From the Sew York Worki,tg farmer. ECONOMY IN WINTERING ST0CX The following practical article is from the Vermont (semi weekly) Eagle, and de serves'to be republish d m every paper in the Union. If our readers will follow the ndv.ee of Mr. Tufts, and at the same time nuke proper use of root-rops as explained in the letters of Messrs.JCampbell, Mason and others, in our former numbers, they will then reach the maximum ofexccllence in wintering stock. The false philanthro py so often urged in favor of giving exer- - :' . p-..;.. r.ttln. is onlv rnualled in vi-e hi ioiiii v.... , folly by those over: nice boisewifcs who acr jb their barkings from motives ol clean liners 3 According to the report of the Commis sioner of Patents for 1848, Vermont pro- duced 1.400.000 ton, of hay, .which at 5 j j.i- .... .mn,,n, In S7J100.000 do'- ! dollars a ton amounts to $7,000,000 do' lars. This is by far the most important crop to the farmer, and if by any means a more economical method of feeding can be practised, by which hu may.rr-ulizc the nme amount .f benefit from six tons than he now does from seven, a siivinn of 51, 000,00:1 annual? wouWc made a sum not to be despised by the hard working people rsf Vermont. If this avng is made and there is no doubt but it may le, i rnust be. not only by krcp:ng more t-tock. but by keeping what they have dff tenth . Some formers have a faculty ol keeping theif s'nek thriving thrrmgh the winter, while others, and the class is a very larjie one, keep their cattle so ioriy, that l fore winter is hall through, they seem but so many walking dictionaries to define the phrase "spring poor;'' and if they arc not "levied on" before spring to satiefy a "crow tax" they have very litl'e then to carry to the pasture except skin and bones. Why ' do firmers practice so differently ? The man who keeps the sleek, thrift) -I.Hik-ing cattle, thinks it fur his interest to do no, while the man who has the poorest stock is equally confident ho cannot aflbrd to keep better. Ono goes UKn the prin ciple of wintering h s stock s a to receive the greatest amount of prowth possible from his hsy ; the lher. that tf keeping his stock as cheap'as possible. To throw fight upon the comparative profits of the.-e two systems, we will look a (moment a: ome established principles common to nil animal, and which must be of great prac tical utility to every stock grower- 1. Every animal requires food in pro portion to the temperature of ibe surround ing medium. '"The animni body is a heat ed mass, which bears the fame relation to surrounding objects as any other heated mBsses. It receives heat when the sur rounding objects are hotter, it lows heat hen they are colder then itself.' How unequal, then, must lie the loss of heat from the animal body in a warm cli mate, when the temperature c,f the air is nearly equal to that of ti e blood, and in the frigid regions.'when the air is 90 or 1 00s lower ; yet it is found that the blood nf the African at the equator is no warmer than that of the northern tribes exposed to till the rigors of this clime, and frequently with very Ihtle clothing or abetter. How then is this loss of heat in the latter case supplied T Obviously by the amount f fjod consumed, for while the one is dnilv satis fied with a few ounces, the other requires his pounds. :Or, if the amount consumed is the same a difference will be found in kind. The African may eat a d ten pounos of light vegetables, but the Ksquimnu will. without The slightest inconvrnience, devour as manv pounds of tallow or lard. Liebig ays, " The source of animal heat is the natural action between the elements of Tuod and the oxygen, conveyed by the circula tion of the blood.to every part of the body This high temperature of the animal body. or, as it inay.be called, disengagement of hpat, w, uniformly and under all circuin ranees, the result of a combination of i r-imhustihle suUtancc with oxygen. The carbon which is converted into carbonic ncid within the body, must give out exactly ps much beat as if it had Ua directly burnt in the air of oxygen gas, According to this theory, the body acts eg a furnace, which must at all times be kept heated to given temperature. The rsrbon of the food is the fuel thut heats the furnace in combination with the oxygen of the atmosphere, drawn into the system by respiration 2. The food of animals is regu'atcd by t!te amount of exercise taken, and the rapidity of breathing. Any animal exposed ti the cold, will soon frez; without some method of warming himself. If he resort to exercise, he will breathe fatter, conse quently inhale more