NOT TUB GX.ORV OP O S A R BUT THE WBX.FARB Of R O M B BY II. B. STACY. BURLINGTON, VERMONT, FRIDAY, JULY 18, 1845. VOL. XIX No. 7. Prom Barllett's Walks about Jerusalem. TUB POOL OP SILOAM. A little above the fountain of En Rogcl, which leads up the valley of Jehosaphat, there is a mulberry tree of unusual size, with a raised ter race, a favorite stopping place for wayfarers and shepherds, who repose under its ample shade, whilo their flocks are drinking from a channel filled with water, conducted from tho Pool of Siloam, which is a few paces above. It was not without emotion that wo descended tho stops of tho fountain, worn and polfshcd by ages, and seated ourselves under the cool moist arch, a delicious shelter from the burning noon-day beams of a July sun, reposing our weary limbs, listening to the gentle current of tho "waters of Siloam, that go softly," anil drinking, with tho palm of our hands, from tho refreshing and lim pid stream. As the Arab women of the valley came down to fill their pitchers, we remember ed that the daughters of Judah frequented it two thousand years ago: that kings and prophets have drank of its consecrated waters, and that porhaps Jesus and his disciples liavo often rcpos cd on these very steps, in tho course of his walks about the city. To describe tho view before us the path to the fountain is seen abovo tho edge of tho pool, on tho right, and figures are descending the stops under its arch, down to the water, which flows out by a small orifice in the snuare pool, and thence by a channel into the valley below, as before stated. The remains of nillars, at the side and in the basin, seem to indicate that at a former period it must have been wholly or partially covered ; and it has been supposed that this is also the 'IJcthosda,' with five porches, where at certain hours an an gel, according to popular tradition, troubled the waters, which were then supposed to have heal ing power. This receives some countenance from the fact, that there is a singular ebb and flow in the stream, noticed by many travellers, and lately witnessed by Dr. Hubinson, but bc yund this there is nothing to support tho con jcclure. It has been ascertained by the perse vering research of Dr. Robinson, that the water is brought to tho Pool from that of tho irgin higher up tho valley, by moans of a channel cut through tho rocky hill of Ophcl, a work of great and useless labor. Both fountains were within tho city. Its length, as measured by Inm, is 1700 feet. A BEAUTIFUL THOUGHT. How few men seem to have formed a concep tion of the original dignity of their creation. Regarding themselves only as a crcaturo of time, endowed incrclv with animal passior.s and intellectual faculties, their project, aims and ox poctations are circumscribed by the narrow out line of human life. They forgot that instability mid decay are written, as with a sunbeam, upon all earthly objects that this world, with all its nageantry, and pomp, and power, is crumblin. into dust that this lifo is scarcely doserving of a single thought, excepting as it forms the in (reduction to another, and that he alone acts prudent or rational part, who frames his plans with direct reference to that future and endless state of being. She has so blinded the under standing, and debased the affections, that men never fail to invest some temporal good with fancied perfection, and idly imagine that the at' lainment of it would satisfy the desires and fill the capacities of the immortal spirit! How liltio do thoy know themselves ! The soul is not of the earth, and they will strive in vain to chain it to the dust. Though Us native strength has been impaired, and its puritv tarnished, and its jjuiy ciiaiigtiu,' it will not always bo a pnsunor hero. Send itfurth.if you will, to range througl the whole material universe, and like tho dove dismissed from the ark, it will return without finding a singlo resting place for it has resting place but the bosom of God. Maffdl, The Soul. The soul of man is a buildingof God: He hath laid out the treasures of His wisdom, power, and goodness in this noble struc turo j He built it for a habitation for Himself to dwell in ; and indeed, such noble rooms as the understanding, will, and affections, aro too good 'for any other to inhabit. But sin hath set open tho gates of this hallowed temple, and let in the nbominatiou which makcth desolate. All tho doors of the soul aro barred and chained up against Christ, by ignorance and infidelity: He seeks admission into the soul which Ho made, but findoth none. A forcible entrance Ho will not make ; but expects when the will shall bring 4 1 ini the keys of tho soul, as to the rightful owner. Uov. iii. 20. Flavcl. From the Democratic Review. THE SHOT IN THE EYE. ATItUE STORY OK TIIXAS BORDER LIKE. 11 V c. Wlt.KINS EIMI. ( Concluded.) Ono Jay wo had all turned out for a deer- drive. This hunt, in which tho dogs aro used for driving tho gnmo out of tho timber, scatters tho hunters very much ; they nro stationed at tho different 'stands,' which nro sometimes miles apart to watch for tho deer passing out J for tins reason tno pariy sel dom gets together again until night. Wo divided in tlio morning, ana sKirtcu up op posite sides of n wide belt ot bottom titnucr, while the 'drivers' nnd dogs poncirateu u 10 rouso the deer, which ran out on cither sido by the stands, and wcro known to tho hun ters. Wo wcro unusually successful, and returned to a lalo dinner at our host s, the nlanlcr's house. IJv dusk all had come in except my friend, whoso namo was Henry, nd a man named atoncr, ono 01 me ncigu bors, who had joined our hunt. Dinner was ready, and wo sat down to it, supposing they would bo in, in a lew moments. 