To Preserve Steel Goods from Rusting.
The simplest way of preventing the oxida
tion of polished iron and steel goods is to dust
them over with quick lime. When articles
are required to be preserved for many months
(such as polished steel grates), strips of paper
freely covered with powdered lime are to be
wrapped around the bars ; or they may be
placed in cases, and interstices filled up with
quick lime. Pianoforte wires and small
goods are preserved in the same way. The
rationale of the method is this steel will
not oxidize in dry air, and thus indirectly the
line preserves steel from rust. This is not a
new plan, but it is the method adopted by
the majority ot the Birmingham houses.

How to Keep the Sabbath.
nenry Ward Bcecher's Sermon, May 29.
Every house of any consideration has a best
room. It is usually furnished with the choicest
things a man can afford. Whatever there is that
stands apart from the common uses, the parlor re
ceives. It is the room of honor. Now, what the
parlor is to the bouue, bo is Sunday to the rest of
the week. Tbe week is a bouse, and Sunday is
the best room in it. It is a day to be looked up to
as the best day in the week. In these words of
Isaiah we eee that Sunday was to be honorable ;
it is memorable. It was a declaration that if men
will lay aside a day for worship, the Lord will
ble them. It is to be a day upon which a man
will say " it is a delight."' We are to bear this
in mind, that whatever you do on tlie Lord's day,
you may take this as its character it must be
pleasant ; made pleasant by a higher manhood,
by the enjoyment of Chribtian joys. It is to the
day of the week which is to act on our higher na
ture. It should therefore, carry this feeling of
joyiulnees in a man's nature. Tlie whole truth of
the rfforhet's words are, then, that you shall eo
enjoy the Sabbath, that your higher nature shall
tay it is a delight and honorable. As the cooper
would never think of working at his barrel while
entertaining company at his houe, so the Sabbath
m to be kept separate from the rest of the week.
Keep vour shavings and your dirt out of the Lord's
day. "it is not then to be a working day. I aui
not superstitious on this subject. I don't think
that if a man, walking in hij garden on the Sab
bath, should see a weed and pull it up, it would
be marked down against him on the Lord's book.
I regard it as a day in the week when a man can
say, I am not a clerk, am not an apprentice ; I
am not to crouch to any one to-day, 1 am a man.
A man stands on bis manhood that day. Where
fore, I 6ay that Sunday should not bo a working
day, because it must be unlike other days. Sunday
is the poor man's, it is your day, it is my day, it
is liberty day. It is not to be a visiting day. I
am not superstitious about this cither, 1 believe
that the queetion is not, can I, or can I not visit?
but rather, what sort of visiting would do me
good, make me better? I have known ministers
going to preach on the Sabbath, after the service
not to be asked even to go to dinner, from an
over-ecru pulousncss on the part of their parishion
ers, who were afraid of breaking the holy day. I
do not think it is wrong, either, to write letters
home on the Sabbath. Every child should be so
brought up that, when he thinks of home, he
shall think Sunday the best day, as the culminat
ing joy of the week. It is in the light of making
this a day of joy that we can discuss the question
of walking and amusement on the Sabbath. Now
1 am decidedly in favor of walking upon the Sab
bath. And if any go, all should go ; don't Jet the
children encounter temptation alone. But it
must be done soberly. So far as the working
classes are concerned, it may be an occasional
truth that it is wide to take them out of their
dirty, filthy homes, and give them an excursion
down tho bay or op the river. Singing birds and
beautiful flowers are very pleasant, but stop
give them first moral culture and the means of in
terpreting these beauties, so that they can see
God's handiwork in every flower. I set my lace
like flint against Sunday, a day of pleasure for the
rich man and a day of bondage for the poor man.
I wouldn't sign a petition against running the
cars on Sunday. If there is any sin in it, I think
that it is just as bad to ride in a carriage to
church as in a borse car. In arguing for a sacred
Sabbath, I am arguing for the poor man. It is
his day. It is his bulwark against oppression.
Many have euppoBcd that Christ set his lace
against the Sabbath. He, did not. He explicitly
declares that Sunday was made for man, not man
lor Sunday. Sunday is inado to serve man. It is