oxygen, which, in combination with the carbon ol the system, pjuduces beat. In proportion as the exer cise is long continued or habitual, increased quantities of carbon must be supplied in the f.od, or the carbon of the system will be exhausted, and the animal starve. It i well known those animals will live the longest wi'bout food,ihat have the most carbon (fat,) and inhale the most oxygen. Birds that are known to have very large organ of respiration, will live but a very short time without food, while a fat pig would be woeks iu starving. - We have an . instance of .a pijr, covered with a slip of earth, liviaj 16) diys, having diminished in weight 120 pounds. Very similar to this is the ease of hybernating animals . they go to their places of seclusion, loaded with Tat, which gradually wastes away," when, on the return of spring, they leave their retirement about as weak and emaci ated a some poorly wintered cattle are driven to their pastures. The breathing and motion of the animals being almost entirely suspended, the accumulated carbon of their systems keeps them alive several months, when, if they were to continue active, it would waste away in a few days. From these principles and facts, we draw the lolloping practical conclusion WARMTH AND QCIET ARE, TO A CERTAIN EXTENT, EQUIVALENT TO FOOD C?.. t ,.T Rnn nnimlj Miikl requires thirty pounds ol dry loader, or a fiftieth of its own weight daily, to sustain itself: 100 pounds of hay is estimated to contain the elements of seven and a hal f pounds of crude flesh. If this acimnl can be induced to eat twelve or fifteen pounds of . . ' . - . sustaining fodder, theconscquence is, tlexh will accumulate or the animal will increase in weight-about one pound a day ; and no increase can be realized unless more food is consumed than ia necessary to supply the wnn'e of the system. But if we can dimin ish the amount of animil waste, it is equi valent to converting tiitiaining fdder into accumulating fodjer. This can be done when the animal is either exposed to the eo'd, or takes more exercise than is news sary for health. If cattle, standing in a eo'd stable, require a given amount of food to keep their weight stationary, they ran lie made to inerPase in vieight.either by giving them more and better odd r, or by making the stable warmer ; and the cnly question with the farmer should be.which is the most economieal t If his object be to ronverl hi fodder into heel and mutton, he run do no only bv having warm stables fur his rattle and sheep ; but if he wishes tp convert m much fodder as possible into manure, he en n keep them in cold stables, or leave them in the njen air, where their appetites will be sharpened by the cold winds and the cxer eisc they will take to keep warm. In recently passing thro several town in this county, I noticed most of tie' cattle ere out, exposed to the cold winds some warming themselves by hooking each other tliouf, others arranged in columns.the larger ind stronger ones being in the warmest p'aces near the buildings.while the smaller ones weie compelled to lake the front ranks, and stand the pi'iless pelting of Boreus on ne of the roughest flays in January about as good economy for the farmers, as it would be to carry their stoves out of d or ind undertake to k'p warm by them, for, !et it be remembered, every animal is n heated mass a furnace :ha:must be kept at the same trinperutiiie under all r.ircum stances. The colder the surrounding me dium, the more rapidly the body cools, and consequently I he more fuel will be required to keep up the heal ; and if this fuel is not supplied in food, both iu quantity and qua lity, the carbon of the system is exhausted to keep up the heal. Repeated experiments have been maJc accurately to ascertain the comparative amount t.f food required by animals warmly sheltered, as compared with those imper fectly sheltered, or kept in the oien air. We take the following from Johnston's Ag ricultural Chemistry : Three sheep of nearly equal weight were wintered, one in the open air, one in an open shed, and one in a close shed. They were f d each with a pound of oats a d iy, and as many turnips as they chose to. eat. The result was as follows : Unsheltered Increase of . weight, S 3 7 Ihe. Tumipseaien, 1912 lbs. Increase on 100 lbs. turnips, i lb. Iu open hed Increase of weight. 3 8 lb. Turni eaten. 