How to Have Good Cider. I < Professor Horsford, of Harvard Uni- i varsity, has recently published a recipe for improving and preserving cider, by means ] of which the progress of the vinous and ’ acetic fermentations may be arrested at , pleasure and the cider preserved in such a , state as may be desired. A correspondent ( ] of the Boston Journal says : Put the new cider in clean casks or i barrels, and allow it to ferment from one to three weeks, according as the weather • is cool or warm. When it has attained a I lively fermentation, add to each gallon three-fourths of a pound of white sugar, and let the whole ferment again until it possesses nearly the brisk, pleasant taste 1 which it is desirable should be perma- j nent. Pour out a quarter ounce of sulphite of lime for every gallon the cask contains. Stir until it is intimately mixed, and pour j the emultion into the liquid. Agitate the i contents of the cask thoroughly for a few minutes, and let it rest that the cider may settle. Fermentaiion may be arrested at once, and will not be resumed. It may be bottled in the course of a few weeks, or it may be allowed to remain in the cask and used on draught. If bottled it will become a sparkling cider, better thau what is called champagne wine. Professor Horsford, of Cambridge, was the first to use the sulphite of lime for this purpose, and to him is duo the credit of first calling attention to its usefulness.l It is in no respect deleterious, as the sul-1 phuric acid is entirely insoluble, and re- j mains at the bottom of the vessel. The writer has cider prepared in this j way two years since, which has remained j unchanged, and is now a beverage of un surpassed excellence. The sul phite of lime, not the sulp/tafes, must be used. Management, In Mapes’ Working Farmer, we find the annexed hints on the subject of this much neglected esculent. Our own expe-1 rience and observation agree with what is I here said, and we are sure the cultivator i of the parsnip, who is familiar with its nature, will also coincide in the sugges tions of our contemporary. Parsnips are materially improved by \ frequent freezing and thawing, and there- ( fore, no more of the crop should be taken ( up in the fall, than is required for fall J and winter sales or use; for those left in ] the ground during winter are materially improved in quality for spring use, besides increasing their quantity, as they continue to grow until arrested by “very winter. 0 i The digging of parsnips can be best I performed by the lifting subsoil plow, run i so deeply as not to cut off the tap-roots, J but merely to raise the whole mass of soil, j and thus loosen them so that they may be pulled out by their crowns. In addition to facilitating the gathering of the pars nips, this practice disintegrates the soil, so as to render its spring preparation for other crops much more readily perform ed. Parsnips, after having been frozen, form an exoelledt food for hogs; and in moderate quantities, alternating with car rots or beets for cows, fatting cattle, etc. In the island Guernsey, milk cows are nearly sustained during the winter on the parsnip. * Upon this island they grow in great perfection, and give an immense yield. We have raised what a Cqjpimttee of the American Institute estimated at fif teen hundred bushels of parsnips on a sin gle acre. Therefore as an alternating crop, parsnips may be grows with profit. Their culture cleanses the ground of weeds, and leaves it in high tilth for oth er crops, while the parsnip does not re move an undue quantity of pabulum from soil. - Apples. There is scarcely an article of vegetable food more widely useful and more univer sally loved than the apple. Why every farmer in the nation has not an apple-or chard where the trees will grow at all, is one of the mysteries. Let every family lay in from two to ten or more barrels, and it will be to them the most economi cal investment in the whole range of cul inaries. A raw mellow apple is digested in an hour and a half; while boiled cab , bage requires five hours. The most beau tiful dessert which can be placed on the table, is a baked apple. If taken freely at breakfast with coarse bread and butter, without meat or flesh of any kind, it has an admirable effect on the general system, often removing constipation, correcting acidities, and cooling off febrile conditions, more effectually than the most approved medicines. If families could be induced to substitute the apple sound, ripe, and luscious, for the pies, cakes, candies, and other sweetmeats with which their chil dren are too often indiscreetly staffed, there would be a diminution in the sum total of doctors’ bills in a single year, suf ficient to lay in a stock of this delicious fruit for a whole season’s use.

From J. NEWTON BROWN, D. D., Editor of the Encyclopedice of Religious Knowledge. Although not disposed to favor or recommend Patent Medicines in general, through distrust of their ingredients and effects, I yet know of no sufficient reason why a man may not testify to the benefit he believes himself to have received from any simple preparation, in the hope that he may thus contribute to the benefit of others. I do this the more readily in regard to “Hoofland’s German Bitters,” prepared by Dr. C. M. Jack son, of this city, because I was prejudiced against them for years, under the impression that they were chiefly an alcoholic mixture. lam indebt ed to my friend Robert Shoemaker, Esq., for the removal of this prejudice by proper tests, and for encouragement to try them, when suffering from great and long continued debility. The use of three bottles of these Bitters, at the beginning of the present year, was followed by evident relief, and restoration to a degree of bodily and mental vigor which I had not felt for six months before, and had almost despaired of regaining. I there fore thank God and my friend for directing me to the use of them. J. NEWTON BROWN. Philad’a, June 23, 1860.
