The Compound Heater has proved highly u-eful in heating small
rooms, where tlieie are no fire places, flues, ?.r other fixtnre*, for

made in five minutes, merely by lighting the lamp, aad it may he

and it ?.ay be used with perfect safety.
The following result of ao experiment made with the smallest
Healer will show Lhe degree of hea it is susceplib'eof produ<~ia:. It
was charged with three cents worth of ruin (half a pint) and put in operation
in a r?om in dimensions 15 feet by 8, where the mercury in a
ihertnom'ter stood at M deg. above 6. The heat emitted from this
apparatus is produced by a column of tar fied air constantly pissing
off from it, anil to test the i utensity of this current of air.it was the reSuest
of the spectators that the thermometer should be placed first
feet directly above tha stove, and then in the most dista> t part or
the rooui. Atits position over tiie Hester the mercurr ruse 10 deg.

The Sikur V?, A Romance ik Real I.ife.?The
resolution which it was supposed iiad been formed by
Morey, the accomplice of Fieschi, of starving himself
to death, is not the first example of the kind on record.
The same mode of suicide has on several former occasions
been successfully adopted by accused and condemned
persons. It has been remarked that the horrible
tortures <>f hunger do not produce delirium, ?r even
i annihilation of the intellectual faculties, except when
violently imposed by power superior to that ol the victim.
1'he suffering, on the contrary, when incurred for
the purpose of suicide, and eudured wir'u energetic but
fatal determination, seem? to excite and invigorate the
moral faculties, and to increase the acnteness of the
senses. In spite of the exhaustion, and prostration
of the physical organization, the immaterial portioa of
the system acquires renewed strength, and attaina an
( Bconsiderable developement of power.
A very curious example of suicide by means of starI

I lauuu, wcunca some years ag? in Corsica. During
the election*, the Sieur V rushed into the electoral
I college armed with a dagger, which he plunged into
the breast of & man wko had d'me him some injury.
The man fell dead at his feet. This assassination was
| committed in the full light of day, and in the presence
1 of an assembled multitude. Never was an act of Italian
j rendetUi more signally executed.
V was tried, found guilty, aud condemned to
death. Mis high spirit and resolute character were well
known; and it was suspected that he would seek, by
a voluntary death, to evade the disgrace of perishing
on the scaffold. He was therefore vigilantly watc.h?d ;
, and every precaution was taken to deprive him of the
means of putting an end to his existence.
He resolved to starve himself to death during the interval
which elapsed between the senteuce of the Court
of Assizes and the reply which the Court of Cassation
j would make to the appeal he had addressed to it.
He had succeeded in concealing from the observation
of his jailers a portion of the food with which they supplied
him, so as to make it believed that he regularly
took his meats. After three days abstinence, the pangs
of hunger became insupportabfe.
It then suddenly occurred ?o him that he might the
more speedily accomplish the object he had in view.
by eating with avidity. He thought that the state of
exhausttiou to. which he was reduced would unfit him
to bear the sudden oiccss, and that it would inevitably
t occasion the death he no desired. He acroro|

things. The consequent was. that he was adzed with
a violent fit of indigestion from which, contrary to his
expectation, the prison doctor sj?eedilv enred him.
tie then resumed his fatal design. He suffpre/l ?"?>
1 what he had undergone before. The torture was al|
most beyond his strength. His thirst, too, was intoiera|
hie. It overcame his resolution. He extended hia
hand towards (he jug of water, which hod been placed
in his cell. He drank with aviditv, and to use his own
expression, he teat restored to life.
To avoid yielding aggih to a similar temptation, he
daily took the precaution of overturning the jug of
water which was brought to him. Lest he should be
induced to raise it to his lips, he threw it down with hia
foot, not venturing to touch it with hi*hand.
In this manner he passed eighteen days.
Every day, at different intervals, he noted down in
his album a minute account of his sensations. He
counted the beatings of his pulse, and marked thair
umber from hour to hour, measuring with the moat
scrupulous attention tho gradual wasting of his strength.
In several parts of his melancholy memento, he declares
that he felt it harder to (tear the agonies of thirst than thow '
^of hunger. He confessed that Jo* was frequently on the
point of yielding to the desirQ of drinking. .He neverj
theless resistedl
He was surprised to find liis'sight become more and

, like the developeniem of i ne?v sense. The Bearer lie
approached his lqtter moment*, the more his power of
| vision seemed to increase. On this subject lie thus
i expresses himself:?"Itappears as though 1 could see
I through the thickest wall."
His sense of feeling likewise attained the mo6t ex;
quisite sensibility. His hearing uml Mnelling improved
' in a similar degree. His ulbmu contains mauy curious

The Sieur ?? had <!evote<l some attention to anatomy
awl physiology; aoci he nitributes the- increased
ucnteries? of hi? sensp.? to the way in wliich the intestinal
irritation acted on the pcrvous s_\ stem.
His ideas, he says, were numerous and clear, and
were very different from any thing h'e had experienced
in morver.ts nf excitement or intexiration. They were
all directed te logical investigation, whether he applied
tbem to an .analysis of material objects ?r to philosophic
contemplation. .He also felt himself inspired with a
singular aptitude for mathematical calculations, a study
for which he had previously felt verv little inclination.
l_ r Ifoir
to ro a Courting.?A correspondent of the
United States Gazette, writing from the Old Colony, in
mentioning the maternity of the Quincy Adam*es, including
two of the Presidents of the Union, saya u Old
John Adams, yon remember, i<" the same of whom the
tradition is current, that he got his wife, Miss Mulline,
by undertaking to act its messenger ?r mediator, for his
friend, the gallant Captain Standish, (rather more
gtf/lant than cnl/ant, by the w hy, it would seem.) John
Was handsome and genteel, and delivered his messige '
in a style which so fascinated the fair damsel, .Miss
Priscilla, that, fixing her eyes on his charminsr face, she
could not restrain, when be finished, the interesting qaery,
" Prithee, John, why not speak for yourself?" which, of
course, settled the matter for all posterity, President
and all. How do ycu think he could do otherwise*
Dr. Thatcher tells me enough else, but not how the
lucky ro?ue made his peace with the Captain. John
was a gentleman, and he took hi? bride home from Cape
Cod, you know,on the back of n hull, covered with nice
broadcloth, leading the animal the while bv a rope in
the nose rine. The first notice of horses on record, it
seems, i- in 1644. The Colony Court presented one to
Kinj Philip in '65, as a very great affair."
