A. JiONK. The Pilgrim Fathers landed in December. Il was an unusually milil winter for thiit part of thu courilry. There was little snow, but there were many cold rain- slorins. Mild as was the weather, they 'sulfured greatly from exposure and hardships. The men traveled through the woods for days, oftentimes drenched with rain that froxe upon their clothing, and they slept in the open air at night, until a place had been found on which to make their settlement. Then they worked busily, c u t t i n g down trees, sawing them to proper lengths, and hewing them into shape for building log-houses. All this time they slept under such miserable shelter its" they could make with boughs of trees and reeds, the women and children and some of the sick men remaining on board the ship. it was perilous as well as laborious to collect materials for building. Those who went to the woods for logs, and others who went to the streams for reeds and with which to thatch the roofs, took w i t h them their breast-plates of iron, their heavy, swords, . and their still heavier muskets, t h a t were rested on the forked head of a stall' when tired. Sometimes a strange noise among the trees would make them drop axe and saw, hastily buckle on their jackets of iron, gird on their swords, place their heavy muskets on the rests, and kiudle the matches with which to touch oil' the charges. In t h i s work the military experience of Miles Standish became of service, lie was a tough campaigner, more than half of whose thirty-seven years had been spent in knocking about the world as a soldier of fortune. His trade, was fighting, and the smell of powder was a scent delightful to his nostrils. He had roughed it too much iu Flanders to bo troubled about tramping around in rain and mud, or sleeping in the open air in midwinter ; and as for fearing a half-naked Indian, had he not knocked in the head many a steel-clad Spaniard, more formidable and ferocious than a dozed painted savages? With his rough ..manners and camp phrases, the sturdy little captain was not exactly the kind of man the peace-loving and devout Pilgrims would have chosen us one of their number under other circumstances; nor were their precise ways altogether according to his iancy ; but they needed his courage and military experience, and ho admired their sturdy independence, and was moved by his love of a d v e n t u r e to share their perils in the American wilderness. Besides, he had been smitten by the charms of a Kose that bloomed among the English Puritans in Leyden, and in making her his wife was content to link his fortunes with those of her friends. So Captain Miles Standish trained his companions in the xise of the broadsword, taught them how to handle quickly and tire the matchlock and the snaphance, and boasted that in a little while he would make them tit to meet twice their number of Spaniards, let alone a lot of howling savages with no armor Jmt a *kin, and no weapons better than a bow and arrows w i t h heads of brass and deer's horns. At tirst wns built the common house, for the shelter of all on shore, until the separate dwellings could be built, and then for meetings. NVxt a small hospital for the sick, of whom there were several, a shed for the provisions, and then dwellings arranged along a street leading from the t-rown of the hill to the water. Koughly squared logs, with the chinks daubed with clay, formed the sides ; the reofs were thatched with reeds, and the window sprees rilled with paper soaked in linseed oil, instead of with glass. As the town grew into existence it needed a name, and by common conent it was called New Plymouth, Old Plymouth being the last place in which they had trodden the soil of England, and there, during their stay, they had found kind treatment. The land along the main street had been divided into nineteen lots, for the nineteen heads of families, and it was intended to build a dwelling-house on each. But there was no occasion for so many houses. Their long confinement on shipboard, the salt diet to which they h.ul been confined, and the exposure to cold and rain after landing, brought on diseases that swept l i k e a pestilence through the band of Pil grims. Nine days after the landing, in the midst of a terrible storm that prevented communication between the ship and those on shore, died Richard Britteridgc. His was the first funeral at Plymouth, some of the mourners hastily, tilling in the grave, whilst others stood to their arms in tear of an attack by Indians. Three days afterwards died Solomon Prowev, and a few days later Diggory Priest was dead. Christ oplier Man in fell sick and died after a very short illness, and next Hose Stand ish, the young wife; of the sturdy Captain, was struck down by the pestilence and buried in the graveyard, which now gave promise of being more populous than the street. Then the pestilence raged with full sway. Two or three died in a day. Those who escaped death were mostly stretched helplessly sick, many with their limbs stiffened and racked witli excruciating pains. At one time hut seven k out of the whole