Many ex|>erienced and reliable Farmers certify
to the suj»eriority of the above, as being fully

even excepting Peruvian Guano, and as it is

f A CLAY WATCH.
t M. Koby, of Paris, has a timepiece made
.. entirely of clay. All the works, plates, cog*.
y and wheels are made of aluminium; and M.
Koby believes that it is much better for these
; purposes than the metals generally employed.
‘ l It is much lighter, does not require so much
power to conduct the wheels, and, therefore,
I with a heavy balance, will obtaiu a better
J result for regularity. It is very hard and
j smooth whem hammered, and the friction
will bo reduced to almost nothing.
- j THREE ENDS TO A ROPE.
A lad, wishing to turn sailor, applied to
' the captaiu of a vessel for a berth. The
captain, wishing to intimidate him, handed
f him a piece of rope and said ; “If you want
to make a good sailor, you must make three
ends to that rope.” “I can do it,” readily
II responded the boy. “Here is one, and here
i is another—that makes two. Now, here is the
, third”—and he threw it overboard.
I OLD MANSION.
The New York Times says, there is still
standing in that city, near the foot of Filly
tit th street, on the Fast River, the old Beck
’ man Mansion house, which was occupied by
; (ien. Howe, as his head quarters, alter the
! battle of Long Islund. it is a venerable
| structure, built in the ancient style, and was
evidently, at its day, one of the finest houses
1 on Manhattan island.
MUSIC IN AUSTRIA.
| An Austrian political economist has cal
culated that with the annual money paid in
! salaries to the )>rima donna of Vienna, “a
i hundred square miles of marsh land might
j be turned into fruitful corn fields.” The pro
fessor forgets that, nevertheless, the singers
by their sweet voices do their best to culti
| vate the finest ears!
