An Experiment in Grinding Cot-|
ton Seed.. —We are convinced uponl
fiirther reflection and inquiry, that tliel
su,Location thrown out in our last is-1
sue upon grinding cotton seed in tliel
common grist mill, is a matter of great I
p: ictical importance to our readers in I
the South. If cottonseed brought to]
the North, deprived of its oil, and I
ground into meal is worth a dollar mull
a half a hundred, it ought to be worthl
much more upon the plantation, ground I
before pressing, where feeding stuff is I
in great demand. I
The grand difficulty is in the busi-1
ness of grinding. The seed contain®!
so much oil, that the common grist I
mill would probably clog with the pure I
cotton seed, and the conclusion would!
he jumped at, that the mill was unfit I
iV.r the work. We wish therefore, to I
suggest several experiments in grind-1
ing; first a mixture of three parts of I
cotton seed to one of corn ; secondly, I
an equal quantity of each ; and third-1
Iv, three parts of corn to one of cotton I
see L T 1 e corn being 1 rd and dry, I
will absorb the oil, and we think, keep I
the mill clean, so that it will do its!
work perfectly. Animals are not fond I
of the pure meal at first, and have to I
a t j mixing it ini
small quantities with other palatable I
feedin g stuff. When the taste is I
. they eat ravenously without!
any mixture. If ouv correspondent!
at Edward’s Depot, Miss., who lias sug-l
gested these inquiries, would under-!
i. ke these eqperiments, and report!
th n, we should feel greatly obliged.!
The manufacture and use of cotton!
seed meal upon the plantation, we are!
confident, will form anew era in the!
husbandry of the Gulf States.— Amer- 1

Nature gives us a profitable hint asl
to the proper amount < f protection fori
this plant. It grows among the gras-1
ses, and the old fog that forms after|
mowing, where the fields are not pas-1
tured, screens them sufficiently from I
the cold. If the leaves are covered aa
all, it should only be with loose littoyj
vlrroukih which the air tan
freely. With this precaution, we navel
never found any difficulty in the win-1
ter-killing of the plants. It is better I
to manure them at this season, than I
in the spring. What is Spread uponl

practice, that putrescent manures

For pears, the leading constituents re-1
quired are phosphate of lime and pot-1
ash. The same may be said of quin-1
ces. Cherries, plums, &c., require a I
greater variety of inorganic food, be
ing sure always to have present the
soluble phosphates in moderate quan
tities. Peaches, apricots and necta
rines require a full variety of the alka
lies in the soil, so that the soluble sil-1
icate .y ’ e fully formed ; these eri-1

STurnxn Horses Feet. —A wri-l
ter in the Country Gentleman , says]
that a horse’s foot should be stuffed]
the night before shoeing. The object I
is to soften the hoof so as to he easily I
cut. It is done by binding’ on tow, I
well wet with water. If the hoof be I
a healthy one no harm is done. If I
the heel is very low. stuffing may not I
be necessary. Stuffing with cow dung, I
as is sometimes practiced, is injurious I
and should never he practiced. (?) I
Clay, wet with water, is good, but
dries too soon. A brittle hoof may!
be improved by anointing with a mix-1
ture of lard, beeswax and tar melted]
together. Never allow a horse to I
stand on the straw wet by urine. In]
shoeing, do not make the inside cork]
so sharp as the outer one.
Anew breed of sheep is noticed.—l
They are called Purik Sheep, and arel
the most diminutive of the ‘ovis’ family,l
the full grown ones being not larger!
than lambs of a few weeks old. The!
Purik Sheep has small bones, ’a|
fleshy carcass, the mutton excellent, I
and yields three pounds a year of very
fine wool. The ewes generally give
two lambs a year. The great advan- ]
tage of this over other breeds is its do-|
mestic habits—living around the cot-1
tages quiet as a house-dog, and feed-1
ing upon all sorts of waste garbage, I
scraps of fruit, vegetables, etc. Asl
pets for children, they are infinitely I
preferable to dogs. I

| Personae Ornaments of the
[ Egyptians. —The passion of the Egyp
tians for decorative jewelry was, in
|deed, excessive. Men, as well as wo
men, delighted thus to adorn thetn
[solves; and the desire was not confined
Ito the higher ranks; for, though the
I subordinate classes could not" afford
the sparkling gems and
als which glowed upon the persons of
I their superiors, their vanity was grati-
I tied by humbler imitations, of bronze,
I glass or porcelain.
; “Costly and elegant ornaments,”
| observes Prof. Rossellini, “abounded
|in proportion as clothing in general
[was simple and scarce among the
[ Egyptians. Girdles, necklaces, arm
| lets, earrings and amulets of various
| kinds suspended from the neck, are
[found represented in the paintings,
| and, in fact, still exist on the mum
mies. Figures of noble youths arc
I found entirely devoid of clothing, but
| richly ornamented with necklaces and
| other jewels.”
An immense number of those “jew
| els of silver and jewels of gold” have
I been found in the tombs and on the
| persons of mummies, and are deposited
[in profusion in every museum. , %
| The earrings generally worn by the
[ladies, were large round single hoops,
[from one inch and a half to two and a
| third in diameter, and frequently of a
| still greater size ; or made of six rings
[soldered together. Sometimes, an asp
whose body was of gold, set with pre
cious stones, was worn by persons of
rank as a fashionable caprice. Other
| figures of gold, bearing the heads of
| fanciful animals, also of gold, were
[remarkable for their singularity of
| form and delicacy of workmanship,
| carrying two pearls, and being double
I in their construction.
Bracelets, armlets and anklets were
worn by men as well as by women ;
I they were usually of gold, frequently
[set with precious stones, or inlaid with
[enamel. Avery magnificent. snake
Ibracelet of Egyptian workmanship is
■ preserved in the Leyden museum. It
lis of gold, three inches in diameter,
[and one and a half inch in heigltt, and
[is interesting, because it belonged to
[the Pharaoh whom we conclude tohave
[been the patron and friend of Joseph,
[Thothrnes 111., whose name it bears.

I being the material chiefly selected.
