Lands. There are, snyi the Canada Farmer, two ways in which land may be ameliorated and brought into good tilth and oondition for grain crops, and then seeding down to grass. - The first is by growing root3 with the help of manure, to restore fertility and get rid of weeds, which can be done to most advantage on fields already well worked and smoothed down by the action of the plow". The other is by Summer fallowing. Potatoes. In the Farmers' Club. Mr. Nash said : Twenty years ago I heard f some experiments in placing potatoes on turf andv covering wifch mulch. " I tried the plan in a email way, using leaves chiefly, with a little over layer of straw to keep them in place. I removed the crop in October, and found the potatoes clean, and the yield I esti mated at the rate of 300 bushels per acre. To HotJSE-CiiEAinsKS. When you have taken up a dusty carpet, don't touch a broom-to the floor until you have taken a dust-pan and filled it with moist earth from the garden or elsewhere. Scatter the earth all over the floor ; then use your broom as if scrubbing, and finally sweep all up together. You will find that you raise scarcely any dust in the operation, and you will have a very clean floor, that scarcely needs mopping at all. Don't fail to try it once, and you will not need urging to repeat it. Geaham ani Indian Bread. Take hot water, though not scalding, and stir into it corn meal until it is about half thick enough for a good batter; then cool it with cold water, and make a thick batter by adding Graham flour ; give the whole & good stirring ; put iDto pans about three inches deep ; let it stand an hour or so, then put it into a hot oven, and bake steadily two hours and a half. When taken out, cover with thick cloths for an hour or two. It is best if eaten when warm, but is good cold. . When to Cut Ttmbbb. In the old of the moon of August, 1870, I cut down about half, an acre of small growth of timber, mostly hickory, from five to four teen inches in diameter. It lay in the tree as it fell till the following winter and spring, when I trimmed it up and chop ped it into stove wood, and put in wood house. . In the winter of 1871 and 1872 1 burned it for common fire-wood, and have not discovered any worm-eating or powder-post, as is common for wood in such circumstances. I saved a few butts for ax-handles. I split one of them the other day and found it as withy and free from worm-eating as the day it was cut. Correspondent. A Cuke fob Htdbophobia. A corres pondent of the Chicago Tribune states that the poison from tbe bite of a mad dog can be eliminated from the system by vapor baths. He quotes from an ar ticlo printed in a Paris medical journal by Dr. Buisson, a celebrated French sur geon," who says: "If the- disorder has declared itself, I prescribe a single bath, and leave the' patient in until a cure is effected. Hydrophobia may last three days, 'i Experience has , proved to . me that a cure is certain on the first day of the outbreak ; on the second day, doubt ful ; and on the third, hopeless, on ao-connt-of thedifiieulty of conveying the patient to the bath and keeping him in. And as hydrophobia -never breaks out . before the Seventh day, thre is time to perform a long journey to obtain a bath. Gas Lrsra and WrBE-WoBMa. A cor respondent of the London Field says: I have had some experience on three quarters of an acre of garden ground made from old turf land, and I feel sure the remedy which I adopted will answer the end on my land. The first and second years I was dreadfully pestered with wire-worm ; my potatoes, turnips, car rota, and other roots, were pierced through and through with this pest. A thought struck me that the application of spent gas lime would settle my ene- mies, so x sent lor two caruoaas irom the Den by Gas Works, and . I had it mixed with six times as much good soil and manure, equal quantities ; the man ure was chiefly sawdust upon which pigs had run. This was spread on the ground in November, and dug in a spade deep ; then in the Spring I put early and other potatoes and the general crop. with some light stable manure. " I had excellent crops that year and afterwards, but not a single wire-worm could I detect after that dressing. It is very important not ..to overdose with the gas lime ; di lute it well with soil and manure, and it will destroy grubs as well. Concentrated Estobt on the Farm. A Cape Cod correspondent, writing well in The Maine Farmer upon that old topic of going over too many acres in a superficial manner, makes some very in teresting statements in regard to his own practices. Three years ago he purchased a farm of 140 acres. When he took pos session he turned it all out to pasture with the exception of 25 acres. The first year he cut ten tons of hay, tilled about three acres, bought 25 tons of hay, v and stock to help eat it believing if it would pay to feed-hay that one rahed, it would pay to purchase it to feed. His hay crop has steadily increased in amount, but , he expresses his determination not to cultivate more than the 25 acres until he cuts 40" tons of hay, with five acres in field crops or two tons of hay to the acre. . To do this he intends to purchase and feed hay, shorts, cotton seed, or corn meaL and keep all tbe stock he can, applying all the dressing to the 25 acres until it reaches his standard of produc tion, then gradually taking in a larger area. He does not allow a single ounce of any substance that will make fertilizer to go to waste ; uses muck, loam, saw dust, fcc. ; used 50 loads of muck the pre sent winter in bedding his stock ; ties up his cattle at night, winter and summer; used 75 loads of old manure as a top dressing last fall ; steams all the hay and roots fed to his stock. He reads the pa pers carefully, and attends the meeting oi me x armers uiuo every wees. Exxr Totb Word.

