The “Poison Wind.”
A Busman nobleman, who has been
traveling in Africa, gives the following
account of the Samieli, Simoon, or poison
Wind, which is such in object of interest
and terror to alTclasses and ail battens.—
He says: The Samieli is felt in (he Desert
from about the middle of June to the 21st
of September. It is experienced with a
very vtelentaouth west wind, and on those
days when the heat of the sun is most ar
dent It is burning j it comes in gusts
more or less scorching, of more or lesg
duration; each of them, however, even
the shortest, exceeds the time that a man
50814 hold his breath. . This wind consists
iii ‘a succession of burning,and cool gusts.
In the first, there is frequently a double
degree of heat and impetuosity. The dif
ference between the not and cold gusts
according to my observation, is from 7 to
10 degrees. The highest degree of the
hotgusts was 73 deg. of Farenheit; the
temperature in the sun, without the Sa
mieli, having been Constantly from 53
deg. to 57 deg. I thought Icould observe
that when this wind blows, a yellowish
tinge, inclining to livid, is diffused through
the atmosphere; and that, in its most vio
lent periods, the sun becomes of a deep
red.; Its odor is infectious and sulphure
ous ; it is thick and heavy, and when its
heat' increases, it almost causes suffoca
tion. It Occasioned a. pretty copious per
spiration, partly excited by the uneasiness
which one feels, and the difficulty with
which one breaths, on account of its foetid
quality. This perspiration appears to me
more dense and viscioiis than the natural
perspiration; the wind itself deposits an
unctuous fluid. The better to *Tan?iqy
its qualities aud-its nature, l opeaed my
mouth to the palate and throat
were it produced the
same eiffcct when 1 inhaled through the
nostrils, but more slqwiy. To preserve
one's self fsom it, and. keep the perspira
tion more free, iMs usual to wrap up the
with a icm«ltccchief. In passing (he
tissue it losses a part of its action and of
its destructive principle, and besides the
breath keeps up i degree of humidity, and
hinders the burning idr from suddenly
penetrating into the mouth and lungs.-
The Arabs, therefore, are accustomed,
whatever the heat may he, even in the
shade, to wrap the whpm body, not excep
ting (he head, in their mesehtah, (cloak,)
if they desire to sleep. wind causes,
by the rarificawon tbiteattends it, a pretty
strong, agitation in the blood; aud this in
creased movement soon' brings on weak
ness. It in general produces on man two
effects cUstinctiy characterized. It strikes
him with a kind of asphyxy, or
causes bun a great debility. The corpse
of a person so suffocated has this peculiar
ity, that du a few days, or even hours, as
some Arabs affirm, thp limbs separate at
tike joints with the slightest effort so
powerful is the action p£ the poison on the
muscular parts, giving astonishing activi
ty to the progress of putrefaction: Such
a corpse is reported contagious. I know
nothing so tcrrible as this wind; some in
terruptions, one of which was for three
days and three nights successively. My
interpreter, Mrl Bossdl, was struck by it,
huf escaped death by of blood;
That which confirms what I have said of
th« separation of the limbs, is, that, hav
ing been struck by-this air, I was affected
forsome weeks withan extreme weakness;
and toe'leaSt warm wind blew

occupations that do not require advertis
ing, but I cannot well conceive what they
are.—P. T. Barnum.
“ I have always considered Advertising
—liberally and long—to be the great med
ium of success in business, and the prelude
to wealth. Apd 1 have made it an invari
able rule, too, to advertise in the dullest
times, a long experience having taught
me that mony thus spent is well laid optj
as by keeping my business continually
before the public, has secured many sdlles
that I otherwise would have lost.”—Ste
phen Girard.
“ Whatever success I may have had; in
business 1 owe mainly to continuous Ad
vertising, and I deem it good policy to ad
vertise long in the same papers. From a
close observation, I am fully convinced
that it is impossible to make much head
way in any branch of commerce, without
the facilities which the Press alone can
give.”— Jacob Ridgeway.
