Burlington, June 3dili, 1817. The Knif'e-tJrinilcr. The great Geo. Caxxinu was a wag and a wit. Soutiiev once wrote a Jacobinical poem, beginning thus : " Cold 'wus the night wind; drifting fast the snow s fell ; Wide were the down', and shelterless and naked ; When a poor wanderer struggled on her journey, Weary and way sore." Whereupon Cansixu perpetrated the follow ing parody, which wo find in the last number of Chambers Cyclopojdia: l'mEND of Humanity.

The stago at which itio proper to cut grass for hay, tindotibtedlv varies with tlio different upecies. Somo kinds, as the orchard grass, ( Dactylas glamalra,) and the common "spire grass, )ina pratensis,) make only a small weight comparatively, in culms or seed stalks, hut in favorable soil throw up ait abundance of long, rich leaves. Whore a heavy growth of such grasses is produced, it is best to mow them twice or more in a season the first time when thev arc in llower,(or pooner if they lodge down,) and at such times afterwards as tlu'V will atlbrd a suitable burden. Hut if Ihe land is not rich, there will bo only a few seed-stalks, and it may in many cases bo better to let it dio and dry up, and permit the growth nt tlio leaves to rnnnnmi till the latter part of the season, or till a good crop has accumulated. It should ho remember ed however, that mall cases where there is a thick growth which lodges or falls down, it should at onco ho cut ( otherwise mo grass will spoil by fermentation, and tlio roots, also, will ho more or less killed. It isnrobablc that timothy, the herds-grass of Now-Knglaiul, (I'hlrum pratense,) attains its maximum ainoiintof nutriment at a later stage th in iim-i of the grasses commonly cultivated here. Tlio common opinion is thai its greatest value is at the time, or after, its seed is rij,r. Our experience docs not support this idea. We am aware that according 10 uiu experiments tif Sinclair, as given in the IIrtns Gramiuc us W'nliernensh. tho ripe stems of this crass af forded twiro the amount of nutriment given by the same quantity taken In the flowering stage. This statement lias probably had great inllu- ence in the minis of farmers in regard to tho ubject. Hut further resources m chemistry. hae shown that tho experiments of Sinclair aro not to bo relied on for accuracy. His pro cess was described in the work just referred to, page 2, as follows : 1 he crass, in a green or dry state, is sub mitted to the action of hot water till all its solu ble parts arc taken up. The linuoris is then separated from the woody fibre by means of blotting paper; it is then evaporated to dryness. The product, or solid mutter, is the nutritive mailer of the grass." In relation to tho experiments of Sinclair. I'rof. Johnston, in his lectiiics, remarks that they have In-t much of thuirvaluo since it has been saliefietonly ascertained l. ili.it tlio proportions ot Bolublo matter yielded by any species of grass, when made in to hay, varies not only with the age of the grass when cut, lint with tho soil, the climate, the season, the rapidity of growth, the variety of the seed sown, and with many other circum- tances which arc susceptible oi constant varia tion. " 2. Then the animals have the power of di gesting a greater or less portion of their food which is insoluble in water, Lvcn tho woody liliro oftho hay is not entirely useless as an ar ticle of nourishment experiment having shown that the maniim often contains less of the inso luble matter than was present in the food con sumed. " 3. That somo of tho substances which aro of the greatest importance in the nutrition of animals such as vegetable fibrin, albumen, ca sein, nnd legniuin are either wholly insoluble m water, or aro more or less perfectly coagula ted and rendered insoluble by boiling water. .Mr. r-inclair, therefore, must nave left behind, anion;: tho insoluble parts ol Ins hay, the grea tor proportion ol these .important substances. llence tne nature ami weight oi me ury extracts lie obtained could not fairly represent either Ihe kind or ouaiUitvol the nutritive matters which the hay is likely to yield when introduced into the stomach ol an animal." It is evident that even Mr. Sinclair himself was by no means confident aslo the conectnes of his deduction", for in relation to tho soluble matter of the grasses being taken as denoting accurately their value, he quotes Sir IIu.Miitr.r.v Daw, as follows: " Hut still these quantities of soluble matter, cannot be regarded as ab solutely denoting their value ; albuminous or minimis matters huvoino characters oi animal substances: sugar is more nourishing and ex tractive less nourishing than any other principle composed of carbon, hydrogen, ami oxygen ; certain combinations of these substances, like wise, may he innro nourishing than