TUESDAY, IfABCH 30, 1858. 

Bknton's Abridgement, Vol. VI — The sixth 
volume of Benton's abridgement of the debates in 
Congress has just been issued. It comprises a 
period of our Congressional history which is peculiar- 
ly interesting to every one who desires to make 
himself familiar with the political affiirs of the 
country. It embraces the first administration of 
President Monroe, during the period from 1817 to 
1821. when great questions were presented in Con- 
gress and were debatul by the ablest men the coun- 
try has ever produced. The question as to the 
admission of Missouri and of Arkansas into the 
Confederacy was then under discussion, and almost 
all of the issues that have since and very lately 
agitated the nation so deeply were then fully 
investigated and debated at length by master minds. 
The whole question of free-negro citizenship was 
then discussed, and by the ablest and most patriotic 
men who ever met in our councils. The Ordinance 
of '87 and the whole power of Congress over the 
legislation of Territories were considered at length. 
Florida was then acquired, and the junction of Maine 
and Missouri l*elongs ta this period, a»d the whole 
of that eventful struggle is carefully preserved. The 
long-delayed ratification of the treaty with Spain 
was accomplished during this period, and prevented 
w^ when it was on the point of breaking out, by the 
interposition of the great European powers. The 
f aty-making power was discussed, its limits 
defined, and the right of the House to be consulted, 
when an appropriation was necessary, ■ as asserted. 
In this volume also will be found the important 
proceedings in the two houses on the Seminole war, 
in connection with Jackson's conduct — bis invasion 
of East Florida and hanging of Arbuthnot and 
Ambrister. The Congressional array at that time 
•was a truly imposing one — presenting a roll of great 
names, to which a mournful interest is attached. 
This great work is for sale by F. A. Crump, the 
.of the 

North British Rf.vikw.— The February num 
ber of the North British Review opens with a line 
historical essay on Walpole and Pulteney, followed 
op bv eight articles of varied interest and power, 
entitled respectively, "Naples, 1843— 1858," "Scot- 
tish Natural Science," "Logic of Induction-Mill," 
"Arnold and his School," "Proverbs Secular and Sa- 
cred," "Rambles of a Naturalist, &c," "Capital 
and Currency," and "Poetry— The Spasmodists." 
A variety of excellent critical notices conclude the 
number. The article on the Logic of Induction will 
be apt to astonish the admirers of Mill somewhat. 
The critic accuses the logician of wholly misconcei- 
ving the principle of induction, and of laying down a 
i and powerless method. And he supports the 
with great ability and acuteneas. We 
think, after rea-'iig the article twice, that 
the disciples of Mill v. .1 have to give him up on 
this point. But there is merit enough in his re- 
markable work to sustain a deduction even as im- 
portant as this. 

Atlantic Monthlt. — The April number of the 
Atlantic is quite up to the mark. The first article, 
Personal Reminiscences of The Hundred Days, by 
one who was a schoolboy in Paris at the time, is of 
thrilling interest. The Autocrat of the Breakfast- 
Table is as good as usual, and Amours de Voyage 
as bad. The poetry of the number generally, in- 
deed, is inferior to that of some of the previous 
numbers, but to make up for this deficiency, the 
political article is decidedly the ablest of the sort 
that has yet appeared in the Atlantic. As for the 
rest, there is an abundance of the choicest writing, 
iaclcding a delightful article on Persian Poetry, and 
a capital burlesque on the London Detective Police, 
attributed to the brilliant pen of Wilkie Collins. 
The number closes with a couple of tine, elaborate 
critical notices. The Atlantic is winning an envia- 
ble fame by deserving it .

[For the Loui.-ville Journal ] 
H O N O R A . 


Green forssts of Kopec, which waved lu the past. 
Up-torn from th ir roots by tempest and blast. 
Lie broken and crushed, in wide ruin cast. 

Deep rivers of Joy, which flashed far and free 
Through the plains of my soul to Love's magic sea. 
Have sunk in the sand since parting from thee. 

Storm-c'ouds of Grief, o'er-shading the day. 
Sweep down the Heavens in fearful array. 
As squadrons, unbroken, rush on to the fray. 

Of Woes, a wild array, unmarshaled in line. 

Like the clan of McGregor 'neath their banner of pine, 

Come bounding and leaping to rifle my shrine. 

The robber Death's whisper is fiendish and loud. 
And the breath of his nostril's a wor-ladeu cloud, 
For the stately Honora lies white in her shroud. 

Wail on, ye storm-fiends, 'twas yelbrought the blight; 
Flash out, ye lightning?— her eyes were as bright— • 
The fond eyes ye've darkened, through envy, in night. 

Honora. pale princess, thy long lashes sweep 
A cheek where the roses are folded to sleep. 
Their color wanhed out by the tears that 1 weep. 

The Past was an Eden of rfowers with thee; 
The ItaMfl ndtsert as waste as the sea; 
The Future, a forest «f cypress to me. 

CjTW'e learn from a passenger who came up on 
the Louisville and Henderson packet Scioto, thst 
a most horrible crime was brought to light, on 
Friday last, at Leavenworth, Ind., the particulars 
of which are as follows: During the last six or sev- 
en years, James Morri.-on, heretofore considered a 
worthy and respectable citizen of that place, has 
been rearing a little girl as an adopted daughter of 
his family. On last Friday, the little girl, who is 
about eleven years of age, was taken ill, and re- 
move! from Morrison's house to that cf his mother- 
in-law. A physician was called in to see her, when 
it was discovered that she had been the victim of a 
most horrible and inhuman outrage. She stated 
that Morrison had committed the act— that some 
weeks ago, whilst his family was at church, he had 
locked her up in his room and accomplished his hell- 
ish design, threatening to kill her if she ever 
divulged the act. She had consequently been afraid 
to disclose the crime, but finally became so distressed 
that she communicated it to Morrison's mother-in- 
law, who thereupon removed her. as before stated, 
from his house. Morrison was arrested the next 
day, upon the little girl's affidavit, and takeu before 
a Justice for examination. She told a plain, straight- 
forward story, charging him with the crime. He 
denied it of course, but, being unable to produce 
the slightest evidence of his innocence, was held to 
bail for his appearance at the circuit court, v. Inch 
convenes next Monday. 

The American Journal ok Education. — The 
March number of this invaluable quarterly is infe- 
rior in interest and power to none of its predecessors. 
The amount, variety, and excellence of its matter 
are really amazing. The work is an honor to the 
country. No periodical in America devoted to the 
cause of education has ever approached it in com- 
pleteness and ability. And there is nothing in any 
other country that resembles it. Every teacher and 
every intelligent citizen in the Union should be in 
the regular receipt of it. Subscribers will receive a 
single copy for one year by enclosing three dollars 
to F. C. Brownell, Hartford, Conn. 

The Tobacco Trade.— From our commercial re- 
port it will lie seen that the aalea of tobacco at the 
three warehouses during the past week have been 
over 800 hogsheads. This is a pretty large business. 
Though there has been a very slight decline, prices 
are still very high and remunerating to the planter. 
There is no market in the country where so much 
tobacco of an inferior quality is sold as in this, yet 
the rates realised here will favorably compare with 
those of New Orleans, Baltimore, St. L uis, or any 
other mr-rket in the interior. We believe planters 
will find it to their interest to hasten their crops to 

Of" At the meeting of the New York police com- 
missioners on Thursday, Gen. Nye offered a resolu- 
tion providing that the General Superintendent be 
instructed to open a correspondence with the chiefs 
of police of the different cities of the United States, 
with reference to the practicability of adopting some 
system of interchanging daguerreotypes or photo- 
graphs of noted criminals and suspected persons, to 
that they migh tbe numbered from one upwards, and 
a telegraph from one city to another, need only men- 
tion the particular number who ought to be arrested. 
The reeolution was adopted. 

