Vi:aKTA'ni,F, nlthoupli deficient In Bomo of tho nutritive properties which characterize, nnlninl food, are, noverthe- lea's, mi Important clement In dietary owing to the largo quantity of potash they contain. Bo Important is this fact, that a system of dietary In which fresh vegetables wcro excluded would not only entail tho loss of a very agreeable addition to our repasts, but, carried to excess, would bo productive of those all mcnts to which tho crews of vessels In long voyages wero formerly subject Now-a-days no vessel undertakes n long voyago without being supplied with limo or lemon Julco ; potatoes, cabbages carrots, and turnips are pressed into email spaco nnd rendered equally porta ble. With fresh nlr, nnlmal food, nnd a fair amount of vegetable nourishment, scorbutic affections are unheard of. Hut if n deficiency of cither of these requl Bitcs of health arises, skin complaints arc of common occurrence, to say notli Ing of tho wretched stato of health of which such appearances arc but tho out ward sign. Therefore, without abating the proportions of nnlmal food which are usually considered necessary, it is important so to blend animnl and vege table nourishment that, by their joint effect, tho balance of health may bo maintained. Albumon, fibrin, gelatin, cosoln, nnd fat arc generally found In nnlmal food; while sugar, starch, glu ten, and salts arc especially met with in vegetables. Speaking on this subject, in liis lectures on food, Dr. Lankcslersays; "You may find half a dozen children all exposed to the danger of scarlet fever; two take it; one dies, nnd the other four nro free; but the two that have caught the infection lmvo lived in such n way that their blood has readily taken in tho contagion, nnd the ono Hint has died has got into a condition which lias produced death. Again : Four men shall bo travelling outsido an omnibus; ono mny get acute inflammation of the lungs, another bronchitis, and the other two shall como off free. Was it the rid ing outsido the omnibus that caused the two to fall ill? No; it was tho state of their blood. They had lived somehow irregularly; their bodies had been de prived of their proper constituents. Jlenco the importanco of attending to these subjects thoroughly, not getting a little knowlcdgo of them, but a knowl edge of what Is necessary to the feeding of children and tho feeding of men." This knowlcdgo is at all times of im portance; nnd it is especially so to those who aro anxious to escape tho maladies to which the recurrence of Winter ren ders every ono more or less liable, and to thoso who arc no less anxious to avoid tho long doctor's bill which in many familias is also of annual occurrence. In tho Winter everything In tho form of fresh vegetables is extremely dear, and most people, from overlooking the importanco.of vegetable diet at that sea son, aro sparing of Its use. In tho Win tor, howovcr, fresh vegetables should not bo considered as mere luxuries, but as positive necessities; when they aro iu Duiwuu ii pruuuui. nuuseiieoper win inako them enter largely into tho suppl, of tho table. Grass jLnnil How to Improve It. IP you ask this question of many larmers tho only reply will ho break ui and sod down afresh. Others will hosl tato beforo giving this uniform answer, Tlioy will insist on looking at the land first, or at least will wish to know what is tho matter witli tho present grass crop, Is somo part of tho field mossy or bog, gy ? or does It grow certain coarse grass. cs, which imllcato tindtto moistttroat the bottom ? If so, their eyes will bo open ed, and thoy will reply, in medical lan Kiiago, that " underdrawing is lndictv ted." Nothing does tho land need so much as this; nothing will do it mate rial good until this is first attended to, Ploughing and manuring will bo nearly nil useless, so long as tho land is clogged with surface water. If this is not tho trouble, they will inqtilro whether foul weeils have got possession, to tho exelu slon of wholesome grasses. If not, but tho trouble is simply an impoverish ment of tlio surface by long cronpln thoy will ndvlso to scarify tho Hward in tlio Full witli a heavy harroy, tearing up tno mosses, ami disturbing tho soil a mile, bo-tliut It will receive fresh seed Then thoy will sow from ten to fifteen quarts per acre of clear Timothy and Ited-top, in equal parts, and cover tho samo wiui u light luu-row. Wo should liavo said,- too, thoy will apply tt good coat of old manure beforo tho seed-sow ing. In this way, repeating tho manur ing onco In two years, many a meadow or pasture ean bo brought up to a high Btato of productiveness. If, liowover, tho land is infested with white daisy, dock, or thlstlo, tho only way will bo to hrealc it up tJtoroughly, cultivate It five years with crops nnd grain, and finally boed down again. Mnnurhig-shotild go along with this cultivation, of course, When seeding down bo not sparing of need, but uso half a bushel of Timothy, and tho samo of Red-top. If Red clov er Is desired, it should not generally be towed until In the Spring, us it Is apt to Winter-kill, if our farmer Is n pro gressive man, perhaps lie will inquire whether tho grass crop could not be Im proved by irrigation. Wo bellevo that much is tr bo realized from this praetlco during tho next generation. Asparagus. Do not cut from a bed loss than threo years planted.

