Dr. Gardner came to the fazeuda of Sane, situated at the font of the Sierra de Santa Brida. nenr the en trunee to a small valley. Dr. G. remarked taut in this valley and throughout this prov iiice tho an aeon la attains an enormous size, sometimes reaching forty feet in length; the largest which he saw measured thirty-seven foet, but was not alive. Ifc.had been taken under the following cireu tanccs : "Some weeks before our arrival a{ Sape." writes Dr. ii., kithe favorite riding-horso of Senhor La?*o sira, wliich had beon put out to pasture not Tar from the house, could not be found, althou-h strict search was mad** for it all over the fazen da. Shortly after this, one of his vanucires. (hordsuieii,) in going through tho wood by tho side uf a small stream, saw an enormous sucu ruju susjiended in the fork of a tree which hurz over the water. It was doad, but had evi dently been floated dowa alive bv a recent flood, and being in an inert state/it had not been able to extricate itself from the fork be fore the waters fell. It wa3 dragged out to the open country by two horses, and was found to measure 37 feet in length. On opening it. the bones oi a horse in a somewhat broken condi tion, and the fle*h in a half digested state, were tound within ; tho bone3 of the head were un injured. From these circumstances we con clu'io that the boa had swallowed the h??rse on tire. In all kinds of snakes the capacity for swallowing is prodigious 1 have often seen one not thicker than mv thumb swallow a frog as large ns my fist; and I onca killed a rattle snake, four feet long, and of no thkknes* which had swallowed not less than three larg* frogs_ I have also seen a very slender snake that frequents the roofs of houses, swallow an entire bit three times its own thickness If su-h be the caso with these smaller kinds, it is not to be wondered at that one thirty-seven teet long should he ablo to swallow a horse, particularly when it is known that previous to doing go, it breaks the bones of the animal bv coiling itself around it. and afterwards lubri cates it with a slimy matter, which it has the power of secreting in its mouth." Xever Whitrwa * h Tr e k s should set his face like fliut against all sorts of compositions that leave coating upon th<* bark no matter what they are nor what is claimed lor them by charlatans orempirics. The arbori culturist of Boston Common made a sad mistake in coating those tree? wirh some sort of composi tion. of the consistency of paint. The objection to this treatment is. that it interferes with the functions of the epidermis. But, say the users ot these compositions, thovara necessary for tho destruction of insects. As well might they ad vocate tho whitewhaahing of men. women and children, when infested with the insects of tho genus Pedi out us, in order to got rid of them, as that of painting or whitewhashing fruit or ornamental trees to rid them of aphidrx, habi tants of their bark or outer covering Tf.e tree* grow and seem to flourish, notwithstanding this mistaken treatment, not became of it?it is no iaoro evidence in favor of it?than the fact that some persons who seldom or never bathe, yet enjoyed good health, is against bathing and sur face cleanliness in generally. There is no dan ger of keeping fruit trees too clean, and thisean be done with pure soft water, or if a little soap be mixed with it, it may cause bo harm. A good and the safest wash for trees, is pure water The tree or plant is enveloped with an epider mis like an animal; and for any one to say that this has no function to perform beyond that of covering the organism animated with life, as the envelope does tho letter, is to publish his ig norance of vegetable physiology. The condition of the covering of tho animal is deemod some whu: essential to the state or condition of the animal?so of the tree, its bark or ooverinz is indicative ot the healthful vigor of the tree or of its opposite condition. Any one at all ac quanted with fruit trees: whether from a knowl edge of long cultivated or long observation is prepared to Judge of the condition of an orchard or garden of fruit or other trees, by looking at the condition of the bark. TdeDi-tchmax's -Change. "?On the morn ing after the Bowery Bank had closed its one o! our German citizens possessing a ?o bill of its issue, went into one of our large furniture establishments and purchased articles amounting to $2.75, and proffered his bill in payment. The boy clerk refused it, but the Dutchman insisted that all was right, say ing? ?Itisgoot; the pank will open; dercs lot of bceples uere ; bank is jpening already." Still, the clerk persisted in refusing to take the bill Ihe proprietor hearing tho discussion put in his oar. and the German went through with his former lingo. Knovviiig that the bill* are well secured against loss to the hoi lers, he of course accepted the bill and offered aschange a Quarter of a dollar in sp*cic and a two dollar bill on tho same bank 1 ho German was taken back for a moment, but finally said: '?
