Pierce sends the following and vouches for its truthfulness : I have to relate an account of the pro ductiveness of the soil in this section that I could not believe myself if I were not most fully convinced of its truthfulness by the testimony of living witnesses whose truthfulness is unimpeachable. Rev. Jacob Cozad was an early settler in Green Co., Ohio, township of Fair field. He came to that place in the year 1804 from Virginia, being first made ac quainted with the character of the soil and climate of this Mad River country, by a search through for his two sons who were stolen by the Indians and carried away from their home in Virginia. Dur ing that terrible anxious search he trav ersed all parts of this country, and after the people had effected what is known as the Maumee treaty with the natives, this gentleman came with his sons and family into this place in Ohio to find a home to settle his children around him. Now for the story relative to the soil. This tract of land is what is called pure bottom land on the shores of the Mad River. One particular lot of twenty acres was planted with corn in 1804 and upon the same lot for every successive year since that time have they planted corn, and in every instance gathered a good crop and in no instance have they used any fertilizes or manure of any kind whatever. The black rich soil is from three to nine feet deep, lying upon a bed of clean white gravel. I questioned the story. But I had it from the lips of a gentleman who is a member of the family, and who in 1853 sold the land and knows whereof he af firmed. To a Vermont farmer who is obliged to fertilize heavily every year in order to secure a crop and who is obliged to exercise his skill as to the best method of rotation of crops, such a story seems utterly fabulous. It would seem that the top of the soil would become exhausted and worthless for they do not plow to ex ceed eight inches in depth, but there seems to be no drain whatever upon its richness. When it had borne fifty-two crops the property changed owners, and at the season when the corn was in its prime. At that time the corn stood eleven feet high, and there was not a missing hill on the whole twenty acres. I questioned as to the stocks and fod der, whether it was not plowed in and in this way the soil enriched to some extent, and this was the reply. " We drive on and husk the corn as it stands, and never cut it up and stock it. Then in winter when the ground is froz en we take a pole some twelve or fifteen feet in length and hitch a horse at each end and drive over the field the horses abreast dragging this pole. By this means the stocks are easily broken off. Then in the spring just before plowing we take a large heavy horse rake and go over the ground raking the stocks in to winrows and when dry set fire to them and burn them off clean. Thus we pro ceed from year to year and to all ap pearance the soil will last as long as the world stands. This I regard as a remarkable corn field. Yours, N. Pierce. To Remove Perspiration Odor. The Scientific American savs: The un nlpnyant odor produced by perspiration t . ia fraaucntlv source of vexation to per sona who are subject to it. Nothing is simpler than to remove this odor much more effectually than by the application of such unguents and perfumes as are now in use. It is only necessary to pro cure some compound spirits of ammonia, and place about two tablespoonfuls in a basin of water. Washing the face, hands and arms with this, leaves the skin as clean, neat and fresh as one could wish. The wash is perfectly harmless, and very cheap. It is recommended on the au V.r.ritv of an experienced physician, and it ought to be tried at least by all those whose persons are so offensive in this respect. A few Maxima for Young Olrln. Never make your appearance in the morning without having first bathed (if only with a sponge and a quart of wa ter), brushed and arranged your hair, and dressed yourself neatly and com pletely. , Keep your clothing, especially under clothing, in perfect 'order. Never let pins do duty as buttons, or strings take the place of proper bands. Examine every garment when it comes from the wash, and, if necessary, mend it with neatness and precision. Do not sew up the holes in your stockings, as we have seen gome careless, untidy girlu do, but take in a broad margin around the hole, be it small or large, with a fine darning needle and daVning-cotton, and cover the fracture with an interlaced stitch, so close as to be strong as the body of the stocking, and fine enough to be ornamental. Stockings mended in this way need darning but a very few times in the course of their existence. Never carry coarse embroidered or laced handkerchiefs. Fine, plain ones are much more lady-like. Avoid open-worked stockings and very fancy slippeis. Fine, plain, white hose, and black kid slippers, with only a strap or rosette in front, are more becoming. Train yourself to useful occupation. Remember it is wicked to waste time, and nothing gives such an impression of vanity and absolute silliness as a habit of idling and never having anything to do. If you are in your father's house take some department of household labor up on yourself, and a part of the sewing, and make it your business to attend to it Do not let a call from this idle girl, or a visit from that, or an invitation from the other, interfere with the per formance of your duty. Let your pleasures come in as recrea tions, not as the business of your life. If you want to marry, do not court or try to attract the attention of gentlemen. A little wholesome indifference, real or assumed, will be much more likely to accomplish the object. Consider, more over, that it is better