Theae lines, usually ascribed to Hudibras, are really much older. They are to be found in a book published in 1656. The same idea is however expressed in a couplet published in '?>42. while one of the few fragments of Me nan- | 'ler. the l?reek writer, that have l?een preserv ed. embodies the saine idea in a single line. The couplet in Hudibras is. '? For those that fly may fight again. Which he can never do that's slain.''

It is also an injunction of the Chinese priesthood, and a carefully observed household custom, to kill immediately every hen that crows, as a preventive against the misfortune which the circumstance is supposed to indicate. The same practice prevails throughout many portions ot the United State*. (p* A aua u-uiied Wm A Oregory died ?od driily in Tslbot county. Md , last week, f-om in temp? a*?.

HOW TO USE SPIRIT OAS. Most persons imagine thnt it in the fluid which explodes in case* where accidents occur. This I is not so: it is the vapor either in the lamp or can, which rising and mixing with the air, ?omes ! nnd exploding sets if l?QU?d. scattering it about. If you take alcohol, or an alcoholic liquid. ; ?n<l put It in an open vessel. where the vapors cannot collect, and light it, it will burn quietlv until the liquid contains so little alcohol tha't it will sustain flame no longer. The burning of brandy is an instance of this truth, familiar to many. It is evident then that the fluid does not explode This, in part, explains why, in trie face of such dreadful warnings, many" per ?<>ns still persist in filling lamps whila lighted; they that if they avoid bringing the liquid in contact with the light, that no bad consequences | will eu*ue, and (as they think) with experience t<> guarautce its truth?for havo they not filled lighted lamps ten, twenty, or on* hundred times before, without accident ? Let all who will still continue the practice remember that though they may for years have done so without injury and might for many future ones it is because this vapor has never communicated with the flame, but has l?ecn dissipated in the surround ing air. that they have doue so with impunity. Let them also remember, that it may com- ! municate at any time, and that no amount of knowledge, no amount of presence of mind, can save them from a fearful death, or at least a severe injury If gas is milky orcloudy, smokes in a lamp newly trimmed and cleaned, or burns ' with a pale flame, that gives but little light do not use it. In the first case, there is either too much camphene, or the alcohol is not of proper strength?111 the second, it has been kept too j long?and in the third the proportion of alcohol J is too great. In the latter case, in aldltion to i giving less light, it burns away more quickly. | The lamps should be trimine I and filled only in day time, to avoid the dangers before named, and the ends ol tul?es should be covered with a ' cap wheu the lamp is not in use. to ke?p the tops of the wicks clean, and to prevent the ? evaporation of the burning fluid through them. | These few cautions and directions being ob served, there is no greater danger in using a camphene or spirit gas lamp, than there is in ' using an oil lamp. ArooT.?To go afoot has ever been deemed the extreme of poverty or folly, and has accord- ' ingly been marked with deserved contempt. I We ourselves have drawn largely on the scorn due to such a proceeding. We have had it darted at us in glances, shot iu taunts, or poured 1 down in condolences. The calm pity expressed in the face of the Arab when he pranced by us ' on his steed of the desert, we looked upon as natural to tho man and his circumstances, and bore it. We could excuse even the scorn with 1 which an Audalusian eaballero. mounted on his club-tailed rittiru. regarded us. as we trudged ' along the wretched roads of his country, but at ; times we have suffered beyond endurance. We have been looked down upon by a fat priest on a sore-backed, spavined uiule. which could not limp as many miles in two hours as we could stride in one; and we have more than once been i oflered a lift by a costermonger in a donkey cart. Once. too. on entering a Spanish rentu, after having done a journey afoot, of which we were I rather proud, we heard our hostess explain. ajK>logetically. to a neighbor, that the English ! did not walk because they could not afford to j ride, but that it was a whim, a fancy of theirs ' ?mh eaprirho, una fantasia. But the bitter- ' est sense of degradation, from this perversity of