made to make man freer, nobler. 1 remark, sec
ondly, that a negative Sabbath is a poor way of
keeping it as well as can be. The prevalent idea
of the Sabbath is that you must not do something.
llave you brought up your children so that they
like the bsibbatb ? If you havn't so used the
Sabbath dav. then von have broken it. When
you come to church, don't look as if you were
going into a sepulcher. Don't pause solemnly,
and go up the aible with a disconsolate visage.
Ah ! if onr Lord was a crowned depot, this would
be right ; but he is not ; lie is a God of love, of
mercy, of forgiveness. Men ought to be striving
to make this day a more cheerful day, a plcasantcr
day, than all the rest of the week. Brothers,
friends, fellow citizens, there is nothing that I
care so much about as the sacrcdncsd of the Sab
bath. But 1 don't think you can make it so by
law ; it must be supported by public opinion.
Here is a day hallowed by 4.0U0 years of observ
ance. Let us keep it so that it may be a delight
to the Lord. Be assured that not long alter
Sunday has been abolished will it be kept except
by the sword and bayonet of the depot.
A Chapter on Hens.
Keeping poultry for both pleasure and profit is
destined to be an institution of the farm. For
the pleasure of it, the larger the variety the
greater the satisfaction, each breed having some
points of excellence, and altogether they mako
pretty pictures and interesting studies. For the
profit of it, if the gain is coming from eggs, one
or two kinds, at the most, should be selected ; if
from chickens (early or late,) some variety that
may not be as good for eggs, but better as
mothers; or if from breeding to sell, some rare
or fanciful or "game" will be desirable.
We propose a brief mention of the char
acteristics of each breed, in order that those un
familiar with poutlry and poultry books may b$
able to judge wiucn win best supply their wants
Beginning alphabetically, we will take
Brahads. There are- two varieties of this
breed, light and dark. The light are chiefly
white in tho color of their plumage. The dark
have (mainly) dark colored feathers, slightly and
eveniy iippca wun wuite.
They are among the best layers, usually com
mencing at six months old; sometimes laying
forty eggs before any manifestation of a desiro to
set, and in the year will produce a satisfactory
numoer oi tne largest sizca eirgs.
The dark variety is the largest cocks of this
kind weighing sometimes hi teen pounds ; thirteen
and fourteen being quito common weights. They
are hardyj quiet, grow fast, and, taking all in
all, are a first-class bird for cither eggs or the
Cochins. The three principal colors of the
Cochins are white, bull' and partridge color the
two iormer tne most popular, lhe white should
be all white, and the buff any shade of buff, but
of no other color. They are a large bird cocks
weighing ten or twelve pounds. The 6banks are
feathered down to the toes, and the legs are
generally short and widely set apart.
The Cochins are fair layers, but they are ex
ceptionable setters, always wanting to experiment
in that line after every dozen eggs, and are with
the greatest difficulty induced to delay a three
weeks' incubation.. They are a good breed for
family use, and will lay a fair amount of eggs
and will hatch a3 many chickens as any other
kind in tbe same time ; but tbe chickens need to
be eaten young to be the most unexceptionable
to tne taste. iney can De kept in a small space,
bear absolute confinement better than most other
breeds, and are better for winter layers than
Creve Cceurs. The plumage of this fine French
variety is mostly black, and they are distinguished
from all other breeds by a comb which takes the
form of two well developed horns, the whole sur
mounted by a black crest. They are quite large,
weighing from seven to ten pounds. The quality
of meat is said by French writers to be among
the best. They mature early ; they do well in
the closest confinement; lay a fair Quantity of
the largest sized eggs ; are averse to setting ; and
- .i ii- ... .
axe a uesiraoie variety woerewnn to etoCK a
Dorkincs. There are three varieties of this
breed gray, silver gray and white each having
about the same characteristics. They weigh from
eight and a half to fourteen pounds, and their
qualities as a table bird are unrivalled. They
are not good layers except when young. They
are most excellent mothers ; but tbe chicks are
very tender, and unless kept in a warm, dry pen,
but a small portion of those hatched ever arrive
Haxbcrghs. There are four varieties of this
beautiful and valuable bird, all of about equal
