It ha s boon demonstrated that in fattening hogs, a great saving of food is made by cooking: and we be- lieve that a very considerable improvement i n the quality of pork is likewise effected by that process. From experience, we should altogether prefer pork, either for eating fresh o r salting, that ha d boon fat- tened on dairy-slops, with cooked potatoes, pumpkins, or apples, mixed while ho t with a portion of meal, either of corn, rye, barley, oats and peas, or buck- wheat. Wo know the idea is provalentth'at the best pork is made-from \ hard corn and cold water,-\ some, indeed, who allow their hogs vegetables and slops du- ring the first part of their fattening, confine them wholly to corn for a short time before they are killed, in order as they say, to \harden \ th e pork. \We are convinced this is erroneous. I n the western part of th e country, where i n many cases nothing but corn i s fed to hogs from the timo they ar e able to swallow it till they are slaughtered, the pork is no- toriously more oily, and not as well tasted as that which is mado in sections where a variety of food is used. In feeding store swine, the advantage of cooked food i s not so obvious. The digestive organs can T ALLEY BOTANIC PIIVWUN HM CONSTANT- ' mttna S e a smn] 1 quantity of raw food, oven though it J.

It must be a belief similar to this, or the result, of actual ex- perience, which induces th e Irish people, (according to Mr. COLMAS,) to cook their potatoes so slightly as to \ leave a stone m the middle.\ We confess the ., „_. ,„., idea is not unreasonable.

Fur lings they should be boiled in as littlo water as will unswer to cook them, and when soft they should be mashed fine, ttnd about one- fourth of their hulk in meal intimately mixed in.— Utaod, ripe, sweet pumpkin\ cooked in this way, with a little whey or skimmed milk, will make hogs fatten as fast a s any fond we have ever used. But hogs, like other animnis, require a variety of food; they will not do a s well confined to ouo kind, however good it may be ; it is best therefore, to vary their diet frequently, or t o incorporate several arti- cles into a mass, occasionally changing th o relative proportions. Hnj;s should he kept dry and comfortably warm, wliilo being fattened.

SERGEANT MILTON.-TfflOLLING DE- SCRIPTION, Wo listened with the deepest interest, on Satur- day last, to Sergeant Milton's description of Capt. May's charge upon the Moxican battery, aud his own sharo in that glorious struggle. Each man en- gaged in i t was ft hero, and perhaps none who sur- vived passed through a greater share of peril than the brava veteran in question. His modest, unas- suming manner, and plain uanution of facts, stamp them with the seal of truth, and tho wounds on his person bear ample testimony to every word he utters. \At Palo Alto,\ says he, \Hoo k my rank in tho troop as second Sergeant, and while upon tho field, tinucd love ' What o»r5l I for all?

