It may well be conceived that the earth is not so green as when the five generations of men walked upon it, nor do the lights of Heaven now shine npo'h it with a splendor so refulgent; but of these pictures the colors are as fresh, the beauty as resplendent, as when they were newly produced. This is truly sur prising, especially when compared with the ruin which has fallen on other things which seemed destined to erjoy a more lengthened existence. "All flesh is grass, and all the goodliness thereof is as the flower of the field." When these words were spoken, the broad walls of Babylon still stood; the banks of the Tigris and the Nile were adorned with cities, whose greatness even then was of ancient days; Greece and Rome were just starting, young and vigorous, in their career, and no symptoms of decay or ruin were visi ble on the earth; but now look around and survey the world, and see whether Time Las not ratified the doom pronounced by the prophet on all terrestrial glory. What is the earth but a widn burial ground of cities, na tions and empires? Where now are the temples of Egypt? They are crushed and gone not a footfall is now heard in the once populous No and even the pyramids of that land are slowly sinking into the earth, as if they were unwilling to be longer a burden on its soil, or to expose their im mense but useless bulk to the eyes of men. Tadmor erects, in the midst of her sands, a few broken columns all that time, and the ravages of barbarous nations, have left her of her many princely splendors. The Abolitionists ol the North and the Secessionist- ol the .South are the Cause of the War." This is a very common phrase among the Democratic speakers and writers of the North; and the Abolition ior Republican papers, writers and speakers denounce such language as disloyal and dangerous, and only emanating from sympathizers with Jeff. Davis. If the first Is illogical the second is false, and hence nothing is settled by this discus sion or charges back and forth. We admit the language used by the Democrats is not strictly correct, nor is it good logic. So far the Republicans have reason to object to it. Secessionism is not the cause of the war, but the effect of Abolitionism. Abolitionism produced Secessionism, and secessionism was the act of war not the cause. Had Abolitionism been defeated Secession would cot have taken place, and war would never occurred. Therefore Abolitionism is the origin of this war and the freedom of the slaves being the purpose of Abolitionism, it will be satis fied with nothing else, and to that end it has been precipitated by the same faction and influences which originated the sectional conflict. The great middle mass North and South who stood for years between the con tending extremes, are the real sufferers in this conflict so far, though in the end the ex tremes will pay the penalty. Columbus (O.) Crisis; From tho Columbus Crisis. "Is not Uiis a Veatli Blow to the Hope ol" Union." A most intelligent friend writing us from Pennsylvania, enclosing money for TJie Crisis, adds: "We have just receive.! the President's Confis cation proclamation. My (iod! What next? 'The sow has returned to her wallow." Is not this a death-blow to tho hope of unionJ" We have no doubt that this Proclamation seals the fate of this Union as it was and the Constitution as it is. In fact, this is the avowed purpose of tho radical conspirat ors who drove the President to issue it. Greeley openlv avows it. and declares tnai "tho Union AS'lT SHOULD BE will date from the day of its consummation." The Un ion "as it sJwuld be" in the eyes of thesa abolition devils in white cravats, is a very different Union from that which our fathers gave ns, and which our Democratic soldiers entered the army to fight for. The "glori ous flag," with its "stars and stripes," of which we have heard so much for the last year and a half, now flutters, torn and tat tered, the bewilderment of the beholder and the faded monument of past glories. The time is brief when we shall have a Dictator Pboclaimed, for this Proclama tion can never be carried out except under the iron rule of the worst kind of despotism. This is the programme and all men may as well be prepared to meet it first as last. Bread has just been made from corn 1800 years old, found at Pompeii. Moreover it is said that a batch of eighty-ode loaves from a Pompeiian oven, oddly preserved from the heat of the lava by a thick coating of ashes, has also been discovered in the re cent explorations of the ruins. fc5A new variety of flying fish was re cently caught about one hundred and twenty miles from Melbourne in Australia. It was seventeen inches long and the back had a beautiful rose color. The flappers or wings was disproportionately large, variegated ir regular spots. Important to the People of the North west. From the Columbus Ohio Crisis. Cincinnati, Sept. 25, 1862. As we have now, if reports be reliable, achieved a brilliant and decisive victorv in the bloodiest and hardest fought battles of the war, it becomes us, as reasonable men, to determine what use we shall make of its influence. Shall we use it for the purpose of acquiring more recruits for further slaugh ter; or shall we, as sensible men, as