The oil was introduced into a test tube, the tube partly immersed in water and heat was applied. The water was raised to the boiling point, and the heat was continued until the tomperaturc of the oil in the tube was 207 deg. Fahrenheit. Flaiue was ap plied to the mouth ot the tube, but there was not sufficient evolution of vapor to take fire. From the test 1 should regard the oil in question as perfectly safe for household use, when employed with onlinnrv care. Signed, H. T. CUMMINGS, umrTd&wlm Aseayer.

A Difference in Opinion. The Argils, alter copying the extracts which we recently made from Jefferson’s Inaugural, adds-: When it is considered that Congress hasjust suspended the writ of habeas corpus in ten States when there is no invasion, no rebellion, and the public safety does not require it, it will be seen how little regard the radical leaders have for “freedom of person under the protec tion” of that writ, as well as for the constitu tion ot the country which authorises its sus pension only in the contingencies above nam ed. Congress too has placed the military above the civil authority in those States and has de nied them representation in Congress in plain violation of express provisions of the constitu tion. The statement in the above in relation to the action of Congress on the writ of habeas corpus is entirely gratuitous and uncalled for. The Constitution of the United States pro vides that “the privilege of the writ of habeas corpus shall not be suspended unless, when in cases of rebellion or invasion, the public safety may require it.” in ioor, wnen reoel armies were marching to the field to maintain an adverse government within the limits of the United States territo ry, and nearly a dozen States had formally declared their separation from, independence of, and opposition to the Union as it was, and when the Legislature of Maryland had met for the avowed purpose of taking that State out of the Union, the President as sumed the responsibility of suspending the writ of habeas corpus in the insurrectionary states and districts, to prevent rebel-sympa thizing judges from setting at liberty men ar rested for treason and for other high crimes against the government. How did the Dem ocrats regard this act of President Lincoln? How did the Ary us regard it? Did the pub lic salety at that time, in its estimation, justi fy the act? Invasion and rebellion were rife, the national life was threatened, the national capital was beleagured, and yet, if we recol lect aright, our contemporary and the party with which he then trained and now trains, pronounced the act of President Lincoln one of high-handed usurpation and outrage, in flagrant violation of the Constitution, with out authority and without justification. If we are not right in this, the Argus, by refer ence to its files, will be able to place us right. The ground then taken was that the Presi dent in no case had the right to suspend the writ in question; that this was in the power of Congress alone, and although Congress was not in session, and only a portion of its members had been elected, and an extra ses sion could not be convened under sixty days or thereabouts, our patriotic Demoeraric friends insisted upon giving armed rebellion all the advantage of these facts, and denying to the government the right and the power to do an act unmistakably essential to the public salety aud to the protection of its own life1 -^r rT(<; perfect right of the President to suspend the writ under the circumstances, yet, when Con gress came together in extra session, in order that all cavil might be silenced, it threw the sanction of its authority over the act and con tinued it in force. So much for the facts of past history. The recent suspension of the writ of habeas corpus, in certain cases and under certain and specific conditions—to which the Argus re fers—was by act of Congress alone. No questiou can be raised as to the authority of the act itself; the only question is whether the exigencies contemplated in the Constitu tion had arisen or existed. The Argus as sumes that they did not exist,—says “there is no invasion, no rebellion, and the public sale ty does not require it.” This is simply assum ing the very thing that should be proved. The act of Congress was b ised on the assumed fact that rebellion did exist and that the pub lic safety required the suspension of the writ of habeas corpus. And will the Argus in form us who is to be the judge in this matter ? If Congress alone is competent to suspend the writ under given conditions, who but Congress shall say when these conditions exist ? What are the tacts? At the time the writ was suspended ten of the States were virtu ally under military government. Military authority was everywhere in the ascendant.