The appended negro story t copied from a Sonthern correspon dent of the Boston Journal, ia worth reading : "Gen.

Then H if seized with a bright idea, he extend ed his hand with a genuine Southern how do'oe do, uncle ? The ape clasped the negro's hand and shook it long and cordially. "Sawney then plied his new acquaint ance with interrogations as to his name, age, nativity and former occupations, but eliciting no replies beyond a knowing shake of the head, or a merry twinkling of the eye, (the ape was probably medi tating the best way of tweaking our friend's nose, ) he concluded the ap was bound to keep non-committal, and look ing cantiously around, chuckled out, "He, he, ye too sharp for em, old feller. "Keep dark if ye'd jist speak one word of English, white man would have a hoe in yer hand in less dan two minutes." Taktso a Clergyman at his Word. A certain preacher of Universalism had been preaching in a country school-house for several successive Sabbaths, to con vince the people there was no hell. At length it was announced that at his next meeting a collection wonld be taken for his benefit. The day arrived, and the collection was taken up in a hat When the "deacon" bad pawed through the congregation, and given all the an op portunity to contribute, he returned to the desk and gravely emptied the con tents of the hat upon the desk before the preacher. And such a "collection I" A few coppers, with old buttons, pieces of tin, broken jewsharps, horse nails, and almost every other worthless thing that a man could carry to church in his pock et 1 The preacher was thunderstruck ; but, recovering his Eelf-possession in a moment, and gazing npon the "collec tion" before him, exclaimed, Well, I am not so certain whether there is a hell or not, but I am certain there ought to be cut for such follows as you are ;" and taking his hat left the house. Dogs akd Dixiso-Booms. Many ill bred persons are in the habit of calling waiters at a hotel by a whistle as a man calls his dog. . One of this class, a very pompous person sitting at the breakfast table of one of our principal hotels, a few mornings ago, looked at his empty coffee-cnp, and then at one of the boys, and whistled. The boy looked at him quietly . Presently ha whistled again ; the boy did not move, and the man was Inst preparing to hurl a malediction at lim, when the head of the table depart ment stepped up to him and remarked, "It is of no use to whistle any longer, sir, dogs are not allowed in the dining room." The rebuke told npon the whole company at the table. Chicago Preu. ; Orsamkstal' Jcdobs. Q was elected "side Judge" in one of the county courts in Vermont. He was not very well versed "in legal lore," so he called on a friend of his who had served as side judge to make some inquiries concerning the duties of the office. To his interro- f stories his answer was : 'Sir, I have lied this important and honorable office several years, but hive never been con sulted with regard to but one question. On the last day of the spring term, 184 , the judge, after listening to three or four windy pleas of an hour's length each, turned to me and whispered, "C . ain!t this seat made out of rather hard wood ?" and I told him I rather thought it was." " A Radical Fish. An "old salt" once related to ns the manner in which, ac cording to his observation, the sword fish attacks the whale. The sword fish after swimming for tiraa udsr the whale, and occasionally tickling his old enemy with the point of his spear, dives far down into the depth of the sea and coming up with great velocity, thrusts his sword into the belly of the whale. The old fogy grunts and blows, and lash es the water but cannot escape his more active foe. We should suppose that such a practice would be likely to bring on a chronic ejection of the boxedt. " A Wisa Asswer. "Yon must not play with that little girl, my dear, " said an injudicious parent "But ma, I like her ; she is a good li'rila nr1. and I'm sure she dresses as prettily as ever I do ; and she has lots of toys." "I cannot help that, my -dear," res--ponded the foolish anti-American, "her father is a shoemaker." "But I don't play with her father, I play with her, she isn't a shoemaker." A boy with ragged trousers and rim less chip hat, runs into Dr, Fuller's drug store, with a dipper in his hand, "Doc tor, mother sent me down to the shotica ry pop qnicke'n blazes, cos bub's sick as the dickens with the picken chox, and the wants a thimble full of polly gollic in this din tipper, coz we hadn't bot a gottle .and the kiat pup's got the bine witters in it Got any ?

