This article is now, tor the fourth season,
brought hetoie the Agricultural public, and
claim* d to he the original Manipulated Guano—
not a bag was ever introduced prior to Novem
ber, 1850, manipulated by other machinery
than toy own, and uniter my able and compe
tent Superintendent, (stiii in charge;) persons
having purchased piior to that date, and since
as K ETTLEW ELL S M A N I P U L A T E D
GUANO, may rely upon getting the same arti
cle, and of Uniform quality. It has met with
unprecedented success—in no instance to my
knowledge, has it failed to equal Peruvian
Guano in first crop; in most instances excelling,
and far better as a permanent fertilizer—noth
ing could he more simple or calculated to in
spire confidence—a union by perfect and costly
machinery, which no farmer can approximate
to by mere mixing ol the best Phosplratic and
Peruvian Guanos, integrated halt and hall. ie
ducing the Ammonia ol the Peruvian Guano

MISCELLANEOUS READING*
HAND SHAKING.
* * * * Some honest and well mean
ing shakers carry the thing a little too far for
personal comfort. There, for instance, is
John Handy, a man for whom we entertain
t-e highest possible feelings of respect nrd
admiration. lie is as good and true now as
he was when he laid in the cradle and heard
about the “bogies” who come and carry
naughty little children away. A kinder and
sincerer mao in all the relations of life than
John never eiisted. His stature is great —
When last put upon the scales he weighed
close upon two hundred pouods, and he tow
ers to an altitude of six feet two—by actual
measurement—in his hose. Atlas would
have coveted bis breadth of sho Jders. II;*
• hand is broad, brawny, and not scrawuy at
ail. It may be easily conceived that, w ith
unvarying good health and equanimity ol
temper, John Handy’s physical strength is
by no means contemptible. We are slowly
recovering from a recent pressure of his hand,
lie seized our tender bundle of flesh aud
hones as if it Imd been a collection of rags.—
We have never had our fingers in a vice; we
don’t know how hard a lion might bite, if ho
wanted to, but we do say that a vice can't
exceed greatlv in intensity the compression
of our friend Handy's band. Once up aud
once down, and then a fast grip and a series
! of shakes which sent sharp shooting pains all
over our body. We really entertained ap
prehensions of never getting our fingers apart,
nor of regaining the perfect use of the high
ly important portion of our frame, so ruthless
ly crushed Now', we love John Handy, and
the good soul which is indexed by the hearty
hand. But a due regard for our physical
condition compels us to protest against his
terrible, vice-like pressure. If we were lia
ble to meet John frequently in the course of
! a day we should certainly wear our right
arm in a sling and carry our left hand in a
very deep pocket.—Philadelphia Journal.
THE MEMORY OF A GOOD MOTHER.
How often, when the syren voice of the
tempter whispers in the ears of the frail
child of mortality the words, ay, the very
voice tones of warning, are remembered and
the snare broken. Long grass may he
growing over the hallowed • pot where all the
earthly reposes, the dying leaves of autumn
may he whirled over it, or the chill whito
mantle of winter may cover it from sight, yet
the spirit of such a mother is always by the
side of him when walking in the right path
and gently, sadly, mournfully calling to bim
when wandering off into the dark paths of
error and crime. _ _ _

Middleburg female institute.
—This Seminary is located in Middle
Loudoun County, Va., under the charge ot
M iss K. Tebbs, and competent assistants. For
the salubrity of its climate, and the refinement
of its society, the village is unsurpassed. It is
situated on the Turnpike, rfbout half way be
! tween Alexandria and Winchester,and is acces
! sible to “The Plains,” a Depot on the Manassas
1 Gap Railroad. One of the most important con
' siderations presented to parents in the situation
of the School, is its remoteness from the temp
tations incident to cities.
It is the desire of the Principal to render tbe
1 School inferior to none in its advantages, and to
! accomplish that object, no expense will be
spared.
The fourth annual session of the above named
Seminary, will commence on the first Monday
in September, and close the last of June with an
exhibition, at which Gold and Silver Medals and
Premiums will be awarded to those pupils who
distinguish themselves in their respective de
partments.
