The 'Court, last week, granted an Neiman",
restraining the Mayor and Councils of Pittsburgh
from impeding the Pittsburgh, Ft.. Wayne as
Chicago Railroad Company in laying the treat of
their road norms Penn Street. Under this decis-
Mon the Company went to work immediately; and
now that road connects with the PenniyiVania
road, at the Depot oe the latter, on llbert7
Street ; greatly to the convenience and rejoicing
of travelers and shippers of freight.
Congress is still occupied, almost exclusively,
on Kaneas Affairs. The discussions embrace
some very important social principles, principles
well worthy the attention of the National Legis
lature, and of the nation itself; but they are
conducted so much in the way of partizanship,
and are mingled with so much that is the reverse
of edifying, that reports mey well be left to the
political journals. But little of importance has
been doue, in either House, for some time.

The British Possessions on our Ncirth are of
vast extent. The people are hardy, intelligent,
industrious, enterprising—just like ourselves;
being of the same stook, and raised under-sub
stantially the same Institutions. There has been
a little said about annexing them to the United
States, but far more about their becoming an in
dependent nation. The former thought can hard
ly be entertained by reasonable men ; the latter
contemplates an event which is desiraple, planet.
ble, and probable. •
An effort Is now being made to unite all the Brit
ish. American Colonies in a confederacy. Cora-,
missioners from Nova Scotia have conferred with
the Imperial Government on the subject of the
union, and have been informed that Her Majesty
would be guided by the desires of the Colonies;
and Nova Scotia has accordingly opened nego
tiations with the other Provinces. This certain
ly looks like preparing the way for a united inde
pendence—an event which it is thought that
Crest Britain would not strenuously resist. She
has nothing to lose, for the Colonies sdd nothing
directly to her treasury; and for purposes of
trade they would be quite as valuable if they
were an independent people.
The six Provinces and three Territories are as
follows :

Here is an extent of territory nearly equal to
that of the 'United States. The land and climate
are far inferior to ours, on the whole; but still
there is much good soil, and very great facilities
for trade. The country extends from ocean to

great and valuable. It has extensive railroads.

Funotione of the Lungs.
Letter No. 4
In our last letter we oonsiderefbrietly the
Anatomy of the Lunge, and It was shown that the
use of the Inhaling Tube and other Pleasures for
keeping them fully inflated, is literally of vital
importance both in disease and health.
We shalt now consider the functions or ,naes of
the Lungs, in view of which the necessity of fully
developing them, and of keeping them so, will be
more strikingly apparent;
The office or function of the lungs is to give to
the system its power of action. The manner in
which they do this may be imperfectly explained
as follows: The lining membrane of the innumer
able Mr cells into which the lung's are divided
presents an aggregate surface of many square
feet. Upon this surface is thrown the used blood
exhausted of oxygen and darkly purpled with
carbon and other effete matter which it brings
from alt parte of our bodies through the veins,
and bare we inhale the air upon it, which receives
its carbon and effete matter in the form of vapor,
and at the same time gives it a fresh supply of
oxygen when it.enters the arteries and in a bright
red current courses to every part of the system,
bearing to every tissue the very elements of life
and action.
Thus do the lungs give energy to the system by
effecting two results with every breath we draw,
via : They give to the blood, from the air inhaled,
a supply of oxygen which is the great vitalizing
principle—while at the same moment they take
from the blood the impurities and worn out mat
ter of the system, which escapee in the exhaled
That the lungs are the organs of physical pow
er is more abundantly shown in the feat that the
strength of an anitnal or person is always in pro
portion to the extent of this respiratory surface
--in other words the power of notion is ail the
size of the lungs. The strongest persons are
always those with the most healthy actions and
Well developed lungs—the man with a full round
chest and active lungs has the most perfect mus
cular development, and is known at a glanoe as a
wrong man, while the feebleness of one who has
a thin chest, stooping shoulders and ma?! mus
cles is equally obvious.