company were able to move about. Never in his Flanders campaigning had Miles Standish been so busy a man as now. Hewing down huge trees"; rending and chopping them i n t o building-logs and fire wood; snatching up arms and armor and gathering his few comrades in fighting order at every suspicious .sound; passing from house to house, w i t h the venerable Elder Brewster, to teivl the sick, with the deftness acquired on the battle-field, or t prepare for the burial of the dead toiling with the few able to aid him in land ing and mounting the cannon for the protection of the settlement ; and taking advantage of the first pleasant days t( break ground around his house and plant a few garden-seeds tor pot-herbs -- the sturdy soldier had no leisure moments for his own personal sorrows. He never desponded, and his bluff cheeriness wat better than medicine to many a sick com rade. All this time they were unmolested by Indians. Since the fight between a rov ing band and the exploring party from the ship, before the landing at Plymouth, ther - had been no hostile demonstration. Indiani hovered about, -watching with curiosity and dread the \vork of building the vil- lage, but fearing to come near, and fleeing on the approach of a white man. A superstitious belief was the cause of this terror. Three years before the landing of the Pilgrims a French ship was cast away on Cape Cod. The crew reached land only to meet a fate worse than drowning. The Indians stood on the shore and killed them as they were thrown up by the waves--all but three, whom they made slaves. Two were ransomed by an English explorer; the third was retained in captivity until .loath ended his sufferings. As he lay [lying, lie told the Indians that God was angry with them for their wickedness; that ae would destroy them and give their land to a strange people, who would be clothed, and not live like beasts as they did. They mocked him and derided his prophecy. " It is false," said they. " We are great and powerful. We are not afraid )f the Great Spirit. He cannot kill us. We are too many." But the Frenchman said God was powerful, and though they ivere in number as the sands of Hie, sen or he trees in the forest, ho had many 'ways o destroy them he knew not of, and could kill them all. He was scarcely dead when a dreadful pestilence broke out among them, the like jf which they had never seen. With the 'ailing leaves they fell in great numbers, nd when winter came but a miserable remnant was left of the powerful tribe. Then came the Englishmen. At the first meeting the Indians thought to sweep hem away, and with loud yells shot their arrows at the strangers. But the weapons passed harmlessly by. Then some of the English rircd their matchlocks, but without effect. The Indians were astonished at their adversaries bringing thunder and 'ightning to their aid; but they were not to be driven back by thunder that cracked feebly, and lightning that did not strike. They fired another volley of arrows. Then Miles Standish stepped forward a few paces, rested his musket on its staff and took aim at the chief, who was partially 'liddon by a tree. Tlie shot struck the ln- lian's arm, and with a loud yell of terror he fled, followed by the whole band. Now they remembered the prediction of the Frenchman, and were filled with :lread that these were the people who ivere to possess their land. The medicine- men, or conjurers, of the tribe were called together, and for three days they per- brmed their horrid incantations i n a dark und dismal swamp, cursing the strangers ind calling on their gods and demons to Irivc the intruders from the land. But ,he incantations were in vain, and towards ipring the medicine-men told the chiefs it was the will of the Great Spirit they should be friends with the white men. It was well for the sick and enfeebled icttlers that during their worst weakness he Indians were prevented by "superstitious terror from coming near and discovering their true condition. It was well, too, that when the Indians resolved .o be friends with them, the sick had mostly recovered so far as to be about, hough still feeble. In February Miles Standish was chosen Japtain, and at once set about organizing nto military order all the men fit for duty. The cannon were landed and planted in ';he best places for the protection of the iOwn. The great guns--minions and sakers, carrying from four to six pound shot--were placed on t'.ie hill and commanded the street to the water. The smaller cannon--buses carrying five or tx ounce balls--were placed before the houses of the Governor and Captain. ' Now," said the Captain, " we are ready for the rascals." The work was scarcely :lone when reports came in of the savages. For days they 1'ung around, and one or wo ventured in. At last, one fair warm morning in March, there was a great stir n the settlement. The Indians had appeared in force on a neighboring hill-- Ixty warriors headed by their king, Massasoit. There was hasty buckling on t armor and gathering up of swords and muskets. With trumpet and drum the roops of Captain Miles Standish were ordered