When to Cat Wheat.
The usual practice among farmers is
to let wheat stand, before it ts cut, until
he straw is entirely changed from green
to yellow, and the grain has become hard
and nearly nr quite dry. Numerous ex
periments have been made iu this coun
;ry, but more particularly in England, to
determine at what period of ripening ii
is best to cut wheat, having in view the
greatest yield of grain and that of the
bast quahtj. It is well known to those
who have investigated the object, thai
tbe ripening of tbe sced3 cone's'.s entire
!y of certain chemical processes' which
we cannot here attempt to explain, thai
;tre of importance to be considered in or
der to make the most of the crop after it
has been grown. The immature grain
of wheat, in ius early stage, is found to
be filled with a milky fluid, which gra.l
u illy changes in consistence, from this
milky stale, to oae more firm aad solid.
These experiments have been institu
ted to-determine with accuracy at w&at
perioJ of this change the grain should be
harvested to secure the gratest advanta
ges. The unanimous opinion appears to
pet that if grain is cut seen after the
straw telow the head ha3 turned yellow,
while the lower part of stem is still
green, and the seed yet remains in a
s -ft and doughey state, the grain will
w igh more to the bushel and yield a
grater amount from a given space of
grcnad, that more and better flour is
made from it, and where the straw is to
be fed to stock it is rellished better end
is more nutritious than if the grain was
allowed to stand until it became fully
These experiments have been so fre
quently made and with such uniform re
sults, that we feel unwilling to let the
coming harvest pass without reminding
our readers of the fact. A very careful
series cf experiments syefe made cf ihil
character, some years since, in Yorksh
ire, England, by Mr.- John Hannara,
and he sums Dp the loss by shelling,' and
in the weight and quality cf the grain,
fram letting it stand until fully ripe,
equal to S6 per acre; this sum, or even
half of it, should not be lest sirjaf of by
the farmer. Volvxan's Rural World.

"Liken sweetness long drawn out."
At length, after many vain attempts ta

sticks the faster." The young lady theq
attempted to get up, which she did, rnp
nus the skirt of her.drSi3 and all her un
derclothes as far as the "tilters." Ia this
plight she tried U relieve her disconso
lated partner, but it was cf no use ha
couldn't come. After some parley, ha
came to the conclusion he would managa
it by slipping out of his pant3. Accor
dingly he asked of his companion if sb.3
could lend him a pair of pant until
coulJ go homo.. hji;- rV
would do if they were not tco long, with;
this information he slipped eff his boots
and loosing his suspenders, drew himself
out of his pants as easily as possible, and
the disconsolate couple took themselves
down stairs In a very blnshing manner,
and looking very much like our first fa j!
ents when they discovered that they were
human. The lady procured, a3 quietly
as possible, a pair cf her father's pan$,
which were run inio pretty quick, and
the A&jnh decamped, with his paat3
rolled up about six inches. The joke
was too cood to be kept ; bv little and
little it leaked cut, until the truth had tqr
come to exculpate the happy Innocents.
A friend in Raleigh sends us a copy
of the North Corlina Standard, frotr
which we clip the following conments;
on the ill-bestowed sympathy ia irjg
South for Jeff- Davis. It is the plainest
talk of the right sort which we have seenj
in any Southern paper sines the commen
cement of the Rebellion.
We observe that a good deal of sic!;y
sentimentality is being indulged over the
f .ct that Mr, Jefferson Dav.s was tempo?
ranly placed in irons, when he was im
prisoued last May at Fortress Monroe.
It is charged that Mr. Secretary Stantua
had this done, and he is denounced by
the secession press as haying committee;
a great outrage on the Southern people,
and against humanity, This is an indi
rect blow at the President, for Mr. Stan
ton represented the President ia that, a
in all otner matters.
It was hard for Mr. Davis u b ironed,
bit how many thousand cf pojr cnscroj
ptsdid he cause to be put in irons 1 toj
be shot? to ba tortured? to be hunted
like partridges in the gorges of the mou"
tain3 f to be torn from their weep1
wives and child em, while they were
forced into a war they abhered, and in
which success was known to be imposs?
ible ? God is just. Sin is punished everj
m this world. Many cf these conscripts
were better men morally than Mr. Divi?t
and their 'families, poor thou?h they
were, as dear to them as the family of
Mr. Davis wa3 to him. We never shal
forget the feeling of our Uma pecplj
in this city, whan for twelve long months
before the war closed, the daily spectacle;
oa our main street rr that cf marching
conscripts, with heads bowed, with iron
and ropes on their limbs, cn their way tq
Camp Holmes, and thence to deo.h cq
the battlefield or in hospital,
Our Union people were obliged taloo'4
on in silence. One word even cf cocdern?
nation would have brought the rope cr
the mob on them. Bji they are nar
free, and though under the tan cf the
State administration (which is really no
mere loyal than the Vance administration)
that aided in these things) they ran q
least say what they please. '
If we were anxious to se2 Mr. TJavisi
ejected, cr ifTe desired tQ add to hU
punishment, vre should rather encourage
than deprecate these manifestations 0?
sympathy in his behalf. Bji every eff
or to bring the government into disgrai'a
on hts account will only make his dear
more shure and terrible. -, Tho e whocf
