we should sav
to nny one, that the active and useful
powciV steam was known to the ancients,
lie would doubtless shrug his: shoulders
and cry, l!,di ! This is an invention of
the moderns. The ancients knew noth
ing of this grout moving force which has
.-hol t. -in d space, brought distant conn
trios comparatively within each other's
embrace, supplanted manual labor, and
giving such a mighty impulse to the pro
ductive energies of the human race. Yet,
let i s halt awhile amid our self-adulation.
Let us take a turn among the ancient re
mains ol 1'alestine, of'Ui'eece, of Babylon,
and J-!gypt, and while gazing on the ruins
of those mighty and stupenduous struc
tures which remain as evidences of an an
cient civilization, a-k ourselves the perti
nent question. "By what motive power
were these immense blocks of granite rais
ed to their position? limy weretheycut?
How moved?" That the ancients did em
ploy other than mere hand force, or sim
ple mechanical contrivenees for this pur
pose, will appear evident from the follow
ing allegory, to bo found in the L'abbinical
writings of the Jews. When King Solo
mon was about to build the temple, he
was anxious to procure a certain worm
which pcssess.es tho extraordinary poworj
of dividing tho largest and heaviest stones. !
But no one knew where ho could obtain ,
this precious insect. Finally, King Solo-'
mon discovered that Asmodeus, tho do-

,11. Ml, ,'1 ,17 1.1 lllltltJtt 111 111 uini, J,-
mn.tni, was in possession of tho secret.
But how was he to extort it from such a
source? Here was a puzzle. However,
Solomon soon resolved upon a stratagem.
It was this: fishmodai was in the habit of
repairing to a certain well in the desert,
where he used to allay his thirst, which
was indeed excessive. Now, the wise king
had a large pit dug close by the well of
water, which resembled the latter that no
one could tell the d itl'eretice. This he
ft'Jed icitli snrik, and fcnc ! up the other.
When Asmodeus came as usual to allay his
thirst, he drunk the spirits instead of the
water, which so intoxicated him, that Sol
omon at once bound him in iron chain,
and thereby got the secret of tho vnrw
with which ho cut the blocks used for the
Temple. Now, if this allegory bo rightly
interpreted, it will prove to a demonstra
tion that King Solomon retorted to the
pumrr ( 'storm as a direct agent in effecting
the cutting and moving of the immense
granite piles which formed bit h the ground
work nnd the superstructure of the Tem
ple. The word "Esimv lai" is a Hebrew
term, composed of three distinct words,
viz,. ",, .lo, diiifire, wittiT, .vijficient, and
in their connected form, therefore, signify
a sficinin iiJirc and water, which are pre
cisely the elements necessary to produce
steam or the irorm which insinuates it
self with wonderful rapidity into the ma
chinery used by man for various purpo
ses. But, besides this definition of tho mine,
let us look to the whole description given
of the manner in which the secret for cut
ting the stones was obtained, nnd wo shall
have the whole "modus operandi" for gen
orating steam illustrated. There was a
well, says the fable, in the desert, which
Solomon sealed up, but he had a larger
jiit dug close by, which he filled with spir
its. Now, steam is generated by raising
water to a certain (.temperature, but the
boiler must be renltd or closed up; there
must bo no openings in the well or boifer
for the ratified vapor to escape ; but this
stream, or, as the fablo has it, spirit, must
be conveyed from the boiler or generator,
through proper channels, to the machin
ery on which it is intended to net, which
is expressed in the fable in its highly alle
gorical style. Tbat steam may lie called
a spirit none will deny : and that it is held
in bondage in iron chains, subservient to
tho will of mail, is a fact which daily ex
perience fully a 'ests. This was the worm
which Solomon employed to cut the stu
ponduous blocks out of the quarries. This
the demon which gave him the secret.
It was the secret which science knows how
to extract from tho hidden le-ources (if
of neture, but which has very often expos
ed its possessor to the charge of having
dealings with the devil. S. Jacoiis,

Tiik Dfaiii l.'w K.-Wi) have recently
been informed of a truly wonderful clock,
which is said to beloug'to a family residing
in Newport, Ky. Wo relate the peculiari
ties of this clock as they were lelated to
us, leaving our leaders to arrive at their
own conclusions as to the mystery. Our
informant is one who can be relied on.
I'ho clock is of simple construction, nnd
belongs to tho family of Mr. 1. V, but
all the efforts of the clock makers have not
been able to make it keep time conse
quently it has been permitted to rest in
silence. A few hours before the death of
Mr. L Y's sister, which took place
some time since, the clock suddenly
struck one altera silenc of several months.
It thus continued to maintain its silenc
until another of tho members of the fami
ly were prostrated with a fatal malady,
when it again struck one, and on the fol
lowing d.iy the child was buried. A year
elapsed, when a second child sickened
and died. The clock was punctual in
sounding one a few hours previous to his
death. A third child, a little hoy, fifteen
months old, was ntllicted with scrofula,
which baffled the skill of his physician,
and on the third day of this month its re
mains were deposited in the grave. The
clock gnve the usual warning and struck
one. Jt never failed sounding a death
knell when any one of tho family in whose
possession it now is, were about to die.

