A Theatrical Incident.
Some years ago the manager of a 'well
regulated theater,' somewhere along the
line of the Erie Canal, engaged a good
looking and brisk young lady as a super

canal boat; a fid that s.;Le was wry anx
ims to conceal. She had evinced much
ability in mastering the details of her
newly chosen profession, and soon exhib
ited more than an ordinary degree of comic
talent. She was duly promoted and in
time became a general favorite with both
manager and public.
One night, when she was announced to
appear in a favorite part, a couple of boat
men found their , way into the pit, near
the foot lights, particularly anxious to see
the new famous commedian. The house
was crowded, and after the subsidence of
the general applause'which greeted her
appearance, one of the boatmen slapped
his companion on the shoulder and with
an emphatic expletive exclaimed so loud
as to be heard over the house:
"Hill, I know that gal !"
"Pshaw," said Kill, "dry up."
"Rut I'm d d if I don't now, Kill
ifs Sal Flukins as sure you!re born.
She's old Flukin's daughter that used to
run the Injured Polly, and .she used to
sail .with hinu'?
"Tom,,: said Bill, you're a fool," and if
ycu don't stop your infernal clack, you'll
get put cul. Sal Flukins! You know a
sijjht if you think that's her!:'
Tom was silenced but not convinced,
lie watched the actress in all her mo
tions with intense interest; and ere long
"I tell you, Kill, that's her I know it
is. You can't fool me I know her too
Kill, who was a good deal interested
in the play, was out of all patience at
this persistent interruption on the part of
Tom. He gave him a tremendous nudge
in the ribs with his elbow, as an emphatic
hint to keep quiet.
Tom, without minding the admonition,
"Ycu just wait I'll fix her, keep vour
eyes on "i." 1 "
Sure enough he did fix hpr. Watch
ing his opportunity when the actress was
deeply absorbed in her fart, he sung out
in a voice which rang through the galle
ries, "Low Bridge !"
From the force of habit the actress im
mediately and involuntarily ducked her
head to avoid the anticipated collision.
Down came the house with a thunder cf
applause at this palpable hit, high above
which Tom's voice could be heard, as he
returned Kill's punch in his rib3 with in
terest ' '

Retiring from Rnsiness.
How many strive to get rich in order
to retire from business as though hap
piness consisted in doing nothing. Here
is the true philosophy of the matter from
Reader, though you have all the wealth
of the Indies, you have no more right
to retire from your position cf active em
ployment than your Maker, whose riches
are all creation. Your obligation to la
bor for the good of others increases in
proportion to your power. In your power
there is wealth beyond human computa
tion. If you, by your gains in a single
year, can'found an asylum, furnish a libra-
ry, endow a college or ouiia a cnurcn,
how vast is your responsibility. Now,
if r-pr. vou are called upon to labor. If
the Rothchilds would consecrate their an
nual income, only, to bless and elevate
their fellow-men, they would, by accla
mation, command a crown, surpassing in
jewelled splendor any the world ever saw.
Every man, be he prince or peasant,
Christian cr not, ought to do all he can
for his neighborhood, Lis country or the
world; nl rinrnrcr in he :niverp 3r
rs-er absolve Jhiin from this obligation.
ThiTC is no exemption, thou -lazy idler,
living upon God's bounty, from this heav
enly requirement ; shrink from it and thy
riches shall be a canker and a moth to
thee; and all thy gold, in its influence
upon thy happiness, shall turn into
Rev. Henry Ward Beecher says :
"God is the most wonderous worker in
the universe facile, sleepless, untiring;
but men, instead of counting it a joy to
j labor, are always striving to evade what
to ihem is a burde'i, ana look torwarti
with delight to the time when they can
"retire." As a worm feeding upon mul
berry leaves, might say : "How glad I
shall be when I am fat ejiough to roll my
self up into a cocoon!" so they eat the
leaves of duty, and long for no higher joy
than this silk-worm happiness. And thus
we have cocoon merchants, cocoon law
yers, cocoon ministers, cocoon everything.
The worm's cocoon is worth un.vinding,
but these men are spoilt i: does not pay
to unthread them."
Mrs. Smith, my pa wants to know if
he may lend himself to your axe a little
while. He'd allers rather lend than bor
row. Many a man's vices have at first been
nothing worse than good qualities.
Second thoughts are the adopted chil
dren of experience.
Wants of the West.
Western Iowa and Nebraska, in beau
ty and fertility is unsurpassed. Millions
of acres -of land, as fertile as ever the
sun shone upon, now lie uncultivated,
awaiting the plow, the harrow and the
scythe, of the sturdy emigrant. No
doubt, beneath the surface. m-sy be found
abundance of coal, and rrii'V'It of great
eastern continent can find homes where
ordinary industry will insure abundance.
We want emigrants. Let them come by
thousands. There is room for all. '
YVe designed saying a few words, how
ever, of the particular kind of emigra
tion needed 'most of the time.
1st. We need farmers men of inteli
gence, experience and capital men de
voted to their calling, and who have, the
means to open up farms that will serve
as models for those who follow after them
and at the same time furnish our towns
with all the luxuries of the older States,
such as vegetables, fruits, flowers, ani
mals of improved breeds,' &.c.
2d. We need capitalists not " paper
town speculators, or wildcat bankers, but
men of substantial wealth, who are wil
ling to employ their means profitably, in
aiding the poor but industrious mechanic,
manufacturer and farmer, in developing
the resources of the country, and laying
the foundations of future fortunes. At
present, this portion of the west is mis
erably destitute of money. Business is
almost entirely suspended ;.n some places
for" the want of a circulating medium.
True, we have plenty to eat, drink and
wear, and can live independently, if not
another dollar should ever find its way
to this region. We are nat beggars by
any means. We can pay liberally for the
use of every dollar; at the same time,
it would prove a very great convenience,
if we could tnly have the use it of for a
short time. - .

