FOR THE ADVERTISER.
TO MY CIGAR.
Yes, social friend, I love thee well,
In learn'd Doctor's spite;
I love thy fragrant, musty smell,
I love thy calm delight.
What if they tell with phizzes long,
Our years are sooner past;
I would reply, with reason strong,
They're sweeter while they last.
And oft, mild tube, to me thou art,
A monitor though still,
Thou speak'st a lesson to my heart,
Above the Preacher's skilL.
When in the lonely evening hour
Attended but by thee,
O'er history's varied page I pour,
Man's fate in thine I see.
Awhile like thee, the hero burns,
And smokes and fumes around,
And then like thee to ashes turns,
And mingles with the ground.
Thou'rt like the man of worth who gives
To goodness every day,
The fragrance of whose virtue lives
When he has passed away.
Oft when the snowy column grows
And tumbles to decay,
I trace how mighty realms thus rose,
Thus broke and fell away.
From beggar's frieze to monarch robe,
Our common doom is passed
Sweet lIature's works the mighty globe.
Must all burn out at last.
And what isiie that smokes thee now,
A little moving heap,
That soon like thee to fate must how,
Like thee in (lust must sleep.
And when I see thy smoke roll high,
Thy ashes downward go;
'This thus methinks my soul shall fly,
Thus leave ny body low.

THE SUM OF LIFE.
Searcher of gold, whose days and nights
All waste away in anxious eare,
Estranged from ill of life's delights.
Unlearu'd in all that is most fair,
Who sailest not with easy glide,
But delvest in the depths of tide,
' And strugglest in the foam,
0 come and view this land of &raves,
Death's northern sea of frozen waves,
And mark thee out thy home.
Lover of woman, whose sad heart
Wastes like a fountain in the sun,
Clings most where most its pain docs start,
Dies by the light it lives upon
Come to the land of graves-for here
Are beauty's smile and beauty's tear,
Gather'd in holy trust.
Here slumber forms as fair as thoso
Whoe cheek, now living, shn, s the rose.
Their glory turn'd to dust.
Lover of fame, whose foolish thought
Steals onward from the wave of Time,
Tell tme-what goodness hath it.hbrought,
Atoning for that restless crime1?
The spirit -mnansion desolate,
And open to the storms of fate ;
~The absent soul in fear;
Bring home thy thoughts, & come with me,
And see where all thy pride must he
Searcher of fume-look here !
And warrior-thou with snowy plume,
That guest to the bugle's call,
Come and look down-this lonely tomb
Shall hold thee and thy glories all
The haughty brow, the manly frame,
The daring deeds, the sounding fanme,
Are trophies bu~t for death;
And millions who have toil-d like the
Are stay'd, and he-e they sleep. Antd see..
Does glory lend them breath ?

