"COMMENCEMENT WEEK AT THE IN'
Tax sixth session of the Tarnonar FswArrs
lusrerrs,.commences on Monday the lt prox.
imo. It is with leelings mingled with pride and
satisfation that we again call the: attention
of parents to. this laudable Intitution, now in
the 4th year of its existence. Its arse is till
ewarud, and the prospets for the future are, if
possible, still more flattering to its fouder and
prjector, who leaves nothing undone that has
a tendency to add to its worth or advance its
The citisas of our thriving town, and the in.
habitants of the surounding country, bhad long
fei the need of,a iustitution ofthis kind; and
sace .the first organization they have nobly
0setributed to its sustenance. The benefits doe.
aned, and the intellecrualand moral advancement
of the rising generation of the softer sex, is via.
ibis to all. It has given a new tone to society,
as well as extended beneficial results over al.
most every object within the pale of its influence.
The education of the formales of our country,
especially with us, has heretufore claimed but
little attention; in fact, it was deemed almost
supeotuous. But experience has wrought a
change, far more suitable and congenial to the
happiness of the conunut,.!t. The education of
females in all the higher branches of a classic
education, is now no more deemed unnecessary
or superfluous, but on the contrary, it is viewed
is the. opposite light. The mother being the
a.-ural and legitimate tutrix of her offsprng,'it
is highly essential that she should be possessed
.t every endowment, in order that she should
more fully.naculcate the precepts of virtue, and
to aid her young in a formation of correct gpv.
e.png priaciples by which they are to be actu
axed in alter life. It is to them tbha rightly be.
loigp the task of "teaching the young ideas bow
to shoot." How all-important is it then that
they should not only receive a liberal educatium,
but aleslbatthey shoald be fully versed in all
the gi r degrees of learning I With sucb
alnaasas these, we never need despair of our
stit.Wtiona..s on the contrary, they will grow'

Tas Womax or C&.aon.xa.-Of the wo
men, with their witchery of manner, it is not
easy, or rather it is possible fora stranger to
speak with impartiality, inasmuch as our self.
love is naturally enhlisted in favor of those who,
is every look wme and gesture, have apparent
ly no other end in view than the pleasure of
pleasing us. With regard, however, to their
physical charms, as distinguished from the ad.
ventitious accomplishments of education, it is
dilcult even for a willing pen to exaggerate. In.
depeodentlyof tellingor motion, their sparkling
eyes sad glaesy hair are in themselves sufficient
to negative the idea of tameess and insipidity;
while their sylph like forms evolve fresh graces
at every step, and then eloquent featureseclipse
their own inherent comeliness by the higher
bemty of exprselion. Though doubtless flly
oonmiou of their attractions, yet the women of
Clkrnis, their credit he it spoken, do net
"befli thdr aldrorscoumt their time," being
on the contrary by far the more industrious half
of the population. In California such a thing
as a white servant is absolutely unknown, inas.
much as eaither mao nor woman will barter
freedom in a country where provisions are actu.
ally a drug, and clothes almost a superfluiy; and
accordingly in the absence od intelligent assis.
tant, the Brst ladies of the province, particularly
when treated, as they seldom are, by natirve
ushands, with kindnese and consideration, dis
charge all the lighter duties of their households'
with cheerfalnese and pride. Nor does their
plain and simple dress savor mouch of the toilet
They wear a gown sufficiently short to display!
Itheir neatly termed loot and ankle to their white
stookings and black shoes, while perversely
enough they bandage their heads in a handker.
chie so as to conceal all their hair except a
single loop on either cheek ; round their sboul.
ders, moreover, they twis a shawl, throwing
over all when they walk, or go to mass, the
"bealtifruland mysterious mantilla"
If Sir George impson is coect ina the above
description, we :hope that when California
comes into the possession of the United States,
that the dignity gives to labor by the matrons
of the west, wjil not give place to the insipid
prejudice with which labor is looked upon by,
too many o) our republican dames.-Sientjfc
CoL. ETrºa Aurt..-We have heard one an.
ecdote of Allen, which we believe has not been
seen in print. Mr. B., attorney at Vermont,
once received froam some person in Boston, a
note of hand for £80 against Alle., for collec
tion. It being iiconvenient for him at that
timoe to pay the note, it was sued.-When the
'case came on for trial, Allen employed a law.
ver tu get the action contined until he could
rai.eili money to seide the delsand, sad ac
cordingly the attorney, as the readiest means o
'accomplishing his object. determined to deny
the genuineness of the sigaature. This would
oblige the plaintiff to procure the witnesses to
the note, who residing in Boton, could not ea.
jily be brought lorward on the instant; the ef
fiect f this manerovre would be to cause the
plaintiffto poetpone the trial till the neat court.
When the case was called, it happened that Al
lea was in a remste part'o.the court house,
and to his utter atoeishment, heusd his lawyer
gra ely deny the sigenture of the note. With
lcs and erce strides he iushed through the
"c' d, nad confronting the amaend limb of the

