TREE PLANTING. Dcab Star : Permit me through ths medintn of your oolamns to address a few words to those who lire on the open prairie, on the accruing to tnem from planting groves of forest trees on their premises. The first benefit to be derived from a grove %- on the prairie is shelter from the eutting winds whioh blow so keenly over the bleak wintry waste of a prairie oountry. It is well kpown to all who nave moved from the woodad hillsides of the Eastern and Middle Btatee, how maoh harder to endure the winters are on the open prairiea of the West, even while the thermometer marks a higher temperature. This is caused by the wind, which comes entirely unbroken from the ioy summits of the Rocky Mountains. Now let a person who is traveling over the prairie in the winter in the * _ *T A ?*- ?*? iocc "i nor wefier. jusc come mio iae soeitar of a few bushes, it may be thev are leaflew, but aa toon aa he paaaes them he ia made awara of the benefit of even a poor ahelter, ^ and can appreciate the comfort a person would take in doing hia chores in the shelter of a grove in a stinging cold day in winter. The second benefit ia the timber for domestic purpoeea. To many this is a matter of great intereat, and they would plant treea, only they think that the treea would be of no benefit to them, or else they put it off in a dilatory way till some more convenient season, which in m?st cases never arrivea. Now f a there are treea that will thrive and grow on Ttrtlria a/t 1 ama?in??1 w fait T V*wa a ovu uixa itigij ACWV. A u?? o ooou cottonwood set out about two feet high, grow in three years to be from 16 to 20 feet nigh, end from three to fir* inches in diameter at the ground. Now a few of such fast growing trees, to shelter and induce a more thrifty growth in the slow growing hard woods, such as the oak and maple, would soon make a beautiful grere, from which fencing and lirewood could be get in limited quantities, and in a few years in more abundance. The third consideration that should induce 1 the dweller on the prairie to plant trees, is the benefit of the fruit to both man and beast. A Amont the nut-bearinff tree* indimnona rn A moat prairie countries are the walnuts, black and white, and th*?hell-bark hickories; the chestnut will grow tti'bom* situations, and I doubt not, with proper eare and shelter, it will everywhere; and who will overlook the pleasure to be derived around the family Dearth on a winter evening over a few bat. ternats, walnuts, or the estimable chestnut. Then the aeorna and the nuts of the bitter (hickories will, if given due prominence in a farm grove, fatten poultry, and feed growing awin* as well aa corn, whila tk?v m*v <r>thap theao themselves. The fourth consideration ia to screen an orchard and garden from tb? wind and iqd V The gTeat troable in raising fruit treat in this country ia tha exposed aituationa either to the heat of tha wn or to the oold winds, or both In the warm days of spring the sun poors his * rays diraotly on them and starts tha sap; next day a bitter northwest wind fraeses them up, bursts tha sap Teasels, and thus blights, and e rant sail y kills tha tree; whereas, had it been sheltered from both inflaenaas by other trees, tk.. M.1J at. ? -* '* ? iuv/ ?rv?iu tiBT? ao|)i> fcuo avros njl Of ID# sun from it, and also the oold wind, protecting tbem from spring changes, laomir heats, and tb? fruit from the e?rly froeta of antamn. We also know bow hard it is to raise early vegetable# in an exposed si'uation; to oo? inee anj on* of the benefit to be derived from a grove on early vegetation, let him oompare tha wild plants on tha open prairie with thoee at the edge of eoma grove, where he will find them half hidden by old leave*, ~ gf%wing finely, while the others are hardly atarted. There are also many vegetables riv which grow much better in a sheltered sitn ation, oat especially is the shelter of a grove , v??ii au>o 4vii canj TOj^OllUlM. The fifth conaideration ia, that these groves will be a great benefit to fatare generations. This idea to a benevolent man ia one that will have considerable weight; he does not liva entirely for self, but ia willing, nay anxious to do aomething useful in the world; and one of the moat useful is to start groves of beautiful and useful trees on the prairies of joar neighborhood, directly, by your own hands, on your own farm; indirectly, by yoor example and sulrice, and if necessary, your help alao, on those of your neighbors. iThe sixth consideration is to add to the baautiea,the pleasures, and the attraetiona of home. What attraction is there, can there be, in a home which only contains the four walla at right angles to each other, and on a