The following thrilling account of an engagement between a hot constrictor and a crocodile in lavn, ia given by an eye witness: It was one morning that I stood betide a sin ill lake, fed by one of the rill from the mountains. The waters were clear as crys tal, and everything could be teen to the very bottom. Stretrinjr its limbs close over this pond, was a rrigantic teak tree, and in ita thick, shining evergreen leaves, lay a huge boa, in an easy coil, taking its morning nap. Above him was a powerful ape of the ba boon species, a leering race of acamps, al ways bent on mischief. Now the ape, from hia position, taw a crocodile in the water, rising to the top, ex actly beneath the coil of the serpent. Quick hs thoug-lit he jumped plump upon the snake, which fell with a splash into the jaws of the crocodile. The ape aaved him self by clinging to a limb of the tree, but a battle royal immediately commenced in the water. The serpent grasped in the middle by the crocodile, made the water boil by his furious contortions. Winding his fold round the body of his antagonist, ho disabled his two hinder legs, and, by his contractions, the water was speedily tinged with the blood of both combutuntd, yet neither was disposed to yield. They rolled over and over, neither being able to obtain a decided ad vantage. All this time the cause of mischief was in a state of tlic highest ecstacy. He leaped up and down the branches of the tree, came several times close to the scene of the fight, shook the limbs of the tree, ut tered n yell, and frisked about. At the end often minutes a silence began to come over the scene. The folds of the serpent begun to be reluxed, arid though they were tremb ling along the buck, the head hung lifeless in the water. The crocodile also was still, and though only the spines of hit back were visible, it was evident that he, too, wus dead. The monkey now perched himself on the lower limbs of the tree, clo.e to the dead bodies, anil amused himself lor ten minutes in ma king all sorts of faces at them. This seem ed to be adding insult to injury. One of my companions was standing nt a short dis tance, und taking a stone from the edge of tho luke, hurled it ut tho ope. He was to tally unprepared, and as it struck him on the side nf the head, he was instantly tip ped over, and fell upon the crocodile. A few hounds, however, hrouglitj him ashore, und taking to the tree, he speedily disappeared among the thick branch-.. Cows. Cows differ more rin value for milking p'irposes than is generally supposed. Thousands fail to pay their way, and are a positive tax on their owners; while a first rate milker yields a large profit tin the food cohsEVmejk How to banish all indifferent & worthless kinift, and fill their pluces with superior aiiitunls, is a question for the in telligent growers of neat stock to consider. Deterioration is practised by a hundred farmers where improvement is duly studied by one. As a general thing, cws and their offspring must be better kept before any de cided change for the better is attainable. High quality in ancestral blood mails noth ing in the veins of a starved calf. Without goorl keeping the best breeds of stock are utterly worthless. Be Kind to the Stock. It is much less labor to take cure of animal:, that arc dOOlle and quiet, than those that aro uneasy and fructious. They will toon catch the spirit of your own temper. If your wortls and actions are kind and gentle, they will come to their places with confidence and allow you to handle them pretty much as you please.

White Beans. you have often requested your subscribers to communicate to the Parmer their experi ence in raising different kinds of crops. I have seen DO notice on the culture of the white beans, and us some lurmers urc turning their attention to this crop it may bo of ad vantage to sumo to know how I manugo. I prepare my ground by plowing and dragging smoothe; I mark it out in shallow furrows, about two and n half feet apart with a corn plow; I tbet! drop tho beans two or three inches apart in the furrow. I use a drug that is wide enough to cover two rows at a time. In this way, with two hands, I can plant, four acres n tlay. I find this a better way than to plant in hills. When the beuns are about three or four inches high, I go through them with tho cullivutor; weed and hoe them well. When uhout ten inches high 1 use the corn plow, turning the soil up Bgalutt tho vines to hold tin in up. This time 1 use no hoe. Ily this process, and with u iprlnkling of platter when I hoe (he m, I raise from twenty to twenty-five bushels per acre. The past season I hud four acres from which I measured up ninety-one bushels. When I gather mid thrash them I stive the vines to feed cuttle. I have kept seven bend this winter, und have fed them but little else. They are ull in good order. (inusser farmer.