others." Upon thu whole, therelorc, though we should be in favor ofallowing timothy to come nearer to maturity than most other kinds ol grass, wo would cut it lor nay belorc much ot its seed is ripened. i he stems ot timothy, where tlio growth is rank, aro generally still" and coarse, and the bay is frequently too hard ami wiry to be relish hy rattle. To obii.ilo this objection, it is well to gie the hay a good surating in cock. Soon ifler Ihe grass is cut, or when it is fairly wilted, ind tho external moisture dried off, put it into coeus which will maKo irom hlty to sixty pounds (dry hay,) and let it remain in that situation for twenty-four to forty-eight hours. Then shako the day out lightly, in a drying day, and it win be loinid much moru sou and more agree- able to stock than if made in any other way i line is aiso gaincuiii tne making in tins way, the hay drying much more rapidly after it has neon sweated. v hero it is intended to be press ed and baled, or exported, the practice) of dry. nig ii in swam may uo, provided Uiu glass is not cut until quite ripo ; but tho hay will bo harsh and not as good, especially for sheep and cattle, as that mado in tho mode above de scribed. PcEsEitYitra Eons This is tho season to put up a blnse or eggs, against ' timo and need. There are various modes of preserving them. Lime-water has been found to answer well. Mr. II. A. Parsons, of ltull'ilo. informs ns that ho has been successful in preserving them with sail, no iai.es urge none jars, or tight keg, and packs tlio eggs the nmll eiul, first put ting in a layer of sail, and then a lavnr of taking care that the eggs do not touch tho keg or jar. fn tins way the vessel is filled to near tho ton, when it is carefully covered over and placed in a cool dark place. Air, P. Ins kept them in this way, perfectly good for tluee years. It isimportant that the eggs should be new, not moro than ten days old when put up, if it is in tended to keep them a great while.

We have but a vcrv faint knowledge of the material of which the Massachusetts Hegiment was comjHised, but to judge of them from the accounts of their ex- pious, which nave re.ieneii us siueu ineir nrmniiu Matainoras, we are convinced that the regiment con tained a very large infusion ol worthless mailer. We have seen more reports uf bad conduct respecting this regiment, than Irom any which bale gone to the wars, with the exception of the marauders under Col. Price, at Santa l'e. We arc aware that a lewineii,ol bad habits, can briim disgrace upon a whole regiment, and we are far Irom bclicv ins that the lnaioiilv of lire rein- ment me nf the character described, lint drunken riots have been of frequent occurrence, end insubordi nation lo the commands of sunerior olheers has. in one or two instances, occurred. Major Abbott lias been burnt in clligy, nnd one volunteer had been inarched through Ihe sireeis of .Matainoras, encased in a wbis kev c.'i-k. Willi the word " drunkard" written therem,. Two cold'blooded minders havu been committed by lliem ; three men descried, two of whom were killid oy tne nniians, mm one was captured in a slate ol in sanity. Several of the men hav e been publicly w hip ped. The New buryport Herald takes a diflercnt view of the conduct of the regiment, and thinks that, after taking all tilings into consideration, it has behaved re markably well. Uut two have died of sickness since their denarture from Itoston. Thisihe flernld nitri. butes to the foresight of Col. dishing, in advancing money to equip them with good comfortable clothing. Wo fearu from the Herald that the volunteer win, murdered the partner of .Mr. Sinclair, and whose es cape Irom prison we record above, belonged to com pany " t!," and liisiiame was Wayland. '1 lie regiment has uudoubtcdlv suflered from the ab sence, ol many of its officers. We believe that about one-hall ol the ta.iuiinsliave returned lo lb-Slates, fir Ihe purpo.-e of recruiting ilieirlienltli, Col. Wright has been absent Irom Matainoras lor seveial weeks, on a iit to the camp of (lenenl Taylor at Monterey, and Col. Cu-bitig has been confined lo his room with a broken ancle. A large share of the d uy and respon sibility has necessarily fallen upon .Major Abbott, who, ol nil the officers, it would seem, has been the most ac tive, and we are yet to learn thai lie lias not proved himself the inot competent officer attached to ihu regiment certainly he has had more that his share of duly to perform. The 1 lag ays that another brutal outrage was per petrated at Matainoras on the -J iust., under the fol lowing cireum-iances : " Some lime since a gentleman (perhaps an officer) of the 1st Indiana regiment, lett a walking cane Willi a Mr. blip, sdveisiimli, an need 1 reiieliiiKiu.for the nur- po-e ol having it capped with gold.

