After a ride of two liundrcd miles
through uninterrupted snow-banks, one
is rather surprised to find himself prom
enading dry ilags and cobblo-stones in New
York. The city is innocent of snow, yet
the waatber we have here is de-spiriting
enough: rainy, foggy, true London weath
er. The sun has forsaken us, for the
ieu.1 of w ar, or some other center of inter
est. Coining from sheerful firesides ol
Yankeedom, where mils' are cracked, and
apples eatm, one is struck by the care
worn; anxious expressions which sila on
all the "old fami iar faces," from tho Wall
street banker to the Fullon ferry apple
woman. The countences of buisness
men lire "signs of the times," betokeing
bankruptcy, famine, and till such direful
visions. Therefore tho city is doleful
.ho' Fashion spreads hor peacock tail not
less superbly than of old. Aininj the
poor there is, and will be though tho win
ter, a great deal of suffersng. It is dif
ficult to obtain employment und imny are
, brown out of occupation by the reverses
of employers. The benevolent societies
of this and the adjoining cities are laboring
faithfully to improve the condition of the
various classes of poor whom they have
taken in charge. The Female Employ
ment Sociely, of U ooklyn, is affording
,h means of supporl to many indigent
seninslresses, by enabling theinto dispo se
of their work at remuneiativo ju ices.

have been put in early and in the best
manner, land not injured by previous
mismanagement, have been but slightly
affected. An energetic fanner of our ac
quaintance prepared his land last year, by
first turning over deeply a good clover
aod then giving, this a good coat of com
post in.uure then harrowing the interl
e I sod and compost into complete inter
mixture and pulverization then turning
the whole under with the gang-plow just
deep enough for the roots of the young

the best manner. The whole of this was
accomplished by the first day of au'um-..
Oilier crops on the same farm, after cam,
were also well put in, but necessarily

named crop yielded the present, season of
drought and insects, not less ihan thirty
bushels eflhc finest wheat per acre the
other was only ten bushels per acre.
Others crops in the same neighborhood,
.own riter corn with only ordinary care
and ti.litge, produced but five bushels per
acre. Iu one instance, when two fisdd
were sown fide by side, on similar I.nd,

thoroughly tilled with an especial view to
the destruction of "June grass," the lat
ter yield! nineteen bu.lv.ls per ucre, tha
former only ten. Lxamples may be mul
tiplied to degree, showing the great pro-
fus of the best modes of tillage for secur
ity against these depredators.
The present year of extraordinary
drought has furnished some interesting
lessons on the diffctence between the ef
fects of good end bad management. The

no'hing of earth can mar. Never yet was

Love is the music and unseen spell that
soothes tho wild and rugged tendencies of
human nature, that lingers about the sanc
tity of the fireside, and unites iu closer
union of the fafTec. ions of society, and tho

of the tempest cloud and when our f ato

seek shelter in her own hallowed temple,
and offer us a sacrifice, her vows and affections.
