On the field of battle, mother,
All night alone r lay,
Angels watching o'er me, mother,
Till the breaking of the day:.
I lay thinking of you, mother, .
And the loving ones at home,
Till to our dear cottage, mother,
Boy again I seem'd• to come.
He to whom you taught me, mother,
On 'my infinOrriee to pray,
gept my heart from faiuting; mother,
When the:vision pass7d away.
In the gray of morning, mother,
omrades bore me to the town
From my bosom tender fingers
Wash'd the blood that trickled down
I must soon be going,-roothor,,
Going to the home of rest:
Kiss me es of old, my mother,
Press me nearer to 3 - our breast.
Would I could repay you, mother,
For your faithful love and care:
God uphold and bless you, mother,
In this hitter woe you bear.
Kisa for me my little brother,
Kiss iny sisters, loved so well:
When you sittogether, mother;
Tell them how their brother fell
Tell to them the story, mother,
When I sleep beneath the sod,
That I died to save my country
All from love to her and God.
Leaning on the merit, mother,
Of the ONe who died for all,,
Peacs: to in my bosom, mother,—
Hark ! I hear the angels call !
Don't you hear them singing, mother?
Listen to the music's swell
NoW I lustre you, loving mother
God he with you—fare:you well.
Ile Domestic Opera.
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
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.

General Bonet met with a cordial re
ception on arriving athis home in Low

Mayor Hereford. , The welcoming. ad

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

dred thousand the government of eight,

and his confederates have undertaken a
rebellioti which they claim is' to secure
the rights of the people.

caring Hams.
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
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
.with Wt.; then 'they should be
laid in a dry tub until the next day.—
.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
_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
"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. Once it enters into a
family, it is extremely difficult to dis
pose, pf. Nothing short of widowhood
furnishes relief in many cases a condition
surrounded by temptation. discomforts,
and - .exposure to a second attack of the
disorder. Some jalap, good apothecary I
