THE NEW MODE OF CUBING BEEF. The editor of the Corpus Christi (Texas) Advertiser gives an interesting account of the new mode of curing beef by the process of infiltration as witnessed at a packing es tablishment in Texas. The editor says : Per invitation of Mr. Turner, we were "in at the death" of the first beef at the Nueces packing establishment on Wednesday last.— Quite a crowd of visitors, attracted by curi osity were present to witness the not el op eration of curing beef by infiltration. A fine fat bullock had been selected, and when we arrived the workmeD had alieady performed the knock down operation. The beef was upon his back, and a saw was cut ting its way through the brisket, to enablt theoperatoi to get at the heart, thin done.an incision was then made in the r'gbi ventricle of the heart, the carcass turned upon its side and the blood allowed to escape. Then it was again rolled upon its back, a small incis ion made in the left ventricle of the heart and and a small hoes pipe inserted. It may be necessary to slate that to the pipe was at tached a rubber hose, and by traei. g the hose about ten feet in the direction of thb building it terminated in a barrel of brine, boistert there by means of a windlass The pipe inserted full length, entering the j-i/uUr *< <n and then secured by a stout tvrd. T brine was turned on and the process of infiltration commenced. The first incision on the right ventricle of the heart wa6 closed by a damp. We watched patiently to see the effect.— Soon the carcass became stiff and rigid, and cooled rapidly. Mr. Turner, by a dex'erous and skillful operation, amputated about an inch of the tail. Instead t Mood, brfne spir ted out with force. A• 1 took a taste and "acknowledged the corn." In ten minutes the brine that had been through the veins was as cool as when it came from the tank Incisions were made to difii-rvot parts of the carcass, and from each, jets of brine would epirt to the distance of three our four feet. The carcass was again rolled upon its side the clamp taken off the incision on the right ventricle, and out came the brine that bad traveled, through every artery and vein where blood circulate!. By continuing to force in the brine, the blood was forced out,so that in fifteen or tweoiy minutes the eacap ing brine was but slightly colored with blood By this time the carcass was cold and stiff, ready to skin, cut up, pack and ship to any part of the world. TO KEEP GRAPES FRESH. In the fall, when they are perfectly ripe, they are taken from the vines ; when they are free from anything like moisture, handled carefully and packed in small kegs—nail kegs are the kind generally used. Put a layer ol green leaves, right off the vines,in the bottom on these a layer of grapes, then leaves again and grapes alternately, until the keg is full, then finish off with leaves—Put in the head, and your kegs are ready for what ? Why to be bored in the ground. Dig a trench so as to admit casks deep enough that they will have about one foot or fifteen inches of soil over them when covered. The ground sho'd be packed moderately tight and a botrd laid long tbe top before the ground is thrown in Then throw some litter on the surface of the ground over those which you wish to take up duriDg the winter, to prevent the ground from freezing ao hard aa to keep you from getting them, One important thing must be observ* ed that tbey be placed where there can be no standing water about tbe kegs, or they will suffer.
