Were half the pover that keeps thr world in teiror
Were half (ho woalth brstowod on camps and courts
Given to redocra the human mind 1'roni error,
There were no need of arsenals and fort?.
The warrior's name would be a name abhor'd,
And erery nation that should lift again
Its hand against its brother on its forehead
Would wear, forevermore, the curse of Cain.

How to make Cheese. The advantages of skill
and exactness in cheese making "are well set forth in
the address by Col. A. Pelrie, before the Herkimer,
N. Y. Agricultural Society:
'Some farmers make less than 300 pounds of cheese
per cow in a season, while others exceed GOO. Per
haps some of this difference may be accounted for by
the inequality of advantages, but I am assured by the
gentlemen in whose skill in the art we have the high
est confidence, that there is a great difference in the
product per cow, when all advantages are equal.
One case I will mention: A gentleman who had for
four years made more than GOO per cow in a season,
from a dairy of 2S cows, let out his dairy to a ten
ant, whose reputation as a common cheese maker was of
the highest order. He observed that the tenant's cheese
were smaller and lighter than they should be, and
suspected the cause, watched his mode of making
them, and found it to be like that of nearly all the
cheese makers in the country by guess, the milk
was tempered, and set, the curd scalded without a
thermometer, and less care was taken in other parts
of the process than he was accustomed lo. He at
tempted to leach the tenant, who was rather prej
udiced lo "book farming" remind him of the repu
tation: the landlord, however, made a few cheese
himself, and the lenant looked on. These were found
to be larger and heavier than the cheese made by tho
tenant. The tenant then adopted Ihe improved mode,
and he could make as large a cheese as his friend.
Both gentlemen now agree, that the improved mode
increased tile amount ten per cent. Now the tenant
was evidently more than an ordinary cheese maker,
for be would have madeovor four hundred pounds
per cow during the season, but by the improved mode
1)0 made over six hundred."
The New York Sim slates lhal at the conclusion
of the great mass meeting got up by tho Associated
Nations' committee, M. Avezzana, a distinguished Ital
ian exile, proposed tbe formation of a military bat
allion of twenty thousand men of all nations, who
will be ready to sail for any country in Europe,
struggling against tyranny and battling for freedom.
r.Ttie Sun also states that a gentleman from tho
west, now in New York, is so anxious personally to
assist the cause of freedom, that he has offered," in
the event or a true effort being made of the liber
ation of Ireland, to give a check on his banker for
two thousand dollars, towards the American Irish
fund now being raised.
