HOME AFFECTIONS,—The heart H»§ memories that cannot die. The rough rubs of the woild cannot obliterate them. They are memories of home, early home. There is a magic in the very sound. There is the old tree under which the light-hearted boy swung many a summer day there the house in which he keew a parent's love and found a parent's protec tion nay, there is the room in which he romped with brother or sister, long since, alas laid in the yard in which he must soon be gathered. Overshadowed by yon old church, whither, with ajoyous troop like himself, he has often followed his parents to worship and hear the »od old man who gave him to God in baptism. Why even the very school-house, associa ted in youthful days with thought of ler tile and tasks, now comes back to bring pleasant remembrances of many an occa sion that called forth some generous ex hibition of the noblest traits of human na ture. There he learned to feel some of his best emotions. There, perchance, he saw the being who, by her love and tenderness in after life has made a home for himself, happier even than that which childhood knew. There are certain fee lings of humanity, and those too among the best, that can find an appropriate place for their exercise only by one's fireside. There is a socredness in the privacy of that spot, which it were a species of des ecration to violate He who seeks won tonly to invade it, is neither more nor less than a villain and hence there exist no stronger test of the debasement of morals in a community than the disposition to tolerste, in any mode, the man who dis regards the sanctities of private life. In the turmoil of the world, let there be at least one spot where the poor man may find affection that is disinterested, where he may indulge a confidence that is aot likely to be abused. A SIKOUI.AU VEGETABLE.—A friend writes us from Hiker's island as follows An amateur fisherman yesterday caught off this island a fine large lobster, having one claw firmly around the end of what at first appeared a solid cluster of small oysters, but upon examination they were found to encircle a bottle hermetically corked, and filled with a liquid which taste like very old Monongahela whiskey. It is the opinion of all who have seen the bottle that it could not have been in the water less than fifteen years." The following medicine will not be very bad to take, nor will there be much danger in the use of it, especially if the directions are followed 'None genuine 'except those that grow *j» the ground "THE IRISH VEGETABLE PILLS.—We •et'it stated, and having no doubt of the trtiih of the statement, hasten to l:»y it before our readers, that good Irish pota toes make the most valuable vegetable pills at present known. This medicine is admirable in its effects—working kind ly with the system, and being entirely digestible. They should be prepared by roasting till they become 'mealy,' butter and salt then to be added in proper pro portions, or, they may be taken mashed, hot, with plenty of juice of a roasted tur key, or any other palatable gravy that •will make them easy to swallow, The patient must exercise his own judgement as to the proper quantity to be taken as a general rule, however, three times a day will not be too often—exercise in the open air, after each dose, will be found highly beneficial." TRANSLATED TBOM THE OKI!MAS Of SEBEH. Every flower that I see around me with ers and dies and yet me. me only, do they always eall the withering, the easily perishing rose. Unthoughtful me do not I make my short existence agreeable e nough to you Do I not, even by my death, prepare for you a monumental leg acy of sweet odors, conserves and oint ments full of refreshment and comfort? And yet I always hear them sighing and saying, "Alas the withering, the quickly falling rose!' So did the Queen of'the Flowers lament upon her throne, perhaps already in the first perception of her own declining beau ty. A maiden standing before her, heard her complaint, and said, Be not angry with us, sweet little one! call not ingratitude that which is indeed a higher love, the wish of a more delicate affection. All oth er blossoms we see dying, and we receive their doom as the fate of the flowers, but with thee, their Queen, we would have it otherwise, and we deem thee worthy of immortality. Thou seest us disappointed in our wish Leave us, then, the lament with which we bewail ourselves for thee All the beauty, youth and joy of our lives, do we liken unto thee, and when like thee, they fade away, we sing and say always, "Alas! the withering, the easily-perishing rose KRUMMACIIER. tay in his blood, aaifr Adam stood beside the corpse and wept, the cher ub of Paradise drew near to the father of mankind, and stood in silence, attd his brow was thoughtful. But Adam lifted up his voice and spofce "Is that an image of the race that shall descend from me And shall a brother's blood, shed by a brother's hand, ever stain the earth again The chfcrub answered, Th on say est it." ,, "Alas with what name then will they name the horrid deed "War with a tear in his eye, replied the heavenly. Then shuddered the father 01 mankind, and groaning, said, "Ah, why must the noble and the righteous thus, by the hand of the unrighteous, fall But the cherub was silent. And Adam continued his lament, and said, "What now remaineth to mo in my misery, upon the blood-stained earth The glance to heaven replied IhfJ cherub, and then he vanished. But Adam stood until the sun was set. And when the stars were risen, he opened his arms towards Orion ant' the Wain, and exclaimed, "O ye shining watchers at the gates of heaven, whither wander ye so si lently Oh permit a mortal to hear the sound of your voices, and speak to me of the land which lies beyond you, and of Abel the beloved!" Then the stillness became yet per around him, and Adam fell upon his face and worshipped. And he heard in his heart a low voice, "Behold thy son Abel liveth The# went the comforter away, and his soul was still and full of sadness. ION. KINDNESS BETTER THAN Fonc*.