! TRANSPLANTING -f-RfeES; ;
The planting of frees, either firhit or for
est ones, though 4oo much neglected by
farrcers, is at timesj practiced by most ; of
them; should be so conducted as to not on
r preserve the tree jantl prevent j the entire
loss of the labor, but also to afford it the
best means of a rapid and healthy growth.
Trees may be transplanted at any lime while
the sap does not flov a period among de
ciduous trees marked by ihe fall of the leaf;
or from October to April, but the time gen
erally chosen is the spring. Convenience
however, should be consulted in Ithii mat
ter ; as from the full employment of time
in the ejpring oonl.b the operation is very
hastily and imperfectly performed, frequent
ly to the injury or loss of the1 tree
In transplanting trees, as Imuch of the
dirt should be retained on the roots as poaJ
sible. This will prevent the 'drying up the
small fibrous roots, which are indispensable
for the nounshment of the tree,! and will
in part prevent that shock which all plants
experience more or less, when removed tn
to a soil unlike thai in which they! have
grown. The long rioots, of course muet be
cut off, and in fruit jtrees, those that pene
irate directly downwards may be spared
without danger ; but in forest trees! the down
ward shoots should j be retained5 as fares
ft i i - i
they can be. It is Jthe custom with many
in setting out trees, to dig a small hole, but
far deeper than that in which the tree has
formerly stood. Into this bole the roots ere
forced by bending, twisting indUrcidihg,
the dead earth is shovelled in upon then-,
and the trees are leffl to their fate. Instead
of Us being a wonder that many, -perish tin
dersucb treatment, the Wonder is that any
survive.? " 1 j5 'j i"
When trees are to be transplanted, the
hole, for the reception of the j roots should
be broad but not deep, as no tree when it is
removed should be set in the earth more,
than a few inches deeper than it stood be
fore. The vegetable nould arid rich earth of
the surface should be' retained for pla ing on
the roots of the tree,' and 'if there; is a sufli
cieht supjdy of. the proper kind, it sbotild
be brought for the purpose. The tree should
be removed and placed in the spot dug for
it with as little disturbance or the rootlets
as may be, and without bending 4r bruising
of the largcr ones. Ilf these are loo long,
they may be cut off, but all should1 be; allow
ed to remain that the pit will receive. Af
ter being placed, the best earth should be
thrown on the roots land shaken lor geirily
pressed down till the? whole are covered! cy
the whole filled. J ; j
It is necessary thej the treej transplanted
should be kept firm n the earth untt( the
roots have time to fix themselves,: or it Will
be liable to be loosened and blown over by
the winds. To secure it in this respect,
some have recommended that d stake or
stakes should be driven into the ground, the
top inclining towards the treej to which the
body is to be tied. Others, arid the practice
is. generally followed among European plan
ters, place three strong sticks! in a trilngle
form across the roots of the tree, ihe angle'
Deing secured witn a flout wood book dnv
en into the ground, and thus jail shaking or
injury from winds is averted, M Knight
maintained that in transplanting 1 trees, the
greatest care should be taken to give them
not only the same kind of soil; but the same
exposure, and that the side of, the tree ex
posed to the sun before plantmg4ihould be
so placed as to receive its most direct! ravs
-afterwards. " 1 ' . -i!-"" 1 -j .'
THE ,USE, OF SULPHUR N PRfc
SERVING FROM-INSECTS, I
Is recommended by . Dr. Mease, in the
Domestic Eneylopedia. The recommen
dation is endorsed by the Editor' of the
Cultivator in his last number, lie stated
that dusted upon grapes, in the grape house,
t hey have prevented niildey upon the fruit.
14 It is efficacious in. the open ground, till
the sulphur is: washed or blown foff. For
many years, we have lost most of our early
cabbages by a maggot whichj prayed upon
the stem under ground. By: mixing sul
phur with th grout in . which the roots of
the plant! are, dipped before ; planting, the
evil has been wholly prevented :and if the
lants are plenged qeep in the trout, ef
to v-,aj the base of; the leaf stems, they
protected from the grub, i If scattered
n the rows in young cabbages and s ra
e before or after they are , taken up, it
Jd probably be eGcacious in protecting
tops end bottoms. Nms England

