take as much whiting as will adhere to it;
apply it to the painted surlacc, when a little
rubbing will immediately remove any dirt
or urease. After which, wash the part well
witli clean water, rubbing it dry with a soft
chamois. Paint thus cleaned looks as well
as when first laid on, without any injury to
the most delicate colors. It is far better
than using soap, and does not require more

: We eenerallv get them out of the yard in
the morning a little before six, and into the

propose, still further, to milk the cow as

There is a sort of relaxation of the cow's

ot course, completeness to tne now.
Our milk room is about twenty feet long
by eight wide, with windows opening to
ward the west, and our milk-rack, with its
five tiers, together with a few shelves, will
hold something near one hundred and fifty
nans. : At one end of the room is a table

per wire-cloth placed in the spout of a tm
pail exclusively used for this purpose. Our
pans are about four inches deep, of common
tin, with a wired edge; although a much
better and a more desirable article is a
heavy block-zinc, which we are substituting
for the old tin as fast as the new ones are
reonired. .
I The milk is set in these nans about two
inches deep. It never should be set deeper,
'and if you had the pans and the space, one
'inch is better than two. It does not make
'as much difference in the cool days of early
summer and autumn, when the milk will
keep fresh and sweet for some time, but
when the hot days come, and the milk: will
sour in a dozen hours, the thinner it is set
the better. i
Our milk is always skimmed as soon as it
begins to sour, or immediately after it has
come to a solid curd. Between these two
points, the trouble of taking off the cream
is very much greater than it is at either, lie
sides the particles of soft curds that incvi-
tubly mix with the cream dimimsn its value.

When the butter comes, the buttermilk is
drained out, and then the mass is thorough-

How abb wheh to tjse Manures. The
best method of using stable or barnyard
manure for corn or potatoes, is to haul it
trestt from the cellar m tne condition in
which it feists in the vaults, spread it npon
the ploughed field, and harrow it in with a
ueddes harrow. This is what is canea
"long manure," in a form which, according
to the opinion of many formers; is unsulted
to immediate use ; also, it is objected, that
in spreading fresh manure upon ploughed
fields and covering it only superficially with
. i i . n i i . i , . . ....
earui, mucn oi H is iosi, uy ewyvnuwn ; ur,
more correctly speaking, certain' volatile,
gaseous constituents rise on the breeze and
are watted away, in our view, potn pi tnese
notions are Incorrect. The excrement of
animals must undergo a kind of fermenta
tion, or putrefactive change, defore it is as
similated bv plants, and it is better that this
be carried forward in the field, as there it is
in contact with the soil, which is greedy to
absorb all the products of the chemical
change. Creative power has bestowed upon
dry earth prodigious absorbtive capabilities.
If a lump of fresh manure as large as
a ' peck measure is placed upon a
plowed field uncovered, and allowed to fer
ment or decay in the open air, the absorp
tive powers of - the earth are such, that it
will actually attract towards it ammoniacal
and other gases, and thus rob the atmos
phere of its natural volatile principles. A
film of earth no thicker than the rind of an
orange, placed over a lump of manure, will
effectually prevent loss of manurial pro
ducts, under all possible circumstances. It
will be agreed then, that a harrow is equal
ly as effective as a plough in protecting ma
nure in the open field. It is better to have
the manure near the surface, so tne rains
can reach it, and dissolve the soluble salts,
and by percolation cany them down to the
hungry roots ot plants, iiong manure is
not lost when deeeply turned nnder
by the plough, but the farmer does not
secure the whole value of his dressing
under this mode of treatment in any
case, and on some soils the loss is a most
serious one. In the process of soap-making,
it becomes necessary - to set up a leach.
Now, the farmer will not attempt to ex
haust the tub of ashes of its potash by
forcing water into the bottom and dipping
the liquid off from the top. The natural
percolating or exhausting process is down-
wards, in accordance with the laws of grav
ity. The soluble alkalies and - salts are
driven downwards, and in the case oi tne
leach we must have a vessel ready to re
ceive them at the bottom, and in the case of
the same substances leached from manure,
we must have the manures so placed that
plant roots will be at hand to absorb them
before they pass beyond their Teach.
Manure is never so valuable as when it is
fresh. It then holds in association not only
all the fixed soluble substances, natural to
the solid excrement, but much that is of
great value, found only in the liquid. It is
in a condition to quickly undergo chemical
change, and the gaseous ammoniated pro
ducts secured are double those resulting
from that which has been weathered in a
bean out of doors for several months..