After a long and fruitless search he set off for his neighbor's in great distress, to acknowledge his fault. But how great was his surprise to find the tool on his neighbor's door step! And it then appeared, from the prints of littte bare feet on tbe mnd, that the lad had got up in his sleep and carried it home, and went to bed again and knew it not. Of course, a boy who was prompt in his sleep was . prompt when awake. He lived respected, bad the confidence of his neighbors and was placed in many offices of trust and promise.

Items of General Interest., ,j The New York Democratic State Con vention endorsed the Cincinnati resolu-. tiocs. Horace Greeley has resigned his posi tion as editor-in-chief of the New York Tribune. The UOHStUicmnel says three more French departments will soon be evacu ated by the Germans. A terrible fire occurred in Brooklyn, N. Y. Fourteen tenement-houses were burned, rendering homeless a hundred families. Stocks in San Francisco are complete ly demoralized. The break is ono of the worst ever known, extending through the entire list. Cincinnati is said to be the most densely populated city in the United States, having 36,000 people to the square mile, while JNew xork has but 2d,UUU.

Engineer James Wood ran a special train from Rochester to Syracuse, a dis- tance of eigStv-one miles in eighty-two minutes. This, for the distance, is the fastest time on record. The last expedition to Cocos Island in search of treasure, supposed to have been buried there by pirates, has failed, and fourteen persons from the expedition have returned to San Francisco.

A new line of iron steamships from Philadelphia to Liverpool Will soon com mence regular trips, and then will be seen the novel spectacle in American waters of the launch of an American iron steamship, built of American materials, owned by American capital, and to be manned by American seamen. The four steamers of this line are to be named the Pennsylvania, the Ohio, the Indiana, and the Illinois. They are going to solve a maritime war problem by making the British iron clad Hotspur hurl her Titanic bolts or nve hundred weight apiece against the revolving turrets of tha iron-clad Glat ton, in order to test the real strength of revolving turrets, the advantages and disadvantages of the system under fire, and other points which can only be proven by actual experiment. To the GruM. We have lately seen it stated that in one town, four girls were married at the same hour, about months ago. ' Two of them have separated from their husbsnds, and the otuer two are trying for divorces. Such things ought to wake up the girls to a sense of their danger. Uirls talk and laugh about marriage as though it was a jubilee, a jolly gladsome thing, a rose without a thorn. And so it is, if it is all right, if they go about it like ra tional being-", instead of merry-making children. It is a serious thing to marry It is a life business and that of heart and happiness. Therefore, never do it in haste; never run away to get married; never steal a marriage; never marry for wealth, ' or standing, or fine person, or manners, but only for character, for worth, for the qualities of mind and heart, which make an honorable man Take time, think long and well before you accept any proposal, consult your parents, then some judicious mend, then your own judgment. Learn all it is possible for you to learn of vour pro posed husband; when all doubts are re moved, and not till then, aocept him Neveb Knew What Ktlt.ed Htm. An old farmer went out one day looking over his broad acres, with an ax on his shoulder and a small dog at his heels. They espied a woodchuck. 1 The dog gave chase, and drove mm into a stone' wall, where action immediately com menced. The dog would draw the wood- chuck partly out from the wall," and the woodchuoK would taKe the dog back. The old farmer's sympathy getting high on the side of the dog, he thought he must help him. Putting himself in po sition, with the ax raised, he waited for the attraction of the woodchuck, when he would cut him down. So an oppor tunity offered, and the old man struck, but the woodchuck gathering up at the same time, took the dog in far enough to receive the blow, and the dog was killed on the spot. Forty years after. the old man in relating the-story, would always add. "And that dog don't know to this day