-*-The following anecdote, which was related by Dr. C'ooly, at a Common School Conven tion in Hampden county, strikingly illus trates the force of the principle of kind ness. "Many years ago a man went into a district to keep school, and before he had been there a fortnight, many persons came to see him, and kindly told him that there was one bad boy in the school whom it was necessary to whip every day lead ing him to infer such was the custom of the school, and that the inference of injus tice towards the boy be always drawn, whenever he should suffer.—The teacher saw the affair in a different light. He treat ed the boy with signal kindness and at tention. At first this novel course seem ed to bewilder him —he could not divine his meaning. But when the persevering kindness of the teacher begot a kindred sentiment of kindness in the pupil, his ve ry nature seemed to change—old impulses died. A new creation of motives supplied their place. Never was there a more dil igent, obedient, and successful pupil and now. said the reverend gentleman, in con cluding his narrative, that boy is the Chief Justice of a neighboring State." The re lator of this story was himself the actor, though he modestly kept back the fact. If the Roman's justly bestowed a civic crown upon a soldier who had saved the life of a fellow soldier, in battle, what hon ors are too great for a teacher who has thus rescued a child from ruin AGRICULTTRE.—He who has dominion over an acre and rescues it from barren ness, and cover it with a smilintr harvest, has more virtuous self applause then the conquerer of large territories waste and desolate. The culture of the earth servors of filial affection. It is our bounteous mother, it affords us nourishment, and shelter and shade—fertile streams—fra grant flowers and refreshing fruit, we should love it for the sake of theJiving— for the sake of the dead. A beautiful plane, or a luxurant vine' may suggest to a poetical mind the spirit of departed beau ty putting again from the earth where its form was innrned. AN APOLOGY.-—A well dressed young gentleman at a ball, in whisking about the room, run his head against a youno lady. He began to apoligise. "Not a word, sir," cried she, "it is not hard enough to hurt any body." ago, the Castle-HuntleV East-Indiaman was on her voyage, when a seaman named Thompson fell overboard. In an instant his comrades were on the alert, and, as ope means of safely, they scattered hen coops and spars on the waves, until the ship could be brought round or hove to. As this operation required some little time, the unfortunate man got to the windward, and at last got hold of the rudder, and in this way kept his head above water. His messmates in the meantime were busy searching for him on the side of the vessel from which he fell no one thought of look ing to the windward, and as it wiJ^mpos sible to hear his cries amidst th*oar o the waters and the whistling of the^reeze, they gave him up as lost. The half ex hausted tar then managed to clamber up the rudder, and creeping in by a port-hole, to ensconce himself in the gun-room but his cries of distress were not heard, as the gun-room is under water. He, however, found plenty of grog aiid biscuit, and with this remained very quiet for a day and a half. A calm then ei.sued, and the poor fellow crept cautiously out ot his prison house, descended the rudder, entered the water, and went swimming alongside, puff ing and blowing, and exclaiming as well as his affected breathlessuess would per mit. 'Ship a-hoy shipa-hoy!* The seamen could hardly credit their senses. 'Mercy on us,' they exclaimed, 'that's Jack Thompson himself!' •Ay, to-be-sure,' replied he, 'and a pret* ty set of lubbers you are, to leave a fellow in the lurch I'm three parts murdered al ready, starving of hunger, and tired to death and had it not been for this calm, I should never come up with you.' When Jack was pulled on board, vari ous questions were put to him but he humored the joke and kept his secret to himself. The captain of the vessel, soon after his arrival at Madras, dined with some friends, one of whom boasted great ly of the powers of a negro swimmer.-— Capt. Sinclair, recollecting the story of I hompson having lived a day and a half in water, backed his seaman against the man of color. The day of trial came and with it a great crowd, Both parties hav ing stripped, Thompson fastened a bag round his shoulders, which, as every one remarked, was filled with something. Blackie looked quere, and immediately in quired 'What you do wid dat V 'I)o with it,' replied he, 'you know we are bound on a long cruise, and although I can swim, I can't starve for a whole week, and must therefore carry provisions with me since for the sake ot being light I have rather pinched myself, and cannot therefore promise you a single biscuit.' 'Swim a week said blackie, 'and mess in de wave den me nod swim wid you— pau be debil, nod man—you sik me and in short remained so deaf to entreaty, and withal, appeared so frightened, thai Cap tain Sinclair gained his wager. I HAVE NO TIME LEFT FOR STUDY.