I enquir. ed ; "for, if so, I will have nothing to do with it. I've had enough of that Bort of work." "No, no," said he, "It's nothing of the kind. It's only a matter of enriosity, which would ill call or 00 .Ami far tha result of vour examination in a j few day's time." Having received this as i surance I undertook the investigation. "When he was gone and I had leisure, I put the hairs under the microscope, and soon discovered that they were taken from the back of a Norway tat. Two or three days afterwards, as I was sitting in my consulting rcom, an old far mer looking man wa ushered in. ' "Well," said he, "has thee looked at them hairs!"' Yes," I answered, "and I find that they are from the back of a Norway rat " "Well." exclaimed he, "so they are. Thou has forgotten me; but I have not forgotten thee. Does thee recollect tne trial for mur- jer al l assizes! I said I would prove thee ; and so I haveTor them hairs came from the back of a rat's skin my eon sent me Lorn NoTWay." So the old gentleman .was quite satisfied with the proof to which he had put me, and I, as you may suppose, was well pleased that ray skill and sagacity had stood such a queer proof as this, and more convinced me than ever of the value of the microcope." Here the doctor ended his story, which 1 have given as nearly as possible in his own word, and onon which I believe that a thorough dependence may be placed. Useful Receipts. Frozen Custard. Slice a Vanilla bean and boil it slowly in half a pint of milk, 'till !l ih Breii!ith is extracted and tbe milk ! highly flavored with the Vanilla, then strain ii and set it a.ide.

He is nursed in the strong embrace of prolific, many ha Jed Nature. Our mother Nature keeps the wis est school, Great Nature rude, yet gentle ; stern, yet kindly ; terrible, yet loving ; fru gal, yet beautiful. We almost believe that no men can be God's great men, ojless nurtured in the strong embrace of our real mother on the bosom of the earth. All men should some time in their lives, live in the midst of nature and till tbe soil. He whb has been born and reared and who lives in a cily, debarred the privilege of communing with Nature, is most unfort?- i.ate. He can never be a whole man. He lacks the stern poetic teachings of this ,jreat school. Nothing can compensate lor it. "An undevout astronomer is mad I . ex claimed a wise man. An undevout ; far mer is a monster! we exclaim. What lean the husbandman receive his food t irect from Heaven its rains, and dews, and suushine; it smiles over him in the blue and spangled vault, sun and moon and stars lit; all around him in the wavy gras and grain, the many tinted flowers ; in the voic es of the wind and the bending trees ; un derneath him, in profile, fresh turned toil and still be a monster, out of tune wit! out er and inner Nature! Who lives s far from temptation ? Who lives so nigh his Creator, enwrapped all about it witli his arras fed from his dazzling muni icent hand. He sleeps between the leavss of God's picture book the Universe. "He loved husbandry," is the encoiium that inspiration pays to one of the best Kingf of Israel, and who had one of the longest and most prosperous reigns. "Uz- zah the King," says the sacred writer, "dig ged many well,4br he had much cattle j hus bandmen also, and vine-dressers in Democracy and the Enion. As much as the Democratic party desire to see an end put to this horrible and un natural war, and peace again restored to the country, it would not have our Govern ment humble itself before an aimed rebel lion, or accede to terms that would be dis honorable, or in contravention to the Coii stiiution upon which our institutions are founded, merely for the sake of peace. W e waul no peace short of a restoration of the Union. Our flag mast again float over every inch of our former territory, and be honored and respected as in days past, be fore the war can end. Let the war Je pushed vigorously forward to attain that end, and when that is accomplished, and the friendship of the Union men of the South regained and their confidence in the Government reassured, the. war ought to terminate and life and rroperty be spared. Our Government should leave nothing un done to reassure the Union men ol the South that their rights under the Constitu tion will not be trampled upon, Tor to them it must look for aid in re-establishing the Union and maintaining and administering the laws when the war ends. We see how well this is working iu Tennessee under Hon. Andrew Johnson, and the tame good results are manifesting themselves every day, under the lead of Southren Union men in other parts of the rebel States. Nobly have the Union men of the South stood side by side with the Democracy of the North and batiled all through these trying times for the Union, the whole Union and dAscin' thk Pokkr."

What visions of the spiritual world, opening bfure the dyi.ig eyes of ihe solder ; what convictions that for them the honors and the strifes of earth were over, and that when next their souls 6hou!d awake to life it would be in a more august assembly, where paia and sorrow, the raptors of the strife" and it equally inevitable agony, should be forgotten, as a dream that is fled.

Accordingly I ubmi'ted the bair to the microscope, when I discovered they were from a human eye trow and bruised I made a note to this .effect, and folded it with tbe hairs in an en velope, ready for the person who had sent them. In a few days a stranger called and inquired whether I bad made ihe investiga tion. "Oh, ye," I said, "there they are, and yon will find them and their descrip tion in tQis envelope," banding it to him zl the fame time. He expressed himself as being much obliged, and offered me a fee, which, however, I declined, telling him thai I could not think of taking anything for bo small a matter. -li turned out. however, of more conse quence than I bad imagined, for within a week I was served wilh a subpoena, to at tend as a witness on a It ial for murder.

The case was this- A roan had been kilted by a tlow on the eyebrow, and the hairs seut to tne for examination bad been taken from a hammer in the possession of the suspected mur&exer. I was pot into the witness box and wy testimony, 'that the hairs were from the human eyebrow and had been ... bruwed," was just the link in the chain of evidence which sufficed to convict the pris oner. The jury, however, was not easily saiisei thai ray statement was worth any thiug ; and it required the solemn assarance of the judge that such a conclusion was in the reach of science to coaviuca them that I hey mijrht act opoa it.
