LADIES" DEPARTMENT. From the Mother's Magazine, RULES FOR THE MANAGEMENT OF CHILDREN. Multitudes of finely wrought theories for the training and education of children, have been given to the world, and from many of them parents and guardians may derive much help-; while in - adopting others, and bringing them to a practical test, they find tlrft the frainers must have gained little knowledge inrthe school of experience. Thev had contemplafed the thinking, willing, acting, loving, hating child, like a nicely made watch, that only needed to le wound up regularly, to measure accurately the passing hours. The mother, alas, in her first attempt to make an application of the rules prescribed, finds that if, indeed, the mind of her child caine from the Land, of its Maker as a ' perfectly finished machine, it,has been sadly derang ed, r nd some springs :;nd Lands broken, or misplac ed. And how can it be regulated ? The instiu- ment, though fine toned, will often respond discoid, even to a guarded touch. j Some writers who ' have seen and felt the sad effects of the injudicious management of inan'y families, have, in defining a course, to avoid lik results, fallen into an opposite extreme,' hardly less ridiculous, if it is less injurious. Others have' given" a system of training as adapt- I to all, while it is found impracticable for a- ; beyond a certain limit of circumstances JliyV are. however, some general rules and tr There . m-m r in reference to the moral and physicaT'lTaiivtngrjt suggestions. children, that will hold good. They are capable of practical application in all countries, and under all "circumstances. They map be adopted by the a : mother and teacher in the city, and in the country the mother wh ) presides in a palace, and she who is obliged to toil' from morn till night to earn bread for her little ones. The first thing we will mention here is the aecessity of the mother to know well her own heart her disposition, and her liabilities to err in judgment. She must understand well human ' nature, or how can she .mould and balance aright the conduct and character of her child ? If the " mother allows herself to become impatient at tri- flei, and speaks hastily and unkindly to her child, she may be sure that the child will do. so in return. . What affects for good or evil her own mind will have a corresponding influence upon her children Another maxim w e would name in this' connexion is, study we' 1 the dispositions and temperament of the children under your care. They may be various and the course necessary to pursue with one, be of little avail for another. For instance,, one may be impulsive, passionate, frank, but easily discouraged; another apparently easy to control, but far-reaching in his plans, deceptive, and persevering. Xow Ihe treatment -of these must be-various as their . natural tendencies. The passionate child, w hile he ' ! possesses a heart tender and loving, will be pro'vok . ed at times to desperation, or yield to despair, by a word or look. Every feeling of our nature is " strengthened by use, vand how much more keenly sensitive this child will become by being treated harshly, and with unkind words and tone constant ly, reproved for every deviation from prescribed rules. - '.While he must by no means be allowed to indulge in sinful acts and propensities, yet it is ne- ';',: cessary to reprove and punish him with great cau tion and calmness. A storm may thus be avoided, - Vfhich may injure the tender plant, and render it rrior susceptible to future bursts of passion. ; Parents should remember that the temperaments .' and dispositions of their children will live with them in roaturer years. The restless, sensitive, passion- " : ate boy, is but the miniature of the.ixian. He will be the man for action, and will leave unmistakable traces of his deeds. The persevering, artful boy, will be the man who will project and carry into execution schemes that will bless or curse the world. The hesitating, cautious diffident child will not leave those qualities of mind in the nursery or school-room ; nor the vain, thoughtless, trilling one, ' ever lay entirely aside the prosperities of early life. ' ' But they can be pruned and balanced by stern principles, inwrought into the training and teach ing of every day, so that they will form a symmetri cal whole, and give strength and vigor to the char acter. While, if permitedto take their own course, or unwisely cramped and stifled, they will ren der their possessor a monument, of early neglect, . . the pity and scorn of the world. : .'i , '.': : If your mother's mother was my mother's aunt, what relation would your great-grand-father's - "- nephew be to my elder brother's son-in-law ?

