John A. Washington's Life at Mount
Vernon.
That eminent F. F'. V, and patriot, Mr. John

leaving his horns at Mount Ternon, besidos
that of pocket ing a quarter of a million dollars
for himself and heirs; If this picture, by a'
correspondent! the Now York.AVpresa, of tho
way he was bothered and bored by visitors be
correct, life there has, certainly bsen trying to
a gentleman of bis refined tastes and sensitive
disposition. . No wonder that his generosity
failed before such constant hordes :
A home hers has beon no sinecure either for
Mr. Washington or tho ladies of bis household;
There are hardly less than from fifty to a hun
dred visitors daily. Some ef them come hun
gry, thirsty and drunk, making their pilgrimage
a mere frolio and dissipation. They roam over
the plantation like beasts of prey, rather than
as decent, well-conducted people. Not long
ago some of these persons, wearing the sol
dier's uniform, even went so fares to endeavor
to steal the very dinner from the family on its
way from the kitchen, in a building adjoining
the dining-room, and it .became necessary to
put it under guard. Others go into the kitchen
like so many hungry dogs, and lay violent
bands upon everything they see and fanoy.
I am sorry to hear and believe all this even .as
an excuse for the unpleasant exclusion from
what otherwise might be a general weloome to
the publio at large. The Innocent, however,
have to suffer for the guilty, and a good many
go away cursing ths owner and oeoupant for
shutting his doors in ths faoes of all visitors,
beoauss some of them iwould pick bis pookets
by day, and steal the bed from under him at
night, if there was' free' ingress to all. But
who esn discriminate in snob crowds, and who
of us would be amiable, kind and onurteous
with such provocations to, be otherwise?
Branding Flour.
The editor of the New York iamincr has
been sojourning in Rochester, where bo visited
ooe of the largo flour mills, and was initiated
into the mysteries of branding .dour. Ho
says: --
Branding to us poor outsiders has been a
eouroe of a good deal of mystery. In our sim
plicity, we have supposed that a brand was a
true indication of the plsoe whore tho flour
was ground, and the wheat It was made from.
But this is an egregious error. "There are
tricks in all trades but ours." Only the very
best flour is labeled by the name of the mill
where it is ground. - Inferior Hour is branded
Corinthian Mill, New Mill, or some other mill
that is owned by the man of the moon. All
these practices' are known in the corn ex
change as well as at the mills, hut to as poor
oonsamers, who buy a barrel of flour onco a
quarter, it may not bo uninteresting to Iieob
ihnt all the best family flour is branded dou le
extra superfine, with the real name of the mill
and manufacturer. ' Gonessee flour is as ubi
quitous as Orange County milk, Goshen but
ter, or relics of the ship Constitution among
the curious. GenesSee flour is for the most
part made from Western or Canada wheat.
A Most Singular Occurrence.
We were told the other day of a most strange
event which ocourred a few days ago in the
north part of this county. ' It seems that a man,
whose name we did not hoar, recently returned
from California, where he bad been for several
years. His sojourn there had been quite profit
able. A week: or two ago no reached home,
with between $15,000 and$16,000 in gold eoin.
Feeling it to be unsafe to keep so much money
about the bouse, and doubting the honesty of
banks, the fortunate gold hunter concluded ' to
deposit it In the same bank from which it was
drawn. Looking around he finally discovered
an eligible place to hide it, and accordingly did
so. . Being very suspicious ho never informed
his friends of its biding place. His mother
insisted npon knowing, and at her repeated
solicitation, he at last promised to take the
money up and re-hide it taking her along that
she might know . the spot. .Unfortunately,
however, the man went out that day riding a
young and fractious horse, whioh becoming
frightened, threw Dim on, and broke nis neok.
Of course, no one can tell where the money is,
Great numbers of persons have been searching
for it, but up to the present time uosuooess
fully. Marwficld Herald.
Macrkady, tub Actor. Mr. Hillard writes
to tho Boston Courier, from JShcrburne, Eng
land', an account of his visit to Mr. Macready,
with whom ho staid throe days. Mr. Hillard
says of bin hosl: , " ,
His many friends in America will be glad
that he is in good health, and that tho ton years
which have slipped by, since I last saw him,
have touched him with very gentle bands.
The afflictions which have befallen him in
that interval he has not only felt like a man,
but haB borne like a man. Uur country has
not, within the four seas, a warmer and more
faithful friend than he. In the retirement
of bis present life, ha is conscious of no
craving for tho exoitements and triumphs of
that which he formerly led. Ho occupies
nimselt most usetuiiy in promoting the edu
cation of the community in which ne dwells,
a work in which tho laborers are few, and the
amount to be accomplished is great.
A Rxvakkahli Speino. The Gallatin (Ten
nessee) Examiner says : Colonel James Glover,
of the California Overland Mall Company, in
forms us of tho exlstosce of a remarkable
spring, on his route, two hundred and eighty
miles east of El Paso, on the road leading to
San Antonio. It is fully one hundred and
fifty feet in diameter, and has been sounded
to the depth of eight thousand feet without
finding bottom. Tho Surface Is as smooth as
that of a mountain lako. It breaks out, run
ning about three miles, when It disappears,
and again six miles distant reappears, forming
a stream fifteen to twenty feet deep in many
places. It is slightly impregnated with alkali,
and oontains five varieties of fish. It is oallod

