TTInIE FAMILY GaRGLE.
“ Within thy realm no discord’s jarring sound
la heard, nor Cain and Abel there are found !”
THE ANGEL’S BIDDING.
Brother, come up ! oh leave the earth
And all its sordid cares awhile,
And reassert thy heavenly birth,
Where all creation’s glories smile—
O, hither come!
Brother, come up! our skies are fair.
No clouds come o’er the face of day;
No storms deform the balmy air
That loves around our hills to play—
O, hither come 1
Brother, come up ! the flowers that bloom
. In earth’s fair garden, fade and die,
But here they waft their soft perfume
Thro’ heaven's sweet vales eternally:
O, hither ccrae!
Brother, come up! let earth still lure
The heart that loves a changing scene ;
Be thine the realms that still endure,
In beauty perfect and serene : *
O, hither come!
Family Circle. —The constitution of the
family circle affords most conclusive evi
dence of the goodness of our Maker. If all
the other arguments, that sustain this con
soling doctrine, could be overthrown—if the
variegated earth and the changing heavens
were suddenly to lose the benevolent pro
visions, with which they are crowded—if the
eyes were no longer to view beautiful
scenery, and the ear no more listen to the
rapturous sound, there would still remain
sufficient proof of this fact. Could we but
witness the cordial feelings that circulate
through the family throng—the careful
avoidance of every thing that would create
the slightest rupture —the suppression of
the selfish emotions and the mutual regards
that daily prevail, we should have no diffi
culty in believing that “God is love.”
As in the natural world, we have reme
dies for our physical frames, so, in the moral
world, we have antidotes for the removal of
the pains, that agonize the bosom. Forced
to mingle in the tempestuous concerns of
business, perpetually meeting with unpleas
ant occurrences and hourly experiencing
ingratitude and unkindness, how dreary
would be our situation, had we not a holy
retreat, where the wasted energies might
recruit, and the disappointments of hope he
sweetly overcome? Where storm might
hear the voice “Be still?” Where encour
agement might be given to constant perse
verance in piety’s path, and the tired wing
replume itself for a still higher flight?”
If it were not for the family circle, many
of our strongest stimulants would be unfelt.
How often would we cease exertion and sit
dowu in despair, were it not for it? Fre
quently when the sickness of defeated ex
pectations has come over us, when resolu
tion has wavered, and even wishes have
grown careless, the thought of home has
Eassed .through our minds, and the nerve
as again been strung. The almost wither
ed flower has raised its head and ceases to
The family circle! What but this recon
ciles the hard laborer to the endurance of
fatigue and suffering? What but this makes
the state of the exile intolerable ? What
but this kindles the imagination of the
dreaming mariner? What but this draws
the sigh from the bosom, when the farewell
to home has been uttered?
The family circle! There dwell the light
of joy, there whisper the promises of hope.
There Jove erects her altar, and inscribes
upon it the names of kindred. There hea
ven’s lasting blessing abides; there heaven’s
foretastes are enjoyed.
Parental anxiety. —Though a parent has
many pleasures, yet has he numerous anxie
ties. The future condition of his children
awaken feelings of an intense character.
Through the longest days and often in the
night-time he has labored to acquire that
amount of property, which will enable him
to leave them comfortable. May not pover
ty, nevertheless, with its gaunt form, invade
his dwelling? When he shall be resting in
the quiet home appointed for weary mortali
ty, his strength gone and his foresight no
longer operating for their good, they may
be drinking the bitter draughts of adversity.
It is not this, however, that excites his most
painful apprehensions. It is for their moral
condition, that he is concerned. He has
spared no efforts for their spiritual welfare.
He has striven to impress them with divine
truth: to place the fear of God before their
eyes; to lead them to avoid vice and make
virtue their constant companion. Character
he has ever held up before them as the rich
est jewel that can be possessed, and by
every motive has urged them to regulate
their passions and govern their lives, by the
pure principles of revelation. But may
they not, despite of all his exertions, deviate
from the path of honor, form unhappy con
nexions, and cause everlasting ignominy to
darken their names? After all his prayers
and tears —after all his instructions and en
treaties may they not forget the lessons of
early life, and become the outcasts of socie
ty? After his dying charge has been deliv
ered to them, after the last tones of his fail
ing voice have been employed in faithful
warnings, after the solemnities of Eternity
have given increased effect to his appeals,
they mav cast off the mild restraints of piety
and run into the wild extravagancies of dis
How tormenting must be such reflections!
