BY DOS' PIATT. 1 have a turn for swine. I might say that I have a tasto for swine. I do not mean a taste for pork, but a liking for the living pig. To put it in pluin Eng lish, I liko the hog. The hog to me is like the fool i' the forest, nient and drink. I study him. I understand him. I am amazed at his Whys, and am filled with admiration of his sagacity. I was brought up on hog. I had rare opportunities to study his character, an appreciate his traits. "With due deliberation I assert that for shrewdness of observation, knowledge of character, for thought and memory, your hog excels all the other beasts of the field and fore9t. - lie is selfish. Well, looked at from a certain standpoint, boggy is selfish. But deprive a man of his hands and tongue ; put in him a stomach that will digest "Bancroft's History of the United States," a stomach of great capacity and inordinate appetite; then build up fences, shut the gates, and turn loose your dogs, and what will become of a man's generous impulses, etc. ? They will go " where the woodbine twineth " over the Erie stock. As it is, with all his advantages, man comes hearer to the hog In this quality than any other ani mal. As the pis; puts at least one foot in the trough while eatintr, so a man will degrade his possessions in proof of niB ownership. This is especially the case with his wife, and would be with his children, but thai as they grow older and Btronger he grows older and weaker, so the pig mastery predominates in the ortspring. , witn these tastes ana ideas I was walking slowly along Pennsylvania ave nue, when I saw thu sign of " Learned Pig," dono in hugo letters upon the side of a house. I rend further along that the admission fee, was twenty-ilve cents servants, children, ministers of the gospel, and Sunday schools, admitted tor half price. I brought up a promise to pay issued by our paternal Govern ment to the amount ot twenty-hve cents, as I did not come under either of the ex ceptions, and presented it to the guar dian of the entrance, who, glancing at me, gave the fractional bit of currency an insulting examination. " All right," he said, motioning an in vitation to enter, ana adding upologoti oally, " No offence, Cap, but counterfeits do gravitate toward soientitic swine most amazingly. The choice, language of the doorkeeper impressed me deeply. It was as sur prising as the educated hog. Learning uau seizea upon me concern. I entered a room that had once been devoted to the sale of intoxicating drinks, It yet retained its counter and its odor, One's nostrils recognized the spirit of departed cocktails and mint-juleps that pervaded the atmosphere, mingling with the vile smell of old cigars. The educa ted Bwine was not visible, but certain eminent statesmen, distinguished bv their thirst for knowledge, were of the audience. A consumptive young man labored steadily at a band organ that gave us the air of " Shoo Fly," as if the uir of " Shoo Fly " was being jolted over a stumpy corduroy road. In the pause of this orchestra that oame kindly to our relief, we heard certain snores and grunts indicating that the learned beast of tusks and bristles was reposing from his laborious studies unknown to the audi, ence. When the room was BuBioiently filled, the consumptive orchestra abandoned his post, and going to the door relieved the gentleman who had expressed the sage opinion touohing the tendency counterfeit currency bad to gravitate to the learned swine. This taker-in of dimes and curious people, proceeded in a business-like manner to the counter, and rapping on the Bide, ordered the educa ted pork, under the name of " lien, to come forth. A grunt of recognition was the only response. A louder rap and a more imperative order, brought a series of grunts, that to those acquainted with hog language meant a remonstrance; whereupon the lecturer reached under and administered certain blows that brought out a squeal and the learned shoto. He was of the species known at the West as a " saw-back, and described in the language of that region as " slab- Bided, long-snouted, and spindled-legs : of the sort to break a man's heart, if that heart was bent upon adding some adi Eose to the bone and muscle, so as to ring out the pork in merchantable quantities. He had, however, an intellectual ex uression of faca, and it was really ooml uul to see the poor animal snapping his laws together with that emphasis pecu liar to an indignant porker, and all the while eyeing from under hi lop-ears the noiaer ot the rattan. "Ladies and gentlemen, began the exhibitor. " this animal is the most in telligent and the best educated hog in the world. There be some pigs ou ex hibit that pretend to be edicated pigs, and I don t deny that such creatures have claims; but edication, ladies and gentlemen, to be wonderful, must have a sound basis an 8. ti. Now what do I mean by 8. B. Y I mean mind I mean brain. Without the 8. B. what's a man, let alone a liogr Why, he's an edicated ass. This bog, ladies and gentlemen,has