MISCELLANEOUS. Two Pounds of Butter Out of One. I here present to your rend ers as a free gift a recipe for which I paid five dollars two years ngo and whatever oth ers may say or think, I do not regret the expenditure : To every pound of butter you mnet use one pint of milk and the yellow of two eggs. The last named article is to be well beaten up and placed in the churn. The churn must first be cleansed with hot water. After putting in the yellow of the eggs you must pour in the milk, which must be slightly warmed in cool weather. Then cut up the butter (if it is hard) into small bits or slices. Then churn in the usual way. Butter will come in a few minutes, and you will have double the amount you put in. The prop er temperature of the materials in order to make butter quick, is fifty-five degrees of Fahren heit's thermometer, which is somewhat less than milk warm. Put the butter on ice or over water, and don't work it for forty-eighty hours, and you will have as solid an article as ever went on a table. f Some farmers allow them selves to fall into the miserable and costly habit of letting their cows, early in the spring;, roam at will over their meadows. Nothing is more injurious. The ground always wet in the spring, ia trodden intouch an unequal surface that, beside the great injury to the grass rootg, mow ing is made more difficult, and the loss in subsequent crops is many times greater than all the cattle get in their perambu lations. Keep the cows and other cattle in the barn or in the barn yard, or some small lot adjoining, till there is grass enough in the pastures to give them a good bite; and then when' turned out, with one feeding of hay each day, they will have just what they need to secure to them the best health and to the owner the .largest profit. ThcuWhlto Laborer Asks: Pay, African lovers, who set Samuo free, Who gave you tho right to muko a do.niwak of Protect Your Eye Sight. Milton's blindness was the result of overwork and dys pepsia. Une or the most emi ncnt American divines, having tor some time been compelled to forgo tho pleasure of read ing, has spent thousands of dol lars in value, and lost years of time in consequence of getting up several r. urs betore day and studying by artincial light. His eyes never got well. . Multitudes of men and wo men have made their eyes weak for life by the too free use of the eyesight, reading small print and doing tine sewing. In view of these things, it is well to observe the following rules m the use or the eyes. Avoid all sudden changes be tween light and darkness. Never read by twilight, or moon-light, or on a very cloudy day. Never read or sew directly in front of the light, or window, or door. It is best to have the light fall from above, obliquely over the left shoulder. Never sleep so that on the first waking, the eyes shall open on the light of the window. Do not use the eyesight by light so scant that it requires an ef fort to discriminate. Too much light creates a glare, and pains and confuses the sight. The moment you are sensible of an effort to dis tinguish, that moment cease, and take a walk or ride. And as the sky is blue and the earth green, it would seem that the ceiling should be a bluish tinge, and the carpet green, and the walls 01 some mellow tint. The moment you are instinct ively prompted to rub the eyes, that moment cease using them. If the eyelids are glued to gether on waking up do not forcibly open them, but apply the saliva with the finger it is the speediest dilutent in the world then wash your eyes and face in warm water.

To each quart of juice extracted add two quarts 01 cold water, and three pounds' of good brown sugar. Having stirred all well together, let it remain undisturbed till the next day, then skim and Bet it in a cool place to ferment. Keep it uncovered, and fill it up every day until done work ing. In six or eight days, when it has ceased tormenting, cork it closely, adding, if you wish, a little good brandy a pint to every eight gallons of wine will be sulhcient. As soon as it becomes clear it is fit to bottle. It will be fine wine in the course of the win ter. .... James Gordon Bennett and Horace Greeley are both dan gerously ill.

