Mt i t:1 ;
Softer Lip Kiss Thee to Rest.
Other arms shall twine around thee,
Other lips shall meet with thine.
Other voices greet thee fondly,
For thou never canst be mine,
Other hearts may love and cherish,
Others worship at thy shrine,
But with me thy smiles shall perish,
I must every thought resign.
Other smiles shall beam upon thee,
Other hands shall smooth thy hair;
Other whispers breathe " I love thee,"
Thou shalt be another's care.
When the silver moonlight brightens
Thou shalt seek another's breast.
Sweeter words thy soul shall lighten,
Softer lips kiss thee to rest.
Ere the leaves of autumn wither,
Ere the cold winds sweep the skies,
I shall have forgot forever
The effulgence of thine eyes ;
Thou shalt be as one that never
Refined supreme within my heart ;
Every" sacred tie shall sever,
Every tender smile depart.
IIop-gkowixg. A correspondent lately
presented the Rural New Yorker the fol
lowing as the method of hop-growing
in Kent, England:
The plants are raised from the cutting
of the old stocks, made in the spring.
Every cutting should have three joints.
These cuttings or sets are planted in rows,
With the two lower joints below the sur
face of the soil, about three inches apart
in the rows, and the latter one foot apart.
If the ground ia clean, they need but
little attention the first season. The fol
lowing spring the sets are taken up and
' planted in the yard. To set out a yard
right, the planter requires as many small
sticks one foot long as he will have hills.
A land-measuring chain is the best thing
to lay out the hills. Take white or red
paint and mark on the chain six feet
apart. A cord or garden line will stretch
O o as to bring the hills at unevan dis
tances apart. Our hop yards are all
t rlnnhi1 w ith the hills six feet apart. The
Bmall stocks are placed in the ground by
the marks of paint on the chain.
The next thing done is to prepare the
soil in the hills lor planting. Dig the hill
up one foot deep, and mix a shovelful
of well-rotted manure with the soil ; place
the stick in the center of the hill ; then
jdant the sets, three in every hill, in a
slanting direction, the tops of the sets
O close together on the surface, with the
upper joints a little above grdund ; the
roots of the sets are trimmed pretty
close before planting. The young gar
dens, as we call them in England, are
not poled the first year, as it is said to
weaken the stalk. Two stakes, six or
.eight feet long, are sufficient the first
year. The second year, two poles, four
teen or sixteen feet long, are set. If the
poles are cut shorter, three are put to a
hill. They are placed firmly in the ground,
one foot from the center of the hill. The
land is dug with potato-forks every spring
and the old vines are cut off with a knife.
The space between the hills is cultivated
with horse cultivators three times during
the sifihmcr, and the hills are rounded
up with five or six shovelfuls of earth about
The hop is known to be ripe by the
leaves closing and the inside of the leaf
beincr covered with a bright yellow sub
stance. The hops are packed by the poor
or .London and large towns, who grow
- fat and healthy during this merry season.
Every Slav's picking is taken to the dry
ing-house and dried on a tightly-stretched
clotS made of horse hair. Great care- is
taken in drying not to scorch or overdry
them. Brimstone is burned to give them
a deeper yellow color. When the hops
ar dried they are shoveled into a eool-
. ing-roora and packed in bags 7 s leet
long and G feet round, holding about 160
pounds per bag.
A dry loam or gravel soil suits hops
best. They will not thrive on wet land

suits best, as the wind often injures the
crops A ton per acre is a good tair crop ;
3.000 pounds a large crop. One more
thing the vines are trained to the poles
by tvinsr them with rushes. Ihis is wo

Subject fou Scientific Investigation.
The OreaonUtn savs, several times recent
ly the kerosene lamp chimneys used in
our office, have exploded in a most unac
countable manner. For instance : last
evening just before dusk one of them was
beard to snap and the broken glass to
fly with considerable force against the
reflector above and the case below. An
immediate examination showed that an
oval piece was thrown out from one-side
of the chimney just at the swell, about
two inches -wide and three inches 'long.
The chimney was, otherwise, uninjured,
but of course, useless. No one was in the
room, aud the lamp had not been lighted,
trimmed or touched for more than fifteen
hours. The oil was nearly exhausted in
the reservoir. A few days ago, another
chimney burst in the same manner pre
cisely, though in that case the lamp had
been filled and trimmed about fifteen
minutes before, but had not been lighted.
In the last mentioned case, the chimney
fitted tightly on the lamp, but in the other
cose, it wasperfectly loose barely stand
ing upon the lamp, without however.

