' There are certain humble walks of art In which excellence consists simply in a faithful and truthful imitation of nature, in which the excellence is of a kind of which common peoplo become good judges. It takes very little artistic skill or sonno to Judge whether a stalk of blue gentian Is faithfully painted, or the copy of a bunch of applo-blouoms Is true to the model of its great originals. A host of such simple Inexpensive ornaments are given by Trang In his lithography. A bunch of apple-blossoms, a blue gentian, so represented as to excel average paint ing, forms a charming domestic ornament, unpretending, unammuous, ana always beautiful. Never do our hearts cease to thrill when the tlmo of year comes round for their fair originals to smile on us, and never can wo loso the sense of beauty In their Imitations. It Is ono of tho signs of the mlllonlum that real good art, correct and pure as far M It Is buing made tho Inheritance of tke millien, as it is now being done by the chromo lithograph ; and we have little sympathy with the scornful style In which some eolf important art-critlos have con domnod or ridiculed efforts that are bring ing beauty and p'.oasure to so many thous and homes that otherwise, poverty would keep bare.

A couple of hundred dollars is oft on spent in small sums, five dollars at a time, in little orna ments and frames and captivatiug objects, which aro always breaking and being lost. The same two hundred, bravely invested in buying the first careful pioture of a rising artist, may be a great help both ways to the buyer and tho artist: the artist whom it hcine into notice : and the family, who gain a picture which becomes a standard and rally lng-potnt lor other plo turcs. Mrt. Stout, in Ationtie Alinanaa. Josh Billings on Milk. I wakt to say something. I want to say sumthlng in rcferonco to milk as a fertilizer. There are various kinds ov milk.Ther iz sweet milk, sour milk, skim milk, butter milk, cow milk, and the milk of human kindness, but the mostest best milk la the milk that hazaant the moat water in it. Butter milk UA Ut tho best for butter. MiUt is spontaneous and has done more to encourage the growth of human k folks than any other likwid. Milk is lacteal ; it is also acoustic, while under the patronage or the milk vender. Milk is luistorlous. Cokernut milk hat never been solved vet. - Milk iz also another name for human Kuiuncssv . . -Milk and bread is a pleasant mixtur. Sometimes if milk u aloud to stand too long, a scum rises to the surface, which it apt td scare folks that live in citlos, but it duuient tollow that the milk is nasty. This scum is called kreme by folks who innaou me aunuy. Kreme in the parent of butterand but ter is 75 cents a pound. The, moat kommon milk in ese, without doubt, is skim milk ; skim milk is made by skimming the milk, which li consid ered sharp practise. Milk is ' obtained from cows, hoes. woodchux, rats, sheep, squirrels, and all other animals that have hair. Bnalx and gce&e don't give milk. 1 forirot to state, in conclusion, that cow milk, if well watered, brings ten cents per Causes of Sudden Death. 'Vkmy few of the Hidden deatht which are said to arise from diseases of the heart do nail r trite from that cause. To ascer tain the real origin of sudden deaths experiment has been tried in Europe and reported to a scientific congress at Btras burg. Klxty slx cases cf sudden death were made the subject of a thorough post mortem examination: in these case only two were found who had-dled from disease or the heart. Nine out of sixty-six had died from anonlexv. while there were forty-six cases of congestion of the lungs that is, the longs were so full of blood that they could not work, not having roots enough for a sufficient quantity of air support life. The causes that prod uce con gestion of the longs are cold feet, tight clothing, costivj bowels, tilting tUU until chilled after being warmed with labor or rapid walk, golog too tuddealv from close room bio the air, espedally after speaking, and sudden, depressing newt operating on the blood, Those causes eudden death beins known, aa evidence them may erve to lengthen many valuable lives, which would otherwise be lost under the verdict of heart complaint. That dis ease. It tunpoeed to be Inevitable and in curable ; hence, many may not take pains they would to avoid sudden deatU iney knew it lay in uieir power. tct: D ..... if Thompson's Road Steamer. an to a a of of If ' The , following description of the now tteam wagon for common rnads wat given in a paper read before the Drill)) Associ ation by Prof. Archef. - It contains a more complete description than thoso which have appeared hitherto, and all informa tion concerning an Invention which prom ises to be of especial value on tho prairie of the Northwest, will be interesting: This road steamer lias wheels made of a material which at nest eight does not look a very liU'y substance to stand the heavy work tliey are suhjactnd to. The tyres aro made of bands of vulcanized India-rubber, about 12 In. wide and S In. thick. Incredible as it may appear, this soft and elastic substance not only carries the great welg'il of tho road steamer