The farmers are staying at home, taking advantage of this fine weather a good sign of plen ty to come. Still, our town is improv ing considerably in the repair of old, and erection of new buildings. The public square will soon be the only op probrium upon the task of our citizens. It needs a storm, or some other neceS' sitv, to inspire improvement. There are several old piles on the square that ought to be removed and rebuilt. Ignoring the Question. The Dem ocrats say that the Americans do not mention the word slavery in their platform, and thereby practically ig nore the question. Now, it will be borne in mind that they also say that the Nebraska and Kansas bill is their test of soundnes, which does not have the word in it, either.

Hut there is a la bor of the head as well as the hand;), which tree culture emphatically wants. The cultivator should know what is the specific food to form woody libre, foliage, or fruit. Second, what disease the tree is subject to, and what insects are prejudicial to its healthy development. Without this knowl edge, neither good trees nor good soil will produce good fruit for successive years. The favorite soil for the ap ple, is a calcareous loam, and where t!ii:s does not abound, the cultivator may supply an artificial loam of lime and muck. A healthy, well fed tree, will resist the attacks of insects, like a healthy well fed animal: therefore, when applying preventives and remc dies for insect depredation, apply at the same time such nourishing food to the roo...
