I wsi on a trip in the cars lately and found myself upon the seat wiih a gentlemonly man advanced in years, to whom (as I honor old ace) 1 endeavored lo mokemjstlf agreeable, eu lout. . -V , ". , After the interchange ef a few commonplace teinarks,our conversation turned upon the sub ject of agriculture, the old and new modes of farming, &c I subsequently ascertained that my venerable acquainiance was a most intelli gent farmer, who bad retired in his old age upon a competency. As we dashed along in the cars he entertained me with the substsnce of the following narrative, the details of which ha -assured nie bad lfai.spired within bis knowledge. - Speaking nf the exciting progress ond im ' provemtnis in agriculture, aaid he, reminds me of an instance that occurred wiihin my re membrance, which I Will relate to you, if you ' are dirpnsed to hear it. I Ibauked Lira, a. d be li toe ted on as follows: . Borne forty years 01 more ago, a neighbor of niine in C, a Mr. smith occupied an immense iract of land, which be called a. ''farm." It was about thirty rods in width, aixi upwards of twawiiea w lenxfbt upon wlitcli he bad been brought up a "farmer, and Wbere bis fattier and grandfather bad lived before him. . Each generation of the Smiths thai bad dwelt upon this strip of. Isnd, hsd contrived to farm it, each in the same oiu way, year in ana year out, from father :o son. I he place had never known a dollar's incumbrance; scores of Hmiih's hsd been reared uprn it, generntion after generation came and passed away there, and the same cart pa: lis, ami the same dilapi dated Walla and shanties and decayed trees were still viible almost the same furrow bad been turned for a hundred years or more; when, as bod been the custom of the Smith families' on previous occasions, it finally came the turn of the occupant lo resign grandfathers , old place to h is only son, Ben Smith now come to thirty. t . For five and thirty yesrs at least Hen's father bad carriedon bis farm. In all thst'.ong pe:i od, and regular aa the, year rolled round, as regular bad Mr. Smith ploughed up his eight acres, mowed all the grass that Providence would grow for him, postured bis ten sheep, reared his four bead of cattle, fattened his three bogs, and Wintered as many cows. But this was not all. True Mr. Smith bad I great farm. He toiled like trooper, from daylight liil dark. ' He raised his own pork and corn (such as it was,) bis cattle and fodder; from bis own foiest the wood he burned; never oed any man a far thing. He contrived even to pay bis own town and county las. But be was literally "even witb the world," for be owed no one, and no one owed bint a dollar. And so be Jived up to seventy, i , - "Ben," aaid the old man to bis son, one eve ning, as tbeysat be tors the fire, "1 am getting old. I have worked pooty bard here, lor a good many years, rnd I have concluded to give ; imp. It ia yonr turn now." .r U "My turn for wbatf" aaked Ben. ; To tak charge of the farm, Ben. ' Yoo are young, stout and bealtby. I am going to give up the homestead to yoo; and if yon continue to labor eonatantly as I've done, and your father did afore us you can get a good.livin' offon'taswe have done. We can't lake noth- ing oat of this world with us, Ben. Naked we came into it and so we-musi go out". But ' the old place ia free from incumbrance, there -. never was a dollar mortgage on it, and I hope ' there never will be. 1 shall give you the farm , free and clear to-morrow. Ben slept on this, and the next day be was i snsster of the farm thirty rods wide and two i. vnd a half miles long. v '" , "1 aball take the place, father." be said. nd earry it on; but not as you and grandfather, 5 and bis fsther did." And thonrh tbe old rentlemin shook bis " fiead and looked earnestly over the bridge of bis specs st his son, Ben was as good ss nts r word; forthwith he went to work in earnest. Spring came. Bob went into the old eight ' " acre field sod ploughed op one half of it. : Upon this he hsd deposited the wbple of the V season's manure, Ihet bad hitherto for rears been sparsely spread upon doable Che surf see u He harrowed these four acres, and harrowed them well, ' Hoeing time came and Ben bad t only me half the space to go over. Though ' the 4n and potatoes looked.- finely, acd the heeta, the cabbagea, and the eairots grew mar- vallously, and the old man grew crusty, and ' declared it wooldnt do, there woukl'nt be v roota enough. But Ben want light along his , own way.: At the secoud toeing bea went into bis four ' seres; but not with a bud hoe. . He got some kind of a iimcrack.tea the old man termed it,) '.

