From the Americas Agriculturist,
Utility of the Barometer,
"John Underwood, Esq., of Aurelia,
JNew York, secured his entire hay crop

erringly to dry weather, and upon the
strength of that he sent in his mowing

the farmer will as soon think of return

Since we have commenced making ob
servations upon the aneroid barometer,
we have been impressed more strongly
than evei before,- with the great utility
and importance of this instrument to far
mers. During the dry weather, preva
lent here all through. June and July, the
barometer index remained almost stead
ily at a point above 30 inches, though
every slight shower that fell, was indica
cated by a rapid declension of the index
hand, from two to ten hours in advanci.
The other day toe remained at home
writing until after dinner, and then went
down to our city office. The sky being
clear, with no indication of rain, we went
thinly clad from head to foot. On reach
ing the office, clouds had begun to gath
er, and the barometer had fallen nearly
half an inch,which ourassociate informed
us, had 'occurred within an hour. Wre
obeyed its injunction, and started at once
for home, and had scarcely arrived there
before a heavy fall; of rain commenced,
accompanied with - thunder and a strong
wind. The barometer in that case cer
tainly saved us a disagreeable wetting
and perhaps a cold. This is only one of
several similar instances cf tae positive
indications of rain, which have been giv
en by 'our barometer during; a. few weeks
The contrary indicatior.3 have been
scarcely less marked. For several times
there has been every sign of. rain in the
heavens, but the barometer was unmoved,
and in no such case 1 a ; rain fallen. Here
is one example. We had planned to
take our family to see the Great Eastern
early on the morning of July 25. On
rising in the morning, the sky indicated
a rainy day. and we were in doubt wheth
er to defer the visit or not. A glance
at the barometer showed no change in
the index for twenty-four hours, and we
determined to follow its indication. The
rjsult was, we had a fine day, and an in
structive and pleasant visit to the "Big
Ship." As it turned out, we could not
have gone on any subsequent day of her
stay, aud but for our barometer, would
have lost ihe opportunity of inspecting
We particularize the al ov ; instances
to illustrate the practical utility of the
barometer. The truth is. science, is con

