GRANDFATHER'S OLD FARM,
GRANDFATHER'S OLD FARM, AND
WHAT WAS DONE WITH IT.
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)

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
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,)

? t with bis improvement; but thsl cultivator,
' A Hen called it, ."would'nt jrorK no bow,"

however; the. old gentleman continued

UNMANLY ASSAULT ON BONNETS.
Mr. Punch, as the scknowledged champion
of Ihe rights of woman (blesa 'em howtver

a mean and cowardly attach, made by a medi

delicate and fairly-like fabric, the female bon

increase of tic-douloureux in the forehead!"
He, moreover, bewails Hie predominance of

And why not? The fact is, poor women have

never before received by any other man in the
Keystcne Slate. The gleam of satisfaction
which yesterday lighted up the countenance
fall, and their joyfulexclomationi when they
heard the result, were indications that can not
be misread. We never saw so much enthusi-
sm so much joyfnlexcilement not by Dem
ocrats alone, but by men ef every shade of
politics as followed tbe announcement of bis
selection by an unanimous vote.
The Cleveland (0.,) Plain Dealer l:iys:
Thb Next President. The news of the nora
nation of Mr. liuchannn was received in this
city by the Democracy with an enthusiasm
wich is rareli equalled. That tins is the great
political event of the day is obvious to men of
all parties. The convention wss composed of
the best men of the Democratic party, gather
ed from every section between the Atlantic
snd the Pacific, and it thoroughly represented
the judgement and sentiment of the only na
tional party now existing in the Union. The
whole proceedings have been characterized
by harmony and magnanimity on Ihe part of
all, and the conviction lhat the decisions of
the Convention were to be the ruling policy
of the country codsed a c ol and dispassion
ate deliberation upon every step, every mea
sure and every vote. 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

The Toledo (Ohio) Rcpullican says:
This nomination removes all doubt, if any

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,
