On the o e-ing of the Court, Judge Dayton directed the _flerk not to call the Jury, deciding at the same time not.tokhold the Court in conseqence of an informality, or rather a material error of theC'lerk, in giving but five instead of six days notice of the drawing of the Jury forwthe term.

Ikat .House would lc mt our service." Heuce the notice in the Herald, by the Virginia g Brethren, and hence mine appended to it v as explanatory of the change in the H ouse, , for the meeting of the Southern Conven- r tion. I am myself fully satisfied, that the Pas- s tor and the members of the Sharpe-street - Baptist Church, have no sympathies with the Abolitionists, and that their declining to allow the Southern Delegation the use of their House arose from no predeliction for r the spirit or conduct of the Abolitionists, t but solely from a desire to avoid any mea- t sure, that might seem to 'wear the appear cnce of placing themselves in opposition to the spirit of harmony and brotherly love, set forth in their letter to the Delegates of t the Convention.

- Jgrwnlteral. From Ie Indiana Farmer. VEGETATION OF SEEDS. Among the important questions which interest the gardener, is that which relates to the proper time for putting his seeds in to the ground. It is well known that dif ferent seeds require very dif'erent temper atures to effect their germination; and that some plants flourish where others would speedily perish. While the rein-deer moss thrives best on the snow-capped mountains of Norway, other plants are found spread ing themselves over the burning kurface of the island of Tanna. Familiar as thise truths are, I believe no experiments have been heretofore made to ascertain the precise temperature most favorable to the germination of different seeds. To give a staring point to this question. and to enlist others in the investi gation, I proffer the subjoined table for publication. It is the result of numerous experiments which I made in 1839 & 1840. My object was to determine what temper ature at noon, was the most congenia...

irni THE FUTURE. BY ELIZA COOK. It was good, it was kind, in the Wise One above, To fling Destiney's veil o'er the face of our years, That we dread. not the' blow that shall strike at our love, And expect not the beams that shall dry up-our tears. Did we know that the voices now gentle and bland, Will forego the fond word and the whis pering tone; Did we know that the eager and warm pressing hand Will be joyfully forward in "casting the stone ;" Did we know the affection engrossing our soul Will end, as it oft does, in madness and pain; That the passioned breast will but hazard its rest, And be wrecked on the shore it is pant ing to gain. Oh! did we but know of the shadows so nigh, The world would indeed be a prison of gloom: All lgbt would he quenched in youth's eloquent eye. And the prayer lisping infant would ask for the tomb. For if Hope bo a star that would lead us astray, And " deceiveth the heart," as the aged ones preach; Yet 'twas mercy that gave it to beacon our way, Thoug...

Jiscelaneous. From the Charleston Mercury. THE COTTON CROP. We gave it as our opinion on the 1st of March, that the falling off in the crop lr the latter part of the year, would .be great er in proportion than for the preceding five months, and on this we based a calcu lation that the present crop would not ex. ceed 1,600,000 bales. Tho receipts for the month of March indicate that it will fall short of that. And nothing is more certain now, than that the deficiency is general, although more oppressively great in South Carolina and Georgia, than in the South vest. On the first of March the excess of the last, over the present crop, was as we stated, something more than 200,000 bales. The following is a table of receipts of Cotton at the principal Southern ports at datcs near the first of April. 1840-1 1839-40 N.

LATEST FROM ENGLAND. [BY THE STEAMER ACADIA.) The English papers received by the A cadia, does not contain so much talk of war, as those which were received by the Queen, but, they still appear to be dissa tisfied with the McLeod proceedings, and make hard threats, in case he should be executed. We extract the following items from the New York and Charleston papers: "The arrival of the packet ship Eng land, on the 10th of March, and that of the steam packet Columbia on the 16th, re vived the alarm and angry excitement oc casioned by the report of Mr. Pickens ear lier in the month. The former carried out the proceedings in Congress relative to fortifications and other preparations for war, and those of the Maine Legislature on the subject of the boundary; among the news by the latter was the letter of Angus -M'Leod, denying his brother's presence at the affair of the Caroline, which the rabid journals of course laid hold of as disposing ofthe whole question,taking M'Leod away from th...
