I REF LECTIONS) «* Such arftMltorate the hnit, * Compote the passions and exalt the mind.'1 Human Grandeur.—The faithful mirror of History reflects few objects eo frequently and so strikingly as the instability of human grandeur. The votary of pleasure, while he pursues the ever delusive phantom of earthly happi ness, may forget, although he cannot a void seeing, that the glory of this world is transitory and fleeting. But the eye of the true philosopher, intent upon far different objects, discovers deeply en graven upon every act of man, “ morta lia facto peribunt." Whether he looks hack to the creation of the world) or whether he looks forward as far as tin prophetic ken can r3ach, he sees the same immutable decree operating upon the deeds ot the great and the small, the rich and the poor “ mortalia facta peribunt."—The picture of antiquity is to him a sad aud gloomy one. Far in the background, and shrouded in al most impenetrable darkness, appear the faint and shadowy outlines of the ante deluvian world. A little nearer, but equally dark and obscure, the ruins of the Tower of Confusion exhibit an hu muliating example of the short-sighted ambition of mankind. The massive walls, the ever-during gates of Babylon and Ninevah have long since crumbled into dust, and uncertainty has spread her mantle over the places where they stood. The wanderiug Arab and the bigoted Turk are now lording it over the Holy Sepulchre, and the crescent of the Moslem now glitters in the pride of conquest «hurc once the Cross of the Christian beamed its peaceful light. The temple of Jehovah has sunk be neath the Mosque of Mohammed, and the lamps of Islamism now illume the place where once the Shechihah shone. Whither has fled the glory of Ezpyt, once the cradle of the arts and scien ces? Where ore her priests, from whose minds once emanated the light of knowledge? Where her reuowned schools, once the nurseries of W'sdom ? Her glory has fled before the storm of barbarism, her wise men have yielded to the stiong arm of oppression, and the impure and contaminating influence of Ignorance and Superstition now flow in an overwhelming tide over that once fair and happy land. Her works of art are fast falling to destruction, and the tiine-defying pyramids Htand only to proclaim the lolly of their builders, whose very names they could not res cue from oblivion. Who can behold with indifference the fate of Greece, the theatre in which have appeared the most illustrious or naments of our species, in which have been exhibited the noblest actions of which our nature is capable. Review her history. Look back upon the won derful spectacle of past ages. See the fire of patriotism, as it burned in the bosom of Miltiades and Leo nidas, and spread with sympathetic rap-idiiy tliro’ the hearts of the sons of Si thens and Lacedaemon, immortalizing the names of Marathon and Thermopyhe. Listen to the heaveminspired eloquence of Pericles and Demosthenes, cheering the laint-hearted, giving new courage to the dispirited, and nerving the arm of the brave with fresh and redoubled vigor. Survey the splendor and mag nificence of her temples, at once mon uments of the inimitable skill of her ar tists and the boundless munificence of her children. What is Gteoce nowl We have heard of ancient Rome.— We have read of her triumphal arches, her Capitol, her Forum. The chroni cles of olden times tell us of magnificent palaces, of spacious amphitheatres; but where are they ? The effeminate Ita lian walks unconsciously over the ruin ed labors ol antiquity. The splendid column, the enchanting statue, would have slept forever beneath the dust, but for the eager hand of curiosity, or the unexpected interposition of chance.— The spade and the plough often bring to light monuments of ancient skill and ancient luxury, which tell the astonish ed peasant of a people once the lords of the earth, now living only on the page of history. But this is not all. Man himself is passing to the grave. There have been Alexanders, Hannibals, and Caesars. There have lived mighty warriors and wise statesmen. But their names only have survived. Their lives and their achievements seem to us but the fictions of a dream. They whprn, when alive, the world could hardly contain, are now as though ihev had never been. Such is a faint sketch of the picture which History present* to ihe contem plative beholder. Such the reflection which the mirror of the past exhibits to his eye. • With this experience he can look forward' and discover similar pros pects rising in swift succession in the approaching future. He can imagine the time when the great, the wise, the exalted, of his own day shall be forgot ten; when others shall appear and sport their short hour upon the stage of life, and then, in their turn, fall into oblivi on. He cannot anticipate the time when " The cloud-ccptiowera, the gorgeou* palaces, Tbe solemn tern dee, the (real globes itself, Vea, all which hbortt, shall dissolve, And, like the >meif fabric of a vWion, Imn aotowrmfc bshlud." ; N. E. W. Review. Infant's Sleep.