The Children in the Wood. by mk. I.. I.. iioonwi.v. ' y iVy'-T wan three miles to uvUool, ratb JsJL er a long tiiuuc for two cliit " 14 dreii of seven and nine vrarii, like Pet-sr and Mercy Lane. Being through tlie I'oreit, tall, dense, monarrhial, scan encroached on by the new settlement, the way wa a lone as long. But the girl and hoy bad stl dom travelled it afoot, never without a companion. Their father owned a ver itable . pioneer team ; a horse fearlej. fleet and strong; a sleigh that ponied to enjoy rough linage and could triumph over all oroinary-necidMJta; besides a plentiful supply of wolf-skin robes, which Mr. Lnuvi hud firat seen with hungry, nowliug bodies inside them. With these agreeable facilities, Peter and Mercy were every morning con veyed to the little log school-house, and every evening back to the bright heartb- toue and warm, eneery Htaiies 01 notne. i One day the father ahd mother went to town, as it was called; the town con- ! gistiug of a log tavern and store, and surrounding this nucleus of civilization, half a score or ho of dwellings, not widely distinguished by their architec ture from a beaver village. On this oiasiou of the parents going to town, Peter and Mercy were taken along to school and there sat down with the in junction it was a sad pity they did not better heed namely, to get dismissed in good time and go home and stay with Hugb, th hired man ; because, as their father distinctly told them, it was not certain that he and their mother would return until quite into the evening. Notwithstanding, early in the after noon, with their eyes on their books but their thoughts out of doors, tins children of 31r. Lane began to listen and every now and then to fancy they could hear the creaking of sleigh run ners on the snow ; when they would in stinctively glance up at the pegs from which hang their cloaks and comforters, in the momentary anticipation of hur rying the garments on and beginning the ride home, snuggled at their parent's knees. ... And: though so often mistaken, they continued to expect the welcome sound of "whoa. Bill." at the schoolhonse door, and to encourage each other's hopes, by exchanging the least bits of smiles across tne nine room. ' It was not that they would mind walk liisr for once, and fear of danger by day light there was none; but, the thought of their mother's company, so mucn enjoyed bv them in the morning, gave unusual zest to the prospect of riding; besides, their dear mother would be wfln to buv something in town espec ially for them, which to were eager to obtain possession of : at the earliest moment. Ho the children lingered and longed until at length the school was dismissed. From four o'clock until dark is not lone in winter. The first half the dis tance Mercv and Peter traversed quick ly, on the : horse-sled of a neighbor, who had come to take home nis own children and the schoolmistress; at the turn of the road they were lelt to pro ceed by themselves on loot.. Then, late as it was, they began to loi ter, walkinar backward or looking expect- uiiriv over their shoulders, and saying the. while that their father and mother could not be far behind. It was about the beginningof March The weather had been mild and pleas ant for man v da vs; the deep snow had xettled away from the trunks of the trees and become brittle . and porous. The road was- smoothly trodden, as it had been all winter. Coming before long to a hut used by wood-cutters earlier in the season, the children- halted under the low eaves fringed with icicles, though some had fallen and nierced the snow, or nasnea themselves in pieces on the strip of black and frozen soil where the children's feet were Dlaced. They agreed that this was a most comfortable position in which to wait the sueedv arrival of their parents But their parents came not; and the first thins that Mercv and Peter knew the sun had dropped 'behind the hill and disappeared, leaving only a gray and deepening twilight with the distant sky above, wnere me nrsi star vi eveuiug was trying to light its little beacon, aud below and far around, the evenly-spread snow and naked forest trees. The children turned toward each other, the sister's blue eyes and the brother's; black ones meeting in a star tled gaze. They all at oncce felt the lonely situation and wondered what they were to do. Little Peter straightened himself bravely, proposing to start for home and hurry -as fast as they could; and lie strode- into the road, pulling up his red and white tippet about his ears. But Mercy, looking along the road and observing how quickly--it was lost In ..loom, felt -secretly' afraid and would much have preferred going in the direc tion from which their parents were to come. She kissed her brother's cheek which was cold almost as snow ; tears trembled on her eyelashes; she told him they could not go on, it was too late, and thev would not be Kept-waiting' long and so led him back to their standing- til ace outside the hut. Duskier - fell the curtain of night. Still, and strange, and awful appeared everything about them. Mercy was half in doubt where they were, dreamily ouestioninsr wit herself how it could have happened that she and her brother should be in the woods atone at mat time of the evening. And when her thoughts - came back to her like a flash and she -recollected just the : truth, the hour or two since scnooi was out seemeu a. whole long day. A sound in -the distance caught Peter1 ear. lie listened, then turning his eyes. saw that his sister was listening too. It was bv no- means tin sound for which thev had