Man acts strangely. Although a current of fresh air is the very life of his lungs, he seems indefatigable in the exercise of his inventive powers to tleprive himself of this heavenly blessing. Thus he carefully clos es every cranny of his bed chamber against its entrance, and he prefers that his lungs should receive the mixed diluvium from his cellar aud larder, and form a patent little modern aquarius in lieu of it. Why should men bo so terrified at the admission o.f the nighi air into his apartments! It is nature's ever-flowing current and never carries the destroying angel with it, See how soundly the delicate wren and tender little robin sleep under its full and immediate influence, aud how fresh and vigorous, joyous (hey rise amid the surrounding dew-drops of the morning. Al'hough exposed all night long to the air of heaven, tho lungs are never out of order, and this wekuuw by their dai ly repetition of their song.

A young man had liis hand amputated just above the wrist, hi account of having it shattered by the bursting of a gun. This happened some two yeats since, and the deficiency is sup plied by a wooden hand. At limes be tells us, that be has the most intolerable itching jetwecu these wooden fingers, in fact un lupporuble, and to use his own words, be would give a linn ii i ed dollars for tbe chan ces to give them a scratching. At other nines he has much pain where the fingers ihould be, and he can only obtain relief by .tltcring their position. When free from the pdin of itching he can discover no differ ence between that band and the sound one. He can will the fingers of the lost band to act and they seem to obey. At times the ends of the lingers are quite numb nnd cold ; being partly Hexed, bu feels that he has not the potter lo extend them.

The following are the principal Itesolu- . tions adopted : present License Law, the friends of Tern- perance have the necessary (legislative) aid ' to the successful prosecution of the work. vent if possible, the necessity ol a rcsor: to its penalties to enforce it. Ilcsvlccd, That in n Government like ours, all our laws and all our customs arc ' based on public opinion, or perhaps more properly, public opinion originates the laws and customs mat may exist. iicuce mc but iui-l beun, and we earnestly entreat the Irieuds of temperance to renewed elTorts t to persuade their fellow men, as they regard ' their well-being, to abstain from all that ' cau intoxicate. i Resolved. That as the ntilnit is the most j coauleiiaticiug the iiifruciiou of it by oth- ers. Jlcsolced, That ns the press exerts a pow erful influence in forming nnd moulding public opinion, Editors nnd publishers of lie.vspapers uud periodicals be ropectfully invited to continue their efforts in aiding the temperance reformation and in promot ing a healthful public sentiment in regard to the observance of the law. Resolved, That we recommend to the friends of temperance in cuch town of this State, to appoint a committee of one or more to md and sustain the omcers ol the law in carrying into execution tbe law prohibiting the sale of intoxicatfng liquors. Resolved, 1 hat Ilia benefits which the re cent License Law is designed lo secure to an injured community cannot be realized, and that the clandestine sales ol liquor and the appalling evils ol intemperance cannot ue remedied, while persons are nceiiseu in ell intoxicating liquors who do not respect the law, and consequently do nut teel bound by a sense of duty to refuse to sell in viola tion of the law. Resolved, therefore, That it is the duty if all towns to elect sucii selectmen, mid such only, as respect the law of the Stale, tud will refuse to license any person who is expected to sell intoxicating liquor clandes tinely and hi violation ol law. Resolved, That the success which in the ast few years has attended the efforts of the jotis of Temperance, tbe Rechabites, and ilier similar organizations m Vermont, is viewed by this Convention as a most cheer- ng indication of the increasing interest tak 3ii by tbe young men of Vermont iu, the good causo of leinperaace, aud thercforfe jives us strong ground of hope for the fu ll rc. Resolved, That Teachers of Schools in Vermont should regard it a duty of binding orcc to urge upon their pupils the great im portance of early actingjtipon strictly tern eraiicc principles. Jlesolurd, That inasmuch ns we recog nize in the trallic in intoxicating drink i lie paramount obstacle m the path of the temperance reform, we will call to our aid all tbe proper appliances within our reach lor its suppression, and never relinquish our efforts to accomplish the object, until the-l.-tt rumsellcr in the laud shall lay down hi weapons of rebellion against the cause ol God and humanity. Resolved, That the Executive Commit tee bo authorized to employ some suitable pertou or persons to Lecture through the State on the subject of Temperance during the pre.scnt year. A "ri:"wr..j IHI..I n.i "r .:.r tl ti... jieiutvcu, l n.ti inu oofies ui mis ou.n-ii for tho final success of the Temperance cause must depend upon the broadest nnd most ellectual instruction ol the mind in the State, and as a chief means of effecting it, wc recommend to the Superintendents and Teachers of the Sunday Schools of the State the utmost zeal, and energy in their instruction to their classes. The following from the New York Tri bune is apropos to the subject : We think our influential and public apiritcd citizens are remiss in performing their diitv to the Political Press. Many of them will freely spend their hundreds of dollars in a Presidential canvass, to diffuse through their several Counties the views of public policy they deem correct and impor tant, when they might have effected their cud far more certainly and tit comparative ly no expense, had tbcv in concert and sea sonably promoted the circulation therein of such journals as would most ably, ellicicnt ly Iihvo presented tbee views. There are few Counties in the Union in which the circulation of the able Political Journals might not be doubled by the concerted ef fort of their most influential arid public spir ited citizens none in which such circula tions would not make itself manifest in fu ture elections. The chief obstacle lo the prevalence of just views of public questions to day is not prejudice but iiidill'ereuce, whereof the root is ignorance. Many vote mistakenly, heedlessly, while more neglect to vote nt all, mainly because their atten tion has not been seriously drawn to, and fixed upon topics of National concern as, indeed, it could not well be unless they were induced to study the facts and con siderations relating thereto. But if every person (lid habitually study these facts, there woultld be litlle use in political drum ming ami scouring the country on the eve of an election little force in electioneer ing bribes and lalsehoous. it is the dead jo. . w uiuiii Ol ignuraiiuy aim louoiei cniic ""l I incitas-4liexo3ppoHlipind -froin which the j 'servitors of corruption, the dupes of elec tioneering fraud, aio rccruhec.

