TO CORRESPONDENTS, &c.
Wo are, (says the Madisonian.) overrun I
with correspondents. It is a good syrup- ;
tom, we confess, but we beg, in self-defence
to suggest to them, very respectfully, a few
rules for their observation :
1. Condense your articles, and make
them as brief as possible.
2. Never send us a communication un
less you arc sure it has point.
3. Never expect to see your communica
tion in print, unless you can write gram
matically, and can do your own spelling
4. Never write on both sides of your pa
per,if you intend your article tobeprinted.
It is a great inconvenience to the composi
tor, and can scarcely be tolerated, unless I
the communication is front a distance.
o. Never bore an editor bv reading arti
cles to him. Leave it to his discretion,
and abide your time.
6. Never ask an editor t'tc news—it is j
like getting professional advice without
fees, or smuggling goods. Take his pa
per—pay for it—and then you will get the
news without inquiry.
7. It is a great mistake to suppose that
an editor’s sanctum is a public reading
room. To tumble and read an editor’s ex
changes, is as bad as riling the fountain
where the spring folks are dipping water
for their customers,
8. When you wish to discontinue your
paper, do it with as much decency as you
ordered it, always remembering that an
editor forever Sets him down as no gentle
man, who, after requesting his paper, com
pels the postmaster to send an abrupt no
tice, that the paper “Is refused and that
an editor can never regard him an honest
man who discontinues his paper without
9. Never flatter yourself that an anony
mous communication, addressed to, or
touching persons, will ho noticed.
“ Cousin William,” said a merry, mis
chievous young girl, yesterday, in my
hearing, “ what do you think I heard a
pretty young lady say of you ?”
William blushed, and looked as grave
as the circumstance, that “ a pretty young
lady” had said something about him,
would allow. “ I don’t know—something
good I hope, Who was it, Coz?”
“ Shant tell you ; but the truth is, a Very
pretty girl did say someting about you.”
“ Well ; tell me what it was.”
“ I shant, unless you will give me that
ring that 1 wanted.”
“ Well, agreed*—you shall have it—now
“ Well, now—don’t blush so—she said
you were the ugliest looking man that she
ever laid her eyes on”—and off ran the
little witch with a merry laugh, that made
the house ring again.— Bachelor's Button.
MODERN MILITARY TACTICS.
“ ’Tintion !” said an Irishman, who was
advanced to the high office of first sergeant
in a volunteer corps in a western village—
“ ’tintion !” he said, addressing the com
pany, who had just formed in line before
him, and he proceeded :—“ Now, gintlc
men, I pureeed to call the rowl. Sich o’

A Frenchman once trading in mar
ket, was interrupted by an impertinent
would-be-waggish sort of a fellow, who ri
diculed him, by imitating his imperfect
manner of speaking the English language.
After patiently listening to him for some

“ Mine fine friend, ybu vud do well to
stop now ; for if Samson had made no bet

“ You claim to be a human being !
Why, sir, if you have a soul, ten thousand

At a meeting of the London Medical So

to cure the most desperate cases of tooth

with rheumatism,) by the application of
the following remedy to the decayed tooth :

I *• But we were discoursing on the mitri
j five qualities of the tomato. This is a ve
j getable which deserves a far more general
J use. Wo know of no article which grows
! in our region of country that is more health
j ful. It is well known that this fact has
j procured for the plant a medical standard.
J We doubt this lias not been entirely over
| rated. The idea started by a medical
| gentleman several years since of substitut
! ing the virtues of the tomato for calomel,
was a proof of this, and very likely grew out
I of the circumstance of the healthful effects
| of a tomato diet, during the prevalence of
: miasmatic diseases, which affect the biliary
; organs in a greater degree—these being
| the class of diseases in which physicians
j most generally resort to the, employment of
calomel. But there can bo no mistake as
to the tonic effects of the vegetable under
notice ; and we feel justified, on the word
] of a medical friend, in recommending its
use to those debilitated from the ravages of
diseases peculiar to the warm months—we
mean those affecting the bowels. It strikes
us that if tomatoes, prepared with large
quantities of stale bread and liberal use of
salt, in the ordinary stewing mode, were
adopted as the food of children laboring
under, or recovering from Summer disease,
the result would be highly gratifying. The
experiment is well worth the testing. Os
course, unrestrained indulgence in their
use must not bo allowed hv the parents.”

TO PURIFY WATER.
It is not so generally known as it ought
to be, that pounded alum possesses the pro
perty of purifying water. A large table
spoonful of pulverised alum, sprinkled into
a hogshead of water, (the water stirred
round at the time,) will, after a lapse of a
few hours, by precipitating to the bottom the
impure particles, so purify it; that it will be
found to possess nearly all the freshness and
clearness of finest spring water. A pail
ful containing four gallons may be purified
by a single tea-spoonful.
A good story is told of a chap in North
Carolina, who went the entire figure in the
way of marrying all the-girls who would
have him, without waiting for any of them
to die off, as the law directs. After having
married the thirteenth, some of his first
loves came down Upon him, and had him
placed safely in jail. But a person so fond
of perfect liberty, and who could get out of
Hymen’s noose with such ease, found little
difficulty of getting out of the “jug”—and
the next news of him, he was running at
large with a heavy reward offered for his
apprehension. He was shortly recognized
by a gentleman, who, anxious to get the re
ward, invited him to his house, desired him
to sit down—called his wife to chat with
him, as an inducement to detain him there,
while he made some excuse for leaving a
I few minutes, and started for a constable to
; arrest the runaway. What was the poor
j man’s astonishment on returning with the
i constable, to find that the Lothario, taking
1 advantage of his short absence, had ab
sconded with his wife ! This makes the