victors, apply it to the attainment of a just and honorable peace? This latter is the object of all iust wars, and should never be neglect ed when opportunities are presented.. There I are many reasons why this subiect should be attentively considered. Tho war has al ready assumed gigantic proportions has deluged the country with blood, and in its continuance threatens the land with desola tion. This is not all, but the ostensible ob ject for which the war was originally waged has proved an entire failure. Union by war is not now within the range of possibility. While there was a Union sentiment in the South, there was a probability of its being lifted up by the assistance of Northern arms, and so made superior to the forces which op posed it. But now the South is well known to be a unit, and resolutely determined on separation. Under these circumstances, Un ion, by war, is an impossibility. Conquest, however, which rests in tha superiority of forces, may still be attainable, but if attain ed would not be worth the millionth part of the blood and treasure required far its ac quisition. Union and conquest are very different things. One exists in assent, the other in subjugation; one is by agreement, tho other bv force; one is the relation of equals, the other of conquerors and conquered ; one cofe through amity, the other through a clash ofjtioni,t in their vjsj0riary ideas of freedom, arms; and one engenders sociability, while abolished slavery in their American poises- the other engenders hste. We do not, j sion3. Soon after these events, tho cotton therefore if we bo wise, want conquest, for iu was invented, and other improvements it would be alike injurious to tho conqu?rors ! fnaJo in the manufacture of cotton fabrics, and the conquered. Y hat then do we want? j Theso created a demand for tha Southern We want the unity of Jvorth and South, staple. But no demand could induce the to swell the proportions of our National ; freerl neroes of tho West Indies to be ex strength, and their relations so conditioned . tes;Vo producers. They, like their pro as to give w the benefits of a remunerative j el)itors in Africa, preferred lying down in commerce. These two ends a'tained, it is tne sl)ule As a C0D3equence. tha world hard to see how sensible men can want any- i,.,. donnnnt. nn th Klavn.hnl.lin,, thin; else. But madmen may want blood.! These euds, we think, may now, under a judicious management of conditions as they now exist, be acquired and secured in such a way as to redound alike to the interests of both North and South. 0Uth. But they will never; be attained by war. We may destroy the i South, burn her cities, pillage her homes, and murder her people, but in doin so we and particularly wo of the Northwestern States, win, of necessity, destroy ourselves. So intimately are tho South and West con nected, that tho destruction of the one fol lows the destruction of the other as inevit able. To elucidate this point, let us refer to a few plain statistical facts. Both sec tions are agricultural, and depend alike upon agricultural results. Take, then, the agri cultural exports of tho nation for any given year preceding tho war, and they will show in a light which tho most artful sophistry cannot bewilder, tho absolute dependence of one section upon the other. Take the year 1859, tha year preceding the yearof our late Presidential election, which struck down the amity of Northern and Southern relations. In that year the agricultural exports of the whole nation amounted, in round numbers, to the sum of $199,000,000. Of this sum SIGI.000,000 alone were cotton, and $21, 000. COO tobacco, leaving but $18,003,000 of all other agricultural productions. All the cotton was of Southern growth, and very near all the tobacco. So near was the to bacco all Southern, that by giving the cereals ' and provisions of the Border Slave States, and the rice of the Southern to the Northern States, we may, for calculation, assume that these two great staples are wholly Southern. These two aggregated, gives us thejoint sum of $182,000,000, and present it as so much Southern export, standing against the meagre sum of $1S,000,000 of Northern growth. Tho contrast is overwhelming, and were there not a commercial relation to overcome this inequality tbe Southern States would be exorbitantly rich, and the Northwest be miserably poor. But we have an interior commerce not estimated in the exports of the nation. Of this interior, commerce Cin cinnati alone, in the year above assumed as the basis of these calculations, exported the round snm of $117,000,000. These figures show how small a sum, SIS.OOO.ODO, our whole Northern exterior agricultural export, is of our Northwestern resources. Pitts burg, Cleveland, Toledo, Detroit, Chicago, St. Louis, and Louisville, are also important points of shipment and, in the a?gregate, no doubt, double or treble tho exports of Cin cinnati. Wero wo deprived of our inland com merce and confined to an export of eighteen millions a year, our fields would grow up in brambles and our cities become the abode of owls. But the commercial unity of North and South is our vitality. By our internal commerce the productions of these two great sections are intermingled, and in their