but what the woodchuck killed him." . Jathawkihg. An article t by Judge Ulannay, in TJie Kansas Magazine, gives the origin of the word "Jay hawkers, as used in Kansas history. In 1856, an individual named Pat Devlin was seen enterinsr the village of Ossawotomie, in Miami County. He was riding a mule, and loaded with no inconsiderable amount of plunder You look as if you had been out on an excursion, said some one to him. " Yes," said Pat. "I have been ont iavhawking." Pat explained that the jayhawker was a bird iu Ireland which warned its prey before devouring it Sharp Girl. A gentleman once asked a ltttle cirl. how many sisters she bad, and was told "three or four." Her mother- asked Mary. when they were alone what had induced her to tell such an untruth. "Why, mamma," cried Mary, "I didn't want him think you were so poor tbat you hadn t but one child Wouldn't pe thought we w?re dreffol poor ? " Anthracite Coal. The anthracite tonnage this year, savs a JNew xorK journal, nas tnus jar been unusually large. The territorv from wuicn almost all our anthracite coal comes js, when com pared with the amount and value of the product a singularly small one. If any of our readers will take the trouble to cut from a piece of paper a rectangle rep resent on ine map OI .reimivamu space a Hundred mues long ana loriy broad, they will find that by placing it with its length in a direction between north and north-east it can be made to cover the area from which we receive all but a small nortion of our s jpdIv. In other words, all but comparatively little of what now constitutes the great bulk of fuel used for industrial and domestic purposes by the cities, large villages, and, to no inconsiderable extent, the ru ral districts, of the four Middle States and New England, comes from a region 63s than half the size of the State of New Jersey. The value of the antnracite coal carried over the various railroads and cantis since tbe first of January, if reckoned at what its price is by the time it reaches the consumer, has been, on an average, not far from seven or eight million dol lars a montb, or about three-fourths the interest per month of the national debt. The numbe." of persons supported by the business, including the wives and children of those employed in all its va rious blanches, cannot be much short of five hundred thousand. Indeed, when we consider the number of men connec ted with the railroads, which are enga d principaiiy in coai transportation, we are not sure hat even this is not too small an estimate. The amount of physical power requir ed in the transportation of anthracite coal is a very interesting feature of the of the business. Its aggregate is literally stupenduous. If we imagine a moun tain in the form of a cone, a quarter of a mile in diameter at the base, and a thousand feet high, we shall get a pretty aceurate idea of the bulk of anthracite which, at the rate up to the present time, will have been taken to market in the year 1872. And if we consider that this vast quantity of so heavy a substance as coal has been moved an average dis tance by land carriage of over a hundred miles about one-sixth of it having in its journey been hanled by railroad from a deep valley up a grade formerly considered impracticable even for pas senger trains, to an elevation of several bnndred feet we shall obtain no more than a fair idea of the motive-power which has been used. As an illustration of tbe physical force which the human mind can control by means of machin ery, we know of few things which are more striking than such a transportation of so immense a quantity and weight of material. Eight Hours a Day. The United States Seoretary of War has sent to the Senate reports from the Com mandants of the Snringfaeld Armory and the Bock Island Arsenal, giving a com parative statement showing the opera tions of the Eight-hour law. With re card to the Kock Island Arsenal, the Commandant says he believed it was ex pected that under the law the employees would work more willingly, more mtelli eenOv. and with more strength and de spatch than under the ten-hour system. and that therefore, more work would be done per hour to compensate, or partially compensate!, the government for two hours' work, i This expectation has not been realized at that arsenal. It has been claimed thatif the men worked only eight