From the 4'.h until tjie 20th inst., some hun

consternation. They are so overcome with fear,
that none will venture to sleep in building cov

with tents, under which men and women shel

Tha present winter is conceded to be
'most severe experienced in this country since
it has been populated by American. During
ihe last fortnight it has been raining and snow
ing continually in the mountains and volley,
and we are daily in receipt of account of dis
tress and suffering in all part of the State.

We copy the following from the tame news
Mr. Moodey states that no less than 700 mi
inert on Churn creek, m the vicinity of hit
.ranch, were compelled to subsist til day on
acorns, being entirely destitute of provisions,
'and unable to procure them in consequence of
jthe high water.
At Downie'i ranch on the north side of Cow
creek, twelve persons were cooped up in a room
'seven by nine, for eight days, during which
'time they were obliged to subsist on one scanty
meal of beans per diem. '
j We learn from Mr. Hickok, who left Good
'year's bar on Monday last, that the snow in that
region was four feet deep; that three men had
been found on the hill this side, frozen to death,
'with flour lashed to their backs, who had been
'carried by Mr. II. and his parly to the bar and
buried. Mr. Hickok came through in 3 days on
foot, bringing $11,000 in treasure. He says he
was on the point of yielding to extreme exhaus
tion several times. It is the intention of Mr.
ill. to get the train through to the bar if possi

which sold at 50 cents per lb.

A little moro than two years ago I gave you
(he first intimation that the new President elect
was then intriguing for high promotion. No
one hud then named him either for President or
Vice President, 1 think, in any paper. I knew
all his plans then, and I understand his purposes
now. His present deep afflictions would pre

of Massachusetts; Judge Campbell, of Pennsyl

of Georgia, and Hon. Jefferson Davis, of Mis
sissippi: should constitute the Cabinet. The
President would have been elad to give the
Post-Office Department to Gen. Pcaslee, Mem
btr of Congress from this State, but he could
not well do it. He alto had a strong desire to
invite Gen. A. Dix, of New lork, into the
Cubinet, but the Democracy of the South would
not consent to Gen. D.'t appointment. Henry

Had nothing transpired during the last four
weeks to trouble the President as to las Caul
net purpose, the Cabinet would be settled as
above; but to-day all is again confusion, and
nolhin? is definitely settled. Mr. Hunter
would take olhoa in cabinet constituted as
above, but he will not accept of the State De

whole cabinet shall be to nis liking.

A very interesting lecture wat delivered on
the lllh inst-by Dr. Gri scorn, t the New York
Mechanics' Institute, on ihe "Influepce of Air
n connection with Animal Life." The lecturer
commenced by saying that some of them would
be surprised lo hear that they lived at the bot
tom of an immense ocean of air fifty miles deep;
yet it was so, and the color of this ocean, which
,t . i , i i 1.1..- -
it canea atmospuere, is a occp ccruicau muc.
To perceive this color it wat necessary to be
able to set at once the whole oluine, and also
on calm and clear day, for no color could be
perceived u seen to amaii quanuiiri, aw -n on
there wat either wind or holiness. In like
manner the color of water could not be seen iu
small quantities, and wat only perceptible where
there was a vast expanse of ocean. The air
was also substance capable of condensation and
expansion. Its expansion wat teen in the windt
by which ships were made to traverse the ocean,
and also in windmills. The tornado was anoth
er phase of its expansion, by which trees were
uprooted, and houses overturned, ana was al
most equal to the power of steam. The great
est weight ef the atmosphere was fifteen pounds
lo the tquare inch, and thit weight presses on
every way, both upward and downward. To
explain the pressure upwards, the lecturer ex
hausted the air out of a large rase, which then
remained fast to the plate on which it stood, but
on the air being let in it wat easily removed.
I remember, said he, being asked the question, if
(here is a pressure of fifteen pounds to the square
inch, the reason why we were not at once
crushed by the weight; but this is, as I before
explained, because the air presses in all direc
tions with the tame force, and hence there is an
equilibrium. Thit is a most important element,
and one which requires to le known, and also
that the air never ' presses more than fifteen
pounds to the tquare inch. The next quality of
the air it elatticity. Prctt it to at to make it
occupy a smaller space than it otherwise would,
and then take away the weight, and it comes
back and occupies its originalspace. The lec
turer then explained that in the air there were
two rases; one oxygen, which it that part ot the
atmosphere by which wo live, and which it the
one-fin h part; and Ue other nitrogen, wuicn is
four-fifths of the atmosphere. Oxygen tup
port! life and combustion, and nitrogen restraint
itt effects and dulls its operation. The quantity
of air which a perton consumes depends in a
measure on oneself, and by training can be made