Una with aome principal meridian, or correction line, nothing to shelter it from the driving winda nar scorching ana; but aurround it wtth trees, make it pleee of oomfort, of raet. I and peace, and your children and dependents will feel the blessed influence, and instead of fleeing to the city to find employment behind the merchant's counter, or in the lawyer's ofice, they will be more likely te remain at home, and follow the business of an agriculturist, which is the most virtuous, as well as i ? that on whioh all others depend, on whioh the prosperity of the whole oountty is mainly uilt. Lahbda. * ROMANCE Or AN OLD COUPLE. The following somewhat remarkable narratire is related by a Western lady, now on a 5 visit to this city from Mariposa. She is her* self a character. She haa crossed the plains twice?first in 1849, during whioh her husband perished?and is the first American lady who returned to the East by way of the Isthmus of Panama. She is a genuine heroine, a fine specimen of stout hearted Western womanhood, and her adventures in tha >iMa nt tv. . * unpeopled Weit have keen numerous and exciting If the good folk* of Mariposa have misted a lad y from their neighborhood, they are hereby apprised that she is comfortably located at the boarding-boose of Mrs. Nesbit, on the corner et Montgomery and Sater streets, and will aot return to the mountains until Holmes, of the Geaetfc, eeaees to harrow the hearts of Mtripoea mothers by calling their little babies ' brats." Well, while the train of whieh this lady was a member, was encamped at a point on the Humboldt, where the Lessen trail interseets the Canon trick ef travel, she visited the tent of an elderly eoaple and one child?a daughter of fourteen or fifteen years. The old lsidy was sitting on a pile of blankets under the canvas, encouraging a most determined attaok of the "sulks," while the masculine head of affairs had planted himself on his wooden tongue, and wss sucking his pipe as leisurely as though he expected to remein there forever. A single glance developed the fact that there was a difficulty in that little train of one 'a ^ wagon and three persons, and that it had attained a point of quiet dee Deration bevond tfc* (reach of peaeefUl adjustment. Three days before tbej bed pitched their toot at the forks of the road, end ee they eoold not agree upon tho route by which to enter California, there they had remained The husband ex proceed a preferenoe for the Careen road, the wife for the Lessen, aad neither wonld yield The wife declared she wonld remain there all winter, the husband laid be aheuld be pleaeed to lengthen the sojourn through the rammer folio wfag. On the morning of the fourth day, (he wife broke a ralien lilenoe of 36 hoars by proposing a division of the property, whieh consisted of two yoke of cattle, one wacoa. eamv furniture. I ft small qaantlty of proriaioM, and $11 in ail* Tir The propoaal wu aooeptad, and forthwith tha "Blunder" wu divided, learing thft wagon to Uk* old man, tod tha daughter to tho Biothar. Tba 1 at tor axohaagad with * neighboring train tha oftttla belong h)g to her, i flax a pony and pack a*ddla, and piling tho 4Mgh?r and bar portion of tha diridod apoll pon tho aairnal, aha reeolntoiy atartod aoroea tho deftart $y tho Laaain trail, whilo tho ol+ , aaaa rflontly yokod tho eatUa *ad took tho other rooto. Vl Singular ft* thla may aaom, it ia nerortbeleee , - true. It is among the many occurrences of stranger than fiction. Of oourse both parties reached California in safety. We say, "of course," for it is scarcely possible that any obstacle, death Included, oould hare seriously interfered witb the progress of stnbbornnees so sublime. Arriving at Sacramento with her daughter, the old laay readily found employment-?for women were lees plenty than now? and subsequently opened a boarding-house, and in a few years amassed a handsome fortune. Two years a*o she went to San Francisco, and the daughter, whose eduostion hsd aot been aegleeted, was married to one of our most substantial citisens. And what became of the old man ? The wife had not Men or heard of him (inee thej parted on the Humboldt. They had lived happily together aa man and wife for year*, and she sometimes reproached herself for the wilfulness, whieh separated them after so lone a pilgrimage together through this rough life. But he wm not dead. We oaanot trace hia oourse in California, however. All tbat we know of him id^that fortune had not amiled apon him, and that for years he had toiled without hope. Finally, feeling aoaroely able to longer wield the pick and shovel, he visited San Francisoo, in the hope of obtaining employment better adapted to his wasted