And then forget their glitter ;

Dr. Johnson observes :—"There is a sa

meat to prove that mart, is not mortal, I
would look for , it in the streak, convulsive

the stern heart of manhood is sometimes
melted to tears—they are what help to el

tears of affection. They are painted to
kens, but still most holy. There is a plea
sure in tears—an awful pleasure. If there
were none on earth to shed a tear for me,
I should be loth to livo ; and if no one

A Groat Work In Italy.
Recent letters ',peak of an Undertaking
by the King of the 'Pwo'Sicilies, which, if
accomplished, will •do inure for his credit
than anything that. hasiranspired since his
Recession. We refer , to the draining of the
[Ace FoCino - or Callan°, This lake lies
about 110 miles north of Naples, • and is
surrounded by the highest Appeninea.—
The melted snows and the rains flowing .
from these mountains run into the lake,
and as it has no outlet, the surrounding
land, which is al great fertility,•is constant
ly liable to, be submerged.. Julius Caesar
intended to have had the, lake drained; but
did not livelong enough to accomplish his
design. The Emperor Claudius 'under ,
took it, and had 304000 men employedlot
eleven years in constructing a canal through
the mountains ; but his workMl/1 destroy...,
ed by hie Successor. Through succeeding
ages the Work was repeatedly restnitt, tint
never completed: • At length . King" Ferdi
nand IL has. granted to a .Neapolitan.com•
patty chiefly. however, composed .of
Frenchmen. certain ',advantageous' terms,
and, they are about comnieneirig operations
on the old work of Claudius, and they'are
to finish it within eight years.. The lake i
is in be entirely drained, and the effect, it is.l
said, will be-the reclamation of thirty-three '
thousand 'acres of the richest land, which
will become .the. property of the company:

DIIRATIUN.OI VEUISTABLE LIFE.—LoII
Lindsay states that, in the course of his
wanderings amid the .pyramids of Egypt,
he stumbled on a mummy; proved by Its,
hieroglyphics to be at least two thousand'
years of ago. On examining "the mummy
after it was unwrapped, AO found in one 1
of its closed hands a tuberous or' bulbous'
root. '.llO was interested in the question
how long vegetable - life could last, and he
therefore took that tuberous root from the
mummy's baud, planted it ina sunny wilt

a question amongst people who aro tlO,
acquainted with the anatomy and physiol
*ogy of titan, whether lying with the head
exalted, or even with the body, was the
more wholesome. Most, consulting their
OWG ease on this point, argue in favor of
that whioh they prefer. Now although
many delight in bolstering up their heads
at night, antilleeping soundly, without in
jury, yet we declare it to boa dangerous
habit. The vessels through which the
blood pans from the heart to the head are
always lessened -in their cavities when the
bead is resting ott a bed higher than the
body ;/ therefore in all dheases attended
with fever, the head should be pretty near
