During an excursion, I learned that a burrow, or village, as it was termed, of prairie dogs had been discovered upon the level summit of a hill, about a mile from the camp. Having heard much of the habits and peculiarities of these lit tle animals, I determined to pay a visit to the community. The prairie dog is, in fact, one of the curiosities of the Far West, about which travellers delight to tell marvelous tales, endowing him at limes with something of the political and social systems of civil government and domestic economy, almost equal to what they used to bestow upon the beaver. The prairie dog is an animal of the cony kind about the size of the rabit. He is of a very sprightly, mercurial na ture, quick, sensitive, and somewhat pet ulent. Is very gregarious, living in large communities, sometimes of several acres in extent, where innumerable little heaps of earth show the entrance to the subter ranean cells of the inhabitants, and the well beaten tracks, like lanes and streets, show their mobility and restlessness. According to the accounts given of them, they would seem to be continually full of sport, business and public affairs ; whisk ing about hither and thither, as if on gossiping business to each other's houses, or congregating in the cool of the evening, or after a shower, and gamboling togeth er in the open air. Sometimes espe cially when the moon shines they pass half the night in revelry, barking or yelp ing with short, quick, yet weak tones like those of very young puppies. While in the height of their playfulness, and clamor, however, should there be the least alarm, they all vanish into their cells in an instant, and the village re mains blank and silent. In case they are hard pressed by their pursuers, without any hope of escape, they will assume a pugnacious air, and a most whimsical look of impertinet wrath and defiance. Such ars a few of the particulars I could gather about the habits of this lit tle inhabitant of the prairies, who, with his pigmy republic appears to be a sub ject of much curious speculation and bur lesque remark, among the hunters of the West. It was towards evening that I set out with a companion to the village in ques tion. Unluckily, it had been invaded in the course of the day by some of the rangers, who had shot two or three of its inhabitants, and thrown the whole sensi tive community into contusion. As we approached, we could perceive numbers of the inhabitants seated at the entrance of their cells, while sentinels seemed to be posted on the outskirts to keep a look oat. At the sight of us the picket guards scampered in and gave the alarm, where upon every inhabitant gave a sharp yelp or bark, and ran in his hole, his heels twinkling in the air, as if he had thrown a summerset. We traversed the whole village, or re public, which covered an area of about thirty acres, but not a whisker of the in habitants was to be seen. We probed their cells as far as the ramrods of our rifles would reach, but in vain. Moving quietly to a little distance, we laid down upon the ground and watched for a long time, silent and motionless. By and bv a cautious old burgher would slowly put forth the end of his nose, but instantly draw it baek again. Another, at a great er distance, would emerge entirely, but catching a glance of us, would throw a summerset, and plunge back again into his hole. At length, some who resided on the opposite side of the village, taking courage from the continued stillness, would steal forth and hurry off to a distant hole, the residence, probably, of some family connection or gossippiug friend, about whose safety they were solicitous, or with whom they wished to compare notes about the late occurrences. Others still more bold, assemble in little knots in the streets and public places, as if to discuss the re cent outrages offered to the common- wealth, and the atrocious murderers of their fellow burghers. We rose from the ground, and moved ed forward to take a nearer view of these public proceedings, when yelp! yelp! yelp! there was a shrill alarm passed from mouth to mouth ; the meeting sud denly dispersed ; feet in a twinkling ia the air in every direction, and in aa in stant all had vanished into the earth. The dark of the evening put an end to our observations, but the train of whim sical comparisons produced in my brain, by the moral attributes which I had heard given to these little politic animals, still continued afr my return to camp ; and late ia the night, as I lay awake after all the camp was asleep, and heard in the stillness of the hour, a faint clamor ofyeUW 43 rich tLe gl&g shrill voices from the village, I could not help picturing to myself the inhabitants gathered together in noisy assembly and windy debate, to devise plans for the pub lic safety, and to vindicate the invaded rights and insulted dignity of the repub lic CsT" Happiness can be made quite as well of cheap materials as dear ones INHABITANTS OF FLORIDA. "Alligators, as may be inferred from the number shot in one day at the pond of that name, are very numerous ; every mud hole, swamp, pond or river, is in fested with them. The animal is too well known to require a minute descrip tion ; they vary from two and a half to ten feet in length. One of medium size, say five feet, has a mouth ten or twelve inches wide, and sixteen or eighteen long, shaped like a shovel ; its eye when an gry is very terrible, and has the most horrid expression of fury I ever witnessed in any animal ; such aa one as no de scription reminds me of, unless it be that awful leer which beamed from the eye of the Arch Enemy, at that moment of pe culiar excitement which Milton deline ates with such masterly power, when he rallies his dispirited hosts under his infer nal banner and marches them up in glit tering array against the army of the liv ing God. The tail which is nearly equal in length to the body, has a serrated ap pearance, and when enraged he thrashes it with great violence, a single blow be ins sufficient to break both of a man's legs at once ; they are amphibious, and when on the ground move sluggishly on four legs. The general appearance of the animal is disgusting ; although they are so abundant and possessed of great power, I have never heard of but two in dividuals being attacked by them, and they have frequent opportunities if so disposed. I have frequently been a swimming when I knew many were about. The extent of their mischief is confined to now and then seizing a fa vorite do?. As for