About Dragon Flies.
lis a recent number of the ItftusnrhvJtetts Ploughman (Boston) the editor, when al luding to "Insect Friends" of the tillers of the soil, states that it is well for every reaaer to rernemoer mat ine "dragon flies" generally are all our friends and ought to be preserved and petted rather than hunted down and killed, as they too often are. The eggs of dragon flies are iaia near ine surface or water, wbere tney hatch, not into winged insects like the parent, but into oddly-shaped animals. which are chiefly remarkable for their masked mouth and the power of moving by means of a Jet of water expelled from the tail. They pass most of their lives . daring the lame stage in crawling about Upon the bottom ana feeding upon other - aquatic insects and even small fish. After some months ther become full crown, hav ing changed their skin many times when they are in the pupa state, appearing with short wing cases. After emerging from the water they cling firmly to some stone or other substance a few inches above the surface, and, the skin on tue back split ting open, the insect slowly disengages itseii ana worn its way orn, naving now wings and other organs like its parent. At first their wings are moist and crum pled, but in a few hours become expanded and hardened, and the brilliant colors gradually become apparent. The family Udonata comprises all the day-trj sects commonly called "devil's in- needles," "drairon flies," or " horse-sting- era," and "mosquito hawks." These are again divided into tribes, sub-families tfnd - genera: the first tribe. Aenonina (from a Greek work meaning wild or savage), is largely represented in Massachusetts. It contains the more slender-bodied insects known as " darning-needles," -and distin guished by their short, broad heads, with distant eyes and four jointed short antennas," which, appear like two ta pering bristles situated between the eyas. The genus CeUopteryr. from kotos, beautiful, and pteryx, a wing, is appro priately named and contains some of our handsomest sneciea The body is eener- ally of a shining, brassy green, or bluish color, and the wings broadest toward the apex and finely veined. The females of - this genus have, an oval, whitish spot on the interior margin of each wing near the tip, which is called the pterostigma, or wing mark. This is found throughout the vaonala. ana is of greatvalue in mentinca- tion, being of various forms and colors in ainerent species, ana not generally con fined to one sex as in the present case. The order Nexrontera. or nerve-winced " insects, consists almost entirely of insect ivorous species, and is specially to be re garded as friendly to the farmer. The "dragon flies" or "devil's needles" are to be seen during the whole summer swiftly darting and circling through the air, seiz ing and devouring the moths and butter Hies that cross their pain, in passing s pool or brook the sharp rattle of tueii thin, crisp wings strikes Uis eat and calk the attention to the sportive flight of these ; terrible destroyers.

It would be perhaps considered un- : necessary to advert here to the childisu tradition of the terrific effects of the dragon fly on the human system, namely. its alleged powers of sewing up the e e and of stinging men and animals, were ii not that an immense amount of ignorance yet exists concerning some or the most common objects of nature.

The recent disastrous floods in Europe have called the attention or engineers to the various methods which have been pro posed to prevent these calamities. A writer in A attire thinks that the only way in which mountain torrents can De regu lated is by constructing reservoirs to re tain the flood-water. He then proceeds to quote from a paper presented some time since to the Smithsonian institute oy bit. Charles Ellett, Jr., V. containing vaiu- able information in recard to the improve ment of the navigation of the Ohio Kiver. He says "This paper contains the tabu- latcd results of an elntwrate series of ob- scrvationa made bv the author in the spring and summer of 1849 on the flow of uie UIHO at neeiing, neiween r-uiauurgu and Cincinnati. The flow varied from 10.1S8.000 cubic feet rer hour, with a depth of 2.20 feet on the bar at Wheeling, to 73rt,000,000 cubic feet, with a depth of 31.25 feet on the bar. The average vol- uuie of water annnallv flowing down the Ohio is 835.000,000,000 cubic feet. This volume would fill a lake 100 feet deep and 17.i miles square. To have regulated the supply of the river in 1848, so as to have kept Uie depth on the bar at Wheeling uniform throughout the year, would have required reservoirs capable of hold ing 240,000,000,000 cubic feet, which is equivalent to a single lake 100 feet deep and Us miles square, mere is ne difficulty, on any of the principal tribu taries of the upper Ohio, in obtaining reservoirs capable of holding from 12,- 000,000,000 to 20,000,000.000 of cubic feet It can scarcely be doubted that twelve or ni teen sites for dams may be selected capa cious enough to hold all the excess of water and equalize the annual discharge so nearly that the depth may be kept with in a very few feet of an invariable height lo control tne nooas ot uie river, nowev er. much less than this would be needed. Mr. Ellett takes the case of the flood of March. 1841. as beine that it which the greatest quantity of water passed down of all the floods concerning which he has in formation. Ue takes twenty-five feet of depth on the bar as the high-water mark, above which the river is in flood ; he es timates that during nine days of flood the river passed down 159,000,000,000 cubic teet or water, while during the same time, had it been steady at the high-watermark, the discharge would have been only 115.- 000,000,000. If consequently the excess of 44,000,000,000 had been kept back in res ervoirs the flood would have been pre vented. The volume it is here proposed to deal with 44,000,000,000 cubic feet is just equal to tne quantity tne river would discharge in fifty days when tuere is a aepin oi live tcet in uie channel. The Poetical Bedouin. A writer save: The Bedouins pride themselves- on hav ing iuuui mure intelligence ami renne- ment, romance and poetry than the settled Arab races ; they have an especial con tempt for the tellahin. One day a Uedouin threw this in the face of a Christian fel lah. They had some high words auout it. upon which the Bedouin said: "Well, tuou Bball come to our tents. I will ask my daughter but three questions ; we will note ner answers. 1 will accompany taee to thy village and thou. Shalt ask thy daughter the same three questions, and we will compare her language witit my daughter's. Both are uneducated.- 11 v daughter knows naught but nature's lan guage.

