FAREWELL. . . ;.
We may not meet again; Yet oft when lost in fleer, The olden hope will rise. Like ppirits from the deep ; While not a bird that wings Its flight oc'r earth or sea, But whispers, as it sings, , Some thought, loved one of tliee. We may not meet again ; , , For earth has many way , And lips in other lands .Axe voiceful in thy praise ; But thy sweet lute and songs, The places where we met, The glen, the fount, the tree, i All bid me not forget. We may not meet again ; But oh 1 from round mv heart The " light of other days,' Alasl will ne'er depart ; But like some lonely star, That lights the deep blue sea, Thy beauty shines upon The wave of Memory. PHILOSOPHY OF DRUNKENNESS. Oinomania or insanity for wine, is the sub ject for a late article in the "American Journal of insanity." The object of the writer is to show that drunkenness in many of its pluses is a mental disease, sometimes hereditary, and sometimes arises from other causes. lie di vides the disease of drunkenness into three classes shutting out occasional inebriety, and cases evidently controllable by the drunkards volition, from the classification. Tlw three va-1 rieties of oinomania, according to the writer in the Journal, are acute, recurring and chronic. The accute generally occurs after vital pros- j t ration produced by fatigue, excess or other ex-1 citemcnt, and is the forra of the disease most j easily cured. The patient feels an irresistible desire to indulge in intoxicating drinks. He is generally alive to the impropriety of his conduct but finds it impossible to resist the mania for liquor if there is any possible way of gratify ing it. If he can be prevented from taking in toxicating fluids until the vital powers rally, the disease disappears for the time being, and in Nome instances forever. It is alleged that this phase of oinomania, like the recurrent and the chronic, is sometimes hereditary. The recurrent form of the disease is more frequent than the acute, and more diflicult to cure. It comes on in paroxysms. Patients so affected, says the writer referred to, may abstain for weeks or months from all stimulants; and may even loathe them ; but, at last they become uneasy, listless, depressed and irritable. They feel restless; they are incapable of exertion. They are conscious, all this time, of the impen ding paroxysm, and generally struggle against it till the impulse becomes irresistable, and then they plunge suddenly into- the wildest intoxica tion, imbibing quantities that would be thought sufficient to kill ordinary men. After an inter val of a few days the paroxysm passes off. The intense longing for ardent spirits subsides, and the patient returns to the ordinary mode of life.. The victim of this recurrent form of ot.i omonia, frequently before (the paroxysm comes on, leave their families, seclude themselves in distant taverus, and thero drink to intoxication till the attack passes off; others shut them selves up at home, denying themselves to all visitors; and others again wander about the streets, till arrested or picked up by some friend. Physicians unite in pronouncing an Insane Hospital the only fit place for such persons un curcd ; and the cure usually requires not less than two years. The victims of recurrent oin vmonia, except during their paroxysms, are in. nil respects sane, which renders the dealing with such cases delicate, and frequently shuts the eyes even of intimate friends to the real insan ity of the patient. The worst, most common, and least manage ble form of the disease is the chronic. The victim here is tormented incessantly by an al most overwhelming impulse to swallow stimu lants. Comfort, decency, the prospects of life, and even the happiness of his family, are help lessly sacrificed, by the pitiable victim of chron ic oinomania. Too often the world censures, when it ought to commiserate such a person, for he generally derives no pleasure from his potations, and even bitterly laments the uncon trollable impulse of which he is the prey. An awful depression of spirits, forever tempting suicide, and sometimes leading to it, is to be ap peased only by inordinato stimulants, and then merely for a season; for soon the mental hor ror returns, and with it the diseased thirst ; again he drinks, again he finds a momentary Lethe, and again the hour of torture comes back, more terrible than ever. And so the miserable vic tim goes on, unless rescued by some friendly hand, until he becomes maniacal, or imbecile, or dies. Nor will any rescue avail, unless it is that of a physician. The pledge cannot save such men, for their disease is an insanity. Nothing but seclusion in a Hospital will ever work a permanent cure, and even this cannot always be effected. Such is the view taken of the subject by a writer who appears to have studied it pretty thoroughly. Ve do not wholly agree with him. That the confirmed drunkard is insane, we are not prepared to deny ; but we think his insani ity is not the cause but the result, of his drunk onness. We cannot believe that it is not in the power of any man to resist the inclination for strong drink at the outset. A contrary doctrine would exonerate every man who is classed un der the "acute," "chronic" or "recurrent" head, from all moral or legal responsibility for his actions. This would bo a dangerous doc trine. In the hereditary transmission of an ap- Iietite for liquor, we firmly believe, and it should jethe strongest of all arguments against even moderate drinking with every young man who expects to become a husband and father. ; . . NL Y. Star. Here's a definition of what constitutes a modern infidel, worthy of being carved on ev ery door-post in Christendom: Modern Lnfidel. The man who has no faith in the good and beautiful ; the scoffer at human virtue; the skeptic in human progress; the doubter of man s capacity for self government; above all, beyond all, the unbeliever in woman's goodness. Why was Jonah in the fishes' belly like a fashionable young lady? Because he had more whalebone about him than was good for him ! I A lady on a cold morning, seeing all the win dows and blinds of a wealthy bachelor's room thrown wide open, inquired the reason of it. ' "Oh," said he, "it's merely to let in my sun and arir." Renovating old' ArrLE Trees. Many peo ple think that it is useless when the limbs of an apple tree becomo rough, and decayed, by age, to adopt any mode of renovating tho tree or renewing the top of it, alleging that it is easier and more economical to raise a new tree. We feel no objection to the raising of new trees but don't be in a hurry to give up the old ones. By a judicious pruning and reserving and train ing the young sprouts, the top of a tree may be renovated and an entire new top formed in a few years, which may take