frogs and bull-paddockg, whew ! they are without beginning or end ! AH sorts and kinds of soil produce them in quantities which no man can number. An intelligent traveler not long since es timated them at forty bushels to the acre. I never measured one, but think his esti mate too low ! Of a summer's 3ay or night, they make such a racket as almost to craze one : this reminds me of a story of Lieut. Chubb's about frogs." He said, " Some years since an invalid came to St. Augustine, and started for Talla hassee on horse-back ; the man wasn't one of the strongest of nerves, and he had hardly got out of town before he asked his guide, what made such a racket? He told him "frogs." "Frogs!" says the man, " then let us ride on, and get out of this vicinity, for they will turn my brain." " 'Tis no use to ride, sir so all the way," said the fellow. " The man didn't dizactly believe that, so on he rode ; by'me by, the guide said, his eyes began to glare, and he stared wildly round for a moment, and then clapping spurs to a high spirited horse he was on, galloped off at full speed, the guide after him; but twa'nt no use, he could'nt catch him; giving up the chase he jogged along, and about four o'clock, came up, and there was the horse, dead in the road, and the man settin' on him j pounding away with a great stick, spur-1 ring, and making all the motions of one riding for his life. The noise of the tar nal frogs had addled his brains, and he carried him back to St. Augustine, a per fect maniac" There are two kinds of rattle-snakes, the large, and small or ground rattle, the bite of both-is venomous, and that of the large will produce sudden death when it strikes an artery an ordinary flesh wound may be cured by immediate and proper application. The usual mode is to bandage the limb above the wound, and apply a part of the snake's or a chick en's body, to the place, which extracts the poison ; sucking the wound is also resorted to, and when it is to be had an internal and external application of hartshorn is made. The bite produces the most excrucia ting pain, a violent inflammation and swelling immediately takes place, the flesh around the bite rots, and unless relief is speedily obtained the patient becomes a swollen, blackened, and loathsome corpse. The wound inflicted by the moccasin is but little less poisonous ; both species are natural paeirie and seldom strike ex cept in the month of August, unless trodden u pon or irritated. It is said that during the intense heat of the above named month, the action of the poison on their systems is so great as to blind them, and they glide through the hum mocks, without knowing whither, forcing ... their poisonous fangs into everything which impedes their progress. The large rattle snake when living is one of the most brilliant reptiles I have , ever seen ; its back is divided into dia- j mond figures reflecting all the hues of the rainbow, intermingled with a bright nen nail coUed, bead erect in the atti tude of attention, tail constantly in mo tion, and raales buzzing, this snake is certainly a terrible, beautiful object, and one starts back from the view chilled and appalled." If we did but know how little some enjoy the great things they possess, there would not be so much envy in the world. Agricultural ttcaMng. STUMP MACHINE LIQUID MANURE. Mr. Editor :-I once saw a descrip tion of a stump machine that pulled the stump by a screw, and cost only twenty five dollars. Can you tell me anything in regard to such a machine, (a.) ouia you recommend farmers to adopt the plan of using liquid manure as recommen ded by T. C, in Farmer Feb. 23 ? As this matter is quite new here, I wish more light in regard to it. With what should the tank be filled after the liquid is drawn off, and how often should the liquid be applied to the soil? Should the tank be built entirely underground, or only level with the ground so as to be easily open ed? Can they be made water-tight in the manner described by T. C. ? , S. G. Butler. Essex, Vt., 1856. Remarks. The farmer must be gov erned in his operations by the same laws which govern the manufacturer, the mer chant, or commercial man ; by the cir cumstances with which he is surrounded and the capital which he can control. If a proper investment in the farm, or implements and stock, absorb all his cap ital, we certainly should not advise him to risk a large outlay in the fixtures and conveniences for liquid manuring, unless he possessed a remarkably enterprising spirit, and means to give farming his en- tire attention. We are far from believ-; in" in Dr. Beecher's theorv, that the far mer should never incur a debt. But there is a way to begin the good work, which is open to all. In a convenient spot, near the buildings make a cistern in the ground, four feet wide, six feet long and eight feet deep, in the clear ; stone, or brick it if preferred, though on firm earth it will answer all purposes cemented directly on the ground itself. A good way is to begin by laying a wall on the surface of the ground, eight or twelve inches high on each side of the : tank, leaving the precise dimensions de sired. Let the stones have a face inside and level the top to receive the plank ' which is to cover it. Cement the joints of the wall, and then turf over the out- side. Then excavate the inside, being careful not to disturb the walk Into this I cistern, conduct the sink water, and over it set the privy ; in the other end set a stout pump stock, and the cistern is corn- plete. It would also be well to conduct ; the water from the roofs of the houses into it at will. The cistern would be stronger if made round instead of square or oblong. The pump should be made j of inch boards, and about six inches ' square. Here, then, is a receptacle for all sorts of cast-off stuff; nothing of a perishable nature can hardly come amiss. During a portion of the year liquid con tents may be applied directly to the fields by the aid of a cask mounted on wheels, i neter should be used. Even when ap Then as an adjunct, there should always j Pe moderately, a little exposure may be a hollow square of meadow muck close by to receive the contents of the cistern when it is too tick to be pumped out, or when it is not convenient to dis- tribute it on the fields, or in the winter. If the odor should not be so much like that from a bed of mignionette as you would like, dissolve a few pounds of cop peras in plenty of water and stir that in with it, when you will be able to proceed pleasantly. 2T.

