ExtraordInary honors were paid thio
goose inloient times; and it is still
held in xPeOeneration. by pWaebf the
Eastern ftion. - The igure that oc
curs so frequently on JBuddist monu
ments is the Brahmanese goose. The
ancient Britons, according to Cisar,
held It impious to eat the flesh of goose.
The ibis was another bird held in the
greatest sanctliy by the old Egyptians.
There are still numerous pits contain
Ing Ibis mummies in thateountryo. The
largest of them, a little to the westward
of the pyramid of Aboq lr, Is about
twenty feet deep. The d5or of this pit,
for probably a depth of many feet, is
covered with heaps on heaps, and lay
era on layers, of coarse earthen jars,
the lids cemented down, containing
each the body of an ibis, preserved
with bitumen and enclosed in numer
ous folds of narrow cloth bandages.
Some of the mummies are found In a
state of great preservation-black and
charred, and incapable of being taken
whole out of the bandages, but all the
bones, the hea4s, and all the feathers
entire. Whether these animals were
thus embalmed and brought to this
place of burial whenever found dead,
or whether collected here only as ob
jecto of worship, Is a question oi'which
no ancient authority assists in. the solu
tion. The Mohammedans have a great
veneration and esteem for the stork.
It is almost as sacred with them as the
ibis was with the Egyptians; and they
would look upon a person as profane
who should kill, or even harm one.
So precious were these birds held In
Thessaly, which country they are said
to have olearcti of serpents, that the
slayer of a stork was puniphed with
death. They were tbQught inuch'of at'
Rome; for wheoi a person, from a freak
of luxury, or(Wred it to be pla-ed on
his dinner.,table, he drew upon himself
theotfll oblcqiiy of the whole city.
eobin Is considered in several
countries a sacred bird; to kill one is
little leSq than sacrilege, and its eggs
are free from the hands of the bird
master. It is asserted that the respect
shown to it by man is joined in by the
animals of the wood. The weasel and
the wild cat, it Is said, will never mo
. lest it when killed. One cause ror the
veneration in which it is held may be
- the superstition which represents It as
the medium through which mankind
are wared of approaching death. Before
the decease of a person, a robin is be
lieved, in many instances, to tap thrice
at the window of the room In which
the sick person is lying. Grimm says
that the peculiar veneration with
which this bird Is treated has been
shown by the whole German race from
remote times; and he refers to the
bird's color and its name as evidence
that it was sacred to Tilor, the god of
lightning. The swallow, too, in Ger
many is everywhere deemed a sacred
bird. Like the stork, it preserves the
- house on widh it builds its nest from
fire and lightning. The Spanish peas
aura have a tradition that It was a swal
lo w that tried to pluc1k the thorns out
of the crown of Christ as he hung upon
the cross ; hence they have a great rev
ere nce for this bIrd, and will never de
stroy it. In parts of France the wren
is a sacred bird. Tro kill it or rob its
nesat Is decmed an atr'ocity wvhich wvill
bring down the lightning on the culp.
rit's awelling. Such an act was also
r egarded with horror in Scotland.
The whydah- bird and the water
wagtai are held sacred by the natives
* of several parts of Africa. Among the
Mandan Indians the dove is held so
sacred that neither man, w~oman, nor
child will injnre it; Indeed, the Man
dan Indians declare that even their
dogs, ferecious as they are, instinctive
ly respect that bird.

Uonsiderable progress has been made
with the new museum now forming at
the-Paris Observatory. Among other
objects at e Mercator's glo'aes, daiting
from the middle of the sixteenith cen
tury. Tihat figuring the earth is the
first on which meridians' of longitude
and parallels of latitudle werec laid
down. TIhc great cquatorial lakes' of
Africa, it is reported, are all to' be
found upon it. The glass cases contain
the first portable meridian circle con
structed on Admiral Mouchecz's plan;
the pendulums of lz.variable dlimeni
sfons employed b)y Captains Fraissinet
and1( Duperre in their voyages aroundl
the world1, for the dletermination of
the absolute value of the intensity of
the cenpetal force and of gravity at dif
ferent points of the earth's suirface;
and the apparatus used by M. Cornu,
of the Iustitute, with a viewv to deter
mine the velocity of light from obser
vations made between the Observatory
* and the Tower of Montliery. Another
-glass case, adds the Jouurnal des Debuts,
contains the standaid metre of the First
Republic; the toise used in 1738 in
Pesru for measuring a degree at the
rquator ; the toise usedl in Lapland some
short lime afterward for measuring
the polar dlegrec, and the platinum

BL'TTtan HAY AND PASvUnu.-Anyone
passing through agricultural districts,
say in Juno when the herbage -has
about or nearly reached its fulf growth t
must notice how land Is only haif or a 1
quarter utilized, by allowing the un- a
checked growth of all sorts of weeds.
