gained nearly twenty pounds of flesh Bince" I
reached Europe, if tho scales are correct, go

crease in strength ie quite equal to the gain
in weight. But the ugly cough is a good

and the voice feebler and yet more good-for-nothing.

3When Hamilton was Washington's
militpjy Secretary, he was ordered to meet
the (3om.mander-in-Chief one morning at
sunrise. Washington was first at the spot,
and waited five minutes before Hamilton ap
peared. The Secretary apologized by Baying
that "something must be the matter with his
watch." Another appointment was niade for
the next morning, which was similarly
broken. Hamilton again covered his negli
gence with a complaint against his watch;
to which the punotual soldier replied,
"Then, sir, you must either get a new watch,
or I must get a new Secretary."

The Snail Mania in Paris.
A Paris correspondent of the Boston Trav
eller says:
Snails are crawling down more and more
throats here annually. Ten years ago ne
body but apothecaries and herb doctor shops,
and a little dirty, diner restaurant in the
K-ue Saint Honore kept them, and now thoy
nave a place ot tneir own at tne great mar
kets, and the restaurateur that does not keep
them ia considered decidedly "slow." A
million and a half snails crawl down our
throats every season; at Dijon alone they
unug ii. uuc. per nunarea, ana o,uuui. worm
are sold, which every Frenchman vow, by
their Cocker and other reckoners, are equal
in aliment to one hundred and fifty ordinary
calves don't ask me, please, for the equa
tion. Snails have one great virtue in tho
Papist's eyes; when you can eat nothing else,
you may fill yourself full of snails until you
feel like an a.unconda after he swallowed an
ox, without breaking your fast or ceasing to
inoriny your nesn ana via jmick. snails are
"fish" in Papists' dictionaries. Apicius gives
an excellent recipe for cooking them. We
eat them (now that the Saint Honore restau
rant has joined Troy) cooked on the spider or
in an oven after they have been boiled in
their sbnll and seasoued with fresh butter
and parsley chopped fine. They cause great
ravages in vineyards, and cure consumption
in man.
In 180, they did moro damage in Lower
Charente vineyards than the odium, and no
way is known by which they can be driven
from vineyards and orohards exoept by re
moving them forcibly and eating them with
fresh butter and chopped parsley, after the
" spider " has given them a " shake down."
Miohelet, in his book on insects, quoted with
eulogy the public spirit of a French professor
at Rouen, who came into his lecture room one
day, bearing in one hand a whito porcelain
soup plate filled with cockroaches, lice and
chinches; " MosBieurs," said the patriot, these
inseots have for centuries preyed upon man,
let us prey upon them." Following Hamlet's
advice, he euitod the action to the word, and
commenced devouring them ; cockroach, louse
and cbinoh were tossed into his mouth, and
crunched to pieceB with professional adroit
ness. He avowed they were delightful ; the
eookroach had tho flavor, if I remember
rightly, of sandwich, trout and pine-apple,
the louse smacked of truffled partridge, (be
neficent louse, to come ready truffled to our
lips I) and the chinch wnsjust like ripe veni
son and plover, married by Soyer and put to
bed in some rich thick sauce. What aa epi

Potato Starch There are five starch man
ufactories in the town of Stowe, Vermont, eaoh
of which eonsutnes from seventeen to twenty
thousand bushels of potatoes yearly, yielding
about eight pounds of star oh to a bushel,
The cost of the potatoes dolivered at the man
ufactory is only one shilling per bushel. These
Vermont hills seem to take to potatoes as natur
ally as an Irishman, and five hundred bushels
to the acre is reported as a common yield there
thin year. The kind chiefly cultivated for
starch is the California potato, large and
ooarse. The process of starch making is very
simple. The tubers, after being washed, are
grated fine by machinery, and the pulp, diluted
with water, is pumped into a large vat and
allowed to remain for twecty-four hours, or
until tuo Bturcn has eoltled to tho bottom; a
part of the water is then drawn off, and the
Btarch stirred with the remainder, which is
then pumped into smaller vats, when having
again settled, the water 1b drawn away en
tirely, leaving the clean, white Btarch in a solid
mass at the bottom, oovered with a residuum
of dirt; this soraped off, it is ready for tha drv-ing-houe.
The large, floe-grained lumps are
placed on a platform of slats in a room where
the atmosphere is kept at a very high tempera
ture until the lumps become dry and soparate
into cylindrical crystals, small enough to press
through the interstioea to a second platform
below, whence, after cooling, it is ready to be
transferred to barrels and a mnrKet. Spring

Oman Steaming Onb Hundred Milts an
Hour. A letter is published in the Buffalo
papers signed by Ex-President Millard Fill
more, Hou. 8. G. Havens, and a number of
influential citizens, addressed to Rollin Ger
main, requesting him to make a public ex
planation of his principles of oonstruotion for
atoam navigation. He proposes to establish,
among others, the following propositions
That steamers may be constructed to run one
hundred miles an hour, and so strong that the
greatest oceanio forces would not endanger
their safety ; that the economy of their move
ments will bo such as to reduce the cost of
transportation to loss than one-fifth of the
present rates ; that when loaded with a large
freight, a full passenger list, and fuel enough
for a voyage around the world, it would not
draw over twenty-two feet ; und that as
war ship one would be an overmatch to all
existing navies. Mr. Germain has made the
aubjeot his study for thirteen years, and now
makes it public for the first time. Eminent
engineers of the United States pronounce the
plan practicable, ami destined to work a com
plete revolution in steam navigation.
Spanish Assaults upon Shipping British
Vessels Fired upon at Tarifa. The Liver
pool 1'ost says: The Ocm of the Sea, which has
arrived at this port from America, was fired
upon when passing the Spanish batteries at
Tarifa; and yesterday a twenty-eight-pound-shot,
which was received on that occasion,
and whioh was lodged in her hull, was ex
hibited at the Underwriters' Rooms. Several
other British vessels have been similarly as
sailed; and no doubt it the attention of the
British Government has not already been
called to the oircumBtanoe, they will Boon
apprised of it and take the necessary steps
procure explanation and satisfaction from the
Spanish authorities.