The following from the Buffalo Express

"Matrimony," is a kind of natural result
Not long since the worthy pastor of one
of our city churches, who combines di
vinity and "wit in a woof" as bright and
right as a "cloth of gold," was called upon
one evening by a nameless gentleman,
and informed that his services would be
required at an early hour next morning,
for a peculiar and delightful duty, and
took his leavV.
Bright and early the reverend gentle
man was ready and waiting, when a car
riage was driven up by a 'sorrel' boy with
freckled horse, who rang the bell, which
was answered by the dominie in propria
persona. The following dialogue then en

"Well, go and find Mr. -
inquire where I am required."
Off went the boy with his carriage, and
in a short time returned and the conver
sation was renewed.
"Have you found out the place ?"' said
"No, sir, but I've found out what street
he is on; you'd better get in, sir. I can
find it I guess."
And in he got. After riding some dis
tance, the carriage was stopped, the dri
ver got down, opened the door, and with
a most sober countenance said : "There
is a feller a courtin' a gal here, 70U may
stop and try the place.
And the dominie did try it, and found
the precise place his services werj need
ed by two anxious and palpitating hearts,
which he quickly bound together in the
indissoluble bonds of matrimony. After
the services were concluded, tie story
was told, and a happier, jollier lugh has
seldom been heard. -

Farm and Garden.
From the Country Gentleman.
Messrs Editors I noticed an article
in your valuable journal, headed "Early
Cutting of Hay," by J. II. If., of Sene
ca county, New York. He says: "Eve
olM'tVEtl krieTgral Agricultural Papers
articles enjoining farmers to cut their hay
as early as at the t'me it comes out into
blossom; because, it is said, if properly
cured, the hay keeps its beautiful green
color, and the nutritive juices of the plant,
to a much greater degree than if suf
fered to stand until the seeds are form
ed." He says, further, that this may be
true in regard to clover, but he is satis
fied that it is not in regard to timothy and
the other grasses.
Permit me to say, Messrs Editors, that
agriculture has been my vocation for up
wards of half a century, or from my boy
hood, and I esteem it my prerogative to
have at least some experimental knowl
edge of the whys and wherefores of some
things. And now with respect to the
right time, and vice versa, the wrong
time to cut hay. The right time is when
the grass is fully developed ; if cut at an
earlier period it will be found to contain
so much water that the reduction in dry
ing will much disappoint the owner. It
must not be allowed to stand until its seed
are completely formed, much less ripe.

only nutritive elements, it is highly ne
cessary and desirable that these should
be preserved ; and the point of successful
grass cutting is that between the full de-velopcmcnt-
of the plant, and before the
full formation of the seed ; or, in other
w ords, whe n most of the blossoms appear.
Grass should never be left to be cut after
harvest; if it is, it becomes woody, and
therefore unpalatable to all animals, if
of the ruminating species or otherwise.
I have a horse that will make a very
graceful bow when I put before him a
lock of early cut hay. It is true, it was
cured or dried as it thouid l. I presume
the only difficulty in regard to the early
cut hay of friend J. II. II., was that the
ttaiks of the plants were not dried per
fectly. For my own part, I feel justified
in asserting that a ton of timothy hay, cut
and secured at the proper time as it ought
to be, is worth two cut after harvest.

you have few choice varieties oft
either of the above fine flowers, do not
neglect to ; propagate them a store of
such good things, j5 oro. The meth
od to dy it is either by layers, or cut half
way through the under side, just at the
point where, if bent down, it would
touch the ground. The soii should be
stirred up previously, and, if not a sandy
soil, some sand added ; and the layers
when finished to be fastened into the
ground, with one or two inches of soil on
the top. In very dry spells they will re
quire occasionally to be watered. The
other method is by cutting, commonly
called for this class of plants "pipings."
These should be selected with five or six
joints, cut off beneath a joint ; split the
bottom up slightly, trim off a portion of
the leaves, shorten the remainder, and in
sert in sand, under a bell glass, frame,
or other similar contrivance.
Those who have long lanky Gerani

minding that midsummer is the time to
cut them back. Do this freely; that is
back to a few inches of the old growth.
The effect of this is to encourage a quan
tity of new shoots to start out to take the
place of old ones, often more than w e can
well find room to grow. When this is
the case, rub off the weakest, a few at a

the peaches, which are rubbed in it for a
short while, and then washed in clear

be removed, and only a thin skin remain
