"Can goody4tfjpe*ed farms be rented reason w " An intelligent farmer, disposed to cultivate the farm yot only to his beat present advantsgo bat also to-the advantage of the proprietor, can hire very reasonably. Id answer to another question, we remark, that farm stock ia hold generally at rather low prieee, but that g*od work oxen, horses, and mules, range in pricc about as they average throughout the N. K. and Middle states, say 980 to $120 for oxen per yoke ; 3100 to S150 for horse* and mules. Good horses and good mules are often sold for less than 9100, but we think the priccs named will fairly average as abave named. 'llow cold in winter, how hot in summer?" It is pretty correctly stated ou the fouith page of this paper, that the tomperatur? avera ge* in summer about 80°. Last summer the mercury was up to 103 doring the hottest part of the day for four days; but in the evening we had cool, refreahing western breeses, and we can atfely aay that that temperature was not oppres sive. We had a frost the past summer in June, hat it was not Mvero enough to injuro the coru In this neighborhood, Some of the moat tonder garden vegetation was injured. The mild weath er begins early in Spring—one month earlier titan in Maasachusetta, and continuea about a month later. We had five months of what is ealled '-growing weather," thia year. In win ter, we have so mo sharp frosts, and ice freecca sometimes eight inches thick. It is Mid that the Ohio freezes over at thia point, some seasons when the water ia low, but it has oomc nowhere near it for the past two Winters. Laat winter it wonld have been difficult to 6nd ice at any time ire inches thick. For the paat four weeka the thermometer Uae indicated a rango of tempcra t«ri tfefc 10°' to 70°, remaining at about 10° two naorniogs for half an hour after son rise, ■then going op to 35° and 45° in the warmest part of the daj. Since the aboye fu written, we havo had colder weather : the mereary baa been at cero twice. Two days in succession it did not get above 10°. It has been freezing weather for a week. Tbo toil ia principally clay, with sand in some place >, and on lh« north sides of tbo bills, most ly, • black, loose loam. The facc of tbe country is very hilly. It is covered with small streams, and numerous val leys fir their outlets. Some of tbe Creek Val leys are wide and tbo soil rioh. The hills are found to be most admirably adopted for the growth of frait. On tho' elevations the f. uit is ▼ery seldom injured b^Trost. Trees grow well, begin bearing early, and do well overy year.— Peaches thrivo extraordinarily on the hills.— An orchard eighteen miles from here, has borne good crops every year for twenty years. Grapes do well, too, and can be very profitably cultiva ted, and the clitnatc urges thorn to constant and laxnriant production. All kinds of frait, when cultivated, produco liberally. We suppose it Say be claimed that it is a good section for fruit from the fact that a good variety of good fruit grows wild ; wo now call to mind apples, plains, psw paws, persimmons, blackberries, raepberries, huefcloborrios, strawberries, May apples, &c.

We hope to be able soon to anirouuoe something in regard to thia matter that wilt be peculiarly interesting to the people of lliia scction. CEREDO IN WESTERN VIRGINIA. Cercdo is locatcd in liia South* stern orner of Virginia, Wayuc County. The county is bounded on the North by the Ohio river, on the South and We»t by tlie Dig Sandy river and Kentucky on the opposite* shores, and extends into the interior forty to fifty miles. It is about 100 mi es East from Cincinnati, uO from Tarkersburg, 400 from Washington, 830 from Kiclimond, and about 1,000 miles from Boston, Mass. The site of Ceredo is at the mouth of Twelve Pole, a crcek rising sixty miles back in the country; two miles from the mouth of Dig Sandy, and nine miles from the mouth of Quyandottc river, and em braces a section of nearly two miles of rich bottom land on the bank of the Ohio. The centre of the, town is on an elevation twenty feet above high water, and commands a fine view of tho river for ten miles up and two miles down that stream. Twelve Pole Bar, in tho river a breast the town, is til head of low water navigation. The point has been sele eta the terminus of tho groat Virginia Central Railroad, con necting Norfolk with the Ohio river. TUB CLIMATE. The olimate is mild and peculiarly salubrious. The district embraced within Wayne and the adjoining counties, is hilly and mountainous, and furnishes a quit* even temperature, and most of the time a healthy and invigorating air. The hills have numerous springs of wattr, and through tho valleys run little tributaries to the larger croeks thence to the Ohio, In tho winter the weather is ahangeble from frost to wet, but very little of the extremes, except occasion ally. In the summer the mercury rises to 100 often, bat the weathtr is tempered by mountain and forest breeses, and reduces the average to about 80. No particular kind of diseaso is prevalent here; fever and ague so ooinmon in most river and prairie