Maxims on Onion Culture.
Moisture at tne base of the bulb
for any length of time is most in
jurious to the onion; on the other
'hand, a dry heat at the surface u;
very beneficial, as it is the sun heat
alone which renders the (Spanish
onions so superior to the English in
flavor and beauty of the bulbs. Tho
hotter tho season or tho climate, the
sweeter is the flavor of onions; and
the colder the season or the climate
the more pungent.
The boo should never be used
among onions. It does mischief,
and it ah onion is once loosened in
tho soil it never makes much growth
aflerwards. So, too, the bulbs
should never be earthed up; they
and have good depth of s;nl to root
S.a sand, salt and soot are good
top dressings for an onion bed to
be put on at least a week before
sowing. Soot and guano,thrce parts
of i he first t one part of the second,
is a good top dressing for the seed
bed when the seed is sown late, as
it gives tho young plant a good
start to make up for lost time.
Salad onions to be sown every three
weeks, from the cud of March to
the end of August.
If young oiiions suddenly turn
yellow and drop on the ground, it
is pretty certain they are attacked
by Anthomyia ccparum. Tho grub

slim, cylindrical, and from a qnar-

t the heart of the onion and de
stroys its life. As the fly inserts
its eggs close to tho ground, within
the leaf sheaths of tho plant, any
noxious dressing not injurious to
t ie plant may be used to keep the
fly at a distance. Gas house lime
sprinkled between the rows, or over
the whole of the seed bed, will
sometimes serve the purpose, and
at other times fail. When charcoal
is used liberally as a top dressing,
it is very rarely the plants suffer
from this pest. Another enemy is

vines both of melons and cucum

required; remember th-1 melons
like a firm wo mightalmost say a
hard bed to grow in; therefore,
the soil in tvhich they grow should
be quite firm. Take care in plant
ing out or earthing up not to cover
the plants deeply at the collar or
bury the seed leaves.
At a late meeting of the Minister
(Ireland) Flax Improvement Soi
cicty, a largo cultivator of flax
stated that tho best seed to use was
that of Riga, in Russia. Dutch
seed was very good, but the Amer
ican was very inferior, and sold for
fifty por cent, less than Riga.
More than one-half of tho flax
grown from American seed trocs
into tow when scutched, while
three-fourths of that obtained
from Riga seed was good lorg llax.
The peach crop in Western New
York is said to promise favorably.

Result of Arbitary Arrests.
We are t dvised, tip'on what we
nae a right to regard as unu s
tior.ablo authority,' that the recent
a uldeu death of Secretary Chase's
brother lion. E. J. Chase, Uni
ted States Marshall of the Nor

tributed by his nearest friei.ds to
the iiifluenco upon him of the sum
mary orders of the Administration,
commanding him to arrest and in
carcerate a number of his lifelong
neighbors a;:d friends, upon pn
tciided charges of "disloyalty."
Upon first receiving his on'ers, it
is said that Marshal Chu-e wrote
or telegraphed to the Department,
remonstrating against the arrcits,
but only received in reply an im
perative mandate for the execu
tion of the order. Ho thereupon,
called upon the particj, acquainting
them w'.th the f.icts, aim informing
them that it would be necessary
for him to obey, to which they as
sented, acquitted him of all blame
or -complicity in the matter. A

STAMPING MUSLIN FOR EM,
Lampiblack, mixed with a soltn
tiou of gum arable or starch, will
make a very o jd t oiuposition for
stamping white muslin for embroid
ery. Prussian blue, ground to pow
der and mixed witli"a little boiled
starch, answers for stamping bluo
on white muslin. All colors used
for stamping should bo of such a
nature that will wash out easily
with soa;i and water, hence those
fast colors which are used to print
on calicoes arc unsuitable. For
stamping on a black ground, such
as a piece of black cloth or velvet,
common pipeclay, mixed with a
little starch, makes a white stampi
ing composition. Lamp black, mixi
cd with resin in a molten condition,
then cooled and ground to powder,
with a little water, makes a good
black for stamping.

COUNTERFEIT POSTAL CURRENCY.
In answer to numerous inquiries
on the possibility of detecting the
counterfeit from tho genuine postal
cuircncy, we can inform our read
ers that there are no means ot disi
criminating between them. The
texture of the paper on which the
notes are printed a fiords no crit,
rion whatever, and the small moiii
ogruin. ABC, on some dcnoniimn
fious, is only a trademiark of the
American Uankiiioto C'omnanv:
the absence of it is no proof of an
illegitimate bill. Some of the notes
were printed by the National Rank
note Company, and others by tho
firm previously referred to. The
only way of detecting a fraudulent
note is by the coa'seness of ilsexi
edition; this can only bo done when
the bill is new, and by a person
who is a iiiilgo of 6Uch work-
When the note is dirty and crum
pled up, no one, not even an expert,
can .tf'c'ly aflirm as to the good
ciiaracter of any particular no'.e.
This is poor encouragement, but it
all wc arc able to give.

How soon we grow tiredT A lit
tle excitement, a few hours of
thought or of labour, an hour spent
in walking, and how weary we be
come, how glad when the hour of
rest approaches! And pleasure, or
even idleness, wearies us as soon as
occupation. Wc cannot keep at
a ly thing long together without
growing very tired.
Ai.d how wonderfully soon wo
grow weary of doing good, op be
ing good! Perhaps at New Year's
day wc formed many good resolu
tions, full of earnest intentions: but
lime passes on, and how much have
we done? Perhaps wc begun some
new work, and kept on awnilet but
very soon we grew tired, and at
last gave it up.
Easily wearied! Wc can bear a
little suffering. Wc can be resign
ed for a time, and take patiently
what the Father sends us. But af
ter a while it gets irksome and wo
give up patience, and begin to com
plain; unless, as something away
from ourselves, grace is given
which makes us strong and trust
Easily wearied are we with each
other. How impatient of wrong,
how petulant beneath the slightest
unkinduess or neglect! If our Sa
viour were like us, if ho bore uot
with our infirmities, where- eould

Easily wearied! How sweet mast

longer, tho repose is not ur distant.

being played, it prints distinctly
tho staff, time, notes and move
