i f i r r" .If i ft .1 -PLOWING AND MANURING. Soila arc bo differently constituted and lo cated, and present so many pccularities of their own, that only a few rules are of general ap plication. That a gradual deepening of the soil ia highly beneficial to crops, is a well set tled principle. Cut even this mn.4 be varied, according to the manner in which the manure is to be applied ; so that it seems necessary that each shall experiment for himself on his own land. Some most exemplary farmers spread green dressing upon the sward and turn it under from six to ten inches, and say they obtain fine crops of corn from the process, while others declared that they have tried it with an utter want of success. Now it would seem that each one might settle this question for him self, by treating the same kind and amount of manure, first by plowing under, and second by first plowing, and then reading the ma nure and working it down two or live inches by the plow, cultivator, horso-hoe or harrow....

FROM EUROPE. AREIVAL CI" THE EUROPE. New Yohk, June 30, P. SI. The royal mail steamship Europe, with Liverpool dates to the 20th ult., arrived last evening at 2sew Jersey. The English transport ship Europe had been destrovedhy fire at sea. Twenty lives -were lost. The Ru-ssians were collecting a lare force in Finland, apparently for the purpose of threatening Sweden and Norway. Great excitement prevailed at Berlin, on the an nouncement that tiie Russians had changed their head-quarters to Jassy. Another account says that the Russians had evacuated Jassy. Lord John Ruusi-ll has been unanimously re flected to the Pritish Parliament. The conference but ween the Emperor of Austria and t'ne King of Fruiu Las resulted satisfactorily to the allied powers. Prussia will send an envoy to St. Petersburg to support the summons already despatched thither Ly Austria. Silistria still liolds out against Russia.

He will do you a kind ness without expecting a return by way of com penBation it is not so with every body. He is usually more honest and sincere, less dispo sed to deal in low and underhanded cunning, than many I could name. He give to society its best support its firmest pillar that sup ports the edifice of government ; he is the lord of nature.

t: I " 3QgrimItarol. Practical Hints abost keeping Milk from Souring:. Milk is a compound, made up of "a mixture of cil (butter,) sugar, caseine (courd) and water. If allowed to btand still, the oily matter will rise to the top in the form of cream. There is a little free alkali (soda) in the water of all sweet milk, and without this 6oda the water will not have the po wer to keep the caseine or curd disolved. The su gar of milk is also dissolved, ia the water. If the sugar can get access to air it is const auly inclin ed to change to an acid, (lactic acid) just as sweet ened water changes to vinegar when exposed to air, and we can see just why milt curdles, and how It may be kept sweet. "We all know that acids destroy or neutralize the effects of alkalies, (such as soda, potash, lime, ic) As before stated, when the milk is new, there is some free soda in it, hut when some acid is formed from the milk sugar, this acid neutralizes the so da, and the water without the soda cannot diss...

Infidels have objected to the size of the ark, tod kaye asserted that it is quite absurd to guppose that ever there could be a vessel con structed large enough to hold all the crea tures which must have been placed La it, with lufficieot food it may be for six or twelve months water for the fishes, and so on. Now, we will take the dimensions of the ark from the record of Moses, and calculate them 9U the lowest possible scale. There are two "efioitions of a cubit; one that is eighteen in hes, the other that is one foot and eight in hes. We will take it only as the lowest, loses states that the ark was three hundred jubits long; this would make it four hundred and fifty feet long, or about the length of est. Paul's Cathedral, London. The breadth he states to be fifty cubits, we then have it sev enty-five in breadth. lie states it to be thirty cubits high; so that it was forty-five in heigh th.
