It is related ef a worthy divine, whose field of labors was sitnated net many hundred miles from Salem, that he fire'aehed politic to his congregation for snch a rnglh of time that even the oldest church mem ' bers forgut all about the gospel, and fell into a profound ignorance with regard to creeds, forms of worship, and cbnrch regulations. After the clergyman's death, the elders went to consult a celebrated divine about obtaining a successor. "What is yon r creed I" asked the divine. "Our creed!" "Yes your prinriplcs what are they?" "Oh, we are all Democrats, but two!" "I mean, whjt is your platform your church I" " Oh!" exclaimed one, "that is principally oak." Woirra TrAtiSG Aoaix. When Nicholas Bid die familiarly railed Xick iliilille was connect ed with the United States Rank, there was an old negro named Harry, who nsed to be loafingaround the premises.

OLD Azel Shucks tells the following anecdote of a blacksmith in Alleghany County, New York: Old Bill Slemmers always works his hammer in the open air, for tbe sake of ventilation, as he says.

Ax'old farmer, wbo feared neither God nor man. had hired a devout negro: and to get some Bnudav work ont of him, would always plan a case of "necessity" on Satnrday, and on Snnday morning, wonld put this point to the man's con science.

"AaU-ERS WOBst. Then are many Jnhs for leisure honrs. which may be performed without Interfering at all with plowing, planting, and other field labor, if thry are only thonght of in time. l'run'inc fruit trees is too often greatly neglrc- tod. Let this be attended to when it is too wet to plow or plant, or to make fences. For snth work one needs a small, than azr a "T1 i and a good knife. A large pocket knife will sub serve a cood uurpoio: bnt. in the absence of a good knife, 1 take an old n'e an.1 get a giod blacksmith to make a pruning knife, with the blade shaped like the blade of a grain sickle or a grass book. If the blade be fonr or tive inches long, after It is curved, it will be long eunitgh. Pruning raws, which are fastened on the end of a fork bauille or pule, and nsrtl uy toe operator while standing on the ground, are sometimes preferable to any other tools for pruning fruit trees. They may bo obtained at most hardware store. After a tree has been pruned, cover the wonnds with rosin and tallow, of equal parts, melted to gether in a small kettle, and applied with a paint brnsh. Collect sawdnst, chip mannre and scrapings of yards, and spread them around fruit trees, for the purpose of keeping the soil loose, and promo ting tne nealtliygrowtn or jming trees, ttitu a broad hoe, scrape the bodies of lrnit trees, and if the bark is already smooth, tie a rag ou the end of a stick for a large swab, and apply thin soft soap to the bodies and limbs for six or eight feet above the ground. In localities where the borer is accustomed to work in the yellow locust, shave off and scrape off all the ouiside or dead bark for six or eight feet high, aud smear the bodies of the tree with fitch and tallow, applied with a whitewash brnsh. f the pitch aud tallow be heated too hot, it will spoil the brnsh by burning tbe hair. Notwithstanding all that has been said aud written against allowing a tree of any kind to grow ao aa to form a crotch, roost persona will persist in permitting many young trees to grow with two equal branches, thus forming a crotch, which is very liable to split by the wind or by a large burden of fruit. Procnre a carriage bolt of the proper length, aud bore a bole through the crotch, so that the bolt may be seen at the junc tion of the limbs that it has been driven iu. Put a large. washer at the bead of the bolt and one at tbe nut, and screw it up tightly. Many a valu able tree has been, and may be, saved in this way from being split down at the crotch. Some fruit trees will never produce any good fmit, and some will not bear even poor fruit. I had several snch trees, and every efl'ort faild to make them bear fruit but this one. We erected a portable fence around each one, and kept a pig or two iu the enclosure. Four pnuels, about six teen feet long, of light board fence were placed around a tree, ami simply nailed together at the corners. After the pigs had been in that pen about a month, they were removed to another tree. If this remedy fails to produce good fruit, after tbey have been well mauured and regrafted, then let "the trees be cut down. Make a high board peu around plum trees, for young chirk ens, and keep them t here nil til they are old enough to run at large, and see if tbey will not destroy or frighteu away the enrculio, and thus save a crop of plums. The experiment is worthy of trial, as it promises good results. Some people do their churning with a sheep, and keep him tied to a tree or tethered iu the yard when he is not churning." Let liim be tied to a fruit tree, after protecting it so that be can not gnaw the bark off. and see if this means will not produce a crop of plums, cherries, peaches, or other fruit. Theidea is quite too prevalent among many far mers that tbe soil needs bnt one plowing for buckwheat. But my own excrieuce on this poiut is that there is no