hours per day that the ad-litional leisure time allowed them would generally be devoted to reading sand study, and other wise to the benefit of .their social, moral and mental conditions, thereby making them better and more valuable workmen and citizens. This expectation has been partially realized in the case of carpen ters and mechanics, but has not been re alized to any considerable extent in the case of masons and stone cutters. The leisure time has been generally an injury lather than a benefit in the case of labor ers. Those in the latter class have gen erally no houses of their own, and their leisure time in most cases is more pro ductive of bad habits than of good. The Commandant of the bpringfield Armory says a careful calculation shows that an average saving of about S500 per year for gas for lighting purposes is effec ted by reducing the number of hours from ten to eight, wliich saving is principally in the short days of the winter months. Ihe total saving in coal and gas is S2.900 per year of 300 working days in favor of the eight-hour svstem, about equal to tho wages of three workmen for the same time. On account of the variable nature. and the amount of work done before and after the introduction of the eight-hour system, some sixteen different models of guns having been worked on since the close of the war, it is found impossible to ive accUrate and reliable data re- garding the costof work by day workmen under the two systems, except, perhaps, that it is believed that tne rates of tore- men, assistant foremen, inspectors, help ers, policemen, &c, to the piece work men were not materially affected by the reduction in the length of the working clay. Pkogbess op the Hoosao TPNNIIi 'he IHoosac tunnel, since it was began some eighteen years ago, has, from time to time, taken up the attention of the public, especially of the people of Mass achusetts and ner legislators. Some times its progress has been so slow that it has been almost completely lost to public notice, and repeatedly its pros pects have lived a precarious life in the halls of legislation. Especially in 1872, strong combined effort was made to defeat the project, though, after a long and animated discussion, it was finally decided by a considerable majority in both nouses to pledge the credit of the state for the sum then needed a pledge it has been frequently called uponPto rl new. However, since the Messrs. Shand ly entered upon their contract, three years ago, the work has been pushed for ward with great vigor and determination, and it is calculated now that the excava tion will be completed the entire distanoe of four and a half miles by the first of March, 1874. it is sumcieutly wide for a double track, and railroads are in running ; order on both sides. Boston ijlobe. A Gentle Bebukb. A lady,- riding in a car on the New York Central Bail-road,- was disturbed in her reading by the conversation of two gentlemen occu pying the seat just before her. One of them seemed to be a student of some college on his way home for vacation. lie used much profane language, greatly to the annoyance of the lady. She thought she would rebuke him, and on begging pardon for interrupting them. asked the young student if be had stud ied the languages. "Yes, madam ; I have mastered the languages quite well. "Do you read and speak Hebrew?" '.Quite fluently. " "Will you be so kind as to do me a small favor? ' " With great pleasure, I am at your service. win you be so kind as to do vour swearing in Hebrew?" we may well suppose the lady was not annoyed any more by the ungentlemanly language of this woulo. be gentleman. David Scott and Mitchel Cherest, the men who murdered three inmates of a house of ill-fame at Bull Bun, near Windsor .Locks Conn, in January last, and who were subsequently arrested in Van Wert, O.. were found guilty of murder in the second degree and sen tenced to tbe State prison for life. A Pennsylvania Village Destroyed. A Pittsburg paper, speaking of the de struction of the village of Somerset, says : Fully three-fourths of the town is de- stroyed, and insurance ior tne panry sum of 860.000 is all that covers the loss of fully 81,000,000. The fire commenced in a livery stable at the extreme end of the town about 4 o'clock in the afternoon, and seemine.lv in less time than it takes to write this sentence had swept