I do not dispute the length of time you have followed ihe plow, but you have never got up io it yet. You don't know how lo plow. "Sir, do you mean' 10 insult me T" Not at all; I only, meant' 10 assure you of the fact. ' This is a specimen of a conversation wi:h an old farmer, not a great way from New York, who felt insulted because we told him lhat he did not know how to plow. Let us see if he did. He was at norjf upon a piece of ground that might be (ermed sandy loam, though it was once a clayey loam, but nearly all the clay had been washed out of it, because it never had been plowed more than four or five inches deep in the world, and was bedded upon a sub-soil of almost pure, clay, into which a sub-soil plow bad uever entered, and which was never turned u...

HISTORICAL SKETCH Dcstritctiou of the Inquisition in Spain. In 1809, Col. Lohmanowsky was allached to that part of Napoleon 's army which was stationed in Madrid. "While in this city," said Col. L. " I used to speak freely among the people about the priests and Jesuits, and of the luquisilion." It had been decreed by the Emperor Napoleon that the Inquisition and Monasteries should be suppressed; but the decree, like 6ome of the laws enacted in ihis country, was not yet executed.

Force of Imagination.—-A young lad, son of Mr. William Booth, resident or CoVinglor), was bitten in Ihe leg about eight weeks since by a dog. Jthe.wound was,but slight and nothing more ..was thought of il, until after 4he recent mefancholy case of hydrophobia in that city. The circumstances connected with that event made so great an impression, upon the mind of the young boy that he finally fancied himself infected with the horrid J malady, and so on Wednesday last he became so impressed with the belief (hat he was then suffering from its effects. Perfectly reasonable, his friends endeavored to convince him, of his delusion, but in vain. Medical assistance was called in, and a quantity of blood taken from him, aAer which opiates were administered, and he slept .for nearly ten hours. W hen he awoke he called for water, of which he drank profusely, , nppareody:forgetful , of jlbo, night-mar^ . which had previously haunted: him.

THE PEOPLE ON NEBRASKA Picked up for (Ac Agitator. BY PASTE SOI8SOES, ESQ. The Louisville Journal says:—The Nebraska ' law has no strength ia Indiana. A few Democrats in that State pretend to be in favor of it, but they are only office-holders, * office-i seekers, and the obsequious followers of officeholders and office-seekers. A large majority of Indiana is against, the law. We have already referred to several Democratic anti-Nebraska meetings in Indiana that rebuked the Democratic State Convention. The editor of the Evansville Journal says that he has nol heard of the first successful Democratic Nebraska meeting in the State. He says :—" The Nebraska meeting at Lafay ette voted down Nebraska resolutions; and at Indianapolis none were offered because it was known they were to bo «o\«4-down there. Nowhere in the Slate has the party been able to get up an out-and-out Nebraska meeting." The editor makes mention of several large Democratic and anti-Nebraska meetings that have ju...