into rank. The women and chil- .Iren hid themselves in the houses. But he alarm was unfounded. In accordance with the advice of the medicine-men and he determination of the council, King Massasoit and his warriors had come to make a treaty of peace. So the warlike preparations were converted into a military display in honor of the distinguished visitor. Captain Standish with six musketeers n their breastplates, and shouldering their heavy pieces, escorted the Indian king and twenty of his warriors, some *f whom were clad in skins and others naked, but ;ill painted and oiled, the king being distinguished from the others by a heavy necklace of bone beads. They were marched into an empty house, just completed, and Massasoit was seated oa a green rug, reserved for state occasions. Some of the other Indians were placed on cushions. With trumpet blowing and drum beating, and followed by musketeers, entered Governor Carver, wan and feeble--for a deadly sickness had already laid hold on him--but keeping a stately deportment. He seated himself by the Indian king, upon the rug, kissing his hand to him by way of salute and being in return cm- braced and kissed. Captain Miles Standish ran his eye anxiously along his men, some of whom were so feeble that the heavy breastplate and musket severely taxed their strength to carry. After drinking and eating together, a treaty of friendship and alliance was made, which lasted while those who made it lived. With ceremonies like those with which the meeting was begun it was now ended, and the Inians took their departure, glad enough to get out of the company of the fearful weapons that sent invisible death to any distance, and which they eyed with trembling fear during the whole conference. Towards the middle of March the birds sang sweetly in the woods,--a joyful sound, for it told of the coming spring. iV.t noon came their first experience of an American thunder-storm,--" strong and great claps, but short, but after an hour it rained very sadly till midnight." A few days later every man that could handle a spade was breaking ground to prepare for the first crop. From the Indians they had obtained some corn, and, under the guidance of an Indian, twenty acres were set with this ; six acres morg were sown with barley and peas,--the whole being manured with fish scooped up from the stream. The seed was sown with many prayers, for on the success of that crop depended the fate of the colony. The supply brought from England would have soon been exhausted, but for the reduct'on of their numbers by the pestilence. The game which they expected to kill proved at first very shy, and they were but indifferent hunters. Owing to an unfortunate omission to bring small hooks their success in fishing was equally poor. A failure of the crop, in the possible event of inability to get supplies in time from England, would result in starvation. With the coming of spring the sickness decreased. Of the hundred and one Pilgrims who arrived in Cape Cod harbor in November about half were dead by April. The Mayflower lay in port with but half her crew, the pestilence having treated crew and passengers alike. But now the mortality ceased. The sick and lame recovered, and despondency gave way to hope. Whatever thoughts were indulged in during the height of sickness were now banished. The sails of the Mayflower were hoisted once more, and from his battery on the hill-top Captain Miles Standish gave her a parting salute, as she sailed away with cheering letters for England, but with not a single passenger. The summer months passed quietly by, the colonists busily engaged in building, clearing land, and watching the crops. The peas were a failure. They came up well, blossomed, and then were parched under the fierce July sun. The barley was thin, but moderately thrifty. The corn was strong, green, and promised well. There was reason to hope for a good harvest. In August the peace of the colony was rudely disturbed. Word came that the friendly Indian king, Massasoit, had been driven from his home by a rebel chief named Corbitant, and that the Indian messengers sent by- the Pilgrims had been imprisoned by Corbitant, who threatened them with death. A solemn council -A the colonists was called. Elder Brewster, the leader of the flock pleaded earnestly against bloodshed. He thought an appeal to the consciences of the rebellious Indians would be effective. William Bradford, who had been elected Governor on the death of Carver, hesitated to counsel war, yet doubted the efficacy of Elder Brewster's policy. Each of the members of the council spoke his mind, some coun- selling tliis, some that, but all shrinking from advising warlike action. Then Captain Miles Standish started to his feet in auger. "You arc men of the Bible," said he, "but l a m a man of tho sword. will talk t to these savages through my muskets, and they will then listen quietly to your sermons. Give me a dozen men, and the rest can pray for our sric- :ess whilst we march and fight." Next morning he started out with fourteen men, well armed, in a heavy rain. At night they lost