Ltm f Frc-zia; W,:l:rfha!ifvl Ajud iwnl. There an: many well-known laws of matter, wh'n h have the appearance of bein-j di vinely provided for the belief t of man. Thus, by a very peculiar law, contra: v. as it were, to a general law, the rivers and fountains in our climate are pri.vei.ie l from freezing to any very great dej-.'.-i. The effect of heat upon bodies is to expand, and cold to contract them. If this Saw was constant in its operations, iu respect to water, ice would commence to form at the bottom of lakes, rivers, and brooks, then they would rnpi'.ly frecr.e upwards and destroy every living thinr therein. This is provi led against hy a peculiar law. The water of our rivers, and hikes, above 10 degrees Fahr. when expos ed to a greater degree of cold, co.ls rapidly t it-; surface, w hich surface wafer is condensed and sinks. This process of surface cooling and 'Sinking goes eni rapidly until the whole water has been cooled 40, which is S degrees above fee'.ia pv.nl. Below this temperature the chilled surface of the water, instead of con densing into less bulk, actually expands (be comes lighter) and. remains at the. surface, and the cold is thus very imperfectly propagated downwards. The surface in tluj end freezes, and the ice may thicken, but at the depth of a few feet bchnv tlie tetnper.Uure is not under 40 which is indeed high when compared with that which we frequently experience iu our atmos phere during winter. If water, in cooling lie low 40, obeyed the same law which it does in cooling to that point, our rivers, streams, and lakes, would become masses of ice, upon which our warm summers would make' but little im pression, and the cheerful climate which we now enjoy would be less comfortable than the frozen regions of the' poles. Upon such deli cate and beautiful adjustments do the order mid harmony of tho Universe depend. Scientific American.

We have already announced the escape and return of Mrs. Jane Wilson, of Texas, to Santa Fe, who had been ta.en captive by the tamanchc Indians, and subjected to the most extraordinary cruelties. The affair has very justly excited the greatest . ,. . . ' J . . . j mdignat.on in 'Now Mexico aguinat tue Ia- dians. From Mrs. Wilson's narrative, it appears that she is but 17 years of age. About a year a 'o she was married to a young farmer in 'tVx- i as, and in April they joined a party of fifty two I emigrants, bound lm- California. They were attacked by Indians and the party was compel led to return to Texas; but Mr. and Mrs. Wil son remained at El Paso, where their horses being stolen, they were co npelled also to give up the plan of going to California and set out j partial and unprejudiced yielded their judg ou their return to Texas i.i July. L August, incut at once, tu what seemed almost superhu Mr Wilson and his fttjier ii.-il into the hands of man reasoning, h'u oipjntn's were facd to Indians and were murdered.

A Mexican, who was with yirs. Wilson, was brutally murdered and sca'ped before her eyes, and she and her two brothers-in-law, lacs of 12 and 1 0 years, te seised, bcand, n-td - cairicd - cSV ivi.h toe entire property of the party. The Indians,with their captives, proceeded in a Northwest direction, each being appropriated as the property of one or other of the chiefs. lhey were stripped ot neariy all their clothing. and otherwise brutally treated. Mrs Wilson, although expecting soon to become a mother, was subjected to every conceivable cruelty nud indignity; beaten and bruised; exposed to fati gues of all ki ds; her llesh lacerated by lariats and in whips, or by the loads of wood she was obliged to carry on her bare back; compelled to the W'ork of men; or punished for her ability by being stoned knocked down and trampled on; almost entirely deprived of food aud all this lasted for twenty-five days. At this time, she was sent in advance in the morning as usual, when she determined to attempt an escape, which she succeeded in accomplishing by se creting herself iu some bushes till the Indians had passed. Fur twelve cays she wandered through this Indian country sudsisting iipou berries, when she fortunately fell in with some New Mexican traders, who furnished her with some men's clothing and a blanket. In consequence of their meeting with a Camanche, they had to leave her behind, np.'l 'sl.e narrowly escaped a second cnpUijv, But, by the siou."'!'! aid of one of the traders, a Pueblo Iud.an, she wa3 enabled, after hiding herself for eight days, to escape. At the expiration of this time she was rescued by the traders, furnished with a horse, and brought to the town of Pecos, New Mexico, w here Major v'arleton and others, of the army, took care of her and enabled her to proceed to Santa Fe. This is but an outline of a terrible story, the counterpart of which, in all except the escape, are said to be frequent. A letter from Santa Fe says that the white captives among the Catneauches are as numerous as the Indians theu.seb cs. The same letter mentions tho es-j capeofa vu.r Mexican wpmau who returns, ! i tor :i i':ir tiM-iMi o ca itiviiv. exneetmi' to iivny, beeome the mother of an infant whose father is a wild Indian. The CamaiTchcs practice cruci fy in its utmost refiir.cinent towards their cap tives. Children are trained to be more savage than they arc themselves, and women lire sub ject to outrages too horrible to be mentioned. The Saute Fe Gazette says: "The two broth ers ed'Mrs. Wilson are yet in captivity, and un less soon reclaimed, will imbibe a taste for the wild life of the Indian, and be forever lost. There are many hundreds, and we may venture to say, thousands of captives among tue Indians of New Mexico, principally women and chil dren; the former are forced to become slaves of the men, and the latter are trained for warri ors." .. When Gov. Merritweher c:mc out, he was fortunate enough to rescue two Mexican "iris from near Cainanehes erne sixteen and the other e ighteen years of age. They had ieen captured from near Chihuahua, one three "years and the other ten months before. Thoy were to the Gov.rnor of that State, who acknowl edged the conduct of the Governor of New Mexi co iu very handsome terms. They said there were a large number of Mexican women in cap tivity, and they saw one American women, with a small child; that an Indian one day, when thoy were traveling on horseback, took the child from its mother, threw it up into the air, and as it came down caught it on his spear, to" mbtniisheft, sary to extlfmwm tfeg wfeolfi trib? t?f' brutal savai'fs'.- The was str'Ucii withi man frtt, hal teeri Behtft3ii ment" without resisuc' t, . and that others rode up at full gallop, tooK H picieu m uom ii i nueu je.ua. j i.c ..-... i- i0oiisn ana uiunai., uk ,c cj.w or. their spars, and so passed it around among tion of the company is jrofKl.

