The Area of North Garoliaa.
Some who have h id occasion to examine at
tentively the statistics of the Eitihlh Census,
have doubtless been more or less m>np!used at
the deficiency of .5.704 square miles, which ap
pears in the report of the area of North Carolina,
as compared with the report of the same as given
ill the Seventh Census. The total area of the
State, nccording to the Census of 1850, and also
according to other official reports of prerious
date, was 50,704 square miles; bat, according
to the Census of 18(jO. the area of fiur Common
wealth was reckoned at only 45.000 square miles.
Uncertain as to which of these two governmental
reports was correct, and, at the same time, fail-
*g to perceivc any good reason why North Caro
lina should not be credited with all the territory
that really belongs to her, I wrote for informa
tion to the Hon. Secretary of the Interior, whose
reply, in connection with the joint reply of the
Commissioner of (he General Land Office, settles
the matter definitely, and leaves us. as citizens of
the Old North State, in quiet and undisputed
possession of our very ample domain of 50.704
square niiles. The 'corrertion of this error re
stores North Carolina to tlie position of prece
dence which, in extent of territory, she formerly
enjoyed, respectively, over the five large States
of New York, Pennsylvania, TenncBsee, Missis
sippi and I.onisiana.

A HulMiid Retttms alter 86 Tetn Unnee
Thursday morniDg the subjects of this skctch
passed through this city on their way from Put
nam county, Indiana, to their houie in Lincoln
couuty, Kentucky, and flruni a gentleman who
talked with them we have ob%MMed the follow
ing roumntic story:
In 1842 John Elliot left hia home nnd his
wife, who had borne him eleven children, in
Putnam county, this State, suddenly and in pas
sion at some slight misanders^ding that had
ocTOrred between them. He gave his family no
intimation of his departure previous to leaving,
and they never heai^ of him again nntil after
t he lapse jrf twentjr-six yeart.
The elfcWieired hin* hnsband w»a dead, ««4
after two years waiting she gave him up as l(«t
to her forever, and murried a respectable citizen
of the country, named Ballou, and has resided
happily enough with him, near Cloverdale. ever
sinco, until last week. It was then that the
first tidings of her supposed deceased husband
were received by her.
It was iu this wise that these tidin«is reached
her. A letter came to her through the hand of
a person who was a stranger. This letter sot
forth that if she would visit a little town several
miles distant from Cloverdale she would meet an
old and verj- dear friend, and urged her uot to
omit making the visit at a certain time. The
letter impressed her strangely, and she concluded
to visit the town named, at the designated time,
and did so.
Whiit was hy surprise on entering th^ house
where the meeting was apiMiotcd, to meet her
first husband. Twenty-six years had pass.d,
and time had left its impress upon the man, yet
she recognized him at once, and threw herselt
into his arms; for notwithstanding she is now
sixty-eight years of age the sight of her first
choice warmed the loving pulses of her heart,
and broke open (ho fountain of her affections
that had be.;n so long sealed up. She threw her
arms about his neck, kissed his wrinkled cheek,
and wept like a girl the te.irs of joy.
The hn.sbaiid’s heart was also melted into tcn-
dernefis. and lie embn cod bis aged but long-
deserted wife, with all the fervor of a young and
ardent lover The past was talked over, the
sudden disappearance, the long ab.sence, and con*
tinued silence of the husband explained, and
then and there it was agreed that they would
8i>end the remnant of their lives together.
The woman returned to her home in Clovcr-
dale. She explained to her second husband all
that happeucd, and told him that she felt it her
duty to go with the first husband from whom she
had so long been sepirated. The second hus
band, Ballou, was loth to consent, but the wo
man was unchange.ible in her determination, and
he was compelled to acquiesce. Their wo.ldiy
cfiet-ta were divided, and on .Monday last the'dd
lady left Cioverdaie to rej oin her hu»>bmil i;i the
little village where the meeting took place, and
Thursday they passed through the city on their
way to Kentucky.
When the husband left home he wandered off
to Kentucky, whqre .remained until the (’ali-
fornia gold discoveries created such an c.xeite-
ment in 1841). He was seized with the gold
fever, and left for the rich places on the Pacific
coast There he worked and saved his earnings
nntil he accumulated some forty thousand dollar?.