their way, and wet, weary of marching all day in cumbrous armor and carrying heavy arms, they sat down in the woods greatly discouraged. But the trail was again found, and thoy made a sudden attack on the Indian village, capturing or putting to flight ail the rebellious Indians, and from the centre of the village Miles Standish proclaimed the intention of the Pilgrims to reinstate Massasoit, and to protect all those who should prove the friends of the white men. The news of this successful attack ind the proclamation of the dreaded white chief soon spread, and before many days the chiefs of all the surrounding country came iu, professing friendship and asking for treaties of alliance. Under these favorable circumstnnces the first harvest was gathered. With joyful hearts they secured the bountiful crop of Indian corn which had ripened in the fierce heats of August and the warm haze of September. As they looked on the heaped-up stores--the first fruits of the soil of their new home--their hearts welled with thankfulness that the Lord had so mercifully cared for them, and that, though sorely smitten with pestilence, they were now blessed with health, peace, and freedom from the dread of famine. Mindful of the Providence to whom those blessings were due, Governor Bradford proclaimed a solemn Thanksgiving feast, and ordered that preparations should be made for celebrating it with such festivities as were in their power. Four men were dispatched into the woods to shoot wild-fowl,.iuid though the game had been scanty throughout the summer, the four iportsmen returned at night staggering under their burden of turkeys and other wild fowl, great and small, sufficient to provision the whole settlement an entire week. There was rare work among the good wives of the Pilgrims, plucking and dressing the game, pounding corn and baking it, getting out and polishing the tin and pewter table services brought from England and Holland, and scrubbing the wooden trenchers that served the poorer Pilgrims in place of tin or pewter. The roar of one of the great guns on the hill-top announced the commencement of Thanksgiving. Then, in the different dwellings and over fires lit in the open air, began the work of roasting and boiling. The air was before long savory of the steam of turkeys turniflg on strings before the fire, and of smaller birds fizzing n spits or dancing in bubbling pots. There was a rattle of drirns, and every man caught up his musket or fire-lock ind hurried to the house of the Captain, falling into line as he arrived. When all had assembled the sergeant stepped forward, and the men, three abreast, with fire-arms shouldered, marched orderly and silently towards the meeting-house. Behind came Governor Bradford, in his long robe of office, walking gravely, as befitted a governor. On his right hand went the venerable Elder Brewster, in his preacher's cloak, bearing the Bible reverently in his hands. On the Governor's left walked Captain Miles Standish, his heavy armor laid aside for a short cloak, his trusty sword at his side, and a small cane in his hand as a mark of office. Proudly he watched the firm tread, sturdy frames, and serviceable weapons of the little troop before him, and was half regretful that among the subjects for the day's thanksgivings was the blessings of peace with all the tribes about them. It was almost a pity so many good muskets should be used only in shooting wild-fowl. The sermon of Elder Brewster was appropriate to the occasion. Never was he known to preach a better discourse, or a shorter one, though it would be thought very long now, especially if the steam of roasting trikeys tickled the noses of preacher and congregation, as it did then. Tho services over, the procession marched back again, the troop saluted the Governor and were dismissed, and then came in the real business of the day. It was a Thanksgiving dinner, and no mistake about it. To be sure the tables were of the rudest, and there was not much display, nor were there many little delicacies that can often be found now on Thanksgiving tables. But the turkey was there, and so were a number of other birds, great and small, roasted and boiled, and broiled over the embers. There was corn-bread, and several little knicknacks such as the skillful housewives could make up out of the materials at band. Nor were the tables altogether wanting in display. Some families had brought a fe.w household relics from their English homes, and these were set out to do honor to the day of rejoicing. The dinner over and the relics cleared away, the thoughts of the Pilgrims turned to the homes they had left. As the evening closed in, they trod in fancy the green lanes of England or the busy streets of Leyden. They sang the psalms and songs that hat had been sung around their English firesides, and mingled memories of the past with thankfulness for the present and hope for the future. Hark ! An Indian shout, followed by a challenge from one of the guard ! A sharp rattle of a dram, and every man grasped his firelock and rush out in alarm. Nearly a hundred savages were pouring