The Mormons, it is said, will not fight bat Tan; mt present, they are temporising and managing at such a rate that it is difficult to saj what they will do. Of course, however, when there is a question of war in the land, there will be plenty ot firey heads ready to ??ry, up the banners to the outward walls and die in the last ditch. A small indication, how ever, that there are certain among the saints who believe that most of the fighting will be done directly by the Lord, ia given in the num ber of the Deseret News, of Nov. 11th, in whieh we And a carious sort of war song hvmn. entitled 14 The Rocky Mountains," by W. W. Phelps, which goes to the very lively air of '? Hey the bonnie breast knots1'?a most extra ordinary tune for the subject. The fi rst verse is as follows: ?' The glory 'hat to Abrn'm shined, Before he Christian wond refined The ancient gospel for mankind. Shine* through the Roclty Mountains. Chobcs?Hey the Rocky, ho the Ro*-ky, Hey the Rocky Mountains ! The **cred chambers of the Lord, Th > bulwa k* of Jehovah !" The concluding verges of this precious lyric are characteristic of Mormon literature, as well as inspiration: " Away! there shines the Mormon lamp, W here many watch their country's camp, And may be now and then a scamp That's herded at their pleasure. Chorc*?Hey the Rocky, ho the Rocky, Ac. ?? When Japeth's hired servants come, A thousand mile* or more from home. Their 'West Point science' seeineth dumb, Where lire and straw tran*lateth. Cnonrs?Hey the Rocky, ho the Rocky, Ac. " The Oentile warpth with his hand*? The Mormon with hia heart, and standi, If pure, like^old, for Ood'* command*; And God doth fl^ht hi* battle CHoars?Hey the Rock v. ho the Rocky, Ac. This poem appears at the head of the famed Deseret News, and may be regarded as official. The reader will agree with us that if the Mor mons cannot fight better than they sing, the United States troop* will have but little to dread for the present?Philadelphia Bulletin. Startlixo Discloscbbs?The Cleveland Herald of the 24th. has the following : For two years past, an honest Dutchman ha? suspected his employer, Mr. Nu'son Hinkston of a design to fire bis buildings. Mr. Hink ston has heretofore borne an irreproachable character, was a citizen in good standing, and carried on an extensive shoe business, was affluent in circumstances, respected by bis fel low townsmen, and happy in his domestic rela tions. The Dutchman?we are sorry not to know his name?has been keeping watch of Mr Hinckston's movements, and thinking from certain circumstances that the torch was about to be applied to the block, communicated his knowledge to the others, and the Prosecutor of hummit county. Mr. McKinney took the mat ter in hand. The buildings owned by Mr. II. are in the centre of a large block of wooden structures, and had he carried out his design, the confla gration would have laid an important part of the village in ashes. On an examination of the premises, under the direction of the info mer, it was found that Mr. U. had made his build ing into a net-work of combustible material, from cellar to garret. He bad bored holes in the walls inserting small balls of waxed ends, enveloped in tiasue paper, and he had connected these from story to story, so aa to thoroughly Lre the joists in the partitions and introduce the flames under the plastering, and by all imaginable contrivances, had he laid his dia bolical plada, ?o a.* to flash his whole building, into an instant blase. Near this building, too, was his own family and that of a brother, and many others. "W hen the plot was discovered, and the Dutch man told Mr. II how long and how faithfully he had watched Jiim. Mr. Hinkston made a clean breast of the matter, and confessed that it was his design to fire his building, aud thus secure the insurance money. He said that two or three times he had been upon the point of touching off the train, but hia heart failed him. What instigated him to the act he does not know, as his circumstance* are easy, he bciDg worth $15,000 over and above his debts, and doing a good business. His property has been aligned f r the benefit of his creditor*, as Mr. 11 waa arrested and held to bail. As there is no offence by Ohio statute in setting fire to one'a own property, of course Mr. I!, could not be held, and yesterday he was discharged by the Probate Judge of Summit county. Cosckrmso Kissks.?"The kiss," says an ancient woman hater,'? the aurora of love, but the sunset of chastity." After the first kiss there follows a second, then a third, and so upward on the many rugged ladder of love to the ultima thulc. One kiss is very little and yet very much. It is the worldless interpreter of two hearts, which by this one breath tell each other more than by myriads of words. The kiss ia the high priest who initiates the heart in the Elusinian Jiyste ne* of love. The ancients counted three kinds of kisses : But in, that between friends and relatives. (taenia, the kiss of veneration. ?Sauarta, the kissproper?that between lovers. The monka of the middle ages?great theor ists?divided the kiss into fifteen distinct and separate orders: I 1. The decoroua or modest kiss. 2. The diplomatic, or kiss of policy. 