To rtiie tubitcco plant early mil iucrr
lullr it a great ireret. Pertoni often Tail tn

tuflicient paint to put in the tobacco teetl J
nor do the make their betla in the right lo

for the rapid growth of the plant. A tobac

rou retort to the moit ingenioui inetnt to
force it to twell and sprout.
The earliest, tot! perhaps the bet mode
of raising tobacco ptanla ia aa follow, t ' '
Prepare a bed 40 fret long and 10' feet
wide, in a warm place where the tan will
help lo enliven the toil j puleerize the ground
thoroughly and deeply, and in the meantime
work a fine manure, free from foul teeila, so
that weedt will not come up among the
plant ; rake down the surface of the bed
monthly and nicely ; and after you have
thus perfected a kind of hot bed not at all
eiprnaive to make and when you are satis
fied that the ground ia warm, or in a iis
factor slate to receive the see', sow it on
he bed al the rate of three ounces for (plat of
round ol the aDove size, nut, centre iw
his: me teeu nrepare it in tne iimowinr ma
neri Put three or four ounces into a lightly J
made woolen bag ; moisten it witn warm i

a warm location. It will soon begin to show
signs of sprotitin;, (it should be watched $)
aud having found out that it ia aiout to gf.
minate. by itt swollen condition ana otner
indication, tow it on your bed in connection
tth two or three quaita ol dry naim or In

be pressrd down with a heavy plank before
sowing teed and never rake in tobacco teed ;
but alter you have distributed it event over

hundred pound roller made for the purpoae,
or Head it in wtin your leei. oumt nrcw n

A RUSSIAN WOLF HUNT.
A distinguished French writer, who has
recently visited Russia, gives the following
graphic ileacription nt a won hunt a sport
ppceasary in that counrrv, to keep down an
animal dangerous, from ita numbers, to hu
man life. . , j- .'.-. -
At an advanced period of winter, when the
wolves become ferocious for want of food,
three or four hunters, each possessed ol a
light double-barrelled gun, Uke their places
in what ia called a troika a species of drosky
drawn by three horsea, from which, and
not from it shape, it geta its name. The
horse in the middle is trained to run in a trot,
and the other two (on the right ami lelt) nev
er quit the gallop. The former trott with
his head low, and it railed the Snow eater;
the other two prance with their heads loose,
and are named the Furies. The whole equip
ment, thus directetl in itt course, presents
the appearance of a fan. A driver who can
be relied on conducts the troika. ,
To the back of the carriaee a younz ho?
is attached by a cord, or for more security,
by a chain, between three and four feet in
length. It it quietly taken in the vehicle to
the entrance of the iorest where the chase .it
to proceed J there it it put on the ground, and
the driver incites the horses, which start off
at a trot and gallop respectively, as we have
mentioned j while the hog, little uaed to tuch
an amusement, raises a cry which toon de
generates into what may be called a lament
ation. At this noise the nearest wolf hos
its note, and seta itself to pursue the hog,
soon followed by two, then by three, and ul
timately, it may be, by fill jr of the brethren.
They all make a rlaita for the poor hog, and
filit among themselves to get at it ; some of
them stretching out to it a blow ol their
clawa; and others endeavoring to bite it
The Jamentationt of the poor animal past into
cries of despair, which arouse the wolvea in
the deepest recesses of the forest; they pre
sently congregate from three leagues round,
ad ih troika it pursued by a whole troop
of them.
Then it ia that the urgent need of t good
driver is apparent. The hnraes, which I'tve
an instinctive horror for the wolves, become
intractable ; the trotter in the middle tries to
fMllon, and the gallopera t get the bit be
tween their teeth. During all this time the
hunter lire at random, there being no need
to take aim. The hog cries, the horse neigh,
I k wolves howl and the gum fire, producing
a hideous concert among them. Tho equip
aie. the hunters, the hog, the troop of wolves,
are involved in a whirlwind which scatter
the snow all around, and looks I ke a cloud
in a storm darting thunder and lightning.
If the driver ia master of hit horses, wild
as the may be, all goes well ; but should
he lose command of them, or th uld the har.
nes slip, or the troika be overset, it is all
oer. Neit dav, two ilays, or eight days
slter, the dfftris ol the vehicle is discovered,
wuh the guna, the carcasset of the hones,
and the large b mes of the hunters and of
the driver.
Last winter Prince R underloik one
of these hunts, and it had nearly proved his,
last. He was, aloog with his friends, at one
ol his estates, which borders at a wilderness,
and thev resolved M have a chase of the
wolves, or rather, it ma be said, to be chased
by them. A targe sleigh was got ready, in
winch three persons could move at ease;
three strong horses were yoked to it, and it
was intrn-ted to a driver of great experi
ence a native uf the district. Each hunter
had a pair of double-barrelled guns anil five
hundred bull cartndges n-l Jdaeei
back, and hi friends each to the tide of the
wrrr ia ir '""i r .--. -
sleigh.
Vfht they anived at the ground-an '
nae desert rovered with anow. Th.
At
foil , n hown hriehtl. aod itt ray, re-
frscted bv the white surface, spread a light
like lhat .".r day. The hog was attached and
the train tt.rted. Finding itself down in
spite of itt efforts, it raised a cry, whereup.
Z aome of the woivet appeared-not many
v.. w . ,r
at first, timid also, anil keep ng at a great
distance. Gradually their number increased.
and they approached the hunter, who com
menced by giving their troika an ordinary
ooeareti to cet
ed in number by about a half. Id tact, con
trary to th geueral belief lhat wolves do not
feed on one another, seven or eight starving
ones had stopped behind to devour their dead
companian, but the vacancy wa soon p-
filled. On all sides howling replied to how
ing, and all around were aeen pointed poset
and eye. sparkling like carbuncles. The
animal were within gun shot, and the hun
ters made a running fire, but t'tough every
sht took tffert, the b.nil.to far from dunin
ithine rather gut larger. It soon, ceased to

