The true and only remedy for this, is,
to ascertain by analysis, either of your

materials, sucji as are inherent in the soil,
and not foundto any appreciable extent in
the atmosphere, are taken from the land
by cropping Or feeding, and not return

kind, and return those materials to the
land in such available shape as will ena

all they require. This is indispensable to

Mr. Ebenezer Doolittle was the bomi
nablest mati jafter rich galls that ever was.
He hadn't been keepin school in Pineville
more'n six rrionths, before he had found
out every gfijl in the settlement wbose fa
ther had twenty niggers, and had courted
all of 'em within a day's ride. He was
rather old t0 be poplar with the galls, and
somehow tljey did'nt like his ways, and
the way they did blufT him off was enough
to discourage anybody but a Yankee
schoolmaster! what wanted to git married,
and hadn't many years of grace left. But
it didn't seetn to" make no sort of differ
ence to hirri.j He undertook 'em by the
job. He was bound to have a rich wife

one case, it! only made him more perse-

Betty Darl ng, as they used to call her
old Mr. Darling's daughter, what used
to live out oni the Runs was about the
torn downestj mischief of a gall in all
Georgia. Betty was rich and handsome
and smart, and had more admirers than
she could sjiake a stick at, but she was
sich a tormtntin little coquet that the boys
was all afraid to court her in down right I
stood on, while the sunshine of his heart
beamed from his taller colored fabe in a
way to let every body know something
extraordinary was gwyne to happen.
Jest after dark he mought been seen
drivin out by himself in a barouche to
wards old Mr. Darling's. Everybody
'spected something, and all handsiKvas on
the look out. It was plain to see; Squire
Rogers' importance was swelled up con
siderable with something, but j j nobody
couldn't git a word out pf him. jj
Mr. Doolittle didn't spare the lash after
he got out of sight of town, and with
strainin eyes and palpitatin hart,; he soon
reached the place appinted to meet the
object of his consumin affections.!
Was she thar ? No I Yes 1 lis it ?
Yes, thar she is !--the dear creator. The
skirt of her nankeen ridin drfess, What sets
close to her angelic form, flutterjri in the
breeze. She stands timidly crouchin in
the corner of the fence holdin f her vale
close over the lovely face, tremblin in ev
ery jint for fear she mought be discovered
and tore away from the arms of her de

Dearest angel P ses he, in a low voice.
Oh, Ebenezer P and she kind o' fell in
' Compose yourself, my love.'
Oh, if father should '
' Don't fear, dearest creature, j My arm

And then he was jest gwine to pull
away her vale to kiss her.
Oh !' ses she, 'didn't I he,ar somebody
4 Eh V ses he, lookin round. Let's git
in, my dear."
And with that he helped her into the
barouche, and contented himself with lm
printin a burnin kiss that almost singed
the kid glove on her dear little hand, as he
closed the door. Thejn jumpin on the Iron
seat, he drove as faslt as he could to town
encouragin her all t)ie way, and Iswarin
tq her how he would love her and make
her happy, and telliri her how her father
and mother would forgive her and think
jest as much of her as ever.

MRS. JOHN QUINCY ADAMS.
Mrs. Adams was born in England on
the 11th of February, 1775. She was the
daughter of Joshua Johnson, a Maryland
gentleman, who went from America to
London, where he became eminent as a
merchant. During the war he left Eng
land for France, where he acted as the
commercial agent of this country, and re
turned upon the ratification of the treaty
of peace. Mr. Adams found his future
wife in London, when acting under . a
commission conferred upon him by Gener
al Washington in 1794, for exchanging
the ratifications made under the treaty of
November of that year. Mrs, A. was mar
ried at All Hollows Church, London, on
the 26th June, and followed her husband
to) Prussia, where Mr. A. was presented
as the first American Minister from the
United States. Mrs. Adams conferred
honor upon the country at a time when
the United States was just recognised as
ah equal among the nations of the earth.
Her next theatre of service was in Wash
ington, and after this again the Court of
St. Petersburg, and this from 1809 to 1814,
the most exciting, and perhaps the most
revolutionary period in the history of Eu
rope, and embracing a part of that inter
esting period of our own history when the
country was at war with England. Mr.
Adams resided longer at St. Petersburg
than any of. our American Ministers, ex
cepting MrTMiddleton, and his lady was
left there for a brief period, while her hus
band was called to another field of ser
vice. Mrs. A. came alone from St. Pe-

Darling ? His daughter was hed and hart
in love with; him too, if she was opposed
by her parental And as for the property,
he was certain to git that when once he
married the gall.
On Saturday when ther was no school,
Mr. Doolittle went to old Squire Rogers,
and told him he must be reddy to marry a
couple that night, at exactly ten o'clock.
' Mum ses he, ' you musn't say a word

as white as a sheet.
'Open the door, Rogers,' ses a hoarse
voice outside. j
But the Squire didp't hear nothiti til he
pronounced the last words of the ceremo

Jest then the door opened. In rushed