—Dr. James Wilson, in a paper upon '‘Afflictions of the Heart,’ read some weeks since before the Royal College of Physicians, in dulged in the following strain, in speaking of an infant’s sleep : ('So motionless is its slumbers, that in watching it, we tremble, and become impatient for some stu or sound, that may assure us or its life; yet is the fan cy of the little sleeper busy, and every artery, and every pulse of its frame en gaged in the work of growth and secre tion though bis breath would uot stir the smallest instinct that sported on his lip—though his pulse would uot lift the flower leaf of which he dreamed, ftom his bosom—yet following this emblem of tranquility into atter-life, we see him exposed to every climate—contending with every obstacle—agitated by every passion, and under these various cir cumstances, how different is the power and degree of tbe heart’s action which has not only to beat, but to “beat time” through every moment of a long and troubled life.*’ HUSBANDRY. The American Farmer.—The lol lowing bea*itilul anil eloquent passage is from Air. Biddle’s Address be lore the Philadelphia Society fur promoting Agriculture:—* / ** It 1 have failed to prove that the pursuits ot Agriculture may be as lu crative as other employments,!: will be au easier task to vindicate then plea sures and their importance, i need not dwell on that retirement, one of the purest enjoyments of this hie and the best prepaiation loi the future, on those healthful occupations, on the calmness of mind, on that high spirit of manli ness and independence which uaturally b. long to that condition. These are attractions which must have deep root in the human heart, since they have at all fastened at once the imaginatiun and won the judgment of men. But 1 may be allowed to say, that in this nation agriculture is probably destined to re ceive its highest honours, and that the country lite of America ought to pos sess peculiar attractions. The pure and splendid institutions of this people have embodied the brightest dreams of those high spirits, who in other times and in other lauds have lamented or struggled against oppiessiun ; they have realized the tine conceptions which speculative men have imagined, which wise men have planned, or brave men vainly perished in attempting to establish. Their influence in reclaim ing the lost dignity of mail, inspiring the loftiest feelings of personal inde pendence may be traced in every con dition of our citizens; but as all ob jects are more distinct by insulation, their effects are peculiarly obvious in the country. "The American farmer is ine ex clusive, absolute, uncontrolled proprie tor of the soil. His tenure is not from the government; the government de rives its power from him. There is a hove him nothing but God and the laws; no hereditary authority usurping the distinctions of personal genius; no established church spreading its daik shadows between him and heaven.— His frugal government neither desires nor dares to oppress the soil: and the altars of religion are supported only by the voluntary offerings of sincere pie ty. His pursuits, which no perversion can render injurious to any, are direc ted to the common benefit of all. In multiplying the bounties of Providence, in the improvement and embellishment of the soil, in the care of inferior ani mals committed to his charge, he will find an ever varying and interesting employment, dignified by the union of liberal studies, and enlivened by the exercise of a simple and generous hos pitality. His character assumes a lof tier interest by its influence over the public liberty. It may n *t be foretold to what danger thiscoutitry is destined, when its swelling population, its expan ded territory, and its daily complica ting interests, shall awake the latent passions of men, and reveal the vulne rable points of our institutions. But whenever these perils come its most steadfast security, unfailing reliance, will be on the column of landed pro prietors, the men of the soil and of the country, standing aloof from the pas sions which agitate the denser part of communities, well educated, brave and independent, the friends of the govern ment without soliciting its favors, the advocates of the people without de scending to flatter the«r passions ; these men, rooted like their own forests, may yet interpose between the factions of the country, to heal, to defend and to save/* TOPPING AND PULLING FOD DER FROM INDIAN CORN. “Mr. Bordly says he has stripped the blades, and cut off the tops, when the corn wis‘ nearly soft enough for roasting ears, and that no difference was observed between this and the rest.” ] f the gentleman W*<1 mewurtd ths product, would have seen a mat ked difference. It was discovered early in August, 1810, that proper grasses for grazing cattle would soon be very deficient ; and on the 20th of that month, one row of corn in a field of 13 acres was topi>ed to ascertain how the plant would hear early cutting. It was thought it had received no injury. On the 31st of the same month 1 re commenced feeding the cattle with the tops cut daily as wanted. These last ed until the 18th September.