into the village with shonts and cries. There was no occasion for alarm. It was Massasoit and his band, coming in to thank the white men for their assistance and to share their festivities. They brought with them five deer and a good supply of other game, as their contribution to the feast. So the Thanksgiving feasting was continued another day. By daybreak the fires were again set going, and the work of roasting, broiling, and boiling was resumed. This time venison was added to the turkey, and the Pilgrims smacked their lips with delight over this unusual food. Whilst the feast was preparing the Indians performed their dances, startling the white men and frighting the women with their wild yells and fierce gestures. When they rested. Captain Standish called out his troops in full armor ard put them through their military exercises, winding up with the discharge of a volley from their muskets, and a salute from the great cannon on the hill-top and the little cannon before the Governor's door. The crash of the musketry and the roar of the cannon terrified the savages, and they begged the " great Captain that he would not thunder again, lest he should kill them all. On the third day the feasting was re- stirnod, the Indian hunters going out before daybreak, and returning early with game for the day's feast. A council-fire was built, and around it speeches were made and new pledges of friendship exchanged Then with great ceremony Massasoit took leave of the Governor, his friend the great Captain, and the other chief men of the town. Captain Standish, with his troop of musketeers, escorted the Indians a little way out of the town and gave them a parting salute. Thus, with prayers and feasting, with godly psalms and Indian dances, with joyous socgs, roaring cannon, and English shouts mingling cheerily with Indian whoops, was celebrated the First New England Thanksgiving. -- Our Young Fdte.

The Burglar's Alarm. BY HENKY WAJID BEECJIEW. I have one in my house. The battery is snugly hidden in a closet upon the chamber floor. Wires run out from my sleeping-room, and connect with the scuttle in the attic, with the front and rear- windows, and doors in the basement, and cellar stories, and with every window that can be reached by a prowling, climbing thief. I said that the wires run out from my sleeping-room--say, rather, that they all run in there. They are so many post roads along which bad news is to travel. For after the " alarm" is set, the opening of any window, door, or scuttle, starts off a bell, against which a lever hammer plays with an incredible fury. One may have .ieard fire bells, and ship's bells, and church bells, and engine bells, and breakfast bells, and college bells--first bells, socond bells, and last bells--Imt he might as well have heard nothing at all, if he "las never heard my Burglar Alarm go off n the night. My experiences may amuse others more than they did me. Among the first feats which it performed, soon after it was rected, was to ring out an unexpected greeting to a caller. The machine had been set for the night. It was, to bo sure, early, not yet ten o'clock, but we were to be off on an early trip in the morning. A neighbor rung the bell--a moment's rrand. The girl opened the front door. Away went the alarm, as if H were shout- 'ng. Burglar! burglar! burglar! at the ·ate of five hundred times in a minute. The visitor stood astonished; the girl :nore so, and I--right alongside of the outrageous clatter, forgot to " tuTi off' the attachment," and so stop the bell--commenced shouting at the head of .the stairs, " Shut that door! shut that door! Will you shut that door?" The neighbor tstoniahed at such a reception, stepped tastily back, as if very much ashamed of Having thrown the family into such commotion, and the door was shut, and the bell also at that time " shut up." " Bridget," says the Chief of Staff one evening to her servant, " it is time to close :verything below and go to bed. You know how hard it is, Bridget, for yon to jet up mornings." " Yes, ma'am ; we --The Haytien currency has depreciated tili pork is quoted at $50,000 per barrel in that, country. we are just going up stairs "Will you see that every thing is fast, Bridget ; the furnace arranged ? Cook has put her bread in sponge ?" " Yes, ma'am; we arc just ready." Now, OJG of the glories of a burglar ilarm arc its gifts of ward and discipline. After it is set, at night, no door or window can open without being uproariously reported in the mistress' bed-room. The .ittle box screwed against the wall, containing the apparatus and the bell, which is a very virago's tongue, is a perfect spinster in the matter of courting and cooing, und all the little honeyed interviews which transform the area and basement door, in he Imagination of Bridget, into bowers of honeysuckle and jessamins. Ah! tlioft luent tongues from the green isle ! What exquisite pleasure it must be to be courted by a genial, whole-souled Irishman ! Our phlegmatic Sexon temperament docs well or married life. It lasts well. It takes several years for some people to get iindled, so