the greatest discovery of the ago for restoring

WOOD'S HAIR DYB.—This admirable ar
ticle is rapidly improving the hair. No article
of a similar kind, now before the public, enjoys
a better reputation as a restorative and invigo
rating hair tonic. Its peculiar chemical quail
ties have a beneficial ()fleet upon the growth and
chatacter of the hair, giving a silky and glossy
texture to that which was formerly of a coerce
and dry nature. It has, also, we understand, a
tendency to preserve the youthful color and ap
pearance of the hair, and destroying or counter
acting the effects of old age. With such recom
mendations in its favor, we hardlyperceive how
any lady or gentleman should be without so val
uable an adjunct to their toilet.

There was IL lovely market girl,
Wlto had a market cart,
Who looked open a hotelier's boy,
And woo his verdant heart.
His eyes was dark as blots of
Her hazel eyes was blue,
His hair W. or is chestnut brown,

He was a tall and manly youth,
A very bands ;ma feller.
His ehristian name was Pater 13rou ,
And ber's was Isabella.
lie used to squint across at her,
When she was shelling peas,
And think that every customer
Should go down on his knees.
He'd pick her out the finest bits,
Of meat intuit sweet and tender,
And ho would rather talk to her
Than go upon a bender.
Imagine then this butcher's woe,
One sunny market day,
To find that Jsabella Jones
Front market stayed away.
And the next week he heard a tale
Of grief most bitter,!earrted
By Mr. Jones to Mr. Smith,
That Isabel was married.
He tore his hair, he raved and swore
He stamped with both his feet,
He screamed with passion as ho tore
Both up and down the street.
He vowed he'd something desperate do,
He would not stop to think,
But rushed into a neighboring store,
And Olt re he—"took a drink,"

"Now, sir, I avant you to pay your bill,
and you must. I've asked you for it of
ten enough ; and I tell you now, that you
don't leave my house till you pay it !"
"Good !" said his lodger ; "just put that
in writing; make a regular agreement of
it; stay with you as long as I live."

of wood foe the factory company. Having
piled his wood to the satisfaction of the

of green grass, brought all the way from
home for that purpose, and then having in
vested a portion of his wood proceeds in
root beer and gingerbread at Hain's, he
started to see the -city"—filling his coun•
tenance rapidly with gingerbread and

He reviewed the iron foundry and ma

The clattering machinery and the move

the moment but Virg of an inquiring
turn of mind, and seeing much that calcu
lated to perplex one whose observations in
' mechanics had been mostly confined to
threshing machines and corn shellert•. he
began to push vigorous inquiries in all di

"breakers" and .•finishers," just as the
card stripper wan ruing through the oper
anon, technically termed 'stripping flits "
Iu doing this, the largo cylinder of the
card is exposed to view and is seen revol
ving with a very pretty buzz. Not con
templating the "poetry of notion" at a
safe distance, he must needs introduce hint
view. This movement brought his nether
habiliments in clangorous proximity to the

•She don't do anyt. ing eke,' reepondod
the stripper, •hat you must he very careful
ho v you move around amongst this hard
ware. 'Twas only last week, sir. that a
promising young loan from Minot, a ant

to that curd, sir, and before any a,iAtance
could reach'hitn, he was run through. and
manufactured in,o No. 16 -auper extra'
cotton wrap yarn.'
I s.wm.w ! 1 bTeve you're jokin'!'
,tuttered Jonathan. •
'Fact, sir,' continued the stripper, 'and
Iris aiscoasolato mother came down two
days ago, and got five bunches of that yarn
as Melancholy relics.'
, By the mighty ! that can't be true
said Jonathan.
• 'Fact, sir, fact ! and each of his fellow
students purchased a skein apiece, to be
set its lockets and worn in remembrance of
departed worth.'
'ls that the treuth, now ? Was he roil.
ly !we Med, spun and sot in lockets ?'
A sense of personal danger here shot
across, our hero's mind, and he began to
retreat precipitately without waiting for an
answer. There was not much • room to
spare betwixt himself and the card behind.
Another step backward completed the cer
emony of introducion. His untvhispera
bles being of largo calibre, the proce is of
snarling them up into a hard knot was no
ways slow. Jonathan gave tongue instnn•

The gearing by this time had wound
'him up so that he was obliged to stand on
tiptoe. His hands were revolving vlgnr.
ously behind him, though he dared not
venturu them too near the seat of war.--
The card stripper ran off the belt, bat the
mornentutn cylinder kept revolving ned the
green one, supposing it in full operation,
burst out anew.

