Care of llarncss.
Leather is selJcra injured by being
wet, if hung up to dry, instead kZ beiug
left iu a mass ou the tlour or in a cur
ner, where the drying is do slow as to
create mould. ' For geueral use harness
should be fairly oiled, and for this pur
pose either pure neatsfoot oil' should be
used, or the article known by the cur
rits a 'daubing;! and this should be rub
bed in w hile the leather is moist, but nut
wet. The harness should be wrapped
in a wet cloth one day before the apr lica
liou of daubing, or iieaiVfoot oil ; this
thould be rubbed on Hiiortly witU the
truih for a sulficient length of lime , to
insure its entrance into the leather, rath
er than leave it upon its immediate sur
face. If the leather be positively dry,
this substance cannot enter, and there
fore the necesity of its being moist and
pliant, at the tun : of application. Var
niih should never be applied ; it fills
pores, and prevents the necessary access
of air, causing the leather to become
crisp and rigid, aud in a short space, of
time it is rendered tender, causing it to
crack, break' &c. Before applying any
oil substance to leather, all dirt should be
thoroughly removtd lrorn Us surface, and
no other material than lampblack should
ever be mixed with oil where it is uece
sary to Llacken the leathei. Shoe black
ing is sometimes utd, and always with
inmrious etiect: it frequently contains
sulphuric acid, which, wtieii brought in
con act with leather, rapidiy destroy it.
Where the Kainer is very ary, us wiin
boots and shoes, tbe injury is not so great
Vegetable oils should never be applied to
harness of any kind, lor alter a while
ihey harden tue leather and destroy its
uselulness. Leather curtains should nev
er be varnished, but ahvavs keot Drfec-
, j m
ly pliant by very moderate and frequent
application of the oils we nave nameu.
Those who wish to do rrood, hesitate
to do it, would do w til to read the fol-
niti. Ti e reason may be suggested
ly the perusal.
"Dj not delude yourself with the idea
that 'you c.iii pltnse everybody. AY ho
ever knew ai.yt i.dy that waj worth any
thing that had nobody to find fault with
him? You will have to do evil in many
cases to please the evil ; flatter so.nf to
gratify their pride; indulge the selfish;
submit to the tyrannical; be a tool for the
ambitious, and be careful not to have any
thing as good as thos-J who desire to
have everything superior to their neigh
bors. If you are a public man you sho'd
be dillijrent.you must expect to have ma
ny st cre:ly dislike you, and talk against
you for y Jiir s i :ces. An 1 if ycrj ac
complish but little, though many show
themselves friendly, it often leaks out
that some who appear pleasant to you
can do thus because they do not fear
your rivalry. They may smile on you
outwardly, and yet entertain contempt
for your inefficiency. Always do that
wnTch is right, be dillisent, do the most

Ins was however inconsiderable. The

apparently Tcry little execution. Our
artillery being composed of small field
pieces against the rifltd cannon of the

when the retreat was sounded and execu

How the Chinese Pay their Physi
There is a custom which pcrvails with
the Chinese that strikes us as peculiarly
sagacious. The people aeree to pay the
doctor an annual stipend so long as they
are in good health, but the moment tney
fall ill ihe pay ceases. The idea is a
good one, and would put the doctor to ins
utmost curative skill. We apprehend fe
vers would have their quietus iu a short
time, palpitations cease tneir quawtns
in a jiffy, agues gladly doll" the white
feather, arid consumptions be nipped" in
in the bud. Peorle would o about in the
very redundanry of health, and they and
the dot-tor live till thev would be asham-
red to look e arh other in the face. Then
a physician would blu.sh to confess to a
patient, and to have one die would sub

The Philosophy of the Beard.
The vain man curleth his beard with
his fingers, the conceited man stroketh
his with his hand gently. The choleric
man hath it short and crip; the sensual
man thick and coarse, the man nt sen
timent haih it soft anJ flowing; the tim
id man spare. The bv.y is beautiful with
the "down upon Ms chin;' the wane,
flowing beard of a Nestor is magnifi
cent. We never think of the princely
Abraham, exefrt with a long w hite beard
and turban. The fine old cavaliers of
r.limhmli' time were brave and court
eous, because of the beard ; the Romau
inquisitor is cruel because he is shorn
Truly, there is philosophy in a beard.
A writer m the Southern Planter says
If vour hocrs are lousy, ro to their rub
bing place, or what is better, take a log
tPnVir twelve feet long and ro-.igh. place
it by their feeding place, and keep it
constantly smeared wuh tar. No 5pan
iel ever ljved water better than a lousy
hog loves tar, and he applies it himself,
to the most infested spots on his body,
so effectually that th lice speedily dis
appear. I have seen 9-5 out of DG hogt
smear themselves with tar in less than
thirty minutes after tney had access to
it ; and not one had erer known its use

ihnt tho rebels were fortuving a camp
with strong batteries at Great Bethel U
miles from Hampton on the Yorktowu
road. He determined it necessary to dis
lodge them. Accordingly movements
were made last night from Fortress Mon
roe an 1 Newport mews. About midnight
Col Duryea's Zjuaves.and Col Touipsons
AILinv regiment crossed the river at
Hampton by means of six Urge Baitrux
manned by the naval bngaue anu iook up
the line of n arch, the former some two
miles in advance of the latter. At the
cm limp Col Bendix's regiment and a
detachment from the Vermont and Mass.
regiment at Newport moved forward to
form a junction with the regiment rrom
r.inrts.s Monroe at Little Bethel about
half v'ay between Hampton and (treat
Bethel. The Zouaves passed Little
Bethel about four 4 o'clock in the morn
iror. Col Benlix' arrived and took up
a position at the intersection of the roads.

regiment m the darkness ot tne nign:
fired upon Ul 1 hompou s column.
Marching in close order and led 6y L.ieui
Builer, son and aid-de-camp of Gen But
ler, with two pieces of artillery. Other
accounts say Col Thompson's regiment
fired first. At all events the lire or tne
Albanv regiment vai harmless, while that
of the German was fatal, killing one man
and wounding seriously two or three
others, with several other slight casualties.
The Albany regiment being bark of the
Germans, discovered from the accoutre
ments left cn ih field, tint the supposed
enemy were their friends. Thy had in
the meantime fired nine rounds w ith small
arms and a field piece. The Zouaves
hearing the firing turned and also fired
upon tli .2 Albany regiment. Al daybreak
C,A AIUmi's and Col Carr's regiment
moved from the rear of the Fortress to
support the main body. The mistake at
Little Bethel havirrg been ascertained, the
buildings were burued nud a major with
two prominent secessionists taken prison
ers. The troops then advanced upon
Great B-Mhef, but. our three small pieces
of artillery were unable to ccpe with the
heavey rilled oannoa of the enemy. The
rebel battery was completely masked.
No men could be' seen; only the flashes of
the guns. There were probably no less
than a thousand men behind the batteries
of the rebels. A well concerted move
ment might have secured the position, but
Brig Gen Feirce who commended the ex
pedition appears to have lost his presence
of mind snd the Troy regimen! stood for
an hour exposed to rr galling fire, when
an order to retreat was at Its! given.
Lieut Grebble of the U S A in command
cf the artillery was struck by a cannon
ball and instantly killed. He had spiked
his gua and was endeavouring to with
draw his command. CaDt W R Wilson
after the order to retreat was given took
possession of the gun and broatht it off
the Field wuh the corps of the L.ieut.
Both were brought to Fortress Monroe
this eveuing. There are probably 2j
