East-madb Pudding. Take half a
pound each of currants, flour, and
chopped beef suet, four ounces treacle,
and a breakfast-cupful of milk ; add a
little spice ; mix well together, and boil
it in a cloth or basin for four hours.
Bice Cakes. Boil rice until it is soft,
and while warm make it into cakes or
flat balls. Dip the balls into a beaten
egg, and then roll them in Indian meal
till thoroughly coated. This done, fry
them in lard, which is better than butter
for this purpose. Serve them with sauce,
or with butter, or with cream and sugar.
Good Men Make Gecra Horses. A
horse is never vicious or intractable with
out a direct cause. If a horse is restive or
timorous you may he sure that these
faults arise from defects in his education.
He has been treated either awkardly or
brutally. Commence the education of a
horse at his birth ; accustom him to the
presence, voice and sight of man ; speak
and act gently ; caress him, and do not
startle him. All chastisement or cruelty
confuses the animal and makes him wild,
They are good men who make good horses.
Manures. Dr. Voelcker says, in an
English journal, that if a farmer wishes to
lay out money to the greatest advantage
in the purchase of artificial manures, he
should discard the recommendations of
competing manufacturers;, he should en
deavor to procure at the cheapest rate
and in a separate form all the various fer
tilizing substances which are best adapted
to a particular crop on a given soil, and to
prepare himself, the several mixtures which
are sold under various names at a much
Higher price than that at which he can
make them. The Maine Farmer indor
sea the doctrine of this eminent authority
and expresses the opinion thaf the plan
proposed is a perfectly feasible one, and
that it might be adopted in this country
with satisfactory results. .
"Weeds in Walks. According to The
Canada Farmer, these may be destroyed
by applying a solution made of four
pounds of arsenic and eight pounds of
soda boiled in 12 gallons of water. To
every gallon of this mixture three gallons
of cold water should be added, and the
liquid carefully sprinkled over the walks
while it is yet warm. It is desirable to
do this in fine weather and when the
walks are. dry, " iso that the weeds and
weed-seeds may have a full benefit of the
application Care must be taken not to
let any of the liquid fall on the leaves or
reach the roots of any plant it is not
desired to kill, in 24 hours after the
poison is put on the walks every weed is
killed ; and if it be thoroughly done, the
walks will be clean through the season.
When to cut Grain. Coleman's Rural
World calls attention to experiments
which have been instituted from time to
time to determine at what period grain
should be harvested to secure the great
est advantages.- The unanimous opinion
appears to be, that if grain is cut soon
after the straw has turned yellow below
the head, while the lower part of the
stem is still green and the seed yet re
mains in a soft and doughy state, the
grain will weigh more to the bushel and
yield a greater amount from a given
space of ground ; that more and better
flour is made from it ; and where the
straw is to be fed to stock, it is relished
better and is more nutritious than if the
grain was allowed to stand until it be
came fully ripe. Some very careful tests
of this character were made in Yorkshire,
England, by John Hannam, and he sums
up the loss by shelling and in the weight
and quality of the grain through letting
it stand until folly ripe-as equal to $6
per acre. ,
The SorxjNO System. In considera
tion of the fact that pastures have suf
fered in common with all crass lands.
while the stock of cattle cannot easily
be reduced on acceuht of the extremely
low prices, llie Massachusetts i? tough
man suggests that it is worth while for
the farmer to consider whether he had
not better adopt the system of partial
soiling, or; perhaps better of buying
extra feeding stuns m the shape of an
seed or cotton seed meal and feeding
reasonable quantity once or twice a day
throughout the summer. Many farmers
put their cowsn the barn nights, and it
is a very easy matter to ieea out say a
quart of oil meal morning and night.
The advantage of this would be to in
crease the quantity of milk and to carry
the stock along with less injury to the
pastures, the natural consequence of
over-stocking while the value of the ma
nure would be considerably greater.
Furthermore, the freer use of artificial
manures on pastures and the use of
feeding stuffs for stock while at grass
will rapidly improve the farm.
Canada Thistle Cube. A correspon
dent says : I see by a late discussion in
your club that you are still at war with
the Canada thistle. They never grow
down South, and having lived about 11
years in the land of strawberry short
cakes, I had forgot the miseries of bind
ing Canada thistles in thin shirt-sleeves.
