BURLINGTON FREE PRESS, FRIDAY MORNING, JUNE 4, 18 47. How bol tn put this Smithsonian Institution In progress ; to give it definite character and flows ; to .lnpc its lino of march us Congress has either said or intimated that It should tic, mid ti let the testamentary purpose hi apparent In nil tta nn.ts.iitf.,. t..... ..

There wore, I may almost say necessarily, and of course there were, on this cardinal point great diversities of sentiment and construction. as there had been during the maslor.y debate which prefaced the pa$.igc of llm law. What constituted " knovvlcib'e " in the sen-e of Smith oil's bequest ? In wli.it uunner shall its " ' ercaso'' bo provided for? Ity what methods hall ltd " diffusion " lie sought ?

Thoy began by profoundly studying tlie subject in its several 'aspects. Thoy cherished with ardor, nnd discussed witli freedom their respective pto jeets. The conllicts of upright uiiiids, however, rarely fail to end in mutual collection and com promise; and thus scarcely a sitijjle measure was adopted except by unanimous eencurrcr.ee. The regents hive submitted their labors and conclusions to the country tho report of their proceedings was July undo for legislative super vision, and in iv they not ronli lontly liopo for (what they know nothing of their's. can succeed without) the co-operation and sympathy ot the American people J There are t-omo results to be anticipated from tho success of the institution which, though not ss obvious as others, arc tiovcit!iolcs such as no sound American heart can wholly disregard, and which it may not lie mi-placed to glance at. That wo shall fulfil, in the pio-cnce of watchful civilization, an admitted obligation, ami that the common mind of our country, on which tho per manency of Its liberties so closely depends, will bo exalted and invigorated, are considerations abnndantly strong to rally us all to the manly effort. No greater shame, and no greater loss can readily bo incurred thin would bo conse quent on 'ignoble failure. Hut may it not be justly said that tho mild and gentle influence of tliis establishment will stroii-jllion and lighten the cords of our Union, and give to the capital I of that Union a new charm, witli greater sta bility ? The Smithsonian design is, as I have already j suggested, a peculiar one. It cannot, as a scene of educational training, have any pit-tensions or , provoke any jealousies. It is "no rival of the many admirable schools which adorn the respec tive States, and can in no to inner intrude upon their spheres of action. Vet it will bo a factory ' and a store-house of knowledge accessible to all i the agents of this vast Confederacy its execu tive, legislative, judicial, civil, military, foreign, and domestic agents. It will bj tho' recipient, too, of such fruits of the labors and such aerpii sitions of tho enterprise anil travels of these agents as may contribute to illustrate, and ex plain, and facilitate tho public service, or to pile precision and vigor to its operations of every kind. As a rc-ourcc and a sanctuary for intel lect, the institution can hardly fail to become an object of patiiotic pride and attachment, and must bo felt as a persuasive inducement to pre serve inviolate tho convtittition, with who.-o fate its own in idcntilied. I will not dwell upon its special claim to tho fostorinz kindness ami hospitality of this me tropolis. Her citizens doubtless appreciate that justly. By designating Washington for its local habitation, the generous testator has summotied the intelligence, tho courtesy, and the philan thropy of her inhabitants as 'auxiliaries to his beneficent project. Already it It is added to her social scene a lived star whose biuty per vides the scientific, world; and ere long this rising temple coiHoor.ttod to the highest nf hu man pursuits, Koivt.i:iirsE, will giie Ire-h at- ti.-,!n.t nn.l lirmtiaA to iCl llCf-lili'.

Mr. "..

