FORTHEFARMER lion to Fallen Chickens. It is hopeless, says the London Gard ener, to attempt to fatten thein while they are at liberty. They must be put in a proper coop, and this, like most other poultry appurtenances, need not be expen sive. To fatten twelve fowls, a coop may be three feet long, eighteen inches high, and eighteen inches deep, made entirely of bars. No part of it solid neither top, Bides, nor bottom. Discretion must be used according to the sizes of the chick ens put up. They do not want room; in deed, the closer they are the better pro vided they can all stand up at the same time. Care must be taken to put such as have been accustomed to be together, or they will fight. If one is quarrelsome, it is better to remove it at once ; as, like oth er bad examples, it soon finds imitators. A diseased chicken should not be put off. The food should be ground oats, and may either be put in a trough, or on a flat board runuing along the front of the coop. It may be mixed with ...

FORTHE FARMER. To rreventllalN, 31 ice, &c, from Working In the Granary. These live pests are a great eye sore to nil farmers and grain dealers, aud a little care and trouble will keep theru away, and at the same time the remedy will be a ben efit to most kinds of coarse grain. For the benefit of those who would like to keep grain all summer, or a year, I will, in a brief manner, give the course to pur sue, that the loss by these little thieves may be comparitively small. After the grain is in the bin and made level and smooth, put on the top about four quarts of fresh slaked lime j let this be spread evenly over the graiu. This will keep out ruts and mice in a bin that contains one hundred bushels. This lime must be slaked so that it looks like flour fresh from the miller's bolt. If the lime is left upon the surface of the grain, the rats and mice will not skip and play there a pwut deal before they will have to sneeze some ; and further than this, there is always enough grease...

It is well known to our readers, that, in the year 1845, Sir John Franklin was sent out by the British Government, to search for the Northwest Passage to the Pacific Ocean. He had under his com mand two ships, the Erebus and Terror, and his officers and men numbered 188 persons. The expedition not returning within a reasonable time, fears were en tertained that it was lost, and several other expeditions have at different times been sent out to search for it. Two of these, we believe, went out under the auspices of the American Government ; and all who have read the grahphic record left by the lamented Elisha Kent Kane, are familiar with the details of the suff erings which he and his men were called upon to endure in the search. All these expeditions returning without any defi nite intelligence as to the fate of the Erebus...

Prying auJ preserving apples is now in nrder, and ve advise those who have a supply of this fruit, which cannot be mar keted, to dry as many as possible. There will be a demand for them, not only in cities and villages, and in new sectious of the country where bearing trees ate not yet secured, but also in many localities where the crop has failed. Remember that it pays tr. prepare and dry the fruit carefully. Clean, well-pared, well-cored, and carefully dried apples sell for double the price of those poorly prepared. Two hhillings worth of time and care in prepa ring a bushel, will not unfreiicntly add a dollar, or more, to its marketable value. Apples may be quickly dried by shaving them wholly into thin parings, on any common parer, and spreading them upon plates or earthenware dishes to dry. "Ap ple leather," as it is sometimes called, is a convenient article. It is made by pre paring the fruit as if for sauce, and then, af...

O'er sheufir.g children flies, That light October wind, And, kissing cheeks and eyes, He leaves t'.iir merry cries, Fur behind.