strained their hearing in vain Th hpftt; that Mercv honed and a eood hope indeed, only dispelled in a moment was that the hired man was coming to meet them, halloing to the forest echoes for company's sake. Theyjjhad heard the howling of wolves, though not man v times; the sounds, even when they were safe at home, had caused their hair to stand on end. The indescribable resonance now swelling on the air they knew to be nothing less. ' Need ' I say the children were terribly irigntenea r For a few minutes they clung fast to each other, doing . nothing but cry, Then like the pioneer children they wre. tnev toot courage, and very sen- si bl v set about trying ; to escape the dreadful fate which threatened. They went- into the hot, and could they have shut the door, might have been compar atively seeure. as there were no win dows: but the door having stood open was banked with - snow,- which bad thawed and irozeu at the base into layer of solid ice. The poor children tugged at it with all their little strength nnt the door was immovable. findings there was no safety within rhev next bethought them to get upon the roof; which,, by the aid of a pole they -found in the hut, was shortly et tected. The roof sloped all one way, toward the 'south, -and was not steep! they pushed off the end of the pole and cut down on their feet in the midst of the shallow, crunching snow. All was again silent, all save the fear ful howling, nowlieard more distinctly, in token that the wolf-pack was drawing nearer.--' Mercy and her brother spoke not a word, only crept, siiuutieriug, still closer to each other. The height that thev had been at such pains to gain appeared quite insufficient; they doubted whether the dreadful beasts would not make the leap at the first trial. L'nless their parents sliolild conic directly, there was little hopes for tnera. They had occupied their 'position not many mtuutes, wnen a plunging iresia in the Know drew their attention to the rear of the hut. A moment s stillness followed; Mercy nogan to think it might have been only a dead bough that had fallen to the ground. Presently, while their eyes were fixed I11 the new direction, out of the dark ness into the dusk,' came with slouching but stealthy gait, a creature resembling i hir are brown dog. The children-who hud never seen a living wolf, and could not see this plainly, hopod it was a dog. tiioutrii knowing ot none sucn anion their few neighbors. It approached snuffed at the pole which had served them in climbing, sn titled at their tracks an toe snow, settled on its haunches an raised a pair of gleaming red eyes to the -ittle boy and girl, off whom it could liave supped comfortably and quickly. vCOJICl-UPKD IN OCR NEXT,) AGRICTJXTUILaX. j There is no orii:tni-nl inil. or outside ! of our houses o cheap as plants or flow ! ers. Few paiir- to regard the archi- lecture of your rooms or your bou-;, but the beauty of flowering shrubs, or the living arabesoe of a thriftr creeper over j your door, are lessons of taste and beau- ly. Indeed, subuebaii residences are I sadly deficient without these simple, yet beautuul accessories, always within the reach of taste and refinement, no matter how empty the purse.

How to Start ax AqriBax. Oneot he most attractive of sitting-room or naments is an aquarium. They need not necessarily tie expensive, as common window glass set in a wooden frame will snfhec, though .one with an iron frame will be !etter. Of course it must be made water, tight. - When Hi in is done put in rain or river water probably any soft water will answer i then get a piece of rock large enough to come nearly to the top and. the more holes, aud cavities and projections it has the better it will suit the fish. Put this in the middle, and then cover the bottom with clean sand or gravel two inches deep or more. You arc ready then for aquatic plants, such as American Starwort, Mermaid-weed, alia, Eelgrass, etc. When these have been planted three or four days it will be ready for the fish. Minnows, water newts, perch, mussels, tadpoles, snails, and a few gold fish, are commonly used. Miails are said to keep Doth the water and the grass clean. Some other kinds will do equally well, but pike and trout are objectionable on account of a weakness for eating up the other member! of the family. Care must be used so as not to overstock the vessel, or all will die. With a proper proportion of plants aud fish the water will remain pure for a number of weeks. When it has stood for some time it can be improved by dip ping out, and pouring back from a little eiglit. xne nsn may ne ted Dread rumbs and minute bits of meat, but hat is not eaten by them must be re moved, or it will taint the water. Coun try Gentleman. Fctckitt axp Phosphorus. We will assure sensitive-minded people in speak- g of futurity aud phosphorus, we have no idea of suggesting a disquisition con cerning futurity and brimstone. Sul phur and phosphorus are very different n their nature and adaptation tnougn they are sometimes made to act as sub stitutes for each other; and the futurity of which we shall speak does not extend beyond earthlv limitations. Much has been said and written or late years concerning the exhaustion of the world's supply ot coal. Men nave al ready used up, practically, their fuel supply furnished : by nature above ground, but. as if forseeiug what fools men would make ot tnemseives in con suming their forests without providing tor new growths, nature quietly secre ted another source of supply under ground, and men call it coal. Tiiis source or supply it is