AtISTOTLE IN LOVE.
[A writer on French Novels in the South
em Review quotes the following story from
Mill's History of the Crusades.]
"The delights of love have made Alex
ander pause in the career of abbition. Hi%
hosts.of Knights and Barons were diseon
tented at the change, and Aristotle, as the
tutor and guardian of his youthful course,
endeavored to arouse anew the spirit of the
hero. The prince attempted no lengthened
reply to this appeal to his chivalry. I
"Sighing, alone he cried, an inly mov'd, I
Alas! these men me-seems, have never lov'd"
Thegrave saws of the sage took root. how -
ever, in Alexander's heart. and he absented
himself from his mistress. She veiled her a
fate for some time in solitude, but at length f
assured that it was not the mere capricious- I
ness of passion which kept him from her, t
she forced herself into the presence of her I
lord. ier beauty smiled away all his r
dreams of glory from his mind, and in the s
fondness of his love, he accused Aristotle of I
breaking in upon his joy. But the domin- I
ion of his passion was only momentary, and I
recovering the martial tone of his soul, lie v
declared the sad necessity of their parting. 1i
She then requested a brief delay, promising i
to convince the King that his Tutor's coun- i
sel derived no additional recommendation v
from hi practice, for that he stood in need %
of as much instruction as Alexander him - l1
self. Accordingly, with the first appcr- I
arree of the next morning, the damsel re
paired to the lawn before the chamber
where Aristotle lay. On approaching the ,
casement, she broke the stillness of the air
by chaunting a love ditty, and the sweetness
of her wild notes charmed the philosopher
from his studious page. lie softly stole to
the window, and beheld a form far fairer t
than any image of truth which his fancy
had just previously been conceiving. Her
face was not shrouded by veil or wimple, 1
her lung flaxen tresses strayed negligently
down her neck,. and her dress, like drapery I
on an ancient statue, accurately expressed
the beauty of a well turned limb. She loi
tered about the place on pretence of gath
ering a branch of a myrtle-tree, and wind
ing it round her forehead. When her con
fidence in her beauty assured her that Aris
totle was mad for her love she stole under
neath the casement and in a voice checked I
by sighs, she sang that love detained her
there. Aristotle'drank the delicious sounds
and gazing again, her charms appearcd
more resplendent than before. Reason
faintly whispered that lie was not horn to
be loved, and that his hair was now white
with age, his forehead wrinkled with study.
but passion and vanity drove away these
faint remonstrances, and Aristotle was a1
sage no more. Thedamsel carelessly pass- I
ed his window: and in the delirium of his
love he caught the flonting folds of hier rohe.
She listened to his confession with a sur
prise of manner that fanned his flame, and
she answered him by complaining of the
late coldness of Alexander. The grey
beard, not caring for a return of love, so
that she accepted his suit, promised to bring
his pupil to her feet, if she would but confer
some sign of favor upon himself. She feign
ed an intention of compliance, but declared,
that before she yielded, she must be in
dulged a foolish whim which had long dis
tracted her fancy. Aristotle then renewed
his professions of devoted love, and she, in
sentences broken by exclamations of appa
rent slhame at her folly, vowed that she wvas
dying to mount and ride on the bask of a
wise man. lie was now so passionately in
love, that the fancies of his mistress appea
edl divinest wisdom to has miind, and he
immediately thre w humself along the~ ground
in a crawling attitude. She seated herself
on a gorgeous saddle which she placed upon
his bach, and throwlngsreina around his
neck, she urged him to proeed. in a few
moments they reached the terrace under
the royal apartments, and the King beheld
the singular spectacle. A peal of anoghter
from the windows awoke the philosopher
to a sense of his state, anid when be saw his
pupal, he owned that youth might well
yield to love, as it had power to break oven
the frost of age."

THE TWO JOHNSONS.
From the "Sketchs of Westem Adventuere,"
Early in the fall of 1793. two boys by
:he name of Johnson, the one twelve and
the other nine years of age. were playing
in the banks of Short creek, near thei mouth
:f the luskinguin, and occasionally skip
ing stones into the water. At a distance,
hey saw two men, dressed. like ordinary
ettlers, in hats and coats, who gradalily
ipproached them, and from time to time
hrew stones into the water, in imfitatiou of
he children. At length, when within one
landred yards of the boys, they suddenly
,hrow of their masks, and rushing rapidly
'pon them took them prisoners. They
woved to be Indians of the Deleware tribe.
Paking the children in their arms. they ran
rastily into the woods; and afler a rapid
narci of about six miles, they encamped
or the night. Having kindled a fire, and
nying their rifles and tomahawks against
t tree, they lay down to rest each with. a
woy in his arms. The children as may be
eadily supposed, % ere too much apitated to
leep. The eldest at length began to move
is limbs cautiously. and finding that the
ndian who held him remained ist asleep,
ie gradually disengaged himself from his
irms, lie walked to the fire, which had
urnt low, Ile remained several minutes
it suspense of what was to be done. Hav
rig stirred the fire, and ascertained the
xac? position of the enemy's arms, lie
vhispered softly to his brother to imitato
uis example, and if possible to extricate
imself from his keeper. The little boy did
s his brother directed. And both stood
rresolute around the fire. At length the
Idest, who was of a very resolute dispo
ition, proposed that they should III the
leeping Indians, and returned home. The
Idest pointed at one of the guns, and ns
urbd his brother that if he would pull the
rigger of int gun after he had placed if to
est, lie would answer for the other Indian
['he plan was agreed upoti. The rifle was
eveled, with the muzzle restina on a log.
vhich lay near: and having stationed his
ittle brot her at the breceh. with positive
rders not to tuch the trigger until ie ga-.e
lie word, lie then seized. the tomahawk.
mid advanced cautinusly to the sleeper.
such was the nitation of the younger bro
her however, that he towi-hed the trigger
on soon, and the report of his gun awake'i
lie other Indian before his brother was quite
ire pared, He struck the blow, however,
vith firmness, ahhough in the hurry of the
ret it was lone with the blunt part of the
iatehet, and only sinnned his antagonict.
uickly repeating the blow, however with
lie edge, he inflicted a deep wound utponi
h6 ludian's head, and after repented
trokes left him lifeless upon the spot.
The other, frightened at the explosion of
iis own gun. had alrealy taken to his scra
ers., and with much diflicnhy was overta
;en by his brother. Having regained the
and by which they had advanced, the -I
ler fixed his lint upon a bush to mark the
pot. and by daylight they regained their
somes, They found their mother in -ni
gony of grief for their loss, and ignoranrt
vhether they had been drowned or taken by
ie Indians. Their talk was heard with
istonishient, not uhimingled wiith ineredui
ity. and a few of the neighbours insisted up
in accompanying them to the spot where so
~xtraordinary a rencontre had occurrrcd.
I're place was soon found, andI the truth of
lie boys' atory placed beyoend a doubt. Thre
omnahawked Imdian lay in his blood where
ie fell, but thre one who had beern shot was
1ot to be fournd. A broad trail of blood, how
,ver, enabled themn to track hris footsteps,
iur Ihe was at length overtaken. Ihis uin
1er jaw had been enitirely shot away, arid
ris hands anrd breast were entirely covered
with clotted blood. Th'lough very munch
exhausted, hre still kept his puirsirers ai hay
anrd faced threnm from tirie to time, with at