New Music— Messrs. Faulds & Huber, music 
dealers, at Masonic Temple, have laid upon our ta- 
ble the following new publications: "La Semil 
lante Polka," composed by Strauss, and dedicated 
to Miss Mildred Ewing. It is published by D. P, 
Faulds & Co., and the engraving has been artistical- 
ly done by Slinglandt; "Pop goes the Weazel," by 
Hunter, a new arrangement for the piano, and the 
"Lancers Quadrilles," by Wallenhow. This is 
said to be the correct edition of the Lancers, with 
full explanations of all the figures at the bottom 


The river still continues to r.cede. Last evening 
there were 0 feet 4 inches water in the canal by the 
mark and 6'- ■'. feet iu the pa's on the falls. The 
Fashion left for St. Louis last evening with a beau- 
tiful trip. ILr cabin* were crowded with fami'ies, 
ihe ergine room and deck were full of negroes^ the 
guards fort and aft were taken up by horses, mules, 
and cattle, the forecastle and hurricane were covered 
by vehicles, and the hold was nllcd with moving 
plunder and merchandise. 

The Darld White. — Thii steamer, which, as al- 
ready announced, met with an accident between 
this and Evansville, gave up her trip at that point 
to the T. C. Twicbell, which t«oat started back to 
Sew Orleans. The White, it is understood, will re- 
turn to this port for repairs. 

The Southerner for Memphis. — All going South 
will avail themsel\es of the splen lid accommoda- 
tions of the Southerner, which leaves for Memphis 
at 5 o'clock this evening from Portland. There is 
no New Orleans boat in port to-day, but the South- 
erner w ill ticket passengers through and transfer 
them at Memphis to one of the large New Orleans 
packets with which she will connect. Capt.Triplett 
and Mr. Archer, her two chief officers, are gentle- 
men of deserved popularity. 

We thank our young friend, Mr. McMichael, one 
of the atsistant clerks on the Southerner, for late 
papers and copies of the manifest aud memorandum. 

The John Brlggs.— Those bound for Evansville or 
intermediate points will not forget the John Briggs, 
which is the regular packet. She leaves Portland 
at her usual hour. Mr. Gamer has kindly fnrnished 
us with the manifest. 

The cleiks of the Bracelet have our thanks for a 
copy of the manifest. The B. will leave for Green 
river to-morrow. 

The E. H. Fan-child is due from New Orleans this 
evening and will leave to-morrow evening. 

The Jacob Strader is the mailboat for Cincinnati 
to-day, the Emma Dean is the Carrollton packet, 
and the Endeavor is up for Pittsburg. 

-Kuropa Aground.— The Des Arc Citizen reports 
the New Orleans packet Europa aground in upper 
White river. 40 miles above Batesville. Fears are 
enurtnined that she wilt break in two. 

Tbe Resolute from Arkansas river reports higher 
water in that river than has been since 1852 and 
still rising. 

A city paper announced, one day last week, under 
a flaming head, a serious accident to tbe steamer 
Evansville. The Memphis Appeal, of Friday, has 
the following in regard to it: 

As the Evansville was on her way frem White 
river to this place, on Tuesday, when about 40 miles 
below, the weight of cotton on the larboard broke 
down her guard. Thirty-four bales were precipated 
into the river, which will lie brought up. 

rgnWe have seen a specimen of star candles man- 
ufactured by Messrs. Armstrong & Co. They are 
as smooth and solid as sperm, and give a light al- 
most as bright as gas. Messrs. A. & Co. have a 
reputation as curers of bacon, and they bid fair to 
earn one equally high as candle and soap manufac- 


Mm Tiki We learn from the Pine Bluff (Ark.) 
Democrat that, on the evening of the 9th instant, a 
difficulty occurred near New Gascony between Jon- 
athan Smith and Tiolus H. Bogy, which resulted 
in the death of the former. Mr. Bogy came imme- 
diately to Pine Bluff and gave himself up. He 
was examined and held to bail in the sum of $10,- 

We understand that H. H, Haynes & Co. have 
sold their large thorough bred stallion to Col. John 
II French, of Warren, for the snug sum of $1,800. 
This horse is one of the largest in the country, lwing 
nearly thirty hands hitjh, and is withal a handsome 
symmetrical animal.— AW*. WW;/. 

Ei-press Robber Arrested — Yesterday afternoon, 
officer Charles Noyes, of the firm of C P. Bradley 
& Co., detective agents, arrested David Krespner, 
upon the charge of robbing the United States Ex- 
press office, at Clevelatid, of a money package con- 
taining $900. The robbery was committed nearly 
a year ago, wbil« Krespner was in the employ of 
thie company. Officer Nojes left for Cleveland last 
evening with his prisoner — Chicago Trlb. 

[From the St. Louis Republican of Saturday.] 
Lamb, the Win MobmBBB— His Fi u. Con- 
fession. — George H. Lamb was taken before Justice 
Herckenrath yesterday afternoon, for examination 
on the charge* of having, on the 17th of December 
last, willfully, premeditatedly, and feloniously des- 
troyed the fife of his wife," Sarah S. Lamb, by 
strangulation and drowning, in the Mississippi riv- 
er. He p ead guilty and waived an examination, 
on which he was fully committed to the county jail 
to answer at the criminal court. Before being taken 
thither, howeverj he voluntarily made a frank, free, 
and full confession, which will be found appended. 
We need not a-k the attention of the reader to it, 
for the public will eagerlv peruse everything new in 
reference to this extraordinary case. It will tie seen 
that Lamb alludes to two men, whom he names, as 
having been apprised of his design before it was 
executed. Of course every effort will be made to 
find them and bring them hither. The story, it will 
be observed, is a very circumstantial one. It was 
told in a manner which convinced those who heard 
it that it was a straightforward, open, candid, and 
truthful account. We forbear to comment on the

Cyclopedia of Wit and Humor —The twenty 
second and twenty-third numbers of this interesting 
work have just been received by F. A. Crump, 
who is the agent in this city for the publish- 
er*. They are Burton's selections of the witty and 
humorous productions of America, Ireland, Scot- 
land, and England. It is embellished with a large 
number of original engravings, and is altogether one

What should we do if there were no Adams 
Express. Oue-half the time we would be left with- 
out late intelligence. Daring the past week we re- 
ceived twice a day the latest dates by express. Last 
night there was no Cincinnati mail. The Lexing- 
ton messenger of the Express favored us with a copy 
of the Commercial. 

1 think. It must have been three or four days after 
we arrived at the Astor Howe that I gave ter the 
poison. Sue was cor-fibed to her bed as moch as two 

About the 17th of December we left tbe A- tor 
House, the sun lieing perhaps two hou'3 high. I 
told her we were g"iii„' down the riv^r toCaroL«le!et. 
We kit the Astor House in a baggage cr express 
wagon. Nobody bat tbe driver wtnr with at. Hj 
wile jeemed perfectly willing to go. We went down 
to the lower ferry landing. I do not kuow who tbe 
drivtrof the bag»ane v;igon was, nor the number 
hij wagon. I think the driver was a e ! 1 
man. We went into a little room on tbe ferry wharf 
boat. There was a young man on th i landing, and 
I asked him if my wife might sit in there; he said 
she might. I told two U ys to bring me a skiff. 
We staid there until the boys came up with the 
skiff. I paid six or seven dollars for it. We had 
been there about an hour liefore the boys brought 
the skiff. We wen: down the river and stepped l e- 
low the steamboats about fifty rods, where a levee 
or street is built out towards "the river. I stopped 
to get a weight, telling my wife it was to put in the 
bottom of the boat to keep it steady. Two beys 
brought a stone apiece. I did not "get out of the 
skiff. Mv real design i*i gttting those stones was to 
sink the body of my wife. 

