ALVILIV U TER AL. TIM ITSE OF FLOWERS God might hate ;node the earth bring forth Enough for great and iumall ; tbs. bat ime and the cedar tore, Without a flower at all. We tnigtt have had enough, enough For every want of ount. For luxury, medicine and toil. • " 'And ye. tont had no flowers. 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,..bot 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 butler from the N. York State Agricultu ral Society, in 1842, adepts the following mode for making butter winter the milk stand! in the cellar twelve hours thifit scalded over a slow fire to near boil ing heat; the thins removed to the cellar ; Ike cream only churned, which seldom re oulimsmore than five minutes to produce butter.
