Messrs. Editors -.That the great im
portance and value of the hay crop of our
country is knownHrf every intelligent far
mer and stock feeder is ;true; - IJoubt-
ful. EdsIJ F"But that! farmers' generally
are not fully aware of , the vast superiority
of. bright, sweet hay over the yellow, mus-
tv stulT which too frequently fills their
mows) is notoriously true. ''. That's fact.
Eds.! ,. Indeed, the mode of, making hay
that has . generally been recommended by
writers on this 'subject,; is calculated, in
my humble opinion,to lead to an errone
ous tractice Many in conseauence of
their love of iiovelty, or ;in their great
hurry to arrive at perfection, have discard
ed in' a measure the good old rule of mat
ing hay while the sun" shines, and recom-
mend a system 'of cutting the 'grass so
green and putting it up with so little cur
ing, that it must result in partially, at
least destroying the value of . the, hay.
That good hay cannot be made by cutting
the errass as trreen as it really should be
and putting it np the same day, is Ire
quentiy set forth as a conclusion deducted
from " Observation, and experience. Hay
that is stored away before it is properly
cured,' will invariably heat toTsuch a"de
gree.r as will destroy its value, in a' great
measure. Any person , that both makes
and feeds - the same; hay. with his , own
hands, will soon1 notice the difference be
tween, that . which has been" sufficiently
Cured,, and that which has'notvf He, will
occasionally find .some' that has turned to
a yellow . 0lor, ,- and has a strong jnusty
scent, and by casting his mindback.to the
time it' was made, he will invariably recol
lect that it was put up greener and heavier
than the. rest?' ?
7 To have ,they best quality 'of hay, the
grass should certainly be cut-sooncr than
is customary with most farmers'. ; lCut be
fore the seed ripens,; in all cases, else the
stalk becomes hardened,! and loses much
of its nutricient quality 5 When the grass
is in fuU bloom,"is probably the best time
to cut, as it' is done growing, and if left
standing longer the stalk becomes woody
and the - blades die and rdry up, which
diminish" their lvalue very much; and if
cut sooner, the hay is lessened in quantity
and probably" in quality.",. Therefore my
advice' is lo'cdt your grass while in full
bloom, core-it thoroughly,-put it np neat
ly, and Btore-it away plentiiuiiy, in pro-
portion W tutj blUU& j uu ui.v;uv w

v The Boy and Mail. j :
X. few years ago there was in. the city
of Boston a portrait painter whose name
was Copley. He did not succeed very
well in his business, and concluded to go
to England to try his fortune there. He
had a little son. whom he took with him.
whose name was John Singleton Copley.
John was a very studious boy, and made
such rapid progress in his studies that his
father sent him to college. - There he ap
plied himself so closely to his books," and
became so distinguished a scholar, that his
instructors predicted that he would make
a very eminent man. .
fter he graduated he studied law; and
when he entered upon the practice of his
profession, his mind was richly stored with
information, and so highly disciplined by
his previous diligence, that he almost im
mediately obtained celebrity. One or two
cases of very great importance being en
trusted to him, he managed them with so
mnch wisdom and skill as to attract the
admiration of the whole British nation.!'
The King and his Cabinet, seeing what
a learned man he was, ' and the influence
he had acquired, felt it important to se
cure' his services for the government.
They therefore raised him from one post
of honor to another, till he was creuted
Lord High Chancellor of England," the
very highest post of honor to which a sub
ject can attain, so that John Singleton
Copley, is now Lord Lyndhurst, Lord
High Chancellor of England. About six
ty years ago he was a poor little boy in
Boston, his father a poor portrait painter,
hardly able to eet his daily bread. Now
he is at the head of the nobility in Eng
land, one of the most distinguished men
in talent and power in the House of Lords,
and regarded with reverence and respect
by the whole civilized world. Tnis is tne
reward of industry; the studious boy be
comes the useful and respected man.
Had John S. Copley spent his school
days in idleness, he would probably have
passed his manhood in poverty and shame.
But he studied in school when other boys j
were idle; he studied in college when other
young men wasted their time. . He ever
adopted this motto, " Ultra pergere," '(press
onward,)and how rich has been his reward.
You, my young friends, are now laying
the . foundation of your future life. You
are every day at school deciding the ques
tion whether you will be useful or respect
ed in life or whether your manhood shall
be passed in mourning over the follies of
mis-spent boyhood. ' ' ' - ; ; :
- Misdirected Industry.
The London correspondent pf the Na
tional Intelligencer says: ; . v
One of the best things produced during
the wees: is a lecture by Lord , Ashburton,
on "Common Things," which he has issued
to the schoolmasters and schoolmistresses
of Hants and Wilts. '; We" give a short
extract npon misdirected intelligence, which
we think is particularly good. ' 1 His Lord
ship says : . ' . : ' .'-
If 4 had space, I would attempt to
show- you that it is not in the Crimea
onlv, but that in' bur fields, in our towns,
at our very: thresholds, are to be found the
same fatal results of misdirected intelli
gence. ' 'I would ; take ' you on that sea

Birbeck, their founder, and wasting noble
aspirations after knowledge by dilettanti
lectures upon useless frivolities.; . , All this
misdirected industry in manhood is the
fruit of the ; misdirected bias imparted in
childhood." 1' Yon are answerable for that
bias;! may i your, eEForts be successful.? V

following playful manner the defeats of its