other crop of grain that will pay better, for twice plowing, than buck wheat. If the ground is soil ground, or wlie.it, oats or barley stubble, it ought to bo plowed iu May. It would be a good practice, if there is not too much clay in the subsoil, to plow it three or four inches deeper than usual. Then plow the ground again about the first of July, or when the grain is to bo sown. When thero are Cauada thistles, or other nox ious plants, tbe plowing should bo deferred until the last of Mar, if there is not mnch sod, because thistles will be mnrh more subdued if they bo allowed to grow a few iuchts high, before the ground is plowed, than to plow it before such plants have grown aay, or but very little. Cor. Country Gentleman. Caltare af Care, far Faddcr. , Every farmer who baa had any experience in cultivating corn for fodder will, I think, agree with me that it is one of the most profitable, crops that can bo raised for feeding purposes. My ex perience has been mostly sowing in drills. Iu the first place, the ground selected should lie rich aud productive; then take a plow aud fur row one way. about three feet apart; drop the corn in the furrows at the rate of twenty-lite grains to every foot; then follow and cover with tbe hoe. This gives an opportunity to work it with a plow or cultivator, aud thus prevent all grass aud weeds from hindering its growth. Fod der raised in this way may besonu as late as the middle of June. When grass begins to fail, I CmMhis an excellent feed for cons. A little thrown to them each morning will not only keep them in good condition, bnt will mnch increase both the quantity and quality of milk. I am satisfied if every farmer havingadozen cows will cultivate half an acre or more each season he will feel abundantly repaid for his time aud laber. If wished fur winter use, it can be cut and cured in the shock, and when well cured, cattle and sheep will eat it in preference to bay. Farmers, givo it a trial. Cor. Ohio Farmer. Prapagattaa af Carraau. In order to raise currant bushes from cuttings, so that they may have a clean stem and bnt one set of roots, and those at tbe lower end, like seedlings, I take a cutting about ten inches long, and prepare it in the usual way, by cutting off tne tower end square, linen cutout tne onus or eyes, excepting the three onr four uppermost oues, which are reserved to make the top. I then stretch a liue, start tbe cnttings by its side, eight inches apart in the row, their ends one inch in the ground, and mould tbem up fonr or five in ches in depth, like corn hills when planted in drills. When they become well established by having roots, which will be in lnid-snmmer, level tbe mould of earth back toils former place. Should any roots have started from the intended stem, clean them off aud plant them out at one tear old. The advautageof growing bushes in the above manner is that tbey t ill not send up suckers as those do that have been grown by set ting the cuttings deep in the ground, aud allow ing two or more sets of roots to grow. Cor. Conntty Gentleman. Cheap Saasaaer Frew far Here. A correspondent of lhoJIome$tead gives the fol lowing as an economical manner of summer fettl ing bogs, practiced by one af his neighbors. He practictd this plan for many years, aud fonud it ua excellent one: "A few rods of grass-plat convenient to the pen is reserved for this purpose, and is mannred lij the weekly suds from the wash-room. Com mencing at one side of tbe plat, a large basket of the thick, short grass is mowed each morning while the dew is on, and a part given to the snineat each feeding, three times a day. By the time the last portion of the grass is cut, the first is ready to be cnt again, and in this way the ground is mowed aver many times during tbe summer, w bile the grass is kept short, thick, ten der and sweet. It keeps the hogs in a healthy growing condition they are fed with 'as mnrh as they will eat every day, and bnt little addi tional food is required beside the slops from tbe kitchen." Grape Mildew Prevented. A gentleman who has visited the experiment gronnds at Washington, informs ns that some experiments foe preventing the mildew of the grape, b erec ting a cheap roof over them, seemed to answer the purpose perfectly. The roof, he states, may le simply a board sixteen inches wide, nailed to the post. On a hnndred rarities treated in this way, not any mildew waa seen; while all the same yard were entirely mined. Fnrther ex periments are necessary. Country Gentleman. Take Case of Tkk.ks. Ho who has planted trees has done well, bnt he who has watched them and cared for their early growth has done better. There need be very little said about pruning, were the young trees properly looked after. The rubbing off a superfluous bnd here, pinching a rampant shoot there, and the jodi- (Scions nse of tbe pocket knife as occasion require. win soon put a young orcaard in tbe way it should go. Salt for Plum Trees. It is said that the application of a half peck of salt, in the spring, aronnd a pnlm tree, will be fonnd very effica cious in promoting its growth and frni'tfnlness, and also in protecting it from disease.

