MIDNIGHT AND NOONDAY. BY ECCE FRATER. CHAPTER XV. Tho rapid steps of the comer soon brought him to the door, when ho promptly informed the family, that Willie had been thrown from his horse and se riously injured, and was at that time speechless, lying in the house of Deacon Crocko. That the reader may the bet ter understand us, the boy had been sent three miles from the village that evening after school, to attend to some af fairs for Mr. L. When this sudden, sad news was divulged to the Uncle and Aunt, there was hot haste about that house for a few moments, and both were on their way to Mr. Crocko's. On their arrival, they found that Willie had revived some what, and was able to converse. His injury seemed to be . inter nal, as he frequently spit out largo quantities of blood. The Doctor had been sent for, and arrived shortly after Mr. and Mrs. L. After exam ination, Dr. Hoy remarked,that he could not tell how serious the injury was, as it seemed to be produced by the force of the fall, but hoped it would not prove fatal. That night, it was "mid night," in tho heart of Mrs. Lo renzo, as she sat beside the bed and listened to the heavy breathings of her idolized boy. At times he seemed delerious, and then lie would talk so plaintively about the other world, and about his Aunt and the Parson ; that tears were of ten rolling down the cheeks of Mrs. Lorenzo in spite of all she could do. Mr. Lorenzo, soon became weary, and went to sleep. Oth ers did the same, and tho kind Aunt watched the little sufferer alone, with the good angel vigils. By-and-by, the boy roused again, and seeing his kind- hearted Aunt by him, he reach ed out his arms and placing thorn around her neck, said: "Dear Aunt, have they left you alone. You are my dear kind friend no one so good as you," and with these words he pressed many a warm kiss up on the pale face of his dear Aunt. "Willie," said his Aunt, "did you rest easy during your Bleep?" "I guess I did, for I thought I was living in one of the pret tiest countries I ever saw. The whole land was covered with pretty flowers, trees were bur dened with Iruit and birds were singing songs, mingled with words amid the groves. I saw all the dear friends of other years, and above all the Lord Jesus Christ." "Did you speak to Jesus, or He to you, Willie?" said Mrs. Lorenzo. . "Yes." The' first thing he told mo was that he had always loved good children, and that he loved me and heard my pray era, and when he told mo that he Itcard my prayers then I shouted aloud our joy, for it dhl not seem to me that I was dead, and I felt that if Jesus 'heard my prayers,' then I could have all the help I need ed, and get to go to school, and become a minister of the Gos pel." "Yes, yes dear boy, Jesus hears the prayers ,of all who love him and pray in faith, and Ho will give you all the need you require in your endeavors to be a good and useful man." For along time, both remain ed silent, as if engaged in er in prayer and deep thought, kwlwMtMrrLweiweoHwdTijV and came blundering into the room, rubbing his half open eyes. "What time is it?" "Twenty minutes after four" said the wife. "La me 1 1 slop so sound that I never woke up all this time, and entirely forgot that the boy had to be set up with, but then I am not such a baby about small matters as my little wifo" said the warm hearted calcula ting Mr. Lorenzo. "I feel quite uneasy about the result of Willies hurt, so I did not feel like sleep," said Mrs. L Hallo ! Bill, wake up boy, what about our going home?" "Don't speak so loud hus band, Willie is not asleep and you will rouse the whole house." "What if I do, its time they were up any how, and about getting ready for their days work," said our L. Willie, now took occasion to tell his Uncle that he was much better and thought he could be taken home soon. "Soon" said the gruff, man, do you mean a week or two hence? You must go home this morning, I don't propose to pay a bill for keeping you here for a week or two." "Oh! husband, we must not be too hasty about his removal you know" replied the wife. "I will go at any time you see proper to take me" said the boy. "The physician must be con sulted" said Mrs. Lorenzo, "be fore I shall consent to his re moval." "Then I'll go right off and see what Dr. Hoy says, and I have no doubt but what he will decide that fresh air will be good for the lad," said Mr. Lorenzo. TO BE CONTINUED. Water from Great Depths. An apparatus has been re cently devised in Germany for obtaining specimens of water at any desired depth of the ocean. A strong, heavy vessel, entirely closed and empty, has a valve through which water may be admitted, but which is only put in motion by moans of powerful electro-magnets connected with a wire which accompanies the rope by means of which the ap paratus is lowered from the ship. When the empty vessel, which is in fact a plummet, has reached the required depth, a current t)f electricity is sent from the battery on shipboard to the coils below ; the magne tism thus generated opens the valves, and the vessel is filled and ready to bex drawn up. It is said, that a bar of iron worth five dollars it is worth, when manufactured into horse shoes, $10 00; table knives, $1 80 ; bottons and buckles, $4,035; springs