Pbbparation of Cabkcte-Ptjbple.
The dye recently invented, aud known as
carmine-purple, is obtained by the solu
tion of uric acid in nitric acid, care being
taken to prevent boiling over and too
great an increase of temperature. The
mixture should remain Branding quietly
for some days, after which a thick, pasty
or doughy substance is obtained, which
is to be treated with warm water, filtered,
and the residnm again treated with warm
water. The filtered liquid possesses a
reddish or .yellowish color, decomposed
by the nitric acid. This liquid is now a
mixture ot alloxan, alloxantin, urea,
paraban acid, dialaramid, and other pro
ducts of uric aad. It is next to be
evaporated in large enameled iron ves
sel, but not heated to the boiling point,
which would destroy the murexide pro
duced. , After tbe liquid has been evapo
rated to a, eirupy consistency, and has
assumed a beautiful brownish-red or
violet color, it is to be allowed to cool.
The entire quantity of the liquid should
never be evaporated at one time, nor

Lbaxt Soils. Are any soils leaky, in
the sense in which the word is generally
understood f We do not believe it
The writer owns and works a farm that
ww said to be leaky, had no bottom,
wtuld not hold any manure, and all that
Not thus understanding the nature of an
arable soil, though it might happen to
be underlaid with gravel, we had no fear
of our leaky farm not responding to a
proper feeding with manure and growing
fat on it We have suffered no disap
pointment in oar case, and do not doubt
that others similarly situated will equally
escape disappointment A leaky farm
is one that has the advantage of being
naturally drained ; for it will not hold
water, but everything held in suspension
and almost everything held in solution
by that water wjll be given np to the
soil as it passes through it Pure sand
will filter and render clear the foulest
water, and agricultural clay will absorb
bad odors and decompose chemical solu
tions. Then a mixture of clay and sand
must absorb the soluble parts of manure,
and prevent the finely divided particles
from passing through it to the subsoil.
At least 8ucn is our belief, and our ex-
penence confirms it We have no fear
of leaky soiL We know many farmers
who prefer a soil that has the character
istics of those that are called leaky to a
heavy clay that is beyond suspicion in
this respect Ease of working, a quick
recovery from a state of wet warmth,
and generally earliness, are valuable
qualities of a farm, and all these pertain
to aoils that are called leaky.
Wrxx Parents Take Heed. On all

The Downfall of Babylon.
Of the variouB wonders of Babylon, the
product of the labors of its engineers or
architects we have no leisure to speak,
yet the chief pride of the impulsive pop
ulation was its impregnable walls. Nature
had left the city easy of access on every
side ; the ingenuity of man had covered
it with fortifications. The Babylonians
mocked at the futile efforts of their foes.
A deep moat surrounded the city. Walls
more than three hundred feet high cov
ered each of the sides. They were
seventy-five feet wide, formed of un
owned brick ; houses were built on the
spacious top : yet between them ran a
street so wide that a chariot of four
hor-es might drive or turn upon it at
wilL An inner wall of not inferior
strength provided a new defense. Mas
sive gates of t ronze secured every open
ing. The city was more impregnable to
ancient tactics than the finest work of
Vauban to his contempories than the
redoubts of Paris to modern cannon.
Twice only was Babylon taken ; once by
surprise, and once by treachery. Nor
was any ancient engineer ever able to
dry its enormous ditch, to sap its gigan
tic walls, taller than most European
spires, to crush in its solid gates, or
penetrate its exterior defenses. The
mighty fortress ruled for centuries over
the plains of .the Euphrates and the
Tigris; the fame of its strength filled
the world ; it was celebrated in tbe an
nnls of Greece and the chronicles of the
Middle Ages ; and in the fanciful days of
chiva1 and of barbarism every nightly
castle seems to have been modeled upon
tho plan of the- Assyrian stronghold, and
possessed on an insignificant scale its
ditch, its double walls, its Interior keep,
and its protecting towers.
Yet compared with the enormous
stoae-work of Egypt or the Cyclopean
foi tress of Myeena?, Babylon seems to
have been siugularly fragile It was a
mass of sun-dried bricks. Clay bound
together by chopped straw and asphal
tnm, was alinost the sole material employ
ed by its architects. Palaces and temples,
its lofty houses and its towering walls,
were all composed of crum'iline earth ;
and when at length decav settled upon
the mighty capital, am) its deserted
buildings were abandoned to the ravages
of time, it melted away liko a baseless
vision, and faded into a heap of dnst
Except a MU of broken bricks, no trace
remains of the tower of Belus. The
Euphrates has broken its neglected em
b .nk merits, and converted the site of
Babylon into a desolate marsh. Wild
leasts make their dens in the crevices of
the pile of ruins. Bats and owls cling to
the arid caverns. The fair plains of
Babylonia, once clad in boundless har
vests of Mesopotamian wheat, rich with
endless groves of palm, are sown alone
with brambles. The canals, the broad
highways, and the spacious inns are
gone. The gifted Semitic race, who
wrought the flowered muslins, and cut
the precious gems of Babylon, are min
gled with the dnst All is solitude. The
scornful Euphrates sweeps ct will over
the fields it was once condemned to fer
tilize, and mocks at the faded glories of
Cyrus or Samiramis, of Darius and Alex
ander, so low has Eabylon fallen 1
its renown was altogether material : no
poets, historians, musicians, artists,
sprang up amidst its crowded thrones.
A single Burns or a Babylonian Pindar
might have saved it from contempt ; and
but for the pen of a cultivated Greefr its
mighty towers and its gigantic walls
would nave risen and sun k undiKt n guish
ed upon the Assyrian plain ; but for the
cry of Hebrew prophecy the name of
Babylon would never have become the
symbol of civic corruption, or its fate

