AtiRICULTUSlL. Amoag the implored breede of thoep DOW beiog 80 exteuire]/ niaed to this ooontrj, the Dowaa, m> celled from e oertein portion of Englend from wbieh thi7 here moetly emeneted, the Oxford! hold e high rank in their aetire homes, whilst here the Soothdowns end the Bhropehiree ere more of the feroritw of the Dowds femiliee. Aooording to Baodelt. the Oxfords were first ia- trodooed ioto the United States bj Bioherd 8. Far. of Ljnn. Utas., end Williem 0. Rires, of Viiginie, who selected end imported tmr sheep together, some twentr-fire years ego. Thoagb good reports here oome from eneh importetions is here been made, the Oxford does not seem to bare takes a etrong bold upon the fancy of Ameri- ean breeders. This hae more likely reeulled from the feot that admirers of tho long-wool, as well ae the admirers of middle wool animsls, prefer the more distinct rarieties of those breede; for oertein the Oxford has many eharacter- ietioa commending it to the faror of Aoerioan breeders. It has sise of oar- cam and a prolificacy that insures lambs for an early market, as the weights girsD below folly testify. It has a length of fieeoe that insnrea for the wool clip the attention of buyera who require long wool. The body is well roDDded, legs abort, and, in its natire locality, evinces a hardiness andadapta- tioD for profitable feeding UDBurpaseed by any of Ibe English types. Good Eoglish authority gires the following statement of points: 1. Dead weight of an average lot of lambs at three months would ^ from 32 to 40 pounds; at six months, from 48 to 66 pounds; at soven months, 64 to 72 ponnds; at twelve months, 80 to 96 ponsdi. 2. The weight of ewes at 18 to 24 months, 80 to 104 ponnds; of wethers, 88 to 112 pounds; of rams, 160 to 200 ponnda 8. The weight of full-mouthed ewee, 80 to 100 pounds; two and three-sheer nuns, in working order, 160 to 200 pounds. 4. Wethers are generally sold to the butcher, ebom, twelve to fifteen months old, weighing 60 to 112 pounds—the average abont 88 ponnds. 6. Eves produce their first lambs at 24 months old (some few breeders put ting them when nine or tan months old). They are proliflo and excellent mothers. 6. The mutton is superior and oom- mands a high price in the London markets; there is a large proportion of lean meat as compared with tho fat, oompariog favorably with the mutton from any other bleed of sheep. 7. The weight of fleece of twelve months’ growth of ewes is 7 to 8 pounds; of rams, at 15 to 18 montbsold, 10 to 15 pounds; of wethers, 13 to 16 months. 6 to 14 pounds. Wstler’s Taec The following anaodote of the founder of Methodism nan, we baUeve, never been published. It reeohes ns from a imstworthy aonroe, and it fllnstratea in a remarkable manner the mingled taet and piety of that eminent man. Although Wealey, like the Apoetlea, found I hat his prea^ngdidnotgMtly affeot the mighty or the noble, atill he numbered some familiee of good poal- tion among bis followers. It was at the home of one of tbeae that the fnoident here recorded took plaoa. Wesley had been preaching, and a daughter of a neighboring gentleman, a girl reaurka- ble for her DMUty bad bean profoundly impreoaed his sxhortatiou. After tbs sermon Wesley was uvlted to this gentleman's house to Innobeon, and with himself ooe of his preachers was entertained. This predther, like many of the class at that tine, was a man of plain manners, and not oonsolons of the reetraiota of good aodety. The fair young Methodist sat beside him at the table, and be noticed that abe wore a number of rings. Daring a pause In the meal the preacher took hold of the young lady’s hand, ahdr^iog it in the air, called Wealey's attention to the sparkling jewels. “Wbst do yon think of this, air," be raid, "for a Methodist’s bsnd^' The girl turned crimson. For Wes ley, with bis known and expreas^ aver- rion to finery, the question was a pecu liarly awkward one. But the aged evangelist showed a taot wbiob Chester field might have envied. He looked up with a quiet, benevolent smile, and simply said, “The hand is very beantiful." “ The blushing beaofy bad expected something far different from a reproof wrapp^ up with auoh felloi^ in a compliment She bad the good aanse to say nothing; but when a few bouts later abe again appeared in Weal^a preaenoe, the beautiful hand was strip ped of every ornament except those which nature had given.

