... The Falling Leaf. . ,
,. 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 ", . ( , ;.,..,

i As Impobtant Discover?. 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.' ' If such
an objection Was urged to would-be-son-in-law
when there, were but two printing, of
fices in the United States, how can a printer
hope to get a wife now, when the present
census show the number to be 1567.

' A Death BeU.
A pretty story is told of the cas tins' of
the bell for the church of St. Magdalen, of
Breslau. When the metal was just ready
to be poured into the mould, the chief found
er went to dinner.and forbade his apprentice,
under pain of death; to not touch the vent by
which the metal wasconveyed. The youth.
curious to see the operation, disobeyed or
ders, the whole of the metal ran in to the
mould, and when the enraged ' master re
turned from his meal, slew the apprentice
on the spot. " 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. His petition
was granted and the bell has since been
rung at every execution. ;

incursion into lluoau, where they bad cap

ter of three days in d three nights, during
which ..O,'O0O people men, women and

port to be of the 7ri of August. The story
is hardly credited py the journals that make
public. A correspondent of the New York

of August. 20, rfpresents therebelion 'in

Bom os Scott's Dffeat. 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.
This is undoubtedly and pliilo.-ophicully true;
Scott was a victim, to unanimous public sen
timent. 1

ana, Mr. Soule, a native of France, and Mr.
Benjamin,' a West Indian Creole :
- : After the 4th of March next, Louisiana
will have by far the most eloquent Senators
of that bodj, and, what is more remarkable
and rather puzzling to the exalters of An-glo-Saxouism,
neither of them will have a
drop of that all-eonquering and boastful
blood which, by virtue" of its orkrin in the
bleak Caucuses, claims the privilere of look
ing down with contempt, upon all the rest of
mauiiind.' Jiotli are children Of the bouth,
the one born in the West India Islands, and
the other in the South of France both are
full of tlie ardor, energy and eloquence that
Dclongs to their olive complexions and lust
rous eyed natives of the Tropics. Tl.eir
presence in the Senate will be the first oc
casion in the history of this State, that both
parlies have been represented iu that body
by its first class men. - - -

Superioity of American Iron.
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

The Milwaultie News is responsible for the

funny enough to last a fortnight;
"A iriend ot ours, who possesses a quiet

side, and the females on the other. The

The Siamese Twins.. - t
Many persons who, in days gone br, nar
taken a lively interest in the welfare ptt
Messrs. Eng and Chang Bunkers, the cele
brated Siamese Twins, may be glad to leant
that these gentlemen are well, and live at
Mount Airy, in this (Surry) county, ur-'
rounded by their wives and children. I
Mr. Eng has six and Mr.' Chan fire"
children, all of whom are apt scholars and
remarkably well behaved, manifesting the
strongest possible desire to learn their lessons
and to secure the good will of their teacher.
They all partake strongly of the most refined 1
Siamese cast of countenance, form and
manner of deporting themselves. In tntb, '
they are a credit to their parents, and to the
community in which they live.
Messrs. Chang aud Eng are alike remark,
able for their industry and belligerent dispo-'
sitions. They are strict and thorough goin"J
business men, and woo to the unfortunate
man who dares to insult them. ';. ' '
Formerly they resided in Wilkins county,
iu uouaequeucu oi tne numerous actions
for assault and battery bro't against them i
the county, ihey removed inte the adjoinirs
wiuuy, snoruy aiier winca they were fict
9 1 n ana costs at uockiord, the county sea
tor epiiwing a uoara into splinters over
neaa oi a man wdq had jnsalted them."
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. . . . '
mat. tney into lonneny received letters trotu
her, but latterly they had heard no tidinsra,"
of her and even if they were to receive' kt.
ters from her, written in the Siamese lan--guage,
they would not be able to read them, ,
as they had forgotten their mother tongue.
They are excellent hands to carry up ;
corner of a log house exceeding ail their ,
neighbors in cutting saddle and notches irt t
corner logs both of them wielding the axa .
with a power and dexterity superior to any
of the most expert wood-cutters in thi t
wooden country. When they chop or fight,;
they do so double handed ; and in driving a ,
horse or chastising their negroes, botu"of -
th f-m rise tblttsfi wilhout mercy. ....
: A gentleman who pm chased a black man
a short time ago from them, informed the .
writer he was "the worst whipped negro he
ever saw." . ,
They arc inveterate smokers and chewer ,
of tobacco each chewing his quid and smo- -king
his own pipe ; it has been remarked. ,
however, in support of the sympathy suppo
sed to prevail throughout their system, that '
as a general rule, when one takes a fresU ,
quid, the other does the same, v It is ah-o
generally admitted that there is a , marked i
difference in the systems and temperament
of the gentlemen, but still they almost inva
riably draw the same, reference from topics
submitted to their consideration, and arrive
at similar conclusion s," Mr. Eng not unfie- ,
quently gives serious offence to Mr, Cbane,
