A Reminiscence of Sec. Seward's
While "William H. Seward was pursuing fc;s
course of study at Union College, 3chenectadT, N.
Y., he became greatly enamored of a young lady,
who was then the reigning belle of the city. At
tending the fBino colk-ffo wa young man, of
wealthy parents, by the name of Cbevalior, who
was also greatly in lore with the same lady.
Seward at that time had little to bnast of in the
way pf wealth, and although a young man of
marked ability, he could not Tie with young Chor
alier, whote parents supplied him with all the
money he desired. The yourg lady preferred Sow
ard, but her parents preferred wealth ; and she soon
became Mrs. Chevalier.
But alas lor human hopes I IIow often are we
doomed to disappointment ? Hardly were tho
happy eoup!e united, when both parents utterly
failed ; the bright dreams of wealth vanished, and
life in all its stern re vlity of earnest toil was upon
them. Unaccustomed to labor, ignorant of the
most common affairs of life, they were as helpless
as child rtn. Chevalier tried various employments
that would call into use his education. He failod
as a clerk ; he could cot teach ; hii education ap
peared of no value to biia whatever; and what lit
tle he did earn bis wife laid out in gew-gaws, and
a few years found tbem occupying a mi emb'e un
derground room, and Chevalier sawinywood from
door to door, around the streets of Schenectady.
In due time Seward graduated with honor, and
commenced bis useful career. Step by step he
forced his way up from obscurity; fortune srailed
on bis efforts, because he possessed the power of
adaptation, and knew how to suit himself to cir
cumstances. Soon he found himself honored by
the people, and placed at the head of the govern
ment of the Empire State. But through all his
prosperity he could not forgot the object of hi
early love. 'Whenever busines or pleasure called
him to Schenectady, he never failed to seek oat the
bode of Mrs. Chevalier; and many a substantial
token, in the shape of some articlo of luxury for
the table, or article of wearing apparal, bore testi
mony of the sincerity of his friendship for the un
fortunate lady who once possessed his heart's best
V'e think the above reminiscence never appearod
in print before; and as we are personally acquainted
with Mr. Chevalier, we can vouch for its authen

we are ready to do all in our power to asist in.or-

Arab iliSTUicr, February 8,
E'litor Adcertintr : Although I Lave not tho
honor of a pem-nal acquaintance with you, I have
taken the liberty lo address you, with a view of
informing you and your nutneroui ro.idtrs how we
prof-pcriu this barbarous locality, known as" A rub."
The q'ltption b8 never been definitely fettled as
yet bow the name of "Arab" was bestowed upon
the good people of tbig district ; however, we main
tain that then? is "nothiur iu the nauie," aud we
doubt not but this name will distinguish us from
the neighboring districts for all co-ning ti:n.
We have in tLis?ch. ol district a neat littlo aohool
hffuse, which is well filled with echolnrs wh , under
the management of Mr. Norland (their present
teacher) are making rpid improvement in their
various sialics, mated it is as iamiiiar a eaying
as Household Words," among the g?iod people of
the district, that the scholars have never learned so
fas!, and taken such a deep interest in theiratudia
iuce the district was first organized, fca they have
during the past six months of tchool.
The scholars havo been rtboarsingfor seme three
weeks for the purpose tf giving an exhibition,
whfeb came off last Friday evening, which, con
sidering the short time in which they had to pre-
pure, hi.d the icct nveniencos of crowded house and
small room, was very creditably done.
We bayc alsd a debating soci ty, under thecaption
of "Arab Improvement society," which has proved
a great auxiliary in wnilingaway tho long winter
evenings. Mr. Frank Irwin is our pre.-idert, and
John V. Stone, secretary; and able and efficient
officers they have proed themselves to be.
I d n't know of anything more of interest at
present, with the exception that we bail with de
light tbe appearance of spring, 'that delightfu'
season wbuh aboriginal tarda appear so f,nd of."
We ate "muchly" pleated with the size, tone and
general appearance of the 4fcertW,and wish you
every success (pecuniarily' spiking) in your en
deavors to make it whak it really ia the farmer's

II. O. Minick, Setretary.
Editor jldvertistr : I did not intend
to trespass on your space any more with
this subject, and my apology for so doing
at (his lime is that I cannot allow Mr.
Bryant' remark? to co by unDOticed, as
ho either misunderstands or willfully
misrepresents my statements. In either
case the effect is the same. The first is
in regard to the cost of making the
fence; the second in making hdge. and
the third in . the distance idvoca:ed for
planting. Will Mr. Bryant' egotism
allow him to correct his errors?
Now, whatever views I have pre
sented in these columns that do not ac
cord with his ideas, will he, Mr. B., for
the benefit of all concerned, point them
out, and tell where the error is, what it
is, and fully explain all its connections?
Simple assertion?, unless based upon
general principles, are inadmissible ; and
if Mr. Bryaut, in discussing these ideas,
convinces me of my error, I ehall feel
uuder obligations to him for eo doing.
Will he alfo give his figures in regard
to the cost of making hedge on the raw
prairio. E. H. B.

