C IB A IV CJ E . Tlio followingarliclc, by Lyman Bcccli er, is an admirable satiro on thu doctrino oftlio "Ibrtuitotis occiirrcnco of circum stances" in tbo creation oftlio world: Some tinio ago, after cltaos and old nicbt had roiemod undisturbed from eter nity, and matter liad fermonted, and tos scd, and rolled into almost infiuitu forms it happened to fall, for the first time, into just tboso relations which constituted the volcanic power ; when, in a moment an explosion took place, loud as ten thousand thunders, which sent out innumerable suns flying in confusion through spaco, stream ing athwart tho darkness, their beautiful light, till thoy slopped and became fixed stars in tho glorious firmament above. But thoy carried ia thoir bosom tho sad accidents which gavo thorn birth : nnd now throes ensued, sending out around thoni comets, and planets, and satellites al moving in elliptic orbits, with arithmetical accuracy, so that for ages past, and for ages to come, the almanac discloses their movements with as exact nmirraey as the clock tells of time. What chance it was that checked their flight, and by a revolu tion offeree wheeled them round in thrir elliptic career or why, the conlriprlal newer exhausted: thev die not fall hack with accelerated momentum, into thehor- ible crater whence they spnui'i or where that mass may he, which could fur nish matter of which to make the uni verse, and sustain reaction of sending it out; that mighty cannon, whose shots am suns and worlds ; our philosophers have not yet discovered, hut it so happens they were exploded, and as yet they have not fallen back. And now leaving the suns and orbs, nnd other systems, we dosrond to trace the historv oY our own mother earth, whom we meet iTokinir from her recent explosion, her waves of (ire tossing and i n ir, which, as they cooled, nested uul stood upright as a heap, anil became the perpetual hills and everlasting moun tains. The weightier masses sunk down wards towards the centre, with lighter and lighter deposites above, leaving the crust, when pulverised, for fallow ground and harvests. As vet, however, tlie earth was with out form and void, and a hideous naked ness spread over its bite burning surface when, strange to tell, grass and trees sprang up and began to ornament tlie lulls and carpet the v;.l evs and hard on the footsteps of this woikLt troilanolh- tlie waters teemed with organic lile, which lashed with oar the pliant wave, , ml sported in the deep and suddenly the hills sent down to the valleys, and the valleys s'-nt back to the hills, the bleating of flock.., and herds, while the groves sent forth the joyous notes dl birds and in sect. All these, in grand concert, burst out upon the silence of nature, and till, as they needed, waited on almighty chance, who gavo them their meat in due season. ' The organization of this delighted choir was such as demanded respiration, and the flowing ol a warm blood, ior which in elatic atmosphere was needed; and it happened, as the earth cooled and con solidated, that several gases escaped from confinement, so exactly ol the same spe cific gravity, and blessed with such social and friendly dispositions, that they agreed to exist in partnership, and to surround the earth, and must benevolently to vol unteer their aid for respiration. Each, alone, deadly to life, but united, its sus taining power. I his world of hreatlung animation, rose up with optics, camera-ol.sciira in the bead, lo pencil inside the images of ob jects without when, lo ! the orb of day, when he fled from his heated prison forgot not in his panic to- take with him stores of light, manufactured Tor immediate use, which ever since, he has been pouring out unexhausted, in marvellous abundance. Light, so dexterously compounded of seven colors, as to be colorless, and we'd adapted to the vision. 'Uut, amid this exuberance of animated being, there was not a man to till the ground, or admire the beauties of nature. Heboid, then, another wonder the fortu itous concourse of atoms, before the earth so cooled as to stop fermentation, pro duced a, human skeleton, around which, with kind affinity, came the sinews ami muscles, and took their place. The hmgs Ibrbrunthhig.nndthearterios and veins to carry mound the vital fluid, offered their aid, ami were accepted. The nervous system semi-animal, semi-spiritual took its middle place, as arbitrator be tween the soul and body. And to cover what otherwise had been unsightly, kind nature provided a blanket, and with kind sympathy threw its velvet covering over the whole. Tho eye, too, lit itself up accidentally, just at tlie moment it was wanted, and tho socket stood excavated for its reception, and the mucus warm to make it easy, and the ligament to tie it in. The mouth opened at the right time to prevent sullbcation, and in the right place for speech, and ornamented with double rows of ivory for mastication. While Nature's self, with pencil dipped in the ciders of heaven, stood by, well pleased to put on her beauteous workmanship, tho finishof the sparkling oye, and rosy cheek, and ruby lip. All this, however, bail constituted only a beauteous animal, but for the glorious accident of a machine for thinking, which happened to pass that way, and consented to make an experi ment of,' its powers in tho upper depart ment nl this marvellous product of chance It took its place, and swung tho pendulum, and has continued to go with surprising accuracy, though latterly, in some install ces, it has seemed to bo out of order, nnd to stand in need of some little rectification in respect to its reasoning powers.

