NEW ENGLAND FARMER - BOSTON, SATURDAY MORNING, JULY 2. 1853. tide shoots welt filled with pods, which will ripen before frost ; whereas, when not shortened in, the beans on the upper ends of the vine cannot perfect themselves in time to be saved. It is unfair to expect & gill of sap to travel through forty feet of vine wrapped around a pole, and make a perfect bean at the extreme end of it. For tkt Nttt England Farmtr. A NEW INSECT. Mr. Brown : I have noticed in some of the ae- ricultoral papers, accounts of the depredations of the canker worm ; but in our vicinity an enemy has appeared upon our fruit trees, the apple and cherry, which threatens to destroy our entire crop, bo tar as 1 can learn, the toe is a stranger to our fruit-growers, and forsomedayswas thought to be the canker worm ol former days ; but on ex amination it appears very different. It is similar to our former foe in some points it is spread upon all parts of the tree, upon every branch, and when the limb is shaken, it drops from it, suspended by a web, then winds up its web and again gains its position on the tree. The trees, when Daaiy eat en, present a dry and sere appearance. In all these points it is like the canker worm, as it is al so in size, and to a casual observer, in passing by an orchard, it would be pronounced their work. In many respects it is dissimilar, and evidently belongs to another class of insects. The canker worm is brown, this is nearly white, with two Ion gitudinal stripes running its whole length ; the canker worm is slow of motion, this is very quick and moves rapidly trom place to place in all di rections to escape an enemy the canker worm moves forward by doubling or opening and throwing forward its head and forepart; this is pro vided with 16 legs 6 near the head, 8 near the middle, and 2 at the tail, and ubcs them with ereat celerity in running. The canker worm has no shelter upon the tree, but lies out upon the leaf or branch ; this tonus itself a house by webbing the corner ot a leaf, into which it retreats on the Brat appearand of dinger ; tho canker worm rare ly eats the fruit, it it can get leaves ; this is now eating into and spoiling and disfiguring the fruit. Of the insect which produces them, I know nothing. My neighbors say about 3 or 4 weeks since, uiey noticed an aounaanceoi smau miners oi an ash color, and they may have proceeded from them. It this insect, with its habits, are unknown we have before us a work of careful 'observation as the first descent of these depredators threatens more injury to our fruit than any other insect which has attacked our trees. If there is noti enough to spoil my trees and fruit entirely now, I am sure that double the present number on those of my trees which are most eaten would not leave me an apple or a leaf remaining, l wish lor in formation on this subject arc they in other pla ces? Or is Sherburne exclusively lavored with their presence? Have they been known before? if so, can they be prevented or driven off R. C. Stone. Sherburne, June 21, 1853. Remarks. We Tegret that this article came a few hours too late for last week's paper. The insects spoken of have been numerous in this State, in New Hampshire, Vermont, Connecticut and New York, and probably in other States : but we have heard only from those mentioned above. Your description of the insect generally agrees with our observation ; but we can find only si x legs instead of sixteen, as you say. The head is shaped like that of an otter, and near the back extremity of the under jaw there are two legs, one on each side, a short space intervenes, and then there are four legs, two on each side. Half way along the body, there are two protuberances which strongly resemble the spinneret of the house-spider, and two more of nearly the same shape at the tail or termination of the body. These do not ter mint ae with claws as do the legs, but are blunt and have the appearance of being soft and spongy, and if used in walking, operate as does the flies foot on the pane of glass. We are inclined to think that these instruments are used both for walking and spinning its web, though in our examination of the insect under a pretty good glass, we did not see it spin as we have the spider. We have received several short communications relating to the insect which we shall publish, but look, with some impatience, as we know many others do, to Professor Harris for a better knowledge of this new invader.

The first exhibition of fruits, flowers and vegetables, under the auspices of the Concord Farmers' Club, was held in the Court House in this town, on Saturday, June 18. The contributions were abundant, and the flowers choice, rare, and various beyond expectation. The season was too early for a great display of vegetables, but the turnip-rooted beets, and summer squashes, exhibited by Judge Eloar, were very large and fine, and the strawberries superb. The contributions of wild flowers were abundant. Among them we noticed the superb Laurel, the delicate and fragrant Linnaea, the charming Eglantine, the spotted Geranium, Irises, the graceful verticillate Lupin, and many others. Among the roses, we noticed that finest of all yellow roses, the yellow Persian, the yellow Harrison, with its sweet-briar odor, the White English tree rose, one of the finest and most vigorous roses, and, after a long season of neglect, coming rapidly into favor again ; theBlaitk Tuscany, very dark ; that finest of all white roses, Madame Hardy, Red Moss, White do , of which latter, Mr. Wheildon Bhowed one cluster containing thirteen buds; that finest of all perpetuals.

