It is stated in a Constantinople letter in the Moniteur de VArm.ee, that the fortifications of Kara are to be re-established, and that it is to be made a fortified place of the first order. Works are also to be undertaken to complete the fortifications of Erzeroum and Van. These three places belong to Turkish Armenia, and form the line of defence of the Asiatic frontiers of the empire on the side of Persia and of the Russian possessions. • " It is positively stated," says the Pays, ** that the ports of Reni, Ismail, and Kilia, situated on the Danube, and restored to Moldavia in virtue of the treaty of Paris, are about to be declared free ports. These places, before they were in- possession of Russia, enjoyed the most extensive commercial franchi...

_ftf THti> <w _ftuKPft Ml l|)i _Jj/_aJulvp How Coffee came to be Used. It is somewhat singular to trace the manner in which arose the use of the common beverage of coffee, without which, few persons, in any half or wholly civilized country in the world, now make a breakfast. At the time Columbus discovered America, it had never been known or used. It only grew-in Arabia and Upper Ethiopia. The discovery of its use as a beverage, is ascribed to the superior of a monastery, in Arabia, who, desirous of preventing the monks from sleeping afc their nocturnal services, made them drink the infusion of coffee upon the report of shepherds, who observed that their flocks were more lively after browsing on the fruit of that plant. Its reputation spread through the adjacent countries, and in about two hundred years it had reached Paris. A single plant brought there in 17M, became the parent stock of all the French cofi'ee plantations in the West Indies. The Dutch introduce...

lor the _Presbyterian Banner and Advocate. Bible narratives—3_fo. 13. NOAH'S CUHSB AND BX.ESSING.—GEII. IX : 25—27 God often magnifies his mercy, by briucing good out of the evil done by man. Thus, Joseph, sold as a slave by eruel hearted brothers, by that very step was enabled to rise to be second ruler m Egypt, and to be a savior to his father's house. Thus, the fall of man prepared tbe "way for the wonderful scheme of redemption", by which God is more glorified than by creating a universe. So here, the sin of _Nuah over his wine cup became the oceasioa of the announcement of the leading facts of the religious and political histoi'y of the human race for ages. The good, however, which God brings out of the evil, does neither escuse the criminal} nor even palliate the guilt of Ms sin. Noah, perhaps a century after the flood, " became drunken; end he was uncovered in Ms tent." Canaan, his youngest grandson, who h,ad now come to years of moral accountability, was perhaps guil...

Guano.—It may not be as generally known as it should be, that great danger may be incurred by the reckless handling of guano. We understand that cases have occurred of persons having cuts upen their fingers, who, in handling this manure, have received a deadly poison into the system. The guano contains an organic element, which is just as certain to operate against life, if it once reaches the blood, as the corruption of a body that gets into a wound upon the person of the dissector. Farmers should be aware of this fact, and be dautious. The Aeration of the Soil.—This is one of the mos.timportant principles involved in hoeing. It is an undoubted fact " that the roots increase their fibres every time the earth is stirred about them," and consequently the plants themselves grow the faster, providing, of course, fair judgment is exercised in directing the operation. This manifest advantage can only be rightly attriMited to the supply of food thus _communieaffid to _tae plants by...

His father asked him it' the lasfc book he had given him was worn out. " Oh, no, sir," said Jeremiah, " but I have read all the sense out of it." He meant to say, that he had read it thoroughly, and had made himself master of all the ideas it contained. That is the right way to read, in order to profit by reading. By reading in that way, Jeremiah Evarts made great improvement , and became one of the wisest and most useful men our country has produced.
