Test or Abolitionism,
AU is not gold that shines, and the
loudest mouthed philanthropists and re
formers sometimes cave in when put to
a severe practical test like the following :
l had a brother-in-law," said Mose
Perkins, "who was one of the ravenest,
maddest, reddest-hottest Abolitionists you
ever saw. I liked the pesky critter well
enough, and should have been glad to see
him come to spend a day, fetchin my
sister to see me and my wife, if he hand't
'lowed his tongue to run on so 'bout nig
gers and slavery, and the equality of the
races, and the duty of overthrowing the
the Constitution of the United States, and
a lot of other things, some of which madt!
me mad, and the best part of 'em right
sick. I puzzled my braine a good deal
to think how I could make him shut up
his noisy head 'bout Abolitionism.
"Wall, one time, when brother-in-law
come over to stay, an idea struck me. 1
hired a nigger to help me at haying time.
He was the biggest, strongest nigger you
ever seed. Black ! he was blacker than
a stack of cat?, and jest as shiny as a new
beaver hat. I spoke to him.
"Jake," says I, "when you hear the
breakfast bell ring, don't you say a word,
but come right into the parlor and sit
right down among 'he folks and eat your
breakfast. The nigger's eyes stuck out
of his head about a feet !
You're jokin, massa,' says he.
Jokin, I am sober as a deacon, sez I.
But I shaut have time to wash myself
and change my shirt, sez he.
So much the better,' sez I.
Wall, breakfast come, and so did Jake
and he set down along side my brother-in-law.
He staid, but he didnt say a word.
There wasnt no mistake about it for he
was loud I tell you. There was a fuU
rate chance to talk Abolitionism, but brother-in-law
never opentd his head.
Jake,' sez I. you be on hand at dinner
time, and he was. He bad been working
in die meadow all the forenoon it was
as hot as hickory and bilin-pitch and
but I leave the rest to your imagination.
Wall, in the afternoon brother-in-law
come up to me, madder than a short-tailed
bull in hornet time.
Mose, I want tosppakto you,' said he.
'Sing it out sez I.
'I have but a few words to say, sez he,
but if that nigger comes to the table
agin while I am stoppin here, I'll clear
Jake ate his supper that night in the
kitchen, but from that day to this I never
heard my brother-in-law open his head
about Abolitionism. When the Fugitive
slave Bill was passed, I thought he'd let
out some, but he didnt, for he knovced thai
Jalit was still working on the farm.
The Patent Office having obtained seeds
of the cork tree from Europe, sect several
packages last year to California which
possesses a climate similar to France and
Spain, where it flourishes. These seeds
were planted at Sonora, Cal., and about
87 per cent, of them have come up, and
give promise of becoming stately trees.
The Dubuque Sun says that last week,
Mr. Wilson, of Farley Junction, placed
some sticks besides some stocks of corn
for the purpose of ascertaining how fast
it was growing. In just one week it was
measured, and found to have grown five
feel in that time.
It is good husbandry to plow land that
i$ to be fall plowed, tarty. '
There are no flowers like roses, and do
roses like the perpetuals. One never sees
too many of them, and it is a pity that
every man, who really ' appreciates fine
flowers, should not be the owner of a
whole acre of them ; what a glorious acre
it would be though afield of beauty and
fragrance. Even the choicest of these
roses are now tolerably cheap, and abun
dant in the nurseries, so 'we take it for
granted, that many a reader of the Pra
irie Farmer can, with most pardonable
pride, boast of a few such -gems as Pio
IX., Geant dea Battailes, Hermosa, &c.'
&c. If they received the ' proper atten
tion early in spring they will now be full
of bloom. The Remontant should al
ways have their first crop of buds picked
off as fast as they appear ; if this has
been neglected you will only get a few
scattering blooms during late summer and
autumn. The rose likes a deep, heavy
soil, and high culture, with the exception
of the Noisettes and ether fine wooded
sorts, for which a lighter soil is preferable
Burnt sod forms an excellent fertilizer for
the rose, and pouuded charcoal is also good.
Liquid manure applied just before a rain
will be productive of the happiest results
while leaf mold from the woods is often
one of the handiest and best fertilizers
that can be applied. Stir the surface soil
frequently, and in time of drouth give an
occasional copious watering, taking care
to stir the surface soil next day to keep it
from baking. Keep all the roses picked
off as fast a3 they begin to fade ; they
look unsightly and take just so much
nourishment from the young buds. Some
of the more delicate growers like the
Nbisettes will be much benefitted by being
protected from the hot glare of the midday
sun. If it has no: before been tended to,
there is still time to put down layers, and
such floral treasures are well worth in
creasing; besides, if any of your speci
mens are budded or grafted, it will be
wise to get them on their own roots as
soon as possible. Recollect, that the latest
idea in layering is to notch the upper in
stead of the lower side of the branch, they
are not so apt to break, and a slight twist
to one side leaves the tongue in the right
position. You may increase your favorites
by budding on any thrifty, free growing
fctock. The Mannetti is the best, the
common blush rose will do, and even the
wild wood rose. Select well ripened and
prominent tuds, and dothew:r!c as quick
ly and neatly as you can. Both layering
and budding are simple operations, pleas
ant accomplishments that every body in
the land should understand both in theory
and practice. Prairie Farmer.
Ringing the Grape Vine.
This process we find is obtaining not a
little note among grape growers. A year
ago, a Massachusetts horticulturist detail
ed to us some interesting experiments and
their results. By this process, it is claim
ed, the size and quality of the fruit may
be increased, and the period of its ma
turity hastened. We find in an exchange
the following description of the process :
"A narrow ring of bark is taken from
the bearing stem near its junction with the
main stock. It must be as deep as the
liber, i. e., penetrating the two barks.
The effect is to check the formation of
leaf, and to accelerate the growth and
ripening of the grapes by at least a fort
night. Specimens from vines treated in
this manner have been shown at the ex
hibition in Paris. The fruit was larger
than that cf the unringed branches of the
same vine. This is an interesting ex
periment, and may be tried to an extent
sufficient to gain a practical test without
injuring the plant."
The same thing has been tried with
peach trees with similar results. lb.
Proflts of Bee Keeping.
The following letter from a New York
school teacher to Col. B. P. Johnfon, Sec
retary of the New York State Agricul
tural Society, illustrates how profitable it
is, and how ea:-y too. for a prcfe-sicnal
man, to say nothing of farmers with broad
acres of teeming fields, to indulge in this
kind of husbandry:
"You expressed a wish for a statement
of my success in Bee Culture. I have
been a keeper of bees some fifteen years
or more, my number of hives usually
varying from twenty to fifty. My occu
pation (teaching a small family boarding
school) affords me little leisure to observe
their habits, further than any immediate
pecuniary interest indicates. I have, how
ever, gradually acquired the art of man
aging them to such an extent that my
neighbors, who attribute all success in bee
culture to 'luck,' consider me lucky.
As an example of my success, I give
the following: Iu the spring of 15-58 I
had thirty swarms. The season proved
about a medium one for honey, and the
spring of 1859 found me with the same
number of swarms, and $240.50 received
for honey, wax and bees of the year. I
have never made any close estimate of
the expense of keeping bees, but I can
safely say. that at least S200 of the above
is clear profit more than 6 each, be
sides renewing the ages, as I mainly saved
the new swarxs. To this may properly
be added the amount cf honey consumed
in the family, ofrom sixteen to twenty
persons, where it is on the tea table more
than half the number of days in the year.
"I use the Week's Vermont Hives,
made of pine plank painted wjjite hang
them on frames in the open air. four feet
apart and two from the ground. I mow
full 'crops of grass- under thrm. They
may be said to occupy no room, to require
no feeding, aai pnly occasional attention
of any kind. This can be said of no other
live stock, and yet it is demonstrable that
no other can equal this in profit. The
wonder is that bee3 are not more exten
sively cultivated. The outlay is small ;
the poof man can readily command it.
One-eighth of an acre, in grass, suffices
for ICO hives, and yield no less hay cn
their account. Any person can learn to
attend them, and there is no danger of
overstocking the market with the delicious
product of their industry, one of the great
est luxuries of our. table."

