'Twas in my easy chair nt home, About a week ni-o, I sat ami pulled my h'sht cigar As uuaI,you inut know. I ni'isrd upon the Pilgrim flock Whose luck it was to land 1'pin nlmnst the only rock Ai.ionjj the Plymouth sand. In my miiKl's c c,l saw them leave Their weather-beaten bar Iletorc them ihe wintry wilds, Ilehind, rolled ocean dark. Alone tint little handful tood While savage foes lurked nidi, Their creed nnd watchword, "Trust in Rod And keep your powtlerdiy." Imagination's pencil then Tint first stern wintcrpahiteJ, When more linn hall their number died And stoutest spirits tainted, A lonr unbidden tilled one eye, .My smoke had filled the other ; t One see slinne sights nt such a lime, Which quite the senses bother. I knew 1 was alone but lo! (Let him who dare, deride me) I looked, ami, drawing up a chair, Down sat a man beside inc. His dress was nncient,aiid his niri Was somewhat strange nn j foreign He civily relumed my stare, And said "I'm Richard Warren !" "You'll find my name among the list Of hero, aire and mariyr, Who, in the .May llower's cabin, signed The lust New England charter.

"A 'It on." said 1, "I'll do my best To gi c yon iiilormatiou, Whether of private iikii jou ask, Or our renowned nation." Sajs he "'irt tell me what is that In yon compartment narrow. Which seems to dry my eyeball" up, And sjorch my very nnrrow.' j His finger poiuled to the grate is lid I "That's Lehigh Coal, Dag Irom Ihe earth" his head "It is, upon my soul!" 1 then look up a hit of stick, One end was black as night. An i rubbed it quick across thehearih, When lo, a cuJd-'ii light ! My guest drew back, uproIJcd his cyc, And "trove his breatti toe itch " What necromancy's that," he cried Quoth l,"A friclion match." Fpona pipe just overhead, 1 turned a litlle screw, When forth, with instantaneous flash, Thr v'strtuius oi luhtoiiig (lew. Uprose my guest; "Now heaven me save," Aloud he shouted, then "Is that hell tire 1" " "1'is gas," said I, "We call u hydrogen." Then forth into the fields we strolled, A train came thundering by Drawn by the snorting iion steed, .Swifici than eagles tly. Humbled the wheels, the whistle shrieked, Fur streamed the smoky cloud, L"ihoed the hill", the valleys shook, The llying tore-Is bowed. Down on Ins knees, with hands upraised In worship, Wairen I' ll "flreal is the Lord our (!od," cried he "lledoelh nil things well, "I'v e seen his chariots of fire, The horsemen, too, thereof; O.may I ne'er provoke his ire, Nor at liislhrealciiings scoff." "I!ie lip, my friend, rise up," said I, 'Your lerroisall are vain That was no chariot oi the sky, 'Twas the New York mail tiain." We stood within a chamber small Men came the news tit know, Fiom Worcester, Springfield and New York, Texas and .Mexico. It came it went 'ib'iit but sure He stared, smiled, bur-t nut laughing ; "What wilchcralt's that !" "it's what vvc call .Magnetic telegraphing." Once more wc stepped into the street ; Said Wnrieu,"'hat is that "Which moves along across tne way "Assoltly as a cull" "I menn the thing upon two legs, "With feathers on lis head "A monstious hump bclowits waist, "Large as a leather lied ; "Itbaslhe gift of speech, I hear ; "Hut sure it can't be human 1" ".Mvainiabte Iriend ," said 1, "That's what we. caliu woman."

