Preserving Butter.—The farmers in the parish of TJdney, in the county of Aberdeen, practice the Mlowing 1 method of curing- their butler, which gives il a great superiority above that of their neighbor*: Take two parts of the best common salt, one part of sugar, one part of saltpetre; head them up together, and blend the whole; completely ; take one ounce of tins composition for sixteen ounces of butter, work it into the mass, and close it up for use. The bulter cured wilh this mixture appears of a rich und marrowy consistence, and fine color, and never acquires a brittle hardness, nor tastes s-ill.— Dr. Andcraon says, " I have lu<$ bulter cured wilh tJic abtnc composition, that has kept three yoars, and it wjs as sweet as at the fir.-t." But it must be noted, that butler thus cured rcqurics to stand three weeks or o month before il is begun to be used ; if it be sooner opened the salts arc not sufficiently blended with it; and sometime* llic coolness of the nitre will then...

Wondemfui. "Discover v.-—Dr. Silvester, an Italian by birth, and an eminent chemist, has discovered a mode of hardening the human bjdv to the consistency of stone or solid marble, which he is about to exhibit in London. His specimens have created great astonishment. One was lhc head of a lady, wilh the hair parted and dressed, rctuing iu flexible propcnttilics and colors, although tlic surface from which it grew resembled stone—somewhat like a wax model; also a chifd'i head, plump and dimpled a< in life, and a louguc petrified as il it had never uttered .i sound. Tiic peirilying process is said to be simple nnd cheap. A bnquct of choice flowers—the juice first cxtrncted by a pntuin itic process—preserved their natural colors, hut were as imrd and as ripid ns if some cunning workman hud ecrved them finm Persian marble; for not only llie leaves tind pHals were rendered btonc-ltkc, but the minute hair formed btcms were rendered coraline.
