AN ESS A ONTO SWINE.— Josh Bil lings says : " Ilogs generally are quudripod. There is n great deal uv internal revenew in a hog; there ain't much nioro waste in them than there is in a oyster. Even their tails can bo worked up into whissels. Ilogs are good quiet boarders; they eat what 1 A set before them, and don't ask cny foolish questions. There is a great many breeds amongst them. Some are a close corporation breed, and some are built more apart, like a hemlock slab. Some are full in tho face, like a town clock, and some arc so long and lean as & cow catcher, with a steel-plated noso on them. They can awl ruto well; a hog that knot rute well licz been made in vain. They aro a short lived animal, flnd generally dio as soon as they get fatt. The nog can be larnt a grate nianny cunning things, tipping over the swill barrels, and finding holes in the fense to git into a cornfield; but tharc ain't ony length to their memry, and it iz aw ful hard work for them tew find tho same hole tew git out at, especially if you arc at all anxious they should. 86?" The sons of literary men aro said to bo dull as a rule, and tho daughters to inherit tho ability of their sires. Two great novelists ap pear to inherit their literary succes sion in tho fomalo lino. Miss Thack eray's writings prove that she is en dowed with her father's genius, as well as with a womanly power pecu liarly her own. Miss Dickens is said to bo the author of tho etory "Aunt Margaret's Troubles," which has recently appeared ; and if such is the case, the young authoress may be congratulated on having made au extremely successful debnt, and one

worthy in every way of her father's reputation. wsr When you raotirc a boaqoet, •priuke it with cold water, and pot it in a tmw! containing •om* tomft mhK whc-h noamhe* the root* an.J kerf* the piaat* fw*i m *»ew.

But the young man plead with him, and out of |>er*otial kiudncM he said: 'Very well, I will take it.' In two days they struck a vein in this well, and it was an immensely fruitful well, and he sold his share for two hun dred thousand dollars. The young man was present when tho check was drawn 011 New York for tho amount, and he felt liko death and mourned, and said 'lt is always my luck; I am a little too late.' And the man said, "You may take ten thousand of it if you want.' The young man thought ho was jesting, but he assured him that ho was not, and said, ' I will mako it tweuty thous and if it will do any good. Or,' said be, ' I will make it fifty thousand.' 4 Well,' said he, ' take the whole of it, Ido not want it. Give me six thou* sand, and you may have the advan tage of your good luck.' And so he gavo tho young man tho advantage of tho two hundred thousand. All of you that would havo douo that may rise up." A COOL FARMER.— We have seen and heard of cool proceedings ere this, but tho conduct of the Vermont agriculturist was positively " iced." He once sold a load of hay to his neighbor, who, contrary to"his own expectations, after seeing it weighed stayed to sec it unloaifed. But a few forksfull were oft'when a bounc ing rock rolled from tho load; then another, and tlicu a third upon the floor. "- What's that ?" er in a loud voice. " Most all herd-grass this year," replied tho deaf man. "But, 6co here," continued tho other, pointing to tho bowlders which lay arrayed in judgment against the dishonest haymau, what does all this moan ?" " Shan't cut nigh as much hay this year as last," replied the dealer in herd-grass. Just as he had finished the last sentence down thundered a rousing chunk of granite, making a deep iu dontation in tho barn floor with one of its sharp angles. "I say, neighbor N," screamed the purchaser of granite, " I want to know what in the these are ?" poiuting to the bowlders and the big lump of granite. Mr. N. took up a mighty forkfull of the herd-grass, gave it a toss into tbe Lay-loft, then, leaning upon bis fork, ejecting bis bog* «joid of to bacco, and replacing it witb • fresh osc. be took a view of tbe fragments of wall that lav before bim. and with OM of tbe hiaadest sasilw be rilwil —~ 7Vm m fwnb.~ I»*a.

Few people are «xactlv awai*, until tbey tiy it, how exceed ingly easy it is to spoil such a pleas ing combination as this ; a piece of calceolaria, scarlet geranium, or blue salvia, would ruin it effectually. Such decided colors as these require to be grouped in another vase, aud should not even be placed on the same ta ble with the sweet peas; tbey .also require a much larger preponderance of foliage to show them off to ad vantage than is wanted by the flow ers of more delicate colors. It is un questionably difficult to resist the temptatiou of "just putting in" this or that flower, because " it is such a beauty;" a beauty it may be, and so may be an apricot, but it would be out of place in a basin of green pea soup! There is at least one proper place for every flower, and lot every flower be in its place.— The Garden Chronicle. USF In Paris somo one has been making an analysis of tbe air we breathe in a theatre or other close house, containing a thousand per sons or more, lie carried into a theatre at ten o'clock at night a bot tle of ice placed on a plate, aud then collected tbe vapor which rapidly condensed on the outside of tho bot tle and flowed down on tho plate. At first this vapor thus collected had the smell, the taste, and, so far as could be determined, every chemical quality belonging to the waters ofthe most deadly fover marshes. Under tho microscopo, this water was first clear, but aoon, that is to say in a week, it was found to be full of fine animalcule. A little later on, these auimalculre had grown, and the big ones were seen pursuing and devour ing the little ones. Still later on, at tbe end of two months, the water was thick with animalcule, various forms were seen, and still the work of destruction was going on. At last, but three hideous monsters were seen microscopic monsters, of course, since they were contained in. a drop of water—and these were still fighting to see which would devour the other. At the end of three months the water became clear and miasraatio again.

What may be the weight of mischief manufactured each day along with the cigars, I don't know, but I fowl safe in stating that it is at least equal with the tobacco. This factory was erected in 1750, is 660 feet long by 525 wide, and is sur rounded by a mole. It is the princi pal factory in the kingdom, as every one uses tobocco in some shape iu Andalusia, not excepting the ladies, but it is when they are on the shady aide of forty that they puff and cog itate. The best workers among the girls earn about forty cents per day; the poorest about half that amount.- Every night they are all searched." During the epidemic of in ter mittents in the West this season, the whole immense stock of Ayer'tf Ague Cure became exhausted, and the producing power of his Labora tory, was fouud inudaquate to meet the demand. Many who knew its extraordinary virtues for the cure of Chills and Fever, paid exorbitant prices for it to thoso who were for tunate enough to have a supply oil hand. Some of our neighbors paid ten dollars for a bottle, while the regular price is but one, and assure us it was on the wholo the cheapest remedy they could buy, even at that figure. They praise it for two qual ities: first, that it cures, and last that it leaves the health unimpaired. —lowa Standard. LitniT>—No dwellings ore so pleasant, because so healthful, as thoso which have a southerly aspect. People who live in houses looking chiefly to the north, sutler seriously, if not sensibly, from the imperfect sunning of the air; the unkindliness of the aspect impartb itself to the oc cupants. Our wiudows should look southward. No one can say how much sickness and debility, how much ill-temper and moroseness are not owing to self imprisonment in dark streets and dull coiintirtg-housea and back parlors, iuto which a sun beam never enters: " Truly the light is sweet, and a pleasant thing it is for the eyes to behold the sun." School-rooms, most of all, should btf on the sunny side of the house; no sensible schoolmaster ever place* them anywhere else. ffgT Some people are nrikif enough to ask. Can Cong rase dp mm andao?