But I once realized it up in Broome
County, and I had no difficulty in des
troying them in every case. I cut them
with a scythe about the- time they began
to blossom, and allowed none to go to
seed. This kills the crop ; but there is
a crop of young plants in the" ground for
next year's growth. Let these be mown
'the next year about blossoming time, and
before any seed are ripe enough to grow,
and '. as there were no seeds ripened on
the last year's crop, there are now no
plants in the ground to grow the next
year. Of course the crop ceases. "Unless
they have learned to be more ugly than
" they used to be, any patch can be des
troyed in two years. But care must be
taken that none goes to seed either year,
and as these roots only grow one year,
their entire destruction is certain. I
have . thus exterminated them on rich
bottom lands, and know whereof I speak.
Frightened from His Profession.
A young Kentucky physician who had
been regularly educated for his profes
sion, was called to the bedside of a pa
tient that he had been attending with
his best care for some time, but who had
obstinately grown worse and worse, un
til now bis end seemed very near.
" Dector," said the dying man, "lam
dying I am certain I am dying, and I
believe you have killed me. " 'The doctor
seemed to think very earnestly for a mo
ment or two, and then quite gravely and
seriously replied : " Yes, I see that you
are dying ; and, on reflection, I believe
that you are right I believe that I have
killed you ; but, I here take my oath
that, if God will forgive me for having
unintentionally murdered you, I will
never murder another I will never give
another dose of medicino professionally
as long as I live. " And he kept his oath ;
he at once quit medicine entirely ; turned
his attention to the study of law ; ob
tained license in due course, and, after a
few years' successful practice, became
one of the most eminent Circuit Judges
of that day in Kentucky now nearly
forty years ago.
American Feasting. When Mr. Gal
lot went through the United States with
M'amselle D'Jeck, the celebrated ele
phant, he one evening was warm in his
praise of the hospitalities and socialities
of the mother country ; amid other in
stances, he quoted one of the Rutland
punchbowls, which on the christening of
the young Marquis, was built so large
that a email boat actually set sailing up
on it in which a boy sat, who ladled out
the liquor". "I guess," said one of the
company, "I've seen a bowl that 'ud
beat that to eternal smash ; tor, at my
brother's christeng, the bowl was so
deep that when we young uns said it
warn't sweet enough, father sent a man

prove that he had 880,000 with him at
tho time of his death, and that he was
robbed of it.
The San Francisco Alta says that by
the closest estimate that can be made at
the present time, about one thousand
acres of cotton will be raised in Califor

England was alarmed a short time
since on account of a sensational report
which told of a steady and great decrease
in English herds. Enthusiastic people

An unknown man was crushed to death
between the bridge and the ferry boat
at the foot of grand street, Williams
burgh, New York. A Prayer Book was
found on him, in which was written,
" Jas. F. Pape; his own : Aug. 25, 1851,
9 Clinton street." He was apparently
about 60 years of age.
A severe storm, accompanied by
heavy thunder and remarkably vivid
lightning, was experienced in London
and various other portions of England.
A cotton mill at Bolton, near Manchester,
was struck by lightning, and some of
the operatives were stunned though none
were seriously injured. The "Lord
Nelson" tavern ot Dover was also struck
and, taken fire, was burned. Many of
the inmates were injured.
The Memory,
It was said of Thoreau, we believe.
that he could take up any given number
of lead-pencils without counting. A
celebrated trapper once assured U3 that
he could tell how many balls he had in
his bullet-pouch by placing his hand on
it ana without stopping to count them,
and added, " I can tell the number of
bullets instantly without counting, as
you pronounce a word without spelling
it. ooutney was accustomed to lane
in the substance of a book in turning
the leaves over continuously, glancing
down the pages. Houdan the magician
trained himself to quickness of percep
tion when a boy, by running past a
show-window at full speed, and then
trying to tell what was in it. We once
met a man on a canal-boat, who was
amusing himself by going from pas
senger to passenger, and telling almost
every one where he had seen them be
fore, on such a train, in such a hotel, in
in such a street, giving date and place
to people with whom he had never ex
changed a word. This training of the
faculties in particular directions is car
ried to a marvelous extreme by woods
men, trappers, and men who guess the
weights of animals. Perhaps the most
remarKable instances are the markers
who leap from log to log at the mouth
of a boom, standing on the floating log
and translating instantly an old mam
into a new one, remembering what eqi
valent to give for each of a hundred
marks, and chopping it upon the log in
the time that it floats its length. It is
said that Thoreau knew the relative
order of the flowering of all the plants
m the Concord woods, and knew the
note of every bird, and a thousand other
out-of-the-way things besides.
