TREATMENT OF YOUNG PIGS.
I believe it is a rnle with stock men, tliat it is easier to "keep" animals up to a cer tain point of thriftness, than, to "get" them up to it after they fall away. I find it not easier, but much cheaper. As young pigs immediately after being taken from the sow, often fall away, and sometimes get ruaDgy, which is also an evidence they are not doing well, I give the readers of your val uable journal my mode of management. In the first tplace, at least two weeks before they are taken off the mother, and which is also a great relief to her, I give them a chance to eat by themselves. A small hole under the gat-; or fence allows the young pigs to creep through to an adjoining smail enclo sure, where I leave them to cat milk, pota toes boiled, corn or mush, apples, or a little whole grain. A pig's stomach is of the composite order; it will hold and likes va riety. A hunk of cracklings, to'begtat the soap-boiler's, broken off, boiled and mixed with the potatoes or mush, i- greatly relish o 1 odfeasionally. To make pigs thrive, the feeder must take an interest in them —watch their progress from day to day ; see what tbev relish, giv ing them always enough, but never allowing them to leave any. Keep their appetites always whetted up. M hen the mother is I finally taken away, they hardly miss her, >tad go on thriving without interruption. What is called mange results either front heat of too many being together, or else from insufficient food. It can be eared by removal of these two causes, and giving a thorough washing all over with soap-lather and tepid wafer—especially behind the ears. Till very cold weather, give no straw, or i! any is allowed, change it frequently. Not!) ing contributes more to mange in hogs than dirty straw. Sweep out thoroughly the plank floor, on which alone hogs should be allowed to sleep, snd whitewash the sides and corners. Boil or steam small potat s, pumpkins, squashes, cabbage, turnips, also meal, and feed the young growing pigs with them. Give thein access to charcoal aud occasional ly wood ashes, as an a pp. tizer, and there is no difficulty in making money out of pork. I consider any thing fed to hogs rair, as half wasted. By use of a Prind'e steamer, the nutritious elements of food are devel oped, and fifty per cent, saved of everything consumed; of which is about the same thing, fifty per cent, of nutriment added. Mr. Editor, I am cot rich in this world's goods, and steam my hog food becau.-e I j cannot afford to do otherwise. I have some rich neighbors whose farms are twice the -izs of mine, and they feed whole corn on the ear. When I get clear of mortgagr s I can do the same. J. WARE. Lebanon Co.. P. COMPARATIVE* VALUH OF HAY, CORN AND ROOTS. An acre of ground ret lined expressly for hay yields on the average not more than one half ton of vegetable food ; an equal space planted with carrots of ruta bags? wili yield from ten to twenty tons, (say fifteen tons,) which is by no means a high average, and has often been attaiued without any extra ordinary cultivation. It has been ascer tained by careful experiment that three working horses, fifteen and one half hands high, consume hay at the rate of two hun dred nounds per week, or five tons and one thousand and forty-eighi-poundsper annum. By repetition of the same experiment it was found that an unwoiked horse consumes hay at the rate of four and one quarter tons per annum. The produce, therefore, of nearly six acres of land is necessary to support a work ing-Lorse for one year; but half an acre of! carrots fat six hundred bushe's per acre) | wiib the addition of choked sLa.v, while the season for them lasts, will do as well, if not better. These things do not admit of doubt; they have Lien the subject of exact j trials, a- some of our agricultural ft n 'sriui testify. It has also been proved that tin: value cf one bushel of corn, together with the fodder upon which it g v, will k op a horse iu good working . .dor for a week. An acre planted wit! corn, and yielding - : xly bash els, will be ample to keep a good'sized horse in working order for one year. Let the farmer, then, consider whether it is better to maintain a hon-e on iLe produce of half an acre of ruta-bag.as or eanots, or upon the proi'.uc of an acre of coin, or, on the other hand, up n the hay and grain from six acres of g< off land to picducc the neces sary hay an'j grain as above. The same reasoning might bo made u- of in the feed ing of cattle and sheep.— Stock Journal. 'VI OF THE I 'EET. —Uooct rning this subnet (he Scientific American very truly say.-: "Many are careless in. the keeping of, the feet. If they wish them once a week they think they arc doing well. They do not j con.-ider that the largest pores of the sys- j tern are located in the bottom of the f ot, I and that the most offensive mat'er is dis- ] charged through the pores. They Wear ! stockings from the beginning to the end of j the week without change, which become completely saturated with offensive matter. lii health is generated by such treatment of the Let. Ihe pores are not repdlan':- but absorbents, and this fetid matter, too great er or :ess extent, is taken back into the sys tem. The feet should be washed every day with pure water only, as well as the armpits, i from which an offensive odor isalso emitted, unless daily ablution is practiced. .Stock ings should not be worn more than a day or two at a time. They may be worn one day, and then aired and sunned and worn anoth er day, if necessary." HEALTH.—If inen gave three times as much attention as they do to ventilation, ab lution, and exorcise iu the open air, and onlv one-third as much to eating, luxury and late hours, the number of doctors, dentists, and apothecaries, and the amount of neuralgia, dsspepsia, gout, fevers and consumption would be obaoge-J in a corresponding ratio. Tnx most easily digested articles of food as yet, known are sweet apples baked, cold raw cabbage sliced in vinegar, and boiled rice; the most indigestible are suet, boiled cab' age and pork; the former require an hour, the latter five.

