O'er the glud waters, O, fly, love with me.
To Cure Hams.?Cover the bottom of
the cask with coarse salt, lay on the hams :
with the smooth or skin side rlown, sprinkle j
over fine ssiIt, then another layer of hams, !
and so continue until the cask is full.?
This ought to be of the large kind. A
cask holding 64 gallons is small ennncrli.
and it would be better if it held 12U gallons, j
Make a brine in the following proportions 6
gallons water, 9 pounds coarse salt, 4 lbs
brown sugar, 3 ounces saltpeter, 1 ounce
sal-eratus. Scald and skim, and when cold
pour the brine into the cask until the hams
are completely covered. The hams should
remain in the pickle three months, and a
little longer time would do them no harm.
Cure for Botts. Give the horse 1
ounce of slaked lime three times a week,

If wanted a deep red, boil the wood

When the last coat is dry, burnish

hearts are gradually opened to licentiousness,
ferocity, and violence.
Here area hundred thousand opposed to
as of the oppsite party ; they draw near each
other in a vast plain which will soon be
covered with blood. What a prodigious
number of men compacted against each
other, spreading their moving phalanx, and
raged in combined order to put each other
to death I
Blind instruments silently awaiting the
signal ; fierce through duly, they are ready
to destroy their fellow-creatures without resentment
or anger. The majestic sun
rises, whose selling so many unhappy
wretches will never behold. The earth
is covereu wiui venture : mild Spring witti
her azure vale embraces the air ; nature
smiles as a tender mother; the glorious
sun diffuse his beneficient rays, which gild
and mature the gifts of the Creator: all is
calm ; all is harmony in the universe.
Wretched mortals alone, agitated with
gloomy phrensy, carry rage in their bosoms;
they meet to slaughter each other on the
verdant field. The armies approach : the
promised harvest is trodden under foot
death flies. What a horrible tumult! All
nature groans in an instant with the fury

of, and more terrible than the thunder,
with their roar they drown the plaintive
groans of the dying; they repel soft pity,
wishing to make a passage into the heart;
a cloud of smoke from gunpowder arises towards
the heavens, as if to hide a collection
of such horrors.
Alas! who would have expected such a
slaughter ? Tigers, bears, impelled with
voracious hunger, arc not inspired with
such atrocious cruelty. Behold these rivulets
of blood! Here twenty thousand men
aresacrified to the caprice of one; behold
them fall one upon another, nameless, unthought
of unregretted, into oblivon I
Thus perish these unhappy mortals. |
The skies resound with their lamentations;
trampled on by horses, by their country- j
men whom they vainly implore they expire j
a thousand different ways in horrible j
agonies. Others, yet more to be pitied,pre- ;
serving a remnant of life and consumed by
thirst, the most intolerable of torments, can*
not yet die; while others, forgetting death,
surrounded them,fall furiously on their mutilated
comrades, and, without compassion j
or pity to their wounds, unmercifully strip j
their mangled, trembling limbs.
Oh, Creator of the world! is this man ? !
this the august creature endowed with a i
feeling heart, and with that noble counte-!

Keats.?This poet, who died so young,
was a write; of the richest promise. Riper
years and a maturcr judgment would
have cflected much with a fancy so exhubcrant,
and a mind so thoroughly filled with
a love of the beautiful. Since the " Masque"
of Ben Johnson, and the " Faithful Shcperdess,"
of Beaumont and Fletcher, nothing
has appeared equal in " wondrous luxuriance"
to his " Endymion." Here at will
the poet revels amidst verdant lawns, silent
shades, embowering groves, far-stretching
forest and llowery s opes, over which satyrs
and fawns, and troops of Sylvan deities, are
seen tripling, till they disappear among
brown woods, or boyond shadowy mountains.
Ilis muse seems overladen,or rather
smoothered under a load of " rich-coming"
fancies. Rose foliage, musk-blooms and
arabesque drapery of overhanging and intertwining
boughs, through which the sunshine
showers its trcmulus drops of silvery
light, arc staple of her song. She feeds on
ambrosia, and quenches her thi?st at the
head of old and fabulous wells, which the
nymphs inhabit, and whose cool and transparent
waters they curl and dimple with

wreath ot fancy is poured out in such profusion
as to defy arrangement. The senses
of the reader are bewildered ; lie strives in
vain to thread his way out of the interminable
maze. His eflorts arc useless, and in a
kind of hopeless languishment he gives
himself up to the guidance of the poet, till
being led to
" Fountains grotesque, now trccSubcapanglcd eaves,
Echoing grottoes, full of tumbling waves,

break his slumbers, and call him again to

Science.?According to a communication
to the New York Tribune, consisting
of facts translated from a recent French scientific
journal, the present generation of
mortals is advancing towards the perfection
of wisdom with a degree of celerity truly
wonderful to contemplate. The German
professor who claims the invention of gun
cotton, has succeeded in the fiihrica'ion of
malleable glass, the material of which is
<k paste paper" rondered perfectly transpa
rent and water proof by a hidden process
and capable of being used with great ad- j
vantage for window panes, bottles, vases, !
&e. Another philosopher is constructing j
a machine for measuring and weighing the ;
properties of the atmosphere, indicating the j
course and strength of currents of air, mag- ;
netic variations, &c. A Parisian savan has j
managed to obtain electric sparks a foot i
long from a nowly contrived apparatus, sup- !
plied with plates of Bohemian glass,
in ine manufacture of which potash is used I
instead of salt soda. A scientific gentle- j
man ot Brussels has curcd numerous smo- ;
ky ale houses in that city, by placing there- !
111 a gass fixture which at once atlbr.ls a ]
brilliant light and perfect venlillotion. But
the greatest wonder of the age, is the director
< f the school of Technology at Zurich?
professor Dcschwaudcn. lie has made immense
discoveries in various branches of
science. But as yet, owing to the illiberal
policy of European governments in the matter
of granting and securing patents, the
world must endure the uneasiness of curiosity
as to the precise nature or merits of
these extraordinary secrets. It must continue
to repose with patience upon the assurances
ot those eulogists of a genius so !

"Not Dead: buT Sleeping."?A foreign
journal mentions a remarkable case of a female
supposed to be dead, and who came
near being buried alive, but was saved from
premature interment most miraculously.
The girl had sickened and died, (as her
friends thought,) she was laid out as usual,
and remained to all appearance as a corps
for three daye, when the time arrived which
was appointed for her burial. When the
i . ? .... i
uuucilUKt-rs came 10 screw aown the lid
of the offin, a slight perspiration was noticed
upon her skin, which being immediately
regarded, an examination was made, life
was soon found to be in the body, and she
was restored to health. The most interesting
part of the circumstance is the account
that the girl gave of her own experience during
her inaminate state. She said she aproared
to dream that she was dead, but
wi* sensible to everything that was passing
around her, and could distinctly hear her
friends bewail her death; she felt them
envelope her in the shroud and place her
in the coffin. The sensation gave her ex-1
ireme agot,^ anj she attempted to spealc.
but her soul Wsg enable to act on her body.
She describes t*r sensations as very contradictory,
as if sht were in and out of her
body at the same tiW?. She attempted in
vain to move b^r arms, to open her eyes, to
speak. TV agony wqg ul jts heaight when
