"Sot back," said Mr. Johnson; "what do yoa mean by thatf "Why, said General Houston, "did yon never hear the story V "N.i." replied Mr. J.

On oue occasion, the chapter selected was Genesis xxii, which contains the words "These eight did Milcab bear to Nahor, Abra ham's brother." The preacher discoursed there fruin as follows: Brethren and sisters, let ns consider oor blessings. Morning aud evening our wives and danghters milk the cows, and our wants are supplied. In the- days of good old Abraham, aa you have heard, it took eight to milk a bear, and they did not got ninch at that."

After a long, cold winter and repeated cold spring rains, it takes a certain space of time for the ground to come into a suitable condition to work, or for the seeds to lie deposited therein. It must settle, drain and warm up to a snitaliln degree, before most seeds will germinate in tbe soil. We recollect many a time, in the enthus iasm of our younger experience, of having to do our work over in the garden, for having planted so early that, nltimately, frosts cut off our plants after they bad come np finely. A warm spell oc curring in April, or early in May, makes n impa tient to get .tbe seed into the ground, that, we may have a garden a little ahead of any of our neighbors; but in our variable New England cli mate, it is au unsafe operation to plant any, ex cept tbe more hardy varieties, till settled warm weather in May, which varies in date with differ ent seasons. A good sheltered location foracar den, with previoos preparation of nnderdrairring, trenching and high enrichment, which promotes earliiiess, will lie appreciated now iu warding off frosts, cold winds, &c, during spring. Asmragcu. The beds will now begin to af ford us a supply fur tbe table or market. Care is needed in cutting, not to injure the starting buds or crowns of plants. How few, comjiararively, of our farmers raise this most delicious vegetable, even for their own table.

These beingqnitcbaniy, may lie plant ed aa soon as tbe ground is ready to receive the seed. Sow in drills eighteen inches apart, cover ing tbe seed half an inch deep. Drop the seed turee or lour menes apart ami tliui out to six or eight inches, after they get started. More than oun plant will lie likely to coiue from what ap pears as one seed, which in reality is an envelope containing several seeds. The plants allowed to get little growth make excellent greens, and often are allowed to grow till likely to interfere before being pulled out for that purpose. Cabbaok. Early sorts will usually answer to transplant during the month. Seed may be sown of both early and late varieties iu the open gronnd. The varieties are numerous, some late sorts grow ing" enormous heads, others much smaller, more tender, and better flavored. All the mammoth kinds are more or less coarse, with large leaf stems and veins; tbe medium and smaller grow ing heads will be fonnd the best for eating, the mammoth fur market. Carrots. For our New England climate, May is early enough, and some think too early to sow carrots. A few radish seed sown witb the carrot will suable, one to distinguish tho rows much better, and the weeds can be better kept in sub jection without injury to the carrots; clean cul ture manes clean, goou crops. Corn. Plant asMxinasthcsoil is warm. A few bills may be started on soils, in the hot-bed, nnd set in the open ground, after late frosts are past. The Mexican and Trimble's are two good sorts as one could wish; the Mexican being a final I, eight rowed variety and the Trimble a good sized, twelve rowed sort, soft and rich when in its prime. The Mexican has small kernels, sweet, and excellent for eating from the cob, as tbe seed conies out clean and flee from hulls. Ct'CUMBEHS. About the middle of tbe month is soon enough to plant in the open ground, to es cape frost. According to the "w eat her w ise," w e diall have frosts the latter half of the month to injure vegetation. A few bills can be started on soda in the hot-beds to be transplanted the last of the mouth, and get a little advautageover those punted in tbe open ground. I ' LlCTrrcE.

If not already planted, plant ouion seed in rich .well-prepared Ix-ds. Set ont' tops, sets, and potato onions, as early in the month as possible. Early sown seed produces best results. Peas. Repeat planting of early sorts for suc cession, and put in late sorts of marrowfats, and the better suits. Pea brush should be put to the pea soon after they come np, as the' longer de ferred the less inclined tbe vines are to fake hold of them. Potatoes. Plant as soon as the gronnd is in readiness, as early' planted does the best, of late years; give them mineral instead of putrescent manure, on ground previously manured aud in good heart. Badisues. Sow seed in quick, warm soil; if in sects attack tbe plant, dust with ashes; light ap plications of gnano promote rapid growth. .Squash. These being of tropical origin, .will need to be treated as tender plants, similar to cu- enmbers, as above.

