' Ferris Harvard was a Lieutenant In tho Navy; and depended c&tirei on hi pay s an OCcer, to aupport a wid owed mother and young-sister, to both of whom ha was dcvotedl) attached. His father was a self-made man, had once been a saccefal niorchant, who sailed and frelghtod some of the heavi LHt tonned vcsaeU that sailed from the Vrt of Boston; but misfortune and vtvncM pvirtook him, and he sunk into IfV-tre, leaving his only eon ta pro- iVil-Atlcr and kisler from the nta an.

He had boon a casual visitor for seve ral months suboquontly to tho time our story commences, at tho house ot the U family. 'I tiiut think of her no more," said Ferris to himself. If I am jeered at b3 her 'friends fir common civilities, with what contempt would her uu$terv parents receive a proportion for her hand front ono so )oor and unknown.' Ilsrris 11 was indent a stern old man. and yet ho wa said to bo kind to the xor, giving freely his bounty to tho needy. Still ho wustt utrango man. ho oeldom spoke to thou around him; vet ho evinced tho wurmt love for liif only child, and Anno love 1 her f.ilhtrr with an ardent utfection. His delight was to pore over hi library, living, as it were, in tho fellowship of tho old phil osophers. On several occasion when Ferris was at houne and engaged in con vernation with Anno, ho observed the old man's guxo bent sternly upon him and ho would wuko to the reality of his nituation. - Fern was ono evening in TJsacon Street, at tho houso of Mr. H where, In spitp of tho cold reception he received from thiMe he generally tnet there, ho sti'.i enjoyed himself in the belief that Anno was not indifferent to his regard. Hohad-ln relating to : her. witii ner reouest, ini'fjtperit'nv? he had met, speaking of their percnli arities and describing tho various ttcened of diffjrent countries.

Ferris, bending du to hor oar. naid Anno will pluck mo that roso ns a token of affection I You must know how ardent is mine for you or stop, dearest, behind it blows the condrnft. you know the mystic languago of both, will you choose and givo mo one?'' 'Hush huuh, Ferris," said the blushing and trembling girl, plucking and handing him the roso. This paisod when tho uttcntion of the company present wai drawn to some engaging object. JJever bcfjro had Ferri received nn cvidenco of Annus lovo, save from her tell-talo e3'et. The flower was placed next to his heart, and ho lelt tho apartment. t Ho had pro- Ceeded but k foW otept frotd' tho hou!o when he was accosted by a poot medi cant clothed In rags, who was exposed at that late hour of the night to the in c!omney of tho weather. . "Pray sir," said tho beggar to Ferris, 'can you givo mo a trifle f I urn near ly starved, and chilled through by tho night's uir.'- -" , Ferris after a few moment's conversa tion with the beggur lot ho had not a icarttoturn away Iron, tho sulionngs )f a fellow creature gave him a purse containing nvo or six dollars, urging im to seek tin mediate shelter and food fhe beirgar blessed him and pasned on A few nights itbsonnent to this oo a . t aa a cumneo ho wai agmi utneriaihers house.

Ferris wus -greatly stirpiised that Mr II hud taken no particular notice ol his inti .'.ucy ut his house, for ho stl- lorn saw btm, and when lie could, the Id man's eres wero bent sternly upon him in unytbing but u frientlly und in vitjng spirit. Jnthis dilemmu ho waa ut a loss what course to pursue, since Aniio's iicknowledgmont of her iitloc tlon f-r him, und now ho was vqrally distant from his g ul ol happiness, tor his bettor judnmeiit told him that the consent ot her pareuts could never bo obtained, On this occasion ho had taken his leave as usual, when ho was met by tho beirirar of tho former night, who agaiu solicited alms, declaring that no one else would iisr-iu him, .and that the money ho hud bestowed tti-on him bad been expended for food and rent of it minora. Ba a a a a a 1 S ble cellar whoro no had lodged.

Ho . loll the beggar and passed on his way, huppy in having contributed to tho alleviation ol human autterins. " Mot lung subnuent, Ferris callod ono evening at tho houso of Air.

The raising of cotton and manufactu ring it, have iu some degree diminished tho demand for linen, nevertheless linen goods will always bo in demand and tbe neceasity of raisin f Flax command our attention. The raising and manu facturing cotton fabrics in this country have - done much to alienate from jiurono a great element 'of trade, thr'o which we retain ao much cspltal that othewiso would Lave drained ao much specie from this country. Now, Mr. Editor if our farmers would rsise Flax to aumo extent, why in thenameof com mon sense could not linen factories bo established in our midst aud not depend on foreiirn aupplics7 ' Tho manafactu ring of linen goods in this country would save us an enormous earn, yearly In hard metal, for it is gold and ailvcr that must hp rnrlcd .for, .'thor, goods, Vict oaner money. Our exports will not al ways pay our Imports and when the balance of trade is asralost us, which is pretty often the case, then follows a drain and hard times, which wilfoccur when our pride and spoeulatlvo procliv. itiei run faster than ourselves.

There isoipe great mi.itako in some IMax growers, iu pulling their tlax bcloro tho stem, bo- gin to turn yellow; in pulling, tho host way is to gather tha, tops in one hand which tjrnt a lan-shapo, then pull the roots up with the other, und scparnti all woods that may bs found with them. When tho plants arc being pulled, lav them in even rows ou tho gronnd, if the weather h fine a few days will eufilce, then lurin fehoavcsandbe slacked, but if rain or heavy dews should prevai' the Flax ahould bo turned over to drv Oof jro taken into the b trn. In winter tho touds may be 'thrashed out. The longer Flax is kept is generally suppos ed the better. Summer is best fur steep- ng tho stems in water, which should bo dono for about ton days und then beat with a machine to separat o one part from tho other, then hacklo for use ormarkot. Tho water in which flax is rotted should bo thrown away, njvor ntlow the cattle to touch it, as tho poi son from the stem as del'torious. A little practico in raising flax will ena ble anv ono to raiso crops that will pav as well, if not better, than many o'her that require moro labour, tor flax and seeds will command renuinerativo ibi ces, more so as tho article increases, the manufacturing of linen goods must follow, and us already remarked, soon er or later it must become ono of our leading articles of commerce; at pres ent wo allow other contrios to derive a proat thai com i do ro.antvU in tuia. .a aa. a f .tf which would bjn.'tit a largj class oi people that are njw idle. 1IO ITH ILIlHALISr. i ' joua iei4 am tu attary Ana, A isew lor Ii torrespoit Jjiit ol lite D st on G.uo to writes: Y u roinember the story of John Dean an t his Mary Ann" 13 A-r poor girl her romance is converted into it misera ble real tv.

Tha Bjttom of the Atlantic. . It has now been satisfactorily aster. Mined, by Lieut.

From thodop of Chimboraro to the ottom of the o'V.n, at the deep est place reached by thepiammet in the northern Atlantic, "the distance in aver tical line is bino miles, The deepest part of the north Atlantic ia probably somewhere, between tho Bcrmusdas and the Grand Banks. Tho waters of tho Uulf of Mexico aro held in -a basin about a milo deep io tho deepest part.
