Moses's Wife. As I was paying pas
toral visits some years ngo, hi the State of Tennessee, a lady said to me, 'I'm very glad you've corns. I was reading iu the Uible the other day about Mosus marrying a nir2r, and I wish you would explain the matter.' 'I don't ruad that way in the Hibta,' I re plied : 'it reads that Mjsm married an Ethiopian woman.' 'Well, doesn't that mean a nigger ?' - 'I will tell you how it was,' I answered. 'There was a terrible war wac;ed by the Ethiopians ngaiut the Explains, aud two great armies sent from Eypl against them had been destroyed. The Ethiopians were governed by a magui limit queen, some thins like SomiramU, who led out her own armies, and who kuew liow to gain a vic tory. Hut when Moses was sect with a third Egyptain army a :iaiut her, he asked the huipof God, aud managed so wisely that the queen agreed to surrender her forces to him, and becomo tributary to Egypt, pro vided he would marry her.' Well, said the old lad', ' rt.i tun It wu.vii"f Ofi.v cimiwn uigycr.1 There is current a so'd story of a Scotch milk boy which may be of interest in thess d iys of complaint about the adul eratiou of milk. A boy delivering milk was stopped the othcr4day by two detective officers, who asked him if anything was put into it. 'Ou, ay,' v. as the answer. Thereupon th officers, thinking th-y had a clear case, "ilfeied him a jn-nny if he would tell them what. Ah,' said be, with a grin, ye wndna gie's the icuny though I tuli'tyc' '(), yes, we will,' said the ollicers. 'iies't then,' returned the lad : and the penny was bauded over with the question : 'Now, what do you put in the milk 'r' '(),' said the boy, with a cunning look, 'I pit the measure in every lime I tak' ony ool !' That youth has a bright future Ix fore him. How Sin: it. In thu poliire court iu the city of Chicago, a few weeks since, a wife, thus ingeniously explained away serious charges of harsh treatment of her poor husband : 'One day when she was running across the room with a fork in her hand he jumped in the way and strnck his wrist against the fork, wrenching it from her grip by the prongs, which he ran into his wrist. Tlieu he endeavored to strike her, but she held up a pan of hot dishwater between them, and he spilled it all over his head. Then he got still more angry at this accident, and started to jump at her, but his head came against her hand, aud he fell down, she took li d of his hair to raise him up, and the hair was moistened by il.e hot water, so that it came o.'T. Then she saw it was no uv. to reason with him any longer, so she left the house.' The Wnot-K Loaf. A geutleman re lates : Some years ince I boarded at a hotel, the proprietor of which was a newly nyrried man. The maiden name of his epouse was Crumb. Immediately after marriage, and when the hotel business commenced, old lady Crumb, he daughter Peggy, and her two sous, John Ike, re gularly domiciled themselves within the hospitable walls of the inn. The landlord was a good natured, easy-going sort of a fel low, Dot quite as smart as some folks ; but one day he got off the following. Address ing me, he said, 'Look a hayr, Sam, I'll Udl you just how it is : when I got married I thought I was getting a Crumb, but I'll be hanged if I don't belcive 2 got the hull loaf.' At a reeent prayer-meeting of colored leople at Erie, the decency and good order of the meetiug being destoryed by a negro, named Urown, whose prayers in public were only Incoherent lavings, the pastor inquired : 'What f ol uigga's dat prayiug' down dar nea' de do' ?' A dozen people replied with one voice : 'It am .Erudder Brown, sab.' 'Den,' replied the pastor, 'Bruddor Erowu subside, au 1 let some one pray dat's better' quinted wid le Lord.' An Odd Taste. 'Aud have you had no other ion ?' asked a curious lady of a bronzed old sea captain. 'Oh, yes, madam. I had one that lived in the South Sea Is lands for nearly a dozen years.' 'Itcallyl Was he bred there, and what was his taste the sea or the land ?' 