1394 lbs. Increase on 100 lbs. turnips, 3-0 lb. In close (bed Increase of weight, 3 8-4 lb. Turnips eaten, 886 lb. Increase on I U0 lbs. turnips, 3-1. ' From this it appears that the sheep kept in a close shed gained about three pounds more than the unslieltered one, while ii consumed less than half the amount of tur nips. Manv similar experiments have been made with like results If these experiments exhibit the matter in i's true light, there is no doubt but the farmers in Vermont might save more than one-seventh of their fodder, or f 1,000,000 annually, by keeping all their animals well housed and full fed. It has been con clusively shown that two sheep, well housed and fed, will yield more profit than three poorly kept ; while the well housed sheep will eat much less than the same number exposed to the weather. It is not necussa ry the fodder shouid be all of the best kind to keep stock in a thriving condition. Il judgment and care are exercised in feeding almost all kinds of fodder may be disposed of without waste. Some farmers are so accustomed to the skin and bone appearance of their animals in the winter, that they hardly expect them to look otherwise. If they are reminded of the increased profits of well fed stock. they tell us they can not afford to keep their cattle high, and perhaps we shall hear a long tirade upon the fully of "book farming. Now let it be understood, lhat what is wanted, is, not better fodder or more of it, but better care and more atten uation to the cow fort of the animal. No farmer need be frightened at the idea of having a warm stable, if he finds the sug ges'ion in a book or newspaper. He know very well there is economy as well as comfort in having a warm Kitchen for 1JBWISBURG CIIKONICL.K AND WEST BKAXCII FARMER his family then why not carry out the same principles of economy at the barn, lhat are practiced in the house! If warm stable ia provided, let the cattle be kept in it instead of warming themselves by exer cise in the open air. But we are told by some, who think they are not able lo give full feed and pro vide shelter, if they can only get their cat tle through the winter, they will recruit in the summer, and be as good as if they were well wintered. This we think a great mistake, unless skin and bones are worth more a pound than flesh. As it takes a large proportion oftbe fodder con' sumed by all animals to supply the animal waste of the system, it is evident the more animals ol a gifen weight that are kept upon a given amount of food, the more of that food will be used as sustaining fodder, and the less as accumulating fodder. A man has thirty tons of hay, upon which he keeps twenty head of young cattle growing through the winter; twenty tons of this are supposed to supply the animal waste, and the other ten tons go to increase the .growth of the animals. Now if this man adds one to the number of his cattle, one ton more of hay will be used as euetaining fidder, and one ton less as accumulating fodder. In other words, more hay will be converted into manure and less into flesh. This economy of giving two animals the fodder of one, is ah;iut the economy of the teamster, when ht takes two wagons to carry the load that might be draw n upon one it is hko the econom y of the engineer, when he attaches lo his train of curs two engines when he hss fuel to heat only one like the economy of the manufacturer who doubles the amount of his machiner without any increise of power to move it economy that would liankrupt the richest corporations' it" practiced as much as it is by many of our farmers in wintering their stork.

Susquehanna Telegraph Company, Some Lite proceedings of this Company will Le found on the first page of this paper, to which we wish to call the parti cular attention of our citizens. Lcwislurg is certainly as deeply interested in this matter as any other town on the route of the contemplated lino of wires j and as it depends entirely upon ourselves, whether, or nut, this important point is to have a place in the electric current, it appears to us to he advisable th:tt the opinions of our people on the subject should be definitely ascertained without delay, and prompt measures taken to secure to ourselves the benefits of tlio project. There can be no risk in entering zealously into the move ment, for, independent of its general advantage to onr town and its vicinity in the transmission of intelligence of all kinds, it would, as a mere matter of investment, probably prove a very profitable stock,and no loss and great benefit would be derived from such a disposal of capital. Since penning the above, wc learn that, at the suggestion of some of our leading business-men, a ppublic meeting will be held in the Town Hall, on Satur day evening next, at the ringing of the bell, to make arrangements to Lave the Telegraph extended thro' this place.

