But rather mourn our own dark lot—

Whose trumpet tones with fear have sha;
Old despots onlyteir erunibllng thrones—

And on our country's fate loth pondor
With sleoploss oyo and placid brow.

TEE GREAT BELL 01! MUSCOW
Close to the tower of Ivan Velihi,
(John the Great) and reared on - a mils
sivo pedestal ofgranito, stands the mighty
boll, most justly named the Monarch,
(Czar Kolokot,) forino other in the world
may dispute its sovereignty. It'was cast
by the command of the Empress Ann, in
1730 y and boars her figure in flowing
robes upon its surface beneath which is u
deep border of flowers. It is said that
the tower in which it originally hung was
burnt in 1787, and its fall buried the
enormous mass deep in the earth, and
broke a huge fragiitent' , from it. There it
lay for many years, visited in its subter
raneous abode by the enterprising
traveller only, and carefully guarded, by
a Ituslian sentluol. In the spring of 1837,
exactly a century after it fell, the Empe
ror Nicholas caused it to be removed,
and rightly deeming it to be one of the
greatest wonders of this wondrous city,
placed it upon its present pedestal, with',
the broken fragment beside it. , The
fracture took place just above the border
ing of flowers that runs round the bell,
and this Piece is about six feet high and
three feet wide. The height of the whole
boll is twenty-one feet three inches, and
twenty-two feet five inches in diameter;
and it is in no part less than three inches
in thickness. Seen from oven a short
distarre, surrounded,as it is on nil sides
by objects on such an immense scale, with
the lofty Ivan yeliki towcri4 immedi•
ately behind it, the impression of its meg.
nand° is by no means striking ; it is only
when the spectator comes near to it, and
staOs beside the broken fragment of this
paella mountain, or -descends the stairs
that lend beneath it and looks up into its
capacious cavern, that be becomes sonsi•
1)10 of its enormous bulk. This giant
communicator of sound has been -cOns?-
crated as a chapel, and!) to entrance to it
is by an iron gate, and down a
that descend into the cavity formed by
(119 wall and the excavation under it.
Tho "Czar Koldkoris highly venera
ted, for the religious feelings of the peo
ple wore called into action when. it was
cast, and every one who had a fraction of
the precious metals threw into the melt
ing mass sorhe offering of either silver or
gold ; the decorative parts of it are in low
relief and badly execute]. It weighs be
tween three and four hundred thousand
pounds. The value of this mass of metal,
from the present price of copper, must
be upwards of two millions of dollars..,
. Cheap Smoke,liouse. Ie
A. farmer in Western New York gives
the following as his plan for a good and
cheap smoke house: No 'farmer should
be without a good 'v smoke-house, and
such a one as will be fire-proof and tol
erably secure from thieves. Fifty hams
can be smoked at one time in a smoke
house seven by eight feet square. Mine
is six by seven, and is largo enough for
most farmers. I first dug all the ground
out below where the frost would reach,
and filled it up to the surface with small
stone. On this I laid my brick floor, in
limo mortar. The walls are brick, eight
inches thick, and seven feet Idyl,, with a
door on one side two feet wide. Tho
door should be made of Weed ti O
lined with . sheet iron. For the top I pat
on joists, two by four, set up edgewise,
and eight and a half ? inches from centre
to centre, covered with brick, and put on
a heavy coat of mortar. I built a small
chimney on the top in the centre, arch
mg it over and covering it with with A
single roof in the usual way. An arch
should be built on the outside, with a
small iron door to shut it up; similar . to
a Stove door, with a hole from the arch
through the wall of the smoke-house,
and an iron grate over it. The arch is
more convenient and better to put the
fire in than to build a fire inside the
smoke-house, and the chimney causes a
draft through into the smoke-house.
Good corhcobs 'or hickory wood are the
best materials ,to make a smoke for
hams. The cost of such a smoke-house
as I described is about $2O.

Among the astounding discoveries of
science, is that of tho ithmenso periods

clean, water-tight cask and put into it
half a bushel of lime. Slack it by pour
ing water over it boiling hot, and in suf
ficient quantity to cover it fivo inches
deep-, and stir it briskly till thoroughly
slackened. When the limo has been\
slackened, dissolve it in water, and add
two pounds of sulphate of zinc and ono
of common salt. Theio will cause the
wash to harden and prevent its cracking
which gives an unseemly appearance to
the work. A beautiful cream color may
be given to the wash by .adding three
pounds of yellow ochre; or a good pearl
9r lead color by the addition of a lump of
iron black. For fawn .color add four
pounds i umber, one pound of Indian red,
and one pound of common lamp black.
For steno color add two pounds raw um

fences, it is rendered more durable by

but it is found in by far the majority of
cases that the husband is sornelinw or

felicity is seldom marred by the %yornan ;
it is be empire, and she is no more like

to seek to render it as agreeable as possi

duties properly observed—to have a

A SELL OF BAIL-ROOM LOAFIIIIB.—The

the following : "Yesterday evening a wag
stepped into a saloon (we don't locate it),
and after taking a view at the knot of sit
ters gathered around the stoye,,without
speaking to any of them, began - to count
heads audibly, pointing first to himself
and then to each expectant bummer, He
counted one, two, three,, four, five, 'Bar
tender.' Instantly ten bloodshot oyes
gleamed with delight of expectancy'; five
necks straightened; five pairs of feet
were drawn together for a rise, five
mouths were cleared of tobacco ; five
coat.sleavcs drawn across five pairs of
parched, tobacco-stained lips, Involunta
rily smacking with sweeyttiticipations.
Six'glasses of lager were ranged in a row
on the bar, when _ the joker, without
deigning a glance at the thirsty objects of
his - enttmenition, proceeded to stow away
the six glasses of 'hop water' in short or
