A'waggish dirkey, who was waiting at the table at the Princes ball In Montreal, was beset by a bevy of young ladies from the glass from which royalty bad drank. They were shown the glass, and then enquired the veiv place which bis royal lips had touched. This was also shown, when the girls applied their owncleft rosebuds to tbe glass at the designated plaoe.

In 1835 he was elected tn the State Legislature, in 1836, he was defeated on aceount of Lis advocacy of internal improvements, but was again elected in 1837- lie was a member of the Whig Convention which ominated Ilarrison, and in 1840 was e-lected from LexingtOB, Fayette county, to the-Legislature. In l84l, he was defeated, owing to his 'Opinions on tho slavery quesfc'on. The improved jury and common sell 3ol system of Kentucky are in a l.irse measure due to his efforts. In 18-14 he -denounced tbe Texas annexation scheme, as designed for the extension of slavery.

On June 3d, 1815, he issued the True American, devoted to the extinguishment of slavery in his native State. The opposition to tho power was violent, and in the August following, while Mr. Clay whs sick, his press was seized by a mob, and sent to Cincinnati. lie was threatened by public resolution with assassination, bu; upon his recovery he revived his paper, printing it at Cincinnati and publishing it at Lexington.

i Ventilate the Churches and, Schools, i We Imve poiated out ia our last number the necessity of ventilating the shop. Those observations anply not only to the tra'lestnaiUs snap, lmt also to the workshop ov iUotory. The fearful decadence ofthe health of such towns as Jlanehcstei', Old ham an'ISheffield, which arc in tvnth but congregations of workshops, is notorious the -pale, wan faces of the dwdllers there too truly toll tho want of pure; clean, fresh air. now from' the' private shop to public" institutions, "we are compelled toadinit the same ralieal fault1 the want of; thaf" element which is the breath of lrfe.b In the churches, schools, an I assemblies, people who go there sutler more or less from this evil. It is proverbial how persons, young and' old, suffer from colds, bronchitis, and influenza, all of which are said to be caught.

when they return from some public place of assembly. The question naturally arises, how is this? The answer is that it is caused by the sudden chaugo which the bo ly undergoes in passing from heatel, impure air to that of a natural temperature, containing also its proper proportion of elements. Man 'requires for his health one gallon of air every minute of his life. The indi i Ilias of a church congregation are rarely, if ever, supplied with a quarter of that quantity. Only at the cathedrals is the air space in proportion to the worshippers.

A man of large lungs inhales about twenty-five cubic inches of air at each respiration he breathes eleven times a minute, and thus requires nine aud a half cubic lcet of air every hour. Now, when there arc a thousand persons under one roof (some of the metropolitan churches and chapels contain two thousand live hundred persons), for a couple of hours, it is evident that twenty thousand cubic feet of air are required to supply that which is necessary for existence to those thousand persons in a pure atmosphere, so of course, a much larger quantity than that is required in order that a current 6an ie established to remove the matter of exhalation. 1 The evils of vitiated air arc also to be more guarded against, because persons can live in it without being aware of its danger, so far as their sensations aro coneern-bd. When we enter a crowded assembly on a cold; day, tho "air is at first repulsive and oppressive, but these sensations gradually disappear, and then we breathe freely and are unconscious of the quality of the air. Science, however, reveals the tact that the system sinks in action to meet the conditions of the impure air, but it does bo at the expense of having the vital functions gradually depressed, and when this is continued, disease follows.

No disease can be thoroughly cured, when there is a want of ventilation. It is related that illness continued in a family, until a pane, of glass was accidentally broken, and then it- ceased the window not being repaired, a plentiful supply of fresh air was admitted. The of building sepulchral vaults under the churches was fraught with the greatest evil to tho health of those, who went into the edifice for sacred purposes. But, with few 'exceptions, it is interdicted by the legislature still agreatdeai has to be done. Nearly all the churcjhes in the empire require some artificial means of ventilation to render them physically fit receptacles for the body during a prolonged service.

The Sunday schools also, as a general rule, are very ill ventilated, aud in the second hour the lessons are far worse rendered than in the first, solely arising from a semi-lethargic feeling that comes over the pupil breathing a carbonic air, to which lie has already done duty, and been inhaled by others several times. However it is to be regret- cd, it is yet true, that people will sometimes sleep during the aennon. Now, the minister must not be twitted with this, for with the oratory of a Jeremy Taylor, or a Til-lotsou, "people could not be kept awake in an atmosphere charged with carbonic gas- the emanations of a thousand listeners. The church wardens 7 should ventilate the churches, and see that the congre- 1 gations havesnmeient air for breathing: if the people go to slekp. tho church wardens are more to blame than the preacher.

Soptemius Eiesse. Seed Corn, i Now is the time to save it. Go through the field before you harvest the crop, and select the largest, best.most forward ears, and as far as practicable taka the best of two from stocks bearing duplicates.

