The American Silk Grower’s Guide,says: ° fall ie V! irielies of Muiberries for silk, me Chinese mulberry, or morns multicaulis, appears that which is most eminently entitled to preference. It originated in the elevated regions of China, a country famous from an tiquity for its silk, and renowned for its in dustry ; a parallel to our own in its climate and divers latitudes. It is to this tree that the disciples of Confucios acknowledge their in debtedness for tl>e prosperity and solidity of their empire. The morns multicaulis, since its introduction into France, seems destined to replace, every where, the common white i mulberry, fir the nourishment of the silk worm, such is its decided superiority over allj others. The tree is beautiful and of rapid growth. This mulberry differs from ail oth ers in the property which the roots possess of; throwing up numerous flexible stalks; the great length the stalks acquire in a short time ; and the facility with which it is propagated from layers; also from the remarkable size l Which the thin, soft and tender leaves speed ily acquire, and the promptitude with which they are renewed. The silk which the worms form from the food afforded by this plant, is not only of superior quality, as has been abundantly proved in France, but cocoons are of unusual size. The leaves, from their extraordinary dimensions, being gathered; with important economy of labor and of time, j and from their superior nutricious qualities, j they are preferred by the silk worms to all others.” The author of the Silk Grower’s Guide, in Smother section of l>is valuable work, commu nicates this important fact, and one that! should he borne in mind by every American citizen : “ Mr. William Carpenter, now of Lisbon, Conn., has manufactured silk at Spitalfields, in London, for twenty years, and is perfectly acquainted with the winding, warping, and weaving of plain silks, such as sarcenets, sa tins, Gros de Naples, Florentines, plushes and velvets ; also figured silks, florets, tohine, tis sues, ;ind Damasks, all of which require very different kinds of silk. During the last six months he has woven many pounds of silk, of American growth, and he has sev.n many samples of American silk far superior to the Bengal, China an 1 French silks, and nearly equal to the best Italian. He has known Italian silks to he sold for a dollar an ounce in England, before it was manufactured ; and the average price is about seven dollars a pound. At the present time the most inferior kinds of manufactured silk imported from England, France and China, are sold in this country for sixteen dollars a pound. And as the cost and fair profit of manu facturing cannot exceed seven dollars, it leaves the enormous price of nine dollars a pound for the raw silk, which price the people of America are now paying to the people of Italy and France.” The same author, in his work before named, and in that section where he estimates the produce of silk, of land and of labor, says : “ J shall close this section with a calcula tion and estimate, whicn has been formed with very particular reference to the best in formed in America.” “ A dwarf mulberry plantation, of a single acre, with the trees set in rows ten feet asun der and two and a half feet in the row, will contain 1,7:23 trees, each tree at six (sav two or three in the South) years of age, will pro-! dtice, as has been estimated, twelve pounds of leaves in a season ; and twelve pounds o leaves, yielded by each single tree, will pro duce 3,000 cocoons ; and 3,000 cocoons will produce one pound of reeled silk, or 1,72 pounds to the acre; ora pla ton tit ion of 100 acres will yield 17,280 pounds of silk when well reeled, which, at the very low estimate of four dollars a pound, would brings69,l2o. This estimate is founded on the calculation of a single crop in the whole season ; hut in this favored climate, and with our prolonged sum mers, we must calculate on successive crops in a season.” ***#### “ At the establishment of the Harmony So ciety, at Economy, in Pennsylvania, on the Ohio River, silk is cultivated, anil some figur ed silk vestings have been produced which may vie with the most beautiful fabrics of Europe. The celebrated Mr. Rapp, who Is the patriarch of this establishment, hesitates not to affirm that the raising of silk is as easy as the raising of wheat, and much less labo rious.” A Real Dialogue. —Belvidera: It seems cruel to kill so many animals for their fur— thirty-six poor little squirrels put io death to make a muff for us!” Emily: “ Yes, it is cruel! Why don’t the monsters take their skins off without killing them ?” The Constitution of the United States. — At a late convivial party, where the song and the glass went round, and when our thoughts and feelings were rather of a social