M'c joined the commissioners there on Thursday, nnd give some-new end im portant information on the subject. )rs Dadd of lloston, Thajer of Xcntoti, llats, Ilcmi, Woodaril nnd Sargent of Worccstor, and llrcck of .Springfielil, were in atlcmlance, and aliout fifty of the neighboring farmers. Tho first place usitcd was Leopard Stoddard's, who lias head, mostly jonng cattle, all of whom arc supposed to ho nirected. Since September last Mr Stoddard has lost thiitren head, at intervals of two or three weeks. Si animals, chicllv low in flesh, weic slaughtered and dissected in the course of the forenoon". They included, as was supposed before killing them, some of the extreme cases, the worst and lightest specimens of the malady . All ere fouu 1 to be bad, u orse cs-en than was feared. The last one slaughter ed Mailt Kootl-jdacl, licit, ,1,im..1Ic,1 WllOin' .Mr Stoddard claimed was freest from the dis ease of any animal n his herd. Her lungs proved to be on ono side tuberculous and heay. It was thought, she might have lived tonic months, as does a person in consumption. In the afternoon, tho herds of V. II. Ajcrs, K. llnston nnd Alden Olmstcul, were . sited. At the two former places the owners oulv suspected the presence of the disease. At the fatter place, lite out of twenty-three brad had died, threo had been killed by order of the commissioners, and two others, a cow and a calf, were slaugh tered r.t the time of our isit. The calf was apparently very sick, inclining to lie down, with n drooping appearance, short, gasping breath, nnd tho ribs rendering a hollow sound when tapped upon by the lingers. The cow had been ailing since the first of January. At first she refused to cut, then drooped her head, anil for some time was daily expected to die. Some two or three weeks since she got better, went to eating, and has since gained in llcsh. In or der that the phjsicians anil populace might see the iccupcratite power of nature in a case of this kind, the animal was slain. She was taken into an adjoining field, abounding in already deep, prepared cattle-graves, rapped upon the head, bled, the left froi t leg removed, the hide skinned back to the middle of Iho body, and several of the ribs nearest the shoulders with drawn. The first thing noticeable was the fib rous adhesion of the lungs to the rib. The left lung was rcmot id, and found to be sulid, heavy, and to contain n deep abscess. On cut ting it open, a jcllowish matter of the consis tenceof tar issued freely. This lung was found to weigh 10 pounds, while that on the right side weighed only -1 pounds. Tho heart was thin and flabby, and the licr studded with pus tules, and its surface pitted like n case of small pox. The doctors have sat cd it for further ex hibition and examination. We were told by Dr. Thayer a gentleman of skill, whom the commissioners employ in these examinations, tiiat thus far ho has found the left lung most diseased in recent, acute cases, and the right lung chicllyin slow, chronic cases. Mr Olmstead tells us that tho first symptoms of the disease nre n drooping of the head, a cough, refusal to cat, and panting for breath. Some of his animals have abstained from food for a fortnight, and others hate eaten on the day they died. Wo noticed that Mr Ohnstead's bam was new, tight and without any ventila tion, and hate no doubt that want of proper air is ono of the inducements of the disease. That tho disorder is contagious, thero can be little doubt, but at what stage it is transmissable, no ono knows, l'rom fivo to ten days usually elapse between tho exposure and the symp toms. At present tho diseaso is confined to a terri tory about 1- miles square, a territory abound ing in cattle, and from which at this timo last jear, from one tn two car loads of butter and cheese per week were forwarded to lloston. Xow all trade is suspended, tho cattle aro for bidden under penalties to bo sold, and the herds nro ordered. by tho commissioners to bo closely Kent on their premises. Some 00 head were ordered destroyed on Wednesday, in Xorlh Ilrookficld and New liraintrcc, embracing threo entire herds. Of theso Charles Huntington loses 11, Alanson Xeedham i!S, and Alden Moody SI. Mr Moody is a young man of no ble (duck, and his stock Uko himself superior. Ho is said to have knocked his favorite grade Durham oxen on the head with his own hands, rather than 6co any one else murder them, while the tears rolled down his manly checks. . The commissioners and doctors arc alarmed nnd almost disheartened, for more than ono hundred new cases wcro presented yesterday fur their inspection, with tho animals already killed, aud those they find that must be killed to carry out their policy; tho appropriation of the legislature ($10,000) is moro than exhaust ed. Those killed on Wednesday