PERFECTION IN VARMING. First, drain well your land, or your land will drain you, Than this, depend on it, (here's no maxim more true If from each acre of land you'd reap a large rick, F Muck's the mother of money," so lay it on thick; Each weed is a thief, and should be banished the land, Extirpate the whole breed, then, by hoe or by hand As each root doth bore downward in search of its food Suhsoiling, you'll find will elTeet a great good. Attend, then, my friends, to the maxims I've written, And soon you will find that perfection you've hit on. Chat Moss, near Manchester, Jane 22, 1845. R. THE FmsT "RoN ON THE BANK."—It may be worth men- tioning that the first run upon bankers took place in 1667 being in consequence of the panic caused by the Dutch fleet entering the Thames and destroying the ships at Sheerness and Chatham. —Messrs. Child and Co.'s, Temple-bar, is the oldest banking firm in London, and they still have their books of Charles the First s time, including the private account of Oliver Crom well, who banked with them. These documents muat be peculiarly in. teresting to the antiquary. DESTROVINO RATS.—The worka at Hurlet, in Scotland, were lately overrun with rats to such a degree, that it became abso- lutely necessary to adopt summary measures for totally extirpa- ting the destructive vermin. The following means were resorted to. and they were attended with the most perfect success. A number of corks, cut down as thin as sixpences, were roasted or stewed io grease, and then placed in the way of the rati. The dish was greedily devoured as a special delicacy, and, as was an- ticipated, they all died of indigestion. A lady, seeing at the window of a linen-draper, who bad not long been in businesa, that very common lure, The goods of this shop selling under prime cost," stepped into a friend's, who happened to live within two or three doors, acd inquired whether he thought his neighbour was really selling under prime cost, and would let her have any good bargains." As to bargains," replied her friend, "I am really at loss to answer but with reapert to selling under pnme cost, that, I can positively assure yoo, must be impossible—for to my certain knowledge, be has never paid a single farthing foraaytbtDc he has in his shop."