mind he has an edicated mind. He can tell the time of day. He can play poker equal to any Congressman. He can tell the age of an individual, bo as to ploase the ladies and astonish the gentle men. And don't he know liquor ? Well, may be he don't. But just try him, that's all ; and if you don't find him as drunk as a Senator, why, constipate my digestion, that's alL Now, Ben, wide awake, old fellow ; eyes of Delaware and my stick are on you : astonish these in tellectual encyclopedias of homogeneous locomotion." This amazing; use of heavy English evidently impressed Ben with the belief that his exhibitor was swearing violent ly, and he set about his tasks with a cheerful alacrity that was manifested by a continuous twisting and untwisting of bis caudal appendage, accompanied by a series of grunts that told of his anxiety. lie gave us the time with accuracy ; and as for ages, Ben's education was perfect. He invariably flattered the ladies by re porting their years to be about half the number nature had allowed them, while the men were made so old that the sting was removed in the absurdity. His games of poker and old sledge brought down the house, they were so dexterous and perfect. After the audienoe had retired, 1 yet lingered upon the threshold. 1 was loath to ieave a specimen of hog so entertain, ing as this Ben. To leara something more, I approached the odd speoimon of humanity, and earnestly invited him to a little refreshment at Harvey s. (Jon senting, we were soon seated, and I led him over his lager and oysters to the sub ject we were both so interested in. I have had in my time all sorts of table talk from horses to wines ; but for the first time had a full dish of hog-talk. "Now, my dear sir, 1 said, leaning over confidentially, with my face braoed between my two hands, and my elbows planted on the table, " how under heaven do you manage to instruct a hog r ' .basy enough, Cap, when you once get the hang of it." " And how r " The hang of it lies in the feed. The road to a hog's intellect lies through his stomach. A low diet with a high culture is my motto." " And how did you make this wonder ful discovery c"' " iiasy enough. I had a cousin in the show business, and he used to tell me how they educated the animals. The first thing, cousin Jake said, was to get your animal that had a turn for things, naturally smart you know. Well, 1 turned that over in my mind, for I was bound to make a raise. The old farm had run under until it looked liko a widow's well. While I was thinking about it, I observed that hog. He was the cun r.ingest hog ever Bet on hoofs. He be longed to an old nigger, and had an eye to cultivating our farm. Ef there was a hole, he d find it ; and ef there was no hole, he made it ; and ef he couldn't olimb an ordinary fence or hist a gate, no hog oould. His only enemy was uncle Sammy's dog ' Camomile.' And here's where the surprising part comes in. Every Saturday unole Sammy went off to town and got drunk, and he was pretty sure not to turn up before Mon day night ; and that dog Oamomilo went along to take care of the old man. When the old man got into a fight on the ordinance of '87 he was in fernal ugly on them ordinances when half tight Camomile, who didn't care a cuss for the ordinances, but did for uncle Sammy, went for the seat of the enemy's breeches. But that's neither bore or there. I observed that that hog was very attentive to our farm on them days, and I took to watching him. I'll be hanged ef that hog hadn't the run of the week good as a human, and that dog (Janiomile wouldn t be fairly out of sight afore Ben 'd turn up and come in spite of Providence. One day I caught him a waiting under the bush in the cross roads, on a rise whero he could see both ways, awaiting ; and when Camomile and old Sammy were fairly out of sight, he gave a grunt and sot out on a trot for our farm. And he talked to himself all the way. " 1 went tor the hog. That intellectual beast took me. I bought him of his proprietor, the colored citizen, for a jug of old rye, and them I set about his ed ucation. I fastened him up in a box, and gave him not a ration for twenty four hours. You ought to have heard that hog remonstrate at the end of that probation. I begun with the alphabet and figures. It was mighty slow at first. I really thought that swine would have died at college. But as Boon as he got the hang of it, and knew what 1 was driving at, he did pick up amazing ly, I tell you. I used to give him stick o-irn and the rithermatick six hours every day." " And you have done well with him r " Haven't I V That hog Ben has lifted a mortgage, built a new barn, repaired the old house, and put our farm under fence, so as to be hog-proof, I tell you. " You'll make your fortune out of him." " No, Cap. The intellectual process is too much for hog natur. He is in a decline. The brain-work's too much for Ben. You see it ain't their natur. In another year he'll have passed away among the enlightened beasts of tho past." " Why