After getting in tbe stones we went on past an is- 
land, without any trees on it, on the Missouri side. 
I did not see Carondelet at all. I did not no ice 
more than one i-land of the  kind spoken of. We 
went down the river about half way ef the island, 
on the east side, near the chainel where the steam- 
boats run. It was getting considerably dark. It 
was rather on the Missouri side, about forty or fifty 
yard i from the shore. The tte imboat channel is be- 
tween the Illinois channel and where we were. 
When we got there I put my hand on the back of 
her neck and pushed her head down under the water, 
keeping it under water about two minutes. She was 
then dead — caused by my holding her head under 
the water. I took her shawl oil', and tied a twine 
around the stone two or three times, and attached 
it to her neck. The twine was from four to six feet 
in length between her neck and the stone. I then 
lifted the stone over the skiff and she dropped right 
down. The stone was a little larger than this lionk 
(Revised Statutes), leu or twelve pounds in weight. 
I got the twine or cord for the purpose of using it 

I then got out on to the island and shoved the 
skiff out into the stream. The  kilf was of medium 
size, from twelve to fifteen feet long. Do not recol- 
lect whether it was painted or not. I left the oars 
(three or four) in the l»oat, but did not leave any 
stones there. I then halloed for some one to come 
and take me off tbe sandbar. I halloed about one 
hour, and an old countryman (a German ; and an- 
other came and took me off. It was getting dark 
when I threw my wife overboard. I designed 
drowning her when we left the Astor House. Mv 
reason for causing her death was that I felt satisfied 
I could not live happily with her. She had never 
done or said anything to cau-e me to feel in that 
way. I had neither ill feeling toward her or toward 
any of her relatives. I felt as though I could not 
go back among my Kei^hliors with her, because I 
was afraid they would think 1 had married one be- 
low my station in life. After getting ashore at the 
island I came up to the city, it lieing about 9 o'clock 
when I arrived. I stayed that right on Broadway, 
east side, aliout half-way between Cherry and Wash 
stree's, on the same side as the hat store which caught 
on lire seme days before that time. I do n^t know 
the name of the house, nor the man that kept it. 

I left here the next (lay after, and went to see her 
parents, taking all her l aggage except what she 
had on. I told her parents I had buried her in 
Memphis, and gave them the names of doctors who 
attended on tier. I represented that I had buried 
her in Memphis because I wanted to screen or cover 
up the true facts. I married again on the 30th day 
of Decemtier Louise Shortliff. At that time she did 
not know that I had previously bceu married to 
Sarah Stafford. I married so soon after my former 
wife's death, because she said she would not wait 
for me any longer. I had kept company with her 
along in the fall before I ma'ried my other *ite. 
I can offer no other excuse for murdering my other 
wife than for the purpose of marrying this one. My 
present wife was not enct'ente before I married her. 
If there is a virtuous woman in the world, she is 
one. I had had no criminal intercourse with her be- 
fore we were married. I have made a confession in 
which I stated there were two men with me in tbe 
skiff when I drowned my wife. I made it to Mr. 
Stafford. I am sorry that I said it. That state- 
ment was false; this one I am making is a true one 
I do not know why I made the other statement; I 
suppose the evil spirit was in me. Two men knew 
of my design before it was executed, but not a great 
while before. I told them of my intention, and 

asked one to assist me in the matter. He KZf i 

his willingness to do so, out of friendship. He went 
down alone to the river, not in the wagon. His 
name is Josiah Mover, who was boarding where I 
loged the night I came back. I paid him $5, I think, 
for assisting me. He knew my intention at the time 
I went to the river. He went because I wished him 
to go. I wanted him to go with me in the ski If, at 
first, but we changed our minds about the necessity 
of going. The other man's name is Joseph Sawyer. 
I cannot say where he is now; he was in Mendota 
the day 1 left there. I told Mr. Mover, after the 
deed, that everything had gone under". Those were 
the words I used. Mover is a small sized man, that 
would weigh about 130 pounds, spare-faced, dark 
complexioned, had black hair; a painter by trade. 
I do not think he is a permanent resident of this 
city. He may be aliout 25 years oi age, or he may 
be over; about five feet high", not over thit, I think*. 

Those are the only persons I told of my design. 
There was a man named Thomas L. lieale to whom 
I said something about it; he left the city before it 
transpired. I do not know whether he knows the 
result or not. Nurp's family, at the Astor House, 
knew nothing aliout it. My aim when I came here 
was to tell all the truth, and if there i* anything in 
what I have here said contrary to my previous state- 
ments, it has not been from a desire, at this time, to 
relate aught but the truth. 1 have endeavored to 
make a frank confession. I once left the church. It 
ia the transgression of my duties toward my God 
which has brought me here and brought this on me 
Lamb made a pause of some minutes between the 
last sentence and the preceding, in which he exhib 

Raising and Feeding Hogs. — A correspondent 
of the Valley Farmer, writing from St. Loaia co., 
Missouri, says: 

I M ill give some suggestions aliout breeding an4 
raising hogs. At the outset select a good and 
thrifiy breed. If they cannot lie had, dou t get any 
until the opportunity offers, for it is better to have 
none than "land .-harks" aud thriftless breeds. The 
male heg should be kept iu a lot to himself, and 
well ftfd, but not made fat. The females abould be 
let to him in December, in orltr that the pigs iaav 
Ci-me in warm weather. When the sow is about to 
farrow, teparute her from all others. Allow her to 
go off and make her bed to herself. After she has 
farrowed feed her for sometime at her bed, that she 
may become attached to her offspring, and not al- 
low other pigs to suck her. If permitted to leave 
her bed too soon in search of food, her pigs will be 
deprived of nourishment by tbe older ones crowding 
them off. In order to secure large, strong, an3 
healthy pigs, the male should not lie allowed to 
serve the sow but once, fand then driven off; she 
will produce more pigs than if she run with the 
male during the day. The next litter of pig3 the 
time should be ro arranged that they come in Sep- 
tember, which will have to be kept over in most 
places until the next fall. The first mav be 
made to weigh from 100 to 200 lbs. net, bv the" 25th 
of November following. This may appear extrav- 
agant to the most of your readers. It is done by a 
simple arrangement, which is this: Keep food by 
th«m all the time— clover and corn, which, on the 
score of economy, is better than keeping them two 
years rooting up jtfujtures and attaining no greater 
weight. At the age of two or thre« months, pigs 
should be taken up, marked, altered, ard the root- 
er split horizontally; it is an appendage they can 
do very weil without if sufficient food is given 
them. But it is certain aL-o, that the rooter is es- 
sential when the pig is compelled to root for him- 
self. If he is properly cared for, there will be no 
necessity for his rooting up and destioving mead- 
ows and pastures to get his living. Pigs that are 
made to weigh from loft to 200 pounds at six 
months old, make delicious, tender, and juicy ba- 
con. It has quite a different tin or f rom that of the 
common scrub hog of this section. One important 
item I would fain impress upon the farmer, that is. 
to give his ho^s plenty of charcoal, rotten wood and 
ashes mixed with salt, to correct acidity. The 
best article that can be given to swine is brimstone. 
It may be given in conimeal. It is a preventive 
of sore throat, measles, aud intlammatory diaeates', 
and in all probability mav ward off the hog cholera 
that is so destruc tive in Ohio and Kentuckv. and 
may lie anticipated in Missouri. But Swift's" max- 
im — "the liest patriot is the l est man who can make 
two blades of corn grow where only one grew be- 
fore" — is applicable to pigs as well as coin. 

