Ctjcbin China Oranges.
There are in Cochin China over twenty varieties of oranges, everyone different in color, flavor and volume, yet every cue is wholesome and sweet. One of the best is called Cam-du-nony, that is sugar orange It is odoriferous, one of the size of the European orange, only a little flattened; its flesh reddish yellow. Another and somewhat inferior kind is Canesen, or orange of paradise ; of good quality, flesh and skin pale red, flavor similar to the stimulating acid of the lemon, but milder and less sour. The best is Qam bien , or king orange, so called because it is reserved for the Sovereign. There is no pro hibition against cultivating it, but it is . necessary to bide it; for no sooner is •the tree discovered, than the owner has to deliver the crop to the Sov ereign. Size and shape of it are sim ilar to a small European orange; akin green, as thin as the finest piece of silk, and nearly transparent, so that you can see the pink flesh inside through its filaments. When you out it open, it scents the air, and the taste, says a traveler, ia so agreeable, that no fruit can give you so delic ious a sensation as the eating of this King’s orange. —Courier des Etats Unis. Sweeping, and How and When it Should be Done. In dust is to be brushed off the surface and a light broom is bet ter than a heavy one. And in the first place, let all the delicate ornaments be put away. Let the bed, if it is a bed-room, be carefully covered, and have upholstered furniture also cov ered as far as possible. Then open the windows, and after scattering damp tea leaves over the floor, sweep clean, but lightly, use a small broom for the corners and around the stove. Taking up the dust as it is gathered tn little heaps is certainly neater than rolling the whole mass from one side of the room to the other. Let the lurniture then he dusted, wiping it with a clean dusting cloth : and many people forget entirely, when this cloth is filled, to give it a shake at the win dow. We speak ol this, for, surpris ing as it may seem, we have seen people nib chintz furniture covers and stuffed furniture with dusting cloths that were sirmdv filled with - din. vViien :i room lias been thoroughly swept, (lu-tel, amt the iittle oiuui snents reUirned to their ;.laces, one fee's that it is clean ami delightful to contemplate; but if this is the sitting room, or the dining room, the next thing a tew crumbs or threads are dropped, or sand is brought in, not withstanding the mat at the door.— Tl> u comes the brushing up. The fierub broom is picked up in a hurry, and ii itirished over the fl >or, but there is no time to dust the furniture. Now the question is, would it not be better t> use a crumb cloth under the dinning table, and oftener employ the small broom and tin dust pan, leaving the actual sweeping till ii coul.l be nicely done? V/iiiii i*i the Bible Liko ! It is like a large, beautiful tree wh’o'i bears sweet fruit for those who are hungry, and affords shelter and shade for pilgrims on their way to the kingdom of heaven. It is like a cabinet of jewels and precious stones which are not only to be 1 >oked at and admired, but need and worn. It is like a telescope that brings distant objects and tar off things of the world very near, so that we can see something of their beauty and importance. It is like a treasnre-honse, a store house, for all sorts of valuable and useful things, and which afe to be had without money and without price. It is like a deep, broad, calm flow ing river, the banks of which are green and flowery, where birds sing and lambs play, and dear little child ren are loving and happy. QIIAS. B.