Let not the devoted parent, however, de
spair, for the seed sown will not perish—the
fervent expostulation, the honest advice will
follow his children, until they have renouhe
ed sin and yielded themselves to the yoke of
Drunkenness. —A drunken man is a great
er monster than any that is to be found
among all the creatures that Got! has made;
as, indeed, there are fewcharacterswhich ap
pear more despicable and deformed in the
•yes of all reasonable persons than that of
• drunkard. Wine often turns the good
natured man into an idiot, and the choleric
into an assassin. It gives bitterness to re
sentment; it makes vanity insupportable,
and displays every spot of t!e soul in its
utmost deformity.— Spectator.
Music. —Could we estimate the compara
tive value of the pleasures of life, we would
find that the gratification which music im
parts, deserves to be ranked with our high
est enjoyments. It is not experienced at
the expense of principle. The tenderness
of sensibility has not to be destroyed nor
has an opiate to be administered to watchful
conscience, before it can communicate de
light. Its entrance into the mind is not by
a pathway, strewn with the wrecks of reso
lutions and covered with the fragments of
holy hopes. The soul may reflect the light
of Heaven as beautifully and clearly as the
untouched snow, and yet, without the least
violence to its sanctity, derive the greatest
bliss from it. Other pleasures have their
pain, but this has none. Other joys are
succeeded by sorrows but this leaves none.
Did we live in a world, without music,
what elevating happiness would we have ?
Though a sky of ever-changing hue might
cover it, and a robe of unwithering green
adorn it—though flowers might spring up
on every side—though Eden’s loveliness
might deck it, and Heaven’s glory surround
it, yet would it be a cheerless home. It is
music that makes the landscape attractive,
and the grove enchanting. It is this that
renders spring so welcome, arid summer so
agreeable. It is this that leads to wander
upon the stream’s mossy bank, velveted like
a couch for a gay nymph. It is this that
gives solitude a charm, that causes us to
resign human society and court the associa
tion and converse of Nature’s trackless for
The influence of music upon the spirit is
truly wonderful. How often, when inter
course with the world has roughened our
feelings, has the accustomed serenity been
recovered by the soft notes of music ? How
repeatedly has it made our pulses bound,
and our hearts distend? Music! It is this,
that makes earth an heaven —it is this that
makes heaven what it is.
Death. —A wise and due consideration of
our latter end is neither to render us a sad,
melancholy, disconsolate people, nor to ren
der us unfit for the business and offices of
our life, but to make us more watchful, vigi
lant, industrious, sober, cheerful, and thank
ful to that God that hath been pleased thus
to make us serviceable to him, comfortable
to ourselves, profitable to others; and after
all this, to take away the bitterness and sting
of death through Jesus Christ our Lord.
Sin. —ls you would be free from sin, fly
temptation; he that does not endeavor to
avoid the one cannot expect Providence to
protect him from the other. If the first
sparks of ill were quenched, there would be
no flame, for how can he kill who dares not
be angry: or be an adulterer in act who
does not transgress in thought; how can he
be perjured that fears an oath; who defraud
that does not allow himself to covet ?—Pal
Time. —Can it be called living, to pass
our lives in doing nothing ? Can we be said
to make the best improvement of our time,
when we let it slip without procuring any
other satisfaction than such as pass away to
gether with it?

GARDENING WORK FOR JULY.
Busk or Snap Beans. —You may, at any
time in this month plant bush or snap beans
to succeed those sown in the last.
The early sorts are preferable for this
planting, such as white, negro and yellow
Choose, at this season, a piece of ground
in an open situation ; and if you can give
it a moderate dressing, it will be the better.
Let the ground be well dug and laid even,
and if the weather is inclinable to be very
wet, which often happens about this time,
take precaution to guard against it, Other
wise it may prove destructive to the crop.
Should the weather prove dry, it will be
necessary to steep them in soft water for six
or eight hours, before you plant them; they
will in that case come up much sooner and
stronger. It will be also requisite, when
the ground is very dry, to water the drills
before you plant the beans. But let it be
observed, that steeping the beans is necessa
ry only in dry wether.