with out injury, lut tboy pass over newly broken road metal, broken flints, and all kinds of sharp things, without oven leav ing a mark on the india-rubber ? They do not sink into tlie road In the least decree. They past over stones lying on the surface without, crushliur thcui... Those toft and elastic tyres r.semblo in some degree tho feet of an elephant. - lloth tho ramct nnd the elephant Lave very largo soft cushions Instead or haM liools. and no other ani mal can stand so much walking over hard roads as tliey can accomplish. The power required to propel tne road steamer it very much less than what would be required if the tyres were hard and rigid. They do not crush nor sink, into the roadway. Tho machine, as it were, floats along on tho ludift-rubher, and all tho power used in crushing and grinding the stones under rigid tyre is entirely saved. It might at flna sight be supposed mat it would take a groat deal ot power to pro pel a heavy carriage on soft tyres ; but if the tyres are elastic as well as soft, tho power uoed u compressing tne tyre in front of the wheel is nearly all given back as the elastic tyre expands behind the wheel. Tim India-rubber tvres rcoulro sen reel V any more power to propel them over soft bad roads or over loose gravel roads than on tho best paved streets. Tho reason of this is quite obvious ; tney aa not sins: iuio roads and do not grind down, the stones in me icaai acgrce. , ,, . - .. Trials have been made i.t lcttn by run nine tho road steamer acrose a toft crass field. In which an . ordinary steam carriage would certainly have mink. Tho way it ran through the grass without oven Icav- lug a track, was very, remarkable; nut when it made tor a part of tho field which had just boon covered with looso earth to the depth of 1 ft. or 3 ft., and ran straight across, the surprise of thoso present was great indeed. The., weight of the road steamer is between four or five tons : and yet tho wheels in passing over tho loose earth compressed it to littlo that a walk ing stick could easily be pushed down in tho track oi the wheels without any exer tion. It is quite clear that one of the great difficulties farmers had to contend with In uslnK steam engines in ploughing it now removed, for the road steamer will run through any field, even when newly ploughed, without any dllUculty. After various evolutions, showing the ability of the road steamer to run about where there were no roads, it passed out into tho street, and, taking a large. oinuimis.iuii oi pas tongert In tow, it proceeded up tho lion nlngton road lo Messrs. Uibson A AY oik cr s mills, where it toosr a large wagon, weighing, with its load of flour, about ten tons, up a etcep .... lano full . of holes ' and ruts, and rising with gradient of ono in twontv. It Was obvious that the road steamer was able to do a great deal morn than it had to do in this trial. The bite on the road is some thing marvelous, and tho easy way In which it floated along on its soft and elas tic tyroe was very curious. When riding on the road steamer the feeling is UkQ what would be experienced in driving over a smooth, toft grass lawn. There it absolutely no jarring at all. Thus tne machinery is snared the severe trials aris ing irom tne mows ami juiia xo wnicn it is subjected wnen luouou-u on common wheels. There ls,-tncredlble as it may appear, no appoaranco of wear on tho india-rubber tyres. The origlual surface which the rubber had when it loll tho manufactory is still visible. The steamer which was tho subject of the experiments had another specialty be sides the wheuls. It was fitted with a ver tical boiler, which is ono of the most eco nomical Bteam generators yet produced. Kxternally the boiler looks very much like others of vertical construction ; but internally it is entirely different, A glance at a sectional drawing of it will make its advantages apparent to practical men. Its powers may bo illustrated by giving the result of a series of trials made in contrast with a common locomotive boiler, and an upright boiler of the ordinary kind. The latter evaporated 3 80 It of water for each pound of inferior Scotch coal burned : the locomotive boiler 4.13 lb. of water for each nouud of coal; and the new boiler 4.t) lb. of water for a like ex penditure of fuel. In contrasting the heating surface the new boiler had a still greater superiority. With fl;f ft. of heating surface it evaporated US cubic feet ot water per hour. The common vertical boiler, with 73 ft. of surface, evaporated 14 cubio feet of water per hour; and the locomotive boiler with 1U7 ft. of heating surface, evaporated 13 ft. of water per hour. Thlt shows the new boiler to pos sess a very decided advantage. The tractive powers ot the machine have surpassed all expectation, it wat constructed to drag an omnibus, weighing, with Its load or (say) thirty passengers, about four tont on a level road, nut us powers are to greatly in excess of this task, that no load yet placed behind it ess lully tested lis power. An opportunity wat ottered which was oonndenuy ex npr.tod would show the limits of its enna bilitlea. A huge steam boiler, weighing with its truck between twelve and thir