There aro persons yet living, who can recollect when the Cotton plant was only seen iu flov er pots, in which it was culti vated on account of its lovely blossom ; one of tbe prettiest flowers iu the calendar of horticulture. Observing men in the South, who know the history of the cotton-raising business of this country, are generally of opinion, that lea-growing is about to be come quite important to us, iu even less tiiuu tli.ui it has taken us to become the great cotton producing country of the world. i ho character ol soil and climale auapteti lo the growth of the tea pltint, are not such as to make it interfere ut all with the pro duction of cotton, tea lands and cotton lands those protluee these plants best, being as different in all their attributes as they well can be.

There has been a great deal of bad joking about Leather Spectacles, but there is now a great probability that they will come into actual use. One Mr. Cranmorji, an Eng lish gentleman, informs a scientific journal that his sight is defective, and that among other experiments to strengthen it he took a card ami made two fine pin holes exactly in the position of the centres uf the pupils of bis eyes, and found that he saw the trua image as correctly as ever ho did in his life. By making the pin holes larger or small er, tho focal distance is increased or dimin ished proportioiiably. In sunshine he can read at the natural focal distance, but with faint light there is the common confusion of letters. A flattening cornea will explain this ; he thinks tho cause to be " some want of contractility engendered in old age, in the iris." There is one curious fact which, he has observed, viz : that fine wire gauze, l-50tb of an inch in diameter, in meshes, enables him, when vorn close to .he eye, to read small print with great facility, at the distance of six inches, and when the mesh es are still closer, be can see tne most min ute objects with remarkable distinctness Instead of the card, something more dura ble will be substituted, and leather will 1 ... ..!.. t... r. i i .... .i.:.... ..i. - niiunmi uu louuu us iuuii ua Ulljf llllli uioi;.

As the Yankees aro creating no little ex cicmcnt in the commercial, political and military world, we hope our definition of a I genuine male Yankee may not be consider ed a miss. A real genuine Yankee is of animation. checked by moderation, guided by deter- iniiiHtion, and supported by education, He has veneration corrected by tolera- l tion, with a love of self-approbation, and ' emulation ; and when reduced to a slate of aggravation, can assume thti most profound j dissimulation for the purposo of retaliation, always combined, if possible, with specu- ' lation. ! A real live Yankee, just caught, will be found not deficient in the following quali ties : Ho is self-denying, self-relying, always ' trying and into everything prying.

He is a dragging, gagging, blagging, stri ving, thriving, swopping, jostling, bustling, wrestling, musical, quizzical, astronomical, philosophical, poetical, and comical sort of u character, whose manifest destiny is to spread civilization to the remotest corner of the earth, with an eye always en the look out for the main chance. -Rogersvillt 'Venn) Times.