'No, madam, he wasn't bread, he was meat leastways the natives ate hitrf : aud as for his taste the chief said he tas'.ed of terCaeker." Some on says if we would show our selves really ood to our daughters we 'must be generous to them in a truer sense than that of hunting trinkets on their necks.' No words could be more sensible. Xine giris out of ten would rather have a camel's hair shawl thau a necklace. Parents should remember this. A maiikied mau, hearing that the eat ing of certain kinds of animal food would aid the same tissues of tlx human body as for iustauce, calves brains would nourish the eater' brains, or beefs liver the eater's liver immediately gave strict orders at his family market that no more tongue of any kind be sold to his wid; or niother-iit-law. A near-mmited and inquistive slander kicked au ornamental dog on a street stoop to see if it was olid or hollow. It was not solely an ornamental dog, however, but one that was there on business, and the licui-sight'-d and inquisitive stranger is now quarantiii'-d at hi hotel for a few day. Dakwiv acknowledged himself sold wjieu his little niece asked him, seriously, what a cat has that uo other animal bus. He gave it up, after mature deliberation, and the sly little puss answered ; 'Littens.' When a Harrisburg woman chases her boy with a Lioom, he runs down to the river and jumps into the water. When he comes out his face is washed ; his mother docs not know him, aud he is safe. .Josh Hillings says. Vu kaut liud con tentment laid down on the map, it iz an imaginary place uot settled yet, aud those reach it soonest who throw away their compass and go it blind. 4 Wn vr. is lit a ven's best gift to man V a.-ked a young lady the other night, smil ing bweetiy ou.a pieasaut-lookiDg cleik. 'A boss !' replied the young man, with great prudence. 'O George, your sister is a nice girl but she does dress her head up so. 'Yes,' said George ; 'but it is the fashion ; there's nothing in it, you know.' 'I "JC not much for ehtump spa ken,' de clared a candidate nt Debuque, 'hut for honesty and capacity and integrity, I bate the divil so I do.' If you wish to know how many friends you have, gel into office ; if you wish to know how many you haven't, get into trou ble. ; ...

Walker's Caliiornia Vine- par Hitters aro a purely Vegetable E reparation, made chiefly from the natiro erbs found on the lower ranges of the Sierra Nevada mountains of California, the medicinal properties of which are extracted therefrom without the ase of Alcohol. The question is almost daily asked, " What is the cause of tho unpar alleled success of YiSECAii Bitteks ? ' Our answer is, that they remove tho cause of disease, and the patient recov ers his health. They are the preat blood purifier and a life-giving princi ple, a perfect Renovator and Invigorator of the system. Never before in tho his tory of the world has a medicine lxon compounded possessing tho remarkable qualities of Vixegar Bitteks in healing the rick of every disease man ia heir to. They are a pentlo Purgative ns well ns a Tonic, relieving Congestion or Inflammation of the Liver and Visceral Organs ia Uilioaa The properties of Dr. Walker's Vinegar Hitters are -Apnricnt, Diaphoretic, Carminative, Nutritious, Laxative, Diuretic, Sedative, Counter-irritant, Sudorific, Altera tive, and Anti-Bilious. Grateful Thousands proclaim Vin egar Bitters the most wondarful Invigor ant that ever sustained the sinking system. No Person can take these Bitters according to directions, and remain long unwell, provided their bones are not de stroyed by mineral poison or other means, and vital organs wasted beyond repair. Bilious, Remittent, and Inter mlttent Fevers, which are so prev alent in the valleys of our great rivers throughout the United States, especially those of the Mississippi, Ohio, Missouri, Illinois, Tennessee, Cumberland, Arkan sas, Red, Colorado, Brazos, Kio Grande, Pearl, Alabama, Mobile, Savannah, Ro anoke, James, and many others, with their vast tributaries, throughout our entire country during tho Summer and Autumn, and remarkably so daring sea sons of unusual heat and dryness, are invariably accompanied by extensive derangements of tho stomach and liver, and other abdominal viscera. In their treatment, a purgative, exerting a pow erful influenco upon these various or gans, is essentially necessary. There is no cathartic for the purpose equal to Db. J. Walker's YrxEGAR Bitters, as they will speedily remove the dark colored viscid matter with which the bowel3 are loaded, at the samo time stimulating the secretions of the liver, and generally restoring the healthy functions of tho digestive organs. Fortify the body against disease by purifying all its fluids with Veteoar Bitters. No epidemic can take hold of a svstem thus fore-armed. Dyspepsia or Indigestion, Head ache Fain in tho Shoulders, Coughs, Tightness of tho Chest, Dizziness, Sour Eructations of the Stomach, Bad Taste in the Mouth, Bilious Attacks, Palpitation of the Heart, Inflammation of tho Lnngs, Pain in tho region