liuman roica, which could he heard jcrliaja

' After repeating a very loud and shrill
cream several liutc, tha voice fell to a low

a plain nud distinct manner, assuring tlio
family that we would out be burucJ, an J ro
questing u to have no frur of any injury, m
we were iu no danger- Those iiianilttsta

ulf and family, wo searched the ehtiro
house, to find, if osiblu, the came of thin
new and startling phenomenon, but found
'no one in or nlout tha promises but the fam

of the screams, which wero repealed per

themselves llniiry and John Force, and
claimed to buve beau murdered tamo eleven

aisted that wo should cull ou soiuu of the

Rauney, Henry Moore, and sumo dowin oth

About the third day after thcKO manifest

Hard Times Vuttdlag.
Take half a pint of molasses, half a pint of wat
cr, two tcaspoonsful of salcratus, one large spoon
ful of salt ; thicken with flour to s tolerably thick
baiter; put it in a pudding bag, or better still, in
a mould if you have one, leaving plenty of room
for it to swell out, say nearly one-half. Jloil it
steadily three hours ; it will be good without sauce
of any kind ; but a little butter or cream, or butter
and sugar made into sauce with flour and boiling
w uter and spice widi a little nutmeg, will bo found
a great addition.
Tho Hertford Times says of the abovo : "We
can speak for the excellent qualities of the pudding,
having tried it aud found it 'a fact.' " Michigan
Take an orange with a thin rind ; espress the
juico and strain through s cloth or fine sieve. To
every pint of clear juice add ono and a half lbs of
clean, w ell pulverised sugar j boil slowly over
clear but moderate fire, and skim carefully as long
as any scum rises. It may then bo removed, cool
ed anil bottled. Of this syrup, a couple of tuble
spooiwful, mixed with melted butter, makes an ad
mirable sauce for plum or butter puddiug. The
bottles in which this syrup is kept should bo se
curely corked, and sot in a refrigerator, or in some
cool place in the cellar to prevent fermentation

Who Wants the Silver Cup? -
WE will give a SILVER CUP, or $25 in
GOLD, to the owner of any Reaping
machine who will, at a public trial of reapers, ill
presence of regularly chosen and disinterested
judges, produce a reaper that will do more and '
better work than BurriWt Convertible Reaper.
Said Iriul lo occur during tho coming harvest,
and not more than one reaper of any one kind to
be introduced asconipctilon. Time and place to
be ugrecd on with parlies entering for the trial.
Below wo give a notice of this machine and '
some of the ndvuntages claimed for it : .
" At the trial of reapers in the harvest field in
Geneva, New York, iu July lust, by the judges ap- '
pointed by the New York State Agricultural .
Society, nine reapers were entered, and each re
quired to cut about three acres of wheat and two .,
of barley much lodged and tangled, the straw soft
snd tough, on rough and uneven ground. Evere
facility was afforded for a full and impartial trial,,
aud examination as to draft, construction and per
formance ; and the first prize was awarded tov
Thos. D. Burrill for the Beet Grain Reaper. .
Tho judges, in the report, say : ' T. D. Bum'h"
machine performed its work in the most admirabl
manners the gavels were well laid, th workman-
ship and materials excellent.' It ho bo extra
wheel or pinions beyond what are simply nee-.
ary ; no reel to beat down and waste th grain,
no band wheels, pulleys, bells, straps, or harness
to get out of order; simplicity and stnagth for
doing work oil day and every doy have been the .
1st. It cuts grain of all kinds, in all condition.
wiuioui clogging, and may be worked either by
horses or oxen.
2d. It cuts at aav heivht fmuIJ l four- :
moments change. , .. ,
3d. It discharges th grain in the rear, if re
ferred, like Hussy's, or at Ihe side, Uke MoCor
mick s. This change is made by an extra apron,
(attached ia a moment,) from which the grain i
laid in better condition than by any other machine ' 1
iin. ii naa a balance wheel, which gives a qui-
et and uniform motion to the machine.
We have a few of these reapers for sale. They ' -will
be ready for exhibition on and after April 20th,
snd the attention of Farmers is solicited to THE
BEST REAPER OUT.
