RAVING GRAIN IN DAMP WEATHER
A field of white oats near Plymouth was
cut- wet, and, the weather continuing the
flame, was at last stacked in layers, with
dry' straw between. Where no dry straw
is to be had, it may be dried in a sheaf;
01,e bye a simple kiln, or without risk of
firo, by lime, as Inflows : If the rick he
made hollow, with the grain turned in-
Wsrdo a sufficient quantity of fresh quick
lime' piked within, and then all closed in
from'hollom to top, and covered over to
exclude the eternal air, the lime will
rapidly drfthe air within, which will as ra
pidly take moisture from the grain; and so
'eothinne until thcgrain is dry or the lime
fully:slaked. And as quicklime will ab
itotb one-third its weight of water, a ton of
take between 6 and 7 cwt. of
water, and thus probably dry 6 or 7 tons
'of gpltili and straw ; for all this water must
some from the grain, if the air is excluded,
and the lime raised from the soil 1 a bed
of atones, gravel,
.or straw. The lime
own not of course, touch the grain ; and,
therefore, room should be lett for it to swell
in slaking and for turning it over to slake
all through ; and a sort of doorway must
be left on the side of the rick, which can
be'opened for putting in 'the lime, and for
turning it over ; but must he closed up im
mediately, and kept close, except at those

The following certificate of the restoration to

the case may be, there is a remedy in Hunt's Lin

G. E. Stanton, Esq.--Sir: I feel called upon by
the tie of gratitude to offer the following testimo
ny in favor of your External Remedy, Hunt's Lin
iment. .Nly grandson, Clark E. Evans, who Is
now ten years of age, has been for the last eight
years a nipple, caused by falling .from a chair
when he was two years old, and wrenching his
spine. From the time of the occurrence we have
tried every means to restore him to his natural
shape, but all without avail. We took him to N.
York, and placed him under the care of a physi
cial of skill, and, after remaining there for some
time, we brought him home no better than when
we took him there. For several days at • time
he was so helpless that he could only walk by
placing his hands upon his knees for support, giv•
ing him the appearance of a deformed hunchback.
He was also taken to New burg and prescribed for
without any better success. At times he would be
strong enough to go out of doors, but alter play
ing an hour, would come in perfectly exhausted,
and for several days after would be again perfect.
ly helpless. We had lost all hope of seeing him
restored to his natural shape or strength ; but a
kind Providence placed your External Remedy in
my hands. I have tired but four bottles. and am
rejoiced to say that the boy is now as straight as
any boy of his ag e. Any of my neighbors will
testify to the tru th of this statement. I take sin
cere pleasure in stating these facts for the benefit
of others suffering under a like calamity. Your's
respectfully, RACIIAEL SHUTE.
This is to certify that I am personally acquaint

and frankly bear witness to the'delormity with
which he was seriously afflicted, apparently for

of all sorts of intelligencea.a responsible agent, on

acturer, the mechanic, and every one interested in
the affairs of Congress and the Government, may
rely at all times with implicit confidence.-
It is believed that the establishment of such a
reliable Journal of Intelligence, on terms which
place it within reach of the great masses of the
people, at the commencement of what promises to
be a most interesting and eventful period in the
history of Congressional proceedings, will be re.
garded with favor by all classes of the eommuni.