A GENTLEMAN the othor evening, objected to playing whist with a lady because, be said, she bad such a "winning" way about her.' A FOPCLAR French author writes in his last novel: "The countess fell back in a deadly swoon. When she revived her spirit bad fled." ONE mau reprimanding another, said that he talkad like a fool. "True," ho replied, "but it is that you may understand me."

SAID an asironomer to a bright-eyed girl, when talking of rainbows: "Did you eversee a lunar bow, miss?" "I have seen beaux by moonlight, sir. if that's what you mean," was the sly rejoinder. "SAMMY, run to tljp'store and get some su gar." "Excuse me, MA; I'm somewhat in disposed this morning. Send father, and tell bim to bring a peper of tobacco along.' "CAN you tell me bow old the devil is ?" asked an irreverent fellow of a clergyman, "My friend, you must keep your own family record," was the reply. OI "devil" says it is all a mistake about tbe leopard not being able to change his spots, because if he gets tired of one spot he goes to another. A Shoemaker with one eye, complained that one of his lamps did not burn. One of his (■hopm&L.es, who is a genuine son of tbe Emerald Isle, with astonishment, exclaimed; "Faith, what do you want of two lamps? You bavn't but one eye!" "So you're going to keep a school?" said a young lady to her old aunt. "Well, for my part, sooner than do that., I would marry a widower with nine children." "I should prefer that myself," was the quiet rejijv ; "but where is tbe widower?" A Young mother has written a poem on "Baby," the third stanza of which has been much admired. It runs : "Doxery doodle um dinkle um dum, Turn to its muzzery muzzery mum ; Tizzery izzery boozery boo, No baby so sweet and so pooty as 00. ' IT is sad to witness the propensity shown, even in the very young, to break tbe laws of meum and teum. We saw a little rogue the other day, bareiy two years of age, (ab! you may stare 1) who had his father's eyes and bis mother's nose and chin. A HANDSOME young lady was observed to be in deep reflection on her wedding day. One of her bridesmaids asked her the subject of her meditations. "I was thinking," she replied, which of my old beaux I should mar ry if I became a widow." A THREE year old boy of a Piltsfield cler gyman. watching his mother making biscuit one Sunday for tea, asked her if it was not ! wicked to work on Sunday. Of course she j said it v.as, and the logical little fellow con ! tinued, " 'Oo'LL catch it when 'oo get to heav- Ax Irishman entered a barber-shop, ate with a brash the Cap of lather, dug out the ball of soap at the bottom of the cup, ate that and sat down to warm bis feet.

WHEX I-nac Hopper, a member of the So ciety of Friends, met a boy with a dirty face or hand.-, he would stop him and inquire if he ever studied chemistry. The boy, with a wondering stare, would answer "No." "Well then, I'll teach thee how to perform a curious chemical experiment"' said Friend Hopper. "Go home, lak a piece of soap, put it in water, End rub it briskly on tby bands and face. Thou bast no idea what a beauti ful froth it will make, and how much whiter thy skin will be. That's a. chemical experi ment: I advise thee to try it." AN elder of the Methodist Conference in Ohio, who is blessed with large feet, relates the following at his own expense : Stopping i one night at the house of a sister, he over- ! heard her in the morning, before he arose, I instructing her boy to black the elder's boots, i The boy urged as en objection that it would : "take all day to get around." Finally, yield ing to her entreaties, and taking one in each hand, he hauled them across the floor shout ing, "Wha! gee round here, tanyard."

