." USEFUL RECEIPTS.

TO PICKLÉ WALNUTS. Prick the walnuts, and lay them in salt and water for about three days ; then take them out, and dry them on a sieve. When you put them into the jars, pour over them cold vinegar, with all-spice and ginger. They will be ready in about two weeks. If, at any time, the walnuts are wanted quickly, you had better take off the covering of the pot till they are tender, which will be very soon.

TO MAKE MOCK MADEIRA WINE.

To eighteen gallons of water, put fifty-four pounds of fine moist sugar; boil it for half an hour, and skim it well. When cold, put to every gallon one quart of new ale out of the vat, and let it work in the tub two days; then put it into a cask, and when it has done fermenting, put to it one pound of sugar-candy, six rounds of jar-raisins, two bottles of brandy, and two ounces of isinglass dissolved in some of the wine. Stop it down, and let it stand one year in the cask, then bottle it...

N.B.--Some prefer setting the sugar and water to work in one vessel, and the ale in another, for two days, and then mixing them to put into the cask.

TO PICKLE CAULIFLOWERS. Take the closest and whitest cauli. flowers you can get, pull them in bunches, spread them on an earthon dish, and lay salt all over them. Let them stand for three days, to bring out all the water; then put thein in carthen jars, and pour boiling salt and water upon them: let them stand all night, and then drain them on & hair-sieve. Put them into glass jars ; fill up the jars with vinegar, and tic them close down with leather.

RAISIN WINE. Put seven pounds of DTalaga or Smyrna raisins to every gallon of water; let the water and fruit stand in an open vessel five or six weeks, stirring it daily ; then press it off; and put it into casks ; lay the bung lightly on the barrel, till the fermentaa tion is subsided, then drive it in tight, and put one quart of French brandy to every twenty-two gallons.

TO PICKLE RED CABBAGE. Get the finest and closest red cabbage you can, and cut it as thin ag possible ; then take some cold vinegar, and put to it two or three blades of mace, a few white pepper-corns, and make it pretty thick with salt. Put the cabbage into the vinegar as you cut it. Tie it close down with a bladder and a paper over it, and it will be fit for use in a day or two.

TO PICILE ONIONS. Peel the smallest onions you can get: throw some salt over them, and let them lie to drain for a few days ; then put them into cold vinegar, with a handful of salt in it. Tie them down close.

TO PICKLE FRENCH BEAN8. Get the beans when they are young and small; then put them into a strong salt and water for three days, and stir them up two or three times tach day; then put them into a saucepen, with vine-leaves (if you have them handy), both under and over them: pour on the same water as they caine out of, cover them close, and set them over a slow fire till they are a fine green; then put them into a hair-sieve to drain, and make a pickle for them of vinegar: boil it five or six minutes, with a little mace, allgoice, long pepper, and a race or two of ginger sliced; then pour it hot lipon the beans, and tie them down with a bladder.

TRANSPARENT SOAP. Take a glass phial, and half fill it with shavings of Windsor or curd soap; fill the phial with the best spirits of wine; put it near the fire until the soap be dissolved; then pour it into a mould of any shape you please ; and you will have for sixpence

yet.

if removed by such tenant, must be replaced before his departure, or he becomes liable to an action for waste.

A tenant may remove erections and utensils necessary for trade, as brewing utensils, furnaces, coppers, fire engines, cyder-mills, vats for green and hot-houses, or a barn erected upon the preises upon blocks of timber, notwithstanding there be a covenant to leave all buildings which then werè or should be erected upon the premises in repair ; for such covenant only includes all buildings annexed to and become part of the reversicnary estate. • The articles removable must, howtever, have previously been put in by the tenant; they also must be removed within the term, otherwise they become a gift in law to the reversioner.

In a case where a tenant had erected a barn upon the premises, and put it upon patteris and blocks of timber lying upon the ground, but not fixed either in or to the ground; and upon proof that it was usual in that county to erect barns só, in order to carry them away at the end of the term, a verdict was given for the defendant. The decision was, however, founded upon the custom of the county.

A man selling a house, where there is a copper or a brew-house, and where there are utensils, unless thete were some consideration given, and a valuation set upon them, it has been held that they will not pass. In a case where the defendant had

se where the defendant had taken down two sheds, called Dutch barns, which he had erected during his term, Lord Kenyon observed, “ If á tenant would build upon premises demised to him a substantial addition to the house, or add to its magnifi. cence, he must leave his additions at the expiration of the term, for the benefit of his landlord: but the law would take the most favourable constructions for the tenant, where he had made necessary and useful erections for the bencfit of his trade or manufacture, and which enabled him to carry it on to more advantage; it had bean held so in the case of cydermills, and in other căses, and he

should not narrow the law, but hold erections of this sort made for the benefit of trade, or constructed as the present, to be removeable at the end of his term.”.

But it was determined, that a tenant in agriculture, who erected, at his own expense, and for the more necessary and convenient occupation of his farm, a beast-house, carpenter's shop, fuel-house, cart-house, pumphouse, and fold-yard wall, which buildings were of brick and mortat, and tiled, and let into the ground, cannot remove the same, though during his terrn, and though he there by left the premises in the same state as when he entered.

Ornamental marble, plet glasses, hangings, and even wainscots, fixed only by screws, and chimney pieces, are held to be removeable, if put up by the tenant during his term."

In general, whatever a tenant has put up in a house for his convenience, he may remove, if done within the term, except such things as cannot be removed without injury to the premises.

Payment of Rent and Taxes: Rent for tenements let from year to year, is commonly due at the four yuarterly festivals, viz. Lady-Day, or March 25th; Midsummer-day, or June 24th; Michaelmas-day, or September 29th ; and Christmas-day or December 25th.

In general, however, a tenant need not pay his rent until it be demanded on the premises.

Every quarter's rent is deemed as a separate debt, for which the land lord can bring a separate action, or distress for non-payment.

Where a tenant occupies any place by a verbal agreement only, it any dispute arise respecting the rent, the landlord may, in a court of law, recover a reasonable rent for the same. ·

The landlord himself is the person most proper to demand rent; if he employs another person, he must be duly authorized by letter or power of attorney, or demand may be objected to.

If a landlord wishes to take advantage of a re-entry for non-pay