The differences which exist between the various branches of the human family, are perhaps no where more strikingly displayed than in their national holidays. Each nation has its own pecu liar way of testifying its joy, and making itself hap py. The Englishman celebrates every thing with a glorious dinner: Huge Joints of smoking beef, and vast aldermanio, puddings crammed with plums, are the savory and substantial tokens of his re joicing. His demon strations of joy all tend to the stomach. The Frenchman, on tho other hand, will live on air for a week, for the sake of partici-1 pating in the "grand fete" with which Us holiday is always made memorable. His joyfinds vent in gorgeous pageants, and military displays, and tinsel decorations. His demonstrations are for the eye alone, and are as empty and hollow as the Englishman '8 are substantial. The quiet German keeps his festival in the public garden, making himself happy with sweet music, and sour beer, and theeverlasting pipe. The Irishman celebrates his great days with the shillalah and whiskey bottle the one serving to prostrate his brother patriots, and the other performing the same friendly service for himself. A SpaniBh holiday would be nothing without a bull-fight. The proud and courtly Don does not condescend, like Patrick, to wield the cudgel himself, but calmly looks on while others conquer or die for his amusement. In Ttaly, the holidays are signalized by a queer medley of pious observances and silly masquerades of practical jokes and impracticable prayers of frolic and formulary, grimace and genuflection. The holiday of the African, on the other hand, is a dayof dancing. Naturally careless and light-hearted, his happiness extends clear down to his toes, and finds expression in the rollicking reel and the merry leap. And thus, in the popular festivals of every people, do we find a distinct character, a nationality, corresponding with the leading traits of the nation itself. Each has its own peculiar ideas of what constitutes a "good time," and its own particular notion of "the fitness of things. How is it, now, with brother Jonathan T His great national festival is at hand, and it will be the fault of our readers' ears, we opine, if they do not discover, in the course of the next forty-eight hours, that the grand element in Jonathan's patriotic rejoicing is noise. His demonstrations are not addressed to the stomach or to the eye, but mainly to the ear. His great days are literally "stunners. M A Fourth of July morning is a lively image of pandemonium in full blast, or bedlam broke loose ; and the day usually continues and ends as it commenced. It is a day consecrated to a most unearthly din and clatter. The earth-shaking cannon and the brazen-mouthed church bell lead the chorus, and are joined by the whole tribe of lesser sounds, tin-pans, gongs and popguns, squibs, torpedoes and cow bells, drums, horns and conch-shells, shoutings, yellings, and Indian whoops. Every body seems to rejoice in the liberty to make as much noise as everybody pleases, and the general effect of the grand hubbub upon sensitive cars und shattered nerves is nothing less than pro-dig-i-ous. Even the "orations" which used to form a more prominent part of the proceedings than, happily, they do now, were of the "sound and fury" order, and might be as appropriately disposed of under the head of noise as under any other. In short, all the appointments and fixings of our only real national holiday are of the ear-piercing, tympanum-splitting, head-crazing, nerve- torturing kind. Some well-meaning people have thoughtlessly complained that we have too few na tional holidays ; hut in the name of mercy we ask, what would become of us were we obliged to go through this horrible racket more than once a year 1 For a year or two past, we have thought we perceived indications that the era of uproarous holidays is soon to give place to a more quiet but infinitely more silly and vavid species of demonstration. In some places, the "glorious Fourth" is degraded (we write it with becoming indignation) into a sort of Yankeeized Italian carnival a day over which the ludicrous, the odd, the fantastic, the clownish, the stupid and the asinine preside. "Stcbbings Light Infantries," and "Spunkville In-vinciblcs," and "Antique and Horrible Artilleries," desecrate the day hy their foolish parades, and consume in the form of weak laughter that patriotic feeling which was wont to make the welkin ring with deafening explosions and hearty shouts. This, to our mind, is no improvement on the old order of things. To confess the truth, we are half inclined to believe that we do like a jolly good noise, once in a while. At any rate, we have no charity for the fantastic geniuses who are trying to substitute their childish. MnpnnJ iron,;nt I buffoonery, for theold-fashioncd observances of our i national holiday. Nobody but a fool would act the harlequin in honor of his own birth-day, and we know no reason why that of the nation should be disgraced by these merry-andrews. These fantas tical displays maybe well enough, in their proper time (which should be us near the first of April as possible,) but as demonstrations of public joy over the most