What heresy ! exclaimed the old lady, and fainted. Da.N'IEI. O'CoXNEJJ. AcXXOWI.EDGING THE Coax.—There is a story told of the First Lib erator which is not unworthy of being record ed. The great Daniel when taking a saunter ing ride in the neighborhood of his house at Caherciveen had occasion to ask an urchin to open the gate for him. The little fellow complied with much alacrity, and looked up with such an honest pleasure at rendering tho slight service, that O'Connell byway of say ing something—anything—asked: "What*B your name, boy?" "Daniel O'Connell, sir," replied he, stout ly. "And who's your father?" demanded the astonished liberator. "Daniel O'Connell, sir." O'Connell muttered a word or two below his breath, and then added aloud—"When I see you again I wiil give you sixpence." Riding briskly on, he soon forgot the inci dent, and fell to thinking of much graver matters, when, after some miles of way, he found his path obstructed by some fallen tim ber, which a boy was stoutly endeavoring to remove. On looking more closely, he dis covered it to be the same he had met in the morning. "What!" cried he; " how do yon come to be here now?" "You said, sir, the next time you seen me I you'd give me sixpence," said the little fel- I low, wiping the perspiration from his brow. "Here it is," said Daniel; "yon are my goo, I the devil a doubt of it"— Cornelius O'Voted. PiTTSBURGH COMMERCIAL DAILY AND WEEKLY.—IB7O As a thorough newspaper, sparing neither la bor nor expenses to iurnish the fullest and most reliable intelligence ; as the fearless, consistent, and persistent opponent of corruption in office and advocate of Honesty, Economy, Rt-reneh meni and Reform in public affairs; as the sworn foe of "Rings" and every description cf dishonest combination, —just as ready to expose their prac tices in the Republican as Democratic party, and even more so, because it hold# that a party that will cast out offenders of this description entitles itself to the confidonce of the people—as an Inde pendent Republican journal, the advocate of the rights and in tercets of tho people,—Tan PITTS BI KH UOMMKBCIAI needs no new introduction to the reading public. IT IS A PROGRESSIVE PAPER, and keeps up in the march of improvement end the develop ment of ideas. Thoroughly alive to everything that is valuable or i nteresting, it identifies itself at once and heartily with whatever seems calcu lated to improve mankind and elevate the stand ard of intelligence and morality. As a Kepuhli. can journal of the strictest sect, it deals with political questions with an earnest wish to get at tho truth and place only good and capable weu in office. IT IS A PEOPLE'S PAPER, and relies on their snpport and good opinion rather than the favors of political leaders. Nor has it. done so in vain. Its independent cour9e---more especially in denouncing legislative corruption and expos ing the practices of thieves in office—has made it the favoiite of the masses and the feared of dishonest aspirants and debauched party leaders. Of the reputation it has earned in this respect it is sincerely proud; and it wishes no different standing in the field of journalism in this regard than a discriminating public promptly accord to it. To prove faithlul to their confidence wnd good opfuion will be its constant endeavor. IT IS A LIVE PAPER, and ranks with the leading journals which arc thoroughly awake to all that is going on. Its News Department is al ways fresli and full. Its editorials are written with u purpose in view. Its Market Reports and Commercal News gatherings are meant to supply the must exfu-ting demand? of the business public. IT IS A PROSPEROUS AND GROWING PA- Pr-R, having from the start gone ahead, outstrip ping older occupants of tho field of journalism ; and it has attained to a prosperity and come to exert an infldinco second to no paper in the State. That it has fairly won the rank of the first paper in Pennsylvania is the verdict of news ! paper readers in general. IT IS A PAPER OF INFLUENCE, it being read more generally than any other Pittsburgh paper by the business, professional and thinking classes. It is always found where the latest and fullest news is sought, and an independent paper prized,—in Backing Houses, Countiag Rooms and the Family Circle, where it is welcomed as a business and intellectual necessity, and where its influence is constant and increasing. ITS PAST COURSE IS ITS BEST RECOM MEXDATION, and it is felt that there is no nec essity for indulging in new proles-ions or making fresh promises. It means, while adhering to its standard in politics and mora!?, to improve as it progresses, and omit nothing that will add to its strength or increase its usefulness. THE NEXT YEAR. THE COMMERCIAL enters on another year strong and hopeful, and with a deliberate purpose con sbtent with what has been said above. And it does not hesitate to ask the co-operation of all who approve of that purpose. No hesitation is felt in saying that it desires this support in in creasing its circulation and enlarging the sphere of it 3 usefulness. The season is at hand when Congress and the Legislature will be in session, and stirring events at both the National and State Capita! will be transpiring. The measures of the splendid administration of General Grant win soon be before the country—embracing ques tions of the deepest interest to every reader and tax-payer. The State Legislature, too, will pre sent matters of interest.
