In the volume before us we have biographical sketches of two Brothers both deceased with twelve sermons of one and two of the other prepared and arranged Fer the Public by a third brother who is still living and occupying a prominent in Sitison in the Church with the sermons of lev. J. R. Thompson especially we think both ministers and laymen will be much pleased. They evince thoroughness of preparation and a will be found sound in doctrine devotional in spirit and attractive though a pretending in style. Some May take a Xoe Tion to certain expressions which occur in the fast Day and thanksgiving discourses but candid Reader will at least Accord to the preacher an honest conviction of the justness of his views. The sermons of or. Alexander Thompson Are by no Means without Merit but the biographical sketch is the most important feature of the portion of the volume devoted to him. This Memoir abounds in instruction for All Bat is especially adapted to minister Consolation to the thildred of sorrow. A a %. The loaf amid the rushes. Finding the bread after Many Days. A there Missy Annie 1 what am you1 be going to do wid Dat big loaf of bread. Retch it Back or i �?T1� jes go Tell yer a 3�?� and Rosy the honest old Black nurse Shook her he d authoritatively.

You re Allera possessed in some queer notion or other a your Uncle George is a putting of Yot sup a a but Rose i am not going to do anything Uncle George told me this time. Uncle George do n t know anything about then she added very persuasively a i am going to do with it what the Bible tells us to do and the Bible would Tell me to do what waa right you Rosy was overpowered by this argument visions of a poor ragged beggar child half starved and poorly Clad made the recipient of this loaf by the benevolent hands of Annie flitted before her mind. A take it Missy Annie Quot responded the delighted nurse beaming with benevolent Coupe fiction a May you he Der you Ful Means of a comply she great Good wid . A Rose a exclaimed she a von Are the Best nurse that Ever live a new Pinnise to wont say5anything about my taking the loaf just yet please.�?�. Mistaking Annie a desire for conceal met for a modest shrinking from making particle of a Good deed. Rosy gave the exalted Promise. Annie ran off delighted at having gained her Point. But Annie had no idea of giving the loaf to t by beggar child. In fast. That plan never Ono entered her head. Yet she was perfectly innocent of any intent to deceive Rofle because Sha Nevar once thought what Rii c in to lib Tuppi pc she intended to do with in. So in ii a ipod along the Pashto a a runaway a Spring a with her brain full of schemes and her hands full of bread. When Annie reached the Spring Bhe seated herself on her favorite limb to rest awhile. She thought silently quite a Long while still hugging the loaf As it were a very precious Possession indeed. After a time she said aloud a a i �?T11 go Down to the Pond that a so she followed along the Bank of the Little Stream till it grew larger and wider and deeper and deeper and finally Iell Over a shelf of Rock Down into a pretty Little Pond below. She stood still a moment to watch the pretty drops which played around the foot of the Lively Waterfall. Suddenly she heard a crackling in the Bushes near and with a guilty flush and nervous Start she threw the loaf Over the Rock into the water below just As Uncle George emerged from the spot with his gun on his shoulder. A a heyday 1�?� shouted he As he saw Annie darting away. A a it a Only me Annie do not be so but Annie ran As if the a forty bears were after her. Uncle George thought he would run too to he started after her full a a a come Annie a laughed he Good Nat redly As he overtook the flying child at the Spring a do let sit Down Here and catch our consented half laughing and half pouting for she was afraid her Uncle would question her about that loaf. Sure enough he first thing a a what was it you threw into the Pond As i came up ? it looked like a loaf of bread was it ? say Annie flashed up consciously and almost wished she dare Tell a lie about it. But she was too truthful a child to try to deceive so she finally said a faint a a a a but what were you doing Down there wih a loaf of bread and what made you throw it into the Pond a Uncle George began to look displeased As if he thought Annie had been doing wrong. A a a 0 Uncle George l web not doing anything naughty indeed i was not a eagerly declared Addis. A the fact is Uncle George i am making a Bible Experiment a and Annie looked As if she would burst with importance. R. It Bible Experiment a shouted her Uncle in great amusement. A a of a Experiment is that a Annie looked very Wise but said nothing. A co me Annie Tell me All about a a 0 you ii see one of these Days i am not going to Tell any one just yet a and Annie looked knowing and mysterious. Uncle George not. Say any thing More for awhile but kept hitting the water with a Little stick Udd kept his head Down As if thinking very hard indeed. At last Annie thoughtfully asked a a How Long a Lime is a Many Days a is it a week. Uncle George ? a carious Little smile flitted across her uncles face and Bis eyes twinkled As he answered soberly a just about a week i should judge.�?�. Cuticle any More questions and Annie thought he had forgotten All about her Experiment after that because he not allude to it again. Every Day Annie ran Down to the Spring and came Back looking a Litlo , but still hopeful. But she kept her great secret locked up tight in her Little heart and no one not even Mamma suspected what a whirl of Busy thoughts and plans and Hopes 3dd fears were Woi King and spinning away in behind her town eyes in her Little brain. At last just a week after the foregoing events. Annie burst into the House in a fever of excitement and haste and shouted. A a Uncle George 3 Uncle George 3 0 Mother its come True its come True 3�?