Stonewall Jackson's Early Life at
West Point
When the day came for the exami
nation of the section in which Jack?
son was placed, the poor fellow was
in a most unhappy state of miud. Hia
whole soul was bent upou passing.
When be went to the blackboard tbo
perspiration wns streaming from bis
fuce, nnd duriug the whole examina
tion his anxiety was painful to wi t.
ness. While trying to work out hia
example in fractions the cufTs of his
coat, bist the right and then the left,
were brought into requisition to wipe
off the perspiration which streamed
from his face. But be passed credi
tably, and I shall never forget how
pleased be looked as be was told that
he could Uike his scat, and I think
every member of the examining board
turned away his head to bide the
sinilo which could not be suppressed.
Examination over, then camo the en
campment. The suit of jeans was re
placed by the cadet uniform, and
then "Old Jack" looked at a little
distance, like the most of plebs. After
encampment came the season for
study, and you may be sure that uo
time was idled away by "the member
from Clarksburg." Never was there
such beuing (a West Point expression
for bard study.) His whole life was
devoted to the one thing of preparing
for the January examination.
Here he \v?s again successful, but
the scene at the blackboard, although
in midwinter, was a (repetition of the
one in June. He found himself rather
low down in his class, but be had
learned how to study, and he bad the
hearty sympathy and good will of all
the professors and instructors. At
the second June examination he pass
ed so well that be was well up in his
class, end out of all danger. But he
never relaxed his hold. Through the
whole lour years ho wus one of the
hardeststudents. * At evesy examina
tion he rose higher and higher, and
had llie course \ieetl five yeurs 'insieiui
of. lour, 1 believe "Old Jack" would
have brought up in the engineer
Jackson's career in the army dur
ing the few years be remained in it
was highly creditable to him. He
commanded a section of Magruder%a
Battery at the storming of Chappulte
pec, and those of the old oflicers who
saw him on that occasion will never
forget his cooluess and the dogged
courage with which be held bis posi
tion under a terrible fire from the
castle. He was of the same order of
man as George H. Thomas?men
whom nothing could daunt, und who
were alwaa found in the right place,
and whom nothing but death could
take from what they considered their
place of duty.
Good Advice.
Governor Vance, at the Weldoh
Fair, gave bis hearers some very
sound advice. lie said the late war
had taught the South several impor
tant lessons, which be proceeded to
specify. One of them was, that cot
ton is not king, but that meat and
bread are, and be urged the Impor
te nee not only of producing enough of
these for home use, but also of engag
ing in manufactures. "We must not
rely upou the North " be said, "for
our wheel bubs and axe handles our
buggy shafts, and every mechanical
and domestic article we use, but must
get to making those articles for our
Another lesson was, that the South?
ern people should hut depend alto
gether upon negro labor, but must go
to work lor themselves. He drew a
picture of half a dozen white men "sit
ting around a store door, whittling
white pine and cursing the negro be
cause he won't work," and in contrast
with this he painted the happiness
and independence of a family "who
are not ashamed, nor afraid, nor loo
lazy to do their own work." ibis is
good, wholesome talk, a d its utter
ance by a Democratic Governor of a
Southccn State shows how groat a
change the war and its concomitant
events have really wrought. Lot
those good people of the North, who
feel that the South cannot be trusted
to get along without the special super
vision of the Federal Government
tako courage from thi.s evidence of
progress. The reform which springs
from tbo ^lidst of a people, and has
its origiu in their own expanding idoas
and improving k< ntimeuts, is iuiinitely
more substantial than any tvhiuh
could be imposed by an exterior
Originality in Farming.
There are two ways in which a far
mer may manage his business. He
may observe definite rules without
regard to varying circumstances, or
be may be guided by his own judg
ment and regulate his own operations
according to conditions. There is a
tendency among a {urge class of far
mers to be guided by maxims which
they have received from their fathers,
They plant their corn an I wheat as
nearly as possible on stated days or at
stated time i of the moon. They hoe
and cultivate their corn a given num
ber of times with -ut much regard to
tba condition of the soil, and in all
the routine of farm wotk they keep
as nearly ns possible in the old track,
believing that to be the only safe,
When we consider the variety of
circumstances under which the same
crops are raised in different localities,
it is evident that no rules can be
given for their management that it
will be best to follow in all cases.
There are fields of corn , that will
thrive and produce well with very
little culture, while others will be
nearly ruined by quack grass and
thistles, without ver\ thorovgh culti
vation. Sometimes the weeds ure of
such a kind that smoothing harrow
is the best implement that can be used
for destroying them, while at others
the time-honored corn plow ts the
onlv instrument that will prove effoe
! tual. .Ljiless ?i lie {uriucr use- HL^.r^
ment in the management of hi-corn
he will not always get it at the least
cost pcrbusbel.
The same may be said of every de
partment of farm labor. The old
ru'es may be safe, but there is some
times a better way, and the farmer
who can look beyond, and see when
his practice?and it may be varied
with piofit?has an advantage over
others. There is as much"opportunity
for ma ' iug good results in raising
crops by taking advantage of circuiu
Btnncos, as there is in sidling them by
taking advantage of the markets. It
is of ten noticed that the farmers who
do the most bard work do not always
succeed the besi.