Physiological Action op Quinine.
The physiological action of quinine has
lately been the subject of detailed experi
ment by J5inz, who found it to have ex'
traordmary power in arresting the pro
cess oi fermentation ana putrefaction,
ana to be a powerful poison for low or
ganisms, or, in other words, for all mov
ing bodies consisting of protoplasms,
It appears to kill fungi and bacteria.
which accompany fermentation and
putrefaction, and puts a stop to these
processes. It arrests the motion of the
white blood corpuscles, and thus pre
vents them from making their exit from
the blooa-vessels. It, therefore, dimin
isnes or arrests tne iormation of pus in
inflammation, pus consisting in great
measures of an accumulation of white
corpuscles which have issued from the
vessels. It also destroys the power of
certain suostances to produce ozone.
The red blood corpuscles have this
power, and, by depriving them of it,
quinine, when present in the blood,
must diminish the change of tissue in
the body, and thereby lessen the pro-
duction of heat. It is also found that
quinine lessens oxidation m the blood
other substances, such as snake poison
increasing it. vvnen putria nuids are
injected into the circulation of an animal,
its temperature rises ; out if these are
previously mixed with quinine, this rise
is arrested, or very much diminished,
According to Ziuntz, the use of quinine
has a marked influence upon the excre
tion of urea, the amount diminishing
very greatly.
A gentleman in Massachusetts, being
threatened with a contagious disease, said
to his little son, who, in an affectionate
mood, wished to embrace him, "You
mush't hug me ; you'll catch the scarlet
fever." Willie, standing back, looked
in amazement, upon his papa (who, by
the way, is a pattern of propriety), and
qmckly asked, "Wbyt papa, who did
you hug ?"

Swiss Lakes Geneva Washerwomen
at Work, etc., eto. , , ;
At noon, we took the train for Lausanne,
where we arrived about 1.30 p. m. Hav
ing to wait till 4 o'clock for the train to
Chillon, we went to the Hotel Gibbon,
where we had lunch. Looking out of the
windows, . we could see the garden" n
which Gibbon, the historian, wrote the
concluding portion of his great work over
eighty years ago.
The day was hot, the streets filled with
a lime-like dust, and -not being able to
find a carriage, had to walk up the steep
hill to the principal portion of the town
We visited the Cathedral, which is a gothre
edifice of simple and massive construction,
and had a fine view of Lake Leman and
the vicinity from the tower. We wan
dered around the place untill the train
started, and at 5.30 p. m., were at the
depot at Veytaux, Chillon. . ti
We sent our trunks up to the Hotel des
Alps, and walked down the track to the
Castle of Chillon, which was about an
eighth of a mile distant. Crossing the
bridge leading from the main land to the
Castle, we were met by a guide,, who
took us through the different portions of
it. Few objects in Switzerland are more
familiar, and I might also say, hackneyed,
than this same Castle; so often has it
been described by the poet, painted by
the artist, and written about by every
traveler who lias been within its walls,
The Castle itself, is not a striking object;
it is neither massive, nor very picturesque,
and the beauty of the site is greatly di
minished by the railway which runs close
to it. But the sad story of Bonnivard,
the prisoner of Chillon, and the innumer
able poetical associations which cluster
around its antique walls, will make it
always an object, of deep and perpetual
interest. The interior of the Castle is
well worth a visit. There is quite a gar
rison attached to it, and when we went in
. the courtyard, we found one of the drill
sergeants putting a company of raw re
cruits, through the " goofe step." Over
the principal entrance are the following;
words inscribed by the Bernese in 1643 :
" Gott der Herr segne den Ein und Ans
gang. (May uoa wess all who come in
and go ont). We were shown a number
of dungeons cut out of the solid rock, in
which the early reformers and subse
quently prisoners of state were confined :
across one of the vaults, we noticed a
beam blackened by age, on which, the
guide said, the coEdemned prisoners were
formerly hung. In the dungeons are eight
pillars, one of which is half built into Jthe
wall ; to tlese pillars the prisoners were
chained, and on the rocky pavement, the
steps of Bonnivard and other illustrious
prisoners have left their footprints.
