One pleasant evening in the month of Juno, n man was observed entering me uoruei-s 01 a wood near the Hudson river ; his appearance was that of ;t person above the common rank. The inhabitants of a country village, would have dignified him by tho name ol 'Squire and from his manner would have pronounced htm proud, but those more accustomed to so ciety would inform you that there was some thing like a military air about him.
His horse panted as if it had been pushed for some milos, yet from the owner's frequent stops to carress tho patient animal, lie could not be charged with the want of humanity, but seemed to be nctu. The rider, forsaking a good road for a path leading through the woods, indica ted a desire to avoid the gaze of other trav ellers. He had not left the. He was soon after obliged to dis mount, ravelling having become dangerous, as darkness concealed the surrounding ob jects, except when the lightning's terrific Hash afforded a momentary view of his situation.
A peal louder and of longer duration than any ly heard, which now burst over his head, seemed as if it would rend the woods asunder, was quickly followed by a heavy fall of rain, which penetrated the clothing of the stranger, ere he could gain the shelter of a large oak, which stood at a little, distance. Almost exhausted with the labors of the day, he was about making such disposition of the saddle and his own coat, as would enable him to pass the night with what comfort cir cumstances would permit, when he espied a light glimmering through the trees.
Anima ted with the hope of better lodgings, he de termined to proceed.
The way, which was steep, became attended with more obstacles as he advanced, the soil being composed of clay, which the rain had rendered so soft that his feet slipped every step. The watch dog began barking, which brought the owner of the mansion to the door. But the fanner undertook the task, and af ter conducting the new comer into the room where his wife was seated, he led the horse to a well stored barn, and there provided ibr him most bountifully. On reing the trav eller, he observed, " That's a noble animal of yours, sir " " Yes," was the reply, " and I am sorry to misuse him, so as to make it necessary to give much trouble with the care of him ; but I have yet to thank you for your kindness to both of us.
Hut Susan," added lie, turning to the hostess with a half reproachful look, " why have vou not got the gentleman something to eat? At her husband's remonstrance, she was readily engaged in repairing her error, by preparing a plentiful repast.
During the meal there was much interesting conversation between the three. As soon as the worthy countryman perceived 'that his guest had sat isfied his appetite, he informed him that it was now the hour at which the family usual ly performed their evening devotions, invi ting him to bo present. The im itation was accepted in these words : " It would afford me the greatest pleasure to commune with my Heavenly Preserver.

Afler thanking the. Creator for his many mercies, and asking a blessing on the inhabitants of he house, he continued; "and now, Almighty-Father, if it is thy holy will hat we shall obtain a place and name among the nations of the earth, grant that we shall be entitled to show our gratitude for thy goodness by endeavoring to obey thee, liless us with wisdom in our coun cils, success in battle, and let our victories be tempered with humanity.

My name is leorge Washington. Surprise kept the listener silent for a mo ment ; then after unsuccessfully repeating his invitation to partake of some refreshments, he hastened to call two negroes, with whose as sistance he placed the horse on a rail of tim ber that was lying near the door, and soon conveyed the General to the other.
On his return to tho house, be iound that while lie was engaged in making preparations for con veying the horse across the river, his illustri ous Married bi str8 Montpelier Vermont layers had succeeded in persuading the woman to accept a token of remembrance, which the family are proud of exhibiting to this day.

A corres pondent of the Maine Cultivator gives the following of the most; extraordinary preservation of apples we recollect to have seen.
He savs : " I send you an apple which T bought in the fall of 1S4'. Among others it was put into inv cellar, in open casks; and a'lout the first of January,I overhauled them, and put three bar- els away, packed in plaster ot Vans first a ayer of plaster, then a layer of apples and so allernatciv, tut the barrels were filled. They were then headed up, and stood till the early part ot iast summer, when I overhauled and assorted them, and put them in a box in layers of dry oak sawdust. The bqx had a lock and key, and has been kept locked up, only when we got apples out to use.
Upon unlocking the box and taking the saw dust out, to our surprise there were three apples in the box, and all of them per fectly sound. The apple I send you having been kept in a warm room, has commenced, as you perceive, to rot. The above is sub mitted respectfully, for the benefit of all lov ers of good apples. New Variety of Wheat, for Sow ing Late. Some years since Mr. It is a very large and beautiful white shirred berry, and makes the first best llnur.

Langworlhy, of Greece, and Thomas II. Hyatt, of Rochester, have each six bushels, and Gen. Harmon, of Wheatland, twelve bushels sown, from which, if the, result is fa vorable, those who have a well manured corn field, which they may wish to make a cheap wheat crop from, can, we p, procure seed enough to try the experiment. It is sometimes very desirable to follow corn or potatoes with wheat, but from the lateness of the season, our Flint, and other favorite wheats are so far behind in ripening as to rust and be lost; and if a variety is discover ed that may be sown late, and yet ripen be fore the heats of July destroy it, it is a great desideratinn,and worthy of being looked after.
