Position of American Farmers. Every one that eats bread or wears cloth made of cotton, wool or flax, has a direct personal interest in the results bfT tillage and farm economy. Hunger and nakedness arc wants'of the most pressing character ; and Providence has placed them alike in-every-human bring, lit civilized ; communities, all are equally dependant on successful agriculture'for the means of subsistence. Let the soil be permanently ex-. hausted, or.fail-but for a year to reward ¦ the labor of the husbandman, and no Ian-. guage can adequately describe the intensity of the universal suffering that must ensue. Hence this branch, of national industry has peculiar and paramount claims to the earnest attention and ifie fostering care of all governments which are regardful of the : public safety, and sustained by common . sense. American agriculture offers for consideration several interesting and striking features ; prominent among those is the fact, that nearly three-fourths of ...

Transplanting Trees. In taking up trees for transplanting, regard should always be had. to their size, and a due proportion should be preserved between the size of the tree and the amount of root attached. A deficiency of root may be partially, but not wholly compensated by a diminution or entire removal of _ the top; but there should always be root enough to supply the wants of the body, (which, if large, requires more nourishment to sustain it.) A deficiency of top, however, is less fatal, especially in the .early part of the season, than a deficiency of root; for if there be enough of the latter, the tree will readily make enough of the former as fast as it shall be needed ; but if there be a deficiency of root although the tree may live and even grow for a time on account of innate, vital energies, yet it will very probably die before the close of .the season. A It is for this reason ihat many trees that "start well" are often found to die in the latter part of the summe...

Closer! the Session. The Legislature adjourned sine die on the 15th instant, after a session of ninetyeight days. Thete has been little done during the session for the public good; special legislation has occupied most of the time; and„we cannot yet tell haw much injuiy or uyw llulej'guud hus been eflected. It is at all times a relief to know that the Pennsylvania Legislature has adjourned. We are then safe, arid breathe more freely -for another nine months. The General Appropriation bill, which had been a subject of contention for a long time, ^passed finally in the last hours, without scarcely an effort to amend in either branch, and in a shape the most objectionable of! any it has assumed. It has probably ere this received the Executive sanction, though we are sore such would riot be the case had it passed at an earlier day. The Judicial District bill failed. It was sent to the Executive with the marks of incompetency and hasty legislation upon every;line, he could not but ...

Another turn at Cuba. If either private or public information is to be relied upon, another scheme of H>nlawful violence, to be directed against a territory of a friendly power, in the form of an attempt upon Cuba, is on foot. The National Intelligencer has letters from the interior of Georgia, stating tho departure of a number of persons for the Gulf Coast, intending to meet and organise somewhere on the Coast in tho neighborhood of Appalachicola. We have also from the Atlantic (Ga.) Intelligencer, of the 10th inst., the distinct statement of the fact of the departure of a considerable body of men from that point, in tho same direction. We cannot doubt that the authorities of tho United States, Civil and Naval, will be on the lookout to prevent or defeat, this new attempt to dishonor this Republic in its own estimation, and in the opinion of all the civilized world. The Atlanta paper says " one hundred and twenty enterprising looking men took the Macon and Western ca...

General Scott. Among many of the leading journals of the country which have recently referred favorably to the proposed nomination of Gen. W infield Scott for .the Presidency of the Uuited States, one of the latest and most influential is the Boston Atlas. Though the agitation of the question at this time in any manner that would distract (he party or impair the efficiency of the present administration is deprecated, yet the Atlas thus expresses its own opinion regarding the nomination. "We have noticed that the Whigs of Pennsylvania, Indiana, Michigan, and, to a great extent, of New York, Ohio, Maine, New Hampshire, and Vermont, have already broken ground in favor of General Winfield Scott, subject to the decision of a Whig National Convention; and we have no doubt that if the question was put how to the Whigs of those States, a very large majority would prefer him as a candidate to any other man. Instead of this .preference being the work of political wire-pullers, or cliq...

Importation of Foreign Convicts. A few days since an Englishman named William Wiseman, was arrested hi N. York, and when taken before Justice McGratb, considerable sympathy was excited in his behalf, from the fact of his being to all appearances deaf and dumb; all that could be got out of him in reply to questions put to him, were mysterious head-shakes, gesticulations and unintelligible gutterals.- Justice McGrath, however, who is " too old a bird to be caught by chaff," suspected that he could use his tongue upon occasion, and by adroit questioning and a little generalship, soon succeeded in making Mr. Dumby, find the use of his auriculars and tongue. He then confessed that he had been transported to this country by the English authorityfor larceny. The New York Day Book, commenting upon this, says it is not the first case of the kind that has come to its knowledge: It is in fact a common thing, and every ship that arrives at our ports contains more or less of these transp...

Veto Messaco. The following message from the Governor was received on the 14lh instant, containing, his objections to the Judicial district bill.

In the judicial history of Pennsylvania it never has been considered essential to select g...

Easter and Lent. There are many who have no definite idea of these Catholic customs. The Washington correspondent, of the, New York Journal of Commerce furnishes some interesting information on the subject, in the annexed letter:— i •' This is Easter.Tuesday, and the Easter holidays are over—Easter which has been a holiday with Pagans,: and is so still with some denominations of Christians, r We have, hereabouts, many of the old customs of Easter, which have .been handed down from generations past, and from sources lost in tho obscurity of tradition. The Catholics were, in former%imes, the prevailing denomination tin Maryland, and the Protestant Episcopalians were "the popular religionists in Virginia. In each they were the prevailing, and in some sense the" established denomination, until towards the close of the last century ; and they still flourish. The Eastern customs prevail here, perhapst to a greater exlent than elsewhere in the Union. The slaves have, to this day,a ...

Earthquakes —Dreadful Loss of Life. Our files by the America jnforms us that a succession of earthquakes'have been felt at Macri,^ town of Natolia, in Asiatic Turkey, and at Samsoon, a sea-port in the Black Sea, within the same Province, and at the island of Rhodes, situate at the entrance of the Gulf of Macri. At the first mentioned place they were attended with great destruction to human life and property. The whole of the houses and stores lately erected in the town were levelled lo the ground, fissures were formed- in the streets, from which bituminous vapors exude continually, almost suffocating the inhabi tants. The neigboring town of Levissey, which contained 1500 houses, has not one left standing, and no less than 600 human beings are supposed to be under the ruins. Other villages in the vicinity have suffered the same fate. At Rhodes, the upper part of the castle, which is at the entrance of the town, fell with an awful crash, overwhelming (he offices of the Austria...