Mr. Punch, as the scknowledged champion of Ihe rights of woman (blesa 'em howtver right and however wrong!, has to denounce a mean and cowardly attach, made by a medi cal practitioner in the human firm. upon that delicate and fairly-like fabric, the female bon net. .The dastard effects to "lament the great increase of tic-douloureux in the forehead!" He, moreover, bewails Hie predominance of "greot suffering in the eor," induced, as he firmly believes, "from the present absurd fash-1 ion of dressing the eck instead o' Ihe head." And why not? The fact is, poor women have been put loo much aback loo much on one side and Mr. Punch cannot but look at the herolcattempt make by '.he poor creatures to thrust the bonnet on the shoulder., as a noble resolution looppear as bare-faced as pinible. W'e yet hope to see a womnn as for oui of her bonnet as a snail con come cut of her shell; and 83 for tic-douloureux, tar ache, head ache and so forth, why, what are such cal l mi tits other than glorious? . Even ns soldiers rarry scars in honor and memory of their valor, so many women have ear ache, head-ache and lic-douioureux. as glorious life long records of the courage that laced all weathers without a bonnet. Mr. Punch hardly knows a more touching sight a sit'ht so convincing of the inherent energy and devotion of the sex than lo be holds beautilul, irogue c ream re ie,ring the east wind that at this moment (Mr. I'uiiuh doe not disdain to confess the weakness) makes him rejoice al the fireside like a crick et. It if, we tay, a beantiful und a touching spectacle to contemplate the young creature with a face relentlessly mottleJ by the east wind, her nose as lust dabbed with s blue bog, and the wind, like winding invisible steel, cutting at the very roots, of the loved one's hair, twisting like cork screws into the hollows of her all credulous ears, nnd suoil? ntering into the beloved anatomy, making of the nerves so many dealli-watcties tnat sliott lioond tic, it m.iy be for Ihe term of hernat urol life. The lite maybe blighted. Bui what of thot ? Can the loved one be less precious? Quite the' reverse. Even os we pay additional honor lo tha hero without arms or les, so are we prepare I to render deeper homage lo the woman whose whole ex islence goes upon such tic. Indeed, tor a wo man to be truly adorable, she cannot be too rhtimatic. We believe lhat real atiection to wards an object to be idolized inevitably com mences with n cold.

The dignified and de cided tone of the resolutions composing the platform touching every question of political uteres!, meets the most nearly approval ol sit Democrats. The nomination of James Bu chanan is conceded by all parlies to be equiv alent to an election. The Buffalo Courier, a leading Democratic poper in the Empire State, says: We have space to ssy little of thechsracter and qualifications of Jsmes Buchanan for the Presidency, and little is necessary, since bis name and the leading features of bis political carter are "familiar as household words" lo the gieat mass of tbe people of this land. They know him as a statesman of ability, as a man of tried integrity and high personal worth, as a cslm, judicious and firm man, ss an Americon gentleman, and as a sound, hon est, unwavering Democrat. He will command as he deserves, the confidence of the whole communitity of const rvative, high-minded men. Those who have been alarmed at the spread of ultraism at the north and south, and the utter recklessness wun Which political adventurers are playing their desperate games will feel that the Lnion will le sate in his hands. Uis past consistency as a public man, os well as the comprehensive Na.ional Plat form on which he stands, conspires to place birn bef re the people under circumstances peculiarly favorable and prophetic of success Not only will every true Democrat vote for him, but thousands ol men little known in pal H ics, and who seldom go to the polls, will be there to say by their suffrages lhat this mod agitation which is disgracing the country and endangering our institutions must be slopped; that they believe lhat the principles oi the pemonratic parly are those of the Constitu tion, and that its policy is the true one for Ihe country. This and more will be expressed by the popular majority which the Democratic electoral Ticket will receive in November next. The New Albany (Ind.)

