An English paper states that an inquest had been held on the body of John M'Lellan. who camo to his death under circumstances of the most shocking description. The body of the unfortunate man presented a spectacle too horrible to describe, the face being entirely eaten away, and tho whole body being one mass of sores. It appeared tho deceased was tho cab driver of a cab and horse, the property of a cab owner at the west end of tho town. One evening he came homo and complained of having a cold. He took some Cruel, and went to bed. On the following day large lumps or swellings began to make their appearance under the jaw and on tho nose, which, as well as tho eyes emit ted a great deal of running. The eyes gradually became worse, and full of holes, and tho nose and jaw broke out into dread, ful sores. Medical aid was called in, but tho gentleman who attended was unable to tell the nature of the disease. Ho was conveyed in a cab to Sir A-tlcy Cooper, who examined him, and pronounced it to be the glanders, caught from r. horse. The deceased's medical Attendant subsequently fell in with his opinion ; but all the reme dies were found of no avail. The unfor tunale man gradually became worse and entirely insensible. In the Fpace of two days his nose fell from his face, and his cyos became like a colander, hoth emitting a thick mucous running. Ho, however, about a quarter of an hour before his death recovered his senses, and stated that he got his death by wiping the horse which was glandered, with his pocket handker. chief, and then incautiusly using tho same to wipe his own nose. Tho jury returned a verdict 'Tliat tho deceased died from glanders accidentally caught from a horse, of which ho was the driver." Hints to Young mechanics The first object of a mechanic, as it should bo that of every one, is to become thoroughly ac quainted with his particular business or calling. We arc too apt to learn our trade or profession by halves to practico It by halves and hence aro compelled to live by halves dio by inches. Study and labor to excel your compote tors, and then you will not fail to command tho patronage of the most discerning and liberal paymasters. Thero is a great vari ety of highly useful knowledge which ap pertains to every branch of business, that maybe acquired by a course of judicious reading. This knowledge, well digested and systematized, constitutes tho ecienco of every occupation. Thus ir yOU aro a carpenter, tho science of architecture fchould be studied with profound attention j if a ship. builder, tho science of navigation and hydrostatics, and the combination of them which will givo tho largest capacity to a vessel with tho least resistanco from tho water, ond the greatest safety in time of danger from tho elements. If you arc a machinist or mill-wright, tho mechanic powers should be well understood ; and if tho machinery is to bo propelled bv steam or water, you should study tho scienco of Hydraulics, anu should havo a perfect Knowtcugo oi tno ciiemica combination of heat and wntor, both in its latent and ac tivo elate, and understand how it happen NOT that it quart of water converted into steam, winch, by a thermometer, is no hotter than boiling water, yet will bring a gallon of water op to tho samo temperature. If you aro n hatter, a dyer, a painter, or a tanner, there is no study so useful as chem istry. Tho fact was known a quarter of a con lury to chemists that gum shellac was in. soluble in water beforo any hatter ever used it to mako watorproof hats. The whole art of giving beautiful nnd durable colors to bodies depends entirely upon lite chemical affinity of such bodies for the col oring material, and the affinity of this lat. tor for the different colored rays of light. We speak undcrlandingly when we say that the tanners and the Public in tho U. States lose millions annually from tho lack of scientific knowledge how best to com bine vegetable tannin with animal gelatin, which is the chemical process of making leather call it by what other names you please. Tliero is a vast amount of knowledge which is now completely useless that ought to bo brought homo to tho -understanding ot every operative in this Republic. Wo love industry and respect all who practise it. Hut labor without study is like a body without a soul. Cultivate and enrich the mind with all useful knowledge, and rest assured that an intelligent understanding will teach tho hands how to earn dollars when tho ignorant cam only cents. AGRICULTURE, "Grains of sand the mountuini make." Maine, with a population less than -100.. 000, last year gave g7G,000 to her citizens engaged in agriculture, out of her public treasury, as a bounty on wheat. A bill was recently introduced into tho Legislature of New-York, appropriating giu.uoo tor the promotion of agriculture and tho household arts. This bill proposes a premium of g500 for the discovery of an efficient remedy for the grain worm, an insect now doing much damage t0 t,e wheat crops in tho north-eastern slates tho formation of a museum containing com plete sets of mincralogical and geological specimens premiums for improved agri cultural implements, nnd superioi crops and last, though not least, it authorizes tho State Board of Agriculture, which it creates, to procure so many copies of the Cultivator," and "Monthly Genesee Far mer, ns there arc common school districts in the State, and furnish one copy of each to each school district, to be used as occa sional class books. Indiana has established a scientifiic and agricultural college. Georgia passed an act ot the last session of her Legislature, to "Incorporate the Board of Agricultural and Rural Economy, of the Stale of Georgia." Massachusetts has undertaken an ao-ri- cultural survey of the Slate; and a nrono- sition was recently submitted to her Leg islature, to give a bounty on wheat. This stale has given a bounty on silk produced by her citizens. The Legislature of Maryland, a few weeks since, had a proposition beforo it to establish a pattern farm and agricultural schools. Maine gives a bounty of 5 cents on each pound of cocoons raised in the slate, and SO cents for each notiml of silk rnin,i i the state. Connecticut gives a bounty of gl for each 100 mulberry trees of five vcars growth, and 50 cents on each pound of reelect sun, the growth of the state. Vermont gives a bounty on silk, of 10 cents on each pound grown in the state. 1 ennsvi.tanu gives a bounty of 20 cents on each pound of cocoons, and 50 cents on each pound of reeled silk, the growth of tno state Tho Congress or the United States propose to give the President tho nnivn, m lease any unappropriated lots in the, District ot Columbia, for the term of ten vears, for tho encouragement of the cultivation of the sugar heel, and tho production of silk. fcliouitl tins policy bo carried out hu ni. State, our citizens will not long continue Bi wreign ureau, and our country will regain her usual prosporily. This is our remedy for tho pressure encourage . duclion.
