Vesper bells from tower are ringing And the sems their ayes are singing ; 'Dimly now the trees are waring, In the lake their branches laying ; .Lily belles their leaves are closing, Every breath of air reposing; ?Looder now o'er vale and lea, Swells the thrilling Ave Marie. lMaidens in their leafy bowers, ,Culling there the sunset flowers; MMatrons in their quiet homes, Catch the burthen of those tones; .Cbildren at the cottage doors, Laborers crossing now the moors, 'Wives with int'nts on the knee, 'Echo now that Are Marie. Maights returning from the war, Miistrels at the palace door; Lever at the crement kneeling, MHers the s t's solemn pealing Hears the ! their echoes waking, Evening's trembling silence breaking : .ests he from the tale a e tells, To ehey those welper bells. While the anthems softly steal, Sounding hill-sides catch the peal ; O'er the waters, dark and blue, ~Riq the vespers oud and true ; Priests, with £owspg robes and stoles, Praying for depurted souls, Cease their beads, while louder swell Those sweet sounds, from vesper bell. So may all of mosal ace Turn to heaven a grtetul flce ; When the toil oflife is o'er, When we rest to toil no more, When lifo'sunm in peace goes down, In death's sunset soft and brown ; As the heavenly churous swells, Bless we then life's vesper bells.

'nant water. It soon reached Franklin, nine teen miles south of Nashville, then Pulaski, thir .ty miles soub of Columbia, where it was ter. risc; thence to Shelbyville, east of Columbia forty live miles, where it was worse than at any other place n T'Ientessee; two miles north of Columbia, in the country it was very bad-near ly half of the negroes and whites died on some plantations. In lact, it was all over the suao rounding cunmtry. Not a case originated in town. The system of lising continued through out the sunmmer and tall, and it was found that the usual fall levers were very light, so much so that the custom of liming has been strictly a.bered to annually, ever since, and, from a sickly town, it is now one of the healthiest. R ARanA.lB DuscoVERY. Baron Reicheubuch, of Vienus, has recently ppblished a work entitled"Researches Magnet. ism and certain other allied subjects," from Iwhich it appears that be has discovered a new .imponderable body, nor hitherto know, appar ently allied to magnuetism"or electricity, and sometimes, though not always, associated with it, as caloric is with light in the ray of the sun. By means of this body he produces effects aim. itar to those produced by what is called "Ani. qual Mlagnetism;" thus cond.nuing by actual ,experience in the chemical laboratory, and by (philosophical induction, the results previously (arrived at in adiferent way by Mesmer and hass followers. And his mind having never turned, to the iuvestigatioa of Animal Magnetism, he was upprejudaced and unprMap r the oon. clusiou to which his experiments led hinm. Riechenbach is no fanciful charleatan or youthful ethusiasut, but is known thrlbout ounrupe and America as a chemist and phtloo-w pher eowed judgment an accue analysis who Ihas grown gray in scientic reeasehes, and whe ei, Oar ,trrtb tenton and co. m-md respect He became dignised sear, ly twesat yeah age by his taborious research. es in wood and cotl tor, and for his discovery e.e e puam epeme,pi.s r and other re. aakanbl e s s ,a d has ac conaimnedto and his rpltie other discover es in or. danisl A his investigations ave au been cashed to chuisutry, yem his Sdepument of science to which his labors Ihave bees chiey devted for moas than twenty nrs; od it is certainly that departure which, y its rigid dfscipline of the reasoning and ag powers, moat eectully prepares the mind tfr the investigatigion tand discovery of mat. ural truth, whether connected with animate or inanimate bodies. Mathematics strengthe the reasoning powers and cultivate thin bstis of I advancing to true cuclusions fro admitted promises. But in Mathematics the mind is not eabarrassed, as in chemical and physiological1 investigatioos, by the Irequent occurrence of I posuspecied facts demaning new trains of ea. I ag. This is a difculty comwon to chem. a isiry and pysiology, and the operations of the laboratory train the mpind for