com bination become a national export. The Southern planter finds his labor more remunerative in the growth of cotton, conse quently, he turns bis attention exclusively to its production, and, by so doing, allows the Northwestern farmer to raise his bread. By tbis operatidfi our corn, wheat and pro visions which feed the slave while he labors in the growth of the Southern staple, go into the bale of cotton, and in that form and character are exported to Europe, from whence gold is returned in exchange, to nourish the Northwestern corn, wheat, oats, bay and barley fields, as well as the cotton fields of the South. When the planter re ceives his money for one crop, he expends it for Northwestern provisions, with which to feed his negroes while they are raising another. Had it not been for the advantages thus given us, of a rich and profitable Southern market, the Northwest would still be a wilderness should it lose this richest of its markets, It must greatly diminish in its im portance. The European market might, probably, in some way be improved. But as experience has shown U3, that the Baltic and Black seas in three years out of four can furnish bread stuffs to Western Eu rope cheaper than they can be furnished by us, our prosperity never can be restored through. that source of commerce. It is thus plain that the loss of the South ern market must be the loss of the North western's prosperity. It we abandon tbe idea of raisins up a Union sentiment in the Southern States, and rely upon conquest and subjugation, then, were these ends possible, we would be no nearer than we now aro to our lost advan tages, for should the Southern people be conquered, there would remain in them a spirit of hatred, which to say the least of consequences, would make them the grow ers of their own food; and to destroy or an nihilate them an idea that we can scarcely pen without a shudder, at the very thought of having men anion; us, base enough to en tertain it would be to destroy the whole Southern market, for dead men need no provisions. When the turf has once closed upon them, and the night of desolation set tled on their once happy homes, all their earthly wants are then supplied. To destroy the institution of slavery, by breaking the relation of slave and master, would be as disastrous as annihiliation, for free negroes, unsupported by white men, are drones on the commercial world. Their conception of liberty are exemptions from labor, conditions which grow no cotton, nor in any other way produce material wealth. Freed negroes could, it is true, consume our provisious, but our wary merchants will be very careful not to sell to people who are unable to pay. The great prosperity of the Northwest has grown directly out of Slave labor, and tho lolly of England and France in regard to it. About thirty years a;jo those two na- f ,imor;, mm,; ,u 1 .--, creased tho price of cotton, as to induce the Southern planter to abandon all other pur suits, and, as we have above said, to rely on the Xorthwpstnrn farmer frr hi a nrnv i,:inna ITn ti 1 1840.

Ohio is now much the greater producer of that staple, unless the war has driven Tennessee back to her for mer productions. If so, and this change be common over the whole South, then the Northwest is tho greatest sufferer, for it is a change which has taught the Southern people to raise their ownbread.and no longer depend upon our staples. Tho demand, which the demand for cot ton, threw on tho Northwestern States for broad and provisions, sunt a fluol of pros perity over this entireNorthvvesfern country. A rich market was ifound at homo. This caused onr cities to raise and our forests and prairies to come, as if by magic, into cultivation. It was tho lover of all power, and tho inducement of all growth. The German, the Irishman, the Englishman, the Scotchman, the Frenchman and the Italian, co mo to our country to catch a portion of that golden flood which drifted through Southern cotton fields into the corn and wheat fields of tho Upper Mississippi Val ley. They come, no doubt, with various idealities, but they came because they saw but from what cause, they may not have knoVn a chance for bettering their condi ditions. They acquired lai.ds, built houses, in a word, grew rich, and while so growing, cursed slavery while they were fatteniug on its labors. In this wild career of contradic tions, they continued particularly the Ger mans until they became the fiercest in the Sreat effort now making to destroy the great cause of their prosperity. Few people, if any, have ever shown such blind stupidity. But we may save our6hafts for objects near er home. The foreigner, falsely educated in regard to American affairs, who has heard of negro slavery but never seen its workings, may indulge in wild and fancied specula tions. But when an American President, a citizen of the great Northwestern country, and a native of a slave holding community' bends to the fanatical lash and embarks with the power of a nation in the same sui cidal policy, modesty, at least, demands for bearance, in the blows aimed at lesser backs. A want of capacity may be an apology for public as for private men. But ignorance, even a blunder in a President, is worse than a crime. We have