Now comes the tug. Jacob SAiith. When Caleb left the phickle Pheebe, it was with the determination never to see her again. He would be a wanderer. He would land on the other lands and climb foreign climes; he"wouId go and be an ancient mariner. Filled with this desperate resolve he sought his boarding house, put a clean shirt and collar in a cotton valise, and started for the river. A gallant tug lay at the dock, which lie boarded and request ed to see the captain. A sailor, whose voice was deeply bronzed by exposure to the Tropic of Barleycorn, 'appeared at the top mizen gangway, and informed him that the captain was "engaged in Jhe cabin.. iHe was being presented with a bosom pin and a gold headed cane by a ferryman who was about to retire from office. - The presenta tion was wholly unexpected. After a considerable delay Caleb was in vited to descend. When he entered the cabin he was struck with the youthful and delicate appearance of the captain. He was about to tell him he had come to ship before the well, smokestack, when the supposed, captain raised his cap, and a shower of corkscrew curls 'fell upon his shoulders. .

Philosophy of Baid. To bhderstand the philosophy of this beautiful, and often.' sublime phenomenon, so often witnessed 6ince the creation, and i essential to the very existence of animals, a few facts derived from observation and a long train of experiments must be remem bered : . . : . .1. Were the atmosphere .evary where, at all limes at a uniform' temperature, we should hferer have rain, or hail, or snow. The water absorbed by it in evaporation from the sea and the earth's surface would descend ia an imperceptible vapor or cease to be' absorbed by the air when once fully saturated. ..;.' 2. The absorbing power of the atmos phere, consequently its capability to retain humidity, is proportionally greater in cold than ia warm air. . . , 3. The air near the surface of the earth is wnrn?er than it is in the region of the clouds The higher we ascend from .the earth the colder do we find the atmosphere. Hence the perpetuel enow oa very high mountains in the hottest' climates. Now, when from continual evaporation the air is highly sat urated with vapor'ifiough it be invisible and the sky cloudless, if its temperature is sud denly reduced by cold currents Of air'rush ing from above, or from a higher to a lower latitude, its capacity , to retain moisture is. diminished, clouds are. formed, -and the re sult ia rain.

It is well known to every soldier in the 1 1th Regiment that "our "supply-train was not sufficient to keep the army in provis ions over three days. . Now bad General The wagon train once lost our army would soon have been compelled to surrender at discretion. . ... Again, suppose General Patterson, in ' !pbH nf mnrinir 'mm Pnnliprtl'.l! in rj,3r!o. 1 ton. had marched to Winchester, what j would have been the consequence ? I think n would not have lequired a prophet to have foretold the resnlt ; the fct is, had we ' marched upon Winchester our army would our line of march. Every approach to Winchester was carefully guarded and de- fended by an abatit and heavy artillery. This alon?) won'd have rendered it impoi- ble to have made a 6'jccessful assault upon the enemy's works at that time. The enemy boaslingly said give us a fair Hill. He was ready and willing,- nay anx- 1 ' ions, to fight them even with an odds of two ti one against him, but the ch'valry had no stomach for a fair field or a fair fight. Instead of meeting us on a fair field for bat tle they chose to pursue a course thai would inevitably lead to our destruction ; by ma king mastsrly and precipitate retreats ths enemy sought to lore us into the toils he had prepared for us. Now had we followed the, Rebel in his retreat from. Bunker Hill, I am convinced we would nave been repuls ed with great loss ; but our ncbls- and prn dent commander was n&t so easily circum vented. He knew the object th9 enemy had in view, and also that their force wa3 double his own, both in men and artillery. Ceheial Patterson therefore acted the part of a prudent and skillful strategist by leaving the enemy at Winchester to enjoy the fruits of his labors in the shape , of useless and expensive bastions and iedoubn. Onr Gen eral has accomplished a great deal, he has rot only saved his entire army wilh all the camp equipage, artillery and arms, bet also returns about twenty thousand men who have had the experience of a three months campaign, and who are now nearly all ready to serve theif country again in Ibe field, and 6iand by her until peace is restored and our Star Spangled.

