And make it known
Our St hool is dune,
And I am doomed to roam.
Ilnw fondly shall 1 Ihink of thee,
O! will you all remember me,
When fur, fjr away I he,
From friends and happy ho ne.
The girla will then reply :
O! yes our fond teacher we girls will long rememb'r
Ilowyour heart did burn
To moke us learn,
As lima pnssed nwny:
And how we drove each to excel,
When noids were given hard to spell,
To reud, to write, to cipher well,
On many a happy d.iy. '
Then the boys will sing:
And we too, your boys of promise, will remember
Tint fnce of thine,
Wherj leiirnirij; shine,
When ynu'io far away.
O! we dull ne'er forgtt to tell,
What pains you louk to learn lis well,
To read, to wii'e, and then to spell,
On many a happy day.
All sinp, and repeat tho last verse:
Then Itl us nil together ever long remember
The happy hours,

We all have passed awuy.

well nnd teiideily treated as in the U. States
Morally, socally, and inleilectually, they are
the ai liimwiedged equals of nu n. In publics
unhj are they i eganled us ciphers in the
Stales. And yet these noiy champions of
Woman's Rights ate insisting upon the mon

The day that women draggles her petti
coats in the ii'tre of politics, atitl mingles with
be rowdy influences of the ballot box, the
institution of maniage will be at an end, and
society will rapidly relapse into barbaiism.
Woman has her kkiuts, as well ns her ou
niis;but they do not lie in this direction.
Mhe has a right to be beautiful; a right
be protected ; a right to exercise her coning
affections and her m iti-rnal instincts; a liht

duties are, to nurse nnd to nurture; lo mould
and to educate; to love and bless and adorn

Her true sphere' is purely a domestic one
her true home is by our hearts. And we

Wo copy that follows from the Oswego
iN. I.J 1 imcs, in relation to nn nlleded im
portant discovery in the, art of cultivation,
no means of judi'iiip' of tho discovery, or of
the degree of the character of Mr. Comstuck,
the inventor, and tlio reader must take it, as
we do, for what it is worth.
The Times of the 20th of Di-c., 1852, says:
We have been not a lillla interested by the
examination of a paper containing a mass of
matter relative to a little discovery of a prin
cipal of natural law in'vrgetatiun, by .Mr. Rus
sell Comstuck, of Mabbeltsville, Dutchess Co.
New Yotk. It appears that llv) fact of Mr.
Coms'.ock's discovery has been for some fime
betoro the public, but owing to a want of any
provision in our patent and copyright laws,
recognizing or securing reward for such dis
coveries, he lias thus lar madu hunted and
confidential communicalicns of his now agri
cultural theory, sullie.ient to test and demon
strate its practicability and importance by
actual expeiiment. As the only method by
winch he can uissumumtu and obtain remun
eration for his discovery, Mr. Comstock gives
private and confidential lectures all over the
State, wherever a sullicient class or number
of subscribers arc obtained to iusiil'v bis at
tendance, charging one dollar for admission,
and five dollars at the end of the year to
those who a lopt and make practical applica
tion of his new theory.
For two years Mr. Comstock has made bis
conlidenlial disclosures to agriculturists, and
as tiie result of the information thus commu
nicated, hi! now presents certificates nnd let
ters liom a
large nu:nber of trenlli'm in of i
gence, proln'y anil honor, nil i
leiuli ig to esl.ibli-h an 1 novo from actual
expei ioient the validity of his principle, nnd
the most rem likable results of its practical
application. The experiments prove a geivr i!
law npplicable to tin; whole vegetable king
dpin. I!y the teira-ciikuio all kinds of trees,
forest, fruit nnd ornamental, flourish; peach
trees from lifty to a hundred years old. pi.r-1
lialiy Uecaye'I anil barren, are restored to a
healthy and thrifty condition, ns when young,
in a single season, so as to produce the most
abundant nnd finest fruit. The same res.ihs
aro produced upon all fruit trees, nnd what
seems scarcely lesj rem likable, it appears
that the precise age of trees are ascertained
and detormined by Mr. Comstock's theory.
I 'J he tern culture has been applied to all
kind ; of girden vegetables, plants fruits and
! "''rubbery, l,s. a'"'. I" il'l kinds of crops, with
wonderful success. We cannot go into detail
! of wl"lt experiiner.ts have proved. Crops of
rain an 1 vegetihles are, at a great saving of
labor, more than doubled by terra-culture.
One experiment shows the production of 135
bushels of bhelli-d corn to the ncre, and an
other the production of 1000 bushels Mercer
potatoes to the acre. It is also shown that
the great crops which have commanded pre
miums nt agricultural fairs have been produ
ced aecidetiily, by terra-culture, of which we
have an evidence iu Oswego comit)'.
On the 2 Uh tilt. Mr. Comstock lectured to
a largo number of farmers of Oswego county,
at the vill i r, of Fulton, among whom was
Mr. Win. Ingell, of the town of Volney, who
f ,r the la-t two years has received the first
premium on Com nt the State Agricultural
Fair. We learn from an intelligent agricultu
rist of this city, who was also present, that
daring the course of the lecture, which has
the form of forty questions, propounded nnd
answered by tho lecturer, any person present
being nt liberty to put nnd answer questions,
1 it was clearly ascertained that Mr. Ingell pro
duced loo bushels ol corn to the acre by the
accidental application ol toe terra culture
From the evidence before us, which may
be seen at our office, we cannot resist the con
viction that Mr. Comstock's discovery of a
natural law of universal application is one of
i the most important ot the age; a discovery

