In the admirable letters which Geo. Sand hes
published in the Psvue des Deux Mondes, upon
botany, she mentions, among the number of new
woaks upon that olence which have attracted
her attention, " The Soul of a Pleat," by M. Bos
The human soul is so often questioned, nov-a
days, that it 's not, without some surprise, that
we hear mention made of a soul in a plant. We
are quite ready to suppose that It is a figurative
expressNoa. That by th's word soul, is under
stood the color, grace, charm and attraction of
the plant; its sprightly, majestic or languishing
expre ion- ' s word, all which forms its radiant
exte,;or. But, no, the question in point is really
of vegetable psychology.
Mr. Boscowitz puts this question: " Is the plant
an animated be'ng, capable of voluntary ao,'? "
And in answer, he exhibits the most interesting
fac's of vege'" tbe life. Studied with penetration
and rege-ity, grouped with art and poetically in
tepreted, those facts appear new, although they
occur under our eves daily.
The opinion thai the acts of the plant are not
imply mechanical and physical, that is, produced
by a blind force, but that they are determined by
a clear-sighted instinct, ef the nature of that
which governs eni'als, has already been pro.
fessed by many svaens, among others, in the
eighteenth century, by Dr. Erasmus Darwin, the
grandfathber of the celebrated modern anthro
pologist. The two fervent partisans of the doc
nrine at the present day are two foreign sclentist-,
DetMor,"us and Theodore Pechner. In ancient
times Anaxagorus, Pythagoras. Plato, etc., ad.
mitted a belief in the solsd of plan's. The laws
of Manon sanction it, for they s'ats:
'' Plants and sitratls btve intetrally a con
scionsners of the'r existence, and they a!so have
'teir sotrows and their happiness."
Admitting this doctrine for a few momes',, If
we suppose that the variety of se '-'!ons in
plants is as manifold as Is th'er dversity of spe
cies. what a charming movement of life will mei
irate the vegetable world, which embraces all,
from the mod3 t flowerets of our fields to 'he
splendd, majestic, brilliant flowers of our gar
sters: t'.e strange or msaeflcent producti of the
tropical flora, to those mypteronus plants whose
sensitiveness and power of transformation ap.
prosch the miraclous.
Let us say a lew words about those excep'ionat
plan's diree*'y from which the doctor bet gaitel
an idea of the energetic vatality of the vegeible
world. M. Boscowltz particularly mentions three.
Tte inrt is the Mimosa, or sensitive plant, which,
at the least rshock or the sligh'tst jar of the soil
which hears it, folds its leaves, droops Its branches
and seems to wither in its fright. Toe o'her is the
,r-%s',- or Judean rose, or Mary's flower, as the
Arabs call it. This, when it has been fertilisaed '
a soil wuich is not suitable to receive its seeds.
detaches the root which holds it fixed, and ha' 1'
only by a thin fibril, then abandons itself to the
wind, which lifts and ecrries it to some damp,
nonrisbing soil, where it does not fear to drop i's
seeds. Drooping and fading since it unrooted
itself, it now grows erect and green again during
thbs new aend orief phase of its existence. It even
happens that it will several times resume its
freshness, but yet the exhaustion which preceded
its ,,ri'a! voyage renders it thenceforth sterile.
Sbhe resurrection Cower is still more wonder .'.
Only two indivduels born of the same plant are
known. This plant was given to Dr. Deck, a nat
uralist, by an Arab whose life he had saved.
Later, the doctor leit oneof these precious fowels
to Alexander Von Bamboldt. The Arab's gift
did not present a very attractive appearance, with
its frail stalk supporting two li.e dried and
scorched balls. But the son of the desert, who
pretended that this treasure had been found in a
tomb, upon the bosom of an Egyptian priestess,
boasted of the powerful charm of his wonderful
gift. Indeed, hardly had he moistened the fower
-but we leave M. Boscowitz to describe tbq pet
amorphoslt which Dr. Deck witnessed: "Thelrab
was right. This plant exercises a iaeffable c:m
upon the man who contemplates it. It is
watered when it begins to move, the stalk ats h
ens and the flower slowly opens, sad the
petals unfold one by one and dispose of th
selves in rays around a central point. At this
meat the flower Las the appearance of a little
daisy, but, after an instant's hesitation, it abrupt.
ly overturns its corolla and discovers Its brer-t,
upon which the seeds repose." In this last phase
it vaguely resembles the passion flower; although
smaller, ft has its form and aspect. If the per
fume and brilliancy of the passion flower ere
wanting, it has, as compensation, Iridescent tints

esme moments of active life, the plant begins to

ly the plant withers, as If struok with stupor.
Thousands and thousands of times Dr. Deck,
and, after him, M. Sames, the disciple to whom
he bequeathed the treasure, have seen thts plant
resuscitate, then decay, then revive again in the
brilliancy of its imperishable beauty.
It is not in these quite exceptional phenomena
in the vegetable world, that we must, pc-haps,
seek a proof that the plant possesses an instinuc
which incites it to this or that act, because the ex
ccption never proves anythlng conclusive, nor in.

