Numerous farmers are strongly im pressed with the idea that lands are in jured by lying bare through the winter, ami tnat a good covering ol snow is a fore runner of a fruitful season. It in probable that this impression or notion has its foundation ia long experience; though it ia not obvious to all that snow is of much service before it melts, nnless it ia wanted in the highways to save the nse of wheels. We may be permitted therefore to speculate and theorize a little on this subject without (ear of being opposed by any known facta or conclusive experi-, mcnts. ' ' Snows in ' the months of April i and May are called the poor man's ma- j nure. They fall gently on the earth com-1 pared with showers of rain, and they are 1 not in such haste to run away into hol lows and gnttera- as rain from a sudden thundercloud. - Here we may conclude without a great I stretch of imagination that snows are bet-! I ter than rains. For showers of rain beat ! the ploughed ground down and leave it ; I hpftw. and then hlKtpn intA cnitiArn urn i leave the high knolls without enough to j slake their thirst; we have now two ar- guments for snow in preference to rain. . . A third argument ia that . as we shall probably have much rain in winter when there is but little snow, and rain too on igronnd'that la toot much frozen on the ; Bunace ju uio uiutj 01 us coming, tue sou is washing down from the highlands into : valleys and into streams, where it is often useless to the owner, and the Iors of which ! is a serious detriment to his farm. I . When the ground is covered with deep j snows, in winter, all the rich particles of the larra remain as they were before win ter; ana on the melting ol the snow in spring, the earth becomes saturated with sufficient water, though none may fall from the clouds. It is often suggested by - farmers that the soil is injured by hard freezing, and that this is the reason for wishing it to be covered with snow, as snow is known to protect it ajil to prevent its being j But we cann9t assent to this theory; we ! have never seen any evidence to prove that sou whicn escapes freezing is better than soil that has been frozen deep throngh the winter. On the contrary, we incline to think that hard freezing is quite useful to grass fields, if to no others. All know that grass fields need to be stirred up once in a few years or they become tight bound and yield but half a crop. In the opera lions of freezing anl thawing everr par tirlf mv tirt fttinnnan.l in Kn InrtotnnJ tin A I to change position, inns we see . the grass more ready to 6tart in lue spring oi the year than in the fall, when the tcm pcrature is the sime, a snbterancan hor rowing has taken place and new life is imparted by a change of the particles. Auose-oionr readers wno are better pleased with facts than with theories are j invited to inquire whether lands that are annually frozen are not better foi grass than lands that never fcel the winter frost whether the New England -States do not produce more hay, acre for acre, than the Carolinas and other countries" as warm as thry. s , x - , . Hay has 'been sliipped the last year lrom Maine to .Mexico a om IS.ingor to Vera Cruz. And it .is annually carried from our most northern States to those farther south; The great Mississippi cannot bear onongh on her waters to sup ply New Orleans, and States that have the longest winters and.nued the most hay, have to furnish that article annually to southern cities. ,; Thus wtf may see how Providence takes care of all. Cold weather and frost are made use of to render more pro ductive those climes that have most need of great supplies of fodder through our long winters. These in addition to the hardiness which labor imparts, enables us to spare of our abundance to those who would seem to need nothing of this kind from oar store. Mast. Ploughman. To Secdrk FariT Trees from Frost The following simple and easy method of securing fruit trees from the effects of frost, we have seen highly recommended. Take a thick rope and entwine it among the branches of a fruit tree in blossom, the end of which should be directed down ward, so as to tonuinate in a pale of wat er placed at the foot of tho tree; shonld a slight frost take place during the night. it will not . in the smallest degree affect the tree, while the' surface of the pail which receives the rope will be covered with a thick ice; thongh water placed in another pail by the side of it, by way of experiment, may not. from the slight- ness of the frost, have any ice on it at all. In this case tho rope aids the evapora tion of the water and thereby cools it down to tue freezing point. Frost is merely the effect of cold, which, itself, is a negative quality; namely, the absence of heat As evaporation carries off beat and reunces temperature, whatever, aids this is favorable to freezing. ., . ',' j . Early hoar frost may, it is- said.' be rendered harmless in its effect by pouring fresh spring water on the trees and vines thus convered, before the son rises. 