3. The spying kiss, to ascertain if a woman had drunken wine. 4. The slave kiss. 5. The kiss infamous?a Church penance. 6 The slipper kiss, practiced toward tyrants. 7. The judicial kias. 8. The feudal kiss V. The religious kiss (kissing the cross.) 10. The academical kiss (on joining a solemn brotherhood.) 11. The hand kiss. 12. The Judaa kias. 13. The medical kis*?for the purpose of healing some sickness. 14- The kisa of etiquette 15. The kisa of love?the only real kisa. But this waa also to be variously considered, vis : given by ardent enthusiadin. as by lovers ; by matrimoniad affection; or, lastly, between two men?an awful kiss, fasting like sandwiches without butter or meat. A Chiap Ira Hoi'sb.?It has been a preva ent notion that ice houses must be made in the earth?but a wiser generation has discovered that the heat of the earth will consume ice more rapidly than the air. A writer in the Agriculturist, gives the following description of one on bis premises: " I partitioned off the northeast corner of my woodbouse which opens to the west, and is &> feet wide The ice room ia about 9 feet square; ia clapboarded on the atuds on the north and east, and lined on the inside, leaving the 4 inch apace between empty. On the aouth ia an inch board partition, juat tight euough to hold saw dust. On the west I slip in boards, like bars, to any height I wish U> pile my ice, and leave the apper part open, just aa ia convenient. This ia tny house " Into it. on the ground, I put from fi to 10 itches >4 sawdust, then put in my ice, one foot from the partition on every side, packing it as closely as I can, and in as large blocks aa I can conveniently handle. I then fill the spaces next the partitions with sawdust, and a good depth, (say one foot.) over the top, and it ia 4one for the year. . '? I have practised in this way'for two years pest, and had all I wanted, for dairy and other uses, and to give to my neighbors, and I had plenty of good ice left laat week." |^7" Owiov to a strike la the oMr* of the Bos ton Courier Monday's Issue of that paper waa act ta type by the editors and reporters. The occa sion of the atrlke waa a chaage of foreman by the proprietors, the removed foreman aad the eom tmi tore being Members ef the Priater'a Union i that elty. A Mibibteb asd bis Wife Arbbbtbd for IIigbwav Uubbbry.?The Rev. Samuel Smith, miuier of the Collegiato School at Clifton, and formerl j second muter of Bishop8'.?ollege, Eng land, and hia wife, hare been arrerted for high way robbery and attempted murder, the wife of Mr. Smith was a Miss Mills, and about nine years ago, before her marriage, numbered among her suitors a Mr. Leach, contraotor. The match wad broken off and Mr. Leach mar* ried another ladj, who died some time since. Mrs. Smith, having ascertained that Mr. Leach had beoome a widower, addressed a letter to him in which she stated that her huaband had recently died, and inrited him to renew the intimacy which formerly existed betwean them. After several letters had passed Mr. Leach agreed to meet the lady at Bristol on Sunday, 31st of January. They poet at the Bristol sta tion and took tickets for Yate, where they alighted, and Mrs. Smith proposed to cross the common to her residence, instead of taking the high road. The station-master advised ag linst this, on account of the darkness of the night; but finding her strenuous, took a lantern and accompanied them to the point from which they would have to cross the common. In a short time, the lady professed to have lost the way, and in a fow minutes after Mr. Leach was as saulted by a man. Being a strong man, h?> however, got the better of his assailant, and his cries for aid were heard by two of the railroad men. who ca-? eup. Tbe assailant was found to be the Rev. Mr. Smith, the husband of the lady ; but he man aged to make his csape. The detective foroe proceeded to the house of Mr. Smith, and ar rested the parties. On their track were found a widow's cap and a six barrel revolver pistol, loaded and capped, near the spot where the struggle took place. In searching tbe bouse, a parcel containing a shirt,collar, satin scarf and pocket hankerchief, all marked with Mr.Leach's name were found.?Boston Trarefltr. Gvmxastics ix Swedish Schools.?Special pains are taken in tbe public schools of Sweden to developo the physical as well as the intellec tual powers of the pupils. Tbe following ac count is given of the system which the Swedes pursue: " Every school building has its large high room, with earthen or matted fl 'or, and all sorts of implements for developing the musclee? ladders, poles, wooden horsos, cross-bars up to the roof, jumping places, ropes for swinging, knotted ropes for climbing, <fcc. The seholars are not allowed to exercise on what they wish, but there is a regular, scientifically arranged system. They are trained in squads, and move and march, soinet mes to music, at the word of command At a large public school in