.Sis Sopiarkable TideV
About ths time of the vernal equinox, at a
toSiat soaiwhere soutp ot dJorneo, ths sea com
pfwintnces to rise and -expand. A circular swell
m tnrswa on, au rauisie tuu asiumsuiDg ra-
piJitj, but with constantly decreasing volume,
until it haa traversed o ne- quarter of the earth's
circuaferenca in every direction. It then be-
"ins closing in upon the antipodes of tkein-
itial point, and gathering strength tmit nar-
no ws" (precisely as it lost it in widening) it
comes together with terrific force, piling it
self into avast mountain of water, and shoot
ing an enormous column upward to tho very
clouds. Its subsiding is accompanied with
frightful aqueous, atmoaphsric, and probably
oloctrical disturbances, the precise n&turo of
which, for obvious reasons, has not been de
termined. It would be natural to suddosa that
the obstacle to this roller' advance th con
tiaents. islands asd whales would materially
ratardits progress in certain of its parts, des
troying ita symmetry, if not actually breaking
it up; but this is not tho case. I have been
uuabl anywhere to find a eatisfactory expla
nation of this remarkable tide, and I shall be j
infinitely opliged if tome on well versed in
sirailar phenomena will make it clear to me. ;
If I may not be enlightened upon this point, I
wc-uld still wish to know what there is impossi
ble about it. If all the world bolioTed it, you
would probably say it reited upon the most un-

not believo it is puroly accidental : owing en
tirely to the fact that we chance to have the
means of disproving it a fact in no way con
asctcd with the phenomenon in question, for
faat would or would not occur precisely the
same if we were all in the moon. Anyhow, we
all believe scores of things quite as improbable
as this, for the sole res son that they please us,
and nobody cau disprove them. For mypart,be
ing r landsman, I shall stiek to my tide-wave
with a clinging faith, happy in tho confidence
that nobody can demonstrate the falsity of my
belief without taking me to sail upon the sea ;
and I won't go. Oeerlaiul Monthly,
A story of tbo lively lives of tho aboriginal
Inhabitants of ths Is.hmus ,of Darien, comes to us
by jy of Paoatat. .A doUjaticc of these gentle
s.ivs.sts baring viaked that eity on a matter of
bujiaiia the wer instantly iaierviowed by a oit
isett io infectious is a bad habit ; and the loeal
papers spread tbeir ttory l9fore the wolrd. The
aboriginal mind appeirs t-i havs opened under the
application of stilliui cruss-oue5tioning, like a
flower under the sun of spring, and with a par
donablo prids the gntU people boasted of their
frsadoia from the corruption:) of civilization. They
wars asked what they did with their thieves aad
murderers, but the question causod thorn to open
taair dovo-lik oyos in mild astonishment ; they
declared that in their happy villages nobody stole
froia or murdered another ; and so to them tho
punishment, of death, forced labor, and peniten
tiaries Tfore unknown. One missionary haa visited
thess people, bat they asked for what ? He could
do no good. They behevf in God. What moro
eould be desired ? Their religion being thus sim
pis and pure, they need no preaching. Tho lan"
guage they speak ia described as singularly sof
and beautiful. They toil not, neither do they spin,
for the osrth yioldu spontaneous dinners, and tho
untutored mind of the dweller upon tho banks of
the running streams requires no other drink than
tho purest vrater. It is pleasant to know that this
guileless race is within tho reach of the curious
traveller but if civilization should chance to en
croach upon them, its native simplicity might
vanish. M. Y. Commercial Advertiser.

suggested never departed from his mind; and

pendulum, and thus yave the world one of the
most important instrumenuts for measuring
time. Afterward. whn living at Venice, it
was reported to him one day, that the children
