At the principal point of iupply from this Vicinity, the mammoth mills of Garsed & Bro., atFrankford, Pa., work has just been commenced iy night as well as day. The mill was previously tunning fourteen hours per day. Most of its machinery will now be run without cessation, Sundays only excepted. Within an incredibly brief space of time the mill has produced ma terial for over twenty thousand tents, and still has a heavy task before it. The firm has recently effected an improvement in tent cloths, at in enhanced cost of but three cents per yard, _Ipon the merits of which the War Department, Is now considering.

The Perils of Peaee, The Richmond Dispatch, of November 14, says: De Bow's November Review has an admirable article entitled the " Perils of Peace." The obvious danger of an immense Yankee immigration, ¦which will abolitionize_^the border States at the ballot box, unless such restrictions are placed _iupon the exercise of suffrage as will prevent them from ever having a vote, are painted in letters of •light. We have often referred to this danger as fene which, if not provided against in time, will (lender all the blood and treasure expended in fithe war entirely profitless; The same writer [ also contends that, while our present foreign popmlation, which has proved so gallant and faithful In the Southern cause, should retain the posses-Won of every right which they now have, the Rime privilegeishould not be conferred upon fu-Kre emigrants to'this country! - *

low-Headed Fruit Trees. Iu trimming fruit trees, we should always be careful to secure the trunk from the rays of the.Srimjner _sirn. Solar heat, by beingJong permitted to come in contact with the bark, is said to scald the circulating fluids, audthite cause m_'ariy of the diseases which affect fruit, trees in this climate. The foliage only should be fully exposed to the influences of heat, for that is capable of bearing it unharmed, and even to profit by it, when most intense. It has bee n asserted by distin guished terra-culturists_, that trees which are' permitted to _branch out low—say three or four feet from the ground—are rarely attacked by " firebli'ghtj_,"" frozeri-sap blight;" Waek spots, or bther diseases of the bark ©r limbs. There is, also, another advantage attending thispractiee. The'soil is kept lighter, looser, arid more free _froia weeds, anS there is | no necessity of«mulching.

One Thing and Another. A boy was tempted by some of his companions to pluck* some ripe cherries fr6m'a tree , his father had forbidden him to touch. " You need not be afraid/' said they, " for if your father should: find out you had taken, them, he is so kind he would not hurt you." " That is the very reason," replied the boyj " why I should not touch them. It is true, my father may not hurt me, yet my disobedience, I know, would hurt my father, and that would be worse to'foe than anything else." A little boy had lived for some time with a very _penuridus uncle,'who. 'was_^one day walking out, with the child at his'side, when a friend accosted him, accompanied by a greyhound. The little felldw, never having seen a dog of so slim arid slight a texture, clasped the creature round the neck, _^vith the impassioned cry, " Oh, doggie, doggie! and div ye live wi' your uncle, tae, that you are so thin ?"

—•——¦ _»n Cattle. Cattle of all kinds enjoy themselves and thrive better in ihi fields, at this season, than in close barns, (rood cow yards, facing East or South, with barns or sheds on the North and West, to shelter from storms, are more proper for all kinds of cattle, till very cold weather comes, than very tight barns. They lie down and they rise with more ease than when tied to staunchions; and their udders are always cleaner when they can choose their own beds. But above all other considerations of profit, let cattle of all ages and races have a chance to get a good share of the free atmosphere which our Creator, in his wisdom, has supplied to us without stint or measure. No substitute, of man's invention, can be compared with the fresh breezes which are continually moving around our planet. And when man attempts to make improvements on the atmosphere, " he soars above his reach,"and soon finds that he was never required to meddle with elements already made perfect for his...