wero apprais ed at i?K)00j and their owners will bo paid from tho appropriation. Mr. I.athrop went to lios ton in tho noon train to adviso with tho gover nor on the subject, and to induce him to visit tho infected region to-day. If tho diseaso should go no further, the loss to the faimers of BRATTLEBOllO, YT.: APRIL, 28, 1SG0. that region would be very great, and if it spreads it may be necessary to call the legisla ture together, or petition tlio aid of Congress, The disease is well known in Kuropo as infec tious, from whence wc received it. The history of the disease in this country so far as known, is as follows! In the month of May, 1S50, there arrived in Uoston from Hol land, four Dutch cows directed to W. W. ('hc nery of Delmont. Thcso cows were black, thin-skinned, largo nnd said to be great milkers. On landing they appeared hungry, thirsty and neglected, and one of them, it is said hnd not been on her legs for twenty days. Tw o of these cows were so feebh that they had to he carted to liclmont, some six miles from lloston. A few days after arrital, on the Ulst of May, tine of the cows died. On the !M of Juno a second died and on the liOth of Juiw rt third. The fourth is now olive and doing wcU. In all, Mr Chcnery has within n year lost 27 head of cat tle of other importations, then on his premises. The disease was not supuosed contngious till rtCLiitlv. Last June. Corliss Stniblanl nf Vnrtl, llrooklield bought three grade Dutch calves of Mr Chcnery and brought them home. One of them wns taken sick about the first of August, and was finally taken tn his father's, Mr. Leon ard Stoddard's, to bo doctored. It was placed in his barn by the side of -ither cattle and died there about the first of September. Mr Stod dard, being n trading man, sold tho other two caltes to William Doane, one of which has died and the third lives. In Xovember last the jounger Stoddard had an auction, and his stock were purchased by the farmers of that region. About two months ngo, Mr Stoddard being log ging near Mr Allen Wondis' house, put his cat tle in the barn to feed, and as a consequence Mr Woodis has lost his entire herd. In Xovember last, Mr Alden Olmstead swapped cattle with Mr Stnddnrd, and hence his herd became infect ed. Similar rejults have everywhere followed similar exposures. The doctors as jet have suggested no remedies, but call the disease pneumonia, dropping the plcurn. It is hoped that some remedy may jet be suggested, and that we may profit by 'the experience of the wretched Hollanders. In the midst of this excitement, the past is tit idly drawn on, nnd some road makers in Itarre, having; exhumed n lot of Cattle bones, one old man is found who distinctly remembers that in 178!), nearly iiOO head of cattle died of murrain, and were here buried in one grave. TIIK LEVi:E IN l'liOCTOIiSVILLE. Again will I call the attention of jour read ers to our village, which, though it has not ex panded (except thu crinoline portion) in any great degree, jet the people have expended round sums in "getting up" and patronizing their levees; two of which have been holden in this town the present winter. 1 am not to give jou an extended nccoont of a letce in common, for there every one will find the usual amount of smiles, cake, sparkling eves, nnd pop corn, but I will tell j on the elfcct the above, together with several bowls of ojs ters, had upon me. I'or dajs previous to the gathiring, the entire ncighliorhood was in an uproar, a team to go hear, some fruit and "trimmings" from the next place, was the order of the day, and of course no one could refuse, when thc meeting house needs repairs, or the minister is likelj to come short n cool hundred, and the labor and help of all sorts of fowls is called into requisition from the Quail" to the "l'clican," and after a full compliment of Hall trimming, finger-pounding, and table-fixing, the happy evening arrives. With hat in liimd nnd and heart in my mouth, 1 call for "The lady of mv choice," who has nr.- "ouIv consented to be cseuueu lei mo i.etce and atlei .1. u couple of dimes at the door, and a low bow to the shadow of the lady just forward, we aro ushered into the Ilnll, iuade as light as noonday by the blaze of a hundred tallow candles, anil as many beaming countenances j congratulating tnjsclf that so much happiness was now before me, all for two dimes. Mistaken man! like the Pilgrim, it was here my trials first began. The deacon's daughter now approaches and. claims the pmilcgo of "showing us round to see the tables," ()f course they were beautifully ar ranged. Kven "Solomon in all his glory" could not exceed one of these in beauty and splendor. One cake in particular attracted my attention bung to tastefully trimmed; and so courteous was the lady in attendance, that she even placed it in