overcoming it in the one case as well as in the other. For here every error, whether of act or deduction, arrests the progress ofthe operator, and compels him to retrace his steps and search iato the source uthe error. A mind of onguine temperamet and illogical cast, which jumps at conclusipas, - overlosaw half the capsiderations which ltar t upon ahe am, may d very erroneous jan irensees ia hyisilogy which will strl be sat. isfectory thanadlend oothers o"f similar tind oI si sodhb wof tpught . bt in chs w r cal irsligations he can make little prograer r is hWit je ofs tl is oarsected; aud MiS I m"idig wI "h e esraim biu c to as w entered. subject of these remarks, and edited by Professor nguished lecturer of Edinburgh, of a popular work on chemisry, who repeated the experiments and veri bed the catnap of Reicheeabch. The distin. guished Deelius, it is stated, was also, at the Itime of his camented death, p-eparing for publi. calion a paper coalacatory of Reic hembach's ý d__c-veries. N. iastrued has as yet bslt found which adiate the presou of the newly discover. ipeuadsrable body, or dicate its free, as the does that of eleetrieity. Its prs. ee has hthertto been indicated only by the lsnses of ceptain impressible persons, generally sensitive ales abut some tames also, roh et mea. The acuhr, is has esperiagents with e, teak sgretm pain to gtard against al pea. uibeliy Ediosspi frst want of eador in his mmeots or fioe the i aeCeee of iuagination oa their qind. He selected persona of known egity and veracity, as well as iatelligence some of them among the Brst sasers of Vaenne; adhe repeated his eperinments so oten, i, each varsss cirwcnm ee a. with .che !pesmtoumsas s to preolude the poisibilily of ie Samad shat hues, diiesly colored maryimeuinj;'mlwum by the unseas tire to rice from the two rpoes of a magnet in a dark room. Upon placing the rtngnes bekre a concave mirror, the subject not being aware ofe its use, the flamts were seen in the focal ponate 'of the mirror, and flickered when blown upoa. . Magnets drawn along the body gave rise to an raura, warm or cool, as the different poles were I used. The influence could be conveyed by .wires. It imparts a pungent taste to water, as Mesmer affirmed he did with the bands and the a will. No attempt to deceive the subjects pre-i t vented them from distinguisLing this water. The hands were also slightly attracted by the: ,!magnet. Electricity and galvanism, when con J ducted from a distance, produced the same s. - suits. Crystalapif large, isolated, and of regular jshape, emitted the light in the dark, andcaused , the aura when drawn near the body. Other .bodies exposed to the sun's rays for some time . produce the same efects. The body or power * was found to be developed by .e cbedoil ac ..:ion which occur in various solutions; ali it is m developed largely in the human system dewing, y! the processes of sespiration and digestion, caus if ing an abundant supply of it in the human lody. Thus the author accounts for the effects pos. e ed to have been produced by Plrkins' "l'talic Tractors," whica were, in former years, so pop. sular a remedy in Rheumatism and other painful t'afflections. Dr. Haygrath, as he supposed, tt proved that the effect was produced merely by Sthe imagination, because when he drew wood. y en "tractors,' shaped and painted to resemble a the'metallic tractors, over the libs of the patjents. he found that he could cure rheumatism as well as Parkins. But Reichenbach has discovered that it was neither the metalic and wooden trac. tors, nor the imagination, but the human hand t that produced the effects. i In some of his subjects he produced insensi. . bilhty, somnambulism and convulsions. In many r. ot the experiments his subjects were confined in d in a dark stairway, and the influence conducted btIo them by a wire passing through the ke hole, . thich was perfectly closed ; and althouli they t could not see the operator nor know where he .lwas, or how employed, yet he produced the of ;I fects when he chose, in the same way as when they saw him. t' These facts I collect from a notice of the work, in the Philadelphia North American, and cop. di ied into the National Intelligencer ofDeceber 7.