Mr. Ebenezer Chase was a private in the New Hampshire militia, which reliev ed the Pennsylvania line at West Point in .IrSOjWhon those troops, being veterans were wauled elsewhere. Mr. Chase, with several others being off duty, was on the shore of the Hudson when Arnold de serted. When Gen. Washington assign ed the command of West Point, he left his own barge in bis possession. A tem porary but was erected on the east shore for tho accommodation of tho four oars men who managed the barge. On the morning of his desertion, (.'en. Arnold rode down to the shore from his head quarters at Robinson's farm, very fat as was bis custom threw the reins to his attendant, and ordered the barge to bo manned. lie then directed bis course toward the Point ; but on reaching the middle of the river, the boat was ol served to take a course down stream, and move very swiftly through the water. The explanation was afterwards made by the boatmen. He hoisted a flag of truce and told them to pull for the Vul ture s!oop-of-war, which lay below, say ing that he had some business with her captain, and promised, if they would row him down to her as soon as possible, to give them a guinea and a gallon of rum each. On Hearing the Vulture, and be ing within range of her guns, Arnold opened his plan, saying, "1 have served the ungrateful scoundrels long enough," and declared if they would go with him liny should have do'.ihlc pay, and be made sargeanis in the Uritish s'rvice. One of the men replied that "he did not understand fighlingon bothsides." 'Then,' s.iid the General you are prisoners' When they came alongside the sloop-of-war, Arnold ascended the deck, and was received by the marines with pre sented arms, lit; then ordered his men to come on board as prisoners of war. One of them, who had been their spokes man just before, said " It was a shabby trick, as they bad toiled lo their utmost strength lo get the boat along, now to re fuse the promised reward, and make thorn prisoners lo boot." The English captain heard their murmurs, and step ping forward, observed "Gen. Arnold, 1 command this ship, and while I walk this quarter-dock no such transaction shall take place. I know the meaning of my words, sir, and will meet their com ment." Then addressing the men, he coiilinued "Mvgood fellows, 1 respect your pi inciples and fidelity to your coun try although von are enemies to vour King. You shall have the liberty to go or stay, as you pleaf-e. Here, taking them from his purse, "are your guineas ; steward, put up four gallaons of rum for thee men," The boatmen thanked the allant and generous sailor, and returned in safety to head-quarters to report their proceeding-, l fion.W ashmglon, who had pist arrived in camp. Arnold, chagrined and enraged, retired without uttering a word, to the, cabin of thesloop-ol-war. I his statement was madebv Mr. (base about a fortnight before his death, in 18;51. lie also stated that he saw Major ndre going to execution, riding in the centre of a troop ofeight horses. Arnold, before bis escape,bad received information that 'John Anderson,' the name with which he had filled Andre's pass, was taken. The information was sent nun by too inilortunate person liuu- selt. J Ins determined his purpose for sudden flight, lie was afterwards dis tinguished for tlu! inveteracy with w;bich he carried on his predatory warfare against the property of his I'ollow-countrv nioii. After the war he went to England whore, although he received the conn teuance of the British government, his gffivr intention in his unsuccessful plot against the liberty of bis country were despised by British oflicers. The tinfeel ing wretch called upon the widowed moth er and sister of his unfortunate victim ( Andro).-Tho servant announced to (hem the name of Gen. Arnold ; and they mi mediately returned ir. message that they did not desire to see bun POPPING THE QUESTION. This important science in the economy of matrimony, is sensibly and philosophi cally handled by an old Bachelor in Era .er's Maga.iue. "Thntudi it k inmnssihlo tn ssiv :m' tlnntr very much to the purpose about refusal? generally, a littiV tact and observation will tell you whether the girl who re fused you would Imvo been worth having jiad she accepted. Lam speaking of ver bal communications only ; as nobody ever writes who can sneak. It is usual ui all cases of rufusal, for the lady to say that she is deeply gratelul lor the bono you have done her; but feeling only friendship for you, she rogitots that slit cannot accept vonr propositi, cce. fcc. I have heard the worHs