Tho following is an extract from an oration delivered by Or. George IV. Itethune before the Literary Societies of Dickinson's College. Tho oration opens with the following fine pas sage : " There is a story told somewhere, of ono who came back, after a long absence, to tho scones of his youth. He had gone forth in early advon. turn to distant lands, and the hope of return had cheered his many years of foreign toil until the noon of life found him drawing near once moro to the only spot that ho ever could call home. Ilis heart boat more and moro quickly as tho mountains around tho village arose in tho blue distance ; thou, as he saw tho spire of the vil lage church, or the well remembered trees grown old hut still greon ; and then he entered tho cheerful Mrcct. .Many a dwelling was fa. miliar, though touched by time ; hut among tho groups about their throshhulds, and those who mot him on the walk, there was not a face that he know, or that knew him. Ho passed on through tho abodes of tho living to tho resting place of the dead; and there ho found graven on stones, many names tint wore written on his soul. All whom ho had hoped to moot again, were gone, or wero buried, or had forgotten him. lie was alone, a stranger in his early home. IIu paused to look around him. There stood the venerable edifice within which his young mind had been trained to learning. There was the green where he had leaped and shouted with his fellows. There flowed the little stream from the shaded spring which had so often slack, ed his summer thirst. He followed it to the path deep beaten in tho sod. Ho stopped and took ono long cool draught; his tears fell on the calm water's face ; ho lifted his hat from his head, breathed a prayer, and departed to return no more." " With somo 6iich emotions does your orator addre&a you now. A score of years has passed .: t. ir. r... ,i uueso academic sliai'cs, dear from a thousand rlneinones of happy youth. They wero then populous with his friend', and llioir classic ox dilations wero directed hy tho kind and parental 8olicitude of teachers to whoso skill, fidelity and gratitude can never make sufficient payment Ho has trodden tho college walls again to-day, andi has seen within them many happy faces in tiw bloom of youth ; but thoso whom ha loved .o greet with frank regard, aro all gone. Komo aro in tho grave ; tho rest widely scattered through a cold world, never to know again the buoyant happiness and careless wealth of affec tion that hero blessed them and him. Hut thanks bo to God ! the fountain of truth at which thoy drank, still pours forth its living waters ; tho path to lUtlll deep beaten hy youthful feet, and I have come to tako ono draught with you ; to send up a prayer to tho father of lights, who causes it to flow and to go my way."

Of the Action of the sails of Cattle Dung. Hero it is wo find ourselves thrown on a sea of opinions, without chart, compass, or ministers to the want of a healthy plant. i utiely with the grey locks and d.n I; ever pilot, if we trust to the conflicting theories The samo is true of tho common salt or tho Bll,,ns on either side. The base spread out which liavo been set up for land-marks and muriate of soda of dung. If it existed in j un tlw fro.un basin below in a gradual slopo light-houses. Let its therefore reader, trust larger quantities it would noison the nlants 1 "I1 which somo of our patty, both ladies and to ourselves, aided by tho little chemistry wo have learned from the precoding remarks auout the composition ot salts. 1 havu endeavored to imiircss on vottr memory, that tho leim salt is verv compiu- 1 : ii . . iii-iisive. out men, 111 encourage one, It is also to be remembered, that salts aro com- pounds of alkalies, earths, and metals with acids. Now the earths, alkalies, metals, may ho united to each of tllu known acids, I 1 .1 . . . , . . 1 (aim tneir name is legion,; yet you may not, oy tuts cnango 01 actus, utter 1110 nature ol , ttic eartii, atiiaii or metal. That always re mains tho same ; every time you change the acid, you alter the chancier of tho salt. Thus soda may bo united to oil of vitriol and form Glauber's salt, or lo aquafortis anil form South American saltpelro, or to muri atic acid and form common tablo salt. Tho sod.t is called tho base or basis of this salt ; . ,s ' ys sotia-you t.o not change its r ,nr!l.i.r In' Miti iwrmrr lit.. ..i.l '!. , . . . . another example : lime 'may bo united to carbonic acid and form chalk, or marble, or limestone, or it may bo united to oil of vitri ol and form plaster of Paris, or to phosphor ic acid anil form bone-dust. Now, in each case, tho haso of thu salt, that is. tlto lime, remains unchanged ; hut, changing tho acid, wo ehango trio nature of tho salt, and oi course its effects will ho different. Now it is plain, that where the haso of the salt re mains the same, that will always act tho same, nut inherent ellecls will ho produced by dtllerent acids. Each base acts always ono way, but each bus an action similar lo every other. Each acid acis also one way, but each has tin action distinct from every other: impress this on your mind. Reflect upon it a moment, and you will perceive that salts prodtico different effects accoiding to tho naturo of their acid. Now this may bo illustrated thus: you tako every day, probably, witli your every meal, common salt, that is. soda, a base, united to muriatic acid. Your digestion and health aro all tho belter for it. You give your cattlu a littlo salt : it docs them good. Suppose now you change the acit! of that salt, leaving soda, its base, in tho samo quantity you daily lake. Instead of tho muriatic, suppose you substi tute tho nitric acid, or, what is tho same thing, supposn you nsu sallpnlro, from Peru, instead of common salt. You need not bo 'tr.i.1 ii,..i ..r... ...... ,t.i : .ir 1 ."". j.... ..uiiiii iuisun juuiaim uiivi ' .VOlir CUltlO Oy SO (lOlng. 0IICat) UNUK, I Y() fu, bultcr fl)r it, ,( rff ' slillR( cooling, opening.

