Make -Tinkle according to these propor tions, sufficient to cover your hams well by .pulling the salt, salt-petre and peppers in to the water, cold from the well or spring, and stirring it well till tbo salt is nearly dissolved. Pack your hams in a barrel ur other vessel, and pour yonr pickle on them, stirring it well at tho time, that the undis solved salt may bo all poured to your hams. Be careful that they be all covered with the pickle, and kept so for six weeks ; then lake them out and wash or rinse them off in clean cold water, hang them up and lol them drain for a day or two, then smoke them with sugar maple or hickory chips or wood, green from the trco, which makes the sweetest and purest smoke of any kind of wood I am acquainted with, and makes it cntircrly unnecessary to put sugar and molasses in the pickle, as I used to do. My method of smoking is, il in moderate fall or winter weather, to make one smoke in twenty-four hours if in severe winter weather, two. Tho object to be aimed at in regulating the smoke, is, first, to make as little fire as you can, and make a good strong smoke second, to let your hams get thoroughly cooled through "after each smoke, before another is made. Every farmer who usos an axe, knows how rapid, ly a cold frosty axe collects pyroligneous acid, or essence of smoke. While hams are cold, they collect it as rapidly, and as they become warm it dries into them. If you increase the heat so as to make them drip tho fat, you lessen the weight of your hams and injure their flavor. With re. gard to the credit of my horns in market, I will only say that gentlemen in Cleve land, who have used hams of mv curinir. pronounce them equal to anv thev have ever seen, and they command the highest price in market. e. t'UUTK. Brooklyn, Ohio, Sept. 1836. THE SEMINOLE WAR. The want of any thing like regular com munication with the seal of war, keeps us in the most painful slate of suspense in ro. gard to tho operations of the army. It must be admitted, that the numerous ob stacles which are known to stand in the way of a successful and speedy termination of the campaign, arc calculated to inspire fearful forebodings of its results; and acci dent besides, has, we fear, done much to frustrate the well arranged plans of Cov. Call for supplying the troops in tho field with provisions. We have heard that considerable supplies were ordered early in the campaign to oescnllrom fat. Marks, to the Suwanee, and they did not reach their destination until weeks altor, accord ing In the most liberal calculation, they should have arrived. It is said too, that a great quantity of corn and other provisions intended for the army, was deposited in a storehouse at St. Marks: the house, which was built over the water, fell down with the weight which it contained, and the whole of its contents wero ruined. Then again the large steamboat Convoy, contain nga very lull cargo ot provisions, destined for Tampa Bay, sprung a leak, near this port, and put in here in a sinking condition nearly her whole cargo was damaged, and much of it entirely ruined ; and last of all i tht loss of the Lieut. Izard on the bar oflho Wilhlacoorhec. It is believed that the character, condi tion and resources of the Florida Indians are but little understood, except by those who have actually witnessed their mode of warfare. The campaign made by General Jackson against the Florida Indians, 18 years ago, when they were stronger than they are now, is often quoted to prove that the subjugation ol the oeininolcs is no such difficult mailer as it is thought ; but it should bo remembered that tbeir condition was quite different from what it is at pres ent. They were then banded together in small tribes. Every petty chief bad his town; the guides had no difficulty in con ducting Gan. Jackson jlirectly to them, in detail. Beside, they were not all un friendly to the whites. But now they all fight as one man. History scarcely fur nishes a parallel for the fidelity which these peoplo have show to one another. We hear ol no single inbtanco ot treachery or detection among them. fawce the war be gan, not one of the hostile has come out from among his brethren. 