[From the Ohio Farmer.] Old and America; OR THE PILGRIMS OF THE RHINE. PILGRIMS OF THE RHINE. BY COL. S. D. HARRIS. The thunders of Monterey, and Su Juan and Chapultepec, were hashed to silence, and our paor fellows had return ed from the victorious fields of Mexico, damaged in habits, and damaged in health, to demonstrate how hollow is all the glory of war. I cast away helmet, and gold-laced garments, and hnng my useless blade in a dark closet, while my leathern guantlets were intiodaeed to the beiie of the winter woodman's axe, and my spurs used only to teach goad carriage to a refractory roadster. The war-spirit was sated, and men turned their thoughts again to the exeellencejof peace. In the spring of 1851, the great cy nosure of all eyes, was the Crystal Pal ace in Hyde Park ; and a good many of the American people, being dazzled with the promise of such a bright star, turned their faces eastward, for the first time in their lives, and determined to go on a pilgrimage to the shrine of Roy alty, to read this new riddle of conserva tire progression. Our little party had seen all the won ders of the Crystal Palace, and many other of the lions about London and Windsor, and we determined upon a trip up the Rhine, to see how that would compare with the Hudson, the St. Law rence, or oui own beautiful Ohio ; which we had so often admired in the beauty of Spring, and the glory of Autumn, as we floated between a double panorama of magnificence and grandeur on either bank; and where the seats were all freesave and except the steamboat fare not to editors only, but to every soul on board, who had an eye to see how much the living world is more glo rious than any picture which can be put on canvas. We bad proceeded up the Shine only as far as Coblentz, and concluded to stop a few days and ruralize, till the steamer came down from May e nee, to take as on its return passage. Nettie and Kate, wanted to visit the vineyards back from the river, so I set out one morning, and after clambering over the rocky steeps, upon which stands the castle of Ehrenbreitstein, we strayed back for a few miles among the most lovely of sloping hill sides such as we got glimpses of below Broekville, on the St. Lawrence, or at Newburg and above, on the Hudson, or, what is equal ly lovely, almost any mile on the Ohio, from Wheeling to Cairo. Nellie was much taken with the little cabins of the Yignerous, and declared, as she had only seen high life in London, she would take a peep into the little life of the lessons of Herr Schmidt, of the Seminary. There were a dozen of thi-.se eottages. at the foot of the hill, the sides of which were all covered with grape vines, be longing to Baron D , where most of the men and women were busy, with clumsy hoes, working in the mellow soil, or with strips of matting, tying np the truant vines. Our walk had made us thirsty, we stopped at the door of the first cot tage, and asked for vaster. The good Fraa had a sickly looking babe in her arms, which she was going to deposit upon a blanket, on the earth floor of the hut, while she brought the water, when Nettie held out her hands and said, "Gitb dot ww." The pale women smiled, as she laid the baby in Nettie's lap, who had by this time seated her self on a stool inside the door-way. Then the woman hastened to supply us from a tpring which bubbled up justback of the hamlet, which she did with so much good will, that we felt, though we had been born so far apart, yet we were already friends so mysterious is the un- . . it 1 seen bond wnicn unices in one, au wno fell the paternity of one Goo, and the sympathy of a universal brotherhood. Already we were not only mends but confidents ; for when the good Fran learned that we were Americans, she told us her brother was in America, and that he had spoken so favorably of the coun try, in his letters, that several families were only waiting the means to go, and try their fortunes, where he told them they could soon earn a house and land of their own, and be their own master. instead of. paying such high rent, and always living on the lands of the rich, and being obliged to do their bidding. She said her husband's name was Gott fried Schiller; she feared it would almost break his heart to leave his native soil, since he had always lived on that same domain ; but it was only for the sake of the children, of which they had eight, and they did not know what would be come of them, with such a poor pros pect before them, if their parents should be taken suddenly away, before they grew up to be able to take care of them selves. Then Gottfried came in from his vine yard, and we were soon on as good terms with him as with his friendly spouse. He asked a great many questions about America, and how a poor man could get along there, and if the snakes would bite the children, if they chanced to go out of doors, and if the wild men would come Irom toe woods, wnne me men were away at their work, and kill the women, and carry off the