If the plants in the hot bed or cold frame are gettiug large, prick tbem from the hot-bed to the cold frames, or into pots; start the roots of those in cold frames to increase stockine, Ac. Keep the plant protected nights, but harden ofl days by giving them the opeii air, all reasonably pleas ant days. Arte England Farmer. ToJWash Siteep. As many of our readers have not yet washed their sheep, the following mode of washing, as stated hy.a correspondent of the Ohio CuUieator, may prove useful : "I take a h!fcbead. witb one head our. water tight, or a large meat tub, ami sink it in the stream where there is considerable current, and rlace a few rocks iu the Iwittom of the hogshead, take four stakes, with forks on oue end, and drive tbem down until the forks come over the top of the hogshead to secure it from coming up. After this is done I dip out the water, get into tbe hogshead, and have a man to hand tbe sheep to me, and can wash one hundred in a very short time, and be perfectly dry, except my arms." When to Pkcsk Graf-c Vkves. We are often asked if the grape vine cannot be pruned in spring without injury. We ay no. Tbe time to do tbis work is iu tbe fall, and if not done then it should be left nntil tbe next snmmer, af ter tbe vine has put forth its leaves, when it will not bleed at all if cut. We do not advise exces sive summer pruning, but if tbe work has been wholly neglected iu the auturau something may be done in the summer following. Grapevines, if cat or broken now. will bleed vrofnsclv. and though we do not fear such a result as much as we did once, still we prefer not to allow tbe op portunity. Grass Under Trees. By sowing nitrate of soda in small quantities in showery weather nn der trees, a most lieautifnl venture will be obtain ed. I have used it under beech trees in my grounds, and the grass always looks green. Hav ing succeeded so well on a small scale, I hav e now sown nitrate of soda amnug tbe long grass in tbe plantation's, which cattle conld never eat. I now find tbe herbage is preferred to the other parts of tbe field. .To Prevent Both in Horses. A person of much experience in veterinary acience is never troubled with this disease in bis hones.

The lice die immediately, and half an hour after, tbe chickens are as dry and nice as ever. Wire Worm. Take good sound seed, put it in a tnb or some other convenient vessel, take one and one-half pounds of saltpeter per bnsbel, dis solve it and pour it over the com, let it soak nnlil the corn is swelled ready to sprout, and then plant.

