These engines have been accurately tested, and have shown an economy of tweuly percent. In fuel, and about the tame In oil and repairs. This saving Is effected by letting the steam In and out both sides of the cylinder through large openings removing the pressure from the valve and allow ing no steam to esca,?e or exhaust from the pas ses except from the cylinder alone ; also by re duclag tt?e weight and friction to about half that of the ordinary engines We place the smaller sixes upon an Improved boiler with all the pipes attached, and the whole mounted with small wheels convenient to ship to any part of the country, and to avoid the necessity of an experi enced .-nglnser to start thein, they are all tested before leaving the factory. Reed's Patent Steam Pumps are also coming In to generalu se oi steimboats, In mines, and for supplying boiler*, where they are now giving great satisfaction.

A UNIVERSAL LANGUAGE We iearn fro-a an English periodical that a certai i lingual enthusiast, the Abb* Bonifacio Soto0 Ochando, Director of tba Polytechulo College at Madrid, bad invented a univerihl laoguige. and bad it reedy for qn at any moment. The Abbe believes tbe hu man rae?> to l?a still in it* infancy, destined to long ag?s of pbj?ical and intellectual life, daring wiiich, time will be given for tbe pre paced language to become universal Why not, it is ar,?ued, a unity of language as well as of money, weights and measures * But the Abbe doos cot contemplate a language to be spoken t?very where and by every body. It is to be tb<f particular property of the aru toeracy of leairing?" 1 mean, he says, " a language for *avurt*, or understood by all who have teceivotl a superior education." To have taken one of t?ie present UviDg languages, w uld not bave aa:wereJ the purpose, inas much as all its significations are arbitrary. a*ii hence tho scheme of the Abbe. Some idea of the new language may be gathered from the following particulars : "The alphabet h*- twenty letters, the t*me a? in English?h, q, w, x. c, being omitted The five vowel* remain unaltered, and all the letters are pronounoed ts in French, except a, which lias the 6ound o( our oe. These are represented by characters which remind us of tbe telegraphic alphabet formerly used in Frat.ce, and as none of tbe types have yet reached us, we cannot re-produce them here. Every letter has a special signification, ac cording to its position in the word To give an example of initials only. A initial signi fies always a material thing, unconnected with vegetable or animal life, E, a living body ; I, that which concerns mm materially ; 0, that which concerns man intellectually and intelli gently ; U, that which concern* tbe will ; B, instruction and its analogies , C, mechanical arts, and their dependencies, D, politics : tj, military arts, and ?j on " A little lartber we find . 4 Substantives are always polysyllables ending with a vowel, and are declined by fire cases, placing tbe terms la, le, li, K in before rr after tbe word. Aijsotivea are always pollysyllablee ending with n. and declined by tbe termination, a, t>, i, o u. Plurals of these two are formed by adding tbe letters Verbs are pollysyllables ending with ar, er, or. ir, ur; the five vowels determine tbe kitd of verb, and b e, f, g, j, moods All adverbs end with c , and all prep osition ars monosyllables beginning with a consonant and ending with a vowel The j conjunctions end with 1. and the interjections ? with f, and there ere four articles ? al, el. U, *1.* " The following pre a few extracts from the Dictionary ; A initial, a material thing; A? initial, materia! objects : ABA, initial simple bodies, or elements , Ababa, oxygen; Abade, bydrc gm; Ababi, azote; At>abo sulphur; Ababn, selenium; Abaca, tellurium; Abase chlorine; Abaci, bromine; Abaco, iodine; Abaca, flu orine. And thus it proceeds, with a change of the penultimate letter. Coming to n, we have ?Abana, sine; Abanc, cadmium: Abani, cop per; Abano, lead; Abana, bismuth. It is pointed out that by catting off the radical Aba, tbe final syllable would offer a simple form of chemical symbols '* A French editor assures the world that the new language is " ?asy, clear, rich, exact, eminently philosophical; at once analytical and synthetical; very varied and only child's play for the memory " Bef ?re the new language goes into cpera tion, some successful system of Mnemonic* mu-?t be invented To learn au artificial lan guage, we must first have an artificial memory. Ireec on Farms. There is no country richer in trees than America; their very superabundanceb a pro duc-d e vague impression In the public mind i that they aro supeitiuities, very good for ma ' kin^ lumber, rails, or firewood, but nothing more It seldom occurs to anybody that these cumterers of the ground fulfil an essential and important office in the economy of nature; that regions deprived of woodlands arc almost exclusively barren waste# and doserts, that tr^es exert an equalising influence" upon tho clini ite, that can only bo appreciated by those who have traveled over the burning sands of t^e de?ert, or braved the cold winds from po lar seas Ev.ry one knows, who has been upon our Western prairies, that there the sun', heat in summer is greater, and the winter's cold more intense thau i.i the wooden countries, in the same latitude, even when not influenced by altitude or bodies of waUr. Highly wooded o untries, in a low degree of latitude, are more inhabitable, as far as temperature is concerned, than many of those in higher de gree* that are divested ot trees Where arbo real vegetation is abundant there is always more or lafs moisture in the soil, louring nu period of the year i9 the ground completely dry, 8 j that it is evident that this clas;, ot plants docs not extract mora moisture from the soil than tbe smaller plan's ; while the shade which trees give hinders the evapora tion produced by tbe direct solar rays. Cleared land always suffer* first earing the prevalence of drought, where the drainage i* equal on that and wooded In the, winter, frosts do not penetrate so deep in^o the earth in tho wood* as they do in the open clearing; the soil in the former remains, $yft, while that of the latter is ice-bound fv* a foot or more? and this independent of the layer of leaver and snow. The obse*<stion is a common one, that the woods ar? warmer in winter than the clearings ; and Jo'lug the whole year tbe tem perature of tiir soil is more equal in the form er than ip tho latter. Tracts of barren land suffer the greatest extremes of temperature. In the Arabian desert, in summer, the hom ing simoon sweeps over the saudy plains ; in winter, tba cold northern winds do the same, covering the mountains and hills with snow. This is peculiarly true of that portion, once the kingdoms of Assyria aud Babylon Trees have, to a certain extent, tbe same influence as mountain ranges, in attracting showers of rain ; our own country is an exam ple of this ; in the valley of the Mississippi there aru no extensive elevation; of land , acibuag to attract showers or oondense clouds, with the exception of the trees The ltocky Mountains on the west, and the Alleghanie* on the east, dry the winds frcm both these points by condensing the moisture they con tain so that this valley has to depend almost entirely upon the south and north wind, with a lew points of variation, for the necessary amount of rain. Belts of trees running fr^m east to west would uo doubt intercept the moisture of tbesec ouis Mature has, to some extent, acted in this manner; the belts of tim ber up?q our western prairies generally have this direction. in Europe, plantations of trees are con sidered ^uite essential for protecting the land and crops from sweeping winds; bee?re.* have, in a lesser degree, the same effect. \\ hen we reflect that the inoabit?.nU of countries with a less thermal range than our own consider such protection indispensable, it becomes an absolute necessity that we should adopt meaas to produce a like result Evaporation froia the surface of tho soil must be retarded; a dry wind will, three hours, absorb more than cue run will ia ten, and roturn none ia tba form of dtW- rapid changes which the plants ccmposing our crops undergo are vary injurious ; a certain mean of temperature and m listore, with little variation, being essen tial to the most perfect development of tbo plf nt aid seei.?Ohio Farmsr, Dee. 20.