1 no meal was nearly ovcr.when Henry, who was a gay voluble fellow, camo hustling into tho room, and with a slightly flurried manner addressed our host 'Squire, this is a strango country of yours! Do you let crazy pcoplo range it with cutis in their hands f Not when wo know it. Why I What bout crazy poopto 1 You look excited.' ' Well, I think I've had enough to mako mo feel a liltio curious.' What is it t What is it?' exclaimed ovn ry body coccrly. ' Why, I have met with cither the old liar ry himself a ghost or a madman ; and which it is I am confoundedly puzzled to tell.' 'Where? How?' lie threw himself into a chair, wined the perspiration from his forehead, and continu ed : 'You know, Sloncr and myself when wo parted from you all tins morning, took p the ri" lit hand sidoofthc bottom timber. Well, Sloncr accompanied mo to my 'stand,' where wo parted ; ho to go on to his ; and I havo seen nothing of liim since. Soon after he left me, a deer passed out I shot it wounded it and jumped on my horso to pursuo it. The deer had staggered at my fire, but was not so badly wounded as I sup posed, and led mo off, until it suddenly oc curred to mc that 1 might get lost, and I reigned up ; but I soon found that this sober second thought had come too late, and that 1 was already out of my latitude. I wan dered about nearly all day, though taking care not to go very far in any ono direction, beloro I camo across anything which prom ised to set mo right again. 1 .'it last came unou a wacon trail, and felt revived, for I and rivitcd out thcro; yon might have fol lowed it for hours and not been moro than a milo or so from tho placo you started from. That ghost of yours by tho way, may bo somo crazy fellow, who has wandored off in to these parts with mischiof in him ! DM you hear no gun V 1 1 thought I did -about an hour after parting with tho man, or devil, or whatever ! H . , .... . i .li no was nut I lie sounu was so mini, uuu ins tant, that, for fear 1 might ho mistaken, 1 did not go to it ; and the road had turned so fre quently, I could not tell whether it was in tho direction ho went oil' or not.' Hero thu driver interposed, saying that he had heard a rifle about that time on the right, but supposing it tn ho Stoner or Hen ry, ho thought nothing of it. And a half laughing discussion followed as to tho pro bable character of tho wood ghost Henry had reported of some asserting that lie was quiz zing us for these men wcro too much ac customed to tho exigencies of a hunter's lifo to ho for moro than a moment seriously .af fected by tho circumstances of Stnncr's non- arrival. In the midst of this, a horso's feet were heard galloping up to tho door, and a loud Hilloa!' followed. tho squire roso hasti ly and went out. In a moment after ho en tered looking palo and excited. ' Tom Dix (ono of Stoncr's noighbors) says that his horso has come homo without a rider, the reins upon its neck, nnd a clot of blood upon the pummel of tho saddle ! Dnys, he's hern shot ! Just as I suspected from tho first !' ' Tho crazy man !' ejaculated several. 'Strange ! Very mysterious business !' said others. ' I tell you what,' said the Squire after a nause, lias struck mo from tho first. It is that this strango looking fellow Henry saw, mistook him for Stoner, until ho looked into his face, for Henry's horso and general nil penrance nro not unlike his, and when ho found that ho was wrong, got out of the way nnd went on till he mot Stoncr himself, nnd has shot 1 1 i in I' 'No doubt of it!' said several. 'But it's a very mysterious afiair,'continucd lie, 'I know of no such looking man in this region us Henry described ; but at any rate he will ho hunted down to-morrow, for Slon cr was one of tho Regulators, and Hindi is a perfect blood hound ! Ho can hardly es cape him crazy or not crazy !' This seemed to ho tho most satisfactory solution of the difficulty, and as it was loo dark for us to do any thing that night, were thoy found his flcshlcss bones scattered on ovcry sido. Thoy were appalled. Tho reddest-bloated cheek among them blanched! It was terrible ! They seemed to bo doom ed 1 Thrco of their number dead and torn maniac or not, such n vengeance, and tho daring conduct of tho whole affair, wcro very imposing to their associations nnd prepos sessions, and thoy sympathized heartily with him. It was only whilo the general unccr- to pieces within ten days ; and yet not tho . taiuty left every man in doubt whether his slightest clue to tho relentless and invisible foe, but that ghostly story of Henry's, and tho tracks which only sctvo to tantalize them ! It must be somo dread supernatural visitation of llimr hideous crimes ! They shivered, while the great drops started from their foreheads, and without thinking of looking for nny trail, or gathering up tho bones, they started hack at full