The Engineer! and Contractor! on the Marietta 6t Cincinnati road are preparing to push the work with vigor hitherto unexam pled in the history of Western Railroads. Capt. Kennedy, the Chief Engineer ol the Company, Capt. Arms, President Engineer of the division west from Marietta to the Vinton Co. Coal Sfrnes, and the contractors on that division, Messrs. French, Podge & Co., arrived here on Tuesday, and will immediately put a 8trong force upon the line west from this place. The work has commenced nt the rock cut where the road leaves the Ohio river two miles west of Harmar, and the contractors ndvertise for one thousand more latiorers now, ond an additional two thousand in the spring. They design to put a force at work on the tunnel near Esq. Bridges', in Warren to-day. They already have u large force at work nt Pilcher'a, in Athens County, and intend to commence work at every point westward where there are deep cuts, heavy fills, or tunnels, this winter, and early in the spring will put as heavy a force as can be worked to advantage on the whole line. East ward from Marietta, as our readers are aware, a line has been surveyed ulong the river to Wheeling; and one or two other lines have been run from herfi to Newport, to day we understand that Capt. Kennedy and Mr. Ambrose 'Pierson (recently appointed Ret iilent Engineer of the eastern division of the road from Marietta to Wheeling ) com mence a reconnoisnnc.c of an interior line to Wheeling. It Ib believed thut u practicable line may be found which will be 13 to 15 miles shorter than that by the river. But the distanc jwill soon be known, for on Monday next Mr. J. L. Stone, first Assistant Engineer of the eastern division, commences running Marietta Intelligencer. The Itnil Rond Survey. Uy interior line, from Marietta to Wheeling, is now progressing its rapidly as possible, un der the direction of Mr. Ambroae Pierson, Resident Engineer of the eastern division of tho road. Mr. J. L.

GROWTH OF HABITS. a vizier Having oneuueu nis master, was compelled to perpetual captivity in a lofty tower. At night his wife came to weep be low his window. "Ceaeo your grief," said the aage; "go home for the present, und return hither when jtfu have procureugefjve black betle, togeth er with a little ghee, (orbnfi'alo's butter,) threo clews, one of tho finest silk, another of whip cord, and finally a stout coil of rope. When she again came to the foot of the tower, provided according to her husband's command, he directed her to touch the head of the insect with a little of the ghee, tie one end of the silken thread around him, und to place the insect on the wall of the tower. Seduced by the smell of the ghee, which he conceived to be above him, the beetle contin ued to usseiid till he reached the top; and thus put the vizer in possession of the roll of silk thread. He then drew up the pack thread by meuns of the silk, the small cords by means of the of the pack thread; and by means of the cords a stout rope, capable of Buetuining his own weight; and thus ho escaped from the tower.

Tribune exposes a scheme of the New York Custom House officers, past ami present, to lino their pockets with over half a million of plunder, and calls upon Con gress to stop the enormous leak in the Treas ury while yet there is time. The Tribune refers members to tho Treasury Department for official evidence, and says; About the time of Gen. Harrison's inaugura tion, or in the first months of the ensuing Whig Congress, an actor provision of law passed reducing und limiting the compensa tion of certain Revenue Officers holding what were called -lee' situations. Under this clause the Weighers und Measurers in our Custom Hotise, who hud previou received from ftf, 000 to $3,000 each per annum, were limited to $1,500 each, per annum; and rney have accordingly been paid m jirJh rate for the last ten or more yeart. tf It hat recently been suggested that thja pro vition of law can aomehow beaet9rTtle or circumvented, and a powerful lobby has un dertaken to procure auch action in the tever al Departmenti having cognisance of the quettion aa will enable the officers interested, including not merely Mr. Fillmore's, andGcn. Taylor's but even Mr. Polk's functionaries, to receive from theTreatury in enortnousad dition to their pay and perquiaitca, to the ex tent of tome $760,000 to $1,000,000. The lobby agentt engtged are to hive twenty-five per cent, for their powerful services, (but that won't help the Treaaury a red cent,) while the exfunctionariet will pocket the odd Half Million and over, and walk off chuckling. Education. Every boy should have hit head, hit hetrt t antl his hand educated. Let this truth never ll be forgotten. By the proper education of the ! head, he will be enabled to discern what ia t good from what it evil, what is right &. what i ia wrong. But by the proper education of the i heart, he will be taught to love what ia good, i wite end right, and hate What la foolish, evil i and wrong. And by proper education of the hand, he will be enabled to aupply his wanta, add to hit comfortt, 4i to attitt thote ureund him. The highest objects of an education are to reverence and obey God, and to love &. serve mankind. Every thing that helpt ut in at taining these objects is of great importance, & every thing that hinders these it compara tively worthless. When wisdom reigns in the head and love in the heart, the man is ever ready to do good; order & peace smile around ami sin Si sorrow are unknown Blackwood, j Mr. Editor: Willyou publish the follow- I ingstatement of thinga"never teen," but full well known to be true in thote diggins, and much oblige an old subscriber: I have never seen a zealous professed abo litioniat who wat not an intolerable bigot. Having such supreme regard for the slave, they have nothing but wormwood for all who differ with them in any degTee. I have never seen a free trader, who did not think that the Government should protect this particular intereet. I never seen a third party in politica which was not ready to sell out to the highest bid der. I have never seen a politician who was perpetually pleading conscience, who was not an impracticable dunce, or an arch intriguer. I have never Been one who condemned ex pediency in a II cases, that would not adopt any expedient to promote his own ends. I have never seen a public man who pro fessed great love for the people who would not betruy their interests when occasion should require. I have never seen a politician who left his own party for the sake of promotion, who waa not despised by all parties. I have never seen a man who labored to form a new party who did not expect to be placed at its head. I have never seen a democrat who was perpetually crying out arristocracy, who was not himself a perfect aristocrat in the circle in which he moved. I have never seen a clergyman who preach ed politics on the Sabbath, who promoted his own interest, the peace of the parish, or the success of the party he attempted to sustain. I will not say that these things never did occur; but I -,iust say that I have never seen them, and if they did happen along very often, I think I should have met with them now and then. Ml. Vernon True Whig. How to use a Coal Stove. The fire should not be permitted to dio out during the winter. By kt eping the fire up, on immensity of trouble is saved, and, paradoxical as it may seem, it is cheaper. The reason is this: The coal burnt out during the long winter nights, be cause the door of the stove is shut; jjhereas, if the door is left open, it will not bur out, Si will be perfectly alive in the morning, Less : coal is therefore consumed. There isjio dan Iger in leaving the door often, aa the draft isa ! alwaya strong enough to carry the sparks,up i the pipe or chimney. If any one sleeps in the r loin, the upper sash ol the window should be lowered two or three inches, even in the coldest weather, and more when it it milder. Having a comfortable fire in the room in cold weather, and yet enjoying fresh air by means of ventalat ion, is the very ideal of comfort Si the habit of early rising.

