We bad been playing all the evening at ribist. Our stake had been gold aints, *and twenty on the rubber. Masey,, ho is a!. ways lucky, had wonm live surcease bumpers. which lent a well satisned smile to his coulnen ance, and made us, the losers, look anythinc but pleased, wheu he suddenly changed coun. tenau.ce, and hesitated to play ; this the more surprised us. since be wasone that seldom pun. dared, being so perfe'ly master of 'be game1 that hedeeted long consideration superfluus. 'Play away, Mazey; what are you about I'I mlpatiently demanded Churchill, one of the, must impetuous youths that ever wore the uni.I Srm of a budy guard. 'Hush,' repited Masey, in a tone which thril. led through us, at the same time turning deadly Pl* S"Are you unwell ' said another about to start/ up, for be bsliesed our friend had suddenly been taken ill. 'Forthe love of peace, sit quiet!' rejoined thel other, in a tone denoting extreme tear of pain,, and he laid dowa his cards. If you value my life, move not.' 'Wh~a can be mean i-has he taken leave of his senses L' demanded Churchill, appealing to himself. Dua't start--don't move, I tell you !' in a sit of wbisper I never fget, uttered Maley. --if you make a suddea n mtio, I u, a deara marIl' We exchanged looks. He continued, 'rermain quiet and a!1 may be weil. IL hLe a Couba Ca. polla around my jeg.' Our hast imltse was to draw back oun chair., but an appealing look from the vi.:timt induced u to remain, aitbough we were aware that should the reptuie transfer but one fold. and attach himself to any of the party, that i,' dvideual might already be counted as a detad man, so fatal is the bite of the deadly muoster. Tuor .uasey was dressed as many o.d resi dents still dress in lidia-namely in blreeches sud silk stockings; he therctore more lplarul3 hk the umovemenut of the soak-. His counten aone assumed a livid hue; the words se.seed to leave his oouth without that feature alt'riang its position, so rigid was his look, so fraui was be led the slightest movemneut should a:arm the serpent.and hasten the lta bite.

It is as nute itious as the best ,.f nouthen grasses, is *asier madle, and wh-n well manged. yields a greater quantity of bay than any other grass yet we annually see the wharvei of our cu, jmercial cities lined with bundles of pressed ha) i fron the Nnth and West, whence it finds nct way to all the livery stablles, and many a far. mer' fidderless rack. Is it not strange that we labo so hard to externinate a better grass. thant we can possilily introduce from ana other ciitsate I It is adapt.d by nature to our stuck, and thre only thing that nature has not taught about it is. how to save it as to presetve its nu tritious qualities in its dry state. This must be done by the industry and genius of man. I have seen luads ofcrab-grass in the maaket. that was pulled by bauld instead of being cut, having a good portion of roots and eatth mixed with it. It was pu.led when the seed .sai at maturity. and the teal'and stem had lost half their j!ice. 1o wcud..L that , horse would lay ha, k his ears. ada couw turn up her nose, at such tasteless lscentless food. Grass to be goxd. and to re rtam all its aroma, should be cut in its first ilflo re-ceuce, and as tauch as p.ssibe, dried in the shade. The foul;:wing method of cutting, cur tug and raising hay. tromt the Germantown Tel ,egraph is lull uo rich instruction. Larmers, try it with your crab-gra-ss and you will buy no more utthern hay. CL.o.sa-- MAle. HAr.-Clover, when in. tended ter hay, should be cut early. Nothing is gained by permitting it to stand. When cut in ats green state and properly cured, it tmakes an e.ceellant food fr horses, sheep and young stluck generally ; but it is greatly lessened in value by lung standing. It should he cut when in bloom or at the latest, before the seed has ripened. In England, from which country we may de. rise many and valuable le-tsuns in practical agri. culture, Clover isaeldom or never spread as with us, the nore judicious farmers of that cou!. try believing it far better and more ccnomacal, ot the whole, to cure it in the cock, than to ei. pose it by spreading, to the wasting influence l.f the sun and winds. Most persons are aware tihat herbs intended for medical -turpose3 ate comparativelv of little va:ue unless cured in the !shade. "1 atthe sun al,.itacts much ofthe good. uess fone tbiL, species thay, wizen exposed for anIy cunsiderabie length t1f time, is bevound a lduubt.

