WORlf FOR THE MONTH.
PloHgJiinfVho utility of Fall and
Winter ploughing for the Spring crop?, is
generally adruiited by most good fanners,
whn the lad is pt a tcnancinus texture.
It is perhaps Letter for r nch, than upon
lighter soils but ;care niut be taken that
clayey! soils jshall not be ploughed when
wet. During January and February, it
frequently happens that the weather will I
permit; this Work to be done, and for se
veral reason!) it M important that the cul
tiyatorf shou d avail himself of any such
opporlunitief that may effer.lst. It
renders sue soils more pliable by the
meliorating influence of thefiost ; 2d. It
destroys the "grub; worm which would oth
erwise be dominant until the spring, when
a resuscitation to active life renders it

practical an(l intelligent Maryland fanner
we extract he following concerning fen
ces : For seral years we have been re
pairing thejpld worm fences' with G bar
post and rail fencp, taking the old rails
for the new I fence; and we have saved
enough to Jceppjhe old ne in repair,

never boring them, as those chopped out
are decided !r better. You can graduate
the holes ; t ie rails do not need half the

posts will five years longer than the

PIIOSPHATJtS AND ASHES.
Tlie giatvalueof the furtiliz rs to the

WAR WITH SPAIN IMMINENT
THE TRIBUNE FULLY COM

We have already iutimated that a war
with Spain might renew the fast relaxing

uomiiialiou and re-electiou.
In striking confirmation of our position.
we observe that the JV. Y Tribunc-vnvK
10 spicuous among the Republican jour
nils ot the country hitherto for its oppo
sition to Geu Grant in commenting up
on our ariicle. takes the er&und and we
quote its own words that
"The wrongs against American citizens in
Cuba, which remain unredressed by the au
thor.' ies of Havana aud the Cabinet of
Madrid are gross and intolerable.'
Intolerable means "no to be borne."
The' wrongs, therefore, which citizens
of the Slates nave suffered at the bands
of Spain are noi, to be born or endured
Wiiat is not bo borne, it follows, is in

then, are to be redressed.
The Tribune goes on to say that these
ougs aie virtually admitted to b gross

and luioK-rauiu fty the Ueuartaieul ot

isfactorily established these two points,
namely, ibai, llieee wrongs are "gross aud
intolerable" aud not to be endured, aud that
'ilu-y have been virtually admitted to be
do by the L)'pai tiuent ot Foreign Affairs
iu Madrid, liie J ribune eaye :
"A joint commission for the consideration and
Rett lenient of claims arisinr under these out-
rigCR has been negotiated by Gen. Sickle?, at
Madrid."
But it add? :
"The fatal point at which all diplomacj
breaks down is that Si.ain h ceared to exercise
hiiv authority in Cuba. It fe at wcUm to viakt

with Oiucn icTontAa6ou JlassachuMtts, because
her a aerators once reigtied over that territory.
When all diplomacy breaks down, and
all treaties are useless it is clearly time
that something else should be done.
What shall it be ? The Tribune answers
with sufficient distinctness iu the follow
ing language :
are calamities a bad as war and the worn of
them all is for a nation to forjret no far its evi-
dent interests And its wlf-rtpett a to submit

words are :
"The guestion for our Government to decide
is, at what paint Iiall conclude that Spain has j

The 'Tribune shows plainly the occa
sion the necessity of a war with Spain.
How easy it will be to progress from this
oue step further, to the conclusion '.hat
Gen. Grant is the best, man to conduct
this war! See how suddenly this war

While the 'Iribune confirms thus strong

A TEURIBLE EPISODE.
Fearful Struggle urith a Maniac in the
Burning Woods.
One of the survivors and victims of the
late fire in Wisconsin relates some thrill
ing incidents of these disasters. Sub
joined is the experience of a lady :
Night was coming on, and 'since noon
we had nothing to eat. 1 did not feel
hungry, but was tormented with though s
of what m?$ht happen if we shouldt
reath a place of safety, for I feared that
Louis would give out, and that was one
reason that made me carry him. My
arms ached, and my limbs were scratched
bruised and blee.Hug. u I mide good

