'hee from afar.
Where all earth** myriad# harps shall be*i
In choral praise and prayer.

The sun goes dowrr with #udden glean>#
And beautiful a* a lovely dream,
And silently as air,
The vision of a dark-eyed girt.
With long and raven hair.
Glides in as guardian spirits glide.
And lo! is kneeling by his side,—*
As if her sudden presence there
Were sent in answer to his prayet.
(Oh! say they not that angels tread
Around the good man’s dying bed?)
His child—-his sweet, and sinless child!
And as he gaz^’d on her,
He knew his God was reconciled.
And this I lie messenger,
As sur? as God had hung on higla
The promise now before bis eye,
Karih’s purest hope thus o’er him flung.
To poini his heavenward faith,
And life’s most holy feeling strung
To sing him unto death :
And on his daughter’s stainless breasi ^
The dying Hebrew sought his rest.

From (lie Southern Planter.
Mr. Editor—As the time is fast approaching when in
the course ot' farming operations it becomes necessary for 1
the farmer to commence putting all things in order to
cart out his winter supply of manure to be applied to the
com, cotiuti. potato and other summer crops, perhaps it
may not be amiss to give a few hints in regaid to the!
mode of application. There are. I believe, three distinct
modes of application, viz : broadcasting and ploughing in,
eurlace or top dressing, and drilling. Each mode has its
objections, as they are generally practised in these dio
fins. Let me say. Mr. EJitor, in the beginning, that
write not for controversy, my object in writing this1
piece is to pointout, in mv humble dpinion, the errors'
committed by farmers in the application of manure to the I
land and to induce Pi n to test the above named modes :
the present year in ine cul ivalionof the various crops,and '
then let themmake a faithful and impartial report of the
result of his experiment next fail and winter. This is
. the way, Mr. Editor, to make the Planter a more useful
and pridi -al journal. The advocates of broadcasting and
ploughing in, generally carl the manure to the field, de- '
posit it in small heaps, permit u to remain so until they
they liave hauled out their entire supply, then the ate
very busy, all ItanJs employed in spreading the nilnure;
after they have spread (and very frequently very irregu
larlyi the entire numoer of heaps.they commence plough
ing in-der the manure, covering i; from three to four inch- j
es. There are some serious objections to this njode.—
First, the small heaps of manure are frequently exposed
a week or two to the deleterious influence of the sun and
aiv, and frequently a hard shower or tjvo of rain.it is then
spread and the emire body of manure exp-sed for days
before it is ploughed in. Let us examine the land after
it ts ploughed and you will will find here and there hand-1
fills laying exposed between the furrow slices, and it is ^
placed at such a depth that it will be subject to disturb- ‘
snee by the plough throughout ih“ cultivation of the crop.1
Top dressing, although iis advocates may claim that it
is the course pursued by nature in renovating Isnda that
the unskilful hand of liie agriculior has laid barren, yet I
it 's without doubt a slow mode indeed. It cannot ba da
rted that manure duos nut lose more by evaporation than
by sinking. If that is so, why are farmers so blind to
their interest ? If manure sinks, why are farmers afraid
of the dead subsoil ? Ii manure sinks, plough deep and
keep it near the surface—dj not regard the subsoil.—
Drilling nr manuring in the hill, has two serious objec
Ifoiis. F.rs', it is very difficult to obtain a stand of corn,
•otton, or any crop, where much manure has been ap
died in the drill or hill. Secondly, no man can improve j
iis farm when he applies manure in the drill or bill, the I
irop will not be as good as it would be if the manure had ,
lave been broadcasted and ploughed in deep. And if the
irmer wishes to seed down his land in wheat after the
x>rn crop is taken off,the land is not in a projier condition
0 yield a crop of wheat, because there »s only a shovel
ar so of manure for every tour or five teet, and the corn
crop has taken up the greater part of that which was ap
plied. The inquiry will na’urrdly arise, how are we to
apply our manure ? \\ eil, I will give you the mode that
1 generally pnrstie. In the first placd, I “watch and ar
rest the thief, evaporation,” as tar as it is in my power,
at the firm-nard, coir.prst heap, and wherever I make
manure. Having done so in the making and preserving
of my manure, and when the time arrives to cart my ma
nure to the field, having had the field previously laid off
in squares so as to deposit the manure regularly. I com
mence hauling out. After carrying out three rows of
manure, the hands are theii divided so as to h»ad, haul,
spread and plough in at the same time. One, or at most
two, large two-horse ploughs will be sufficient in the
field. Just before the ploughs are ready to start, begin
to spread from either of the outer rows—let a hand fol
low with a basket of plaster and sow it on the manure as
it is spread; then start the ploughs and cut a furrow slice
at least eight inches deep. By adopting this m»»de, the
manure is never exposed m »re than an hour or two.—
Some may object to this plan, because of the quantity of
plaster that will be required. If I have not plaster suffi
nent to use in the field, I use it whilst digging up and
loading-, in the farm-pen—although it will riot answer as
good a purp<ise as when used in the field. From obser
vation and carefully pract sed experiments 1 have become
Convinced that if we will use every means in our power
To preserve our manure fr-m evaporations that we shall
discover mode# of fertilising land beyond our most san
guine Impes.
Fuv fear, Mr. Editor, that f may tire Joif or some of
the readers of your eacelle.it journal, I w ill furbear. I
may »t some future time give you my plan of making
manure from fattening hogs.

