Voetrp, ]fir the Presbyterian Banner and &mate The Three Beggars. LINES FOR Tan TIBBS. A traveler passed athwart my way, Bending with age, wrinkled and gray; His looks were careworn and forlorn, And his coat was tattered all and torn. Thus in misfortlines chilling blast, His tide of life Seemed ebbing fast; It seemed:to him a wofal task, Andhis.p . sle cheek blushed, an aims to ask. On thilame pathway, there was seen A perisonage of different mien ; Oniiin whom life's crimsoned tide 'Flowed, in manhood's strength and pride. As pompously he onward aped, He scorned the man who begged for bread; But now, with me, his conduct note, Se begs of yonder man his vote. With, craving , spirit he will go To those who office•oan bestow ; And'even•tiurow the truth away, Or principle, that win he,may. Now is it not a less disgrace To beg:for bread, than beg for place; And must our offices be filled By those in begging tactics drilled; IX as of' Cid, lave we not now Some Cincinnatus at his plow, Who, herd at toil, is well content That undisturbed his days be spent; And-yet.who will prove truly great, If called to steer the ship of State. Bat list t there is one beggar more ; I hear him, through his closed door, And one whose strong desires are known By'his deep, supplicating tone. He asks not man for bread or place, Buti asks that, through God's boundless grace, His many sibs may be forgiven, And he a passport have to bea'ven. 'Tis he who does the Lord believe, Who says, " Ask and ye shall receive," Or, as 'tis pressed up,pn his mind In these sweet words, "Seek ye and find,". From him shall sins be washed away, And, servant like, at close of day From all, his labors he shall rest, And the morn rise with the blest, On everlasting joys to feast, Unto his. God a king and, priest. 0 ye who beg„beg of the 'Lord, And as directed in his Word ; And seek ye not for earthirfame, But in the Lamb's book fora name.

The ~author states that he desired to make the mirk is auto biographical'as possible in order to set Zwingli_before the reader as 'he' lived and wrought. He has eminently succeeded inzlis task; and the simplicity said clearness of the &Alan, the lucid order and fullness of detail,' while all magniloquence and verbosity are rigidly excluded, combine in producing a perfect Photo- graph of the Great Swiss Reformer. This is one of the most valuable historical works which the house of T., and I'.

We may add that the fine paper and clear typography are worthy of the Edinburgh press, from which the 'work ema nates. EVANGISLIOAL ININDITATIONEL By the late Rev.

We expect ed no hiss !rem the honorable Boston house who are uhieffy entigeiV in supplying the •Aruelioina , market, and we trust tthat all the adtaiFers of Hugh Miller leliltreliereban this intimation. Shortly after the ,Dierpitibit in 'the .qtirch of Scotland, the feelings f the landed gent 7 :Highlands and in the Isles of Scotland, were die-* played in opposition to the Free Dlinrch minis tern to an extent that is now scarcely credible. Sites for churches were refused. Dwellings for the miaistera were refused, and the tenantry were threatened if they were known to harbor in their houses, the pastors who broke to them the bread of _life. In this emergency, a small ves sel was procured for the Free Church minister of Small Isles, the Rev. Mr. Swanson, who sailed about from one district to another, and thus kept alive the flame of devotion among his scattered people. The first part of this volume is the nar rative of a cruise among the Hebrides in the Free Church Yacht, " The Betsey." Like all' the pro ductions of Mr. Miller, it is characterized by his extraordinary pictorial power. In one respect, Geology is one of the -driest of the Sciences, yet hire as well as in the " Old Red," and in the "Footprints" he brings to his aid such beauty of description, snob .fertility of illustration, such gushes of poetry, and over all, such enthusiasm, that even the unscientific reader is carried away in transport. Without committing ourselves to all the theories of the lamented author, we shall hail the appearance of the successive volumes of this remarkable series.