complete- wr,nlM,sinfiss tiortion 6f the x,, . , oa n . , villasre. The wind was blowing hard, and carried sparks and burning shingles in all directions, so that while tne lemnea inhabitants were endeavoring to stay the fire in one place it would break out m another far ahead. It was tho story of Chicago ovei again, except that the build ings were almost all of wood, and burned as soon as caught. Every grocery in the" place, with one exception, and every hotel but the Barnett House, the two printnig offices, and the Lutheran and Presbyte rian churches were burned. Iu almost every case the unfortunate sufferer from the devouring elements lost his all, and well-to-do farmers of the day before be came beggars without a place to sleep at night. Numbers, of course, passed that and the succeeding night in the open air, few having quarters adequate to protect them from tbe chill breezes and damp winds that follow the going down of the sun. Tbe destitution is indeed great, and the charitable people of New York would not be going out of their way in sending aid to the unfortunate of their sister State. Here in Pittsburg efforts, of course, are being made to assist the sunermg ones, while the City of Brotherly Love cannot fail to lend a helping hand. Somerset is the capital of the county ol the same . . . -k SI name, and the population in low was 2,776. The town was burned once before, somewhere about the year 1830. The burning of Somerset certainly points a moral : every village in the land is equally liable to a similar fate, and for that very reason more attention should be paid to the matter of insurance. Out of the im mense amount of property destroyed in this conflagration, but one-sixteenth, as we have said, was insured. Had the prop erty been insured, as it ought to have been, men who now have lost their all would have had a comfortable mainten ance to fall back upon. Let the inhabi tants of other villages, then, take warning, and not short-sightedly grudge premiums paid on insurance policies. The Electoral Vote.

Horace Greeley has accepted the nom mation tendered him at Cincinnati. In his letter he said, after referring to the platform, the substance of which we have given betore. These propositions, so ably and forci bly presented in the platform of your convention, have already fixed the atten tion and command the assent of a large majority of our countrymen, who joyfully adopt them, as I do, as the bases of a true, beneScieut national reconstruction of a new departure from jealousies, strifes, and hates, which have no longer adequate motive or even plausible pre text, into an atmosphere of peace, fra ternity, and mutual good will. In vain do the drill-sergeants of decaying organ izations nourish menacingly their trun cheons, and angrily insist that the fils shall be closed and strengthened ; in vain do the whippers-in of parties once vital because rooted in the vital needs of the hour protest against straying and bolting, denouncing men nowise then- inferiors as traitors and renegades, and threaten them with infamy and ru'.n. I I am confident that the American people have already made your cause their own. fully resolved that their brave hearts and strong arms shall bear it on to triumph. In this faith, and with the distinct un derstanding that, if elected, I shall be the President not of a party, but of the whole people, 1 accept your nomination, in the confident trust that the masses ol our countrymen, North and South, are eager to clasp hands across the bloodv chasm which has too long divided them, forgetting that they had been enemies in the joyful consciousness that they are and must nenceiortn remain brethren, Yours, gratefully, HOBACE GEEELET.

Ihe Missis sippi telegraph line was demolished for a great distance, and covered with earth and uprooted trees. What Caused It. From the testimo ny given in New York in regard to the Niblo's Garden fire, the Fire Marshal thinks that a pane of glass was broken in one of the skylights, and that a spark or piece of lighted paper from the adia- cent hotel chimney was carried in, which set fare to some of the light materia with which the space above the dome was filled. ' " "-f Stopped it. A woman has been ar rested in San Francisco for attempting to erase from tbe tombstone of her child that portion of its name which it took from her nrst husband.