Let the bush beans that were planted the
last month be frequently hoed, and the
ground he kept constantly loose between
them, which will greatly promote their
Cabbages. —The plants from cabbage
seed, which was sown about the latter end of
May, will be now fit to put out for good.
You may still continue to sow the seeds
of cabbages and savoys where required; if
the rain does not cripple them, they will be
fit to put out in six weeks after sowing, and
will be particularly serviceable in town gar
Onions. —Your spring sown onions will
be fit to take up by the beginning of this
month; let the utmost attention be paid to
this crop; for these are the roots you are
to depend on for winter use; let them be
housed as soon as they aie quite dry and in
Turnips. —About the middle, or towards
the latter end of this month, if the weather
suits, sow your first crop of tupnips.
For sowing this seed, choose an open
situation—dig the ground, and sow the seed
while it is fresh dug—let great care be taken
not to sow the seed too thick, but as regu
larly as possible.
Watering. —Watering should, at this time,
be duly practised in dry weather, to all such
plants as have been lately planted out, till
they have taken root.
This work should be done always in the
evening about two hours before sunset, that
the water may have time enough to soak in
before the sun comes on the plants the next
Sun Flower Oil —We have had some in
quiries as to the method of making sun flow
er oil; and the quantity a bushel of seed
will make; and the uses to which it can be
1. Method of making. The same as that
of linseed, except that the seed must first be
hulled, or its hard envelop taken off. This
is done by machinery with great ease. If
ground with the hull, not half the quantity
of oil can be obtained as when it is hulled.
Any press that will extract the oil of linseed,
will do for sun flower seed.
2. Quantity per bushel. Mr. Mann made
some experiments which are recorded in
the N. E. Farmer, in which only half a gal
lon per bushel was obtained, and the project
was abandoned. He did not hull the seed,
hence the failure. C. A. Barnitz, near Bal
timore, on the contrary, obtained a gallon of
fine oil from a bushel, but his seed was hull
ed, and none was lost by the saturation of
the dry covering. When well managed, a
gallon may be counted upon with certainty.
3. Uses. It makes a very good oil for
lamps, burning clearly and without offensive
smell. It is found to he well adapted for
painting, spreading smooth and frying with
facility. For the table, most* prefer it to
olive oil, being cheaper, and having a more
We may add here, that the quantity of
seed produced on an acre will vary much,
having ranged from 20 to 75 bushels. The
editor of the Baltimore Farmer thinks that
the average on good corn land may be stated
at 50 bushels.
We have no data from which to answer
the inquiries of our correspondent at Can
ton, in regard to the quantity of oil produced
by hemp seed. Hemp seed oil possesses
many of the qualities of linseed oil, and
doubtless might be extracted with equal fa
Ashes on Cotton. —We copy the following
extract from a letter received by the editor
of the Cultivator, from S. W. Cole, Esq., of
Wadesboro, North Carolina.
“This County (Anson,) is a fine faming
section, and is the only county in the State
well adapted to the raising of cotton. Here
we raise a large quantity for this section of
the union, and our planters are devoting
more care to the improvement of their plan
tations. The best manure for cotton is ash
es. My mode for putting it on is this: I run
a scatter furrow, then from a basket or box
scatter about 35 hushes per acie in the fur
row thus opened, and then with a dagon
make the cotton ridge. I tried ashes and
cotton seed as a manure last year, in the
same field, and used the same quantity of
each. The ashes made far the best cotton;
it took an early start, looked green and
fresh, whilst that planted on the ground
manured with cotton seed, looked yellow a
long time, and never recovered the check it
received at first coming up.”
Substitute for Coffee. —A paragraph in a
foreign paper says that in Germany the
seeds of the grapes are fast coming into use
as a substitute for coffee.
