Fast-Growing Pork. The Jtfew-England Farpier says.: "We do not work our hogs ,- either ,in harness- or on the manure heaps. When they have taken their meals, and what exercise they please, they _Retire to a_,dry, roomy bed, lie down and grow, and make a business of it. An _, Irishman can - over-haul the manure heap much- cheaper than the hogs can. We slaughtered swine last Fall, made from pigs that" weighed less than thirty-six pounds each eleven months before,,and, the hogs weighed, when handsomely dressed , from"four hundred and fifty to four-hundred and seventy-five pounds each!" Lac-Varnish for Vines. Grape-vines may be pruned at anv period without danger from loss of bleeding, by simply covering the cut parts with' varnish made by1 dissolving stick-lac in alcohol ' The lac-varnish soon dries , and forms _au impenetrable coat to rain ; it'may also "be applied with advantage in coatin_* thle wounds of' young trees.

fortress Monroe. STRENGTH' OF THE POST ITS DEFENSES AND CAPACITY. Comparatively few persons are aware of the real strength of Fortress Monroe, and of the powerful influenoe it must exert, if under the right direction, all along the Southern-border. No careful observer who becomes' alfcaehe ' d to thiB garrison, and '_wjio has' gopd opportunities of inspecting the surrounding country and its approaches, can fail to be impressed with the impregnability of the position. With regard to the Fortress itself, the original point of attack and? defense is toward the sea. But little apprehension appears to have been enter7 tained by our Government at the time oi the construction and* equipment of Forjfress _^Monroe, that it would ever be assailed on •<the*iand side; and such infamous treason as "we are now called upon to encounter does-'tfot1 seem "to have been contemplated by . .our patriotic _^ fathers.

_^rimn _aib _^ii The Union Areli. The Union arch over the Potomac, at Cabin Joun Kun , seven miles West of Washington, is a magnificent piece of masonry. It is a single arch thrown from the natural abutment of solid rock at the base of one hill to a corresponding one on the other side. It is one hun dred feet above the bed of the river , an 1 has a span of two hundred and twenty feet, with a ' rise of fifty-seven feet and three inches. -,Captain Montgomery C. Meigs, now Quartermaster _^ General of the Federal army, planned- the structure. No other stone arch in this country or in Europe exceeds it in beautiful proportion and in length of span.

Drams for Yards. If a barn is not set in a hollow it may always be drained and kept dry. And who would have a wet cow-yard'if he could avoid it ? Nothing is gained by keeping a wet cow-yard. The eaves of the barns and sheds .should never pour their water into the yard to run off through it—but the rains that fall from the clouds into the yard will do no harm, they are wanted to mollify and mix the ingredients. This water should have a. chance to drain off and leave the surface dry. It should be allowed to extend far into the field or mowing-ground. Let it run—it is the cheapest mode that we have to spread a fertilizer over the farm. It is slovenly and silly to keep puddles of water in any cow-yard when they can be drained off.—Ploughman. • >

Productiveness of Fowls. A French' journal states that experiments, to ascertain the comparative productiveness of the different breeds of poultry, were made, last Spring, in the Zoological Gardens of the Bois de Boulogne; The number of eggs laid by the fowls in that establishment, has been immense , and the sale of them produced, in April, the sum of 3,083f. It appears that the Asiatic breeds of Nackin and Brahmapootra are the' best layers; the FrenchJ Oreveeoours come next ; the Houdans third ; the La Fleche fourth ; and after them t.he Dorkings and a Dutch breed. The Nankins and Brahmapootras are also remarkably precocious, and, according to some breeders , they begin laying in February, and keep on almost to the _* end of the year.

Iron Steamship. . An iron steamship has just been launched in England which, it is said, cannot sink, no matter what accident or damage may befall , her, She, has three distinct decks, each of which is air-tight, so that if a.plate were removed, or a hole .knockejd through the side in either deck, or even if her bottom;jw.ere torn away altogether, she would still float, there being no communication between either of the lower decks, each of which communicates with the upper deck by.a separate shaft or hatchway. If a fire was to break out in the hold, or in either of the compartments , it would be onlyinecessary to close the communicating shaft, and leave it to die out of itselffas no air could get to it.

Pluriometcr, A new pluviometer, or rain measurer , has recently been, contrived by a Frenchman, by _whichrthe number of showers, not only, but Sven the number of drops that have fallen on a' given spot may be accurately determined. The principle consists in the effect of, the rain on chemically-prepared paper, which is unwound in strips from a cylinder 'working by clock machinery.