RISKS OF GREAT EATERS. uur.AT caters never live long. A vo racious appetite, so far from being a sign of health, Is n certain indication of disease. Somo dyspeptics nro nlwnys Hungry, nnd feel best when they are eat lug; butns soon ns they have finished eating thoy enduro tortures so distress lug In their nature as to make the tin happy victim wish for death. Tho ap petite of health is that which inclines moderately to cat when eating-time comes, and which, when satisfied, leaves no unpleasant reminders. Multitudes measure their health by tho amount they can cat ; and of any ten persons nine aro gratified at an increase of weight, when, in reality, any excess of fatness is, in proportion, decisive proof or existing disease, showing that tho ab sorbents of the system nro too weak to dischargo their duty ; and tho tendency to fatness, to obesity, increases until ex istence is a burden, and sudden death closes the history. Particular Inquiry will almost unva ryingly elicit tho fact that fat persons, howovcr rubicund and Jolly, nro never well, and yet they are envied. While great eaters nover live to an old nge, and nro never for ti .single day without some "symptom," somo feeling sufilclently disagreeable to attract tho mind's atten tion unpleasantly, small eaters, those who cat regularly of plain food, usually liavo no " spare fiesh," are wiry and en during, and live to an active old age. Remarkablo exemplifications of tiieso statements aro found in tho lives of cen tenarians of a past age. Galen, one of the most distinguished of tho ancients, lived very sparingly nfter tlio aire of twenty-eight, nnd died in ills hundred nnd fortieth year. Keitgern, who never tasted spirits or wine, and worked hard all his life, reached a hundred and eighty-five years. Jenkins, a poor Yorkshire fisherman, who lived on tho coarsest diet, was one hundred and sixty-nine years old when ho died. Old Parr lived to ono hun dred and fifty-three; his diet being milk, witey, sninu-ueer, and coarse bread. The favorite diet of Henry Francisco, who lived to ono hundred and forty, was tea, bread nnd butter, and baked apples. Ephraim Pratt, of Shutosbury. Sins.. who died aged one hundred and seven teen, lived chiefly on milk, and even that in small quantities; his son Mi chael, by similar means, lived to ono hundred and threo years. Father Cull, n uouiodisc clergymen, died last year at tho age of ono hundred and five,' the main diet of his life being salted swine's fiesh (bacon), and bread made of Indian meal. From these statements ninogen eral readers out of ten will jump to tho conclusion that milk is healthy, as aro oaiccd apples and bacon. These conclusions do not legitimately follow. Theonly inference that can safely bo drawn is from tlio only fact running through all these eases that plain food nnu a nio 01 steady labor tend to a great nge. As to tlio healtlifulnessnnd life-pro- '"K"K qumuios oi any article or diet named nothing ean be inferred, for no two of tho men lived on tho samo kind of food; all that ean bo rationally and safely said is either that they lived so long in splto of the quality of tho food they ate, or that their instincts called for n particular kind of food, and tho gratification of flint instinct, instead of its perversion, with a life of steady labor, directly caused liealthfuliiess nnd great longin oi nays. Wo must not expect to live long by doing any ono tiling which an old man did, andomittlngnll others, but by doing all ho did, and that is. Work steadily, ns well as eat mainly of u particular uiaii. ven," or view the fond parent hang over Its beauties, and half retain her breath lest she should break Its slumbers, with out n veneration beyond nil common feeling, is to be avoided In every inter course of life, and is fit only for tho sliatluw of darkness and solitude of the desert. It Is perhaps the privllego or woman only to extract the sting of grief from others, by the gentlu patience with which she i taught by nature to set the exaniplo of meek endurance. Her first step lir the career of duty Is generally by the bed of sickness or of buffering. 'J here she hushes helpless infancy to re pose, nnd to tho Infirmity of ago sup piles the sweetness of cheerful patience. It is her province to smooth tho angry passions ; to allay the violence of intem perate man ; to divert or sooth tlioquer ulousness of peevish, fretful tempers. It Is hew, In fine, to be a peacemaker on eartli ; and let her not disdain tills, her allotted career, nor ever swerve from it. It has not tho promlso of tho world's beatitudes or glories, but It is blessed, and It is glorious nevertheless ; and oh I above all, let not thoso who ought to cherish and foster these gentle virtues endeavor to stifle or eradicate them by substituting in their stead tho excite ments of frivolous vanities, and the empty cares of dissipation. FOR YOUTHFUL READERS. MATERNITY. Woman's charms aro certainly many and powerful.

