It is now only a few years since the invention ol movable comb hives lias opened up a new era in bee-keeping, ami phieetl it on the basis of a successful busi ness pursuit. Such hives, adapted to climate, Imiiish every facility lor Intelligent management of llees, by regulating swarming, guarding against moths, anil manipulating both bees and comb. 2. The invention of the extractor or honey -stinger, a machine which euijitk-r. the honey from the Combs bye.eiiliilngiil Puce, without injury j so that Hie comb maybe returned to the bees, marks another great step in apiculture. This irgiu honey, lice from foreign adini.vture, is obtained, having the llavor of the linwer friiiit which it is drawn. 3. The further invention of an arlilicial comb (oumlatton, made ot pure wiix, tirst successfully used to a huge extent this season, cotn- pie.ies u:e requisites lor placing bee-keeping on the basis ol a great industry in our country. Jiees re ceive this artificial comb founda tion with readiness us receptacles liofli for honey and brood. 4. Simultaneous with the first and all of these imp! ovinetits, the intioiliiclioti of Italian bees and improved modes of rearing tiueeusi of transporting ami introducing them to colonics, has greatly im proved the value ot the htiney ga thereis, both -because of the supe riority 'of the Italian beo and the introduction of a new blood. .New blood prevents the ilaniror from in- and-in breed i n w- o. me great uruwouc-K to ani- f. 'CI i cultuie is the stin-j- of the bee. Danger troiii (his source is now largely overcome by the simple ap pliances used for the protection of tlie person and lor subduing the bees, 'fhe most vicious colony may be subdued in a very few minutes. G. To consumers of honey a few facts are necessary ia this article to preserve lliem from imposition. Nice white comb speaks for itself) and is generally admired; but, the price many lovers of honey cannot alford. Jt makes a beautilul dish for tho table, but is no better than extracted honey. Allcomb is wax, nud wax in the stomach is perfectly lnitigestniie. I'.xuacteil honey is the pure liquid honey as it is taken from tho combs by the honey sliugei free from any foreign ad mixture. It is entirely dilicreiit It oin what is known in this market as strained honey. Consumers help to impose upon themselves bv tho false itlea that pure honey will not granulate. Thev desire tin. granulated honey, and dealers will attempt to supply the demand. Al most all pure houev will granulate when exposed for some lime to light and cold. The granulated state is a lino evidence ot pure honey, JWtic'h of the jar honey liere toforo sold in I ho markets, and re commended not to granulate, is a very inferior article, com posed largely of glucose or some inferior substance. Granulated houev can be reduced to its liquid state in a few moments by placing the jar in warm water. When thus lioucficd it so remaims for stiuie time v i 1 1 1 -, out a train crystal! mug. Consum ers may be sure of a ji'd, w hole some article by purchasing granu lated honey ami reducing it. 7. To I'rodiu-erx. By the full use of improvement in lie keeping the honey crop ot America may lc almost indefinitely increased, and become a great source of natioiml j revenue; .None tieetl fear over-1 they crouched down to sleep, that production. The home demand oiie of thetlraiight and cold might ami foiisiiiiTjrfion is largely in- j be kept from lliem; One of ihn creased whenever people learn to ; children wliisHi d to ber, when know the superiority of such honey. ! she complained of bow badly off Dealers in New York have already j they were,.4'Moll!cr, what tl. those commenced a large export trade, dear little children do ho have ik sutl they tell us that their only cellar door to put up iu front of dillicolty is procuring ho:iey in fbemf Hven there, you scfj the shape and quantity to supply tho little heart found cause for thauk growiiig demand. Trade demands fulness. JL'.r, that honey tm put up in nine, at-! tractive packages, nud hi small parcels or jais, so ss to bo readily handled by groccrs and consumers. Honey was for eontories the prin cipal sweet known, and is one of the most healthful of nil. Improve ment, iu refilling; sugars has within the last two or three centuries letl to its general adoption. Why may not also new improvements iu api culture restore it to its true place as a giMicral favorite,' which was lost by bad management and the consequent correspondingly limited supply t Wo believe that improvements in bee keeping, as compared with old methods, arc not less than those seen in railroads, , as compared with former modes of travel. For mutual information wo would advise tho td'g-auizttt-ion of local societies and conventions to far ther this business among all inter ested iu apiculture. " J. li. NELLIM, Preht TlIOK. G.