For the Proshyterhat Banner and Advomte . Tribute of Respect At a meeting of the Session of. the Washington Presbyterian church, the following. minute, pre pared by a Committee appointed far the purpose, was approved and ordered to be . published in the 'Presbyterian - B(1=0r and Advocate. James Ewing, for three years past an active and efficient member of Session, departed this life, at his residence in this place, on Monday. the 21st of June. It affords the members of Session a mournful pleasure to bear testimony to the promptitude and- fidelity with which our departed brother discharged his duty as an overseer of the flock; to the wisdOm, moderation, and zeal teethe glo, ry of God, which characterized his official con duct; and to his humble, yet confident relience upon the Atodement of our Lord Jesus Christ, as the only ground of acceptance and salvation. Be it, therefore, Resolved, That the Clerk be directed to enter this minute upon the Eecords of Session, to fur nish a copy to the family and friends of Mr. Ewing, and to assure them of 'our cordial sympa thy in this hour of sore bereavement, and of the confidence with whibh we commend to them the words of the gracious Master: "What I do, thou knowest not now, but thou shalt know hereafter " A: copy from the Record. JOSEPH .111LNDICESON, Clerk. Washington, .Pa., July 4, 1868. D.A. Traveling Correspondence. WASHINGTON, Ohio, May, 1858 We parted with our readers, last week, on our arrival at New York. The confusion both on board . and on.ehore as we neared the landing in that notable city, was truly great, hut to me very amusing. The Spaniards were all in commotion, the tongue of each rattled like the haminer of an alarm bell. The captain ascended the wheel hoise and issued his many commands in a stentorian voice • the - sailors sung in chorus their he-no hundreds of trunks were jerked about over the deck, and examined by the t.fficials from the custom house; and a perfect swarm of hackmerf were shoutino• the names of the hotels to which they wrshed to take 11Elk As our ship touched the pier, a number of these gentry attempted. to .climb on deck ; but the sailors'repelled 'them by throwing down buckets of water. They then `tied their cards to the point of their whiplashes and - held them out toward us similar to fishermen. These fellows are • a very, great nuisance; and the authorities of our large cities should pass some law to protect travel ers from such annoyances. The scene from Sandy Hook up to the city, is, indeed,, very beautiful. There is no other place in our country, I suppose, where so many royal residenees, fine gardens, and lovely lawns can be seen, as here, on both Staten and Long, Island. The fortifi cations appear immensely strong. Ido not think there is a fleet in existence diet Could enter this harbor contrary' to our wishes as a paten. This being my, first sea voyage almost everything connected - with marine matters, has filled me with astonishment. Ni nian in this world can wither more fearful end impressive exhibithins of power; than are presented by the mighty ocean.: Nor are these as Monotonous as 'lad supposed, but changing as the most perfeet kaleidoscope. Here eau-be seen within the compass of a few knots all that is beautiful, grand, sub• lime, terrific and awful. No natural mirror reflects more of the majesty of the Almighty than the' rolling deep.. The volcano, that vomits, torrents of-fire; the earthquake, that engulphs cities in a moment ; the avalanche, that tears off, the sides of mountains ; the tempest, that levels- forests to the, ground ; -and the thundering cataract, that dashes. ; to death all that comes within the reach of its power; these all set forth the greatness of God, yet they are all circumscribed in the range of their desolating visitations.

