Carrots and their Cultivation. As wiuter fowl fur cattle and horses in con nection withhay, carrots are very valuable, ;w J should be grown by every farmer who has fitcck to consume them. Ou land properly prepared, their cultivation is at tended wiih little trouble, and tho return they yiuLl fully as profitable as that of any other product of the farm. The good in fluence of the carrot upon the health and thrift of animals fod in part upon them, has frequently boon remarked upon, and we now proposo to add a few hints upon the best mode of cultivation. Tho carrot, having a long tap root requi res a deep mellow soil'jof a ssmdy or hiamy character, though it will grow on a clay soil, '.ill is will drained and manured, aud large crops, have Leen produced in .such situal ions. The grcuud shall be comparatively free from stones, as theso obstruct the free growth of the roots. It should be ploughed deeply the deeper roots jthu better as tho carrot will go down as far as the soil is mellow, if it is as rich as it should be to sus tain a continued and vigorous growth. It should bo manured with at least thirty loads of compost or well-rotted stable, man ure, per acre, and very thorughly ploughed and harrowed, so as to bo mellow as well a.i rich, and then, if properly tended, a good crop of this valuable root will bo returned. Sward land, long seeded, and with a deep fertile soil, is well suited to tho pro duction of carrots. Manure freely upon tho sod, plough deeply and neatly, and then top dress with a liberal application of compast manures. Mix this intimately with the Eurfaec soil, by means of a gang plough, or cultivator, and harrow, aud then sow on the seed. In the use of such land, and by such a courso of treatment, a new surfaco soil, comparatively free from weeds, is gained, and the grass being entirdy turned under the expense of weeding is much less than on the ground prepared in a different manner. How to treat Kicking Cows. In the most cases the habit of kick ing is contracted during the first mouth afi tcr tho cow has had her first calf. If, as it is often the case with well-fed heifers; tho udder is a little feverish at the time, it, often becomes so soro that it is impossible kr the poor creature to stand still while the necessary milking is being done. Fol lowing 'the instinct of nature she kicks; and Sliding she is thus for a moment freed from puin, continues to do it till the anger of the mill cer is aroused, and then a bad matter is made much worse. It is better in tho first place to tie the heifer by the head, then set your left shoul der gently but firmly against her, just back of her right shoulder, grasp firmly the right fore leg, below the knee, turning her foot up backward till it touches the leg, thou slip on over the knee a strap, or hoop, or cord that will confiue it fast in that position. While standing on three legs she will find it difficult to kick so as to hurt you. Now take a convenient sized cloth, and wet and wash the udder thoroughly with tepid or cold water, after which milk her as care fully and tenderly as possible, using at the sumo time such gentle and soothing lan guage as is calculated to show her that you do not wish to hurt her, but let her stru" gle3 be ever so violent or provoking; miud you keep cuutrolc of your own temper. An outbreak on your part will as certainly be productive of a bad effect upou the cow, as an echoo will answer your own voice, or as your imago will bo reflected in a mirror. Kiuduess, combined with the perfect 2outrole you havo over her in thissituation, I consider much the best way of breaking hem; and after a few times 6hc will lift icr foot lo be tied as readily as a horse all to bo shod. Continue to milk her in his way until the soreness is gone and she will find it a gratification to be milked, will often meet you os she sees you coming with tho pail, and you will ever after find it easier to get along with her should her teats by chance get sore afterwardj.-Ou Fak.MKu. In Life lllmtraled. Cultivation of Cariwts.-As noon as the carrots appear, the cultivation and working of the ground should commence. Whilo the weeds are small, a light iron toothed rake is capital tool ; it gives a line mellow service, and the work of dres sing is a rapid one. The ground should be kept clean with the hoe and rake, until tho tops cover the surface, which they will do iu six weeks or two mouths time, when no further care will bo needed. Digging can be done in the case of largo crops with a plough, turning a furrow from the side of each row, when they can readily be ta ken out by the hand. Storo in heaps iu tho field for spring use, if cellar room is scarce, covering with straw and earth, as in burying potatoes. The Orange carrot is thought to be the most valuablo variety, though somo prefer tho White Belgium, as yielding larger tcropg. rora five hundred to a thousand bushels per acre is tho usual yield, though Biuall crops at the rate of fifteon