lb Prepare .oueekold Bread.
Mix four ounces Of salt, three quarts
of water, a pint of yeast, and a peck
of seconds flour, in a trough; when
properly fermented, knead and di
vide it into loaves. Sometimes a por
tion of rye-meal, rice, flour, or boiled
potatoes, are mixed with the flour
previous to th6 kneading, the two
former serve to bind the bread, the
latter cause it to be open and spon
Boil a bushel of the coarsest bran,
in seven gallans of water for one hour
keep stirring it, that it may not stick
to the bottom, then pour it off in a
trough, or tub full of holes, over
which lay a coarse cloth or sieve.
On the top of the whole pat a wooden
cover, with a weight sufficiently hea
vy to press out the liquor from the
bran, which will sink to the bottom
of the tub in a thick pulp. This
liquor will contain the essential oil
of the corn, and when kneaded in with
a proper portion of flour, it will yield
one-third more than the same quanti
ty would, made with water in the
usual way.
To make French Bread.-Put a
pint of milk into three quarts of wa
ter. In winter let it be scalding
hot, but, in summer, little more than
milk-warm; put in salt sufficient.
'rake a pint and a half of good ale
yeast, free from bitterness, and lay
it in a gallon of water the night be
fore. Pour off the yeast into the
milk and water, and then break in
rather more than a quarter of a pound
of butter. Work it well till it is dis
solved; then beat up two eggs in a
basin, and stir them in. Mix about
a peck and a half of flour with the
liquor, and, in winter, make the dough
pretty stiff, but more slack in sum
mer; mix it well, and the less it is
worked the better. Stir the liquor
into flour, as for pie-crust, and after
the dough is made cover it with a
cloth, and let it lie to rise, while the
oven is heating. When the loaves
have lain in a quiet oven about a
quarter of an hour longer, Then
take them out, and chip them with a
knife, which will make them look
spongy, and of a fine yellow, where
as rasping takes off this fine colour,
and renders their look less invi
To make wholesome mixed Bread.
-Take of rice 3 lbs.; boil it in a suf
ficient quantity of water till reduced
to a soft pulp, then rub it with 6
lbs. of mealy potatoes, cooked by
steam, and, when well blended, add
6 lbs. of flour; make the whole into
a dough with water, and ferment with
yeast, in the usual manner.
To make bran Bread.-To four
pounds of best household flour, put
two table-spoonsful of small beer
yeast, and a half pint of warm wa
ter; let it stand two hours in a warm
place. Add half a pound of bran,
aJd a tea-spoonful of salt; make
the dough with skim milk or warm
water; cover it up, and let it stand
an hour. Put the loaves into warm
dishes, and let them stand 20 min
utes before they go into the oven.
Mix with half a peck of flour, con
taining the whole of the bran, a quar
ter of a pint of small beer yeast, and
a quart of lukewarm water; stir it
well with a wooden spoon until it be
comes a thick batter, then put a nap
kin over the dough,and set it about
three feet from the fire, until it rises
well. Add, if requisite, a little more
warm water, strew over it a table
spoonful of salt, and make the whole
into a stiff paste. Put it to the fire,
and when it rises again knead it into
the dough. If baked in tins the
loaves will be improved.
Mr. Brown is very hard of hear
ing; and a few days since, while he
was conversing with v gentleman in
front of a store, his negro, Ben, came
up and said:
"Pleas, Massa, give me two bits
to buy some 'baccer."
"Eh?" said Mir. Brown, putting
his hand to his ear, for a trumpet.
"Pleas, massa, give me four bits to
buy some baccer."
"Eh! Ben, ycu are rising on me,
h? I had bet:er heard you at first!"
Go at moonlight's dreamy hour,
Where the silvery ripples shine ;
Mark a little, lovely flower;
Be that lovely flowret thine.
Mild as heaven's own blue it beameth
Like a clear and %loudless day.
Image of true love, it seemeth
To the heart sweet words to say.
And methiuks its blue eyes glisten.
Full of love and tender thought,
While from far it whispers, (listen.)
"0 forget, forget me not !"
A man in getting out of an omni
bus a few days ago. made use of two
rows of knees as bannisters to steady
himself, at which the ladies took
offence, and one of them said aloud:
"A perfect savage!"
"True," said a wag inside, "'hlie be
longs to the Paw-nee tribe."
Yankee Prisoners.-The number
of Yankee prisoners captured and
brought to this city since the conm
mencement of the presnt war is
2685, of which number 500 have been
sent for safe keeping to forts in Lou
isiana, 160 to Castle Pinckney, in
Charleston harbor, and 150 to Co
lumbia, South Carolina. The num
ber now remaining in Richmond, in
the different tobacco factories, is
about 1900. Some half dozen fac
tories are devoted to the accomninoda
tion of the Hessians-sick and well.

"'First-rate-Fine."-W«e learn
that while the Eighth Georgia Rlegi
ment were on picket at Ma.son's Hill,
a member of the Oglethorpe Light
Infantry was put on duty about two
hours before day. When daylight
came he saw the warlike line of Fed
oral pickets off two or three hundred
yards, and the following dialogue en
Oglethorpe, (at the top of his voice)
How are you?
Yankee-Good morning; how are
yon this morning?
Oglethorpe-You are a pretty darn
