Water is paradoxical and contradictory
in its outward and apparent qualities. It
gives way, when permitted to do so, with
marvellous faeililv. The lihtest anil
! lightest sub.-tance dropped upon it is ad
i milted to its embrace, in strict accordance
! and in proportion to its deserts and den
) sitj-. So small a substance as a grain of
' sand ir- allowed to find its natural place at
I the lx'ttoin. A hydrostatic or water-bed
; is the eusi.-st of couclns, so easy, that
j soroe invalids cannot boar its excessive
pliancy and compit te sidaption to the torrn
oT the sbeper. Hence the notion of Des-o-ates
and others that to explain the phe
noiHena of water, its ultimate particles
iuut be oblong, smooth and flexible, lying
one upon another, like cel. in a tub.
Int water of a given temperature, con
lined, is of astounding hardness ; it is as
good as incompressible at that temjcra
ture ; for what is a reduction of from
forly-four to fifty-eight miilioiieth parts of
I its volume on !er a pressure equal to that

winuaer-, who, intending to

on Li ir stomachs i:. stead.
1'ure water is at its greatest density, or
i heaviest and tno.-t conti acted, at four de-
gr.-es, ci.-niigradc (to avoid (r:ictions,) or
exactly ibii'iy-iiiue degrees of Fahrenheit,
j that is at seven degrees above the freezing
! point : but if the tenqvratare changes,
! cither way, the wa'er expands. "From
; the maximum density up to the boiling
I t.oiat, the expansion amounts to the four
! hundredth part of its volume a mere
; nothing;. If it cool Ix-low its maximum
1 density, it still expands up to the freezing
! i-oiut. Consequently water which is near
I the point of freezing is lighter than water
that is only just a trifle warmer. It,
i therefore, rises and floats on the surface,
I allowing the warmer stratum of water to
j 1 -livers nnd lakes., therefore, freeze from
the top downward (which would not hap
pen were the density of water to continue
to increase with increasing cold,) and the
fish and water weeds remain uninjured.
W ere the case otherwise than it is if our
ft reams and pinls froze from the bottom
in long continued frosts, they would be
come solid blocks of ice ; aquatic plants
: and animals would peri-h ; and, even in
cases ot partial lieezing, the thaw and the
return to a normal state of things would
be much more tardy than under existing
circumstances. Water still further cx
panus at its conversion into ice, but with
that we have nothing to do. Ice is not
water, and with water alone we are deal
ing at present.
Colder than the freezing point water is
ice; hotter tl tan the boiling Mint water
is steam.. Hut not long since the Count
Henri Kussel, after encountering fifty de
grees of cold in Asiatic Siberia and
mercury freezes at forty-eight degrees
had to bear fifty degrees of heat in Aus
tralia. When we remember that water
evaporates rapidly at a temperature far
below the boiling point, we see at once
what a transitory, fleeting, changeful
thing it is. While we are looking at it,
it is going; before we can seize it, it slips
through our lingers. Indeed, according
to loyle and others, water is a crystal
melting at a low temperature, whose nor
mal condition is that of ice : in other
words, water is an unnatural state of ice ;
whenever it is not, it ought to be Tee.
Heat dissolves ice into water just as it
dissolves butter into oil. liutter and ice,
nevertheless, are the proper forms for those
liquids to apjwar in.
Pure water is protoxide of hydrogen.
It is hydrogen rusted, and that thoroughly
and completely, as much as iron rust is
oxide of iron; only the rusting is done
instantaneously instead of gradually. Here
again we have two separate paradoxes in
ne "Firstly hydrogen is the lightest
form of matter known, except the either
which we. don't know. Two volumes
of this lightest pa combined with one
volume of oxygen- a gas only a.tiitle
heavier than air form a fluid whose
weight we have just been wondering at.
Secondly, oxygen is eminently the sustain
er of conbustion, tbc.hfe and soul of fire ;
atnl hydrogen is the combustion which
illuminates our cities, warms our apart
ments, cooks our fod, and kills us by ill
timed explosions. And yet these two to
gether constitute the agent which we ditily
employ, on the smallest an I the largest
scale to extinguish lire! Verily there are
more things in lenivcn an i earth than were

A Coitlldi'sicc Oiwrator Ancstiil

From the Albany Kuicktrbot 'kcrj
One of the best things that we have
heat d of lately was revealed yesterday.
We relish it the more because a mere
stripling of a youths who represented him
self as a sou of A. T. Stewart, the mer
chant prince of New-Y ork, won the good
will of these well-known New-Yorkers,
whose friendship he had enlisted after
short acquaintance, by his gentlemanly
demeanor and good graces. It appears
that for some ten days post the young
man has been stopping at the Stanwix.
He did represent himself to the proprie
tor as the son of A. T. Stewart, and on
that name secured one of the best rooms
in the house. People may say " what's
in a name," but we say there is everything
in a name, as this case proves. Here was
a thief who assumed th.; name of a mill
ioniare, and was received and entertained
accordingly. He was a perfect little
blood, and we are informed that he was
winning the esteem and affections of many
ladies stopping at the house. In fact he
went so far as to make love to some of
them, and one became enamored, not of
his appearance or exhibition of money,
but his name ; for his appearance was by
no means attractive, and, as for money,
he did not have a cent. He told tiie
lady his name was Stewart, but she did
not believe him, and while in conversa
tion with one of her gentlemen acquaint
ances in the parlor, Wednesday evening,
enlisted his scrv ices to find out who the
young gent really wae. The gentleman
acquaintance was one of the New-Yorkers
referred to above. In attempting to
find out who the young gent was, for his
lady friend, the New-Yorker became inti
mate. He introduced his friends, and all
started oil' together on a regular lark.
When they returned to the house, the
New-Yorkers, among whom were Tho's
CI. F'inn and James P. Abbott, inviting
young Stewart to room with them during
the night. Y'oung Stewart consented, not
withstanding he had one of the Iie.-t rooms
in the house. They all retired, and young
Stewart waU-hed the movements of his
v ictims closely. He was on the Steal
he was a regular hotel thief in disguise.
One of the gentlemen w ho slept in the
room, Noah F Cogswell, had the pre
caution to take his wallet, containing
niii' tv dollars, from his pants pocket and
place ii under his pillow. During the
night, however, young Stewart arose, and
abstracted a twenty-dollar greenback from
each of the pockets of Finn and Abbott. '
.Mason heard coi:sid--rable mus-iag in the (
i.'ght, as if persons were dropping on the
tl ior. He spoke of it yesterdav luornin-j:, ;
I ina an 1 Abbott examined th ir pock- ;
ets. and each found h'.ms'lf twenty dollar.-
poorer than when he ntirid the night j
before. For the first time these New-,
Vol k ii' :itiemei were struck with the J
tine chai aetcr of their g i--t. Policeman
Chile '.s called in, and young Stewart j
was hauled over. I'pon him was f.mnd '
the nii.--i:.n prop it v. He admitted the 1
l.ircer.v. and said that he .-aw Mason put j
his pock it book under his head, and was
satisfied he could get nothing there. On
Im 'uu arranged he gave bis name as Her
man Poppt 11 h.nuss en a f(od name for a
foreign prince, but a mighty bad one for
a New-York prince. On learning his
true character all the boarders at the
house were astonished, and none more so
than the New-York lady, who set her
New-York friend to enquire who her new
acquaintance might be.- The case was
fullv investigated, when Stewart, alias
Popi enhausscn, was sent to jail. His
crime is only petty larceny, there being
two thefts. It is a penitentiary efl'ence.
