misery there is in the world of which most 'of
us littledreumefll We see enough indeed, to
nio ve our best sympathies tor sutieriiig tellow
nature: but did we see all the cases of sorrow
and anguish, which occur even in our midst
but which aro not sought out or carefully con
cealed from the world, most sensitive hearts
would bleed in a generous tide ot lamentation
for other's woes. David of old said, 'the cause
(of snfferfnEry which I knew'not, I ! tearched
outf and it is the duty of ua all, as professed
Christians, not to content , ourselves simply
with bcslowinir relief in those cases ot sorrow
that force themselves upon our notice, but also
to icarch out other cases and go in the spljit
of the good Samaritan to their aid 'and com

we beheld standincr at the corner of the Jail,
in the open street, exposed' to' the northern
blast, a pretty. little rirl, apparently about ten
or twelve yours of age, wauitig in screams of
almost unearthly , agony. , isJio was i thinly
clad; her loose hair hung over her naked
shoulders! and- she nppeared irt such misery
and trouble that; as you nitty believe, our sym-
patqios were, moved to hasten , our. pace to

needed not a reply trom her; tor soon the cause
of hor' agony was rcvealedH Ai that momrnt
her culprit father, wasdngtred forth in chains
from the dark cells of the Jail and forced into
a wagon which drove off npidly for the State -

to the child, in the hands ot the oiiicers, she re
rawed her, filial cries of t-pa!; pal' and tfs the
wagon drove off Jjcr Uttlefpci new, too, in the
direction of the wagon, screaming ;the endear

she and the wngon wore out of.our sight. Oh,
what strong eords -of affection bind parents
to children, and children to parents, guilty and

man, (he common dunghill fowl is capable of
yielding the greatest possible profit to the owner
In the month of Novembej, I put apart
eleven hens and cock, gave them a email cham
ber in a wood house, defended from storms,
and with an1 opening to the south. Tlu ir
food, water and lime were placed on siii-lt os
convenient for them, with warm netts ant!
chalk nest-eggs in plenty. Tboeo hens con
tinued to lay eggs through the winter. From
these eleven hens I reclved an average 'of six
eggs daily during the winter; and whenever
any of them was dispose! to set, viz; as soon
as sue oegan to ciuck, sne was separate!!'
from the'others y a grated partition, and her
apartment darkened; these cluckers were well
attended and well fed; they could see and rmr-
tially associate through their grates wiih the
other fowls, and aa soon as any one of these
prisoners began to sing, she-was liberated, and
would very soon lay eggs. It is a pleasant re
creation to feed and tend a bevy of laying
hens; ' they may be tamed aa ss to follow tha
children, and will lay in any box.
. Egg shells contain lime, and m winter, when
the earth ia bound with frost or covered with
snow, if lima is not provided for them, they
win not ioy,. or, they do, the eggs must of ne
cessity be without shells. Old rubbish lime,
from.old chimneys and old buildings, isproper,
and only nesds to be broken for them. They
will often attempt to swallow pieces of lima -plaster
as large as walnuts.
' 1 have olten heard it said that wheat is the
best grain for them, but I doubt it; they will 1
sing over Indian corn with much more aiiima-
tiou than over any other grain. :. The singing
hen will certainly lay eggs if she finds all tilings
agreeable to her; but the hen is much a prude,
as watchful as a weasel, and as fastidious as a
hypocrite; she must, she Will have-"eorecy
and mvsterv about her nest:-all eves but her
own must be averted; follow her. to watch ''
her, and she will forsake her nest, and stop
laying; she is best pleased with a bor'coversd
at top with a back side aperture fotdight, and
a side door by which she can escape unseen.
A farmer may keep an hundrpd fowls in his
barn, may suffer them to trample upon and
destroy his mows of wheat and other grains,
aud still havefewer eggs than the cottager who
keeps a single dozeu, who provides secret
nests, chalk eggs, pounded brick, plenty of In
dian corn, lime, water and gravel, for them;
and who takes care that bis hens are not dis
turbed about their nests. -Three chalk eggs
in a nest are hotter than a single nest egg, snd
large eggs please them ; I have often smiled
to see them fondle round ifhd lay iuto a nest of
geese eggs, ruiiets will commence laying
earlier in life where m-sts and eggs are plenty,
and .. where otner liens are cackling around
A dozen dunghill fowls, shut up awav from
other means of obtaining food, will require
something more than a quart of Indian corn a
day; 1 think fifteen bushels'a year a fair proper
tion for them. But more or less, let them al-
wavs have enonph ov them: and after thev
have become habituated to find enough at all
times a plenty in their uttle manger, they lake
but a lew Kernels at a time, except just belore
retiring to roost, when they will take nearly a
spoonful into their crops; but just so sure as
their provision comes tfr Ahem scanted or ir
regularly, so surely they will raven up a whole
crop full at a time, and will stop laying.
, A single dozen fowls properly attended, will
furnish a family w ith more (ban 2,000 eggs in
a year, and 100 full grown chickens for fall and
wintor stores. The expenses of feeding tho
dozen fowls will not amount to eighteen bush
els of Indian corf,, They may be kept hit-ittes '
as Well as in the country, and will do as well
shut Up the year round as to run at large; and
a grated room weU hghted,- ton feet by live,
partitioned from any stable ot other out house,
is sufficient for., the dosen fowls, with their
roosting place, nests and feeding troughs.
At the proper season, vtz: in tho spring of
the year, five or six hens will hatch at the same
time, and the fifty or sixty "chickens given to
one hen. Two hens will take care of 100
chickens well enough, until they begin to climb
their little stick roosts; they should then bo
separated from the hens entirely; they will
wander less, and do. better away from tha
fowls. I have often kept tbe chickens in my
garden; they keep the May bugs and other
insects away from the vines, fcc.
Incases ot confining fowl, in summer, it
should be remembered that a -.ground room
should be chosen; or it will do just as well to
set into their pen boxes of dried sand or kiln