Anecdote of Ezekiel Webster.
In these latter days, when the office of
the Surrogate is the theatre of so much
unseemly wrangle over the wills of testa
tors that men who have property to leave
may sometimes despair of their' wishes
being consummated, an anecdote of Eze-
kiel Webster, brother of the " godlike,
may be aptly quoted :
When in full practice he was employed
to defend the will of Boeer Perkins, of
ilopKinton. ine physicians made affi
davit that the testator was Etruck with
death when he signed his will Mr.
iveosier Euoiecrea ms testimony to a
most thorough examination, showing,
by quoting medical authorities, that
doctors disagree as to the precise moment
when a dying man is struck with death ;
some athrming that it is at tbe com
mencement of the fatal disease, others at
its climax, and others still affirming that
we begin to die as soon as we are born.
'I should like to know," said Mr.
Sullivan, the opposing counsel, "what
doctor maintains that theory ?"
Dr. Watts." said Mr. Webster, with
great gravity :
' The momeot we begin to five,
We all begin to die."
The reply convulsed the Court and au
dience with laughter.
A Wonderful Balsam.
A manufacturer and vender of quack
medicines for rheumatism and the
growth of hair combined, recently wrote
to a friend for a recommendation of his
(the manufacturer's) "balsam." In a
few days he received the following, which
we call pretty strong :
Dear Sir: The land composing this
farm his hitherto been so poor that a
Chinaman could not get a living off it,
and so stony that we had to slice our
potatoes, and plant them edgeways ; but,
hearing of your balsam, I put some on
the corner of a ten-acre field surrounded
by a rail fence, and in the morning I
found the stones had entirely disappear
ed, and a neat wall encircled the field ;
the rails were split np into firewood,
and piled np symmetrically in my back
yard. I put half an ounce in the mid
dle of a huckleberry swamp ; two days
saw it clear ofl, planted with corn and
pumpkins, and a row of peach trees in
full blossom through the middle. As an
evidence of its tremendous strength, I
would say that it drew a striking likeness
of my eldest son out of a mill-pocd,
drew a blister all over his stomach, drew
a load of potatoes four miles to market
dn w grease out of a flint and eventu
ally drew a prize of ninety -seven dollars
out of a defunct lottery."

