-Some remarkable facts are being
elicited by the investigations of natural
ists in Borneo. In the stems of certain
plants found there galleries are tunnel
led by a species of ants and it is asserted
on the antlerity of Beccari that the pres
enes.of the anto are actually essential to
the existence of the plants, for unless at
tacked by the iuseets when young the
-The sun's radiation is not without
influence on the comfort of the occupants
of a house, and the intfuence may be
very differently felt, according to the ex
posure of houses. In a building unef
fected by any shade Herr Vogt recently
made a series of experiments todetermine
the relative amount of the sun's heat
daily entering the diflerent sides. He
obtained the surprising result that more
heat enters a building through the east
and west walls than through the wall
facing directly south, although the south
side is more exposed to the direct action
of the ann's rays nearly twice as long as
either of the others. A considerably
greater quantity of heat is received by
the east than by the west side.
-The St. Gothard tunnel furnishesan
other striking example of acurate sur
veying. Although the entire length of
the tunnel is nine and a quarter miles,
the two galleries were bored with such
precision that they met with a difference
of only four inches in level and a lateral
4sviation of less than eight inches.
-The extensive studies of Dr. De
caisne have proven to him conclusively
that immoderate smoking of tobacco pro
duces in certain subjects-especially in
women and children-an irregular action
of the heart, which quickly disappears
when the vauise is removed.
-lu eases of suspended aninmation, or
asphyxia, life should not be too soon
given up, Discussing premature burials,
in a recent coummnaication to the French
Academy, Prof, Fort stutes that he was
enabled to restore to life a child three
years old by plaeticing artificial respir
ation on it four hours, commenciug three
hours and a half after apparent death.
Jn another case which came under his
observation, a physician restored a nearly
drowned person after four hours artificial
respiration. This person had been in the
water ten minutes, and the physician ar
rived one hour after asphyxia.
-Fish ConmmIssioner Green notes a
curious instance of insect strategy. One
day he observed a reed wasp alight near
a spider's neat. Creeping cautiously
.round towards the entrance to the nest,
the wasp stopped a little short of it, and
for a mcutent remained perfectly quiet.
Then reaching out one of his antennal,
be wriggled it before the openihg and
withdrew it, 'T'huis overture produced
the desired effect, for a large spider
quickly ran out to investigate the cause
of the disturbance. As the spider reached
the most favorable point for attack, the
wasp quickly sprang foirward and dis
patched his foe with a single thrust of
his sting. The wasp then repeated his
feint until apparently satisfied that his
assault would be met with no further
oppeositouzben hl ýt~tered the nest and
slaughtered the young spiders, which he
aflerards carried away.

