11Y 'CAUL 11AYMONI).
Is there a power lv which nny hu
man boing can foretell a special oventT
Hits is a question wo havo never lieen
ablo to deciilc. lteason always tells
us no faots sonictimes answer yes.
Wo reason that no special and peculiar
event can be predicted with certainty
as to titno and place, because it im
plies, tlnoiich all tho millions of
chances njxainst its happenini', that
this tniiiiitu result was planned and
ordained long before tho timo for its
accomplishment had an oxistenco ; and
not only so planned and ordained, but
that this knowledge of that special
futtiro was conveyed to a finite or
limited mind. And this, if a fact,
again implies that not only that event
was specially ordered, but that the
millions of apparent chances against
its happenini; were also ordered to
complete that trivial result. And
then, coiucr a step beyond tins airalti,
it follows that if these millions of con
tingencies were ho ai ranged as to pro
duco that event, other millions, with
tho millions of mulliplis ot iniUiotis,
wero pre-arranged to force a certain
result of each apparent contingency
so that, in summing up, we can have
no contingency at all, but only a fore-
nrilnttmirr nf f s-ifliiu trnni Miu lwwmitmifr
ordaining of trifles from the beginning
of motion. This, it will bo readily
perceived, destroys all idea of any
chance, or any freo agenoy.
To uring this matter lorcibly homo
to tho most obtuse perception, let us
consider a simple illustration. General
taws or oestimes we arc in some oegree
able to understand. Wo know that
tho general laws of man's being give
mm three-score years ami ten j but wo
find that what wo call contingencies
cut oil millions on millions before fir-
rivintr at ibis atro while thev carry
thousands beyond tho verv fewest
number indeed end'niii exactly at tho
fjiven timo of the supposed ireneral
law. So if wo tako any thing else a
tree for instance. Wo comprehend
tho general law of its life, growth and
duration. Mow suppose that a tree,
with its infant stem yet sproutinc from
the 'earth in the midst of a dark and
uiu'xtilored forest, bo destined to perish
by tho woodman's ax in exactly one
hundred and fifty-six years, three
months, thirteen days, ten honrsr fifty-
seven minutes, and three seconds, (for
if tho event is minutely ordained, tho
timo must also bo as minutely,) it fol
lows that a man, also having a minute
destiny, must also be born, perhaps
moro than a hundred years later, and
it may bo thousands ot miles away,
who must, m spito of all apparent
chances to the contrary, bo there at a
hxcil second of his own eventful life,
to give tho destructive blows. Can
any sound reason support such a theory
as tins 7
Hut then again, on tho other side,
wo havo thousands ot recorded .tieta,
which prove, with all tho strength that
can bo given to human testimony, that

curately portrayed in the present, that

Hints for Farmers Household and Garden,
Onr Eeoeipt for Curing Meat.
As tho season lias arrived when cur
ing meat is in order, wo republish as of
old, our famous receipt for curing beef,
pork, mutton, hams, ifcc.,. as follows :
To ono gallon of water, tako li
pounds of salt, pound of sugar,
ounce of saltpetre, ounco of potash.
Omit the potash unless you can obtain
the pure article. All druggists keep it.
In this ratio tho pickle can be in
creased to any quality desired. Let
these bu boiled together until 8 11 tho
dirt from tho sugar rises to the top and
is skimmed oft. 1 lien throw it into a
tub to cool, and when cold pour it over
your beef or pork. The meat must be
well covered with pickle, and should
not bo put down for at least two days
after killing, during which timo it
should be slightly sprinkled with pow-
neieu saltpetre, which removes 1111 me
surface blood, cto., leaving the meat
fresh and clean. Somo omit boiling
tho pickle, and find it to answer well.
though the operation ol boiling puri
fies the pickle by throwing off tho dirt
always to bo found in salt and sugar.
If this receipt is strictly followed, it
will requiro only a singlo .trial to prove
its superiority over tho common way
or most ways of putting down meat,
and will not soon bo abandoned for
auy other. Tho meat is unsurpassed
for sweetness, delicacy and freshness of
LOOK TO THE IMPLEMENTS.
Wo, desire, at this season of tho year,
to say that It is a lamentable fact that
many farmers lose as much from a want
of proper caro of implements and ma
chinery as from tho actual wear-and-tear
of them. Itcpeatcd wetting and drying
injure, sooner or later, any kind of
wood work ; tho moisture getting into
tjio cracks soon begins tho work of de
cay. This may be prevented by tho
timely and occasional application of
some cheap paint. Miich has been said
and written upon tho value of tool
houses, and it is hardly necessary for
us to add our mite to the general array ;
hut providing a tooVhouse is not all
that should bo done, if tho shovels,
spades and forks are brought into it
with the (hit sticking to them, and 111
that condition aro allowed to remain
through tho winter, or until they aro
again needed. All practical farmers
know how much better a bright plow
turns the furrow, how much easier it is
on tho team and driver, and yet they
will bring their plows and harrows in
every fall with tho dirt thick upon
them, and let them bo so until again
wanted, entailing a great deal of in
There aro various mixtures which
might be applied to the iron to prevent
rusting, tho cheapest of which is com
mon (unsalted) grease. A better article
may befound by melting together six
pounds of flesh (not salted) lard and
two of rosin. An old iron pot is a
good thing to keep and compound the
As soon as a tool is dono
being used for tho season, clean it off
and givo it a coat of this mixture, and
even if it remains undisturbed for
years, it will como out as bright as
when put away, implements properly
cared for will not only last uearly twice
as long as when this is not tho case,
but, as wo Baid before, thoy aro far bet
ter in every way.

favor any and all efforts mado by tho
department of agriculturo to encourago
tho pioduct:oii ot sacchanno crops in

sugnr beef, it is rather a reproach upon
the enterprise of Northern agriculture

of Brigham Young, succeeded in pro

, , . . - , ,
been slowly imitated by voluntary en-
terpnso in tlm states of Delaware, New
Jersey, Indiana, Illinois and Main, with
irregular anil varying results. Perhaps
the case would have been different but
for the unfortunate attempt of tho de-
partment of agriculturo to forco a sud-
den development of the sugar produc-
tion on an immense scale by means of
a ramd and widespread cultivation of
the Chineso sorghum, which proved a
lamentable failure. Since that date tho
departniont lias given encouragement
to efforts at sugar-making from Indian
io euons ai sugar-maK ng irom inaian
corn and o her crops, the general efTect
of which has been to weaken the cu -
ture of tho sugar-beet and of the tropi
cal sugar cane, respecting tho saccha
nno properties ot which staples there
has never been any doubt whatever.
Our own judgment is that if tho atten
tion of tho country as regards sugar
making could be concentrated upon
thoso two crops the ono for tho Gmlf
states and the other for the North and
West the result would be far more
gratifying than could possibly bo at-
tained in any other way. 'The consump-
