The first thing that gave oar manufac turers the start they have received in thin country, was the improvement made in oor machinery. We had to pay two or three times the price for labor common in Europe, and hence it became a matter of great importance for 01 to economize it in eveiy way. The system of long ap prenticeship and cheap labor made it not worth while there to experiment much in that direction. With as the case wait altogether different. Labor wat every thing, and ingenuity of all kinds to savej that, was at work in all directions, and thus from Franklin's motto of well paid labor, sprang our success in manufactures. The same seems likely to be true in regard to oar success in agriculture. A few English noblemen can and do exper iment on steam plows and reaping ma chines. But the great balk of the plow ing throughout Europe is done at this moment by oxen and asses, and tome times even by women yoked in with the beasts they drive. In this country there are a hundred farmers ready to take hold of steam machinery, as soon as its suc cess, practically, is fully demonstrated, and in twenty, years there is but little question that numbers of steam engines will be employed on farms. In the South, where slave-labor is employed, that i la bor that consumes but little, comparative ly, in food and clothing, ail machinery is far behind what it is in the North. The plows are bad, and the hoe is alone relied npon. It is because labor is so cheap. In Louisiana, however, where large capi talists had engaged in the cultivation of the sugar cane, negro labor had become o expensive, that steam machinery was being extensively introduced. The re opening of the slave trade will of course have the effect of retarding the period of all improvements in agricultural imple ments. Good tools require good work men, and they are so dear, that they can not be afforded where careless bands are employed, or where the feed of a horse will cost more than that of a man. Ex. Keeping Potatoes is Winter. Po tatoes spoil in winter, if buried, for three causes. First and greatest, want of ven tilation. Secondly, and nearly allied, dampness. Thirdly, and more rare, free zing. Farmers find most of potatoes (spoiled at the top of the heap, where they enppose they became frozen ; but this is not the nsual cause ; the damp, foul, steamy air ascended there, and could not escape, and this spoiled them. A hole made in the top, with a crowbar, and closed with a wisp of straw, would have allowed egress to the confined air, and caved the potatoes. The best way to secure potatoes ont--doors, is to make large heaps, say 50 or 0 bushels ; see that they are dry and clean, by digging before wet weather comes on ; cover them all over with an foot of packed straw, anil three inches of earth. The straw will prevent dampness, and the few inches of earth will favor ventilation. A farmer who - raises many potatoes, and practices this mode, does not lose a peck, on an average, in 50 bushels. Valcs of Anthracite Coal Ashes for Manure. Mr. Bnnce, of Yale laboratory,- has presented an analysis of the ashes from anthracite coal, to the Ameri can Association for the promotion of Sci ence, recently held at New Haven. He shows conclusively that important ingre dients for the growth of plants are con tained in these ashes, and though much less valuable than those obtained from wood, yet they are quite useful for agri cultural purposes. We hope such of our farmers as have, or can easily procure them, will not fail to give them a fair tri al, on different crops and soils, and send ns the result of their experience for pub lication. American Agriculturist. Vitality of Seed. Parsnip, rhnbarb, and other thin, scaly seeds, keep for one year. Carrots, cress, ochre, gumbo, onions, peas, peppers, and small herbs in general, for two years. Egg p'ant, endive, asparagus, mustard, and parsley, for three years. Turnips, cabbage, cauliflower, corn, radd i6h and sea-kale, for four years. Beet, celery, cucumber, melon, squash, for five or ten years. To preserve seeds, they must be kept cooi witnout being kept damp. To Boil Hommony. To one quart of nomraonv, pat two quarts of cold water. and a tablespoonful of salt : boil nntil the watnr is entirely absorbed. Take it from the fire, cover the pot closely, and set it on the not ashes for fifteen or twenty minutes to soak. Serve it in a iloep-cov"-ered dish, with batter cut into email pieces, on the top. Those who like cream with it, may add half a pint while on the ashes. It is whiter and better tas ted when boiled in a pot lined with por celain or in an .earthen pipkin. Anon. Storiso Winter Cabbages. Such cabbage, at the extreme north, as you wish to keep through the winter and ear . ly spring, may be pulled up by the roots, and arranged in compact rows, with their beads downward, resting on the surface of the ground, so that their stalks will stand upright in the air ; then, they may be covered with straw and earth, and treated ia every other respect as directed for root crops, . Should the weather be nnnsnally warm, the earth and straw should be open ' ed to let in air. Anon. Worth Knowing if True. William Zj. Morgan, of Pottsville, Warren Coun ty, Ind., says that the seed from the bntt end of an ear of corn will ripen its pro duct all at the same time, and some three weeks earlier than seed from the little end of the same ear. He recommends far mers to break their seed corn in two in the middle, and nse the butt ends only for seed. There are several good ways of keeping cabbages during winter by bnrying them out of doors. The difficulty is, it is hard to get at them daring the winter, without damage to those left. The following plan appears to avoid this difilcnlty : Cnt the head from the stump, and pack closely in a sack, taking care to fill op all the vacancies with chaff or bran, and keep in a dry cellar. i Ce Jim jof Cjmtg.