Absurdities in Reoal Live When the
Queen of England, Louis Phillip, and tho
Duke of Wellington paid a visit to Eton, upon
the visitors' book being presented to them,
the King of tho French, somewhat nngallantly,
took up a pen and signed his name at the top
of the page. Etiquette wonld not permit the
Queen to sign, her name tinder any other; the
therefore turned over the all bat blank leaf,
and wrote her name at the top of tho next ono,
and then handed tho pen to ths Duke. - The
Queen, now, as formerly, may not speak to a
tradesman. We ourselves hare seen her stand
ing not a yard away from one, addressing all
her inquiries to an equerry, who repeated them
to the tradesman, and again repeated to her
Majesty all his answers. Kaike'i Diary. . . .,
Tng Cbqlksa is England. The London
Medical Times sounds out the unwelcome note
thatthe oholerahas again mads its appearance in

Graveiend, and to remove all suapiolous cases
to tho Dreadnought. Similar instructions have

Zurich.
Zurich, the plaoo appointed for holding tbs
Pea ci Conference at, is the chief town of the
oanten of tbe'aame name, and is pleasantly situ
ated at ths north-west extremity of the Lake of
Zurich. The oity is divided by ths river Lim
mat Into two nearly equal parts, or which that
on tbs right bank ia called the Groiso Stadt,
and the otber the Kleine Stadt It is ono of
the three cities Berne and Lucerne being the
other two in which the Federal Diet of Switer
land assembles by turns. Zurich has boen
called the Athens of German Switzerland; many
valuable books have proceeded from its presses,
and it can boast of having given birth to many
distinguished men of learning. It is a thriv
lnof. bujy town, one of the most commercial and
Industrious in all Switzerland, and it may be
ranked in this respect with Geneva, Basle, and
St. 8 all. Ths population amounts to about
Ifteen thousand. Zurich is historically re
markable as the place where tbe Reformation
commenced in Switzerland, under the guidance
and preaching of Ulrio Zwingle, in 1519, and
tbe first entire English version of the Bible, by
Miles Coverdale, wss printed here in 1A35.
Many English Protestants, banished by tbe
persecutions of tbe reign of Queen Mary, found
In this town a oordial reoeption during their
exile. One of the most pleasing features about
Zurich (says M array's "Handbook to Switzer
land") Is its promenades and points of view.
One of them Is an elevated mound, ones forming-tart
of tbs ramparts, and called Cats'
Bastion, now inoluded in the New Botanioal
Garden, whioh li prettily laid out in walks and
shrubberies, and opened to the publio without
restrlotlon, a privilege not abused. It com
mands a delightful view of the town and lake,
and of tbe distant Alps. Nothing ean be more
delightful than the view at sunset from this
point, extending over the smlllog and populous
shores of the beautiful lake, to the distant
peaks and glaciers of the Alps of Glarus, Uri,
and Sohwytr, tinged with the most delicate
pink by the sinking rays. The most prominent
and Interesting of the Alpine peaks seen from
this, beginning at the east, are the Sentls, in
Appsnzell, Glarnish Dodi, Klariden in Glarus,
Aohseaburg, Bossberg, and Uri Rothstook.
How to Give a Dinner.
The English publio are discussing with
much gusto the art of dining, and two vol
umes on subjects connected with the table
have lately appeared at London. From one
we quoto its directions for a dinner:
Let the number of your guests nevor ex
ceed twelve, so that tho conversation may
constantly remain general. Let thorn be so
collected that their occupations are different.
their tastes similar, and with such points of
ci) uroi, il ia not necessary to gotnrougn
tbe odious form of introduntion. Let your
dining-room be brilliantly lighted, your cloth
perfectly olean, and tho temperature from
sixty-two to sixty-eight degrees Farenhcit.
Let the men be clever without presumption,
the women amiable without couceit. Let
your dishes be limited in number, but each
excellent, and your wine first-rate. Let
the former vary irom tho most substantial to
the most light; and for the second from the
strongest to the most perfumed. Lot every
thing be served quietly, without hurry or
bustle; dinner being the last business of the
day. Let your cuosts look upon themselves
ns travolcrs who have arrived at the end of
thoir journey. Let tho coffee bo very hot.
lot your drawing-room bo spaeious enough
to allow a game to bo played, if desired, with
out interfering with those addicted to chat
ting. Let the guests be retaiuod by the
pleasant company, and cheered with tho
hope that, belbro tho evening is over thoro is
something good still in store for thorn. Let
the tea not bo too strong; tho hot toast well
buttered. Let no ono leavo before clovon,
uui tot evory one De in oea oy miunigut.
The Transfiguration of Memory.
In 3Irs. Stowe's new norol of "The Minister's
Wooing," ths following beautiful passage
oocurs:
As there was an hour when tho fishermen of
Gallilee saw their Master transfigured, his
raiment white and glistening, and his face like
the light, so are there hours when our whole
mortal life stands forth in celestial radiance.
From our daily lot falls off every wood of care,
from our heart-friends every speck and stain of
of earthly infirmity. Our horizon widens, and
blue, and amethyst, and gold touch every ob
ject. Absent friends and friends gone on tho
last journey stand onco more together, bright
with an immortal glow, and, like tbe disciples
who law their Master floating in ths olouds
above them, we say, "Lord It is good to be
here!" How fair tho wife, the husband, the
absent mother, tho grey-haired father, tho
manly son, the bright-eyed daughter) Seen
in ths actual present, all have some fault, some
flaw; but absent, we see them in their perma
nent and better selves. Of our distant home
we remember not a dark day, not one servile
osre, nothing but the eoho of its holy hymns
and the radianco of its bright days of our
father, not one hasty word, but only the full
ness of his manly vigor and nobis tendornoss
of our mother nothing of mortal weakness, but
a glorified form of love of our brother, not
one teasing, provoking word of brotherly free
dom, but the proud beauty of his noblest
hours of our sister, our child, only what is
fairest and sweetest."