February 25th, 1S68. f
Editor Jldvcitiser : The club met this
week to consider the different sorts of
apples, and the best locations for an
orchard. In our list of sorts you will
notice that we have a desire to " cut
down " on the many kinds recommended
as hardy, for the simple reason that we
have no trees to sell, and wish people
would be maie cautious in their selec
tions. The following will, by comparison
wiih nurserymen's hats, be fuuDd unob
jectionable, and those that will do well
on the greatest variety of soils, &c.
For Summer or early sorts, the Carolina
June aud Red Jlstiican will be found the
be?t. For Autum or Fall use, the
Duchess of Gldeuburgh, the Hawley and
the Jersey sweeting are all good ; and
for Wiuter the Wine Sap, JTtw York
Pippin, Willow Twig, Famous or Snow
HJljipie, Northern Spy, and Rawle s Jen
nette will all be found unobjectionable as
to ll ivor Of hardiness
It was the opinion of the club that
hijh limestone toil, wiih a frequency uf
hollows, or in other words email hills,
with an exposure as far from the south
west as pos?ible, was the very best for
raiding the apple or any other fruit.
I will give you something on email
fruits next week.

Club met pursuant to adjournment.
The minutes of the last meeting were
read and approved.
On motion, th Chair appointed W. F.
Wright and R V. Black, a committee to
draft the rules of order for the Club.
The committee reported the following,
which was read by the Chair and ad
1st. Reading of minutes.
21. Reports of Committees.

6lh. Unfinished Busings.
On motion, the following resolutions
wer read and adopted :
Resolved, That we, the officers and
members of this society, hereby invite as
members of this society all persons,
without distinction of age, sex or color.
On motion, the Jlmerican Agriculturist
and Horticulturist were selected for the
uje of the Club for the present year
The question of the beat method of
growing Spring Wheat was then dis
cussed by Mes:rs. Haywood, Wilkey,
Black, and others, and we came to the
following conclusions, viz:
1st. That the ground should be thor
oughly plowed in the Fall.
2d. That the seed wheat should be
thoroughly clensed of all impurities by
swimming in brine, and afterwarks par
tially dried by sifting quick lime over it.
It is also believed by many that the
lime process will effectually destroy the
Finut, as it is usually termed. After the
above preparation it mkea but little dif
ference whether the wheat i sown
broadcast or with a drill, bo that it is
covered well by harrowing. But for my
part I should prefer the drill, as we can
then get the grain more regularly dis
tributed, and covered with less labor.
Whem should be sown as early as the
ground is in good condition, but not mud
ded in a& some do.
On motion, the subject selected for dis
cussim at our next meetiog was the best
method of fr ucing our farms.
On motion, the Club then adjourned to
meet at the Illinois School Houie on
Sdturdry the 15ih day of February, at
one o'clock, P. M.
It's well to praise the early bird
For picking ora.s, but it's absurd
To think that bird, you can not doubt it
Would die could worms to got without it.

