COLLINS k CO., M South tt Dr. Gardner's Lecture Lut Evening. rV Oue of the most interesting lectures of the season was that delivered last evening by the above eminent profes:-or, in the Chemical Lecture Room of the University. A vetv crowded class? embracing pupils of different ages, varying from blooming nineteen, through the "dear and yellow leaf," down to the "slippered pantaloon" were in attendance, and seemed quite fascinated with the opening address of Dr. Gardnkr. He commenced on the subject of Plants. So fertile in novelties is a plant, tlint every branch of inductive science is interested in in vestigating its symmetry, its functions, and its forceB. The Botanist limits the ran^e of his ob nervation to the figure of parti, to the alliances in struc turn and similarity of habiti: Taking a model from the highest organizations or the simplest forms, he indus triouily compares the divelopement or reduction of or gans, one with another. He traces a simple cell of membrane, expaiding in complexity from point to point, through SO,000 grada*ions, until it rcachjthe symmetrical beauty of the rose. In the interior he discerns new tubes and organs, with the complexity of external form; and aisociates elevated and elaborate results with in created developement. Scorning the one called green mildew, that gives an air of antiquity to the wall, his im agination is excited and his energy exerted in unravel ling the inextnble delicacies of the leaflets cl" a flower.? His employment is gratifying and intellectual?it has done good, but this is not the way in which the agricultuiist should consider plants.? The chemist brings the new sense of analysis to inves ligatethe difference between the rscending sap and the gummy fluid which descends the stem He discriminates between the coloring matters, the oils, the starch and fibrine. He submits to critical research the gases of the interior, the contents of cellules and the pertume ot flow ers. The mineral constituents and the food ot plants are interesting topics of inquiry. Whether the air feeds them or the soil? And after they have passed through their existence, what changes fill upon their remains To him, the green moss is as noble as the oak?nay, nobler, for he dtscoveu that a simple tissue is endowed with functions as important, properties as recondite as the most i aspiring forest tree, or the brightest gem of Flora. The farmer must confine his studies to this department. The natural philosopher examines the force with which sap ascends to the summit of the tallest pines. He measures its intensity and studies the causes which produce it, as sociates capillary force and electrical affinity with vege tation Investigates the percolation ol fluids into cellules, and the origin of movements in the latex. The sunbeam ii to him a magazine el power; he discriminates with nicety between tne ray which produces the given color, wbich purples the autumnal fruit, or touches with a slight blush the tarly peach?and that which, exeiilng an amorous solic tntiou, bends the young flower stem to its embrace. To him, vegetation is the resultant of cthc rial forces, the impediment of imponderable actions. The ceaseless wavelets of the sunbeam, unseen, unfelt by our gross senses bring out hy their ripples in the air, a living plant,symmetrical in figure,fragrant,and exquisite in color. You will admire such studies?they present truths immutable and fixed, which take the imagination by storm and put to flight all its conceptions. The bright est creations of fancy pale away before the light of truths such as these. Thu calm air, awakening sublime emo tion* from its limitless extent, is bursting with life. The eternal pulsations of light end heat disturb each atom of its structure, and strike with organizing force upon its gases. There too the disembodied forms of pas: exist ences gather to take on new shapes beneath the moulding power of the sun's ravs. To the farmer this stu dy should be the recreation of his winter's even ing, but not the euq liry of his occupation ? From all these sources he gathers truths; to all these laborers in science he is a debtor; but for his art, for bis peculiar department of knowledge they are not enough, they are not all He must consider not only a plant, but the soil agriculturally. He must cherish a sew science, instead of merely gathering hims for other de partments; the science of agriculture, which in extent is superior to most others in utility to all. It will avail bim little to know that all plants produce seeds with one lobe, with two lobes, or with none at all. That the blue ray bends the steer?the yellow greens the leal?the red pro duoes aumeral tints. That sap rises with a force equiva lent to a pressure of 46 inches of the barometer ; that grape sugar differs from starch by two atoms of water?if ne confine* his knowledge here. Our enquiries are often re moved from those ot the sister sciences. We would kt-ow how to develope and excite to increased luxuriance the useful vegetables : which drawing food from the soil ex haust its fertility the most, which the least. By what means the nutritious principles are developed, and how plants, compare with each other as sustenance lor man and ani mals In what way we may increase the quantity of matter in the soil serving plants as food. On these subjects other sciences are silent, and it remains for ourselves to search and discover the solutions I shall, therefore, present you with the agricultural divi sion of the vegetable kingdom. Thcro are /our great classes. 