Chi cago Statesman. 0t7"A writer in Tht Springfield Republican, from the Worcester Insane Retreat, men tions the following: There is a small pond in the garden. Just opposite the pond, I saw n woman, humbly dressed, looking in the wuter. 'That poor woman,' said tho Doctor, 'has been here for sevcrul years. She assists in tho kitchen, and is perfectly harmless, al though incurable. She ia the wife of an in dustrious man, living in an adjoining town They had a family of three boys.lwoof which died suddenly, of the scarlet fever. Within a week of their burial, the mother proceed ed to u pond near by for some water. As she was dipping her pail, she saw something just beneuth the surface which attracted her attention, and, taking a wooden rake, she pulled il to the bunk; it proved to be the body of her remaining child. A walnut-shell, with a piece of paper stuck in the centre, was Boating upon the water, which, nodoubt, suiling from the reach of the child, cuused him to stretch for it, lose his balance, and be drowned. Before sunset she was mad raving mad and was brought here. It is her daily custom to watch that water for a few momenta, just at the hour she discovered the body of her child, and then to return quietly to her work. But if she waa not al lowed to do so, which, by wuy of experiment, has been tried, violent fits and convulsions would follow.' 'You suy she is incurable,' said I. Quite so, we think. Under superintend ance,' continued tho doctor, 'she ia quiet and useful here; but without it she would be even dangerous. While ho was speaking, the mother, whose bereavement of her children had driven her mad forever, turned upon her heel, and with her face turned to the curth, walked .-lowly toward the house. As she approached, the doctor called to her, and dropping a low courtesy, she stood looking at ut. I have seen faces whose melancholy ex pression might chill the blood like the keen east wind, and the power of sympathising with them be very limited. But, of all that I have seen, not any have approachod the one I now looked upon, in utter abaence ef all life's sunshine. Pale, ashy pale were her features; her lipa were hueless, and her eyes sunken; her lower jaw dropped almost upon her breatt, and looked like grief per sonified. 'Poor creature,' exclaimed thedoctor.'what wretchedness of mind is there depicted!' 'I never saw it equalled,' said I. 'No wonder,' replied ho. 'For five years 1 a smile haa not played upon her features, and, in my opinion, never will.' Anoi'T the Moor.

