Gold and its Goings.
Thb estimated ameunt of gold in exist
ence at the coaamencement of the
Christian era was $427,000,000. At the
discovery of America, in 1493, this amount
had diminished to $57,000,000. In 1600
the amount had risen to $105,000,000; in
1700 to $351,000X100; in 1800 to $1,251,
000,000. The Russian mines, extending
oyer one-third of the surface of the globe,
on parallel 50 dejerees north latitude,
were discovered in 1819.
In 1843 the estimated amount or gold
in existence was $8,000,000,000.
Next followed the discoveries in Cali
fornia, February 9, 1848, and in Australia,
February 13, 1861, which added enor
mously to the gold production. In 1853 the
amount in existence was computed at
$3,000,000,000 ; and in 1880 it was $4,000,
000,000. From the commencement of the Christ
ian era to the discovery of America, it
was estimated that gold had been taken
from the surface and mined to the amount
of $3,800,000,000. From that date to the
close of 1842, $2,800.000,000 ; to 1860, Rus
sia adds $746,000,000, and California and
Australia '$2,000,000,000 more. The
amount of gold at present in existence is
estimated at $5,950,000,000. The quantity

Curiosities of Figures.
Much has been said of late about the'
remarkable repetition of certain numbers
in nature and-kistory ; and the following
may serve as an interesting supplement.
The figure 9, says a German writer, plays
an especially striking role in history, and
it is remarkable that a great number of
the birth -years of the celebrated men of
the eighteenth century end with the
figure 9. He Tfrings the following exam
ples in proof of his assertion, placing the
year of birth arter trie name :
Glenn was born in 1719 ; Leasing, 1729 ;
Schubert, 1739; Goethe, 1749; Schiller,
1759; Arndt, 1769; Oehlenschlager, 1779;
Ruckert, 178; Heine, 1799. These e
amples can be considerably increased, by
including non-Germans also. Jerusalem
and Johnson were born in 1709 ; Lichtwer,
1719; Lebrun and Goldsmith, 1729;
George Bchlosser, 1789; Lafontalno, 1759;
Chateaubriand, Robert Burns and Caro
line Pichler. 1769 ; Van der Velde, Streck
fuss and Fanny Turnow, 1779 ; Cooper
and Deinhardstein, 1789 ; Kopisch, Balaac
and Puschkin, 1799. Then looking among
the authors and men of science, we have :
Gmelin, 1709 ; Kastner, 1719 ; Moses
Mendelssohn and Rein hold Forster, 1729 ;
Ritter, 1739 ; Laplace and Jenner, 1749 ;
Osiander, 1769; Alexander von Humboldt
and Cuvier, 1769; Oken and Berzelius,
1779; Neander and Dagnerre 1789;
Bchlick and Ifland were born in 1769;
Romberg, 1789 ; Rossini, 1779 ; Overbeck,
Schadow, Horace Veinet and Pierre Jean
David, 1789 ; and Mendelssohn Bartholdy,
Some remarkable connection is also
supposed to exist between figures and the
four most important years of German his

Condensed History of Steam.
About 280 years B. C, Heir, of Alex
andria, formed a toy which exhibited
some of the powers of steam, and was
moved by its power.
A. D. 450, Athemins, an architect, ar
ranged several caldrons of water, each
covered with the wide bottom of a leather
tube, which rose to a narrow top, with
pipes extending to the rafters of the ad
joining building. A fire was kindled be
neath the caldrons, and the house was
shaken by the efforts of the steam ascend
ing the tubes. This is the first notice of
the power of steam recorded. -
In 1543, June 17, Blasco D. Garoy tried
a steamboat oi 809 tons with tolerable
success at Barcelona, Spain. It consisted
of a cauldron of boiling water, and a mov
able wheel on each side of the ship. It
was laid aside as impracticable. A pres
ent, however, was made to Garoy.
In 1650, the first railroad was construct
ed at Newc&Btle-on-Tyne.
The first idea Of a steam engine in
England was in the Marquis of Worces
ter's "History of Inventions," A . D., 1663.
In 1710, Newcomen made the first
steam engine in England.
In 1718, patents were granted to Savery
for the first application of the steam en
gine. In 1764, James Watt made the first
perfect steam engine in England.
In 1736, Jonathan Hulls set forth the
idea of steam navigation.
In 1778, Thomas Paine proposed this
application in America.
In 1781, Marquis Joufirey constructed
one in Saone.
In 1785, two Americans published a
work on it.
In 1789, William Tymington made a
voyage in ose on the Forth, on Clyde
In 1803, this experiment was repeated.
In 1783, Ramsey propelled a boat by

