The ocean is not a bottomless deep,;x
I except to the poets and to young ladies,
neither of whom are familiar willi the mod
ern improvements in taking soundings. Not
j only have skilful seamen known h#w to
j reach the bottom and fetch parts of it lt])
j to tlie top from great depths, but mathema
i tieiaas have ?riven themselves the trouble to
? calculate theoretically its average depth.
! ?aiion gave this at 21'.) fa'homs. or 144.0
j feet ; Laca i ile gives tiona 2 7 H fathoms ;
j Laplace, erroneously estimating the mean
j elevation of the land at o2S0 feet-three
j times the height now allowed by physical
geographers-thought the waters of thc sea*
must be of about equal depth.* Young as
signed a depth of 27?>5 lathoins to the
Atlantic, and about ;>800 fathoms to the
? great South Sea. According to this esti
! mate, other mathematicians adel, the Pacific
I must be at its deepest point fifteen and a
i half miles in depth, which is scarcely proba
: ble But though little is known of t!:e
j greatest depths of the oceans, we do know
j'that their bottoms are of unequal depth,
I and that they contain mo LUI tains as well as
vast rolling plains; and 31r. Reclus takes
advantage of such soundings as bsve been
made to illustratnite in a striking manner
j the in?i|uaities of the bottom. ' If. he* re

were sudden 1 v lowered about 110 tat horns,
it would be divided into three distinct sheets
of water ; Italy would be joined to Sicily,
Sicily would be united by an isthmus to
Africa, the i>,nuanciles and the Bosphowis
would be dosed, but the outlet of GilbraJtar
j would remain in free communication with
j the Atlantic Ocean., if the level were
I lowered by about 550 fathoms, the ??geau,
the EuxiuG, and tlie Adriatic would wholly
disappear, or omy leave in their beets unim
portant pools; the remainder of the M edit

I like the Caspian, either isolated, or eouiniu
i ni?ating with each other by narrow chan
! nels, and the terminal promontory of Europe
j would be joined by the isthmus of Gibraltar
I to the mount nus of Africa A depression 0
of about Hot) fathoms would leave nothing
but three inland lakes ; - to the west, a trian
guiar basin occupying the ceutre of the

Eating Without an Appetite.
Ii is wrong to cat without and appetite, for
it shows there is no gastric juice in thesttfm
adi, and that nature does not need, and not
needing it, there being no fluid to receive
and act upon it. it remains there only to pu
tri iy. tlie very though of which should be
sufficient to deter an y man from eating with
out au appetite it is a mistaken course, for
irs only result is to cause one to eat more;
when already an amount lias been eaten bc
youd what the gastric juice is able to prc
parc.
Tho object to be obdamcd is a largeer sup
piy of gastric juice, not a large supply ot
food; and whatever fails to h : ve any eifici
er.ey toward the care of dyopeptfe diseases.
The format ioq of gastric juice is directly
proportioned to the wear and tear o? th .
system which is to be the means of supply
ing, and this wear and tear can only bethe
result of exercise. The (Efficient remedy for

Punctuality.
We admire punctuality, and we can have
but little patience with those persons wh<
are so regardless of it, even in little things
as to continually break their word, under the
impression that "lt is of no consequence, i
will all be understood, and amount t) the
same thing in the end.;' as many often say j
to excuse their everlasting habit ofbei ag false
to their word. There are some people-wini
seldom or never do as they promise: Thev
habituate themselves to promise am"thing and
everything without ti?e least thought of ful
fillment We could nam? some persons ol
t his sort, who in other respects are worth)
people: but they can not commend confidence
because their word is not regarded \V-e can

PUVSIOGNOM?.
There is no science in their pretensions
to which nia a kind are mire apt to com
! mit grevions mistakes, than in the sup
posed very obvious one of-physiognomy.
1 quarrel t.ot with the principies o? thi?
science, as they are laid down by the
learned professors; much less am 1 dis
j po&d, with some people, to deny its exis
i te nee altogether as au inlet of knowledge
: that can be depended upon. I believe
that there is, or may be, au art to -'read
j the intnd's construction in the face.'.1 But
then, in every species of reading, so much
depends upon the eyes-*of the reader; if
they! are blear, or apt to dazzie, or mat
tentive, or strained with too much atten
tion, the optic power will infallibly bring
home false reports of what it reads- How
often do wre say, upon a cursory glance at
a stranger, what a fine, open*countenance
he has, who, upon second inspection,
proVcsHo have the exact features of a
knaqe. Nay, on much more intimate
ocqiKii n tance, how a delusion of this kind
sli d! continue for months, years, and
then break up all at once.
Ask the married man, wlio has been
so but for a short space of time, if those
blue eyes, where, during so many years of
anxious courtship, trujh; sweetness, sere
nitv, seemed to be Witten in eharaters
which cou kl not be misunderstood-ask
him if the characters '-which they now
convey be exactly the samc$ if for truth
he does not read a duli .virtue ((he mimic
of constancy), which changes not, only
because it wants the judgment to make a
preference; if for sweetness lie does not
read animal tranquility, the dead pool of
the heart, which no breeze of passion can
stir into health? Alas! what is this book
of the countenance good for, which, wfcen
wv?iave read so lon?:, and thought that
we understood \ts contents, gives its a
countless list of heart b eakins errata at