don't you turn him out to re oruit '(" "Can't do it; tried, but can't. All the natural old bog sense has been edi cated out of that beast. He has such a hankering for intellectual pursuits that he can't thrive. No, that hog's a goner . mfH-A'i fhft rif. And a tear rolled down the nose of tho professor. Whether this eame from lager or love, or loss of profit, I could not de termine. Worthy op Imitation. Our young friend T. I. Frederick, was married last week. That was very well, but the best part remains to be told. We are not all born with gold spoons in our mouths. and Tom, like thousands of other worthy young men, works for his support. So, instead of spending 1100 on a wedding trip, he toon his money, furnished two or three rooms in High street, m a very good way, invited his friends in on Mon day evening, sent for Parson Monroe, and was married to Mary Crandall in his own parlor. Tom worked up to 0 o'clock at his trade that day, staid in big own house that night, and the next morning. and since, they go quietly about their business like sensible man and wife. ML Vernon Republican. On Wnkcrulncss. The nrimarv cause of wakefulness is an increase in the quantity of blood cir culating in the brain : hence, any condi tion or cause capable of Inducing this state of the cerebral circulation may give rise to it. As these causes are more or less tinder the control of the individu al, it is important that they should b generally known. 1. Excessive and long-continued intellectual action, or powerful mental emotions. 2. Those positions of the body which tend to im pede the flow of blood from the brain, and, at the same time, do not obstruct Its passage to the brain. Many physi cians have noticed tho connection exist ing between bodily position and wake fulness. It is evident that the reoum bont position is more oonduoive to a state of congestion of the brain than the erect or semi-erect. Dr. Forbes Win slow, Dr. Hammond, and several other physicians have noticed an increase in the number and intensity of hallucina tions of insane patients, or persons suffering from delirium tremens, as soon as they assume the recumbent position. These patients have been found to Bleep quietly for some time in an arm-chair, but to be annoyed by hallucinations as Boon as tbey lie down, .1. Uortain sub stances used as medicine or food. The chief agents of this class are aloohol, tea especially strong green tea coffee, opium, belladonna, stramonium, and In dian hemp or hashish. Opium in small doses is often especially potent in induo ing wakefulness. A single dose of half a grain has been known to keep a pa tient awake for three oonsecutive nights. All the so-called narcotics, in small doses, induce wakefulness rather than sleep. 4. To the above Dr. Hammond adds a fourth exciting cause of insomnia namely, functional derangements of cer tain organs of the body, whereby an in crease in the amount of blood in the brain is produoed. As however, suoh cases as these are beyond the oontrol of the sufferer, we need not disouis them here. In all those cases of wakefulness dependent upon Bevere and long con tinuous mental exertion and these are the oases to which we especially wish to draw the attention of our readers all means of relief will be utterly useless un til the patient consents to give his brain extire relaxation for a time. Whenever it is possible, a course of travel through a romantic country, or a visit to the sea side, should be regarded as imperative. An early dinner, followed by a hearty suppor of plain and nutritious dishes, is preferable to a heavy, late dinner ; and a glass or two of good wine at Doth meals, or a glass of good whisky or bran dy and water after suppor, may often be taken with advantage. The value of physical exercise and especially riding in the open air, can scarcely be over estimated, and should be carried on to the point oi incipient fatigue. A show, er-bath in the morning, and a warm bath before retiring to rest, are useful auxil iaries ; a somewhat high and not too soft a pillow should be used ; and, if the feet are very cold, a hot-water bottle should bo placed at the bottom of tho bed. If the preceding means all or most of which the patient can try for himself fail, recourse should at once be had to professional advice. If we had been asked a couple ot years ago what was the most potent ap;ent in the treatment of wakefulness, we should have answered, without hositation,bromide of potassium, There is now reason to believe, from the researches of Dr. Clouston, that a com bination of this salt with tincture of In dian hemp, in the proportion of half drachm of the salt to a drachm of the tincture, is more potent in allaying ner vous exoitement in cases of insanity, and probably generally, than tho bro mide alone, even, in a far larger dose, The most powerful and irresistible of all sleep-promoters is, however, the new remedy known as hydrate of chloral. and which, it is stated, has beon prescribed successfully, and without a single