coun tries, is only rarely known. THE SOIL OF WESTERN VIROIKIA. A (correspondent irou» rtew Tork Bute, expresses regret that tin soil here it clay and lot in, and would prefer' sand and loam. We do not know the reason of Ilia preference, and think he would find no better land auywhars, *ven 'vhers It is t%nd and loam. This writer mentions in hia letUr tliat ha under atanda the cultivation of frnits and trees. We repeat what we have before eaid on thi 'subject, we tbink this is the y%rj best location a man aonla select for the cnltivaUon of fruit trees. Any amount of land can be purchased for $0 to $10 per acre, on which applea, pears, peaches and grapes can be raiaad every year without fail. All tha evidence we liava on this point froirf the old residenu here is to this effect. Peaches invariably do well on the bills in this region; and thongh grapes have not been cultivated to a great extent, all experience here, and on the other aido of the river, below, is in favor of the aaaertion, that grapea are an abundant and paying crop. The mar kets for these things are resdy and paying. These hills are most of them now cevored with tim ber, though in many instances a port Of the high land has been cleared and used for corn, wheat, or pastur age. Perhaps nearly half oL the land offered, and oalled hill la^d, in this immediate vicinity, has been worked upon more or less, and much of that contain ing large quantitiefof limber may be eaeily prepared for fruit trees. For a man who knows bow to nan age tbe young trees, we tbink no better investment of the kind could be named. The warm seasons are long, the hills full of springs of good water, and benntiM' locations for building dwellings, abundant in every direction. The only objection we have heard is the want of roads, but that is a light one in our view, and will be nothing four years from now. For cultivating fruit and garden vegetables both, part hill land and some bottom.Isnd, making tlis whole come quite cheap, would be a good investment. The bottoms are very rich an>l usually high priced; a man unwilling to pay $80 to $60 per acre for bottom land, could buy one-third bottom land and tbe balance in the hills, and get it cheap, and realise immediate returns from his investment.

A Mrs. SUhennan, who wm brought up m a Preebjteriap^ made public profession oTthe Jewish faith'at a Jewish synagogue, and wju received into the Isrselitisn fold. Shelter is a want of iho first no ccssity in cold weather, for stock, and no farmer may ncglcct with safety or economy many provisions of this na ture. The farmer needs a good house for the comfort of himself and his family, a barn to keep his grain and fodder from the weather, and stables to protect his cattlo from cold storms. Sheds, stables, feeding racks and fee ding troughs, often aavo in one win ter their entire coat, by avoiding the needless consumption of food to im part warmth, and by preventing a waste of fodder under foot. Much of the profit of rearing cattlo depends upon the manner of keeping them in the wintor. If they aro suffered to lose flesh during tho cold season, and are turned out to pasture "spring poor," it takes a long time for them to regain what they have lost.}, The frructlct) of feeding and leaving. *ock in the open fields, without shelter or any protection from the cold and se vere storms of winter, is a cruel one. And'ilmt animals should by such neg leet becomc poor, or even diseased and die, is not surprising. Though provided with sufficient food, stock can not thrive under such treatment. It is true, strong animals may endure it but what becomes of the young and the weak ? It is useless to say that good animals can be raised under such treatment. It is the truest economy that looks closcst to the comfort and thrift of the stock on the farm. A carpenter wlio always prognosti cated evil to himself, was one day upon the roof of a five story building upon which had fallen a rain. The roof being slippery, lie lost his footing and as he was descending towards the eve exclaimed, 'Just as I told you!' Catch ing, however, in the tin spout, he kick ed his shoes off, and regained a place of safety, from which he thus deliver ed himself—"I knowed it, there's a pair of shoes gone to thunder 1" How easily ono can tell whether a man is glad from within or whether it is only the play of sunbeams chanc ing to fall upon him. Happiness is not the work of chisel and mallet, nor mortised into the soul, but "put out," like the arms of a tree whoso green, untrammelcd leaves flutter with the life it shares. Manners are the shadowstif virtue; the momentary display of those qual ities which our fellow-creatures love and respect If yfp strive to hecontjf what we strive to appear, manners may often become useful guides to the per formance of our duties. "Perhaps Brother Jonathan docs carry his nands in his pocket," said a drawling Yankee in dispute with an Englishman, "but the difference be tween him and John Bull, is, that Bro ther Jonathan always has his hands in his own pocket, and John Bull has bis in other people's.
