HOUSEHOLD RECIPES. CEMENT FOR BROKEN CHINA, GLASS, ETC.Dissolve an oz, of gum acacia in a wineglassful of boiling water; add plaster of Paris sufficient to form a thick paste, and apply it with a brush to the broken parts. Being nearly colorless, it is better than liquid glue or other cements.

CLEAN BRASSES, BRITANNIA METAL, TINS, COPPERS, ETC., with a mixture of rotten-stone, soft soap and oil of turpentine mixed to the consistency of stiff putty. The rotten-stone should be powdered very fine and sifted, and a quantity made to last for a time. The articles should first be washed with hot water to remove grease; then rub the metal with the mixture, inixed with a little water; then rub off briskly with a dry clean rag or leather, and a beautiful polish will be obtained

To Kill Cockroaches.-A teacupful of wellbruised plaster of Paris, mixed with double the quantity of oatmeal, to which add a little sugar (this latter is not essential); then strew it on ihe floor or in the chinks where they frequent.

CHAPPED HANDS. --Mix of a lb. of unsalted hog's lard which has been washed in water wi:h the yolks of two new-laid eggs and a large spoon. ful of honey. Add as much fine oatmeal as will work into a paste.

ALL FLANNELS should be soaked before they are made 11p, first in cold, then in hot water, in order to shrink them. Flannel should always be washed with white soap, and in warm, but not boiling, water.

PATENT-LEATHER Boots require to be wiped with a wet sponge, and afterward with a soft dry cloth, and occasionally with a soft cloih and sweet oil, blacking and polishing the edge of the soles in the usual way, but so as not to cover the patent polish with blacking. A little milk may also be used with very good effect for patentleather boots.

GREASE-Spots from cotton or woolen materials of fast colors. Absorbent pastes, purified bullock's-blood, and even common soap, are used, applied to the spot when dry. When the colors are not fast, use French chalk, fuller's earth or pulverized porter's clay, laid in a layer over the spot, and press it with a very hot iron.

To PŁEVENT THE HAIR FROM FALLING OFF, sponge the head lightly every day with cold tea.

MARROW POMADE FOR THE HAIR.-One quarter of a lb. of marrow, 4 oz. of lard, 6 oz. of castor oil, 6 07. of salad oil, 1 d. of palm oil. Scent the whole with essential oil of bergamot or almonds, etc. Melt the lard well together, then strain it, and strain the marrow. Mix all well together until nearly cold, and put in pots.

FOR WHITENING THE HANDS.--Take a wineglassful of eau-de-Cologne, and another of lemon-juice; then scrape two cakes of brown Wind. sor soap to a powder, and mix well,

To WHITEN LACE.- Lace may be restored to the original whiteness by first ironing it slightly, and then folding it and sewing it into a clean linen bag, which is placed for twenty-four hours in pure olive oil. Afterward the bag is boiled in a solution of soap and water for fifteen minutes, then well rinsed in lukewarm water, and finally dipped in water containing a slight proportion of starch, The lace is then taken from the bag and stretched on pins to dry.

.

FURS AND WOOLENS PRESERVED FROM MOTHS. - Place pieces of camphor or tobacco-leaves in the drawers or boxes where furs or other things to be preserved from moths are kept, sewn up in linen bags. They should be well shaken and beaten betore putting them away:

To CLEAN KID GLOVES.-To clean kid gloves, have ready a little new milk in one saucer and a picce of brown soap in another, and a clean cloth or towel folded three or four times. On the cloth spread out the glove smooth and neat.

Take a piece of flannel, dip it in milk, then rub off a good quantity of soap to the wetted flannel, and commence to rub the glove toward the fingers, holding it firmly with the deft hand. Continue this process unuil the glove, if white, looks of a dingy yellow, though clean; if colored, till it looks dark and spoiled. Lay it to dry, and the operator will soon be gratified to see the old glove look nearly new. It will be soft, glossy, smooth and elastic.

TO CLEAN Hair-BRUSHES AND COMBS.-Dissolve a piece of soda in some hot water, allowing a piece the size of a walnut to a quart of water. Put the water into a basin, and, after combing

ut the hair from the brus es, dip them, bristles downward, into the water and out again, kceping the backs and handles as free from the water as possible. Repeat this until the bristles look clean; then rinse the brushes in a little cold water; shake them well, and wipe the handles and backs with a towel, but not the bristles, and set the brushes to dry in the sun or near the fire, but take care not to put them too close to it. Wiping the bristles of a brush makes them soft, as does also the use of soap.

To Revive OLD Crape (mourning).-- Place a little water in a tea-kettle, and let it boil till there is plenty of steam from the spout; then, holding the crape in both hands, pass it to and fro several times through the steam. Stains are removed from mourning-dresses, such as bombazines, cloth, crape, etc., by rubbing them with a sponge dipped in a mixture composed of a handful of fig-leaves boiled in two quarts of water till reduced to a pint.

PAINT. - To get rid of the smell of oil-paint, plunge a handful of hay into a pail full of water, and let it stand in the room newly painted.

To REMOVE PAINT FROM SILK OR CLOTH.If the fabric will bear it, sharp rubbing will frequently, entirely remove a newly-made paintstain ; but if this is not successful, apply spirit of turpentine till the stains disappear.

FOR CLEANING SILKS. --Four oz. of honey; 6 oz. of soft soap; 1 pint of whisky or gin. To be well mixed together, and rubbed on the silk with a soft brush on both sides; afterward to be rinsed through a tub of soft water, and then through hard water. Dry it on a horse, and iron it with a tolerably hot iron.

The Philadelphia Public Ledger has issued, for private circulation only," its usual excel. lent and tasteful ALMANAC, and it is in order to wish Mr. Childs, its publisher, the many and happy New Years which he deserves.

It has been achieved by enterprise and energy, controlled by sound principles and an undeviating respect for all things that are truly respectable.- New York World, Jan. 12.
