?W11Y DON'T YOU TAKE A PA-I
PER, BROWN ?" Why don't you lake the paper, Brown? I'm sure it is a shame, That wc can't gc* ilio news from town Before it's old and tame. There's Deacon Jones, across the way. Who gels one every wtek ? And who can beat you all, they wry, When called upon to speak. The reason, sir, is plain, you know, For when he reads it througli, His words like milk and honey flow, And all he says is new. So he is taken by the hand, For what ho can impart ; While old and young around him stand, And say, " The Deacon's smart !" * Oh ! is it not n shame, I say, To hug your purse so tight, When a mere bit of yellow clay \Y;>uld set the matter right? What good S??W ? now can you tell ? To any of your Unless it keep? tho body well, benefits the mind? Why don't you take a paper, Brown ? I'm sure it is a shame, That wc can't get the news from town, Until its old and tame ! Now let us quit this simpic way, And take a worthy start, An-J ere a year our friends will say, " The Browns arc getting smart." THE LADIES' SAD CASE. How hard is the fate of all Womankind ? Forever subjected, forever confined ! Tho parent controls us until we arc wives, The husband enslaves us, the rest of our lives. If fondly wc lave, yet we d?rc not reveal, But secretly languish, compelled to conceal ; Denied every comfort of life to enjoy, We're shamed if we're kind, and we're blam'd if we're coyl ECHO: OR TIIR GENTLEMEN'S SAD CASE. How hard is the fortune of silly Mankind, To the frailties and foibles of woman still blind! ?We are miss-led and bride-led, until we get wives, And then wc are sad-led the rest of our lives. Though horned and though hcnpcJc'd, wc dare not complain, But secretly languish in exquisite pain ; Denied tho prime blessings of life to enjoy We're abused if we're kind, and blamed if we're shy ! 1 U.LT U It ALT' The True Secret of Profitable Farming. I believe it is generally ad 111 it ft* d that, our best lands could be kept from deterio rating by the same course of farming that would prevent our thin and worn out soils -Tphh becoming poor. And the same ro tation of clover and ploughed crops, that ! would increase the productivenessof a poor | soil, would in an equal if not in a gieater * ratio, increase the productiveness of tho more fertile ; provided the manure made j by the produce of each was constantly re turned to the land. There is no doubt a limit to this increase of fertility, by any course of cultivation,1 varying in dilFerent soils ; but where that limit may he, I have 110 means of ascer taining. But from the observations I have been able *0 make, 1 am persuaded that on ih-e soil of this part of the State, proper cultivation would raise the productive pow ers of the land to above one hundred bush els of corn to tho acre. The degree 0! fertility possessed by any soil, may there fore be considered in 'some degree a per manent property of such soil, liable indeed in every case, to be increased by proper care, or to be still further exhausted by improvident culture, or other improper management. 1 have often thought that farmers were not aware how the value of their land was regulated bv its productiveness. I do not mean its value in the market, but its value to the owner. In order more fully to ex plain my meaning, we will take the num ber of bushels of corn an acrc of land will produce, as the standard of its fertility. The cost of cultivating an acre is about the same, whether it produce twenty or eighty bushels. ' The fodder will pay for husking the one as well as the other. There will be more manure to be returned to the productive field than to the unpro ductive one, and the cost of cribbing and, preparing the large ciop for market will be about three cents on the bushel, over iiie produce of the small one ? four cents; per bushel will fully cover all extra ex penses. In this section of the country, where labor is worth about fifty cents a day, the cost of raising and preparing for market an acre of corn producing twenty bushels, is about live dollars, varying a little with the condition of the land, the season, &c. The amount produced in Ohio, is usu ally between twenty and eighty bushels ; depending on the fertility of the land ; not man" r>ekls producing more than eighty bushels without <;-Wl labor, and not many ?? but what will produce i?7p-uty, il live dol lars worth of labor is expended. Now let us see if wo can estimate the value of an acre ol land of different degrees of fertility. An acre of corn producing 20 bu. at 23 cents per bushel $5 00 Cost of cultivation as above 5 00 Value of ihe land to the owner 0 00 An acrc producing 30 bu. a 23c. $7 50 Cost of cultivation $5 ? 4 cents per bu. on 10 bu., 40 cents 5 40 Value of the land lo the owner Or the interest at 0 per cent, on $35. An acre producing 50 bushels a 25c, 812 50 Cultivation $5 ? * cem> pcrbu. u ^ ^ 30 bu. $1 20 T... Value oT tl.c land .0 the owner . 0 =?" Or the interest ufSIOS a C per cent. An acrc ot land linH ucl"n ^20 00 Cultivation S5-4 , eww T? lm" ,() un 00 bushels, 4 Value of the land to the owner Or the interest of $210 at G per cent. , Or one aere of land that will yield SO bushels of corn is word, as inuch to farmer as six ae.es yield,,.