teen tons, had to be dragged up a hill rising one in twelve. The little road steamer wat chained to the trock, and steadily drew the great boiler to the top of iuo mil, mo inuia-ruuour wmtw ihuuk the ground in the most perfect manner: there was not the least sign of slipping. The boiler was drawn from the workt of Messrs. Hawthorne & Co., along the Junction road, and then up the hilly lion nlngton road, to the flour mills of Messrs. Gibson ifc Walker. In its progress the road steamer had to draw iu great load over all kinds of roads. Nothing seemed to aCect the bite of the Indlarubber tyre. The road was so slippery from the frost that hortes had the greatest difficulty in keeping on their legs, but uo difficulty was found in going over the glared surface with the India rubber wheels. JudU rub ber doe not tlip even on ice, as may be easily ascertained by trying.lo kiide in a patrol maia-ruDoer gojoenes. A number of trials have lust been com pitted with a powerful road steamer which has been constructed for hauling wagons loaded with coffee over the hilly roads In the Island of Ceylokv Tit road eteamer has two cylinders, each 7 luck diameter by 10 inch stroke, and a vertical "pot" boiler U feet fiiamcteT by 7 g feet high. The engine is arranged by means of spur gearing to make either tlx or fifteen revo 1 unions, U city be desired, tor e.rh rcvolu ft I e o i r i i a i '; tlon of the driving wheels. Thit road st amor weighs, with water and coal for two hours' work, about 8$ tons. It was intended to haul twelve tons gross weight np gradients of one in tixteen. It was found on trial that it was capable of doing great deal more than the stipulated amount of work. It was first tested by f'olng np a very crooked and steep street , n Edinburgh, viz., Cockburn etrcot, with ' wagon in tow weighing 2 tons. This street rises with a gradient lu tome placet of one in eight, but the road steamer went up with the greatest case. . 1 ') Tho next trial was of a very severe kind. Four heavy wagons, constructed to carry Rtf tons of coals each, were at tached to tne road stomnr r, Buoli wtgon weighed when empty 2 tons. With this train in tow the new steamer ran from Leith to Now Usttle collieries, a distance of about eleven miles. Tho wagons were then loaded with ft' tons of coals each, and tho road steamer drew tho wholo four from New Uattlo to Leith over roada with gradients rising one lu sixteen in several places. The total weight ol coals was twonty-ono tons; if to this the weight of the four wagons is added it makes a gross weight or thirty-two. ions, ana including the weight of the road steamer tho weight of tho wholo train was .upwards of forty tons. With this train of 110 fu long no dif ficulty was found in passing through tho most crowded streets of Edinburgh and Leith in the middle of the day and in the midst of a great stream of ordinary truffle. The India rubber tvres are durable bo- youd all conception, and thoy are not in tho least auected Dy citncr ncai, com, or moisture In commenting on this new road steamer tho Wetttrn Railroad Uaicttt says : When we recall the numbor of years which have claps .'d since the first applica tion of the power of steam, or even since its first application to looomotion, it seems strange that it has not hitherto been made more generally available.' we are biiii dependent almost entirely upon draught animals, which eat grain and nay whether they aro employed or hue, to piougu our Jhrnis, to reap our flelos, to move and operate ncany all farm machinery, and to transport the products of .the farm to their primary market. Wo are dependent upon them, too, lor tho transportation oi an prlvato carriages, and many a merchant feeds a horse a year for tho sake of a ser vice which does not occupy sixty hours. We are. In fact, compelled touso an engine which requires fuel to keep It in existence as well as to work it. - Illthorto all engines intended for com mon roads or fields have failed bocauso of the difficulty of adapting a solid, round wheel to a varying suriaceoi various ma terials. When the road wot rough and rocky . the wheels would slip, and conse quently the vehicle would not move. On any road of ordinary roughness the force of the engine scorned bo divided between tearing tho wheels to pieces and tearing tho road to pieces that very little was left to piave tho Joad, The problum which seoruedjifmpiu Mier u locomotive was made succoihTuI. has yet s baliiud tne Inventive genius of the age. : ' ' The machine hero described certainly Slvcs better promlso than any of its pro ecessors. Indeed, it seems probable that it is tho Ion? sought solution of the prob lem ; to find an engine which can bo moved over any surface practicable for horses, and which can be economically applied to small loads as well as toe large - ones. - If it Is what the scienllOo men who iiave ex amined It and reported upon it believe il to be, it may make a revolution in loco motion and in those mechanloal operations which are accompanied by locomotien such as ploughing, mowing, and the like which will equal In importance the change produced by the steamboat and the railroad. ' N-waoro in the world wlfl 'such an' In