of watches, $250,000. A youag man in Allentown opens 100 oysters in six min utes, and an old man there swallows them as fast. Deep Sea Discoveries. Otie of tho discoveries made by the deep sea soundings of the;;; Challenger expedition, which, arrived recently at Benhiida from the Azores, is a mountain ridgo which extends froni; Greenland to the 'mouth of the Amazon on tho coast of Soulp America, and includes the fwholo volcanic region of the jlzores. This ridge is no where more than two miles be low the ocean level. Toward theWst it is divided between Eur ope and Africa by an im mense valley from two and a Mi thr ?e miles in tlcnth. The valley reaches north of the equator as far as the fifty-second degree of latitude. If this valley were not under water it rould present a view of whose niagnificence no conception can be formed, for in tho north it extends to the gigantic moun tains of the Cape Verde and the Canary Islands, the latter of which, with the peak of Ten eri'fle, would be 26,000 feet in height. Maderia would com mand from a height of 20,000 feet, a view of this valley and another stretching toward the Mediteranean. On the western side of the ridge is a vast un dulating plain, which extends at an average depth of two and three quarter miles to the American coast. Bermuda, which rises now only 200 feet above the ocean level, is, in fact, an isolated column 15,000 feet high, which would overlook an amphitheater of at least 500 miles in radius. Between the West Indies and America, and in the vicinities of the Azores, the water is of uniform depth and warmth. There was not- much animal life found in the great depths. The blind Crus tacea appear to belong to the Western hemisphere; in this part these animals require many eyes. A sea garnel was caught, which, singular to relate, had four eyes, two of which were in the front knee-joints. An Important Enterprise. [From the Atchison Champion.] J. V. Coon, Esq., of Elyria, Ohio, owns, near Blue Rapids, about a thousand acres of land, all underlaid with gypsum of the best quality. He thinks fully a hundred thousand tons of this article are uncovered, and the quantity is absolutely unlimited. Mr. Coon's atten tion was some time ago attrac ted to these extensive beds of gypsum, and he determined to test their value. He took spec imens of the article East, and had it examined by the most competent men. Among others it was examined and tested by the managers of the Plaster of Paris Works, at Sandusky,Ohio, tho most extensive in the Uni ted States, and pronounced by them superior to any ever be tore known in this country. It is pronounced by competent judges to bo equal to the mate rial of France, from which the article takes its name. Satis fied upon this point Mr. Coon sent to Bluo Rapids two .Porta ble crushing machines, with en gine and boiler, for manufac turing the plaster, and has giv en tho matter a thorough test. The result has confirmed the opinion of the experts and who examined tho material and jus tified the expectations of Mr, Coon. He has produced speci mens of plaster, tho quality of which has never been excelled either in the country or Europe. Boots are stiff, straitened and confined, like Egyptian mummies, which are bound round with thousand of yards of ribbon.

A hundred years ago it took only 1,200 lamps to light Paris. Now it requires nearly 40,000. A Boston man was cursing an editor the other day when he fell dead. Several similar instances have been lately re ported.

There is no doubt that Bos ton feels the hard times. The drama fails to draw over two-thirds of a house, and those who go growl about the price. The problem of telegraphing in the Chinese language, to write which requires some 50, 000 different characters, has been solved in this way : A few thousands ot the characters most used, are cut upon wooden blocks and are at each telegraph station. The China merchant selects the blocks whicbfex press the thoughts to bo trans mitted. The operator tele graphs only the numerals des ignation these blocks,which en able the receiving operator to select similar block at his , end of the line. "Father, everybody's poor now, ain't they ?" "Yes, my son, there is a panic." "Well, last summer you said that every poor man had to' work hard to pay our President $25,000 more a year; now, why don't, they tell him he can't have it this winter because tho poor men want it to buy bread for their children ?" A private letter from London England, informs us that the emi ncnt Dr. II. T. IIeljibold, of Buchu notoriety, is in that city, and drunk or crazy all tho time. His family is in Paris, and his wifo has kicked him out, having nothing more to do with him.

The Arrest of John II. Whit- ney, at Salt Lake City, and Joel Lawrence at New York, were diaiIo upon complaint of 15. B. Ward, of Detroit. It is claimed that about a year ago Whitney and Lawronce induced Ward to invest $200,000 in stock of tho Eureka Silver Mine of Utah, and that the mine was halt ed" for tho purpose of swindling Ward. It is understood that near ly $100,000 of Eureka stock is own ed by other parties hero, who also have been victimized. - i It seems that Senator SrRAarjs has provided well 'for his chiidron, if he has gone into bankruptc'.