Should the "skull and iNMly-lsuies" which were found the other day in an excavation near Columbus, Ohio, prove to Ik-, as is now though!, remains of the extinct nice technically kuowu as "mound buildcrs'palfoulologi'-ts will' have great cause to be thankful, for np to the present time the skeletons of the said mound builders have oli stlliately refused to be exhumed ill useful form. As Mr. Baldwin, whose interesting book on "An cient America" is too little known, says: i'Tbe decayed bones of the mound builders are invari ably found within tbe mounds, never on the sur face, nsnally at tbe bottom of tbe structure, and nearly always in such a state of decay as to render all attempts to restore the skull, or indeed any part of the skeleton, entirely .hopeless. Not more than one or two skeletons of tbat people have been recovered in a condition suitable for exam ination." Messrs. Squier and Davis assert that the only skull belonging incontestably to an in diidnalof the mound builder race which has leen preserved entire, was taken from a mound four miles below Chillicotbe. There is mncb reason, therefore, to donbt the authenticity of this "skull aud Ixsly Iwnes," though until examination has revealed their true characters there is no reason to dogmatizw upon their linn-genuineness. The importance of "the liud" can hardly lie exaggerated if it turns ont to lie true remains of the ancient civilized people of tile-Mississippi valley. That such a people exist ed there is now no doubt. Tbat the red skins of the past or present have no genetic relations to them is ae undoubted. The linns and Gothswbo over ran Italy in the lifih centnry hail fewer points of ethnic character in common with the Romans of tbe Twelve tables and the military republic than the Indians of the sixteenth centnry with the mound builders. From all we know of these people, whose name has perished wholly from amongmen,tbeywcreconfiuedin habitat. asfaras our country is concerned, to the fertile regions of the Mississippi valley. "This ancient race," sa. s Baldwin,- epitomizing tbe results of American arch-eological researches, "seems to have occu pied nearly the whole basin of tbe Mississippi and its tributaries, with the fertile plains along tbe gulf. Their settlements were continued across the Rio Grande into Mexico. Toward their east ern, northern and western limit, the population was evidently smaller and their occupation of tho territory less complete than in the valley of tbe Ohio, and from that point down tn the gulf." This people were civilized. They worked the mines on Lake Superior more extensively though not more deeply than we have done. They must have been acquainted with geotnetiy, for the an gles on their mounds are true right angles; their circles are true circles. Mathematical instrn nients wonld be required to make them as correct as we find them. Their pottery wan elegantly designed. They nsed bracelets and other orna ments. Albert Gallatin thought them an "emi nently agricultural" people. Many of their chis els, axes, hammers, adzes, &c-, were elslwrately finished. It has been snggested, in view of no graves of the monnd-bnilders being fonnd in the milling regions, tbat the' miners had possibly had better means of river intercommunication than tbe "canoe." From onr present knowledge, the hypothesis with most versimilitnde is that these people came from the south that in' fact they are identified withthecivilizedracesof Mexico and Pern. If it should prove true that Pern, aa M. Lopez in a lately published book claims, was civilized by an Aryan race, whose language ia -a philological "missing link," the pressnt people of the United States will turn ont not to have been the first Aryans wba have been extensive settlers of this continent. Let ns hope that American archaeol ogy will not be much longer neglected, as tbe an tiquities of no portion of tbe globe promise so. rich a harvest to tbe earnest gleaner. Xnc York JTorld. . ''- r- r ' Twotkacbe. The New Brunswick Timet says: A citizen of New Bruuswick who had been afflicted with a iiaiuful toothache for a long time, concluded at engtb to have the tooth pnlied. It had decayed somewhat, and a very small hole was visilde at one point. Tbis was extremely minute, and noth ing less than a very sharp vision could plainlv discern it. He called at a dentist's office, and bad the tooth extracted, rolled it in a sheet of note paper and tool- it bomewith him- The pain had been so intense and protracted that he con cluded to examiue very tbomngfaly the tooth which had annoyed him so much. A very care ful inspection of it revealed nothing strange or Iieenliax. It was apparently sound at every point mt one, ami so minute was tbe perforation tbat it wonld not admit the insertion of a delicate needle. He finally took a hammer, strnck lightly with it, and the tooth was broken. Bnt what a sight! It was perfectly hollow, and sungly en sconced wilhin it was a nondescript not much largrr than an ordinary ant. Upon exposure to the light it took to its legs six in nnmWr and ran across the table witb great speed. It seemed to have no eyes, for it ran against every object that he placed befora.it. At length it ran off the table, falling to the carpet, and in trying to re cover it he accidentally stepped upon it and kill ed it. He describes it as being a most wouderfnl looking object, and differing essentially from any thing he had ever before seen or beard of. He is confident tbat it conld not have made its way into tbe tooth, and feels snre that it was gener ated iu the decaviug dentine salswance. He pre sumes that small atoms of food rosy have made thir way.Jhrongh the preforation and served to furnish snstenance to the qneer looking object. He feels the ntmost certainty that this is an in dubitable instance of spontaneous generation. Western women think that people are grow in over-fussy now-a-days.

