Farm, Garden and HonscLold. , Plant Lloe. Dr. I. P. Trimble read a paper be fore tbe Farmers' Olnb as follows : " A few years ago tbe apple orchards near Newark, N. J., presented an ap pearance similar to those blighted one so often described. The leaves first curled, then beoauae discolored, and Boon fell off, nnd also the young fruit. In a little whilo a seoond crop of leaves appeared, Rnd the trees were not seri ously injured, as there was not much return of the same tronblo in the next or subsequent seasons. The cause was n visitation of aphides, or plant lioe. By examining the under side of the youDg leaves they were found to be thickly studded with these minute parasites, feeding upon the sap, and, of course, exhausting the vitality of tbe trees. A similar eiTect may be observed almost every year upon certain cherry trees, making that crop in many places very uueertain, and especially causing the fruit to rot prematurely. In such cases the stems of the cherries will be found c...

Undoubtedly one cause of the Repnb. licon reversss last fall was that the part; went betoro the country without toy policy on the financial question. While moat of the Eastern Republicans favored the earliest possible resumption oi specie payments, and were especially earnest in opposing any further inflation of the currency, Western and Southern Republicans in Congress took an oppo site viow. The position of the admin istration was well understood to be in favor of deosiro measures to bring about a return to a specie basis. This division of opinion prevented anything like a united front by the party on the question uppermost in wen's minds, and became the most important and in fluential of the causes that contributed to the political reverses in October and Noveneber. With tho reassemb ling of Congress, an effort was made by Republican Senators to bring about a bett...

FARM, GARDEN AND HOUSEHOLD. Kitchen Harden. But little can be done here, except to look after the frames and pits, and care for Boeds, etc. Do not cover cold-frames until freez ing weather comes, and even thou air ehouldbe given during the middle of every mild day. If plonty of marsh hay or leaves are at hand, it is well to cover a quantity of pnrsnips and salsify, so that they can be dug from time to time as wanted J they are much botter than poorly kept ones. To keep roots properly in the cellar, they should bo stored in earth, and if the house cellar is used, secure ample venti lation. It is better to cover with leaves all beds of spinach which are to be loft for next spring's use, except where the win tors are mild. Bean-poles should be properly cared for under cover.