Among the thousands or names inscribed
on the pillars, we saw those of Byron and
Dumas. A short distance from the Castle
is the Isle ue Paix, a small spot on which
three trees no w flourish. Bonnivard speaks
ot it as follows : - ? j
" And then there was a little isle,
Which iu my very face did smile ;
The only one in view."
We then returned to the hotel, where
we passe A the evening viewing the lake
and the exquisite sun set, than which
nothing could be more beautiful. The
sky was covered with a rosy light, which
gave to the summit of the mountains
most lovely appearance, which was re
fleeted in the calm mirror like surface of
the lake, which lay at our feet. I should
think one of the most agreeable ways of
spending a summer delightfully, would be
to put up at one of the first-class hotels
you find on Lake Leman, and from there
make excursions to different parts of
Switzerland.
During the summer, the Swiss hotels
are always crowded, and the stream of
travel often becomes a torrent ; hence the
necessity of telegraphing for rooms. The
tourists are of all degrees and languages,
but the English and Americans seem to
be the majority after the natives them
selves ; my own countrymen, I am happy
to say, being generally popular, on ac
count of the liberality of their opinions,
their lavish expenditures, and the courtesy
of their manners. Large as is the travel
on the Continent, and superior as are the
accomodations, nothing is more apparent
than that the people do not enjoy the
same advantages in their intercourse with
each other, as they do in the United States.
The wealthy classes alone, constitute the
Continental tourist, and you can quickly
notice the difference between a watering
place in Switzerland, and a watering place
in America. At the latter, all is good
humor, bustle, and an absence of caste ;
whereas at the former, all is cold, silent,
courtly and slow, each group or clique
keeping to itself ; and even Americans
may live in the same hotel for a month
without making an acquaintance. One
of the most noticeable things we have
seen, is the fine appearance and good ad
dress of the waiters at the hotels. They
are the smartest looking, and best dressed
men we meet, and are always very atten
tive, and usuaJly speak tw or three lan
guages. At 8.45 a. m. on the following day, we
left by steamboat for Geneva, stopping at
various owns and villages on the north
shore of the lake to land and take on pas
sengers. Lake Leman is the largest in Switzer
land, and in some respects, the most beau
tiful. Its beautiful blue color is only to
be compared with that of the Blue Grotto
in the Bay of Naples. It has for centuries
been a theme for writers in all countries.
Its connection with some of the greatest
names of modern times is universally
known. Voltaire and Goethe speak of it
with entuhsiasm; Eosseau makes it the
scene of his impassioned romance, the
Nouvelle Heloise ; the exquisite poems of
Byron, who dwelt for some time on its
shores, faintly described its varied beau
ties ; Alexander Dumas deems it worthy
of comparisonwith the Bay of Naples ;
indeed, the arts of the poet and the painter
have been exhausted to do justice to this
lovely expanse of water, which combines
the sunny softness of Lake Maggiore with
the imposing grandeur of the Lake of
Luzerne.
When we reached Morges, we had a
fine view of Mt. Blanc, and it was always
in sight till we reached Geneva. Here
our tour through Switzerland was at an
end. Two days passed quickly in the
society of friends, and viewing the city
and its surroundings. The city is mag
nificently situated at the southwest ex
tremity of the lake, and on both banks of
the Rhone which rushes through it, a
clear, but dark blue stream. -The houses
are nearly all six stories high", and. built of
a yellowish or cream colored stone, and
having in the centre a large courtyard,
which is usually occupied as a garden.
The streets are very clean, and we saw no
beggars, and but few police.
One thing struck us, while wandering
around the city, and that was the innumer
able shops for the sale of je.welry, watches
ana! fancy goods. The patterns and exe
cution of jewelry shown us were exquisite,
and at prices far below what we would
have to pay for the same goods in New
York. We also visited -several musical
box factories. Here you can buy music
boxes from $5 to $3,000. We saw chairs
stools, albums, work bfjxes, and even de
canters fitted up with musical boxes.