The T ' imeH of ten days later date, says the
discovery is attracting n.ucb altenlion.and that
' lerra t udure Convention is proposed lo no
'odd nt Rochester, in March next, of D.jle-
gates from tin- Agricultural Societies ot isew
Yoik, to consult on the means ol making tho
discovery public. Says the times:
"There is a growing desire in this region to
bear Mr. Comstock, the discoverer of the new
science in agriculture, disclose its principles
and the operation of a natural law of vegeta
tion build to veiled lo human vision, although
old as the creation. There is something won
derfully attractive in the idea of digging out
of the mysterious economy of the physical
woi Id, a great benilicent pi inciple of inestima
ble value to the interests of mankind. If there
is any thing entitling man to the proud dis
tinction of a benefactor of his race, it is Cer
tuiuly the discovery of such a principle."

a few week since, pulled over a largo vessel
of boiling water immediately upon foot. The
appearance at first was frightful, but on the
instrant of applying the flour the e.gor-y ceased
and in half an hour almost all the appearance
of injury was removed.
Wo witnessed a successful application

a little lad struck the back of his hand against
a hot stove, burning it quite severely. The
child screamed with pain, but the moment

altliouib blisters had been formed before the
application, the smarting ceused at once, and
no trouble resulted from the burn.

Itistpjito com.non for political writers in
this country to spo ilt of tho Whig party ns
utterly extinguished. The fact that out of
2.)lS KL'ct oral votes, Gen. Scott r oeived only
42, while Gen. fierce bal 212, does certainly
indicate at first sijiht A pretty ffL-oluai dj-
feat of llij Whig party, nnd would lead a has
ty observer to the conclusion that General
Scott had no rotes at all. But a scrutiny of
the popular vjle will show a vury different
state of things. Gea. Scott received, in fact,
more witei fir were erer cxdfir a Whlj
eitwVdite hi'f'ire! The- Whig pirty never
received ho lare a popular vote as at this
last election. Gji. Scott received 11, 03 J
more votes than Gen. Taylor, 32,9,;9 more
than Mr. Polk, and 03,012 more than Gen.
Aanison. Tli3 aggregate vote cast at each
of the last four elections, with that given for
each party, was as follows:

