OLD WINTER [S COMING.
BY HUGH MOORE.
Old Winter is coming again-alack!
How icy and cold is lie!
He cares not a pin for a shivering back
He's a saucy old chap to white and black
He whistles his chills with a wonderful knack
For he comes from a cold countiree!
A witty old fellow this Winter is
A mighty odd fellow for glee!
He cracks his jokes on the pretty sweet Miss;
The wrinkled old maid unfit to kiss
And freezes the dew of their ligs-for his
Is the way with old odd fellows like this!
Old Winter's a fi-olicsome bolade, I wot;
He is wild in humor, and free!
He'll whistle along for the 'want ofhis tho't'
And ruffle the laee by pretty girls bought;
For a frolicsome fellow is ho!
Old Winter is blowing his guests along,
And merrily shaking the tree!
Front morning to night he will sing his song;
Now meaning and shorL-now howling and
His voice is loud, for his lungs are strong
A merry old fellow is he!
Old Winter's a wicked old chap, I ween;
As wicked as ever you see!
lie withers the flowers, so fresh and green
And bites the part nose of the Miss of sixteen,
As she trippingly walks in maidenly sheen!
A wicked old fellow is he!
Old Winter's a tough old fellow for blows,
As tough as ever you see!
He will trip tip your trotters and rend your
And stiffin our limbs, from our fingers to toes
He minds not the cries of his friendsor his foes
A tongh old fellow is he!
A .-unning old fellow is wimer, they say,
A cunning old fellow is he!
le prepsin the crevices (lay by day,
To see how we're passing our time away,
Aid mark all our doings, from grave to gay
l'mii fraid he is peeiing at mie!
TIE HEART'S MYSTERY.
0! who shli say he knows the folds
Which veil another's inmost heart,
The hopes, thoughts, wishes, which it holds,
In which he never hore a part!
That hidden world, eye cannot see
0! who shall pierce its mystery ?
Presutmptuous aim! that shrouded soul,
Uniarked by every human gaze.
Is open but to His cintrol
Wto traces every secret maze!
It is not thiie to bonid its faith
Or say what feelings sweel beneath.
There may lie hope. as pure, as bright
As ever sought eternity.
There may lie light-clear heavenly light
Where all seems cold and dark to thee;
And whete thy slirit mourns the dust,
There may be trus:-delightftil *rust.
Go bend to God, and leave to him
Thue mystery ofrthy brother's heart,
Nor vainly think his faith is dim,
Because ini thinie it huath no part;
He too is mortal, aiid like thee
WVould soar to immortality.
And, if in duity's hallowed sphere,
Like thee, he meekly, lhn ..by hends,
With hands um~tained and conscience clear,
With life's temptation lie contends,
0! leave him that unbroken rest,
The peace that shrines a virtuous breast.
Anid if his thoughts and h'opes should err,
Siill view binm with a ge.ntle eye,
Remembering doubt, and chanige, and fear,
Are woven in man's destinmy;
And when these clouds are passed away,
That truth shall dawn with eopenitig day!
The Past-where is it? It has fled.
The Future? It may never comte.
Our friends departed? With the dead.
Ourselves? Fast hastening to the tomb.
What are earth's joys ? The dews of morn.
Its honors? Ucean's wreathing foam,
Whre's peace I In trials meekly borne,
And joy? In heaven, the Christian's home.

ONlAKING GOOD BACON.
The beginuing of a year is generally the
ine for Putting up Pork ror Bacon; as
his isa standingdish in the West, I have
.oncluded to give you t he result of ihirty
year's experience upun this in poriant sub -
ect. The first thiug necessary to make
good Bacon. is to have fal hogs-slaughter
therm i"n the beginning of the week, so that
you can take care of* the otlhl befbro Satur
day night; otherwise, if a warm day or
two should intervene, part of it may be
lost. It is highly important that hogs,
slatghtered for bacon. should be well bled
-the more completely the vessels are
emptied of blood, the lessdisposition there
is in meat to taint or purify. As soon as
the hog is well cleaned and hung up, it
should he freely washed with warn water,
wiped .with a t--wel, and careflully scraped
with a sharp knif, especially the head,
earsand feet,if you wish to have good
sonse or hogs-head-cheese. These parts
are generally neglected, and thrown by
"for a mdre convenient season," and then
taken up by the cook or some idle chap a
bout the establishment, aid the hair singed
o1T, and the skin burned until it becomes
black and. bitter; therehy imparting its
color and taste lo the souse and hogs-head
cheese. After gatting the hog, the inside
should be carefully and freely washed
with cold water, with the nouth open, so
that the whole may pa-s through ihethroat
and remain in thai. eondition until complete
ly cool, which will genterully take place,
even in moderate weather, inone night.