1 hey have no towns to defend, and their women and children prelect themselves by flight. The climate is their friend too. Summer, which brings disease and death to their pursuers, has no terrors for them, and they are stran gers to the rigors of winter. They have nearly 20,000 square miles in which in hide themselves, and the most satisfactory intel ligence as to where they were yesterday, affords not the least reason to believe that they may not be fifty miles from there to morrow ; while if lliey choose, the whole tribe may, in many places, lie within 100 yards of the whole army of the whiles. During Iho last campaign it is said there were many instances of this ; while tho whites were "stunning the drowsy car of night" wilh the chopping of trees, the building of fires, and the cracking of cart whips, and all sorts of noises; much upon the same reason, we suppose, that caused the fellow to whistle at the very top of his lungs to keep away tho ghosts when he was passing a church yard. In this county, we are loo remote from the Indians to have experienced, or even felt the least apprehension of, tho actual disasters of the war; but it has neverlhe less pressed sorely upon us. Out of lees than three hundred men liable to do milita ry duly, we now have eighty in the field. Pensacola Gax, There is much truth and good sense in the following article from the Pennsylva nian : Betting on Elections. We have ob served wilh regret, that for some years past, the reprehensible and ruinous prac tice ot belling upon elections has been steadily but rapidly increasing. From small beginnings, probably among profes scu and active partizans, who soucht to strengthen their assertions, and give force to their opinions by trifling wagers, il now pervades eyery class of society, and the test of being sincere in political faith, lies inthcgreainessof the amount which a man is willing lo hazzard on the result. The rich and the poor, as shown by the election just passed, are equally affected wilh the mama lor political ueiiing. ro ine extern of their means, and in too many instances, far bevond their means, they were not onlv ready, bnt eager to back their favorito candidates with heavy risks upon their ca pabilities for running, as if an election for lbs public servants of a free people, stood upon a par wilh a horao rice, and the ex. ercise of the proudest attribute of a repub lican was merely a test for deciding a gam bling question. Tho importance of tho Doint at issue, tho policy of our own Gov ernment, the public good, tho welfaro of our institutions, seem in a measure to oe lost sight of in the general desire to make money without laboring for it, to fill the nackct bv undisguised Gambling a species of gambling, in its ultimate tendency, of me worsi ocscripuuii. They who would shrink with repugnance from tho idea of belting upon a race; from hazarding their means upon the turn of a card, or the throw of a die, havo no hesita tion in openly doing tho same thing upon the result ofan election. They would turn with horror from the threshold of a gaming house and consider it derogatory to be S3en in company with men known to be in the habit of freauenlincr such establishments. They are anxious for tho suppression of the roulette table and the larro bank, as subversive of the morals of society, and re pleto wilh the most dangerous effects; yet they will openly and with exultation dnin their pockets to the last farthing as a stake upon tho People's sense of tho merits of such or such an individual who may be brought forward as a candidate for of fice. It is idle to talk of protecting the morals of the community by penal enact ments against gaming, while such practices arrest the attention at every turn. Licens ed houses of play throughout our cities could not operate more injuriously. In fact, tho evil thus arising might bo less; for, as things are at present, no place, not even (he fireside, is free from exhibitions of a gambling spirit. It is constantly be fore the eyes of the young, the rash, and the inexperienced; and if it is not already, there is reason to fear the time is not far distant when it will be converted into an engine of political power, and be used as an instrument of baneful effect upon the purity of electivo franchise. Should it con. tinue to increase, as it will if not checked by public opinion, it Is not easy to assign limits lo its corrupting influence. Examination of a witness. Judge.