IS52 1,373,020 1,580,001) 155,018 3,115,077
Gen. Scott was not defeated, therefore, be
cause ho had no votes, nor because the Whig
vote bad fallen off, for it had very largely in
creased. But the Democrat') vote had in
creased still more beimr 240,o0,i nreater
than was ever cast befure, and 304,240 grea
ter than was cast fur Gen. Cass. Most of
this increase, enme from tho Free Soil party,
which fell off 130,880, nearly all of which
was cast for the Democratic candidate in this
canvass, ns it had been withdrawn from thut
party in 1848.
Another t.kut shown by this statement Ims
interest us indicating tau manner in which
taking the vote by State instead of by iren-
eral oallot, allects tliu resu.t. It Hie election
had been had directly by a general vote of
tho people, General I'ierce would have been
elected hy an .absolute majority of only 57,
741 receiving 1, 580,703 agair.at 1,528,0J8,
given for tho other two c m.li I i'.cj ins m i
j'irity being thus not one jij'ticl'i p'trt of the
aggregate vote. I!ut it was taken by States;
and, being thus distributed, it gave him an
absolute majority ol out ol lioi eiectorr.l
votes, or it majority of more than ume teiitt
ol the whole number cast, tins result exhib
its in a very curious manner, the working of
our federal system; as it gives the saccesiful
candidate tho appearance of having been elec
ted almost unanimously, whereas, in point of
fact, his vote was less than two per cent, grea
ter than that given to his opponent.
We refer to those statistics now, bimply as
showing that it is two soon to pronounce the
Whig party absolutely dead No party, wbiyh,
under such circumstance? as those of the re
cent canvass, cast very nearly n million and a
half of votes, and within two hundred thou
sand of its opponents, can b'l properly con-
sidered extinct. It may not renew the con-
test in precisely its old shape, nor upon exact-
ly the same issues which have been prominent
hitherto. Indeed, at no two successive P.vs-
ideuli.i! elections, have tho questions at stake
been quite the same, and they arc likely to be
modified hereafter more considerably than
they have been hitherto. But unless the in-
coming administration shall be wiser, more
united, and more fortunate than has often
fallen to the lot of the dominant parly, the
1,373,020 citizen i who c ist their vo'.es for
Whig candidate at the last election, will
find their services a-'iiin called into reouisi-1
tion. 1 hey seem inclined just at present to
watch and wait content to float quietly up
on the stream of public sentiment, leaving
the Ship of State to the guidance of those
who have become the responsible pilots, but
ready, doubtless, to make a new struggle for
the helm whenever all on board shall clearly
see the rocks o-.i which the goodly craft may
be in danger of wreck.

lor the Emperor s pleasure, and the diversion
of his liege subjects, by M. Fotild and others,
is jut now moving on "the big figure." It is
called the "Suckle (Jeuertde du Credit ,Vo
bilier," which, we take it means in Yankee
vei nacular, a bank of fast going credits. 1 he
capital is the least of its features. That
rapidly improved on the ratio of live or ten
fold by the issue of forty-five days or longer
Post Notes, bearing 3J per cent, interest.
The subscribed capital is 120,000 shares of
500 francs, or about 100 dallnrs each, equal
to $ I 2,000,000. Upon this, the bank can is
sud live times the amount in these Post Notes,
ano lend the proceeds on Railway Bunds or
Shares. Only 50 per cent, of tho capital
yet paid ill, and consequent'' $00,000,000
may be issued on 5,000,000.
After tho whole is paid up, the issue may
be ten-fold, or tlO'000,000. The Society
are not to put forth notes in any one year
for a sum that shall bo more than twice as
much as their capital. With this restriction
they can take any quantities of Stock or Rail
way sharos they may think lit, and give their
own paper in payment. Ono of their fiist
operations, menlioned in the London Times
was to subscribe 8 000,000 to a loan of $40,

