THE EDITOR'S SON CJ.
The editor sits at his table,
"Writing as well as he's able,
Paragraphs, leader and puff ;
His scissors beside him are lying,
"While he is in agony trying, . ,
Of copy to furnish enough'.
Toil, toil, toil !
"What a weary life is juinc !
"Wasting the precious mid-night oil
In leader and column, and line,
"Working from morn till night,
"Working from night till morn,
Oh!. why was printing press ever made,
Oh ! wbjr was the editor born ?
Toil, toil, toil!
And whose is the gain when won !
"Whose are the trophies we achieve,
And for whom are the trophies won ?
To stand in the foremost rank
Of each hard fought party fray
To share the toil and only get
Abuse and neglect for pay.
Toil, toil, toil !
"What a thankless task is oura
To bake the bread and press the cheese,
That Senator Jones devours !
To sit on a three-legged stool,
"Whilst others have hair-stuffed seats,
To prepare the hash and cook up the stew,
But never to tasto the meats !
Toil, toil, toil!
As the constant drop on the stone,
So the ceaseless, endless work,
Wears away body and soul !
Though the po't splutter and write,
Though the orator bully and brawl,
If it were not for the editor's pen,
"What were the use of it all ?
Toil, toil, toil !
Christians, Mormons and Jews..
Is there a man on this weary earth
But grows richer by reading the news ?
Richer, richer, richer,"
As they read it by sunlight and taper
And yet there isn't a soul of them all
But grudges to pay for his paper.
Toil, toil, toil !
There's a row iu the very next street !
Somebody is going to mvrder his wife,
And I must be toute-suite.
Yesterday at this time,
Two policemen got choked in a riot ;
And so it goes from morning till night,
And an editor never knows quiet.
Science of Agriculture.
Much has been said and written,
about the advantages of agricultural
colleges, in order that the farmer may
obtain a scientific education. There
is no doubt but science, united with
thoroughly practical habits of ob
servation, is of immense value to the
.agriculturist. We do not know but
m .fanner might educate himself in
many "branches of science, without
the aid of an agricultural college.
Certainly every library eliould have
jx fair collection of elementary scien
tific works. We arc led to these re
marks by reading a pamphlet just
issued in Scotland, on the advantages
of science to a practical farmer, and
extract below what the author says
about botany. We should like to
.cee on the shelves of every farmer's
"book case, a copy of Gray's First
Lessons in Botany, and Darlington's
Agricultural Botany :
The agriculturist has to do with
plants every day. Without having
some slight knowledge of botany, it
is difficult to distinguish a growing
stem of oats from that of barley until
it approaches the time when the ears
are about to shoot out. I do not
mean to say that the agriculturist
should be so conversant with the
science as to be able to give, off
hand, the technical name, &c, of
every plant he may meet with ; but
to possess some knowledge of the in
formation the botanist has recorded,
is a very useful acquirement. The
botanist, after describing the struc
ture and functions of a plant, and the
order, &c, to which it belongs, pro
ceeds to inform us as to its habits
and the uses to which it is, or may
be, applied, as also, in what latitudes,
altitudes, situations, and descriptions
of soil it is to be found growing nat
urally in the greatest perfection, and,
likewise, of the effects which may be
produced bj culture, &c. The science
also explains the method of impreg
nating one plant by' another, and
thereby producing new and useful
varieties, and has contributed valua
Lie practical information regarding
the plants which impregnate each
other when growing in close prox
imity. By paying attention to the infor
mation imparted by botany, and ex
amining the natural products of the
land, the agriculturist has means
within his power of forming a more
correct opinion of any soil and cli
mate of which he has not had practi
cal experience thau he possibly could
do without having recourse to the in.
lications to be obtained by this
science. This is of great importance
to an agricultural settler in a new
country, where the vegetable pro
ducts to be found growing on the
land are probably the surest possi
bly the only indications of the qual
j of the soil and climate which at
the time he may be able to obtain,
ibis is a beneGt of no mean order to
he agricultural settler in a new coun
try, as his success in life will depend
greatly 0Q ihe quaj. of v
and climate he may Select for his fu
ture home -but it also applies, al
though m a less degree, to the re
moval of na agriculturist from one
district to another in our own coun.