When a new bone finds its way into the tudent's hands be observes, sars Prof. illwin. some peculiarity in shape or ttructure in which it differs from the bones je is already acquainted with; the quts !ion naturally occurs to him : Why does .his bone assume one shape in one animal rod in another is modified into a different form? lie mnv look in vain in his boots for an answer to his query. And yet it is points like these which, in my opinion make up tne true science 01 osteology. I is throuzh careful, constant and in tell i 1 gent observation that these enigmas are to 1 be solved. Observation, indoors ana out; close attention to the habits of the animal in Question on the one hand, and careful consideration of its anatomical peculiar ities on the other. Take the skull of a crocodile. What do we find? 1 he orhits of the eyes, the nasal orifise,the passages leading to the auditory apparatus, an snuaiea on a niane aioug me upper naienci suriace oi mene. What, then, is the cause of this? Palpa bly, to allow the crocodile to remain sub merged in the water, with its nose, eyes and tars just aliove the surface to warn him of the aonroach of enemies or prey, and the rest of his carcass securely hidden beneath the waters. Take another instance. Observe the habits of a mole. With what rapidity it barrows under ground, shoveling away the earth with its fore feet. Then look at its skeleton. We find jtist what we should have expected. The bones of its fore legs ;f astounding strength and breadth, furnished with deep grooves, which, together with its sternum or breast bone, which is furnished with a keel almost like that of the sternum of a bird. afford attachment to the powerful mus cles, its nma legs, being simply neeaea for locomotion, are of the normal size. So also with the birds. The size of the keel of the sternum varies in proportion to the power of flight which each species re quires, for it is to the broad surfaces of the sternum that the great wifig muscles are attached. Take the skeleton ot a bum ming-bird, which spends his life almost upon the wing. We find there a keel of so vast a size that the remainder of the skeleton is reduced to insignificance in comparison. In these researches one is soon struck by the fact that, in the modifications in va rious bones, or sets of bones, in accordance with the habits of each animal, the orig inal type is never departed from, only modified. See, for example, the paddle of a whale, more like the fia of a fish- in general annearance : and vet the fuun4 of bones whicbsare found in the arm of a man are again found in an adapted form in the paddle of the whale. So. also, the foreleg or a norse preserves the same-gen erai Dian. n asi is renerauv cauea nis knee is in reality hut wrist.-' It is there that we nna uie liuie group of bones which form the corpus.

We still find the clavicle or collar bone, the scapula or shoulder-blade,, the humerus, ulna and radius, answering to the same bones of our arm, a small carpus or wrist. ana nnaiiy ue pnaianges or fingers, siuv 1 ; o.l -n .1 1 .. .1 1 i ,i nnnwAna.:.:.s v, .1 ception of a rudimentary thumb.

We is, so to speak, onryasigle finger. but we find, one on each aide of this little finger, two small bones, com monly known only as splint bones. These are thS rudimentary traces of the same finger bones, which in the rhinoceros are rally aeveiopea.

Mass. Many of the build- ings are large- and imposing. One bouse, recently erected, is five stories in height, besides the lofty basement.