1 -' - Whatever prevents the formation of dew will protect plants; hence a covering of net or thin gauze will often preserve the blossoms of wall fruit. But the most effectual means is to check the radiation, by screening the plant from the chilling aspect of the clear sky. Taxing Horses. The taming of hor ses by breathing in their nostrils, seems to be gaming friends. Mr. David Clay ton, of Tyrrell county, having seen an article in onr paper stating that horses had been rendered gentle by breathing in their nostrils, determined to try it on a yonng mule belonging to him, who would suffer no one to handle him. Mr. C. fast ened him in the stable and, after consid erable trouble succeeded in breathing sev eral times in his nostrils. Before he left the stable, the mnlebecame gentle, and would stand and permit himself to be rubbed, and would none and 6rae!I around him. He followed Sir. C. out of the stable, around the yard, and wanted to go into the house. We advise onr friends who have colts to break to try tho exper iment; if it does no good,' it can certainly do no harm. Xctcbrr X, C. Adeocate. Medical Opathiea. The progression in medical discoveries, keeps pace with the spirit of the ago, We now have Jlomeopatiy, Allopathy, Hy dropathy, and hopathy. ' ' Tlie first opatly, is a system for curing the diseases which flesh is heir to, by ad ministering infinitessimal doees calcu lated to operate minly, we judge, upon the imagination. ' " The second opathy is the old futfuorud system or curing diseases. : ? :. . .' The third opathy, is the told neater, "packincr" system. The fourth opalhu. is a new mode of expelling disease from the bo Jy corpo real. 4t is done by applying to the "kk part," the corresponding part of an ani mal recently slaughtered. For a diseased eye, a calf's or sheep's eye' might be ap plied for a tick heart, a speedy cure can be efTcted by applying to the cardiac region, the heart of an ox for a diseased liver, the hepatic region should come in contact with the liver of a hog, and so on ad infinitum. ' . Great cures, it is recorded, have been effected by enveloping sick persons in the hot skins of an animal just slaved, but this mole was never distinguished by any particular opathy. Hydrogen Gas. - ater u a compound or two bodies which exist naturally in the state of gas; the one is hydrogen and the otner oxygen If we introduce into a bottle one ounce of clean iron filings and pour npon them a mixture of sulphuric acid, in a proportion of one of acid to six of water cautiously, hydrogen gas .will be evolved in great quantities. explanation. 1 tie iron filings uo not make nor give ont the hydrogen, nor the acid, but tho water. The oxygen of the water leaves the hydrogen and becomes incorporated with the iron, forming the oxydo of iron. The gas may bo caught in a receiver, on tha pneumatic trough. The nse of the acid is to act upon the iron so that a clean surface may always be ex posed to the oxygen of the water. Tha residue of this experiment may beevapo rized and the crystals formed will be the sulphate of iron; common copperas; a drug used in stomachics by the physician, and ma,ch used by the dyer for making blues on cotton and for making variations in the shades of different browns. It is also tlio basis of blocks. Sci. Am. Mr. Locke, formerly editor of the Sa vannah Republican, in a letter to that paper from Europe, giving an account of a recent visit to Venice says: "A strange occurrence took place while I 'was in Ve nice. On tho same evening;' in different parts ot the town, two yonng girls, nine or ten years old, were enticed awav to solitary abode, where they were blindfold ed 'and conducted to ' another retired house. Here they were well treated dur ing twenty-four hours, with enough to eat and drink, but they were bled several times almost to the point of fainting, and when they had no more blood to spare, without endangering their lives, they were restored to their homes by night in the same mvsterious way. Everybody in town was startled by this singular, inci dent. j.'he most common-explanation was, taat an old sorceress had recom mended to some deluded being bathing in the blood of young and healthy nor- sons as a method of restoring exhausted nature. . - -. ; ; - Ccriocs Typographical Error. Pro fessor Trench, in his latest work on the English language, points ont a curious typographical error in the 20th verse of the 23d chanter of Matthew. The words "which strain at a gnat and swallow camel," the professor thinks contain mbprint, which having been passed over in the edition of lull, has held its ground ever since. The translators intended to say, "which strain ovt a gnat and swal low a camel," that being the correct ren dering of tho original, as appears in Tynsdale's and Oranmer's translations, both of which have "strained out." " It was the custom of the stricter Jews to strain their wine, vingar, and other por tables through linen or ganze, lest una wares they should drink down sone little unclean insect, as a gnat, and transgress the LcviticAl law. It was to this cus torn the Saviour allu.leJ, intending to say that the Scribes and Pharisees, while they Rtram ont a gnat from their drink. would yet swallow a camel at a gnlp. Improved Wat of Makixo Bread. The Paris correspondent of the Commer cial Advertiser speaks of a plan invented by a baker or that city to reduce the cost of bread. He puts in one part of rice to five of wheat floor, an i the economy ef fected reaches the very considerable figure of one son in the two pound loaf. The Government has had the bread examined by competent persons, and has authorized the sale of it, at a less rate than fixed by the police. The dtmand is such tlut the baker cannot supply it, Neither the nu triment nor the taste of the bread , would appear to be affected by the presence of the new ingredient. Treatment of Cbocp.