The following is an extract from a letter from tho camp of tho Massachusetts volunteers, published in tlio Uoston Transcript : " You would be charmed with our encamp ment on account of the bathing if nothing else. All tho Matainoras females, high and low.batho at least once each day generally in the eve ning, soon alter sunset and as me current is too btrong for their delicate limbs to contend against in the river, they resort lo the lakes in the vicinity of the cilv ourlake being especial ly favored by them.

J his fact lias been exhibited hy every action In which our forces have been engaged, and has been from time to time set forth hy the newspaper press ; but a complete expl.ui ilion of Ihe sen ires oftho " Wesl-Poinl- crs is given in the following extract from a commmiic.itioii published hy tho N.

Hightech Ca dels who left West Point liefijre graduating havo commanded volunteers in Mexico, and nineteen have commands in tho Ten Regiments and Mounted Riflemen. To find such a willing and efficient corps of officers, besides thoso remaining in tho regular army, springing from an institution whoso ex penses as it has been well said aro less than llio-e of a single frigate afloat, is truly gratify ing, and is the best test of tho merits and impor tance nf that institution. Tho following is tho principal part of the paper to which wc allude: 7'i'r.o, is lo be noticed tho universal good con duct oftho olliccrs of the regular army in Mex ico, moro than nine-tenths or whom aro grad uates of the military academy; their skilful inanieiivring and strict discipline at Palo Alio ; their personal prowess in tho hand to hand strugglo nt Rcsaca do la Palma ; their heroic daring and able combinations amid tlio iron hail from tlio frowning battlements of Alontcrev ; their chivalric valor and tlio almost magical evolutions of the artillery at lliiona Vista, mul tiplying itceir whenever dinger threatened, dis persing column after column hy its deadly fire, and, at last, as ir rooted to the ground, alone, and without an infantry support, .stemming tho headlong charge of the enemy's reserves nnd snatching victory from their very grasp ; their stem fortitude and patient endurance amid the wilds ol Now -Mexico ami caiiiorma; their bril liant capture of Vera Cruz, by tho scientific operations ol a skillully conducted siege, with the trilling loss o: i3 kuicii and wounded, in stead of sacrificing hosts of gallant men ill a deadly assault, like tho Hritish at Hadajos, where 1D2 1 brave hearts were laid low, of which num ber nfHil feir in the single night of the as'sault ; and last, though not least, in the fine strategic j movement of Cerro Gordo, where, by desperate l on to state in regard to " the cllects of jieace on valor, one bloody blow was struck at tho key of j a standing army, that the last thirty years sutli tho Mexican position, their flank turned, their ciently demonstrates, that from siipcramiatcd army routed and cut to pieces, tho difficult officers the country can hope l'or but little or mountain passes leaped in a day, the strong ' that efficiency which might bo in keeping with castle c,T Peroto captured without a shot, and , the gallantry of their youth ; and while the the very capital opened to our blows ! Nertmil. The moral restraint ol discipline, as I shown in tho regular aiinyhvliich has resiected the persons and property of the enemy, and even in the hour or victory, has committed noxccs scs thus stripping wnr or Ihe horrors which too often disgrace it. With what pride may we compare our occupation or Vera Cruz, with tho horrid nccnes ol" debauchery and pillago prac tised by the Hritish at lladajo. Third. Tho value or the Academy in fur nishing officers, on the breaking out of a war, to skilfully lead iho volunteers, and by disci pline, in six or eight months, making them the rivals of regular troops, as shown at Monterey by Davis' Mi-sissippians, Mitchell's Huckcyc, and nianchard's Loui-ianians ; at Sacramento by Clark's Missouri Artillery ; and at lliiena Vista by M'Keo's Kentucky Infantry, Davis' Mississippi Rifles, ai:d Marshall' Kentucky Cavalry all cainmanded by graduates of the Academy. Fourth. The value or even the partial in struction or those who le.-igned from tho Acad emy before graduating, and who li.ivo done good sen ice as officers or volunteers. Capt. Weight-. man, fiir instance, ol tho .Missouri Artillery, was it the Academy two or more years, and stood very high in lus class, ins Knowledge aim talents returned a good arconnt at Sacramento and other places in New Mexico, as did Major uilpm also. fifth. The patriotism or tho graduates, and those who havo resigned from the Academy, who have tendered their services to the govern ment tor the war. The lists I send you -how that about one hundred of those who had re signed have returned to the service with the volunteers or the new regiments of regulars siuco the decl nation of the war. There aro doubtless iii iny others that I h ive omitted. If I were to add all who have volunteered to go, if wauled, 1 would have to include almo-t every one who has been educated ai w est l'oint and since resigned. Among my acquaintance.