merit. They are" quite small, weighing from six
to seven pounds ; will almost always lay from
two hundred to . two hundred and fifty eggs a
year ; consume out little iooa. iney love a wiae
range ; will fly over a fence ten feet high. The
chicks are hardy; the hens do not care to set,
and as egg producers are probably the most ex
traordinary breed known.
IIocdans. This variety resembles tbe Dor
kings. Their plumage is usually white, with
large Hack ppangles, and tbe head is surmounted
with a large 6ized ponsn creti.
They . aro a moBt valudhle , breed. The hens
are proUCc. layers . of good , sized ; eggs. The
chickens feather with great rapidity, and are lit
for market at four months old. The grown fowl
is about the sire of the dorkings, weighing from
eight to twelve pounds ; and taking all the good
qualities together, they are one of the best breeds
that a fancier " or farmer can have.
Polands. There are (at least) five varieties of
Polands, all of which are about the same size,
and mainly distinguished by the difierenee of
color. This breed has its solid merits. They
maturo slow, are quite bardy if kept in dry places,
and, under favorablo circumstances, are most
prolific layers, never wanting to eit. They weigh
about 6ix and one-half to seven pounds, and on
the whole, are desirable to have in any farm yard.
Spanish. The white-faced black Spanish are
truly a most beautiful breed. They weigh from
six to eight pounds. They are most excellent
layers, beginning when six months old, and giving
five or six eggs a week for a whole year. The
eggs are not very fertile, as the chickens are not
as 6trong as many other varieties. Their eggs are
white, largo, and unrivalled in delicacy of flavor.
With a warm, dry place for them, they are a de
sirable breed for any farmer. Hearth and ilmne.
In the Lion's Den.
Thrrr of Ho
nuI Horrible Occurrence
abioMu's Circus Aleis Killed
nisd Four hUoc Kindly Lmceruted by iu v
From the Midilletown (Missouri Danncr.
Upon starting out from Cincinnati for the
season, the management of James llobinsun's
circus and animal show determined to produce
something novel in the way of a band chariot,
and conceived the idea of mounting the bund
UliU VUHUVI V V'V nw uur a-- vuum .
upon -the colossal den of performing Ni
lions, and which would form one of the p
and most imposing features of the show.
Although repeatedly warned by Prof. Sexton
that he deemed the cage insecure and dangerous
in the extreme, the managers still persisted in
compelling the band to ride upon it. Nothing,
however, occurred .until the fatal morning of
Tbe band took their places, and the procession
commenced to move amid the shouts of the mul
titude of rustics who had assembled to witness
the grand pageant, and hear the enlivening strains
of music. Not a thought of danger was enter
tained by any one, but the awful catastrophe
was about to occur.
As the driver endeavored to make a turn in the
streets the leaders became entangled, and tiircw
the entire team into confusion, and ho lost control
of them, and becoming frightened they broke
into a violent run. Upon the opposite side of
the street the fore-wheel of the cage came in
contact with a rock with such iorce as to cause
the braces and stanchions which supported the
roof to give way, thereby precipitating the entire
band into the awtul pit below
For an instant the vast crowd were paralyzed
with fear, but for a moment only, and then arose
such a shriek ol agony as was never heard before
Tho awful eroans. of terror and agony which
arose from the poor victims who were being torn
lacerated by the frightful monsters below, were
heartrending and sickening to a terrible degree
Every moment some one of the band would
extricate nimselt irom the dcorts and leap over
the sides of the cage to the ground with a wild
spring and lamt away upon striking the earth
so err eat was his terror. But human nature
could not stand and see men literally devoured
before their very eyes, for there were willing
hearts and strong arms read3 to render every
aBsistaace necessary to rescue the unfortunate
v ictims of this shocking calamity.
A hardware store which happened to 6tand
opposite was invaded by the request of the noble
hearted proprietor, and pitchforks, crowbars and
long bars of iron, and in fact every available
-weapon was brought into requisition. The side-
doors of the cage were quickly torn from their
fastenings, and then a horrible sight was presented
to view, juingjca among toe brilliant uniform
of the poor unfortunates lav lc"S and arms, torn
from their sockets and halt-devoured, while the
savage brutes glared ferociously with their sickly