For tifenty•four hours after :tanning, 'we were comfortably quartered at the A tor. In a few minutes a messenger ..band us e a dispatch, announcing "ail teelr at h Mel HE PRESBYTERIAN BANNER AND ADVOCATE. in reply to one sent from No. 21 Wall Street. In the afternoon we sauntered out to see the city. A long walk up Broadway made us feel that New York is always new. At least if looked almost as much so to me as if I had never seen it before. What a noise I What a rush and confusion I What magnificent houses, well paved streets and shady parks! What beautiful carriages and well dressed .people. This is certainly the great city of this Western continent. I took a look at old scenes in Fifth Avenue; spent an hour in the nicely furnished rooms of the Young Men's Christian Association;was curious enough to visit "No. 31 Bod Street," of Burdell notoriety; was at the Bible House ; walked down , the Bowery to Grand, and then to Broadway, where I saw a sign announcing, "Prayer-meeting in this room every day from 6to7P. M. Come in—all are net come." So I dropped in, and saw a large room partly filled with people. The services were about commencing. He who lead, ap peared as awkward as he was darned. A verse , or two were sung, and then a prayer; after which remarks were made by a very diirrthiiiirwhont tool % ikrbe 1174'student. Again we had singing. and an excellent prayer. Remarks were then called for. For a time no one arose. At last a stranger got up and spoke of the inscription " To ,the Unknown God," seen by Paul in Athens, and compared' it "with that en the, banner over the door at which we'all had entered. He was listened to with good attention ;.and when-he closed, a woman near him called out,M,Ood,bless. the stranger." We went from that room refreshed, although disap. proving of some things wesaw and heard The next day we left for Washington City. A fine ride of a few hours through the "kingdom of Camden and Amboy," brought us to Philadelphia. Our stay here was short, more BO than was -agreeable.; but our arrangements were such as not to admit of delak. We Merely ejaculated, all hail, beau tiful Philadelphia. Some jealous brethren in ,our Church fear , 'the concentration of ecclesiastical power in thee. But Ido not, itia - rigatriver Pray thit"God may increase thy influence for good tenfold, and make every city in Our land do for Presbyterian ism, what thin' haat done. All hail, thou model of order, peace and beauty ! We shot through Baltimore like a shuttle,. and before the sun set, Were safely and corn. and roomed at "Millard's'," of Wash ington. For six days we roamed about this city, seeing sights, hearing wonders, and mak: bag acquaintances, and I hope frisias also. The Hon. W. 'Lawrence, of the seventeenth diatrict of Ohio, was our daily companion, and to him I am much indebted for the rare privilege Of going where, s and of hear ing.what, I did. He took me into the Seri • ate chamber; then into the grand Hall of the House of Representatives, where' I lounged about a whole day on - the soft seats, learriing the art of law-making. The ma ehinery is quite complicated, more so I thought than necessary, and when *motion on some matters it is awfully 'noisy, a cir. oumstanoe truly annoying to an unsophisti cated countryman like myself. But there are a, great many wise, upright, worthy, men here 'tfho are always at their posts striving to do their duty both to their constituents and 'their country. Among these btu happy to rank my worthy friend Mr. L. And what ever others may say or think of this qingresa, it has the reputation in this city of being one of the most temperate and respectable that ever sat in this Capitol ; although it has been disgraced by some foolish and beim siderite members who, in the heat of debate, allowed their passions to get the better of their prudence. We, ministers, know how easily this might take place among two hun dred and fifty politicians, thrown together, from all parts of the land, representing dif ferent and even opposite interests, when even we, the professed arnbassadora of the Prince of: Peace, sometimes in our Church courts, allow our feelings to glow with a binning, zeal rather above that raised by an ardent piety. The evils of Cengress are blazed abroad; the good lives after it ad journs. The hall is magnificent beyond .desorip. tion, but not a whit more so than it ought to be, nor than the United States are able to 'hive it be. No parsimony 'uppears so mean as' that of a nation, unleis it be that of . a rich congregation, and.this'ii so . perfectly contemptible as to horrify me to think of it. The heating, ventilating, and illuminating fixtures of the Capitol, are' very complicated and costly, but melt arrangements are truly admirable and highly conduciVe to safety, health, convenience, and comfort. These, with' the mammoth marble struoture that con tams them, I have neither time nor power to describe. Suffice it to say that all, as'well as - , the Interior Department, (commonly