soifien,that know them by heart. Tlie words, however va ried, signify little ; it is thn tono and manner in which they are pronounced that must guide you in forming your estimate oftlio cruel one. If they aro pronounced with ovident marks of sorrow, instead of triumph, showing unfeigned regret for having caused pain which she could not alleviate if her voice is soft, broken, and tremulous her eye dimmed with a lialf fornied tear, which it requires even an effort to subdue then, I say, you may -hare in her sorrow, for you have proba bly lost a prize worth gaining ; hut though you grieve you may also hope, if you are a man of any pretension, for there is evi dently good feeling to build upon. Do nti, therefore, fly out and make an idiot ofyoiirself,on receiving your refusal; sub mit with a good grace ; solicit a continu ance of friendship, lo support you under the heart-crushing affliction you havostis- ti'med. Take her hand at parting; ki?s it irequeiitly, lint quietly ; no outre couotvt of any kind jest a little at the expense of our own failure, without, however, at tempting to deprive her of the honor of the victory. Rise in her estimation by the manner in which you receive your sentence ; let her sorrow be mingled with itlmiralion, and there is no knowing how soon things will change. These instruc tions, you wi 1 perceive, are not intended lor every one, as thev require skill, tact, quickness, and feeling, in order to be ap preciated and acted upon. It you want these qualities, just make love purse in and ; it is a safe mode of proceeding, ind will answer adnrrnblv with all ranks, from Alniack's to the I'orough. There is only one class wilh whom it will not inswer, and that is the very class worth h;.v'ng. "It on the other hand, the lady refuses vou m a re ady-inade and well delivered peech, which had evidently been prc- p irod and kept waiting for you, then make your bo'.v, and thank your stars for your lucky escape. If she admonishes your inconsidi'ra'io conduct, bids vou calm otir excited feelings, and support afflic tion if sie triumphs, in fact, and is con descendingly polite then cut a caper for lov, and come down m the attitude of John of Bologna's flying Mercury, for you have ample cause to rejoice. II the lady snaps at you, as much as to say, 'Vou ire an nupuoent fellow which may be sometimes true, though it should not ex actly be told then reply with a few stanza's of Miss Landon's song: ' I Iipip i ill fiiu'Iii i n rliitipd n breeze, puirp wiili ili.iiigeli'S' rump tlie ppsip: 1-' X'"l m line - i"' on. l-t K-il- I 'I Inn mi urn fur mv umitleim .-ail.' If she bursts out into a loud fit of laughter, as I once knew a lady do, then join her by all means ; for you may be sure that she is an ill-bred hoyden or a downright idiot. But if, unable to speak grief at having caused you pain makes her burst into tears as a little Swedish girl once did when such a proposal was adi! to her then join her if you like, fortho chances are that you have lost one worth weeping for." A MisAiTijr.iii'.xsio.v. Wo recollect once being vt rv much amused at the re lation oftlio following anecdote, from the hps of a verv modest widow lady in New- Jersey. Soon after her husband paid the debt of Nature, leaving her his sole lega tee, a claim was brought against the e.statt by bis brother , and a process was served upon her by tho sherill ol the county, who happened to be a widower, of mid dle age. Being unused at that time to the forms of law though in the protract ed law suit which followed she had ample opportunity of acquiring experience she was much alarmed ; and meeting, just alter tlie departure of the sherill, with a female friend, she exclaimed, with much agitation, "What do vou think? Sherill' Prine has been after me!" "Well," said the considerate lady, with perfect cool ness, "he is a verv fine man." "But he savs he has an attachment for mo replies the widow." "Well, I have long suspected he was attached to you, my dear. "But, vou don t under.sland ho savs I must go to court." "Oh, thut's quite another affair, mv child don't vou j,o so far as that : it is his'place to come to court you !" FORCE OF INSTINCT. Mr. Southey, in his History of Brazil thus describes the perilous situation of Cabeza do Vaca, wfio, sailing towards Brazil, is preserved from shipwreck by grillo, or ground cricket : "When they had crossed the line, the state ol the wa tor was inquired'Hflo : and it was found that of a liundred casks there remained but three to supply four hundred men and thirty horses: upoirtbis'Hhe A'delantado . ...

