Greek, says that in Candia there is no tide.
Lord Byron spoke of it as an “untideless
sea,” and, besides, though there was one it
would neveirrcach Melidoni, as it lays high
up in the mountains- Therefore, the loss
of the 3,000, and also the submission Of th%
insurgents, must be a fabrication emanating
from a Turkish source.
—A change has been made in engineer
ing of the. Russian lines, and the French
, Engineers have been relieved of their du
i lies. Messrs. Winaus have obtained anew
contract for working the St. Petersburg &
•vMGßaiffW Railway upon -terms still more fa
vorable -to tkemthan their-present contract.
Four hundred locomotives are to be built at
the railway works at Alexandrowski, near
St. Petersburg, and within the last few days
specifications have .been deceived in L6ndon
for locomotives for the Russian lines.
—The following may be relied on as a
private statement of the French Emperor
in regard to the Mexican expedition, made
immediately after the first announcement
concerning the withdrawal of his troops:
“ I have given it up entirely. I was drawn
into it through false documents and false
representations. I was led to suppose there
was a population on which the Government
coula be established, but there is no such
population. I want my marshals and my
troops at home, and shall bring them, giv
ing the whole thing up, without even ask
ing for a financial settlement with Mexico.”
—The British Secretary of State for War,
has decided upon granting a substantial re
wai to the family of the unfortunate de
ceased, Mr. Jacob Snyder, the inventor of
the new breech-loader. The funeral of Mr.
Snyder, who-was an American, took place
at Kensal Green Cemetery. Only a few
hours before his death, Mr. Snyder informed
a friend at his bedside that he had anew
secret with regard to the great principle of
national defense, more important than any
one had yet discovered. “I will tell you
the secret to-morrow,” said he, “ when you
call to see me.” The morrow came, but he
was dead, and his secret with him.
—Lyons, France, is in distress because
the world no longer buys her figured silk?.
In 1858 she exported $17,000,000 worth,
but in 1863 she* exported but $2,000,000,
and-this year but $1,400,000. Her people,
thrown out of employment on account of
the caprice of fashion, are in a condition of
extreme suffering. Having exhausted all
the charity of her own people, Lyons begs
; the world to rctnrn to return to its former
tastes, and wear again the figured silks.
Jhis is echoed in Paris, and that the ladies
•here, who lead the world, can resist the
ilie of woe from their suffering country
men and women, is hardly to be supposed.
Thiir journals urge a return to the figured
silks, and Eugenia’s dressmaker will proba
bly settle the question by going back to the
styles of the last decade.
1101111, FARM MD GARDEN.
Cellars. —Close up only when there is
danger of freezing. Fruit should be kept
at a uniform low temperature —as low as it
can be without injury. The changes that
go on in ripening fruit, generate heat, and
this should be borne in mind. They also
cause the liberation of injurious gases, and
when fruit is stored iu cellars under dwel
lings, ventilation should be provided. An
opening into the flue of a chimney is as
good as any other.
Keeping and Settling Coeebe.— The fol
lowing appears valuable; “For one pound
coffee, take one egg and beat it well. When
the coffee is nicely browned and cool
enough not to cook the egg, pour the egg
over it, stirring it until every kernel is
coated as with a varnish, aud let it stand a
few minutes in a wanq place until it dries.
Tnis will prevent the escape of all aroma,
is not affected by moisture, and the egg
helps settle the coffee when it is ground and
steeped.”— Farmer's Daughter, Hastings,
Michigan.
Sheep. —lf sheep are in poor condition
now, they must be gradually brought up;
feed oats in the sheaf, a few daily, and
some roots and good hay. When grass
fails, hemlock boughs once or twice a week
are good. Let all have the range of dry
yards or fields, and warm sheds well ven
tilated. The period of gestation in ewes is
about five months, (152 days,) and a flock
in good order is rarely served in less than
three to five weeks. If sheep put up to fat
at this season, sell in February, March, or
April for enough to pay their present value,
and for all the grain fed to.them, there is a
profit. Their manure will be full pay in
many places.
Receipt tor Curing Meat:— i-To 1 gallon
of water, take 1J- lbs. of salt, h lb. of su
gar, I oz. of saltpetre, £ oz. of potash. .In
this ratio the pickle to be increased to and
quantity desired. Let these be boiled to
gether until all the dirt from the sugar rises
to the top and is skimmed off. Then throw
it into a tub to cool, and when cold pour it
over your beef or pork, to.remain the.usual
time,, say four or five wfeeks. The- meat
must be well covered with pickle, and
should not be put down for at least two or
three days after killing; during which time
it should be slightly sprinkled with pow
dered saltpetre, which removes all the sur
face blood, &c., leaving the meat fresh and
clean. Some omit boiling the pickle, and
find it to dp well, though the operation of
boiling purlfies'the pickle by throwing off
the dirt always to be found in salt and su
gar. If this receipt is properly tried, it
will never be abandoned. There is none
that surpasses it, if so good.— Germantown
Telegraph.
Could not keep House without It.— Mrs. Persit
S. Black, of Paris Hill, Me., writes: “ I have had it five
years, and done all the sowing for ray fa mily; and now
I fcel that Ixoud not keep house a week -without- it. : '
‘J. It. GIuSmaRLAiN, of South Now Berlin, N. ¥,
;writes:.. -“.lt suits ns in every way. ffe really ftel
that we rvould not keep house without it.”
A, Yancev, of Mount Pleasant, lowa, writes: ‘ Have
used one cf your machines (Willcox & Gibbs), in our
family for three years. It has paid for itself several
times over. We would not know how to keep house
without it ”

