Our records of lightning- phenomena ore
continued in all their fullness and minutia.
No case of de tth by lightning in a steam
boat cr railroad car, or lon telegraphic ope
rator, or in an iron vessel furnished with
metallic lightning conductors, has yet come
under our observation during the many
years covered by our record in our exten
sive field of research.
But two deaths by lightning have occur
red itt buildings furnished with metallic
conductors, one of these was at North
Prairie, Wisconsin, July 8, 1855, the oth
er at Walden, Vermont, July 18, 1857.
I have no doubt. could 1 have seen those
two buildings immediately after they had
been struck by lightning, that I. should
have found such traces of the lightning ns
would have explained the apparent failure
of the rods.
Those facts will allay the fears of many
persons who are in steamboats, railroad
cars, iron vessels or buildings, or in ves
sels or buildings furnished with lightning
conducters, during thunder storms.
A case of suffering came under my own
observation. A person in a house not fur
fished with rods was, during thunder
storms, so agitated and distressed that all
the members of the family in the house
were in attendance to soothe and quiet her
mind; but on the house being thorough
ly furnished wi:h metallic lightning con•
ductors, her sufferings during thunder
storms while in the house entirely ceased.
We recorded a few years since the death
of a lady at or near Poughkeepsie, from
alarm, during a thunder storm.
We nave made extensive inquiry of ship
masters as to the effect of the wind upon
ships' spars that had lightning conductors
upon them and have not beard of a single
instance in which the wind had carried a
way the spars of a vessel with u lightning
chain upon it.
The impression is very general that
steamboats arc never struck by lightning.
This is an error; steamboats have some
times been struck by lightning, but the da
mage was very trifling. The masts of
ocean steamers are liable to be struck by
We have a record of the lightning stri
king a piece of hot iron, that a blackanuth
held on an anvil •with his tongs. The red
hot iron gave out abundant ,c.tittliations.
The melted iron in Mr. Cooper's fdr•
nuns, at 'l'renton, New Jersey, was so
highly charged wills electricity during a
thunaler storm that it gave shccks to the
fireman, who was probing the hot iron with
an iron bar.
It is known to observing managers of
dairies that milk is sometime+ changed by
distant thunder; the brewer finds distant
thunder occasionally to stop fermentetion ;
and the butcher, when there is much light
ning, of a peculiar kind, sees the fresh
meat in his market stall become pm rid,
and exhibit a green coloring mutter upon
hs surface ; and if nurses and physicians
will notice they will see that the sick are
affected by thunder storms,
The Mammoth Cave of Kentucky is
free from lightning—thunder has never
been heard or lightning been seen from
w.thin this Cave. In ancient times, bef9re
lightning rods were in use, grottoes under
the water were made as a place of resort
for safety during thunder storms.
At the gtent Salines of Kanawha, where
inflammable gas rises in vest columns to
the height of 80 feet in the air, fears were
expressed that the gas might become igni
ted by lightning and the whole surface de
stroyed by volcanic aetian. No fears of
any such action need be apprehended, for
the gas is so covered with water that the
lightning with all its mighty powers, can
not pass through, unless furnished Wall a
covered conductor.

lifornia. in which my correspondents men

ges of temperature every GO minutes. On
ly a small number of thunder storms cool
the air.
Lightning rods can be erected at a very
small cost ; iron wire, of one-fourth to five
sixteenths of an inch in diameter, is suffi
dent for a lightning conductor; it requires
no other pointing than can he wade on a
grind stone or with a file. Such rods
cost less than one cent per foot. Each rod
should be in one entire piece.
Cold water should be freely thrown on
persons struck down by lightning. We
have the record of ret.uscitation on Staten
Island many years ago, after hours_of dren
ching with cold water.
Metal roofs add to the protection of a
house against lightning, but such rook for
greater safety, should he connected with
the earth by metallic rods.

Girls at Home.

