V -:, Tlte qneitioit of applying the usual dome. tic or bam ntanurft to corn, ia the hill at planting, or over, the whole gurlace before that time, it one which we' hate nut seen particularly discussed in our agricultural journals, though often mentioned at practf. ced or vice vtria, in account oi me cuuurn of this grain. ,From observation, on thii point, we conclude it more common in New Hampshire than elsewhere, where indeed if was learned from tht aboriginal corn-giow-eri. We have heretofore, from results in our eiperience, recommended manuring iq the hill, in addition to a good dressing over the whole field, aa productive of an essential improvement in the crop giving an earlier and etronger start, which start advance it keep through the whole period of growth. , Some experiments in corn-growing, com paring hill manuring with its application over the whole surface, are given bv Mr. Ba ker of Oak Hill, in a recent N. E. Farmer and thinking it will interest, we condense the same for our readers. Five plots cf an acre each, were planted the last of May. On the first, twenty loads of long manure was spread and plowed under eight inches deep. On the second, ten loads of fine barn-jsrd manure were spread en the aurface after plowing, and thoroughly harrowed , before marking. The third acre was manured in the hills two quarts of very fine stable ma nure .to each. The fourth received in the hill, one qart of compost two parts muck, -I. . A. r 4 I . - . r ,nanurf ; and on, part eac, of jime gnj 4hea. The filth acre, lor the pur- pe of comparison, received no manure. The kind of corn planted was the yellow smut or red blaze, the kernal of which is large and flat, and the ear good size. Ma king no account of the soft corn, it produced as follows $ No. I, 84 bunhel of ears) No. 2. GO bushels t No- S. 99 bushels ; .No. 4, 95 bushels t No. ft. 08 bushels. From these re sults, he concluded that lur present proni.i manuring in the hills ia the best, and de composed barn manure harrowed in, produ ces more effect than green dung plowed un derat least on the first crop. Most commercial manure, as guano, u pernhosphates, poudrette, Le., have been applied in tne niil exclusively, an - nave no means of comparison of the effect of the same broadcast. Of fertilizers of domestic production, hen manure ha more generally been applied in the bill for corn than any rr .. ... - -. other material. It IS pieninui, oi a concro-. trated character, and readily prepared and applied, while there can be no question as to the profit arising from its judicious use. A hinted before, this manure and others of like chsracter, give the youna shoots sn early and vigorous start, snd enable it the sooner te strengthen itself, by extending its roots to more distant stores of fond. , The effect of msnorinz in the hill exclu sively, would seem to be les calculated to benefit the whole ground, though the active and thoroughly decomposed character of the fertilisers thus would lesve little benefit to be expected the second year. But we leave the question with our readers, simply re marling, that , while we would commend plentiful broadcast manuring in all cases, we would also advise the application of some concentrated lertili.er in the hill, believing it will in aU cases prove profitable by for wsrding and increasing the crop. Indian corn cannot well be surfeited by high feed ingand above mst grains, uses and re pays a pientilul supply. Prtiru Farmer, A Ne ? BiBi n Is-t acE.

