    Conditions of Life," and occupies twenty-five
chapters. In these chapters he treats of food,
digestion, heat, absorption, the blood, respira
tion, secretion, excretion, decay and nutrition;
the nervous system, the brain, the voice, hearing,
vision, of cerebral sight or inverse vision, of the
senses of touch, taste, &c., and of animal motion.
The second book is occupied with Dynami
cal physiology, and contains eight chapters.
Here the leading subjects are—tho principle of
organization; the influence of physical Agents on
the organic series; the organic cell; reproduc
tion and development; the growth of man; sleep
and death ; the influence of physical agents on
the aspect and form of man, and on his intel
lectual qualities; and closing with a discussion
on Social Mechanics. We have no doubt but
that this volume will speedily take a high place in
all our Medical Colleges, and in all Academies
and Institutes where Physiology occupies a place
in the course of instruction.

This is a wonderfully attractive book. From
y to day we hear of the discoveries of men of
ence, but we often fail to collect them and lo
te them so as to enable us to construct a chart or
dare of the territory that has been gained to
uman knowledge from the vast unknown. The
•regress of astronomical discovery was never
.• ore rapid than during the last fifteen years.
" ithin this period, the number of known mem
. ers of the planetary system has been more than
; oubled. A planet of vast dimensions has been
dded to our system; thirtysix new asteroids
aye been discovered; four new satellites have
een detected; and a new ring has been added to
;aturn. The volume which treats of these sub
ects, and which has arrived at a third edition.
nd whioh is from the pen of Dr. Loomis, carries
ith it ample guarantee of its merits.

vernor Gssav's arrival has inaugerated quite
tnge in affairs. He has issued his Pro()lama
exhorting to an obedience to the laws till
may be time to alter and amend them, and
announced hie determination to preserve the
of the Territory, and protect Me settlers in their
le general election is to take place on the
of Oct., when a new Legislature is to be oho
; and we doubt not but that the Governor, so
as he has the power, will endeavor to conduct
irs in equity. Thus far all things appear fa
'lle to the protection of the settlers in their
of property, and in the choice of their own
oth3ers, and the making and executing of the
laws by which they shall be governed.
The Governor, however, will have a difficult
task to perform. There are the feuds and ani
mosities of two hostile parties, who have been en
gaged in deadly strife, and whose determination,
each, to possess the seat of power is resolute.
Then there is the fact which we see stated, , that
the militia are to be on the election ground,
armed ; also, that Gen. Smith, as the U. S. officer,
hro the command of the militia. And, worst of
all for ease of management and the use of the
elective franchise by all the acttlers, there is a law
of the former Legislature, providing that every
man who would vote must, if required, swear that
"Will support the Constitution of the United States, and
that hr will support and sustain the provisions of the Act
entitled, 'An Act to organise the Territories of Nebraska
and' Kansas,' and the provisions of the law of the United
States, commonly known as the 'Fugitive Slave Law."
Can the settlers all take such an oath? And
must Gov. Geary, by an armed force, prohibit
those from -voting who decline the oath?
And again, he will find a difficulty in keeping
the election pure—that is, in preventing any from
voting who may not be bona fide settlers; because
it is provided,
"Km 19. Whenever any person shall offer to vote, he
shall be presumed to be entitled to vote.
"Sac. 20. Whenever any plrson offers to vote, his vote
may he challenged by one of the judges, or by any voter ;
and the judges of the election may examine him touching
hie right to vote; and If so examined, no evidence to contra
dict shall be received."
To enforce these laws, and, at the same time,
to preserve the peace, and : to secure to all settlers
their rights, and to allow non ebutsettlers to vote,
will be a difficulty not easily to be surmounted.
A dispatch from St. Louis, under date of 20th,

for his wisdom and firmness ; for his justice and
moderation in our foreign relations; for his calm,
pacific temperament, well becoming the head of a
great and enlightened government; for his devo

inflexibility in executing the laws ; but beyond all
these attributes, in possessing the transcendent

Pnonts OF GRAPES.—In the neighborheod of
Cincinnati there are more than two thousand
acres in grapes. The profits per acre average, ta
king one year with another, about $3OO per acre.
Much, of course, depends on management. The
cost of planting ranges from $lOO to $3OO per
acre. The expenses with ordinary land need not
exceed $l5O per acre.