my hands, and then, to mv surprise, I learned it was a "Guess Cake." (Didn't I burn mv fingers.) Then my lady had to guess, too, (why can't women let' sucli things alone? So it was, and 1 paid the guesses with a quarter, nml it being the first money she had taken, of course she had no change, and I left the spot, feeling a little lighter nt pocket but heavier nt heart. Wc now listen to the opening speech, then a song, after which, tho "distinguished Speaker from abroad," appears before us in the person of John Smith, the blacksmith, who is a constant attendant at church and "pavs well," who (of course is "wholly unprepared," being called upon "unexpectedly,") repeats a few sen tences ho has learned bv heart, sits down, to be followed by the "Hand," who "perform their part admirably," from the Captain Tlown to the man with the big drum, who looks, for all the w oi Id, like a boy trying to knock in the head of a rum hogshead. It is eight o'clock, nnd supper is announced to be served in one hour, and to save my money I nt once determined to satiate the appetite o'f the beauty at my side with cake, feeling that it would cost less to fill ono than two. I then rushed to the t.-flilc, passing her a liberal slice of cake, reserving another in my own hands in case she should get through with'the first. And what is to pay ? "Only a quaiter each," sajs the lady, "that is tho 'King Cake.'" King Cake! Indeed! I mistook I I that is to say all right, Mr. l'clican, yon may get the ring there are on!) fifty pieces at a quarter each, and the ring is richly worth a dollar and a half. Ily this time pieeo Xo. 1, was badly ciumbled, to find the ring, nnd scattered upon the floor, and getting desperate, piece Xo. 2 follows its prcdecssor. We then sought a quiet corner for a teat, when my companion mado a rush toward a strange lad t:; and after a serious shaking and n few reports, like the uncorking of a beer bottle, I wns introduced to "mvcous iu," right from tho city, or factorj-, I did not distinguish which, nnd then in a low, gentle voice, I was informed that this w as a "sweet pretty girl," and the "cousin" was also inform ed, in so low a tone of voice, that I could dis tinctly hear, that this "dear gentleman" ,was her beau, and would probably take them both to supper, (wan't that cool ?) To supper w c went, and partly to get my monej's worth, and partly out of spite, succeeds in putting four bowls o'f oysters in n very nnenviablo position. On returning to the hall, wu met tho Miss with tho "Grab bag," who had such n "winning way" that, bachelor as I was, I could not resist. I paid another quarter determined to see the elephant in full uniform. Lady at my right dips in first and draws forth a pipo loaded with tobacco, a very pretty article for a oung lady, and now for the cousin at my left, who after displaying good tasto in selecting a bundle, held up to view a littlo apron, so small I wondered what could be dono with it. And now for the Pelican, who plunged to tho bottom, and after selecting a good plump package, unrolled it to tho gaze of tho astonished crowd. O, horror! I blush to relate it. A negro rag baby, and I n siuglo man, with n lady at each side, and plenty moro in front and in tho rear. Suro cnouge, hero was tho elephant and I had him by tho horns. And to pleaso my companions, yon will not wonder, I becamo perfectly reck less and scattered tho money with a profuse hand. The "l'ost Ofllce," tho "Quilt," and other catch-penny games nil received their duo share of patronage. Tho ico was broken and my heart was as big as a beetle. Hark! What is thu disturbance in that corner? Let us sec. Oh nothing, they tell us, only the two voting gentlemen who had drawn the Guess Cake in company, not satisfied to tut it nnd thus mar its beauty forccr, had agreed to "toss up" for tho cake. Oh, human depratily! Just think. of it, two joung men, sons of exemplary par ents, gambling in presence of ministers and llie community generally! Where will bo their endP Our only hope is, that the wholesome udvanco given them by the good old Deacon, will bo heeded nnd salutary in its effects. Tho evening is passed, 'mid with ninny re grets and good byes, wo leave for home, the ladies to count the new tlrcssis they had seen, and I to count the cost, and find that I am minus an X, plus a headache and sour stomach, and the feeling that nt least a dollar and a half of the above sum will get into the treasury. 1 also feel thankful that nil this has happened ill an enlightened and pious ( (immunity, tor had a half dozen ladies from a large village or city succeeded in winning n ten spot fiom me, I should have been forever disgraced; nnd now, should I see any improvement about the church costing n couple of dollers, I shall feel that I had been and gone and done it.