vention bo more valuable, and nowhere in the world can such an Invention be more easily employed than on the prairies of the .Northwest. Much machinery is eco nomically used where the grades are easy knd the angles to be turned few that is, on large and level fields. What shou'd prevent tho road steamer which Professor Archer describes from drawing, behind it a gang of ploughs, turning up pralrlo soli for a breadth of six or eight feet, and in one day completing fifteen or twenty acres with tho help of two men work Which would require eight or ten men and at least twice as many horses as we work now f Why, too, should we not havo min aturo engines of one, two or three horse power, lor the propulsion of private car riages horse which would need no food except a pint or two of petroleum, and that only at tho tlmo of the drive? The economy of fuel over food cannot be too strongly lusistcd upon. With liv ing organisms we are compelled to pro duce power doily whether we use it or not. J-.very larmer wno nat a stable full of horses "eating their heads off " all winter can appreciate this. It is to be booed that some oi our large farmers will procure ono of these engines and thoroughly test it, ltoth by saving tho labor of horses and the labor of meu they may bo of the greatest value in the Northwest. If fully successful they would give an Impulse to production which utld in a short time make iruitiui ncids of our boundless prairies and fill the world with plenty. 1 a Music. I confess that I have no patience with the ignorant outcry against the Opera, With me music is closely allied to religion, sacred in its nature, ennobliug and purify ing In IU influences. It was the first sound that greeted the birth of our blessed Lord. Il will be the first sound you and I will hear when wo get to Heaven. I hope it will be the last sound 1 shall hear when I shut my eyes and say good-night to the world and go olf alone Into the darkness. It it the universal language of the world. It is the only form of art which pierces the veil and reaches to the Infinite. It gives birth to the highest of aspirations. It conveys the deepest and tenderest of sympauuea. li speaks to me neari as uie spoken word canuot. Mendelssohn wrote to his sister In music and the technical signs of the score, when Interpreted on the piano, were fuller of love and tendemeet than any words could have been. Beet hoven's scores are not alono mere melody and harmony. Beautiful either may be, but more beautiful, more grand are the suggestions they give you of something more than earthly something above ana beyond thit earth.

I Sore Backs on Horses. A sTvora horse with a sore back it fre quently shorn of half his strength. A sore back Is usually the result of a miserable harness. Yet, in many instances, the bank-baud is made too short, or is buckled up too tight, so that the traces at the back hand are raised above a direct line from tho liamos to the whl Ilia-tree. When this is the case, the back-band, whon tho hbrse draws, is pressed down with force on the back ; anil unless the pad is soft, or the harness be made with a patent back, a wound will be made, which will be diffi cult to heal, so long as the harness that made the wound is employed on the ani mal. Whon a horse has a Bore back, and it seems necessary to keep him in the harness,- let the . back-band be removed entirely - or let it be lengthened, and fustoned a fow inches back of the wound. It wilt be very easy to determine whether a, back-band it liable to iujurethe animal's back by observing, when ho draws, whether the portion of the harness directly above the back is drawn down forcibly or is lifted clear from the back. A wound on the back of a horso is fre quently irritated bo 'long by the rough harness that it -becomes -almost In curable. 'A fresh "Wound, if not kept bleeding by the rubbing of the harness, will heal perfectly in two or three weeks in warm weather without any other medicine than soapsuds. But an old wound that has tried to heal after the scab hat been rubbed off several times requires an application of burnt alum, pulverized to cleanse it of tho " proud flesh." The best remedy is a jrrmeitlitA. The driver is the one on whom the blame Bhould rest, tor allowing .horse to have a sore back. If the harness is not right, lot it be made right before a horse is re quired to work in it. It is barbarous to work an animal in a harness that will gall the flesh. Better cut an old collar and harness into fragments and bury the pieces beno&th a grapevine than to con tinue td nee such fixtures as will wound a' faithful beast of burden. Furthermore, when a sore back has been allowed to ul cerate, . frequently , discharging Ichorous matter, one of the most elllcaclous reme dies la, to bathe the wound for two eucces- a!.. linnM In Tun r. .... rtmi .1 n a n i t biiv u.iuib iu) am. fun .uniiu. uivi, uri. and after the "bathing, wash the affected part wtlk-.a. solution iQf . aaitnetre and spirits of turpentine, prepared as follows : Put.one'qnarteroT-a pound of 'saltpotre4 ami nan a pintoi turpenuno lncn a bottle; shake up well before using ; apply to the wound three times a day with a feather.