The following, given by one of our exchanges as a new and easy method of raising fruit trees, is worthy of attention Instead of making use of a graft a slip is taken from an apple tree for instance and planted in a potato so that a couple of inches of the slip remains visible. It 'soon takes root, develops itself, and finally becomes a handsome tree, bearing fine fruit.

Bohemi, a French gardener, is said to have discovered tho method. Cin Gazette keep potatoes from rotting, such as dusting with powdered lime, A thorough drying in the sun and air, and then storing in a cool, but dry cellar, is tho best means we know of. If disposed to rot, and buried in the ground w-hen damp, their loss is almost certain, as the moisture, of the sod favors rotting, and there is no opportunity to watch them and select out those that are decaying, and the whole lot soon becomes a rotten mass. We are the first we think to speak of the potato ret the present season, and had watched its insidious attack and progress for some time previous to making the announcement; we might raise an unnecessary alarm. 1 Now tho papers in al parts of the coun-' try are complaining of the ravages of the disease.

In Ireland the greatest fears are entertained, lest the sad scenes cf former years should be repeated, in view of tho almost total destruction of the potato crop which seems inevitable." In England too thero is much complaint. The Phytoco-res, which some have supposed caused the rot, have been very numerous the present season, and we have counted twenty and thirty on a single plant. In our potato grounds the tops are entirely dead or dying. The tubers are' mt rotten, but are heavy and hardly fit to be eaten." All varieties seem to be affected. The only kinds which are not seriously injured out of forty sorts, aro the York Regent, and the Lapstone Kidney, two varieties imported from England.

Nails in Fruit. Trees.

A singular fact and one worthy to be re-, corded, was mentioned to us a few days since by Mr. Alexander Duke, of Albermarlo. lie stated that while op a jisit to a neighbor, h's attention wis called to a large peach orchard, every tree of which was totally destroyed by the ravages of the worm with the exception qt three, and these were the most thrifty and flourishing peach trees be cvl-i saw. 'ihe only cause for the superiority, known to tho host, was an experiment male in consequence of observing that those parts of worm eaten timber into which nails had been driven were generally sound. AVhcn his trees were about a year oi he drove a ten penny nail through the body as near the ground "as possible; while the balance of the orchard had generally failed, and finally ydeldei altogether to the ravages of the worms, these three trees, selected at iandom, treated precisely in the same manner with the exception of nailing, had always been healthy, furnishing him at the very period with the greatest profusion of the most luscious It is supposed that the salt ot iron afforded by the nails is offensive to tho worm, while it is harmless, perhaps to the tree.

A chemical writer on the subject, says The oxydation or rusting ol the iron by the sap, evolves ammonia, which as the sap rises, will of course impregnate every particle of the foliage, and prove too severe a dose for the dilicatu palate of intruding insects. The writer recommends driving half a dozen nails into the trunk. Several experiments of the bind have resulted successfully. Ex. To Promote Fertility Fruit Trees.

Every orciiardist must have observed that some fruit trees of superior, quality, and of luxuriant growth, are yet slow in coming into a beating state, and are afterwards inconsistent. is the case especially with tho pear tree. Let us note down some of the methods proposed for remedying this evil: An-, abundant and rapid flow of sap teucls to the growth of new wood and leaves, rather than to the formation of fruit buds. Whatever checks this flow will excite the production of flower bads. For example, select a vigorous evergreen which has thus far shown no cones, and transplant it, and next year it will be covered with seed vessels.

So it is often with fault frees. The Another Mystery Explained. The Troy N. Y. Times says that about three years ago a young woman named Catharine employed ia one of the collar factories of the oity a good looking, intelligent and spirited girl disap-penred from her homo.

She left in the early evening, saying "she was going to a ball, and did not return. Her clothing was all left behind uncalled for. Diligent inquiries were made. She had been seen at the ball until after midnight, but no one knew when she left for home, or in whose company. An advertisement published in the Times produoed no answer Time passed, and the minds of "her relatives settled upon the conclusion that she must have abandoned home eloping, perhaps, in company with some seducer perhaps going off alone, to seek excitement and amusement in a vortex of dissipation elsewhere.

conclusion was favored by her known repugnance to her employment here and her love of display and festivities. I 1 But, within a few days, the almost banished subject has been revived by the receipt of an anonymous letter which conveys the startling announcement that she was murdered that, on leaving the ball, in company with a young man, they proceeded together to a block above, and took a carriage; -after driving a short distance three fellows got into the carriage that instead of taking the girl home, took the Albany 'road, when she remonstrated; they stifled her voice by placing a shawl over her head that, after perpetrating horriblo outrages, the ruffins killed Catharine by strangling her, and threw her into Island Creek below Albany her clothing, with the exception of the under garments, being destroyed, and that tbe body was found three or four weeks after the crime, near Hudson, but being in such a condition as not to be recognized, was buried by the coroner. The writer gives the names of two men who arc now in the State Prison, as beiDg parties to the crime says the driver, who was in complicity and equally guilty with the others, died six months ago of deleri-um tremens, the two other assassins are still living-iono in, Troy and the other in Albany.
