The' warm air of a close vehide-is lep injjiriojis, bo it'ever Bo foul, from' crowding, than to ride and sit still and feel uncomfortably cold for an hour. The worse that can happen from a crowded conveyance is a fainting Rp(>ll ; while, sitting even less than an hour in .ij still, chilly atmosphere, has induced attacks of pncunioma^ that Is, niilaniation of the lungs, which of en prove fatal in three or f^our da^-s.

Ilonce, there it no advantage, and alwny.s danger, especially lo weakly persons, in sleeping in an at-iruispherc 'culdci' inaii the Treezihg point.

In winter the body is easily clijlj,ed through and throiiiili,. iinles.s' the htaiuojjL has-, been fortified with a good warm breakfast ; and in warm v.-eather, miasniatic and malarious gases and emanations speedily act upon the empty and week stomach in a way to vitiate tiie circulation aiid indiico fever and ague, diarrhœa and dysentery ; entire families, who have arranged to eat breakfast before leaving the lionne, and to_ take supper before snndown, have had a complete exemjition from fever and ague, while the whole coinnmnity around them was aunerittg from it, from having jieglect-ed these precuiiliuiis. That whatever lessens a cough is "good" for it, and,if persevered in, will cure it. On the contrary, all coughs are soom-st curcd by pn^moting and increasing them ; because nature eu- up the phlegm and yellow matter which is in the lungs, as the lungs cannot heal while that matter is there. And as it cannot be got rid of without coughing-, the more coughing there is, the soon,er"g.6t rid of—the sooner is the lungs cleared ont for the fuller and freer reception of pure air, which is their natural food.

Wlien TEo Hen¥£o has passed upon thebfll and the President has signed it, the union of the Union party will be closer than ever. This result just at this time is of the highest importance, for there were be-gining to be very serious jloubts_iiot of the hitenlion but of the Bagaaty of the Union party. A few days since a gehtlenian sitting in a circle of persons unfriendly to tho Government read aloud Mr. RaymoutVs national natur-bill. After sonio sarcastic comments by the company,an e.vrebel officer said: -"No mattei^ .Dou'^troiiblc yQurseLves. The doinniant parly is going to pieces fast enough, and then wic and the, Democrats will just have things our owii way." r. ■it. vvaii very plain peril. The consequences of a serious division among Union men at this time would be incalculably disastrous, and whoever precipitates it, whoever does not labor strenuously to prevent it, hasteps a catastrophe which should appall every honest man in the country. It wotild be inlinitely worse .t.hau.4i-4i4ore party defeat, it would involve the honor and peace of the naiion: Every object for which the Union party is now contendiwg, with \yhatever differences of view a.s to method, would be wluilly lost. . The Union policy of leorganiziition would bo scornfully repudiated,and the President,whom the ex-rebels iit!<l their abeltorri now obsoqul oiisly Hatter, refusing, as he would i-e-fuiie to Kubmit to their dictation, would bo contemptnouo^y eet aeidf. Why slioiild men shicerely devoted t'j the wise reorganization of the—Union and to securing the evident results of the war tolerate the mere possibility of such a peril 'i Surely wc are all agreed upon tertain substantial, fiinclamental p(jiiits Upon the abstract delinition of the exact status of tlie iinorganizcd .States we dilier. But that ja a.purely theoretical (picstion. The essential practical jioiiit is, that they are not to resume their full powers in the Union except upon certain conditions, and upon that point there is no differeiice. Thus we all agree that the constitution ail right of secession .must be plainly disavowed ; that the rebel debt must not be recognized ; and that the Emancipation amendment must be supported in good faith. But still further we are agreed, and the Piesidcnt and the Lieutenant-General asfcnt, that there must still be military occupation <)f those States for the security of their own inhabitants as well us for that of the country ; and that the Frcedmen's Bureau must be maintained to make tho radcal chaOge of the industrial sys-teiQ as smooth and ea3y...ivs4^riLCtjcablc^^^ such as loosen the phlegm, and thus less cough is retiuired to bring it up.

