From the statements made, it appears that the growth of the nails is aiorerapiJ in cbtldreu than adults, and slowest in the aged It goes on more promptly in Sum mar than iu W inter, so that the same nail which is renewed in one hundred and thirty-two days t iu Winter, requires only oiw hundred and six- j teen in Summer?a fact depending on the "vis ; vitalis,"' which seems to be proportioned to it . The increase of nails of the right hand is more \ rapid than for the left It diners, also, for the ' UiOereut fingers, and corresponding with the length of the tinger being most rapid for the middle tinger, nearly equal for the two either side of ibis, slower for the little fingers, aud ; ?lowest for the thumb. The growth ot the hair is well known to be much accelerated by frc- j quent cutting. It forms more rapidly by day ! than at night, and in hot seasons than in cold. A Good Hit.?While Miss Ilenn was play ing ? Camilla." at Detroit, the audience aud the actors were much disturbed by the barking and bowling of a dog in the vicinity of the theatre, and this howling became excesaive during an ! effective scene; at last, ? Camille," in declining an interview with a visitor, thus addressed her ! maid : " Tell the Count he need not wait. I am ! not well, and oannot go out to-night; and stay ?one moment Find some one to hang that | dog " The addendum airs the Free Press, ; was given in a lower tone of voice, bat was dia tiaetly audible and gave rise to a eheer which overoaaae even the gravity of tb? actnv for -JnJT?

The daughter married unfortunately and her patrimony was soon thrown away by her spend thrift of a husband The sons were no more fortunate; and two of them died of dissipation and in almost poverty.

The Wash uigton Art Association was organized some eighteen months since. Dr. Stone, the sculp t. r. is President, and it comprises among the members" most of the men of wealth and dis tinction in the city, and many lovers of art from all parts of the country. Its gallery of pictures has been on exhibition during the on'ift^ "t'1 tbereba* >'en a course of lectures on art. The funds ot the society are rapidly hniMU,nJilng' lan'J to erect suitable buildings and establish a permanent gallery of nnd- ?tatua7 by American artists. | Which will increase by the annual contribu tions of our artists. It is hoped that the old hall of representatives will be converted into a gallery for the exhibition of works of art where they can remain exposed to public criti cism for a certain period. By opening and glaung the whole of the lantern in the dome, there would be abundance of light, and no room could be better adapted for the purpose The society desire to stimulate the ainUi? of artists by giving the best possible opportunity for merit to make iuelf known, ft wishes to I TV.? ob8tru?Uons on the road to fame. I V \v sa?e time il wou,d cultivate and elevate the national taste for art.

T B Thorpe furnishes the following reminiscence of the imperturbable Burr:'' " When in Louisville. Kentucky, some Tears since. I had the pleasure, a plea'sure wbich4 shall never forget, of meeting Judge Rowan one of the most remarkable men of his day.

A pheus 6^ Nickerson, a recent graduate at Andorer Theological Seminary, made applica tion to be admitted as an Evangelist, iu con nection with the Congregational Church and Society of that village. The examination of the candidate was generally satisfactory to the council, except upon a single subject. Beine questioned as to the salvation of infants, he expressed his unqualified belief in the old doc trine ol preordination, predestination, elec tion, ?nd infant damnation."' Jle did not know precisely how the thing could be accom plithed consistently with other parts of his creed^ and with Divine justice and g<x>dness, but yet his confidence in Divine justice and goodness satisfied him that it was possible that those innocents, who have no agency in their creation, and who had committed no sin. could be eternally damned, her Messrs. Cady, of West Cambridge; Marvin, of Medford; Seward, of Burlington, and Emerson objected to this general!y 'obsolete'' doctrine, as a heresy not to be tolerated, and refused to proceed to the ordination of the candidate. The council dis cussed the matter warmly until 7 o'elock in the evening, and then adjourned for eight weeks to reflect upon it. the audience havftg waited in the church from 10 o'clock, in expectation of the services.