GERMAN, CONSTANCY GERMAK BETROTHALS- Constancy among the Germans, is the watch word of manly and womanly honor. " German fidelity r they will exclaim, if they 'see the shadow of a doubt lingering in the heart as to the purity of their intentions. This is especially the case in the intercourse between man and woman. It is dishonorable for a gentleman to make a lady the special object of his attentions for an unreasonable amount of time w-ithout openly declaring their, character and aim. When these have been de clared, and are accepted and requited! by the la dy, they step as openly before the world as they have acted openly and honorably to each other ; they announce that they are betrothed, and by letter invite their nearest friends to the betrothal ceiemony ; for betrothals in Germany are a regu lar ceremony. - In a large family none but the rel atives are presejjt. Before them the parties sol emnly declare that they are betrothed in the sight of God and man, and certain papers to that effect are generally drawn up and deposited in the hands of the parents. The; lady now takes the title of "u bride," and the gentleman that of " la jdegrokmi," and betrothal cards are sent to all friends and ac quaintances, , just as we send marriage puds; and to fill the measure of publicity, it is announced in the public journals that the parties are betrothed. In a German paper -you will find a list of the be trothed as regularly as the list of the married. Ti e marriage may hot follow for years ; it gener ally does in a few months, and I need scarcely add that these betrothals are always looked upon as re ligiously solemn and binding they are the mar riages in heaven ; for yo.u know that the Germans have a proverb which says, " Marriages are made in heaven." A praiseworthy feature, in our humble opinion, is this frankness with which these parties step be fore the world : it is honor bright for them and for all. In American society one may mingle for months in a certain circle, without havirg the re motest idea of the position of the individuals who form that circle, thereby running dangerous risks of wounding feelings, or of having them deeply wounded ; or, what is still more painful, of secret ly placing affections on objects who have none to bestow in return. In the social circles of Ger many a gentleman hastens to introduce a lady as his " bride," that is. his betrothed ; and the lady in turn is quite as ready to introduce. a gentleman as her " bridegroom ;" indeed, she feels more pride in doing this than introducing a husband ; for it is the dawn of her happiness, and early joys are the most enthusiastic. Among us, a lady who would scorn to equivocate on any other occasion, feels bound by the foolish custom of society to utter a downright falsehood in respect to the most solemn relation of life, and tqo often 'enies a contract that heaven liUSLSjjcti jne'. as I'tter denied his Got .-catend"-"- Mm. u4)4. , ' Ladies' Repository. FUTURE HOUSEKEEPERS. many of the young ladies whom we meet with arej to perform the part- of housekeepers, w hen the young men w ho now eye them so admiringly have persuaded. them to become their wives. We listen to those young ladies of whom we speak, and hear them nit only acknowledging but boasting of their ignorance of all housework duties, as if nothing would so lower them in the esteem of their friends as the confession of an ability to bake bread and pies, or cook a piece of meat, or a disposition to engage in. any useful employment. Speaking from our own youthful recollection, we' are free to say, that taper ringers and lily white hands are very pretty to look at with a young man's eyes, and sometimes- we have known the art less innocence of practical knowledge displayed by a vounor Miss, to appear rather interesting than otherwise. - But we have lived long en'ough to learn that life is full of rugged experiences, and that the most loving, romantic and delicate people must : live on cooked or otherwise prepared food, and in homes kept clean and tidy by industrious hands. And for all the practical purposes of married life, it is generally found that for' the husband to sit and gaze at a wife's taper fingers and lily hands, or for a wife to sit and be looked at and admired, does not makp the pot boil or put the smallest pieee of food in the pot.