The following passage from Mr Ilucklo's His tory of Civilization indicates in glowing colors the obstacles which the prodigality of nature may oppose lo the progress of man": Ilrazil, which is nearly as largo as the whole of Kurope, is covered with a vegetation of in credible profusion. Indeed, so rank aud luxu riant is the growth, that nature seems lo riot in tho very wantonness of power. A great part of this immenso country is filled with dense and tangled forests, whose noble trees, blossom ing in unrivalled beaut)-, aud exquisite with a thousand hues, throw out their produce in end less prodigality. On their summit are perched birds of gorgeous plumage, which nestle rh their dark and lofty recesses, llclow-, their base and trunks aro crowned with brushwood, creeping plants, innumerable parasites, all swarming with life. There, too, are myriads of insects oi every variety; reptiles of strange aud singular form; serpents and lizards, spot ted with deadly beauty; all of which find means of existence in this vast work-shop and reposi tory of nature. And, that nothing may bo wanting to this land of marvels, tho forests aro skirted by enormous meadows, which, reeking with heat and moisture, supply nourishment to countless herds of wild cattle, that browso and fatten on tho herbage; while tho adjoining plains, licit in another form of life, aro the chosen nbodo of the subtlest and most ferocious animals, which prey on each other, but which it might almost seem no human power can hope to extirpate. Hut ntnid this pnmp and splendor of nature, no place is left for man. He is reduced to in significance by tho majesty with which ho is surrounded. The forests that oppose him nre so formidable, that ho has never been aliio to make head against them, never nblo to rally against their accumulated pressure The wholo of ilrazil, notwithstanding its immenso appar ent advantages, has ulivnys remained entirely uncivilized ; its inhabitants wandering Bavages, incompetent to resist those obstacles which tho No. 17. very bounty of nature had put in their way. In their country, the phjsicnl causes nre so active, and do their work on n Rcalo ol such unrivalled magnitude, that it has hitherto been found im possible In escape from the effects of their united action. The progress of agriculture is slopped by impassable foiesls, nnd the harvests nro destrojed by innumerable insects. The mountains are too high lo scale, the titers too wide to bridge; everything is connived to rc pi ess the human mind, nnd keep b.tc't its rising iimmuou. ii js inns mat tin ti. rgies ot na ture hatohampc ed the spirit of man. And tho mind, cowed by the unequal struggle, lias nut only b en unable tn advance, but, without foreign aid, it would undoubtedly have receded. Ilrazil, the country where, of nil others, physi cal resources arc most powerful, where both vegetables and nnimals nre most abundant, where the soil is watered by tho noblest rivers, and the const studded by the finest harbors this immense ten itory, which istwelvc times the size of Trance, contains a population not exceeding six millions of people. Professor Ansted adds to this his testimony to (ho effect that the native Indians seem irredeemable, and sunk in the must wi etched barbaiism and that there appears no prospect whatever of any im provement in the district, since man can find no spot on much to commence his operations. AX EXTRAORDINARY ELEniANT. A little incident occurred last night, at Dan Itice's during the representation of the Kast In dian spectacle of the Klephai.t of Siam, which desert cs nonce; especially ns it is not probable that half a dozen people in the audience sup posed that it was a pait of the business of the lilat . In one of the scenes, tho Prince. Alnmnn. zor, who had fallen into power of nn usurper, is brought upon the stage in n box, by a party of the usurper's adherents, who intend to throw him into a hole. These nre frightened by the approach of tho "Sacred Elephant," and lice precipitately, leaving the. l'nnco enclosed in what was intended for hiscoflin. Then accord ing to the author, the elephant enters, opens the box, and discovering her protege half suf focated, plucks un orange from a tree nnd hands it to mm, to revue Ins lainting energies. 