The First Newspaper in America.
In Buckingham's " Newspaper Speci
mens" we find that the first attempt to
set up a newspaper in North America, so
far as can bo ascertained from existing
records or from tradition, was made in
Boston in the year 1690. Only one copy
is known to be in existence, and this is
deposited in the state paper office in
Number one of this paper, and proba
bly the only number ever published, is
dated beptembar 2o, 16U. Immediately
on its publication the legislative author

that it was contrary to law, and con
tained "reflections of avery high nature."

without license first obtained from those
appointed by the government to grant
the same. Ibis paper was printed by
Bichard Pierce for Benjamin Harris.
-Mr. Pierce is said to have been the first
person who carried on the printing busi
ness in Uaston.
Benjamin Harris, who was the proprie
tor of this paper, had a printing house
in Boston, and in 1G92 and 1694 printed
the acts and 1 iws of Massachusetts, and
was ' printer to his Excellency the Gov
ernor, and Council. Harris s commis
sion to print the laws was in the follow
ing words :
"By his Excellency I order Benjamin
Harris to print the acts and laws made
by the great and general court or assem

people may be informed thereof.

Ugliness of Mormon Women.
A late writer says : Nothing impressed
us more in Salt Lake cit y than the home
liness of the women. It may be ungal-
iant to mention it : but, as every one
that goes there thinks it, here goes the
statement of the fact. Now, homeliness
of feature is not a disadvantage. There
is a handsome ugliness and a piotu
homeliness ; but with these Mormon
women it is a vicious, outrageous nn-
comeliness, indicative of moral disfigure
ment. The Tabernacle was alive with
them. They made us shudder. It is
assault and battery" to have them look
at you. What Brigham or any other
man would want of seventeen such crea
tures I cannot imagine. One of them, I
should think, would be a great horror.
Such dislocations of noses and misplace
ments of mouth , and rums of eyebrows,
are not gathered together in any other
place on this continent There must be
a good many witches among them. We
would not have been much surprised to
see them riding borne on a broomstick.
The only excuse that we can see for poly
gamy is that it would take at least fifty
such women to make one wife.
Conjjx'T Trust Himself. The Swiss

Do you mean to say that you are

at EstTvayer ? " " Yes, I am going
there." "But why can't you take it

simple follow; " You see 1 know myself,

Given this series by dry summers, science
points to the cause our denuded for ts.

are solemnly saying, " How heavy is the
hand of Heaven upon us." We have
prayed for rain one day of the week, and