The undersigned, havine obtained, during the twenty odd years which he devoted mainly to Revolutionary Claims, at Washington, a lar;e amount of facts and proofs connected with the services of officers of the Revolution, and bav ins a complete list of all thoe Continental Offi cers who were promised half-pay by the scrcral resolves of Comrr'ss, and of those also whose j widows and children were entitled to "seven j years half pay " under the rcolve of 24th Au gust, Iiw, will oe prepared to prosecute seen claims, if the lilt reported to pay such claims, hitherto favorably acted upon in both Houses of Congress, at different timcx, shall become a law; and of this but little doubt is entertained. The undersigned will also give his especial attention to those Virginia Haunt it ImkiI Claims and Virginia iatf-paf Claims, which remain un adjusted, and also to any and all other classes of demands npon the Government, which may be of sufficient magnitude to afford a reasonable compensation. Prompt attention will bo 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 furnUh 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 maj desire them.- He will also be prepared to furnish to those who may require them (and for a reasonable compensation) full and compieUi liots of tlie Of ficer of the Continental Army whose cases are embraced in the bills which h.ive been pending in Congress for the last two or three years, and on which, as before stated, favorablo action has been had ia each House at different sessions of Congress. Desirous of placing within the reach of all the descendants of Revolutionarv Officer the means of ascertaining whetker mr not the names of their ancestors are found npon tha authentic rolls of the Army, among tliose embraced in tlie bills referred to, the undersigned will furnish for puh licatioti, to all publishers of newspapers a ho will give this advertisement three Insertions in their papers respectively (and send a nupy thereof to him) full lut of the officer mf or eta id for the thir teen original State. The publication of these lists will effectually remove one main objection to the proposed bill which has been raised by some members of CoDgreso, to-wit: tint these claims were known only togentt, who wonld charge exorbitant commissions for the prosecu tion and recovery of them, leaving but little to the claimants If claimants, with a full knowledge of their rights, think proper to give one-half, or any other portion ot their claims to tneir attorneys, the government has no right to complain. If mem bers of Congress, instead of fulminating their wrath against aqente, 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 far more valuable service to their constituents, than by oppming a law to pay just claims on the pretext that agents will receive large fees for their services. ' It is not, however, the purpose of the under signed to interfere, in any manner, with mem bers of Congress, in the discharge of their du tie, nor with agents in the recovery of tlieir cornmianaaa, whether high or low. The publica tion of the list in the newspapers, is, in his judgment, a simple act of justice to claimants and it ia but just to himself, and cannot possibly be complained of by others when he states, that for the prosecution and recovery of the claims of Officer of tho Continental Army, whose names are oa the lists referred to, his commis sions will uniformly be Jive per cent, on the amount recovered. His commissions in other cases will be a matter of special contract. To save all unnecessary correspondence, the undersigned atates, that" hj cannot attend to claims of oo Id ten lor pensions under tha act of 1832, nor can he make investigations into any pension case " ttupended " by the Pension Of fice, without the pre payment of a fee. The ea ses of widows, under the act of 3d of February, i 1853, who are entitled to arrears from 1848, will be prosecuted in the Court of Claims lor a com mission of ten per cent, on the arrears. Letters making Inquiries about claims of va rious descriptions, cannot be answered, unless a 1 tea accompanies tne application. Tna time re quired: to esamau eases, and the accessary -ex pense of correspondence, in time, postages, Ac. o-c-i loroia racn examinations, witbout tome com pensation therefor. Persons who may wish to know on what terms generally, the undersigned will investigate and prosecute claims, may lean, by addressing him a letter enclosing a postage stamp and asking tw uif uutsuir i vorrmeponaemm.

Mm, dreadful ulcers and sores have been healed ap by tha purging and purifying effect of these PilKtnd some disgusting diseasea which seemed to saturate the whole system have completely yielded tn thnr influence, leavina the aunerer in perfect healtk Patients ! your duty to society forbids that ju should parade yourself around the world eotwo with pimples, blotches, ulcers, sores, and all or u of the unclean diseases of the skin, because jo system wanta cleansing. To Puurr th Blood, they are the best mtdi cine ever discovered. They should be taken fmty aad frequently, and the impurities which sow lit seeds of incurable diseases will be swept out of ta, svstem like eharf before tha wind. By this property they do as much good in preventing sickness at bv the remarkable cures which they are making mry where. Lnraa Coarrianrr, Jacxdicb, and all Buiom AJTcrtioni, arise from some derangement ithr torpidity, congestion, or obstructions of the Liver. Torpidity and congestion vitiate the bile and render it unfit for digestion. This is disastrous to tha health, and the constitution is frequently onder mined by no other cause. Indigestion ia the symp tom. Obstruction of the duct which empties ua bile into the stomach causes the bile to overflow into the blood. This produces Jaundice, with a long and dangerous train of evils. Costiveness, ar alternately coetirenesa and diarrhoea, prtvaiis. Feverish symptoms, languor, low spirits, weariness, restlessnesa, and melancholy, with sometimes in ability to sleep, and sometimes great drowsmrat; sometimes there is severe pain in the aide ; the akia and the white of the eyes become a greenish yellow; the stomach acid; the bowela sure to if, tones; the whole system irritable, with a tendency to fens, which may turn to bilious fever, bilious colic, bilious diarrhoea, dysentery, fte. A medium dose of thrts or four Pills" taken at night, followed by two or tans in the moroinr, and repeated a few days.will remoTt the cause of all these troubles. It is wicked to suffer such pains when you can core them for 25 cents. Bhscmatism, Govt, and all Inflammatory Fe vers, are rapidly cured by the purifying effects of these Fills npon the blood and the stimulus which they aubrd to the vital principal of Life. Forthsts and all kindred complaints they should ba taken ia mild doses, to move thefcorela gently, but freely. As a Dinnkk Pill, this is both agreeable sad useful.
