STAR OF THE NORTH.
Rgncmtnrai department. Faiut up the Iron Toole. The action of the weather upon farm im plements when they are not protected, we have found hy experience, to do nearly as much, and sometimes more, toward their destruction than the wear and tear. Plows, cultivators, and such like tools, are in use only in the warmer parts of the season.— During the winter they lie unused by their owners, but, unless protected sufficiently, the weather uses them pretty hard. The farmer's use of them is severe at times, but it is occasional and interrupted. The weath er's use of them is constant, uninterrupted, either by day or by night; every moment of time the action of the elements, heat and cold, expands and contracts, moisture per <vades and rusts them, and oxygen combines with them and forms coat after coat of rust, corroding and rusting them away. It will be a good plan during some of the spare moments of winter time, say of a stormy day, to'over-haul them, clean them np and .cover the iron parts with paint and the wood parts 100. A mixture of sulphur and linseed oil boiled together with or without any coloring matter, is a good application. We also find the following recommended by an exchange paper, which will making a good cover ing : Take of coal taT, too parts; common beeswax, one part; clarified beef's tallow, two parts ; linseed oil, one part ; spirit turpentine, one part, and fuse the whole ■over a slow fire. When liquified, stir in lamp black, or any other coloring matter that may be desired and apply while w arm. Plows, wheels, barrows, crow-bars, culti vators, and indeed any ofher farming im plements, constructed either w holly or in part of iron, should receive a coating ot this every fall. It fills the pores and pre vents all possibility ol corrosion.— Aluinc Farmer. A Stitch in lime. The lenghtening days and melting snows botoken the coming of Spring. Every far mer rejoices in its coming, but is every oi.e ready for it ? At the North little or nothing can be done in working the soil, this mon'h, except in the water of draining. But much preparation can be made for Spring work. Implements of all kinds should now be looked over and put in good repair. Are the plows in proper condition ; and of the harrows are no teeth gone and none loose ? The mar,ure-forks, shovels, spades, hoes, crowbars, cradles, harness, wagons,chains, •are they all at home, under the cover, anil in complete order ? How often are tools lent to neighbors, and not returned till cal led for from necessity, and then are out of ■otder and must be sent to the shop for re pair ? What a loss, then, of time and pa tience and neighborly good feeling l Let us also look into the seed department. As grass and clover need an early start, no time should now be wasted in securing good -eed. So of wheat and oats and corn; now is the time to look them over, and pro vide lor sowing and planting. Whoever has not good seed of every kind he expects to use, should spare no pains or money in securing them. It gives the cultivator no little satisfaction and self-respect to know that he has taken time by the forelock, and made all needful preparation for his work in advance. For him, as well as for every body, il is a good rule to drive one's busi ness and not be driven by it—" A stitch in time saves nine"—often ninety-nine. How THEY PUT OUT FIDES IN FRANCE The Fire department of Paris, like the po lice is a military organization, and consists of 1.000 men. Its members are drawn from the army, and are under the control of the Minister of War, except when on duty as firemen, when they obey the orders of the prefect of police. They are picked, and consequently efficient men, and are careful ly trained and drilled in gymnastic exercises. They are enrolled for the number of years as soldiers in the army, and cost the treasu ry annually 160,000 francs, a little overSlOO,- 000. They ware uniform, blue cassimere jackets buttoned up to the throat, pantaloons of the same stuff, made large, and a brass cap. They have a sirong leather strap round their bodies, in which there is a ring, and by which they can be suspend ed. Their principal arms is a lire axe. No theatrical performance takes place, not even a rehearsal, whether during the day or night, without a squad of firemen on the stage. They are also present at public conserts and balls; every place,in fact over which the police extends its protection and its scrutiny. When they arrive at the place on which they stand guard, they first try all the hydrants and water coclts, to as certain that there is no difficulty in the 6up ply of water. PRESIDENT BUCHANAN uses no tobacco. General Cass drinks no "Bourbon," Senator Douglas uses no pepper, N. P. Willis cuts his own hair, Caleb Cushing shaves and wears no beard, Rufus Choate and Henry- Ward Beecher are dear lovers of cotfee: E. R. Whipple rarely breakfasts before ten, though he begins business at eight; Ed ward Everett writes his extemporaneous ad dresses ; Ralph Waldo Emerson often dines at Parker's, but rarely takes wine; Long fellow smokes a meerchauin.

Ethan Allen was a prisoner in Canada, he was dining with a party of officers and their ladies, and seeing some small red peppers on the table intended to be cut up with meat to season it, he picked one up and put it in his mouth. After chew ing a while upon the though skin, he picked it out of his mouth, and. looking rather ad mirably at it and said, the tears starting in his eyes : —"Ladies and gentlemen, if you have no objections, I will put this little red thing back," and he immedially suited the action to the work.

Blnomsburg, Jan. 20, TBfffe. A card from Dr James Iff. JAKRETT, OP THE NEW YORK LUNO INFIRMARY'—My connection for the past e ghl years with the above Institution, as Chief Physician, and a twelve years' course of steady devotion to the Cure of 'Pulmonary Consumption and its kindred disease, togeth er with my unrivalled opportunities and ad vantages of pathological 'researches—aided not a little by a perfect sy siefn of Mehical In halation—has enabled me to arrive at a de cisive, direct, and successful course of treat ment for the positive "and radical cure of all diaesses of the Throat, Lungs, and Air-Pas sugei. By Inhalation, the vapor and curative properties of medicines are directly address ed to the diseased organs and the integurm-m. 'I do not ndvise the'use of medical Inhalation of any kind, to the exclusion of general heat meat ; arid although I consider it a useful ad juvant in the proper management of those learlul and often fatal diseases, yrt I deem it very necessary that each pa'ient should have the benefit ol both g social and local treat' ment. The suocesß of my treatment in the above diseases, and in the high character of the Institution over which I have so long had the honor to preside, are too well known to need any eulogy 01 comment from me. At the solicitation ol many private and p.-nfes sio lal friends, through whose philanthropic aid tire above charity has been long and lib erally supported, and alter due consideration, I have concluded to make such arrangements ae will bring the benefits of my experience and treatment within the reacti of all, and not confine myself, as heretofore-, to those only who entered the Infirmary, or who w-ere able to visit me at my office. Hoping thetelore that lite arrangement will give entire satislac lion, both to nty professional brethem and the public, I would tespeclfully announce in conclneion that lean be consulted personally or by letter, on all diseases as above, and thui the medicines, the same as used in the Institution brepared to suit each individual case. In j haling vapars, Medical Inhales, &c. &u. will be | lorwarded by express to any part ol the Uni ted Stares or Canadas. TEUMS -My terms of treatment by letter are as follows, via.: $l2 peTtnonlh for each patient, which will include medicine sufficient lor one month's use-; al so, inhaling Vapor, and an inhaling Apparat us. Pay meiils as follows : $6 to paid to Ex- I press Agent on receipt oi the box of Medi cine, arid the balance $6 at the expiration of the month, if the patient is cored or is entire ly satisfied with the treatment. Patients, by giving a lull history of their case, and their symptoms in full, can be treated as well by letter as by personal examination. Patients availing themselves of Dr. Jarrett's treat ment may rely upon immediate and perma nent relief, as he seldom has to treat a case over thirty days. Letters of advice promptly answered. For fntber paotrculars address. JAMEL M. JARRETT, M. D., No. 820 Broadway, oor. Twelfth Si. N. Y. P. S.—Physicians and others visaing ihe city are respectfully inviied to call at the In firmary-, where many interesting cases can be witnessed, and where our approved oppur ralue for the inhalation of medicated vapor can beseen and inspected.
