Human Qreatami. Sir.Tohn Mason, privy connsoller to | Henry VIII, spoke as follows upon his death-bed: "1 haie scon live prince*, and been i privy counsellor of four.—I have seen the most remarkable things abroad, and ' been present at most state transactions for thirty years. After all tills experi- j ence, 1 have learned this: that serious-! ness is most commendable, tempernuce ' the best physic, and a good conscience the best estate. Were I to live again, lwoutd change the court for the clois ter; my privy comisellor's bustio for the retirement of a hermit;. and the whole time which I have spent in the palace, for one hour's communication with God. When I look upon the tombs of the great, every emotion of envy dies, when I read the epitaphs of th|; beauti ful, every inordinate desire forsakes me ; when I meet with the griet of pa rents upon tho tombstone, my heart melts with compassion ; when leeethe tombs of the parents themselves, I re fllect how vain it is to grieve for those whom wo must quickly follow ; when I see kings lying by the side of those that deposed them—when I behold ri val wits placed sid * by side, or the ho ly men who divided tire world with their contests and disputes—I reflect with sorrow' and astonishment on the frivolous competitions, factious and debates of mankind ; when I read tho several dates on the tombs, of whom some died yesterday, and some siS hun dred years ago, 1 am reminded of that day when all mankind will be contem poraries, and make their appearance together.—Addison. Farming Maxim*. 1. That, however well prepared a toil may be, it cannot nourish a long succession of crops without becoming exhausted. 2. Each harvest impoverishes the soil to a certain extent, depending upon the degree of nourishment which it re stores to the earth. 3. The cultivation of spindle roots ought to succeed that of running aud superficial roots. 4. It is necessary to avoid returning too soon to the cultivation of the same, or to analogous kinds of vegetables, in the same soil. 5. It is very unwise to allow two | kinds of plants, which adnjit of the i ready growtli of weeds among them, to j be raised in succession. 6. Those plants that derive their | principal support from the soil should j not be sown, except when the soil is ' sufficiently provided with manure. 7. "When the soil exhibits symptoms of exhaustion from successive harvests, the cultivation of those plants that re store moisture to the soil must be re sorted to. These principles aro confirmed by experience; they form the basis of a system of agriculture rich in its pro ducts, butniore rich in its economy, by ; the dmiinulion of the usual quantity of* labor and manure. All cultivators ought to be governed by them, but their application must be modified by the nature of soils and climates, and the particular wants of each locality. --- . i Size of Farm*. If farmers who have poor farms of j large size were to curtail the dimen- | sions of their corn fields fifty per cent.( and expend the amount they saved in labor in manure, they would be enabled iu a few years, devoted to such policy, to improve all their arable lands, and bring their entire estates into a condi tion of profitable fertility. And while this would be going on, they would find by the increase of manure applied to their coni land, nnd attention to its culture, that their corn crop would rather increase than decrease. The great fault with us all is, that we attempt to achieve too much, and ow ing to that circumstance, fail of achiev ing anything worthy of the character of good farmers. It should be the policy and pride of all to do whatever we do well, rather than too ambitious nf doinsr much, Large corn fields I unmanured, and but half tended, ns is too often the case with many of us, re flect no credit upon their individual owners, and are actually discreditable to the husbandry of the country. Working llie ground while It la Wet! The temptation is often great to use a fair month for the preparation of the •oil for crops before the water is suffi ciently dried off, or drained out of it, to warrant its being stirred at all. Thus the gain of forty-eight hours in time Is often a serious detriment to the j field for the entire season. Light sandy loams arc not injured in this j way, but every clayey loam is, and as | a general rule so is any soil that ever! dries in lumps. The plow presses the I fhrrow slices into clods, which often dry like pressed bricks ; and the tread ing of the teams in harrowing makes bad worse, though the harrow tears them up somewhat. Even heavy loam may be worked into a light, porous, warm seed-bed if in proper condition lor plowing before being worked. Characteb.