as to get up a wedding heat. The Saxon courtship is grave and serious. It is a matter of consideration. I have known a proposal of love to be stated like a thesis, and calmly argued for or against with far less warmth than Luther* would have felt in debating a thesis. Indeed, many courtships are like attempts at kindling fires with green wood. Of course a fellow has to go down upon his knees ; a few starving coals are heaped together, a mere spark dances in and out upon the inhospitable charcoal, and disappears one side as tiist as it appears on the other. But by all manner of shav- ngs and bits of paper -- mere trinkets, as it were, and billet-doux -- a slight flame is got up, which strives with doubtful prospect to convert the smoke into blaze. The bellows are called in. The fire is fairly driven up to its work. The green sticks begin to si/.zle at either end ; and though, at last, when heat triumphs the fire is large and lasting, the poor fellow that kindled it had to work for it. Not such is Irish fire. A spark on tinder, a coal upon powder, a torch thrown do»vn upon the dry grass of an autumnal prairie. Il is touch and go. Heavens ! what a blaze ! I don't wonder. The Irish tongue was made for eloquence. It rolls as easily along as a rollicking brook through a meadow of flowers. It hums as sweetly as a whole hive of bees, each one with his thighs la('en with honey. But melhinks I am getting a little off from my story. After all Bridget's fair words to the Chief of Staff, there was her cousin -- that is the usual name -- at the very time sitting chirp in the kitchen but ready to slip in or out, up or down, if the mistress of the house should take it into her head to see things right, down stairs, with her own eyes. But no ; Bridget was that one truly honest Irish girl that everybody or everybody's neighbor has, that will not lie or steal. To bed we all went ; that is, the aristo crats of the family. Is there an3'thing so luxurious as the moment that you are sinking into slumber? I have often wished that I could keep awake to know how happy I was when just asleep. But so it is. Coarse enjoyment you are conscious of; but joys the most spirittifUe are those which' vanish in the thrill which they make. Who has not, when asleep, had unrolled before him the only opportunity which vainly he had sought in waking-the hour, the person, the joyful certainty but just as the word was trembling on the lip, you wake. How hateful is the ,waking out of imaginary bliss into dul reality ! As I was saying, I h;vl just reached the bounds of Elysium ; it;- fragrant d e w ; were falling upon me as upon some rotum" sunflower, when -- " f u r y and t h u n d e r -what's the matter now V" That bell was raging ns if fifty thousand burglars were at the other end. What is i t ? I rush t( the dial, turn the test keys to see what has broke loose. It is the front basemen' door ! Of course it is. There is Bridgel and her cousin, standing sweetly there quite unconscious, in the joy of that whicl was going on at that end of the wire, o: the roaring row that was going on at the other. We rushed to the head of the stairs, for getting, of course, to turn off the bell which went on clamoring with admirab wind and bottom, and only after shouting and running down to the head ofthenex pair of stairs, could we make Bridget shu the door. As she ascended to her room the Chief of Staff, in a decisive way -" Bridget." " Ma'am ?" as innocent as a dove. " Bridget, I thought you were abed What was the door open for?" " Indeed, ma'am, it took me longer ti take care of the fire than usual, and jist a I was coming up I thought I sniellei something. Mebbe, says I, there's fire ir the ashes in the arcar. Sure enough ma'am, when I opened the door there w sparks enough." " Oh," says the appeased Chief, " did you put them out and make all safe ?" " Yes, ma'am, you may be sure I did,' adding in an under tone as she went up stairs, "and shut the door after him." " Bridget is a treasure," said the Chief " I always feel safe when she's about. I'm always bound to say a good word forBrid get, if she is Irish." " At any rate," said I, " one is glad to see that a door can't be opened without his knowing it." Wow we are early risers at our house We seldom lie abed after six, even in win ter, and of course the giris must be up for early breakfast, betimes. And yet while we are abed, how grateful are the morning slumbers ! It is in the later hours of the night, if at all, that a healthy man dreams ; ana if he is a member of the temperance society, and, like Mr. Parton never smokes nor takes late suppers, his dreams will be like the visit of faries. We are not enough grateful for dreams. Dreams are a kind of foretaste of the dis embodied state. There is the most charm ing freedom. We move without walking. W- sec impossible things without wonder, We. fly in the air, and walk upon the vvuter, mid ereer) like flies along the ceiling, and talk with birds and beasts. VYe find hats full of gold in the road, and gar dens full of peaches, and nightingales sing ·o us, as w.e situador the dropping petals f the rose of jesaniine, and wMSper, just as the silver edge of moonlight tips, etc., ~tc. Dreams therefore are the relief of prosaic life. They are a Jsoft and gentle mockery of the cares and perplexities of our day-time life. Who would not go far ;o see such things, awake, as every morn- ng he may lie still and sec in his dreams? Dreams ar^ proof that things which are not are mightier than things' which are.