We take the following from the Bern. Free Press of Chicago, and desire to hold up the character of this noble little fellow before the children and youth of our land as worthy of their admiration and imi tation, lie would rather die than do what be knew to be wrong. We war that there are few who pos sess his moral courage and martyr spirit.-AT Y. Observer. On the 1 1th of August we published an account. of a most fiendish outrage, resulting in the murder of a little boy about ten years old, named Knud verson. His name" was incorrectly printed at the time. The article has been very generally copied, and has justly excited the warmest sympathy in behalf of the little martyr. It will be remembered that a company of larger boys were endeavoring to force the little fellow to go into the garden of Mr. EUton to steal fruit for them,. and on his per sisting to refuse to do so, ducked him in the river, till becoming frightened they ran off, and in spite of his earnest supplications, left him his fate. A few days since we received a letter fronTTsathan C.Ely, Esq., President of the Peter Cooper Fire Insurance Company of New-York, authorizing us to draw on him for ten dollars towards the erection of a suitable monument to the noble little hero; but we have delayed publishing it, that we might see his father and learn more of one who had so beautifully illustrated the principles of Christanity, in which he had been carefully instructed. His father is one of our most worthy and estima ble Norwegian citizens. He is a member of the Evangelical Lutheran Church, of which llev. Paul Anderson is pastor. The little son, though but ten years of a ore, had iyen such clear evidences of piety, he was so intelligent and so consistent in every respect, that he had also been admitted as a' mem ber of the same church. His seat in the Sabbath school was never vacant, and his lessons were always learned well. Such was this noble boy. Shall he have a monument ? A gentleman at our elbow adds five dollars to the subscription of Mr. Ely. Will not the Sabbath Schools of this city take up contributions to rear this monument? Wiil not our benevolent citizens Contribute to carry out the-suggestion of Mr. Cooper? ' Our mite is ready. Never was-christian martyr more worthy of endu ring remembrance. What parent would not pray, ' God grant that I may have such a son !" May we be spared often to take our only darling boy, now an int'.int nestling in his mother's boom, to the tomb of that little Norwegian hero, w ho preferred to die rather than U steal.

Little Kitty, was presently very busily engaged in dress ing and undressing her doll, which occupation, in its oft-repeated arrangements, disarrangements, and rearrangements, appeared to absorb her entire attention. The next day, Kitty, being alone with her mother, suddenly looked up from her doll-tending with the serious question, ' Moder, what do dey study in school besidesf jography ?'

Mr. Editor: In sending my subscription for the Planter, though not in the habit of writing for the public, I have concluded to send you my views in regard to liming. A writer, under the signature of G. F. H.,'says he was unwise enough to fallow for wheat twelve or fifteen acres old of field, light gray soil, covered with broom straw, of which he ap plied one hundred bushels of lime upon two acres, and twenty-five upon one. During the w inter and early in the spring there was a very marked differ ence between the limed and unlimed portions to be seen at a glance a distance off; but as the season advanced, it grew fainter and finally vanished. So at harvest there was no difference between the lim ed and unlimed all sharing the same fate, failing to produce a remunerating crop. May not this be attributed to a bad season ? Probably too dry, to gether with the roughness of the land, no doubt, filled with broom-sedge turf. I verily believe the reason farmers do not succaed any better than they do is that they do not pay that attention to the mode of application, quantity, tc, that they should do, and which is absolutely nedessarv to be sue cessful. It has been said by men of sciencejthat twenty-five bushels of lime to the acre is an abun dance for the first application, and increase the quantity in proportion to the improvement of the sojl. I have not as yet used lime to any great ex tent, nor am I prepared to go into