I septlO JAMES McVAY T he R oad to P oor F arming —1. Invest all your money in land and run in debt for more. 2 Hire money to stock your farm. 3. Have no faith in your business, and be ever ready to Sell out. 4. Buy mean cows, spavined horse», poor oxeu and cbenp tools. 5. Feed pofcr hay and mouldy coro st.ilk exclusively, in order to keep your stock turne ; fitry cattle are ter ribly hard on nckety wagons and piows. 6. Use the oil of hickory freely whenever your oxen need strength ; it is cheaper than hay or meal, and keeps the hair lively, aud also pounds mi all the giubs. 7. Select such calves for stock as the butchers stiuu—beauties of runts, r.iiin in the hams, and potbellied ; but lie sure and keep their blood thin by scanty herbage : animals are the safest to breed from that have not the •itrenjrtii to herd 8. Be cautions about manufactur ing manure ; it. makes the fields look black and mournful about planting time ; besides it i? a deal of work to haul it. 0 Never waste time by setting out fiuit and tthaiie trees ; fruit and leaves :iit:ing »round a pi n-e are unhealthy. S lavery in B razil —Some time ago an association was formed, with I uoiuruittees in Paris and London, to i promote the universal abolition of ■lavery. The first cure of the cotn niftce- vnis to send addresses to the ■'/Hiperor of Brnzi! and the Queen of nti, the sovereigns of the only two : 'Uut ric.s that yet have slaves. That Idressed to the former potentate has > m answered by ^is Imperial Majes | y 's Minister for Foreign Affairs. I flu- reply states that the personal de | ire of the Emperor and ttie tendency >f public opinion in Brazil are equally m lavor of abolition, and says: "The mancipation of the slaves, a ncces <ry cons, quence of the abolition of trie slave trade, is now only a questfou ■f f'.riu and of opportunity." The Minister promises that whenever the unhappy circumstances in which the country now is shall permit, the Bra dili m Government will consider as an ject of the highest importance "the realization of that, which the spirit of . ihristianity has long demanded from the civilized world." tGP"Tbe breastplate of the Jewish high priest as commanded by Moses, was to be four squares, and then to e divided into four twelve squares to !e*ignaiti the twelve tribes of Israel. 1-rorn this the word rnosmc was de uv<;d as a term of art, being a series of congregate or email squares of di> f'ertint colored stones applicable to the formation of any tesselated fi.,uie.