Shuffling on my pantaloons, and uspenders buttoned, with arms and mu- itions of war, I rush to the entry to ce^Bri'dget sweeping out the hall and to earn that I had forgot to wind up the ilock attachment to the alarm, by-which ngenious contrivance the servants can ipen any door after live in the morning rithoul starting the alarm. 1 was always forgetting to turn off the larm. Some one rings at midnight. I tut my head out the front chamber win- low to say who's there; but the first inch hat the sash goes up, off goes the alarm. Hang that bell; mother, do stop it." But all these ore inere trifles to the way was served oil two occasions. In dead f night, without just reason in magne- ism or electricity, the alarm started oft', ind I starterl, too. Testing it, I sound the pen place, and repaired to it prepared for conflict. But all was still. The windows ast, the doors fast--mice scampered away is I came, showing that nothing had happened there to alarm them. Nothing had reen opened. That alarm had got asleep, ind dreamed that burglars were about, %nd went on" at them.! Dogs often hunt in dreams, and wake up barking. Burglar alarms do the same thing. The fact is, I never had a quiet night after I got the ilarm in my chamber. For I soon found hat, while it, had a trick of going oil' in u find of soliloquy, whon every t h i n g wtis ight shut, so it \viis dumb as a turtle, A'hcu curtain of the doors were wide spen, keeping u p a sort of average of fidelity without being particular as to circumstances. The way I have bounced out of bed, the ferocious state of mind nto which I have been thrown, prepared o dispute possession wiUi murdering robbers, tlie fool's errands I have been sciii. .ipon, have satisfied mo that my instrument should bu culled an "Owner's A.larin." Burglars an; tlic only parties that have happy time. The householder it is that s driven crazy with mldniglr alarms. I have let my battery dry up, for the more 1 had tho ronrcrn put to rights, the worse 'I, got. E i t h e r it or I had to leave tlic louse. My health was good, but wouldn't land so much broken rest, as the nursery hath it. For two years I hnve had peace. Nobtlrghirs have come near me, or else hey have heard what luck that fellow iad who once broke into my house, and ;'ound all my sermons exposed to his hand, ind pass on w i t h haste. But if ever one has a disease of lethargy, or is losing health by over sleep, or s quite too nnich at case in bed, or has an nemy whose life he would indduousljr ,ve:tr out without breaking the law, let him procure a Burglar's Alarm to be put ip in their respective houses'. It will cure the one and kill the othei ! My word "or it. HOME, FARM ASD HARDEN. --Some one calculates that an acre of .jnekwheat yields fourteen pounds of ioney daily. -- Kettles may be cleansed of onion and other odors, by dissolving a teaspoonfull ol pearlash or saleratus in water, and ivashing then;. --It is said that hair removed by fevers and other sickness may be made to grow by washing the scalp w i t h a strong decoction of snge leaves once or twiee a day. --Sugar Biscuit.--One quart of milk ; three-quarters of a pound of butter, one luarter pound of sugar, rather more than a tea-cup of home made yeast; set to rise in the evening. To be mixed not too stiffly. --Squeaking boots or shoes are a great annoyance, especially in entering a sick room, or a church after the service has commenced ; the remedy i.i, to boil linseet" oil and saturate the soles with the same. --Graham Bread.--Take the unbolter flour of w h e a t , wet it with lukewarm water add salt and yeast, knead iu enough more of this flour to make it stiff, aJd a little molasses, a n d when risen, bake in medium sized loaves. --Blistered Hands and Feet.--The speed iest remedy is to light a tallow candle and let the melted tallow drop in cold water, then mix t h e tallow with strong spirits and rub it thoroughly into the palms am" soles. This is both a preventive and euro tive. --The most easily digested articles o food as yet k n o w n are sweet apples baked, cold raw cabbage sliced in vinegar, and boiled rice ; the most indigestible ari suet, boiled cabbage and pork ; the forme require an hour, the latter five. Every farm should have one good orch ard, the size varying according to the siz of the farm, aud this orchard should con tain a choice assortment of all the leading fruits. The fanner who to-day has on hi place a thrifty, middle-tigtid orchard should not wait until those trees begin U fail before hu sets out another one, bu should have one started and growing. --One of the principal reasons why sc few persons succeed in making their tube roses bloom in summer is that they keep them too cool during winter. They should be placed in a warm room, where the temperature is seldom below i- 1 ) 0 , for wher the bulbs are kept in a cool place th centre or undeveloped flower-stem is verj liable to decay, although the outside o the bulb w i l l remain sound. When tli roots are taken up in autumn, all th leaves should be removed, and then spruit ·the bulbs where they will become thoroughly dry before putting away for win ter.