to prepare and snnd forth a Circular, iuvitirg
tho several Bible Societies i:i the State to
unite with them by their delegates, in a Couven.
1 tion, to be held atColu.nbiu, on Tuesday the 5th

The objects to be secured by each a Conven)
tion. are to ascertain what hns been done in this
j State for the last four or five years in giving
* circulation to the Bible; whit facte may ho co'!
locted, which will throw light upon our yet re

that which was agreed upon in Columbia, several

j ouglily, and jcdiciouelv carried into etfect, so
I that our entire reading population, have free accosfi
to copies of the Holy Scriptures in their
own possession. And finally to deliberate upon
any other subject connected with tho ditfueion
of the Bible, whether at homo or abroad, in
Christian or in heathen lands.
The general fact is known, that districts of
country, which have been thoroughly supplied
one year have contained many destitute families
he next; and what is true of one district is true
o^* all the rest, as tho same caueos operate to ereate
tho want, viz: the formation of new families,
he immigration of others, and the wearing out 01
ho Bibles themselves In most cases whore a
te-supply hasjbctn uadcrtakcn, after an interval
I of four or fifp year.', the destitution has been
found full hflf as great as at the period of tho
original supply, and in some cases greater, fiom
tho causes already assigned. We allude to this
fact because h was one of the principal motives

To hud trees, lot the following method be
adopted: procure a knife which line n thin
blade, and a sharp ivory handle; the use ol
the blade is to prepare the buds, and the
handle is used to raise the bark of the stocks
so that the buds can be easily inserted ?
[lave some good 6trong bass in readiness
and then take some good thrifty sprigs frorr
healthy trees of the 6orts you intend to pro.
pagate. When ali is ready, make a cut in
the hark of the stock transversely, and from
the middle of this cut make another downwards,
at leust two incites in length, so tljal
the two en's may bo in the form of a T; titer
take one of your sprig?, and witlt expedition
proceed to take off a bud: this is effected bv
entering knife a little more than half ar
inch below the fc'jdoreyc; force your knife
into tho v.ood, drawing under the bud, auc
cut the piece or? across tho <4100*; and titer
immediately let that part of the wood wh:ci
was cut off with the hud, be separated frorr
it which mav be readily done with the knife
; by placing the point of it between the bark
and wood at one end, and holding the bark
in one baud,pull off the woody part with the
other, which will readily come from the
bark, if the tree from which it was taken b(
, in a vigorous condition. Examine the oarii
so as to bo satisfied that the bud remain.'
perfect; if there is no hole in it. let i: be im
mediately inserted into the stock, observing
for reception of it, to raise tvith the handle
i of your knife the bark of the stock, down
| wards on each side from the cross cur, ?ni
p thrust the bud in between the bark and tto
wood, applying it as close as possible. A:
soon as the bud is put ir. its place, tic it rount
securely with the buss, beginning a little be
t low the cut,and proceeding upwards tillyoi
are above the cross cut, taking care to rnisj
the eye of the bud, just that ii may be seer
through the bandage of the bass. About ?
week or ten days after the stocks have beer
budded, they should be examined, wher
such as have united will appear fresh ar.c
full, and those that have not taken will r.p
! pear decayed; in the former case the bandage
may be left ofF, and in the latter case
the stock may be budJed in another r>'f;lCC
provided the first operation w;t;J done in th<
month of July or e;/,!yin August, as thest
arc the *t? o most preferable months for bud
ding fruit trees in general. Budding is
however, often attended with success i
done in September.
Scallope Budding is performed by cut
ting from a small stock, a thin narrow sea'
lope of wood, about an inch in length, ant
taking from a twig a thin scallopc of wood
. of the same length; this is instan ly applied
and fitted perfectly at top and bo'tom, anc
as nearly as possible on its sides, and firm
ly bound with wet bass matting. This modi
may bo practiced in the spring, and if it fails
it may he done again in the month of July
The French practice this mode on roses.?