Tiiosk who aro opposed to book-farm' lng are requested to read the following, and give us their opinion : . There was a farmer once who hesitated not to hurl all manner of invectives against book-farming and thpse who con suited books for advice. By long experi ence and practical observation, he had be come quite successful in the culture of grapes and trees. ' Ills fields were clean and fair, and highly productive. His trees were vigorous, well adjusted, and profitable. In conversation with a friend, he related his experience In raising grapes and trees, entering into the minutest details, tome- times, becoming quite eloquent when de scribing his victories over tho enemies which infest them. ' His knowledge," he said, " was gained by dint of application, by actual experi ence and hard labor. It was none of your book knowledgo, written by mon who know nothing about farming." f " Well," said his friend, " If all this val uable information gained by assiduous labor and observation of so many years, and which you have sxv clearly described. were written out and published, which would you nave a young and luexperi- enced man do take this as he finds it from your pen, or go through the sanio tedious process that you nave gone through with, including all IU vexations and losses r The question puzzled him, and he was silent for a moment ; but was obliged at last to confess that, after all. there was much that was valuable in books, because combining and relating the resulU and experience of practical cultivators. Mending a Rag Carpet. Mhm. II. M. II., of Columbia county, Pennsylvania, tends a number of sugges tions in matters relating to economy in the nousenoid, oi wnicn we at present give the following : ' One moring last winter, as Henry took tome hot coals out of the sitting room stove to start a fire in the kitchen, be dropped nearly half of them on my new rag carpet, and burned seven or eight holes from ono to two inches in diameter. At first I did not know what to do, but toon made up my mind to try to mend them, and I think 1 tuceeeded ad mirably, for when they were done. they could not bet teen half way aeroat the room, and they would never be noticed by any one unless hts attention was called to it. I first cut both rags and warp out at far as they were the least bit tender with the heat, then went to the rag drawer, and selected rags as near the color of those burned as possible, and carefully joined every rag burned with one of its own siae and color. I was lucky enough to have yarn like the warp, for I made the carpet myself. Then I served the warp the tame wav. weavinr it in the raga with a darn ing-needle. It U rather difficult getting tne warp just right, unlets vou know now Begin by putimg in every alternate thread ; thia brings them all over and under the same rags, the first going over.

Tub practice of storing large quantities Of vegetables in the cellar of a farm house, even if it is of sufficient capacity, it very pernicious. The process of decay which commences very soon after they are put in. generates poisonous gasses, which can but prove detrimental to the denizens of the house. The necessity of a good root cellar is fult on all farms where roots are raised for the more economical keeping of stock, and nothing on a farm is more useful than such a cellar. A sandy hill side, where it can be found, is the most convenient location, and in such a place a cellar can be con strncted verv cheap. . We believe that farmers would find such a cellar to pny -well, if for no other use than for the temporary storage of pota toes. A man who has such a cellar in a side hill, where the potatoes can be dumped In from the upper tide, can bid defiance to tho weather, securing his crop as dug, to be afterwards barreled or loaded for market at his leisure. In no way can patatoes be harvested to rapidly at by flicking them up ts dug, without sorting, oading them into a cart, and hauling them at once to the cellar, to be afterwards sorted. In weather unsuitable for out door work. . .-, ,. in -.! .- t It the market it unsatisfactory in the fall, the crop can remain until spring, and then be removed. If the cellar can be made near, or in connection with the barn, to much tbo better, and we advise an farmert who have not such a cellar already to lose no time in constructing one. Dig into the side hill, throwing the dirt in a convenient place for banking ; build the wall with stone, it handy: if not plank the sides or put un slabs. Make Btrong roof of plank, that will hold earth enough to keep out the frost Put in your roots, and if they are to be removed be fore winter, nothing more will need to be done. 1 If theyi are to ' remain through winter, cover the roof with a foot of earth and straw. and U is safe.: i - t s r v It is an experiment worth? trying," and one which, we think, no one will regret making.