—After this the blades were stripped, commen cing where the topping began They fed the cattle until the 15th of October, In the process of lopping and blading, one row was left entire, standing be tween the tow whicli had been topped on the 20th of August, and another row that was topped on the 2d Septem ber. These three rows were cut off by the roots on the 2d of October, and hauled in and set up separately, under my own inspection. They were busK ked and measured on the 8th of No vember Produce of the row that had not been topped and stripped, nine bushels aud five eighths of corn in the One of the rows which had been topped and stripped measured seven bushels and six eights; and the other topped and stripped row measured se ven bushels and three eights of corn in the ear. Thus it clearly appears that mutilating the corn plant before its Iruit is perfected, is a very injurious practice. The injury done to my crop by this management was cleat ly seen some time before the three experimen tal rows were cut off. Throughout the whole field the husks weie generally dry and open, except on the row which had not been topped and stripped.—On this they still retained a greenish hue and were close set to the ear, when the plants were cut off by the roots. As several writers on agriculture had asserted 'hat the tops of potatoes might be cui and given to the cattle without injury to tho crop, I cut off the tops Iroin a row running through ti e middle ol a very luxuriant patch. Care was taken to cut them in that which was supposed least likely to prove injurious to the future growth of the plants.— The debilitated appearance of the sec ond growth of the tops determined me not to risk a second cutting ol them.— YVhen the crop was gathered,the roots in the row that had been cut did not seem to be more than half as large as those in the rest of the patch. In fact 1 have seen any advantage arise either from carefully trimming, or ruggedly mutilating annual plants: on the con trary much injury certainly follows.— So far this intelligent and practical far mer.—Lorain, chap. xiii. p. 159. Cider.—As the time for laying in Cider has come,. I would observe, that Mustard Send put into new cider will keep it much better than any other thing [ have tried. 1 put a half pint common mustard seed into a barrel of new cider, last fall, and let it remain on the lees without drawing off, till it was used) and it kept it perfectly sweet till the last—not the new sickly sweet, but more like mellow old wine : the cider tasted a little of the mustard, but some gentlemen who drank of it, thought it was improved by it. As the last year was the first time l put in the seed, I cannot say that it will always have the Bane effect: but so simple a thing is worth trying—for my cider was deci dedly the best I eve: drank.—Newbu ry port Herald.

Mercer, a writer for the American Farniet,ih a communication republished in the New England Farmer, vut. v. page 187, atatea that he had much improved, the genuine I uaoarora corn by nerer plant* ing a gram that xvaa selected in the fields (for font or fiveyears past) trom those (-talks which produce two or more ears. Joseph Cooper Esq. of j New Jersey, in a letter to a gentleman ' »n Philadelphia, states that, **a friend sent me a few grains of a smaller kind ot Indian coin, the grains ol which were not larger than goose shot, which he informed tne by the note in which they were enc-osed, were originally from Guina, and produced from eight to tun ears on a stalk —*£hosH grains I planted, and found the production to answer the description, but fie ears small, and lew of them ripe before frost. I saved so lie of the I irgest ■ lid earliest, and planted it between rows of earli* r k n la of corn which produced a inixtme to an advantage; then I saved *e“d from the stales t mi produced the the greatest number 01 the largest ears, and first ripe, which I plante1 the ensuing season, and wm not a little gratified to find its produc tion preferable both in qnamtiy am quality to that of any coin I had etc planted.—This kind of c»ru I have continued planting ever since, select ing that desiogci for seed in the mao net 1 would wish others to try, viz. When the first ears are ripe enough for seed, gather a sufficient quantity for early replanting; and at the time you would wish your corn to be ripe gener* ally, gather a sufficient quantity, for planting next year, having particular care to take it from stalks that are largeai omiom.oi a regular taper, not over tall, the ears set low, and con taining the greatest number of good sizeable ears of the besl quality ; let it dry speedily; and from the corn gather ed as last described plant your main crop, and if any hills should be mis sing, replant from that first gathered, which will cause the crop to ripen more regularly than is common which is a great benefit. The above I have practised many years, and am satisfied it has increased the quantity, and improved the quality of my crops beyond what any p^r-on would imagine, who has not tried the experiments.” The Lima Cci-oa Nut Squash ha« grown twenty-two inches in length, in the gardens of J.