Dr. Schenck’s Mandrake Pills,—A Sub
stitute for Calomel.
These Pills are composed of various roots, having the
power to relax the secretions of the liver as promptly
and effectually as blue pill or mercury, and without
producing any of those disagreeable or dangerous
effects which often follow the use of the latter.
In all bilious disorders these Pills may be used with
confidence, as they promote the discharge of vitiated
bile, and remove those obstructions from the liver and
biliary ducts, which are the cause of bilious affections
in general.
SCHENCK’S MANDRAKE PILLS cure Sick Head,
ache, and all disorders of the Liver, indicated by sallow
skin, coated tongue, costiveuess, drowsiness, and a
general feeling of weariness and lassitude, showing
that the liver is in a torpid or obstructed condition.
In short, these Pills may be used with advantage iu
all cases where a purgative or alterative medicine is
required.
Please ask for “Dr. Sohenck’s Mandrake Pills,” and
observe that the two likenesses of the Doctor are on
the Government stamp—one when in the lasi stage of
Consumption, and the other in his present health.

headache, toothache, croup, colic, quinsy, sore throat,
and pains m ary dart of the body. Remember, this
article is a success—not an experiment; for 19 years it
has been tested. No medicine has ever had each arep
utation as this: silently it has worked its way before
the public, and ail are loud in its praise. “Chronic
Rheumatism.” Thousands who laid for weeks on a
bed of agony, and neter walked for months without
the aid of crutches, with this c< mplaint, can testify to
the magical effects of this liniment. They are cured
and proclaim its virtues throughout the land. Remem

trid sore throat, quinsy, and diptheria are robbed of
their terrors by a timely use of the Venetian Liniment.
It has saved hundreds the past three months. Price,

KNOWLEDGE OFTEN SAVES LIFE.—
Every living being has in his system
IMPURITIES.
When these are within their natural liw' i our health
is good; but when they are in excess, pains, colds,
rheumatism, gout, debility, costiveness, diarrhea, dys
entery, erysipelas, &c, afflict us. What we have to do
to recover out health is to take out from the BOWELS
AND THE CIRCULATION the excess of imparities.
This done, health follows of necessity.
BRANDRETH’S PILLS
aro the only medicine that can do this with entire
safety to all the organs of the body.
HUNDREDS OF THOUSANDS
are now living who have adopted BRANDRETH’S
PILLS as their only remedy for periods of from thirty
to fifty years, and whose average heath is excellent.
Triey have always cured themselves, when sick, by