— The highest military commander—below the President—and all his subordinate commau ders, had, over and over again, reported or given the opinion that it was unsafe to with draw the military protection from the loyal people of those States and leave the sole con trol of matters in the hands of President Johnson's provisional authorities. The laws of Congress were trampled upon by those au thontie, the property and lives of Union men were unsafe, self-constituted bodies of men styling themselves “Kegidators” were in augurating a reign of terror throughout many sections of the South, and the so-called civil authorities took no steps to stop the evil; the murder of Union men was not punished, the Ireedmen were slaughtered with impunity, and Congress, after looking the matter all over, after the most careful investigation, de cided that those States were still in a state of quasi rebellion, and that the public safety re quired the suspension oi the writ of habeas ■ corpus, and being the body whose right to suspend cannot be called in question, and of course whose right to judge of the necessity tor such suspension is equally clear, we sut> mit whether the flippant declaration above quoted is no- particularly refreshing! “Congress, too,” says the same paper, “lias placed the military above the civil authority in those States.” A subsequent remark shows that this refers to the recent passage of the Keeonstructiou act. When we wrote our ar ticle the other day in relation to Jeifersou and Democracy, we expected our neighbor would walk into this trap, and we lelt per fectly willing to leave the door open for him to do so. The truth is, the recent action of Congress is the initiative designed to estab lish civil governments in the South, which have not been enjoyed there since the col lapse of the rebellion. As acini officer Presi dent Johnson had no more authority than a child to appoint Provisional Governors for the icbel States, or to set up the machinery of government under them. It was a mere mil itary act, done by virtue of his authority as Commander-io-Chief and not by any author ity as President of the United States, lie so regarded it himself at the time, and said the whole work was subject to the revision of Congress. Having no power as a civil officer to do what he did, the acts were simply mili tary acts, and all the outgrowth ot those acts, in the absence of Congressional sanction, would have but military authority, were mere military fungi on the body politic ot those States. The law of Congress, on the contrary. opens the way lor establishing civil governments in those States, lays down the conditions of their establisnment, and pro vides lor the initiatory steps towards a con summation so much to be desired. When the States shall—as they seem likely to do—ac cept the previsions of that law and act upon them, the civil authority will be fully restored, and all that Mr. Jefferson contemplated in a time ot peace will be fully realized. And it should be remarked tbat even in the prelimin ary steps to reconstrucation the military au tbority is to lie used only for protection—to secure the rights of loyal meu under the law; aud we say without fear ot successful contra diction that, under this law, the military pow er in the late rebel states will l>e no more op pressive, no more active, no more lelt—except by desperadoes and ruffians—than it h is been tor the last two years. One point more and we have done. The Argun says Congress “has denied them (the rebel States | repiesentation in Congress in plain violation of express provisions of the Constitution.” Will our neighbor tie so kind and condescending as to give the precise lan guage of the Constitution here referred to, which Congress has violated, as we leel ex ceedingly anxious to see it Its readers, too, may get some light by its compliance with this request. Come, neighbor, allow the light you possess on this point to bear upon the darkened understanding of our community. iflHiirra in New Verb. Cold, Coal, Oil, ami Peat—Fears of Cholera — Workiug Women's Home—“Fallen Wom en"—A Romance in Real Life and a For tune. New Tobk, April 2,1857. To the Editor qf the Press: it is comforting to realize that cold, bluster ing March has gone at last, and the much-talk - ed of and longed-for April sunshine, showers and zephyrs are near at hand. However, as a fortification to our shivering population, in case April should prove fickle, and as intoler. ably intractable as its predecessor, we have the good fortune to know that at the coal sale last Wednesday, 72,000 tons were sold at rates va rying from $4,05 to $5,25 per ton. An addi tional circumstance tending to allay all feats of suffering from cold is the great interest ap parenfin the enterprise of extracting from the earth that long-neglected article of fuel called peat. Many are the marshes and bogs, once considered worthless, that now teem with vast fortunes in the shape of peat. Oil was once the highway to fortune, but it has had its run—peat is coming forward to fire the specu lative heart. Thousands of peat-beds have re cently been brought up, and embryo peat com" panies are coming forward to electrify the money-getting world. It was only just now we got rid of oil—“peat on the brain” is its il lustrious successor. Immense aud intricate machines are being put in operation to meta morphose the black, greasy, rook snarled muck of the peat marsh into genteel billets of wood of ebony hue, which are to move the machin ery aud warm the aching-cold toes, of the world. But this is a piogressive age,and won ders never cease in mouey-getting as well as other things. We would like to be informed, however, before we invest, how much peat will pay