of tho Kidneys, and a hundred other painful symptoms, are the offsprings of Dyspepsia. One bottlo will prove a better guarantee of its merits than a lengthy advertisement. Scrofula, or King's En), White Swellings, Ulcers, Erysipelas, Swelled Neck, Goitre, Scrofulous Inflammations, Indolent Inflammations, Mercurial Affec tions, Old Sores, Eruptions of the Skin, Sore Eyes, etc., etc. In these, as in all other constitutional Diseases, Walker's VrsEGAR Bitters have shown their great curative powers in tho most ob stinate and intractable cases. for Inflammatory ml Chronic Rheumatism, Gout, Bilious, Remit tent and Intermittent Fevers, Diseases of the Blood, Liver, Kidneys and Blad der, these Bitters have no equal. Such Diseases are caused by Vitiated Blood. Mechanical Diseases. Persons en gaged in Paints and Minerals, such as Plumbers, Type-setters, Gold-beaters, and Miners, as they advance in life, are subject to paralysis of tho Bowels. To guard against this, take a dose of Walk er's Ytkegar Bitters occasionally. For Skin Diseases, Eruptions, Tet ter, Salt-Rheum, Blotches. Spots, Pimples, Pustules, Boils, Carbuncles, Ring-worms, Scald-head, Sore Eyes, Erysipelas, Itch, Scurfs, Discolorations of the Skin, Humors and Diseases of the Skin of whatever nam or nature, are literally dug up and carried out of the system in a short time by the use of these Bitters. . Pin, Tape, and other Worms, lurking in the system of so many thousands, are effectually destroyed and removed. No system of medicine, no vermifuges, no an thehninitics will free the system from worms like these Bitten. For Female Complaints, in young or old, married or single, at the dawn of wo manhood, or the turn of life, these Tonic Bit ters display so decided an influence that im . provement is soon perceptible. Cleanse the Vitiated Blood when ever you find its impurities bursting through the skin in Pimple?, Eruptions, or Sores; cleanse it when you find it obstructed and sluggish ia the veins ; cleanse it when it is foul ; your feelings will tell you when. Keep the blood pure, and the health of tho system will follow. ; r. ii. Mcdonald & co DrugpiaU and Gen. Agts San Kronclaoo, California, anil cor. of Wnihinirton and Charlton Pta.. N. Y.

Every year or to we have new varieties of tomatoes intro duced, said to be moch earlier than any inai ever came before, and one would sun- pose that withal the new improvements in tne eariy direction something had really been gained. "We have a rfcht to exnect something surely, yewe think that on the wnoie tne tomato Is no earlier than it ever was. If there have been varioi.;. than others, they have died out, and left us just where we started from. Thirtv or forty years ago the great effort was to have tomatoes fit to eat on the fourth of Julv This was the great particular time, and any one succeeding in getting a good fair quantity by this date, was regarded as w uco Earueuern. rve are not sure but this was regarded as a good test , s i ?a . . . ui ouo b tiuaimcations. At any rate, "will you have ripe tomatoes by the fourth ?' was the standing question with the million in horticulture. And how is it now t Hoir much earlier than by the fourth can uv one about here have tomatoes ?' - We know of none now more than in the time one by. One of our friends has made the tomato question an especial study this season, col lecting all the varieties he could kl mHv and late. To his astonishment tha Mrii.f w www As VO m was the Trophy, and yet thouah it haa a good reputation as a superior variety, it has not been celebrated fot its earliness. He does not think, however, it will always be in ad vance. His theory ia that they are never true on time, that what is the earli est one seasou may not be at another, and so on. now this may be we dont know, but we think it will surprise many that the Trophy should this year prove an extra early kind, lie gathered his Trophies on the twenty-first of July ; not just one or so, but enough for his family dinner; and al though this is not the fourth,' it is regard ed here as pretty good for this particular season, and pretty good for the Trophy we buiDa at any rate. If ana one in thia vici nity has been able to beat this fair and square in the open ground, and not against wails or other favored Dlaces. we should like to know, and also the kind. If there is really an extra early tomato we should like to know what it is. On our own premises, it is true, we ate our first ripe tomato, only one. on the 19th. and about every day