children to roast for a feast 1 Nettie and Kate were so much amus ed, by the old man's fears, that they both fairly shouted, and clapped their hands, which put to flight all his fears, and he joined in. the laugh himself, and said he believed the Baron had told him such stuff, to discourage them from go ing off to America. Wilhelm was Gottfried's oldest son, a manly youth of twenty. Wilhelm liked the idea of going to the new country, but how could he leave Madeline ? or, how could he manage it to take her along. Now Madeline lived in the same neigh borhood, and was a right eomely lass, and but for her plain, coarse frock, (she had on neither bonnet nor shoes,) she might, in a more seemly garb, pass for a belle, in a much higher circle. Made line was full of native grace, and such a gentle winning way, that to see her in such a state, made us feel, only more intensely, as the poet did when he found Pegasus hitched to a cart. In Germany, marriage is not a cheap and free institution, as it is in our coun try. The bridegroom must give bonds in so much, to indemnify the public against being burthened with the conse quences of his marriage. Then to go through all the legal forms, -will cost some fifty thalers more ; and this look ed like a hopeless obstacle in the way of poor Wilhelm and Madeline, since it would take their utmost to save enough. to pay their passage to America, in two years, without any extra expense or lia bill ties. "What shall we tell them?" said Net tie, turning her eye, half roguishly, and half pleadingly, to mine. -"Ask Madeline if she can trust Wil helm," I responded '0 yes," said the girl frankly, "I can trust him with my life." jjinti adCnaml "Well, then," said I, "tell them to put off the marriage till they get to America, then it will only cost them two or three thalers and no security to be given." "Is that so?" inquired Wilhelm doubt ingly. "That is true," said Nettie. I put my hand upon my breast and nodded as sent so honest-looking that they were satisfied, and Wilhelm and Madeline ex changed such relieved glances that we felt the case was settled. By this time all the little Schillers had gathered about the door, with their fat, diriy faces, and brown, bare legs, and unkempt flaxen locks; and Gott fried, opening a little pit on the side of the cabin, took out a jug of last year's tage, in which we pledged the whole amily in general, and I concluded by a bumper to Wilhelm and Madeline in ad vance, when they should come to Amer ica. So we hastened back to Coblentz, when we found our friends in great trib ulation lest we should stay away so long in our rural rambles as to be too late for the steamer, which was than hourly expected ; and sure enough ! we had only got through supper when the por ter came for our trunks, and said the boat would leave in half an hour. We were glad to set our faces home ward, for we had already stayed away longer than we had leave of absence for, and the three weeks that lay be tween us and our dear treasures on this side the Atlantic, seemed like a great while. " Homeward bound ! " is a joyful ord when there is a good home and kind friends waiting to receive the wan derer. The year passed by, and another. and then I got permission to lay down my editorial pen for a month, and leave my Ohio home for a ramble in New England, where I was born. O 1 how gloriously those old hills lift their blue, shaggy heads to the sky ; and how nobly the hardy toiler wins from the scanty soil enough for himself and those he loves 1 Our great West is the land of plenty the granary of the continent but New England is the nursery of Maw ; and when these have spent a few years in the West they become Man Eklabo- kd. Let no American count his educa tion complete until he has been liberali sed by a sojourn in the West. Pardon the egotism it is nevertheless true. I had become tired of the sights and sounds of .Gotham and its Crystal Pal- all but a seat among the grand old trees on the battery, and the fanning of the breeze as it came landward from the ocean beyond. I had mingled with the many thous ands who gathered at the great indus trial fairs at Montpelier and Saratoga, and having done and said all that was set for me in the bills, turned my face homeward, and on the evening of the 23d of September found myself in Buffa lo, with the good Steamer Mississippi just ready to start for Cleveland and Sandusky. The storm of the autumnal Equinox had been tampering with us for two days, and that night the wind came ominous ly over the murky waters from the west The narrow ciaft still hugged the docks Id commanders looked away up the Lake and shook their heads. The " Northern Indiana" had gone out, but if wishing could have done it, she would have been back again in Buf falo Creek. The "Mayflower" was quiet as a kitten on the hearth. Captain Has zard went upon the upper deck and gave orders to get the " Mississippi" into the stream. All hands set to work, and soon we were outside the