Stockholm, I saw the lads in their noon lessons of gymnastics. The teacher gave tbe word, and a dozen sprang out toward a tall pole with cross bars, and, clambering up it, each hung with his legs; then, at the word, all together dropped their heads backward, and hung by the feet and ankles, then again recovered themselves, and let themselves down. Another party, one after the other, squirmed up a naked mast; another pulled themselves up hand over hand on a knotted rope; others, in succession, played leap-frog over a wooden horse; then they marched to the beat of tbe drum. The smaller or weaker boys begin with the lowest grade of exercise, and follow up, according to a scientific system, arranged for health. They all seemed to go into it with the greatest relish, and ?howed well trained muscular power. I could not but conclude that the superior physique of the Swedish men is not entirely due to climate. When will America learn ti,at health and strength have their unescapable laws ?" 051 OF THK UC8T PKCFLIAR MSCBA.HI cal Dkticbb is the floating brick, an ancient invention; they are so light as to swim in water, and were formerly made at Marseilles, at Co lento in Spain, and at Pittane in Asia. This invention, however, was oompletely lost, until M. Fabbroni published a discovery of a method to imitate tbe float ng bricks of the ancients. Tbe material of which they are capable of being made is what is known as fossil meal, a kind of earth found in abundance in Tuscany, and consisting, according to analysis, of fifty-five parts of silioious earth, fifteen of magnesia, fourteen of water, twelve of alumina, tnreeof lime, and one of iron. Bricks composed of this substance, either baked or unbaked, float in water; and atwvntieth part of clay may be added to their composition without taking away their property of swimming. These bricks resist water, unite perfectly with lime, are subject to no alteration from heat or cold, and the baked differ from the unbaked only in the sonorous quality which they have acquired from the fire, their strength is but little inferior to that of common bricks, but much greater in propor tion to their weight; thus, a floating brick, measuring seven inches in length, four and a half in breadth, and one inch eight lines in thickness, weighs only fourteen and one-fourth ounccs, whereas a common brick weighs about fivo pounds and one-half. [ Swedenborgianism is said to be making rapid advances, both in tbe number of its pro fessed disciples, and in the accession of clergy men of influence in other denominations, wno, embracing "New Church" views and interpre tations. dispense them to their flocks. There are now two "New Church" societies in this city, two in Brooklyn, one in Williamsburgh, and one in Hoboken; and the agent of the New Church Book Concern states that tbe largest buyers are among the most popular clergymen, but that packages of books and tracts are now sent for from Mexico, Chili, Buenos Ayres, Brazil, Oregon, and all other parts of tbe nuw world, as well as from most European States. Societies, and numerous believers in now Church doctrines are found in England, Franee, Prussia, the German States, and even in Borne and Florence.?N. Y. Sun. Joyhhilb Inqsxcitt.?A farmer in Vir ginia, who had been digging a well, was called away from home, leaving none but two small sons on the premises. During his absence, a favorite horse by accident got into the well, which was about twelve feet deep, and of suffi cient diameter to allow the horse standing room. The boys on discovering the unfortu nate animal, set their young brains to work to get him out. Their bill of" waya and means" was almost exhausted when the youngest one, only nine years old, suggested an amendment, which was immediately adopted. They had been threshing, and large quantities of straw was coavenient. The boys with a confident glee pitched into the straw, and " toted' by armsCul sufficient to fill the well, the noble pri soner tramping it down until be oould walk right out upon straw bait, fully appreciating the kindness of his youthful liberators, and no doubt thinking "all's well that ends well."

WISE. PxtrRsbitr?, October *1,15i4. About five years ago, I obtained from Mr. Tobiaa. in \\ ashington, a pair of Glasses for tbe spectacle* which I used, and found them of great assistance to my decaying vision ; and ray opinion of him is, that he is skillful in the preparation of G!ass?s for eye? not too far gone to be benefitted by such aid. J. F. MAY. Ltnchburs, November 7,1854. From an examination of Mr. Tobias' Glasses, anC from his observations and remarks, am oonvinoed that he ia a skillful optician. J. J. BLACKFORD. M. D. Lynchburg, November 10. 