, Mr. Editor:
1 In your March number, at page 316 yot
I have made some remarks on an arielo ol
mine on ti:c subject which is at the head <.i
this communication, calcula cd to inspire
doubts as to the truth of triy statements, a![
thougli you vouch for the respectability o!
. niv character. Your correspondent *G.!
in tli'.1 sum- na:r Vr, ;d- seems to <pu-s ion
1 heir accuracy, and not only those of mine, j
but also those of previous correspondents >
on the same interesting subject. A desire t
, is also expressed, both bv yourself and him, c
that pains should be taken to obtain the sc. t
cret by which Mount was enabled to con- fl
" quer.in so short a time,that most vicious nni- c
mal. Since the receipt of ihat number of t
the magazine, I have been to Kaskaskin, t
my former residence, and made more par- t
ticular enquiries into the caso reported to c
you, and of which I was an eye-witness, i
and have held conversations with those who li
are in possession of the secret. They all d
concur in my account of it, and further assure
me that they are in the constant habit I
of using the means with ivh'ch Mount ope- c
rated, and have never faild of success, no f
matter how devlish the horses were. I am c
1 also in possesion vf the secret, and can teach h
any man acquainted with horses to subdue & s
render tractable the most ungovernable nni. c
: male in one or two hours. Abou.1 thi3 there is ti
no mistake. I>y the same means, the most c
baulky horse can be made to pull as true as
the best dray horse in your ci;y, and oxen
, can he broke to the yoke, and to pull wi:h,
out flinching, in an liour or more. "
Some furthtr facts in relation to 'the v'
roan* on which Mount operated at Kaskas- *t
kiu were given to me, in sub tance thus: c
, that the next day, in taking him from the
wagon, the driver went behind his legs un- ^
hitched the traces, gave him a kick, and he c
trotted ofTIike an ol i stage horse; and fur- r
ther, when he left the town 'roan* was turn. t;
ed loose and trotted after the wagon, never
offering to run awnv, and this, a horse rais- c
in the woods, and but a fe.v hours under the 1
. dominion of man! All this, I admit, is a c
! severe draft upon creduliy, but it is as true '
i ns thai controul has been givmtous over c
! the whole brute creation. c
I have ascertained to inv perfect saiis- ^
faction, that the means used have no inju- 1
nous effects whatever oil the spirits of the
horse; upon his disposition they act like a
charm, and seem to attach him to the person
who administers them.
A gentleman who has practised the art [
i assured me that lie caught, for his little sis- t
ter, a wild Point horse, and in one week had t
so completely gentled him that she rode him s>
every where with the most perfect safety. I
i Tint the means used,properly administered, f
will produce the effects spoken of, there is t
no more doubt than that you have an cxis- |

TSic subject of the above article from t

tinuc to e'eubt, though they are affirmed to I
by persons ever so respectable. The facts 1
asserted by 'Sigma* end various other res- F
npctnble gentlemen, are neither more nor s
less than what aro almost universally believed
to be impossibilities. If we were to <

sition and habits as to tender bin?docile and i

j It is mentioned by JSir Humphrey Davy,
upon the authority ofan article in the Philosophical
transactions for 1790, that in the
j years 1795 and 1790,, when almost the
whole crop of corn, (wheat J in the British
> island, was blighted, the varieties obtained
by crossing alone escaped, though sown in
' several soils, and in very different situa'
The manner of crossing is very simple,
merely bv sowing different kinds of wheat, '
in the same field, the product of which will 1
i be a new variety. The fact rs detailed
above seemed to us to be important to be 1
known, wc have therefore abstracted it wi ll (
a view oflaying it belore our readers, and 1
would suggest,that if the production of a new '
: variety,by this simple process ofcrosing, has c

might be tried on a small scale first, nnd if *

Southern gentlemen as a very useful mahine
for cui'iva i.jg & thinning coUon.
The machine (which is left ut Mr. J. F.
Lallan's drug store for the inspection of iho

ground after i! has boon passed over by tho

has been examined by several practi.

it a very valuable invention.
\'al. Intel I,
From tiie Foreign Missionary Chronicle.
It has long been known that tiie most
icrnicious consequences have resulted from
he worship of this heathen demon. To
he black goddess with a collar of golden
;ku!ls, as she is enhibi ed in ail her principal
emples, human sacrifices were anciently
)fTered, as the Vcdas enjoined. We arc
here told tliat the blood of a man produces'
jleasure in her mind, which lasts 1080
ears; that hs the b'ood of three men the
ilensure is extended one hundred thousand
,c?rs. Kalce,Devce, Durgn, or Bhowanec,
is she is indilferently called, is the idol of
he drunkard and the thief; tl?e robber,
he murderer, and the prostitute, archer
ivorshippcrs; and aii delight to propitiate
1 being whose worship is obscenity, and
;vho delights in the blood of man and beast.
Until quite Intely, however, it was not known

The numerous robberies and murders

A lew-months ago a . octavo volume of
500 pages was received at the Missionary

from one of the officers of the Bengal .civil

exposure which lias ever boeu mado
of t!ic evils of idolatry. Nothing which
the missionaries over alleged against it is
so conclusive as this. Thuggee is a religious
system, and ilia Thugs praclicc murder
just as Christians do charity, ia obedience
:o the will of their god,"
The decisive measures adopted by Lord
VVm, Dentinck, then ilie Governor Generll,
resulted in tho-arrcst of more tlran 2030
Timgs. The record of the .trials i3 con*
tnined in the volume just referred to. Fifteen
hundred were convicted in one hundred
and sixty seven fripls, for the murder of
347 persons, and two hundred and fifty
were admitted as king's evidence. These
men wore commonly tried for one particular
:ase of murder, perpetrated on one expedition.
From the information before the
courts of justice, it appeared that the
murdere for which they were tried were
not more than the one hundredth part of
the murders they had committed in their
career of crime.
Mankind, ? considering flic necessity of
restraning those evil piopenstes, which
atlect the/ lift?, property, and ch iracter ot
their fellow men, commonly appeal to three
standards; 1-st. The will of the deify, as
revealed to them in their scriptures, or interpreted
to them by t'ne expounders of
heir religion. 2<J. .The moral feelings of
he circles of society in whom they move.
3d. The penal laws in force, and the char*
icut of their administration.

ixpounders of the will of their d dry, 'hat
he murders they perpetrate are pleasing to
icr, provided they are perpetrated tinder
certain restric.ions, attended by certain

rertain rites, sacrifices, and offerings. This leity,