In view of the nrgency of immediate
and copious aid from the people outside
of the State, the following appeal to the
United States has been issued by the
Michigan State Relief Committee :
To ihe People of Ihe United &nes .- We
need instant and plentiful aid. From
12,000 to 15,000 people, at least, in the
State of Michigan, have lo-it their homes,
food, clothing, crops, horses and cattle.
On the night of the Chicago fire 2,000
people on the east shore of Lake Michi
gan, and 5.000 to 6,000 on the west shore
of Lake Huron were reduced to almost
alolute destitution. Within two or
three weeks other small settlements have
been blotted out The number of indi
vidual farm-houses, barns and frontier
dwellings which have been destroyed by
the all-prevading fires cannot from want
of information, be accurately calculated.
The aggregate we know to be enormous.
The fires are 6till burning, and new ones
spring up. The area of rum and devasta
tion is daily increasing, and much suffer
ing exists. A Jong, hard and cold
Winter is npproaching, and large num
bers of these people are accessible only
by water, and navigation will soon be
closed. Sciircely a month, or six weeks
at most remains in which to feed, clothe
and shelter them for the Winter season,
which extends far into the Spring.
They must be helped now, or they will
perish. They will need, too, in early
Spring, seed and implements for harvests
next year. A greater portion of them
mrst commence life entirely anew and
without preparation at the beginning of
Winter. Their isolation from tbe centres
of commerce and the meaus of communi
ca?ion makes the problem of relief more
difficult and nrgent The people of
Michigan have nobly responded to ap
peals which this misery has made to their
sympathy and generosity, but they are
sorely crippled, indirectly in their busi
ness by the Chicago fire, and directly by
the assistance given to the sufferers from
that calamity liefore they were aware of
tbe demands which would be made npon
them at home. Many of them, too, have
lost their resources by fires which oc
curred in this State." Iu their name.
an-1 on behalf of the victims already
known and many whom we fear are yet
unknown, we ask prompt and efficient
aid from our benevolent fellow-citizens
everywhere. Money and supplies may
be sent direct to Michigan Kalinf com
mittee at JJjtroit or Grand Kapids.
Wyoming's Great Legislative Joke.
The accident, for such it was, by which
woman suffrage became the law of Wyom
ing happened in this way : The President
of the Council of the first Territorial
Legislature of Wyoming strolled into the
office of the Secretary of the Territory
one morning in November, 1S69, to talk
about local politics. Woman suffrage
came in for its share of attention. Said
the Secretary, who was a staunch advo
cate of woman's right:
"Mr. President do you know you have
the greatest opportunity of any man in
America to immortalize yourself?"
"How?" inquired the piesident
"By introducing a bill to the council
extending the right of suffrage to wo
man," replied the secretary.
"By Jove! I'll do it if you'll draw up
the bill," responded the president.
"Agreed," answered the secretary ;
and Mr. President smiled the quiot smile
of satisfaction incident to the birth of a
new idea, pulled away at his cigar,
straightened himself and walked to the
Council chamber to poncler on his future
greatness. The bill was drawn, intro
duced and passed the first reading of the
Conncil more for the novelty and no
toriety than because its membars were in
In the lower house, however, the bill
met opposition, and became the subject
of earnest dissension on the part of a
minority. The majority looked upon
tbe whole thing as a joke of the rollicking
secretary, and were disposed to let him
have his fun, while they would enjoy
the big supper promised them by the
secretary if they would pass the bill.
Thus the bill passed the House, not sup
posing the Council would confirm it on
it? final reading. The Council, however,
did pass the bill, whether from incliffer
;mce or to appear consistent with its
former action it is impossible to say, as
it is equally impotsibla to account for
most of the laws pa-.ed by this Legisla
ture ou any known hypothesis. But
whether joke or design on the part of the
secretary, the members of the House
were certainly victimizjd, for they never
got that big supper, and the bill did pass.
It only waited now for the Governor's
signature under the great seal of the
Territory to make this bill a law in the
land. In a few d lys the.bill was return
ed with his Excellency's familiar O. K..
and woman suffrage became loth a fact
and a law in Wyoming.
A Strange Case.
A sod incident occurred at Steulvn-vill-5
County Infirmary a few days a'o,
resulting in a horrible death, the bury
ing of a small lad named Murphy, aged
five years a reel-footed child, who was
des?rted by the mother to cloak ' er
shame. It appars that two other paunjr
children, name Philip Sheridan and Anily
Stewart, dag a large hole in the orchar d
adjoining the infirmary. After effecting
this part of tbe diabolical act tbe two
V ttle fiends, whose age-, were respectivo
ly five and ten years, repaired to tbe in
firmary grounds and canght tbe reel
footed' boy, and carried him to his living
grave. tshneKing, yet without power 01
being heard, tbe little victim was caught
by tbe young ex-curioners, and forced
into the hole. Holding him down thev
shovelved in the earth and stone upon
his writhing lodv, stifling his cnes as
best they could, until the poor deformed
body ceased to struggle, and the spirit
took its flight to Him who gave it. 1 he
two young murderers went back to the
house without informing any one of the
deed, and the buried boy's absence was
first noticed by Mr. Porter, the Supenn
tendent about one o'clock. Upon mak
ing inquiries, a lit'le black boy informed
him that Andy smart auu .run. onen
den had "buried 'Limpy'down in the
holler." On gomr to the spot Mr.
Porter found the in-wly made grave, and
below the surface the lifeless form of
little "Limpy. The little murderers
have been sent to the reformatory. This
is one of the saddest incidents we have
ever had to record.
Om Horsa as: Home. Savs Mrs.
Stowe : There are certain cnaracteristic
words which the human heart loves to

among them is the phrase, "Our House,"
It is not my house, nor your house, nor
their house, but Uur House. It is the
inseparable tre who own it, and it is the

impregnating it with the charm that
makes it the symbol of things most
blessed and eternal.