Yearsrolled on: I was happy—happy iii rny homo; and I found a rich mine of affection in that heart whieh beat in unison with my own. I had nevi i- known sorrow; I caved not for tho luxuries of the wealthy j and , though deprived of what I once en- joyed, I knew that, by economy and perseverance, we should leavo to our children enough ta enable them to occupy an elevated position in society. I could not forget tho epithet, i: littlobegear, !! once used by my mother ; ami though I forgave he r at the timo I could not resist the idea of miming our boy Jonathan Smith, junior. Three years had passed: an uncle of my husband died, after having made a will in his favor. The omount was a cool two hundred and fifty thousand dollars. Same time would elapse before it could be secured to us. and in that time I resolved t o prove my summer friends. Thousands were flying t o Saratoga. My first im- pulse\ wits lo go Uiei'o ion, JLuiiiur said thai Ail.and Mrs. Lincoln and their daughter were there. I threw myself into a carriage, and gavo myelf u p to retrospection. But a few years had pawed, and how many remembered Fan Linenln, the laughing girl, that bounded among the fashionable throng like a pet fawn, free to indulge her native gracefulness even in th e sanetnnry ot fashion ? I remembered one I had called father; how I sat upon his knee, and listened to the exquisite modulations of his voice—so soft and lender! l'nr it was his Fun. hisdarling. that awakened all a fnther'slnve. And then I went back, back through a long lapse of years, and saw a tiny coffin—it containe f tho remains of a sister. I felt the burning tears again full upon ray brow, and heard —\ My child, thuu art only left to me !'• Again I looked up i n that pale, stern face—sickness ha d been at work wit h m y life-chords; but its attendant, \Death ermc not, and I was spared. I looked u p in that pale face—the eyes were upturned, an d their lips parted in thankfulness that I had been spared. And then I stood before l»im a disobedient child, about to go from the paternal roof, perhaps forever. I heard the decisive '-never P fall from his lips again, but those lips quivered with conflicting emotions. I knew thnt love and pride were warring for nristcry in his heart. 1 thought of m y mother—her whom I could have worshipped as the purest of earth, had not pride, omnipotent pride, been stamped o n every look and word. Bu t 1 now remembered her as <w.» who had watched over my infancy, nnd I lunged to throw myself in he r arms, n.ti-i lie pressed a*tm tn her heart. Then time the thought that I had rais-ed an impassible barrier between u«, and I wept in very anguish of spirit. And then thoughts of my sister came, and al l regrets were concentrated in that brief hour. I remembered the time when we had played together, the 1 tooks wo hud read, the pleasures shared, and tho luzony of our partim*-; ntnl tb<m tf.*o.vcil that tho adulation of the World had rendered her heart nn unfit shrine of a sister's love. There i s a real luxury in tears. I had m it indulged in then ; and now, why should I nol, when memory was bringing from her vast storrhiiiise the nerumulation of years. I looked upnn my husband, and fur the first time. I thought perhaps I hid been too bruty, that lint for him 1 might have been happy in it fathor-Nr love and council; but I saw his mild blue eyes fixed i n ten- derness upon me, and I threw myself in hi s arms. Tho tears I nowshe-lwere thoso of contrition forthe unworthy thoughts to whieh I had for a moment yielded. Father , mother, sister, all were forgotten. I lived but in his smile; everywhero with hi m was the Eden of my heart. Hid by a c irtain that partially concealed a recess, I stood unobserved by those who thronged thesaloons of the \ United States Hotel.\ I had leisure to ex- amine the familiar faces that met my sight. Man y a Yes, dear reader, my little husband—not the iden- schoolmate was there, nn d many a rival beauty tical'^Little Dan,\ Mrs. Stephens has immortalized, smiled in con-eion-mess of her own lirvlini<--.<.

Whil e he was plung- tog in^agony, I dismounted, and th e quick eye of Capt. Ma y otooiwcdAiic ua L alighted, from my horse. Ho inquired if I was hurt, I answered no—thatuvy horse was the sufferer. ' I am glad i t is not your- self,' replied he;' there is another,' (pointing at th e same time to a steed without a rider, which was standing with dilated eyo gazing at thestrife,) -mount him.' 1 Approached th e horse, and he stood still un- til I pu t my hand upon the rein and patted his neck, when he rubbed his head along side of ine as i f pleased that some human being was about to become his companion in tho affray. Ho wa s a noblo bay, which, had, with a number of others, boenpurohased for th o troup in St. Louis. I bestrode him, and we passed through tho first day unharmed. '• On the second day, at Resuca d o l a Pulma, our troop stood anxiously awaiting for th o signal to be whon last in thi s country, spent several dnys in ex- aming the localities in connection with Dr . Dicker- son, and came to the conclusion that these must be \ old \ formations. If they are indeed tho equivalent of the newer Pliocene, then, according to the estimate of a scien- tific friend at ou r elbow, who has made some calcula- tions as to the probable age of Mt . Etna, which this formation underlies, tho human being to which tho bono in question belonged, may have died some myr- iads of years ago—making him, in tho language of, tho President of the Geological Society of Franco, now in this city, a \ very old gentleman.\ But these ar e questions for those who have more leisure for geological investigations than we; and therefore, though none of tho alleged disooveries of scienco havo latterly surprised us so much as this, wo leavo th o whole subjoet in the hands of the sa- vaus of our country, who, we doubt not, will do it ample justice. No other bones, belonging to the human skeleton, were at tlie same time obtained, in consequence of tho oxtucme danger from the. falling in of the super- incumbent an d overhanging oliifa; but wo under- stand that Dr. Dickei'Son\will return to tho south i n the ooursc of a few weeks, to resume his researches. We shall look with interest for the result, and not the less in consideration of tho fact that ho i s a na- tive cf Philadelphia. He has brought to this city numerous interesting relics taken from tlie ancient mounds, and indicntiTO of a greater advance iu tho arts amongst the older aborigines, tha n obtains at this day with tho present Indian tribes.