The ut most nearness prevails throughout uie en tire village, as in all other Shaker settle ments. Buildings. -fields, raj-deos.? yards. even the roads near the village, are perfect ly kept. Such neatness and order are not seen anywhere else on so large a scale ex cept, perhaps, in Holland, where the necessities 01 existence impose mem. Shaker habits of life are peculiar. The men live on the right side of the houses. the women on the left, generally four in a room. Brethren and sisters eat at the same time at two long tables placed in the Kitchen, ue men sitting at one, ue women at the other, all sitting on long benches ana never speaking. They go to their meals from their rooms walking in order, the elders and elderesses in advance. The cooks and waiters are relieved weekly. There is a meeting-room in each house, where they assemble morning and even ing and Sunday afternoon. Until this summer they have always had a public service in the large meeting-house i-t the 'Church Family' every Sunday morn ing, but this summer it is discontinued. The reason which the Shakers themselves give for this is that owing to the recent fires they have been compelled to use their meeting-house for a storeroom." Those who adhere to what is known as " Old-fashioned Methodism" have gen erally regarded a custom that has obtained to some extent of arranging appointments in advance oi tne conferences between the preachers and the congregations as an innovation. Those who advocate the plan claim that it has important advantages: 1. Ibis system relieves the Hishon of much labor. 2. It lesssens the chances of rebellion. 8. It secures more satisfactory appointments. 4. It is safe, because the Bishop can annul any improper contract of this kind. 5. It gives all ministers an equal chance. 6. It stimulates both parties to make themselves desirable. 7. It has the authority of English Methodist osage.

