" eeate free !" , ; So Sugar from Chinese CaaeT ; We are becoming tired of the intermin able Sorgho speculation, and are begining to think that the plant will not amount to much after all the fuss that has been made about it. In a recent conversation with an eminent sugar refiner in this city. he gave it as his opinion that dry Sugar cannot, nndar any circumstances, be ob tained from the China cane, more especi ally if it be raised in a northern climate. Thin confirms the opinion of Dr. Hayes, published in No. 52, VoL XII, of the Scientific American. As a ceneral thin?. W C' ! the plant will not mature, or, in other words, it will not ripen so as to perfect the changes which the sap must necessar ily go through in order to make sugar. ' The presence of n sweet taste does not necessarily indicate 6ugar. . Honey, by ! the curious practical chemistry of the bee. can be made from starch, potatoes, old ragt, dec, in fact, by the action of acids, any substance that has starch in its com position can be made to yield a sweet, but such a sweet will not granulate; and no doubt we shall continue to bear fre quent complaints that the Chinese cane will produce nothing except a syrup. i Sugar is an active principle, just as ' morphine, quinine, &c, are active prin ! ciplcs of opium and Peruvian bark; and as the juice of tho poppy will not yield. . morphine unless well ripened, so also the ! common cane will not yield sugar nnlesa j it is thoroughly ripe. The common New j Orleans sugar does not yield as much J dry sugar as the Cuban, by reason of the i fact that the former is more frequently jmado of green cane. The process of making New Orleans sugar is the same as all others, namely, by simple crystali- ZAtian. and tha mora ulnwlv it is rarriad on, the greater is the resulting product. Scientific American. . - Earn and Beef. -As this is the season for preparing these family comforts, wo will give the result of our own erperienct in tho matter. We have read a number- of receipts on the subject, some of Uiera rather complex, aud attended with some trouble. We have tried them aud found them to effect the same object with far less trouble. , To prepare our hams and beef for smoking, we first pack them into a cask, and then pour over them apicklo, suffic ient to cover them, made in the following manner. For each gallon, we use salt petre oz,.salaratus oz, good molasses 1 pint, or brown sugar 1 lb arid good Turks Island, or rock salt, sufficient to make it bear tip an egg, endwise. The sugar or molasses, may be increased, add libitum. The whole must be boiled, and well skimmed, when just at the boiliug point, and poured over the meat when cold. We have recently seen directions for pouring the pickle on hot; but we have not tried it. The moat may remain in this pickle until yon are ready to smoke it in the spring, without injury.' ' Follow these simple directions, and you will have as good hams ' 3 you can have by the most elaborate process. Beef, if free from llood, rnay be packed wjth 'fhe hams, without injury to either. i.' V . Sum.Tarjvi roa Sroc Many farm ers till iwglect their animals In Winter, f eeding them fim tho stack-yinl, in the open srM .This practice is not only bar barou?, but very expensive. It takes a third mora of. hay to carry a cow through tho winter by this method, and with the lest of hay she will not come out in good conuiuou. t arm siauio are a eudsh tute for fodder, and an animal sheltered in them is much more easily kept in high fieshr Then, by stabling animals, we csn save all the manure, which is quite too large an item for farmers in this age Ad throw away. Many who have large farms, and do not wish to build a barn Lrg .enough to hold all the hay and grain, build several small barns in differ ent meadows. These save the carting of both hay and of manures. Jn no case should hay be foddered out to cattle without some kind of shelter. A hovel opening to the south can be made very cheaply, and with light walls and thatch ed roof, it will keep cattle quite comfort able. : They will save the cost of building ia a single winter- Now is the time to put them up. .

The army of India, the transport fleet for that army and its supplies, tho necessities growing out of the disturbed state of that great English dependency, will call for much of our surplus beef, pork and flour. The two last named articles are the pro duct of every year, but beef requires years of nourishment before it is ready for nse, The wicked wanton waste of breeding power which ia the besettinz sin of American farmers, ought to be checked.