Ms. DALLAS.-At the annual festival of t e
Cutler's Association, Mr. Dallas, in responding
a complimentary notice of our country, said:
As perhaps not altogether inappropriate to the
occasion; of the numberless advantages of this\
progressive age, let me for a moment allure your
attention to a single one, perhaps the latest from
which, I think, must flow many consequences of
greater moment to the social relationship between •
our two nations, than can at first be perceived.
Let us hope that these consequences, as most pre
dict, will be mutually advantageous and useful.
You have probably heard already that the irre
pressible and insatiable cupidity of my country
men—[laughter]—is about undertaking a daring
exploit of annexation—[laughter]—an annexa
tion that will at once embrace these islands—
[laughter]—and, moving with a march as rapid
as civilization, ultimately include all Europe, Asia
and Africa. [Renewed laughter.] I have actu
ally in my possession a piece of the chain recent
ly forged to bind these three Eastern venerable
continents to the new one of Columbia. [Cheers.]
We see in the far West that you possess and accu
mulate treasures which we covet and must have
—[laughter]—the hourly inventions of your
genius—[hear, hear, •hear]—the discoveries of
your explorers on earth, or in the heavens ; the
numberless additions made to the comfort and
happiness of the human race by your hundreds
of millions; the schemes of your commerce;
every step onward or retrograde in morals, in
jurisprudence, in, the press, even in finance, in the
stocks—we must have them. [Cheers anlaugh
ter.] We must have them ; we must have.them
as quickly as yourselves. [Cheers.] We are
aware that there is not in the wing of the carrier
pigeons, strength enough for this; that steam is
too wretchedly slow for our impatience; subma
rine electric cable, with one grapple at St. John's,
Newfoundland, and the other at Valencia, in Ire
land, resting for one thousand seven hundred
miles securely and indestructibly in the current
less depthe of the Atlantic, that will realize all
our aims of ambition,
and rivet an annexation
more wonderful, and infinitely more praiseworthy
—[cheers]—rivet an annexation more wonderful,
at all events, than that of Texas or of Cuba.
[Cheers.] I shou:d not . have indulged, Gentle
men, in this light vein, to beguile you for a few
moments, were I not perfectly satisfied that the
astounding fact from which it has sprung is no
longer in doubt. Our two countries—the &min
ions of her Rritannic Majesty and, the United
Statekof America—though separated by a stormy
sea, several thousands of miles in width, will, in
•the course of the coming year, he drawn, so to
speak; by the magical aid of machinery and sci
ence, within conversational distance of each other.
The preliminary soundings were perfected a few
days ago, from the terminus of one end to the
other of this great artery of sympathy and of
thought. I wish it were in operation. And why?
Because, gentlemen, I would instantly illustrate
its. most glorious adaptation to the promotion of
goodwill among men in distant nations—[cheers]
—by sending your toasts to my compatriots, and
giving you, before you rose from this table, a
full•hearted American response. [Loud cheers.]
The Church.
There is a deep anxiety felt in all circles of the
Established Church to know how Lord Palmerston
is likely to dispose of the enormous ecclesiastical
patronage now. in his gift. All sorts of surmises
are afloat upon the subject. We may venture to
suggest that the Premier is not likely to give any
hint of his intentions; as to the new Bishops of
London or of Durham at least, until these Sees
are fairly vacant, which will not be till the end
of this mouth. If the colonial appointment to
the bishopric' f Graham's Town may be taken as
an earnest of the views of the Cabinet, then, we
may infer that Evangelism is still in the ascend
ant, as the new Bishop, the Rev. Henry Cotter
hill, Principal of Brighton College, is a distin
guished member of that party.