The Senate discussed at "length the re port of the conference committee on tho Deficiency bill, and passed it by a vote of 35 to 34. The Senate passed the Baltimore and Potomac Depot bill, after rejecting seve ral amendments which were offered to it. Various bills were reported by the Committees on Indian Affairs and on Public Lands. A lesolution to erect an equestrian statue to the late Gen. Baw lins was also reported. ' The Senate passed the Supplementary Apportionment bill, providing for an ad ditional representative for several speci fied States. The suspension of the habeas corpus act was discussed at length. HOUSE. Mr. Trumbull offered the Amnesty bill, but it was rejected, by a vote of 23 to 22. Mr. Sumner called up his Oivil Bights bill as an amendment, which was also again rejected. The election bill passed by a vote of 36 to 17. The mission to the Central American states beings retained by the Senate ap propriation bill, Mr. Brooks and pthers objected to it, and it was rejected. In the House the Tariff bill was dis cussed. The article of quinine was set down for ten per cent. tax. The book and paper questions next came up, and the duty was placed at twelve and a half cents per pound, with some exceptions, which are placed on the free list. An effort to have tbe House adjourn until the last Thursday in November, was de cided ot of order, and the House de termined to adjourn sine die on the 31 of June. A resolution offered by Mr. Beck, making one-third of the customs duties receivable in legal tender notes, was passed. Quinine was placed on tho free list. The House of Representatives passed the Tariff aud Tax bill as it now stands, and immediately after resolved to concur in the Senate's resolution for adjournment on the 29th. A motion was made by Mr. Butler that the Presi dent be requested to inform the House who had made the promise, referred to by Sir Stafford Northcote in his recent speech on the Washington Treaty, that the claim for indirect damages would not be presented if the Senate could have the opportunity of getting out of the scrape without disgrace. The resolution was referred. The House passed tho Senate amend ment to the Post-office Appropriation bill, known as the Pacific mail subsidy. Mr. Banks reported favorably Butler s resolution asking for information about the promise of withdrawing the indirect claims to which Sir Stafford Nortbcote referred in his receat speech. On taking the floor preliminary to a long speech on tbe treaty, Butler said the British Com missioner must have been misreported or lacking in memory. He had eery reason to believe that no such promise had been given. A Sad Death. A communication from Oldenburg, Germany, says : The young wife of one of our most respected citizens has been (buried. Her sad end hns awakened the deepest sympathy in ail circles. . A few days ago she was m perfect health, and went down into the cellar with a lighted candle to fetch some wood. Upon opening the door of the cellar a cat sprang past her, while at the same time a dreadful pain caused her to utter a pierciDg shriek. The ser vants hurried to her assistance, and found her stretched on floor the in con vulsions. The poor woman kept pressing her left leg and on searching for the cause they found a large rat which had bitten her severely on the left knee. The furious animal had, it seems, been pursued by the cat, and had taken refuge under her clothes. After lingering a few days in dreadful suffering, during which she was almost reduced to a skele ton, the poor woman died. - Buffalo, N. Y., Deo. 13, 1870. Dr. B. V.

The persons who have scruples of conscience against " perpendicular drink inu" at tavern bars, can become blind drunk on almost any of the ailvcrtised ''tonics" or ' invioran's" in balf an hour. There is however one ex ception to this rule; Nobody can ." pet over the bay" on Vinegar Bitters, for the simple reason that this famous renova ting and regulating medicine contains i;o diffusive stimulants of any kind. Yet its strenoth-reservmcr properties are marvel ous. I t restores the relish for food when all other appitizCrs fail ; imparts unwonted vigor to the digestive (unctions ; regulates the flow of bile ;. soothes the nervous .sys tem; promotes healthful sleep; and tend to produce that condition of body and brain, which is supposed to be most con ducive to longevity and the enjoyment of life. Its specific effects in acute and cbronio disorders effecting the stomach, the bowels, the spine, the kidneys, tho fleshy fibre, the muscles and the lungs, are considered by competent iudces the most extraordinary medical phenomena of the age. Vinegar Bitters has now a larger sale than any of tbe spirituous astringents, and its immense popularity in a land where the people observe closely, test thoroughly, and act independently, is in itself a sufficient guarantee oft he excellence of the medicine.

Such is the name bestowed upon a medicinal spring which appears n the battlefiold at Gettysburg, which is winning a tame as world wide as that of the great battle fought around it. The Btory ef its discovery by the wounded in the battle is the projection of one of the ancient fables into our modern history. Almost equally fabulous are some of its cures. Even the medical jour nals admit that it is not only a remedy for the worst forms, but for nearly every variety of our chronic diseases. Its waters are being carried to every part of tho world, for they neither loose their taste or medicinal virtue by bottling or exposure to the atmosphere. Sco advertise ment in anothor column. Com.
