Charles Barnard, in tho last n timber of the farm Journal, makes tho following satisfactory communication On this subject. Wa hate never had a doubt as to the ad vantages of judicious Rubsoiling. Uaviug directed my attention somewhat to a deeper cultivation of the soil, and ad vantage arising therefrom, in the fall of '52, 1 purchased a Michigan Double Plow, mid used il for plowing my oats stubble, (drat hauling out the manure which cover ed but a part of tho field,) and plowed it to the depth, the mauure and a greater part of tho top soil, it gave the field a dif ferent appearance than it ever presented before. A subsoil of five or six inches seemed but a poor prospect fof a crop of wheat, and the question was frequently asked. "What do you expect to raise on that field?" However, I prepaied ground drilled in the wheat. It came tip uncom monly well and soon covered the ground. As to the average yield I cannot say, not having threshed all yet. But I am confi dent thatf on tho manured part there was at least twenty-five bushels per acre. To the remaining part of tho field, applied 330 lbs, of Jordons phosphate of Lime per acre, which did not benefit tho whout much, but had an astonishing effect on the young tim othy forcing it to such a growth as to in jure the wheat. Tho grain on this part was purfect and weighed heavier than the other, but the" wheat did not shell out hence less tho yield. In the spring of '54, I used the same plow for corn, plowing the same depth. I plowed abont six acres with it, leaving one acre in the middle of tho field, for I used a common plow, pre pared the ground and planted tho corn. It came up equally well all over the field, and no difference could be seen for two or three weeks, when thero was a marked dif ference in tho color. That on the subsoil ed part was a pale yellow, and looked rath er sickly, while the other was a dark green, and looked more like making a crop. This had a tendency to doubt on my part as to its answering for corn. Bnt as the season advanoed so did the corn, particu larly that which grew on the subsoiled part vof tho field, and in a few weeks there was also a marked difference in favor of that subsoiled, and the yield was one-third more per acre, and of asuperior quality. I have also used it. for vegetables, and find the same ' beneficial results. I will add that I havo full faith in subsoiling, and believe the Michigan Double Plow to be prefera. tie to any other that has come under my notice. Settitg Out Trees. On the opening of early spring, a large proportion of onr readers are particularly interested in any plain, simple directions as to the best manner of setting out trees, and especially so, when in that way, common fatal errors are avoided. Let us therefore suggest. 1. Do not set them deep- This is the secret of the grand discovery of tho great law of vegetation, for which Russell (,'oiu stock asked the small sum of one hundred and fifty dollars : "That the "seat of life,' in a tree or plant is just at the point where the earth should cease to cover the foot of the tree. If cov ered deeper it strangles the tree at said seat of life or forces it into sending forth suckers, which stifles all healthy progress in the trees." Now, the discovery is not a new one, that trees must not be too deeply planted ; certainly no deeper than they were when growing in the earth previously. With out doubt thousands of dollars worth of trees aro annually lost to our country by this simple error. 2. Put nothing but pure and finely pul verised earth around tho roots. Many persons are told ther lands want manure, ashes &e., and not having time to manure and ash their whole field, they as a substi tute, put these substances inta the holes for the trees, and mingle it in tho earth with which they cover the roots. This is all rong. The soil may need manure and ashes, but these should be composed in the soil before allowed to come in contact with the fibrous roots of tho young tree. 3. Mulch tho tree after setting out. Mulching consists in piacing the manure! bo it new or old leaves, tanbaik or whatev er is used, loosely on the Burface of the pronnd for a considerable space aronnd the tree. On no account mix it with the soil in transplanting. 4. Tho first step, and most important in prepaiing for a fruit yard, is to thor. ouchlv drain the soil. The tree cannot bo healthy and vigorous witHout this. 6. Take cate of tho tree after setting it out. Many persons do not bestow as much labor on a tree, which ought in ten years to yield an income of ten dollars per an num, as they do on half dozen hills of po tatoes. They do- not seem to bo aware how great the difference is between the quality and quantity of fruit on a kindly treated, well fed tree and that of ono half starved nnJ dwarfed. Let it be always re membered, that whatever is worth doing at all, is always worth doing well. Am AgxicdtuTaVU: A spirit of kindness is lovely in the aged, beautiful in tho younrand indispensi ble to the comfort and happiness of a fami- The First Index Expwgatorius. That most narrow-minded aod bigoted monarch, Charles V., has the honor, orin faniy rather, of being the author of tho first Index Expurjratoriua. ' In tho year t546, being desirous of arresting tho pre press of the new opinions in Flanders, he directed the theological faculty of the Uni versity of Louvain to draw Tip a catalogue of such books as ought not to be road by the people. Ten years later, this cata logue was by an imperial decrco much en larged. Tho pope did something of the same sort, but only with referenco to his own temporal dominions. But in 155!), Paul IV. resolved to frame a catalogue on the most rigid principles, and mako its ob servance universal. This Index was ar ranged in three divisions. The first con tained the names of authors whose whole works were interdicted. The second em braced the names of those authors some of whose works only were specified and for bidden. Tho third pointed out certain anonymous publications which were un lawful to be read. To which was added a list of more than sixty printers whose pub lications were all forbidden, no matter in what language they worn printed, or what subject they treated. This was the origin and foundation of the famous Jndex Ex purgatorius, by which Homo has been striving to reduce the world to the darkness of the middle ages. The condemned books were doomed to the flames; and severe penalties were decreed against those who should neglect to give them up. The pro mulgation of this barbarous decree spread consternation throughout Italy; but not withstanding the reluctance and