Swmra-IIraovaD Bnaun.-Prolessor Wil.
kinson, of Mount Airy Institute, who for the
past twelve years has devoted much time and
attention to the breeding and management of
swine, has furnished us some facts in his expe.
rience, which may be of interest to our read.
He commenced in 1638 by crossing the
Berkshire and Leicestershire breed, and has
selected his breeds from his entire stock with
the greatest care and attention. In his selee.
tiousheobserves, "I have always been guided
by the following characteristics, viz : First.
Those that were white or nearly so, great length
and rotundity of body small and short head, ears
Ilimbs and tail, little hair, thin clear skins, great.
eat tendency to fatten, and quiet, docile dispo
sitions; uad'I congratulate myself on my success
in which I feel that I stand unrivaled in this
The practice of Mr. W. is to keep them in
close pens constantly and feed them with plenty
of charcoal, salt all their food and give them
about a teaspoonfull of sulphur, once a week.
He washes them with soap suds once a month
and if any of them are chapped or inclined to
scurC he applies to the part affected skimmings
of boiled meat, which have the effect to keep
their skin smooth and flexible ; ithis we
consider very essential to thrift. He is also in
the daily practise of having them brushed with
a stiff whalebone brush, which he regards as of
essential service and believes that there can be
nothing done for them by the way of care that is
more proitable if particular care be taken to
brush the issues on the inside of the from
He observes: "We now keep them in sep.
arate pens and I am well convinced that their
additional thrift will pay the expense of the
necessary partitions in the main better than to
form the single ones at least three times a year
besides the great amount offeed saved that is
generally wasted when a number are kept to
gether by fighting each other from the trough.
I have also made another great saving of ex.
pense by the use of iron trough, which I was
induced to substitute for the plank ones, on ac.
count of their being so soon destroyed by the
gnawing of the hogs that I am satisfied that
they will prove vastly more economical than the

Sir John Hersehel, in an "Essay on the Pow.
or of th Telescope to penetrate into space," a
quality distinct from the magnifying power, in.
forms us that there are stars so infhuitely remote
as to be situated at the diohance of twelve mil.t
lions of millions of million of miles from our
earth ; so that light whihe travels with a veloc.t'
ity of twelve millions of miles in a minute, would'
require two ailliSa of. years for its transit from!

ass..-- is reported that a movement is on foot
in this city, by several large capitalists sek as
Mr. Grinnell, Mr. 5linuurn, and others, towe
a large tract of land some fifteen miles from the
eity of New York to erect a mew city upom.-
Two millions ofdollars to be the capital. The
company ae to bidM 5,000 brick heasns at
a, each udilding the lot of o by SAb fe.
These basnsm are to let iat Wl emk to mh.m

All the hosses to be uniform. Each kempst
to have the right to purchase his housnp by pp
ing 82 a week and keeping up the latresrt of
7 per cent. In this way he gets a tide to Lh
homestead in about 6 years. A negulation is
going on with the Hudson River Railrud thi
the occupants of these houses shall base the pri.
vilege to commute with the Railroad Company
for their passage to New York and lack again
at a price not to exceed 6 cents a day for going
and coming ; the distance each way will not be
far from 15 miles at 3 cents a head. In this way
they can reach the city in hall an hour but could
not in any way come down into the city in less
time than one hour. The price for railway
transit would be 820 per annum at any rate,
making the rent equal to 870. We hope that
the houses are intended to be self.contained.
The great diffieulty is in the distance, of 15
miles from the city. Working people must be
at their lobor an the mark at 7 A. M. Above
all other classes they should be able to live near
to the places of their labor.-Sciea* Amern.
A Casnasno Paosercr TO Barrtm InO
MasTras.-Thbe London Mining Journalof the
25th August last, contains the lollowing rem.
arks on the condition of the British Iron Trade;
"The iron trade may safely be declared in a
very promising condition and both the home and
the foreign trade has improved considerably.
It is understood that large orders for rails were
received from the Un aited States by the last stea.
mer from Boston, and hatl our prrpects in that
quarter are much more e . The strike
among the colliers in SoutfStatfordshire has al
ready caused considerable inconvenience ; and
it is hoped on account of the autum shipments
that these differences may be spiedily settled.
Prices remain much the some as last week
with a firm market. Woeh bars are held frm
at £5 5s to £5 10s."
The British Tariff which our Looofoeo rulers
enacted in 1846, is working out fs legitimate
fruits.-Under it, English iron workers are
becoming rich, while our own manufactures are
becoming bankrupt. Scores of furnaces have
been closed, and thousand of operatives throws
out of employment in PenusylvaaiF. As the