-The idea about the want of time is a mere phan tom. Franklin found time in the midst of all his labors, to drive into the hidden re ccsscs of philosophy, and to explore the untrodden path of science. The great Frederick, with an empire at his direction, in the midst of war, on the eve of battles which were to decide the fate of his king dom, fonnd time to revel in all the charms of philosophy and intellectual pleasure. Bonaparte, with all Europe at his dispo sal, with kings in his antiehamber beg ging for vacant thrones, with thousands of men whose destinies were suspended on the brittle thread of his arbitrary plea sure, had time to converse with books. Cffsar, when he had curbed the spirit of the lvonr.n people, and was thronged with visiters from the remotest kingdom, found time for intellectual cultivation. Every man has time, if he be careful to improve and if he does improve as well as he might, he can reap a three fold reward. Let mechanics then make use of the hours at their disposal, if they want to obtain a proper influence in society. They are the life blood of the hands, the desti nies of the republic and they are numer ous, respectable, and powerful and they have only to be educated half as well as oilier profession, to make law3 for the Hation. Every man has time to study. If far mers and mechanics, yes, and merchants too, would devote one half of the time at their disposal to study, they would reap a rich reward. Let them betake them selves to industry, and devote more of their time to study and the acquisition of useful knowledge, and not so much to un profitable amusement. There are very few, who cannot daily spend two hours for mental cultivation. If they would do even this, how much more extensive would be their information, and how much greater their influence in society. In ad ditioL to this peculiar advantage, we wcAld not then be necessarily compelled to Ail none but professional men to sit in'he councils of the nation we would occa sionally have a farmer or mechanic, &c., who would render us efficient service. FALL OF MANNA.—Despatches from the Turkish America, received at Con stantinople, state that a copious fall of manna took place at Aleppo and its neighborhood on the 3d of May. The manna, which is in fact a tastless seed, that becomes white like flour after being kept a while, fell to the depth of two in ches. Samples of it were to be chemical ly analyzed at Constantinople. What adds to the singularity of the circumstance is, that a great dearth was prevailing at the time. Eg,—.Did yritt ever know of a man whose happiness was promoted by becom ing 'suddenly rich?'—-Few can properly enjoy wealth, who have not toiled in some honorable pursuit for its acquisition. Ye, doating parents! who sacrifice your comfort in this world, and jeopardize your happiness in the next!—judge for your selves from the specimens yoa see around you, whether the happinea%* dren would not have be* ted enriching their their pockets. Allow me to say a Word to the merchants of our country on another subject. The time is come, when they are particularly called to take yet more generous views of their voca tion, and to give commerce a universality as yet unknown. I refer to the juster principles which are gaining ground on the subject of free trade, and to the growing disposition of nations to promote it. Free trade! this is the plain duty and plain interest of the human race. To level all harriers to free exchange to cut up the system of restriction, root and branch to open every port on earth to every product this is the office of enlightened humanity— To this a free nation should especially pledge itself. Freedom of the seas freedom of har bors, and intercourse of nations, free as the winds this is not adreatn of philanthropists. We are tending towards it. and let us hasten it. Under a wiser and more Christian civili zation, we shall look back to our present re strictions, as wo do on the swadling bands by which, in darker times, the human body was compressed."

Bloomington, Nov. 13,1840. am i:liicap TTouknal of SCIENCE AND ARTS, CONDUCTED BV PROF. B. SILLIMAN & B. SILLIMAN, JR, O i K O 1 1 o THE r.. Editors of this Journal, wish to call pulv lic attention to the fact that they will hereaf ter, on the conditions stated below, frank the Noe.to all of their subscribers who receive the work direct ly from them by mail. Their object in making this offer, is to place those persons who are so situated that they cannot take the work through an agent, and therefore lice of charge of transportation, on the same footing in this respect with city Hubsciilier?. Subscribers by mail have heretofore paid from $1 to 51.3? per annum for postage, which has been 3 suf ficient consideration to induce many to decline taking the work. Now that this objection is removed, upon the simple condition of punctual remittances, the Editors confidently hope that the number of their mail subscribers will be much increased and they make no apology to their present supporters and con tributors, for asking their assistance in aiding than to sustain this experiment, by making this notice more public, and by inducing their friends to sul scribe. Experience has proved that the mail is hj-Sar the best means of conveyance to distant subscribers, the most sure and most speedy and all attempts to es tablish agencies at a distance, and away from the great lines of transportation have utterly failed—de lay and dissatisfaction and often abandonment of the work being the result. The American Journal of Scicnce and Arts is published at New Haven, Connecticut. Each num ber contains at least 200 pages, closely and hand somely printed on good paper, and fully illustrated bv engravings. "The subscription is $6 in advance, by mail. The extra dollar beyond the usual price of the literary quarterlies is indispensable, on ac count of a more limited patronage, and the great expense of engravings. Remittances should be made if possible in Eastern money, but if that cannot be obtained, the best hills which can be had may be substituted, and no dis count will be charged upon them. Subscribers will remember the regulation of the Post Office Department, by which Postmasters are authorized to remit payments for periodicals free of postage, if the letter containing the remittance i« written by themselves. All letters and remittances directed to the Editors of the American Journal of Scicnce and Arts, New HN ven, Ct., will receive prompt attention. N. B.—Subscribers who wish to avail themselves of the free postage, must see that their accounts are not in arrears when such is the fact the Editor* cannot pay the postage. rrj= Advertisements are inserted on the customaiT rates, and the European circulation of the work ret ders it a desirable vehicle for the advertisements American publishers the usual publication day the last of every quarter.