-, 1 scarce know a graduate, who has resigned from tlio army, wlia has not vutuiueered Ins ser vices. .S'e'i. The advantages of a scientific and military education to thu whole military service 1st, 'as sh iwii hy tho l.nginoers in the con struction and delenco of Port llrown; in skil fully slmming thu wotks or Monterey ; in cap turing S'er.i Cm, by the sure ojicrations of a scientifically conducted siege; in opening roads ami crossing Jlieis , in rutnuiuiiin iwu itri oiis po-ts upon our bases and lines nf operation ; and in directing attacks upon the vital points of the enemy'!, lino nf battle, at Huena Vista and Cerro Gordo; 2d, as shown by the Tojiograph ical I'.nginecrs, in recoiinoitering pushpins and sketching the features of llio country; ad, as shown by the lidnauce in tho period prepara tion and preservation of arms and iniiuitions nf war; lib, as shown by the Artillery in the ad mirable iiiaimjiucring of batteries, and its accu rate and rapid lire on every battle-field, in tho storming nf entrenchments, or in bombarding a rnrtllioifcily; oth, as shown by the Infantry and Dragoon in their tactical evolutions in tho face of the enemy, their '..em discipline in resisting with Iho biyonet ine most iiirious cnarges, tuiu their almost reckless valor in assaulting the most forinid.iblu obstacles; and fith, as shown by every department of tho Stall' in the execu tion of llio varied and difficult duties devolving upon lliem. S'centh. Every officer graduating at tho academy, being educated in every branch of mil itary instruction, has boon able, when not re quired for duty with bis particular arm, to ren der signal ser ices with other corps, as his beun shown in various Instances by olliccrs uf topo graphical engineers and dragoons serving as artillery, Infantry acting as cavalry, nrtillery doing llio duty of engineers, and oriln.uico and engineers performing almost every variety of .stall'diitics.

Will the most violent opponent of the Military Academy say that the contest will not bo shortened a single month in conse quence of the instruction oliUined by our olli ccrs of regulars ami volunteers who have been educated there ? I will venture to assert, that tlio value oftho Academy in the siting nf treas ure alone, will bo more in this .Mexican war than tho total cost of fire such institutions fur a itlinle century; anil by w hat sum can wo reckon what it has added to the lustre or our arms ? iMnth. Tho invasion of Mexico by our pres ent army, ns compared to that of Canada, tho army of 1812. In Cauail i, during lira and a hutf years, wilh larger forces than the en-my, nur d'fenti out numbered our i ictories ; our g il lis in prisoners nf war wero less than our losses ; r.nr tinphics wero few, n ;' our conquests scarce extended buvotid tho camps we occupied. In tlio present Mexican war wc have, in a single year, opposed nn enemy four times as numerous ; won twenty victories; captured 20,000 soldiers; taken (WO cannon ; gained an immense amount of small arms and munitions or war ; rarried one fortified city by assault and another by siege; secured, by tho tcrrorof our arms,two formidable: castles without firing a gun ; and extended our conquests over the immense territory or Mexico an I California. At tho breaking out of the war of 1812, there wore not seventy graduates nf the Academy holding commissions, with few hon orable exceptions, our scientific corps were made up oftho refuse of foreign armies, and almost an entire ignorance or military organization and the art or war was conspicuous in ovcry depart ment of thu Hurvirc. At the breaking out of the present Mexican war tho officers of our army were mostly graduates of the Acad emy; our statf and scientific corps were filled with men of talent and military information ; our ordnance, both in its fabrication and service, had reached a very high tate of perfection ; and our infintry and dragoons could rival in disci- rline and evolutions the best veterans of Kurope. think it will not be denied that this striking diflerencc in means and results, is duo chiefly to Ihe high scientific and military education, given to our officers at tho .Military Academy. An army that has good officers will always have good troops. Tenth. Tho triumphant refutation of tho charges brought, on the 27th ol' January, 1810 a Tew months befiire the commencement of the Mexican war by the Committee on Militia, of the House of Representatives, in a Report by its chairman, the Hon. J. A. Hlack, of South Car olina. This Honorable Mister, whoso " Honor was more Ix-fore his name than after," referring to our regular army, says, " it is ineffi cient as a reliable means of national defence " and "corrupting to the morals of society, Continuing his precious demagogiici-in, he goes committei: ironW he the lxi In deny lu them the irriitituile and aire nf the country Jnr . serttces, yet e.Vierieiice teaches that the public safety toi bids a nuance uynii them in the hour oi Han ger.