Feed your Plants. Philosophers have speculated for ages as to what constitutes the food for plants. Without recapitulating the various theo ries which have had their day, npon this point every farmer can readily respond to the question, from personal knowledge, that it is manure vegetable and animal matters which constitute the true food of farm crops. Minerals, fossils and earthy substances may ameliorate the soil and increase its capacities for the healthy development and maturity of plants, or msy impart wholesome stimuli to their organs, but vegetable and animal sub stances, after all, constitute mainly the tood or plants. Urops are always good on well prepared ground where these, in a soluble state are known to abound ; and they are always defective, or prove a fail ure, where these are wanting. Farmers should hence regard manure as a part of their capital as money which re quires but to be properly employed to return them compound interest They should husband it as they would their cents or shillings, which they mean to increase to dollars. They should econo mise every animal and vegetable sub stance upon the farm, and when it has subserved other useful purposes, apply it ny mixiDg it property wiin me sou, to the increase of the coming harvest put it to interest, that it may return the own er its percentage of profit, in grain, roots and forage, and ultimately in the increase of meat, and in the product of the fleece and the dairy, bvery load of manure, well applied to the farm, will increase its products to the value of one dollar. Ihe farmer, therefore, who wastes a load of manure, is as reckless and improvi dent as he who throws away a bushel of corn. Aot only what is denominated dung, as the contents of the cattle and hog-yards and the clearings of the stables the amonnt of which .may be greatly increased by stocks, weeds, vines and other vegetable matters may be trans formed into farm produce, but the rich earth of swamps, ditches and ponds, the leaves of the, forest, urine, soap-suds, tc, are all convertible to like use. He that will not feed his crops with manure, should not complain if his crops fail to feed him with bread. Instructions for Saviho Garden Seed. When the seed are ripe, gather them without delay ; otherwise the pods will split open and their contents be scattered upon the ground. Do not gather indiscriminately, but take only the finest-looking heads. By this selec tion of the best plants and the best seeds, good varieties may be even improved, and they certainly will not deteriorate. In this way many of our choice vegeta bles have been obtained. The practical stock breeder's motto is that "like pro duces like," and ha breeds from those animals onlyVhioh possess the points he wishes perpetuated. 1 hns, if you select the earliest peas from the earliest vines, for a number of seasons, you can obtain a variety ripening several days earlier than that with which yon commenced. It has been done once and may be done again. Place the seed vessels, as soon as gath ered, upon a cloth in the shade, so that they may become perfectly dry, at which time thresh out the seed by means of a 8m all stick. Winnow out the chaff and small or defective seed, and put the re mainder in drawers or small bags. Every kind should be labeled with its name and the year when raised in this manner: "Early Salmon Radish, 1856." This will prevent all possibility of the inexperienced cultivator mistaking beet or cabbage seed, or sowing that which by the lapse of time has lost its powers of germination. Keep these drawers or bags in a cool, dry apartment, where no injury may be apprehe.nded from mois ture or the attacks of mice. Summary or Roles for Butter Mak tsa. "The chief points besides clsanli ness," says an experienced writer, "in making good butter, are these : To mi lk at regular hours ; to place the milk in shallow vessels ; to have a perfectly clean cellar, with a hard brick or flag stone bottom, and with shutters and wire screen windows, to admit air and exclude in sects : to 6kim the milk the moment it coagulates or "lobbers," which will be in thirty to forty-eight hours ; to churn the cream at a temperature between sixty and sixty-five degrees in hot weather fifty-five to sixty degrees is better by the thermometer ; to tree the butter as much as possible from butter milk, and then add a sixteenth part of the purest salt ; to work out the remaining butter milk in twelve hours afterward, and again in twentv-four hours, being careful not to work it too much at a time ; to fack it closely in stone jars till nearly full, and