A young correspondent inquires if
tho opinion is correct that forests in
crease the fall of rain, and whether
more rain comes down iu wooden than
cleared regions of tho country. In an
swer; we may state that we havo al
ways held the opinion that trees at tho
surface of the earth can not sensibly af
fect the clouds in their onward march
miles above, from which the rain is
Pouring; and that there is no practica
ble dillerence between the tops of for
est trees, and from the foliage of acorn
held or of a meadow to the high clouds
above. Hoth would operate, if at all,
in the same way. The dillereiice iu
distance between trees lift v feet l,!.ri,
and corn eight feet high, to clouds two
miles high, would not bo one two-hundredth
part, and one would be as like
ly to draw water down, if nt all. from
two miles us the ollmr. But fu.Oii .)!-
provo the theory. Alanv looso obser
vations are quoted to sustain it- I, of

A Crochet in" Mouse.
Of nil the singular instances reported
of human intelligence developed in ani
mals, one of the most peculiar exists in
the family of JMr. Mahlon 0. Chock
with, residing on Penn avenue, in this
citf. The wonderful little animal is a
common house mouse and the pet of
Miss Lizzie, Mr. Choekwith's youngest
daughter. It was caught iu lUrnp'lnst
spring, and when about to be drowned
in a pail of water was rescued by Miss
Lizzie, for whom it, soon formed a
strong attachment. It always accom
panies her ii lu nit the house, and makes
its bed in her work basket. Miss Liz
zie is very fund of crocheting, and tho
mouse, which she has named "Littlo
Hilly," would sit, on the table watchiii"
her by the .hour, apparently deeply iu"
tercstcd. On several occasions when