light house on the break water, and the noble steamer, like a ball-room gallant, made its evening bow gracefully to the waves, with which it was to dance that night. I was up by the Pilot house until the lights in the harbor were dim in the dis tance and then scarcely able to hold my coat on for the wind, went below. A fancy struck me that I would see what the company was like before I turned in; so after walking through the cabins I went to the steerage, which was full of Emigrants, who were disposing them selves for the night some upon the rough floor with a bundle for a pillow, and some bedding of their own ; some had sat down upon boxes and leaned Jhem selves against the side of the boat or a post and in such a mixed positi on were oblivious of all without. In the midst of the steerage and close by the gratings above the mouth of the furnace was a group of half-a-dozen little children, looking wondcringly at the great light which shone up from its cav ernous depths as though it came from the work shop of old Pluto himself. I paused a moment to look at their chub by, bronzed faces, and then passed on to the bow, where some sheep fancier had a group of fine Merinoes, from Ver mont, which he was taking West. But I could not dismiss the picture of the chil dren over the grating ; the night was dark as pitch, end the lurid glare from the furnaces of those bare-headed, bare leged urehiaa, made- them to look like progeny of the infernal gods. I stopped again close beside them, and they looked into my face. " Poor wanderers," said I to myself. " You have had a long journey from Father-land, and this is the last night of your travel. God grant you a happy to-morrow." Near this group, in a nook formed by the state-room and Steward's office, sat upon a heavy chest, a young man and woman, 'evidently much pleased with each others conversation. I did not like to seem rude, but stole a dozen glances at them. Their bronzed faces had not so much of the stolid look as those of their companions. Sometimes others of the company would join them for a few moments, but those two seemed mutually select, and any ac cession was only temporary. I went to my cabin and lay down, but somehow I could not sleep. Not that I cared for storm, though the wind yelled among braces and cordage. I knew the Mis sissippi and Captain Hazsard were both all oak, and both to be trusted. It could not be on account of the fifty emigrant Germans in the steerage, whom I should never see again ; but I could not sleep, and after tossing for an hour, detected myself making for the steerage, with a kind of feverish impression of those poor tired faces. The wind still freshening and meeting us full on the starboard quarter, every "tenth wave" sent a column of water as high as the pilot house, and the whole forward deck was constantly drenched, and the man with the fancy sheep was becoming anxious. But I must confess my errand was to look after th oaaigraat babtaa. -There they were, bless their fat legs 1 all fast asleep. Then it occurred to me I had at no time seen any one whom I took to be their mother. Here was a stout, middle aged man with one of the little ones in his armsj both asleep ; and here a half-grown girl with another, the smallest, asleep upon her bosom ; there two pairs formed the outside, and between them lay the rest of the group on some old bedding, and all sleeping as quietly as though they were on dry land upon beds of down, instead of that boat's deck in such a gale. " Poor tired ones," I mused again. "You have no doubt weathered far heavier storms while on your voyage to the New World, and have learned to rest, though not on roses. I looked for my select group what a lovely sight ! They were sitting with their backs to the wall, the girl had leaned her head upon her companion's bosom, and both were sleeping as quietly and innocently as though Madame Propriety had never made rules to govern such cases. The Steamer's bow played boo-peep with the white-crested swells at a frantic prate. Now pointing up, like the nursery picture of the cow that jumped over the moon, and now pointing his nose full at a wave like a portentious bull going to battle. But the wind howled still louder and the waves dashed still higher. All the hatches were closed, but the water invaded the deck and came pouring along by the sleepers. This ofcourse broke up my nest of sleeping babies, and as the old man rubbed his sleepy eyes, and looked up at me I fancied his face famil iar, and as he called out " Wilhelm 1" the' whole riddle was solved, and those were " Pilgrims of the Rhine-" Wilhelm arroused his sleepy lady love, and came forward to assist in getting the little ones to a place of safety, close ly followed by his companion. "Madeline, as I live 1" said I. "Aha !" said the old man, "Sind Si Herr Harris T" But we had short time for introduc tions, and hastened to get the drenched babies upon some piles of baggage, out of the reach of the spray. " Where is Fran