I ADVICE TO MEN IN DEBT. f
1 j Ascertain the whole state of your affairs.
Learn exactly how much you owe. Be
nt5t guilty of deceiving yourself. You may
thus awaken suspicions of dishonesty, 'when
your intentions were far otherwise.
Deliberately and fully make up your
mind, that come what will, you .will prac
tise no concealment, or trick, which might
have the appearance. of fraud. Openness
and candor command respect amongst all
Remember that no man is completely
ruined among men, until his character is
gone. r ; ;
i Never consent to hold ts your own one
farthing, which rightfully belongs to others.
As you are at present in ciicumstances of
great trial and as many eyes are upon you,
do nothing rashl) If pu need advice,
consult only a few. Let them be disinter
ested persons of the most established repu
tation. . ' ; ,
f OBer frequent and fervent prayer to Al
mighty God. If you have, by any fault of
jpur own, been brought into your present
embarrassments, humbly ask forgiveness of
God and hope in his mercy.
1 Beware of feelings of despondency.
Give not place for; an hour to useless and
cherrating melancholy. Be a man.
Reduce your expenditures to the lowest
nlissible amount. Care, not to figure as
jithers around you J
I Industriously pursue such lawful and
Hmesl arts of industry as are left to yon.
Aln, hour's industry will do more to beget
cheerfulness, suppress evil rumors, and re
trieve your affairs than a month's moan
trig If you must - stop business, dp it soon
enough to avoid the just charge of an at
tejmpt to involve your unsuspecting friends.
1 Learn from your present difficulties the
utter vanity of all earthly things.
I NOBLE SENTIMENT.
I After General Harrison, wiih the North-.
western army, had destroyed 'he Indian villages
frjim which the ruthless hordes of savages had
issued which murdered our men at the River
Raisin, he issued a proclamaiion to his army ou
te 2d of January", 1S13, giving details of his
killed and woundod, and exhorting his soldiers
toTriercy on the vanquished foe. He says : T
j It is with the sincerest pleasure that your
general has heard that the most punctual obedi
ence was paid to his orders ;snot only in sanng
the women and children of the enemy, bot !in
sparing all the warriors who ceased to-resist ;
afid that, even when vigorously attacked by the
eiemy, the claims of mercy prevailed over ev
ery 6ense of their own danger, and this berbic
band respected ihe lives of their prisoners
iThe General belierernhat hnmanity and troe
bra veiy are inseperable. The rigid rules of war
may sometimes, indeed, make a severe retalia
tion necessary j but the advantages which at
tend a frtquent recuirence to it are uncertain
and not to be compared f0 the blessing which
Providence ceo not fail to shed upon The effort
of. the Christian soldier who is 'in battle a lion,
but, the battle once ended, in mercy a la rob.'
Let an account of the murdered innocents be o
pVned in ihe records of Heaven against our ene
miest alone. The American Soldier will follow
ihe example of his Government, and neither the
jword of tha one will be raised against the help
less or the fallen, nor the gold of the other paid
for the scalp oft a massacred enemy."
I Such sentiments show the inherent goodness of
Geo. Harrison's hearr. The vicrory he achiev
ed told to ihe woild bismilitary skill,& his fear
less con rages wbilefais proclama t mn manifested
his wise bnevoIehce. Well would it hav heei
i( the same lenity bad been shown to the Indi
ans in other parts rt our countrv ; but anmhr
and a con:rary spirit was exercised by 01 her ge
rierals in ther contests with the Indians, and
i opposite results are palpably visibl-. The North
western Indians, whom Harmon subdued,' hocgh
far more numerous and warlike, have trusted us,

the 7ai, which someti.'s
over a considerable portion of tho !
and which is so transparent, thai t!
may be seen through it. The tail 1
directed to that part of the heave: ?
is opposite to the son, and inrrea?r

computations, the solid nucleus, or rr :

comets which have. occasionally been r.

ets in every direction, there is a'pnssL.
that some of them might strike again:,

were this to happen, the const qucr. -would
be awful beyond description. I:
we may rest assured that the Almighty !

Of this, however we. may rest, assured, t!
they were not created in vain ; that t:,

and that wherever he has exfit

Such is a general outline of the c,t':r
