ON THE INFLUENCE OF THE MOON,
Jlitnurhi of M: Picl-tring, pullitted orijfiiwlly
, in Ihe Mutuchuettt Agricultural Ilepoulory.
" Having; noticed the folly of regarding
the Moon in relation to the time of sow.
ing peas, I add, that the idea of its inllu
ence in any other operations in husbsinry,
ought to be alike discarded. It is a mis
chievous supposition kept alive by tradi
tion, and countenanced and supported by
the idle remark and representations; in
almanacks. The figure of a man mark
ed sv'nh the ign, andthv prognosticaions
of the weather, ought to be expunged ;
and every well disposed almanack-maker
would banish them if he knew the inju
ries thev occasion, by misleading the far
mer in any branch of rural economy. I
onre heard some farmers speaking of
spreading manure on grass land in the
spring-say very gravelyi (hat it should

inttead of unking into the ground, would

the contrary they mentioned one farmer
ho would not let uft hit norm ft nee when
the hornt of the moon fiointed down-vardn
for then the stones placed under the an
gles of the fence would kink, and the
lower rails touch the ground and rot.
And an industrious farmer in another state
told me that he had slaughtered a fine
heifer calf which he wished to have rais
ed, brcaute it wut drotird in the dark
the moon. If I hud not witnessed these
facts, I should have hardly thought it pos
sible that such ridiculous notions could
have been entertained by any persons w ho
claimed a share of common sense- Even
the changes of the weather, so generally
supposed to be influenced by the phases
of the moon, have ber u found by a long
course of observations, to happen at all
periods of the moon's appearance indis
criminately. This fact which your fa
ther mentioned to tt twenty years ago,
was this day repeated to me by the gen
tleman who had noted those observations.
Were it otherwise, he remarked, did

peculiar a idity upon this specie s of worm
This fact may bo ascertained by visiting
a nest of young robins in the vicinity of a
corn field, when it will be perceived that
they arc fed lavishly upon this kind of
worm. At other times, this bird feeds
upon diiTtrent species of worms and bugs,
which are found upon the surface of the
ground, which services arc of immense
value and benefit to the farmer, and ought
to recommend it to his peculiar care and
patronage. I5t:l its innormcc and utility
are inadequate to protect il from the wan
ton cruelty of boys and sportsmen- What
immense numbers of these our benefac
tors ate annually destroyed through mere
wantonness and cruelty, while we are
constantly hearing of the vavie-, cf
worms! and bugs in the vatious depart

fields have been laid waste the present
season by this larger species of worm,
which calamity might have been obviated
by having spared and fostered the robin
The utility, in, fact,, of this invaluable
bird, is so obvious, that even legislative
interference is imperiously demanded to
rescue it from the bloody fangs of the
fowler. Other states huve their protect
ing laws for the benefit of innocent and
useful t'rds, und why should we be (lis
lanced in the sacred cause of humanity ?

f biurra(hieat ilelrh of Jui pMne, late Cmprrrt
She was born at St. Pierre, Martin
ique, on the 24th of June, 17G8, or as
some say, two or three years after
wards, of wealthy parents, and was bap
tised under the name of Maria-Fran-
coise-Josephinc Tastherdela Pagcrie.
Whilst yet young, she had espoused
the Viscount Alexander Ikauhartiois
so well known since by his talents and
misfortunes. Endued with an ardent
imagination, and fond of pleasure, she
gave herself up to them with a vehe
mence that injured her reputation, and
marked her conduct as more than e
quivocal. The revolution commen
ced, but did not so much put an end
to these gallantries as it changed their
-bjects. Having escaped with diffi
culty from the reign of terror, during
wh'uh she had been detained in the
Magdclonnetts, she afterwards enter
ed into particular connexions with
llochc and ILrras, and strove all in
her powe to sustain the latter. She
in general, shewed much benevolence
and humanity. -When the contest of
the 13th of Vendcmaire had made
Honaparte conspicuous, and after he
had obtained the command of the ar
my in Italy, Josephine became his w ife,
and remained for the time at Pans.
In the following year, when Napo
leon was covered with laurels, she went
to join him at Milan, and almost al
ways accompanied him in subsequent
journeys. Crowned Lmprcss in 1 804,
she softened, as much as h)z could,
the asperity of character of her spouse,
obtained from hir.i msr.y acts cf clem
ency, saved the lives of a number of
persons, and from that period mani
fested virtues which were calculated
to obscure the remembrance of her
former errors. Bonaparte, thus far
triumphant, thought to put the seal to
his power and glory, by marrying, af
ter the campaign of 1GO0, an Austrian
Arch-Duchess. To do this, he repu
diated Josephine, who has been de
nominated his Star, and which, in ef-
events. Napoleon employed all the
address possible to sweeten this cup of
humiliation, and preserved to her the
title of empress dowager. Disgusted
with the grandeurs of life, which she
had purchased at the expense of her
tranquility and happiness, she retired,
after having taken seven! jouraies to
her country seat of Malmaisoir, still
maintaining some small interest over
the mind of the emperor,- This,
however, she exerted in vain, at the
moment of the campaign of Moscow,
to male hi ot sensible of the danger of
that enttrptize. Given up to the an
guish which followed, she saw crum
bling piece-meal, into nothing, that
phantom of glory and power whose
biiih she had witnessed, and remained
almost a'.cse 'm the midst f the ruins
of her family. The occupation nf H
capitol of Trance by the enemy, plun
ged her into profound sorrow, from
which, however, she found some sol
ace in the visits . h 'lt she received
from those kings and princes who knew
how to appreciate her merits.
It was at the end of a walk in h?v
trarden. at her beautiful country teat,"
in the springof 1814, with the Empe
ror Alexander, that she increased trie,
disorder, of which, a few davs after-
wards, she died. She was universally
regretted by the inhabitants, and all
those persons who from indigence or
misiortunes, nad become acquamiea
with her. -
Blackwood's Magazine has christened
the author of this series of popular works,
which succeed each other with the rapidi
ty of sk v rockets, as the " Great Unknown"
or as Virgil, perhaps, would have express
ed it, " Ingent cut lumen Qdemfitum." This
obscnriiy is likely to be short lived, how
ever; for, as in the play of Abclino, the
Great Bandit turns out to be the same with
the courteous Flodoardo, so the "Great
Unknown," even in this early part of the
drama is clearly identified with Sir Wal

A host of analogous passagesare brought
together in this work, which it is surprising
hoW they should occur to any one but the
author himself, in whose memory they
would naturally awaken each other. May
it not then prove that this anonymous work
is the work of Scott also, who, in esciping
one metamorphosis, immediately puts on
another. This csnnot be t for he is rep
resented as a modest, unpretending nan;
and, perhaps, he was never so unfortunate
ly seduced from the artless simplicity of
genius, as when he broke out into raptures
at Prince Lsterhazy's coat of stars at the.
coronation, while a native Indiatrof our
woods surveyed the whole of the pageant
with the most unaffected philosophy, and
without the slightest emotion of wonder.
Taking it for granted that Sir Walter
Scott is the author of the Novels, the
writer of the Letters proceeds to discuss
his motives for concealment. This is a
question cf more difficult solution than
the preceding, and he leaves it where ho
