WEDNESDAY EVE'G, liKC. IS. 1872. fFrom Ihe Maryl-end Farmer.) \OTES OF THE SEASON. TOBACCO. During this month it often happens wo have a long favorable spoil of weather for stripping tobacco and Iho planter ought always to avail himself of it, for it may not •occur, as was tho case last year, until ho is busy with spring or even summer work, lksides it is well to have some part of tho crop ready for tho early shipment in spring, whon tobacco buyers liko to send over tho water samples of tho new crop and to do so are often induced to give a little moro than otherwise they would. THE CLOSE OF THE YEAR. During this month, tho farmer himself has much to occupy profitably his time and thoughts, although ns a general rule it is not so busy a time with tho farm hands. He should close up his accounts, see to the profit and loss, and make his estimates nnd calculations for the coming year—get rid of worthless stock and discharge such of his hands as have not given him satisfaction, that he may have timo during the winter to secure faithful laborers, and procure such stock as will yield him a profit the coming year. Let him sco that bis teams are in good order, the harness strong and vehicles in good repair for winter teaming. See that tho roads which aro to bo much vsed are in a fit condition ; provide his winter's store of beef and mutton and his pork for the year. He can then with com placency await the approach nf the festive season of Christmas, when with a heart overflowing with gratitude to his God, and good will toward his follow man, he will bo prepared to enjoy his "Christmas thing?)" with his family and friends. Provide a large wood pile—il is pleasant to look upon, giving assurance as it does, that it will afford warmth and comfort against the rigorous cold of winter, for "old winter is coming again, alnck ! "How icy and cold l? ho ; He cares not npiu fora shivering back, He's a saucy old chap to white and black. He whistles hi- chills with n wonderful Knack, For he comes from a cold country. A witty old fellow this winter 1-; A mighty old fell iw fnr giee ' He cracks hi-jckes on th« pretty sweet miss. ! The wrinkled old maiden unfit to kiss, And freexes the dew of their Ii ps for—lhis Is the way with such a fellow ate he." DEBT. In closing our toils for the year, kind friends will pardon us for advising them to keep clear of debt. It is an axiom, undis puted, that no farmer can make money and farm successfully if involved with debt. I Among the good resolves for your guidance the coming year, be that you will keep clear of debt, and such as are already so, should determine to free themselves, if it takes half or more of all they have, to ac complish this desirable end. At the present low prices of produce and high prices of labor, no farmer can affcrd to pay six per cent, on a large sum, much less is he able to pay the present ruinous rates of interest, ten to fourteen per cent. Unfortunately, Debt is the com mon curse of our people—it is tho skele ton in most houses—it is tho accursed in cubus that weighs down the energies, pal sies effort, and shackles tho intellect. It mars all pleasure, increases physical pain and mental anguish, and often, to the unre flcctivo and rash, brings ruin, misery and dagradation to tho unfortunate debtor, and it may be, to an innocent nnd helpless household. It therefore behooves every one to avoid it as a moral pestilence and those who are already afflicted should solemnly resolve at all hazards, to bo re lieved of it, the earliest moment possible. The Wife of Joaquin Miller is winning laurels of her own, notwithstand ing the fact that she trades principally on i the fame of her ex-husband. "There is nothing," says the Chicago Tribune, "half so absorbing in all of Joaquin Miller's descriptive verses as his wife's pioturo of that famous visit to Minnie's homo ; how she came out from the modest fisherman's cottage by the sea-side, looked upon hia heels, dignified by his ponderous spurs, a3 he dismounted, and worshipped him; how they floated down tho river in her canoe until tho current threatened to carry them into the open sea, and then how ho bellowed, " Pull, Minnie—for God's sake, pull!" Minnie had thought that nothing would have been grander than to go down to death locked in tho arms of her own true lovo; but subsequent expe rience has taught her to be thankful that the turn of a wave saved her life. She is convinced that Joaquin, who threw off his coat, prepared to jump overboard, would havo swam ashore without her." It is believe by many that Mrs. Miller is more imaginative in her lectures than her poehy ; but at all events, she knows how j to hurt the poet's pride and she does it i keenly and gracefully. And she must j have the fame as well as the money sho craves. "Ono thing is certain," continues the Tribune, "Mrs. Minnie Myrtle Mil ler will need no future Harriet ISeecher Stowe to vindicate her memory. If there is anything which can reconcile Miller's verses to the public, or mako his career in teresting to anybody, it is to bo found in liis wife's lectures—the very opposite of the Caudle school, and a new muck-1 in sa tirical literature. Miller made a mistake when he gave up that woman to listen to the laments ot New York chambermaids. He will never find another liko her." And he fervently hopes, doubtless, he never will. 36-0 TN THE DISTRICT COURT OF TIIE UHil- TED STATES for the Eastern Di-trict of Vir ginia. in the matter of Joseph A.
