THE STEAM ENGINE.
«'Against the breeze, against the tide
She steadier with upright keel."
The following eloquent passage is from the
western Souvenir.
"The rudest inhabitant of
forests»—the
man whose mind is the least of all imbued with
«relish for U>e picturesque—who would gaze
with vacant stare at the finest painting—listen
with-apathy to the softest melody, and turn with
indifference from a
mechanism, is struck with the sublime power
and self-moving majesty of a steam-boa^—lin

its rapid and almost magic course with silent ad
miration. The steam engine in five years has
enabled us to anticipate the state of things
in the ordinary course of events, it would hnve
required a century to have produced. Hie art
of printing scarcely surpassed it in its beneficial
consequences. In the old world, the places of
the greatest interest to the philosophic traveller
are ruins, and monuments, that speak u faded

CHINBSE GEOGRAPHY.
Till very lately the Chinese, in their maps of
the earth, set down the Celestial Empire in the
middle of a large square, and dotted round it
fe the other kingdoms of the world, supposed to
be 72 in number, assigning to tiie latter ridicu
lous or contemptuous names. One of these, for
example was Siao-gin que or the Kingdom of
Dwarfs, whose inhabitants they imagined to be
so »null as to be under the necessity of tying
themselves together in bunches, to prevent their

Viceroy of Canton, in a memorial to the Hmpe
the subject of the Portuguese embassy,
taya, 'We find very plainly that Europe is only
two little islands in the middle of the sea.' With
such ideas of other nations, it is not wonderful
that they should consider the embassies and pre
sents sent to them as murks of submission, and
batten to write down the donors in their maps,
as tributaries of the Chinese Empire.

W London Newspapers .—To give an idea of the
immense patronage and circulation of the Lon

Clement, the proprietor, paid the last year Aft y
three thousand five hundred pminds sterling, for
stamps and excise duties for the Chronicle and
his three weekly papers. For every paper is.
sued four ponce stamp duty is paid to govern

paper thus used. Every advertisement pays 3s.
fid. excise duty.
Chess .—The origin of this game—if it be law*
fu! to call it a game—is loot in remote antiquity.
The Philosopher Xerxes, the Grecian Prince
Palamedes, and the brothers Lydo and Tyrrheno,
have each in turn received the homage of inqui
the inventors; others ascribe the ho:
the Egyptians, and others to the Chinese. In
thr first book of the Odyssey, supposed to be
written a thousand yer.rs before the Christian
, there is a game mentioned, which was prob
ably chess. In China, the game is somewhat
di Itèrent from ours. A river separates the two
contending parties, and the King is entrenched
in a fort, where only he can move. The manda

Judge nail, in his "Letters from the West ,"
thus describes the passage of emigrants to
back country:—
"Each raft (on the Ohio) was eighty or ninety
feet long, with a small house on it, and on each
a stack of hay, round which several horses
and cows were feeding, while the ploughs, wag
on*, pigs, children, and poultry, carelessly dis
tribuUd, gave to the whole more the appear
ance of a permanent residence than of a caravan
of adventurers seeking a home. A respectable
looking old lady, with "spectacles on nose," was
seated on a chair at the d<
ins, employed in knitting; another female
the wash tub; the men were chewing their to
bacco; and the various family vocations seemed
to go on like clockwork. In this
people bring their own provisions, their raft
floats with the stream, and huncst Jonathan, sur
rounded with his scolding, grunting, squalling
and neighing dependents, floats to the point
proposed without leaving his own fire side."

The following anecdote of Mr. Randolph is
given in the New York Morning Courier, on the
authority of a correspondent at Washington:—
• While he was at a boarding school in Virginia,
be as well as the other «collars had frequent oc
oosion to complain of the butter, with which
they were supplied, and as is customary in such
establishments, the complaints received but lit
tle attention. Finding all remonstrances •_*"*
vailing, a combination was formed not to use
the butter, but to besmear the walls of the study
and corridor with it. Amongst the conspira
tors Randolph was preeminent, and succeeded
'

}'
in destroying more of die butter tbsy his fellow
students. The dominie soon observed tho ,n "
dications of their distaste of the gutter, and
hoping from hit voutb, to discover the sinner,
he called up to jitwdesk Master John, when the
following dialogue ensued : ,

SXXfK CULTURE.
To the Editor.
A few days since, I hnd the
pleasure to see in the "New England Farm-.
ei\" of February 13, the piece taken from
your paper, signed "An Agriculturist," on
the subject of the proper temperature in
which Silk Worms ought to be kept, and
other subjects. This paper gave me great
satisfaction, because it will promote the
cause of the Silk culture, which I deem high
ly important to the Farmers, and because
the sentiments contained in it, agree with
experience.
The opinion of Mr. Gideon Smith of Bal
tjmore, noticed by the writer, that Silk
Worms will thrive in any temperature, fi
at that of 90°, will I fear, do mischief.
My own experience is decidedly in favour
of moderate temperature in all stages of the
worjn; and it agrees with that of others, who
have attended to them upon a large scale.
Even when the worm* are hatching, the
heat of the apirtment in which they
kept,
commence at 64°

Interesting Case .—On Thursday evening,
a person culled at the louse of the High
Constable, accompanied by a deaf and dumb
lad, aud accused him of having attempted
to pass a $10 counterfeit bill. He also Inti
mated |a belief that his prisoner was not
deaf and dumb; and only pretended to be so
that he might the more readily impose
upon the community. The High Constable,
on examining the bill pronounced it to be
genuine, but stated that unfortunately it was
the relic of a Broken Bank. This decision
entirely upset the doctrine of forgery, but
did not disprove the fraudulent Intention.
Mr. Hayes therefore, after ascertaining
that the youth was in reality deaf and dumb,
ordered him to appear at the Police Office
the next morning. At the appointed time
he came before the Magistrate, and so fully
exculpated himself, that he left the Office,
with the respect and good opinion of all pre
sent. But not content with the explanation
he had given he in a short time despatched
the following letter, which is here inserted

I presumed it was good, and therefore put it
into my pocket.—I had got it before I left
home. As I was going somewhere to dis

support of the indigent deaf and dumb,
I thought quickly that J would be glad to
converse with my aunt who lives at No. 54

I recollected quickly that I must buy the

to the store to get it, and I touk teri dollars
put of my pocket and gave them to a hatter,
who received them—but t he did not under
stand this bill that was of a broken bsuk,
and he carried it to the other gentleman
who took it. He said it
was sorry. Then the hatter, Mr. Harrison,
came to me; and he suspected that I was a
rogue, and therefore he brought me to tell
Mr. Hays about
questions. I gave some answers to them,
nameh : David H. Cole. My term of four
and five months has expired at school,
lived with Mr. Loofborrow. I was born
in Red Hook, Dutchess. N. Y., and my pa
rents live in Saugerties, Ulster Co. now. I
told Mr. Hays, that I did not know whether
the bill was good or not. I suppose that Mr.
Harrison knew that I was ignorant of this
bill yet he endeavoured to bring
Hays' house for the purpose of giving him
a reward. If I had known that it was bad,
I would have told the pupil it wns broken—
but I know that Mr. Harrison is not reasona

questions to me. 1 have endeavoured to