already exhausted the stores of tho nation. Three hundred thousand of our young men have already been sect to un timely graves, a debt of a thousand millions of dollars, in the short space of seventeen months, has been heaped upon us. laxes, duties, and excises, meet us in every thing we eat, drink, sell or buy, and now, while thus burdened and diminished, shall the war, which its friends admit to be a failure, in the object for which it was instituted, "to raise up a union spirit in the southern States," be continued to destroy the great source and only hope of Northwestern pros perity. For one we protest against it. If Union be no longer attainable every other object for which the war is waged, unless for self-defence, should be at!once abandon ed. America, which may some day be re quired to fight all Europe, should not be ex hausted by her own feuds. David Quinn. Rev. C. Billings Smith made a war speech the other day at Waterloo, and said he was in favor of four things, viz: emancipation, confiscation, extermination and damnation." These sentiments we uproriously applauded by the Republicans present. Independence (Iowa) Civilian. When men. by age. fail in sight and hear ing, they had better console themselves with thought that they have seen and heard quite enough, The Wandering J ew. This legend is the foundation of Croly's Salathiel, and we know not of how many other romances. Dr. J. O. Noyes has recent ly orought out a volume entitled, "1 be Bor der land of the Christian and the Turk," in which he gives, professedly, the literal ver sion as it exists among the Musselmen: A wild and terrible legend is that of the middle ages, which personified the Jewish nation by the traits of tbe Wandering Jew. It represents an old man with naked feet, uncovered bead, and long white beard, wan dering ceaselessly over the earth. His face is pale. A mark of blood is upon his fore head. His eyes burn like sapphir.es beneath their oblique lids. With an eagle-like nose and b'.ood-like eyes, squalid and harsh in his features, and clad in a coarse woolen gown, he ever pursues his interminable journey, speaking all languages and tra versing all lands knowing not the purposes of God concerning himself, and ever driven onward by a secret impulse, he is transport ed from place to place with the speed of the wind; and as the long centuries come suc cessively to a close, his old age renews itself with tho vigor of youth, in order that he may complete the weary round of ages. Iho people wonder as he hastens past. Once or twice only has he paused to tell bis story. He was of the Jewish nation; Alias uerus by name, and a shoemaker, by trade. Dwelling in Jerusalem, he perse cuted our Saviour, and was of those who cried "crucify him." The sentence of death having been pronounced, he ran to his house, before which Jesus was to pass on the way to Calvary. Taking his child in his arms, be stood at the door, with all his family to behold the procession. Our Sav iour, weighed down by the heavy burden of tho cross, loaned for a momont against the wall; and tho Jew, to manifest his zeal, cruelly struck the innocent one, and point ing to tho place of execution, bade him go on. Then Jesus, turning to the unfeeling child of Israel, said: "Thou refuseth rest to the son of God: I go, for it must needs be; but for thee there shall be no rest or repose until I return. Go forth on thy jourrey; leave thy own; tra verse mountains and seas pausing neither in the cities nor tbe deserts, nowhere not even in the tomb. As an example to the Universe, and bearing everywhere the heavy weight of my curse; much shalt thou long for death, thy deliverance, but shalt not die until tho day of judgment!" He assists at the crucifixion, and then goes forth a mys terious stranger, whose feet shall become familiar with lands. How, age after age, he longs for tho sweets of death, and the repose of the tomb! But in spite of death, ho must live on; his dust shall not mingle with that of his ancestors. He drags himself from a gloomy cavern of Mount Carmel, shaking the dust from the beard grown even to his knees. Nine grin ning skulls are before him. He seizes and hurls them from the top of the mountain, and thty go bounding down from rock. They are the skulls of his parents, of his wifo and six children, all of whom have boeu able to die; but he cannot, lie rushes into the flames of f alling Jerusalem , and at tempts to bury himself beneath the crumb ling ruins of Rome; but in vain. Flying from cities anil men, the wanderer seeks the solitary places of the earth. Passing beyond the region of verduro and of dashing torrents, his feet tread the seas of amethyst and opal. Above him aro oply peaks shrouded in mists and eternal snows. The daring eagle soars not so high. There are no sounds save tho cracking of the glaciers. Tha soul seems almost to touch the heavens above. There, surely the Wandering Jew shall resit! No. An Angel unsheaths a sword of flaming fire, and, lo! the wanderer beholds once more in the heavens tbe drama of the Crucifixion. Tho way from earth to heaven is storied with myriads of celestial being radiant with light. Before him are all the martyrs, and saints and sages who ever lived and died. For a moment he