THE GAZETTE.
THURSDAY MORNING, APRIL 13, 1854.
THE LATE JUSTICE TALFOURD.
Charles Dickens has written a most tender
and noble tribute to the memory of the late
Justice Talfourd. The friendship between
these two gentlemeu must have been most
intimate to have inspired the affection so elo
quently presented in the obituary in the
“Household Words.” We have room for only
the closing paragraphs:
“The conscientious judge, the charming
writer and accomplished speaker, the gentle
hearted, guileless, affectionate man, has en
tered on a brighter world. Very, very many
have lost a friend; nothing in creation has lost
an enemy.
The hand that lays this poor flower on his
grave w as a mere boy's when he fir>t clasped
it—newly come from the work in which he
himself began life—li tie used to the plough
it has followed since—obscure enough with
much to correct and learn. Each of its suc
cessive tasks, through many intervening years
has been cheered by his warmest interest, and
the friendship then begun has ripened to ma
turity in the passage of time; but there was
no more self-assertion or condescension in his
winning gooduess at first than at last. 1 he suc
cess of other men made as little change in him
as his ow n.” _
THE LATE SEASON.
A Maine paper says, that, on the first day
of April, 1853, peas were planted, w here, on
the corresponding day of this year, snow
was lying three -feet deep. '1 he season is re
latively as late in Philadelphia as in New
England. Instead, however of such seasons
proving disastrous in the end to the farmer,
they generally turn out the most fortunate.—
Thu* was especially the case in 1843, when
the spring was like the present. 1 hat year
was long celebrated for its tine crops of hay,
as also for its wealth of fruit. The fruit crop,
in fact, is always better after a late spring,
for then the blossoms do not come out till
late, thus escaping being nipped by frosts.—
Crops also generally mature more rapidiv af
ter such seasons, for the summer is usually
hotter, and has fewer cold rains. In all high
latitudes, where the spring is universally late,
the fruits of the earth conic forward with
great rapidity, when once summer basset in.
This is particularly true of Sweden, I Denmark,
and the northern parts of Germany. It past
experience here, or the analogy of other lati
tudes, may be relied on, therefore, wc shall
have good crops of cereals this summer, plen
ty of fruit, and probably less variations than
common in temperature.
THE CASHMERE GOAT.
The editor of the Farmer and Planter says,
this goat, which has recently been introduced
into the United States from Turkey, by Dr.
Dayis, of S. C., is of a larger size than our
common goat, is as easily kept, and by his ex
periment is proven to be admirably adapted
to our climate. Its great excellence is, that
instead of a coat of hair, it has a fleece of tine
silky appearauce from four to six inches long
in one year’s growth. It is from the fleece
of this goat the celebrated Cashmere shawls
from China are made. Besides its beautiful
and silky appearance, textures made from the
fleece of this goat outwear all know n substan
ces. Socks made of it have been worn six
winters without material injury. They can
be shorn annually, and the average weight
of each fleece is about four pounds, and the
price is $8 50 to $9 per pound, being equal in
value to the united fleeces of about sixteen
Merino sheep annually. Dr. Davis consid
ers these so well adapted to the climate and
so valuable, that he refuses to sell full blood
ewes at all, but sells the bucks from $100 to
$200 each. He is very liberal, however, and
has given several to friends.
“Uncle," said a young man, who thought
that his guardian supplied him rather sel
dom with pocket money, and felt a little hesi
tation on beginning to make a request on his
relative’s generosity, “Is the Queen’s head
still on the shilling piece?" “Of course it is,
you stupid lad; why do you ask that? —
“Because it is now such a length of time
since 1 saw
“Pa, is Pennsylvania the father of all the
other States?” “Certainly not. my child,
why do you ask that question?” “Because
I see that all the newspapers call it Pa.’‘