The defeat of the Ministry, in Parliament, on
the Conspiracy to
, *urder bill, which we noted
last week, led,,as might be expected, and as was
intended by the leaders of the Opposition, to the
resignation of Palmerston and his associates.
The tender,of the seals of office was, probably to
the disappointment of the, Premier, accepted by
her Msjesty. Lord Derby was sent for. He ac
eeeded to the royal request, rind prcieeeded to the
construction of a Government, The event was
announced in Parliament, and an adjournment
took place, to be continued to the 12th of March,
thus affording time to the new Ministry to ar
range for the prosecution of business.
Lord Derby was unable to induce the leaders
of the different branches of the Opposition, who
had combined to put down Lord Palmerston, to
accept office under his leadership. He was hence
obliged to construct his Cabinet, mainly, of his
own party friends, a party which, of itself, is a
minority. He is thus, though personally strong,
being first rate in talents, politically weak; and
weak, also, as is represented, in the personel of
his associates, but two of them, Lord Bilenbor
ongh and Mr. Disraeli, being men of the upper
grade among the great. The Cabinet embraces:
Firel Lord of the Treasury—Earl of Derby.
Chancellor of the Exchcquer-Right Hon. Ben
jamin Disraeli.
Lord Chancellor—Sir Frederic Thesiger.
The Home Departmint—ltight Hon. Spencer H.
The Foreign Deparimant—Earl of Malmeebnry.
The Colonial Department—Lord•Stanley.
The War Depariment---General reel.
Fimri Lord of the Admiralty—Right Hon. Sir
John Pakington.

outline, ns a robe of penance ought to be. The oc
casion being one of duty, it almost precludes
criticism in fact, nil the remark it is possible to
make on the procrsinme before us is that one or
two of the arrangements are respectable.
But was it ever proved so plain that they who
were not wise before experience will not be wise
after? Lord Derby has positively not nne fl cce--
Bina of strength since the days when he repeat
edly declined the offer of power for want of men.
He has not a Man more than he had when be in
formed her Majesty that, whatever the inherent
goodness of his (muse, he had scarcely a states
man of note on his side. Ali that can he said is
that be has kept his Dock together, a praise com
mon to every refuge, and to the lowest place
wherever gravitation has free play. Either these
gentlemen have immediately risen in the scale of
creation, or England has immensely sunk, if she
accepts her new rulers without's remonstrance.
We should be glad to see Lord Derby's politi
cal path laid with the softest turf. and cleared of
all the dangers that proverbially lie in the course
of a statesman. Yet, even at the best, we have
some serious misgivings.. We are fal: more sure
of our loss than of our gain in the exchange we
have just suffered. Grant that there is some•
thing low in political ability, and that intellect is
of this world, yet we do not feel quite confident
that the present gain of moral worth is such as to
dispense with those vulgar applianoes.
Nor can it be forgotten that this is'a practical
world. Parliament, after performing a grand act
of faith in the immolation of Palmerston and his
recreant colleagues, will probably spend some
time, at least the fortnight's recess, in a pleasing
thrill of self complacency. It will see Brittania
bolding the balance, wherein Palmerston and
'Clarendon kick the beam, while Derby, Malmes
bury, and the other champions of English honor
descend with native gravity. But the . grandest
spectacles weary in time, and the indefatigable
Malice and ingenuity of politicians are sure to
raise np new questions, in which old scores will,
be forgotten, and intellect, expediency, and such
hard things once more hold sway. When this is
the case—when it comes to India, to 'Chins, to
Parliamentary Reform, to the consolidation of
our laws, to a dozen other subjects impending
over us, it remains to be ascertained whether the
new Ministry will hold their own—to use the vul
gar slang of secular politicians—against the old.
Mere moral worth, even in the shape of a grand
national penance, will not count long against
either commercial or political utilities.
The Ministry is likely to be short-lived.
France. ,
The fall of the British Ministry produced a
deep sensation in France. It was unexpected.
It weakens Napoleon's 'prestige, and may affeet
the strength of the alliance. Some good_ roan
agement is , needful, and'a conciliatory spirit was
immediately manifest. The correspondent of the
Times says : •
The result of the diiision on the Conspiracy to
Murder bill has produced a great'sensation among
all classes of people here. - The Ministerial or
gans evidently did , not expect such a result, sand
are much taken aback. Their language has lost
something, of its vainglorious style. In official
quarters no trifling bewilderment is apparent, and
even people who are not -Oyer•friendly toward
England, admit that matters have been carried
too far with ha.. There is a pretty general feel
ing that a series of unfortunate, blunders has
been e.ommitted. It is difficult for ordinary men
to 'explain, nnless'on suppositions of the strongest
kind; Mistakes which a novice in government
could' hardly have oommitted—M. de Moray's ad
dress, the military addresses, and, what is as
great a blunder as either, M. Walewski's famous
dis Pitch. Some regret, the , fall of Lord Palmer
ston, bat nearly all concur in condemning the
causes which led to it. Pew can recall without
indignation the language of the Colonels, or
without shame the statement of a French Minis
ter, that in England the doctrine of assassination
is openly preached.
The French law relative to measures of gen

