I have left thy quiet retreat.
From thy social pleasures I roam,

Ft r well to thee. Home of my heart
I leave thee but cannot forget;
From thy Promo.. thy friends fir apart,
My ■pirit shell turn to thee Yet.
Oh ! how to Itiy ohrlter rd Incr
From 'man rind his wearisome strife.
To 'wipe ■s on winßs of I dose,
And spend there !he remnant of life
nut a voice—stern voice--calle me on,
The voice of Truth •nd of God,
And life', toilsome race must I run
'Till called to a higher abode.
Then nnward—away—nb, away !
I will not repine Si my lot,
Nor lingering fondly delay
Aroond thee—my own natal spot!
Then farewell—yes, sa.:ly—forewell,
(Thy wanderer Freaks thus to thee.)
In his heart thine image shall dwell
While his bark is on life's troubled sea
And blest be thine inmates with peace,
Their portion in mercy still be,
'Till Earth's fitful vision shall cease
And Haven shell claim them from thee
Mots is an article of use in nearly every
family in this country ; yet very little attention
is paid to its preparation by most of our farmers.
It is enough for them that the hams are taken
out, salted at - randont, smoked in an imperfect
manner, and this is then called baron.—.
The western part of Virginia is most fatuous
for its fine bacon ; and ihm , e at the north who
have in substance adopted the mode 'mimed
there, find their bacon greatly improved.
Too heavy hogs are not so good lur bacon as
that are smaller, if equally well fattened. One
that will weigh two hundred is la..ge enough, as
the salt will strike through the pieces inure
equally, and the smoking be more perfect. i
is essential, for the first tate bacon, and the pnr:,
should be corn-fed; at least if any thing is used
to aid in fattening. it should be in the first part
of the time, and corn he given fur five or six
weeks previous to s'aughtering. The pork of
corn•fed pigs will he hard and comp irt, and the
kidney fat; instead of being soft and unctuous,
like lard, will be solid, like beef suet.
In the best esiablishment Inc making bacon.
three perks or salt and sne of saltpetre
are used for every llatltlSulld pounds of pork; the
salt to be measured, and the saltpeter reduced to
powder. ihroughly incorporated or mixed with
it. None but the beg salt should oe used in
making baron. At the south, that which is
produced at the lienhrw i works, at 11. e firm
crystallization, is preferred ; at the north, the
coarse salt of the Onondaga works, or that pro
duced by evaporation, is to be chosen as more
pure than any other kind.
• The prepared salt is tw he thmoughlv rubbed
nn the meat, anti then liberally sprinkled over
the outside. There is little dander of oversalt
front quantity ; it is length of time that
duces the result. The meat is to be laid, wit.;
the skin side down, in good casks ; the hams
and shoulders first, and dien the smaller pieces.
Salt must be sprinkled over the bottom of the
cask before the meat is laid in. At the fourth
or fifth day, the meat must be taken up and
again thoroughly rubbed with the salt. At this
period of the process, some use a teaspoonful
of powdered red pepper to each piece, arid the
whittle is replaced, after any bloody or impure
brine that may have formed in the cask is re
moved. In about two weeks, the smaller pieces
will he fully salted, and should be taken 'from
the cask, anti the remainder teparked ; those
that were at the top being now placed at the
bottom, as pressure will prevent the passage of
the brine through the meat, if the position of
the pieces is not changed. The shoulders will
he struck through in about three weeks, and the
hams in four.
Smoking is the next important part of the
business, and should be well dune, or good bacon
cannot he mule. Smoke-houses areliisti illy too
small ; the meat hangs too crowded, and mo near
the fire. The pieces should by no means
touch the wall, or each other ; but space Mr the
free circulation of the smoke should in all rases
be allowed. The time required fur smoking is
the same as that for salting.—four weeks for
hams, flare weeks for shouldere, and two
weeks for the other pieces. or suiddloigs
Damp weather is improper for smok;• - g meat
as the baron, from the dampness that is apt to
setle on the meat, acquires a bitter flavor, in
some respect like that given by pyroligneous
acid. • Sound maple chips, or blocks of hickaty
wood, are chosen for smoking meat; though the
celebrated Hamburg hams are smoked with oak
wood alone. The smoke-house should be at a
moderate temperature, as that wili greatly, assist
In preventing the appearance of dampness on
the meat. Two fires a day, if property made:
will finish the smoking in the time specified
above. Some throw, occasionally, powdered
red pepper on the fire, as it is said to prevent the
attacks of insects on the baron after smoking,
and somewhat improves the flavor.
If the smoke -house can be lopt petfertly
secure against the entrance of insects, and is
ri irk an I cool, the bacon may be left in it till
wanted fur use ; but there are few houses of this
deecription, and, on the approach of warm
weather. must he taken down and packed away
secure till required for the table.. Salt. clean
hickory-ashes. or oats, will secure it from insects
or dripping, if placed in a dry nr cool position.
It is sometimes kept by whits-washing the
surfaces, by dipping the hams in strong lie,
which converts the surface into a kind of snap,
and sometimes.by sewing them up clrisely in
cotton. Probably the best made. however, in
all respects, is to park them down in powdered
charcoal. which will ant only effectually exeluile
all insects whatever, hut, by keeping the meal
dry. and correcting any tendency to unpleasant
flavor, keep the meat in good order fur any
length of time.--Senesee Farmer.
[From the Pictou (N. S.) Former.]
The estrus communie. nr horse-bee. as it it
commonly- called, is seen depositing its little
yellow eggs on the lees of horses, during the
rummer and autumn : these are taken 4:44 the
horse. biting at flies, or scratching himself. and
swallowed. In the stomach of the horse they
are hitched. and this is the place nature has
:seined Cir their first transformation. They are
1,3 N• in the state of maggots ; and in the spring
of the year, they are auras found,in greal
numbers 6adliering to the lower part of 'tie
stomach. imo the adjoining intestine. After a
time, they quit the body with the feces,
soon again assume the form of the fly.' One of
the mittee bps investigated this subject with'
some pains, and, aftei having examined the
stomach of several horses supposed to have died
rif hots hr has come to the convictiott t h at these
animals scarcely ever rause death in the horse.
In animals that have been killed by violence
they :we found in equal, numbers as in those
supposed to have died of hole. In fact, he be
lieves horse's stomach, that has been expos
to the fly, will be withnin them in the spring
seas.m. fir has almost milforinly found the
stomach uninjured. though swarms of the
animals were adhering; and it is impossible
that they ens prove fatal rat any other way than
hv gnawmg soul inflaming the coats of this
orzait. The reason that death is so often
:iserilied to die presence and operating of these
is to he found in the general ignorance
of the symptoms of ether diseases ; the horse
dies, the stomach is opened, the buts are found,
and, therefore. they are the cause of his death.
As knell might it he said that a bird, found
sitting on a lahten tree, hail been the cause of
its overthrow. In ninety-nine eases out of a
hundred. they will be found entirely innocent,
and some other iinportant organ will. if rare
fully examined, present appearasces sufficient to
aecount for the fatal event. If it he admitted that
htlitt can cause the disonler, unfortunately we
possess- no means of ascertaining their preeenee,
no sympl to he depended on,- except the ac
cidcmal Ono of their hettig voided ; and we know
of no remedies that can claim the least confidence
to effect their dialudgernent.
All kinds of barnitio and count ive medicines
have been poured downdlie unfortunate animal's
throat, with no other effect than that of increas
ing the original diseases. or producing one where
none kpreviously existed, without disturbing the
worms in the least. Otte of the committee has
experimented on them after the death of the
horse, by placing them in a cup with spirits of
turpentine, fluting lye, and various powerful
medicine,. without producing any effect fur
many hours This being the case, it is impos
sible In apply any of them for a suffiient space
of time to destr y the hots, leaving out of the
question the injury done to the tender coats of
the horse's stomach by substances so perni
If there are grounds to suppose that worms
are really the mischief, the most eligible course
is to improve the horse's condition of diet, mo
derate excerise, and grooming, with occasional
dose of some gentle alterative medicine.