an , analysis of its chemical effects upon this, that or other soil ; but am satisfied from the little experience I have had that it is a permanent improver upon worn-out land when there are no traces of it to be found in the soil. In the year 1850 I limed upon wheat stub ble, in the month "of August, a piece of land, at the rate of fifty bushels of shell lime to the acre. In August,. '51, I fallowed the field for wheat, used Peruvian guano at the rate of one hundred and fifty pounds, putting the same quantity upon the limed portion of my field that I did upon the unlimed, a'id end I see no difference. Indeed, I sometimes thought if there was a difference at all it was in fa vor of the unlimed land. The growth of wheat was a very fine one, though the yieid was not so good. I, like many others, no doubt, being disap pointed in the quick and ready effects of it, "was ready to-conclude that it was not a manure worth applying to a barren and worn-out soil ; but to my surprise it has showed itself upon my present crwp of corn, which follo ws the crop of w heat of '52 ; the corn in growth is greatly superior to the un limed land just alongside the ears jarger, the: tex ture of soii completely cb.7?a'Jr r ."d. 7,-v nhn rx , ., j-m.x .., 1 r t.jangea, a..v its coio; from a grey to. a dark brown. I have ued upon another field, last year fallowed for wheat, linie in connexion with farm-pen litter, rotted w heat straw, fec, about forty busln Is t the acre; seeded the wheat about the fifteenth of October; ploughing the whole in together, and dragged a bush so as not to interrupt the litter, but level the ground. I.The wheat .carr . up badly, owing .to defective seedsj the crop was apparently no better tEah it would have been without the lime. Since, however, I have harvested my wheat, the growth of grass and weeds is a very good one, evidently showing its ac- tion. Although I failed measurably in wheat, I look forward to the day when I shall behold its be nign influence upon tbe corn crop; and I have no doubt if it is judiciously used in connexion with barn-yard and stable manures, its good effects will be more readily seen, and will be as lasting as mother earth, itself, the great source and fountain of . man's sustenance. J. M. H. , AVestmoreland county, Va. From the Southern Planter. BRINING AND LIMING IN PREVENTING SMUT IN WHEAT. Mr. Editor: Confident of the efficacy of brin ing and liming in preventing smut in wheat, I made a communication last fall, through the Planter, set ting forth this remedy, with all the assurance ten or fifteen years 'success could prompt. Another year's contradictory result renders some qualifica tion just and proper. A high laud field of white and red wheat, sown from early in October to the 10th of November, was exempt from smut, so far as observed; A low ground field, sown in red May wheat between the 10th and 20th of November, was very badly diseased, though the seed sown on both high and low land were equally treated and pre pared, by brining and liming. It will be remember ed by many that on and from the 22d of Novem ber, rains drenched the earth till some time in Jan uary, during which time the late wheat came up. Now, though the seed of the smut infesting the grain may have been destroyed by the brine or lime, or the two conjointly, yet the seed of the parasite constantly residing in the earth or plants, in a dor mant state, may have been brought into life and action by w etness of the season, or some latent circumstance favorable to its development on flat land. A neighbor has observed an exemption from the disease where the remedy was adopted, and its very injurious presence where it was omitted, the circumstances in other respects alike. Another neighbor tells me he used the remedy, permitting the seed wheat to remain in brine ten or twelve hours, with entire success, whilst on an adjoining tarm, all remedy being omitted, the crop was griev ously affected. I shall try again. Instead of removing the seed 11 to til ie liming tub as soon as skim med, as has been- my practice, it will remain in brine eight or ten hours. This is a serious evil, and it is hoped the, farmers will Compare notes on the subject. Will some gentleman give the result of the bluestone wash, so highly recommended last summer and fall ? 1 Thomas Meaux. Amelia, Aug. 17, 1833. Cure for Scratches in Horses.

