lengths as • thick as, your finger, in any
shape Tom please; soak in some cream,
ntitr.aeg, sugar, cinnamon and one egg,
Viten well soaked fry brown and serve
'with butter, wine and sugar sauce.
Bice Paiteakee.—Boil half pound of
rice to a
,jelly; when cold mix it with a
pint of cream, four eggs, a little salt, and
nutmeg; stir in eight ounces of butter
just warmed, and add as much ,flour• as
will makt the batter thick enough; fry in
as little lard as possible. • ,
A Good Substitute for Cream to\ put in
Coffee.—Boila pint of milk and let it cool;
beat the yolks of, three e,ags, and 'stir in;
it will make the coffee much richer.
Pudding Sauce.—Take one cup of bat
ter and cup of white sugar;beat them
well together, flavor with lenion •extract;
just before serving yOur pudding set the
sauce on the stove and stir ,until it be
comes hot—it will raise up very light.
Apple Oustard;—•Take one dozen sour
apples, peel and core them, place them
over the fire to cook in a teacup of water
until they begin to be tender, then put.
them in spudding dish, cover them with
sugar, beat up ten, eggs with three pints of
milk and pour over them; bake about
three-quarters of an hour.
-To KeeriGoar of Bed Bligahe the
whites of four eggs and ten cents worth of
quicksilver; put them into a howl and
beat to a perfect froth. Take a feather
and dip into this preparation, and apply
to every part of your bedstead where
-bugs conceal themselves; do this once a
year, and you wit never see a bedbug in
your house. f
How to Preserve Eggs.—An easy way
to preserve eggs is to rub the outside of
thesliell, as Soon as it is gathered from
thenest, with a little butter or any other
grease that is.not fetid. By filling up the
res of the shell the evaporation of the
liquid part of the eggs is prevented, and
, by this means excludes the external air.
The' milkiness which most people are
fond'Of in • new laid eggs, will be pre-
'served for months, as, perfect as when
• taken from the nest. • r
Another Way to Preserve Eggs from
Nay to May Again—Take a piece of
mislacked lime as large as, a pint bowl,
slack It -by degrees; when well slacked
put ten quarts of water to it, and add salt
till the eggs rise; then put them in with
care that none get cracked, and lay a
cloth on the eggs, that will keep them
wet on the top.
Soft. Wafers.—One cup of yeast, one
quart of milk, two pounds of flour, one
pound of butter, ten eggs, one-half to
remain until risen.
'Marlborough Pudding.—Take twelve
spoonfuls of stewed apples, twelve of
wine, twelve of sugar, twelve of melted
butter, and twelve of beatenieggs, a little
• cream; spice to your taste; Iyin a paste
in . a deep dish. Bake oriel hour and a
quarter. • -

EFFECTS OF 11FATING THE :El
Most gardeners in New England are in
thehabit of preparing the hills for.cu
cumbers, squashes and melons by burn
ing upon them heaps of old pea-brush,
shavings, weeds and chip-dirt. If, you
were to inquire the cause of this practice,
you would probably be told that it was
to accomplish two very dissimilar pur l
poses—the destruction of the numerous
insects and seeds which lay beneath the
burning heap, and the imparting to the
soil a considerable degree of warmth.
Certainly both of these objects are a -
complished, but we suggest that the great
benefit obtained by this procedure •is the
softening of the 13 ilex contained in the soil,
whereby it is rendered soluble.
Every farmer, who has put in a crop
on land that has been recently cleared
and burned, as is the practice in all tim
bered countries, knows the wonderful
fertility of lands that have been so pre-,
pared, and has pleasant recollections of
the first crops that wereproduced after
the ax and torch had dont their work of
devastation. Many attribute this marvel
ions fertility, which is exhibited for some
years, to the presence of 'the ashes that
have been produced; but without wishing,
in any manner, to detract from the value
of the wood ashes, we believe the action
of the fire on the soil (producing soluble
silica) was the great cause of these, heavy
crops. This practice would be especially
beneficial to lands that are to be sown to
any kind of grain, but more particularly
to wheat. For the perfection of either
the straw or kernel of this plant soluble
silica is absolutely necessary.—Prairie
Professor LW, of the Cornell Univer
sity, in a treatise on "garget" and
its cause, says: Diseases of -the teats
will sometimes induce garget, as when
they have been injured by the reek- -
less use of teat-tubes, or if the milk is
only partly drawn off in consequence of
open sores, resulting from foot and month
disease, cow-pox or warty growths.
But the retention of milk in the udder is
not the only evil attendant on bad milk
ing. Some milkers seize'the root of the
I teat between the thumb and fore•finger,
and then drag it until it slips out of their
grasp. In this way the teat and udder
are subjected to severe traction for an in
definite number of times, and in rude
hands is often severely injured. The
proper mode of milking is to take the
teat in the entire hand, and after pressing
it upward, that it may be well filled from
the - capacious milk reservoir above; to
coMpress it first at the base between the
thumb and fore-finger, then, successively
by each` of the threer succeeding fingers
until completely emptied. The teat is at
the same time gently drawn upon. but
any severe traction is- altogether unne
cessary and highly injurious. These re
marks on the mode of milking, and those
of milking .clean, are of more moment
than many may at first suppose, and in
some localities, more -cows are ruined
from faults of this kind than from all
other causes which act specially on the
CBRAP WASH. FOR BUILDINGS.
Take a dean, water-tight cask and put
into its half a bushel of lime. Slack it by
pouring water over it boiling hot, and in
sufficient quantity to cover it five inches
deep, and stir it briskly
. until thorongly
slackened. When this lime has been
slackened, dissolve it in water, and add
two pounds of sulphate of zinc and one
of common salt. These will cause the
wash to harden and prevent its wicking,
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
or lead color by the addition of a lump of
iron black. For , fawn color add four
pounds of umber, one pound of Indian
red and one of common lampblack., For
stone color add two pounds lamp black.

