No House can be Kepi warm where the underpinning is Loose and the wind sweeps under the floors. Roots should be made tight and the barn Oloane where the animals stand. Cattle and hogs should be fatted rapidly now both haying dry and warm Beds and fed liberally. Carrots and beets must be gathered before heavy frosts turnips May remain Strawberry Beds should be mulched and tender raspberries Laid Down and protected. Hardy bulbous roots such As hyacinths tulips shown imperials lilies Narcissus Ito can be Plau led As Long is the ground remains open but the bees should be immediately covered a Tew inches deep with . Apple Trees May be transplanted with Success. Bank them up Well with Earth to support them through the Winter in the Spring it must be removed. A a we now hear the Busy flail in the barn As the thrasher pursues his task from Day to Day never lacking company for he surrounded by the whole family of fowls Ever ready to Hunt up a neglected ear that has escaped his heavy blows. In the farmyard we see the cattle knee deep in the broken Straw which the thrasher has turned out and lowing wistfully Over the Fence As if they wondered what summer had done with All its Green and seeming to Sav As plainly As they can speak that they like not the dry provender which is Given to them and care not How soon they Are ankle does in the Rich luxuriant England Farmer. Miscellaneous. 1 i the wintering poultry. Ain not sensible of having a touch of poultry Ever but i am satisfied that agricultural. Calendar for november.

Thus Sang Bloomfield the poor Sheperd boy Many years ago and it is his idea conceived amid the toils and hardships incident to such a condition that we should like to introduce into the family of every Farmer in new England. That november should no longer be considered a month in which people May with great propriety hang or drown themselves on account of its gloom but rather with the poet that each shall be with Kindred pleasure moved and that their kindly Intercourse of life shall prove 44 a Bond of Amity Aud social and How much cause there is for this in november about the tar Mere a Home Bene i Lieut heaven has crowned his labors with Success. His barns and granaries and cellars Aro filled with the fruits of the Earth hut cattle come to their Winter Home sleek und fat with Rich pasturage while his cheerful fireside air vacuous invite to that delightful Intercourse of which the poet Aud we believe this to be a object As Well worthy of culture and care As were Farmers might generally Winter them in a Maimer to receive a greater profit for their outlay. For Sescial Yeats i have adopted a plan which has been a great improvement Uii the old one of feeding them once or twice a Day. Firefly they should have a place in which to Winter so warm that one Seldom gets his comb Frozen. Mine Winter under my horse barn which is Twenty four by forty eight feet. Under lie North half of the barn is a cellar for roots and the Bottom of the Sill a trifle above the level ground Oil the North end. The land descends to the South sufficiently to have an open shed under the South half which is ten feet from the ground to the Sill and has a Good substantial Stone Wall in Lime mortar on three a ides of it but open to the South. Over this shod or open cellar Are my stables and the manure passes through the floor. This Shell is occupied by cows and poultry though the poultry have the same Range they had in summer. Their roosting place is in one Corner of tit is sited just below the silts with a shelf by the Side of the Roost. As soon As they require feeding in the fall i set a Large Box of Corn or a liter feed on the shelf and keep a Good Supply by them. For a fortnight they will consume More food than before then become fat Anil the rest of the Winter i think they require no More food than by the old method. The result has invariably been if they Stop laying in december Many of them commence in january and february and through the Spring months they do better than they did by the old treatment and if a fat Chicken is wanted they Are sure to be fount without the trouble of cooking expressly to fatten. The glowing Orchard and it uits and Golden Grain of the the Fields. These will sustain our physical nature but that will strengthen the immortal part. By giving elasticity and Contentment to the mind. Nature is the great teachers her school House doors Ever stand open inviting the inquirer iut but november is the Mouth in which we May be More constant in her courts because better opportunities Are afforded for thought and application than in the summer Mouths. Quot e urge the Young to find benches and books and teachers All about them in the solid Earth and stones upon which they tread a in the air they breathe in the leaves which Are borne upon he Breeze in the sunlight and Shade the Vapours fronts Dews Aud Clouds. Kach will i Turl some useful truth to him who is willing to seek it. Wisdom is the Price of careful application it cannot be gained by Idle and listless minds. Study and labor will overcome All obstacles books and teachers Are new abundant to become an Earnest student it is not necessary to Euter the school House with modern desks and seats and con Loren to codes and regulations. An Active mind will find objects for research and Boontem Platou everywhere in every employment and place. Of Tebee occupy his attention they will Lead him to books and these will reveal to him the thoughts and efforts of other minds As Earnest As Hie own. Men of great acquirement Dull Over systematic lessons and restive under arbitrary rules have filled the ear of the world and thus proved that they were students All thu while in the great school room of nature. They prepared themselves for the Active business of life rather than to be Nice and critical m Mere Book learning. For this preparation none Havo belter opportunities than the Young Farmer. Six Mootha of the year Atford him As much Leisure As is desirable for study and Inzenga lion and during the other six while engaged in his out door pursuits he May apply his acquirement to the things about dim. N this Way his mind will become stored with useful fact Soch a Are applicable to the profession of his Choice. As these Are mastered the mind will stretch away into other studies and scan the Pur suits of other men through the whole Range of the sciences and arts. November then May be a pleasant Day profitable month for the Farmer. It has its the roup. The disease described by our correspondent below is called the roup. It is proscribed for fully in every Good work of poultry and is easily cured if taken in time. The following is our remedy which to have practice with Success for years in cold weather Wash the head of the fowl with warm soap suds from two to four times a Day As it May require. In warm weather cold soap suds is the Best. Then take a pin or awl. And open the nostrils Wall so that it can breath freely. After this operation give a teaspoonful of Sweet Oil or butter if a Small Hen and Noru if a Large one and keep her in a warm Placo in the Winter and a Shady one in summer. Feed lightly when ill with Indian meal dough or Mush unsalted or other Light food. Fowls get the roup More frequently from being too closely confined or for want of fish air than any other cause. A a Saville l. I. Sell 4, 1854. Lately my hens have become partly diseased the remedy for which i cannot find in any work on poultry i possess. They Lay no eggs. The symptoms Are a Short shrill enough As if trying to throw up something.