called-the Patent Office,) and the Post Office, and the Treasury buildings, and the White House and all the grounds around, are on a scale of elegance that strikes the mind of every beholder at first with wonder, and gives him enlarged views of the powers of a nation. On Saturday evening, I beard the Marine Band play in the Capitol grounds„ and saw thousands of well-behaved and well, dressed men, women and children, congre gated in the green. It was truly most delightful'seene. Such . meetings certainly have a refining influence on all *hose' priv ilege it is . to attend them weekly. The day I was in Congress the celebrated contested election case from the Third Die. trict 'of Ohio, bet Ween Messrs. Campbell and Vallandighani, was up: The speeches were brilliant and often truly eloquent. 0, that some of us ministers could catch a tithe of this-zeal ! Surely we could make the people feel more,than we sometimes do. Bat let it be remembered we all -who read this, that these speeches have been preparing for six or eight months, during which time every minister, has not less than , thirty or forty, sermons to prepare. Still Ido think, our pulpits might be more animated if we would lay aside the manuscript and the formalities of the schools. I heard three sermons on the Sabbath, all from Dr. J. A. Alexander, of Princeton, and I would have been glad to have heard three more from the same source on the same day. 0, such preaching'? Profound, clear, rich, instructive. And such prayers—every word appropriate, coming from a heart glow ing with an 'unction from heaen. I noticed among the audience in the` evening; Gen Cass, Gov. Wickliff, of Kentucky, and Pres ident, Buchanan. They all paid the most Marked attention to the discourse. No one slept that I could see. This pleased me: If piety does not, politeness' ought to keep people awake during Divine service on the Sabbath. Sleeping in church is a miserably vulgar habit, and= should at once be aban doned. Reader, do you sleep in church? If you do, shame ! But •I wont scold, but go on to say that on Monday, the President spoke in terms of the highest commendation of the sermon he heard the evening before, and of the won derful concentration of thought evinced by the speaker. We inquired if he were per .sonally acquainted with Dr. A. 4,e said not .personally, but well by ,reputatiod. a You are aware, Mr., 8.," said I, 4 ' that Dr. Alexander is a bachelor." "Is it possible," he ,one minifter, fiKe.NT, been allowed` io escape the nuptial noose g" "Why not ?" said I. "Because," said he, , " the clergy are all so popular with the ladies." " And so are Presidents," said- 1, " but one of them has in some way managed to avoid the yoke." At this he laughed and said something about Paul's celibacy. From the mansion we went again to the Capitol. The Senate was in session. We went into the gallery and got a good view of the Vice President. He is a goodlook ing, wide-awake, accomplished gentleman— one whose words and manners are dignified and prepossessing. We saw no one in this body who presents a finer appearance than Hon. Mr. Seward, of New York, and next to him is- Mr. Crittenden, of Kentucky. To Mr. Douglas, we were introduced in the Hall of Representatives; 'and"we made free to ask him whether he was the good - or bad Douglas, of whom so much was said in the public prints, intimating that surely there must;be two of them. " I'm neither," said he; , " for if I was the bad one, I- ought to be hung, and if the good one, I am too good for a politician ' I am simply S.,A. Douglas, of Illinois, andhave in me a mixture of both good and bad." He spoke this in the most pleasant mannerpossible, with a countenance indicating much good humor Be is very courteous, 'full of animation, moves quickly, is quite social, and never seems fearful of low ering histdignity by a courteous notice of whoever approaches- him. Reports of Douglas, and of all other pub lie Men, should be received with much al lowance. They are not the saints their friends represent them to be,- nor are they the fiends, their enemies Vuld make them. What, groat injustice we sometimes do to our great Men. Who has not villified the immortal Clay on the one band, or Jackson on the ritlier ? Both were wise, noble, patri otic; both did Much for'our country; both, I hope,„died Christian& Speaking of Jack. son, reminds me of a letter of his in relation to his •burial, that I saw posted up in the Patent Office, that is worthy of notice. -In 184, Commodore Elliott found in Beirut, in Syria, the repository of the remains of the Roman Emperor, Alexander Severna; and a marble slab that had formed part of the temple erected by the great Miltiades on the plains of Marathon,. after his famous victory over the Persians, about f hundred and ninety yeatsbefere Christ. These the Cmanno dome sent to Jackson, to 'he toed as his sarco phagus. The letteris the reply of the Chris tian (*mere!, and is truly characteristic, of his repxiblican