C, For the Democrat The Lost JIate. I now am like the lonesome ilove That lost a cherished mate, That soars aloft, from vale to vale, Her sorrows to relate. I've lost a loved and cherished wife, And now must lirealenc While none can tell ihe woes UM grief, Or know the loss 1 mourn. Thou art none, my precious jewel, Thv kind ant! mentis soul has tied To clime. where innoeerce and truth Their grateful fragrance ever shed. Why should I weop. lament or sigh, Or wish her back airain ? She's gone to Jesus Christ on high With him in heaven to reign. We'll nieet airain on bless'd shore, Freed from the tempter's arts and wiles; Where till! ol joy we'll part no more From thy sweet lips and rosy smiles. Remember friends, when you draw near, And stand around her tomb. While on her grave you drop a tear She's in a happier home. Sor.n will my sorrows all be o'er, Then I can sweetly tell, On Canaan's cairn and pleasant shore, That all at last was well. J. r. r... 'J'jie mother's Defence.

To insure the greatest yield ol milk from a cow, j she should not only be weil fed and well tended, but also well milked. Now it is not every man or every maid, who can squeeze fluid from a cow's udder, that is a good milker. It is important, in the first place, that a cow's bag should be clean. For this purpose, when the 1 1 animal is stabled as they are, or should be, during ; me winter, on an larms, and throughout the year uy many let the whole udder he washed with ! cold water, and immediately thoroughly dried with t ni . ..... . a mwei. me advantages ot th.s practice to the health of the animal and the healthiness oi the milk are great and manifest ; and in this way, too, we escape the black sediment of which milk-buy- j era so constantly complain, and which is nothing else than small narticles rf manure, hn.ahfd frnm , .

The same process obviates, too, the supposed necessity of moistening the teats by milking a tine stream into the hands and wash ing the teats therewith a tiiy practice followed by almost all men and too many women. The udder being now cooled and cleansed, we are ready to begin milking.

Mr. Craige cailed Mr. Hunt to order. Mr. Hunt expressed surprise. Mr. Craige sad he called the genth mar. to order oecause ho regarded him n faction ist. Mr. Hunt had nrevious- ly denied in his place that ho was a factionist, and . intimated thai he would not permit the term to be j applied to him. His rejoinder to Mr. Craige was, I the gentleman intended to ft 'igmatize. him ns a fuctionist, then it was a falsehood.'1 If Mr. Craigo J a'd intend to stigmatize ilr. Hunt ns n lactionist, !
