While travelling, in 1857, through (ha beautiful city of Leipsig, I observed, boat half league from the gate of the vtown, a few rods from the highway, a 'Wheel and the bones of a chained cbrpse exposed to the gate of every passer. The following is the history of the criminal, as I had it from the lips of the Judge who condacted the trial and con demned his body to be broken : - A German bntcher, being benighted in the midst of a forest, lost his way, and while endeavoring to find the road, was attacked by highwaymen. lie was on horseback, and accompanied by a large dog. One robber seized the bridle, while the others dragged the bnteher from bis etddle'and felled him. The dog imme diately leaped upon one of them and strangled him ; bat the other wounded - the animal so 5erere1y, that ha rnshed in to the-troods ottering the most fearful bowls. The bntcher, who by this time had disengaged himself from the grasp of - the second robber, drew .his knife and killed him. Bat at the same moment he "received a shot from the third, who had - jnst wonnded the dog. and falling, was . dispatched by the assassin, who fonnd upon him a large snm of gold, a silver watch, and some other things. He plun dered the corpse, sprang upon the horse, , . and fled. Z The next morning, two" woodcutters, happening in the path, fonnd tha dead bodies, and a large dog that seemed to be , " guarding them. Tbey endeavored in vain to restore life. One of them dressed the wonnds of the ' -rdog, gave him some food, and sought ' 'some water for him. while the other hast- .ened to the nearest village, to inform the . magistrate of the discovery. The officer, 1 accompanied by several attendants, was 'soon on the spot, a surgeon examined the .wonnds, a verbal process was drawn up, (nd the bodies were interred. r' . The dng te and drank, but would not f I,'.' Ta ,hf Pot Hfl looked on quietly .,' ,' while the grave waa dcg. and allowed the f i i. bodies to be bnried; bnt as soon aa the tnrf J Jwas replaced, he stretched himself upon ' v t'it. howled mnnrnfnlly, and resisted all , 'efforts of the by-standers to remove him, cttnpnapping all who came sear blra. to 'Batke the attempt Ont who eiressej him, on attempting to move his paw, f ' tame near being severely' bitten, and bad C j c b flee oat of the way, to eacapa.the dog'e t a anger. All admired snch fidelity, and when r othe woodman offered to carry kin food - J and drink every day, that ba night not -rprun, me magistrate proposed takiag r''.IBP co"ection to pay the a an. who waa poor and the father of a large family. An n who Would hardlv inmnl tfm'mi-inaV. int tfi ? finally did so with reluctance, aad. took wfigood care of hia new aad aktlapw- -Bioner. tu. r. T?.atd!u5U of the horri6le-i.fairere: ,J5 pnbliahed in all the pspira of .TjUrmsay. ud teeing tha notice, J. Meyers haateaed to tha magistrate, and on examination, had hia feara realised that the murdered man was his brother. The deceased had had a large snm of money with him, which he, had designed to invest in beeves. As soon as the dog saw the brother of his late master, be manifested ranch' joy, lapped his hands, and otherwise exhibit ed his pleasure. ' Mr. Meyers removed the corpse to his native village, and interred it. The faith ful dog followed the body, bnt by degrees became attached to his new master. Every effort was made, end the most diligent search instituted, to discover the murderer, bnt in vain. Two years pased away, and then Mr. Meyera went to Leipzig, on business, and was accompanied by hia ever-present companion, the faithful dog. The city Was fnll of people, it being the time of the great fair held there reg ularly twice a year. While walking one morning ob the public fquarfl, with the dog, he waB as toniahed to behold the animal leap for ward like a flash, ruh through the crowd, and spring fnrionsly upon an elegantly dressed yonng gentleman, who was seated in the centre of the square, upon an ele vated platform erected for the spectators who desired more conveniently to see the show. He held him by the throat with so firm a grasp, that ha soon would have strangled him, bad not assistance been rendered. Tbey immediately - chained the dog. and thinking he was mad, strove to kill him. Mr. Meyers rushed forward, and arrived in time to rescne his faithful friend, calling eagerly, meantime, npon the people to arrest the man, as be be lieved his dog recognized in him the mur derer of his brother. Before he had time to explain, the yonng ram took advantage of the tumult and escaped. For some moments they tbonght Meyers himself mad ; and he had great difficulty to persuade those who had bound the dog, that the faithful creature was harmless, and begged tbem earnestly to release him, that he might pursue the assassin. He spoke in so convicting a manner, that hia hearers finally felt pnr suaded of the truth of his assertions, and restorrd the dog to his freedom, who joy ously bounded to hismseter, leaped abont him a few times, and hastened away. The crowd divided, and bo was eoon np on the offender's track. The police, active and prompt on Mich occasion, were soon in pursuit. The dog became in a few moments the object of public curiosity, and every one drew back to give him room. Business was suspended, and the people cellected in groups, conversing about the wonderful dog, and the murder two years before. After half an hour's search, the man was fonnd. He had stretched himself upon the ground, under the heavy folds of a double tent, and believed he was hidden. But in spile of his fancied secu rity, the avenger had tracked bim ; jump ing upon him, he bit him, tore hia gar ments, and wonld have killed him upon the spot, had not assistance rushed to his rescue. He was arrested, and with Mr. Meyers and the dog, taken before the magistrate, who heard all the story, and was greatly puzzled to know how to proceed in so extraordinary a case ; bnt after interroga ting the prisoner, whose answers were very unsatisfactory, he acquiesced in the earnest demand of Mr. Meyers and held the acensed for a future hearing. During the trial, it was almost impos sible to bold the dog, so intent and de terroined was he that the man should not again escape. , Upon the prisoner was fonnd a sum of sold, jewels, four cold watches and one silver one; the last Mr. Meyers, declared to be the one his brother wore the day he left home, and the discriptinn of the watch published by bim months before, corroborated his statement, and suited the watch in every' particular. The rob ber had never dared expose it, being aware that it had been described in all the prin cipal journals of Germany. After a thorough investigation end a fair trial, the man was fonnd guilty aat the end of eight months, dnring which period the most scrutinizing legal exam inations were made at every point, and sentenced to be broken alive, and bis corpse to remain chained upon the wheel as an example to others. From the first, the prisoner stoutly de nied being the murderer of Meyers, though he confessed to other crimes ; bnt on the night previous to the day of his execu tion, finding that his denial woold avail him nothing, he made a fnll confession. gave all the details above reiatea, ana declared that be had always believed tba cursed dot; had died of ita wounds, say ing, had it not been for him, I should not have been here. Nothing else could have discovered me, for I killed the horse and bnried him. with all he wore. He expired on the wheel, and his was the corpse I had seen before eateing the citv of LeiDiirr. JThe keeping of tne watch instead of (burying it, too, seeas to have been an oversight directed by an overruling Providence, for hia conviction of tha hor rible crime for which he suffwed death.