“ My motto through life has been —
work apd Advertise. In business, adver
tising is the true Philosopher's stone, that
turns whatever it touches to gold. 1 have
advertised much, both in the weekly; as
wbll as iu the daily papers; nor have I
found that those of the largest circulation,
of either class, benefitted me the most.” —
Joun Jacob Astor.
■ “ Advertise! advertise! advertise ! This
is the life of trade, and standing advertis
ments, you will find, will. prove the most
renumerative, at least I have found it so
during my business career thus farj for
should you withdraw a single week from
the paper in which you are ascustomed to
advertise, tea to one that would be the
time when sonic would-be new customers
will look into the paper for your business
address, and not finding it, you will lose
several profitable sales.’ —William Gray
Mr. Meagber’s Apostrophe to
We are- 1 confident that our readers will
peruse with interest the following sketch
of that portion of Hr. Meagher’s eloquent
iu which he apostrophizes, the
“filthy lucre.” It is too noble to be’lost,
but it is not superior to the elevated and/
glowing tenor of his whole discourse:
“ Gold, which has caused many a brain
to ache, has blistered many a baud, broken
many a heart, has wounded many a stor
ing soul, and, clinging to it, has brought
it to the dust; gold, which has bought
the integrity of the statesman, and led ills
wisdom captive ; gold, which has silenced
the tongue of the orator, and bought the
flatteries of the poet ; gold, for which, in
the gay saloons of fashion, many a fair,
and noble girl has plighted the vow which
has consigned her life to bitterness, and
looked, upon her radient neck the- snake
that ffer veins with venom; gold,
which has stolen into the councils of the
struggling nation, has bred dissensions
among her chiefs, has the seal of
her sacred secrets, has iorCed tho gates of
her strongest citadels, has bought the evi
dences which hurried her apostles to’ the
scaffold, has bought the votes which made
over her inheritance, to others, and her
glory to a strange people; gold, which has
led the traitor to the garden, and with a
kiss betrayed the Redeemer Pf thc world;

j.,D. Austin, Esq., of the El Paso and
Eort Yuma Wagon-Road Commission,
writes under the date of October 3,1858,
fh>mFortYuma,as follows;
.“Near our old camp, and about fifteen
miles shove this place, a gold mine has
been discovered,, directly on the road,
which is represented as being exceedingly
rich, People are flocking to it from aU
quarters, and numbers of emigrants en
route for &alifomia\ have stopped there.
All the men who leave our expedition are
bound to this new gold discovery. X cent
a Mr. Kent, of our company, who is a re
liable man, and has; spent seven years in
the California mines, to prospect'the'lo
cality for mo. He reports that the pros
pect is good, and that the miners ore ren
ting from 85 to 825 per day. The dis
tance from the diggings to the mines is
from half a mile to a mile. The gold is
found in huujps and is readily washed. I
have as yet seen no dust; and, indeed, no
very small particles from this region.-
Mr. Kent has a brother with ns, who will
accompany the expedition to San Diego,
and then return to the mines. ' The two
brothers are New York farmers, in good
piroumstanoes, and they consider this a
favorable opportunity to bettor their for
tunes.” *
Mr. Austin has charge of this commis
sion, 'which consists of 12 6-mule teams
and fifty men, and left the valley oftho
Rio Grande in August.- Its object was to
increase the water > facilities of tho route,
and improve the condition of tho road be
tween El Paso and Fort Yuma. The ex
pedition arrived at the Western terminus
of the road, Fort Yuma, on the Ist of Oc
tober, and on the Sd started for San Die
go, where the property will be sold and
the commission closed. The gentleman
appointed to superintend the wort being
injured by an accident, which occurred
jus|b before leaving the Rio Grande, the
duty of his post fell on to Mr. Austin, who
was nest in command. He ha? discharg
ed it, apparently, in a very satisfactory
manner, and is’ expected home in Decern*
ber, proximo. Ho will return by the