then spread a clean, white mublio cloth over the top ; pack closely a layer of one inch of fine salt upon the muslin; and, finally, cover the jar with a neatly fitting tin cover, ibis is, substantially, the process of most of the best butter makers. Butter thus made will keep a year, if placed on the bottom of a cool cellar." Take Care or Your Cattle. The ox-house ehonld be opened before day light and well cleansed, both by pail and broom, from every impurity. After the animals have been satisfied with food, whatever may remain should be instantly mmnvwT and the criba and manners should be swept out and washed, if necessary ; t.A.n1y1 wltAwn Visa mnan wrif VtAnt 1imi WMU3I IUUUIU UICU v fi w ituvua tiiui- tation. If their hides be then whisped, it visibly occasions a very pleasurable sensation; as they begin to fatten, the ancient coat falls off, and if this be accel erated by the currycomb, the better ap pearance of the beast will well repay the trouble. To Destroy Thistles. The follow ing, which the Bomettead gives under the head of "Finality on Canada This tles and White Daisies," is apparently worth trying, and may prevent further damage from a truly growing evil : A friend informs ns on the authority of Millard Day, Esq., of Brooklyn, that these nuisances may be destroyed by once mowing, if done during a team rain. Mr. Day has satisfied himself of this by repeated successful experiments. The principle of its action, no doubt lies in the decay of tha roots consequent npon the filling of the hollow stems ith water." GREAT SMjE OF' LOTS Ii CIIAKLESTOWij Doniphan County, E. T.

Annexed we rive Dirwctioiu for their use ia the complaints which they have been found to cure. Foa CorrrvsHxss. Take one or twe Pills, or such quantity as to gently more the bowels. Cos tiveness is frequently the aggravating cause of Pu ss, and the cure of one complaint is the care of both. No person caa feel well while under a costive habit of body.

The eruptions will gener- dreadful ulcers snd sons have beea healed ap by the purging and purifying effect of these Pills, snd some disgusting diseases which seemed to saturate the1 whole system have completely yielded to their influence, leaving the sufferer in perfect health. Patients! your duty to society forbids that yoa should parade yourself around tha world eovend with pimples, blotches, ulcers, sores, snd all or any of the unclean diseases of the skin, because your system wants cleansing. . To Prarrr ths Blood, they are the best meb cine ever discovered. They should be taken freely and frequently, and the impurities which sow the seeds of incurable diseases will be swept out of the S stern like chaff before the wind. By this property ey do as much good ia preventing sickness ss by the remarkable cures which they are making every where. Livaa Complaint, Jatnmica, anal all Biliaui Affection, arise from some derangement either torpidity, congestion, or obstructions of the Liver. Torpidity and congestion vitiate the bile snd render it unfit for digestion. This is disastrous to the health, and the constitution is frequentlv under mined by no other cause. Indigestion is tne symp tom. Obstruction of the duet which empties the bile into the stomach causes the bile to overflow into the blood. This produces Jaundice, with a long and dangerous train of evils. Costiveness, or alternately costiveness and diarrhea, prevails. Feverish symptoms, languor, low spirits, weariness, restlessness, and melancho!, with sometimes in ability to sleep, and soma times great drowsiness ; sometimes there is severe pain in the side ; the skin and the white of the eyes become s greenish yellow ; the stomach acid ; the bowels sore to ths touch ; the whole system irritable, with a tendency to fever, which may turn to bilious fever, bilious eolie, bilious disrrhora, dysentery, ftc A medium dose of three or four Pills taken at night, followed by two or three in the morning, and repeated a few days, will remove the cause of all these troubles. It is wicked to suffer such pains when you can cure them for 15 cents. Rhscmattsm, Gout, and all Inflammatory Fe ver,, are rapidly cured by the purifying effects of these Pills upon the blood and the stimulns which thev afford to the vital principal of Life. For these and all kindred complaints tney should be taken ia mild doses to move the bowels geatly, but freely.. As a Dis.isa Pill, this is both sgrersble and useful. No Pill can be made more plsaiirt to take, and certainly none has been made more effectiral to the purpose for which a dinner pill is employed. PREPARED BV DR. J. C.
