Pleasant drink.

--A correspondent suggests that, instead of the deleterious compounds at present drank with avidity by some of the volunteers, pure fresh water, by the admixture of vinegar and molasses, can be rendered equally as enticing and exhilarating, and that great good would result if it was dealt out at dinner time, if not oftener. It will bring about an innocent excitement, which will make the volunteers ‘"almost fancy themselves at home with their kind, cheerful associates and relatives."’ The drink will enliven during warm weather, and counteract in a great degree the consequences of dry, salty food. It is nearly as good as lemonade when properly prepared.