Capitalists in this country lire extraordinarily ignorant ot the ex tensive held now opened for specu lation iu real estate, or they would take advantage of tho present op portunity to possess themselves of (he old cotton plantations, iiutl thereon grow mutton ami wool for they could make ten times more bv wool than by, cotton, and get ai! the mutton as an extra profit. I am perfectly Certain, if I had (he control of a largo tract of laud, that, without tho aid of a single white niiut, and without any as sistance in buying or selling, I could stock these deserted planta tions with sheep and put them in charge of the negroes, so aS to have sheep husbandry established on forty thousand acres, and iu twenty years make more money than A. T. Stewart. Jacob Astor and the Van (lerltilts combined; for I would ex tend until millions would be made annually There would be a great advantage here over the English colony ot Australia, yet, there, ! sheep are more numerous than iu this much earlier-settled country. Statistics have proved that in the South dining the last three years wool has paid sixty percent. lor growing while cotton lists not paid more thau five to seven per cent,; and then it must be recol lected that the plieep have been managed on such a poor, miserable system that, double this amount ot profit could be made- by an en lightened method of treatment, aud mutton ;t the Very best quality sold luumally, which would en hence pfiiilts far beyond anything the present Western -sheep-owners have auv idea of. Mutton sum ivonl would produce more million than cotton ever did. (Imryc (lard ntr in Jairal Aeir Xorker, Improving Worn Lunttt. (irc'ii manuring is-tlio cheapest quickest and easiest system tor re cupt rating worn lands; it does not require the heavy hauling and spreading that manure does. Farmers who have not tried it much, and have not closely ob served Jho. practice, can scarcely realize, and will hardly credit, the power ol green manure to restore and enrich poor ami worn lands nj to fcriilily It is the quickest am easiest mode ot replacing the ex hausted needed vegetable humus and organic elements so essential to tin llty, luxuriant plant growth. i hat clement, til course, is also abundantly supplied by barnyard manure, muck, peat and forest leaf mold, when they can be had plentifully; but tho application of them is attended with much hard labor in hauling rnd spreading; still, tho operation richly pavs for ail the cost and labor that it costs. Bui seedingand piowingiiiclover, peas, grasses and other green crops will ert'ect the eutnfl object with much less labor, and can W hail in all localities, while barnyard man ure cannot always be had in all places. And when the soil is well sup plied with these vegetable elements, then ail ether fertilizers, ns ashes, lMiieft, liuie, guano, phosphate, salt and the like will give their best results in stimulating rich, rapidly growing crops. But it is vain to exect to make n permanent, good noil with those fertilizers alone, when the land is not supplied with a Hiiflieieucy of vegetable matter, nor will they give their best returns.

The Influence of the Mooii on Crops, A roi respondent of a Xew York paper was planting potatoes on the twelfth of the month, on the increase of the moon; several of the neigh bors were present, and a discussion arose as to the effect tho niooii had on different crops. Answering its correspondent's inquiry, the paper says: There has becu always a powerful superstition that tlie moon exerted a great influence up on the n tin its ol mankind, but this idea has prevailed chiefly among those who did not understand the utter impossibility that the moon could exert any such influences. Formerly tho stars were supposed to assist the moon in these luter ferences with mankind ami their labors, aud tcr be able to "read tho stars'' was equivalent to tlie pos session ot prophetic powers. Now the stars have lost this reputation, and the moon is in a fair way to lose what little is loft to it For nierly crazy people were "moon-' struck" but now, when we see a lunatic (derived from Luun, the moon, and really moaning moon struck;, we tlo not blame the moon for it. The moon has now fallen so low as to be supposed by some to iutlueiice only the twiuing of beans ou the poles, the planting ot seeds, the wasting of fat pork in the pan, unless It was killed under a growing moon, anil the making ot soft soap. Ion reasonable per son this seems a small business for the moon to be engaged iu, or very-unlikely thing that the iifomi can exert any such inrliieuco. If the test is made, it will be found that there is not the least dOler ence in tho growth of crops, the spending ol fat pork, the success ful making ot sott soap, or any rf her ot our common labors, from the moon iutPioiHSP. If any differ ence occurs, it will be from other causes, such as soil, weather, trtt' Lastly, it isalwobttely certain that the moon's iutlueiice ou our atmos phere is soveiy small that it can not even effect the weather iu tbe leai: It Is a Knct. ft bt :- tbt l"r. l'nee'd Special TU Tonnic Eitractaof Leinou, Vanilla, Btww, Oranc".

