The Great Wellington.
The great Wellington, "the Iron
Duke," -was born May 1, 1769, at
Castle, Ireland ; his father was Garrett,
first Earl of Mornington, and his
brother -was the Marquis Wellesley. He
completed his military education in the
military college of Angers, France ; entered
the army in 1787 as ah ensign,
and 1793 was a Lieutenant Colonel. In
a brief service in the Netherlands he distinguished
himself in several repulses of
the French, and in 1796 went to India,
where he rose rapidly, and made his first
grand success at Assay e, with 4,500 men
defeating the combined Mahratta forces,
from 40,000 to 60,000 strong; followed
by the victories of Argaum and the great
fort of Gawulghur ; for these services he
was made & O. B., and received the
thanks of Parliament and the King. In
1805 he returned to Great Britain, obtained
a seat in the House of Commons,
and in April, 1807, was appointed Chief
Secretary of Ireland. In the year
he went to Spain in command ot
an expedition to dnvo out from that
peninsula the French forces, and, after
aeveral affairs, defeated Juuot in the
battle of Vimicira, and was thanked by
the Commons. He was subsequently
made Marshal General of the Portu
guese army; various combats ensued,
and then the victory of Talavera, where
a desperate struggle took place; he was
again thanked by Parliament, and was
created a peer and given a pension of
2,000. His next feat was to repulse
the French attacks, September, 27, 1810,
at Busaco, and the year after he received
the thanks of Parliament for liberating
Portugal. Spain had next to bo cleared
of its invaders, and this duty also fell to
him. For his brilliant services at the
storming of the fortress of Cindad Rod-
rigo, January 19, 1812, lie was created a
grandee of Spain, again thanked by Parliament,
2,000 of a further pension
given him, aud he was advanced to the
peerage with the title of Earl of Wellington.
In April lie took Badajoz and
on July 22 took Salamanca, one of his
greatest military triumphs ; for these he
received the Order of the Golden Fleece,
and was made Generalissimo of the
Spanish armies, was once more advanced
in the British peerage by the title of
Marquis of Wellington. Parliament
thanked him again, and 100,000 were
laid out in the purchase of lands to be
settled on him and his heirs. Me met
his enemies, the French, at Victoria,
under Junot, and added another victory
to his list, and was made a field marshal
of Great Britain, and succeeded in
driving the French out of the peninsula
by the time Napoleon had been persuaded
to sign his abdication. The great soldier
of the British forces was created Marquis
of Douro and Duke of Wellington
in the British peerage, and received an
additional grant of 100,000 and took
his seat in the House of Lords. When
Napoleon escaped from Elba, Welling
ton was placed in command of the
forces on the Continent, and the two
great antagonists met at Waterloo, with
the result know to all the world. Wellington
had command of the army of occupation,
ot the request of the allied
sovereigns, from 1815 to 1818, during
which time there were two attempts,
made upon his life. The Kiug of the
Netherlands created him Prince of
Waterlpo, parliament voted, ,him 200,-000
more, and after various services he
succeeded the DuEobf York as Com-,
of the army, ivhioh he
resigned shortly after, on Mr. Canning,
being called to form an administratioji.

The Daily Swelling of Plants.
With delicate means of measurement
ETerr Kraus has recently proved the existence
of a phenomenon in all plant
organs, which is connected with their
variable water content, and consists in a
periodical swelling and contraction in
twenty-four hours. Leaves, etc., decrease
in thickness from the early morning
till the afternoon, when they begin
to swell again, attaining a greater size
Ly night than by day (this is well seen
in agave, aloe, and the like); similarly
with buds, flowers, green cones, fruits,
etc. , and with stems and branches. Herr
Kaiser has before proved such a period
in the trunks of trees, and Herr Kraus
shows that both wood and bark share in
it, independently or unitedly. The
various experiments of Herr Kraus removal
of foliage, watering, shutting out
light, etc. lead to an explanation of the
phenomena by the varying reciprocal
action of those factors which bring water
into the plant and those which carry
it away. By night only the water-absorbing
activity of the parts below ground
operates, by day the water-consuming
activity of the parts above ground besides.
The water consuming activity
depends mainly on the foliage
and on light "(removal of leaves
or of light stops contraction), and
consists essentially in transpiration.
Herr Kraus states that when a plant is
watered these things occur : In a short
time, less than an hour, the stem begins
to swell ; both wood and bark take part
in this, the wood always first. The
swelling progresses at a pretty quick
rate, upward of several meters per
second. After some time, perhaps an
hour, contraction gradually recurs. The
contraction began at the upper part of
an acacia after ten minutes, whereas the
swelliug at the lower part continued fifty
minutes. This shows that the contraction
is duo to the activity of the foliage,
aud gradually extended downward.
Iron buildings often burn, yet wooden
buildiugs may be made fire-proof, and
frequently are so built. This statemeut
is wortli careful thought by all builders.
It shows that an incombustible material
is not needed for a fire-proof building.
A slow burning building is always better
than the so-called iron buildings. One
of the means by which wood may be
made fire-proof or slow-burning, is the
exclusion of the air from it, as by sheathing
with tin or covering with mortar.
For security, we should have no flues or
empty connecting spaces in the walls, to
carry flames where it can not be reached
by water, nor its exact position known.
Floors are fire-proof where the timbers
are incased in mortar and the air spaces
closed, or where the floor is solid. A
layer of mortar between double floor
boards makes a floor nearly fire-proof
from below, and in a dwelling quite so
from above. Is it not possible to build
without making every wall a labyrinth
of flues lined with tinder, aud giving the
utmost protection and draft to a fire that
may once start in them? The danger of
double wooden walls is reduced one-half"
when the air spaces are cut off from alt
connection with each other.
In a year the number of respirations
is, in most persons, over 9,000,000 ; and
125,000 cubic feet of air earned through
the lung?, purifies 5.010 tons of blood.
