Many gentlemen after having the tee. matter explained to them, express. a. ed a desire to sign the petition. peaes were entertained that the amount was not sufficient to insure a o prteetion, in which ease the money woueald be throw. away, but when the action of the River Com mission was understood, and the fact that their action would be in fluenced by the action of the parties Or most interested, a "change came ,L o'er their dream," and the matter assumed a different aspect. It 1w would therefore be unjust to many o gentlemen who have not signed the petition, to publish the list with. rao out giving them another opportun. ty to alg, and as that weaould have t involved delay, ad as there were s fuelmnt signalese to jMutify the SPolice Jury in ordering the election, the names are dispensed with. by The list of names was carefally gone over by th committee, and rat. the tau rolls called into requisition lea bte they toot action te Mat.

W. Vogel. In a communication made before the Physical Society of Berlin, this investigator an onounces that after years of experi mentation, during which he had a met with partial success, as in the production of the yellow tint, lie of has finally succeeded in obtainingi also the yellow, the blue, the green, and in a measure also the red, d with an apparent intensity to the eye equal to the tints of the origin " als. The difficulty that has iith.. w erto klin in the way of color rep. 'o resentation is the circumstance that the ordinary sensitive plate is af fected only by the more refrangible rays, while the less refrangible re main inoperative. Accordingly we have produced very unnatural rep t' resentations of colored objects: y shades of yellow and red, no mat ter of what brilliancy, appearing as g' black, and the deepest shade of t blue, for example, as white. The problem of rendering the sensitive plates susceptible to the less re frangible rays is that which h as attracted Prof. Vogel's attention, and in its solution, as effected r through the use of the substance s known as losine, and its various dervative, lies the secret of the a result as stated.-Philadelphia * American.

The typography will be carefully given; minutely describing Parishes, towns, anil villa&pes, anl routes thereto, whether Steam Bosa, Railroad, or Stage Coach and when there, just whom you will meet. The soil of each locality, its nature prodluctions anti nmule ,,f culture, will be carefully described, what fertilisers are used, whether improvoed imple meats are used or not, and if not, why not, with suggeetions how the farmer may be reached by the manufacturer. Stock raising, mode of doing so; show. ing the advantage of improved stock Statistics will be gathered of amount and elase of goods sold in each town, and amount of business done by each farmer; number of bak''of cotton ship ped, Ac.