Something new under the Sun. —A new
enemy to the cotton planter has made its
appearance in Panola aud De Soto counties,
Mississippi, in the shape of’ inumerable
Snails, which eat up and destroy the plant,
commencing with the leaf, and ending their
repast with the bud. They are apparently
the common sized snail without a shell, such
as may be found adhering to the bark of
trees in wet weather. Several entire cotton
plantations have been I'uined by them,—

rIE subscriber having been for some time engaged
in raising Berkshire stock, would inform those who
feel desirous of improving their Hogs, that he has now
on hand eight or ten SUPERIOR SOWS, selected
from the stock of the best breeders at the North, viz :
From Mr. Lossing, of Albany, New-York, one sow ;
from Mr. C. N. Bement, of Tiiree Hills Farm, near Al
bany, three sows; and from Messrs. A. &G. Brentnall,
of Canterbury, New-York, three sows—together with
some of my own raising, the produce of some of the
above named sows. I have also a boar from Mr. Los
sing, and a very superior boar from Mr. Bement.
My stock of hogs are the produce of the most cele
brated boars ever imported into this country, among
which may be mentioned Reading, Black Prince, Siday,
Ontario, and Jack of Newburg, who are too well known
to require comment. My boar “Marquis,” purchased
from Mr. Bement, was pronounced by that gentleman
superior in point of form to his celebrated boar “Rip
VanWinklc,” (his half-brother,) who received the first
prize at the Fair of the New-York State Agricultural
Society, held at Syracuse in September last: I have
also full blooded China sow, purchased from Mr. Be
ment, whose produce by Marquis, I shall have to dis
pose of this fall. I have one pair of White Hogs, a
large English breed, imported direct from England, and
landed in Savannah in June last; and also a very su
perior Berkshire sow, imported direct, who will shortly
Those who wish to ascertain the quality of my stock
are referred to a communication from Mr. Bement, in
the May number of the Cultivator, accompanying the
portrait of Rip Van Winkle, in which he says: “I sent
last year to Mr. John Bonnei, of White Plains, Georgia,
several breeding sows, and no one, I assure you, has
been more rigid or particular to procure the pure blood,
and the best animals too. Applicants for pigs, in that
section, may depend on procuring from him the real
‘ simeon purcs.’ ” I deem it but justice to myself to
state, that at the Fair of the “ Planter’s Club,” of Han
cock County, held at Sparta, on the 6th of December
last, the only prize awarded for a was given to
“ Black John,” a pig four months and twelve days old,
and weighing 166 pounds that day. The above pig was
bred by myself and sold to Mr. A. E. W. Brown, near
Sparta, and was the only one of mv stock that was
present at the Fair.
It is necessary also to state that full and written ped
igrees, running back to the orioinal stock imported
from England, will be given of every pig pur
chased from me, together wiin a certificate of age.
To the produce of the sow purchased from Mr. Lossing
I can give no pedigree on the mother’s side, not having
been able to procure one from him. I have been par
ticularly careful to obtain full and correct pedigrees, not
only for the purpose of procuring the best stock, but
because without them, no breeder can ascertain wheth
er or not he is really crossing his stock, wltich is ad
mitted by all to be very essential. I believe that 1 have
been at more trouble and greater expense, than any
other man in Georgia, in obtaining the very best hogs,
invariably ordering the best without limitation of price.
1 have contracted for, and will receive this fall, from
Mr. A. B. Allen, of Buffalo, New-York, a very superi
or young hoar, the produce of his best importation of
last fall; so that I shall constantly have a cross fro®
the best and most celebrated boars, both of this coun
try and England. Persons wishing to procure the gen
cine breed are invited to call and view my stock, and
all who may order pigs are assured that they will re
ceive those that are not only full blooded, but pure as
imported. I freely challenge a comparison of my stock
with that of any other breeder of Bcrkshires in Geor
gia, and am confident that they will prove themselves
equal, if not superior, to any in the Slat#. At any rate
I am perfectly willing that the character of my stock
should be either raised or sunk by the event of such a
comparison. Os this fact, however, the put,lie may
rest assured, that I am determined not to be surfas
sed,and if 1 do not have the best hogs, it will be be
cause money will not procure them. My Sows will
commence littering in July or August, after which time
I shall be pleased to furnish pigs to any who may favor
me with their orders. My price for pigs is invariably
Twenty Dollars per pair; no pigs being offered for sale
that are not fully equal to those sold by other breeders.
The hospitality of my house will be freely extended to
all who may pay me a visit, cither with a view of pur
chasing pigs, or for the pleasure of viewing fine stock.
P. S. Orders for Pigs accompanied with the Cash,
will always secure a preference; otherwise, the first
applicants will be first served, and due notice given
when the pigs will be ready for delivery.