AW OLD PIONKKK OF 1XDIAX.. The Origia af Tipprraaac Baltic Oraaaa. From the Indianapolis Sentinel ) There are many citizeus of the State jrt living, especially in the southern portion, who were per sonally acquainted with Gen. Clark. He was one of thirty-one children by the same father and mother, twenty-nine sons ami two rlancuters. He was a cousin of Gen. George Rogers Clark, of Kentucky, wno was also well knoxtn in frontier life. Gen. Marston G. Clark left his home in Vir ginia in the spring of 1782, being then nineteen years old. After traversing tbe "dark and bloody ground," (Kentucky,) he went into the then North west Territury, crossing the Ohio Rivera few miles above the falls, after which he was a citizen of Indiana Territory and Slate until his death, which occurred at his farm in Washington County abont tbe year 1845 or 1846. He was with "Mad Anthony" General Wayne in sev eral of his expeditions against the Indians. He was with Gen. William Henry Harrison in most of bis campaigns in tbe Northwest. He once told the writer that he was persoaally acquainted with the celebrated Shawnee warrior Trcnmseh, aa well as bis brother, the Prophet, who com manded the Indians at the battle of Tippecanoe. With General Harrison at the latter battlo, in 1811, he aud Col. Taylor were apixiinted by the conunau ling General to si lee t a camping ground for tbe army for the night. While Col. Taj lor. was waiting for a guard to be detailed to accom pany them, Gen. Clark proceeded alone and selec ted the place nhich, next morning tcranie the battle-field of Tippecanoe. The judicious selec tion he made is apparent to e erv; one n ho hat eter vfsited thathatllc-ficld. It is on au elevated piece of ground overlookiuc the wet. swamnr prairie in front, with a small creek in the rear of tlio army. Inc. attack of the Indians was made from the front or prairie side of tbe encampment, aud tbe marks in the -trees yet standing show that the Indians' shots were far above tbe heads of most of the army. To tbe sound judgment of urn. uiarK in tue seiccuou oi mat naiuc-neld was attributed the safety of tho army from butchery and annihilation. Gen. Clark waa a man with a strong and iron-like constitution and an indomit able will. He was abont six feet in height, straight as an arrow; wjth a .strong muscular fame. In the earlier days of tbe Territory be dressed in tbe Indian stjle, and could only be distinguished from them by the color of the'akin. He held many oflires oft rust and emnlnment, among which was that of Indian Agent. He rep resented Washington County in the Legislature of both Territory and State. He was a warm supporter of Gen. Jackson's administration, and also of Gen. Harrison in the memorable Presi dential campaign of 1840, and was selected by the Electoral College as their messenger to carry tbe vote of Indiaua to Washington, which he did, dressed in full Indian costume. The last time he visited this city waa during the session of the Legislature, 1842-3. He. was then in his seventy third year. J. H. B. N. Cawatiaa; New Greraaaeks. Years of experience have made the counters who have been longest employed marvelonsly expert aud almost infallible, their fingers passing from one nnto to another with Jthe celerity and regularity of some wondcrfnl machine. The lady who sits nearest to tbe cbirf of tbe room, and who has come to be considered a sort of assistant to him, having sometimes performed bis duties during his absence, has been engaged in the-di-vision ever since its organization in 1862, and probably has no rival in accuracy and dexterity in counting. On many occasions she has counted liny iivuMuua uuico iu uue iiay.

