It is related of Lignor Blitz, that wishing one day while in Pennsylvania, to procure a draft on New York, for a certain amount, he stepped into one of the country banks in that State and made known his wishes to the proper officer, who, by the way, was a stiff staid old Quaker. Being in formed that he could be accommodated, he was "In whose name shall I draw the draft?" . " In my own. Signor Blitz," was the answer. ' " Art thou ihe.wonderful man who is pei farm ing all these mystep'ous things V asked the Qua ker. . . - ' The same," answered the Signor. " And now, friend, will thee show me one of thy tricks?" enquired the Quaker. " With pleasure," said the Magician, and tak inr a ouarter of a dollar from his pocket, he hand ed it to the officer and requested him to mark it so that he would be able to distinguish it. This the Quaker did. 1 ' " " And now," said the Signor, taking-a glove from hts pocket and placing- it over the quarter, which he had laid upon thV'cQunter, " are you sure the Quarter is under the glove? Quite sure,' ' answeted the Quaker, gently lifting the glove and beholding the quarter snugly ensconsed under it. . . . "S'ire, quite sure?" asked the Signor. " Yes, friend, I see it with mine own eyes," an swered the other. ' " Lift the glove," said the Magician. The Quaker did so, and to his consternation the quarter was gon. . Frirnd," said the Quaker, " wilt thou do that once more?" Again the Quaker pi iced the quarter in the same position, and motioning the Signor to stand biick, the Q'iakr placed hi3 eyes down upon a level with the counter, and (hen making a sudden dive at the glove, he lifted it, and the quarter was gone'. ' 1 ' -1 Jonathan," said the Quaker, drawing' a long breath, " place that ' money," referring to the amount received for the draft,." awny in the safe and lock it up, and put the key in thy pocket." Well," said the Sinor,- who i always fond of a joke, "now I will give you a proposition. "If I can, standing where I am, draw that money in to my pocket, J may keep it; if I cannot, 1 will surrender the draft, and the money is yours,' " Go thy way, friend, thou shouldn't not do such things," said the Quaker, politely bowing the Signor to the door. r. . ANECDOTE OF JENNY LIND. As Jenny Lind was coming over from Europe, she desired the Captain of the steamship in case of there being any fine moonlight night, to Call her on deck, without regard to the lateness of the hour. Such a night did occur on the passage a splendid moon lit up ihe heavens and the sea while dark masses of clouds gave shadows and variety to the glory. It was. one of those scenes which seem to bear witness to the intellect that the great truths of revelation are realy truths which convince the soul that the Creator of all things, must 'be a Being of unlimited love, arid that beyond the boundaries of thi earthly exist ence, opens wide still more realms of infinite beau ty and eternal peace. Jenny and the rest of the passengers had retired totheif berths, but the fair Swededressed herself and came upon deck. She contemplated the magnificent scene in silence for a few moments and then falling upon her knees, she began a low song to the ' Deity, full .of relig ious fervor and reverential awe. The Captain says that he wai never tnorft- impressed than by this song so heartfelt, so entrancing in its angel ic. breathings of praise. and gratitude towards the great author of Life and Light and Glory. . Saturday 'Evening Post. Vlovi CoAt was utibE.' ' Geology has proved that, at one pehdd, there existed an cnnrmnnslrf abundant land vegetation; the toins or rubbish of which, carried into seas, and there sunk te the bot tom, and afterward covered by sand now recognize as coal, t .This was a natural, transaction, of vast consequence to us, seeing ; how much utility we find jn coal, both for , warming pur dwellings and for various manufactures, as well as the production of steam, by which so great a mechanical power is generated. It may 'naturally excite surprise that the vetretahle remains .should have so com. pletely changed their apparent character, and te convj black... But this can be explained by chem istry : and part of the marvel becomes clear to the simplest understanding whom we recall the ami liar fact, that damp hayj thrown close info' a heap," gives out heat, and becomes of a dark colon :- When a vegetable mass is excluded' trbm the air, and subjected to great pressure, a bituminous fermentatidn ' is produced, and 'the'-result is the mineral coal,' which is of various characters, ad cording as the mass has been originally interming led with sand, clay, or other eaithly imparities On account of the change effected by mineraliza tion, k is difficult to. detect in coaMhe tract of, a Vegetable structure; bul these can be made, clear JJt all except the highly bituminous caking coat, "y cutting or polishing, it down into thin transpit Tent slices, when the microscope"sriows the fibres ar4 cells very plainly. From distinct 'Isolated ff"aeM fUu m the sand-stones amidst the coal beds, we discover the nature of the plants of .this era. They are almost all' of a simple cellular structure, and such as exist .with us in small forma, (horse tails, club mosses and fens,) but advanced ia an- enormous magnitude.' The1 -species are all long since extinct' Tha vegetation generally is such as now grows W clusters "of ttftpical islands f but it must have been the result of a high temner- ature obtained otherwise than that of the tropical regions now is, tot trie coal strata re .found iq tjie temperate, and even the .polar regions, i a-t n----. ; The concliisiors-theTefore, to- which most- geol ogist have arrived is, that the earth originally bn incandescent or highly heated massj' was gradu ally cooled down, until in the carboniferous 'peri od it fostered a growth of terrestrial vegetation all o ver its surface, to which, the existing jungles of the tropics are more barrenness in comparison. The high and uniform . temperature, -combined with a greater proportion of carbonic acid gas in' the manufacture, 'could not only1 sustain a gigantic and proli6e vegetationbut would abo create dense vapors,' shoWers'and rains, and these again gigan tic rivers, periodical inundations, and deltas. ;Thns all the conditions, for extensive, deposits of wood in extuaries would a rise from this high tempera ture; and every, circumstance connected with the coal measures points to such conditions.
