l. We mty state that there are what are
termed excito-motary nerres, two originating in
the spinal marrow,' and two in the brain; and
that sensation, pain end motion hare hitherto
Wen referred to impressions transmitted to and
reflected from the first, or transmitted by the
last, the assumed seat of volition, and, in short,
the mind. According to this phisiology, when
yeu cut jreur finger, a message has to bo sent to
, ,,, the brain or spine, end then a permission return-
y . fed down the nerve, authorizing sensation or
muscular motion. It is not the finger lliut u
cut, as the "vulgar" contend, but, so to speak,
the brain of the spinal marrow. Yet the "vul
"Vf r'ghf ,n'1 l requires a philosopher to
prove them so. This Dr. Dowler did yesterday,
as he has done before, and his opinions are
v s working a physiological revolution. Thus, he
' divided the spinal marrow in three places at
the base of the neck, in the middle, and at
- the) bsse 'of the back; nay, he divided the
-'; nerves emerging from the spine and still, on
irritating the nerve between the section and the
extremity, he demonstrated that the animal pos
sessed a diffused sensibility, a capacity to recog
nize pain, and even an intelligent power to act
gainst, or attempt to escape the cause of the
pain. Cutting off the head of the animal, job
bint: out the spinal marrow, dividinz the nerves
coming from them, and irritating them along
their distal portions, they etill retained this in
dependent sensibility, and the mutilated limbs
:- of the headless aaimal would make intelligent
motions for getting rid of the local torture.
These are curioxs and important discoveries.
' . Dr.' Cartwright contends, against long odds,
k is true, that in the lungs, not the heart, re
sides the motive power of the circulation; that
literally, as Moses asserted, the blood is the life
of the flesh, and the air the life of the blood.
" lie affirms that after death, when the pulse has
tapped, the heart is still, and the body is insen
sible to pain, by producing artificial respiration,
by inflating the lungs, the blood can be started
new, its life revived, and the body resurrected
absolutely from the acid extractions of death,
Both of his alligr.iors had their windpipes tied,
- and one of them had his chest opened, with its
heart, lungs and stomach, etc, exposed. In the
course of two hours both animals were dead,
pulseless, and quiet over flames of fire. Then
a bellows-nozzle being inserted into the trachea,
innation was begun, and continued some min
utos. We saw the motionless heart throb, the
blood beginning to flow from the lungs to that
. organ the eyes of the alligator opened, and the
hapless victim lived again I New Orleans

Up to 6 o'clock last evening the publio were
kept in a state 01 excitement Dy aespaicnes re
eived at intervals from the Falls, bringing in
formation of poor Avery, each report fluctua
ting between hope and fear ; now expressing
eonfidence in his eventual safety, and now
almost despairing of his rescue. A large num
ber of persons left this city for the scene of
xcitemcnt by the trains, anu swelled tne tnous
tad a already gathered around the spot.
We have been furnished with an account ef
the proceedings since one o'clock yesterday, by
an eye witness. ,
Our informant tells us that the man was in
rt f the ranids where the rocks rise nearlv
to the surface of the water. A log of wood,
apparently wedged tightly between the rocks,
sued crossed by another, still hitrher out of the
Water, was his resting place. Here he remained,
half clinging to and half perching upon the log,
from winch he would occasionally slip (low
and walk a little en the rocks, which was enly
short uiatance umicr water, a lew lect in
advance evao a small fall of About four or five
feet, and here on each aide of him the waters
rushed wildly on at a spaed of about 40 tails
n hour. Since our report yesterday wae wade
Up, about 2 l-i o clock in the alter noon, a raft
Was constructed formed ef crossed timbers,
strongly fastened in a eqtiere form, a hogshead
beine placed in the centre). The raft was tretl
secured with ff on Mcn "'ed
down to the roefcs upon wnicn Avery wae ens
.tained. As it approaches the spot where he
stood, Mie rope got fast in the rocks, and the
raft became immovable. . Avery thai, eppeartd
to muster strength and courage, and descending
from the log, walked over the rocks to the place
where the rope hl caught and labored long and
hard to disengage it from the rocks. After
some time ho enoeeeded, and then with renewed
tnerey, inarired by the hope of rescue, he
nulled manfully at the rope until he succeeded
In bringing the raft from the current towards
bis fesrfut restipg place. n
S Avery now rot on the raft, inn ins; himself
fust thereto by "Deans of ropes which had been
placsd there for that purpose, and those on the
Und Aomtnenced drawing it towards the shore.