Annie Linton was the Best sewer in mrs. In Ruyts school and her mistress the flared on inspecting the first shirt she made for her father that the Duke Bauc Euph himself might Wear in a this was High Praise for Little Annie who was Only eleven years of ago and she never forgot it. Her work was the neatest and cleanest Ever then she did Uso quickly her Mother could not keep Pace with her daily demand for 4 something to 111 wish Annie would take to her Book a said mrs.

But it was quite Clear thut Annie never would take to her Book she had Little Reading and less spelling and yet she could 4 Mark a with Cotton All the letters of the alphabet us if she was a very Miracle of learning. A a something to sew a eagerly demanded Annie. 44 will any mowing come of this sewing a asked her father with a very natural attempt at Pun. Quot those who do not sew shall not reap a said Little Annie cleverly taking up her fathers meaning and her work bag at Tho same time As she whisked past him in ear of being Loo late to school. 4�?~ Annie a learning to be a scholar a a Aid mrs.

The sum originally was twelve shillings. This was All designed for her father alone but a prior claim had come in the Way. It was cold Winter weather and the children of the school brought the forms in a sort of Square round mis. Roys fire. Annie who was a favorite of the mistress always occupied a warm Corner close to her own big on the Day in question mrs. Roy happened to be out of Tho room a a a i my change seats with you Jessie Wilson if you a re cold a said Annie addressing a Little girl a very Book room who Clad in a threadbare printed Cotton gown Sal shivering Over her lesson. Jessie thus invited came a Little nearer. 44 you should put on a Woolen frock like mine and warm yourself Well at your mothers fire before you come to school these Winter Days a said Annie scrutinizing the poverty struck appearance of the girl. 44 Mother says a replied Jessie a a that she d rather do without a Firo than my schooling and she can to pay for it has your Mother to Gre at Homo this cold weather 1�?� asked Annie in amazement. 44 no a said Jessie 44 i wish i dared bring her with me Here a it s warmer than at Home.

A a have you plenty to eat if you a to no fire a asked Annie. 44 this is the first Day Mother has been forced to Send to to school without any breakfast a said Jessie hanging Down her head As if ashamed of the of crossion. 1 Here a said Ansie after a slight pause had Annie been a poet Sha would assuredly Hare written not is song but a song of the shirt Lorone when she was questioned As Totlis Dull Monotony of her work a Dull i delightful a said Aonie in advocacy of her calling.

Annio herself having risen from the ranks a had a present for every work woman. Indeed it was a Day of presents for on that Vecty morning and in Lime to be worn at the wedding a shawl arrived for Annie All the Way from India a an Indian shawl that a dutchess would Havo envied upon it was pinned a paper on which was written a a a Wear this for the Sake of one who is now Rich and Happy but who never can forget Tho services you rond Crotsl to the poor school girl a Jessie a a Annie a said Young sea Well after Tho marriage a i fell in love with you when you was a child and came to our shop for your first sewing.