speed, spread ing tho alarm everywhere. I ho excitement now oceanic univorsju nnd trcmontious. Nearly tho whole country turned out for tho purposo of unravelling this alarming myste ry ; and tho superstitious frenzy was in no small degreo heightened by the report, that this man had been shot in tho samo way as tho others in the back of the head! The incidents wcro nil so unaccountable, that I own 1 felt no litllo sympathy willi tho popular association of a supernatural agency in tluir perpetration. Henry laughed at all this, but insisted that it was a maniac; nnd to account for the peculiar dexterity of his es capes and wholo manogement, related many anecdotes proverbial of tho cunning of mad men. The wildest, most absurd, and incred ible slorics now afloat among tho pcoplo concerning this deadly and subtle foe of the Regulators; for it was now universally be licvcd nnd remarked, that it was against them alone that Irs enmity was directed The slory of Henry was greatly improved upon and added to ; nnd, as somo reports had il, the Madman, as others, tho Bearded Ci host, was seen in half a dozen places nt tho samo time ; nowTuToot, stalking with enormous strides across somo open gludc from thicket to thicket passing out of sight again before the observer could recover from his surpiiso then mounted, ho was seen (ly ing like tho shadow of a summer cloud over the prairics,Jor beneath the gloom of fuicsis, always haggard and lean, dressed in skins with tho hair on, nnd that long, terrible, heavy rillo on his shoulder ! I noticed that there was only onu class of men who ven tured to assert that they had actually seen with their own oyns, these wonderful sights, and that was cnnslituted of those who cither had suffered, or from their characters and pursuit;, were most likely to suffer persecu tion from tho Ileculutors tho class ofliun- terio. in 'rants.

T ho trail was nar row, leading through scrubby thickets; and I was riding along slowly, looking down, in the bono of nieetihe tho tracks of somo of your horses, when tho violent shying of my horso caused mo to raise my eyes. And, by George ! it was enough to have 'stampe ded' a regiment of horo !

Ho was a thick-set, broad shouldered, burly-looking wretch, with blood shot eves, nnd faco bearing all tho marks of riotous debauchery.

Tho owners of cows thould pay particular at tention to milking. Children should not be trusted with this business, and there are many grown peoplo who never milk well, though they have been brought up to the business. If you would obtain all the milk from the cow, you must treat her with the utmost gentleness ; sho must not stand trembling under your blows nor under your threats. Soon after the bag has been brushed by your hind, and tho ends nftho teats havo been moistened a little with milk, it (lows hi rapidity, and all the veins or ducts near the teats aro completely tilled. Then it must be drawn oul immediately, or you will not gel the whole. You must not eit and talk you must not delay one moment, if you would have all the cow is then ready tu yield. The udder should be moved in ovcry direction at the close of milking, and the hands may beat it a little, in imitation of the beating which the calf gives it when sucking. An expert milker vvi 11 mike tho cow give ono quarter more in but tor, than a majority of grown milKcrs will. Ono season, says an experienced writer wo kept four cows in the home lot ; there was but littlo dilll-rence in the quantity of milk given by eioh. Wo had a rety slcndy hired mm, nf forty years of age ; ho had carried on a farm in New Hampshire, and had always been used to milk, ing ; but ho was eo blow tho cows had no pa. ticncc with him. Wo milked two of tho cows, and ho tho other two, and wo wcro but littlo moro than half as long as ho in milking, though wo got the largest mess by about one quart. On our remonstrating that he did not draw out all the milk, he said bis cows would not yield so much as thote milked by us. wo then mado an cxclnnge; he milk ed our two, and wo milked hi. In thrco weeks timo tho caso was reversed ; our mess exceeded his by nearly ono quart. Ho neier failed to atrip his cows to thn last drop ; but his inlohrti. Uf moileralUm prevented his obtaining what an active milker would have done. Young learners may practice on cows tint are toon to bo dried oil: They bhould bo taught, nl first, how lo take hold of thu tcatf, and Ihey will remember it ; but how common it is to lot each child chonso his own modo of milking. learners should know that the hand should be kept very near tho extremity of Iho teat, if they should milk with ease. Tho left aim should always press gently against tho leg of the cow ; fur then if she is inclined to kirk. t.lio cannot. with any lorco ; tlio cjnnot strike an object that loans against her ; but if sho raises up her foot, as she often will when her teats aru Mire, ihe milker will bo ready to ward offand keen it from the pail, much better than w lieu ho sits far off irom the row. 1 f In ifcra arc mado tamo and contlcby fro que nl handling when young, they aro not apt to him a monomaniac, and that thu disoaso had endow cd hi in with tho marvellous cunning tho staunch, murderous hate and tho un natural appearance, which had created such sensation.
