President do 1 He is charged by a minister ol
the Gospel with having said thus and so. This
charge must be met and rebutted by strong
testimony ; for a Gospel minister's word is

upon what he says, until it is prpved to be
untrue. ?

The Artesian Well of Crenelle.
By M. Rey, Member of the Royal Society of Anti
quarian* of Prance, edition, Paiu, 1848.
Chapter IX.
Manipulation of the Rode-jnvhable durability
of the Crenelle Well.
Independently of the slowness which appar
tains to I lie continuous execution-of wells bored
to a great depth, the repairing ol unexpected
accidents, and the inevitable encountering of
certain hard strata, there are others incident 10
the process itself. We have seen thai the bor

long, that it can be indefin.iely^elongaied by
the admission of similar rods, which are enher
screwed or riveted at their adjoining extreme*
When the operation of boring is commenced,
the rod to which the augur, pick or chisel is
adapted is then twenty five long, wjihout the
borer. It hangs in the orifice of the well Iroru
a crane, which elevates or depresses it; at us
superior extremely are attached horizontal an_
glea for rotation, and the whole w suspended
bv a rope, through the medium of a ring on
which the rod bears, and arranged in such a
manner that rotation can be impressed upon
ibe rod by means of the handles, and the rope
not participate in the act ol rotation.
When the recipient of the auger is filled with
detached earth, the whole apparatus is drawn
up quickly by the crane, and the contents emp
tied. When, after repeating this operation sev
eral times the rod becomes too short, on account
of the increased depth of the well, it becomes
necessary to increase its length by screwing on
or riveting another rod of twenty live feet, so
that after this every time that the apparatus is
to be drawn up and emp'ied, fifty feet of rod
ere to be elevated, aud a joint to I* unscrewed
or unriveted, and in its descent the same joint
is to be again screwed or riveted, it will be rea
dily understood that the decent and elevation ol
the two tods have consumed more time than
the single one would-have done; and so on as
the well is deepened, a third, a fourth, and a
fifth rod is added, and it is always m stopping
to screw and unscrew, one by one, the severttl
bars that compose the whole rod, that the crane
is successfully in actiou aud at rest. L his tua
t.auvring is regulated by the boring and clean
sine, by the tubing and re-adjusting ; hence it
is incessant. Practised in a well one hundred
and seventy feet deep, such as that at Grenelle,
and with all the difficulties increasing as the
apparatus is elongated, is it to be wondered at
that time is consumed in a deep excavation !
M. de Humboldt speaks of a well bored in
Pennsylvania alieady two thousand feet deep,
and it is contemplated to sink it to six thousand
and five hundred. It will finish, then, by hav
ing two hundred and fifty rods to screw and
unscrew an incalculable number of times. Let
only the fourth of the accidents which occurred
at Grenelle happen at this, how much time
will be required to remedy the difficulties and
finish the work?
It must be observed, that at Grenelle, when
M. Mulot used a very high crane, he was en
abled to woik at great depths, by dividing his
rods into lengths of two bars, say fifty feet.?
Some engineers call a manipulation^ the des
cent, rotation, and ascent of the chain of rods.
Each of these manipulations at Grenelle re
quired from six to seven houis, and frequently
brought up an empty auger. If the Pennsyl
vania well is finished, each manipulation will
require several days. The deeper the well, the
stouter should be the rods. When the well at
Grenelle was finished, the sum total of the
weight of rods was sixty eight thousand and
two hundred pounds. What will it be in Penn
The greatest quantity.of water ever obtained
by boring, and from the greatesy depth, is thm
furnished by the Grenelle well, which, at tin
summit of a jet of 117 fcrt, moves with a ve
locity of sijtty inches in the minqie. This trn
tnetise quantitydiacharged,creates in the minds
of some the apprehension that in the course o
time it will be enfeebled. But we have a guar
antee to the contrary in the well of jMbul
which is supplied by the same sheet of water
and although bored many years ago, yieMi
always the tame quantity of water. VV e alsc
have ihe assurance of ihe well? of Artoi.s whini
are much older. M. Lamartine cites the three
wells bored by Solomon in ihe plain of Tyre,
which now discharge the same quantity thai
they did when first consiructed, and are still
the principal sources of t|ie <iupply of water tc
this ancient and celebrated city. W e can ctM
others, in other places,still more ancient, which
furnish undiminished quantities. The rain be
ing, as we huye seep, the only sources or Ar
tesian jets, we have the certitude that they wil
never <-<>ase their action so long as it shall rain
and so long as rain continues to form rivers,
which pass over the porous, sandy, and calca
reous soils which constitute the resevoirs ol
Artesian wella.

