Phrenology, derived from tho two Greek
words "Phrth," : w'hich' signifies mind, and
"Idostlfse'orjrse, professes to be a sys

For instance,' one was distinguished for the
unsurpassed beauty j1 of his penmanship,
another for paiming, another in composition,
another in mathematics, another in- Ian
guages, &.c. Some were remarkable for ilia,
mildness of their dispositions, while others
were turbulent and morose.; Hi continued
to make , further observations. He noticed
that those who had the best faculty of com
mitting to memory, had full and prominent
eyes. Those that were distinguished for
real kindness and ttue benevolence, were
high at the top of the frontal portion of the
head. Those that possessed a mean and
selfish disposition, were thick through the
hea J from car to ear. Those that evinced
great decision of character, were elevated at
tho crown of the head. Those that exhib
ted great manifestations of mental power,
had bold, high, and prominent foreheads.
In this way Phrenology has arrived to its
present degree of perfection. Scientific and
literary men have examined it with much
precaution, smong whom are Messrs. Spurz
heim, Combe, Fowler, and others too nu
merous to mention. The result of their ex
aminationi have proved satisfactory, bring'
Ing to light that which ' has been shrouded
in darkness for ages.; Why, then, do so
many set themselves in hostilo array against
that which is so eminently calculated to el
evate the moral and physical, condition of
man, and develop the various powers and
faculties of his expansive mind? There
are many, very many causes for this. One
reason is, the discovery is of resent origin
People generally have .not had. sufficient
time to investigate it, and are not therefore
fully prepared to appreciate its intrinsic
mer'us. Again, many wish to be regarded
as men of scienue and literature. After oh
taininga slight knowledge of this science
J.'f.v set themselves up as practical Phrenol
ogists. In esanlistoS! heads, they are liable
to make mistakes. These mista!jf are un
justly attributed to some supposed defect in
the science, instead of the profound igno
rance of the pretended examiner. .
Men also possess a combative disposition.
They are ever ready to oppose any new the
ory, however true, useful, and beneficial to
mankind. This has been the case in al)
ages of the world. Harvey's system of the
circulation of the blood, was at first wholly
discarded, and his practice taken from him.
The astronomical discoveries of Gallileo
weie viewed in the same light To assert
that the sun remained nearly stationery, and
that the earth performed a revolution around
it once in three hundred and sixty-five days,
turning at the same time on its own axis
once in twenty-four hours, was, considered
the height of human folly and delusion.
Ncwton's.iheory of philosophy was, in like
manner, scornfully rejected. But now the
literary world has learned that those useful
and important discoveries, though long com
batted by the assembled Universe, are based
upon the broad principles of unerring truth
All intelligent physicians unitedly agree that
Harvey's system of the circulation of the
blood is substantially correct, that Gallileo's
discoveries are truths mathematically de
monstrated, and that .Newton s theory: was
hot the unhappy result of. airy speculations
So it ia with Phrenology. Unfortunately it
now looked upon with, utter .contempt
But the glorious era Is near at hand when it
will be regarded in a different light, when
it will, be hailed with universal joy all over
this enlightened land. . -

A correspondent of the NailohaVIn'teillk
gencer writing from Romney, Va.5, 'furnishes,
tho following account of the -remarkable
naiural curioalty existing In that region: ' '
It lies in ; the vicinity of North river, a
tributary of the capon or Cacapon, and is
surrounded with hills of .some eight hundred
feet in height, while its own, elevation is not
over' five hundred. It . is a common-place

discovered in other' sections of Hampshire
county, but none so extensive! To account
for this phenomenon upon Scientific princi
ples is out of my power, but I can see much
plausibility in the following remarks from
tho pen of C. B. Hnyden, bsq., as publish
ed in Silliman's Journal in 4843: j
"The solution, I conceive, is to be found
in the large and unusual collection of Tocksj
which from their porous homogeneous'tex
lure, are exirethely poor conductors of, hedt.
K)ne side 'ot the mountain 'consists ol a
massive wall, many hundred feet in thick
ness, and heaped up agftinst ibis, as on abut
ment, is a mass, of rocks containing several
thousand cubic feet. " As the mountain bus a
general direction from northeast,' to south
west, the talus heap containing tho ice has
a north west exposure. - lhe cavernous ,nt
ture of this heap would admit the free en
trance oF atmospheric waters, which during,
the winter would form ice in the interior of
the mass. ' The ice thud situated would be
protected from external heat by the surround
ing rocks, as ice in a reftigeraior 1b isolated
and protected from tho external temperature
by the non-conducting sides of the refrige'
rator. ine ice mountain only requires tor
the explanation of its phenomenon the ap
plication or the familiar pci nciple upon
which is constructed the common refiigora
tor, which temporarily effects what the ice
mountain permanently does a temperature
independent of external causes. This moun
tain is, in fact, a huge sandstone refrigera
tor, whsoe increased and unusual effects,
beyond those of the ordinary refrigerator,
are due to the increased collection.-of poor
conducting materials which form its sides.'