From the Boston Cultivator.
After the removal of the young swarm
to the stand, the hive should be elevated
upon the pins at the corners at once, and
if the swarm is a large one, and the wea
ther very warm at the time, the bees will
be likely to lay outside of the hive, in
which case it should be raised, by small
blocks at the corners an inch or more.
This will admit such a current of air that
the bees will soon enter the hive, and if
the season is a favorable one, will fill it
with combs in fifteen days.
The boxes for storing surplus honey
may be put on immediately after remov
ing to the stand, or may be left off until
the bees are seen to cluster down to the
bottom board, as they will not in any case
enter them to work till the space below
is occupied ; and the objection that some
persons raise against my method of fur
nishing extra store room upon the top of
the hive, is without foundation, as in no
case have I known a swarm of bees to
commence storing honey in box or sup
er, until the main hive was filled with
combs and honey to within two or three
inches of the bottom.
No surplus honey need be expected
from any but old stocks and firtt swarms,
as all after swarms will have as much
space as they can occupy the first season
in the main section.
The necessity of having very strong
swarms cannot be too deeply impressed
upon the bee-keeper's mind. With this
end in view, be should be governed by
certain rules, varying them according to
circumstances. The following is the
course I would recommend in uniting the
weak swarms. I have remarked that as
a general rule, all third swarms should
be returned to the parent hire; there
may be an exception to this rule in cases
of early swarming, when the third swarm
issues by the 25th of June. Then they
may be hived, uniting with a second or
third swarm from another hive, issuing
at about the same time, or at the longest
within four or five days. If a longer time
elapse, they would not be likely to unite
harmoniouslj'. W hen issuing thus early
in the season, the old stock would not be
likely to suffer from over-swarming, but
would have ample time to recruit their
number?, and by September, if prosper
ous, would be found very populous. In
cafes of late swarming, say the last cf
June, it is well to unite second swarms, if
it is not desired to increase the number
of stocks very fast. If th season is a
good one, if they would be likely to make
a few pounds of surplus honey ; at any
rate, they would fill the hive and form a
strong stock, and probably be very pros
perous the year following. Third swarms
issuing as early as the 16th of June and
hived alone, will store about 15 pounds of
honey in an average season, which is
worth at least two dollars and fifty cents,
and in the fall the bees may be driven
out and united with some weak swarm,
when the two together will winter much
better, and, arange as it may appear,
will consume but a small amount more
honey during the winter, than each would
if kept separately. It is much the best
way to unite swarm3 at the season of
swarming, and then they will be likely
to fill the hives with honey and combs,
and consequently swarm earlier the fol
lowing season ; whereas, if not united
till fall, some hives will be only half or
two-thirds filled, and of course the sea
son will be pretty well ad- a ced before
they would fill the remainder and send
off a swarm.
When swarms are united soon after
issuing, no fighting will occur. All that
is necessary to do then, is to hive the
swarm .that is to be united with another in
any convenient box, and shake the bees
clown imnediately in front of the other
hive, when they will quickly enter, and
all will go on peaceably. Uniting fami
lies in the fall is a very different thing,
as each slock of bees has a peculiar scent,
and in uniting them, until the two be
come blended, more or less fighting will
The course then to be pursued, is to
p'ace on3 hive bottom upwards and cover
with a piece of gauze or verv thin cloth.
The other hive should be set directly up
on this, and the bees in both prevented
from escaping, but care should be taken
t? ii'IvV, cui.icient air for resphaticn.
Alter remaining in this position a cou
ple of days, the odcra of the two will be
come so blended that they may be united.
witn pertect safety: lo do this, the
cloth that divides them should be with
drawn, and the lower hive rapped smart
ly with a rod, when, with the aid of smoke
applied to the lower end of the hive, the
bees will nearly all ascend to the upper
one, and no fightincf will take place. In
all such operations with bees, one should
b protected with a bee-dress or a veil,
and thick woolan gloves, to protect his
face and hands.
The present month is a good time to
examing the hives and observe their con
dition. All new swarms, to winter well
and be safe against all contingencies
that is, an early setting in of cold weath
er, and a cold, late Spring should weigh
at least 15 pounds exclusive of the hive ;
and old stocks considerably more, say
from twenty to thirty pounds. Many old
hives will weigh as much without a pound
of honey, as a new one that has been
occupied but ins season, and contains
from eight to ten pounds. All late swarms
and old stocks, that from any causs has
failed to lay up sufficient stores to do
them through the winter, may be fed so
as to winter just as well as any. Un
less it is desired to increase the number
of stocks as fast as possible for a year
or two, I would not advise to unite such
weak swarms, but rather to unite them
with some hive that contains t'ore enough
without feeding, as recommended above.
The reason is, a.late, weak swarm will
send off late weak swarms the next sea
son. As an early, lamb or pig is worth
more than a late one, so is an early
swarrn of bees more valuable than a late
one, only there is a much greater dif
ference, as can readily be shown. A
first swarm of mine that was hived the
first day of June, stored forty pounds of
surplus honey. A first swarm that issued
July 2d, have only filled the hive, and
of the two swarms the latter was the
'arger. Therefore it should te an ob
ject with the apiarian to secure as many
early swarms as possible.
Fecundity of Rats-
Buffon, and others, state, that 1,000,
000 rats may be propagated in two years
from a single pair. If this be true, then
there is no occasion to wonder that dwel
lings, stores and offices are "infested by
these troublesome and destructive ver
min. If what such distinguished natu
ralists state to be true, then it becomes
all whose premises are infested with these
quadrupeds, to enter upon thewoik.of
slaying them as vigorots'y as pes ible,
for you see, if let alone, how quickly
they will fill every hiding-place adapted
to their wants and necessities. It is with
them as with most other vermin and
weeds;, if neglected, their patronage be
comes perfectly overwhelming. Hence
the old maxim, "A stich in time saves
The people of Anderson County, Tex
a.c, held a public meeting, last month to
request Gov. Houston to call an extra
sesiion of the Legislature. They say
that the crops in their own and many
other counties of the State have failed,
and the people will not only be sorely
pressed to obtain the necessaries of life,
but be unable to meet their pecuniary
obligations. They therefore desire that
the Legislature should adopt measures
for their relief.

