I gava the cradle an oscilatory kick, and then burst forth into the well-known burden of ' Bye a baby bunting," but the little villain absolutely declined to shut his eyes again, like a sensible baby. He opened them wider than two miniature moons, stared at me with an air of male volence that has made me a firm believer in human depravity ever since, and de liberately began to cry. And the harder I rocked the cradle and the louder I saug, the more resolutely did that baby cry. " . " ' He's hungry," thought I to myself. " Babies must be fed, and it's highly reprehensible of Bertha to stay away ao long." , -. - ' - ; fco I went down into the pantry and instituted a search for some milk ; which I have a vague idea was the diet gener ally preferred by the toothless, infancy.

Nonsense! there was no probability of that. I sat down on Bertha's low rock- I ing chair, aud planting the baby firmly on my knee, applied the spout of the pitcher to his mouth. Would you believe it? He wouldn't drink a drop. He screwed his mouth as tightly shut a if he never intended to open it again, aud doubled himself over backward with a strength of will that would have been remarkable in a full grown man, but was simply marvelous in a ten-month's old baby. I persevered and he persevered. I poured the milk over his neck, his embroidered dret-s-waist, and his coral amulets ; he would have been drowned sooner than to open his mouth half a quarter of an inch.

From Kles, a dl'Iifious soup can be concocted, the old ' liiui bone, which, with us, is tlfrowo away, give3 a delicious flavor to pea soup ; even thicken and turkey bones can be made of service in soup making. If the economical housekeeper woul? keep 'a soup jar, into which eould be throwu nil scrap of meat, all crumbs of bror,'vi-ry bit of potato, cabbage onioa iwi'd, for one or two days, thei the morning, add two quarts of boi watcjgtialt and pepper, and simmer slo ly lor several hours; half an hoi 101c giBiicr Birain it, a'M tomato ca or any seasoning desired, and he boiling point, then serve it she wil uiai uui. ui woat nmogei may styiu re fuse and rubbish, she has a nicely sea soned and appetizing 8'up. We all ac knowh'Jire tbat a soup is a great addition to our"4inner yet daily wej throw away the needed materials. f Very good soups can bS nia le with out one particle ot meat. Take one quart can of tomato, or twelve large tomatoes. If the Utter, prepare theni as usual, and chop verv fine, then boii one hour: if ll A. ... A' I..

Jiil all ." minutes, and you will have a soup re.-:einbliug oyUr soup. This, with canned tomato, can be prepared in twenty-five minutes. It is economical and nourishing. White soup cau be made with onions, breid aud milk. Crumble through a culhudcr one quarter of a common sized loaf ol' bread. Uoil one quart of milk with two good sized onions chopped very line; bud hall an hour. . By putting the milk iuto apail. and the pail in a kettle of water, there is no danger of burning the milk. Spriukle in tho broad erumba i i . 1 i a j (erack "ruuibs can be H-H-d as woll ami pejj)fr to tne taste, serve, and you will liiul a moi-t relishing soup. Two eggs wH beaten,-added jut bctore you take it from the stove, stirring so they will not curdle, will make it richer. While soup made from veal bones is deliciuts. Bjil your ones three hours with oic onion, one turnip and two car rots, ifjain and boila:iin; just before you see it, add one prut of cream (milk will d', if the cream is not at hand), with j three orgs weli beaten; remove irom the stove and stir rapidly. This recipe is much Eked, aud is not expensive where milk atdeggs are abundant. There are many richer soups, but the above arc very economical. We might imitate our neighbois across the wjter in rechauffes. We roast six to ten poinds of beef or mutton, and if our families are small, live for a day or more in the cold remnants; then give or throw anay the bone. Few of us care for cold meat for any length of time, but we caa make a dolicious dish out of those de?pised slices of beef or mutton. Take a deeps jellow nappy, cut your slices of meat thin as possible, aud cut off the grizzled tdgeifj put a layer iu the dish, dust over pepper, salt and sifted sweet marjwfaiu or sage, or, if liked, a chopped onion; hd your disn halt lull in tin manner; then add the cold gravy from ho roast, taking off every par iP t'..i .T,i rt In bnlf rj ttvi-rtir. r !' or if grinned or ripe tomatoes can a quintity'of tlfose.

There is a volume of truth iu it : Saturday night makes the people hu man, sets their hearts to beating softly, as they used to do before the world turn ed them into war drums and jarred them to pieces with tattoos. The ledger closes with a cla.-di; the iron door vaults come to with a bautr; up eoes the. shutter with a will ; click goes the key in the lock. It is Saturday night, aud busiuess breathes free again.

Here are his treasures after all save the re cord in the old family Bible and not iu the bank. , May be you are a bachelor, tf'sty and forty. Then, poor fellow Saturday night is nothing to you as you are noth ing to anybody. Get a wife, blue-eyed or blaek-eyed, bnt above ajinp-eyed. Get a little home, ny1 le, and a little sofa, and a half, an a half read wils ey ourage.

I am, gentlemen, The Cngllmh rollflcal Critin. What will be tho great topic of the hour? Scarcely the Irish Church jnes-, tion, for virtually that is settled already. Shall it be the question whether tho queen is or Is not entitled to the respect of heubject? The radical party scein very much inclined to put that in the foreground. The Daily News used lai gusge yesterday which has never before been applied to the reigning Sovereign. It insinuated that the relations of the liberal party toward the Crown were be coming very unsettled, and something more than the fate of a Ministry depend- on present crisis, ihc c'pectator, is moruing, takes the same line, - and asks whether the radicals are to ''march to the polls to the refrain of Ubenczcr Dlliot's hymn, 'God save the people?' That will not bo a nice beginning for the new electors. The blame of having originated this issue is laid at Mr. Die. raelli's door. He has given tho Houso of Commons to understand, in an indirect manner, that the Queen agrees with him on the Irish question. Suppose she docs. Suppose, with the firmness of her' racer she adheres to her opinions? Will the radical party propose to dethrone b'-r? Well, yes, they aseure us they arc veil ing to go as fur as that. Tery likely but what about tqe people? Is the mon archy really fallen away ao much in popular estimation as Mr. (J old win Smith asserts? Of course, if the Queen is to be thrown ovcrloard the moment he differs with the radical majority on any question, there is an end to the security of our present constitutional Govern ment. It is all very fiue to make lou 1 professions of loyalty when a Literal. Ministry is in office, but it' loyalty is to be exchanged for dark menaces when . the conservatives happen to be the advi hcra of the Soveic'gn, we may know what: to expect before niauy years aro over.

There is no fact more clearly established in the physiology of man than this, that th . brain expends its energies and itself du- m 91.a rinthc hours ot wakciuineRS, auu tuas these are recuperated during sleep.. It the recuperation does not exoeed the ex penditure, the brain witners tuis in sanity; Thus it is that in early Englifb history persons who were condemned to rlr-attr tj trcf tt - p reicp ted from nfecptrtt always died raving maniacs; tnus it is also that those who are starved to death become insane. The brain js notfrotrr ished, and they cannot sleep. The prac tical inferences arc three ; 1. Those who think mo-t, who do most brain-work, require most sleep. 2.