important event in our national history, they are contemptible enough. Undoubtedly an improvement can be made in our manner of celebrating public days, but it will not be by substituting the foolish for the noisy. Rather let us cultivate a love of the pure and beautiful. Let childhood, and woman, and flowers, and music, grace our festivals, and let the floral display and the social picnic take the place of the more boisterous demonstrations of former days. In a word, let us learn to be happy, to make others happy, and to manifest our happiness, in a quiet and rational manner. THE SUNDAY MAIL. We see it stated that tho Sunday mail between this city and New York will shortly be discontinued, the President of the New York and New Haven Railroad having positively declined to renew the contract for further service. Some of the newspapers of this city, which apparently recognize no higher good than a good bargain, have worked themselves into a very uncomfortable state, over this announcement ; but we are much mistaken if the withdrawal of this Sunday train is not regarded as a blessing by a large majority of the people on tho line of the route. That the Sunday mail sometimes proves convenient to our merchants, we have no doubt ; but that it is a necessity, no reasonable person will pretend, since the telegraph affords facilities for instantaneous communication between the cities at all hours. The plea on which the advocates of Sunday mails mainly rely, if good for anything, would justify the opening of shops, counting-rooms, insurance offices, banks, the Exchange, and other places of business, on the Sabbath. Doubtless many a good bargain might be driven on that day, and many a commercial advantage secured, which now pass unheeded, because our merchants and capitalists are not at their posts. If money-making is the grand aim of life, and our own convenience the only law to which that aim is to be subject, then let us abolish the Sabbath, as an unnecessary and troublesome blank between every six pages of our day-books. But if there is a sanctity to the day, let us be careful how we infringe upon it, merely to advance a selfish interest. If the great city of London can get along without Sunday mails, we do not believe that either New York or Boston can plead their necessity. Evinino Music Out-door evening concerts by military bands, sustained by private subscriptions, and nf course open to a!!, are just now all the rage in this vicinity. The device is a good one, to promote sobriety, virtue, a neighborly feeling, and a musical fasta.amBnglher!!). Wehtfcfe not jet begun to appreciate the value of music as a punfjing, civilizing and "happilving lnnu DEATH OP DR. SHARP. "Rev. Daniel Sharp, D. D., the Tenerable and universally respected pastor of the Charles St Baptist church in this city, whose illness has been mentioned in our columns, departed this life on the evening of June 23d, at Stroncly, a village about six miles from Baltimore. His remains were brought on to this city, and were buried on Tues day, from the church of which he was the beloved pastor. We find the following account of the funeral services in the Post : The services at the Charles Street church, on Tuesday afternoon, were of the most impressive character, and beautifully illustrative of the af fectionate regard in which the reverend aeceaseu was held bv his associates in the ministry of all denominations. The church was densely crowded from an early hour, and the feelings of the immense multitude seemed typified in the sombre drapery which darkened the walls. The sermon was by Dr. Wayland, of Providence, from Acts viii. 2 "And devout men carried Stephen to his burial, and made a great lamentation over him." It was an eloquent and impressive tribute to the departed. The opening prayer was by Dr. Gannett, and was a fervent and feeling offering over the manes of his deceased friend. The coffin in which the body was enclosed was of black walnut, ornamented with silver headed nails and sil ver handles, and lined with white satin. Rev. Messrs Lothrop, Waterbury, Bartol, Adams. Worcester, Miner, Mason, Gannett, Caldicott, Phillips, Cummings and Blagden officiated as pall bearers, representing the Baptist, Unitarian, Orthodox, Universalist, Methodist, Episcopalian and Swedenboreian denominations; this, it is under stood, was in accordance with the wish of the family. The body was carried to Mount Auburn tor interment. During the funeral services the bells of Bcveral of the churches, of different denominations, were tolled. The lot in which Dr. Sharp was buried was presented to him by his friend, the late Amos Lawrence. Dr. Sharp was 69 years of age on the 25th of last December. He was a native of Yorkshire England, and coming to this country at the age of 19, engaged in mercantile pursuits in New York which he subsequently relinquished for the minis try. He was settled over the Charles Street Baptist Society April 29, 1812, and was the oldest settled pastor in Boston, with the exception of Dr. Lowell. His catholic spirit, his humble, unostentatious piety, his sound wisdom, and his long and faithful services in the Christian ministry, had given him a strong hold on the affections of