It was a little church in the shadow of
Bald Mountain, ono of the immense range
dividing North Oarolina from Tennessee.
The bnilding was.a simple structural of
logs, with a puncheon floor, and a single
opening for a door, but without a window
or a chimney. On a tare spot in its
ce:;t, a huge light-wood fire was blazing
od sending nmoke into the people's eyes
till they wept' as if they were so many
watering pots. The congregation was
seated ronnd this fire on benches of rough
logs, and the preacher occupied a small
platform riied'a few steps from the floor,
find fnrni'hed with a singlo block of wood
uliich officiated as a chair. The women
hid br heads and feet, and tliair "only
garment (it-was Hie month of November)
iempd to bo a coarse cottonade gown,
falling straight from-the neck to just be
low the knees. The men hud long ratt
td hair anil hsggy beards, and wore
douched hat (they kept,-them on during
the service) and linsey .trowr-ers, and

nntanned lesther.skins, small heads, round
as a bnljet. and coarse, wiry h-air. which
looked like nhredi of oakum gathered in;
to mops and dyed with lump-black.
The presnher's text, which he credited
to tjie aoitfi..D.vid, was, "Try the sper
ret:" and he showed, to the satisfaction
of hia auditory, that while Scripture es
pecially enjd'ns the taking of a "little
win" which, he said was the ancient
name for whiskey, "for the stomach's
sake." it as expressly require that we
shall "try the sperrets." or, in, other
words, that we shall'drink none bat the
best we can get. He reckons "that such

How to Psevsnt Colds. Tb'ose who
have a consumptive tsint, should protect
themselves from colds. 'The most effect
ive means in securing this protection is
friction. While the surface has' a vigor
ous circulation, colds are impossible. The
cold oatn, witn tne use of rough towels,
flesh' brushes and hair gloves,' contributes
most effectually to the maintenance of
such a" circulation. Avoidance of bot
drinks is another preventive measure.
The usual draughts of coffee and tea pro
duce mnch susceptibility to colds. Con
sumptives jbo'uld,"f6r this reason, use
cold drinks. Bleeping and sitting in well
ventilated rooms, is -another most impor

Writer in the Mechanics' Magazine says:
" I have had three pairs of boots for the
last six years, .and I think I will not re
quire, any more for the next six years to
come, lbs reason is, tbst 1 treat, tbem
in'tha following manner': I put a pound
each' of tallow and resin in a pot on the
fire;-when melted and mixed, apply it
hot with a painter's brmb, until neither
the sole; nor the upper will soak-any tqprej
rF.it is .ds sired, that the boots should im
mediately lake s polish, dissolve an onnce
of'wax in a teaspobnfoi'of terpentine and
lampblack! A day or two after the' boots
have been treated with the resin and tal
low, rub over them this wax.aod turpen
tine,' bnt nnt( before the ,fire. Thus the
exterior will have a coat' of wax alone,
and' shine like a mirror. Tallow and
grease become rancid; and rot the stitch-,
ing or leather j ,bnt the resin gives, it an
antiseptic quality, which preserves the
whole. 'Boots or sboeVsbould be'so" large
as 'to admit of wearing cork soles. Cork
is so -bad a conductor of' beat, that with
it in the boots, the feet are always warm
on the coldest stone floor."

'faking the census of 1850 a tha baa-
is of tbe calculation, and there are at

Tbeir value exceeds, that'.bf all the manu

and also exceeds "all the 'capital employ
ed in commerce (previous to tb oat
break of this war) both inland and foreign.
Live stock is an immense national inter
est, bnt one that has been sadly over
looked by American statesmen and writ
er on pnblio economy. How to winter
cattle, horses, sheep, . bog and poultry
in the most economical way, all thing
considersd, is a subject on which an in
structive volume might be written.
In tbe first place, we should never
keep more stock on oar farms ..than we
have the means of keeping well. One.
animal properly carod for and liberally
tended, is worth more", than two poorly '

by stable and sheds ar; better nnderSi
stood now than formerly,, although the .
practice still lingers on some farms,
where tbe shivering and belhWingf ani
mals speak for themselves, -as to it ef
fects. Tbe old plan of stacking hay
about the farm, and feeding it to. animals
in winter, with only a rail fenta for shel-1
ter, is sometime seen at this day. If
the ghosts of animals which have died (or
want of shelter, could' hian't the fmafrin-
ations.of those careless farmers, it might
perhaps cause a change in their manage
ment. Stacking out hay and fodder 0
cause waste enough in a few years to
pay for building good barns, stables and
sheds for hay and animals.' c
Leibig asserts tbat oar clothing is mere- '
ly an equivalent for a certain amount of
food. In other words, if wo keep our
selves eomfortable and warm, we cannot
eat 'so mucb, because the amount 'of '
beat to be supplied by the food is dimin '
ished. i r '
These-observations areas applicable tot
domestic animals as to ourselves, and
they teach the farmer the necessity; of pro-
viding comfortable shelter for bis stock. '
It has been proved by 'repeated experi-'
ments that animals during the winter
season entirely exposed to the weather,,
do not thrive. as well, nor keep in as good
condition, as those comfortably housed. 1
although they consame from 25 to 30'
psr cent., the most food; thas sho wing the
owners of stock that if they have not suf
ficient mercy upon tbeir dumb beasts 'lo
provide tbem shelter in winter, their. in'-"
terests at least should promote them .to.
do so. 'An industrious and humane man,
will always find material fbr cover' for '
hia stock, even, if thef bo of the rtdesr '
and roughest kind.-

Yoa can no more fully make' amends for ,
the shock given to the vital functions,
than yod can give a horse a new seeing
eye in place of one that has been pnt out .
by violence. No after feeding of a bono
will give him a new eye; and no good
keeping will develop an aairaal frame
perfect in all its part after it has beem
stunted in growth. . r .
Most farmer attempt to keep too mach
stock, both i winter 'mid summer, for
tbeir food to be manufactured Into fleshy'
dairy products, or wool. A few'operef'
animals, well housed in winter, and well,