Lime and lard. Bays a correspondent of the Maine Farmer, aro the bet application to old sores of any kind I know, especially if the bone is any' affected. Take good &tyne lime, slake dry, and sift through a fine seive. Put the flour in a bottle, cork tight, and keep it in a dark place, from light and air, and it will keep good for years. Take one part of lime to three parte , of lard, in bulk,, and mix tbem well, cold, and apply a proper quantity to the sore twice a day, and cleanse well each time with soepsud. If the sore descends below the outward opening, it most be opened to tbe bottom or it will not heal sound. If the bone be' affected, the sore probably will not'. heal, and ought not to, till the hone shall be healed. Sores healed nnder this treatment always heal sound.

'' A correspondent of the Notea and QneHes, says the only words nsed in En glish for the first day of tha week, before the exi&Unce of Puritanism, were Sunday and Lord's Day. The former of those expressions, waa used by our Saxon an cestors with all other Teutonie nations. The latter was adopted from the Christian form of Southern Europe. - Saturday, in Italian, still retains the Hebrew name of 8abato. The word for 8nnday in Russian means resurrrection, "identifying the day, as the southern nations do, though more significantly? with the great triumph of Christian faith." D'Israeli, in his Commentaries on the Lifeof Charles I, fixed the reiga of JMw V bth and the vear 1500 as tbe 1 when Sunday was called Saturday Sabbiti.) He says: ' It was in the reign of Elizabeth, during the unsettled state of the National relig ion that a aect arose among those reform ers cf tbe reformed who were known by the name of Sabbatarians. ; Also that O John Knox, the great reformer of Scot land, was the true father of this new doc trine in England, though Knox waa tne bosom friend of Calvin. (Vol. ii, e. 16, p. 353.). . Calvin was opposed, as were indeed Luther and the ether great reformers of that day, to Knox's views of 8unday; Knox himself was behind some of the present day Professors, if a tradition at Geneva is true. ' That when John Knox visited Calvin on a Sunday he found his austere coadju tor bowling on a green. At this day, and in that place, continnes D'Israeli, a Calvanist preacher after his Sunday Ser mon will take his place at a card-table. This question is so much involved with the death of Charles. I, and the rise of the commonwealth, that D'Israeli has treated it very largely in the 15th' and 16th chapters of his second volume, and with great erudition, judgment and taste, Sotton Trant. . . .. r A Trout Fish Liviho is a Well Twestt-1' ive Years. air. t . Hoyt. a correspondent of the Country Gentleman, writing from South-East, New York, November 19th, says: - "Can any one tell how long a trout fish' will live? Twenty-five years tbe post summer Fcame on the farm where I now am. Almost the first work that I did after getting in my spring crops, was to drain a bog swamp, the outlet of which leads into the Uroton nvei. i nad an old Scotchman to do the ditching. Ode day he broucht up a trout fish about the size of a man's little finger, in his whiskey incr. ( by the by we nsed a little on tlw farm then.) ' I put it in the well near the house, and it is there now, grown to. a goodly size say about a foot long, and lanre in proportion. It has been fed bnt very little; once in a while some one throws in a grasshopper, or cricket, to see him ?atch it. The well is thirty feet deep, and water hard, and .-.settles down noai ly to the bottom, and then again ris es to near the top. lie has been taken Out a few times to clean the well, bnt not tor the last five years.

The great splash some people make in the exercise of their art is useless, and is moreover, deleterious. When the water is permitted to run down in large quantities over the glass, it dis solves the putty, and soon-loosens the panes from their setting, and also stains the glass. 1 wo pieces ofwun leatner, and a bowl of suds are all that are ne cessary.

