Since the night that Ike went to the opera, he has been, as Mrs. Partington says, as crazy as a bed bug, and the kind old dame has been fearful lest he should become "non pampas mentus" through his attempt st imitating the operatics. The next morning after the opera, at the breakfast table,. Ike reached over his cup, and in a soft tongue sang--z - Will you, will you, Mrs. P.,. . Help the to a cup of tea? The old lady looked at •him with sur prise, his conduct was so unusual,,and for a moment she hesitated:_ coo. tinned in a far more impassioned strain Do not., do not keep me, waiting: Do not, pray, ho hesitating. am anxious to be drinking, So pour wit as quick as winking. She gave hiai the tea with a sigh, ise sbe saw the excitement in his face. He stirred it in 6.13E6, sad in his abstiac tion took three spoonfills of sugar. At last he sang, again— Table cloths, and cups and saucers, Good white bread and active jaws, sirs, Tea—=giinpowder and sonchong— Sweet enough but not too strong, Bad for health to eat hot biscuit, But I'll risk it—butter'll fix it. "What do you mean; my boy ?" said Mrs. Partington, tenderly. All right, steady, never clearer, Never loved a breakfast dearer, I am not bound by witch or wizard, So don't fret your precious gizzard. "But, Isaac," persisted the dame.-- Ike struck his left hand upon the table, and swung his knife aloft - in his right, looking at a plate upon the table, sing ing— What form is that to me appearing ?• Is it mackeral or is it herring? Let me dash upon it quick, Wet again, that fish shall kick— Ne'er again, though thrice as large— Charge uppn them, I saac, charge 1 Before he had a chance to make a dash upon the fish, Mrs. Partington had dashed a tumbler of water into his face to restore him to "consoiontiousness." It made him catch his breath for a mo ment, but he didn't sing any more at the table, though •the opera fever fol lows him elsewhere. llkiltubtaf Vtansgthaaia Nunn': gthateV Yiftraturt, Agritulfart, ctin of fly gag, Yotal afntriligtatt, MAJOR GENERAL BUTLER AT HOME. General Bonet met with a cordial re ception on arriving athis home in Low ell. `The meeting4a,s presided over by Mayor Hereford. , The welcoming. ad dress - was made by the Hon. John A. Goodwin, to which General Butler re plied, by giving seine account 'of what: Lowell 'regiments bad 'done is the war; he then went ort to speak of the eatise of the Union, saying that whoever be lieves in God must believe in the ul- timate victory. He had changed no principle since he had left them, brit he had learned something. .fle added; "I have - found - that This rebellion is a rebellion against the - working Classes, without distinction of color. The re-: hellion was begun and is carried on for the purpose of creating a landed aris tocracy, which shall give to four 'bun= dred thousand the government of eight, millions - of whites' and" four- million of blacks. It is for that that Jell Davis and his confederates have undertaken a rebellioti which they claim is' to secure the rights of the people. "It is to correct this idea that the Northern man, with red blood, blue eyes hair,'atid all that God gives to this image of himself, is not equal to the sluie-drivers, with their thin lips and pallid brows.