FRIDAY MORNING, NOVEMBER 25. The result ofthe Presidential Ejection is yet doubtful and that doubt now rests on the result in NonTir Carolina. With N. Carolina, Mr Van Buren is beyond doubt elected; without it, he is certainly defeated by nineteen electoral voles. The returns from this Slate are at present somewhat conflicting, and not altogether what we had reason, to expect. The Journal of Com merco gives returns from nearly half the counties in the State, which show a Van Buren gain of 1500 since the Gov. election, when, it will be recollected, the Whigs po ed a majority of 5000. The next mail will probably bring us information decisive of the result. Thus far the Whigs have carried all the Stales they claimed pressed Van Buren hard on his own ground, and taken New Jersey by storm. Make room for Aeto Jersey. Contrary to all expectation, the Whigs have carried New Jersey by a handsome majority. And what is of more importance, they have elec. led their whole delegation to the next Con, press, and filled one vacancy in the present Three cheers for Iho "Jersey Blues." Massachusetts holds fast to the good faith. The Whig electoral ticket has prevailed there by nearly or quito eight thousand. Rhode Island gives a majority of two hundred for Van Buren. Connecticut (official) 628j Electoral Election. By the Consti lution ofthe United Stales, the Electors of President and Vice President of the United States, assemble at the Capitol of each Slate on the first Wednesday of December and vote, by ballot, for President and Vice rresiuent 01 ine uniicu states, nne o whom at least shall not be an inhabitant of the same state wilh themselves. Thev must name, in their ballots, the person vo led for as President, and in distinct ballots tho person voted for as Vice President uisunct nsis must bo made 01 the persons voted for as President and Vice President which must be signed, certified, sealed, an transmuted to Washington, directed to the President of the United Slates. Th President of iho Senate, before tho Senal and House of Representatives, opons the certificates and the votes are then counted He who has the greatest number of voles if Buch be a majority of the whole number of Electors appointed, shall be President if no person have such a majority, then from the three highest candidates tho Hous of Representatives shall choose immediate ly, by ballot, the President. The votes are taken by states, each state being entitled to but ono vote, and a majority of all the states are necessary to a choice. There seems lo have been an unaccount able neglect of the late election in N, Car olina. In many counties, that gave two o threo thousand votes at slate election hardly as many hundred were given Co electors; and in some inetancci tbe poll were not opened at all. This is what has rendered the result even doubtful. State Nomination. A stale conven tion was holdon at Montpelier on Thursday evening of last week, at which' Messrs. Jenison, Camp, and Clark, were nomina ted for re-election to (heir present offices. Gov. Jenison appears to have been very popular with the late legislature, and has secured a largo share of the confidence of II parties. The Legislature. On Thursday eve adjourned without day, after a session of live weeks and one day one 01 the longest ever holden. iakirg into consideration the circumstance that a new organization nd order of business was necessary that comparatively litllo has been deferred to another ECBS'on and the surplus question we are bound to say that the session has ot been prolonged without reason. 1 lie number of public and private acts passed is 701. Watchman. The following are the provisions of three ofthe prominent enactments. The SunPLUs Bill provides that the Treasurer of tho State receive (he money nd distribute it among the several incor. poratcd towns in proportion to the last census. Th-) towns to call special meetings nd appoint commissioners to receive it when received, to loan it and appropriate the interest to the use of schools, but if any town choosot to let the money remain n the treasury, it can do so and receive the interest from the treasurer. The usury law, repeals all former acts on the subject and provides only for the legal interest without any penalty for taking excessive; but the aggrieved can, after paying extra interest, prosecute and recover the usurious part with costs. The act in relation to negotiable notes prohibits all pleas in offset by the maker of Iho note after they are negotiated or unssed nto a third persons hands, which, wo bo ieve is the law and practice in most of the blates. Tennessee. The Legislature of Ten nesseo adjourned on the 26th ult. A law passed, appointing the Governor, Comp troller, and Treosurcr, Commissioners lo receive the Stole's portion of the Surplus Revenue. It is lo bo deposited in the Un ion Bank and Planters Bank of Tennessee. The Banks are to give bond, receive it at their own charge, repay it when demanded by the Secretary of the Treasury ofthe U. Slates, and pay an interest to the Slate of five or six per cent per annum. It is not staled how the interest is to be applied, Maryland. The friends of order will observe with satisfaction tho nrosnect which Mr. Linthicum'i letter furniches ol the speedy termination of the anomalous difficulty which has arisen in Maryland from the violence of party spirit, inflamed by party demagogues. One more elector only is now necessary to constitute a quo rum of the college and effect an election of the Senate; and we cannot doubt that there are others who will concur wilh Mr. Linhiicum, and repair lo the discharge of their duty. Tho fulllowing is Mr. L.'s teller to his recusant brethren: Gentlemen: Believing that Ihe course we adopted in seceding from the Electorul Collugo was expressive of thn wishes of a majority of tho People of Maryland, but not having been sustained by that major ity, and being at all limes willing to submit in Ihe will of the people, I have deter mined to obey this will a expressed by the votes of the November Election, and i-hall repair to Annapolis on Friday, th 18th inst. end on the I9lh qualify as an Elector of the Senate, and I invite you to meet me there, for llie purpose of joining in making quorum.