It W1 spprenched within iry fed of cat of
thesini ll itlarnu, towards which us ceurte was
4 routed, when suddenly it become stationary in
the muUt f the rapi'ls, the ropes having again
, ci?lit KJV rocks. All endeavors lo move it
ftef fouHJo be in vain, aiid much fear was en
terUiued tHJha strain upen the ropes might
, irnak iht-iii, and occasion the poor fellow's los.
Various 'i,'.'geti'ii wre imw volunteered, and
several stliiupls v-vie mu le (u rc.-.ch him. One
man went out in a beat as far as he dared to
venture, and asked him if ho would fasten a rope
around his body and trust to being drawl in by
that. The poor fellow, however, shook his
head despondingly, as though he felt that he had
not strength enough remaining to make himself
secure to a rope. At lenc'h a boat wss cot
ready a life-boat, which liad arrived frotl
Iluffilo and was launched. Seeing the prepa
rations, Avery unloosed his fastenings, with the
intention of being ready to spring into the boat,
llorae on by the rushincr waters, and timid the
breathless suspense of the-spectators, the boat
approached thcraft. A tlatr ill fan through the
crowd; the boat lived in the angry wavt ; it
struck tliO raft ; a shout of joy rang forth from
the shores, far it was believed that he ovat
tared when tuddctily the hope that fiad I ten
raised was again Qtnroyet:. moments con
fueioa folluwed the eelheion, and in the neat the
victim wae seen in the midst of the waters,
separated from kit frail support and struggling
for life. For a minutt er two tha peer fellow,
striking out boldly, twem strongly towards the
island, and tne try tclieed trom enert to taero
that ha would yet bo aaved. But toon the fact
became ccrtaia that he receded from the short ;
his strength wss evidently failing. Gradually
he waa borne back into the fiercest pert of the
current ; slowly at first, then snore rapidly.
Swiftly tnd more ewiftly ha approached the
brink of the ratal precipice. 1 ha wafert Had
him at last, their undisputed victim, and madly
they whirled him on to death, as though enraged
at his persevering eflorts to escape their rury.
A sickening feeling came over the spectators
when, just on the brink of the precipice, the
doomed msn sprang up irom the waters clear
from their surface raising himself upright as
a statue, with his arms flung wildly .aloft, and
with a piercing shriek that rang loudly above
the mocking roar ef the cataract, fell back again
into the foaming waves, and was hurled over
the brow of the precipice.
We have no heart for comment upon the mel
ancholy and awtul event. Hie late ot poor
Avery will add another to the many foarful lo
cal incidents already related by the guides at
the Falls, and for years his critical situation,
his hard struggles, his feariul death Kill bo the:
themo of many a harrowing tale.

I am about to traubla you with a few
lines for publication is your papea. I hava
been far n long lime, considering our rail.
road prospects; sometimes thay have been
bl ight, at others dark and gloomy; I now ask
what docs all this mean? There must bo
something wron". Wa as a people hava
been promised that, il wa would do and
so, the road would ba built, and we, true p
ourselves, rise in the majesty of our power,
and make the hills and valleys ring with a
railroad speeches, and wa could almost lm
ine that we heard the wlmle of the Lo
comotive; in short, we did ail they asked us
to do, and, ala! where now is our prospect
of a road? Gone as it were climtnerina
through the things talked ol! And, again,
1 would like to know who is to blame for
all this; surely not the people ol Brown,
for they have done all that was asked them
to do. Well then who is to blame; It may
have been tlmt the credit ot the company
was not goon in the .hast, lor the money
and if thai is the case there is no one to blame
except the mons) holders in the Mast, and
it wa aver want to build a rail road wa must
try to redeem ourcredit.
out I fear there is something wrong, f they
made no arraneement for the menev. If not.
