The Horse.—'Thu Canadian horso it a har
dy curiosity. “ Tlio winter travolling in Can

prising with wliot apeed n good Canadian
hone will go when druwing a cabriolet rver
'ho ice, instancra having occurred of tfyem
travelling ninety inilea, ip ono of theao vohi-
.ilea, in twelve.Iioura; but when this occurs,
tlio roads must be very smooth und bard.
The Hioea of lheir horses are never roughen
tid, as in this country, by turning up the ends
qf them hut by inserting two or more steof
screws, which can be removed or reitowcd at
plcaseiu. 1 he horses of CuuaJn are very
hurdy animals ; llicir best pare is a trot; thev
are accustomed to much' bad usage and hard
work, and are the moat willing creatures in the
world, fur they never refuse tho draught.—
They are brought front the country into Que
bec, in the coldest weather, and left standing
in the open air, without covering, for hours to*
geilur, while their owners ore transacting
then business or drinking, and they seem not
to be any the worse lor n. In the winter, the
Canadian hor»e, like all other quadrupeds of
•hat country, acquires an increased quantity
ol fur to protect him from tlio cold, and curry
combs il never used. When the horses have
been betted by fakl driving, in i cold day,
they appear to hnvo a sort of icicle at every
hair, and icicle* two or tlireo inches in length
an often suspended from their notes. Trav
elling on Lake Cbamplniu is at all timo dan
gerous i it is very common for sledge, horses,
aud men, to fall through the ice, where the
water it some hundred feet deep, and there ia
no warning of danger till the horses drup in,
pulling the sledge alter thorn; luckily the
waak places are of no great extent; the trav
eller extricates himself f,„ m ,h„ sledge .a
aoon at possible; and ha finds the ice strong
enough to support him, though il will not bear

there are always twom these aledges-their
struggles ooly tend to injure and sink them-
but, aa they have always round their neck a
mpp with • running noose, the moment the
ice breaks, the driver and passenger get out*
and, catching hold of llie rope, pull it with
their force, which in a very few minutes stran
gles the horso; end no sooner doos this hap
pen than they rive in (he water, float on one
side, and aro drawn out on strong ice, where
the noose of the rope being loosened, respira
tion returns, and in a short time the horses
are on tlioir feet, und as much ulive ns ever.—

In tlio Canadian horses, is llicir fondness for
fish. The fish thus eaten, execpl in sizo re
sembles it rod, and arc from four to nine inrli-
es long; tho English call them “ tommy end.”
The manner of catching them is hy cutting
holes in the ice, und by pulling down either
nets or lines. Over this hole a temporary
house is built, large enough to contain half a
dozen people, and a stove to keep them warm.
They who cannot afford deals to build a
house, substitute large pieces of ice, with
which they form a defenee against tlio weath
er. Midnight is the best time for fishing, and
u strong light is placed near tho hole, which
allrucls the attention of the lish, and brings
lliem round it ill largo quantities. There nro
a number of these houses on the river St
Charles, wliish have a strange nppenrance in n
dark night, especially those made of ice.”
Coffee.—The coffee-pot should ho three
parts lull of boiling water; the coffee is to he
added u spoonful at n^mr, and well stirred
between each ; then boil gently, still stirring
to prevent the mixture from boiling over ns
the coffue swells, and to force it into combina
tion with tlio water, this will bn effected in a
low minutes, after which, the most gentle boil
ing miisl be kept up during an hour. The
coffeu must bo then removed from tho lire to
settle, one nr two spoonfuls of cold water
thrown in assists the elurifieution, and precip
itates the grounds. In about an hour, or as
soon as the liquor has become clear, it is to
lie pourod into another vessel, taking rare not
to disturb the sediment. • Coffee mado in this
manner will ho of the finest flavor, and may bo
kept three days in summer, and four or five in
winter; when ordered for use, it only requires
healing in the roffee-pnl, and liiuy ho served

It becomes the painful duty of the Board of

where cases had already broken out.
