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-

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. Jotix Tt'FTS.

will Le found on the first page of this
paper, to which we wish to call the parti

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. A
full attendence is desirable.

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

will treat Nullification in Massachusetts

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

The steamship Alabama arrived here
yesterday afternoon, bringing dates from
San Francisco to the 17th of September,
being two days later than those brought
by the C resent City, at New York. There
has been another terrible conflagration at
San Francisco, by which one hundred
buildings mere destroyed. Preparations
were to be made at once, however, for
moving ihc rubi-.li and erecting m.'ie sub
stantial buildings. The financial crisis
still excited much remark, but it was
thought the worst Jwas over.
From the mines there is little to add to
the intelligence brought by the Pacific.
The accounts are somewhat contradictory,
but still of a ftvorable character. New
liiscnverica Mere being made daily. The
ruiny season was about commencing.
The passengers by the Alabama have
considerable cold with them.
Awful Death r a Child-. Mrs.
Scheuek a widow, living some live miles
beyond Montgomery, in this county, had
her cl.ild, a little girl just able to walk, at
tacked by a big bull dog. The dog seized
the child by Ihe throat, and the more be
was Kiunded to make him let go, the hard
er he held on. The sople broke the dog's
back, and after inserting a lever into his
mouth, pried his jaws open and released
I the sufferer, but not till her throat, was
mangled so that pieces hung loose. No
hopes of the child's recovery were enter
tained at last accounts; the pjiysicians de
clared il pas', help it is dead ere this.

between the genuine and1 spurious i very
trifling, both l.emg of the name curcumfer'

most beautifully executed so as to render it