In his notes of an Autumnal tour through the
North-Western counties, Mr. John Lnmb, the
Quaker correspondent of the Belfast Whig, says :
" There is no doubt that our country is vastly im
proving. The people are better clad and better
fed. The country is much better cultivated than
it was a dozen years ago. The gaols are nearly
empty, and the poor•houses not half-filled ; some
Of the masters complain that they cannot muster
as much healthy labor as will cultivate the gar
delis and grounds round the work-houses. The
towns are better paved, swept, and lighted, and
many an old, unsightly thatched house has been
pulled down to make room for a respectable slated
one; 'yet there is abundance of room for further
improvements in all these respects. Few towns
in Ireland have improved so much in appea'ranoe
during the last ten years as Sligo. The wheat
crop is also likely to be a very good one; it is
thicker on the ground than last year, but some
farmers tell me it is not as well headed."
Tu 'key.
It is stated in a Constantinople letter in the
Ilfoniteur del'Armee, that the fortifications of Kars
are to be re-established. and that it is to be made
a fortified place of the first order. Works are
also to be undertaken to complete the fortifica
tions of Erzeroum and Van. These three places
belong to Turkish Armenia. and form the line of
defence of the Asiatic frontiers of the empire on
the side of Persia and of the Russian possessions.
• "It is positively stated," says the Pays, " that
the ports of Reni, Ismail, and Kilia, situated on
the Danube, and restored to Moldavia in virtue of
the treaty of Paris, are about to be declared free
ports. These places, before they were in-posses
sion of Russia, enjoyed the most extensive com
mercial franchises, and they acquired therefrom
a degree of prosperity which they have never
since recovered.",
A Valuable Family Medicine.
So celebrated has Dr. M'Lane's Vermifuge be
come, that it is regarded as the only specific cure
for worms. Families should never be without a
supply of it. At this season particularly, when
worms are so troublesome and frequently fatal
among children, parents should be watchful; and
on the first appearance of those distressing symp
toms - which warn tta of their presence, at once
apply this powerful and efficacious remedy. We
are 'confident that it only requires a trial, to con
vince all that it richly merits the praises that
have been lavished upon it, It is safe and infalli
ble. Volumes of certificates can be produced,
showing its great metcal virtues. •
Mir Purchasers win be careful to ask for Dr.
M'Lane's Celebrated Vermifuge, manufactured by
Fleming Bros., of Pittsburgh, Pa. All other
Vermifuges in comparison are worthless. Dr.

Called hence by early doom,
Just came to show how sweet a flower
In Paradise will bloom. '
DIED—On the Bth Insk,. in the 15th year of her age, at the
residence of her mother, near Newark, Del, Miss ItEnema
Calmly and peacefully she departed, resting upon Jesus.
Sweet angel slain', thou art gone
To the far-off spirit laud;
On wings seraphic thou halt flown
Away from our sister band.
Strong were the tendrils of our hearts,
Entwined about thine own ;
But 't was our Saviour bade us part ;
Re spake, and thou art gone,
But one year since. and thy young face
With health's bright beauty flushed ;
Now thou art cold in death's embrace,
And thy glad voice is hushed.
As when the sunbeams of the morn
Play o'er the dewy earth,
And hearts rejoicing in the dawn,
Are filled with gladsome mirth.
Then, on the Western sky at even',
The dark and stormy clouds
Roll forth deep shadows o'er the land;
And night the'earth enshrouds.
So thou, npon our life's bright day,
Smiled as the morning rose,
But melted with the eve away;
And dark shall be its close
Ah, no! away above the skies,
I bear a voice from fsr,
"Weep not! in Jesus' diadem.
There shines another star."
Dom—ln Knoxville, Jefferson County, Ohio, Aug. diet,
from an injury received by the bursting of the cylinder of
a threshing machine, DeNun S. AUXANDCIi aged 21 years.
The deceased was the son of James Alexander, Req., long
and favorably known aaa Ruling Hider in the Presbyterian
church of Island Creek. He was a young man, of amiable
disposition, kind and affectionate to his parents, and beloved
and highly esteemed by all who knew him. His death was
a painful casualty, and is a sore bereavement to his aged
parents and family, and one of those dispensations of Prov
idence which should teach us the importance of being al
ways " ready, for in such an hour as ye think not, the Son
of Man corneth.'!
He left home on Friday, at noon, intending to*return be