THE SCHOOL BILL.
This Bill has passed the Senate by a vote
of 22 to 2. We bare not seen a copy of it as
passed, but underslan I it substantially as re
ported by the Committee. The main sug
gestions of the Ohio Teachers' Association are
embodied in the Hill, and, pci lisps on the
whole, it is tho best Common School law in
existence. The House, we trust, will also
pass it without mutilation.. The Purest Cil'j
has gathered the main featues of the Uill from
peech of Senator Kicit, as follows:
"An important feature in the bill is the pro
vision by which libraries, and Webster's Una
bridged Dictionary are to be furnished to ev
ery school district in the State, as soon as the
tax for that purpose will admit.
The bill reorganized, simplifies, and renders
far more efficient, the whole school system of
tho Stale. It provides thnt each township
shall be regarded as one district, and be con
fided to n township board of education, for
general purposes, connected with the educa
tional interests of the township, tho Board to
be composed ol certain local directors, rota
tion. The present school districts are recog
nized as sub-districts, in which the local direc
tors are to be eU cted, and to whom are confi
ded the nffairs of the sub-districts, with sun
dry limitations. The Township Board is in
vested with full powtr to establish such num
ber of graded, central or high school in the
to.vnsh'p, as tiie public interest may seem to
require. It is also made the duty of tho Hoard
to bstimatu annually, and certify to the Audi
tor of the proper county tho entire amount of
money necessary to sustain tbo schools in the
I townsbiii fur seven months, and for other
school purposes, which is to be levied upon
j the taMiblo property of the township, equally
except in certain cases, and b-i collected by
j thtt county treasurer as other taxe.
The Board has alto power to chango the
boundaries of bub-districts as may best pro-
mote the interests of the schools, and to assign
to each sub-district not less than sixty live
scholars, except when reduction of that num
ber becomes indi-punsible.
As provided in ibis bill, the county Board
of school examiners are to be appointed by
the Probate J ujge, and paid for ll.eir services
from the county treasury; and therefore are
not allowed to receive a fee Crom the applicant
for graining a certificate. This arrangement
it is believed, will secure faithful examina
tions, and remove all inducement to grant
certificates to u squauiiecl persons.
Another leading feature of the bill, and
ona which educationists, regard as vital im
portance, is f. provision for tha State Com
missioner of common schools, to ba elected by
Mr. Kite closed his able speech in the fol
lowing truthful nnd eloquent language:
'It is certainly much easier, as well as much
wiser, lo educate than to punish. How much
of crime would bo prevented, if a higher or
der cf education were generally diCused a
mong all classes). A well educated and en
ligbteiiud people will have but little occasion
for criminal courts, jails, and penitentiaries.
The educated man has ordinarily too much
regard fur moral principle, and tho value of a
good character to stoop to crime. Iu short,
tir, the perpetuity of the government, and se
curity of the citizen, and of property, depend
upon the virtue and iiitcHiguuco of the people.
By the provisions of this bill, it is intended
to make our common schools what they ought
to be the colleges of tho people "cheap
enough for tho poorest, and good enough for
the richest." With but a slight increase cf
taxation, schools of different grades can be es-
tablished and maintained m every township

our farmers and mechanics have an opportu

with the more favored of our land. And in
this way, the elements of mind, now slumber

due uuw i ought marble in the quarry, will be
until! ed and brought out to challenge the ad
miration of the world."
Great Wire Bridge.
It is known that there i3 no regular bridge
communication across tho Potomac between
tho District and Alexandria, A proposition
for tha erection of an imraonsj wire suspen
sien bridge has been submitted to the c rpor
a'ion of Georgetown, by Charles Eilct. Esq .
The bridge Mr. E!let propose is a wire
suspension bridje, of such size nn 1 weight
as lo be competent to tha uses of Railroad,
as well ,is ordinary travel. At the preferred
point nt the Three Sisters, the river is I.03C
feet wide, which would bo tho length of a
bridge there. This distance Mr. Ellet pio-
posvs to span with a single arch declining to
use the granite rocks which lie in tbv river in
the line of the proposed structure. The cost
of this strut-Lire ha sets down at 1297,870,
but says that if the bridge be divided into
two spans bv a pier on the aforesaid ro, ks the
cost would be only 5240,000. Ho prefers
the single span, however, on account of its
handsomer Hppearance. This bridge be
stales would be four times heavier and stout
er. Mini therefore four timea stronger, than
the Wheeling suspension bridge, (of w hich
Mr. Ellet was constructor,) and would more
than sustain the simultaneous pressure or
weight of two locomotive engines with their
tenders, forty loaded freight cars; one hun
dred loaded carts on the carriage ways, and
one hundred horses, enough lo occupy the
bridge from end to end, nnd in nil amoun
ting to six hundred tons weight. Toltdo Re