Though Geneva is the centre of an ad
mirable system ot railway communications
it is one of the few places in which the
diligence, which used to be seen lumber
ing over all the post roads of the Cooti
aeut, still lingers,
T!nilwnva Iidta Tint, vet nenetrftted to
jtChamouni ind other parts of Savoy, and
communications are yet kept up by this
strange looking vehicle of which it is
difficult to convey any idea to an Ameri
can reader. .The office of the diligence
was situated about two blocks from he
Hotel Metropole, where we were staying,
and we had a chance of seeing those
vehicles every . morning, taking in their
compliment xf tourists for . the trips to
Chamounix and Mt. Blanc. Imagine the
coupe of a railway carriage, and old fash
ioned carriage and a Broadway omnibus,
all joined together, with a doctor's gig,
the driver's seat, removed from the back
to the front, placed upon the top ; and
that will give you a faint idea of what a
Swiss diligence resembles.' a The horses,
the harness,. and the driver baffle descrip
tion. Lexicon "co.uld not do them justice.
Geneva is the Capital of the smallest can
ton of the confederation. Voltaire, when
residing h'ereused to- ridicule its diminu
tive size by "saying, " When I snaKe my
wig, I powder the whole canton."
In walking on the Pont des liergues,
one of the bridges which crosses the Rhone,
we noticed on both sides of the river, long
wooden sheds, from which projected a
large number of washboards, each- one
being presided over by a stout bwiss wo
man, who pounds her customer's clothing
with a huge wooden mallet, and keeps up
an animated conversation with her neigh
bor at the same time. It may be- a yery
effective 'way of re moving the dirt, but I
thought it rather rough on the clothes.
It was a singular sight to see nearly fifty
of these washwomen all talking and ham-'
mering together, and every time they
wished tc he more emphatic or convincing
in their argument, they would bring down
the mallet with a force that would make
the old shed rattle. While contemplating
the labors of these water nymphs, from
my stand point as a married man, and
" Knowing h6w it was myself," when
putting ort- clean linen: to discover the
absence of a button, 1 could not hut think
what an immense amount of trouble and
vexation they were weekly inflicting on
the married men and women of Geneva,
by their reckless use of the mallet, when
they are knocking the dirt out, and the
buttons" off of all the clothes entrusted to
their scare. I left this scene of mangled
shirt bosoms, feeling happy in the con
sciousness that Geneva was not my abid
ing place. Ihe H-x-Ciueen Isabella of Spain,
was stopping at the Metropole, and occu
pied one wing of it with her suite. I met
her in .the corridor on her way to her
Carriage." She is a stout, coarse looking
person, and had very little of that divinity
that doth hedge a King or a Queen, about
her. It she had on a calico dress, and
stood guard over an apple stand, she would
really have not looked out of place.

' T i Tales if Toads. C
ijreo. jyi. mead states kis experience
with toads in the Ohio Farmer. Unless
their sky i broken they are perfectly
harmless. They will eat any bug but
the potato bug. In Pittsfield, Mass.,
had an uncle, one of the finest gardeners
in the town, and "he, to the no little
amusement of friends, used to pick up
those venomous toads m his hands,
whenever , he could find nice fat ones,
carry them home and put them in hi3
gardeni to- catch the ; bugs and worms.
He said to me one day: "They will
beconMfluitfl tame if you pet them a
little, -wi jnought that a little singular,
but ooacluded,toJ, try it. When I went
home I found one in the shed close to
the kitchen and commenced. .At first I
caught a bug or fly and stood as far off
as I could -and dropped it down in front
of my pet. I did not have long to wait,
for the bug had hardly dropped before
it disappeared . Each day I went to see
and feed him, and went up closer, until
he got se tame that he would at any
time tane a Dug or ny out of my fingers.
i then began to handle him, and if
chanced to move him from his nice lit
tle corner he .would go back there and
seem to wait 'for me to come and see
hiin. " s. - - . .
