An examination of Phrenology, by Thorn-
as Scwall, M. D. Professor of Anatomy and
Physiology. Washington City. B. Ho-
The work of which the above is the title,
is the production of Dr. Sewell, the learned
and able professor of anatomy and physiol-
ogy in the medical college of the District of
Columbia. It contains a cool, dispassionate
and masterly examination of tho subject of
ohrenoloffv unon scientific Drincinles illus-
iraieu oy iucis wnicn Dnng inc nature oi
the argument within reach of any intelligent
reader. As might be expected, from the a
cute and dispassionate character of the au
thor's mind, ho decides against tho dogmas
of phrenologists, and shows conclusively hat
their data aro unsupported, and that were
they true, a multitude of circumstances are
liable to occur, which prevent our ever arn
ving at a knowledge of their existence, in a.
ny particular case. Tho book is well worth
the perusal of every one interested in tlie sub
ject. JY. r. Spec.
Spirited Business. The following extra
ordinary confession of a new member is in
tho records of the lemperance fcociety:
'Several years since, I was in business at
Albany as a grocer. One evening, a man
arrived from the country with four barrels
of whiskey which he sold me at the custom
ary price, I think some less than thirty cents
per gallon, and wished to get a hogshead of
Jamaica rum to take back with him. I told
him that I had not the rum on hand, but
was expecting every hour to receive some
from New. York, and if he would wait till
tho next day, I would supply him, to which
he assented. I had the whiskey rolled into
the cellar, and transferred into an old rum
hogshead and manufactured, and on the
following day sold it to the same man I had
bought it of, at an advance of about 75 cts.
Biddle's Bank. The notes of the United
States Bank, (a Bank which "if it had con
sulted its own strength merely, would have
continued to pay specie," as Mr. Biddle
says, and which in the languago of the whig
press is "entitled to great credit" for refus
ing to pay its debts) are at two per cent, dis
count in New-York not two per cent, be-
low par, but two per cent, below the paper
of the iVcw- York Banks, which last are
elfftit or ten per cent, below nar. Une
would suppose from this that the knowing
ones entertained some doubts of its "ulti
mate solvency." It owes the Government
$8,000,000, not a dollar of which can be
cot. And this institution, if tho deposits
had not been removed, would have had
$30,0000,000 moro of tho people's money
in its vaults. Who can doubt that, bad as
is the present state of things, tho Govern
ment is vastly better ofT, and more secure,
than it would havo been if that bank had
continued to bo tho depositary of tho public
lunds. Augusta Age.

STORE IS TOO LONG."
Peter Brigham paid his last penny to the
toll-gatherer at Charles River, as he made
his entrance into Boston. He walked about
most of tho forenoon, and finally asked a
gentleman near one of the insurance offices
if ho wished "to hire?" Struck vith the ap
pcaranco of the lad, ho said "yes," and Pe
ter was provided with a comfortable home,
as a sort of "do all" in a gentlemah's family.
To make a loner story short. Petbr was no
common youth, and ho gradually rose in
the employ of Mr. Parker, till foryears and
years he was his head clerk, and. finally at
.i .- i i j .

house as a partner, at one third tle profits.
The well known house of "Parkej- Sc Co."
continued for a good number of years, and
one of the largest establishments or the day.

the whole concern in the hands a the jun

dor lva yiuvlcm iiiauugeiutjlH C." .?.-. Jiitg-
ham. tie was esteemed a merchant of the
utmost integrity, and maintained a most en
viablo reputation during his long mercantile
One day tho old gentleman said to Peter,
Jr., his eldest son, who had been brought up
in the store
"Do you think you could manage busi
ness alone? I leave you tho store a large
stock of goods, and perhaps the best set of
customers of any dealer in Boston : but re
member, Peter, paid my last penny to the
tolhman as I entered Boston."
The elder Brigham retired to Watertown
in a neat country abode. Peter went on
in the business. Tho spirit of improvement
got abroad, and Peter thought that he must
tear down the old store, and erect an ele
gant one with a granite front, and of great
depth, to accommodato his business. When
ho got comfortably into it, with elegant fix
tures to match, the elder looked in upon
"How do you liko the store, father?"
" Peter, the store is too long."
Peter, Jr. continued to extend his opera
tions, and finally became an importer of the
teas and coflee he sold at wholesale. He
was considered a desirable match for most
any young lady, nnd in the following year
espoused Julia Wentworth, an heiress of
thirty thousand. Ho purchased an elegant
mansion opposite the Mall, and of course
fitted it up in great splendor, becoming the
high circle in which his beautiful bride would
move. The father of Peter claimed the
privilege of presenting tho mirrors for the
dining room. They arrived from Liver
pool the day before tho nuptial dinner par
ty. The old gentleman had personally su
perintended their adjustment in the hall.
All the Wentworths and Bnghams were a
round the festive board, when speaking of
tho nuptial present, tho son, in the joyous
ness of tho occasion exclaimed,
" Father, I've not seen the mirrors you
irnvn u ...
"They aro suspended in this hall, my
All eyes were turncQupon them when
on a golden tablet crowning the reflector.
TETER, THE STORE IS TOO LONG."
Peter recollected tho remark of the old
gentleman, when asked his opinion of the
store, and, although ho had to laugh with
tho rest of the company, still ho felt there
was a meaning in it, and he never went in
to tho dining hall but his eyes would invol
untanly revert to the mirrors, with "Peter
tho store is too long." However Peter went
ahead in business. He had married a for
tune, besides the excellent business left him
by his father and Brigham, jr. was no
small man on Change, lie fell into a spec
ulating mania which sccmod to have pos
sessed the pcoplo of the age. His notes
were as good as bank notes, and his credit
was "A. No. 1." Every body was making
fortunes in stocks, and was there any earth
ly reason why he should not' Ho went in
to the fancy lino pretty largely. 1 he cot
ton speculation too was all the race, and ho
went into tho adventure as a matter of
course. And why not add a million or so
by purchasing lots in tho west ? Mr. Dol-
bier made two millions by the sale of his
lots whero tho city of Uncnt now rears its
aspiring head and Brigham jr. went $20,
000 into the lots of tho intended city o
Hamiltonia, tho most beautiful site, (situat
cd on tho confluence of six rivers. in all