Covering for Milk-Pans.— a correspondent in 
the Country Gentleman gives the following: 

I have a new plan for covering milk-pans in sum- 
mer, to keep out dust, tiie?, fte. I take a piece of 
common brown sheeting and cut it about three 
inches larger than the top of the pan, ai'd make a 
wide hem, say an inch, around it. I then take large 
wire and bend it in a circle same size as the cloth, 
and run it into the hem, and fasten it there. When 
laid over the pan, the wire falls over the edge of 
the pan to the effectual exclusion of dust or any 
other substance. 

iJlJ-Patents have been issued to Stephen H. Long, 
U. S. A., of this city, for improvement in super- 
structure of railways, and to Hiram Ross, of Rock- 
port, Ind , for improvement in 

ited much emotion, laying his head ut oa his hands, 
studied and deep-laid villainy it discloses, and leave j and sodding tears. Before that, his relation was 
it to go to the world as a record of atrocious wick- calm ' a e llt  erate, at 
edness and diabolical cruelty without, we hope, a 
parallel in the annals nf crime. 

Lamb declined having any counsel. The prose- 
cution was conducted by William C. Jones, Esq , 
who interrogated the prisoner, and in answer to 
whose questions the confession was made up. There 
appeared to be no other disposition on the part of the 
accused than to tell all he knew and to keep nothing 
back. He replied to the questions without hesita- 
tion, and generally with alacrity. He said: 

I was married to Sarah EL Lamb at the court 
house in Quincy. 111., in November, 1856, by a Jus- 
tice of the Peace. I did not take mv wife with me 
to Mendota, but left her with her father at Hamil- 
ton. I went in November to her father's house to 
remove her for the purpose of going South to spend 
*.he winter. Myself and wife came to St. Louis, ar- 
riving on the 27th or 28th or 29th of November. 
We got here before daylight in the morning, and 
took breakfast and dinner at King's Hotel. We 
left King's Hotel and went to the Astor House, on 
Franklin avenue, kept by Harmon Norp. During 
the time I remained at the Astor Honse my wife 
was unwell. I had physicians attending on her — 
Dr. Christopher and Dr. Washington. Her sick- 
ness was caused by my givirg her poison — strych- 
nine, obtained on Broadway. I bought the poison 
for the purpose of giving it to her. I think I gave 
it to her twice. My intention was to destroy her 
life. I went for physicians to keen the people in the train 
house from su«pecting. I administered their pre- 
scriptions. I think she recovered from the effects 
of the poison I had given her. She vomited up the 
poif on before the prescriptions were administered. 

A Lively Place. — A recent letter from Lexing- 
ton, Texas, says: 

On Wednesday evening, the 20th January, Jack 

Harris, Jeise Parsons, and Washburn rode out 

of Lexington in company. The next day Parsons 
was found about half a mile from Lexington, with 
his brains shot out, but still breathiug. Wasburn 
was tried before a justice of the peace and acquitted; 
in fact, Harris stated to several persons that he 
(Hawris) shot Parsons himself. Harris left imme- 
diately, and has not been heard of since. 

Word came to town on yesterday that Parsons was 
dead, which is no doubt correct. The cause of the 
difficulty i3 not known. They were all three gamb- 

On Sundav morning, the 21th January, the body 
of James Cox was found suspended by a rope from 
a tree, near Lexington. Cox was seen in the town 
on Saturdav evening, the 23d, and was found next 
morning. "This is all that any one professes to know 
about the hanging, but that Cox was hung nntil 
dead, there is no mistake.' 

The farmer who gives his cattle only food enough 
to keep them from starvation, is like the steamboat 
captain who puts in only coal enough to stem the 
tide, without making any progress, and the engi- 
neer who applies only sufficient fuel to keep the 
running backward on tbe rising grade.

Clover — Seeiun ; Down, no. — In every i 
of rotation designed to keep up the fertility of the 
soil, clover takes an important place — both "for con- 
sumption as a pasture and forage crop, and for plow- 
ing under as a green manure. For the first named 
purpose, its thrifty and long continued growth well 
adapt it, though V will hardly bear pasturage as 
closely as some of the proper grasses, nor as earlv 
or as late in the sea«on, yet in the yield of whole'- 
some and succulent food for all domestic animals it 
is not to b* surpassed. For hay, if properly cured, 
it is of high value, while as a crop for plowing under 
as a fertilizer, its numerous roots, rank stalks, and 
abundant foliage supply a large quantitv of veget- 
able matter to the soil. It is also of that class of 
plants which derive a large portion of their food 
from atmospheric fources, so that its decay gives 
more to the soil than it has taken from it by its 
growth — much more comparatively than many other 
cultivated crops. 

Clover is generally sown in connection with some 
grain crop — as in the spring upon winter wheat or 
rve, or at the time of sowing spring wheat, barley, 
Jcc. It is thought to take best on winter grain, per- 
haps from the fact that it is usually sown earlier in 

he season, and gets better roote^l before the usual 
summer drouth, which is so unfavorable for set-ding 
down with late sown spring crops. Fall seedirg is 
not often practiced with clover, though we have 
known of instances where it was attended with good 

The varieties of clover generally cultivated in the 
Northern States are known as the large or pea-vine, 
and medium kinds; the latter is generally preferred 
as being the liest for hay, and of equally thrifty 
growth with the larger variety. The small kind, 
common at the South, is quite dwarfish, and not 
often grown in this section. 

In regard to tbe quality of the seed, purity is an 
essential requisite; some of the worst pests" of the 
farm have been introduced into districts to which 
they were strangers before by being sown with clo- 
ver seed brought from distant localities. The vital- 
ity of clover seed more than one year old has been 
questioned, but we think it is not injured if stored 
in a dry place, but it will not grow as readily, no 
doubt, "from the hard coat becoming still harder and 
almost impervious to moisture. Such clover seed 
sometimes vegetates the second season. 

As to the time of seeding, we think it important 
that it be early in the season, for reasons above 
stated. Clover seed may be sown in March upon 
wheat and rye, if the ground is bare, or only cover- 
ed by a light snow; the subsequent freezing and 
thawing of the surface will give it the covering of 
earth necessary to germination. With spring grains, 
we thiak it will catch with better success if sown 
liefore the last harrowing, though when a roller is 
used it might as well be sown after, as the roller 
would cover seeds so minute in size as these suffi- 
ciently. The use of the last named implement is 
important where the field is intended for meadow, as 
well as of benefit to any spring grain. 

The amount of seed required for an acre varies 
with the soil, those which are of a clayey character 
needing most. Tbe growth of the crop with which 
clover is sown also has an influence^ — tbe more close- 
ly it covers the ground, the larger tbe amount of 
seed required. About a peck to the acre, oftener 
less than more, is usually sown — too manv practic- 
ing a mistaken economy here, which tells largely 
against the yield of grass hereafter. If too little 
seed is used "to cover the ground with clover, injuri- 
ous or useless herbage fills the place, and loes is sus- 
tained by the farmer. 

