FARM, GARDEN' AND HOUSEHOLD.
Fitrni Note* nod Iliad. Horses that ore greedy caters, or swallow their grain whole, should have it bruised or ground. * Use sulphur freely in the stablea to keep off lice from the cattle; It is a dw graco to any farmer to allow his cuttlo to bo tormontod by such vermin, when they ore bo easily destroyed. Perhaps unleachod wood ashes furni*li the most valuable of the miuoral manure*. They aro worth nearly double as audi, pound for pound, as tho commercial fertilizers ordinarily sold. Boador, take care of your ashes. Rolling land after Hooding is almost invariably profitable, and oven necessary. If the grouud is a fctifT loam, and wet whon seeded, rolliug immediately may do much harm, especially if soon followed by dry woatlier. But the rolling in such cases should be deferred until the around has dried, when, if in tho least lumpy, the roller should bo used. If tho grouud ia dry at the timo of soeding tho roller should follow at once. Mulch trees soon after planting with straw, dead gross or litter of any kind, and thoy will bo moro likely to live through tho spring and eurly summer droughts whiou sometimes occur and prove fatal to unmulohed trees, especially j if planted in tenacious soils. A kind of influenzo has broken out among tho horses in many of the West ern towns, its first appearance in malig nant form being reported from Detroit, Mich., where a number of animals have fallen victims to nt. Tho malady pre vailing at present bears no relationship to the epizootic, although some of the earlier symptoms aro similar. Strong efforts are being made among farmers to encourage the crows as sonvengors rather than to destroy them. It ii claimed that they may bo mado use ful in destroying the potato bug. Hlwple Draprpila Henrdy. Dyspepsia arises from a groat variety of causos, and different portions are ro liovod by different remedies, aooordinp to the nature of tho disoase and oondi tion of the stomach. We know of a lady who has dorivod great lynoflt from drinking a tumbler of swoet milk?tho richer and fresher the better?whenever a burning sonsatiop is experienced in tho otomaqji,. An elderly gentleman of our acquaintance, who was afflicted for many veara with groat distrow after eating, has effected a cure by mixing a tablo spoonful of wheat bran in half a tumbler of water, and drinking it half an hour after each meal. It is neo?Msary to stir quickly and drink immediately, or the bran will adhere to the glass and become I nib try. Coffee and tobocooaro probably tho wowt i substance* .persons tronhjod with dyiqwpjila are in tho habit of using, and ahotild be avoided. Regular eating of nourishing plain food, and the uso of some simple remedies like tho above, mil effect, in most cases, quicker cures than medicine. MnUml 111 h i ?. Cod Livrii Oil.?A French physician reports as tho result of uoarly one hun dred observations, that it is in rickety pationts, as previously shown by various writers, that cod liver oil lias it most positive and curative action, but that it cures neither scrofula nor consumption; in these, as in all other diseases, in whicli it has been tried, the oil acting as a re storative and rooonstituont, is therefore useful in tho treatment of all such condi tions of thq system a* exhibit a general cachexia, without being oddrcssod to any particular malady. It seems also to l)o a fact, veriflod by numerous in stances, that tho incrcasa of weight al ways cease* in individuals attacked with consumption whenever, by tho use of cod liver oil, they liavo attained their normal weight. The oil should bo ad ministered with tho food, instead of in tho iutemls botweon meals. Smallpox in Rome. Dr. Toscaui has mado an oxooodingly interesting report of tho reoont endemics of smallpox In tho Italiau capital, by which it appears that within the space of ono hundred and thirty months 8,140 persons were attackod, of whom 1,210 diod, tho first four being-uuvacdnated. In 2,770 cases tho disease declared itsolf at tho patients' homes; in threo cases, at tho hospitals; in fourteen cases, in tho prisons; in twenty-seven oases, in the colleges and seminaries; while two hun dred and forty fivp patients belonged to tho Agro Romano' and ninety to tno con tiguous districts. Tho poorer cIoshoh furnisliod nearly all tho victims; tho higher classes ouly twenty-two; tho middlo ?classes, including tho garrison, two hundred and thirty-three; tho me chanics or worlring classes, nino hundred and sixty-four. The persons Vaccinated who wore attacked wore flyo hundred and twenty-one, of whom soventytwo died, or 18.81 per cent. Tho parsons not vaccinated who wore attackod were 2,280, of whom 1,006 died, or 40.01 per cent. In three hundred and thirty-nine eases, of which oighty-two wore fatal (24.80 per cent.), it could not bo discovered whctlior vaccination had been practiood. Tho deaths varied in the following propor tion, aocording to the place in which the pationts wore treated: At homo, forty six donths par one huudrod patients; at tho hospital of Bau Spirito, twenty three per cent.; ht Son Giovanni, in Lalerano, twenty-one percent.; at tho Military Hos pital, eight per cent.; at the Hospital of tli? Fato-Ben-Fratilli, thirty-six per cont; nt tho Lunatio Asylum, sixty per oent. Among those vaccinated tho greatest number of doaths occurred lietween one, Bovon, fourteen, and thirty years of age. Tlift Art of Spelling. A correspondent of tho Boston Adittr titer submits the following statement to those wh<? believo, with Fronois Galton, that human accomplishments are to a great extent' hereditary: In Philadol Shia, in a spelling mntch hold nt tho : cadomy of Music, two sisters took tho i two prize*. In Roxbury two brothurs j took tho prizos at a spelling match. In i Northborough, Mass., a mother and liar I son took the first and second prizes in I a town hall spelling match. In Havor hill, at a spelling contest, a brother and j sister wore tho last two to comi?ete for I the prizo. The oonfest of those two | quite atnusod tho audienoe, till it finally ended over tho word caliph, or calif. The authority required tho rendering to bo oalipli, and Harvard won. though a subsequent search of authorities showed both forms of spelling to b? correct The victor graoefully transferred tho ju^ie,a silver cako-baaket, to his sis It must be remembered, in giving weight to thoso four examples, that two of a family do not always compete nt tho immo time.

