At I am ever desirous of giving as well as fe-
cciving information on anything pertaining to
my occupation, that of farming, permit me to of
fer to those whom it may concern, a few remarks
on tha above tnpio. All will agree with me that
the old practice of oYti i the entire swarm
by fumigation it barbnrout una extremely un
profitable. Then, if there be another method
of removing beea from hive to hive, by which
the honey la obtained, with the tame cost, ar.d
by which the lives of the beet are spared, I say,
emphatically, it should be adopted.
a he method 1 now recommend is that or fu
migation, (not brimstone, J by which the senses
of the beet are so dormant that they fall out of
the hive and remain insensible for a short space
of time, and while in this state are perfectly
harmless, and can be dealt with in any way de
sired. The method it at followt t '
Procure a large mushroom, which, when ripe,
it of a dark, brownish color, but white before.
It generally springs up about swampv ground
and in meadows.- Take one of these and roll it
in a piece of paper, pressing it to almost one
half of its original bulk; then place it in some
heated place, say a bake-oven, and let it remain
there until dry enough to hold fire. Having
made ready the mushroom, take a box, made for
the purpose, of the tame length and breadth of
the hive irom which the beet are to be taken,
and about four or tix inches high, and over
KV till? . - -
A i - ta.f-n tuith . mft.lc and holv
spread a sheet or table cloth, pressing it down
into the box, so as to make a hole into which the
bees may fall. Over thia place the hive, setting
fire to a piece of the mushroom ef the size of a
hen's egg; place it directly under the bees
and by the time they inhale a sufficient quantity
of the fumes, they will fall down into the pit
prepared for their reception. Vi hen it it ascer
tained with certainty that they have all fallen
down, remove the old hive and place another
over the beet, and in a short time, when their
tenses return, they will soon find their way in
to the hive.
Some turn the empty hive upside down, and
place the bees over it, and then proceed as be
fore. I prefer the former plan. Either way it
is absolutely necessary that all the beet be out
of the hive before commencing to take out the
honey; for it it not an unfrequent occurrence
that the queen, the mother of the family, remaint
and is the last one to leave the hive; In this
case she should be sourht for and rettored to the
colony; for, it is a well-known fact, that with
out the presence of the queen, there it no tucn
thing as order; but, on the contrary, nothing out
'Jfrns'?!! end confusion. Then the greatest care
should be tokefl to have her placed safely in the
new hive, and no effort should be spared until
she is found. .
The above method is superior to every other,
from the fact that it will suit all sorts and sizes
of hives, while in this particular, many others
are deficient, and fall snort of rightly accom
plishing the purpose for which they were de

Terrible Affray at Portland.
Six Mzn Wounded. Some time during Fri
day night, a number of the crew of the South
ern Belle, and some of the people of Portland
engaged in a row, on the forecastle deck of the
boat, in which the shore men were worsted.
The row, as near as could be ascertained, began
through a trifling difference of opinion expressed
by a 'big Irishman' on the one side, and one or
the Portland boys on the other. The former had
said he co aid whip the best man in Portland, and
the latter said he could not. With this the big

Science of Color In Dress.
Unfortunately for our health and comfort, the
aching of science are too often disregarded, if
they interfere with our habits. Science, when
not practically applied, looses iu value; it wants
fixedness, stability. Its application is its em
bodiment; without it, it is a mete figment of the
brain. Its business it to inform the mind, and
remove erroneous impressions ; and its high
est aim is usefulness. The popular belief with
respect to dress, that a black areas it warmer,
both in Winter and Summer, than a white one,
t erroneous. The truth is, that, the material
being the same, a black dress is cool in Winter
and warm in Summer while a white one is
warm in Winter and cool in Summer; that is to
say, the one it cool when we require warmth, and
warm when we require to be cooled; while the
other it warm when, we are cool, and cool when
we are warm, and tbut answers the purpoie of
dress, which It, to protect the body from the in
fluence of the weather.
Science teaches that dark colors absorb heat,
and part with it much more rapidly than light
ones; black and white being me two extremes.
How strange that this knowledge has not been
applied to dress I If the bowls of two spoons,
the one polished, and the other smeared with
toot, be held near a fire, it will be found that the
blackened one becomes hot much sooner than
the other; and if now they be both made hot by
holding them against the bars of the grate, and
then removed from the fire and suspended in the
air, it will be seen that the blackened one will
get cool much sooner than the other. It it true
that the dfference in this case is chiefly due to
. - . i, . 1 i . i
me poiitn on one or me spoons, out n is noi al
together due to it. Again : if hot water be
poured into two vessels, the one white and the
other black, the water in the latter will cool be
fore the other. So, likewise, if two persons,
one dressed in black and the other in whiteall
other conditions being the tame were to go
Irom the cold external air into a heated j-oom
the one in black would feel the heat sooner than
the other, and on leaving the room would be
more likely to take cold than the other. It it
therefore, evident that a light-colored drets it
more conducive to health and comfort than a
dark one, since it preVentt the external heat or
cold from too suddenly reaching the body, and
prevents the body from too suddenly parting
wun its heat; and thus that it keeps it in a more
We may now understand the reason why ani-

whitenets preserves the heat of their bodies
much better than any other color. So, likewise,
liiu ui iil, iu vouaeuueuee of tne wnueneaa ol
tnow, is prevented from parting with its heat.
It is not so much ty snow protecting the earth
from the external cold, that it does such valua
ble service, at by its preventing the radiation of
iht internal heat. This whiteness of snow, and
of polar animals, must not be looked upon as the
result of blind chance; it strikingly exempunes
the wisdom and goodness of the Creator.
The above observations are peculiarly appli
cable to the case of men engaging in Arctio ex
peditions. 1 do not know what dress iney usu
ally wear, but it is quite clear that a white
woollen one would be the most appropriate; ana
if it had a gloss upon it, it would be so mucn
the better. This they might have learned from
observing the animals in those regions.

We heard a good story, a few days since, a-
bout a good old deacon somewhere out in 'York
Stale,1 which was something after this wise
lie was one of those upright, digntnea ten ot
men who make it a rule to perform their duty,
and then make the beat of the matter, however
the event may turn out; but everything on his
farm was kept in the neatest manner. It had
got to be quite late in the season for mowing,
and still the deacon had a fine piece ot grass,
which he had been unable to cut, on account ot
a prets of other matters; so one beautiful day
he put on a large force, and by noon he had it
all down in nic order, when there came up a
thower and wet it. After the shower the old
gentleman came out and walked about 'perfect
ly cool,' and the next day he had it again spread
to dry; about noon there came up another tbow-
er well, out came the deacon again with a long
face, and the dignified air becoming one in hit
station, looked at the hay, and went into the
house. The next day being pleasant, he had
the hay dried, loaded, and driven to the barn, in
to which they had just got as another thower
oegan to tall. I he deacon congratulated him
self that he had finally succeeded in securing
the hay, when a gust of wind struck the barn,
rushing through and completely sweeping the
hay, and scattering it to tne four quarters, and
tearing the barn-doors ofrom their hinges, one
oi which liming mo genueman, proairueu
