It was repented in a lecture to the young tnen of Columbus a few weeks ago, and there was hardly a dry eye in the house at its conclusion.

The clock in the steeplestrikes one; You said von were coming right home from the shop, As som ns yourdiy's work was tone.

Father, dear father, conir home with ine now, The clock in the »tceple strikes three ; The house is so lonely—the hours are so long F r poor weeping mother and me !

The clock was so made as to he capable of performing the following movements: There was on it a negro, a shepherd and a dog. Whep the clock struch the shepherd played six tunes on his llute, and the dog approached and fawned upon him. The clock was exhibited to the King of Sp tin, who was greatly de lighted with it. "The gentleness of my dog," said Droz, is bis least mer it. If your majesty touch one of the tipples you see in the shepherd's basket, you will admire the fidelity of this animal." The King took an apple, and the dog flew at his band and barked so loud that the King's dog, which was in the same room during the exhibition, began to bark also, at which the superstitious cour tiers, not doubt ins; that it was ati af fair of wichcraft, hastily left the room, crowing tlieiii«elre« a« they went.

The South irnmediately commenced im |i"rt ng into Km* is the *luv.s nti>l the Nor h commenced importing frtvmen. Freedom, as is always t»>e rnse wl.m the chances tire equal, far outstripped slavery, and the result was the murder and assas sination of the Missouri Uoider llufHans and other Southern desperado's. The John Biown raid followed, for which I nm mi apologist, and liiown met his fate upon Ihe guiln ws. The Lecomptno const it u tion matter followed, und then tho Dred Scott Decision, and in 18U0, the South having used D mglas ns far as they could threw him overboard at ihe Charleston Convention, and ilieii and there commenced the cheri-hi'd scheme of secession. Then fi.lloxvcu tlie cauvasi of 1800. with Lin coln, Douglas and Ilrvckcni idgo in tlic field, ih J res It of which was ihc nlccti n of Abtahnm Lincoln, nnd tho rebellion followed. The issue was the extens on or tin* non-extension of shivery. It was the old irrepressible conflict between freedom and slavery, wich commenced in 1820. It is n singular coincidence tlrit in the same year that the Pilgrim Fai Iters liid the foundation of American liberty at Ply mouth. the funndalion of American slave ry -vns laid in Virginia by the importation ofa cargo of negroes, it was then and there this irrepressible conflict commenced. Uavng spread with the growth of the country, the close of the Uevolntion found it in almost every State, and yet tlios • great and good rani who created the na tion and formed the Government regirded it as a greit evil, and cageily looked for ward to its extermination. With that was provided in the Constitu tion of these United States that " the mi gration or importation of such p> rsons as any of I lie States now existing: shill think proper to ndinit, slmll nut be orohih ited l>y the Congress prior to the year 18 08, but th'it a lax or duty div be imposed." &e. Congress did in ISOB prohibit the African slave trade, made it piracy aud the punishment <!c;;th. lint contrary to all expectulions with tl o increase in the cotton tr.ido, slavery extend ed into new Territory, and in 1818 Missomi ni'p'icd for arlniission into the Union as u slave State. The friends of freedom o! .jet t ed to this as contrary to the KJ >irit of our institutions and the intention of the frnmers of onr Govcrnn e it.

The chief of these arches was one of Iron and coal, to which the Earl of Dudley contributed twenty-live tons from a fatuous colliery, soma of it be ing 1k wn into blocks of two tons each. There was also an arch com posed of hardware and Japanned goods, among which coal scuttles were quite conspicuous. TUANSKOUMATION OF MOTION INTO llKAT. —Numerous instances of this transformation occur dailv ; that it •» ' t certainly takes places, even in the case of fluids, has been demon strated in the most satisfactory man ner by M. IJenuie. HE boiled an egg by merely placing it in a vessel which contained about ten pounds of water, and which was made to re volve 232 times iu a minute. It is clear that in this case motion was the only possible source of heat; and the result was tho more striking, as the friction of fluids is so very much less than that of solids. PANAMA llATS. —Guavqnil is the great, depot for Panama hats, eight luindred thousand dollars' worth be ing sold annually. The grass of which they made is found chiefly in tho neighboring province of San Cristoval. They can be braided only in the night or early in the morning, as the heat iu the day-time renders tho grass brittle. It takes a native about three months to braid one of the finest quality, and some hats which look like fine linen arc valued at fifty dollars apiece even there. PRACTICAL HINTS.—A coating of

three parts lard and one part rosin applied to farm tools of iron or steel will eventually prevent rust. Common nails heated red-hot and dropped into u< Id water will clinch and answer the purpose of wrought nails. Rusty nails may bo drawn from wood without difficulty, by first giv ing them a blow hard enough to start them 11 little. man v holms been 1 ivi*»in the Indian country for al»out twenty vearn, and who ha* jn»t returned ho:ii<*. «ay<> tin* nnwf ih4al4r t«*aUirc in ihr lirilititioa during (hut tb» uliinf <4 thr b«;«tUr t§*-« «»iru In tw to (W Wrk nt lW«r rxl W a4>k. tits' 4* t Ihwk tk* |» «jpf»» ati iriMT Is** pffM Til 1 1 £w' o 111 mw if <• "f i« **» M v*c«r <Mto~"*otohr to i ini'l*. mm*i trnm maaßto* hm hwk ■to j»m *••< «• c at «m6>t to 11 n>i ttor to» jitoi ii * « tor toanbtff It m Mb * toto* *«tor AnF* G,nmmwe Ttm £yjT* >' ■ 'Mr* l ■ / - flHP*' - * +mmmr «w *' » t' * "as rw tt Mt ft Me njtt. t«t i."* tktakiax d *«Ri riuV T<> *-tut**tze M !*• rWrli. |«a>a ■« a !>■ t gr "-rr. a»'<i W jfUiN-it. jf it_ as , J l«< iilo«r tii* I>»4* r>t It ruct !t.