hundred, are of frequent occurrence. At the lowest rate the cost is about six cents per bushel, and any and evcy farmer who keeps stock, cattle, sheep or horses, will find this crop a profitable one. Trial ou a small scale even, in better thau to neglect it entirely. Wool Grower and Sunk Ifojintcr. From tha Cleveland Leader A bit of Romance. . Five or six years ago, a rich Louisiana planter died, leaving an only heir, a daugh ter, who was not quite teventeen years old. She, together with her fortune, was placed in the charge of a g-tardian, who was dis tantly related to the family. Her fortune i anil her remarkable beauty, attracted the attention of many suitors,auioug whom was an accomplished young man from St. Lou is, whose only wealth was his profession. llis handsome person, and fasciuating man ners won the ladys affections, and, without the knowledge of her guardian, they were privately married. Shortly afterward they moved to gt. Louis, whe.re they lived together happy for a time, aud a bright future seemed to be before them. At the expiration of a year, the lady having attained her majori ty they returned to New Orleans, to claim her fortune and live in the splendid old family mansion. They were coldly receiv ed by the occupant, who deliberately in formed them the estate had passed to oth er hands. They at once applied to tho law for redress, and going through the protracted formalities of two or three fruit less suits, they were left penniless, and obliged to abandon the case. Friendless and dispirited, they returned to St. Louis, where the husband, like, many other hus bands, tried to drown the re meinbrance of bin disappointment in the fatal cup. His j wife entreated and admonished in vain. A separation was the consequence, and the husband became more reckless and dissi pated thau ever. Driven at hist to desper ation, the wife applied for a divorce, ob tained it, and retired to a convent. This restored tho wretched man to his senses; he abandoned his former associates, return ed to tho paths of virtue, and became an industrious and respectable citizen. A few months ago tho lady received a letter from the son of her former guardi an, informing her of his fathers death, of his inheritance of the estate, and of his de termination to make full restoration, clo sing with an appeal to her to forgive his misguided parent, and to come to New Or leans and enjoy her fortune. She at once complied with the generous request ; and all her inheritance, together with the ac customed interest, was restored to her. Now comes the strangest part of this most extraordinary affair. The young man offered her his hand in marriage, and plead with all tho earnestness of impassioned love. He reminded her of all their child ish attachment, of his deep anguish when she became the wife of another, of the long years of his silent sorrow. AH these remembrances came up before her mind, and gratitude plead eloquently iu his Javor; but at last the wife triumphed over the wo man. Sho thanked him, and gave him her simple blessing; told him she had lov ed but one, and could never love another; and eutnafed him to take back all her fortune, and permit her to return to the convent. Finding her resolution unalter able, the young man consented, on condi tion that she would postpone her return one month. He immediately wiote to the former husband, who was ignorant of what had transpired, offering him a first rate sit uation, on -condition that he would come immediately. The letter was signed by the principle of a well-known firm, who was apprised of every cireuniBtance in the case. As soon as the letter came to hand, the overjoyed recipient took passage for New Orleans. He presented himself at the place designated iu the letter, and at once made himself known by showing his credentials. He was conducted to the rcsidenco of tho generous heir, where, he was informed, the writer of the letter wait ed to receive him. His name was an nounced, aud he wa3 conducted into an el egant parlor, and there, alone, he met the woman whom he had neglected and dis honored tho woman who had been forced to leave hiin, but who would not quite give him up. A few days afterward, the city newspa per announced the marriage of Mr. and Mrs. . The estate was restored to the lawful owners, and the reconciled couple, made wiser and better by adversi ty, aud are living happy together. It is good to turn sometimes from the cares and turmoils of politics, and contem plate human nature rising up from the depths of misery and despair, casting aside selfishness, and reaching that standard of purity and happiness which so few attain. Tar, a Remedy for Horse Distemper. Thomas W. Ladd, of Smithfield, Jeffer son county, Ohio, writes tho Ohio Farmer that he has found a remedy and cure for "distemper" in horses. He sayB: "Having three colts sick with this din- case, an experienced farmer told me to use tar, and he thought the sick colts would Boon jecovcr, and that