One gentleman whose nose (wich trooly blossomed ez the lobster) betokened long service in the party, urg ed that he hed bin a delegate to both con venshens. "Thank God 1" sed Johnson. "Wood that both uv them convenshens hed bin made np uv the same men. I wood then hcv bin bored far places only half as much ez I am." 1 wuz n helpin him out in my weak way. When the crowd wantin places become too great for'hncuan endoorance, I wood say, in a modrit tone, '"'let's go ont and git suthin," and to-wunst fully half wood' exclaim, "Thank.yoo, I don't keer ef I do." It wuz a greater relief to Johnson; the anguish, anxiety and soliss- itude in tha gittin of offi-es nnd free drinks wnz about an ekal thing. The offises they wantid waz merely the mcns to that pertikeler end, nnd so long ez they wnz gittin the latter without the trouble nv the former, they wnz content. A good constooahen and copper lined 6tum ick carried me thro this tryin ordeel, un til I came across a Boston applicant, who, in cdnsekence uv the perhibitory law, hed bin for some time on short rash- ens, nnd wnz keen set.

With a vigger wonderful in one so old. he set about gittin testimonials ez to the valyoo uv the territory, to inflooence the Senit in ratifyin the treaty he wuz agoin to make. And he wrote to a naval offi- aer abont it, who answered more prompt ly thin 1 ever knowed a naval offiser to do, ez follows : "It's trooly a splendid country. The trade in the skins uv white bears kin be, ef properly developed, made enormous. There is seals there, and walrnses so tame that they come up nv their own akkord to be ketcbed. "P. S.

And so it wnz agreed upon, nnd the treaty wuz made by telegraph at a ex pense nv I forgiteggsackly but I think it wnz eummers in the neighborhood nv 820.000.

Seward went at his work with great energy. Tbe Parchis wnz divided np into six territories', (fur the number uv delegates to our convcnshn'ns wcz large, and they hed to ba provided for.) wich woz named, tespectively, Johnson, Sew ard, Uowan, Uoohttle, Randall and Welles. For "ihe'oiio in the extreme North, the farthest off.