The removal of Mrs'. H. seems a heavy afflic
tion. She was called suddenly away. A 'fond
husband would fain have - detained Tyro
little ones, now Motherless, seemed to plead for
.her stay.' The stricken faMily, Whose Pride ahe
was, would still have found great delight, had
God's will have been so, in her frequent visits to
the, paternal home, and her ;cheerful presence
among them. s But at an unlooked for moment,
she was not.. Thus it pleased' God. Yet, there
is liope infier death. A Christianprofession bad
Peen borne by her for some years. -in the judg
ment of men,, here was the spirit
,of a Christian.
A. short time before her death, lite could say to
her pastor, who was suddenly called to her death
bed, and who; after having- brought up such
truths ,as suited her case, was about to leave,
"Come again, very soon, it does me so much good
to hear of these things." Bre the visit had been
repeated a secondlime, another had bidden her
to oome to Him. "!Be ye -also ready:" •

daughter of Henry Balding, of Ohio, 'in the 35th
Year of her age.
The deceased united with the Presbyterian
Church of Booneville, Ohio, some six or eight
years ago, on profession of her faith. In the
Spring of 1856, ehe removed with her husband,
to whom she was married, in the year 1841, to
Illinois, within the bounds of the French Grove
Preobyterlin church, With which she united by
certificate. Her numerous friends need net this
record' of her Memory, to remind thent of her
Worth. ••ins lone as memory lasts, will f iiei roes
turnable virtues be remembered. None knew her
but to love her. She lived a Christian's life, and
died as a trueAristiaa only can die. Truly, her
end was peace, Her sickness, *deb lasted tbree
weeks, was most painful; yet she•bore it without
' one murmur escaping her lips. To the inquiry,
" DI you f•tel that you have the Saviour with you
' now, in your affliction?" the replied, a ley suf
ferings I could not have endured, had I not a
• Saviour to trust in. I have trusted my all in Lie
hands, and he has not forsaken me. He is a
friend that sticketh closer than a brother. Death
1 has no terrors for me, when my Saviour is so
near." Thus she was sustained (luring all her
painful sickneSs. Her peaceful death was anoth
er witness to the triumphs of Christianity. Her
death chamber seemed the vestibule of heaven.
She has left a heart.stricken, bereaved husband,
with four children, and a large circle of , friends
and acquaintances, to'mourn a loss that can nev
er be supplied on'earth. The church, als'o, has
been bereaved; as we trust; to increase the num
ber of the Church triumphant. Bit why shook
we mourn ? The Saviour God is but:Calling home
his jewels. He says, "Be Ye also ready. Weep
ye not for.the dead." Weep for the , living. " The
living know that, they Anil die, but the dead know
not any .thing. Blessed are the dead which Alie
in the Lord ;•that they may rest from their labors;
and their works do follow them." h!cF.