of all the phases of the lant's existence, that
arises the demonstration of the instinctive discern.
ment which seems to direct It in it internal and
The first point of relation which exists between
the plant and animated beings is the phenomenon
of respiration. "We recognise life by its breath.
Thbaplant respires after the manner of man and
animnals, sbsrbing oaygen and setting free car
bonic acid. Yet under the influence of solar rays
the plant absorbs a great quantity of carbonic acid
at the same time that it discharges oxygen, but
it is the effect of another operation of life, nutri
t1oi. The plant then dscomipose carbonioc acid in
order to be nou ished with the carbon. The work
of n'utrition does not prevent respiration; these
two acts are accomplished amultaneously. Most
naturalists have confoounded them, wrongly sop
posing that the plant has two respirations, one
diurnal and the other nocturnal.
The rgalogy between the circulation Of the seap
and the circula*ton of the blood is not yet poai
tively demonstrated. But the phenomenon of
tmnspiration offers evident relations bet-een the
vegetable and animal kingdoms. Transpiration
of the plant, like that of animals, varies accord
uing to the hour and the season, and the degree of
elevaton or depression of the atmosphere. We
may allow that the trlanspiration of an ordinary
tree is fourteen kilogrammes nearly per day."

Mr. Catlin, however, restricts his observattoDs to
the physiological advantages of shutting the

tLme starD!iugtruths. He says:

that sleeps with the mouth open; and with man

For those who have suffered with weakness of

close my mouth in my sleeping w he $
through my boyhood, thinking
asleep I was doing well enough,
grow up under that abominable customi
iog much of the ?tme, with the mouth . |
and which practice I tooughtlessly r
manhood, with nightmare and snoringl, af
other results: and at last (as I discovered just in 1
time to savemy life,) to the banks of the Misso-ri,
where I was nightly drawing the deadly drangh'a
of cold fir, with all its poisonous malaria, threeh
my month into my laungs.
Waklug many times during the night, and finding
myselfin this painful condition, and suffering dor
ing the succeeding day with inflammation (and
some'mes bleeding) of the lungs, I became fully
convinced of 'he danger of the babit, and resolved
to overcome It, which I eventually did, only by
sternluess of resolution and perseverance, deter.
m!iniong through the day to keep my teeth and my
lips firmly closed, except when it was necessary
to open them; and strengthening this determina
tion, as a matter of life and death, at the last mo
ment of eonsciousnc'i, while entering into sleep.
Under this unylelding determination, and the
relief I began to feel from a partial correction of
the habit, I was encouraged to contione in the
norelaxed application of my remedy, until I at
length completely conqueredan usiduonus enemy
that was nightly at"cking me in my helpless po
sition, and evidently flast hurrying me to the grave.
Finding myself so evidently relieved from the
painful and alarming results of a habit which I
had recollected to have been brought from my
boyhood I became forcibly struck with the cues
tom I hah often observed (and to which I hbad be.
fore alluded, of the Indian women, pressing to
gether the lips of their sleeplng infoants, for which
I conld not, at first, imagine the motive, but which i
was now sugg sted to me in a maanner which I 5
could not misunaderstand; and appealing to them
for the object of so, apparently. cruel a mode, I r
was soon made to nnderstand, both by their wo- a
men and their medicine men, that it was dose 'to 6
insure their good looks and prolong their lives;"
and by looking into their communities, and con
trasting their anaiary condition with the bills of
mortality among the civilised races, I am ready
t admit the j.stness af thb-r reply, and am fully f,
convinced of he sadvantses those ignoront races f(
have over us .n this respect, not from being ahead y
of us, but from being hebehind as. and consequently
not so far d'arted from Nature's wise and provi- F
dent regulatius as to lose the benefit of them.
We wish that we could give the amusing wood- a
cut i1lustratr i which add to the impressivenes r
of the fo:lowing :
Watch yoor little brothers an I sisters, or little
innocent p ayfeilows, when asleep with their

tation, the unnousual beating of their hearts the
twitching of their flesh and toe cords ct their
necks and throats, and your own reason will tell
you that they do not enjoy such sleep. And, on b
t.e other hand, what pictLres of tnnoce.ce and t
er jyment are those w'o are quietly sleeping a
with their months firmy shut and their teeth
clrosed, smiling uas they ase enjying their natural

the case speculators have entered the arena, at

The case of this is that those parties who have
