It lias, beeu a fai;cy, -born of our day dreams, that for every leaf that falls, a hu man soul ascends; furrery leaf that unfold it spirit glides from the dim past i.ito the ac tive present: and thickly as lull the decaying leaves, do forms of human uiould drop into the soil. ,: .,, ',' We watch the yellow leaf as it struggles with its, downward tendency, essaying in vain to hang in midair, shrinking from the old resting place, and buoyed up with a momentary hope as a stray breeze wafts it upward again only to descend more rapidly. It seems to wail, to shrink, as it sett: es near er and nearer to the detested soil. As , it lies worn out anil dead upon the chill earth, the spirit whispers: t Another has gone, as the nu;i drops town to the, tomb! , Mature drops a leaf tor everyoit';. who falls, a bead for every sin she thinks. t .fi ,u . , ;. r,. ,As we stand, beside the spent leaf, bo stands weeping ones around the new-made jjraye, Ah! as , they embalm their dead in tears and undying memories, so will we em balm thee, thou lypage of human , frailty. Thus between the leaves of the book of books the sickly-hued leaf is laid as a memento. As I gaxe on the skeleton form, I follow the decay of the one for whom it felt, and turn-,, irig thoughtfully away, gaze up to tho my riad of leaves, and ask, '' Which one shall fall forme?" y ", .

A scientific correspondent ot the New York Courier has made an important discovery in voltaic elec tricity, whicu may be applied to the cure of weak nerves. It is this: . , "If a cylandj'ieal piece of zinc is placed near the top of a broom handle, and another about fifteen inches below, connexion be ingmade between the two by means of a wire, a person taking hold of the top piece with the right h tnd, while the left, is placd on the copper or lower piece, forms a volta ic circle, which becomes powerful . the more the broom is used. The hands must be without gloves so vthat the metals are in contact, auij the windows of the room should be opened when the broom is used, so as to admit the air freely. The discovery is in valuable to females in a weak state for want of active life; and for males it in'iy bo appli ed to axe handles." , 1 , Wo suppose all weak j'oung ladies and gentlemen will be practising this experiment every day. . i . , .. ,t . , , , . , , ... , Printisg OiTiciis.-W.hen Dr.Franklia's mother-in-law first discovered that the young man had a hankering for her daugh ter, that 'good old lady said she did not know so well about giving her daughter to a printer; there were already two printing offices in , the, .United States, and she was not certain the country would support them. It was plain young Franklin would depend for the support on the profits of a third, and this was rather a doubtful--clrnnee.'

" Oil "brealiinjj" awrty the mould ne found that lie had been too hasty lor the bell was cast as perfectly as possible. When it was hung in its place, and the master had. been sentenced - to death' by the ' sword, for the murder of the appi entice, he entreated the authorities that he ; might be allowed to hear it once before he died.

According to a letter received by a friend of the Phil adelphia Ledyer, from one of his whig fihnds in Hanover county. Virginia, Bolts was ask ed the other day, how he accounted for the defeat. He replied, there was nothing more easily explained, for tho foreign vote was against Scott, and so was the . native vote, the Catholic vote, the Protestant vo'.e the north, south , east and west, were all against him and it was impossible, in a democracy, for any one to resist tuch a deeided and unanimous expression of popular feeling.

It ss a matter of national importance to all engaged in the iron tra le, both in the man ufacture and use of the article, to know the comparative value of the English and American manufacturer. The following, from the American Rail road Jimrnol good authority ou the subject gives tlie decided preference to the Amer ican article: The testimony of the celebrated mettal urgist. Dr. Mushat, of Scotland, is decisive He says that Scotch bars do not contain moie than 90 per cent of pure metal; where as, American iron contains 09 per cent. fliut we have evidence on this score stronger than an opinion founded on chemical analy-1 sis. Late experiments at the Wusbington Navy Yard demonstrated that English chain cable, of a certain thickness of diameter was ruptured by a Lref.king strain of 71C pounds less than was required to rupture American chain cable of tlie enme diameter. During the experiments at the Washing ton Navy Yard, the strength of a chain of French manufacture, was also tried. It yielded at a breaking strain of 1081 pounds, while an American chain of the snme thick ness only yielded at a strain of 1277 pounds. Similar results followed after ovei two hun dred tests. With reference to Scotch and domestic iron, it is shown that the tenacity of the latter was more than double that of the former. .:. t- - ""' J' Castor Beans. fc"On a late trip of one of our New Orleans steamers, she ,was crowded with German emigrants. As might be expecteJ, their appetites for fruit aud vegetables, after a long sea voyage, was most voracious. At Salem, a short distance below this city, the boat received some fifteen or twenty saoksof castor beans, consigned to Mr. Blow. - The appearance of the beans being "good to the eye," excited the cravings of the emigrants. Finally, curiosity and appetite triumphed; a bag was surreptiously opened, a larga pan full extracted, and ahuge luncheon of soup prepared. In a short time the passengers in the cabin, and the officers of the boat, i were startled by the report that the cholera, in its worst form, had broken out on deck. On going below, they found that the castor j oil was doing its work. The bag lay exposed, and a large pot full of this rare delicacy steaming hot on the table, the thing was soon solved, and the captain had to jio into quarantine, because, as ho said, the Dutch didn't "know beans." wi Iiejpubli can. .; , ; ., , , . . i . , The Milwaultie News is responsible for the following., .

The masculiuedarkies were arranged "like four and twenty black birds, all in a row" on one side, and the females on the other.

As regards the supposed sympathy exist ing between them, it may be stated that' their most intimate acquaintances deem them' to be entirely independent of everything of the kind, and give us instances to sustain their opinion ; that not long since they at-' tended an auction sale of hogs, and bid a-' gainst each other till they ran tip the prices ' altogether above tho market rates. Also, that on one occasion Mr. Eng or Chang,f was taken ill and took to his bed, where he 1 lay complaining for some time, although his 1 bru:hcr scolded him severely all the whil for detaining him in bed when he ought t! have been attending to the business of their ' plantation. ',,- , . - I .,-;-n- ,,' Ou another occasion, as they were pass- f ing up the road, a gentlemaa inquired of t them where they were going whereupon Mr. Eng replied, "I am eroing; over the Blue r llidtre in a staire;" at the same instant Mr. t Chang, looking over his shoulder, replied, with an arch smile, "I am going baek home to look after our wives aud children.''--When questioned about their mother some-. time since by au acquaintance, they stated .1... l l l e i. . . .
