deeper, and this crop is consequently but
little benefited by top-dressings when of
much sircv except so far as they operate
tn keeping the surface moist; The roots
of fruit trees are still dccer, and they
derive but little advantage, except from
manures well spaded or worked in. They
however posses an important advantage

by continuing in growth for successije

is needed than ordinary pluwing affords,
the coat of harrowed manure may be
thrown under ten or twelve inches by
f means of a dooble -moiilboard or Michi

nure spread, harrowed and plowed under
by a light or gang plow. Ihe young

THE OSAGE OILVStiE II EDGES.'
The osage orange is highly estimated
; for making hedge fences. Tl.
gardens ot Nicholas lngwortli, in tlie
suburb of Cincinnati are-fi-need with,
this plant. It has proved to be an effec
tual barrier to intruders, w ho have en
deavored to plunder his choice fruits
grae, peaches, &c, owing to its armor
of large pointed thorns. The seeds are
sown in May, in beds like those of beets,
and are set out next spring in hedge rows,
six inches apart, and the tops cut off to
the ground. It is a native of Texas and
Arkansas, and will grfw-wineuriiw
ern climate, except on very wet and cold
soils. Large quantities of the seed have
leen planted during tlie past two years
in Ohio and othtfr western States, and im-
ense tracks of land in tlioiw States will
soon tic protected and adorned with this
valuableplant.- J. W. Thorhiirn it Co.,

about Now York City, Long Island, ftud

fifty miles north of Chicago ; this will re

ground along the line is to be cleared, lev

out next spring. As an evidence of the
extreme hardiness of this plant, we would

foot of ground to their special cultivation.
Our plan has been simply this. As soon
as our garden has been plowed and spa
ded, We have sown over it a small quan
tity of radixh seed, broadcast. The sub
seijnent working and planting of the soil
buries these seeds, and as they come up,
we destroy them as we would weeds where
there is not room for them to grow. Lut.

SAWING, AND SAW MILLS,
Having been a lumberman for many
years part, both here and at the north,
and desiring to put into onr tuilH here,
the best machinery in use I took a tour
to the State of Maine, thence lo Canidn,
and Northern New York, and patiently
examined all the best mills in these re
gions. Being a millwright by trade, I
found nothing to compare with what is
termed " the line-log gang," as itsed in
Maine and manufactured by Messrs.
Hinkley &Egey, of Bangor. Tliese mills,
for strength and ntility m every way ex.
eel any mill in the country. They are a
roller gang, consequently there is no time
lost in gigging hack, nor in putting on
the logs, ii.r yetlin taking off the kmUer
when sawed ; one log follows through af
ter another, the same as the plank in a
Woodworth ulaninar niaclnne, anU with
tsomethiilg like the same speed. The' log
pass through the whole without any re
gard to length. The lumber is then edg
ed up by a circular saw, consequently the
logs yield a much larger amount of lum
ber, than when sawed in the common
way. Gunir saws are also very thin and
cut away very little stuff. These mills

TALE OF A P1X.
In an early month of the year 1778,
with a tolerable ed scat ion, ana with ma
ny natural qualifications for a financial
life, Jacques Lafitte was seeking for a sit- -nation
as clerk. He had high hopes and
a light heart, for he brought with him a
letter-wf introd iiction to Mr- Perregaex.
the Swiss banker. . But with all his san
guine anticipations and golden day dreams
lie was bashful and retiring. It was with
a trembling heart that the young provin
cial appeared before the Parisian man of
bonds and gold. He managed to explain
the purpose of his visit, and presented
hi tetter of reeoiniuendution. Tlie bro
ker quietly read the note. "It ia impos
sible," said he, as he laid it aside, "that
I can find room .for you at present ; all my
offices are full. Should there be a vacan
cy at a future time, I will see what can
be done. In the meantime 1 advise you.
to apply elsewhere, as it maybe a consid- '
erable period before I shall beble to ad
mit foil." . Awav went lunxhinp and nrna-
""tperons visions! Disappointed and gloomy,"
Jacques (eft tho presence of the polite
banker. As he crossed with downcast
eyes tlie court-yard of tlie noble mansion,
lie observed a pin lying ca tle ground.
His habitual bUits of frugality, amidst
his disappiutinMit, were still upon tho
watch, lie picked up the pin and caro
fully stuck it in the lappcl of his coat r
From that trivial action sprung his fu

led the way to a stupendous fortune. Fro
the window of his.,caUinet, Mr, Peprtgem
had observed the action of bis rejected
clerk, and he wisely .thought that the man
who would stoop to pick up a pin, under
such circarnstaiiceB, wa?' endowed with"
necessary qlnalities lor a good economist ;
he read i i that single act of parsimony
an indication of a great financial mind,
and he deemed the acquisition of snch ,.
one as wealth itself. Before the day had
closed, Lafitte received a noteiromJthe
