Bread made of wheat flour, when taken
out of the oven, is unprepared for the sto
mach. It should go through a change, or
ripen before it is eaten. Young persons,
or persons enjoying vigorous health, may
e.tt bread immediately after being haken,
without any sensible injury trout it; but
a g ed or weakly persons connotand none
eats cat Without doing harm to to this diges r , I
tivC orgrns. Bread, after being baked, goes
through a change similar to the eltriage in
newly brewed beer,.or newly churned bin
ter-milk, neither being healthy until after
the change.' .During the change in bread,
it contains a large portion of carbon, or un
healthy gas; and imbibes a large portion
oxygen or healthy gas. Bread has, accord
ing to the computations of physicians, ore
fifth more nutriment in it when ripe, than ,
when just out of the oven.
It not only has Arturo nutriment, but im
parts a greater degree of cheerfulness.--
Ile that eats old ripe bread, will have much
g reat e r flow of animal spirit's, than he
would were he to eat unripe bread. Bread,
as before observed, discharges carbon and
imbibes oxygen. One thing in 'connexion
with :this thought shotild be particularly
noticed by housewives. It is this, to let
the bread ripen where it can inhale the ox'-
yen in a pure state. Bread Will alvSays
taste of the air Math - surrounds it while
ripening ; hence it shindil ripen where the
air is Pure. It should never ripen in a
cellar, nor in a close cupboard, nor , in' a
bed-Morn. The noxious vapors RI a cel
lar or cupboard never shoeld enter into and
form a part of the bread we eat. Bread
should:be light, well baked, and properly
ripened before it should be eaten. Bread
that is several days old, may be renewed
so as to have all the frealtheas and light -L

'CHARCOAL FOINPEACII TMICE.B.-..Mr. M.
Cleveland, of Hartfonl, states in the Amer
ican Agriculturii4, that having a favorite
young Peach tree, the leaves of which
were turning yellow, he removed the turf
and soil near the roots, in a circle of about
two feet in • diameter around the tree, and
filled the space, to a level with the sur
roundintsoil, with finepieces and dust of
charcoal, which remained in the bottom of
a boa. Th , •o result was surprising. 'l'he
tree pt on fine healthy leaVes instead of
the yellow *nee, and all other signs of
sickness departed in 'a wonderfully short .
apart of time. The tree again commenced
growing,- and reatained perfectly !healthy
until some years after, when it was .de•
airoyed by die weight idiot crop of fruit
assisted by a swat wind. !Cis worthy
of note that this fruit. both iu quality and
site, was is much improved as the appear

parts, of SO pages each, imperial Syo, all of which
are now stereotyped. It will be beautifully illus

This work is based upon the commentaries of
Henry and Scott, and more than one hundred oth

these eminent divines being quoted, constituting
a digest of the most valuable •melts at which the
learned men of allagechave arrived, in their crit

been had to the wants ot Sunday School teacher*

MOST WONDERFUL CURE.

the benefit experienced by the use of Thomson's
Compound Syrup of Tar, and that others who,
like me, have languished through years of affliction
and suffering, without being able to find a remedy

make the following statement.
About four years since, alter being affected with
a violent cold, it left upon me a troublesome and
severe cough. Whilst the cough continued, w hich
was with scarcely an intermission during this
long period, language fails to tell y% hat 1 have suf-

Symptom of a diseased Liver.—Pain in the right

sore; sometimes the pain is in the left aisle; the
patient is rarely able to lie on the left side ; some
times the pain is felt under the' shoulder-blade, it
frequently extends to the top of the shoulder, and
is sometimes mistaken for a rheumatism in the
right arm.. The stomach is affected with loss of
appetite and sickness; the bowels, in general, are
costive, sometimes alternating with lax, the head
is troubled with pain accompanied with a dull
heavy sensation in the back part. There is gen
erally a considerable loss of memory, accompan
ied with a peinfill sensation of having left undone
something which ought to have been done. A
slight dry cough is sometimes an attendant. The
patient complaing of weariness and debility; he is
easily startled, his feet are cold or burning, and he
