MISCELLANEOUS. 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 and punctuation. 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 paying arrearages. 9. Never flatter yourself that an anony mous communication, addressed to, or touching persons, will ho noticed. VERY AGREEABLE. “ 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 tell met” “ 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’ ye as are here ’ill answer ‘ Here,’ as yer names are called but ; and those that aren’t prisint, ’ill say ‘ Absint.’ ” WITTY REPARTEE. 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 , time, the Frenchman cooly replied : “ Mine fine friend, ybu vud do well to stop now ; for if Samson had made no bet ter use of de jaw-bone of an ass dan you do, he would never have killed so many Fillistians.” We copy the following “ Description of the man who did not pay for his paper,” from one of our western exchanges : “ You claim to be a human being ! Why, sir, if you have a soul, ten thousand of its size would have more room in the shell of a mustard seed, than a frog in the Pacific Ocean. Nay, thou sand souls like your’s might colonize on the point of a cambric needle, and live for fifty years, increasing in a ratio equal to the Irish peasants ; and should they then have a civil war, the vanquished party would have mountains and valleys to re treat to, ten days’ journey off. Why, man, neighbor Gripe’s scyjl is as much larger than your’s, as a saw-mill log is larger than a thread of a spider’s web ; and his can hardly be discerned by the aid of a microscope that magnifies a million of times.” While the log-cabin was raising in Rich mond, Va., (the logs being rough as they came from the forest,) a Locofbco asked one of the workmen : “ Why don’t you skin your poles!” “ Never mind,” replied the Tippecanoe boy, “ we’ll do tire skinning at the polls in November.” At a meeting of the London Medical So ciety, Dr. Blake stated, that he was able to cure the most desperate cases of tooth ache, (unless the disease was connected with rheumatism,) by the application of the following remedy to the decayed tooth : Alum reduced to an impalpable powder, two drachms ; nitrous spirit of rether, se ven drachms. Mix and apply them to the tooth. TOMATO. The following is extracted from the Baltimore Morning Sun : 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.” BUTTS. Take half a pint each of gin, molasses, vinegar, and sol't soap; mix and shake them well together, and while foaming, pour the medicine down the horse’s neck— in five minutes, the horse will be free from pain. This has been tried some fifty times with success —not failing in a single in stance. 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 fellow’s stock of wives on hand/oarteew ! ! “ I’m monarch of all I survey,” as the blind man very solemnly remarked. (CP JYollce This. X3.) XS/-JIO is K. M.