approached unceasingly, and did not retreat
before the fire of the three hunters, well kept

crescent en the buck of the troika, the two
horns of which began to get in advance of the
horses, and the number increased so rapidly
that it actually neemeil as if they sprung out
of the ground. There was something fautas.
tie in their appearance, and it b-rame quite
impossible to count the numbers now show
ing themselves in a desert where it was in
general difficult to see more than two or three
in a day. The hog had ceased to cry, and
had been taken again into the sleigh, wirre,
its cries re-enmrneneinj redoubled (he bold
nets of the wolves. The firing did not cease,
and half the ammunition was tm expended.
There remained, perhaps, about two hundred
balls. The two horn of the crescent got
nigher and nigher, and threatened the fume,
tion of a circle, inclosing sleigh, horses and
hunter. ' ' ' - .
Should any one of the horsea fall, all would
be over ; anil already terrified, they seemed
to breathe fire; and pranced most furiously
and wildl.
What think you of this, Ivan ?" said th
Prince to his driver.
" Why, I don't much like it, Princp."
Are you alra'ul of anything?
"The wnlvet have tasted blood, and (he,
longer you keep firing, the more will the
number increase."
What do vno adviser
"If you will allow it, Piince, I will s'ack-
en the bridle of my horses.'
" Are you sure of them ? '
I will answer lor them.
" And you will answer for us loo?"
Ivan made no reply, it being evident that
he did not wish to commit himself. He
slackened the bridle, directing at the same
time the heads of the horses towards Ihe
Prioce't chateau; and the noble animils,
feeling themselves at if loosened from the e
biele, goaded b terror, redoubled their speed.
The apace seemed literally to become anm
hilated be lore their desperate eifnts. Ivan
urged theme'ill farther by a sharp whistle,
while they tt the aame time described a curve,
which cut off one of the corners of the horn.
Happily, the wolves opened to let the horses
pass, a'nd the hunter were preparing for
further operations I when the driver eiciaim
ed, " For your lives, don't fie I" They
obeyed. The wolvea, perplexed by thi un
expected manceuvre, d iring this instant the
troika gained a cotia'derade distance. When
the wolves resumed the pursuit, it wat too
late ; they could not overtake the vehicle.
A quarter of an hour afierwmd they wet
in tight of their chateau.
Next mornm the Princo iited the t'ene
of hit exploits, when h- found the e.!tcae
of more than to hundred woIe.

nt the area up to the tlirnne. One by one the
eirdinala swept across the church, sscended
the steps, kissed the Pope's hand and the
hem ol his garment, and presented the long
Mao caudles to be blessed. After a suffi
cient number had been presented by them,
tnd others lo be thus consecrated, the P"ps
was again raised op, the processino, form 1

At the close, the poor old Pope, who looked
much wearied, was for the third time raised
up, and, followed by tho same ilazilinj; pro
cession carried down the church to the siilu
chapel which comtnunicatea with the Vati-
'ran. As they tlowly traversed " the fields

the pavement of this vast, vast edifice., the
Catholics everywhere bent their knes as to