those who had not taken the disease would not have it at all, or but lightly. I followed his direction, to my entire satisfaction. I gave the colts morning and evening, as much as I could readily get into their mouths with a paddle. After a few applications, the sick ones com menced running at the nose, their appetites returned, and in a short time they had en tirely regained what they had lost from disease. Tho others never took it to my knowledge. Some prefer mixing fish-oil with the tar, but I used it alone, and I be lieve it to bo entirely sufficient, if the arti cle be good, pure tar. I would havo no faith at all in the coal tar now in up in some places." Lafayette Hit Religious Views. A well authenticated and highly inter esting passage in the history of General Lafayette, has recently been rescued from oblivion and placed upon record. The manner in which this developcmcnt has oc curred, is given iu detail in the New York Observer. Of the affair we will give a brief statemcut, in introJuting the histo rical passage There has been a dispute between Prof S. P. 15. Morse, of Poughkeepsie, N. Y., (the Telegraph Inventor,) and Dr. Spaul ding, a Catholic Bishop, on the authentic ity of the alledged sayiug of Lafayette : "If" ever the Likrlies of the United Stales, urc destroyed, 't will he. by Romish Priests." Prof. M. affirms, liishop S. denies, and charges the Professor with originating the j sayiug. He asserts that it is not only groundless, but is directly the reverse of the truth, making the French patriot say directly the opposite of what he did say. Ho theu gives an extract from a letter said to have bueu written by him from Paris, in 1S2!I, to a Protestant gentleman iu New York, iu which the following sentences oc cur : "I can not but admire your noble sen timents of devotbn and attachment to your country and its institutions. But I must be permitted to assure you that the fears which in your patriotic zeal you seem to entertain that if the liberty of the Uni ted States is destroyed, it will be by Ro mish Priests arc certainly without any foundation whatever. Au intimate ac quaintance of moro than half a century with the prominent and influencial priests and members of that chureh, both in Eng land aud America, warrants me iu assu ring you that you need entertain no appre hension of danger to your republican insti tutions from that quarter." Professor Morse pronounced this letter of Lafayette a fraud aud demanded evi dence of its genuineness Tho Jesuit man, hard pressed, or some adherent in his behalf, affects to give the title of a small work published at Paris, in ltfof), but does not give the publisher's name. This alleged French book proves to be a hoax or pious fraud, as the investigations of Professor Morse fully show. He says: "For myself, 1 need 110 other evidence of its forgery thau the letter itself affords, as quoted by you, especially as it is made manifest iu the light of my own personal intercourse with General Lafayette. My first expectation, indeed, was that I should actually find such a letter as you quote iu the alleged book, aud in such connection as would afford sonic clue to the culprit, artd so I sent to Paris to procure the work. To my surprise, 1 learned from my corres pondent that the most eminent bibliopho- lists of Paris, after dilligent search, know of no such icoi h, aud they write lue with one accord that "no such work is to be fouud in Paris !" I could hardly bring myself to believe, notwithstanding the well known and avowed principles of your cor poration warranted the cxtrcmcst distrust, that the whole fraud had extended not only to the forgery of a letter of Lafayette, but to the forgery of a false title to a false book, a false author, a false place of pub lication, a false date, a false size, a false number of pages, aud in connection with these, a purely fictitious account of the im aginary author, and all the other fabulous circumstances of its ideal existence ! But to this extent, iu the present state of the research; this pious fraud seems already to have reached. "Since writing to Paris, I find that it was not necessary for ine to have, written there, in order to ascertain whetucr euch a work had becu published even in any part of France. In the Astor Library, of New York, is the "Bibliographic de la France, oi? Journal General de I' Imprimeric, el de la Libruirc," which is a weekly period ical containing a complete catalogue of all the works published in Paris, or in the de partments, arranged iu three tables : 1st. Au alphabetical table of the wtrks ; 2d. An alphabetical table of the authors, and 3d. A systematic table of tho works. This catalogue is so comprehensive as to include everything that is published in Paris, dowu to a four-puyed ephemeral el ection address. "Iu company with the accomplished Li brarian of the Astor Library, I carefully examined this catalogue and tables for the years 183 1-5-30, and no such work, nor anything that could