God might hate ;node the earth bring forth
Enough for great and iumall ;

Without a flower at all.
We tnigtt have had enough, enough
For every want of ount.
For luxury, medicine and toil.

the on within the mountain mine
Re•titire thnone to grow ; •
Nor does it need the lotus flower
make the river flow.
And clouds might give abundant min,
The nightly dews might fait,
And the herb, that keepeth ilk in man,
Might yet hare drunk them all.
Thin' wherefore, wherefore were-they made,
And dyed with rainbow light,
All fashioned with supremest grace,
Up-springing day and night- 7 -
Springing in valleys green and low,
And on the mountain 11gb,
And* the silent wilderneirs,
Where no man paseeiti by
Our outward life 'reqoires them not;
Then wherefore had they birth',
To minister delight to man,
To beautify the earth—
To tiemfort man, to whisper hope,
Whene'er his bath is dim ;
For wham eareth for the dowers,
Will much more rate for him.
SALTING lloasss.—A curious fact is re
lated in Parker's Treatise• on Sell :--“A
person who kest sixteen farming binses,
niadi the following experiment with seven
of them which had been accustomed to eat
sali•with their food. Lumps of rock salt
were laid in their mangers, and those
lumpa, previously weighed, were examin
ed weekly to ascertain what quantity had
been consumed, and it was repeatedly
found that whenever these horses were fed
do hay and corn, they consumed only a
bout two and a half or three ounces per
day, that when they were fed with new
hay, they took six ounces per day." This
should convince us of the expediency of
permitting our cattle the free use of salt at
all times; and it calm( t be given in so con
venient a form as in rock salt, it being
Much more palatable than the same article
in a refined maw, and by far cheaper. A
good lump should always be kept in a box
by the aide of the animal, without fear that
it will ever be taken in excess.
PasszavE GREEN PEss.—The Peas
should be fre;h shelled ; put them into
Omni bottles, which should be carefully
washed. Put the bottles into a kettlor to
prevent their coming in contact fill up the
kettle with cold water, and heat it; when
the-water begins to boil take oft the kettle
directly ; leave the bottles in the water un
til it is quite cold for fear they should break
by taking them out whilst the water is hot;
stop down the bottles and keep them in a
dry and cold place, not exposed to the in
fluence of the sun.
-.W00t,.--The 'history of the growth of
Wool is veil , curious. Fifty years ago
not a pound of fine Wool was raised in
the U. States, in Great Britain, or any
other country except Spain. In the latter
countrythe docks were owned exclusively
by,the.twiltilityor the crown. In 1794 a
train dock was sent to the Elector of Sax
onyoui a present front the King of Spain,
whence the entire product of the Saxon
Wool, now of such immense value. Be
foie the breaking out of the last war be
tween this country and Great Britain, Col.
Humphreys succeeded in obtaining a few
merino sheep brought out of Spain; then
their exportation was prohibited under pen. '
altj of being sent to the galleys for life.
In 1809, during the invasion of Spain
by the French, some of the invaluable
Crown - docks were sold to labia money.
Our consul at Lisbon, Mr. Jarvis, purchas
ed" 1400 head and sent them to this coun
try. Mr. Livingston obtained a few sheep
of the Spanish breed as a present in 1792.
A portion of the pure .unmixed merino
blood from these docks is to be found in
Vermont at this time. Such was the ori
gin ,olf the immense flocks of fine wooled
sheep in the U. States and Great Britain.
'Maim; Brorran.—Mr. Merrifield, of
Iderlind, who 'received a premium for

ral Society, in 1842, adepts the following
mode for making butter winter the

Mr. he. F. Roes
Dear Sir—About three weeks ago my wife
caught a severe cold, which troubled her a good
deal and gave her great uneasiness: she prepared
a great many articles which were recommended
to her by her friends, but without receiving the
benefit from any of them ; her sough was getting
worse every dry ; bet appetite was fast failing.
and to sleep was impossitee. the pates in her
breast and side became so severe that Ifierishe
had to go to bed, and my friends advised me to
CAB in a Physician. I thought 1 would call in
the store where you were engaged and see if I
could not get something that would r e li e v e b ier ,
when you gave me a bottle of your Expectorant.
assuring me tkat it would cure her, she commen
ced taking it that night, not, however, without
great opposition on the part of some of her
friends, who said It wax only some "Quack
Medicine," and would do her more harm
than good. --But 1 determined to take your advice,
and now let all know tire Res u lt 1 From Inking the
first none she felt easier. though unable to sleep
on account of the quantity of phlegm that loosen.
ed and would almost choke her, but which she
could spit up with but little difficulty; the follow
ing day she continued it aeconling to the dim
none, and that time, for the first time for nearly
twe weeks, she enjoyed a good night's rest and by
the time she had riniehed the first bottle, she was
entirely cured. Make what use of this you think
proffer, for such an invaluable medicine should be

Dear Sir,—At your request I cheerful
ly give you an account of the wonderful
cure effected upon me by Dr: Wien's In
dian Vegetable Panacea. At the age of
fourteen years I had upon my right knee
a White Swelling, which stiffened the
joint, and caused some seventy or more
pieces of the hone to conic aivitY . in' the
sores, and which was temporarily relieved
by the usual remedies, but not entirely col
red. 'AI times sores - Would again break
out, and become so distressing and painful
that I could get no rest night nor day. In
this way it continued till last spring, when,
having witnessed the.extraordinary e ff ects
of your Panacea, as an alterative, upon a
a daughter of mint who was using it for a
chronic disease, I concluded to make a tri
al of it in my own case; the result has
been an chore cure. lam now sixty-sev