simplicity. After the most polite acknowledgment. of the favors of his friend, Jackson says.: , " I have prepared an humble depository for iny'mortal body, beside that wherein lies my beloVed wife, where;without any`pomp or parade, have requested, wben my God calls me to sleep with my fathers, to be laid ler ,Voth of ,us there to remain until the last trump shall sound to call the dead to judg . ment, when we, I hope, shall rise together, clothed with that heavenly body promised to all who believe in our- glorious Redoemer, who died , for us that we might live,. and• by whose atonement I hope for a blessed immor tality." This is alike creditable to the head and heart ,of the hero-of New Orleans. Three years ago, we stood lay the tomtvat the Her mitage, near Nashville, Tenn., where this great man and his wife now sleep in death How fragrant with piety are the sentiments in this extract! The reader wearies; but I must say a few words about the great Sabbath &Awl Celebration that_took place' in this city on Monday, May th. Thirtyone schoels were represented. More than five thousand children were in procession.. They had many silk flags, and two bands of . music. They looked beautiful. Having assembled in the lo . vely groundearound the Smithson ian, a number, of good addresses were made; when each school filed off to its own church, to partake of refreshments provided for the occasion: It was our good fortune to fall in with the school of the Second Baptist church, and share the hospitalities of the pastor, Rev. Mr. Greer, and family. On Thursday, we left for home. Came back to Baltimore, took the night train for Wheeling, g ot to Piedmont for breakfast and had the,pleasure of crossing the moun tains in daylight. Next to the sea, moan tains fill me with admiring awe. What a contrast these bleak tops present, compared with the rich verdure and foliage of Cuba ! The leaves here are only beginning to come out ; the .eorn is not planted. There the leaves are always out, and there we got plenty of green corn, a few days ago. How cold the air here I"It is spitting snow. •In Havana, the mercury was ranging aboie 90 0 in the shade. How we can change the sea sons by these ears and steamers ! We came to the Ohio river in the after noon. It actually appeared small, although it was full froni bank to, bank. We crossed,' and a ride,of a few scores of miles brought us home, where we received the gratulations of many friends. ,God had watched over and protected us during a journey of over five thousand miles—one fifth the distance round ihe globe—without a 'single mishap or hour of sickness, excepting that endured on the sea. -Our trip was of great advantage to us, physically, intellectually, and socially, if not Spiritually. Health much improved; mind, I trust, enlarged; many, very many, valued acquaintances formed; and more than ever convinced that ours is. the best country in the world—that Ohio is aboutthe best State in the Union—that the region East of the Muskingum .river is the best portion of Ohio, and that'our village is the most spirit ed; enterprising, literary places in that re gion.

An Interesting Incident. "Bank Note Reporter, sir Three more Banks down !" said a bright little boy of less than half a more years, as he entered a contiting-house - in Broad Street, one morn ing, witka bundle of papers under his arm. Ae he entered, ,two,gentlemen were seated in front eta warm fire, engaged in thought less conversation. " Bank Note Reporter, Mr ?" said the little boy,_ "No !" replied one of the gentlemen; " we don't* want any." " But stop," added he; " if you will sing as along, we will buy one, of your Reporters." • The boy agreed to the terms, and the gen tiemen, with an fir that showed that they wire anticipating sport, placed the little fel losvuport-a high stool, which was standing near, and bade him proceed to sing.' ' They then waited, evidently expecting to hear Home jovial song, when, to their astonish. meat, he commenced singing that most beautiful little hymn : "Ilthink, when I read that sweet of old, When Jesus was here among men, How he called little children as lambs to his fold, I should like to haie been with them then." The effect „pen, hie;Thitenarewas at one Pergeptitiley and' betore he had finighiellie four verses, they were both in tears. After he had finished, one of the gentlemen in. quired, "'Where did you learn that hymn?" "At Sabbath School," replied the boy. " But what Sabbath School ?" continued the gentleman. "At Spring Street Sabbath School," was the reply. The gentlemen then purchased the Re porter, and presented him with a sum of money in addition, after which he was al lowed to go on his way, bat not until they had called him back to obtain his name and residence. A Sabbath School teacher chanced to be present and witnessed the whole interview, and his heart rejoiced as he discovered that the bright-eyed little boy was'C scholar' in his own Sabbath School. How often does the simple eloquence of childhood reach the heart when the more elaborate efforts of years are unavailing.