'I mmmm 4 t I i f DrsTmoTixo Geah Ixkects. A correspond ent of the American Farmers' Magazine as serts that the weevil, midge, Hessian fly and rniit may ho exterminated from wheat by pre paring it for sowing, as follows: Wash the wheat thoroaghly in several waters in a tub, stirring it well until the water runs off clear. After this take two quarts of caustic lime to every bushel of grain, and mix it well with the wet whoat in the tub. The amonnt of water in the tub should just cover the grain, which must be left to soak for twelve hours. This lime lye kills all the seeds of the insects, and the wheat is then rendered fit for sowing by turning it over among dry wood ashes on the barn floor, and using a pound of the flour of sulphur to each bushel. It is stated that the sulphur protects the grain from the attacks of vermin, while the alkali dissolves the insect ova in the seed. Wheat thus prepared has yielded large crops in 2.ew England. We lave seen this grain prepared for sowing bv...

The art of living is beyond all question, one of the most important subjects that could bo submitted to the human mind. Too little at tention is paid to it, especially in the United States not only in eating too often and too much, but as regards the preparation of food. Nor do we expect that a reform will soon be - effected in this particular ; for we are well s- ware that reformers receive, as a general thing. but poor treatment at the hands of the public in this "fast" age. At the risk, however, of being called an intermeddler and a busy-body, we intend grumbling a little, if you choose so to call it, about a grievous, or, perhaps, more properly speaking, a greasy wrong, which we as a people are laboring under. This "uni versal YanWee .nation' of ours is, we know considered a rather slippery affair ; but if there is any truth in the aphorism, vie...

Creeping, creeping through the branches, Whispering 'mong the maples green, , On the rocky ledge it glances, Clothes the birch in silver sheen. Idling, idling near the fountain, Tossing up the snowy spray, Bashing wild'y to the mountain, Shrieking round the granite gray. Ling'ring, ling'ring 'long the river, Dancingneath the elm-shade, Making all the long reeds quiver, Waving willows in the glade. Sweeping, sweeping o'er the smooth lake-; See the waves begin to swell ; ( Passing on from off its surface, Bending hazels in the dell. Away, away upon...

We bear a great many conjectures as to the probable effect;" of the recent victory of the i'eoole's Partv in Pennsylvania. Some con tend that no permanent good to the party will result irom it ; that it is but a transitory vic tory a brief interlude in the success of Loco- focoisni a trifling reverse which will be fol lowed speedily by a re-action that will again throw us in the shade. For our own part, we entertain no such idea. The contest was a calm, dispassionate one no extraordinary ex citement was manifested no sudden efferves cence of public feeling was witnessed ; and bence we regard the victory as a salutary, ef fective triumph of the people, which is the re sult of due consideration and thoughtful con viction on their part. James Buchanan was elected because the masses in 1800 were made to believe that he would faithfully carry out certain principles. This he n...

And o'er her pulseless bosom strewn Are flowers, pure and white ; And the hands are meekly folded, And the eyes are closed in night.