gazesupon this vision, then turns away, chased by the sword of flame and demons of frightful form. Again he wanders over the earth, ever with five pieces of copper in his pocket, ever with the mark of blood upon his fore head. Maddened. with the agony of life, he throws himself into the crater of iEtna, but the boiling liquid and sulphurous flames harm him not. The floods of lava vomit him forth, for his hour is not yet come. Embarking upon the sea, the wind raises its surface into mountain waves tbe vessel divides, and all perish save the Wandering Jew. Too light to sink in the ocean, its waves cast him upon the hated shore. He plunges into a hundred bloody conflicts without sword or shield. All in vain. The leaden balls rain harmlessly upon him; bat tle axes and scimeters glance from his charmed body. Where mounted squadrons fight with fury of demons, he casts himself under the feet of the horsemen, and is un harmed, so riveted are his soul and body to gether, lie says to Nero "Thou art drunk with'blood." To Christian and Musselman, "Thou art drunk with blood." They invent the most horrible tortures for his punish ment, vet injure him not. Leaving in his vain pursuit of death, the lands that throb with life and industry, the Wandering Jew threads the solitary jungles of the tropics. He walks in poisoned air. Fierce serpents sports around him, but none dare venture to harm. And thus be wanders, "Traversing mountains and sea, Pausing neither in the cities nor the de&crts, Nowhere not even the tomb." Peophect Fulfilled. "If these infernal fanatics and abolitionists ever get power in tneir nanus,-- saia me great Webster on a memorable occasion, "they will override the Constitution, set the Supreme Court-at defi ance, change and make laws to suit them selves, lay violent hands on those who differ with them in their opinion, or dare question their infallability, and finally bankrupt the country, or deluge it with blood." Millions of such warnings says a contemporary, were impotent to stay the tide of abolition fanatic ism. It reached power, and in a few short months the most of this prophecy is already fulfilled. To save the country from further calamities, let the people unite to put down the author of them all abolition, Provi dence Post. Politeness Rewabded. A gentleman, on leaving the opera one evenig previous to the fall of the curtain, overtook, in the lob by, an elderly lady, making her way out to avoid a crowd. She was dressed in a most peculiar manner, with hoop and brocades, and a pyramid of hair; in fact, she was at least a century behind the rest of the world in her costume. So singular an apparition had attracted the attention of half-a-dozen Lord Dukes and Sir Harrys sitting in the lobby, and as she slowly moved towards the box-entrance, they amused themselves by making impertinent remarks on her extra ordinary dress and infirm gait. Directly our gentleman caught sight of them, and saw what they wero after, be went to her assis tance, threatened to give them in charge to a Bow-street officer, and, with a polite bow, offered her his arm. She accepted it; and on the stairs he inquired whether she had a chair or carriage, at the same time intima ting his willingness to go for one. 'I thank you, sir, I have my chair,' replied tha lady, if you will be only good enough to remain with me till it arrives.' As she was speak ing, her servants came up with it, and mak ing the cavalier a very stately courtesy, she requested to know to whom she bad the honor of being indebted for so much atten tion. 'My name, madam,' replied the stran ger, as he handed her to the chair, ,is Booth- by; but I am usually called Prince Bootby;' upon which the antiquated old lady thanked him onced more, and left. Well, from that hour Boothy never saw her again, and did not even hear of her till her death, which took place a few years after, when he re ceived a letter from her lawyer, announcing to him the agreeable intelligence of her having left him heir to several thousand a year. The following correspondence has passed between Gen.Tuttle and Secretary Stanton: Cairo, September 19. To Hon. E. M. Stanton, Secietary of War: ueneral Urant is sending here large lots of negroe women and children, and directs mo to ask you what to do with them. Par ties in Chicago and other cities wish them for servants. Will I be allowed to turn them over to responsible committees, to be so em ployed? If so, can I transport them at Government expense.' J. M. Iuttle, Brig. Gen. Com'dg District of Cairo. Washington, Sept, 18, 1862. Brigadier General Tattle; You are authorized to turn over to re sponsible committees, negro woman and children, who will take them in charge and provide them with employment and sup port in tho .Northern Estates, ana you may furnish transportation at uovernment ex pense, E. M. Stanton, secretary ol War. Five, ten and twenty-five cents Government sbinplasters have made their appearance here in small quantities. They look like a tremendous "war power," should whip any thing of their size that the Confederates can produce. Columbus (O.) Crisis. Many a married soldier, says Prentice, goes through a campaign without a scratch and that's better than they can do at home. The Advaxtage of Using Tobacco. The following wa3 communicated to Com. Wilkes, of the exploring expedition, by a savage of the Fegee Islands. He stated that a vessel, the hulk of which was still lying on the beach, had come ashore in a storm, and that all the crew had fallen into the hands of the islanders. What did you do with them?' inquired Wilkes. Killed 'em all,' answered the savage. What did you do with them after you had killed them?' Eat 'em good,' returned the cannibal. Did you eat them all?' asked tho half sick commodore. 