A Small Voice from the West.
Liberty, Feb. 20. h.
Editor Advertiser ; Seeing discussions
in your p iper in relation to herding stock
and fencing our prairies, I would say,
in defence of herding stock on the
prairies, in my humble opinion the people
of Nebraska will eventually come to the
conclusion that it is an actual necessity.
If stock be permitted to rove at random
where they please, and farmers receive
no compensation for the losses occasioned
by their depredations, except through a
law suit aud fuss with the owners, then
it is high lime a portion of the farming
community quit the losing game and tiy
some other means for a livelihood. I have
seen cases where whole fields of grain
were totaly destroyed, and that after the
owners had spent more time and mean
lo protect it than it would Lave been
worth if it had arrived at maturity, been
harvested, threshed and. sacked ready for
sale. Now, in the face of all this, let us
have a general herd law, let ua try it on
for a while, and my 6imple word for it
before it has been an act two yeara there
will scarce be a voice in opposition. The
fact of the business i3, our fences of
wood arc no protection to our crops; it
is tbe case in thi3 part of Nebraska and
every where else, as far as I have seen,
with, perhaps, a few exceptions.
Now it takes some time to have a
hedge ferce: from three lo five years;
and the majority of tbe settlers will Lave
to hedge if they fence at all ; and stock
shou'd not be auoweu io trampie it Gown
and de.troy it, much less ihe crop. it is
destined to protect; now the herding sys
tern nlone will accomplish both objects
I believe it is evident to a great many
minds that if the present syaiea i coa
tinued mucji longer, the turpk-s stock will
have to be got rid of er a great cumber
will have to quit faming.
We have, here in Gsg3 county, a herd
law, and the opposition to it at first was
pretty strong, but it is faa girii. way;
its worst oppesers will now admit :ha wis
don of the law. Ojt country is bound to
fast settle up, and all are not alia to fecca
substantially with raiU or plank, I u: all
must keep some stock .t,W);,i' iy$ one, .
"let every man take cara of his aloe,
herd thera at night and watch tiiem out
of mischief in tha day time.' My dear
sir, that is played out; what we wact ia
home protection; we want owner of stock
to be amenable for what his sleek destroy.
I dont care what you call it, a herd law,
or law to restrain stock from commuting
depredations cn crops; anyihiug you
please, only let us have it. I believe
there has been more hard feeling, fusaia;
and bitterness among neighbors oa
account of breachy and unruly stock thaa
war, religion, politics and all tattiirggoa
sips combined. "Well" says oz, "will
a herd law make it any better." My dear
sir, it cant make it worse, and ia my hum
ble view will make it a great deal belter.
When a man is compelled to pay damage
he will do it without going to law about
it ; while at present it is worth the damage
to collect it. Look at it, friends. 1 would
like to ee intelligent farmers' auJ slock
raisers' opinions oa the subject.
Farmera Oa Too Ilach Lnnil.
The high prices which hava been ob
tained for some time past, and which ara
now received for country produce, have
stimulated our farmers to branch'.cut.
Many of them have bought or intend to
buy the "next eighty" or forty acres
joining. Now, while we admit that ev
ery one understands his own affdirs beat,
and also the extent of his desirable pos
sessions ; still we think a word of cau
tion may possibly save our readers soma
funds, or anxiety. It is certainly better
to raise one thousand bushels of corn oa
ten acres, than to devote twenty acres ta
the same purpoe. If ihe fame amount
of fertilizers and the same labor was ex
pended on ten acres, which is necessary
to cultivate the twenty, it would not only
belter the laud, but it would generally
produce the deoired result, and leave,
the ten ucrrs to be devo.ed to O'.h'T crops.
Fed you laud and it vvdi teed you.
Make it produce the moat possible to b
realized trMi the same number of acres.
Improve yuur fences so nu to avoid hav
ing your crops- destroyed by your own or
yuur neighbor's ttock. improve your;
barns and oui-bui!dijf.'3, and thus save
feed and fuel. Get a pump for your
well or ciMern and thus save tbe strength
of your wife and your own. Have yuur
buildings painted and thus preserve them;
in fact, instead of spreading, concentrate
your forces, or in other words your capi
tal, and the hard time.-, which are
already felt by many, will leave you un
harmed. You will have less lax to pay,
be enabled to dox your work in- good
season, and enjoy better what vou have
without being overworked. You will
also have more time to cultivate your
mind, attend lo the education of yuur
children, and not dread the day when the
interest on your notes will come due,
which you may possibly hav,j given ia
part payment for the next eightv acres.
A gentleman residing in a village nit
many mile3 from Exeter, N. II., finding
that the diminution of his wood pile con
tinued afierhis fires went out , lay a wake
in ordpr to get, if pjsiible, simn clue to
the mystery. At a late hour, when all
honest folks should be in bed, hearing
an operator at work iu the yard, hi cin.-.
iously raised his window, r.i caw u h.zy
neighbor trying to get ahrge log c a

to come and help me!"
A gentleman named Walker, w?nt ta

Walker is c heavy ni;c. ai.d !i!;ei hi

they stuck tight to his l-'g. whereat he
thus remonstrated: 'T told you to miUe

ended the controversy by deel irmg : "I
dinks dese pant3 is full enough; if dsy
