The Fenner at Home. O biset is he, from business free, Like the merry men of old, Who tills his land with his own stout hnnd, And knows not the lust of gold. Bnt he bids the tine with her tendrils twine, Around the poplar tall, And he adds a graft, with a gardener's craft, To the tree that cKmbs bis wall. Or b grazier keen, o'er pastures green He sees bis oxen feed ; Or be shears his flock, or he brews his stock Of his rustic nectar mead. And when antnmn at length, in hi» manly stMttffe . . ■ Has raised hil fruit-erewhed be»*. He plucks the pear with its flavor rare, And the grape with its clusters red. With his knee on the sod he thanks bis God For His mercies nnd favors free ; And be lays him along, while be list* the song Of the thrush in the old oak tree ; While the waters glide with their rippling tide, And the gephyrs softly creep O'er the quivering leaves 'midst murmuring trees, And lall the sense to sleep. Bnt when thundering Jove, from his stores above, Sends wintry snows and rain ; And rock and wood, and field and flood, Lie bonnd in his icy chain, If a loving wife—best staff of lift— Be hi*, nnd children dear, The fire bum« bright with iu ruddy light His homeward step to cheer. At the cottage door, when his toil is o'er. She «Und* frith her smUe so «west, And holds up her face with modest grace, His welcome kiss to meet ; And his children glad »warm round their j dad— Bnt the hungry man mnat dins ; So she spreads the cloth, and he supe his broth, While she ponrs out her home-made wine. ; Sheep on the Fana.

They give bsck to the fsrm more in proportion to what they take from it than any other ani mal, and distribute it better with a view to the future fertility of the aqij. Prove this? There is no need of proof to those who have kept sheep, and know their habits and the profit they yield. To prove it to those who have not the experience, it is necessary they should try the experiment or accept the testimony of an experienced shepherd. But the live stock of a farm should not necessarily be sheep exclusively. Cattle, horses, swine have their respec tive places in farm economy. How | many to keep of each is a question that ' locality, character of markets, adapta- , tion of soil, predisposition, taste and j skill of the husbandman must decide, j But one thing ought not to be forgot -1 ten, that the more stock a man keeps j his form, the more grass and grain J it ought, and if properly managed, it j will grow. correspond with the business tact, tech- j nical knowledge and skill of the has- ( band man. ! on The rates of increase will ! Ashes in Orchards. —Th« point to ; which we call attention is that oar formers and fruit growers have ignored, or rather been ignorant of, the impor tance of wood ashes as a vegetable stimulant and as the leading constituent of plants. Even eoal ashes, now thrown away as useless, have been shown, both by experiment and analysis, to possess a fair share of alkaline value. We will relate only one experiment: Some twenty-five yeare ago we treated an old hollow pippin tree as follows: The hollow, to the height of eight feet, was filled and rammed with a compoait of wood ashes, garden mold and a little waste lime (carbonate.) The filling securely fastened in by boards. The next year the crop of sound frnit was* sixteen bushels from the old shell of a tree that had borne nothing of any account for some time, and for seven teen years after filling the old pippin tree oontinned to flourish and bear well .—Scientific Ameriean. was Thk Corn Chop.— The September report of the Department of Agricul ture states that the corn crop is larger than any previous one, notwithatanding losses by overflows. The State aver ages, east, west and sonth, are nearly all excessive. Delaware figures 100, Maryland 106, Virginia 112, and Mis sissippi (the highest) 116 In the Northwest the averages range from 60 to 101. A very genteel-appearing young man, wearing kid gloves and carrying a lithe and flexible walking-stick, thought he would have a joke with a rusty and venerable farmer on the Fair Grounds last Tuesday afternoon. 'Halloo,' said the dandy, 'are yon one of the judges on hogs?' 'Waal, yaas, walk right up god let mo look at yon,' said the old former.