Election Of Judges. I If tie Editors of the Schuylkill IlayeJ " . Mip will turn to the recently adopted Amendment to the Constitution, they will, " m "v perceive that their excellent suggestion j jgy-Thc new Methodist Chapel in Sc with regard to having " a Judicial election j Jjnsgrovc is to be dedicated on Sunday, day and a Political election day; separate, tnc o4tn inst., when Rev. Dr. Pixk will and distinct from each other, is forestalled and nulnhed by the terms ol tne Amend ..... . . . . - ment itself; which requires the Jint elec tion for Judges to be held on the day of the ijinernl fiction; which will be on the second Tuesday of October, 1851. AVc considered this arrangement unfor- tunate from the first, but it is now the or-1 ganic law, and the legislature has no con-! trol over it, except as to tulmqw Ht J udi cial elections. Too much care and circum spection certainly can not be used in making choice of the Judicial officers of the Commonwealth; and the action of the peopls should be removed as far as possi ble from the atmosphere and intrigues of party politics. On this account the Amend ment itself needs amendment, but as that is impossible at present, double precautions should be taken in the nomination of can didates ; and if State or county conventions are held, they should be called for that purpose exclusively, and kept free from the excitement of political strife. Partisan nominations will no doubt be made, but even then the capacity, lcaruing aud in tegrity of the candidates should be their only passport to popular favor. Homoeopathy. The London correspondent of the Thil adelt'hia Bulletin, writes under date of Sept. 11th that Dr. Tcssier, a physician of the Hotel Dieu, a great hospital in Pi-.ris, has been for several years past si lently testing the claims of Honneopathy in his hospital practice, and has now come out decidedly in its favor; having re nounced all other practice in his wards for the space of two ye.irs ' He selected Pneumonia (pleurisy), a disease frequent, acute, serious, whose symptoms are marked and not easily mistaken, as the subject of his first experiment with the method of Hahnemann. Having learned the spirit of the formula $im!liii aimiilits ciirtintur, it remained to satisfy him.-elf as to the action of remedies in iufiuitcssimal doses. To this experiment he devote 1 six months of clinical experiment with complete suc cess. It then remained for him to teat the therapeutic value of the new method. He gradually abandoned the practice of bleeding in the treatment of this disease, aud decided finally to bleed no more at ail, and to have recourse entirely to the " Ho moeopathic remedies." Dr. Tessier's pub lished experience concludes with the state ment that " for two years but one patient has died. Two others who died, were re ceived when already in the agonies of death. Since this time I have employed the same treatment iu a great number of cases of Pncumouia, and my first fears have disappeared. I say no more. Facts speak the rest." Csgr-President Fillmore has avowed his determination to sustain the officers of the law in carrying out the provisions of the Fugitive Slave Law, with the whole pow er of the Government, if necessary. He will treat Nullification in Massachusetts precisely the same as he would Nullifica tion in South Carolina. Kg" An attempt was made one nigh last week to rob the Bank of Danvers, Mass.