Bed and Bedding for the Sick.
If a bed is higher than a sofa, the pa
tient often prefers not to get out at all,
rather than undergo the fatigue of getting
out. If the bed were a low one, he might
often feel like taking a few minutes' exer
cise every day in another room, or even
in the open air. It is so very odd that
people never think of this, or of how many
more times a patient who is in bed for
twenty-four hours is obliged to get in and
out of bed than they are who only get
into bed and out of bed perhaps once dur
ing the twenty -four hours.
A patient's bed should always be in the
lightest spot in the room, and he should
be able to see out of a window.
It is scarcely necessary to say that the
old four-post bed, with curtains, is utterly
inadmissable, whether for the sick or for
the well. Hospital bedsteads are in many
respects very much better than private
There is reason to believe that not a
few of the cases apparently resembling
scrofula among children proceed from the
habit of sleeping with the head under the
bed-clothes, and so inhaling air already
breathed, which is further contaminated
by exhalations from the sfdn. Patients
are sometimes given to a similar habit,
and it often happens that the bed-clothes
are so disposed that the patient must nec
essarily breathe air more or less poisoned
by exhalations from his skin. A good
nurse will be careful to attend to this. It
is an important part, so to speak, of ven
tilation. It may be worth while to remark that
where there is any danger of bed-sores a
blanket should never be placed under the
patient It retains damp, and acta like a
Never use anything but light blankets
as bed covering for the sick. The heavy
cotton and impervious counterpane is bad,
for the very reason that it keeps in the
emanations from the sick person, while
the blanket allows them to pass through.
Weak patients are invariably distressed
by a great weight ot bed clothes, which
often prevents their getting any sound
One word about pillows. Every weak
patient, be his illness what it may, sutlers
more or lees from difficulty in breathing.
To take the weight of the body from off
the poor cheat, which at beet is hardly up
to its work, ought therefore to be tne ob
ject of the nurse in -arranging his pillows.
Now what doe's she do and what are the
consequences? She piles the pillows one
upon- the other like a wall of bricks, the
head is thrown -noon tire chest, arret nhe
shoulders are pushed forward, so as not
to allow the lungs room to expand. The
pillows, in fact, lean upon the patient, not
the patient upon the pillows. It is im
possible to give a rule lor this, because it
must vary with the figure of She patient. '

FARM AND HOUSEHOLD
USEFUL AND SUGGESTIVE.
Potato Pie. The ingredients arc:
One pound of white sugar, two and a
half pounds of potatoes, one pound of
butter, six eggs, one nutmeg grated, the
juice of one lemon, and a very little salt.
Bake in fine puff paste.
Prach Potpik. Put a plain pie crust
round the edge of a pan ; cut up some
peaches, and put a layer of them into your
pan, then a layer of sugar and nutmeg;
cover with crust, and bake slowly for two
or three hours.
Dried Applk Pes. To a quart of
dried apples or peaches, stewed and
mashed, take one teacupful of cream, two
eggs, well beaten, and seasoning of cinna
mon or lemon. Sweeten it to your liking.
Bake in a pie paste.
Trainihg Tomatoes. The Gardener'
Monthly says, after trying all kinds of trel
lisses recommended, tomatoes will do best
tied up singly to strong stakes. It thinks,
however, it would be more profitable on
account of the less work, to let them
grow as they will on the ground, although
they will not yield as much.
Experiments made to ascertain what
colors are most quickly and easily per
ceived by the eye, seem to show, accord
ing to tho Photographic News, that bright
yellow is the color most easily distin
guished, and it is, therefore, suggested for
nilway signals. It is remarkable that
yellow yields dark shades in photographs;
thus, a yellow-haired person is apt to have
black or dirk hair, and yellow dresses
never turn out light.
A correspondent of the Entomologist,
who keeps a large number of toada in his
garden for the purpose of destroying
insects, says that when first a toad
is brought into a garden and set at liberty,
he will usually strike for same other parts
the first night, but a few days' penning
up seem to attach him to the locality. Ho
may be settled for the season in almost
any particular locality by simply penning
him up in a temporary inclosure for a few
days, and then removing the inclosure
without disturbing him.
Thb sunflower is very useful. Its
leaves soon become large enough to be
used aa a covering for young cabbage and
tomato plants, its stem allords an excel
lent hop or bean-pole, and when dead in
the fall, if cut up and kept dry, it answers
well lor Kindling wood. The leaves can
be plucked off through tho summer with
out injury to the plant and dried for fod
der, or fed to milch cows or horses. Its
seeds make a fine oil, or chicken-feed. It
is said to be an absorbent for malaria, and
is often cultivated as a preventive of
fevers near dwellings that occupy low
A correspondent of the Massachusetts
Ploughman gives this remedy for white
hairs that appear on horses from the use
or wear of the saddle or harness t "Take
a piece of fresh butter or lard, large