� a a what a come True Annie a and Mother looked amazed and Uncle George sober a it belial 1 found it a breathlessly declared Annie exhibiting a veritable loaf a a a where you find it a queried mrs. Butler not knowing what to think. A a where 3�?�. A bight in among the rushes Down by the Spring a gasped Annie her eyes protruding and her voice triumphant. A a a a a who put it there a asked. Uncle George. A a i done to i Iowa the a gels. I guess 3�?� and Annie looked half frightened. Maybe its manna a suggested Uncle George. A a what a that Uncle George a Annie a eyes dilated further yet. A a Why it was a kind of bread that god rained Down every morning and night upon the Camp of the israelite when they were in the then ensued an examination of the loaf and a division of opinions. A to i wish everybody knew it3&Quot exclaimed Annie half wild. A just think a she began its just exactly a Many Days a since i dropped it into the a a what does the child mean a exclaimed mrs. Butler. A a Are you crazy a Annie a. A a a. A a no Mamma. I have been trying a Bible Experiment you see. The Bible says a cast thy bread upon the Waters and thou Shalt find it after Many Days a a and i tried the then there was a burst of laughter that fairly Shook the room and quite Dis composed Annie. A a a a a. A a a poor child a at last said Uncle George As soon As be could Stop laughing. A gome Stop crying and give me a real Good scolding come a and he Drew the woe begone Little girl to his knee. He soon comforted her into a Good bum or and a a owned up to be the a an gel that a put that loaf among the then they had a Good Long talk together and Uncle George told her what the Bible meant by that a a funny As Annie Thongt it. So Annie was comforted and the next Day told Rose All about it because. Rose so kindly kept her Promise not to Tell. A a and Rosy a said Annie with a face full of smiles and tears a a i know now what a casting my bread upon the Waters a. Means and i am going to work the right Way to do it after s museum. A a you Are like a silly Little Pigeon i used to hear about when i was a Little girl a said her teacher. A Bright eyed Little girl raising her right hand said a a 0 please Tell us All about the Pigeon.�?�. A a the Story a replied miss Eaton a a is that when the Pigeon first came into the world All the other Birds came and offered to show her How to build a nest. A the Catbird showed her its nest ail made of Sticks and hark and the sparrows showed her theirs which were Woven with Moss and hair. Hut the Pigeon walking about in a very vain Way and turning her head from Side to Side said a i know How i know How to build my nest As Well As the Best of you a a then the Blackbird showed his nest which was fastened to some Reeds and swung Over the water and the Turtle Dove said hers was build than All for it was quite Flat and made Only of Sticks Laid together. But the Pigeon turned her pretty head As before and said a i know a a at lust the Birds left her. Then the Pigeon found that she hot know How at All and she. Went without a nest until a Man took pity on her and built a Pigeon House some Hay into it. A a now children though the Story of the Pigeon is Only a fable and not True yet you May learn from it a very useful a Little boys and girls who1 Are vain coasters Are laughed at by others and Only deceive themselves like the silly Pigeon they say,11 know How a but they often find to their sorrow when itis1 too late a that they do not. A a. A a remember my dear children that when learn to do anything Well Vou will not need to boast of boasting. Ann Strong was a sad Little blaster. Though she meant to speak the truth she was so vain and thoughtless that no one could believe her. She always wanted a Long lesson. She would say a a i can learn it All it is not too hard for Methought when her class was called out to recite she waa very often sent Hack to her seat to study. If anything was to be done at Home or at school Ann would always say a a i know How please to let me do it a even if it was a thing she could not do at All. Annas teacher wished some one to Point to the names of the cities on a Large map so that All the girls in the class might know where to find them. A a 0, let me do it a said Ann a a i know How As Well As can a a yes you May do it a said miss Eaton but Ann could not Point to a single name that her teacher called. A True Story. A Rich lady was ode Day overtaken by a Shower of rain so sending her servant for a Carriage she took shelter in the cottage of a poor Man. Having to wait a Long time she amused herself with looking at the contents of the Little room in which she a was seated and among other things her Eye fell upon a Large Money Box. Being of a kind disposition she said to it a Little Pale boy who was sitting by the fire a a bring me your Money Box my lad and it i will give you the boys face flushed As be arose and took the Box to the lady and he was still More pleased when he saw her about to put in a Bright new half Crown but suddenly looking up into her face he said a a do you know May am that this is a missionary Box a a. A a a missionary Box a exclaimed the lady a a take it Back then i do not wish to give Money to missions and a if. I make you a present of this half Crown you must Promise me that you will not put a Penny of it into that a i cannot Promise that May am a a said he finely a a father