The soil best liked by the clover plant is one of a 
clayey character resting upon a loamy subsoil— one 
well drained, either naturally or artificially, will pro- 
duce most luxuriint crops. Any soil suited to wheat 
will produce largely in clover, bnt light soils need 
manuring to bring good crops. Heavy ill-drained 
soils soon destroy the clover plant by freezing and 
thawing, so as to pull it out by tbe roots, especially 
in open weather, thawing days and freezing nights, 
as often happens in early spring time. 

The use of plaster *s a dressing for clover, in al- 
most all sections, adds largely to the product. It 
may often be observed that the portion of a field 
seeded and plastered takes or catches well, while 
that undressed is almost a failure. The same may 
be seen upen a closer meadow treated in the same 
manner iu regard to the hay crop. We would sow 
plaster, a bushel per acre, by all means, in every 
case of seeding clover, as soon as the young plants 
begin to appear above ground. It is often deferred 
too late for tbe good of the clover or i 
grain crop. — Country Gentleman.

Storm n England. — The Liverpool 
of March 5 says that the weather from all 
parts of England is reported as severe. In many 
parts of Yorkshire the snow has accumulated to a 
great depth; some of the country lanes are Mocked 
up, and the trains have in many instances bten de- 
layed. In the southeast of the island the fall r f 
snow has been heavy and attended with accidents. 
The Great Northern Railway was, at Grantham, en- 
tirely blocked up. The Manchester, Sheffield, and 
Lincolnshire line was covered to such a depth that 
the trains were delayed five or six hours. In the 
neighliorhood of Rochester the fall continued for 
sixteen hours without intermission, covering the 
bills to a depth of several feet and rendering many 
of the roads impassable. 

[Correspondence of the New York Timet.] 

Paris, March 4, 1808. 
First a word on a new discovery. Why is it that 
the present century is so far inferior to the centuries 
of the dark ages iu the harmony and suUimity of its 
architecture? For a long time it has been an opin- 
ion that th« singular harmony which reigns in the 
proportions of the architectural monuments of that 
age wa3 not the result of mere accident, and that 
tbere must have been some mathematical secret un- 
known to the present age. This secret, a German, 
Mr. Henzleinann, has found. It was a secret which 
belonged to antiquity as well as to the Greek and 
Roman epochs. It presided as well at the construc- 
tion of Solomon's temple, as at the Partheoons of 
Rome and Athens. The discovery of Mr. llanzle- 
mann was the result of study. With his plumb- 
line, square, and compass, he traveled through Ger- 
m -ny, ltalv, France, and England, measuring and 
calculating', and finding in all the structures of the 
different ages of the past the same harmonious lines. 
He has demonstrated l eyond contradiction, the co- 
relation of the Greek with the middle age architec- 

This secret, w hich was the property of the Brotbe* 
Masons (Free Masons of the present day) from the 
time of the building of Solomon's temple down to 
the fifteenth, i*rhaps even to the sixteenth century, 
was at last lost by them, and the sublime art of 
architecture entered its age of decadence. The 
Greeks and Hebrews took great pains to keep this 
secret. Pythagoras in Greece and Moses, David, 
and Solomon among the Israelites, were of the num- 
ber of iU possessors. The Free Masons, who are 
the descendants of these Israelite Masons, were un- 
doubtedlv the heirs of the art of Hiram, the great 
arci.iteet^ but unfortunately they have lost it. In 
the Paraltpcmene* we see David giving to his son 
the plans and descriptions which he had received 
from God, to raise to him a temple at Jerusalem; 
and, in the proportions and forms indicated by the 
different books of the Bible, we can trace the ele- 
ments of the harmonious system recognized by Mr. 

The discovery of the German architect has excit- 
ed so much interest in France, that M. Lenoir, an 
architect of this city, has made a report on this sub- 
ject to the Minister of Public Instruction and Wor- 
ship. This gentleman not only approve.- the dis- 
covery of Mr. Henzlemann, but he supports its 
truth and correctness with additional proofs. 

Rarey, the American horse-tamer, is performing 
such wonders here that only those who see bejieve. 
Horses that can only be fed through a hole cut iu 
their cage, others that are only handled blindfolded, 
in fine, horses to vicious as to be worth absolutely 
nothing to their owners are tamed by Mr. Rarey in 
fifteen minutes' time — so that he mounts their back, 
beats a drum, and tires off a pistol over them. A 
young horse, notorious for his viciousness, was 
brought all the way from Caen; Rarey shut himself 
up with the hor.«; fifteen minutes in a stable-box, 
and came out on his back with the animal peifectly 
docile. What he does to these animals no one 
knows; their owners are perfectly bewildered at the 
result. Before the commission api ointed by the 
Emperor for the purpose and the members of the 
Jockey Club, Rarey performed such extraordinary 
feats that they not "only congratulated bim, but ac- 
tually cheered bim with loud huzzas. The commis- 
sion have reported favorably to the Emperor; but it 
is not vet known what will be his Majesty's conduct 
in the" matter. Mr. Rarey offers to disclose and 
teach his secret to a club* of five hundred subscri- 
bers in England and France at fc50 each — a total of 

In the new opera of M. Halevy, the Magicianne, 
which is about to appear at the Grand Opera, a game 
of chess will be played by the corps dc ballet. In 
this animated game the dancers will be dressed in 
the costume of the various pieces of the chess-board, 
so that chess plavers in the audience can follow each 
move. For the invention of this singular interlude, 
M. Mazilier, chef de dance, claims the priority. But 
it seems that the same thing has been done at Mo- 
bile, in Alabama. At Mobile there is a society of 
anonymous young men, who meet once a year for a 
masquerade.* This year this society ordered their 
costumes from Paris — it is thus that the circum- 
stance is known here — and these costumes represent 
an old German tableau on an old bridge at Munich, 
which has been popularized by litliograpbv and pho- 
tography. The picture represents the genius of good 
and tne genius of evil, sitting face to face, with a 
large chequer-board between them, on which they 
play the destiny of humanity. Satan moves the 
black pieces, of which each represents a vice. The 
white pieces, representing virtues, are moved 
by his adversary. 

"in the secret carnival club of Mobile the meml ers 
even do not know each other. They appear sudden- 
ly in the street or in their place of reunion, without 
the public or themselves knowing from * hence they 
came. This year, as just mentioned, a ball was to 
have taken place on the last Monday of carnival, in 
which sixteen Vices were to struggle with sixteen 
Virtues, on a cheqaer-board of white and black mar- 
ble. The idea of the master dancer at the Grand 
Opera is not, therefore, new. 

The letter of Orsini to the Emperor, and which 
bis Majesty permitted M. Jules Favre, Oreini's 
counsel, to' read on the trial, has excited a certain 
sympathy in the condemned man's favor. The 
public is divided into two camps, one of which re- 
gards him as an assassin by nature, and totally un- 
worthy of sympathy, and the other which regards 
bim as a political martyr, a sort of Charlotte Cor Jay, 
dying for political fanaticism. It is believed that, 
but for the murder of so many innocent persons, the 
Emperor would extend to him his clemency, for it is 
tolerablv evident that, whatever may be the vio- 
lence of his character, Orsini was more ot less 
actuated by the ideas he enunciated on his trial — 
ideas of emancipation for Italy. Gomez wa3 not 
capitally condemned, because he was clearly a tool 
in the hands of Orsini. De Rudio was so abased in 
bis habits of life as to be scarcely able to appreciate 
the enormity of the crime in which he engaged. 
Pierri felt sure that he would not be condemned: so 
sure that it is related of him that, for several days 
before the trial, he was much concerned about his 
umbrella, which they had taken from him, and 
which he wanted when he should leave the prison. 
When, finally, he was condemned, and they at- 
tempted to place the straight-jacket on him, as is 
customary, at the prison, he flew into a violent rage, 
and abused Orsini as the cause of his present situa- 
tion. The prisoners have demanded the services of 
the chaplains, notwithstanding their appeal to the 
Court of Cassation, and are making preparation for 