Stables nt Summer. With most farmers'
considerable pains is taken to make stables
warm and comfortable for stock in winter,
and this should be: but there, is another
matter connected with stable management,
fully equal in importance, which is very sad
lv neglected, and that is free ventilation in
summer. Very many stables upon farms and
in villioges, arc built of brick, or claplioard
cd if made of wood without windows, and
through the sultry nights of summer, horses,
and often cows, are kept confined here,
breathing the air contaminated by the am
monia which arises from their own filth, and
the effect of this is loss of appetite, disease
of the luncrs and a decline of strength.
One-half the uiiury will not arise from
keeping a horse in a cold stable during win
ter, that will come from close confinement in
summer, for animals were given a robe to
shield them from the cold : but no shield is
given to avert the serious effects of inhaling
tor hours at a time a poisoneu aimoopiiure.
Some means should be devised to given
free circulation of air through the stable, if it
has to be done by leaving the barn doors
exposure to the' outside air ha3 always a
PTtrntianrMA open; and the stalls should be kept clean

ing the pans to nave a large-toppea Kettie
full ot boiling water, into wnicn eacn may
be dinned as soon as it is washed in the
soap-suds, and, without being wiped, may
be immediately carried out of doors.
The buttor needs to be completely rreca
from butter milk and water. The sooner
this is done, the better; but after it is done,'
any further handling, either with the hands'
or paddles, is an injury. ;
When the butter is made, it must be kept
in a clean and sweet place till sold. If it is
put in boxes on a cellar-bottom, that celler
should be innocent of the smell of rotten po:
tatoes or growing turnips. Motmng so
easily becomes impregnated with unseemly
odors as either cream or butter; and as in
the making, so in the keeping, absolute
cleanliness is rjf the utmost importance.
In all this, care and work arc inevitable,

nrnduct and the consciousness of excellence

1 As an evening or ball dress for a young
lady we know of nothing prettier than a
robe of white organdie, embroidered In col
ored wool in wreaths of flowers, running
longitudinally; , These organdies arc-to be
had in all patterns and ia every variety of
color; and they require no trimming beyond
perhaps a single flounce, scolloping at the
edges, and worked in wool in colors corres
ponding with the flowers. The. eorsage of
a dress of this kind should bo square, and
trimmed with narrow ruches of colore 1 taf
fety; ccinture of taffety to correspond.
Robes of white organdie, embroidered with
white cotton in the same style as those just
described are very pretty over colored
slips.- ' .

the broad ribbon, folded round ,tlie Waist
and the ends merely linked loosely together
at the back ot the waist. 1 . ' '
For the garden parties, and other elegunt
out-door amusements of frequent occurrence
at the present season, no dresses are more
general than those of white muslin over slips
ot colored silk.

dress made of pink and white striped taffety,
the stripes running longitudinally on the

rather wide apart. 1 liese Bounces are cut
out in deep points and edged with narrow
ribbon. In the first and third flounces the
stripes are made to run to the right, and in
the second and fourth ttoubces they run to
the left. The jupon worn nnder this short

The fashion of blue coats aad brass but

it is. A London paper sensibly asks, "why
should it be the mode to convert an assem

taste apparently has nolliing to do with the
matter, and a revival of the Webstcrian cos-

(Mr. Turner,) entered political life, heclaimed
tobe a.Whig and embarked his fortunes
with that party. . xneoiaer pouueuuw wu
middle-aired men of this State still remem

to the memories Of the past for the truth of
our assertions. ' .i-.:vi:t ,-.
In this and the light of . subsequent events,
wo can now estimate the true strength of his
attachment to the Union in 1860. r ormerly
he referred to this portion of his record with
pride. Wo believe that since he has affilia
ted with -tho ultra rebels and secessionists.
he has ceased , to plead for their votes and
pecuniary assistance on the ground "that he
was the last man kicked out of the Union,
and onlv left after the cats and dogs had se
ceded.". We make bold to say that he op
posed secession, chiefly because the main
body of its, supporters were democrats; and
thosp. who know him best, can' have but
little doubt left npon their minds, in view of
bis past and recent conduct,tnat naa uie wnig
party favored secession, he would have re
fnaincd in its ranks, (at the best, quiet only
im this subject,) and'ever opposing the
Democrats, while the' Union went to the
Spvil. Like Wendell Phillips, who had
father have had no Union than a Union with
slavery, the hatred of Mr. Turner towards
fiis nnnnnpnts. which has ever bordered on
would have led him on and
on . to the . noint ' of no Union, with
rinmopmpv. And wo have been
irmpnsililv led to this opinion, not only
because of his npostacy to the
cinse of the Union, but from the further fact
that unlike Badger, Pool, Pearson or 1 homp
mm. lm rmver showed one spark of magnan
imity towards the Democrats, who opposed
secession in I860 and afterwards, but went
on denouncing them from time to tune, as
if their presence in the Union organization
was an unendurable outrage upon his person-
al.iceUngs. And though Mr. Turner very
early, (after the cats and dogs) gave in his
adhesion to the rebellion, yet he proclaimca
Viimcplf in 1 the pnemv of Jcfforson Davis'
administration: but his "opposition was based
qn the ground that Mr. Davis was a Demo
crat and a "follower of that villain, Thomas
Jefferson.'' 'We quote Mr. Turner's language
from.' memory, though few who have heard
hiin.will deny its accuracy. : This then was
flip, mason of his opposition to Mr. Davis.
Tint whv did he support Gov. Vance, who
supported Mr. Davis' administration and the