Its a matter of -onuusderable importance, and sltou.d be guarded against hy all means possible to .e deV..ed.T We ptrrlb mowing our hay when the air ijs clear, say fro.m eight to eleten o'clock, after thel dew tas ditppea.ed. and the ground becomes!i warm, we then leave it in the ;warth until thei appruach of night, when it is cal etud|y turned, I ly which a !;'es umdried surl~ce is pre Hnted to,, the night demw, and the wilted and comlmratlel) dried postioun secured b) being turned under.i In this cmndiiiou it remains sill the afternoon olt the unet day, when, it the weather be lair, it is, pitched into .grass cocks" and left to make. Care hbowever is essential in constructing the cocks, a. when too bulky the grasses will beatl and tbecome muly, which greatly detracts from jthe vaue of the hay. A grass cock ought er-. er to contain more than eighty or a hundred pounds of uemade or partially wiled grassw and must n01 be forwed too compactly, or be too mcuch consolidated by pressure to cause liability so tferment or heat. A caretl and practical workman willpitch the grass into oocks much better and with tr gtaster despatch, if the crop be au average one, als it can he raked and cucked to the ueual way. As soon an the bay is thorouglly made, it should be got in withuti pymrading, and i. dry weatuer. A Cuutous Casa or Su.Ueas..Some time ago a little child o Mr. Loutbrop, at the toot o. udbury street, was playing wita a pair of bi. jawDve shlu, round in tur.i, and each fallyas large as tb. eighth o a dollar, when one ol them dimppeared, aid nothing could tbe l£ud oit.

TAYLOR to tohe welconme tendered him by the citizens of West.i moreland county, Pa.: My kind friends and respected fellow.citizens,! I am unised to plubhlic speaking,-my training' has been in a diflfrent department of life, and I! am sure therefore the necessary indulgence will be made by this great a-setmblage. But if 1. possessed the most gifted power of eloquence, II could not express in words the deep and alt. ding gratitude which I feel tor the Ameriran ipeople. They have crow,ned me with praise he. yond my deserving; and unworthy as I am, they ' have elected me to the tirst office in the wo, ld in point of moral and political dignity. In the hattles where I bore command, I was sustained! by the American soldiers and volunteers, admi. rable in all the qualities which ensure success.' Where they have confidence in their comman.' der, they have but two thoughts-"Our country,' and victory in her cause." With such soldiers I fl.ught, and with sthb ,soldiers what could I do'; but conquer-let them have the rneed rnfpraise.l I was not deserving ofthe great office I now, fill. I was not a voluntary candidate, but forced' and cont,rained hiv imulses ahibh I could nutsI resist. But since the desire of the people has!' placed me there, my anxious thought, my untir tng exertions will be to promote the peace, lib. erty, prosperity, and happiness of the nation.i You all know that I was not disciplined to puli. tics. Forty years of my life were spent in the!' service of my country. Toil, privations, anxiety' and care were the elements of my education. During that time. I served my beloved country with all my energies in ohedience to her laws. That part of my lite to which I look back with the greatest pleasure is when I was protecting the innocent inhabitants of the frontier, the women and children, from the tomahawk and scalping. knife of the savages. I hope my motives will not he misunderstood, for making his journey. I wish to see the great manufacturing establishments of the middle and northern States, to witn.ess their flourishing and pro-perous husbandry; to ascertain their wants and wishes, and to see my kind friends'and their beau:iful country. I will give all my sympathy to the friends of' liberty ecerywhere, now struggling for liberty ; ibut my great care will ie to preserve the peace of the country, and to avoid entangling alliances Iwith ay , pursuing the example of Washin:ton. I And nJo my friends, I again return you my grateful thanks for the enthusiastic reception I; Shave received. 1 lure to meet my fellow cii zens face to face, and to shake their honest, hands, especially the gray.headed patriarchs, who were the patriots of other days-and the ladies, God hless them, they have everywhere cheered my way with their smiles. God bless you all. The laelligencer conclutles its account of the enthusiastic welcome by saying- The president was dressed in a plain suit of black cloth; but in nothig differing either in drePss or manner fromn the great b',dv of his fel) 1:,w citizens, wino, with prptound feelings of re.' Igard, thronged around him as be pa.,ed through this country. The cmrn:nna remark among the 'armers was -"Why ! he is just like one ofaour. .elves-this is the right kind of a President - there is no ostentation about him, he mingle' with, and cumrers.:s froely with all; he makes every one feel perfectly at home in his company."' Ccna.-This island is 624 miles in extreme length, with a width var)ing from 22 to 117 miles. and covers an area of 87,000 square miles, being about the size ot the Otate of Maine. It contains a population, at the present time, of 1,400,000; of which about 681,000 are whites, 190 000 are tree colored, and 00,U000 slaves. Its imports in 1847 were 832,3d9,l 19, of which $7,049 975 were from the United States, Its exorts during the same period were $27,998,. 770, of which $12,394,876 were to the United States. In 1847 the number of arrivals, at its ports, wac 3,740, and the number of clerannes 3,346. Its principal harbors are the finest is the world. 'The amount of Americ.p tonnage emplo)ed in the trade with Cuba is 476,773 tons. It has 195 miles of railroad completed and in successdul operation, and 61 miles in course ofcoastruction. t is well watered by umaruses rivers, and its surface, exept in the "el portion of the island, diversified with idnstains.