A writer on cookery gives the following ,
recipe for preparing a &Hamm seasoning:
Place in a paper bag. one•quarter of, an
ounce of thyme, one-quarter of an ounce
of bay leaf, one-eighth ounce of marjoram,
and one-eighth ounce of rosemary; put the
bag into a moderately-' heated oven, till
the herbs are dry; then mix them in a
Mortar with a half an ounce of nutmegs,
half an ounce of cloves, a quarter of an
ounce of pepper, one-eighth of an ounce
of cayenne Tepper, pound the whole and
press through a hair seive. Keep this
mixture in a dry, well-corked bottle.
These spices are to be , need either alone
or with salt added; the proportion for
mixing:with salt 's one ounce of the mix
ture to four ounces of fine salt. One
ounce of the spiced salt is sufficient to
season three pounds of forcemeat.

ECONOMY BUTTER CO.
ask the attention of all interested In the redric
tion of the extravagant cost of Butter, to th'elr
practical and economical system of mating pare
Prime Butter by the aid of the
EXTRACT OF BUTTER PLANT.
A brief allusion to, the origin of thisdnirsirtant
discovery may not prove uninteresting. Among
the auttientfcated records of the 'renowned Cap
tain Cook's voyage around the world, is found
the statement, that while sojourning fora Short
- time on the Brazilian Coast of South ApieriCa. he
Observed the natives using, in the preparation of
their feed, a peculiar oil. which. upon examina
tion. he found to possess tbe - appearnce, taste
and 'leveret' Butter; upon farther inottiry, how
ever, he ascertained that Shwas simi ly a sub.,
stance that the natives distilled incrudesnd
' imperfect manner, from a rich andl luxuriant
plant that grew spontaneously said ab udantly in
ghat warm tropical country. A feud iea rs ago,
an eminent French chemist, while/ on a profes
sional visit to the tropics, made numerods-exper
iments wltn this remarkable production oftna
ture, and succeeded in extracting a cncentrated
essence of the plant. The formula f r its p 'pa
ration, and the Sole Right for its sale in till
country are the exclasive property o this or
party, by whom It was purchased from the o la
nil discoverer. We claim for' this retiaark bit
yet simple and perfectly harmless preparatio
115.—That by its use a net gain of from 50 to 011
per cent. is made in the manufacture of B u t ter.
9d.—That Butter, which from age or wba ' er
cause, may be strong ,] rancid, streaked or
coarse-grained , and comparatively Poetess for
general use, by the aid of this Extract, is re
stored to its original freshness and sweet s ss,
fine-grain, and even color.
3d.—By the use of this Extract; one pound of
delicious, fresh Butter is actually made from
one pint of milk. .
4th.—That a pure and excellent table Butter can
be made, at a cost of from 15 to 20 ,43 nts per
pound. The chief expense wherein being But
ter, which is the essenUal base.
6th.-That Butter manufactured - bv the aid of
this Extract is equaltin every respect to the best
Butter made by the ordinary method.
Oth.— The Extract after thorough. analysts, by
able chemists. Is pronounced perfectly free from
any deleterious substance, the Ingredients be
ing purely of a vegetable nature.
Bth. In proof of ;he foregoing assertions, the
factory of this company •Is mating one ton ef
. Batter per day, which meets with ready sale
in the New York Mrrket. and Ls consumed from
the tables of the fret Hotels, Restaurants and
Private families in this city and elsewhere.
A sample package of the Extract (sufficient to
make ;so lbs. of Butter) -with full directions for
use, will be sent to any address on receipt of $l.