With this he returned to Kentucky, purchased
and sticked a farm in Lincoln coutity. aud has
been living upon it ever since 18.59. Having
accumulated considerable wealth, he is now pre-
ptin «l to comfortably care for her whom he so
cruelly deserted twenty-six years ago. and to give
•a good start in the world” to the children she

‘‘Cow.ardj co.ward.I” Jiaid James liawsou to
Edward 'Wilkius. as he pointed his finger at him.
Edward's face turued very red, and thou the
tears started to his eyes as he said : “JaiLCs Ijaw-
soij, dou't call mo a coward,”
“Why don’t you fight Johu Taylor then, when
he dares you ? I .would uot be dared by any
•lie is afraid,” said Ciiarles Jones, as Jie put
his finger in his eye, and pretended to cry.
‘*l am not afraid,” aaid E^ard ; and he looked
uliiioKl ivQiid.y-to gi^’c up. fur John Taylor came
iorward and said, “Coiue Pl>. then, and.fihow that
you are uot afraid.”
A geatleniau pissing by, said, ‘ Why do you
not fight the b(iy ? Tell uie the rea.«»»)ii. '
The boys all stiwid still while Edward sjid, “1
will uot do a wicked thing, sir, if they do call
me a coward.”
• That's right, my nuLle boy,” said the gentle
man. ‘-If you fight with that boy you will really
disgrace yourself, and will show that you arc
iiK/ic afraid of the lau;.:!i and ridicule of yoiir
friends thau of breaking the cumuiaudments ol
your Maker.
It is more honorable to bear an iusult with
meekness than to fight about it.
Bcustsand brutes which have no reas!>n.know
of no other way to avenge themselves ; though
it be hard to be called a coward, and to submit
to the indignity aud insult, yet remember the
words of the wise man—• lie th it ruleth his
spirit is greater thau he th:a taketh a city.”
Many a p^Mir. deluded man has been drawn in
to accept a challenge and fight a duel to exhibit
his bravery, aud thus di«^lay to all that he waa
a miseruble coward, who was afrnid of the sneer
:ind laugh of his comp:inions. Mather follow the
cxauiple of that brave soldier, who, when he waa
challenged to fight, said, ‘*1 do not fear the eai|-
non's mouth, but 1 lisar God.”—Jncenile Rc-

Auimal Maourea arc the uiain-»tay offfQgiti*
live Agriculture: By far too little attcatioa ia
paid to their jtroductiuu and use. Although th«
term aninvU wtiHMix, strivtly speaking, it OoIt
such as is formed by the cxcreueBta of
and the decoinpoiitiun of their bodica by dilerenl
uictbods, it is generally applied to laauurea pit^
duced by the escrcments ^ auiuiala, and th« ad«
mixture uf atraw, leaves or any other vegataU*
matter, used as litter, aud it haa recaived th*
uaaua ^ stable or jprd manure. The q«alitj
depends jMUch upo».|he food nven to th« catttlt
and upon the Titter tiaed. Tk«
richer the food, the "richer will be the awBura
produced. The great fault with niQe4entha of
the farmers, ia to under-value stable manure, aod
to waste it by allowing it to remain exposed, ia
small dispersed quantities, to the action of the
suu aud rain, thereby allowing hs fertilizing
properties to evaporate. Cattle should be stabled
or peuued iu smaller places than is generaUj
dune. Wheat aud oat straw, oak leaves, har,
grass or other vegetable matter, should be free^
used for litter. Avoid pine straw or pine saw*
dust or pme shavings, alt being injurious to aoj
laud, by the resinous principles they contain.
Better burn them aud apply their ashes
upon the land. Corn, instead of being harves*
ted in the mauuer generally practiced by pulUsK
of the leaves should be cut olf near the gronnd,
aud the stalks used iu uiakiug manure, ^peat*
ed experiments have shown conclusively that
there is less loss by shrinkage in the grain, by
being harvested in the latter mode thau by pull*
ing the fodder. W e have in the comstalks one
of the best and most abundant of raw materiah
to operate with. Manure should be collected
every day or two in as large heaps as possible—
the surface made smtjoth, so as to give as little
chance lor evaporation as posisible—the ootaide
covered with earth, or put uuder cover. The
best method is, to have large quantities of muck
or loaf mould, or good rich earth brought in the
yard, aud the manure daily mixed with a portion
of it. Every load of fresh manure, mix^ with
three or four loads uf muck under cover, will
cause each load of (he mass to become equal to
its bulk of clear manure, for purposes of t'crtili*
zation. 'Ihis arises from the escaping gaaes
given off from tiic manure during fermentation,
being absorbed by the divisor. Abeing
produced from the richest food, contains the lar*
ge.«t quantity of fertilizing priuciples. It can
be used with the best results upon all crops.
