AN lIUSU 81:911.1'
—Once-upon-a--time, a.,long_while ago, when
giants were as plenty in Ireland as fleas in a
tom cat, there lived on the borders of the
county of Armagh, one Barney Weonnel, who
lawfully came under the above appellation' be
ing seven feat high, and made in proportion.—
His prowess was well knolvn, and acknow
ledged for many a mile around ; but there was
one thing that grieved Barney above n little,
nauiely, that he could get nobody I hat was a
ble to stand before him in his own country.—
Nt4:report spoke of a certain giant in Scot
land who was laboring under the like grief, and
for precisely the same, cause; therefore, Bar
ney, after consulting his friendS on the sub
ject, sent a chalk* to the Scoth giant "to
come to - Ireland and havethe conceit taken out
of himself." After due tine the bearer of
the challenge returned with word that it had
been accepted, and furthei 7 stated that he was
advised to inform- Barney that he had better
Hake his will, get his coffin made, &e., as he
whom lie was about to encounter never left
his work half done. •
"Did you see lini?'", asked Barfly.
"Faith en' I did,' said the messenger.
"What is he like ?"interrogated the giant.
"Faith Barney, avic! he's like anything nt
all but a mortal being."
"Ilow big is he ?".said - Barney, looking any

as big as the . old tower that fronts the door,
an' a head and shoulders on him like Father
11111urney*s bull, an' by all accounts
Barney began to feel rather uncomfortable
at tho-prspeet before him, and straightway
_went to consult his wife, so as to see what
would be' done in the event DM:is rival proving
to he such as the messenger had represented.
While they were thtis engaged, one of the
children eime.rturning in, and exclaimed,
" Daddy, come to the door and see the great
big man thiitsi r Coniing up the lii1l!"-
Barney peeped through the chinks, of the .
door, and to his great terror saw the monster.
Ore look was enough to satisfy him that
his messenger had not exaggerated his account
of him, and turning to his Wife he said,. -
" Shela, jewell l" ott alive, for sartin!—
Here conies the Scotch baist to driiin your
When Shela heard the approach of the com
ing foe, and saw herlord's utter inability to wage
war with one so far superior in strength and
size, she concluded - that it was - only by genie
piece of woman's wit that her husband could
escape frorrftlie affair without dishonor, and,
accordingly, rho gently lifted the child out of
-the cradle, and disposed it on the 'bed in the
inner room,. made the father get in its place,
and covering hint, up with the quilt, gently
seated herself and resumed lice work. After
a_favinonieuls.,injvalked the cattsdof_all the
disturbance and (remanded an interview' with
the giant. Sliela, after motioning. with her
hand for him to keep quiet, Walked gently a
cross the 1t or to where lie stood, and in an
under tone told him that Barney had gone ant.
to the Woods. The giant informed her that he
infended.waiting his return. .
"Very well," said Kiehl, "only don't make
a wept of noise, for the life that's in you, for
there's nothing makps him more furious than
to hear the child crying when he conies home."
'll.y this time the giant had seated himself
on a bench, and was quietly surveying the
apartment; but when his eye rested on the
cradle, , with a look of unutterable astonish
inent, Lc asked - what was Snit. „
"In it:" cried Shela,."don't :you see its the
child that'd--in it; Heaven help you if yeti

And so saying lie took to his heels, and no

the hills of his own country.

- The art of discovering water courses under
the Surface of the 'earth by means of a green
rod-newly-out -from-the peach ; -hazel-or-cherry--
tree, has been known in Europe for several .
years. It is said the disiovery was made in
'acrimony, but by whom is uncertain. Until a
very Into period it has been - considered an im
posture, and rank with the arts of magician's
and other vain pretenders to mysterious pow
ers. This opinion of the power of the ‘divi , -
ning rod' or magic wand,' as it has been term
ed, has undoubtedly arisen from the fact that
in the-hands of many persons the action of the
rod is wholly imperceptible, while in others
the attraction of the water, especially if it bo
near the surface and the veins large, is surpri
singly great. When the wand is of a brittle
nature the attractive power is so forcible as .
frequently to break it.
Brom the numerous experiments made in
France since the commencement of the pres
ent century, b
Y Thouvenel and-other men of
science, the claims of the divining rod 'are
found to rest on well-known -material powers.
The art of finding water by its means, is *ell
established and promises to be of great utility.
to our country. The theory explaining- the
phenomena of'the a magic wand,' supposes that
the water forms with the earth above it, and
the fluids' of the human body, a galvanic circle.
This circleis more or less perfect . as the stabs -
and condition of the body of the body of the
opeintoi ' -
conductor of the 'galvanic fluid. The human
body is one of the best conductors yet discov
ered, and weakly or debilitated persons are
-to be better conductors. thrin persons in
Sound health, and the attraction is greater
when the skin is wet, patticularly tho hands
and arms. Salt water, or a weak solution of
muriatic.acid aro the, best fluids for moistening
_the skin. iloeffW•will_bc increased if -the,
operator-be barefocired, his feet and handS
ing been previously wetted with either of the ,
aforesaid fluids, butifThe have silk gloves or
silk stockings on, the rod will not be suspend
ed_by-an electric, or in immediate contactwith
an electric no attraction will be felt, and
degree of attraction varies as any substances
lying between the water and the hand of the
operator are more orless adapted, to conluct
the galvanic fluid.
Stich ere some of the faets - atated by-writ - err
on tbc subject, but of the reality of the pow:
era attributed to the divining rod, we now need
no foieign authorities to. carry conviction to
every intelligent mind. iVe have in this city
sacral' operators;- men of the most unques
tionable character, whose powers have been..
tested by the severest scrutiny, and who have
1 never, failed,to cocivinoc the niest incredulous.'
The writer has known several stout unbelievers
theow'n into the most. ludicrous nredicementby
suddenly discovering tilitf themselves - were
1 mon the magic, and had tho - powers of 'the
hest water finders. The powers of the 'magic
wand' being natural powers, it, only requires
'tbarthif - natural - means - pe - prestraltrany';lndi.
vidual to produce the'neeessayy result.
Spy-person may discover whether or not he
has the powers of a water finder by the follow
ing experiment:—Let him cut a blench of:
twigs of :a length and thickness nearly equal,
and slender enough to,be quite flexible. If
formed correctly it will 'nearly represent the
letter V. Let him take the small ends of the
twigs, one in Lis right hand and one in' his
left, and hold it so that the Main branch, where
the fork begins, shall be uppermost and near
ly perpendicular to the earth, but a little
dining forward. Holding it in this podtion, , ,
let Lim..welk, slowly and. carefully over
ground wheie water is to be sought for,,nud if
the body of:the operator be a good dalvanic
conductor, the wand when over a vein of wa

principle of gravitation, water will always be