Thit desolation t unaccountable, unless we suppose that the inhabitanta licenaed grog-selling till the peo ple drank the rivers dry, and then themselvet kicked the bucket. Correspondence of Daily Pittsburgh Gazette WASHINGTON, DEC. 28. News from Concord—Sundries. The telegraph reports that the mitsion of Senator Hunter to Concord has already borne fruit. But the report that a Cabinet already has been formed, is evidently premature. I think care .vill be taken to have all Bect'ons of the country represented in the arrange ment abou to be made. Probably Dr. Gwinn as identified with the feelings and interests of the Pacific division, will be invited to take charge of one of the departments. His ex perience in naval affairs would fit him well for Secretary of the Navy. A. O. P. Nicholson, of Tennessee, who is named for the War De partment, is the old correapondent of General Cass on the Wilmot Proviso and kindred top ice. He has heretofore remained in a pro found obscurity, which haa perhaps precluded the development of talents onlyjust revealed. Mr. Dobbin, of N. C, who is spoken of for a place in the Cabinet under Mr. Hunter's programme, ia not much more advanced in the paths of fame. He has been in Congress, & more lately was the unsuccessful caucus demo cratic candidate for Senator in North Caroli na, but was defeated by the defection of a few of the brethren. The same reports assign ex-Senator Dickinson, of New York, to the Treasury Department. Well, there is much probability in that. I learn that the Free Soilers and Hunkers have united against Mtircy, who will consequently be immolated upon the alter of faction and jealousy. But what will be the lot and porthn of the Warwick of Cabinets himself! Will Mr, Hunter be Secretary of State, or will he be the colleague of the President, wielding the power of the Senate! That is the question. Douglass, Heuston, Lane, and all aspirants tc the Presidency, old or new, rather desire hi.r to take office. If he does not, they will make his place in the Senate, as the leader of the Administration forces, uncomfortable. I in cline to think that Hunter will become Sec retary of Stute. There was a bare quorum in either House to-day and but little was done or attempted The sitting in each hardly exceeded an houi and a half. In the Senate, Mr. Weller pre sented a well written memorial, from Mr Stanley, the distinguished painter of India, portraits and scenery, praying Congress tt purchase the fine collectien which he has beei exhibiting at the Smithsonian Institute for t year past. Mr. Cass gave the Administration anothei poke in the ribs in reference to its foreigr policy, by presenting a resolution, which wai adopted, calling for information whether the British have colonized, any partof Central A merica in contravention of the Clayton ant Bulwer treaty. Mr. Stanton, of Ohio, procured the adop.

Louis Napoleon's Inaugural. We intended to present the following in augural of the newly elected and proclaimet Emperor of the French iu our last, bu it was crowded out. Gertlemer, The new reign which yot I this day inaugurate has not its orgio, as tc many others which history records, in vio lence, conquest, or intrigue: it is, aa you have just declared, the legal result of the will ol an entire people, what it had founded in the midst of agitation. I am deeply grateful to the nation which three limes iu four years has supported me by ita suffrage, and which each tjne has augmented its majority in order to mcreaae iny'power. But the more thia power gains in extent and in vital force, the more need it haa of enlightened men like those whom I uddress, to guide me by their counsels, and to reduce my authority within just limits, if it shuuld ever transgress them. From this day I take with the crown tho name of Napoleon III, because the opinion of the people has already bestowed it on me in their acclamations, because the Senate has legally proposed it, and because the whole nation hat rttified it. Does this, however, signify that in taking this title I fall into the error imputed to the prince who, returning from exile, declared all that had been done in hit abaence null and void! So erroneoua a notion ia far from n,e. Not only do recogniae the governments which have preceded me but I inherit in some sort what they have accomplished of good and evil; tor successive Governments, notwithstanding their different orgin, are severally bound by the acts of their prede cessors. Rut the more I accept that which, for the last 50 years, history hands down to ut with inflexible authority, the less was it allowed me to pass over in silence the glorious reign af the chief of my family, and the titile, regular, although ephemeral, of hia ton, which the Chambers proclaimed with t'.e last outburst of conquered patriotiain. Thus, then, tho title of Napoleon III is lot one of those dynastic and obsolete pre :entiont which seem an insult alike to truth ind common tente; it it the homage paid toa OYtrMMBt which wat legitimate, and to which we are Indebted for the finest ptgea of our modern history. My reign doet not date from 1815, it datet from the very inttant that you have communicated to me the tuf fragrs of the nation. Receive, then, Maeeieura leat Deputes, my acknowledgement! for the dittinetion you have given to the manifestation of the national will, rendering it more apparent by your supervision, and more imposing by your declaration. I thank you, also, Mctsieurt le Senatura for having been the first to congratulate me as you were alto the firtt to express the national wish. . Atsitl me all of you, to establish in thia land, harratsed by to many revolution!, a stable Government, based on religion, justice probity, and the love of the humbler elasaet. And here receive the oath, that I will ute every exertion to aasure the prosperity of thia country; and that whilst maintaining peace, I will yield nothing which affects the honor and dignity of France.