in all respects the most economical sanitary
reform ever attcmped. Had one hundred
millions, instead of twenty, been devoted to
the purpose, there would have been no ex
travagance committed. Apart from tho con
siderations of health, we have tbe fact that at
present, England, and with her most of tho
world, is rapidly exhausting her soil and
giving nothing back in return. Every year
sees agriculture becoming more expensive
nnd food really dearer, owing to tho destruc
tion of tho world's truest wealth. Atpresent,
a few guano beds otter temporary relief; but
sooner or later we must fall back on tbe sup
plies afforded by cities, which are now wasted.
jJgy-Aocordlng to the Newark Mercury, there
Is a suspicious looking individual, a "furriner,"
going around that eity, carrying a string, to
the end of which is attached a diny, thieving
little monkey. Wherever this Individual spies
a bed-room or parlor window open, he stops
and listens, and if he Is satisfied that there is
no one prssent in the rooms, he sends Mr.
Monkey creeping slyly np the front of the
house into tho open window. Now the man
monkey on the sidewalk, having hold of the
other end of tho string, is strongly suspected of
having communicated his own thieving pro
pensities to the little monkey, and has "edu
cated" him to fasten on to little valuables, such
as bracelets, breast-pins, finger-rings or loose
ohange which his monkeyship may And lying

"The popularity of Spurgeon, the London
preacher, Is unabated. Recently he preached
two sermons at Norwich, in aid of the "Taber
nacle Fund." A vast concourse was present
on each occasion, but the pecuniary returns
wore slight The Rovorend gentleman ex
pressed his disappointment at the inadequate
result, and the Timet says, "This is not the
first time Mr. Spurgeon has complained that
those who go to hear him, do not respond
libernlly to nis forvid appeals."
Why Do Steam Bollers Explode?
At tho recent meeting of the Association for
the Advancement of Science, Mr. Hyatt, of
New York, prescntod what we believe to be tbe
truo cause. Ho presented tbe following table,
showing ths rapidity with which pressure is
doubled by only a slight inorease of heat At
212 degrees of beat, water begins to boil; at 868
degrees iron becomes of a red beat:
212 dcg. of hoat is pounds to square Inch.

It was stated by Mr. Hyatt that, from expe
riments ho had made, this great increase of
pressure could be obtained in six or seven min
utes with an engine at rest. This rapid doub
ling of pressure with bat a small increase of
neat, is dus to the conversion of what IS termed
latent heat in steam into sensible heat. If we
Immerse a thermometer In boiling water, it
stands at IV I; it we place it in steam imme
diately above the water, it indioatos the same
temporaturo. Tho question then arises, what
becomes of all the heat whioh is communicated
to the water, sinos it is neither indioated by
the water nor by the steam formed from It?
Tho answer is, it enters the water and converts)
it into steam without raising its temperature,
One thousand degrees of beat are absorbed In
the conversion of water into steam, and this is
oallod its latent heat And it is theWn
conversion of latent heat into sensible heat that
produces tho explosion. If an engine Is stopped,
even if there Is but a moderate fire, if tbe
esoape valve is closed, there is a rapid absorp
tion, or accumulation of latent heat.
The pressure rises with great rapidity, and
when the engineer thinks everything is safe,
tbe explosion eomos. That this Is the true
canse of nearly all the explosions that occur,
will be plain to evory one who will look at
the relations between latent tnd sensible heat
Professor Henry and Professor Silllman, jr.,
indorse the view. What, then, is tho security
against explosions? We know of no securi
ties but these a sufficiency of water in tbe
boilers, and tbe esoape valves open at light