-. mertoaa farmer. The Cattle Disease. I Now TrtAT the season of frosts has ar rived there is a cessation of this terrible disease, which has been so wide-spread and disastrous to our native stock. The excitement in a measure is over and now is the time to take a calm and comprehen sive view of the whole matter, and adopt some measures for protection which shall forever prevent a repetition of what we have had this and prevtous years. As much as it was against the Judgment and belief of many prominent men In this State last summer, that Texas cattle had anvthlng to do with the disease, we think thatnow, with the experience of the past year before them, there can be found none who doubt their being tne cause, whatever the different views of the manner of the communication may be. . -.Tliis matter settled, what shall be done? Shall-ttae -prohibition laws remain on our statute books, to , be broken as they have been the past two years f Or shall these laws be intelligently amended, so that what U Gone may be safely done f a' That foreign stock will come to this State in some shape seems to us certain, from the very fact that we are not pro ducing, and cannot produce, the neces sary amount in; our own State. Investi gations show that not less than 100,000 head of Southwestern stock have come into our State this season, besides all that from the SUtes Immediately west of us. Our wants for home, eastern and packers' uses are now from 850,000 to 800,000 head per year. The cattle that have been marketed since the war have been at least a year too young to make the greatest profit from mem, ana mis win continue upui uie supply is equal to tho demand. From what has been seen in the past seasons, it it evident that at certain sea sons of the year, cattle coming irom par ticular districU of the southwest, are im bued with latent principles of disease whicbibv a change of climate and the fatigue of journeys, are thrown off in such quantities at to endanger native stock. Which this particular district is, or what the precise nature of the food, or other in fluences producing the disease, are not ful ly known ; but enough Is known to lead to the belief that the district from which this infected stock comes is small, and that the time in which they can Impart the malady is comparatively short after their leaving their native climate. with inn pTnenencfl of ina nasi ana former seasons it seems certain that these cattle can be brought into the north with perfect safetr late in the season, and that this time must be adopted, for handling them, if we expect to escape the disasters of tho past season. The losses ot the present year have been large, and fallen principally upon the Doorer classes who can ill afford .it, and J e are glad to see that some of the large oalera are coming forward with praise worthy liberality, and settling with inoee who have lost by their stock, and we re gret that anv are found who refuse appeals and defy the losers. It would seem that policy alone would influence these dealers and carriers to eome forward and liberally settle with the losers, and trust all will do so without waiting legal decisions. Our Bute laws need revision, at well those of neighboring SUtet equally Inter ested, and we are glad to tee a call for convention of Bute delegates to meet Springfield, I1L, Dec 1st, the object which will be to fix on some nnlform leg islation to be adopted by all the SUtet Unless tome safe and uniform law gov ernlng the handling of thlt ttock can had, and in such shape that all will it, we are for entirely excluding ttock south of a fixed line of latitude, 33 or ao degrees, from entering our Dor ders. iYuirw fanwr.

" Ybt three -days they were kebt on view at th M.rtr. i-rhiM. uon, and at v o clock on Sunday morning, with one gTand flutter, they sailed off for their destination. The start had but a momentary interest, for sweeping wildly up Into the strong cnrrcnU of a southerly and autumnal gale they were soon lost to sight. Scarce three minutes elapsed after opening the cages be lore not a pigeon vm seen. Subsequently I learned that about fifty, who were overpowered by the gale, or who did not know their way, lit on the house ot our Consul here, and at Rouelle a lot also alighted. As it was, the leaders of the racers did not arrive at Brussels until after three o'clock in the afternoon, whereas if they had made their usual time they should have been In at a few minntet past One o'clock. These carriers belong to Belgian societies, who make a speciality of carrier-training more for past-time than profit. '" ' .. Carriers can and do often attain a space of 120 miles per hour, and when well trained never fail to make a straight course unless driven off by a hawk, when they are sometimes so confused as to lose their way, and it may be days before they find it. Sir John Boss, the Arctic explorer, dispatched a pair of young pigeons on the 0th or 7th of October, 1850, from Assist ance Bay, a little to the west of Welling ton Sound, and on the 18th of October s pigeon made IU appearance at the dove cote in AvTshlre. Scotland, from whence Sir John had taken them, The distance between the two places is about 2,000 miles. The dovecote wat under repair at this time, and the pigeons belonging to It bad been removed, but the servants of the house were struck with the appear ance of the stranger. , After a short stay it went to the pigeon-house of a neighbor ing proprietor, where it was caught and sent back to the lady who originally owned it She at once recognized it as one of those which she had given to Sir John Ross ; but to put the matter to a test, it was carried to the pigeon house, when out of the many niches it.directly went to the one in which it had been batched. r I am well acquainted with a gentleman a resident of Connecticut, who was noted for the fine brood of carriers he kept. A negro servant in his employ sold one of his hock to a gentleman- wno resided in Canada. This transaction was unknown to the proprietor. One day he noticed his pet bird resting on the gable of the barn, and felt assured it had performed more than an ordinary Journey, but the servants could not explain to elm anything satis factory. A few days afterward he re ceived a letter from the Canada cootie man, which stated that he had paid $15 to the other gentleman's servant for a car- ner-pigeon which had flown ; and sup posing that he would return- home, he wrote, asking him to forward the bird by the first