to be a woman than a wife, and do not degrade your sex by making your whole existence turn on the pivot of matrimxmy. If you can, cultivate to perfection some art by which you could gain an in dependent livelihood. Do it whether there is a necessity for it or not Do it quietly, if you will, but do it. There is no telling when or under what circum stances you may need it. Demorest. Fishing. Those boy3 who rejoice in the patent improvements in fishing im plements, and Commiserate the poor fel lows who lived in early times and didn't know how to catch fish, will open their eyes in surprise when we tell them that bright little Roman boys caught trout with artificial flies, in the silver streams of Italy, more than a dozen centuries ago. Many Greek and Roman authors wrote treatises upon fishing. The pas sion for angling ran so high in those times that even Cicero aimed his shafts of satire at the mad lovers of the pisca torial pastime. Pliny, Pollux, and Var ro wrote learnedly upon the subject of fishes. In 1496, Jane Berners, a beauti ful Englishwoman, wrote a book called " TheTreatyscof Fysshiuge with an An gle." She was thoroughly skilled in all masculine sports, as hawking, hunting, and the like. But at last, in 1653, Izaak Walton gave the sum and substance of the whole matter in " The Complete An gler." More than four hundred works have since been published, but their au thors only claim to be humble disciples of good Izaak Walton. Singular Facts. You may pass a wet stick, or your naked hand, previous ly dipped in water, through a running stream of molten iron, cutting it to and fro as you do so, without the slightest in jury to either. Water, or even Mercu ry, which freezes at 71 degrees below the freezing point of water, may be frozen into a solid mass at the bottom of a plat inum crucible at a white heat. . The ex planation is that the hand, and the stick do not really touch the iron, nor the mer cury.or water the bottom of the cruci ble, a cushion of steam being instanta neously formed around them which pre vents contact with this extreme heat. much in the same way as a sheet of snow will protect the ground from ex treme cold. Laundresses try their irons in this way. If the water on them rolls off without boiling, they are too hot, but if it sputters and boils, they are just ready for use. The reason of this is that this cushion of vapor is instantaneously formed, and prevents the extreme sur rounding heat from reaching beyond the surface of the water. If the tempera ture is reduced by cooling off the furnace bv the addition of more fuel, the water almost explosively takes the form of steam, and in this way without any donbt, many boilers, which have been proved equal to any other test, have collapsed. ,NOV. C, 1SGS. lioya out after Nlghtfaill. I have long been an observer, as I am a sympathizing lover, of boys. I like to see them happy, cheerful and gleesome. I am not willing that they should be cheated out of their rightful heritage of youth indeed, I can hardly understand how a high-toned, useful man can be the ripened fruit of a boy who has liot en joyed a fair share of the glad privileges due to youth. But while I watch with a very jealous eye all rights and customs which entrench upon the proper rights of boys, I am equally apprehensive lest pa rents, who are not forethoughtful, and who have not habituated themselves to close observation upon this subject, per mit their sons indulgences which are al most certain to result in their demoraliz ation, if not total ruin; and among the habits which I have observed as tending most surely to ruin, I know of none more prominent than that of parents permitting their sons to be in the street after nightfall. It is ruinous to their morals in almost all instances. They ac quire, under cover of the night, an un healthy and excited stato of mind, bad language and practices, criminal senti ments, a lawless and riotous bearing ; indeed, it is in the street, after nightfall, that boys principally acquire the educa tion of the bad capacity for becoming dissolute, criminal men. Parents should in this particular, adopt a most rigid, in flexible rule, that will never permit a son, under any circumstances whatever, to go into the street after nightfall, with a view of engaging in out of door sports or of meeting other boys for social or chance occupation. A rule of this kind, invariably adhered to, will soon deaden the desire for such dangerous practices. Education begins with life. Befora we are aware, the foundations of the character are laid, and no subsequent in structions can remove or alter them. Linnscus was the son of a poor Swedish clergyman. His father had a flower garden, in which he cultivated all the flowers which his means or taste could select. Into this little flower garden he introduced his little son from infancy, and this little garden undoubtedly crea ted the taste in this child which after ward made him the first botanist and naturalist of his age, if notof his race. Fireside Companion. A Murderous Sea Flower ' One of the exquisite wonders of the sea is called the opclet, and is about as large as the German aster, looking in deed very much like one. Imagine a very large, double aster, with ever so many long petals of the delicate shade of light green, glossy as satin, and each one tipped with rose color. These lovely petals do not lie quietly in their places, like those of the aster in your garden, but wave about in the water while the opelet himself clings to a rock. How innocent and lovely it looks on its rocky bed ! Who would suspect that it would cat anything grosser than dew or sunlight? But those beautiful waving arms as you may call them have an other use besides looking