During tbe first half of the last year eight hundred persons iu Xew York were attacked hv. a singular form of disease, and of the numlier aix hundred died. Physicians call this disorder cerebru-spiual meuiugitis, which being interpret ed means an indaniniatiuu of the membranes en veloping tbe brain and spinal cord. Throughout tbe Northwestern States it is popnlarly kuowu as spotted-fever, in the Sonth as the cold plague, iu Europe by various technical and local name, aud iu all countries as ode of tbe most deadly af foctious to which mankind is subject. It fre quently, as in ths present instance, appears in tbe form of an epidemic, aud its history is, tbat these visitations are liable to recur after longer or shorter intervals. Like epidemic diseases in gen eral, it is no donbt largely preventable, and the wonder is tbat witb tbe extraordinary fatality which has always attended it, there has never been any uuited publje demand focthe investiga tion of its causes, or the means of staying its spread. But in spite of tbe astonishing indiffer ence on tbe part of those who are most directly interested, physicians have obtained some impor tant fact which link the origiu of tbe difficulty with overcrowded bouses and the prevalence of tilth, conditions which at all times are to com mon in cities and towns, but which, with stupid blindness to his own best interests, man is forever tolerating. The evidence tbat cases of this dis ease originate, partly at least, through the opera tion of causes that lie within our reach, though not as full as conld be wished, is still very con vincing. Galajf. Cs-rlos-s Fact. By a simple exiieritneiit, it is easy to discover to what animal -any kind of blood or siots of blood belong. The process is as follows : Put a few drops of blo-sl, or the serum of blood, into a glass; add concentrated sulphuric acid, to the amount of one-third or one-half tbe quantity of blood, and stir the whole together witb a glass rod ; by this means the odoriferous principle pe culiar to the species of animal to which ths blood tielonged, is evolved ; thus, for instance, the blood of msn discbarges a strong odor uf the Krspiratinii of man, which it is impossible to con found with any other; tbat of a woman a similar odor, bnt much weaker; tbat of a sheep the well known smell of greasy wool ; of a pig, the disa greeable odor of a piggery ; aud so on. Even the blood of a frog has given ont the pernliar smell of marshy reeds, and that of a carp the peculiar smell of a fresh water fish. Upon trials made to ascertain whether spots of blood could be distin guished and referred to their source, it was fonnd that to a certain extent a pretty snre judgment can lie given even after fifteen dajs. The spot ted linen is to be cut ont. put into a watch glass, and, being moistened with a little water, left for a short time at rest, aud well soaked; a little sulphuric acid is to be added and stirred about with a glass rod, the peculiar odor will then be recognized ; bnt tbis experiment should be per formed without delay, for after a fortnight the odor is scarcely perceptible. Wash for the Sick Boass. The following recipe makes a ilelicionsly re freshing wash in the sick room, and cools the aching head: Take of rosemary, wormwood, rne, lavender, sage or mint, a large handful of each. Place in a stone jar, and turn over it one gallon of strong cider vinegar, cover closely, and keep near the fire for four days, then strain, and add one ounce of powdered camphor gum. Bottle and keep tightly corked. There is a French legend con nected witb this preperation. During tbe plague at Marseilles, a band of rob bers plundered the dying and tbe dead without injury to themselves. They were imprisoned, tried, and condemned to die, hut were pardoned on condition of disclosing the secret whereby tbey could ransack houses infected with the ter rible scourge.

The following in genious method for destroying these pests to tbe fanner is given by S. Webb, Esq., of Waldo roitn tv, Maine, in a late numlier of the Belfast J!epb liean: "Erect a pole twelve or fifteen feet high in a place w here there will not lie jiny thing else for them to light uon,and set npou it a common fox trap, en which they will alight. A strong rat trap will answer the pnrpose by tying it to the pole lengthwise, with the jaws raised above tbe end, tbe pole being a little leaning, so tbat the jaws will not fall together. When one hawk is taken, tie it on tbe ground near the pole, and its mate will be in the trap in a short time. The season is near for the hawks to reappear, and if farmers do not wish to bav their chickens destroyed by them, they will have to adopt this method of putting a stop to the depredations."

When tbey reached the honse, he administered red pepper tea mixed with spirits, which he continued to give him, so that in 84 hours, ho had nsed two or three quarts of spirits, which did not intoxi cate him in tbe least. Although his leg was swelled somewhat tbe next day, aud felt sore, yet the'man became well in a few days the spirits counteracting the poison. The drinking of spirits, very freely, in cases of beiug bitten by snakes, bad before been tried, and proved effectual and what ia singnlar too, that however freely admin istrated ia such cases, the individual never be comes intoxicated.