At no period since tbe coup  T dot have there 
been so many political arrests as now. When two 
railway trains come in collision and a good many 
people" are killed, travelers may count on a perfect 
immunity from accidents on that road for some time 
after. But this rule, strange as it may seem, does 
not applv to the conspiracies against the stability of 
the present government; on the contrary, they seem 
to I* propagated rather, by a mania of imitation. 
Not many days ago a large number of arrests were 
made in the bcmlieue, report says one hundred and 
fifty, of a band whose object was to take the life of 
the Emperor. This was an exclusively French 
conspiracy, and was organized before the affair of 
the Grand Opera. It none the leas continued its 
organization, however, after that event, and, per- 

haps, was onlv discovered by the extraordmary 
surveillance which is now required. At Lyons, 
and in two other towns of the South, large numbers 
have been arrested known to I* affiliated with se- 
cret societies, whose objtct is the overthrow of the 
present government, by assassination or otherwise. 
In the Soath and center of the Empire, there socie- 
ties have ceased to meet in large number?, or to 
ba known to each other in greater numbers tnan 
three to six. Thus the word of order is passed .rom 
squads of two or four, or from one man to another, 
without knowing or seeking to know who their 
brother conspirators a:e. The signs and passwords 
»re a sufficient guarantee of identity. The conspi- 
racy is thus reduced to a kind of Free .Masonry in 
iU form, into which it will be impossible for the 
police to enter. . 

Thus we see the net work of dangerous combina- 
tions which surround tbe life of the Emperor. Eico 
of thefe societies operates independently, but each

[Correepoudence of the N. V. Tribune.] 

San Fraxcisco, March 5, 1858. 
The rains which occurred previous to the 20th ult 
caused tbe streams in tbe northern part of the State 
to ita to a great height. A large portion of the Sac- 
ramento Vallev was overflowed and a large amount 
of stock was" drowned. Sacramento City itseif 
would have been flooded but for tbe levee, and there 
was a little fear for that. The Klamath and its trib- 
utary, and streams which empty into Humboldt and 
San* Pablo bays, overflowed their banks and did 
consideral de damage to property. A large reservoir 
of the Yi ka ditch was broken and a Hood of water 
poured through the valley, sweeping everything in 
its course. . . , 

The weather has been favorable for mminjr, and 
we have news of some great strikes. The Ameri- 
can Company at Chip's Flat, in Sierra county, lately 
took 200 pounds of. quariz from their lead by blast- 
ing, which quartz yielded £5,000 in gold. This 
company also has a placer claiiu, from which they 
have washed out $120,752 since September, 18oo. | 
The Sonora MM reprt that $10,(00 were taken 
out of the cardinell quartz claim, near Tuttletown, 
during the week ending on the 20th u!t. 

The trial of Henry B ites, late State Treasurer, 
on a charge of embezzling §47,000 from the State 
Treasury, was held in Auburn on the 20th ult., and 
the jurv brought in a verdict of acquittal. He had 
previously been tried twice for the same offense and 
the juries had disagreed. There were two other in- 
dictmenU aeainst him for similar offenses, but both 
have been dismissed, and he now goes free. It is 
certain that $125,000 were taken from the State 
Treasury during his term of office, but whether he 
was a partv to the fraud is not proved. E. A. Rowe, 
who had been in prison at Sacramento for a year for 
refusing to testify before the Grand Jury, as to what 
le knew of the missing money, has come forward 
and testified that he rave the $124,000 to Mr. Edw. 
Jones, of the banking house of Palmer, Cook, & Co., 
for safe keeping, because that firm had a good safe 
aid Mr. Jones was a responsible man. Mr. Jones 
went to New York after getting his money, and has 
not made his appearance here since. 

It is now well understood that the cause of the 
suicide of Harrison, Chief Deputy of the late Sher- 
iff Scannell, was the involved condition of the pecu- 
niary affairs of the office. 

Gov. Weller bis transmitted to the Legislature 
copies of correspondence relative to several late ex- 
ecutions authorized bv law. One of the letters 
addressed bv the Governor to the deputy-sheriff of 
Monterey county is particularly severe upon the 
latter, and charees him with having been "guilty of 
judicial murder ' in the execution of Jose Anastasio, 
who had been respited under the name of Anastasio 
Jesus. The sheriff has replied in a very insulting 
letter. . 

A series of resolutions approving of the course of 
tbe President on the Kansas question were adopted 
iu the Assembly yesterday by a vote of 49 to 18— 
13 members being absent. The Sanate adiourned 
by a vote of 15 to 14, for the purpo; a of avoiding the 
consideration of the matter until the departure 
of this steamer. The action of the Assembly does 
not represent the feeling of the Democratic party 
here. Three out of four of the Democratic news- 
papers in the State are with Douglas, and a still 
larger proportion of the voters. 

Flout continues to command from $17 to $20 per 
bbl. ., . 

The contract for the conveyance of the mails l e- 
tween San FraDcisco and New York has been brought 
before the public here by a report of a joint commit- 
tee of the Legislature. The committee says the 
present contract is exorbitant, and they believe that 
the present contractors are paying Mr. Yar.derbilt 
$40,000 per month for keeping off competition. The 
committee does not sUte what evidence they have 
to justify such a belief. They say that the present 
contract" has expired under a strict consti action of 
the act of Congress authorizing the formation of the 
contract. The report recommends that the convey- 
ance of the mails be given to two new and distinct 
companies, each one to be responsible for carrying 
the mail tbe whole disunce twice a month each way, 
the davs of starting for one company to be about the 
5th anil 20th, and of the other about the 13th and 
28th, so that we should have a weekly connection. 
The report further recommends that before any 
steamer sets sail for a foreign port, the captain shall 
be required to make affidavit that he is provided 
with pumps, life-boats, and life-preservers, as re- 
quired bv law. 
Two steamers are up to-day for Panama. Tbe 

pany was the cause of his murders and suicide. 
About two months ago he had made an assignment 
of all his property to his creditors. He had 00- ■ 
taidad seven ounces and a ln lf of prussic acid from 
Baa Francisco, for tbe express purpose of commit- 
ting this crime, which he planned deliberately and | 
carried out coollv. The Telegraph says: 

"The acid, which is almost instantaneous in ite 
effects, had been administered to each one separate- j 
ly, in different rooms, and a pillow, no doubt, im- | 
mediately pressed upou their faces, to smother any 
posiibb "outcry. When found, the face of each 
body, with the exception of that of Mr. Brennan, 
was covered with a pillow. Mrs. Brennan was un- 
doubtedly the first victim; theu the children, one 
after another, the tragedy finally closing with the 
unfortunate man himself. 