Katrine ? " I asked. The old man shook his head sorrowfully, and kissing the child he held to his bos om, while he let fall a tear upon its face, only said, "She is dead we have left her in the seal" And that was the very baby that Net tie held in the cabin, two years before, away upon the Rhine; and now the daughter Mathilde, was all the mother her poor little sisters had, and she it was I saw sleeping with the babe, not a year old, upon her bosom, an hour be fore. The good Frau Katrine had set out wiih the rest, feeble in body, but full of hope ; but as they were too poor to pay for more than a steerage passage, where but few comforts could be had, she sick ened under the privation and eare of her dear babies, and a week before the ship reached the quarantine ground, she died, leaving her infant babe in the arms of her daughter Mathilde, who promised her dying parent to be a mother to the little orphans, in a strange land. Just at the peep of day, I had finish ed my slumbers, and turned for out ob servation. The wind had scarcely aba ted a jot ; the spray flew high above the pilot-house; the sheep -man declared his Merinoes would die in such a constant drenching ; but the babies of my good Schiller were waking up, as if nothing had happened, and perched upon stacks of bales and boxes, soon after taking their coarse breakfast with a better rel ish than the passengers in the cabin. So God gives his poor a capacity for enjoyment, suited to their condition. We should have been in Cleveland at 7 o'clock that morning, but by the force of the wind, we were kept back till after 1 P.M. Captain Hazzard was not sure he could go in that port at all ; but before we got up to the city, the wind hauled a little to the south, and by a skillful ma nceuvre, he laid his boat alongside the pier. Then there was a glad hurrying to get on the solid land ; the big iion bound chests of the emigrants were piled upon the dock, and the women and chil dren came out and shook themselves, like uncaged ducklings after a shower. By this delay, I had lost the early bain for Columbus, and so had to wait until evening. I went up town, to shake hands with the editor of the Ohio Far mer, and to telegraph to my expectant family, that I would be in next morning; at which time I tapped at my wife's win dow, lefore daylight, and thanked God to find all my dear ones well. Last autumn, I took a ride along the Little Miami Railroad, and stopping at , a porter asked me if I had any baggage fur the " Eagla Hal f Tim was something about the man that made me thick I had seen him before ; but while I was going off the platform, he took me by the hand, saying, in lame English, "Are yon Mr. H. ?" " So, so, Gottfried," said I, " do you live here ?" '5 Yes, and so does Mathilde, and the rest of us, and Wilhelm and Madeline." And sure enough, at the switch box I found Wilhelm, with his eye on the train, ready to set the switch. So I asked where he kept Madeline, and he pointed to a little cabin on the edge of the town. Of course, I must see Madeline, and after getting dinner, walked over to the cabin. There sat my Rhenish belle, awkwardly stitching at some brief gar ment, and upon a bed in the corner, lay the claimant to her labors, in the shape of another little Schiller ! " I see how it is," said I, " you took my advice, did you, and saved the fifty thalers ?" "Ah, yes," said she, blushing, " and we are just as well married, too, for a couple of thalers, and that is better than to wait half a year longer in Germany to earn the money ; and by next year we will save money enough to buy us this little house and lot, and then we shall be to happy." " You are right, Madeline ; Wilhelm was a trusty boy, and you will make him a good wife, I know." Such is a brief chapter, in three sec tions, of how Old Germany becomes Young America ; and now, dear read ers, for the third and last time, we will take leave of our Pilgrims of the Rhine. EXCESSIVE POLITENESS. Roland Hill was always annoyed when there happened to be any noise in the chapel, or when anything occurred to turn the attention of his hearers from what he was saying. On one occasion a few days before his death, he was preaching to one of the mostcrowded congregations that ever assembled to hear him. In the middle of his discourse, he observed a commotion in the gallery. For some time he took no notice of it, but finding it increasing, he paused in his sermon ; and looking in the direction in which the confusion prevailed, he exclaimed : "What's the matter there ? The devil seems to have got among you." A plain country-looking man immedi ately started to his feet, and addressing Mr. Hill in reply said : "No, sir, it aren't the d evO as is do ing this ; it's a fat woman wot's fainted ; and she's a werry fat 'un, sir, as don't seem likely to eome too again in a hur ry." "Oh, that's it, is it ?" observed Mr. Hill, drawing his hand across his chin ; " then, I beg the lady's pardon and the devil's too." CarXL.