Those with delicate nerves can use it under tbe
name\t\'pomhcttc, but this article is easily pro
duced by Using liberal quantities of charcoal auat
aud {jypsum—causing! it to lose all obnoxious
smell by fixing the aniinouia.

SiG.MFiCANT.—One moraiug last week a
German paper in New York cuutainod »u adver-
j tisemeut that fifty men were wanted at 198
I Broadway, at the rateuf 89 per week. At 8
i o'elock. when the store was opened, there were
not leskthan 5U0 meu gathered about the door,
and six policemen, club in hand, were wholly
unequal to tbe task of keeping back the crowd,
which increased every moment until 9 o’cl>M:k,
when the advertiser announced that the qu>jta
was mied.
A traveling litii; insurance agent applied to a
Texan to -‘take out a policy,” but tbe 'ivxan re-
jilied: “A i'cliow'a litie is so confourtded uncer
tain in this CDDimoiiitT it ain't worth imraring *'
—that iVoni pigeons being the strougcst. It is
equal to hall its quantity of guano, if kept under
ciiver. 'Ihe latter being an animal nature, and
when pure, of a highly concentrated nature may
be Used to advantage ou any land; but if im*
jiroperly ajiplied, it either destroys the crop or
loses its fertilizing prop,^rties.
*U'hc purely vegetable manures consist of vege*
tables ploughed under, iu a green stato. Cow*
jicas arc one of the best plants at our command.
Cabbages sown very thickly comes next, but
t;loveror Luccrn are superior to either. If
Limeis ctiuveuient, it is advisable t« spread from
thirty to jfifty bushels of slaked compust lime to
the acrc, beiore ploughing the crop ia. This
method, where other manur«'s arc not obtainable,
will be found an easy and certain one to ame*
liorate our lauds, cspcciully such soils as aro do-
Hcient iu vegwtablo iibrc.
One maxim should govern the progress of the, and that ie, that in order to keep
his laud in a constant state of fertility, he most
re place in feitilizing parts every year aa much
as he rcmove.s from it in the form of produce;
but ail iucrease of fertility eau only bo gsined
when more is added than is taken away. The
great fault with our plautcrs, is to use manure,
when used, upon land not prepared in a form to
receive i^ i>ecp ploughing is essential. In
general, all ntauures contaiuing ammonia should
be plouglied ip—\he others, containing salts,
should be used as .a top-dressing. Tlie former
escapes—tte latter penetrates.
Small farm
Ever}thing connected with the prosperity of
the South Sc»;niB U) indjcate the nccetsilj of
changing very materially the system of agricul
ture. Some of our plaulcjs, who aro favorably
oituated, tind it to their advapU^e to keep up
their large plantations aud to .eiujdoy a large
force. Every man mijhf^ of mur*4,-, his own
judge in this matter. liut, a:i a general rule,
the want of cheap lab->r l4) k'fp the drains and
ditche.s ojieii. to keep the fences upandagent^l
system of intprovement ou the farms, jilainly in
dicates the uici>sity of reducing the size of our
t‘arlu^ and leasing thoin to g>ud tenants, at rea
sonable prices, in order to the improvcmaut of
the lauds.
Skilled Libor aud ordinary industry and for»>
cast will siK>n couvince every one, that th« sys
tem of .;mallfarms oflers the highest indttocmcots
to the future well being of the eommuuity, W#
must try the adxption of the shift system or
change of crops, Iea\ ing lauds uncultivat^ with
a coat of cl»ver or under fence to prevent grazing,
the cultivation of the cereals aud the grasses, as
i well as e>‘*.ry other article needed either lor home
coiiSuuiptiiMi or market ppxluco. Let every
pers«ju pbnt au orchard of choice fruita. There
is scarcely anything more profitable, and certain
ly nothing wore attractive to make hoflw plflM-
ant to a family.