One of our fellow citizens who owns and cultivates half an acre of land says that he has raised from it All the vegetables he shall want for his own family use and now has a surplus Worth from thirty to forty dollars to dts Poso besides he already raises about fifty varieties of fruit and says that in five years he will produce one Hundred varieties of fruit from this half Aore. This Matt cultivates Bia land intelligently and consequently to some purpose a Bangor whig. How to Burn coax. The great mistake of All is to put on too much goal As if it were Wood the greater the Quality the greater the heat. If Loo much Coal is applied the combustion is necessarily imperfect because the fire in a choked up a the or angst destroyed and the elements of the Coal slowly escaping pass off to Tho Chimney unconsumed or Are disseminated in Gaaei through the room. Whereas if the strata of Coal be but moderate a red flame will play around the Interior of the stove by which entire combustion Ami a healthy heat Are secured. One ton of Cost therefore by thorough combustion will often secure More beat and a healthier Almos phere than two Tona used in the Ordinary Way and this is a fact which can easily to demonstrated. It will be very important Tom a Little girl like me but a a and she put two shillings into Jessie hand a u that to to buy something to eat and a a to and if your Mother can sew As Well As i can a said Annie with pardonable vanity Quot i can Tell her How to get plenty of Money to pay for both. No wonder Aunie riches increased the first investment was a Good one. Nevertheless the concealing it from her parents she knew to be wrong she Leared they would disapprove and added to her Little prayer at night after the usual ending of a god bless father and Mother a and forgive me far Kern no secret that i helped Jessie Wilson could the recording Angel carry tip a purer prayer to heaven or course or. Ami mrs. Linton very soon discovered that or. Samwel of the a ready made Linen warehouse a was the source of Annie wealth.

Tho following is taken from a speech of of go Cmor Briggs of Massachusetts when and Eltoro delivered we know not. We Cony it As furnishing striking illustrations of a truth which cannot to too often impressed upon those who fancy that they a a can drink or lot it alone a that the growth of the drunkards appetite is imperceptible to himself though painfully Ovid ont to his friends and associates. Were this truth More generally appreciated fewer cases of hopeless intemperance would occur to Challenge the Public sympathy or nity or scorn. The path of safety is found in entire abstinence alone and multitudes who have fancied that they could walk securely in the Way initiatory to drunkenness Havo found too Inte that a a wine is a mocker a which a at Tho last hitch like a Serpent and Sti Goth like an say gov.

Along with my brother who was collect ing matter fur a work he was about to pub Lish i visited Tho interesting town of Viox Ham interesting at least to him for it was a Fine Field for historical re search although for my own part i found Little to a Miro be a ides its ancient Church. Tho circumstance which More than anything else obtained Tho Dingy town a lasting Plano in my memory was our taking u lodging with a extra Ordinary pair an old Man and woman husband and wife who lived by themselves without child or servant subsisting on the letting of their parlor and two they were tall thin and Orect though each seventy years of ago. When to knocked it Tho door for admittance they answered it together if we rang Tho Bell Tho bus band and wife invariably appeared Sido by Side All our requests and sent ends were received by both and executed with Tho utmost nicety and exactness.

Ready wit speaking of a writer who bad Given John Randolph credit for a reply to did not Maka Tho Knickerbocker says i can excuse him for attributing All the wit in Congress to John Randolph of Ronoak Sinco he is probably not aware that John Ever found his match there.

He was a Man of Soto pretension and pomp and who on occasion knew How to a put on airs a to serve a purpose lie was a Man who spoke often and commanded always the attention of the House. Or.

He did not often speak but when he did to was a Man of ins Anable directness of aim. And to despised the vulgar arte of Rha Tono and political chicanery just about equally. It happened that some measure in which or. Livermore took a deep interest was before the House and the Howe in Good mood for Lavo Rable action but or. Smytha Lor some reason or Oiler Wax determined to Tako it out of time. It became of the last importance to strangle him in some Way and this is an operation which a new Hampshire Man cannot ordinarily perform with much Success upon a full blooded virginian in the full tide of Success Fril debate.

Tho account Lioy gave of themselves was extremely affecting and no doubt was entertained of its truth. It appears that but a few weeks had elapsed since those poor Little wanderers and resided with their parents in London.