Now it does not nece.sarily follo•v that
there shall be two classes of girls. The
right education will mtdify both a little,
and unite their characters in one. Girls

more than boys are Society would be
of little worth without girls. without we.

ry women should be home; her next should
relate to the refinement and well being of
society..—But in order that she may know
how to benefit and adorn home. Hence
all girl., rich and poor alike, should be
early instrnoted in all the duties and cares
of home, Front the cellar to the garret,
she should know all that is to be done.
From the kitchen to the parlor she should
be complete mistress. All the in tnests of
home should be familiar to her as house:

difference should pre'vent her from engag

will be to her a school more valuable than

The Heart and the Brain
The heart and the twain are %MIR Ily

the hunmn system ; and it will hardly be
credited, dust neither has in i self any or
gars of sensation, yet scientific men have
asseried that such is the case. he Lon-

The famous Dr Harvey examined, at

the Nlitrogotnery family who, to cone

heart that we refer our joys, our sorrows

ical violence by nn outwork of bones, it
is not invested with sensations which
could have contributed nothing to its pres

. Hardly any two Females kiss alike.—
There is as much variety in the manner of
doing it., as in the faces and menden of the
sex. Some delicate little creatures merely
give a eight brush of the lip. 'Phis is a
sad aggravation. We seem to be about to
"have a good time," but actually get no
thing. Others go into us like a hungry
man into a beef-steak, and seem to chew
up our countenances. This, which is not
a common case, is too much like the Can•
nibal Islands, and soon drives away a deli
cate lover. Others struggle like hens
when burying themselves in dry dirt. The
kiss is won by great exertions, and is not
worth as much as the trouble it costs.—
Now, we are in favor of a certain shyness
when a kiss is proposed, but it should not
be continued too long; and, when the fair
g ives in, let her administer the kiss with
warmth and energy. Let there be soul in
it. It she clo-es her eyes, and sighs deep
ly immediately after it, the effect is great
er. She sh,'uld be careful not to "spread"
the kiss, but give it as a humming bird
runs his bill into a honeysuckle, deep, but
delicately. There is much virtue in a kiss
when well delivered. We have had the
memory of one we received last us—.
Love vs. Shinplasters.
A young man in the Quaker City fell in
love with a lady; he paid his addresses to
her; he prevented her with rings, lockets
and other jewelry; growing more fervent
he put a fine edge on his attentions and
wound up by a proposal—to which the la
dy unfortunately (or fortunately) answered" The young man instituted suit be
fore Alderman Clarke for the recovery of
his jewelry and his unrequited affections.
The 'natter wits settled by the lady retur
ning the former and advancing 810 as an
equivalent for the latter. Verily we live
in a fast age. The papers abound in mar.
riages in which love does not seem to have
even been a component part. The above
instance is reducing flirtation to a system.
It any young lady is fond of lovers she
can have as many as she pleases, nod then
buy them off, when, like an old pair of
gloves. they get worn out. if young tn. n
like that risky kind of business of court
ship they can bring suit for the recovery of
their "gifts," when they wish to "close the
concern" and make sail arum a richer and
more radiant prize.
The following discription gives an ac
curate idea of th Atlantic Cable:
r•ln appearance, it much resembles the
wire ropes sometimes used for raising hea
vy weights, dumb waiters, &c. The "core
or conductor, which is the nerve of the
whole affair, is composed of seven thin
copper wires that are singly scarcely as
thick as so ordinary brass pia.—These
seven wires are twisted like a cord, so as
La add to their strength, and, at the same
time, to enable them to stretch wish the
untwisting of the outside or protecting
wires. This core is heavily coated with
go percha, and the latter is wrapped
with tarred yarn. Outside of this comes
the protecting wires which give strength
to the entire fabric, and protects the interi
or from damage. This covering is made
of the best wire, twisted up into cords,
and with eighteen cords, forming 'the out
side envelope. The entire thickness Of
the Cable is 11-16th of an inch in diam
eter. We are informed that the weight
of the cable is 1,869 pounds to the mile
The cable is strong enough to bear in wa
ter six miles of its own weight when sus.
pended vertically. The strands of pro
tecting wire are quite slender, but it is
colculated that in corroding under water,
they will unite chemically with the mud
in which they will lie, and will thus form
a concrete mass, which will not be liable
to be damaged.
Crab Eggs Hatohiug in a Boys Stom
The "local" of the Johnstown Echo is
responsible for the toughest yarn we have
read this season, It is as follows;
"A boy, ten or twe've years old, was
recently found exhausted, lying on the
towpath, noar Johnstown. He appeared
to be in a dying condition, and a physician
was immediately sent for, who promtly
administered a powerful purgative. In
due time the medicine had the desired ef
fect, and brought from the boy a double
handful of young crabs.—real bona fide
river or brook crabs, with claws, legs,
broad tails and all, The mother of the
boy explained the circumstance by stating
that her son was in the habit of spending
much of his time in the water, and while
diving he had swallowed a nest of crab
eggs, which had hatched in hie stomach.'