acci dent, in more than lUO.uuu oases in this country alone. Once a Week. Slind In the Hudson. The propagation of shad, says the Rochester Union, in the Hudson river has been prosecuted under the Commission ers of Fisheries this year with energy and success. The number of young shad brought forth and turned into the river may bo counted by millions. The sea son has now closed. The temperature of the water has risen above eighty, and put an end to the batching operations. The place selected for operations was Mulls f ishery, some ton miles below Albany. To that place the agents em ployed with the requisite apparatus re, paired and encamped about the middle ot May and remained till the ttn ot d uiy, Owing to the increase of shad by the work of former years, there was less dif ficulty in obtaining the parent fish for propagation. The catching ot the shad and the manipulation is all done in the night generally between the hours of nine and two. A large proportion ot the shad taken were unripe or unfit for production. Jlr. A. Ureen, who has given his per sonal attention to the operations at MuII'b, reports that on the night of May 10 he caught torty shad, 01 whioh only three were ripe, and from these he took (30,000 spawn. The temperature ot the water ranged from 60" to Co9. Ou the 20th he took seven ripe shad which pro duced 140,000 spawn. On eeveral occa sions over 300,000 spawn were taken in a single night. On the 0th of July, the water was above K0U, and no shad were taken. Above 240.000 young shad were turned loose, and this closed operations on the Hudson tor the season, ino total of spawn taken was 8,335,000, from which 7,823,000 shad were produced and turned into the river. Three years from his spring these shad will be large enough for market, and at that time tho catch in the Hudson will bs so largo that shad will be sold at very low figures, Enough has been done in the way ot shad culture on the Hudson in the past two seasons to make a marked difference in the vield in the two suoceeding sea sons. The practical results of fish cul ture may now be realized. Tub Latest. The latest phase of fashionable idiotic, vulgarity and folly is the " Kangaroo droop," which bids fair to rival the Urecian bend among those whose heads are deficient where to brain is supposed to lie. To make the thing perfect, a glove with three or four buttons is selected, bo that the wrist may be as long and as small as possible, The wrist of the left hand, and also that of the right band, if not engaged with an Alpine parasol, w brought close to the breast, and then the band is permit ted to fall palm downward, as if all mus oular action was lost This is the pre sent attitude 01 locomotion by the ues cendants of the Kangaroo, and it sug gests the loveliest helplessness imagina ble, besides proving respectfulness to the deceased progenitors. c'ARX AND HOUSEHOLD. Original. Feepixo Stock. Tho next most im portant thing to observe alter cfrtai specifio arrangements in stock breeding, in order to breed well-formed and health ful Btock, is the necessity of so feeding tho animal that all the energies nat u rally bolonging to the system will be kept in prime vigor, and thereby not only maintain the health, but also pro mote the continued due natural mani festations of tho functions of the animal to a good age. The right manner of feeding stock, and its advantages, are not confined to the good condition and health of the an imal alone, for there is a marked differ ence in the expense of the right and proper mode of feeding ; therefore, the pecuniary consideration should bo a suf ficient inducement to farmers to pay the strictest attention to the subject, as it is a field capable of closest research, with results ot the utmost value to be ob tained. Experiments in the feeding of cows, in order to produce the largest amount of cheese, have been carried to that ex tent that nine hundred pounds of cheese have been produoed in one season, and continued for three years, when the stock thus purchased at a very high price has been found to have been en tirely used up, and consequently, the dairy had to be again filled with a new j lot of cows. It will be only necessary to state that notwithstanding the large amount of cheese obtained from the cow, the ex periment was unprofitable, although it was tried with the change ot stock every three years for the term of nine years. Jlegularity of jeedmg is an essential and primary law to be observed in phy sical economy, as healthful functions can only be maintained by due regard to proper and regular modes ot teeaing. So much bo is this the case, in feeding stock, that it has been found that the same quantity of feed by irregularity ot feeding has been the means of keeping cows in bad condition, but when proper ly fed the stock would be in a good and thriving state. It may be also stated that nowhere is the effect of excessive feeding more man ifest than in the manner of keeping horses, as it not only wears cut the ani mal much