'Yes, we eat all but one.' 'And why did you spare one?' 'Because he taste too much like tobacco. Couldn't eat nohow.' If a tobacco chewer should happen to fall into the hands of New Zealand savages, or get shipwrecked somewhere in the Fegee group, he will have the consolation of know ing that he will not be cut into steaks and buried in the unconsecrated stomach of a csnnibal. An excellent furniture polish is made with one pint of Linseed oil and about a half a gill of alcohol, stirred well together and ap plied well to the furniture with a linen rag. After this it is rubbed dry with a soft cotton cloth and finished by rubbing with an old piece of silk, when, after several applications, a most beautiful gloss on the furnitiare will be the result. A mule driver in the army was swearing at and kicking a pair of balky mules, when the general, who was annoyed at his pro fanity ordered him to stop. Who are you?' Commander of the brigade?'

More new hospitals will be opened in a few days A certain preacher in Iowa once took the text, 'Husbands, love your wives.' Having proceeded to a great length on the main sub ject, he arrived at his application much out of breath. Pausing for a moment, to wipe the sweat from his brow, he glanced towards Emily (his wife) and began as follows: Now, brethring, we certainly don't love our wives as we'd orter! I don't love Em'ly as I'd orter, but if I was to have another wife, I'd love her better'n I hev Em'ly. Gbeen Tomato Pie. Stew a quart of green tomatoes sliced in two cups of sugar. When done, put three teaspoonsful of tar taric acid to them, and bake between two crusts. This will make a good-sized pie. Canning Feuit. The best cans are wide mouthed glass bottles, and use no corks. Lay them in a pan of cold water, (warm, if you please,) set them over a kettle of hot water, while your fruit is heating in a nice ly cleaned brass or porcelain kettle. Allow three ounces of sugar to a pound of poaches, and four ounces to a pound of cherries or currants. If you have a very aweet tooth, von mfiv like more: taste and ascertain. - Now remember the old couplet, "A pint's a pound The world around," and you will find that two pounds of fruit, with the sugar, will fill a quart can. As soon as the fruit begins to boil, empty the now hot water from one of your bottles, set on plate, (so as to save what is spilled,) fill it full, wipe the ede of the bottle, and haro readv a cover to put on immediately, pre pared as follows: The simplest, cheapest, and surest way, is to take two tableBpoonfuls of rosin, (pound the large lumps, so yau can measure it,) and one of gum-shellao, witn piece of bees-wax as large as a hickory nut, and melt together. Take a piece of cotton drilling, (or any thick, strong cloth,) lay It on a moderately hot stove, and spread tha cement upon it sufficiently large to cover tha edge of the bottle, put it on, cement down ward, tie firmly, and spread upon top, and your work is done. A depression in tbe top will show you that a vacuum is formed, and your work perfect. A word of caution about the shellac may save perplexity. If not good, it will not mix with the rosin and ferni a smooth cement, but settle in a hard lump, and the more it is heated the worse it ,;n k. TtannA it. will ha found to be clear on being held up to the light; if not, full of black specks. Such is my experience. Large-mouthed crocks can be sealed In this way, if the glazing is good. Last year I filled a two gallon crock, seven inches across the top, and in January the fruit was excellent. Save all the covers; they can be used many times bj placing them in your cement pan in the oven, and adding new where needed. H. S. L., in Bural New Yorker. Lemon Pie. Crust made and placed oo tins the same as for apple pie; slice very thin the half of a common sized lemon, with the peel shaved off; scatter this peel, chopped fine, upon the bottom crust, among your slices. Stir together enougn sweet mus who, a heaping tablespoonful of flour to make a thin batter, then add two-thirds of a teacup ful of sugar and a teacupful of sweet milk. Stir all well together and pour slowly over your slices in the tin; cover with a crust, tha same as the bottom, and bake rather slowly. Tomato Figs. Take plum or pear-shaped tomatoes, scald and peel them. To sixteen pounds of fruit put six pounds of sugar; boil until soft, then take them out, put in a dish, and flatten them. Dry them in the sun; then pack in a Jar or box and sift white sugar over every layer. Cover the jar or box with paper, and they will keep for year. Take the round yellow variety as soon as ripe, scald and peel; then to seven pounds of tomatoes add natron nntinla nf whif.n K11raf and let them ot.uu jwuut..? v.