" Mr. Baruum cortalnly doaorves great credit for an enterprise which is ealculated to afford a vast amount of Innocent, popular amuse ment | and although this gigantto venture in rolvea an enormous outlay of money, it will present too many attractions not to be generally (attained." Amazing as thli exhibition seema from the SsseriptioQ given by i/arjtr a, we can ear. drome nor* interesting and Instructive than any other. It is the great proceasion known as " Tho Congree* of Munarcus." The Harjxi't mentioning this, became, probably, they supposed Mr. Barnum would not dare to Incur the expense of transporting Much an enormous affair through the oouutry. But be will do bo, and here is a brief doecrintion of thin dazzling and bewildering exhibition, ae given by a New York cotemporary j "Of all the gorgeous pageants the world ever aaw the 'Cougross of Nations' to the greatest, and bow tho eurpaeeing geniua of even Barnum could produce it to a wouder. The ooetumei are true to life, and rnanr of them aro genuine, having been procured direct from the nationalities which they represent. Tho individuals employed to penonat* the historical character- hare tho most faithful re Mmblauce to tbeoriglnato in face an?l physique. Each nation fluds its special jmrtraituro in some kind of triumphal car. brilliantly hedooked with appropriate flag*, emblems, colors and in tricate device*, and all sort* of characteristics in the wsy of peculiar uniforms, animals, ?oldicry, attendants aud music.

Any attempt at imitatiuu ou the part of ambitious and unscrupulous showmou for years to come will result iu the most inglorious failure. Nona other than the 'Prince of Bbowmeu' himself would undertake it, and nono other than the great aud irrepressible Barnum oould achieve so signal a triumph."

Tho dofraudod circus mon and other* connected with the concern finally obtained the aid of tho law to compel a settlement of their Just claims, and tho wholo matter ended hi tho show being attached at Hamilton, and in an auction sale of the circus property at Lebanon yesterday afternoon.

He says that all exhibitions with whioli he to connected will give his initials, " P. T.," aud also publish his portrait by way of identification. To bo forewarned is to bo fore armed. '? A word to the wise to sufficient'' As Mr. Barnum'a great Hippodromo travels under an expense of noarly ten thousand dol lars oach day It can exhibit only In large dtie*.