Let us now apply this viow oC tho action oC salts to those contained in catllo dung. In tho first place, we have salts of potash, of sodti, of lime ; theso aro tho most abun dant and active. Then wo have salts of iron, manganese, of clnv and magnesia. These last, existing in small proportion, niay no thrown out ol tho account, homing in mind, however, that, though wo set those aside, a plant does not ; ihey enter equally with tho others into ils composition. Let tis begin with iho sails of potash. It is fount! combined in catllo dung, first, with a vego- ... 1. 1 i .i . , . . . tame acid, mo acid o mould. is a nnur ulo acid, tlto acid ol mould. isher of plants. Secondly, with sulphuric i arid or tho acid of sulphur," called oil of vit- i riol. This is ono of the poisoners, existing i only in small proportion in cowduu": it which it might ho applied. Tho next sails aro thoso of lime, phosphalo tint! sul-! pnatu ol lime, or limn united to sulphuric and and phosphotic acid, forming plaster and j bone-dust. Tho acids here, if ahundantt , 1. 11... .l .'.i 1 , 1 .. woum nave a tieciueii utiu innuence they aro poisoners : hut tho catbonie acid in the carbouaso of lime, is a tiouiisher. Now from tho small quantity in which these all uxist in catllo dung, they act onlv boncficial- 1.. t... .1- .. 1 y. nut 11 you apply a great excess, even 01 camo tiuug, you may uo sure ol an tin favorable result. It will be produced hv the acids of thoso salts which wo have called poisonous. 1 o continue our remarks on tho acids ol sails of dung, it is to ho observed, that they act also upon the soil They decomposo that. That is, they ex tract from tho soil alkalies.or oilier substan 1 ces, like thoso in the original salt. Now ,lullh il)pit,j .7 , ' 1 . . . be. 111 verv small doses in catllo dung, yet, hecatisu of their decomposing action on soil, they con tinually renew themselves, thoy last "till all their acid is taken up to supply tho wants oC growing plains. Let us now, reader, iC you understand how tho acids of the stilts oC dung act, turn to the bases or tho alkalies and metals and eniths of theso sails. What is llioir aclion ? What purpose do they serve in dung appli ed us manure? First, they enter into and form apaitof iho living plant : thoy form a part of ils necess iry food so much as do iho constituents of mould. Secondly, when theso alkalies and metallic bases "tiro let loose, by tho disuniting power of a growing plant, then they act as alkalies upon mould. They I lasteti decay, render mould then moro soluble, fit it to become food for plants. This account of the action of mould and stilts in cattlu dung, may appear lo you reader, long and hard to bo understood. I do request you not to pass it over on that account.

Neycrthe-1 less, in spite of positive orders, the spaniel 1 would frequently sncuk, towaids evening, in to tho apaitmont or his master, and would not bo diiveu from it without tho greatest dif ficulty. Ono evening, having slipped very slily in without being perceived, tho animiil placed himself under his master's bed. ami lemain etl there. Towards morning, the scivant above rofcricd to, onteied tho chamber of Pope. At this moment, the dog suddenly left his post and leaped on tho villain, who was armed with a pistol.

Tho servant thus betiayed by the watchful dog, was sen- leutou 10 loncn ins tile. Tho same dog, shortly after this singular event, exhibited another proof of his remark able instinct. Pope, roposiii" one afternoon in a little wood about twclo miles distant from hi-, house, lost a watch oC great value. no (no not discover lus loss until he had reached home. Two or threo hours had elapsed, and a violent storm was just com mencing. The poet called his dog, and ma king a sign, which Marquis very well under stood, he said, " I have Inst my watch go look for it." At these words'Marqnis de parted, and repaired, 110 doubt, to every spot at which his master stopped. Tho poor animal was so long occupied in search, as to cicato great anxiety, for midnight had arrived, ami ho had not return ed. Wh it was the astonishment of Pope, when fti lisiug in the morning, he opened his chamber door, and thero beheld his faithful messenger, lying quietly, and holding in his month tho costly jewel", w ilh which he had returned perfectly uninjured, mid which was tho moro highly valued by the poet, from its having been piesented to" him by the Queen of England.