strength. For three months he remained idle after arriving here, and then for want of occupation became the humble retailer of peanuts and orangee, with his entire stock of traffic in a basket upon his arm. This was ab?ut six months azo. A few weeks sinoe. in Dassinsr ?he open Joor of a oottsge in the southern part >f the city, he observed a lady in the hall, and lopped to offer his merchandise. As he stepped upon the threshold, the lady approached, and the old man raised his eyes and dropped the basket. And no wonder, either, for she was his wife?his "old woman!" She recognised him, and throwing up her arms in amasement, exolaimed : "Great Qod ' John, is thai you?" " All that is left of me," replied the old man. With extended arms they approached. Suddenly the old lady'soountenance changed, and she stepped back. "John," said she, with a look which might bave been construed into earnestness, " bow did you find the Carson road?" "Miserable, Sakey, miserable," replied the old man, "fall of sand and alkali." " Then I was right, John?" she oontinaed, inquiringly " You were, Sukey," be replied. "That'a enough?" said she, throwing her arms around the old man's neck; "that's enough, John;" and the old eouple, to strangely sundered, were again united. Both are living with their daughter on Second street.? San Francisco Mirror. THE MACKKREL BRIGADE ON A RECulf ?OliliAMt?. / FROM WASKWOTOJr. Editor T. 'jr.: Wben Britain first at Tupper's command, my boy, aroce from oat the sure main, this wu ber obarter, her charter of the land, that Britain* never, never, shall be slaves?as long as they have a ehanoe to treat everybody else like niggers. Suffer me also to remark, that, Britannia needs no bulwarks, no towers along the steep; ber maro^ is o'er the mountain wave, ber home is on the deep?where she keeps up her neutrality by smuggling contraband Southern oonfederaoies, and cussin' like a Presbyterian chaplain when Uncle Sam's ooean pickets overhaul her. British neutrality, my boy, reminds me of a chap I onoe knew in the Sixth Ward. Two olid men, who didn't get drunk more than once a day, were running for alderman, and tbey both made a dead set on this obsp ; bat they hadn't any money, and he couldn t see it. "See here, old tops" says he, "I'll be a neutral this time : eo no in Dor*i?? "' Well, my boy, the election cam* off, and neither of the old tope wm elected. No sir! Now, who do yoa rappoae was elected ? The Neutral Chap, my boy! Mad aa hornets with the hydrophobia, the two old to pa went to aee him, and aaya they: ''Confound toot pioture, didn't you promiae to be neutral ?" The ohap dipt hia noae into a oooktail, and then aaya he blandly : "I was neutral, old Peraimmonaea. I only went to fifty Demoorata, and got 'em to rote for me. Then, to be neutral, I had to get fifty rtf rtfk? f A1 I Dl 1. t? LI! j - wmwi i?uoi m iiioot Aipuuiiotus CO UU the Mint thins. Then I Toted twelve times for myself, and went in." It ?u a very beautiful out, my boy, and the old tops were only heard to utter?they were only known to exclaim?they were barely able to arttoulate?that neutrality didn't pay. Early yesterday morning, my boy, Company B, Regiment 3, Mackerel Brigade, went down toward Ceotreville, on a reoonnoisance in foree, uDder Captain Bob Shorty. The capUia is a highly-intellectual patriot, and don t get his sword twisted between his legs when he carries it in his hand. He led the company through the mod like a Christmas due a, until they eame to a thicket in whieh something was seen to ntors. "Halt, you Urriers!" says Captain Bob Shorty, in voioe trembling with bravery. "Form yourselves into a square acoording to Hardee, while I stir-up this here bush. There's something in that bush," says be "and it's _?i? a a <1 ?? - eimer me oouioern uomoaeracy, or aome otner cow." The captain then leaned up to a tree to make him steady on hit pins. my boy, and rammed hia sword into the btuhea like a poker in a fire. Nebody hurt on our aide. What folioved, my boy, oan be eaaily teld. At an early hoar on the evening of the aame day, a solitary horseman might hare been seen approaching w ashington It?u Captain Bob Shorty, with bis bat caved in and a rainbow pontine under hi* left eye Ho went straight to the headquarters of the General of the Mackerel Brigade, and sayi be: '-General, 1'va reoonooitered in force, and found the enemy both nnxneriom and eantan karoo*." ' BaaaiifolM71 th* general, "but where i* your company?" "Well, bow,"' uja Captain Bob Shorty, "you'd hardly believe it; but the laet I mo of that ere eompany, ii was engaged in th* parsait of bappiuMt at th* rate of six mile* an hoar, with the rebel* at th* wrong end of the track.