The card was stopped at last, but Jona

him . , lan Othello, be ''wee not easily

the whole of the contested territory :hat
he was finally released.

overseer, entering.
'Nothing, sir, only "stripping flatts,' an
swered the stripper.
Jonathan, not caring 'to resume his 'pur

pair of overhauls aver' charitably loaned
him, and he started with his steers on a

The Tides•
Minty persons still seem to be much
perplexed with the phenomena of the ti
des. They cannot understand why they
are higher at one time than another. nor
why they rise to the height of sixty feet
in the Bay of Fumlny, forty feet in the
ports o f Bristol, England, and St. Melo,
France, and only rise to a few feet in
height in New York and other places,
whila they are scarcely perceptible in the
Kiltic and other sees. Descartes was the
first philosopher who advanced the theory
that the tides were due to the influence
of the moon. but Newton was the first to
work out the problem and discover the
true cause. Descartes believed that the
to eon acted no the waters of the ocean by
pressure; Newton demonstreted that it ac
ted upon the ocean by attraction ; that,
tastes d of pressing the waters, it rolled
them up ditectly . unarm it, and also'nt its
antipodes nt the same time, thou producing
the two tides every day. The titles are
caused by the ntiroction of both the sun
and moon, if this earth had no moon. the
attraction of the sun would produce two
tides every day. but their ebb and flow
' would take plane ns the same hours reg
ularly, not varying as they do now; these
tides would also be much smaller than
those of the moon. Although the mass of
I the sun is far greater than that of the moon
I and although attraction is in proportion to
the mess, yet it is always inversely as the
square of the distance.—As the sun, there
lore, is four hundred times distant than
than the moon, the attraction of the wa
ters of the sea towards the sun is found to
be about three times less than that of the
moon; and the tides produced by the sun
would therefore be three times less than
those of the moon. There are only two
ocean tides. the lunar and solar, but the
killer is absorbed by the former, which is
wholly observable in respect to time, the
solar only as it influences the height of
the tidal wave. That caused by the moon
in three times greeter than that of the sun,
and it follows the n eon's motion around
t he earth, rising and falling every twelve
hours, and each succeeoing tide later I.y
three quarters of an hour than the drece
ding one, exactly in accordance with the
position of the moon, or as it is commonly
called, "its rising and Bening." Some
times there are very low and at other ti
mes very high tides-• that is, their height
i 3 not uniform. 'Phi: is caused by the po
sition of the sun and moon relative to the
earth. Thus, as at the time of the New
eon the sun end the moon being to the
',IMP parts of the heavens - the tides pro
duced in the ocean are then the highest,
because they are equal to the sum of the
two tiles:- i soar and solar; This should
also take place nt the time of the full
in .on, when our satellite is opposite the
sun, the attractive force being equal and
opposite in producieg the tidal wave.
This is found to be the case. The titles
ore gfeater nt new and full moon thin) at
!first and last quarters, as during the latter
periods the attraction of the sun not actin g
in unison with that of the moon tends to
lower the tides.
Reasoning fron'this data it will natu
rally be inferred that whew the the sur.
and moon are equally distant from the
two poles of the globe, such as at times of
the equinox., in March and September,
thir tides would be greatest. This is also
found to be the case, thus demonstrating
the sea are due to the attraction of the
inoon sport the waters of the ocean. The
difference in the heights of the tides at va
rio is places is due to the peculiar forma
tion of the sea coasts. They are very
higli in the Bay of Fdriday, because en
immense quantity of water is piled in a
tvidc•mmrthed sorrow space, in the same
instiller that a certain quantity of water
will rise higher in a narro w thaw a wide
channel. Some have advanced popular
belief against the lunar influences causing
tide namely, that the is a
tideless sea. This is net strictly true. -'rho
oceta tides, owing to the norrow passage
Into the :Mediterranean at Gibralter scarce
ly affect this sea, but for all this, there are
tides obiervable at some places. At Vi
enna they sometimes rise to two feet, and
in the Faro of Alessena to twenty inches.