In 1805, he filed a petition for pardon of

.Of course 1 personal attacks, especially if

these causes operate .in the assaults upon

If the exigences, of the Democracy re
uire that he be assailed, at least the criti
cism should have some reference to the prin
ciples or- policy of his administration. His
position on leading questions is well under
stood. For example, he is for the mainten
ance untarnished of the national credit He
Is for economy and retrenchment in every.
department He is for the faithful collec
tion of flic revenue, and the rigorous punish
ment of the knaves who evade it He is
for the earliest possible completion of recon
struction according to the terms of the law.
These are some of the matters respecting
which General Ghaxt's opinions and pur
Iposcs are not in doubt
! ..Now, why docs not the Democratic Press,
in its anxiety to write about the President,
discuss his views on these subjects ? If the
Democratic party prefers repudiation, as
i from its Ohio resolutions and nomination
seems more than probable or if it is against
economy and retrenchment or if it is fa
vorable to tho knaves who defraud the
Treasury or if it docs not intend to accept
reconstruction or to abide by its consequences
why do not its journals say so in plain
terms and assail the President accordingly !
These things have a general- interest tney

career of parties as well as the position of

Important Prediction. .
. M. Thiers, in one of his conferences with
bis constituents, at the late election, says the
New York Tribune, made the following in
portant prophecy. It is reported to us by
one of our regular Paris correspondents whb
was present and heard it : !
"Europe," he said, "is marching toward
the republic ; but you young men must not
deceive yourselves. By the faults of govern
ments which sometimes yield when- they
ought to be firm, and sometimes resist when
they ought only to curb and direct, this cen
tury will see only the period of transition, a
transition which will be bloody, terrible,
and which I thank God I am not to sue. The
blending of social and political,, of interior
and exterior problems, is such at this period
that nations are fatally forced to decide, all
questions by suppressing all. But violent sup
pression and solution are two things, and
shift them as you please, questions will still
exist as threateningly as ever. -It is only
when the New World, which is already tear
ing the flanks of tlie Old, shall have acquired
enongh of virility and of wisdom to vanquish
and to decide, that an economical Republic
will bring back order and peace to our soci
ety. The youngest of you will seethe pro
logue to the civilization of the future." , '
" This is very significant language in tlie
mouth of M. Thikus, who has no partiality
for Republicanism, and less if posaiblo for
the American Repubhc ' It would seem that
the old statcman begins to despair of Or
leanism, and of any dynastic consolidation
of power in France.

By the death of Marshal Niel, says the
Albany Journal, Napoleon loses one ol his
right hand defenders a man. upon whose
ability ; and . changeless devotion to' his
person and Government, he could rely with
out hesitation. Undoubtedly, since the de-'
mise of the hard-headed but brilliant Pelit-
gier, no soldier has approached, in the esti
mation ol the Emperor, this one, who lias
lust fallen under the lance of the great
Conqueror. It is said Napoleon was so
overcome by the announcement as to be un
fitted for taking active part in the grand
festivities at Chalons, commemorative ot the
hundredth anniveisary of his uncle.
Marshal Niel planned the French campaign
in the Crimea. He went into Italy and
marked out with mathematical precision the
movements which culminated at Solfenno,
He bad arranged the details of a campaign
that would have carried the French Bounda
ries to the Rhine, but for the Prussian vic
tory, at Sadowa. In calling him to the
War Department the Emperor relied J not
alone upon his influence in making the jptiU
posed.