many without the pale of his own ecclesiastical order and his death has called forth an amount of sym pathy and respect seldom witnessed even at a pastor's grave. STATE TEMPERANCE CONVENTION. This Convention, held at Springfield last week, was very respectably attended, and its proceedings were harmonious and important. A new State Committee was appointed, which numbers some of our ablest and best men. The following are among the resolutions adopted : Resolved, That the difficulties in executing this law have been mainly such as we had reason to expect, the timidity of its friends, errors in the forms of indictment, incident to any new law want of interest on the part of municipal author ities a nrg ect to secure good legal counsel wnicn our opponents seldom fail to do the watchful vig or of men moved by selfishness and appetite and such dimculties as will always attend the execu tion of a law against which so extensive a pecunia ry interest is ot necessity arrayed. Resolved, That the preservation and judicious amendment of this law are of higher moment than any considerations of party ; that this is to be the issue at the next State election ; that it is forced upon us as such by by our opponents, and accent ed by ouselves ; that we exhort every voter to see that he is not misled in respect to this issue, and the bearina: of his vote ; and that we recommend to our friends to attend the primary meetings of their several parties, ascertain forthwith the position of every nominee, and secure, if possible, tho nomination of candidates who will be true to the best interests of the Commonwealth. Murder of a Noble Cuild of the Forest. The California papers mention a tree 300 feet high, and 98 feet in circumference at the ground, which is being literally flayed alive by a gang of vandals who are taking off the bark, for 50 feet in height, in sections, so that it can be put together again. It is about one foot in thickness, and will be sent to the world's fair, where it will be put up, and have the California specimens exhibited in it. The Courier justly remarks concerning this barbarous deed : "Can any one rend this story without indignation at such a stupid act of vandalism ? A tree which, from its description, must have been one of the nohlest works ot nature the wonder ot the vegetable world the pride and glory of the American- forest murdered we can find no other appropriate word that a basket-full of its chips may be sent to a show-shop ! Any man who could have a hand in so wanton an act of barbarism de- serves to have ins shin-bones made into button- mU'd8 and 8'd fr thre CCnt8 8 gr88' The Maine Liquor Law. The vote in Michigan, last week, on the Maine Law question, resulted in an overwhelming triumph of the temperance party. Nearly every city and town voted in fa vor of the law, and the majority throughout the State will be at least 20,000. In New Hampshire, the Legislature on Thurs day refused to take the Liquor bill from the table, hy a vote of 114 yens to 131 nays. This settles the question in that State, for the present session. In the Connecticut House of Representatives, last week, the proposed Muine Liquor Law was rejected by the casting vote of the speaker. In the afternoon a license bill was passed by a vote of 108 yeas to 98 nays. Deaths from Heat.- The hot weather of last week was very destructive to life in several of our large cities. In New York, no less than tvxnty- nine cases of sun-stroke, or sudden and dangerous illness from the effects of the heat, occurred on Tuesday and Wednesday, of which tacnly-four resulted fatally. Thevictimsweroprincipallylabor-ers. Such a fatality from cholera would have spread consternation throughout the city. There were some dozen or more deaths in Philadelphia from the effects of the heat, on Tuesday and Wednesday, and about the same number in Baltimore. Gleason's Pictorial. This universal favorite, and weekly illumined paper, for the present week, appears in an entire new dress, with new type, new designs, and fresh and original throughout. The Pictorial is full of beautiful and artistic illus trations, many of them referring to the Fourth of July, and other national subjects, and is printed on superb satin-surfaced paper. The present number is a credit to American art and literature, being rich in original and entertaining articles, as well as illustrations. The Pictorial with this number commences Volume Fifth. Terms, t300 per annum, or six cents per single number. Caricatures of Clerothen. The charge has been brought against Scott, Dickens, and some others of the least exceptionable writers of popu lar fiction, that the clerical characters who appear in their pages are always knaves, fools, or hypo crites. This charge, bo far db it relates to Mr. Dickens, has been recently reiterated by the Presbyterian Quarterly Review, which expresses the wish "that Mr. Dickens could be persuaded for once, if only for the sake of variety and truth to nature, to become acquainted with one decent minister of any denomination, and give us his por trait as an offset to the disgusting hypocrites he delights to paint. Is there no such thing as an honest man id England preaching the Gospel!" Strike Abandoned.