One has an apple tree on the side of the fence, whose limbe overhang the fonoe on the aide -1 the other. Apples fall on either «sd‘ The question often asked is, do the apples tbat fall on one's land belong to one or the other, or to both! This subject baa been several timne disonased, ^tb some contradictory deeUioDa and judgments, but the rules are now pretty well estaolisbed. If the stem or trunk of the tree grows so olose to the line that parts of its aotnal body extend into eseh. neither owobr can out it down without the consent of the other, and tho fruit is to be equitably divided. If ^e stem of the tree stands wholly ‘ within the boundary line of ooe owner, ho owns the whole tree with its pro- dnela, although the roots and branches ttttond into the property ol the other, ^ere was an old rule of law that the latter might olaim from the yield of the tree as much as would be be an offset lor the nourishment it derived from hit, ^ate, but this it now obsolete. The law gives the land owner on whose soil the tree stands the right to out it down at hit pleasure, and to pluck all the fruit from It while it stands. In New York State the courts have deoided that treaspaos for assault would He by the owwof the tree, against the owner of the land over which its branohes ex- traded, if he prevented the owner of the tree, by personal violenoe, from reaeWng over and picking the fruit mwiog upon the branebae while stand- tog on the fenee dividing tbs lands. «e owner of the land over which the mnehee extend may lop the btuebes ol« to his line. He may dig down *nd cat the rooU square with his line if he so electa In plain terms, if no C rtiou cf the trunk is within hh line may refose all tiupass of the tree on Ala premises, either above ground or if fflTEs the tree UesMeitber to extend its roots nnd« MBSW or to hang its branohes over his pwmssa, be does not thereby gain anv He eannol pSkit!« nor totorfsre with the piling by the owner, m long m the w^^to the tree « « the feSJ wUeb divides the property. right to the fruit does net, bewevar, psrmit tbeothsroww to eomsapoo toTsoO OB tbs otbsr side of tbsltosto alhar ^ fruit, sad aU tbs frutt wfaishfrHs vuboBt vtolsnes to ths ground on tM ‘ ► wsprofsHy of Si^tj storm is tbat it makes no ‘fuss’’ sbrat it, but attends strictly to busineas, and aooompliihes more in a given time than would appear posable from any amount of observation. One feels a sense of dretrinesB, sod looking from the win dow sees tbat it is raining; tbs quietest rain in the world, the drops being very small and tolling with no appreciable weight. But step out into it and it is almost like stepping into the bay, the wetting ie so rapid and so thorough. It very rarely happena that any wind ao- eompaniea a rain-storm in this locality, and thunder and lightning are almost unknown. The average length of a rain-storm is about forty-eight hours, the wster coming down steadily and resolutely, while from the hillsides an unbroken sheet an inch or more to depth rushee rapidly to tho reservoirs below, nntil every stream becomes a river, every vslley a Iske. Sometimes it oonkinnes to rain—tbongh not in this unbroken way—for weeks. But this is a rare ease. As a rule, after abont two days and nights of solid deluge, it olears off, the farmers go to work, and the weather is too beautifni to be desoribed at all. Snob blue depths of sky, snoh aores of brilliant wild-flowers, and the woods ablsxa with color, all form a picture wbiob, if au artist should repre sent truthfully, would be at onoe pro nounced gaudy, nnnataral, and out of tote, liiia style of storm (with the intervening sunshine) sboui onoe a month for five or six months makes an average Oalifomia winter. Essay os Promptitude. John was noted for his promptitude, which wss the chief cause of his sueeees in life. When he was a small lal be was always prompt to take the beat seat in the room or the especial delicacy at the table; a few years Ister, it was remarked tbat whenever he broke a window in any part of the neighbor hood, he always sped rapidly home ward to obtain the money to pay for the damage done. To be sure be generally oootrived to gat away from the toene of tbe breakage before he could be idooti- fle^ and was never known to return with the mooev, probably through for- geHulneiia. But we digress. When he bad beoome a man, ho was prompt to fly mto a temper upon the least provo- ostion, and upon one oooaaion he OTomptly killed the man who offended him. and was praopUy banged to oon- SMuonoe. The man who is prompt is slweya bound to. oooupy a prominent imition, and that position may some- timea be the gallowa The girls of the Souny clime desoribe this world as one of ■•bustle, toil and out." We agree with them--tbe women hare all the bustle, aad the men oira have the toil sod oars. . _The Toledo (0.)’s*i says: OoL J. Dotm Alo»ndcr. e^tor Bsinaavills (fs.)