impossible lor man to recreate. He has nevertheless mined it and burned it, and wasted it in smoke, by the tens of millions of tons, just as though those subterranean forests could never be exhausted, fccience comes along, and with an outcry of alarm an nounces that this thing must stop, or our posterity will have nothing left for fuel wherewith to Don tne tea-ketue. Xow, it so happens that while Science is a croaker and an alarmist, Philosophy a soother and a comforter, bo, at this outcry of alarm. Philosophy very con soiingiy assures us tnat tne supply win outlast our time, and thereby enable us to bear the burdens of posterity very cahnlv. Moreover, Philosophy coolly demands of Science that it is her busi ness to be looking about to provide a substitute for coal, as she has done for wood, m order to meet the demands of this new exigency. Philosophy some What superciliously says to science The coming generations must have heat; heat is merely a 'mode of motion ;' and it is your business to find out some new method of producing the requisite motion tor evolving the requisite heat. And there, as between the two, thesub- iect drops, and the question rests. uut, besides using up tne eartn's sup plies of fuel, men are with equal reck lessness using up the earth's supply of phosphorus. Like coal and wood, the quantity ot phosphorus allotted to this distinguished member of the solar sys tem is limited, uur planet lias received its full rations of both fuel and phospho rus, if men will persist in the wasteful use of those rations till thev are ex hausted, they can draw no more. The laws of Nature's commissariat allow of no commutation in that regard. Once exhausted, phosphorus, like coal, can not be recreated; nor can any other sud stance supply its place. Well, then, can't we do without it? Kot very well. We might dispense with lucifer matches, but how abont our bones? Ji very well grown man requires at least lour pounds ot pnospnates, merely to built up Ins bony frame-work and give him suitable solidity of spine to enable him to become even a politi cian. Without the phosphates, therefore we could have neither men nor animals above the grade of the cartilaginous. Moreover, the earth, if deprived of her favorite phosphates, refuses to yield plants, or the seed of plants, useful to man. It is from the phosphates thus deiived that : the bony structure of the whole animal creation is manufactured. Now, think of the millions of tons, by millions of millions multiplied, that have been drawn from the original : stock of the earth's phosphorous tor building up the animal universe, and then consider how many of those infinite millions of tons have been wasted and lost in the uses of men, and we can no longer won der at the waste places ot the Uid orld Then we will understand whv the vast regions of Asia Minor, once fruitful and populous, are now barren ; why portions of Sicily. Palestine, Arabia, and. the plains of Babylon, once so fertile, are become deserts. Those lands have been robbed of their precious phosphates ; their phosphorus is exhausted. Certainly, vast amounts ot the phos phorus thus taken has been returned through various media to the . earth whence it came, uut how infinite are the quantities we have deposited iu the grave. This may be called returning the phospbotes to the earth ; but not in any practical or beneficial sense. The bones, lying undisturbed, retain all the phosphates. It is only the organic mat ters that are decomposed in the grave the phosphates remain and are not redis tributed through the soil to become again elements of fertility. That dis tinguished chemist, Jjleoig, tells us that " the only loss ot elements we are un able to prevent, is of the phostatcs, is so tar as those, in accordance with the cus toms of modern nations, are deposited in the grave." It is not probable that men will aban don the custom: of deep-earth burial certainly not for the purpose of making mineral manure of the bones of their ancestors. Kor does anybody wish that they would, : But it is manifest ttiat the growing necessities of men will compel them to adopt some measure of rational economy in the use of sewerage; so that, instead of draining our lands of their precious- phosphates, and wasting them in our rivers and the sea, they may be returned to the soil to supply" the phos phorus lor coming generations through all the cycles of time. History assures us that races of men m their ruuu condition were ever stal wart and brave. As civilization came there also came luxury and effeminacy, x ue same races ceased to oe either stal wart or brave, feo the barbarian has ever prevailed over the refined and lux urious. But let us question Philosophy to know if History is correct iu her de- duetiou that refinement necessarily en feebles nieu. Was it not a diflcieue-y of phosphorus, rather than an excess of re finement, that caused the deterioration in manhood V Could the barbarian con qner because he was ignorant? No, but because they were strong, and they were strong because they were the sous of a sou not yet rooued ot its phosphates The gigantic Gaul made the civilized Komaii tremble; now the descendant of that gigantic Gaul boasts of being an aueragc giant ot only tour feet six! so every where, man's stature and strength uinuuisn as piiospuorus disappears. Un less we learn to preserve this our futur is dark and desperate. A judicious sys tem of agriculture must soon be de manded that will return to the soil the waste of cities, or our posterity will do- generate to a puny, rickety, brmeless PRACTICAL HINTS.