This park is Killed by the people the Prater. It 13 full of lovely trees, splendid walks, and little rustic pleasure-houses. At the timo of which I am speaking there wcro pcoplo there, some young and some old, nnd mnnv strangers too. And all those who were there enjoyed such a sceno ns thoy had probably never beheld before He that ns it may, the Prater was almost covered with crowds of pcoplo. Among tho numbers wero tho organ-grinders, beggars, and girls who played on harps, There stood an old musician. He had onco been a soldier, but his pension was not sufficient to live on. Still ho don't liko to beg. Therefore on this partlctr lar festival day he took his old violin and played under an old tree in the park. He had a good faithful old do: along with him, which lay at his feet. nnd held nn old lint in his mouth, so mat passers-by might cast coins into it for tlio old man. On the day of the festival which I liavo now mentioned tho dog sat before him with tlio old hat. Many pcoplo went by and heard tho old musician playing, but they did not throw much in. I wonder tho pcoplo did not irive him more, for he was truly a pitiable object. His faco was covered with scars re ceived in his country's battles, and ho wore a long gray coat, such as he had kept ever since ho had been in tlio army. He even had bis old sword ).v hU nlde. and would not consent to walk the streets without his trusty friend with him. Ho bad only threo fingers on his right hand, so ho had to hold the bow of his voilln with thcne. A bullet had taken off tho two others, and almost at the samo time a cannon ball had taken off his leg. Tlio last money ho had had been spent, in buying new strings to his violin, and ho was now playing with all his strength tho old marches ho had so often heard when a boy with his father. Ho looked sad enough as ho saw the multitudes pitss by in their strength, youth, and beauty; but whenever they laughed it was like a dagger to his soul, for ho knew that on that very evening lie would have to go to bed suppcrless, hungry as he wa, and lio on a straw couch in a little garret room. Ills old dog was better off, for ho often found a bono hero and there, to satisfy his hun ger. rt was fate In tiie afternoon his hones wero uko tne sun, they were both going down together. Ho placed Ids old vio lin down by his side, and leaned against tree. 'I bo tears streamed down his scarred cheeks. Ho thought that none of that giddy throng saw him, but he was much mistaken. Not far off stood a gentleman in fine clothes, who had a kind heart. Ho listened to tho old mu sician, and when ho saw that no ono gave him anything, his heart was touch ed with sympathy. 1 lu finally went to tho dog, nnd looking at tlio hat saw only two copper coins in it. He then said to tho old musician, "My good friend, why don't you plav longer V" "Oli," replied the old man, "my dear sir, I cannot ; my poor old arm Is so tired that I cannot hold tho bow ; be sides I lmvo had no dinner, nnd havo nuio prospect ot supper." Tho old man wiped his feeblo hands, j-iiu Kinu gentleman with whom lie talked resolved to aid him as best ho couki. no gave him a pieco of gold, and said, " I'll pay you, if you will loan mo your violin lor ono hour." un," said tho musician, this pieco ui miHiey is worth more than n half uo;:en out iiddies liko mine.' Ing gentleman was playing for tho poor man, but none knew who ho was. lly and by tho people ln-gan to tlrop money Into tho hat, mid tho old dog seemed delighted to receive so many pieces of gold for his master. Tlio cir cle of hearers became larger and larger, liven the coachmen of tho splendid car riages begged the people. Inside to stop and hear tho music. Gold, silver, nnd copper were thrown Into the lint by the old and young. Tho old dog began to growl. What In the world could bo the matter'. One gentleman, as ho dropped a large piece of money into the lint, had struck him on tlio noo, and ho came very near letting the hat nnd money fall. Hut it soon became so heavy ho could not hold it any longer. " Empty your hat, old man," said the people, "nnd we will fill It again for you." Ho pulled out nn old hnndkerchicf, nnd wrapping the