If not, pile into the big wag on, men, women, and little ones, with big basksts, little baskets and buckets, and go out and have a jolly lime. It is real fun to pluck those Urge and blushing beauties that grow in spontaneous profusion in al most every thicket, but it produces a more agreeable sensation to kiss their ruby cheeks. We have been pluming, and brought home a basket of as large and delicious lot of plums, as has been our good fortune to obtain. Tnr Caors. Corn and potatoes are Iqoking well, and if Jack Frost will de Jay his coming for two weeks longer, the farmers will reap the benefit of long and patient toil, as Jack will then be too late for mischief. Present indications are now fr.vorable for a late frost. ' Since the above was in type, a friend informs us, who has made extensive in quiry, that all the Corn grown on old ground is now out of the reach of frost, but the sod Corn is not yet matured. We apprehend no danger, however, from frost. The following notice was posted by the Cashier of the Fontenelle Bank, on the door of that institution, last Monday morning : NoTier.- In consequence of several recent failures in the east, where we have lame Interests, this Bank will be closed for the present. There will be no loss to depositors or to bill holders, b it for the present we are compelled to close. JOHN. J. TOWN, Cashier. Whereupon, some wag wrote under-1 main, the following verse: , , ., This Bank is good, though closed tight ; Have patience all, for all is rieflit I Mean time, your gold of faith deposit, In the Bank aboveyou ne'er will rue it . j Will the Nebraskian give us credit for any original matter 'hat ihcy may see fit to ropy from the Gazette, whether per sonal notices or otherwise ?

Our community were startled on Mon day morning, by the intelligence that tho Fontenelle Bank of this place had closed, but we are pleased to say they have paid since all their depositors in specia; and we opine if people will not run frantic and mad with excitement, all will be right.

A pen- tleman in New York has seut the editor of the Post a sample of very good brandy, made from the syrup of the new sugar plant, the Sorgho, or Chinese sugar-cane. He snys it costs about thirty cents per gal lon to produce, and is worth in the market from $1 to $2 per gallon, according to quality. In a note he says: The manufacture of spirit from the sorg ho may now be carried on by our farmers in the winter season, when there is no oth er occupation for them, at the rate of a eall on of proof spirit for each gallon of fermented syrup. This will find ready! sale at the rectifier s, who will turn it into alcohol for camphene and other purposes. The quantity of alcohol now used for the purposes of illumination alone, to say noth ing of varnishes, chloroform and medici nal extracts, is enormous, and was begin ning to have a serious effect on the price of bread, owing to the wholesale destruc tion of the cereals required to produce it. Now, however, we have found a substi tute, which, besides supplying syrup and alcohol, will also yield from the same crop a large amount of forag) and grain for the fattening of stock.