be mistaken for it, is therein to bo found. The most insinifi cent four-paged pamphlet is not omitted, and yet a work of so much political preten sion as to occupy 21' pages is omitted I With the fact bofore you, sir, you can draw your own conclusions, and tho pub lic will also draw theirs." Tho Professor asserts that he received from Lafayctto himself the motto which he ascribes to him, but that he was not the first who published and gave currency to it. He names several publications in which it appeared, so long ago as 1835 & 1837, and affirms that the writers did not get it from him. The saying of the-Geu- cral must therefore havo been expressed to others besides himself. In conclusion, he publishes a letter from Rev. Dr. Van Polt, an aged and respecta ble clergyman of tho Reformed Dutch Church. To the following extract from tho letter of this venerable divine, wo in- vito attention, as it is of great interest, pertaining to an interview had with thn ' n i ? - , . . 0 trcneral during his visit to this country in lft'25,and shortly after he had laid th coruor-etono of the Bunker Hill Monu ment ; "Of the conversations at both interview my recollection is vivid and distinct "On my next interview and conversation with Lafayette," says tho vencrablo Dr. Van Pelt, "after his visit and return from Boston, he said to me, 'my dear friend, I must tell you (something that occurred when 1 was in Bostou. I received a polite invitation from ho chief Catholic Priest or Bishop of the Horn in Catholic Chureh in Boston to attend his church on the Sabbath. I wrote him an apology, saying, as I never expected to be in Boston again, and as doriug the Revolution when in Boston, I worshipped sitting by the side of his ex cellency General Washington, and as I sco that the churcliaud" the pewsare the same, except as they are decorated with paint; I wish to occupy the same seat iu that chureh on tho Sabbath. He took it in great dud geon, that I did not attend his church. But I could uot help that. I followed my in clination. Now, my friend, I must tell you, that I was brought up in France a Roman Catholic, and believed that tho Roman Catholic Church was tho only true and mother church, till I cume t this country, where I saw his Excellency General Wash ington, and the officers of the American army of different religion, worshipping in different churches. My eyes were opened. I see men can be of different religion, and worship in different churches, and yet be good Christains;' then saying, 'It is my opinion that, if ever the liberties of this country, the United States 0 America are destroyed, it will be by tha sttblilily o tue Roman Catholic Jesuit Phiests, foil they are the most crafty, dan gerous enemies to civil and religiol'8 liberties. They have instigated most of the wahs IN Euroi'E.' He further said, 'I wish my country, France, had such government aud national liberty as you have in this country.' To which I replied, asjiny opiuion, that neither Franco nor any other country could havo national liberty without the free circulation and knowledge of the Bible. To which ho gave ready and cordial assent. "With sincere respect and esteem, "Your obedient servant, "P. J. VAN PELT: "Prof. S. F. B. Mouse, Poughkeepsie, New York." A Temperance Anecdote. We have never seen scriptural quotations more aptly applied, thau in tho following dialogue, which took place at the table of Bishop Doanc : It is stated that Bishop Doan, of New Jersey, is strongly opposed to temperance. A short time since. Rev. Mr. Perkins, of the same denomination, and a member of the order of ''Sons," dined with the Bishop, who, pouring out a glass of wino, desired the reverend gentleman to drink with him, whereupon he replied : "Can't do it, Bishop, ;wiuc is a mock er." "Take a glass of brandy, then," said the distinguished ecclesiastic. "Can't do it, Bishop, 'strong driuk is rafiinx." By this time the Bishop, becoming some what restive and excited, said to Mr. Per kins : You'll please pas the dec inter to the gen tleman next to you." "No" Bishop, I can't do that, 'woo unto him that puttcth the bottle to his neigh bor'ilips." What was the peculiar mental condition or moral estate of tho Bishop at this stage of the proceeding our informant did not state. Carbagks. Tho value of cabbages for feeding, especially dairy stock, is probably greater than is usually supposed. The field cultivation of this plant is much on the increase among the farmers of Great Britain. The amount ofnutriincnt matter which is capable of being raised from an acre of land under cabbage is, comparative ly with most other crops, very large; and with an extended knowlcdgo of this fact, .the cultivation of it will be probably much extended. The land requires to be rich, deep, and somewhat moist. Tho rows should be at least 30 inches apart, and the plants not less than 24 orO inches. The two best varieties for field cultivation arc the Drumhead and York head. Summer Cress Goods.