A boat five years ago. 1 obtained from Mr. Tobias in W'aslungtou, a pair of Glasses for tne spectac<ei wfeiafc 1 used, and found them of great assistance U my deeav ing vision : and my opiuion of him is, that he is skillful in the preparation of Glasses for eye* not too for gone to be benefitted by such aid." J. F. MAY. LTNCHBuae, November 7,ISM. From an examination of Mr. Tobias' Glasses, anc from his observations and remarks, am oonvinoe<j that he is a skillful optioian. J. J. BLACKFORD. M. D. Lynchburg, Novembor 10. 1354. Mr. John Tobias, having furnished ine with Glas ses, by which I have been greatly Hided, (my vision having suffered greatly from reading at night in my earlier life,) it affords me the highest p ensure tt say that I consider him a skillful practical optician, and well prepared to aid those who mar need hit professional services. WM. B. ROl'ZIE, Elder ol the Methodist Conference. Wilmington. N. C., June Tt, 1634. .M R. J.Tobias?U'.ut Sit : I am hnppy to say th1:' the Spectacles which I obtained troin you iast week are entirely satisfactory. From an inequality in Uie viaunl rangeof iny eyes, I have heretofore found ereaf difficulty in getting glasses of the proper focal dis tances. It allords ine pleasure to state, that by the aid of your optometer this difficulty has l>eer: happily obviated, so that the Glasses you furnished me are decidedly the best adapted to my eyeaof any 1 have ever yet used. Very respeotftilly yours, R. B. DRANE. Rector of St. James' Parish. Having been induced bv a friend to visit the estat> liahiiient of Mr. Tobias for the purpose of tryins bi< glasses I was furnished with a pair slightly colored blue, wluoe haveatforded me more relief and gratifi cation than any I have ever tried. My sisht, origin ally very good, was injured by writing aiul reading at nutit, frequently to a very late hour: but with the aid of these glasses I can study almost as late at ever, and thai too without the pain I have previous ly sudered. JOHN WILSON, Late Commissioneer Gen'l Land OlLce. Dec. 11.1855. 1 have used Mr. Tol-ia^'a Spectaoiea for three oi four months,and take great pleasure in saying that I am much p>ea*ed with them. I have been muoii benefited by them. GEO. P. SGARBL'KGH. May 5th, 1856. 1 was recommended to Mr. John Tobias as a sbilfni optician; aiidas I have e*es of remarkable peculiari ty, I was gratified to fititf that Mr. Tobias ssemed to comprehend thein by inspection and some alight measurement, anil he has insde me a pair of Specta oiis that suits me admirably. A. P. itL'TLER. Jaly 11, 1856. Washing ton, Aug. 8,1855. Having been for years under the necessity of hav two sets of classes?one for use in daylight, and one for lamp liglit?I procured one set from Mr. Tobias which answered both purposes. 1 have uaed iua foi several months, and hud them excellent. EDWAKD8TUBBS, Of Department of Sfate. Mr. J. Tobias. Sir: The pair of Speotncies you laruished m? yesterday are particularly satisfactory to me. They are very decidedly the beat I possess, aiul I am the owner of eight or nine pairs, carefully selected in different places and from opticians rec ommended to me on acoouut of they professional standing in Franoe, England, and theTJntted States. I have been also pleased with your remarks and di rection on the treatment of tLe eyes, for the pur ?oae of preaemng and improving the sight Reapootfully yours, CHS. CALDWELL, Profeasor of M. C.. Louisville, Kf. Bbooklyn Obthopabdic Institution, April, 1854. , After moat careful examination of Mr. J. Tobias's Glasses, 1 am enabled t9 testify that their hardness, olearness, polishing, and exaot obtical shape reuder them particularly reoommendable to those whose merely optioal impairment of the ayes are in arant of suok auxiliaries. I oonaider. moreover, Mr. Tobiaa fully qualified to determine the foona of the eye.both hj nia optical knowledge and ezpenaooe, and by means of hia optometer. In addition, I enn furthet state tfeat Mr. Tobiaa has aspplied some of my pa 10 tt'Vis MiTWp.. Phyaioiac and Surgeon, Berlin; Member of the Rojal College orSurgeoiis, England; Member of the Mediae!

Va., July 27,1854. In the experience of even two years, I have found great difficulty in obtaining Spectacles that were ex actly adapted u> the weakness of my sight. Tins in oonvenieiioe Mr. Tobias seems to have removed for the present by the substitution for me of better and more suitable Glasses. They are clear, chryatal-lika and eomfortahle to my eyes. 1 would oommend him to tboae who from age or other infirmity require ar uficial aid ia Una way. J.J. BIMKIN8, M. D. WiLMiNeTON, N. Cn J une 16, 1854. To persona who have had the sight ofthetr ayes so impaired aa to require the use of Glasses, I would re oommend Mr. John Toluas as a suitable person from whom to obtain sueh Glasses aa tfeey may re ?|Uire, as he has suited me with a pair of Spectaoies or a far and near sight. My sight baa been impaired very much by a service of years In the Post Offioe Department, which berth required me to be on dut* from 11 o'oloek at night till after day, daring which timo I used bat one light. W. A. WALKER. DBrABTHBNT of Intbbiob, May t, 18M. From natural defeots and the unequal ranre of my eyes, I have been oompalled to use glasses for seve ral yeara. I have triad different opticians without obtaining gla*?es perfectly fitted to my syee. roar months siunp Mr. Tobias made two pairs especially for me, wBToh I have found to serve me aerfecUy.
