SaarnalICourier, of he 17th inst
sayst A case was tried, during the re
cent sessin of the U. S. Circuit Court
in tfins ity, which ought to be general
I' Unorst6od, both by the people and
th officials who have charge of the
v,arious Post Offices -throughout the
country;. The Postmaster at Sylva
nia, in Seiiven county was arraigned
and 'fined fifty dollars, for delaying
letters In his office.
The law makes it the imperative
duty of every Postmaster to forward
all nil' m'atter deposited one half hour
beforede departure of the mail, un.
a lon ei timo should be granted
by the ostmaster Geieri, on ae
eeunt orthe business of the office.
ThMor are also sovere penalties for
delaying letters, papers, &c., after
they have been mailed and on their
way to iheir places of destination.
So stringent are the laws, that a rigid
and prompt discharge of their official
duties only can save the Postmasters
from their penalties.
The above is the first instance of a
conviction that we have heard of, and
we publish it for public information,
hoping that it may lead to increased
carefulness on the part of all who have
anything to do with the Mail service.
Al few more convictions of the kind,
we have no doubt, will awaken the
parties interested to a sense of their
obligations, and do something to rem
edy'the present irregularities of the
..Educated Wheat.-A singular dis
covery has been made in France, by a
'M,-Fabre, a humble gardener of Ayde,
but of some local note as a botanist.
The herb wgifope, .keretofore consider
ed as worse than useless, grows abun
dantly on the shores of the Mediterra
nean. It proceces a species of grain
resembling wheat in form, but much
smaller. In the year 1839, I. Fa
bre, sowed a quantity of this grain,
and he was struck by observing that
-the produce of it seemed to bear a
close affinity to wheat, That produce
he sowed the next year, and the vield
was still more like wheat. He went
on sowing the yield in this way year,
after year, and each year found a
marked improvement in the produce,
tntil at last he had the satisfaction of
getting as fine a crop of wheat, and of
as good quality as could wish to be
seen. At first ie produced his crops
in a garden, but his latter sowings
were made broadest in an open field.
Thus,-then, a wild and mischievous
herb, which is particularly destructive
to barley crops, can be educated into
,excellent wheat.-Literary Gazette.
