THE PEElNCE OF MAGICIANS.
It is related of Lignor Blitz, that wishing one
day while in Pennsylvania, to procure a draft on
New York, for a certain amount, he stepped into
one of the country banks in that State and made
known his wishes to the proper officer, who, by
the way, was a stiff staid old Quaker. Being in
formed that he could be accommodated, he was
"In whose name shall I draw the draft?"
. " In my own. Signor Blitz," was the answer. '
" Art thou ihe.wonderful man who is pei farm
ing all these mystep'ous things V asked the Qua
ker. . . -
' The same," answered the Signor.
" And now, friend, will thee show me one of
thy tricks?" enquired the Quaker.
" With pleasure," said the Magician, and tak
inr a ouarter of a dollar from his pocket, he hand
ed it to the officer and requested him to mark it so
that he would be able to distinguish it. This the
Quaker did. 1 ' "
" And now," said the Signor, taking-a glove
from hts pocket and placing- it over the quarter,
which he had laid upon thV'cQunter, " are you
sure the Quarter is under the glove?
Quite sure,' ' answeted the Quaker, gently
lifting the glove and beholding the quarter snugly
ensconsed under it. . . .
"S'ire, quite sure?" asked the Signor.
" Yes, friend, I see it with mine own eyes," an
swered the other. '
" Lift the glove," said the Magician.
The Quaker did so, and to his consternation
the quarter was gon.
. Frirnd," said the Quaker, " wilt thou do that
Again the Quaker pi iced the quarter in the
same position, and motioning the Signor to stand
biick, the Q'iakr placed hi3 eyes down upon a
level with the counter, and (hen making a sudden
dive at the glove, he lifted it, and the quarter
was gone'. ' 1 '
-1 Jonathan," said the Quaker, drawing' a long
breath, " place that ' money," referring to the
amount received for the draft,." awny in the safe
and lock it up, and put the key in thy pocket."
Well," said the Sinor,- who i always fond
of a joke, "now I will give you a proposition. "If
I can, standing where I am, draw that money in
to my pocket, J may keep it; if I cannot, 1 will
surrender the draft, and the money is yours,'
" Go thy way, friend, thou shouldn't not do such
things," said the Quaker, politely bowing the
Signor to the door. r. .
ANECDOTE OF JENNY LIND.
As Jenny Lind was coming over from Europe,
she desired the Captain of the steamship in case
of there being any fine moonlight night, to Call
her on deck, without regard to the lateness of the
hour. Such a night did occur on the passage a
splendid moon lit up ihe heavens and the sea
while dark masses of clouds gave shadows and
variety to the glory. It was. one of those scenes
which seem to bear witness to the intellect that
the great truths of revelation are realy truths
which convince the soul that the Creator of all
things, must 'be a Being of unlimited love, arid
that beyond the boundaries of thi earthly exist
ence, opens wide still more realms of infinite beau
ty and eternal peace. Jenny and the rest of the
passengers had retired totheif berths, but the fair
Swededressed herself and came upon deck. She
contemplated the magnificent scene in silence for
a few moments and then falling upon her knees,
she began a low song to the ' Deity, full .of relig
ious fervor and reverential awe. The Captain
says that he wai never tnorft- impressed than by
this song so heartfelt, so entrancing in its angel
ic. breathings of praise. and gratitude towards the
great author of Life and Light and Glory.

Vlovi CoAt was utibE.' ' Geology has proved
that, at one pehdd, there existed an cnnrmnnslrf
abundant land vegetation; the toins or rubbish of
which, carried into seas, and there sunk te the bot
tom, and afterward covered by sand now recognize
as coal, t .This was a natural, transaction, of vast
consequence to us, seeing ; how much utility we
find jn coal, both for , warming pur dwellings and
for various manufactures, as well as the production
of steam, by which so great a mechanical power
is generated. It may 'naturally excite surprise
that the vetretahle remains .should have so com.
pletely changed their apparent character, and te
convj black... But this can be explained by chem
istry : and part of the marvel becomes clear to the
simplest understanding whom we recall the ami
liar fact, that damp hayj thrown close info' a heap,"
gives out heat, and becomes of a dark colon :-
When a vegetable mass is excluded' trbm the
air, and subjected to great pressure, a bituminous
fermentatidn ' is produced, and 'the'-result is the
mineral coal,' which is of various characters, ad
cording as the mass has been originally interming
led with sand, clay, or other eaithly imparities
On account of the change effected by mineraliza
tion, k is difficult to. detect in coaMhe tract of, a
Vegetable structure; bul these can be made, clear
JJt all except the highly bituminous caking coat,
"y cutting or polishing, it down into thin transpit
Tent slices, when the microscope"sriows the fibres
ar4 cells very plainly. From distinct 'Isolated
ff"aeM fUu m the sand-stones amidst the coal
beds, we discover the nature of the plants of .this
era. They are almost all' of a simple cellular
structure, and such as exist .with us in small forma,
(horse tails, club mosses and fens,) but advanced
ia an- enormous magnitude.' The1 -species are all
long since extinct' Tha vegetation generally is
such as now grows W clusters "of ttftpical islands f
but it must have been the result of a high temner-
ature obtained otherwise than that of the tropical
regions now is, tot trie coal strata re .found iq tjie
temperate, and even the .polar regions, i a-t n----.
; The concliisiors-theTefore, to- which most- geol
ogist have arrived is, that the earth originally bn
incandescent or highly heated massj' was gradu
ally cooled down, until in the carboniferous 'peri
od it fostered a growth of terrestrial vegetation all
o ver its surface, to which, the existing jungles of
the tropics are more barrenness in comparison.
The high and uniform . temperature, -combined
with a greater proportion of carbonic acid gas in'
the manufacture, 'could not only1 sustain a gigantic
and proli6e vegetationbut would abo create dense
vapors,' shoWers'and rains, and these again gigan
tic rivers, periodical inundations, and deltas. ;Thns
all the conditions, for extensive, deposits of wood
in extuaries would a rise from this high tempera
ture; and every, circumstance connected with the
coal measures points to such conditions. '