Its property of preserving tissues and preven ting mould or mildew was well known to tho ancients, who used cerecloth for embalming, ami the wax for encaustic painting, as iu Itiuwall pictures of l'oinpeii. Wax candles aud tapers play an impor tant part in the professions and ceremonies of the ltoutau Cnthdl'i! church. Wax Is used by the man ufacturers of glazed ornamental and wall papers, nud on paper collars nud cutis for polishing the surfaces. It is used ill varnishes ami paints and for the stufllng ot wood which is to be polished, as for pianos, coach work, tine furniture, and par quell o floors, ek'ctrotypers ami plasterers use wax iu forming their molds. Wax is au important, lib gredient in preparations for cover ing surfaces or polished iron ami steel to prevent rust. Combined with tallow, it formes the coating for canvass aud cordage to prevent mildew an fu sails, avviliugs, &c. Artificial llowers consume much wax, and despite the introduction of paraflnc, ceresin, and mineral wax, its use appears to bo extend ing, vjuo ot I lie enlist ot its ap plications is in the laundry, aiid iu pol. slung woodwork) The product of was in tho United States is stated to be 20,000,000 pounds annually, and increasing worth in money at least $6,000,000. ii tins auont tf iuii,ooo worm are exported, and about 31,200,000 worth ot honey also goes abroad. Tho total product of honey and wax is worth at present in the United States nearly ?5,000,000. The l.lcctric Light. lilectric light has been employed tor the lust tunc to illuminate a theater. The American Kegister says the Chntelet theatre at l'aris is lighted on the system in use for tho lamp-posts on the Place do l'Opera. For some months past the inventor, M. Jablochkoll, and AI. Castellano, tlie manager of the ('hatelet theater, have been at tempt ing experiments that have finally succtededj and now tlio dazzling electric light throws its brilliant radiance over the ballets, and the principal eftccts ot the spectacular fairy pieces mtr lliiiig' played at the Clialt'leti Ou tho evening of the seventh of May an experiment was made of the electric light from lainp-nosts in it'iuit ot the mansion house, and tho Koyal Exchange, Loudon. The light was so bright, and clear that a newspaper could be'read at a distance of lilty feet. To temper its intensity, milk-white-shades ' were used. A spi ctutor describes it as a fifty moon-power light. It is coming into general use in Paris for lighting public squares, gardens, and great ureas, railroad depots nud factories. Dnilding operations can be carried on under its sun-like radiance by night as well as by day. . Foot AVusMng, Weter Valley Couri ier. About twelve miles from Water Valley and four from Cotlccville, on the (loftpevilk and Panola road, there lias stood lor years as tar back as we can i'eiiieinber--nn old primitive Uaptist church called Hlii Idah.

Ou its church roll is a largo iiuin ber of the best people of that conn try good old fashion Daptist men and women, who meet at their church once every year, when the condition of their membership will idniit, to hold their communion nud wash each other's feet., This latter practice has caused the sec ond Sunday in May to be caHed foot-washing day at Shiloah, and ram or shine, there never tails to be present a large congregation some tor pious motives, some for the fun of the thing, and some- for tlie pleasure of going; ' Last Sunday every available horse, mule, buggy, carriage and hack were engaged and booked for t bo Shiloak foot-washing.