..... . . . .
hy did they say that they had; and if they fail
ed, why did they not say so, and let the people
ot Airown know they had tailed, iiut latterly, 1
suppose they have made arrangements to build
the road tt Galesburg, conditioned that the coun
ties through which the road will pass, subscribe
two hundred thousand dollars. I hope that these
counties will not fare as we have. It has been
all cry from Quincy, and but little wool, and I
asa now of the opinion that Quincy does not
want the road through to Meredosia, but would
like to defeat the road to Hannibal. I will say,
just here, that, if the company does not put it
all under contract, in good faith, before the
meeting of the next legislature, Hannibal will
get the road, and that the people of Drown, as
one man, will go for it.

gradually in-creasing the manufacture and sale of them; and although, owing to their being light and
smooth, and something new, some little dimcultv attended the sale and use at first, yet by always raking
stoves and castings of the best quality of Scotch Pig and Missouri Mountain Iron, they have proved t.
withstand fire better than any other Casting made in the Western country. The Furnace Castings and Hot.

The Charter Oak stove posssesse ndvantitgef
over common Stoves, in thickness of the Plate, aud improvement in the Draft, his
given up by all stove doalers mid manufacturers, to be the bust 1'atlern for a dejciJ
ing line, ot any stovu now made Last or West.
This Stove was patented September, 1S.V2, anl wherever they have been used hars
given general satisfaction. This stove weighs some 10 pounds more to the number
than any other stove ever brought to this citv. The plates in them are from 1 to 1 of
an inch in thickness. o. 1 weighs over ii.'il) pounds. We warrant them all oiiainjl
fires. These Stoves have a Patent Hot Air Flue, which carries the heat that ii
generated under the fire-plate down the front part of the Stove between two ihisk
plates to the ilralt at the bottom ol the Stove, thereby aduini; creat heat to baka with
on tho bottom, and remedying that which has always been a fault with stoves ef
descending flue, heretofore. The Charter Oak has one flue and cne plate mora tku
any Air Tight loe yet invented. They will cook with one-half the fual whith esa
of tha ordinary stovea will, and will last for tweuty-five years.
"Prize Prciniiim" Cook Stove. '
This superior article has only been ill use since January. IKiX . and sine, that Diet- have riven aurk .re
versal satisfaction that they are now the principal stove sold up the Illinois, Missouri and Mississippi
livers. The late improvement made by Filley, by putting a division in the draft below, divides the heat si it
un.ir. ,,ie u.en.aim prevents ii noiu all coiiceiilratii'.g on the ceatre ol the lue-platc, as it dosslBOis
er stoves of similar form. '
Another great improvement .in the Premium Stove is the Patent Damper; which is so constructed as to ia
sure it against breakage by liiej and if nerestary, by turning the damper up a little, you can throw the fceal
under the oven without burning what is baking, as some do.
I have just made auclher gieat improvement in Filley's Patent Prize Premium stove, by adding te H
arge, heavy Crate, lor the wood to rest on, which not only aids the draft, by keeping it alwuys clear, but si
keeps the wood liom breaking, and burning out the bottom of the stove.
Tins (Jrale is made so as lo prevent the wod from f.illing against the doors, and burning them through
is the case with stoves that have no grates; and as we have the only Premium Cook Stoves that ban Orals
in them, e hesitate not in saying I hat we cun sell a cl caper and better stove than can be had elsewbers
me esiin country, ivrums wishing to buy sloves would do well to call before purchasing.
the ilillerence between Filley's Patent Premium aid other stoves of the same form in use, are,
the lust place, the improvements made in the Urafl Dan. per; and secondly, a contraction of the smoke dui
by which the heat is more contiued ag.iinst llie (Ken, h. atiiig it more regular and quicker, and always ia- ,
sines the stove to diaw well, in any situation. Thirdly, tha boilers aie nearer ilia lire than in most stow'S,
ami having the Hue coiilrastcd to the width o, the bviler in front, it bungs all the heal in use. Fourla
l the ovens are much linger than thy e of H ost ,-ioves of the saaie kind in use, aud particularly lW
I inciniiati stoves, ss Hie ovens are very narrow and less useful. In all sizes of the Prize Pieininrr. CJ,
Stove the openings in lioul and back are the same hiz so thel you have two oval openings, the Wash Bo
er hj ing either, or you can make four round hob s of a ut and any of the trimmings will tit eithsr bH.
All ol llie above stoves may be piocoied at the
