All that can ho said in favor of the step
then taken 1 y our forefathers has been said
long- ajo. It is doubtful whether a new
idea cr a new word can be added to the pan
ygrrics made by thousands of orators who
i.ave thrown, with hands full, flowers cf
eloquence on the document.
Why ii it, then, that every year, on the
broad surface of the United States, from
the shores of the Atlantic to those of the
Pacific, and from the borders of Canada
to the Gulf of Mexico, and,, in fact, all
over the world, Americans meet to cele
brated the anniversary of that Declara
tion. Is it not because that immortal date
he Fonrihif Julv fills all Amprimii
hearu .Y.ilhtfeulitiss. of . irratitude aad
'h-inkfuiiness with feelings t;imilar,to
those v. hich r;;al:e us hail with joy every
day the, return of the sun?
Is it not because the American people
are every year more convinced of the
wisdom that prompted the signers cf the
Declaration of Independence?
Because ii is the life and soul of our
institutitns the pride of our Republic
the very ess' nee of our Governaicnt? Is
it not because to the Declaration of Inde
pendence we ctYC the free exercise of
our liberties, the enjoyment of life, the
prosperiiy t.f the naticn, and the bright
cf our future ?
L"i.k into the history of nation?, and
you wiil rot find a ncre glorious date
than our Fourth of Julv, or more rreat
ju incij lcs than those set forth in the Dec
laration of Independence.
Whati.-vcr may be tin ir political opin
ion?, no Ami-rican will deny them. What
ever n.ny be the political troubles agi
tating r.s howe-or selfish and sectional,
feelings fostorrd by ambitious politicians
seem to be, prcvailug over the diilerent
portions of the country, we all assemble
together on the Fourth of July, for it is
refreshing to look"! ack npon our history
lo the time of the Revolu.ion. .- , !
There we see in living characters the
brightness cf that united . feeling which
should be our constant aire 10 chepisJh
"tVc do not allow many causes to come
between tis ana our nffect!on;5 for tLe
descendents of such patriot as, Washing

We speak with equal pride of the gal
lantry of Northern and Southern soldiers
who composed the freezing and bleeding
armv of the Delaware, or the fortitude
of Marion find his men in the gloomy
swamps of the South.
It was one united throb of the great
spirit of the nation that declared it free
and independent, and every Fourth of
July, a unite! feeling bless it in this, its
hour of prosperity.
Dotted over the broad surface of the
land, extending along the sea coast from
the forests of Main to those of Georgia,
are spots which mark the battle grounds
of the War of Independence when nor
thern and southern I rothcrs fell side Ly

tions of the country proclaim to the world
that whatever may be their divisions

they would know no North no South, no
East no West, but stand united as ona

If anv doubt could lehad that such j

arresting and examining vessels carrying
the American flag,
news of which
has aroused "he national temper almost to

the Adminis'ration and both Houses of
Congress, ardthe public indignation that
those outrages have aroused, not only on

the Fourth of Jul-. We love it because
it is a nationil day. On that day we love
to recapitulate the progress we have made
we as a nation our progress Ja extent 01
territory, in glory, in wealth and in pow
er. We like to count the years cf our
existence. We like to look at the past,
to refiect on the present, and to think of
the future. We like to look back eighty
two years ago. when the thirteen small
colonies, thir.ly settled had the bravery to
proclaim and fight for their Indepen
dence, fully awr. re that they had to con
quer or die. They did conquer and tlie
reward was :qual to their resolution. We
like to glanc? at the present and compare
with the position we had m G.
Then a union of thirteen States was
formed ; to-day the United States coin
rose thirty-two members. In a few years
when the Territories now existing will
I e added to the Union, the number will
swell up to f :rty States three times the
original anic tint.
Our population is now ten times ns
large as it was in 1776; and "that large
then unknown region west of the Alle
gheny's, is no more a desert, but ihe gar.
den of the Union.
The flag of our countrythen consider
ed an emblem of rebellion is row hon
ored, respected everywhere, and for the
oppressed people of all regions, is a sym
bol of independence and liberty.
We like to think of4 the future; and
who can foretell the destiny of this na
tion? Who can find limit? to our pro
gress nen will we stop ,, rc.nerr