the place of the old limbs ond being young, will bear well during the time of thriftiness. It is a rule of nature that the young and thrifty, both in the animal and veg etable kingdom, "should do the bearing, and not the old and decayed. Hence, as long as a tree has life enough to throw out sprouts and suck ers, so long it may be kept in a bearing state re newing its top. There is also another method adopted by some yet not practiced enough to en able us to judge of its practicability in all cases, and that is the stripping of the entire bark from an old tree sometime in June or the first of Ju ly. The Hon. Jesso Smart, of Troy, in this State, informs us that he has done it with good suc cess, in one or two instances. He recommend ed that in doinsr it caro should be used in not disturbingthe "siVtrr," or alburnum that inform ing. If that bo removed the tree will die. Ho had stripped an old tree of its bark, taking care not to disturb the "sliver." A frolicsome cat, in its gambols, took it into its head to run up the tree soon after it was thus stripped, and by striking her claws in, tore away this tender al burnum, wherever she stepped. The tree put on a green and healthy bark all over, except in the cat's track, and that still remains in a scarred state. Care should also be taken to shield this tender alburnum from to great a heat of the sun, lest it be scalded or scorched so as to kill it. A venerable neighbor of ours informs us that ho once stripped an old.npple tree, about the time that the bark would slip easily, for the purpose of obtaining baik for some particular purpose. The tree put on a new, healthy bark, became like a young, thrifty tree, and bore better after wards than it had for many years before. We givo these hints to those who may feci disposed to pructice the experiment carefully, with a view of establishing facts in this matter. The only way to obtain correct knowledge of Vegetable Physiology, is to study, observe, and experiment, and remember the results. Maine Farmer. Cause of blight in Wheat discovered. Messrs. A. II. and E. W. Stevens, of Harmony, called at the office of the Janesville Gazette with a sample of wheat affected with what has usual ly been termed the blight rot. They had been examining their wheat for some time, determin ed to search out the cause of its so sudden and general destruction. At length, on carefully re moving the husk from the berry, they discover ed a little white insect very busily at work eat ing off the joot of the kernel. These insects soon effect a separation of the stalk from the berry, and then the latter, deprived of its nour ishment, at once shrivels up and becomes worth less. In this way they proceed thro' the whole ear until each kernel is destroyed. It was tho't at first that only the early pieces of wheat would be affected with blight, but this little mischiev ous vermin attacks each field just as the berry is in the milk and destroys all alike. Here, then, is a ?iev tnemy to the wheat, and the farmers must study out some way to combat him suc cessfully. Ho seems thus far to prefer the hedgerow wheat. The Messrs. Stevens are of the opinion that it is the same species of insect that destroys the potatoe. They cultivate the blackberry in the neigh borhood of Boston. An old pasture is broken up, the sprouts are planted in rows in October, and kept clear of weeds and otherwise treated like raspberries. The Agriculturist says that the fruit thus produced is of a size and flavor which surprises those who are only acquainted with the wild blackberry. Our readers may not all be aware that the A merican species has a more agreeable flavor than the European. There are also different varie ties of the American fruit even in its wild state from which a selection might be made. To kill Squash Bugs. A correspondent sends the following : "Dip a feather in spirits of turpentine, knock the bugs on to the ground and give them a touch with it. It will kill them, I assure you. Be careful how you get it on to your plants, or it will kill them, too." Wo have found that crushing these striped destructives between the thumb and fore-figer is pretty suro death to them. Poison. Cyrus.of Persia,vhen a young prince visited his uncle Cyaxeres; and to show that there was no merit in being a good cup-bearer, took the cup from Sacas, who acted in that ca pacity. Astyages,history informs us, admired his skill but laughingly observed, the young waiter has forgotten one thing." " What have I forgotten ?" asked Cyrus. " To taste the wine before you handed it to mo and your mother." " I did" not forget that, but I did not choose to swallow poison." " Poison !" exclaimed the king. "Yes; there must be poison in the cup, for "they who drink it sometimes grow giddy and sick, and fall down." Then you never drink in your country 2" in quired Astyages. " Yes ; but we only drink to satisfy thirst, and then a little water suffices." This occurred nearly two thousand four hun dred years ago, yet it is as true as if it were an event of yesterday that intoxicating drink is a poison.

How to Treat a : Wife. First get a wife ; secondly, be patient. You may liavo great tri als and perplexities in your business with the world ; but do not therefore carry to your home a clouded or contracted brow. Your wife may have many trials, which though of less Magni tude, may have been as hard to bear. A kind, conciliating word, a tender look, will do wond ers in chasing from her brow all cjouds of gloom. You encounter your difficulties' in the open air, fanned by heavens cool breezes; but your wife is often shut in from those healthful influences and her health fails, and her spirits lose their elasticity. But oh ! bear with her ; she has tri alsad sorrow which your kindness can deprive of all their anguish. Notice kindly her Mttle attentions and efforts to promote your comfort. Do not take all as a matter of course, and pass them by, at the same time being very sure to observe any omission of what you may consid er duty to you. Do not treat her with indiffer ence, if you would not sear and palsy her heart, which watered by kindness, would, to the latest day of your existence, throb with sincere and constant affection. Sometimes yield your wish es to hers. She has preferences as strong as you, and it may bo just as trying to yield her choice as to you. Do you find it hard to yield sometimes? Think you it is not difficult for her to give up always? It you never yield to her wishes, thero is danger that she will think you are selfish, and care only for yourself; and 1 ....! 1? - t- - i 1 !. I Willi sucil ieeilligs sno cannot juvb us swu luiym.. Ajain, show yourself manlv, so that your wife can look up to you, and feel that you, will act nobly and that she can confidein your judgment.
