BT ITICtl Tom Buckram waa a tailora lad, And one of Nature' treasures, A moral youth who squared hia life By Virtue' rulea and measures. Each Sabbath mnm he went to church, Attentive he waa rated But then, of lata, hi eye had got To be quite eyes-o-ltUcd.' 'Twas Sally Wynn that can so J thia thing, The Squire' only daughter, Whose swimming eye, of liquid blue, Had made Tom' mouth to water. Now Tom a nimble workman waa, And well he drew hi stitchc; But bvp, alas, in his poor heart Had now made aerer.il breaches. And, aa he sat upon his board, He was so sore Hi mind, . His woik, which went on last before, Now went aa fust behind. His muster, having tried in vain The cause of this to scan, baid, as Tom a peck of trouble had, He should be Bushel-mats. But this promotion proved te be No measure of relief; Instead of soothing bis disease, It but enlarged bis grief. In short, by S illy's aid alone, Could Buckram's cure be dune, l)ut Sally Wynn, the cruel girl. Would not be Sally won. For when he asked f r S idy Wynn, Poor Tom she roundly rated, S.i he got bilious, then got sick, Thin got sallivatcd. The doctor ahook hit he.iil and said I fear it i no use His thread at life is drawing nut, I think Tom' 'a gone goose." Arid ure enough the uuih it proved, Thit veiy nigljt Tom died And when they opened him they found A ttith waa in liia aide. Now all ye tailor Lids be sure, In love and buincs both.

The news of the taking of St. Jean d'Acrc has caused a ercat sensation here. The allied troops found immense quantities of ammunition and nrovisions in the fortress. It is surprising that the Egyptian troops, who might have cm ployed the night of the third in saving the public treasure neglected to do so. There was at Acre a sum of two mil lions (query, piastres or Uorins?) which belonged to the Egyptian Government. The news of the taking of Damascus has come bv way of Athens ; but many persons doubt it, though it is said to come from good authority. The following graphic and spirited sketch of the attack upon St. Jean d' Acre is given by the Davenport Ha- Kite from the letter of an officer of her Majesty's steam frigate Gorgon : On the last day of September we were despatched from Beyrout, with three steamers under our command, to bombard this devoted place for three days before the general attack was made, which we commenced on the first of October, by standing in within range, and firing shells as fast as we could pelt, and they returning two for one. They fell around us like hail, but strange to say, not a shot struck us; our bombardment was not very suc cessful, as more than half the shells burst before they reached the shore, owing to the fuses being badly bored ; all the shells from the steamers failed , alike, a circumstance not very credita ble to those who made them, and sadly disappointing to us. It is not likely they were ever tried at such a ditrfanoe before, 4000 yards. At half past four o'clock, (how shall I describe this,) as if by one consent, all firing ceased, and oh," Heavens ! what a sight ! The whole town appeared as if it was in the air; so awfully grand a sight no one can describe. We saw no thing but one devilish cloud extending thousands of yards into the air and on all sides, and then we felt an awful shock which gave the line of battle liP a heelof two degrcs, o that you .-JUUSr ,ru.,n "ie nomcm 01 me ex plosion, all firing from the town ceased 1 he 1 urkish admiral alkcr Bey was boarded at one o clock in the morning by an Igyptian colonel, who informed I . 1 . um ''at they were evacuating the town as fast as possible.

Wo know there appears something aitogctner conirary to the common laws of propagation, in the supposition that one plant may, under any circum stances, give birth to another of an en tirely different species. We have never said they covld; but in view of certain facts that have been credibly stated, we have raised the question for considera tion. This is the extent of our uvouch ment of the facts stated by Mr. Smiley, in relation to the transmutation of gilli flower tubers into potatoes. The facts, too, stated by Dr. Parker of Billerica, in relation to the product of tiger lilies from an aquatic plant, and of yellow lillies from the peony, we have present ed for solution. 1 hat wheat in wes tern New York has oftentimes turned into chess, is a fact which manv intelli gent men in that region have testified to. N e have once mentioned the al leged fact, that barley has been known to produce oafs. Mr. Brcck, in accor dance with his usual self-complacency, ridicules the statement, and says we must have a difiercnt soil in Maine from that in any other part of the world. This may, ox may not be true. But a few weeks ago we were in Mt. Vernon, and on inquiry of a respectable gentle man of that tow n, relative to tho crops there, he remarked to us that somehow or other, he did not know why, the far mers in that town could not raise bar lev with success. " We sow barlcv," said he, "and it comes up oats." lie gave us several facts in verification of his remark. We could not deny or ac count for such a singularity. Since that time one of the most respectable physicians in this state, who is himself a skilful cultivator of the soil, has stated to us a fact within his own knowledge and of which be avers he cannot be mistaken. Some years ago whilst at tending medical lecture at Dartmouth College, in Hanover, N. II., he resided in Haverhill in that state. He had oc casion to sow a patch of barley. It came up, developed the barley leaf, stalk and heads. Whilst the heads were in their infancy, some breach cat tle broke into the plat, and in various places cat down the barley stalks, heads and all. That which was not thus in jured ricned bailey ; but in every case the stalks that had been cropped sent up new stalks in due time, and these stalks, proceeding from the same roots, yield edaoats ! He says he knows this to be a fact, for it was one within his own personal knowledge, and engaged many of his own and other people's spec ulations at the time. So that Mr. Breck need not presume that the soil of Maine is altogether peculiar. He will rind Mime such no farther off than Haver hill, New Hampshire. Maine Cultivator. Cooking Bkkts. Take beets of mid dle size, and after removing the tops and dirt, roast them in a fire as potatoes are roasted. When done, they are peeled and served up in the usual man ner. One who has tried them cooked in this way, says they are much sweet er and richer than when boiled ; as by roasting none of the saccharine matter is lost. It is a singular fact, that roast ed potatoes are one of the most efficient remedies or preventatives of the scur vy, a property wholly lost wlen boil ed. OvstKn Cork Cakks.

Gi-nrral Gainea thinks that these bat'eries are rendered nrerssary by the recent inventions in the art of war, and had Denmaik posacsaed them, she would nut have suflVr. d al Copenhagen, The memorial pr, cceda to point out the numerous advantages to be derived in various way a from then b.itteries, in both war and peace. Secondly The mi inorial proposes the immediate ronstiuction of erven railroads, each from 600 to 700 nibs in length, costing about f 65 000 000, which in a state of war will enable the goverment to transport troops with great facility. The pi in of operationa for the constucton of these works is then hid down, and the adtantagea to result from the operation are set forth. The memoiial proceeds to discuss various sub jects connected will' the great propositions, and to point out their applicability, their constitutionality, and tht'ii prsclirahility. The plan also includes rchei.ie of emir.ripnli i, which in the next country mny be promoted by about two hundred millions of white inhabitants, which out nation will possess, who can supply an army of protection and instiuction for the blaik', first here anil then in Africa.

Accordingly, n. aliing is more common than for pcopte, who have the curb siiy to read something that happena to be particularly interesting, or who wi.-h to send a pa per to a fiiend as a token of remembrance, to rua) into a printing office, and ask for, or take, a paper just out from the press and if the printer ahould think of taxing hiin anything for it, the customer would think hiiuke'f quite, in.ulleJ by the uiggardfti lies of the stingy priivei !

And yet people will enter a printing office and toko six cub worth of a pi inter labor, and really think it one of that soil of things Which should be given away becau-e the paper is printed.