no can say wnere me Dounas or mis
country will be fifty years from now
what part of the American Continent will
be inaccessible to our Republican insti
tutions, and where on its surface will not
our beloved flag float? All questions that
time alone can answer. But from the
past and the present we may judge the
future. Since the Declaration of Inde
pendence our past has been glorious, our
present is glorious, and our future will be
No Use for Trousers-
On the morning of the meteoric show
ers in 1S33, old Peyton Roberts, who in
tended making an early start to his work
got up in the midst of the display. On
going to his door, he saw with amaze
ment, the sky lighted up with the falling
meteors, and he concluded at once that
the world was on Lrer and that the day
cf judgment had come,
t lie stood for a moment gazing in ter
rcr at the scene, aud then with a yell of
horror sprang out of the door into the
yard, right into the midst of the falling
stars, and here, in his efTorts to dodge
them, he commenced a series of ground
and lofty tumbling, that would have done
honor to a rope-dancer. His wife being
awakened in the meantime, and seeing
old Peyton jumping and skipping about
the yard, called out to him to know what
in the name '0 sense he was doin' out
thar" uanciir round without his clothes.
But Peyton heard not ; the judgement,
and long back account he would have to
settle, made him heedless of all terres
trial things, and his wife, by this time
becoming alarmed at his behavior, sprang
out of bed, and running to the door, she
shrieked out at the top of her lungs
'Peyton, I say Peyton, what do you
mean, jumpin' out thar? Come in and
put on your trousers."'
Old Peyton, whose fears had near over
powered him, faintly answered, as he
fell sprawling to the earth
''Trousers, Peggy, what's the use 'o
trousers when the world's afire !"

The word Creole.
Col. Williams a gallant officer of New
Orleans, tells the following capital story
The Colonel was on a visit to the north,
and at a large dinner party at Lancastsr,
Pennsylvania. He was almost a strang
er to the party, both ladies and gentle
men, but his agreeable manners secured
him a home reception, and he was quite
at case among his new acquaintance.
"At dinner," says the Colonel, "I was
seated opposite a young and very accom
plished lady, who remarked, in the con
v rsation, "Surelv, sir, you cannot have
resided long at the South, your complex
ion is so very fair ?" "Yes," I replied,
"I am a Creole of Louisiana. Instant
ly every cne around me was startled, the
conversation Lagged, and all eyes were
turned upon poor me, utterly unconscious
of having said or done anything to at
tract so much attention. 1 knew not
what to make of it, till the lady remark
ed again, with a long breath, "Well, I
decl-.re I beg your pardon, sir, but I
would certainly have tnkci you for a
white man!" My face burned like fire,
and for a moment I was silent in my con
fusion ; but, recovering myself, I asked
the young lady what she supposed that
the word "Creole mcantf "Why it
I means black or yellow, sir, I don't know
which, and it don't make much differ
ence." I then explained to her and the
company, greatly to their relief, that
creole means native, and has no reference
to color or race ; that creole horses and
creele cows are as commonly spoken of
as creole men, and that I was quite to
"to the manor born."
Tlie London Times.
Mr. John Walter, M. P. for the bor
ough of Nottingham, is principal proprie
tor of the Times newspaper, holding 10
shares out of the twenty-four into which
that publication is divided. The publish
er who is responsible for all libels, &c,
has one share; Mr. John De-lane, the
editor, has one share, and Mrs. Carden,
mother of Sir Robert Carden, the pres
ent Lord Mayor of London, has three
shares. It is estimated that each propri
etary share is worth over 810,000 per
annum, making the agreeable sum of
S240.000 to S2GO,000 per annnmoutof
the shares. Mr. Waltar's individual re
ceipts from this source may be averaged
at some $200,000 a year.
Cost of a Modern Bell.
A matter of fact London Cockney , who
attended a ball, thus describes the belle
of the. evening. What a clerk for the
committee of "Ways and Means" he
would make :
"I saw her dancing in the hall. Around
her snowy brow were set 824,440 ; such
would have been the answer of any jew
eler to the question, "What are those di
monds?" With the gentle undulation of
her bosom rose and fellexactly SI, 164
and eighteen cents. The sum bore the
guise of broach, of gold and pnarQfl.--
Her fairy form was invested in fifty dollars
represented by a slip of black satin and
this was overlaid by one hundred and fif
ty dollars more, in two skirts of white
lace tastefully down each side of the lat
ter were six half crowns, which so many
bows ot purple ribbon had come to the
lower margin of the one hundred and
fifty skirts were edged with eleven ad
ditional guineas, the value of some eight
yards of silver fringe a quarter of a yard
in depth. Her taper waist, taking zone
and clasp together, I calculated to be con
fined by 150 dollars. Her delicately
rounded arms, the glove of spotless kid
being added to the gold bracelet which
encircled the little wrist, may be said to
have been adorned with one hundred dol
lars; and putting the silk and satin at the
lowest figure, I should say the wore SG6
and 56 cents on her feet. Thus, alto
gether, was this thing of light, this crea
ture of loveliness, arrayed from top to
toe, exclusive of little sundries, in about
The Love Wreath.
I've twined tbre. Love, a fiowery wreath
To bind up-in thy brow,
And with kind words on every loaf,
1 bid it seek thee now.
I've searched the gardens through and throu;'a,
The creen house and tbe dell.
And titled them of half their sweets
For her I loved so well.
I thought at least my pit t would bo
A messenger of love to tl.ee.
Tirst from the pardeti's wreath, I stole,
Sweet (1) ro-e buds, fresh and fair,
And (2) myrtle spritrs, because the friend
1 cherished, was not there.
And with the blue (3) forset-mc-not,
I twined a () bay leaf green.
While (5) crocus flowers and (ii) violets
Came peepins up between ;
And (7) pinks and (S) pansies blended there
With (it) amaranths more rich and rare.
The (10) star of rieloleliem r.ext I twined
Aiicni; the blo-miiiij; thronp,
Calm thoughts of him of whom they breathed,
Stealmp my heart abii'4
And the sweet (11) pos(-sion flower was tberc,
And leanini; on its cheek
Lay tbe i ile (Ii) sii"w-ball like a child,
All trustingly and meek .
And from each white andsrnceful cup,
Jtethougbt pure prayer seemed gushing up.
And (13) orance flow'rs all while and fair,
And (11) lilies as pure as they.
I've sought with studied crai e and skill.
Within ihe wreath to 'ay.
And young (16) mom rose buds drooped their Leala
So gracefully besido. .
And blushing io gweetly, that I kissed
- The darlings In tnv pride t
npinir my friend would like these best.
And priza them morn tbau all tbe rest.
And (tC) honeysuckles twined their slight
Aud graceful fingers r.'und.
And rosy (17) laurels lovingly
With (IN) jasamines interwound,
Toung (19) daisies own'd the long tringed lash
Of their sweet, starry eyes.
Gazing on all the beauty thcro
As if in glad surpri- c;
I thought how very like thine own,
With love and happiness they shone.
Then take the wreath and bind it love,
Upon thy shining hair.
Among those rich dark curls of thine
That veil thy forehead lair,
And gaze U'oti thy mirrored ace.
And own bow lovelier yet
My gift bath made tl.ee , as it smiles
Among thy curis of jot.

