Valuable Lumber.
In a speech at Raleigh fair last week
Col. Wm. Green, in speaking of the value
of North Carolina timber, said that in
Watauga county a walnut iree, some four
leet in diameter, w as sold u it stood for
150. Sawed up into veneering it was
sold lor 1,400.
We have given some articles recently
shotving the great profit that would be
made in the course of a materially long
term ol years from land plmited in Wal
nut trees. We have no idea that many
trees could be grown to sell as high as
this, but they are always in idledemannd at
and there are large tracks 01 good
Isuda in this State which could probably
be put to no better Use than to plant ibem
in walDUt trees Ic the course of a lew
yeais several well tim'ereil acres would be
worth a small iortune.

O LET NOT THE PEACE OF THAT
VALLEY BE BROKEN.'
O let not the peace of the valley be bro
ken: Tlie vale so delightfully tranquil and
sweet
O "et not the sound of the harsh pislon
stroke in
The dells of that w ild w ood its echoes
repeat.
1'he'B the nested bird peeps from the leafy
limb swaying
Above the hushed waves that so dreat 1
ily run.
And low bleating sheep and white OX'11
staying
Across the lair hill-slopes asleep in the
sun.
Where the stream is most placid the wil
lows' green tresses
Touch others that hang Irom the dc. p
under skies,
And the rosy-lipped maidens at morn
gather cresses
That grow among blossom as brig.it
as blue eyes.
Dark moss tinted boats in the shade of
thick vines lie
Where float tallen petals of many bright
hues.
And by the green shore w here the silver
shines lie.
The indolent fisherman's
canoes.

My life faoni the lives Hint are stiungcrs