and gave orders in regard to extricating the dead
and wounded he well knowing it would bo

Stationing men with forks and bars at every

The Australian Steam Route.
It is now pretty nearly certain that there will
be but two real competitors for the United States
and Colonial subsidies, namely: The North
Pacific Transportation Company and Wm. U.
Webb, of New York. The capacity of either of
these competitors to carry out such a contract is
undoubted. The North Pacific Transportation
Company are now represented by Mr. II. II. Hall
in the Colonies. That gentleman, we under
stand, baa full power to negotiate on behalf of
the Company. That being so, Mr. Hall, npon
his return, would be in a very much better posi
tion to carry out such an undertaking than he
ever was belore. Considerable credit is given
in San irancisco to Sir. Hall for the Yankee
smartness with which he succeeded with the
slender resources that were avadable to him in
the Colonies in starting a line an inferior one
though it is. From him can never be taken
away the credit of being the pioneer of the new
route ; although it must be admitted that others
were at an early period moving in tbe matter in
this country in a slower but probably a surer
way. Earnest Colonists, now residents in this
country, with that love for their old home, which
characterizes Australians, have been principally
instrumental in attracting attention here to tbe
rising importance of the Colonies, and to tbe
great value of the Pacific route. To their
"proper representations" not a little of the
credit of obtaining the favorable recognition of
It matters little whether Mr. Webb or the

has taken out ample guarantees as to the build
ing of the vessels.- Mr. Webb has two steamers
of magnificent proportions now in these waters
ready for the service, and we are authorized to
say that so Boon as the United States subsidv is
obtained, or favorable news received from Sir.
Collie, the Nebraska will bo despatched.
Captains and engineers inform us that this
vessel is well able to steam 300 miles per dav.
Her log shows that she has accomplished as much
as 320 miles per day, under steam alone. We
observe by the papers to hand, that Mr. Collie
asks for thirty-three days time from San Fran
cisco to Melbourne. - That would be an exceed
ingly safe arrangement for bis principal. Mr.
Webb is a cautious man, who is noted for
promising less than he knows be can carry out.
We much mistake our friends in the Colonics, or

maiimum of what first-class steamers are now-a-idays
eapable of performing. If twenty-six days
from San Francisco to Melbourne via the route
referred to in - another column be insisted upon,
it will certainly be accomplished in that time
without risk of y kind. We speak advisedly
when we say so. . If we were to take the time
regularly made on the boisterous Atlantic as our
guide, for that to be made on the mild I acific,
the voyage would be made in even less time than
Tho question of time will probably not be
raised by the United States Government, as it is
not of so much importance to this country ; but
by Australasians to whom it is all important,
this subject must not bo overlooked. If their
subsidy id sufficiently large to pay for good time,
it ought to be insisted upon. Alia, July 10th.

A peanut-picker was among the new labor-saving

Hitherto the nuts have been picked off the vines by
hand ; four bushels a day was the fair average by
band. A farmer who raided one thousand bushels
required ten hands for nearly two months to save
his crop, at a cost of fifteen cents a bushel. The
crop raised on the south ide of James river, be
tween Petersburg and Norfolk, is estimated at one
million busbels a year. To save this crop would
require the labor of Rix thousand hands for two
months, at a cost of $200,000. The new machine
saves much time and labor.-

bow completely through the other side, and lifted
the wooden steamer up on her bow like a broken

filled with water, and sunk immediately. Four