AFTER the month of June, the undersigned will give kis attention to business general ly in the Court Claims, and in the other darts held in the District of Columbia also, to mat ters pending in Congrttt and in the several De partment t, in which claimants may require coun sel. He will not be prepared before the 1st of July to enter into correspondence on such busi ness, as his time will be wholly engrossed nntil July in closing up his affairs connected with the Amrricmn Orgmm. The undersigned, haTin? obtained, during the twenty odd years whish he devoted mainly to Revolutionary Claims, at Washington, a large amount of facts and proofs connected with the services of officers of the Revolution, and hav ing a complete litt of all those Continental Offi cers who were promised half-pay by the several resolves of Congress, and of tliooe also whose widows and children were entitled to ' seven years' half pay " under the resolve of 24th. Au gust, IibO, wiil be prepared to prosecute such claims, if the Ml rrported to pay such claims, I hitherto favorably acted upon in both Houses of Congress, at different times, shall become a law and of this but little doubt is entertained. The undersigned will also give his especial attention to those Virginia Bounty Land Claims and Virginia kalf pay Claims, which remain un adjusted, and also to any and all other classes of demands upon the Government, which may be of sufficient magnitude to afford a reasonable compensation. : Prompt attention will be given to the collec tion of individual debts, and to all professional business in the Courts of the District. The undersigned will be prepared by the 1st of July, to furnish Circulars to all correspond ents, giving them such information as they may require before engaging his services, and which Circulars will save much time and labor in cor respondence. They will be sent to all who may deire them. : - H will also be prepared to furnish to lliose i uo msJr rel,'lr" uieI (anu lor a reasonable , compensation) iuu ana complete us oi me uy J" . V I c"e8,?re 'mhrf.r.Mi in th hi 1.4 whifh h-ive hern iWMuiin iu Congress for the Ut two or thr.-e years, anii on which, a-J biTure sViteJ, f.ivorolik' aciioa has been bad in each House at differettt scssious of Congress. . Deirons of placing within the reach of all the descendants of Revolutionary OJficm the means of ascertiining rnhrr r not the names of their ancistor3 are found upon the authentic rolls of the Army, among those embrsred In the bills referred to, the undersigned will furnish fmr pub lication, to all publishers of newspapers who will give this advertisement Arte insertions m their papers reectively (and send a eopv thereof to him) full of the tfficm mfmoaii for duthir teen original Statu. The publication of these lists will effectual!' remove one main objection to the proposed bill which has been raised by some members of Congress, to-wit: that these claims were knoum onlm to mgtnti, who would charge exorbitant eommijsiona for the persecu tion and recovery of thalf, leaving bat little to the claimants If claimants, with a full knowledge of their rights, think proper to give one-kalf, or any other portion of their claims to their attorneys, the government has no right to complain. If mem bers of Congreos, instead of fulminating their wrath against mgtnto, would procure the publica tion of the lists of claims embraced in every law they -enact, (so far as the records of the gov ernment furnish the names of parties entitled,) they would render a Cir more valuable service to their constituents, than by opposing law to pay Jtt?t claims on the pretext that agents will receive largi fees for their services. It Is not, however, the purpose of the under signed to interfere, in. any manner, with mem bers of Congrfetg, la the discharge of their tin tiro, nor with agents in the recovery of their whether high or low. The publica tion of the Uttt in the newspapers, is, ia his judgment, a simple act of justice to claimants and it is bat just to himself, and cannot possibly be complained of by others when he-atatea, that for the prosecution and reeovery of tbe claims of QSicorm of tha Continnlml Army, - whose names are en the lists referred to, his commis sions will oniifhnly beoeser tent, on the amount recovered. His commissions in other ease will be a matter of special contract. To save all unnecessary correspondence, the undersigned states, that ha caaaot attend to claims of ooldiert for pensions nnder tha act of lcjii, nor can he max. investigations into any pension cases M imtptndal " by the Pension Of fice, without the pre payment of a fee. Tha ca ses of widows, under the act of 3d of February, 1853, who are entitled to arrears from 1843, will be prosecuted in the Court of Claims for com mission of ten per cent on the arrears. Letters making inquiries about claims of va rious descriptions, cannot be answered, unless a fee accompanies the application. The (taie re quired to examine cases, and the necessary ex pense of correspondence, in time, postages, tc, Ac, forbid such examinations, without www com- Bensation therefor. - rersnns wbo may wish to know on what ferns generally, the undersigned will Investigate and prosecute claims, may learn, by addressing hha a letter enclosing a postage stamp and asking for hil "Ctrcaiar ta crrrrnoairar.."
