DY Mas. H. M. CONKLIN.
The day is done, and swift draws nigh
Thc twilight hour, sUreneO and sweet
The busy crowds go hurrying by
With steady thug of thronging feet.
In many a home glad watchere wait,
As they have waited (ft before,
To hear a band upon the gate,
And well-known footsteps at the door.
Some list for the fee! that still and cold,
No more the paths of life may tread,
Au miss the strong ari's loving told,
The tender words so often sail),
Alas for such I! the desolate,
Who half expectant as of yore,
Still chide tho foolish heas that wait
To hear he footsteps at the door I
Still pass tie thronging myrisds by,
For ieed the niourners watching lone I
The babes who fer their father try,
The wives whose light of lifo is gone ;
And some their sadder vigils keep
For living lost ones, owurning sore,
Anti listening tear, and waiting weep,
Ana dread their footsteps at the door!
Agricultural Science in France.
Our ingenious neighbors are at 1
present pushing their lov of research t
especi dly in the direation of agricul- I
ture, and doing all thoy can at once 1
to bring all the light that tcience can
supply to bear upon the art, and to
introduce a knowledge of it into gen
eral education ; no object can possi- 1
bly better deserve the attention of I
savants and professrs, and although
some Will-o'-the-Wisps may be crea
ted and mislead for a time, the great :
science of the earth and the supply of 1
foed, must in the end bonefit greatly
by such endeavours. One of the sub- 1
jects that has attracted special atten
tion of late, is the part that alkalies I
play in vegotation. We all know'
that without potash or soda, or both,
plants cannot arrive at per'ection, t
that is to say, cannot pass regularly C
through all the stages of their life, t
and produce the means of their I
multiplication. This principle set- "t
tied, it remains to disc'ver what
- proportions of the alkalies are neces
sary in each case. Chemical research
has not yet arrived at very definite
results on this subject ; the principle
point ascertained, is that with res.
pect to the greater number of plants
cultivated on a large secale potash is
far more necessary than soda.
M. M. Poligot, Payen, and Otter,
eminent chemists, are now busily I
occupied in carrying out this investi- t
gation, more completely, by careful C
analyses of the ashes furnished by
plants after burning. When such
residues are washed in water, and the i
solution evaporated, the following i
highly interesting and important fact 1
is discovered, namely, that potash andt
soda are found in different propor
tions, not only in the same kind of
plant cultivated in various soils, but
also in different plants cultivated In
the same soil. From evidence sueh
as this, furnished by many experi-'
ments, under various circumstances,
it is itmpossible to avoid the conclu-.
sion that plants have the power of 1
making, as it were, a choice amongst
* the assimilable substances which they
meet with in the soil. It cannot yet
be asserted with certainty of Wheat,
Sor any other great crop, that either of~
the alkalies is or is not indispensable
to its perfect development ; any such I
conclusion would, it is believed, bell
-erronious ; but it may be stated, wit h
every appearance of probability, that
the presence of potash in the soil isa
most important for Wheat,and for all
other cereals. This is a step towards
* the solution of a question, of great1

The entire command then move
towards the block houso, destroying
on its way, a few still-houses and cap

The oxpeditiou remained at tin

lighted up the summits of logbael
with burning still-houses. A numbe
of distillers were arrested, most of
whom were released by the Unite

The expedition was attended by n<

thirty still-houses were destroyed
only eight or ten stills were captured.
Most of the distillers had succeeded
in removing and concealing their stills

been of a most salutary nature. The

FRoM WAsrINGTo.-The clectiol
of General Ames, of the United Stato.
Army, to the Senate, from Mississip
pi, disconcerts and displeases the
President. It is eveni said that the
President specially requested General
Ames not to accept the Senatorship,
because he had the power of self.
nomination and self-election as the
military commander and politaiial
dictator in Missiissippi. Gen. Ames
had the entire management of the
State election, and was in fact expect.
ed, if not directed, to use his power
for the promotion of Republican suoe
cess in the election.
Genr.al Grant, as a candidate for
re-election as President, dees not wish
to create new issues against himself,
as he will do by permitting Generalf
of the army to use their military
power for their own civil advance,
menit. It would render him liable to
the charge of using the army for his
own election as President.
But Gen. Ames has resigned hii
commission, arid it has been aceep~ted.
If the Senate decide that lie was In.
eligible as Senator, while he helda
commission, lie can, probably, be
elected again, now that ho is out of

The white of an egg has proved of

burns. Seven or eight successful ap

The eggs are first boiled hard, and
the yolks are then removed, crushed,

carefully etirred until the whole sub

fire, when the oil separates and may
be poured off. Oe yolk will yield