The Season of Storms.
The blasts of autumn and the chill storms of early
winter are apt to make sad inroads upon the constitu
tions of the feeble. In old times at the commencement
of every season it was the fashion to lake a strong
cathartic as a safeguard against a change of tempera
ture. It was a worse than senseless practice. The
people of our day understand the matter better. In
stead of depleting the system they reiuforco it. In
the method they adopt they exhibit a wise discrimi
nation. Instead of resorting to the vitiated stimu*
lants of commerce, or any of the compounds derived
from them they put their faith in the only absolutely
pure invigorant procurable in the market—HOSTET_
TEHS STOMACH BITTERS. Their faith is well
founded. Never has any tonic medicine been prepared
with such scrupulous precision and conscientious care
It is a vegetable compound of which every ingredient
is sound, wholesome, and medicinal in the true sense
of the word. Now we have three prominent national
complaints. One-half of the adult population of the
United States suffer more'or less, cither from diseases
of the stomach, dor mgements of the liver, or affections
of the kidneys, la no other laud under Heaven are
these maladies so general as in this country, and
HOSETTER’S BITTERS is a specific for them all,
unless organic in their origin, and, therefore, beyond
all cure. And let those who are fortunate enough to
be exempt from them-at present understand one
great fact, viz; that an occasional use of this vitalizing
tonic will as certaiuly prevent them as the sun will
prevent the earth from freezing where its genial beams
descend.— Communicated.

Among the Advantages Claimed for the Weed
Sewing Machine, please note the following:
It can make but one Stitch, and that the Lock— this
it riever fails to do.
The Needle is straight—therefore sure and powerful.
The Blade of the Needle is shorter than that of any
other Shuttle Machine in use.
Its speed is superior to most—thus producing more
effect with the same effort.
It is not Noiseless, but few are more so.
They not only run quietly but easily.
The Tension is the most simple and effective of any.
Tlie feed is perfect. Admirably arranged for exam
ination, cleaning, oiling, &c.
With its shuttle and straight short needle— simple
yet perfect feed and tension—speed and easy motion,
it produces the best stitch, with the least trouble, in
the shortest time, without destroying the life and
elasticity of the thread or silk.
Special attention is called to the fact that the
arrangements of the Weed Sewing Machine
are such that a firm and elastic seam can be made
with light tension, and retain the pliability of the silk
or thread equally with hand sewing.
Prices correspond with those of other first-class
Machines. Every Machine is Warranted to give per
fect satisfaction.

REASONS WHY THE
American Watch
MADE AT
WALTHAM, MASS.
•IS THE BEST.
It is made on the best principle. Its frame is com
posed of SOLID PLATES. NO jar can interfere with
the harmony of its working and no sudden shock can
damage its machinery. Every piece is made and fin
ished by machinery, (itself famous for its novelty, as
well as for its effectiveness) and is therefore properly
made. The watch is what all mechanism ahculd be—
ACCURATE, SIMPLE, STRONG and ECONOMICAL.
Except some high grades, too costly for general use,
foreign watches are chiefly made bv women and boys
Such watches are composed of several hundred pieces,
screwed and riveted toge her, and require constant re
pairs to keep them in any kind of order. Ali persons
who have carried “ ancros ” “ lepines,” and “Englisn
patent lovers,” are perfectly well aware of the truth of
this statemei t.
At the beginning of our enterprise more than 10 years
ago, it wascur fixst object to make a thoroughly good
low priced watch for the million, to take the place of
these foregn impositions; the refuse of foreign factor
ies, which were entirely unsaleable at homo and per
fectly worthless everywhere.
How well wo Lave accomplished this, may he under
stood from the fact that after so many years of public
trial, we now make MOKE Til AN HALF OF ALL THE
WATCHES SOLD IN THE UNITED STATES, and
that no others bare ever given such universal satisfac
tion. While this department of onr business is con
tinued with increased facilities for pet feet work, we
are at present engaged in the manufacture of watches
of the very HIGHEST GRADE KNOWN TO CHRO
NOMETERY, unequaled by anything hitherto made
by ourselves, and unsurpassed by anything made in
the world. For this purpose we have the amplest fa
cilities. We have erected an addition to our main
building, expressly for this branch of our business,
and have filled it with the best workmen in our ser
vice. New machines and appliances have been con
structed which perform their work with consummate
delicacy aud exactness. The choicest and most ap
proved materials only are used, and we challenge com
parison between this grade of our work, and the finest
imported chronometers. We do not pretend to sell
cur chronometers for less money than foreign watches,
but wo do assert without fear of contradiction, that
for the same money our product is incomparably su
perior. All our watches, of whatever grade, are fully
warranted, and this warrantee is good at all times
against us or our agents in all parts of the world.
CAUTION. —The public are cautioned to buy only of
respectable dealers. Ail persons selling counterfeits
will be prosecuted.
