H ome M adb I ok .—The New Or. leans Bulletin furnishes the following interesting "refrigerativé" to its read* ers: We paid a visit a few days since to the buildings of the Louisiana lee Manufacturing Company, in Jeffersoo. These works are, perhaps, the great* est triumph of modern science. You may stand in the sun, with the per* spiration pouring from your forehead, a silk umbrella io your hand, perhaps, to protect you against the heat, and at the same time look upon ice and snow forming within twenty feet of you the same as though you were standing in a valley and looking at the snow clad top of a mountain. By it chemical process, too lengthy and too scientific to describe to the general reader, a large baBin of water strongly impregnated with salt, to keep it from freezing, is deprived of its caloric, and reduced to n temper* »turn below the freezing point. Ioto this basin are inserted cases made of tin, air and water-tight at the bottom and sides, filled with water, them cases nre covered on top, and in leSB than two minuteB the water inside is frozen, and you may take out a cake of ice, nome three inches thick, twelve incheB wide and three inches long. The rapidity with which the water ie congealed gives'tbe ice a milky appearance, and hence sorbe persons have been led to believe that the ice contained ammonia, and was not pure. The truth is that the water used for the manufacture of this ice ie Mississippi River water, pumped a long distance from shore, and then distilled, hence the purest kind of water, and as it does not in any way mix with the water impregnated with salt and to a limited degree with ammonia, the ice manufactured is of the purest kind imaginable. We are indebted to the Superintendent, Mr. Labarre, for courtesies in show ing us over the extensive works, Aoine 240 by .00 feet, and explaining to us the moduB operandi. There are now two machines iti operation :apable of making each twelve tons if ice per day, aud four more ma chines are in process of erection. The company can now furnish ice at he rate of three fourths of a cent per pound, and if the people will only patronize«) the establishment, this price can be reduced to one-half cent per pound. Thb Widow Cabochard . —Tt is wel l known that at the Père la Chaise Cemetery, near Paris, there stands in a conspicuous position, a 'splendid monument to Pierre Cabochard, gro cer, with a pathetio inscription, which closes thus : »«'His inconsolable widow dedicates this monument to his memory, and continues tho sanu) business at the old stand, 107 Rtie Moufl'etard." Now a Parisian paper relates that a short time ago a gentleman, who had noticed tho above inscription, was led by curiosity to call at the address in dicated. Having expressed his de sire to see the Widow Cabochard, he wits immediately ushered into the presence of a fashionably dressed and full bearded roan, who asked him what was the object of his visit. "I come to Bee the widow Cabo chard, sir." "Well sir, here she is." "I beg pardon, but I wish to see the lady in person." "Sir, I am the Widow Cabochard." "I don't exactly understand you. I allude to the relict of the late Pierre Cabochard, whose monument I saw yesterday at the Père la Chaise." "I see, I see," was the smiling re joiner. "Allow mo to inform you that Pierre Caboobard is a myth, and therefore never had a wife. The tomb you admirrd cost me a good deal of money, ând although no one is buried there, it proves a firstrate advertise ment, and I have had no cause to re gret the expense. Now, sir, what can,I sell you in the way of groceries?" SPA citizen of Massachusetts died recently aged eighty-eight years and seven months, having been a rigid temperance man for over forty years. A few days before his death he was advised by bis physician to nse a little brandy as a stimulant, necessary to support life, but de clined doing so, lest he "might ac quire a fondness for liquor."