Mb. Eiiitob : As we chanced to consti- tute one of the audience at Jenny Ltnd s J rw concert in the Chestnut St. Theatre, Philadelphia, and as you have requested sorae account of the impression inailc upon the mind of one " from about home by the world-renowned songstress, we will endeavor to comply with your request. You have heard that it was an epoch in the history of music in Philadelphia, that the attending circumstances of that con cert will never be effaced from the minds of the fortunate hearers, &c., &c. But then all has not been told. High as the prices of scats were fixed, it was worth the sum paid io look upon the lovely laities collected there. The building was literal ly packed, but as the arrangements were admirable, there was no confusion, and as we bad obtained excellent seats, which were seeurcd early, we had ample oppor tunity to observe" the different parties a they entered and such a display of wv viug plumes, sparkling gems, and smiling countenances, it has never been our lot to look upon. Many of the ladies were very handsome, but as the moon among lesser planets, or the lily amid flowers, one among them appeared to us so beautiful, that our admiration almost expressed itself iu audible exclamations. Her every fea ture was faultlessly classical, while the pure, snowy skin, dark, liquid eyes, small, dimpled hand, and exquisitely moulded figure, astonished our unpractiecd eyes, and we were sufficiently interested iu watching the movements of this radiaut beauty, and in thinking what a pity that allowances must be made for gas light and full dress, until the commencement of th grand overture by the orchestra, and all eyes were attracted to the stage. Imme diately after, Signior Ballctti made his appearance. He is from Sardiuia, aud has the honor of accompanying Jenny Lind. He holds a high rank as au operatic artist, and enjoys groat celebrity as a singer; and we dare say, would rank still higher, were he not eclipsed by the inimitable songstress associated with him. His singing appeared to be appreciated, but still it was appareut that expectation was on tip-toe for the ap pearance of the far-famed Jenny and di rectly she appeared, led forward by Mr. Benedict. The welcome of the audience was deafening, which she acknowledged by several lowly and graceful inclinations. Her face was pale, and she was evidently laboring under deep though suppressed emotion. This feeling for a moment ap peared to effect her voice, but the spell was still there ; aud amid the death-like stillness which prevailed, she appeared to warble forth her whole soul in song. Her voice, you have again and again been told, is a genuine .soprano, reaching the extra high notes with an case which is marvel ous but language can not convey to you an idea of the volume of this voice ; now it would rise distinct and clear above the crash of forty instruments, and anon sink ! until the hearer bent to catch its lowest tones. You have also heard how exquis itely it plays in echo between the warblings of two flutes ; this was so well cxeeuted, that it was at times difficult to decide which was the voice and which the flutes. " The Herdsman's Song," however, op pears to be the greatest favorite with the American public, and was so rapturously encored, that she was induced to repeat it. Wc were among those who believed the public expectation had been raised too high, and anticipated disappointment. While listening, our only regret was that those heavenly strains must be so evanes cent ; even as they rose and fell upon the car, it was mournful to think they were lost, and lost for aye ; for although the tunc may be repeated, the self-same sounds will never, never be recalled. Your lady readers will doubtless like to hear something of Mad'lle Lind's personal appearance. Wc have not, with the ex ception of her portrait in Barnum's Mu seum, seen a picture which we think re sembles bcr. Her complexion is not clear, nor are her features regular, yet she is pretty, and it is the simplicity of her man ners, with tho charm which innocence and goodness gives to a countenance, which renders her so; "-N'orcouldtlicliglitordiamonilsntafce her took more fidr." Yet she was elegantly dressed ; her robe was some gnssanicr-likc material, embroi dered in deep points with crimson, blue, and silver; a few flower, were in her hair, while her neck and anus were decorated with flashing jewels. ' Queen Victoria pre sented her when in England with a night ingale formed entirely of precious stones, whieh Jenny sometimes wears in her hair. One of the Princes Boyal also sent her a golden goblet filled with ants' eggs, (said to be the food of tho nightingale,) so that her musical talent would appear te be as highly appreciated there as with ns. On our return, we bad the mournful satisfaction of being in the car to which a short car draped in the livery of woe, and containing all that remained of the Hero of Bucna Vista, was attached. Iberc was a gentleman in company who, from his resemblance to a portrait in Ifcirnuin's Museum, wo supposed to be Col. Bln, who was conveying the vanquished victor s dust to a final sepulchre among his kindred in Kentucky. - To what solemn reflections did this incident give rise! Here was one who hat! been mighty among men ; all that he had ever dreamed of power and honor had been his, with the warm homage of hearts whose praise is the conqueror's uicucst mced . an(j yet t this tune, what . it to tn q man, "that tin lie trumpet blast of Fame has carried thy name to the funr nMMi-tcrs i if the dolio ?