There is nothing in the world that we
think so mach of as we do of the women.
Our mother is a women—wife, sisters.
pretty cousins, are women; and the daugh
ters will be if (Heaven spare them!) they
live long enough. And there is a love of
women in general which we do not deny.
A fine magnificent specimen of the sex,
full of life end health, a ripe, rod cheek,
and flashing eye, is something that does
one good to look at as she illuminates the
humdrum sidewalks, and every day streets
A North River steamer, under full head
way, with colors flying, is rather a pretty
sight—rather stirring and inspiring; and
we pull up our tired nag to see her pass,
and admire the swell she cuts. Compar
atively, however, the steamer sinks into
insignificance, or some other very deep
water by the side of a well kept, well dress
ed woman. There is no rubbing it out;
women are the ornament, charm, blessing,
beauty, and bliss of life--.(mens life, we ;
mean, of course.) Any means that can
be devised for preserving them should be
publicly made known. They are differ
ent from any other kind of ftilit. You
cannot pickle them. You cannot do them
up in sugar and set them in a cold room,
with a paper soaked in brandy over their
mouths. Yau cannot put them up in cans
and seal them up airtight, without injur
ing their form and flavor.---Now, as men
are so dependant upon women for life's
choicest blessings, a proper mode of pre
serving them becomes of great moment,
and ire are sure that the public will thank
us for an inlallable receipt.
Have the feet well protected. then pay
the next attention to the chest. The chest
is the repository of the vital organs. There
abide the heart and lungs. It is from the
impressions made upon the organs through
the skin, that the shiver comes. It it na
tare's quake—the alarm bell--at the onset
of danger. A woman never shivers from
the effect of cold upon her limbs, or hands
or head; but let the cold strike through
her clothing on her chest, and off go her
teeth into a chatter and the whole organ
ise, is in a commotion. One sudden and
severe impression of cold upon the chest
has slain its tens of thousands.-.-There.
fore, while the feet are well looked after
never forget the cheat. These points at
tended to, the natural connections of the
dress will supply the rest, and the woman
is ready for the air. Now let her visit
her neighbors, go shopping, call upon the
poor and walk for the good of it, for the
fun of it.
Keep away from the stove or register.
Air that is dry or burnt, mole or less char
ged with gasses evolved by the fuel, is
poison Go up stairs and make the beds
with mittens on. Fly around the house
like mad, and ventilate the rooms. Don't
sit pent up in a single room with double
windows. Fruit will not retain its full
form and flavor in air-tight cans; neither
will women. They need air. If the
skive; comes on during these operations,
go directly and put on something more
about the chest.
Again, we do not live in dark rooms.—
Light lades the carpet, but it feeds the
flower. No liviug P initial or vegetable
can enjoy health in darkness. Light is al
most as necessary as air, and a brown tan
is far preferable, even as a matter of beauty
to a sickly paleness of complexion.
Thus much in regard to the physical
means for preservation, There are moral
means no less important. Every woman
should be married to an excellent man.
Marriage, it is true, brings care and wear,
but it is the ring that is worn that keeps
bright, and the watch that lies still and un
wound that gets out of order, The sweet
sympathies evolved in relation to the fami
ly, the new energies developed by new re
aponsibilities, the new compensation for
all outlays of strength, brings about a de.
lightful play of the heart and intellect
which, in their reaction upon the body,
produces an elect tha: is nothing less than
preservation. Then, there is a higher mor
al power than this---one which we speak
of soberly and honestly. No one is com
pletely armed against the encroaching ills
of life, who has in the heart no place for
religion, The calmness, the patience, an i
the joy and hope that are in possession of
that woman whose heart it right in ts, high
eat relation can never fail to preserve and
heighten every personal power and charm
that she possesses.
There ! you have the receipt. Some of
it is In sportive form; but it is not the less
sober truth. It has within it th. cure for