-With the -telephone, writing tele
graph and many other remarkable ap
plications of electricity fresh in mind,
no one seems greatly surprised by the
anmsuancemeut that notonly may speech
and varieties of motion be transmitted
telegrapbleally bat that form and color
also may be reproduced at a distance
through the instrumentality of the same
potent agent. This result seemns to have
been attained by the disphote of Dr.
Licks. The apparatus consists of mr
essential parts--tiaeareeeiving airror, the
transmitting wires, an ordinary galvanic
batterr, and the reproducing speculum.
In a model lately beibited the mairer
was six Indhes by four in size and had
seventy-two fine wires, the latter being
gathered together at a little distance be
hind the frame and covered with an in
sulating material. On reaching the re
ceiving specalum each little wire was
connected to a division corresponding to
its place on the mirror. Wires were also
run from the battery to each diaphotic
plate, forming a circuit which could be
closed at pleasure. The theoretical ac
tion of the instrument appears to be as
follows: The waves of light from an ob
ject are conducted through an ordinary
camera, so-that they fall on certain di
visions of the mirror when the electric
current is closed. The light and accom
panying heat produce momentary chem
ical changes in the amalgam of the mir
ror-which consists of a peculiar com
pound of selenium and chromium. These
changes modify the electric current and
cause similar changes in the correspond
ing partitions of the remote speculum,
thus reproducing the image, which, by a
second camera, may be seen by the eye
or thrown upon a screen.
A Trip to Donaldsonville.
Some Interesting Items Ooncerning Our
N. O. Democrat, April 20.
Sunday morning, a representative
of the Democrat boarded the Morgan
Railroad cars at the Algiers landing
for the purpose of making a flying
trip over the Donaldsonville branclh
,At 8 o'clock exactly the "all aboard"
rang through the depot, and a few
minutes ride brought the reporter to
that part of the country desolated by
the Sharpe crevasse. For a distance
of three miles the road-bed emerged
above the flooded land some six
inches, and at every hundred feet,
through the culverts, rushed the flood
with seething force to the woods in
the rear. These culverts were, in the
incipiency of the crevasse, unable to
offer a free passage to the impetuous
flow of the waters, but now, at each
one a system of V shajped dams weak
eas sufliciently the momentum of the
waters to facilitate their easy influx
to the swamps. In the course of a
few hours Donaldsonville 'ens reached,
and the reporter, availing himself of
the moderate cost of one of the uaa
merous " stages " at the depot, made
a rapid but satisfactory inspection of
Doualdsontville is exactly sixty-five
miles from New Orleans by rail, and
about seventy-two wiles from the city
by thi river. It is a town of some
2000 souls, noted for the hospitality,
genial and enterprising disposition of
its inhabitants. It has a numuer of
groceries, dry goods stores and other
places of business, where all the com
modities and luxuries of life can be
obtained on moderate (city) terms.
Among the enterprising wen of the
town Mr. B. Lemaun can be justly
ranked, and his name is mentioned by
the reporter withunt fear of being ac
cused of " puffing," for Mr. Lewann,
in his extensive' store, corner of Cres
cent street and Railroad Avenue, is
able to fusnish every toing to his cus
tomers, fronm a box of saidines up to
a complete set of parlor furniture.
Next to him, and in the same block,
is the dry goods store of Mrs. M. Israel,
an establishment es well furnished
that the Dacizigers or Holmes would
not be ashamed to ackuwledge it as
Donaldsonville has also a well or
ganized and efficient lire department
of three companies, which are fully
able to furnish all the help needed in
case of tire, viz : Ascensien Hook and
Ladder Company No. 1, Phleuix Fire
Company No. 1, and, lastly, a very
efficient bucket corps, composed of

On the ninth of May proximo, the
annual parade of the Donaldsonville

ladies and geitlemen of the town to

organ for the Catholic Church. The
programme was well chosen and fre

A notable event ici the town Sunday
evening was the turnout of the Cetield
Guards (Company C, Orleans Artil
lery), in full uniform, headed by a
band of music, and conveyed in three
Immense carts. They went down the.
ceast to pay a visit to their sponsor,
Mr. Cofleld, whose plantation is about
five miles below Donaldsonville.
The order of Procession was as fel
lows: First came a light barouche
containing Col. A. J. Bachemin of the
Orleans Artillery; Capt. D'E. Jones.
Lieutenants P. Klopman, F. B. Ear
hart, J. J. Lafargue and the reporter.
Next followed the carts with the band
of music and the file. On euterifg
Mr. Cofield's place Capt. Jones pissed
his men in line in front of their spon.
sor, and in a few well chosen words
explained that the visit of the mili
tary was to show Mr. Cofield what his
"boys" knew about drill and discip
line. Capt. Jones then put his men
through various difcultl and pretty
maneuvers, which were greatly ad
mired by all present, especially the
ladies. After drill Mr. Cofleld invited
every one into his house, where many
and many a glass was drained to the
health of the host and the prosperity
of Cofield's battesy. At eight o'clock
Sunday the reporter boarded the R.
E. Lee, and arrived safeand sound at
midnight in New Orleans.
