A minister who had considerable of a farm, as was generally ,r;ie in our forefathers' days, went jut to see one of his laborers, who was ploughing in the field, and he found him fitting on hi? plough, resting his team. 'John,' said he, 'would it not be a good plan for you to have a stub scythe here, and be cutting a few bushes while the oxen are resting?

Luke Wyman, Jr., of West Cambridge, Mass., is celebrated for his Flum Or chards, from which he has wholly extir pated the warts or knotty excresences that so often disfigure this tree. He breaks the ground up about the trees in the füll; in the spring following about two pail-fulls of drainage of the cess pool, with half a bushel of good new loam, must be spread about the roots, ad ding also three pints of common salt. None of this composition must touch the bark or roots of the tree, but spread about the tree in a circle of two or three feet in diameter. At the first flow of the sap in thespiing, pare the knotty excresences smoothly down to the natu ral dimensions of the limb. Salt is a great fertilizer of Plum trees, and may he applied to advantage, in small quali ties, at almost any time. PROFITS OF POULTRY RAISING. Col. Minot Thayer, at the late Poultry Convention, hold in JJoston, stated that he had been engaged in Poultry raising for 15 years. His farm consisted of 200 acres, and was acknowledged to be a good one, yet with an outlay of $'25, in connection with his fowl department, he derived more profit than from all the rest of his farm. It was his opin ion that good policy required the keep ing of but few fowls; he usually hai not more than 10.0; with two acres of land and a running brook, that number would be very productive. His practice was to have two or three- houses in which to shelter them in winter; these houses were made of stone on three sides. It was necessary, he said, to give the hens meat or fish in the winter when they would lay eggs as freely as in summer.' Mr. Giles, of Providence, said that 200 or 300 fowls might be kept on two or three acres of land. Their houses should be cleaned as often as once a week, and a little slackened lime strewed in them. Mr. Giles was of the opinion that the Dorking and white Shanghae are the the most profitable fowls. Leaves as ITIaiuire. Leaves, buds, and lender branches are peculiarly rich i: the vegetable alkali; I besi les which they contain other organic elements, derived from the soil, enrich ing its surface, tending to prevent its exhaustion, or when newly applied that is to other ground to enrich it more than superficially. Leaves and the remark is applicable to the tender branches also seem desti ned by nature for the manure of the for est land and indeed of ground generally wherever trees grow. The roots collec the in-organic elements essential to veg etation, from the soil, penetrating deep ly and widely; the leaves detain and store up a certai-i portion of them with other elements derived from the atmos phere, such as are required for their growth; and these returned to the soil with the fall of the leaf, and there un dergoing decomposition, are. ready to be appropriated again, and re-administered to the process of vegetable' growth.

A correspondent, at Swe den, (Me.,) writes to inquire the cause of rot in potatoes as for a remedy he has tried a gill of salt and a little plas ter, on each hill. Iiis potatoes have not rotted, while all the fields around him were very badly affected. He is not a ware thatProvidence has interfered to fa vor him, as he is uncertain whether his success is owing to salt, to plaster, to both united, to a new soil, to a want of bam manure, or to a mixture of various kinds of potatoes on planting. Mass Plovghv.an. Youth is a glorious invention. While the girls chase the hours, and the boys chase the girls, the mouths seem to dance away with them upon their feet. What a pity our summer is so jhort! Before you know it, gay young lovers become dea cons, and romping girls grandmothers.

A eentleman of considerable talent as j A 0 . ....... r an OTator become a member of the legis lative body, in one the Eastern States. In speaking he was addicted to an old habit of handling his spectacles; first placing them on his nose, suffering tin in to remain a minute or two, throwing the'm upon his forehead, and finally fold ing them up and laying them before him on the desk. One nay a very important question came up for consideration, and he commenced a speech in opposition. A friend to the proposed measure, wi.o was a most mcorragible wag withal, de termined to spoil the effect cf the honor able member's remarks, and accordingly, before he entered the house, provided himself with a dozen pair of spectacle?; the member commenced his speech with his usual ability. But a few minutes had elapsed before he was at work with his spectacles and finally got them upon his forehead. At this juncture our wag. who stood ready, laid another pair upon the desk before the speaker. These were taken up, and by gradual gradations, gained a place upon his forehead, by the side of other, A third, fourth and fifth pair were disposed of the same manner. A smile settled upon the countenances of the honorable members, which gradually enlightened into a grin, and at last, when the speaker had warmed into o:e ofh's most patriotic sentences, he deposited a sixth pair with the others, and there was one long and loud peal of laughter from all quarters of the hall presidents, clerks and members joining in the chorus. The speaker looked around him in astonish ment at this curious interruption; b it raising his hand, he grasped the specta cles and the whole force of the joke rush ed upon his mind. He dashed the glas ses upon the floor, took his hat and left the hall. The bill passed by a triumph ant majority, probably in consequence of the gentleman's silly and useless hub it. Abuse of the Fränking Privilege. Some, twelve or thirteen bags of mail matter, weighing upwards of thirteen hundred pounds, all going to Mr. Senator Borland, of Arkansas, under his own frank, went from our own City Post Of- ice to the mail-boat going south this morning. inc postage on mis single iui of books, &c, which this honorable Sen ator Iihs franked to himself, would a- mount to two or three, hundred dollars, so the people can see the manner in which Uncle Sam is made to bleed by those who are the foremost in crjing out against the irregularity of the mails. Such abu ses as these ought to stimulate the peo ple to demand that the franking privilege; be taken away altogether. Louisville Courier. Curious Decision. The lawyers in New York must write a miserable scrawl, judging from the following laconic decis ion made by Judge Edmonds, on Satur day week: Bloodgood vs. Trow. being unable, to find out from the papers, what the parties want, or what they are after, the motion, whatever it is, must be denied. Myers & Co., vs. lluntly. A motion to change place of trial denied, mainly because the ntoving papers are so illegi ble that ther cannot be read. YOUNG LADIES ! Never marry a man who treats his mother or sister unkindly or indillcrent- ly;such treatment is a sure indication of a mean and wicked heart. A young man guilty of such meanness will never make a good husband. When you see a young man who is affectionate to his aged mother and sisters, attentive to all their wants with filial love and tender ness, virtuous and lovely in his deport ment, fear not; his worth is above rubies. Why is a tailor called the nith part of a man? Uccause 'money makes the man,' and tailors never get more than a ninth part of what is due them. True politeness is perfect easa and freedom. It simply consists in treating others as you wonld lore to be treated TOuKelf. j I - - - - - ------ - la - JUDICIAL OrriCEItS marshal! E. M. CHAMBERLAIN, President Judge. DAVID STEELE, ) , . . , .