Forthwith, my most veracious pen Wrote down w hat I had heard. And here, dressed up in doggeiel thyme, You have it, word lor word, From the. Cuhivntor. .Mnnngeinenl iu running. Tho present is a very appropriate season for a review of tho past operations of tho farm, and devising plans for llic future, livery one who has not yet reached tho highest summit nf inni. cultural iikill and perfection, will, doubtless, w"i-h in mailt; i.uiiiiiiii ...iiiiuh.-, uiwunis mat itesira blo accomplishment, and tho direction of the at tention of such to somo s)ints iu practice, may possibly bo nf value. The groat secret of success in all kinds of bus incss tho reason vvhy ono man becomes rich, whilo another remains poor is, mnnngtmrnt, A great deal i said of tho importance of cniiitl to liegin with, and it i indeed a very great con. venience. We kuuw many young farmers who utter frequent regrets that they havo not as fair a start as somo oilier. Ihpy could, as they think, do wonders ll tney nan plenty ol incuis. as a ginning. Hut regrets do not make money, l.vcry ono knows, that ho who docs not reap large prof its from a liberal capital furnished liitiii must ho a poor in.inairer indeed. The mill who has a hundred acres of land, with one thousand dol. I trs as additional capital, may farm much more satisfactorily than ho who has the same amount of hind encumbered vv ill a thousand dollars debt. Iloistwo thousand heller oil', and would lie much the worse manager of llic two, ifln" prohts Irom llm same land were not decidedly the greatest.. That man show-shis skill prc-cniincnlly, w ho, in stead of repining ntdillicullios, surmounts them; who, by superior management, keeps pace with his longer-pursued neighbor. "Ilut," say some, when they hear of nn im proved mode of farming, "wo know this is the best practice, tint tho fact i, wo cannot pursue it wo have not tho means and wo cannot get it we arc not rich enough to bo thnseconomical.'' Now, wc hope such persons will permit us to say, that this conclusion proceeds from a want of in formation, A certain young farmer's expendi tures am three hundred dollars yearly; and after the most rigid economy in cv cry particular, so lliat a single dollar could not bo" retrenched, he saves nothing. Another young farmer, with the same means precisely, anil with equal econ uny, saves two hundred jcarly. What is tho rea"on of this difference ! ' What the secret of tho t et ter success nf the latter ? The answer is a bit ter application of the same means, or, in otliT word", hotter munnm mini. Hence, tho at im parlance of understanding the host application of means. Wo will venture to uggc-t a few of t lie par ticulars in which we think many of our farmers might make more or less improvement some of llicm very decidedly so. One ol tho liM. of these i,a neat and judicious I lying out of their farms, lor economy in len cing ; for convenience of accc-s to ail their fields; and in such u manner, that each crop may occu py a- nearly as possible its own field, so as to admit of a good system of rotation. Hence, tho luiio or farm-road should ho good, hard, and lev el, to admit of ea"y cartage ol manure and crop", to and from all thu fields. Hence, loo. if tlto laud varies in quality, that of similar character iiiit-t be as nearly as practicable in the sainccncloiiro, so that meadow nnd pasture may comprise the wet, nnd arable laud llio dry, aniflho most sterile may ue iiiougni, separately, into an cnrirlnn rinnsolaid out. lhat cattle mav ch.

Mrs. Pipclrln's husband having broken his heart of the Peruvian mines, was good. It had a ricli sound. Ilcside. Air. Domliey was in a state almost amounting to consternation at tho idea of Paul remaining where he was ono hour after his removal had lieen recommended by the medical practitioner. It was a stoppage and delay upon the road the child must traverse, slowly nt the best, before the goal was reached. Their recommendation of Mrs. Pipchin had great weight withlum ; for ho know that they were jealous of tiny interfe rence with their charge, and ho never fora mo ment look it into account that they might be so liritous to divide a responsibility", nf which he had, as shown just now, his own established views. Ilroko his heart of the Peruvian mines, mused Mr. Dombey. Well ! a very respectable way of doing it, ' Supposing wo should decide, on to-morrow's inquiries, to send Paul down to llrightou to this lady who would gi with him ?' inquired Mr. Dombey after some reflection, ' 1 do n't think you could send tho child any where at present without Florence mvdear Paul,' returned his sister, he-it.iting. ' It 's quite an infituation with him. iPe's very young, you know, and h is his f nicies.'

' Wickam, of course. Wickam would be quite suflicient, I should sav,' returned his sister. ' Paul being in such hands as Mrs. Pipcliin's you could hardly send anybody who would boa farther check upon hrr. You would go down uiurs' lf once a week at least, of course.'

At last it was the children""- bed time, nnd af ter prayers they went to bed. A" little Miss Palikcy was afraid of sleeping alono in the dark, Mrs. Pipchin always mule a point of driving her up stairs herself, like a sheen ; and it was cheerful to hear Miss P.mkev moaning long .if- terwenl. in the least elimble cb inibor. and Mrs beach with Wickam who wa" constantly in tcar" and at about noon Mrs. Pipchin presided over omo early reapings.
