down in cascades of living fire, and
it struck against some tiipi-n lovs

quite furious with Shdell Mackenzie
for saying that -in America a man

well, it appears to us that at least
there is no little truth in his general
proposition as to ihe course of justice
in Ihe Uunited States. There are
exceptions no doubt; but, in the main,
all experience shows that the chances
are in favor of rogues uwiih money
and influential friends" more strongly,
perhaps, than in any other civilized
country upon the lace of the earth.
Why it is so, we are not prepared to
say; but that such is the fact, cannot
be denied bv anv one who will g ve
the subject a moment's reflection, and
it is scarcely iust to attempt to cre
ate excitement upon this head, when
the person against whom it must be
directed has difficulties enough to
contend w iih upon the bare merits of
the rase without superadded embar
ras'nents. Our administration of
justice is some how or other radical
lvd ferte. Criminals are tried ns
if thee was snmeihing wrong in sub;
jeciing i hem to sr.ch an ordeal, and
as if fair play consisted in opening
for them every possible loophole f jr
escape. If to this general sympa
thetic philanthropy, be conjoined the
a pi ion of "money nnd influential
friends, to bnnj the necessary ma-
hinerv in p'av. it scarcely requires
a prophet to anticipate results. The

very stupid, bungling manner to bring;

A Kcni'tlii. Mrs. Child has pub"
lished a communication in the New
ark Advertiser, in which nfter describ
ing an offensive breath as a most un-
p'easant thing, she says that a care
ful removal of substances between
the teeth, rinsing the mouth alter
meals and a bit of charcoal held in
lhe mouth, will nlwavs cure a bad
breath. Charcoal fsed as a denti
fiice, (that is. rubbed on ia powder
with a brush) is apt lo injure the
enamel; but a !umpor it held in the
mooih two or three times a week and
slowly chewed, has a wonderful pow
er to preserve the teeth, and purify
the breath. The action is portly
chemica'. It counteracts tho acid a-"
i ising from a disordered stomach, or
food decaying about the gums, nnd it
is this nci I w hich destroys the teeth.

Jt h-a been my humble lot to spend
'he nost of my time in the spring
and fore part of the summer, in en-
grufiing and pruning fruit trees and
my experience gires lo prove that th
l est lime for pruning is when tho
leaves are full grown, and the tree is
in a vigorous an I growing state. For
t this season, when the sap hasben
spent in the foliage, and the pores i
ihe wood are fi led, so that when th j
limb is taken off, the sun and warm
weather will dry the end of the limb
m l close the pores of the wood r-g'-inst
ihe weather, nnd the sap rs'
keep the limb alive to the very er. J
and the healing will be perceived iiii
