it be foutul e.pial to ordinary cane in that
respect, a new era in the agriculture f
the North will be inaugurated, and an im
mense breadth of land be devoted to cul
ture, as soon as the necessary seed can
be obtained, which will reouiro another
year at least. The seed having been
distributed late in the Spring, which was
cold and backward, there is gmxl reason
to believe that much planted did not reach
maturity. Should the plant fail, so far as
tho manufacture of sugar is concerned,
yet its value as a forage crop cannot be
overestimated at the North. Cattle, hogs
and horses eat the entire stock with avidi
ty, and no doubt would fatten rapidly on
it. The seed, which is small, has a thin
black hull which can be taken oil", leaving
a fine white flour ns the residue. We
have no means at present of estimating
the value of this hour as an article of food;
but no doubt its merits will lie fully inves
tigated. The culture required for the
plant is similar to that adopted for iudian
corn when plintcd in rows, and the seed
should be put into the ground aN'Ut the
same time. As it is a quick and strong
growing plant, it should be well manured.
In a foflner number of this paper we
noticed the receipt of a small quantity of
Molasses, manufactured from cane grown
in our vicinity. From experiments made
here, and from the successful issue of the
trial in Bucks County, which we give
above, there is no doubt in our mind, that
the culture of this variety of cane can be
made a profitable business, and the North
ern States, will, in the opinion of many,
in a short time be able to supply a portion
of that article to the consumers at home
We wish the gentlemen who have some
of the seed of this variety of cane, would
favor us with a small quantity, as there
has been several applications made to
for some tq plant the coming Spring.
A Thing i:very Farmer Should
If you wish to drive a cut-nail into sea-
noned oak timber, and not have n break
j . . . .
or bend, just have a small quantity of oil
near by and dip the nail U'fore di ivi-jg,
and it will never fail to go. In mending
carts and plows thu is of great advantage
for they are generally made most of oak
wood. In straightening old nails U'fore
using, lot it be done on wood, and with1
easy mows, ir none on iron tney win re

Iniprot cm fill in Hoots At Shoes.
An English mechanic has devised a
new plan for the construction of boots niul
shoes. It consists in forming the under
sole and seat of (he heel that it may be
easily adjusted in the seal, or be readily
removed, repaired and refilled, or u new
one submitted. Where desired, passages
or grooves are formed in the inner top
surface, which communicate with the
atmosphere, and through perforations in
in the inner sole, with the foot, there is
stamped, or otherwise formed from leather
gutta percha, or suitable material for the
underside of hoots ami other like articles,
a piece which forms the sole, wnist and
Neat of the heel. The seat is hollowed in
the centre, and is formed on the inside,
with a sunk plunge or rim for the recep-1
lion of iho heel. The plan presents de
((utility or IVal tin.
For some time past, gas has been man
ufactured from peat, in Paris. In mea
suring the comparative illuminating pow
ers of coal anil peat gas, the result has
been found to be in lavor ot neat, its
power being three hundred nud forty-two,
while that of coal is one hundred. The
manufacture of pent gas is also described
as more simple than that of coal. The
petit, if put into an iron retort heated to a
low red heat, allords iuuuediately a mix
ture of permanent gasses and vapors
which condense into an oleaginous liquid,
which two products separate on cooling.
The oil is subject to a new distillation,
and resolved wholly into a permanent gas
and hydrogen very richly carlmrretted.

Old John was quite a temperate man
That no one could deny,
I To drank his water tempered with
A trifle of " old rye."
For John believed in warming drinks,
And tonic mixtures mild,
As he was often troubled with
Hid stomach's getting rye-l'd.
Old John was not a pious man
Hut yet he oft did feel
The spirit's inlluence o'er his soul
In pensive moments steal.
Old John was not to falsehood prone.
Nor truth nor virtue scoffed,
Yet, though he rarely spoke untruth
I've seen him lie full oft.
Though grim of feature and austere",
Nor oft by mirth beguiled,
And, though he very seldom laughed,
No man more often smiled.
A " hard case" he was often styled,
Hut, though a rough old fellow,
A hard case he could scarce have been,
He was so often lncllou.
They called him dissolute and loose,
As with much truth they might,
Hut yet 'tis strange they called him loose
When always getting tight.
Though flushed his face.his nose bloodred
His hair of sanguine hue, .
Yet people often would persist,
And say that John was blue.
John had no music in his soul,
It was not in him born ;
Yet though he could not raise a note
He sometimes tried a horn.
Though bold as youthful David, who
Before Goliath stood
John slew no giants with his sling
Ah! no ! 'twas he got slew'd.
But now he's gone! death called him when
His earthly toil was done,
He smiled his last and then went off
Half-cocked, like some old gun.
Mr. Ca:sar, a darkey preacher on a
southern plantation, had made an appoint
ment to preach about twenty miles from
his master s plantation, and there he made
his appearance with his saddle bags on
his arm, and gave out at once that he had
come to preach the Gospel to the niggers
" Yah ! yah !" responded a hundred
voices ; but one ot the negroes, more bold
but not worse than the rest, sung out :
" t ell, now, look a-here, nigger, if you
jis nrung a pack o cards wid you, you
mout dun sumhn, but preachm is a little
too slow for dis congregation."
Caesar remonstrated with them, as they
all seemed to fall in with the old fellow's
ideas; but they told him to go home, and
" de nex time he come to bring de cards."
Gcsar started oflT with his saddle-bags on
his arm, but halted, opened them, and
turning about as he said, " If dat's what
you must have, why, den, you must !" and
pulling out a greasy old pack, sat down
on the grass.
" Dat's de talk : O de land, iis look !
dat nigger got some little senses left arter
all : sensibul to de last !" they cried out,
one after another. The preacher com
menced operations, and after some five or
six hours' playing, had skinned every
thing around, cleaning them out of all the
loose silver they had picked ud in many a
day; Caesar shoved the documents into the
bags, and starting off again, told them, by
way of a parting benediction, that when
ever they had a little mpre money to sup
port the Gospel in that way, just to let him

Punch is wicked enough to print the
following paragraph under the head of
" Social Statistics." Married gentlemen
