tinued Jim, " Friend Nathan, I am going to knock

Suiting the action to the word, Jim, alter various
pugilistic gyrations with his fists: made a very sci

out, and approached Nathan more cautiously. The

which Jim aimed at him.

but one way of bringing this scandalous and wicked

out the d:reclion, Nathan struck him a tremendous
blow on his forehead, which browlit him senseless
to the ground.

his body writhed like a dying man's. Nathan per.

ly passive, he then _seined his hold. Jim was
slow in recovering his speech and his Senses, when
he did, he begged Nathan, for mercy's sake to re.
lease him. ,
When thee will make the promise I exact from
thee, I will release thee, but no sooner," replied
Jim saw he was powerless, and that the Quaker
was reselule. He felt it was no use to persist in
his subbornness.
" I will give in," he replied, " 1 will promise to
love my neighbor as myself."
" Including the Quakers I" insinuated Nathan
"Yes, including the Quakers," replied Jim.
"Thou mayest arise trien ; friend James, answer•
Nathan, " and I trust the lesson thou haet learn
ed to day will make a more peaceable citizen of
thee, and I hope a better man."
Poor Jim was completely humbled; he left the
field with his spirits completely cowed:'. Not long
after this occurrence the atm, became bruited about.
This was more than Jim could bear. He soon af
ter lellthe scene of his late disastrous defeat, and
ern grated to the " far west." The last heard of
him he was preparing to make another move. Be
ing pressed for tiis reason why lie again emigrated,
he said a colony of Quakers were about moving in
to his neighborhood. He was wider an obligation
to love them, but he was of the opinion that dia
lance would lend strength to his attachment.

The Products of Tobacco
In the last number of Blackwood there is an in-
teresting and instructive essay upon " Narcotics,"
Irom which we extract the following account of the
tobacco plant, and estimate of the usual product
through the world :
The tobacco plant is indigenous to tropical Amer
ca, whence it was introduced into Spain and France
in the beginning of the sixteenth century by the
Spaniards, and into England half a century later,
(1586) by Sir Francis Drake. Since that time, both
the use and and the cultivation of the plant have
spread over a large portion of the globe Besides
the different parts 01 America, including,. Canada,
New Brunswick, the United States, Mexico, the
Western Coast, the Spanish Main, Brazil, Cuba,
St. Domingo, Trinidad, &c., it has spread into the
East, into Turkey, Persia, India, China, Australia,
the Phillipine Islands, and Japan. It has been rag
ed with sucese also in nearly every country in Eu•
rope; while in Africa it is cultivated in Egypt, Al
gotta, in the Canaries, on the Western Coast and
the Cape of Good Hope. It is, indeed, among liar.
entice what the potato is among lood•plants--the
most extensive:y cultivated, the most hardy, and
the most tolerant of charges in temperature, altitude
and 'general climate.
We need scarcely remark, that the use of the
plant has become not less universal than its cull
cation. In America, it is met with everywhere,
and the consumption is enormous. In Europe,
from the plains of sunny Castile to the frozen Arch
angel, the pipe and cigar are the common solace
among all ranks and conditions. In vain Pope Ur
ban VIII thundered out his bull against vain
our own James I wrote his " Counterblaste to To
bacco." Opposition only excited mote general at
tention to thu plant, awakened curiously regarding
it, and pf0.11(1!rd its consumption.
So in the Feast—the priests and Sultans of Tur
key and Persia, declared smoking a sin against
their holy religion, yet nevertheless the Turks arid
Persians became the greatest smokers in the world.
In Tutkey the pipe is perpetually io the mouth; in
India all classes and bosh sexes smoke; in Chi n a
the practice is so universal, that " every lemale
from the age of eight or nine years, wears as an
appendage to her dress a small silken pocket, to
hold tobacco and pipe.'' It is even argued by P• 11-
as, that the extensive prevaler ce of the practice in
Asia, and especially in Ch:na, proves the use of tu•
bacco for smoking to be more ancient than the (W.
covery of the New Milli!. " Among the Chinese,'
he says, " and moon& the Mongol tribes who had
the most intercourse with them, rite custom oism t.
king is so general, so frequent, and has become so
indispensable a luxury; the tobacco puree affixed
to their belts so necessary an article ot dress, the
form of the pipes, from which the Dutch seem to
have taken the model of theirs, so original ; and
lastly, the preparation of the yellow leaves, which
are merely rubbed to nieces and then put into the
pipe, so. peculiar, that they could not pos:.ibly de
rive all ibis from America by way of Europe, es
pecially its India, where the practice ot smoking is
not eita general, intervenes between Persia and Chi-
Leaving the question ol its origin, the reader will
not be sin piised, when he CiniSldelS how widely
:he practice of smoking prevails, that th:.l total pro.
duct ol the tobacco grown on the lace of the globe,
has been ca culated by Mr Crawford, to amount to
the enormous sum of two millions of tons The com
parative magnitude ol this quantity will strike the
reader more forcibly when we state that the whole
ol the wheat cottsomed by the inhabitants of G; eat
Britain—estimating it at a quarter a-head, or in
round numbers at twenty millions of quarters—
weigh only four and one third millions of tons; so
that the tobacco raised for the gratification of this
one form of the narcotic appetite, weighs as much
as the wheat consumed by ten millions of Englith
men. And teckontng it at only double the market
value ol wheat, or two pence and a fraction per lb.,
it is worth in money as much as all the wheat eat•
en in Great Britain.
The largest producers, and probably the largest
consumers of tob.tcco, are the United States of
America. The annual production, at the last two
decennial periods of their census returns, was esti
mated at,
3 8. 10 , •..... 219,163 319 lhs
1850, 199 75° 646 tt
being about one twentieth part of the twbule sup
posed produce (.1 the globe.
One of the remarkable circumstances connected
with the hi-oory of Tobacco, is the rapidity with
liich its growth and consumption have increased
in almost every country, since the discovery of
America. In 1652, the quantlfy nosed in Virginia
—the chief producer of tobacco on the American
shores of the Atlantic—was only 60,000 Ittcs ; and
the quantity exported from that colony in 1689, on
ly 120,000 lbs. In two hundred and thir y )ears,
the produce has risen to nearly twice as many red
lions And the extension of its use in our own
country may be interred from the facts that, in the
above year of 1689, the total importat.on WilS 120,-
000 lbs. of Virginian tobacco, part of whiyh was
probably re-exported; while, in 1852, the quantity
entered for home consumption amounted to 28,558,-
753 lbs, being something over a pound per head
of the whole population, and to this must be added
the large quantity of contraband tobacco, which the
heavy duly of 3s. per pound tempts' the smuggler
to intrealuce. The whole.dut levied on the above
quantity -in 1852, was £4,560,741, which is equal
to a poll tax of 3a. a head.
