It may be of some benefit to a portion of your
patrons to know how a few citizens in this sec
tion have managed, this warm changeable w in
ter, to preservo their beef, pork, poultry, and
other fresh, meat, for some time in good condi
tion. One successful method has been practised by
placing one cask within another, packing straw
between the two, on the bottom and around the
sides. The meat was frozen, and packed in
straw within the inner cask, secured well at the
top from air during the warm weather.

Margaret Lester's kind heart overflowed

was engaged talking to Mrs. Lester, ho

but that night she heard tho old church

" Those of yott who have tho opportunity of

of handicraft, Vulcan by name, who was always
represented as employed in huge smithies and
workshops, hammering at heavy anvils, blowing
hugo helows, heating furnaces, and bcgriinmeu
with soot and dirt. Well, ladies and gentlemen,
for this hard-working and swarthy looking di
vinity they wished to pick out a wife, (loud
laughter.) And they did not select for him a
mero drab a person taken from tho scullery or
kitchen dresser, but they choc for him Venus,
the goddess of lovo and beauty.
"Now, ladies and gentlemen, pick out for mo
tho moral of this tale, for I believe that nothing

But this man, who could drink without
any scruple the fruit of his own labor, felt
a kind of remorse in expending at tho tavern
tho money which had been earned by his
daughter ; nnd when lie drew from his pock

The Vol'.no Inplord. One of tho best and

Mas.-achusetts, was Judge r . Ho was al
ways distinguished for tho urbanity of hi man

tho story I havo now to relate illustrates, quite
forcibly, this characteristic.
Judgo P. was raised in Il.irns.able, and at tha
time we refer to, assisted his mother, as much
as possible, in keeping a country inn ; a modo
of mibsiftcnre to which she was driven by tha
death of her husband.
One evening a way-worn traveller, armed
with a bundlo suspended from a cane, entered tha
inn and asked for something to cat. Ilisdrcs
was not calculated to impress a beholder with
any vast ideas of wealth ; but rather of one who
lived by travelling on foot and begging a night's
lodging from benevolent inn keepers. Jln. l .
cast a glance at tho traveller, and seeing his
shabby coat, formed a pretty accurate estimate
of his ability to pay for whatover might bo fur
nished him. , , , .
She left tho room to examine her larder, and
in a short time returned, and having set I eforo
him a irry picked bono of beef went out of tha
room, at thosamo titno saying to her son, 'John,
it will bo worth alioiit twenty cents.
Our traveller attacked the beef, and altersomo
time bavin" perfectly macerated it, he rose and
asked Jolmliow much ho was to pay.
i Well,' said John, ' mother thought it would
bo worth about twenty cents to pick that bone,
and I think so too ; here's the money,' and ha
generously presented the traveller with a piita