—We may judge a man’s character by what lie loves—what pleases him. If a person manifests de light in low, sordid objects—(he vul gar song and debasing language, in the misfortune of his fellow s, in cruelty to animals, we may Rt once determine the complcxtlon of his character. On the contrary, if he loves purity, mod esty, truth—if virtuous pursuits engage his heart and draw out his aU'cctioui —we are satisfied that he is an upright man. •SrLife may change, but it will not . fly till the appointed hour; hope may ! vanish for a time, but it is deuthless : , truth may he veiled, hut it endures; , and love may he repulsed, hut it re turns. g^-lu Germany when a paper says j anything witty they kill the editor;i and not one editor has been killed there for two hundred years. The Emblem or Democracy. EiutorStatesman; Why is it that the Democratic party adopt the "rooster” as .ho emblem of victory ? Please explain. Democrat. Because the game rooster is the gamest >ird, when encroached upon by his fel ows, that ever existed, and the Democracy s the gamest party that ever voted at an flection or resented oppression. Both :he party and its emblem, when they go nto the fight, make it a matter of life or leath. Both may be whipped, but not .omjuerod, for giving up, when once in flic fight, is a word up known to the prac tice of the rooster, and it is not found in the Democratic vocabulary. This is one reason for adopting the rooster as the emblem of Democracy, an atber reason is this: During the war of 181- the British fleet on Lake Champlain was attacked by the American fleet under Couimodoro McDonough. The fleet of McDonough, much inferior to that of the English, suffered terribly in the first part of the battle. At the moment when it was rag ing fiercest—the heaviest fire of the ene my directed against the flag-ship of Mo Donough—his men driven from their ^uns by the fierce cnnnouudp, and dismay latupon every countenance, and the storm )f iron hail, which seemed to threaten instruction not only to the ship but to ’very living soul therein, was at its height, i cannon ball struck a -chicken coop and knocked it to pieces, killing all it contain ed but a moment before, save only a game rooster, whose battered comb bore the marks of many a death fight. Flying up du the bulwarks of McDonough’s flag-ship, the noble bird, undaunted by the noise ana coniusion ana carnage aruuuu nun, with clarion voice rang out his notes of Refinance and victory. Sailors are very superstitions, and when, in the pause of the thunder of the ene my’s cannon, they heard the shrill “cock a-doodle-doo” of the undaunted bird, they gathered new courage, and repairing again to their guns, returned anew the fire of the enemy, cheered by tbc loud crow of tho emblem of Democracy, until the bat tle ended, and McDonough, on Lake Champlain, like the Democracy of Ohio, was victorious over the enemies of the country. Every naval historian makes mention of the fact, and history says that the bra very shown on that occasion by the rooster was the cause of the victory, by the renewed courage it gave to the sailors of McDonough's fleet. From that day to this, in political con tests, the rooster has been the Democratic emblem of victory, and when it is seen in the act of sending forth its “cock-a doo dle-do” at the head of a Democratic news paper, it is right to say that tho country is safe, for the victory is with the Democ racy. The gallant birds that grace our columns, crowing over Ohio redeemed from Aboli tion misrule, are believed to be, if not lineal descendants, living likenesses of the one that cheered McDonough and his men on to victory in 1812.—Ohio Statesman. *®“W hen four woodlarks are allow ed to do all the singing in the forest, and our seraphs all the singing in Heaven, then can our churches ai.brd to depend for singing upon four per sons who stand in the loft, with their throats yet sore from singiug at liie opera, executing their fugue tune, :w>d torturing our good old hymns in the following manner: •AVe'll catch the flee “We’ll catch the flee “We’ll catch the flee—ting hours.” “Pity our poll “Pity our poll “Pity our poll—uted souls. “He'll take the pil “He’ll take the pil ‘He'll take the pil—grim home." •AY ith reverence let tho saints appear.
