I have known men and women too, who, from various causes had become ho much affected with nervousness that when they stretched out their hands they shook liko aspen leaves on windy days and by a daily moderate use of the blanched toot s'alks of celery leaves as a salad they become as strong and steady in limbs as other people. I have known others so very nervous that the loist annoyance put them in a state of Agitation, and they were almost in constant perplexity and fear, who were also effectually cured by a daily moderate use of blanched celery as a salad at meal limes.

To be ahlo to lie down at niglit and fall to sleep within ten minutef , aud to know do dream or waking until tho morning comes, and then to boucd oat of bed full of health, freshness and good liumor, is a blessing well worthy tho warmest outgush' ings of a thankful heart toward Ilitu who giveth us all things richly to enjoy. Some of the ways of attaining such a priceless boon we here name. Take dinner at the good old fashioned hour of mid day ; eat nothing afterwards, except at supper when a piece of cold bread and butter with a single cup of weak tea and half a glass of pure water is enough for any body under ordinary cir cumstances. If dinner is taken in the uiddle of the afternoon, do not eat an atom of anything until next tnornina Another plan it to avoid sleeping in the -day-time, and retire habitually at a regular hour. In order to make u desirable result more certain, remember practically tho follow ing facts : We need, ordinarily, seven hours of ' sleep in summer aud eight in the winter. Wc breath in sleep about filteeu times every minute. Each inhalation of pure air is returned liadcdwith poison j a hundred and fifty graiusof it is added to the atmosphere of a telroom every hour, or twelve burdr'ed grains during a niht. Unless the poison. laden atmosphere is diluted or removed by a constant current of air passing through the room, the blood soon becomes impure, then circulates slug gihhly, accumulating and pressing on the brain, givitij me to frightful dreams. Il the room is small and tight, the spectrial nightmare, the fearful groan, the terrible shriek, are the result, and in aggravating cases, with the addition of a hearty late meal, there is not strength to give the moan, to raise the slriek, and thus arouse the system ; there is no power to move, the man feels a crushing danger coming upon him, he cau't get out of the way. hatt's Jonrral of Hcultlf PRKrARATios of Wuitbwasu. Whitewash is one of the most valuable articles in the world,- when properly applied. It not only prevents tho decay of wood, but conduces greatly to the hcalthfulness of all buildings. whether of wool or stone. Out buildings and fences when not painted, should be sup plied onee or twice a year with a good coat of whitewash, which should be prepared in the following way : Take a clean, water tight cask, and put into it half a bushel of liinc. Slack it by pouring watei over it boiling hot, and in sufficient quantity to cover it five inches deep, and stir it briskly till thoroughly slackened. When the lime has been slackened. dissolve it in water, aud add two pounds of sulphate of zinc nnd one of common sal These- will cause the wash to harden and pre vent its cracking, which gives au unseemly appearance to the. work. A beautiful cream color may bo given to the wash by adding three pounds of yellow ochre ; or a good pearl or lead color by the addition of a lump of ivory black. For fawn color add four pontics of umber, one pound of Indian red, md one pound of common lampblack. For stone color add two pounds of raw umber, nnd two pounds of lampblack. When applied io the outsii'e of houses aud to fences, it is rendered more durable by adding about a pint of sweet milk to a gallon of wash. . Gichaltar Caye. The rcmarkab'e rock of. Gibraltar, a gray compact mar ble, which rises fro.n fourteen to sixteen hundred feet above tho Mediterranean, has long been famous for its curious caves. Recently pretty thorough explorations have been made of some of theso caves, under 'he direction of Captain Lrouic, of the British army. One of them, known as " Martin's Cave," opens on the eastern face of the rock ; und was evidently an ancient sea cave, though uow upwards of 700 feet above the Mediterranean. A mouth was devoted to the exploration ; and curiously enough, there were no evidences of any previous exploration of this cave. The explorers first excavated from three to six feet of earth along the south' side of the cave. This revealed t.i them a stalagmite floor, on which were found portions of the lower jaw, supposed -to le human, and a considerable quantify of boues of animals, birds and fishes ; also broken pottery, rude and ornamented ; handles and pots; stone axes ; flint knives and flint chips; worked bones ; sea shells, land shells, and water wabhed pebbles. In a small chamber, ofl the north side of the cave, were found two ancient sworde, aud a small enamelled copper plate, beautifully made and brilliantly colored, with a design upon it, representing a bird in the coil of a serpent. Theso relics are referred to the eleventh or twelfth century. In another largo cave, St. Michael's Cave, were faund numerous human remains, stone axes, flint knives, &c, &c. On the north side of this cave, by breaking up the stalagmite floor, other cave were discov. ered, which extended some 50 feet in a northwesterly direction, the very existence of which had before been unknown. The explorations are still iu progress But they already seem to demonstrate that at somo remote period of tituo the caves of Gibraltar were all inhabited by a race of men having uniform habits of life. Boston Traveller. The King op Sr.us Spain is to have a kinp; in the person of Louis de Orleans, duo do Montpensicr, who will arrive in Madrid within a fortnight and assume the authorities.

A connESi'ONDENT of a San Francisco paper has started the theory that tho spread of the small pox is. attributable to the presence of cats.

Tub Largest 13at,t,oon. A gigantio ballloon has been constructed at Ashburn. ham, near Chelsea, Knglaud, and is 'in. tended to afford some roronauticat experi ence under circumstances which will insure safety.- Tho balloon is four times tho size of that used by Mr. Glaisher, and contains 320,000 cubio feet of gas. It is nearly spherical in shape, nnd is capable ot rais ing a load ofcaeloven tons. It cost $150, 000. It is rnificd by pure hydrogen, and is drawn down by a chain pulled by a steam engine of two hundred hurso power The weight of the cable is two and a half tons, and its length is two thousand feet. The balloon, car, netting and paraphernalia weigh three and a halt tons, which with its cable, make six tons of pcrmancut weight, leaving a balance of five tons as its available power. Thirty persons are the compliment tho car is intended to 'hold, assuming these to weigh a hundred and titty pounds each, a balance of some three tons lifting power is left in favor of the balloon.