Housekeeping Department. Hints to Housekeepers. Lemon Jelly. Take a paper of gelatine, and let it soak in a pint of warm water an hour, then add a quart of boiling wa ter and the juice of twojlemons, and a pint and a half of sugar. Baked Eggs. A matron says : Beat up six eggs, one tablespoonful of flour, six of sweet milk; melt your butter in the frying pan ; when hot, turn the whole in,' well beaten and bake in a hot oven. ,vBakeju Tomato EiuToka the m when fully ripe, cut off a slice from the stem side, scoop out the pulp of the tomato, and salt. Fill the empty shell with the mixture, replace the slices, put them in a shallow pan, and bake an hour. Cold Sauce. Four table spoonfuls of sugar, two of but ter. When these have been rubbed until very white and smooth, add the beaten white of an egg. Flavor it and mold it into some pretty shape. Egg Cake. Two cups ot sugar, one egg, a piece of but ter the size of an egg, one cup of sour milk, one tablespoonful of soda, a little salt and nutmeg, one teaspoonful of lemon, three cups of flour ; beat the white of egg separately, the sugar and yolk and butter together ; bake in a thoroughly heated oven. Plain Doughnuts. One pint of rich butter and milk, one heaping teaspoonful of soda, half that quantity of salt, three tablespoon luls of melted lard, flour to knead well. Consomme. Rich broth, clar ified, becomes consomme. It is the best ..and., most . nutritious food that can be given to old people, because it is easily di- j 1 a gesteu, ana does not reqnire any mastication ; it is, in ' fact, to old people what milk is to the infant. Consomme is beef in a liquid state, having the same nutritive properties. Af ter having strained the broth; put it back in the kettle with (for two quarts of broth) two onions and two carrots in sli ces, two raw eggs, a few ounces of chopped, lean beef ; beat the whole well together, set on the fire, and boil gently until clear. The process will take about half an hour ; then strain, and it is ready. If it is wanted very nutritious, use more chop ped meat. In a preceding nunlber we gave directions for making broth as rich as desired. Succotash. This is decided' ly a favorite dish. Unfortunate ly few people 'know how to make it. Sweet corn and lima beans make the epicure's sue i a . ....a m cotasii, but string beans are commonly used. ' Strip "off the the husks and silk from a dozen ears of sweet corn, and cut tho grains off tho cobs. If the corn is nqt very tender, chop as for green corn pudding. String quart of green beans and . chop them into half-inch lengths. Put the corn and beans togeth er into a quart of cold water or milk, , cover, them .close, and boil eritly until done. Usual time, three-quarters of an hour, brat it h safest to test them. A few minutes before taking oft the fire, add a toacupful of ta ble butter, and salt and pepper to taste. Stir well together. let itsboil up, then take the suc cotash out in a dish with as mucjvof . the liquid as may bo ddSlrcd. In place of butter, half a pound of nico corned fat pork - m ay. bo boiled ' with the beans and " corri. i ' The '.L, pork slwiuld first be cut in-very thin slices, and no additional Bait will be required. First Devons in America. According' to . a correspond ent, the first Devon cattle im ported to America were a bull and six heifers presented to Robert Patterson, of Baltimore, by Mr. Coke,' afterward Earl of Leicester, in 1817. In 1835 another Devon bull was im ported and thereafter frequent ly. This was the origin of the famous Patterson nerd, still in existence. Keeping Green Corn. The following inexpensive mode : of . preserving . corn for fable use"aftef "its" "season has passed, is suggested by an ex perimenter: Dip the ears into boiling water and let them re main about two minutes ; take them out, and when ' cool cut the corn from the cob and dry it, just as you would dry fruit, and when dry put it away in clean ' paper sacks. - By this means one may enjoy the lux ury of green corn at any time. F. Broom Corn. The cultivation ol broom in the corn has been checked West by the cheapness of the article, so that farmers" scarcely obtain prices sufficient to pay the expenses of raising it. The late storms have also caused serious injury to the compara tively limited crop raised this year, resulting in an advance of nearly one hundred per cent on the old stock on hand.- How to Keep Hams. Every season more or less hams are destroyed by insects, or rendered too unpalatable to be eaten by decent people. By following this method the in sects can be entirely kept at a distance, and UJs very ;imple and within the reach of almost every farmer in the country. After the meat has been well cured by pickle and smoke, take some clean ashes, free from bits of coal, moisten them with a little water, so that they will form a paste, or else just wet the hams a little and rub on the dry ashes. Rubbed in thoroughly, they serve as a capital insect protector and the hams can be hung up in the smoke-house or wood-chamber without any danger of molesta tion. .' . ' . r . V, Preserving Green Fodder. a A method ot preserving green fodder, such as turnip tops, beet tops, or other succulent vegetables, has been in use for many' years ; in Europe, by which, this green fodder is kept in good condition 1 for six or twelve months.' A trench two to four feet deep is dug in a dry ppot in the field, and the tops of the roots, carefully gath ered when free -from rain or dew, are thrown into it. .They are very compactly pressed down, and when the pit is filled some straw, is laid upon the fodder and the 'earth is heaped over Ihe whole., - In this man ner this product, which is gen- erally wasted in a great' meas ure, is utilized. On one1 occa sion the) writer saw one of these pits opened in the Spring which had been filled and covered up the Fall previous.., The fodder, which was' leaves ,'of "fiugar beets, was as fresh to . all ap pearance as when gathered, and the cows to, which it was fed ate it with avidity. Salt is generally . sprinkled, "upop the fodder and aids in its preserva tion,' . . -. , ,i. I ',1' ' i 1 ; i '7 1 .. J- it v L ; .:.
