Where in the whole range of poetic literature,
it there a picture of Winter and Famine, more
graphic than this from Longfellow's "Hiawatha T
O, the long and dreary Winter!
0, the cold and crnel Winter!
Ever thicker, thicker, thicker
Froie tle ice on hike and river,
Ever deeper, deeper, deeper
Fell the now over the landscape,
Fell the covering "hot, and drifted
Through the foret round the village.
Hardly from hi bnried wigwam
Could the hauler force its passage,
With hi nr.ltens and hi snow shoes
Vainly walked he through the forest,
Sought for bird or beast, an ! found none,
Saw no track of deer or rabbit,
In the mow beheld no footprint?,
In the ghastly gleaming foret
Fell, and could not ri e from weakness,
Ferkbed there from cold .ind hanger.
0, the &uiine and the fever!
O, the wasting of the famine!
O, the blasting of the fever!
O, the wailing of the children!
O, the anguish of the women!
All the earth was sick and fanwriwd;
Hungry was the air around them,
Hungry was the sky above them,
And the hungry itars in heaven
Like the eye if wolves glared at them!

Arc lines in season by Tno's E. Vox Bebbek:
What a night! Sittings white,
Smooth as down of feathery pillow,
Jwiseless drop o'er oui and willow.
Soft an3 slow fulls the snow.
Far aa-ny as the eye can follow,
O'er IaII hill and sleepy hollo.
Old barn roof stand aloof.
Glimmering ever white and whiter,
Though night has not a star to l!ght ier.
On all streams, like smooth dream',
When they come dull cares to banish.
Ermine flakelets melt and vanl-h.
By carp'd stack, hoofed track
Marks the 8jt, where, cold and co'.Jir,
Cattle drowse, with whitened shouMer.
Found the hearth ruddy mirth
Calls joy's snowy wings to wad her,
Calls on merriment and laughter.
rtright and warm 'midst the storm,
A fairy fire ou'side the s:ihes
In mimic splendor sparks and flashes.
Sweet, 0 sweet, for friends to meet,
To catch the play of shifting graces
Charactered on many faces.
O.the night? Virgin white
He all thought, all hopes, ail fancies,
All piiiow'd dreams, ail waking trances.
Our readers probably remember Mish
ka Ilauer and his Tahitian Concert ; we
have now from his pen the following
fketch of his Australian Adventures :
It took us five dreary weeks to reach
Port Jackson from Tahiti. Dense mit
covered the beautiful bay when we ar
rived on the 25th of November, but the
rays of the risinz sun soon dispelled it.
aud we beheld Svdney with delightful
Furprise rising, like the fata morgana,

villus are dotted over the shores ; proud
eteamers and innumerable ships,gi i'y dis
playing the flags of all the sea-faring na
tions, floating on the waves ; and on the
landing place there is a concourse of men
of different races clu.-tering ai.d moving
like bees. Sydney is the centre of the
commerce of the Pacific ; it is the seat of
the government of New South "Wales,
hits large public buildings, three theaters,
many bank-", an orphan asylum, a philo
sophical and an agricultuaal .-otiety, a
topographical bureau, several hospitals,
schools, and even a university and ob
servatory. All the Greets, as well as the
dials of the docks, are lighted with gas ;
the brick-houses, of light structure, look
comfortable ; the paving is tolerably good;
whil.-t a motley crowd of Eurojiaus,
Chinese, Papuans, and Malays, in pic
turesque altire, enlivens the novel scene.
Several Germans called on me soon
nfU-r my arrival : they had seen my name
in the papers ; and sinee in a foreign
country it is plea.-ant to meet even with

The Botanical Garden the Hyde
Park of Sydney is dreary and dusty,
since the dry season, lasting eight months
in the year, destroys the vegetation, and
produces clouds of sand and dust. Two
rows of stiff gum-trees form a long avenue
leading into the Garden, filled with the
fashionables of Sydney. Seated on chairs
and benches, we see ladies who have Ion"
ago passed the summer-solstice of their j
life: these centres of attraction are sur-

A ftw day3 after my arriyal.1 paid rnv
visits to the different editors of Svdney. '
At my first eaiL I came to a palace-like
house, the ground-floor occupied by the
printing-office. Oa the first floor, among
other advertisements, I found a tablet, int
forming visitors that the editor cannot be
spoken with unless paid for his valuable
time : accordingly, everybody without ex
ception is advised to buy a ticket of ad
mission at the door of the waiting room
one hour costing 10s. ; half an hour, 6s. ;
fifteen minutes, 3s Such were the con!
tents of tills singular price-current of time.
I went into the waiting-room, and buying,
from the Australian negro, in red livery
an hour of his master's time. I ent'
the parlor with a strong feeling of curi
osity. The editor received me in a very
unprepossessing and sluggish manner.
"You are an anl-t, and come from Eu