A correspondent of the New York Tri kmc, -one of the 79th regiment) describing the late battle; remarks: -First of all we observed wkat had been all day conceded the- deadly accuracy ol the Confederate artillery. Scarce a thot failed to bring down its horse, man or gun carriage. As one regiment I ' think the Brooklyn 14th, was advancing to the charge a fchot from a rifled cannon brought down the flag, color, guard and all. It was seized instantly by other hands, and borne rapidly on. Whenever men would lie down under the elope of a hill to screen them the with ering fire of the batteries the gunners would get their range so accurately that balls and shells would come skimming over the ' hill side, not' six inches from the ground alight ing in the 'hollow, amid a nest of crouching soldiers. Many and many a poor fellow was killed while.lying on his face or in a gully to avoid the 6h6t. ' i . : Sreaking of a charge made by the Feder al trooops on a battery, the writer says : Numbers of our men went down as the hurricane iron swept by us, and it was with no little difficulty that we could close up the line bo as to charge effectively.- Soon this terrible gulf was passed, and our men charged op the hill with renewed vigor The Confederetes waiting until we ap proached above the brow ol the hill, and then poured such a volley upon us as de cimated the regiment in an instant. Scores of onr men fell forward on their faces with a peculiar supine motion as a wave fall on a beach. Captain Brown being in advance and seeing the Confederates running from their guns to the cover of the trees, rushed forward waiving his sword, and shouted "Now boys, rally." Scarcely were the words through his lips when a rifled buliet pierced him through the neck ; at the same instant a cannon ball entered his side, and he fell to the earth, pinned as it wei to the ground. ' Some of his men tried to take a watch," by order of t!ie lieutenants, but found it buried in his vitals. He died bravely and as he liad wished, having often expressed the hope that he might never burvive the defeat of the regiment. Capt. Shillinulaw was shot throngh both knees, and immediately af er one of his men lifting h'wn up for he washing on his face found him dead, i with his beard dabbied with blood from a ! commenced. Col.

Ther are certain facts in regard to the life of Henry King, who died on the' 13th ultimo, at his residence in Allenlowri, ' Pennsylvania, which afford so striking a i contrast to the history of his rebel' brother, j T. Butler King, now a commissioner of the : bouthern Confederacy in Europe, that we 1 cannot do better than put them'on the'rec- ord. - Henry King was born In Hampden coun ty; Massachusetts on the 6th day of July, 1790. His brother, T. Butler King, born fournieen years later, in the sams' county and Sia:e. In the same county they received their preli.ninary education. In 1810 Hen ry King commenced the study of law under the then eminent W. H. Brainerd, of New London, Connecticut, and remained in his office until the disturbed condition of the neighborhood, arising from the hostilities of 1812, compelled him to remove to Wilkes Barre, Pennsylvania, where he completed his studies, and was admitted to the bar during the same year. He immediately opened an office in Allentown, being at the time, and for long after, the only resident lawyer in Lehigh county, and measuring blades on circuit with the first advocates of the StateJ In 1823 the career of the brothers divided T. B. King having finished his legal educa tion at the age of nineteen, while his broth er at thirty-three was engaged in the com bat of life at Allentown, emigrated to Geor gia, where h'e shortly after engaged in the business of the plantation, and married a lady who had a large fortune of negroes. Two years after, in 1825, Henry King was elected to the Pennsylvania Senate, and again re elected in 1829. Before his second term expired he was chosen to rep resent his district, in Congress, and filled the position from 1831 to 1835. Meantime T. Butler King was in the State Senate of Georgia, and four years after his brother left Congress filled a Representa tive's chair for his adopted State, between 1839 and 1849, being out only from 1843 to 1845. While T.Butler King W3S becoming mere and more that subservient creature of flat tery and patronage a Northern man with Southern principles, being, in 1833, a mem ber of the ililledgeville Convention, and, in 1S40, of the Young Men's Convention at Baltimore Henry King was a steadfast ad vocate of freedom in its largest sense. To him is due the entire renovation of that shameful system of favoritism which ap pointed the cadets at West Point ia the pro portion of four-fifths from th9 South and the remainder fiom the larger Northern cities, and the equal distribntion among all our districts of a patronage which has even now proven only too partially distributed for the safety of a nation who8? pampered chil dren are in arms against her. He was the farther of the present admi rable prison Eystem of Pennsylvania so undeniably, to, that years after his Moya mensing reforms, the Prussian Commis sioners toughl him out in his retirement at Allentown, and asked his assistance in the direction of their discplinary inspection he resisted throughout his whole career every potdic outlay for more private good-and . while at once a Whin, and the warme.t ! friei.J of tbe Pennsylvania canals and rail- j ways, opposed to his utmest the incurring of a debt which has hampered the Keystone Commonwealth N Y.

