The quesiioa of the fisberies i being first considered. To Preserve Leather. A writer in the New York Time say the true tra; to treat leather of aa kind, if tbere isdirt on the surface, is t remove it with a wet cloth and soa suds. The leather does not requir drenohiug and saturating with water The surfuco simply needs to ba cloanec Thon, aa f o 'ii as the molture has dis appeared, apply the oil, wbich should b warm. The leather also should be warm when the oil is applied, and should b kept in a warm room until it has drice -in thoroughly. If the interior of th leather ba oooupied with oil water can not enter. There is but little danger o gettiDg too much oleaginous material i the leather. To givo the surface bcautiful gloas, and to exclude grit anc to prevent the leather from appeariog greasy to the touch, apply a coat o leather varnish, matlu of shellac anc alcohol. A half pouud of shellao gum put in a bottle with an ounco ot fiue lamp-black, and one ounoe of gum camphor, and a pint of good alcohol, o euough to cover the gum, if corked tigh and kept in a worm place for a few day will make a cheap and excellent varuis! for leather. But tho interior must b kopt filled with oil, or the varnish wil teud to render the leather hard anc rough. If coarse boots bo kept wel oilod and coverod with a coat of thi kind of varnirih, the leather wi'l remain soft nnd pliable, and will exclude water neaiiy as effectually aa India rubber.
