It was no curse that said to Man, "labor thy lot shall be ; And with the sweat upon thy brow Thy hand shall nourish thee." All who obey this high behest Blessinga in it have found : Amd health and wealth are gathered best By those who till the ground: The human frame is scarcely made Til toil devektep I m ; And health which is not won by work Will hardly bide ihe storm. Or head or brain, with plow or pen, May do God's will below; Sot sloth will wither hai,d arid briu And quench the spirst's glow. Say not, thou lodily son of gold, No need Ltr thee to toil; Say not tLere's nought to do, except By sertf wed to the soil. Are there not widowed hearts to cheer, That pine in cold neglect; And innocence to guide aid guard, -And orplhans to protect ! Are there not godlike intetiects Now crushed in tiv'ish tear, Thy hand, thy voice, thy pen could raise To state ot angels here i Ate there not shackied limbs to free Wild passions to reciain- Wild deserts and their wi:.er tmen Than wildest beasts to tame ? A jarring and discordant world To harmnonie and brhi Tugether lirm with iron bands, 'Till all be of oie mind !

(Laughter and cheers) I %Why, there are the hunkers-they're extreme l ly happy. (Roars of Laughter.) They console ' themselveºs with the reflection that they have put Mr. ý'an Bureo intu "the nine holes," where I he can't get out "l,y honors," and must rely I solely on "old trick."

Tma N.awspmart Passs.-The history o the increase of periodical literature in'the Uni. ted Stases is surprieing, and altogether without parallel in any cogatry.

A HArry IsLAND.-Describing a visit he paid last spring to Petcairn's Island, Captain Worth, of the British ship Calypso, says: I never was so gratified by such a visit, and would rather have gone there than to any part ,af the world. They are the most interesting, contented, moral and happy peodle that can be conceired. Their delight at our arrival was beyond an) thing. The comfor!, peace, strict morality, industry and excessive cleanliness and neatness that were apparent about every thing around them, was really such as I was not pre. pared to witness. Their learning and attain. ment in general education and information, were really astonishing. All dressed in Eng. lish style. The men, a fine race, and the wo. men and children very pretty, and their manners really of superior order, and smiling and joyous. Crime appears to be unknown, and if there is really true happiness on earth, it is surely theirs.

Cows.-As these con-! tains a very ~tible portion ol nutritive mallte besides o:tier si,istagnces of value, you should i grind theio into c,, rieal f.)r your mllch cows. i'To increa.-e their value, add to every peck ol cobs a y|:art of meai, or ball'gallon ul I,ran to.1 each meas or a cow, which should be either boiled or steamed into slop for your cowsr The proportions we herein name, with the addition-!l of cut bay or straw, ray a half hbushel at'l each meal, will mot aily keep a cow in good : condition, but if she be in milk will increase its qulutiti. A cow, besides these slop messes, should be night and morning served with long. food, as bay, todder, or straw in suitable quanti. ties, say ten lbs. at each meal. If such course of treatment were to be obverved towards these generous creatures there would be less falling off in their mi:king properties through the win. ter. As to tIult in short milking we have new. er laid it to the cow, but to the neglect of her }owner, for we have ever laid it down as a sell: )evident proposition, that he who expects a cow. to give any considerable quantity of milk in wi&. tar, must provde her generously with suceulet ll :ood, as no cow can secrete milk unless she re ceive such material as will enable her to form the.deliciuus fluid whica so delights the humam a1b and contributes so largely towards human lustesace.-- [ American Farmer.

In 1839, it was ascertained that about 1, 500,000 persons were engaged in the manuftc ture and cultivation of tobacco in the United States, 1,000,000 of whom were in the States of Virginia, Maryland, Kentucky, and Missouri. i The whole crop for 1845, was put down at 187 422.000 lbs. t he crop of 1847 is estima. at 200, 164,000, worth, at 5 cents per lb, I11,., 000,000.