sat down to rest.
By this time night had cmc on, and
what a night 1 No moon, no ars, but
the clouuy heavens lighted uo afar with
the horrible fiies of the burning woods
The clearing ni which we sat waa th
dried up bed of a stream, which for some
unaccountable reaaou had thickly wooded
shores, and we were at least 200 leet from
the edge of the forest in flames. All this
time Louis, manly little fellow that he was,
had not even aeked for food, nor had he
cried since I myself foolishly frightened
him.
I had heard my husband speak of a
stream which had ion dry, but that was
in a north-easterly direction from our
house, and notwithstanding the tact tlmt
I was lost, yet I had a general notion that
I was approaching Wolf river. 'I he stars
could ive me no information, for I could
not see them. What to do I scarcely
knew ; and when the heat of the fire be
came such that I could not doubt that it
as near I determined to press on away
from it, and taking Louis's baud I set ou .
Hardly had I risen from the ground
when iti the direction of the woods on the
other side of the clearing, I heard a crash
ing noise, a mingled gnashing and hoarse
barking, which 1 instantly recognised as
that ofwolvts. I scarcely had tine to
snatch up Louis, and run behind a pine
tree, whose trunk was at least six feet in
diameter, before I heard them scrambling
up the side of the hill, aud felt them rush
by me.
I looked out and could see their eyes
commg toward me like the wind. They
did not stop for an instant, and when they
passed, there came in their track a herd
of deer uttering cries that seemed almost
human in their intense agony. They ran
blindly, for something more terrible than
wolves were behind them ; they struck
the tree and were hurled back by the
shock, some of them falling back upon
those behind.
The stampede seemed to last ten min
utes, and when it was over, and I, trem
bling with fear, dared once more to emerge
from the refuge and look across the clear
ing, I saw the woods at its edge already
burning saw it lurid through the smoke,
and felt its terrible heat upon my (ace. 1

My shoes were stripped from my feet, and ; ays, emphatically, that " curses are like
my ankles were torn and bloody. Fallen processions, they i'retorn to where thev
tree lay in my way, but I clambered rl out." Other things, beside mahdic
over and crawled under them in my des- 1 tions, take the same course, and we have
perate flight. 1 was agonized with terror

indiscriminately applied to all to-days
that have fulfilled the mission upon which
they were sent. ITo day is the time in
which we really Jive, for now events .rr
actually transpiripg; the. past is gone,
and faithfulness of memory is all upon
which we can rely, while the future is
daikand uncertain. Enjoy the present
and turn it to the Wst advantngj; never
let chances of happiness slip away nrtim
proved, for they are as golden rtrandt
woven in a web f ol lif.-, which diffuse
light and be.u y through the whole fabric,

TOTtEVER.
There is con:airjed in this word some
thing which inspires us with profound
awe something solemn, grand, incon
ceivablel How can we imagine a serien
of years merging )n to eternity aud necer
ending ? It is impossible. An impene
trable nientaf darkness which envelopes
the futureyears of patient toil has failed
to dispel. (
Great minds haVe sounded the depths
which at one timej were deemed unfath
omable. Reason and reflection have traced
and brought to light many hiden laws of
nature, but brforej this subject the mon
profound minds are powerless all is
darkness and uncertainty but Hope
persistently points; through the gloom to
a point iu the distance which seems
brighter than tbejeet, but which we arc
unable to see through any other than the
eye of Faith. A.t first we see it but
dimly, but, afrer gazing a while, it takes
upon itself a mora definite form. It is a
gAK a golden gate which opens at
times to receive poor wayworn pilgiims,
emitting a gloriously bright light, while
the sound of lrravenlr mnsie comes
1 floating down the highway of l.fe. cheer
ing tlie travellers: thereon. As the eye
of Faith grow stronger, we perceive an
inscription, wrought in golden characters,
which is "Heaven ;" let this be our
beacon and our watchword.

in il a course of reasoning which bas a

things, that a easj might arise when a
public officer "might grasp at power fcrf

of his connexions and relatives to office,"
and, hence, h.uld be removed He went
on to say that if tlie power of remotal

would be if their oaeut were needed,
" such a body is more likely to misuse it