True, his rnnown while living was not dazzling, as from the glow of military achievments, nor sudden growth. He did not fix the popular gaze and admiration by a single or a few dashing and successful efforts on occfc-sions of rcut excitement, as sometimes happeis. His fame was slowly woe. sliirhtlv debtor to fortunate conjunctions or circumstan ces, but acquiring strength and solidity by a succession of well directed efforts,' running ; through a period of forty years.

Su:b. i is r.ft can never die to Ins co coiuitn ; and the fame of Daniel Webster will continue to grow and expand with the growth and expansion of the North American Republic. It is fortunate that the grounds upon which the anticipation is in dulged, that a just measure of fame and influ ence will be yielded to such s character, by a distant posterity, arc not left to uncertain memo- ry or ague tradition. Daniel Webster stib speaks to the present, as he will to future gene rations, in the classic pagc3 of his printed works. His select speeches and orations, mod e's as they are of forensic and parliamentary eloquence, which may ehallangc comparison with the most celebrated of. ancient or modern limes aud abounding, us they do, with just and uoUo sentiments, will, in time, become text books in our Colleges and Universities.

Ao i experience of souse fifteen years with the craft, has od'ered inmimenible opportunities to find . : ; . them out, and study in a measure their "natu ral history." Printers are, to a greater extent than any other class of prffaxu.ucl men, mi gratory. The printing office, of itself, being a jiterary Institute,few can abide or labor long in it without getting somewhat enlightened upon the historical, scientific and general intelligence of the day, and about as soon as thu appren tice gets into his freedom suit, or his head cramed with knowledge of the craft, his ambi tion tends to go out into the "wide, wide world," and see the works of art and nature he has read, and enabled others to read about. Few seem bent on. setting down to make a fortune, and the expense of profes.siot.al fit out being a mere song, cr rather n piece of Iras. rule, w hich serves as a sort of cabalistic aitn to tbd brotherhood scattered over creation, a clean dickey, light heart, and equally hefted pocket bogk. the printer rocs on his way of exrdora- tion and adventure. Posted tip in "price cur rents, he can talk business with the merchant or planter; versed in general statistics of the nation, he can hold Lis own with your country politician, and for w-hmn, if he takes a notion, he can set down in a fluurisiiig settlement, start a paper, rcpenish his purs and wnrdrobr, write and set up patriotic leaders and irresistible puffs, w hich sends his patron to Congress or the Leg islature. He has long been accustomed to "tat tle' "squibs,'' "poetic gems," 'ihe ladies de partment," &e. and proves quite at home in conversational circles, where he can illuminate old ladies, the girls and children, equal to a pedagogue, Hoo l"s works, Baron Munchausen or Robinson Crusoe. He can talk horse or honored catt'c, all over the fields of agriculture. He has had many, cases in his time to attend to, such as law re ports, and wonderful curse, and hence is some thing versed in law and phyic. Having set up and proved astronomical tables, he knows some thing, also, about the starry heavens, wafers and winds. Anil, indeed, not to be too prolir, the printer, if a thorough ones a man cf science as well as ait, and backed by his collegiate education, his views expanded by travel, and himself made practical by the vie'issitudes of a miscellaneous and peregrinating life, he is often a living wonder, aud most always a whole his tory of human nature under a hat! In this office there are some twenty printers engaged look at them! In age3 ranging from twenty to forty; in size and complexion, from the ordinary stout (we never knew a fat printer,) to some that might crawl through a greased flute; some as white as Circassians, and others brown or rosy your "Georgia cracker' w Pennsylvania, publican. Some bearded like' the Pard, others smooth faced as the Greek Slave.