POOL. —Ourold friend, a few nights since came homo very late from a siege at pool. His wife was asleep. When she awoke in the morning, who found upon the floor a marble, which had dropped out of her hus band's pocket when he came to bed, upon which was the figure 17." "What is this?" sh3 said to her lord. He opened his eyes, looked, blushed, was confused and stam niored, " Why—why—that's a mar ble, ain't it ?" " Yes," said she, but what are you doing with a marble in your pocket ?" "In my pocket? Well—ah ! the fact is, I've had that marble in my pocket for the last forty years—ever since 1 used to play for keeps with Hill ,» "Indeed?" incredulously asked his wife, " but what are these fig ures on hero for? What does 17 mean !" "17 mean !" said lie, hesitatingly. " Oh, 17, why that was the number of marbles litill owed me when we quit playing; ho marked it on there so 1 wouldn't forget it." COOKINO TROUT IN CAMP.— Stick your knife in the back, and slash his gills the first thing. (Always bleed your fish as soon as you land him, it makes his flesh hard.) When you are ready for supper mako a small incision at the throat and draw the cntrals. Then fill him up with a wedge of fat pork or bacon. Wrap him in several thicknesses of paper, well wet, (oak loaves will do,) and lay hi in in tho hot ashes, covering well with ashos and coals. Leave him in from twenty minutes to half an hour, when you may unearth him, and eat with whatever condiments you uiay like. The first thing you'll do iicxt morning will be to go tith ing.

At a meeting of this lodge, one of the young lady officers had no table. A polite young gen tleman steped to one of the rooms, and soon returned with a wash stand, from which ho had removed the bowl, and pitcher. Accepting the thanks of the'lady, he gracefully bowed and resumed his seat (be tween a couple of blooming damsels,) when, to his horror, he discovered upon the lower shelf of the wash stand a domestic convenience in the crockery lino, which ho had neg lected to remove. Blushing, ho shot from the hall without even "ad ois." The lady survives. CONSTITUTIONAL IDEAS. —Thad. Steven's conception of Constitution al Government may be measured by tho bill he introduced in the House of Representatives, a few days since, which provides for tho establish ment of 6chools in tho District of Columbia for tho education of the whites and blacks indiscritninally; which proposes to disfranchise all pa rents who do not send their chil dren to said schools. It is hard to realize the fact that such a proposi tion emanated from the leader of tho popular branch of our National Leg islature, and not from an inmate of a lunatic asylum.— Call. j(j@-The Indian famine, which has, in this country, attracted but littlo more natico than any other event in foreign lands, has, it is Baid destroyed more than 2,000,000 peo ple. 80 great a culamitv as this, which, had it occured in Europo or America, would have filled the wot id with horror, is but the theme only of a lew uewspapor paragraphs nothing more.

TIIE BRAIN IN SPEEI\—The princi pal evidence as to the state of the hu man brain in sleep, is derived from the observation of a woman in Mont pelicr—a case well-known and often quoted. She had lost a portion of the skull cap, and the brain and its membranes were exposed. When she was in deep or sound sleep the brain lay motionless ; when she WM dreaming, it become elevated, and when her dreams, which she related on walking, were vivid or interest-' ing, the brain was protruded through the cranial aperture. This condition has also been experimentally brought about and observed in animals, and the same result has been seen, name ly that in sleep the surface of the brain and its mcmbranco became pale, the veins ceased to the disten ded, and only afew small vessels con l taining arterial blood wore discerni ble. AVERAGE DURATION OF LIFE. —In tho latter part of the sixteenth cen tury, one half of all who were bom died under five years of age—eight een years being at that tirao the av erage longevity. In tho seven* teenth century," one-half of tho pop ulation died under twelve years ; but in the first sixty years of tho eight eenth century,one-half of the popula tion lived over twenty-seven years and in the latter 40 year onc-lmlf ex ceeded 82 years of age. At the be ginning of tho present ceutury, one half exceeded forty years ; from 1838 to 1845, one-half exceeded forty-three years ; and the average longevity at these successive periods has been in creased from eighteen years iu the sixteenth century Up to forty-four in the nineteenth, by tho last reports. LOVE OF CDILDREN. —TeII me not of the prim, precisely arranged home*, where there are uo children ; where, as the good German has it, the fly-traps always hang straight against the wall, tell me not bf the never disturbed nights and days; of the tranquil, unanxious bearts,where dhildren arc not ? I care not for these things.