Kkei' tbe Best Stock.—An exchange truthfull,^ says :—Some farmers are in a habit oT selling their best live stock, and keeping the poorest lo breed from. This is a.mismanagement. If a farmer has a good cow,she is worth as much to keep as to sell. The same applies to all other stock. The nilo should be, heep the best and sell, the poorest. Wc will illustrate a case as follows : Farmer A has a cow^that gives 20 quarts of milk a day, from which 9!hs, of butter are made in a week, worth 30 cts. per pound, lie also has a cow that gives but 10 quarts, from which four pounds of butter only can be made ip a week. One cow ha values at $80, and the other at $40. He sells the $80 cow and keep the other for his own use. Now. let us see haw the account will stand, in regard to the proj^fs from Ihi^ cowsv Tho best,,covv, 9 lbs. of ijutter a week, say from May 1st to December 1st—30^ weeks—274 J lbs., at 30 cts.,—$82.35. The other cow produces in the same time 122 lbs. of butter, 30 cts., amounting to only $36,60, which is $45.-16 profit less than the best cow affords. It costs, in this case, tho same to feed eaph cow, and it is safe to say, that the advantage in is npr iuTpiji)er1¿jlIowu m ^^ statement. A farmer actually Ihroics away from ^25 to $40 each season, when he Bells a first rate cow, and keeps a poor oae in her place. • And more than this there is no serious disagreement among Union men as to the fact that the Freedmen, becoming by the act of emancipation free men, must sooiier or later sliare every guarantee of individual rights that any free man enjoys, includhig, of course, the sulVr^age, Upon these great vital points there is substantial unanimity of opinion house or out of it, no appearance of a white collar, hair •equaaned" upon thé head, with plenty straying about the heck, do rtot giyo the husband^ if posesses any idea of clcanlinosB himself, a very elevated idea of his wife's attractions, nor with the daughter, who may Ije equally delinquent, ini-p.resa the young men of the neighbot^ hood very favorably. TnmTi"^fe an^ "hiraMkeeper," ttS^^ have been a daily worker fot" tweàty-fîve years, but I have never seen tlie day when I could not take the time to attend to my personal appearance.

Will not then, my sister honskeepers giytî tins quesiiojLiif-domestic prop^ ety- or respectabiUty, their eerioua consideration?

Col. F-a very irritable and impatient man had occasion once, while passing on horseback througli a small town in the We^t, to patronize a Dutch Blacksmith. "Are you the sihith?^'he asked of a stout, black-bearded, smoking, diity old nian, who camo out of the shop to look at the horse's defective shoes.

The Colonel went away and returned at the ajipointed time, ft)und the blacksmith still at work on his horse. He was very wroth when he saw the stale ofaflairs but he went away again with the promise that ifr "von half hoivr longer," the shoes would be set. After diuoei, in no very mild humor, he made his appearance again at the shop, and asked what was to pay. "Four sheelingi" "Four shillings ! It's an imposition," exclaiming the fiery Colonel.

The malteiMs explained by a legal gentleman us MLoW^^^ That part bt thft laws oL 186.5 which you publish "is only an amendment of a sjection of the revised statutesf in reference to the election of Oversenirs of lligiiways. The section refered to directed tiieir election at the Town^meet-ing. Tlie law of 1865. amends this section by leaving out of it this direc-_ lion to elect these officers, and provides for their appointment by the Conmiis-of Highways, but makes no change in the section so far as it pertains to As-Re.^sorR, as will be sceii by a reference to tlie revised statutes." The law of 1865 says : "iicction three,, ot^tTn?iHwo of chaptcr eleven, part first, of the i e-vised statutes, is liereby amended ¡o as to r(!ad as follows : 'There shall »e chosen at the annual town meeting, one Supervisor, oho Town Clerk; three Assessors," &c...........rr'- Now, section three, of the Statutes above referred to and intended to be amended, begins in the same way, thus :—"There shall be chosen at the Town Meeting; one Supervisor, one Town Clerk, thi-ee it will bo seen that no ehiiiigehasTieeu made as to Assessors, by this law of 1865, and if it is now liewssary tc| elect three Assessors annually, it had been equally necessary since ISlO^'when thewcttoTi^refmTCd to-wDus But it has not been necessary for many years, because this section of the Statute was modified, so far as it related to Assessors, by section-4, of Chapter 180, of the laws of 1845, which says: "There shall be elected at the next Annual Towi) Meeting, three Assessors in each Town, who shall be classified as Oommissintipffl nf Highw.iya .irp, by face may fall to the bottom it^Hitirred round, the deposit takes place, and t^ cofflge poured off is ready for use. 1» order to separate 'the dreg« more oow pletely the coffee may be paeaed through a clean cloth, but genenJtjr this ia not necessary, aud- ..^often prejn^ dicial to the pure flavor of ^(Ttorm^ age.

Foundlund, In the last week in December, nearly eight thousand cattle died of it b Eng- ^ land. It appears to be very fatal. I» a l>articular locality, a report for the r\veuk etiding Christmas, showed that •'two hundred and sixty beasts faav«r been attacked, one hundred aiyi sixty-five of which have died, fifty-five are still ni, ten have been killed or shot, ■ and only twenty have recovered." Aa no successful plan of treatment haa been proposed, the owners of cattle aro obliged to ~re?y chiefly' on hygenio mtasuros, and those not so much to cure the disease, as to prevent it» spread! The plague is creating a pan» ic throughout the kingdom. It hú» been raging but about twenty-iive weeks in that country, and fifty thousand animals have died of it. The cattle ofthe British Islands constitute an important item of wealth. . They are estimated tiv number between- seven andeight millions, and to be worth ;ei0,fl00,000.
