this admirable little book were drawn
the charAdiers of two persons, the one
ricA, but living beyond his mens, and
the ot.her poor, bt living within his

barrassed by his debts, atnt in want of
money; whilst the powor man never felt
this embarrasminent, but always had
plenty'of money to supply his wants.
The rich nian was so worried and fretted
by the importunities of his creditors
that he never lhad any to give in charity
or lend a friend in distress. But the
poor man always kept a little nmoney
on han1d, to liect these contingencies
aid emergeneies.

we meet in reality these imIaiginary

Baltimore, and then . return, as it

of the most important of thes4 fact is
the amount or extent of the Public

not yet appreciated by the publio. By
an examination of the books ol the

number of acres of public -land in each
State and Territory unsold and un.
disposed z~f, on the 80th of June, 1851,
was 1,500,632,305,48'-afcres.
This stupendous public domain,, at
*1 25 cents per acre, the lowest sum
for which the pubfic lands are sold is
worth upon this statement, *1,750,
79fi,380. No nation ever before had
any thing like such a prize at -its

properly, would go far to pay our

CAPTURE Oli s r c
Shaulk has adopted a good plan-th'kill
off'those pests of farmers- bedks.
He erects a pole about ten feet: high
(and'probably a higher one -w$tld an
swer a better purpose.) The' lower
end; mstead of being planted in the
ground, is fastened in the centre of
two .flat cross. timbers, and. braced,
stones being placed on the timibre to
keep the pole from blowing ovsr.'. On
the top of the pole is placed a contson
steel trap, the lower bar being Yfaiten
ed securely te the top of the pole-by a
staple. He sets the trap in sonmeplace
where hawks are likely to come, -and
leaves it. -The bird, seeing.a nico
perch on the top of a pole, selects it
for a point of observation, and st soon
as he alights, the trap springs and
catcehes his legs. The pole can retdiy
be pulled over, the bird taken oat; and
the trap set for another. In this'ian
