Answer to " We Miss thee at Home."
Thongb iVe wandered far, my heart'i not here,
Tls itill in my tit distant home j
And raem'rj ttill bides with the loved and dear,
Though pleasant the scenes where I roam;
Though pleasant tha voices tbat greet me.
Yet ne'er can they strike the heart chord,
And vibrate such music, more 6weetly,
As then echoed lore in kind words.
As then echoed love in kind words.
Though thousands were ready to lore me,
The length of my days would seem drear,
If thoughts of the angeled above me,
"With those that I earthly hold deaf,
Were effaced from my fond recollection
I'd regret my long earthly stay,
Could I not my present affection
Commingle with that far away,
Commingle with that faraway.
. How sweetly some voices, how pleasant,
Re-echo the ones that hare flown,
Uniting the past with the present,
Place memory high on her throne ; '
. Such music could I Lare to bless me,
Then never would I seem alone ; -The
past would then fondly caress me,
The present would be all my own,
The present would be all my own.

From the Rural New rorker.
Thistas been called the lazy farmer's

who was intending all summer to break
up a summer fallow, to sow with wheat
in the fall. Failim? in this, bv nefflect-

the proper time, he concluded to wait till

to sow. Beside,
where other crops h :u:ch '
or on a spare acre or ,
good farmers will, sometin;Os.learw with
out much of anything growing on. P
places in the cornfield where th.e blac.c-
grub, or wire-worm, or wet, nas ow
ed the corn, a little buckwheat miv of
ten profitably be sown, to prevent the ut
ter barrenness of the year.
We know there are some objections to
buckwheat as unfitting the land for sub
sequent crops. We have heard, from
good authority, that corn or barley will
not do well after it; but we cannot say
from experience. Oats will grow after
it, as we know, but they, or whatever
else you raise, will be liable to have a
good deal of buckwheat mixed with them
and this we consider the great objection
its culture, as it sometimes remains in the
ground two or three years, i nis may oe
partially prevented by fall plowing, after
the crop is taken off, but some will still
come up next spring. For these reasons
we would not advise the sowing of our
best frrain land, especially since wheat
has aain bscome a possibility. We feel,
indeed, a good deal like a substantial
farmer of our acquaintance, who counts
his acres by the hundred, who was lamen
ting last year that he could not have any
land to spare for a buckwheat patch, and
thought he must hire an acre or two of
one of his neighbors for that purpose !
He evidently had land enough for any
quantity of buckwheat, but did not want
to use it for that. Wre must, however be
permitted to rejoice that everybody is not
so careful of their land as he is, or as
we should be ! Beside, there are, on al
most every farm, low, wet places, or
patches of ground too ooor to raise any
thin" else, which will do very well for
buckwheat. And, friends or iarm im
provements as we are, we must still hope
that the day is not far distant when our
land is so thoroughly improved, that our
farmers can not afford a patch to raise
buckwheat pancakes. We take that all
lack for we hive just remembered that
they can sow good land and raise all the
The first week in July is the proper
time to tov buckwheat. June sowing
would be best if we could be certain not
to have hot. dry weather, just as it was
filling ; and late sowing is objectionable
because of early frosts. Last year, how
ever, if we remember rightly, the fore
pari of July was very dry, so that buck
wheat came up till about the seventeenth
or eighteenth, and even then, would hare
done very well if frosts had held off as
late as usual in the fall ; therefore, with
a good season, the middle of July might
not be too late to sow.

