OCC tr LTA TI ON.—Early in the even
ing. of Friday, Decemlxtr Oth, the beautifid
planet Jupiter, will, with all his satelites,
appear to the inhabitants of the U. states,
to be eclipsed by the moon, under circum
stances the most favorable to o►bservation.
A phenomenon, which it is hoped, will not
be permitted to polo unnoticed.
The Inm►ersion will take place on the dark
and the Emersion on the enlightened side of
the ttlooll.
An occultation of this planet is of very
rare occurrence; the last that was obServed
in this country, happened in the autumn of
1820, and another t* not to be expected li►r
many years.

the Poughkeepsie Journal, that Mr. ;Solomon
Wright, of the town of Fishkill, died last

quantity of rum, which he took to relieve
himself from an attack of intennitting tiwer.

A Northampton farmer has for three
yearstried_the-__experimentor seleeting-seed- 1
corn from stalks having two or more ears,
and the result has exceeded his expectation:
he freqnently finds stalks with 3,_4,_..5,_zuul
sometimes 6 ears, and __3 of them, fair, full
grown, and fit for seed, and that too in hills
of 4 or 5-stalks.: - His -crop-is increawd- this

picking corn, tic those ears found on one
stalk together, and they can be recognized
when husking.

The fallowing story gives a livery idea of
the Russsian ride of Poland: 7 —A Jew met a
Cossack in the forest; the titter robbed him
of his Horse. On returning to .thq,town he
lodged a complaint with the mayor in com
mand, who was, with what truths "we shall
see, reputed to be a most rigOrous disciplin
arian. The Cossacks were paraded, the
robber pointed out v when, with the utniost
effrontery, he declared _that he had,. found
the horse. "How," replied the Jew;
was on his back.?' "Yes," replied the Cos
sack, "I found you too; but having no use
for, a Jew, I did not keep you." The excuse
was deemed sufficient, and the Jew lost his

The magistrates of Birmingham, Eng.
have lately made a decision which affects
the usual rules observed in the Love_Feasts
of the :Methodists. On the previous Son(lay
afternoon, a man named Ingrain, Who had
either been expelled or who had w,ithdrawn
ti.orn the society, presented the
door, to attend the Love Feast, but had no
"admission ticket." On his persisting that
he had aright to enter, he was (breed out,
and complained betbre the magistrates of the
assault. They decided that, "as it was a
registered place of public worship, .the de
fendants had no right to prevent any person
whatever from attending any service;" and
the defendants were accordingly fined for,
the assault.
The Vermont Legislature, in joint com

BREAD.---,"Bread is the staff. of life"—so
says the ancient proverb. Bread is literally
a composition of flour, water, and yeast;
and it is seldom the case in this happy coun

that a sober and industrious family is in want
of a morsel of bread.
In many parts of the world bread in a lit is seldom seen. in the West In

plantains and yams are most common:illy
used instead; and in Ireland pgatoes are
naually_subst itutedfor_that article.