* JO M c . per acre Or a farm ot 20 acres, v ieldinn bushels per acre, is worth as .nucn as a farm of 120 acres, yielding 30 bushels pc acre. Or a farmer can aflord to pay for a permanent improvement in an acrc of land equal to the production ol 10 bush els of com annually. But it will be said that Indian corn le quires a richer soil than any other grain, and will co..?cquently pay a heavier per centage for very productive land. Let us see ? The ordinary cost of cul tivating an acre of land in wheat, harvest ing a:-d housing the crop, say 55 bushels p '-^eluding seed, is about tfl ; and Prr l'T L - 17 1 bushels, is about 83 50, of oats, snj of cach (Q y lor allowing the su. w _ ^ al 75 and i threshing. Counting ti e . ^ ' the oats at 20 cents per bi.* 'tel. crops would just be equal to ? * of corn at 23 cents per bushel ; each 1 would just-pay for cultivation, giving no profit for die land. Thirty bushels of corn, eight and two thirds of wheat, and thirty of oat?, will ?rive 82 10 profit ? charging 81 40 for cultivating the wheat, and *3 90 for oats. Fifty bushels of com, 15] of wheat and 55 of oats, will give $0 30 pro lit f01M.1t' land ? charging 85 20 for cultivating the wheat, and $4 70 for the oats. And 80 bushels of corn, 25] of wheat, or 02 ol oats ? charging 0 10 for cultivating the wheat and 85 90 for the o;it-s, w i.l g1^' 812 GO profit for the land. lit this coun ty, an acre of land that would yield 20 bushels of corn, would yield about 05 bushels of wheat, and probably a little more than 17=1 of oats. One that would yield 30 of corn, would produce about of wheat in a good season, and 35 o? oats; and an acre that would yield 50 oi corn^ would produce about 10 of wheat, and la of oats; and one that would yield 80 ol corn would ptoduce from 25 to 30 ot wheat but would be unsuitable for oats, anil I believe that lor meadow or pasture tin comparison will hold equad\ well. Assavino Metals.? The as?aylns U the most curious and scientific of a.i t it business in the mint. The inciters take ,l,e mild dust, melt it, and east it into a liar, when it is weighed accurate y , -uid a J ' is cut off for the assay er. He takes it, melts it with twice its weight ol sil\ei, and several times its weight ot lead. 1 is melted in small cups made ol bone ashes which absorb all the lead ; a lar<_ri part of silver is extracted by another pro cess, and the sample is then rolled out to a thin shaving, coiled up, and put in .1 soil of glass vial called a matrass, with some nitric acid. The matrasses arc put in a furnace, and the acid is boiled some tune, poured oil', a new supply put in, and bod ed a fain. This is done se\ ei al tunes, tii. ! the acid has extracted all the silver an-, other mineral substances, leaving the sam ple pure gold. The sample is then weighed, and by the ditlercnce between the weight before assaying and attei tin. true value is found. All the silver over land aboVe live pennyweights for cac.i lot, is paid for by the mint at its true vaiue.? ?The gold, after it has been assay eu, _is melted, refined, and being mixed wit 1 its j due proportion ot alloy, is draw 11 intojoi.g strips, (not unlike an iron hoop tor a cask,) the round pieces cut out with a sort of punch, each piece weighed, brought to the right size and put into a stamping press, whence it comes torih a peiteet , coin. ? Scientific mcrican . Working~Gxuls.? llappy gi.ls. who can but love them ! V, itli cheeks like the rose, bright eyes and elastic step, how cheerfully they go to work. Our reputa tion for it, such girls will make excellent wives. Blessed indeed will those men be who securc such prizes. ^ C ontrast those who do nothing but sigh all day and live to follow the tashious, who ne\er earn the bread they cat, or the shoes thc\ wear ? who are languid and lazy trom one week's end to another. ho but a sim pleton and a popinjay would prefer one ol the latter if he w ere looking lor a compan ion. (.live us the working girls. 1 nc\ are worth their wcigl.t in gold. \ ou never see them mincing along, or jump a dozen feet to steer clear ot a spider or a ily. They have no affectation? 110 silly airs about them. W hen they meet you, they speak without putting on a dozen silly airs or trying to show otl to better advantage, and you feel as if you were talking to a human being and not toa; painted, fallen angel. If. girls knew how sadly they miss it while they endeavor to show oil their delicate hands and unsoiled skins, and put 011 a thousand airs ? they would give, worlds for the situation of the working la thes, who arc as far above them in intelli gence, iu honor, in everything, as the 53 7 heavens arc above the earth. J?e wise then, you who have made fools of your selves through life. Turn over a new leaf and begin though late, to live and act as human beings ? as companions to immor tal man, and not play-things and dolls ; in 110 other way can you be happy, and sub serve the design of your existence. By the Constitution of California, all offices, judicial as well as administrative, are to be filled by election ; the principle of Homestead Exemption is established, 10 be hereafter cariieu out by the Legisla ture ; the property of married women is to a considerable extent secured to them independent of their husbands ; and gen eral laws arc in all practicable cases to render special legislation unnecessary . Duelling, <?r sending or accepting a chal lenge, unfits a man not only to hold office, but even to vote. The Legislature is subject to very stringent limitations against the contraction of public debts, and all is i suing of paper money by corporations 01 individuals is forbidden. ! hese last pio visrions would not seem to us the perfec tion of wisdom in an old State under ordi nary circumstances, but where the tenden cy to gambling and speculation is so enor inous as in California they will possibly be found useful. The Eastern boundary of California is fixed by the Constitution at 120? West of Greenwich; the Western boundary of Deserct has been established by the people of that country at 1 18?. 