hesitation manifested in certain quarters, the work of destroying heretical books commenced and went bravely on in all parts of that country. All libraries, public and private, felt the expurgating progress. An im mense number of books were consumed. The trade of the printers and booksellers was ruined. Tho disastrous effects were felt not only at Venice, where so many books had for a century been published, but also at Lyons, at Geneva, at Zurick, at Basle, at Paris, at Leipzic, and at Frank-fort-on-tho-Maine. Not only were the books which had been written by Protest ants, and by those who were suspected of favoring tho new opinions, destroyed, but even those which contained any notes or scholia written by such persons. All the works of Erasmus, and also the editions of Cyprian, Jerome, and Augustine, which ho published, were condemned, because they were polluted with his critical anno tations. Upon the death of Paul IV., a new Index was published by the Council of Trent, which was more select and dis criminating. It included a great number of Protestant authors, but it omitted some Popish ones, whose sentimeuts were so similiar to those of the Protestants on cer tain points, that they had been put into the first Index. From this epoch com menced the barbarous practice of defacing and mutilating those portions of certain works which were considered worthv of condemnation. This was sometimes done by besmearing tho heretical page with some black adhesive substance, which rcn dc.ed it illegible. Sometimes the prohib ited portions of a work were covered with prints taken from other works, so as to present a most wonderful appearance. Sometimes the condemned pagesor parts of pages, were wholly or partially torn out. Dr. Baird't Sktteha of Protestant ism in Italy. Kn ow Nothing Progress. The Know Nothings of Massachusetts held a State Convention in Boston, on the 1st inst. Tho attcndcncc was large. Hunker officers were thrown overboard, aud thorough auti-slavery men substituted by largo majorities. Tho question of sla very was fully discussed, amid much excite ment, and resolutions adopted declaring tne nostnity or mo orucr to slavery, iierc are the resolutions : Resolved, That whilo tho American party of Massachusetts fully recognizes the rights of tho States to regulate their own domestic affairs, we claim and shall under any circumstances exercise the right to re lievo tho Federal Government from all con nections with, and responsibility for the existenco of the Sectional Institution of Slavery. Resolved, That wo discountenance all attempts to stifle the freedom of discussion, and the freedom of action upon all tho great moral questions of tho ago, and will resist any attempt to exclude from our ranks any person on account of his opinions upon such questions. This is progress ijn the right dircction. Wo hail it with joy. It is said that the order in this Stale have placed themselves substantially on the same ground. Bcu con. Rules Tor Improvement.

"' Ah, these lit tlo children! little witches! pretty oven in all their thoughts and absur dities! See, for examplo, yonder little fol low in a naughty fit, ho has taken his long curls over his deep' bluo eyes tho fair brow is bent in a frown the roso leaf is pushed up in defiance and the white shoul der thrust forward. Can any but a child lotk so pretty, even in their naughtiness? Then comes tho instant change-flashing smiles and tears as tho good comes 1 ack all in a rush, and you aro overwhelmed with protestations, promises, and kiss es. . They aro irresistible, too, these little ones They pull about the scholar's pen tumblo sommcrsetts over his hooks, and what can you do? They tear up newspapers-li ter the carpets break, pull, and upset, and then jabber and talk unintelligible English in self-defense and what can you do for your self? "If I had a child" says the precise man, you should see! lie docs havo a child and his child tears up his papers, tumbles over his things, and pulls his noso like all other childrcn- and what hai tho precise man to say for himself? Nothing. lie is like every body else "a little child shall lead Vvn." Poor little children, they bring and teach us human feelings more good than they get in return. How often does the infant, with its soft check and helpless hand, awaken a mother from woridliness and ego tism to a world of new and higher feeling. How often does the mother repay this, by doing her best to wipe off, even beforo the time; thedew, and fresh simplicity of child hood, and make her daughter too soon a woman of the world as she has been. The hardened hcai t of a worldly man is touched by the guiltless tones and simple caresses of his son; but ho repays it in time by imparing to his boy, 'all tho crooked tricks aud ways that have undone him self. Go to the jail the penitentiary-and find the most sullen, brutal, and hardenedthen 'ook at your infant son. Such as he is to you, such to some moth er was this man; That hard hand was soft, arid delicate that tough vciee tender and lisping; fond cyc3 followed as he played and ho was rocked as something holy. There was a time, too, when his heart, soft and unworn, might have been molded to to the questionings of his Maker, and been sealed with the seal of Heaven. But harsh hands seized it and it is over with him for ever. So tho tender weeping child he is mad tho callous, hearties man, of the all believ ing child tho sneering skeptic, of the beautiful and modest-the shameless aban" doned; and this is what the world does for the little one. A Temperance Story. One evening last week we took our place at tho supper table of a Cincinnati and Louisville packet. Supper and convert tion had progressed some beforo wo were j son tod. 1 An animated discourse was coin? ! 1 ,.,,,, , on 'twist an excecaincrly sober-faced lady and a gentleman, on the subject of temper ance. "Oh!" exclaimed she, with horror depic ted on her thin lips, "I do despise the whiskey drinker." The gentleman dropped his knife and fork, seized her hand and giving it a hear ty shake, we thought tears were going to drop from h"s twinkling eyes. "Madam," said he, "I respect your sen timents and the heart that dictated it. I permit no person to go beyond mo in de spising tho wiskey drinker. I have been disgusted on this very boat, and I say it now before our worthy Captain's face. What, I ask you, can be raoro disgusting than to see well dressed, respectable, ay, virtuous looking young men, whoso moth ers are probably even now praying that the tender instruction by which' their youth was illumiuatcd, may bring forth precious fruit in their maturity.
