Instead of the blind and brutal artu ■ p intent of war. .Mi. \'incent remarked that ha had pawed lour limes through the United States, spend ing nearly tlncc years in that country, nd :_ hvc hiiitdroil public assemblies in all parts of it, and that he never referred to the bad blood that hud been created between I'.ngland and America, and to the great lia- j ditions of the two countries, to their com munity of language, of literature or liberty, i without awakening in ihe breasts of the American people those emotions that will always respond 'to kindly endeavors to living the people and the governments of the two countries together in the strongest bowk of esteem and affection. TllE farmers of the Western Stales are becoming seriously a'anucd in regard to the | ravages of the potato bug, and not without ;.io,| reason. Colonel Fricdrich Ilcrker, a | scientific fanner of Belleville, Illinois, who ha- been Investigating the matter, says the hug is a native of the canons of the Rocky Mountains, where it feeds on the wild pota to. It left its original haunts in 1864, and is traveling eastward at the rate of about one hundred and fifty miles a year. It has already reached the Alleghany Mountains, the line of its march being over lowa, Northern Illinois, Indiana, Michigan and Ohio ; aud wherever the potato is found in | abundance this destructive iusect is likely I lo make its way in time, though it docs not thrive in a southern climate. Harper's Monthly for July is an ex cellent number. "The Mount Cenis Tun- j nel," and "Florida Kcefs" are two very j fine articles. The illustrations of both are unsurpassed. "Anteros" is continued. | "When this Old Flag Was New" is a stir- j •ring illustrated poem by R, 11. Stoddard. 1 "The Climate of the Lake region" is a very valuable paper, illustrated by maps, show ing the meteorological peculiarities around the great lakes.

Kditor : 1 have for several years attentively observed the depredations of an insect which attacks the foliage of the pear tree, and tried nitniciTO—i remedies for their de struction, without success, until I few ycais ago. If not arrested in their ravages, the entire foliage of the trees will cerlaiuh be consumed by these ravneious pests, giving : to them the appearance of having been ; burnt, and rendering them anything else but objects of admiration or profit. This insect is a small, wedge-shaped, green •potted worm, averaging from a quarter en a half inch in length, and has a repulsive appearance. Their annual visit to me is about the first of June, and, unless exter minated, remain as long as there is any foliage left. A strong solution of soft soap, freely applied to the foliage, will cer tainly destroy them, and preserve not only the lieauty of the trees, but the fruit also. The pleasure of this discovery is enhanced by enabling others, through the medium of your valuable paper, to protect their trees ftcm their ravages. AMATEt'R. OIiSERVATION <>!■' TIII'NDER STORMS. Professor Joseph Henry, secretary of the | Smithsonian Institution, has just sent to | many persons in various pacts of the conn- j try the following guide for the observation of thunder storms, with a view to the ad vancement of science : 1. Give time of beginning and ending of < the storm. 2. Give the general direction of the ap proach of the storm, or the point of the , horizon where the storm cloud first appears. ;!. I Jive the direction of the wind before, at the time of, and after the storm. I. Note the color of the lightning, pai liculnrly if it be violent, which probably ii - , dicates a cloud of great elevation. 5, Does the thunder cloud frequently -eparato into two parts near your Nat deooe '.' If so, what is the topography « the surface of the earth below ? (',. Record every instance of the sirilmg of trees and othei' objects, and every acci dent by lightning in V'Uir vicinity. 7. Note the number of seconds the sound of a discharge continues ; this will give ap proximately the length of the flash. * 8. Note the time betwoen the appearance of the Hash and the hearing of the thunder; also the angle of elevation ; these will give approximately the height of the cloud.