Memorials of the English Martyrs. By the Rev. E. B-Tayler, M. A. New York: Harper & Brothers. This is a reprint of an English work, in which the leading incidents in the lives of the most prominent Protestant martyrs of that country are briefly sketched, mingled with interesting descriptions of the localities rendered sacred by their blood. These descriptions refer more particularly to the present appearance of the localities, and their value is much increased by the numerous excellent en-gravings which accompany them. The book is full of interest, of the sad and touching sort, and will be highly valued by those who cherish the memories of the men of olden time, whose blood has proved the seed of the church. For sale by B. B. Mussey & Co. The Complete Works of Samvel Taylor Coleridge. Edited hy Piofeaaor Shedd. Vol. VI. New York: Harper & Urolhera. W7e have received, through B. B. Mussey & Co., the sixth volume of the Harpers' beautiful edition of Coleridge's works. This volume includes the treatise on "The Church and State," the "Lay Sermon," and the author's "Table Talk." The latter, edited by H. N. Coleridge, is particularly rich in fragments of thought on a great variety of subjects. Coleridge, it is well known, was a famous talker, and some idea of the charms of his conversation may be gathered from this collection of his remarks. There is a freshness,a suggestive-ness, and oftentimes a brilliancy, about these des ultory thoughts, that lead us to wish that more of this "table talk" had been preserved. The Ekolish Humoribts or the Eighteenth Century. A aeries of Lerturea. By W. M. Thackeray. New Yoik: Harper & Biothers. The course of lectures which Mr. Thackeray originally delivered in England, and subsequent ly repeated with so much success in this country, are here collected into a handsome 12 mo. volume. The lectures are seven in number, and the subject saie : Swift; Congreve and Addison; Steele ; Prior, Gay and Pope; Hogarth, Smollct and Fielding ; Sterne and Goldsmith ; and Char ity and Humor. Whatever may be thought of these productions, judged by the severe rules of literary criticism, no one, we presume, will ques tion that they embrace most lively and entertain ing sketches of the distinguished men of whom they treat. The eye cannot light upon a page without finding an attractive sentence, an incident. fact, or foot-note, which serves as a decoy and starting-place fbr the snatch-reader. The volume may be found at the bookstore of B. B. Mussey & Co.

Armengaud, the young er, and Amouroux, civil engineers, re-written, with new matter and plates, by Win. Johnson, civil engineer. To the mechanic, the engineer and the artist, it cannot fail to prove a most useful textbook, furnishing as it does gradually developed lessons in geometrical drawing, applied directly to the various branches of the industrial arts. The work is to be issued in excellent style, and each number will contain eight full-paged illustrations on steel. Price 374 cents per number. Blackwood's Magazine. The June number of this monthly has been re ceived by Crosby, Nichols & Co., Ill Washington Street, and is full of interesting matter. The first article is entitled "The Paradise in the Paci fic," and is a sprightly narrative of the Mutiny of the Bounty, and the settlement of Pitcairn Island. This is followed by part 6th of "Lady Lee's Wid-dowhood." The next two articles, "Finley's By zantine Empire" and "Six Months with the Ma lays," are valuable for their historical and descriptive information. The next article is on France, and gives Louis Napoleon the credit of possessing respectable abilities, though it is not very complimentary to his moral character. This is followed by an article on Syria; an essay on "Minor Morals," in which envy, jealousy, hypocricy, false pretences, and other social sins, are severely dealt with ; and the number concludes with a stern-shot at free trade. The number also contains two poetic articles, one of which is from the pen of our countryman, Bayard Taylor. Harper's Magazine. This popular monthly ably sustains its high rep utation. The July number is, we think, one of the best yet issued. It opens with an illustrated article on Monticello, the home of Jefferson, from 'the pen and pencil of Lossing, the well-known author of the "Field Book of the American Revolution." The second article is by T. Addison Richards, another artist-author, who wields the pencil and the pen with equal grace. It is devoted to a description of some of the beautiful views on Lake George, and has ten illustrations. This is followed by articles on the "Growth of Cities in the United States," "Monkeys," "Sketches on the Upper Mississippi," and a continuation of Abbott's "Napoleon Bonaparte," all of which are illustrated. Among the selected matter is an article entitled, "The Battles on the Lakes," from a forthcoming work by J. T. Ueadley. There is the usual amount of tales, poems, book notices, editorials, &c.

Th( discussion on the basiB of representation was resumed, and two new plans were offered, and referred. Friday June 24. The whole day was spent in discussing the basis of representation, and several new plans were brought forth. Saturday June 25. An order for making up the pay roll and adjourning till September, was rejected by a vote of 154 to 13. Mr. Wilson, of Natick, expressed the opinion that the Convention could get through its business on or before July 15th, making a session of 72 days. The debate on the basis of representation was then resumed. Monday $ June 27. The Convention concurred in the report inexpedient, &o. relative to requiring voters to be able to read and write. The report relative to incorporations under general laws was discussed at length, but not disposed of. The basis of representation question waB then taken np, and an additional plan presented. Tuetduti June 28. There was an animated debate on the report of a Committee that it is inexpedient to amend the Constitution in relation to "loaning the credit of the State," for the promotion of great objects of public improvement. Several amendments were rejected by a close vote, and the Committee rose without taking the question on the acceptance of the report.
