eleven or twelve hundred pounds, ma)
net assured he has a horse all work, and
a bargain well worth getting hold of.
Mr. Pratt is now seventy years of age
and has always been an admirer of fine
horses, and Is a competent judge. There
are in Mr. P.'s lectures many valuable
hiote. We give two or three:
CareoJ lionet.—No horse eta ea
aure labor all the time. A few months
in pasture, after being high fed and work
ed for several years, will renew his ener­
gies, as stated periods of rest and recrea
tion will preserve the vital energies of

referei'et to ih« peculi*? excellence
of the horaea of New York, I might
•ay, that I have driven a pair two hun
dred and forty miles in three days, or
eighty miles per day, without injury.-—
Amongst the many hundreds, and per
haps, thousands, of drivers and teamsters
in my employ, I lud a slow moulded
man by the name of Dana Brown, who
drove for me some ten years, aad always
drew the largest loads in the same time,
and with less fatigue to his horses, than
any other driver I ever knew. His hor
sis would look better on the same feed
than those of any other, and they al
ways appeared in good condition, while
toose in charge of others gave unmistak
able evidence of improper usoge. For
ty, fifty, and even sixty hundred weight,
has he drawn over the Catskill moun
tains with one^pair of horses, and 1 am
only doing him an act of justice to say,
that he never woreouta lash, and hardly
a snapper in the whole time. Whilst
other teamsters had sick horses, his were
always in good condition. The whole
number of teams I had in one year, av
eraged in every three working days 2,-
600 pounds to Prattsville, and 3,000
pounds to Catskill, a distance of thirty
aix miles, making about two^nd a half
millions of pounds in all. mention
these facts as illustrating the great bene»
fit ol a good management of borees and
of roads.
In feeding a horse, should be re-
afmbered that corn has a tendency tu
make him slow, as may be witnessed in
the slow moving corn fed horses of Ohio.
Oats are more suitable to develope ail his
qualities, and from 4en to sixteen quarts
pg day ahould be given.

The following may bt dfefftyftfled
upon as a perfectly safe and convenient
mode of guarding the lungs while thresh
ing, as I have tested it for several years,
and never knew it to fail'—
Take a piece of fine sponge, about
two inches thick in the centre, and about
four incites broad cut out a little in the
centre, so that it will fit tlu nose and
mouth leaving it about thtee fourths of
an inch thick over the end ol the nose
and the mouth moisten it well and
squeeze it out, so aa to prevent its drip
ping fasten a string to the outei edge of
the sponge on each side of the face, and
tie it back of the head, and one can
work in a perfect smother for hours, I
might say days, without those disagree*
able sensations that are alwayj experi
enced without such precaution. This
will not obstruot the breath one-tenth
part so much as a piece of gauze will

rather give one dollar pei day for a gooc'
sponge, than to lend a ''"T'V'ng awhin"