THE RAILROAD. GALLIPOLIS, O., June 20th, '70. Mr. Editor: As tho timohas come when the Subscription Books of the Oallipolia, McAr thur and Columbus Kaihoad are to te opened, tho construe tion of which is of vital impor tance to our county as well as the city, I sincerely hope that every man of means ia waiting, for the timo to come, when they will oubscribe to the stock, to the utmost of their ability, lu order to construct the long talked of, and so much desired, Railroad. Llaving recently become a citizen of Gallia county, I am, therefore, deeply interested and identified with the pros perity of tho county; and hav ing removed from a portion of our great and growing State traversed by different railroads, among the most important and best paying ia the United States, the Great lm Handle route, lrom Philadelphia, via. Columbus, to Chicago and St. Louis; also tho River Divison of the Cleveland & Pittsburg R. R. from Wellsville on the main lino to Itellaire, Ohio which pays very handsomely to the stockholders, and is an incalculable benefit to the coun try through which it passes, let me state an honest fact: that a largo portion of the comr.tuni ty was violently opposed to the Railroads took no stock themi selveB, but tried to prevent others from doing so, and acted in tho same manner about the right of way. When the cars had been running but a short tune they were asking and sell ing their property for double prices; and, to-day, the people for miles on each side of the Roads would give twenty-five per cent, of their actual wealth, rather than have tho track up and tics removed for .good and hoar no moro the whistle of the locomotive, and its echo along tho valleys and surround ing hills. Knowing the advan tago of Railroads from experi ence, I positively assort that tho proposed Gallipolis, Mc Ar thur & Columbus Road will pay a handsome per cent, to the. stockholders, if men of financial ability and economical in their dealings, control the same. Therefore, follow citiznes, as we have great need of a Kail road from here to Columbus, and have made several unsuc cessful efforts on former occa sions, let not the golden oppor tunity pass by us with the vain and delusive idea that men of capital from a distance will build our Railroad, and thereby increase our wealth, while we sit on the corners and whittle. 13ul come up to tho great and important part, and subscribe to the capital stock with Buch liberality that will convince men of capital elsewhere that " the people along the lino mean "business," are alivo to their own interests, &c, knowing that there are great advan. tages to be derived, with prop er railroad facilities through our communications and facili ties' for cheap and reliable transportation. Our minerals, coal fields and agricultural re sources, will be developed; trado will ba increased and stimulated; labor the great lever of all wealth and prospen ity will command remuner ative prices, while the agricul tural products of tho country will seek a foreign market, thereby commanding better pay to the farmer, and general prosperity will crown our ef forts, if successful in building our Railroad and establishing communication East and West. Therefore, let every man who feels himself able, subscribe in proportion to his abilities, and. not expect his neighbors to aid in building the object so much needed, for unless every effort is mada we may not bo such cessful, and the present oppor. tunlty will pass, and the, citi zens and travelers will have'to mud it out. While other por tions, with less means and loss natural advantages, but more vigilant to t he welfare and pros perity of their portion of the country, will reap the rewards of our Inactivity, Iloping and believing that the pooplo are ready and will ing to do all that is In their power in aiding in the building of the proposod Railroad, and that the Iron Horso will bo running down Ohickaraauga in less than throo years.

(From the Iowa Copperhead.) "Accomplished Facts." ; A certain class of Democrats, small in number, but respecta ble on account of their associa tions, are throwing themselves down on the ground in the depths of despair and exclaim ing : "It 18 of no use to fight against negro suffrage it is an accomplished fact." Now let us examine and see whether they are justifiable in thus giving way because of the temporary advantage gained by the negro party. At one time during the Rev olution, Lord North proclaimed to Parliament that the rebel lion in America was suppress ed that the authority of King George was re-established that the subjugation of the "rebels" was an "Accomplished Fact." The tyrants over Switzerland thought that every vestige of freedom had been crushed out of the land, and there were only three men left who were not subjugated. But these three were brave and determined, and kneeling among the wild crags or the mountains, they swore an earnest oath never to cease their efforts until their country was free and they overturned another, "Accomplished Fact." .The jews thought that when they crucified the Muster that his religion would die with him, but the evidences are too over whelming to even enumerate, which demonstrate that Chris tianity reversed uAn Accom plished Fact." "Accomplished Facts" occur every day. It is a fact that error tri umphs often over truth. But "Truth crushed will rise again." So will thi3 "Accomplished Fact" of negro suffrage and ne gro' equality be swept away even by the slow but sure logic of events which Nature impels in her defence. The unnatural force equaliza tion of the races cannot stand the pressure of the laws which govern everything. The white man is tho evan gelist of civilization. The negro is the black and dismal concomitant of barbar ism. Progress is the word. Fight against progress and civilization, and you fight against God and Nature. Plate not then about "Ac complished Facts'' to those who know what they are talking about. God is on our side. When he accomplishes facts, then will we "accept the situation."