A sol dier, who set out in ill-health, had brought a grillo, or ground cricket, wi(b him from Cadiz, thinking to ho amused by the insect's voice : but it had been silent tin. whole way, to his no little disappointment Now on the fourth morning the grillo he gan to ring its shrill rattle, scenting as was immediately supposed, tlio land. Such was the miserable watch which had been kept, that upon looking out at this warn ing they perceived high rocks within bow shot ; against which, had it not been for the insect, they must inevitably have bet lost. They had nist time to drop anchor From hence they coasted along, the grillo singing every night as if it bad been on shore, till they reached the island of St Lataliunj" The I iicpI inti'lbuenco fiom tlm Clieiokees, fjvnttihle, to an mniculilj icltlemeui. iri::i::iri in tho Mill. For forty-five years we have been en gaged in the labors of farming or in watch ing closely the labors of others in the same vocation. Farmers have ever been divided on the subject of manuring in the hill. And now we believe the great ma jority still coiil'miie the practice of put ting a shovel full of fine manure in the hili,or of spreading somealoiig in the fur row marked out for the seetl. When a man has been brought up to this mode we find he is loth to depart from it. He fears his corn will not find the manure unless it is put close to the cod. Many farmers tell us, Oh, it will do very well in your warm land to spread li the manure, broad-cast, but it will not do on our cold wet and heavy lands. Our answer is that cold, and wet, and heavy lands should not be planted with corn, rsucli lands aro best for grass and potatoes and often for other roots but corn can never be profitably raised in this part of the country on cold lands. Lorn is like an African and never suf fers with excessive heat. But every farm has warm lands on it and tben hould be selected for corn. If cold and wet land is planted with corn we admit its growtn will be so slow at first, withcait manure in the bill, that its roots will not xtend sufficiently to bo benefitted in due season by the spread manure. It should start more vigorously if wo wih it to ri pen !ii season. By putting a handful of ashes, on each hill, os soon as the com is covered, wo ever lad to start it sufncientlv on a rcrii-siraril furrow, in any case where the land is suited to the crop. When it is not green-sward, or the soil has not much vegetable matter in it to be rotted by means of the lie in the ashc, we re ceived no very essential benefit from this ippbcation, the lie has nothing to oper ate on, and the other matter in tho ashes is too inconsiderable for a single handful to produce sensible effect. We are aware that corn looks prettiest and larger in June when it has had a shovel full of fine manure in the hill, pro vided the worms can kept asleep. And ufimit tlio crop t'umes suoner maturity when forced up m its first stages by this powerful incentive. Still there ;tre the most serious objectionis to the application of manures in this manner 11 we count the extra labor of spread ing and also putting in the hill, for both must be done or we obtain more stalks than corn, we shall find it costs us nearly double what it would to apply it in one mode only, for llie labor of spreading 40 loads on the acre is no greater than the spreading of 20. The heaps aro so nigh eacli other the ground is covered by throwing it only ball as far. So if we put it in the hill it is nearly as easy to put in a shovel lull as a hall siiovel lull. 