A large proportion of this land Is pas
tured, and the way the pocr cattle have
to seek out the little grass from among <
the overwhelming weeds is a source of I
actual sadness. These pasture fields, I
too, are allowed to go on producing <
noxious weeds for a series of years a
without an effort being made to get rid
of thei by the surest mode known to
the observing farmer-frequent cultiva- a
tion. Then, again, we sue the same I
proportion of weeds in many fields from t
which the cattle hy is to be cut and
this is done year after year just as
though cows and other cattle would I
eat the weeds any more rapidly dry I
than green. It is as apparent as the t
sun at noonday that to whatever extent I
weeds are allowed to grow1just to that
extent is the land wasted. Now that
this can be avoided in most cases scarce
ly admits of doubt. And what Is trae t
of the pasture fields, Is the same where
the herbage is left to become hay. The
good clean field is the exception. Not
only the ox-eye daisy, but sorrel and
plantation, and asters of various kinds,
which cattle care no more for when
dry than when green, constitute the
bulk of what is to be hay; and it is tql
orably good stuif which has but one-.
fourtit of extraneou4 matter.* We have
before suggested that our agricultural
sooletles, which give so many and such
high premiums for fast trotting horses
might at least share a little for the en
couragement of tile food which the
noble animal Is to eat. Premiums for
well-grown hay, clean hay, hay from
improved grasses, and well-managed
hiay-fields, would surely be objects
worthy of the attention of even a "State
agricultural society," and we think it
will become so if the press will unite
in commending the subject to general
attention. Surely-thero, i no greater
eyesore than a field, looking as if it
might produce thirty bushelsof wheat,
seventy-five of corn, or from two to
three tons of first-class hay to an acre,
allowed to be covered with masses ot
noxious weeds, which call and should
be destroyed. A merchant from the
city who may pass through a rural sec
tion, and see these myriad of ox-eyed
daisy flowers, will almost invarlabty
ask why they are there, and if they
cannot be exterminated and good hay
and grain raised instead.
SHUT-HonNS FO TilnE DAInY.--BC
fore the uncertainties of tradition wore
supplarted by the facts of history, the
Durhamn cow was known and highly
prized in some parts of EnglanI for her
dairy qualities. In the earlier history
of this broed they were known as the
reeswater, tIe lolderness, the York
shires or Durham, depending upon the
location where bred and kept. But,
about a century ago, Mr. Turner, of
Ilurworth, bred the famous hull Hub
back, and from him and hih d( som3ndnts,
Foijumbe, Bolingbroke, Favurite, and
Comet, were established the various
families of the improve Short-horn
breq41 of cattle. Robert and Charles I
Collng, taking the lead and making so
lections from the Teeswaters, York
shires and Durhams, established the 4
Duchess family oL' Short-horns which
has been sure to improve every other
known breed of cattle with which they
have been crossed. 'Tihe Collings have i
been followed by Bates, Booth, Spenl.4
eers Ducie, and others of Enlgland, by
M1orris, Thorn, Sheldon, Alexander,
Groom, Wadsworth, Kelley, Harrison,4
lButts, Samnuel Campbell, and a host of1
others, umntil tihe Short-horn is wvell
known and duly appreciated ill every1
civilized country of the world. Al
though some of the breeders named,
and many others, have bred for fancy,
rather than for the dlairy, yet the dauiry1
qualities are inherenmt ini tihe breed, in1
an eminent degree, and only rcquirec
prop)er managemlent to develop it in its
original st-ength with absolute (or
talu ty. I mlighit give recordis of mulk,
of buitter and cheese, of Short-horns,
and their grades, lbutit will p)erhaps be
suflicient for me to say that t,he largest
yild of milk on record was by Duchess
1st, the miotner of tile Duchess family
af Shlort-iiorns. The largest yield of
chieese per cow on record was prodlued(,
by a herd of grade Short-horns, owned
by A. L,. Fish, Esq., of Hlerkimner
countmy, New York. The great value
of time Short-h orn over other breeds for
lie dlairy, is inl her ability, to (ilgest anld1
assimilate the food she consuimes more
perfectly than aiiy othler breed, thereby
enabling her onl a given amount of food,
to produce the most milk, the most but
ter, the most chieesa, and the most beef
for the 100(d consumed, of any breed of1
eattlie we have.
