While on mj lonely beat about an hoar ago, m light tread attracted my attention, and on looking ap I beheld one of Secesh's picket* standing before me. 44 Stranger," *ay* he, "you remind me of my frandmotner, who expired before I was born, at thi* unnatural war ha* miH* na *n?mi?a and I malt shoot you Give me a chaw terb acker." Ha *u a juung man, my boy. Id the prima of lifa, aad descended from the First Families of Virginia. At least that's what I understood by tha First Families of Virginia. I looked at him, and says I? " Let's compromise, my brother." "Nerer !" sajrs he; *4 the 8outh is fighting for her liberty, her firesides, and the pursuit or happiness, and I desire more respeotfully to welcome you with bloody .hands to a hospitable grave. '* ?' Stand off ten paces," says I, " and let's see whose name shall come before the coroner first." He took his place and we fired simultaneously. 1 heard a nail go whistling by a barn about a quarter of a mile on my right, and when the smoke eleared away I saw the Secesh picket approach me with an awful expression of woe on hiaotherwiM riirtv AAnntnaiu* " Soldier," s*ys he, "*u there anything in nay head before you fired '" " Nothing," says I, " save a few harmless ins eeta." "I speak not of them," says he. "Was there anything trutdt of say head ?" 44 Nothing, says I. " Well," says he, "just listen now " lie shook his head mournfully, and I heard something rattle in it. "What is that?" I exclaimed. "That," said he, "is T-ur bullet, which has penetrated my skull, and is rolling around in ? my brain. I die happy, and with an empty etomach, but there is one thing I should like to see before I perish for my country. Hare yoa a quarter about you?" Too much affected to speak, I drew a ooin IR from my pooket and handed it to him. The dying manolutcked it oonrulsirely, and stared t it fererisfcly. " This," said he. " is the first quarter I hare \ L seen since the fall of Sumter, and had I I % wounded you, I should have been totally unable tn hk(? von ? nn?r1 or Ah beautiful it is! how bright, how exquisite, and good for four drinks! But I have not time to say all I feel." The expiring soldier then laid down his gan. hung his cap and overcoat on a branch of a tree, and blew his nose. Ho then died. And there I stood, my boy, on that lonely beat, looking down upon that fallen type of manhood, ana thinking how singular it was he had forgotten to eive me back my quarter. The sight and the thought so affected me that I was obliged to turn my back on the corpse, and walk a little way from it. When I returned to the spot, the body was gone. Had it gone to Heaven? Perhaps so, my boy?perhaps so; bat I haven't seen my quarter since. Rain fer Tree Planters. The following rulea are ao self-evident to men of experience, that they seem alofost like axioms; and yet they are continually broken by novices in setting oat orchard and fruit m A OK ? 1. If the root* of a tree are Crozes oat of the ground, and thawed again in contact with air, the tree is killed. 2 If the froien roots are well buried, filling all cavitiea before thawing anj at all, the tree ia uninjured. 3 Manure ahould never be placed in contact with the roota of a tree, in Betting it oat, but old finely pulverized earthy oompoat answers well 4. Trees ahould always be set about as deep as they atood before digging up. 5. A small er moderate sized tree at the time of transplanting will usually be a large bearing tree, sooner than a larger tree set out at the same time, and which is checked neceearily in growth by removal. ft. Constant, clean, and mellow cultivation is abeolutely necessary at all times for tbesaceeesful growth of the peach tree, at any age; it ia aa neoeaaary for a young plum tree, but not quit* so much ao for an old ene; it is nearly aa eaaential for a young apple tree, but much lasa ao for an old orchard, and still lata neoaa aary for a middle aged cherry tree. 7. To guard againit mice in winter with per* feot auooeu, make a am all, compact, amooth earth mound nearly a foot high, around the retem of eaeh young orchard tree. 8. Warm valleys, with a rioh aeil, are mere liable to eauae destruction to tree* or their eropa hy cold.than moderate hills of more expeeure, and with lees fertile soil?the oold air aefelling at the bottom of valleys daring the sharpest frosts, and the rioh soil making the trees grow too late in autumn, without ripening and hardening their wood 9. The reett ef a tree extend nearly as far o? eaeh side as the hight of the tree; and heaoe te dig it up by cutting a circle with the spade half a foot in diameter, cuts off more than nine-tenths of the roots; and to apade a -i?-a - * iuu? cuoio *wgi * young tree Dot one quarter u far m tli* roou extend, and call it "cultivation," is like Falstaff" man claiming spurs and shirt oollar for a oomplete ?uit 10. Watering a traa in ary weather affords but temporary relief, and often doe* more harm than good by emetine the surface. Reaping the surface constantly mallow is much mora valuable and important?or if this cannot be done, muleh well. If watering is ever done from neceaiity, remove the top earth, pour in the water, aad then replace the earth?the n muleh, or heap the surface very mellow. 11. Shrivelled trees may be made plump before planting, by covering top* and all with earth for several days. 12. Wataring trees before they expand their leavea, should not be done by pouring water at the roots, but by keeping the bark of the stem and branches frequently or constantly moist. Trees in leaf and in rapid growth,' may ba watered at the raota, if dona properly. 13. Young trace may be manured to great advantage by spreading manure over the roots as far as they extend, or over a cirole whose radius ia equal to the height of the traa, in autumn or early winter, and spading this manure in, in spring. 14. Never sat young trees in a grass field, or among wheat, or other sewed grain. Clovee is still worn, as the roots go deep, and rob the tree roou. The whole surfaoe should b? clean and osllow; or if any crops are (offered, they should ba potatoes, carrots, turnips, or other low boed crops.?Country G*ntisma*. 11 CUriilTUMlMI. fTbii nobis fall flower tn*j be taken up and pat into a large pot or tab, after its bloaaoma re expanded, if a little oare U taken to retain ii tnanj of the fibre* aa possible; indeed, it easilj retains a large mass of the roots and fibres, and if these are pat into a pot or tab large enoagh to hold them entire, and watered well, the plant is enabled to stand the reaM>T?l.