'But unless the whole soil is rich, a shovel full in the hill will produce a large growth of stalks and but few ears. If the whole is rich then this large quantity is not wanted in the hill. If wo have lo loads of fine manure we can spread this on the surface, and commingle it com pletely with the soil of one acre by means ol the harrow-tins is less labor than lay m it out in the hill, and tho roots will get portion of it immediately, and as they extend they will find it all. Thus in almost all cases and wc have watched a thousand fields we get abet ter harvest by spreading on than by put ting in the lull. A trifle in the hilldoes no injury, but a shovel full is often a harbor for worms that get hold before the roots are large enough lo protect themselves. When all aio agreed that for future crops the land is far belter prepared in our mode than in tho other, should wc have no legardto the permanent improve ment ol the sou I In many towns near Boston, wo plant our lands with a view principally, to preparing them for grass again, and lor grass a far more prolita bio crop, we never want our manure to be left in bills or heaps. Wo want it to be incorporated with the soil. If Mr. W., should spread his fine ma nure along in the furrow a better mode than putting in the bill ho might possi bly use his Oornplanter to advantage though we doubt it. Wo hope ho will plant at least a small patch next summer in our modi! and we promise to come at short notice and snow linn how to hold the L'litvv.--L'ttltivajor LICE ON CATTLE. In February the lice will often drive cattle to a post to rub them oil'. Whelh er lice are the cause of poverty, or pov erty is the cause ol lice in cattle, is still mooted question. But we generally find them more numerous on poor catllo than on fat ones. It may be these animals find tlie maxim true, " The nearer the bone the sweeter the meat." No unguents, or tobacco, or washes of any kind need to be used to destroy these vermin, if we take care, occasionally, to sift on them dust of any kind that is fine enough to enter in between tho hairs to the skin. -Ashes will answer the purpose and they inTiy always bo had. Burned loam may bo used by those who fear that ashes may provo too strong and bring oil' tbo hair. SHEEP TICKS. Sheep should be examined at this sea son of the year and the ticks be invited to some other habitation. When tho warm weather comes on they are excessively innoying to the flock, and like lice m attlo they are found most numerous where we should suppose there was tho least blood to be drawn. Pufi's of tobac co smoke and pinches of snufl" will kill them. And this proves they are not so tough as some other animals. These animals should have so much litter that thev mav burv themselves in it in cold nights. Thev will require the less food. Young farmers, just begining, must not keep too niaiiv bogs. Thev ire gormandizers and generally run us in debt if wo purchase food for them. 1 he breeders must not be shifted from pen to pen just bolero getting into the straw. And tuev must not be led soon afler. They will do better for days with out feed than when fed to excess. As milk is the diet for small pigs they should not be born when wo have none for them.

BIG G UN MISsTnG. We like to laugh at a good joke, espe cially if it be a political one, for the poli ticians of our country have become so soured towards each other that they sel dom use so harmless w eapons as jokes in their warfare. It seems that last Friday afternoon, tho Democrats of Northampton, got up a jubi lee supper on account of the election of Governor Morion, and determined to an nounce their tops's and show llieir joy by the boyish practice of firing cannon. With much labor and ban! digging, they succeeded in making a path, and backing up their sled to the place cf deposit; they opened the doors when lo and behold no cannon was there ; every thing was in order but the cannon, that was missing, and no search could make it forth coming; so that the supper had to pass ofl'in silence barring tho squealing made by the 'stri ped pig,' which we believe, is always a noisy guest at political suppers.

The Chair remarked that Mr. Baucii could not with draw the motion by proxy, but must mako the motion himself. Mr. B.niu then pioposed himself to withdraw the motion. Mr. Fbinviir.u insisted that these nu lions were out of order ; that the roll must first be gone through with, and the question decided ; and then, if the member from Hawkins c!uo to ask to be reinstated, ho could do so. The On.un directed tho Clerk lo proceed with the call, which order was promptly complied with, and the leave asked was granted by a oto of 41 lo 27.