with coal at $4,06 pet ton. l nere seems to be a general apprehension that cholera is to fix itself in this city the en suing summer. What this fear is grounded upon, I am unable to say. • The fact that it ex ist* in places having commercial connection with New York, and its introduction here has always been through vessels from other ports, may induce the opinion that its appearance i» arbitrary, and cannot be prevented. Ther® has been an increase of mortality in the month of March. In one week the deaths in New York were 433; in Brooklyn 124. Ur Harris, in his report to the Board of Health says 2f> per cent, were infants under one year) and that the low tempeiature and snow storms were important facts in the sauiiary condition'd' the week. The greatest mortali ty was in the 4th, 6th, 7th and 16th wards, the slums of New York. God only knows what devastation will be produced if the cholera gets into these localities during the approach ing warm season! In a city of so much oppression, immorality and vice as New York, it is pleasant to »i* ness efforts to ameliorate the condition of the unfortunate poor, to to leed the hungry, and relorrn the vicious and fallen, One of the best societies of this character is that now estawisnrag tne “’VVorKIng Women’s Home”, designed to aid the poor women of the city who work for small pay. A building capable of accommodating 560 persons is now in pro gress of completion, where a home of comlort and health will be provided, and where the hard-working seamstress will find friends to look after her pecuniary interests and see that she has good work and good pay. One half of the cost ol the building ,$125,000, is al ready provided. Another philanthropic effort Is being made by the St. Barnabas Society, connected with the ladies of the predominant Protestant sect in this city, to reform fallen woman. Many of this unfortunate class have been saved by the persevering efforts of these devoted ladies, who, despite the incredulousness of many good Christian people, have succeeded in es tablishing a home for the cast off unfortunate and leading many from vice to Virtue, restor ing them to family and triends those who had been given upas forever lost They have been gathered from the streets, and by a friendly hand taken to a home, when all other homes of kindred have been abandoned—pitied, and wept and prayed over—encou raged and aided to begin a new life—and finally saved from the avalanche of misery which at the end fails on the head of a woman lost to virtue. I have to relate a “romance in real file," partaking somewhat of the “supernatural” of which I have always been distrustful But the principal actors are living and the partic ulars are vouched for. In the city of Brook lyn lives a native of the Emerald Isle—mar ried—has three or four children. Supposing himself to be an orphan, he came to this country years ago, and is now the possessor of a handsome fortune. His mother died before he left Ireland—his father, having separated from her, had gone to parts unknown and was supposed to he dead. O'Neil, for that is what we call the orphan’s name, commenced life in America as a day laborer. He was industri ous and frugal, and soon got married to an Irish girl, a Protestant, who belonged to a church in Brooklyn. She was smart, sensible and intelligent, and made him a good wile.— O'Neil was getting along well in his adopted home; his wile's acquaintances and associa tions were the means of introducing him into good society and everything went on smooth ly. Suddenly, almost unconsciously to her self, she became what is called a “medium," or rather, at times she would la;>se into a condi tion of trance, when she appeared under the influence ol unseen agencies, and talked in comprehensibly to cither herself or husband. Being a well-beloved sister Id the church, and known lo be a Christian in her walk and de portment, the demerit sometimes attaching to such singular manifestations could not be im puted to her. In the peculiar condition of her trance stales, she seemed gifted with a fore knowledge of events, tad breathed her snouguw in language so pure and beautllid that even those lew friends who were cogniz ant of her peculiar condition could but ex press their surprise in wonderand admiration. A singular piece of infornmtion was imparted toiler by some unseen agency while in her peculiar condition, which was that the father of her hu»band, supposed dead years ago, was Uciny in France. She described the street and locality in the city of Paris wherp he liv ed. The husband disbelieved—thought his wife was crazy. She however persisted, and the information bore on her miud with such a weight that lie finally thought seriously of the matter. “Tour tatber is living—he is very old and infirm, and desires to see you before he dies,’’ was the substance of the incompre hensible message. O’Neil began to make in quiries of his countrymen here who were from his own native locality what was actually known of his father in his last days at home, and ascertained that the last known of him was that lie had gone to France, but that sub sequent news came that he was lost at sea.