When these are visible, the branch to which they belong is also topped down to their level; and this is done five times successively. By this means the -plants become stout dwarf bushes, not over eighteen inches high. Mn order to prevent them frpm falling oyer, sticks or strings are stretch ed horizontally alone the rows so as to keep the plants erect. In addition to this, all, the laterals that have no flowers, and, after the fifth topping, all laterals whatsoever are nipped off. In this way the ripe sap is directed into the fruit, which acquires a beauty, size and excel lence unattainable by other means. . jgyPresident Johnson on the 29th ro- nominated Henry Stansbery Attorney General of the United States. ta-TheChilicothe Advertiser has been enlarged to a forty column paper, r -.

I passed from lamenta tion to - an indignation meeting and from i ' an, ,- Indignation meeting' to deep grief. But w'ith retfecton' came consola tion., 1 came tOi the consoling thought that I was not the only, sufferer, and han ding out my surplus affliction to my be loved country at large, I found my share could be carried without much inconve nience, v..-, -i'- - .? The immediate cadse of its' death was dyspepsia, - aggravated by whisky. But the seeds of weakness and disease were planted in its birth.- We began a party of reform; of agitation of aggression.and we. took into otir embraces the eld Whig party, that Was a party , of conservatism; aggravated by great dignity and timidity. The result has been internal dissensions; The ultra reform party could not digest the conservative lump, and we have heed afflicted with colic, so to speak, that well nigh destroyed our usefulness. Our ac tions Jn consequence. have been contra dictory. While at one time we create a John Brown, and glory in John Brown as our greatest and best beloved; organ ized huge armies; fought out big wars, and liberated a race: on the other hand we have been busy' smoothing out war's wrinkled front with the decayed plasters of wf ong-doihg.i It lis' called compro mise which means to give the devil, your soul in a dignified, peaceful manner. The last internal convulsion exhibited with great clearness the different elements. On one side we had Butler, Bteveas;Bing ham, Logan, Sumner and Drake; on the other stood, . in calm , repose, Fessenden and Trumbull; while between floated an-, other element, born of the revolutionary times, that had its marketable value, and fluctuated as either "party bid.

Nor do I blame them for responding as they did to the solemn question ! asked, them, by the Chief Justice. , I believe this as 1 believe that the thirty-fiye voting "guilty" were honorable, honest men ' But, in political life, a blunder is worse than a crime, and Messrs. Fessenden and Trumbull blun dered in belonging to the Republican or ganization at all. They should have gone over to the- party of Stanbery , and Groes beck; where the old Whig dignity is pre served intact; and where Conservatism is so intense that an ancient wrong is pre : ferred to a new right, and where, official position is so glorified that a halo is thrown around an inebriated mule, that an all-wise Providence, through some in scrutable reason, has set on end and made bur, President, f;7"?-i 7-?