T;if?:f. his lun existed a mWic drwantl for an
effective purvative 'ill whii h could be rel:el rn a
ure and pert'ett'y safe in its operation. 'i'V.ls hs
-eeii prrpnrrd to meet that demand, and an cxten
ive tri.il of virturs has cvnclusivcly shown i'!v
whut succrss it accomplishes the purpose dsiirni'd.
It is easy to rnake a physical i, hut not enty t
niiikc the best rf all pills one which should tiava
nor.p of the oViections, hut all the advant.isrrs, cf
every e ther. Ihis has boon attempted here, and
with wh.ft surcess wc would respectfully suhmit to
the public decision. It h;is been unfortunata fvr
the patient hitherto th:it ahuot every purgative
medicine is acrimotiions and irritating to the bow
els. This is not. Many of thrm produce so much
Kr'i'.iiii.- pnin and revulsion in the system as to more
lh;n counterbalance the good to be derived Iron.
tli -in. These pii!t produce no irritation or pain,
unless it arise from a previously existing obstruc
tion or dcnuiSiPiiumt in the Lnwcls. i'.er.i!! purely
vrcf:ihhVj i:o h;inn can arise from their use m any
rjnantity ; but it is letter that any medicine should
be taken judiciously. Minute directions for their
use in the several diseases to which they are ap
plicable are given on the box. Among the com
plaints which have been speedily cured by them, we
may mention Liver Complaint, in its various forme
of Jaundice, Indigestion, Languor and Loss of Ap
petite, Listlessncss, Irritability, Bilious Headache,
bilious Fever, Fever and Ague, Fain in the Side
and Loins ; for, in truth, all these are but the con
sequence of diseased action in the liver. As aa
aperient they afford prompt and sure relief in Cos
tiveness, Files, Colic, Dysentery, Humors, Scrofula
and Scurvy, Colds with soreness of the Iwnly, Ulcers
and impurity of the blood, Irregularities; in short,
any and every ease whore a purgative is required.
Thev have also produced some singularly suc
cessful cures in liheumatism, Gout, Dropsr, fJravel,
Erysipelas, Fa'pifation of the Heart, Fains in the
Back, Stomach, and Side. They should be free'?
taken in the srring of the year, to purify the blood
and prepare tne system for the change of seasons.
An occasional dose stimulates the stomach atd
bowels into healthy action, and restores the appe
tite and vigor. They purify the blood, and, by tliciT
stimulant action on the circulatory system, reno
Tate the strength of the body, nnd restore the
wasted or diseased energies of the whi le organism.
Hence an occasional dose is advantageous, even
though no serious dersngement exists; but un
necessary doling should never be carried too f;ir,
as every purgative medicine reduces, the strength,
when Liken to excess. The thousand cases in w hich
a physic is required cannot be enumerated here, but
they suggest themselves to tho reason of every
body ; and it is confidently believed this pill whl
answer a better purpose than auy thing which hat
hitherto been available to mankind. When their
virtues are once known, the public will no longer
doubt what remedy to employ when in need of a
cathartic medicine! Being sugar-wrapped, they are
pleasant to take, and being purely egct;iblc, 09
canii ran arise from their use m any quantity.

Thi remedy Las, won for itself such notoriety
from its cures of every variety of pulmouary dixcase,
that it is entirely unnecessary to recount the evi
dences of its virtues in ary' conimunify where it
has been rmplovcd. So wide is the field of its use
fulness, and so" numerous the cases of iU cures,
that almost every section of the country alounds
in persons publivty known, who have been restored
from alarming ciid even desperate disease of the
lungs bv its use. When or.ee tried its supeviority
over every other medicine of its kind is too appa
rent to ecape observation, and where its virtues are
known, the public no longer hesitate what antidote
to employ for the distressing and dangerous affec
tions of the pulmonary organs which arc incident
to our climate. Not only in formidable attack
npon the lutrgs, but for the milder varieties of
Colds, Corom, Uoakkkness, Sc. ; and for Chtx
uk k.n it is the j h-asantcbt and safest medicine that
can be obtained. . O