pretty. They have to provide food for a large open mouth, which is hidden deep down among them so well hidden that one can scarcely find it. Well do they perform their duty, for the instant a foolish little fishlet touches one of these rosy tips, he is struck with poison, as fatal to him as lightning. He immediately becomes numb, and in a moment stops struggling and then the other beautiful rmg wrap themselves around him and he is drawn into the huge greedy mouth, and is seen no more. Then tlie lovely arms unclose and wave again in the water, looking as innocent and harmless as though they had never touched a fish. " The Poor Ye have always wrrn You." Not at all as aristocratic Christian churches have it The rich have one place and the poor (instead of being with them), have another place or none. In his address to the working men of Montreal, Rev. Newman Hall thus alluded to our exclusivcness, and expressed his feelings with regard to the worship of the poor :; - , t " In Surrey chapel, my own church, as soon as the time comes to begin, all the seats are free to anybody, rich and poor together. , While in the states I saw several very fine churches, beautifully carpeted, and all the parts . beautifully trimmed ; but on asking where the poor people sat, I was told they had mission churches for them in different parts of the city. Now I like to see rich and poor together. I like to see men of all classes in the same building, and an earn est welcome given to everybody.' At one of the Ragged Schools in Ire land, a clergyman asked the question : " What is holiness? " A poor Irish con vert, in dirty, tattered rags, jumped up, and said: "Tlase, your Riverence! it's to be clane inside." ' Flowers are the alphabet of angels, scattering over hill and dale, and speak ing what tongue cannot express.. 1 . NO. 45. Charge of Murat at Eylau. , BY J. T. HEADLY. It is at Eylau that Murat appears in his most terrible aspect This battle, fought in mid winter, in 1807, was the most important and bloody one that had then occurred. France and Russia had never before opposed such strength to each other, and a complete victory on ei ther side would have settled the fate of Europe. Bonaparte remained in posses sion of the field, and that was all ; no victory was ever so like a defeat The field of Eylau was covered with snow, and the little po'uds that lay scat tered over it were frozen sufficiently hard to bear the artillery. Seventy-one thou sand men on one side, and eighty-five thousand on the other, arose from the frozen field on which they had slept the night of February, without tent or cov ering, to battle for a continent Auge reau, on the left, was utterly routed in the morning. Advancing through a storm so thick he could not see the ene my, the Russian cannon mowed down his ranks with their destructive fire while the Cossack cavalry, which were ordered to charge, came thundering on, almost hitting the French infantry with their long lances before they were visi ble through the storm. Hemmed in and overthrown, the whole division, composed of 16,000 men, with the exception of 15,00, were captured or slain. Just then the snow storm clear ing up, revealed to Napoleon the peril to which he was brought, and he immedi ately ordered a grand charge by the Im perial Guard and the whole cavalry. Nothing was further from Bonaparte's wishes or expectation than the bringing of his reserve into the engagement at this early stage of the battle, but there was ub other resource left him. Murat sustained his high reputation on this occasion, and proved himself, for the hundredth, time, worthy of the great confidence Napoleon placed in him. Nothing could be more imposing than the battle-field at this moment . Bona parte and the Empire trembled in the balance, while Murat prepared to lead down his cavalry to save them. Seventy squadrons, making in all 11,000 well- mounted men, began to move over the slope, with the Old Guard marching I sternly behind. , Bonaparte, it is said, was more agita ted at this crisis than when, a few mo ments before, he was so near being cap tured by the Russians. But as he saw those seventy squadrons come down on a plunging trot, pressing hard after the white plume of Murat, that streamed through the snow storm far in front, a smile passed over his countenance. The earth groaned and trembled as they passed, and the sabres, above the dark, angry mass below, looked like the foam of a sca-wave, as it crests on the deep. The rattling of their armor, and the muffled thunder of their tread drowned all the roar of battle, as with firm, set array, and swift, steady motion, they bore down with terrible fronton the foe. '. ,.'". The shock of that immense host was like a falling mountain, and the front line of the Russian army went down like frost work before it. Then commenced a protracted fight of hand to hand, and sword to sword, as in the cavalry action at Eckmuhl. . The clashing of steel was like the ringing of countless hammers, and horses and riders were blended in wild confusion together. The Russian reserve were ordered up, and on these Murat fell with his fierce horsemen, crushing and trampling them down by thousands. But the obstinate Russians disdained to fly, and rallied again and again, so that it was no longer cavalry charging on infantry, but squadrons of horse galloping through broken hosts that, gathering into knots, still disputed, with unparalleled bravery, the red and rent field. ' i It was during this strange fight that Murat was seen to perform one of those desperate deeds for which he was so renowned.- ' Excited to the highest pitch of passion by the obstacles that opposed bim, he seemed endowed with ten-fold strength, and looked more like a super- nuraan oetng treading aown Helpless mortals, than an ordinary man.