From the Lnadonderry (Iretand) eniine. THOUGHT AND DEED. )Y CHARLES RENN KENNFDY. Pull many a light thought man may cherish, Full mauy an idle deed may do; Yet not a deed or thought sball perish Not one but he shall bless or rue. When by the wind the tree is shaken, There's not a bough or leaf shall fall, But of its falling heed is taken By One who sees and governs all. The tree may fall and be forgotten, And buried in the earth remain ; Tet from its juices rank and rotten Springs vegetating life again. The world is with creation teeming, And nothing ever wholly dies; And thingsthat are destroyed in seeming, In other shapes and forms arise. And nature still-unfolds the tissue Of unseen by spirit wrought; And not a work but hath its issue With-blessings or with evils fraught. And may'st seem to leave behind thee All memory of the sinful past; Yet oh, be sure thy sin shall find thee, And thou shalt know its fruits at last. Agricultural. SOAKING SEEDS IN CHEMICAL SoLU TIONs.-A great de...

It speaks unto the heart, But not without a sigh, Of scenes of joy, of dreams of bliss, On winged hours gone by. Wo, wo, unto the sinning wretch, Who tempted first away, The unsuspecting "Orphan Boy," From virtue's path to stray. His deeds of guilt and crime, Hee meet with jnstice due; But is there not a sentence-day, For their vile author too? For him who spreads the snare And cast his fetters round? Decoyed the youth of noble heart, ''o the enchanted. ground ? Yes, surely there's a God, From whose omnicient eye, No secret thought can e'er be hid Whose power can none d.fy.

But who can describe the power, or the domain of learning ! - Ex tending over all nature, its power is over every thing in the material world, and in the human heatt. It is the peculiar and distinguishing attribute of man. It is the pride of yotith, and the companion of old age-the grace of prosperity, and the con solation of misfortune. It conducts man with dignity through the chequered scenes of life, and teaches him how he may enter, finally, through the gloomy portals of the grave, into the blissful mansions of eternal rest.