Reproduction bj Propagation.
There are 4 principal modes of repro
duction in propagation, namely : 1. 'Lay
ering. 2. By cutiiDgs. 3. By grafting.
4. By inoculating.
t or-rmtr mnsists in bending down the
branches, limbs, or suckers, without sep
arating them from the parent plant, and
covering them with soil : their extreme
eni3 being lett out. lnus buried, tasy
will gsnsrally strik root ; some particular
trees, however, with extreme difficulty.
Su:h must be tongued an operation that
consists in cutting the layer half off, and
splitting it up an inch or more ; the cleft
to be kept open by a small wedge, and
buried beneath the surface. This oper
ation should be performed in the Sprang:;
and the plant, when well rooted, maybe
separated in the autumn or spring follow
By Cuttings. There are many plants
that may be raised from cuttings. For
trees", cuttings should generally be from
eight inches to a foot in length, cut off at
the bottom, close below an eye, and
planted in a. humid soil, two thirds of
their length beneath the surface, and the
ground trodden hard. With some par
ticular kinds, however, it is necessary to
square the bottom of the cutting, and
press it hard down to the bottom of a pot.
Other kinds must be planted in pure
sand, and protected from the sun till it-is
rooted. They require artificial heat in
the soil, and a confined atmosphere, that
moderates their transpiration.
Grafting consists in placing a branch
or twig of one vegetable upon another,
in a way to cause the branch or twig to
produce anew plant, with more valuable
products. The plant grafted upon is cal
led the "stock;" the plant grafted, the
"scion." Grafting is particularly useful
to perpetuate certain vegetables, that are
by nature enilowed with peculiar proper
ties, that would be lost were the plant
continued by means of the seed.
Professor Thouin has described forty
modes of grafting: we will describe but
three cleft grafting, grafting by ap
proach, and root grafting.
Cleft Grafting This mode of graft
ing i usually practised on stocks of from
one to two inches in diameter. It is
thu3 performed : The head of the stalk
is cartfully sauvd off, at a part free frum
knots, and the top pared smooth. With
a thin knife, split down the stock through
the center, to the depth of about two inch
es; insert a wedge to keep it open for
the reception of the scion. The scion i3
to be prepared in the form of a wedge,
with an eye, if possible, in the upper
part of the portion thus formed. Per
fect success is the most certain when this
is the case. The scion is now carefullv
inserted, so that the upper bark of the
scion, and the inner bark of the stock,
may both exactly meet. In large stocks,
sometimes four scions are inserted. The
whole is now to be carefully covered
with the grafting clay, except two or three
eyes of each sion.
Grafting by Approach. This is often
resorted to with plants ihat succeed with
difficulty by other modes. The limb or
,limb3 of each plant, which are to be thus
uin.'ted, must be prepared with a long.
slopi'S cut, of several inches, nearly to
the cfcier J an( tne part of each, thus
orepareii are to be brought together and
firrnv secured hy a bandage, so that the
bark shall exact.1 meet on at least one
side ; they are theri covered, at the junc
tion,' -with c.'ay or com" oosition. When a
complete unio.o has tairert place, the trees
are separated with a knife, by cutting off
the scion below the junction, U.nd cutting
off the stock above.
Root Grafting. This operation is of
ten performod on grapevines, just be.'ow
the surface of the earth by the usual mode
of cleft-grafting. It is also performed on
portions df root where suitable stocks are
From the Uural New Yorker.
When I was a child, my mother was
wont to sit with me at the twilight hour,
telling me, perchance, a fairy tale, or a
story of children good little children
of the olden time. Sometimes she spoke
to me of the b3tter land our brighter
home bidding me seek it aright. Oh!
at those twilight hours good angehcame
very near us so near I fancied I could
almost hear their singing, almost see
their lovely forms hovering above us-
One evening in the autumn time, my
mother, who had grown pale and thin of
late, sat by the open door, idly, even sady
watching, while day furled her red ban
ners in a soft, purple haze, and thin stars
came out in Heaven's blue vault. Then
she called me to her, asking me which
of all the stars I loved the best. I rais
ed my finger, pointing to the evening s&r
the first to shine when they day has fled.
Aye, love it ever, my child; may it be
truly a light to thee, cheering the dark
hours of hfe, guiding thee at last to thy
mother, and thy heaven.
She passed from earth, my gentle mo
ther. Childhood had for me one great
sorrow, one crushing grief. Everywhere
I missed her who had made existence a
charmed thing to me ; but nowhere, and
at no time, did I so sorrow for her loss
as at the twilight hour. . Then would a
desolation come over me, a sense of fear
ful' loneliness At this time I looked upon
my star, pure, bright, and beautiful. The
words of my mother came over my soul
like some forgotton thing, charming its
very sadness, t fancied through the
stars Ae looked upon me, spoke to me,
and her words were peace. A new joy
stole into my sad heart, a trust, a confi
dence. Another spell was thrown around
my star, it had comforted me in sorrow.
A weary way hath been mine since
then, but a holy thing my star hath been
tome. It hath charmed away my sor
row, it hath inspired my soul to high and
holy endeavor.it hath been to me a friend
constant and true. For many years I
have loved it, glimpses of gbry my soul
hath caught whib gazing upon it, aye, it
hath well nigh forgotten earth, its care3
and its sorrows, longing to go thence to
its home, the spirit's home. Oh, more
than prophet or preacher, hath my star
spouen to me ct tne better land. It hath
taught me that away, far away, there k
rest for the troubled soul, there is joy for
tne sorrowing, here is love for the des
olate and uriloved, there is a long home
for the homeless. Thither hath my spirit
turned with, earnest longings, oyous in
the hope that the journey shall be ended
at last; aye, I know that one right holy
stars snail gleam upon a new-made grave.
one morning, God willing, the gates of
neaven shall be opened.that one of earth's
weary ones may enter with rejoicing.