when the accident occurred, which Famed hie deatii. Thus,

his coiripanioos, of the-uncertainty of life, and the necessity
of a preparation for (oath.

Iltsn--Angust 23, near Chestnut Level, Lancaster County,
Pa., Mrs. MART lawnvs, in the 73d year of her age.
Mrs. Irwin° was the daughter of John Reed, Esq ,aßuling
Eiderin the Presbyterian church of Chestnut Level. In the
morning of her days, she embraced the Fallout., and united
with the Church of Christ. Few who have named the
name of Christ have more fully exemplified throughout a
long life, the beautiful graces o f a child of God. Her
meek and humble spirit; her miff irmly consistent walk
and conversation; and her untiring devotion to the cause of
her Redeemer, secured for her a large plaman the confidence
and affections of (find's people. For the last twenty years,
it his been the privilege .of the writer to enjoy an uninter
rupted end intimste asquainterice with the subject of this
notice, and'he can truly testify, that under all circumstan
ces, whether.% prosperity or adversity, itysickuess or in
health, she was always the same meek, humble, devoted
Christian. It will be no unexpected announcement to die•
taut friends and kindred, that her latter end was peace,
oftentimes assuring those who ministered around her sick
bed, during a protracted and painful illness, that she telt
and enjoyed the Saviour's presence and Supporting grace.
Death, for her, had no sting; the grave will lutve no victory.

the many testimonies borne in favor of the former portions
of the work:
"These volumes display in a very eminent degree
the excellences which should appear in a condensed
commentary on any portion of the Word of God. They
embrace the marrow of all the beat writers and Gins
mentators on. the .4ospels. The labor which they must
have cost is immense, and could only have been devoted by
one whose heart was in the work• The "Harmony of the
Gospels, which is interwoven in the Notes, and the wonder•
ful condensation c f facts and expositions, render both vol.
owes extremely valuablo."—Presb. Banner.

interpretation, we think it superior to Barnes, and would
advise its use in our Bible Olusses."—Christian Intel gcneer.
" Admirably adapted to the Babbath School, Bibb; Class,
and Fondly,. with this advantaue of preceding works, that it
has appropriated the results of the latest inquiries on sari
ens subjects connected with Biblical Litemture."—Purilan.
"The anther, by his learning, taste. an skill, is eminent
ly qualified for the responsible work of en annotator on
the Holy Scriptures. In his Notes, be combines the mar
row and fatness of many commentators with his own ideas,
and associates his cemments with a Harmony of the Gospels,
in a very impressive manner."—Zion's Herald.
"The Notes ate evidently prepared with great care, and
fully illustrate the textto the comprehension, welled almost
saiii.of the least attentive reader. We regard these volumes
as an important auxiliary to the study of the Gospels, and
a valuable addition to nor Biblical Literature designed for

elderly gentleman, accustomed to the raising nod
managing of Bees, has discovered a method by which be. or
any one, can prevent bees from going away. It is truly
amusing to be able to bring down a stray swarm that 3ou
may bear passing Over your bead. Or if your bees manifest
a dispositien, when coming out of the hive, to fly ciif nith
out lighting, you can make them light. Or if they attempt
to go away after they have been hived, you can make them
swarm on your hat. if you wish. It is no trifling matter,
but truly useful and amusing, and every one that is con uected
with the raising of bees, should be acquainted with.