The Louisville Dimoerat says: That the nun now selected as onr chitf standard-bearer isastalermanofgreal talents, of ample experience in public affairs, of emi nent personal and private worth, and wilballa eon nd snd reliable national Democrat, all must admit. Hia name hss been honorably and, firomineully'identiued with the political history of the country, and with that great uational party of which, for neatly half a century, be has been a member. His career has been a long and trill ant one. Uis record is now be fore the country; and though he may, anC most certainly will be, fiercely asssied by the ene mies of the Union and of Dtmocracj and the. foes of civil and religious ,l.ber;y in every quarter, yet his friendsstond prepared I" show, and demonstrate to nil national and intelligent men lhat he is eminently deserving .1 the high honor about to be conferred upon him, by electing him to the chief magistracy of the na- 1 ion lhat Ins election is demanded al the hands of (his people as a sacred and imperative duty, by every cocsidvration of honor and of patriotism. The Frankfort (Kentucky) Yromati says: Our Nohnee8. The lightening has broucht us the gratifying intelligence of the nomina tions made by tbe Cincinnati convention. Buchanan for President and John C Breckin ridge for Vice. The lightening was not swif ter than the enthusiasm which went front one Democratic heart to another on this announce ment. It was an enthusiasm that foretells tl.e doom of fanaticism in next November. While we write the "deep-mouthed eon non," at Ihe bidding of Captain M. Joyce, is thundering its loud voice over our little city, snd its echoes fall upon our ears as an earnest of certain suceess. Hurrah for Buchanan and Breckirritlge The Toledo (Ohio) Rcpullican says: This nomination removes all doubt, if any before existed, ai, to the result of the election i't November next) it is one eminently snd in every way 1 fit lo be made;' and its mere an nouncement falls like an exceedingly wet ' blanket on the half-kindled hopes of a dis served and discordant opposition. The lor-g public life of Mr. Buchanan, the prominent and distinguished position lie has occupied for. a third of a century, his intimate and tnorougb acquainiance with the business of the Govern ment, his long-tried patriotism, and his high character and commanding talents as a man and a statesman, leave noihing to be desired in our atandard-bearer. And his wide and well learned popularity, and the enthusiasm with which his nomination was received at Cincin nati the echoes of which are caught up and repeated in increasing volume by every bill from Maine to Texas afford a sure guarantee of bis triumphant election to that place which he is so sinply qualified to fill and to adorn, the Presidency ol the United Statea. " We take the following fiom a New York City journal! The Buchanan Pioneer Association of the city of New York, immediately on the receipt of the nomination, fired one hundred guns in the P.JiIi; after which ihe association met at the Pewter Mug, and completed its organiza tion by electing John Wilson Chairman, Wm. N. Brown, John Orr add Robert Donnell Vice Presidents, and James J Rik-y and George Can field Secretaries. The following resolu tions were unanimously adopted: Iietulmd, l hat recognizing (he long con tinued and eminent services, the lofty personal character, the distinguished ability and the tried aud unflinching patriotism of James Bu chanan, of Pennsylvania, we, the Buchanan Pioneer Association of the city of New YoxV, do hail his unanimous nomination by the Na tional Democratic I envention al Cincinnati, and us the candidate of their choice for the Presidency of the United States, with profound and sincere delight, and do indorse the same with all onr hearts. And furthermore, 'Htiohed, That in the combined vote of the TemociBtic delegations of the Stole of New York in his behalf, we greet the return of that union and harmony to our party which will insure the triumph of our principles, and the safety, stability and glory ol Ibis great nation; . . "Rctohetl, That forgetful of past differen ces, we will use all honorable endeavors to place our noble standard-bearer in the I'resi cential choir on the 4th of March, 1857, and pledge ourselves to unite hand in hand for the accomplishment of such a glorious work." Hon. Jamks Buchanan. The Washingtori correspondent of the Pittsburg fust says of James Buchanan." On the 13th inst.

Mr, Buchnnan no educa ted a lawyer, but he bns been in public life ever since 1314. In lhat year he was in the Slate Legislature, whers, he served two years, and declined a re-election. In 1821 he took his seat as Coi.gresSnian, and was in the House of Representatives just five sessions, or ten years.