Why. is mercury preferred in thermometers ? Because the range of temperature between its freezing and boiling points is very considerable ; and its expansion within that range, tolerably equa ble. Bronde. Why are spirit thermometers preferable fur mea suring very low temperatures ? , Because spirit never freezes, whereas the low temperature at which it boils, renders it unfit for measuring high temperatures. Why do dogs and otlier animals 2m t out their long mqit tongues in hot weather ? Because, when much hea'ted, they cannot throw ff or diminish their natural covering, and have only the above means of increasing the evapora tion from their bodies. j Why does metal feel cold when touched ? Because, it readily carries off the heat of the body ; all metals being good conductors of beat. Why are 2ersons enabled to remain in a heated oven, wherein meat is baking ? Because of the rarity of the air, its weak con ducting power, and its small capacity for caloric, which explain how a person can exist in so warm an atmosphere. The wool dresses which persons usually wear on such occasions, are also bad con ductors of heat. Why does a drop of water roll about on a red hot iron without evaporation ? Because its surface becomes so highly polished as to reflect all the heat. If the heat be less, the water penetrates the pores of the oxidated iron, and losing its polish is evaporated. Why do not springs freeze ? Because the earth conducts cold or beat but slow ly, aud the most intense frosts penetrate but a few inches into it ; the temperature of the ground, a few feet below i s surface, is nearly the tame all the world over. Why do the Swiss xasanls, when they wish to sow their seed, spread black cloth on the surface of the stwic ? Because it may absorb the sun's rays, and facili tate the melting of the snow. Dr. Franklin, to ex emplify tile effect of the different colors in absorb ing heat, covered snow with pieces of cloth of dif ferent colors at a time when the sun was shining fully upon the snow. Having done so, he observ ed that the snow under the black cloth w as incited first, theji that under the blue, then under the brown, whilst that under the white cloth" was very inconsiderably melted. JfVhjj iaJnjjiulJiliflpb-sfjille over chim ney pots, and slated roofs which have been heutelby the sun ? Because the warm air rises, and its refracting power being less than than that of the colder air, the currents are rendered visible by the distortion of objects viewe through them. Wfiy docs the effect of wind, or motion of the air quicken evaporation ? 1 Because it removes air saturated w ith the moUu ure, and substitutes air which is not, thus produ- cing jiearly the case of the substance placed in a vacuum. . Why do heated sea-sand and soda form glass ? Because, by heating the mixture, the cohesion of the particles of each substance to those of its own kind is so diminished, that the mutual attractions of the two substances come into play, melt togeth er, arid unite chemically into the beautiful com pound called glass. Why are certain bodies called conductors of elec tricity ? Because they suffer electricity to pass through their isubstance. The metals -are" aU conductors ; 'according to Mr. Harris, Phil. Trans. 1827. silver and copper are the best conductors ; then gold, zinc, and platinum, iron, tin, and lead. Well burn ed charcoal and plumbago also conduct. Why does an electrical machine produce flashes and sparks of light, when the plate or cylinder is- turned? c - Because, it is conjectured, of tbe sudden com pression of the air, or medium, through which the electricity passes : it is, probably, always attended by a proportionate elevation 0' temperature, as is shown by the power of the spark to influence pirits of wine, fulminating silver, and other easily inflammable compounds. Bfande. Why will a feather adhire to rubbed or excited sealingioax, and then fall off ? Because it is attracted by, and remains in con tact with the wax, till it has acquired its electri city," when it will'be repelled, and in that state of repulsion, it will be attracted by an excited glass tubei, Why are brass cocks in leaden cisterns corroded at the junction? Because of the chemical effects of the contact of tbe metals. In like manner, the places where solder is applied are liable to depositions from the water. Iron railings are apt to be decayed and disolved, where lead is used to fix them in stone cavities; and where iron is employed in fixing a bronze statue, my friend Mr. Chart trey observes Mr.! Brande informs me that it prevents the acqui sition of the desirable green rust. Why have copper been substituted for iron nails and, pins, in fastening sheetsof copper to ships' bottoms ? Because the galvanic action produced by the union of the two metals, iron and copper, was a great cause of destruction ; and copper nails and pins, although not so strong, are not attended with the same inconvenience. Why is animal electricity also calhd galvan ism ? Because of its discovery by Galvani, by the ac cidental suspension of recently killed frogs, by cop per hooks, to the iron palisades of his garden, when he observed convulsive movements in the limbs of the animals, which no known principle could ex plain. Galvani, at length ascribed these muscular movements to a series of discharges of a peculiar electricity, inherent and innate in living beings. Why does it thunder ? Because of the undulation of the air, produced by the electric discharge just mentioned ; thunder being more or less intense, and of longer or shorter duration, according to the quantity of a'r acted upon, and the distance of the place where the re port is heard from the jkrot of the discharge.