The Death of Nero.
One night Nero, dressed in women's
clothes, was in one of the palaces of
Bome, surrounded by his boon com
panions, male and female, indulging in
the most loathsome orgies, when a great
uproar was neard in the streets. A mes
senger was sent to ascertain the cause.
He returned with the appalling tidings
that Galba, at the hejtd of an avenging
army, was marching rapidly into Bome ;
tnat insurrection had broken out in
the streets, and that a countless mob,
breathing threatenings and slaughter,
were surging toward the palace.
The wretched tvrant as cowardly as
he was infamous, was struck with dis
may. He sprang from the table so sud
denly as to -overturn it - dashing the
most costly vases in fragments, he cried,
" I am ruined ! I am ruined !" and called
for a cup of poison. Suicide was the
common resnrt in those davs of the
cowardly in the hours of wretchedness.
Nero took the poisoned enp, but dare
not dnnk it He called for a dagger,
examined its polished point but had not
nerve to press that to his heart He
then rushed from the palace in his wo
man's grab, and with bis long hair flut
tering in the wind. 1 bus disguised, he
almost flew through the dark and narrow
streets, lctending to plunge into tbe
Tiber. When he reached the bank and
gazed upon its gloomy waves again his
Several of his companions had accom
pained him. One of them suggested
that he should flee to a country seat
about three miles from Bome, and there
conceal himself. Insane with terror,
bareheaded, in his shameful grab, he
covered his face with a handkerchief.
leaped npon a horse, and succeeded,
through a thousand perils, in gaining
his retreat. Just before he reached the
villa, some alarm so frightened him that
he leaped from his horse and plunged
into a thicket by the roadside. Through
briers and thorns, with torn clothes and
lacerated flesh, he reached the insecure
asylum he sought
In the meantime, the Roman senate
had hurriedly assembled. Emboldened
by the insurrection, and by the approach
of Galba, they passed a decree declaring
Nero to be the enemy of his country,
and doomed mm to death, more ma
jorum that is, according to ancient
custom. Some one of Nero's compan
ions brought him the tidings in bis hid
ing place. Pallid and trembling, he in
quired, "And what is death more ma
jorum ?" The appalling ' reply . was :
"It is to be stripped naked, to have the
head fastened in the pillorv, and be
scourged to death !"
The monster who had amused himself
in witnessing the torture of others re
coiled with horror from the dreadful
affliction. Seizing a dagger he again
endeavored to nerve himself to plunge
it into his heart A pick from the sharp
point was all he could summon resolu
tion to inflict He threw the dagger
aside and groaned - in terror. He then
strove to talk himself into courage.
"OaghtNero," said he, "to be afraid?
Shall the emperor be a coward? Ao!
Let me die courageously !"
Again he grasped the dagger, anxious
ly ' examined its keen edge, aud again
threw it aside with a groan of despair.
Just then the clatter of horsemen was
heard, and a party of dragoons was seen
approaching. Hisreireat was discovored.
and in a few moments Nero would be
helpless in the hands of ' his enemies.
Then there would be no possible escape
from the ignominious and agonizing
death. In the duliri'im of despair he
ordered a freeman to hold a sharp sword
so that he might throw himself violently
against it He thus succeeded in sever
ing the jugular vein, and his life blood
spurted forth. As he sank upon the
ground the soldiers came up. He look
ed at them with a malignant scowl, say
ing, " Tou are too late I" and died.
Thus perished this monster of de
pravity. It is said that this event took
place on the 19th of June, A. D. 63.
Many Christians at the time supposed
Nero to be-the An Christ The wretch
hud reign ad thirteen years, and died in
the thirty-second year of his age.
A New Theory. Some of the Eu
ropean astronomers are discussing a new
and interesting theory, namely, that
auroral appearance and the zodiacal
lights are in some way connected with
the phenomena of terestrial magnetism.
Dr. Balfour Stewart declares that in the
anti-trade winds he finds the moving
conductors required to produce the effect,
and suggests that as they pass rapidly
over the lines of the earth's magnetic
force they may be' regarded as the ve
hicles of an electric current possibly to
be lit np as atcnuated gasses are when
they conduct electricity. Iu this way,
he thinks, the phenomenon of the zo
diacal lizht might be produced. Then,
again, these moving currants will react
on the magnetism of the earth, which
may acconnt for the somewhat hudden
and violent changes that take place in
the earth's magnetism atthoEe seasons
when the great currents change most rnp
i ilv. as for example, the equinoxes. Dr.
S. also intimates that there may be' two
varieties of aurora, one corresponding to
stationary conductors under a very rapid
lv ehaiiffincr core, and the other -to
rapidly moving conductors under a con