Boil two cow heels in one gallon of water, until the- bones come quite out. Take the juice of three lemons, strain them through a sieve into the jelly; add loaf sugar and cinnamon to your taste; boil them, together, then add three eggs. Let the jelly boil five times. After the jetly Is first boiled it must stand till cold,- and the fat then lie taken off. Mu$h Biscuit. Make about a quart of Indian meal mush, or stirabout; while hot, add a piece of butter' about the size of an esrg; thin it with milk, adding a little salt; then add some flour as will make itthe consistence of dough; kneed it well, set it to rise, and bake with a hot fire. The meal makes the bread light, and thus removes she objection t the nnhcaltbrulness ot hot bread. , Abernethn Biscuit.

By putting in plenty of spice and fruit raisius, currants, and citron this make a very nice . fruit cake, which will keep some time. To. Fry Fish.-Aftar it has been" cleansed, cut it into pieces of the proper size, and lay tttetn in a clout in order to dry them. Fry four or five slices of salt pork, or ir you have not this, lard or nice beef drippings will do; but pork is preferable. When th3 slices are fried brown, take them out, dip the pieces of fish in a plate of line Indian meal, and lay, them "into . a spider.. Yry them brown. When the fish is done, lay it with the pork into a hot dish. Pour a little water into the spider, boil it up. dredge in browned flour, and pour the whole over the nsn. To boil Corned Beef. Wash it thor oughly, and put into a pot that will hold plenty ot water. Ihe water should be hot; the same care is necessary in skim ming it as for fresh meat. - It is not too much to allow halt an hour tor every pound of meat after it has begun to boil. The' goodness of corned beef depends much on its being boiled gently and long. If it is to be eaten cold, lay it, wnen ooiiea, into a coarse earthen dish, or pan, and over it a piece of board the size of the meat. Upon this put a clean stone, or a couple of flat-irons, or some other heavy weight. : Salt meat is very much improved Dy being pressed. To Bleach Linseed Oil. Put iu a glass jar some bona fide new linseed oil (from the oil pressing works not the shoos) pressed from fine Eastern seed, iu the sunlight on the top of the house with a piece of sheet lead (scraped bright) in serted part in the oil and part in the at mosphere 01 the jar. Cover over with glass the mouthy so as to admit air and light freely to circulate, but not the rain to enter. In a few weeks the oil bleaches and to the lead between wind and water, a mass of mucus attaches itself, which is witncirawu py genuy .taking out the lead, rerscraping, and 'again inserting until the oil becomes of the lightest tint. Hot Pudding Sauce. To four larsre spoomms oi roiiea, ciean Drown sugar, put two of butter, and stir it together in an earthen dish until white; then put it into a sauce-pan with a teacup of hot water, and set it nnan the coals. ' Stir it steadily1 till it TmhIs, and then add a gpooutuil or two ot wtne; lemon jniee.or rose-water, ana let it Don uo acain Pour it into a sauce tureen, and - grate nutmeg over me top. xne advantage of stirring the butter and sugar; together before melting it, is, that it produces a thick white foam upon . the top. The reason for stirring it steadily while on the coals, is, that it would otherwise" be come oilv. - Peeling peacftes.-Somebody give.the following method for pealing peaches ani tomatoes; "io remove the skin from peaches. Every one knows there is a great loss ot pulp in pearing peacnes witn a kinte, to ohvlate which the following has been suggested for- treating them: Make lye as strong as possioie witu wooa asnes and soft water. . Fill a kettle with the lye, and when boiling rapidly drop in twelve or niteen peacnes, and take out immedi ately and immerse them in a pail of cold water, rake one m yonr hand and the rind will slip off entirely.' leavine a round, beautiful yellow ball; throw it immediately into another pall of water, aud so proceed until all are done. This process will not injure the flavor of the finest peach, and, once tried, the old- fashioned way of peeling with a knife win not oe agai-i adopted. , it the lye is not strong enough, put into the kcttltt two dippers full of clean wood ashes. This is a good way of ridding small on ions ot their jackets preparatory to pick ling them ; also for peeling tomatoes." Jiecaratiee Painting on Tin. Tinfoil is spread out upon a smooth surface, such as glass, the latter having been first moistoued to aid the laying out of the foil and to maintain it in its position. The painting is then executed upon it in oil. This painting on tin, when dried ana varmsned, can be rolled up like or dinary paper hangings, from, which it essentially differs U PAseasing all the variety Of tone and coloring that oil panning auiuits oi. xne tin ground work constitutes a water-proof protec tion, and, 011 account of its irreat flexi bility, will follow the various moldings, and contours of the object to be orna mented. To the lattor should be ap plied a hydrolago mixture, when it will be ready for the decorator. This meth od can replace ordinary gilding, as the "gold can be applied iu the workshop and the tin gilt fixed afterwards. Tho ad vantage of gilt tin over gliding on other metals is that it is inimical tooxidation; whereas it is known that gilding upon other metals, and notably upon zinc, deteriorates rapidly.