was whispered on 'Change that he had made
more than nan a minion in stocks ana west

and at tho Lext election, Peter Brigham, jr,

But there must have been a race of Pc

and Peter found his on tho ebb,in the midst
of the money pressure. Stocks down cot

townships ditto. Asa last resort Peter was
obliged to visjt tho country seat of his falh
er at Watertown, to solicit funds to help
him through the pressure, or ho must fail
The prudent old merchant sat down and
took a cool survey of Peter s atlairs. II
then called tho servant to bring him some
bank checks, one of which ho filled out
"Pay to Peter Brigham jr. ono penny,the
amount possessed by his father when ho ar-
rived at Charles River Bridge and the best
inheritance a father can give his son to bo

Tho next day the failure, of tho houso of

'Change, for over a million of dollars.
And when the stock in tho new storo with

flair, wild and ' hcadlonff speculators had

EMM ETTAN D HIS INTENDED BRIDE.
Every ono must recollect the tragic story
of young Ernmett, the Irish Patriot, it
was too touchinr to be soon forgotten.
During the troubles in Ireland, he was tried,
condemned, and executed on a charge of
treason. His fate made a deep impression
on public sympathy. He was so young, so
intelligent, so generous, so brave a man..
lis conduct under the trial, too, was lofty
and intrepid. Tho noblo indignation with
which he repelled the charge of treason a
gainst his country ; the eloquent vindication
of name ; and his pathetic appeal to posteri
ty in tho hopeless hour of condemnation ; all
these entered deeply into every generous
bosom, and even his opponents lamented
the stern policy that dictated his execution.
But thero was one heart, whoso anguish
it would be impossible) to describe. In
happier days and fairer fortunes, ho had
won the affections of a beautiful and intcres.
ting girl, the daughter a late celebrated Irish
barrister, blie loved him with the disinter-
ptedbrvor pf a woman rs first and early
love, vvtiuu cverv wondivlnixim array tti
itself against him ; when blasted in fortune,
and disgrace and danger darkened around
lis name, she loved him more ardently for
his sufferings. Since his fate could awaken
sympathy even of his foes, what must have
been the agony of her whose soul was oc
cupied by his image ? Let those tell, who
havo had the portals of the tomb suddenly
closed between them and the being they
loved most on earth ; who have sat at its
threshold, as one shut out in a cold and
lonely worldvhence all that was tovely and
loving had departed.
To render her widowed situation more
desolate, sho had incurred her father's dis-
pleasure by her unfortunate attachment,
and was an exile from the parental roof.
But could the sympathy and kind offices of
friends have reached a spirit so shocked
and driven in by"1iorror, sho would have
experienced no want of consolation, for tho
Irish area people of a quick and generous
sensibilities. The most dclicato and cher
ishing attentions were paid her bv families
of wealth and distinction. She wasted into
societ)', and they tried all kinds of occupa-
tion and amusement to dissipate her grief,
and wean her from the tragical story of love
--but all was in vain! There are some
strokes of calamity that scathe and scorch
the soul, that penetrate to tho vital seat of
happiness, and blast it, never again to put
forth bud or blossom. She never objected
to frequent the haunt of pleasure; but she
was as much alone there as in the depths
of solitude, bhe walked about in a sad re
veric, apparently unconscious of tho world
around her. Sho carried with her an in-
ward woe, that mocked all the blandishments
of friendship, and "heeded not the song
ofthe charmer, charm he ever so wisely.
The person, says the eloquent author of
the Sketch Book, who told her story, had
seen her at a masquerade. After strolling
through tho splendid rooms and giddy
crowd, with n:i uir of utter ibtmctiun, vhm
sat herself down on the steps of an orchestra

States. What a scene docs this insatiate
spirit now present to the world! The city
merchants have extended their credit at
least sixty millions in Great Britain. They
have engrossed almost the whole banking
capital of the United States. They wielded
these vast facilities to monopolize the cot.
ton in advance for years, to command its
price; the wheat of the last crop to such an
extent as io make foreign importation the
only relief from extortion; and the public
lands, by large associated companies, were
also made the subject of mercantile specu-
Iation, and engrossed at government prices

tion which must cultivate them. In addi
tion to all this, tho merchants abandoned
their true avocations and have gambled e-