Dr'Han-is said twenty years ago that
he supposed the odor of the squash bug
(corcus Tri8tis) would protect it from
the toad : and. test the matter he of
fered one tea grave-looking Buf o under
a cabbagey He seized it eagerly,' but
spit it out instantly, reared up on his
hind legs and put his front feet on the
top of his head for i an instant, as if in
pain, '-.and jihen" disappeared across the
garden in a" series of the greatest leaps
a toad ever made. Perhaps the bug bit
the biter. -,JNot satisfied . with this, Dr
H. hunted up another toad, which lived
under the-" piazza, and always sunned
himself in one place in the grass, and
offered him a squash bug, which he took
and swallowed,, winking m a very satisfi
ed manner. Twenty other fine bugs.fol
lowed the first, in a few moments, with
no difficulty or hesitation in the taking
or the swallowing, though from the wrig
gling and contortions it appeared their
corners did not set well within. The
stock of bugs being then exhausted a

end of a straw, it would coil around it,
and then when shaken before him he
would . seize and swallow it, at first
eugerly, but with diminished zest as the
number increased, until it became neces
sary, to.rub the worm against his lips for
some time before he could decide about
it. He. would then take it and sit with

A man in Boston returning to con

always expected,
Sharks.
In every geological epoch in mundane
history, this ferocious fish nppeirs to
have existed. Although the bones are
soft and cartilaginous, the teeth are
almost indestructible. Some of the fossil
specimens, nearly a pound in weight,
found at Gay head in Massachusetts, and
in the marl pits of New Jersey, besides'
hundreds of other places on all the con
tinents, prove their wide distribution at
the earliest geological periods and their
importance in the limitation of aquatio
races. Modern sharks appear to fall far
short of the gigantic proportions of their
antediluvian ancestors. If the fossil
teeth of museums bear a definite relation
to other parts of the body to which they
belonged, as they now do in the living
representatives of different species, some
old world sharks must have been full one
hundred feet long. With jaws thickly
studded with cutting instruments it was
mere sport for them to cut ichthyosaurus
into inch pieces, and they had jaws from
three to . six feet in length, terrible
enough to graplo " with the marine anaks
then rovng through disturbed waters in
quest of prey. So necessary are sharks
in the economy of nature, they still in
habit every zone. Solitary and alone
they range from pole to pole, sanguinary
bandits of the element in whioh they
fearlessly swim, slaughtering and devour
ing every creature they can master.
They seize with equal avidity putrescent
garbage and-swallow, a fetid carcase with
a gusto. Their function is recognized
by naturalists in their proclivities and
characteristic acts. They prevent the too
rapid increase or multiplication of other
aquatio beings. To that end their diges
tion is rapid, the solvent properties
of fluid secreted in their stomach are re
sistless, and consequently, being always
hungry, they are perpetually slaying and
eating. Dreaded as they are by man,
if they were suddenly annihilated, melan
choly consequences would ensue, they
might peril all life in sea and on shore.
Races now kept down would increase to
the danger of each other. Their decay
ing bodies would poison the waters of
the clobe. Putrescent.exhalations would
taint the atmosphere of the whole world.
Sharks, therefore, are necessary in the
economy of organized life, since its per
petuity essentially depends on vital air.
They are constantly on duty as universal
marine scavengers, holding tne Daiance
of power between life and death. It is
the province of science ta study losses
that are permanent in nature. No one
of them is more firmlv established or
better understood than this viz., eat or
be eaten !
What a Woman Pulled out op a
VALISE. Funny things sometimes occur
in the rooms of a photographer, as well
as serious ones, and perhaps one of the
most seno-comio incidents that ever took
place in a picture gallery, was that which
happened in the parlor of a prominent
photographer in Cleveland, O., a few
days since. A lady, evidently from the
country, breathing hard, as if from se
vere exercise and carrying a large-sized
carpet sack of the old fashioned kind,
entered the artist's rooms as suddenly as
if propelled from behind, and carelessly
throwing her carpet-covered valise into
one corner, began to inspect the differ
ent specimens of pictures in the show
cases and upon the walls. After half an
hour spent in this manner, she approach
ed one of the attaches of the shop and
asked to see the different styles of chil
dren's pictures. These she closely ex
amined and finally selected a certain pic
ture of an infant, and inquired of the
artist what he charged for taking a pict
ure like that. ; The price was named,
and she remarked that it was satisfac
tory, and said she would have one taken
ike that. "Where's the child? asked
the photographer. "Here it is," replied
the woman, and stepping ever to the
corner of the room where she had thrown
her carpet-bag upon entering, she pick
ed up the latter, opened its mouth, and
from its cavernous depths brought up an
infant that had been dead for twenty
four hours at least. The lok of curi
osity upon the artisu's face gave place to
one of horror, but his customer was
in dead earnest, and nothing remained
for him but to perform his work, after
which the woman stowed away the de
ceased babe in her valise and departed.