Mr. Lord, who is now residing in Illi nois, was a short time since riding from Jacksonville to Peoria, in that State, and as he was passing a small hut by the roadside, he noticed a shaggy-headed boy about eight years of age, with large eyes, no hat, and dressed in a worn-out pair of his father's trowsers, trying Id balance himsalf on the splinter! top of a hickory stump. ; ' ' More for the purpose of breaking the monotony of riding all day without spea king, than to gain information, Mr. Lord reined bis horse op to the fence, and said " My little boy, can you tell me how far it ii to Sangamon Bottom ?" " 'Bout six miles, I reckon." - " Do yon live in that house ?" inquir ed Mr. Lord." " " r "I reckon," was the reply. "Do von enjoy yourself our here in the woods?" "A heap." " What ails your pants ?" "Tore 'em," was the laconic answer. Finding that he bad hold of a genius that could not be pumped, Mr. Lord turn ed his head to depart, but in return was now hailed by the boy, who, in a comic al, half-reluctant tone, exclaimed : " What mout your name be?" "Lord," was the answer. Here the boy grinned all over, even to the wrinkles in his father's trowsers, and seemed hardly able to suppress a broad snicker. ' "You seem pleased," said Iord; "per haps yon never heard the name before?" "Yes, I have," replied the youngster; " I've heard pap read about you in the Bible 1" Lord put spurs to his horse, and says that even thoughts to which the incident gave rise were not sufficient to keep him from snickering the rest of the journey. ' The above is something like the Green Mountain bov who was introduced to T)aniel Webster. He looked at the man ly statesman for a moment, and remarked that he had "heered a deal abont him, but he never bad seed him afore, tho' he had seed thousands of his spell in' books!" A Strict Temperance Man. We were accosted the other evening, says the editor of a lioston paper, by a gentle manly looking man, evidently balancing a clever sized brick in his castor. " 1 say, miB-mister, will you be kind enough to toll me the way to Broadway?" "No Broadway here, sir; this is not Kew York." "Oh! ah! ah! yes, that's a fact. Well, I beg your pardon your pardon pardon ; show me to Fourth Street Mil-Miller's Hotel." "Now, you're in Philadelphia, old boy. Wrong again." " Ha ! ha ! Well, I'm darned confu sed, that's a fact. All right Please to tell me whe-whether it's left or right I take to Holiday Street?" "That's a 6treet that ain't got this way yet. Perhaps yon are thinking of the city of Baltimore?" " Where the deuce am I, stranger, any ! how ?" We told him, in Boston. He jammed his fists into his pockets, after hitting his hat a smash, and stepped off, observing : "Well. I'm darned if I follow this temperance caravan any longer !" The Coolest Yet. A good anecdote is told of a man named Bentley, a con firmed driaker, who would never drink with a frind or in public, and always bitterly denied, when a little too steep, ever tasting liquor. One day some bad witnesses had concealed themselves in his coerfn, and when the liquor was running down his throat, seized him with his arm crooked and his mouth open, and holding him fast, asked him, with an air of tri umph : Ah. Bentley, have we caught yon at last? Yon never drink, ha 1" Now, one would suppose that Bentley would have acknowledged the corn. Not he with the most grave and inexpressi ble face, he calmly, and in a dignified manner, said: "Gentlemen, my name is not Bentley!" The Hartford Times gives vent to the pent-np genius of a scholar of that city, who astonished his school-mates by the following "composition :" Composition.

Cisterns are built very cheaply in many localities, where the earth is of a compact character, by dig ging a hole and plastering the walls of it with cement. It is necessary that the cistern should be so covered as to seenre the cement from the action of frost. A cistern ten feet deep and six feet wide, will hold seventy barrels of water. A good form is to dig a hole the shape of an egg, with the big end down. each a cistern, nine feet deep and eight in di ameter, will hold one hundred barrels of water. Even where it is necessary to brick them up before plastering, cisterns are srenerallv cheaper than wells, and, if of good size and well made, are much su perior, because they afford a sufficient supply of water from any ordinary sized roof, and of greatly superior quality. For family nse, it is well to divide the cistern into two eompartmenta by a par tition, with filtering material in the bot tom of one side the water to be dischar ged from the roof into one side, and drawn for nse from the other. . Ccre for Hydrophobia. Hydropho bia has been generally considered incura ble. We believe the medical faculty have so decided, and we deem them bet ter capable of judging than anybody else. Nevertheless, we are always willing to hear suggestions from any quarter, and the following recipe comes from such high authority, that we are nappy to give if. in the hope, however, that none of our readers may ever be compelled to use it or any other so-called remedy for that most horrible of all diseases : "Recipe. Dissolve a pint of common table salt in a pint of boiling water; scar ify the part affected freely, then apply the salt water with a cloth as warm as the patient can bear it, repeating the same for at least an hour. "The same recipe has been successfully applied for the bite of rattlesnakes." A Valuable Secret. The unpleasant odor produced by perspiration, is fre quently the source of vexation to gentle men and ladies, some of whom are as subject to its excess as their fellow mor tals of another color. Nothing is simpler than the removal of this odor, at muc less expense, and much more effectually, than by the application of such costly unguents and perfumes as are in use. It is only necessary to procure some of the compound spirits of ammonia, and place about two table spoonfuls in a basin of water. Washing the face, hands and arms with this, leave the skin as clo.in. fresh and sweet as one could wish. The wash being perfectly harmless, and very cheap, we recommend it, on the authori ty of one of our most experienced physi cians, to our readers. To Remove Freckles. The best pre paration to remove freckles, which are so common at this season, is a teacupful of cold, soured milk, and a small quantity of scraped horse-radish. Let it stand from 6 to 12 hours, then use it to wash the parts affected two or three times a day. Another mixture is half a drachm of ammonia, two drachms of lavender water, and half a pound of distilled wa ter. Use it with a sponge two or three times a day. A 6till simpler composi tion is a quarter of a drachm of borax, half a drachm of sugar, and one ounce of lemon juice. Mix and let it stand for few days, then rub it on occasionally.