To visit the mosques and the Seraglio Palace a firman or permit must be had from the Government, and that is to be paid for roundly. An officer or two must attend with his sword and staff, and they must be feed welL Then at every mosque and other sacred place you visit there are servants to be feed, and if a party get through the day's ex cursion for forty dollars they do very well. Mr. Brown, the drogoman of the United States Legation, kindly procured for us a firman and sent his own cevasse to lead us. The Government sent anoth er, so that we were well provided with an escort, beveral ladies loinea our party, and added largely to the pleasure of that delightful and interesting day. Where the Golden Horn sets up from the Bosphorus, the old city of Byzan tium stood, and Mohammed IL selected this unrivaled site for his palace, and laid out tne (rounds, and prepared a residence that has no equal in the East ern world. Armed sentinels admitted us by the great pavillion which is called the Porte a gate, and from this the Ottoman Empire takes its name. Fifty men are the usual guard at this door, We were at once in the midst of a vast court-yard (the whole palace grounds are three miles in circuit) and passing across it we were conducted into the palace. A flight of stairs brought us to the audience-chamber, a white apart ment carpeted and surrounded with i rich divan. The throne room was torn ished with chairs and sofas, showing a conformity to Western customs. Another and another chamber, and we entered the Sultan's bath luxurious ly fitted up, but without some of the contiivances for comfort which poorer people enjoy. A brass bar across the door we were passinsr. told us. or at a w least the guide informed us, that this was tne entrance to tne narem. no pro fane fool may croaa that threshold. - No man but the husband is allowed to enter the Turk's apartment for his wives But a long gallery opening near, was now entered, hung on one side with en gratings, chiefly of Napoleon's battles ; and on the other side, a row of windows looked out in the court.' This is the hall in which the one hundred and fifty wives of the Sultan are daily assembled for the amusement of their common lord Here each one may exert her art to win his favor ; and it is said that he drops his handkerchief at the feet of the one who has been the most successful. Through this hall we were led along to the private armory of the Sultan, and while admiring the pistols, swords, dirks, yataghans, cimeters, sabers, tt cetera, of elegant workmanship, adorned with gold and precious stones, my attention was directed to an adjoining apartment, the Sultan's bed chamber. Two janizaries with bayoneted guns stood before the open door, and permitted me to look in but not enter. It was reported among the company in the other room, that gentlemen were not allowed to go in ; and the ladies presuming on their priv ilege, hastened to step in, but the crossed guns of the guards brought them to a sudden halt on the the threshold. We could see the magnificent couch and its gold and damask, canopy, and the sump I nous furniture of the chamber where the most uneasy man in the Turkish empire has often sought in vain for sleep, that comes unwooed to him' who earns it wi'h the sweat of his brow and ds not wear a crown. In the gardens of the palace, and near the water's edge, are many beau tiful but small eottages, which from time to time have been erected at the desire of one or another of the Sultan's favorite wives. Fitted up according to the taste of each fair inmate, we could see in the low windows that open on the walk that they were very elegant and very oriental. The Sultan has the range of them all, as cages in which his pet birds are confined. And then we gath ered some flowers, for in the last of De cember the roses were in full bloom in the open air, and everything was fresh and green as May. Underneath the palace was the kitchen, and fires going as if aa ancy were to be fed from the great ranges and furnaces on which the dinner was even now cooking. Some of the pastry was served to ui, and proved to be excellent, though we did eat it in the kitchen. Von Hammer says that there are nine several kitchens, and that forty thousand oxen are yearly killed and here cooked, two hundred sheep daily, one hundred lambs or goats, and eight hundred and fifty fowls. But the Sultan does not re side in the Seraglio, he is at one of his many palaces along the Boaphorus, and the cooking now in process was merely for the retainers of the palace. His fu- ture residence will be in the marble pal- ! ace on the Bosphora. A thousand horses stand in the royal stables, which we passed on our way out; and the harness and trappings covered with jewelry, are displayed in a room over the stalls. It required an hour to look through the old armory, containing one of the rarest and richest collections of helmets. greaves, breastplates in form of stars, guns of strange patterns in use before locks were invented, and implements of war now obsolete, put terribly effective in their day and very curious now. The stock of arms all ready for use were fast diminishing by the daily demand for the war ; and probably some of the poor fellows that came on the steamer with me. were by this time eqnipped from this ar mory and marching to the field. In a gallery was a collection of the famous swords of .successive Sultans, from the splendid Damascus blade of Mohammed 1L Here, too, are the keys of all the cities of Turkey, mounted with gold, and deposited m token of their fealty to the Porte.