- Amid the roar of artillery, and rattling of musketry, and falling of sabre-strokes like lightning about him, that lofty white plume never once went down, wTiilo ever and anon it was seen glaring through the smoke of battle, the star of hope to Na poleon, and showing that " his right arm" was still uplifted and striking for victo ry. , - He raged like an unloosed lion amid the foe; and his eyes, always terrible in battle, burned with increased luster, while his clear and steady voice, heard above the turmoil of strife, was worth more than a thousand trumpets to cheer on his followers. At length,' seeing a knot of Russian soldiers that for a long time kept up a devouring; fire on his men, he wheeled his horse and drove in full gallop upon their levelled muskets. A few of his guards, that never allowed IL 1JL that white plume to leave their sight, charged after him. 'Without waiting to count his foes, he seised his bridle in his teeth, and with his pistol in one hand and his drawn sword in the other, burst in headlong fury upon them, and scat tered them as if a hurricane had swept by. Murat was a thunderbolt on hat day, and the deeds that were wrought bj him will furnish themes for the poet and painter. , Curious Hop Picking Scene. A Wisconsin paper says : " Probably in all history of hop picking since yeast and lager were invented, there has been nothing to compare with the scenes that have been going on in this region, and in Kilbourn City especially, for the Jast six or eight days. For two or three weeks the hop growers have been gathering their supplies, and the merchants and traders of this ' place, Baraboo, and Reedsburg, have been on the jump wait ing on their customers. The first of last week the pickers began to come in, and this week there must be at least 30,000 lively at work picking the hops of the region that ships them at this depot. Of this 30,000 at loast 10,000 pass through this village.',' Wagon loads of from eight to fifteen each have been almost con stantly passing through town for the last eight days, generally coming from the north and east, and crossing the river in to Sauk County. Of the 10,000 that pass through this village, about 8,000 come on the railroad from the east and stop here. The first instalment by cars, some 400, came last week, on Tuesday evening. Wednesday evening nearly 1,000 came, Thursday and Friday'eve nings each, 500 or 600. Saturday after noon it was rumored that a very large number wero on the way, and the rumor was corroborated by the great number of teams that seemed to be in wasting. About (rain time (half-past seven) pro bably 1,000 persons had collected at the depot to witness the arrival. It was then found that the cars were two hours behind time, and that instead of one train," two were coming, with 28 cars loaded. When tbe two hours were up the crowd at the depot had increased ; and this, with the acres of two and four horse wrgons about the depot, and the music and fun of the merry drivers form ed no small preliminary show of itself. " But as the two trains came thundering along, and as they stretched themselves away beyond and away back of the de pot, and stopped, excitement was on tip toe. ! And when 2,000 pickers began to pour out of every door of those 28 cars, the sceno beat all other Western shows. Cheering, laughing, singing, shouting. Admirable confusion no disorder. Sec tions of tens, platoons of twenties, com panies of forties, all officered, moving in squads ; captains giving orders to their companies; marching and counter marchingdirect and in echelon form ing camp and breaking camp: armed and equipped with umbrellas, parasols, satchels, baskets, bandboxes, bags, bun dles, babies ! Teamsters shouting for their loads rush for the wagons tumb ling in I all formed a scene to beat any army camp or movement 1 We can't do justice to the subject But, great as was the display on Saturday evening, it was . more than matched on Monday evening! .We have no means of knowing exactly how many came on the two trains, but from the best information we can get we put the number at twenty-five hundred ! , Two hours before the trains arrived 240 teams were counted, which were waiting to take the pickers to their destinations. After the count, teams continued to come in ; and when the train arrived there must have been Dtarly 300. Some of the four-horse teams take IS or 20, and the average is at least ten. But some teams do not get their loads, because two long trains could not bring them we hear that the trains were full before they arrived at Oconomowoc ; and that hun dreds who had gathered at the stations this side of there had to be left to come by the train to-day (we write on Tues day.) But undoubtedly 250 wagons wen filled with at least ten each. Truly, hops are king, and in this region 30,000 queens are waiting on the old fellow." Charity A . Beautiful, Leoeho from the Rabbinical Writers. Once upon a time, as Abraham was sitting ia the door of his tent, there came upon him a wayfaring man ; and Abraham gave him water for his feet, and set bread be fore him. And Abraham said unto hist . " Let us now worship God before we eat of this bread." : And the wayfaring saaa said to Abraham,' 44 1 will not worship the Lord thy God, for thy God is not my God ; but I will worship my God, even the God of my fathers." -' Aut Abraham was exceedingly wroth ; and he rose up to put the wayfaring man forth from the door of his tent, when, lo ! the voice of the Lord was heard in the tent, saying,; M Abraham, Abraham, have I borne with this man for three score and tea years, and canst tbou not bear with him for one hour ' -' '' .