Mv friends, if there is anv man whom,
from the bottom of my heart, I pity, It is

whom I feel a deep regret, as for a man

AMERICAN MORALS.
THE grand evils which menace the peer
j51e of America now are not to be found in
ene conuptious of municipal or national
rule. The reign of the rings is broken, or
tottering to its foll, and vile men are hast
ening to relieve themselves o?. the odium
which attaches to it. Even l hose who seek
to form new combinations for personal pow
er sad profit Jmd it uphill, work, and fail to
make their hftrigucs fruitful. The wrong
which no^ront us, and wait with despera
tionj or tr?Sb?irtg io be rigVed, are "connee
tedi wi th tee great Railroad corporations
amt their?ieombiuatio% and J^oaopulies.
The people by .whose consent, and tor whose
benefit, these railroad, vv*eie built-railroad
to which have been dt#$$ed enrgg^tfisareas
of public lands and stupendons^trcrogatives
and privileges-are determined io lin ve
something to say abone their niau igemeiit,
and deteruii ued .that^la^rx^f^^^hai? b *

built them and *rt^ a^u^isterfhg -"their
aifairs are man i puk ting or controlling leg
islatures, and superfluously e inching ?ll
connected with them,{while tae armer can
not get a paying return for his wheat at his
doos, and the cjnsuuier buys his bread at:an
exorbitant price. Thefig&t of the pe ople
widi these monstrous powers is begun,
and is to be 1113 great tight of the next t.ven
ty yews. The issue is not doubtful, though
it aiay be long delayed. Little Vermont
fiuds to her surpise I hat she has been impo
sed upon, and havens to d ) her people jus
tice; and it is safe to predict that in five
years the railroad kings, and the overbear
ing monopolies, and the cor po ?tions which
run railroads for the benefit ol' their maua
i gor?, will be s J thoroughly 4 iuvesti^a ed''
j that they will lind it fm* tueir interest to
conduct ?hoir operations with a degree ol'
deferential reference to ilie interest or the
people whom they have cheated* and op
pressed.
It seems to us thal there is at this time
a very healthy public sentiment. No public
iniquity lives without protest. No wrong
doer sits easy aud unconcerned in his place
Th> old apithy under wrong and misrule is
j passed away. The od elements in society
j aud politics aro fall o. hope and courage;
j and we believe it to be useeptioie of proof

A NKW PARTY.
Since thc advent into Fjouisianna of Sen
ator Mutt. li. Carpenter, we observe symp
toms ol'a movement having for its endsand
objects the formation of a new .party The
basis of'his organization, at this time, is
rather vague! Iis beginning is heralded by
"Roundabout" of the Time in a supposed
interview with a prominent colored and
ff bite man. Taking it from his standpoint
of view, and from his trving to write down
one class of colored men. and fraternizing
>vith another, his plan ison?y tikflrvide the
-colored voters, j^o?- .make su^jj$e,leQfcions
from them asare not obnoxious^ ul-behave4
troublesome, or "pestiferous ' &his kind of
politicians. 8 >
Now it may be that the ti inf *fys arrived
when a political union of the tVo races in j
this State can bcveUfisuimnated, but we*!
must b.^a38ow ii to state oar gppans why
?re ?io uot believe it will succeed at this
time.
First We are satisfied th irt^Pj attempt,
as 4>r,?p ^sed hy -'Rounda&O?t^^??^fe T?*i

greater aroa than even New '"wwR?f W'irs
little coterie. Neither can it be maniduia
ted or controlled by those who have bat
little experience in such great and impor
tant matters.
Second This movemegt must include
the who.'e State and uot s'inpiy New Orleans
True, there if might start, but it must'not
be confined to its limits nor to its ceoizens
alone. The whola State'must be included
aud the people-nor fifty-aius?; be consul
te!.
We see it stated that a .committee of fif
ty (whitey citizens propose to meet fifty co
lored citizens, and together, propose some
pian for a political union
Now it strikes as that this is a curious
way to start this movement Where will the
fifty white citizens derive any author itv to i
art for so large a voting populado i as is in |
Louisiana? Again. How will fifty white
citizens pave the way for the fifty colored
citizens to meet with them? We heard
whi st we were in New O rica us lately, that
certa ii: prominent white gentlemen were
about to give a spfcndid dinner at .Vi?reau s
to someeeruun colored gentlemen of acer
I tain persuasion. At this dinner the matter
? woiihl be broached, and steps taken to put
the plans into execution. Again we iiave
been informed personally by certain white
gen? icm m in Xew Orleaiu, thar, there will
be an ope? recognition of our civil rights
accorded to us That we ?viii have access to
ail places of amusement, cafes, theatres,
steamboats, soloonsj public houses and in
fact every civil T?glvt windi ts now enjoyed
by the G ia eas lian.s This is the written,
public pian nf the authors of thc ucw party.
What the unwritten and secret part of the
programme is, ruts not yet been dcvelop&l, |
but we w mu? here remark that in our opin
ion neither the dinner not; the acknowledge
ment, ofour civil rights will be accepted by
tiie colored men, unless it be in the full let
ter ?nd spirit nf the law, a?d untrammell
ed with any degrading contingencies. For
inst.mee, of the cofo?? 1 man is asked to ig

edgeai mc of his vii rights only rf he wi!1
give up Ins adhesion to Republic i ism and
its pr inciples, and follow blindly the course
of his uew allies, without hesitation or full
enquiry. No, if civil rights is be accord

them as free ts the air ot i eav?u untram

degree. Ic olten agrees to try all plaus be
fore il does the only safe one,and generally
goes through the whole catalogue of blund

reasonable method of setting a difficult pro