1st. Natural plants raised on the farm. 3d. Plants which have been changed by cultivation?Cerelia. 31. Weeds. 4th. Parasitic vegetables?Smut, ruit. You saay consider this an arbitrary division, but it is the re sult of much study, and ramifies in ill contcquences through every operation of the farm. The learned Professor alter dilating at length en the va rious " families" of weeds, plants, and vegetables in the "vegetable kingdom," concluded a most interesting lec ture, which gave much satisfaction. The lectures will be repeated twice a week. Washington. [Correspondence ol the Herald. J Washington, D. C.,l)ec. 2, 1814. ?Apology for Captain Newt on?Mighty Difference between Negligence and Neglect of Duty. I take the liberty to address you for the purpose aad with the hope of correcting an erroneous im pression which a remark made by your corres pondent of Nov. 29:h in calculated to produce. In a letter ol that date he says, with reference to the the case of Captain Newton, " It is perhaps not known to these writers that the Court Murtial found him guilty ol all the charges alleged against him, and still the sentence was suspension but for two yearB only;" and he further goe< on to suy that there " wan sad neglect of duty made fully evident in this investigation." Now, sir, whatever may have been the object of the writer, the effect of his letter is really injurious, and to one whose conduct on the occasion alluded to, so far as the world have judged, was and is without reproach. Capt. Newton had but one charge preferred against him, and that charge was negligence. A term as com prehensive as the element upon which his vessel floated. It might mean any thing, every thing, or nothing. On this chatge he wns found guilty, and that the charge of itself was of a light and trifling charac ter is apparent from its very wording. Had it been a charge, lor " neglect of duty," the case would at once have been so serious us to lead the public to the conclusion that he had greatly trred. But as no such charge, nor one ol a stiictly military character was preferred at all, 1 beg leave to ask you, in common justice, to give this statement an insertion, that the wrong already inflicted may be4 as partial as possible in its efleets. Cincinnati's Ntatcn Island. (Correspondence of the Herald ) Richmond, Wednesday, Dec. 4, 1844. The Court ol Oyer and Terminer now sitting here, is still struggling away at the labor of getting a jury. It has been a long and irksome underta king;and so slowly diu it proceed at the commence ment, that a large number, well informed on the matter, concluded that no jury could be procured. However probable this conjecture Beemed, it is since yesterday morning untenable; for at that date no less than eleven out of twelve jurors were enipannelled. To add the twelfth to the number new levies have been summoned at no slight per sonal trouble to the officers engaged in that ser vice, for there is a strong aversion prevailing all over the Island against being one of the jury,and every ingenious method is taken to keep out of the war Indeed,this is not to be wondered at,for from every appearance, the proceedings on the trial will continue a couple of weeks?a formidable period, to be subjected to th? discipline and restraints put upon the twelve. Yesterday and to-day have been spent in getting the last juror; but from all the ob stacles and delays which present themselves, one is inclined to disbelieve the proverb?"that the first step is the greatest difficulty"?so, judging from present proceedings, it is not too much to say, in regard to the pending case here, that the last step is the most difficult. The Court is now in recess, awaiting the arrival of the jurors summoned, and will si: at 3 o'clock to day. There remain but three out of the prison er's twenty peremptory challenges,so that by obtain ing four "good men and true," the jury is procured, the Sheriff saved a whole mountain of trouble,ana opposing counsel charged with eloquence for the opening addren and reply. Should the trial com mence this evening, there will be an accurate re port forwarded by the first conveyance, but if it does not, there will be nothing wonhy of cemmu nicating for another day.