There is an association in J'uiladclphiu,

at improving tho breed of Canary birds,
and last month they published their thir
teenth annual rejiort. rrom that it ap
pears that the bird sales of J'hiladelphia
me confined to Germans, and amount to
f 10,000 annually, and three quarters of
that sum is derived f.iom the salo of Cana
ries. Tho common, or original Canary, is
of the least value, and sells at about $'2;
the improved kinds bring from 8 to $10
a piece, and are from Central Kurope.
Tho great majority of these bird were ob
tained from Belgium, where they are bred
in houses by the peasants, who raise them
ns a pastime. They are what are culled
"long" and "ahort" breeds. Birds of the
long breed are procured from Brussels,
Antwerp, and Dietz, where they some
times obtain extravagant prices. Their
cost depends upon tho color and shape,
the pure yellow being the most esteemed.
They are only used for the purpose of
breeding, nnd oftentimes Sell for a

At the recent scientific convention at I

paper giving the results of some chemical -t
examination connected with a bullet im-j
bedded for inoro than forty years in a

received a bullet wound at the seige of
Badajo7, in the Benin Milar War, retired,
upon a pension from the British Govern-1

Kingston, Canada. Cpon dissection, tho
bullet was found enclosed in a cyst or b ig !
within the lung, and closely adhering to J
its walls in several places. The ball had'
lost one hundred grains of its original

Nut: 'I ho recent signature of treiity,
haying for its objebt the suppression of
the African slave trade, by five of the pow
ers of Kurope, and to which France is a
party, is a tad of such general notoriety
that it may be as.-uuied as tho basis of any
diplomatic representations w hich the sub
ject may fairly require.
The I'liited States, being no party to
this treaty, have no right to inquire 'into
the circumstances which have led to it,
nor into the measures it proposes to adopt,
except so far as they have reason to be
lieve that their rights mny be involved in
the course of its execution. Their own de
sire to put a stoji to this traflio is every
where known, ns well as the early and com
tinned efforts they have adopted to prevent
their citizens from prosecuting it. Thoy
have deen invited by the government of
Great Britain to become a party to the
treaty, w hich should regulute the action of
the combined governments upon tho sub
ject. But, forieusons satisfactory tothem
si Ives, and I believe satisfactory to world,
they have declined this united action, and
have chosen to pursue their ow n measures,

In a communication from Lord l'alincr
ston, her Britannic Majesty's principal
Secretary of State for Foreign Affairs, to
Mr. Stevenson, the American minister at
London, dated "7th August, 18-Jl, Lord
I'almerston claims a right for tho British
cruisers, mid avows the intention of his
government to exercise it, to search
American vessels nt sea in time of peaee(
with a view to ascertain their national
character. He adds that "this cxamina
tion of papers of merchantmen suspected
of being engaged in the slave trate, evcit
thongh they hoist a United States flag, u
a proceeding which is absolutely necessan

pression of the slave trade should contiu

In a communication from the successo'
of Lord Aberdeen to Mr. Stevenson, dated
October 13, 1811, the views and determi-'
nation announced in the first are confirm-'
ed ; and Lord Aberdeen thus states the
ground upon which rests this pretention,
to search American vessels in timo ot
peace: "But tho undersigned mus observe
that the present happy occurrence of tin:
States of Christendom in this great objeer

merely justifies, but renders it indispensa

comments upon this pretension, nor upon
tho reasons advanced in support of it.
And if it were, 1 should find the duty far
better performed for me than 1 could per

of the President of thel'l'iiitcd States
to Congress of December i, lN-Jl. In that
document will be lound the vciws of tin
AnierifMii government upon this subject :
and it is taei'e-emphatio.illy declared that,
'however desirous the United States may
be for the suppression of the slave trad,!,
they cannot consent to interpolations into
the maritime code at the meie will and
and pleasure of other government. Wo'
deny tin: l ight of any such interpolation
to any oii'i or all tho nations of the earth,
without our consent. We claim to have a
voice in all amendments or alterations of
that code; nnd when we are given to un
derstand, as in this instance, by a foreign1
government, that its' treaties with other
n iti ons c.'innot be executed without tho
establishment and enforcement of new
principles of maritimep dice, tobonpplieil
without (ear consent, we must employ lan
g l ige neither of equivocd import nor sus
ceptible, of misconstruction.''
You will peceive, sir by these extracts,
that the British government had advanc
ed a pretension which it si;serti to be in
dispensable to the execution of its treaties
for the suppression of the slave trade, nnd
to which the President of the United
States has declared that the American
government will not submit. This claim
of search, it will be observed, arising, as it
is asserted, out of existing obligations, har
relation to the insulated treaties for the
aboli'ion of this traffic w hich were in force
at the date of tho communications of
Lord Paluier.ston and of L rd Aberdeen,
ltji- now known that the combined treaty
upon this subject is more extensive in its
operations and more minute in somo of
the details of its exeeusioii than tho fcopa
r.ite treaties with Franco whi.ih preceded
it, and equally indefinite iu tho duration
of its obligations. Of course, measures
which were not only "justifiable, but in
dispensable" for the execution of tho lat
ter, will hnd equal. pisiiee aim neressuy nv
the obligations of the former. With this
previous declaration made by one of the
parties to this quintuple treaty, coHcern
ing its operation!-, the American govern
ment c.'innot shut their eyes to their true
position. The inoF.il effect which such a
union of five great powers, two of which
are eminently maritime, but three of which
have perhaps never had a vessel engaged
in that trallie, u calculated to produce up
on the United States, and upon other na
tions who, like them, may lie indisposed
to these combined movements, though it
may bo regretted, jet furnishes no just
cause for com plaint. But the subject as
sumes another aspect wheu they' are told