Wo al-0 understand that the gentlemen refvr- reil tn will shortly vMt all the important town Hong the route, and tho line will be piob.tblv se lected with reference to the importance of the places through which it is to pass, and tho amount of subscriptions obtained. If these arc mado in a prompt manner, and with a lilicr il spirit, we liny expect to see the lino diverging from Whitehall to Castletrm, liutland, Ilrandou, .MiUdlelmry, ergcniies, Iluilinglon, StAlban- anJ liighgate, as prominent points. Certainly so, if the enterprising people of these town's givo their support and patronage to the project. v o unilorst-iml tho capital required, includ ing tho Patent Right, as well as tho co-t of cons-irticlion, everything completed ready lor opcmtiou,wi!l Ihj hut about .1i,0C(i.a sum which miy bo easily raised, wo should suppose, at ei ther of tho plaie named.

It will bo remembered that our Selectmen were explicitly "Instructed," at tho last March Meeting, to cause all Fences, Door-stops and Piazzas, that encroach upon the established Highways oftho town, to be removed "as soon as may be."

Wo observe that Mr. Pomeiica-, like a good citizen ns ho i, is reducing the dimensions of tho door-yard in front of his pleasant residence, in obedienco to the expressed will of "ihe Peo plo." The alteration will unquestionably im prove tho external appearance of tho street, though it caiinol fail to be.a painful duly to sur lender shrubbery and trees, that add so much to private and public pleasure and comfort, to tho mgs that are permitted to perambulate the vil lage in tho full freedom of unrestrained nature! As Mr. Darby emphatically remarked to us: " Vuss loose hnirs .'

I'or the I'tcc 1V--H. Mr. l.ntTon ' I have of late made some inquiries concerning Plows, for the purpose of satisfying injieli'm to the relative merits ol" various patterns. .My present pur pose is not to go into a detail of ihe menu ofthe inutiy Plows which, at different times, h ive been In use, or are in me now I only wish to mve the result of my investigations, nnd that in as few words as possible. A good plow should be easy to hold, ensy to draw, nnd should leave the soil in the best po-sible condition for subsequent tillage. A plow that runs steady will always hold easy. Thai steadiness of motion may be uuiauicii, it is iieciltul that the line of draft mid the line of resi-tance be parallel, and in the same perpen dicular. It is a parcn. in lir-t sislit that plows c-oii-strutted alter the common patterns are not on this principle ; for the land-side deviates considerably from a parallel with ihe beam, being inclined, nt the point, landwards. Tllis" rnnnin" ,n l.n.,1" nf tl. 1.....I . . , .' is counteracted in a measure by the draft Mug in a contrary mreclion. 1 lus mu-t cause great unsteadi ness of motion, unless the resistnnee U t-rCtl,. form.

In soil sufficiently dry for plow ing well it (seemingly with the lenst possible cxjieiisc of draft) turns completely over, nnd most perfectly mel lows the soil, nml disarranges its particles, thereby in ducing active feriui-iitatiou ami decomposition of the crude vegetable matter in the soil, nnd elaborating fresh food for plants, perhaps latlhcr than is attained by any common harrow ing ; although harrowing after wards may be well, except tin giouud is very biable nnd even ; in which case the roller is sufficient lo pre pare it for planting. Thu stdf-aharpeners, however, arc not quite so strong for rough usage ; but in careful hands, nre much the cheaK-sl, in the long run, for free soils, particularly in sandy soils, saving much expense for new points or shares."

Sitting quietly in our office, apart from the jar ol the outer world, on Tiicsdiy evening last, we were suddenly startled by a combination of noises which was evidently made up of all varieties of musical utterances, from the treble yell of some thing less than a million of excited juveniles, (who always i;ie bad a passion for martial pornp, over since Xoah " marched " into tho Ark.) to the naked hiss that is thumped out of big drums. Iletvveen the-o discordant extremes could lie faintly heard the alllictcd harmonies of the hautboy, tho dulcimer, and " the dorian sound Of flues and solt recorders." On reaching Iho street a strange procession, like as of the gods of uu unknown mythology, was emerging into the dubious: twilight that cnnie from mrthly lamps, and slowly departing ngiin, like the ghosts in Macbeth, into the thick sur rounding darkness ; " inonstriiin horrciiduni, iugeus, iufbmie, CrJi Ininen nilcmi'tum !"
