$tlcd |}ori>t ble it be of ggfifcl INDIAN SUMMER, Ju#t before the death of .the Mowers, And before they are buried in the snow, There comes a festival season, When nature is all Rglow— Aglow with a mystical splendor That rivals the brightness of spring—. Aglow with a beauty more tender Than aught which fairsummer could bring. Some spirit akin to the rainbow Then borrows its magical dye, And mantles the fur-spreading landscape In hues that bewilder the eye. The sun from his cloud-pillowcd chamber, Smiles soft on a vision so gay, And dreams that his favorite children, The flowers, have not yet passed away. There's a luminous mist on the mountains, A light, azure haze in the air, Ab if angels, while heavenward soaring, Had left their bright robes flouting there : The breeze is so soft, so caressing, It seems a mute token of love ; And floats to the heart like a blessing From some happy spirit abovo. These days so serene and charming, Awaken a dreamy delight— A tremulous tearful enjoyment, Like soft strains of music at night ; We know they are fading aud fleeing, That quickly, too quickly they'll end ; And we catch them with yearning «flection As at parting we catch u dear friend. Oh ! beautiful Indian Summer ! Thou favorite child of the year— Thou darling whom nature enriches With gifts aud adornments so dear. How fain would we woo thee to liuger On mountains and meadows awhile, For our hearts like the sweet haunts of nature, Rejoice and grow youug in thy smile. Not alone to the sad fields of Autumn, Dost thou a lost brightness restore ; But thou bringest a world-weary spirit Sweet dreams of its childhood once more. Thy loveliness tills me with memories Of all that was brighter and best— Thy peace and serenity offer A foretaste of heavenly rest. ft)ur (Dlia. SUNSET. One of the grandest and most artistic of the varied and multitudinous scenes pain ted by Nature, is that of a glorious sun set. Have you not often stood and watched the fleecy clouds, bathed iu goldcu glory, surrounding the fiery orb of light, as he slowly sinks to his resting place? And the royal purple, the gorgeous gold, the magnificent scarlet, aud the emerald green have mingled together in such harmony, aud blended their soft mellow tints iu such exquisite contrast, without one single shad ow to mar the beauty of the resplendent spectacle ; could you possibly gaze upou the scene without having your thoughts revert to the master-hand of the great Creator of the universe, "who painteth the clouds and calleth the stars by name?" I should imagine that the whole soul of an artist would be thrown into his work when such a picture as this was his con templated study ; and that his feelings and conceptions would be so intensified by the scene that bis work could not possibly prove a failure. Of course we are well aware that no earthly painter, wore be ever so far famed, could equal the stupendous work of the Creator's omnipotent band and only in the faintest degree possible, depict upon the canvas before him, "what nothing less thanangel could describe." It is very plea sant to watch those bright evanescent clouds, continually altering form and as suming new shapes. We might Buppose that Nature had lent each and every uue of her own sublime lues to add enchantment to the picturesque view, and caeh exquisite tiut had perform ed its own particular part, for which it, and it alone, was so singularly well adapt ed by uniting with the others and compos ing a glittering halo of light und glory, to encircle and crown the incomparable splen dor of the declining day, as though she had lavished every art peculiar to herself, and every charm pertaiuing thereto, to prove a grand anil glorious sunset the brightest vision on eartii below. Docs it not seem as though the western sky at sunset was but an immense mirror, reflecting back to mortal eyes the beauti ful color of every object painted by our Creator, only their charms are heightened and made more lovely by being so much nearer the Golden City, the abode of their groat Designer. We have the emerald greeu of the luxuriant foliage ; the sump tuous purple, the delicate azure tints, and roseate hues of soft vedvet flowers; and the transparent anther of the purling brook, ail caught up, ns it were from the lowly recesses of earth to the highest pinnacle of the high Heaven, and there allowed to burst upou us in tho radiant effulgence of their celestial glory, a thousand times more brilliant titan wheu iu their original state. But a sunset at the seaside baffles lan guage. Unless you have seen it for your self, tongue and pen arc alike inadequate to expatiate upou its magnificence and gran deur. A sunset in any other locality is not to be compared with it. Wheu the shadows of the sun, clothed in the garb of a raiubow, Blowly descend from the white capped cerulean clouds, until they fiually bathe in- the liquid waters and permit their gorgeous tints to scatter their radi ance over the wide expansoof ocean, send ing forth a reflection that would remind of tho kiss of a pearly dew drop upou the soft leaf of tho rose or lily, is it not en ough to steep the senses in oblivion, and entirely forgetting all present surround ings, imagine one's self fairly within the realms of fairy land, or in close proximity to the lovely bowers of the graceful sea nymphs ? May wo not think as we look at the sun set that perhaps it is hut a feint reflection of the "rainbow round tliethrouo, like un to an emerald ?" " Do you eall that a veal cutlet. Wait er ? Why, it is an insult to every true catf in the country." " I didn't mean to insult you, sir." Young women should beware of marry ing an accountant. If they do, they take An adder to their bosoms. A Writ of Attachment—A ^certificate. marnage « « ANCIENT LORE. From an old volume published in 1580, almost three hundred years ago, entitled "The Bookc of the Countrie Farm," by Richard Surflet, a correspondent sends some extracts to the Gardiner's Monthly, which may interest the readers of the Mid dletown Transcript., aud afford some valua ble hints to the practical pomologist. Of grafting ho thus deseanteth, nearly three hundred years ago : "Some do ordinarily plant stocks of the Garden Quince Tree, and graft Pear Trees thereon ; as also Apple Trees and great Peaches. The fruit whereof, taste as if they were Peach Plums, but they must be grafted one-half a foot within the ground, because they never have any faire trunke, and being grafted thus low, the graft will put forth roots of itsclfe, which will make it endure and continue the longer time." Here is something valuable aud will not be doubted ; we quote verbatim : "To cause fruit to grow, that shall be hälfe peach aud hälfe nut, take an eyelet of the one and the other, and cut them ueerc the eyelet as you can, both the one and the other, and scrape their bottoms a little; theu joyuing them, bind them verie well together, aud after cut away their toppes ; the fruit growing from these will be hälfe peaches and hälfe nuts." "Write what you will in the eyelet of a figge tree, which you incane to graft, and the figge growing thereof, will contain the said writing." Here is reference made to the curculio. However, the little pests do not appear to have yet learned to injure the pi He has progressed during the century past. "There breed in trees, certain small beasts, almost like to weevils, and they are somewhat blewish blaclte, and certain of them have long and sharpe pointed peakes or bills, these do great harmo to grafts and other young trees, for they cut off young scions, which arc yet but tender, put forth not past the length of a finger. You must at the height of the day, whet) you shall see them there, lay your hand upon them softly, without stirring the tree; for they let themselves fall downe, when one goeth about to take them, because they caunot quickly betake themselves to flight, and if they let not themselves fall into your hand, then reach up and take them upon the scions with your other hand." iu ly, as of it, to to Grafting was a remarkable art in An cient times. Many of the apparent at tachments of grafts to stocks of incompati ble nature, were frauds upon the simplici ty of the ignorant. But there scents to be no room for deception in the following, which appear to have been genuine grafts. "Graft a Plum tree graft, or any other fruit-tree graft, upon the figge tree, aud you shall have your fruit without blosso ing." How to produce evergreen oaks—"To cause au oak or other tree to continue greene as well in winter as in summer; graft it upon a Colewort Stocke." "Graft Chestnut and Ualiot Pcare trees upon a Goosebcrie hush, if you would have them to beare their fruit early." "Graft the Peach tree upon the Quince tree, you shall have peaches aud quinces together." "You shall have cherries on many trees, which will be good to cat unto November, if you graft the Cherry tree upon claginer Mulberrie tree, and upon a wild one." Li] a re "To have an early cherrie graft the May Heart on tho stalk of tho servisc-troe, and you will have very eatlie cherries." The writer of tho above, aud fifty more as valuable receipts for grafting and chan ging the quality of the fruit, to ho from the graft, has this one sensible para graph. "The grafting which is performed to a graft upon a tree, correspondent and swerahle to the nature of tho graft, prov eth of most beautiful growth aud most fruit ful and his fruit most durable ; which fal leth not out when this correspondence, sympathie, and fellowship is wanting: and this is the cause why the i'eaeh tree thriv eth better, being grafted in the Plum tree, than elsewhere, aud the l'eare Plum tree in the Almond tree, and there continue a long time." This folio of about 740 pages, no doubt, was considered a full treatise on Agricul ture, Horticulture, Domestic Preparation, Distillation, Preserving Fish in ponds,Sur veying, Vine Growing, Care of Game, of Woods, Dogs, Deer, Rabbits and Birds, for the time it was written. It doubtless cost tho venerable Surflet a life-time of Bearch, and brought him fame in his day, which has not, however, proved enduring, fot I cannot fiml him named in any bio graphical or bibliographical work to which I have access. Thou venerable volume, scored and seamed by the ruthless hand of time, how hast thou been pored over by seekers of wisdom they deemed thy pages held. Now torn and leatherless, browned and dog eared thou art thrown aside subject for rid icule, a monument of the folly and ignor ance of the age that produced thee, without merit art thou, nevertheless, for much that we deem recent finds a record in thy time-honored pages, sure thee for these, aud bless thee for the good thou hast done to our fathers, but while we do so, thank our stars we live three centuries further down tho course of time—that since thy days, the lights of science have arisen, and upon the dark ness a Linnæus, a Knight, a Van Mons, a Downing and a Bindley, have taught the true principles of Horticulture, filled up the wide gap of 800 years between thee and us, and in thy place given us the truths of nature without the illusions of fancy. green our and the of to of an 1T lan to is the of the en and the sea sun un Not We will trea true to take For unadulterated us to the German. economy commend Give Lint a salary of forty cents per diem," and in ten years he will own a brick block, a fat horse, nine children, and a vrow broader than she is long, aud as good natured as a blind kit ten.