"The high social position which the parties held 
in our midst, aud wherever they were known, has 
added greatly to the intensity of feeling and interest 
which the event has produced. Mr. Brennan was a 
man of high intellectual culture, having been a 
graduate of Trinity College, Dublin. Mrs. Bren- 
nan was al;o a lady of very superior intellectual 
and social endowments; she spoke some four or five 
languages. The children were beautiful, intelligent, 
and exceedingly interesting. They had been resi- 
dents of Grass Valley for the past year and a half, 
and during that time Mrs. Brennan, in particular, 1 
had acquired the love of all who knew her, by her 1 
amiabilitv, her good sense, and kindly disposition. 
The most" perfect union existed between the husband j 
and wife, and both, at all times, exhibited the great- j

intimate with them unite in saying that a happier ,

the brain of a loving husband and doting father, and j 
thus brought on the terrible catastrophe.

most conclusively that Mr3. B.fwas an unconscious 
party to the dreadful tragedy. How the poison was

The second deed of blood in our buderet of news 
for this fortnight is the killing of Win. Keynclds at 
North San Juan. The town had been full of talk for 
some ten days previous to the 22d ult., when the 
tragedy occurred, about an alleged discovery of an 
adulterous connection between Reynolds and a Mrs. 
Northrup, and a bloody affray was expected as a 
matter of course, but so "many days had passed with 
nothing more than talk that it was supposed that 
Northrup would not attempt to wash out with blood 
the stain upon his honor. But soon after the stage 
! arrived at San Juan on the evening of the 22d ult., 
with Reynolds as driver, he wa* attacked in the 
hotel where he stopped, and was killed. His body 
was pierced by half a dozen balls from a revolver. 
It is said that Northrup committed the homicide. 
He gave himself up, but was discharged.

New Yokk, March 30. 
The Times's Washington correspondent says every 
member of the caucus committee was present at the 
meeting vesterday. Mr. English, of Indiana, led 
off' on the" anti-Letompton side, but would not make 
a formal proposition until certain concessions were 
granted. The Lecomptonites would concede nothing,

over two hours, without an agreement. Messrs.

Washixotox, March 29. 

The Democratic Caucus Committee met this eve- 
nin* at the capitol, all the members present except 
Mr.*Graig, of Missouri. There was a full and fiee 
comparison of views and interchange of opinions, 
and all was conducted with the utmost harmony. 
Several amendments to the Kinsas bill were sug- 
gested and explained, but the Lecoinptonites thought 
that their substance was already embraced in the 
measure. One point discussed was the power of 
the people of Kansas to amend their constitution 
before 186 L . . p 

On this there was * diversity of opinion, but therr' 
was general agreement that it would be subject to 
amendment prior to that time notwithstanding the 
wording of the ^j^J^JJ CM nmitM* mU 
journed without taking any vote on Hie propositions 

P Tuc1ntemplated that an effort will be made to- 

morrow night in caucus to reconcile the contfietin^c 


A caucus was also held to-night in one of tie 
committee rooms of the capitol. Its exact charac- 
ter could not be ascertained, but one of the anti-Le- 
c-ompton Democrats who had just attended the 
conference committee of twentv, was present. It is 
l elieved that the caucus was composed of antt-Lo- 
compton Democrats generally.

[From the Ohio Valley Farmer.] 

Ccbe fok PonUV ix Houses. — Sfr. Editor: j 
I wish to make known to the puiilic, through the j 
columns of the Ohio Valley Farmer, my method of 
curing the di temper in horse*. I have made use cf 
this remedy for the la*t thirty- five year?, and I am 
satisfied there in nothing superior lb it, and that it 
will cure when all othtr remedies fail. There can 
be no question that teas of thousands of dollars are 
lost every year among the farmers of the West from 
this Jise&ie among horses. But, from my knowl- 
edge of the curative properues of my favorite medi- 
cine, if my test horse should be attacked with tbi* 
disease it would (rive me no concern whatever. I 
regard it as a tritiiner matter, because I know it is 
s© easily managed. The remedy consists \i what 
we farmers call "'the I'oison Vine," or "the Prison 
Mercury."* It is a climbing plant, to be found in 
nearly all our pastures or meadows, climl ing up old 
stumps or Uees, and over-running our fences. There 
are two kinds, one a three leafed (which is really 
poisonous), and the other the jire leaved, which is 
not poisonous, and which is the kind I make use of 
in curing "the distemper." 

In the summer season I give it to a horse attacked 
with this diseaie, by gathering a gowl large handful 
of the vines and "leaves, and putting them in a 
bucket of water. After the water has extracted a 
surhcieut quantity of the virtues of this plant, 1 
give it as a drink to the horse. If he wi'l drick 
pure water he will seldom refuse this. But some- 
times a horse becomes so b*d as to refuse drink of 
any kind. In such a case, boH the water, with the 
"vines and leaves" placed in it, till a strong tea is 
made, and then put it in a bottle and force it down 

In winter I use it by boiling the woody parts and 
the roots: or sometimes by simply mashing them up 
and putting them in water long enough to medicate 

No particular harm will be done to a horse if an 
over-dose is given. It will simply salivate the ani- 

1 have found this vegetable to act also in a mo.t 
magical manner when given to a horse "out of con- 
dition." It seems to act as an alterative, and 
causes him at once to begin to thrive and fatten. 

In curing a horse of distemper, of course it is de- 
cirable to commence giving him this inedieine la 
soon after he is attacked as possible. 

But I have succeeded in effecting cures when tiie 
disease had t een running for a long time. About 
two or three years ago, some of the Shakers, who 
live near by me, brought a horse that was the worst 
I ever saw. I am confident they had little expecta- 
tion that he could he cured: and I believe I could 
have bought the horse of them for twenty dollars. 
He seemed blind from the effects of the distem- 
per. I had the satisfaction, however, of seeing him 
perfectly cured by my manner of treatment, and the 
Shakers afterwards sold him for two hundred dol- 
i Co., U., Feb., 1858. 

*The botanical name of the plant to which oar corres- 
pondent evvl?ntly alludes is ampelojniit f Ml* wtm/Wtsy 
in addition to being railed the "pouxm vine," it is 
I by some the "Virginia creeper," and by others the 

i three-loafed plant he refer* to as really poisonous is 
\uh radicans, and is described by Iindley a* being 
"extremely venomous, and, being volatile, as capable of 
lg person* who approach it in hot weather." 

Ed. Ohio Valiey Farmer. 

Osage Orange kor HEix;r.s. — Professor J. B. 
Turner, of Illinois, the Napoleon in Osage Orange 
culture, has given his opinion on the reliability of 
this shrub as a bedgeplant, in a letter recently pub- 
lished in the Country Gentleman. The judgment 
he expresses may be summed up in the following 

L That the Osage Orange vB| after one year's 
growth, endure all the frosts which occur in our or- 
dinary winters. It should not be exposed the first 
winter after it has grown from the teed; cor will it 
prove hardy on swampy lands, till they have l een 
thoroughly underdrained. 

2. The causes of failure in mos.t cases have bees 
imperfect preparation of the soil, poor plants, care- 
less culture, or the entrusting of the job to "pro- 
fessional hedge-makers," who were strangers to 
their employers. 

3. He intimates that farmers should persevere in 
the wotk of planting the Osage Orange for fences, 
using greater care, and doing the work in every re- 
spect better i hat; heretofore. A farmer may on good 
soil bring a hedge to serve as a good fence in four 
years from planting. The hedge need not cost over 
fifty cents a rod. 

4. He feels that this interest, as well as other de- 
partments of agriculture, needs the fostering care 
of State institutions, and he has been hboring for 
this object now for several years. 

We give the above synopsis of the views cf this 
able pioneer in the hedge enterprise, because his 
judgment is of great value, and because this matter 
of fences is of great importance to farmers gener- 
ally. — Ohio Farmer. 

Advantages of Rotation n Crops.— 1. E*ch 
crop exhausts the soil of certain elements. Contin- 
uing the same crop for many years consumes these 
elements. The soil will not produce that crop lon- 
ger. Another crop consumes another order of ele- 
ments, and will flourish when the first will not grow. 