When the stock farmer goes to a
distance to inspect a pastoral ran
with the view of making
ments for becoming the occupier he
moy or he may not see the btock or
know the number thereof, which it
has formerly maintaiued ; 'but he has
the opportunity of exam.iuin.-r tQe
herbage (the various grasses, heaths,
and other plants,) and can thereby
form a very correct opinion of t,he
quality and value of the holding.
Should he there meet with plants of
which he has not bad any practical
experience, botany is prepared to
supply the want, and give all neces
Most of the arable land in this
country has been so long under culti
vation that most part of the indigen
ous plants are at least temporarily
banished or extirpated', and have, or
should have, given place to those
which the occupier desires to pro
duce ; yet, even here botanical indi
cations are not altogether valueless
to the agriculturist, when be goes to
inspect a piece of land of which he
has not had any former experience.
I dare say most of you may have
found yourselves occasionally takiDg
advantage ot botany when inspecting
a grass park, and, from the plants
you might Gnd growing therein, mak
ing some such remarks on the soil,
as " It is wet or dry, deep or shallow,
stiff or light," &c. Or, if the land
was under the plough at the time of
inspection, yon may have found your
selves examining the hedges, if any,
and probably poking about the sides
of the fences, to ascertain what natu
ral plants might be growing on the
undisturbed strip of land.
All of us are aware of the great
benefits which agriculture has derived
from this science, in the production of
new and improved varieties of plants
by hybridisation, such as in those "of
the turnip and clover, &c. ; and the
information the science has contrib
uted in regard to the impregnation of
one plant by another has been found
to be of great value in the growing
of turnip and other seeds. From
these, and from many other circum
stances which could be adduced, I
am under the impression that the sci
ence of botany has been of valuable
service to agriculture.
Tkepaked Coffee. The new ad
vertisement of J. F. Joues & Co.,
corner of Second and Alain streets,
Portland, in our paper to-day, speaks
of another article of home production
to which we desire to ask special at
tention of our readers. The coffee
prepared by Messrs. Joues & Co., is
certainly superior to any other brand.
The demand for it where it has been
introduced, as well as the words of
those who use it commend it lo all.
Ask for this quality of coffee, and if
your grocer has none on band, com.
bine to have him send for some on
trial. We recommend Jones' Coffee.

ZsS- Newspapers, by enhancing the
value of property in their neighborhood,
and giving the locality in which they arc
published a reputation abroad, benefit all,
particularly if they are merchants or real
estate owners, thrice the amount yearly of
the sum they pay for their support. Be
sides, every spirited citizen has a laudable
pride in having a paper of which he is not
ashamed, oven though he should pick it
up in New York or Washington. A good
looking, thriving, live newspaper helps to
sell property, gives character to the lo
cality, and iu all respects is a desirable
public convenience. If, from any cause,
the matter in the lpcal or editorial columns
should not be quite up to your standard,
do not cast it aside and pronounce it of no
account, until you are satisfied that there
has been no moi'6 labor bestowed upon it
than is paid for. If you want a good read

Don't Believe ix Advertising. The
following from an exchange upon this sub
ject expresses our sentiments, and we
therefore give it to our readers in full :
u The man wrfo ' doesnrt believe in adver
tising' is all the while doing what he de
precates. He hangs coats outside of his
door, or puts dry goods in his wiudows
that's advertising, lie has printed cards
lying on his counter that's advertising.
He sends out drummers through the coun
try, or puts his name on his wagon that's
advertising, lie labels his articles or his
manufactures that's advertising. If he
has lost his cow, he puts a written notice
in tho Tost Offices, or tells hi3 sister-in-law
and that's advertising, loo. lie has
his name put up in gilt letters over his
door what is that but adveiiising ? lie
paints his shop green or red j or if r; tailor,
he wears the latest styles ; if a doctor, he
has the boys call him out of church in
haste ; if aa auctioneer, he bellows to at
tract the attention of passers-by j if a
heavy merchant, he keep a huge pile of
boxes on his sidewalk in front of his store
and all for advertising. " A man can't
dc business without advertising, and the
question is, whether to call to bis aid the
engine that moves the world the printing
press, with its thousands of messengers
working night and dav, tho ateam engines
adding to its repeating capacity untold
power and miraculous speed ; or, reject
ing all these, to go back to the days when
newspapers, telegraphs and railroads were
unknown. "But advertising costs money!"