One of the most difficult weeds to root out and keep out is the ox-eye daisy. It increases no m oy seeas ana roots, ana it is spreading rapidly all throueh the country. Yet there are some good farmers living in regions wbere the country is all white with them who have not a single plant of this weed on . their farms. Tlie remedies are summer fallow, rotation with frequent hoed crops, dense clover crorjs. and hand-pulling. If the first three are well attended to there will be compara tively little hand-work required. The clover must be sowed much thicker than common, say at least half a bushel per acre, on a well-prepared mellow surface. Country Gentleman. Early Feeding of Hogs. No ONE except he has had the exoeri. ence knows how important it is to begin early in the fall to feed hogs for market. even ii tne ratting process is intended to be kept op until late in the winter the feeding can be made profitable if the hogs are young, of a good breed and se lection. Continued profit, however, de pends wholly upon scientific knowledge md skill in the management, for it is well known that swine continue to thrive a certain length of time when fed in the ordinary way, and to feed differently the farmer must know how. By beginning to feed early, before the corn hardens, thts may be done without extra care. In fact the swine may with profit be turned into the field if not put on loa large a portion at once. It is necessary to bring them up to a full feed gradually, during a period of two or three weeks, before giving them a "gorge'! of the fresh ears, which is liable to founder them in such a manner that they seldom fully recover from it Early feeding adds flesh more rapidl than late and puts on a thick covering of fat during the warm weather to protect them durintr the colder season of winter. TIia early-fed corn being soft is easily digested and assists the fatting process greatly, as all know who have tried cooked food for stock. We have known many farmers to delay the feeding of their hogs until late in the fall, so that they inicht save their corn and hit a late market for their pork, j but we never knew one to secure the best results in that way. Grass is an excellent adjunct to corn as long as it is available. The exercise nec essary to get it is desirable to promote health and muscular development. Large and vigorous growth can be promoted in no other way. The flesh can be laid on in close confinement with profit if done quickly and the hog sent to the market before a retrograde movement cuts off the increasing weight We do not advise ex ercise after the animal becomes so bur dened with flesh as not to be able to move with a reasonable degree of effort, for at this stage of existence he is usually ap proaching very near the most profitable time to dispose of him. Will the readers of the Western Rural compare the income of the successful breeder with the hundreds who are not successful, and decide how necessary it is to think about the mannerof doing things? Western Rural. Plowing Heavy Land in Antnmn. The advantage incident to plowing heavy land once or twice in autumn often amounts to as much as would be derived from a light dressing of manure the next season without plowing the previous au tumn. When it is not impracticable for a farmer to plow his heavy land the plow ing should be done in the fall for planting and sowing the ensuing spring. The te nacity ot the soil may thus be temporarily broken up by the winter frosts, its parti cles more thoroughly separated and the whole mass reduced to a finer tilth than can possibly be effected in any other manner. There is a still further and im portant advantage from this practice, which ensues from the attraction existing be tween the clay and those gases that are furnished from the atmosphere, snow, rains and dews. In consequencef being thus thrown up and coming in contact with them, it seizes upon the ammonia and carbonic and nitric acids which are in the air, and Holds them for the future use of the crops; while their great affinity for manures effectually prevents the waste of such as are in it. If the land is in sod, the furrow slices of compact soils should be turned over so as to lap on the preceding and lie at an angle of forty-five degrees. This will al low of the furrows lying regularly and evenly, and in the proper position for the drainage of the soil, the free circulation of air, and' the -most efficient action of frosts, which in this way have access to every side of them. Land thus thrown up is found to be finely pulverized after the frosts leave it and it is comnarativelv dry and ready for use some time earlier than such as is not plowed till spring. f or sowing, land plowed in this manner requires no additional plowing, but it is better fitted for the reception of seed than it can be by any further operation, unless by a slight harrowing, if too rough. The different kinds of grain, or peas, may be sown directly upon the surface and cov ered by the harrow; and, if sown early, the grass and clover seeds require no cov ering, but find their best position in the slight depressions which are everywhere made by the frost and which the subse quent rains and. winds till ud and cover sufficiently fo secure a certain growth. If the land has " been previously cultivated (not mrswarrf), and is designed for plant ing, a stiff clay is sometimes ridired ud bv turning a doable furrow, one on each side and so close aa partial lv to laD noon a nar row and unbroken surface, thus leaving tne greatest elevations ana depressions which can conveniently be made with the piow. ine irosf and air, by this means, have a greater surface to act upon than is anoruea uy tnorougn, plowing, unless n be in a firm sod. which maintains its Dosi- tion without crumbling. The advantage of a dry surface and early working are equaiiy seenrea Dy uis latter memoa. ana. to prepare for planting, the furrows need only to be split by running a plow through their center, when they are ready for the reception of the seed. But let tillers of the soil bear in mind that it will be labor- lost to plow heavy land in which there is an excess of water. Let wet ground be drained thoroughly, then fall-plowing will prove to neaouoiy aavantaeeous. jV. jr. UeraiO. Setting Oat Strawberries. Somk are inclined to set out their straw berries in August and September. It is not the best time in this climate. May is a much better time, though it any small beds are needed, and the plants are near at nana, tney may be set at uis season. there are plenty ot rains. As a rule we advise only spring planting. We find some good hints in the New ork Tribune about making beds, which will apply either in spring or lull : 1 nere is not mucn danger of makine land too rich for strawberries, especially if it nas Deen cropped ior several years pre vious. Twenty-five tons of stable manure, however, ought to be a good dressing for an acre of sod turned under in the fall, and the fifty tons you have on band will proba bly oe sufficient lor ue two acres. 11 the plants do not trrow as raDidlv as desired then add ashes or ground bone, as a top dressing, as this is the best way to apply those materials. A dressing of lime ana ashes might be npplied with benefit in the spring, alter ue nrst plowing, say twenty bushels per acre of the first and five of the latter. These will aid u the decomposi tion of the vegetable matter in the soil, but add very little in ue way ot a fertilizer; out ue ashes ana ground bone may be ap plied with benefit and at any time of the year, but just alter ue rrutt is garnered in summer will give ue plants a vigorous start in the fall. The hoeing or cultivating will mix these materials into the soil deep enough to reach the roots, and do more good than to be plowed under deeply. A ion oi eiuer win not De too neavy a aress- If applied just before a shower there will be no danger of injuring the leaves of the plants." at. faui fumeer-jf rest. English Iyy. ' The use of English ivies for ' the nur- pose of decorating living-rooms is more extensive every year, and cannot be too highly commended. Being very -strong. they will live through any treatment; but siuay ueir peculiarities ana manifest willingness to gratify them and they will grow without stint Many houses are too not ior mem, as inacea tney are lor their owners. Neither plants nor people should have the temperature over sixty-five de grees i anrenneit. 1 axe care not to en feeble your ivies by excessive, watering or undue heat, and you will see they will not seem to mina wneuer ue sun shines on them or not, or in what position or direc tion you train them. Indeed, so much will they do themselves to render a room charming that we would rather have an unlimited number of them to draw upon than anything in nature or art. 1M you wish the ugly plain doors that shut off your tiny entry to be arched or curved, like those in the drawing-rooms of your richer 'neighbor? Buy a couple of oracKets, sucn as lamps lor the burning ot kerosene are placed in. and screw them in the sides of the door. Put in each a plant of English ivy, the longer the better; then train the plants over the top, against the sides indeed, any way your fancy dic tates. You need not buy the beautiful (but costly) pots the flower-dealer will ad vise; common glazed ones will answer every purpose, for, by placing in each two or three sprays of Coliseum ivy, in a month's time no vestige- of the pot itself can be discerned through their thick screen. . , The English ivy growing over the walls of a building, instead of promoting dampness, as most - persons would sup pose, is said to be a remedy for it, and it is mentioned as a fact that in a certain room where damp had prevailed for a length of time the affected parts inside had become dry when ivy had grown up to cover the opposite exterior side; The close, overhanging, pendant leaves pre vented the rain or moisture from pene trating the wall. Beauty and utility in. this case go hand in hand. Jtmmal of Horticulture. , .