.Management of Plants In Rooms.
The management of plants in rooms is
extremely difficult. This is perhaps the
greatest reason why there are so few
cultivated. Now what is the reason they
cannot be grown ? Why, simply because
those who love flowers, and can afford to
get only as many as will fill a couple of
windows, are ignorant of their cultiva
tion, and also because horticultural writ
ers doi:ot think such a subject w ort
tingvpon.1 W will now say a few words !
on the subject. First, it should be borne
in mind that moist air as almost is essen
tial to plants as water, and that they arc
seriously injured by being forced to in
hale air that is in too dry a state for them.
Plants to be healthy should be frequently
syringed in order to cleanse the leaves
from dust and also to open the stomaia
or breathing pores; when syringing can
not be resorted to, setting them out in the
rain will do, only taking care that it is
not so heavy as to break them ; but by all
means let them have plenty of fresh air
wnen it is prjcticaLIe. Nimout a sui;
ciency of air, plants soon become weak (flruc- or 'en measure) as 1,255 bush
and sickly; their lecves will soon turn ca5- "cilact one-fifth, which w
yellow. 'But, if a little fresh air is giv- f'J -hore, for ai.owance for rounding
en them every day when the temperature
is not too cold, they will grow nearly as
well in a room as in a greenhouse. An
other reason why plants in roonn nrc un
healthy is, that they are watered in a
very irregular manner; sometimes they
are allowed to be so long without water,
that the mould is so dry that it will crum
ble under tne pressure of the fingers, and
the spongiolesof the root are quite with
ered. This is perhaps noticed by some
one, and it is then thought that the plants
need water; a quantity is then given!
them, cold lrom the pump, though they
have probably been standing in a tem
perature of from sixty to seventy degrees;
such a process is very hurtful to plants
of even the most hardy r.ature, and if
delicate, they are not infrequently killed
outright ; the reverse of this should be the
case. The plants should never become
so dry as to have the mould in a crum
bling state; if such a circumstance should
occur, they ought to be well watered with
water of the tame temperature of the
room. If the pots should stand in sau
cers it would be well to fill the saucers
with water, in crdr that evrrr mrt of
the roots mav imbibe some bent-fit from !

