Thy auburn curls hung dowu. Kate, and kissed thy lilly cheek; thy azure eyes, half Siled with tears, bespoke a spir it meek. To be so charmed us I was then had ne'er before occurred, when the rattling of the beans, Kate, was ail the sound I heard. I thought it was not wrong, Kate, so leaning o'er the dish, as you snatched up a lot of beans, I snatch ed a nectared kiss.

The cast of the horse for this monument, at Jfuuich, is one of the great' feats of of modern foundry, as fifteen tons of bronze had to be melted and kept in a state of fluidity. , For several days and uights prcviously a large fire was at these huge masses, which required to be stirred, at times. When the bronze was liquified, an ultimate assay was made iu a small trial cadtj aud to heigteu the color some more copper was added. Successively ail the chambers through which the metal had to How iu the form was cleared of the coai with which theji had lobe kept warm, aud the master examined ail the air spiracles aii'd the issues of the metal; the props of tha tubes Were placed and every mail had his duty and place assigned to him Fi nally, the master amid the intense expec tation of,thc many art amateurs present pronounced the word3, 'Iu the name of trod,' and then three mighty strokes open ed the fiery gulf, out of which the glowing metal flowed in a circuit to th large form. The sight was magnificent, and, in. the lit- 11c sea 01 ure siooa tne master,; auu gave his commands about the successive open ing of the props. 1 lot vapor poured from the air spiracles iu the conduits, the met al boiled in waves; still no decision yet,as the influx of the bron'zein the very veins of the figure could be but slow. At once flaming showers jumped but of the air conduits, and the master proclaimed the cast to have succeeded. A loud cheer followed, when the master approached .Mr, Crawford, the artist of the Wash ington Monument, to cougratulate him on his success. Another cheer was given to M. de Millar the chief of the roy al foundry of Munich, who had personally conducted the work. Cool!

It can be used with safe ty in the discharge of fire-arms, but not with so much safety as powder. Its cost, weight for weight, is a little more than gunpowder, but owing to the, greater stron trth force for force' it is cheaper The Governments of France, Prussia, lustria, Russia aud England," have made a great number of experiments on the use of gun cotton in fire-arms, and iu all cases the experiments were against its adoption in the place of gunpowder. In blasting rocks it is extensively used. The objections to its use arc the inequality of its action compared with gunpowder, the effect in the gun is greater, its projectile force varies with the compression of it 111 the gun, it attracts more moisture, alters slowly from the loss of acid, explodes under some circumstances at 154 degrees Fahrenheit, the large size of the cat ridges, &g.

Times of the 19th ult., a para graph appeared containing the account of tho renditioti of a colored servant Jack belonging to Dr. Tucker, Of Alabama, on board the brig Selma. A terrific excite ment prevailed in Boston, and loud cries of, " where is Tucker?" and "send a steam boat after the Scluia," were heard in all quarters. It turned out that the "color ed servant Jack," was a black woolly jack ess, and the paragraph had been furnished by some waggish reporter, , causing an awful waste of sympathy by the citizens of the "Modern Athens." 3l?'""A Quaker, on hearing a man curse a particular piece of road, went up to him and said, 'I aui under obligations to thee. What thou hast done I would have done, but my religion forbids it. Don't let my conscience, however, bridle thee. Give thy indignation wings, and sufi'er not the prejudices of others to paralyze the tongue of justice and long suffering yea, verily.'

The same operation should be repeated every day for four days, taking;' care to turn the hams in the tub every time they ure laid down. After this, the' operation may be repeated once every two' days for a week, when it will be fouudthat the meat has absorbed sufficient salt' to preserve it for family use.

Sides of pork should be treated in the rame manner as hams laid in the pickle; but for home nsey during winter, by merely rubbing the sides with salt every day for a week or ten. days, then hanging them in a mcd rately co place to dry for use, the meat is much sweeter than that laid down in picklejv--This information we have derived from. . -one long engaged in curing pork,, and wo have satisfied ourselves, practically, of its, correctness.

About net. ounce each of salt and pepper and halfr au ounce of cloves are sufficient for thir-i .; ty pounds of meat, but the exact qiianti-. ty cannot bo given. No person can go-, wrong if he rubs every part of the whole ' surface of the ham with some of this salt and pepper composition. The ham is. now lit to be rolled!
