Philosophers have theorized upon the nature
and qualities of light in all ages; and the prevail
ing opinions ot our day do not agree in relation
to them. Dr. Dick gives two opinions that pre
vail : first, that light is a subtle matter pervading
the whole universe, and is continually agitated
by luminous bodies, producing a vibratory mo
tion, whereby objects are rendered visible. This
theory has ut least the merit of beinsr abstruse.
The other is more easily comprehended, and con-
weijucuuy, we juage, more popular: mat Hgnt
consists of an emission or constant shedding of
the particles of luminous bodies, caused by con
Light. approaches in a straight line from the
body which emits it. It cannot be seen through
a bended tube. If it peers into a dark room,
through an aperture, its ray forms a straight
line. Light darts and shoots with a velocity ex
ceeding anything man has been able to accom
plish. Yet its velocity give it no weight or
momentum which a person can perceive by be
ing struck with it; but experiments have been
tried, the result of which led to the belief that
it has some force in its velocity; but so small
that the rays from a concave mirror, thrown up
on an instrument, was calculated to amount to
the weight of " one tv elve hundred millionth
part of a grain," which we should say was "cata
mount to nothing."
All experience goes to prore that light is es
sential to the life, the health, and the happiness
of man, as well as t the existence of the animal
and vegetable world. Man and beast and all
vegetation love light, and turn to the sun for
comfort, as a suckling turns to its mother. Who

at the bungling manner in which the Sheriff of

Sheriff was so green, or so scared, th t he did

death by the weight of his own. body ; a slow and
painful process. He struggled and once regain

awhile, pushed him off the platform again, to

and a small hole opened for the admission of
light, the plant will turn towards that hole, and
even alter its shape, or grow in a crooked direc
tion, to get towards the light ! If a fire be made
in the room, the plant will not be attracted away
by it, which would seem to prove that the light

Light is necessary to give a plant its natural

raise a large amount ol funds; the capital
prize was one hundred thousand dollars.
A poor man who had risked a ticket, drew
the capital prize. The lottery, instead of
helping the City, brought it in debt: the

Col. Washington returned to his quarters
on the 24th, of September, from his march
through the Navajoe country. At first
he found the Indians very troublesome,
anil not disposed to come to terms ; but he
finally succeeded in concluding a treaty
of an important character with the Nava
joes, by which it is stipulated that they
give, up all. the property which tire maraud
ing board band of their tribe- have stolen,
release all prisoners, and acknowledge
their subjection to the United States.
The Indians appeared perfectly satisfied
with the arrangement.
Previous to the conclusion of the treaty,
Col. Washington had an engagement with
a party of the tribe, in which six Indians
were killed and several wounded.
Major Stein, who was wounded in a fight
with the Apaches on the 16th of .August

The demands of the French consul, the
most important of which related to the
importation of French brandies into the
islands at reduced rates of duty, and to the
sale of ardent spirits by French whalers
visiting the ports of the islands for refresh
ments, were refused by the Hawaiian gov
ernment. The Hawaiian fort was seized, disarmed,
its ammunition destroyed, and the Hawai
ian flag lowered for about three, days
when the French occupation of the fort
ceased, and the Hawaiian flag was again
raised. One of the public vessels of the
Hawaiian government was also sei.cd by
the French, and sent off under French con

authorities then left the islands. "

what the result of all this will be, but the