A celebrated character of the state of New York, holding a high! post in the law, was lately taken ill and confined to his bed for several days. His wife, who was an angel, of a woman, (as all wives generally are,) proposed to read for him, which he readily assented. " My dear, what shall I read ?' ' " Oh, I don't care much what, any thing you please." " But have you no choice, dear ?" " None in the world, love ; please yourself.' " Shall I read a chapter or two out of the Scriptures?" " Oh yes ; that'll do very well." " But what part of the Scriptures shall I read?" " Any part you like, love." , "But. dear.youmttst have some choice, some little preference, we all have that" " No, I have none in the world, dear; read any part you like best."

If the man who produces a spear of grass, where none before, is a benefac tor to his race, what shall we call tha army of 269,699 farmers of Ohio. But numbers are not all that is requir ed to constitute an army, and render it efficient ; there must be tactics, mili tary skill, and discipline. Without these numbers can avail but little. The 20, 000 undisciplined Mexicans, under the generals their country has ever produced, were routed by one fourth their number of disciplined Yankees. So in warring oa the inpediments that makes man eat his bread in the sweat of his brow, he must be disciplined in the art of peaceful war; he must be schooled in tactics of agriculture ; he should not attack tha strong fortress of the earth, and summon her to surrender her possessions of fertili ty, until he can bring to his aid, the tac tics taught in the school of science, and experience. To aid the strong arm, and active limbs, the enquiring mind and disciplined reason should be added. He should not only be able to say, I culti vate my land, but also to say, I culti vate scientifically. I adapt my crop to the nature of the soil ; if the soil is net ' suitable for it, I can, by fertalizers, and neutralize rs, render itsuitable, if too wet, I know I must drain it ; if too sour, I must lime it, if the surface is exhausted, I must plow in a crop of clover, or buck wheat in blossom, or peas in the green pod. When this army of Ohio farmers is thus drilled in the tactics of agriculture, we shall see our State bloom as the gar den of Eden, and peace, and plenty pre vail throughout our borders. OXim Partner PLOW DEEP, SOW CORN, &C. In a private letter just received, from our excellent friend William H. Ladd, he says : "Keep it before the farmers, that they must plow deep. I make i a rule to plow as deep as my plow and tha motive power will admit of. THE PROOF OF ITS EFFCTS. In plowing a fieldupon a hill side, for corn, last spring, the shape of the piece of ground is such, that going round the lower side, the horse were walking a little down hill, and we ma the plow full eleven inehet deep. The upper side, where the furrow slice had to be turned from tha mould board, up hill, we could not, with tha force we had, go more than seven or eight inches deep. Tha soil is pretty even in quality, though we have always considered the upper part of the field rather the best, yet with the same cul ture, last summer, except the difference in depth of plowing, the lower pari pro duetd more than double at wuuh corn per acre. Late in the the 8th month, we sowed the piece in question, all in rye, tha same day ; the lower part is well set ia rye, while only an occasionly plant ap pears on the upper part, and we are about to plow it up, and sow oats upon it SOW CORN. The grass roots being much killed by the drought of the past season, the next hav crop must necessarily be light and I hope thorn wilt urge the farmers, par ticularly, to sow corn oountirauy lor fodder, and so supply tha deficiency .