standing their numbers, yet lie was,~ permit

RSSIAN MOD O (ING1 BUTTim
Observing in a ridlseientihic jor
nal, an artieo on . king but
ter in the wvinter, I lve retn futrihr
fewv particulars on ~hject. as practise<
in iRussia, since the year 1816, andt .wiel
may perhaps. he of somte service toi tihos
whro make tire experimnent either tm sumit
mer or winter. Being in that courntry i
tire ,ear 1817, I wans informed by ni Ru
sian -noblemnan, thai thre propirietor of ain es
tensive est at e (also a tnoblemani of highr rankh
hadn disco.veredl a now t4qdo of tspakinnby
)
ter, anti received letters potent from the
Emperor as a reward for the discovery, and
which lie statedi at that time in full anid gic
cessful operation, The proce(ss consisted
in boiling, or rather that species of. boiling
called simmering, the milk for the spnce of
fifteen iinutes in its sweet tate, oise-rvitin
at the Saie timle not to use a %n1114:ent nicat
to burn the milk ; it is then churned in the
usual manner. He also stated no dinienlty
ever occurred in proeuring buller i mmledi
ately, and ofa iunlity fur superior to that
mado from milk which had undergonc viu
ous fermentation: aid that in addition to
Its superior flavor, it would preserve its
qualities much longer thIn hat made in Ie
ordinary mode.; that the adlitionll adlvan
tages were, that the milk bein; lef t swcet, is
possessed of almost the same va'ne for or
dinary purposes. and by sonie consideredl
more healthy, as they suppose the boiling
or scalditng to destroy whatevcr aniialeniam
it may have colmined.
If the above process should upp experi
imelt, prove of sufficient importance, so as
to bring it into general use, particularly in
the winter, it would perhaps hr to the ad
vantago of those who many practice it, to
have their milk scalded in v-Ase,;ls CenlaI
ted to stand in the kettle or boiler hv which
imode the danger of burning the milk would
he avoiled, for it is ascertained lint milk
burns only on the edges of its sirface, or
where it comes-in contact with the side- of
the vcssels, which can never happeu iii dou
)!r- kettles, or where otie is placed vithin the
other.-London Mirror.
From the Xew York Farrmer.
A Writer, sigrning himself 'Old Utttchess,'
says butter shoould be cured without tle a1idl
water. "Te practice I ri-commncid." says
lie, "from long experiance, is as follows:
When the butter comeqs from the ch:urn.
put It in a clean wooden ho%% . aind with n
wooden butter-ladle priceed to work it, bv
breaking it down at the sides and(] turuin
off thie whey wich is separated in the pro
cess ; at the sjnne lime strew on the salt by
degrees. so that it becoies intimnatciv in
corporated. Continne working it thus until
the buttermilk is apparently all worked out.
Put it then by in a cold cellar till next morn
ing. by which lime the salt is dissolved,
when the ladle is to be again applied and
contiined as long as any buttermilk can be
separated. The butter is then fit for use or
laying down.
For preserving, stone-ware jars are pre
feralle, as they impart no taste to the bItt
ter, and exclude the air. Pack down tho
butter without any salt between the layers,
and cover with two inches of strong brine,
previously boiled,-skimimed and suffered
to become cold. If a scnm shoul after
ward appear on the brine, which vill some
tives happen in damp cellars, renew thie
pickle. The impurities which risr- to the
surface while boiling, or arc forud in the
resid num at the hottoi, are far greatc ;ian
any on,) would suppose who is not in tho
habit of boiling his brine for ments, butter,