Caving.
Tho following letter from s planter of West
Baton Rouge, to ths Advocate, describes a sin
gular and remarkable oaving of the banks of
tho Mississippi River in that Parish. Ths
writer says:
About three hundred yards below the point
known as Le Blanc's, the' carina began
about sun up, and when I arrived there, at
eight o clock, it bad gone in about half an aoro
in depth and was ommbling in rapidly. The
noise mado by tbe orumblinir of the earth was
so continuous that it resembled distant thunder.
When I returned at sundown it had taken
in the house of the widow Oodeau, at least an
arpent from the bank, she having but barely
time to escape, having saved only half her fur
niture It bad also taken is a large oak tree
behind the house, st least seventy-five feet in
bight, whioh had disappeared entirely, and the
caving extended book to an old gin, some dis
tance in the rear. Upon measuring with a
line the next morning, the depth at the mouth
was found to be eighty feet; over where the
house stood it was seventy-five feet, and fifty
feet as near tho bank where it bad cared as it
wss safe to approach. By the known lines of
the proprietors in front, it is about one hun
dred and eighty to two hundred feet wide, and
two hundred and fifty steps or sovon hundred
feet in depth.
When examining tie cave to ascertain its
probable causes, we found that two springs
were issuing from the point where It had caved,
one of them discharging quicksand, until, by
the abrasion of the current, tho body of it bad
been reached and discharged into the river,
thus produoing the crumbling of tbe bank.
Another conjecture was that it might be the
ancient bed of a stream which had, in former
years flowed out from the Mississippi at this
point.
The houso taken was one of the oldest In this
parish, and has been standing nearly half .a
oentury, and no caving has been known to havo
taken plaoo at this point of any importance
within tbe memory of tho oldost inhabitants.
Position.
"Men should not marry," it is commonly
said, "unless they can not only maintain for
themselves the social position to which they
have been accustomed, but extond the bene
fits of that position to their wires and chil
dren. A woman who marries is entitled to
bo kept in tho same rauk and position in
which she was reared."
We entiroly disavow these doctrines. , It
should be the aim of every married couple to
make their own fortunes. No son and daugh
ter, who become uuau and wife, aro entitled
to rely on their patrimony, but should wil
lingly conimenco life at & lower step in the
social ladder than that occupied by their pa
rents, so that they may have tbe merit and
happiness of rising, if possible, to the top.
Imagine the case of a couple who, by great
persovereu.ee have acquired possession o? im
mense wealth, and aro living 'in a style of
ease and splendor wnicn is no more than the
reward of industry. Will anybody say that
the children of such "old folks" should lire
in the same grandeur as their parents? .
Theidea is preposterous. They have no right
to such luxury, they have done nothing to de
serve it; and if their parents are honest in di
viding their property among them, they can
have romcsnsor supporting it. Yet marriages
are contracted on the principle that the mar
ried couple shall be able to keep up the rank
to which they have been accustomed under
the paternal roof. It is such notions as this
engendered by Malthusisn philosophers, and
fostered by lady pride that are filling our
country with "poor old maids," coquettish
young ladies, with nice cigar-smoking, good-for-nothing
men, and our colonies, alas, with
most miserable and barbarous old bachelors.

Hints on Poor Farming.
1st. Invest all your capital in land, and run
In debt for more.
, 2d. Hire money to stock jonr farm. ,
3d. Have no faith in your own business, and
be always ready to soil oat. -
4th. Bay mean cows, spavined horses, poor
oxen, and obeap tools.
5th. Feed bog hay and mouldy corn stover
exclusively, in order to keep the atooks tarns.
Fiery cattlo are terrible hard on old, riokety
wagons and nlow.
0th. Use the oil of walnut freely whenever
your oxen need strength, it is cheaper than
hay or meal, keeps the hair lively, ana pounds
out all tho grubl.
7th. Select such oalres for stock as the
butcher shuns; beauties of runts, thin in tbe
hams, and pot-bellied, but be sure and keen

8th. Be cautions in the manufacture of ma
nure. It makes ths field look blaok and mourn
ful about planting time, besidos It is a great
deal of work to haul it.
9th. Never waste time in setting out fruit
and shade trees. Froit and leaves rotting
around a place make it unhealthy.
The road to poor farming, though largely
traveled, is not wall understood, sod these
