manner he spoke on questions concerning

The proceedings ofthe Republican Con
vention, under tho false head of " Union
Convention," appear in another column
to-day. This affair was gotten up by a
few hungry Republicans and offieo seekers,
as iho proceedings show from beginning
to end, and it will bo looked upon by the

This Republican Convention nominated
William A, Mason, formerly a Democrat
and William Colloy for Associate Judges;
John M. Heacock for Treasurer; Antho

Yes, said I, will,' I did do it and had an

wo took a kinder ttutlo-doving after each

new cider when we were away from each
other. 'Twas at tho closo of a glorious
summer day tho sun was setting behind
a distant hogpen the chickens were going
to roost ; tho bullfrogs were commencing
to sing their evening songs j the pollywogs
in their native mudpuddles were preparing
tor tho shades of night, and Sal and my
self sat upon an antiquated backlogdistcn

toads, roosters and grunting pigs, and now
and then tho mellow music of a distant
jackass was wafted to our cars by the gen

stalks, and camo ladon with the delicious
odcr of hen roosts and pig styes : the last
lingering rays of tho sotting sun glancing
from the brass buttons of a solitary horse
man shown through a knot hole in the
hog- pen, full in Sal's face, dying hor hair
with an orange peel hue, and showing off
my tliread-baro coat to bad advantage ;
one of my arms was around Sal's waist,
hand on the small of her back. Sho was
toying with my auburn locks of jet black
hue ; sho was almost gone and I was ditto.
She looked like a grass hopper dying with
the bickups, and I felt like a mud turtle
choked with a cod fub, ball.

notes of a dying swan, 'will you havo mo V
She turned hor eyes heavenward, clasped
me by tho hand, had an attack of the

Tho drill is very so -

am constantly allowed an attendant with
a fan and a pitcher of ice water.
I am constantly reminded that ono of
the first requirements of a Soldier is to
throw out his chest and draw in his stom
ach. Having been burned out several
times whilo occupying rooms in an attic, I
have had considerable practice in threicing
out my chest, but by what system of prac
tico could I ever hope to draw in my stom
ach 1 I can't " dress .up" it's no use

(Thcro is no room for argument in regard
to my sentiments everybody can sco at a
glance just where I stand.) Ono evening
wo had a new drill sergeant who was near
sighted. Itunning his oyo down tho lino,
ho exclaimed sharply :
" What is that man doing in tho ranks
with a bass drum I"
He pointed at me, but I hadn't any
drum it was the surplus stomach that I
couldn't draw in. ,
I am the but of numberless jokes as you
may well suppose. They havo got a story
in the guards that when I first heard tho
command "Order arms 1" I dropped my
musket, and, taking up my note book, be
gan to draw an order on the Governor for
what arms I wanted. They say I ordered ! A hadful of salt thrown in will maka

od that has proved to bo tho most success

1. In tho first placo you ask in regard
to tho churning : wo uso dog power, hav-

55 degrees Fab, which givos tho butter a
good solid cocsistoney.
2. When tho butter comes, it is remov
ed and washed with cold ico water until
the butormilk is all removed.
3. It is then salted, about ono ounce of
salt to a pound of butter, worked in thor
oughly, and set in a cool placo for twenty
four hours, when it ia worked, jusl sufficient
to remove all the buttermilk.
1. It is then packed in tho firkin, and
covered tight so as to exclude the air.
5. When tho firkin is filled, then put a
cloth over tho butter, put on a good cover
ing of salt, and then pour on water, which
makes a brine. Wo keep it thus covered,
until it goes to market, it being tho only
way we could ever keep a dairy perfectly
sweet through the season.

Sowi.no Grass Sued Tiiiokly. An
aged farmer of Pennsylvania, iu a letter
to tho American Agriculturist, says :
"After nearly fifty years of experienco
and observation, among my neighbors and
elsewhere, I am convinced that too littlo
grass seed is sown. Here I sco a field
with only half plants cnongh growing;
would not a double quantity of seed havo
filled up tho gaps 7 The cost of the seed
was GO cents per aero. Another 00 cents
worth of seed would have made this year's
mowing and pastnrago worth 612 an acre,
while it is now only wotth SO, 1 never
saw grass too thick ; but I havo seen it
too thin on hundreds of fields. Formerly
I sowed 4 quarts of clover seed and 8 q!s
of timothy seod to the acre; now 1 neve
sow less than 8 or 10 quarts ofclover, nrt1