Th» e«lt i*«tion uf these roots lias called my attention
fot *>nie time, and as you ask how l raised those.by \ou
called “th# larges! and he*t fiivored you ever saw,” ♦
answer, first, by obtaining good seed. It is a tact wor
thy of much notice, that of all things sweet potatoes have
the worst chance. If we want good corn, we select the
largest ears; if good wheat, no pains is spared to get the
b#st§eed; but one and all unite in eating up all the gtnjd
potatoes, and keep the dwarfs for seed, and the wonder is,
ilwt they have not long since run out. Of the red vari
ety, the seed of which may be had of 8. Dicken, Esq., I
have 6«en twenty-two sprouts from a single eye on a
good siz*^ potato, while the little ones cannot be relied
on for a 9prout for every eye. Potatoes,an inch through,
ar# the smallest that ought to b# used, if perfection is de
sirable. I made my hot bed with about a foot of horse
dung, an inch of earth on top, then lay the potatoes on
this, and earth about on# and a half inches, on the top of
all about one-third or half an inch of fine charcoal, to
catch the gaa and keep in the warmth: the plants start
at onee and are ready forth# first season. Should the
weather not b# absolutely dry, the plants may beset out
any time they are well roofed and watered with black
•bower, or liquid manure of any kind insures the crop.—
The ground is selected where it is light, low and moist,
bu4 not wet. The higher the potatoes are ridged the tall
»r the root*. I hat# raised this kind that firs hill# would
fill a bushel.
I Hever plant potatoes until thirty to fifty bushels of
Itme per acre ar# spread, and after once preparing, ft turn
in the vine# before they are killed and this keep# up ihe
fertility of th# patch.
Since I found out the virtue of lime for this crop, I
h#ve never tailed but once. Then I obtained seed, the
largest of which, was not larger than my little finger,and
most of the rest not halt that size,and you never saw any
thing #o much like Uieir Ueur little parent* in *11 your life
•a this crop wa«.
The remarks of you? youthful correspondent under the
head of “Olla Podrid»,w :n the December number,(who,
by ihe way, need not have signed his name to it, for ev
#ry paragraph carrie* the fullest evidence of it* identity,)
reminds me of an incident in the Congressional life of
John Randolph. He had made a tall speech on th* sub
ject bef-re the House, and was, as usual, to the point,
when UTi individual,who had several times before snarled
tt him, aro#e,and having made olla podriJa of his speech,

■ rpHK SL’BSl BRIBER begs leave to call the attention of the

Mr. \V. having successfully applied ELECTRICITY to,
his former process ol making Daguerreotypes, is now ena
bled to get the action of Light on the subject,almost instant

Would you give phv-ic t » l NSTOP the pores ! Or
would you apply something that would do this upon the sur

This REMEDY' is probably the only one now known, that
is capable of producing all these great results. Ils great val

checked or deranged by cold or other causes. It preserves
and defends the surface from all derangement of its functions,
while it keeps open the channels for the blood to void all its