The other editors were less rapacious and
more friendly : they gave me, indeed, tlie
best advice about my concerts. The costs
are enormous, but so are likewise the
prices of tickets: a bos, L.5 ; stalls, L.2;
Plj On the whole, however, my
prospects were far from promising,
could not feel sympathy with the popu
lation of Sydney, and did not expect to
meet with any from them. Everybody
here being immersed in the cares of profit
and loss, is cold and reserved, and in so
ciety dull and stupid. Political meetings

The Papuans are probably the dirtiest

The editor of the Michigan Fanner has
been experimenting on corn and cob meal
as horse feed for a couple of months ex
clusively, and with the following results.
After one month's feeding, febrile symp
toms were occasionally observed in one of
the horses, such as short and quick breath
ing, &c. On stating the case to Dr. Dadd,
the celebrated veterinary surgeon of Bos
ton, it elicited the following valuable let
ter. The importance of occasional change
of food, which it recommends, is not suf
ficiently attended to by farmers in feeding
their stock.
As regards your horse, (if he is better.)
I would change the diet immediately.
He is probably suffering from acute, per
haps chronic indigestion, which is very
apt to occur in animals when kept too
long on one kind of diet. It fails to sup
port nutrition. See Liebig and Car
pender." The animals experimenting
upon, after a certain length of time, seem
ed willing to endure starvation, rather
than live on any one kind of diet. As re
gards the adult horse, however, he will
exist for some time on highly nutritious
articles, such as oats, barley, corn, Sec,
but finally induce diseases, such as lamin
itis, rhumatism, founder, Sec. They do
not require so much of the flesh making
principle as the young and growing ani
mal, which not only requires sufficient
carbon in the form of food to renovate the
tissues, but also enough for growth and
development The adult, however, re
quires a greater variety of food than the
latter, to support the integrity of its or
ganization ; consequently, as you have fed
your horse on corn and cob meal all win
ter, there may be disproportion between
the amount of carbon, (in the form of
food) and the oxygen respired ; hence his
digestion must be deranged, or carbon (in
the form of fat) deposited in the various
tissues. A fat horse, of course, as you
are aware, is not the one for fast work or
fatigue, and the emaciated excepted, is
more likely to be come sick from the least
exciting cause. On the other hand, an
excess of carbonaceous material deraner.
ing the stomach it holding sympathetic
relation with the brain is apt to termin
ate in the staggers, Sec It should be
known to horseman that an adult horse
should not increase in weight from year
to year ; the food may be proportioned to
work, any increase in flesh or fat is a sig
nal to dip a lighter hand in the meal bai
that is if you want to keep disease and
death at bay. It pays to fatten cattle,
sheep, and swine, because the result is
dollars and cents ; but you may depend it
is a losing spec to fatten horses ; for
among such I have the most practice,
their disease being more difficult to con
trol than when occurring in others, in
fair working order. As regards corn and
cob meal, I think it operates injuriously
on a great many horses. In the first
place they do not always masticate it
properly ; it being soft and easily sali
vated, they are apt to bolt it, as the say
ing is. In order to obviate the difficulty,
the meal ought to be mixed with eut hay
or straw, articles that must be masticated
ere swallowed. Should the digestive or
gans be deranged, meal ferments very
rapidly, inducing flatulency. I should
not object to giving a horse a feed of corn
meal occasionally, mixing it with cut hay
and a little salt. Salt is a good anti-spep-tic,
prevents fermentation; affords by the
decomposition in the stomach, muriatic
aeidand soda, aids digestion, and pre
vents the generation of worms. The best
remedies for restoring digestive functions
are: Powdered salt, 8 ounces; powdered
grng! r, 1-4 ounce; powdered charcoal, 1
ounce. Mix, divide into eight parts, and
give one with the food night and morning.

Hess must be kept wabm in Wix-TEii.-I
saw an account of 27 hens kept last
winter in an open shed, where they laid
52 dozen eggs in four months. Now, it
is my humble opinion, that if they had
been kept in a warm place they would
have laid still tetter. Last winter I had
24 hens a part of the time, but about the
middle of winter killed off 5; I kept
them in the basement of a barn, fed them
with all the screenings they could eat,
with occasionally a little corn, and in four
months they laid 70 dozen eggs. I had
some Burmahs, some common, and the
rest were common crossed with Shang
hai. My hen3 laid more eggs last winter
than they do this spring, because now
they are very much inclined to set.

TIIHIS article has been tested
A by the best judges, and pro
nounced superior to anythingoi
the kind in the market" It i n;
only gives a clear polish to fe
linen, but obviates many di
cnltics to which laundresses ar
WAvJ subject. It prevents the starcfe
li)rfi-M1 from sttf-feiniT tn thn i.v, ...
'causes the linen tn rot.,;., ;t,
stiffness. Another important advantage is, tk
by using the Polish articles can be starched in ei
ther cold or boiled starch, and iron inrmediate't
without the unfavorable results which usnafe
follow by the ordinary manner. Price! only Si
cents, in large bottles.
