On the first page will be found an ex
cell ent article, "Selection of Trees Plan-
tng," to which we call attention. Too
few people, even those who are fond cf
fruit, shade, Cowers cr shrubbery, know
when or how to plant a tree cr shrub.
We may safely say that all depend cn
planting. The man who digs a common
post-hole, and crowds the roots of a tree
cr shrub into it, commits suicide! and yet
the majority cf people plant just in that
way. The hole should, in all cases, be
dng deep and wide, that loose dirt may
be thrown into the bottom to raise the
plant to the proper height, and let every
fiber have its natural position, and plen-
ty cf loose soil in which to take root.

ScTerc Censnre Seward ont&c Or
Senator Seward cf New York, in the
few remarks which he made cn the Ore
renbm, when it passed the Senate, said:
ready, willing, desirous to come in. They
have made a constitution which is accep
table to themselves, and a const: to ticn
which, however it may be criticised
here, after all complies substantially with
every requirement which the Congress cf
the United States, cr any considerable
portion cf either House cf Congress, ha3
ever insisted cn in regard to any State.
It seems to me, therefore, to be trifling
with the State cf Oregon, trifling with
the people cf that community, and to be
unnecessary, and calculated to prodcice an
unfavorable impression cn the public mind
in regard to the consistency cf the poli
cy which we pursue in admitting States
into the Union, to delay cr deny this ap
plication. Fcr one. sir, I think the soon
er a Territory emerges from its provin
cial condition the better ; the sooner the
people are left to manage their own af
fairs, and are admitted to participation in
the responsibilities cfthe government, the
stronger and more vigorous the States
which these people form will be. 1 trust
therefore, that the question will be taken.
and that the State may be admitted with
out further delay.

who voted against the Oregon bill in the

Good Denocratic Doctrine-
The identity which now exists, in ma
ny respects, between the Democratic
party, as now constituted, and the Whig
party, cannot be better illustrated than
by the following extract from one cf the
letters included in Daniel Webster's pri
vate correspondence, dated
"Senate Chamsii, Jan. 11, 1SOS
"I heartily concur in the resolution of
the House cf Representatives, passed as
early as 2 larch, 1790, at a calm and dis
passionate period in our political history.
That resolution is in the following
"'Pusohed, That Congress have no
authority to interfere in the emanapa
tion cf slaves, or in the treatment cf them
within any of the States: it remaining
with the several States alone to provid
any regulations therein, which humanit
and true policy may require.'
The Democratic party cf the present
day, in proof cf its orthodoxy, has only to
refer to such resolutions as this, drawn up
m tne early days cf the Republic, and
endorsed twenty years ago with the hear
ty concurrence cf the ereat "Defender cf
e Constitution." The doctrine thus
enunciated, has become the rallying cry
cf the Democracy, and its success seems
to involve the stability of the L nicn.
Hon. Joseph Miller.
If the rumors cf the letter writers from
Washington are to be credited, it is the
intention cf the President to appoint
Hem Joseph Miller, 31. C, frcm the
Ross County District, a Judge of the
United States Court for the Territory cf
N ebraska. Should the rumor pruve true
the President will have selected a gentle
man well qualified for the post and a wor
thy and honest man, who will discharge
his duties with ability and integrity. O.