yearly inure and more to his capital. The care
ful, attentive farm er, is not so insignificant after
all, J. E. ROLFE.
DEAD ANDIALS.—By covering a dead animal
with five tunes its hulk of earth, that quantity
might he co•iverted into so much good manure,
as the gaecous climations thrown off in the pro
cess of decomposition would be absorbed by, and
become assimilated with, the superincumbent
earth. How much more preferable such a dis
position of a dead cow or horse would be, to
leaving its carcass exposed on the surface, to
fill the air with noisome vapors, we leave the
farmer to determine.
So soon as the flesh may be decomposed, the
soil should he [moved from the buttes of the
animal, turned over, and mixed, say with half
a bushel of plaster, to fix the ammonia, when it
will he fit to use. The bones then should be
broken fine, and have half their weight of
sulphuric arid added tic them, and covered up
to digest. which they Would do in a few weeks.
When digested, they should be mixed with
mould and spread on the sail. The hones of
a cow or horse. thus treated, would efficiently
manure a quarter of an acre of ground for
turnips, and ensure a good crop, or might be
applied with similar good effects, to an •equal
quantity of land in corn, rye, barley, wheat. or
oats, so that one dead In rse or cow could be
made to manure half an acre of ground.
Aritoersm.—Nothing that ix broken bears
any value excep the heart, which becomes the
more valuable the more it is broken.

The value of three things are justly appre
ciated by three classes of persons ; the value
of youth by the old. the value of health by
the diseased, the value of riches by the needy.
