Professor Blot ox Coffee. Pro
fessor Blot, in a recent lecture at Bos
ton, treated of making coffee. He said :
" The best mixture of coffee would be
in these proportions : one pound of Ja
va, two onuces of Mocha, t wo ounces
of Rio and two of Martinique. Roast
ed coffee must be kept in a tin bo, and
ground freshly every day. It is ex
tremely difficult to find good coffee, and
it really seems as if merchants conspir
ed to make it as bad as possible. Mon
sieur Blot gave a few secrets of the
trade, such as watering the coffee while
roasting, that it may not loose weight,
as it diminishes about sixteen per cent,
during this operation. Useful hints in
regard to selecting and roasting were
given. Coffee must never boil ; by so
doing it does not gain in strength, but
loses the delicate aroma. The Professor
used four tablespoonfnll of Java and
one of Mocha to a quart of water. The
water was boiled and the coffee was
moistened with the boiling water ; at
the second boiling of the water it was
again poured upon the coffee ; it was
allowed to settle a few moments, and it
was done. The result was a liquid as
clear as spring water. Rye coffee must
seldom be employed. When coffee can
not be obtained, a very good substitute
can be found in wheat ; pound, and
roast and prepare like coffee.
A Siberian "Woman. A gentleman
who is engaged in the telegraphic ex
pedition in Siberia, relates the following
incident in a letter to a friend in Cin
" I met with a Ivorak woman, of
about twenty-two years of age, on the
great Tundra, (marked Kerau on the
map,) who drove a team of reindeers
with a loaded sledge fifty versts in one
day, and at night slept out in the snow,
with no covering except the clothes she
had worn through the day, and in a
temperature 43 degrees below zero, or
75 degrees below the freezing point !
Think of that, ye effeminate ladies of
America. That I saw her myself, al
though even to me it seems incredible
now. I thought it an extraordinary
thing to sleep in a reindeer-skin tent
out-doors in such weather, and I should
have frozen to death in two hours had I
attempted to sleep without it. She
traveled with us, driving her own rein
deer, and sleeping on the snow every
night. Now and Then. Professor Silliman
in his diary speaks of a visit he made to
Saratoga in 1797. It was rather in con
trast with the Saratoga of our times.
He says : " We mounted our horses one
day and rode seven or eight miles
through the pine forest, with its delight
ful fragrance, and arrived at a place
where they said there were some mine
ral springs. There was not even a vil
lage, but only two or three log houses
standing among the pine trees. The
people were civil, and provided hay for
our horses, and for ourselves bacon and
eggs. They piloted us into a morass
where natnre was unsubdued, and step
ping cautiously irom bog to bog, we
soou arrived at a spaing which they call
ed the Congress Spring, which tasted as
it does now."
Thomas Buchanan Read, the poet, is
in trouble. Mr. Handy concluded last
week not to have an art gallery in his
new opera house, as he had become tired
of the squabbles among the artists. Mr.
Read thereupon wrote some rose-?olored
letters, letting the art failure down in
georgeous tints, and to one of the letters
he signed Mr. Handy's name. The lat
ter, on finding the letter in print, pub
lished a card repudiating it, and declar
ing it a forgery. Read rejoins that it
contained the gist of a conversation he
had had with Mr. Handy, and that in
writing the letter and signing Mr. Han
dy's name, he had taken only a poeti
A machine for making butter is one
ofthenew inventions in England. It
consists of a movable metal cylinder
suspended from a small cast-iron frame.
The bottom of the cylinder is loose piece
of galvanised iron, and above it the cyl
inder is perforated by a number of small
holes. The is suspended in a bowl of
water, and the butter is placed in the
cylinder and pressed by a screw piston,
the result of which is that the butter is
forced through the holes into the water
in the shape of vermicelli. By this
means all the buttermilk is excluded,
and the butter is found to be much
closer and sweeter than when made by
In 1860 there were in St. Louis twelve
tobacco manufacturing establishments,
with a capital of $100,000, but in 18G5
these had grown to 62 establishments,
employing $2,500,000 capital nearly
three times the amount employed in that
branch of industry in the entire State
of Missouri in 1860. In 1865 the Gov
ernment tax on tobacco manufactured
in St. Louis was $1,171,631.
Another Romulus. A boy of twelve
years has recently been rescued from a she
wolf a den in a jungle near Delhi, India.
Like Romulus and Remus, he had been
suckled by her, and when caught, ran on all
fours very swiftly, and was fonder of raw
meat than any thing else. So says the Delhi

Blood, you are sick all

it rapidly cures a variety of complaints which are

During late years he public have been misled
bv large bottles, pretending to give a quart of
Extraet of Sarsaparilla for "one dollar. Most ot
these have been frauds upon the sick, for they not
only contain little, if any, Sarsaparilla, but often
no curative properties whatever. Hence, bitte
disappointment lias followed the use of the var
ous extracts of Sarsaparilla which flood the mar
ket, until the name itsclt Iras become synonymous
with imposition and cheat. Still we call this
compound "Sarsaparilla," and ii tend to supply
snch a remedy as shall rescue the name frem the
load of obloquy which rests upon it. We think
we have ground for believing it has virtues which
arc irresistible by the ordinary run ol the diseases

believe it is bv far the most effectual purifier ot