[CoxxuNICATED.J To the Editors of the Bec : In comnunicatiag to you the fact of General; Walker having been an Adams man in 1824.; and subsequently a supporter of C l. Brent, I did so simply to correct a statement which I knew to be :alse, and noIt that I attached an, importance to the period at whi h b enerai Walker changed his political opinions. In my opinion he was currectly reported, and I have no tfith in the pretended cursec-ian in the Delta of the 9th ultimo. Ifhe was not pro. perly reported, why remain silent t.r lilty jays and until one of his old parishoners called at. [tenitiint to the want of truth in the salretent that "bhe had benu-a Demtncrat for so or 40 years i" The Democracy have been deceived is to; the consistency and Democracy of Gen. Walk.1 er. As you have fully exposed the fallacies o4 tie Delta's article, headed "Political Consis'e:ay,'1 it is unn-cessary Ilr me to attempt it. As the Editor ofuihe Delta seems so thor:ugh. ly versed in the hirturv of General Walker. perhaps he will indu.ge us with another article. and tell us how many Bank Charters General IWalker has voted for-how much money he' has borrowed forn State Banks-bow much punctuaiity hbe has displayed in meeting his in. debtedness to Banks-how much he was in debted to Banks in 1842, and whether he wasi actuated by a personal motive when urging the1 passage, and toting for e Bank bill of 1N42, which ,ill forced the BAnks to accord him an additional term of six years on his matured lia. bilities ! These are matters of sufficient importance to justify an enquiry on his part, and to give him! an opportunity of exhibiting again how totally. disinterested and neutral is his course in the' present canvass ; and at the same time he can i enlighten us on subjects as complicated as the' state of parties in 1.s24-28. RAPIDES. A LcTrunt oN THa E.UHA.~T. i Ladies and Gentlemen ! Allow me, this 0 evening to' introduce an animal called the El-'s ephaut. He is the greatest of all tread-mill an.i imals that helps to keep theb world in mrtin - Among the Anglo-Saxuns, he is known only! C by the nasme of Elephant, but with all his bar.0 barous and half civilized nations he is unani. rously dubbed the bUllipMnrt. He is about the' size of a two year old oniitus, and in color ap proaches as near to a black as he possibly cana without infringemeut. To look at him nut too severely one naturally supposes him to be a'I small mountaih of India rubber, or a huge comn. position of glue and m4lasses. Tne Elephant is one ol the inhabitants of the East Indies, but has omen met with in variused pqrts of Mexico, and is frequently ween in the great city of New York. It has teoen asserted upon both righteous and profane authority, thatl -he is indigenious to the "Jtggins" uof Cliltrmia 1-however. the esseriion, as yet goes a beg. 'ging fr colirrmation. It is my private upiniaa tho.ugh, that the animal exhibits himself to ellers in all parts of the world, only they tain a aonstrous reluctance to contras fthe He always carries his trunk with bhi wher ever be gues, but never keeps a)thi4 in it, not even a change of shirts.

It is told ofJohn Bailes, who, lived to the age of one hundred andt.renty. eight, that his ul,,d t;r the mu.t part consisted of brown bread and cheese, and his drink water anrd milk. He had buried the town of North. amuton twenty times over, excepting three or tour ; and it is said strong drink killed them all. ý ater natnitestly is :he natural beverage of all animals; whole nations, as the 1Mahometans and the HindosE, use it alone as a beverage; and, unlike otherdrink, it will not sate the ap petite. but the contrary ; indeed, it was observ ed by llypanarates, above two :housand years -ago that water drinkers had generally keenl ap petites. It is a fluid that requ;res no digestion. uor it is not neeesary that it .hbuld undergo any changes ; it is the natural menstruwnf that holds in solution both what is essentia! for the healthy ltunctions of the b.ody, and whlat bas become a refuse, after serving its destined lffice and inten tioe in the anianal kingdom. Water therefore. Itro its congenial qualities, can never much disturb the sy.stem ; and when it does, it is speed. ily espeded by its natural outlets, the skin and kldne's. It is told ut'Lord Ilealhrield, so well knl,w; for his hady habits uo discipline and watchsliness, that his food was vegetable and his dritk water, never indulging h;mseit in an imal fo.d or wine. And Sir John Sinclair, in his wore on la'ngevity, sa s. in his accunt of Nlary Campbell, then aged one hundred and five. that she preferred water to ,any other drink.--Ez. IMPORTANCE OF FLANNEL.

My first trials were on fowls and legs of mutton ; and which, though the month of July, and the thermometer ranging 94 in the shade, succeeded so much to my satisfection that I forwarded some to Eng land; and have now the lieasure to send for the Society's informatios and inspection a bhuma hand. prepared foul years since by my brother, Cape Tbholsa iagnold. The best Infor.sed among the Arabs think that large quantites of campl.r myrrh, a oes and Ifrankincense were these specimens will, however, prove that such were by no means necessary, as the tar, applied alone, penetrates and discolors the bone; tar is obtained from the branches of a small tree or shrub, exposed to a considerable degree of heat, and found in most parts of Syria ad Ara bia Felix."