As this is about the period of the year when most.families lay down _their meat for the summer use,- a few sugges tions on the subject:. will be 'acceptable 'to•many. Pork Hams —When the meat is per fectly cold, after being killed, it is ready to be salted. The•salt should , be. of the best,qualiky, and to every pound of it one ounce of fine white sugar should he adde4. - The hems should be laid upon a table or bench, and every part carefully rubbed .with Wt.; then 'they should be laid in a dry tub until the next day.— The .same operation should be, repeated every day for four days, taking care to turn, the hams in ,the tub every time they are laid down. After this the ep eratiph may be repeated'ence every two day's for a week, when it will be found that 'the meat' has ibscirbed snfficienf salt to preserve it for family use. After this _they may be slightly smoked or hang up to dry, Hama intended for sale should be once rubbed over with the salt as described, then placed in a strong pickle. This pickle_ should be made,of the best salt-10 lbs. to 100 lbs. of pork, with,one once of „sugar ; to the ponnd_added, and half an (mace of salt peter to the ten pounds of salt, all ed for _ about fifteen minutes, and the froth skimmed off; it is that set aside to cool. -When cold, the hams may be placed in this pickle and left for three weeks. They should then be lifted, hung up for three or four days en drip, and ire' then fit to be smoked. For family use, instead of smoking the hams after -they are salted and dripped, if they are simply rubbed over with black pepper and hung up for a few days to, dry, the meat acquires a very fine flavor. A mild - smoky taste may be given to hams without 'Smoking them, by simply smoking, the barrels in which they are to be laid down . ip This is a good-plan, because the taste of the Bp* which some persons like— is given to the meat without, discoloring it. Sides of pork should be treated in the same-ix antler as hams laid in the same manner as hams laid in the pickle; but for perms use, during winter, by Merely, rubbing the sides with salt every day for a week,or ten days then hang : lag them in a moderately cool place to dry foinse, the meat is much sweeter than that laid dOwn in piCkle. The . . amount of Salt for rubbing on the meat does not require to be - stated; no Per son can go - wrong by rubbing on too great a quantity. The sugar is used for the purpose nullifying, the bitter taste of the saltpetre and also that cif any bitterid- - -salphate of Magnesia or'sul phate of soda—that may be in the salt.

Domestic Receipts. Direction for Making Yeast and Good Bread.—All housekeepers who desire to make good bread have only to follow the recipe given below to secure the happy result. I have tested the matter, and know that there is no humbug; and all the extra.trouble about it is more than balanced by the superior quality of the article produced. Firstly : 7b make Yeast.—Take two handful of hops, 3 pints of water, 6 potatoes, and boil them all until the potatoes are soft; then pare them, mash through a cullea der, and strain the liquid. Put it in your preserving k6ttle over the fire, and add one cup of sugar, one tablespoon ful of salt, and one of ginger ; add flour enough to make it of the consistency of paste, and then let it boil five minutes, stirring it all the time. Turn out, and when partially cool add half a pint of good yeast. Let this stand till fermen tation takes place, and the job is done. In the winter I keep it in a stone jar in the cellar, but'in the summer I dry it by mixing - it with corn meal, and spreading it on the table exposed to the air (not sun). Secendly : To maize Bread.—Wash and pare 24 good potatoes boil them with a large handful of salt till reduced to a fine pulp; strain - through a cullender, add 3 pints of sweet milk, and when cool enough to bear your - hand in it, stir in flour enough to make a thick butter; to this sponge add a coffe'e cup of the yeast, ma king the sponge at night. In the morn ing I add six quarts of new or sweet milk and 3 gills of lime-water, and kneed it into a stiff'dough. In two or two three honrs after kneading, it will be light and porous as honey comb; knead it down, and after it has again risen, mould it and put it in pans, Let it stand till it rises again ; then wash the loves over with cold water—this prevents the for mation of, too hard a crust—and bake in a : well heated oven, When baked, wash again, wrapping it closely in your bread cloth. (live this a fair trial, and I will warrant satisfaction.--Country Gentle man. "Must have the Measles." "lleaSles," said the physician, every body must have the measles. It is mere ly nature's effort to throw off an impuri ty incident to the development of the body.. A simple remedy will soon re lieve the child, and then we must look for something else in the way of disease." And it is strange that measles are so prevalent. Not the crimson rash, and fever, and catarrh, but the moral disease which is offensive to virtue and encour aging to vice. There is a kind of family measles for which no remedy has ss yet been, found. The ruling symptons are high words, breaking of crockery and furniture, and slamming of doors. When the complaint reaches a climax, there are tears, and sobs, and expression of regret that she "had ever seen such a brutt, I" The disease often appears sud denly when a button is missing from a skirt, or the dinner is late, or not cook ed- toe turn. rt becomes violent when . the poor woman has gone out for an air ing in the afternoon, and somebody goes home to find that somebody else is not there'to receive somebody's pent np all:Lamer. It is much aggravated by a refusal to furnish money fora sat of furs or a sky-scraping bonnet, and has fre quently proved almost fatal when some body was too mean to take somebody else to a ball.
