BOTANIC GARDEN. 1
The garden of plants has lately been
Enriched' by many ftocks of the violet',*'

Af Otaheite. The produce of the'e two
fpecies of cane is nrucfv more confide r'ab!e, '
than that commonly cultivated in the 5
Antilles. The fnccefs which has attend*'

DISCOVERY ON LIGHT and HEAT.
After a long Vacation, the Royal Socie
ty of London has again met. At this
meeting they were principally engaged with
a memoir of Hk as hull, upon theproperties
oi' heat and light. This memoir con
twin;; an account of 170 experiments, the
refults of which are,
lft. That the red rays are thofe which
give the moft heat, but leaf! fight.
fid. That the focus of heat is near half
an inch from that of light.
3d. That the motion of light is eflen
tia'ly different from the motion uf heat ;
from whence are drawn the ftrongeft rea
forifi to believe, that light and heat are
different fluids.
MAKING PAPER-.
The arc of making Paper of other ma
srials than old rags, is neither a new dif
f&very, nor one made by the Englifh :
it exiih In a volume of the works of M.
De Vcllette, which was printed in 1786
ipon paper made of the bark of the Linden
tree, and affixed to this volume, are 20
fpeennens of paper made from the marlh
mallow, from nettles, reeds, dogs-grafs,
moft, the fpindle-tree, See.-—All thefe ex- 1
pertments were made at the manufacture
of Buges, by Leorier. None of thelt
papers are as white as that made of rags ;
but for wrapping or hanging paper, anfwer
♦'xtreinely well.
The Ele&or of Bavaria has juft publifhed

INSTITUTION tor BLIND,
DEAF AND DUMB.
Among the many benevolent Inftitu-
Vioiis in Paris, for the relief of human mif
try, that for the iuftru&ion of the deaf
and dumb, and for the blind, affords a
plealing and interefting objedl of contem
plation. *
The Abee L'Epee was peculiarly dif
tinguiflied for his great, generous and de
voted fervices, rendered to thofe beings
who had been deprived of the organs of
fpeech and hearing. His fuccefTsr, Sicardj
ijone of the moft benevolent of men, and
equally diftinguilhed by his fuccefsful fer
vices*
The following account of an interview
of his pupils and of the members of the
Hofpital for the blind, with the Firft Con
ful, extradled from a late Paris paper,
will, we are convinced, prove interefting
to our readers.
"When they were introduced—citizen La
falle tlius fpoke in the name of the
Dirc&ors of thofe Inftitutiotis.
u The unfortunate beings who are now
before you, deftitute of the moft precious
organs and the moft delightful fenfations
®f life, look up to the benevolence of go
vernment for their only fupport.—
" For a long time, this hope has been
iljeir only confession* This hopo has
jheeu realized, Citizen Conful, and real lied :
in obedience to your commands. *
" It is your name, a name with ▼.Inch r
'.lie idews of Juftice and benevolence are t
a (Toci a ted, that, we give contort to the i
wretched, and pour the balm of ccnfolf.-
; tion into the wounded heart. In the
iormance of thii duty, we have ever found i
'Our trued and belt reward.
" Their beft fentiments of love and gra- i
jtrtude for the Firft Gonfiil, are fondly '■
cherilhed, and often but rtf»«er ;
•have thofe fentiments been difplayed with 1
fiich energy, as at the moment they learn; j
the danger yo'u have efcaped. The firfl '
emotion of their grateful hearts, was than kl- '
givings to that Providence v. hich had pro
tected yon. They have wifhed to offer you <
their congratulations, and we unite with
them, in prH'enting to you our homage and
our prayers."
After this difcourfe, one of the blind in
the name of the others, thus fpoke—
. " Citizen, Firft Conful, We, the unfor
, tunate and blind, to whom your humanity
f has been extended, come to teftify to you
, our gratitude for the good you have ajrea
. dy done, and for the benevolent inten- 1
j tions you ftiil ciierifli towards us; and our 1
t joy oil your elcape from a conspiracy. '
which could have been formed only by tin
enemies of our country.
f* llow cruel is the deprivation we at i
. this moment experience. To be fo
, near our benefafilor, yet, to be unable
,to contemplate his features. Deign at
. leaft to fpeak to us ; let the found of ]
your voice vibrate on our ears ; let that i
» voice allure us, that you feel an intereftin
our welfare, and that you will protect an
1 eftablifhment founded by an illuftrious
warrior: who like you, reared the trium
f phant arms of France on the banks of the
Nile and the Jordan ; and who like you,
_ was the glory of his age."
Sicard, then, aiked permiffion for his
' pupils to teftify to the Firft Conful their
. joy and gratitude.
Mafiieu, then, exprefled by the moft ani
mated pantomimic ligns, the following
Addrefs, which was traced with chalk
on a black board prepared for the pur
. pole.
" How pernicious and fatal was the de
, iign which was formed againft the life of
_ him, who has rendered France refpe&aile
jin the eyes of the world-—and whole death
would convert our country into a fcens of
anarchy and confufion.—But that Provi
dence, which has fo often warded oil" the
, dangers to which you have been fo often
expoled, has again extCftded bis protedt
. ing power.—Citizen General, and lirll con
r ful, the deaf and dumb, who owe to yov
the reftoration of their bjtbVed father Si
card, whom the enemies to virtue had pro
j I'cribed and exiled, have already thanked
. Heaven for fo ineltimable a benefit. What
, thankfgivings then will they nst olT;r fo
_ the prefervation of him, from whom this
p benefit was received
" Live, citizen conful, live, long as
_ your life (hall be neCeli'ary to the happinef.
,of your country, and you will be innnor
_ tal."
r riie firft conful then requtffted citizen
} Sicard to impart to his pupils ti.s follow
. ing reply :
" I have been happy in feeing the deaf,
the dumb, and the blind ; and it is with
the greateft pleaiure I have liftened to an
exprelHon of their lentiments—Say to your
pupils, citizen Secard, that I will do all
_ that is neceflary to augment their comforts;
, and to increafe their happinefs."
The firft Conful then recommended the
t deaf, dumb, and blind to the care of the
. fuperintendants, to whom he gave aifuran
ces of doing every thing that was m his
. power to ameliorate the fate of thefe un
. fortunate objc&s.
s Ma Hie U, before he retired, wrote an ex
(.■ prellion of his feniibility to the teftiihonies
of efteem which die firft conful had given
j to their inftindlors, and for the kind inter
_ eft he had taken in the fate of the pupils.
