Preservation cf riecli etc.
M. Robert has contrived a method of
preserving animal and vegetable substances
-which is easily managed, cheap, and admits
of tl-.vir external appearance, as well as their
peculiar characters being retained. It con
sist in exposing the partly dried substances
to an atmosphere of sulphnrie acid gas, and
then covering them with a tain mm ot atou
mon mixed with molasses. The flesh of ani
mals that have boon killed by blowing air
into the breast can not be preserved in this
wav. In the first instance the flesh is freed
from, and mrtlv dried in a current of air;
the limbs are' then hung in an air-tight
chamber, so as not to touch; and the sul
phurous acid introduced. The time during
which the meat is left in contact with the
gas depends upon the size of the pieces.

The Following suggestions in the Coun
try Gentleman, by Mr E.J. McCarthy, re
lating to cheap lightning reds meets our ap
probation: "If one human life is saved through the
means of this publication, those who are en-j
gaged in sale of conductors at such exorbi- j
taut prices that but few perchase, should not j
allow themselves to complain, but feel thank- 1
i'ul for the timely hint. If the property con- j
. tained in one barn even, is saved from des-
tructiou by this simple means, the writer will j
feel amply rewarded for hi trouble. j
There being no dispute about the perfect :
safety of conductors to life and property, the j
only questions to be considered are, which j
are the safest and cheapest lnere is no!
person familiar with the subject who will not
say that soft iron rods in one continuous
length, projecting to a sufficient height above
the highest point of a building, and termina
ting in a well or cess-pool, or in damp earth,
are the best electrical conductors knoYvn.
Now, instead of erecting a single rod from
the center of the building, and running over
the roof, with faucv points and colored insul
ators, such as are hawked about and sold
at high prices, put up as many as you have
chimneys at least, and one at each gable end
or liigh projecting point of every out build
ing. To do this cheaply,, purchase a coil of
quarter-inch iron -wire, and as many small
staples as may be required; saw on as many
pieces of bone of proper length and size,
with a hole of suitable dimensions for the
wire to pass through and with a ladder and
the help of one man, a person of ordinary
ingenuity can put up a dozen rods in half a
day, at tho cost of one cent a foot. Who
will run the risk of life and property, when
perfectly safe conductors can be erected for
less than a dollar a piece, including the cost
of putting them up?

The tax list in every instance is greater

The Standard says:
The gross amount of taxes for 1S56, was
$3S0,437.4G, and for 1857, 490,168.31
To this is to be added the tax on bank stock,
which in 1856 was $14,1S2.33 and in 1857

Tho difference between the gross and nett
amounts given, is accounted for by the com
mission allowed the sheriffs. The total
nett income, therefore, from public taxes
for the year 1857, is $491,411 21; or $135,
395 05 more than in 1856. We have not
included, however, in the nett tax for 1857,

The majority for the democratic candidate for

Both branches of the Legislature are democratic
by large majorities. This is a mortal blow to the
two synonymous isms in that state, black republi

by a small majority. Later advices state that
Chase is elected by a few votes.

Query. If banks, the shinplaster institution
that give rags to people wl ile the government holds
on to the specie, (as the know nothings py) are
democratic creations and the tools of designing
politicians, how hajpens it that not more than ono
third of the banking stock, in this state for in
stance, is owned by democrats? And further, how
comes it that very nearly all our banks are officered
by the most virulent know nothings in their res
pective communities, bitter, poisonous, snakish,
Pope hating, foreigner-hunting, democrat despis
ing know nothings? These queries are just about
on a par with the declaration that the democratic
party is responsible for tho present monetary diffi
culties. The one is as legitimate an argument as
the other is a false assertion, and neither is worth
the space occupied in a "respectable journal. No
one but a demagogue or a tool wculd use either ot
them for political capital; and m either case,
whether knavish demagogue or addlepatc, no sen
sible man can be iufluenced or deceived by such
1837 vs. 1857.

That there is a vast deal more of hard money m
the country in '57 than there was in '54 no one
will deny. The influx of gold from Califoroia has
been steady and continuous since 1850. A writer
upon this subject says: "The proportion of specie
has never been, but once, so large for 3G years as
it has been during the last two or three years and
it is perhaps larger now lhan it has ever been be
fore." Nor has the paper circulation kept pace
by many millions with the increase and enlargement
of the specie basis within the past seveu years.