and Mother and me always put part of All the Modey we get into the. Missionary Box and after All a tis Little a a and How came this idea into your Heads a asked the lady a a for i am sure you never heard anything about missionaries in the no May am we never More a the pity but i bought Book one Day of a peddle and it was Lull of such wonderful Sto res about the doings of the Heathen in far off countries that i not believe they could be True however when father read it he said a twas True enough for be had been a Soldier aforetime and travelled in those very places. So then i asked if i could not do anything to help them and Mother said we might have a Box and put in All the Pence we could spare the same As they used to do at the Sabbath school where she went once so father knocked up this and a twas agreed that we should All put in part of what we earned.�?�. A a and what will you do with the Money when the Box is full a asked the lady. A i done to know May am a answered the boy with a puzzled look a a but we would get another Bax and fill that a a the lady smiled and said,1 Gan you the a ally think it a duty to deny yourselves for such a purpose a the boy looked surprised but answered a a after ail that god has done for us May am done to you think that we ought to try to do something for him a just then the lady a Carriage came to the door Bat before leaving she put the Hal Crown into the missionary Box saying in a laughing manner a a i Hope it May do a a god Grant it May a said the boy solemnly a and i thank you in his Many weeks passed away and one Bright sunshiny Day the lady again entered the cottage where she had once taken shelter but this time she was the bearer of Good news. Since her last visit she had been Reading some missionary books and god had led her to see the importance of mis scions and inclined her heart to help them so she had spoken to the Clergyman and to some other people in the Village and the result was that they were going to have missionary meetings and a missionary society among themselves. Erom that time the lady not Only became a. Zealous supporter of missions but she began to take pleasure in All kinds of Good works. Thus god bless the example set by this poor but pious family and thus will he assuredly bless All those who weary not in Well doing for the Promise is sure a that time be shall reap if be faint not a youths Magazine. A. In Illinois alone this year is estimated at two millions of Gallons of which Winnebago county alone gave fifty thousand Gallons. Fourth. In most of the Rural districts where the attention of Farmers has been turned to sorghum the Domestic syrup has nearly or quite driven Cane molasses out of the Market. The former is the clearest the most toothsome and now a Days much the cheapest. Fifth. The consumption of Saccharine food among the Rural population where sorghum is grown has largely increased families that formerly contented themselves with four to six Gallons of molasses per annul each now find a barrel of syrup none too much for the years consumption a fact of great importance to dentists and manufacturers of artificial Teeth and not without its. Value to the political economist. This to believe is a fair summary of the conclusions a arrived at saying nothing of the discussions which the manner of planting cultivating gathering and manufacturing provoked. The showing is eminently satisfactory a let . New machinery new discoveries and new methods will come to their Aid if they persevere and within a few years at the utmost they and we will see All the great Corn regions of the Valley of the Mississippi Independent for their supplies of sugar and syrup of All the rest of the world if indeed they Are hot exporters of these articles to other coun tries less favored than it our own. Quot a the results of sorghum manufacturer a convention of sorghum growers was held at Rockport 111., a few Days ago and the Chicago Tribune gives the following summary of results a it first thed sorghum in All parts of the North West where the larger varieties of Indian Corn perfectly mature is an acknowledged Success. Its adaptation to the soil and the climate the ease with which it can be cultivated and the certainty of a remunerative crop Aro acknowledged proved by experience which has been Long enough and Broad enough to satisfy All. Second,.though the yield of syrup is Large Here the accounts May vary with the variations of soil and temperature the a perfection of machinery used the knowledge care and skill of manipulators and profitable at any figure that syrup is Likely to reach the question ban Crystal sized sugar be profitably produced from the sorghum ? is yet a open one that the convention was unable to Settle. A Large number of samples of sugar have been produced but mostly the result of experiments made on a Small scale and without regard to Cost. But they prove the possibility of making sugar from sorghum. Its profitable production in Competition with the Cane is another matter for the solution of which longer trial More capital and additional experiments Are required third. The amount of syrup made sundry considerations a. animal have a comfortable Protection from the pinching cold and pelting-storms1? if they do not rest assured that their proprietors Are losing Money faster than they Are aware of a put calves in. An apartment by them a selves especially at night where they can be Well fed and where they can lie Down and to comfortable. A few Hundred feet of boards and three hours work will make a comfortable shelter for half a dozen let them be fed with the finest Quality of Hay and some out Cornstalk