MY HOME ON THE HILL.
0! my4tomo, my home is beautiful,
Beneath the chesnut shade;
With the garden of sweet summer flowers
ntl "ister Uluved.
nP,, 'I ate 'o have a richer green,
A deeper gold hath th' e
And stars at eventide.
HIere is my mother's pleasant eye,
And my father's shielding care;
And the friend whose voice in household
Mingles with ours in prayer.
By the casement where in girlish years,
I conned lmy light task o'er,
With my student brother hend I now,
O'er a page of classic lore.
And here dwelt one with silver locks,
lnt he hans passed away!
How fondly was that form leloved,
These blinding tear drops say.
lie held ine oft in his aged arms,
' My head on his kindly breast;
I saw him die when he passed away,
As a child to its cradled rest.
O! my home, my home is beautiful,
With its skies and summer flowers;
And niany are its innocent joys,
And its silent thoughtful hours.
And the merry days of childhood leave,
Fond memories long and warm,
But the gentlest thoughts of my bosom rest
Onl the aged slumberer's form.

I imake little cider, my apples are worth
more Ii-d to iy ho--s than for eider ; but I
niake a practice of selecting my best sweet
apples, those that furnish the richest, liev
jest liquor, an aking a cieese l'romn them
using the cider thus obtained for iiaking
apple or quinepreserves, boiling tdown for
mtlhases, and keep two or three barrels for
drink, ultimate conversion into vinegar.
Wlten tew from the p'ess, and befote fer
imetationi commences, that which I intenad
for boiliung is brought to the house, aind
boiled in brass to the pioper consisteite ;
taking care not to buran it, as that gives
tho miolases a dhisagreeabllo flav'our atnd
taking ofl' the scum that rises duriatg the
process. The quantity to be btoikl or aibe
uat-erof barrels or"~,i i'oretit ro make
one of muole"n'e, will depend greatly on the
tintd of apples used, and the richntess of
the new lignor. Fouar. or fiur and n half,
are generally sufl'eient, bitt wheni care is
not tused at mnaking tho selection or' appw
five barrels may someetimes lie necessary;
but let it take imoire or less, enxough tmust be
used to mtake the molasses, when col, as
thick as the best West lIdia. WVhen boil
ed sufficienitjy, it should he tuirnedl into ves
sels to cool, and from them tranisferred to a
newv sweet barrel, put into a cold cellar,
'here it wvould keep without trouble, and
ready for use at all times.
Molasses tmade in this way will he pure,
antd posse~ss a viniOUS or rauthier branidied
flavor, wvhiceh makes it fat' superior to the
Weost India for mince, aploem'r tart pies,
though where the ap~les used( are very sour,
a small qanitity of' utnported molasses may
be advatageouisly utsedh. It is also excel
bent for making heer in the stummer, giving
it a briskness, andt flavotur which cenomo
molasses wvill not; in short, there are but
few uses to wvhieh molasies is applied, in
which it will not lie fountd eqjual or' superior'
to the oatheir. Its cheapntess sho~nuld also be
a dlecided recommttenidation) with the farmer.
The cider fronm which I mrannufacturo my
molasses, is wVorth at the press a dollnr a
bare, and is worth a dollar to reduce it
to molasses, thus mnaking the cost oIf a liar
ret of mnolasscs, allowing~ four and a hal'f
barrels of cider to be used. four dollars and
fifty cents. The price or common molas
ses will average iahout fifty cents a gallon,
or sixteen dollars a hrrel, making a sav
ing to the farner, in the use of' apple mU
lasses of about tell dollars a barrel.
