PHYSICAL EDUCATION ATHLETIC EXFRI ISK. We are glad to see the youth? of Harvard beginning agiin their rowing matches The smooth surface of the silver winding river Charles is now frequently dotted witn their long light clippers, crawling over the water with their six oars like so umny aix-legged cat erpillars. Hardly any out-of-door exercise is more attractive and beneticient to men than this. The fresh exhilaration of the free air and pleasant scenes through which the rowers on a river glide are worth a oart load of health *? panaceas." It would bo well if the youth of our city took more advantage of our water fa tilities tor pleasant exercise The 4th of July regatta* have turned the attention of some to it. and if it oould be much increased the river Charles might become a fountain of life-giving vigor to our worn, hardthinking brains. In England, the Thames is dotted with the 44 four oars," and *' six oars.

Air. Webster once said of an eminent Boston Ian. who is still living, that *'it was a prodig ious pity he had no single taste whose gratitioa tion would take him out of his hot-air library Into the open air." Webster's own massive mental wear oould never hnve been mariuf:i?- I tured except by a sound mind in a sound body, *? mun.i tana in cor port" There has been some discussion lately about his using to- | baeco. lie used it. but only for a very short ( season. But what he did use permanently, as is well known, was out-of-door exercise in every form. Even horse-back riding, which was net peculiarly favorable to his habit of body, was nevertheless quite a favorite exercise with him. even till an advanced period of life. Another of our Massachusetts great men. John Quiucy Adams, used to take very long walks before j breakfast, when he wns in Congress, and in the dead of winter would have the ice of the Poto mac cnt to enjoy his daily river batch. Frederick the Great u?ed to declare that ' nature evidently in ten led mankind for pos- : ttflions." because she had exorcise so in- 1 dispensable to the race, but her only mistake ; was that she had not arranged to have men ! born on horseback. It was doubtless one very great cau?e of the ! intellectual and martial supremacy of the class it* Republics that they were composed of phy sically vigorous citizens. Everbody was athle tic; everybody wrestled, or ran, or boxed. The 1 Olympic Stadium and the Campus Martiu* fed the lite-springs of their respective States. There was no beauty which was not well developed and vigorous. It was as much a part of the daily routine for the youth to put their mus cles into mimic battle as it is with us to put our teeth in play at dinner. We as a people are said to be degenerating in physique. There is still, however, much dif- I tereuce in bodily proportions and development . in favor of Bostonians as against New Yorkers We trust the difference may be increased, and that the Athens of America may be the Athen ian iu the rugged and healthy stature of its children, no less than in eareful culture of their ' minis.?Boston Travtiltr. Man*front Superstition. A ease of #yper?tition in this county has com? toour knowledge, which for ignorance and moral turpitude, exceeds the darkest pages of the History of Robarkisin or even Salem Witch- i craft, and is a disgrace to the boasted iutelii- 1 gence of the " Garden of the Keystone State," I with her college, academies, seminaries, com- j mon schools and churches. The facts connect ed with this extraordinary case of superstition, as furnished by an attentive and reliable cor- i respondent, are substantially as follows: On Sunday last, the good people of Erihrata and vicinity were startled and shocked ly the i inlelligenco that the remains of a certain Miss , Sophia Bauman, who died about nine yeura ufo. had been exhumed on that day by two inou hired fjt the purpose by the friends of the de ceased Curiosity was naturally excited and speculations started as to tho cause of such an open desecration of the ashes of the dead on the quiet of the Sabbath; and upon inquiry of some A the relatives our correspondent learned that i the young lady alluded to nad died of consump tion and that since her death two of her sisters. > her mother, and two brothers had died also of the same disease. In all thee cases a heredi tary taint was strongly marked, and no doubt was leA upon the minds of physicians and all sensible persons as to the cause of their death ; | but the opinions of physicians were set aside by the incursions of ignorance and superstitution, under which the belief was seriously enter taiued and acted upon, that, by some hocus- ! pocu?, the winding-sheet of the corpse had got j into her mouth, aud that by a continual suction (the modus operandi of which was only known to the spirit*) she had actually drawn the other fire members of the family after her ; and that unless this winding-sheet was speedily removed j trom the mouth of the oorpse she would, in like manner, cause the premature death of the whole connection ! Incredulous as a belief in 9uch a monstrous | 'nperstition in this enlightened age may appear, it is nevertheless true; for. according to previ ous arrangement, the hired resurrectionists <? >mtnencea operations on Sunday morning. The earth was removed, the coffin brought to the surface, and the lid removed under the dir ection of a committee of inspection; but to their astonishment no winding sheet was found there 1 ?the poor deluded creature-* having forgotten. Ja the xeai of their superstition, that the last : *hred of a piece of bleached muslin would rot * way long bafore the expiration of nine yean' With disappointment depicted in their counten ance* the committee caused the remains to be ?juickly and quietly ru-interred. and thon sought tueir respective houies again to meditate upon the doctrine of spooks and goblins and sucking | >r|?sea '?l^sur*ister Erprrts.

A Dream Fri.Fii.iBD.?Zadock Hubbell, of Westchester. county, New York, communicates to the Phrenological Journal his remarkable experience in dreams, in which he excels Joseph of old. TV hen a boy, some fifteen or twenty J ears of age. he dreumcd that he wan in a strange city in trouble, having spent all hi" money aud to add to his distress his boot npped from the sole ; but while he walked alone he felt some thing collect between the sole of one boot and tho bottom of his foot, and found it to U? a quantity of money, partly in the snmll . p*nish Coiii, but chiefly in pieces about half as large as six cent pieces, with three straight marks on one side and a star on the other Mr. ilubbell was so much impressed with tho singular abearance of this unknown Coin that he retained a vivid recollection of it. Last fall whii. lUnerating as a temperance lecturer, he visited Newark, where he had never been be fore. and there every circumstance of his droim occurred to him, with the exception that tho cuius were placed in his hat instead of his boot after his temperanco lecture. He recognised the three-cent pieces at once as the strange coins of his dream, though the resemblance had never beiore occurred to him. He says. al*>. that the streets of Newark were familiar from the recollections of his dream, and yet he had never before been in them Mr. Hubbell is anxious to know how he got this vision ?o long betore its corresponding reality. The Growth of Pearls.?Tho late dis coveries of pearls in New Jeney have revived the old discussion as to the causes of their growth. The best settled scientific opinion ap peers to be, that they are a diseased, purulent secretion of the shell-fish, originating in a wound, and reaching their full size in about "?even year*, at which period they become fatal to the animal, and thereupou lose their worth and lustre. It baa generally been supposed that some minute substanco. Fuch as a grain of sand, having become lodged within the shell of the creature, produces irritation, like a pebble in one s boot, and being unable to get it out, the tormented animal luakes the best of the diffi culty by covering it with a calcareous excre lion. ?KL'unuU* piercing small holes in the shell of the oyster and then restoring it to its original bed But the experiment, on being Tk unauoce**fu' iQ producing pearls, ihe Chinese, however, manage to grow them by introducing into the shell a thread of fine silk upou which is strung a small bead of mother-of-pearl.