— Evangelist. • The Polite Boy. The other day we were riding in &crowd ed car. At one of the stations an old gen tleman entered, and was lookingaround him for a seat, ,when a lad ten or twelve years of age, rose up, and said, " Take my seat, sir." The offer was accepted, and the infirm old Man sat down. " Why did you give Me your seat?" he inquired of the boy. " Be-- -cause you are old, air, and-I am a boy," was the quick reply. The passengers were very much pleased and gratified. For my part, I wanted to seize hold of the little fellow and press him to my bosom. It was a re spect forage, which is, always praiseworthy. When a boy or girl does not reverence the aged, it is a sure sign "that' they are evil in more respects than one. We once saw a lad ran after a lame old man in the street, and hoot after him ; but he was known as one of the worst lads in the village. He would swear, disobey his parents, rob orchards, and do other things equally bad. We feel quite sure that the polite boy in the cars never uses wicked or vulgar wordi. His parents probably can trust him.—Child's Paper. Agricultural. Butter Makiiig A writer in Entery's Journal of Agricul ture on the subject of making butter, says, that in all various changes through which milk passes before it becomes butter, utter cleanliness is indispensable, and this cannot be too often held up to view. Next, re member, milk and cream want air, and pure sweet air at that; no one should cover a cream pan or put cream in a large, high stone jar or crock, if they intend making first quality butter; and now, ,if I can, I will put thinga in order. The Milking,.—This should be done with clean hands and short finger nails. • The same cows should be milked by the same hands as much- as possible, and as quick; much conversation or singing should not be tolerated during milking time; the times of milking should be twelve hours apart, as near as may be. Milk should be strained, as soon as it can be brought in buttery or cellar, and I am of opinion, that if the milk of several cows is a little mixed, it will produce butter of a more uniform color ,'six or ten quart pans made_ of tin are in common use; glass would be better. Milk should not sour under thirty-six hours, if in a right tem perature:; if it does, your milk pans have not been well scalded and cleaned. When your cream is taken from the milk,' let a little milk pass along with it in the cream pan. Milk should not sour, and cream should, not be of the consistency of sole leather. The. Ohurning —This should be done every day in a dairy where there are eight cows or more. At a:temperature of sixty two degrese,' butter 'will `come (if the cows have salt regularly,) in about thirty minutes. "'would not have it come sooner if I could; churns that propose to bring butter in five minutes area humbug. Washing. Butter.—lt has been and per haps still is thought an open question, whether it ,is necessary or even proper to wash butter, but I deny it. It is a settled point, a fixed fact, that butter should be washed if it is intended to be packed. All through the dairy counties of New York, washing is thought indispensable to make a good article for packing A late Weekly Tribune contains a letter from the Hon .A. B. Dickinson, recommending cool soft water to wash your butter, "without which, no man or woman can get the milk out with,- out injuring the grain ;" " soft water is= as necessary to wash butter, as fine linen " Immediately after washing, place the butter in a large wooden bowl, spread it well out, and add about an ounce of salt to the pound. " Liverpool Blown" or " Turk's Island" is best; if New York salt is used, the " solar salt" is preferable; the other contains lime, which injures butter; let it stand twelve hours, work over so as to thor oughly mix the salt, pour off what brine will come out, notice whether it is entirely free from, milk, and pack immediately, taking, care to well cover your firkin. A churning of butter which does not corres pond from heat or other cause in color or flavor with what has been packed should be sold or used in the family. The family sup ply should never be packed, -but kept by itself. The sooner a firkin is filled, the better; then 'place over the butter a clean damp linen, and salt an inch or so thick and head up. Preparing Firkins-- Generally hard wood firkins are preferred; take out the head and fill with soft water (rain -water, if handy,) and allow it to stand forty-eight hours, then take a scrubbing brush and scour well, next scald in hot water, and when well cooled it will be ready to receive your butter. Al ,ways use a new and not an About the Weather A weather prophet, writing to an , agrical• turat paper, says " When you wish to know what the weather is to he, go out and select the smallest cloud you oan see ; keep your eye upon it, and if it decreases or disap appears, it shows state of air