Smokiscj and Keepiscj Bacoh. Sev oral correspondents write as to inquire tor meanest wsy to smoke meati and to keep it after it is cared. The very best material for a fire with which to smoke bacon, is green hickory wood, next tothat perhaps is corn-cobs. Whatever is used for fire, the utmost care should be taken to havo the smoke pare from all smudgy odors which taint tbe meat. To keep the meat after it is smoked, some people succeed best to let it hang in the emoke-honse; where this is not prac ticable, it cab be covered with cotton sacks, and tha outside of tbe sacks coat ed with a thick lime wash. A perfectly safe way to keep bacdn hams, is to cnt them in slices of tha usnal thickness for cooking, scald them in boiling water, end then pack in stona jars, press them down, and poor melted lard to fill all tha interstices of tbe meat and to cover the top. In this way, the meat can be used as wsnted, and will ba nice. Ohio Far mtr. Tomato Catsup for Cocoes. Hap pening to be ont of lobelia once, when Bessie and I bad cooghs, a friend told me to try tomato catsup (other kinds may answer as well). Well, I hunted up a bottle of it, and it certainly relieved us very much. We took a teaspoonfnl at a time, and very little of it answered as welt as any remedy-1 ever tried for congh or eoro throat. I bad been in the habit of getting tbe tincture of lobelia, dilnting it with water and sweetening with white sugar, and always fonnd it very effectual for coughs, in teaspoon do ses; but hereafter I intend making toma to catsup as a family remedy for coughs, sore throats and hoarseness. I think jonr readers would do well, to try it. Lard for Scalds. A few days since, in harrying np breakfast, I spilled some boiling coffee on my wrist, which hurt me very much. I opened tho enpboard to Gad something to pnt on it, and tho first thing I saw was some lard, and I applied it at once without wrapping np the sore. Tba lard increased tbe pain so much, for a few moments, that I fair ly danced up and down the room. I have had no more tronble with it, how ever; tba. skin wss considerably blistered, bnt did not break, and now only tha scar remains. Una application was suf ficient. Potato Poultice. Where there is tha necessity to nse a ponltice, no person who has once experienced the comfort of a po tato ponltice, will again nse bread. It is light nnd keeps hot a long time, csn again be reheated and more than all, does not moisten the garments or bed clotlios which it comes in contact with. Pare and boil the potatoes, strain and then mesh them with a fork over the fire. Pat them in n bag, and apply the ponl tice as hot as the patient can bear it. To Make Calicoes Wabit Well. Infuse three gills of salt in four quarts of boiling water, and put tha calicoes in while hot, and leave them till cold ; in this way the colors are rendered perma nent, and will not fade by subsequent washing. So says a lady who has fre quently made tho experiment herself. Nothing can bs cheaper or more quickly done. A Mr. Lee told the New York Far mers' Club that he had been a contrac tor npon public works, and that it was a common remark that the men from dis tricts where buckwhest was tbe principal article of breadstuff, were not worth mnch as laborers. Tbey cannot endure toil like jtboso fed npon wheat flour and lean meat. To Extikgdisr a Finx is a Cbibsbt. Throw some powdered brimstone on the fire in tbe grate, and then pnt a board or something in tbe front of the fireplace to prevent the fumes descending into tbe room. The vapor of tbs brimstone as cending the chimney will thea effectually extinguish tbe soot on fire. Bedbugs Salt Them. A lady-writes the Texan Christian Advocate that salt is a sure thing oa bedbugs. Wash tbe articles and places iafested with tbe bogs with salt and water, aad fill cracks aad crevices where the vermin hide they will give no more trouble. They cannot abide where salt is. To Remove Staiss Feom Silks. Stains produced by vinegar, lesson jaiee, oil of vitriol or other sharp corrosives; may often be removed from silks by mix ins a little pearlasb with soap lather aad passing tbe silks tbrongh it.

Jur Sxm Care oC Stallions. , ,,j Bat fsw who have the care of itallioss know how to treat tbem properly. Ther are too frequently kept in soma dsrk.'il-ly-ventilated, out-of-tSe way . stable, wbera they stand from morning till sight without any exercise. They are pam pered with high feeding, and made ar fat as bollocks prepared for slaughter1. Thns kept in dark stables,' witbont e'xer-" cise, and with high feeding, they are un healthy, wishy-washy creatnres, wholly unfit to propagate a vigorous, niuscnlar progeny. A stallion to have justice done him' fa'' his offspring, shonld be kept in the most perfect health. His stable bIiouM be well lighted, woll ventilated, and he shonld'' be allowed abnndant physical exercise. He shonld be walked at least five or six miles daily, and a little jogging, now and then, will do him good, even if tbe per spiration ia raised for in this way the pores of bis skin are opened, and the im purities of bis system worked off. By this means his muscular system is kept vigorous, his constitution unimpaired and in its highest tone; snd ha is pre pared to impart his highest and belt qualities to his offspring. btallions tbat are making, a season, however, shonld not have violent exer cise. They shonld not be driven at' the top of their speed shonld by bo. means be pnt in a race, or have any thing done to them to lessen or impair their vigor or spirit. Tho stallion shonld ba' kept in "fighting" condition all the time have enough exercise to keep bim-in per fect health bnt not. enongh to tax or overdo his powers or exhsnst bis flow of spirits. We bava seen tha reputations of Btallions rained by standing and train ing them on tho track at the same time, tbe stallion begetting no offspring oa ac count of his physical system being over taxed tbe same stallion the season be fore, when properly and judiciously ex ercised, being a euro foal getter. ' ' As this is tha season for breeding, we hope tha owners of stallions and aares wil give onr remarks the consideration the merit. Caiman's Jiurd Worldl Potatoes. If experience is a good schoolmaster', the following from a writer in tha Mdina Farmer, is worth heeding : Having raised potatoes sufficient for( my own use and, commonly some to sell every year for sixty-five years, and' hay ing tried various methods and experi ments, and made progress, T will stats'"' what I have fonnd to be the most pro ductive and remnnerative course, vix : First.
