He covers me up with hi% care,
And his love is the love of a manhood,
Whose life is a living prayer
I have plighted my woman's affeations,
I have given my all in all,
And the flowers of a daily contentm6nt
Renew their sweet lives ere the fall.
And yet like an Instrument precious,

To a.dat wh-o boneath the branches

Judge Story, in his conmentaries otp
the Constitution, describes at length the
formalities observed. in trials for impeach.
ment We cite the following -passage
as corroborating the inferences we have
draws from the rule of the court in
Judge Chase's case: "If he" [the per.
son ithpeaci.edj "does not appear, in
person or by attorney, his defeult is
Vecorded, and the Senate may proceed
ex parte to the trial ot the impeachment
U-he does not. appear in person or, by
attorney, his appear%nce is recorded."
.There have been, in all,foor cases of
impeachment since the beginning of out
Go%rnment-namely, -that of Wm.
,lount. 179S; John Pickering, 1808.
Saithuel Chase, 1805 ; and Jamos H..
Peok, 1831. The law oerding such
trials, as stated by Jud'e Story, Is.foud
ad on the precedent4 FrAished by thest
f.,ur cases The argument of Geueral
Ruiler. in supportc of :the positlan 'of
Wendell Philips, that- the President
must. necessarily be luspended from oAi.

Iihe face of this unifoln hisage. But.
even if the exploded ass'mption of But.

operate as a suspension frTi office. If

Keeping Sweet Potat6el.
PdWres &uthern Cultivator: We
are suffering drought, (and to appear
ance of rain now,) to such an extent,
that few , persona - can make enotugh to
do them lonjer than- Christmas-many
not so long-I menn with cotton- to help
out; fbr it is almost a failure..
I believe I promised to give you my
plan of keeF:nig Potatoes,. whic is the
cheapest, I think, and certainly the
safest I've ever seen tried.
I build- a pen of logs, any desired
leogth, and five feet wide, (this-lessens
the risk from bulking), four to six et
high ; how it down evenly on the-inside,
so that the walls may be ceiled or daub
ed-mosiif cover the' whole- with a
good roof, and have a small .dobrin the
end. When this is done,' raise the bot.
tom with stones five or. six inches high
cover these with dry sand, to keep
them from cutting the potatoes, which
Inay not be put. ih, beginning in the
middle. Three or four inches 'of dty
sand most be placed between th" and
the wall.. ' I sometimes have a plak fr -
this purpose, raising it u'r as' the pOt4
toes are put in-, keeping the space be
tween the plank, aid wall well filled in
with the sand, which wilJ run down
through the potatoes as th10 plank is
raised. Let them remain so- until (req.
zirig weather, when you' can readily
cover entirely with: the dry sand', deel,
enough to keep them kom' being chilled.
Some attention may be .necessary for
awhile. as 9he sind s-ill ep.ntin4e to dio.
pere itselfamong tham, -nd, leave, Rq
top naked. There shoW be no-lbaks
in the roof' Trhere' is but 'little' waste
in the sand. when onee .precured. ILike'
the house, it is alnys .readsy, and at
the spot. H{ence, the cheapness e(.the
plan. The phiilosopAy of toe plan is
the uiniforthitempe'-ature li rsdrhile'
it absorbe, and astvrieA. o#thetkcessive
moisture tht, nmay be 'in the' potato. I
have triod this plan satisfa4tWrily foe 20

'my mind by teeingA:Iisgetooting up
