TT7-JI- rl IT ; trunam vn: i am so glad you have come again, Uncle Parley, I have oi sucn a number oi questions to ask you. I have just been reading about some goods catching fire by themselves v in a wnienouse; how can that be? Uncle Parley Because, my neph ew all bodies which contain what chem ists call carbon have a tendency to in crease their temperature when packed into masses in a moist state, or when water rain or air gets to them, and then a spontaneous combustion takes .place. Hay, corn, flatf, cotton, turf, flour, sallron, wool, oatmeal, roasted coffee, rags, coal, charcoal, unslacked . lime, floor cloth, and bales pf woolen cloth and cotton goods, are all when lmnp, likely to become ignited. Waste cotton, or rags that have been used to clean oil lamps, have frequently been the cause of houses being on fire; and house-keepers cannot be too care- iul of those things for this reason. , Caroline Yes, I now see that we must not attribute all those fires to in cendiaries. Cut ho w was it that mam ma said the other evening the moon beams had rendered the meat in the pantry tainted? Uncle Why in bright moonlight nights all substances, and animal food especially, give out their heat freelv, and are thus covered with a dew or moisture, which produces decomposi tion. The moon, for the same reason, rjuickens the growth of plants, and may even in many climates have a great ef fect upon the human frame. William Then is that the reason "why vve feel better in clear nights than cloudy ones? Uncle Partly so; for in cloudy nigius trie neat Irom the earth's sur face is returned from the clouds azain, which then form a kind of concave mir ror, producing a hot stifling sensation, and keeping the air warm. This we do not feel on clear, calm nights, when there is no vapor to throw back the heat. Oaroline- -But the sun and moon are always apparently larger when thev rise and set, than when thev are above us. vvhv is that? Uncle Because their positions are more oblique, and, consequently, thur rays being more rellected, and dispers ed, they then appear larger than when they are elevated above the horizon. William Then why dont we see the sun rellected in a well during the day time; 1 have often seen the stars there? Uncle For much the same reason. Tke rays of the stars fall perpendic ularly, whereas the rays of the sun, falling obliquely, cannot be seen there. Caroline 1 have been looking at this beautiful bouquet of flowers for some time, but I cannot conceive why the leaves of all trees, plants, and flow ers should be green. Uncle -It is a wise provision of prov idence that the colour which is most .refreshing to the eye, should be that which is most generally diffused over thefaceof nature. Now, the color of carbon, which is a constituent part of plants, is dark blue, whilst the tissue flf the cells and vessels is yellow, and hence a green colour is produced. In spring and, autumn, when there is little rarbon, you must have noticed they were more yellow than in summer? Carolin But how do flowers, as sume such a variety of colour's?. : -, Uncle-Why the action of the sun's to make tho necessary inquiries and rays on the oxygen accumulated in the weigh the operating causes in his mind petals ol the flowers, produces acids, Most virgin clays contain very sensible winch turn them red,-whilst the alkalies J portions ot potash, a substance indispen change it through all the shadjs of pur- sable to the healthful growth of most ile, violet and blue, thus producing ev-1 plants; therefore, in addins clay to ery shade, from the purest white to the 1 sand we supply asalt absolutely essen m us i intense crimson, inose plants i iiai to we successful culture, auu wiucn which contain the greatest quantity ot does not naturally abound except alkali in their ashes, have their ashes in very minute traces, indeed, in soils either yellow or blue, whilst those where silex very lamely predomi that have an excess of acid pro-J nates..

PROSPECTUS. The Pictorial and Illustrated Editions ol Shaksfeare. lately published in England, are amongst the most beautiful specimens of the recent and remarkable improvement of the art of Wood Engraving, which by combining great excellence of execution with economy of price, has given an unprecedented ditfusion to the most useful as well as the most exquisite productions of the Arts of uesign. Ihe designs of Kenny Meadows for the illus trations of Tyas edition of Shakspeare, express the character of the several personages, and the spirit of the scene, with wonderful truth and power; whilst the wood engraving of Knight s Pictorial e- dilion, combine with the highest merits of art and taste, such a learned and minute accuracy as to sce nery, costume, architecture and antiquity, as to make them a perpetual and most instructive com mentary upon the Poet's text. It is now proposed to embody in an American Edition, the admi rable illustrationsofboth these editions, engraved with equal excellence of mechanic J execution, to add to tliese, other engravings from eminent artists, as Reynolds, Fuseli, S. Newton, tu., and to ac company them with a beautifully printed and cor rect text- But the publisher, nnxiouslthat his conn try should pay some part of the homage due Irom her to the greatest of Poets, as to one who belongs not solely to ,ngiaua, out to all who speak tne tongue from redemption of forfeited lands Paid State Treasurer Funds - arising from sale of Section 16 State funds in Treasury Paid Township treasurers for Common school purposes School funds in Treasury 1,876,36,2 264,32,6 nftn- t ,..., and poor purposes irums oi natural piinosopiiy. ni st n:nncnnP;t. t fo.i,,. , . n , ... i .