?? Thf. Poor makr no new Frirnds!"?
The following is but the history of many a

" Dri'movane. (Parish of Morah,)

Nonsuiting a Crbditok?There was a cer
tain lawyer on the Cape a long time ago, ihe
only one in those "diggius" then, and for
aught I know, at present. He was a man
well to do in the world, and what was some
what surprising in a limb of the law, averse
to encouraging litigation. One day a client
caine to him in a violent rage?" Look a-here,
'squire," said lie, ?' thai 'ere blasted shoemaker
down to Pigeon Cove, has gone and sued me
for the money for a pair of boots I owed him."
" Did the boots suit you?" "Oh, yes! I'vm
got 'em on : fust rate boots." " Fair price ?"
" Oh ! yes." " Then yon owe him the money
honestly." " 'Course." " Well, why dou't
you pay him?" " Why, 'cause the blasted
snob went and sued me, and I want to keep |
him out of the money, K I Win." " It will cqst
you something." " 1 don't keer a cuss for that:
how much money do vou want to begin with?"
"Oh! ten dollars will do." "Is that all? Well,
here's an X, so go aheadand the client went
out very well satisfied with the beginning.
Our lawyer next called on the shoemaker,
and asked hitn what he meant by commencing
legal proceedings against M ? "Why,"!
said he, " I kept on sendin' to him for money
till I got tired. I know'd he was able to pay,
and 1 was 'ternuned to make him : that's the '
long and short of it.'' " Well," said the law
yer, " he's always been a good customer 10
you, and 1 think you acted loo hastily. There's
a trifle to pay on account of your proceeding ;
but 1 think you'd better lake this five dollars,'
and call it all square." " Certain, 'squire, if
you say so, and darned glad to get itwas
the answer. In a few days his client caiur
along, and asked him how he got on with his
case. " Rapidly J" cried the lawyer: " we've
non suited him! he'll never trouble you." " Je
rusalem! that's great!" cried the client: "I'd
rather a gin fifty dollars than have had him got
the money for them boots."?Spirit of TKinea.

rpHIS ha-' been the the secret principle of too ma
1 ny of the wholesale dealers in Teas up to this
time, and they have practised Ihe most ahameful im
position on the Country Merchant without any fear
of detection. But a new era in the Ten Trade has
come and tbe Peltin Tea Company claims the honor
of its introduction. They were tbe first to raise the
banner of Reform, on which it haa inscribed the sim
ple words:
A complete revolution haa been the consequence.
Let consumers of Tea everywhere look at what we
have done.
1st. We were the first to send them Teas that
ured to be called too good for them before.
2d. We knve driven out the market a vast amount
of trash, and introduced a better elasa of Teaa than
has ever yet been sold. Importers of Tea often come
to us to get lor their own ubc, and for their friends,
fine qualities they ran find nowhere else.
3d. We hsve reduced prices more than 25 per
cent., Iioth in Black and Green T. as. The whole
sale grocers say we are mining the trade and call
us humbugs. This we have done already, and now
see what we are ready to do.,
1st. We will sell Teas by the single chest, half
chest or 14 pound box, at the same prices that whole
sale grocers pay to the importers when they buy by
the hundred pachages,
2d. Thp wholesale g'ocets allow only 13 or at
most 14 pounds tare to the half chest. This is a
cheat. We allow, in most instances, 19 and 16 lbs
tare on the same.
3d We hereby undertake to sell every kind of
Tes, from from nix to tiveh<r cents per pound ehia
per than the wholesale gmcera do.
How csn we do this t aiVa the country merchant
This is our answer. We are ronteni wilh seven
per cent profit instead of 25 and 50 per i ent., a In
wholesale gtocer.
We deserve the thanks of the country merchanta
for saving them hereafter from being cheated Let
hem come to iho Warehouse of ihe Pekin Tea Com
pany, and compare samples of Tea they get else
where; and if they buy bad Teas then at high prices
(I is their own fault.
An Englieh importer lately boasted to us that he
could make more money by aending bad Tesa to the
New Yotk market, than on g??od Teaa. W? are
resolved to overthrow t: is fraud ; and now call upon
agents in every town in the United S'ates to come
forward and bity Teas imported by the Pekin Tfs
Company; and we pledge ourselves, that if in six
months they do not sell more Tea than the oldest
and lagest dealers in the town, we will give them
our Tea without charge. This is plain Engliah and
cannot be misunderstood. We appeal for testimony to
the immense success of our Agents in any part of
the United states.
fLJfAgents wanted in every town in the United
States for the sale ot these Teas, by which they can
make money, and confer a benefit upon the Public
by su| pi) ing the pure article.
75 St 77 FmIUm street, JVW Fork.
? ? The Teas mentioned in this Catalogue, are
done up in quarter pound, half pound and one pound
packages?the first or inside wrapper is lea.I, the
second wrapper is water proof paper, and the third
or outside wrapper is of C.iinene rice paper. The
Company sell none but good teas, dons up in thi?
superior manner, a I of them grown in the most lux
urious d strics in China. Country dealers may
select as small a quantity or each kind aa they like,
and have them packed in one chest. These teas also
come in five pound Chinese packages, called quat
toons, a very convenient fanciful and portable shape.

herb has been compelled to eeehew the drinking of
Tea in consequence ef its injurious effects, until at

of the imported varietiee of Teas in our .market, n
kind which had not audi an effect. In thie, bowev.

say they never before drank kftch tea. But all testae