which is sure to be' followed by fine `weather; but if it increase's in size, take your great coat with you, for falling weather will not be fir off. The reason is this: when the air is becoming charged with electricity, you will see every cloud attracting the lesser ones to it, until it gathers into a shower; and, on the , con trary, when the fluid is passing off, or diffusing itself, then - a large cloud will be seen breaking to pieces and dissolving." Anthraciie AAA's Anthracite Ashes, long considered worth less to 'vegetation, are endued with proper ties rendering them somewhat valuable as manure. Those who red . & in the, vicinity of cities and other places where this coal is used as fuel, and where the ashes , can be obtained in large quantities and at small cost, will find this article's matter' of import atice'to their Waling interests, if or9Perly applied. Prof. Henry, of the Smithsonian Institu tion, has collected facts respecting the inte rior of the United States, which will com mand the attention of scientific men and Statesmen. The induction from these facts is, that the entire region of the United States West of the 98° of West longitude, (say the Western boundry of Minnesota) with the exception of a small portion of West ern Texas, and the narrow border along tte Pacific (including Califoinia), is a sterile waste of comparatively little value, and which can never be available to the agricul turalist. The importance of this statement will be more fully comprehended when it is considered that the line of Prof. Henry, which extends Southward from Lake Win nipeg to the Mexican Gulf, will divide the surface of the United States into nearly two equal parts. The intense heat. and extreme dryness of this region, which will make the Great American Plains a barren waste forever, is caused, to a large extent, according to Prof. Henry's theory, by the fact that the return ing Trade Winds, sweeping over the eleva ted masses of the Rocky Mountains, are -deprived of their moisture; in other words, the heated air which ascends at the equator, saturated with moisture it has extracted in its passage over the ocean, after depositing a portion of its vapor in the tropics at the rainy season, is further desiccated by, the r dges and mountains which it meets, tbe vapor being condensed on the windward de by the cold due to the increased verti cal height, and it finally passes over and strikes the plains as dry as a sponge which has been thoroughly squeezed. Without moisture there can be no fertility, no-agri culture; and .a great portion of this wilder ness, according to Prof. Henry, is as irre deemably barren, for the purposes of agri culture, as the deserts of Africa. If this theory be true, it will- greatly modify the opinions which have been entertained by politicians and Statesmen of the future des tiny of the " Great West " Piof. Henry stated these facts to us a few days since, which we confess, greatly modified our ideas of the vast 'extent of Territory which we had always supposed was yet to be filled with human habitations, like the already productive prairie States bordering the Mississippi'—Exchange. The process now gefierally practised in the manufacture of gas, consists in "placing from one to three five and even twelve re torts in an oven h ' eated by a fire fed with a portion of the coke left from the distillation of coal. These retorts are long cast iron or clay tubes, open at one end, and closed by means of a plate listed with soft clay. It is furnished with a pipe, through which the gas, as it is generated, Oases off to the con densers, purifiers, and gas-holders. The re torts are kept at a cherry red heat; a Charge of coal is shoveled in, and the retort dosed. Tim gas and vapors contained in the coal, soon begin to be evolved, and continue to distil until nothing but dry coke remains in the retorts The richest gas is generated_in `the first three hattre, and it requires from four to'eight hours to exhaust the coal. In the best managed, gas works the charges are renewed every four hours, the quantity and quality of gas varying with almost every kind of coal used. Cannel coal gives the richest gas, and in large qui.ntities; but as. it leaves only a little coke, it is not econom ical to use it alone. A mixture of cannel with coking coal, in certain'portions, affords the, best results; but the redaction of the quantity of cannel coal below a certain standard, is soon perceivable, by a diminu tion in the illuminating power of the gas flame, and an increase of cost to the con sumer. On an average, a ton of, mixed' good gas coals produces eight or ten thou sand cubic feet of gas, or from four to five feet per pound, twelve hundred pounds of coke, two hundred to three hundred pounds of tar, and the same quantity of anamoniaeal water. One pound of rosin gives, in the old rosin apparatus, from six to nine feet - of `gas,- the illuminating power of which is greater than that of ordinary coal gas as five to three.
