of disor(ler or predisposition to dis
case in the grape.
The vine growers in this country
tell us that a rocky and pebbly soil
is best adapted to the culture of the
vitne. This notion had its origin in
their ignorance of' the agencies that
retard the healthful developineit of
the grape. If the ground be hilly,
it matters iot whether it be rocky
and pebbly, or not; because, forsooth
that pebbles and rocks are always
found in mountainous regions, it does
not follow that they are the cause of
the better growth of the grape, far
froi it. It is the hilly land that
makes the grape vine florish.
The wine of which .wlenus was
the goA, and which-is reniered still
more celebrated or immortal by the
oIdes of ANACJIA EON, was made in the
mountainous regions of Greece ; awil
if a retrospective view he taken of
the entire face of this colossal (lobe,
it will be seen that wine nfever was
yet made of a good qluality', on leeel
land. Whe C r.m: nARA wanted a

and this Fact may give rise to sonie
astonishment to those who have failed
after having exerted all the skill and
experience of the choicest wine bib
bers of France and Germany. If so,
let them pause and consider that it
is not owing to any particular mode
of culture, that they succeed, but
only requires hilly land, or some con
trivance that -vill keep the air cool at
the tine that the grapes are begin
ning to grow.
Now if this theory be correct,
namiely : That the intense heat, in
level countries, be the cause of the
failure of the grape crop, will not the
shading of the vineyard with broad
leaf trees, so as to aflord an ample
shade, serve as an efficient agency,
in preventing green grapes from
shedding off tle vine or rotting ?

TmE P1llENOMENA oF SLEEP.- Dr.

curious facts and speculations. The
following facts arc given in relation
to sleep, which is described to be.the