ours, was laid upon us in Portugal We were iQ * river steamer going to Alhandra. the ter mi nation of the lines. Among the passengers was a Portugese countess, fat oily, rather gar- I licky, and adorned on lip and chin with a very sparce crop of hair, as countesses in Portugal are apt toV. The bustle of embarcation and the heat had produced a puffness and suffusion which kept tan and kerchief in constant action; and we. in pity lor her condition, made a little | seat and awning for her with the bags and cloaks on the deck. A gracious bow and a wave of the fan when she left the vessel, showed that we had thereby won consideration. On the ! shore was a vehicle which made us stare. It was an antiquated, cumbrous, dust-cov- . ered machine, built somewhat after the fashion | of a coach ; and to it was attached?what think you ? mules? asses? No! bullocks' Ay! ! bullocks, and actually yoked, too, as they would have been to a plow. Into this our countess stumbled with an evident sense of dignity and ! grandeur. The driver smote with his goad? the oxen woke up and began to creep along ?the wheels creaaed. and on went the vehicle majestically slow. Of course, we soon out stepped it, but ever and anon, as wo stopped to look at something on the road, it would pass and repass us. and were then conscious thut a glance of ineffable disdain was darted on us troui within, and that the fair inmate, swelling with a consciousness of superiority, was indig nantly regretting that she had ever condescend ed to noticc, or be noticed by, a fellow who could journey afoot.?Blade wood'' a ztue. Womax is this Gardes.?Much in these days are said about the sphere of woman. Of this vexed question we have nothing now to say. The culture of the soil, the body and soul are our themes. Rich soils, healthy bodies, pure, cultivated souls, these are what we are ; aiming at. And to this end we recommend that every country woman have a garden that she keeps and dresses with her own hand, or at least that she supervises and manages. The culture strawberr es. blackberries, gooseber ries. currants and garden vegetables are as de lightful and profitable as anything in which woman can engage. She may sprinkle her gar den with flowers. All the better for that. A snowball iu this corner, a rose in that, a dahlia bed there and a moss border here will not be out of place. Only let the substantial and use ful constitute the chief part. A touch of the ornate like a riblion on a gi*?l bonnet, is not in the least objectionable. In all the schools the* girls study Itotany. In all families the woiu in ought to practice b ?tanv It is health- ? ful, pleasing, and useful. The principle* of horticulture are the principles of botany put ' into practice. Farmers study agriculture, why j should not their wives and daughters study j horticulture? If any employment is feminine. ' it would seem that this is. If any is healthy ' this must be. If any i* pleasurable none can more so than this. A rich bed of strawber ries. a bush of blackberries or currants. aU?rder , of flowers produced by one's own hand, what can well afford a more rational satisfaction? We say to all our country sisters, have agarden. if it is only a small one. and do your best with it. Plant it with what pleases you best, with ago-xi variety, and see what you can do with it. What woman cannot raise beets, tomatoes, uiebms, onions. Icttucc and furnish her own ta ble with them! What woman cannot plant a rasberry bush or currant or gooselnrry, and tend it will? Come, g.nnl woman, study your health, your usefulness your happiness, and your children s also. Book P \it x i n ?One of the most practical eases of B<?ok Farming'' that has come to our knowledge is told us by a friend: A young Maryland farmer, a reading man. got hold of Liebig's great work on agricultural chemistry soon after its publication, and be came convinced of the propriety, notwithstand ing that his farm was limestone land, of ma king a fresh application of that fcrliliter. Af ter a good deal oi hesitation on the part of his father, the lima was tried, and after being tried, omtinued. The improvement in consequence has been such, that where five and six btrrels of corn was the outside, as much as fifteen per acre have been made, and other crops in pro portion. A debt, the interest of which they could scarcely keen down before, has beeu paid off. and they have bought field after field with ready money from neighbors who could not af ford to buy lime, or agricultural books.