--JJaart/i nnd Home. --Silas Brown says that twenty-tiv' years ago he dipped shingles in a larg kettle of limu wash to which salt had been added, and the whole kept boiling. A fcv of Uie shingles were dipped in all over n a time, long enough to soak them well, an then thrown aside to dry. In a short tim all the shingles wore thus prepared. A though what arc termed " sap shingles, they have lasted twenty-five years, " am may do so for years to couu 1 ." Sovurr experiments .of a similar character hav been made since, with very successful re suits.--Albany Cultivator. --Many farmers throw away all of th.ej potato-stalks. We have seen tons of thi material piled up in the corner of th fences, or thrown into some hole or out-o the-way place. The stems and leaves o the potato are very valuable for manure and they should never be wasted, bu drawn to tho barn-yard, or placed in compost-heap. According to the experiments of Mr. Sprengel, there are fou pounds of valuable mineral substances beneficial to vegetation, in every hundrei pounds of dried potato stems and leaves Boussegault found twenty-three pound of nitrogen in a thousand pounds o dry potato-stems. As nitrogen is one o the most valuable manuring agents, 1'ttrmcr can afi'ord to waste even a sinal amount.--Hearth and Home. --A sweet potato grower in Southern Illinois declares that sweet potatoes will keep in bulk. He has kept 700 bushels in one pile. He says : The potatoes shoulc" be dug before the vines are injured bj frost, and sun them until dry and warm enough to keep out-frost, and should have a clajr floor. Throw your potatoes on the floor in a pile and line between them and the wall with fine hay or flax straw. The deeper and larger the pile the better Cover with the same material. Cover the hay or flax straw with clay; an inch 01 two is sufficient in this climate, leave an air hole in the top, or t if tlie pile is large two or three will be required to let on the steam; keep them warm enough t sprout a littlu. In damp, Warm days open a, window and door in day-time. Cover «o)ji after they are put. in the cellar. Iteceipt for Oaring Meat.--To ine gallon of water, t»ke lj| Ibs. of salt, £ Ifc. of sugar, % oz. saltpetre, % oz. pot- !sh/ In this ratio the pickle to be in- reased to any quantity desired. Let these e boiled together, until all the 0lit/from he sugar rises to the top and is skimmed ff. Then throw it into a tub to oool, and vhcn cold..pourit over-your beef or pork, o remain the usual time, say four or live eeks. The meat must be well covered ith pickte; and should not be put down 'or at'least two diiya after, killing, during vhich time it should be slightly sprinkled with powdered saltpetre, ·which removes ill the surface blood, c., leaving the meat Tcsh and clean. Some omit boiling the icicle, and find it to answer well; though Be operation of boiling purifies the pickle y throwing off the dirt always to be ound in bait and sugar. If this receipt is properly tried it will ever be abandoned. There is none that urpass it, if so good.--Germantown Tde- ·rapJi. --The Suit Lake City News of the 28th IL has the following in relation to the ro- cnt accident on the Union Pacific Rail- oad : " Our informant was on an express train i-aV-'eling westward, about two miles this ide of Hviinstnn, yesterday morning be- Avet'ii 10 ami 11 o'clock, when tlie fore tvheels of the locomotive ran off the track, igiiiils were made to the train, which ,vas known to be behind ; but they were lot perceived until the twn trains were v i l h i n half a mile of each other. The *r;ule of the road in thai locality is about ifxty-five feet- to the- mile, and, although he engineer of the emigrant train, as soon s he observed the obstruction 011 tho line, eversed the wheels of the engine, he was unable to check the progress of the train o as to prevent a collision. When the wheels of the express train ran off the live, engine No. 82, which was on a side rack, immediately rendered what itssirft- nice it could, the engine being attached to he rear of the express train, in rder, if possible, to get it on the ine. again. The engineer of this locomotive, seeing the emigrant train approaching at a speed that could not bo :l)ceked, detached bis engine from the back f the express train, and opening tho hrottle, heroically set off to meet the emigrant t r a i n , in order to break the shock. This IK; accomplished to some extent, his engine being severely damaged by the col lisiciii. Had it not been for this act of hiring,-it is presumed that the accident would have been of much greater magni- il'de. As it was, there were three killed iiid two badly wounded. LUMJBJBIR.