the moisture. When this has stood about :
half an hour, the not should be lifted out :
and the water thrown away, as nothing i
injures ihe plants so much as stagnant
water being left around them. Another
fault is, to put the plants in toolarcre pots
which always has a bad effect. If the soil
is good and not over watered, the plants
will indeed grow rapidly, but will produce
leaves and branches instead of dowers, i
The soil should always be in such a state j
as to admit air to the roots; at the same j
time, frequently re-potting is often neces
sary to keep the plants in a compact hab
it of growth, and also to prevent them
from being drawn up. The way to as
certain this is, by turning the plants out
of the pot with the ball attached, and if
you find the roots on the outside of the
ball, transfer it to a larger pot, but only
one size larger than the former. Ily per
severing in this method of treatment, a
plant may be grown to a large size and
made to produce flowers in great abun-
The best soil for plants in pots is a mix
ture of hog earth and vegetable manure,
finely pulverized. Cover the bottom of
the pot with small pieces of broken pots
in order to insure perfect drainage. The
roots should then be examined, and if any
parts of them are found to be diseased
they should be cut oil ; be sure and al
ways use a sharp knife, as a dull one man
gles or bruises them ; put a little e arth in
the bottom over the posthords place the
plant in the center, so that the collars of
: the plant are near the rim of the pot; the
new earth is Uien put m and tne pot slight
ly shaken to settle the earth about the
roots, ami then slightly watered and set
aside in the shade lor tne rest of the day.
1 Ianls should never oe re-potted wnne in
flower. The best time is, when they are
growing, before the flower buds begin to
swell. They should be allowed to re -
main until the llowcrinrr season is com-
1 pletely over
Sometimes the soil in the
pot looks black and covered with moss,
owing to an excess cf moisture or insuf-
ficient drainage. When this is the case,
the plants should be turned out of the pot
and the black and sodden earth shaken
from the roots, which should be cut and
all decayed parts removed ; it should then
be re-potted in another pot of the same
or nearly the same size. Thus treated,
and moderately but regularly watered,
the plant will soon recover, and if judici
ously pruned, if it has become elongated
or drawn up, it will become handsome
j and well grown. Turn the plants to ti

- Measuring Cera in a Crib.
In the Cultivator for January, p 13, I
find an article from "W. H. C," on meas
uring com in the crib. Said article was
written to show that a rule which tho
writer had seen in the Saturday Even
ing Po;t wis r.ct correct. The rule was
to multiply the cubic feet contents of the
crib by four and a half, cr.d cut off the
right hand figure, which would give" tho
bushels of shelled corn.
As I have seen tlie above r-ua credited
t0,th; rr?irie Farmer, I conclude it is
calculated more particularly for the west,
where they reckon two lush-: Is cf shelled
com for every three cf car?. The rule
is certainly not correct when it requires 2
budiels cf ears for 1 of shelled corn. Nor
is the rule given by your correspondent
correct, by a long way, as 1 think I shall
show. He gives tho true number of
bushels a crib would contain, of struck
measure ; but he seems to have lost sight
of the fact that in the State of New
York, and further east, wa have to givo

the iiali LuUicI, and we have 1,02S,(
bushel of ears, or-311,1 bushels shelled
corn; ;51-i.3 then, would be very near the
corn in a
crib of the dimensions he gives, from the
kind of corn we rinse here. The reason
will be seen by multiplying the cubic foot
(1,000) by the number of inches in a
cubi" L-ot (1,72?) zrA dividing by tho
number i,f incites in a bu-hel. (2,LS0.42)
which give' the contents, (1,2S.5.7 ; struck

for rounding the measure, and you bnvo
the number of bu.-hel of ears (1,02S.G)

of bushels shelled com.
The rule laid down by W. II. C. is, to
deduct on fifth from ihe cubic feet con
tents cf the crib. To us? the example
he gives: Thus Z0 by 20 1 y S equals
1.GU0 feet deduct l-o and we have 1 ,
2S0 bushels cars.
Ly the rule given in the Tost to multi
ply the cubic feet contents by 4 and a half

by 2 equals l.VO fnir-helj of ecrs. or 540

much, though this come much nearer
than the rule given by the Tost or by W.
II. C. .
Now. to rccnpitt-.i."te. we hr.ve fir?t.

rounding measure, 514.3 bushels ; by W.
il. C.'s rub-. 010 bushels; ly the rule in
the Post, 720 lu.-hels; reducing the lat
ter to our standard, 50 bushels.
Here you perceive is a wide differ
ence. Tlie first and last being the near
est to each ether, and the firt; I think,
nearest of any to the truth.
Now, wore I to give a rule that would
be simple and at the same time nearly
correct, it would be nearly as follows :