money in it, put It into his vlolin-bng. Tlio stranger kept on playing, and tho pcoplo cried out, "Uravo! bravo!" In great Joy. He played first ono tune and then another even the children seemed curried away with rapture. At last lie played that splendid song, "Uod bless tho limperor Francis!" All hats nnd caps Hew off their heads, for tho people loved their limperor. Tho song finally came to an end. Tho hour was ended, and the musician handed back the vio lin to the old man. "Thank you," said lie. "May Ood bless you!" and ho disappeared in tlio crowd. "Who Is he? Who Is ho?" said tl people. " Where does ho como from ?' A person sitting in ono of the coaches replied that he knew him. " It is Ale. under Boucher," Mild he, " tliegreat vio linlst. It Is just liko him ; lie saw that tho old man needed help, and ho dote mined to help him in tho best way he could." The pcoplo then gave three cheers for Alexander llouclier, and put money I tiie old man's hat. When ho went homo that evening ho was richer than lie had over been before. When he went to his bed ho foaled his hands and prayed that Clod might bless good llouclier,' so that When ho should get to bo an old man he might havo good and kind friends. Now I believe that there were tw happy men that night in Vienna. Of course tho poor old musician rejoiced now that ho was out of want ; but of more value to him than all his money w the consolation that somebody had nrov ed a friend to him. For it does us nil good to know that wo havo friends, if iney aro oi no lartncr advantage to us, There was another who was happy, and unit, was the good Alexander llouclier, How could he go to bed thnt night witl out thanking Clod for putting it into li heart to bo kind to the old, fricndle.- starving soldier? tend to men who play (at) studying they want thoso who work nt It. You may work up to as high or low n stand ard ns you please; but there must bo no falllngoff. our little accomplishments athletics, poetry, music, all done pretty well, with which you liopo to set off your feeble scholarship, will only bodes plscd, and you will bo recommended to confine yourself wholly to them, and give up all idea of scholarship, or else drop theiii. "Never mind," said tho gentleman, I only want to biro it an lumr-.o " Very well; you can do what you will," said tho owner. Tho gentleman took tho fiddle and lioiv In bid luiiwl ii ,, , ' '"""i im men said 10 tlio man, "Now, my mate, you tako tho money, and I will play. I am milt.. nuio puipiu win give us something." Now was not that a sinimliir m,,i. cal association ? Thoy had Just beeomo acquainted, nnd Immediately entered Into an arrangement to work together for tho public. This strango gentleman began to play. His mato looked nt him with great wonder; ho was so stirred thnt he could hardly beliovo that It was his old violin that such beautiful sounds camo from, livery note was liko a pearl. Tho first pieco hud not hpin fin. Ished before tho people, observing the strango slghl and hearing such wonder ful music, stopped a moment in curiosi ty, livery one saw that the llue-Joo!;. WHAT A VOLCANO IS LIKE Tin: imagination could almost In some tilings exaggerate the hurnliiL' of n irrc warehouse into the eruption of n vol cano; tho flames and the sniok-n nn there, and at tho moment when the roof talis in, tho perpendicular burst upward might, give a faint notion of the manner In which tlio liro shoots from tho crater nnd though there is no equivalent for tno cioio column of stones which thrown up in tho latter case, tho beams cast hither and thither might distinctl suggest the stray blocks which, instead of falling again into tho gulf, aro hurled outsido to distances sometimes small and sometimes great. Hut that for which i common if res there Is no analogy, how ever remote, Is tho regularity witl which the phenomena repeat themselve a regularity which suggests the Ide that there is a great system of arteries within tlio earth, filled with ruiinin fire in place of blood,and that ono of tho iirtencs lias been eaten into by tlio nro gross of some horrid superficial tumor, and that with every pulsation of the great heart of tho mountain its life spouts fortli