1854. Mr. John Tobias, having furnished me with Glaa aea, by which 1 have been greatly aided,(my visiob liavine suffered greatly from reading at nigh* in my earner life,> it affords me the highest pleasure to say that 1 consider him a skillful pr?otioal optician, and well prepared to aid those who ma? ne^d his professional servioes. WM. B. ROI'ZIE, Elder ol the Methodist Conference. Wilmington, N. C., June 27. IRM. Mr. J.Tobias?bear Sir : 1 am happy to say thai the Spectacles which I obtained from you laat week are entirely satisfactory. From an inequality in the visual rangeofiny eyes, I have heretofore found great difficulty in setting glasses of the proper foca! dis tances. It affords me pleasure to state, that by the aid of your optometer this 'lifficulty h;*s been happily obviated, so that the Glasses you furnished me ure decidedly the l>eat adapted to my eyeaof any I have evaryet used. Very respectfully vours, R. B. DRANE. Reotorof St. James' Pariah. Having been induoed b? a friend to visit the estab lishment of Mr. Tobias for the purpooe of try ine his Classes I was furnished with a pair slightly colored lue,.whice have afforded me morn relief and gratJi cation than any I have ever tried. My sight, origin ally very good, was injured by writing and reading a! nizht, frequently to a very late hour: but with the aid of these glasses I oan study almost as late as aver, and that too without the pain I have previous ly suffered. JOHN WILSON, I.ate Commisaioneer Gen'l Land Office. Dee. 11.1855. I have used Mr. Tobias's Spectacles for three oi four months, and take great p'eas'ure in sajing that I am much pleased with them. I have been much benefited by them. GEO. P. SCARBURGH. May 5th, 1856. 1 was recommended to Mr. John Tobiaa aa a skilful optician; and as I have eves of remarkable peculiari ty, I was gratified to find that Mr. Tobiaa seemed to oomprehend them by inspection and some slight measurement, and he has made me a pair of Specta oles that suits me admirably. A. P. BL'TLER. July 11, 1856. . Washington, Aug. 8, 1855. Having been for years under the necessity of hav two sets of glasses?one for use in daylight, and one for lamp-light?I procured one set from Mr. Tobias whioh answered l>oth purposes. I have used his fot several months, and hod them excellent. EDNVAKD STUBBS. Of Department of State. Mr. J. Tobias. Sir; The pair of Spectaolea you furnished me yesterday are particularly satisfactory to me. They are verv deoidedly the best I possess, and lam the owner of eight or nine pairs, carefully aeleoted in different plaoea and from opticians rec ommended to me on acoount of their professional standing in Franoe, England, and the United States, I have been also pleased with your remarks and di rections on the treatment of the eyes, ft* the pur pose of preaerving and improving the eight Reapeotfully yours, CHS. CALDWELL. Professor of M. C.. Louiaville, Ky. Brooklyn Orthofardic Institution, . _ - . April, 1864. After most oarefal examination or Mr. J. Tobias's Glasses, I am enabled to testify that their hardnesa, clearness, polishing, and exaot optical shape render them particularly reoommendable to those whose merely optioal impairment of the eyes are in want of such auxiliaries. 1 oonsider. moreover, Mr. Tobise folly qualified to determine the fooua of the eye.boti by ma optioal knowledge and experienoe, and by meana or hia optometer. In addition, I can farther state that Mr. Tobiae haa aupplted aome of my pa tient* with Glasses, to their and my satisfaction LEWIS BAUER, M. p.. Physician and Sureeon, Berlin: Member of the Royal College or Surgeons. England; Member of the Medioal Society of London, and of the Pathological Society of New York; lato Sur geon of the Royal Orthopaedio Institution of Manohestcr, England, and Surgeon of tbe B. O. Institution. Norfolk, Va., July rr, 1854. In the experienoe of even two years. 1 have fouud great diffioulty in obtaining Spectacles that were ex actly adapted to the weakness of my sight. This in oonvemence Mr. Tobias seems to have removed for the present by the substitution for me of better and more suitable Glasses. They are olear, chry stal-like and oomfortable to my eyes. 1 would oommend him to thoae who from age or other infirmity require ar tifioial aid in thia way. J. J. SlMKlNB, M. D. _ Wilmington, N. C., June 16, 1854. To persons who have had the sight of their eyes aa impaired as to require the use or Glasses, 1 would reoommend Mr. John Tobiaa aa a suitable person from whom to obtain auoh Glaeaea as they may re ?|Uire, aa he haa auited me wi^h a pair of Speotaolea or a far and near aight. My sight has been impaired Eraueh by ? service of years in the Poet Olfioe urtment, whioh berth required me to be on duty i II o'oloek at night till after day, during whioti time 1 used but one light. W.A.WALKER. _ Drpartmrnt or Intrrior, May 8, 1865. From natural defects and the unequal range of my eyes, 1 have been compelled to use glasses for seve ral years. I have tried different opticians without oMainiac glasses perfectly fitted to my eyes. Four Enths sums Mr. Tobiaa made two pairs especially me, whioh I have found to serve me perfectly, tea use of his optometer he is enabled *e adapt classes most minutely to the eye. 1 moat oheerful ly reoommend Mr Tobiaa to all having oceasma to se 36 Ass't See'y to sign Land Warrants. j?TE AND BA*LBY ^ CTTY MALT HOUSE, eonier ofWeirtF . all. m Mi. mwt-ij Tr*Ttltn' Dtriftsry. yyASHlNGTON BRANCH RAILROAD.