11ns the elephant Lalla llookh usually does in a man ner deserving of commendation ; but, last night, me orange was inadvertently bung in a diller ent place from that which it had nreviouslv cc. cupied, and poor Lalla I.ookh was in great trib uhition in consequence. She reached for it whertvit should have been, but not finding it, commenced a seties of the most comical ma nirmer. With n shout, quickly repeated "trumpetings," or shrieks, she thiew- her trunk wildly around in hopes of finding the missing fruit, and ns if fearful that the audience would bo disappointed by her failure, endeavored to compensate for by going through an extempore performance not in the bills placing herself in various positions, sucn as she had been taught to assume when performing in the ring. Fi nally, coming to the conclusion that no orange wns there, she paused for an instant, and then, as if n happy suggestion had occurred to her, grasped from the flats an imaginary one, which she presented to the Prince with till due cere mony, somewhat to his astonishment, for, being in a position which would not allow him to see what had been going on, he extended his hand as usual to receive what proved to be merelv a "freak of imagination" on the nart of tho e'le- nhant. When it is recollected that the animal was on the stage by herself, without any keeper to control her movements, the wonderful intel ligence she displavcd will be fullv nnnreeiatod. and those who comprehend the s'ubterfuge she emnlnved to deceive the audience, all concurred in pronouncing it the most extraordinary dis play of elephantine sagacity on record. City i uptrr. W05IEN MORE SECRET THAN WE SUPPOSE. All the Yenr Humid promulgates a new doc- lime on this subject: "We laugh rt the worn' onV tongue, and -vondcr when a woman keeps a secret ; but every true woman keeps a box of sunns: u.'iiua (u, ijn unil jiriiuie iiiuu.geiice. The man's mysteries arc not hers ; if he cannot keep them to himself, let bun expect them to be blow n abroad. Her own secrets of love, of loss, of self-denial, of unsuspected suffering, no woman exposes altogether, even to her nearest friend. There never lived a husband happy in me true love ot nts wuo, wno lairly knew all the depths of her mind about him. Everv man profits stupidly Jiy the wise little perceptions mui. arise so quicuy nun nave no utterance ex cept in deeds, nf which we vncuelv ascribe the fitness to special faculty called woman's tact. Women, in short, keep to themselves four-fifths of tho secrets of society, nnd do it with a win ning air oi iranKness ait tneir own. A man with a secret will be stonj-, or portentous, or provokingly suggestive ; he will keep his mouth shut ostentatiously. A woman is too absolute ly secret to set up' a public sigh over whatever may lie buried jn her mind. She gossips, prat tles, pours out what she does not caro to hold, with such an air of unreserved simplicity that nil mankind is im stifled, aud savs, in friendly jest, 'A woman only hides what she don't know.' Among the uneducated poor, this difference be tween the woman and the man is most con spicuous. The innate powers of her sex place her at once upon an eminence which man can only reach by education. She must needs often be tied to one in whom thera is not tho erain of understanding requisite to the formation of true sympathy, iiy tar the greater number of wives ot uusKiiieu lauorers anu mechanics, live more or less happily, and more or less con scious of the hidden life within them, having such a seal upon their minds nnd hearts." A WESTERN CRITICISM. A correspondent of the Buffalo Courier nar rates tho following shrewd criticism passed by a rough Western man on the Prairie Picture, hy Heard, tho well known artist of Cincinnati: A few mornings ago, as I was standing ad miring as I confess myself quite fond of doing thai beautiful deer group, a tall unmistakably Western man came up behind me, nnd looked over my shoulder. 1 noticed at one.' the quick stoppage of breathing ; but to my surprise, the stop was short, and something like a laugh quickly succeeded. Looking up, I saw a ) el low face over-spreading with a smile, nnd there was a decided twinklo in the eje, 'Pshaw !" said he, "that's no picture, nftur all. That aint no fair representation." "Why," said 1, "that struck me as being a pretty good painting." "Muybe it's good enough for n paintiw," said tho Western man, "I don't say anything agin that) but there never was no sccuo en acted like it. Jest look at that tall rice grass up there and then tho fern weeds below who ever saw them grow together. Why, tho ono grows on wet and the other on dry land. Hut that's pretty wet land," ho continued, "and jest ?ec them deer's feet, how clean they be. They ought to be ir.ud up to tho knees ; and at the gait they're going at, they'd bo spotted with mud all over. I tell ye, when I went to that country first, tho men ekecrcd mo sometimes, driving their wagons on to a wet prnire, but they'd tell me it was all light and suro enough, I would find n good bottom a foot down. Then tho next thing 1 knowed they would bo giving a pretty wide berth to a placo that looked, at first sight, cdzacktly like tho other; and I soon found an easy way to tell was by tho grassei." "If any o'yo know that painter chap," said the unconsciously keen critic, as ho prepared to move off, "jest tell him but it's no use," he t.iid, lowering his voice, "that's a good enough city prairie !"

