The California Farmer, published at Sar Francisco, gives an account of a curious spe cimen of mechanical ingenuity which hat puzzled the mind* of not a few of the hombre; of that ilk It seems there is in a show win dow in W ashington street, Sin Francisco, a clock which is not a clock, but which indi cates tiuie as correctly a* any clock Some are of opinion that it is worked by magne tism, as there is no indication of cog or wheel about it; others swear the "speriu of just men made perfek" put and keep the hands in motion; while others imagine they oan sec through the whole contrivance?which, by the way, is only a pane of glass and a pair of hands?and declare the mechanism is con cealed in the latter. It is claimed to be a genuine California invention, and one thai can't be beat anywhere. The Alia California gives the annexed description of this certainly remarkable time keeper: Upon a flat surface of glass. three feet square, suspended from an iron traverse rod by slight brass hooks in the window, is paint ed a regular clock dial, like the face of any large clock. In the centre of the time circle is a small hole through the glass, in which it inserted a email pin, as large, perhaps, as a common pin. This pin confines two large hands to the painted dial; and here the me chanism, if any there bo, apparently ceases. This clock, without machinery, keeps the most exact time, and indeed is quite a chro nometer for regularity ; the hands, which are about afoot in length, moving with exouisite precision around the dial, noiseless and true. By what principle or invisible power this clock performs its duty, better guc.-sers than we must decide. The glass is perfectly trans parent, precluding the possibility of conceal ing any mechanism within the place, if such a thing were indeed possible, while the posi tion ot the plate of glass upon which this won derful article is placcd is such as to show at a glance that no external or separate influence is at work upon the instrument, The hand*, which are of brasfi. are not of sufficient site to hold any machinery or works largo or strong enough to carry them with such nicety, though a slight bulging in the end of the mii ute hand, with a screw or two of small and delicate workmanship, leads us to suppose some secret power at work there. The hands may be set to twining as everybody has seen the needle of a ship's compass fly around when the instrument is moved violently; and as the needle soon settles quietly back to the north, eo the hands of this singular time keeper gradually refix themselves to the ex act hour and minute when left to themselves. When undisturbed, the point of the minute hand may be plainly seen to move at second intervals, like the beating of a pulse. Mr. Jordon states that this iuvention is the result of many months of severe study; that it is a purely Calit'ornian invention, and the work all performed and the clock made in his shop in Washington street. The principle is entirely new, and he believes hitherto unknown in the world. We await the solution of this inter esting mechanical ridd'.e with great earnest ness. Smart Chili>??n.?A writer in Blackwood's Magazine thus dis^onraoa tbn r? trying to stick "book larnin in the heads of children while they are yet '? babies " How I have heard you, Euscbius, pity the poor children ! I remember your looking at a group of them, and reflecting. ' For of such is the Kingdom of Heaven;' and turning away thoughtfully and saying, ' Of such is the king dom of trade.' A child of three years of age with a book in its infant hands is a fearful sight! It is too often the death-warrant, such as the condemned stupidly looks at?fatal, yet beyond his comprehension. What should a child three years old?n-iy, even five or six years old?be taught' strong moats for the weak digestion make no bodily strength. Let there bo nursery tales and nursery rhymes I would say to every parent, especially every mother, sing to your children : tell them pleasant stories ; if in the country, be not too careful lest they get a little dirt upon their hands and clothes; earth is very much akin to us all, and in children s out-of-door plays soils them not inwardly. " There is in it a kind of consanguinity be tween all creatures; by it we touch upon the common sympathy of our first substance, and beget a kindness for our poor relations, the brutes. Let the children have a free, epen air sport, and fear not though they make ac quaintance with the pigs, the donkeys, anl the chickens?they may foim w<<rse friend ships with wiser-looking ones; encourage fa miliarity with all that love to court them. There is a language among them which tho I world's language obliterates in the elder* It is of more importance that you should make your ohildrcn loving than that you shoull make them wise?that Is, book-wise. Above all things, make them loving ; then will they be gentlo and obedient; and then, also, pa rents, if you become old anl |>oor, these will be better than friends, and will never neglect you. Children brought up lovingly at your knees will never shut their doors upon you. aud point where they would have you go " One ok thb Horses ? ? E. M." of Belcher town. writes to the Amherst Express about a very intelligent horse, of which ho is the owr - cr. The following incident, among others. 1 illustrates the matter : j "One day last week he was driven a few miles out of town, and on his return, some time in the afternoon, wa? fed with meal and cut feed as usual, but for his supper he had nothing but dry hay, whioh did > ot agree very well with his senso of right, after travelling twenty miles with a load, through snow drift?. ! However he kept his th<ugnts to himself till we were out of the way for the night; then sundering his rope in some way, he p&saed through the cow stable, crossed tbe barn floor and the carriago room to the granary, at the further end of tho barn, some forty feet where he had often seen us get the meal for him ; he there found two bags ot meal, standing by the bin, tied up, but the top one being too heavy for bis purpose, he threw it aside, and after examining the other bag, which weighed be tween fifty and sixty pounds, he took it in his teeth, and carried it about twenty feet, to a clean spot in the barn floor. Finding it diffi cult to untie it, he cut a hole in the side, and ehook out about a peck of meal, and ate what he wished ; and seeing the cow (the only com panion he has there long winter nights) look ing with a longing eye at his pile of meal, he took up the bag again, and carried it about ten feet further to the manner, ani shook out some more meal for her. They were found in the morning feasting together ry The first newspaper printed in North America was printed in Boston, 1690. Only one copy of that was known to be in existence. It was deposited in the State Paper Office in London, and was about the site of an ordinary aheet of letter paper. It was stopped by tbe Government. The Boston News Letter was the first regular paper It was firut issued in 1704, and was printed by John Allen, in Pud ding lane. The contents of some of tbe early numbers were very peculiar. It had a speech of Queen Anne to Parliament, delivered one hundred and twenty days previously, and this was the latest news from England. In one of the early numbers there was an an nouncement that by order of the General of North America, the post between Boston and New York setsout once a fortmght.

Scarcely had he Te oorered from the injuries then reoelved, when he again narrowly escaped death, from ana.? ci lent which oocmrred to tbe train while ha was coming East He was laid op for ?m.e months at theGirard House, In Philadelphia, on account of the injuries receired. At soon as sufficiently recovered, he took passage for Pittsburg Some gentlemen who intended to go in the same direction, purposely delayed their departure, in order to avoid participa ting in his apprehended misfortune* But as it singularly occurred, Mr. Watson's train met with an accident after proceeding a few miles, slight indeed, but sufficient to detain tho train for several hours; and before arri ving at Hiirrisburg. a second accident occur red, with a detention of 24 hours. In tbe meantime, the cautious gentlemen before al luded to, pursuing their j>urney, ovarUx k Mr. W. and unwittingly got on the same train, for Pittsburg. Before reaching its destina tion. however, the fated train was thrown en tirely from the track, by the breaking of a wheel. Tbe passenger? alighted, and. great ly to their oonsternation, found that Mr W (Jonah) was on board. Thereupon the whole company became greatly exasperated, and re spectfully informed the conductor that it would be utterly impossible to proceed in his company. Our informant states that Mr. W has succeeded in reaching Pittsburg, and is recovering from bis contusions, at the Monon gahela House Mr. W declares that once more at home, he will remain there ?Jour nal of Commerce.