sooner than if due regard was paid to feeding, but is a fruitful source of disease, and thus many valuable horses have been prematurely lost to the owners, and thereby a sacrifice of the price of a lino and desirablo animal whose services might have lasted for many years. Geo. 1'. Wilcox. Colic in Horses. In this disease, prevention is better than cure. Colio may be prevented by care in feeding. When sufficient green fodder is used, such as the blades and tops of green corn, colio is common. It is caused by the production of gas in the Btomach aud intestines from the fermentation of the food, or by permitting the horse to drink too freely of cold water when tired and exhausted by work. Feed sparingly ef succulont food until the animal has beoome accustomed to its use. Water often, and give little at a time, and nev or either immediately betore or alter a feed. If the horse has been permitted to become very t-irsty, give no more than half a pailful at a time; letting fif teen minutes elapse between the drinks, until he is satisfied. If notwithstanding all care, he is troubled still with colic, give him two ounoes sweet spirits of ni tre, and one ounce tincture of opium in halt a pint ot water, it necessary, re, peat in half an hour, and adding one ounce tincture of aloes. Any spirituous medioiue should be carelully adminis tered. If no inflammation be present, a pint of rum with halt an ounce of pure ginger might altord relief. AMtange. Grain Bindeu. Amontr the new in ventions is a grain binder. This inven tion relates to a new attachment for binding grain on the harvester immedi ately after it has been out, and without any more attention than is necessary to throw tho twisting and binding media, nism into and out of gear. A band gatherer and twister is used, which takes the straw from the sheaf and forms it in, to a band. This twister is a sliding car riage, which, by and duftng its longitu dinal movement, first pulls the straw from the sheaf, and then feeds it back during tho winding of the band around the sheaf. Tho twister contains a rotary shaft whioh twists the straw into the band while pulling it from the sheaf. A pivoted oradle in which the sheaf is de posited during the entire band making ana winding operation, is also employed This cradle holds the sheaf in lino with the shaft of the twister, while the band is beinsr made, and carries it at right an gles thereto, to let the band be wound around the sheaf. The cradle is provid ed with a claw frame or pair of tongs tor retaining and finally releasing the sneai. Givh Water Fheely. Horses and oxen at work need water often. The ploughman carries his jug of water, or leaves his team to rest while he goes to tho house lor a drink. iiut tho team works harder than the driver, and needs drink as often; yet many toams are taken out early in the morning, to the prairie held, where there is no water ex- cept in the driver s ug, ana worxea nve or six bours betoro they can get a drop, Is it any wonder that they are injured by drinking too much when they are taken to the spring at noon f As an act of kindness to the horses and oxen that serve man so faithfully, and as a matter of economy, we recommend that in oases where water is not in or very near the field in which the team is at work, a tub or cask bu furnuhed, and filled with wa ter as regularly us the driver's jug. This, with a bucket, can be set in the wagon. and the team should be permitted to drink once every half day, and oftener if the weather is warm. If every one adopted this plan, we should hear no more of water founder." The teams would be more vigorous and hardy, and perform more work tor their owners. The Ciianoe. Uncle Bam a Down East farmer, known far and wide by his patriotic title had a neighbor who was in the habit of working on Sundays, but utter a while this bu.uuath-breu.lie joined the church. One day our friend met the minister to whoso church be be longed. "Well, Uncle Sam," said he. " do you see any difference in Mr. P- Bince he joined the church 'tn " Oh, yes,' said Uucle Kain, "a great difference, Before, when he went out to mend his fence on Sunday, he carried his axe on his shoulder, but now he carries it under nig coat." That Ioe Cave situat d somewhere in Iowa, we believe must be a grand place to visit about this time. August is said to be the very best month in whioh to see the cave, for then it is the frostiest. In the winter this rem ah able cave is warm and dry and free from ice, but when tho "heated term" comes on, water leaks through the- earth into the cave, and congelation begins. A oup of river water will skim wit h ice in twenty minutes, and freeze solid in an hour. When one emerges in midsummer from this ice cave into the outer world the sensation is like entering an oven in good baking order. For the benefit of all who desire to cool themselves off, we mention that this wonderful refrigerator is in the town of Dooorah, on the Little Iowa Kiver, twelve miles south of the Minnesota lino. .