WASHINGTON, June 22, 1870. Butler General Farnsworth met in battle array in the House this afternoon, aud the occasion was one of rare interest and excitement. Prob ably no other scene of person alities Avas ever allowed more limit in this body, or produced more unparliamentary language The basis in itself was insignifi cant, being the question of pass ing a private patent pistol bill, for the relief of one Rollin White, over the President's veto. While Butler was ad vocating the passage of the bill Farnsworth interjected a charge into the speech that produced a positive sensation, by declar ing that Butler had been em ployed as counsel for the oppo nent of White, but had turned around to represent the latter before Congress for a fee of $2,000. He exhibited a certi fied copy of a document on file in the Patent Office to show that Butler had received this sum. To this Farnsworth added that Butler had filed a small brief in the Supreme Court where a suit over the case was pending, as a mere pretense to cover the receipt of so large a fee for work to be done really in Congress. "I therefore charge bira," said Farnsworth, with vehement force and gesture, "with being on both sides of this case oh one side without a fee, and then on the" the other side of the case with a fee." By this time the whole House was on its feet. The entire Democratic side came into the central aisle to see what would follow next. Farnsworth had the rule rend that no member shall vote on a matter in which he is interested. An attempt to shut off debate, and thus end the scene, failed, and Butler got the floor in re ply. Farnsworth sought an interruption. Butler excitedly said, "I don't yield to a man who has got more beard than brains," alluding to the former's long, iron-gray beard. Jbarns worth shouted out, "The mem ber may curse my beard, but he shall not come into the House and steal under the shadow of it.1' This was re ceived with shouts of "Order" from the Republicans, and cries of "Good ! good l" and nods of approval from the Democrats. But Butler went on with his reply, charging Farnsworth with having made an infamous and maliciously falso statement, aud addiner that ho acted in the first instance against the White patent for some of his constituents, but that ho was not called into the case profes sionally until White came to him and said his couusel was ill, and asked Butler to take his place in the Supreme Court in the pending case. He did this by preparing the brief, which he said took him a month, and for which he received the sum named, but that he never argued the case because the counsel first employed was then able to go on himself; dis claiming any interest in it in violation of the law and his po sition as a Member, as Mr. Farnsworth had charged. He concluded by saying that he who had dealt this plow, with out notice, and when he (But let) was unprepared, was a coward and an assassin. Down came the Speaker's gavel with a fearful blow, but the Speaker said nothing. The whole House looked first at the Speaker and then at- Farnsworth, who was in his seat, and then at Butler. The gavel fall was succeeded by no call to order. "Is it a mess age from tho benater inquired Butler. The Speaker was now as Bilcnt as his gavel, and it was evident- that this was not the usual signal announcing a message from tho Senate, but an incompleted call to order. Butler ' pushed- abend .with, a repetition of his charge...'1! take it," said he, land I reiter ate it, that it is a princinle of ethics that no one here will dispute, that he who deals a blow on one that is nnnrtnurpfl for it, and has no notice of it, fa an assassin ana a coward, and I venture that it is an assertion that evenQthe Speaker's gavel will not interrupt." Butler then sat down, full of passion and excitement. The members were requested to take their seat3 and order was restored. After a little more debate tha vote wus taken, but so general wa3 the feeling against Butler, who had at first advocated tha bill, when he knew he was in terested, that he only got twelve votes, the measure being rejected by more than a hun dred majority. The Meanest Thief on Record. Wiishington Banks, a stal wart fellow of about thirty, found his way into one of the cells of the First Precint station yesterday for playing the role of a minuter in order to swindle a poor wo nan out of $5. The accused was in the neighbor hood of St. Mary's Market on Saturday morning, when he was accosted by a young woman, who asked him where she could find a minister to christen her child. Finding that she was willing to pay for the ceremony, Banks said that he was a min ister, and accompanied her to her house, where he found the child at the point of death. He sent the mother out to borrow a Bible, and then went through the form of christening tbe child, which died during the performance. Banks now told the mother that he would attend to matters, and have her namo enrolled in the society of which he was a minister. The snW.v he said, would pay all the ex penses 01 the luneral, but sho must give $5 for the christening fee and the initiation. She gave him the money and he left in a hurry, taking the Bible with him, and promising to re turn in half an hour with a coffin. , As nothing was heard of him afterward, the woman had a warrant issued for him on the charere of larcenv of tha Bible and obtaining money on iaise pretences, ana the swind ler was soon in cusfcodv.
