THE COTTAGE BY THE SEA.
Childhood's days now pass before me,
Forms and scenes of long ago,
Like a dream they hover o'erme,
Calm and bright as evening's glow.
Days that knew no shade of sorrow,
When my young heart pure and free,
Joyful hailed .each coming morrow
In the cottagoe by the sea.
Fancy sees the rose-tree twining,
'Round the rough and rustic door,
And beside the white beach shining,
Where I gathered shells of yore.
Here my nmotlher's gentle warning,
As she took me on her knee,
And I feel again life's morning,
In the cot: age by the sea.
What though years have rolled around mr,
Though 'mid fairy scenes I roam,
Yet I ne'er shall cease to love thee,
Childhood's dear and happy home.
And when life's loung day is closing,
Oh! how pleasant it would be,
On some faithful breast reposing.
In the cottage by the sea.
Presercing .uttcr.-A patent has
been secured by W. Clark, of London,
for the following method of preserv
ing butter: Th'I'e butter is first well
beaten in the usual manner after
churning, then placed between linen
cloths and submitted to severe press
ure for removing whey and water.
It is now completely enveloped or
covered with clean white paper, which
is coted on both sides with a prepar
tion of the white of eggs, in which
fifteen grains of salt is used for each
egg. This prepared paper is first
`lried, then heated before a tire, or
with a hot iron, just prior to wrap
ping it round the butter. It is stated
that butter may be kept perf.etl.
sweet without any salt for two montlihs,
when thus treated, if placed in a cool,
dry cellar. The submitting of lutt tr
to pressure, as described, is a good
plan, and one which we recommend !
to all our farmers. They can easilý
practise it with a ,nall cheese press.
To Rcmore Frerk/r..-You ina v
generally remove freckles withcut
using cosmieties, (whlichl are ottentimes
dangerous by reason of their contain
ing mineral ngexmts,) by macrely timun
lating the asorbeut vessels of the
skin to take tlen up and carry them
away as refuse. Any smart sti muulnnt
will act in this wnav; but it has been
found that the safest are t;tkcn froml
the vegetable kipngdom. One of the
best and easiest is the lotion made of
a tea-cupful of sour mi 1k and a small
quantity of scraped horse-radish; let
this stand from six to twelve hours,
then use it to wash the parts affected
twice or thrice a day.
A Curey fr /hc Earache.-Take a
smiall piece of cotton hatting or cottan
wool, make a depression in the ccii
ter with the end of thie finger, and
fill it with as much ground pepper as
will rest on a five cent piece, gather
it into a ball and tie it up, dip the
ball into sweet oil, and insert it in
the ear, covering the little with cot
ton wool, and use a band:age or cap
to retain it in its place. Almost in
stant relief will be experienced, and
the application is so gentle that an
infant willnot be injured by it, but
experience relief as well as adults.
So says an exchange.
The Hinds Country Gaztte says
Mr. J. G. Austin gathered 1200 bush
els sweet potatoes from two and a
haif acres of land. One of the pota
toes presented to the editor wIighed
81 pounds.
A young lady being asked by a
politician which party she was most
in favor of, replied-"I prefer the
wedding party."
The Millodgeville Union mentions
the fact that a couple of gentlemen
had passed over the South Carolina
railroad who were removing their
negroes from the coast to the interior.
They had fired their dwellings, and
out houses, and destroyed their cot
ton, as far as they were able to do so,
and were seeking safety for their ne
ros.
IF you ste a wife carefully tfooting
her husband's stockings, you may
con'clude it will niot be difficult to
foot her bills.
HIlow sacred, how beautiful, is the
feeling of affection in pure and guile
less bosoms! 'The vain may sneer at
it, the fIasbionable call it fable; the
selfish and dissipated nay affect to
despise it; but tIhe hly passion is
surelr divine, and is made evil by
the corruption of those whom it wouid
bless and pres)rve.