This is because they do little think
ing. The question should always be:
"How can I apply my labor so that
it will be most effectual!'' Many far
! iners accomplish more with tber heads
than with their bauds.
There is an opportunity for origi
nality not only in the management of
crops, but as well in all the appur
tenance of the farm.? Dingo /itini/.

Singular Vitality of Trees.
A correspondent of the Georgia
Grange gives the following account of
a long sea-transportation of trees,
and their prolonged vitality under
adverse circumstances. It is vouched
for as being correct. The correspond -
cut says: ' Mr. Parson,our inform
ant, says ibat before leaving Atlanta,
two years ago, be gave an order to a
house in that city for 130 apple trees,
100 pear, 30 grape-vines, 6 figs, 2 mul
berry, 2 walnut, 2 pomegrantes, and
a number of peach,cherry and plum
trees. He directed his order sent to
Aukland via Liverpool. By the
oversight or neglect Jof his agent, this
selection of fruit trees reached its
destination in precisely ten months, j
lacking two days. When the tigent
at Aukland advised Mr. Parson of I
the arrival of bis trees, of course this j
badly-treated gentleman refused to I
receive them. But the agent was so
anxious to have a test made of the |
vitality of the trees that he o lie red to
sharo tbo loss in the freight, which j
w as just $10 for a trip of 7,000 miles.
Mr. Pnrson agreed to the proposition,
took the treea to his farm, a little
way out of the city, aud after letting
them lie for forty-eight hours in hid
spring branch, lie planted them out.
Now for the result. Of the 130 trees,
120 were alive and nourishing beauti
ltillv 4in July, when Mr. Parson left
home; of the pears thirteen lived and
did well; fifteen out of the thirty
grapevines lived; five out of six figs;
both of the mulberiies; both of the
walnuts. The stone fruit all died
above the roots, but many of the
roots were alive. These trees were
parked in a large box, and remained
in it we may say ton mouths, and
traveled 3,000 mile? to Liverpool an 1
7,000 to Aukland.
The Lion Lav/ Re-Enacted.
The old lien law has been re-en
acted with only such new features as
are embodied in the following:
"Sec 5. That each landlord leas
ing land for agricultural purposes
shall have a prior and preferred lien
for rent to the extent of one-third of
all crop8 raised on his land, and en
foroible in the same manner as liens
for advances, which said lien shall be
Valid withniU rrnnrdjn.- 0y fiisus*."
That Section ? be amended so as to
read us follows:
Sec. G. That every lien for advan
ces and for rent, when the agreement
is lor more than one-third of the
croj), shall be filed in the office of the
Register of Mesne Conveyances for
the county in which the lienorresides
within thirty days from the clays of
the lien; and the said lien for rent
over one-third of the crop shall there -
bjj no made valid; and the -aid Reg
ister shad keep an index of all such
liens so tiled, for each of which he
shall receive fifteen cents from the
party filing the same, and this .?hall
be a sufficient record of t he same."
Froni this it will be seen that the
;> ?'i^ Jmportaiii changes ag* two :
first, the lau i owner- cauiiot be de
prived of rent ? f one*third of the
crops, by reason of a lien given to
any one else; second, the expense of
recording is reduced from 81.50 to
15 cents. The law has not yet re
ceived the signature of the Governor,
bui doubtless will in a few days. The
Legislature has acted wisely in this
matter, as a large number of the poor
er class of citizens will feel much re
lief at the resuscitation of a measure,
which will (liable them to puss
through the year without suffering.
The Oak and the Squirrel.
It is not generally known how
much we, as a lnnratime nation, are
indebted to our litt'e friends, the
squirrels, 'fhese active little fellows
render important service to our navy;
for most of the line oak trees, \.hieh
are impoilnnt in ship-building, es
pecially for vessels of war, aro pi anted
by the squirrel. A gentleman walk
ing one day in the wood belonging to
the Duke of Beaufort, in tho county
of Monmotilh, of England, hud his
attention attracted by one of these
crackers of mils; the squirrel sat very
composedly upon the ground, ami the
gentleman paused, to watch his mo
tions. In a few moments the crea
ture darted with wonderful swiftness*
to the top of the tree beneath which
it had been sitting. In an instant he
returned, currying an acorn in his
mouth; this acorn he did not eat but ,
lie began to dig a ho o in the ground
with his paws. When the hole was
large and deep enough to please him,
ho dropped the acorn into it, and
then covered up his treasure. This
little animals industry was certainly
not with the intention of providing
us with oaks, but with thai of provid
iiig for himself, when food would he
less plen iful; the holes were his winter
store-house. As it is probable that
the pquirrel's memory is not suffi
ciently retentive to enable him to
remember all the spots in which he
deposits these acorns, the industrious
little fellow no doubt loses a few every
year; toeso spring up, anil in due