Mot that the lady was low-bred enough to be in a passion, but the lips set firmly together, the tip of the little slipper pressed hard upon the foot stool, and the haughty carriage of the head, showed plainly enough that the lady's proud spirit was up. The story was a very simple onet : ; . ," V-A .-., : . Mrs. Lascelles, like all handsome women, and aome who are not handsome, loved dress, and Mr. L. didn't like the expense. Mra. L. ordered a new bonnet every season, and my lord thought it extravagant; Mrs. L. sel dom wore the same evening dress more than pnee, and though her husband admired the "pfl'ect as much as any one, he groaned ever the bills that came in, atterward. Mra. la, thought she could wear only the freshest gloves, and, certainly, no little hand ever looked so neat and pretty as hers, but then "gloves 81 gloves 87 cent.," were scat tered, thick as hail, all over the bill. Mr. L. once took the trouble of caantine up the cost of them for ail months, and thought, forever afterwards, that kid gloves were the ruin of him and the country. Mrs. L. seldom went out in anything but ilk, and that none of the cheapest, Mrs. L. wore the finest laces and muslins, the most rtthtrcht handkerchiefs of any lady ia her circle ; but then it costs something to be the best dressed lady of your set, when the set is rather a rich one, and Mr. Lascelles made up his mind over his third cigar, that he couldn't aud wouldn't atand it any longer. to I here was an explosion after breakfast, in which the gentleman bore the principal part. He hadn't intended to say anything unkind or untrue, but he warmed up with the subject, and did say many things that, before he got half way to his store, he would gladly have taken back. He was all the more annoyed, because nis wife had said no thing untif he had threatened that be would pay no more bills of her contracting, when a haughty, "as you please, sir," escaped her. &he had heard all me reproaches aooui the silks, glove, laces, and bonnets, bein the ruin of him, crippling his means, an lit-lninr fn ruin tha country, and vitiate the public taste, all in profound silence, but her haughtv coldness of manner rather daunted him ; he wished he had governed his temper a ii i ii c oeuer; out men ue nan sam nouung but the truih. Had he said nothing but the truth? It was a stormy day, no business wss doing, and Mr. Lascelles had a chance to think of it. - Was it a fact that her extravagance had crippled his means True, she spent a large sum every year, say a thousand ; but wasn't he re ill v able to allord her tnst r iiatin i ne ; lost ten times that sum only a week before, j by endorsing a questionable note, that a pro- nent man wouia not nave pui ma pen wr Wasn't that something like extravagance f Hadn't he gone ami put np a fine store with marble front and plate glass windows only because his neighbors did the same, when the old brick one answered his porposes just ss well, and the new one had drained his purse out more than a hundred bills ? Didn't he nut his name down for one hundred here, and two hundred there, and five hundred in another place, solely to keep up a reputation for wealth and liberality, and was it not aa much a vaoitv as the love of a new bonnet t Were nut many of his business speculations pves, ana cigar. r ...a u J or gentlemen to wear he not pay as much for it as his wife now u,d? . Mr. Lscclles conscience told him some , ... .l. t. very plain truths, and he grew more and more uncmforUble. Ue didn't like to think of whst he hsd said le his wife, for he hsd certainly said sums very harsh things, and even il sue were in lauit, sne migrii reasona bly be angry. Now, Mr. Lascelles stood a little in awe of his wife not on account of any trou. ble they had ever had, for they always lived very harmoniously together, or ef any vio lence of temper, for no one could be sweeter, but simple because of her perfect self-command. Whatever the provocation, ae one ever saw the lady out ef temper. You might catch a flash from her beautiful eyes, or see Ihe color deepen in the delicste cheek, but tha voire ... iu.t as calm and soft, the words iust as courteous as eer. Yet. Mr. L. had . .. , - - - . - testimony that she never forgot an offence, and he was desperately afraid that she would nut soon forgive this ene. ' Confound it all ! I wish she'd Ire ap, and scold like some womea, and then cry, and forget all about it," he said te himself, as he sillied out of his counting room. He went home, very dignified and reso lute, outside, very anxious and troubled with in but there was company la dinner, and Mrs. L. was gracious In all, and very much eng'grd with her gursts, and he went away in better spirits. la tha ovenin there was eomrtanv also. and Mra.

He ventured te praise her execution of ana piece that ha loved, and htr bow ol acknowledgment, and polite " I am happy to have pleased yoe," were the acme of gentle csurteay, but they fell coldly en his heart.

He'd make her sorry for it, any way. so ne mrieu wun a very pretty girl among the company, and took no further notice of his wife. Of course that was not the way to be reconciled, ao aothing was said but what the merest civility required, and day after day they met more coldly and more po litely than tne last. "I'll be haneed if I five on fii-t." mut tered the gentleman to himself. ''1..

Hut sulking was desperately hard work for Mr. Lascelles. He loved his wife dearly, and loved to tell her of it sometimes. None the less agreeable was it1o be told occasion ally in her graceful, pretty way, that he was a good teiiow, ana an tne worm to ner, Mer polite good morning, was a poor exchange lor the extra kiss he used to go back for, or the one she sometimes came to the street door to claim.

When they sat with the table between them, he with his paper ahe with her work or book. he would forget the European news in think ing how she used to sit upon his knee, with her white arms round his neck. Alas! there was more than a table between thera now. Then as weeka passed by, he began to think she must be wanting some money. They bad been to several parties where she had worn old dresses, and he tud tt much too much pride and taste to feel at ail eaiii.fie.1 when she was ill-dressed. He wihed she would ask for some moneys but he did not like to humble himself by offering it. At length he resolved that he would do so at any rate. So be put on the moat indifferent lace in the world, one morning, and took some bills from his purse. " 1 think you most want some money," he uid, handing them across the table. I o hie surprise ahe put them back, very gently, but decidedly. Itl thank you, but I don't care for it," was all she said t but it chilled him mure than anv passionate word would have done. lie said " very well," put the money back, and went out; out he could scarcely choke down a eery bitter sigh. What would he not have given then for the old confidence ? Thus a few more weeks passed away, and Mr. Lascelles could not help wondering it his wife felt as miserable as he did. Wheth er she nude believe sleep at night when ahe was really lying awake and feeling as wretched, as he did ; wiietner site choked down dinners ahe didn't went, and sobs that wanted to come; whether she ever lunged to thru her arms round him and be recon cited, as he longed to have her.
