75' The climate of the New England States is remarkably dry when compared with Ger many, and most parts of Europe. Many differences, arising from this cause, are no ticed bv foreign artisans when they settle in Massachusetts. Here, painters can finish their work in a much shorter time j cabinet makers use much thicker glue; watch makers use animal instead of vegetable oil; European furniture, when imported, does not wear well; stimulants are much more exciting to the physical system. Foreigners lose flesh, and become habitu ally thin; the nerves are stimulated. All nations living in a dry air tend to a thinness of flesh: in a moist air, to corpu- lencv. This must necessarily have, a strong influence upon the decenclants of huglisl) cattle, when bred here, as we find it has. j Exchange. New Patent you making Nails. There has recently been invented and put into practical operation in this city, a new ma chine for making cut nails, the great pecu liarity of which is that it is self-feeding, and will manufacture in a given time nearly, if not quite as many again nails as any other known process, and that one man, (as it is claimed,) with the assistance of a boy, will operate ten machines. There is also a great saving in iron, there being a waste of only abouti quarter of an inch in 10 feet, which i the length of the sizes of iron placed in the machine at one time. It has been shown that one machine will manufacture from 300 to 350 nails per minute, all of which are perfect in form and finish. The cost of the machine is $2oQ. The inventors are Vm. Fitzpatrick and Joseph Her, two practical nailers, for many years in the employ of the Albany Iron and Nail Works Company, in this city. A patent has been secured for the United States, and measures been taken to obtain a patent in Great Britain and the Canadas. Troy Whig. This is given as a personal description of the Czar : "lie is taller by a head than most of his courtiers, while the outline of his form is perfect, lie is robust and muscular. The head though somewhat too small in propor tion to the rest of his body, is still in keep ing with his broad chest. The usual expres sion of his face would suit a statue. A fixed severity and consciousness of majesty are the predominant characteristics. This expression certainly sometimes assumes a more friendly aspect ; but it does not appear in the eve. winch seldom beams kindlv while the mouth never smiles. The latter feature, indeed, is regularly formed, but the sharp, thin lips indicate austerity and harsh ness. No sensuality is observable there, nor in any part of the lower lace; neither do those lips tell that they have Veen used to give, utterance to words of mildness, while the corners of the mouth betray too plainly contempt of men, and a reserve that never spoke a word in the fullness of confidence. The overhanging eyelashes lend to his phys ique something lurking, even in simple, con versation. When angry, his eyes glare terri bly ; but they have no brightness for softer emotions. The finely chiselled nose runs straight down from the high forehead, de noting, according to physiognomists, an in capacity for self-denial." The Sixth Commandment. A capital point was made by one of the counsel for the prosecution at the trial of Matt. Ward, in answer to Tom Marshall's allusion to Matt. Ward's travels and his visit to Mount Sinai, where God delivered the law to Moses. The counsel wondered if the prisoner, when amidst the sublimities of Sinai, where he indulged in a profusion of sacred senti ments, had ever read in the Decalogue, " Thou shnlt not hill ! ' We bought a few days ago a paper of gen uine Havana smoking tobacco. The out side wrapper looked as old and Spanish as possible the inside wrapper was a piece of the N. Y. Tribune of a very recent date. to home manufactures. Madison Pemocrat. St. Paul, Minnesota, has now 708 houses and 4,700 inhabitants. It began to be A village in 1818. Another New State. A bill to provide for the admission of Oregon into the Union as a State, has already been reported in the U. S. House of Representatives, and the legislature of Oregon has taken the prelimi nary steps towards calling a convention to form a constitution. This is looking to the admission of Oregon as a State in 1855, by which time it is presumed there will be the requisite amount of population in the terri tory to entitle it to the new honors to which it is now aspiring. The Oregonians are thus calculating upon a rapid growth by acces sions of population from the Atlantic States, which may not be fulfilled. The emigration overland this season does not appear to be very large in fact, Nebraska absorbs the attention of emigrants. When the census of 1850 was taken the population of Oregon was 13,294. A territorial census recently taken shows it to have a population amount ing to over 40,000, -or an increase of nearly 27,000 in three years, or about 148 per cent. This is in the ratio of about 46 per centum per annum, which would be entirely inade quate to swell the aggregate, of population to over 90,000 in a single year. However, we presume the Oregonians think there is noth ing to be lost by agitating the subject, and perhaps they think also that as the admis sion of a new State is always delayed un necessarily, they will have their delay before hand.