Protection fob Emigp-ants. At the
last meeting of the Commissioners of
Emnrration. held m .New lork city, a
correspondence between Mr. Casserly,
Superintendent of the board, and the
Consul General of the German Empire,
Dr. Rosing, relative to the adoption by
the German Government of measures for
the protection of German emigrants in
the selling or exchanging of their money
before embarkation and during the voy
age. was laid before the Board. Mr.
Casserly calls the attention of the Consul
to the frauds practiced on emigrants
when exchanging gold and silver coin
for U. S. currency and the purchasing of
drafts on persons doing business in New
York City and elsewhere m the united
States previous to embarkation at Bre-
mem and Hamburg, and other ports;
and he states that the commissioners are
satisfied that the loss to each emigrant
averages from five to ten per cent., in
addition to which he is subject to fraud
bv counterfeit or worthless paper. Mr.
Casserl v asks that those intending to emi
grate be warned against exchanging
their money before arrival here, and that
such legislation may bo adopted as will
insure them the receipt of the full mar
ket value of their money when exchanged
in Germany or on Gorman vessels com
ing to this port. Dr. Hosing replies
that the evil referred to has been fully
recognized by him, bub he does not see
how it can be remedied by legislation
without interfering with the freedom of
commerce! but promises do all in his
Dower to bring the matter before his
Government, and recommending perti
nent action. ' ".'
A HoBitlBiiB Cbimb. Considerable
excitement wai .'"occasioned in Henry
street, Brooklyn, N. Y., by the screams
of a young lady, upon the stoop of the
dwelling, j with her hiMKis ana nice
covered With blood. Several persons
immediately; ran to her " assistance and
carried her back into the house, and
during the excitement lier fnlher slipped
out and started up the street with a long
bloody case-knife in his hand. It ap
pears that a young physician named
John W. Swectzer,- who has just gradu
ated at the Long Island College Hospital
and who boards at the above locatiuii
has been for some time past paying attcn
tions to Miss Elizabeth Tomuson, a
voung. ladv eighteen vears of use, who
also resides at No. 577 Homy 'treo.t.
William. J. Tomilson, her father, forbade
her receiving the attentions of the young
doctor, . , one persisted in ana aomg so
he, therefore, became greatly exaspcr
ated. - ."Last night he went into the base
ment, sbarrpened up a case-knife, walked
up to the reception-room, where she was
performing on the piano, and without a
word of Warning, made an assault on her
with tho knife. He stabbed her upon
the head, over the loft eye, on tho cheek,
and in warding off the blows, her arms
were badly cut Some of the wounds are
considered of a dangerous character.
Tomilson was chased for several blocks
and finally arrested and locked up in the
Third Precinct station-house to answer.
Our future is always before us. The
past is fixed. No tears can wash away its
facts. Let ui waste no vain regrets upon
it; but from the wisdom its uiistakesuid
sins have bequeathed us, start afresh on
the race. 1 hough yesterday we were
weak, selfish, indolent, let us to-day at
thiB moment begin to be strong, brave,
hopeful, justT considerate, generous, ten
der, trnthlu1, pure, patient and forgiving,
"Now" is a glorious word. "Hence

Open Window at Night. ,
Very much has been written on this
subject, and written unwisely; the facts
are that whosoever sleeps uncomfortably
cool will get sick. To hoist a window
sky-high when the mercury is at zero is
an absurdity.
Ihe colder a sleeping apartment is. the
more unhealthy does it become, because
cold condenses the carbonic acid formed
by the breathing of "the sleeper. It set
tles near the floor and is rebreathed,
and if in a very condensed form, he will
die before the morning. Hence we must
be governed by circumstances. The
hrst thing is, yon must be comfortably
warm during sleep otherwise you are
not refreshed, and inflamation of the
lungs may be engendered, and life de
stroyed within a few days.