through the wound, blood through tho cartorid artery of a man. A certain amount of fire, a cor tain number of stones, always issue from thecrater; hut oncou minute sometimes. sometimes oftener, a great gush leaps lor several hundreds ot feet into thoair, witli hardly any warning to tho eve. and sinks as suddenly again. It is then that tho larger stones aro dNgorgcd, In the miust ot a crowd of lesser ones, whlcl play up and down in tho flamo liko the balls of which street-acrobats keen five or six in tho air at once. If, however, these gushes tako place without much notice to tho eye, they nro preluded nt least to tho ear by a hoarse roar, liko that made when ilanio is horno along in n confined spaco by a flerco draft, except that it includes besido a noiso which is indescribable, but which declares itself at onco to bo that of the stones its they grind against ono another in their help- less rush to thesurface. Tho samo noise, but with nothing of volcanic vehemence, can oo neani when tlio stones of a beach aro drugged about by angry waves. STUDENT LIFE AT CAMBRIDGE. Tin: llfo of a Cambridge student (savs I'.vcrctt) is a hard one. It is no path of uowers; still les a bed of roses. Tlio scholars at Cambridge tiro hard-working men, laboring for dear llfo lo obtain prizes and honors offered, perhaps in tho rauo oi ono to every llvo competitors, Among thoso men there Is no nlaco for dabblers or dilettanti. With many of uiem incir livelihood as sclioolmasters or clergymen depends on their success in scholarship; with others their early Introduction into law or Parliament: and with all of them, that Is, all the ;ooU ones, it is a real paramount busi ness, tor of all things an linglishuian, and especially a Cantab, detests a .lurk. of-all-trndes a student who does a little classics and a llttio mathematics, a Ilttlo rowing or a Ilttlo debating.

A San Fuancisco editor says that when ho thinks of Ireland's woes his heart "goes pity Pat." Yot'xn gentlemen who would prosper in lovo should woo gently. It is not fashionable for young ladies to take in dent spirits. "Comi:, Rob, what did you clear by your speculation?" said a friend to Ids companion. "Clear," nnswered Rob, With a frown, " why, I cleared my pock !. It is far easier to detect error than to discover truth ; ono lies on flic surface and can bo easily discerned ; tho other lies deeply hidden, and few aro able to find it Old age Is never honored among us, but only indulged, as childhood Is ; and old men lose ono of tlio most precious rights of man that of being Judged by their peers. ahi" said a conceited young par son, I have tills forenoon been preach ing to a congregation of asses." " Then that was the reason you called them be loved brethren," replied a strong-minded lady. Hoiini: Tooick returned his income at sixty pounds a year; the commission ers said they were not satisfied. Homo looke, in reply, said ho had much more reason to bo dissatisfied with the small ness of his income than they had. A cj:i.i:ih!atj:l composer wrote to a friend, requesting the pleasure of his company "to luncheon; key of 6." His friend, a thorough musician, inter preted tho invitation rightly, and camo to tlio composer's house for a luncheon at one sharp. A .man got tipsy and indulged in a night's sleep in a country grave-yard. On opening his eyes in tho morning, lie noticed the motto on a grave-stone: " He is not dead, but slccpeth." "When I am dead, ho remarked, with great de liberation, " I'll own up, and have no uch statement as that above my car cass." O.vn of tho daily papers says:' "On Sunday last John Travis, the notorious pistol shooter and sporting man, eloped from Saratoga with a daughter of a gen tleman oi that place, wlioso age is re ported about fifteen." If tho gentle man's ago was only about fifteen, how very youthful his runaway daughter must be ! Tim misery of being called noon sud denly to make an extempore speech was once got over by a noted English math ematician, who delivered himself in this fashion : " Gentlemen, a morbid do- sire for originality prevents mo from say- inis is tno proudest moment of to my life,' and it does not occur to me say anything else."