If any gentleman thinks it can, let him try the experiment of simply tapping his finger on a table at the above rate and we predict that at the end of half an hone's trial be will change his mind. There are other ladies who are almost aa rapid and accurate. Tliey arc sometimes called upon, with others equally as skillful from tbe re demption division, to visit otber'cUieK, when tbe Treasury offices in those places are to be examin ed, and to assist in counting the Government funds there. Tbrongh this division asd under Jhese skillful fingers has passed every note, whether legal-tender or fractional, which has been issued by the, TJuited States sinee the beginning of the rebellion every uote-which we have ever bandied or seen as well as all the good notes, and many millions of imperfect bonds and notes which were never pnt in circulation. The tatal'valne of the money which'has been cannted in this division previous tn tbe first day of July, 1872, was, according to the Treasurer's last anunal report, nearly two thousand nine hundred million dollars more than two hundred and twenty-three millions of which consisted of postal and fractional currency. Jnst now, tbe counters find full employment in counting new legal-tender and fractional notes. From "An Honr Among tke Greenhoekt," in ScrH ner'tfor JpriL Solomon on Advertising.

Catarr. Cronp is one of the most dreaded complaints to which children are liable. It is an inflamma tion of (hat delicate membrane which, continued from tbe mouth, Hues the whole inner surface 'if tbe larj ux ami w indpipe, and finally of the bron chial tubes, or air passages. Both from the importance of its situation and tberapidity wilbw hirh it runs its course, croup one of the most dreaded and fatal affections iu tbe range of juvenile diseases. Tbe symptoms begin with restlessness, which in a few hours is followed by wheezing in the threat and hoarseness, most heard during sleep, while a short dry conoh soon after succeeds. atteuded with a tightness and constriction in the throat, indicated by the child frequently raising its bands to the part as if to remove some obstruction. The difficulty of breathing becomes rapidly more distressing, and the face assumes an aspect of great anxiety ; the veins in tbe neck become swollen and knotted, or varicose, and the voice, every time the child speak or conghs, has a sharp metallic ring, which soon settles iu a steady sound, like the crow or crnnpy noise made by fowls when caught aud held in tbe hand that character, in fact, which has given tn the disease the popular name which It bears. Thecongh, at first dr, is after a time attended by a thick, ropy expectoration, which, clingiug like glue to the fauces, and extremely difficult "to remove, causes tbe child great suffering to expel, the patient appearing half suffocated in its abor tive attempts to void the adhering whitish phlegm. With these symptoms come ea thirst, brat and considerable fever; the pnlse is quick and vibrating, while the efforts of the child to obtain air cause it tn arch tbe neck back in a manner most distressing to witness, till the anxiety of c-iuiiteiiauce and difficulty of inspira tion increasing, the little patient expires abont the third dav. strangulated from the interruption of air to the lung-.

