to have been one of the first to call the attention

(erinaiia of I'enn) Ivanu, had by experience dis

and were tbua ouabled to keep up the fertility ol

while the Dutch and Kni'lish farmers in the once

Muliiivvk and Scoliarie, found their farms growing
worthies for wheat, and have long been com

catch you inside ruy door again ; miod what 1 tell

himself considerable scarce arter that, bo never
set foot inside the door agin, and I thought he had
giv'n up all hopea of ball, and she of bun ; when
one night, a most particular uncommon dark night,
aa I waa a comin home from neighbor Dttarborue'a
I heard some one a talkin under Sail's window.
Well, I stops and listens, and -who should be near

Salt to runoff with bim to Rhode Island lo bo nmr-
rwd. It waa alt settled, tie should come wrth a
borae and shay to lho gate, and then help her out
of the Window, jit al nine o'clock, uboul Ihe time
she commonly went to bed. Then he axes her to
reach down her hand for him to kiss, (for ho was
proper clever at nod aawtler) and she stretches ii
down and he kisses it ; and he says, I bcleive I
must have the whole ol you out arter all, and gives
ler a jirk that kinder startled her ; it camo mo sud
den like it made her scream, so off he sot hot foot,
and over the gate in no lime.
Well, 1 cyphered over this all night a calculatin
how J coukl icciprocuie tbo tn. k with him, and at
ast I bit on n scfienw. I recollected father s worus
al partin, "wiimi what I tell you, yon' twingfop

Hophecy come true, yet, I guess. So the iicxt
night, jist at dark, I gives January Snow, the old
nigger, a nidge with my elbow, aud as soon as be
ooks up, I winks and walks out and be nrter me

A-JSNA KtMSTORY; ;
A curious fact iu Natural History was related
some time smice by Dr. Anseiui, professor of Na
rural History at Turin. A Miake called io Italy,
Serpe Nerva, lho Coluber Natnv of Linnaeus, is
w el i'kuow ii to bo ox 1 rciricty foiid of mnk and the
Italian peasantry pret, nd that it makes its way in-j
lo dunes to grainy its inclination, lhey even as
sett 4hat it is-owitHiies entwined -round trie tegs
of cows, drawing milk from their teats. Of
ibis fact Dr. Aiisemi himself had an opportunity
once of being an eye witness. He says ;
"Walking, as usual, one morning, on the road
called the I'ark, bordered by pastures containing a
great number of sheep and horned cattle. .. I obser
ved an old but vigorous cow, operate from the
others, aud looking, with her head raised in the
air, her ears erect, and shaking her tail." Sur
prised at the noise she made, I seated myself on
the bank of a stream, and followed ber with, my
eyes, wherever alio went. After running foraome
minutes, she suddenly Stopped in a sequested spot,
and began to ruminate. Inquisitive to discover
the cause, I went to the plaice. After going into
a pond to brink, alio came out, and waited on the
hunk for a black enako which crept from among
the bushes and approaching ber, entwined lumseli
round her lei, and began to suck her milk. , 1 1
dbstived this phenomenon two successive days,
withowt informing the herdsman. Tbo third day j
I informed him ojf it ' jtnd be told me tiwt fir sohiej

Early in the Fall of '33, two boys by the namo
of Johnson, the one twelve and the other nine years
of age,, were playing on the banks of Shori re.ekT
near the mouth of the Muskingum, and occasional,