A German gentleman wrote an obituary on tha death of bis wife, of which the follow ing is a copy i "If mine vife bat lived until next Friday she would have been dead shust two weeks. Nothing is possible wit da Almighty. As da tree falls so mast it stand." Any one may be a fool in the head or a fool in the heart and escape detection, but I if be is a fool in the face, ha is indubitably condemned. ' " " NUMBER 34 'OuserratloBi on Storms." ' A 1. The Atlantic ocean is the source of nearly all the rains which 'visit this part of the country. The moisture collected trom the great lakes is . small in quantity, travel but' a short dista'nce.'and usually falls to the northward of 'this narallel ' Th fiu'f f Mexico sheds its1, vapor on the great western valley Frbra tbe norKern. "ocean .ml th alley. From tbe norhern. ocean and ihe rivers flowing into it, hardly anyj moisture is evaporated. ' ' - , 2. Tbe heated air descending from the surface of the Atlantic, especially from tha Gulf Stream, is wafted over tha Japd by winds which usually blow al a right angle lo the general coast line. ; . -8. -No rain storms are experiencedpor even heavy showers, after the , wind has been blowing steadily irom the north-west this being a dry current, and absorbing in stead of giving out moisture. , , 4. After hot days, during the summer sea son, the sea breezes usaaliy set ia towards evening. On reaching the mountains this current comes in contact with a cooler one lrom the opposite direction, when there i apt to be a thunder shower, followed by tha ordinary north wester. The storm occurs along the line of collision between those opposing currents, and of course travels in the direction of the ocean, - 5. When a sonth-easter has prevailed for a time at any season, It is reasonable to ex pect a corresponding heavy rain, as the clouds have a great quantity of raoistnre to deposit. At the same lime the coolness which succeeds will usually be in about the same ratio, the wet sodace of the .'ground absorbing much of ihe caloric in the lower atmosphere. ". : . 6. The north-east storm isprobaly ia every case paused by one of those circular storms termed "Cyclones," whose centre is some disttnee to ihe eastward. Ia such a case ihe storm travels from eoutb-west to north-east, or in the contrary direction to that in which we feel the breeze blowing. If accurate observations were made as to the changes in the wind, the centre of tha tempest might be calculated wilh tolerable accuracy. In proportion to the length of time and tbe strength and coolness cf cur rent, the storm will probably be more or less severe. A correspondent,; who has long made this subject a study, remarks that the north easters are seldom experi enced west of tha Alleghenies. ... 7. It is remarkable ; that oa this side of those mountains, Morms scarcely ever blow from any of tbe cardinal points of the com pass. Any exception are believed to ba only cases when the wind is turning, or ra ther when persona are entering into or pass out of the track of the tempest. These observations might be multiplied to a great extent ; but probably comprise the most important facts in relation to the storms which are experienced in this part of the country. To those who are not familUr with the subject, they will serve to explaia in part, the more immediate causes of those ' phenomena. Hen's Ncsts Scrc Rimcdv tor Eatino Eggs.