If the weather should he so mild atat it
will not cool in one night, it had bietter he
cut up, and spread alpotn brick anad stone
Iavements, previously wet with cold wa
ter; ifthe meat is s:ill soft, dash cold wa
ter upon it, and it will soon he ready for the
sah, but in all cases it should be perfectly
cool if practicable. In one or two instan
ces, I have made as good bacon as I have
ever made, out of meat frozen so hard :bat
it had to becit up entirely with ans axe.
As to the mode of salting and the quantity
orsalt necessary to cure pork. so ias to
make good bacon, every man thinks thit
he kuons hetter than his neighbor. I have
experimented for the purpose of ascertain
ing the best mode of salting down pork,
as also the-properquantity orsatt and oth
er Ingremtiems, such as suiear, molasses,
red pepper and sallpetre, all of which have
their advocates, and have settled down
and pursued the follow ing practice for the
lost twenty years. [Measure a bushel of
salt-spread it upon a table-weigh a
tound of saltpere-pulverize it carefully
and mix it loroughly with the salt. This
mixture is sufficient for a thousand weighi

Vegetable Silk and Vegetable -ool
Iwo plants have lately attracted much at
Cltioti in the Island of Martinique, on at
zount of the iissueis which nay be Inbrica
led from the libres attached to their seeds
rhe first of these is Asclepias Minor, or
vegetable silk of the West Indies. We
have several plants of the genus Asclepius,
in the United States, properly called silk
weed, perhaps this very species, though
perhaps here at the north, it may not pro
duce fihres of the same length or fineness.
In Martinique it perflects its pods in four
months, and the plant itself lasts six years
from tt.e planing. It has been carded
and spun; the thread is beautiful, as glossy
and brilliant ns silk, and as strong as cot
ton. This remark is made of the plant in
its wild state; ht it hts been cultivated
and both the staple of the plant and the
qnautity of its productions are extremely
inproved ty cultivation. It will grow, no
doubt. in Louisiann
The other plant is the Bombax minor, a
shrub growitig to the height of seven or
eight feet. It produces a large pod which
coutains a kind of wool. which the manu
factures of Lyons, to wltose inspection it
has been submitted, htnvc declired to be at
fine as the wool of Thibet. It is easily
spun, and the thread is as strong as woolet
yarn. Fourteen months are necessary i
bring the pods to perfection. It iil
probably grow in Florida.-New Yor;
Kicico Cows.-It is not unfrcqtenly
the case,says the Editor of the Albau
utivator. that cows which are excellen
flor milk, acquire some habit that material
ly lessens their value, and of these injuriou!
habits, that of kicking, is perhaps the tmosi
common. Bowing itp one fore leg, tyint
both hind legs together, holding by tht
horns. and various other menns have beer
resorted to, in order to break up tle prac
tire, but frequently withoit avail. Mr
Kidder has communicated to the-Haunocl
Agrieultural Society, a nmode which ht
pronounces an effeciual cure, and which
he thus describes:
"Nuticinz the position of a cow whilt
kicking, which was to drop the head ant
curve up the back, I thought I would try C
new and simple method to cure her. Aftei
tying her in the stnnchel4 as usual, I mad,
tine eni of a rope fast round her horns, atm
put the other end over the girt, which wa!
about two fet higher than the top of thI
alanchbets, and(t tabout tho onmo rIist:me it
front: drew it pretty tight and fastened i
to a stud. Thisso elrectttally secured her
tiat she was milked with the most per
fect ease and safety; nnd after practicing
this method of tying a few titnes, shc gav<
tae io trouble. Several subsequent triah
have proved this method not only enperioi
to all others as an effectual remrdy, but i:
is so easy & simple that a female or a ho
can secure a cow n ithout diliculty."
Kentucky Corn Crup.-The Lexingto
Intelligencer ofthe 14th, states that the
orn erop ot Kentucky the present year,
is unusually large, an.d will perhaps sur
pass any thttt has ever beflore been p odit
ced in that Stte. It cives the followitt;
instancesofi-nmense yields in particula
"We understand from unlonlted at)
thority that three of the neighbors of Mr.
W. C. Youtig of Jessamine county, ne;t
sttred the quantity of corn grown ion an
acre of his farm, a few days itince; ami
found the yield to be- thirty nine barrels and
one half bushel! About the same quantity
was also found from tmcasuretnent to have
been produced tpon one acre of the farm
of Mlr. Joseph Bryan. of the sane county.
This surpasses any thintg of the kind tht
has ever cone utndr or observation, and
we doubt if it hats over beeni equalled int