An open door and an open fire-place
are sufficient for ordinary purposes in
very cold weather, when outer win
dows are opened, it is well to have them
down at the top two or three inches, and
up at the bottom the same space.
In miasmatic localities and these are
along water-courses, beside millponds,
marshes, bayous, river bottoms, flat
lands, and the like it is most important,
irom the hrst of August until several
severe frosts have been noticed, to sleep
with all external doors and windows
closed, because the cool air of sunset
causes the condensation of poisonous
emanations which were caused by the
heat of the noonday sun to rise far
above the earth; this condensation makes
the air "heavy" at sundown, made heavy
by the greater solidification of the em
anations by cold; and resting on the sur
face of the earth in their more concen
trated malignant form, they are breathed
into the lungs and swallowed into the
stomach, corrupting and poisoning the
blood with great rapidity.
xsy daylight, these condensations- are
made so compact by the protracted cool
ness of the night, that they are too near
the surface of the earth to be breathed
into the system; but -as the sun begins
to ascend, these heavy condensations,
miasms begin to rise again to the height
of several feet above the ground and are
freely taken into the system by every
breath and swallow; hence the hours of
sunrise and sunset are the most unhealth
ful of all the hours of the twenty-four ia
the localities named; and noontide, when
the sun is hottest, is the most healthful
portion of the day, because the miasm
is so much more rarefied that it ascends
rapidly to the upper regions.: , V? , r
Ihe general lessons are: Avoid expos
ure to the out-door air in miasmatic lo
calities for the hours including sunrise
and sunset. 2d. Have a blazing fire on
the hearth of the family room at those
hours, to rarefy and send the miasm up
wards. 3d. Take breakfast before going
out of doors in the morning, and take
tea before sundown; then being out af
ter night is not injurious. HalVs Jour

A Teemagant. It is but a few weeks
since A. M. Holbrook, one of the editors
of the New Orleans Picayune, was
married to " Pearl Rivers." The other
day, as Mrst Holbrook was at her toilette,
she turned round and was confronted by
a well-dressed woman, who immediately
fired upon her with a pistol. After a
second shot Mrs. Holbrook seized the
weapon, and the two women struggled
for some seconds upon the floor, when
the assailant picked up a bottle of bav
rum and shattered it into a hundred frag
ments over the head of her victim. Then
she continued the attack with a cblna
vase, and the servants having all depart
ed, the infuriated female had the house
all to herself, which she soon made the
scene of confusion and ruin by smashing
the elegant crockery and all the finest
furniture. Some time afterwards a po
liceman arrived and effected a stay of
proceedings, takijpr her to the station
house, where Mr? Jlolbrook soon came
and entered a complaint again t her of
assault with intent to kill. She proved
to be his divorc.edvpe, Jennie Bronson,
one f the facij&fang, tigerish style of
women of tueau Fair stamp, who,
by representing '-herfelf a prominent at
torney's daughter,' had married Mr. Hol
brook when he really supposed she was
in a dying condition. She got well,
however, and has lived to make him a
good deal of trouble.

Editorial Opinions. An advertise
ment is, as a general rule, an elaborate
culogium on the merits of something
which the advertiser desires to sell. The
editors and publishers of the paper in
which it appears are not responsible
for its statements : Sometimes, however,
highly important discoveries or inven
tions, announced to the World through the
business departments of the press, seem
to demand a few words of editorial com
mendation. We have no hesitation n
saying that the excellent medicine intro
duced by Dr. Joseph Walker, of Califor
nia: under the name of Vinegar Bitters,
belongs to this category, and has a just
claim to a favorable notice. I here can
be no doubt as to its utility as a tonic,
stomachic and alterative. We are cog
nizant of many instances in which it has
cured cases of chronic dyspepsia, supposed
to be incurable, and know that the esti
mation in which it is held as a remedy
for bilious and nervous disorders, inter
mittent and remittent fevers, rheumatism
and general debility, is founded on experi
ence and well deserved, ihe testimony
of " a oloud of witnesses " goes to show
that it is eminently useful ia a large ma
jority of the disorders to which the human
family are subiect. The tact that it con
tains no alcohol commends it to the conti
dence of that large and increasing class of