2. Each plant, while growing, throws off certain 
matters which are not favorable to the growth of 
successive crops of the same plant. Plants in this 
respect are somewhat like animals, which always 
avoid their own excrements. Now other plant* may 
use these matters. Hentfe a rotation is profitable, 
because one crop may take up what another throws 

3. Certain cropsjhave certain insects that prey on 
t htm. The cultivation of the same crop for many 
years favors the multiplication of these insects. 
Change the crop, and you diminish or destrov 

4. Various crops furnish various kinds of manures, 
which are found profitable on a farm. He who wants 
this variety w ill find a rotation the simplest and 
easiest way to secure it. 

5. A rout ion in crops results in some great social 
advantages. Among these are the following: A 
community which pursues a good rotation will be 
more independent or foreign supplies. It will pass 
through a season of scarcity with less suffering. 
Its fanners will be more intelligent, because their 
experience will be varied. Their prosperity, too, 
will be more equal, as it will not depend on the ups 
and downs of a single crop. — Ohio Farmer.

Monday's Proceeding*— Concluded. 

Washington, March 29. 

geaafe.-rMr. Hunter advocated the amendmen 
giving only oi;e representative. 

Messrs. Pu^-h and Fitch w ere in favor of three, or 
at ksufl two. The latter complimented the law-abid- 
ing and industrious character of the people. 

Mr. Collamer was in favor of one representative. 

llr. Simmons thought it should have two, ptovid- 
ed a fraction permitted a second. 

Mr. Trumbull would base the population on tre 
census of Iowa, which, with 600,000 or 800.000 
population and 90,000 Presidential vote, has only two 

Mr. Polk argued strongly for three, her cenr.n be- 
ing imperfect: ar:d if Iowa is imperfectly represent- 
ed, it is no reason why Minnesota should be also, 
lie would move an amendment that Minnesota be 
allowed three repretentatives and that a new census 
be taken and proper pay given to the census takers 
in order to have it correct. 

Mr. Brown, of Miss., said he would support Mr. 
Wilson's amendment, but not on party grounds. 
He repudiated the action of Minnesota, whicn is yet 
■ Territory, usurping the functions of a State and 
electing Congressmen. 

FinalK Mr. Mason's amendment of Mr. Douglas's 
amendment, that Minnesota shall have but one rep- 
resentative in Congress, was negatived— yeas 8, 
navs 41. 

Mr. Wilson's amendment was then put, which 
gives one rcpresentati\e now, a census to be taken 
forthwith, and additional representatives ! e allowed 
on the basis or the census returns. Carried. Yeas 
22: nays 21. 

The yeas are as follows: Messrs. Biggs, Broderick. 
Brown." Cameron, Chandler, Clark, Collamer. Crit- 
tenden, Dixon, Doolittle, Durkee, Fessenden. Fos- 
ter, Hale, Harlan, Houston, King. Pugh, Simmons. 
Wade, Wilson, and Douglas. 


House — Mr. Ready argued in favor of I^ecompton 
and justified the repeal of the Missouri compromise. 

Mr. Gouch opposed I ecompton. It was not the 
will of the people, but pollufed by fraud and vio- 
lence and could not be amended before eight ytars 
without a revolution. 

Mr. M ade said the present excitement grew out 
of the conflict between the free and slave Slates. 
When the two are reconciled then will \ c a political 

Mr. Ta  lor, of La., argued to show the superiority 
of capital over labor, contending that the South was 
the coir portion of the country in which white labor 
leceives due honor. 

Mr Olin, of N. V., said that the Kansas-Nebras- 
ka bill was never designed to recognise popular sov- 
ereignty. It was the machinery in the hands of 
corrupt men to control the affairs of the Territory 
irrespective of the will of the people. He main- 
tained the right of the people to govern the Territo-

The Navy Department received dispatches from 
Lieut. Craven, dated Pississi, Feb. l«th and 22d. 
They state that the expedition had returned to the 
Gulf of Darien for want of provisions. Considerable 
ill health had prevailed, and Surgton O'Hara was 
left at Pississi to attend to the sick. Lieut. Craven, 
on his way down the Atrato, met Lieut. Michlin's 
division, "who were running the level with great 
rapidity. Lieut. C. confidently expected the »ur-

[For the Louisville Journal.] 
Messrs. Editors: Permit me to call the attention 
of Dr. Craik and the large assembly he addressed 
on last Sunday night to some startling expressions 
used (perhaps incautiously) by the reverend and 
eloquent speaker: 

"fms strange conceit," said the Doctor, "that 
immersion is essential to baptism has divided our 
brethren from us." 

Then immersion is a "conceit," and a strange one. 
Of this "conceit" and of its strangeness I wish to 
give the Doctor a few notes from authority that he 
cannot gainsay. 

• The offices or liturgies for public baptism," savs 
Dr. Wall of the Established Church of England, 
"did all along, so far as I can learn, enjoin dipping 
without any mention of pouring or sprinkling. The 
The Manuele ad usum Sacrum, printed 1530, the 
21st of Henry VHIth, orders thus for the public 
baptisms: 'Then let the priest take the child, and, 
having asked the name, baptize him by dipping him 
in the w ater thrice.' " 

In the Common Prayer-Book, printed 1549, the 
2d of King Edward VI, the order stands thus: 
"shall dip it in the water;" but, "if the child be 
weak, it shall suffice to pour water upon it." "After- 
ward, the books leave out the word thrice, and do 
say, 'shall dtp it in the water.' " 

Now, if immersion is a strange conceit, did not 
the founders of the Protestant Episcopal Church 
give to its observance the sanction of their authori- 
ty? Did they sanction and enjoin a strange conceit? 
' But a more startling statement than even this fell 
from the lips of the Rev. speaker. Said hi 

church has with united

"-iud for sprinkling, properly so called, it seems 
it was at 1015 just then beginning and used by very 
few. It must have begun in the disorderly times of 

"So (parallel to the rest of their reformation) they 
reformed the font into a basin. This learned assem- 
bly (the Directory) could not remember that fonts 
to baptize in had been always used by primitive 
Christians long before the beginning of Popery and 
ever since churches were built; but that sprinkling 
for the common use of baptizing was really intro- 
duced (into France first, and then into the other 
Popish countries) in times of Popery, and that ac- 
cordingly all those countries in which the usurped 
power of the Pope i9 or has formerly been owned 
have left off dipping of children in the font." "Hat 
all other Christians in the world who never owned 
the Pope's usurped power, do, and ever did, DIP 
their infants in the ordinary use." 

Such is the testimony of Dr. Wall, an Episcopal 
historian, whose statement is backed by authori- 
ties that w'll not be challenged. Could Dr. Craik 
be aware of this when he affirmed that the church, 
with united voice, decided that affusion is baptism, 
and that the primitive Christians did not immerse? 

"The general and ordinary way was to baptize 
by immersion" says Dr. Wall. "This is so plain 
and clear by an infinite number of passages that as 
one cannot but piiy the weak endeavors of such 
Pedo- Baptists as would maintain the negative of it. 
So also we ought to disown and show a dislike of the 

rfane scoffs which some people give to the Anti-Pe- 
Baptists for the use of dipping." 
Such were the feelings of "pity and dislike" ex- 
perienced by more than one listener to the "weak 
endeavors" and taunts of Dr. Craik on last Sunday 
night. S. H "

Mr. Ed. Helwig. of New York. Mr. H. can execute any

In many fine Watches that are broken, parts are substi- 
tuted greatly inferior to the origiual, the customer paying

parently performs well afterward for a while, but is more 
imperfect and le« valuable than originally.
