Thomas Moore, of Bertie, U.C. informs us that his crop of Indian Corn this year, will probably be as good as at any former time. He soaked it in saltpetre, planted early, and kept free from weeds. One great reason of the inferior appearance of the corn the present year, is the slovenly manner in which the hoe is used, if it be used at all. – Black Rock Gaz.

Or hide, for a moment, her Lord from her eyes. [COM.]

Mr. Rudd, from Rev.xiv, 13, at the Episcopal Church, of which he had long been a member. Major Ray was born in Litchfield, Conn. December 9, 1771. He was a child of song from his earliest years, and from the age of ten to nearly the last hours of his existence, has been in the habit of furnishing the moral and instructing effusions of his pen to the American press; but as a necessary concomitant with genius, he was the man of sorrow and misfortune, often having to contend with “Poverty’s unconquerable bar.”