and Cut Straw with about one quart of. Meal each a daily and let them have a Good of Straw., Golts and All Young horses that have Good Teeth like Oats a threshed Cut up about one Inch in length and moistened. With water. This is a very economical Mode of feeding Oats to Young horses and i think it is preferable to threshing and cleaning them and feeding them separately from the Straw. When there Are a few weak and feeble sheep let them be separated from and placed by themselves where they will receive s Little extra attention a see that store hogs have a Good nest warm and dry As they will not thrive Well when exposed to the wet and cold of Winter. A. A let every Domestic animal have Access at All times to Good water that is near by. A when they Are compelled to go a Furlong or two As Many cattle do they often drink too much which gives them the Colic. Cut Down Timber for saw logs in the fall and let the. Trees fall on Small logs a that they May be ready to be hauled to Mill when the first Snow Falls. When the ground is not Frozen labourers May work advantageously and profitably at picking Stone and other obstructions from the horses Are not exercised in some Way daily let them be turned Loose in the open Field for a few hours if they Are inclined to race about incessantly attach a piece of Large rope about three Jeet Long to a one of the Forward a feet. All animals need exercise a every Day in the open air and even when the weather is quite cold if not Stormy they like to be out in the Field or Yard. A let the manure of the horse stable be spread around the Yard and suffer it not to remain in a Heap and a a fire Fang let potatoes be assorted if it has not been done already and let a Lew bushels of the Best and fairest of them be put in barrels for seed and the interstices filled with dry Sand. By this precaution Good seed will be secured. And who dares to affirm that it is not As important to secure the Best potatoes for seed As Well As the Best ears of Indian Corn ? a a like begets the outlets of under drains and remove everything that obstructs the course of the water which flows out of them. Before the ground is Frozen plow up a few Roods of ground and sow Winter Rye and give it a Light top dressing of Fine. the Grain will make most excellent feed when ground fur horses and oxen also and the Straw is much a better than wheat Straw for them to eat after it has been Cut and it is very bands for binding Cornstalk or anything else.

Country gentleman. A Good butter in Winter. For the Benefit of my lady friends i will give my experience of Twenty five years in making nearly As Good a Winter As in summer. In the. First place a we suppose the cows to have been fed on Good feed. After the milk has been strained put it on the stove to heat either in the pans or in any other Way thought proper. Do not make it too hot or the Cream Wili not Rise it May then be placed in a clean cellar free from vegetables or anything that will give the Cream an unnatural taste or in a a cupboard with a Canvas door in a moderately warm room if in the latter place it should not be put in until the steam has passed off otherwise the shelves will be liable to Mould. The milk should not Brand lodger in Winter than in summer or the butter will be bitter. In 36 or 48 hours it should be. Skimmed if in a Cool place sooner if in a. Warm one. If the milk is thought to be too Rich to give to the pigs let it stand longer and use the Cream that rises on it for shortening or in some other Way than for butter. If the milk has been kept in a Cool place take the Cream to a warm Toom a Day or two before churning. If you wish the butter to look and taste like grass butter grate Orange carrots put some hot water or milk to the pulp Strain and add it to the Cream which should be a Little above 60 degrees when you commenced churning a com Mon sized Teacup full will color six pounds of butter. After churning draw off the Buttermilk put cold water in the churn and churn a few minutes and if managed right you will never fail of having Good butter. I rejoice that the prejudice against washing butter with cold water is slowly passing away. A heating the milk i believe is an English a method and ought to be More generally Practised then there would not be so much poor butter in the Market. So says a Bucks go. Farmer s a am. Agriculturist. Durability of posts. A correspondent of the new England Farmer reports an Experiment on the durability of posts which we rearrange and condense. The Timber used was a yellow Oak a it was Cut in Winter and each log was Large enough to split into two bar posts which were set the following Spring 1st pair butt end Down one charred. Both rotted off the third year the upper ends were then put into the ground and they lasted seven years More. �?~2d pair butt end Down one salted by Boring and plugging. Salted Post gave out the second year the unsalted the fourth year. The ends were then reversed and lasted about eight years longer. 3d pair one butt Down the other butt up. The butt rotted off the third year the other the fourth. The ends were reversed and the new butt rotted one year before the other though the latter was set one year the soonest. 4th pair Small ends Down one salted. Both rotted off the fourth year and being reversed lasted four years will be seen that the charring no Good and salting a Green Post is useless if not injurious. All experiments indicate decidedly that posts set reversed last longest and it appears that seasoned posts lasts longer than Green the seasoned Small ends in the first Experiment lasting about twice As Long As the Green Small ends in the fourth.