ASTORIA LOT SALE.
The proprietor of the town of Astoria, in
order to pay his debts and carry forward his
improvements, offers to the public the greater
part of the unsold lots within the corporate
limits, on terms that will arrest attention
and tempt investment.
The property will-be divided into six hun
dred parcels, and distributed among the
purchasers by lot. One-half the parcels will
be single lots, no one of which is worth less
than $7Q, and many of them are worth $75
and 100 each, at the present selling rates.
The other half will be prize parcels of two,
four and six lots each, and single lots rang
ing in value from one hundred to six hun
dred dollars, and one house and lot valued
at one thousand dollars, and one new cottage
residence of eight rooms (not all finished),
with stone cellar under the whole, together
with three lots, all as one parcel, valued at
five thousand dollars. All the parcels will
be sold at one uniform price of fifty dollars
As soon as the shares are all taken, the
distribution will be made by a committee,
consisting of the County Judge, County
Clerk and Sheriff, and if either of them is
absent, the others will choose a person to fill
the vacancy. The numbers of the lots com
posing each parcel will be written on sep
erate ballots, and sealed up and placed in a
box. The purchasers' names will be written
on as many separate ballots as they have sub
scribed for shares, and sealed up and placed
in another box. The boxes being well
shaken, a ballot will be drawn from each,
and the name and the description of the prop
erty drawn will be recorded by the Clerk ;
and then another will be drawn and recorded,
until all are drawn. The record of the draw
ing will be certified by the committee of
officers, and warranty deeds will be immedi
ately executed in accordance therewith, and
delivered to the purchasers, or to their au
thorized agents, who will pay the purchase
money on receipt of the deed. The title is a
patent certificate under the Donation Law.
This is not a lottery, but a joint purchase
of several parcels of land, with an agreement
to treat them as of equal value for the pur-
fose of distribution, and to assign them by
ot, as a Court would make partition.
Situate io the mouth of the Columbia river,
at the only spot where a town can be built
with a harbor of suilicient capacity to shelter
a large amount of shipping, and accessible
by both ocean ships and river boats in all
weathers, Astoria can have no rival as the
enter pot for the commerce of the river.
Rival towns have been projected, but scarce
ly the ruins of a house now mark their sites
while Astoria has grown steadily up to the
condition of a respectable little city, and in
creases faster every year than it did the
Un the two points between which slims
enter the river are the two forts, Stevens and
Hancock, in full view of tlifctown, with their
wharves, warehouses, barracks and officers'
quarters, each a respectable village, where
the Government has entered upon a a series
of works, which, with their garrison, will
involve the disbursement of millions of dol
lars. And, considering that this is the gate
to an interior country of three embryo States
besides Oregon, all glittering with veins of
gold and silver, no expense is likely to be
spared in guarding it. 1 he travel and traffic
between mat region ana ran jfrancisco is
already immense. It will never cease, nor
cease increasing. And there, at the gate,
will stand Astoria; and all the steamshins
and river boats must come to her wharves
as they ply the ever increasing commerce of
five States. Three regular lines of steam
ships are now employed, and at certain sea
sons extra trips are made. At present, thev
extend their voyages inland a hundred miles
to Portland, in pursuance of a habit nat-
urallv formed when trade was confined to
the Willamette river, on which Portland is
situated. But the reasons for it are dimin
ishing, and the reasons for changing it are
asing; and it is generally believed that
very soon the ocean steamers will terminate
their voyages at Astoria, and leave the in
land carrying to river boats of but a twen
tieth part their cost, Portland, it is hoped,
will not be injured by the change, but re
lieved from the fear of injury. Hut, what
ever happen s.the prosperity of Astoria is sure
it is now exhibiting a greaterroportionate
increase in building, business and wealth,
than anv other town on fhe Pacific coast.
No real estate is so sure of a constant advance,
and none so lileh to take a sudden rise to
many times its present value. That it is of
fered for sale at home, anions those who
know it best and who can appreciate the lib
erality of the offer, proves that it possesses
all the value and advantages attributed to it.

the direction of a graduate of Yale, for the
education ot their two hundred children.
"Astoria occupies a position, geograph
ical!, which should entitle her to supremacy
in commerce, as the .New Orleans ot the Co
lumbia : and the Astorians maintain that
she is vet destined to attain it. At present,
however, Portland is the umloubted metro
polis, a citv located one hundred miles above
this, not on the Columbia, but on its chief
tributary, the ulamette. this is an anom
aly yet readily explained. The valley of the
Willamette is by far the largest and best ag
ricultural district in the State, and Portland
is its mart : while the region back of Asto
ria is yet forest, with only here and there a
small section subdued, Jbor this good rea

The seventy houses estimated bv Prof.
Wood were at that time more than ahundred,
and since then the largest and most costly
store in the town has been bunt, and a
church, steam saw mill, brewery, and one of
the best tanneries on the Pacific coast, to
gether with wharting and the usual addition
of dwellings and other buildings. Another
church is to be bnilt next season, and a num
ber of houses are under contract. Each sum
mer the carpenters are overtasked. Next
season the demand will be greater than ever.
Workmen of all trades are srreatlv needed.
This is their opportunity, this is everybody' s
opportunity; every person should own some
property at the seaport and summer resort
of Orison. To improve and use, there is
none so eligible for heath, schools and profit
able employment. As merchandise, to sell
for profit, none will give so great an advance
on cost. As a means to lay up money for the
future, no other is so safe, or will return so
many told. Not a ticket but will draw a fafty-
dollar lot, and two-thirds of them will draw
prizes of two, four and six lots each, or a lot
worth trom twice the the cost f the ticket to
a hundred times its cost. In such a rafie

How to Light a Dark Room. If, in a
very narrow street or lane, we look out of
a window with the eye in the same plane
as the outer face of the wall in which the
window is placed, we shall see the whole
of the sky by which the apartment can be
illuminated. If we now withdraw the eye
inward Ave shall gradually lose sight of the
sky till it wholly disappears, which may
take place when the eye is only six or eight
inches from its first position. In such a
case the apartment is illuminated only by
the light reflected from the opposite wall
or the sides of the stones which form the
window ; because if the glass of the win
dow is six or eight inches within the wall,
as it generally is, not a ray of light can
fall upon it. "if we now remove our win
dow and substitute another in which all
the panes are roughly ground on the out
side, and flush with the outer wall, the
light from the whole of the visible sky.
and from the remotest parts of the oppo
site wall, Avill be introduced into the
apartment, reflected from the innumerable
faces or facets which the rough grinding
of the glass has produced. The whole
window will appear as if the sky were be
yond it, and from every point of this lu
minous surface light will radiate into all
parts of the room.