opportunity. A few months afterward another of the flock was disposed of in a like manner, and the bird carried in safety to Albany, where, when thougnt to be sufficiently weaned and domesticated, it was let out into one of tho rooms of the Stanwix Hall. Chancing to open a window, the bird took advantage and started for iu old home in Connecticut, where it arrived in a few hours. The purchaser, having become very much attached to the bird, wrote for it, and in this manner the facta were ascertained, as I have related them. During Webster's time, and on the oc casion of one of his great speeches in Boston,, some of the New York papers sent carrier-pigeons to your city to bring' home the speech. As soon as delivered and prepared, it wat attached to the bird. and he was started. Unfortunately, "he encountered a hawk, and after a deal of maneuvering, he succeeded in eluding his pursuer, and tired, exhausted, and having lost his way, he settled In the barn-yard of Judge , who, attracted by the parcel be had on hts legs, caught him, and, alter reading the speech, scarce delivered two hours, he tookjthe bird to Bridgeport sent the speech forward to iu destination. Before the day of telegraphs, the carrier- pigeon was somewhat extensively used me enterprising newspapers, u i am not. mistaken, the New York Juurnol of Com merce, Courier and Enquirer, and the Her ald relied upon them for the transmission of certain kinds or news. .Except by the meeting of hawks, they seldom, if ever, fail to go straight to their destination. Naturalists have always been puzzled to account for the peculiar powers which en able this bird to find iu way home from immense distances.. The majority seem to agree that it is enabled to do this mainly by its strength of vision. The generally accepted theory is that at home the pig eons are accustomed to mount to a very great height, and to perform at a lofty ele vation circles constantly increasing in di ameter; that when let loose at a moderate distance, say a hundred miles from home, they mount as usual, and with far reaching glance recognize tome object which they had been accustomed to see In their home Journeys ; this object is Bufflcient guide, and the birds instantly shape their course for it. The attachment of the carrier-pigeon to iU birth-place well understood, and to this, in conjunc tion with iu wonderful strength of vision, must be attributed the certainty of its flight homeward. When desired to per form lonirer lournevs, to long that glimpse of familiar landmarks is ont the question, vney must, De careiuny train ed and made acquainted with at least part of the route which they have to pass over. The carrier-pigeon Is known by a large wart-llko excrescence under each eye, k hlch increases in size as it grows older. At a certain age these must be pared down, or the bird cannot see directly ahead. In color they are blue. A true blooded carrier-pigeon should not have single white feather about him. I have heard tome talk of training pigeons for the transmission of naval message, that in the event of a war, ahipa off. the coast would have ready and almoel sure communication with the shore. Hence, for example, a cruiser on our coast could have pigeons trained for Wishlngton for the Navy Department dispatches, ethers for Boston, New York, Philadelphia and Hampton roads, and by this means the off shore squadron or cruiser could give time ly notice of the approach of an enemy send ror retntorcemenu or aid in one-nun-dredth of the time it would take if the vessel herself was obliged to go In. They might be a great auxiliary on our passen ger steamers, and in event of an accident how readily the newt might be tent and the location pointed out so that succor could be tent quickly and to the exact spot. It It certainly practicable and by means costly. Suppose the China was disabled in lat, 44.20, Ion. 37:20 West carrier-pigeon could be tent, one to New York and one to Liverpool. Of course the papers would be apprised of the fact, and all the outgoing steamers from both tides the Atlantic would be steered at near to thit spot at possible, and thus probably a valuable cargo of life and property would be rescued inside of four days. Whereat under the present system we should wait for dayt or even wekt in great anxiety hear from the vessel. In other cases it might be so that the Tea sel could only survive her Injuries for limited period, a time too abort te admit of relief by the ordinary course of things. The carrier would here be worth hit weight in dlkuionds. I throw out suggestion not aa a greenhorn in nautical things, but aa one wno (irmly believes that the carrier-pigeon would be of great prac tical value, and especially to avert many of the horrors which to often thrill the hearts o the people qa th sides of thf Aiianuc Hundreds of vessels are now afloat whose deck-houses may be teen the little houses of pet dogs, pet monkeys, parrots, and even pigeons. 1 have seen whalemen tame " boobvs " and sea gulls.

First. We tire tn Instance where a pigeon hat flown 2,000 mlkm. That's two-thirds of the way from New York to Liverpool j tay at the rate of 00 miles per honr. which the car rier would fir. It wnnld take onlv 83 hours aenver a message rrom that point, tnat to tend it to New York, anil at Liver pool it only 1,000 miles distant it would take only lC'i hours to deliver the mea- ssge In that port. Second. At hawks are rarely, if ever, seen at sea, it is not at all likely the carrier would be Interfered with. Third. The cost of them, and feeding, is but a mere trifle. They would increase on shipboard nnd would pay for them selves a million times over. LE VOYAGEUR. Scientific Daring.