The mechanic who is tied down to his seat or bench during the long and weari some day, and whose sedentary avocation renders a certain degree of active exercise essential to health, will find the garden an excellent theatre for the relaxation both of mind and nerves. Here pleasure and the pursuit of health may be combined with profit, and the increase of blessings rendered equal, r nearly so, to that of his " working hours." To every sedentary person, whether mechanic or lawyer, minister or man of pleasure," we would say, unhesitatingly, Tlant a earden. Have some vegetable growing upon which you can bestow your hours of unoccupied time, your periods of leisure and lassitude, and thus escape that terrible ennui wheih is ever the cause of the idle and unoccupied. No man can be happy or healthy without some em ployment something to stir his blood and send it in healthful currents through his veins. The more open and regular this exercise, the more healthy and happy he will be. From the New England Fanner. HORSES WITHOUT HAY, LICE ON CATTLE. Mr. Editor, Although not engaged in farming, still I am a constant and well entertained reader of your valuable pa per, and feel highly interested in the sub jects that fill its columns. In the num ber for March 15, 1 noticed an article on the use of corn stalks as fodder, and the preference cattle have for those of the sweet corn, mentioned by Gen. Chandler, of Lexington, and which fact has been observed by others. But what I wish to say is, that one of my townsmen cuts yearly about six acres of stalks, with which he keeps five horses in good work ing order, dealing it to them finely cut, with the average quantity of cob meal. With regard to keeping on hay and grain, a friend of mine who has constant use for his horses in teaming on the road, says he keeps them in good condition with seven quarts of meal and shorts with their hay, dealing to each horse two quarts in the morning, two at noon, and three at night, with no more hay than will be eaten up clean. In the articl0nder the caption " What ails my Cow?" the writer says "he uses unguintum on the parts affected, spanng- ly" It should be thus used, if it all, as by the cow lapping it off, and perhaps. too, by absorption, might sicken and die. as we knew once to be the case, where this mercurial preparation was rather too lavishly used. Some of our older farmers contend that the lice go as regularly to the ani- mal's nose to drink, as the cow does her- self to the brook. Hence, they say, that the best mode to get rid of them is, to bore a gimlet-hole or two in the stanch ions, and fill with the ointment, so that it may be rubbed off upon the neck of the animal, or by applying a circle of it around the horns and neck. Other: upon the same principle, apply oil about the head and neck, and declare it to be effectual, leaving the lice to perish on the premises, or quit, just as they choose. Whether the theory be correct, or other- wise, I am not prepared to say. Will you enlighten me ? Waliham, March 1856. 8. B. E. Remarks. The caution about uh guintum on cattle is a timely one. It ' make the animal so susceptible to exter- 1 na influences, as to cause great mischief ; b7 iu 11 13 a preparation of mercury or I quicksilver, a metal, and passes into the circulation of the system, and, it is said, into the bones themselves. The teeth , sometimes become loose so that the ani mal cannot eat, even if it had appetite. Good feed, cleanliness every way, fre quent carding, and the application of soft oil, will prevent the access of vermin. Lamp oil is too clogging. A little neat's foot oil will cover a large surface if care fully applied. The hand should be oiled, then draw the hair of the animal through ' "d3 'rom thorns or grapes from thistle." it is now a convenient time to trim grape vines, trees and shrubs, beinrcare- i lul not to trim too much. A .trimming every season, of the shoots or suckers, such limbs as are decaying, and others that interlock or cross others, thereby bruising them, is all they require. Downing's Fruit and Fruit Trees qf America is a superior work for instruc tions on such matters. It is a good plan to wash all coated trees with soft soap. It cleans off the old coat and starts a new, smooth one ; also to remove the soil from about the bodies, and apply a dres sing of compost or the scrapings of feam mould from the forestsv S.