said Mrs. Dean, "and we'll see if it can't

Light of good service was vigorous action,
and consequently went through the house
like a hurricane, pitching the chairs frcm
the walls into the middle of the room,
making tables and ottomans spin as if they
had lost their centre of gravity, tossing
up windows and snipping open blinds,
and then with an energy, equal to the
emergency of an earthquake, proceeded
to set every atom of disturbed dust in
motion, raising a fog that, when settled
an hour after she had finished dusting,
would bronze every article in the room.
Kate folded her hands and leaned against
the mantle, but could not be induced to
sit down, while Mrs. Dean proceeded to
show her the modus operandi cf sweep
ing without raising a dust.
"There, Kate, you see how I do it. I
take short strokes with ray broom I bear
on a little ; and when I have finished my
stroke, I don't flirt my broom up a foot
from the floor, sending all the dirt afly, as
you do see the difference now but I
draw it gently bark and make another
stroke, so. You see it is not as hard
work as your way to sweep the room in
the first place ; and then it h not half the
work to dust afterwards, because dust will
get into all the little cracks and crevices
in the furniture. Those carved roses,
now, on the top of the chairs see how
they look; a flirt of the brush or your
duster will not remove that; it will take
pains and time to clean them. Then it
creeps inside of the clock and nestles it
self in the folds of the curtains, steals
into the bookcase, takes iodiging on the
cornice and sticks to the paper; don't you
seen how much mischief it does ?"
"Iudade, ma'am. I do; and niver a bit
did I think of all that before."
"You see how, it is, Kate ; you only
raise the dust out of the carpet and scatter
it all about, and then with j'our duster you

June 23;h Talking about servants
we saw in one of our city papers the other
day a lugubrious article about the terrible
conduct of. servants, ending in the decla
ration, "that they were our masters,' and
and suggesting the propriety of passing
laws to restrain them; that if they were
impudent or failed to do duty, they should
not collect wages," and more alter the
But who are to be the judges in this
matter? We have a fancy that such a
power might be awfully abused: and the
poor girls would find it impossible to work
a month with some housekeepers I wot of,
and not speak words that would be con
strued into impudence. Let me tell all
those ladies that talk about servants being
masters or mistresses, that the blarse may
sometimes be their own.
"And sure now, Mistress Smith, if it's

Mrs. Smith walked up stairs, and Mrs.

Nutritive Qualities or the Onion;
The onion deserves notice os an arttcle
cf great consumption in this country, and
it rises in importance when we consider
that in some countries, like Spain and.
Portugal, it forms one of the commi and ,
universal supports of life. It 13 interest
ing, therefore, to know that, in addition
to the peculiar flavor which first reccm
inendsit. the onio.i is remarkably nutritious.
According to analysis, the dried .Onion
root contains from twenty-five to thirty
per cent, of gluten. It ranks, iri this re
spect, with the nutritious pea and tho
grain of the East. It is not merely rt3 a
relish, therefore, that th,3 wayfaring Span-'