A letter from Home states that Rogers, the sculptor, is there at work upon a luonzc door fur the Capi tol at Washington, the estimated cost of which is $23,000. There arc eight groups sculptured upon it, representing scenes in the life of the discoverer of America. The first scene repre sents Columbus before the Council of Salaman ca, unfolding his great theory. In the second he is just setting out to seek royal aid. In the third he is before the King and "Queen, laboring to convince them. Isabella leans forward, and seems interested, butFerdinand scarcely deigns to heed the visionary enthusiast. In the fourth he is confiding his son to the care of the monks, while his ships wait. In the fifth he is landing in great state upon St. Salvador. The sixth is at Hispaniola, where one of the salors is bring ing an Indian girl to the ship on his shoulders. The ncxt is the great navigator's triumphal en try into Harcelonia on his return. In the suc ceeding one he is about to be sent home from Cuba in chains and dis grace. The "last scene of all" is death. The priests have administer ed to him the sacrament ; one holds a crucifix fur him to kiss; friends and attendants are weeping around, and the spirit of tin; dying man is about to start on that last great voyage from which none return. In niches surround ing these scenes are figures and busts of vari ous royal personages contemporary with Colum bus, including Ferdinand and Isabella, &c. ' Hints fop. Housekeepers. If the covers of sofas and chairs are dirty, they may be cleansed without being removed, 'by first washing them over with warm water and soap, rubbed over them with a flannel; then, before they are dry, sponge them over with a strong solution of salt been mixed. Ihe window of the room should be opened, so as to secure a perfect drying, and the colors and freshness of tire articles will be restored. Floor cloths may be cleaned with a mixture of magnesia, only milk-warm, followed by warm water, in tho s'ame manner that car pets are cleaned. They should be rubbed with a dry flannel till nearly dried, then again wet over w ith a sponge dipped in milk, and immedi ately dried and rubbed with a flannel till the polish is restored. This is a process much to lie preferred to that of rubbing the cloth with wax, which leaves it sticky and liable to retain dust and dirt for n long time. Very hot water should never" be used in cleaning iloor-cloths, as it brings off the paint. Cleaning mirrors and polished steel articles is an easy operation, when rightly understood. The greatest care should be taken in cleaning a mirror, to use on ly the softest articles, lest the glass should bo scratched. It should first be dusted with a feather brush, then washed over with a sponge dipped in spirits to remove the fly spots ; after this il should be dusted with the powder bluo in a thin muslin bag, and flnallv polished with an old silk handkci chief. Polished steel arti cles, if rubbed eveiy morning with leather, will not become dull or rusty; but if lust has been suffered to gather, it must bo immediately re moved by covering the steel with sweet oil, and allowing it to remain on for two days; then spiinklo it over with finely powdered unslaked lime, rub it with polishing leather.

Flirtations of Mahwed Women. The innocent flirtations of married women is one of the abominations of modem society. Even a desire for promiscuous admiration is wrong in a w ife. The love of one and his approval should be all that she ought to desire. Let her bo ev er so beautiful, it is a disgusting and appalling sight to sco her decoroting that beauty for pub lic gaze; to sco her seeking the attention of senseless fops around, nnd rejoicing in the ad miration of other eyes than thoso of her hus band. Her beauty should bo for him alone, and not for the gaze of fools that flutter around her. Thero is always among the sedate and wiso a sensation of disgust when a married la dy attempts to ensnare or entrap young men by a profuse display of her charms, or an unlicensed-outlay of her smiles. Such charms and such smiles are loathsome to tho indifferent be. holder; and tho trail of the serpent is over them. Hev Db. Fomerov.