ing ; rub the same with the hand until it
becomes quite hot, repeating the opera
tion at least three or four times, and the
white hairs will soon come out and hairs
of natural color take their place. I have
tried this on several horses, and never
knew it to fail. I think the best time to
do it is in the winter before the new coat
The Canada Parmer gives the fol
lowing suggestions in regard to weaning
lambs: "When separated from the ewes,
lambs should be placed in a field as dis
tant as possible from them, so as to be out
of reach of their bleating, and they will
soon become contented and thriving. The
pasture to which tbe lambs are put ought
to be somewhat better than that to which
they have been accustomed, yet not too
luxuriant, and if the ewes and lambs can
be turned into it together for a week, and
the ewes then taken away, the lambs will
not then fret to much as would be -tki
case were they removed to a field that is
strange to them."
To Cure Hog Cholera. Take two or
more large barrels and place convenient
to the kitchen. Into this deposit all the
pot-liquor, dishwater, and greasy water of
any kind, refuse pieces ot bacon, and a
few bucketsful of soapsuds. Let it stand
a few days, or until fermentation begins,
and then add to each barrel one bushel of
fine charcoal, and half a bushel of corn
meal, one htndful of salt, and a half
pound of copperas. Let it stan C a short
time, so that the charcoal may become
thoroughly saturated with the liquid, then
feed to the hogs in the usual manner ;
this has never failed as a preventive, and
in every instance wherein from neglect
the disease made its appearance, succeed
ed in curing it in a few days. Western
Harvesttns Timotht Seed. A con
tributor to an exchange has the follow
ing suggestion! on this subject : " Do hot

Wait until you have three swaths cut,
then cut the binders ; or rather the bands
that set it up. Put three sheaves or
bunches together on end, and tie tightly

upon themselves, tndcomplain of a lassi

But it Iroftcn the esse that the farmer's
team stacds idle most of the time Sur sev
eral weeks in tho latter part of the win
ter, 'and lecomes, ia a degree, weak fox
the want ct' exercise. If a team thns
treated is put to plowiag when the first
warm weather comes, there is ifreat dan
ger that it will be so overcome by the
rrwft and latigun as to tc permanenuy in
' jured. We iemember seeing oxen nearly
rumen n inu way. Ktuiy mo uiun mic-
f,.l - rLlira V,miM liavi rharirp. of til C
team when it is first put to the sprin
work in the field ; lull work, should no
be exrtected for the first few days. The
capacity of a team tor labor on the farm
during cropping season depends very
much on the treatment it receives during
the first week.
Another thing, horses and oxen at work
need water often. The plowman carries
his jug of water, or leaves his team to rest
while he goes to the house for a drink.
But the team works harder than the
driver, nd probably needs drink as often,
yet many teams are taken out early to the
prairie field where there is no water, ex
cept in the driver's jug, and worked five
or six hours before they can get a drop.
Is it any wonder that they are injured by
drinking too much when they are led to
the spring at noon ? Now, as an act of
kindness to the horses and oxen that
serve man so faithfully, and as a matter
of economy, we recommend that in all
cases where the water is not in, or very
near, the field in which the team is at work,
a tub or barrel be furnished and filled with
water as regularly as the plowman's Jug.
This, with a.bucket, may easily be set in
the wagon and taken to the field, and the
team should be permitted to drink once at
least every half day, and oftener if the
weather is warm. IX every one would
adopt this plan we should hear no more
of " water founder ;" the teams would be
more vigorous and hardy, and perform
more labor for their owners. Journal of
Manure for the Garden.
Tho American Agriculturist says that
"good, well-rotted stable manure, and
plenty of it, will grow almost anything
in the garden or field. The point where
most fail is in not using enough manure.
For a large share of garden crops the soil
cannot be too rich. This is especially the
case with all succulent vegetables, such as
cabbage, lettuce and the like.. Spent brew
ers' hops are found to be a useful substi
tute for stable manure, but few are able
to avail themselves of these. Guano is
very valuable, as are also hen manure and
fish-guano. These are best composted
with soil before using them. Night soil,
composted with dry earth, is odorless, and
is a fertilizer almost altogether neglected,
except in the expensive and uncertain
form of poudrette. Earth closets should
be introduced for the sake of the manure,
even, if they were not advisable upon
sanitary accounts. The use of dry earth
in the hen houses not only serves to keep
the atmosphere wholesome, but it allows
the manure to become composted at the
same time. Sods laid in a heap and al
lowed to decay; or thrown into a pig-pen
and there composted by the animals make
an excellent application, especially to old
gardens needing fresh soil Ashes and
piaster, separately or together, may be ap
plied to most crops with benefit. A well
made phosphate is a valuable manure, but
one should be careful to purchase only of
manufacturers of good reputation, fnnely
ground bones, applied directly or used in
compost, are excellent. Gardens which
have been long in cultivation often need

The unexampled success which for twenty ars

mongera In all parts of the coiintry, and the
counterfeiting business-having been measurably
played out in conseqnercc of tbe numerous suits
instituted against the offenders, a new system of
tactics has been adopt ed . In the South and West
especially, a legion of " Bitters," prepared from
worthless materials and bearing a variety of

extent for the Standard Tonic of the Age. In1