than a political character, an old acquaintance of ours being called on for a sentiment, gave “ The Constitution of the United States, the magnificent stranger of the world !” We do not know whether the idea originated on that occasion, it was at all events new to us, and even amid the wine cup were struck with its beauty and boldness. It is true there is a magnificence in our Constitution, and equally so, that in its vigor, its originality, its adapta tion to the march of free principles—it stands “ the magnificent stranger of the world!” It I was ushered into existence at a period of re volutionary excitement, when the elements of society were shaken to their foundation, and at a time when the loftiest spirits held the sway. It was planned and perfected bv sages, as renowned for their private virtues as their political foresight, embracing in its com position all that was good, and rejecting all that was bad, and which had involved in ruin the proudest edifices in ancient times—it was presented to the world, stately, unassailable, and inimitable, not alone of Corinthian or of Doric order, but the Chef-de’mivrc of ail that was durable and excellent and beautiful. Where is the American who is not proud of this stranger. It was a stranger when it first arose amid the Kings and the Princes of i the earth. It is a stranger now, companion less, and towering above all else that the wis dom of man has framed.—Sf. Joseph Times. A WINTER MORNING ODE. Inscribed to the author of - Rights o f lVomen.” When breakfast bells peal out at seven, And sleepy clerks from bed are driven, To re-commence their cares— When chamber maids in slipshod bustle, Their mops and brooms begin to rustle, On all the painted stairs— How sweet to lock your chamber door, And snug in blankets calmly snore, On a cold winter’s morning. You hear a female voice, perhaps— And sundry inauspicious raps Break in upon your dreams — That rises high, and shriller grows, These come to horrid kicks and blows, “ Like mad” the woman seems ! But oh ! how safely you are hid, Your drooping eye ne’er lifts its iid, Nor heeds the lady’s warning. Visions of smoking hot beefsteaks, And rcaking piles of buckwheat cakes May tempt you oft to rise. And so you gently lift the clothes— The air pops in and wrings your nose, And off the tempter flies, For breakfast you had rather loose. Than one more fine refreshing snooze, While Sol the earth is warming. And then ther ’s little Jane, below, Who on the pantrv si elf will stow A plate of something nice, A herring broiled—some buttered toast— Os venison saved from last night’s roast, A most delicious slice— Oh! then sleep on, and bravely brook The angry tongue of Airs.

RESTORATIVE RILLS, FOlt THE CUKE OF LIVER DISEASES AND INDIGESTION, And for restoring a healthful action in the Stomach and Bowels. THESE PILLS ate decidedly the most superior that have ever yet been offered to the Southern public. The healthy influence which they exercise in correcting the morbid derangments of the Liver, Stomach and Bowels, renders them at once the most useful, as well as the safest and surest remedy which can be used in the diseases for which they arc recom mended. The remedial powers of these Pills are confined to diseases of die Liver, and all those Sympathetic, Se condary, and Complicated Affections which depend on a derangment of that important organ, as Dyspepsia, or Indigestion, Enlargement of the Spleen. Rheumatism , dependant on biliary derangment, Palpitation of the Heart, when sympathetic and symptomatic of'diseased Liver, Similated Consumption, from enlargement of the Liver, encroaching upon the cavity of the Lungs, producing irritation, imflammation, and finally suppu ration in these organs : Obstructions of the Menstrual dow, from enlargement of the Liver and Spleen, acting in such conditions as general reservoirs of the blood, di verting and absorbing those due proportions destined for the healthful supply of other neighboring organs ; low, nervous Despondency, dull, heavy Spirits, brood ing over imaginary evils, Lingering Debility, and oth er unhealthy conditions of the system, which frequently follow severe attacks of Bilious Fever, or are con tracted from residences in low, sickly sections of coun try ; Secondary Sypilis, in which the Biliary Secre tions are frequently much deranged, and the general health and constitution thereby much impaired ; dispo sition to attacks of Bilious Cholic entirely removed, and a most excellent remedy in Yellow Jaundice. These Pills will cure Bilious Fever, and Ague anti Ft ur,and are perhaps the very best remedy for pre venting attacks of these diseases, by their great virtues in cleansing the Stomach and Bowels of irritating ac cumulations, and restoring the system to healthful and vigorous action.