since. On the 23d we had a family stew of them. But we had not a 'mess' until the 23d, aud therefore cannot compete with our young friend. Our variety is the Fiiii im Droved" at least it is so-called. Germantoum Tele- graph. Clover. There is no crop raised on the farm which tends more to the improve ment of the soil than clover, and as a for age crop it is equal to any other crop under cultivation. Though it is more dif ficult to make into hay than timothy or herds grass, yet if any part is lost in mak ing and gathering the clover hay, the soil will receive the enriching deposit. Clover will grow in almost any soil which is not too wet, but its favorite is deep sandy loam, in which the long tap root can pene trate deep down. It borrows more of its growth from the atmosphere than most other crops. The tap root draws most of its nourishment from the subsoil, and tbe tops extract largely from the dew and the atmosphere, thereby greatly enriching the surface soil for wheat and timothy. A good crop of clover in full blossom, tops and roots, will sum np in weight between eight and ten tons of green vegetable matter per acre to plow nnder to enrich and mellow the soil ; and where can be found a cheaper manure to improve a heavy soil ? Lime and clover are the cheapest means by which to enrich the land for the growth of wheat. Stable manure is decidedly the best, but it is entirely too dear, and farmers must re sort to other means to keep up the fertility of their land. . I have met with much success in raising clover among oats, but the ground must be well-cultivated to ensure a good growth of clover. After the oats crop is sown and well-harrowed, next pass over the field with a draz to crush the clods and level the ground. Tbe drag to be six feet long with a block nailed on one of the hind cor ners underneath, by which every 'bout' will mark off a land twelve feet wide, which is the right width to sow clover-seed at two casts ; and after the clover is sown harrow the ground to cover the seed. To sow clover seed on winter-grain, March is the right time when there is snow on the ground. Take a span of horses to a sled and mark the field off in lands of pro per width to sow by ; then let the sowers follow the sled. Clover can be sown much evener on the snow than otherwise, be cause you can see precisely whether yon are sowing it even or not. In my opinion clover is under-estimated by farmers, and should be much more in cultivation than is general. A clover lot near tbe pig-pea can be cut four or live times during the summer if not left go to blossom, and it makes the most economical feed for swine ; and if it is mowed down about the time the blossom begins to form and slightly wilted and free from dew and moisture and pack ed away with sufficient salt, the hogs will relish it as much in the winter season as cattle, and it makes good feed for sows and pigs.

Pare and put them into a saucepan, with the parings at the top ; then fill with hard water, cover close, and set over a gentle fire till they turn reddish ; let them stand till cold ; pnt them iota a clear, thick simp ; boll them for a few minutes ; set them on one side till quite cold ; boil them again in tbe same manner ; the next day boil tkem until they look eleae ; if the sirup ia not thick enough boil it more ; when cold, put brandied paper over the fruit. The quinces may be halved or quartered. -m r ' To Pkesebtb Pea as. Take peart not quite ripe and peel off the skins. Prepare a sirup with three-quarters of a pound of sugar to each pound of fruit.

Sdkeps' Hearts Boasted. Having washed the hearts, stuff each with an onion parboiled and then minced fine, two tablespoonaful of bread-crumbs, half a teaspoonfuT of chapped or dry sage, and sufficient black pepper and salt to season highly. Press tbe stuffing well into the hearts, and if necessary, fasten a little muslin over the top to keep it in. Whilst roasting baste frequently. They may also be baked, but ear must be taken not to let them get dry. Any heart that may be left is excellent hashed. Potted Ox-Tosogk. Cut about a posrad and a half from an uusmoked boiled tongue, and re move the skin. Pound it In a mortar as fine as possible, with six ounces of butter, a little cayenne, a small spoonful of pounced mace nntmeg, and cloves beaten fine. When perfect ly pounded, and the spice well blended with the meat, press it into small potting-pana, and poor clarified butter over the top. A little roast veal added to the potted tongue is an Improvement. '