Emerging from this, the sun shone bright! v on the air-shin: the sky over head was of the clearest and deepest blue, and below lay cloudland an immeasurable expanse oi cloud, whose surface looked as solid at that of the earth not wholly lost to view. Lofty mounuina and deep, dark ravines, appeared below the peaka and sides of those cloud-mountains next the sun, glittered like snow, but casting shadows at black as If they were solid rock, ip Toee tne Daitoon with tremendous yelocltv. Four miles above earth a pigeon was let loose I it dropped down through the air as if it had been a stone. The air was too thin too enable it too fly. It was as if a bark laden to the deck were to pass from the heavy waters of the sea into an inland unsaline lake ; the bark would sink at once in the thinner water. Up, up, still higher I What a allencn profound t The heights of the sky were as still as the deepest depths of the ocean, where, as was found during the search for the lost Atlantic cable, the fine mad lies as unstirred from year to year, as the dust which imperceptibly gathers on the furniture of a deserted house. No sound, no life only the bright sunshine falling through a sky which it could not warm. Up five miles above earth 1 higher than the inaccessible summit of Chlmbo razo or Dawanglri. Despite the sunshine, everything freezes. The air grows too thin to support lite, even lor a lew min utes. Two men only are in thaty adven turous balloon the one steering the air ship, the other watching the scientific in struments, and recording them with a rapidity bred of long practice. Suddenly, as the latter looks at his instruments, his sight - grows dim ; he takes a lens to help his sight, and only marks from the falling ba rometer that they are rising rapioiy. a flask of brandy lies within a foot of him ; he tries to reach it, but his arms refuse to , obey his will He triet to call on his com rade, who has gone up into the ring above; a whisper in that deep silence would suffice but no sound comes from his litis he is voiceless," T.ie steersman comes down into the car ; he sees his com Tade in a swoon, and feels his own senses failing him. lie saw at once that life and death hung upon a few moments. He seized or tried to seize tho valve, in order to open it and let out the gas. His hands are purple with intense cold they are paralyzed. they will not respond to his will. He seized the valve with his teeth, it opened a little-Mnce, twice, thrice. The balloon iiuur-viivo, ,nn,o, ' "" began to descend.

Unce a Weec A Modern Samson. a is a of a a so or A to a In Dr. Alfred Booth's Reminiscences of Springfield, Masa, occurs the following account of Deacon Hitchcock: "Born in 1722, in the North Main street region, he removed, while a young man, into the east part of the town, now known as South Wilberham, married in 1743, and was the first deacon of the church there, continuing in office many years, lie is well remembered bv the Hon. Oliver B. Morris, as occupying the deacon's seat at meetings, his whitened locks giving him quite a venerable appearance. During long life he was of wonderful strength, agility, and endurance, and had he lived in the palmy days of Greece, he would have been a worthy competitor, in the games oi those days. , It is related of him that on one occasion, a man riding by the field, where he was at work, and boasting of the SDeed of his horse, wat challenged by the deacon, who said he could mn to Springfield quicker on foot than the horse with his rider could. The test resulted in the triumph of the deacon, distance ten miles, time not stated. He would lift cart-load of hay by getting his shoulders under the axle, in a stooping posture, and throw an empty cart over with one hand bv taking hold at the end of the axle-tree. When loading grain in a cart he would take a bag by the teeth, and with a swing and the aid of a pnsh from the knee, throw it into the cart. He had double teeth front, and would hold a tenpenny nail by them ana break it on witn nis angers. He used to say he did not know a man he could not whip or run awav from. The day he was seventy years old he remarked to nis wile tnat wnen tney were nrst mar ried he was wont to amuse her by taking down his hat with hit toes, and added : ' wonder if I eouhl do it now ?' Thereupon he lamped from the floor, took oif hit hat with his toes, came down on his feet like a cat, bung un tne nat on tne nail, turned to the table, asked a blessing and ate the repast then ready. Thb other day a poorly clad urchin picked up a portmonnale lnadrertantly dropped Dy a richly dressed lady on street in Buffalo, N. Y and, running after her, apprised her of the loss. ''Mercy me I" cried the lady, eagerly snatching the article, " there Is over a hundred dollars in that portmonnaiel" and, forgetting all about the honest-minded little chap, who stood shivering In his rags, she looked to asanre herself that none or the money waa miss ing. Finding that all was right, she turned to go, when, happening to espy the lad, bhe carelessly toesed him an apple, saying: " Here, little boy, here is an apple for your honest.'1 ; - - - ' --ix There is a carrier of the New York Sun who has not missed carrying his route a single day in 17 years, tlis name Abram Henderson, and his route lies Williamsburgh and iu vicinity. But the most interesting fact connected with Mr. Henderson's career as a carrier is, that he has made by his occupation the comfort able sum oi ,100,000.