In common practice, tho cohesion of mortar is greatly impaired by using ton large a portion of sand; it should never exceed two pn rt 3 Vr mea sure to one of lime patv. A cak of lime weigh ing two hundred and eighty pounds, made into eight cubic feet of lime paste, should be mixed with sixteen bushels of damp sand. The notion used to be generally riitertaiiied that the longer lime waa slaked before it was used, tbelietter would lie the mortar made of it. This, ho ever, is not thecal with our common fat lime and sand mortars. The sand should be mixed with the slaked lime as soon as the latter becomes cold, and no more water should bo employed than will reduce the lime toa thick paste. Iu prepar ing mortar, the unslaked lime should he placed on ho.ird'.nnd sheltered from the sun and rain; it should In open alnite and surrounded with suine sand. The water nrtessary to slake limn shnuld be iHiuretl iitwii it with anyeuitable vessel, and care should be taken to stir the lime so as to bring the water into contact with every portion, when it may be left until all the vapor has passed off. The (and may now be incorporated with the lime by mrana of a boe or a shovel; aud, if necessary, a little water may be added to pro dnee a homogeneous, consistent paste, wheu it is reaily for use. Sand from the sea-shore should never be employed for making mortar witbont being first washed with fresh water, because the salt left in such sand is liable to absorb moisture and prevent the mortar becoming hard. In put ting np walls of brick or stone, care should be taken that the stouos or bricks be moistened be fore they come iu contact with the mortar. Every brick and stone should be laid in a good lied of mortar, and sbonld receive a blow to fix it firmly. The bncks should not bo laid merely, aa in commou custom, hut forced down so ns to press the mortar into all the pores and cre ices. The superintendent of a buildiug should give his personal attention to tho vertical joints in the nails, as the masons -frequently neglect to fill them up with mortar. Scientific American. Hair Cnttiag. We have always thought that it is a vicious habit to let the hair accumulate on tbe heads of children. The trstrffimry of an eminent French physician, M. Krrdrriqne, proves that injudicious parents, in seeking to embellish tho outnard forms of their little ones, often unconsciously sap their strength. The following is an apt case iu point: A little girl, aged three years' of good health in general, had her hair grow excessively long du ring the course of a few months. She was a beautiful child, but had latterly wasted without any apparant cause, lieconiing dnll and npathe tie, losing her appetite and strength, without any nrgauir lesion being discemable. She was placet! upon a tonic regimen, with chalybeates, urn niiuuui. deriving material oeneni, until oer hair was cut short, at the suggestion of a friend, from which time she rapidly gained strength. It wonld appear from this case that the econ omy had suffered a loss in tho expenditure of blood necessary for the secretions of an abundant crop of hair. M. Krederiqne considers that it is a formation of the coloring matter which chiefly exhausts the blood, as this is formed at the ex pense of the hrt'tuatosine. Wetting Bricks. Few people, except buil ders, areof aware the advantages of wetting bricks before laj ing them. A wall twelve inches thick, built of good mortar, with brick well soaked, is stronger, iuetery respect, than one sixteen in ches thick bnilt dry. The reason of this is, that if the bricks are saturated with water ther will not abstract from the mortar the moisture which is necessary to crystallization, and, on the con trary, they will unite chemically witb the mor tar, and become as hard as a rock. On the other hand, if the bricks are put np dry, they imme diately take all tbe moistnre from the mortar, and leave it too dry to harden, and the conse quence is, that when a building of this descrip tion is taken down, or tumbles down of its own accord the mortar falls from it like so mnch sand. To Fix Carpets on Floors. The labor that housekeepers hate every Spring and Fall, of ta king out and putting in tacks when they raise their carpets for dusting, should have suggested a much more convenient and simple plan for ef fecting tbe job. In some places small iron rings are fastened into the floor. The edges of the car pet, or the binding, have hooks sewed or other wise fastened iu. and the rings serve as eyes to these hooks. AU tbe labor required in taking carpets np, or putting them down, is tn hitch these hooks to the rings or unhitch tbem. There is no noise of hammering, no nails required, and the job is a work of bnt a few minutes. Tbe stage carpets in tbe theatre are laid pretty much in the same manner. To Remove Foul Air from Wells. It is well known that many aayfdenta occur tn persons going down into wells to clean them, owing to the noxious gas in such places. To remove the gas before descent is made into any well, a quan tity of burned but unslackrd lime should be thrown down. This, when it cornea in contact with whatever water is below, seta free a great aroonnt of heat in the water and lime, which rushes upward, carrying all the deleterious gases with it; after which descent may be made with perfect safety. The lime also alwirbs carbonic acid in tbe well. !.. t !. Vntira T.L.