30'. This leaves a territory a degree and a hall wide between the two with no other Gov ernment. Congress will doubtless see to that however. Model of Jerusalem. A new and enlarged model of the Iloly City is now on exhibition at the 'Fremont Temple. ? It gives a better idea of Jerusalem than anything of the kind we have ever seen. ? We spent an exceedingly pleasant hour in examining it the other evening, and while there could easily fancy ourselves to be wandering about the city it represents. It is made of wood and is about ten feet wide by thirteen long The walls of the city, with its battlements and turrets and gates, the white doom.- of the houses of J'o lown, the minarets of the Mahomc ? i!?e narrow streets of the city, the ?rreat 7,Iosq*J^ of the Caliph Omar, the I convents of" .l',e -^his, and Greeks, and Armenians, and ?110V? 1'1C sacrc(' Church of the Holy SepuMirC, are repre sented with singular fidelity. Nothing is omitted. This model includes not P'dy the city itself, but the immediate environs. The visitor is shown the valleys of Hin noin and Jehosophat. the Mount of Olives, and the garden of Gethscmane, the vil lage of Siloani, the hill of Evil Council, and all those places adjacent to Jerusalem, ivhieh are so interesting to every Chris tian. Even the dull and barren aspect of the country is preserved, which all, who have ever visited the city, have remarked. Southern Manufactuers. ? We hail it as one of the most auspicious signs of the times, that the whole South is awak I ing to the importance of establishing man ufactories. Geoigia has taken the lead, South Carolina has followed, Alabama has begun to move, and Louisiana is following close in her footsteps. In the city of N. Orleans, we learn from the Picayune, books of subscription to the stock of a cotton j factory, which is to employ five thousand i spindles, have already been opened. Wo : hold this to be the most sensible move ever made by the citizens of the ifrcat ( Southern Kmoorium, nn.l won it has not j been made before, we do not exactly un derstand. Surely, if there is any place in the world better suited than another for the manufacture of cotton, it is New Or leans. \\ o wish the projectors brilliant ; success,' and we ha\e no doubt they will meet with it. It seems to us, at this dis tance, with Mich au immense eountrv as they will have to supply, almost impossi ble for theiii to fail. ? Cumberland Civ. Marriage at tiie Emigrant Oeficf.. ? \ man from the country, we believe a Frenchman by birth, entered the Emigrant office, in the Park, this forenoon, in search of a girl to assist him in his business. He said he had land, cows, and other aifairs connected with farming, and he wished some one to assist him. Ho selected a voting woman who had just arrived and come to the office to obtain pecuniary as sistance. She hesitated to go with him, but finally lie said, " 1 tell you what I will do with you, I will marry you." The I bargain was then quickly concluded. Aid. James Kelly was sent for, but nothing ar riving in season, Justice Bleakley happen ed in, and fastened the connubial knot. The half an hour before strangers but now apparently well pleased man and wife, ' then left the oilice together for the new home to the lady, in the country. Verily time and chance doth happen to all men, and to all women, too, as appears by the present case. ? Exchange Paper. Dogmatism ? " Robert, my dear," said Jenny, with the deferential air of a schol ar; "Robert, what did Mr. Carraways mean when lie said he hated dog ? dog matism ?" Topps was puzzled. "Ro bert, my dear," Jenny urged, 44 what what in the world is dogmatism ?" Now it was the weakness of Topps ne ver to confess ignorance of anything so ever to his wife. "A man should never doit, Topps has been known in convi vial seasons to declare ; "it makes 'em conceited." Whereupon Topps, wrested from his first purpose of examination, by the query of his spouse, prepared himself, as was his wont, to make solemn, satisfy ing answer. Taking oil' his hat, and smoothing the wrinkles of his brow Topps said ? "Ilumph ! what is dogmat ism ? Why, it is this ? of course. Dog matism is puppyism come to its fid! growth." A gentleman playing whist with an in timate friend, who seemed, as far as hands were concerned, to hold the Mahometan doctrine of ablution in supreme contempt, said to him with a countenance "more in sorrow than in anger," " My good fellow, if dirt were trumps, what a hand you would have !"