— The result was that O’Neil resolved to make a visit to his native land, ar.d he ielt New \ ork tor Havre, en route for Paris, resolved, before he trod the green hiii-sidcs of Erin, to demonstrate the truth or falsity of his wifes predictions. He followed her directions alter reaching Paris, and in the precise locality des cribed by his wife, ail the surroundings iteing exactly as she revealed them, he found hie fa ther, an aged and feeble man jnst tottering on the edge of the grave. The old man was un" believing; but the son related the particulars of his early life with such exactness, and ex hibited a particular mark upon his person which he here irom infancy, that the lather was convinced, and embraced him as Ids long lost sou—a son he was sure was living, whom he had longed in his night visions and in the weary days of helpless age to see lie ore he died. The elder O’Neil was the possessor of great wealth,and gave his son a title to all his property. The son returned to America, took his family and went back to Paris, where lie remained till his father died. He then sold all bis property in France—came back to his much-loved adopted home-invested a large portion of his property in real esUte-is now a wealthy citizen of Brooklyn, and with'his tarnily a regular attendant at Plymouth Chureh- _ Nassau. Origin of the lair Treaty. The recent treaty by which the whole of Rus sian America will pass under the coutrol of the United States—provided it shall be ratified by the Senate—seems to iiavc been suggested by a memorial of the Legislature ol' Washington Territory, of Jan. 18W>. That memorial, ad dressed to the President, asserts that abun dance of codfish. halibut, and salmon, of excel lent quality, have been fonnd along tho shores of “Russian America.” The memorialists re quest the President “to obtain sneh rights and “privileges ol the Government of Russia as “will enable our fishing vessels to viBit the ports and harbors of its possessions, to the end 1 that lresh water and provisimis may be easily “obtained; that our sick antPdisabled fisher “men may obtain sanitary assistance, together with the privilege of curing fish and repairing “vessels in need of repairs.” W e notice that some of our exchanges speak of this territory as though it were a mere ice berg, outside of all reasonable limits for hu man habitation or commercial importance.— Those who thus reason argue simply from the latitude in which it lies, forgetting that it is as warm on the western coast of America as it is in the corresponding latitude ou the coast of Europe. The With parallel of North latitude, which passes through the southern portion of Russian America, also passes very near to the capitals of Sweden and Russia—Stockholm and St. Petersburg. The fisheries of Russian America are said to be among the best in tho world, and the climate is not so forbidding but sheep of the finest quality are raised in great abundance. We have nothing to say specifically of the wisdom of paying a large price for this or any other territory, bnt we have no sympathy for that spirit which would ignore it on the ground that our country is large enough and will nev er need room lor greater expansion. There were those who entertained this narrow view more than seventy years ago, and when Jeffer son acquired Louisiana they saw in tho act tho entering wedge that was to rivo the nation in to a thousand splinters. We confess wo should feel no alarm if we knew that our uatioual bird was destined to hover overthe whole of North America, and withont concern can contem plate the event when Americans shad say: “No pent up Utica contracts our powers, 'i'lie whole boundless continent Is ours.” _;_% New l*ablicnti«u». The English or Shakespeare ; Illustrated iu a Philological Commentary uu his ‘ Julius Cjeaar." By George L. Craik, Professor of History and of English Literature in Queen's College, Belfast. Edited by W. J. Boltb, Master of the High School, Cambridge, Mass. Boston: Crosby & Ainsworth. This is the first appearance iu this country, of a work the merits and uses of which have been already well tested in the English schools. The editor having used Protessor Craik’a hook, to his great satisfaction in lira classes in Cam bridge, conceived the idea of preparing a re vised edition for tl^e benefit of other schools, and the result was the volume before us. Tho original notes have been very carefully revised, and some additions made to them and thp __ uiuia passages illustrating sliake tpesre’s Euglish have also been largely added to, but the body of the work remains unalterc d! Students of Shakespeare will fiud Professor Craik, a careful, acute, honest and painstaking vernal critic; hut beyond verbal criticism he does not attempt to go. His woik is philological purely, but in this field is as thorough and as nearly exhaustive as anything well could he. He commences by giving the version oP'Julius Caesar” which is believed to be the most au thentic attainable, and then follows the text with a commentary in which he explains at length the meaning of all obsolete words and doubtful passages, from the light which had beeu thrown on them by the labors of previous commentators, and by his own diligent re search. The book is a valuable addition tuour already large library of Shakspearean litera ture. The Maine Normal for April.
